大喜乐 [Great Joy]

书卷:彼得前书(新约)
作者:彼得

彼得前书1章8节:“你们虽然没有见过祂,却是爱祂。如今虽不得看见,却因信祂就有说不出来、满有荣光的大喜乐,”

今日默想:信心是我们属灵的眼睛,使我们藉以看见那肉眼所不能看见的主,因此与祂亲密相交,并且爱祂。加拉太书5章6节提醒我们,惟独使人生发仁爱的信心,才有功效。因信而爱,非因眼见而爱,这种爱必蒙上帝悦纳。信心是我们在百般的试炼中,仍有大喜乐的原因。信徒的享受,就在于此。基督徒能否喜乐,并不取决于地上环境的顺逆,而是因那位已经复活并被升为至高、如今在上帝右边的基督。没有人可以夺去圣徒的喜乐,正如没有人可以将基督从荣耀的宝座上拉下来一样。

Book: 1 Peter (New Testament)
Author: Peter

1 Peter 1:8 :“whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory,”

Today’s Meditation: Faith is our spiritual eyes that allows us to see the Lord that cannot be seen by naked eyes and have chance to be intimate and love Him. Galatians 5:6 reminds us that faith works through love. We are blessed because we love due to faith, but not due to what we see. Faith is the reason we rejoice in trials. We enjoy the joy in trials. It is not up to the environment to let us rejoice, but the Lord who has risen and now sits on the right of God. No one can take away our joy, just as no one can take away the glory of Christ from the throne.
