260靈修 Nov.22, 2011: 哥林多前書第十五章1Corinthians 15

十五 

50 弟兄們,我告訴你們,血肉之體不能承受神的國,必朽壞的也不能承受那不朽壞的。 51 我現在把一個奧祕告訴你們:我們不是都要睡覺,而是在一剎那,眨眼之間,就是號角最後一次吹響的時候,我們都要改變;因為號角要吹響,死人要復活,成為不朽壞的,我們也要改變。 53 這必朽壞的必須穿上不朽壞的,這必死的必須穿上不死的; 54 這必朽壞的既穿上了不朽壞的,這必死的既穿上了不死的,那時,經上的話就應驗了:“勝利了!死亡已經被吞滅。 55 死亡啊!你的勝利在哪裡?死亡啊!你的毒刺在哪裡?” 56 死的毒刺就是罪,罪的權勢就是律法。 57 感謝神,他藉著我們的主耶穌基督,把勝利賜給我們。 58 所以,我親愛的弟兄們,你們務要堅固,不可動搖,常常竭力多作主工,因為知道你們的勞苦,在主裡面不是徒然的。

 

默想

  1. 若今天有人替我訃聞信,內容會有些什麼?我希望別人怎樣寫這封信?把心中的感受與想法,一點一點地告訴神,等候聖靈在心中工作、說話。

 

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

50I declare to you, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. 51Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. 54When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: "Death has been swallowed up in victory."
55"Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?" 56The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

58Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

 

Meditation

  1. If someone is writing a tribute for my memorial, what would be written in it?  How would I like people to write the letter announcing my death?
  2. Tell Jesus all my thoughts and emotions right now.  Stay quiet to allow the Holy Spirit to minister to me now.

 

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.
