悔改则不灭亡 [Repent and Saved]

书卷:路加福音(新约)
作者:路加

路加福音13章3节:“我告诉你们,不是的。你们若不悔改,都要如此灭亡!”

今日默想:经文后半段含有创世记6章56节的意思;灾难的临到虽然无关各人罪恶的轻重,却又与人类全体的罪恶有关;所以它提醒我们,若不悔改,都要如此灭亡。“悔改”在原文并不含行动的意思,而是指在思想、看法上有所改变;人的心思本来是远离上帝、背向上帝,如今整个转变过来归向上帝。“灭亡”不只是指身体将要死亡,并且是指死后灵魂将要受到永远的痛苦。人在上帝面前最大的罪,乃是心中背逆、不顺服上帝;这也就是我们在悔改时所要认的罪。人一切的罪都是出于背叛上帝。所有的人都是罪人,都必须悔改,否则也要面临可怕的结局。

Book: Luke (New Testament)
Author: Luke

Luke 13:3 :“I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”

Today’s Meditation: The back part of the verse contains the wisdom of Genesis 6:5~6. Although the arrival of calamity is not related with the severity of sins, it has direct connection with human’s sins. We shall perish if we do not repent. Repent is defined as the changes of thought to come closer to God. Perish is not only defined as the death of physical body but also the eternal pain of soul after death. The biggest sin of one in front of God is disobedience towards God. This is the sin we have to repent as every inch of our sins comes from disobedience. All of us are sinners and we have to repent to avoid perish.
