我敬拜我祖先的上帝
I worship the God of our ancestors

Acts 24:10-14

10 总督向保罗示意,叫他说话,他就说:“我知道你在本国审案多年,所以乐意为自己申辩。 11 你清楚知道,自从我上耶路撒冷去礼拜,到现在还没有十二天; 12 无论在殿里、会堂中或城里,他们都没有看见我跟人辩论,或煽动群众作乱, 13 也不能向你证明他们现在控告我的事。 14 但有一件事我要向你承认,他们所称为异端的这道,我正是根据这道来敬拜我祖先的上帝的。一切律法和先知所记的,我都相信

10 When the governor motioned for him to speak, Paul replied: “I know that for a number of years you have been a judge over this nation; so I gladly make my defense. 11 You can easily verify that no more than twelve days ago I went up to Jerusalem to worship. 12 My accusers did not find me arguing with anyone at the temple, or stirring up a crowd in the synagogues or anywhere else in the city. 13 And they cannot prove to you the charges they are now making against me. 14 However, I admit that I worship the God of our ancestors as a follower of the Way, which they call a sect. I believe everything that is in accordance with the Law and that is written in the Prophets, 

 

重点学习

敬拜上帝必须藉着信心,这样我们的顺服便蒙上帝悦纳。因此保罗直截了当地宣告他信上帝以此来证明他是上帝的仆人,而不是大谈各种宗教礼仪。

这段经文意在说明顺服并以敬畏的心接受圣经的教导才是正统信仰的根据。

 

Lessons Learn

It is only by faith that God is worshipped, so that our obedience can please him. So Paul did not merely talk of ceremonies when he wanted to prove himself God’s servant but flatly stated that he believed.

This verse also shows that the only basis for orthodox faith is to submit ourselves to Scripture, reverently accepting its teaching.
