人際關係
作者:讀經:哥林多後書六章3至13節

一間電話公司用了一句很有意思的話來作它的廣告。那句話只是簡單的一句:「請主動接觸人」。一個人如果主動接觸人,便有可能開始一段深厚的關係,或使一個面臨破裂的關係得著修補。因此,每個人都應學習更多主動接觸人。

在今天的經文中,我們看見保羅如何急於與哥林多信徒修補關係。保羅知道他們當中有些信徒對他不滿,於是他便主動向他們伸出友誼之手。究竟有多少人對他不滿呢?我們並不知道,然而,即使是兩、三個人之間的不和,也一樣會造成教會的紛爭。

保羅最關心的,是不要讓任何東西使基督的名蒙羞,或影響教會及他本人的見證。他顯然希望他們之間的誤解可以消除,回復親密的相交關係。他敢說自己是愛他們每一個人的。他在第11節表明,他的心是向他們張開的。他愛他的朋友;但他同時亦愛那些反對他和攻擊他的敵人。他的心是向他們每一個人敞開的。我們何等需要學習保羅的廣闊心胸!

然而,愛與溝通必須是一種雙向交流。保羅的困擾,是他們沒有以愛來待他(12、13節)。你若向對方開放,但對方卻毫無反應,便不可能建立相交的關係。人與人能坦誠、開放地溝通,乃是互相信任的標記。有愛,便能互相交流。

甚麼才是真正的相交呢?就是一顆勇於坦露的心,得到別人的真誠回應。大部分教會都需要加強信徒之間的相交關係。每個角落都有孤單的人,在教會的群體中也不例外。今天就讓我們去主動接觸人吧!也部A你或對方都能因此而得益和蒙神的祝福。


RELATIONSHIPS

BIBLE READING:2 Corinthians 6:3-13

A telephone company had an excellent, meaningful theme in their advertising. It was the phrase ‵Reach out and touch someone‵. That can be the way to start or develop a meaningful relationship. It can restore a broken relationship. It is something we all ought to do more often.

In our reading today you can see how anxious Paul was to restore relationships with the Corinthian believers. Something had come between them and himself and Paul was reaching out to them again. How many were actually against Paul in the Corinthian church? We do not know, but it doesn‵t take many to cause disruptions in a church does it? One or two ‵stirrers‵ will do it.

Paul‵s constant concern was that nothing would reflect on the name of Christ, or on the testimony of the church or on his own testimony. It was obvious that he wanted the love of the Corinthian Christians and for fellowship to be restored. He could say he loved them all. Verse 11 says his heart was opened wide to them. He loved his friends. He loved those who were his enemies, those who opposed him, the difficult ones. He included them all. What an example for us!

But love and communication must be a two-way street. Paul‵s problem was that they were not loving him in return (verses 12,13).
Relationships, fellowship cannot be built where there is no response. Free, open communication is the mark of trust. Love communicates.

What is true fellowship? It is one heart openly responding to another heart. One of the greatest needs in most churches is greater emphasis on fellowship. We must do more than sit, sing, listen and leave. There are lonely people everywhere, including in our church congregations. Why not ‵reach out and touch someone today‵? It could be the beginning of a meaningful, helpful relationship for you both. It could bring great blessing into your life. Why not do it today??

REACH OUT AND TOUCH SOMEONE – TODAY!
