  • 父啊,願你榮耀你的名。 (約 12:28)
    8月2日

       我們都受到基督教導的恩典,但這其中最珍貴、稀有的,即是當祂顯現自己時所引起親密、熟悉的感覺。
       在約翰福音第12章26節末段記載,這是人子得榮耀的時刻到了。『我說什麼才好呢? 父啊,救我脫離這時候?』他脫離了看守,就如同從前,現今祂顯露了真實的身份,但仍然謹言慎行。
       當祂對祂的父說話的時候,就如同對人講道一樣,十字架仍然控制著祂。『我原是為這時候來的』我不能說『救我』。能說的是『父啊,願你榮耀你的名!』
      
    當心裡憂愁時,小心謹慎地說,如同主曾經歷的景況一樣。   

     

  • Father, glorify thy name. (John 12:28)
    August 2nd

       We are given a grace deal of Christ’s teaching, but here is one of those rare, intimate occasions when He reveals Himself.
    A passage of doctrine ends with verse 26, and now the Son of man Himself shines out.    “What shall I say? Father, save me from this hour?” He is off His guard, as it were, exposing what He really is, but He does not speak carelessly.
    When speaking to His Father, no less than when preaching to men, the Cross rules Him.    “For this cause came I unto this hour.” I cannot say “Save me.” This is what I can say:”Father, glorify thy name!”
       When the heart is troubled, speak carefully. The Lord did.
