每日灵修 5/7/2019   抚摸伤疤

19 当天晚上,即周日晚上,门徒因为害怕犹太人,把房门都关上了。忽然,耶稣来了,站在他们当中,对他们说:“愿你们平安!” 20 说完,让他们看祂的手和肋旁。门徒看见主,十分欢喜。。。。24 耶稣显现的时候,十二个门徒中绰号“双胞胎”的多马不在场。 25 其他门徒告诉他:“我们看见主了!”可是多马说:“除非我亲眼看见祂手上的钉痕,用手摸到祂手上的钉痕和祂的肋旁,否则我决不信。” 26 过了八天,门徒又聚在一起,多马也在,门都关着。突然耶稣来了,站在他们当中说:“愿你们平安!” 27 然后对多马说:“把你的指头放在我手上摸摸看,伸出手来摸摸我的肋旁。不要怀疑,要信!” 28 多马回答说:“我的主,我的上帝!” 约翰福音 20:19-20, 24-28

19 When it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and the doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” 20 After he said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.  。。。24 But Thomas (who was called the Twin), one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands, and put my finger in the mark of the nails and my hand in his side, I will not believe.” 26 A week later his disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were shut, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it in my side. Do not doubt but believe.” 28 Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!”   John 20:19-20, 24-28

有些事情我们不会轻易跟人分享。身心灵受到的创伤就是其中一个。 即使不是我们的过错, 我们还是会尽量遮掩创伤, 不愿意让人知道。 我们这样做是为了保护自己, 恐怕有人会幸灾乐祸, 有人会嘲讽讥笑, 有人会漠不关心。 但是, 当我们这样做的时候, 我们就把自己孤立了起来。 我们会错误地以为只有自己才遭遇不幸, 而别人都比我们更幸运。 我们甚至会为自己的创伤感到羞耻; 会让自己的不幸遭遇和创伤变成一个鸿沟,把我们和其他人分隔,甚至对立起来。 结果是让自己变得更加孤独和痛苦。 创伤不仅不能得到医治, 反而会溃烂发脓。

复活的耶稣有荣耀的身体。奇怪的是, 祂仍然保留了被钉十字架的钉痕。 祂手上和肋旁的伤痕是祂遭受奇耻大辱的记号。 可是, 祂却用那些伤痕来向门徒验证自己的身份。 门徒看到了伤痕, 就认出了复活的耶稣。 十字架留下来的伤痕成了祂和门徒重新建立关系的桥梁。

耶稣邀请多马来摸祂带有伤痕的手和肋旁。

耶稣也邀请我们在想象里摸祂带有伤痕的手和肋旁。

耶稣对我们说,

“不要怕, 是我。

我死了, 我复活了。

我不以十字架的钉痕为耻。

你也不要因你的伤痕感到羞耻和害怕。

你不孤单, 我与你同在。

摸一摸我手上的钉痕, 我肋旁的伤口。

你经历过的一切苦痛和羞耻, 我都经历过,

把你的疮疤给我看看,

让我来抚摸你的疮疤。

你的伤口, 我会医治

你的心痛, 我会抚慰。”

阿门。
