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).

信靠和行善 Trust, Do, and Then…

读经

“你当倚靠耶和华而行善, 住在地上,以他的信实为粮;”  诗篇 37:3 

Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.  P S A L M 3 7 : 3

默想

倚靠,行善,这是很重要的两件大事。首先,要倚靠上帝。这也是上帝对人最重要的信息,他说了一遍又一遍。倚靠上帝,而不是你自己。让上帝为你更新,给你力量,使你安稳。其次,要积极行善,这是上帝给人的第二条信息。倚靠上帝,必然会让你关爱他人,愿意行善。行善,不仅是上帝的命令,也是一种回应。因为人倚靠上帝,他们会因为上帝的爱而发生奇妙的改变,并愿意活出上帝的形象。

当人倚靠上帝并积极行善的时候,上帝必大大祝福他们。民族和国家会变得安全、强大。记住这两件事,让上帝祝福你。

Trust in the Lord. This was the Lord’s number one message to his people. He repeated it over and over again. Trust in the Lord, lean not on your own understanding, rely upon your God. Let him restore you, empower you, and sustain you. Do good. This was the Lord’s second message to his people. Trusting in the Lord led to an overflow of care for others. Doing good in life is acommand, but it is actually more of a response too. When people trust God, they are so dramatically changed by his love that they learn to live in God’s patterns.

Then, as people trust the Lord and do good, the Lord gives blessing. Communities and nations that learn to do these things become safe and productively fruitful places. Trust in the Lord, do good, and then watch God bless all that is around you.

祷告

耶稣,让我记得并做这两件事。倚靠你,不管什么情况;行善,以他人为先。阿们。

Jesus, help me to do these two things today. Help me trust you with whatever is ahead, with whatever is pressing on my mind and heart. And help me to put others first in all that I do. Amen.

行动

以礼貌和善良对待他人,相信上帝来祝福你和他们。

Practice serving people all day long through acts of politeness and kindness. Trust that the Lord will bless you and others as you serve.
