Morning Coffee 8/22/14     Slow Your Roll

“In the same way, you who are younger must accept the authority of the elders. And all of you, dress yourselves in humility as you relate to one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor.  683 more words

贞洁的品行 [Chaste Conduct]

书卷:彼得前书(新约)
作者:彼得

彼得前书3章2节:“这正是因看见你们有贞洁的品行和敬畏的心。”

今日默想:活出基督的信仰,让别人在我们身上看见基督生命荣美的彰显,胜过千言万语。上帝是忌邪的上帝,祂不容许我们的心中另有所爱慕和追求的偶像。任何人、事、物,都不可取代上帝的地位,故此信徒须在敬畏中持守纯洁。没有贞洁的品行,就没有真正的敬畏。若不出于敬畏的心,贞洁的品行是外表的装作,也就不能将人感化过来。
