神爱世人,甚至将他的独生子赐给他们,叫一切信他的,
不至灭亡,反得永生。(约3:16)

“但记这些事要叫你们信耶稣是基督,是神的儿子,并且叫你们信了他,就可以因他的名得生命。”约翰福音 20:31

…These are written that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.  John 20:31

剑桥著名壁球手、传教士司徒德当年读书时候写了一句话:人生匆匆,时光不再;为主作工,基督永存。如果我们的生命来见证永生,这样的一生是荣耀的一生。如果我们做不到这一点,就算其他方面再成功也是枉然。每个人都要到神面前交差,逃不了。穆迪说:让神掌管你的人生,他会比你自己做的更多。他又说:圣洁的生活会产生非凡的影响力。灯塔不会吹喇叭,只会发光。

我们基督徒的生命是不朽的。神造人与其它动物不同。神按照自己的形象造人,有灵魂。我们肉身死去,从地上消失,但我们灵魂还会活着。一百年之后,你会比现在更有生命。圣经说,生命不止于墓地。相信神的儿子耶稣基督的有永活的生命。不相信、拒绝或忽视耶稣基督的,只好进入地狱,与神隔绝。雨果说,我能感受到我的未来。大流士说,我不能想象灵魂只有在肉体活着的时候才活着。我们在基督里的盼望让我们远离死亡,在永生的云彩中架起彩虹。我们的锚是耶稣基督,他胜过死亡,通过福音带来生命和不朽之光。

Only one life, ‘twill soon be past;

Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Life is a glorious opportunity if it is used to condition us for eternity. If we fail in this, though we succeed in everything else, our life will have been a failure. There is no escape for the man who squanders his opportunity to prepare to meet God.D.L. Moody said, “Let God have your life; He can do more with it than you can!” D.L. Moody also said, “A holy life will produce the deepest impression. Lighthouses blow no horns; they only shine.”

Our lives are also immortal. God made man different from the other creatures. He made him in His own image, a living soul. When this body dies and our earthly existence is terminated, the soul or spirit lives on forever. One hundred years from this day you will be more alive than you are at this moment. The Bible teaches that life does not end at the cemetery. There is a future life with God for those who put their trust in His Son, Jesus Christ. There is also a future hell of separation from God toward which all are going who have refused rejected, or neglected to
