《今日靈修默想》:「你們總要自己省察有信心沒有,也要自己試驗。豈不知,你們若不是可棄絕的,就有耶穌基督在你們心裡嗎?」(林後13:5)

默想一:你最近的屬靈狀況如何?長進還是退後?或停留在不冷不熱?此時此刻是你在神面前「省察自己的信心」的時刻,謙卑地學像詩人的禱告「上帝啊,求你鑒察我,知道我的心思, 試煉我,知道我的意念, 看在我裏面有甚麼惡行沒有, 引導我走永生的道路。」(詩 139:23-24 )

默想二:如果你說有信心,那你與主的關係如何?你確信住在基督裡面嗎?在基督裡的人不可能一直在軟弱裡,反而在凡事上顯出剛強及成熟的生命。與主的關係,表現在每天的生活裡。

禱告:親愛的阿爸父,感謝祢賜下耶穌基督內住我心裡。我雖然會有軟弱的時候,但我會抓住祢的應許「到我這裡來的,我總不丟棄他」(約6:37b)。求祢的聖靈充滿我、管理我。主!無論在何處,我願活出經得起考驗的信心生活。奉主耶穌的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?” (2Co 13:5)

Meditation one: How is your recent spiritual status? Are you moving forward or backward? Or are you idling in neither cold nor hot? This is the moment that you should examine yourself to see whether you are in the faith and humbly learn to pray like the poet’s prayer: “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting” (Psa 139:223-24).

Meditation two: If you say you have faith, how is your relationship with the Lord? A person who lives in Christ should not always be in weakness, but show a strong and mature life in all things. The relationship with the Lord is manifested in every day’s life.

Prayer: Dear Abba Father, thank You for giving Jesus Christ to dwell in me. Although sometimes I can be weak, however, I can seize Your promise of “whoever comes to me I will never drive away” (John 6:37b). May Your Holy Spirit fill in me and govern me. Lord, wherever I am, I will live out a life of faith that can withstand tests. I pray in the name of Jesus, Amen!
