《今日靈修默想》:「我只有一件事,就是忘記背後努力面前的,向著標竿直跑,要得神在基督耶穌裡從上面召我來得的獎賞。」(腓3:13-14)

默想一:你2020年的人生標竿是什麼?你有把握嗎?基督徒是以基督為標竿的人生,我們追求認識主的態度要像運動員一樣,全力以赴地向着奪錦標的標竿直跑。不管我們過去曾經失敗或成功,讓我們繼續向著更像耶穌為目標。我們不是要得這世上的獎賞,而是要得著那永恆的賞賜,就是永遠享受上帝的同在。

默想二:你要如何直奔標竿?先「忘記背後」,靠基督放下所有過去的成敗和得失,還要測底清除一切賽程上的障礙物,包括你生活中的絆腳石及內在的垃圾。然後「努力面前」,就是效法基督的順服及行動,以認識耶穌基督為至寶。信靠主的人只能往前跟主走。手扶著犁往後看的,不配進天國(路9:62)

禱告:主耶穌,感謝祢在2019年所滴下的恩典脂油。至於新年,我將繼續以祢為我定的標竿為我的人生目標,並竭力追求認識祢,直到祢成形在我心,讓別人在我身上看見祢的榮耀。奉主耶穌寶貴的聖名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (Php 3:13-14)

Meditation one: What is your life’s goal for the year of 2020? Are you sure? The goal of Christians’ lives is Christ. We seek to know the Lord in the same way as athletes press on toward the goal of the triumph. Regardless of our failures or successes in the past, let us continue to press on toward being more like Jesus. We are not press on toward the reward in this world, but toward the prize of eternity, that is, to enjoy God’s presence forever.

Meditation two: How do you press on toward a goal? First of all,” forgetting what is behind”, then rely on Christ to put down all past successes, failures, gains and losses, and also to clear all the obstacles on the path, including stumbling blocks and hidden trash in your life. Then, “straining toward what is ahead” which is the obedience and the deeds according to Christ. Those who trust in the Lord can only follow the Lord. No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God (Luk 9:62).

Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for Your grace overflows with abundance in 2019. As for the year to come, I will continue to take the goal You set for me as my benchmark in my life, and strain to know You until You are formed in me and let others see Your glory through me. I pray in the precious name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
