接受 [Accept]

书卷:耶利米书(旧约)
作者:耶利米

耶利米书1章7节:“耶和华对我说:你不要说‘我是年幼的’,因为我差遣你到谁那里去,你都要去;我吩咐你说什么话,你都要说。”

今日默想:耶利米的反对被驳回,因为他所传信息的权威在于拣选他的那一位。上帝拒绝了先知的理由,明确地向他宣布了祂的旨意。在上帝下达命令的时候,不可再有私心杂念。我们唯一的责任就是顺从。耶利米必须前往上帝所指示的任何地方或任何对象,不论是拜偶像的国王,说谎的先知,还是不公正的法官,总之包括各个等级的人,无论他们多么显赫,或有权有势。耶利米曾说:我不知怎样说。上帝的回答是:无论我吩咐你说什么话,你都要说。上帝会使祂胜任祂奉命所做的任何事情。

Book: Jeremiah (Old Testament)
Author: Jeremiah

Jeremiah 1:7 :“But the Lord said to me: Do not say, ‘I am a youth’, for you shall go to all to whom I send you, and whatever I command you, you shall speak.”

Today’s Meditation: The reply of Jeremiah was turned down, for the message he spread is at the One selected him. God rejected his reason and declared His will clearly. We should not have any selfish thoughts when God is giving His order. Our only responsibility is to obey. Jeremiah had to head to any place and anyone, regardless a king who had an idol, a lying prophet, or an unjust judge. This included all sorts of people from different level, regardless how prominent and powerful they were. Jeremiah once said, he did not know how. God replied that he must say whatever God ordered. God will let anyone He trusts to do anything.
