“Let Christ’s Love Be Seen in Our Fervent Love and Use of Gift for One Another 讓基督的愛在我們彼此切實相愛和恩賜運用上有目共睹“（1 Peter 彼得前書 4:7-10）
The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
Many Christians who believe that Lord Jesus is coming soon based on prophecy charts and political events often fail to pray more diligently. If we really believe that we live in the last days, we must give ourselves to serious, watchful prayer, primarily having our hearts and minds watching and ready for Christ’s return. But this also means watching ourselves and watching this world, measuring our readiness for His coming. In light of eternity, we must have fervent love for one another covering over a multitude of sins. Love will show itself not only in hospitality without grumbling but also as we give to the church family what God has given us as gifts. As we do so, we are good stewards of God’s grace given to us in its various forms.
Prayer: Oh Lord Jesus, where love is lacking, every word is viewed with suspicion, every action is liable to misunderstanding, and conflicts abound – to Satan’s perverse delight. Help us to be alert and pray more diligently. Thank you for reminding us that if we are bad stewards of your manifold grace, it is as if that grace was given to us in vain. Help us to let that grace move through us so that none is wasted. Amen.
