软弱的要说:‘我是勇士。’ Message on Ephesians 6:10 for Mandarin speakers. (English version is  below the Mandarin)

Ephesians-6-10

要經常記住:我們的力量不是從自己來的,而是從神來的。

只要堅定地信靠神,就可以使我們在風雨中站穩。神是信心的來源。 信心可以放在除了耶穌基督之外不同的地方。它可以放在:

人的身上

物質的東西上

投資上

機構

我們的成就上

(這些只是例子,不是一個很詳盡的清單。)

問題是:你會把你的力量放在那裡?

如果是放在耶穌基督以外的任何事物或地方上,你會發現你只是把你自己放在一個不受歡迎的驚喜上面。

保羅在以弗所书六章十節十分清楚地提到:‘… 要靠主的大能大力…’。在腓立比书四章十三節也有講到,當你靠着神加给你的能力,凡事都能作。另外,在提摩太后书二章一節也說:‘应当在基督耶稣的恩典里刚强起来’。有多少次,我們從神給予的恩典走向我們自己的努力。上帝給我們自由和毫不費力。

神的力量是很強大的。無法跟人類的力量作比較,因為我們會因軟弱而失敗。

今天,我祈求,你可以謹守保羅的話語,並從中得到力量。Amen

ENGLISH:

Let the weak say they are strong:
Always remember, your strength is not in yourself, but in the Lord.

Faith that is firmly placed on God will stand strong through the storm. He is the author of faith. The fact is that unawares, faith can be placed in places, other than The Lord Jesus Christ. It can be placed in:

➡️ In people
➡️ In Material things
➡️ In Investments
➡️ Institutions
➡️ Achievements
( these are just examples, this list is not exhaustive ).

The question is: where does your strength lay?

If it is in any thing, or anywhere, other than The Lord Jesus Christ, you are setting yourself up for an unwelcome surprise.

Paul’s words in Eph. 6:10 boldly and clearly tell us to: “…be strong in The Lord…” and gladly so. Phil. 4:13 says, you “can do all things through Christ” who strengthens you.” 2 Tim. 2:1 declares, “be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.” How many times do we walk away from God’s grace to our own self- efforts. God gives freely and effortlessly.

The power of Christ is mighty. It cannot be compared to any human strength, which fails in its infirmities and weaknesses.

I pray today, you will hold fast to Paul’s words and be STRENGTHENED.
