經文:希伯來書第十一章
鑰節:「信就是所望之事的實底,是未見之事的確據。」(11:1)
提要

        如果我們在現今教會和基督徒中間來做一次民意調查,徵詢有關「信心的定義」;可能回收的定義就像眾說紛紜般的各說各話。其中得到不同的訊息,從「信心就是信仰」到「信心等於感覺」。或許還會聽到類似有一次在主日學堛漲~青男孩所下的定義──「信心乃是去相信、接受明知不真實的事。」到底信心的定義何在?

        希伯來書作者給信心的定義說「信就是所望之事的實底和確據。」這盼望(雖然還未看見過)就是第六節中說的「信有上帝,且信上帝賞賜那尋求祂的人。」這期望遠超過幻想式的奢望,因根基立在「藉兩件不更改的事」上面,上帝的應許和誓約,就格外顯得「如同靈魂的錨,又堅固又牢靠」(6:13~20)。

        因此,信心實在奠基於眼雖未見,卻同時又堅固又牢靠的實體和確據之上。還不夠清楚嗎?我們舉一個很好的實例。作者在本章內就舉了好幾個例子。首先,他提到先祖挪亞,蒙上帝指示他未見的事(此例中,上帝所賜的許諾並指示將會來的洪水之災。),而建造方舟。連一滴雨水也沒有落下的當時,又持續多年的時間在修建一隻巨型方舟,真是相當愚昧而不智的事。然而,在以信心為本之情形下,挪亞和當世代周圍的人想法和行動均大不相同。方舟就是未見之事的實體和確據;挪亞的方舟就代表了他的信心,顯明了他的辨識和判斷的實力。

        作者繼續引述許多以信為本,以致於在當代活出信心見證的信心偉人。每個信心的實例,都可見到他們因深信不疑而帶出信心的行動,因著所等候的盼望,驅使行為並導致改變和成就。信心的結果就是改變事情。

        Soren Kierkegaard的至理名言:「對某教義僅只有理智上的認同是不夠的,真正的基督教信仰,絕對包含著改變和完成。」這句話詮釋信心真是唯妙唯肖。我們實在應該「行道」,不應只作個「聽道」專家。

禱告

        父上帝,我們堶措磞b缺乏信心──相信在您沒有難成的事──的見識和能力。幫補我們的小信、遲信、不信、主啊!我們願意相信您。奉主耶穌聖名,阿們!

Scriptures:Read Hebrews 11
Key Verse:"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."(Hebrews 11:1)
Overview

        If we were to poll your local church and its members for definitions of faith, we might get as many definitions as people giving them. We'd hear everything from, "faith is religion" to "faith is a feeling". Or we might hear something like a young boy's definition in Sunday School one day, "faith is believing something you know isn't true!" What is faith?

        Look at the writer's definition — faith is something: the substance and the evidence of something we hope for. That hope (as yet "unseen") is that God "exists and... rewards those who earnestly seek Him" (v.6). And the hope is more than wishful thinking — it is rooted in "two unchangeable things", His promise and His oath, that make it "an anchor for the soul, firm and secure" (6:13-20).

        So faith is something substantial and evidential, based on something unseen but at the same time "firm and secure". Still a bit fuzzy? We need a good illustration. The writer gives us several. First of all, he refers to Noah who, on the basis of "things not yet seen" (in this case, a promise from God that there would be a flood), "built an ark". It seems pretty silly to be building a huge boat and to take scores of years to do so when you haven't even seen a drop of rain! But, on the basis of hope, Noah acted differently than his neighbours. The ark was the substance, or evidence, of something he hadn't seen as yet. In a very real sense, Noah's ark was his faith.

        The writer then goes on to cite many other examples of people who acted on the basis of hope. In each case, they did something because of what they believed. Their hope spurred an action which became the cause of change. Faith always causes change.

        Soren Kierkegaard captured this truth well when he said, "Mere mental assent to a doctrine is not enough. Where there is not transformation there is no Christianity". We've got to be more than "hearers of the word" — we've got to be "doers".

Prayer

        Father, we acknowledge our lack of faith and inability in ourselves to believe that all things are possible. Help our unbelief! Lord we believe!
