當生命遭遇亂流時 (卓爾君牧師)

在飛機上若遇到亂流,乘客通常會緊張,但有經驗的飛行員都知道亂流只是影響舒適,並不會影響安全。當生命遭遇亂流時,你或許會緊張驚慌,但在你生命的駕駛艙中,如果飛行員是耶穌的話,你便可以放心,因為你的生命是在那個掌權的神手中。
如果你信靠耶穌,當你到了人生的終點線,不管路線是直的或是彎曲的,世上的苦楚與亂流都將微不足道。如約翰福音14章中說的,「你們心裡不要憂愁,你們信神,也當信我。」耶穌不斷地告訴門徒要「相信」祂,我們聽到耶穌面對門徒的困惑和恐懼所說的話。這是祂對門徒所說的,也是對你和我在這個動蕩的時間所說的話。祂告訴門徒有三個預備可以幫助我們渡過生命的亂流:
1. 盼望聖子的再來
2. 祈禱聖父的應許
3. 依靠聖靈的幫助

雖然疫情的關係,我們現在的生活面對著許多亂流與苦難,但是只要我們信靠神、仰望神,神就必將賜下平安與智慧,幫助我們渡過生命的亂流。



約翰福音 14:1-18 (和合本)

  1. 你們心裡不要憂愁,你們信 神,也當信我。
  2. 在我父的家裡有許多住處;若是沒有,我就早已告訴你們了;我去原是為你們預備地方去。
  3. 我若去為你們預備了地方,就必再來接你們到我那裡去;我在哪裡,叫你們也在那裡。
  4. 我往哪裡去,你們知道;那條路,你們也知道(註:有古卷作“我往哪裡去,你們知道那條路”)。”
  5. 多馬對他說:“主啊,我們不知道你往哪裡去,怎麼知道那條路呢? ”
  6. 耶穌說:“我就是道路、真理、生命;若不藉著我,沒有人能到父那裡去。
  7. 你們若認識我,也就認識我的父。從今以後,你們認識他,並且已經看見他。”
  8. 腓力對他說:“求主將父顯給我們看,我們就知足了。”
  9. 耶穌對他說:“腓力,我與你們同在這樣長久,你還不認識我嗎?人看見了我,就是看見了父,你怎麼說‘將父顯給我們看’呢?
  10. 我在父裡面,父在我裡面,你不信嗎?我對你們所說的話,不是憑著自己說的,乃是住在我裡面的父做他自己的事。
  11. 你們當信我,我在父裡面,父在我裡面;即或不信,也當因我所做的事信我。
  12. 我實實在在地告訴你們:我所做的事,信我的人也要做;並且要做比這更大的事,因為我往父那裡去。
  13. 你們奉我的名無論求甚麼,我必成就,叫父因兒子得榮耀。
  14. 你們若奉我的名求甚麼,我必成就。
  15. 你們若愛我,就必遵守我的命令。
  16. 我要求父,父就另外賜給你們一位保惠師(註:或作“訓慰師”。下同),叫他永遠與你們同在,
  17. 就是真理的聖靈,乃世人不能接受的,因為不見他,也不認識他;你們卻認識他,因他常與你們同在,也要在你們裡面。
  18. 我不撇下你們為孤兒,我必到你們這裡來。
John 14:1-18 (NIV)

  1. “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me.
  2. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?
  3. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
  4. You know the way to the place where I am going.”
    Jesus the Way to the Father
  5. Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
  6. Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
  7. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”
  8. Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”
  9. Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
  10. Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.
  11. Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves.
  12. Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
  13. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
  14. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
  15. “If you love me, keep my commands.
  16. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—
  17. the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.
  18. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
