I was baptized on 25th, March 1973 to a church but not Christ. I was a Christian in name, and attended service faithfully but not receiving anything from God.

As I had no thirst for the truth, I could not remember God’s Word and was not paying any attention to the lyrics of the songs while singing. But God touches me when I sang first verse of Song 120 of the Chinese Melody of Praise (Break Thou the bread of life), “Beyond the sacred page I seek thee Lord”. I dare not sing anymore.

I was a believer that attended many services but was lazy to read the Bible and pray. I was not interested to have fellowship with brothers and sisters in Christ and was not interested in church ministry. I was also a TV-addict, wasted my time (Eph 5:16) in watching TV programs. “Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him” (1 John 2:15).

Though I was lukewarm, God still loved me. I was touched by a pastor’s message in a youth service. The theme was “Attitude in serving God”. “It is not about how long you have been a Christian but what is your attitude towards God? Are you living consistently with your faith? Let’s ask the Holy Spirit to enlighten us as we search ourselves” said the pastor. The Holy Spirit continued to touch me even though I tried to ignore it on that night by watching TV. The conviction of the Holy Spirit was so strong that I cried and confessed my sins. I prayed that God would help me to love what He loves and hate what He hates. I asked God to guide my life and let me have the desire for

His Word. After my confession, my heart filled with joy. I began to read His Word by forgetting the past and pressing forward. As the children of God, let us learn from our failure. “We have nothing to boast except the cross of Jesus Christ,” said Paul. May all glory and honor be given to our God!

我在1973年3月25日受洗归入教会,那时只是归入教会,还未归入基督。当时,我只是个挂名基督徒,常常自满和自以为是,以为参加教会聚会就足够了。我似乎是忠心于主,但不能从神那里得着什么。

由于没有渴慕真理以致灵里虚空,每次聚会后我很快就把神的话语忘得一干二净,在敬拜唱诗时也不曾留意诗歌的词句。但很奇妙的,每次唱到“颂主圣歌”第120首的第1节“我愿看主圣经见主荣面时”,我就不敢再唱下去。

我是个多聚会、懒读经和少祷告的信徒,不喜欢与其他弟兄姐妹打交道,更不关心教会事工。我时常为自己安排整日甚至是整年的节目,打开报纸就是追着今日电视有什么好看的节目,偶尔与儿女们看看电影,就是这样虚度了不少光阴。圣经却教导信徒,要爱惜光阴(弗5:16),而我却辜负了主的恩和主的爱,正如经
上说:“人若爱世界,爱父的心就不在他里面了”(约壹2:15)。

虽然落在不冷不热的光景中,感谢父神仍爱我,祂让我在一次青年团契里的信息得着帮助。当晚信息的主题是“事奉神的态度”。牧师说:“无论你们信主多久,这不是问题,问题是你们对神的态度如何?生活行为是否与得救相称,现在你们自己检讨,求圣灵光照你们。”

当晚我回到家中,圣灵不停发问:“你对神的态度如何?”我以为是自己思想,不理会这话,就想去看电视。忽然心中有股莫名的力量,使我回房中默想:“你对神的态度如何?”这让我回想初信主直到受洗的日子,神如何拯救我并赐平安予我和家人。我越想越羞愧,神的话真的像两刃剑刺透我的心。

我即时痛哭悔改,求祂赦免我的过错,也求神在我身上除去一切不合神心意的事,帮助我爱祂所爱、恶祂所恶,求祂掌管我的一生,赐我渴慕真理的心来讨神的喜悦,行在祂真理的道路上。认罪后我心里满有平安喜乐,从此以后学习留心听神的话,忘记背后,努力面前。

我们属神的儿女应把以往的失败成为鉴戒,也不可为现在的长进而心存骄傲。使徒保罗说:“我们原是没有可夸的,所夸的是夸主的十架。”愿神得着当得的荣耀!
