撒種和收割 Sowing and Reaping

這兩個星期教會主日講道都在講關於撒種和收割的道理。沒有撒種,就不會有收成。吝啬或懼怕去付出的,不但不會有收獲,甚至可能連原本僅有的也會失去。

撒種和收割並不只是一個道理,也是一條方程式,甚至是一門學問。撒甚麼種,何時、何地、如何撒,都同樣地會影響收成。

撒種的人,既需要有毅力,也需要有智慧。

在這個新的人生季節裡,我已撰擇了要如何撒種。然而這晚我又在想,到底自己的選擇是否正確,我所撒的種是否真的能夠開花結果,帶來收成?

當我仍在疑慮之際,我打開了我的靈修禱告書 “Praying God’s Word Day by Day” (by Beth Moore),今天的訊息是:“We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us, but frankly we won’t if we’re too afraid to try.”

神就是這樣,經常在我的書中 (又或者藉著其他各種不同的途徑) 對我說話,或回應我心中的疑問。

只要我們願意靠著神去踏出信心的腳步,祂便會加給我們力量,讓我們凡事都能作。只要我們不放棄,到了時候,我們便能取得美好的收成。

禱告(“Praying God’s Word Day by Day” October 27 的禱告)

“My mighty God, thank You for Your Word that exhorts me not to become weary in doing good.  At the proper time I will reap a harvest if I do not give up (Gal. 6:9).

Father, this process of breaking free is hard work!  Please remind me often that it is also a very good work.  Help me to know without a doubt that any effort You require of me will have effect.  Please help me never to give up, no matter how long it takes.  I will reap a harvest in Jesus’ name!

Lord God, I acknowledge the promise of Your Word that I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength (Phil. 4:13).  Help me to cast all my anxiety on You because You care for me (1 Pet. 5:7).”  Amen.

以前曾經寫過一篇關於撒種和收割的文章,現在找了出來再次與大家分享:

以前曾看過和讀過關於力克 (Nick Vujicic) 的見證,不過昨晚當我看到這短片時,我很被他所分享的感動。

I’ve watched and read about Nick Vujicic’s testimony before, but last night when I saw this clip, I was very touched by what he has shared.

“When things that happened in your life, you don’t understand the purpose, the question is this: is God worthy of your thanks?  Is God still worthy of your praises?  A lot of people say the verse ‘the joy of the Lord is my strength’, what does that mean?  What is your joy?  Why can’t you rejoice always?”

“I love the fact that, that is the greatest joy of all: having Jesus Christ in my life, and living the godly purpose that He has for me.  And I can be thankful.  I thank God.”

“I pleaded with God, ‘God, give me arms and legs…’  I was hoping when I wake up in the morning that I would have arms and legs.  I thought it would be a great miracle…  But I stand before you today as a miracle of God, to prove to everybody, a pure example of God’s grace, love and perfection, so know that I’m the miracle, we are more than conquerors.  Circumstances do not have to change for you to become victorious, it’s our heart that needs to be filled with the Holy Spirit.”
