《今日靈修默想》:「所以,我們應當離開基督道理的開端,竭力進到完全的地步,不必再立根基,就如那懊悔死行、信靠神。」(來6:1)

默想一:基督徒蒙恩得救後,靈命會自動成長嗎?不會的!你必須主動地繼續追求成長。但你要先離開過去那些犯罪、體貼肉體、虛偽,沒有離開這些絆腳石,是不可能成長的。靈命的上進、前進、長進是我們的責任,我們需要意志上的決心與執行,以便達到靈命成熟的地步。

默想二:小孩與大人最大的區別在哪裡?小孩子心智幼稚,理解力低,只能聽得懂簡單的話﹔嬰兒連善惡都不能分辨,惡事都不能夠懂,自然不算是壞事。不過長大成人了,就必須心智與年齡相稱。保羅勸勉我們說﹕“弟兄們,在心志上不要作小孩子﹔然而在惡事上要作嬰孩,在心志上總要作大人。”(林前14:20) 靈命絕不能停留在聖經的知識上,而是在思想上、態度上、作法上、服事上、人際關係上看出長進來,在凡事上活出成熟的特性。

禱告:父神,讚美袮!因袮是滿有恩典憐憫的神。感謝袮的話語,讓我的信仰在袮的真道上有根有基地成長。求袮幫助我,我願在每天的生活上尋求袮、親近袮、愛慕袮。奉主耶穌的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death” (Heb 6:1)

Meditation one: Once a Christians has been saved, will spiritual life grow automatically? It will not! You must actively and continuously pursue to grow. First, you have to drive away from the wrong deeds, the mind of the flesh, and hypocrisy. Without leaving these stumbling blocks, it is impossible to grow. It is our responsibility to further, advance, and grow spiritually. We need to have the will of determination and execution in order to reach the status of spiritual maturity.

Meditation two: What is the biggest difference between a child and an adult? Children are naive and lack of comprehension. They can only understand simple words. An infant can’t distinguish between good and evil. Without the comprehension of evil, naturally, the infant should not be deemed as wrong. But when you grow up, you have to be mentally commensurate with your age. Paul exhorted us and said, “Brothers and sisters, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults.” (1Co 14:20) Spiritual life must not halt around the knowledge of Bible; instead, in terms of thinking, attitude, deeds, ministries, and interpersonal relationship, one needs to show the growth and lives out mature characteristics in all things.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I praise You because You are the God full of grace and mercy. Thank You for Your words, so that my faith has roots and foundation in Your truth. Help me, I am willing to seek You, come near to You, and love You every day. I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
