911 傳道者的彈藥

我是你們的主,你們的夫子,尚且洗你們的腳,你們也當彼此洗腳。(約十三14

把握每天的機會事奉,是不揀選自己的環境,而是在神安排的任何環境下,都為神所用。我們在現有環境下表現的特性,可以代表在任何別的環境下的表現。耶穌所作的,是最卑下的日常工作;這就是說我需要神全部的能力,才能依他的腳蹤作最平常普通的事。我能像他那樣用一條毛巾嗎?毛巾、碗碟、鞋,以及一切日常生活中卑微的事,比別的東西更能反映出我們的本相。最低賤的任務,若要做得完全,就需要我們裡面那位道成肉身的全能主去做。

“我給你們作了榜樣,叫你們照著我向你們所作的去作。”留意神擺在你周圍的人;他要藉此使你認識在他眼中你是怎麼樣的人,你會因此而羞愧。他現在說:“要照我向你所作的,向那個人行。”你會說:“呀!到了海外的禾場,我自然會一一去做了。”這樣的說法,就等於去到戰壕才製造彈藥,結果在製造的當兒,就送命了。

我們要與神行第“二裡路”。有些人在頭十碼就放棄了,因為神要我們行看不見方向的路,我們就說:“我還是等到重大關頭來到時再走。”若你在日常小事上不穩步前進,危機來到時,你什麼也做不來。

祈禱◆“耶和華必作王”;噢,主啊,今天願你統治的能力,為著你的榮耀,在你僕人身上彰顯。


September 11 Missionary Munitions

If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet, ye also ought to wash one another's feet.” John 13:14

Ministering as opportunity surrounds us does not mean selecting our surroundings, it means being very selectly God's in any haphazard surroundings which He engineers for us. The characteristics we manifest in our immediate surroundings are indications of what we will be like in other surroundings.

The things that Jesus did were of the most menial and commonplace order, and this is an indication that it takes all God's power in me to do the most commonplace things in His way. Can I use a towel as He did? Towels and dishes and sandals, all the ordinary sordid things of our lives, reveal more quickly than anything what we are made of. It takes God Almighty Incarnate in us to do the meanest duty as it ought to be done.

I have given you an example that ye should do as I have done to you.” Watch the kind of people God brings around you, and you will be humiliated to find that this is His way of revealing to you the kind of person you have been to Him. Now, He says, exhibit to that one exactly what I have shown to you.

Oh,” you say, “I will do all that when I get out into the foreign field.” To talk in this way is like trying to produce the munitions of war in the trenches – you will be killed while you are doing it.

We have to go the “second mile” with God. Some of us get played out in the first ten yards, because God compels us to go where we cannot see the way, and we say – “I will wait till I get nearer the big crisis.” If we do not do the running steadily in the little ways, we shall do nothing in the crisis.
