对今日诗句的想法

我们生活在权力至上的时代和文化中。“这是我的权力做____”,任意填空。然而我们并没有权力成为神的儿女。神因着恩典赐予我们做他儿女的权力——神为此付出了巨大的代价。主耶稣来到世间,生活、死去并且从死里复活。我们通过信心领受了这份恩典:当我们信靠耶稣为主,并且受洗靠着圣灵的大能重生时,神赐予我们新的生命(约翰福音3:3-7;提多书3:3-7)。从神生的,从上面生的,“重”生是神的恩赐——我们蒙神接纳进入神的家庭,使我们拥有作为神后嗣的一切权力(加拉太书3:26-4:7)。因此,千万不可轻忽了这份恩典、祝福、接纳和权力!现在,我们是神的儿女(约翰一书3:1-3)。让我们为这份恩典而献上感恩,并且活出作为神儿女应有的样式。

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

We live in a time and culture of rights. "It's my right to ___." Just fill in the blank. But we don't have a right to be God's child. We are given that right by God's grace. This right came to us at great cost to God. Jesus' came to earth, lived, died and was raised from the dead. We receive this grace through faith: God gives us new birth as we trust in Jesus as Lord and we are baptized and reborn through the power of the Holy Spirit (John 3:3-7; Titus 3:3-7). To be born of God, to be born from above, to be born "again" is the gift of adoption into God's family and brings us all the rights of heirs in God's house (Galatians 3:26-29; Galatians 4:1-7). So let's not take this grace, this blessing, this adoption, this right for granted! We are God's children right now (1 John 3:1-3). Let's give thanks for this grace and live like we belong.

我的祷告

阿爸天父啊,感谢你使我成为你大家庭中的一员。愿我的生命展现你的影响、品格、怜悯、圣洁、恩慈、公义和爱。天父啊,我愿成为你的样式。因此,正如我是因着圣灵得以重生进入你的家,愿你的圣灵充满我,使我能够在一切言行中更清晰地展现你的形象。奉长兄主耶稣之名祈求,阿们!

My Prayer...

Abba Father, thank you for including me in your family. May my life reflect your influence, character, mercy, holiness, compassion, righteousness, and love. I want to be like you, my Father. So just as I was born into your family by the power of the Holy Spirit, please fill me with your Spirit so that I will more closely reflect you in all I do and say this day. In the name of my older brother Jesus I pray. Amen.
