《今日靈修默想》:「你要為真道打那美好的仗,持定永生。你為此被召,也在許多見證人面前已經作了美好的見證。」(提前6:12)

默想一:基督徒要如何避免被錢財和世界引誘?必須要有敬虔加上知足的心,並且主動地追求公義、敬虔、信心、愛心、忍耐、溫柔(提前6:11)。我們信了主,就要把信心放在對的焦點上,就是追求靈命成熟,而不是放在無定的錢財之上。我們的靈命若原地不動,不追求更新,很自然就會被世人同化。我們的生活態度和價值觀,正反應出我們是否持定永生,或只注目於短暫的世界。

默想二:基督徒為什麼要在真道上打美好的仗?因為那是耶穌拯救我們的目的。祂用真道栽培我們,在真理、生活、靈性各方面造就訓練我們,使我們在彎曲悖謬的世代裡,依靠主過得勝的生活。在順服的挑戰上得勝,在信仰的堅持上得勝,在金錢名利的誘惑上得勝。我們當堅守呼召,至死忠心,才不辜負主的恩典。

禱告:感謝神,因祢藉著耶穌基督賜下永生的禮物。求袮教導我如何善用餘下光陰,積極地為持定永生而戰。即使付上代價,我願為祢忠心到底,以致於見祢面的時候毫無羞愧、無可指責,得以進入神的榮耀裡。奉耶穌基督的名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  :  “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” (1Ti 6:12)

Meditation one: How can Christians avoid being lured by wealth and worldly affairs? A must is to have godliness with contentment, proactively pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness (1Ti 6:11). When we believe in the Lord, we must put our faith on the right focus, that is, the pursuit of spiritual maturity, instead the unsecured wealth. If our spiritual lives remain the same without pursuing renewal, we will unintentionally be assimilated by the world. The attitudes and value systems ​​toward our lives reflect whether a person takes hold of the eternal life or only pays attention to earthly life and worldly affairs.

Meditation two: Why do Christians need to fight a good fight for the truth? This is because that is the purpose of Jesus to save us. He cultivates us with the Word, trains us in truth, life, and spirituality, and enables us to live a victorious life on the basis of the Lord in this crooked and perverse generation. Triumph in the challenge of obedience, victory in the persistence of faith, and overcome the temptation of wealth, fame and fortune. We must stand firm for His calling and be faithful to death so that we will not fail the grace of the Lord.

Prayer: Thank God for giving the gift of the eternal life through Jesus Christ. Please teach me how to make the best use of the rest of my life to fight for taking hold of the eternal life. Even if I pay a price, I want to be faithful to You unto the end. Therefore, when I meet You face to face, I will be blameless, not ashamed, and be able to enter into God’s glory. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
