《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1Th 1:3)
Meditation one: Why can a Christian have a wonderful life? It is because we have faith, love, and hope in Christ. Faith, hope, and love are the foundation of Christianity. Our manner of life should make known to others how God’s power has transformed us from the agonizing past to today’s abundance, and give the glory to God.
Meditation two: You have faith, yet do you have the work produced by faith? Faith apart from work is useless. You have love, but are you willing to labor hard because you love God, love people, and love the church? True love has the price of the cross behind it. You have the hope of eternal life, but can you endure suffering because of your belief? Run with patience, the Spirit of God will work by Himself and bring good results.
Prayer: Thank God for giving us the faith, love, and hope. Please help me to be willing to pay the price of obedience on the path of faith, to be willing to pay the price of labor prompted by love, and to be willing to pay the price of endurance inspired by hope. No matter how difficult the situation may be, let me still live out a life of faith, hope, and love. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
