祭坛 [Altar]

书卷:诗篇(旧约)
作者:匿名

诗篇43篇4节:“我就走到上帝的祭坛,到我最喜乐的上帝那里。上帝啊,我的上帝!我要弹琴称赞袮。”

今日默想:圣经中一切真理的光线,都集中在上帝的祭坛。这就是上帝与人相会的地方,这就是救恩的中心,就是上帝救人的大目的,并是虔诚人心的大欲望。上帝一切的圣洁,真理,慈爱,诚实,都集中于此,并从此向罪人欢迎。使他可以在此与他所爱的上帝相见。诗人并不是那么欢喜祭坛,乃是借着祭坛与所爱的上帝相会。当欢乐无法用人类的语言表达时,音乐的作用远远超过语言的限制。

Book: Psalm (Old Testament)
Author: Anonymous

Psalm 43:4 :“Then I will go to the altar of God, to God my exceeding joy; and on the harp I will praise You, O God, my God.”

Today’s Meditation: All the truths in Bible are gathered at the altar of God. Altar is the place to meet God as well as the centre of salvation. Salvation is the greatest goal of God and is the desire of all people. All the holiness, truths, mercies, and honesties of God gather there. Sinners are welcomed to approach to the altar of God. We can meet the God we love at the altar. The author did not really like the altar, but the altar is a place for him to meet with God. When we cannot express our joy with words, musics can be used to solve the limitations of language.
