心中盼望的缘由 [Reason for the Hope]

书卷:彼得前书(新约)
作者:彼得

彼得前书3章15节:“只要心里尊主基督为圣。有人问你们心中盼望的缘由,就要常作准备,以温柔、敬畏的心回答各人。”

今日默想:真正尊主基督为圣的人,应当让祂主宰我们生命的每一范畴,包括我们的财产、职业、收藏、婚姻、闲暇等等。人若心里尊主基督为大,对这人来说,生命中最宝贵的,乃是他与上帝之间的关系,而这关系是世上任何事物也不能夺去的。一位有主在心的人,必定满有敬畏及温柔。他敬畏上帝,因为他深知上帝是那一位。他有温柔,因为他是由上帝作主,而非自我作主。一个可悲的现象,就是有许多基督徒对本身所信的是什么,及为什么要信,都哑口无言,或一窍不通。基督徒必须在心智与属灵上作好准备,能为自己的信仰作出合理的解释。

Book: 1 Peter (New Testament)
Author: Peter

1 Peter 3:15 :“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defence to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;”

Today’s Meditation: One who truly sanctifies God will let Him to control every part of his life from his properties, careers, collections, marriage to casual time. One who truly sanctifies God will have his relationship with God as the most important part of his life. Such relationship cannot be replaced. One with the Lord in his heart will have fear and meekness. He fears God because he knows that God is the One. He has meekness because he let God to be his ruler. A pathetic phenomenon in current world is that many Christians are not aware of their faith and the reason to believe in. We need to be prepared both on our knowledge and spiritual level to give explanation about our faith anytime.
