拔摩的海岛 [Island Called Patmos]

书卷:启示录(新约)
作者:使徒约翰

启示录1章9节:“我约翰就是你们的弟兄,和你们在耶稣的患难、国度、忍耐里一同有份,为上帝的道,并为给耶稣作的见证,曾在那名叫拔摩的海岛上。”

今日默想:我们都是同作弟兄姐妹的,也都必须像彼得前书5章9~10节所说,有同样为主和祂的国度受苦并忍耐的经历。十字架是进入国度的必经考验,忍耐是通过十字架考验的必学功课。在我们的基督徒经历中,有一个处境叫作“拔摩的海岛”。那是一个被人厌弃,孤单无助的感觉,然而却是我们得与主同在,看见主异象的绝佳机会。

Book: Revelation (New Testament)
Author: Apostle John

Revelation 1:9 :“I, John, both your brother and companion in the tribulation and kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was on the island that is called Patmos for the word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.”

Today’s Meditation: We as brothers and sisters have to be like as said in 1 Peter 5:9~10 where we have to be in tribulation for the kingdom of Lord and have patience in the suffers. Cross is the test to enter the kingdom of God, while patience is the must-learn to pass the test. We as Christians have an island that is called Patmos in our experiences, where we are rejected and thrown into helpless and lonely situation. However, this is a chance for us to be with God and witness His wonder.
