神爱世人,甚至将他的独生子赐给他们,叫一切信他的,
不至灭亡,反得永生。(约3:16).

双语灵修丨葛培理布道团:最高的呼召(2019.10.31)

若不撇下一切所有的,就不能作我的门徒。路14:33

Whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple. Luke 14:33

当美标石油公司招聘一个远东区代表时,他们找到一个传教士,并开价年薪1万美元。传教士拒绝了。于是他们加价到年薪2.5万美元,传教士还是拒绝了。他们再次加价到年薪5万美元,传教士再一次拒绝。他们很不理解,问传教士怎么回事。传教士说,你们开的价很好,但是你们的工作实在没有什么意义。上帝已经呼召他做了传教士,其它任何事情也就不值得考虑了。

我们如何为耶稣基督摆上呢?不是每一个基督徒都会被呼召作传教士或者布道家,但是他们都是主的门徒。不管上帝把他们放在哪里,他们都愿意顺服和跟随--学校、家里、厂房、办公室、小区,还是其它地方。他们都愿意受圣灵的引导,结圣灵的果子。他们是基督的大使,无论走到哪里。

When the standard oil company was looking for a representative in the Far East, they approached a missionary and offered him $ 10,000. He turned down the offer. They raised it t $ 25,000, and he turned it down again. They raised it to $ 50,000, and he rejected it once more.

“What’s wrong?” they asked. He replied, “Your price is all right, but your job is too small.” God had called him to be a missionary, and anything else was not worthy of his consideration.

What should we be for Jesus Christ? Most Christians are not called to be missionaries or preachers, but they are called to follow Christ. They are called to be faithful wherever He puts them-in the school, in the home, in the factory or offices, in the neighborhood and nation. They are called to be controlled by the Spirit and to bear the fruit of the Spirit. They are called to be Christ’s ambassadors wherever God puts them.

Nothing less than God’s call is worthy of our consideration.
