每日灵粮(2012-09-10):完全的喜乐

Philippians 2:1-5

COMPLETE JOY

"Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus . . . ." Philippians 2:5

                                              

  In these verses the apostle Paul urges us to turn good information into responsible ac-tion.

  Television infomercials invite us to embrace the prospect of having a perfect body, perfect sleep, or perfectly clean air. And if we follow their reasoning, the results appear obvious—or at least we're led to think so.

  For true followers of Jesus, the results of being "united with him" are obvious. People who have "fellowship with the Spirit" will exercise the same attitude as Jesus Christ. Having been birthed in his love, they love one another. Having received his joy, they seek to complete it by partnering in the gospel's purpose.

  Two key principles are given to help believers here. First, we must avoid "selfish ambition." And, second, we must consider the interests of others.

  Ultimately, Christians are invited to see themselves as sponges. Just as we use a sponge to soak up water in order to squeeze it out, so believers receive God's generous joy in order to share it with others.

  So if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, then allow the Holy Spirit to squeeze your life so that Jesus' good name, his generous love, and his joy-filled grace will flow through you deep into the hearts of others. The Bible's message of joy is given not for information but for transformation.

                                              

PRAYER

Dear Lord, thank you for filling my life with your generous grace. By your Spirit use me as a pipeline to bring the joy of Christ into the lives of others. In his name, Amen.

 

腓立比书2:1-5

完全的喜乐
"你们当以基督耶稣的心为心……" 腓2:5

  使徒保罗在今天的这段经文中,催促我们把接收到的好资讯转化为有责任感的行动。

  电视的资讯广告吸引我们去拥有完美的体型、理想的睡眠或清新的空气。他们声称假如我们接受他们一套理念,便会得到显着效果 —— 或至少令我们相信是这样。

  对真正跟随耶稣的人来说,"与祂合一"的效果是显着的。"与圣灵交通"的人,会以耶稣基督的心为心。他们因着耶稣的爱而得到重生,因此便彼此相爱。他们因着耶稣的拯救而喜乐,因此便携手同心,传扬福音。

  这提出可以帮助信徒的两个重要原则。第一,不可结党;第二,必须顾别人的事。

  最后,基督徒要视自己像海绵一样。就像我们用海绵吸水,然后再将水挤压出来,同样,信徒领受神厚赐的喜乐,是要把这喜乐拿出来与人分享的。

  所以,若你已与基督合一,得着了喜乐的生命,便要让圣灵挤压你的生命,好让耶稣的美名、祂厚赐的爱,以及祂充满喜乐的恩典,从你身上倾注到别人的内心深处。圣经所说的喜乐,不是提供资讯,而是要更新生命。

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
祷告

亲爱的主,感谢祢厚赐恩典来充满我的生命。求祢藉着圣灵使用我成为流通管子,把基督的喜乐注入别人的生命中。奉耶稣的名求,阿们。
