基督与十字架 [Christ and the Cross]

书卷:哥林多前书(新约)
作者:保罗

哥林多前书2章2节:“因为我曾定了主意,在你们中间不知道别的,只知道耶稣基督并祂钉十字架。”

今日默想:这里不是说传扬基督和十字架,这里乃是说只知道基督和十字架。人知道基督和十字架有多少,才能传扬基督和十字架有多少。要紧的并不是客观道理上的知道,而是主观经历上的知道。只有在日常生活中,经历并认识基督和十字架的人,才能在众人面前彰显基督和十字架。上帝所要的不是宣讲十字架的人,祂所要的乃是体认十字架的人。惟有受过十字架对付的人,才能帮助别人认识十字架。基督是上帝工作的目标,十字架是上帝工作的手段。只有让十字架来更多除去人的成分,才能更多得着基督的充满。基督和十字架乃是上帝在人里面作工的两大路线:消极方面,藉十字架除去人的旧造;积极方面,藉组织基督自己以建立新造。基督是我们的生命,十字架是我们的道路。我们所接受的,不光是基督,也是基督的十字架。我们所得着的,不光是一个生命,也是一个道路。我们得着了基督作我们的生命,我们也接受了十字架作我们的道路。

Book: 1 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

1 Corinthians 2:2 :“For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.”

Today’s Meditation: It is not about spreading Jesus Christ and the cross here, but more about knowing Jesus Christ and the cross. The more we know, the more we can spread. The important thing is to experience Christ and the cross instead of just knowing. Only those who experienced Christ and the cross can reveal Him in front of people. God does not want one who talks about the cross, but someone who experienced. Only those who experienced the cross can help people to know the cross. Christ is the motive of God’s work, while cross is His method. Only the cross can remove the composition of ourselves in order to receive more from Christ. Christ and the cross are the two pathways that God works in us. In the negative aspect, the cross removes our old self. In the positive aspect, we are rebuilt in Christ. Christ is our life, and the cross is our way. We accept both Christ and the cross. We receive not just life but also a way. We receive Christ as our life, and also the cross as our way.
