神做了什么?我们该做什么?(中英对照)
读经:  彼得后书一章3至11节


3 神的神能已将一切关乎生命和虔敬的事赐给我们,皆因我们认识那用自己荣耀和美德召我们的主。

4 因此,他已将又宝贵、又极大的应许赐给我们,叫我们既脱离世上从情欲来的败坏,就得与神的性情有分。

5 正因这缘故,你们要分外地殷勤。有了信心,又要加上德行;有了德行,又要加上知识;

6 有了知识,又要加上节制;有了节制,又要加上忍耐;有了忍耐,又要加上虔敬;

7 有了虔敬,又要加上爱弟兄的心;有了爱弟兄的心,又要加上爱众人的心。

8 你们若充充足足地有这几样,就必使你们在认识我们的主耶稣基督上,不至于閒懒不结果子了。

9 人若没有这几样,就是眼瞎,只看见近处的,忘了他旧日的罪已经得了洁净。

10 所以弟兄们,应当更加殷勤,使你们所蒙的恩召和拣选坚定不移。你们若行这几样,就永不失脚。

11 这样,必叫你们丰丰富富地得以进入我们主救主耶稣基督永远的国。

毫无疑问,我们的神是一个厚赐百物的神。这是圣经传达给我们的一个重要信息。保罗写道:「神既不爱惜自己的儿子…………岂不也把万物和他一同白白地赐给我们么?」(罗八32)答案十分明显。

彼得在这里的第3节给我们一个重要的提醒:「神的神能已将一切关乎生命和虔敬的事赐给我们。」他已把新生命和活出这生命的能力赐给我们;那么,我们为何会经常软弱跌倒呢?

神还将「又宝贵又极大的应许赐给了我们」。我们可能知道这些应许,可是,却没有常常祈求神使应许实现。彼得指出,神知道我们活在堕落的世界中,要经常面对从世界而来的各样试探,于是,他赐给我们这些应许的其中一个目的,就是要帮助我们胜过试探。

神既已做成这一切,我们还要做什么呢?彼得在第5至7节列出七项特质,是我们在基督里成长过程中必须建立的。

彼得说:「有了信心,又要加上德行。」「德行」这个词,可解作美善或优良的品格,什或是不计代价而坚持正义。这是一种择善而从的品格。

「知识」是人生的准备,为的是要帮助我们作出正确的抉择。「节制」就是要有自律的思想和生活。坚韧或执着表示无论遇到什么,都坚决寻求并遵从神的旨意,即是面对试炼时的「忍耐」。

「敬虔」是承认神是我们生命的主,并让神的话语光照我们的人生,凡事谨遵他的话语而行。「敬虔」是人生的态度;而「爱心」则是敬虔生命的流露。

这七项特质是基督徒生命的成长标记。我们不妨检视自己,看我们已拥有多少这样的特质。要紧记,神已将我们每天为他而活的一切所需都赐给我们,所以,我们今天要凡事信靠他、感谢他。

WHAT HAS GOD DONE? WHAT SHOULD WE DO?
Day 2

 
Bible Reading:  

2 Peter 1:3-11

3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,

4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

5 But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge,

6 to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness,

7 to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.

8 For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

9 For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.
 
10 Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble;

11 for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

There is no doubt we have a giving God. This is one of the greatest themes of the Bible. Paul wrote “He who did not spare His own Son ... how will He not ... graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8:32) The answer is obvious.

In verse 3, Peter makes a challenging statement, “His desire power has given us everything we need for life and goodness…” (NIV) He has given us a new life and the power to live that life. So why do we so often fail?

God has also given us “great and precious promises”. We may know them but we do not always ask God to fulfill them. Peter said one of the purposes of these promises is to enable us to overcome the temptations which the unsaved, degenerate world puts in front of us continuously.

If God has done all this, what is there left for us to do? In verses 5-7 Peter lists seven qualities we must build into our lives in order to grow in Christ.

Peter says, “You have faith, then add courage or virtue.” The word can mean goodness or excellence or even to stand for the right, regardless of cost. It is life's determination.

Knowledge is life's preparation. It will help you make right decisions. Self-control will give a disciplined mind and life. Perseverance or steadfastness means whatever comes we will seek to do God's will. It is patience in the face of trial.

Godliness is recognizing God as our Lord and carefully living in the light of His Word. It is life's attitude. Love is life's overflow.

These seven qualities are the marks of a growing Christian life. Can we look at our own lives today to see how many are present? Remember God has given all we need to daily live for Him. Thank Him and trust Him today.
