Corner

 

一個有 30 人的組群中傳來一則訊息:「我們正外出探訪一名女子,她正面臨危險,極需耶穌的醫治,請大家代禱。」這 30 人是第一次在歐洲南部 4 個城市的街上與人分享福音。他們分成 4 組,與每個城市的教會配搭兩週,帶著手機、數位應用程式,以及存入新約聖經及其他福音資源記憶卡,走到街上及海灘向非洲移民分享耶穌。

傳福音的過程不容易,尤其當路人不理會、轉身就走時,實在令人感到尷尬又沮喪。然而,當他們還是堅持下去時,漸漸有了機會與來自幾內亞(Guinea)和喀麥隆(Cameroon)的人分享餐點與福音;與摩洛哥人一起欣賞電影《夢境尋真》;為來自索馬里、厄立特里亞和蘇丹的女子及青少年開辦英文課。

他們也有機會經歷一個一個非洲穆斯林移民走向基督的喜樂。儘管傳福音會面臨許多困難與限制,但當他們堅持宣揚福音,人們便也開始有所回應。這裡有非常多人需要耶穌,包括躲起來等待機會獲得安全的人,以及住在以沉船命名的地區,沒有盼望地生活著的一群人。

天父,感恩在歐洲有信徒願意鼓起勇氣堅持向非洲的流散群體傳福音,謝謝天父讓他們能夠享受看到人歸向主的喜樂。但願在非洲流散群體的初信者中,能興起門徒運動,每個初信者都願讓聖靈掌管他們的生命。耶和華說:「......這尼尼微大城,其中不能分辨左右手的就有十二萬多人,還有許多牲畜,我豈能不愛惜呢?」求主感動歐洲眾教會能憐憫來自非洲的移民及難民,滿足他們心靈與物質需求。奉主耶穌基督的名求,阿們。

我是心裡愁苦的婦人,清酒烈酒都沒有喝,只在耶和華面前傾心吐意。撒上1:15

傾心吐意--哈拿的禱告是沉重的人內心真實的寫照:言語無法表達心意,她向神的傾心吐意是無聲的。對多數人來說,發出聲音的禱告比較容易專注,但哈拿的禱告讓我們看見,當心靈被強烈的情緒淹沒時,禱告的強度會趕走所有聲音,只能用神才聽到的方式與祂的靈連結起來。幾百年後,保羅寫「聖靈用說不出來的嘆息為我們禱告」,或許就是這意思。

shaphak 還出現在詩篇62篇和耶利米哀歌2章,用來描述「心腸和肝臟在神面前倒出來」。當人在神面前傾心吐意到這個程度,就會發現父神的憐憫心腸,自己的計劃被神不可言喻的愛融化了。

通常人要到很大的悲痛,才會來到無聲禱告的地步。我們的禱告常常不是如此在父面前傾心吐意,而是有很多預設、計劃、目的,好像列一張清單求神來成全。我們需要反思哈拿的禱告,神把我們帶到一個悲痛的地步,不是要我們抱怨,而是能夠放下自己,摸到神的心。傷痛帶領人靠近神,我們若是禱告避免傷痛,並不能更靠近神。你願意尋求讓你無聲的禱告嗎?

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves. Philippians 2:3

但他賜更多的恩典,所以經上說:神阻擋驕傲的人,賜恩給謙卑的人。雅各書 4:6

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6,7

因此, 你們是大有喜樂, 但如今, 在百般的試煉中暫時憂愁。彼得前書 1:6
In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 1 Peter 1:6

患難 Trouble, Suffering

義人多有苦難,但耶和華救他脫離這一切。詩篇 34:19
The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all. Psalm 34:19
