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:你有永生之道(2017-4-15)

永生之道 Nowhere Else

读经

西门·彼得 回答说:“主啊,你有永生之道,我们还归从谁呢?” 约翰福音 6:68

Simon Peter replied, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life.” JOH N 6 : 6 8

默想

一些人离开了教会。原因很简单:他们认为自己有这样的自由,可以做自己的选择,谁也留不住他们,当然,也许还有其他原因。反正,他们就这么离开了。

当年,一些人也是那样,离开了耶稣。他们的生命中容纳不了耶稣,所以就抛弃了耶稣。他们认为耶稣的要求太苛求完美。一些人只是犹豫不决,一些人则拔腿就跑。这时候,耶稣问他最亲的门徒:你们也要去吗?彼得,脾气最急的那个,回答主,他实在不知道除了跟随耶稣,他还能去哪里。 因为他知道,耶稣的光就是要照亮黑暗,刺穿这个世界,直达永生之道,他们无法回避。

Many people leave the church simply because they can, feeling like they have a choice in the matter. They don’t feel compelled to stay. For whatever reason, many just slip away through the crowd.

There was a time when many people left the crowd that was following Jesus too. They deserted him because they couldn’t stomach Jesus’ calling on their lives. What Jesus was asking them to do was too radical. And once a few people started wandering away, many others took the easy route too. As a result of this, Jesus turned to his closest followers and asked, “Are you going to leave too?” That’s when Peter, the roller-coaster adrenaline disciple, declared that he couldn’t imagine anywhere else they would rather be. Jesus was too startlingly compelling, too earth-shatteringly true, too eternally good.

祷告

耶稣,你抓紧我的心,抓紧我周围的人,让我们跟随你,改变这个世界。阿们!

Dear Jesus, grab ahold of my heart and squeeze tight. Grab ahold of those around me too. Let me be a part of an unflinching movement of world changers. Amen.

行动

想想身边,有没有人在放弃信仰,离开教会。不要让他离开耶稣。邀请他和你一起,回到主的里面,过得胜的生活。

Think of someone you know who has given up on God. Don’t let that person walk away from Jesus. How can you invite them to join you in making Jesus the center, not an addition, to life?
