肢体虽多, 仍是一个身子 Though All Its Parts Are Many, They Form One Body

 

holy-spirit Everyone comes from different backgrounds, different character, different education,   different gifts, etc… No matter how different (good or bad) we are, Immanuel God is with us, the ‘Holy Spirit’ in us is the same that no one can take away. Through the  Holy Spirit that illuminate us, we realized ourselves were a great sinner but this also bring us more hunger (closer to God) to God and this is the greatest gift that God had given to us. With this greatest gift, all our differences we were once feel inferior of are able to give thanks and also had become the greatest blessing to the people around us.

As I’ve shared before that I’m always wanted to be successful and I always have this inferiority. Because of these, things that can be seen has become a comparison to other peoples. People who are good at studies, work, characters, relationship and also people who are rich, when I see all these, it makes me unable to see myself as an important child of God. I also never think of myself is good in anything, people may said that I’m good at this or that, but deeply in my heart I don’t feel in that way because of this comparison and inferiority. This kind of feeling is really terrible and torturing that I’m unable to control or hypnosis myself not to think in this way. Then one day, through many problems, God let me see how great a sinner I am. A sinner that are not worthy but yet completely loved and accepted by God. When I sees how God loves me with His unconditionally love, the inferiority and comparison has disappeared, because I see how important I am in God’s eye. This has also brought me to see that everyone has the same spirit like mine, weak yet so loved by God, even they are better than me but I’m able to give thanks to God for them. Although Satan still attacks me at times, just like Pastor had shared, when I confess ‘Jesus is my Lord’ who is all my problem solver, I am able to give thanks to God and tell satan that, ‘Yes, I am weak. Yes, I am slow. Yes, I don’t have high education. Yes, I am not rich. Yes, I am not so vocal but because of all these, God loves me more, bless me more (wisdom, power, testimony, spirit fruits, etc… ) and most importantly, God will use me with my ‘differences’ to comfort and bless people.

gift1 I am still learning in this area but God reminding me, ‘No matter how weak you’re seems to be, how different you are, how insignificant in man’s eyes, I want to use all of these to uplift you, to show how you are loved, blessed, and use for world evangelism’. So each of us are unique and special in God’s eyes, even if we are the smallest, God will use us miraculously to be able to bless and comfort many of those who are the same as us. I hope we are able to have the victory in this area so let us continue to rely on the Holy Spirit, pray and ready our heart to fight this spiritual battle.

每一个人来自不同的背景,不同的性格,不同的教育或学问,不同的恩赐,等等。。不管我们有多不同(好或坏),以马内利的主与我们同在,我们里面的‘圣灵’是‘一样’的,没有人可以夺走。接着圣灵的光照,我们发现自己是个大罪人,因此这也叫我们更加对上帝饥渴(靠近神),这就是上帝给我们最大的恩赐了。拥有这最大的恩赐,我们一切的不同叫我们自卑能够感恩也能成为最大的祝福我们旁边的人。

我曾经分享过我一直想要成功和我那自卑感的灵。因为这些,那能看得到的东西已成为了一个对别人比较的心。那些有学问好的人,工作好的人,性格好的人,人际关系好的人和那些有钱人,这一切都叫我不能够看见自己是上帝最重要的女儿。我是从来不认为我好在哪里,虽然有些人说我这个好那个好,但在我心里不是这么觉得,因为有这个比较和自卑感的心。这种感觉实在叫人很难受又很折磨,所以我无论怎样要控制或催眠我自己不要这样想但我还是不能做到。经过了很多问题,然后有一天上帝让我看到我是个大罪人,一个何等不配的罪人即仍然被上帝全然的接受和甚至更加的爱我,这使我更加靠近主十字架。但我看见上帝那无限的爱时,那叫我自卑和比较的心都不见了,因为我看到自己在上帝的眼里是多么的重要。这也叫我看见人人都和我一样的心灵,虽然软弱但是是被上帝所蒙爱的,甚至别人比我更好时,我也能够为他们来感谢上帝。我知道撒旦还是会来攻击我,就象牧师所分享的,当我承认‘耶稣是主’,是我一切问题解决着,我能够向上帝感恩然后对撒旦说,‘是的,我是软弱。’我是很慢。我是没有很高的学问。我是不有钱。我不是很会说话,但是因为这些没有的地方,我得到上帝的肯定就是上帝更加爱我,更加会祝福我(智慧,能力,见证,果子,等等。。)而更加重要的是,上帝必使用我那‘不同’的地方来安慰和祝福人。

我还在学习这个地方,不过上帝一直在提醒我,‘无论我看起来多么软弱,多么不同,在人的眼里多么微小,上帝一定会使用我,高举我,向我显明祂多么蒙爱,蒙福和蒙召‘。所以我们每一个人在上帝眼里是多么的独特与特别,就算我们是最小的,上帝还是会奇迹般地使用我们来安慰以及祝福那些和我们一样的人。我希望我们能够一起在这地方得胜,所以让我们一起继续靠圣灵,祷告和预备心来打这个属灵的战争。

prayer

But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
<2 Co 12:9-10>

在我小时候,我他对我说,我的恩典够你用的。因为我的能力,是在人的软弱上显得完全。所以我更喜欢夸自己的软弱,好叫基督的能力覆庇我。我为基督的缘故,就以软弱,凌辱,急难,逼迫,困苦,为可喜乐的。因我什么时候软弱,什么时候就刚强了。《林后12:9-10》
