改变我的心吧!哦神 Change my heart! O God


书2:2529 Romans 2:25-29

你若是行律法的,割礼固然於你有益;若是犯律法的,你的割礼就算不得割礼。所以那未受割礼的,若遵守律法的条例,他然未受割礼,不算是有割礼 而且那本来未受割礼的, 若能全守律法,不是要判你文和割礼竟犯律法的人 外面作犹太人的,不是真犹太人;外面肉身的割礼,也不是真割礼。 惟有里面作的,才是真犹太人;真割礼也是心里的,在乎灵,不在乎文。人的称不是从人来的,乃是从神来的。
The Jewish ceremony of circumcision has value only if you obey God’s law. But if you don’t obey God’s law, you are no better off than an uncircumcised Gentile. And if the Gentiles obey God’s law, won’t God declare them to be his own people? In fact, uncircumcised Gentiles who keep God’s law will condemn you Jews who are circumcised and possess God’s law but don’t obey it. For you are not a true Jew just because you were born of Jewish parents or because you have gone through the ceremony of circumcision. No, a true Jew is one whose heart is right with God. And true circumcision is not merely obeying the letter of the law; rather, it is a change of heart produced by God’s Spirit. And a person with a changed heart seeks praise from God, not from people.

如果我们谨服耶和话语,与传统仪式才能够有些功用。若我们不遵行神的话,做正直人,在教会里,我们做什么敬拜的仪式也无用。真正的基督徒不是外在的洗礼或在教会参一些何服侍。真正的基督徒是一位在 心里的,在乎灵,不在乎的。 ”在心里有改变的人,他们的人的称不是从人来的,乃是从神来的。让我们做一个良心无愧的人; 为神而活,而不为人的称赞而活。
Ritual practices and ceremonial laws are only of some value if we are obedient to God. If we do not obey God and live righteous lives, it is useless to observe all the worship practices in the church. A true believer is not one who is baptized, or serves actively in some ministry or position in church. A true believer is “one whose heart is right with God.” And it shows in their life and behavior. A changed-heart person seeks to please God first rather than the people around them. Let us live an authentic life; living for God and not people to see.
