2017-09-03 Put God first (5) 把神放第一之五

发表于 2022-12-05

Last week, we looked at Psa 91:14, 上周我们分享了 诗91:4 ‘Because he loves me,’ says the Lord, “I will rescue him.” 神说,因他专心爱我,我就要搭救他  Do you still remember? To Love God is to obey His commands. 记不记得,爱神就是遵守祂的命令。We can’t obey His commands by our flesh, 靠肉体我们不能遵守神的命令,but by God’s grace through the guidance of the Holy Spirit to pray in faith, 惟有借着神的恩典和圣灵能力的引导,在信心里的祷告,and to die to the flesh, and to live in the truth. 向旧人死,向真理活。If we love Him and stay in His will, 若我们在神旨意里爱祂,God will rescue us from evil, sins, terror, and temptation, 神就要搭救我们,脱离邪恶、罪孽、惊惶、和试探,and everything God thinks that we need to be rescued from. 和所有一切神认为需要拯救的。Isn’t that awesome? 棒不棒?

 Today we are looking at v.15-16.  今天我们来看15-16节。 Psa 91:15-16 He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.” 他若求告我,我就应允他;他在急难中,我要与他同在;我要搭救他,使他尊贵。我要使他足享长寿,将我的救恩显明给他。”

1, Prayer has something to do with salvation祷告和救恩有关

 “He will call on me,”  “and I will answer!” 他若求告我,我就应允他!This promise has something to do with prayer and answering our prayer! 这个应许关乎祷告和对祷告的回应。What a privilege we have, that we can call on His name, and that the Almighty God will answer us! 祷告,全能神就应允,这是神赐给我们的何等特权!

I read an article last week, 上周我读到一篇文章which said, that 40 percent of scientists in U.S.A, 在美国,40%的科学家  believe that God is not just the Creator of all the universe, 相信上帝不止是万物的创造者 but a God to whom one can pray in expectation of an answer. 还是回应人祷告的上帝。We believe that prayer isn’t just one way that we talk to God! 我们相信祷告,不只是单单我们和神说话!But God will answer our prayers! 而是神会回答我们的祷告!

What are His answers all about? 祂都回答了些什么呢?Are they all about material things, something we can touch or see? 是那些看的见摸得着的,属物质世界的事吗?I will be with him in trouble…他在急难中,我要与他同在 I will deliver him…我要搭救他 and honor him…使他尊贵 I will satisfy him with long life…我要使他足享长寿   and show him my salvation. 将我的救恩显明给他。God’s promises are all about life! Eternal life! 神的 应许都关乎生命,关乎永生!And Peace! Deliverance and Salvation! 关乎平安,拯救和救恩!Calling on Him is all about salvation for our souls.  祷告是关乎我们的灵魂得拯救。

Throughout 12 years ministering to His church, 12年服事主的教会,I’ve found why some people’ s relationship with others are so damaged, 我发现有些人的人际关系很破裂,wherever they go, they cause troubles and problems to others or to themselves. 不管他们去哪里,他们就带麻烦和问题给自己,也给他人。Because they listen to the voice of their wounded hearts, 因为他们听从里面受伤的声音,and they are used to judge people by looking at people’s face, and immediately suspect, 他们习惯于看人的表情心里就断定,猜疑,“umm, he doesn’t seem to like me…嗯他好像不喜欢我…she despises me…她藐视我…he is nice to her, but not nice to me…他对她很好, 对我不好…” They listen to those suspicious voices, 他们听从猜疑的声音 and quickly affirm and believe what they have judged is true. 并且迅速肯定和相信他们判断的是真的。

From accepting lies, to being hurt. 从接受谎言到感受伤害。From being hurt, to unforgiveness, 从感到受伤到不饶恕,from unforgiveness to the pointing finger (that always pointing others faults) 从不饶恕到指摘人的指头(就是总是觉得别人错)and malicious talk (gossip, slander, rumour),和讲坏话 (讲坏话,诽谤,谣言,把假的当真的传)if we live in such a way, we hurt ourselves, 若那样活着,我们就伤害自己,and bring damages to our lives and to our relationships! 同时,我们生命受损,人际关系受损。 Because living in this way is under the control of the work of the devil. 因为那是在恶者掌控下的道路。The devil comes, to steal, to kill, and to destroy! 魔鬼来偷窃,杀害,毁坏!But now, the reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work (1 John 3:8b)! 但如今,神的儿子显现出来,为要除灭魔鬼的作为!约壹 3:8下。

If we believe in the truth, the Son of God can set us free from any lies! 若我们信真理,神的 儿子就能使我们得自由!Jesus said, the devil, he was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him...he is a liar and the father of lies (John 8:44). 耶稣说, 魔鬼,从起初就是杀人的,没有真理存在心里,他是说谎之人的父。 

Tracing the above thought pattern, we can see: 从上面的思维模式,我们可以看见:

Looking at----suspecting----judging by ourselves---believing lies----being hurt----unforgiving others---malicious talking and the pointing finger (that always pointing other’s faults) --- bringing troubles to everywhere (living under the bondage of Satan)    ---猜疑---自己断定----信谎言----伤害----不饶恕别人----讲坏话 和指摘人的指头(总是指向别人)----带麻烦到各处 (活在撒旦的捆绑下)。

New thinking pattern(新思维模式): refusing to believe the self’s judgement (拒绝信自己的判断—refusing to judge others (拒绝论断他人)---turning to trusting in truth and to pray (转向真理去祷告)---forgiving (祷告到饶恕)---loving your enemies(爱仇敌)---committing yourself to the Lord who judge justly (交托自己按公义审判的主---waiting for God's judgement 等候神的断定。

Can you find any truth that is involved in the old thinking model? 这个思维模式里有真理吗? No! not at all! 没有!完全没有!If we are Not holding to the truth, we are believing lies! 若没有真理,就是相信谎言!That’s why we can’t trust yourself, 因此我们不能信自己!

Jesus commands us, “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.”  耶稣说, 要警醒祷告,免得入了迷惑。Call on His name! 要求告祂的名  Call on Him in the truth and in His Spirit! 在真理和圣灵里祷告!Tell God what you feel, but look to Jesus’ footsteps, and turn to His truth! 告诉神你的感受,但要仰望基督的脚踪,要转向祂的真理!In your prayer, cast all suspicious thoughts and lies out of your heart! 在祷告里,把猜疑和谎言从你心里赶出去!Don’t feed strongholds inside of you, 不要喂养你里面的坚固营垒 But entrust yourself to the Father who judges justly! 只将自己交托按公义审判的神!So that you may find God’s good will and His wonderful salvation for your soul! 因此你就能认识神的美好旨意,和祂对你灵魂的奇妙救恩!  

2, How to pray in a way God can answer? 怎样祷告可以得着应许?

V. 15 He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble. 他若求告我,我就应允他;他在急难中,我要与他同在;This promise to answer and be with him is all about our personal relationship with God. 这是关于回应祷告和神同在的应许,都我们与神的关系有关。Someone asked me, 有人问我,“Jane, I prayed to God, and asked him, 我向主祷告,whether I’m too fat? 是不是我太胖了,whether a previous boyfriend can be my boyfriend again…我之前的男朋友能不能再做我男朋友啊 why God didn’t answer me?” 为什么神没有回答我这个祷告?

The bible tells us, 圣经说,“1 John 5:14-15 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him. 《约翰一书5:14-15》:我们若照他的旨意求什么,他就听我们,这是我们向他所存坦然无惧的心。既然知道他听我们一切所求的,就知道我们所求与他的,无不得着。

The key for receiving His answer is to pray according to his will. 得到应允的关键是,照祂的旨意求。But how can we know His will? 但我们怎能知道祂的旨意?Jesus Christ is our ultimate example, 耶稣是我们的榜样,in the garden of Gethsemane, he prayed, 在客西马尼园他这样祷告:“My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet, not as I will, but as you will. Matt 26:39” 【太26:39】我父啊,倘若可行,求你叫这杯离开我;然而,不要照我的意思,只要照你的意思。

It reveals the fact that when we pray, 这里显明一个事实就是当我们祷告,there will be a will from our own that may stand against God’s sovereign plan. 我们里面会有一个意思,要和神的旨意起冲突。Because in our circumstances, when we face stress, 当我们面临环境压力 we just wanna find an easy way out. 我们想要找到容易的出路。We wanna drink from a cup of ease and blessings, 我们想要喝安逸和赐福的杯,not from Christ’s cup of being obedient, even suffering pain. 我们不想要基督顺服的苦杯。But Christ chose “Your will be done. Not mine.” 但耶稣选择“不要照我的意思,只要照你的意思。”

I’m not saying that you can’t pray and ask God whatever you want, of course, you can!  我不是说你不可以想怎样祷告就怎么祷告,当然,你可以!But God is not an idol, so that He would satisfy our cravings or any self-ambitions. 但神不是偶像,祂不会满足我们的私欲和自己的抱负。God is the God who leads us into His Holiness and His eternity! 上帝是带领我们进入祂圣洁和永恒的上帝!

Through prayer, 借着祷告 He wants us to know more about His will, 他想让我们更多明白他的旨意 and to do His will, 和去行祂旨意,so that we will have more of Him and less of ourselves, 因此我们就成为,祂必兴旺,我必衰微,then no longer will we live in our bodies, 那样就不再是我们活着,but it will be possible for Him to live in us. 而是让基督在里面活,就能成为可能。

If we choose this way in our prayer, 若我们选择这样祷告 - “not my will, But Yours”, 不求自己的意思,只求主的意思,and we willingly pay price for being obedient to His truth, 并且我们愿意为顺服祂真理而付代价,even suffer pain, 甚至受苦,our prayer will always be answered. 我们的祷告就无不应允了!

3, Prayer has something to do with the resurrection祷告和复活有关

v. 16 with long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation. 16节,我要使他足享长寿,将我的救恩显明给他。 Does He mean those who love God and call on His name will all live a long life on earth? 神是说 要给他们地上的长寿吗?

I read lots of testimonies about God’s faithful servants, 我读过很多神衷心仆人的见证,some of them were killed only in their twenties, 有的人二十几岁就殉道了,some died in their forties, 有的四十来岁死了,some lived until their seventies. 有的活到70多。In fact, Christ wasn’t crucified as an old man, after a long life on earth! 耶稣基督也没有活到年级很大,很老才上十字架!God is the God of eternity! 上帝是永生神!Long life refers to eternal life, the resurrection!  长寿是指永生,指复活!If we call on His name, He will satisfy us with resurrection! 若我们求告祂的名,祂要使我们复活!And show us His salvation! 并且显明祂的救恩!What a powerful promise! 这是何等大能的应许!

Jesus was resurrected after His crucifixion in 3 days, 耶稣钉十字架后三天复活,and He has given us this 他已经给我们这个应许,就是:incomparably great power who believe. That power is like the working of His mighty strength, which exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated his at his right hand in the heavenly realms. (Ehp 1:19-20) 向这信的人所显的能力何等浩大,就是照他在基督身上所运行的大能大力,使他从死里复活,叫他在天上坐在自己的右边。【以弗所书1:19-20

It means, that if you believe and call on His name, 就是说,如果你信而求告祂的名,you can taste this immeasurably great power! 你能尝到这何等浩大的能力!But for what? 这能力是为了什么?For raising from the dead! 为使死人复活!

 Who is the dead? 谁是死人?We ourselves! 是我们!I’m Not saying the resurrection in the future! But now! 我不是说未来的复活,是现在!

You may say, “I’m alive since I accepted Jesus …” 你会说,我接受耶稣时,已经活了! No! Please stop judging on your own! 请不要自己判断!Let’s see God’s word, 让我们来看神的判断, “And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus (Eph 2:6)  2:6】他又叫我们与基督耶稣一同复活,一同坐在天上。Yes, we were raised from death when we accepted Jesus into our hearts. 是的,我们接受耶稣进到心里时,就从死里复活了。

But “raised…seated…” They are all past tense! 但这里的复活坐在天上,都是过去式 It means that we don’t know how long the state of seating with him in the heavenly realms can last? 就是说,与祂同坐天上,可以持续多久,我们不知道That’s why many Christians have said, 这就是为什么很多基督徒说:“The first two months after I accepted Jesus as my personal saviour was so sweet…so good…“刚开始信主的日子,真好… but later, this wonderful feeling was disappeared…” 但不久,这种感觉没有了”

You know why? 知道为什么吗?Spiritual life died again! 属灵生命又死了Because the flesh came out to rule in the body! 因旧人又出来掌权了!“Those who live according to the flesh (sinful nature) have their minds set on the things of the flesh (what that nature desires)…the mind of flesh is death. Romans 8:5,6” 因为随从肉体的人,体贴肉体的事;随从圣灵的人,体贴圣灵的事。体贴肉体的就是死【罗马书8:5-6   

When we turn back to our way of living in the flesh, 当我们回到肉体老路去生活, “when things go well according to what we want, we are happy…当事情顺利,我们就高兴 when things are out of our control, we lose peace and are anxious…事情一失控,就失去平安,就焦虑…when things go the opposite way of how we expected, we complain, grumble and lose heart…” 事与愿违 就抱怨,嘟囔,失去信心。

Or “Someone does what you like, you are happy with them…或者,别人做事,合你意 你就高兴,Someone does what you don’t like, you then are unhappy with them and you don’t like them…别人做的事,不称你心,你就不喜欢他们……you show your partiality…你带偏见断定…” That’s the way we used to live in the flesh! 这就是照着老旧人在生活!It’s Not the way Jesus Christ lived! 不是照耶稣基督!If we live according to our instinctive reactions, 若我们照本能反应活着 we die spiritually! 我们的灵命就死了 

We need the resurrection power to change us, 我们需要复活的大能带来改变,so that we can always live in His presence! 就能总是活在祂的面前!

Repent again! 重新悔改!Call on His name! 求告祂的名!The Holy Spirit in us will release His immeasurably great power圣灵会释放不可测度的大能大力,to tear all strongholds down in us! 拆毁我们的一切营垒!The strongholds of all kinds of fears and lies, 拆毁一切惧怕和谎言的营垒,of selfishness and of self-centeredness! 拆毁一切自私自利、自我中心的营垒!

Fourteen years ago, I was a non-Christian, 十四年前,我还没有信主 and believed in no gods but myself! 我什么都不信,就信自己!One day my husband was sitting in the lounge, 一天,我丈夫坐在客厅沙发上 while I was in the bedroom, 我在卧房 suddenly I heard him shout a word to the bedroom, 忽然我听见他朝卧室大喊一声,“Whom do you love? You love nobody but yourself!” “你爱谁?你谁也不爱,只爱自己!”

How do you think that I would have responded to him? 你觉得我会怎么反应?No, I didn’t say any words. 我没有说啥,I found this was true, 我知道这是真的,everybody lives in the way of self-defensiveness, 每个人都活在自我保护里, who can love others unconditionally? 谁会有无条件的爱?

There were two words came to my heart that I clearly remembered, 我记得心里有两句话,firstly, “Umm, how come my husband today has become so smart?” 第一句,“嗯,我老公今天怎么变得那么聪明?”  The second words: 第二句话, “I know I am selfish, but what’s the point in changing myself if tomorrow we all die? 既然大家都要死,为什么我需要改变?Who can change himself to become selfless? …Joking!” 谁可以变成真无私的人?搞笑!”

Thanks to God, 感谢主,and our Lord Jesus! 我们的主耶稣!We will not die, 我们不会死!we will live forever! 我们会永远的活着!That’s why we must change! 这就是我们要改变的原因!In the short term, 短期而言, selfishness causes us easily anger, 自私导致轻易发怒, unforgiveness and bitterness, 导致不饶恕和苦毒,those sins can both cause emotional sickness and physical sickness, even cancer. 这些罪,造成情绪疾病,身体疾病,甚至癌症。  

In the long team, 长期而言,Jesus will come again, 耶稣要再来 what do we want? 我们想要得什么呢? To receive a reward from Him? 得赏赐? Or punishment? 还是得刑罚? As Jesus said, “I will repay each of you according to your deeds.” 耶稣说,“要照各人的行为报应他。” Now the hope has been given to us! 神把盼望赐给我们!We all need to see our life-changing! 我们都需要更新生命!The resurrection power can change us into His selfless likeness. 复活的大能可以改变我们,成为他无私的样式。

Some may say, “I don’t need to be changed any more. 有人或许会说,我不需要再改变了, I’ve already given money to the poor…我给过穷人钱了…I’ve helped those who needed to be helped…我帮助过有需要的人。I’ve given what I needed to the one who needed...” 我把我用的都给有需要的人了。

The bible said, “If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have no love, I gain nothing. 1 Cor 13: 3” 经上说,“我若将所有的周济穷人,又舍己身叫人焚烧,却没有爱,仍然与我无益。”【林前13:3How can we give food to the poor without love? 难道我施舍,还不是爱?No! non-believers also can do it. 当然不是,不信的也可以做到How could our body be burned to save others without love? 我救人,自己被烧了,还不是爱?No, non-believers also can do it. 不是爱,不信的都可以。What is the love the bible is talking about?  那圣经说的 爱是什么?

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 1 Cor 13:4-8


You can give your food to the poor, 你可以施舍给穷人,but what if the poor repays you no thanks and spits on your face, 但那穷人不单不谢你,反而吐口水在你脸上,and even mocks and beats you…甚至嘲笑你,又打你……You can instinctively burst into flames to save others, 你可以本能的冲入火海拯救别人 but what if after that, the people you saved didn’t thank you, 但那以后,被救的人,不单不感恩but slandered you. 还诽谤你,How would you feel? 你感觉如何?Disappointed!失望 Cold heart? 心冷了,Anger? 生气了 What is love? 什么是爱?

Love is not self-seeking, 爱是不求自己的益处, it is not easily angered…不轻易发怒,Love never fails! 爱是永不止息!Only Jesus Christ, 只有耶稣,our Lord, when he was despised, 我们的救主,当他被藐视 rejected,被人拒绝 flogged,被鞭打 and crucified,被钉十字架 he didn’t change his love into hatred. 他的爱没有 变成恨 His love will never change! 祂的爱永不改变!And He is in us! 并且祂在我们里面!So call on His name, 求告祂的名confess that we don’t have this love, 承认我们没有这样的爱and that all our self-righteous acts are like filthy rags! 所有我们的义如同污秽的外衣 Ask Him to fill us with His divine love and to change us! 让祂的爱充满我们,来改变我们! At the end, I’m gonna tell a story, 最后,我要讲一个故事,a young man who was 17 years old, 一个17岁的男孩,was betrayed and sold as a slave to Egypt by his ten brothers, because of their jealousy. 因为被自己的亲兄弟嫉妒,被卖到埃及去做奴隶 You know who he is? 你知道他是谁?

Joseph, the son of Jacob. 雅各的儿子,约瑟If you were just 17 years old, 若你17岁,you had been bullied and sold into slavery by your own brothers, 你被亲兄弟欺负,并且被卖, how would you have felt? 你感受怎样?How would you have reacted? 你会怎样反应?Sadness?伤心? Hatred? 恨? Rejection? 拒绝感?Or self-pity? 自卑自怜? Or you would have wanted to repay evil for evil? 或者你想要去报复? As a salve in Potiphar’s house, 作为波提凡的奴隶,the bible says, 圣经这样说,The Lord was with Joseph and he prospered. Gen 39:2”.  耶和华和他同在,他就百事顺利。创39:2

God blessed Potiphar’s house because of Joseph. 因着约瑟,神祝福了波提乏的家 But soon after an unjust thing came to him again, 但不久,不公平的事又发生了 he was wrongfully imprisoned, 他被冤屈的下到监里 because his master’s wife accused him of raping her. 因为他主人的妻子诬陷他强奸。For 13 years, he became a slave and at least two years in the prison. 13年他被卖做奴隶,至少两年在监里,The bible say, the word of God tested him (Psa 105:16-19), 经上说,耶和华的话试验他,诗105:16-19.

But Joseph loved the Lord, he didn’t complain and hate others, 但约瑟爱神,没有埋怨恨人,instead he forgave and waited for the Lord in faith. 却在信心里饶恕和等候神 When the time came, 当神的时间来到,God honoured him as the highest official of the pharaoh. 神赐他成为法老的宰丞  One day, his bothers came to Egypt and asked for food due to a severe famine. 一天,因为严重饥荒,他兄弟们来到埃及,求食物

Let’s see how Joseph reacted to his bothers, 让我们看看约瑟在亲兄弟面前是怎样反应的?

Gen 42:24, He turned away from them and began to weep, Gen 43:30, Deeply moved at the sight of his brother, Joseph hurried out and looked for a place to weep. He went into his private room and wept there.【创四十二24】「约瑟转身退去,哭了一场,又回来对他们说话,就从他们中间挑出西缅来,在他们眼前把他捆绑。」【创四十三30】「约瑟爱弟之情发动,就急忙寻找可哭之地,进入自己的屋里,哭了一场。」These were not heartrending tears, so that he would have repaid evil for evil.这不是伤心泪让他觉得要去报复,Gen 45: 2-7 2 And he wept so loudly that the Egyptians heard him, and Pharaoh’s household heard about it. 3 Joseph said to his brothers, “I am Joseph! Is my father still living?” But his brothers were not able to answer him, because they were terrified at his presence. 4 Then Joseph said to his brothers, “Come close to me.” When they had done so, he said, “I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold into Egypt! 5 And now, do not be distressed and do not be angry with yourselves for selling me here, because it was to save lives that God sent me ahead of you. 6 For two years now there has been famine in the land, and for the next five years there will be no plowing and reaping. 7 But God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliverance.【创452-72 他就放声大哭,埃及人和法老家中的人都听见了。 约瑟对他弟兄们说:我是约瑟!我的父亲还在吗?他弟兄不能回答,因为在他面前都惊惶。 约瑟又对他弟兄们说:请你们近前来。他们就近前来。他说:我是你们的兄弟约瑟,就是你们所卖到埃及的。 现在,不要因为把我卖到这里自忧自恨,这是神差我在你们以先来,为要保全生命。 现在这地的饥荒已经二年了,还有五年不能耕种,不能收成。 神差我在你们以先来,为要给你们存留余种在世上,又要大施拯救,保全你们的生命。

Love is kind, 爱是恩慈it is not self-seeking, 爱是不求自己的益处,but seeks in the truth of God! 爱在神的真理里Joseph has the right to repay evil for evil, 约瑟有权利报复 but because he loves God, 但他爱神,the sad story of this family, turns out a most inspiring story of God’s salvation!  这个家庭悲剧,最终却成了感人的救恩故事!

Because he loves me, says the Lord, I will rescue him, he will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.” 神说:因为他专心爱我,我就要搭救他;因为他知道我的名,我要把他安置在高处。他若求告我,我就应允他;他在急难中,我要与他同在;我要搭救他,使他尊贵。我要使他足享长寿,将我的救恩显明给他。”This is God’s promise to those who love Him and call on His name! 这是神对那些爱祂并求告祂名之人的应许!

Joseph passed away! 约瑟不在了,Moses passed away! 摩西不再了,Jeremiah passed away! 耶利米不在了Daniel passed away! 但以理不在了, The twelves disciples passed away! 12 门徒也不在了,But God never passes away! 但上帝永远长存! He remains the same! 祂永不改变 Who can be like Joseph in this age, 谁能像约瑟那样,to powerfully bring God’s grace into the sad story of your family,大有能力的带着神的恩,进入你伤心的家庭,of your school, and of your work place? 进入你的学校和你的工作场所? to turn sadness into the joy of God’s salvation! 使悲伤的能得着救恩的喜乐呢?

Yes, you might experience rejection, 是的,你或许经历拒绝you might be abandoned by your bothers or your sisters in your youth? 你或许在年幼被弟兄姊妹弃绝You might be abandoned by your mom or your daddy in your youth? 在你年幼被父母弃绝,You might grow up in a broken family like Joseph’s? 你或许长在像约瑟那样的家庭里, You might feel so sorry and cry sadly for what you experienced in you youth? 你或许为你的幼年经历难过But broken is broken! 但破碎的就是破碎了! No family is perfect in this broken world, 在这个破碎的世界里,没有一个家庭是完美的even in Jacob’s family, 就算是在雅各的家 Joseph was bullied and was about to be killed, eventually sold by his bothers as a slave!  约瑟都被亲弟兄欺负,差点害死,最后卖了!

But hope is hope! 但盼望总是盼望!Jesus has given us this hope! 耶稣给了我们盼望! That he died and raised from the death! 他死了,又活了!And He gave us His enternal life! 祂赐给我们永生!God has a purpose for you! 上帝对你有一个计划! God’s love and His resurrection power can turn your sadness into an inspiring story of His salvation! 祂的爱和复活大能可以使你伤心的故事 变成感人的救恩见证!
