Bible Text: Romans 4:13-25 | Preacher: Kaibin | 羅馬書4:13-25
13因為神應許亞伯拉罕和他後裔,必得承受世界,不是因律法,乃是因信而得的義。
14若是屬乎律法的人才得為後嗣,信就歸於虛空,應許也就廢棄了。
15因為律法是惹動忿怒的(或作:叫人受刑的);那裡沒有律法,那裡就沒有過犯。
16所以人得為後嗣是本乎信,因此就屬乎恩,叫應許定然歸給一切後裔;不但歸給那屬乎律法的,也歸給那效法亞伯拉罕之信的。
17亞伯拉罕所信的,是那叫死人復活、使無變為有的神,他在主面前作我們世人的父。如經上所記:我已經立你作多國的父。
18他在無可指望的時候,因信仍有指望,就得以作多國的父,正如先前所說,你的後裔將要如此。
19他將近百歲的時候,雖然想到自己的身體如同已死,撒拉的生育已經斷絕,他的信心還是不軟弱;
20並且仰望神的應許,總沒有因不信心裡起疑惑,反倒因信心裡得堅固,將榮耀歸給神,
21且滿心相信神所應許的必能做成。
22所以,這就算為他的義。
23算為他義的這句話不是單為他寫的,
24也是為我們將來得算為義之人寫的,就是我們這信神使我們的主耶穌從死裡復活的人。
25耶穌被交給人,是為我們的過犯;復活,是為叫我們稱義(或作:耶穌是為我們的過犯交付了,是為我們稱義復活了)。
Romans 4:13-25
The Promise Realized Through Faith
13 For the promise to Abraham and his offspring that he would be heir of the world did not come through the law but through the righteousness of faith. 14 For if it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void. 15 For the law brings wrath, but where there is no law there is no transgression.
16 That is why it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his offspring—not only to the adherent of the law but also to the one who shares the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all, 17 as it is written, “I have made you the father of many nations”—in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist. 18 In hope he believed against hope, that he should become the father of many nations, as he had been told, “So shall your offspring be.” 19 He did not weaken in faith when he considered his own body, which was as good as dead (since he was about a hundred years old), or when he considered the barrenness[a] of Sarah’s womb. 20 No unbelief made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, 21 fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised. 22 That is why his faith was “counted to him as righteousness.” 23 But the words “it was counted to him” were not written for his sake alone, 24 but for ours also. It will be counted to us who believe in him who raised from the dead Jesus our Lord, 25 who was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification.
