標 題： 當基督下達命令時
經 節： 耶穌就打發兩個門徒，對他們說：「你們進城去……」（馬可福音十四章13節）
Christ Gives a Command
He sent out two of His disciples and said to them, “Go into the city. .
.” (Mark 14:13)
The two disciples were given very detailed
instructions to go to a certain town and look for a particular man performing a
specific task. He would have a large room, furnished and ready to observe the
Passover. These instructions might have seemed unusual had it not been their
Lord speaking, but the two disciples obeyed and found everything just as Jesus
had said. Jesus knew exactly what they would find, and so He guided them
specifically. One of the most memorable and precious times the disciples would
spend with their Teacher hinged on the obedience of these two.
Obedience to Christ’s commands always
brings fulfillment. When the Lord gives you instructions, obey immediately.
Don’t wait until you have figured it all out and everything makes perfect sense
to you. Sometimes God will lead you to do things that you will not fully
understand until after you have done them. He does not usually reveal all the
details of His will when He first speaks to you. Instead, He tells you enough
so you can implement what He has said, but He withholds enough information so
that you must continue to rely upon His guidance. Your response will affect
what God does next in your life. Your obedience may affect how others around
you experience Christ as well. If there is any directive God has given you that
you have not obeyed, obey that word immediately and watch God’s perfect plan
unfold in your life.
