【雙語園地】當你疲累到不想再服侍他人

 

當你疲累到不想再服侍他人
作者:Pastor JB    中譯:舟子


羅馬書15:13 但願使人有盼望的神,因信將諸般的喜樂、平安充滿你們的心,使你們藉著聖靈的能力大有盼望!

你可曾疲累到不想再服侍他人?要記得:我們生命的目標便是讚美神。讚美神的一個重要的方式,便是放棄我們的權利、所喜愛的和舒適,藉此使來自不同背景的人,可以從我們身上明白神那無可爭議的愛,並與我們同心敬拜神。這就是保羅在羅馬書第15章對猶太信徒和外邦信徒的勉勵,要"彼此接納,如同基督接納你們一樣,使榮耀歸於神。"(羅15:7)

《聖經》裡有許多人放棄自己的權利、喜好和舒適的例子,為使他人能因而得到神的祝福。亞伯拉罕為了羅得如此行,約拿單為了大衛,路得為了拿俄米;耶穌,最偉大的例子,為我們而如此行。他們的甘願犧牲和無私,不只使他人蒙福,神也越加祝福他們。神壓制驕傲的人,賜福給謙卑的人。

所以,當你感到疲累而不想再服侍或去愛他人時,要記得主耶穌無私的犧牲,還有其他的男人或女人在《聖經》中的例子。要記得神在最後怎樣使他們蒙福。但願他們的例子鼓勵你,使你有堅忍的毅力繼續盡力去服侍,並愛那些在你週圍的人。倘若你繼續服侍而不放棄,神會使用你去祝福他人,並且最終會大大地祝福你。


When You Get Tired of Serving Others

Written by Pastor JB. 

Romans 15: 13
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Do you ever get tired of serving others? Remember this: the goal of our lives is to give God praise. One important way we give God praise is when we sacrifice our rights, preferences and comforts so that other people who come from a different background than us can know the indisputable love of God through us and worship alongside us in unity. That's what Paul in Romans 15 was encouraging the Jews and the Gentiles to do for one another: to "accept one another, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God" (verse 7).

Scripture is filled with examples of people who sacrificed their own rights, preferences and conveniences so that someone else could be blessed. Abraham did that for Lot. Jonathan did that for David. Ruth did that for Naomi. Jesus, the greatest example of all, did that for us. As a result of their willing and selfless sacrifices, not only were others blessed, but they themselves were blessed even more by God. God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.

So whenever you find yourself getting tired of serving and loving others, remember the selfless sacrifices of Jesus Christ and other men and women in the Bible. Remember how God blessed them in the end. May their example give you endurance and encouragement to keep on doing your best to serve and love the people around you. If you keep on going and don't give up, God will use you to bless others and will bless you even more in the end.

 

 

 


 

 

 

我們可以從夏娃身上學到的功課
作者:Richard Reid    中譯:以恩


Double最近我在讀一本書,談到聖經裡的女人,書名叫做:《聖經裡的壞女人》,作者是Liz Curtis Higgs。我想跟大家分享一些她的觀點。

我們可以從夏娃身上學到什麼功課?

一,不要跟撒旦爭論

我們不能讓撒旦停止往我們的耳朵裡灌輸一些想法,但我們可以拒絕去聽,更可以不做任何的回應。"務要抵擋魔鬼,魔鬼就必離開你們逃跑了。(各4:7b)"

二,要知道神說什麼,就不會被撒旦愚弄

學習《聖經》的話讓我們有能力拒絕,因為我們"知道"得更多。"我將祢的話藏在心裡,免得我得罪祢。(詩119:11)"

我把這兩點寫下來,因為它們對我而言非常重要,相信對你也會有幫助。!

 


What lessons can we learn from Eve

Written by Richard Reid

I was just reading a book about women in the Bible. It is called "Bad Girls of the Bible" by Liz Curtis Higgs. Here are just a couple of her thoughts about Eve:

What lessons can we learn from Eve?

1) Don't get into a debate with Satan

- We can't stop Satan from whispering in our ears, but we can refuse to listen, and we can definitely refuse to respond.
- "Resist the devil and he will flee from you." (James 4:7)

2) Know God's word so you won't be fooled

- Studying verses from the Bible gives us the strength to say "No" because we "know" better.
- "I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you." (Psalm 119:11)

Just thought I would pass along these thoughts to you because as a Christian these two points made a lot of sense to me. Maybe they will make sense to you also.
