神爱世人,甚至将他的独生子赐给他们,叫一切信他的,
不至灭亡,反得永生。(约3:16).

福音的视角 Theological Eyes

读经

保罗站在 亚略·巴古 当中,说:“众位 雅典 人哪,我看你们凡事很敬畏鬼神。 我游行的时候,观看你们所敬拜的,遇见一座坛,上面写着‘未识之神’。你们所不认识而敬拜的,我现在告诉你们。”  使徒行传 17:22-23 

So Paul, standing before the council, addressed them as follows: “Men of Athens, I notice that you are very religious in every way, for as I was walking along I saw your many shrines. And one of your altars had this inscription on it: ‘To an Unknown God.’ This God, whom you worship without knowing, is the one I’m telling you about.”  A C T S 1 7 : 2 2 – 2 3

默想 

你用什么样的眼光看你所在的社会和文化?你有没有发现,耶稣和一些流行的故事也是相关的?你试试用上帝的眼光看一下周围,思考一下你的生活和环境。有一个关于劫后余生的故事是不是很感人?因为上帝造我们,要我们追求永生。有一首关于关系破裂的歌曲是不是很真实?因为上帝也要求我们爱他,爱别人。

有一天,使徒保罗来到雅典。那里的人拜偶像,比较乱。但是,保罗也看到了他们在敬拜上帝(不知名),就找到了传讲耶稣的机会。我们当学会用上帝的眼光看这个世界,抓住传讲福音的机会。

Through what lens do you see your culture? Do you notice that the good news of Jesus is embedded in the popular stories of your society? Look with theological eyes for a moment. That great story about human survivalis so riveting because God created us to live life eternally. That great song about the heartache of a broken relationship is so true because God created us to live in communion with him and with others.

At one point in his life, the apostle Paul walked around the city of Athens.He could have seen everything wrong with the false system of worship there, but instead, as he observed that culture, he found connection points to share Jesus. We must learn to view our world through the theological eyes of the Lord.

祷告

祷告:耶稣,谢谢你和这个世界的相关性。让我有你的眼光,借着人的故事,宣讲你的福音。阿们。

Lord Jesus, thank you for making your message evident throughout the world. Give me eyes to see where your story breaks into the story of others. Amen.

行动

看一个电影、听一首歌曲,寻找它们和上帝的联系。

The next time you watch a popular movie or listen to a popular song, try to find the theological connection points or the gospel story embedded within.
