为有杈柄的祷告

<为有杈柄的祷告> 10/17 -10/24/10

 

“你们为主的缘故,要顺服人的一切制度,或是在上的君王… 务要尊敬众人,亲爱教中的弟兄,敬畏神,尊敬君王。” (彼前2:13-17)

Submit yourselves for the Lord's sake to every authority instituted among men: whether to the king, as the supreme authority, or to governors… Show proper respect to everyone: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the king.” (1 Peter 2:13-17)

“在上有权柄的,人人当顺服他,因为没有权柄不是出於神的。凡掌权的都是神所命的。” (羅马书 13:1)

“Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.” (Romans 13:1)

 

默想祷告Meditation & Prayer: 生活在高度民主的美国, 而不履行公民投票選举的杈利与义務, 是不可思议的事(当然沒有美国国籍是例外)。基督徒顺服在上有杈柄的, 往者是君王, 现今是政府是必然的;但最难能可贵的是在美国, 我们仍然擁有绝对的自由, 投票選出執政掌杈的人, 就是那些代表我们的利益和價值观念的国家官员。对比之下, 那剛剛獲得诺貝尔和平奖卻仍身陷囹圄, 无法出席领奬的得奖人是何等大的諷刺, 何等令人感到惋惜。我前天终于在投票站尽了公民的责任, 內心立時感到无限暢快。看到美国国势日渐衰微, 但最少在投票杈利上国民仍然坚守城池, 保住了这条底線。求主带领每个信徒都愿意成为一个守望者, 发挥出作光作盬的社会功能, 奉主耶稣圣名祈求, 阿们。(陈炽弟兄分享)

It is incredible that living in a country that espouses the principles of democracy, yet its citizens are indifferent to exercise their voting rights. (Except those who are not born or naturalized U.S. Citizens) A Christian must submit himself to the governing authorities; to the kings in the past and government entities in current time. But amazingly, we live in a country that actually grants us the right/freedom to choose whoever we think that would represent our interests and values. In contrast, it is quite ironic for someone who just received the Nobel Peace Prize, while being incarcerated and is unable to claim his honor. Few days ago, I finally casted my vote for the November Election and immediately felt the unspeakable elation. Despite observing the rapid U.S. social/political decline, we are still protected by the Constitution of our inalienable right. Pray that as a follower of Christ, we will assume our role as a watchman, and to perform our functions as salt & light of this world, in Jesus precious name, amen. (Brother Mike Chan’s sharing)
