260靈修 Feb20, 2013 馬可福音 Mark 2:1-12

第二章
1過了些日子,耶穌又進了迦百農。人聽見他在房子裡, 2 就有許
多人聚集,甚至連門前都沒有空地;耶穌就對他們講道。 3 有人
帶著一個癱子來見耶穌,是用四個人抬來的; 4 因為人多,不得
近前,就把耶穌所在的房子,拆了房頂,既拆通了,就把癱子連所
躺臥的褥子都縋下來。 5 耶穌見他們的信心,就對癱子說:「小
子,你的罪赦了。」 6 有幾個文士坐在那裡,心裡議論,說: 7
「這個人為甚麼這樣說呢?他說僭妄的話了。除了神以外,誰能赦
罪呢?」 8 耶穌心中知道他們心裡這樣議論,就說:「你們心裡為
甚麼這樣議論呢? 9 或對癱子說『你的罪赦了』,或說『起來!拿
你的褥子行走』;哪一樣容易呢? 10 但要叫你們知道,人子在地
上有赦罪的權柄。」就對癱子說: 11 「我吩咐你,起來!拿你的
褥子回家去吧。」 12 那人就起來,立刻拿著褥子,當眾人面前出
去了,以致眾人都驚奇,歸榮耀與神,說:「我們從來沒有見過這
樣的事!」

默想:
1.神呼召我們不僅要拯救、塑造我們;並要我們彼此支持形成信
仰群體,且幫助他人也得到神的醫治、獲得健全的人生;正如
癱子的四位朋友,協力幫助他得著醫治一樣。

2.禱告:親愛的主,我很羨慕這四位朋友與癱子之間彼此親愛、
不計代價地互相支持的關係;我也希望我的小組組員們,也能
藉著互相的幫助扶持,得到主在我們身體上、情感上、靈性
上、生活上……的醫治。

禱告與筆錄:
繼續安靜在神面前聆聽神,並將你的的思想、問題、觸動你的字、
詞、圖畫,或是與神的禱告,寫在你的靈程筆記簿上面。

今日箴言:4:20-23
20 我兒,要留心聽我的言辭,側耳聽我的話語, 21 都不可離
你的眼目,要存記在你心中。 22 因為得著它的就得了生命,
又得了醫全體的良藥。 23 你要保守你心,勝過保守一切,因
為一生的果效是由心發出。

Mark 2
1A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that
he had come home.2So many gathered that there was no room left, not even
outside the door, and he preached the word to them.
3Some men came, bringingto him a paralytic, carried by four of them.
4Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus and, after
digging through it, lowered the mat the paralyzed man was lying on.
5When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Son, your sins are forgiven."
6 Now some teachers of the law were sitting there, thinking to themselves,
7 "Why does this fellow talk like that? He's blaspheming! Who can
forgive sins but God alone?"
8Immediately Jesus knew in his spirit that this was
what they were thinking in their hearts, and he said to them, "Why are you
thinking these things?9Which is easier: to say to the paralytic, 'Your sins are
forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up, take your mat and walk'?
10But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins . . . ." He said to the
paralytic,11"I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home."
12He got up, took his mat and walked out in full view of them all. This amazed everyone and they
praised God, saying, "We have never seen anything like this!"

Meditation
1. God has called us not only to individual spiritual formation, but to be
formed into communities of faith too. We pray for one another and
work for the healing and wholeness of others, just as this paralytic’s
four friends help him receive the healing he needs.

2. Prayer: Dear Lord, how I desire the mutual love, care and sacrificial
support between this paralytic and his friends. I hope that there will be
similar relationships between me and my cell members so that we may
all receive healings in our body, emotion, spiritual life, daily life……

Prayer & Journaling: On your prayer journal, as you listen to God, write down a few
thoughts, questions, words, names, drawings, or anything that has come to your mind
during this time.

Proverbs for Today: 4:20-23
20My son, be attentive to my words;
incline your ear to my sayings.
21Let them not escape from your sight;
keep them within your heart.
22For they are life to those who find them,
and healing to all their flesh.
23Keep your heart with all vigilance,
for from it flow the springs of life.
