Daily Scripture - May 12

Ephesians 4:25-32
(Memorization Scripture 30-32)
25 Therefore, putting away lying, “Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,” for we are members of one another. 26 “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, 27 nor give place to the devil. 28 Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need. 29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. 32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.

Put off lying, stealing, and unwholesome talk, only speak truthfully and edifyingly; forgive and be kind to one another

Lying, lasting anger, stealing (not only materially), and corrupt words often happened in our home, yet we let these sins dwell with us. It is also hard to believe there could be a lot of malice (bitterness, wrath, clamor, evil speaking) existing in our home, yet we are powerless to put them away. Pray that God's salvation through Jesus Christ comes to my family and me today, let us only speak truthfully and edifyingly, forgive and be kind to one another, no longer grieve the Holy Spirit of God. We, those who believe in Jesus, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit (1:13) who dwells in us, and through Him, God will make us holy and blameless in Christ.

25 所以你們要棄絕謊言,各人與鄰舍說實話,因為我們是互相為肢體。 26 生氣卻不要犯罪,不可含怒到日落, 27 也不可給魔鬼留地步。 28 從前偷竊的,不要再偷,總要勞力,親手做正經事,就可有餘,分給那缺少的人。
29 汙穢的言語一句不可出口,只要隨事說造就人的好話,叫聽見的人得益處。 30 不要叫神的聖靈擔憂,你們原是受了他的印記,等候得贖的日子來到。 31 一切苦毒、惱恨、憤怒、嚷鬧、毀謗,並一切的惡毒,都當從你們中間除掉; 32 並要以恩慈相待,存憐憫的心,彼此饒恕,正如神在基督裡饒恕了你們一樣。

在家庭中棄絕謊言, 偷竊,和污穢的言語,說誠實和造就的話,彼此饒恕,以恩慈相待
謊言,長久的怒氣,偷竊(不一定只是物質的),污穢的言語,都是家裡面常發生的,而我們似乎就讓這些罪留在我們的家中。也很難相信在最愛 、 最在乎的家人中間,可能存在著許多惡毒( 苦毒、惱恨、憤怒、嚷鬧、毀謗 ),而我們沒有能力除掉。求 神的救恩今天臨到 臨到我和我的家, 讓我們只說誠實和造就人的話,除掉惡毒,彼此饒恕,以恩慈相待, 不要叫 神的聖靈擔憂,因為我們信的人已經受了所應許的聖靈為印記 (弗1:13);神且要藉著這內住的聖靈,使我們在基督裡成為聖潔 ,無有瑕疵。
