计划 [Plan]

书卷:罗马书(新约)
作者:保罗

罗马书1章13节:“弟兄们,我不愿你们不知道,我屡次定意往你们那里去,要在你们中间得些果子,如同在其余的外邦人中一样,只是到如今仍有阻隔。”

今日默想:“屡次定意”说出保罗对传福音给在罗马的人这件事,并不是随随便便、奉行公事的,而是迫切热情的。传福音必须是出于里面的负担。我们寻求上帝的旨意,固然也要考虑到环境的显明和印证。外面环境的因素并非上帝引导的惟一指标,里面的感动和负担也相当紧要。环境的不许可,并不意味着上帝的禁止。上帝的旨意和引导有其时间性,这个时候不开路,但别的时候也许就能通行无阻。有些人片面引用雅各书的话,认为基督徒行事,不该有计划,只该仰望上帝的带领。其实这是误解圣经。基督徒可以有计划,但在计划和执行之间,应该仰望上帝的带领。

Book: Romans (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Romans 1:13 :“Now I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that I often planned to come to you (but was hindered until now), that I might have some fruit among you also, just as among the other Gentiles.”

Today’s Meditation: ‘often’ reveals that Paul was not being anyhow on the matter of spreading gospel to Romans. He had the fervour in this. Spreading gospel must be from the burden inside. As we seek for the will of God, we need to think of the environment as well. The exterior environment is not the only index of God’s leading. The passion and burden in us are important as well. The unfavourable environment does not mean God is forbidding us. The will of God and His leading work with time. The time might not be right now, but might be right in the future. Some people quote from James that we as Christians should not have plans but to put our hope in God to lead us. This is actually a Biblical misinterpretation. We can have plans, but we rely on God’s leading in the plan and while carrying out the plans.
