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】葛培理布道团:舍己跟从(2018-6-6)

“于是叫众人和门徒来,对他们说:“若有人要跟从我,就当舍己,背起他的十字架来跟从我。 因为,凡要救自己生命 的,必丧掉生命;凡为我和福音丧掉生命的,必救了生命。”马可福音 8:34-35

Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.  Mark 8:34-35

一个警察曾经问我,基督徒得胜的生活的秘密是什么。我告诉他,没有什么神奇的配方。但是如果一定要用一个词的话,就是“舍己降服”。你可能问我,培理,如何舍己?就像罪人悔改,舍己归主一样。必须认罪,把一生的全部、人格、遗愿,都交托给基督,要坚信主的接纳。我们仅仅在圣台前做个决志是远远不够的。那一刻短暂的辉煌。不能照耀我们一生。我们要不断回顾、确认我们的悔改和降服。我们要灵里定期反省自己。

今天,主耶稣基督要我们基督徒不断洁净自己、奉献自己、圣化自己、完全降服。你能否做到这些,将决定你属灵生命的成败。也将决定你是需要帮助还是有能力帮助别人。改变你的习惯,更新你的祷告、读经、见证、教会团契,这是基督徒的再决志!如果你是一个基督徒,并正在面临、经历失败、波折,远离神的旨意,不确定基督给你的喜乐和奋兴,我希望你现在就降服,摆上一切,完全交托给基督。阿们。

A police sergeant once asked me the secret of victorious Christian living. I told him there is no magic formula. But if any one word could describe it, it would be “surrender.”You may ask, “Billy, how can I surrender my life?” It is surrendered in the same way that salvation comes to the sinner. There needs to be confession of sin and a complete yielding of every area of life, personality, and will to Jesus Christ-plus faith that Christ will accept that commitment. It is not enough for us to have been confirmed or to have made a decision for Christ at an altar. We cannot walk successfully in the glow of that experience for the rest of our lives. Being human, we need to return and renew those vows and covenants with the Lord. We need to take inventory and have spiritual checkups.

Today Christ is calling Christians to cleansing-to dedication- to consecration- to full surrender. Your response will make the difference between success and failure in your spiritual life. It will make the difference between your needing help and being able to help others.It will revolutionize your habits, your prayer life, your Bible reading, your giving, your testimony, and your church relationship. This is the Christian’s hour of decision!If you are a Christian and have been suffering defeat, or have been outside the will of God, or do not know the power and thrill and joy that Christ can bring, I beg of you to surrender every area of your life. Give yourself wholly to Christ.
