彼此接纳 [Receive One Another]

书卷:罗马书(新约)
作者:保罗

罗马书15章7节:“所以你们要彼此接纳,如同基督接纳你们一样,使荣耀归于上帝。”

今日默想:彼此接纳就是你接纳我,我接纳你。凭着我们的天然本性,实在很难彼此接纳,因为我们对道理的看法、自己心里所喜悦的事,都有很大的差异,但基督耶稣的榜样,叫我们能不求自己的喜悦,能放下一切,而彼此接纳。彼此接纳表示不仅坚固的人要接纳不坚固的人,而且不坚固的人也要接纳坚固的人。照我们的光景,实在不值得基督接纳我们,但罗马书15章3节告诉我们祂却为我们受了我们该受的辱骂,甚至为我们死而复活。祂就是这样无条件的接纳了我们。我们的彼此接纳也该如同基督接纳了我们一样。罗马书14章3节告诉我们基督的接纳就是上帝的接纳。基督所接纳的,也就是上帝所接纳的。凡生的和基督所接纳的,不管信心的程度如何,也无论对道理的看法如何,以及属灵事物的作法如何,即或是彼此之间有很大的差异,都要互相接纳。信徒彼此的接纳,必须如同基督的接纳一样,才能荣耀上帝。

Book: Romans (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Romans 15:7 :“Therefore receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the glory of God.”

Today’s Meditation: Receiving one another means we accept one another. We cannot accept one another by our own natures because we all have different opinions. There are great differences of what we like. However, Christ became a model for us in order to not pursue what we like and to receive one another. Receiving one another means the strong receives the weak, and the weak receives the strong. We are not worthy for Jesus to receive us, but Romans 15:3 tells us that He bear the reproaches that are on us. He even died and resurrected for us. He accepted us unconditionally. Therefore, we need to accept one another just like the way Jesus accept us. Romans 14:3 tells us that Christ’s receiving is Father’s receiving. Christ receives what Father receives. Anyone who is born and received by Christ need to receive others, regardless how much differences there are between their faith, opinions and methodologies of spiritual matters. We need to receive one another just like the way Jesus accept us in order to bring glory to God.
