<续>

In the very same way our heavenly Father has rescued us. Our condition was more desperate than we could ever know. We couldn't make it on our own. We were groping frantically in complete darkness when He came and personally guided us home. He redeemed us from deadly peril.

以同样的方式,我们的天父解救了我们。我们的境况远比我们所想象的那般艰险。我们不能自己解决。我们如同在一片漆黑中乱摸索,这是上帝过来亲自指引我们回家的路。他救我们脱险。

 

Perhaps the Apostle John had such a sense of gratitude when he declared, "We love Him because He first loved us" (1 John 4:19).

或许使徒约翰说因上帝先爱我们,我们爱他”(约翰福音4:19)时深含谢意。


It would not be unusual for you to be harboring distorted images of what your heavenly Father is like. I've had many false images myself -- at different times a "higher power" or a stern judge to be feared. But once I saw His unconditional love for me, a love unaffected by who I was and all I had done, my heart was able to say, "Father, I love you." Amazingly, God not only loves us -- He actually created us so we can love Him in return.

偶尔你受惠于天父真实面目的假象之下。我自己也有很多假象---有时害怕,视他为至高无上的权势”或“严厉的法官”。但是,当我看到他给予我无私的爱,不管我是谁,不管我做过什么,他给予我无私的爱。我的内心在说,“上帝,我爱你”。令人奇怪的是,上帝不仅爱我们,---而且他在塑造我们。因此,我们要以爱回报他。


How deeply should we love God? Jesus, who knew the Father intimately, said, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength" (Mark 12:30). All our faculties come into play. "All" leaves nothing out. Loving the Father to that degree continues to stretch me, for it means giving all that I am to the One who gave His all for me.

My heart swells -- and I believe so does God's -- when I spontaneously lavish my love upon Him, expressing my affection and gratitude to Him.

我们该如何深爱我们的上帝?耶稣,他跟上帝亲密,说,你要全心全意,尽力而为爱上帝,视上帝为你的神”。(马可福音 章节 12:30)用尽我们所有的能力,毫不保留。爱上帝到不顾一切的程度,也就是上帝给予我们他的一切,我们要把我们所有给予他。我热血澎拜---我相信上帝也一样---我自愿把我的所有爱献给上帝,以表达我对他的感恩和敬爱。
