11.03.20 最終投票數 The Final Vote Counts

約 翰 16:33 我 將 這 些 事 告 訴 你 們 , 是 要 叫 你 們 在 我 裡 面 有 平 安 。 在 世 上 , 你 們 有 苦 難 ; 但 你 們 可 以 放 心 , 我 已 經 勝 了 世 界 。

John 16:33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

在我們投票並等待選舉結果時,讓我們被提醒耶穌”已經勝了世界”, 這比誰將贏得選舉更為重要。 “在世上,我們將有苦難”(約翰福音16:33),因為當我們站在耶穌的那邊時,世界將會恨我們。 但是耶穌事先知道這一點,所以他向我們保證,他已經贏得了“最後的選舉”! 因此,我們可以擁有平安:在他裡面。 投票是我們的責任,也是祈禱的行動,更是向世界的宣告, 所以不要放棄這項寶貴的特權。 同時,選舉只是一時的,但屬靈的爭戰仍將繼續。 願上帝利用這次選舉喚醒祂的教會,使其重新獻身於祂的使命。 無論誰成為下一任美國總統(我祈禱那會是敬畏耶和華的人),教會都會有許多工作要趕上。 因此,讓我們”放心“,以更大的熱情服事上帝繼續前進,而且從今天開始!

As we vote and await the results of the election, let us be reminded that Jesus has overcome the world. This is more important than who will win the election. “In the world [we] will have tribulation” (John 16:33) because when we stand on the side of Jesus, the world will hate us. But Jesus knew this in advance, so he assured us that He has already won “the final election”! Therefore, we can have peace: in Him. Voting is our responsibility and is also an act of prayer, and a proclamation to the world, so do not forsake this precious privilege. At the same time, the election is but one event while the spiritual battle will be ongoing. May God use this election to wake up His Church to be rededicated to His mission. No matter who becomes the next President, the Church will have much work to do. So let us take heart and move on with even greater passion for God!
