关于我

主啊,我有一个祈祷,让十架旗帜在这里飘。 引我奔走前面的路程,让我的生命完全倾倒。掌管我生命深处的钥匙,接受我隐秘深处的爱情。 在我未收回我的奉献时,捆绑我在你的祭坛,以免我凭己意在世界流连忘返。你是我坚固营垒的破碎者,又是我属天灵宫的重建者。 # 我的祈祷只有一句话,主啊重建城墙永不倒,我的祈祷只有一句话,主啊重建城墙永不倒。

Boasting -Part 2

夸口-第二篇

 

This is what the LORD says:“Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the LORD.

耶和华如此说:智慧人不要因他的智慧夸口,勇士不要因他的勇力夸口,财主不要因他的财物夸口。夸口的却因他有聪明,认识我是耶和华,又知道我喜悦在世上施行慈爱、公平,和公义,以此夸口。这是耶和华说的。

 

Jeremiah 9:23-24

耶利米书9:23-24

 

God told us in the above Scriptures that we should not boast of our wisdom, strength, or wealth.  Instead, if we boast, we ought to boast about our understanding and knowledge of God.  What is this knowledge of God that we can boast of?  It is, He is the LORD and He delights in exercising kindness, justice and righteousness in this world.

神在上面的经文告诉我们,我们不应该夸耀我们的智慧,力量,或财富。相反地,如果我们要夸,我们应该夸耀我们对神的理解和认识。这么对神的认识是什么,我们可以夸耀的呢?这就是,他是耶和华,他在这个世界上施行慈爱、公平,和公义。

 

Boasting of our wisdom, strength, or wealth shows our presumptive knowledge of ourselves.  Boasting of God's delight in kindness, justice and righteousness in this world expresses our knowledge of God.  Our grasp of truth about ourselves depends our grasp of truth about God.  So it is imperative to receive the truth of God.  Paul quoted Jeremiah 9:24 twice in the New Testament, 1 Corinthians 1:31 and 2 Corinthians 10:17, “Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.”  It shows the importance of this instruction of God.  It also lets us see that “in the Lord” means having the truth about God's nature and His will, manifesting His spirit.

夸耀我们的智慧,力量,或财富,显示我们对自己假定的认识。夸耀神喜悦慈爱、公平,和公义在这个世界上,表示我们对神的认识。我们对自己真理的把握,取决于我们关于神的真理的把握。因此,重要的是要接受神的真理。保罗两次在新约引述耶利米书9:24,就是哥林多前书1:31和哥林多后书10:17,“但夸口的,当指着主夸口。”  这表明神的这个指示的重要性。它也让我们看到,“指着主”是指神的性格和他的旨意的真理,表现出他的精神。

 

God is so much greater than us so the truth about God can only come through God: He reveals His truth to us so we may know Him.  Adam and Eve sinned when they sought knowledge apart from God and His will by eating the forbidden fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  From then on sin has separated mankind from the truth of God.  “They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him.  They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good.” (Tit 1:16)

神比我们大这么多,所以关于神的真理只能来自神:他向我们启示他的真理,让我们可以知道他。亚当和夏娃吃善恶树的禁果犯了罪时,他们在神和他的旨意以外寻求知识。从此罪把人类与神的真理分隔。 “他们说是认识神,行事却和他相背;本是可憎恶的,是悖逆的,在各样善事上是可废弃的。“(多1:16)

 

Revelation of God's general nature may be seen in His creation.  “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” (Ro 1:20)  The complete saving knowledge of God comes from the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

在神的创造中,可以看出他的一般性格的启示。 “自从造天地以来,神的永能和神性是明明可知的,虽是眼不能见,但藉着所造之物就可以晓得,叫人无可推诿。”(罗1:20)  神完整的救赎知识来自父,子,和圣灵。

 

The saving knowledge comes from the Father.  “For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.” (Pr 2:6)  Knowing this king David asked God, “Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.” (Ps 25:4-5)  We receive this knowledge from His Word which is the Bible.

救赎知识来自父。 “因为,耶和华赐人智慧;知识和聪明都由他口而出。”(箴2:6)  知道这一点大卫王求问神,“耶和华啊,求你将你的道指示我,将你的路教训我!求你以你的真理引导我,教训我,因为你是救我的神。我终日等候你。“(诗25:4-5)  我们从他的话语,就是圣经得到这方面的知识。

 

The saving wisdom and knowledge come from Christ.  He is the living Word of God and is the representation of the invisible God.  As Apostle Paul explained to the Colossian believers, “My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.  See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.” (Col 2:2-3, 8)  We have freedom from human tradition and the worldly customs when we ground our life on the knowledge of Christ.

救赎的智慧和知识来自基督。他是神活的道和无形的神的代表。正如使徒保罗向歌罗西的信徒解释,“要叫他们的心得安慰,因爱心互相联络,以致丰丰足足在悟性中有充足的信心,使他们真知神的奥秘,就是基督;所积蓄的一切智慧知识,都在他里面藏着。你们要谨慎,恐怕有人用他的理学和虚空的妄言,不照着基督,乃照人间的遗传和世上的小学就把你们掳去。“ (西2:2-3,8)  当我们的生命奠基在基督的知识上,我们就从人类的传统和世俗的风俗中得到自由。

 

This wonderful saving knowledge is also revealed to us by the Holy Spirit.  Jesus said, “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth.” (Jn 16:13)  Paul said, “However, as it is written:'No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him'—but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit.” (1 Co 2:9-10)

圣灵也向我们启示这个奇妙的救赎知识。耶稣说,“只等真理的圣灵来了,他要引导你们明白一切的真理。”(约16:13)  保罗说,“如经上所记:神为爱他的人所预备的是眼睛未曾看见,耳朵未曾听见,人心也未曾想到的。只有神藉着圣灵向我们显明了,因为圣灵参透万事,就是神深奥的事也参透了。“(林前2:9-10)

 

We must seek the knowledge of God through an ongoing relationship with Christ.  Oswald Chambers asks this question in his daily devotional My Utmost For His Highest for August 15, “Is my knowledge of Jesus born of internal spiritual perception or is it only what I have learned by listening to others?”  Is our knowledge of God our first hand experience in a saving relationship with Christ?  Our love relationship with Christ saves, but second hand knowledge leads to pride.  “Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up.” (1 Co 8:1)

我们必须通过与基督的持续关系来寻求神的知识。奥斯瓦德.章伯斯在他的每日灵修《竭誠為主》8月15日那一篇中问这个问题,“我对耶稣的知识是我内里的属灵感知所产生的,抑或是我听取别人的经验而来的呢?”  我们对神的知识是我们与基督拯救的关系的第一手经验吗? 我们与基督的爱的关系能拯救,但二手知识带来的是骄傲。 “但知识是叫人自高自大,惟有爱心能造就人。”(林前8:1)

 

The LORD spoke of king Shallum (Jehoahaz) of Judah through the prophet Jeremiah, “Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar? Did not your father have food and drink?  He did what was right and just, so all went well with him.  He defended the cause of the poor and needy, and so all went well. Is that not what it means to know me?” (Jer 22:15-16)

耶和华通过先知耶利米发言论到犹大王沙龙(约哈斯),“难道你作王是在乎造香柏木楼房争胜麽?你的父亲岂不是也吃也喝、也施行公平和公义麽?那时他得了福乐。他为困苦和穷乏人伸冤,那时就得了福乐。认识我不在乎此麽?“(耶22:15-16)

 

To know God is to acknowledge that He is the LORD in our life and to exercise  kindness, justice and righteousness in this world.  Do we love others, exemplifying  these as a result of our love for God?

认识神是要承认他是在我们生命中的主耶和华和要在这个世界上施行慈爱,公平和公义。我们是否爱别人,因我们对神的爱而彰显这些呢?
