证明耶稣是基督
Proving that Jesus is the Messiah

Acts 9:19-22

19吃过了饭,就有气力了。他和大马士革的门徒一同住了几天。20随即在各会堂传讲耶稣,说他是上帝的儿子。21听见的人都很惊奇,说:在耶路撒冷残害求告这名的,不是这个人吗?他来这里不是要缉拿他们交给祭司长吗?22然而扫罗更加有能力,驳倒住在大马士革的犹太人,证明耶稣是基督。

19 and after taking some food, he regained his strength. Saul spent several days with the disciples in Damascus. 20 At once he began to preach in the synagogues that Jesus is the Son of God. 21 All those who heard him were astonished and asked, “Isn’t he the man who raised havoc in Jerusalem among those who call on this name? And hasn’t he come here to take them as prisoners to the chief priests?” 22 Yet Saul grew more and more powerful and baffled the Jews living in Damascus by proving that Jesus is the Messiah.

 

重点学习

路加继而叙述保罗归主所产生的巨大成效。保罗即刻公开地宣扬自己为基督的门徒,也因放胆维护福音而惹怒他的仇敌,以致将自己置身于险境中。保罗本是强烈地抵挡基督,如今却谦卑地顺服基督的旨意,甚至为了维护基督的荣耀而身陷险境,诚如一位身先士卒的将领。

我们若想逃离这祸患,就别再与上帝为敌,反而应谦卑地接受圣经所启示的平安。

 

Lessons Learn

Luke now goes on to tell us how fruitful Paul’s conversion was. He immediately appeared in public, not only declaring that he was a disciple of Christ but also exposing himself to his enemies’ fury by defending the Gospel boldly. He who had been furious against Christ now submitted meekly to his will and even went to the point of extreme danger to vindicate Christ’s glory, fighting like a standard-bearer.

If we long to escape this trouble, let us not rebel against God but humbly receive the peace that Scripture offers.
