Opening Music

1st Scripture

Psalm 98:1-9 (NLT) ; 詩 篇 98:1-9 (CUVS)

Sing a new song to the Lord,
    for he has done wonderful deeds.
His right hand has won a mighty victory;
    his holy arm has shown his saving power!
The Lord has announced his victory
    and has revealed his righteousness to every nation!
He has remembered his promise to love and be faithful to Israel.
    The ends of the earth have seen the victory of our God.

Shout to the Lord, all the earth;
    break out in praise and sing for joy!
Sing your praise to the Lord with the harp,
    with the harp and melodious song,
with trumpets and the sound of the ram’s horn.
    Make a joyful symphony before the Lord, the King!

Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise!
    Let the earth and all living things join in.
Let the rivers clap their hands in glee!
    Let the hills sing out their songs of joy
before the Lord,
    for he is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with justice,
    and the nations with fairness.

98 ( 一 篇 诗 。 ) 你 们 要 向 耶 和 华 唱 新 歌 ! 因 为 他 行 过 奇 妙 的 事 ; 他 的 右 手 和 圣 臂 施 行 救 恩 。

耶 和 华 发 明 了 他 的 救 恩 , 在 列 邦 人 眼 前 显 出 公 义 ;

记 念 他 向 以 色 列 家 所 发 的 慈 爱 , 所 凭 的 信 实 。 地 的 四 极 都 看 见 我 们 神 的 救 恩 。

全 地 都 要 向 耶 和 华 欢 乐 ; 要 发 起 大 声 , 欢 呼 歌 颂 !

要 用 琴 歌 颂 耶 和 华 , 用 琴 和 诗 歌 的 声 音 歌 颂 他 !

用 号 和 角 声 , 在 大 君 王 耶 和 华 面 前 欢 呼 !

愿 海 和 其 中 所 充 满 的 澎 湃 ; 世 界 和 住 在 其 间 的 也 要 发 声 。

愿 大 水 拍 手 ; 愿 诸 山 在 耶 和 华 面 前 一 同 欢 呼 ;

因 为 他 来 要 审 判 遍 地 。 他 要 按 公 义 审 判 世 界 , 按 公 正 审 判 万 民 。

Worship Songs

2nd Scripture

Luke 24:44-48 (NLT) ; 路 加 福 音 24:44-48 (CUVS)

44 Then he said, “When I was with you before, I told you that everything written about me in the law of Moses and the prophets and in the Psalms must be fulfilled.” 45 Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures. 46 And he said, “Yes, it was written long ago that the Messiah would suffer and die and rise from the dead on the third day. 47 It was also written that this message would be proclaimed in the authority of his name to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: ‘There is forgiveness of sins for all who repent.’ 48 You are witnesses of all these things.

44 耶 稣 对 他 们 说 : 这 就 是 我 从 前 与 你 们 同 在 之 时 所 告 诉 你 们 的 话 说 : 摩 西 的 律 法 、 先 知 的 书 , 和 诗 篇 上 所 记 的 , 凡 指 着 我 的 话 都 必 须 应 验 。

45 於 是 耶 稣 开 他 们 的 心 窍 , 使 他 们 能 明 白 圣 经 ,

46 又 对 他 们 说 : 照 经 上 所 写 的 , 基 督 必 受 害 , 第 三 日 从 死 里 复 活 ,

47 并 且 人 要 奉 他 的 名 传 悔 改 、 赦 罪 的 道 , 从 耶 路 撒 冷 起 直 传 到 万 邦 。

48 你 们 就 是 这 些 事 的 见 证 。

Prayer for our World

From January 9 to February 20, our church is participating in the Canadian Baptists of Western Canada’s collective prayer initiative called “Orienting to God”. We will pray together to listen to God’s voice,
to discern, and to create space for His Spirit to lead us.

Each week we will read Scripture together, watch a short video, and pray one part of the Lord’s prayer. If you sense God speaking to you and wish to pass it on, please email the church office.

Use the side arrows to navigate through the two sets of slides below.

Find our regular CBM Prayerline here. If you like, take time now to send your own praises, thanks and concerns to the Lord.

Song of Worship

3rd Scripture

Acts 17:22-31 (NLT) ; 使 徒 行 傳 17:22-31 (CUVS)

22 So Paul, standing before the council, addressed them as follows: “Men of Athens, I notice that you are very religious in every way, 23 for as I was walking along I saw your many shrines. And one of your altars had this inscription on it: ‘To an Unknown God.’ This God, whom you worship without knowing, is the one I’m telling you about.

24 “He is the God who made the world and everything in it. Since he is Lord of heaven and earth, he doesn’t live in man-made temples, 25 and human hands can’t serve his needs—for he has no needs. He himself gives life and breath to everything, and he satisfies every need. 26 From one man he created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and he determined their boundaries.

27 “His purpose was for the nations to seek after God and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him—though he is not far from any one of us. 28 For in him we live and move and exist. As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’ 29 And since this is true, we shouldn’t think of God as an idol designed by craftsmen from gold or silver or stone.

30 “God overlooked people’s ignorance about these things in earlier times, but now he commands everyone everywhere to repent of their sins and turn to him. 31 For he has set a day for judging the world with justice by the man he has appointed, and he proved to everyone who this is by raising him from the dead.”

Sermon

“God’s Mission” by Pastor Ryan Emmons

Song of Response

Benediction

May you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. 19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
~ Ephesians 3:18-19

18 能 以 和 众 圣 徒 一 同 明 白 基 督 的 爱 是 何 等 长 阔 高 深 ,

19 并 知 道 这 爱 是 过 於 人 所 能 测 度 的 , 便 叫 神 一 切 所 充 满 的 , 充 满 了 你 们 。

~ 以 弗 所 書 3:17-19 (CUVS)
