55 在爱的渊中受审判

因为时候到了,审判要从神的家起首。(彼前四17

作主的工人必须记住,救恩是从神来的,不是人自己可以得到;因此,这是一道测不透的深渊。救恩是神一个极高超伟大的意念,而不是一个经历。经历只不过是一道门,让救恩进入我们的生命里。千万别传扬经历,乃要传扬经历背后神伟大的意念。我们传道,并不是宣布人怎样可以得救,脱离地狱,变成有道德、圣洁的人;我们乃是传达神的好消息。

在耶稣基督的教训中总夹着审判,这是神爱的表征。若有人觉得接近神是件难事,我们不必表示同情,因为这不是神的错。我们也不必设法解释困难的缘故,只要把神真理讲出来,圣灵就会指出毛病所在。传道最大的考验,就是要把各人带进审判里去。神的灵会个别对付每一个人。

耶稣若给我们一条命令,而不给我们力量去实行的话,他就是个说谎者。若我们让自己的无力实行成为顺服的拦阻,那就是在对神说,他有些事考虑不周详。任何的自倚自恃,都必须被神粉碎。完全的软弱与信赖,往往是圣灵彰显他能力的时候。

祈祷◆噢,主啊,愿你的赐福今天临到我们,那么多人正需要你。求你拯救的大能在我们当中运行,掌管和振奋我们。


May 5 Judgment On The Abyss Of Love

For the time is come that judgment must begin at
the house of God.” 1 Peter 4:17

The Christian worker must never forget that salvation is God’s thought,
not man’s; therefore it is an unfathomable abyss. Salvation is the great
thought of God, not an experience. Experience is only a gateway by which
salvation comes into our conscious life. Never preach the experience; preach
the great thought of God behind. When we preach we are not proclaiming how man
can be saved from hell and be made moral and pure; we are conveying good news
about God.

In the teachings of Jesus Christ the element of judgment is always
brought out, it is the sign of God’s love. Never sympathize with a soul who
finds it difficult to get to God, God is not to blame. It is not for us to find
out the reason why it is difficult, but so to present the truth of God that the
Spirit of God will show what is wrong. The great sterling test in preaching is
that it brings everyone to judgment. The Spirit of God locates each one to
himself.

If Jesus ever gave us a command He could not enable us to fulfil, He
would be a liar; and if we make our inability a barrier to obedience, it means
we are telling God there is something He has not taken into account. Every
element of self-reliance must be slain by the power of God. Complete weakness
and dependence will always be the occasion for the Spirit of God to manifest
His power.
