心裏的力量剛強起來了

“[14]因此,我在父面前屈膝[16]求他按著他豐盛的榮耀,藉著他的靈,叫你們心裡的力量剛強起來,”  (弗3:14,16)

保羅特別為以弗所教會的信徒祈禱,因為他知道活出心意更新的生活不是憑個人的意志力來維繫的。參加靈修活動所能達到的 “屬靈的熱心”, 必然會隨著時間的流逝而消退的。但是心中的熱心仍然須要繼續興旺。要如何做到呢?

He Is Sovereign

“Which he will display at the proper time–he who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords.” (1Tim 6:15 ESV)

Jesus Christ is sovereign. His birth, life, death, resurrection, and ascension prove that He is the King of kings and Lord of lords. He shoulders the responsibility of governing the people, and His rule extends into human hearts. The titles He bears characterize this new kingdom of Jesus’ dominion. He will be called “Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace”.

He Is Exalted with a Name above Every Name

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:9-11)

The exaltation of Jesus reached its climax in the lordship of Christ. At the name of Jesus, every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that He is Lord to the glory of God the Father. His was the hard way to glory — through His death on the cross and resurrection. However, in due time, God has highly exalted Him to the highest place, the place that He deserved as God’s equal, and to the position in which He is publicly proclaimed before heaven and earth.

All-Sufficient Grace

Even as Christians, we all have our own problems. But what happens when we are in need of help and no one can help us? And what if, while we are weak, others come to us with their problems? Perhaps we would all be too tired or burdened to really care for one another. Or perhaps we would feel discouraged and helpless. Unfortunately, I see this happen quite often in church and it’s an issue that I struggle with. Continue reading

He Controls

And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!” (Mark 4:41)

The disciples panicked when the storm on the sea of Galilee threatened their lives. In fear, they asked their sleeping Master if He did not care that they perished. Then, Jesus arose from His sleep and rebuked the wind and the waves, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!”. And there suddenly came a great calm. Witnessing His supernatural power over nature, the disciples responded in fear, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!”
