3/30 我們有神的DNA

  • 神乃是照著祂的形象造人,但人墮落而失去神的形象;現在神使人在基督耶穌裏,得以恢復屬神的生命與性情。
  • 遺傳密碼是寫在每個細胞裡的,所以我們成為神的兒女,也是在細緻地信靠順服中,全方位的更像神。
  • 人類有神的DNA,因此有了期待完全的渴望。
  • 我們像是一塊璞玉,外表和一般石頭無異,但裡面有潛在的上帝形象。
  • 我們有神的DNA,所以會想追尋生命的意義;因為我們渴求永恆,是遺傳自神。
  • 人自稱是萬物之靈,我們有自覺,覺得我們跟其他生命不一樣,高於他們;這樣的自覺是源於我們被造與萬物不同,惟有人是按神的形象造的,有神的DNA。
  • 我們有神的DNA,所以有創新 創造的能力。
  • 你看神造的生物有些叫人發噱,神怎麼想得出來那個樣子?我們有幽默感,是遺傳自神的DNA。
  • 我們有神的DNA,所以雖未完全卻渴慕完全,有瑕疵卻不掩其光芒。

10/28 屬天安寧&聖本篤的祈禱

《屬天安寧》
美國神學家尼布爾有名的禱告:
神啊!請賜給我恩典,
讓我能以平靜沉穩的心來接受我不能改變的事,
賜我勇氣來改變我能改變的事,
並賜我智慧來分辨這二者。
每次只管一天地過生活,儘情享受當下這一刻。
視苦難為通往平安之必經途徑。
效法耶穌不照自己的意願,乃看清這罪惡世界的真相。
信靠你會將萬事安排妥當,只要我降服於你的旨意;
好使我能適度快樂地度過今生,而在來世與你同享無上福樂。
阿們。

《聖本篤的祈禱》
哦,慈悲的聖父,求賜給我們:
智慧來認識你,殷勤來尋求你,
能看見你的眼睛,能默想你的心,
以及宣揚你的生活。
藉聖靈的大能和我們的主耶穌基督。
阿們。
(阿們意思是:真誠的)
