《今日靈修默想》:「但神既然驗中了我們,把福音託付我們,我們就照樣講,不是要討人的喜歡,乃是要討那察驗我們心的神喜歡。」(帖前2:4)

默想一:傳福音為什麼是很榮耀的事?因為那是神呼召我們的心意。神要使用,祂才託付。領受神的託付,能與神同工,被祂使用,是何等榮耀的服事。傳福音這件事之所以貴重,因它關係著人們的永生和永死。我們凡事要將眼光放得長遠,今天一切的活動,都要以當主再來時如何向祂交待為觀點,這會使我們對傳福音有完全不同的表現。

默想二:我們要如何忠於神的託付?就是神託付我們什麼,我們就傳什麼。我們不能為了討人的喜歡,就扭曲或刪改基督的福音。我們也不可為迎合聽眾的口味,就講一般人喜歡聽或滿足人心的話。我們傳講的是「耶穌基督並祂釘十字架」(林前2:2)。無論人的反應如何,我們都要忠心地宣講這信息,藉以討神喜悅。

禱告:天父上帝感謝袮。像我如此渺小的人竟然蒙袮看重,成為基督的使者。求袮幫助我,我願以感恩的心見證袮,以謙卑的心事奉袮。奉主耶穌的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “We speak as those approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel. We are not trying to please people but God, who tests our hearts.” (1Th 2:4)

Meditation one: Why is evangelism a glorious ministry? Because that is God’s purpose to call us. God wants to use us so He entrusts us. It is a glorious ministry to receive God’s trust, to be able to work together with God, and to be used by Him. The reason why evangelism is precious is because it relates to people’s eternal life and eternal death. We must have long-term visions in all things. Everything in today’s activities must be presented in the perspective of Lord’s second coming. This will drive us a completely different manifestation about evangelism.

Meditation two: How can we be faithful to what God has entrusted to us? That is we pass on whatever God is entrusting us. We cannot distort or revise the gospel of Christ for the sake of delighting people. Nor can we just say things that people like to hear and satisfy their tastes. What we preach is “Jesus Christ and Him crucified” (1Co 2:2). No matter how people respond, we must faithfully preach this message in order to please God.

Prayer: God Heavenly Father, thank You. A trivial person like me surprisingly have been valued by You and become a messenger of Christ. Please help me. I would like to testify You with a grateful heart, and to serve You with a humble mind. I pray in the name of Jesus, Amen!
