Introduction

介紹

 

1. God created humans to enjoy a world with NO

PAIN, sickness, death, crime, loneliness or broken

relationships. He ENTRUSTED that earth to the

management of early humans.

上帝創造了人類,享受一個沒有

痛苦,疾病,死亡,犯罪,孤獨或破裂

關係的世界。他交付地球給

早期的人類管理。

 

God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and

increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over

the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every

living creature that moves on the ground.”Then God said, “I

give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole

earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will

be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all

the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the

ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give

every green plant for food.” And it was so.

Genesis 1:28-30

   

神就赐福给他们,又对他们说,要生养众多,遍满地面,治理这地。也要管理海里的鱼,空中的鸟,和地上各样行动的活物。

 
   

神说,看哪,我将遍地上一切结种子的菜蔬和一切树上所结有核的果子,全赐给你们作食物。

 
   

至于地上的走兽和空中的飞鸟,并各样爬在地上有生命的物,我将青草赐给它们作食物。事就这样成了。

 

创世记1:28-30

 

2. Because He is loving, God gave early humans the choice

to have it God’s way, or not. There is no LOVE without

choice.

因為他是愛,上帝給了早期人類選擇

要用上帝的方式,還是不要。沒有選擇,就沒有



The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden

of Eden to work it and take care of it. And the Lord God

commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree

in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the

knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will

certainly die.

Genesis 2:15-17

耶和华神将那人安置在伊甸园,使他修理看守。

耶和华神吩咐他说,园中各样树上的果子,你可以随意吃。

只是分别善恶树上的果子,你不可吃,因为你吃的日子必定死。

创世记2:15-17

 

3. When a deceiver lied about God, HUMANCHOSE

to reject God’s way, infecting our world with PAIN AND

DEATH. This contamination has been spreading for

ages, infecting every molecule, plant, body, animal and

weather pattern.

當一个说谎者诬蔑神,人類選擇

拒絕上帝的方式,让我們的世界感染了痛苦 與

死亡。這種污染已蔓延了

很久,感染每一個分子,植物,人體,動物和

天氣模式。

 

You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the

woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes

will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and

evil.” When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was

good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable

for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave

some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.

Genesis 3:4-6

   

蛇对女人说,你们不一定死,

 
   

因为神知道,你们吃的日子眼睛就明亮了,你们便如神能知道善恶。

 
   

于是女人见那棵树的果子好作食物,也悦人的眼目,且是可喜爱的,能使人有智慧,就摘下果子来吃了。又给她丈夫,她丈夫也吃了。

 

创世记3:4-6



To Adam [God] said…

“Cursed is the ground because of you;

through painful toil you will eat food from it

all the days of your life.

It will produce thorns and thistles for you,

and you will eat the plants of the field.

By the sweat of your brow

you will eat your food

until you return to the ground,

since from it you were taken;

for dust you are

and to dust you will return.

Genesis 3:17-19

   

[神]又对亚当说,你既听从妻子的话,吃了我所吩咐你不可吃的那树上的果子,地必为你的缘故受咒诅。你必终身劳苦,才能从地里得吃的。

 
   

地必给你长出荆棘和蒺藜来,你也要吃田间的菜蔬。

 
   

你必汗流满面才得糊口,直到你归了土,因为你是从土而出的。你本是尘土,仍要归于尘土。

 

创世记3:17-19



Take Away 1: We are born into an infected creation —

created perfect but ruined by sin. This CHANGES our

EXPECTATIONS.

学习1:我們生于一个被感染的創作物 -

創造是完美的,但被罪惡毀了。這改變我們的

期望

 

Take Away 2: We often blame God for pain and suffering

brought onto us by the CHOICES of ourselves or others.

学习2:我們經常埋怨上帝

通過自己或他人的選擇所帶給我們的痛苦和折磨。



Where does your pain come from? Trace it back far enough,

and your pain is rooted in this ORIGINAL infection.

你的痛苦從何而来?追根溯源,

你的痛苦是植根於這原始的感染

 


 

The Next Natural Question:

下一個自然的問題:



If God is good, is He going to fix our pain and

brokenness?

如果上帝是好的,他會解決我們的痛苦及破碎吗?

When God saw humanity trapped in the rubble of sin

He STEP DOWN into the brokenness, to

CREATE a way of ESCAPE.

當上帝看到人類被困在罪惡的廢墟中

降身進入破碎,

創造逃脫的方式。

 

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only

Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have

eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to

condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

John 3:16,17

神爱世人,甚至将他的独生子赐给他们,叫一切信他的,不至灭亡,反得永生

因为神差他的儿子降世,不是要定世人的罪,(或作审判世人下同)乃是要叫世人因他得救

约翰福音3:16,17

 


 

God’s Twofold rescue plan:

上帝的雙重拯救計劃:

 

1. SUSTAINING STRENGTH within the

rubble, as we await final rescue. (next week’s message)

在瓦礫中給予力量支持下去

我們等待最終的救助。(下週的消息)

2. Complete RESCUEOUTof the rubble of sin,

available through Christ.

從罪的瓦礫中完全地拯救出來

通過基督。



But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we

were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8

惟有基督在我们还作罪人的时候为我们死,神的爱就在此向我们显明了

罗马书5:8



Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No

one comes to the Father except through me.”

John 14:6

耶稣说,我就是道路,真理,生命。若不借着我。没有人能到父那里去。

约翰福音14:6



How to Step into the Rescue Capsule:

如何步入救生艙:

 

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe

in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be

saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are

justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith

and are saved.

Romans 10:9,10

你若口里认耶稣为主,心里信神叫他从死里复活,就必得救

因为人心里相信,就可以称义。口里承认,就可以得救

罗马书10:9,10

Application/Discussion Questions

應用/討論問題

 

1. What pain, struggle, sickness or difficulty are you

dealing with in your life presently?

什麼痛苦,掙扎,疾病或困難是你

目前生活正在對付的?

 

2. We learned from Genesis 1-3 about the root of all pain

and death in our world. Was this story new to you?

我們從創世紀1-3了解在我們的世界中所有痛苦和死亡的根源。

這故事对你是新的吗?

 

3. Take a moment to read the Scriptures listed after

the question: If God is good, is He going to fix our

pain and brokenness? Jesus describes faith in

Him as the only way out of the brokenness of this

collapsed world. Have you told God that you believe

in Jesus and want to trust Him to rescue you?

花點時間閱讀後列出的聖經問題:

如果上帝是善的,他會解決我們疼痛和破碎吗?

耶穌描述对神的信心,是在瓦解的世界中脱离破碎的唯一途徑。

你告訴过上帝你相信耶穌,想要相信祂會救你?
