標  題: 堅定你的決心

經  節: 耶穌被接上升的日子將到,祂就定意向耶路撒冷去。(路加福音九章51節)

基督徒很容易在生活中分心!當你瞭解神要你去做某件事時,你身邊的人事物似乎很需要你的注意力!當耶穌走向十字架的那一刻,祂定意「面向」耶路撒冷而去,沒有任何事情可以阻攔祂完成天父的旨意。祂的決心是那麼明顯,祂選擇經過撒馬利亞人的村莊,直接前往耶路撒冷。而撒馬利亞人向來仇視猶太人,他們不願接待耶穌,因為他們認出祂是猶太人,並且面向他們所仇恨的耶路撒冷而去。

耶穌定意不讓自己的任務節外生枝,但是,祂還是在旅途中盡可能地輔導許多人。祂差遣七十個人去鄰近城市,傳天國來臨的消息(路加福音十:1)。祂醫治痳瘋病人(路加福音十七:1119)。祂醫治一個患水腫的男人(路加福音十四:14)。祂把救恩帶到撒該的家(路加福音十九:110)。祂繼續教導祂的門徒(路加福音十五:132)。當祂前去加略山時,耶穌並沒有拒絕輔導其他人,然而,祂自始至終拒絕讓任何人事物,妨礙祂遵行天父的旨意。

如果你知道神要你做甚麼,你的眼目要朝目標正看,要定意完成它(箴言四:25)。你決心做神領你做的每一件事,會成為你周遭人的見證。要小心,不要被周圍的機會分散心思,以至於失去了神給你的最終目標。不要因試探而延遲你的順服,或根本拋棄神給你的目標。一旦你由神那兒領受到清楚的指示,你應該是堅定且義無反顧地順服。


Steadfast in Your Resolve

Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem. (Luke 9:51)

It is easy to become distracted in the Christian life! The moment you understand what God wants you to do, it will seem as though everyone around you requires your time and attention! When the time came for Jesus to go to the cross, He “set His face” toward Jerusalem, so that nothing would prevent Him from accomplishing His Father’s will. So obvious was His resolve to go to Jerusalem that the Samaritans, who hated the Jews, rejected Him because they recognized that He was a Jew traveling through their village to the hated city of Jerusalem.

Jesus determined not to digress from His mission, but He took time to minister to many people along His way. He sent out seventy disciples into the surrounding towns (Luke 10:1). He healed lepers (Luke 17:11–19). He cured a man of dropsy (Luke 14:1–4). He brought salvation to the home of Zaccheus (Luke 19:1–10). He continued to teach His disciples (Luke 15:1–32). Jesus did not refuse to minister to others as He went to Calvary, but ultimately He refused to be deterred from His Father’s will.

If you know what God wants you to do, set your sights resolutely toward that goal with full determination to accomplish it (Prov. 4:25). Your resolve to go where God is leading ought to be evident to those around you. Beware of becoming so sidetracked by the opportunities around you that you lose sight of God’s ultimate goal for you. Do not succumb to the temptation to delay your obedience or to discard it altogether. Once you have received a clear assignment from God, your response should be unwavering obedience.
