对今日诗句的想法

知道主耶稣是神所设立的弥赛亚是一方面,而跟随主耶稣作为我们的主却是截然不同的另一方面。要让我们的心思、意念与生命合一,这一直都是一项挑战。主耶稣的门徒曾承认耶稣就是基督,主耶稣知道自己必须教导门徒真正的通向荣耀之路。每一卷福音书都提醒着我们:这条道路必先经历十字架的苦难,而后才能得到荣耀的冠冕。早期教会将其编入歌中,提醒自己也必将经历相同的道路(参见腓立比书2:5-11)。我们将是天国的百姓,但同时也能确定,我们将在这条道路上遭遇坎坷,甚至要攀登陡峭的险坡,因为撒但企图诱使我们偏离正道并摧毁我们。然而我们的救主已经走过了这条道路,主是我们最佳的提示——这条道路将带领我们得享他的荣耀!

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Knowing Jesus is God's Messiah is one thing. Following Jesus as our Lord is quite another. Getting our minds, hearts, and lives to all line up is always a challenge. Once Jesus' disciples confessed him as the Christ, he knew he had to teach them the real road to glory. Each of the Gospels reminds us that this road led to the cross of agony before it led to the crown of glory. The early church captured it in a song that reminded them that they, too, must walk that same road (see Philippians 2:5-11). We are a heaven-bound people, but we can be sure that we will encounter potholes and bumps along the road and even steep hills to climb as Satan tries to derail and defeat us. Our Savior, however, has already walked this road, and he is our great reminder that the path leads us to share in his glory, too.

我的祷告

亲爱的天父啊,有几位我认识的基督徒,他们在坚定跟随主耶稣的道路上正经历着挣扎。亲爱的主啊,我请求你,请你赐给他们力量与勇气去经历忍耐,请你使用我去鼓励他们、帮助他们走出生命中这段晦暗的时光。在这里我想特别提出他们的名字,恳求你祝福他们。奉主耶稣名求,阿们!

My Prayer...

Dear Father, I know several believers who are struggling to follow Jesus faithfully. Please, dear LORD, I ask that you give them the strength and the courage to endure, and that you use me to encourage them and to help them through this dark time in their lives. I want to specifically mention several people by name, and ask you to bless them. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
