赞美 [Praise]

书卷:以弗所书(新约)
作者:保罗

以弗所书5章19节:“当用诗章、颂词、灵歌彼此对说,口唱心合地赞美主。”

今日默想:“被圣灵充满”的结果,就“彼此对说,口唱心和的赞美主”。因为圣灵来原本就是要荣耀基督的。是否真实圣灵的工作,就看是否更多叫基督受赞美、得荣耀。基督徒的人生不是麻醉自己的假乐,乃在灵感充满地赞美上帝。信徒的内心充满了对上帝感恩的心情,便很自然地会流露于外表。在生活上流露着敬拜和赞美,别人在他身上所碰到的,乃是敬拜的灵。在生活上给主带进敬拜里,那是我们实际操练的高点。凡从人的努力而勉强发出来的赞美,必定不会和谐,但从人心里自然发出来的赞美,乃是一首纯洁甜美的诗歌。

Book: Ephesians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Ephesians 5:19 :“speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,”

Today’s Meditation: The outcome of ‘being filled by Holy Spirit’ is ‘singing and making melody in our hearts to the Lord’. The Holy Spirit is meant to glorify Christ. We can know if a work is by Holy Spirit through observing whether Christ is being praised and glorified. The life of Christians is not about living in fake joy, but at praising the Lord with the Holy Spirit filled. Our gratitude towards God can be expressed naturally. As we express the worship and praise, people see a worshiping spirit in us. To bring our life into worship is the hardest practice we can do. The praise that comes from our diligence and reluctance may not be harmonious. However, the natural praise from our heart is sure to be a purely sweet song.
