慕安德烈每日灵修 God's Best Secrets by Andrew Murray

顺服

经文: 「你们要听从我的话……我也做你们的上帝。」(杰里迈亚书十一:4)

        上帝颁下诫命,要以色列人遵守祂的命令,但以色列人没办法遵行上帝的旨意,因此上帝另立「新约」,让祂的百姓有能力行出祂旨意。诸如「我要将我的律法……写在他们的心上。」(耶卅一:33)「我必将我的灵放在你们里面,使你们顺从我的律例,谨守遵行我的典章。」(结卅六:27)这些宝贵的应许,使我们乐意遵行祂的旨意,因深信就是有福的确据。
        再看看耶稣基督是怎么谈论「顺服」,「有了我的命令又遵守的,这人就是爱我的,爱我的必蒙我父爱他,我也要爱他,并且要向他显现。」(约十四:21)又说:「你们若遵守我的命令,就常在我的爱里。」(约十五:10)这些应许是取之不尽,用之不竭的宝藏,只要凭信心站在这坚固盘石上,上帝就会赐我力量,爱祂并顺服祂的旨意。
        小孩若不听话,把父母的话当耳边风,父母就无法管教他们;学生若没有受教的耳朵,老师也劝不动他们向上;士兵若不顺从军令,将军也无法指挥他们获胜。求主将这样的真理刻印在我们心版上:信心的生活就是顺服的生活。耶稣既是如此顺服上帝,我们亦当如此顺服上帝。
        然而,我们却常常听到这样的论调:「我没有办法顺服,这是完全不可能的事。」但上帝应许我们可以遵行祂的律例典章,所以祷告并默想这些话,并求圣灵打开你的心眼,使你有能力行出上帝的旨意。总之,求上帝使你与耶稣基督的关系,建立在稳定的关系上——安静地,恒切地,愿意完全地顺服基督。

OBEDIENCE

Scripture: 'Obey My voice… and I will be your God."—JER. xi. 4.

        God gave this command to Israel when He gave them the law. But Israel had no power to keep the law. So God gave them a "new covenant," to enable His people to live a life of obedience. We read (Jer. xxxi. 33), "I will write My law in their hearts" (Jer. xxxii. 40), "I will put My fear in their heart, that they shall not depart from Me." (Ezek. xxxvi. 27), "I will cause you to walk in My statutes." These wonderful promises gave the assurance that obedience would be their delight.
        Let us listen to what the Lord Jesus says about obedience (John xiv. 21-23). "He that keepeth My commandments, he it is that loveth Me; and he that loveth Me shall be loved of My Father, and I will love him, and We will make our abode with him." And in John xv. 10, "If ye keep My commandments, ye shall abide in My love." These words are an inexhaustible trea¬sure. Faith can firmly trust Christ to enable us to live such a life of love and of obedience.
        No father can train his children unless they are obedient. No teacher can teach a child who continues to disobey him. No general can lead his soldiers to victory without prompt obedience. Pray God to imprint this lesson on your heart: the life of faith is a life of obedience. As Christ lived in obedience to the Father, so we too need obedience for a life in the love of God.
        Alas, the thought is too common: "I cannot be obedient, it is quite impossible." Yes, impossible to you, but not to God. He has promised "to cause you to walk in His statutes." Pray and meditate on these words, and the Holy Spirit will enlighten your eyes, so that you will have power to do God's will. Let your fellowship with the Father and with the Lord Jesus Christ have as its one aim and object—a life of quiet, determined, unques¬tioning obedience.
