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).

然而我们只有一位神,就是父……并有一位主,就是耶稣基督……——哥林多前书 8:6

To us there is but one God, the Father . . . and one Lord Jesus Christ . . .1 Corinthians 8:6

如果耶稣基督并非如祂所说,那祂就是一个骗子,或者是一个极端自负的狂人。要回答这一问题,必须要在信仰上和行动上合一。我们不仅相信耶稣,也要践行信仰。我们只有两个选择,要么接受祂,要么拒绝祂。

耶稣很清楚地告诉我们祂是谁,为何要来到这个世界上。祂问门徒,人说我人子是谁?他们给出了各种回答,这些回答都是在人的层面上。然后耶稣转向他们问道,你们说我是谁?在此彼得回答祂,你是基督,是永生    神的儿子。(太 15:13-16)这是一句历史性的肯定。这是信心的顶点这是信仰的高峰这是每一个希望得到救赎的人的信心根基。基督是我们必须要面对的!你也要做出决定,我如何认识基督?

Ultimately, in one way or another, or at one time or another, we shall be faced with this question: What think ye of Christ? Whose Son is He? If Jesus Christ is not who He claimed to be, He is a deceiver, or an egomaniac. We must answer this question with both belief and action. We must not only believe something about Jesus, but we must do something about Him. We must accept Him, or reject Him.

Jesus made clear who He was, and why He came into the world. He asked His disciples, “Whom do men say that I, the Son of man, am?” They told Him of a variety of designations on the human level. Then Jesus turned to them and asked, “But whom say ye that I am?” Whereupon Peter replied with his historic affirmation, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:13-16).

This is the apex of faith. This is the pinnacle of belief. This is where the faith of each must rest if he hopes for salvation. Christ is inescapable! You, too, must decide, “What shall I do with Christ?”

今日祷告:
主耶稣啊,祢是基督,是永生神的儿子!我永远敬拜祢——我的救主。

Prayer for the day:
You are the Christ, Lord Jesus, Son of the living God! In adoration I worship You—my Redeemer.
