420 聖徒也讒謗神?

神的應許,不論有多少,在基督裡都是是的,所以借著他也都是實在的。(林後一20

耶穌在馬太福音二十五章所說的比喻,是一個警告,指出我們對自己的能力也會判斷錯誤。這比喻所論到的與天然的稟賦毫不相涉,乃是指聖靈所賜給人的恩賜所言。屬靈的才幹決不是以學識或才智去衡量,而是以神的應許去衡量。我們所得的若少於神所要我們得的,過不多時,我們就會埋怨神,好像那僕人埋怨主人一樣:你對我要求這麼高,卻沒有給我足夠的能力,你太苛求了;你放我在這崗位上,我根本無法向你效忠。這涉及神的全能的問題,切勿說我不能。千萬別讓天然的才幹限制了你。我們若接受了聖靈,神就希望聖靈的工作在我們身上彰顯出來。

但僕人事事自以為是,反倒處處怪責主人:你的要求,與你所賦予我的才幹,根本不成比例。神說:先求我的國和我的義,這些東西都要加給你們了。你竟憂愁掛慮,對神大肆謗瀆?憂慮意味著這僕人在想:我知道你會在我遇危難時,丟下我不顧。一個天生怠惰的人,總是吹毛求疵說:我根本沒有機會。一個在屬靈上怠惰的人,同樣向神吹毛求疵。懶惰的人總愛我行我素,有他獨創的主意。

不要忘記,在屬靈上的才幹,是以神的應許來量度的。神能成就他的應許嗎?答案就視乎我們有沒有接受聖靈。

祈禱噢,主啊,願你今天與我們真實地同在——願聖靈同在的極大喜樂彌漫四周。


April 20 Can A Saint Slander God?

 “For all the promises of God in Him are yea, and in Him Amen.” 2 Corinthians 1:20

Jesus told the parable of the talents recorded in Matthew 25 as a warning that it is possible for us to misjudge our capacity. This parable has not to do with natural gifts, but with the Pentecostal gift of the Holy Ghost. We must not measure our spiritual capacity by education or by intellect; our capacity in spiritual things is measured by the promises of God. If we get less than God wants us to have, before long we will slander Him as the servant slandered his master: “You expect more than You give me power to do; You demand too much of me, I cannot stand true to You where I am placed.” When it is a question of God’s Almighty Spirit, never say “I can’t.” Never let the limitation of natural ability come in. If we have received the Holy Spirit, God expects the work of the Holy Spirit to be manifested in us.

The servant justified himself in everything he did and condemned his lord on every point – “Your demand is out of all proportion to what you give.” Have we been slandering God by daring to worry when He has said: “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”? Worrying means exactly what this servant implied – “I know You mean to leave me in the lurch.” The person who is lazy naturally is always captious – “I haven’t had a decent chance,” and the one who is lazy spiritually is captious with God. Lazy people always strike out on an independent line.

Never forget that our capacity in spiritual matters is measured by the promises of God. Is God able to fulfil His promises? Our answer depends on whether we have received the Holy Spirit.
