经文: “要归本纛作未队往前行。”(民数记二:31)

以色列行进的队伍,但支派是垫后居末,但这有什么关系?前锋部队或后卫部队一样重要,他们都跟着云柱火柱而行,他们吃一样的吗哪,喝一样磐石出来的水,他们同往迦南地而去。

我的心,振作起来吧!虽然我是末后的,是最小的,然而在同一部队,由同一个元帅率领,也是与有荣焉。在一个队伍总是有人垫后,总是要有人为耶稣做一些细微未节的事,能有机会为主耶稣做些事,不就是光荣?其实,但支派身居要职,前面有人脱队了,他们可以扶他一把,前面有人掉东西,他们可以将其捡起来。

有冒险犯难精神的信徒,可以披荆斩棘,为上帝在福音末到之地,闯出一片天地。但那些较保守,留后看守的的信徒,也可为教会扶持、喂养软弱的羊群,坚定他们对主的信心。所以,每个位置都有它特定的功能与职责,如同身体各按百节,连于元首,配搭合宜,在爱中建立,为成全信徒,造就教会。

垫后的部队,其实蛮危险的,因为敌人很可能从后面偷袭。有经验的基督徒,发现要助那些摇摆不定、不冷不热的信徒,需要格外的劳苦与耐性,但你又不能对他们弃之不顾,总要费心引领他们对主认识更深,教导他们如何靠主喜乐。喔!愿我们今天特别照顾那些软弱、退后的信徒,在奔走天路的道上,扶他们一把。

ure: “They shall go hindmost with their standards.”(Numbers 2:31)

The camp of Dan brought up the rear when the armies of Israel were on the march. The Danites occupied the hindmost place, but what mattered the position, since they were as truly part of the host as were the foremost tribes; they followed the same fiery cloudy pillar, they ate of the same manna, drank of the same spiritual rock, and journeyed to the same inheritance. Come, my heart, cheer up, though last and least; it is thy privilege to be in the army, and to fare as they fare who lead the van. Some one must be hindmost in honour and esteem, some one must do menial work for Jesus, and why should not I? In a poor village, among an ignorant peasantry; or in a back street, among degraded sinners, I will work on, and “go hindmost with my standard.”

The Danites occupied a very useful place. Stragglers have to be picked up upon the march, and lost property has to be gathered from the field. Fiery spirits may dash forward over untrodden paths to learn fresh truth, and win more souls to Jesus; but some of a more conservative spirit may be well engaged in reminding the church of her ancient faith, and restoring her fainting sons. Every position has its duties, and the slowly moving children of God will find their peculiar state one in which they may be eminently a blessing to the whole host.

The rear guard is a place of danger. There are foes behind us as well as before us. Attacks may come from any quarter. We read that Amalek fell upon Israel, and slew some of the hindmost of them. The experienced Christian will find much work for his weapons in aiding those poor doubting, desponding, wavering, souls, who are hindmost in faith, knowledge, and joy. These must not be left unaided, and therefore be it the business of well-taught saints to bear their standards among the hindmost. My soul, do thou tenderly watch to help the hindmost this day.返回搜狐,查看更多
