每日灵修  3/22/2019    从怀疑到跟随

23 耶稣对他们说:“你们肯定会把这句俗话用在我身上,说,‘医生啊,治好你自己吧!你在迦百农所行的一切,我们都听说了,也在你家乡行给我们看吧!’ 24 可是我实在告诉你们,先知在自己的家乡都是不受欢迎的。 25 事实上,在以利亚先知的时代,天干旱无雨达三年半之久,遍地有大饥荒。那时,以色列国有许多寡妇, 26 但以利亚并没有奉命去帮助她们任何人,只奉命去帮助住在西顿地区撒勒法的一个寡妇。 27 在以利沙先知的时代,以色列国有许多患麻风病的人,但没有一个人得到医治,反而叙利亚的乃缦得到了医治。”  28 会堂里的人听了这些话都怒火中烧, 29 就起来把耶稣赶出城外,带到悬崖边,要把祂推下去。他们的城就坐落在山上。 30 耶稣却从他们中间穿过,离开了那里。 路加福音 4:23-30

23 He said to them, “Doubtless you will quote to me this proverb, ‘Doctor, cure yourself!’ And you will say, ‘Do here also in your hometown the things that we have heard you did at Capernaum.’” 24 And he said, “Truly I tell you, no prophet is accepted in the prophet’s hometown. 25 But the truth is, there were many widows in Israel in the time of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, and there was a severe famine over all the land; 26 yet Elijah was sent to none of them except to a widow at Zarephath in Sidon. 27 There were also many lepers[d] in Israel in the time of the prophet Elisha, and none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian.” 28 When they heard this, all in the synagogue were filled with rage. 29 They got up, drove him out of the town, and led him to the brow of the hill on which their town was built, so that they might hurl him off the cliff. 30 But he passed through the midst of them and went on his way. Luke 4:23-30

注释: 以利亚帮助撒勒法的穷寡妇的故事出自 《列王纪上》17:7-24,

以利沙医治叙利亚的乃缦的故事出自 《列王记下》5:1-19

以色列人没有得到以利亚和以利沙的帮助, 乃是因为他们背弃了上帝。

耶稣在自己的家乡没有能行很多神迹, 乃是因为他们不信 (马可福音 6:5-6)

默想: 在耶稣和祂的家乡里的人的对抗的过程里,

祂的家乡里的人有哪些理由来怀疑,反对, 乃至要害死耶稣?

如果你当时也在犹太人的会堂里, 你会怎样选择?

属灵的操练:  有人拒绝承认耶稣是弥赛亚 (基督, 救主),

有人相信祂就是弥赛亚,

也有人犹豫不决。

当你心存疑惑的时候,

请这样来祈求,

“我信!但我信心不足,求你帮助我!”

(“I believe; help my unbelief!”)

(马可福音 Mark  9:24)

祷告: 主耶稣, 天父差遣你来做我们的救主。

但是, 祢自己家乡的人反对祢。

祢自己同胞的宗教领袖敌视祢。

祢亲手拣选的门徒抛弃背叛了祢。

最后, 祢受尽羞辱和悲痛,死在十字架上。

从始至终, 祢仁慈忍耐,

广施怜悯,多行神迹善事。

祢的复活证实了祢的身份。

祢的复活点燃了改变世界的燎原之火。

求祢赐给我信心的火种,

让我 一生一世跟随祢,效法祢,

让我的生命放射出绚丽的光彩。
