因信稱義的真理 Justified by Faith

如今卻蒙神的恩典, 因基督耶穌的救贖, 就白白的稱義。這是我們最喜歡說的, 救恩是免費的禮物, 我們是白白的稱義。但我們不要忘記這是因為基督的救贖, 沒有基督的救贖就不會有免費的禮物。什麼是基督的救贖? 神設立耶穌作挽回祭, 是憑著耶穌的血, 藉著人的信, 要顯明神的義, 因為祂用忍耐的心, 寬容人先時所犯的罪, 這告訴我們基督的救贖三個重點: 1.挽回祭 2.耶穌的血 3.人的信。保羅告訴我們, 我們是沒有可誇口的地方, 因為我們得救不是用立功之法, 意思是靠好行為, 作公德; 我們得救乃是用信主之法, 全是恩典!

We often say that salvation is a gift and we are justified freely but often forget the cost of this redemption. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement so that we may be saved through faith. In this message, Rev. Jeremiah Cheung reveals the three main aspects of Christ’s redemption—the atonement sacrifice, the blood of Jesus, and the faith of man.

1. Start with a prayer

2. Engage one another (15-30 mins)

  • In the 10 commandments (Exodus 20:1-17), how do you rate yourself in terms of abiding them? Please rate 10 as the highest and 0 as the lowest.

3. Engage the mind (15-20 mins)

  • Read the passage. What does Paul say about righteousness?
  • What is the importance of God’s law? How does it reflect our sinfulness?
  • What does it mean to be ‘justified by faith’?
    (Note to leaders: You may also ask your members what questions they have from reading the passage to encourage them to ask and discuss.)

4. Engage the heart (15-20 mins)

  • For you, what does a person who tries to earn his salvation look like?
  • What are some instances when you see yourself as a righteous or sinless person? How can this attitude change?

5. Engage the hands (15-20 mins)

  • What are some ways you can live out the things you have learned from our discussion?
  • To whom can you share what you have learned from the passage? How will you do it?

6. Engage with God in prayer (20-30 mins)

  • Give thanks to God for the gift of salvation that comes only through faith in Jesus and not through something that we need to earn by good works.
  • Seek God’s forgiveness for our self-righteous heart.
  • Ask the Holy Spirit to reflect our sins as we read His word that we may seek to obey His will and live out His love.
