会长的话(六)代代相传:门训,一辈子的事(门训更加专注)

文/池金代(砂拉越华人年议会会长)

上个世纪,70年代末期,读大学的时候,认识一位弟兄,他带领一位新来的朋友信耶稣。信耶稣之后,他陪他一起读圣经和祷告,所以每天早上六点钟,就在大学附近二十四小时开着门的路德会小圣堂里灵修。除了每天早上一起灵修,他们也每个星期一次聚集,使用导航会的材料查考圣经,为要打稳基督徒的信仰根基,就这样训练了主的门徒。

每次聚集祷告时,他们都为着他刚刚来美国读书,也是刚刚信耶稣的妹妹祷告。感谢主,垂听祷告,在另外一个城市大学读书的妹妹也有人关心她的灵命成长,也是用同样的材料来栽培她,训练她成为主的门徒。

有一天,妹妹来探望哥哥,哥哥刚好没有空去接她,就托这位弟兄去巴士站接她,看到她,不食人间烟火的模样,惊为天人。长话短说,后来她就成为了他的女朋友,再后来,就成为了他的夫人,二位同心同行走天涯。

所以我说啊,门训(门徒训练)真是好,不只能够训练人成为主的门徒,说不定也能够娶到门徒的妹妹成为老婆,夫复何求?更重要的是,门训是主耶稣命令我们必须做的事情,我们非听从不可:“所以你们要去,使万民做我的门徒,奉父、子、圣灵的名给他们施洗,凡我所吩咐你们的,都教训他们遵守。我就常与你们同在,直到世界的末了。”(太28:19-20)

这就是大家耳熟能详的大使命,这个大使命的命令只有一个:“使万民做主门徒”,但是在这个命令之下需要采取三个简单的步骤,也就是原文(希腊文)的分词(participles):去(going),洗(baptizing),教(teaching)。这些分词是描绘大使命之下需要有的工作:

  1. 去:做布道的工作,带领未信者信耶稣,得到新生命。主耶稣呼召我们去天下人间传扬福音,使人归主:“他又对他们说:你们往普天下去,传福音给万民听,信而受洗的必然得救,不信的必被定罪。”(可16:15-16)

  2. 洗:做栽培的工作,带领已信者委身耶稣,接受洗礼,活出新生命。我们带领人信主之后,却没有栽培他们成长,就如把他们当做弃婴,丢在垃圾桶里。我们一定要栽培初信者到委身于主的地步,以至于他们可以受洗,归入主的死,并且与主一同复活,过着新的生活,正如使徒保罗所说:“岂不知我们这受洗归入基督耶稣的人,是受洗归入他的死麽?所以我们藉着洗礼归入死和他一同埋葬,原是叫我们一举一动有新生的样式,像基督藉着父的荣耀从死里复活一样。”(罗六3-4)

  3. 教:做训练的工作,带领委身者成为门训者,遵行主的话语,好叫他们也能够带领未信者信耶稣,也能够栽培和训练人成为主的门徒,如此可以生产新门徒,繁衍众多,代代相传,就如使徒保罗吩咐提摩太的:“你在许多见证人面前听见我所教训的,也要交托那忠心能教导别人的人。”(提后二2)

上个世纪头半个世纪,一些基督教机构如30年代开始的导航会(Navigators),50年代创办的学园传道会(Campus Crusade for Christ,现称为Cru)等,都是为着弥补教会的缺陷而成立的福音机构(Parachurch organization),因为教会普遍忽略了大使命,也就是忽略了门训的工作,缺乏个人的布道,栽培和训练。

在大学时,我领受了大使命的异象,也受了一点的门徒训练,所以无论去那里,紧紧记住主的命令,并且遵行大使命,不敢怠慢,因为我知道,如果没有遵行大使命,我活在世上是一个没有用的人。所以我过去牧会17年也好,后来教神学17年也好,现在做会长也好,我一定要专注门训,参与布道,栽培和训练的工作。我经历到主同在的应许:“我就常与你们同在,直到世界的末了。”(太28:20下)

感谢主,“门训”是我会最近几年最吃香的课题和活动之一,这是好的,但希望不是像一阵风那样吹过去,来得快,去得也快,一下子就不见了。

门训是一辈子的事情,也是我们要专注的事奉,让我们一同经历主的同在。
