12/06/2020 唯獨恩典 (Grace Alone)

by 鍾卓權牧師 (Rev. Bernie Chung)


「唯獨恩典」(Grace Alone) 蒙 神拯救這一宣言,可以說是宗教改革的中心,而改革家他們指出,蒙恩得拯救的人在神面前之所以被稱為義,完全是因為主耶穌基督的救贖工作,這救恩是祂白白地賜給我們的,人無法憑自身努力,也沒有任何方法,依靠人的行為,或行何樣的功德而能換取的救恩,稱義得救完全是 神的恩典。


在1689 年的 Baptist Confession 《浸信會信仰宣言》 中第11 章第3 節說:「基督憑著祂的順服和受死完全清償了凡如此被稱為義之人的罪債,並為這些被稱為義的人獻上了衪自己為祭,藉著祂在十字架上所流的寶血,擔當了本來屬於他們的刑罰,使祂成為適當的、真實的、圓滿的祭來滿足父神的公義。希伯來書 10:14 節說:「因為祂一次獻祭、便叫那得以成聖的人永遠完全」。


父神為我們賜下基督,憑借基督完全的順服,以聖潔無罪之身滿足天父的要本,被上帝悅納,這並非因為人本身有任何功德,羅馬書 8:32 節說:「神既不愛惜自己的兒子為我們眾人捨了、豈不也把萬物和他一同白白的賜給我們麼」。以弗所書 2:8 節又說:「你們得救是本乎恩、也因著信、這並不是出於自己、乃是 神所賜的」。換一句話說,救恩完全在乎上帝的恩典、救恩完全是神的工作,是人原本不配得的恩典,恩典是上帝白白賜下的。


我們要承認自己的敗壞、缺乏、軟弱、虛空,並且願意迴轉歸向上帝,祂就賜我們權柄作神的兒女。(約翰福音1:12)。所以我們蒙恩得救的弟兄姊妹們、今天我們可以得被稱義是惟獨出於白白來自神的的恩典,為的是叫 神絕對的公義和祂豐盛的恩慈在罪人稱義上可以得著榮耀。「唯獨恩典」(Sola gratia)指出,赦罪、永生和救恩臨到我們身上,唯獨是上帝所賜的,靠著這恩典上帝使世人從罪惡中得到拯救,並給與信徒永生的應許。願上帝豐盛的救贖恩

典明顯地彰顯在我們身上,常與我們同在。阿們!


Translation:


The salvation of "Grace Alone" can be said to be the central theme of the Reformation. The reformers point out that those saved by grace can be justified before God because of the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ who freely gives us salvation. No one can exchange salvation with any merit or good deeds. Justification and salvation are pure grace.


The "Declaration of Faith" contained in the Baptist Confession of 1689 (ref: Chapter 11, Section 3) says: "Christ, by his obedience and death, did fully discharge the debt of all those who are justified; and did, by the sacrifice of himself in the blood of his cross,

undergoing in their stead the penalty due to them, make a proper, real, and full satisfaction to God’s justice in their behalf; yet, in as much as he was given by the Father for them, and his obedience and satisfaction accepted in their stead, and both freely, not for anything in them, their justification is only of free grace, that both

the exact justice and rich grace of God might be glorified in the justification of sinners." Hebrews 10:14 says: “For by one sacrifice He has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.”


God the Father gives Christ to us, and He accepts Christ's obedience and fulfillment of His will that have made salvation possible, not because of any merit in man. Romans 8:32 says: “He who did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us all—how

will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things?” Ephesians 2:8 also says: "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.” In other words, salvation depends entirely on God's grace, and

salvation is entirely God's work. This undeserving grace for man is freely given by God.


We must acknowledge our corruption, inadequacy, weakness, emptiness, and injustice, and be willing to return to God and receive Him as our Savior. John 1:12 says: “Yet to all who did, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become

children of God.” Therefore, all brothers and sisters who have been saved must acknowledge that our salvation is by grace only. As we have been justified by this free grace, God's absolute righteousness and rich grace can be glorified in the justification of us, the sinners. "Sola gratia" (grace only) points out that forgiveness, eternal life, and salvation are free gifts from God. God saves the world from sin and gives believers the promise of eternal life. May God's abundant redemptive grace be manifested clearly in us and be with us always. Amen!

你可知把耶穌帶到曠野的並非是撒旦嗎?路加福音第四章說:「耶穌被聖靈充滿,從約旦河回來,聖靈將他引到曠野,四十天受魔鬼的試探。」是聖靈領耶穌到那裡的!為什麼呢?因為到了那時候將發生一些事。而這些有迫切性、壓倒性、擠壓性、和有改進性的事之出現令耶穌啓動了祂的事工。你們當中有多少人知道耶穌在那試探之前並無行過神蹟或做過什麼著名的大事呢?這對我們今天來說究竟當中有著什麼的智慧呢……也許你發現自己現正處於考

作為信徒,我們被神呼召來講述真理、尋求真理和實踐真理。畢竟,耶穌說:「你們必曉得真理,真理必叫你們得以自由。」(約翰福音 8:32)。但誰才是真理?答案就是耶穌。在約翰福音 14 章 6 節,「耶穌說我就是道路、真理、生命;若不藉著我,沒有人能到父那裡去。」耶穌在每一方面都是真理的代表和化身。因為耶穌就是真理,祂也向我們實淺了如何尋求、講述和實踐真理的榜樣。 在寫給歌羅西教會的信中,保羅和提摩太熱

主耶穌在馬太福音 5:23-24節說:「所以,你在祭壇上獻禮物的時候,若想起弟兄向你懷怨,就把禮物留在壇前,先去同弟兄和好,然後來獻禮物。」換言之與人和睦相處比在教會事奉或敬拜奉獻更為重要。但是,如果我們的「鄰舍」真的對我們有意見,而我們認為是不合情理、怎麼辦呢?我們採取解決分歧之前,會忍讓到什麼程度呢? 在三日前的會員大會中,有一位弟兄提起馬太福音 18章,15-17 節是說:「倘若你的弟兄得罪
