感谢神,因他有说不尽的恩赐。哥林多后书9:15

Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!  2 Corinthians 9:15, NIV

人有两个很重要的属灵需要。一个是赦免,一个是良善。有意无意之间,人都在期待这两个东西。人在迷茫、孤独、恐惧、愤怒的时候,他知道需要赦免。神听了人的祷告:要赦免,恩典显明在十字架上。神差遣独生儿子来世界为我们舍了,我们的罪因此得赦免,这是神救赎的恩典。任何人都可以得到这个恩典,如果他悔改认罪接受基督为心中救主。保罗称之为:神的不可描述的恩典。神同时又听到了我们另外一个祷告:要良善。在五旬节,神回应了。神不要我们因着信来到基督的面前,却过着失败、失落、失望的生活。他“用大能成就你们一切所羡慕的良善和一切因信心所做的工夫, 叫我们主耶稣的名在你们身上得荣耀,你们也在他身上得荣耀,都照着我们的 神并主耶稣基督的恩。”(帖后 1:11-12) 

如果我们希望过着得救的生活和得胜的生活,我们就需要神给我们的两个恩典:耶稣的工作和圣灵的工作。这样,神就满足了人的两大需要:赦免和良善。我一个朋友说:我需要耶稣基督为永生的需要,我需要圣灵为里面的需要。他应该加一句:只有这样,我才能在外面活出完全的生命。

Man has two great spiritual needs. One is for forgiveness. The other is for goodness. Consciously or unconsciously, his inner being longs for both. There are times when man actually cries for them, even though in his restlessness, confusion, loneliness, fear, and pressures he may not know what he is crying for.God heard the first cry for help, that cry for forgiveness, and answered it a Calvary. God sent His only Son into the world to die for our sins, so that we might be forgiven. This is a gift for us-God’s gift of salvation. This gift is a permanent legacy for everyone who truly admits he has “fallen short” and sinned. It is for everyone who reaches out and accepts God’s gift by receiving Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Paul calls it God’s indescribable” gift.But God also heard our second cry, that cry for goodness, and answered it a Pentecost. God does not want us to come to Christ by faith, and then lead a life of defeat, discouragement, and dissension. Rather, He wants to “fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power; in order that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you” (2 Thessalonians 1:11-12, NAB).

If we are to live a life of sanity in our modern world, if we wish to be men and women who can live victoriously, we need this tow-sided gift God has offered us: first, the work of the Son of God for us; second, the work of the Spirit of God in us. In this way God has answered mankind’s two great cries: the cry for forgiveness and the cry for goodness.As a friend of mine has said, “I need Jesus Christ for my eternal life, and the Holy Spirit of God for my internal life.” He might have added, “…So I can live my external life to the fullest.”
