《生于忧患,死于安乐》

经文: “人在幼年负轭,这原是好的。”(耶利米哀歌三∶27)

       

这经文也像是个应许,这真理是颠扑不破的──生于忧患,死于安乐。

       

在年少时,我须体会到觉悟悔改后,所带来的冲击和影响,而此后也证明,这的确对我灵魂有益。若我未曾经历过救恩的宝贵与人心的满足,我又怎能深爱这福音,并乐于向人传讲?惟有在苦难中认识主的,才能在主的恩典上越发刚强,成为一个坚强的信徒。

       

遭人攻讦是很受伤的感觉,但这是预备承受将来的荣耀,因为一个人若备受关怀与宠爱,未曾听过一句重话,他怎能当领袖?因为在上位者难免会被人指责挨骂!若非经过一番寒冷澈骨的淬炼,很难禁得起高处不胜寒的考验。

       

当然,我们无需主动追求劳其筋骨,饿其体肤,空乏其身的经验,但主若允许我们在年少时,有苦其心志,行拂乱其所为的经验,实在是要砥砺我们的品格,磨练我们的个性,以便将来服事教会,荣耀上帝。

       

来吧,让我们低头负轭,为了耶稣的缘故,快乐地接受上帝所量给我的考验吧!

Sufferers Make Strong Believers

Scripture: "It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth"(Lamentations 3:27).

       

This is as good as a promise. It has been good, it is good, and it will be good for me to bear the yoke.

       

Early in life I had to feel the weight of conviction, and ever since it has proved a soul-enriching burden. Should I have loved the gospel so well had I not learned by deep experience the need of salvation by grace? Jabez was more honorable than his brethren because his mother bare him with sorrow, and those who suffer much in being born unto God make strong believers in sovereign grace.

       

The yoke of censure is an irksome one, but it prepares a man for future honor. He is not fit to be a leader who has not run the gauntlet of contempt. Praise intoxicates if it be not preceded by abuse. Men who rise to eminence without struggle usually fall into dishonor.

       

The yoke of affliction, disappointment, and excessive labor is by no means to be sought for; but when the LORD lays it on us in our youth, it frequently develops a character which glorifies God and blesses the church.

       

Come, my soul, bow thy neck; take up thy cross. It was good for thee when young; it will not harm thee now. For Jesus" sake, shoulder it carefully.
