Today’s Bible verse for you (20 Feb – 30 March 2012)

“至于我,我要仰望耶和华,要等候那救我的神‧我的神必应允我。”弥迦书7:7 风平浪静的日子里我们要赞美神;患难临到时我们更要坚定的倚靠神,因为慈爱的神永远不会离弃等候祂的人、令他们失望。 “But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me.” (Micah 7:7) While life is good, we should praise God. When time gets tough; we should be resilient in the Lord. Because God loves us and is always with us! 28 […]

Today’s Bible verse for you (13 – 16 Feb 2012)

“神人说,不要惧怕,与我们同在的,比与他们同在的更多。”列王记下6:16 这是先知以利沙从神而来的信心;当我们面对困难或威胁时,是否也会坚定相信神的同在与眷顾? 16 “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” This is a faith statement from the prophet Elisha. When we face troubles, we should have the same faith displayed by Elisha.

自夸软弱的保罗 by Sue Tang

经文:「有谁软弱,我不软弱呢?有谁跌倒我不焦急呢?我若必须自夸,就夸那关乎我软弱的事便了。」哥林多后书十一29 -30 基督拯救了自夸软弱的保罗。 哥林多教会的信徒实在令保罗十分生气,教会的内部出现了诸多问题,部分信徒有财有势,自夸智慧,并对保罗诸多质疑,导致保罗不得不对自己的身分作出回应 ─  他是希伯来人、是以色列人、是亚伯拉罕的后裔、是基督的仆人。保罗在回应哥林多信徒的自夸时,也不得不自夸一番,但在他自夸身分与勇敢之余,保罗强调自己的软弱才值得自夸,因为软弱,能反映出基督的拯救。 从保罗在大马色的路上被主光照,又在大马色传道,生命被犹太人所威胁,得神的拯救,被信徒在夜间用筐子把他从城墙上缒下去,直到后来多次旅行步布道,经历过重重险阻,神都保护了保罗、拯救了保罗。若非有神时刻的拯救,那五次各三十九下的鞭打,那三次的棍打,那一次的石头打,那三次的坏船……叫一个血肉之躯的保罗如何承受得起?  神的拯救在人最软弱的时候,显得最真实。懂得自夸软弱,是一种感恩的智慧,因为懂得谦卑,神的恩典和拯救便不会因骄傲而失去,因为神是阻挡骄傲的人,赐恩给谦卑的人。

“我们当深深考察自己的行为,再归向耶和华。我们当诚心向天上的神举手祷告。” 耶利米哀歌 3:40-41 省察认罪,当有了一颗清洁的心以后,我们才能够听到神的声音,明白祂的美意。 Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the LORD. 41 Let us lift up our hearts and our hands to God in heaven, and say: (Lamentations 2:40-41) In order to hear God’s voice and know His will, we must examine ourselves and confess all our […]

Daily Bible Verse (2 – 9 January 2012)

“听智慧人的责备,强如听愚昧人的歌唱。”传道书7:5 忠言逆耳,但是它们的帮助和好处往往无可限量。 It is better to heed the rebuke of a wise person than to listen to the song of fools. (Ecclesiastes 7:5) Words of wisdom that resented our feelings could be very helpful! January 6, 2012 By Jimmy Leave a Comment “谁将智慧放在怀中,谁将聪明赐于心内。”约伯记38:36 我们常常以自己的聪明去应付问题,但是敬畏神的约伯清楚知道神是智慧的源头。 Who has put wisdom in the inward parts? Or who has […]
