默想:

“我虽是自由的,无人辖管,然而我甘心作了众人的仆人,为要多得人。”(林前919

灵思:

“顺服”(至少)基于三种原因

作为奴仆,“必须”顺服。

作为员工,“必须”顺服。

作为神的子女,“甘心”顺服。

耶稣说:“以后我不再称你们为仆人,因仆人不知道主人所作的事;我乃称你们为朋友,因我从我父所听见的,已经都告诉你们了。”(约1515)耶稣对我们的爱,使我们甘心做他的仆人。

行动:

我不为我的“得救”工作——“得救”的工作已由主做成。但,因着神的爱,我会像仆人一样为主工作。你是这样吗?

BIBLE MEDITATION:

For though I be free from allmen, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.1 Corinthians 9:19

 DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

There are three reasons for being obedient:

A slave obeys because he has to.

An employee obeys because he needs to.

But a loving son obeys because he wants to.

So many of us live like slaves, obeying out of obligation, when Jesus has said, “Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth. But I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of My Father, I have made known unto you” (John 15:15).

ACTION POINT:

I don’t work for my salvation—that work has been done by my Lord. But I will work like any slave for the love of God. What about you?

Love worth finding
