跟从主 [Follow the Lord]

书卷:马太福音(新约)
作者:马太

马太福音9章9节:“耶稣从那里往前走,看见一个人名叫马太,坐在税关上,就对他说:你跟从我来。他就起来,跟从了耶稣。”

今日默想:不是我们寻找主,乃是主来寻找我们。主的呼召,使我们能离弃罪恶跟从祂。人若没有听见主的呼召,就没有法子跟从主。呼召一来,人非听从不可。主若吸引,我们就快跑跟随祂。主所要求我们的,不只是相信祂,还要跟从祂。跟从主,就是在十字架的道路上遵行上帝的旨意。只信主而不跟从主的人,上帝用不着他。基督徒的生活,就是“跟从主”。跟从主,就是有分于主的患难、忍耐、国度

Book: Matthew (New Testament)
Author: Matthew

Matthew 9:9 :“As Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax office. And He said to him, Follow Me. So he arose and followed Him.”

Today’s Meditation: It is not us who seek but the Lord who seeks for us. The calling of the Lord can make us leave sins and follow Him. We cannot follow the Lord without hearing His calling. We need to respond to the calling positively. We should run after the Lord if He attracted us. The Lord not only wants us to believe in Him but also to follow Him. Follow the Lord is to obey the will of God on the way of the cross. God does not need those who believe without following. The life of Christians is to “follow the Lord”. Following the Lord is to share the tribulation and kingdom and patience of the Lord.
