第五天 靈修──Day 5 devotional “All the families”

For English version, please refer to the latter part of this page

亞伯拉罕令人驚訝的故事——在這個故事時間點,他還被稱為亞伯蘭,他似乎並不感到驚訝,他沒有問:“誰?是我嗎?”

根據創世記十二章的記載,亞伯拉罕似乎將這些應許視為理所當然的事情,但是,他聽到的話是令人震驚的。一個已婚但沒有孩子的人,被告知(在第2節中)他將成為一個國家的父親。然後,在第3節中,他 —— 間接地說,是他出生的國家 —— 將擁有特殊地位。那些善待他的人將被祝福,褻瀆他的人將受咒詛。

然後,最令人驚訝的是:“地上的萬族都要因你得福。”

這個大膽的承諾,直到許多個世紀後,才碰到同樣令人匪夷所思的承諾:天使出現在一位名叫馬利亞的處女面前,宣告她將懷孕生子,這孩子的國沒有盡頭(路加福音一33)。

想像一下,如果亞伯拉罕看到所有這一切都在他面前展開:他的曾孫約瑟夫在埃及成為這個國家的第二位掌權者;他的後裔摩西帶領他的百姓離開埃及;他的後裔約書亞帶領他的百姓征服應許之地;耶穌來帶來祝福;使徒保羅來宣告這個祝福確實屬於所有的民族,不僅僅是亞伯拉罕的後裔。

這所有的民族中有:索馬裡人、南侗族、哈扎拉人、波斯尼亞人、敘利亞人、瓦雅納人、你和我。除了那些不願敞開心扉接受這份祝福的人,沒有人會被排除在外。

你呢?你正在請求主把誰帶入祂的家?我們願意與你一同禱告。你可以上網到 https://ktwr.org/prayer-request/, 把他/她的名字發過來,或是發送電子郵件到 [email protected]

藉著亞伯拉罕的那位後裔,萬族都要得福。

禱告

神我們的主啊,通過亞伯拉罕那位後裔,就是後來的耶穌,你帶給我們祝福。為此我們贊美你!感謝你,因這份祝福是為地上所有的族群而預備的!

Day 5 devotional “All the families”

The surprising thing about Abraham—or Abram, as he was still known to be at this point in the story—is that he didn’t seem to be surprised. There’s no “Who, me?” moment.

At this point in Genesis 12, Abraham seems to take the promises as a matter of course. Yet the words he hears are astounding. Here’s a man, married but with no children, being told (in verse 2) that he will be the father of a nation. And then, in verse 3, that he—by implication, the nation he fathers—will have special status. People who treat his people well shall be blessed. People who dishonor his people will be cursed.

Then, most astonishing of all: “In you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Whoa! In terms of audacious promises, that probably would not be matched until many centuries later, when an angel appeared to a girl named Mary, a virgin, and proclaimed that she would give birth to a child whose kingdom will have no end (Luke 1:33).

Think of what Abraham would have seen if all of it had been laid out before him: His great-grandson Joseph rising to the No. 2 position in Egypt; his descendant Moses leading his people out of Egypt; his descendant Joshua leading his people to conquer the Promised Land; Jesus coming to bring the blessing; and the apostle Paul coming to announce that the blessing really did belong to all peoples, not just to Abraham’s descendants.

To all peoples: Japanese, Somalis, Turks, Syrians, Bosnians, Hausa, Wayana, Trio, you, me. No one is excluded except those who will not open their hearts and receive the blessing.

How about you? Who are you asking the Lord to bring into his family? We’d like to join you in that. Send a prayer request with the person’s first name via https://twr360.org/prayer-request, and our staff will pray for him or her within 24 hours.

Through the seed of Abraham, all are blessed.

PRAYER

Lord God, we praise you for the blessing through the seed of Abraham, which became fully known in Jesus. Thank you that this blessing is for all of the families on earth.
