《感恩節靈修默想》:耶穌說,「潔淨了的不是十個人麼?那九個在哪裡呢?」(路17:17)

默想一:弟兄姊妹,你聽見神對那些忘恩負義的人的嘆息嗎?這十個長大痳瘋的人在蒙恩之前,都向主耶穌大聲求的,但蒙恩之後聲音變沒了。感恩的人少,報恩的人更少。今天大多數的人不也是這樣嗎?明明向神呼求過的,蒙垂聽之後,在神面前裝不知,以為事成乃是偶然的,或認為那是自己努力的結果。可惜這九個人僅僅得肉體的醫治,而這一位回來向主報恩的人,不僅肉體得醫治,靈魂也得拯救,成為恩上加恩的人。他全人的身心靈得到全然醫治與釋放。

默想二:耶穌真的很在乎我們對祂的感恩嗎?耶穌未免太小氣了吧。耶穌從來就沒有要求蒙恩的人要給多少錢或多少禮物。祂在乎的只是你那一顆感恩的心。你有沒有想過,主耶穌為了你我的罪在十字架上所付的代價,祂沒有先看你為祂作了多少才上十字架,祂捨身流血只是為了愛你。我們給祂的永遠不能夠跟祂所給的相比。

禱告:天父上帝,感謝袮在基督裡所賜的一切恩惠。因為有袮,我的生命充滿了信、望、愛。求袮教導我如何常存感恩的心,不論環境惡劣,處境艱難,我要大膽地依靠袮過「凡事謝恩」的生活。也求你幫助我,讓我的一生成為多人的祝福。奉主耶穌得勝的名禱告,阿們!

《Thanksgiving Season Meditation》:  “Jesus asked, ‘Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine?’” (Luk 17:17)

Meditation one: Brothers and Sisters, do you hear God’s sighs to those who are ungrateful? Before receiving gracious favor, these ten lepers all lifted up their voices and pleaded with the Lord Jesus, but their voices disappeared after the gracious favor. There are few people who are grateful and even fewer render back the grace they received. Isn’t that true for most people today? Those who have openly pleaded with God, yet once their pleas were answered, pretended to be ignorant in the presence of God, reasoning that things happened by chance, or that these were the result of their own efforts. It is a pity that these nine people were only healed on their fleshes, and the one who returned to the Lord to give gratefulness was not only healed on his flesh, but also his soul was saved, and he received grace upon grace. His whole body, soul and spirit were completely healed and released.

Meditation two: Is Jesus really picky about our gratitude? It seems like that Jesus is too stingy. Jesus actually never asked the favored person to donate any money or gifts. All Jesus cares about is your thankful heart. Have you ever thought about the price Jesus has paid on the cross for your sins? He didn’t first see how much you have done for Him before He went to the cross. He shed His blood just for the sake of loving you. What we give to Him can never be compared with what He gives to us.

Prayer: God Heavenly Father, thank You for all Your grace in Christ. Because of You, my life is full of faith, hope, and love. Please teach me how to be grateful. No matter whether the environment is difficult or the situation is hard, I will boldly rely on You to live a life of “in everything give thanks”. Please also help me, so that my life can become a blessing for many other people. I pray in the victorious name of the Lord Jesus. Amen.
