继续传扬福音
Continue to preach the gospel

Acts 14:4-7

城里众人就分裂了,有的附从犹太人,也有的附从使徒。 当时,外族人、犹太人,和他们的首领,蠢蠢欲动,想要侮辱使徒,用石头打他们。 两人知道了,就逃往吕高尼的路司得和特庇两城,以及周围的地方, 在那里传福音。

The people of the city were divided; some sided with the Jews, others with the apostles.  There was a plot afoot among both Gentiles and Jews, together with their leaders, to mistreat them and stone them. But they found out about it and fled to the Lycaonian cities of Lystra and Derbe and to the surrounding country,  where they continued to preach the gospel.

重点学习

人们分裂,彼此敌对实在是一个令人难受的光景,然而在恶中的联合却会使得我们与世界和好,但是却促使我们与上帝隔离;在那样的光景中的时候,若是有一小撮人宁可与其他人分离无数次,只为了要转回讨上帝的喜悦的话,那却是好的无比的。

当基督的仆人们不选择只是一头栽在他们平日的工作中的时候,才是一种敬畏上帝正确的方式;这种敬畏并不会拦阻他们听见上帝呼召时选择顺服上帝,以至于他们能够承担那些甚至要面对死亡的托付。

Lessons Learn

It is wretched to see people divided against each other, but it is evil unity that gives us peace with the world but separates us all from God; it would be better for a few to depart from everyone else a hundred times if they then return to God’s favor.

This is the right kind of fear, when Christ’s servants do not choose to run into the hands of their duty. Fear does not stop them from obeying God when he calls, and so they can afford, if need be, to go through death itself to do their duty.
