基督徒 [Christian]

书卷:彼得前书(新约)
作者:彼得

彼得前书4章16节:“若为做基督徒受苦,却不要羞耻,倒要为这名归荣耀给上帝。”

今日默想:为作基督徒而受苦,并不是一件叫我们感到羞愧的事。相反的,乃是一件叫我们觉得荣耀的事。逼迫是上帝对我们的工作认可的记号。我们不必自己去寻求苦难,也不用逃避它,只要继续去作应当作的事,无须挂虑是否会带来苦难。我们不单要因“基督徒”这称呼而感到光荣,并且要使我们整个基督徒的生活叫上帝得荣耀。一个人如果被称为基督徒,生活表现却与这称呼不符,就会叫上帝受羞辱。披戴“基督徒”这称呼,也就是愿意承担一个伟大、荣耀的责任,这责任也是十分严肃的。不论遭遇福或苦,别人可以从我们的反应而更尊敬我们,这就是归荣耀于上帝。

Book: 1 Peter (New Testament)
Author: Peter

1 Peter 4:16 :“Yet if anyone suffers as Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this matter.”

Today’s Meditation: We do not have to be ashamed to suffer as Christian. We should feel glorious instead. Compel is the sign of God acknowledging our work. We do not have to seek for tribulation or escape from it. We just have to do things we should do and have no worry about whether tribulation will happen. We not only need to be glorious for the title ‘Christian’, but also to glorify God in our whole life. A Christian will bring shame to God if he does not live as the title goes. The title ‘Christian’ is a great and glorious responsibility. People respect us through our reaction towards tribulation. This is how we glorify God.
