主的朋友 [Lord’s Friends]

书卷:约翰福音(新约)
作者:使徒约翰

约翰福音15章15节:“以后我不再称你们为仆人,因仆人不知道主人所作的事;我乃称你们为朋友,因我从我父所听见的,已经都告诉你们了。”

今日默想:主称我们为朋友,一面说出祂是何等降卑,来和我们站相同的地位,一面也说出祂在凡事上体谅我们,同情我们,帮助我们,甚至为我们舍命。人多羡慕作主的朋友,少愿作主的仆人。其实,要作主的朋友,必须先作主的仆人。人若不愿作主的仆人,也就不得作主的朋友。主的真仆人,也就是主的真朋友。我们要作主的仆人,也要作主的朋友。我们不但要与主同工,更要与主同心、同住、同行。

Book: John (New Testament)
Author: Apostle John

John 15:15 :“No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things I heard from My Father I have made known to you.”

Today’s Meditation: Lord addresses us as friends. This not only shows His humility as He stands at the same position as us, but also tells us that He forgives, mercies, assists us, and also willing to die for us. We all hope to be His friends than His servants. In fact, we need to be His servants before becoming His friends. One cannot be Lord’s friend without being a servant first. A true servant of Lord is a true friend of His. We have to be His servants and friends. We not only work together with Him, but also abide in Him.
