愿作的心 [Willing Mind]

书卷:哥林多后书(新约)
作者:保罗

哥林多后书8章12节:“因为人若有愿作的心,必蒙悦纳,乃是照他所有的,并不是照他所无的。”

今日默想:本节说明,我们向上帝的一切心愿祂都必悦纳。上帝并没有勉强我们,乃是照我们所已蒙到的恩典(所有的),为祂摆上。我们所有的是什么?我们已经把自己所有的,例如财物、时间、体力、才干等等为上帝摆上没有呢?属灵事物的原则,乃是先有愿作的心,然后照着心愿去作。我们有多少的心愿,便作多少的事。上帝不喜欢我们在教会中一点心愿都没有,却被勉强去作这作那。常听人讲,我若是有钱的话,我会捐一百万美金给主。这种愿作的心,并不是照他所有的,乃照他所无的,因此一点价值都没有。万一真的有一天有钱,那个愿作的心也不翼而飞了。我们只要照我们所有的献上,就必蒙上帝悦纳、使用并祝福,不知不觉中,我们的“所有”也就愈来愈丰富。

Book: 2 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

2 Corinthians 8:12 :“For if there is first a willing mind, it is accepted according to what one has, and not according to what he does not have.”

Today’s Meditation: This verse tells that every willing mind we have towards God will be accepted. God does not force us. We present to Him with the grace we are given (what we have). What do we have? Did we give in all we have, as in our wealth, time, stamina and ability to God? The principle of spiritual matter is to possess a willing mind then do according to the willingness. We can do as much as the amount of willing mind we have. God does not like us to have no willing mind in ministry. We often hear that one will donate a million to God if he has the money. Such mind is not based on what he have, but what he does not have. Therefore, such mind is valueless. Such mind may just disappear the day he gained the wealth. We only have to give to the Lord what we have and He will accept. He will bless and make us more abundant.
