对今日诗句的想法

在唱那首古旧有力的赞美诗《宝架清影》时,我们会唱到“宝架看为荣耀”。对于耶稣而言这是十分真实的描述。人类的领袖都在通过各样的途径寻求荣耀,耶稣得着荣耀的方式是通过十字架,因为他不求人的赞美,单单要顺服并荣耀天父。当犹大从最后的晚餐离开,那要将耶稣带到各各他经受可怕受难的一幕即将开启。然而,十字架并不是他的降卑之路,却是他荣耀神的方式。

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

In the powerful old hymn "Beneath the Cross of Jesus," we sing "my glory all the cross." That was genuinely true of Jesus. While other human leaders try to find glory in all sorts of ways, Jesus' path to glory was the cross, because he was not after acclaim, but wanted to obey and glorify the Father! When Judas left the Last Supper, the final stages of the process was set in motion that would bring Jesus to the horrors of Calvary. But rather than seeing the cross as his degradation, it was his way of glorifying God.

我的祷告

亲爱的主,我如此寻求别人的认可,求你赦免我。赦免我如此自我中心。赦免我专注于自己而非你的荣耀。赦免我因忙于为自己吸引更多注意力而践踏别人的内心。耶稣在生命最后一周的榜样让我震惊并看清真相,求你帮助我明白真正的伟大在乎不计代价地完全地服侍你。奉耶稣的名求,阿门!

My Prayer...

Dear Lord, please forgive me for seeking the approval and recognition of others. Forgive me for being so self-centered. Forgive me for thinking of my glory and not yours. Forgive me when I have trampled on the hearts of others because I was so busy gaining attention for myself. Jesus' example in the last week of his life shocks me back to reality and helps me realize that true greatness is found in serving you, completely, no matter the cost. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
