福音導向的人生 Gospel-Driven Life

使徒保羅的人生是向著神的標竿直跑, 為了福音願意捨去所有的權利. 本週, 張國強牧師與我們分享一個以福音為導向的人生是什麼樣子, 以及信徒追求這樣的生活的目標是什麼.

The Apostle Paul was deeply motivated to give up his rights for the sake of the Gospel. This week, Rev. Jeremiah Cheung shares what a Gospel-driven life looks like and why believers should wholeheartedly pursue such a life.

1. Start with a prayer

2. Engage one another (15-30 mins)
• Share a time when you made a sacrifice for your faith. How did it impact your spiritual growth and your relationship with God?

3. Engage the mind (15-20 mins)
• Read the passage. Explain how this relates to matters of liberty tackled in chapter 8.
• What does it mean that the Jews are under the Law (v.20)? Are we as Christians today under the Law as well? Explain and cite Bible passages.

4. Engage the heart (15-20 mins)
• How willing are you to adapt and become “”a servant to all”” as Paul did, in order to share the Gospel with different kinds of people? What encourages and hinders you from doing so?
• Examine yourself: Are you a spectator or participant in the spiritual race? How is God encouraging you to participate in the race and complete the mission He has given you?

5. Engage the hands (15-20 mins)
• Identify one person from a different cultural or social background with whom you can share the Gospel. How can you become a servant to them in a way that respects and honors their context without compromising the Truth?
• What practical steps can you take to join the spiritual race and engage in strict spiritual training to pursue eternal (not temporal) rewards?

6. Engage with God in prayer (20-30 mins)
• Thank the Heavenly Father for His gift of the Gospel, freely given to us through His grace. Praise praise Him for the example of Paul, who willingly sacrificed his rights and became a servant to all for the sake of spreading His Good News. Thank Him for the eternal rewards He has promised to those who faithfully run the race and commit their lives to His mission.
• Approach the Lord in repentance for the times you have clung to your rights and comforts instead of sacrificing for the sake of the Gospel. Ask for forgiveness for the moments when we have failed to serve others as Paul did, and for when we have neglected the spiritual training required to pursue His eternal rewards. Pray that God gives you the strength and compassion to turn away from selfishness and embrace a Gospel-driven life.
