Born Again by Rev. David Tse

by Literature

I find the famous story of Nicodemus seeking out the Lord Jesus Christ in the middle of the night as recorded in John 3 so fascinating. He must have followed Jesus around to know where He lived. He must have been contemplating paying a visit for a period of time before he actually took action. Furthermore, the exchange between Nicodemus and Jesus was extremely interesting. Jesus could see through him and knew his every thought and doubt and need. For the purpose of this magazine, I want to focus on verses 5 to 8.

主复活带来的更新 by 金德培牧師

by Literature

耶稣从死里复活是事实,是基督教信仰的中心,普世的教会就是在此事实上建立起来的。可以这样说,没有这个事实,也就没有今天的教会。

为何言复活是如此的重要呢?因为藉着主耶稣基督从死里复活,我们知道天国已进入了人类的历史中;我们知道神的大能已经粉碎罪恶;我们知道主从死里复活已经制伏了死亡;我们知道每一个信主的人也会从死里复活,并进入永恒,与主同享屬天的荣耀;我们知道我们所信靠的主耶稣基督是又真又活的神。

認識奇妙的創造者 by Cindy

by Literature

来到中央浸信会首次聆听到 神的话语,开始懂得世人是罪人两字的真正含义。但对于宇宙间到底有没有 神?有谁见过?我能不能见?一直困惑着,反复思考着。好比以前接受“人类由人猿进化而来”时一样。信与不信经常在自己脑中反复着。

由于从懂事起接受的教育都是以无神论主导的系列。因此,毫无疑问地認为世界万物均以物质为基础,生物也源于物种进化。自己没能力用已知的科学释疑。更因自己懂得太少无法自圆其说,就这样将信将疑地渡过了大半辈子人生。

足球場上認識主 by Joseph Chu

by Literature

我相信神在我身上有祂的一套計劃,並不是以我眼光和智慧能猜度的。而我願意、及我能做的就是遵從耶穌及聖經的教導,像提摩太後書2:21裡教導人要自潔,脫離神眼裡為卑賤的事,成為合主心意的聖潔器皿,預備行各樣的善事。

A good child becoming God’s child by Ronald Ho

by Literature

Hi, my name is Ronald and before I begin I want to make clear from the start that this story isn’t about me, it’s about God – God, who created and holds the entire universe in His palm, God who sent his son Jesus to die for my sins on the cross, God, who I stand before you to declare today, is the King of my life. So if there’s anything you take away from the next few minutes, please let it be about God, not about me.

God is real to me by Sarah Chan

by Literature

Very fortunately, I was born in a Christian family. So I’ve always been going to church and attended Sunday school like all the other kids. I even went to a Christian primary school when I was in HK. As a child, I only saw going to church every Sunday and praying before every meal as… habits – things that I was taught and used to do. Just like everyone else at school who were non-Christians – I lied to teachers; I swore at friends; I cheated during exams. Thinking about it now, I was just… one of a kind – a Sunday Christian.

我的尋愛之旅 by 許非帆

by Literature

我来澳洲已经9年多了,接触教会才两年多。 在这之前我是个无神论者,相信进化论,从来就没有想过真有神的存在以及人会有永生,觉得这是无稽之谈。

Amazing grace? by Nathaniel Kong

by Literature

What is so amazing about grace? Most people would be familiar with the words from the well-known hymn Amazing grace with the text published by John Newton 1779 and later set to the recognisable melody we know today by William Walker in 1835. From testifying Newton’s own personal conversion to his local parishioners, the hymn has become a part of western culture with its popular use as a spiritual anthem in iconic times and tragedy – the anti-slavery and civil rights movements, in military services and memorial events, etc. capturing the human spirit and unity of hope in the midst of struggle. Is our sense of ‘amazing’ grace associated with just a familiar tune, or a deeper meaning that we can personally experience? I’ve turned to Christian author and journalist Philip Yancey’s, ‘What’s so amazing about grace?’ (Christian Book of the Year Award – 1998) to help explore what is so special about this grace.
