软弱,惧怕,战兢 [Weakness, Fear, Tremble]

书卷:哥林多前书(新约)
作者:保罗

哥林多前书2章3节:“我在你们那里,又软弱,又惧怕,又甚战兢。”

今日默想:保罗的天然生命强过常人,但他竟然在事奉中感到软弱,惧怕,又甚战兢。这正是十字架在他身上作工的记号。因此圣灵的大能也就那样藉他显出。所以在事奉中,首要的,不是圣灵的能力,而是十字架的死。软弱、惧怕、战兢,不是在外面装出来的态度,乃是从里面显出来的光景。我们要知道,是先有十字架的经历,然后产生那个态度。我们若光有十字架的态度,而没有十字架的经历,就没有属灵的价值。保罗说他自己是又软弱,又惧怕,又甚战兢。他是一个认识十字架的人,所以他能有这一个态度。认识十字架的人知道:上帝肯借着人作工,但是上帝不肯叫人觉得他自己能作什么。传道人不敢倚靠自己,深怕自己出头,战兢仰望上帝的帮助,这是工作成功的秘诀。

Book: 1 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

1 Corinthians 2:3 :“I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling.”

Today’s Meditation: Paul’s natural life was stronger than anyone, but he felt weak, feared, and trembled. This is the sign of the cross that worked on him. Thus, the power of Holy Spirit was revealed through him. We need the death on the cross in any serving before the power of Holy Spirit. Weakness, fear, and trembles are not acted out, but are the prospects revealed from inside. We need to experience the cross before having that attitude. There is no spiritual value if we have the attitude of the cross without such experience. Paul said he was weak, in fear, and trembled. He had the attitude because he was someone who knew the cross. One who knew the cross will know that God will use us, but not to let us feel what we can do. Preachers do not rely on themselves, but rely on God’s help. This is the success of works.
