（Jesus said）“Abide in me, and I in you”. John 15:4
个人得救不是简单的跟神之间的信仰关系，而是实实在在的与神同在。基督不是一个宗教，而是一生、永生的事业。大卫感恩于神的同在，他说:“住在至高者隐密处的， 必住在全能者的荫下。”（诗91:1）如果你反复阅读这篇诗，你会感受到，在神里面我们有永远的居所，在他里面有安慰、安全、一切的爱。现代心理学家说，人最根本的需要就是平安。在这首诗里面，我们被确信有极大的平安。“祸患必不临到你， 灾害也不挨近你的帐棚。 因他要为你吩咐他的使者， 在你行的一切道路上保护你。”（诗篇91:10-11）
Personal salvation is not merely an occasional rendezvous with Deity; it is an actual dwelling with God. Christianity is not just an avocation; it is a lifelong, eternity-long vocation. David, thrilled with the knowledge that his life was in God, said in Psalm 91:1, “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”If you read and reread this beautiful psalm, you will discover that in Him we have a permanent abode and residence, and that all of the comfort, security, and affection which the human heart craves is found in Him.Modern psychiatrists say that one of the basic needs of man is security. In this psalm we are assured that in God we have the greatest of security: “There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways” (Psalm 91:10-11).
A few years ago in China, two Christian missionaries were undergoing bitter persecution. One night as they were getting ready to retire they heard the sound of voices outside the compound. They lifted the blinds to find their home surrounded with belligerent men who had gathered there to terminate the couple’s ministry.The missionary husband and wife, realizing that God was their only refuge, dropped on their knees and prayed for those who would harm them, and reminded God that He had promised to be with them even unto the end. When they arose from their knees, they noticed that the crowd was dispersing, and the excited murmuring of the departing mob indicated that something unusual had happened. The missionaries thanked God for answered prayer and retired. The next morning as the sun cast its rays upon the compound, a native Christian came to the door and begged an audience with them.“Do you know why the mob did not kill you last night?” he asked. “Our God answered prayer,” replied the missionary. “Yes,” said the native man. “When you were on your knees last night, four creatures like angels dressed in robes of white appeared, and one stood at each corner of your house. The mob trembled and fled, and we Christians who stood helpless in the crowd knew that once more God had intervened.”
