compassion

Colossians 3:12-14

Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

When We’re a Friend of Job

When we’re trying to comfort or advise someone who is suffering, we want to be truthful but also careful and loving, so how do we balance both?

There’s a good man. He fell in love and married young; he and his wife went through some rough times, but they overcome together. They have years of faithful, worthy marriage under their belts.

The Maintenance of a Foundation

Times of trial always reveal what we truly believe about ourselves, the world and our God, so what will the fires show about who and what we trust?

Sam Keyes, bio-engineering academic and public speaker about the integration of science and faith, noted a particularly notable instance of the church leading the response to a health crisis.  

关心邻居的需要

David Wilkerson (1931-2011)22-01-20

主在世时,具体彰显了神的慈心。圣经常常说主「怜悯」受苦的人(参看太14:14).

多半的信徒都认为自己慈悲. 但是,甚至最罪大恶极的人听到有关儿童受苦,都会受「感动」. 慈心不是怜恤或同情而已. 真正的慈心会催促我们去有所行动.

我们读到主: 「看见一大群人,就怜悯他们;因为他们困苦无助,如同羊没有牧人一样。」(太9:36). 这里的「怜悯」是指「受感动去有所行动」。主有何行动呢? 衪没有空谈而已。祂因所看见的而受感动,且渴望改变事情.

「「耶稣走遍各城各乡,在他们的会堂裏教导人,宣讲天国的福音,又医治各样的病症。(9:35). 这并非一些虚空的神学道理. 主没有私下对父神说:「父啊, 求你差遣工人去收割. 」衪亲自去了! 衪按手在患大痲疯的人身上,且既实际,又亲切的深深参与。 

我们读到:「凡有世上财物的,看见弟兄缺乏,却关闭了恻隐的心,神的爱怎能住在他裏面呢?」 (约一3:17). 你看见周遭人的需要,就该存著慈心呼求说:「神啊, 你要我做甚麽呢? 」我们都该在自己的邻舍当中去寻找自己可协助满足的需要.

神要你有份於表达衪对世人的慈心. 若你确实愿意这样做, 衪就必把需要带到你的门口。所以,你要求主使用你,且看看衪会给你不少机会.

關心鄰居的需要

神要你有份於表達衪對世人的慈心. 若你確實願意這樣做, 衪就必把需要帶到你的門口。所以,你要求主使用你,且看看衪會給你不少機會.

KUTUNZA WENYE MAHITAJI MAJILANI

David Wilkerson (1931-2011)22-01-20

Wakati wa maisha yake hapa duniani, Yesu alikuwa mfano wa huruma ya Mungu. Maandiko mara nyingi husema kwamba Kristo "aliwaoneya huruma" kwa ajili ya mateso ya watu (ona Mathayo 14:14).

Wakristo wengi wanapenda kudhani kuwa wana huruma. Lakini hata wenye dhambi mbaya zaidi "kuaoneya" wanaposikia mateso ya watoto. Huruma sio huruma tu au ushabiki. Huruma ya kweli inatulazimisha kutenda.
