9月19日 竭誠為主

919 你繼續與主同行嗎?

我在磨煉之中,常和我同在的就是你們。(路二十二28

我們受試探的時候,主耶穌與我們同在,這是不錯的。可是,他受試探時我們與他同行嗎?不少人一經驗到主為我們成就什麼之後,就不再與他往前行了。注意神把你的環境轉移,看你是否仍與主耶穌同行,還是與世界為友,隨從肉體與魔鬼。我們佩戴著他的徽號,可是有沒有與他同行?“從此他門徒中多有退去的,不再和他同行。”耶穌在一生中不斷受到試探;那麼,神兒子在我們裡面的生命,也會不斷受試探。我們現在的生活是否與耶穌同行?

我們會有保護自己的念頭,以為應該躲避一些神安排在我們周圍的東西。千萬不可!神所安排的際遇,不管是什麼,我們都必須面對;同時在他的試探裡,要與他不斷同行。那些試探不是對我們而發,乃是對他,對我們裡面神的兒子而發的。耶穌基督的尊榮,系於我們這肉身上,我們是否持守對神兒子的忠貞?

你不斷與主同行嗎?這條路要經過客西馬尼園、城門口,直到營外;這道路孤單寂寞,你不會再看見任何足跡,只剩下一個聲音說:“跟從我。”

祈禱◆主啊,為著這個清晨,我能享有與你相交這個珍貴權利,我讚美你;願你今天在我裡面動工,以致我可以“立志行事……為要成就你的美意”。

19 Do You Continue To Go With Jesus?

Ye are they which have
continued with Me in My temptations.” Luke 22:28

It is true that Jesus Christ is with us in our
temptations, but are we going with Him in His temptations? Many of us cease to
go with Jesus from the moment we have an experience of what He can do. Watch
when God shifts your circumstances, and see whether you are going with Jesus,
or siding with the world, the flesh and the devil. We wear His badge, but are
we going with Him? “From that time many of His disciples went back and walked
no more with Him.”

The temptations of Jesus continued throughout His
earthly life, and they will continue throughout the life of the Son of God in
us. Are we going with Jesus in the life we are living now?

We have the idea that we ought to shield ourselves
from some of the things God brings round us. Never! God engineers circumstances
and whatever they may be like we have to see that we face them while abiding
continually with Him in His temptations. They are His temptations, not
temptations to us, but temptations to the life of the Son of God in us. The
honour of Jesus Christ is at stake in your bodily life. Are you remaining loyal
to the Son of God in the things which beset His life in you?

Do you continue to go with Jesus? The way lies
through Gethsemane, through the city gate, outside the camp; the way lies
alone, and the way lies until there is no trace of a footstep left, only the
voice, “Follow Me.”
