《今日靈修默想》:「我的殿必稱為禱告的殿,你們倒使它成為賊窩了。」(太21:13)

默想一:今天教會最可悲的光景是什麼?光有表面富麗堂皇的建築物,裡面設備現代化,禮拜儀式莊嚴肅穆,敬拜內容豐富,但所敬拜的神不在當中。你知道為什麼嗎?人的熱鬧把上帝嚇跑了,或被人為因素把神的家變得烏煙瘴氣,不僅阻擋人敬拜,也無法讓人專心敬拜神。

默想二:主耶穌為什麼發怒?因為祂看到人踐踏神所看重的殿,把「我的殿」變成人的俱樂部、交易所、菜市場、社交所。禱告的殿在叫賣、喧嚷聲中怎麼可能專心禱告?敬拜的殿在人的吵雜中怎麼能同心敬拜神?

禱告:主耶穌,感謝祢教導我如何看重敬拜。求你提醒我要常常為教會的真誠敬拜禱告,也時常提醒我,在個人生活上,藉著祢的話過聖潔的生活,使我成為聖靈居住的殿。讓我對祢的敬拜不是等到主日,而是每天就過著敬拜祢的生活。奉主耶穌的寶貴聖名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “My house will be called a house of prayer, but you are making it ‘a den of robbers.” (Mat 21:13)

Meditation one: What is the saddest situation of a church today? It is when a church only appears as a magnificent building outside, a modern facility inside, a solemn adoration service with gorgeous worship content, but the God they worshiped is not among them. Do you know why? Human excitement has expelled God away, or insincere features have turned God’s house into a misty place, which not only hampers worship, but also drags people from focusing on worshiping God.

Meditation two: Why was the Lord Jesus angry? It is because He saw people trampled the temple that God values and turned “my house” into a club house, a trading square, a market plaza, and a social place. How could a house of prayer concentrate on prayer in the midst of hawking and chatting? How can people worship God together in a temple filled with people’s clatter?

Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for teaching me how to value worship. Please remind me always to pray for having sincere worships in the church. Please also remind me from time to time to keep my daily life a holy life by abiding Your words, and make me a temple where the Holy Spirit lives. Let me worship You not to wait until the Lord’s Day, but to live a life of worshiping You every day. I pray in the precious name of the Lord Jesus. Amen!
