喬治穆勒的事奉秘訣

某人問喬治穆勒(George Muller)的事奉秘訣,穆勒問答說:「在那一天當我死了,完全的死了」;說這話時,他將身體彎低下來,低到一個地步差不多觸到地面—「向喬治穆勒死了,他的意見、喜好、品味、志向—向世界死了,它的認同或反對—甚至向我的弟兄及朋友們的稱許或指摘死了—從那時開始我就學會了只要得著神的認同便夠了。」
 
今天的教會不是需要更多高言大智的人,乃是需要真正在神面謙卑及死己的人。今天像喬治穆勒一樣的謙卑及死己的人在哪呢?

神的話說知識叫人自高自大,當我們的看見越過越高時,難得有幾個人能夠謙卑下來去傾聽主藉著聖徒們向他所說的鮮活話語.甚至只要聖徒們一有困惑立即就以要拔高聖徒們屬靈的口味為由,要求聖徒們只能遵守某某的教訓因為那等於所謂的獨一的職事或說話等這就是今天地方召會宗派的帶領者所極力推廣的!

主 ,求?極深的憐憫了!

I am confused these days. I have prety much the same touch as heshbonn. My question is somehow like 'parodox'.

I have the feeling that we all uunder God the creator of the universe. When we feel 'local church' is not 'healthy' nowadays. How are we so sure that we are right and yet 'they' are wrong?

Every religious group claim that they hold truth of the universe, you know. HELP.....

We have inside us a somewhat strong urge to 'refresh' our brothers and sisters in tht 'Local Church'. Yet, stories keep replay century after century that 'Suffering' and finally 'Moving yourself out of the old group' in the church history. Even happened in the old testement, right?

Leave the organization, the once called itself 'organic'. It is like rolling snow balls. When you roll a snow ball of
1 foot diameter, you know it gets harder and harder to roll/move. Yet, I guess the snow inside this big snow ball feel very comfortable......

The responsibilities on our shoulders are different from individuals to individuals. And I strongly believe that if you were the one God put you in the comfortable snow ball, you won't have some much feelings toward the many "mal-practices" in Recovery Churchs. Some of the "malpractices" are even having a strong impact on our basic Christian belief, and to deviate the saints away from Bible and God in a very subtle way. My experience has been very pratical as well as plesure. Whenever I felt confused, I left the crowd (remember this was also what Jusus did when He was ministering on the earth) and came to Him to "refresh" my relationship with Him. If your heart doesn't allow you to read Morning Revival daily instead of Bible, just easily set it aside to go with Bible. If you feel "following the flow" impedes you from "following your spirit," just slow down and jump out of the Tsumani, find yourself a personal place to listen to your heart. In the near future, I have burden to write something regarding how to survive in such an unhealthy atmosphere. Most of the suggestions will be very practical (saints in recovery churchs don't need biblical eloquence anymore)and suggestions will be given based on my personal experiences.
