对今日诗句的想法

爱——这个字可以表达各种含义。许多基督徒都试着以词典对爱加以定义,熟不知爱的关键词是行为。若基督徒不明白真正的爱,那么“爱”与世间的定义毫无区别,能代表任何含义!然而当我们阅读约翰一书时,便看到神的爱为我们所做的,神以行为展现了他的爱。神要求我们同样以行为爱我们的弟兄姐妹。爱决不止于言辞;爱必须真诚地以行为展现!

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Love! The word can mean anything. Many in the Christian community have tried to define it by a dictionary or lexicon, not realizing the key word for love, agape, is defined by action. Before Christians got a hold of agape, it meant the same thing our word today does: just about anything! But if you read 1 John, you see what love is by what God does. God demonstrates his love. He asks us to do the same for our brothers and sisters. Love must be more than talk; it must be genuinely demonstrated in action!

我的祷告

慈爱的天父啊,你是如此恩慈地爱我们。我必须承认,我内心深处愿意以你的爱去爱他人,但我的意愿却常常因忙碌或胆怯而消散。天父啊,愿你的圣灵激励我以行为爱人,而非想法或言辞。奉你最伟大的爱——主耶稣之名祈求,阿们!

My Prayer...

Precious Father, you have so graciously shared your love with me. I must confess, in my heart I intend to love others as you do, but my intentions often get washed away with "busy-ness" or timidity. Father, through your Spirit, prompt me to show my love to others in actions rather than just thought and talk. Through Jesus, your greatest demonstration of love I pray. Amen.
