Proud People Don’t Say Thanks 驕傲的人不懂得感恩

Audio Sermon 聽講道

羅馬書1:18~23

18 神的震怒,從天上向所有不虔不義的人顯露出來,就是向那些以不義壓制真理的人顯露出來。19 神的事情,人所能知道的,在他們裡面原是明顯的,因為 神已經向他們顯明了。20其實自從創世以來, 神那看不見的事,就如他永恆的大能和神性,都是看得見的,就是從他所造的萬物中可以領悟,叫人沒有辦法推諉。21因為他們雖然知道 神,卻不尊他為 神,也不感謝他,反而心思變為虛妄,愚頑的心就迷糊了。22他們自以為是聰明的,卻成了愚蠢的。23他們用必朽壞的人、飛禽、走獸和昆蟲的形象,取代了永不朽壞的 神的榮耀。

Romans 1:18~23

18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

一、萬物教導我們上帝配得所有的感恩 Creation Teaches That God Deserves All Thanksgiving

Ÿ             1諸天述說 神的榮耀,穹蒼傳揚他的作為。2天天發出言語,夜夜傳出知識。

1The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. 2Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.」(詩篇19:1-2 Psalms 19:1-2)

Ÿ               20其實自從創世以來, 神那看不見的事,就如他永恆的大能和神性,都是看得見的,就是從他所造的萬物中可以領悟,叫人沒有辦法推諉。20For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse(羅馬書1:20 Romans1:20)

宇宙萬物是一本精彩萬分的神學課本 Creation Is a Great Theological Textbook

Ÿ        我必須承認:所有的一切都是從這位造物主而來   的禮物。

Ÿ        上帝完全不欠我們任何的東西!

但是,我可以拿什麼獻給我們的造物主呢?

感恩是創造的信息 Thanksgiving Is the Message of Creation

Ÿ          凡是以感謝為祭獻上的,就是尊敬我。The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me(詩篇50:23 Psalms50:23)

Ÿ          當恩典感動我們的心時,我們就很自然的會感恩。

二、所有的人都虧缺了這個呼召Everyone Has Fallen Short of This Calling

罪取代了上帝的榮耀 Sin Replaces God’s Glory

Ÿ              因為世人都犯了罪,虧缺了 神的榮耀,for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (羅馬書3:23 Romans 3:23)

 驕傲的人討厭談論創造的這一課 Proud People Hate the Lesson of Creation

Ÿ              驕傲的人不懂得感恩。

Ÿ              驕傲的人不需要恩典。

 我們不可以隨便論斷別人We should not judge others

三、神所要的是憂傷痛悔的心 God desires a broken and contrite heart

 

不是表面的讚美使我們感覺良好,而是因著上帝的管教使我們得到真實地喜悅 Not Self-Congratulation but Surgery Leads to Joy

Ÿ              他們草率地醫治我子民的損傷,說:『平安了!平安了!』其實沒有平安。They have healed the wound of my people lightly, saying, “Peace, peace,” when there is no peace.(耶立米書6:14Jeremiah 6:14)

 

上帝賜給謙卑的人與憂傷痛悔的人恩典 God gives grace to the people who have contrite and humble hearts

Ÿ              神所要的祭,就是破碎的靈;神啊!破碎痛悔的心,你必不輕看。The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.(詩篇51:17,Psalms 51:17)

Ÿ              因為依照 神的意思而有的憂傷,可以生出沒有懊悔的悔改,以致得救。For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret(哥林多後書7:10,2 Corinthians 7:10)

四、結論:三項真理

1.    我們是神所創造的。我們的一切也是祂所賜的恩典。我們唯一的責任就是要真心的敬拜、榮耀祂。

2.    我們每個人都虧缺了這個責任。自以為聰明,搶奪了上帝的榮耀。

3.    因著上帝的恩典,我們可以透過憂傷痛悔的心向神悔改而得以信靠祂、得到拯救。
