慕安德烈每日灵修 God's Best Secrets by Andrew Murray

上帝的同在

经文: 「凡我所吩咐你们的,都教训他们遵守,我就常与你们同在,直到世界的末了。」(马太福音廿八:20)

耶稣拣选十二个门徒,就是「要他们常和自己同在,也要差他们去传道。」(可三14);与祂常常紧密相连的生活,是出去传福音最佳的装备。
门徒们深刻体会到与耶稣同在是何等大的恩典,一想到耶稣要离他们而去,就感到无比的忧伤,因为和耶稣同在已成为他们生活中不可或缺的一部份,他们很难想象若耶稣不在,他们的日子要如何过。为了安慰他们,耶稣给他们一个应许,就是等祂升天以后,天父要差派圣灵下来,与他们时时刻刻同在,那是一种他们未曾体会更深层、更亲密的关系。做为门徒的首要呼召——常常与耶稣同在,和祂时刻紧密相连,这是传福音、做见证有效果的秘诀之一。
当耶稣吩咐使徒们到世界各地,向万民传福音时,祂应许他们:「我就常与你们同在,直到世界的末了。」
上帝的仆人都曾有这样的体会,就是若没有上帝的同在与赐福,那么他们所传讲的信息、所做的见证,有如鸣的锣、响的钹一样没有效果;反之,他们心中若充满上帝的同在——这是个秘密武器——无论他们传道或做见证,都有从上面来的智慧与感动,也满有圣灵的能力,所以他们敢在仇敌面前,夸赞被钉十架的耶稣是得胜者。门徒们不会为耶稣的形体不再与他们同在而忧伤哀痛,他们知道借着圣灵,耶稣要在他们心中激励他们、指导他们,使他们所作的圣工有效果。
在各样的圣工上,无论传讲上帝的话,或者与人协谈,都要有意识地感觉到这一切都是凭着信心,依靠上帝同在的能力,若不然,我们所作的都属人的努力,没有新鲜感、没有属天的能力。总之,惟有常常等候在上帝脚前,让祂的气息吹进我们心坎,让祂的圣灵膏抹我们的心,我们所作的才能带出果效与能力。是的,圣经应许我们:「我就常与你们同在!」

 

THE ABIDING PRESENCE

Scripture: "La, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world"— MATT, xxviii. 20.

When the Lord chose His twelve disciples, it was "that they should be with Him, and that He might send them forth to preach" (Mark Hi. 14). A life in fellowship with Himself was to be their preparation and their fitness for the work of preaching.

So deeply were the disciples conscious of this having been their great privilege, that when Christ spoke of His leaving them to go to the Father, their hearts were filled with great sorrow. The presence of Christ had become indispensable to them; they could not think of living without Him. To comfort them, Christ gave them the promise of the Holy Spirit, with the assurance that they then would have Himself in His heavenly presence, in a sense far deeper and more intimate than they ever had known on earth. The law of their first vocation remained unchanged: to be with Him, to live in unbroken fellowship with Him, would be the secret of power to preach and to testify of Him.

When Christ gave them the Great Commission to go into all the world and to preach the Gospel to every creature, He added the words: "Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world."

For all time the principle is to hold good for all His servants that without the experience of His presence ever abiding with them, their preaching would have no power. The secret of their strength would be the living testimony that Jesus Christ was every moment with them, inspiring and directing and strengthening them. It was this that made them so bold in preaching Him as the Crucified One in the midst of His enemies. They never for a moment regretted His bodily absence; they had Him with them, and in them, in the divine power of the Holy Spirit.

In all the work of the minister and the missionary, everything depends on the consciousness, through a living faith, of the abiding presence of the Lord with His servant, the living experience of the presence of Jesus as an essential element in preaching the Gospel. If this be clouded, work becomes a human effort, without the freshness and the power of the heavenly life. And nothing can bring back the power and the blessing but a return to the Master's feet, for Him to breathe into the heart, in divine power. His blessed word: "Lo, I am with you alway!"
