Today’s Sermon: The U-Turn to Life
Scripture Reading: Ezekiel 18:21-32 (ESV)

21 “But if a wicked person turns away from all his sins that he has committed and keeps all my statutes and does what is just and right, he shall surely live; he shall not die.
22 None of the transgressions that he has committed shall be remembered against him; for the righteousness that he has done he shall live.
23 Have I any pleasure in the death of the wicked, declares the Lord GOD, and not rather that he should turn from his way and live?
24 But when a righteous person turns away from his righteousness and does injustice and does the same abominations that the wicked person does, shall he live? None of the righteous deeds that he has done shall be remembered; for the treachery of which he is guilty and the sin he has committed, for them he shall die.
25 “Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not just.’ Hear now, O house of Israel: Is my way not just? Is it not your ways that are not just?
26 When a righteous person turns away from his righteousness and does injustice, he shall die for it; for the injustice that he has done he shall die.
27 Again, when a wicked person turns away from the wickedness he has committed and does what is just and right, he shall save his life.
28 Because he considered and turned away from all the transgressions that he had committed, he shall surely live; he shall not die.
29 Yet the house of Israel says, ‘The way of the Lord is not just.’ O house of Israel, are my ways not just? Is it not your ways that are not just?
30 “Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, declares the Lord GOD. Repent and turn from all your transgressions, lest iniquity be your ruin.
31 Cast away from you all the transgressions that you have committed, and make yourselves a new heart and a new spirit! Why will you die, O house of Israel?
32 For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Lord GOD; so turn, and live.”

創世記 第 1 章



1 : 1   起初,上帝創造天地。
1 : 2   地是空虛混沌,深淵上面一片黑暗;上帝的靈 運行在水面上。
1 : 3   上帝說:「要有光」,就有了光。
1 : 4   上帝看光是好的,於是上帝就把光和暗分開。
1 : 5   上帝稱光為「晝」,稱暗為「夜」。有晚上,有早晨,這是第一日。
1 : 6   上帝說:「眾水之間要有穹蒼,把水和水分開。」
1 : 7   上帝就造了穹蒼,把穹蒼以下的水和穹蒼以上的水分開。事就這樣成了。
1 : 8   上帝稱穹蒼為「天」。有晚上,有早晨,這是第二日。
1 : 9   上帝說:「天下面的水要聚集在一處,使乾地露出來。」事就這樣成了。
1 : 10   上帝稱乾地為「地」,稱聚集在一起的水為「海」。上帝看為好的。
1 : 11   上帝說:「地要長出植物,就是含種子的五穀菜蔬,和會結果子、果子裏有種子的樹,在地上各從其類。」事就這樣成了。
1 : 12   於是地長出了植物:含種子的五穀菜蔬,各從其類;會結果子、果子裏有種子的樹,各從其類。上帝看為好的。
1 : 13   有晚上,有早晨,這是第三日。
1 : 14   上帝說:「天上要有光體來分晝夜,讓它們作記號,定季節、日子、年份,
1 : 15   它們要在天空發光,照在地上。」事就這樣成了。
1 : 16   於是上帝造了兩個大光體,大的管晝,小的管夜,又造了星辰。
1 : 17   上帝把這些光體擺列在天空,照在地上,
1 : 18   管理晝夜,分別光暗。上帝看為好的。
1 : 19   有晚上,有早晨,這是第四日。
1 : 20   上帝說:「水要滋生眾多有生命之物;要有鳥飛在地面以上,天空之中。」
1 : 21   上帝就創造了大魚和在水裏滋生的各樣活動的生物,各從其類,以及各樣有翅膀的鳥,各從其類。上帝看為好的。
1 : 22   上帝就賜福給這一切,說:「要繁殖增多,充滿在海的水裏;飛鳥也要在地上增多。」
1 : 23   有晚上,有早晨,這是第五日。
1 : 24   上帝說:「地要生出有生命之物,各從其類,就是牲畜、爬行動物、地上的走獸,各從其類。」事就這樣成了。
1 : 25   於是上帝造了地上的走獸,各從其類;牲畜,各從其類;和地上一切的爬行動物,各從其類。上帝看為好的。
1 : 26   上帝說:「我們要照着我們的形像,按着我們的樣式造人,使他們管理海裏的魚、天空的鳥、地上的牲畜和全地,以及地上爬的一切爬行動物。」
1 : 27   上帝就照着他的形像創造人,照着上帝的形像創造他們;他創造了他們,有男有女。
1 : 28   上帝賜福給他們,上帝對他們說:「要生養眾多,遍滿這地,治理它;要管理海裏的魚、天空的鳥和地上各樣活動的生物。」
1 : 29   上帝說:「看哪,我把全地一切含種子的五穀菜蔬和一切會結果子、果子裏有種子的樹,都賜給你們;這些都可作食物。
1 : 30   至於地上一切的走獸、天空一切的飛鳥,並一切在地上爬行的,有生命的動物,我把綠色植物賜給牠們作食物。」事就這樣成了。
1 : 31   上帝看一切所造的,看哪,都非常好。有晚上,有早晨,這是第六日。
