经文: 在上帝的右边。(罗马书:34)

祂曾经被人藏视、被人弃绝,现在攡有蒙爱和尊荣的儿子地位。上帝的右边是高贵并受宠的地方。我们的主耶稣是祂百姓的代表。当祂为他们死时,他们就得到赦免。当祂为他们复活时,他们便得到自由。当祂坐在父上帝的右边时,他们就得到恩宠、尊荣与高贵。基督的复活与升天叫祂在所有百姓的地位升高,使他们被接纳并得荣耀。祂坐在上帝的右边,展现了基督被接纳成为我们救恩的确据。上帝接纳祂作为我们的代表,意思就是上帝接纳我们的灵魂,使我们免于被定罪,而得自由。“谁能定他们的罪呢?”(罗八:34)谁能定那些在耶稣里,在上帝右边的人之罪呢?右边是能力的地方。基督在上帝的右边,握有天上地下所有权能。元帅有如此权能,谁能敌挡祂的百姓呢?全能者若是帮助你,谁能毁灭你?全能者的翅膀若覆庇你,有什么利剑能伤害你?安心吧!耶稣是你的全胜王,祂已经将你的仇敌粉碎在祂的脚下。罪恶、死亡和地狱皆被祂击败了,而祂又作了你的代表,因此没有何物能将你毁灭。

Scripture: “Who is even at the right hand of God.”(Romans 8:34)

He who was once despised and rejected of men, now occupies the honourable position of a beloved and honoured Son. The right hand of God is the place of majesty and favour. Our Lord Jesus is his people's representative. When he died for them they had rest; he rose again for them, they had liberty; when he sat down at his Father's right hand, they had favour, and honour, and dignity. The raising and elevation of Christ is the elevation, the acceptance, and enshrinement, the glorifying of all his people, for he is their head and representative. This sitting at the right hand of God, then, is to be viewed as the acceptance of the person of the Surety, the reception of the Representative, and therefore, the acceptance of our souls. O saint, see in this thy sure freedom from condemnation. “Who is he that condemneth?” Who shall condemn the men who are in Jesus at the right hand of God?

The right hand is the place of power. Christ at the right hand of God hath all power in heaven and in earth. Who shall fight against the people who have such power vested in their Captain? O my soul, what can destroy thee if Omnipotence be thy helper? If the aegis of the Almighty cover thee, what sword can smite thee? Rest thou secure. If Jesus is thine all-prevailing King, and hath trodden thine enemies beneath his feet; if sin, death, and hell are all vanquished by him, and thou art represented in him, by no possibility canst thou be destroyed.

“Jesus’ tremendous name

Puts all our foes to flight:

Jesus, the meek, the angry Lamb,

A Lion is in fight.

“By all hell's host withstood;

We all hell's host o'erthrow;

And conquering them, through Jesus’ blood

We still to conquer go.”
