標 題： 祂不愛惜自己的兒子
經 節： 神既不愛惜自己的兒子，為我們眾人舍了，豈不也把萬物和祂一同白白地賜給我們嗎？（羅馬書八章32節）
He Spared Not His Own Son
He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how
shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? (Romans 8:32)
If you ever feel that you are so insignificant that God does not care
about you or that He does not want to listen to your prayers, you will be
encouraged by Romans 8:32. There, you are assured that your heavenly Father
loves you unconditionally. There was nothing so precious to Him that He would
not give it up in order to provide for your salvation. When the Father gave His
precious Son to save you, He proved once for all that His love is boundless.
The apostle Paul concluded that if God would not spare His own Son in
order to provide for our salvation, how would He not willingly give anything
else at His disposal in order to care for us? He sacrificed so much to give us
eternal life that we can rest secure in the knowledge that He also wants to
give us abundant life (John 10:10). In light of what God did for us at the
cross, should we not approach the throne of grace with confidence? God’s
response to our prayers is not based upon our worthiness but upon His love and
grace. Our confidence in prayer comes not from who we are but from who He is.
Nothing we could ask of Him could ever compare with the price He paid for us at
How wonderful to know that God loves us so much! We can live with
confidence and anticipation knowing that almighty God is willing not only to
give us eternal life, but also to help us experience it fully!
