上帝的应许 [Promise of God]

书卷:耶利米书(旧约)
作者:耶利米

耶利米书24章6节:“我要眷顾他们,使他们得好处,领他们归回这地。我也要建立他们,必不拆毁;栽植他们,并不拔出。”

今日默想:此节里上帝鼓励和安慰祂的子民,应许七十年结束的时候,祂会眷顾他们,并使他们得好处。巴比伦的犹太人从被掳之地回归的时候,其物质和经济状况要比奴隶或囚犯好。正是由于这种令人满意的状况,许多被掳的犹太人在有机会的时候也没有回到自己的故乡。但是上帝真正的善意是让被掳的人重返巴勒斯坦,完全恢复圣约的特权。

Book: Jeremiah (Old Testament)
Author: Jeremiah

Jeremiah 24:6 :“For I will set My eyes on them for good, and I will bring them back to this land; I will build them and not pull them down, and I will plant them and not pluck them up.”

Today’s Meditation: In this verse, God encouraged and consoled His people that He will set His eyes on them for good. When the Jews of Babylon returned from where they were captivated, their economical situations were better than slaves or prisoners. Many did not return to their homeland when they had the chance due to this satisfying situations. However, God actually wanted them to return to Palestine and recover the privileges of covenant.
