Opening Music

1st Scripture

Psalm 100:1-5 (NLT) ; 詩 篇 100:1-5 (CUVS)

Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth!
    Worship the Lord with gladness.
    Come before him, singing with joy.
Acknowledge that the Lord is God!
    He made us, and we are his.
    We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
    go into his courts with praise.
    Give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good.
    His unfailing love continues forever,
    and his faithfulness continues to each generation.

100 ( 称 谢 诗 。 ) 普 天 下 当 向 耶 和 华 欢 呼 !

你 们 当 乐 意 事 奉 耶 和 华 , 当 来 向 他 歌 唱 !

你 们 当 晓 得 耶 和 华 是 神 ! 我 们 是 他 造 的 , 也 是 属 他 的 ; 我 们 是 他 的 民 , 也 是 他 草 场 的 羊 。

当 称 谢 进 入 他 的 门 ; 当 赞 美 进 入 他 的 院 。 当 感 谢 他 , 称 颂 他 的 名 !

因 为 耶 和 华 本 为 善 。 他 的 慈 爱 存 到 永 远 ; 他 的 信 实 直 到 万 代 。

Worship Songs

2nd Scripture

Deuteronomy 32:43-47 (NLT) ; 申 命 記 32:43-47 (CUVS)

43 “Rejoice with him, you heavens,
    and let all of God’s angels worship him.
Rejoice with his people, you Gentiles,
    and let all the angels be strengthened in him.
For he will avenge the blood of his children;
    he will take revenge against his enemies.
He will repay those who hate him
    and cleanse his people’s land.”

44 So Moses came with Joshua son of Nun and recited all the words of this song to the people.

45 When Moses had finished reciting all these words to the people of Israel, 46 he added: “Take to heart all the words of warning I have given you today. Pass them on as a command to your children so they will obey every word of these instructions. 47 These instructions are not empty words—they are your life! By obeying them you will enjoy a long life in the land you will occupy when you cross the Jordan River.”

43 你 们 外 邦 人 当 与 主 的 百 姓 一 同 欢 呼 ; 因 他 要 伸 他 仆 人 流 血 的 冤 , 报 应 他 的 敌 人 , 洁 净 他 的 地 , 救 赎 他 的 百 姓 。

44 摩 西 和 嫩 的 儿 子 约 书 亚 去 将 这 歌 的 一 切 话 说 给 百 姓 听 。

45 摩 西 向 以 色 列 众 人 说 完 了 这 一 切 的 话 ,

46 又 说 : 我 今 日 所 警 教 你 们 的 , 你 们 都 要 放 在 心 上 ; 要 吩 咐 你 们 的 子 孙 谨 守 遵 行 这 律 法 上 的 话 。

47 因 为 这 不 是 虚 空 、 与 你 们 无 关 的 事 , 乃 是 你 们 的 生 命 ; 在 你 们 过 约 但 河 要 得 为 业 的 地 上 必 因 这 事 日 子 得 以 长 久 。

Song of Worship

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

1 Peter 2:9-12 (NLT) ; 彼 得 前 書 2:9-12 (CUVS)

But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.

10 “Once you had no identity as a people;
    now you are God’s people.
Once you received no mercy;
    now you have received God’s mercy.”

11 Dear friends, I warn you as “temporary residents and foreigners” to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against your very souls. 12 Be careful to live properly among your unbelieving neighbors. Then even if they accuse you of doing wrong, they will see your honorable behavior, and they will give honor to God when he judges the world.

惟 有 你 们 是 被 拣 选 的 族 类 , 是 有 君 尊 的 祭 司 , 是 圣 洁 的 国 度 , 是 属 神 的 子 民 , 要 叫 你 们 宣 扬 那 召 你 们 出 黑 暗 入 奇 妙 光 明 者 的 美 德 。

10 你 们 从 前 算 不 得 子 民 , 现 在 却 作 了 神 的 子 民 ; 从 前 未 曾 蒙 怜 恤 , 现 在 却 蒙 了 怜 恤 。

11 亲 爱 的 弟 兄 阿 , 你 们 是 客 旅 , 是 寄 居 的 。 我 劝 你 们 要 禁 戒 肉 体 的 私 欲 ; 这 私 欲 是 与 灵 魂 争 战 的 。

12 你 们 在 外 邦 人 中 , 应 当 品 行 端 正 , 叫 那 些 毁 谤 你 们 是 作 恶 的 , 因 看 见 你 们 的 好 行 为 , 便 在 鉴 察 ( 或 作 : 眷 顾 ) 的 日 子 归 荣 耀 给 神 。

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)
