God will not take second place even to His service!

    You know, we get too busy sometimes. We get so busy SERVING Him we forget to LOVE Him. This is the greatest temptation of workers for the Lord, the greatest danger!–For if you neglect your fellowship with the King of kings because you’re so busy with the affairs of the Kingdom, it can be disastrous to your spiritual life & communion with the Lord!

      However sincere & faithful you are to His work, you must put HIM first!–Not the work, nor even others. JESUS must come first! He doesn’t fit second place & He won’t take it! “For I the Lord will have no other gods before Me!” (Deu.5:7,9) That is probably the greatest mistake of sincere Christians: To make a god of God’s service.

                Your service is nothing if you don’t give the King your attention, your love, your time, your communion. He desires your love & for you to love Him first of all & above all. You cannot do the Master’s work without the Master’s power & guidance!–And to get it, you must spend TIME with the Master! So help us, Lord, never to forget that the FIRST place is for YOU, & that we must drink of Thee & Thy Spirit if we’re going to have enough not only for ourselves, but also to overflow upon others!

上帝不会接受被放在第二位,甚至连对他的服务工作被放在首位也不行!

你知道,我们有时候会变得过于忙碌。我们忙于事奉他,甚至我们忘记了去爱他。对于为主工作的人来说,这是最大的诱惑,最大的危险!因为你若是因忙于从事“王国”的事务,而忽略了你与“万王之王”的联谊,那么这就可能会对你的灵性生活、及你与上主之间的情谊造成重大的伤害!

无论你对他的工作有多诚恳,多忠信,你一定要把他放在首位,而不是他的工作,更不是别人。耶稣一定要占据首位才行!他不适合被放在第二位,而他也不会接受被放在第二位的!“因我是主——你的上帝;我绝不容忍有别的神在我之前!”(申5:7,9)真诚的基督徒所犯的最大错误大概也就是这一点,那就是把上帝的服务工作造成一个神。

你若不你的注意、你的爱、你的时间、你的情谊献给王的话,你对他的事奉就是毫无价值的。他想要你的爱,要你去爱他甚于爱其他一切。没有“主人”的力量及指引,你就做不成“主人”的工作!而为了要得到他的力量和指引,你就必须花时间跟“主人”在一起!因此,主啊,请帮助我们永不要忘记将首位留给您,我们一定要先饮用您和您的灵,才够我们自己用,同时也满溢到他人身上!
