神所喜悅的人 Person Pleasing to God

神藉著歷史所發生的事成為我們的鑑戒, 叫我們不要重覆錯誤, 猶太人的經歷是預表基督徒的經歷. 本週, 張國強牧師以保羅的教導強調我們怎樣能成為一個神所喜悅的人.

The Old Testament’s account of Israel clearly shows the dangers of desiring evil. This week, Rev. Jeremiah Cheung draws on examples from Israel’s past to show the consequences of a sinful life. Let us strive to please God instead.
