*Reflectors of Jesus*

(2Corinthians 3:13-18 NKJV) unlike Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the end of what was passing away. (14) But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ. (15) But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. (16) Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. (17) Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. (18) But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord
哥林多後書3:13 – 18 RCUV
不像摩西將面紗蒙在臉上,使以色列人不能定睛看到那逐漸褪色的榮光的結局。(14) 但他們的心地剛硬,直到今日誦讀舊約的時候,這同樣的面紗還沒有揭去;因為這面紗在基督裡才被廢去。(15) 然而直到今日,每逢誦讀摩西書的時候,面紗還在他們心上。(16) 但他們的心何時歸向主,面紗就何時除去。(17) 主就是那靈;主的靈在哪裡,哪裡就有自由。(18) 既然我們眾人以揭去面紗的臉得以反映主的榮光,好像從鏡子裡返照,就變成了與主有同樣的形像,榮上加榮,如同從主的靈變成的。

Christian life is supernatural - always!
基督徒的生活是超自然的 - 永遠都是!

(Ezekiel 36:26-28 NKJV) I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. (27) I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. (28) Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God.
以西結書36:26 – 28 RCUV
我也要賜給你們一顆新心,將新靈放在你們裡面,又從你們的肉體中除掉石心,賜給你們肉心。(27) 我必將我的靈放在你們裡面,使你們順從我的律例,謹守遵行我的典章。(28) 你們必住在我所賜給你們祖先之地;你們要作我的子民,我要作你們的神。

(John 3:1-8 NKJV) There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. (2) This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.” (3) Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (4) Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” (5) Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. (6) That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. (7) Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ (8) The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
約翰福音3:1 – 8 RCUV
有一個法利賽人,名叫尼哥德慕,是猶太人的官。(2) 這人夜裡來見耶穌,對他說:「拉比,我們知道你是由神那裡來作老師的;因為你所行的神蹟,若沒有神同在,無人能行。」(3) 耶穌回答他說:「我實實在在地告訴你,人若不重生,就不能見神的國。」(4) 尼哥德慕對他說:「人已經老了,如何能重生呢?豈能再進母腹生出來嗎?」(5) 耶穌回答:「我實實在在地告訴你,人若不是從水和聖靈生的,就不能進神的國。(6) 從肉身生的就是肉身;從靈生的就是靈。(7) 我說『你們必須重生』,你不要驚訝。(8) 風隨著意思吹,你聽見風的聲音,卻不知道是從哪裡來,往哪裡去;凡從聖靈生的也是如此。」
Our one part is an “unveiled face”

(1John 1:5-7 NKJV) This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. (6) If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. (7) But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
約翰一書1:5 – 7 RCUV
神就是光,在他毫無黑暗;這是我們從主所聽見,又報給你們的信息。(6) 我們若說,我們與神有團契,卻仍在黑暗裡行走,就是說謊話,不實行真理了。(7) 我們若在光明中行走,如同神在光明中,就彼此有團契,他兒子耶穌的血就洗淨我們一切的罪。

(John 1:17 NKJV) For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
約翰福音 1:17 RCUV

(Mark 2:17 NKJV) When Jesus heard it, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”
馬可福音2:17 RCUV
