今日靈修默想集 TMAP (Today’s Meditation And Prayer) 馬太福音靈修默想 Spiritual Meditation on the Gospel of Matthew

1 《今日靈修默想》:「必有童女懷孕生子;人要稱他的名為以馬內利。」(以馬內利翻出來就是「神與我們同在」(太1:23)

默想一:聖誕節與新年有關嗎?絕對有關的。耶穌基督降世,為要拯救罪人。祂藉著被釘在十字架上完成了救贖,使神與我們同在, 這就是以馬內利的意思。祂的同在不是外在的,而是內住的;不是暫時的,而是永遠的;不是憑感覺的,而是憑信心的;不是客觀的,而是主觀的經歷。你若接受祂為你生命的救主及生活的主,「以馬內利」對你的新年有實際的意義。

默想二:你新年的新希望是什麼?你的禱告是什麼?神的同在比什麼都重要。有神同在,無往不利;有神同在,爭戰得勝;有神同在,充滿盼望;有神同在,從不孤單;有神同在,事奉有力;有神同在,家庭有愛;有神同在,凡事謝恩;有神同在,就是天堂。

禱告:親愛的阿爸父神,感謝袮在基督裡的新創造。若有人在基督裡,他就是新造的人,舊事已過,都變成新的了(林後5:17)。求袮差遣聖靈內住我心,讓2019年在袮的同在下,我願在靈命上追求日日更新,信心更堅固,服事更忠心,愛人更真誠,靈修更紮實。奉耶穌基督的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Emmanuel” (Mat 1:23)

Meditation one: Is Christmas related to the New Year? Yes, absolutely. Jesus Christ came to the world in order to save sinners. He fulfilled His salvation by being crucified, so that God is with us, and that is the meaning of Emanuel. His presence is not stay around us but resides in us; not temporary, but eternal; not by feeling, but by faith; not by objectivity, but by subjective experience. If you accept Him as the savior of your life and the Lord of your daily activities, “Emanuel ” then has practical implications for your New Year.

Meditation two: What is your New Year’s wish? What is your prayer? The presence of God is more important than anything else. God is with you, invincible; God is with you, victorious; God is with you, full of hope; God is with you, never alone; there is God, ministry full of strength; there is God in the family, there is love; there is God, there is heaven.

Prayer: Dear Abba Father, thank You for Your new creation in Christ. “If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” (2 Co 5:17). Ask You to send the Holy Spirit to live in my heart. In the presence of You I will be willing to pursue renewal every day in the year of 2019. Faith roots more firmly, serving even more faithfully, loving more sincerely, and spiritual seeking more sturdily. Pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!  


2 《今日靈修默想》:「那生下來作猶太人之王的在那裡?我們在東方看見他的星,特來拜他。」(太2:2)

默想一:在新的一年裡,你願把敬拜主當作最重要的事嗎。專精天文的東方博士從舊約中得到啟示深信他們所看見的大星是救主降生的記號後,他們特地來敬拜耶穌。他們不僅來敬拜主,他們有備而來地把黃金,乳香,沒藥奉獻給主。我們當學習他們,用感恩的心來敬拜這位萬王之王,萬主之主。

默想二:基督徒為什麼要要敬拜神?因為敬拜神是祂創造我們的目的,我們以敬拜表達我們對祂的尊崇、事奉、感恩、愛戴。神為了人的需要特別安排了主日,不是放假日Holiday, 而是敬拜神的聖日Holy Day。願我們在2019年的每一個主日敬拜裡從不缺席,單單地尊主日為聖,與弟兄姐妹齊心敬拜讚美神。

禱告:天父上帝,我的神!我要讚美袮,袮配接受榮耀、尊貴和權能,因為袮創造了萬有;萬有是因著袮的旨意而造。我要感謝袮帶領我踏進2019年,求袮教導我如何善用光陰多多服事袮,並珍惜每一個敬拜日。主!我願謙卑地、積極地、甘心地參與永恆性的、有意義的事工。奉耶穌基督的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” (Mat 2:2)

Meditation one: In the new Year, would you like to make worshiping Lord the most important thing? The three wisemen, who specialized in astronomy, was inspired by the Old Testament to believe that the bright star they saw was the signs of the birth of the Savior, and they came specially to worship Jesus. They not only came to worship the Lord, they presented with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to the Lord. We should learn from them and worship the King of kings, the Lord of the Lords, with a grateful heart.

Meditation two: Why should Christians worship God? For worship God is the purpose for which He created us, and we worship Him to express our reverence, serving, gratitude, and love. God specially arranged The Lord’s day for the sake of people, not a day off or a holiday, but a holy day of Worship of God. May we never be absent on every Sunday in 2019, and solely honor the Lord’s day as holy, and praise God with our brothers and sisters.

Prayer: God heavenly Father, my God! I will praise You, You deserve glory, honor, and might, for You has created all; all things were made by the Your own will. I would like to thank You for leading me into the year of 2019 and asking You to teach me how to make the best use of my time to serve You and cherish every day of worship. Lord! I would like to be humbly, initiatively and willingly to participate in the eternal, meaningful ministry. Pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!  


3 《今日靈修默想》:「你們要結出果子來,與悔改的心相稱。」(太3:8)

默想一:當你踏入新年走新路時,你帶著新人新心嗎?你受過洗了,但行事為人與基督的福音相稱嗎?你是基督徒,但所結的果子與悔改的心相稱嗎?真悔改不是指外表上、口頭上、禮儀上的行為,所指的是不僅為過去所做的感到憂傷、自責、羞愧,而且下定決心與過去一刀兩斷,轉離罪惡,歸向神,並活在祂的旨意裡。

默想二:你願在新年過新人的新生活嗎?謙卑來到神面前禱告:「求神賜給我一個新心,將新靈放在我裡面,又從我的肉體除掉石心(死的,沒有反應)賜給我肉心(活著的,有回應)。」(結36:26)感謝主,我們信靠基督在祂裡面成為新造的人,舊事已過都變成新的了。

禱告:父神,感謝祢所賜的新生命。求祢引導我在新的一年裡,完全活出新的生命及生活,結滿聖靈的果子。我立志為袮而活,而且活得要比去年更豐盛、更長進、更愛祢。奉耶穌寶貴的聖名祈求。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. “ (Mat 3:8)

Meditate one: When you step into the new year and take a new path, do you take a new heart with you? You have been baptized, yet did you conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ? You are a Christian, but was the fruit produced keeping with repentance? True repentance does not refer to the act of appearance, verbal, or etiquette, but not only to the contriteness, remorse, and shame of what was done in the past, but also make up your mind to break with the past, turn away from sin, return to God, and live in His will.

Meditation two: Would you like to live a new life as a “new you” in the new Year? Humbly come to God and pray, “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone (dead, unresponsive) and give you a heart of flesh (Alive, responsive). “ (Eze 36:26). Thank Lord, belief in Christ has made us new creations in Him. The old has gone, the new is here.

Prayer: Thank You heavenly Father for giving the new life. Guide me in the New year, completely live a new spirit and new life, full of the fruit of the Holy Spirit. I am determined to live for You and live more abundantly, more constructively, and more loving You than last year. Pray in the Precious Holy Name of Jesus. Amen!  


4 《今日靈修默想》:耶穌說:「撒但(魔鬼)退去吧!因為經上記著說:「當拜主你的神,單要侍奉(敬拜)祂。」(太4:10)

默想一:基督徒可以憑自己單槍匹馬勝過魔鬼嗎?不能!魔鬼只要以萬國的榮華富貴當誘餌,就能輕易地騙得人的心,使人崇仰牠,並跟牠一樣抵擋神。我們只有信靠神,經常禱告並讀神的話。神的話是聖靈的寶劍,是致勝魔鬼的利器。

默想二:基督徒如何在各行各業作到「單單地侍奉主」?就是在你的工作崗位上為主的緣故盡本分,目的是事奉神、見證神、榮耀神。基督徒絕不能又事奉神,又事奉瑪門[財利](太6:24)。

禱告:主耶穌,感謝祢賜給我得勝撒但的確據。求祢幫助我,在每天面臨抉擇於愛神與愛世界、事奉神與事奉世界、討神喜歡與討世界喜歡時,讓我勇敢地對世界說「NO!」,而對神說「YES!」。奉祢寶貴的尊名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: Jesus said: “Away from me, Satan (devil)! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve (worship) Him only’.” (Mat 4:10)

Meditation one: Can Christians overpower the devil on their own? No! The Devil can easily deceive a man’s heart by being bait with all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor, and make a man to worship him, and reject God as much as he does. We just trust in God and always pray and read the Word of God. The Word of God is the sword of the Holy Spirit and the weapon to defeat devil.

Meditation two: How can Christians, in all walks of life, still “serve the Lord alone”? It is for the sake of Lord you do your part in order to serve God, to witness God, and to glorify God. Christians cannot serve both God and mammon [fortune] (Mat 6:24).

Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for giving me the assurance of victory over Satan. Help me, in every day, when I face the choice between loving God or the world, serving Lord or the world, pleasing God or the world, let me bravely say “NO !” to the world, and say “YES !” to God. Pray in Thy Precious Name. Amen!  


5 《今日靈修默想》:「你們的光也當這樣照在人前,叫他們看見你們的好行為,便將榮耀歸給你們在天上的父。」(太5:16)

默想一:基督徒為什麼在世上要為主發光?因為黑暗的世界最需要的就是光,而基督是世上唯一的真光。主基督差遣我們進入世界就是爲祂發光。我們因著祂的新創造,在世上已經「是」光,不需要努力「作」光,我們的責任只是發揮光的功用。

默想二:你知道世人不容易信主的大部分原因是什麼?他們在基督徒的身上看不到活的見證:他們覺得若基督徒的行事為人、談話態度、品格表現、道德修養都不如非基督徒,那信主有什麼用?求聖靈光照,赦免我們的軟弱與虧欠,饒恕我們羞辱主的名。祈求神為我們造清潔的心,使我們裏面重新有正直的靈,活出主耶穌的榮美。

禱告:主耶穌,感謝祢所託付的光的使命。求祢幫助我,讓我在這混亂的世代中好像明光照耀,不再是作躲躲藏藏的基督徒,而是積極地為祢點燃生命的光,讓別人從我身上看見祢的榮耀。奉祢寶貴的聖名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven..” (Mat 5:16)

Meditation one: Why do Christians should shine the light in the world for Him? For this dark world does need the light most, and Christ is the only true light in this world. The Lord Christ sent us into the world to shine for Him. Because of His new creation, we have “been” the light in this world, and we do not need to try to “create” a light, our responsibility is only to reveal the meaning of the light.

Meditation two: Do you know the most popular cause that makes people in this world not so easy to believe in Lord? They do not see living testimony in Christians. They feel that if Christians’ behavior, character, and morality are inferior to non-Christians, what is the point of believing in Lord? Ask the Holy Spirit to shine, forgive our weakness and guilty conscience, forgive us for dishonoring the name of the Lord. Pray for God to create in me a pure heart and renew a steadfast spirit within me, and live out the glory of the Lord Jesus.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for discharging the trust of your mission of the light to me. Help me, let me shine in this chaotic generation so I am no longer a hidden Christian, but actively kindle the light of life for You, and let others see Your glory through me. Pray in Thy precious Holy Name. Amen!  


6 《今日靈修默想》:「你們要先求祂的國和祂的義,這些東西都要加給你們了。所以,不要為明天憂慮,因為明天自有明天的憂慮;一天的難處一天當就夠了。」(太6:33-34)

默想一:主耶穌為什麼不要我們為明天憂慮?因為我們所信的是昨日、今日、直到永遠的神。祂只要我們把「求神的國和祂的義」列為今天第一優先的事,也就是把認識神並與祂建立關係當作首要的事,那麼我們其餘的事,祂必負完全的責任,並且供應我們的需要。

默想二:你正在為許多事東擔心西擔心嗎?你的難處把你壓得透不過氣來嗎?轉向主耶穌吧!將你一切的憂慮卸給祂,因祂顧念你。你知道嗎?在你轉向祂之前,祂早就知道你的需要。因祂是“天天背負我們重擔的主,就是拯救我們的神”(詩68:19)想到這裡,我們當感謝讚美祂。

禱告:阿爸父神,感謝祢治理掌權的應許。求祢教導我,無論做什麼,都要先求祢的國和祢的義,讓祢的旨意自由行在地上如同行在天上。有祢掌管明天,我還憂慮什麼。求祢堅定我信而順服的決心,我願單單地仰望祢。奉耶穌基督的名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” (Mat 6:33-34)

Meditate one: Why does the Lord Jesus not want us to worry about tomorrow? Because the God we believe is the same yesterday and today and forever. As long as we place ” His kingdom and His righteousness ” as the first priority of today, that is, to know God and build relationships with Him as the primary thing, everything beyond He will be fully responsible and supply all our needs.

Meditation two: Are you worried about here and there and many miscellaneous things? Is your difficulty pressing you out of breath? Turn to the Lord Jesus! Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. Do you know that He knew your needs long before you turned to Him. For He is “the Lord who carries our burdens every day, the God Who Saves us” (Psalm 68:19) When we think of this, we should thank and praise Him.

Prayer: Abba Father in heaven, thank You for Your promise to govern Your power. Teach me, whatever I do, seek first Your kingdom and Your righteousness, and Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Why should I worry about tomorrow when You holds tomorrow. I want to look upon You alone and ask You to strengthen my determination to obey You. Pray in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen!  


7 《今日靈修默想》:「所以,凡聽見我這話就去行的,好比一個聰明人,把房子蓋在磐石上。雨淋、水沖、風吹,撞著那房子,房子總不倒塌,因為根基立在磐石上。」(太7:24-25)

默想一:你生命和生活的根基建立在什麼之上?任何來自人的保障絕對是靠不住的,唯有神的話(聖經)安定在天,永不動搖。聖經不是用來增加我們的知識,乃是用來改變我們的生命,豐富我們的生活內涵。讀聖經不是用來讀給人,而是讓神向我們說話。主說;「那聽了神的話語又遵守的人,才真是蒙福的!」(路11:28)

默想二:你是「聰明人」還是「無知人」?在神的眼中,差別就在你對神的話是否「聽而去行」。聽道而行道的人就像聰明人把信心建立在耶穌基督的磐石上,他們能經得起任何今生和來生的考驗。

禱告:主耶穌,感謝祢立好的根基。求祢塑造我有一顆會聽祢話的耳朵和樂意遵行祢旨意的心。讓我渴慕祢的話如鹿切慕溪水。我願成為祢順命的兒女。奉主耶穌寶貴的尊名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Everyone therefore that hears these words of mine, and doeth them, shall be likened unto a wise man, who built his house upon the rock: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon the rock. “(Mat 7:24-25)

Meditation one: What is the foundation of your spiritual and daily life? Any protection from mankind is absolutely not dependable, and only God’s Words (Bible) is settled in heaven and never be moved. The Bible is not used to increase our knowledge, but to change our lives and enrich the meaning of our lives. Reading the Bible is not to read to people, but to let God speak to us. The Lord said, ” The one who listens to the Word of God and abides by it is truly blessed! But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. ” (Luke 11:28)

Meditation two: Are you a “wise man” or a “foolish one”? In the eyes of God, the difference is in whether you “listen then do” to the Words of God. Those who hear and do the Words like wise men who build faith in the solid rock of Jesus Christ, and they can stand the test of this life and the life after.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for the foundation You established. Shape me to have an ear that listens to your Words and a heart that is willing to do Your will. Let me pant after Your Words every morning like a deer pants after the water brooks. I would like to be Your child of obedience. Pray in the precious name of the Lord Jesus. Amen!  


8 《今日靈修默想》:耶穌說:「你們這小信的人哪!為什麼膽怯呢?」於是起來斥責風和海,風和海就大大地平靜了(太8:26)

默想一:信耶穌就一定凡事一帆風順、事事亨通、不遭患難嗎?不見得!基督徒活在世上是不可能避免風與海,但請不要忘記,再恐怖的風暴,我們的主在我們的船上,祂必與我們同行。有掌管風浪的主與我們同在,我們無論在哪裡,都不需懼怕。

默想二:面對未知的將來,你有信心嗎?是大信心還是小信心?主耶穌責備的是小信的人,因他們對神話語的權能失信及動搖。大信心是單純地相信神的話,抓住神的應許,讓神的話改變環境,而不讓環境改變神的話。

禱告:主耶穌,感謝祢同在的保證。我不知道今年的路況如何,不論將會遇到外在或內在的風浪,我先把自己交託給祢,因祢已掌管我的明天。求祢加增我的信心,我願遵照祢的話過每一天的生活。奉祢寶貴的聖名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: Jesus said, ” You of little faith, why are you so afraid? Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.” (Mat 8:26)

Meditation one: Will belief in Jesus mean that everything be smooth and prosperous without trouble? It is not possible for Christians to live in this world without turbulence. Yet please do not forget that no matter how severe the storm is, our Lord is on our ship. He will be sailing together with us. The Lord who is in charge of the wind and waves is with us, and we need not fear wherever we go.

Meditation two: While facing the unknown future, do you have faith? Is it a great faith or a little faith? Jesus said sternly to the little faith believers for their distrust and falter toward the power of God’s Word. Great faith is simply to believe in God’s Word, to seize God’s promise, to let God’s Word change the environment, and not to let the environment change God’s Word. God sometimes tests our faith with a storm of permission so that we could enter into His abundance.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for Your assurance. I do not know the situation of this year’s pathway. whether I will encounter external or internal wind and waves, I first entrust myself to You because You are in charge of my tomorrow. Please strengthen my faith, and I would live every day in accordance with Your Words. Pray in Your precious holy name. Amen!  


9 《今日靈修默想》:「康健的人用不著醫生,有病的人才用得著。⋯我來,本不是召義人,乃是召罪人。」(太9:12-13)

默想一:最難接受福音的是怎樣的人?是那些自認是聰穎、成功、發達、健康的人,他們不承認自己是需要福音的人。病人承認有病就要醫生,罪人承認有罪就要救主。事實上,世上沒有一個義人。耶穌來,就是呼召那些認識自己是有罪的人。只有那些在神面前謙卑悔改的人才能得救。

默想二:你知道你是神所愛的對象嗎?祂知道你心靈的苦痛、體會你的掙扎、瞭解你的處境。但你得先把自己的自義、自滿、自傲放下,像小孩那樣單純地、虛心地來到主面前。帶著憂傷痛悔的心,神必不輕看。只要你轉向神,祂今天就要拯救你、釋放你、醫治你。

禱告:感謝神,因拯救的大能。我承認自己的渺小、有限、軟弱及無力,我需要祢的醫治,求祢差遣聖靈內住我心,成為我隨時的幫助。我既然是因靠聖靈得生,我也願在任何事上靠聖靈行事(加5:25)。奉耶穌基督的名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: ” It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. ⋯ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” (Mat 9:12-13)

Meditation one: What kind of people are the hardest to accept the gospel? It is those who identify themselves as successful, prosperous and healthy, who do not recognize themselves as those who need the gospel. Patients admit to being ill and ask for doctors. Sinners admit guilt and need the Savior. In fact, there is no righteous man in this world. Jesus came to call those who knew that they were sinners. Only those who repent in front of God can be saved.

Meditation two: Do you know that you are the object of God’s love? He knows the pain of your heart, feels your struggles, and understands your situation. But first you must put down your self-righteousness, complacency, and pride. Come to the Lord as a simple and humble child with a broken and contrite heart. God will not despise it, as long as you turn to God, Today, He will save you, release you, and heal you.

Prayer: Thank God for the power of His salvation. I confess that I am trivial, limited, weak and powerless. I need your healing, and send the Holy Spirit to dwell in my heart, and help me in my time of need. Since I live by the Spirit, let me keep in step with the Spirit in everything (Gal 5:25). Pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen! Come to the Lord as a simple and humble child with a broken and contrite heart. (Just combine the sentences into one 🙂  


10 《今日靈修默想》:「兩個麻雀不是賣一分銀子嗎?若是你們的父不許,一個也不能掉在地上;就是你們的頭髮也都被數過了。」(太10:29-30)

默想一:你知道你在天父眼中的價值嗎?若祂尚且不讓麻雀隨便死亡,更何況我們呢?神看重我們人到一個地步,為了拯救我們脫離死罪,祂犧牲了自己獨生兒子耶穌為我們死。因祂受的刑罰,我們得平安;因祂受的鞭傷,我們得醫治。

默想二:朋友,你正處在被人攻擊、陷害、離棄嗎?或正在被炒魷魚、被疾病折磨、被債務纏身、被壓力所困嗎?不要懼怕!請相信我們的阿爸父神,祂都知道。如果連我們的頭髮祂都數過了,這不就表示我們所遭遇的每一件事都不是偶然。是的,我們所遭遇的一切,都是祂所允許及安排,祂知道什麼是對我們有益的。

禱告:主耶穌,感謝祢的瞭解及對我無微不至的照顧。我遇到不順時,經常是怨天尤人,驚慌失措。求祢饒恕我的小信。主,求祢加增我的信心,我願順服祢的引導。奉祢的聖名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: ” Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. (Mat 10:29-30)

Meditate one: Do you know how much you are worth in the eyes of the heavenly Father? If He does not let sparrows die casually, how about us? God values us to a point where, in order to save us from death, He sacrificed His only begotten son Jesus to die for us. The punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed.

Meditation two: Friend, are you being attacked, framed, forsaken, or are you being fired, tortured by illness, troubled by debt, trapped by stress? Don’t be afraid! Please believe in our Abba Father, whom He knows all these. If even the hairs of all of our heads have been numbered, this does mean that everything we have encountered is not accidental. Yes, everything that has happened to us is what He has allowed and arranged, and He knows what is good for us.

Prayer: Father God, thank You for Your understanding and meticulous cares for me. When I encounter difficulties, I often complain and panic. Forgive my little faith. Lord, strengthen my faith, and I am willing to obey Your guidance. Pray in the Holy Name of the Lord Jesus. Amen!  


11 《在今日靈修默想》:「凡勞苦擔重擔的人,可以到我這裡來,我就使你們得安息。」(太11:28)

《Today’s spiritual meditation》”Jesus said, ‘If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.’” (John 8:31-32)

Meditation one: Are you truly a Christ’s disciple? Only if you always hold the teaching of Christ and are willing to do what He does, to say what He says, to love what He loves, to act what He acts. A true disciple surely always lives a life of true freedom.

Meditation two: What is the difference between the freedom of Christ and the freedom of Satan? Christ gives us “the Freedom from not being bound” because it comes from the truth, is converged by the truth, and nothing that is away from the truth can be conceded to. Freedom only exists when keeps on the path of the truth. “Where is the spirit of the Lord, and there is Freedom” (2Co3:17). Satan offers “a freedom of being controlled” It claims: You can do whatever you like or desire. It eventually makes you become a slave of sin, falling into the great deep of suffering, and cannot set yourself free.

Prayer: Dear Lord, thank You. For Your truth makes me free. Help me to keep my heart steadfast: I will not do anything that is away from Your truth, or against God’s will, or grieve the Holy Spirit. I only ask to reveal Your truth in me. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.



12《在今日靈修默想》: 「凡勞苦擔重擔的人,可以到我這裡來,我就使你們得安息。」(太11:28)

默想一:你正在被千斤重擔壓肩頭,以致活在壓力透不過氣來嗎?不論是因與罪惡掙扎所招來的重擔,或是因經濟壓力、工作不順、家庭不睦、子女不聽話、事奉無果效、人際關係緊張、因信仰遭排擠、或各種的重擔,主耶穌誠摯地邀請你,祂說:「朋友,你來!我要送你禮物,就是心靈的安息。」

默想二:怎樣的人才會接受耶穌的邀請?就是那些承認自己是勞苦擔重擔的人,並且相信只有耶穌能掙脫這些重擔的人。只要祢肯來,你就得安息。凡靠著主進到神面前的人,祂都能拯救到底,因為祂是長遠活著,替他們祈求(來7:25)

禱告:主耶穌,我感謝祢所賜的真安息。我承認自己常常為許多的事忙碌,甚至忙到不知道為什麼要忙,只知道越忙越不得安息。主!赦免我過去的莽撞和無知。今天,我願意接受祢的邀請,並珍惜每一刻,活在祢的安息裡。奉祢寶貴的名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. ” (Mat 11:28)

Meditate one: Are you being crushed by cumbersome loads on your shoulder so that you are living under pressure? Whether it is the burden of struggling with sin, or because of financial pressure, harsh job, discorded family, rebelling children, fruitless ministry, tense relationship, exclusion because of faith, or various kinds of burdens, The Lord Jesus cordially invite you, and He says, “Come, my friend! I will give you a gift, which is the rest of your spirit.”

Meditation two: What kind of people will accept Jesus ‘ invitation? It is those who admit that are weary and burdened, and that only Jesus can break free from these burdens. As long as you are willing to come, He will give you rest. Therefore He is able to save completely those who come to God through Him, because He always lives to intercede for them. (Heb 7:25)

Pray: Lord Jesus, I thank You for the true rest You give to me. I admit that I am often busy with many things, even too busy to know why I am busy. The busier I am, the more I am not able to rest. Lord, forgive me for my past recklessness and ignorance. Today, I am willing to accept Your invitation and cherish every moment and live in Your rest. Pray in Your precious name. Amen!  


13 《今日靈修默想》:耶穌說:「撒在好地上的,就是人聽道明白了,後來結實,有一百倍的,有六十倍的,有三十倍的。」(太13:23)

默想一:撒的種子同樣是神的道,為什麼長出來就有極大的差別?你的心田是哪一類型的土壤?是硬土?淺土?荊棘裡的土?還是好土?這完全在乎你對上帝話語的回應程度。就如今天讀了聖經後,你的領受豐富與否,在於你心中的回應。

默想二:好土結出榮耀的果子的秘訣是什麼?就是讀了神的話或聽了主的真道後,願意持守在誠實善良的心裡,並且忍耐著結實(路8:15)。聽道後樂意行道的,他的生命會結出豐盛的果子。

禱告:天父上帝,我感謝祢所賜的話語。祢的話語一解開,就發出亮光。祢說:「遵守祢的話,一心尋求祢的,那人便為有福!」(詩119:2)求祢幫助我,我願在藉著每日讀經與祢同行。不僅恭讀祢的話,而且活出來。奉耶穌基督的名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.” (Mat 13:23)

Meditation one: The sowed seeds are all the Word of God, so why do they grow out of great difference? What type of soil is your heart? Is it hard earth or shallow soil? Is it the earth among the thorns or the good soil? It all matters about how you respond to God’s Word. Just as how abundantly you have received after reading the Bible today, lies upon the response of your heart.

Meditation two: What is the secret of bearing glorious fruit out of a good soil? These are such as in an honest and good heart, having heard the Word, hold it fast, and bring forth fruit with patience. (Luke 8:15). Whoever listens to the Word and does do what it says, his life would bear a rich fruit.

Prayer: God heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Words. As soon as Your Word is untied, it shines. You said, “Blessed are those who keep His statutes and seek Him with all their heart!” (Psalm 119:2) Help me Lord, I would like to walk with You through the daily reading of the Bible. Not only to read Your Words, but also to live out. Pray in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen!  


14 《今日靈修默想》:只因見風甚大,就害怕,將要沉下去,便喊著說:「主啊,救我!」耶穌趕緊伸手拉住他(彼得),說:「你這小信的人哪,為什麼疑惑呢?」(太14:30-31)

默想一:你正處在疾病、患難、挫敗、痛苦的人生風浪嗎?正跌入死蔭的幽谷嗎?死亡線正逼近你嗎?轉向生命的主並呼求:「主啊,救我!」。主耶穌既然是我們生命的救主,也是我們生活的主,為什麼不轉向創造萬有並掌管歷史的主,祂能平靜風浪,也能施行拯救。祂應許:「凡到神面前來到人,必須信有神,且信祂賞賜那尋求祂的人」(來11:6b)

默想二:在跟隨基督的路上,你是靠人還是靠環境?你是靠自己還是靠神?向神尋求幫助不表明你是軟弱無用,而正是對神全然地信而順服。記得:「不是依靠勢力,不是依靠才能,乃是依靠萬軍之耶和華的靈,方能成事」(亞4:6)

禱告:主耶穌,感謝祢不嫌棄我這信心膽小的人。在遇到困難時,讓我的眼目單單地注目在祢得勝的身上。天父上帝已應許不會丟棄我爲孤兒,那我疑惑什麼?求袮加增我的信心。奉祢寶貴的聖名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “ “But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”” (Mat 14:30-31)

Meditation one: Are you in the midst of illness, tribulation, frustration, and grief in your life? Are you just falling into the darkest valley? Is the death approaching onto you? Turn to the Lord of life and cry out, “Lord, save me!” Since the Lord Jesus is the Savior of our lives and the Lord of our daily activities, why not turn to the Lord who created all and has been in charge of the entire history. He can calm the storm and bring salvation on the earth. He promised: “Anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” (Heb 11:6b)

Meditate two: On the way to follow Christ, are you on your own or on the environment? Do you rely on yourself or on God? Seeking help from God does not mean that you are weak or useless, but does mean to trust and obey Lord Jesus completely. Remember: “Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit” (Zec 4:6)

Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for not forsaking me as a person with a timid faith. Increase my faith and let my eyes fix only upon Your triumph when encounter difficulties. God heavenly Father has promised not to forsake me as an orphan. What else should I doubt about? Please raise my faith. Pray in Thy precious Holy Name. Amen!  


15 《今日靈修默想》:「這百姓用嘴唇尊敬我,心卻遠離我;他們將人的吩咐當作道理教導人,所以拜我也是枉然。」(太15:8-9)

默想一:只要每到主日崇拜在教會唱詩讚美神,聽講道又按時奉獻,就算是敬拜神了嗎?不是的,敬拜不單單是外表的儀式和禮儀,必須建立在人內心與神真實的關係上。口說「感謝主!」心卻遠離神是沒有意義的敬拜。他們就像浪子比喻中的大兒子,身體在家,心卻流浪在外。

默想二:神絕不會悅納的敬拜是什麼?就是那些「用嘴唇尊敬神,心卻遠離神」的人。他們只注意人怎麼講,卻不在乎神怎麼說,他們甚至高舉人,把人的吩咐當作真理,把人的看法當作神的啟示,這樣的敬拜是枉然的。我們千萬不要把人當神來拜,我們「當拜主我們獨一的真神,單要侍奉(敬拜)祂」(太4:10)

禱告:感謝天父,唯有祢是配得歌頌、敬拜、讚美的神。求祢教導我如何以心靈和誠實敬拜祢。在平時就看重與祢親密的關係。主!我願在任何地方及任何的時段,過一個敬虔而表裏一致的生活。奉耶穌基督的名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules” (Mat 15:8-9)

Meditation one: As long as continue singing hymns and praising God at church, giving offering and listening to the sermon, will consider as worshiping God? No, worship is not just the decrees of the outside, but must be based on the true relationship between the human heart and God. Verbally says, “Thank You, Lord!” Nevertheless there is no point for a worship that your heart is staying away from God. They are like the eldest son of the prodigal parable, the body is at home, but the heart is wandering away.

Meditation two: What type of worship that God will never be pleased? Those are people whose “lips respect God but heart stays away from God”. If we only pay attention to what people say, but do not care what God says, even exalt people, take people’s orders as truth, and regard people’s views as God’s promise to enlighten them, then our worship is in vain. We mustn’t worship people as god. We “Worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only” (Mat 4:10)

Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You. Only You are worthy of praise, worship, and sing the praises. Teach me how to worship You in the Spirit and in truth. We value the close relationship with you, so that my life, no matter when and where, is to live a godly worship life, is a life of respect and consistent inside and outward. Pray in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen!  


16 《今日靈修默想》:「若有人要跟從我,就當捨己,背起祂的十字架來跟從我。」(太16:24)

默想一:你是基督徒?還是門徒?當你接受主的救恩成為基督徒時,你就是基督的門徒。但耶穌呼召的,絕不是隨隨便便、馬馬虎虎、迷迷糊糊的基督徒,而是徹徹底底、實實在在的跟隨者,是敢與世界不同的門徒。他們是向罪和世界死,並甘心順服主的人。為基督的緣故,他們忠心地跟隨主,即使冒著生命的危險,永不退縮(no retreat)、永不後悔(no regret)、永不回頭(no return)。

默想二: 作基督的門徒容易嗎?主耶穌先講明這不是一條易路。祂要求所有跟隨基督的,必須捨棄自我為中心的人生觀、價值觀、世界觀。作主門徒是重價的,因為它呼召我們跟從主,是要使人付上生命為代價;它是重價的,因為它賜給人那唯一的真生命。祂應許:“凡為我喪掉生命的,必得著生命”(太16:25)。

禱告:親愛的恩主耶穌,感謝祢的呼召與使用。因祢愛的呼召,我願把餘下的光陰、精力、恩賜、才幹、金錢獻給祢用。求祢增強我跟隨祢的信心,日日更堅定。奉祢寶貴的聖名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” (Mat 16:24)

Meditation one: Are you a Christian or a disciple? When you accept the salvation of the Lord as a Christian, you are a disciple of Christ. But those whom called by Jesus are definitely not casual, sloppy, dazed Christians, but an inclusive, thorough follower, a disciple who dared to be different from the world. They are those who die to sin and the world and are willing to obey the Lord. For Christ’s sake, they followed the Lord faithfully, even at the risk of your life – no retreat, no regret, no return.

Meditation two: Is it easy to be a disciple of Christ? The Lord Jesus first stated that this was not an easy way. He demands that all those who follow Christ must abandon their self-centered life perspective, value systems, and world views. The disciple of the Lord is bought at a price, for it calls us to follow the Lord in order to make us pay our life as a price; it is bought at a price since it gives people the very only true life. He promised: “For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.” (Mat 16:25).

Prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for your calling and using me. For the calling of your love, I would like to dedicate the rest of my time, energy, gifts, talents, and wealth to you. Strengthen my faith to follow you, and become more firm day after day. Pray in Thy precious holy Name. Amen!  


17 《今日靈修默想》:「你們若有信心像一粒芥菜種,就是對這座山說:‘你從這邊挪到那邊’,它也必挪去,並且你們沒有一件不能做的事了。」(太17:20)

默想一:你正面對一個像排山倒海的大難題嗎?把你的眼目從這大難題轉向耶穌基督吧。即使最艱巨的工作或不可能的任務,在祂沒有難成的事,因祂是統管萬有的神。

默想二:你有「芥菜種」那樣的信心嗎?使不可能的事成為可能,不取決於你的信心夠不夠,而決定於你相信全能的上帝和耶穌基督的救恩。即使你的信心如芥菜種那麼小,只要你與那位讓耶穌死了復活的大能的上帝連結,透過祂就能成就各種大事。信心絕不是在頭腦裡的相信就可,也不是抽象的,而必須是建立在上帝的承諾上和聖經的真道上。

禱告:天父上帝,感謝祢所賜的信心。求祢幫助我,無論遇到大小事,懂得凡事交託給祢。讓我的信心扎根在祢那永不改變的應許上,永遠堅立。奉耶穌基督的聖名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (Mat 17:20)

Meditation one: Are you facing a big problem like a vast wave of tsunami? Turn your eyes from this vast problem to Jesus Christ. Even the most challenged work or impossible tasks, nothing is too hard for Him because He is the God rules over all.

Meditation two: Do you have a faith as a “mustard seed”? Making the impossible possible does not depend on whether you faith is enough or not, but on your belief in the salvation of Almighty God and Jesus Christ. Even if your faith is as small as a mustard seed, you can achieve all kinds of things through Him as long as you link to the Almighty God who made Jesus resurrected from the death. Faith is by no means an intellectual belief in mind, nor is it an abstract thought, but must be rooted upon the promise of God and the true word of the Bible.

Prayer: God our heavenly Father, thank You for giving me the faith. Help me, whatever encountered, we know to put trust in You. Let my faith be rooted in your unchanging promise, and uphold forever. Pray in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ. Amen!  


18 《今日靈修默想》:主耶穌說:「我實在告訴你們,你們若不回轉,變成小孩子的樣式,斷不得進天國」(太18:3)

默想一:你認為主耶穌以「變成小孩子的樣式」作為「進入天國」的條件容易嗎?不容易。耶穌所指的絕不是像小孩子那樣的天真無邪、無知單純、不能分辨好壞、身心不成熟。而是指人對神的信心要像小孩子那樣的信靠、順服、謙卑、受教、純真,而這些「樣式」是人在神面前謙卑、悔改而重生的結果。

默想二:要成為基督真正的門徒嗎?必須放下自大、自滿、自負、自義,降卑成為小孩子,承認自己靈性貧乏,時時刻刻跟從主,分分秒秒仰望主,以祂的旨意為依歸。主耶穌甘願卑微,存心順服神,所以神將祂升為至高(腓2:8-9)

禱告:親愛的天父上帝,感謝祢指示我如何進入祢榮耀的國度。求祢賜我像孩童般的信心,全然依靠祢;讓我的每一天,只為榮耀祢而活。奉耶穌基督得勝的名禱告。阿們。

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: Jesus said: “ Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Mat 18:3)

Meditation one: Do you think it is easy to do as Lord Jesus took “changing and becoming like little children “as a condition for “entering the Kingdom of Heaven”? It is not easy. Jesus is not referring to the children’s innocence, ignorance, naivety, inability to tell right from wrong, and the immaturity of the mind and body. It means that one’s faith in God is as sincere, obedient, humble, teachable, and pure like a child. These “likeness” are the result of humbleness, repentance, and rebirth in the presence of God.

Meditation two: Do you want to be a true disciple of Christ? You must lay down arrogance, complacency, conceit, self-righteousness, and be humble like a child, admit that you are spiritually poor. In His will, follow the Lord at all times, and fix eyes upon Lord every single moment. Jesus was willing to be humble and obedient to God, so God exalted Him to the highest (Phi 2:8-9)

Pray: Dear God heavenly Father, thank You for showing me on how to enter Your glorious kingdom. Give me the faith like a child, and trust solely on you. Let every day in my life be glorifying You only. Pray in the victorious Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.


19 《今日靈修默想》:「在人這是不能的,在神凡事都能!」(太19:26)

默想一:作好人好事就可以得永生嗎?不能!那從小就去教會又熟悉聖經總算得救吧?不可!這是耶穌對當時富有的少年官的答覆。我們得救是本乎恩,也因著信。這並不是出於自己,乃是神所賜的;也不是出於行為,免得有人自誇(弗2:8-9)。世人眼中的好人壞人在神的光中都是罪人,都是需要主寶血來潔淨的人。

默想二:為什麼聖經說財主進天國很難?耶穌不反對基督徒致富,只是要謹慎,免得財富變成我們的神,成為的永生的絆腳石。主忠告我們:「你的財寶在哪裡,你的心也在那裡。」(太6:21)

禱告:主耶穌,感謝祢讓我看到靠自己的行為得救是行不通的。更感謝祢讓我知道雖然自己不能,但在神凡事都能。求祢教導我如何專心仰賴祢,不可靠自己的小聰明。我願在一切所行的事上都認定祢,我相信祢的應許—必指引我的路。奉祢至尊的聖名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. (Mat 19:26)

Meditate one: Can one have eternal life by doing good things and being a good person? No, you can’t! Can you be saved by going to church from an early age and being familiar with the Bible? No, you can’t! This is what Jesus replied to the wealthy young man. For it is by grace we have been saved through faith. This is not from you; it is the gift of God; not by works, so that no one can boast (Eph 2:8-9). Worldly perspectives of good and bad people are all sinners in the light of God, are people who need the precious blood of the Lord to cleanse.

Meditation two: Why does the Bible say that it is difficult for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven? Jesus is not opposed to Christians getting wealthy, but to alert us not to turn wealth into our god and make into a stumbling block to the eternal life. The Lord cautions us, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Mat 6:21)

Pray: Lord Jesus, thank You for letting me understands that salvation through my own works is not going to work. Thank You more for letting me understand that although with myself it is impossible, but with God all things are possible. Teach me to trust in You with all my heart and lean not on my own reason. In all my ways submit to You, and I believe in Your promise – You will make my paths straight. Pray in Thy Holy Name of the highest. Amen!  

20 《今日靈修默想》:「正如人子來,不是要受人的服侍,乃是要服侍人,並且要捨命,作多人的贖價。」(太20:28)

默想一:基督徒服事人的形式一定要像主耶穌那樣地「作多人的贖價」嗎?我們不能,但我們的動機要效法祂的榜樣:不是要受人的服事,乃是要服事人。在神的國度裡,地位的高低不是根據你的統治、權利及範圍,乃是根據你事奉的心態。在神眼裡的「偉大」並不在於管轄人,乃在服事人。誰想要為大,就必先作僕人(用人),像基督那樣地甘心付代價。

默想二:對你而言,要「作眾人的僕人」最大的攔阻是什麼?耶穌本有神的形像,反倒虛己,存心順服,以致為我們的罪死在十字架上。祂的目的是幫助我們歸向神。我們也應當效法祂,以捨命的精神來服事人。

禱告:阿爸父神,感謝祢在耶穌基督裡的救恩。因著主耶穌的犧牲,我才能蒙恩;因著祂的呼召,我才能服事。求祢操練我,使我能以基督的心為心,並效法基督的謙卑。願我手中所做的一切,不僅成為眾人的賜福,在袮眼中蒙記念。奉耶穌基督的名禱告。阿們!


Today’s spiritual meditation》: “just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mat 20:28)

Meditation one: Does Christian serve people have to be in the same way as the Lord Jesus “as a ransom for many”? We cannot, but our motivations must follow His example: not to be served, but to serve. In the Kingdom of God, status is not based on your regime, power, and scope, but on the mentality of your ministry. The “greatness” in the eyes of God does not lie in the jurisdiction, but in the service of man. Whoever wants to be great must be a servant (housekeeper) first, and be as willing to pay the price as Christ.

Meditation two: What is the biggest obstacle for you to be a servant of all? Jesus, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God; rather, He made Himself nothing and humbled Himself by becoming obedient to death – even death on a cross! His purpose is to help us return to God. We should also emulate Him and serve people in the spirit of sacrificing our lives.

Prayer: Abba Father, thank You for Your salvation in Jesus Christ. It is because of the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus that I can be blessed. Because of His calling, I can serve. Ask You to train me so I can have the same mindset as Christ, Imitate the humility of Christ, and imitate the humbleness of Christ. May all that I have done in my hands not only be the blessings of all, but also be remembered in Your eyes. Pray in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen!  


21 《今日靈修默想》:「我的殿必稱為禱告的殿,你們倒使它成為賊窩了。」(太21:13)

默想一:今天教會最可悲的光景是什麼?光有表面富麗堂皇的建築物,裡面設備現代化,禮拜儀式莊嚴肅穆,敬拜內容豐富,但所敬拜的神不在當中。你知道為什麼嗎?人的熱鬧把上帝嚇跑了,或被人為因素把神的家變得烏煙瘴氣,不僅阻擋人敬拜,也無法讓人專心敬拜神。

默想二:主耶穌為什麼發怒?因為祂看到人踐踏神所看重的殿,把「我的殿」變成人的俱樂部、交易所、社交所。禱告的殿在叫賣、喧嚷聲中怎麼可能專心禱告?敬拜的殿在人的吵雜中怎麼能同心敬拜神?

禱告:主耶穌,感謝祢教導我如何看重敬拜。求你提醒我要常常為教會的真誠敬拜禱告,也時常提醒我,在個人生活上,藉著祢的話過聖潔的生活,使我成為聖靈居住的殿。讓我對祢的敬拜不是等到主日,而是每天就過著敬拜祢的生活。奉主耶穌的寶貴聖名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “My house will be called a house of prayer,’ but you are making it ‘a den of robbers.” (Mat 21:13)

Meditation one: What is the saddest scene of a church today? There is a magnificent building on the surface, a modernized equipment system, a solemn liturgy, an affluent worship, but the God people worshiped is not there. Do you know why? The buzz of people pushes God away, or makes the House of God a miasma by human elements. It not only prevents people from worshiping, but also makes people not be able to concentrate on worshiping God.

Meditation two: Why was the Lord Jesus angry? For He saw people trampling on the temple that God values and turning “My Temple” into a club, a trading market, or a social place. How can the Temple of Prayer concentrate on praying in the noise of hawking and uproar? How could people worship God with the same mind when people are clattering?

Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for teaching me how to treasure the worship. Remind me to pray often for the sincere worship of the church, and often remind me that living a holy life through Your Words in my personal life makes me a dwelling for the Holy Spirit. Let my worship of You not wait until the Sundays, but live a worship life every day. Pray in the precious Holy Name of the Lord Jesus. Amen!  


22 《今日靈修默想》:「你要盡心、盡性、盡意愛主—你的神。這是誡命中的第一,且是最大的。其次也相倣,就是要愛人如己。」(太22:37-39)

默想一:你有辦法達到「盡心、盡性、盡意愛主我們的神」的要求嗎?我們憑自己無法做得到。唯有經歷神愛的充滿、浸透、激勵時,我們自然地流露對祂的愛。我們愛,因為神先愛我們(約一4:19)。你體會神的愛有多少,你就愛祂有多少。

默想二:為什麼愛神的,就會懂得或容易「愛人如己」?因當他們被神的愛觸摸時,他們的生命被改變成可愛的新人,他們自然會愛神所愛的人。今天教會最有力的見證,不是言語,更不是外面的儀式、規條、規模,乃是教會有沒有彼此確實相愛。有愛的教會,自然就吸引人歸向主。

禱告:感謝神,因袮的愛在耶穌基督裡已彰顯得完美。我得承認自己會說愛祢,但要愛祢所愛的人就退縮了;我熱心地服事祢,但有時要服事不可愛的人就不容易。求祢赦免我,並為我造清潔的心,使我裡面重新有正直的靈。我願以全人、全心的愛來愛祢,並以祢的愛來愛人,包括我的家人、朋友及教會裡的弟兄姊妹。奉耶穌基督的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “’Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. ‘” (Mat 22:37-39)

Meditation one: Do you think you can fulfill the request of “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”? By ourselves we couldn’t do it. Only when we experienced the love of God, which filled, soaked, and energized us, can we then could naturally radiate our love to Him. We love, because God first loved us (1Jn 4:19). How much love you experienced in God is how much you love Him.

Meditation two: Why who loves God will know or be easy to “Love your neighbor as yourself.”? Because when they are touched by God’s love, their lives are transformed into lovable new selves, and they naturally love the people God loves. The most powerful testimony of the church today is not wording, nor the rituals, rules, and size, but whether people in church love one another or not. A loving church naturally attracts people to the Lord.

Prayer: Thank God for Your love that has revealed its perfection in Jesus Christ. I have to admit that I say that I love you, then set back when try to love those who love you. I serve you diligently, but often it is not easy to serve the unlovable ones. Forgive me, and create in me a pure heart, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. I will love You with the love of all myself and all my heart. Love people, including my families, friends and brothers and sisters in the church, with the love of Yours,. Pray in the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen!  


23 《今日靈修默想》:「凡高抬自己的,必被降卑;凡自己謙卑的,必被升高。」(太23:12 新譯本)

默想一:你知道服事神是很榮耀的託付嗎?但我們要時時刻刻地鑒察自己服事的動機。我們當記取教訓,「高抬自己」是撒但墮落的軌跡(賽14:12-14);「謙卑自己」是基督得榮耀的途徑。對耶穌而言,偉大是由謙卑的服事而來的。

默想二:你現在的所作所為、所追求的、所夢想的、所努力的是為自己的榮耀?還是為賜給你能力的神的榮耀?我們作基督門徒的,無論做什麼,不論在哪裡,我們當以謙卑服事神的心來服事人,包括服事弟兄中最小的一個。

禱告:感謝神,因袮藉著耶穌基督的謙卑,我得蒙拯救。曾幾何時,我因熱心事奉,或對聖經的一點認識而沾沾自喜;有時我會注重外表卻忽略內在的敬虔;有時我在乎別人的缺點卻不反省自己。求祢赦免我高傲的心態,我願在聖靈的光照中活出祢的謙遜、清心、柔和、榮美。奉耶穌基督的名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” (Mat 23:12)

Meditation one: Do you know that serving God is a glorious entrustment? Nevertheless, we have to examine the motivation of our service all the time. We have to remember the lesson of “raising ourselves high” is the tracking of Satan’s Fallen (Isa 14:12-14); Humble myself “is the path of Christ’s glory.” For Jesus, greatness came from serving in humbleness.

Meditation two: What you are working with now, what you are pursuing after, what you are dreaming of, what you are striving for, are they for your own glory? Or is it for the glory of the God who gives you the strength? We, who are disciples of Christ, regardless what we do and where we are, we should serve people with a humble heart as serving the Lord, including serving the least of the brothers.

Prayer: Thank God, through the humbleness of Jesus Christ, I am saved. From time to time, I was complacent because of diligent servings or acquiring some Bible knowledge. Sometimes I would pay attention to my appearance and overlook my inner godliness. Sometimes I cared about the inadequacy of others but did not examine them myself. Forgive my haughty heart, and I am willing to live out Your humbleness, purity, kindness, and glories in the light of the Holy Spirit. Pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!  


24 今日靈修默想》:「誰是忠心有見識的僕人,為主人所派,管理家裡的人,按時分糧給他們呢?主人來到,看見他這樣行,那僕人就有福了。」(太24:45-46)

默想一:誰是神所派的僕人?只有全時間服事主的傳道人嗎?不是的。凡是相信主用重價把我們從罪惡裡贖回的人,也就是所有的基督徒(林前6:20)。基督徒在神面前的身分,一面是神家裡的人,一面也是神的僕人;我們是屬於神的人,凡事為祂而活。神所求於我們這作祂僕人的,是要為祂忠心(林前4:1-2)

默想二:若主耶穌今天來,你準備好了嗎?你希望祂來看見你時,是稱許你,還是責備你?這完全在乎我們有沒有完成於祂的託付。冠冕不是賞給作大工的人,而是賞給完成主託付的人。

禱告:親愛的主耶穌,感謝祢應許為我們要再來的好消息。求袮教導我如何靠袮儆醒等候,愛惜光陰,敬虔度日,讓我的每一天活出與蒙召的恩相稱。主!我願在各樣的大小事上作袮忠心的好管家。凡我所行的,都是為彰顯袮的榮耀。奉祢寶貴的聖名祈求,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns.” (Mat 24:45-46)

Meditate one: Who is the servant that God has put in charge? Is it only the full time ministers who serve Lord? No, it is everyone who believes that Lord bought us back from sin at a price, that is, every Christian (1Co 6:20). In front of God, a Christian’s situation is both a member of His household and a servant of God. We are those who belong to God and live for Him in all things. What God has asked of us is to be His servant and to be faithful to Him (1Co 4:1-2)

Meditation two: If Jesus comes today, are you ready? When He sees you, do you wish Him to commend you, or to reprove you? It is totally depending on whether we have fulfilled Lord entrustment. The Crown is not for those who did great works, but for those who fulfilled the Lord’s entrustment.

Prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, Thank you for the good news that You promised to come back the second time. Teach me how I can always on the watch and be awaiting You, making the most of every opportunity and living a godly life. Let me, every day, live a life worthy of the calling I have received. Lord, I would like, in every aspects, to be Your faithful steward. All that I have done is to make Your glory known. I pray in Your precious Holy Name, Amen!  


25 《今日靈修默想》:「我實在告訴你們:這些事你們既做在我弟兄中一個最小的身上,就是做在我身上了。」(太25:40)

默想一:為什麼你做在弟兄中一個最小的身上是蒙神記念的事?因為你正做在耶穌眼裡所看重的“小弟兄”—他們是被一般人所忽略、丟棄、輕視、排擠的人,而這些人都是離我們不遠且能看得見的人。我們為他們所做的有像耶穌做在他們身上的一樣嗎?我們的善行不是得救的依據,但卻是擁有基督生命的證據。

默想二:耶穌今天在哪裡?在漂亮的教堂裡?在舒適的基督徒團契裡?在屬靈的禱告會裡?祂是在貧窮的社區裡,在病人的醫院,在囚犯的監牢裡,是在心靈破碎的人群裡。耶穌所在的地方,是我們服事神及服事人的地方。我們對耶穌的態度,是顯明在我們對祂的弟兄的態度上。

禱告:天父上帝,感謝祢指示我當為將來在哪裡度永恆而準備。求袮打開我屬靈的眼睛及耳朵,好讓我看見及聽見周圍人的需要,並樂意以行動關懷、服事、愛他們。奉耶穌基督的聖名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” (Mat 25:40)

Meditation one: Why God remembers the things you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters? Because the things you are doing for the “least brothers and sisters” whom Jesus treasures in His eyes – they are people who are ignored, abandoned, looked down, and isolated by most of others, and are close by and can be spotted. Have the things we done for them is as much as what Jesus did for them? Our good deeds are not the basis of salvation, but they are the testimony of Christ’s life.

Meditation two: Where is Jesus today? Is He inside a gorgeous church or a cozy Christian Fellowship? He is in a community of poor neighborhood, in a hospital filled with patients, in a prison with many inmates, in a crowd of many broken hearts and souls. The places where Jesus is, is also the places where we serve God and serve people. Our attitude toward Jesus is evident by our attitude toward His brothers.

Prayer: God our Heavenly Father, thank You for instructing me to be ready for where I will be forever. Please open my spiritual eyes and ears so that I can see and hear the needs of the people around me, and be joyful to care, serve, and love them. I pray in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ, Amen!  


26 今日靈修默想》:「總要儆醒禱告,免得入了迷惑。你們心靈固然願意,肉體卻軟弱了。」(太26:41)

默想一:我們人有辦法制服或擊敗靈界裡的撒但魔鬼嗎?別太天真了。牠比你想像的更狡猾、更陰險、更惡毒,牠知道「人心固然願意,肉體卻軟弱」的弊病,所以用盡各種招術迷惑人,設法滿足人的慾望,牠的目的不僅是要你跟從牠在黑暗裡生活,並且要你跟牠結盟試探神、反對神。

默想二:基督徒免受撒但迷惑並勝過撒但的方法是什麼?就是時刻地儆醒和禱告!儆醒是對每個被試探的可能提高警覺,敏感於撒但的陰謀詭計,並裝備好靈性來對抗牠。我們必須靠禱告支取神的能力,也唯有靠神就能得勝有餘。不禱告一天,等於墮落一天。無禱告的生命,是無能力的生命。

禱告:感謝神,因祢知道我的軟弱,更感謝祢賜下聖靈成為我隨時的幫助及力量。求祢指引我如何藉著每日的讀經禱告與袮同行,並過儆醒的生活。主!我不僅為自己的得勝生活禱告,也為別人過得勝的生活代求。奉主耶穌的名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Mat 26:41)

Meditation one: Do we have a way to subdue or defeat Satan demon in the spiritual world? Don’t be naïve. It is shrewder, more sinister, and more evil than you think. It knows the trouble associated with “The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak”, so uses all kinds of tricks to confuse people and try every way to satisfy their desires. It is not only to make you living in the darkness but also join together with Satan to test God and to go against God.

Meditation two: What is the means by which Christians can be free from Satan’s bewilderment and victory over Satan? It is to watch and pray all the time! Being watchful is to be alert in every possible temptation, to be sensitive to Satan’s intrigue, and to equip well to resist it. We must rely on prayer to receive God’s power, and only by God we can be more than conquerors. A day without prayer is a day of fallen. A life without prayer is a life of powerless.

Prayer: Thank God, for You know my weakness. Thank You even more that the Holy Spirit You bestowed onto me becomes my ever-present help and strength. Please guide me on how to walk with You every day through prayer and Bible reading, as well as live an watchful life. Lord, I pray not only for my victorious life, but also for the victorious lives of others. Pray in the Name of Lord Jesus. Amen! 


27 《今日靈修默想》:「我的神!我的神!為什麼離棄我?」(太27:46b)

默想一:耶穌是神,祂為什麼被釘在十字架?而且被釘在十字架上時大聲喊叫「我的神!我的神!為什麼離棄我?」因為在那時刻裡,整個世界的罪都壓在祂身心上。耶穌沒有罪,卻親自替我們承擔了一切罪,造成祂與神之間的分隔。被掛在十字架上的那一刻,祂最需要神的時候,神竟然撇棄祂。耶穌為我們的罪忍受孤單、冷落、丟棄的痛苦,這一切都是為了拯救世人包括你我。

默想二:你曾遇到大難或莫明其妙的事而大叫「為什麼?」嗎?主耶穌經歷過,因此祂了解你。此時此刻,你需要來到了解你並明白整個事件的阿爸父神面前,向祂傾心吐意。祂必定為你開路,也願意輔助你、攙扶你、牽引你,幫你擦乾眼淚。要尋求幫助,必須找對真正的幫助者。

禱告:阿爸父神,讚美祢在基督裡所彰顯的大愛。在世上有許多我不明瞭的事,但我相信袮的應許:「到我這裡來的,我總不丟棄他。」(約6:37)無論遇到任何事,求祢安靜我心,讓我不問「主,為什麼?」而是問“主,袮要我學習什麼?”我願全然降服於袮。奉耶穌基督的名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Mat 27:46b)

Meditation one: Jesus is God, why was He nailed on the cross? Why was He nailed on the cross and shouting, “My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?” Because at that moment, the sins of the entire world were crushed on His mind and body. Jesus was not guilty, but He took the burden of all our sins, which made Him separated from God. The moment He was hung on the cross, when He needed God the most, God forsook him. Jesus endured the pain of solitude, aloofness, and abandonment for our sins. All of these are for the purpose of saving the world, including you and me.

Meditation two: Have you been screaming “why” when encountered difficulties or inexplicable things? Jesus has been through it, so He understands. At those moments, you need to come to the Abba Father, Who knows you and understands the whole situation, and pour out a whisper of prayer. He will open the way to help you, accompany you, escort you, and wipe every tear from your eyes. To seek for help, you have to find a true helper.

Prayer: Abba Father, praise the great love You reveled in Christ. There are so many things in this world that I do not understand, but I believe Your promise: “whoever comes to me I will never drive away” (John 6:37). If anything happens, please give me a peaceful heart and, instead of asking “Lord, why?” but asking “Lord, what do You want me to learn?”. I am willing to surrender completely to You. Pray in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen!  


28 《今日靈修默想》:「所以,你們要去,使萬民作我的門徒,奉父、子、聖靈的名給他們施洗。凡我所吩咐你們的,都要教訓他們遵守,我就常與你們同在,直到世界的末了。」(太28:19-20)

默想一:主耶穌憑什麼命令我們「去」遵行傳福音的大使命?是憑著祂從死裡復活後,神把「天上地下所有的權柄賜給了祂。」(太28:18)祂是以萬王之王、萬主之主的身份差遣我們,我們能代表祂是何等榮耀的特權。我們當存感恩、謙卑、順服的心為祂使用,直到祂的再來。

默想二:什麼是你執行耶穌「大使命」的最大障礙?傳福音會越來越艱難,但請記得,復活的主既然差遣了我們,祂不會丟棄我們不管。相反地,祂會為我們負責到底。傳福音不必擔心攔阻多大,因我們的主必與我們同在、同工、同行。我們只要盡本分把福音傳出去,結果在神。

禱告:天父上帝,感謝祢託付的大使命。求你光照我,賜我愛靈魂的心,擴展我屬靈的視野,燃起我宣教心。人生有限,我願把握機會,為祢贏得萬民包括同胞、同族、同鄉、家人歸向祢。奉耶穌基督得勝的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Mat 28:19-20)

Meditation one: On what basis did Jesus order us to “go” to the Great Commission of evangelism? It was with His resurrection from the dead that God gave Him all authority in heaven and on earth (Mat 28:18). He has sent us in his capacity as King of kings and Lord of the Lords. We have such glorious privilege to represent Him. We should be used by Him with a heart of gratitude, humility, and obedience until His coming again.

Meditation two: What is your major obstacle to carry out Jesus’ Great Commission? It will be more and more challenge to preach the gospel, but remember that since the resurrected Lord has sent us, He will not abandon us. On the contrary, He will be responsible for us to the end. To preach gospel should not worry about how big the obstacle is, for our Lord will be with us, work with us, and walk with us. We just have to do our part to get the gospel out; God takes care of the rest.

Prayer: God Heavenly Father, thank You for the Great Commission You committed to me. Shine on me. Give me a soul-loving heart, enlarge my spiritual vision, and kindle my missionary passion. Life is short, I am willing to seize the opportunity for You to win the people around the world including people from the same country, race, hometown, and family. Pray in the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
