与蒙召的恩相称 [Walk Worthy of the Calling]

书卷:以弗所书(新约)
作者:保罗

以弗所书4章1节:“我为主被囚的劝你们:既然蒙召,行事为人就当与蒙召的恩相称。“

今日默想:上帝呼召我们,并不是要我们离世而生活,乃是要我们在世界中过一种照着祂恩召的目的而“行事为人”的生活。本节的含义是:上帝的恩典需要藉基督徒的生活行事将它表明出来。基督教与别的宗教不同。其不同点乃在于,别的宗教只有要求,却没有供应;基督教不只有供应,并且乃是供应在先,要求在后。保罗在此是要求我们把所得着的“恩”活出来。信徒若不显明相称的生活,就表示亏欠了上帝呼召的恩。人不能凭行为得救,但是得救的人,绝对要有符合被召标准的好行为。

Book: Ephesians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Ephesians 4:1 :“I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called,”

Today’s Meditation: We were called by God to live on this world with the purpose of living out His grace. This verse tells that the grace of God can be revealed through the life of fellow Christians. Christianity is different than other religions. The others only ask without giving, while Christianity gives before asking. Paul is urging us to live out the grace through this verse. We will fall short of the calling of God if we do not walk worthy of the calling with which we were called. We cannot be saved by our acts, but one who is saved needs to have a set of standardised good acts.
