神爱世人,甚至将他的独生子赐给他们,叫一切信他的,
不至灭亡,反得永生。(约3:16).

中文灵修:相信的能力

若口里认耶稣为主,心里信神叫他从死里复活就必得救。——罗 10:9

因为相信某种事物存在而使其真的存在(信什么有什么),这不太可能。神的福音不会因为人们相信而存在,耶稣的坟墓不会因人们的相信而在复活节的时候变成空的。因为事实胜于信心。没有信仰的对象,我们心里不可能产生信心基督教信仰的对象是耶稣基督对基督的信心不仅仅意味着理智的认同没有人要求你相信不可靠的事情,但是要相信这个最伟大的历史事实。信心意味着顺服和委身基督,通过五官我们无法认识耶稣,但是通过神赐给每个人的第六感觉——相信的能力,我们就可以认识神。

今日祷告:
主啊,让我常常定睛在你身上,使我的信心永不动摇,有太多的时候我只看脚下,以致于跌倒。求你让我重新明白你死里复活的能力
主耶稣基督的圣名,阿们!

Daily Devotion:The Ability to Believe

. . . believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead . . . Romans 10:9

It is impossible to believe anything into existence. The Gospel did not come into being because men believed it. The tomb was not emptied of Christ’s body that first Easter because some faithful persons believed it. The fact preceded the faith. We are psychologically incapable of believing without an object of our faith. The object of Christian faith is Christ. Faith means more than an intellectual assent to the claims of Christ. You are not called upon to believe something that is not credible, but to believe in the fact of history that in reality transcends all history. Faith actually means surrender and commitment to the claims of Christ. We do not know Christ through the five physical senses, but we know Him through the sixth sense that God has given every man—the ability to believe.

Prayer for the day:
As I keep my eyes on You, Lord, my faith does not waver. Too often I look down and stumble. Let me comprehend today afresh the power that raised You from the dead.
In Jesus' name, Amen!
