被火试验 [Tested by Fire]

书卷:彼得前书(新约)
作者:彼得

彼得前书1章7节:“叫你们的信心既被试验,就比那被火试验仍然能坏的金子更显宝贵,可以在耶稣基督显现的时候,得着称赞、荣耀、尊贵。”

今日默想:金子经过火炼的用意,是为除去渣滓,使它更为纯净,更为珍贵。照样,我们的信心经过试炼,也就更显宝贵。既然信心经过火的试炼,就更显宝贵,那么,火的试炼本身也是宝贵的,因为它具有炼净我们信心的功用。真正的信心,虽然经过如火炼般的痛苦境遇,仍不至于动摇。凡在逆境中怀疑上帝的,恐怕他信得不够真切。真正的信心,在耶稣基督显现的时候,会得着称赞、荣耀、尊贵。信徒每一次经历信心的考验,将来都会得到上帝的奖赏。

Book: 1 Peter (New Testament)
Author: Peter

1 Peter 1:7 :“that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honour, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ,”

Today’s Meditation: Gold is tested by fire to remove dirts so that it can be more pure and precious. In the same way, our faith can be more precious if it goes through test. Since faith is more precious after tested by fire, then the fire itself is also precious for it can test our faith. The true faith will be not shaken though going through suffering situation. Those who doubt God in adversities do not have sincere faith. True faith will be praised, honoured and glorified when Jesus Christ revealed. We will get reward from God by succeeding each test of faith.
