满有恩惠和能力 Full of Grace and Power

Acts 6:8-10

8司提反满有恩惠能力,在民间施行大奇事和神迹。9当时有几个称为自由人会堂的人,就是从古利奈和亚历山太来的人,另外还有基利家人和亚西亚人,他们出面与司提反辩论,10但司提反靠着圣灵和智慧说话,他们就抵挡不住。

Now Stephen, a man full of God’s grace and power, performed great wonders and signs among the people. Opposition arose, however, from members of the Synagogue of the Freedmen (as it was called)—Jews of Cyrene and Alexandria as well as the provinces of Cilicia and Asia—who began to argue with Stephen. 10 But they could not stand up against the wisdom the Spirit gave him as he spoke.

 

 

重点学习

路加指出,司提反是一位满有上帝恩惠和大能的人,让我们能明白,司提反无论是在他生命里或者通过他的死亡,都荣耀基督的名。

路加还指出,司提反的对手是外地人,他们有的来犹太地是为了行商,有的是为了学习。

就我们而言,基督已承诺将圣灵赐给祂所有的仆人,所以我们应该切实地为真理应战。上帝会装备我们,赐我们该说的话,使我们永远不会因为敌人的城府而感到羞愧。烈士们为了真理而面对被火折磨,他们的见证让我们看到圣灵在我们这个时代仍然大有作为。

 

 

Lessons Learn

Luke states that Stephen was a man full God’s grace and power, so that we might know that Christ was glorified in Stephen’s life as well as in his death.

Luke also points out that the opponents were foreigners who were in Judea either on business or because they wanted to learn.

As far as we are concerned, because Christ has promised the same Spirit to all his servants we must fight for the truth conscientiously, and then we will be equipped to speak so that we will never put to shame by the shrewdness of our enemies. Thus the Spirit was just as effective in our own time through the martyrs as they were dragged off to be tortured by fire.
