1《今日靈修默想》:「次日早晨,天未亮的時候,耶穌起來,到曠野地方去,在那裏禱告。」(可1:35)

默想一:你最近的禱告生活如何?一般說來,基督徒禱告的三大障礙是什麼?是忙!忙!忙!當年耶穌為神國忙碌,但祂很看重服事前到曠野與父神禱告交通,藉著與天父上帝的親近重新得力。有限的我們,不是更需要禱告支取能力嗎?在你最繁忙時,是你更需要禱告的時候;在你不喜歡禱告時,是你正需要禱告的時候。沒有禱告的生活,不要想有果效的服事,更不要想神為你作更大的事。

默想二:避免掉入試探引誘並脫離兇惡的最佳防備是什麼?儆醒禱告!要在屬靈的爭戰上得勝有餘嗎?迫切禱告!禱告不是「備胎」,遇到困難就呼求,而是「方向盤」,指示我們如何走正路。記得,沒有禱告,就不要摸聖工。

禱告:主耶穌,感謝祢作我禱告的榜樣。求祢賜我智慧及毅力,使我珍惜與祢有固定的禱告時光。主,我願為家庭、團契、教會、國家成為守望禱告的人。奉祢的聖名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.” (Mar 1:35)

Meditation one: How was your recent prayer life? Generally speaking, what are the three most common obstacles that prevented Christians from praying? They are busy and busy and busy! At that time Jesus was busy for the Kingdom of God, but He treasured the ministry and went to a solitary place to pray and talk to God. Through drawing near to God Heavenly Father, He renewed His strength. We are very limited; don’t we have more needs to be provided through prayers? Your busiest moment is the time you need to pray more. When you don’t feel like to pray, it is the point you do need to pray. Life without prayer, ministry cannot be fruitful. Therefore, do not expect God will do greater things for you without your praying.

Meditation two: What is the best defense which can lead us not falling into temptation and deliver us from the evil one? Pray with sober mind! Want to be victorious in a spiritual battle? Pray fervently! Prayer is not a “spare tire” which cries out only in the state of difficulties, but a “steeling wheel” that navigates us toward the right way. Remember; don’t touch the holy ministry without praying.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for setting an example for my prayers. Please give me wisdom and perseverance, so that I can cherish consistent prayer times with You. Lord, I am willing to be a person who watches and prays for families, fellowships, Churches, and countries. Pray in Your Holy Name, Amen!  


2 《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。」(可2:17)

默想一:你認識你自己嗎?真正認識自己的人,就是承認自己是需要主救恩的人。病人必須承認自己有病,才會去接受醫生的治療。酗酒的必須承認自己是酒鬼,才會去戒酒中心尋求幫助。同樣地,罪人必須承認自己有罪,才會接受主的救恩。就如浪子在罪中打滾後的醒悟,他說:“我要起來,到我父親那裡去,向他說:‘父親!我得罪了天,又得罪了你。’”於是起來往父親那裡去(路15:17-20)。

默想二:你想知道什麼是神的奇異恩典嗎?先放下「自以為健康」及「自以為義」的驕傲心態。我們常常把與人的互相比較來證明自己有多好,證明自己的良善,哪裡知道,神不是拿你和別人比較,神是拿祂的標準來衡量你。神就是光,在祂毫無黑暗。早日認識自己的有限,就能早日脫離自以為是的自傲心態。主耶穌來,是尋找拯救失喪的人,就是那些承認自己心靈污穢、迷失、痛苦、絕望的人。當我們存謙卑的心來到主耶穌面前,祂必拯救你到底並賜你平安。

禱告:天父上帝,我感謝袮的救恩!像我這樣裡外都是罪的人,竟然蒙袮拯救;我感謝袮洗淨我一切的污穢,醫治我心靈的各種疾病;我感謝祢的呼召,我何等卑微,竟然蒙祢揀選及使用。求祢扶持我,讓我每一天的行事為人與蒙召的恩相稱,榮耀袮的名。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. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” (Mar 2:17)

Meditation one: Do you know yourself? A person who truly knows self will admit that he/she is the one who needs Lord’s salvation. A patient must admit that he/she is sick before looking for doctor’s treatment. An alcoholic must admit that he/she is an alcoholic before going to a rehabilitation center for help. In the same way, sinners must confess their sins or will not accept Lord’s salvation. Just as the prodigal son woke up after deteriorating in the sin. He said, ” I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.’” Thereupon he set out and went to his father (Luke 15:17-20).

Meditation two: Do you want to know what does God’s amazing grace mean? Let us first put down the pride of “healthy in my own eyes” and “self-righteousness”. We often prove how nice and how good we are by comparing against others. We may ever realize that God does not compare you against others but justify you by His own measures. God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all. The sooner one realizes his/her limitation; the sooner one can drive away from the mind of pride. Jesus came to seek and to save the lost who admitted that their hearts were corrupt, lost, miserable, and desperate. When we come to the Lord Jesus with humble hearts, He will save you and give you peace.

Prayer: God Heavenly Father, I thank You for the salvation! A person like me who was sinful throughout was saved by You; I thank You for purifying all my sins and healing all my spiritual maladies. I thank You for your calling. I am so humiliated, yet I was chosen and used by You. Sustain me, and let me live a life worthy of the calling I have received. Pray in the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen!  


3 《今日靈修默想》:「凡遵行神旨意的人,就是我的弟兄姊妹和母親了。」(可3:35)

默想一:你與主耶穌建立了親密的屬靈關係嗎?條件是你必須樂意遵行神的話並活在神的旨意裡。基督徒因同活在神的國度裡,我們與主內弟兄姊妹的屬靈關係在聖靈的幫助下自然會超越短暫的骨肉或血緣的關係。基督徒若離開了神,我們跟弟兄姐妹在靈裡的相交就變成表面化,毫無意義。

默想二:你最近跟弟兄姊妹的關係如何?在這日漸冷漠的世代裡,你怎樣看待神家裡的人呢?越來越冷淡還是親熱?越來越疏遠還是親近?耶穌看所有遵行神旨意的人都是祂家的人。你為弟兄中一個最小的作了什麼?如果主耶穌也為出賣祂的人洗腳,我們對神家的人還有偏待的嗎?我們愛,因為神先愛我們。

禱告:親愛的父神,感謝祢在基督裡所帶來的新關係。祢是父神旨意的中心,凡遵行神旨意的就享有在神家裡的福份。因著祢的關係,我才能與神有屬靈的父子(女)關係,也才能與弟兄姊妹有屬靈的親密關係。求祢賜我愛的力量,我願與神家裡的人同心、同工及同行,直到走完天路。奉主耶穌的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.” (Mar 3:35)

Meditation one: Have you established a close spiritual relationship with the Lord Jesus? The state is that you must be willing to obey God’s Words and live in God’s will. Because Christians live in the Kingdom of God, with the help of the Holy Spirit, our spiritual relationship with our brothers and sisters in the Lord will naturally transcend the brief relationships among families and relatives. If Christians become apart from God, our spiritual fellowship with our brothers and sisters will turn into superficial and meaningless.

Meditation two: How have you been with your brothers and sisters lately? How do you treat the people in God’s family in the present days of fading apathy? Do we become colder or warmer or distant or closer? Jesus views all those who obey God’s will as His families. What have you done for the least of the brothers? If Jesus even washed the feet of the person who betrayed Him, are we still biased against the people of the House of God? We love, because God first loved us.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, Thank You for the new relationship You have brought in Christ. You are the center of the will of the Father, and all who obey the will of God can enjoy the blessing of the House of God. Because of You, I can have a father-son (daughter) relationship with God, and can have a spiritual relationship with brothers and sisters. Please give me the power of love, I am willing to be with the people of God’s family, of the same mind, to work and walk together until completion the journey toward heaven. Pray in the Name of Lord Jesus, Amen!  


4 《今日靈修默想》:耶穌醒了,斥責風,向海說:「住了吧!靜了吧!」風就止住,大大地平靜了。耶穌對他們說:「為什麼膽怯,你們還沒有信心嗎?」(可4:39-40)

默想一:你的人生正面臨「忽然起了暴風」像一艘船正在下沉嗎?現在不是你分析暴風的強度、破壞力如何,而是及時地轉向耶穌基督並依靠祂的時刻。唯有祂是在風浪中與你同在的主,也只有祂能使風平浪靜,賜你真正的平安。因為祂是天地萬物的主,一切都聽命於祂。

默想二:你信心的根基穩固嗎?只有經歷過風暴、苦難、打擊、試煉的考驗才知道信心的可貴。信心是不憑感覺,不靠自己,不依賴人,更不看環境,只單單地依靠主,抓住主的話,聽從主的話。

禱告:阿爸父神,感謝祢成為我隨時的幫助。我知道人生在世不可能避免苦難、危險、失敗,但我相信既然我是袮的兒女,袮絕不會丟棄我為孤兒。有祢的同在,我還怕什麼。有祢在身旁,我甚至能對著風浪傲笑。主啊,我承認有時我的信心不足,求祢加增我的信心。奉主耶穌的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” (Mar 4:39-40)

Meditation one: Is your life facing a “furious squall came up” like a sinking boat? It is not the time for you to analyze the intensity and destructive power of the squall, but the very moment to turn to Jesus Christ and trust in Him. Only He is the Lord who is with you in the squall, and only He can die down the squall and give you true peace. For He is the Lord of all things in heaven and earth and all things obey Him.

Meditation two: Is the foundation of your faith firm? Only through the trials of squall, suffering, bashes, we can then realize the precious of faith. Faith is not a feeling, does not depend on self, does not rely on people, does not look into the environment, but solely trust in Lord. Seize the Word of the Lord and obey the Word of the Lord.

Prayer: Abba Father, thank You for being my help in my time of need. I know that life in this world is not possible to preclude hardship, danger, failure, but I believe that since I am Your child, You will not leave me as orphans. With Your presence, what am I afraid of? With You by my side, I can even laugh at the squall. Lord, I admit that sometimes my faith is not adequate, please help me to increase my faith. Pray in the Name of Lord Jesus, Amen!  


5 《今日靈修默想》:耶穌說:「你回家去,到你的親屬那裏,將主為你所做的是何等大的事,是怎樣憐憫你,都告訴他們。」(可 5:19 )

默想一:當你嚐到信主的救恩之樂時,你想過要跟自己的家人分享嗎?跟家人傳福音有時真的很難,但你可藉著自己生命的改變來影響他們,讓他們在你身上看到基督。關心家人的靈魂得救,就得把握時機,帶領他們信主是愛主最真實的回應,也是愛家人最具體行動。

默想二:向親屬傳福音最大的障礙是什麼?自己沒有好的見證!見證不是講自己多棒,也不是讓他們羨慕你作基督徒的偉大及成功,而是見證自耶穌來住在你心,你的生命有了奇妙的改變,喜樂滿溢,心靈平安。記得,家人信靠主不是因你的口才、學識、能力,而是你平日的代禱及生活見證。

禱告:感謝神,因我如今成了何等的人,都因蒙袮的恩才成的。在今天的世代要讓基督成為一家之主是很不容易的。靠我自己不能,但我相信在祢沒有難成的事。求祢光照我,讓我的舉止動態、心中所存的意念、口中所說的每一句話都在聖靈的恩膏下蒙袮賜福。奉耶穌基督的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: Jesus said, “Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” (Mar 5:19)

Meditation one: When you experienced the joy of the Lord’s salvation, do you want to share it with your families? It is often hard to preach the gospel to your families, but you can inspire them through the change of your life and let them see Christ in you. Try to seize every opportunity if you want to save the souls of your family members. To lead them to Christ is the most genuine response of loving Lord, and the most specific action of loving family members.

Meditation two: What is the greatest obstacle to block you from preaching gospel to relatives? It is because of lacking a good testimony! The testimony is not to boast your integrity, nor to let them envy the greatness and success of you as a Christian, but to witness that Jesus has lived in your heart, that your life expressed a miraculous change filled with overflowing joy and peaceful mind. Remember, when family members accept Lord not because of your eloquence, knowledge, and aptitude, but because of your daily prayers and life testimonies.

Prayer: Thank God, by Your grace I am what I am. In today’s generation it is not easy to make Christ the head of the household. I can’t do it on my own, but I believe nothing is too hard for You. Shine on me, and let my conduct, the thoughts in my heart, and every word that I say be blessed under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Pray in the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen!


6 《今日靈修默想》:耶穌連忙對他們說:“你們放心,是我,不要怕”(可6:50)

默想一: 基督徒憑什麼在遇到大災大難、大風大浪時,不用害怕驚恐?因為我們是神的兒女,神是我們的阿爸父神。天父會不顧自己的孩子嗎?絕對不會的,我們不是孤兒,我們是擁有至高真神兒子的尊貴身份,我們可以放心。倚靠祂的人,永不羞愧。問題是你與這位真神建立了父與子的關係嗎?

默想二:在人生的大海裡,人能避過風浪嗎?不可能!但基督徒在遇到大風浪時,可以照樣經歷風雨中的寧靜。因主耶穌說:“你們放心,是我,不要怕”。風浪是神給的試煉,我們可以害怕,但在害怕中會看到盼望。事實上,神經常是以“風暴”來磨練我們的信心,風暴往往為我們列出一張“清單”,好讓我們知道什麼地方必須被對付,使我們轉向神,藉著祂的塑造使我們更像基督。

禱告:全能的父上帝,感謝袮成為我盼望的所在。也謝謝成為我堅固的磐石。在世上有許多的苦難,但袮說我們可以放心,因為袮已經勝過了這世界。求袮指引我如何走天路,不僅堅心倚賴你,而且要單單地依靠你。奉耶穌基督的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” (Mar 6:50)

Meditation one: What is the basis for a Christian who is not frightened when faced catastrophic disaster, horrific wind and waves? Because we are the children of God, God is our Abba Father. Will our Heavenly Father not take care of his own children? This is absolutely not true. We are not alone, we are the honored children of the God Most High. We can rest assured. One who finds strength in Him will never be ashamed. The question is, have you established a relationship with God as Father and son?

Meditation two: In the sea of our life, can one get away from any squall? It is not possible! But Christians can have the stillness in the middle of a storm when they encounter a squall. Because Jesus said: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” Squalls are God’s trials, we can be fearful, but in fear we see hope. In fact, God often grinds our faith with a “squall”, and the squall tends to reveal an “inventory list” for us so that we know where we need to be sculpted. Through His molding, we can turn to God and make us more like Christ.

Prayer: Father the Almighty God, thank You for being my hope. And thank You for being the rock of my firmness. There are so many hardships in this world, but You said that we can rest assured because you have overcome the world. Ask You to guide me on how to walk the heavenly journey, not only to lean onto you, but also to trust in you only. Pray in the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen!


7 《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(規條)當作道理教導人,所以拜我也是枉然。」(可7:6-7)

默想一:每到主日,你到教會的心境如何?是帶著歡慶的心還是抱著勉強的心? 是帶著渴慕的心還是習慣性的到教會?是帶著朝見神的心還是要去找朋友的心去?神是聖潔的,人非聖潔,沒有人能見主,所以當以聖潔的裝飾敬拜神(詩96:9)。神是配得你我永遠的歌頌、讚美、奉獻。

默想二:天父上帝在尋找怎樣的人來敬拜祂?就是那用心靈按真理敬拜祂的人(約4:23)神是監察人心的,祂要的敬拜,不是徒有敬拜的外表,卻沒有敬拜的實際;祂也不要我們的人在教會,心卻在教會流浪,衪悅納的乃是內裡誠實的敬拜。今天的教會要防患口是心非的人,因為他們以人的遺傳或規條取代聖經的真理;以人的意見代替神的旨意;以人的看法代替神的啟示。神所要的不是我們獻上多少的祭物,而是憂傷痛悔的心,就是爲罪深覺不配而悔改的心。

禱告:阿爸父神,感謝祢讓我成為敬拜祢的子民。求祢指教我不僅尊祢的主日爲聖,珍惜每一個主日的敬拜,也讓我在任何的崗位上,無論做什麼,我願以真誠敬拜袮的心來過每一天的生活。奉主耶穌的聖名禱告,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.” (Mar 7: 6-7)

Meditation one: Every Sunday, what is your mood when go to church? Is it with a joyful heart or with an impassive heart? Is it with a longing heart or as a weekly routine to be at church? Is it with a heart to come before God or to meet a friend? God is holy and we are not, so no one can see the Lord; thus we should worship the Lord in the splendor of His holiness (Psalm 96:9). God is worthy of you and I to praise and to dedicate to.

Meditation two: Who is the kind of worshipers the God Heavenly Father seeks? It is the man who worships Him in the Spirit and in truth (John 4:23). God searches our hearts. What He seeks is not the facade of a worship, but the truthfulness of the worship. He does not want our bodies to be physically inside a church while our minds are wondering around. What is pleasing to Him is the honest worship. Today’s churches need to precaution on people with duplicity, because they substitute the truth of the Bible with world tradition or rules; to replace God’s will with people’s opinions; and to replace God’s revelation with men’s view. What God wants from us is not how much sacrifice we offer, but a broken and contrite heart, a heart that feels unworthy and repentant for sin.

Prayer: Abba Father, thank You for making me a person who worships You. Teach me not only to honor the Lord’s Day, but also to cherish every Sunday’s worship. Regardless of what I do, I want to live my daily life with a sincere heart to worship You. Pray in the Holy Name of the Lord Jesus, Amen.


8 《今日靈修默想》:主耶穌說:「人就是賺得全世界,賠上自己的生命,有什麼益處呢?人還能拿什麼換生命呢?」(可8:36-37)

默想一:你人生的投資放在哪裡?是專注於今生還是在永恆?是放在這世界還是放在天國?你即使賺得全世界卻賠上自己的生命值得嗎?千萬不要把生命的價值放在錯誤的位置上。世界只有在人還活著的時候,才有用處;但人不能用世界來換取生命,因此生命比世界更寶貴。

默想二:你要如何善用短暫的生命?緊緊地跟隨主!把握機會把有限的生命為主使用。跟隨主是要付上「捨己」,必須對自己的自我中心說「不」;同時要對神呼召我們「背起十字架」說「是」。你可能為了基督的緣故要犧牲並付出,但很上算,因為你必得著寶貴而永恆的生命。

禱告:主耶穌,感謝祢的呼召。祢所量給我的十字架雖然沈重卻不重過祢的恩典;雖然十字架是一條窄路,卻是通往永生之路;雖然要失去世上的享受,卻得著永恆裡的一切豐盛。求祢賜我智慧,讓我每日活在祢的光中,行在祢的旨意裡。奉祢的名禱告,阿們。

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?” (Mar 8:36-37)

Meditation one: Where is your investment in your life? Is it focused on flesh or eternity? Is it in this world or in the Kingdom of Heaven? Is it worthy for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Never put the value of life in the wrong place. The world is meaningful only when people are still alive; but man cannot exchange the world for soul. Therefore soul is more precious than the world.

Meditation two: How do you make good use of your brief life? Closely follow the Lord! Seize the opportunity to let the limited life be used by the Lord. To follow the Lord is to “deny oneself “, to say “no” to self-centered mind, to say “yes” to God’s calling of “taking up the cross”. You may sacrifice and giveaway for the sake of Christ. This is worthy, for you will receive the precious life of eternity.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for Your calling. The cross You have given me is not heavier than Your grace; Though the cross is a narrow way, but a path to the eternal life. While giving away this world’s pleasure, I instead receive the abundant in eternity. Grant me wisdom, let me live in Your light every day, in Thy will. Pray in Your Name, Amen.


9 《今日靈修默想》:「鹽本是好的,若失了味,可用什麼叫它再鹹呢?你們裡頭應當有鹽,彼此和睦。」(可9:50)

默想一:基督徒活在世上的功用是什麼?不是要「作」鹽,而「是」鹽,是因信在基督裡做成的。「鹽」必須是「鹹的鹽」才有功效。有用的鹽不僅對世界的敗壞有「防腐」的作用,也有使人「和睦」的效能。

默想二:如何使你在世上的生命成為別人的祝福?要像鹽一樣,先溶解自己,犧牲自己,才能給人味道;燃燒自己,才能照亮別人。也唯有當我們裡頭的生命被火當鹽醃過並得潔淨的人,才能在基督裡確實地彼此相愛、和睦相處。

禱告:天父上帝,感謝祢賜給我活在世上的功用。求祢幫助我如何在世上過分別為聖的生活,絕不效法這世界的潮流。無論我在哪裡,求祢使用我。讓我的生命散發出基督的光、愛、聖潔、和平、公義,使世人認識祢。奉耶穌基督寶貴的名禱告,阿們。

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt among yourselves, and be at peace with each other.” (Mar 9:50)

Meditation one: While living in this world, a Christian should function like what? Not to “act as” salt, but “to be” salt. This is because of the faith that was accomplished in Christ. A “salt” must be a “salty salt” to be effective. Useful salt not only have the “antiseptic” effect on this corruptive world, but also have a function of “harmonizing” among the peoples.

Meditation two: How to make your daily life becomes a blessing of others? You need to be like a salt. Before giving out the taste, you dissolve and sacrifice yourself. Sacrifice yourself as a living sacrifice in order to illuminate others. It is only when our lives inside us are cleaned by salting like a fire, then we may indeed love one another and be in harmony in Christ.

Prayer: God Heavenly Father, thank You for giving me the function of living in this world. Please help me to learn how to live a godly life in this world, and not to chase the worldly vogue. Wherever I am, please use me. Let my life reflect the light, the love, the holiness, the peace, and the righteousness of Christ to make the world know You. Pray in the precious Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.  


10 《今日靈修默想》:耶穌看著他(求永生的富有少年官),就愛他,對他說:「你還缺少一件,去變賣你所有的,分給窮人,就必有財寶在天上;你還要跟從我。」(可10:21)

默想一:主耶穌不要我們賺錢致富嗎?不是的。那祂真要每一個信徒都把自己所有的一切變賣嗎?也不是。得救不能以變賣所有來換取,永生也不是行多少善事功德就能得著。而是不要讓錢財成為你進入天國的絆腳石—妨礙你愛主的心,攔阻你專心跟隨主,影響你的服事,破壞你與神、與人與家人的關係。

默想二:主為什麼要富有的少年官變賣所有的分給窮人?因為那是「愛人如己」的具體表現。主為什麼還要少年官進一步地「跟從主」?因為那是愛主最具體的行動。如果主耶穌今天呼召你「跟從我!」你願意歡然地回應主的呼召嗎?還是像那少年官「憂憂愁愁地」走回世界的路?可惜他從永生的門擦身而過,一生悔恨連連。

禱告:親愛的天父上帝,感謝祢在基督裡所賜的永生。也感謝袮的呼召,讓我有份於走十字架的窄路。雖然天路崎嶇難行,許多攔阻,充滿挑戰,但我已經決定,要跟隨袮;雖無人同走,我仍要跟隨袮。為了專一地跟隨袮,我已決定把十字架放在前頭,世界在背後,而且永不回頭。奉耶穌基督的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Jesus looked at him and loved him. ‘One thing you lack,’ he said. ‘Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.’” (Mar 10:21)

Meditation one: Does Jesus want us not to be wealthy financially? No, not true. Does He really want every believer to sell everything he/she has? No, not true either. Salvation cannot be merited by selling everything, and eternal life cannot be earned through good deeds. Nevertheless, the way to the Kingdom of Heaven should not be blocked by your wealth – block your heart from loving the Lord, prevent you from following the Lord, influence you from serving Him, and ruin you from having good relationship with God, people, and families.

Meditation two: Why should the wealthy young man sell everything and give to the poor? Because it is a true act of “love your neighbor as yourself “. Why does the Lord furthermore ask the young man to “follow me”? The reason is that is a very truthful action of loving the Lord. If Jesus calls you today, “Follow me!” are you joyfully willing to respond to the call of the Lord? Or is it like the young man who sadly went back to the world? It is a pity that he missed the door of eternal life, and his whole life would be remorseful.

Prayer: Dear God Heavenly Father, thank You for giving me the eternal life in Christ. Also thank You for Your calling, which allows me to have the privilege to walk the narrow path of the cross. Although the heavenly path is rugged, filled with confrontation and challenges, but I have decided to follow You; even no one accompanies me, I still want to follow You. For the sake of following You, I have decided to place the cross ahead, the world behind, and never turn back. Pray in the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen!  


11 《今日靈修默想》:「凡你們禱告祈求的,無論是什麼,只要信是得著的,就必得著。」(可11:24)

默想一: 神真的那麼大方嗎?祂說無論禱告什麼,祂都垂聽?是的!但必須是在你與神並與人的關係和好的前提下,禱告才能在聖靈的恩膏下自然地帶出能力。我們相信神垂聽,不是我們感覺上信心有多大,而是確信在神面前所禱告的,不僅是神的美意,也是神所要作的。

默想二:你正面臨大難當頭,大到無法喘氣,讓你驚慌失措嗎?放下自己的努力,謙卑地來到主耶穌面前吧!凡靠著祂進到神面前的人,祂都能拯救到底,因為祂是長遠活著,替我們祈求(來7:25)。

禱告:天父上帝,感謝袮的應許:“你們若常在我裡面,我的話也常在你們裡面;凡你們所願意的,祈求就給你們成就。”(約15:7)讓我看重每天與袮的關係,是常在袮裡面。因為離了你,我就不能做什麼。求袮加添我信心,我願照袮的心意過儆醒禱告的生活,奉主耶穌寶貴的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” (Mar 11:24)

Meditation one: Is God really so generous? Does He say that He listens whatever we ask for in prayer? Yes, but it must be on the premise that you have reconciled with God and with people, then the prayer can naturally bring out power under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. We believe that whether God will listen to a prayer is not depending upon our feeling about our faith, but a true trust that the prayer is in line with God’s good purpose and divine will.

Meditation two: Are you facing a major disaster that makes you stressed out and panic? Let put down your struggle and humbly come before Lord Jesus! 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).

Prayer: God Heavenly Father, thank You for Your promise: “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.” (Jhn 15:7) Let me value my daily relationship with You; a relationship makes me always remain in You. Without You, I cannot do much. Ask You to increase my Faith. I am willing to follow Your will and live a life of watch and prayer. Pray in the precious Name of Lord Jesus, Amen!  


12 《今日靈修默想》:「神不是死人的神,乃是活人的神。」(可12:27)

默想一:相信主耶穌是指什麼?相信祂過去的作為,祂是神所差來的獨生子,為我們的罪被釘死在十字架上,並在第三天從死裡復活的神;也深信祂現在的作為,祂是昔在、今在、永在的神;更確信祂將來的作為,祂是為我們還要再來的神。信仰的肯定對人生的態度、價值、目的、意義是有巨大的影響,能幫助你坦然地面對每一天,使你的生活充滿盼望。

默想二:既然你所深信的是復活的主,祂是活人的神,那你跟祂的關係如何?你經常以禱告跟祂交通嗎?你渴慕讀經來親近祂嗎?你以感恩的心事奉祂嗎?你專心地倚靠祂嗎?你在凡事上讓祂居首位嗎?在生活上尊榮祂嗎?

禱告:主,我的神!我感謝祢所賜的活潑盼望。因祢的永存、永活、永在,我不再懼怕任何的挑戰,即使經過死蔭的幽谷,再惡劣的環境都不能擊倒我對祢的信心。求祢指引我,無論到哪裡,總叫祢在我身上照常顯大。奉耶穌基督的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “He is not the God of the dead, but of the living.” (Mar 12:27)

Meditation one: What does “believe in Lord Jesus” mean? It means we believe in His past deeds – He is the only begotten son of God, for our sins He was nailed on the cross, and resurrected from death on the third day. It also means we truly believe His deeds now – He is the God who was, and is, and is to come. It means we firmly trust His deeds in the future – He is the God Who will come again for us. The affirmation of faith has a great impact on one’s life regarding attitude, value, purpose and meaning. It can help you to face every single day without fear, so that your life is full of hope.

Meditation two: Since you truly believe that He is the resurrected Lord, the God of the living, then how is the relationship between you and God? Do you often have common sharing with Him in prayer? Do you come near to God by reading the Bible earnestly? Do you serve Him with a heart of gratitude? Do you devote yourself to trust in Him intently? Do you let Him be the supremacy in everything? Do you splendor Him in your daily life?

Prayer: God my Lord! I thank You for giving me the living hope. Because You are the eternity, from everlasting to everlasting, I am no longer afraid of any challenge. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, no harsh environment can knock down my faith in You. Guide me, wherever I go, that You will be exalted in my body. Pray in the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen!


13 《今日靈修默想》:「你們要謹慎,儆醒禱告,因為你們不曉得那日期幾時來到。」(可13:33)

默想一:主耶穌再來為什麼是基督徒最大的盼望?因為再來是祂親自的應許,屆時神的國真正的實現如在天。基督徒在混亂的世代裡,要格外謹慎自守,警醒禱告,免得入了迷惑。曾否想過,主耶穌若今日來,你準備好了嗎?讓我們在基督再來前,多作主工,快傳福音。

默想二:既然基督的再來沒有人知道,天上的使者不知道,甚至聖子耶穌都不知道,惟有天父上帝知道,那我們該怎麼辦?不是花功夫去研究基督再來的時間、兆頭、現象、預言等等,而是花更多的時間在神的話裡面,而非人的話。人的責任並不是推測,而是準備自己並儆醒。最要緊的,是要確定我們已經在神的國度裡。你有把主耶穌的再來,放在重要的位置上嗎?

禱告:主耶穌,感謝祢再來的應許,這是何等榮耀的盼望。求祢賜我剛強壯膽的心,敢於面對任何屬靈爭戰,讓我不驚慌、不逃避、不退縮、不妥協,直到祢的再來。唯願祢的國度、祢的榮耀和祢的旨意在我的身上自由運行並彰顯。奉主耶穌的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come.” (Mar 13:33)

Meditation one: Why is Jesus’ coming back again the greatest hope of Christians? It is because that hope is His very own promise. At that time the Kingdom of God will truly come as in heaven. Christians in the chaos of this era should be more alert, watch, and pray so that we will not fall into temptation. Have you ever thought that if Jesus were here today, would you be ready? Let us do more work and preach the Gospel before Christ comes again.

Meditate two: Since no one knows when Christ will come again, angels of the Heaven do not know, even the Holy Son Jesus does not know, except the God Heavenly Father knows. Then what should we do? Instead of wasting effort to study the time of Christ’s coming, whether there is any sign, any phenomenon, any prophecy, and so on, one should spends more time in the Word of God, and not men’s words. The responsibility of us is not to guess, but to prepare ourselves and be alert. The most urgent thing is to make sure that we are already in the Kingdom of God. Have you place the coming of Jesus in a significant status?

Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for the promise of coming again, which is such a glorious hope. Grant me a strong and courageous heart, dare to face any spiritual wars. Help me not to fear, not to flee, not to retract, and not to compromise, until Your return. Only wish Your Kingdom, Your glory and Your will are indeed revealed to me and freely at work in me. Pray in the Name of Lord Jesus, Amen!


14 《今日靈修默想》:「總要警醒禱告,免得入了迷惑。你們心靈固然願意,肉體卻軟弱了。」(可14:38)

默想一:在你信仰的歷程上是否也經常出現「心靈固然願意,肉體卻軟弱」的狀況?有多少次立志為善由得我,卻常常是行出來由不得我。如何勝過這來自撒旦的工作?感謝主,祂知道你我的掙扎及無力,因祂做過人,也面對過你我所面對的問題,祂深知得勝的武器是什麼?就是儆醒禱告,不間斷地禱告,不可灰心的禱告。

默想二:撒旦為什麼在各處瘋狂地進行破壞、製造恐怖、迷惑眾人?因爲牠知道基督要再來,牠的時日不多,就像死亡前的瘋狂。但基督徒不必驚慌,主耶穌已應許說:「凡靠著祂進到神面前的人,祂都能拯救到底,因為祂是長遠活著,為他們祈求。」(來7:25)祂的同在是直到世界的末了。

禱告:感謝天父,因袮的慈愛永遠常存。我得承認自己經常軟弱跌倒,勝不過自己的脾氣、個性、嗜好、壞習慣,求祢赦免。求袮幫助我,我願謹守每日與袮的相交,藉著靈修來塑造自己的靈命。主,我也要盡自己的本分經常為子女、家人、團契、教會、國家、執政掌權者禱告。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.” (Mar 14:38)

Meditation one: On the journey of your faith, does it every so often come up with the “spirit is willing, but flesh is weak” situation? So many times that I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. How to win a victory over the work from Satan? Thank the Lord, who knows the struggling and powerlessness in you and me because He had been becoming flesh and facing the situations of you and me. He fully understands which armament to take to win the victory? Watch and pray, constantly pray, and never give up.

Meditation two: Why Satan is so outrageously causing destruction, producing terrors, and confusing people around everywhere? For it knows that Christ will come again, and that it does not have too many days left, like the psychosis before eternal demise. But Christians do not have to be panic, Jesus has said: “He is able to save completely those who come to God through Him, because He always lives to intercede for them.” (Heb 7:25) He is with us until the very end of the age.

Prayer: Thank Heavenly Father, for Your love abides forever. I have to admit that often I have been weak and fall, cannot overcome my spleen, my nature, bad habit and obsession. Please forgive me and ask You to help me. I will discreetly fellowship with You every day to shape my life through meditation. Lord, I will do my part to pray for my children, families, fellowships, churches, countries, and the heads of power and authority. Pray in the Name of Lord Jesus, Amen!  


15 《今日靈修默想》:「我的神!我的神!為什麼離棄我?」(可15:34)

默想一:主耶穌被釘在十字架上時,怎麼會大聲喊叫「為什麼」?祂是在埋怨、喊冤、恐懼、不服?不是!而是因祂背負了全世界人的罪,在那一刻被神丟棄了,所有人應受的咒詛都歸在祂身上(加3:13),這使祂心靈深處有一種至深的被撇棄感和孤立感。耶穌遭受如此痛苦唯一的解釋,就是祂完全為我們世人的罪的緣故。神愛世人,祂願萬人得救,不願一人沉淪。

默想二:在你的生命中有過無語問蒼天「為什麼」嗎?神若存在,為什麼掩面不顧我?神若愛我,為什麼向我靜默無聲呢?神是信實的,祂的慈愛永不改變。不要浪費時間只顧質問為什麼?要及時地轉向神,

祂說:「到我這裡來的,我總不丟棄他」(約6:37) 禱告:感謝神,因袮藉著耶穌基督在十字架上所完成的救恩。因耶穌基督全然地順服袮,我才蒙恩。求祢時時光照我,讓我體會祢為我受苦的深度和意義,並在每一天存感恩的心為祢而活。奉主耶穌的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Mar 15:34)

Meditation one: When Jesus was nail on the cross, what made Him to cry out “Why. . .” in a loud voice? Was He complaining, or protesting, or scaring, or rebelling? No! It was because He carried all the sins of the people in the world, was forsaken by God at that moment, and became a curse for all of us (Gal 3:13). This gave Him a deep sense of desertion and separation in His mind. The only reason for Jesus’ suffering in such pain is that He is solely for the sake of the sins of this world. God loves the world, He wants all people to be saved and does not want anyone to perish.

Meditation two: In your life time have you ever asked Lord “why” speechlessly? If God exists, why does God hide His face from me? If God loves me, why does He not give ear unto my cry? God is faithful, and His love remains the same. Don’t waste time to question “why”. Turn back to God, for He said “whoever comes to me I will never drive away.” (John 6:37)

Pray: Thank God for Your salvation through Jesus Christ’s crucifying on the Cross. I have been given the grace because Jesus Christ’s unconditional obedience. Shine on me, let me sense the profundity and meaning of Your suffering for me, and live for You with a grateful heart every day. Pray in the Name of Lord Jesus, Amen!


16 《今日靈修默想》:祂對他們說:「你們往普天下去,傳福音給萬民聽。」(可16:15)

默想一:你知道你今天蒙恩得救的目的是什麼?不僅被呼召成為基督徒,更重要的是被差遣成為基督的門徒。若你知道呼召並差遣你的是復活的主,是萬王之王,你會欣然地、甘心的、樂意地接受祂榮耀的託付,並以基督的大使(代表)為榮。

默想二:你信主後,曾經跟朋友分享基督的福音嗎?對你而言,傳福音最大攔阻是什麼?是怕沒有勇氣「傳」?擔心沒有好的「見證」?恐怕「福音」講不清楚?不要怕,福音本是神的大能,要救一切相信的人。我們只是盡本分地為主傳福音,結果交給神。

禱告:天父上帝,感謝祢的榮耀託付,讓我能有份於大使命的工程。求袮教導我如何善用時光,並開啟我的視野,敏捷於周圍人的需要。也求袮賜我膽量,願意與人分享福音的好處。奉耶穌基督得勝的名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》: He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” (Mar 16:15)

Meditation one: Do you know the purpose of being saved by grace? It is not only to become a Christian by calling, but also more importantly to be sent as a disciple of Christ. If you know the calling and sending are from the resurrected Lord, the King of Kings, you will gladly, willingly and joyfully accept His glorious trust and be honored as an ambassador (representative) for Christ.

Meditation two: Did you ever share the Gospel of Christ with your friends after you believed in the Lord? What is the major obstacle for you to evangelize? Are you afraid of not having the courage to “preach”? Concerned that there is no sound “testimony” to share? Worried incapable of expressing the Gospel clearly? Do not worry; gospel is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes. We are only doing our part to preach the gospel, and the outcome is in God’s hands.

Prayer: God Heavenly Father, thank You for Your glorious entrust, so that I can be part of Your great commission. Ask You to teach me how to make the best use of my time, and to open my scope, to be sprightly to the needs of those around me. I also ask You to give me the courage to share the blessings of the Gospel with others. Pray in the victorious Name of Jesus Christ. Amen!


《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!
