你可以讲道


你可以讲道

You Can Preach!

 

“这天国的福音要传遍天下,对万民作见证,然后末期才来到。”(

—-太24:14

 

And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world . . .

—Matthew 24:14 (TLB)

 

我们是福音的管家,在天上和地下宣扬最伟大的福音的权力没有给天使,而是给了被救赎的人类。这权力给了谦卑的平信徒。有人认为只有牧师才能讲道,但那是错的。每个基督徒都是一个见证。每一个基督的追随者都应该宣讲福音。

 

我们可以借着与他人分享我们的经历来宣讲。我们可以借着在生活中高举基督来宣讲。被看到的布道常常比被听到的布道更有效果。真理是:最好的布道是又能听见又能看见,那是一种视听的见证。我们也可以借着向他人奉献布道,因此他们也可以布道。宣教士的礼物、教会奉献,和慈善捐款你的无私和基督徒慷慨的明证。

 

在所有这事当中,我们是上帝的同工。我们正在借着他的恩典帮助拯救世界。今天比历史上任何一个时期,上帝都需要我们的时间,我们的才干,我们的见证,和我们的金钱。我们应完全成为上帝的一个同工。

 

We are stewards of the Gospel. The power to proclaim the greatest news in heaven or on earth was not given to the angels. It was given to redeemed men. This was addressed to humble laymen. Some think that only ministers are to preach, but that is wrong. Every Christian is to be a witness; every follower of Christ is to preach the Gospel.

 

We can preach by sharing our experience with others. We can preach by exalting Christ in our daily lives. Sermons which are seen are often more effective than those which are heard. The truth is: the best sermons are both heard and seen. They are a sort of audiovisual testimony. We can also preach by giving to others, so they may preach. Missionary gifts, church offerings, and charitable contributions all speak eloquently of your unselfishness and Christian generosity.

 

In all these things, we are partners with God. We are helping by His grace to redeem the world. God needs our time, our talents, our witnessing, and our money, today more than at any other time in history. Become a full, working partner with God.

 

每日祷告

今天不论我走到哪里,使我意识到我所遇到人,他们需要你的爱。因此,不论我是否可以向他们讲到你,都要以任何方式说慈爱的话,我愿意像你,主啊,永远去爱,永远给予。

 

Prayer for the day

Wherever I go today, make me conscious of the people I meet. They need Your love. So whether I can speak of You to them, say a kind word or minister in any way, I would be like You, Lord—ever loving, ever giving.
