「但我断不以别的夸口,只夸我们主耶稣基督的十字架。」(加六14)

那么,保罗是什么意思呢?他宣称,除了耶稣基督被钉在十字架上,赦免了他的罪并拯救了他的灵魂之外,他别无信靠,这就是他的意思。要是有人愿意到别处去寻找拯救,就随他们去吧;要是有人真这么定意去信靠别的东西以求得赦免和平安,也就随他们去吧。但是就保罗自己而言,这位使徒定意不立足于任何别的东西之上,他不依靠于任何别的东西,他的盼望也不本于任何别的事物,他的自信也不建立在任何其他事物之上,他断不以别的夸口,只夸我们的主耶稣基督的十字架。

读者啊,请让我来跟你谈谈这个题目。相信我,这是一个有着最深远的重要性的题目,绝非什么简单的争议的问题;绝非什么人们认为尽可以言人人殊,同时却觉得对他们进不进天堂并无大碍的观点。“你怎么看基督的十字架?”每个人都必须对这个问题有正确的答案,否则他就永远失丧。对这个问题的答案将决定:天堂或地狱,幸福或悲苦,生命或死亡,末日的祝福或咒诅,也就是说,将决定一切。让我来告诉你:

  1. 使徒保罗断不以什么夸口
  2. 使徒保罗以什么夸口
  3. 为什么所有的基督徒都应像使徒保罗那样思考和感受到十字架

 


 

I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me, and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. – Galatians 2:20

I want to tell you what perhaps the greatest Christian who ever lived (the Apostle Paul) thought of the cross of Christ. Believe me, the cross is of deepest importance. This is no mere question of controversy; this is not one of those points on which men may agree to differ and feel that differences will not shut them out of heaven. A man must be right on this subject, or he is lost forever. Heaven or hell, happiness or misery, life or death, blessing or cursing in the last day – all hinges on the answer to this question: “What do you think about the cross of Christ?”

Let me show you:

  1. What the apostle Paul did not glory in.
  2. What Paul did glory in.
  3. Why all Christians should think and feel about the cross like Paul.

 

About the Author
John Charles Ryle (1816-1900) graduated from Eton and Oxford and then pursued a career in politics, but due to lack of funds, he entered the clergy of the Church of England. He was a contemporary of Spurgeon, Moody, Mueller, and Taylor and read the great theologians like Wesley, Bunyan, Knox, Calvin, and Luther. These all influenced Ryle’s understanding and theology. Ryle began his writing career with a tract following the Great Yarmouth suspension bridge tragedy, where more than a hundred people drowned. He gained a reputation for straightforward preaching and evangelism. He travelled, preached, and wrote more than 300 pamphlets, tracts, and books, including Expository Thoughts on the Gospels, Principles for Churchmen, and Christian Leaders of the Eighteenth Century. Ryle used the royalties from his writing to pay his father’s debts, but he also felt indebted to that ruin for changing the direction of his life. He was recommended by Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli to be Bishop of Liverpool where he ended his career in 1900.
