【双语灵修】葛培理布道团:忍受苦难(2018-10-11)

“也要凭爱心行事,正如基督爱我们,为我们舍了自己,当作馨香的供物和祭物,献与神。正如基督爱教会,为教会舍己。”以弗所书 5:2, 25

And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling savor…Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it. Ephesians 5:2, 25

我们宇宙的中心是神救恩之爱的舍身。我们越是在罪恶世界中感到难苦,我们越是能体会他的大爱。有人说,一个人若是受苦却没有成功,那么一定有另外一个人因为他而成功;同样,如果一个人成功了却没有受苦,那么一定有另外一个人为他受了苦。

在喜马拉雅山脚下有一个城市叫科希马(Kohima)。这是印度那加兰邦(Nagaland)州的一个城市,我们在那里举办基督教传入一百周年的纪念活动。那里也是二战时期日本人进入印度被抵挡的地方。在一个墓地里安葬着很多无名英雄,来自印度、英国、美国和其他共同反抗日本侵略者的国家。在墓地的入口有一块纪念碑,上面刻着:他们放弃了明天,所以你才有了今天。在非洲宣教十六年之后,利文斯顿         回到苏格兰,在格拉斯哥大学演讲。他曾经二十七次高烧,毁坏了很多系统。一只胳膊也因为被狮子咬了不能动了。他对大学生说,你们知道为什么历尽千辛万苦,我还活在人间?那是因为基督的应许:我要与你们同在,直到世界的末了。今天,我们同样承载救主的应许。他和一同承受苦难,并一直在彼岸等待我们,一起享有永生的荣耀的光芒。

At the heart of our universe is a god who suffers in redemptive love. We experience more of His love when we suffer within an evil world. Someone has said that if one suffers without succeeding, he can be sure that the success will come in someone else’s life. If he succeeds without suffering, he can be equally sure that someone else has already suffered for him.

High up in the foothills of the Himalayas is a beautiful city called Kohima. It is in Nagaland, one of the states of India. We were there to help them celebrate a hundred years of Christianity. It was there that the Japanese were stopped in their thrust toward India during World War II. Buried in a cemetery are the bodies of hundreds of Indians, British, Americans, and those of other nationalities who made up the Allied force that halted the Japanese advance. At the entrance to the cemetery there is an engraved memorial which says, “They gave their tomorrow that you might have today.”After sixteen difficult years as a missionary on the continent of Africa, David Livingstone returned to his native Scotland to address the students at Glasgow University. His body was emaciated by the ravages of some twenty-seven fevers which had coursed through his veins during the years of his service. One arm hung useless at his side, the result of being mangled by a lion. The core of his message to those young people was, “Shall I tell you what sustained me amidst the toil, the hardship, and loneliness of my exile? It was Christ’s promise, ‘Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end.”We, like David Livingstone, may claim the same promise from our Savior and Lord. He does go with us through our sufferings, and He awaits us as we emerge on the other side of the tunnel of testing-into the light of His glorious presence to live with Him forever!
