信与恩典 [Faith and Grace]

书卷:罗马书(新约)
作者:保罗

罗马书5章2节:“我们又藉着祂,因信得进入现在所站的这恩典中,并且欢欢喜喜盼望上帝的荣耀。”

今日默想:“因信”与“藉着祂”表明上帝和人之间的合作。“因信”说出人的责任,“藉着祂”说出上帝的工作。倘若人不尽责信靠,就不能期望上帝无端地作工。“进入”是入门,是开端;“站”则是持守,是继续。我们不但因信进入上帝国的门,也因信继续站在恩典中。基督是我们信徒的新地位,基督也是我们的恩典。我们是在基督里得以进入并站在恩典中,享受上帝一切的恩典。基督的死,引领我们得以进入上帝的恩典中;基督的生,持守我们得以站稳在上帝的恩典中。我们的生命,原来因为远离上帝,而活在风浪四作、无助又无望的情景中。但如今因着耶稣基督,我们能进到万王之王的面前,也能进入上帝恩典的避难所。

Book: Romans (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Romans 5:2 :“through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

Today’s Meditation: Both ‘by faith’ and ‘through whom’ show the cooperation between God and human. ‘by faith’ tells the responsibilities of human, while ‘through whom’ tells the job of God. If we do not do our best to rely on God, we cannot expect God to do things. ‘have access’ means an entrance and start while ‘stands’ means a continuation and holding onto the faith. We not only have access by faith into the gate of God’s kingdom, but also continue to stand in the grace and enjoy every bit of it. The death of Christ leads us to the grace of God, and the living of Christ leads us to hold onto the grace of God. Our sinful life makes us live in a helpless situation like a boat on a stormy sea. However in the current days, through Christ we all can approach to the King of the kings and all the grace He provides.
