Instant Reminders 隨時的提醒

In 2014, we added this Section to help those truth seekers who are still deeply entrapped by the world system. They seek instant and short reminders just like instant coffee in the morning to help start the day. In this Section, we just give short and sweet reminders from the Scripture concerning various issues in life. We are living in an era where the deception schemes of the world system are so sophisticated that we are easily being misled. For example, news disseminated through the major news media are already filtered and biased that we are easily mis-fed and misled. It is wrong to assume that only unbelievers are misled. Believers may also be misled if they forget to heed the warning by our Lord. "Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation."(Luke 22:46) or " Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation." (Matthew 26:41f). One of the key reasons of adding this web page is to remind believers  that we should enjoy many precious promises from our Lord Jesus Christ such as love. peace, and joy in our daily lives even among many tribulations we will surely  encounter in this world.

 

隨時的提醒
在2014年,我們增加了本節,來幫助、仍深陷於世界體系羅網中的慕道者。他們尋求快速、即時、短文的提醒,如同在早上、依賴喝一杯即溶咖啡、來開始新的一天的心態一樣。在本節中,我們只提供聖經中、有關生活中的各種問題的經文、作簡短而親切的提醒。我們生活世代裡的世界體系,充滿非常複雜且高度設計的欺騙結構,讓我們很容易被誤導。例如,通過各大新聞媒體傳播的新聞,是已經被過濾、且存有偏見的暗盤:我們很容易被錯誤的灌輸和誤導。如果您認為只有不信的人才會被誤導,這種假設是不對的。如果信徒忘了聽從我們主的警告-- “起來禱告,免得入了迷惑。”(路加福音22:46)或 “ 總要警醒禱告,免得入了迷惑。” (馬太福音26:41f),信徒更容易被誤導的,我們增加本綢頁的主要原由是提醒信徒要在日常生活中經歷主耶穌基督的應許,包含上帝的大愛、平安與喜樂,卽使我們在世界迫害的苦難裡。

Reminder 1

 Are you a believer of Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord?  Do you have a personal relationship with Him or just go through the motion in your head knowledge only but never truly love Him in your heart? Do you really know Him and seek for His help many instants daily? Or are still running your life as your own without the guidance of the indwelling Holy Spirit? Do you just think yourself as a Christian but do not live your day as a Christian? For example, a person can go to church on Sunday but live without Jesus Christ from Monday to Saturday. How can a person say that he loves Jesus Christ on sundays only and be a Christian? If we do not have a personal intimate relationship with our Lord, how can we enjoy all the riches and peace and joy in Christ Jesus?  The Scripture reminds us the following:

Colossians 1:15-19
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. 18 He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything. 19 For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him,

John 14:27
27 Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.

 

提醒1

您是相信基督耶穌是、你的救主和生命的主的信徒?你是否與祂有親密的個人關係;或只是經過你的腦袋知識的運作,但從來沒有在你的心中、真正愛祂?你是否真的認識祂,在日常生活中、有很多時刻,尋求祂的幫助;或是仍然過著你自己的生活,沒有遵循聖靈的引導呢?或則、你只是覺得自己是一個基督徒,卻沒有過著基督徒的生活?例如,一個人在週日、會去教堂禮拜:但在週一至週六的生活中,且沒有耶穌基督。一個人如何能說只有在週日、才愛耶穌、他是基督徒嗎?如果我們與主沒有親密的交通,我們怎麼能擁有在基督裏的豐盛,平安和喜樂呢?聖經這樣提酲我們:
歌羅西書 1:15-19
15 愛子是那不能看見之神的像,是首生的,在一切被造的以先。 16 因為萬有都是靠他造的,無論是天上的、地上的,能看見的、不能看見的,或是有位的、主治的、執政的、掌權的,一概都是藉著他造的,又是為他造的。 17 他在萬有之先,萬有也靠他而立。 18 他也是教會全體之首。他是元始,是從死裡首先復生的,使他可以在凡事上居首位, 19 因為父喜歡叫一切的豐盛在他裡面居住。
約翰福音 14:27
27 我留下平安給你們,我將我的平安賜給你們。我所賜的不像世人所賜的,你們心裡不要憂愁,也不要膽怯。

 

Reminder 2:

You can not treat Christian belief as another add-on credential in your life such as another membership in organizations you belong to. You can not love the world and the Father just a wife can not say that she loves her husband and another man at the same time. How can you say that you are a Christian but you do not love and upheld the teaching of the Holy Scripture?

提醒2:

你不能把基督教的信仰,看成你人生的另一個新增的資格憑證,像是你所屬另一組織的會員資格。你不能愛世界及天父,像一個妻子不能在同一時間、說她愛她的丈夫和另一個男人。你怎麼能說、你是一個基督徒,但你不愛與不堅持聖經的教導?

Reminder 3:

How can a person say that he/she is a believer but  loves sin more than  loves Jesus Christ who died for him/her to redeem him/her from sin. The Scripture did not say that we are or will be perfect in this life in holiness  as a believer. On the contrary, we, as a believer, will be even more sensitive in  struggling against sin  after we became a Christian. So as a believer, we will strive for holiness but may fail from time to time, but we will repent and really sorry that we sinned against a holy God who loves us dearly and will forgive us again because of Jesus Christ our Lord. It is the sanctified life that we are truly dependent on Jesus Christ our Lord to help us grow in His likeness.

提醒3:

一個人如何能說、他/她是一個信徒,卻愛罪、更多於愛為他/她贖罪而死的耶穌。聖經沒有說身為信徒,我們在這輩子的生命裹、能得到完美聖潔的。相反地,我們成為基督徒後,會有更多的靈敏、來與罪抗鬥。因此,作一個信徒,我們將努力追求聖潔,雖然時常會失敗:但我們會悔改,且深切羞愧:因為我們得罪了深愛我們、聖潔的神,祂因為我們的主耶穌基督而再次原諒我們。要擁有聖潔的生命,我們真正要依賴我們的主耶穌基督,來幫助我們長成祂的身量。

 

Reminder 4:

You can not become a Christian by claiming your knowledge of the Bible or your deeds in attending church or doing good work. You can only become a Christian by your faith in Jesus Christ for who He is and what He did in The Cross for you. "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast." ( Ephesians 2:8-9)  This simply means that by your new nature, you will not be happy in  indulging "in the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes, and the boasting of what he has and does" (1 John 2:16)

提醒4:

你不能以、聲稱擁有聖經的知識,參加教會或良好的作工,成為基督徒。你只能通過你的信仰耶穌基督、相信祂是永生上帝的獨生子,天父派祂來拯救,並相信祂在十字架上為你所做的一切,成為一個基督徒。 “你們得救是本乎恩,也因著信。這並不是出於自己,乃是神所賜的; 也不是出於行為,免得有人自誇。” (以弗所書2:8-9),這表示是你已重生有新的屬性,你也不會開心的放縱在肉体的邪情私慾裏,“ 因為凡世界上的事,就像肉體的情慾、眼目的情慾並今生的驕傲,都不是從父來的,乃是從世界來的”(約翰一書 2:16)

Reminder 5
What are the attributes of a Christian Life? One key aspect of it is the adoration and praising  our Lord Jesus Christ for what He did in the past; and what he is doing now; and what He will do  in future for us individually and collectively. Through the events in our lives, we truly recognize His preciousness in our eternal blessings including that by God's love to us, He has become for us wisdom from God--that is , our righteousness, holiness, and redemption.(1 Corinthians 1: 30) So one key aspect of Christian Life is among events in our daily living, praise  Him for His love, for His provision, protection, and for kindness and fellowship in our weaknesses,…….. God promises us that as we fix our eyes on Jesus Christ's glory, we will be transformed into His likeness from one level of glory onto ever-increasing glory. (2 Corinthians 3:18)

 

提醒5


什麼是基督徒生命的屬性?它的一個重要特質是崇拜,讚美我們的主耶穌基督,為祂在過去、現在和將來,為我們個人和集體的所成就的大工献上感恩。經由我們的生命中的種種事件,我們真正認識到祂給我們永恆祝福的珍貴,包括經由神的大愛,神使祂成為我們的智慧、公義、聖潔、救贖。(哥林多前書 1:30)
所以,基督徒生命的一個重要特質是,在我們的日常生活事件中,要讚美祂的愛,祂的供應,祂的保護,以及在我們的懦弱時的關懷與支持........神應許我們,當我們定睛不離耶穌基督的榮耀,我們將在榮耀中變成主的形狀,榮上加榮,如同從主的靈變成的。(哥林多後書3:18)

 

Reminder 6


Another aspect of Christian Life is the conflicts and the choice between loving Christ and loving self in our daily encounters. Our Lord graciously encourages us to self denial and carry our cross and follow Him. Open your eyes and watch the world carefully. You will certainly see two life styles: one pursuing self-love in gaining wealth, power, lust, and fame; and the other seeking self-denial to love Jesus Christ our Lord. In other word, there are two ways of living; one without God, and one with God. 

Do you know that Jesus Christ warns the true seekers  with the following reminder:

Matthew 7:13-14
The Narrow and Wide Gates
13 “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. 14 For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.

 

 

提醒6

基督徒生命的另一個特質是在我們日常接觸中,常會面臨、要選擇愛基督與自我之間的衝突。我們的主、慈悲地鼓勵我們要捨己、和背著我們的十字架跟從祂。睜開你的眼睛,仔細看世界,你肯定會看到兩個生活方式:一種是在用獲得財富、權力、慾望和名利,來追求、滿足自戀;另一種是尋求捨己,來愛我們的主耶穌基督。換句話說,生活有兩種方式:一個沒有神,另一個與神同在。

 

 

你知道耶穌基督在下列提醒中、警告尋求真理者:

 

馬太福音 7:13-14
兩條門路
13 「你們要進窄門。因為引到滅亡,那門是寬的,路是大的,進去的人也多; 14 引到永生,那門是窄的,路是小的,找著的人也少。

 

Reminder 7


What to do
If you are a truth seeker and are attracted by the matchless glory of Jesus Christ our Lord and want to know Him more, please visit a Bible loving church to see more. You can visit this website more and learn why we love Jesus Christ as our ultimate treasure and enjoy endless sweet fellowship with Him. If you can not find a local church for whatever reason, please find a Bible and read it, starting first on the gospel of John in New Testament. Please listen to the sermon webpage and sing along with the hymn songs in the web site as well. Do pray to God to help you.

 

If you are a professed Christian and has not yet experience or know how to love Christ more and more each day and how to fellowship with Him each day, we would recommend that you join a small group of believers and be enriched by your brothers and sisters. If you do not yet belong to a small bible study group in your church or want to learn more, we encourage you to visit this site more and more and do read the Bible daily and pray watchfully always. In any event, we are encouraged that you can visit this free web site and hope that you communicate with us when you are free to do so. We love to be enriched by your fellowship as the Scripture reminders us:
1 John 3:11
11 For this is the message which you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another;
