灵光一击

自从从事保险的工作以来,就几乎没有好好地坐下来灵修。有的时候可以推说没有时间,但更多的时候是心静不下来。现在放缓了脚步,我好好灵修。心里也晓得在耶稣里的日子如何,力量也如何。

翻开《活泼的生命》读今天的经文,是熟悉的马太福音4:1-11.
许多老师在教导这段经文的时候都会提醒我们,要靠着神话语就能战胜诱惑。因此我们应该多读经、默想经文,甚至背经。是的,信心要有方向,而神的方向已经写在经文里。

然而,我懂得经文不少,魔鬼也懂,也知道如何引用经文。在我的生命中,我有很多时候在犯罪的同时神的话语也浮现在我脑海,可以我还是犯罪了。为什么?

灵光一击,再读一读耶稣在这段经文所说的话,“乃是靠神口里… …”、“不可试探主你的神”、“当拜主你的神,单要事奉祂”。
靠着神的话固然重要,更重要的是我们的心。心要向着神,否则能把圣经倒背如流也是枉然。耶稣固然引用经文回应撒旦,但耶稣的心更是紧紧地向着神、凡事从神的旨意去想,才不为撒旦所胜。

我的心,什么时候为自己着想多过于从神的角度出发?
我不否认经常在情感生背叛上帝,在工作上经常怀疑上帝是否会及时供应,滥用所丰富赐下的恩赐和恩典。我对自己无法把握自己的心而感到懊恼伤痛,什么时候我才能贴近神的心意呢?

The Greatest Insurance Program

What is the greatest insurance program?

  • WHOLE LIFE
  • CHEAP BUT FREE IS ALWAYS THE BEST
  • HIGHEST COVERAGE/SUM ASSURED

“If you ever find any insurance company would offer this kind of program, please remember to contact me! ” But sad to say, no company on earth could afford this kind of program.

But there is one from His kingdom… …

As an life assured, this program would pay out the highest sum assured that no one could afford (even Bill Gates) for your whole life (in fact, is eternal life).

Yes, you know what I want to talk about. The name of the policy  is Jesus Christ’s Salvation.

The Bible told us, “The wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). Even I do not quote from the Bible, everyone knew that we are simply hopeless to solve “the problem of death”. No matter how good we are, we are always not good enough to go to Heaven. “Who am I??? Heaven is God’s home, God’s Kingdom… … How good should I achieve so that I could live with Him??”

No one could enter your house unless you open the door for them. It is same in God’s family. He opens His door by sending Jesus Christ to our world, getting Him to be the one paying the price of sin. Therefore, we could enter His Kingdom, having eternal life… …

Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross, pay off the highest price in lump sum so that we all could enjoy the widest coverage (Death/ Disability/ Illnesses, and also your life, your family, your career and etc etc). Whatever He owns is always ready for you as well. The policy is ready, and there is no expiry date. We all are eligible to enjoy it eternally.

Frens, the best part of this program is YOU DO NOT NEED TO PAY A SINGLE CENT. For Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me (Revelation 3:20)”

What you need to do is accept the offer letter from Jesus Christ, having Him to be your personal Savior and Lord.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

误会

这只是一场误会… …

上帝,我的心纠得紧紧。是因为我在乎的事越来越多么?开始不断去揣测人的心意,直到后来连自己的心也把握不住。
我想过要停止猜测,想问个究竟。但是,这也不是个好办法。仿佛问题一抛出来,就没有回转的余地。这是很愚笨的左右为难,我知道。但不是没有原因的,因为曾经有人对我说,“你误会了… …” 结果,我必须用一辈子的时间去忘记那场误会。

这样的误会,一辈子一次就够了。于是,

我开始催眠自己,“那是荷尔蒙作祟;那也可能是彼此对朋友的期待不一样;可能是我想太多… …”

我继续催眠自己,“我的心意你已经知道了。不表态,是最好的拒绝方式。”

越是催眠,心越是难受。上帝,请你帮助我。我不是个不听话的小孩,只是迷路了。生命中的一切空缺,求耶稣基督用自己来取代。你会帮助我长大,按奈自己不去追根究底,学习用时间来认识答案,和自己。

 

“寻找就寻见”

This is a message for you as well as me. We may feel scare and have no idea to make our plans to work out. However, we shall learn to believe His plan will surely work out for us (indeed, is every details in our lives) and His plan is much greater than what we asked for.

Commit our worries to Him in prayers and let’s see what good things will happen for us.    (=

郑秀文《结果》

 

 

作曲: 王菀之 填詞: 王菀之

但願別人沒看我 極力在逃避過錯
不敢想來日那結果
除非一張開眼錯事沒有發生過
奇蹟不可洗脫我 我是有錯

不肯走前路更遠 心中屈結誰為我心軟
唯緊握雙手來被你看穿
你有否想拋棄我這沒用懶理的寶貝
若你真出手相救只怕你他朝後悔

誰能漫天風雪學抬頭 越過最崎嶇山丘
沿路鼻酸可否伸手牽你手
如若學謙卑再學回頭 是你說我可得救
可我相信未必可白頭

不肯走前路更遠 心中屈結誰為我心軟
唯緊握雙手來被你看穿
試過出走心魔叫一刻侵佔我心窩
受不起種種試探我疏忽於結果

誰能漫天風雪學抬頭 面向最崎嶇山丘
沿路鼻酸可否伸手牽你手
如若學謙卑再學回頭 是你說我可得救
可我相信未必可 白頭

前路直通天國別回頭 越過最崎嶇山丘
這天願將身心交托於你手
誰曾在伊甸裡面迷途 在這天十指緊扣
心意歸向你服從愛你就有歸家的福氣
等到審判那珍貴日期

望著別人在嘆氣 聽到天使頌讚美

Abt Prayers

在FB上看见朋友po这首歌:

真的是很有趣味的一首歌,我很喜欢。

上帝是圣洁的,圣经的教导是正确的;但是我作为一般的基督徒,若遇上这种遭遇的时候也会一样狠毒的祷告。很多人以为基督徒就应该一副圣洁、大爱,事事宽恕他人的样子,就像Mother Teresa一样。就连基督徒也以为自己应该这个样子。

这是理想的样式,是神放在我们前头的目标。这因为我有这样的报复想法,我知道我自己是个罪人。正因为我是个罪人,所以我需要基督。把一切的愤怒、怨恨放在祷告后,神就会在你的心动工。

就像圣经里大卫的诗篇,他也一样咒诅他的敌人。可是神还是称大卫为“最合神心意的人”。关键,不是你圣洁与否,而是你所信靠的对象是信实公义的神。

也许,就像MTV的结局一样。你起初最在乎、最不想失去的,在这一切愤怒的祷告后通通都归于“无有”了。
