《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:恩典的主,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。奉耶穌基督的聖名禱告。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 should Christians shine on this world for the Lord? It is because what this dark world needs most is light, and Christ is the only true light in this world. The Lord Christ made us into this world is to let us shine for Him. Because of His new creation, we have already “been” the light in this world. We don’t need to work hard to become a “light”. Our responsibility is just to exert the function of the light.

Meditation two: Do you know the main reason why people in this world do not easily believe in the Lord? They do not see living testimonies in Christians: They feel that if Christians are not as good as non-Christians regarding their behaviors, conversational attitudes, characters, and moral cultivations, then what is the purpose of believing in the Lord? Pray for the Holy Spirit to forgive our weakness and shortcomings, and forgive us for disgracing the name of the Lord. Pray that God will create in me a clean heart, renew a right spirit within me and live out the glorious beauty of the Lord Jesus.

Prayer: Lord of grace, thank You for entrusting us the mission of light. Please help me, so that in this chaotic era, I can be seen as lights in the world. I no longer want to be a hidden Christian, but proactively kindling the light of life for You and letting others see Your glory through me. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
