August 28, sermon by Pastor Ji

Hebrews 11: 13-16: 13 All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth. 14 People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. 15 If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. 16 Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.

11: 13这些人都是存着信心死的,并没有得着所应许的;却从远处望见,且欢喜迎接,又承认自己在世上是客旅,是寄居的。14说这样话的人是表明自己要找一个家乡。 15他们若想念所离开的家乡,还有可以回去的机会。16他们却羡慕一个更美的家乡,就是在天上的。所以神被称为他们的神,并不以为耻,因为他已经给他们预备了一座城。

在难处时要把焦点放在神的身上。信心也是神给的–> Hebrews 12:2。所以在困难面前,应该是兴奋。因为神不知道要为我做什么,开辟新天地。用他的话来招我们离开熟悉的家(这不正是我么…)

我们的目光要…

1)远:亚伯拉罕,以撒,雅各。他们都没有在世上得到神的应许,但却有信心。在信心当中他们看见了应许。虽然有落差,但那是肉体上的不足,只看当下是撒旦的诱惑。而信心让我们把眼光放到神的话语和应许上,都是从神来的远见。当亚伯拉罕觉得有落差的时候,神引他出帐篷,开导他,因为亚伯拉罕一直追求神的话语,才能听见神的声音。

2)准:在时间不多的旅程里,会更有目的性地行动,而且会以远方的家为考虑。在人生的旅程里,应该把时间花在神要我们专注的事情上。“在她的人生道路上,这是她做的一个决定,并且是祷告寻求的。你的否定是什么意义?你否定的神的应许又是什么意思?”“你爱她,难道神不爱她么?”季牧师讲了一个发生在他自己身上的门徒训练。同样也展示给孩子看,神是真实的,而不光是说说玩玩的的信仰。因为信心的关系,神带领了他走出‘帐篷’
