全新的我 – Amanda

刚满月,因家境贫苦,母亲把我送给大姨养育。从小,我就没有安全感。

中五毕业后,决定不再升学,工作赚钱。因工作需要,我开始喝酒、追求物质享受。每天下班后,就和朋友到夜店寻欢作乐,常常不醉不归。虽然借酒消愁愁更愁,但是狂欢喝酒时,至少我觉得我不是孤单的。为了肯定自己的价值,名牌衣物更是我提升自己的包装。

直到我认识了耶稣,我知道自己是耶稣的宝贝,我的价值是不能用钱或物质来衡量的。耶稣改变了我的眼光,使我看到自己真正的价值。我变得轻松自在,我也不再需要到夜店狂欢来驱除我的寂寞,因为耶稣祂用祂的爱填满了我的空虚。因为经历耶稣的爱,我变得喜乐满足,心中不再感到孤独。遇到问题时,祂也让我看到积极的一面。渐渐地,我完全可以以真面目来面对自己 、面对他人。

圣经说:“若有人在基督里,他就是新造的人,旧事已过,都变成新的了。” 你愿意经历耶稣所赐的新生命吗?

When I was one month old, my mother had to give me away to my aunt for adoption as my parents were very poor.  I grew up lacking a sense of security.  After I completed my Form 5, I started working as I did not want to further my studies.

I began to drink and pursue worldly pleasures. I would wear expensive designer clothes to impress others and every day after work, I would join my friends to visit the nightclubs.  We would often get drunk.  Drinking numbed my loneliness although I would feel terrible the next day.

After I came to know Jesus, I discovered that I am precious to God and that my worth cannot be measured in possessions or monetary terms.  Jesus filled my emptiness with His love.  Today, I am joyful, contented and confident. I no longer need to go to nightclubs to drown my loneliness.

Whenever I have any problem, I am able to look at the problem positively.  I am also able to be myself as I no longer feel the need to pretend otherwise.   The Bible says, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, the old has gone, the new has come.”  Indeed, I am a new creation.  Would you like to have this gift of new life
