逼迫 [Persecution]

书卷:马太福音(新约)
作者:马太

马太福音5章11节:“人若因我辱骂你们,逼迫你们,捏造各样坏话毁谤你们,你们就有福了。”

今日默想:世人在恨我们以先,已经恨主了。他们既逼迫了主,也要逼迫我们。我们若真信主,就会遭受逼迫。为主受辱乃是天国子民必有的经历。从未因主受过逼迫的,恐怕信主还不够认真。说谎和毁谤乃是迫害基督徒很普遍的方法,世人无法抓住真信徒的把柄,只好捏造事实。反过来说,我们若不讲真话,就是变相的迫害别人。有的时候,被人辱骂、逼迫还好受些,但被人捏造坏话毁谤,就比较难受,然而,无论好受或难受,我们都当超越,泰然处之。许多人在没有遇见逼迫时,显得很软弱。逼迫一来,反而变得刚强起来。这是因为他们里面的生命,显出喜欢为主站住的特性。

Book: Matthew (New Testament)
Author: Matthew

Matthew 5:11 :“Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.”

Today’s Meditation: The world hated the Lord before hating us. As we persecute the Lord, they will persecute us as well. If we truly believe in the Lord, we will be persecuted. It is a compulsory experience for us to be persecuted as the people of God. If we have yet being persecuted, it means that we are not serious enough in our faith yet. Lies and slanders are common ways to persecute us. The world cannot get a hold onto us, so they ended up saying false things. If we do not speak truth, we are saying false things. It is still acceptable if we are reviled and persecuted. False sayings are more unacceptable. We need to surpass all these regardless we are feeling acceptable or not. Many are weak before meeting persecution. They can be stronger when they are persecuted. This is due to the life of Lord in them.
