我们的 神仍没有丢弃我们(拉9:9)。

亲爱的弟兄啊,有火炼的试验临到你们,不要以为奇怪,似乎是遭遇非常的事(彼前4:12)。你们所忍受的,是 神管教你们,待你们如同待儿子。焉有儿子不被父亲管教的呢?管教原是众子所共受的,你们若不受管教,就是私子,不是儿子了(来12:7,8)。耶和华你们的 神试验你们,要知道你们是尽心尽性爱耶和华你们的 神不是(申13:3)。

耶和华既喜悦选你们作他的子民,就必因他的大名不撇弃你们(撤上12:22)。妇人焉能忘记他吃奶的婴孩,不怜恤他所生的儿子?既或有忘记的,我却不忘记你(赛49:15)。以雅各的 神为帮助、仰望耶和华他 神的,这人便为有福(诗146:5)。 神的选民昼夜呼吁他,他纵然为他们忍了多时,岂不终久给他们伸冤吗?我告诉你们:要快快地给他们伸冤了(路18:7,8)。

Our God hath not forsaken us. EZRA 9:9.

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you. — If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. The LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

The LORD will not forsake his people for his great name’s sake: because it hath pleased the LORD to make you his people. — Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. — Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God. Shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily.

我们若靠基督只在今生有指望,就算比众人更可怜(林前15:19)。他们却羡慕一个更美的家乡,就是在天上的。所以 神被称为他们的 神,并不以为耻,因为他已经给他们预备了一座城(来11:16)。可以得着不能朽坏、不能玷污、不能衰残、为你们存留在天上的基业(彼前1:4)。因为万有全是你们的。或世界,或生,或死,或现今的事,或将来的事,全是你们的(林前3:21,22)。 神为爱他的人所预备的,是眼睛未曾看见,耳朵未曾听见,人心也未曾想到的。只有 神藉着圣灵向我们显明了(林前2:9,10)。你们要小心,不要失去你们所作的工,乃要得着满足的赏赐(约贰8)。 我们就当放下各样的重担,脱去容易缠累我们的罪,存心忍耐,奔那摆在我们前头的路程(来12:1)。

He that overcometh shall inherit all things. REV. 21:7.

If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. — Now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for he hath prepared for them a city. — An inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you. All things are your’s; … the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are your’s. — Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. — Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.
