基督的仆人 [Bondservants of Christ]

书卷:以弗所书(新约)
作者:保罗

以弗所书6章6节:“不要只在眼前侍奉,像是讨人喜欢的,要像基督的仆人,从心里遵行上帝的旨意,”

今日默想:信徒表面上是作人的仆人,实际上是作基督的仆人,所以我们是在主的眼前作事,是作给主看的,不是作给人看的。一般人是为了生活而工作,因此或多或少总有“只要过得去就算了”的想法,但信徒工作不只是为生活,并且是为着主,所以应当尽力而为。信徒虽然作人的仆人,应以遵行上帝的旨意为生活的最高准则。我们的事奉,若只作在人眼前,为要讨人的喜欢,得人的称赞,那就毫无价值。若从心里乐意遵行上帝的旨意,那怕是作在暗中,无人知晓,也必蒙上帝记念,这才真是基督的仆人。信徒的事奉,不光是用身体来事奉,也要用心灵来事奉。

Book: Ephesians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Ephesians 6:6 :“not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart,”

Today’s Meditation: We look like the servants of men, but we are in fact the servants of Christ. Therefore, we do things in the eye of the Lord. We do for Him to see but not people. Normal people work for living. They may have the mindset of finishing a work and never bother with it again. However, Christians work for the Lord and should put their best effort. Although we are the servants of people, we should make obeying the will of God as the highest standard in our life. Our servings are meaningless if we just do it for people to watch, for people to praise, and to please people. If we obey the will of God willingly even though in the dark, He will remember. This is the true way of the servants of Christ. We not only serve with our bodies but also with our spirit.
