软弱时刚强 [Strong When Weak]

书卷:哥林多后书(新约)
作者:保罗

哥林多后书12章10节:“我为基督的缘故,就以软弱、凌辱、急难、逼迫、困苦为可喜乐的,因我什么时候软弱,什么时候就刚强了。”

今日默想:我们事奉主不能免于受苦。受苦能毁人也能立人,但均由我们自决。我们不能决定苦难的程度,或它在何时会来临。但是,我们可以决定对苦难作何反应。我们宁可拣选软弱与苦难作为夸口的题材,而不愿夸耀被提到乐园里去。上帝从不减少我们的软弱。祂的拯救,乃是以大能的基督,作我们丰满的恩典,好使我们什么时候软弱,什么时候就刚强了。如此,我们什么时候哀愁,什么时候就喜乐了;什么时后空虚,什么时候就满足了;什么时候受压,什么时候就高升了。这实在是似乎矛盾却又真确的奇妙故事。阿利路亚!

Book: 2 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

2 Corinthians 12:10 :“Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

Today’s Meditation: There is no escape from suffers if we were to serve the Lord. Suffers can destroy or build a person. It is entirely up to that person. We cannot decide the intensity of suffers or the time it will come. However, we can control our reactions towards the suffers. We should rather boast of our weak and sufferings rather than the condition that we are getting into Heaven. God never decreases our weaknesses. His salvation is the power of Christ and the abundance of fullness. Through these, we can be strong when we are weak. We will be joyful when we are sad; we will be filled when we feel meaningless; we will be raised when we are suppressed. This seems paradox but it is true. Hallelujah!
