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:恩典的救赎

得蒙神的恩典,是因基督耶稣的救赎,白白地称义。——罗马书3:24

救赎是白白得来的。上帝没有给恩典标价--恩典是白白得来传道人不是销售员,因他们没有东西可卖。他们是福音的传播者,福音就是:基督照圣经所说的,为我们的罪死了(哥林多前书15:3)。金钱买不到福音,正直换不来福音,社会威望不能帮助你得到它,道德不能买到它。正如以赛亚说:不用银钱,不用价值。

上帝不是一位讨价还价的上帝。你也不能跟他讨价还价,你只能按照他自己的方式来与他相交,在他权能的手中掌有无价的,珍贵的和永恒的救赎,并且他使你不用花一分钱可以得到救赎。生命中最好的事就是免费,不是吗?我们呼吸的空气不按体积来卖,从山中小溪涌流出清澈的水源也是供我们免费来饮的。

爱是免费的,信仰是免费的,希望也是免费的!

今日祷告:
我的救赎是由你昂贵的牺牲,但你把它白白的赐给我,主啊,我赞美你因你把你最爱的耶稣基督赐给了我!

Daily Devotion:Salvation Is Free

Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. —Romans 3:24

Salvation isfree! God puts no price tag on the Gift of gifts—it’s free! Preachers are notsalesmen, for they have nothing to sell. They are bearers of Good News—the goodtidings that “Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures” (1Corinthians 15:3). Money can’t buy it. Man’s righteousness can’t earn it.Social prestige can’t help you acquire it. Morality can’t purchase it. It is,as Isaiah said, “without money and without price.”

God is not abargaining God. You cannot barter with Him. You must do business with Him onHis own terms. He holds in His omnipotent hand the priceless, precious, eternalgift of salvation, and He bids you to take it without money and without price.The best things in life are free, are they not? The air we breathe is not sold bythe cubic foot. The water which flows crystal clear from the mountain stream isfree for the taking. Love is free, faith is free, hope is free.

Prayer for the day:
Even though my salvation was obtained only through the costliest sacrifice ever made, Youfreely gave it to me. Lord, I praise You for this gift so lovingly given.
