<更美的家乡>4/11- 4/17/11

「他 们 却 羡 慕 一 个 更 美 的 家 乡 , 就 是 在 天 上 的 。 所 以 神 被 称 为 他 们 的 神 , 并 不 以 为 耻 , 因 为 他 已 经 给 他 们 预 备 了 一 座 城 。」(希伯來書11:16)

Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them. (Hebrew 11:16)

「你们必须忍耐,使你们行完了神的旨意,就可以得着所应许的。因为还有一点点时候,那要来的就来,并不迟延。」(希伯來書10:36-37)

You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For, “In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.”(Hebrew 10:36-37)

默想祷告:上周美国政府因财政预算问题差奌关闭, 反映出美国社会百孔千瘡, 若处理失当, 可禍延下几代, 许多人的美国夢亦渐渐幻滅。对比之下, 中国表面上繁荣富强, 快要取代美国的国際地位。但只要留心观察, 或親身体现, 作出客观比较, 中国社会问题也一大堆, 特别在文化生活, 精神信仰, 自由民主的领域上, 国民的文化素質, 比起世界各大文明, 还是差了一大段路。总括来说, 世界上沒有完美的社会和安身立命的地方。但基督徒的生命观、世界观和宇宙观卻不奠基於这个已经殘破的现象界, 和宥限的时空; 而是超越了敗坏的社会價值系统,及心身灵都被徹底汙染的生存环境。我们响往的乃是神所应许一个更美的家乡, 它不是一种幻想; 但只能用信心的鑰匙來打开这个属天奥祕的实体。坚持这种信念的人, 就不会因世界和社会的不稳定因素而惊惶度日, 而祇关注目前各种的动荡不安; 反之, 信徒若坚信持守神不变之道, 以永恒的视野來观照今生的短暂, 我们就一定会活得更有把握, 更有目的和更有盼望, 奉主耶穌圣名祷告, 阿们。(陈炽弟兄分享)

Meditation & Prayer:Last week we had a near miss of U.S. government shutdown, avoiding a general social panic. With 14 trillion national debts, if not resolved properly, this country will definitely plunge into an abysmal financial crisis soon, smashing the American Dream for many generations to come. China, while evolving as the economic powerhouse to replace U.S. in the global theatre, has a fair share of her social ills-such as polarization of rich & poor, extreme environmental pollution, lack of social morals and freedom of speech/religion. Arguably, there is no perfect world on earth.  However, for Christians, our perspectives toward life, our worldview and understanding of the future of our universe have a substantive difference that transcends human value systems, as well as all human constraints resulted from man’s sinful nature.  Indeed, we are longing for a better country—a heavenly one, a virtual celestial entity far from mere imagination. Only the faithful ones will be able to unlock this mystery promised by God. With this conviction, Christians shall overcome instability and withstand crisis situations as they come. While we continue to live on this earth, we will live with a clear purpose, a deep commitment and a unfailing hope. In Jesus’ holy name we pray, amen. (Brother Mike Chan’s sharing)
