《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” (1Co 2:2)
Meditation one: In this evil and trendy-leaning era, where do you set your focus of life? Love the world for the rest of your life? Or love Jesus Christ? What the world is boasting about often makes people proud and away from the truth, but Jesus Christ makes people humble and accepts the truth. The science of this world gives people a sophisticated material pleasure but also brings the emptiness in their souls, but Jesus Christ gives people the peace inside; the world prosperousness is soon gone, but Jesus Christ leads people bountifully into eternity.
Meditation two: How much do you know about Jesus Christ? How is your relationship with Him? There are many people today who only like the Christmas of Jesus’ birth, but do not know the Good Friday that Jesus died on the cross to save people. For Paul, Christ alone, without the cross, is an incomplete gospel. How much the cross has deciphered in us, as much Christ can be seen out of us; how much the cross has worked in us, as much the Christ can be revealed through us. Without Christ, there is no life; without the cross, there is no way.
Prayer: God heavenly Father, thank You. Because of the crucifixion through Jesus Christ, we have a way to be saved. Please let Your Holy Spirit guide me, I would like to know You more deeply. It is not just want to hear well-organized, well-quoted, and well-composed words. For I have determined not to know anything except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. I pray in the precious name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
