每日灵粮(2010-08-12):在主里是光明的

 

Ephesians 5:3-14 

August - 12



 

LIGHT IN THE LORD

You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light. Ephesians 5:8



Most people probably wouldn’t think that working for a bank could be dangerous to your health, but sometime it was. Gradually we spent more time each day sitting at a desk rather than standing or walking. When we were not overeating at fine restaurants with bank customers, then were grabbing quick meals of “empty-calorie” foods. In just a few years at the bank, someone had put on dozens of unhealthy pounds.

 

At annual physical exam, doctor bluntly ordered us to leave this unhealthy pattern of life behind. He told us what foods we would be eating (and in what portions) and also what we would not be eating. He ordered us to take time for healthy exercise. We are more grateful now than we were 25 years ago for this good doctor’s bluntness.

 

In our Scripture for today, Paul bluntly prescribes his orders for healthy spiritual life. There are unhealthy patterns that must be left behind. “Deeds of darkness” have no nutritional value for the Christian life. Those who fill their mouths with obscenity, foolish talk, or coarse language are digesting empty spiritual calories that only bring God’s anger. And sexual immorality, impurity, and greed have no place in a Christian’s exercise routine.

 

Instead, Christians will live with the light of Christ leading to goodness, righteousness, and truth.

PRAYER

Our Father, let the light of your Son shine on us. Following the example of Jesus our brother, may we live as your children—children of light. In Jesus’ name, Amen.



以弗所书   5:3-14

August - 12



 

在主里是光明的

  「从前你们是暗昧的,但如今在主里面是光明的,行事为人就当像光明的子女。」弗5:8



    大多数人都不会认为,在银行工作有可能危害健康,但有时这却是真实的写照。久而久之,每天坐在桌前的时间,要比站立或走路的时间多。当不用与银行客户在高级餐厅暴饮暴食时,便会以「没有卡路里」的快餐式食物糊口了事。于是,在银行工作不消数年,有人已经长了数十磅赘肉。

 

    在一次每年体检中,医生直接了当地命令,要戒掉这种不健康的生活模式。告诉应进食那些食物(和食物的分量),不应进食那些食物,又吩咐要花时间做有益身心的运动。对这位好医生的当头棒喝,现在的我们会比二十五年前更表感谢。

 

    在我们今天所读的经文中,保罗直接了当地为健康的属灵生命开处方,他指出有一些不健康的生活模式,是必须戒除的。「暗昧的行为」对基督徒的生命是没有营养价值的,那些满口淫词妄语的人,犹如在进食没有属灵营养的食物,只会触怒神。而荒淫、不洁和贪婪的行为,更不应出现在基督徒的日常生活中。

 

    相反,基督徒要活在基督的光中,这光能引领他们进入良善、公义和真理。

祷告

  我们的父,求祢让儿子的光光照我们,愿我们效法我们的弟兄耶稣的榜样,行事为人像祢的儿女 —— 光明的子女。笑云奉耶稣名求,阿们。
