Golden Verse 金句

For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom,  but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, 
                                                                         1 Corinthians 1:22-23

猶 太 人 是 要 神 蹟 , 希 利 尼 人 是 求 智 慧 ,
 我 們 卻 是 傳 釘 十 字 架 的 基 督 , 在 猶 太 人 為 絆 腳 石 , 在 外 邦 人 為 愚 拙 ;


                                                       歌 林 多 前 書 1:22-23

     What I got today from Jesus is: No divisions, quarrelling, but be united in the Lord

     What I received from Jesus today is the real secret to have unity in a church. If you were Paul, what would you do in the situation that there were divisions, quarrelling and other problems in a church you personally found and stayed there for 1 1/2 year? Difficult, right?

     Right in the beginning Paul told them that they knew they had divisions, quarrelling and other problems. Paul skillfully pulled everything together trying to tell those Christians in Corinth that if they wanted to solve that problem, they had to be united in the Lord. No other way!

     In Jesus, everything comes together. In Jesus, there is unity. In Jesus, there is love. In Jesus, there is sharing, sacrificing and dying. 

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to be in you that we are able to stop all kinds of divisions, quarrelling, pride, bitterness, jealousy and self-centreness.   In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
