《今日靈修默想》:「這樣看來,人稱義是因著行為,不是單因著信。」(雅2:24)

默想一:基督教跟其他宗教所講的「相信神」最大的不同在哪裡?我們承認並堅信耶穌基督是道路、真理、生命,祂是神與 人中間唯一的中保,只有這種信心能帶來救恩及稱義,這種信心不是只在言語或口頭上的承認,而是在生活中自然地流露出神的美善。

默想二:弟兄姐妹,你的信心是活的?還是死的?這要完全看你是否徹底信任主,並帶有意志行動。活的信心與死的信心,差別在有沒有順服神的行動。可能你已受過洗,但這不能證明你的得救。真正能證明你得救的是你信主之後所活出來的生命。信心因著行為才得以完全。真實的信心會活出真實的生命。

禱告:天父上帝,感謝祢的憐憫及豐盛的恩典。求祢的聖靈內住我心,時刻地充滿我並引導我,讓我的聽道與行道不僅是一致的,我的信心與行為也是並行。求袮教導我,每天活出與信心相稱的生活。奉耶穌基督的名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone.” (Jas 2:24)

Meditation one: What is the major difference between Christianity and other religions that also claim “believe in god”? We confess with our mouths and believe firmly that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, the life, and that He is the only mediator between God and man. Only this kind of faith can bring salvation and be justified as righteousness. The faith is not simply a stated or verbal acknowledgement; it also naturally reveals God’s goodness through one’s daily life.

Meditation two: Brothers and sisters, is your faith alive or dead? It depends entirely on whether you fully believe in the Lord and determine to act accordingly. The difference between a living faith and a dead faith is whether there is deeds resulted from obedience to God. Maybe you have been baptized, but that doesn’t prove you are saved. What really proves that you are saved is the life you live after believing in the Lord. Faith is made perfect through deeds. True faith will live out a genuine life.

Prayer: God heavenly Father, thank You for your mercy and wonderful grace. May the Holy Spirit lives in my heart, fills me and guides me, so the words I hear is consistent with the the things I do. My faith is also consistent with my deeds. Ask You to teach me to live a life that is commensurate with my faith every day. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
