* What  is the purpose of our call? 上帝呼召我們的目的是什麼?



What  is the purpose of our call?                                上帝呼召我們的目的是什麼?

What  is the purpose of our call?
In our daily busy activities, even after many hours of the Bible studies, sometimes we forget the basic objective of what we are as a Christian. Within this subject, do we forget what the purpose of our call by God. The Bible clearly teaches us that we were called by God to go after holiness in all our behaviors.
1 Peter 1:15 
15 but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior;

在日常的繁忙活動中,即使經過許多小時的查經學習,有時我們會忘記作為基督徒的基本目標。 在這個主題內,我們是否忘記了上帝呼召我們的目的是什麼。 聖經清楚地告訴我們,上帝呼召我們在所有行為上要追求聖潔。
彼得前書 1:15 ,15 那召你們的既是聖潔,你們在一切所行的事上也要聖潔。


To help us understand this important daily goal, you may remember that man was created in God’s image as taught in ;
Genesis 1:26 
26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

創世記 1:26 ,26 神說:「我們要照著我們的形象,按著我們的樣式造人,使他們管理海裡的魚、空中的鳥、地上的牲畜和全地,並地上所爬的一切昆蟲。」


Thus, to really understand the purpose of our call, we would need to get some limited comprehension of  (1) What “holiness” means ?, and (2) What God’s image means? Perhaps, these two items will be good subjects for your Bible studies group to do a in-depth studies.
But even with our limited understanding right now, just keep in mind and remind us daily We were called by God to be holy in everything we do will truly help us immensely in our daily walk with our holy God. 



Below are a few items may help us:
Seek after holiness should include at least,
    Peter 1:13-14 ,13 Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 14 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance,
    Romans 12:1-2, 12 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.
 What is holiness? The following two references should help. “The Holiness of God” by RC Sproul and “Holy in Christ” by Andrew Murray. Why so important in seeking holiness? Hebrews 12:14 , 14 Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord.

* 彼得前書 1:13-14 應當聖潔因主是聖潔的
13 所以要約束你們的心,謹慎自守,專心盼望耶穌基督顯現的時候所帶來給你們的恩。 14 你們既做順命的兒女,就不要效法從前蒙昧無知的時候那放縱私慾的樣子。
* 羅馬書 12:1-2  獻己於主當做活祭
12 所以弟兄們,我以神的慈悲勸你們,將身體獻上,當做活祭,是聖潔的,是神所喜悅的,你們如此侍奉乃是理所當然的。 2 不要效法這個世界,只要心意更新而變化,叫你們察驗何為神的善良、純全、可喜悅的旨意。
什麼是聖潔? 以下兩個參考應該會有所幫助。
“The Holiness of God” by RC Sproul and “Holy in Christ” by Andrew Murray.
希伯來書 12:14 ,14 你們要追求與眾人和睦,並要追求聖潔,非聖潔沒有人能見主。
