重担和罪 [Weight and Sin]

书卷:希伯来书(新约)
作者:匿名

希伯来书12章1节:“我们既有这许多的见证人,如同云彩围着我们,就当放下各样的重担,脱去容易缠累我们的罪,存心忍耐,奔那摆在我们前头的路程。”

今日默想:我们信徒的一生乃是一个赛程,四周有许多好榜样的人与事,正在鼓励着我们向前奔跑。重担和罪是妨碍我们向前奔跑的两大因素,若不加以对付,必定无法奔跑得好。重担不一定是罪,甚至不是罪,但若不卸下重担,肯定不能跑得快,所以我们必须查问,哪些是我们身上的重担。重担往往是那些在我们心头上的负担,譬如难过、忧愁、郁闷、受压、灰心等,也可能是那些吸引我们的心、叫我们分心的,譬如逸乐、贪婪、名利、地位等,这些都是会阻碍奔跑的重担。罪不但会拦阻我们向前奔跑,甚至使我们失去奔跑的资格。罪就是犯规,而犯规的人是会被取消参赛资格的。我们纵然起头跑得好,中途也不错,但未到终点,仍得不着奖赏。在我们还没跑完全程,尚未见主面之前,我们仍得存心忍耐,跑完全程。基督徒应跑的天路永远是摆在前头的,世界的路永远是跟在我们后面的路,无论我们在这路上走了多远,世界的路总是只离我们一步──就在后面,什么时候我们转身向后,什么时候我们就离开了正路。

Book: Hebrews (New Testament)

Hebrews 12:1 :“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,”

Today’s Meditation: Our life is a race with many good examples of people and things around us encouraging us to run forth. Weight and sin obstructs our run. We cannot run well if we did not deal with these two obstructions first. Weight may not be a sin, but we cannot run well without laying aside weight. Thus, we need to know what is the weight on us. Weight is usually the burdens we have on our mind, such as grieve, depression, pressure, discouragement, and more. It can also be distractions such as pleasure, greed, fame, status, and more. These are the weight that ensnare us. Sin not only obstructs our way but also disqualify us from the race. Sin is foul, and those who foul will be disqualified from the race. We may run well at the start, and even the middle of the race, but we cannot get the reward without reaching the end. We need to run with endurance till the end of the race before meeting the Lord. Our runway to heaven is always set before us while the world is behind us. Regardless how far we ran, the world is always just a step behind us. Any time we turn backward, and we are away from the right way.
