 (Listen to the sermon, 聽講道)

35耶穌走遍各城各鄉,在各會堂裡教導人,宣揚天國的福音,醫治各種疾病、各種病症。36他看見群眾,就憐憫他們,因為他們困苦無依,像沒有牧人的羊一樣。37他就對門徒說:“莊稼多,工人少;38所以你們應當求莊稼的主派工人去收割他的莊稼。”

35 And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. 36When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; 38therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

(馬太福音Matthew 9:35-38)

The Lord’s harvest is here. It is happening now. 主的收成就在這裡。 它正在發生。

First, we see people through Jesus’ heart, a heart full of compassion. Compassion is splancthna. 首先,我們透過耶穌的心來看人,用一個充滿熱情的心。熱情是splancthna(腸子)。

    1. What the Bible is saying is that Jesus’ love and concern for the people is a love that shakes one’s whole being.
      聖經裡所說的耶穌對人的愛與關心是指振動全人的愛
    1. Jesus’ love for the people is a love that is more than emotion. It is a love that results into action.
      耶穌對人的愛不只是情感上的。那份愛轉化為行動。

Second, we also see people through Jesus’ eyes. People are helpless. 第二,我們也透過耶穌的眼睛來看人。人是無助的。

    1. We are under-shepherds working for Jesus, telling everyone that they can find help and salvation in God through Jesus Christ.
      我們的工作是為耶穌牧養羊群,告訴每一個人讓他們可以透過耶穌基督在上帝裡得著幫助與救贖。

Third, we see people using Jesus’ hands. With his hands, Jesus is ready for the harvest. 第三,我們使用耶穌的雙手來看人。透過祂的雙手,耶穌準備好要收割莊稼。

We anticipate the harvest because God is the Lord of the harvest. He will bring in the harvest. The question is: “Are you ready to receive the harvest?” 我們期待收成因為上帝是收成的主。祂將帶來收成。問題是:「你預備好領受收成嗎?」

    1. “How can I love this person with the compassion of Jesus?”
      「我該如何用耶穌的熱情來愛這個人?」
    2. “How does Jesus see them? How does the Great Shepherd help them to come closer to his presence?”
      「耶穌如何看他們呢?」那位委大的牧人如何幫助他們來親近祂呢?
    1. “What am I doing to prepare for the Lord’s harvest?”
      「我正在為耶穌的收成做哪些準備呢?」

God’s harvest in Taiwan is coming. It is here. Are you ready? 上帝在台灣的收成已經來臨了。收成就在這裡。你準備好了嗎?
