每日金句

我心里涌出美辞。我论到我为王做的事……

—参诗 45:1

My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king…

—Psalms 45:1

任何婚礼都是一个巅峰时刻,不单对那双结婚的新人来说是这样,就是对他们的家人、朋友、和社区的人也是如此。婚礼也可能会花费浩大的,北美洲婚礼的平均费用大约是三万美元。

诗篇45篇是一首关于婚礼的诗歌,但它不是关于任何一个婚礼的,这乃是那位治理神子民的君王的婚礼。这位君王既威严和强大,而且无不得胜和满有恩慈,祂重视“真理、谦卑、公义”。祂着手把世界纳入正轨。这位君王值得我们关注,因为祂的目标是行正直的事、依从神的吩咐生活和抗拒罪恶,而祂正在准备举行婚礼呢。

你或许记得,近年来举行过几次皇室婚礼,这些婚礼往往令人注目和颇为壮观,很多人都被皇室婚礼豪华和美丽的气氛所感染。任何婚礼都象征对新的未来的盼望,然而,对皇室的婚礼来说,整个国家的希望因此得以重燃,而举国也洋溢着一片欢乐。

希伯来书一章八至九节引用了诗篇45篇中一些字句,来形容神的儿子耶稣的王权。君王基督将要回来迎娶祂的新妇,这是历史最终极的盼望。就是地上最荣华的皇室婚礼,都只不过是让我们先尝这个时刻的机会而已。

Any wedding is a pinnacle moment—not only for the couple involved but also for their family,friends,and community. Weddings can be expensive,too. The average wedding in North America costs about $30,000.

Psalms 45 is a song about a wedding and not just any wedding, but the wedding of the king who rules over God's people. This king is majestic and strong, victorious and gracious. He cares about "truth, humility and justice." He sets the world to rights. This king is note-worthy because he aims to do what is right, living God's way and opposing wickedness.What's more,he is getting married.

As you may recall, there have been a few royal weddings in recent years. They get a lot of attention and sometimes put on quite a show. Many people get caught up in the pageantry and beauty of a royal wedding. Any marriage is a sign of hope for a new future.But with a royal wedding, the hope of a whole nation is renewed,and people are stirred up with joy.

In Hebrews 1:8-9, some words from Psalms 45 are used to describe the kingship of the Son of God,Jesus.The most glorious earthly royal wedding is just a foretaste of history's final hope,when Christ,the King,comes for his bride.

祷告 · Prayer

基督我们的王,求祢叫我们心里涌出诗歌,以祢的公义和慈爱为题来颂赞祢。我们为世界各地历世历代的教会——祢的新妇所得到的荣耀感谢祢。阿们。
