Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 18

Thanksgiving Month Introduction...

Psalm 20:1-9
(Memorization Scripture 5,7-9)
1 May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble;
May the name of the God of Jacob defend you;
2 May He send you help from the sanctuary,
And strengthen you out of Zion;
3 May He remember all your offerings,
And accept your burnt sacrifice. Selah
4 May He grant you according to your heart’s desire,
And fulfill all your purpose.
5 We will rejoice in your salvation,
And in the name of our God we will set up our banners!
May the Lord fulfill all your petitions.

6 Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed;
He will answer him from His holy heaven
With the saving strength of His right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses;
But we will remember the name of the Lord our God.
8 They have bowed down and fallen;
But we have risen and stand upright.
9 Save, Lord! May the King answer us when we call.

[Sharing]This psalm is a prayer of the people and the king before going into battle. In verses 1-5, people ask blessings for the king (May the Lord… answer you, protect you, help you, support you, remember you, accept you, give you, make all your plans succeed]. They pray that God Himself will bring salvation. The enemies trust in chariots and horses which are fearful to the Israelites, but David was full of assurance that God is going to save his anointed ones; the people of God trust in the name of the Lord, they lift up the banners in the name of God (Jehovah Nissi), they will rise up and stand firm. Do the problems we are facing and the surrounding sinister environment often make us fearful and timid? Though we may see an army besieging us, we ask in the name of God that He will open our spiritual eyes and let us see the hills full of His horses and chariots of fire (2 Kings 6:15-17), so that we may proclaim and testify in faith: They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm. (v. 8). AMEN!


詩篇 20:1-9
1 願耶和華在你遭難的日子應允你;願名為雅各的 神高舉你。
2 願祂從聖所救助你,從錫安堅固你,
3 記念你的一切供獻,悅納你的燔祭, (細拉)
4 將你心所願的賜給你,成就你的一切籌算。
5 我們要因祢的救恩誇勝,要奉我們 神的名豎立旌旗。願耶和華成就你一切所求的!
6 現在我知道耶和華救護祂的受膏者,必從祂的聖天上應允他,用右手的能力救護他。
7 有人 靠車,有人 靠馬,但我們要提到耶和華-我們 神的名。
8 他們都屈身仆倒,我們卻起來,立得正直。
9 求耶和華施行拯救,我們呼求的時候,願王應允我們!

【心得分享】這是一首參戰前百姓與王共同的祈禱詩,1-5節百姓爲王求祝福:「願耶和華... ...應允你,高舉你,救助你,堅固你,記念你,悅納你,賜給你,成就你......」並祈求 神親自施行拯救。車與馬是敵人所依靠,以色列人所畏懼的;但大衛充滿了把握,知道 神要救護祂的受膏者。 神的百姓要依靠耶和華的名,靠此豎立旌旗(耶和華尼西),必然得勝,站立到底。(第6-8節) 眼前的困難,險惡的環境,是否也常常叫我們畏懼、膽怯?雖然眼見的是車馬軍兵圍困了我們,但讓我們用信心求告耶和華的名,求祂要開我們屬靈的眼睛,讓我們看見滿山有 神的火車火馬圍繞保護我們(王下6:15-17), 以至於我們都可以在信心的裡面宣告和見證:「他們都屈身仆倒,我們卻起來,立得正直(第8節)」。阿們!

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 17

Thanksgiving Month Introduction...

Psalm 116:8-14
(Memorization Scripture 12-14)
8 For You have delivered my soul from death,
My eyes from tears, And my feet from falling.
9 I will walk before the Lord, In the land of the living.
10 I believed, therefore I spoke, “I am greatly afflicted.”
11 I said in my haste, “All men are liars.”
12 What shall I render to the Lord, For all His benefits toward me?
13 I will take up the cup of salvation, And call upon the name of the Lord.
14 I will pay my vows to the Lord, Now in the presence of all His people.

[Sharing] How do we respond to suffering in hindsight? In this psalm, the psalmist has been delivered from trouble and sorrow as pains of death that had surrounded him, He called on the name of the Lord, and the Lord heard his plea and delivered his soul from death, his eyes from tears, and his feet from falling.
After the psalmist experienced God’s salvation in suffering, he chose to take up the cup of salvation, to call upon the name of the Lord, and to give glory and praise to God. Let's also think about our own situation. How can we look back on suffering and be still thankful? The answer is by remembering His faithfulness to us throughout and delivering us. May David’s response to suffering become our response in facing our own difficulties.


詩篇 116:8-14
8 主啊,祢救我的命免了死亡,救我的眼免了流淚,救我的腳免了跌倒。
9 我要在耶和華面前行活人之路。
10 我因信,所以如此說話。
11 我受了極大的困苦。我曾急促地說:「人都是說謊的。」
12 我拿什麼報答耶和華向我所賜的一切厚恩?
13 我要舉起救恩的杯,稱揚耶和華的名。
14 我要在祂眾民面前向耶和華還我的願。

【心得分享】在這首讚美詩中,詩人從宛如死亡的繩索纏繞他的痛苦和悲痛中被解脫出來。神聽了詩人的懇求和聲音,救他的命免了死亡,救他的眼免了流淚,救他的腳免了跌倒。當詩人經歷 神在患難中的搭救之後,他選擇在今後的日子裡,在耶和華面前行活人之路,也要在眾人的面前,舉起救恩的杯,稱揚耶和華的名,將榮耀感恩來歸給 神。讓我們也都思想一下自己的光景與經歷。我們該如何回顧苦難並感恩?答案就是通過牢記祂對我們的信實及拯救。甚願詩人在患難中的反應也成為我們今天面對一切艱難的反應。

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 16

Thanksgiving Month Introduction...

Psalm 142:1-7
(Memorization Scripture 5-7)
1 I cry out to the Lord with my voice;
With my voice to the Lord I make my supplication.
2 I pour out my complaint before Him; I declare before Him my trouble.
3 When my spirit was overwhelmed within me,
Then You knew my path. In the way in which I walk
They have secretly set a snare for me.
4 Look on my right hand and see, For there is no one who acknowledges me;
Refuge has failed me; No one cares for my soul.
5 I cried out to You, O Lord: I said, “You are my refuge,
My portion in the land of the living.
6 Attend to my cry, For I am brought very low;
Deliver me from my persecutors, For they are stronger than I.
7 Bring my soul out of prison, That I may praise Your name;
The righteous shall surround me, For You shall deal bountifully with me.”

[Sharing]Today’s Psalm is a prayer written by David when he was in the cave because of persecution from King Saul. In this psalm, David pleaded his complaint and trouble to God and declared his loneliness, weakness, and helplessness in the midst of enemies trying to overtake him. As an act of faith, David turned to God, he declared “You are my refuge, My portion in the land of the living.” (v.5) David had faith that God would incline His ear and hear his words, and that God Himself, would ‘Bring my (David’s) soul out of prison’ (v.7), and “The righteous shall surround me (David)” (v.7). From this passage, we find the perfect response to the injustice, trials, despair, and low points of our daily walk with God. We are reminded, by the experiences of David, that no matter which hardship we are going through, we should look upon God with a humble heart like David’s, and put faith in Him that He will deliver us out of all troubles, for He is our refuge and portion, and also our salvation. Together we praise His name!


詩篇 142:1-7
1 我發聲哀告耶和華,發聲懇求耶和華。
2 我在祂面前吐露我的苦情,陳說我的患難。
3 我的靈在我裡面發昏的時候,祢知道我的道路。在我行的路上,敵人為我暗設網羅。
4 求祢向我右邊觀看,因為沒有人認識我;我無處避難,也沒有人眷顧我。
5 耶和華啊,我曾向祢哀求,我說:「祢是我的避難所,在活人之地祢是我的福分。」
6 求祢側耳聽我的呼求,因我落到極卑之地;求祢救我脫離逼迫我的人,因為他們比我強盛。
7 求祢領我出離被囚之地,我好稱讚祢的名。義人必環繞我,因為祢是用厚恩待我。

【心得分享】本篇是大衛逃避掃羅王時,在洞中所作的訓誨詩。在本詩中,大衛向耶和華哀告他的苦情和患難,並陳訴自己被敵人追殺的孤單、軟弱和無助。他一無隱瞞地告訴他的 神,這些仇敵比他強盛,他現在的景況到了極卑之地。但是,他還是能在信心裡宣告說:「祢是我的避難所;在活人之地,祢是我的福分!」(第5節) 他相信 神會側耳而聽他的呼求,親自「領他出離被囚之地」(第7節),並使義人環繞他,用厚恩待他。在這段經文中,我們找到了在我們每天與 神同行時,如何回應不公正、磨難、絕望和低谷的完美範例。藉著大衛的經歷,提醒我們無論處在什麼困境,甚至心裡發昏、絕望時,都要真實地到 神面前傾心吐意,堅信祂必能帶領我們脫離一切困境,並且有一天,我們還要來稱謝祂!

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 15

Thanksgiving Month Introduction...

Psalm 9:1-4,7-14,19-20
(Memorization Scripture 1-2,19-20)
1 I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works.
2 I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.

3 When my enemies turn back, They shall fall and perish at Your presence.
4 For You have maintained my right and my cause;
You sat on the throne judging in righteousness....
7 But the Lord shall endure forever; He has prepared His throne for judgment.
8 He shall judge the world in righteousness,
And He shall administer judgment for the peoples in uprightness.
9 The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, A refuge in times of trouble.
10 And those who know Your name will put their trust in You;
For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.
11 Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion! Declare His deeds among the people.
12 When He avenges blood, He remembers them; He does not forget the cry of the humble.
13 Have mercy on me, O Lord! Consider my trouble from those who hate me,
You who lift me up from the gates of death,
14 That I may tell of all Your praise, In the gates of the daughter of Zion.
I will rejoice in Your salvation....
19 Arise, O Lord, Do not let man prevail; Let the nations be judged in Your sight.
20 Put them in fear, O Lord, That the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah

[Sharing]“Arise, O Lord! Let not man prevail”. We need to hear this today as our academia, media, and our own hearts brag that mankind is the center of the universe. We need this truth to rule our minds today - this life is neither ruled by us or the threat of our enemies. I can turn to the Lord in great thanksgiving as it is He who sits enthroned forever, it is His justice that rules, and He is the stronghold in whom we can put our trust. Even in the dark days of tragedy and failure in our own lives and in times when it seems evil is winning, our Lord is present with us in the world for He “dwells in Zion” (v. 11), and is actively judging evil (vv. 4, 7-8, 12), and never forgets His people (v.10) but shows such great mercy and care. What does this mean for the psalmist and for me? It means, instead of boasting of myself or cowering in fear and despair, I can publicly (v.14,) praise the Lord with my whole life (v.1) for delivering me from sin, enemies, and death! Let’s sing together today, I will rejoice in your salvation!


詩篇 9:1-4,7-14,19-20
1 我要一心稱謝耶和華;我要傳揚祢一切奇妙的作為。
2 我要因祢歡喜快樂;至高者啊,我要歌頌祢的名!

3 我的仇敵轉身退去的時候,他們一見祢的面就跌倒滅亡。
4 因祢已經為我伸冤,為我辨屈;祢坐在寶座上,按公義審判。...
7 惟耶和華坐著為王,直到永遠;祂已經為審判設擺祂的寶座。
8 祂要按公義審判世界,按正直判斷萬民。
9 耶和華又要給受欺壓的人作高臺,在患難的時候作高臺。
10 耶和華啊,認識祢名的人要倚靠祢,因祢沒有離棄尋求祢的人。
11 應當歌頌居錫安的耶和華,將祂所行的傳揚在眾民中。
12 因為那追討流人血之罪的-祂記念受屈的人,不忘記困苦人的哀求。
13 耶和華啊,祢是從死門把我提拔起來的;求祢憐恤我,看那恨我的人所加給我的苦難,
14 好叫我述說祢一切的美德;我必在錫安城 (- 原文是女子) 的門因祢的救恩歡樂。...
19 耶和華啊,求祢起來,不容人得勝,願外邦人在祢面前受審判!
20 耶和華啊,求祢使外邦人恐懼,願他們知道自己不過是人!(細拉)

【心得分享】「耶和華啊,求祢起來,不容人得勝!」在這個以「人」为宇宙中心的時代,多麼需要聽到這樣一句話!當學術界,媒體,和我們的心不停地抬高「人」的地位時,這個道理一定要緊緊地控制我們的思想:我的一生不是被「我」或者我的敵人掌控。我要轉眼仰望 神,感謝祂,因祂永遠坐在寶座,祂的公義掌權,並且祂是我們的堡壘。甚至在我們悲傷和失敗的時候,好像仇敵在誇勝的時候,主依然與我們同在, 因祂是「居錫安的耶和華」(第11節)。祂在審判罪惡(第4,7,8,12節),也從不忘記祂的子民(第10節),何等的憐憫和慈愛。這對詩篇的作者、對我意味著什麼?它意味著我們不當自誇,也不當畏懼或絕望,而是在公眾前(第14節)一心(第1節)讚美祂。因祂救贖我們脫離罪、仇敵、甚至死亡!我們應當今日一起歌唱:「我因祢的救恩歡樂!」

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 14

Thanksgiving Month Introduction...

Psalm 34:1-8
(Memorization Scripture 1-3,7-8)
1 I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
3 Oh, magnify the Lord with me, And let us exalt His name together.

4 I sought the Lord, and He heard me, And delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces were not ashamed.
6 This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him, And saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them.
8 Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!

[Sharing] After David departed from Abimelech the king of the Philistines, he wrote this psalm to give thanks to God for answering him when he called upon the Lord in distress, listening to his prayer in trouble. David said “I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” (v. 1). Also the psalmist invited us to exalt His name and to give thanks to God, for He sent His messengers far off and encamped all around those who fear Him, so that those who looked to Him will not be ashamed. When you face challenges and go through a spiritual valley, please do not forget that our God is good. Open your eyes of faith and look around, “The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them.” (v. 7) For we not only see, but taste the Grace of the Lord, and we (shall) live through the greatness of God day by day. David said: “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all.” (v. 19) Praise the Lord! Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!


詩篇 34:1-8
1 我要時時稱頌耶和華,讚美祂的話必常在我口中。
2 我的心必因耶和華誇耀,謙卑人聽見,就要喜樂。
3 你們和我當稱耶和華為大,一同高舉祂的名。

4 我曾尋求耶和華,祂就應允我,救我脫離了一切的恐懼。
5 凡仰望祂的便有光榮,他們的臉必不蒙羞。
6 我這困苦人呼求,耶和華便垂聽,救我脫離一切患難。
7 耶和華的使者在敬畏祂的人四圍安營,搭救他們。
8 你們要嘗嘗主恩的滋味,便知道祂是美善。投靠祂的人有福了!

【心得分享】 大衛從非利士王亞比米勒面前逃離後,就作詩感謝 神在急難中應允他的尋求;在困苦艱難中垂聽他的禱告;救他脫離了一切的恐懼和患難。他說:「我要時時稱頌耶和華,讚美祂的話必常在我口中」。也邀請我們和他一同來高舉稱謝耶和華的名,因為祂差派使者四圍安營保守敬畏祂的人,叫凡仰望祂的人必不蒙羞。
當你遇到困境和屬靈低谷時,千萬不要忘記,我們的 神是美善的,張開你信心的眼睛看:「祂使者正在你的四圍安營,如同當年滿山的火車火馬圍繞以利沙一樣圍繞你」。不但看見,而且我們還要去嘗嘗主的恩典,在每天的實際生活去經歷 神的美善。大衛說:「義人多有苦難,但耶和華救他脫離這一切」。(參詩34:19)真是感謝主,投靠祂的人有福了!

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 13

Thanksgiving Month Introduction...

Psalm 103:1-13
(Memorization Scripture 1-5,8-13)
1 Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:
3 Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,
4 Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

6 The Lord executes righteousness. And justice for all who are oppressed.
7 He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel.
8 The Lord is merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.
9 He will not always strive with us, Nor will He keep His anger forever.
10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, Nor punished us according to our iniquities.
11 For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;
12 As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
13 As a father pities his children, So the Lord pities those who fear Him.

[Sharing] Have you ever talked to your heart? When facing extreme difficulties, have you ever encouraged yourself to bless the Lord? David started with “Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!” in the psalm today, and it feels like he needed to consciously encourage himself to give thanks to our Lord. David reminded himself to not forget all of the Lord’s blessings - the forgiveness of all of his iniquities, the healing of all his diseases, the redemption of his life from destruction, and being crowned with lovingkindness and tender mercies. David was also able to give thanks to the Lord as God satisfied his mouth with good things, so that his youth was renewed like the eagles. As David counted God’s blessings one by one, the Spirit enlightened him to acknowledge God’s everlasting mercy and love, a love so wide, so long, so deep, and so high that it goes well beyond our knowledge.
Maybe you’re facing some challenging situations right now that drain you, but like David you can encourage yourself not to be overwhelmed! In spite of all life’s afflictions, let’s remind ourselves to proclaim- “Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits”!


詩篇 103:1-13
1 我的心哪,你要稱頌耶和華;凡在我裡面的,也要稱頌祂的聖名!
2 我的心哪,你要稱頌耶和華,不可忘記祂的一切恩惠。
3 祂赦免你的一切罪孽,醫治你的一切疾病。
4 祂救贖你的命脫離死亡,以仁愛和慈悲為你的冠冕。
5 祂用美物使你所願的得以知足,以致你如鷹返老還童。

6 耶和華施行公義,為一切受屈的人申冤。
7 祂使摩西知道祂的法則,叫以色列人曉得祂的作為。
8 耶和華有憐憫,有恩典,不輕易發怒,且有豐盛的慈愛。
9 祂不長久責備,也不永遠懷怒。
10 祂沒有按我們的罪過待我們,也沒有照我們的罪孽報應我們。
11 天離地何等的高,祂的慈愛向敬畏祂的人也是何等的大。
12 東離西有多遠,祂叫我們的過犯離我們也有多遠。
13 父親怎樣憐恤他的兒女,耶和華也怎樣憐恤敬畏祂的人。

【心得分享】 你是否曾經向自己說話?當你在面對人生的低谷的時候,你是否曾經鼓勵你自己要來稱頌耶和華?在今天的詩篇中,大衛一開始就講到「我的心哪,你要稱頌耶和華;凡在我裡面的,也要稱頌祂的聖名!」似乎大衛的心也需要一些的鼓勵才能向 神發出感恩。大衛提醒自己不可忘記耶和華 神的一切恩惠。祂是如何赦免他一切的罪孽,醫治他的一切疾病;不僅僅救贖他的命脫離死亡,更以仁愛和慈悲為他的冠冕;還用美物使大衛所願的得以知足,以致大衛能常常如鷹返老還童。當他這樣一一數算 神的恩典,聖靈就開啟他認識了 神的慈愛和憐憫,實在是何等的長闊高深,過於我們能測度的!

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 12

Thanksgiving Month Introduction...

Psalm 98:1-9
(Memorization Scripture 1,4-5)
1 Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! For He has done marvelous things;
His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory.

2 The Lord has made known His salvation;
His righteousness He has revealed in the sight of the nations.
3 He has remembered His mercy and His faithfulness to the house of Israel;
All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
4 Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth; Break forth in song, rejoice, and sing praises.
5 Sing to the Lord with the harp, With the harp and the sound of a psalm,

6 With trumpets and the sound of a horn; Shout joyfully before the Lord, the King.
7 Let the sea roar, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell in it;
8 Let the rivers clap their hands; Let the hills be joyful together
9 before the Lord,For He is coming to judge the earth. With righteousness He shall judge the world,
And the peoples with equity.

[Sharing] “Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! For He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory” (v. 1). Praise the Lord for He is God who makes us sing new songs! Our God does marvelous things. His work among the people of Israel is marvelous. Similarly, God accomplished the marvelous work of salvation through His son Jesus, whose name is “wonderful” (Isaiah 9:6). Jesus is the Incarnate Word. He lived among us and paid our debt on the cross. He was resurrected, and he ascended to the heavens. He will come again and bring judgement. God’s salvation, from beginning to end, is full of marvels.
Not only did God accomplish salvation before the foundation of the world, but every day He brings renewal into our lives. Each day, God delivers us from a fallen world and from our sin nature so that we are not condemned before His righteous judgement. The “new song” flows out of the new experiences we have under God’s saving grace. As it is written, “[Your mercies and compassions] are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:23). Day by day, let us take to heart God’s new work in us through His finished salvation and to count His blessings. Let us shout joyfully before Him and sing to Him a new song.


詩篇 98:1-9
1 你們要向耶和華唱新歌!因為祂行過奇妙的事;祂的右手和聖臂施行救恩。
2 耶和華發明了祂的救恩,在列邦人眼前顯出公義;
3 記念祂向以色列家所發的慈愛,所憑的信實。地的四極都看見我們 神的救恩。
4 全地都要向耶和華歡樂;要發起大聲,歡呼歌頌!
5 要用琴歌頌耶和華,用琴和詩歌的聲音歌頌祂!

6 用號和角聲,在大君王耶和華面前歡呼!
7 願海和其中所充滿的澎湃;世界和住在其間的也要發聲。
8 願大水拍手;願諸山在耶和華面前一同歡呼;
9 因為祂來要審判遍地。祂要按公義審判世界,按公正審判萬民。

【心得分享】 「你們要向耶和華唱新歌,因為祂行過奇妙的事;祂右手和聖臂施行救恩。」(第1節)感謝主,耶和華是讓我們能向祂唱新歌的 神。祂是我們的 神,是獨行奇事的那一位,祂在以色列人身上的作爲是奇妙的,同樣,神藉著祂的兒子主耶穌,在你我身上也成就了奇妙的救恩。主耶穌的名字就是 「奇妙」(賽9:6),祂道成肉身、在地的生活、十架的代贖、復活與升天、再來與審判。 神的救恩,從起頭到末了,都滿了奇妙。
神不單在創世以前已完成了救恩,也在我們生活的每一天施行祂新的拯救,從一切的環境,罪性裡面把我們拯救出來,免於 神公義的審判。「新」歌是由我們對 神的救恩有新鮮的經歷而來,「每早晨這都是新的,祢的誠實極其廣大!」(哀 3:23 )。要悉心的捕捉 神的救恩在我們身上新的工作,數算 神的恩典,以此向耶和華歡呼,唱「新」歌。

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 11

Thanksgiving Month Introduction...

Psalm 51:1-19
(Memorization Scripture 10-12,17-18)
1 Have mercy upon me, O God, According to Your lovingkindness;
According to the multitude of Your tender mercies, Blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I acknowledge my transgressions, And my sin is always before me.
4 Against You, You only, have I sinned, And done this evil in Your sight—
That You may be found just when You speak, And blameless when You judge.
5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.
6 Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts, And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.
7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8 Make me hear joy and gladness, That the bones You have broken may rejoice.
9 Hide Your face from my sins, And blot out all my iniquities.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
11 Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.

13 Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, And sinners shall be converted to You.
14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, The God of my salvation,
And my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.
15 O Lord, open my lips, And my mouth shall show forth Your praise.
16 For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it; You do not delight in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, A broken and a contrite heart—
These, O God, You will not despise.
18 Do good in Your good pleasure to Zion; Build the walls of Jerusalem.

19 Then You shall be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, With burnt offering and whole burnt offering;
Then they shall offer bulls on Your altar.

[Sharing] This psalm is the most renown of all prayers of repentance. The psalm can always help us to turn back to the Lord with broken and contrite hearts when our conscience is accused for our sins so as to receive the timely forgiveness and deliverance. The psalmist believed that if he (himself) is willing to confess to God and repent in truth, God Himself will “Hide (His) face from my sins, And blot out all my iniquities.” (v.9) and “For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted” (2 Corinthians 7:10). Such a repentant sinner responds in thankfulness when they know the wonderful mercy that has blotted out all of the iniquities: Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods, having great mercy, passing over the transgressions and cleansing all the iniquities by which we have sinned against Him, (so) “that the bones You have broken may rejoice (vv. 7-8).
Furthermore, God not only forgives but gives us a new heart and a new spirit, that we may do His will. David said “Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me” (vv. 10-11). Praise the Lord that all today’s believers of our Savior Christ Jesus have already received “the clean hearts” and the indwelling Spirit who will never depart from us. After offering a broken and contrite heart to God, the psalmist, with boldness and diligence, asked for an obedient spirit. He rejoiced in His salvation again, and never let sin separate him from God (v.12). If we confess and repent in truth, it shows we know God’s grace and aim to bear fruit worthy of repentance.
At the end of the prayer, the psalmist asked blessings for Zion and Jerusalem, that God shall build the walls of Jerusalem, to protect the children of God from falling into the net which their enemies have laid, and they therefore would not sin against Him like the psalmist. How amazing this change of life is!


詩篇 51:1-19
1 神啊,求祢按祢的慈愛憐恤我,按祢豐盛的慈悲塗抹我的過犯!
2 求祢將我的罪孽洗除淨盡,並潔除我的罪!
3 因為我知道我的過犯,我的罪常在我面前。
4 我向祢犯罪,唯獨得罪了祢,在祢眼前行了這惡,
5 我是在罪孽裡生的,在我母親懷胎的時候就有了罪。
6 祢所喜愛的是內裡誠實,祢在我隱密處必使我得智慧。
7 求祢用牛膝草潔淨我,我就乾淨;求祢洗滌我,我就比雪更白。
8 求祢使我得聽歡喜快樂的聲音,使祢所壓傷的骨頭可以踴躍。
9 求祢掩面不看我的罪,塗抹我一切的罪孽。
10 神啊,求祢為我造清潔的心,使我裡面重新有正直的靈。
11 不要丟棄我,使我離開祢的面,不要從我收回祢的聖靈。
12 求祢使我仍得救恩之了樂,賜我樂意的靈扶持我。

13 我就把祢的道指教有過犯的人,罪人必歸順祢。
14 神啊,祢是拯救我的 神;求祢救我脫離流人血的罪!我的舌頭就高聲歌唱祢的公義。
15 主啊,求祢使我嘴唇張開,我的口便傳揚讚美祢的話!
16 祢本不喜愛祭物,若喜愛,我就獻上;燔祭,祢也不喜悅。
17 神所要的祭就是憂傷的靈;神啊,憂傷痛悔的心,祢必不輕看。
18 求祢隨祢的美意善待錫安,建造耶路撒冷的城牆。

19 那時,祢必喜愛公義的祭和燔祭並全牲的燔祭;那時,人必將公牛獻在祢壇上。

【心得分享】 這是七篇懺悔詩裡最著名的一篇,常常幫助我們在軟弱、犯罪及良心受控告時效法大衛以憂傷痛悔的心迴轉向 神,從祂得及時的赦免和釋放。詩人相信只要願意向 神真心認罪悔改,祂就「掩面不看我的罪,塗抹我一切的罪孽。」(第9節)「依 神的意思憂愁,就生出沒有後悔的懊悔來,以致得救。」 (林後7:10)一個犯下重罪的人(第4節),在這個時刻,不僅是滿心的懊悔,也一定是充滿了感恩。有何 神像我們的 神這樣有豐盛的憐憫和赦罪之恩,願意塗抹、潔淨我們一切已犯的罪,並且使我們原本因受定罪而壓傷的骨頭都可以再起來踴躍!(第7-8節)
更沒想到的,是 神還要賜給我們新心和新靈,使我們可以遵行祂的旨意。大衛呼求說,「神啊,求祢為我造清潔的心,使我裡面重新有正直的靈。不要丟棄我,使我離開祢的面,不要從我收回祢的聖靈。」(第10-11節)感謝主,因著彌賽亞的救贖,蒙恩的信徒今天都得著了這「清潔的心」,並且聖靈也內主在我們裡面,永不離開。在獻上憂傷痛悔的心為祭物之後,詩人坦然而且迫切地祈求一個樂意順服的靈,他要重新以 神的救恩為樂,再也不讓罪使他與 神分離。(第12節)一個真正憂傷痛悔的人,一定是一個認識恩典的人,也一定是曉得用實際的改變來證實他的悔改的人。(第13-17節)
最後,詩人不忘記為錫安與耶路撒冷求祝福,求 神來建造耶路撒冷的城牆,保護 神的兒女不像他自己一樣陷在仇敵的網羅裡而得罪 神。何等的感恩,如此生命的轉變。

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 10

Thanksgiving Month Introduction...

Psalm 32:1-11
(Memorization Scripture 1,5-7)
1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered.
2 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity,
And in whose spirit there is no deceit.
3 When I kept silent, my bones grew old, Through my groaning all the day long.
4 For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me;
My vitality was turned into the drought of summer. Selah
5 I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I have not hidden.
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”
And You forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah
6 For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You
In a time when You may be found; Surely in a flood of great waters
They shall not come near him.
7 You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble;
You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah

8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will guide you with My eye.
9 Do not be like the horse or like the mule, Which have no understanding,
Which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, Else they will not come near you.
10 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked;
But he who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him.
11 Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous;
And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

[Sharing]“Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered”! Today do you know the joy of being truly, completely forgiven? Once you were bound in sin, crushed in iniquity, and enslaved under the heavy load of your flesh and rebellion. And just as our merciful Father forgave us when Jesus was bound to the cross for our sin and was crushed for our iniquities, so too, His grace is available now as you acknowledge your sin before Him. Oh, what daily joy and thanksgiving is ours in being able to talk to God in confession and to be graciously delivered from sin! Don’t groan through today under sin’s heavy weight but come rest in your Lord who will deliver and preserve you. Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous. And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!


詩篇 32:1-11
1 得赦免其過、遮蓋其罪的,這人是有福的!
2 凡心裡沒有詭詐,耶和華不算為有罪的,這人是有福的!
3 我閉口不認罪的時候,因終日唉哼而骨頭枯乾。
4 黑夜白日,祢的手在我身上沉重,我的精液耗盡,如同夏天的乾旱。(細拉)
5 我向祢陳明我的罪,不隱瞞我的惡。
6 為此,凡虔誠人都當趁祢可尋找的時候禱告祢,大水泛溢的時候,必不能到祂那裡。
7 祢是我藏身之處,祢必保佑我脫離苦難,以得救的樂歌四面環繞我。(細拉)

8 我要教導你,指示你當行的路,我要定睛在你身上勸誡你。
9 你不可像那無知的騾馬,必用嚼環轡頭勒住牠,不然就不能馴服。
10 惡人必多受苦楚,唯獨倚靠耶和華的,必有慈愛四面環繞他。
11 你們義人應當靠耶和華歡喜快樂,你們心裡正直的人都當歡呼!

【心得分享】 「得赦免其過、遮蓋其罪的,這人是有福的!」你嘗過被 神完全赦免的喜樂嗎?曾經的我們都被罪所捆綁,被惡所壓傷,被肉體和老我所轄制。然而耶穌為我們的罪被釘在十字架上,背負了我們一切的不義。當我們在十架下向 神認罪之時,慈愛的 神赦免的恩典臨到我們。如今我們可以坦然無懼地向 神認罪,與 神交通,並且完全不再受罪的轄制,這實在值得我們每天都歡喜快樂地向 神獻上感恩的!不要再在罪的重擔下唉哼了,到拯救並保全我們的 神面前安息吧!你們義人應當靠耶和華歡喜快樂,你們心裡正直的人都當歡呼!

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 09

Thanksgiving Month Introduction...

Psalm 30:4-5,10-12
(Memorization Scripture 4-5,11-12)
4 Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His,
And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
5 For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life;
Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.
10 Hear, O Lord, and have mercy on me; Lord, be my helper!”
11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,
12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

[Sharing] Life so often moves in rhythms of peaks and valleys, with our darker days often throwing us into despair, worry, and even bitterness. David does not whitewash his mourning but recognizes that through times of heartache and seasons of refining come thankfulness because the joy of the Lord does come in the morning and His favor lasts a lifetime. Darkness does not last; God sees to that! We can give thanks to God always and forever for turning our mourning into dancing and removing our sackcloth to clothe us in His goodness, all so that we may sing His glory and not be silent.


詩篇 30:4-5,10-12
4 耶和華的聖民哪,你們要歌頌祂,稱讚祂可記念的聖名。
5 因為,祂的怒氣不過是轉眼之間;祂的恩典乃是一生之久。一宿雖然有哭泣, 早晨便必歡呼。
10 耶和華啊,求祢應允我,憐恤我! 耶和華啊,求祢幫助我!
11 祢已將我的哀哭變為跳舞, 將我的麻衣脫去,給我披上喜樂,
12 好叫我的靈 (- 原文是榮耀) 歌頌祢,並不住聲。 耶和華-我的 神啊,我要稱謝祢,直到永遠。

【心得分享】 我們的生命中有高山也有低谷。在艱難的日子里,我們會心存憂慮,絕望,甚至苦毒。在這首詩篇中,大衛絲毫沒有粉飾他的哀痛,他知道我們這群蒙恩的子民,即使是與慈愛的 神立約,也會經歷心碎與試煉。但他更知道 神所賜的喜樂每早晨都是新鮮,祂的恩典乃是一生之久! 神看顧我們,所以黑暗總會過去。因此就算是在苦難中,我們也可以有真實的感恩。讓我們學習在任何的環境中都把感恩歸給 神,因為祂會將我們的哀哭變為跳舞,將我們的麻衣脫去,給我們披上喜樂。 讓我們都來歌頌祂,並不住聲!

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 08

Thanksgiving Month Introduction...

Psalm 107:1-9
(Memorization Scripture 6-9)
1 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
For His [a]mercy endures forever.
2 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy,
3 And gathered out of the lands,
From the east and from the west,
From the north and from the south.
4 They wandered in the wilderness in a desolate way;
They found no city to dwell in.
5 Hungry and thirsty,
Their soul fainted in them.
6 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
And He delivered them out of their distresses.
7 And He led them forth by the right way,
That they might go to a city for a dwelling place.
8 Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,
And for His wonderful works to the children of men!
9 For He satisfies the longing soul,
And fills the hungry soul with goodness.

[Sharing] The psalmist says that each one who received grace should give thanks to God. By counting the grace of God, we should be reminded that He is good, and His mercy endures forever. He saved us from enemies, and from the hand of all who hate us, and He led us the right way, so that we would not be lost in the wilderness. Also out of His love, He promised that “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.” (Matthew 5:6) Yes, all we like sheep have gone astray, it is He that found us in the wasteland, a howling wilderness. He encircled us with love, He instructed us, He kept us as the apple of His eye. And also He poured out His soul and became the bread of life for us. As Jesus said “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.” (John 6:35) Moreover, He also leads us into His richness where “He satisfies the longing soul and fills the hungry soul with goodness.” (v9)


詩篇 107:1-9
1 「你們要稱謝耶和華,因他本為善,他的慈愛永遠長存!」
2 願耶和華的贖民說這話,就是他從敵人手中所救贖的,
3 從各地,從東從西,從南從北所招聚來的。4 他們在曠野荒地漂流,尋不見可住的城邑,
5 又飢又渴,心裡發昏。
6 於是他們在苦難中哀求耶和華,他從他們的禍患中搭救他們。
7 又領他們行走直路,使他們往可居住的城邑。
8 但願人因耶和華的慈愛和他向人所行的奇事都稱讚他!
9 因他使心裡渴慕的人得以知足,使心裡飢餓的人得飽美物。

【心得分享】 詩人呼籲每一個蒙恩的人都要來稱謝耶和華,藉著數算 神的恩典提醒我們,我們的 神本為善,祂的慈愛永遠長存! 神曾救贖我們脫離仇敵的手,領我們行走直路,不在曠野漂流。又因愛應許我們,凡心裡渴慕尋求祂的人都得飽足。是的,我們也都曾如羊走迷,是祂把我們從曠野荒涼野獸吼叫之地找回,用愛環繞我們,看顧我們,保護我們,如同保護眼中的瞳人。祂又將自己的生命傾倒,成為我們生命的糧,正如耶穌所說:「我就是生命的糧。到我這裡來的,必定不餓;信我的,永遠不渴。」(約6:35)不但如此,祂還帶我們進入祂的豐富,「使心裡渴慕的人得以知足,使心裡飢餓的人得飽美物」。

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 07

Thanksgiving Month Introduction...

Psalm 92:1-15
(Memorization Scripture 12-15)
1 It is good to give thanks to the Lord, And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
2 To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning, And Your faithfulness every night,
3 On an instrument of ten strings, On the lute, And on the harp, With harmonious sound.
4 For You, Lord, have made me glad through Your work;
I will triumph in the works of Your hands.
5 O Lord, how great are Your works! Your thoughts are very deep.
6 A senseless man does not know, Nor does a fool understand this.
7 When the wicked [a]spring up like grass, And when all the workers of iniquity flourish,
It is that they may be destroyed forever.
8 But You, Lord, are on high forevermore.
9 For behold, Your enemies, O Lord, For behold, Your enemies shall perish;
All the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
10 But my [b]horn You have exalted like a wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil.
11 My eye also has seen my desire on my enemies;
My ears hear my desire on the wicked. Who rise up against me.
12 The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13 Those who are planted in the house of the Lord. Shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They shall still bear fruit in old age; They shall be [c]fresh and [d]flourishing,
15 To declare that the Lord is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.

[Sharing] These few years have been particularly challenging, but we are still invited to “declare [His] lovingkindness in the morning, and [His] faithfulness every night.” If we begin each day with praises and thanksgiving towards God, our focus turns from the burdens and pressures of life to our loving Lord. We are then able to enjoy His lovingkindness and blessings, and to experience His amazing work. And just suppose, at the end of each day, if we would come before God again to reflect on how He has led us through the day by the integrity of His heart and the skillfulness of His hands, oh our gratitude would overflow!
Let’s learn to speak the words of faith and love in the name of Jesus to ourselves and our companions: “We shall flourish like palm trees, grow like cedars in Lebanon, still bear fruit and be fresh and flourishing in old age.” How blessed our lives will be!


詩篇 92:1-15
1 稱謝耶和華,歌頌你至高者的名,
2 用十弦的樂器和瑟,用琴彈幽雅的聲音,早晨傳揚你的慈愛,每夜傳揚你的信實,這本為美事。 3 
4 因你耶和華藉著你的作為叫我高興,我要因你手的工作歡呼。
5 耶和華啊,你的工作何其大!你的心思極其深!
6 畜類人不曉得,愚頑人也不明白:
7 惡人茂盛如草,一切作孽之人發旺的時候,正是他們要滅亡,直到永遠。
8 唯你耶和華是至高,直到永遠。
9 耶和華啊,你的仇敵都要滅亡,一切作孽的也要離散。
10 你卻高舉了我的角,如野牛的角;我是被新油膏了的。
11 我眼睛看見仇敵遭報,我耳朵聽見那些起來攻擊我的惡人受罰。
12 義人要發旺如棕樹,生長如黎巴嫩的香柏樹。
13 他們栽於耶和華的殿中,發旺在我們神的院裡。
14 他們年老的時候仍要結果子,要滿了汁漿而常發青,
15 好顯明耶和華是正直的,他是我的磐石,在他毫無不義。

【心得分享】這幾年對我們每一人來說都不容易,但我們仍要「早晨傳揚 神的慈愛,每夜傳揚 神的信實」。當我們用向 神的感謝和讚美來開始一天的生活的時候,我們的注意力不知不覺地就從所要面對的壓力和重擔上,轉移到這位慈愛的主的身上。這可以幫助我們在一天的生活中,更多地來享受祂的慈愛和眷顧,經歷祂奇妙的作為。而當一天結束的時候,我們再一次來到 神的面前來回想 神是怎樣按著祂心中的純正和手中的巧妙,來帶領我們這一天的時候,我們的感恩將更加滿溢!也讓我們學習奉耶穌基督的名來對自己及基督身體說信心和盼望的話:『我們要發旺如棕樹,生長如黎巴嫩的香柏樹,到年老的時候仍要結果子,要滿了汁漿而常發青,這是何等蒙福的人生!』

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 06

Thanksgiving Month Introduction...

Psalm 119:57-64
(Memorization Scripture 62-64)
57 You are my portion, O Lord;
I have said that I would keep Your words.
58 I entreated Your favor with my whole heart;
Be merciful to me according to Your word.
59 I thought about my ways,
And turned my feet to Your testimonies.
60 I made haste, and did not delay
To keep Your commandments.
61 The cords of the wicked have bound me,
But I have not forgotten Your law.
62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks to You,
Because of Your righteous judgments.
63 I am a companion of all who fear You,
And of those who keep Your precepts.
64 The earth, O Lord, is full of Your mercy;
Teach me Your statutes.

[Sharing] We give thanks to God for He gives us His word which helps us to know, to turn to and to follow Him. The psalmist rises to give thanks to God merely for receiving His words! How we admire his deep understanding and thirst for God’s words. We experience the blessing and grace of God by following His words. Not only do His words lead our path, but they also set us free from the cords of the wicked. Let us give God thanks for His words, desire His words, be joyful with His words, and obey His commands. And as we do we will find ourselves lost in His immense mercy and love. “If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.” (John 15:10a)


詩篇 119:57-64
57 耶和華是我的福分,我曾說,我要遵守你的言語。
58 我一心求過你的恩,願你照你的話憐憫我。
59 我思想我所行的道,就轉步歸向你的法度。
60 我急忙遵守你的命令,並不遲延。
61 惡人的繩索纏繞我,我卻沒有忘記你的律法。
62 我因你公義的典章,半夜必起來稱謝你。
63 凡敬畏你、守你訓詞的人,我都與他做伴。
64 耶和華啊,你的慈愛遍滿大地,求你將你的律例教訓我。

【心得分享】感謝主,祂把祂的話語賜給我們,叫我們可以認識祂、轉向祂、跟隨祂。 詩人因著 神的話稱謝耶和華,讓我們看見詩人對 神的話有何等的認識和體會。因著遵守 神的話,我們可以經歷耶和華是我們的福分和恩典。祂的話不單指引我們前面的道路,也救我們脫離惡人的繩索。讓我們爲著 神的話稱謝祂,以 神的話爲樂、愛慕 神的話、遵行 神的話,以至於沉浸在主那豐滿的慈愛中。「你们若遵守我的命令,就常在我的愛裡。」(約15:10a)

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 05

Thanksgiving Month Introduction...

Psalm 65:5,9-13
(Memorization Scripture 11-13)
5 By awesome deeds in righteousness You will answer us, O God of our salvation, You who are the confidence of all the ends of the earth, And of the far-off seas;... 9 You visit the earth and water it, You greatly enrich it; The river of God is full of water; You provide their grain, For so You have prepared it.
10 You water its ridges abundantly, You settle its furrows; You make it soft with showers, You bless its growth.
11 You crown the year with Your goodness, And Your paths drip with abundance.
12 They drop on the pastures of the wilderness, And the little hills rejoice on every side.
13 The pastures are clothed with flocks; The valleys also are covered with grain; They shout for joy, they also sing.

[Sharing] Although David’s life is filled with countless persecutions and oppressions, at the same time, he profoundly experienced God’s salvation, preservation and provision. That’s why he can praise God with a heart full of gratitude and say: God our Savior, you are the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas (v. 5)! Looking at nature created by God, the psalmist then vividly portrays God's grace and writes: ``You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance (v. 11).” Going through the pandemic and social unrest in these years, shall we not praise Him more and more for His protection and provision, pursuing our real satisfaction through gaining Christ? When we think of God’s abundant grace on us day in and day out, year after year, we cannot help but accept the invitation of the psalmist - to thank the great God and His abundant supply and blessings together with the rivers, paths, wilderness, meadows, hills, and flocks.


詩篇 65:5,9-13
5 拯救我們的神啊,你必以威嚴秉公義應允我們,你本是一切地極和海上遠處的人所倚靠的。...9 你眷顧地,降下透雨,使地大得肥美;神的河滿了水。你這樣澆灌了地,好為人預備五穀。10 你澆透地的犁溝,潤平犁脊,降甘霖使地軟和,其中發長的蒙你賜福。
11 你以恩典為年歲的冠冕,你的路徑都滴下脂油。
12 滴在曠野的草場上,小山以歡樂束腰,
13 草場以羊群為衣,谷中也長滿了五穀,這一切都歡呼歌唱。

【心得分享】 大衛的一生充滿了無數的逼迫患難。同時,他也非常深刻地經歷了 神親自的拯救、保守和供應。所以,他以感恩的心讚美 神:「祢本是一切地極和海上遠處的人所倚靠的。」(第5節) 接著,詩人環顧 神所創造的大自然,以及 神所賜予的雨水、五穀、牲畜...,便生動地描繪出 神的恩典:「祢以恩典為年歲的冠冕;祢的路徑都滴下脂油。」(第11節) 親愛的弟兄姐妹,經歷了過去幾年來特別的環境與挑戰,我們是否更要感謝祂的保守與供應,都更寶貝祂,並以得著基督為我們真正的滿足?想到 神的恩典在我們身上,日復一日、年復一年,你我是否也忍不住要接受詩人的邀請 —— 與江河、路徑、曠野、草場、小山、羊群等一同來稱謝 神和祂豐盛的供應與眷顧?

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 04

Thanksgiving Month Introduction...

Psalm 8:1-9
(Memorization Scripture 1-4)
1 O Lord, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth,
Who have set Your glory above the heavens!
2 Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants
You have ordained strength,
Because of Your enemies,
That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.
3 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
4 What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him?

5 For You have made him a little lower than the angels,
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.
6 You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,
7 All sheep and oxen—
Even the beasts of the field,
8 The birds of the air,
And the fish of the sea
That pass through the paths of the seas.
9 O Lord, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth!

[Sharing] Praise the Lord for He is our Lord, who is even mindful of us. Though we are unworthy, He even cares for us! God says, “Everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him” (Isaiah 43:7). If we cannot take this to heart, we would not be able to understand why God has entrusted us with ruling over His creation. Furthermore, we would find this unfathomable: that after man gave into Satan’s temptation, God sent His only Son as a man to give His life as ransom so that a new people would be brought forth. The first created man was not able to complete God’s charge, but the last Adam, Jesus Christ, has received honor and glory as His crown (Hebrews 2:9), and all things are under His feet (1 Corinthians 15:27, Ephesians 1:22). Therefore, let’s praise the Lord for His precocious salvation upon us through our faith and thank Him for making Jesus Christ reign over our lives and having restored His glorious plan of mission for us since His creation.


詩篇 8:1-9
1 耶和華我們的主啊,你的名在全地何其美,你將你的榮耀彰顯於天!
2 你因敵人的緣故,從嬰孩和吃奶的口中建立了能力,使仇敵和報仇的閉口無言。
3 我觀看你指頭所造的天,並你所陳設的月亮星宿,
4 便說:「人算什麼,你竟顧念他?世人算什麼,你竟眷顧他?

5 你叫他比天使 微小一點,並賜他榮耀尊貴為冠冕。
6 你派他管理你手所造的,使萬物,就是一切的牛羊,田野的獸,空中的鳥,海裡的魚,凡經行海道的,都服在他的腳下。」 7  8
9 耶和華我們的主啊,你的名在全地何其美!

【心得分享】感謝主!耶和華是「我們的主」,並且祂「竟顧念」我們。是的,我們算什麼, 神竟然這樣眷顧我們! 神說,「凡稱為我名下的人,是我為自己的榮耀創造的,是我所做成,所造作的。」(賽43:7) 我們若看不見這個點,就不能明白為什麼 神賦予我們使命來管理祂所造的;更不能明白為什麼人跟從撒旦的誘惑墮落之後, 神要使祂的獨生子成為人的樣式,捨命完成救贖,開啟了新造的族類!的確,第一個受造的人沒有完成 神的託付。而末後的亞當,耶穌基督,卻得了尊貴、榮耀為冠冕(來2:9),萬有都服在祂腳下(林前15:27,弗1:22)。為此,讓我們寶貝這因信就能從祂蒙受的救恩,也更感謝耶穌基督在我們生命中作王,恢復 神起初就賦予我們的榮耀使命。

Psalm 7:1,3-6,8-11,17
(Memorization Scripture 8-10,17)
1 O Lord my God, in You I put my trust; Save me from all those who persecute me;And deliver me,...3 O Lord my God, if I have done this:
If there is iniquity in my hands,
4 If I have repaid evil to him who was at peace with me, Or have plundered my enemy without cause,
5 Let the enemy pursue me and overtake me;Yes, let him trample my life to the earth, And lay my honor in the dust. Selah
6 Arise, O Lord, in Your anger; Lift Yourself up because of the rage of my enemies; Rise up for me to the judgment You have commanded!...8 The Lord shall judge the peoples;Judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness,
And according to my integrity within me.
9 Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, But establish the just; For the righteous God tests the hearts and minds.
10 My defense is of God, Who saves the upright in heart.

11 God is a just judge, And God is angry with the wicked every day....17 I will praise the Lord according to His righteousness, And will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.

[Sharing]Today, Let’s remember the Lord we worship is the Lord of righteousness. We praise Him for knowing judgment belongs to Him in whatever unfair situations and he is willing to establish the righteous people as always. David comes before the Lord and tells of his sufferings, how his enemies' slander and persecutions are like a lion tearing him apart, with none to deliver. However, even in such difficult circumstances he first asks God to assess his uprightness, to see if there is iniquity in his hands. Only then does he pray to God: "Lift Yourself up because of the rage of my enemies". Furthermore, David praises the Lord for he knows that He judges justly, tests the hearts and minds, and saves the upright in heart. When we encounter malicious slander or harsh criticism, do not forget that our God is a God who judges justly. He is angry with the wicked and saves the upright in heart. Therefore, Paul says in Romans 12:19: "19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, 'Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,' says the Lord."


詩篇 7:1,3-6,8-11,17
1 耶和華我的神啊,我投靠你,求你救我脫離一切追趕我的人,將我救拔出來,...3 耶和華我的神啊,我若行了這事,若有罪孽在我手裡,
4 我若以惡報那與我交好的人(連那無故與我為敵的,我也救了他),
5 就任憑仇敵追趕我,直到追上,將我的性命踏在地下,使我的榮耀歸於灰塵!(細拉)
6 耶和華啊,求你在怒中起來,挺身而立,抵擋我敵人的暴怒;求你為我興起,你已經命定施行審判。...8 耶和華向眾民施行審判。耶和華啊,求你按我的公義和我心中的純正判斷我。
9 願惡人的惡斷絕,願你堅立義人,因為公義的神察驗人的心腸肺腑。
10 神是我的盾牌,他拯救心裡正直的人。

11 神是公義的審判者,又是天天向惡人發怒的神。...17 我要照著耶和華的公義稱謝他,歌頌耶和華至高者的名。

【心得分享】今天讓我們記念我們所信的 神是公義的 神,在我們覺得不平的環境中,因知道審判在祂,祂也建立義人而仍能感謝和讚美!大衛到 神面前陳述自己的苦情,仇敵的譭謗攻擊好像曠野兇惡的獅子要將他撕碎,卻無人搭救他。在艱難的環境中他首先求 神鑑察他的正直,有無罪孽在手裡,然後呼求 神「為我興起」,抵擋仇敵的惡行。不但如此,大衛稱謝耶和華,因為他知道耶和華是按公義向眾民施行審判的 神,祂察驗人的心腸肺腑,拯救心裡正直的人。當我們遭遇惡意的毀謗、無情的批評落在艱難困苦的環境時,不要忘記我們的 神是按公義向眾民施行審判的 神,祂向惡人發怒,卻要堅立義人。所以,保羅說:「親愛的弟兄,不要自己申冤,寧可讓步,聽憑主怒;因為經上記著:『主說:申冤在我,我必報應。』」 (羅12:19)

2 Corinthians 3:2-6
(Memorization Scripture 3,5-6)
2 You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men; 3 clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart.4 And we have such trust through Christ toward God. 5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God, 6 who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

(背誦經文:3, 5-6)
2 你們就是我們的薦信,寫在我們的心裡,被眾人所知道所念誦的。 3 你們明顯是基督的信,藉著我們修成的:不是用墨寫的,乃是用永生神的靈寫的;不是寫在石版上,乃是寫在心版上。 4 我們因基督,所以在神面前才有這樣的信心。 5 並不是我們憑自己能承擔什麼事,我們所能承擔的,乃是出於神。 6 他叫我們能承當這新約的執事,不是憑著字句,乃是憑著精意;因為那字句是叫人死,精意是叫人活。

3 The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying:
“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love;
Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.

O virgin of Israel!
You shall again be adorned with your tambourines,
And shall go forth in the dances of those who rejoice.

The planters shall plant and eat them as ordinary food.

Philippians 2:5-11
(Memorization Scripture 5-8)
5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it [b]robbery to be equal with God, 7 but [c]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.

腓立比書 2:5-11
5 你們當以基督耶穌的心為心。 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。

Isaiah 42:1-9
(Memorization Scripture 1-4,6-7)
1“Behold! My Servant whom I uphold,
My Elect One in whom My soul delights!
I have put My Spirit upon Him;
He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles.
2 He will not cry out, nor raise His voice,
Nor cause His voice to be heard in the street.
3 A bruised reed He will not break,
And smoking flax He will not quench;
He will bring forth justice for truth.
4 He will not fail nor be discouraged,
Till He has established justice in the earth;
And the coastlands shall wait for His law.”

5 Thus says God the Lord,
Who created the heavens and stretched them out,
Who spread forth the earth and that which comes from it,
Who gives breath to the people on it,
And spirit to those who walk on it:
6 “I, the Lord, have called You in righteousness,
And will hold Your hand;
I will keep You and give You as a covenant to the people,
As a light to the Gentiles,
7 To open blind eyes,
To bring out prisoners from the prison,
Those who sit in darkness from the prison house.

8 I am the Lord, that is My name;
And My glory I will not give to another,
Nor My praise to carved images.
9 Behold, the former things have come to pass,
And new things I declare;
Before they spring forth I tell you of them.”

1「看哪,我的僕人,我所扶持、所揀選,心裡所喜悅的,我已將我的靈賜給他,他必將公理傳給外邦。 2 他不喧嚷,不揚聲,也不使街上聽見他的聲音。 3 壓傷的蘆葦他不折斷,將殘的燈火他不吹滅,他憑真實將公理傳開。 4 他不灰心,也不喪膽,直到他在地上設立公理,海島都等候他的訓誨。」
5 創造諸天,鋪張穹蒼,將地和地所出的一併鋪開,賜氣息給地上的眾人,又賜靈性給行在其上之人的神耶和華,他如此說: 6 「我耶和華憑公義召你,必攙扶你的手,保守你,使你做眾民的中保,做外邦人的光, 7 開瞎子的眼,領被囚的出牢獄,領坐黑暗的出監牢。 8 我是耶和華,這是我的名。我必不將我的榮耀歸給假神,也不將我的稱讚歸給雕刻的偶像。 9 看哪,先前的事已經成就,現在我將新事說明,這事未發以先,我就說給你們聽。」

Colossians 3:1-4
(Memorization Scripture:1-4)
1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

1 所以,你們若真與基督一同復活,就當求在上面的事,那裡有基督坐在神的右邊。 2 你們要思念上面的事,不要思念地上的事, 3 因為你們已經死了,你們的生命與基督一同藏在神裡面。 4 基督是我們的生命,他顯現的時候,你們也要與他一同顯現在榮耀裡。

1“Behold, I send My messenger,
And he will prepare the way before Me.
And the Lord, whom you seek,
Will suddenly come to His temple,
Even the Messenger of the covenant,
In whom you delight.
Behold, He is coming,”
Says the Lord of hosts.

2 “But who can endure the day of His coming?
And who can stand when He appears?
For He is like a refiner’s fire
And like launderers’ soap.
3 He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver;

He will purify the sons of Levi,
And purge them as gold and silver,
That they may offer to the Lord
An offering in righteousness.

4 “Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem
Will be pleasant to the Lord,
As in the days of old,
As in former years.

1萬軍之耶和華說:「我要差遣我的使者在我前面預備道路。你們所尋求的主必忽然進入祂的殿,立約的使者,就是你們所仰慕的,快要來到。2 「祂來的日子,誰能當得起呢?祂顯現的時候,誰能立得住呢?因為祂如煉金之人的火,如漂布之人的鹼。 3 祂必坐下如煉淨銀子的,必潔淨利未人,熬煉他們像金銀一樣,他們就憑公義獻供物給耶和華。 4 那時猶大和耶路撒冷所獻的供物必蒙耶和華悅納,彷彿古時之日,上古之年。」

(Memorization Scripture:19, 22b-23 )
16 For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for necessity is laid upon me; yes, woe is me if I do not preach the gospel! 17 For if I do this willingly, I have a reward; but if against my will, I have been entrusted with a stewardship. 18 What is my reward then? That when I preach the gospel, I may present the gospel of Christ without charge, that I may not abuse my authority in the gospel.19 For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win the more;

……I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. 23 Now this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I may be partaker of it with you.

哥林多前書9:16-19, 22b-23

16 我傳福音原沒有可誇的,因為我是不得已的;若不傳福音,我便有禍了。 17 我若甘心做這事,就有賞賜;若不甘心,責任卻已經託付我了。 18 既是這樣,我的賞賜是什麼呢?就是我傳福音的時候,叫人不花錢得福音,免得用盡我傳福音的權柄。 19 我雖是自由的,無人轄管,然而我甘心做了眾人的僕人,為要多得人。

……向什麼樣的人,我就做什麼樣的人,無論如何總要救些人。 23 凡我所行的,都是為福音的緣故,為要與人同得這福音的好處。

8 “For I, the Lord, love justice;
I hate robbery for burnt offering;
I will direct their work in truth,
And will make with them an everlasting covenant.
9 Their descendants shall be known among the Gentiles,
And their offspring among the people.
All who see them shall acknowledge them,
That they are the posterity whom the Lord has blessed.”
10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
My soul shall be joyful in my God;
For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation,
He has covered me with the robe of righteousness,
As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments,
And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

11 For as the earth brings forth its bud,
As the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth,
So the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.

8 「因為我耶和華喜愛公平,恨惡搶奪和罪孽。我要憑誠實施行報應,並要與我的百姓立永約。 9 他們的後裔必在列國中被人認識,他們的子孫在眾民中也是如此,凡看見他們的必認他們是耶和華賜福的後裔。」
10 「我因耶和華大大歡喜,我的心靠神快樂。因他以拯救為衣給我穿上,以公義為袍給我披上,好像新郎戴上華冠,又像新婦佩戴裝飾。 11 田地怎樣使百穀發芽,園子怎樣使所種的發生,主耶和華必照樣使公義和讚美在萬民中發出。」

Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days.

10 More to be desired are they than gold,
Yea, than much fine gold;
Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11 Moreover by them Your servant is warned,
And in keeping them there is great reward.

12 Who can understand his errors?
Cleanse me from secret faults.
13 Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins;
Let them not have dominion over me.

Luke 8:11-15
(Memorization Scripture 15)
11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. 12 Those by the wayside are the ones who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. 13 But the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, who believe for a while and in time of temptation fall away. 14 Now the ones that fell among thorns are those who, when they have heard, go out and are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to maturity. 15 But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience.

路加福音 8:11-15
11 這比喻乃是這樣:種子就是神的道。 12 那些在路旁的,就是人聽了道,隨後魔鬼來,從他們心裡把道奪去,恐怕他們信了得救。13 那些在磐石上的,就是人聽道,歡喜領受,但心中沒有根,不過暫時相信,及至遇見試煉就退後了。 14 那落在荊棘裡的,就是人聽了道,走開以後,被今生的思慮、錢財、宴樂擠住了,便結不出成熟的子粒來。 15 那落在好土裡的,就是人聽了道,持守在誠實善良的心裡,並且忍耐著結實。

(Memorization Scripture 13,17-18)
13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter envy and [h]self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. 15 This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. 16 For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. 18 Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

13 你們中間誰是有智慧、有見識的呢?他就當在智慧的溫柔上顯出他的善行來。 14 你們心裡若懷著苦毒的嫉妒和紛爭,就不可自誇,也不可說謊話抵擋真道。 15 這樣的智慧不是從上頭來的,乃是屬地的,屬情慾的,屬鬼魔的。 16 在何處有嫉妒、紛爭,就在何處有擾亂和各樣的壞事。 17 唯獨從上頭來的智慧,先是清潔,後是和平、溫良、柔順、滿有憐憫、多結善果、沒有偏見、沒有假冒; 18 並且使人和平的,是用和平所栽種的義果。

That we may rejoice and be glad all our days!
15 Make us glad according to the days in which You have afflicted us,
The years in which we have seen evil.
16 Let Your work appear to Your servants,
And Your glory to their children.
17 And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us,
And establish the work of our hands for us;
Yes, establish the work of our hands.

詩篇 90:10-17
10 我們一生的年日是七十歲,若是強壯可到八十歲,但其中所矜誇的不過是勞苦愁煩;轉眼成空,我們便如飛而去。
11 誰曉得你怒氣的權勢?誰按著你該受的敬畏曉得你的憤怒呢?
12 求你指教我們怎樣數算自己的日子,好叫我們得著智慧的心。
13 耶和華啊,我們要等到幾時呢?求你轉回,為你的僕人後悔。
14 求你使我們早早飽得你的慈愛,好叫我們一生一世歡呼喜樂。
15 求你照著你使我們受苦的日子和我們遭難的年歲,叫我們喜樂。
16 願你的作為向你僕人顯現,願你的榮耀向他們子孫顯明。
17 願主我們神的榮美歸於我們身上,願你堅立我們手所做的工——我們手所做的工,願你堅立!

Revelation 12:10-11
(Memorization Scripture 10-11)
10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death."

Isaiah 64:8-12
(Memorization Scripture 8-9)
8 But now, O Lord,
You are our Father;
We are the clay, and You our potter;
And all we are the work of Your hand.
9 Do not be furious, O Lord,
Nor remember iniquity forever;
Indeed, please look—we all are Your people!
10 Your holy cities are a wilderness,
Zion is a wilderness,
Jerusalem a desolation.

11 Our holy and beautiful temple,
Where our fathers praised You,
Is burned up with fire;
And all our pleasant things are laid waste.
12 Will You restrain Yourself because of these things, O Lord?
Will You hold Your peace, and afflict us very severely?

8 耶和華啊,現在你仍是我們的父!我們是泥,你是窯匠,我們都是你手的工作。 9 耶和華啊,求你不要大發震怒,也不要永遠記念罪孽;求你垂顧我們,我們都是你的百姓。 10 你的聖邑變為曠野,錫安變為曠野,耶路撒冷成為荒場。 11 我們聖潔華美的殿,就是我們列祖讚美你的所在,被火焚燒;我們所羨慕的美地,盡都荒廢。 12 耶和華啊,有這些事,你還忍得住嗎?你仍靜默,使我們深受苦難嗎?

(Memorization Scripture:12-13,15-16)
12 Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 13 Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. 14 Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. 15 Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all. 16 Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.

O Israel, you will not be forgotten by Me!
22 I have blotted out, like a thick cloud, your transgressions,
And like a cloud, your sins.
Return to Me, for I have redeemed you.”

23 Sing, O heavens, for the Lord has done it!
Shout, you lower parts of the earth;
Break forth into singing, you mountains,
O forest, and every tree in it!
For the Lord has redeemed Jacob,
And glorified Himself in Israel.

2 Corinthians 5:6-10
(Memorization Scripture:9-10)
6 So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. 7 For we walk by faith, not by sight. 8 We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.9 Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.

6 所以,我們時常坦然無懼,並且曉得我們住在身內,便與主相離; 7 因我們行事為人是憑著信心,不是憑著眼見。 8 我們坦然無懼,是更願意離開身體與主同住。9 所以,無論是住在身內、離開身外,我們立了志向,要得主的喜悅。 10 因為我們眾人必要在基督臺前顯露出來,叫各人按著本身所行的,或善或惡受報。

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell,

Let them return to you,
But you must not return to them.

And they will fight against you,
But they shall not prevail against you;
For I am with you to save you
And deliver you,” says the Lord.

耶利米書15:16, 19-20

‘These things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword: 13 “I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells. 14 But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality. 15 Thus you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. 16 Repent, or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.
17 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.” ’

啟示錄 2:12-17

1 John 1:3,5-9
(Memorization Scripture:5-9)
3 that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.

5 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

約翰一書1:3, 5-9
3 我們將所看見、所聽見的傳給你們,使你們與我們相交;我們乃是與父並他兒子耶穌基督相交的。
5 神就是光,在他毫無黑暗,這是我們從主所聽見又報給你們的信息。 6 我們若說是與神相交,卻仍在黑暗裡行,就是說謊話,不行真理了。 7 我們若在光明中行,如同神在光明中,就彼此相交,他兒子耶穌的血也洗淨我們一切的罪。 8 我們若說自己無罪,便是自欺,真理不在我們心裡了。 9 我們若認自己的罪,神是信實的,是公義的,必要赦免我們的罪,洗淨我們一切的不義。

12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. 13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. 14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

希伯來書 5:12-14
12 看你們學習的工夫,本該做師傅,誰知還得有人將神聖言小學的開端另教導你們,並且成了那必須吃奶、不能吃乾糧的人! 13 凡只能吃奶的,都不熟練仁義的道理,因為他是嬰孩。 14 唯獨長大成人的才能吃乾糧,他們的心竅習練得通達,就能分辨好歹了。

17 There I will make the horn of David grow;
I will prepare a lamp for My Anointed.
18 His enemies I will clothe with shame,
But upon Himself His crown shall flourish.”

Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh? 4 Have you suffered so many things in vain—if indeed it was in vain?

But the redeemed shall walk there,

And come to Zion with singing,
With everlasting joy on their heads.
They shall obtain joy and gladness,
And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

1 Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous!
For praise from the upright is beautiful.
2 Praise the Lord with the harp;
Make melody to Him with an instrument of ten strings.
3 Sing to Him a new song;
Play skillfully with a shout of joy.

4 For the word of the Lord is right,
And all His work is done in truth.
5 He loves righteousness and justice;
The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.

6 By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.
7 He gathers the waters of the sea together [b]as a heap;
He lays up the deep in storehouses.

8 Let all the earth fear the Lord;
Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
9 For He spoke, and it was done;
He commanded, and it stood fast.

10 The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing;
He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect.
11 The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
The plans of His heart to all generations.
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.

1 義人哪,你們應當靠耶和華歡樂!正直人的讚美是合宜的。
2 你們應當彈琴稱謝耶和華,用十弦瑟歌頌他。

4 因為耶和華的言語正直,凡他所做的盡都誠實。
5 他喜愛仁義、公平,遍地滿了耶和華的慈愛。
6 諸天藉耶和華的命而造,萬象藉他口中的氣而成。
7 他聚集海水如壘,收藏深洋在庫房。
8 願全地都敬畏耶和華,願世上的居民都懼怕他。
9 因為他說有,就有;命立,就立。
10 耶和華使列國的籌算歸於無有,使眾民的思念無有功效。
11 耶和華的籌算永遠立定,他心中的思念萬代常存。
12 以耶和華為神的,那國是有福的!他所揀選為自己產業的,那民是有福的!

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. 11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,

And bear them up forever.

6 耶和華是應當稱頌的!因為他聽了我懇求的聲音。
7 耶和華是我的力量,是我的盾牌,我心裡倚靠他,就得幫助。所以我心中歡樂,我必用詩歌頌讚他。
8 耶和華是他百姓的力量,又是他受膏者得救的保障。
9 求你拯救你的百姓,賜福給你的產業,牧養他們,扶持他們,直到永遠。

Ephesians 4:11-16
(Memorization Scripture 11-13,15-16)
11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

(背誦經文:11-13, 15-16)
11 他所賜的有使徒,有先知,有傳福音的,有牧師和教師, 12 為要成全聖徒,各盡其職,建立基督的身體, 13 直等到我們眾人在真道上同歸於一,認識神的兒子,得以長大成人,滿有基督長成的身量, 14 使我們不再做小孩子,中了人的詭計和欺騙的法術,被一切異教之風搖動飄來飄去,就隨從各樣的異端, 15 唯用愛心說誠實話,凡事長進,連於元首基督。 16 全身都靠他聯絡得合式,百節各按各職,照著各體的功用彼此相助,便叫身體漸漸增長,在愛中建立自己。

Isaiah 35:3-10
(Memorization Scripture 8-10)
3 Strengthen the [c]weak hands,
And make firm the [d]feeble knees.
4 Say to those who are fearful-hearted,
“Be strong, do not fear!
Behold, your God will come with vengeance,
With the recompense of God;
He will come and save you.”

5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened,
And the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6 Then the lame shall leap like a deer,
And the tongue of the dumb sing.
For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness,
And streams in the desert.
7 The parched ground shall become a pool,
And the thirsty land springs of water;
In the habitation of jackals, where each lay,
There shall be grass with reeds and rushes.

8 A highway shall be there, and a road,
And it shall be called the Highway of Holiness.
The unclean shall not pass over it,
But it shall be for others.
Whoever walks the road, although a fool,
Shall not go astray.
9 No lion shall be there,
Nor shall any ravenous beast go up on it;
It shall not be found there.
But the redeemed shall walk there,
10 And the ransomed of the Lord shall return,
And come to Zion with singing,
With everlasting joy on their heads.
They shall obtain joy and gladness,
And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

以賽亞書 35:3-10
3 你們要使軟弱的手堅壯,無力的膝穩固, 4 對膽怯的人說:「你們要剛強,不要懼怕!看哪,你們的神必來報仇,必來施行極大的報應,他必來拯救你們。」

5 那時瞎子的眼必睜開,聾子的耳必開通。 6 那時瘸子必跳躍像鹿,啞巴的舌頭必能歌唱。在曠野必有水發出,在沙漠必有河湧流。 7 發光的沙要變為水池,乾渴之地要變為泉源。在野狗躺臥之處,必有青草、蘆葦和蒲草。 8 在那裡必有一條大道,稱為「聖路」。汙穢人不得經過,必專為贖民行走,行路的人雖愚昧也不致失迷。 9 在那裡必沒有獅子,猛獸也不登這路,在那裡都遇不見,只有贖民在那裡行走。 10 並且耶和華救贖的民必歸回,歌唱來到錫安,永樂必歸到他們的頭上。他們必得著歡喜快樂,憂愁嘆息盡都逃避。

Daily Scripture - Sep 18

Hebrews 2:10-13
(Memorization Scripture10-11 )
10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 11 For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12 saying:

“I will declare Your name to My brethren;
In the midst of the assembly I will sing praise to You.”

13 And again:

“I will put My trust in Him.”

And again:

“Here am I and the children whom God has given Me.”

10 原來那為萬物所屬、為萬物所本的,要領許多的兒子進榮耀裡去,使救他們的元帥因受苦難得以完全,本是合宜的。 11 因那使人成聖的和那些得以成聖的,都是出於一,所以他稱他們為弟兄也不以為恥, 12 說:「我要將你的名傳於我的弟兄,在會中我要頌揚你。」 13 又說:「我要依賴他。」又說:「看哪,我與神所給我的兒女。」

John 12:24-26
(Memorization Scripture 24, 26)
24 Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much [a]grain. 25 He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26 If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.

約翰福音 12:24-26
(背誦經文:24, 26)
24 我實實在在地告訴你們,一粒麥子不落在地裏死了,仍舊是一粒,若是死了,就結出許多子粒來。 25 愛惜自己生命的,就失喪生命;在這世上恨惡自己生命的,就要保守生命到永生。 26 若有人服事我,就當跟從我;我在哪裏,服事我的人也要在那裏;若有人服事我,我父必尊重他。

Philippians 1:3-6
(Memorization Scripture 5-6)
3 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, 4 always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, 5 for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;

腓立比書 1:3-6
3 我每逢想念你們,就感謝我的神; 4 每逢為你們眾人祈求的時候,常是歡歡喜喜地祈求。 5 因為從頭一天直到如今,你們是同心合意地興旺福音。 6 我深信那在你們心裡動了善工的必成全這工,直到耶穌基督的日子。

Revelation 21:1-5
(Memorization Scripture3-4)
1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”

1 我又看見一個新天新地,因為先前的天地已經過去了,海也不再有了。 2 我又看見聖城新耶路撒冷由神那裡從天而降,預備好了,就如新婦裝飾整齊等候丈夫。3 我聽見有大聲音從寶座出來說:「看哪,神的帳幕在人間!他要與人同住,他們要做祂的子民,神要親自與他們同在,做他們的神。 4 神要擦去他們一切的眼淚,不再有死亡,也不再有悲哀、哭號、疼痛,因為以前的事都過去了。」 5 坐寶座的說:「看哪,我將一切都更新了!」又說:「你要寫上,因這些話是可信的,是真實的。」

1 John 3:1-3
(Memorization Scripture 1)
1 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. 3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

1你看父賜給我們是何等的慈愛,使我們得稱為神的兒女,我們也真是他的兒女!世人所以不認識我們,是因未曾認識他。 2 親愛的弟兄啊,我們現在是神的兒女,將來如何,還未顯明。但我們知道,主若顯現,我們必要像他,因為必得見他的真體。 3 凡向他有這指望的,就潔淨自己,像他潔淨一樣。

Isaiah 6:6-8
(Memorization Scripture 8)
6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. 7 And he touched my mouth with it, and said:
“Behold, this has touched your lips;
Your iniquity is taken away,
And your sin purged.”
8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying:
“Whom shall I send,
And who will go for Us?”
Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

以賽亞書 6:6-8
6 有一撒拉弗飛到我跟前,手裡拿著紅炭,是用火剪從壇上取下來的, 7 將炭沾我的口,說:「看哪,這炭沾了你的嘴,你的罪孽便除掉,你的罪惡就赦免了。」 8 我又聽見主的聲音說:「我可以差遣誰呢?誰肯為我們去呢?」我說:「我在這裡,請差遣我!」

2 Corinthians 4:16-18
(Memorization Scripture 16-18)
16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

16 所以我們不喪膽,外體雖然毀壞,內心卻一天新似一天。 17 我們這至暫至輕的苦楚,要為我們成就極重無比、永遠的榮耀。 18 原來我們不是顧念所見的,乃是顧念所不見的,因為所見的是暫時的,所不見的是永遠的。

Isaiah 59:1-4
(Memorization Scripture 1-2)
1 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened,
That it cannot save;
Nor His ear heavy,
That it cannot hear.
2 But your iniquities have separated you from your God;
And your sins have hidden His face from you,
So that He will not hear.

3 For your hands are defiled with [a]blood,
And your fingers with iniquity;
Your lips have spoken lies,
Your tongue has muttered perversity.
4 No one calls for justice,
Nor does any plead for truth.
They trust in empty words and speak lies;
They conceive [b]evil and bring forth iniquity.

1耶和華的膀臂並非縮短不能拯救,耳朵並非發沉不能聽見; 2 但你們的罪孽使你們與神隔絕,你們的罪惡使他掩面不聽你們。 3 因你們的手被血沾染,你們的指頭被罪孽沾汙,你們的嘴唇說謊言,你們的舌頭出惡語。 4 無一人按公義告狀,無一人憑誠實辯白,都倚靠虛妄,說謊言,所懷的是毒害,所生的是罪孽。

(Memorization Scripture 35-36)
35 So it was, whenever the ark set out, that Moses said:

“Rise up, O Lord!
Let Your enemies be scattered,
And let those who hate You flee before You.”

36 And when it rested, he said:

“Return, O Lord,
To the many thousands of Israel.”

35 約櫃往前行的時候,摩西就說:「耶和華啊,求你興起!願你的仇敵四散,願恨你的人從你面前逃跑!」 36 約櫃停住的時候,他就說:「耶和華啊,求你回到以色列的千萬人中!」

Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

約翰福音 14:26-27
26 但保惠師,就是父因我的名所要差來的聖靈,他要將一切的事指教你們,並且要叫你們想起我對你們所說的一切話。 27 我留下平安給你們,我將我的平安賜給你們。我所賜的不像世人所賜的,你們心裡不要憂愁,也不要膽怯。

Proverbs 3:1-12
(Memorization Scripture: 5-6,11-12)
1 My son, do not forget my law,
But let your heart keep my commands;
2 For length of days and long life
And peace they will add to you.

3 Let not mercy and truth forsake you;
Bind them around your neck,
Write them on the tablet of your heart,
4 And so find favor and [a]high esteem
In the sight of God and man.

5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall [b]direct your paths.

7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and depart from evil.
8 It will be health to your [c]flesh,
And strength[d] to your bones.

9 Honor the Lord with your possessions,
And with the firstfruits of all your increase;
10 So your barns will be filled with plenty,
And your vats will overflow with new wine.

11 My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord,
Nor detest His correction;
12 For whom the Lord loves He corrects,
Just as a father the son in whom he delights.

箴言 3:1-12
我兒,不要忘記我的法則,你心要謹守我的誡命, 2 因為他必將長久的日子、生命的年數與平安加給你。 3 不可使慈愛、誠實離開你,要繫在你頸項上,刻在你心版上。 4 這樣,你必在神和世人眼前蒙恩寵,有聰明。 5 你要專心仰賴耶和華,不可倚靠自己的聰明, 6 在你一切所行的事上都要認定他,他必指引你的路。 7 不要自以為有智慧,要敬畏耶和華,遠離惡事。 8 這便醫治你的肚臍,滋潤你的百骨。 9 你要以財物和一切初熟的土產尊榮耶和華, 10 這樣,你的倉房必充滿有餘,你的酒榨有新酒盈溢。 11 我兒,你不可輕看耶和華的管教,也不可厭煩他的責備。 12 因為耶和華所愛的,他必責備,正如父親責備所喜愛的兒子。

25 Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. 26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. 28 Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God. 29 I will deliver you from all your uncleannesses. I will call for the grain and multiply it, and bring no famine upon you.

25 我必用清水灑在你們身上,你們就潔淨了。我要潔淨你們,使你們脫離一切的污穢,棄掉一切的偶像。 26 我也要賜給你們一個新心,將新靈放在你們裏面,又從你們的肉體中除掉石心,賜給你們肉心。 27 我必將我的靈放在你們裏面,使你們順從我的律例,謹守遵行我的典章。 28 你們必住在我所賜給你們列祖之地。你們要作我的子民,我要作你們的 神。 29 我必救你們脫離一切的污穢,也必命五穀豐登,不使你們遭遇饑荒。

John 15:1-8
(Memorization Scripture 5-8)
1 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. 8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.

1「我是真葡萄樹,我父是栽培的人。 2 凡屬我不結果子的枝子,他就剪去;凡結果子的,他就修理乾淨,使枝子結果子更多。 3 現在你們因我講給你們的道,已經乾淨了。 4 你們要常在我裡面,我也常在你們裡面。枝子若不常在葡萄樹上,自己就不能結果子;你們若不常在我裡面,也是這樣。 5 我是葡萄樹,你們是枝子。常在我裡面的,我也常在他裡面,這人就多結果子;因為離了我,你們就不能做什麼。 6 人若不常在我裡面,就像枝子丟在外面枯乾,人拾起來扔在火裡燒了。 7 你們若常在我裡面,我的話也常在你們裡面,凡你們所願意的,祈求,就給你們成就。 8 你們多結果子,我父就因此得榮耀,你們也就是我的門徒了。
