Wrong Choices May Imperil Our Freedom 錯誤的選擇可危害我們的自由“(2 Timothy 提摩太後書 2:1-2)

You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.


Right choices are critically important in the realm of religion. Some Christians go their own way where their heart is and come back to the praying company only when adversity drives them in. Viewing God-blessed freedom in Christ with such casual indifference is ominous. The Christian gospel is a message of freedom through saving grace wherewith Jesus Christ has made us free. Thus we must stand fast in such liberty. What should we do with our freedom? It may be good for us to check our spiritual condition occasionally by simple compatibility test, such as where we go when we are free to go, what we think of when we are able to think of what we will instead of what we must, etc. Our answers may tell us more than we can comfortably accept.


Prayer: Gracious and Loving Father, there is nothing that can make us as strong as saying ‘we are God’s children in Jesus Christ’ and ‘we have God’s love and favour even though we do not deserve it.’ This strength in grace is essential for our strong Christian life and true freedom in Christ. Thank you that you bring your strength to us as we seek you and rely on you instead of our own strength and wrong choices which may imperil our freedom. Amen.
