“因为从里面,就是从人心里,发出恶念、苟合、 偷盗、凶杀、奸淫、贪婪、邪恶、诡诈、淫荡、嫉妒、谤讟、骄傲、狂妄。 这一切的恶都是从里面出来,且能污秽人。”马可福音 7:21-23

For from with, out of the heart…come evil thoughts, fornication, theft,murder,adultery,coveting,wickedness,deceit, licentiousness, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a man. 

 Mark 7:21-23 RSV

耶稣指明了,我们的问题都是从心里发出来的。我们一些大城市最需要的,是福音广传。在外邦的、世俗的、沦丧的、暴力的大城市哥林多,保罗大声疾呼:“我们却是传钉在十字架的基督,在犹太人为绊脚石,在外邦人为愚拙; 但在那蒙召的,无论是犹太人、希腊人,基督总为神的能力,神的智慧。”(林前 1:23-24)今天,人类依然急需福音的拯救。没有属灵的觉醒,世界永远不会改变;不把耶稣基督摆在我们宣讲和实践的中心,我们永远也不会实现属灵的觉醒。

David Brainerd从事印第安人事工。他说,我从来没有离开耶稣和十字架的主题。我发现人们只要抓住了十字架的真理,我就不需要再教他们什么伦理道德。他们一个接一个顺服基督,结出义的果子。Dorothy Sayers说,我们花了几个世纪的时间,试图树立建立一个伦理道德的标准和价值观。而事实上每一个标准都来自基督的教义。如果我们希望这个世界有基督徒的行为准则,就必须认识到,这些都根植在基督的信仰里面。司布真说,在这个世界不背起十字架的,到天堂也不会有冠冕等着他。

Jesus indicated that our problem is heart trouble. The greatest need of our great cities at this moment is evangelism. The apostle Paul stood in the heart of pagan, secular, immoral, and violent Corinth and said, “We preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks [Gentiles]foolishness; but unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God” (1 Corinthians 1:23-24).The proclamation of the Gospel is still the desperate need of men today. We are never going to reverse the moral trends without a spiritual awakening, and we are never going to have a spiritual awakening until the Cross of Jesus Christ is central in all our teaching, preaching, and practice.

David Brainerd, in the journal of his life and work among the American Indians, said, “I never got away from Jesus and Him crucified. And I found that when my people were gripped by this great evangelical doctrine of Christ and Him crucified, I had no need to give them instructions about morality. I found that one followed as the sure and inevitable fruit of the other.”Dorothy Sayers says, “We have been trying for several centuries to uphold a particular standard of ethical values which derives from Christian dogma, while gradually dispensing with the very dogma which is the sole foundation for those values. If we want Christian behavior, then we must realize that Christian behavior is rooted in Christian belief.”As Spurgeon points out, “There are no crown-wearers in heaven who were not cross-bearers here below.”
