Why is that? 那为什么会是这样子呢 Because of the next Scripture 因为下面这段圣经节 From the Book of Romans, chapter three 在罗马书第3章 Let's read it together. Please 我们一起读一下 来 When people sin 当人犯罪之后 We fall short of the glory of God 我们就亏缺了神的荣耀 Our self image declines 我们的自我形象就坠落了 Then what is the church's main responsibility? 那么教会最主要的工作是什么 The third heading that I want to give everyone is 第三个标题我要给大家的就是 The main responsibility of the church is to help the world 教会最主要的工作是要帮助世人 To restore the image God created for people in Christ 在基督里面重新拾回 To restore the image God created for people in Christ 上帝创造人的形象 To resolve this problem 要解决这个问题 The answer is in Christ 答案是在在基督里面 When God first created people 一开始上帝创造人类的时候 He created people in His image 是按照祂的形象来创造人类 Let's read from the Book of Genesis, chapter one, verses 26 to 28 我们来读创世记第1章26到28节好吗 来

It is not only males who are created in God's image 所以不是只有男生有神的形象 Females are also created completely in God's image 女生也是一样完全有神的形象 Please turn to your neighbor and say 事实上请你跟旁边说 "You have God's image on you" 你身上有神的形象 Since God first created people 神一开始创造人类的时候 He gave us His most glorious image 把祂自己最荣耀的神的形象 He gave us His most glorious image 给了我们 So it stands to reason that each of us 所以照理说我们每一个人 Should have a perfect self image 应该有一个最健全的自我形象 A glorious image, a self image 就是一个荣耀的形象 自我的形象 But why do we have issues and difficulties concerning our self image? 但是为什么 But why do we have issues and difficulties concerning our self image? 我们会有自我形象的问题跟困难呢 Why do we feel we are so terrible? 我们会觉得自己很不好自己很糟糕 The Bible says it is because for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God 圣经上说因为世人都犯了罪 The Bible says it is because for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God 亏缺了神的荣耀 Once we have sinned 所以当我们犯了罪之后 We feel that we are terrible 我们就会觉得自己很糟糕 We don't like ourselves 很不会喜欢自己 Adam and Eve were created in God's image 亚当跟夏娃是按照神的形象 So are all people 所造的男女 But when they sinned 但是当他们犯了罪的时候 When God came again to the Garden of Eden to look for them 当神再次来到伊甸园找他们的时候 They hid themselves 他们把自己躲藏起来 They didn't dare to let God see them. Why? 他们不敢见神 为什么 Because they felt that they had done something wrong 因为他觉得我做了不好的事情 God would no longer like them 神一定不会喜欢我
09:26
God would not forgive them 神一定不会原谅我 So they hid themselves 所以他就把自己躲藏起来 In actuality, people's self image suffers once they sin 事实上人的自我形象 In actuality, people's self image suffers once they sin 就从人犯罪之后就开始堕落了 People from God's image 人就从神的形象里面 They lack God's image 亏缺了神的形象 People feel that they are not good enough.

Please 我们来读这段话 来 We might often feel 我们常常觉得说 "I'm a sinner" 我是一个罪人 "If I go back to the Heavenly Father's house" 如果我回天父的家 "I will be scolded by Him" 一定会被天父责难 "I will be judged by Him" 一定会被祂审判 "I will be rejected by Him" 一定会被祂拒绝 But Jesus is saying 但是耶稣来表达 The Heavenly Father is not like that 天父不是这样的天父
