You Will Find Christ Everywhere in the Bible 聖經裡隨處都可找到基督“(1 Corinthians 哥林多前書 8:4-6)

… we know that ‘An idol is nothing at all in the world’ and that ‘There is no God but one.’ For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many ‘gods’ and many ‘lords’), yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.

… 我們知道世上的偶像算不得甚麼,也知道神只有一位,沒有別的神。雖然有被稱為神的,無論在天上或在地上(就如有許多的“神”許多的“主”),然而我們只有一位神,就是父;萬物都是從他而來,我們也為了他而活。我們也只有一位主,就是耶穌基督;萬物都是藉著他而有的,我們也是藉著他而有的。

It was God’s design that we should find the divine Creator, Redeemer and Lord whenever we search the Scriptures. The Son of God is described by almost every fair and worthy name in the creation. Where the person of Jesus Christ does not stand out eye-catching, we will find Him behind the lattice, but stretching forth His hand. If He does not appear as the sun shining in his strength, He may be discerned in the reviving by the promised gentle rains. Our Lord Jesus Christ was that One divinely commissioned to set forth the mystery and the majesty and the wonder and the glory of the Godhead throughout the universe. It is more than an accident that both the Old and New Testaments comb heaven and earth for figures of speech or simile to set forth the wonder and glory of God!


Prayer: God of Trinity, thank you for your wonderful names which remind us of your sovereignty, your providence and the fullness of your salvation. Lord Jesus Christ, each of your great names means life, strength and eternal security to us that we praise you, the King of kings who became the suffering servant for our salvation. May the Holy Spirit teach us to hear your promptings better and rely on your power to live lives of righteousness, peace and joy. Amen.
