「神說,你是祂眼中的利箭,是神所喜悅的。」

在戰場上,箭是一種遠程武器,
它直接的殺傷力不大,但它有個特別的功能--
能夠將訊息攜帶到遠處。

一枝箭能夠完成它的使命,最重要的第一點,就是方向。
越是要射得遠,起初的方向越要精確無誤。
如果出發點有所偏差,距離只會令偏差擴大--差之毫釐,謬之千里。

箭能夠去得遠的第二個重點,就是加力的過程。
箭起初能承受的壓力越大,發出後它的速度便越快,射程也越遠。

「神讓我看見,祂拉著一條彈弓。
神想你知道,祂拉得越行,當祂發出的時候,射程就更遠。
神其實希望你達到這種遠。」

當箭弦被拉到最後,箭所承受的壓力最大時,
也是它最貼近主人心臟之時。

二.了解自己

點解主耶穌不斷提醒法利賽人,唔好偽善,佢都要繼續做落去?
因為佢唔了解自己。當你指出佢既錯誤時,佢話你唔了解佢。

世上令人最唔了解自己既,就係自戀狂。
有d人永遠唔可以訓練成為領袖,因為佢唔了解自己。
最慘係,越唔了解自己嘅人,越覺得佢了解自己。

當你一講佢的盲點,佢即刻口黑面黑,佢唔開心,
佢覺得你咁樣睇佢──我唔係咁嘅人,點解你咁睇我?

佢將自己嘅缺點看為優點,當人將事實指出黎,佢唔能夠接受。
法利賽人唔了解佢故意做俾人睇係錯嘅,係會敗壞人,亦得唔到神嘅獎賞。
但你話佢咁禱告係偽善,佢覺得自己係真誠。

呢d人次次搬個問題出黎、搵你幫。
當你指出:「你有呢個問題係因為你有呢個性格。」
佢唔想你講佢嘅性格,佢覺得你唔了解佢。

領袖有個好大的試探:故意做俾人睇。
故意做俾人睇就係係信仰上出貓,想快D有果效,但係冇真材實料。

普通人普通一個禱告,領袖諗住用黎見證我嘅屬靈,
詐第敬拜讚美俾你睇,見證神係值得讚美丫麻。

佢用好多好屬靈既理由解釋點解做俾人睇:做個榜樣麻...
其實佢係呢個人生試場上追唔上,就出貓。

要竭止你以後都唔故意做俾人睇,你要知道三個鑰匙,
故意的壞處係多過好處:

一.了解神

當你了解神,你就唔會加速自己屬靈嘅高昇。
「他們已經得了他們的賞賜」係一個好大嘅咒詛。

舉個例:約瑟從來冇得佢身邊人的幫助,反而不斷俾人害。
每一次約瑟做D啱既野,應該係人讚佢,尊榮佢,但佢都得唔到獎賞。

我們或許希望神快點高升我們,快點將託付交給我們。
當我們完成一個託付後,又希望快快完成另一個。

就肉身來說,等待的過程有時確實令人吃力不消。
我們可能會不明白:我們所求的並非屬世的成功,
而是在神家中事奉的機會,為何還要一等再等呢?

但原來,這等待的過程,原是神奇妙、龐大的恩典,
將一些必須除掉的雜質從我們生命中挪去。

我們看見保羅起初成為基督徒後,便不住熱心地傳福音,
以他的口才跟法利賽人和宗教家辯論,駁倒許許多多的人。

但保羅對福音的熱忱,實在包含著太多雜質,
那種破壞力,甚至到一個階段,
影響到初期教會的運作和安危,令當時的教會對他避之則吉。

保羅深知在世的日子是很有限,因此希望快點事奉神,
而不想浪費個人的時間、才能和努力。

  • Muriel

It's not only that I promised in sickness and in health, till death do us part;
and I'm a man of my word.
But as I have said, its the only fair thing.
She sacrified for me for forty years to make my life possible.
So if I cared for her for forty years, I'd still be in debt.
However, there's much more...
It's not that I have to. It's that I get to.
I loved her dearly. She's a delight.
And it's a great honor to care for such a wonderful person.

And Muriel loved me, too. But then she couldn’t speak in sentences, only words –
and often words that didn’t make sense. No when she meant yes, for example.
But she could still say one sentence.
And she said it often: “I love you.”

She has not only said it, she acted it.
During the latter years of my presidency at Columbia,
it became increasingly difficult to keep her at home.
As soon as I left for the office, she would take out after me.
The walk to school is a mile round-trip.

From very beginning, I know that my life would be like David.
But sometimes, I become confused because of my own interpretation.

Recently, I asked God (a bit disappointed).
If I’m called as David, why am I not a good vocalist or pianist?
I love worship and I want to give You the best!

But then, I remembered what God once told me:
He won’t and didn’t make two identical Davids.
His plan is unique to each one of us.

And I understand that even if I’m called as David,
I have to follow God closely to find out
what it means exactly and specifically step by step.
And that’s what I have been doing all these years and shall continue.

This week, my heart was stirred again. My heartcry is that:
"I want to be a true worshipper, an anointed priest!
I want to have that Mantle of God’s presence - to bring Your presence wherever I go!"

謝謝你讓我的生命,一天比一天更豐盛。

謝謝你讓我越來越享受到人與人之間的愛。

但你永遠是那位,我一生的良伴,無人能夠取替。


永遠屬於你
