每日金句

……存心忍耐,奔那……路程,仰望为我们信心创始成终的耶稣。……

 

—来 12:1-2

…Let us run with perseverance …fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith …

—Hebrews 12:1-2

昨天我们看到希伯来书11章勉励我们,当从昔日凭信心生活的人身上学习榜样,希伯来书12章则提醒我们,无论神把我们放在世上什么地方,当我们凭信心生活时,我们便应“仰望……耶稣,”存心忍耐奔跑天路。

耶稣是信心的创始者。每当我们唱“奇异恩典,何等甘甜,我罪已得赦免;前我失丧,今被寻回,瞎眼,今得看见……”时,我们就是在颂扬这个真理。好牧人耶稣,来寻找和拯救所有迷失在罪恶和黑暗中的人,当祂寻见我们,便更新我们、赐我们新生命、领我们与祂同住。(参路 15,19:1-10)耶稣能够这样做,是因为祂已成就了救恩;祂舍弃自己的性命,为我们所有的罪付上赎价,祂代替我们受死,又胜过死亡复活了;祂又与所有信祂为主和救主的人,分享祂丰盛和永恒的生命。

耶稣也是信心的成终者。祂凭信心为我们展示了完美的人生——从来没有失败或放弃过。耶稣顺服神并完全信赖神的救赎计划,祂为我们“轻看羞辱,忍受了十字架的苦难,”为祂父的荣耀忠心到底。耶稣“忍受……这样顶撞,……免得(我们)疲倦灰心。”

让我们来继续专心仰望祂吧,因为祂必照应许常与我们同在。(参太 28:20)

Yesterday we saw that Hebrews 11 encourages us to learn from people in the past who lived by faith. Hebrews 12 reminds us to keep going with perseverance, "fixing our eyes on Jesus" as we live by faith wherever God has placed us in this world.

Jesus is the pioneer of faith. We celebrate this truth whenever we sing, "Amazing grace—how sweet the sound—that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now am found, was blind, but now I see …" Jesus, the good shepherd, came to seek and save all who are lost in sin and darkness. And when he finds us, he restores us, gives us new life, and takes us to live with him (see Luke 15; 19:1-10). Jesus can do all this because he made salvation possible. He paid the price for all our sins by giving up his own life. He took our place and died for our sake. Then he rose again in victory over death—and he shares his abundant, eternal life with all who believe in him as the Lord and Savior.

Jesus is also the perfecter of faith. He lived perfectly by faith for our sake—never failing or falling away. In obedience to God and complete trust in God’s salvation plan, Jesus "endured the cross, scorning its shame" for our sake, remaining faithful for his Father’s glory. Jesus "endured such opposition" so that we "will not grow weary and lose heart."

Let us keep our focus on him, for he is with us always (see Matthew 28:20).
