束腰 [Gird]





Book: John (New Testament)
Author: Apostle John

John 13:4 :“rose from supper and laid aside His garment, took a towel and girded Himself.”

Today’s Meditation: The first requirement to serve in church is to let down of ourselves from the seat. One who insists his position and identity will not be a good servant of the Lord. The proud one sees no one, and none is willing to receive help from the proud people. Humility is another form of love. The proud people love themselves. Only humble people can love others. If we love ourselves a lot, we cannot love others. Love is humility, and humility is willingness to deny ourselves and empty ourselves. A true great person can let down of himself from his glory. We will lose ourselves if we are arrogant. If we are afraid to lose our glory and refuse to serve people, we do not seem to be very honourable. One who is willing to let down of his glory and serve people is honourable. Our own self is the greatest trouble in spiritual matters. Lord Jesus wanted His disciples to understand their shortcomings, learn to humble, and love others more than themselves. We should gird ourselves with a towel so that our freedom is limited. We can serve more if we are willing to be limited for others.
