得救 [Being Saved]

书卷:彼得前书(新约)
作者:彼得

彼得前书4章18节:“若是义人仅仅得救,那不虔敬和犯罪的人将有何地可站呢?”

今日默想:罗马书8章33节,我们基督徒在上帝面前都是义人;但照彼得前书4章19节,我们必须一心为善、过圣洁的生活,才算是名副其实的义人。灵的得救容易,魂的得救困难;得永生容易,得奖赏困难;客观的称义容易,主观的称义困难;因信称义容易,因行为称义困难。基督徒的门是难进的,路是难行的在世为人生活是有许多苦难的。基督徒是先受苦,后享福;世人是先享福,后受苦。前者受苦不多,享福却无穷;后者享福不多,受苦却无尽。

Book: 1 Peter (New Testament)
Author: Peter

1 Peter 4:18 :“Now ‘If the righteous one is scarcely saved, where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?'”

Today’s Meditation: With respect to Romans 8:33, we are justified by God; while with respect to 1 Peter 4:19, we need to commit our souls to God in doing good in our life in order to be justified. The salvation of spirit is easy, but the salvation of soul is difficult; obtaining eternity is easy, but getting rewarded is difficult; being justified on surface is easy, but truly getting justified is difficult; being saved by faith is easy, but being saved by acts is difficult. The gate of Christians is narrow with difficult way, and we must go through many tribulations in this world. Christians enjoy later by suffering first; while earthly people enjoy now and suffer later. The former suffers little and enjoy for eternity while the latter enjoys little and suffer perpetually.
