DAY 90 (2020) - Honey, it's time to get up! (Please click here for English podcast)



Silence

1.   Put on your “brakes” and stop for a moment of silence
2.   Wait for God. Breathe deep for God's peace and feel His presence. Exhale your worries.

Praise and Thanksgiving

1.   Think through your day, all the times that made you smile
2.   Thank God for all those moments, and for all those people

Confession and Repentance (Subjective Shifting Devotion Method http://bishopsilas.blogspot.ca/2009/08/count-down-5-subject-shifting-devotion.html)

1.  Pray for the Holy Spirit to shine on you that you are able to discover your sins and be willing to repent:



     “Dear Holy Spirit, shine your light into the places of darkness in my life. Show me my sins, everything that blocks me from encountering God and having Jesus as my Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”



2.  Through the Holy Spirit, examine yourself for a short silence and then pray:

     "Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for our sins and being victorious over death and sin. I confess my sin to you(pause, to tell Jesus what the Holy Spirit has shown you). Forgive my sins by your blood and help me follow you. Holy Spirit, fill me that I may be able to receive your gift to love God and His people. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."

The Word, Time with Abba (Psalm 45:1-17, Deuteronomy 13:1-15:23; Luke  8:40-9:6; Proverbs 12:5-7)


    Today's main passage:
    46 But Jesus said, “Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.”
47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. 48 Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you.Go in peace.”
49 While Jesus was still speaking, someone came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” he said. “Don’t bother the teacher anymore.”
50 Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.”
51 When he arrived at the house of Jairus, he did not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John and James, and the child’s father and mother. 52 Meanwhile, all the people were wailing and mourningfor her. “Stop wailing,” Jesus said. “She is not dead but asleep.”
53 They laughed at him, knowing that she was dead. 54 But he took her by the hand and said, “My child, get up!” 55 Her spirit returned, and at once she stood up. Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat. 56 Her parents were astonished, but he ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened.
Luke 8:46-56


Let's have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passage we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him.

    My Listening
    The topic I received today from Jesus is: Honey, it's time to get up!

    Timothy Keller explains what did it mean of Jesus saying to the little girl, "My child, get up!" in his book Jesus the King.

    He says, "This is a pet name, a diminutive term of endearment. Since this is a diminutive that a other would use with a little girl, probably the best translation is "honey". 

    He says, "Jesus is facing death, the most implacable, inexorable enemy of the human race and such is his power that he holds this child by the hand and gently lifts her right up through it. "Honey, it's time to get up."

I sincerely hope that you have faith that Jesus is facing COVID-19, the most implacable, inexorable enemy of the whole world that he is holding you by the hand and gently say to you, "Honey, it's time to get up and get out of that darkness so that you can enjoy the sweetness of being with me!"

     
     Dear Lord Jesus, 
     Help us to have that faith knowing that you are holding our hands to wake us up and get us out of darkness that we can enjoy the sweetness of being with you.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
    
     Reflect on these questions:
     1. How can you experience that intimacy of Jesus calling you "honey"? 
  
      2.  What is your next step to make that happen?

第 90天(2020年) - Honey,係時候起床了! (請按此處收聼廣東話 )







安靜
1.  停下來. 靜一靜
2.  等候主. 深呼吸經歷主之平安, 感受主的臨在, 呼出你的憂慮

讚美及感恩
1.  思想最近使你開心歡笑的時刻
2.  為那些時刻及有關的人感恩

知罪,認罪,悔改 (Subjective Shifting Devotion Method 轉位靈修法) http://bishopsilas.blogspot.ca/2009/08/count-down-5-subject-shifting-devotion.html)

1. 求聖靈光照,使你知罪,願意認罪悔改 
     "親愛的聖靈, 求你光照我心靈的深處, 使我看見我的罪, 我和主耶穌的阻隔, 
        求你幫助, 奉主耶穌基督名求。阿們。"

2. 透過聖靈的工作, 安靜一刻, 省察自己, 之後祈禱:
     「親愛的主耶穌,感謝你為我的罪釘死在十字架上,我願意在你面前承認我的罪(凡聖靈光照到的,請逐一說出),求你用你的寶血赦免我的罪,我願意打開心門讓你作我的救主,求你救贖我,我願意一生跟隨你讓你作我生命的主,求你帶領我。聖靈,求你充滿我,使我得著恩賜及力量去事奉主、見證主。奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。」


親親爸父, 聆聽主話(詩篇 45:1-17申命記 13:1-15:23; 路加福音 8:40-9:6;  箴言 12:5-7)

新約聖經廣東話聆聽版: https://www.hkbible.org/revelation

今日的主題經文:
     46 耶 穌 說 : 總 有 人 摸 我 , 因 我 覺 得 有 能 力 從 我 身 上 出 去 。
47 那 女 人 知 道 不 能 隱 藏 , 就 戰 戰 兢 兢 的 來 俯 伏 在 耶 穌 腳 前 , 把 摸 他 的 緣 故 和 怎 樣 立 刻 得 好 了 , 當 著 眾 人 都 說 出 來 。
48 耶 穌 對 他 說 : 女 兒 , 你 的 信 救 了 你 ; 平 平 安 安 的 去 罷 !
49 還 說 話 的 時 候 , 有 人 從 管 會 堂 的 家 裡 來 , 說 : 你 的 女 兒 死 了 , 不 要 勞 動 夫 子 。
50 耶 穌 聽 見 就 對 他 說 : 不 要 怕 , 只 要 信 ! 你 的 女 兒 就 必 得 救 。
51 耶 穌 到 了 他 的 家 , 除 了 彼 得 、 約 翰 、 雅 各 , 和 女 兒 的 父 母 , 不 許 別 人 同 他 進 去 。
52 眾 人 都 為 這 女 兒 哀 哭 捶 胸 。 耶 穌 說 : 不 要 哭 。 他 不 是 死 了 , 是 睡 著 了 。
53 他 們 曉 得 女 兒 已 經 死 了 , 就 嗤 笑 耶 穌 。
54 耶 穌 拉 著 他 的 手 , 呼 叫 說 : 女 兒 , 起 來 罷 !
55 他 的 靈 魂 便 回 來 , 他 就 立 刻 起 來 了 。 耶 穌 吩 咐 給 他 東 西 吃 。
56 他 的 父 母 驚 奇 得 很 ; 耶 穌 囑 咐 他 們 , 不 要 把 所 作 的 事 告 訴 人 。

路加福音 8:46-56


現在讓你有一個安靜的時刻,給聖靈一個空間,讓主耶穌可以藉着剛才讀過的經文,親自對你説話。


 我的聆聽
日我從主耶穌領受的主題是 Honey,係時候起床了!

Timothy Keller 在他的 "被釘十架的王"中解釋耶穌復活睚魯死了的女那句: "女兒,起來吧!"

他説 "是一位母親會用來稱呼小女兒的親暱叫法,最貼切的翻譯也許是 "honey"。中文譯本作"寶貝",不過我覺得直接用 "honey"更適合。

Timothy Keller 話: "耶穌面對死亡 - 這個人類最無情的死敵,滿有能力的牽起孩子的手,溫柔地喊醒她:  Honey,係時候起床了! 

願望你現在能有信心知道耶穌面對 "新冠肺炎" - 這個世界現在面對最無情的死敵,滿有能力的牽起你的手,溫柔地喊醒你: Honey, 係時候起身脫離黑暗,享受神同在的温馨!

     
     親愛的主耶穌, 
    求你使我們有信心知道你現在滿有能力的牽起我們的手,把我們從黑暗中醒過來,享受你和我們同在的温馨,奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。 奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。

      省察問題 
      1. 你怎様可以經歷耶穌叫你做 Honey那份親蜜 ?


  2. 你的下一步是什麼行動?
   

     家庭角落
找機會與家人一起分享今日的領受。

讚美
