THE SCHOOL OF COURAGE 教懂人勇氣的學校 (Acts 4:8-13) Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: "Rulers and elders of the people! (9) If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a man who was lame and are being asked how he was healed, (10) then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. (11) Jesus is"'the stone you builders rejected, which has become the cornerstone.' (12) Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved."

And we are his house,if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory. 希伯來書3:6 CNV但是基督卻是兒子,管理自己的家。如果我們把坦然無懼的心和可誇的盼望持守到底,我們就是他的家了。 2.
