保罗·华许 – 归向基督,祂有能力拯救
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.
