我剛讀過一篇來自 Christianity Today 的文章 「被文化囚禁中的今日教會」。 文章指出 「以基督為主就是大使命。 如果個一個人的生命主權沒有完全降服在基督腳下，這樣就犯了『疏忽之罪』 (sins of omission) 。 耶穌說要使人作門徒而不是作群眾。 教會目前的危機是我們有許多的會眾，但卻只有寥寥可數的門徒。」
羅馬書10: 9清楚指出我們必須口裡承認「耶穌為主」。 這意味著我們必須將生命擺上，讓上帝掌管和引導我們的餘生。 我們必須要降服在主耶穌的腳下，包括將我們的金錢，思想和意志降服在基督腳下。 讓我們禱告, 讓我們完全降服在基督的旨意下。阿門！
I just read an article, “The Church Today in Cultural Captivity”, from Christianity Today. The article states that “The Lordship of Christ is the Great Commission. The sin of omission overtakes the Great Commission if the sovereignty of the individual is not fully surrendered to the sovereignty of Christ. Jesus said to make disciples, not crowds. The current crisis in the Church is that we have great crowds, but few disciples.”
Romans 10:9 states that we have to confess with our mouths that “Jesus is Lord”. This means that we have to surrender our lives and allow God to guide and direct us. We are to surrender all to Jesus, our finances, our thoughts, and our will. Let’s pray that we all come to the point of total submission to His will. Amen!
