Living Stone活石


The apostle Peter described Jesus as a living stone.

He wrote, “Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” (1 Peter 2:4-5).

Precious in the eyes of the Father is the sacrifice of the Rock of our salvation.

Christ is the enduring stone upon which the Father has built our salvation and the only foundation for meaningful life.

It is only as our lives are built upon His strength that we will be able to endure the harshness of life in a fallen world.

。。。

使徒彼得将耶稣形容成活石。

他说:「主乃活石,固然是被人所弃的,却是被上帝所拣选、所宝贵的。你们来到主面前,也就像活石,被建造成为灵宫, 作圣洁的祭司, 藉着耶稣基督奉献神所悦纳的灵祭。」(彼得前书2章4-5节)。

这救赎磐石的牺牲,是天父眼中的珍宝。

基督就是那永久的磐石,而天父将我们的救恩,建立在这唯一根基上,让我们藉此得着新生命。

唯有将生命建立在祂的大能之上,我们才能在这堕落的世界中,熬过生命中严苛的考验。
