聖誕節到了,基督徒藝人周慧敏在社交網絡向歌迷朋友致以節日的問候,同時在這普世歡騰日子為基督信仰作見證,分享她信耶穌以及重生的經歷,由衷期待大家感受到主愛,获平安與喜樂。

周慧敏表示成為基督徒後,聖誕節對她的意義就不同了,「聖誕再不是關於聖誕老人、聖誕禮物、或聖誕狂歡派對的節日,而是紀念著耶穌基督的愛而普世歡騰的日子。」她說。

聖誕節當天,周慧敏也提醒自己主賜給她的恩典,讓她時刻都感受到被愛與能愛的幸福。因此,她在這特別的日子有感動向廣大歌迷朋友分享她的信仰見證。


作為演藝圈常青樹的周慧敏為何要信耶穌?她有哪些重生的體驗?她的生命都經歷怎樣的轉變?信主後又如何靠主恩典勝過試煉、邁向屬靈成長?周慧敏用注入真摯情感的優美文字娓娓道來。

她回憶記決志當晚的感受說,「我決心棄掉家裡一切與拜偶像有關的物件,禱告承認自己的罪,接受耶穌基督的救贖,感受到前所未有的輕鬆、平安,與寧靜。」

對於2010年的洗禮,周慧敏見證說:「我的舊我就如跟著基督死去般浸進水裡去。我從水裡起來那刻,我就如跟隨著基督復活,成為新造的人。」

「如果不是神的安排,很難想像在我尋找祂的道路上,能走得這般通暢無阻。回想這段路,其實神的使者早已陸續在我的生活裡出現,為我的信作預備,保守我的心直到受浸。」她說。

以下是周慧敏親筆撰寫的信仰見證(中英文版)

2013聖誕快樂

Dear all

我從Connecticut平安到港了。

成為基督徒後,聖誕節對我的意義不一樣了。聖誕再不是關於聖誕老人、聖誕禮物、或聖誕狂歡派對的節日,聖誕是紀念著耶穌基督的愛而普世歡騰的日子。這天,提醒我祂賜給我們的恩典,讓我時刻都感受到被愛與能愛的幸福。所以,這個聖誕,我希望向您們表達愛和思念的同時,也藉著這個特別的日子為我的信仰作見證。

其實,訓練了自己40多年建立而來的一套信念,理應根深蒂固,能讓我心甘情願地放下這套建立已久的信念,由零開始,真的不可思議,神的力量遠遠超乎人能想像的。

未信主前,我曾經視個人修為作生活一大指標。因為自信,我認為依靠他人或宗教是軟弱的行為,所以,並不理解和輕視聖經強調因信才能得救的重要性。一天,我與朋友偶然談起宗教,意識到基督教以外的宗教大都強調自我修為的重要,然而,那套準則,幾乎是凡人不可能達到的。再者,我想到若聖經所說的屬實,那麼因我沒有信主,未接受基督的救贖,我即使在個人修為上到達到甚麼境界,都是沒有資格進天堂的罪人。相反,就算聖經所說的不實,我即使成為基督徒,其實都沒半點捐失,因為我不會在個人修為上退步。想到這裡,我決意用開放心認識基督教,了解聖經所強調的信,生命就這樣逆轉。

記得第一次到教會,適逢2009年的復活節崇拜,那天我的心情異常激動,我抖震的聲音無法唱出半句聖詩,但我在心裡,卻重覆地向神說著一句話:「天父,我回家了!」

初信主的那段日子,特別需要私人空間,好讓自己專注尋求神,免於因瑣事分心。但因為我是公眾人物,這個要求談何容易,我無法控制人,只能憑信心祈求神。一年下來,我與丈夫到教會崇拜,與教友查經,一切與尋求神有關的事宜,都被聖靈保護著,進行得很順利。記得決志當晚,我決心棄掉家裡一切與拜偶像有關的物件,禱告承認自己的罪,接受耶穌基督的救贖,感受到前所未有的輕鬆、平安,與寧靜。

聖經讓我明白得救不是靠自身修煉,而是靠基督的救贖,無人能夠憑行為自誇。就是因為世上沒有完美的人,世人就無需把個人修為的高低定位,因為永遠高處未算高。當我放下剛硬的心看清自己的罪,我喜見自己逐步放下了舊我,放下了盲目靠個人力量的一套自信,放下呈強的擔子。摒棄了成年人的外殼,讓我從孩提階段再生,而建立起對人對事的謙讓。越是懂得把自身的不足放大,把自滿縮小,我發覺自己更有勇氣包容憐惜人的軟弱。信仰令我的價值觀改變了很多。現在,我不會執著世界的眼光,更不時提醒自己不以自己的準則要求或論斷別人。就是因為信念明確,自己就更有能力去取捨和追求,尋到真正喜樂的根源,和那份靠個人力量無法相比的強大信心。

如果不是神的安排,很難想像在我尋找祂的道路上,能走得這般通暢無阻。回想這段路,其實神的使者早已陸續在我的生活裡出現,為我的信作預備,保守我的心直到受浸。隨著2010年浸禮的進行,我的舊我就如跟著基督死去般浸進水裡去。我從水裡起來那刻,我就如跟隨著基督復活,成為新造的人。哥林多後書5章17節記著說:「若有人在基督裡,他就是新造的人,舊事已過,都變成新的了。」

受浸後,我經歷了一次又一次的試煉;藉著這些試煉,我學會信靠和順服神,而得以在靈裡成長,以神喜悅的方式生活。今後,因著信,我已得著平安的心,欣然面對未來的考驗,走在光明與愛的道路中,盼望基督再來。我感謝神讓我看清自身的不足,給我謙卑的心去繼續尋求,好好愛神,愛人,愛自己。

2014年,是我踏進演藝界的第28個年頭。這些年來,與大家建立了的一份友誼,相信是我回顧演藝生涯裡得著最珍貴的禮物。過去,我接收了很多愛,今天我可以藉著同樣的藝人身份和崗位透過工作回報支持者,是我最大的福氣。感謝神讓我們相遇,以愛互動。2013的聖誕,無論您們身在高處或低處,願您們都能感受到祂給我們的愛,而得著那份平安與喜樂!

親愛的,聖誕快樂!God Bless!

Love

2013 Merry Christmas

Dear all

I have come back to Hong Kong from Connecticut, safe and sound.

Christmas has a new meaning to me after I have become a Christian. The festival, no longer about Santa Claus, Christmas present or rave party – it is now a time to celebrate the love of Jesus Christ and the joy to the world. This day reminds me of the grace given by God, I feel so blessed that I am able to love and be loved. At this Christmas, when I am telling you how much I love and miss you, I would like to take this special opportunity to witness for Christ.

Honestly, I have trained myself to follow my own rules for more than 40 years. These principals are supposed to have deep-rooted in my mind. But I have changed, I am willing to let go my long-established self-belief and rebuild a new me. God’s power, far beyond our imagination, is truly amazing.

Prior to my believing in God, I regarded personal development as an ultimate goal in my life. I was always self-confident, regarding the dependence on others or relying on religion is a kind of weakness. You can imagine - it was reasonable that I didn’t understand and even look down on what is emphasized in the Bible – salvation only comes from faith in God. One day, my friends occasionally chatted with me about religion, I then realized that the other religions (other than Christianity) stress on the importance of self-development. But the standards set by them are almost impossible to accomplish. Then I thought more about it - if what the Bible tells us is true, I would consider myself not yet qualified to believe in God - because I have not obtained salvation from Jesus Christ, that means no matter how well I have developed myself, I am still a sinner, still not eligible to get into the gate of heaven.
But, how about the Bible is wrong? I won’t lose anything even if I decide to be a Christian – I am still the same person and my personal quality will not be affected. I decided to open my heart to learn about Christianity, to understand the faith emphasized in the Bible. My life has been changed since then.

I remember it was the 2009 Easter Service, the first time I went to church. I was extremely excited and I couldn’t sing the hymn at all with my trembling voice. But in my heart, I kept praying to God: “Father, I am home! I am home!”

In my early stage of becoming a Christian, I tried to minimize distractions from trivial issues and spare more room for myself to focus on seeking God’s mercy. But being a public figure, it is not easy to have a lot of privacy, I couldn’t do anything but only pray to God for help. For the whole year I felt very blessed by the Holy Spirit, everything relating to my seeking of God went on smoothly, such as going to church with my husband and gathering with fellow Christians for bible study groups. On the night when I made a commitment to follow Jesus, I decided to clear away everything at home that is in relationship to false idol worshipping. Then I prayed to God and confess my sins, and received salvation from Jesus Christ. Immediately, I felt so relaxed, peaceful and calm, I have never felt as easy.

The Bible teaches me a lesson – salvation comes from Jesus and not self-development, nobody can boast about themselves a well developed person. In fact, no one is perfect and there is no need to judge the level of self-development. After I have let go of my stubborn mind and seen my own sin, I am happy to see that I have gradually left my old self behind and no longer solely depend on my own confidence or strength. I don’t have to gear up and show my strong sides anymore, I am free from the hardship. Abandoning the adult self, I am reborn as a kid and I have more courage to accept the weakness of human. My value changes after I am in God - no longer persistent to man’s value. And I always remind myself not to judge others with my own criteria. Now I have a clear direction towards seeking God, I am more powerful to let go and seek for the ultimate source of joy, as well as the great faith which self-strength can never compare to.

I cannot imagine without God’s mercy, how can I walk so well on the path leading to Him? But when I look back, God’s messengers have gradually come into my life and prepared me for my change, as well as preserving my heart till my baptism. At my 2010 baptism ceremony, the ‘old me’ died, just like Jesus Christ immersed into water after his death. At the moment I was raised from water, I was reborn just as Jesus’ resurrection and became a new person. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” 2 Corinthians 5:17.

I have experienced tests again and again after being baptized. But I learn to depend on God and be obedient to Him through these opportunities. I grow with the blessing of the Holy Spirit and live in a way pleasing God. I now have a peaceful mind and I am contented to face the coming challenges, walking on the path of light and love and wait for Jesus to come again. I am really thankful to God for guiding me and grant me a humble mind to seek for Him, to love God, love everyone and myself.

The coming year 2014 is my 28th year being an artist. I am very happy that we have built friendship and stayed close, this is the most treasured gift in my career. In the past I received a lot of love from you, today I am glad that I am able to return my love as an artist, this is a real blessing. Thank God for letting us gather together and interact with love. At 2013 Christmas, no matter you are struggling or enjoying life, I hope that you can feel the love, peace and joy from Him!

My dear, Merry Christmas! God Bless!

Love
