*What’s stopping you?*

Matthew 4:18-22 NLT
[18] One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers-Simon, also called Peter, and Andrew-throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living. [19] Jesus called out to them, "Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!" [20] And they left their nets at once and followed him. [21] A little farther up the shore he saw two other brothers, James and John, sitting in a boat with their father, Zebedee, repairing their nets. And he called them to come, too. [22] They immediately followed him, leaving the boat and their father behind.

‭‭馬太福音‬ ‭4:18-22‬ ‭CNV
「耶穌在加利利海邊行走的時候,看見兄弟二人,就是名叫彼得的西門和他的弟弟安得烈,正在把網撒到海裡去;他們是漁夫。 耶穌就對他們說:“來跟從我,我要使你們作得人的漁夫。” 他們立刻撇下網,跟從了他。 耶穌又往前走,看見另一對兄弟,就是西庇太的兒子雅各和他的兄弟約翰,正和父親西庇太在船上整理魚網,他就呼召他們。 他們立刻離了船,別了父親,跟從了耶穌。」

Become convinced that Jesus has qualified you

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 NLT
[9] Don't you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don't fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, [10] or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people-none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God. [11] Some of you were once like that. But you were cleansed; you were made holy; you were made right with God by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

哥林多前書 6:9-11 CNV
「你們不知道不義的人不能承受 神的國嗎?不要自欺,無論是行淫亂的、拜偶像的、姦淫的、作孌童的、親男色的、 偷竊的、貪心的、醉酒的、辱罵人的或勒索的,都不能承受 神的國。 你們有些人從前也是這樣的,但現在藉著我們主耶穌基督的名,靠著我們 神的靈,都已經洗淨了,聖潔了,稱義了。」

Receive the grace of Gods calling

2 Timothy 1:9 NLT
[9] For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time-to show us his grace through Christ Jesus.
