每日灵粮(2010-08-23):赦免

 

Luke 7:36-50 

August - 23



 

FORGIVEN

“I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven . . . .” Luke 7:47



Bankruptcy, the legal term for the deteriorating financial condition under which a person or business is brought to court. The most desperate form of bankruptcy occurs when people surrender their assets (what little they own) and a list of their debts (what they owe, which is a far higher figure) and allow the court to do whatever it wishes.

 

The woman who approached Jesus in our story today had a huge debt weighing her down. It was the debt of having “lived a sinful life.” Luke does not specify the sin, but both she and the townspeople knew what it was, and this debt of sin was overwhelming to her.

 

The woman had a few meager assets. One was an expensive jar of perfume. For someone of her reputation, this was a useless asset, like having a large expensive automobile and not being able to buy the gasoline to run it. Another asset was her hair—also useless by business standards, since you can’t do anything with hair.

 

But Jesus announced that this woman’s actions gave evidence that she had another asset: God’s gift of saving faith in his Son. In her moral bankruptcy, she had met the God whose infinite riches of grace are available to all who know their need. And Jesus blessed her with forgiveness and peace. Has he done that for you?

 

PRAYER

Lord Jesus, we know that on our own we have nothing to offer. But may your Spirit continue to assure us that faith in you frees us from the debt of our sins. Amen.



路加福音   7:36-50

August - 23



 

赦免

「所以我告诉你,她许多的罪都赦免了……」 路7:47



    破产是一个法律名词,是指某人或某公司因为财困而要面对法庭裁判,而最坏的情形是,当事人要交出所有资产(即使所余无几)和一份债务清单(就是他们所欠的债务,数目远远超出他们的资产),然后由法庭处置。

 

    在今天所读的故事中,那个寻找耶稣的女人负债累累。她所欠的债就是「活在罪中」。路加并没有具体说明她犯了甚么罪,但她自己和她的同乡都心知肚明,而这罪债是她无力偿还的。

 

    这女人拥有微薄的资产,其中是一瓶昂贵的香膏。对她这种声名狼藉的人来说。这种资产是不管用的。就好像拥有一辆昂贵的汽车,却买不起汽油来驾驶一样。她拥有的另一项资产,是她的头发,但从商业角度来看,同样是没有用的,因为头发亦没有甚么作用可言。

 

    然而,耶稣宣称这女人的举动证明她还拥有另一项资产:对神赐下爱子拯救人类的信心。尽管她已经道德破产,但她认识了神,祂有无穷的恩典可以赐给一切有需要的人。于是,耶稣祝福她,赦免了她的罪,并赐她平安。祂曾为你这样作吗?

祷告

主耶稣,我们知道,单凭自己没有甚么可以献给祢。但愿祢的灵继续使我们确信借着对祢的信心,便能免去我们的罪债。笑云奉耶稣名求,阿们。
