上帝的旨意 [The Will of God]

书卷:罗马书(新约)
作者:保罗

罗马书8章29节:“因为祂预先所知道的人,就预先定下效法祂儿子的模样,使祂儿子在许多弟兄中作长子。”

今日默想:基督救恩的最高峰,就我们而论,是从心灵因义而活,达到必死的身体又活过来,也就是我们的身体得赎。全人从里到外,从灵到体,都被模成上帝儿子的形像。就上帝而论,祂借着长子(耶稣基督)得着了众子(我们),合成一个儿子群。透过扩大的儿子和丰满的儿子,上帝的本性一切的丰盛得到最完满的彰显。这就是上帝最终的心意。上帝先摆出荣耀的基督作模型,然后又以基督为中心赐给万有为我们效力,要把我们模成基督的形状。同时上帝又以基督作我们爱的保障,保守我们在万有的模成中,能够得胜有余,而达成上帝在我们身上完美的心意。

Book: Romans (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Romans 8:29 :“For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.”

Today’s Meditation: In our humane opinion, the climax of Christ’s salvation is at the living of our soul through righteousness, then resurrect from the mortal body so that our body are redeemed. Through this, our body and soul are shaped into the image of God’s Son. In God’s opinion, He gathered a group of sons (us) through His firstborn (Jesus Christ) and utilised both His firstborn and our presence to fully reveal Himself. This is the ultimate will of God. God first used the glorious Christ as a model, then give us all things with Christ as the center. He meant to shape us into the image of Christ. At the same time, God guarantees our life with Christ and gives us all the necessary while we are being shaped. This ultimately leads to the perfection of His will.
