玛拉基书1:6-9;罗马书12:1-2
全心全意的敬拜
“我既为父亲,尊敬我的在哪里呢?”玛1:6

安舒的生活往往会令人骄傲自满,当教会遭受逼迫和威胁时,往往大家的信心增长、信主的人数增多;但当信徒生活安稳,对信仰的态度往往又变得不冷不热。在北美,大多数人自称很属灵,却只有少数人是教会会员,而持守信仰的人就更少了。

以色列变得骄傲自满,在回到应许之地经过一个世代后,以色列又故态复萌。尽管城市已经修复,圣殿也已重建,但以色列人的心再次刚硬起来。他们满足于进行各样宗教活动,将不洁和有病的牲畜献上祭坛,这些礼物送给权贵人士都会被嫌弃,更何况献给神了!

以色列骄傲自满,因为他们忘却了神的性格。他们以为圣洁的神会满足于他们三心二意敷衍的敬拜,于是玛拉基告诫百姓,神不喜悦不冷不热的敬拜和不完全的献祭。

我们该庆幸有一位祭司愿意代我们献上完全的祭牲!耶稣献上自己作为那完全、无瑕无疵的祭物,为我们付上罪的赎价。故此,我们将自己献给祂,作为感恩的祭。你当如何献上自己的生命,以答谢神所成就的事?

祷告

父啊,当我们对祢不冷不热时,求祢赦免我们。求祢燃点我们火热的心,叫我们全心全人事奉祢!奉耶稣的名祷告,阿们。

Malachi 1:6-9; Romans 12:1-2 玛拉基书1:6-9;罗马书12:1-2
wholehearted worship 全心全意的敬拜
"If I am a father, where is the honor due me?" —Malachi 1:6 “我既为父亲,尊敬我的在哪里呢?”玛1:6

Comfort often breeds complacency. When the church is persecuted and threatened, it often grows in strength and number. But when believers are safe and secure, the result is often lukewarm Christianity. In North America, a majority of people claim to be spiritual. But a shrinking number of people are connected with a church, and fewer hold to their convictions.

Israel had become complacent. A generation after returning to the promised land, Israel had fallen into old habits. Their cities had been repaired and the temple rebuilt, but now Israel's hearts were growing hard again. They were satisfied with going through the motions of religion. They brought defiled and diseased animals to the altar—offerings that they would not even consider bringing to human dignitaries!

Israel was complacent because they had lost sight of God's character. They believed that a holy God could be satisfied with half-hearted devotion. Malachi warned the people that God was not pleased with lukewarm devotion and imperfect sacrifices.

Thankfully we have a priest who offers the perfect sacrifice on our behalf! Jesus offers himself as the complete, full sacrifice as payment for our sins. And in response we offer ourselves as offerings of gratitude to him. How are you offering your life in thanks for what God has done?

Prayer 禱告

Father, forgive us when our devotion to you is lukewarm. Kindle a burning desire in our hearts to serve you with every part of our being! Amen.

父啊,当我们对祢不冷不热时,求祢赦免我们。求祢燃点我们火热的心,叫我们全心全人事奉祢!奉耶稣的名祷告,阿们。
