God LOVES you and offers a wonderful PLAN for your life.
Man is SINFUL and SEPARATED from God. Therefore, he cannot know and experience God's love and plan for his life.
Jesus Christ is God's ONLY provision for man's sin. Through Him you can know and experience God's love and plan for your life.
We must individually RECEIVE Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; then we can know and experience God's love and plan for our lives.
〈神的愛 God's Love〉
"God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life"
〈神的計劃 God's Plan〉
Christ speaking："I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly"
< that it might be full and meaningful >
Why is it that most people are not experiencing the abundant life?
〈人因有罪 Man Is Sinful〉
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
Man was created to have fellowship with God; but, because of his stubborn self-will, he chose to go his own independent way, and fellowship with God was broken. This self-will, characterized by an attitude of active rebellion or passive indifference, is an evidence of what the Bible calls sin.
〈與神隔絕 Man Is Separated〉
"The wages of sin is death"
< spiritual separation from God >
聖潔的神 HOLY GOD
有罪的人 SINFUL MAN
This diagram illustrates that God is holy and man is sinful. A great gulf separates the two. The arrows illustrate that man is continually trying to reach God and the abundant life through his own efforts, such as a good life, philosophy, or religion - but he inevitably fails.
〈耶穌為我們死 Jesus Died in Our Place〉
聖潔的神 HOLY GOD
有罪的人 SINFUL MAN
God has bridged the gulf which separates us from Him by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross in our place to pay the penalty for our sins.
〈我們必須接受基督 We Must Receive Christ〉
"As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name"
〈我們藉著信心接受基督 We Receive Christ Through Faith〉
"By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast"
〈我們必須親自邀請基督進入心中 We Receive Christ by Personal Invitation〉
Christ speaking,"Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him"
Receiving Christ involves turning to God from self (repentance) and trusting Christ to come into our lives to forgive our sins and to make us what He wants us to be. Just to agree intellectually that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He died on the cross for our sins is not enough. Nor is it enough to have an emotional experience. We receive Jesus Christ by faith, as an act of the will.
"God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us"
〈耶穌從死裡復活 Jesus Rose From the Dead〉
"Christ died for our sins...He was buried...He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures...He appeared to Peter, then to the twelve.
After that He appeared to more than five hundred..."
～1 Corinthians 15:3~6
〈耶穌是唯一的道路 Jesus Is the Only Way to God〉
"Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me'"
