Hebrews 13:5b-6

“The Lord is my helper;
I will not fear.
What can man do to me?”

5b ... 因為主曾說:「我總不撇下你,也不丟棄你。」 6 所以我們可以放膽說:「主是幫助我的,我必不懼怕,人能把我怎麼樣呢?」

Galatians 3:1-3*
1 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified? 2 This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 3 Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?

1無知的加拉太人哪!耶穌基督釘十字架,已經活畫在你們眼前,誰又迷惑了你們呢? 2 我只要問你們這一件:你們受了聖靈,是因行律法呢,是因聽信福音呢? 3 你們既靠聖靈入門,如今還靠肉身成全嗎?你們是這樣的無知嗎?

21 如果你們聽過他的道,領了他的教,學了他的真理, 22 就要脫去你們從前行為上的舊人,這舊人是因私慾的迷惑漸漸變壞的; 23 又要將你們的心志改換一新, 24 並且穿上新人,這新人是照著神的形象造的,有真理的仁義和聖潔。

Romans 2:28-29
28 For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; 29 but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.

28 因為外面做猶太人的,不是真猶太人;外面肉身的割禮,也不是真割禮。 29 唯有裡面做的,才是真猶太人;真割禮也是心裡的,在乎靈,不在乎儀文。這人的稱讚不是從人來的,乃是從神來的。

馬太福音 24:12-14
12 只因不法的事增多,許多人的愛心才漸漸冷淡了。 13 唯有忍耐到底的,必然得救。 14 這天國的福音要傳遍天下,對萬民作見證,然後末期才來到。

Because the Lord has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn,
3 To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”

1 「主耶和華的靈在我身上,因為耶和華用膏膏我,叫我傳好信息給謙卑的人,差遣我醫好傷心的人,報告被擄的得釋放、被囚的出監牢, 2 報告耶和華的恩年和我們神報仇的日子,安慰一切悲哀的人, 3 賜華冠於錫安悲哀的人代替灰塵,喜樂油代替悲哀,讚美衣代替憂傷之靈,使他們稱為公義樹,是耶和華所栽的,叫他得榮耀。」

47 Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead.50 This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. 51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”

47 我實實在在地告訴你們:信的人有永生。 48 我就是生命的糧。 49 你們的祖宗在曠野吃過嗎哪,還是死了; 50 這是從天上降下來的糧,叫人吃了就不死。 51 我是從天上降下來生命的糧,人若吃這糧,就必永遠活著。我所要賜的糧就是我的肉,為世人之生命所賜的。

22 猶太人是要神蹟,希臘人是求智慧, 23 我們卻是傳釘十字架的基督——在猶太人為絆腳石,在外邦人為愚拙, 24 但在那蒙召的,無論是猶太人、希臘人,基督總為神的能力、神的智慧。

Song of Solomon 8:6-7
6 Set me as a seal upon your heart,
As a seal upon your arm;
For love is as strong as death,
Jealousy as cruel as the grave;
Its flames are flames of fire,
A most vehement flame.
7 Many waters cannot quench love,
Nor can the floods drown it.
If a man would give for love
All the wealth of his house,
It would be utterly despised.

6 求你將我放在你心上如印記,戴在你臂上如戳記。因為愛情如死之堅強,嫉恨如陰間之殘忍;所發的電光是火焰的電光,是耶和華的烈焰。 7 愛情,眾水不能熄滅,大水也不能淹沒。若有人拿家中所有的財寶要換愛情,就全被藐視。

5 你們年幼的,也要順服年長的。就是你們眾人也都要以謙卑束腰,彼此順服,因為「神阻擋驕傲的人,賜恩給謙卑的人」。 6 所以,你們要自卑,服在神大能的手下,到了時候祂必叫你們升高。

1 John 2:15-17
15 Do not love the world or the things in the world.

15 不要愛世界和世界上的事。人若愛世界,愛父的心就不在他裡面了。 16 因為凡世界上的事,就像肉體的情慾、眼目的情慾並今生的驕傲,都不是從父來的,乃是從世界來的。 17 這世界和其上的情慾都要過去,唯獨遵行神旨意的,是永遠常存。

19 我們愛,因為神先愛我們。 20 人若說「我愛神」,卻恨他的弟兄,就是說謊話的;不愛他所看見的弟兄,就不能愛沒有看見的神。 21 愛神的,也當愛弟兄,這是我們從神所受的命令。

It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. 44 It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. ...45 ... “The first man Adam became a living being.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

42...所種的是必朽壞的,復活的是不朽壞的; 43 所種的是羞辱的,復活的是榮耀的;所種的是軟弱的,復活的是強壯的; 44 所種的是血氣的身體,復活的是靈性的身體... 45 ...首先的人亞當成了有靈的活人,末後的亞當成了叫人活的靈。

12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. 13 And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.

12 所以,不要容罪在你們必死的身上做王,使你們順從身子的私慾。 13 也不要將你們的肢體獻給罪做不義的器具,倒要像從死裡復活的人,將自己獻給神,並將肢體做義的器具獻給神。 14 罪必不能做你們的主,因你們不在律法之下,乃在恩典之下。

Romans 8:5-8
5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. 8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

5 因為隨從肉體的人,體貼肉體的事;隨從聖靈的人,體貼聖靈的事。 6 體貼肉體的就是死,體貼聖靈的乃是生命、平安。 7 原來體貼肉體的就是與神為仇,因為不服神的律法,也是不能服; 8 而且屬肉體的人不能得神的喜歡。

Daily Scripture - Apr 26

Romans 6:3-11
3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
5 For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, 6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. 7 For he who has died has been freed from sin. 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9 knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. 10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11 Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

3 豈不知我們這受洗歸入基督耶穌的人,是受洗歸入他的死嗎? 4 所以,我們藉著洗禮歸入死,和他一同埋葬,原是叫我們一舉一動有新生的樣式,像基督藉著父的榮耀從死裡復活一樣。 5 我們若在他死的形狀上與他聯合,也要在他復活的形狀上與他聯合。 6 因為知道,我們的舊人和他同釘十字架,使罪身滅絕,叫我們不再做罪的奴僕, 7 因為已死的人是脫離了罪。 8 我們若是與基督同死,就信必與他同活。 9 因為知道,基督既從死裡復活,就不再死,死也不再做他的主了。 10 他死是向罪死了,只有一次;他活是向神活著。 11 這樣,你們向罪也當看自己是死的;向神,在基督耶穌裡,卻當看自己是活的。

2 Corinthians 4:7-12
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 8 We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 12 So then death is working in us, but life in you.

7 我們有這寶貝放在瓦器裡,要顯明這莫大的能力是出於神,不是出於我們。 8 我們四面受敵,卻不被困住;心裡作難,卻不致失望; 9 遭逼迫,卻不被丟棄;打倒了,卻不致死亡; 10 身上常帶著耶穌的死,使耶穌的生也顯明在我們身上。 11 因為我們這活著的人是常為耶穌被交於死地,使耶穌的生在我們這必死的身上顯明出來。 12 這樣看來,死是在我們身上發動,生卻在你們身上發動。

2 Corinthians 2:14-16
14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things?

14 感謝神,常率領我們在基督裡誇勝,並藉著我們在各處顯揚那因認識基督而有的香氣。 15 因為我們在神面前,無論在得救的人身上或滅亡的人身上,都有基督馨香之氣。 16 在這等人,就做了死的香氣叫他死;在那等人,就做了活的香氣叫他活。這事誰能當得起呢?

Philippians 4:11-13
11 Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: 12 I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

11 我並不是因缺乏說這話,我無論在什麼景況都可以知足,這是我已經學會了。 12 我知道怎樣處卑賤,也知道怎樣處豐富,或飽足或飢餓,或有餘或缺乏,隨事隨在,我都得了祕訣。 13 我靠著那加給我力量的,凡事都能做。

It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

31 既是這樣,還有什麼說的呢?神若幫助我們,誰能敵擋我們呢? 32 神既不愛惜自己的兒子,為我們眾人捨了,豈不也把萬物和他一同白白地賜給我們嗎? 33 誰能控告神所揀選的人呢?有神稱他們為義了。 34 誰能定他們的罪呢?有基督耶穌已經死了,而且從死裡復活,現今在神的右邊,也替我們祈求。

Philippians 2:6-11
6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, 7 but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. 9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

6 他本有神的形象,不以自己與神同等為強奪的, 7 反倒虛己,取了奴僕的形象,成為人的樣式; 8 既有人的樣子,就自己卑微,存心順服以至於死,且死在十字架上。9 所以神將他升為至高,又賜給他那超乎萬名之上的名, 10 叫一切在天上的、地上的和地底下的,因耶穌的名無不屈膝, 11 無不口稱耶穌基督為主,使榮耀歸於父神。

Yet He opened not His mouth;
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.

6 我們都如羊走迷,各人偏行己路,耶和華使我們眾人的罪孽都歸在他身上。7 他被欺壓,在受苦的時候卻不開口。他像羊羔被牽到宰殺之地,又像羊在剪毛的人手下無聲,他也是這樣不開口。

The Seventh Day of Passion Week 受難週第七天

The Seventh Day of  Passion Week (Author: YL, Translator: HL)

Today is the last day of the week of crucifixion and the Jewish Sabbath. Jesus was buried in the tomb. The chief priests and the Pharisees deliberated to meet Pilate and asked to send soldiers to guard the tomb of Jesus in case his disciples stole him. After receiving the permission of Pilate, they sealed off the tomb with stones and set up soldiers to keep them safe.

Key Events:
  • Jesus was buried
Events/Facts Location Matthew Mark Luke John
1 The tomb of Jesus was guarded Outside Jerusalem 27:6266
2 The disciples rested on the Sabbath Jerusalem 23:56b

Key Verses
Matthew 27:62-66 The Sabbath
62 On the next day, which followed the Day of Preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees gathered together to Pilate, 63 saying, “Sir, we remember, while He was still alive, how that deceiver said, ‘After three days I will rise.’ 64 Therefore command that the tomb be made secure until the third day, lest His disciples come by night and steal Him away, and say to the people, ‘He has risen from the dead.’ So the last deception will be worse than the first.”
65 Pilate said to them, “You have a guard; go your way, make it as secure as you know how.” 66 So they went and made the tomb secure, sealing the stone and setting the guard.

As the Psalms 2 says: “Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the LORD and against His Anointed.” On that day, the same was true for the chief priests and the Pharisees, who tried to stop Jesus' resurrection through stones and soldiers. "He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The LORD shall hold them in derision." (Psalm 2:4) Do you not know that not only He could not be held by death, but also through death He might destroy the devil who had the power of death, not to mention the hand of man? Although He was in the tomb, He had already won!

Therefore, even in the deepest night we can sing to God, because the dawn of resurrection will surely come!

The 6th Day of Passion Week 受難週第六天

The 6th Day of Passion Week (Author: DX, Translator: KC)

Friday was the day of Jesus’ crucifixion. The four Gospels have all recorded a great deal on that day. Jesus was overwhelmed with sorrow in Gethsemane, and His sweat was as if it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground. Shortly after He was betrayed by Judas, many of the disciples forsook him and fled. Peter disavowed him three times. The soldiers mocked Him and spat on him. Wearing the crown of thorns, covered with cuts and bruises, and after a night of interrogation, Jesus carried the heavy cross and walked towards Calvary, where He was crucified.

Key Verses:
Matthew 26: 36 Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to the disciples, “Sit here while I go and pray over there.” 37 And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and He began to be sorrowful and deeply distressed. 38 Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me.” 39 He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.” 40 Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “What! Could you not watch with Me one hour? 41 Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” 42 Again, a second time, He went away and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if this cup cannot pass away from Me unless I drink it, Your will be done.” 43 And He came and found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy. 44 So He left them, went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words. 45 Then He came to His disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46 Rise, let us be going. See, My betrayer is at hand.”

This is the darkest day in the history of mankind. The pain that Jesus suffered for us on the cross far surpassed our imagination. The Son of God was tortured for us in human form on the cross. He was the holy Lamb of God who bore the sins of the world for us. Jesus was God’s only Son but He was rejected by the Father because of our sin. Therefore, Jesus said He was overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. He prayed, "My Father, if it is possible, let this cup leave me." (Matthew 26:39a) Let us stop at this moment and spend a little time to imagine what Jesus was experiencing.

"Nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will." (Matthew 26:39b) Our Lord was determined to die for our salvation. He did not break away from the suffering of the cross but gave up His life to bear  our sins and penalty. Our Savior changed the entire history of mankind with is love and His death.

Let us praise Him with our hearts, drink the cup, and eat the bread. Jesus bore the curse and we received the blessing. We shall never forget this great love.

36 耶穌同門徒來到一個地方,名叫客西馬尼,就對他們說:「你們坐在這裡,等我到那邊去禱告。」 37 於是帶著彼得和西庇太的兩個兒子同去,就憂愁起來,極其難過, 38 便對他們說:「我心裡甚是憂傷,幾乎要死。你們在這裡等候,和我一同警醒。」 39 他就稍往前走,俯伏在地,禱告說:「我父啊!倘若可行,求你叫這杯離開我!然而,不要照我的意思,只要照你的意思。」40 來到門徒那裡,見他們睡著了,就對彼得說:「怎麼樣,你們不能同我警醒片時嗎? 41 總要警醒禱告,免得入了迷惑。你們心靈固然願意,肉體卻軟弱了。」 42 第二次又去禱告說:「我父啊!這杯若不能離開我,必要我喝,就願你的意旨成全!」 43 又來,見他們睡著了,因為他們的眼睛困倦。 44 耶穌又離開他們去了。第三次禱告,說的話還是與先前一樣。 45 於是來到門徒那裡,對他們說:「現在你們仍然睡覺安歇吧!時候到了,人子被賣在罪人手裡了。 46 起來,我們走吧!看哪,賣我的人近了!」


“然而,不要照我的意思,只要照你的意思。”(太26:39b) 我們的主卻定意為拯救我們而死。祂並非不能脫離十字架的苦楚,乃是將自己的生命傾倒、捨棄,為要代替我們的罪,擔當我們的刑罰。這位救主用祂捨命的大愛改變了整個人類的歷史。

Romans 14:17
17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

The fifth day of Passion Week 受難週第五天

The fifth day of Passion Week (KA)

Most notably, this is the day that Jesus ate His final Passover (often called the Last Supper) and instituted Communion. It is at this meal that Jesus washed the feet of His disciples, commanding them to do the same for each other and to love one another as He has loved each of them. Christ's "mandate" is where we get the name Maundy Thursday.  

At this meal, just prior to His arrest, Jesus predicted what would happen on the next day (and His departure), then He gave His followers symbols of remembrance for His body and His blood to be  sacrificed. Finally, Jesus provided a very important principle for His followers: to love as He loved, to serve as He did. Peter confidently said that he could follow like this but Jesus answered by predicting Peter’s threefold denial.  Jesus’ high priestly prayer was offered up for Peter and the disciples, for Himself, and for all believers.

Key Events:

b. about the vine and the branches as well as loving each other
c. about the Holy Spirit’s coming
d. about praying in the Lord’s name
10 Jesus prayed for his disciples Jerusalem 17:1‐26

Key verses: John 13:31-35  
31 So, when he had gone out, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man is glorified, and God is glorified in Him. 32 If God is glorified in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself, and glorify Him immediately. 33 Little children, I shall be with you a little while longer. You will seek Me; and as I said to the Jews, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come,’ so now I say to you.34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

Meditation: It was with His death on the cross looming that Jesus told His disciples to love one another as He had loved them. Even as Jesus knew that the Father had given all things into His hands, our Lord bent down to wash the feet of sinners. Though there was nothing attractive about sinful mankind to draw Jesus to love us, yet while sinners, He loved the Father and us enough to humble Himself in total surrender to death on a cross. It is by His broken body and His shed blood that we can be accepted by the Father and enter into a living, loving, and daily communion with God, as well as be able to love and unite with one another.  How wonderful, how marvelous the love of God that would stoop so low to wash away the sins of humanity by the blood of the Son.

3/29  受難週第五天     (Author: KA, Translator: YZ)

     在祂被捕之前,主耶穌也預言了第二天將要發生的事(以及祂的離開),並且吩咐門徒們要藉著餅杯來紀念祂捨身流血的愛。提醒他們做主門徒的原則是:像祂一樣去愛,像祂一樣去服事。當彼得憑己意信心滿滿對主耶穌說:“眾人雖然為你的緣故跌倒,我卻永不跌倒” 時。主耶穌卻用預言告訴彼得:“今夜雞叫一先,你要三次不認我”。最後,主耶穌為著彼得和眾人向天父禱告。

約翰福音 13:31-35  
31 他既出去,耶穌就說:「如今人子得了榮耀,神在人子身上也得了榮耀。 32 神要因自己榮耀人子,並且要快快地榮耀他。 33 小子們,我還有不多的時候與你們同在,後來你們要找我,但我所去的地方你們不能到。這話我曾對猶太人說過,如今也照樣對你們說。 34 我賜給你們一條新命令,乃是叫你們彼此相愛,我怎樣愛你們,你們也要怎樣相愛。 35 你們若有彼此相愛的心,眾人因此就認出你們是我的門徒了。」”

     耶穌在十字架上的死,讓我們得以體會祂告訴門徒們的話:像祂愛他們那樣來彼此相愛。即使耶穌知道天父已將萬有都交在祂手中,我們的主卻是彎下身來洗罪人的腳。就著人的本性並沒有什麼可以吸引耶穌來愛我們的,但就在我們還做罪人的時候,主耶穌卻因著愛我們而全然降卑、全然降服且死在十字架上。藉著祂裂開的身體和流出的寶血,使我們可以來到 神的施恩台前蒙恩惠得憐恤,並且每一天都可以與 神有活潑的聯結,與眾聖徒彼此相愛。感謝 神!祂的愛真是奇妙、偉大、遠超越我們所能明白。

詩歌:H696  聖徒眾心愛相繫

Daily Scripture - Mar 28

John 5:39-40
39 You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. 40 But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.

39 「你們查考聖經,因你們以為內中有永生。給我作見證的就是這經, 40 然而你們不肯到我這裡來得生命。

The fourth day of Passion Week 受難週第四天

The fourth day of  Passion Week (Author: JZ, Translator: WC)

In the Four Gospels, there is no other detailed record of Jesus’ words or acts (on the 4th day) but the scripture wrote “And in the daytime He was teaching in the temple, but at night He went out and stayed on the mountain called Olivet” (Luke 21:37). From Matthew 21:17, we know that Jesus probably went to the house of Bethany to spend the night, where lived Martha, who served the Lord diligently, Mary, who loved the Lord with all her heart, and Lazarus, who was revived from the death.

Key Events: In the Four Gospels, there is no detailed record of Jesus’ words or acts (on the 4th day).

Jerusalem, named as the city of peace, the city of David,, where the temple of God was  located, was the place to worship God, to serve God. However, when Jesus came to Jerusalem and entered the temple courts, He began to drive out those who were selling, and said to them “you have made it a den of robbers”.  In reaction to His accusation, the chief priests, the teachers of the law, and the leaders among people did not have faith in Him, and were not willing to confess and repent. They were trying to find a way to kill Him, because they did not feel secure (because all the people hung on His Word.) The Scripture tells us that at the last week before Jesus was persecuted, each evening he went out to spend the night outside the city,  in Bethany. For in Bethany were Mary who loved the Lord with all her heart, Martha who served the Lord diligently, and Lazarus who had been resurrected from the dead.. The reality of life in Bethany was the reality of life in the house of God, where we can see the living testimonies of these three people. These can be the testimonies of our lives as Christians, as well, so that we can attract and satisfy our Lord.

Hymn:I give You My Heart

3/28 受難週第四天   (JZ)


主要事件: 這一天四福音書中均無特別記載耶穌的言行。

18祭司長和文士聽見這話,就想法子要除掉耶穌,卻又怕他,因為眾人都對他的教導感到驚奇。 19每天晚上,他們都到城外去。

     耶路撒冷被稱為大君王的京城, 神的殿也在那裡,是敬拜 神、事奉 神的地方。可是當耶穌來到耶路撒冷時,聖殿卻變成了賊窩,耶穌怒責他們,祭司長和文士不但不信,也不願悔改,還要想法子殺害耶穌,祂的心在這裡不能安息。聖經告訴我們,耶穌在最後一周,每天晚上都到城外,在伯大尼住宿。因為在伯大尼有全心愛主的馬利亞和殷勤事奉主的馬大,還有復活的明證拉撒路。伯大尼的實際也當是神家的實際,伯大尼三個兄妺身上的生命事奉見證,也當是我們每一個基督徒身上該有的生命事奉見證,來滿足耶穌,吸引耶穌。
詩歌:H246   有福的安靜
