神爱世人,甚至将他的独生子赐给他们,叫一切信他的,
不至灭亡,反得永生。(约3:16)

凡事定期 Seasons

读经

“凡事都有定期, 天下万务都有定时。 生有时,死有时; 栽种有时,拔出所栽种的也有时;”  传道书 3:1-2 

For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest.  E C C L E S I A S T E S 3 : 1 – 2

默想 

绿叶开始变色,夏天即将过去,不会再有炎热。但冬天又不远了,很快又会转冷。秋天,是一个夏天和冬天过渡的季节。有一种枫树可以长到18米高、13米宽。在盛夏的时候,这种树因为枝繁叶茂而提供很大的阴凉。它还不怕污染,而且能够净化空气。在各种地理环境下,它都能郁郁葱葱。但是,到了秋天,它还是要变色,完全变成橘红色,非常漂亮。

这就是大自然,凡事有定期。但是,我们人却喜欢一成不变。我们希望风平浪静,希望一切可以预知。但是,主耶稣来,改变了我们,而且让我们有机会,跟他一起改变世界。

The leaves beginning to change color, and summer is gone. The warm days are behind us. Winter is just around the bend. Colder weather is ahead. Fall is the transition.The Autumn Blaze Maple tree grows to be about fifty feet tall and forty feet wide. It is a beautiful fast-growing, leafy green tree in the summer, providing deep shade. It is strongly resistant to pollution and its robust health helps purify air all around it. It also flourishes in various environments. But in the fall its leaves turn a vibrant orange-red that transforms the landscape.

Many of us try to live our lives without seasons. We’d like to have predictability and safety all year long. But change in us, especially when generated by Jesus, produces brilliant opportunities to change the world in which we live.

祷告

祷告:主耶稣,求你改变我,让我成为他人的祝福。阿们。

Lord Jesus, change me through the seasons of my life so that I might bless others. Amen.

行动

召集一些朋友,去玉米地或南瓜园,感受丰收的季节。求主改变你们,在你们的生命里有收成。

Gather some friends and spend a day together at a corn maze or a pumpkin farm. Enjoy this month. And let Jesus’ work in you give vibrancy to others.
