0830- Saved by the Blood of Jesus 被耶稣的宝血所拯救

Jesus who is seated at the right hand of God, died and rose again so that we may stand righteous before God. We are accepted by the Father because of the blood that was shed on the Cross of Calvary for our sins. His blood washed away our sins and made us whole again before God.Romans 8:33-35 (NKJV) Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?It is the blood of Christ that justified our right standing with God, it has nothing to do with us or our past nor our performance. We are righteous, loved, accepted and stand right before God because of His blood!!! Hallelujah!!Colossians2:6-8 (NKJV) As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving. Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.It is important that we are able to differentiate between the truth and the wrong teachings.
In some preachings, man will bring in their philosophical ideas, traditions of men and works according to the principles of the world! When all these teachings come together, there will be a yoke in life that causes frustration and inadequacy in oneself. Very often, people will say, “Oh! I am not worthy”, or “I am not good enough”. This is self -centered righteousness!

If we are not careful or refuse to renew our minds, we might carry forward these kinds of thinking, mentality and attitude as we begin our walk with God. Man, through their lack of knowledge can deceive others into believing the wrong teachings that create fear instead of having faith in God.

Our attempts to earn God’s love and acceptance can become a YOKE on us and a drag in our relationship with God. So much so that it becomes very difficult to walk out our Christian life. God has never intended it to be as such as many things are initiated by man!

Galatians 5:1 (NKJV) Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

We are free because we are saved by Jesus who was sacrificed to erase our sins.

Sermon Series: Law and Grace


被耶稣的宝血所拯救

那坐在神右边的耶稣,祂曾死去,后来复活,使我们得以在神面前称义。我们蒙父神的接纳,是因为那骷髅地十字架上为我们的罪而洒下的宝血。耶稣的血洗净我们一切的过犯,使我们在神面前再次完全。

罗马书8:33-35 33谁能控告 神所拣选的人呢?有 神称他们为义了。 34谁能定他们的罪呢?有基督耶稣已经死了,而且复活了,现今在 神的右边,也替我们祈求。35谁能使我们与基督的爱隔绝呢?难道是患难吗?是困苦吗?是迫害吗?是饥饿吗?是赤身露体吗?是危险吗?是刀剑吗?

唯有耶稣的宝血才能使我们拥有在神前的公义地位。这与我们或我们的过往及我们的表现等等一概无关。是的,我们是公义的、蒙爱的、被接纳的,能够坦然站立在 神面前,都是因为耶稣的宝血!哈利路亚!

歌罗西书 2:6-8 6既然你们接受了主基督耶稣,就要靠着他而生活, 7照着你们所领受的教导,在他里面生根建造,信心坚固,充满着感谢的心。 8你们要谨慎,免得有人用他的哲学和虚空的废话,不照着基督,而是照人间的传统和世上粗浅的学说,把你们掳去。

至关重要的是,我们需要拥有分辨真理和错误教导的能力。 讲员可能在一些证道中掺入他们的哲学思想、人的传统以及按着属世原则的工作!当所有这些教导混作一团 ,就会在生命中形成一个轭,使人感到挫败,自惭形秽。常常会听到有些弟兄姐妹说:“噢~我不配得!”或是“我不够好!”这些都是以自我为中心的自义。

如果我们不警醒,或是拒绝让自己的心意更新,当我们启程与神同行时,我们可能还会继续背负着这样的想法、观念及态度。出于无知,人可能会诱骗他人去相信错误的教导,以至产生惧怕,而不是信靠上帝。

我们试图赢取神的爱与接纳,而这可能成为一个挟制我们的轭,拖累我们与神的关系。以至于我们难以活出我们的基督徒的生命。而上帝的本意本非如此,这全是人自己一手造成的!

我们是自由的,因为耶稣拯救了我们,为了涂抹我们的罪,祂被献为祭。
