“在指望中要喜乐,在患难中要忍耐,祷告要恒切。”

(羅马书12:12)

 “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” (Romans 12:12)

“但愿使人有盼望的神,因信将诸般的喜乐、平安充满你们的心,使你们藉着圣灵的能力大有盼望。”(羅马书15:13)

 “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13)

默想祷告:过去几星期中接到很多弟兄姊妹经历各种磨难的消息, 其中有火災, 癌腫瘤切除, 冰地上跌伤, 失业, 移民申请受挫, 失去摯親, 和我自已突发痉挛的事故。但奇妙的是, 竟然沒有聽到一个人怨声载道, 反而不断接到感恩赞美的见证。不信的朋友以为基督徒是阿Q, 陷入自欺欺人的想法。不錯, 我们也喜爱顺境、健康、幸福、快乐这些的境遇; 但也深深领会这些都不过是短暂的, 祗会在人的肉身与情感上産生一刻的刺激和快感, 过后又感觉不外如是。然而信耶稣的人, 因有圣灵的內住同在, 認识神的真理以后, 心中就産生出一种说不出來的稳妥、篤定和喜乐, 即便遇到驚惶, 黑暗, 挫折的时候仍然可站立得住, 不会因现实生活的影响而上下波动。耶利米书15:16说: “你的言语是我心中的欢喜快乐,因为我是称为你名下的人。” 但愿我们都以神为乐, 因为祂才是我们真正喜乐的泉源, 奉主耶稣圣名祈求, 阿们。(陈炽弟兄分享)

Meditation & Prayer:In previous few weeks, I have received prayer requests of many precarious situations, including fire in the house, tumor removal, slip on ice injury, layoff, denial of immigration status, loss of beloved relatives, and my own seizure incident. Incredibly, I did not hear any cringing sound of fear or distraught. Instead, all I received was words of thanksgiving & insightful testimonies, as though we are untouched and unscathed by all these harms. Non-believers always think that Christians are somehow practicing delusional or self-deceptive thoughts. Yet we know, by the powerful of the Holy Spirit that dwells in us, we can fight off fear, darkness and unbearable hardships. Prophet Jeremiah said: “When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear your name, LORD God Almighty.” (Jeremiah 15:16) For Christians find joy in the word of God, knowing the real difference between “Happiness” & “Joy”; one that is temporary and vanishes when shaken by worldly mishaps, while the other is eternal and supported by the Promise of God.  May we all have joy in our hearts always, in Jesus precious we pray, amen.
