求告主名 [Calls Upon the Name of the Lord]

书卷:哥林多前书(新约)
作者:保罗

哥林多前书1章2节:“写信给在哥林多上帝的教会,就是在基督耶稣里成圣,蒙召做圣徒的,以及所有在各处求告我主耶稣基督之名的人。”

今日默想:世上没有一个地方太过败坏,是上帝的教会不能在那里建立起来的。除非我们意识到自己是圣徒,在主里面有何等尊贵重要的地位和性质,否则就不能在地上过圣洁得胜的生活。住在基督里面,是信徒在地上过得胜生活的秘诀。“求告主名”应当是每一个信徒生活上的特征与标志。世人靠自己的聪明才干,但我们靠主的恩典和祝福。保罗写此信不但与在哥林多的圣徒交通,也与所有在各处求告主名的人交通。这说出他的交通不受一处地方的界限。只要是在主名下的,他都乐意交通。我们众人既共同享有这样一位基督,就没有彼此相分的必要。基督不单是我们的主,也是所有求告祂之人的主。既然都是属主的,所以应当彼此相爱。

Book: 1 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

1 Corinthians 1:2 :“To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all who in every place call on the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:”

Today’s Meditation: There is no such place on earth that is too corrupted to have a church of God built up. We cannot live a holy and victorious life unless we realise that we are saints in Christ. The key to live a victorious life on earth is to abide in Christ. ‘Call upon the name of the Lord’ is the characteristic and symbol of each of us. The world depends on their knowledge and skills, while we depends on the grace and blessing of God. Paul wrote this letter not only to speak with the church of God at Corinth, but also to speak with everyone who calls upon the name of Lord. This tells that his communication is not limited by places. We is willing as long as it is under the name of the Lord. We all share Christ and thus unnecessary for us to separate from one another. Christ not only is our Lord but also the Lord of whoever that calls upon Him. We should love one another since we belong to Lord.
