为主名受辱 [Suffer Shame for the Lord]

书卷:使徒行传(新约)
作者:路加

使徒行传5章40节:“公会的人听从了他,便叫使徒来,把他们打了,又吩咐他们不可奉耶稣的名讲道,就把他们释放了。”
使徒行传5章41节:“他们离开公会,心里欢喜,因被算是配为这名受辱。”

今日默想:我们为着这个人所藐视、上帝所宝贵的耶稣之名受辱,乃是真正的尊贵。仇敌可以伤害主的工人,却不能使他们向主的心软化。身上的伤痕不是他们的羞辱,而是他们的荣耀和喜乐。若为作基督徒受苦,却不要羞耻,彼得前书4章16节提醒我们倒要因这名归荣耀给上帝。信徒生活在世,常是苦难越多,喜乐也越加添。

Book: Acts (New Testament)
Author: Luke

Acts 5:40 :“And they agreed with him, and when they had called for the apostles and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go.”
Acts 5:41 :“So they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His name.”

Today’s Meditation: It is a true prestige for us to suffer and be despised for the name of Christ. The enemies may hurt the servants of God, but they cannot weaken the their mind of relying on the Lord. The scars on their bodies are not their shame, but their glory and joy. We should not be ashamed to suffer as Christian, for 1 Peter 4:16 reminds us to glorify God in this matter. We have tribulations and joys as we live on earth.
