心意更新而变化

<心> 10/10 – 10/16/10

 

“所以弟兄们,我以神的慈悲劝你们,将身体献上,当作活祭,是圣洁的,是神所喜悦的;你们如此事奉乃是理所当然的。

不要效法这个世界,

我凭着所赐我的恩对你们各人说:不要看自己过於所当看的,要照着神所分给各人信心的大小,看得合乎中道“(羅馬書12: 1-3)

 

 

 

Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritualact of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you “ (Romans 12: 1-3)

默想祷告Meditation & Prayer:

以往不感觉自己已经成了一个“老油條” 式的信徒--即外表事事圆滑, 但心思意念卻僵硬退化。每周上教堂, 参加各种聚会不难, 因为十年如一日, 已经形成生活習慣和传统、演变成形式化的信仰。那時聽道再沒有什么新领受, 一切但求安稳, 人事最好不要有更动, 多一事不如少一事, 常常沐浴在神的恩典与愛中有多好。其实我的灵命早已经是一池死水, 激不起一奌浪花。直到患了重病, 在病床想到这段经文的時候, 才真正從心里渴望能张口举手唱诗赞美,渴想知道神在我身上的旨意。原來人往往從挫折磨难中, 才会察验出何为神的善良, 纯全、可喜悦的旨意。“老油條” 信徒的是灵性可能在安逸中已渐渐失喪,在稳妥中昏昏欲睡, 更不要说心意会更新变化。 求主赐我们一颗敏锐的心, 愿意领受祂给我们每个信徒在世上独特的托付, 奉主耶稣圣名祈求, 阿们。

I never thought of myself becoming like a “ Old fried dough” kind of  Christian-- well rounded & diplomatic, yet my intuition was actually degenerating.  I attended weekly church services & other programs for many years as part of the traditions; a formalistic kind of religious life. Sermons were no longer exciting; alas! What I longed for was complacency and status quo, while preferring to submerge myself in the grace & love of God. But in fact my spiritual life had become a cesspool. Until a serious illness struck me, then I began to yearn for singing praises & worship Him, actively seeking what God’s will on me. Now I realize sometimes it takes trial & tribulations to awaken and renew a slumbering soul; and becomes able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Pray that God will grant us a sensitive heart, and be willing to accept our unique role on this earth. In Jesus precious name we pray, amen.
