“Christianity Is What Christ Says It Is 基督教正是基督所說它是甚麽“（Colossians 歌羅西書 3:1-4）
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
Christianity is what Christ says it is: faith in Christ, trust in His promises and obedience to His commandments, resting down squarely upon the Person of Christ. What He is, what He did and what He is doing provide a full guarantee that the Christian’s hopes are valid. His power becomes operative toward us as we accept His words as final and yield our souls to believe and obey. When Christ arose from death and ascended into heaven He established forever that this world has been condemned to ultimate dissolution, that the human spirit persists beyond the grave and that there is indeed a world to come!
Prayer: God our Creator, we confess that if we have not acted just as Lord Jesus did when He was resurrected, such as remaining in our ‘tomb’ no more, living our lives to be with and to serve one another with the power and the enabling of the Holy Spirit, recognizing our citizenship in heaven, etc., we would be unconscious of our eternal destiny and might hold our time on earth so lightly that we could become your army deserters. Forgive us and help us to be ready to suffer and even give up any earthly things for Christ’s gospel. Amen.
