每日金句

……“若有人要跟从我,就当舍己,背起他的十字架,来跟从我。”

—可 8:34

…"If anyone would come after me,he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me."

— Mark 8:34

在2018年,泰国有一群男孩子,被困在山洞里数星期后,终于戏剧性地获救。可惜,在拯救行动中,有一个勇敢的救援人员不幸殉职。身为一个受过训练的美国海军海豹突击队队员,这个失去生命的人深知本次拯救行动是危险的——但不管怎样,他仍然与其他救援人员一起参与了行动。

耶稣开始教导门徒祂将要经历的事——祂必须受苦、被杀、又跟着复活了——彼得发现这个使命比他所预期的艰苦得多。

耶稣接着又教导他们,跟从祂意味着什么。跟从祂不是关乎接受一套神学理论,签署一份会员合约,或按照一套道德标准生活——虽然这些也是好事。跟从祂是关于分享“耶稣是主和祂是唯一得救之路”的好消息,跟从祂意味着知道这条路可能会遇见危险 ——但不管怎样,仍然选择这样做。

潘霍华在作《门徒的代价》这本书中这样说:门徒只把注意力集中在耶稣身上,而不是关注“那条我们看来太艰苦的路……因为祂在前引路;只要紧紧跟着祂。”

论到犹太人跟从拉比(老师)和任何拉比所到之处的传统,有人这样说:“惟愿祂步履掀起的尘埃覆庇你。”这就是在灵里紧紧跟随老师带来的果效!

作为门徒,我们蒙召走上这条充满挑战的门徒之路,然而耶稣必定会常常与我们同在的。

In 2018 a team of boys in Thailand were dramatically res­cued after being trapped for weeks in a cave. But one brave rescuer died in the process. As a trained Navy Seal, the man who died was well aware that the rescue mission was dangerous—and he did it anyway, along with the other rescuers.

Jesus begins to teach his disciples what lies ahead—that he must suffer and be killed and then rise again—and Peter finds this mission to be harder than expected.

Jesus also begins to teach what it means to follow him. It is not about adopting a set of theological statements, signing a membership contract, or living by a moral code—although those can be good things. It is about sharing the good news that Jesus is Lord and is the only way to salvation. It's about knowing that this path can be dangerous—and doing it anyway.

In The Cost of Discipleship, Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote that a disciple focuses only on Jesus and not "the road which is too hard for us…He leads the way; keep close to him."

In the Jewish tradition of following a rabbi (teacher) and going everywhere he went, the saying was "May you be covered in his dust." That's the ­effect of spiritual tailgating!

As disciples, we are called to walk the challenging path of discipleship. And Jesus will always be right there with us.

祷告 · Prayer

主耶稣,感谢祢为我们所作的一切。我们知道祢时常与我们同在,求祢加力给我们来忠心跟从祢。阿们。
