专一事奉 [Minister Single-Minded]

书卷:罗马书(新约)
作者:保罗

罗马书12章6节下半段:“…或说预言,就当照着信心的程度说预言;”
罗马书12章7节:“或做执事,就当专一执事;或做教导的,就当专一教导;”
罗马书12章8节:“或做劝化的,就当专一劝化;施舍的,就当诚实;治理的,就当殷勤;怜悯人的,就当甘心。”

今日默想:这里有话语的职事,也有教会里服事的职事,后者好像利未人的工作。这里是说,每一个有恩赐的,不管是话语的职事,或者是服事的职事,那一个命令乃是要专一的做。每一个人在上帝面前都应该知道他能做什么,都应该知道主所给他的恩赐是什么。知道了,就当专一的去做,不管别的事。每一个人都应当事奉,每一个人都应当专一的事奉,专一的做他所该做的事。换一句话说,不应该干涉别人的事,践踏别人的脚。你走你的路,你按着上帝所给你的恩赐来做。人的天性,总是欢喜做别人所做的事。我们在事奉中,常喜欢和别人做比较。其实各人都有上帝赐给各人的那一份,我们要宝贵上帝所给的那一份,就在那一份上专心。

Book: Romans (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Romans 12:6 back part :“… if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith;”
Romans 12:7 :“or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching;”
Romans 12:8 :“he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.”

Today’s Meditation: There are gifts of words and serving here, just like the works of Levites. That says, each one of us has the gift regardless from the words or serving. The order here is to tell us to concentrate on the gifts. Each one of us should know what we can do and what gifts the Lord gave us. We should use those gifts right after we know. We all should serve, and serve with concentration. We should not interfere with others’ matters and trample their way. We should walk our own and do according to the gifts God gave us. It is the nature of human to do things others do. Some often like to compare with others when serving. In fact, each one of us has the portion God gave. We should precious that portion and use it single-minded.
