《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” (Col 2:6-7)
Meditation one: Allow me to ask you, when did you believe in Jesus for the first time? Perhaps you do remember the feeling of the first time when you decided to believe in the Lord, but that does not attest that you were saved. What really can attest that you are saved is the new life that you have lived out after you believed in the Lord. A faith of life surely will long for God, seek to grow, and live out the faith in Christ.
Meditation two: Where is the foundation of your life? If your life is rooted deeply in the rock of Christ, you will live out His faith, and others will see that you belong to Christ. You will be unexpectedly surprised to find that the more you know God, the stronger your faith will be, and the more grateful heart you will have.
Prayer: God Almighty Father, thank You. For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form (Col 2:9). In order to know You more, and pursue deeper in spiritual life, I am willing to make daily meditation as my first priority in everyday life, and persevere. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ.” (Col 1:28)
Meditation one: If one day you come before the God our Father, and He asks whether you have ever shared the gospel with others while you were still living? Or He asks your where are your families? What will be you answer? We have no responsibility to save everyone, or to let everyone believe in the Lord, but simply to preach the gospel as our obligation. As for touching people’s hearts, preparing people to accept the gospel, and making people understand the truth of the gospel are God’s responsibilities.
Meditation two: What is the main purpose of evangelism? It is to fulfill the great commission of the Lord Jesus to entrust the believers, and, “with all wisdom”, to lead individuals to truly know Christ so that they can grow and mature in spiritual lives. Evangelism is not to convert people with theory, doctrine, knowledge, or enthusiasm, but to influence the lives of others with the testimony of one’s own life.
Prayer: God heavenly Father, thank You for passing the gospel to me through others. Now is the time for me to pass it on to others. From this week, no matter whomever I may meet, please give me the wisdom and courage to share Your gospel. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
