人的意志 [Our Will]

书卷:罗马书(新约)
作者:保罗

罗马书7章19节:“故此,我所愿意的善,我反不做;我所不愿意的恶,我倒去做。”

今日默想:这里所说的那一个人,是靠着自己的意志而活着。他所有的不好都是在行为里,他所有的好都是在意志里。在此上帝就是要给我们看见一件事:我们意志的能力,不能作我们生活的能力。许多的基督徒,他们生活的力量,都是在乎他的意志,都是凭着他的意志来维持着。抓住自己,是人靠着意志生活的一个大的标记。作基督徒吃饭、走路、谈话要小心。一天到晚把自己揪得顶紧,很费力。这是他自己在那里逼着自己作基督徒。凭意志的力量作基督徒,好像是要叫水往上流。这种人只有两种可能:一种是他还没有重生得着上帝的生命;另一种是已经重生有了上帝的生命,却不懂得去靠这生命而活着。

Book: Romans (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Romans 7:19 :“For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice.”

Today’s Meditation: Here it tells a person who live by his own will. All his evil are in his acts, while all his good are in his will. God wants us to understand that our own will cannot be our living ability. Many Christians live by their own will as their living ability. They cling onto themselves and their will. We need to be careful in our daily life be it when we eat, walk or speak. It is very tired to cling onto ourselves too much as we are forcing ourselves to be Christian. Being a Christian who live by his own will is like asking the water to flow upwards. This sort of people has two possibilities: whether he have yet to rebirth in Christ and receive the life of God, or have reborn but unable to live by the new life.
