每日灵修 3/14/2019 “你会三次不认我”

每日灵修 3/14/2019

54 他们把耶稣押到大祭司的府第。彼得远远地跟在后面。55 他们在庭院当中生起了火,围坐取暖,彼得也坐在他们中间。 56 有个婢女看见彼得坐在火堆边,打量他一番后,说:“这人是与耶稣一伙的!” 57 彼得却否认说:“你这女子,我不认识祂。” 58 过了一会儿,又有个人看见了彼得,就说:“你也是跟他们一伙的!” 彼得说:“你这人,我不是!” 59 大约一小时之后,又有人指着彼得肯定地说:“这人确实是和耶稣一伙的,因为他也是加利利人。” 60 彼得说:“你这人,我不知道你在说什么!”话才出口,鸡就叫了。61 这时,主转过头来望着彼得,彼得想起主对他说的话:“明早鸡叫之前,你会三次不认我。” 62 他就到外面,痛哭起来。路加福音 22:54-62

54 Then they seized him and led him away, bringing him into the high priest’s house. But Peter was following at a distance. 55 When they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and sat down together, Peter sat among them. 56 Then a servant-girl, seeing him in the firelight, stared at him and said, “This man also was with him.” 57 But he denied it, saying, “Woman, I do not know him.” 58 A little later someone else, on seeing him, said, “You also are one of them.” But Peter said, “Man, I am not!” 59 Then about an hour later still another kept insisting, “Surely this man also was with him; for he is a Galilean.” 60 But Peter said, “Man, I do not know what you are talking about!” At that moment, while he was still speaking, the cock crowed. 61 The Lord turned and looked at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said to him, “Before the cock crows today, you will deny me three times.” 62 And he went out and wept bitterly. Luke 22:54-62 (NRSV)

默想: 彼得为什么三次否认了耶稣? 要知道, 这是最后的晚餐上彼得和耶稣的一段对话:

彼得说:“即使所有的人都离弃你,我也永远不会离弃你!”

耶稣说:“我实在告诉你,今夜鸡叫以前,你会三次不认我。”

彼得说:“就算要我跟你一起死,我也不会不认你!”其余的门徒也都这样说。

(马太福音 26:33-35)

属灵的操练:你在什么时候违背了你的誓言? 你的理想?

明知不该做的事, 你偏偏做了? 明知该做的事, 你却没有做?

祷告: 主耶稣, 我们都像彼得一样,

不知道我们是谁。

我们往往把自己估计得太高, 想得太好。

我们以为自己是信实,忠诚,勇敢, 可靠的人。

但是,面临危险的时候,

我们才发现一个真实的我。

彼得掩面痛哭, 因为他不能接受自己的真实面目

彼得流泪, 因为他为自己的失败感到羞耻和悔恨。

但是, 即使我们对你不信实,

你仍然以信实对待我们。

你在十字架上流了你的宝血,

是为了赦免我们的罪过, 遮盖我们的羞耻。

你在十字架上舍弃了自己的性命,

是为了让我们得到新生命。

阿门。
