1 太初有道，道与神同在，道就是神。 2 这道太初与神同在。 3 万物是借着他造的；凡被造的，没有一样不是借着他造的。 4 生命在他里头，这生命就是人的光。 5 光照在黑暗里，黑暗却不接受光。 6 有一个人，是从神那里差来的，名叫约翰。 7 这人来，为要作见证，就是为光作见证，叫众人因他可以信。 8 他不是那光，乃是要为光作见证。 9 那光是真光，照亮一切生在世上的人。 10 他在世界，世界也是借着他造的，世界却不认识他。 11 他到自己的地方来，自己的人倒不接待他。 12 凡接待他的，就是信他名的人，他就赐他们权柄做神的儿女。 13 这等人不是从血气生的，不是从情欲生的，也不是从人意生的，乃是从神生的。 14 道成了肉身，住在我们中间，充充满满地有恩典有真理。我们也见过他的荣光，正是父独生子的荣光。
15 约翰为他作见证，喊着说：“这就是我曾说，‘那在我以后来的，反成了在我以前的，因他本来在我以前。’” 16 从他丰满的恩典里，我们都领受了，而且恩上加恩。 17 律法本是借着摩西传的，恩典和真理都是由耶稣基督来的。
誰是基督徒？ 如何定義基督徒？ 基督徒乃是相信耶穌基督的人。
在約翰福音裡，約翰對基督徒的定義則是專注在一點 : 基督徒乃是神所生的。
第四， 基督徒相信耶穌基督就是恩典和真理的本體。 作為一個成為神兒女的基督徒，你當知道你擁有了一切。你知道的世界的奧秘 : 相信耶穌基督成為永生神的兒女。耶穌基督是一切恩典和真理的本體。 有了耶穌就有了一切，一切都從耶穌基督而來的。 耶穌乃是我們真正的滿足。
16 「神愛世人，甚至將他的獨生子賜給他們，叫一切信他的，不致滅亡，反得永 生。17 因為 神差他的兒子降世，不是要定世人的罪*，乃是要叫世人因他得救。 18 信他的人，不被定罪; 不信的人，罪已經定了，因為他不信 神獨生子的名。 (約翰福音3:16-18)
The Word Became Flesh
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. 6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. 9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. 14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 (John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, “This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’”) 16 Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
Who is a Christian? How to define a Christian? A Christian is a person who believes in Jesus Christ.
What is faith in Jesus?
In Gospel of John, John's definition of Christians focuses on one point: Christians are born of God.
There are several very important characteristics of Christians born of God, they are:
First, Christians understand who God is by knowing Christ.
Who is God? Where do good and evil come from? What is correct Christology?
Christ is God, Christ is the God of Creation.
Christ is God, and Christ is the God who controls everything.
Christ is God, and the authority of Christ is above all.
Christ is God, and Christ is the God with us, Emmanuel.
Second, Christians know that John the Baptist is a witness of Jesus Christ.
God sent his only beloved son into the world to save the world. In order to carry out his plan,
God also sent a special person to testify for his son. This person is John the Baptist, and John's mission in this world is to bear witness to Jesus Christ.
Third, Christians believe in the name of Jesus Christ to become children of God.
A Christian is a person who God predestined to choose the son of a son before he founded the world. Christians who are born again by God, they receive God, and they believe in the name of Jesus Christ. Redemption through the blood of the beloved Son, Jesus Christ, and forgiveness of sins. They received God's grace, and God gave them authority to become God's children.
Fourth, Christians believe that Jesus Christ is the essence of grace and truth.
As a Christian who has become a child of God, you know that you have everything. The mystery of the world you know: Believe in Jesus Christ to be a child of the living God. Jesus Christ is the body of all grace and truth. With Jesus, you have everything, and everything comes from Jesus Christ. Jesus is our true satisfaction.
If the Jesus you know is inconsistent with what he revealed, then please come to know him
clearly before his revealed words, and ask him to choose you according to his abundance of
mercy and the will of the beginning of the world. You also believe in his name because of the
completeness of his revelation: he is a God of creation, a God in charge of everything, a God of authority, and a God who is present. All he did is to make you understand God's love and he wants to save you! Hurry up to accept his salvation and trust him!
16 "God loves the world, and even gave his only-begotten Son to them, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but have eternal life. 17 Because God sent his Son to the world not to condemn the world* but to make The world is saved because of him. 18 Those who believe in him are not condemned; those who do not believe are already condemned because he does not believe in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (John 3:16-18)
