使徒行傳3:19.26 Acts3:19.26


19  Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out

19  所以,你們當悔改歸正,使你們的罪得以塗抹,這樣,那安舒的日子就必從主面前來到

26  God, having raised up his servant, sent him to you first, to bless you by turning every one of you from your wickedness."

26  神既興起他的僕人,(或作:兒子),就先差他到你們這裡來,賜福給你們,叫你們各人回轉,離開罪惡。」

really like Henry’s commentary. Why don’t people believe?

But when sinners are convinced of their sins, they will cry to the Lord for pardon; and to the penitent, converted, and believing, times of refreshment will come from the presence of the Lord. In a state of trial and probation, the glorified Redeemer will be out of sight, because we must live by faith in him.

We, by nature cleave to sin; the design of Divine grace is to turn us from it, that we may not only forsake, but hate it. Let none think that they can be happy by continuing in sin, when God declares that the blessing is in being turned from all iniquity. Let none think that they understand or believe the gospel, who only seek deliverance from the punishment of sin, but do not expect happiness in being delivered from sin itself. And let none expect to be turned from their sin, except by believing in, and receiving Christ the Son of God, as their wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption.            ——Matthew Henry
