靈魂無價

 

  「我也甘心樂意為你們的靈魂費財費力。」(林後1215

有一次一位新聞記者在印度旅行,參觀布藍德醫生所設立的痲瘋病院,看見他在為一位痲瘋病人洗傷口。回頭他對這宣教士說﹕「就是給我一百萬元一天,我也不幹這種工作。」布藍德回答﹕「若是為著一百萬元一天,我也不幹這種工作。」

一個人的靈魂到底值多少錢?主耶穌說﹕「人若賺得全世界,賠上自己的生命有什麼益處呢?人還能拿什麼換生命呢?」(太1626. 可見人的靈魂在神的眼中是無價的。每一個生命都是神精心的創造,祂的目的是要叫這靈魂愛祂,所以祂可以施恩典於人。整本聖經的主題,就是人藉著神的兒子回到神面前。神的兒女所能為神成就最大的事,就是把人的靈魂帶回神的家中。

孩子小的時候,我們做父母的會為他們考慮這個,預備那個,讓他們衣食不缺。當孩子漸漸長大,我們讓他們學這個,學那個,希望他們得到最好的教育。當孩子唸大學離開家後,我們還在耽心這個,耽心那個。為什麼?因為愛的緣故。我們希望能把最好的給孩子,引導他們走人生的正途。天父也是這樣的愛我們,要把最好的給我們。但天父的愛是要藉著人去傳播。每一個神的兒女都有責任,去宣揚基督的愛與真理。

神呼召我們去傳福音,不是要我們作老師,乃是要作父母。保羅對哥林多教會說﹕「你們學基督的,師傳雖有一萬,為父的卻是不多。因我在基督耶穌裏用福音生了你們。」傳福音就是用我們屬靈的生命去生出另一個屬靈的生命,所要付出的代價是生命的代價。為著一個靈魂的得救,我們開放家庭,花功夫作飯作菜,請人家來聽福音,關心他生活上的需要,幫助他渡過困境,這一切的努力都是出於愛,正如我們願意為兒女費財費力一般。因為靈魂是無價的。

 

Priceless Souls

 

   “So I will very gladly spend for you everything I have and expend myself as well.” (2Cor12: 15)

   Once a journalist was traveling in India.  He visited Dr. Brand’s leper house.  As he watching Dr. Brand washing patient’s wound, he said: “I would not do it, even if you give me a million dollars a day.”  Dr. Brand replied: “I would either for a million dollars a day.”

    How much is a soul worth?  Jesus said: “What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul?  Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matt.16: 26).  From this we know that every  soul is priceless in God’s eyes.  Every soul is God’s delicate creation.  His purpose is to expect the soul to love Him, therefore He can grant him grace.  The theme of the whole Bible is that men can return to God through His Son Jesus Christ.  The greatest thing God’s Children can achieve is to bring souls back to God’s house.

    When our children are young, we  parents try to make them comfortable.  When our children grow up, we send them to learn different things, to have the best education.  When children leave home to college, we begin to worry.  Why?  Because it is love.  We want our children to have the best and to walk on the right path of life.  The heavenly Father is likewise.  He loves us and wants to give the best to us.  However, His love has to be shared through men.  All God’s children has the responsibility to share Christ’s love and truth.

   God calls us to preach the Gospel, not to be teacher, but parents.  Paul told Corinthians : “Even though you have ten thousand guardians in Christ, you do not have many fathers, for in Christ Jesus I became your father through the Gospel.”  To preach the Gospel is to use our spiritual life to produce another spiritual life.  The price is life.  We open our house, make dinner, invite friend, preach Gospel, care people’s needs, help them in trouble, all these are for the sake of love.  It is just like we gladly spent everything for our children.  Because souls are priceless.
