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).

中文灵修:勿要随从私欲

到了一个地方,名叫骷髅地,就在那里把耶稣钉在十字架上……——路 23:33

对于人性来说,具有讽刺性的一面是,人总是会摒弃最善的,而选择接受最恶的。为何人群会要求释放巴拉巴,而将耶稣钉十字架?答案写明在圣经中,人心比万物都诡诈,坏到极处。时至今日,耶稣依然神圣,也如同在第一个受难之日那样,他依然活着。然而在今天却有无数的人不接受他。他的善依然责备着我们的恶;他的圣洁依然显示出我们的不洁;他的无罪依然揭示了我们的罪性;除非我们允许他来战胜伴随着我们的罪恶,我们身上的罪依然想要打败他。这便是无数世代的冲突所在。

今日祷告:
主耶稣,当我再次冥想你在各各他所受的痛苦,我的心便会再一次在你给全人类的大爱面前降服!
主耶稣基督的圣名,阿们!

Daily Devotion:Dont Trust Your Heart

And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him . . . —Luke 23:33

One of the ironies of human nature is that it often has a way of rejecting the best and accepting the worst. Why did the crowd ask for the release of Barabbas and the crucifixion of Jesus? The answer is in the biblical statement, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked.” Jesus is just as divine today and just as much alive as He was on that first Good Friday. Yet millions today don’t accept Him. His goodness is still a rebuke to our badness; His purity still shows up our impurities; His sinlessness still reveals our sinfulness; and unless we allow Him to destroy the evil within us, the evil within us still wants to destroy Him. This is the conflict of the ages.

Prayer for the day:
Lord Jesus, when I reflect upon the agony of Your death at Calvary, my heart is once again humbled at the magnitude of Your love for all mankind.
In Jesus' name, Amen!
