基督在“隔壁”为你代祷

我们常听说基督以他在加略山的死为我们预备的救恩。但,很少有人提到他为我们灵命成长而“继续着的”祷告事工。正如耶稣在受试探时为彼得祷告一样(路2231-32),他在父的宝座前为我们代祷。只要我们需要他的帮助,安慰和祝福,耶稣的代祷就不会停止

罗伯特·默里·麦克谢恩——19世纪受人爱戴的苏格兰牧师——写道:“如果我能听到基督在隔壁为我祷告,我就不会害怕百万之众的敌人。对基督来说,天上与隔壁并无二致。他正在为我祷告!”

有一次,我深陷危机。结果,我以一种全新而奇妙的方式领会了《希伯来书》第七章说的真理。撒但似乎从四面八方向我攻击,我求神为我“辩护”。第二天问题解决了。我知道这是因为主介入的缘故。我从来没有像那天那样——那么强烈地意识到主耶稣的“大祭师职事”。 (来81

如果时下你正处在“困境”里,告诉耶稣。他会把你的问题告诉天父。透过他的代祷,你将体验到只有藉着他的代祷方能成就的“非凡成果”。

Christ’s Unfinished Work

We often hear of the salvation Christ provided at Calvary when He died for our sins. But little is said of His continuing ministry of prayer for our spiritual growth. Just as Jesus prayed for Peter in a time of severe temptation (Luke 22:31-32), so also He intercedes before the Father’s throne on our behalf. This vital work of the Savior will go on as long as we are in need of His help, comfort, and blessing.

Robert Murray McCheyne, the beloved Scottish minister of the 19th century, wrote, “If I could hear Christ praying for me in the next room, I would not fear a million enemies. Yet the distance makes no difference. He is praying for me!”

During a deep personal crisis, I realized the truth of Hebrews 7 in a new and wonderful way. Satan seemed to be attacking me on every side. So I asked the Lord to plead for me. The next day the problem was solved, and I knew it was the Lord’s special intervention. Never before had I been so conscious of the Savior’s high-priestly ministry (8:1).

If you are having great difficulty, tell Jesus about it. He will present your needs to the Father. Through His intercessory work, you’ll experience the remarkable results that only His prayers can accomplish.
