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:一心称谢(2017-12-5)

一心称谢 With All of My Heart

读经

“我要一心称谢耶和华; 我要传扬你一切奇妙的作为。”  诗篇 9:1

I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done.  P S A L M 9 : 1

默想

你全部的心脏是怎么样的?圣经上说要你一心一意称谢上帝,是什么意思?你会不会只是用四分之三的心脏去称谢?你是不是只有心室在赞美,心房却在休息?动脉呢?静脉呢?你把手捂着心口,感受一下自己的心跳。血液在心脏中是按单方向流动,由左、右心房流向左、右心室;由左、右心室泵入主动脉和肺动脉,这样形成了心脏内血液的定向循环,通过各级动脉分布至全身。心脏中的血液必须流畅通过,不然就会有心脏病。

当你藉着信赖主耶稣获得新生命时,你要赞美称谢。你的赞美要“泵”出来。当你看到耶稣对你的恩典和作为时,你有喜乐和满足。你的喜乐不能压制,而是要分享。你要一心一意称谢,也要传扬他的作为。

What does “all” of your heart look like? When the Bible encourages you to praise the Lord with “all” of your heart, what does it have in mind…er, I Mean heart—what does it mean? Can you praise God with just three out of four chambers? What if you put all of your ventricles into it but let your atria rest? How about the arteries? The inferior vena cava and pulmonic valve too? Put your hand over your heart for a moment. Do you feel it pumping? Your heart, your whole heart, right now, is pumping deoxygenated blood from the body in the right atria and the right ventricle, and your heart is pumping oxygenated blood from the lungs through the left atria and the left ventricle. The blood that comes into the heart must be pumped out, otherwise the heart would seize up in an attack.

When you receive life from the Lord, you must pump out praise. When someone helps you see what Jesus has done for you, you can’t contain that joy and wonder, and you must push it on. The truth of God that fills your heart must come out or you will seize up.

祷告

耶稣,让我为你心跳。阿们。

Lord Jesus, keep my heart beating for you! Amen.

行动

记得那些帮助你的人,记得那些传福音给你的人,感谢上帝,给他们写信。

Take time to write a heartfelt thank-you note to someone who has made a difference in your life by telling you about Jesus. Include Psalm 9:1 in the note to show your gratefulness for the way God used them to impact you.
