週三《耶穌受難靈修默想》:「因為常有窮人和你們同在,要向他們行善隨時都可以;只是你們不常有我。」(可14:7)

默想一:馬利亞的奉獻為何蒙神記念?因她有信心的眼光,不僅認出這將是主耶穌待在伯大尼的最後一天,也看出耶穌將要被釘死在十字架上以完成彌賽亞的使命。 為此,她把握最後的機會,把最美的、盡她所能買到的香膏及時地獻給還未被釘死的耶穌,以表達她對基督那真誠的愛。

默想二:愛可用金錢來衡量嗎?不可能!三十兩銀子的代價固然昂貴,但一顆愛主的心又豈是金銀所能衡量或所能相比?周濟窮人固然是主所喜悅的善行,但又有哪一件善行能夠代替祂所需要的愛? 主固然需要工作的事奉,主更需要愛的事奉。

禱告:天父,感謝袮如此長闊高深的愛,像我這樣渺小的人竟然蒙袮恩寵。在默想主耶穌在十字架上的受難時,求袮的聖靈引導我,讓我明白袮長闊高深的愛,也積極地回應袮的愛。奉耶穌的名禱告,阿們!

代禱:為病患和家屬禱告,求神賜他們力量。使他們在肆虐的疫情面前,認真思考生命的意義。求神成為他們在患難中的依靠,並及早得醫治及康復。

Wednesday《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “The poor you will always have with you, and you can help them any time you want. But you will not always have me.” (Mar 14:7)

Meditation one: Why is Mary’s devotion remembered by God? Because she had the vision in faith, she recognized not only that it would be the last day of Jesus ‘ stay in Bethany, but also that Jesus was about to be crucified to fulfill the Messiah’s mission. For this reason, she took the last chance to dedicate to Jesus, who had not yet been crucified, the most precious and obtainable ointment of pure nard, in order to express her sincere love to Christ.

Meditation two: Can love be measured by money? It’s impossible! Although three hundred pence is precious, but can a heart of loving the Lord be measured by gold or silver? Compare to the good deeds of helping the poor that the Lord is pleased, yet can any good deeds replace the love He wants from us? The Lord, of course, needs the ministry of serving Him, but the Lord needs the ministry of Love more.

Prayer: God heavenly Father, thank You for the love of such a breadth and length and height and depth, an insignificant person like me can even receive Your grace and favor. While meditating on the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus, pray for Your Holy Spirit to guide me, let me grasp Your wide and long and high and deep love so I can actively respond to Your love. I pray in the name of Jesus, Amen!

Intercession: Pray for the patients and their families and ask God to give them strength. Let them seriously ponder the meaning of life in the face of such raging epidemic. Pray that God will be their support in times of affliction, and let them heal and recover soon.
