每日诗歌:诗篇三十二篇 Psalms 32 (  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9gDqg-bWJo)

每日读经:民数记15-16 ( https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=numbers+15&version=CUVS  )






当我读到15-16章,我的第一印象就是罪在神的眼中是多么严重的事。 说实话, 我对我的罪常常是麻木的。 我从早到晚都犯罪, 想都不想我在犯罪。 犯了罪都没有感觉。 可是神看罪是完全不一样。 对神而言, 罪是一个严重的问题。 罪是会让人污秽, 甚至该判死刑。 在这两章,我们看到有人星期天捡木材, 还有另外一些人像可拉, 大坍和亚比兰从人的角度,可能会想他们的惩罚是太严厉。 捡木头有什么错?或是怪摩西和亚伦说 “你 们 为 甚 麽 自 高 , 超 过 耶 和 华 的 会 众 呢?“ 有什么错呢?很明显的,很多以色列的领袖同意他们的说法。不会全部领袖都错了吧?可是在做决定时, 他们失去了对神的专注。反而他们的注意力转到他们自己想要的,还有他们自己的感觉。这样的结果就是犯罪,抵挡神。他们所付的代价是何等的大。这些人犯罪赔上自己的生命。

当我读到这些人的时候,我要停下来, 问自己 “我对罪的态度是什么?” 我去回想每一次我所犯的罪, 不论是有意的,或是无意的。 我会不会想”我的罪不算什么“?我会不会就不管,想着”反正神会原谅我“? 读了这两章会提醒我,我的罪也是让另外一位付上生命做代价, 却不是我自己的。这全然是神的恩典。 但愿圣灵继续提醒我只从神的眼光来看自己的罪。


亲爱的天父,原谅我对我的罪懒惰的态度。开我的眼看见藏在我心里的罪。帮助我专注与你。 奉主名求,阿们!

Daily Hymn: Psalms 32 (  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9gDqg-bWJo)

Daily Scripture:Numbers 15-16 ( https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=numbers+15&version=CUVS  )

Daily Verses:

Numbers 15:30-31 ‘But anyone who sins defiantly, whether native-born or foreigner, blasphemes the Lord and must be cut off from the people of Israel. 31 Because they have despised the Lord’s word and broken his commands, they must surely be cut off; their guilt remains on them.’

Daily Question:

What is my attitude towards sin?

Daily Devotion:

The first impression I get when reading through chapters 15-16 is the sense of how serious sinning is in God’s eyes. To be honest, I am often numb to my sin. I sin all day, without even thinking about it, without feeling guilty. But God does not look at sin that way at all. To God, sin is a serious problem, something that defiles man and deserves the death penalty. When we look at the man gathering wood on Sunday, or Korah, Dathan and Abiram, from a human perspective we might think that their punishment is too harsh. What’s wrong with gathering some wood? What’s so bad about accusing Moses and Aaron of setting themselves above the Lord’s assembly? Obviously many of the Israelite leaders agreed with the accusation. All those leaders can’t be wrong… But in making these decisions, these men lost their focus on God. Instead they focused on their own wants, their own feelings and in doing so, sinned against God. How great a price they paid for it. These men “sinned at the cost of their life”. When I read accounts like these, I must stop and ask myself “What is my own attitude towards sin?” I think of all the times that I sin, both purposefully or unpurposefully. Do I think that my sin is not a big deal? Do I pass over it, thinking that God will forgive me anyways? Reading this reminds me that my sin cost someone’s life as well. Only through God’s grace was it His and not mine. May the Holy Spirit continue to convict me and help me see my sin through His eyes and not my own.


Dear Heavenly Father, forgive me of my lazy attitude towards sin. Open my eyes to the sin that is hidden in my heart. Help me to focus on you. Amen!
