所受的灵 [The Spirit Received]

书卷:罗马书(新约)
作者:保罗

罗马书8章15节:“你们所受的不是奴仆的心,仍旧害怕;所受的乃是儿子的心,因此我们呼叫:阿爸,父!”

今日默想:我们所得到永远的生命,乃是上帝儿子的生命。因此,我们和上帝有一种最亲密的父子关系。每当我们呼喊上帝为阿爸父时,我们心里感到的荣耀、甜美,真是无法形容。人有了上帝的生命,就不只对于罪的方面有感觉,并且这一个生命对于上帝的自己也有认识。认识上帝是父,乃是这生命的感觉。人若只有道理的明白,而没有碰着过上帝,他就怕上帝。他摸不着上帝,他不会觉得上帝的亲近,他没有上帝的儿女的感觉。他口里虽能说天上的父,但是里面没有那个感觉。我们所领受的是上帝儿子的灵。换句话说,我们所领受的灵,就是在主耶稣受洗时,以大能降临在祂身上的灵,又在旷野带领祂,供应祂行异能的力量,使祂一切生活与事奉都充满能力。

Book: Romans (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Romans 8:15 :“For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, Abba, Father.”

Today’s Meditation: The eternal life we received is the life of God’s children. From there onwards, we have the closest father-and-son relationship with God. The glorious and pleasant feeling we felt every time we call upon God our Abba Father is certainly indescribable. Once we have the life of God, we not only are sensitive towards sins, but also started to know God. This is the feeling we felt when we know God is the Father. We may be afraid of God if we just equip ourselves with knowledge without experiencing Him. We will not have the feeling of being God’s children if we do not get intimate with God. As a result, we only physically admit God is our Father without the feeling. We receive the Spirit of God’s children. That Spirit, is the exact same Spirit that entered Lord Jesus Christ during His baptism; the exact same spirit that led Him in the wilderness; the exact same spirit that gave Him power to do miracle works; and the exact same spirit that empowered His life and His ministry.
