《静夜亮光》一月五日

一月五日

经文: 上帝看光。(创世记一:4)

请注意,主对光特别注意。“上帝看光”──祂仔细地看,以欢愉的心情注视,祂看光是好的,主若赐给你光,祂会以特殊的兴趣观察那光。不仅因为那是祂手所造的,所以祂会珍爱;更因为光像祂自己,因为祂就是光。信徒若加道上帝的眼目正温柔地观察祂亲手开始的恩典工作,必要欢欣。对于这件放在瓦器中的宝贝,祂永不转睛,而这瓦器就是我们。有时候,我们看不到光,但上帝永远见到那光。我能知道自己是上帝子民中的一员,心中很得安慰。其实,我知道与否并不重要,只要上帝知道,我就平安稳妥了。“主认识谁是祂的人”(提后二:19),这就是基础。你可能为自己的罪悲叹呻吟,为你的黑暗而哀伤,然而主看到你心中的光。祂已将光置于你心中,你灵里的一切云雾阴霾都不能遮蔽你的光,使祂恩典的眼睛不能看见。你可能沮丧,甚至绝望下沉。但是只要你的心尚存一丝对基督的渴望,并且寻求安息在祂已作成的工作中,上帝就看到了光。祂不仅见到光,也保守那光存于你心中。对于那些急切要保守自己、维护自己,却感到无能为力的人,这想法无疑是十分珍贵的。藉上帝恩典所保守的光,有一日要发展成为如日中天之辉煌和完全的荣耀。在人心里的光就是永恒日子的晨曦。

Evening, January 5

Scripture: “And God saw the light.”(Genesis 1:4)

This morning we noticed the goodness of the light, and the Lord's dividing it from the darkness, we now note the special eye which the Lord had for the light. “God saw the light”-he looked at it with complacency, gazed upon it with pleasure, saw that it “was good.” If the Lord has given you light, dear reader, he looks on that light with peculiar interest; for not only is it dear to him as his own handiwork, but because it is like himself, for “He is light.” Pleasant it is to the believer to know that God's eye is thus tenderly observant of that work of grace which he has begun. He never loses sight of the treasure which he has placed in our earthen vessels. Sometimes we cannot see the light, but God always sees the light, and that is much better than our seeing it. Better for the judge to see my innocence than for me to think I see it. It is very comfortable for me to know that I am one of God's people-but whether I know it or not, if the Lord knows it, I am still safe. This is the foundation, “The Lord knoweth them that are his.” You may be sighing and groaning because of inbred sin, and mourning over your darkness, yet the Lord sees “light” in your heart, for he has put it there, and all the cloudiness and gloom of your soul cannot conceal your light from his gracious eye. You may have sunk low in despondency, and even despair; but if your soul has any longing towards Christ, and if you are seeking to rest in his finished work, God sees the “light.” He not only sees it, but he also preserves it in you. “I, the Lord, do keep it.” This is a precious thought to those who, after anxious watching and guarding of themselves, feel their own powerlessness to do so. The light thus preserved by his grace, he will one day develop into the splendour of noonday, and the fulness of glory. The light within is the dawn of the eternal day.
