《今日靈修默想》:「惟有你們是被揀選的族類,是有君尊的祭司,是聖潔的國度,是屬神的子民,要叫你們宣揚那召你們出黑暗、入奇妙光明者的美德。」(彼前2:9)

默想一:你以作基督的門徒為榮嗎?神看重我們,藉著耶穌基督的寶血把我們贖回來(彼前1:19),為的是要我們與世人分別。如今我們在神的眼中是「被揀選的族類、是有君尊的祭司、是聖潔的國度、是屬神的子民」。感謝神,因為我們在基督裡有新的地位與價值,在世上成為基督的使者,是神在地上的代表,祂以我們為榮。

默想二:既然我們在世上有尊榮的地位,那我們的責任是什麼?是要我們完成神崇高的旨意,使神的美德藉我們宣揚出來,使神的名大得榮耀。我們的價值並非來自自己的成就,乃是來自神兒女的名分;不是因為我們所作的,而是因為神所作的一切。

禱告:父神,感謝祢!原本我在黑暗的國度裡,是祢的恩典與憐憫,讓我進入袮光明的國度。因袮的呼召及榮耀的託付,我願活出祢的性情、祢的光明、祢的聖潔。求祢的聖靈時刻充滿我並引導我,今天無論我在哪裡,願我的所行所是都彰顯袮的榮耀。奉耶穌寶貴的名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” (1Pe 2:9)

Meditation one: Do you feel that it is an honor for you to be a disciple of Christ? God values ​​us and redeems us through the precious blood of Jesus Christ (1Pe 1:19) in order to sanctify us out of this world. Now, in the eyes of God, we are “a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession.” Thank God, because we have the new status and value in Christ, become the messengers of Christ in this world, and representatives of God on earth. He is proud of us.

Meditation two: Since we have the royal status in this world, then what responsibility should we take? It is for us to accomplish God’s exalted will, so that the praises of God can be declared by us, so the name of God can be glorified. Our value is not from our own accomplishments, but from the status as God’s children; not because of what we do, but because of what God has done.

Prayer: God, thank You! I used to be in the world of darkness, it is Your grace and mercy brought me into Your glorious kingdom of light. Because of Your calling and glorious entrustment, I am willing to live out Your divine nature, Your glory, and Your holiness. Please always fill me with the Holy Spirit and guide me. No matter where I am, I wish my deeds can reveal Your glory. I pray in the precious name of Jesus. Amen!
