DAY 18 WORKERS WITH, NOT FOR ...
What work does God want me to do?

同上帝一起工作,不是为上帝工作

上帝想让我们做什么?

The true nature of God is wonderfully revealed in the life and words of Jesus. He said, "If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also" (John 14:7).

上帝的旨意神奇地反映于耶稣的生活和话语。“如果你了解我了,你也就了解上帝了”(约翰福音 章节 14:7

In almost every other religious form or tradition, the "god" (or "gods") being worshiped is passive and abstract or merely a historical figure. In contrast, Jesus declared that the true God is alive, active and engaged. "My Father has been working until now, and I have been working" (John 5:17). God did not simply create the heavens and earth with an explosive burst of divine energy -- then back off to let creation run itself. He has remained intimately involved, infusing His sustaining power and influence in every location, every situation and every moment (see Colossians 1:17).

跟其他宗教或传说一样,人们崇拜的神是积极的,抽象的和纯粹的历史人物。通过对比,耶稣宣称上帝的活的,积极的,我们可以跟上帝建立关系。“上帝一直在保佑大家,我也一直在救赎大家”(约翰福音 章节 5:17)。上帝不单纯用神奇的力量创造天和地,接着他还创造万物众生。他继续关爱,每时每刻,不分场合,不分地点,不断施加影响和给予力量。(见歌罗西书 章节 1:17

This reality has huge implications for how we live out His purposes. If we miss the intensity of God's direct involvement, our tendency will be either to work independently of Him (secularism) or work for Him, as "little helpers." His concept is neither. It is to work with Him. Dr. Henry Blackaby, author of Experiencing God (an excellent resource!) puts it this way: "God is at work all around us all the time. Our job is to see where He is working and join Him." The Apostle Paul refers to us as "ambassadors" who are "workers together with Him" (2 Corinthians 5:20, 6:1).

受现实巨大影响,我们不按他的旨意生活。如果我们错过上帝的眷顾,我们将成为只顾自我的现实主义者或一个为上帝工作的无助者。这两者都不是他的期望。他要的是我们同他一起工作。亨利·布克比(Henry Blackaby)在《每日经历神》(很好的资料!)这样写道:“上帝每时每刻都在我们周围保佑大家,我们的工作是看他在哪里工作,我们去跟他一起工作”。使徒保罗曾称“那些跟上帝一起工作的人”为“大使”(哥林多后书5:20, 6:1).
