对今日诗句的想法

就在占据了众人的心灵之后,主耶稣现在又呼召另一个门徒利未(马太)。主的这次呼召中有两点非常重要。首先,主耶稣所呼召的,是任何宗教领袖都不会选择的人——一个税吏、罗马的拥护者。对于耶稣时代的任何一个犹太人来说,马太俨然就是对自己传统和信仰的背叛者。第二,这个税吏跟从了主耶稣,放弃了他的生计和财产。这是多么让人警醒啊!提醒了我们不应放弃任何人,没有一个人是福音所无法触及的,没有一个人是主所无法使用的。

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

After capturing the hearts of the crowd, Jesus now calls another disciple, Levi (Matthew). Two things are significant about this calling. First, Jesus called someone no other religious leader would have chosen, a tax collector and Roman sympathizer — to any Jew of Jesus' era, Matthew would have seemed very much like a traitor to his heritage and to his faith. Second, the tax collector followed, leaving behind his livelihood and his fortune. This is a powerful reminder that there is no one we should write off as unreachable with the Gospel and as unusable by our Lord.

我的祷告

万民的父啊,请在今天就帮助我认出你安排在我生命中且已经预备好更加认识主耶稣的人们。请赐给我智慧和敬畏的心,使我知道何时以及如何向他们讲述我们的救主。奉主耶稣之名祈求,阿们!

My Prayer...

Father of all nations, help me recognize the people you place in my path today who are ready to know more about Jesus. Give me the wisdom and the awareness to know when and how to speak with them about my Savior. In Jesus' name. Amen.
