你是“王室”的成员


默想:


“你们所受的不是奴仆的心,仍旧害怕;所受的乃是儿子的心,因此我们呼叫:‘阿爸,父!’”(罗815


静思:


很可悲,许多基督徒不信他们是神家的人。之前,信徒间流行着诸如“我得救了,但我不是基督徒”这样的说法。接着,便有人解释说:“嗯,我不配称自己是基督徒,因为我没有基督徒应有的见证。”


容我来“搞定”这事。你不是已经信了耶稣基督,认罪悔改了吗?你不是曾经呼求耶稣把你从‘该下地狱’的审判中拯救出来吗?如果你承认这事,那你就是‘三一’神的家人。你是国王的孩子!既然你是神家的成员,耶稣就不仅是你是主和救主,他还是你的朋友和兄弟。


行动:


你会不会因为自己有罪便以为自己不配称为基督徒?如果是这样的话,跪下来,认罪悔改——因为不信使你不知道自己是王(神)的孩子。(译者注:作者在这里说的“不信”不是针对得救的“信心”说的,而是针对对神的“信心”说的。哥林多教会有人不信死人复活,就是属于这种情况。)

You can be part of the royal family


BIBLE MEDITATION:


For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, “Abba, Father.” Romans 8:15


DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:


It is tragic, but many will never accept that they are a saint in God’s family. A while back, it was in vogue for believers to make comments like “I’m saved, but I’m not a Christian.” Then the person would explain, “Well, I’m not worthy to call myself a Christian because I’m not living like one.”


Let me nail this down for you. Have you believed upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and repented of your sins? Have you called upon Him to save you from the judgment of hell? If so, then you are the next of kin to the Trinity. You are a child of the King! Since you are part of God’s family, Jesus is not only your Lord and Savior, but He is your Friend and Brother.


ACTION POINT:


Have you felt like you couldn’t call yourself a Christian because of your sin? Then get on your knees and repent of the sin of unbelief that keeps you from knowing you are a child of the King!


Love worth finding
