Prelude

Opening Worship Song(s)

1st Scripture

Psalm 89:1-2, 5-8 (NLT) ; 腓 立 比 書 89:1-2, 5-8 (CUVS)

89 I will sing of the Lord’s unfailing love forever!
    Young and old will hear of your faithfulness.
Your unfailing love will last forever.
    Your faithfulness is as enduring as the heavens.

All heaven will praise your great wonders, Lord;
    myriads of angels will praise you for your faithfulness.
For who in all of heaven can compare with the Lord?
    What mightiest angel is anything like the Lord?
The highest angelic powers stand in awe of God.
    He is far more awesome than all who surround his throne.
O Lord God of Heaven’s Armies!
    Where is there anyone as mighty as you, O Lord?
    You are entirely faithful.

89 ( 以 斯 拉 人 以 探 的 训 诲 诗 。 ) 我 要 歌 唱 耶 和 华 的 慈 爱 , 直 到 永 远 ; 我 要 用 口 将 你 的 信 实 传 与 万 代 。

因 我 曾 说 : 你 的 慈 悲 必 建 立 到 永 远 ; 你 的 信 实 必 坚 立 在 天 上 。

耶 和 华 啊 , 诸 天 要 称 赞 你 的 奇 事 ; 在 圣 者 的 会 中 , 要 称 赞 你 的 信 实 。

在 天 空 谁 能 比 耶 和 华 呢 ? 神 的 众 子 中 , 谁 能 像 耶 和 华 呢 ?

他 在 圣 者 的 会 中 , 是 大 有 威 严 的 神 , 比 一 切 在 他 四 围 的 更 可 畏 惧 。

耶 和 华 ─ 万 军 之 神 啊 , 哪 一 个 大 能 者 像 你 耶 和 华 ? 你 的 信 实 是 在 你 的 四 围 。

Song(s) of Worship

Time for Quiet and Reflection

2nd Scripture

1 John 5:11-14 (NLT) ; 約 翰 一 書 5:11-14 (CUVS)

11 And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life.

13 I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life. 14 And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him.

11 这 见 证 就 是 神 赐 给 我 们 永 生 ; 这 永 生 也 是 在 他 儿 子 里 面 。

12 人 有 了 神 的 儿 子 就 有 生 命 , 没 有 神 的 儿 子 就 没 有 生 命 。

13 我 将 这 些 话 写 给 你 们 信 奉 神 儿 子 之 名 的 人 , 要 叫 你 们 知 道 自 己 有 永 生 。

14 我 们 若 照 他 的 旨 意 求 甚 麽 , 他 就 听 我 们 , 这 是 我 们 向 他 所 存 坦 然 无 惧 的 心 。

Worship Song

3rd Scripture

Romans 5:18-21 (NLT) ; 羅 馬 書 5:18-21 (CUVS)

18 Yes, Adam’s one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ’s one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone. 19 Because one person disobeyed God, many became sinners. But because one other person obeyed God, many will be made righteous.

20 God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. 21 So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

18 如 此 说 来 , 因 一 次 的 过 犯 , 众 人 都 被 定 罪 ; 照 样 , 因 一 次 的 义 行 , 众 人 也 就 被 称 义 得 生 命 了 。

19 因 一 人 的 悖 逆 , 众 人 成 为 罪 人 ; 照 样 , 因 一 人 的 顺 从 , 众 人 也 成 为 义 了 。

20 律 法 本 是 外 添 的 , 叫 过 犯 显 多 ; 只 是 罪 在 那 里 显 多 , 恩 典 就 更 显 多 了 。

21 就 如 罪 作 王 叫 人 死 ; 照 样 , 恩 典 也 藉 着 义 作 王 , 叫 人 因 我 们 的 主 耶 稣 基 督 得 永 生 。

Sermon

Today’s sermon is “Children of God” by Pastor Alinani Sikalangwe. Unfortunately, the recording didn’t work. If you would like to hear the sermon, email the office for the link to our private livestream. You can find past sermons on the Sermons page.

Prayer for the World

Today’s Canadian Baptist Ministries prayer is from Brenda Halk, Senior Associate for Strategic Projects. Here she introduces prayer for workers of all kinds. She says “May the work of our hands and heads and hearts reflect God in all we do.” She has also provided a list of prayer items for various types of workers. Take time after looking at these to send your own praises, thanks, and concerns to the Lord.

Prayer items and updates about Baptist relief work in and around Ukraine are at the CBM website.

Closing Song(s)

Benediction

Now may the God of peace—who brought up from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the sheep, and ratified an eternal covenant with his blood—may he equip you with all you need for doing his will. May he produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to him. All glory to him forever and ever! Amen.
~ Hebrews 13:20-21

20 但 愿 赐 平 安 的 神 , 就 是 那 凭 永 约 之 血 、 使 群 羊 的 大 牧 人 ─ 我 主 耶 稣 从 死 里 复 活 的 神 ,

21 在 各 样 善 事 上 成 全 你 们 , 叫 你 们 遵 行 他 的 旨 意 ; 又 藉 着 耶 稣 基 督 在 你 们 心 里 行 他 所 喜 悦 的 事 。 愿 荣 耀 归 给 他 , 直 到 永 永 远 远 。 阿 们 

~ 希 伯 來 書 13:20-21 (CUVS)
