<學習小孩的樣式>3/25-4/1/13

「耶穌便叫一個小孩子來,使他站在他們當中,我實在告訴你們,你們若不回轉,變成小孩子的樣式,斷不得進天國。」(馬太福音18:3)

And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:3)

默想禱告:小舅一月中旬決志信主,兩個月後磨難又再接踵而至。「誰說信耶穌就肯定會得福?」我猜想他心中也許很容易會產生這種疑惑。年初腸癌割除手術成功,五週內恢復正常飲食,整家人都鬆了一大口氣。怎知這回來電,他卻向我們重述另一波的歷險:「我兩週前腹部突然劇烈脹痛,受不了去看急診,醫生發現大腸停止蠕動,消化後的食物卡住了好幾天,並且結硬。醫生馬上要我留院,當天插鼻管到胃腸想把廢物吸出來,但沒有成功,接著說若不好轉就得開刀。」我們邊聽邊咬著唇,為他緊張捏汗。「住院第四天醫生說不能再等,約好下午在手術室見面。我那時心情很惶恐,一切沒把握,但就在那時刻我記得你們曾經教我禱告,於是我閉上眼,作了一個簡單的祈求:「天上的父啊,求你現在幫助我,救我脫離這個險境吧!」「你又忘了說奉耶穌的名禱告,阿們這句結束語。」做姐姐的忍不住插口。小舅卻不急不忙的繼續說:「禱告完我想先洗個澡才去做手術,當時水很冷,洗完剛出浴室身體馬上發抖,一連打了四個大噴嚏,驚動了護士,她馬上朝我衝過來。很奇怪,那時我用手輕輕按了一下小腹,突然感覺整個部位的肌肉開始牽動,接著放了幾個大屁,身體就竟然鬆馳下來了!」他在電話中看不見我的神情,其實我對這段近乎戲劇化的生動敘述反應強烈,真想從坐椅中跳起來。「我趕快去排便,完了全身舒暢。醫生驚聞報告,趕來檢查,隨後說可以免除開刀,但要我住院多两天觀察病情。上週末我终於回家了!」他語氣激昂,帶著莫明的喜悅。「主耶穌真是顧念你,雖然你剛信主,還不大明白聖經內容,神的憐憫和慈愛依然臨到你身上,垂聽你的呼求。」妻子話中充滿了感恩的激動。「姐,你知道我是個單纯的人,不喜歡太複雜的道理規條,只會用幾句話真誠地向上帝陳明我的需要就是了。」掛斷電話後,這齣活動畫面在我腦中久久不散。啊!我太嚮往這種稚童般的禱告語言,我太缺乏孩子跌倒受傷後向父親哭訴求助的真情流露!我發現自己的禱告越來越理性,越來越機械化,喜歡拋書包,像背台辭,像在演講,有時候一邊禱告,另一邊卻想著其他烦雜的事務。天理人情,當人與人之間的關係越親切就自然能向對方傾心吐意,不再拘泥說話的形式。我想天父喜悅我與祂建立這種親暱的關係,喜歡聆聽我在密室中嗦嗦的絮語,還有那說不完的俏俏話, 讓我向傾訴內心難以排解的憂悶, 對生命中每個片段所不能预测的擔待。求主幫助, 使我在關係上重新學習小孩的樣式,心智上卻追求心靈卓越,更明白祂的心意,奉主耶穌聖名禱告, 阿們。(陳熾弟兄分享)

Meditation & Prayer: We were quite intense as Alex described another episode of his harrowing experience in the aftermath of his colon cancer surgery. “I went to the emergency room again after I felt a great dull pain and severely bloated sensation in the surgical area. Doctors found that my lower intestines were not moving this time. They immediately inserted a tube through my nose and attempted to suck out the waste, but couldn’t do it because the digested food was already hardened. They kept me in the hospital and warned that if the condition is not reversed, surgery to remove the waste becomes necessary.” Our lips tightened and hands shivered as we listened. “While preparing for surgery, I felt helpless and began to say a simple prayer: “Heavenly Father, please help me to avoid another surgery!” “You probably forgot to say in Jesus name I pray, amen, right?” Sarah interjected before he finished. Alex simply resumed his monologue without response: “I wanted to take a shower before surgery. The water was cold. I was still very much freezing after getting dressed and had 4 huge sneezes one after another. But something happened amazingly as my hand caressed down my lower abdomen. Suddenly I felt things were moving, followed by the prolonged sound of passing gas. Moments later I went to the bathroom and came out all relieved. The doctor and nurse were both shocked. He decided to terminate the surgery procedures, but kept me there for 2 more days to make sure bowel movement continued. I was finally discharged last weekend!” His tone of voice filled with elation. “God truly heard your prayer as a newly reborn Christian!” Sarah said with a thanksgiving heart. Alex calmly responded: “Sis, I am a simple man, don’t like complicated theory of theology. I just wanted to sincerely pray for God’s intervention, that’s all. And he answers my prayer.” Alex’s statement continues to linger in my mind for quite a while after his vivid portrayal of this dramatic incident. How much I would like to experience the intimate nature of prayer to Christ as a child without pretentiousness which watered down to some mechanical and ritualistic utterances. I feel my prayer life appears to be quite stagnant, stretched out to become a dialogue with God by reason rather than by heart. Sometimes I don’t have the simple intention of pouring out my inner feelings toward him- feelings of vulnerability, self-doubt, worries and uncertainties. Lacking the lovely characteristics in a child – the humility to rely and to depend, the display of innocence, simplicity, frankness, obedience, etc., I feel like speaking to a stranger than to my heavenly father. It is only when the child grows up and gets involved in a competitive, complicated world that his instinctive humility is left behind. I am mindful of Jesus’ mandate to demand my childlike relationship with him, but to allow me to pursue spiritual excellence and maturity to understand his perfect will in my life, in Jesus name I pray, amen. (Brother Mike Chan sharing)

  • 生命季刊發訊:

 

我們前些天參加了華府維護傳統婚姻遊行,在媒體上幾乎沒有報導,因為整個媒體現在都是不公正的

 

326日的维护传统婚姻的游行,多数媒体一如往常,在报导中有明显的偏颇。们几乎不提当天有维护传统婚姻的游行及游行的人数,却大肆采访及报导支持同性婚姻一方的活动。 因此,我們自己寫了文章、製作Video盼望通過我們自己的網絡來推動宣傳,使我們的會眾知道如何面對同性婚姻合法化的挑戰您也可以網上轉發
