《今日靈修默想》:主說:「看哪,我必快來!賞賜(工價)在我,我要照著各人所行的報應他。」(啟22:12)

默想一:主耶穌再來,你準備好迎接祂嗎?那首先的也是末後的、創始的也是成終的主耶穌再三地宣告說「我必快來!」(v.7,12,20),凡相信並遵守主再來的預言的有福了(v.7)。祂體恤我們的處境,祂知道我們的軟弱,故此特地把那必要快成的事啟示我們,叫我們更有信心等候祂的再來。尚未信主的人,在恩典之門尚未關閉之前,趁早接受耶穌基督的救恩。已經相信主的人,在信仰上堅守主道,至死忠心,直到行完天路。

默想二:主耶穌再來是否要對你的人生觀、價值觀、世界觀有所調整?主再來是否讓你超越苦難而看到盼望?主再來有讓你遙望永遠的家鄉而看到喜樂?主耶穌清楚指示,祂要按照每一個人在世上所行的報應各人,而你現在的所行、所思、所為是主所喜悅的嗎?有榮耀主的名嗎?

禱告:哈利路亞,讚美主!因袮完美的創造、救贖、啟示得以彰顯。袮不但拯救我們脫離死亡,也照著袮的應許賜給我們今生及來生的盼望—同享主的榮耀直到永遠永遠。主啊!求祢賜我像使徒約翰那樣的信心說「阿們!主耶穌啊,我願祢來!」(v.20b)。奉耶穌基督的名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.” (Rev 22:12)

Meditation one: Are you ready to meet the Lord Jesus when He is coming again? The first and the last, the pioneer and the perfect of the Lord Jesus repeatedly declared, “I am coming soon!” (v.7, 12, 20). Blessed are those who believe and obey the prophecy of the Lord’s coming again. (v. 7) He is sympathetic to our situations. He knows our weakness. Therefore, He revealed to us what must soon take place, that we can have more faith to wait for His return. Those who have not yet believed in the Lord should accept the salvation of Jesus Christ early before the gate of grace is closed. Those who have believed in the Lord should be faithful to the Lord’s Word even to the point of death until the heavenly journey is done.

Meditation two: Does the Lord Jesus’ coming back make you to adjust your outlook on life, values, and worldview? Does the Lord’s second coming let you see hope beyond suffering? Does the Lord’s coming again let you envision the better country of eternity from afar and seize the joy? The Lord Jesus clearly indicated that He would give to each person according to what they have done on the earth. Nowadays, are your behaviors, your thoughts, and your deeds well pleasing to the Lord? Have you glorify the Name of the Lord?

Prayer: Hallelujah, praise the Lord to make Your perfect creation, redemption, and revelation being known! You not only save us from death, but also give us Your promise of the hope of the life which is now, and of that which is to come — and share the glory of the Lord forever and ever. Oh Lord! Give me the faith of the apostle John, “Amen. Come, Lord Jesus”. (v.20b) I pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
