不求自己的喜悦 [Does Not Please Ourselves]

书卷:罗马书(新约)
作者:保罗

罗马书15章3节:“因为基督也不求自己的喜悦。如经上所记:辱骂你人的辱骂都落在我身上。”

今日默想:肉体的天性,总是只求自己的喜悦――合于自己的看法,顺乎自己的习惯,贪求自己的利益等。基督的性质,却是“不求自己的喜悦”――放弃自己的看法,反乎自己的兴味,不顾自己的利益等。活在只求自己喜悦的原则中,自然就彼此论断,互相绊跌。活在不求自己喜悦的原则中,自然就彼此建立、彼此同心、彼此接纳。所以教会的光景是否正常,乃在大家是否肯活在基督的原则中。

Book: Romans (New Testament)

Romans 15:3 :“For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, the reproaches of those who reproached you fell on Me.”

Today’s Meditation: The nature of carnal is to seek for our own pleasures. Examples are fitting our own opinions, do things according to our own habits, and seek for our own benefits. The nature is Christ is but “not pleasing Himself”. His way is to give up our own opinions, go against our own interests, and to neglect our own benefits. It causes judging one another and stumbling one another if we only seek for our own pleasures. If we choose to let go of such pleasures, we can edify one another, be like-minded, and to receive one another. Thus, the normality of a church prospects can be determined by observing whether the people are living in the principles of Christ.
