活出美好 Chapter 24 Trusting God When Life Doesn't Make Sense

Psa 24:1  (大衛的詩。)地和其中所充滿的,世界和住在其間的,都屬耶和華。
Psa 24:2  他把地建立在海上,安定在大水之上。
Psa 24:3  誰能登耶和華的山?誰能站在他的聖所?
Psa 24:4  就是手潔心清、不向虛妄、起誓不懷詭詐的人。
Psa 24:5  他必蒙耶和華賜福,又蒙救他的神使他成義。
Psa 24:6  這是尋求耶和華的族類,是尋求你面的雅各。(細拉)
Psa 24:7  眾城門哪,你們要抬起頭來!永久的門戶,你們要被舉起!那榮耀的王將要進來!
Psa 24:8  榮耀的王是誰呢?就是有力有能的耶和華,在戰場上有能的耶和華!
Psa 24:9  眾城門哪,你們要抬起頭來!永久的門戶,你們要把頭抬起!那榮耀的王將要進來!
Psa 24:10  榮耀的王是誰呢?萬軍之耶和華,他是榮耀的王!(細拉)

Psalm 24

Of David. A psalm.
 1 The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it,
       the world, and all who live in it;

 2 for he founded it upon the seas
       and established it upon the waters.

 3 Who may ascend the hill of the LORD ?
       Who may stand in his holy place?

 4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
       who does not lift up his soul to an idol
       or swear by what is false. [a]

 5 He will receive blessing from the LORD
       and vindication from God his Savior.

 6 Such is the generation of those who seek him,
       who seek your face, O God of Jacob. [b]
       Selah

 7 Lift up your heads, O you gates;
       be lifted up, you ancient doors,
       that the King of glory may come in.

 8 Who is this King of glory?
       The LORD strong and mighty,
       the LORD mighty in battle.

 9 Lift up your heads, O you gates;
       lift them up, you ancient doors,
       that the King of glory may come in.

 10 Who is he, this King of glory?
       The LORD Almighty—
       he is the King of glory.
       Selah

本 詩以預言方式,將主耶穌在戰勝罪惡與死亡後,升上高天時的榮耀景象,以及祂以萬王之王的身份,降臨在地上治理萬國的歡樂情形,描繪在我們眼前。音樂家韓德 爾(George Frideric Handel)在他不朽名作「彌賽亞」中,即根據本詩將主榮升天府的熱烈情景,生動地藉著音樂表達出來。



當主耶穌在世上歷盡了諸般的苦難,戰勝了罪惡、魔鬼和死亡,從死復活,升天榮歸時,天上的眾天使豈能不在天堂門口列隊歡迎、歡呼雷動嗎?但主耶穌 不僅升天,安坐寶座,祂也願藉著聖靈進入聖徒內心。祂說:「看哪,我站在門外叩門,若有聽見我聲音就開門的,我要進到他那去,我與他、他與我一同坐席。」 (啟三20)「眾城門」、「永久的門戶」不只是天上的耶路撒冷,在此亦可象徵眾聖徒的心,這樣一位榮耀的主,不但在永世中作王,現在祂也願意屈就在信徒的 心中作王,這是何等榮耀的福音。



我們的神是全地的創造主(1〜2節),也是聖潔的主(4節),是「有力有能的」,「在戰場上有能的」(8節),神握有天上地下的權柄,並已將這權 柄賜給主耶穌,能以勝過魔權,並有權柄做任何事,但是祂不勉強進入人的心中,因為人心內有一操權的王,那就是「自我」。當「自我」當權,主耶穌就不進來。 祂期待人們主動歡迎祂,今天向祂「抬起頭來」,歡迎祂,讓榮耀的王進來,在心中作王掌權,祂要賜給我們一個榮耀的日子!

我渴望榮耀的王進到我心面嗎?我的心是否向祂完全敞開嗎?

榮耀的主,歡迎你進來,請你榮登我心中的寶座,作王掌權。
