Advent Word, Day 4 ‘listen’

Day 4 #listen #聆聽 Wednesday November 30

‘On the cross, exposed and vulnerable, Jesus draws the whole world in a loving embrace. Everything hangs, everyone is held here. Jesus holds the people of Charlestown and Ferguson and Baltimore and all around the globe. Jesus listens to the grieving and grappling, the terrorized and troubled, the frightened and crying. Jesus listens to all the heartache, all the questions. On the cross Jesus bears the weight, the weight of the world, holding us all in his wounded hands’.

被釘在十字架上,那軟弱之身毫無遮掩的耶穌,吸引著全世界進入祂愛的懷抱。所有的人、事、物都蒙受祂的擁抱及關懷,包括居住在查爾斯敦、佛格森、巴爾的摩,還有其他各地的人,他們的悲傷、苦悶、驚恐、困擾、害怕、以及呼求,耶穌都聽見了。耶穌聽取每位傷痛者的心聲,也聆聽我們一切的問題。在十字架上,耶穌擔負世人的重擔,祂那被釘傷的雙手,還緊緊握住我們所有人。
