恩惠与平安 [Grace and Peace]

书卷:腓利门书(新约)
作者:保罗

腓利门书3节:“愿恩惠、平安从上帝我们的父和主耶稣基督归于你们!”

今日默想:基督徒乃是得享上帝恩典的人。恩典乃是一件礼物,人凭着自己没有方法可以获得,因为人没有什么功绩配受恩典。恩典是平安之源,平安是恩典之果。人不先求上帝的恩典而想得到上帝的平安,这是不可能的。我们不该在上帝之外求平安。真平安的快捷方式乃是遵行上帝的旨意。

Forgiveness for Philemon, and me

Earlier, I wrote about unforgiveness being a poison that we drink for ourselves, and not one that we can give our betrayer. Paul calls Philemon to leave behind this potion for not only the sake of Christ and one’s brother, but also for one’s self. 303 more words

Introduction to Philemon

Philemon is a unique letter in the Bible. Paul is writing someone apparently just to ask for a personal favor. Yet the Holy Spirit inspired this and included it in our New Testaments for a reason. 255 more words
