7月28日靈修禱文

“My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.

John 4:34

Thought

Jesus gives this cryptic comment to his disciples after they return from a town in Samaria with food.  They are eager to serve their Master, Jesus, physical food.  The disciples are concerned with action, but have missed seeing the Samaritan woman Jesus was talking to (John 4:27-28).  They were hungry for Jesus.  Jesus was hungry for the Samaritans to receive the Messiah.  What kinds of appetites do you notice in this pandemic time.  Physical, emotional, spiritual, relational hunger.  Do any of those appetites help fulfill God's will?  Or does it only fulfill your will and desire?  Are you hungry to do the will of God?  To express His love to the world?  To be the hands and feet and mouth of God to others?  O God, with all my heart I long for you captures this desire to serve and please God's greatest desire.

Prayer

Father God, help me to know your will and discern it.  Holy Spirit, empower me to be dedicated to fulfilling your will in order to please you.  Fill me with joy and a growing appetite to be with you and serve you and your desires.  Amen.

耶穌說 、我的食物就是遵行差我來者的旨意 、作成他的工。

約翰福音4:34

思想

耶穌的門徒從撒瑪利亞的一個小鎮帶食物回來時,耶穌說出這樣的話,意思是隱晦不明的。他們殷勤地向夫子耶穌奉上食物。他們只留心要做的事,卻似乎忽畧了剛與耶穌交談的這個撒瑪利亞婦人(約翰福音4:27-28)。門徒渴慕的是耶穌。耶穌卻渴想所有撒瑪利亞人都接受彌賽亞。在疫情期間,你注視的是哪類渴求呢?是肉體,情緒,靈性,還是關係方面的飢餓?這些方面的渴求,哪些是有助完成神的旨意呢?還是只滿足你的意願和欲望?你渴望遵行神的旨意嗎?渴望向世人述說祂的愛嗎?為了別人,你渴望成為神的手,腳,口嗎?神啊,我一心渴慕你。願我有渴慕事奉的心,討神喜悦。

禱告

父神,請幫我知道並明辨你的旨意。請求聖靈賜我力量,專心致志地完成你的旨意,討你喜悦。請以喜樂充滿我,叫我不斷渴望親近你,事奉你,體察你的心意。阿門。
