「你們和不信的原不「相配」,不要同負一軛。義和不義有甚麼「相交」呢?光明和黑暗有甚麼「相通」呢?」「基督和彼列(彼列就是撒但的別名)有甚麼「相和」呢?信主的和不信主的有甚麼「相干」呢? 神的殿和偶像有甚麼「相同」呢?因為我們是永生神的殿,就如神曾說:我要在他們中間居住,在他們中間來往;我要作他們的神;他們要作我的子民。 又說:你們務要從他們中間出來,與他們分別;不要沾不潔淨的物,我就收納你們。我要作你們的父;你們要作我的兒女。這是全能的主說的。 

 

【今日信息】你可知道你與世人有六種不同?      By Rev. & Dr.  Andrew Tsai

 

 阿明是一個在政治界很有影響力的年輕人,剛剛信主没多久。他出身政治世家,因為他的特殊背景,所以他的一舉一動經常都是鎂光燈的焦點。

 

 他信主之後,心中有感動想要為主做見證,所以就公開表明他的信仰立場。沒想到一表明就馬上受到許多人的攻擊,把他過去的一些醜聞都掀出來,讓他非常難過。於是他就去找牧師協談,問牧師他當如何做,才能為主做見證?

 

 基督徒在世上,是世上的鹽,又是世上的光。『鹽』是講到如何進入這個世界去贏得靈魂;而『光』是講到如何照亮這個世界。因此我們是要身處進入這個世界,但又要與世界有所分別,而不是與世界分開。如果分開,我們就不能影響這個世界,不能改變這個世界。

 

 我們要如何才能與世界『分別』而不『分開』,影響世界而不被世界影響呢?

 

  我們需要做到這六種分別:(以下將和合本與現代中文譯本對照)

 

(1) 不相配:Do not be Yoked together

 

    『你們和不信的原不相配,不要同負一軛。』 --『不要跟不信的人共事;他們跟你們是不能同負一軛的。』

 

(2) 不相交:Do not in Common

 

   『義和不義有甚麼相交呢?』--『正和邪怎能合作呢?』

 

(3) 不相通:Do not Fellowship with

 

    『光明和黑暗有甚麼相通呢?』--『光明和黑暗怎能共存呢?』

 

(4) 不相合:Do not Harmony with

 

    『基督和彼列(彼列就是撒但的別名)有甚麼相和呢?』--『基督和魔鬼怎能協調呢?』

 

(5) 不相干:Do not Share Portion with

 

    『信主的和不信主的有甚麼相干呢?--信和不信的人有甚麽共同的地方呢?

 

(6) 不相同:Do not Agreement with

 

   『神的殿和偶像有甚麼相同呢?』--『上帝的聖殿和偶像怎能並立呢?』

 

 基督徒在世上,是神國的大使,是耶穌基督的代表,是有聖靈內住的人;因此,我們必須帶著使命住在地上,而不是隨波逐流,不是隨風起舞。我們如何能為主作見證呢?就是在這六方面與人有所不同,世人就能看出我們的聖潔。

 

    這個黑暗的世界,渴慕看見神的光,羨慕聖潔族類的生活,所以我們要持守這六方面的聖潔,才能為主發光。

 

    主啊!求祢幫助我,使我能與這個世界有分別,而不是分開,使我能成為聖潔像祢,求祢保守我們所有基督徒的見證,使我們能為主興起發光。

 

<</span>生活小點滴>  得勝的基督徒關鍵在於知道什麼要認同?也要知道甚麼必須與世界不同?

Good Parents Discipline Their Children, Don’t They?  By Dr. Mark W. Baker
 
“Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.” 2 Corinthians 7:10 (NIV)

“Because I said so!”
I hated hearing those words from my father when I was a kid, yet here I was listening to the very same words coming out of my own mouth as a parent now! I don’t think I was yelling, but my son said I was. OK, I was upset, but I was trying hard not to be. Parenting is hard, and despite all my professional training, I still mess up sometimes.

The Bible tells us, “No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it” (Hebrews 12:11, NIV).
I
don’t want my kids to turn out to be self-centered and miserable. But the Bible also specifically warns, “Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger ...”(Ephesians 6:4a, NASB). Was my approach to discipline making my son unnecessarily angry? I wasn’t sure.

My guiding principle for the discipline of my kids is found in today’s key verse, 2 Corinthians 7:10, “Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.” I know Paul was talking about eternal salvation with God, but I believe he was also giving us some insight into how healthy guilt works in restoring all our relationships.

I discipline my son to get him to take responsibility for his actions and make amends. If I’m too hard on him, it might push him away from me, from Christian values and even the church. I know that godly sorrow, or healthy guilt, is short-lived and inspires people to restore relationships. Healthy guilt prompts us to make things right.

But, worldly sorrow, or neurotic guilt, just goes on and on, and it doesn’t lead to anything good. Healthy guilt is motivated by the love of God and others, but neurotic guilt is motivated by the fear of punishment.

So, trying to follow my own not-so-easy-to-follow advice, I went back to my son and said, “Listen, Jake, I’m sorry for getting so mad. I love you, and as your father I want to help you do the right things. You know what you did was against the rules, so I’m going to keep your Xbox for the next 24 hours like I said. But here’s the deal. If you go up to your room right now and clean it up, I will give you a chance to earn back your Xbox. For every hour that you don’t fight with your sister and do what I ask you to do the first time I ask you to do it, I will let you earn back two hours off of the 24 you owe me. How does that sound?”

Fortunately, he took the deal.

I didn’t want an angry son moping around the house for the next 24 hours, blaming me for his misery. I wanted a son who accepted his discipline while working to restore his relationships with everyone in our home.

The problem with neurotic guilt is that it’s mixed with shame. Getting too angry at my son can make him feel I’m mad at him for not measuring up, instead of mad at the misbehavior. Guilt is about what we do, but shame is about who we are. I wanted Jake to feel badly about what he did, not mad at himself for doing it.

The Bible reminds us all children are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14) in the image of God. Shame is believing the lie that this is not true. I wanted Jake to know that he’s a good kid who did a bad thing. That’s why I felt guilty about getting so mad at him, repented for it and then worked to restore my relationship with him.

So how did the next 8 hours go? It was a relatively peaceful day around our house, with one pretty good boy trying to get along with others. And that was a day that left us all with no regrets.

Lord, thank You for the gift of my children. Help me to discipline them in a way that builds character, teaches them godliness and leaves no regrets. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

TRUTH FOR TODAY:
Ephesians 6:4, “Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” (NASB)
