  • 凡仰望祂的,便有光榮,他們的臉,必不蒙羞。 (詩34:5)
    2月27日

        我們需要提防過度注意主觀這一方面的屬靈經歷,以免逐漸地轉向自己,而落在自己裡面。
        我現在以電燈作為此事的比喻,你坐在一個黑暗的房間裡,想要開燈以便閱讀書報。書桌上擺著一盞檯燈,你該怎樣辦呢?是否一直注視著那盞燈,盼望它立即放亮?或者,手裡拿著揩布,不斷地擦刷那個燈泡?
        當然不是!你乃是站起來,走到電燈開關的地方,啟動開關,讓電流通到那盞檯燈上,房間就立即大放光明了!你應該把注意力集中於能力的源頭,當你與能力的源頭有了接觸,這邊就必有光。
       永還要盯住神在基督裡為你所已經成就的事實,然後讓祂去負責進行在你身上的工作。

  • They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces shall never be confounded. (Psalm 34:5)
    February 27th

        We need to guard against being over-anxious about the subjective side of spiritual experience, and so becoming turned in on ourselves.  
       
    May I illustrate this from the electric light? You are in a room and it is growing dark. You would like to have the light on in order to read. There is a reading-lamp on the table beside you. What do you do? Do you watch it intently to see if the light will come on? Do you take a cloth and polish the bulb?
       
    No, you get up and cross over to the other side of the room where the switch is on the wall, and you turn the current on. You turn your attention to the source of power, and when you have taken the necessary action there, the light comes on here.
       
    Dwell always upon what God has done in Christ, and let Him take care of what He will do in you.
