Pastoral letter 3rd January 2021

牧聲 二零二一年一月三日

As we turn the page of the new year, let’s consider how the preventive measures for COVID19 can serve to remind us of the importance of following Jesus daily.

Following the daily 11am briefing by the NSW Premier and Chief Medical Officer has become a norm for all of us in the past months. We learn about the government’s health advice and restrictions and make or change our plans accordingly. We might have to cancel a pre-arranged dinner or plan for a get-together bearing in mind the limits on public gathering. Based on the current long list of hotspots, were trace and reflect on our past steps to check for possible risk.

For the wellbeing of ourselves, our family and our community, we follow, reflect upon and take action on this piece of critical health information on a daily basis. Likewise in following Jesus, we ought to exercise diligence in following, reflecting and acting on His word.

When is our “11am daily briefing” so we may get crucial information from Jesus each day? It may come in the form of 10 minutes reading, praying or quietness in the Lord. From there, we learn about what Jesus says which is absolutely fundamental for our spiritual health. And then we act on what we learnt and reflect on our past actions.

In order to keep well physically, we attentively observe the restriction measures and advice given by the government. In order to keep well spiritually, we should follow a similar pattern with a humble heart. The similarity and the outcome are so obvious but they can be easily overlooked.

Dear Jesus, you are full of love, grace and truth. Please help us to have our “11amdaily briefing” with you so we can follow you closely every day in 2021. Amen.

當新的一年來到時,請思想我們為新冠疫情採取的防禦措施,以致提醒我們每天跟隨耶穌的重要性。

追蹤每天早上十一時紐省省長及醫務處長發佈的消息,已成為我們過去幾個月來習以為常的事情。我們一旦了解到政府的醫療建議或限制,就會相應地確定或改變我們的計劃。我們可能取消一頓已安排好的晚飯,在有限制的公眾聚會內計劃相聚。鑑於現時出現疫情的熱點眾多,我們會回憶、思想以往的足跡,以防可能存在的風險。

為著我們自己、我們的家人及社區的福祉,我們每天都會按這個重要的健康資訊來跟從、思想、行事。這和我們跟蹤耶穌很相似;我們應該也一樣用心地按衪的話來跟從、思想、行事。

我們的「每天早上十一時的發報」在何時,以致能夠每天從耶穌那裡得到重要的信息呢?它可能是在主裡閱讀、祈禱或安靜的十分鐘。從那裡,我們學習到耶穌所說的是甚麼,這對我們靈命的成長是至關重要的。然後我們實踐所學的,也反省以往所作的。

為著身體的健康,我們著意地遵循政府的限制措施和忠告。為著靈性的健康,我們也應該以謙虛的心遵行相似的模式。這其中的類似與果效是如此的明顯,但很多時候卻很容易被我們忽略。

親愛的主耶穌啊,袮滿有慈愛、恩典和真理,求讓我們都與袮有「每天早上十一時的發報」,以致我們能在2021年,每天緊緊地跟隨袮。阿們。
