2 John

今天听了一个Sermon, Joseph Prince, about Peter. At the very beginning, Peter was drawing by Jesus because of His holiness. But when Jesus was captured, Peter denied Him three times. Peter ran away to weep after he denied himself as a follower of Jesus. Because when he denied God, God knew and turned back to look at him. That look must be full of love that made Peter feel shamed. Later when Jesus raised again, He encountered Peter before He met the twelve, as said in the Bible. One day, Peter went fishing with a lot of people, but they caught nothing. Jesus came and walked on the water, far away, He shouted to them to fish on the right side of the boat. They did and got a lot of fish. Then someone recognized that the wise man who spoke to them was Jesus. Peter heard that and immediately jumped into the water, ran to Jesus.

Josepha Prince asked the audiences this question: what do you think that is driven Peter run to the Lord, God’s holiness or God’s love? If it is holiness, should Peter be running to the other direction for what he has done to Jesus? It is God’s love, unconditional love.

God forgives if we repent. 


 2 John 1: And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.

撒什么种子结什么果。Sow and reap,这个叫Consequence。我之前问 Mr. W,为什么我悔改了,这些事情还要临到我头上我在这?为什么明明我得自由得重生,这些最坏的事情,这些人与人奇怪的关系还是发生了?为什么神没有怜悯我让我逃开这一切?Mr. W当时也没有一个很好地答案。但是,现在神给了我一个很好的答案。神知道,我就算经历这些,也会对他充满信心,所以他很放心,他知道我心中充满喜悦,来自他的喜悦。

2 John 1: 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take them into your house or welcome them. 11 Anyone who welcomes them shares in their wicked work. 

好后悔曾经的自己开门了。现在我谨记上帝的教导。 Soulmate 的第一条就是,他爱上帝,也明白上帝的爱。
