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)

栽种公义 SOWING AND REAPING

“你们要为自己栽种公义, 就能收割慈爱。 现今正是寻求耶和华的时候;你们要开垦荒地,等他临到,使公义如雨降在你们身上。”  何西阿书 10:12

Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of steadfast love; break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the Lord, that he may come and rain salvation upon you.  Hosea 10:12 RSV

神藉着何西阿先知说,“他们所种的是风,所收的是暴风;“(何8:7)种瓜得瓜、种豆得豆,我们的世界已经因为种了败坏而完全败坏。我们努力寻求解决办法,却无可奈何。稗子的成长超过了麦子,人类充满了罪恶。但是,人类还互相攻击和指责。共和党谴责民主党,民主党就谴责共和党;东方指责西方,西方就指责东方;资本家批评劳工,劳工就批评资本家。一个印第安纳州的老农民总结一句话:这个世界真是乱七八糟。

然而,作为福音的使者,我保持乐观。世界虽然有很多问题,但是,我们的神高过这个世界。如果我们敢于相信神,悔改认罪,向神寻求智慧、引导、力量,这个世界的所有问题都不是问题。世界和平需要时间,但是我们的时间不多了。我们要做的,要尽快去做。你最近在为神做什么?

The Word of God says, “They have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind” (Hosea 8:7).The immutable law of “sowing and reaping” has held sway. Our world is now the unhappy residence of a harvest of moral depravity, and we seek in vain for a cure. The tares of indulgence have overgrown the wheat of moral restraint. All humanity is guilty. But each faction of society seeks to place the blame upon others.The Republicans blame the Democrats; the Democrats blame the Republicans. The Communists accuse the Americans’ the Americans accuse the Communists. The East denounces the West; the West denounces the East. Capital finds fault with labor; labor finds fault with capital. An old farmer in Indiana summed it up when he said, “The whole world situation is just a mess!”

But, as a minister of the Gospel, I am an optimist. The world problems are big, but God is bigger! If we will dare to take God into account, confess our sin, and rely unreservedly upon Him for wisdom, guidance, and strength, our world problems can yet be solved. There is yet time for bringing peace, but that time is brief. What we do, we must do quickly.What have you done recently for God?
