Meditate on God's Word Daily 每天思想神的話語

     Unilever recently released a study of how Covid-19 affected people’s buying pattern. The demand for ice cream has increased while the demands for shampoo and deodorant have decreased. Due to this stressful environment people have not been taking care of their health that well.

      As Christians, we need to understand that health is comprised of not only physical and mental health but also spiritual health. We must take care of our health so that we can better serve God. The most important aspect of our health is our spiritual health, because when we focus on our spiritual health, both mental and physical health are affected positively from it. Just as people brush their teeth everyday to take care of their physical health, we must also meditate on God’s Word everyday to take care of our spiritual health. We must meditate on God’s Word daily even when we don’t feel like it, just as we brush our teeth every day regardless if we feel like brushing or not. This is a matter of health and not about how we feel about things. We must choose to discipline ourselves to do it, for the sake of our spiritual health.

      How to meditate on God’s Word daily:

  1. Schedule an appointment with God, preferably first thing in the morning. We schedule a time with God to show that He is important in our lives and not giving Him leftover free time.

  2. Systematically read through a book of the Bible to understand the flow of story better. Devotionals are good but nothing beats reading the Bible itself. I recommend starting with one of the four Gospels.

  3. Always pray first before reading. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you understand God’s Word.

  4. Meditate on every word SLOWLY. Read only a passage or at most 1 chapter per sitting. It is not advisable to read more than a chapter; it is like taking a shower for more than an hour. It is not beneficial.

  5. Prayer of recap and application after reading. Praise God for what you’ve learned and ask the Holy Spirit to help you apply it in your life.

  6. Do it for 90 days straight and experience God transforming your life. Studies show that it takes 90 days straight to develop lifelong habits.

1 Timothy 4:7-8

…train yourself for godliness. For physical exercise has some value, but godliness is valuable in every way. It holds promise for the present life and for the life to come.

  聯合利華公司最近發佈了一項研究,關於Covid-19如何影響人們的購買方式。冰淇淋的需求量增加了,而洗髮精和芳香劑的需求量卻減少了。面對有壓力的環境,人們沒有好好照顧自己的健康。

  作為基督徒,我們需要了解,健康不僅包括身體和心理的健康,還包括屬靈上的健康。我們必須照顧好自己的健康,才能更好地事奉神。健康最重要的是靈性方面的健康,因為當我們專注於靈性的健康時,身心健康都會受到正面的影響。正如每天刷牙以照顧身體健康一樣。我們必須每天默想神的話語,以照顧我們的屬靈健康,即使我們不喜歡,正如我們必須每天刷牙一樣,無論我們是否喜歡,這是關乎健康,不在於我們的感覺。為了靈性的健康,我們必須選擇自律,默想神的話語。

  每天如何思想神的話語:

  1. 與上帝約會,最好是早晨起床的第一件事。我們安排與神相交的時間,表明祂在我們的生活中很重要,而不是將剩餘的空閒時間給祂。

  2. 有系統的通讀聖經,以全面理解故事的進展。靈修小品很好,但不能與直接閱讀聖經相比,我建議從四本福音書開始閱讀。

  3. 讀經前請務必先禱告。求聖靈幫助我們明白神的話。

  4. 慢慢思想每個字,每次只讀一段經文,最多一章。不建議讀多於一章,就像洗個澡一個多小時。這是沒有好處的。

  5. 讀經後以禱告回應並實際應用。為所學到的真理讚美神,並懇求聖靈幫助以活出真理。

  6. 連續做90天,經歷上帝改變你的生命。研究顯示,需要90天才能養成新的生活習慣。

  提摩太前書4:7-8

…在敬虔上操練自己。操練身體,益處還少;惟獨敬虔,凡事都有益處,因有今生和來生的應許。

~Min. David Or 柯啟洋傳道~

敬虔 Godliness

大哉,敬虔的奧祕!無人不以為然:就是神在肉身顯現,被聖靈稱義(或作:在靈性稱義),被天使看見,被傳於外邦,被世人信服,被接在榮耀裡。~提前3:16~ 敬虔是一種態度,一種氣質,是一種品格,合起來是一種生命。敬虔是基督徒當活出的生命品格。弟兄姊妹應當常常反省自己是否有這種生命。寫教牧書信的使徒保羅深深認識這敬虔的奧秘,活出這敬虔的生命,進而傳揚敬虔的奧秘。因此,我們在神的家中首先要認識,才能傳揚,這

道 Logos

聖經中有個很重要的字─道(Logos),其內涵十分豐富,簡單來說是神的話語,其中包含了萬事萬物存在的意義和目的,以及其運行的法則(包括救恩),並且受造物當遵守的道路。聖子耶穌基督親自「道」成肉身, 祂本是神,與聖父原為一,以人的樣式活在我們當中。我們感謝神,因著那生命之道,聖經,神的話語成為我們思想和行為的準則和方向。 今日基督徒在價值觀和世界觀上都面對空前的挑戰。怎樣不效法這個世界,而跟隨神的腳
