再思真敬虔: Rethinking True Godliness

真正的敬虔必須先將神放在對的位置上,然後再以對態度與對的方法來事奉祂。因為神所要的敬虔, 不是外表的敬虔,而是從裡到外敬虔的行動。

True godliness begins when we accord to God his rightful position and serve Him with the right attitude and in the right way. This week, Rev. Jeremiah Cheung reminds us that the Lord seeks from us the godliness that comes from within and manifests outwardly.
