0816 – The Divine Infusion of Joy 属天注入的喜乐

Romans 5:1-2 (NKJV)Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we standChristians have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, not by human effort as it is purely an act of love that God sent Jesus to reconcile us to Himself. God made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us so that we can have the righteousness of Christ. We are justified by faith when we believe that Jesus has taken our place on the cross. Jesus’ death has satisfied the wrath of God and dealt with the sin issue that separated us from God.

Through Jesus, we also have access into this grace in which we stand, which means access into a wonderful standing in divine favour. In other words, being in Christ, the very favour in which Christ Himself stands has been extended to us. We are the highly favoured ones because we are hidden in Christ. God sees Christ only when He looks at us, and because He is well pleased with Jesus, He is also well pleased with us.

Standing grace is the grace that God gives us to stand in faith and live the Christian life, through which He also gives us ability for the various areas of our lives. Whatever you need to know, be or do, God wants to give you grace you in such a way that you will have His supernatural ability in that area—your work, homemaking, children’s education or spiritual life. We all need God’s grace to live. Without it, we will eventually burn out and resent the things we once loved.

It is through faith that we stand in grace, because faith helps us to be connected to the vine and allows the Word to abide in us. Meanwhile, God’s grace gives us the ability to have faith, to know, to grow, to think, to give, to be and to do all the things God wants for us.

Faith will begin to arise when you believe in God’s unmerited favour and the abundant grace towards us that caused us to have divine favour. It will also grant us strength and favour with men. If this is what we stand upon and believe, we are able to bear the fruit of joy!

We believe that God’s grace on which we stand makes a way of breakthrough for us and infuses His grace in the form of joy into our lives. This joy is from God, connected with God, given by God and sustained by God through the influence of the Holy Spirit. It’s a divine infusion of joy!

Sermon Series: Joy – The Fruit of the Holy Spirit


属天注入的喜乐

罗马书 5:1-2我 们 既 因 信 称 义 , 就 藉 着 我 们 的 主 耶 稣 基 督 得 与 神 相 和 。 我 们 又 藉 着 祂 , 因 信 得 进 入 现 在 所 站 的 这 恩 典 中 , 并 且 欢 欢 喜 喜 盼 望 神 的 荣 耀 。

基督徒与神相和,是通过我们的主耶稣基督,不是通过人的努力:因为神差派了耶稣使我们与祂和好,这纯粹是一种爱的举动。神 使 那 无 罪 的 , 替 我 们 成 为 罪 , 好 叫 我 们 拥有基督 的 义 。当相信耶稣在十字架上替代了我们的位置,我们就因信称义。耶稣的死让神的忿怒得以满足,并处理了因罪使我们与神分离的问题。

通过耶稣,我们也得进入我们所站立的恩典,这意味着得进入奇妙属天的恩惠。换句话说:在基督里,基督自己所享有的恩惠已经扩展到我们了。因为藏在基督里面,所以我们是极受宠爱的:当神看我们,祂只看见基督;而且因着对耶稣的喜悦,祂也同样喜悦我们。

站立的恩典乃是指:神赐我们持守信心、 过基督徒的生活的恩典;透过这恩典, 神也赐给我们在生活各个领域的能力。无论你需要知道什么、需要成为什么、或需要做什么,神都想以某种方式赐你恩典,让你在该领域中有祂超自然的能力,包括在你的工作领域、家庭经营领域、孩子的教育领域或属灵生命领域。我们都需要神的恩典才能活下去;没有它,我们最终会被耗尽并憎恨那些我们曾爱过的事。

靠着信心,我们站在恩典之中,因为信心帮助我们与葡萄树相联结,也让神的话语在我们里面。同时,神的恩典使我们有能力拥有信心、了解、成长、思考、给予、成为和做神想要我们做的所有事情。

当你相信神对我们丰盛的恩惠和恩典,使我们拥有属天的恩宠时,信心就会开始加强。这也赋予我们力量和蒙人恩宠。如果这是我们所持守和相信的,我们就能结出喜乐的果子!

我们相信:所站立的神的恩典为我们提供了突破的途径,并以喜乐的形式将祂的恩典注入我们的生活。这喜乐来自于神、联结于神、蒙神所赐并通过圣灵的影响而得以维持,是属天注入的喜乐!
