9月7日靈修禱文|DEVOTION

These hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.

Acts 20:34

I have used none of Christian workers’ financial privileges, for it were better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying in gospel being free void.

1 Corinthians 9:15

Thought

Paul taught that Christian workers were fully entitled to financial remuneration from those they ministered. But he self-supported in order to demonstrate that the gospel was free. God was not outdone by Paul’s generosity. God raised up Lydia and Philippian church to financially support his missionary work.

Prayer

Dear Jesus, thank you for giving me such a powerful example of generous servant of yours. Thank you also for showing me that I can never be more generous to you than You are to me. Help me always to seek Your kingdom and righteousness first. In Your name. Amen.
Rev. James Chuang

我 這 兩 隻 手 常 供 給 我 和 同 人 的 需 用 , 這 是 你 們 自 己 知 道 的 。

使 徒 行 傳 20:34

但 這 權 柄 我 全 沒 有 用 過 。 我 寫 這 話 , 並 非 要 你 們 這 樣 待 我 , 因 為 我 寧 可 死 也 不 叫 人 使 我 所 誇 的 落 了 空 。

哥 林 多 前 書 9:15

思想

保羅教導說,基督的工人完全有權從服事對象收取酬勞。但保羅就選擇自我供養,以顯明福音是免費的。神比保羅更慷慨,祂興起呂底亞和腓立比教會,讓他們在財政上支持其宣教事工。

禱告

親愛的耶穌,感謝你,因你慷慨的僕人,為我樹立了有力的榜樣,也感謝你讓我知道,你對我慷慨,遠遠大於我對待你的。請幫我時刻都先求你的國和你的義。奉主名求。阿門。
