第七章

9 此後,我觀看,見有許多的人,沒有人能數過來,是從各國、各族、各民、各方來的,站在寶座和羔羊面前,身穿白衣,手拿棕樹枝,10 大聲喊著說:

「願救恩歸與坐在寶座上我們的神,也歸與羔羊!」

11 眾天使都站在寶座和眾長老並四活物的周圍,在寶座前,面伏於地,敬拜神,
12 說:阿們!頌讚、榮耀、智慧、感謝、尊貴、權柄、大力都歸與我們的神,直到永永遠遠。阿們!

 

默想:

  1. 你是否曾聽說過這話:我們一生的唯一目標就是敬拜神?
  2. 出聲再讀一次這段經文,聆聽敬拜者的話語:「願救恩歸與坐在寶座上我們的神,也歸與羔羊!」「阿們!頌讚、榮耀、智慧、感謝、尊貴、權柄、大力都歸與我們的神,直到永永遠遠。阿們!」思想,為什麼神值得我的敬拜?
  3. 嘗試「面伏於地」在神面前,就像本段中的天使,長老,活物一樣,告訴神我為什麼敬拜祂;存著感恩、真實、熱切的心,向神說話,敬拜祂。

 

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 7

9After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. 10And they cried out in a loud voice:
"Salvation belongs to our God,
who sits on the throne,
and to the Lamb." 11All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12saying:
"Amen!
Praise and glory
and wisdom and thanks and honor
and power and strength
be to our God for ever and ever.
Amen!"

 

Meditation

  1. Ever heard it said that the sole purpose of our life is to worship God?
  2. Read this passage aloud one more time and listen to the words of the worshippers.  Think, why is God worthy of my worship?
  3. Consider lying down on my face before him as I tell him (with specifics), just as the angels, elders, and animals do in this passage. Respond to him with thanksgiving, authenticity, honesty and passion.

 

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 2012 “Spiritual Journal” book.
