2023-01-25 “Feeling Right Is Not the Same As Being Right”(Matthew 24:48-51)

Feeling Right Is Not the Same As Being Right 感覺對的與就是對的絶不一樣“(Matthew 馬太福音 24:48-51)

But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, “My master is staying away a long time,” and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


Too many Christians want to enjoy the thrill of feeling right but are not willing to endure the inconvenience of being right! They habitually weep and pray over beautiful truth, only to draw back from that same truth when it comes to the difficult job of putting it in practice. The average church simply does not dare to check its practices against biblical precepts. It tolerates things that are diametrically opposed to God’s will. The mind can approve and the emotions enjoy while the will drag its feet and refuses to go along! Thus it is justifiable to question whether those divided souls have ever made a true commitment to Lord Jesus or not.

太多的基督徒想要享受那份「 對」的快感,卻不願意忍受因為作得對而帶來的不便!他們慣性地為美麗的真理落淚和禱告,而當面臨那付諸實行的艱難工作時,只是退縮不前。一般教會都不敢以聖經的教導來檢視自己有否實踐真理,又容忍那些明顯與神旨意相抵觸的事情。心思贊同,情感也樂意,然而意志卻裹足不前!因此,對於那些知、行二分的靈魂曾否真正委身給主耶穌,去質疑是有理的。

Prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, indeed we might be willing to pay a small price for your abundant blessings but reluctant to carry our own cross at any expense. In fact, it is not only our sins of commission but also our sins of omission for which we will account and be judged. Forgive us if we had been among those hypocrites and help us to resume our role and responsibility as your unworthy servants and be your sober, good and faithful stewards of your kingdom. Amen.

禱告: 親愛的主耶穌,我們確實或許願意付出小小的代價,來得著你豐盛的祝福,卻不情願用任何的花費去背起自己的十字架。事實上,我們不單只為著自己行了不當作的事的罪,還有為著自己不行當作的事的罪交賬和受審判。如果我們曾經是和那些虛偽的人同在一起,求你寬恕我們,並幫助我們重拾作為不配僕人的角色和責任,與及作你國度裡清醒、良善和忠心的管家。阿們。
