《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “I fell to the ground and heard a voice say to me, ‘Saul! Saul! Why do you persecute me?’‘Who are you, Lord?’ I asked.’ ‘I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom you are persecuting,’ he replied.” (Act 22:7-8)
Meditation one: Before Saul believed in the Lord, he was zealous for ”God”. What does the Lord Jesus say to him, “Why do you persecute me?” Think about your own ministry mentality; is it for yourself or for God? Is it to glorify God or to humiliate God? Is it to serve God or to persecute God? Zealous for God, but not according to the true knowledge (Rom 10:2) can trip people. Blind zeal, but not knowing God’s ministry, will not last.
Meditation two: Do you know the Lord Jesus? It is not a rational consent, but to meet the resurrected Lord with a true interaction, which is a direct, face-to-face inter-relationship instead of an indirect, be informed or symbolic relationship. Only upon God’s shining light will a person truly know the Lord. Only a ministry that truly knows the Lord will please to God.
Prayer: God heavenly Father, thank You for knowing me even before I met you. Give me the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that I may know You better. Please teach me how to love You with all my heart, with all my soul, and with all my strength, and love my neighbor as myself. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
