路加福音23:32-43
全部都是罪犯
"就说: '耶稣阿, 你得国降临的时候, 求你纪念我。'" 路23: 42

  当耶稣被钉在十字架上时, 左右两旁有两个罪犯, 其中一个因为相信耶稣, 在当日就承受了永生。

  这两个罪犯都是罪人, 我们也是罪人, 实在没有人比别人优胜。我们或许会和人比较, 然后说自己的罪不是那么严重。但在神眼中, 只要我们犯了罪, 就要面对灭亡, 除非我们认罪, 并且相信耶稣有能力拯救我们(参约翰一书1: 8-2: 2)。

  或许你听过一个故事, 在一个小镇上, 有一对作恶多端的兄弟, 他们行事暗昧, 常常惹事生非。一天, 哥哥在一宗交通意外中丧生, 弟弟要筹备丧礼, 但当地的牧师全都回避他。于是, 弟弟登广告, 声言若有任何神职人员肯称他哥哥为"圣人", 就赏他一万元。结果, 该丧礼由一位年青的教士主领, 出席丧礼的村民都甚好奇, 不知道谁会称他这位去世的哥哥为"圣人"。讲者开始演说: "大家都知道, 这人恶名昭彰, 但比起他这位在世的弟弟, 他却是个'圣人'……"

  这故事可能只令我们发笑, 与其他罪人比较, 其实是无济于事的。说来人人都是罪人, 而得救的方法只有一个。但愿我们好像十字架上那个罪犯一样, 今日就仰望耶稣!

祷告

天父, 感谢祢, 因为无论我们的罪如何深重, 祢都会藉着耶稣赐我们新生命。愿祢的国降临, 又愿我们像十字架的强盗一样, 能藉着对耶稣的信心, 今天在天国里已经有分。奉耶稣的名求, 阿们 。

Luke 23:32-43 路加福音23:32-43
one criminal 全部都是罪犯
"He said, 'Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.'" —Luke 23:42 "就说: '耶稣阿, 你得国降临的时候, 求你纪念我。'" 路23: 42

When Jesus was on the cross, two criminals hung on either side of him. One of them received the gift of eternal life that day by trusting in Jesus.

Both of these criminals were sinners. So are we. None of us is any better than anyone else. We might make comparisons and say our sins are not so bad. But in God's sight, if we have sinned, we are headed for destruction unless we confess our sin and trust in Jesus' power to save us (see 1 John 1:8-2:2).

Maybe you've heard the story of a small town with a pair of bad brothers. They were always doing something shady, always making trouble. One day the older brother died in a car accident. The younger brother tried to plan the funeral, but all the local parsons avoided him. So the younger brother advertised, promising to pay $10,000 to any cleric who would call his brother a "saint." A young clergyman presided over the funeral. The funeral was full of curious villagers. They wondered who would ever call the dead brother a "saint." The speaker began: "As you all know, this man had the reputation of being evil. But in comparison to his living brother, this man was a 'saint.' . . ."

This story may give us a laugh, but there's no use in comparing ourselves with other sinners. Everyone is a sinner. And there is only one way to be saved. Like that one criminal on the cross, may we look to Jesus!

Prayer 禱告

Heavenly Father, thank you for giving us new life through Jesus. May your kingdom come, and may we be a part of it for Jesus' sake. In his name we pray. Amen.

天父, 感谢祢, 因为无论我们的罪如何深重, 祢都会藉着耶稣赐我们新生命。愿祢的国降临, 又愿我们像十字架的强盗一样, 能藉着对耶稣的信心, 今天在天国里已经有分。奉耶稣的名求, 阿们 。
