不夸世界 [Not Boasting the World]

书卷:哥林多前书(新约)
作者:保罗

哥林多前书3章21节:“所以无论谁,都不可拿人夸口,因为万有全是你们的。”

今日默想:属肉体的人炫耀被造的人,属灵的人却夸耀造物主。基督徒应当认识:基督里的一切远超过世界的一切。基督徒拿世界的智慧和渺小的人为夸口,无异于自贬身价,因在基督恩典下,万有全是我们的,而我们又是属基督的,理当以基督为夸口,就不至于分别轻重,各不相合了。教会既与耶稣基督一同承受万有,只能以比万有更伟大的主夸口,不该再分彼此,各自拿人夸口了。高抬任何主的工人,并不能给自己增添什么益处,反而招来亏损。无穷的宝库原是属于信徒的,竟自己甘愿为那工人放弃了。把自己与党派认同,无异把自己放在奴隶的地位。事实上信徒应当是万有的主人,并不隶属于任何人或团体。

Book: 1 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

1 Corinthians 3:21 :“Therefore, let no one boast in men. For all things are yours:”

Today’s Meditation: Carnal men boast the created while spiritual men boast the Creator. We should understand that everything in Christ surpasses this world. We should not boast of this world and its people because such act will only lower our standards. All things are ours in the grace of Christ. We need to boast Christ because We are Christ’s. Churches inherit all things with Christ. Thus, we only boast Christ instead of anyone. Exalting anyone does not bring any benefit but losses instead. The infinite treasure belongs to those who believed. We cannot give these up for this world. We are putting ourselves at the position of slave if we agree with any faction on this world. We are not attached to anyone or organisation because We belong to God.
