《今日靈修默想》:「務要傳道!無論得時不得時,總要專心,並用百般的忍耐,各樣的教訓,責備人、警戒人、勸勉人。」(提後4:2 )

默想一:弟兄姊妹,你得救以後,是一直倚賴人的餵養嗎?保羅說:「我栽種了,亞波羅澆灌了,惟有神叫他生長」(林前3: 6)。我們蒙恩得救是為報恩,報恩的具體行動是傳福音。我們只管將福音的種子撒出去,聖靈自會在人心裏工作。人做的只是撒種、澆灌的工作,惟有神才能使人的生命成長。

默想二:為什麼基督徒「務要傳道」無論得時不得時?因為末世的人心必厭煩真理,耳朵發癢,喜歡聽滿足私慾並令自己舒服的新道理、新神學、新奧秘。許多的時候,我們以為靈命剛強,就是「得時」;靈命軟弱,就是「不得時」。若你要等到靈命剛強才傳福音,撒但便會一直攪擾你,讓你找到藉口而不傳福音;即使你有火熱的心,仍有許多的事來霸占你。事實上,任何時候傳福音,在神面前都是「得時」的。

禱告:感謝天父上帝,因袮已把聖經中的永生之道向我顯明,我也因信知道自己有永生。求袮使用我,只要有機會,我願意在任何的情況下跟人分享福音,讓人與我們同得福音的好處。奉耶穌基督的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.” (2Ti 4:2)

Meditation one: Brothers and sisters, have you still been depending on other people to feed you since the day you were saved? Paul said, “I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow.” (1Co 3:6) The salvation of grace was given to us and we need to respond the grace. The genuine action of responding the grace is to preach the gospel. We simply sow the seeds of the gospel, and the Holy Spirit will work in the hearts of the people. What we do is only the work of planting and watering. Only God can make people’s lives grow.

Meditation two: Why do Christians have to “preach the word” regardless in season or out of season? This is because, at the end of the ages, people’s hearts will not put up with sound doctrine, but having itching ears, and prefer to satisfy their own desires with comfortable new teachings, new theologies, and new mysteries. We often think a strong spirit means “in season” and a weak spirit indicates “out of season”. If you want to wait until your spirit is strong, then Satan will continue disturbing you to let you find excuses for not preaching the gospel. Even if you have a fervent spirit, many things can still draw you away. In fact, before God, whenever you evangelize, it is “in season”.

Prayer: Thank God heavenly Father, because You have revealed the words of eternal life in the Bible to me, and through my faith I know that I have eternal life. Please use me, as long as there is an opportunity. I am willing to share the gospel with others under any circumstances, so others can also receive the blessings of the gospel that we have. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
