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).

“圣灵与我们的心同证我们是神的儿女;”罗马书 8:16

The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God. Romans 8:16

我们有三大敌人:罪、撒旦和死亡。因为耶稣从死里复活,我们晓得罪、死亡和撒旦已经被击败。因为主的复活,我们知道死后还有生命,我们属于耶稣,不惧怕死亡和地狱。耶稣说,“复活在我,生命也在我。信我的人虽然死了,也必复活; 凡活着信我的人必永远不死。你信这话吗?”(约11:25-26 )他又说,“在我父的家里有许多住处;若是没有,我就早已告诉你们了。我去原是为你们预备地方去。 我若去为你们预备了地方,就必再来接你们到我那里去,我在哪里,叫你们也在那里。”(约14:2-3) 

我们知道这些话都是真的。因为耶稣真的在十字架上死了,又从死里复活。因着耶稣的复活,我们有了荣耀的盼望。如经上所记: 神为爱他的人所预备的是眼睛未曾看见, 耳朵未曾听见, 人心也未曾想到的。(林前2:9) 我们对未来的盼望都是因为一个事实,就是神借着耶稣成全了他的救赎。不管遇到什么景况,我们都不要绝望,因为主是复活的。我们若是与基督同死,就信必与他同活。因为罪的工价乃是死;惟有神的恩赐,在我们的主基督耶稣里,乃是永生。(罗6:8, 23) 

We have three great enemies: sin, Satan, and death. Because Christ rose from the dead, we know that sin and death and Satan have been decisively defeated. And because Christ rose from the dead, we know there is life after death, and that if we belong to Him we need not fear death or hell. Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die” (John 11:25-26, NIV). He also promised, “In my Father’s house are many rooms: if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am” (John 14:2-3, NIV).

We know these words are true, because Jesus died on the cross and rose again from the dead. What a glorious hope we have because of Jesus’ resurrection!No eye has seen,No ear has heard,No Mind has conceivedWhat God has prepared for thoseWho love him.1 Corinthians 2:9, NIVOur confidence in the future is based firmly on the fact of what God has done for us in Christ. No matter what our situation may be, we need never despair because Christ is alive. “Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him… For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:8, 23, NIV)
