昨天讀這段被震懾住…羅馬書9章31~33節(信息本)

「And Israel, who seemed so interested in reading and talking about what God was doing, missed it. How could they miss it? Because instead of trusting God, they took over. They were absorbed in what they themselves were doing. They were so absorbed in their "God projects" that they didn't notice God right in front of them, like a huge rock in the middle of the road. And so they stumbled into him and went sprawling. Isaiah (again!) gives us the metaphor for pulling this together:
Careful! I've put a huge stone on the road to Mount Zion, a stone you can't get around. But the stone is me! If you're looking for me, you'll find me on the way, not in the way.」
和合本:
「但以色列人追求律法的義,反得不著律法的義。 這是甚麼緣故呢?是因為他們不憑著信心求,只憑著行為求;他們正跌在那絆腳石上。 就如經上所記: 我在錫安放一塊絆腳的石頭,跌人的磐石; 信靠他的人必不至於羞愧。」

重點摘錄:Israel were absorebed in what they themselves were doing, and didn't notice God right in front of them, like a huge rock in the middle of the road, they just stumbled into the huge rock, as expected. But the stone is Him! If we're looking for Him, We'll find Him ON the way, not IN the way.

尋求神是在路途「中」尋見!而不是知道「在」哪條路上!
別再用方法做事了…
別再想用操練外表的敬虔來成為聖潔的裝飾或以為可以換得祝福了…
單單活在祂的道(word)路(way)中吧…
否則房角石對你來說不過是絆腳石!
信靠祂人必不至於羞愧!

(註:此處「羞愧」與羅五「患難生忍耐……盼望不至於『羞恥』」原文同字)
