《今日靈修默想》:「你們要結出果子來,與悔改的心相稱。」(路3:8)

默想一:怎麼看出一個人是真心悔改?不是看他有沒有受過洗,也不是看他在教會有沒有熱心服事,也不是讀完聖經一遍,而是看他的行事為人及言語態度有沒有與基督的福音相稱。神不看人外表的形式,乃是看人內心屬靈的實際。重生得救的基督徒,要有實際的生活和行為,來證明裡面的悔改。

默想二:你信主受洗後,別人能認出你是屬於基督的人嗎?基督的信仰是關乎你個人與神之間的直接關係,不是仰賴家族血統及傳統的間接關係。在神的家裡,我們屬靈的身分是神的兒子,不是孫子,更不是浪子。凡真誠悔改的會有基督生命的流露,結出聖靈的果子來。

禱告:感謝神,因祢的奇妙救恩。求祢差遣聖靈,時時刻刻充滿我、光照我、塑造我、更新我、引導我,讓我的每一天活出祢的形像,見證祢的榮美。奉主耶穌的名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “Produce fruit in keeping with repentance.” (Luk 3:8)

Meditation one: How can you apprehend that a person has truly repented? It is not to see if one has been baptized, or to see if one has served zealous in the church, or has thoroughly read the Bible once, but to see if one’s deeds and words and attitude are in line with the gospel of Christ. God does not look at one’s appearance, but at one’s spiritual reality. A born-again Christian must show a real life and deeds to prove the repentance inside.

Meditation two: After you have believed in the Lord and been baptized, can others recognize you as a person belongs to Christ? The faith in Christ is about the direct relationship between you and God, not the indirect relationship that depends on family ancestry and tradition. In God’s house, our spiritual identity is the Son of God, not the grandson, nor the prodigal son. Those who sincerely repent will reveal the life of Christ, bearing the fruit of the Holy Spirit.

Prayer: Thank God for Your amazing salvation. Please send the Holy Spirit to fill in me, to shine on me, to mold me, to renew me, to guide me, so every day I can live out Your image to testify Your glorious beauty. I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus. Amen!
