《今日靈修默想》:「你們當以基督耶穌的心為心。」(腓2:5)

默想一:在教會裡同心合一容易嗎?不容易。若有先天性的不同如國籍、種族、膚色、文化、語言就不容易了,若再加上每個人的恩賜、個性、主張、方法、經驗,那就更難了。因為到底要聽誰的?究竟要同誰的心?但感謝主,祂已經在十字架上拆毀了我們人之間所有的不同。如果大家願意效法基督的謙卑,單單地「以耶穌基督的心為心」,那麼在基督裡的同心合一是可行的。

默想二:教會要如何「以耶穌基督的心為心」?就是大家以基督的心思為心思,以基督的觀點為觀點,以基督的靈為靈,以基督的看法為看法,以耶穌基督為教會的連結點或交匯點,那麼教會自然就朝向同心合一的方向與目標。今天撒旦的首要工作就是設法破壞教會,我們的責任是為教會儆醒禱告,讓我們竭力保守聖靈所賜合而為一的心。

禱告:,親愛的阿爸父,感謝袮透過三位一體的同工立下「合而為一」的榜樣。為了教會在世上「合而為一」的見證,求祢幫助我,讓我先看到自己的責任,並學習祢虛己、謙卑、順服的心。我願放下自己的主見及偏見,而單單地以祢的心為我的心。奉主耶穌的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus.” (Php 2:5)

Meditation one: Is it easy to have the same mindset in a Church? It is not easy. Unification is not easy when congregations have the natural difference such as nationalities, ethnics, colors, cultures, and languages. Each individual’s gifts, personalities, thoughts, methodologies, and experiences have made it even harder. Whom should we listen to? Whose heart should we be with? Thanks to the Lord, He has broken down all the differences among us on the cross. If we are willing to follow Christ’s humility and truly to “have the same mindset as Christ Jesus “, then unification in Christ is possible.

Meditation two: How a Church can “have the same mindset as Christ Jesus”? By taking Christ’s heart as the heart, taking Christ’s view as the view, taking Christ’s spirit as the spirit, and taking Jesus Christ as the joint or meeting point of the Church, then the Church will naturally move toward the direction and goal of unification. Satan’s first priority today is to attempt to destroy the Church, and it is our responsibility to wake up and pray for the Church. Let us make sure that we give diligence to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

Prayer: Dear Abba Father, Thank You for setting the example of “keeping the unity” through the unification of trinity. In order to testify the “unity” of a Church in this world, please help me, let me recognize my own responsibilities first, and learn to be humble, to empty myself, and to obey. I am willing to put aside my own opinions, prejudices, and truly to have the same mindset as You. I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
