所得的恩赐 [The Given Gifts]

书卷:提摩太前书(新约)
作者:保罗

提摩太前书4章14节:“你不要轻忽所得的恩赐,就是从前藉着预言、在众长老按手的时候赐给你的。”

今日默想:若要完成持守真道的使命,并非仅靠忠心与热忱即足够,还须好好运用所得的恩赐。上帝既将恩赐赐给了我们,这就等于祂将责任托付给了我们,因此我们不可轻忽。除了方言之外,没有一样恩赐是为个人的,因此恩赐如同公物一般不可私藏。保罗在这里提到恩赐时,特别也提到众长老的按手,由此可见恩赐与教会息息相关。恩赐是为着教会,教会也见证并加强恩赐。

Book: 1 Timothy (New Testament)
Author: Paul

1 Timothy 4:14 :“Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership.”

Today’s Meditation: If we want to maintain ourselves on the way of God, we not only need to have loyalty and passion, but also to use the gifts properly. God gave us the gifts as He handed the responsibilities to us. Thus, we should not neglect the gifts that are in us. Aside from speaking in tongue, other gifts are for public and should not be hidden. When Paul mentioned gifts here, he specially mentioned the laying on of the hands of the eldership. We can see that gifts are related to church. Gifts are for church, and church witnesses while enhances the gifts.
