从心里作事 [Do Things Heartily]

书卷:歌罗西书(新约)
作者:保罗

歌罗西书3章23节:“无论作什么,都要从心里作,像是给主作的不是给人作的,”
歌罗西书3章24节:“因你们知道从主那里必得着基业为赏赐。你们所侍奉的乃是主基督。”

今日默想:基督徒的工作,并无俗世的和圣的之区别。信徒若是存着为主而作的心去作,就都变成给主作的了。基督徒作事不尽职,敷衍塞责,会叫我们的主蒙羞。信徒作地上的事,不但今日得工钱,将来还会得基业的赏赐,我们怎能不努力以赴呢?信徒所作的事,表面上可能是为着别人而作,实际上所侍奉的乃是主基督。认清了这个,手中的每一件事就都变得非常有意义。我们所事奉的既然是主基督,那就要凡事寻求主的心意,不可单凭天然的热心、头脑的判断、属人的情面等而为了。

Book: Colossians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Colossians 3:23 :“And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,”
Colossians 3:24 :“knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.”

Today’s Meditation: There is no secular or sacred duties in a Christian’s life. Everything we do will be done to the Lord if we do them for Him. We may bring shame to Lord if we do not do things responsibly or do things with perfunctory attitude. What we do today can earn us both earthly wealth and reward of the inheritance. How can we not be diligent to earn them both? Things a disciple do may seem to be done to men. In fact, he is actually serving the Lord Christ. Once we understand this, everything we do will become very meaningful. We need to seek for Christ’s mind for everthing we do since we are serving Him. We cannot rely on our natural passion, judgement, personal sensibilities and others on this matter,
