9月12日靈修禱文|DEVOTION

For this reason I make request to you, brothers, by the mercies of God, that you will give your bodies as a living offering, holy, pleasing to God, which is the worship it is right for you to give him. And let not your behaviour be like that of this world, but be changed and made new in mind, so that by experience you may have knowledge of the good and pleasing and complete purpose of God.

Romans 12:1-2

Thought

School restarted last week, my workplace is also officially back to office this week. What is normal? What is the right thing to do? Is going back a right decision? There are many different opinions on every argument and which one is correct? This bible verse was the annual theme verse when I was in Bethlehem fellowship and I memorize in my mind. “By the mercies of God”, “give your bodies as a living offering”, “let not your behavior be like that of this world”, “be changed and made new in mind”. The most important is “complete purpose of God”. It doesn’t matter which side is correct, it only matters on God’s purpose for you. If you are staying home, God has a purpose for you to stay home. If you are back to school/office, God has a purpose for you too. There is a purpose for us to be in our situation and let us glorify His name.

Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for bringing me into the world and giving me a purpose. We have very carefully made different decisions in our life, spent lots of time to research if our decision is right or wrong. We forget you have given us a purpose in our situation. Discard what situation we are in, please help us to glorify your name. Transform us to be a “Christ Center”, “Spirit empowers”, “mission focus disciples”, and help us to “multiple Your name everyone” in our own situation. Amen.
Elder Eric Tong

所 以 弟 兄 們 、 我 以   神 的 慈 悲 勸 你 們 、 將 身 體 獻 上 、 當 作 活 祭 、 是 聖 潔 的 、 是   神 所 喜 悅 的 . 你 們 如 此 事 奉 、 乃 是 理 所 當 然 的 。不 要 效 法 這 個 世 界 . 只 要 心 意 更 新 而 變 化 、 叫 你 們 察 驗 何 為   神 的 善 良 、 純 全 可 喜 悅 的 旨 意 。

羅馬書 12: 1 – 2

思想

學校上星期重開了,我本星期亦正式返回辦事處上班。甚麼謂之常態呢?做甚麼才是正確呢?「恢復從前」是正確的決定嗎?每個論點都會有很多不同的意見,哪個才是正確的呢?當我還參加伯利恆團契時,這節經文是年度主題經文,我把它牢記心中。「以神的慈悲」,「將身體獻上,當作活祭」,「不要效法這個世界」,「要心意更新而變化」。最重要的是「神純全的旨意」。哪邊的説法正確並不重要,唯一重要的是神在你身上的旨意。假使你留在家中,神在你身上有祂的旨意;假如你返回學校/辦公室,神在你身上也有衪的旨意。無論我們處境如何,神在我們身上都有其旨意,讓我們榮耀祂的名。

禱告

親愛的天父,感謝你把我帶到這個世上來,給予我生存目標。我們一生中非常小心作出不同的抉擇,花很多時間研究有關抉擇是否正確。我們忘記不論我們處境是甚麼,你在我們身上都有你的旨意。不論我們處境怎樣,都請幫助我們榮耀你的名。改變我們成為「以基督為中心,蒙聖靈加力,以宣教為目標」的門徒,並幫助我們在各自處境下都能「到處榮耀你的名」。阿門。
