完全顺服


完全顺服

Fully Surrender

 

惟独恶人,好像翻腾的海,不得平静;其中的水常涌出污秽和淤泥来。我的神说“恶人必不得平安!”

——赛:57:20-21

 

Those who still reject me are like the restless sea. . . . There is no peace, says my God, for them! —Isaiah 57:20,21 (TLB)

 

信仰也有双腿……几年前我听说一个男人在绳索上滚动着独轮手推车来来回回地横跨尼亚加拉河。成千上万的人都激动地朝他大喊。他将200英镑的泥土袋绑在手推车上度过河,然后又度回来。他问拥挤的人群:“你们有多少人相信我可以把一个人送到对岸?”大家都惊讶地议论起来。前排的一个人特别激动地宣称相信。男人却指着这个人说:“下一个是你”。那个人并没有取下泥土袋,他不是真正的相信,他只是认为自己相信,但是他不愿意迈上手推车。就像跟随基督一样,很多人说自己相信基督,愿意跟随基督,但是他们从来没有迈入“手推车”。实际上,他们没有决定百分之百地顺服基督。

 

Faith has legs . . . I heard about a man some years ago who was rolling a wheelbarrow back and forth on a tightrope across Niagara River. Thousands of people were shouting him on. He put a 200-pound sack of dirt in the wheelbarrow and rolled it over, and then he rolled it back. He turned to the crowd and asked, “How many of you believe that I can roll a man across?” Everybody shouted! One man in the front row was very excited in his professed belief. The man pointed to this excited professor and said, “You’re next!” You couldn’t see that man for dust! He didn’t actually believe it. He thought he believed it—but he was not willing to get in the wheelbarrow. Just so with Christ. Many people say they believe on Him, they say they follow Him. But they never have stepped into the wheelbarrow. They actually never have committed and surrendered themselves wholly, 100 percent to Christ.
每日祷告

亲爱的主耶稣基督,只有当我完全顺服在你面前的时候,我才重新意识到那些远离我的平安与喜乐。

 

Prayer for the day Loving Lord Jesus, it was only when I surrendered everything to You that I knew the ultimate joy and peace that had always escaped me.
