认识上帝与顺服于祂 [Knowing God and Obey Him]

书卷:何西阿书(旧约)
作者:何西阿

何西阿书6章6节:“我喜爱良善,不喜爱祭祀;喜爱认识上帝,胜于燔祭。“

今日默想:良善是立约的关系,是道德伦理的基础。认识上帝也是指与上帝的关系,与祂相交。上帝的话语与作为使人能够认识到祂。认识上帝,就是与祂相交,在体验祂的时候,有信靠顺服的心。燔祭原含有顺服的意思,但是在礼仪方面表现还不足够,更应在内在的属灵的经历中。

Book: Hosea (Old Testament)
Author: Hosea

Hosea 6:6 :“For I desire mercy and not sacrifice, and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.”

Today’s Meditation: Mercy is a part of covenant and the foundation of morality. Knowing God means to connect with God. God’s words allow us to know Him. As we know more of Him, we can experience and connect with Him. We will gain the obedient mind eventually. Burnt offerings originally has a meaning of obedience. However, obedience in such ritual is insufficient. Obedience has to be practised from the spiritual level in order to be effective.
