1 Corinthians 2

July - 17

 

 

THE ESSENTIAL SPIRIT

 

The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God. 1 Corinthians 2:14

 

 

I barely remember her coming to our Bible study. For about a year an average of a dozen people met each Tuesday morning, and Rose came just a handful of times. On one of those times, though, she heard the gospel and believed in Jesus, and a few weeks later she showed up in church—she alone of all the others in that Bible study. What happened?

 

It’s clear that we have responsibilities in God’s mission to the world. But it is equally clear that we are not solely responsible—or even primarily so. The sailor must unfurl the sails, but it’s the wind that moves the ship.

 

“The wind blows wherever it pleases . . .” says Jesus. “You cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit” (John 3:8). So it was in the life of Rose. Unseen by anyone pres¬ent, the Holy Spirit was working in her heart.

 

It’s difficult to talk about the work of the Spirit. Like the wind, the Spirit is mysterious, invisible, and yet powerful. We see evidence of his presence, but we do not know where he might be working or where he is going.

 

The immensity and difficulty of our mission, along with our own weaknesses, can easily overwhelm us. We need to remind ourselves that we are not alone. The mighty Spirit of God is present with us, preparing and transforming hearts as he works wonders in this world.

 

PRAYER

 

Holy Spirit, we often misunderstand your presence in our own lives. Teach us to rely on your power for living and to follow where you lead. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

 

哥林多前书   2

不可或缺的灵

 

「属血气的人不领会神圣灵的事。」 林前2:14

 

 

我已差不多记不起她曾经参加过我们的查经班了。那个查经班每周二上午聚会,维持了约一年的时间,每次平均有十二人出席,而鲁思只出现过几次。尽管如此,她在其中一次聚会中听了福音,而且相信了耶稣。几星期之后,她在教会出现 ——但所有查经班成员中只有她一人出现,到底是怎么回事呢?

 

我们显然在福音的使命中有我们的责任,但同样明显的是,我们不是独力承担这个责任的,亦不是主要承担责任的人。水手必须扬帆冲浪,但令船航行的,却是风。

 

耶稣说:「风随着意思吹,你听见风的响声,却不晓得从哪里来,往哪里去;凡从圣灵生的,也是如此」(约翰福音3:8)。鲁思的生命也是如此,圣灵在她的心.作工,但在场的人都不能看见。

 

谈到圣灵的工作,并不容易。圣灵就好像风一样,神秘莫测,无影无踪,但却是大有能力。我们看到祂存在的明证,却不知道祂会在哪里作工,要往哪里去。

 

我们的使命既艰且巨,再加上一己的软弱,实在很容易令我们不知所措。我们要提醒自己,我们不是孤军作战的,因为有神的灵与我们同在,祂在这世上行神迹奇事的同时,也会预备和改变我们的内心。

 

祷告

 

 圣灵啊,我们常常不察觉祢在我们的生命中,求祢教导我们在生活上倚靠祢的能力,并跟随祢的带领。奉耶稣之名求,阿们。
