三种快乐


三种快乐

Three Kinds of Pleasure

门徒满心喜乐,又被圣灵充满。

——徒13:52

The disciples were filled with joy, and with the Holy Ghost.

—Acts 13:52

 

圣经论到了三种快乐。一种是情欲之乐,即肉体的情欲,圣经上说这是罪恶和错误的。一种是正当的快乐,它没有错,但我们不能将全部心神贯注于这些活动上以致让其取代了神的位置。然后还有第三种快乐,永恒之乐。你拥有这种快乐吗?它不依赖于环境或感觉,它是从神的灵而来的不断加深的快乐。

 

The Bible speaks of three kinds of pleasure. There is lustful pleasure, the lust of the flesh, and Scripture says it is sinful and wrong. There is legitimate pleasure, which is not wrong, but we are not to become so preoccupied with its activities that it takes the place of God. Then there is a third kind of pleasure, lasting pleasure. Do you have that kind? It does not depend on circumstances or feelings. It is the pleasure that runs deep and comes from the Spirit of God.

 

今日祷告

全能的神,愿我的快乐永远来自你圣灵喜乐的充满!
