希伯來書  Hebrews 10:19~31
中文聖經版本:新標點和合本/English Bible Version:NIV (New International Version)

19弟兄們,我們既因耶穌的血得以坦然進入至聖所,20是藉著祂給我們開了一條又新又活的路,從幔子經過,這幔子就是祂的身體。21又有一位大祭司治理 神的家,22並我們心中天良的虧久已經灑去,身體用清水洗淨了,就當存著誠心和充足的信心來到 神面前;23也要堅守我們所承認的指望,不至搖動,因為那應許我們的是信實的。24又彼此相顧、激發愛心、勉勵行善。25你們不可停止聚會,好像那些停止慣了的人,倒要彼此勸勉,既知道(原文是看見)那日子臨近,就更當如此。26因為我們得知真道以後,若故意犯罪,贖罪的祭就再沒有了;27惟有戰懼等候審判和那燒滅眾敵人的烈火。28人干犯摩西的律法,憑兩三個見證人,尚且不得憐恤而死,29何況人踐踏 神的兒子,將那使他成聖之約的血當作平常,又褻慢施恩的聖靈,你們想,他要受的刑罰該怎樣加重呢!30因為我們知道誰說;「伸冤在我,我必報應」;又說:「主要審判祂的百姓。」31落在永生 神的手裡,真是可怕的!

19Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.  23Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.  24And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another -- and all the more as you see the Day approaching.  26If we deliverately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, 27but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.  28Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.  29How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace?  30For we know him who said, "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," and again, "The Lord will judge his people."  31It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

 

竹子﹠天父 談心時刻

你知道你現在走的路是「活路」還是「死路」呢?你知道你帶給別人的是生命的「盼望」還是「失望」呢?

這個問題,早上在禱告的跳了出來。雖然耶穌為我們開了這條「生命的活路」,但我們不見得是走向生命,可能仍然面向死亡。怎麼說呢!就像有些時候我們的口中,或多或少會說出一些讓人感到沮喪或挫折的話語,可能我們不是故意的,但當下的一個念頭,不假思索之下就說了出來,就不小心傷了人。這並不是說我們的生命沒有改變,而是我們應該更認真地面對我們生命中的許多不完美,讓自己可以確定是走向「生命」的。

最近許多走出去的服事工作,讓我更深的看見了自己好多的不完美,也讓我更需要常常來面對老爸,從祂那裡支取夠用的恩典。卻也讓我發現了一個事實:只有付出愛,才會發現自己得到了愛。這或許也是為什麼神要我們常常「彼此相顧、激發愛心、勉勵行善」的意思。既然這條路是條「活路」,那這條路一定是引導出生命,而生命最真實的表現,正是「愛」的表現;當我們可以「彼此相顧、激發愛心、勉勵行善」的時候,其實也正是在對彼此表達「愛」,如此,我們就知道我們走活路上了。死路,只會讓自己不去在意別人的需要,更不用講要有愛心和行動了。

今天,我們已經得到了進入這條活路的祕訣,讓我們不要把這祕訣藏起來,而是勇敢地「走出來」。耶穌愛你~
