上帝的用人(七) [Ministers of God (7)]





Book: 2 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

2 Corinthians 6:10 :“as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.”

Today’s Meditation: Sorrow and rejoice are against each other. However, they coexist in Christians’ life. The situations outside often make us sorrow, but we will rejoice once we go back to spirit. This is something worldly people hard to understand. The servants of God may look like living in tribulations and distresses, but they are actually living in the life to delight God. God is our goal, our strength and our joy. People who rely on God might be poor, but still can make people rich by giving what they have. We pray with faith to provide people. It seems like we have nothing, but yet we possess all things. ‘as’ in Verses 8 until 10 and ‘yet’ and ‘but’ in Chapter 4 Verse 8 until 9 both tell the paradox of Christians as well as Christ Himself. This is the alternate appearance of God’s nature and our nature. It is wonderful! The servants of God can fit into any form of life by relying on God who lives in them.
