Isaiah
43:10 耶和华说:“你们是我的见证,我所拣选的仆人。既是这样,便可以知道,且信服我,又明白我就是耶和华,在我以前没有真神(“真”原文作“造作的”),在我以后也必没有。
You are my witnesses, says the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after me.
John
6:63 ……我对你们所说的话就是灵,就是生命。
…The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.
Comments of Sermon:
1. 使徒信經:
我信上帝,全能的父,創造天地的主。
我信我主耶穌基督,上帝獨生的子;因聖靈感孕,由童貞女馬利亞所生;在本丟彼拉多手下受難,被釘于十字架,受死,埋葬;降在陰間;第三天從死人中復活;升天,坐在全能父上帝的右邊;將來必從那裏降臨,審判活人死人。
我信聖靈;我信聖而公之教會;我信聖徒相通;我信罪得赦免;我信身體復活;我信永生。阿們。
Apostles’ Creed
1) I believe in God the Father, Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
2) And in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord;
3) Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary;
4) Suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, dead and buried: He descended into hell;
5) The third day he rose again from the dead;
6) He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
7) From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
8) I believe in the Holy Ghost;
9) I believe in the holy catholic church; the communion of saints;
10) The forgiveness of sins;
11) The resurrection of the body;
12) And the life everlasting. Amen.
2. 生命需要被拯救:
故事:有一孩童掉落水中,拼命挣扎呼救。第一个人经过,自言自语:“哎,顽皮的孩童啊,乱走乱跑,活该跌入水中,父母白养了”,摇摇头便走了;第二个人经过,说道:“哎,这条路歪斜陡峭,稍不小心便会落入水中,真是可怜啊”;第三个人经过,二话不说立刻跃入水中,将那个孩童救上岸来。
寓意:当我们需要被拯救的时候,那些冷酷的说教、高谈阔论、抑或是居高临下的怜悯,都不是待拯救者真正需要的。而我们真正需要的,正是那双确实实施拯救的手。
人们活在罪中;这种罪可以是不同的。有些人活在无尽的或是时有时无的痛苦中,有些人活在迷茫和彷徨之中,有些人活在看似物质丰厚实则心灵虚空之中,有些人活在看似人群围绕实则内心孤独之中……或许有些人会极力否认自己的软弱,但实际上这只是自欺欺人而已。世上的每个人都需要被拯救。
3. 生命本身是无可伪装也无可压制的神赐的力量:
一尊由行为艺术者模拟的人体雕塑,再如何将其伪装为死物,也必定会露出其有生命的破绽;一尊由雕塑大师塑造的人体雕塑,无论雕塑水平如何精湛,也必定无法掩饰其无生命的本质。
4. 活出信仰的必然性:
(1) 一切生命必有其源头。圣经《创世记》中便有极其精练的概括:各种被 神创造的生命“各从其类”。
(2) 因着信仰,获得生命:
John
5:26 因为父怎样在自己有生命,就赐给他儿子也照样在自己有生命;
For just as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself;
5:40 然而你们不肯到我这里来得生命。
Yet you refuse to come to me to have life.
10:10 盗贼来,无非要偷窃、杀害、毁坏;我来了,是要叫羊(或作“人”)得生命,并且得的更丰盛。
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
1:18 从来没有人看见 神,只有在父怀里的独生子将他表明出来。
No one has ever seen God. It is God the only Son, who is close to the Father’s heart, who has made him known.
(3) 体现信仰,充实智慧:基督徒的信仰要通过行为体现,因此基督徒在人群中必然会显得不同与众。如同大智若愚,有大智慧的人因超出常人而不被理解;基督徒的出淤泥而不染,同样会被很多世人所不解。但基督徒依然要富有爱心,乐于助人,自信而谦卑,热情而平和。
5. 活出信仰的保证:
(1) 宝贝的圣经;
(2) 耶稣的榜样;
(3) 圣灵的感动;
Galatians
5:22-23 圣灵所结的果子,就是仁爱、喜乐、和平、忍耐、恩慈、良善、信实、温柔、节制。这样的事,没有律法禁止。
By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things.

(4) 生命的成长。
