世語超言

興起下一代

上星期日,我聽見了三個年青人分享他們到紐約短宣的經驗,再次肯定了他們事奉上帝的能力。我們的年青人,絕對可以成為今日的但以理、沙得拉、米煞和亞伯尼歌,在這個外邦人之地為主發光。

我多麼希望看到有更多年青人能站出來為主做見證,我更希望看見有更多年青人可以與其他成年人一起侍奉上帝,發揮上帝賜給他們的恩賜才能,建立教會、造福社群。我們不單要給他們機會,更要鼓勵他們學習如何愛人愛上帝,讓他們親身經歷上帝的真實。

以色列啊,你要聽!耶和華我們的上帝是獨一的主。你要盡心、盡性、盡力愛耶和華你的上帝。我今日所吩咐你的話都要記在心上,也要殷勤教訓你的兒女。無論你坐在家裡,行在路上,躺下,起來,都要談論。(申命記 6:4-7 )

我鼓勵我們當中的家長,也鼓勵我們年長和做年青人導師的弟兄姊妹,在教會、特別是在家裡多點和年青人和孩子分享和談論人生信仰,以及如何按照上帝的教導待人接物,像當日的以色列人一樣。因為這是天父上帝交給我們成年人和作父母親的責任,不該假手於人。這樣,我們就能一起成長,完成上帝交付給我們在世上的任務,經歷上帝的恩典和能力。

Last Sunday, I listened to three different young people to share their short-term mission experience in New York and was convinced that they indeed have the ability to serve God like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah and reflect the light of the Lord in a foreign land.

It has been my prayer that many more young people can step up to give witness about Christ and serve God along with other adults. I would like to see many more young people could use their gifts and talents to help build up our church and serve people in our community. We need to give them opportunities. We also need to teach them to love God and love people and to experience God themselves.

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. (Deuteronomy 6:4-7) ESV

May I encourage our parents, elderlies, and mentors of our young people to share and discuss issues of life and faith at church and in particular at home with children and young people as well. Teach them how to live with people and do things God’s way like what the Israelites do in those days. This is the parents’ obligation from God and we should not rely on others to do it. By doing this, we can grow together and accomplish what God has commissioned us to do on earth seeing God grace and power with our own eyes.
