《今日靈修默想》:「弟兄們,在心志上不要作小孩子;然而在惡事上要作嬰孩,在心志上總要作大人。」(林前14:20)

默想一:你曾認真思考自己的屬靈生命嗎?有長進像「大人」嗎?還是仍停留像「小孩」?屬靈嬰孩的特徵是幼稚、無知、不成熟。他們通常在教會製造混亂、紛爭,在教會只顧自己,在教會我行我素。基督愛教會,為教會捨己,因此基督徒在基督捨己的地方,不應該強調自己的重要。

默想二:基督徒信了主就會在靈命上自然地成熟嗎?不可能!信主後你有責任在聖靈的引導下竭力追求真道,直等到基督成形在你心。聖經說:“凡只能吃奶的,都不熟練仁義的道理,因為他是嬰孩;惟獨長大成人的,才能吃乾粮,他們的心竅習練的通達,就能分辨好歹了。”(來6:13,14)

禱告:主耶穌,賜給我像嬰孩般的純真無邪,但不要像小孩子那樣的無知。求祢教導我在服事祢並與人相處時,在心志上、思想上、見識上活出「大人」的樣式,讓人看出我的長進來。我真誠的禱告是奉祢的名,阿們!

<<Today’s spiritual meditation>>:  “Brothers and sisters, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults.” (1Co 14:20)

Meditation one: Have you ever examined sincerely about your spiritual life? Have you grown up like an “adult” or are you still staying like a “child”? The characteristics of spiritual infants are childish, ignorant, and immature. They usually create chaos and divisions in the church. They care only about themselves in the church and do things without caring about others. Christ loves the Church, and gives Himself up for it. So Christians should not emphasize their own significances in the place where Christ gives Himself up.

Meditation two: Can Christians believe that once accepting the Lord, their spiritual lives will be mature naturally? Impossible! After believing in the Lord, you have a responsibility to press on under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, until Christ takes shape in your heart. The Bible says: “Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.” (Heb 5:13, 14)

Prayer: Lord Jesus, please give me the purity as an infant has, but not become as ignorant as a child. Ask You to teach me, in my mind, thoughts, and insights, to live out a life of an “adult” when serve You or get along with people, and let people see my progress. My sincere prayer is in Your name, Amen!
