你聽從誰的話?

讀經:   

羅馬書八章1至4節

1如今,那些在基督耶穌裡的就不定罪了。

2因為賜生命聖靈的律在基督耶穌裡釋放了我,使我脫離罪和死的律了。

3律法既因肉體軟弱,有所不能行的,神就差遣自己的兒子成為罪身的形狀,作了贖罪祭,在肉體中定了罪案,

4使律法的義成就在我們這不隨從肉體,只隨從聖靈的人身上。

羅馬書八章1節要算是新約之中,對基督徒來說非常重要的一節經文。請你再讀一遍。

你是否發覺,你經常聽見兩種聲音對你說話?其中一個聲音來自聖靈,另一個聲音則來自我們的敵人撒但。我們怎樣判別兩者呢?

撒但的聲音往往會說出一些定罪或試探的話,例如:「你是一個失敗的基督徒。看看你今天做了些甚麼!」撒但會設法叫我們只看自己、自己的軟弱錯失,又或是引誘我們犯罪。

然而,今天的經文告訴我們,我們不再被定罪了。當聖靈向我們說話,祂不會說一些令我們灰心喪志的話。聖靈可能會直接指出我們的罪,卻絕不會像我們的敵人那樣,說一些摧毀性的話。

聖靈可能會說:「是的,你犯了罪,但耶穌已為你受死,祂的血已塗抹你的罪。」兩者豈不是大有分別嗎?聖靈希望引領我們去認罪,再修復我們與基督的關係,卻絕不會定我們的罪。

將來,當我們回到天家,神也不會定我們的罪。神只會用祂的慈愛來歡迎我們,並檢視我們有否為主忠心作工。那是多麼榮耀的日子!但此刻我們仍然活在地上,就得緊記我們該聽從誰的聲音。我們要用心緊記本章的第1節:「就不定罪了……」

牢記的經文:「你們必曉得真理,真理必叫你們得以自由。」(約八32)

WHO DO YOU LISTEN TO?
Day 16


Bible Reading:   

Romans 8: 1-4

1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus,[a] who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.

3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh,

4 that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

The first verse of this chapter is one of the greatest verses for a Christian in the New Testament. Would you read it again please?

Do you realize there are two voices constantly speaking to us, Christians? There is the voice of the Holy Spirit and that of our enemy, Satan. How can we tell the difference?

The voice of Satan will always be words of condemnation or temptation such as, “You are a failure as a Christian. Look at what you did today.” Satan will try to make us look only at ourselves, our failures, or it will try to tempt us to go on in sin.

But our verse tells us we are no longer under condemnation. When the Spirit of God speaks to us, it will not be a voice of discouragement. It may be a specific word of conviction but never sweeping statements made by our enemy.

The Holy Spirit may say, “Yes, you did sin but Jesus died for you and He has covered your sin.” Isn't that different? The Holy Spirit wants to lead us to a place of confession and restoration of fellowship with Christ, but He will never condemn.

Then when we get home to heaven, there will be no condemnation. There will be an examination of what service we have done for Christ here and only a loving and glorious welcome. That will be a wonderful day! But while we are here on earth, we need to remember which voice we are to listen to. Learn that first verse by heart. “There is no condemnation.....”

A VERSE TO REMEMBER: “Know the truth and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)
