《今日靈修默想》:「祂便救了我們,並不是因我們自己所行的義,乃是照祂的憐憫,藉著重生的洗和聖靈的更新。」(多3:5)

默想一:主耶穌為什麼拯救我們?是我們為祂做了什麼嗎?不是!是因為我們可愛嗎?不是!不是因我們有什麼好,乃是因祂的憐憫及豐富的恩典(弗2:8-9)。從客觀的真理而言,若有人在基督裏,他就是新造的人(林後5:17)。救恩是神的賜與,沒有人能靠自己的行為賺取救恩。但從主觀的經歷而言,我們信了主,就要順從聖靈的引導,藉著祂持續地在我們的生命中作更新的工作。

默想二: 基督徒身處世界,但怎麼又不屬這世界?我們是天國的子民,我們的身分不屬於這個世界。雖然我們不屬於世界,我們卻不是消極的出世者,而是積極的入世者;我們不是逃避這世界,而是要面對這世界。基督徒的使命不是要改進這世界,而是領人從世界得救出來。我們在世上有很尊貴的身分,並身負重大的使命,就是榮耀神,為主見證,傳福音領人歸主。

禱告:天父上帝,感謝袮豐富的憐憫。我的蒙恩根本就沒什麼可誇。求袮幫助我,讓我存感恩的心,我願善用袮賜給我的光陰,敬虔度日,珍惜每日的生活來見證袮的偉大、傳揚袮的救恩、榮耀袮的聖名。奉耶穌基督寶貴的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.” (Tit 3:5)     

Meditation one: Why did the Lord Jesus save us? Is it because we have done something for Him? No! Is it because we are lovable? No! It is not because we are any better, but because of His mercy and the riches of the grace (Eph. 2:8-9). From an objective perspective of the truth, if someone is in Christ, he is a new creation (2Co 5:17). Salvation is God’s gift, and no one can earn salvation by his own deeds. But through the subjective experience, after we believe in the Lord, we then obey the guidance of the Holy Spirit and our lives will continue to renew through Him.

Meditation 2: Christians are living in this world, but why do they not belong to this world? We are the children of heaven, and our identities are not part of this world. Although we do not belong to this world, yet we proactively face the world and not passively evade this world. The Christians’ mission is not to restore this world, but to lead and save people out of this world. We have an honorable status in this world, and we bear a great mission to glorify God, to witness for the Lord, to preach the gospel in order to lead people to the Lord. 

Prayer: God heavenly Father, thank You for the riches of Your mercy. There is nothing to boast about my receiving of Your grace. Please help me and let me be grateful. I will make good use of the time given to me and live a godly life, cherish every moment to witness Your greatness, preach the gospel and glorify Your holy name. I pray in the precious name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
