确知自己已得着救恩

粤语 国语

第21天


读经:   

约翰壹书五章7至13节

7并且有圣灵作见证,因为圣灵就是真理。

8作见证的原来有三:就是圣灵、水,与血,这三样也都归于一。

9我们既领受人的见证,神的见证更该领受了(该领受:原文作大),因神的见证是为他儿子作的。

10信神儿子的,就有这见证在他心里;不信神的,就是将神当作说谎的,因不信神为他儿子作的见证。

11这见证就是神赐给我们永生;这永生也是在他儿子里面。

12人有了神的儿子就有生命,没有神的儿子就没有生命。

13我将这些话写给你们信奉神儿子之名的人,要叫你们知道自己有永生。

基督徒能否确切知道自己已蒙神赦罪?确切知道自己是神的儿女,必有一天能亲自面见基督?抑或,我们最好还是有所保留,只能表示「我极之希望自己已蒙神赦罪;我极之盼望将来可以上天堂见主。」

未能确知自己得着救恩的人,很难要他事奉或见证基督。而且,他的灵命也会停滞不前,以致令他在许多方面错失了神对他儿女的心意。

其实,只要我们接受神赐给我们的见证,我们就能确知自己已得着救恩。请读经文的五章10节。而且,圣灵也会见证我们已经重生。你若成了神的儿女,圣灵就会教导你认识新生活的大原则。他还会提醒你不要做某些事情,以免有违你是神儿女的身分和妨碍你的见证。

此外,我们亦因着相信神的话语而得着确据。请看第13节。我们不是等待将来获得永生,这节经文告诉我们,我们如今已拥有永生。你只要相信神的话语,就可以确知自己已属于耶稣基督。

若要证明你在何时何地出生,你会拿出什么证据?当然是出生证明书。同样地,在我们重生的那一刻,神的话语就是我们的出生证明书。这里的13节,就是其中一节证明我们身份的重要经文;我们必须将它藏在心里,每当撒但质疑我们是否得救的时候,就拿着它来击退撒但。

祷告:

主啊,感谢你赐下你的话语,使我有得救的确据。

BEING SURE OF OUR SALVATION
Day 21


Bible Reading:   

1 John 5:7-13

7 For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.

8 And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one.

9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is the witness of God which He has testified of His Son.

10 He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son.

11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.

12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.

13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.

BEING SURE OF OUR SALVATION

Is it possible for anyone who is a Christian to be absolutely sure that his sins are forgiven? That he is a child of God and that one day he will see Jesus Christ face to face? Wouldn't it be better to say 'Well I hope that my sins are forgiven. I hope I will go to heaven.'

When a person is not sure of his salvation he is not able to serve Christ or to witness for him as he should. His spiritual growth will be stunted and in many ways he will miss out on what God has planned for his children.

We can be sure of our salvation by accepting the witness that God has given. Look at verse 10 of our reading. The Holy Spirit also witnesses to us that we have been born again. If you are a child of God, he tells you and instructs you in the principles of your new life. He also tells you what you cannot do now that you are a Christian and in that way witnesses to you that you are a child of God.

Assurance also comes from believing the Word of God. Look at verse 13. We are not waiting for eternal life-this verse tells us that we have it now. You can have assurance today that you belong to Jesus Christ if you will simply believe the Word of God.

What proof do you have of where and when you were born? The answer is a birth certificate. Let the Word of God be your spiritual birth certificate. Take hold of a verse like this thirteenth verse. Learn it by heart. Use it when Satan comes to you with his doubts as to whether you are saved or not. Repeat the verse or turn to it and read it again. It will give you assurance as you believe the Word of God for yourself.

A PRAYER:

Lord I thank you for the certainty of your Word to my heart.
