一起来庆祝 Are You Coming to the Celebration?

    一起来庆祝

    经节:他对父亲说:「我服事你这多年,从来没有违背过你的命,你并没有给我一只山羊羔,叫我和朋友一同快乐。」(路加福音十五章29节)

    神相当关注,要将人由死亡带向生命。当人由悖逆回转向他的时候,他的心何等欢喜。如果你的心体贴天父的心意,若有罪人回转向神的时候,你一样也会欢喜快乐的。

    耶稣所说慈父与浪子的比喻,不只着重在那败家子老二的身上,大儿子也同样是个不听话的儿子。大儿子一年又一年地为父亲作工,等待将来得到回报。他看到弟弟的叛逆使父亲心碎,而当弟弟返家时,他却不与父亲共同欢喜快乐,一点也不高兴看到父亲欢喜的心情。他所关心的是自己及没有受到公平对待。他觉得自己是受害者,并且完全错过与父亲同庆祝的祝福。

    我们有可能会年复一年地事奉神,而心却远离神。你可能在教会担负最重要的事工,心中却充满苦毒,因为周围没有人愿意与你分担重担。你可能全心注意自己在主里的劳苦,以至于神在你周围的人身上行神迹,你一点也不高兴。

    倘若你事奉神是责任或兴趣使然,不是出于喜乐与感恩,你会觉得自己是受害者。当你被事奉的重担压得喘不过气时,你会嫉妒那些在主里经验喜乐的人。这不是天父计划要给你的丰盛生活。一同来庆祝,花时间与神在一起,分享他的喜乐!

    Are You Coming to the Celebration?

 

    So he answered and said to his father, "Lo, thesemany years I have been serving you; I never transgressed your commandment atany time; and yet you never gave me a young goat, that I might make merry withmy friends." (Luke 15:29)

    God is concerned with bringingpeople from death to life. His heart rejoices over each person who returns toHim from a time of rebellion. If your heart is like God’s, you, too, willrejoice when a sinner returns to the Father.

   Jesus’ parable about the prodigalson is as much about the older son who remained as it is about the wayward sonor the father. Year after year the older son labored for his father, waitingfor a future reward. He had seen the brokenness his brother’s rebellion hadcaused his father. Yet when his brother returned, the older son did not rejoicewith his father. He felt no pleasure in seeing his father happy. His concernwas for himself and the injustice he perceived he’d been dealt. He felt like amartyr and totally missed the blessing of celebrating with his father.

   It is possible to serve God yearafter year and yet have a heart that is far from Him. You might be one of thehardest workers in your church and yet be filled with bitterness because othersdo not share your load. You can become so preoccupied with your spirituallabors that when God works miracles in the lives of those around you, youcannot rejoice.

   If you serve the Lord out of duty orhabit, but not out of joy and gratitude, you will feel like a martyr. You willenvy those who are experiencing joy in the Lord while you feel weighed down bythe work you are doing. This is not the abundant life your Father has plannedfor you. Come to the celebration, spend time with the Father, and share in Hisjoy!
