《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。」(太9:12-13)

默想一:最難接受福音的是怎樣的人?是那些自認是聰穎、成功、發達、健康的人,他們不承認自己是需要福音的人。病人承認有病就要醫生,罪人承認有罪就要救主。事實上,世上沒有一個義人。耶穌來,就是呼召那些認識自己是有罪的人。只有那些在神面前謙卑悔改的人才能得救。

默想二:你知道你是神所愛的對象嗎?祂知道你心靈的苦痛、體會你的掙扎、瞭解你的處境。但你得先把自己的自義、自滿、自傲放下,像小孩那樣單純地、虛心地來到主面前。帶著憂傷痛悔的心,神必不輕看。你何時轉向神,祂何時就拯救你、釋放你、醫治你。

禱告:感謝神,因拯救的大能。我承認自己的渺小、有限、軟弱及無力,我需要祢的醫治,求祢差遣聖靈內住我心,成為我隨時的幫助。我既然是靠聖靈得生,我也願在任何事上靠聖靈行事(加5:25)。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. . .  For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” (Mat 9:12-13)

Meditation one: Who are the most difficult ones to accept the gospel? They are those who consider themselves clever, successful, prosperous, and healthy. They do not acknowledge that they need the gospel. A patient admits to be sick then will look for a doctor, and a sinner confesses to have sin then will seek the Savior. In fact, there is no one righteous in this world. Jesus came to call those who know that they are sinners. Only those who humble and repent before God can be saved.

Meditation two: Do you know that you are the one whom God wants to love? He knows the pain of your soul, recognizes your struggles, and understands your situation. But you have to put down your self-righteousness, complacency, and arrogance first, and come to the Lord honestly and humbly like a child. God will not despise a broken and contrite heart. The moment you turn to God, He will save you, release you, and heal you.

Prayer: Thank God for the power of salvation. I admit my insignificance, limitation, weakness, and feebleness. I need your healing. Please send Holy Spirit to dwell in my heart and be my help at all times. Since I live by the Spirit, let me keep in step with the Spirit in everything (Gal 5:25). I pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
