叫圣徒们都进来!
He called for the believers!

Acts 9:39-43

39彼得就动身,跟他们一同去。到了之后,他们领他上楼。所有寡妇站在彼得旁边哭,把多加和她们在一起的时候所做的内衣外衣拿给他看。40彼得叫大家出去之后,就跪下来祷告,然后转过身来对着尸体说:戴比莎,起来!她就睁开眼睛,一看见彼得,就坐了起来。41彼得伸手扶她起来,叫圣徒们和寡妇都进来,把多加活活地交给他们。42这事传遍了约帕,就有很多人信了主。43此后,彼得在约帕一个制皮工人西门的家里住了许多日子。

39 Peter went with them, and when he arrived he was taken upstairs to the room. All the widows stood around him, crying and showing him the robes and other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was still with them.40 Peter sent them all out of the room; then he got down on his knees and prayed. Turning toward the dead woman, he said, “Tabitha, get up.” She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter she sat up. 41 He took her by the hand and helped her to her feet. Then he called for the believers, especially the widows, and presented her to them alive. 42 This became known all over Joppa, and many people believed in the Lord. 43 Peter stayed in Joppa for some time with a tanner named Simon.

 

重点学习

我们也必须意识到每当主藉着使徒行神迹时,祂总是以圣灵的内在运行来引导他们。

这几节经文也反映了谦卑的态度。我们的全身上下都可用来敬拜上帝,而身体的姿势可以辅助软弱的心思。只是每当我们双膝跪下时,我们的心也必须是谦卑下来,才算表里合一。

信徒的幸福规则是向基督活着,也向着祂死。而当我们把自己献给祂,无论生死,基督都是我们的福分。

我们晓得彼得是位大有能力的使徒,但他总是把人引向基督。

We must also recognize that whenever the Lord decided to perform a miracle through his apostles, he always guided them by an inner moving of the Spirit.

These verses also show a sign of humility, all parts of our body being applied to the worship of God, and the bodily posture helping the weak mind. But whenever we kneel, we must be careful that our hearts match the humility of the action.

The rule of happiness of believers is to live and die to him; and when we dedicate ourselves to him, Christ is a blessing to us as much in life as in death.

We know, Peter had been a minister of great power, but he directed people to Christ.
