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。

羔羊婚宴

「天使吩咐我說,你要寫上,凡被請赴羔羊之婚筵的有福了。」(啟示錄十九:9)

        那些曾在救恩之泉歡然暢飲的信徒們,都被列在羔羊婚筵邀請的名單上,不僅是觀禮者,更是新婦的角色。經文曾記,有位天使說:「來,我要給你們看新娘,就是羔羊的新婦。」就有一座聖城耶路撒冷,從上帝那兒降下,充滿天國的榮光,世上被拯救的各國各民,都在光中行走。羔羊的婚筵就要在那一刻舉行——耶穌將被贖的子民,當作祂完整無瑕的身子般,獻在上帝面前,將來他們且要與祂一起坐在寶座上永遠做王。
        聖經中那個浪子回家,父親就為他辦了一桌酒席,筵席中所有的親朋好友都為這個失而復得的兒子開懷高興。再想:天國的婚筵,為慶祝耶穌在十架上的勝利,以及羔羊寶血所買回的新婦,那種歡樂、興奮的場面,是何等榮耀、歡欣,是遠超過我們所能想像的。
        若我們受邀請參加大人物的婚筵,我們一定刻意打扮,穿著整齊,免得失禮。我們參加羔羊的婚筵,豈不更當如此?親愛的弟兄姐妹們,若你真誠珍惜羔羊婚筵的可貴,你每天豈不會善用這特權,常常來到施恩寶座前親近祂?你豈不會將自己毫無保留地交託給耶穌?並求祂教導你如何更妥當地修飾打扮自己,好讓自己準備好隨時參加那期盼的羔羊婚筵!但不要僅僅替自己打點,還要替別人著想,盡力邀請親朋好友,搭上這班福音列車,共赴羔羊的永恆愛筵!

THE MARRIAGE OF THE LAMB

"And He saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they -which are bidden to the marriage supper of the Lamb."?XREV. xix. 9.

        All who rejoice in Salvation are called to the marriage of the Lamb, not merely as spectators, but unitedly they form the bride of the Lamb. We read that when one of the angels said, "Come, and I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb," he showed the Holy Jerusalem descending from heaven from God, and she had the glory of God, and the nations who shall be saved, walk in her light. The time of the marriage feast of the Lamb will be when Christ presents His redeemed people as one body to the Father, and they are taken up to sit with Him on the Throne eternally.

        When the prodigal son returned to his home, his father made a feast, where all rejoiced together over the return of the son who had been dead, and now was alive again. What joy there will be when the Everlasting Love that gave itself for us on the cross shall celebrate its triumph and the glory of God, and the revelation of the love of God, that passeth all understanding!

        When we are invited to the wedding of a distinguished person we take great care to be arrayed in suitable wedding garments. What concern then, mingled with joy, should there be in the hearts of those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb! O child of God, if you really cherish the joyful hope of sitting at the marriage feast of the Lamb, will you not each day make use of the unspeakable privilege of approaching the Throne of Grace? Will you not entrust yourself, in loving surrender, to Him, and pray for grace that each day the way may be made more ready for the great heavenly marriage feast of the Lamb? Do not only prepare yourself; but seek for grace that you may win others, and bring them as well to partake of the feast of Everlasting Love.
