们可以很清楚地看到, 世界潮流所带来的问题, 其实只是结果并不是原因. 真正的起因, 是在我们自己身上. 事实上我们可以持守自己的信仰, 不为任何从人来的世界观而影响, 但我们要知道人类还有一个很重要的问题,我们自己没有办法解决它. 这是什么问题呢? 怎样解决这个问题呢?  

人类所面临的最大问题就是罪的问题. 如果我们没有办法将罪的问题解决,我们就无法敬拜上帝. 怎样将罪给除掉呢? 我们自己可以做得到吗?自己可以解决这个问题吗?

对人类, 那最大的好消息就是, 在圣经里, 新约与旧约都同时的提到, 上帝已经将解决我们问题的方式,非常清楚地写在圣经里面了. 我们很清楚认知, 解决问题的方案是来自上帝, 而不是来自我们自己. 在整个宇宙的创造,人类的堕落, 上帝的拯救以及上帝与人类的和好的这些历史当中,上帝的旨意已经在圣经里面写的非常清楚了.  

创造, 堕落, 救赎, 和好的关系: 

既然我们知道解决方式就是让上帝来解救我们, 将我们身体里面, 那不好的罪除掉,取而代之, 让圣神的灵充满着我们. 也就是说, 我们需要从上面来的智慧, 而不是从人而来的智慧, 来拯救我们.   从上帝创造人类, 人类的堕落,耶稣的救赎,到我们跟上帝重新建好良好的关系为止的这个过程中, 我们知道上帝已经老早就为我们安排最好的解决方式. 这里就我们跟上帝的关系作一个比较详细的描写. 

神的创造: 

我们敬拜上帝是因为上帝造了我们也造了宇宙万物. 所以他是宇宙万物的真神,也是我们的主, 我们的神.  他不但是我们的主, 而且他也愿意掌管我们的一切, 使我们可以将重担卸下, 完全交托上帝.  就是因为这样, 当我们敬拜上帝的时候,我们可以全心全人, 以无限喜悦的心, 来敬拜他, 因为我们知道他掌管我们的一切, 提供我们的所需. 诗篇第100篇第二节: 

Psalms 100:2 你們當樂意事奉耶和華.當來向他歌唱

当神创造了我们, 就给了我们智慧, 然而,许多时候, 我们还像是属灵的婴孩一样. 然而上帝无条件地喂养我们这属灵的婴孩, 希望我们赶快长大成人. 就好比上帝是牧羊人的话,我们就好像是他的羊群, 牧羊人叫我们跟着他因为他保护着我们. 

启示录第四章第八节, 天使天军不停地敬拜上帝. 

Rev 4:8 四活物各有六個翅膀、遍體內外都滿了眼睛.他們晝夜不住的說、聖哉、聖哉、聖哉、主 神.是昔在今在以後永在的全能者。

启示录第四章第十一节: 我们敬拜就是要让上帝知道,唯独他是配得的这个荣耀, 他是创造宇宙万物的主宰, 我们心存敬畏的感谢他. 

Rev 4:11 我們的主、我們的 神、你是配得榮耀尊貴權柄的.因為你創造了萬物、並且萬物是因你的旨意被創造而有的。

我们是受造物, 我们需要一个我们可以依靠的主,当我们敬拜的时候, 这种对神由衷的感谢之心,心中发起的敬爱. 可以使我们更明自己, 并将自己谦卑地臣服在上帝面前, 因为他对我们的爱是何等的长阔高深.

 上帝造我们,他给我们一个灵魂又给我们肉体, 所以我们可以全心全意的在这个世界上敬拜上帝, 但是并非所有的表达方式都是上帝所喜悦的, 除非在我们敬拜的时候, 我们可以明了, 并且完全了解我们是上帝的受造物. 我们为上帝做的事,就展现出我们对上帝的感谢, 还有一颗想要跟上帝建立良好关系的心,因为上帝先创造了我们, 所以我们有机会荣耀上帝以神为乐. 上帝使我们的心灵提升, 是因为我们的灵魂, 身体跟上帝的真理站在一起. 当我们外在的良善表现与我们内在的心连成一体的时候,这个身心灵的一致性, 使我们得到神明确的指引, 就要像孩子收到父亲的个别指导一样. 

人类的堕落: 

问题就在于我们人类的罪. 这个罪就是从亚当夏娃吃禁果的那一刹那开始的. 上帝以他全能的主权, 他的大能, 他愿意饶恕我们所犯的罪. 然而上帝不能够将他的圣洁与人类的罪混合一谈. 所以我们人的罪无法靠近上帝这样圣洁的神. 上帝给我们最好的解决方式就是, 以一个人的赎罪来代替我们所有人的罪. 这就是新约里面的福音主题. 我们能够收到这份美好的福音作礼物, 不是因为我们自己做了些什么事情?而值得得到这一份得救的礼物. 而是因为我们对上帝的顺服, 所以我们能够再一次的被接受, 像浪子回头对父亲紧紧的拥抱. 原来上帝很希望并且乐意救赎我们, 除掉我们的罪.

上帝的救赎: 

上帝对人类的救赎,就是使他的爱子,耶稣基督, 为我们的罪死在十字架上. 他用他自己的宝血成为我们的代罪羔羊来拯救我们, 免得将来我们永远的与神隔绝. 从我们被救赎的那一刹那开始, 整个人类的历史就大大的跟以前不一样了. 这个救赎的计划的成功, 就是撒旦的计谋无法得逞的主要原因. 我们对上帝的感谢不只是敬拜赞美他, 或是在他前面仰望着他而已, 而是尽心,尽性 尽力的爱主, 感谢主我们的神, 这在我们对神的敬拜赞美中表现无遗. 所以,一个有罪的人能够成为无罪的, 而满心感恩的站在神面前, 被神接受, 也顺服在神的怀抱中.   

 所以, 借着耶稣基督为我们的罪而死, 为我们付上罪的代价, 我们可以从新的跟上帝和好, 而可以在这个世界上, 活出上帝的真理, 就好像活在上帝给我们的天国里面. 

希伯来书第十章14节: 因為他一次獻祭、便叫那得以成聖的人永遠完全。

罗马书第五章第十节: 因為我們作仇敵的時候、且藉著 神兒子的死、得與 神和好、既已和好、就更要因他的生得救了。

下一次我们会继续谈敬拜者与上帝的关系, 上帝的子民, 天国与教会, 等等的细节. 谢谢各位.

Worldview - The challenge we are facing (2)

A good subtitle

Creation-Fall-Redemption-Restoration - The solution is to ask God to fix us: 

The problem is the sin within us. But how do we remove it? Can we fix this problem ourselves? The good news is that through out the Bible, God has always initiated his solution for our problem. The fundamental idea is that the right solution must not coming from us but from God. It is illustrated the best through out the Creation-Fall-Redemption-Restoration process. 

Creation: 

We worship God is because he is our creator, the center and only subject that he reigns over us. We worship the Lord with gladness (Psalm 100:2) because God made us and we are his people just like the sheep belongs to pasture under his shepherd’s protection. Rev 4:8 described that day and night the four living creatures never stoop praise to God and twenty-four elders “fall down before Him” (Rev 4:10). Our worship is to show that God alone to worthy to receive glory and we want to honor for God creates all things (Rev 4:11). We are dependent being to God and worship is an ultimate response to the creator himself.[Worship by the Book, p34] We can acknowledge and submit ourselves to God because he has so much love for us. 

God create us and give us a spirit and flash so we can engage and express our love during worship. These expressions is not what God’s desire unless we acknowledge that we are created by God. What we do for God reflect who we are and our desire for the relationship with him which God created us to be. We are lifted when our spirit and body line up with the truth. When our outside express reflect the inside heart, we can receive guidance from the Lord as a child receives a guidance from the father. 

Fall: 

The problem is that human have sins since Adam and Eve eat the fruit from the forbidden tree. God is sovereign and he is willing to forgive us but God cannot mix his holiness with the sinful man. The sinner cannot stand before God because God is perfect and holiness. God’s solution for us is to substituted our sins with redemption. This is the message of the Gospel or the new covenant. We receive this great salvation is not because what we have done something that deserved this, but because of our submission to him so we can reach to the status of acceptance to God; therefore, he is please to wipe out our sins. 

Redemption: 

God accomplish his redemption plan by sacrificing Jesus Christ through crucifixion on the cross. He use his own blood for the Church and become our sacrificial lamb in order to save us. From the moment of redemption, the history of human being has never be the same. For this amazing redemption plan, our response is not just to worship, stand existence before God, but a wholeheartedly thanksgivings, love, fulfilling our live in God through worship. So the sinful man through God’s redemption, can approach God again by accepting and humbly submissive to God. 

Therefore, we can reconcile with God through Jesus Christ’s sacrifician for us. Therefore, we can live with his truth in this world and as in heaven. “For if, when we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!”(Heb 10:14), and “because by one sacrifice he has made perfect for ever those who are being made holy” (Rom 5:10). 

Restoration: 

God also provide restoration to us. The promise of the new covenant in Ezekiel 36:25-27 and Hebrew 8:13 about the restore of the temple is a perfect redemption example. Today, the temple is not the man built one but the temple as Jesus’ body, the church and the individual Christian (John 2:13-22, 1 Cor 3:16-17, 1 Cor 6:19) in the new covenant. Inevitably the way of worship from the temple and priestly system under the old covenant has be transformed by the Christ. We offer our bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God, and this is a spiritual act of worship (Rom 12:1-2). 

During this restoration, in this new covenant, we are all priests (1 Peter). Paul says what we offer is no lamb or bull any more, but our body. This worship of the new covenant has make an example of God-centered, and gospel inspired worship.[Worship by the Book, p44] God is eternal so our worship is an eternally worship. When we submit to His authority, we can joyfully participate in this eternal activity.
