10/16/2022 一天的難處一天當就夠了 ~鍾卓權牧師

我們每一個人都應該在有「今日」生命氣息時好好珍惜去認識我們的創造主、我們的神、接受上帝為我們預備的救贖恩典,與祂和好,趁著尚有生命氣息時,讓神帶領我們渡過每一個「今日」。雅各書 第四章第十四節後半段說我們原來是一片雲霧,出現少時就不見了。而在第十四節一開始就將原因指出說:「其實明天如何,你們還不知道。你們的生命是什麼呢?」


馬太福音 6:33 節又說:「你們要先求祂的國和祂的義,這些東西都要加給你們了。」所以屬神的兒女要「先求祂的國和祂的義」,讓神在我們心中掌王權,居首位。這樣的生活是我們應當向上帝所祈求的,馬太福音 6:33 強調要先「求」祂的國和祂的義,這裡的「求」字是具有特別的用意,這個「求」字是「尋求」的意思 。因此我們屬神兒女的人要先「尋求」神的國和祂的義。換一句話說、天國子民的人生首要目標是先「尋求」神,認識祂是永恆國度的主宰,並且讓祂的公義彰顯在我們生活中,只要我們以神的心意為重

,神會紀念和看顧我們的需求,充充足足地加給我們一切所需的東西。


生命的態度應當是一步一腳印去體會神豐盛的慈愛,若是生活行同走馬看花,不珍惜生命。沒有認真地思考神造人的目的,辜負了 衪的美意,以自我為中心,虛度此生浪費生命,豈不是可惜可悲嗎? 從另一個角度來看,往往有人為生活而焦慮,其焦慮可能是源於杞人憂天,庸人自擾,導致身心疲憊,深陷憂鬱狀態。合乎神心意的事是不要輕看我們今天的責任,就是把握現在,把分內的事情做的妥當,活在當下,腳踏實地把分內的事情完成。每當我們吃飯時好好進食、睡覺時好好睡眠、讀書時好好學習、運動時好好健身、工作時好好作事、休閒時好好安歇。將「今日」首要之事放在該放的地位,就是要先「尋求」祂的國和祂的義,不要讓「明天」的難處和需要成為「今日」的憂慮,諸如吃甚麼,喝甚麼,穿甚麼。


馬太福音 6:34 節說:「所以,不要為明天憂慮,因為明天自有明天的憂慮。一天的難處一天當就夠了」


我們當慎重思考在我的生命中我當怎麼「尋求」神的國和神的義,面對困難時,是否敢於憑著信心,願意把祂的國和祂的義當為最優先的人生目標。主啊、求祢加添力量賜憐憫和帶領。阿們!

Each Day Has Enough Trouble Of Its Own ~Pastor Bernie Chung

Each of us should know our Creator, who is our God, and receive the redemptive grace God has prepared for us. We should be reconciled to God, and let him lead us while we still have the breath of life, and to live one day at a time. Chapter 4 of James reminds us that we are like a mist that disappears after a while. The first half of v.14 states the obvious reason: “Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life?” (James 4:14a (NIV))


Matthew 6:33 also says: “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” We the children of God must allow God to reign in our hearts first and foremost. We should seek God through prayers as our first priority in life. Seek also means actively look or to get close to our eternal God. To seek God we must know that God is the king of the heavenly kingdom, and let his righteousness and justice manifest in our daily life. As long as we put God’s will first, He will look after us. God will remember our needs, and His thoughtfulness and generosity will astound us.


We should take our spiritual journey one step at a time. What a pity if we’ve overlooked or failed to fully appreciate God’s abundant love along the way? It is also a tragedy if we squander our life letting everyday pass us by without knowing life’s purpose. Conversely, there are many people who are anxious about nothing. Their anxiety may be originated from unfounded worries resulted from over thinking. Depressions can set in that can affect both their mind and body and cause suffering. We must realize that following God’s will should not be a burden if we do what God has assigned to us properly. We should seize the moment and serve our Lord in a down-to-earth fashion. Try to eat well when we eat, sleep well when we sleep, study well when we read, exercise well when we exercise, work well when we work, and rest well when we have leisure. The priority of today must be set firmly in place: To seek God’s kingdom and his righteousness first, and do not let the problems and needs of tomorrow become the worries of today. What to eat, what to drink, and what to wear are trivial questions indeed!


Matthew 6:34 says, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”


The question we need to ask ourselves is: How should I seek the kingdom of God and the righteousness of God in my life? When faced with difficulties and needs, are we brave enough to rely on our faith? Are we willing to seek God’s kingdom and his righteousness and make it a top priority in life? Lord, make our answer a resounding: YES! Change our lives LORD. Amen!

5/21/2023 信心和順服之旅 ~鍾卓權牧師

信心能趨使我們獻身於上帝和祂對我們生命的計劃,是重生之後正常的回應。 主耶穌在升天之前,馬太福音 28:16-20 中記載衪告訴門徒要將福音傳給萬民。 然而,信徒中有不少的人並沒有為完成這個大使命而努力,至少不是熱烈地或者踴躍地去執行這個命令。 是什麼原因阻礙了我們 呢?恐懼很可能是原因之一。 例如,如果傳福音意味著離鄉背井,很可能會擔心新環境與治安的問題,文化上的差異,家人和朋友的反對。 我們也

5/7/2023 一天一步順服神 ~鍾卓權牧師

在我們的生活中,順服神的旨意是否會成爲一種負擔?跟隨神的行動是否是一種冒險? 我們經常認爲遵循神的旨意是爲了避免或是不願承擔後果。而有時,我們還以爲改變自己的計劃去順服神可能也是一種沒有把握的冒險。 將順服神的旨意視爲負擔的原因是因爲我們認爲跟隨主是要付出極大的代價。然而,我們也要知道,遵行上帝的旨意並不是僅僅局限於人生中的重大事件,其實同樣也包括在生活小事上的順服。腓立比書4章6節告訴我們,應當

4/9/2023 復活節之後 ~周錦榮執事

七日的頭一天,天剛亮的時候,婦女來到耶穌墓前,想為祂身體薰香,以表示敬愛,卻發現墓石打開,不見主的身體,守墓的兵丁也不在。主的使者向她們顯現,首次宣告主耶穌己復活,並要她們轉告門徒這消息及往加利利見耶穌,耶穌會在他們以先往加利利。在途中,婦女與主相遇,再次要她們告訴門徒往加利利相見 (太28:5-10)。當年十二歲的耶穌在耶路撒冷過節,遲遲未走,與殿裡教師學習討論(路2:46),但現在卻催速門徒回
