(Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV)

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

(伝道の書 3:11 JCB)



(Luke 23:39-43 NIV)

One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!” (40) But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? (41) We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.” (42) Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” (43) Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

(ルカ 23:39-43 JCB)

イエスの横で十字架につけられていた犯罪人の一人が、「あんたはメシヤなんだってなあ。だったら、自分とおれたちを救ってもよさそうなもんだ。どうなんだ」とののしりました。 (40-41)しかし、もう一人の犯罪人は、それをたしなめました。「この期に及んで、まだ神を恐れないのか! おれたちは悪事を働いたんだから、報いを受けるのはあたりまえだ。だが、このお方は悪いことは何もしなかったのだ。」(42)そして、イエスにこう頼みました。「イエス様。御国に入る時、どうぞ私を思い出してください。」(43)イエスはお答えになりました。「あなたは今日、わたしといっしょにパラダイス(天国)に入ります。


Heaven Is Real 天国は本当にある


(Revelation 21:4 NIV)

‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.

(黙示録 21:4 ALIVE訳)



(Matthew 16:27 NIV)

For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.

(マタイ 16:27 ALIVE訳)



So How Do I Live Today? 今どのように生きればいいの?


1. What Did You Do For Jesus? あなたはイエスのために何をした?


(Matthew 7:21-23 NIV)

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven,but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. (22) Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ (23) Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

(マタイ 7:21-23 ALIVE訳)

俺を“王”と呼ぶのなら誰でも、神の王国キングダムに入れるかといったら、そうではない。天の父の心を受け継ぐものだけだ。(22)終わりの日、たくさんの人が俺を、我が王と呼ぶ。 『あなたの名によって、神のことばを語り、悪魔を追っ払い、キセキを起こした』と。(23) そんな彼らに俺はこう答える。 『帰れ!過ちを犯し続けた人間なんて俺は知らん!』」


2. What Did You Do With What You Had? 与えられたものをどのように使った?


(2 Corinthians 5:10 NIV)

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.

(2 コリント 5:10 ALIVE訳)



(2 Corinthians 9:11 NIV)

You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.

(2 コリント 9:11 ALIVE訳)



3. There Is More To This Life Than This Life この世の人生以上の人生がある


(2 Corinthians 4:18 NIV)

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

(2 コリント 4:18 ALIVE訳)



(Romans 6:23 NIV)

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

(ローマ 6:23 ALIVE訳)
