《今日靈修默想》:「神召我們,本不是要我們沾染污穢,乃是要我們成為聖潔。」(帖前4:7)

默想一:成為一個神喜悅的人的重要關鍵是什麼?就是成為聖潔!因為那是神把我們從世界中分別為聖的目的,也是祂呼召的心意。神的話很清楚地說到『那召你們的既是聖潔,你們在一切所行的事上也要聖潔』(彼前1:15)。聖潔像主是基督徒一生要追求的,是基督徒在世上分別為聖最有力的見證。

默想二:我們如何在淫亂的世代裡過分別為聖的生活?消極方面是不沾染污穢,遠避淫行。積極方面要活出神的聖潔及榮美的性情。分別為聖的生活不能靠自己,需要聖靈時刻地充滿和引導。聖靈的工作不僅是給我們能力,也給我們盼望,使我們過得勝的聖潔生活。

禱告:阿爸父神,感謝袮在基督裡所成就的。我的身體是袮用重價買來的,是聖靈的殿(林前6:19-20)。我願把身體獻上,當作活祭,是聖潔的,是神袮所喜悅的(羅12:1)。求袮幫助我,無論在道德的生活、夫妻的關係、男女的關係、工作的道德、做人處事上,讓我時刻在祢的光中過聖潔的生活。奉耶穌寶貴的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life.” (1Th 4:7)

Meditation one: What is the essential key to be a person pleasing to God? That is to be holy! This is God’s purpose to sanctify us out of the world, and it is also His intention of the calling. The word of God clearly says, “But just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do” (1Pe 1:15). Be holy like the Lord is what Christians must pursue for their entire lives, and it is the most powerful testimony of Christians’ sanctification in the world.

Meditation two:  How do we live a sanctified life in the era of lewdness? From negative perspective, it is not to be contaminated with filth, far away from adultery. On the positive side, we must live out God’s holy and glorious character. A sanctified life cannot depend on oneself. It needs to be filled with the Holy Spirit and be guided at all times. The work of the Holy Spirit is not only to give us power, but also to give us hope, enabling us to live a victorious and holy life.

Prayer: Dear Abba Father, Thank you for what you have accomplished in Christ. My body was bought by You at a price, and is the temple of the Holy Spirit (1Co 6:19-20). I would like to offer my body as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to You (Rom 12:1). Please help me, whether in moral life, relationship between husband and wife, relationship between men and women, work ethics, and deeds, let me live a holy life in Your light at all times. I pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen!
