Old Things Pass: All Things Become New 舊事過去:一切都變成新的了“(2 Corinthians 哥林多後書 4:7-10)

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. … We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.

我們有這寶貝在瓦器裡,是要顯明這極大的能力是屬於神,不是出於我們。… 我們身上常常帶著耶穌的死,好讓耶穌的生也在我們的身上顯明出來。

God’s ways and human ways are not equal. Neither learned skills nor tried and proven methods for getting things done in old Adam’s world are of very little use in the spiritual realm or even fail when applying to the work of the Holy Spirit. The new Adam will not surrender to the old Adam nor gear His new creation to the methods of the world. The true Church of God, the company of the forgiven and regenerated, yielded to analysis by the historian or the psychologist is the very thing that does not signify the earthen vessel in which the precious treasure is contained. The treasure itself transcends the art of man to comprehend! Those who follow on to know the Lord discover that the old things will pass away and all things will become new!


Prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for shining the light of your gospel and truth into our hearts, giving us hope, salvation, new life, a clear conscience, and power to live aright for you. Let your light shine through us into others’ hearts that they may find you as their light and salvation. Amen.

禱告: 親愛的主耶穌,感謝你福音真理的光照亮我們的內心,帶給我們希望、救恩、新生命、清醒的良知和能力去為你而正直地生活。容讓你的光輝透過我們照進別人的內心,以致他們會尋得著你,作為他們的光和救恩。阿們。
