<<2018년 7월 19일 목요일>>#오늘의묵상 [사사기 6:1-10] 지금 이스라엘에 필요한 것은 회개
타락, 고난, 부르짖음 그리고 구원으로 이어지는 사사기의 전형적인 이야기가 새롭게 시작된다. 특이한 것은, 이스라엘 백성들이 이전보다 더욱 극심한 고난 가운데서 하나님을 찾았지만, 하나님은 구원의 손길을 바로 내미시지 않았다는 것이다.
10 내가 또 너희에게 이르기를 나는 너희의 하나님 여호와이니 너희가 거주하는 아모리 사람의 땅의 신들을 두려워하지 말라 하였으나 너희가 내 목소리를 듣지 아니하였느니라 하셨다 하니라 (개역개정)
10 그때에 내가 너희에게 말했다. 나는 너희 하나님 여호와다. 너희는 아모리 사람의 땅에서 살게 될 것이다. 하지만 너희는 그들의 신을 섬겨서는 안 된다. 그러나 너희는 나의 말에 순종하지 않았다.'" (쉬운성경)
10 <<너희가 내 목소리를 듣지 아니하였느니라>>
이스라엘은 다시 하나님의 도움을 구하며 부르짖는다(6-7절). 그런데 앞선 이야기와는 다른 점은, 이전까지는 백성의 부르짖음에 하나님이 곧바로 사사를 보내어 응답해 주셨는데, 본문에서는 그러한 신속한 구원이 없다는 것이다. 하나님은 이스라엘을 구원할 사사 대신 한 선지자를 보내셔서 언약을 깨뜨린 그들의 죄를 지적하시는데, 그들의 고난이 언약에 따라 받게 된 당연한 결과임을 말씀하신다. 즉, 지금은 하나님의 심판의 때임을 선포하고 계신다.
여기서 “내 목소리”는 모세에게 주셨고 여호수아에게 주셨던 언약의 말씀(신명기; 수 23-24장)을 가리키는 것으로, 가깝게는 사사기 서두에서 주셨던 말씀을 기억하게 한다(2:1-5). 이스라엘이 하나님만 섬긴다면 축복이 있겠지만, 우상을 섬기게 된다면 저주가 있을 것이라는 말씀을 백성은 다시 잊어버린 것이다.
→ <절별 해설> 중에서 일부 구절만 발췌해서 올린 것입니다.
이스라엘은 “여호와의 손이 짧아 구원하지 못하심도 아니요 귀가 둔하여 듣지 못하심도 아니라 오직 너희 죄악이 너희와 너희 하나님 사이를 갈라놓았고 너희 죄가 그의 얼굴을 가리어서 너희에게서 듣지 않으시게 함이니라”(사 59:1-2)는 말씀을 알아야 했다. 이스라엘 자손들이 가장 먼저 해야 할 일은 그들의 현재 모습을 돌아보아 문제를 바로잡는 것이었다. 지금 눈앞의 적이 문제가 아니라는 것이다. 눈앞의 문제만 본다면 절대로 회개할 수 없다. 걱정과 두려움 그리고 원망만 있을 뿐이다. 하지만 하나님을 볼 때 자기의 믿음 없음을 회개할 수 있다. 회개는 하나님이 적보다 크심을 깨닫게 하여 하나님만 붙잡게 만들어 준다. 미디안을 눈앞에 둔 지금 이스라엘에게 필요한 것은 회개다.
하나님, 믿음 있는 자가 되기 소원합니다. 그래서 어떠한 상황 가운데서도 하나님께 소망을 두고 살도록 도와주소서.

Work day OFF, me time ON #🛀🏻 #brb // also, this is a must read excerpt from #TheEucharist on how we are called to put on the Love of Christ and manifest it to the world 》》The essence of the Church lies in the manifestation and presence in the world of love as life and life as love. Fulfilling herself in love, she witnesses in the world to this love. She bears it to the world and with it she ministers to creation. In it each person mysteriously obtains the power to "yearn with the affection of Christ Jesus" (Phil 1:8) and to be a witness to and bearer of this love in the world. #amen#sogood ..oh #AlexanderSchmemann , you kill me
Today is what would have been Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday but also, apparently, National Listening Day. I think of his hears imprisoned feeling alone, misunderstood, unheard. I think there is a certain exhaustion that comes from feeling like all the things inside you are unheard, or worse—heard and unappreciated. I think it is important to our survival, as a species, to find spaces where we can feel listened to. But I also feel that a similar exhaustion occurs when we are always in output, never stopping to find value in what comes out of someone else’s mouth.
So in the spirit of asking and listening I’m gonna make an uncharacteristically short(ish) post and ask my first question of you, the reader:
As a nation of immigrants, refugees, and transplants it’s always fascinating to me why people choose to celebrate and remember the people they do. Why do you, personally, feel like it’s important for us as a nation to take time to celebrate a South African or any person or value outside of our national “norm”? Or, how have you seen spaces created for underrepresented people without a strong voice in your communities?

“Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel, And his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: ‘I am the First and I am the Last; Besides Me there is no God. And who can proclaim as I do? Then let him declare it and set it in order for Me, Since I appointed the ancient people. And the things that are coming and shall come, Let them show these to them. Do not fear, nor be afraid; Have I not told you from that time, and declared it? You are My witnesses. Is there a God besides Me? Indeed there is no other Rock; I know not one. ’ ”

...Love does not boast, it is not proud... Even though there is a separate mention of these two seemingly identical adjectives, they are mentioned for a specific reason. The love Christ (God) calls for His believers (Christians) to have for everyone does not give room for bragging about and flaunting what we have or counting ourselves as better than another. We might be able to sum it up in one word: #humble .
We can be grateful for what we have and are able to do; but, true gratitude should cause us to use those things (talents, etc) to further His kingdom, display the love of God to others, sharing the truth about eternity, calling them to repentance and to the rest only Christ can give.
It surprises me how many people I talk to that feel like they have to prove their worth as a “good person” for God to love them. They think that if they’ve sinned too much, there’s no way God could love them... and I’m so happy to say that God loves you anyway. There’s no good deed that could make him love you more than he already does, nor is there any bad deed that could make him love you less. What a great God we serve! Did you miss last week’s post?

When people say, "God would never.." or "God said it once, so it is forgotten," amongst many other excuses for justification, you haven't truly encountered Jesus Christ. GOD WOULD NEVER GO AGAINST HIS OWN WORD. But people like to argue, "the Bible is corrupt and filled with contradictions." Well i'm here to tell you that if you have the Holy Ghost Spirit of God dwelling upon you, and you read the Word of God in that Spirit, you will never be deceived, the word of God will make more sense to you than any textbook given by man, and you will SEE the power of Almighty God. Legalizing abominations, and complaining, "Where is your god while we suffer?" Are you kidding me? Nations that forget God, shall bring forth the wrath of God. GOD DOES NOT CONTRADICT HIS WORD. It is eternal, as He is. He spoke LIFE into the scriptures. Carnal minds cannot comprehend it! Receive the Spirit, receive salvation, know our Creator, our Father, and REPENT... ⏳
🔥But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1 Corinthians 2:14🔥
🔥And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. Jeremiah 31:34🔥
🔥The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. Psalm 9:17🔥
“I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one's head pointed toward the sun, one's feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death.”
