Sermon Recap

当耶稣邀请我们舍己和背起十字架的时候,祂不是告诉我们,“你们自己去上十字架好了。”
耶稣说:“人子必须受许多的苦,被长老、祭司长,和文士弃绝,并且被杀,过三天复活。”
当耶稣说这句话的时候,其实大概一年之后,祂就被钉死在十字架。
舍己是我们必须放弃,就是要否决我们自己所要的。
如果我们要上帝这一块,我们就必须放弃我们这一块。
如果我们要上帝的国和上帝的义,我们就必须放弃自己的世界,并且否决这世界的好处,还有自己向往的喜好。
跟随耶稣基督就是放弃个人的意愿。
为什么要放弃个人的意愿?
因为有更好的指标,有更好的方向,更好的道路,更好的指标、梦想和伟大的事等着我们去迎接。
放下小的、短暂的、虚空的来去换取永恒和宝贵的。
