You have control over at least one thing 你至少可以掌控一件事

During this time of lockdown, many things may feel like they are out of your control.  Remember that God is still in control.  And you do have control over at least one thing, your power to pray to God. In all these difficulties, God wants you to come pray to Him. He wants you to partner with Him in bringing order and peace back into this world.

Whenever you pray remember these 3 important verses:

1.  All generous giving and every perfect gift is from above (James 1:17a )

Every good thing that this world has received is from God. The sun shines on both believers and non-believers. Whenever you pray always start by giving thanks to God for all the good things that God has currently blessed you with.

2. Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4)

Our hearts may desire many things, but we should never forget that God should always be our number One desire. Every other desire should become secondary in comparison to pursuing God and bringing His Kingdom into this world. If we pray having God as our number One desire, He will for sure answer our prayers.

3. So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. (1 Cor. 10:31)

The purpose for all our prayers should always be for God’s glory. In the end, this world is going to be destroyed and restored to a new world where there is no more tears, pain, death nor sin. In this new world, God will forever be glorified and neither humans nor angels nor demons will  sin against Him any longer. Let us all pray having this new world in the back of our minds, so that we can always have the bigger picture in mind: All things are for God’s glory.

在居家隔離這段時間,很多事都讓我們感到失控,記得神仍掌權,雖然你可不能掌控所有的事情,你至少可以掌控一件事: 在神面前禱告的能力。在一切困難中,上帝希望你來到祂面前禱告,祂渴望你與祂同工,恢復世界的秩序與平安。

禱告時謹記三段重要的經文:

1.各樣美善的恩賜和全備的賞賜是從上頭來的。(雅1:17a)

世上所有的美善的事物都是從神來的,太陽照耀信徒與非信徒。總要為神的祝福與一切美善的賞賜獻上感恩,來開始你的禱告。

2.又要以耶和華為樂,他就將你心裡所求的賜給你。(詩篇37:4)

我們的心有許多渴望,但不要忘記神永遠是我們第一的渴慕,其他的渴望都當是次要的,首先要追求神與祂的國。如果我們禱告時將神放在首位,祂會樂於聽我們的禱告。

3. 所以,你們或吃或喝,無論做甚麼,都要為榮耀 神而行。(林前10:31)

我們禱告的目標應當是為了榮耀神,這世界最終都會被毀滅,並有新天新地─沒有眼淚、痛苦、死亡、罪惡。在這新的天地中,神將得著永遠的榮耀,無論是人或天使都不再犯罪抵擋神。讓我們都將新天地存在我們的心思意念來禱告,使我們有更大的異象─一切都為了神的榮耀。

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
