我们在这里聆听
We are here to listen

Acts 10:29-33

29所以我一被邀请,就毫不推辞地来了。现在请问:你们请我来是为什么事?30哥尼流说:四天以前下午三点钟,我在家里祷告的时候,忽然有一位身穿光明衣服的人,站在我面前,31说:哥尼流,你的祷告已蒙垂听,你的善行在上帝面前已蒙记念。32你要派人到约帕去,请那个名叫彼得的西门来。他在海边一个制皮工人西门的家作客。33所以我立刻派人去请你,现在你来了,好极了!我们都在上帝面前,要听主吩咐你的一切话。

29 So when I was sent for, I came without raising any objection. May I ask why you sent for me?” 30 Cornelius answered: “Three days ago I was in my house praying at this hour, at three in the afternoon. Suddenly a man in shining clothes stood before me 31 and said, ‘Cornelius, God has heard your prayer and remembered your gifts to the poor. 32 Send to Joppa for Simon who is called Peter. He is a guest in the home of Simon the tanner, who lives by the sea.’33 So I sent for you immediately, and it was good of you to come. Now we are all here in the presence of God to listen to everything the Lord has commanded you to tell us.”

重点学习

当我们面对上帝的话语时,必须谨记我们不是在和凡人打交道,而是上帝临在并呼唤着我们。这般对上帝的遵从使上帝的话变得尊贵以及让我们存敬畏的心聆听这话。

当我们以全然的信心把自己完全献于上帝,这样的信心才是真实的。多数人只顺从上帝的教导中那些取悦人心的部分,而对于那些令人不悦的却置之不理或拒绝接受。

歌尼流对于上帝与人做出了很有智慧的区分。在他看来上帝是这教义的作者,而人只是这教义的服事者或使者。

 

Lessons Learn

Whenever the Word of God is set before us, we must remember that we are not dealing with a mortal man but that God is present and is calling us. From such respect for God arise the majesty of the Word and reverence in hearing it.

It is only true faith when we give ourselves wholly to God of this complete faith. Most people only submit to God’s teaching as far as it pleases them. If anything displeases them, they disregard or reject it without caring.

Cornelius wisely distinguished between God and man, for he saw God as the author of the doctrine, leaving man the role merely of minister and ambassador.
