盼望

「我們得救是在乎盼望。」(羅824
   
有一位美國空軍駕駛員,在官校唸書的時候,認識了一位可愛的女子。畢業前,他們在眾親友的祝福中,以莊嚴華麗的軍禮,舉行了結婚儀式。婚後小兩口相親相愛,共渡了兩年愉快的時光。然後先生就被派遣去參加越戰。臨別時,先生保證八個月後任務結束就回家團聚,妻子也難分難捨,專心期待。沒想到丈夫一出勤,就被越共將飛機打下來,活生生被逮捕。這一關就關了六年。他在監獄中過的簡直不是人的生活,每天受疲勞轟炸的審問,吃著狗都不吃的食物。但是他憑著堅強的信念,和對妻子懷念的盼望,終於渡過了漫長的日子。在牢獄中,每天他都在想﹕回去以後他們要怎樣生活,離職以後做什麼事,如何佈置自己的家,生兩個孩子,如何教育他們。他就是靠著編織美夢而繼續活下去。六年之後,他終於獲得解救,而回到了他自己的家鄉。但是來迎接的,不是美麗的妻子,而是滿臉愁容的父母,並且帶來叫人傷心欲絕的消息。原來,等了他六年的妻子,在音訊全無的情況下,於六個月前,已經提出離婚,嫁給另外一個人了。幾年以後這位軍人回顧說﹕「即使如此,我也不能怨恨前妻,也是因為她給了我一段美好的時光,使我在獄中能編織那麼多的美夢。就是靠著這些盼望,我才能渡過那些堅苦的歲月,而沒有落自殺的地步。」

人活著必須有盼望,沒有盼望的人是無法生存的。但什麼是盼望的基礎呢?如果所盼望的只是憑空的想像,好比夢想中樂透獎發大財,就根本不能幫助我們去實踐理想。如果所盼望的是在乎善變的人事物,那麼環境改變,最後還是落到虛空的地步。真正盼望的基礎,應當是永不改變全能的神。因祂是信實的,祂必成就祂的應許。因祂的慈愛的,祂必保守祂的兒女。世界正如熱力學第二定律,是愈來愈向亂度大的方向發展。但是信靠主的人,卻有真實的盼望,知道我們所走的路是愈來愈光明。

Hope

  

  “For in this hope we were saved.” (Rom.8: 24)

   An American Air Force pilot told his story.  When he was in the AF Academy, he knew a beautiful girl.  They were married in a splendid wedding in the Academy with many blessing form relatives and friends. After his graduation, and two years of happy marriage, the husband was called to duty in Vietnam War.  He promised to his wife that he will return in eight month and they will resume their love.  His wife was also committed to the marriage.  But unfortunately, he was shot down by the enemy in a mission and captured as POW.  They kept him in jail for six years.  Everyday he was tortured and treated worse than an animal.  They kept him in a small cell and gave him the food even dog won’t eat.  But with strong will to survive and hope for his wife, he went through those terrified years.  Everyday, he was thinking, how he would appreciate his life after his return home, how he decorated his house, how he raised up his children, how he played with them.  He totally depended on his dreams in order to survive.  Six years later, indeed he was saved and released from prison, and returned to his hometown.  But those who came to welcome him were not his beautiful wife but his worrisome parents.  They brought him the bad news.  His wife waited for him almost six years, but gave up.  She filed for divorce and married another person six month ago.  Later on this jet pilot recalled: “Even so, I do not hate my ex-wife.  She gave me some good memories, so that I was able to dream of the future that kept me in hope when I was in prison.  Because of this hope, I did not commit suicide.”

   Man has to have hope to live Without hope no one can survive.  What is the basis of hope?  If our hope is based on imagination, such as getting the jackpot of lottery, it cannot help us to fulfill our idea.  If our hope is based on other or circumstance, when the situation changes, we will lose our hope.  The true foundation of hope should be the never changing God.  He is faithful, he will accomplish his promise.  He is love, he will keep his children.  It is like the Second Law of Thermal Dynamics, the whole world in moving toward deterioration.  However, for those believing in God,.  We have true hope, and we know the path we walk on will become brighter with each passing day.
