“既有人的样子,就自己卑微, 存心顺服,以至于死, 且死在十字架上。“腓立比书 2:8

And being found in fashion as a man, be humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:8

基督福音的核心就是耶稣降世为人、十架拯救和死而复活。耶稣的出生,是为了死亡。他为我们做的,我们自己做不了。他上了十字架,又在死里复活。今天,我们还在苦苦寻求人为的哲学。我们还在为终极的智慧和幸福争论不休。没有结论。当年柏拉图和亚里士多德谈论的,我们现在还在纠结。我们在寻求出路,但没有出口。然而,十字架让我们看见了盼望。我们看见了神的公义、神对罪人的怜悯、神对穷人的仁爱、神对各种紧急情况的回应、神在各种情况下的荣耀和恩典。他可以改变人、改变世界。

苏格兰牧师、神学家Samuel Rutherford,死于1661年。他说,基督的十字架,延伸起来,连接了这个世界和天堂,让他们重新和好;也连接了过去和未来,施行同样的拯救。使徒保罗总结了救恩的全部:“既有人的样子,就自己卑微, 存心顺服,以至于死, 且死在十字架上。“(腓2:8 )

The heart of the Christian Gospel with its incarnation and atonement is in the Cross and the resurrection. Jesus was born to die. Jesus did for man what man cannot do for himself. He did it through the Cross and the resurrection.Today we look for man-made philosophical panaceas. Discussions and debates go on in every center of learning in a search for ultimate wisdom and its resultant happiness. No solution has been found. We still wrestle with the same philosophical problems that concerned Plato and Aristotle.We are searching for a way out of our dilemma, and the universal sign we see is “no exit.” But the Cross presents itself in the midst of our dilemma as our only hope. Here we find the justice of God in perfect satisfaction-the mercy of God extended to the sinner-the love of God covering every need-the power of God for every emergency-the glory of God for every occasion. Here is power enough to transform human nature. Here is power enough to change the world.

Samuel Rutherford, the great Scottish theologian and pastor who died in 1661, put it well when he wrote, “The cross of Christ, on which He was extended, points, in the length of it, to heaven and earth, reconciling them together; and in the breadth of it, to former and following ages, as being equallysalvation to both.” The apostle Paul indeed gave us the summary of salvation when he wrote, “And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”
