PUS  ÎN  CUMPĂNA  DIVINĂ …

„Ai fost cântărit în cumpănă, şi ai fost găsit uşor.“ (Daniel 5.27)

Pus în cumpăna divină,
Doamne, cât aş cântări?
Mi-ar fi inima senină
Sau, uimit, aş tresări?!
M-aş ascunde de lumină
Sau, smerit, Te-aş preamări?!3452_357838410979782_1448530313_n

Pus în cumpăna credinţei,
Sunt eu aur curăţit?!
Simt şi-n măduva fiinţei
Cum Calvarul m-a sfinţit?!
Sau, în mreaja neputinţei,
Zac şi-n zori şi-n asfinţit?!

Pus în cumpăna iubirii1095_405956579474177_1338076873_n
Oare cât aş fi de greu?
Port în freamătul trăirii
Flăcări vii din Dumnezeu?!
Sau doar spini, nu trandafirii,
Mişună pe câmpul meu?!59671_458253004213327_65214209_n

Pus în cumpăna răbdării,
Nu-s cumva găsit uşor?!
Merg pe drumul încercării
Liniştit şi-ncrezător?!
Sau, ca sclav al frământării,
N-am prezent, nici viitor?!390202_357854027644887_1940827591_n

Pus în cumpăna slujirii,
Clar se vede-un chip de rob
Care-n văile cârtirii
Nu aruncă nici un bob?!
Sau, din vasele jertfirii,
N-a rămas decât un ciob?!135051_356248887805401_1211122602_o

Pus în cumpăna dreptăţii,
În ce parte am s-o-nclin?
Sunt vrăjmaş al strâmbătăţii,
Sau sfinţeniei străin?!
Apăr porţile cetăţii,
Sau trădez când gloanţe vin?!706107_357863377643952_1000328606_o

Pus în cumpăna speranţei,
Par un deznădăjduit?!
Sau ofrandă cutezanţei
Inima mi-am dăruit?!
Umblu-n calmul siguranţei
Sau mi-i duhul năruit?!

*****578689_10150975117134542_2113747245_n

Cel ce stai mai sus de stele,
Dar pui omul pe cântar,
Dă substanţă vieţii mele
Să nu curgă în zadar:
Pe senin şi-n zile rele
Să trăiesc frumos, prin har!

GQ-QOTW_01

Question: “What sort of New Year’s Resolution should a Christian make?”

Answer: The practice of making New Year’s resolutions goes back over 3,000 years to the ancient Babylonians. There is just something about the start of a new year that gives us the feeling of a fresh start and a new beginning. In reality, there is no difference between December 31 and January 1. Nothing mystical occurs at midnight on December 31. The Bible does not speak for or against the concept of New Year’s resolutions. However, if a Christian determines to make a New Year’s resolution, what kind of resolution should he or she make? Common New Year’s resolutions are commitments to quit smoking, to stop drinking, to manage money more wisely, and to spend more time with family. By far, the most common New Year’s resolution is to lose weight, in conjunction with exercising more and eating more healthily. These are all good goals to set. However, 1 Timothy 4:8 instructs us to keep exercise in perspective: “For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.” The vast majority of New Year’s resolutions, even among Christians, are in relation to physical things. This should not be. Many Christians make New Year’s resolutions to pray more, to read the Bible every day, and to attend church more regularly. These are fantastic goals. However, these New Year’s resolutions fail just as often as the non-spiritual resolutions, because there is no power in a New Year’s resolution. Resolving to start or stop doing a certain activity has no value unless you have the proper motivation for stopping or starting that activity. For example, why do you want to read the Bible every day? Is it to honor God and grow spiritually, or is it because you have just heard that it is a good thing to do? Why do you want to lose weight? Is it to honor God with your body, or is it for vanity, to honor yourself? Philippians 4:13 tells us, “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.” John 15:5 declares, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” If God is the center of your New Year’s resolution, it has chance for success, depending on your commitment to it. If it is God’s will for something to be fulfilled, He will enable you to fulfill it. If a resolution is not God honoring and/or is not in agreement in God’s Word, we will not receive God’s help in fulfilling the resolution. So, what sort of New Year’s resolution should a Christian make? Here are some suggestions: (1) pray to the Lord for wisdom (James 1:5) in regards to what resolutions, if any, He would have you make; (2) pray for wisdom as to how to fulfill the goals God gives you; (3) rely on God’s strength to help you; (4) find an accountability partner who will help you and encourage you; (5) don’t become discouraged with occasional failures; instead, allow them to motivate you further; (6) don’t become proud or vain, but give God the glory. Psalm 37:5-6 says, “Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.”

GQ-QOTW_01

Question: “What is the true meaning of Christmas?”

Answer: The true meaning of Christmas is love. John 3:16-17 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” The true meaning of Christmas is the celebration of this incredible act of love. The real Christmas story is the story of God’s becoming a human being in the Person of Jesus Christ. Why did God do such a thing? Because He loves us! Why was Christmas necessary? Because we needed a Savior! Why does God love us so much? Because He is love itself (1 John 4:8). Why do we celebrate Christmas each year? Out of gratitude for what God did for us, we remember His birth by giving each other gifts, worshipping Him, and being especially conscious of the poor and less fortunate. The true meaning of Christmas is love. God loved His own and provided a way—the only Way—for us to spend eternity with Him. He gave His only Son to take our punishment for our sins. He paid the price in full, and we are free from condemnation when we accept that free gift of love. “But God demonstrated His own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

GEORGE MULLER

 – un om al ascultarii

prin Emi Zarnescu

George Muller (1805 – 1898) poate fi caracterizat printr-o multime de cuvinte insa dupa ce am citit o biografie simplificata a lui am ramas cu impresia ca ceea ce l-a carcaterizat cel mai mult a fost ascultarea.

Multi il vad pe Muller ca fiind un vizionar, un monument al curajului in credinta, si nu putem spune ca nu a fost asa, insa biografia lui ne ajut sa intelegem ca ceea ce el a dorit sa faca cel mai mult a fost sa asculte de Dumnezeu si sa faca voia Lui iar in acest scop si-a concentrat toata energia pe rugaciune, studiul Cuvantului si aplicarea acestuia in viata lui.

Pentru cine cauta resurse pentru conducere iata un material care ofera o variant cu adevara biblica a ceea ce inseamna liderul spiritual.

Din punctul meu de vedere lucrarea lui Goerge Muller nu este neaparat cel mai important lucru pe care il putem invata ci modul in care el a reusit sa faca ceea ce a facut. Ii poti numara pe degete pe cei care pot faca o lucrare asa mare, insa modul lui de lucru si relatia lui Dumnezeu este posibila oricarui credincios.

 In putine cuvinte iata cateva date statistice:

In 21 aprilie 1836 deschide primul orfelinat pentru fete cu varste intre 7 si 12 ani, insa cererile si nevoile orasului fac ca sa accepte si fetite mai mici de pana la 4 ani. Banii cu care a pornit la drum erau 5 lire.

In 15 iunie 1837 deschide al doilea orfelinat dar pentru baieti cu varste de peste 7 ani si in acelasi an dar in luna octombrie dechide un al treila orfelinat tot pentru baieti.

La inceput numarul copiilor era in jur de 30 insa incetul cu incetul numarul a crescut iar casele inchiriate din oras nu mai faceau fata numarului mare de copii si de personal; pana si canalizarea devenise mica pentur nevoile lor, asa ca incepe sa se gandeasca daca nu cumva trebuie sa construiasca ceva. Deja in 1845 erau 300 de copii plus personalul aditional.

Analizeaza aceasta posibilitate si  in 1846 cumpara un teren in afara orasului pe care se vor construi orfelinatele ce vor gazdui sute si chiar mii de copii – ajungand la un moment dat la 3000 de copii.

cladirile construite de Muller in Ashley Down, langa Bristosl, pentru a adapostii orfanii

Desi George Muller este cunoscut mai mult prin lucrarea lui cu orfelinatele, totusi aceasta a fost doar o parte a activitatilor lui.

Impreuna cu colaboratorii si prietenii lui a infiintat Asociatia pentru raspandirea Bibliei, o lucrare care s-a intins de-a lungul Europei si care a distribuit Biblii in marile orase ale Europei. Bibliile sunt tiparite in Anglia in 13 limbi si astfel dupa o perioada de intuneric spiritual si Inchizitiei  apar si pe strazile Madridului primele Biblii care se dau ca “painea calda”. Sunt distribuite in intreaba Europa zeci de mii de Biblii care au ca rezultat convertirea multora doar prin simpla cititre a Scripturii.

Aceasta nu a fost tot. Pe langa faptul ca era implicat cu orfelinatele mai era si pastor si implicat in lucrarea bisericeasca. A fost de asemenea un pion important in miscarea de inviorare spirituala numita “Fratii” care a dus la aparitia multor biserici pe insula Britanica. (alaturat o imagine a biroului lui )

Apoi in anul 1872 simte ca Dumnezeu il cheama sa faca si altceva, adica la varsta de 67 de ani – si astfel preda conducerea orfelinatelor ginerelui sau James Wright, un om de incredere si cu o mare credinta iar el porneste misionar si predicator prin toata lumea, raspunzand la invitatii pe toate continetele si povestind ce a putut sa faca Dumnezeu prin el.

Majoritatea celor care l-au cunoscut sustin ca cea mai importanta lucrare a vietii lui a fost aceasta perioada de inca 15 ani de misiune in intreaga lume in care a vestit Evanghelia si a predicat in toata lumea.

 

George Muller trece la cele vesnice pe data de 10 martie 1898 in camera lui situata intr-o cladire a orfelinatelor, acolo unde se restrasese pentru ultimii ani din viata. In 14 martie 1898 are loc inmormantarea si intreag orasul Bristol participa, impreuna cu toti orfanii care erau atunci la orfelinat. Se adauaga participanti de prin toate colturile Angliei si multi alti orfani care acum erau adulti si oameni implicate in lucrare, iar numarul celor prezenti se ridica usor la cateva zeci de mii de suflete care au venit s ail conduca pe ultimul drum pe cel care a fost un simbol al orasului Bristol, dar mai ales un martor a lui Cristos cunoscut in intrega lume la acea vreme.
