每日金句

……差遣他们……出去……

—可 6:7

…He began to send them out…

— Mark 6:7

对门徒来说,蒙耶稣呼召来跟从祂,只是一件最近才发生的事。他们一直在观察和聆听,大部分时间他们都保持沉默,而他们当中仍然未有任何人认信耶稣就是神应许的弥赛亚,他们反而常常被形容为胆怯和缺乏信心。(参可 4:40)

看来他们的信心仍然有待大幅度提升。尽管如此,他们仍然得到权柄去传道、赶鬼和医病。而他们也真的做到了!

这会因此使你更加确信吗?你有资格为耶稣作见证,不在于你有完备的信心;你成为真理的可靠见证人,不在于你有坚强的力量去相信;装备你去侍奉祂的,不在于你受的教育、训练或经验。你有能力做这些事,完全是因为耶稣的所是,而非你之所是。

跟从耶稣的人中,认为必须等到他们的信心成熟和坚定时,才可以作为门徒进入耶稣的使命来侍奉的人,实在太多了。尽管门徒的信心仍然相当肤浅,然而他们侍奉不是靠着自己信心的能力,他们乃是蒙耶稣差遣出去侍奉的。

The disciples are still very new to their calling to follow Jesus. They have watched and ­listened, but they have mainly been silent, and none of them has yet confessed to believe in Jesus as the promised Messiah. Instead, they have been described as afraid and as having no faith (Mark 4:40) .

It would seem that their faith still has a long way to go. Nevertheless, they are given authority to preach, drive out demons, and heal people who are sick. And they did!

Can you be reassured by this? It is not a perfect faith that qualifies you to testify for Jesus. It is not the strength of your power to believe that makes you a credible witness to the truth. It is not your education, training, or experience that equips you for serving him. You can do all that because of who Jesus is, not who you are.

Too many of Jesus’ followers wait to serve as disciples in the mission of Jesus until they think their faith is well developed and strong. The disciples’ faith was actually quite undeveloped, and yet they served not on the strength of their faith but on the sending of Jesus.

祷告 · Prayer

主耶稣,当我考虑我的资格、训练和信心的能力时,我不难认识到自己实在没有多少可以被祢使用的地方。尽管如此,祢仍然使用我来成就祢的旨意,感谢祢!阿们。
