神愛世人,甚至將他的獨生子賜給他們,叫一切信他的,
不至滅亡,反得永生。(約3:16).

中文靈修:清新

要保守自己清潔。——提摩太前書5:22

法利賽人並不快樂。他們經常皺著眉頭,緊繃著神經,垂頭喪氣,心中充滿怨恨、苦毒、驕傲。這是為什麼?很簡單,因為他們忘記了上帝關於清心的教導。他們認為隻要遵守律法就足夠了,但這並不是上帝的意思。遵守律法並不能使心靈潔淨,也不能讓人心中愉快。上帝不隻是看人外在的行為,而是深入考察內心,查驗人心的動機、思想及目的。

今日禱告:
父啊,請賜予我清潔的心,讓我完全謙卑地來服侍和讚美你。
奉耶穌基督的名求,阿們!

Daily Devotion:A Pure Heart

Keep thyself pure.—1 Timothy 5:22

The Pharisees were not happy men. They had furrowed brows, nervous tension, frustration. They were full of resentments, bitterness, prejudices, and hatreds. Why? Simply because they had lost sight of God’s conception of the pure in heart. They thought that as long as they kept the letter of the law that was enough. But this was not God’s plan. This did not produce purity of heart. This did not bring about happiness of soul. Jesus taught that God looks deeper than the outside actions of an individual. He searches and ponders the heart. God judges not so much the outside as He does the inside. He looks to the motives, thoughts, and intents of your heart.

Prayer for the day:
Father, give me purity of heart that in true humility I may serve and praise You.
In Jesus' name,Amen!
