认识上帝 [Understand God]

书卷:耶利米书(旧约)
作者:耶利米

耶利米书9章24节:“夸口的却因他有聪明,认识我是耶和华,又知道我喜悦在世上施行慈爱公平和公义,以此夸口。这是耶和华说的。””

今日默想:真正聪明的人只赞美上帝,从不赞美自己。哥林多前书1章31节哥林多后书10章17节都告诉我们,只有认识上帝才是夸口的依据。约翰福音17章3节也让我们知道,惟有认识上帝的人才有真智慧,因为它意味着永生。这种认识有理性的一面。人与上帝的关系有着理性的基础,而不是盲从。人要尽心、尽性、尽意事奉上帝。但认识上帝不单是理论上的理解,而是实际的体验。认识上帝表现在遵从上帝的道上

Book: Jeremiah (Old Testament)
Author: Jeremiah

Jeremiah 9:24 :“But let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgement, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight, says the Lord.”

Today’s Meditation: Only the true wise men praise God but not themselves. 1 Corinthians 1:31 and 2 Corinthians 10:17 tells us that the foundation of boasting is only at understanding God. John 17:3 also let us know that understanding God is the true wisdom, for it gives eternal life. Such understanding is on the rational side. Our relationship with God has the rational foundation. We should not be a blind follower. We need to serve God with all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our mind. However, understanding God is not just understanding the theory, but to experience it. We can know whether someone understand God or not by observing whether he obeys the way of God or not..
