《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “He Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” (2Pe 3:9)
Meditation one: What does God mean that He does not want anyone to perish? It shows how compassion, patience, kindness, perseverance, and love God has for us. His intention for sinners is that everyone can come to repentance. On the other hand, before the Lord’s second come, He gives Christians the opportunity to fulfill their part to lead people to repent and return to the Lord so on that day will not face the Lord empty-handed.
Meditation two: Can Christians wait until their retirement or at their leisure to serve the Lord? It is not a matter of waiting, instead that tomorrow is not in your hands. At this very moment, it is a glorious privilege to be able to serve the Lord. God wants us to cherish the value of “each day” and the opportunity of “now”. Evangelism is the great commission given by the Lord. It is a responsibility for every Christian without excuse. It is also the purpose for who are called to be Christians. He wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. (1Ti 2:4)
Prayer: Thank God heavenly Father because You are the God the same yesterday, today, until forever and ever. Please teach me to number my days that I may gain a heart of wisdom. Please give me a spirit to cherishing the souls and yearn for Your heart, care about what You care about, love what You love, do what You do, and pass on what You pass on. I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
