為著神的驗中和託付而感恩

 

主題經文:帖前21-4

弟兄們,你們自己原曉得我們進到你們那裡並不是徒然的 2 我們從前在腓立比被害受辱,這是你們知道的,然而還是靠我們的神放開膽量,在大爭戰中把神的福音傳給你們 3 我們的勸勉不是出於錯誤,不是出於汙穢,也不是用詭詐 4 但神既然驗中了我們,把福音託付我們,我們就照樣講,不是要討人喜歡,乃是要討那察驗我們心的神喜歡 

 

背誦經文帖前24

但神既然驗中了我們,把福音託付我們,我們就照樣講,不是要討人喜歡,乃是要討那察驗我們心的神喜歡。

Š       我傳福音原沒有可誇的…… 17 我若甘心做這事,就有賞賜;若不甘心,責任卻已經託付我了……23 凡我所行的,都是為福音的緣故,為要與人同得這福音的好處  (林前916-1723)
