    THE BELOVED DISCIPLE
    Bible Reading:  
    John 1: 35-42

    35 Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples.

    36 And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, “Behold the Lamb of God!”

    37 The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.

    38 Then Jesus turned, and seeing them following, said to them, “What do you seek?”

    They said to Him, “Rabbi” (which is to say, when translated, Teacher), “where are You staying?”

    39 He said to them, “Come and see.” They came and saw where He was staying, and remained with Him that day (now it was about the tenth hour).

    40 One of the two who heard John speak, and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother.

    41 He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which is translated, the Christ).

    42 And he brought him to Jesus.

    Now when Jesus looked at him, He said, “You are Simon the son of Jonah.[i] You shall be called Cephas” (which is translated, A Stone).
 
 
    There are several names on the list of disciples about whom we know almost nothing. That is not true of John, often called the “Beloved disciple”.
He might not be the prominent leader or spokesman which Peter was but he might be the one closest to Christ. He became known as the disciple Jesus loved. He wrote the “Gospel of the Son of God” as well as three letters and the tremendous conclusion to the Bible, the Revelation.

    John first met Christ one afternoon while standing with Andrew listening to John the Baptist. He heard the words Israel had waited for, “Look, the Lamb of God”. It must have been a moment of instant faith for John. He spent the evening with Christ and gave Him the rest of his life too.

    John was the brother of James, the first apostle to be martyred. They were fishermen  from the Sea of Galilee. Apparently after their early contact with Christ, John and others returned to their fishing. Then Christ again came to them, calling them to come with Him and “catch men”.

    We sometimes don't realise the changes Christ made in John's life. He must have been by nature a man with strong feelings, even anger and a man with real ambition. Christ gave John and his brother James a surname meaning “Sons of Thunder”! It must have been obvious that these two men had spoken up several times and denounced others with very strong words. (Luke 9:51-56)

    But Christ changed John's life and turned him into the apostle of love. There is no one whose life cannot be changed by Christ if that life is yielded to Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

    A SONG TO SING: What a wonderful change in my life since Jesus came into my heart
 
    主所爱的门徒

    读经:  
    约翰福音一章35至42节

    35再次日,约翰同两个门徒站在那里。

    36他见耶稣行走,就说:“看哪,这是神的羔羊!”

    37两个门徒听见他的话,就跟从了耶稣。

    38耶稣转过身来,看见他们跟着,就问他们说:“你们要什么?”他们说:“拉比(“拉比”翻出来就是“夫子”),在哪里住?”

    39耶稣说:“你们来看。”他们就去看他在哪里住,这一天便与他同住。那时约有申正了。

    40听见约翰的话,跟从耶稣的那两个人,一个是西门彼得的兄弟安得烈。

    41他先找着自己的哥哥西门,对他说:“我们遇见弥赛亚了(“弥赛亚”翻出来就是“基督”)!”

    42于是领他去见耶稣。耶稣看着他说:“你是约翰的儿子西门(注:“约翰”马太16章17节称“约拿”),你要称为矶法(“矶法”翻出来就是“彼得”)。”
 
 
    门徒之中,有些是我们一无所知的;但经常被称为「主所爱的门徒」约翰,我们却并不陌生。
约翰未必是一位杰出的领袖,他也不像彼得那样喜欢发言;但他却可能是门徒之中,与基督最亲近的一个。大家都公认他是主所爱的门徒。约翰不单写了「神儿子的福音」,还写了三封书信,以及为圣经作结的最后一卷伟大书信启示录。

    一天下午,当约翰与安得烈一起聆听施洗约翰讲道之际,他首次遇见基督。他听见施洗约翰说出以色列人一直在等候的话:「看哪,神的羔羊!」约翰可能即时信了主。就在当天,他与基督共度了一个晚上,从此便将一生奉献给主。

    约翰是首位殉道使徒雅各的兄弟,他们是加利利海边的渔夫。约翰与其他人在初认基督之后,可能又回去捕鱼;但基督再次来到他们那里,呼召他们跟从他,叫他们「得人如得鱼」。

    我们未必察觉基督如何改变约翰的生命。按他的天性,他很可能是一个脾气刚烈、暴躁,和野心勃勃的人。基督曾经称呼约翰和他的兄弟雅各作「雷子」;从他俩曾经用激烈的言语来攻击他人便可见一斑(路九51-56)。

    然而,基督改变了约翰的生命,使他变成一位爱的使徒。任何人只要愿意将一生交给基督,就必能被基督改变(林后五17)。

    诗歌:多么奇妙的改变,自耶稣进入我心中
