对今日诗句的想法

在这封令人倍感压力的加拉太书信中,保罗以这一不可思议的提醒收尾:凡因相信主耶稣基督而称义的人,不论是犹太人还是外邦人,都是神的子民以色列。亚伯拉罕因信靠神的应许,便开始了漫长的旅程,所有以色列民也同样跟从神的带领并且靠着对主耶稣基督的信心而持守在神的应许中。正如出埃及记中那些靠着神的大能并洒逾越节羔羊的血而得救的人,神的百姓如今已被主的宝血买回并且脱离了罪与死的辖制。从此不再分犹太人或外邦人,为奴的或是自由的,男人或女人,因为我们是神的子民以色列,领受神的怜悯与平安。

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Paul ends his breathtaking letter to Galatians with this incredible reminder: both Jews and Gentiles who are justified by faith in Jesus Christ are God's people, his Israel. Like Abraham who left on a long journey trusting in God's promise, so also all who are spiritual Israel follow God's lead and cling to God's promise through faith in Jesus Christ. Like those who were delivered in the Exodus by the power of God and with the sprinkled blood of the Passover lamb, God's people today have been blood-bought and delivered from their bondage to sin and death. Here there is neither Jew nor Gentile, slave nor free, male nor female, because in Israel, we are God's people and the recipients of his mercy and his peace.

我的祷告

全能的神啊、与我们立约的主,感谢你赐给我们信心的榜样,他们都持守信心且坚信你的应许;感谢你让主耶稣成就了你的应许;感谢你祝福我,使我成为你的孩子。现在,愿我们——你的子民都赞美你,奉主耶稣基督之名,阿们!

My Prayer...

El Shaddai, LORD of the Covenant, thank you for our great Patriarchs of faith who kept the faith and trusted in your Promise. Thank you for fulfilling your Promise in Jesus. Thank you for blessing me and including me as one of your children. Now may we, your people, bring you praise, in the name of Jesus our Lord. Amen.
