圣灵和新妇都说:“来!”听见的人也该说:“来!”口渴的人也当来;愿意的,都可以白白取生命的水喝。(启示录 22:17)

保罗·华许 – 归向基督,祂有能力拯救

这个女士住在里约热内卢附近,她很贫穷,住在泥土地的房子里
她最大的担心是她有一个非常非常漂亮的女儿,她知道
有一天她的女儿会离开这个房子
到里约热内卢去尝试
过更好的生活。并且她知道如果女儿去那里的话会发生什么,一天
这位女士回到家,发现她的女儿走了。桌子上有张纸条,写着:
“我去里约谋生了。”这位母亲知道会发生什么。她拿上自己所有的钱
t买了一张去里约热内卢的汽车票,然后去了一家小照相馆
照相亭,这位母亲在那里花了很多钱,只是给自己拍照
之后这位母亲去了里约热内卢,在那里待了几个月。她去了
所有的旅店、所有的饭店、所有的电影院,所有的迪厅
在所去的每个地方留下她的照片。最终她花光了身上所有的钱
回到了家。一天夜里,她的女儿正从一间旅馆的楼梯上走下来
和一个男人在一起,她成为了一个妓女。她看起来好像变老了15岁
她正在下楼,觉得自己好像快死了。但当她瞥过
看看自己是如何变老的,有什么东西吸引了她的注意,是一张她妈妈的照片
她拿过来,不敢相信,她把照片反过来
后面写着:“我不在乎你变成了什么,我不在乎你做了什么”
回家吧。我相当了解神的主权、伟大的告白
并且信奉这些,我知道神的拣选和预定,以及我所信的
但当我查看新约的时候,我听到神说:
我不在乎你成为什么,我不在乎你做了什么,我的儿子
已经在十字架上为这一切付了代价,现在,回家吧。年轻人,你们当中有些人
正在毁掉你们的生命。有些成年人承受着那些由于生命中的罪而永远不会脱去的伤痕,
有些人只是把基督信仰当做
死的宗教,但是我服侍的是一个活的上帝,他差派了一位活的救主,并且他呼召
人们转离他们的罪,归向他。那些归向他的,他不会
抛弃。信靠基督,他是大有能力的救主,不要让任何事情
妨碍你。去认识他。对我来说最遗憾的事情之一是
讲道。传讲神的爱令人很难过,因为无论你多么努力地尝试
你都无法向罪人描述神的爱。神就是爱
他预备了一位救主。如果你不归向他,就是你的错了
启示录22:17 听见的人也要说:“来!”口渴的人也要来!愿意的人都要白白接受生命的水!

Paul Washer – Come to Christ, He is Mighty to Save

This woman made her living outside of Rio de Janeiro.
She was very poor, dirt floor house
and her greatest fear was that… she had a beautiful beautiful daughter
and she knew that one day her daughter would leave that house
and go to Rio de Janeiro to try to make a better life
and she knew what would happen to her daughter if she went there.
One day the woman came home and her daughter was gone.
There was a note on the table that said “I’ve gone to Rio to find a life.”
The mother knew what would happen.
She took all the money that she had
she bought a bus ticket to Rio de Janeiro
and then she went into a little photo booth
and she spent a great deal of her money, the mother did just making pictures of herself
and then the mother went to Rio de Janeiro and spent months there.
She looked in every hotel, every restaurant,
every movie house, all the disco techs
every where she looked and every where she went she left a picture of her face.
Finally she ran out of money and she went home.
One night her daughter was coming down the stairs of a hotel
She was with a man.
She had become a prostitute, she looked like she had aged 15 years
and as shes coming down the stairs.
She feels like shes going to die
but she looks over in the mirror
she sees how shes aged and something catches her eye.
She sees a picture of her mother, she grabs it, she cant believe it
and she turns it over
and on the back she read this:
I do not care what you have become
and I do not care what you have done please come home.
I know all about the sovereignty of God, about the great confessions
and I am embrace them all.
I know about election and predestination and all those things I believe
but at the same time when I look in the New Testament
this is what I here God saying:
I don’t care what you have become and I don’t care what you have done
My Son has paid for it all on the cross, now come home!
Some of you young people out here are going to ruin your life.
Some of you adults bear scars that will never be removed
because of the sin in your life
and some of you the only thing you’ve ever seen of Christianity is a dead religion
but I serve a living God who has sent us a living Savior
and He calls all men to turn from their sin and come back to Him
and those who come to Him He will not cast out.
Trust in Christ.
He is such a Savior!
He’s mighty to save!
Don’t let anything stand between you and coming to know Him.
One of the saddest things I ever have to do
Is preach, preach about the love of God.
It is so sad because no matter how hard you try to preach
You cannot describe the love of God for sinful men.
God is love!
And He has provided a Savior
and if you don’t come to Him the fault will be yours.
Revelation 22:17 come and let the one who hears say come and let the one who is thirsty come let the one who take the water of life without price.
