The Calling of Samson 【参孙的呼召】

Everyone has a calling in the Body of Christ to serve His divine purpose to glorify His name. We can never understand how God works or the ways that He chooses an earthy vessel to work with as the Lord declares in Isaiah 55:8-9, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

Daniel 4:35, “All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as He pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back his hand or say to him: “What have you done?”

Fred Smith wrote:- “Samson had no wisdom, no maturity, no relationships of any value. We usually equate consecration with spiritual maturity, piety, godliness, our goal being to be more Christlike. Samson lacked all these qualities. Perhaps he was raised up in the same way as Pharaoh-to display God’s power and then be destroyed.

Samson was impulsive, spoilt, demanding, arrogant, and lacking in judgment. He showed no hint of kindness or love nor displayed any evidence of a life stirred by the Spirit. He was actually cruel and vindictive, incapable of discernment and immune to advice.”

Yet, Samson was consecrated for God’s use to defeat an enemy and bring down an entire government. His epitaph read, “He killed many more when he died than while he lived.” Isn’t that what he was set apart to do?”

Once you are aware of your calling and who you are in Christ, you won’t be critical or judgmental about the calling of others just because they don’t serve the Lord the way you are called to do so.

在基督的肢体内,每个人都有神指定的呼召去完成神神圣旨意,以荣耀祂的名。我们永远无法完全理解上帝的作为,也无法完全明白祂与祂所拣选的器皿如何来一起同工的方式,如主在以赛亚书558-9提到,我的意念非同你们的意念,我的道路非同你们的道路。 天怎样高过地,照样,我的道路高过你们的道路,我的意念高过你们的意


弗雷德·史密斯(Fred Smith)写道:"残孙没智慧,不成熟,没有任何有价值的关系。我们通常把奉献(分别为圣)等同于灵性成熟、虔诚、圣洁,我们的目标是更像基督。参孙缺乏所有这些品质。也许他被兴起的方式与法老一样,以显示神的大能,然后被摧毁。
