上帝的基业 [Inheritance of God]

书卷:以弗所书(新约)
作者:保罗

以弗所书1章18节:“并且照明你们心中的眼睛,使你们知道祂的恩召有何等指望,祂在圣徒中得的基业有何等丰盛的荣耀;”

今日默想:许多基督徒只风闻属灵事物的丰富,但不真知道其丰富荣耀的内容,所以常被世界的一切吸引,去追求物质的享受,而对属灵的事物漠不关心。人惟有心中的眼睛被开启,圣灵光照我们的心眼,才能真正的认识上帝属灵的事物,因此就开始生出渴慕与追求。我们若真看见上帝的选召充满了荣美的指望,我们的心就会受吸引爱慕那呼召我们的上帝,得以脱离属地的捆绑和辖制。属灵的长进,乃是从看见自己在基督里所得的基业,转到上帝在我们身上所得的基业。这就是从以自己为中心,变为以上帝为中心的改变。成熟的基督徒,是脱离自我中心,不再只求自己的获得,而寻求上帝在我们身上的获得。上帝既以我们为祂的基业,就必负全责来改造我们,美化我们,丰满我们。

Book: Ephesians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Ephesians 1:18 :“the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,”

Today’s Meditation: Many Christians only heard of the riches in spiritual matters without knowing the true contents within the riches. As a result, they are often distracted by the world and pursue after materialism and started to ignore spiritual matters. We can only understand the true spiritual matters of God if our minds are enlightened by the Spirit. Only then we will have the desire to pursue after spiritual matters. Our hearts will be attracted by God when we see His glorious hope. We will be able to leave the worldly binds and restrictions by then. Spiritual growth is to see the inheritance God gained from us after we gained from Christ. This is a change from self-centred to God-centred. A mature Christian is not self-centred. He seeks for what God will be able to gain from him. God will modify us, beautify us and equip us so that we fit better as His inheritance.
