《今日靈修默想》:「這百姓用嘴唇尊敬我,心卻遠離我。他們將人的吩咐(規條)當作道理教導人,所以拜我也是枉然。」(可7:6-7)

默想一:每到主日,你到教會的心境如何?是帶著歡慶的心,還是抱著勉強的心?還是帶著渴慕的心,還是習慣性的到教會?是帶著朝見神的心,還是要去找朋友的心去?我們敬拜神,因祂是配得我們永遠的歌頌、讚美、奉獻。

默想二:天父上帝在尋找怎樣的人來敬拜祂?就是那用心靈按真理敬拜祂的人(約4:23)。神是監察人心的,祂要的敬拜,不是徒有敬拜的外表,卻沒有敬拜的實際;祂也不要我們的人在教會,心卻在教會流浪。神在乎的不是你的外表熱心,而是你的內心的敬虔。生活表裡不一致,再怎樣的敬拜也是枉然。

 禱告:阿爸父神,感謝祢讓我成為敬拜祢的子民。求祢指教我如何尊祢的主日爲聖,珍惜每一個主日的敬拜。求袮幫助我,無論做什麼,我願脫離一切的虛偽,使我作個心口如一的基督徒。奉主耶穌的聖名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.” (Mar 7:6-7)

Meditation one: What is your state of mind when you come to the church every Sunday? Are you with a joyful heart or a heart of unwillingness? Or do you go to church with a longing soul? Do you carry a heart to meet God or a heart to find friends? We worship God because He is worthy of our forever adoration, praise, and dedication.

Meditation two: What kind of people is God looking for to worship Him? They are who worship Him in the spirit and in truth (Joh 4:23). God searches the heart and examines the mind. The kind of worship He wanted is not a manifestation of worship, but the truth of worship. He also does not want our people just be in the church, but their hearts are wandering around the church. What God cares about is not your outward zeal, but the truth inside your heart. Life without consistency is worthless, no matter how to worship.

Prayer: Abba Father, thank You for making me a person who worships You. Please show me how to honor Your Lord’s Day as holy, and to cherish worship on each Sunday. Please help me so whatever I do, I will be free from all hypocrisy, and make me a Christian with consistency inside and out. I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
