在爱里得以完全 Made Complete in Love

loveneverfailsGod’s love never fails and this is what we need the most. Indeed, without love, we are nothing. Love comes with the spirit, therefore, whatever comes without the spirit and only comes from the knowledge and behavior will cause us to receive a lot of accusations from Satan so that we will not truly see God’s love and finally, we can’t even love people around us. As I’ve shared before that many times, I expect men loves more than God, thus it leads to envy, lousiness and conditional. And frequently, I think only when I’m not weak, I’m able to love God and men. However, all these only brings me more accusation because I can’t be perfect to love God and men, but only when I come before God with my imperfection (sin/weaknesses), that is when God’s perfection (grace) is revealed and increased in me. Therefore when I see myself a great sinner (不能), I realized I need more of God’s love rather than man’s love. God’s love has great mercy. The Lord’s mercy covers my  transgressions, gives me deliverance from darkness/Satan, fills me with His unconditional love and compassion, gives me the strength to stand up and gives me great hope for the Lord. Even if hurts or scars still existed, and sometimes when I think about them, I will feel so hurt and painful, yet when I look at the ‘Cross of Mercy’ (love & forgiveness), God comforts my spirit through His love & understanding and I will not feel so much hurt anymore because I only see/accept ‘I am loved and righteous in Him’.   

lamentations3_22-23This message had touched me once again with 3 truth though I’ve heard a few times before but I know I need to be reminded…

1) Being Loved: Though it seems like I’ve experience more failure in my life but in actual fact God is bringing me closer to Him and to feel His love. When I am hurt, I come before God and said, ‘Lord I feel so hurt’. When I sinned against God again and I said, ‘ Lord, I’ve sinned against you again, what should I do’? Each time through Pastor had shared from the pulpit message, God said, ‘I’ve already forgiven you and had first loves you before you’ve sinned’. This was keep repeating many times in my mind. Yes, God first loves me, that is the reason He shed the blood for us and we had become God beloved child so no matter what kind of problems or even we we fall down, if we understood the mystery of God first loves us, we will be able to face God and men and see everything that has God’s love and perfect will in it. 

2) Sin increase, grace increase all the more: This really touched me a lot. Maybe some of you may wondered, why I kept on talking about sinned. To me, when I indulge into worldly love or disbelief in God, I’ve sinned against Him and so this has been always my struggles. But because of sin increase, grace increase more, I see  myself is not totally hopeless and able to see more love and hope from God.

3) Conscience: Yes, conscience can be good but also can kill me. Just one mistake can torture me like hell and also the accusations is so real that it pressure me so much but God still loves me ‘just as I am’, He loves me as a child of God, even though I have many weaknesses. Sometimes I know God has forgiven me, but I still feel myself unclean. Then I realized this was cause by my conscience which Pastor had shared. Although till now, I still have many of my own conscience, so the more I need to restore God’s conscience/righteous in order to have full liberty, and at the end of everything, God just wants my heart for Him(relationship), that’s all.

Grace of forgiveness

Made complete in love is only through the love with spirit. The spirit of love needs entire life to learn, for me I find it quite difficult as I’ve shared before how I tried to learn to love my brother even though he has many unlikeable weaknesses, but I believe, even if I fail again, God will never give up on me, as long as I keep continue to look at the ‘Great Grace of Forgiveness’, and not look at Satan accusations, I am able to love the people around. Let’s continue to learn the spirit of love, able to forgive ourselves much then able to love others much. When we receive the mystery of Love God and Men deeper, we will be able to receive the strength to live out the love through our speech and action and even able to sacrifice for one another.

Below is a song named ‘’Your Grace Still Amazes Me’. Let’s enjoy His love and grace of this song.

下面是一首歌,名称为’袮恩典仍然惊奇我‘ ‘。 让我们来享受这首诗歌里面所说的神的爱与恩典。

 

jesusandchild 神的爱是永不止息,这是我们最需要的爱。事实上,如果没有爱,我们就算不得什么。爱是从灵来的。若没有灵的爱而只有知识和行为,我们必会得到很多撒旦的控告,我们不能完全看到上帝的爱,并且我们也不能爱我们旁边的人。正如我之前分享过我很多时候只求人的爱多过神爱,这导致对人有羡慕感,自卑感和有条件性的爱人。也有很多时候我认为只有在我不软弱时,我才可以爱神爱人,然而这些只会叫我受到更多的控告感,因为我是不完全的,不能完全的爱神爱人,只有当我的不完全(罪/软弱)来到上帝的面前,上帝的完全(恩典)才能在我身上彰显和多起来。所以每当我看到我自己是个大罪人(不能)时,我发现我更需要上帝的爱多过人的爱。上帝的爱是有大怜悯。上帝的怜悯遮盖了我所有的过犯,拯救我出黑暗/撒旦,充满我上帝无条件的爱和慈悲,并给我能力站起来和对神有盼望。甚至仍然存在的伤害或疤痕,有时想起来又会感到受伤和心痛,不过当我一仰望‘十字架的怜悯’(爱与饶恕),上帝接着祂的爱和理解再次安慰我的心灵而我不会觉得这么受伤了,因为我只看见/接受‘我是蒙爱的,在祂里面是已经被称义了。

这个信息再次感动我接着3个事实,虽然我已听过好几次但是我知道我需要一直被提醒。。

1) 蒙爱:虽然我的生命里看起来经历了很多挫折感和失败感。但是实际上,上帝是要我与祂的关系更加亲近,能感受到祂对我的爱。当我受伤时,我来到上帝的面前说,‘主啊,我受伤了。’当我得罪神时,我对上帝说,‘主啊,我又得罪你了,我该怎么办‘?接着牧师在讲台所传讲的信息,上帝就说,‘我已经饶恕你了,在你还没犯罪前,我已经先爱你了‘。这句话一直反复在我脑海里。是的,上帝已先爱我所以祂才为我流宝血,叫我能成为上帝的女儿,无论我在什么问题里或者又软弱跌到,如果我们能明白上帝先爱我们的这奥秘,我们必能面对神和人,也能够凡事上看到上帝的爱和美意。

2) 罪显多少,恩典就更显多:这句话很感动我。也许有些人会觉得我为什么一直强调罪。对我来说,每当我放纵在这世界的爱或不信上帝时,我就是得罪了神。这是我一直在挣扎的事,不过因为罪有显多少,主的恩典更显多,所以我看到我不是完全没希望,我看到上帝的更多的爱也更看到在主里有希望与盼望。

3) 良心:是的,良心是好的不过也会叫我致命。一个错误会折磨我如地狱一般一样,而控告感也很真实地把我的心灵压的很重,不过上帝仍然爱我,’我就是我了‘,虽然我还有很多软弱,上帝爱的是我这女儿。但有时侯我知道上帝已经原谅我了,可是我还是觉得自己不够圣洁,直到牧师对我说这是因为来自我的良心。虽然直到现在我还有很多自己的良心,所以我更加需要回复神的良心/义, 故此,我才能得到完全的自由。在一切的终点,上帝唯一只要得着我们的心(关系),就这样好了。

在爱里得以完全是只有接着有灵的爱。爱的灵是需要一生来学习的,对我来说是一件不容易的事,如我之前所分享过我尝试学习去爱我的大哥,虽然他有很多不可爱的地方,不过我深信,就算我再失败了,上帝是不会放弃我的,只要我继续望着‘赦罪大恩’,不看撒旦的控告,我相信我更能够去爱人。让我们继续学习爱的灵,能够饶恕自己多少就能够爱人多少。这叫我们也更深的得着爱神爱人的奥秘,使我们拥有能力来活出爱接着言语,行为和甚至到能够为人牺牲的爱。

<Romans 5:8> But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

罗5:8》惟有基督在我们还作罪人的时候为我们死,神的爱就在此向我们显明了。
