对今日诗句的想法

人们在重新推出陈旧的已经退出公众视线的产品时,往往会用“全新升级”来作为营销的噱头。把老产品稍作修饰,然后重新推出市场。保罗希望歌罗西的信徒明白一件事,即耶稣并不需要“全新升级”。相反,他们需要像当初刚信主时一样,以耶稣为主并跟随他。我们也当这样行。我们的生活要建立在以基督耶稣为主的根基上,向下扎根,向上结果,因着神赐下爱子耶稣的无比恩典,满心献上我们的感恩。

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

"New and improved!" That's the key marketing tag to re-introduce an older product that has fallen out of the public perception. Make a few changes, then re-market the old product. Paul wants the Colossians to know that Jesus does not need to be "new and improved." Instead, they need to follow him as Lord just as they did when they first became Christians. That is our need, too. Our lives need to be rooted and nurtured in Christ Jesus as Lord, full of thankfulness for God's incredible gift of grace in his Son.

我的祷告

慈爱的天父,全能的神,感谢你在耶稣基督里所赐给我的恩典。有时候我追求新鲜刺激,当漫游癖发作,我就想寻求新事物,求你赦免我。求你让我感到跟随耶稣的每一天都是新的。求你让我更懂得感恩,让耶稣在我生命中掌权,并以此来帮助我坦然面对生活中的艰难,使我每一天都带着喜乐、刚强、盼望和力量去迎接激动人心的新机遇。奉耶稣的名求,阿门!

My Prayer...

Loving Father and Almighty God, thank you for the gift of your grace given to me in Jesus Christ. Forgive me when I get fascinated by what is simply new or when wanderlust hits and I want something novel. Please make my walk with Jesus fresh each day. Strengthen my appreciation that his lordship in my life will help me face the difficult circumstances along the way and greet the exciting new opportunities each day with joy, strength, hope, and power. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
