每日金句

光照在黑暗里,黑暗却不接受光。

—约 1:5

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

—John 1:5

约翰福音使用“光”这个画面来帮助我们理解耶稣是谁。

耶稣基督,神的道,最初与神一起创造了这个世界。祂也来到了世上拯救这个世界,因为世界被罪和死的咒诅破坏了。当初亚当夏娃在伊甸园悖逆神,将咒诅带给了神所有的受造物。(参创 3)这个曾经被神称为“好”的世界从那时起就饱受冲突、离析、疾病和悲伤的折磨。罪使我们与造我们的神疏远了。更糟糕的是,无论我们怎样努力,都无法使之复原。我们的罪不断地在我们和造物主之间形成障碍。

也许你阅读这些灵修文章是因为你在生活中正感受到罪的影响。或许发生了一些事让你感到失落或困惑。又或许你感觉自己好像在黑暗中摸索,想要寻找一束光来引导你前面的路。

圣经应许你,无论你正在面对怎样的黑暗,这黑暗都不能胜过基督的光。耶稣就像岩壁之上的灯塔,为我们提供盼望,并指引通往神的清晰的道路。

任何罪或神的仇敌都不能熄灭基督的亮光。祂永远都是得胜的,如果我们信靠祂,祂就会邀请我们来分享祂的胜利。

The book of John uses the image of light to help explain who Jesus is.

Jesus Christ, the Word of God, created the world with God in the beginning. He also came into the world to save it, because it was broken by the curse of sin and death. When Adam and Eve disobeyed God in Eden, they brought this curse on all of God's creation. (Genesis 3)The world that God once called “good” has been afflicted with conflict, isolation, sickness, and grief ever since. And sin has estranged us from the God who created us. Even worse, no matter how hard we try, we cannot make things right. Our sin continually forms a barrier between us and our Creator.

Maybe you are reading these devotions because you are feeling sin's effects in your life. Perhaps something has happened that has left you feeling lost or confused. Maybe you feel as if you are groping in the dark, looking for a light to guide your way.

The Bible promises that the darkness you face—whatever it might be—will never overcome the light of Christ. Like a lighthouse on a rocky shore, Jesus offers us hope and a clear path to God.

There is no sin or enemy of God that is big enough to snuff out the light of Christ. He will always be victorious, and if we place our faith in him, he invites us to share in his victory.

祷告 · Prayer

主啊,请帮助我有一双在周围的黑暗中能发现基督亮光的眼睛。在祂得胜的应许中,使我充满盼望。阿们。
