再思轉向神: Rethinking Turning Back to God

律法是神與人立約的內容,也是神性情的彰顯; 基督徒是小基督,我們的責任是彰顯基督,不要成為一個沒有信息的使者,沒有基督的基督徒,唯一的方法就是回轉歸向神。

The covenant between God and man is embodied by the Laws, which are also a manifestation of God’s nature. This week, Rev. Jeremiah Cheung reminds us that Christians are “little Christs” and it is our responsibility to manifest Christ. Let us return to God lest we be messengers without a message or Christians without Christ.
