260靈修 June 30, 2011: 馬太福音第十一章 Matthew:11

第十一章

最好能將全章略讀一遍,再專注於以下經文段落:

 

1耶穌吩咐完了十二個門徒,就離開那裏,往各城去傳道、教訓人。2約翰在監裏聽見基督所做的事,就打發兩個門徒去,3問他說:「那將要來的是你嗎?還是我們等候別人呢?」4耶穌回答說:「你們去,把所聽見、所看見的事告訴約翰。5就是瞎子看見,瘸子行走,長大痲瘋的潔淨,聾子聽見,死人復活,窮人有福音傳給他們。6凡不因我跌倒的就有福了!」

 

默想:

  1. 我是否也像約翰一樣,雖然信主已經一段時間,但仍然會對自己的信仰產生懷疑,恐怕所信的不是真的?主耶穌的回答能否解決我的困境?
  2. 在我自己身上或是周圍的人生命中,我曾否看見過主耶穌的作為?寫下至少三件神的作為,現在就為此感謝神。
  3. 「回憶神的工作」,「一顆感恩的心」,與「身處困境艱難」,這三者有什麼互相的關聯與作用?

禱告與筆錄:

繼續安靜在神面前,與神對話,並聆聽祂對我說的話。將心中的思想(心得),或是與神的禱告,記錄在“靈程筆記”本上面。

 

Chapter 11

If possible, read the whole chapter to see the full picture of what is happening here.  Then focus on the following section:

1After Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he went on from there to teach and preach in the towns of Galilee. 2When John heard in prison what Christ was doing, he sent his disciples 3to ask him, "Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?"  4Jesus replied, "Go back and report to John what you hear and see: 5The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor. 6Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me."

Meditation:

  1. Have I been like John doubt Jesus after a period of unresolved difficulties and problems?  How would Jesus’ reply to John answer my doubts?
  2. Have I seen the work of Jesus in my life and lives of those around me? Write down at least three things.  Then, utter a thanksgiving payer to God.
  3. What do “Remembering God’s work, a Grateful heart, and a Difficult Situation” have in common in bringing us to God?

Prayer & Journaling:

Stay with God for a little while longer.  Continue to converse with God and listen to what he wants to tell me.  Then write down any thought and/or prayer in the 2011 “Spiritual Journal” book.

Family Time:

How do we share the gospel with other people?  Jesus told his disciples to tell John “what you hear and see”.  Tell people what God has done in our lives is the best way of sharing the gospel.  What can you tell people?  Who do you want to tell it to?  Decide when you will tell and pray for the person to be willing to listen.
