2014.11.23 合神心意的事奉 (2014.11.21)

神救贖我們其中一個最主要的目的是為叫我們可以服事祂。今天我們在教會中不難看見一些熱心服事主的弟兄姐妹,也不難看見釵h有各樣恩賜的同工,但我們都必須問自己一個問題:我為什麼服事?我服事的目的是甚麼?神要我如何使用祂所賜給我各樣的恩賜才幹來事奉祂?透過你我的事奉如何能成為他人的祝福? 正如,如果你愛一個人,對方叫你做事,你不會介意是大事或小事;若關係不好,你就會開始計較。教會裡的服事和外面做事最大的不同是,在外面做事需要別人的肯定,如加薪、升遷,而同工在教會若是為主來作,首先會想到的不是我們做甚麼,乃是先想到「我們的主」、「主自己」。正確的領受讓我們的服事有突破,一切的服事都要從神開始。我們要捫心自問:「對神有一股熱忱嗎?」「態度正確嗎?」如果我們認為環境對我們是忍心,刻薄,我們就很難喜樂起來,自然就很難作神的工。如果我們不從恩典角度出發,有一天我們擔負的責任越大,擁有的資源越多,我們就越容易軟弱──我們會誇口,會聲稱一切是我們努力來的。我們來到主的面前,對主的認識若沒有產生一顆火熱的心(passion),那麼服事一陣子之後,我們就會開始爭競、埋怨,到最後演變成對神有錯誤的認識。 服事的目的,不是使自己出名、得利,或一展抱負。常有人在教會、小組中很熱心,却不是為主,而是為了能出鋒頭。這種事奉在神面前無法站立得住。施洗約翰給我們立下良好的榜樣,他以主耶穌的榮耀為寶貴,自己却存心謙卑、隱藏。這才是真正的事奉。服事的目標與結果是為著神的榮耀,服事的過程也要按照神的法則與心意。人有軟弱,易受環境的影響,人情的干擾,若按著我們的喜好行,往往會降低事奉的品質。摩西在設立會幕時,神三番四次叮囑他:「要照我所指示你的樣式。」若隨著以色列人的心意,會幕恐怕就變成外邦神廟的樣式了,聖經啟示了釵h服事神的法則,我們當切切尋求,照著去行。

禱告的力量

「你們若常在我裡面,我的話也常在你們裡面,凡你們所願意的,祈求,就給你們成就。」(約翰福音十五:7)

        耶穌回到天上之前,祂教導門徒們兩件重要功課,是有關門徒與祂的關係,與託付門徒在地上的大使命。
        第一件祂說明祂在天上比祂在地上時,更有能力;祂的能力要藉由門徒的言行工作,來達成拯救人靈魂的使命。
        第二件就是說離了祂就不能做什麼,惟有靠著耶穌的能力,才能完成天父的旨意。所以,我們首要之務,就是將各樣大事小事,都藉著禱告,帶到主耶穌面前。在最後的晚餐席上,祂七次重複祂的應許:「要住在我裡面,奉我的名禱告。」「你要信靠我。」「你向我求什麼,我必應允你。」
        等到門徒們將這兩樣真理存記在心,耶穌就差派他們出去做工,他們也有信心將所付託的聖工做好,因為這位榮耀全能的主,要透過門徒做比祂在世時,還要更大的工作。這些軟弱無助的門徒,惟有仰望禱告這位全能的主,且相信上帝是垂聽禱告,他們相信上帝的應許必要成就,他們一生的工作就是讓上帝的能力,藉著他們的禱告得以成就彰顯。
        很遺憾,教會對這真理了解太少,也太少人相信這應許,相信他們能每天住在耶穌裡面,以致他們無法運用這應許的寶貴力量。身為耶穌的肢體,讓我們學習這個重要的功課,就是無論在生活或工作上,每天首要之務就是常常地親近耶穌,完全地仰賴祂,凡事藉著禱告與祂連接,如此我們方能確保祂垂聽了我們的祈求,並以祂的信實來行使祂這部份的工作,從高天寶座供應無限的力量與祝福給屬祂的子民。
        喔!上帝的僕人,要花時間,全心全意地相信耶穌基督說過的話,耶穌問:「你相信嗎?」是的,我信。「凡住在我裡面的,無論求什麼,都必成就。」


God's Best Secrets by Andrew Murray 4/19

THE POWER OP PRAYER

" If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatso¬ever ye will, and it shall be done unto you."?XJOHN xv. 7. R. V.

        Ere our Lord went to heaven He taught His disciples two great lessons in regard to their relation to Him in the great work they had to do.

        The one was that in Heaven He would have much more power than He had upon earth, and that He would use that power for the salvation of men, solely through them, their word and their work.

        The other was that they without Him could do nothing, but that they could count upon Him to work in them and through them, and so carry out His purpose. Their first and chief work would therefore he to bring everything they wanted done to Him in prayer. In the Farewell Discourse He repeats the promise seven times: "Abide in Me, pray in My name"; you can count upon it, "you can ask what you will; it shall be done to you."

        With these two truths written in their heart, He sent them out into the world. They could confidently undertake their work. The Almighty, glorified Jesus, ready to do in and with and through them greater things than He Himself had ever done upon earth. The impotent helpless disciples on earth unceasingly looking up to Him in prayer, with the full confidence that He would hear that prayer; the first and only condition, an unflinching confidence in the power of His promise. The chief thing in all their life and in the work of their ministry was to be the maintenance of a spirit of prayer and supplication.

        Alas, how little the Church has understood and believed this! And why ? Simply because believers live so little in the daily abid¬ing in Christ that they are powerless in believing His great and precious promises. Let us learn the lesson, both for our life and work, that as the members of Christ's body, the chief thing every day must be that close abiding fellowship with Christ, which ever first takes its place of deep dependence and unceasing supplication. Only then can we do our work in the full assurance that He has heard our prayer and will be faithful in doing His part, in giving the power from on high, as the source of strength and abundant blessing. Take time, oh, take time, ye servants of the Lord, and with your whole heart believe the word Christ has spoken. Christ asks: "Believest thou this?" Yea, Lord, I believe. "Abide in Me, Abide in My love." "If ye abide in Me, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you."
