December 31 - 年底怎么过?

Postby Szerong » Wed Dec 30, 2015 11:00 pm

出廿三16
又要守收割节,所收的是你田间所种、劳碌得来初熟之物。并在年底收藏,要守收藏节。


年底怎么过?加班?旅游?购物?大扫除?结帐?奉献?行善济贫?

我们看看神怎么吩咐祂的子民:“并在年底收藏,要守收藏节。”神吩咐以色列人把平日作工的余粮收藏起来,并守收藏节(即住棚节)。所以,只要是存着敬畏神的心,储蓄并没有错。相反,要是挥霍无度,以致身无分文,并不是神的好管家。

不过,除收藏以外,神还吩咐以色列人守节七天,“第一日当有圣会,什么劳碌的工都不可做。七日内要将火祭献给耶和华……这是在耶和华的安息日以外,又在你们的供物和所许的愿,并甘心献给耶和华的以外……。”(利廿三35至40)“守节的时候,你和你儿女、仆婢,并住在你城里的利未人,以及寄居的与孤儿寡妇,都要欢乐。”(申十六14)这是分别为圣、以神为中心的日子。所以不要把余粮(余款)全收藏起来,要记念过去神曾经怎样领你一路走来,今天又怎么丰富地供应你。不要忘记过去,要有念恩、感恩和报恩的心。要奉献给神,与人同乐。


Exodus‬ ‭23:16‬ ‭
“Celebrate the Festival of Harvest with the firstfruits of the crops you sow in your field.

“Celebrate the Festival of Ingathering at the end of the year, when you gather in your crops from the field.”


How are you intending to spend your last day of the year? Overtiming at work? Travelling? Shopping? Cleaning? Footing bills? In dedication to the Lord? Doing charity?

Let's look at how God commanded His people, "Celebrate the Festival of Ingathering at the end of the year, when you gather in your crops from the field." God commanded the Israelites to gather up the crops of surplus on their usual days, and Celebrate the Festival of Ingathering. Therefore, so long as we are mindful of God, saving up is not wrong. On the contrary, if we spend extravagantly and end up penniless, we not good stewards of God.
However, in addition to gathering surplus, God also commanded the Israelites to honour the festival for seven days, "The first day is a sacred assembly; do no regular work. For seven days present food offerings to the Lord...... These offerings are in addition to those for the Lord’s Sabbaths and in addition to your gifts and whatever you have vowed and all the freewill offerings you give to the Lord......"(Leviticus 23:35-40)"Be joyful at your festival—you, your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, and the Levites, the foreigners, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns."(Deuteronomy 16:14) This is a day set apart for the Lord Himself. Therefore do not just gather up the surplus of your lot and store them away, but remember how God guided you along the way, and how He has richly supplied your needs. Do not forget the past, but maintain gratitude in heart by receiving well and giving it back. Give unto the Lord, and rejoice.

当年低到时,您又会想到谁?

感谢天父,
因为在这一年内,祢把最好的东西赐给我。
在这一年里,祢教了我不少。
当我们一共来庆祝祢今年所为我们准备的东西,
我们必须预备我们所收存的物品。
就像旅游一样,还没去之前要准备好钱、衣服等。
准备好时,就能出国享受那劳力赚来的钱。
感谢祢主所为我安排的事物。
阿门

The last day of 2015?
It is not just the celebration of the new coming year,
but it is celebration of something more.
What i've sow will be what i will be harvesting at the end of the year.
As i look back, it can be a disappointment, but it can also be a satisfaction.
Of cos life will have down times, but why not focus on the high tide of your life,
and let the down times be a lesson to learn so we can grow even stronger and more mature?
As the last day, i want to delicate my life to God, repent and pray even more so i can be closer to God.
As a conviction, i want to live out His words, and love more people around me, and impact lives in 2016.

Oh Heavenly Father,
as you see and know my conviction,
please first let me draw near to You.
Lord, only when i am near You will i speak the Word of Truth.
Oh God, please show my talents. Please show to me what You want me to be.
Lord, I surrender all.
I came into this world with nothing, but You blessed me with so much that Lord, i want to do more for You.
I am thankful, for your existence and presence in my life.
Now that i am here, Lord i Thank You because i am still standing firm in You.
Oh Father, In Jesus Name i pray,
Amen.
I shall not waver, In Christ my faith stands.

在一整年的最后一天我们要怎么过?
庆幸我们每年的最后一天我们有祷告会,
看看一整年神在我们的团契,我们的教会如何大大的厚赐给我们,
让我们能够数算神的恩典,并且存着感恩的心来感谢神这一整年的看顾,
以及感谢神如何的带领我们的增长。
即有了感恩的心,我们也要有报恩的心。
神在今天的经文告诉我们“并在年底收藏,要守收藏节”,
所以我们要奉献给神,在金钱上,在服事上,或在委身的这方面来奉献给神。

End of 2015 and going into 2016 isn't about celebrating for a new year. Instead I feel that it's a time for us to give thanks to God for a wonderful and blessing year. It's to also start a new year with getting closer to god and a also a year for us to stop all our bad habits and become a person that spreads the love and gospel of him to the lost sheep. Since it's a start of a new year I will learn and become a person who takes courage out to spread his love and gospel to the others to all the lost sheep to let them find back their way to their owner.

Dear lord, I pray that you would continue to bless everyone of us and lead me in my life during 2016 and I am thankful that in 2015 you gave me life full of ups and down making me learn more things about giving a blessing to my life. Lord I pray that you continue to give me courage to spread your love and your gospel.
In Jesus name I pray,
Amen!

Amen!! As the rest of the world spends the last day of the year partying, celebrating for the wrong reasons, we should give thanks for what God has given us the previous year and as we look and move forward to the new year, ask God for guidance and advice so that we can move onto the new year successfully and kick out all bad habits we may have the previous year and change our ways to be a better person by doing the things God desires and to become more Christlike and not do the things that God despise and not be Christlike by continuing the bad habits we have been doing the previous year.

No year is a bad year because we have God!
When bad times come, we can give thanks

Last day of the year allows us to reflect~
Reflect on the blessings and grace God has showered upon us throughout the year
Reflect on how to be a better servant of God in the new year

Thank You Lord,
for all the blessings You showered upon me in 2015
for guiding me back to the right path when I went astray
for not giving up on me even when I gave up on You
In 2016, I pray to be more Christ-like and be a better testimony than before
To focus on doing Your work, serving You, and building a better relationship with You
In Jesus name I pray, Amen!
No matter how smooth or how rough your day is, God is with you each step of the day.

The year ends as fast as it is. Just like how things happened in a blink.
But we must never forget how God grace is placed in our daily living.
Let us learn to appreciate and give thanks to what we have.
For the coming year, let us be more thankful and learn from the last and move forward.
Relying on God and reap the things we sow...and do our part in his plan.
Thank you lord and in Jesus name I pray, amen!
