心灵的新样 [Newness of the Spirit]

书卷:罗马书(新约)
作者:保罗

罗马书7章6节:“但我们既然在捆我们的律法上死了,现今就脱离了律法,叫我们服侍主,要按着心灵的新样,不按着仪文的旧样。”

今日默想:一个信主的人与基督联合,律法和罪就不再约束我们,因为基督的死已救我们脱离了它的威胁和压力,我们不再受律法的字句所捆绑。我们既然已经藉死脱离了律法,就不要再受律法的捆绑与管辖,而去服从那不可拿、不可尝、不可摸等类的规条。加拉太书5章25节提醒我们既靠圣灵得生,就当靠圣灵行事。从律法中释放出来是有一种积极的意义,就是叫我们有服事主的态度,并且是以心灵的新样,一个为主而活和被圣灵管治的生命形态,来服事主。今天,我们服事主,不是凭着字句,乃是凭着灵;不是照属肉体的条例,乃是照无穷之生命的大能。我们不在乎外面的仪文,乃在乎里面的灵。信徒必须活在灵的新样里。陈旧的灵不能感动人,所发出的言语、教训、态度、思想皆旧,老套、刻板、迟钝,活泼生命流不出。新鲜的灵才能苏醒人,把人带到上帝面前。

Book: Romans (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Romans 7:6 :“But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.”

Today’s Meditation: One who believed in Jesus Christ and united with Him will no longer be bound by law and sins, for Jesus Christ’s death saved us from their threats and pressure so that we no longer are held by the words of law. As we are no longer bound by law through death, we are not entangled again to touch, taste, and handle those we should not. Galatians 5:25 reminds us to live and walk with the Spirit. As we are saved from the law, we will have the attitude needed to serve in the newness of the Spirit. Through this, we serve the Lord with the new life form that lives for the Lord and governed by the Spirit. Today, we serve the Lord not by words but by Spirit. We serve not according to the law of a fleshly commandment, but according to the power of an endless life. We no longer care about the letter but the Spirit inside. We should all live in the newness of the Spirit. Oldness cannot affect people with its old-fashion, inflexibility, and obtuse. Only the newness of the Spirit can wake people up and bring them to the Lord.
