活出所信 (李昊傳道)

為何這個時代的惡在蒸蒸日上,善在節節敗退?可以說這是人類科技最發達、經濟最繁榮的時代,卻又是人類道得罪敗壞、信仰最無力的時代。有人曾問:「為什麼到處遊走的惡人越來越多?」智者回答說:「因為好人都在教堂裡做禮拜呢!」
我們要如何才能將我們的信仰活出來呢?
一、如何真正領受神的道?
二、為何難以遵行神的道?
三、活出所信
1. 言語上造就人:「善人從他心裡所存的善就發出善來。」(路6:45)
2. 行為上有愛心:「你們若單愛那愛你們的人,有甚麼可酬謝的呢?」(路6:32)
3. 心思意念:救人靈魂的道能潔淨人心,讓我們少受到世俗的侵襲,多一點基督的清香。

活出所信,是屬靈生命的彰顯,是福音的見證,是神的子民在這個大變革時代的責任——跪下來能禱告,站起來能行道!



雅各書 1:19-27 (和合本)

  1. 我親愛的弟兄們,這是你們所知道的,但你們各人要快快的聽,慢慢的說,慢慢的動怒,
  2. 因為人的怒氣並不成就神的義。
  3. 所以,你們要脫去一切的污穢和盈餘的邪惡,存溫柔的心領受那所栽種的道,就是能救你們靈魂的道。
  4. 只是你們要行道,不要單單聽道,自己欺哄自己。
  5. 因為聽道而不行道的,就像人對著鏡子看自己本來的面目,
  6. 看見,走後,隨即忘了他的相貌如何。
  7. 惟有詳細察看那全備、使人自由之律法的,並且時常如此,這人既不是聽了就忘,乃是實在行出來,就在他所行的事上必然得福。
  8. 若有人自以為虔誠,卻不勒住他的舌頭,反欺哄自己的心,這人的虔誠是虛的。
  9. 在神我們的父面前,那清潔沒有玷污的虔誠,就是看顧在患難中的孤兒寡婦,並且保守自己不沾染世俗。
James 1:19-27 (NIV)

  1. My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,
  2. because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.
  3. Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.
  4. Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
  5. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror
  6. and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.
  7. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.
  8. Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless.
  9. Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
