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:​天国之旅(2019.11.27)

主必救我脱离诸般的凶恶,也必救我进他的天国。提后4:18

The Lord will . . . preserve me for His heavenly kingdom. 2 Timothy 4:18

进天国犹如一趟旅行。首先,你要决定去;其次,你要买票。但是,你怎么买票?你可以通过努力让自己成为好人,作为票吗?你可以通过经常去教会显得虔诚,作为票么?你可以通过乐善好施,作为票么?圣经说这些都不可以。因为这张票太昂贵了远远超乎任何人可以支付的价格。

那是不是说我们买不到票,去不了天国?不是的。因为已经有人帮我们买票了。这个人就是耶稣基督。而他买票付出的价格,是他自己在十字架上的宝血。现在,他把票送给我们,免费的!

那,我们为什么要拒绝这张票?为什么要设法去买票?耶稣的邀请依然有效:来!口渴的人也当来;愿意的,都可以白白取生命的水喝。(启22:17

Preparing for Heaven is much like going on a journey. First, you must decide you want to go there. Next you must purchase your ticket.

But wait! How will you purchase it? Can you buy it by being a good person? Or going to church or acting religious? Or giving money or volunteering your time to help others? The Bible says none of that will suffice, because the ticket to Heaven is expensive-far too expensive for any human being to afford.

Does that mean we can never go there? No-and the reason is because someone else has already purchased the ticket for us. That person was Just Christ, and the price He paid was His own blood, shed on the Cross for us.

Now He offers us the ticket to Heaven free and fully paid! Why refuse it? Why try some other way? Jesus’ invitation is still open: “Come! Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gist of the water of life” (Rev. 22:17).
