• Christ and Church Life and Building Spirit and Bride


    As a lover of Christ and a pursuer of truth, I write down my joys, memories and reflections.

    May God lead us all into the secret of His presence, and build us into the oneness of His body in love.

Serving in the Meetings and in the Gospel

Gospel preaching for 5 Kinds of people:

1. To Atheists:We need to touch their feelings, and ask them “what if God exists?”

诗篇-Psalms 14:1, 愚顽人心里说, 没有神。他们都是败坏, 行了可憎恶的事;没有一个人行善。
The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt; they commit abominable deeds; There is none who does good.

罗马书-Romans 1:19-20 因为神的事情, 人所能知道的, 原显明在人里面, 因为神已经给他们显明了。自从创造世界以来, 神那看不见永远的大能, 和神性的特征, 是人所洞见的, 乃是藉着受造之物, 给人晓得的, 叫人无法推诿;
Because that which is known of God is manifest within them, for God manifested it to them. For the invisible things of Him, both His eternal power and divine characteristics, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being perceived by the things made, so that they would be without excuse;

2. To Sinners without feeling sins: Don’t condemn them, but point out the destruction, pain, and consequences of sins. To sinners with feeling sins: Point out that salvation is not within us, but in Christ.
8:34耶稣回答他们说, 我实实在在的告诉你们, 凡犯罪的, 就是罪的奴仆。
Jesus answered them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin.
8:36所以神的儿子若叫你们自由, 你们就真自由了。
If therefore the Son sets you free, you shall be free indeed.

罗马书-Romans 6:23 因为罪的工价乃是死, 惟有神的恩赐, 在我们的主基督耶稣里, 乃是永远的生命。

哥林多后书-2 Corinthians 5:21 神使那不知罪的, 替我们成为罪, 好叫我们在祂里面成为神的义。
Him who did not know sin He made sin on our behalf that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

彼得前书-1Peter 2:24 祂在木头上, 在祂的身体里, 亲自担当了我们的罪, 使我们既然向罪死了, 就得以向义活着;因祂受的鞭伤, 你们便得了医治。
Who Himself bore up our sins in His body on the tree, in order that we, having died to sins, might live to righteousness; by whose bruise you were healed.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

3. To people feeling empty toward life: We need to point out that only God can satisfy this empty feeling.

约翰福音-John 4:13-14 耶稣回答说, 凡喝这水的, 还要再渴;人若喝我所赐的水, 就永远不渴;我所赐的水, 要在他里面成为泉源, 直涌入永远的生命。
Jesus answered and said to her, Everyone who drinks of this water shall thirst again, But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall by no means thirst forever; but the water that I will give him will become in him a fountain of water gushing up into eternal life.

以弗所书-Ephesians 2:12那时, 你们在基督以外, 和以色列国民隔绝, 在所应许的诸约上是局外人, 在世上没有指望, 没有神。
That you were at that time apart from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of the promise, having no hope and without God in the world.

4. To Moral people: We admit that we need morality, but Christ is the highest life.

5. To Religious friends: We need to show them some verses to assure their salvation.
约翰一书-1 John 5:13 我将这些话写给你们信入神儿子之名的人, 要叫你们晓得自己有永远的生命。
I have written these things to you that you may know that you have eternal life, to you who believe into the name of the Son of God.

Some selected verses
以赛亚书-Isaiah 53:6我们都如羊走迷, 各人偏行己路;耶和华使我们众人的罪孽都归在祂身上。
We all like sheep have gone astray; Each of us has turned to his own way, And Jehovah has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him.

约翰福音-John 3:16神爱世人, 甚至将祂的独生子赐给他们, 叫一切信入祂的, 不至灭亡, 反得永远的生命。
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that every one who believes into Him would not perish, but would have eternal life.

10:43众申言者也为祂作见证说, 凡信入祂的人, 必藉着祂的名得蒙赦罪。
To this One all the prophets testify that through His name everyone who believes into Him will receive forgiveness of sins.
13:39在一切你们靠摩西的律法不得称义的事上, 靠这人, 凡信的就都得称义了。
And from all the things from which you were not able to be justified by the law of Moses, in this One everyone who believes is justified.

约翰一书-1 John
1:7, 9但我们若在光中行, 如同神在光中, 就彼此有交通, 祂儿子耶稣的血也洗净我们一切的罪。我们若认自己的罪, 神是信实的, 是公义的, 必要赦免我们的罪, 洗净我们一切的不义。
But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from every sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
5:11-12 这见证就是神赐给我们永远的生命, 这生命也是在祂儿子里面。人有了神的儿子, 就有生命;没有神的儿子, 就没有生命。我将这些话写给你们信入神儿子之名的人, 要叫你们晓得自己有永远的生命。
And this is the testimony, that God gave to us eternal life and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. I have written these things to you that you may know that you have eternal life, to you who believe into the name of the Son of God.
