上帝的光 [The Light of God]

书卷:哥林多后书(新约)
作者:保罗

哥林多后书4章6节:“那吩咐光从黑暗里照出来的上帝,已经照在我们心里,叫我们得知上帝荣耀的光显在耶稣基督的面上。”

今日默想:上帝的光照,能产生更高超的杰作,所以我们要羡慕上帝的光照,追求生命的真光。上帝是光,而基督是像,我们人犹如照像机:上帝吩咐光从黑暗中照出来,照在基督的面上,眼映在我们的心里。若非上帝的光照,无人能看见荣耀的基督。祂光照的积极意义,乃是把基督的荣耀,映入我们心里,使我们得见祂的荣形。荣耀的福音不是别的,乃是基督自己。祂要从我们信徒的灵里照耀出来,就先照在我们的里面,使我们也成了发光体,并照着腓立比书2章15节所说显在这黑暗的世代中,好像明光照耀。上帝的光不在别处,只在耶稣基基的面上。故此我们要更多亲近主,活在主的面前,瞻仰祂的荣美,好让祂面上的荣光更多照在我们的里面。

Book: 2 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

2 Corinthians 4:6 :“For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”

Today’s Meditation: The light of God can create superb masterstroke. Therefore, we need to admire His light and pursue after the true light of life. God is the light, Jesus is the image, and we are like the camera: God commanded light to shine out of darkness and shine onto Jesus Christ so that we can see. No one can see the glorious Christ if it is not the light of God that shines. His purpose of light is to settle the glory of Christ in our mind so that we can see His glory. The glorious gospel is Christ Himself. Christ is to shine out of our mind. He shone onto us first so that we can shine in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation just as Philippians 2:15 has told. The light of God is only on Christ. Thus, we need to be intimate with the Lord and respect all of Him so that more of His glory can shine onto us.
