思念美德 [Mediate on Virtues]

书卷:腓立比书(新约)
作者:保罗

腓立比书4章8节:“弟兄们,我还有未尽的话:凡是真实的、可敬的、公义的、清洁的、可爱的、有美名的,若有什么德行,若有什么称赞,这些事你们都要思念。”

今日默想:人的心思是撒旦坚固的营垒,所以若要得着一个人归服上帝,必须先将他的心思夺回。信徒应该积极、主动的运用自己的心思。如果我们的心思是消极、被动的,便会容易被魔鬼侵入并占用。撒旦若得着我们的思想生活,它就得着了我们的一切生活,所以信徒必须小心地看守我们的思想。行为孕育于思想,人的思想对人的行为有极大的影响力。一个人让什么事物占据他的心思,那个事物迟早会支配他的言语和行为。如果我们的心思都思念所该思念的美事,就不致于有分争了。一个人的思想如果被不道德的事物所污染,他内在的平安便会消失殆尽。信徒若常去思想别人身上所显出基督的美德,就会被激发、受影响,使我们得到属灵的造就。

Book: Philippians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Philippians 4:8 :“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy —— meditate on these things.”

Today’s Meditation: Our mind is a great fortress for Satan. If we want someone to obey God, we need to bring every of his thought into captivity We should be positive and active on our thoughts. If our thoughts are negative and passive, devil can intrude easily. Satan will gain control of our whole life if it gains control of our thoughts. Thus, we need to be careful for our thoughts. Our conducts come from our thoughts. Our thoughts greatly influence our conducts. The thing that occupies our thoughts will control our language and behaviour sooner or later. There is no argument if our thoughts are occupied by good things. Our inner peace will be disrupted if our thoughts are polluted by immoral things. If we constantly meditate of others’ virtues of Christ, we will be inspired and affected to be edified spiritually.
