“一个人不能事奉两个主;不是恶这个、爱那个,就是重这个、轻那个。你们不能又事奉 神,又事奉玛门 。”

马太福音 6:24

"No one can serve two masters; for a slave will either hate the one and love the other, or be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth. 

Matthew 6:24

你的主是谁?我们必须作出选择。如果我们顺从罪,罪就成为我们的主。我们就是罪的奴仆(罗6:17)。但是我们归在基督的门下,罪必不能作我们的主(罗6:14),基督才是真正的主。地上有两个世界(这个和那个),一个由魔鬼控制,一个由基督控制。我们必须选择一个。我们身处这个世界,但不属于这个世界。我们必须有所不同,我们要被嘲笑、打击、讽刺。无论在家中、学习、还是工作,我们都要仰望十字架,愿意为主背起十字架。我们要让世人知道,我们是属基督的。

我们基督徒的人生方向和别人不同,这个世界在追逐自己的方向,喜欢不义。我们截然相反,我们直奔天国。所以,基督徒要每日祷告、每日读经。神给每个人选择的自由,你渴慕神,期待变化,愿意重生,神就跟你说话。你回应他,他就改变你的生命。决志跟随基督,你也要付出代价。因为你整个生命必须改变。你要悔改,要告别过去,要重新开始。神希望我们每一个人立刻作决定。圣经说,“你们心持两意要到几时呢?”(王上18:21)拖延只能让决定更难。不决定也是一种决定,如果你打算以后再说,你就是在回避神。“屡次受责罚,仍然硬着颈项,他必顷刻败坏,无法可治。”(箴29:1)圣经中没有写道:明天再说吧。“现在正是拯救的日子。”(林后6:2)你现在就作决定跟随他。在主里不断成长,作他喜悦的门徒。

Who is your master? We have to make a choice.When sin gives an order and we follow it, sin becomes the master of our lives. We become its slave. Jesus said, “You are slaves of sin” (Romans 6:17). When we come to Christ the Scripture says, “Sin shall not have dominion over you” (Roman 6:14). Sin is no longer the master. Christ is.Right here on this earth there are two worlds: a world dominated by evil and a world dominated by Christ. We have to choose between them. We have to live in this world, but we are not to be part of it. We have to be willing to be different. We have to be willing to be laughed at, sneered at, made fun of. We have to be willing to go to the Cross and take a stand for Christ where we live, where we work, where we study. Everyone must know that we are of Christ.

Those of us who know Christ march to a different drumbeat. You see, most of the world goes in one direction, but the followers of Christ go the other way, marching to the drumbeat of heaven against the flood of evil. That’s the reason it’s so important for a follower of Jesus Christ to pray daily, to study the Scriptures daily.God gives people the freedom to choose. If you sense a longing for God, a desire to change and be a new person, that’s God speaking to your heart. And when you respond to Him, God will change you.When you make that choice for Christ, you pay a price. It means that your whole life must change. You must repent, and repentance means to turn around, to change your way of living. That is what’s involved in coming to Christ.God demands an immediate decision from each one of us. He says, “How long will you halt between two opinions?” (1 Kings 18:21). Delay makes the right decision harder. Indecision itself is a choice. If you decide that you are going to wait until some other time, that is a choice away from God. The Bible says, “He that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy” (Proverbs 29:1). Nowhere in the Bible does it say, “Tomorrow.” The Bible says, “Now is the accepted time” (2 Corinthians 6:2). Make a choice for Christ now. Grow to maturity in Him, be His disciple.
