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。(约3:16)

“你们要先求他的国和他的义,这些东西都要加给你们了。”马太福音 6:33

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33

我深信圣经所说的是对的,就是耶和华改变我们的内心。在今天的世界,无论在语言上、文化上还是种族上,我们都在分裂。我们只是邻居,而不再是兄弟。但是,在属灵的世界,我们还是可以成为一家人。在神里面,我们心意相通。我们内心的需要不是来自这个世界,而是来自神。

也许你会觉得很难理解,一个宣教士要在全球传扬十字架的真理。耶稣也说了,天国的门是窄的。从数学和化学上看,我们人都是窄的(严格)。如果我们不是窄的,我们早就搞得一团糟。我们的心思也要窄。飞行员不能马虎大意。那为什么我们在道德和属灵生命上不能严格要求自己呢?基督与众不同,因为他是神的儿子,改变我们的生命。

许多智者在问,世界要到哪里去?他们在猜测世界的结果。我相信基督的祷告:愿你的国降临,愿你的旨意行在地上,如同行在天上。这是你我都会的祷告。这个祷告会得到神的回答。当人类走到堕落的边缘,几乎自我灭亡的时候,我相信神要再次干预历史。任何一个地上的领袖都不可能谱写历史的最后一章。只有神自己来写。我相信未来的国度属于神,人类的命运超越我们的梦想。但是,那是神的国度,也要按照神的旨意和计划实现。

I have become confirmed in my belief that the Bible is right in saying that God has fashioned the hearts of men alike. We are not together in today’s world linguistically, culturally, or racially. We are divided. We have become a neighborhood without being a brotherhood. Yet there is one area in which I am convinced we are all alike-the spiritual dimension. I believe the hearts of all of us are the same. Our deep needs are identical the world over, for they come from within. Our need is God.

Probably it sounds a bit intolerant and narrow to you for an evangelist to go around the planet preaching the Cross-and you are right; for Jesus said that the gate to the kingdom of heaven is narrow. But we are narrow also in mathematics and in chemistry. If we weren’t narrow in chemistry we would be blowing the place up. We have to be narrow. I am glad that pilots are not so broad-minded that they come into an airport any way they want.Why then should we not be narrow when it comes to moral laws and spiritual dimensions? I believe that Christ is different; that He is unique. I believe that He is the Son of the living God and that He did change my life.

Many intellectuals are asking where history is going; they are speculation on what the end will be. I believe that Christ’s prayer, “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven”-the prayer that you and I often pray-is going to be answered. And when the human race stands at the edge of the abyss, ready to blow itself apart, I believe God will intervene in history again. I don’t believe any world leader will write the last chapter of history. I believe God will write it. I believe that the future kingdom is to be the kingdom of God, that there is a destiny for the human race far beyond anything we can dream. But it will be God’s kingdom and will come in God’s way.
