如星闪烁 Shining like stars

 

凡所行的﹐都不要发怨言﹐起争论﹐使你们无可指摘﹐诚实无伪﹐在这弯曲悖谬的世代﹐作神无瑕疵的儿女。你们显在这世代中﹐好像明光照耀﹐将生命的道表明出来﹐叫我在基督的日子﹐好夸我没有空跑﹐也没有徒劳。(腓力比书2:14-16)

“Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life – in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.”  Phil 2:14-16

 

神不是为了我们而存在,是我们为了祂而存在。但愿我们活着不是为自己,是为了祂的荣耀而活。

God does not exist for us, we exist for Him.  May we live our lives for His glory, and not our own.

 

岂不知你们的身子就是圣灵的殿么。这圣灵是从神而来﹐住在你们里头的。并且你们不是自己的人。因为你们是重价买来的。所以要在你们的身子上荣耀神。(哥林多前书6:19-20)

“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?  For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

 

我们要宣扬祂的旨意和话语,纵使那和我们自己的抵触。让我们培养一颗顺服的心,使我们可以如星闪烁反映祂的荣耀。

We do this by holding forth His will and His Word, even if it clashes with our own.  May we cultivate a heart for obedience so that we may shine like stars to His glory.

 

因此﹐你们是大有喜乐﹐但如今﹐在百般的试炼中暂时忧愁。叫你们的信心既被试验﹐就比那被火试验﹐仍然能坏的金子﹐更显宝贵。可以在耶稣基督显现的时候﹐得着称赞﹐荣耀﹐尊贵你们虽然没有见过他﹐却是爱他。如今虽不得看见﹐却因信他就有说不出来﹐满有荣光的大喜乐。并且得着你们信心的果效﹐就是灵魂的救恩。(彼得前书1:6-9)

“In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ;  and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory,  obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your souls.”      1 Peter 1:6-9
