What God promised our ancestors

Acts 13:31-34

31 有许多日子,他向那些跟他一同从加利利上耶路撒冷的人显现,现在这些人在民众面前作了他的见证人, 32 我们报好信息给你们:上帝给列祖的应许, 33 借着耶稣的复活,向我们这些作子孙的应验了。就如诗篇第二篇所记的:‘你是我的儿子,我今日生了你。’ 34 至于上帝使他从死人中复活,不再归于朽坏,他曾这样说:‘我必把应许大卫的、神圣可靠的恩福赐给你们。’

31 and for many days he was seen by those who had travelled with him from Galilee to Jerusalem. They are now his witnesses to our people. 32 “We tell you the good news: What God promised our ancestors  33 he has fulfilled for us, their children, by raising up Jesus. As it is written in the second Psalm: “‘You are my son;  today I have become your father.’ 34 God raised him from the dead so that he will never be subject to decay. As God has said, “‘I will give you the holy and sure blessings promised to David.’




Lessons Learn

We are heirs of the same kingdom of heaven, and we share the same good things that God gave his children before; also, God gave them a taste of his love in this life. Just as we taste him now. But Christ, who is the substance of all good things and of eternal life, was merely promised to them, while he has been given to us; and they desired him when he was far off, while we have his presence.

It is faith alone, they say, that makes us descendants of Abraham.
