神爱世人,甚至将他的独生子赐给他们,叫一切信他的,
不至灭亡,反得永生。(约3:16).

【双语灵修】葛培理:最要紧的是相信耶稣(2017-4-14)

相信耶稣 Believe in Jesus

读经

耶稣回答说:“信上帝所差来的,这就是做上帝的工。” 约翰福音 6:29

Jesus told them, “This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent.” JOH N 6 : 2 9

默想

你可能做了很多好事,甚至为这个世界做了很大贡献,但是,这不一定是上帝真正要你做的。上帝真正要你做的,只有一件事。他只有一个要求。岁月流逝,当你回顾往事,你可能感到很开心,因为你做了不少好事,做了很多次好人,但是,上帝只在乎一件事:你是否相信耶稣基督。

当然,如果你相信耶稣,你也一定会做好事,这是很自然的结果。因为好行为出自信心,出自活在你内心深处的耶稣。相信主耶稣基督,生命中没有比这更重要的事情了。

It would be wrong, in a book all about making a difference in this world, to give the impression that somehow your good works are what God ultimately wants from you. God actually wants only one thing from you; he has only one requirement. At the end of your life, as you look back over the years, it would be nice to remember the good things you accomplished or ways you were kind. But whether or not you believed in Jesus will be what God ultimately cares about the most.

After all, if you believe in Jesus, the good works will come—they will follow. Good deeds are simply a natural overflow of Jesus being alive within you. There is nothing in life that makes more of a difference than this one thing: Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.

祷告

耶稣,我信你。我信你为我舍命,你叫我跟随你。你叫我传扬你的福音,改变这个世界!

Jesus, I believe in you. I believe you died for me and you want me to follow you. I believe you want to use me to impact this world with your good news. Jesus, I place my life in your hands. I believe in you. Amen.

行动

信耶稣的实际表现是什么?什么需要改变?什么不需要改变?你的信仰如何影响你对他人的态度?如何帮助你度过难关?如何帮助你预备好和他人的分享?

What would belief in Jesus look like practically today? What would need to change? What would stay the same? How would belief in Jesus impact the way you treat others, approach a tough situation, or prepare you for a meeting?
