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:寻找目标

弟兄们……将身体献上,当做活祭,是圣洁的,是神所喜悦的,你们如此侍奉,乃是理所当然的。——罗 12:1

有一本书叫做《年岁的渴望》,讲的是一位美国姑娘在巴黎嫁给了一位激进的革命者。在美国读大学时,她失去了信心,失去了信仰,以及父母所告诫她的一切。当被问及为何要嫁给这位革命者时,她回答,他是我所遇到第一个能为自己的信仰去死的人。尽管我并不完全相信他的作为,我是为他能为生命找到一个目标而吸引。我发现今天的年轻人在寻找目标,他们并不是在寻找一件易事。

前不久,有一位莫斯科的大学生告诉我的一个同事说,你们基督徒说你们要赢得这个世界,但我们在五十年所做的事将会超过你们在过去两千年的作为。你知道这是为什么吗?因为你们没有坚定的信念。然而我们有,我们会赢,你会看到的 

今日祷告:
耶稣,我的救主,你给了我一切,然而我所向你献上的却如此令我惭愧。愿我永远将一切献上来爱你!
主耶稣基督的圣名,阿们!

Daily Devotion:Looking for a Cause

Brethren . . . present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto               God, which is your reasonable service.Romans 12:1

In a book called “The Age of Longing” we read that an American girl married a radical revolutionary in Paris. She had lost her faith at an American University—lost all the religious faith she had, and all the things her parents had told her. She was asked why she married him. She said, “He’s the first person I have ever known who believes something strong enough to die for it. Although I don’t believe exactly as he does, I was attracted to this man who had found a cause.” I find that young people today are looking for a cause, and they are not looking for something easy.

Some time ago a university student in Moscow told one of my colleagues, “You Christians say that you are going to win the world, but we’ve done more in fifty years than you’ve done in two thousand years. And do you know why? It is because you are not committed. We are. We will win, you’ll see.”

Prayer for the day:
I look at my dedication to You, Jesus, my Lord and Savior, and am ashamed—You gave everything for me. May I always live totally committed in love to You.
In Jesus' name, Amen!
