默想:

“你起初立了地的根基,天也是你手所造的。”(诗10225

静思:

我传福音已有五十多年之久,但我觉得,认识耶稣,我才刚入门。我渴望离他越来越近,明白他越来越多。

你知道保罗结束传道生涯时,说了什么吗?他说“他认识神”(参见腓310)保罗认识神吗?认识。但,即使在多年的“传道”生涯后,他对神所知甚少,有待他继续明白的事太多了。

我问你,克里斯多福·哥伦布发现了美洲新大陆,是吧?嗯,他所到之处是美洲海岸(边缘)。然而即便到了今天为止,美洲仍然有数以千计的湖泊,森林尚未命名,以及更多的地方尚未被人深入地探察过。

同样,有许多“在基督里”有待我们发现(亮光)的事。

行动:

 

你可能已经“接触”过基督,但是神的计划是要你“日渐”认识他。

BIBLE MEDITATION:

Of old hast Thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of Thy hands. Psalm 102:25

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

I’ve been preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ for more than fifty years, but I feel I’m just on the threshold of discovering Him. I want to move closer and closer to Him and learn more and more about Him.

Do you know what Paul said at the end of his ministry? That he “may know God” (see Philippians 3:10). Did he know God? Yes, but even after years of ministry, he knew so little about Him—there was so much more to know.

Let me ask you a question. Did Christopher Columbus discover America? Well, he touched on the shores of America. But even today there are thousands of unnamed lakes, forests, and more where no one has yet completely explored.

In a similar way, there is so much for us yet to discover in Christ.

ACTION POINT:

You may have “touched on” Christ, but God’s plan is that you know Him more and more each day.
