260靈修 Jan.2, 2012: 羅馬書第十五章 Romans 15

第十五章

1我們堅強的人,應該擔當不堅強的人的軟弱,不應該求自己的喜悅。2我們各人務要叫鄰舍喜悅,好讓他得到益處、得到造就。3因為連基督也不求自己的喜悅;反而像經上所記的:“辱罵你的人的辱罵,都落在我的身上。”4從前經上所寫的,都是為教訓我們而寫的,好使我們藉著忍耐和聖經中的安慰得著盼望。5願賜忍耐和安慰的神,使你們彼此同心,效法基督耶穌,6同心一致地榮耀我們主耶穌基督的父神。

 

默想

  1. 保羅提到我們應當擔當別人的軟弱,用我們的強處,來幫助那些有需要的人。
  2. 過去,曾經有過哪些人,以他們的能力與經驗來幫助過我?為他們的幫助來感謝神。
  3. 我在那些方面受過訓練、指引、輔導?神賜給我有哪些才能和恩賜?我可以怎樣來幫助別人?最近什麼人有需要,是我可以幫助的?

 

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”簿上面。

 

Chapter 15

1We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves. 2Each of us should please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. 3For even Christ did not please himself but, as it is written: "The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me." 4For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.

5May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, 6so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Meditation

  1. Paul specifies that we are to help others in areas where we are strong and able in the faith.
  2. Recall the people who have stepped in and built me up, even if I don’t remember the specific details.  Thank God for these people.
  3. What are some areas in which I have received training, direction, or guidance?  What are some of my natural gifts and strengths?  Who do I know that are in need that I can lend a helping hand?

 

 

 

Prayer & Journaling:

Stay with God for a little 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.
