依赖上帝刚强 [Be Strong in the Lord]

书卷:以弗所书(新约)
作者:保罗

以弗所书6章10节:“我还有末了的话:你们要靠着主,依赖祂的大能大力,做刚强的人。”

今日默想:基督徒刚强的秘诀,永远不在自己的努力,完全在于倚靠主。我们只有靠着祂的大能大力,才能作刚强的人。人的能力不足为恃,但上帝的能力是所向无敌的。在属灵的争战中,不是靠自己,乃是靠主。我们不是倚赖自己的能力,也不是求主加大我们的能力,乃是倚赖主的大能大力。信徒所要坚守的据点,乃是“在主里”的地位。我们留在这个地位内就是得胜;什么时候离开了这个地位,什么时候就是失败。“要”字暗示我们刚强与否,自己负有很大的责任。我们若不肯与主合作,祂的大能大力在我们身上仍无能为力。对付魔鬼,不可胆怯、逃跑,而要勇敢抵挡。所以在属灵的争战中,必须刚强壮胆。许多信徒的毛病是在上帝面前倔强、不服,在魔鬼面前却胆怯、软弱。

Book: Ephesians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Ephesians 6:10 :“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.”

Today’s Meditation: They key of Christians being strong is never in our own efforts but the Lord’s. We can only be strong by relying on His strength. We are insufficient, but God is invincible. In spiritual wars, we rely on the Lord but not ourselves. We neither rely on our own strength nor ask the Lord to strengthen us, but rely on His strength. We need to hold fast to our point, that is the position ‘in the Lord’. As long as we are in the Lord, we have victories. We will fail as soon as we leave the position. The word ‘be’ hints that we are responsible for our own. The strength of the Lord is useless on us if we refuse to cooperate with Him. We cannot be coward when dealing with devil. We need to resist it. We need to be strong in spiritual wars. Many Christians have the problem of disobeying the Lord while being coward in front of devil.
