創辦人的話|偉大心胸的國度觀 The Kingdom Of Great Hearts

001文/印尼沙崙玫瑰教會副主任牧師 腓力‧曼都法牧師

「他必使父親的心轉向兒女,兒女的心轉向父親,免得我來咒詛遍地。」(瑪4:6)

在神國度裡,所謂的屬靈父親不是關乎實際上的年齡,而是關乎擁有像耶穌的成熟度、知識和權柄。毫無疑問的,「父親」是一個擁有偉大心胸的世代。比起一個膚淺的位份,他們的角色更是毫不吝嗇地教導屬靈孩子,關於一切他們所知道的和所經歷過的。

當然,要能時常空出時間,並且能在門徒面前保有一顆柔軟且易碎的心不是一件容易的事。然而謙卑就是關鍵。偉大的心胸必須要「願意」看見後輩在他們的信心、禱告與引導下,達成神國度裡更偉大的境界。而這些都是為了神國度的擴張與彰顯神榮耀的緣故。

從另一個角度來看,神國度裡的屬靈孩子,應該要全心尊榮他們的屬靈父親。而順服屬靈父親的領導和權柄應是出自於愛,不是恐懼。

就如同孩子完全被接納一般,他們也應該學習如何接納他們父親的剛強與軟弱。在神的國度裡沒有膚淺的表演和言談,只有愛、信心和偉大的心胸。

所以,讓神國度裡的父親成為激勵屬靈孩子的信心榜樣。不是讓孩子像他們,而是超越他們!這才是真正的屬靈父親與我們天上的父所真正渴望的!

歡迎進入到更大的恩膏

你們在耶穌理的的父親/兒子

The Kingdom Of Great Hearts

“And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the sons, and the heartof the sons to the fathers, that I not come and strike the earth withutter destruction” (Mal 4:6)

Spiritual fatherhood in the kingdom of God is not about physical age; but Christ-like maturity, knowledge and authority. Undoubtedly, fathers are a generation of the great hearts. Instead of mere position, their role is to teach everything they know and experience to their spirirual children-sparing nothing.

Yes, it’s never been naturally easy to be so available and vulnerable even to your own disciples. Humility is key. Great hearts must be willing to see their juniors achieve greater status in the kingdom as a result of theirfaith and prayerful mentoring. Loving people into greatness and all for the purpose of expanding the kingdom of God and glorifying the King!

Spiritual children in the kingdom of God, on the other hand, should honor their fathers with all of their hearts. Submission to their fathers’ leadership and authority must not come out of fear, but love.

As much as they have been unconditionally accepted, should they learn to accept their fathers’ strengths and weaknesses. For the kingdom of God does not consist of performance nor talk; but of love, faith, and great hearts!

Now, let the fathers in the kingdom be great examples of faith who inspire. Not so that their children should be like them, but to be greater than them! For this is what these fathers-and our heavenly Father- truly desire.

Welcome to the greater anointing!

Your father/son in Christ,
Pastor Philip
Sincerely,
Ps. Philip Mantofa
