为主名受辱 [Suffer Shame for the Lord]





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.
