Our Lord the Object of Faith for Salvation 相信我們的主,便可得蒙拯救“(Acts 使徒行傳 10:36-38)

You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, announcing the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all. … how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.

神藉著耶穌基督(他是萬有的主)傳和平的福音,把這道傳給以色列人。… 神怎樣用聖靈和能力膏立拿撒勒人耶穌。他到各處行善事,醫好所有被魔鬼壓制的人,因為神與他同在。

Christ must be Lord or He will not be Saviour; the Lord is the object of faith for salvation! No one believing on the Saviour could later take up the matter of His lordship and settle it at his own convenience. It is doubtful whether any man can be saved who comes to Christ for His help but with no intention of obeying Him. Our first saving contact with Christ does not bring perfect knowledge of all He is to us. Ages upon ages will hardly be long enough to allow us to experience all the riches of His grace. As we discover new meanings in His titles and make them ours we will grow in the knowledge of our Lord and the many forms of love He wears exalted on his throne!


Prayer: God of Trinity, praise you for Jesus Christ being indeed Lord of all who believe/trust in Him alone for salvation, both Jews and non-Jews. Thank you for reminding us through Peter’s point that those like Cornelius fearing you and doing what is right do need to become Christians but need not feel excluded from your house because of their national background. May your peace, which transcends all understanding and affirms your holy presence/acceptance, as well as the leading of the Holy Spirit guard our hearts and our minds in Christ to follow Him closely. Amen.
