神所彰顯的愛：成為神的孩子 God’s Love: Becoming His Child
God’s Love: Becoming His Child
講師/Speaker: Lawrance Wu
6我們還軟弱的時候，基督就在特定的時刻為不敬虔之人死。 7為義人死，是少有的；為仁人死，也者有敢做的。 8惟有基督在我們還作罪人的時候為我們死，上帝的愛就在此向我們顯明了。 9現在我們既靠著他的血稱義，就更要藉著他得救，免受上帝的憤怒。 10因為我們作仇敵的時候，尚且藉著上帝兒子的死得以與上帝和好，既已和好，就更要因他的生得救了。 11不但如此，我們既藉著我們的主耶穌基督得以與上帝和好，也就藉著他以上帝為樂。【羅馬書五6-11】
6For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— 8but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. 10For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. 11More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. (Romans 5:6-11)
God Loves the World
In this paragraph, there are three kinds of men in God’s eyes:
- A. 軟弱的人Weaklings（v.6）
We are weak because we can’t use the wisdom that God gives to us properly.
- B. 犯罪的人Sinners（v.8）
- 罪人就是沒有達到上帝律法要求的人。A sinner is someone who can’t completely follow God’s commands.
- 因為世人都犯了罪，虧缺了 神的榮耀（羅馬書三23）
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. (John 8:34)
For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. (Romans 7:18)
- C. 與神為敵的人God’s Enemy（v.10）
Because we have sinned, we are an enemy of God.
God’s Love is Shown on the Cross
The love on the cross is active,
The love on the cross is superior,
The love on the cross is manifesting to man
You can receive Jesus right now by faith through prayer:
“Lord Jesus, I need you. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. By Your grace, I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be. Amen.”
