《今日靈修默想》:我就撲倒在地,聽見有聲音對我說:「掃羅,掃羅!你為什麼逼迫我?」我回答說:「主啊,你是誰?」祂說:「我就是你所逼迫的拿撒勒人耶穌。」(徒22:7-8)

默想一:掃羅信主前為「神」大發熱心,主耶穌怎麼對他說「你為什麼逼迫我?」想想你自己的服事心態,是為自己還是為神?榮耀神還是羞辱神?是事奉神還是逼迫神?為神大發熱心,卻不按著真知識是絆倒人的。盲目的熱心卻不認識神的服事,是不會持久的。

默想二:你認識主耶穌嗎?不是理性上的贊同,而是真正與復活的主相遇,與祂是有直接的、面對面的、相屬的關係,並非與祂是間接的、聽說的、表明的關係。只有蒙神光照,人才會真正認識主。也只有真正認識主的事奉是神所悅納的。

禱告:天父上帝,感謝祢在我認識祢之前,祢已經認識了我。求祢將那賜人智慧和啟示的靈賞給我,使我真知道祢。也教導我如何盡心、盡意、盡力愛祢,並且愛人如己。奉耶穌基督的名禱告,阿們!

《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!
