【宣教角落】歐洲倡議 European Initiative

 

Europ

 

第一個宣教運動始於歐洲,可惜今天歐洲卻不再是基督教的中心,反而成了「宣教的禾場」。然而,上帝仍然關心歐洲。「歐洲倡議」(EI)始於美國,目的是努力接觸歐洲屬靈飢渴的人群,將美國宣教團隊差往歐洲與當地的教會和宣教機構,在以下 5 項倡議上合作,包括傳福音、憐憫、教導、禱告和猶太事工。當中被譽為全球八大貝多芬鋼琴家之一的塞繆爾•羅特曼(Samuel Rotman),在吸引歐洲猶太人認識耶穌的事工上發揮重要作用。EI 透過在全歐洲舉辦他的音樂會來接觸猶太人。羅特曼會在每場音樂會上為主做見證。羅特曼是一位在美國長大的虔誠正統派猶太人,有一次他得到一本新約聖經,當他打開閱讀時,震驚地發現新約聖經不是關於外邦人的書卷,而是與猶太人有密切關係!他才知道原來耶穌竟然是猶太人,而且是猶太人等候的彌賽亞!羅特曼決定把自己的生命交給耶穌,雖然他知道可能要為此付出巨大代價。當羅特曼把這決定告訴父母時,父親傷心地說:「你不再是我的兒子!對我來說,你已經死了。」決志信主的代價很大,但耶穌已為羅特曼付上更大的代價,他決定要義無反顧地跟隨主的腳蹤。

天父,為每一位歐洲猶太人祈禱,求父讓他們有機會聽到耶穌為了使他們能重新恢復與天父的關係,付上了最高的代價,這是主耶穌向他們顯明的愛。「你求我,我就將列國賜你為基業,將地極賜你為田產。」求主興起更多工人加入歐洲倡議,將基督的名字帶回到福音的第一站歐洲,尤其向在歐洲的猶太人傳講彌賽亞的福音。奉主耶穌基督的名求,阿們。

『你們要對約瑟這樣說:從前你哥哥們惡待你,你要饒恕他們的過犯和罪惡。』現在求你饒恕你父親的神之僕人們的過犯。」創50:17


求你 — 你一生中或許不只一次需要求人饒恕你無法啟齒的過犯。那個時候,言語往往不管用,你只能以眼淚說話,默默期望對方原諒你。annah 就是這樣的意思,描寫「面對自己的不堪時,從受盡折磨的靈魂深處,發出的一聲撕心裂肺的哭泣」。約瑟的哥哥們在痛苦中沒期望會獲得原諒。他們來到約瑟面前只能喊出 annah,將自己的痛心疾首喊出來。annah 是一種窮途末路的懇求,期望能使靈魂恢復健康。聖經說凡拒絕神救恩的人,將來有一天也只能發出 annah,但到時審判主將不會理會他們。原來 annah 這聲音是需要操練的,好成為你心靈的聲音。我們要常常俯伏在主面前,求祂把我從罪惡和憂傷的行為中釋放出來。當祂還願意聽我的 annah 時,我若不學習熟練地發出這聲音,有一天當我來到一個只能說 annah 的地方,卻再也無法聽到神說:「我饒恕。」學習說 annah,你將會加入一群好同伴當中:摩西、希西家、大衛、以賽亞、但以理、約拿,這些人都曾在神面前喊過 annah。在你一生中沒有比這更該操練的。
