610 第二步妙法

尋找就尋見。(路十一9

“你們求也得不著,因為你們妄求。”你求的若是今生的事物,而不是從神來的,就是妄求,就是出於實現自我的欲望。你愈是實現自我,就愈不會尋求神。“尋找就尋見。”去實行吧,聚精會神在尋找方面。你是全心尋求神,還是在受刺激痛楚之下,向神沒精打采地哀求?尋找,要專心,那你就尋見。

“你們一切乾渴的都當就近水來。”你是渴慕神,還是漠然不關心--只滿足於自己的經歷,以致對神再無所求?經歷是個通道,不是目的。要謹慎,不要把信心建築在經歷之上,那鏗然之聲必隨即響起,加以責難,因你無法把所找到的傳給別人,你只能叫他羡慕你所得著的。

“叩門,就給你們開門。”“要親近神。”叩門--那門是關閉的,叩的時候你會心驚膽戰。“潔淨你們的手”--稍為用力一點叩,就會發現自己的污穢。“潔淨你們的心”--這一層更加深切了;這是你很真誠逼切,什麼都肯做了。“要受苦”--你曾否因你內在的光景在神面前受苦?這時你已沒有絲毫自憐了,只有一種因詫異而來的心碎,因發覺原來自己的本相是這樣的。“自卑”--叩神的門是一件卑躬屈膝的事--你要與那被釘十架的大盜同叩門。“叩門的就給他開門。”

祈禱◆噢,主啊,但願我對你有更活潑的感應,而你的豐盛一直與我同在。


June 10 The Next Best Thing To Do

Seek, and ye shall find.” Luke 11:9

Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss.” If you ask for things from life instead of from God, you ask amiss, i.e., you ask from a desire for self-realization. The more you realize yourself the less will you seek God. “Seek, and ye shall find.” Get to work, narrow your interests to this one. Have you ever sought God with your whole heart, or have you only given a languid cry to Him after a twinge of moral neuralgia? Seek, concentrate, and you will find.

Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters.” Are you thirsty, or smugly indifferent – so satisfied with your experience that you want nothing more of God? Experience is a gateway, not an end. Beware of building your faith on experience, the metallic note will come in at once, the censorious note. You can never give another person that which you have found, but you can make him homesick for what you have.

Knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” “Draw nigh to God.” Knock – the door is closed, and you suffer from palpitation as you knock. “Cleanse your hands” – knock a bit louder, you begin to find you are dirty. “Purify your heart” – this is more personal still, you are desperately in earnest now – you will do anything. “Be afflicted” – have you ever been afflicted before God at the state of your inner life? There is no strand of self-pity left, but a heartbreaking affliction of amazement to find you are the kind of person that you are. “Humble yourself” – it is a humbling business to knock at God’s door – you have to knock with the crucified thief. “To him that knocketh, it shall be opened.”
