Who is God looking for? 神在尋找誰? Genesis‬ ‭3:9‬ ‭NLT‬‬ “Then the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?” 創世紀 3章9節 (NCV) 耶和華 神呼喚那人,對他說:“你在哪裡?” 1. God is looking for the weak 1 神在尋找軟弱的人 1 Corinthians‬ ‭1:27‬ ‭GW‬‬ “But God chose what the world considers nonsense to put wise people to shame. God chose what the world considers weak to put what is strong to shame.” 哥林多前書1章27節 (NCV) 但是 神卻揀選了世上愚笨的,使那些有智慧的羞愧。他也揀選了世上軟弱的,使那些剛強的羞愧。 2. When we know our weaknesses, God will give us strength. 2 當我們認知自己的軟弱,神會給我們力量 ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:9-10‬ ‭NLT‬‬ “Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 哥林多後書12章9-10節(NCV) 他卻對我說:“我的恩典是夠你用的,因為我的能力在人的軟弱上顯得完全。”所以,我更喜歡誇自己的軟弱,好讓基督的能力臨到我的身上。因此,我為基督的緣故,就以軟弱、凌辱、艱難、迫害、困苦為喜樂,因為我甚麼時候軟弱,甚麼時候就剛強了。 Philippians‬ ‭4:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬ “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.” 腓立比書4章13節 (CUV) 我靠著那加給我力量的、凡事都能作。 3. All we need to do is respond to Him 3 我們只需要去回應祂 Isaiah‬ ‭40:31‬ ‭NLT‬‬ “But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” 以賽亞書 40章31節(NCV) 但那些仰望耶和華的人,必重新得力;他們必像鷹一樣展翅上騰;他們奔跑,也不困倦,他們行走,也不疲乏。
