地位 [Position]

书卷:哥林多后书(新约)
作者:保罗

哥林多后书12章6节:“我就是愿意夸口,也不算狂,因为我必说实话;只是我禁止不说,恐怕有人把我看高了,过于他在我身上所看见所听见的。”

今日默想:人的天性是喜欢显扬自己,但真正认识主的人却不是这样。越认识主,越要隐藏自己;越在主里面进得深的人,越知道自己微不足道,害怕自己在人的心中代替了主的地位。保罗禁止不说他的经历,是因为恐怕有人把他看高了,过于在他身上所看见、所听见的。是的,我们固然应当尊敬上帝的仆人,但也不可把他看得过高,越过了主在他身上的度量;以免产生一个后果,让他在我们身上,得着比主更高的地位。历代以来,教会的难处就是常是出在把上帝的仆人一味弃绝,或者过份高举的上面。我们该在这事上警惕,学厉害的功课,也不盲目弃绝,也不盲目跟随。

Book: 2 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

2 Corinthians 12:6 :“For though I might desire to boast, I will not be a fool; for I will speak the truth. But I refrain, lest anyone should think of me above what he sees me to be or hears from me.”

Today’s Meditation: Human likes to boast, but one who knows the Lord is not like that. As we know more of the Lord, we will want to hide ourselves more. As we go deeper with the Lord, we will know how little we are that we are afraid that someone would replace the Lord’s place in our heart. Paul refused to share his experience to avoid someone treated him above what he saw Paul to be or heard from Paul. We need to respect the servants of God, but we do not need to emphasise him too much, even more than the Lord. This is to avoid someone replacing the Lord’s position. Throughout the time, churches often ignore or exalt God’s servant. We need to be alert on this to avoid ignoring God’s servant or following unnecessary trend.
