福音的功效 [Effects of Gospel]

书卷:歌罗西书(新约)
作者:保罗

歌罗西书1章6节:“这福音传到你们那里,也传到普天之下,并且结果、增长,如同在你们中间,自从你们听见福音,真知道上帝恩惠的日子一样。”

今日默想:福音不是某些特别有慧根的人的专利品,乃是普天之下的人所共有的。这话表明了福音的普世性和可靠性。福音里面有生命,所以它能结果、增长。只有用生命的见证所传的福音,才能发挥结果增长的效果。信道是从听道来的;听道是从基督的话来的。福音有的两个特性:普世性和个人性;两者必须维持均衡。信徒若偏重福音的普世性,便可能在真理和个人生命的追求上迁就、通容、妥协、不认真;相反地,若偏重福音的个人性,便可能在工作和生活上变成孤独、寂寞、消极、灰心。

Book: Colossians (New Testamane)
Author: Paul

Colossians 1:6 :“which has come to you, as it has also in all the world, and is bringing forth fruit, as it is also among you since the day you heard and knew the grace of God in truth;”

Today’s Meditation: Gospel does not belong to some wise people, but is shared by all the world. This tells the gospel’s universality and reliability. There is life in gospel, so it can bring fruit and grow. Only when we spread gospel using the witnesses of our life, the effect of growing can be exerted. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Gospel has two characteristics: universality and personal. Two of these must be kept in balance. If we emphasise more on universality, we might end up compromising and not being serious on the pursue of our personal life. In the same way, if we emphasise more on personal, we might end up being alone and negative on our work and life.
