Words in the box: The wicked way: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.” (Prov. 16:25) Commit sin: “There is not a righteous man on earth who does what is right and never sins.” (Ecc 7:20) “We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way.” (Isa 53:6) Serve sin: When one first steps on the road of sin, it seems interesting and very happy, but it can only be “enjoyed for a short time.” (Heb 11:25) The pleasures of sin will soon become chains. Sinners cannot be set free by one’s own power. Just like Jesus said: “everyone who sins is a slave to sin.” (Jn 8:34) Condemned for sin: Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment. (Heb 9:27) “For the wages of sin is death.” (Ro 6:23) Gate of Salvation: “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved”. (Ac 4:12) Forgiveness of sin: Fortunately, although God hates sin, he does not want to abandon us. “For 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.” (Jn 3:16) The Lord “who had no sin” died for me. (2 Co 5:21) On the cross, “He himself bore our sins in his body.” (1 Pe 2:24) “through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you.” (Ac 13:38) Overcome sins: Since the Lord “died for all,” his death counts as my death. (2 Co 5:14) Therefore, I “died to sin.” (Ro 6:1,2) “sin shall not be (my) master” (Ro 6:14) After Jesus died, he was raised to life and went up to heaven. The spirit of the resurrected Jesus lives in me and gives me the power to overcome sins and also grants me the heavenly life on earth. (Eph 2:6) This is the blessing of salvation now. When we see the glorious face of the Lord in heaven in the future, it will be a even bigger blessing, because “we will be like him.” (1 Jn 3: 2)

十字架上:主替我死 我与主同死 得救门

门内:胜罪 赦罪


图左下:犯罪 事罪 定罪

图下文字: 罪恶的路 ”有一条路,人以为正,至终成为死亡之路。“ 箴一六, 25 犯罪 “时常行善而不犯罪的义人,世上实在没有。” 传七, 20 “我们都如羊走迷,各人偏行己路,” 赛五三, 6 事罪 初走犯罪的路时,似乎实在有味,有好些快乐,然而只能“暂时享受。” 来十一, 25 一切罪恶的快乐,不久都要变成捆绑。犯了罪的人,想要自己挣脱,绝不可能。正如主耶稣所说: “所有犯罪的都是罪的奴仆。” 约八, 34 定罪 “按着定命,人人都有一死,死后且有审判。” 来九, 27 “罪的工价乃是死。” 罗六, 23 得救的门 “除衪(耶稣)以外,别无拯救;因为在天下人间,没有赐下别的名,我们可以靠着得救。” 徒四12 赦罪 幸亏神虽然恨罪,可是不甘丢弃世人。“神爱世人,甚至将衪的独生子赐给他们,叫一切信衪的不至灭亡,反得永生。” 约三, 16 “无罪的”主,替我死了。林后五, 21 衪在十字架上,“亲身担当了我们的罪。”(彼前二, 24) “赦罪的道,是由这人传给你们的,” 徒十三, 38 胜罪 主既替“众人死了,” 衪的死就算是我的死。 林后五, 14 所以我得以成为“在罪上死了的人。” 罗六, 1, 2 “罪必不能作(我的)主。” 罗六, 14 主耶稣死后,复活了又升天。复活耶稣的灵住在我里面赐我有胜罪的能力,又叫我在世上过天堂的日子。 弗二, 6 这就是现在得救的福气。将来在天见主荣面的时候,福气更大,因为“主若显现,我们必要像衪。约一三, 2
