装满罪的“杯”


默想:


“神使那无罪的,替我们成为罪,好叫我们在他里面成为 神的义。”(林后521


静思:


“客西马尼”一词按字面解的意思是“榨油机”。在客西马尼园这地方,有一台巨大的榨油机,好从橄榄里榨出橄榄油(灵意)。耶稣在客西马尼园三次祷告说:“我父啊,倘若可行,求你叫这杯离开我;”耶稣的意思是:我不想喝这个“满溢着罪”的杯,不想体验——罪进入我的身心的感觉。耶稣在黑暗的客西马园喝的正是这个苦杯——他独自在那里喝。耶稣喝的“苦杯”里装的是罪。神把人类所有的罪——过去的和今后的——“提取”出来,放在杯子里——强奸罪,同姓恋罪,虐待儿童罪,毒气致人死的罪,谋杀罪,亵渎罪,巫术罪,猥亵罪……然后对耶稣说:喝了它。

行动:

耶稣为了你的罪而死。你是否已经接受他赐予你装满“丰盛恩典”的杯,并使他进入你的生命了呢?花点时间祷告,感谢神为你的罪——过去的罪,当下的罪,今后的罪——喝了“苦杯”。

The Cup of Pollution Sin’s Oil Press


BIBLE MEDITATION:


“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21)

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:


The word Gethsemane literally means “oil press.” It was in this garden that they had a giant press to squeeze the olive oil from the olives. It was here Jesus prayed three times, “Lord, if it be possible let this cup pass from Me.” I don’t want to drink this cup—to experience this cup fully, to take it into my very being.It was the cup of agony that Jesus drank in dark Gethsemane and He drank it there alone. The pollution of sin was in that cup. Take all the sin of the past and all the sin of the future, distill it, put it in this cup. Put rape in there. Put sodomy in there. Put child abuse in there. Put Hitler’s gas ovens in there. Put murder in there. Put blasphemy in there. Put witchcraft in there. Put filth in there and say, Jesus drink it.

ACTION POINT:


Jesus died for your sin. Have you accepted His bountiful cup of grace, experienced it fully, taken it into your very being? Spend some time in prayer thanking Him for drinking the poisonous cup of sin—past, present, and future—pressed from the shortcomings of your life.
