我们真的愿意被神使用吗?

简介:哥尼流信主的经历,除了在第十章详细记述之外,彼得还在第十一章覆述一次

    读经:  
    使徒行传十章1至16节

    哥尼流信主的经历,除了在第十章详细记述之外,彼得还在第十一章覆述一次,然后在第十五章7节又再提及;这件事怎么如此重要,值得一再提及呢?
    至少有两个原因:哥尼流是其中一个最先信主的非犹太人,彼得首先要克服他那种根深蒂固的「民族主义」情意结,才肯把福音传给这些非犹太人。对教会来说,这是一个非常重要的转捩点和里程碑。

    神期望信徒能打破旧有的人际阻隔,让福音得以在非犹太人的圈子传开;然而,当时的信徒却不愿意向同胞以外的人分享福音。不过,我们在批评他们之先,必须抚心自问:我是否愿意听从神的吩咐,神要我做什么,我就做什么呢?我是否愿意向任何人传讲基督呢?即使是那些令我讨厌、使我避之则吉的人也在所不辞?

    神做了一些特别的事情,来引起彼得的关注,使他遵从他的吩咐而行。神让彼得在异象中看见天上缒下一块大布,内中有各种牲畜、野兽、昆虫和飞鸟,目的就是要他明白:在神眼中,人人平等。

    当彼得终于明白神的心意,并且愿意到任何地方及向任何人去传讲福音的时候,他很快便发现,神原来早已预备了一个渴慕救恩的外邦人家庭,他们正等候他去向他们讲解福音。

    只要我们真的愿意被神使用,神就必会使用我们。我们若然立志每天向主祈求:「主啊,求你带领我,让我有机会向人传讲福音,向人分享你在我身上的作为」,你必惊讶地发现,神很快便会垂听你的祷告,把一个像哥尼流那样已预备心志去接受福音的人,带到你的面前。关键是在于,我们要先回答最初那个问题:我们真的愿意被神使用吗?

    祷告:

    主啊,求你让我有机会与人分享福音,同时,又求你指教我懂得如何与人分享。

    ARE WE REALLY WILLING FOR GOD TO USE US?

    Bible Reading:  
    Acts 10: 1 - 16

    This story of the conversion of Cornelius is told twice in the book of Acts and is referred to again in Acts 15:7. Why is it so important?
    There are at least two reasons. This was the first group of converts who were not Jews and Peter had to overcome his own deep feelings of 'racism' before he was willing to preach to these non-Jews. It was an important turning point for the church.

    God wanted to break down old barriers so that the gospel might reach out beyond the Jewish circle. But those who knew the gospel weren't willing to share it with anyone else. Before we criticise them, however, let's answer this question - how willing am I for God to use me in any way he wants to? Am I prepared to speak to anyone about Christ, especially those who seem to me to be unlovely?

    God had to do something unusual to get Peter's attention, to make him willing. The whole message of the sheet full of animals and birds was a lesson to Peter that all the people of the world are equal in God's sight.

    When Peter understood what God was saying and was willing to go anywhere and to anyone with the gospel, then he found a heart and a home prepared by God and waiting for him.

    If we are really willing to be used by the Lord, he will take us at our word. If we are prepared to say each day 'Lord lead some soul to me today and help me to speak to that one about you and what you mean to me', we may be surprised how quickly and how often God answers that prayer. You will often find that, like Cornelius, God has prepared their hearts for what you have to say. Let's go back to our first question - Are we really willing for God to use us?

    A PRAYER FOR TODAY:

    'Lead me to some soul today, Oh teach me, Lord, just what to say.'
