施恩于他们
A favour to them

Acts 25:1-5

非斯都到任三天之后,就从该撒利亚去耶路撒冷。祭司长和犹太人的首领,到他面前控告保罗。他们又要求非斯都,求他恩准对付保罗,把保罗解来耶路撒冷,他们好埋伏在路上杀死他。非斯都回答:“保罗现今押在该撒利亚,我就要回到那里去。”又说:“你们中间有权势的,和我一同去吧!那人若有什么不是,他们就可以告他。”

Three days after arriving in the province, Festus went up from Caesarea to Jerusalem,where the chief priests and the Jewish leaders appeared before him and presented the charges against Paul. They requested Festus, as a favour to them, to have Paul transferred to Jerusalem, for they were preparing an ambush to kill him along the way. Festus answered, “Paul is being held at Caesarea, and I myself am going there soon. Let some of your leaders come with me, and if the man has done anything wrong, they can press charges against him there.”

 

重点学习

我们晓得新官走马上任的时候总会给他管辖范围内的人许多好处,为的是要得到当地人的拥戴。但非斯都并没有这么做。

让保罗的信心在我们遭遇患难是扶持我们,并激励我们求告上帝,以致我们的心思能够保持冷静,知道主伸出臂膀捣毁这庞大的阴谋是要显明祂保护保罗的大能。

 

Lessons Learn

We know that new rulers want to win the favor of those in the provinces, and so they often grant them many things when they first arrive. But not Festus.

Let Paul’s confidence sustain us in danger and also stirs up to call on God; and let this make our minds quiet and calm, that when the Lord reached out and destroyed such a strong conspiracy, he demonstrated for all time his power in defending Paul.
