劉國偉先生 – 校牧聖經默想 – 將憂慮卸給神
Mr. Simon Lau – Bible Meditation from the Chaplaincy –
Cast all your anxiety on him

將憂慮卸給神
你們要將一切的憂慮卸給神,因為祂顧念你們。(彼得前書5:7)
有一位全能者時刻顧念我們,我們需要學習的,就是把憂慮卸給祂。事實上,在我們還未學曉放手,把一切交給祂的時候,祂早已顧念我們。

Cast all your anxiety on him
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Peter 5:7 New International Version (NIV)
The Almighty who is always thinking about us, and what we need to learn is to let our worry go to Him. In fact, He had long thought about us before we learned to let go of everything to Him.

劉國偉先生 – 校牧聖經默想 – 祢深知我
Mr. Simon Lau – Bible Meditation from the Chaplaincy –
You discern me

祢深知我
我坐下,我起來,祢都曉得;祢從遠處知道我的意念。我行路,我躺臥,祢都細察;祢也深知我一切所行的。(詩篇139:2-3)
默想:我們起居作息,心中意念,神都曉得而且細心並親密地察看。那就是說,無論我們行善行惡、順境逆境,神都以祂的眼目注視我們。

You discern me
You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.  You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Psalm 139:2-3 New International Version (NIV)
When we live and work or take rest, and the thoughts in our hearts, God knows and looks dearly. So, whether we do good or evil, good times or adversity, God looks at us with His eyes.

劉國偉先生 – 校牧聖經默想 – 祢認識我
Mr. Simon Lau – Bible Meditation from the Chaplaincy –
You know me

祢認識我
耶和華啊,祢已經鑒察我,認識我。(詩篇139:1)
默想:在我們仍未認識神的時候,神已經認識我們。不是一般的認識而已,祂確實細緻地鑒察我們,以慈愛懷抱我們。

You know me
You have searched me, Lord, and you know me.
Psalm 139:1 New International Version (NIV)
Before we knew God, God already knew us. It is not just knowing us in general, He does look at us carefully and holds us in His arms with love

劉國偉先生 – 校牧聖經默想 – 求祢保護我
Mr. Simon Lau – Bible Meditation from the Chaplaincy –
Keep me as the apple of your eye

求祢保護我
求祢保護我,如同保護眼中的瞳人;將我隱藏在祢翅膀的蔭下。(詩篇17:8)
祈求神的保護,是因為我們碓信祂以慈愛待我們,把我們視為眼中瞳人;也確信神有大能,祂的翅膀能給我們完全的護蔭。

Keep me as the apple of your eye
Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.
Psalm 17:8 New International Version (NIV)

Pray for God’s protection because we believe that He treats us with kindness as apple in His eyes. We also believe that with His power God will shelter us with His wings which give us complete shade.

劉國偉先生 – 校牧聖經默想 – 生命是甚麼呢?
Mr. Simon Lau – Bible Meditation from the Chaplaincy –
What is your life?

生命是甚麼呢?
其實明天如何,你們還不知道。你們的生命是甚麼呢?你們原來是一片雲霧,出現少時就不見了。(雅各書4:14)
生命充滿不可知的因素,以為可以真箇掌控自己生命的人,其實尚未認識人活著是全賴生命之主的恩典。

What is your life?
Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
James 4:14 New International Version (NIV)
Life is full of unknowable factors, and those who think they can truly control their own lives have not yet realized that living is wholly rely on the grace of the Lord of life.

劉國偉先生 – 校牧聖經默想 – 我若不信
Mr. Simon Lau – Bible Meditation from the Chaplaincy –
I remain confident

我若不信在活人之地得見耶和華的恩惠,就早已喪膽了。(詩篇27:13)
確信神臨在人間,以恩典托著萬有,以恩惠愛惜我們,是叫我們不至喪膽,內心一天新似一天的原因。

I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Psalm 27:13 New International Version (NIV)
We firmly believe that God is among us with everything which is supported by His grace; His loving care is the reason that we are not to be discouraged and we are renewed day by day.

2020年1月30日 – 校牧的話:向下螺旋

2020年1月30日,庚子正月初六。為了應對病毒擴散的風險,這是大學實施特別上班安排的第二天,大部份的教職員按指引留家工作。

我家住崇基校園,往返辦公室十分方便。今天特別為了安排主日崇拜的細節流程,在辦公室處理了一些事務,也走進大禮堂打點一下,並且在聖壇禱告。

禱告默想的時候,從去年6月至今的畫面,在腦海流影。過去八個月,香港在一個異常困難,又十分複雜的情緒中渡過。以聖誕老人和聖誕禮物為焦點的聖誕氣氛來了,不大可以舒緩人心的怨氣和撕裂;農曆新年本來多少有點「沖喜」之傳統功能,卻因為來勢洶洶的疫情,連同香港,很多個城市、鄉鎮陷入焦慮之中。

香港,八個月前開始的集體焦慮不單沒有真正舒緩過,如今有若進入另一次向下螺旋的更深層的焦慮中。
