照旨意献给主 [Give Ourselves to the Lord by the Will]





Book: 2 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

2 Corinthians 8:5 :“And not only as we had hoped, but they first gave themselves to the Lord, and then to us by the will of God.”

Today’s Meditation: God wants us instead of our wealth. We often want peace and blessings in God, while God wants us. The spiritual foundation of wealth devotion is at giving ourselves to the Lord first. We can follow the Lord by acknowledging His power. We cannot keep up with the will of God if we keep ourselves. This principle applies to all things. Paul did not like to be exalted, hence the “and then to us” does not bring the meaning of self-deification. We should not possess the mindset and attitude of “I belong to someone”. As we give ourselves to the Lord according to His will, He will come to us by His will. We will unite in Christ then. Keeping ourselves, devote or do things selfishly can have ourselves ended up against people who truly follow the will of God.
