中华领袖复兴研习会2016:耶稣实力的秘诀

中华领袖复兴研习会2016:耶稣实力的秘诀

康希牧师在第二天的研习会上鼓励会众勇敢地梦想,带着信心向神祷告,相信那从无有创造出万有的神,也能为信祂的人成就大事。 由新加坡城市丰收教会主办的「2016中华领袖复兴研习会」进入第二天。当天研习会从早上7点的祷告会开始时就充满了圣灵的同在。在三场聚会中,城市丰收教会主任牧师康希与会众分享到「耶稣的安息」、「耶稣的实力」及「耶稣的默想」,每场聚会充满神大能的同在与信心的恩膏。 耶稣的安息 康牧师在信息一开始时谈到:「我们要努力工作,但不要过度工作。」而其中平衡的关键就在于「与主同工」。过度工作往往使人劳苦、困乏与挣扎,但「与主同工」却会使人进入属神的安息之中。 路加福音5:1-11说到彼得整夜劳力但没有铺到鱼,之后因依从耶稣的话而得了满满的渔获。牧师教导说,彼得为着自己的生计、凭着自己的力量来捕鱼,甚至整夜劳力、过度工作时,他不但没有捕到鱼,反而感到劳苦和挫败。康牧师说,这是撒旦的系统,要人盲目的劳作–跑得快,但却没有去到什么地方。最后牺牲了家人、健康,还有与神的关系。 当彼得依从耶稣的话、与主同工,甚至做出违反渔夫常识的事,在大白天且在水深之处下网捕鱼时有了意想不到的效果。这同时也显明了,与主同工有时会要求人们做出超越人类理智的决定,因为「信心是以『不可能』为粮」。 康牧师更进一步谈到,耶稣给了彼得这么多鱼,不是让他变得更贪婪,而是让彼得能专注于他生命真正的目的与呼召-成为得人的渔夫。同样地,每一个基督徒也必须满心相信上帝已经预备好所有供需问题的解决之道,使信徒们无须为了生计而劳苦和挣扎,而是能专注在上帝所赋予的命定之上。 耶稣的实力 在这一场聚会中,康牧师引用了《哈佛商业评论》所做的分析调查,说明一个人若要成为世界级的运动选手或企业执行长,就必须在四个层面拥有强大的能力,包含:身体、情绪、心理及灵命,耶稣基督在这四个层面都展现了坚强的实力,而这实力的关键在于:被击倒以后,可以多快恢复、再次站起来。 在身体方面,从耶稣在地上的服事经历,以及在十字架上受痛苦时的作为,可以看见耶稣的确拥有十分强健的体魄。同样地,基督徒的身体就是圣灵的殿,若他们身体虚弱,就容易受到试探与攻击,不但无法保持恩膏,也无法对神的声音敏锐,因此,康牧师鼓励会众要照顾并锻炼好自己的身体。 在情绪方面,圣经提供许多线索,显明耶稣的各种情绪,特别是祂在克西马尼园的祷告,祂心里甚是忧伤,但耶稣却没有让这情绪拦阻祂完成天父的旨意,也没有让各种反对的声音影响祂爱人的决定,耶稣拥有强大的情绪实力,祂的心拥有极大的容量。若基督徒渴望像耶稣一样,那么就必须学习:(1)饶恕、(2)感恩、(3)在上帝的同在里经历祂,这三件事帮助我们将心扩张开来。 在这场聚会结束前,康牧师特别为着曾经受过各种伤害,需要饶恕与释放的朋友祷告,许多人在上帝的同在中流下眼泪,并将所要饶恕的对象和自己的心带到上帝面前,圣灵的大能与释放的恩膏充满在整场聚会中。 耶稣的默想 延续上一堂聚会的信息,康希牧师谈及耶稣「心理与灵命的实力」,这实力来自于耶稣对神话语的默想与所领受的启示。祂在禁食四十天后,立即而毫无迟疑地用神的话语抵挡魔鬼撒旦的试探,这显示了耶稣的实力。 “若我们也渴望拥有刚强的生命,就必须昼夜思想神的话,让神的道如同种子一般深深植入我们的心中。”康希牧师将「默想」比喻为「牛的反刍」,鼓励会众要不断反复咀嚼神的话语,直到把这话语里的养分通通嚼出来,并让这话语不只停留在脑海,更是进入到内心和潜意识中,如此一来,当困境来到、试探来袭或属灵争战发动时,便能够立即且迅速的反应,以神的话语来面对所有的处境。 在信息的尾声,康牧师鼓励大家勇敢的去梦想,梦想那些自己认为不可能的事,并明确的去想见那梦想实现时的具体模样,然后带着信心向神祷告,相信那从无有创造出万有的神,也能为信祂的人成就大事。康牧师和耀珊也特别为在场所有教会的主任牧师夫妇以及城市丰收教会的全职同工们按手祷告,分赐信心的灵在所有牧者同工身上。…
