Simple Gospel Presentation 簡單介紹福音

Have you ever dropped your phone on the ground and cracked the screen or realized you splashed food on your shirt while you were eating?
你的手機曾經不小心掉到地上,結果螢幕破掉嗎?或者吃東西吃到一半,才發現湯汁濺到衣服上了?

When we buy our clothing and technology, we will spend a small fortune if we know it's of excellent quality. Over time, however, all of us know that our things will get dirty. It's only a matter of time before we get that first dent or scratch.
當我們買衣服或科技產品,如果東西的品質很好,我們會願意花上一筆錢買下它。然而,我們都知道一個定律:物質一定會變髒變舊,只差在第一個刮痕或破洞來得快還是慢。

No matter how hard we try in this life to do the right things, we always end up making mistakes, offending others, and feeling inadequate and exhausted. The deepest stains and cracks can only be fixed by the God who made us in the beginning.
人生中,不論我們有多拼命想把事情做好,還是會犯錯、冒犯別人,最後把矛頭指向自己──認為自己不夠好,感到身心俱疲。而生命中最深層的汙點和最破碎裂痕,只有上帝能洗淨和修補,那位起初創造我們的神。

God created us good just as he is good. He created us to always be good in relationship with him. However, we have sinned, intentionally and unintentionally and if we are really honest, we know we are broken people.
上帝用祂美好的形象創造出美好的我們,並期望我們與祂維持親密的關係,但人類卻犯了罪,不論是有意的,或者是出自無知,如果我們足夠坦誠,就會知道自己其實是一個破碎的人。

But thank God that he came into human history as a man, Jesus Christ, to show us how to live. Thank God that Jesus was willing to take on our filth and brokenness, yes even becoming sin on the cross when he died for the sins of the world. And thank God that he rose again three days later in victory over death, totally clean from any of the effects of sin.
但感謝神,祂化成人的形象來到世界,也就是耶穌基督,在歷史上劃下記號,親自來教導我們如何活著;感謝神,讓耶穌願意接納我們的汙點和裂痕,甚至承擔世人的罪死在十字架上;感謝神,三天後祂復活了,勝過死亡,也完全清除了罪惡帶來的所有後果。

Jesus wants to forgive us and cleanse us, but we must accept his sacrifice for us. We have to choose to believe in him and him alone for our forgiveness and restoration. Jesus gives us a new life when we make him our Lord and follow him wholeheartedly.
耶穌想原諒我們並潔淨我們,但我們必須接受他為我們所作的犧牲,必須相信耶穌,相信單單信靠祂就能得到寬恕和更新。當我們願意讓耶穌成為我們的主,全心全意地跟隨祂的道路,嶄新的生命便開始了,耶穌將給我們意想不到的新生命。

Praise God alone who is good. Glory to our blessed creator, now and forevermore. Amen.
單單讚美上帝,只有祂是美好的。榮耀歸於我們受祝福的創造者,從此刻直到永恆。阿門。
