260靈修 Dec.26, 2011: 羅馬書第十章 Romans 10

第十章

8然而那出於信心的義還說甚麼呢?“這話與你相近,在你口裡,也在你心裡。”這話就是我們所傳信心的信息。9你若口裡認耶穌為主,心裡信神使他從死人中復活,就必得救;10因為心裡相信就必稱義,用口承認就必得救。11經上說:“所有信靠他的人,必不致失望。”12其實並不分猶太人和希臘人,因為大家同有一位主;他厚待所有求告他的人,13因為“凡求告主名的,都必得救。”14然而,人還沒有信他,怎能求告他呢?沒有聽見他,怎能信他呢?沒有人傳揚,怎能聽見呢?15如果沒有蒙差遣,怎能傳揚呢?如經上所記:“那些傳美事報喜訊的人,他們的腳蹤多麼美!”

 

默想

  1. 既然我已經得救,為什麼我還需要公開地口中承認耶穌是主,並相信神叫祂從死裡復活?
  2. 現代宣教之父——威廉克里,在明白了羅10:14-15這類的經文之意義後,就決心回應神的呼召,前往印度宣教。今天,我感到神呼召我去哪裡傳福音?
  3. 我應該採取什麼步驟(或是已經採取),來順服神的呼召?

 

禱告與筆錄:

繼續安靜在神面前,與神對話,並聆聽祂對我說的話。將心中的思想(心得),或是與神的禱告,記錄在“靈程筆記”簿上面。

 

Chapter10

8But what does it say? "The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart, "that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: 9That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. 11As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame."12For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."

14How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!"

 

Meditation

  1. Beyond the fact that I am saved, why is it important for me to publicly confess with my lips that Jesus is Lord and believe that God raised him from the dead (vv. 9-13)?
  2. Realizing the implications of verses such as Romans 10:14-15, William Carey, the father of modern missions, responded to God's call and went to India. Where do I feel called to go with the gospel?
  3. What steps can I take (or have I taken) to be obedient to that call?

 

Prayer & Journaling:

Stay with God for a little longer.  Continue to converse with God and listen to what he wants to tell me.  Then write down any thought and/or prayer in the 2011 “Spiritual Journal” book.
