318 我達到這水平嗎?

敬畏神,得以成聖。(林後七1

我們既有這等應許。這原是對的,不過只是人的方面;在神的方面來說,透過這些應許,人要承認神的主權。比方,我把身體看為是聖靈的殿呢,還是讓劣根性存著,使不能反照神的光?藉著成聖稱義,神的兒子住在我裡面,但我必須順服他,叫天然的生命改變成為屬靈的生命。

神的教導,是一絲不苟的;他查究你的時候,不要與血肉之人商議,而要立即自潔。在每日的生活行事上,保守自己聖潔無污。

我要除掉肉體及心靈中一切的污穢,使與神的性情一致。我心裡的意念與神兒子在我裡頭的生命,是否吻合?他從不憑自己說什麼,乃時常儆醒,對父神不住的順服。我要持守與主的靈合一,耶穌就會逐漸把我抬舉,到他當日的光景裡去——完全貼合父神的旨意,至於其他的事就一概不理。我有沒有敬畏神,追求這一種聖潔,且力臻完善?神在我身上能遂其所願嗎?人家能從我身上愈來愈多看見神嗎?

認認真真對神吧,其他的一切則視作等閒。要切切實實地把神放在首位。

祈禱我是那樣愚頑和無知:我在你面前好像畜類。噢,主啊,這句話將我在你面前的光景表達出來。當我從那純潔、神聖的神的形象,查看我們的主的要求時,我為著本身的愚頑、如畜類的思想,深感羞愧。


March 18 Shall I Rouse Myself Up To This?

“Perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” 2 Corinthians 7:1

“Having therefore these promises.” I claim the fulfilment of God’s promises, and rightly, but that is only the human side; the Divine side is that through the promises I recognize God’s claim on me. For instance, am I realizing that my body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, or have I a habit of body that plainly will not bear the light of God on it? By sanctification the Son of God is formed in me, then I have to transform my natural life into a spiritual life by obedience to Him. God educates us down to the scruple. When He begins to check, do not confer with flesh and blood, cleanse yourself at once. Keep yourself cleansed in your daily walk.

I have to cleanse myself from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit until both are in accord with the nature of God. Is the mind of my spirit in perfect agreement with the life of the Son of God in me, or am I insubordinate in intellect? Am I forming the mind of Christ, Who never spoke from His right to Himself, but maintained an inner watchfulness whereby He continually submitted His spirit to His Father? I have the responsibility of keeping my spirit in agreement with His Spirit, and by degrees Jesus lifts me up to where He lived – in perfect consecration to His Father’s will, paying no attention to any other thing. Am I perfecting this type of holiness in the fear of God? Is God getting His way with me, and are other people beginning to see God in my life more and more?

Be serious with God and leave the rest gaily alone. Put God first literally.
