付了我们全部的罪价。因为他从死里复活,使我们知道耶稣是成了肉身
的上帝。
Everyone who trusts in Him alone has
eternal life.凡相信耶稣的人就有永生
• The amazing thing about eternal life is that it is a free gift given
to us by God through faith alone and not by any of our good
deeds (Ephesians 2:8,9).令人惊奇的是永恒的生命在于通过对

you die but as soon as you believe (John 10:10).永生的实现
不是在你死了之后才启动,而是当你相信的一刻就启动了
(约翰福音10:10)。

every single day through prayer, worship and living in the
strength that God provides through his Holy Spirit (Ephesians
5:18).通过每一天的祷告,敬拜,上帝赐给的圣灵和力量,

或欲望在你心里,或者崇拜假宗教和拜假偶像?
