WHY LORD? 主,為什麼?

John 約 翰 福 音 9:1-7; Isaiah 以 賽 亞 書 55:8-9

(Listen to the sermon, 聽講道)

 1. That Question Has Been Around A Long Time

 那個問題已經存在已久了

1 As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth.2 “Teacher,” his disciples asked him, “why was this man born blind? Was it a result of his own sins or those of his parents?” 3 “It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered. “He was born blind so the power of God could be seen in him. 6Then he spit on the ground, made mud with the saliva, and smoothed the mud over the blind man’s eyes.7 He told him, “Go and wash in the pool of Siloam” (Siloam means Sent). So the man went and washed, and came back seeing! John 9:1-3; 6-7

1耶穌走路的時候,看見一個生下來就瞎眼的人。2他的門徒問他:“拉比,這人生下來就瞎眼,是誰犯了罪?是他呢,還是他的父母呢?”3耶穌回答:“不是他犯了罪,也不是他的父母犯了罪,而是要在他身上彰顯 神的作為。6說了這話,就吐唾沫在地上,用唾沫和了一點泥,把泥抹在瞎子的眼睛上,7對他說:“你去西羅亞池洗一洗吧。”於是他就去了,洗完了,走的時候,就看見了。

約 翰 福 音9:1-3; 6-7

  • What do you think Jesus is doing right now?- “As Jesus was walking along…”
    你認為耶穌現在正在做什麼?-「耶穌走路的時候…」

A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.  Proverbs 11:25

樂善好施的人,必得豐裕;施惠於人的,自己也必蒙施惠。箴 言 11:25

  • The “Why?” question- “why was this man born blind?”
    那個「為什麼?」的問題-「為何這人生來就是瞎眼的呢?」
  • Jesus’ answer- “so the power of God could be seen in him. 耶穌的回答-「是要在他身上彰顯 神的作為。」

 

2. The Question Becomes Personal

    那個問題變成個人性的問題

  • Why Isn’t Jesus Doing Something?  “doing what I want Him to do.”

為什麼耶穌現在不做些什麼呢? 「做些我要祂做的事」

  • Why Is This Happening To Me Or Someone I Love?- “the blame game”

為什麼這件事發生在我或我摯愛的人身上?- 「責備競賽」

  • Is This Fair?
    這公平嗎?

In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and on the unjust, too.  Matthew 5:45

好叫你們成為你們天父的兒子;因為他使太陽照惡人,也照好人;降雨給義人,也給不義的人。

馬 太 福 音5:45

 

3. Two Important Answers From God

    兩個從上帝來的重要回覆

  • You will never know the complete answer, because you are not Me.
    你將永遠無法知道全部的答案,因為你不是我(上帝)。

8 “My thoughts are completely different from yours,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. 9 For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.  Isaiah 55:8-9

8耶和華說:“我的意念不是你們的意念,你們的道路也不是我的道路。9天怎樣高過地,我的道路也怎樣高過你們的道路,我的意念也怎樣高過你們的意念。以 賽 亞 書    55:8-9

  • I will be there by your side with all My love no matter what.
    無論發生什麼事情,我將以我的愛與你同在。

34 Who then will condemn us? Will Christ Jesus? No, for he is the one who died for us and was raised to life for us and is sitting at the place of highest honor next to God, pleading for us.  35 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or are hungry or cold or in danger or threatened with death? 36 (Even the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.” ) 37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. Romans 8:34-37

34 誰能定我們的罪呢?有基督耶穌死了,而且復活了,現今在 神的右邊,也替我們祈求。35誰能使我們與基督的愛隔絕呢?是患難嗎?是困苦嗎?是迫害嗎?是飢餓嗎?是赤身露體嗎?是危險嗎?是刀劍嗎?36正如經上所記:“為你的緣故,我們終日面對死亡,人看我們像待宰的羊。”37但靠著愛我們的那一位,我們在這一切事上就得勝有餘了。羅 馬 書 8:34-37

38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels can’t, and the demons can’t. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, and even the powers of hell can’t keep God’s love away. 39 Whether we are high above the sky or in the deepest ocean, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

38因為我深信:無論是死、是生,是天使、是掌權的,是現在的事,是將來的事,是有能力的,39是高天的、是深淵的,或是任何別的被造之物,都不能叫我們與 神的愛隔絕,這愛是在我們的主耶穌基督裡的。羅 馬 書 8:38-39
