忠心服侍 [Serve Faithfully]

书卷:提摩太前书(新约)
作者:保罗

提摩太前书1章12节:“我感谢那给我力量的我们主基督耶稣,因祂以我有忠心,派我服侍祂。”

今日默想:别的宗教对其信徒只有要求,没有供应。但基督教是先有供应,后才有要求。这是基督教与其他宗教最大的不同点。主不仅在外面派给我们工作使我们服事祂,更在里面加力给我们,使我们能尽职。祂托付工作,祂也成全工作。主耶稣对待我们,不是替我们除去刺,而是给我们加力。上帝对祂仆人的要求,不是他们的才干或能力,乃是他们的忠心。才干和能力是祂加给的,忠心是我们须要付上的。真实的事奉应当是出于基督的分派,而不是出于自己。

Book: 1 Timothy (New Testament)
Author: Paul

1 Timothy 1:12 :“And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry.”

Today’s Meditation: Other religions ask from believers without supplying. Christianity is the other way where God supplies before asking. The Lord not only gives us jobs to serve Him, but also gives us power from the inside to fulfil the jobs. The Lord does not remove our sting, but He gives us power to overcome. God asks for our faithfulness instead of our abilities. Faithfulness is the one thing we need to give in. True serving is given by the Lord instead of ourselves.
