Do you know God?
Do you know God as what?
What does he do for you?Why is he interested in us?
Why would he ever have the time and day to listen to my pray.
与神相比 我是谁 他是宇宙的创造者
Who am I compared to God, the creator of the universe,
the alpha and omega.
It’s a big thought.
For me, God is everything.
For me, there were many times of my life,
when I did not have peace in my life,
and seeking the answers to many questions.
And of course, being born without limbs,
I ask God: “Why did this happen?”
You know, we always talk to God more at a bad day.
We ask God things, we thank God for things.
But…do you get to know him?
Do you talk to him apart from just asking him for things?
Because if I had a friend then I just called him up when I needed him.
It’s not really friendship.
Do you know that he is excited to hear from you?
Do you know that you were on his mind
before the earth began,
and then he formed you in your mind as groom.
That was such an amazing peace that I had in fifteen years old…
to know that I finally have someone,
who’s gonna be with me though it all,
who knows all my circumstances,
who’s bigger than my circumstances.
It’s not like my parents,
my parents loved me, my parents were there for me.
They would not gonna leave me at all.
But they couldn’t change anything.
And they couldn’t heal my heart.
But God did.
How cool is that, that he loves me so much,
that he sent his son Jesus Chris down the cross for my sins.
Who am I that God would ever wanna even talk to me.
Let alone let his son die for me.
Jesus Christ, he died for my sins.
But John III sixteens says God came and save the world,
he rescued us by sending his son Jesus Christ.
In verse seventeens, it says Jesus did not come into the world
to condemn the world, but to save us.
当这个世界思考 噢 哇
And when the world thinks, Oh, wow.
Jesus is now the only way that choose a life.
Yes, that’s because he’s the only one who died for our sins.
He’s the only one who claimed that he was God in the flesh.
He was the only holy one.
He was the only one who faced the devil.
Face to face and won.
He was the only one who could raise himself from the dead.
And when I believe in God,
and I receive him as my LORD,
and get to know him as my friend.
That same spirit of God,
that raises Jesus Christ from the dead,
The Holy Spirit would raise me up from the dead.
How cool is that.
I’m not gonna die.
I may take my last breath here on earth.
But I have confidence in him, not only for salvation,
but for comfort, for strength.
And I can actually talk to him.
I might be good to you.
But compare to God,
who’s the next voyager? No one.
I might be good compared to some other people.
But how good is good and how bad is bad?
That’s why we bring out the Bible and say:
Okay. Let’s not compare ourselves to each other.
Let’s compare ourselves to God.
If we do that, we get a little bit of a problem.
If you think that having no arms and no legs is a problem,
not knowing god is bigger problem.
And I want you to know that,
it’s not too late.
明天是未知的 但是 你有今天
Yet tomorrow is not promised.But… you have today.
并说：“嘿 你知道吗 神”
To say: “Hey, you know what, god,
if you’re up there and you have a plan for me,
I wanna know what that plan is.”
The beautiful thing about knowing God is knowing what he says.
Knowing what he says about how much he loves me,
about how he will never leave me,
about how many times I failed, he still loves me,
about how many construction every day.
And Nick fails God,
but God’s graces are efficient,
as long as a hunger and strive to know him more,
And it’s not this “to do” thing.
It’s a love thing.
I love God.
And God loves me.
And as we spend more time with each other,
I fall in love with him more and more every day.
The most exciting thing that I can ever do today is
to know something more about God’s love for me,
and my family.
You can give your faith to believe this.
If you ask him for faith, he will actually give you faith.
Faith is not a gift that’s earned.
Faith is a gift that’s given.
He loves you so much.
And more than anything today,
I want you to know God.
