【家庭更新 】原來做上帝的器皿是如此的快樂

 

Couple

在多倫多舉辦的粵語恩愛夫婦營的營 友

 

我們夫婦兩個參加了家新的 MER1 和 MER2 兩次營會,讓我們真正認識了這獨一無二的 "上帝",從剛開始想要瞭解到現在堅定的相信貫穿了整整三個年頭。這三年裡我們體會到了溫暖、喜悅,我們享受到了在靈命裡的成長。而伴隨我們的是家新的幾對帶領夫婦,從他們身上我們感受到了愛他人勝過愛自己的含義,常常在他們嘴裡也能聽到他們是上帝的僕人、是被上帝使用的器皿。自然而然地我們倆個人也希望成為他們中的一員。

2019 年 3 月 8-10 號我們夫婦兩第一次領到了任務為 2019 年第 52 屆 MER1 夫妻營做行政夫婦。其實我們剛剛接到任務時有些緊張,但我們倆都能感覺到此次任務跟我們平時做其他任何事情都不一樣,有著從未有過做事情的認真和專注。起初的幾天,我們看到了彼此的一些變化,尤其是在跟每一對夫婦確認進營地過程中先生耐心謙卑的態度從他在打電話的畫面中看到了完全把自己放在了當中。每當確定了一對夫婦能夠參加營會我們倆高興的無法言語。使得在這次營會中無一對夫婦遲到。

在我們第一次帶領夫婦的準備會上,聽到了我們要和「魔鬼」搶人,當時不是特別的理解,但在接下來營前對報名的每對夫妻的準備工作中真正體會到了屬靈的徵戰。有一對夫婦開始丈夫堅決不去到最後的一刻進了營會,我們和這位妻子做了反反復復的工作和禱告的確演藝了與魔鬼搶人的一場戰爭,在我們無望的時候大家全身心的合力禱告,我們親自感受到了上帝的力量「主啊!你是無所不能的神」。

進營會的第一次禱告會上,我們聽到了每對夫婦最多的禱告詞中說 "主啊!我們是你使用的器皿,我們雖然不配但我們願意將自己擺上請你使用,在你的地盤中成就對每一對夫婦的祝福"。在經歷了整個三天兩夜的營會中,我們目睹了每對夫妻的變化,目睹了上帝在營會當中的做工。更感覺到了上帝在使用我們這些器皿的恰到好處。使整個營會非常順利。還有兩個難忘的場景:有一對夫婦因長期的矛盾和傷痕幾乎到了一種失控的狀態,我們每一對帶領夫婦都希望通過努力能有所改變,當丈夫在一個環節中再次像妻子求婚時妻子一直做著不起哭著不停,這種場面持續了很久,此時我們的主領夫婦和所有的帶領夫婦以及眾兄弟姐妹們衝向前去圍著他們一起同心禱告,最終通過大家齊心禱告聖靈的力量打動了人心震撼了全場。第二天還是這位妻子在另一個互動環節中,大聲哭訴 "你們不是醫生嗎?我在一個井裡需要梯子能夠讓我上來,可是你們確給了我一根繩子我怎麼上來",這時我們其中的一位帶領夫婦抱著她和其他的夫婦們一起做了一個認罪禱告,我們再次被這禱告震撼了,原來上帝的器皿是這樣的。

三天兩夜我們夫婦倆彼此見證了成長,雖然我們是第一次事工從開始到結束我們倆也忘我的把自己全身心的擺上,體力上也全力以赴,但心裡是甜的、是滿的。在結束的那天我們彼此想問我們還要做這樣的事工嗎?我們共同的回答是「要」,因為這是我們夫婦倆在做所有的事情當中最快樂、最滿足的。

原來做上帝的器皿就是如此的快樂!
