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).

双语灵修丨葛培理布道团:改变世界(2019.2.9)

耶和华啊,你是我所盼望的;从我年幼,你是我所依靠的。诗71:5

到今天,我们绝大多数人还在讨论古希腊哲学家柏拉图、亚里斯多德那时候的问题:我们从哪里来?我们为什么活着?我们到哪里去?我们努力在寻求答案和出路,可惜我们一直找不到。

但是,十字架就是在这个混乱和困惑的世界被高高竖立,给黑暗和怀疑的时代带来希望。在十字架上,基督不仅把我们和上帝的关系重修修好,也回答了我们内心深处的很多问题。借着耶稣基督,我们找到了自己的新的身份:被饶恕的罪人。我们同样找到另外我们的未来:与永生上帝同在!也找到了我们活着的目的:爱上帝,尽心尽意尽力去爱他。永远不要低估基督在十字架上的工作。借着十字架,救赎得以完成,我们的生命、我们的世界,都得到转变和更新。十字架改变你的生命了么?

Power to Change the World.

You are my hope, O Lord God;

You are my trust from my youth.

Psalm 71:5

We still wrestle with the same problems that preoccupied Plato and Aristotle centuries ago: Where did we come from? Why are we here? Where are we going? We search for answers, but the signs all seem to say “no exit.”

But the Cross boldly stands high against the confusion of our world, a beacon of hope in the midst of darkness and doubt. In the Cross, Christ not only bridged the gap between God and us, but there we find the answers to life’s deepest questions. There we discover our true identity: forgiven sinners who now belong to God. There we discover out true destiny: a glorious eternity with God in Heaven. There we discover our on true purpose: to love God and serve Him with all our might.

Never underestimate what Christ did for us through the Cross. By it our salvation was won, and by it out lives – and our world – can be transformed. What difference does the cross make in your life?
