信心和无愧的良心 [Faith and Good Conscience]

书卷:提摩太前书(新约)
作者:保罗

提摩太前书1章19节:“常存信心和无愧的良心;有人丢弃良心,就在真道上如同船破坏了一般。”

今日默想:信心和无亏的良心是打属灵的仗所不可或缺的装备。两者息息相关:坚强的信心能帮助良心的敏锐程度,无亏的良心能帮助持守信心。基督徒在世上行事为人,如同船只航行在海上,有赖信心和无亏良心的保护。不然基督徒的信仰就会漏掉,结果便与世人无异。基督徒的信仰,与我们的道德行为是不可分割的:虽然我们的得救不是因着行为,但得救之后的往前和属灵光景,却与行为大有关系。基督徒一沾染罪恶,良心的作用就不正常,信心也就不能刚强。另一方面,发挥良好且正常功用的良心,能帮助我们对付罪恶,又能使信心刚强,打那美好的仗。

Book: 1 Timothy (New Testament)
Author: Paul

1 Timothy 1:19 :“having faith and a good conscience, which some having rejected, concerning the faith have suffered shipwreck,”

Today’s Meditation: Faith and good conscience are both necessary equipments to fight the spiritual war. Both are closely related that strong faith improves the sensitiveness of good conscience while good conscience helps us to hold onto faith. Our behaviour on earth is like a ship sailing on the sea. Such ship relies on faith and good conscience as protection. Without these, our faith will be missing and we are nothing different than normal people. Our faith and our moral acts cannot be separated. We are saved not because of acts, but our acts are closely related to our salvation after we are saved. Our conscience will not be working properly once we are in contact with sins. As a result, our faith will be weakened. On the other side, properly-exerted conscience helps us to defeat sins and thus strengthening our faith to fight the spiritual war.
