《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Then the Lord said to him (Moses), ‘Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.’” (Act: 7:33)
Meditation one: Are you longing for being with God? Hence live in holiness at the “Holy ground”. All places before God are holy, so those who are before God must sanctify themselves. Whether it is on a mountain or in a valley, in a house or out in field, inside or outside of a church, it is a “holy ground”. Christians should understand: “But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do” (1Pe 1:15).
Meditation two: Would you like to be used by God? You must sanctify yourself by taking off the filthiest sandals from your whole body. Our God is a devouring fire, and all the corruptions will be cleansed through the fire. Every child of God can be used by God, yet the requirement is “Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work” (2Ti 2:21).
Prayer: God heavenly Father, thank You and praise You! Your holiness is like a devouring fire. Please shine on me, and burn up any filth that is in me, so that I can draw near to You in the Holy Land and serve You. May Your holiness be formed in my heart, and let me live out Your glory. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
Intercession: Continue to pray for the epidemic all around the world. Ask God to have mercy on all the people of this world so, through this epidemic, they may recognize the limitation and insignificance of lives. Let people also realize the helplessness in the chaos, and turn to the ruler of all things in the universe in time, willing to humbly walk along with God. Also ask God to give leaders of all the nations a heart to fear God and put down prejudices to jointly develop effective policies to curb the epidemic.
