Prelude

Opening Worship Song(s)

1st Scripture

Psalm 92:1-8 (NLT) ; 詩 篇 92:1-8 (CUVS)

It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
    to sing praises to the Most High.
It is good to proclaim your unfailing love in the morning,
    your faithfulness in the evening,
accompanied by a ten-stringed instrument, a harp,
    and the melody of a lyre.

You thrill me, Lord, with all you have done for me!
    I sing for joy because of what you have done.
O Lord, what great works you do!
    And how deep are your thoughts.
Only a simpleton would not know,
    and only a fool would not understand this:
Though the wicked sprout like weeds
    and evildoers flourish,
    they will be destroyed forever.

But you, O Lord, will be exalted forever.

92 ( 安 息 日 的 诗 歌 。 ) 称 谢 耶 和 华 ! 歌 颂 你 至 高 者 的 名 !

用 十 弦 的 乐 器 和 瑟 , 用 琴 弹 幽 雅 的 声 音 , 早 晨 传 扬 你 的 慈 爱 ; 每 夜 传 扬 你 的 信 实 。 这 本 为 美 事 。

a

因 你 ─ 耶 和 华 藉 着 你 的 作 为 叫 我 高 兴 , 我 要 因 你 手 的 工 作 欢 呼 。

耶 和 华 啊 , 你 的 工 作 何 其 大 ! 你 的 心 思 极 其 深 !

畜 类 人 不 晓 得 ; 愚 顽 人 也 不 明 白 。

恶 人 茂 盛 如 草 , 一 切 作 孽 之 人 发 旺 的 时 候 , 正 是 他 们 要 灭 亡 , 直 到 永 远 。

惟 你 ─ 耶 和 华 是 至 高 , 直 到 永 远 。

Time for Quiet and Reflection

Reflective Scripture

Philippians 4:8-9 (NLT) ; 腓 立 比 書 4:8-9 (CUVS)

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.

弟 兄 们 , 我 还 有 未 尽 的 话 : 凡 是 真 实 的 、 可 敬 的 、 公 义 的 、 清 洁 的 、 可 爱 的 、 有 美 名 的 , 若 有 甚 麽 德 行 , 若 有 甚 麽 称 赞 , 这 些 事 你 们 都 要 思 念 。

你 们 在 我 身 上 所 学 习 的 , 所 领 受 的 , 所 听 见 的 , 所 看 见 的 , 这 些 事 你 们 都 要 去 行 , 赐 平 安 的 神 就 必 与 你 们 同 在 。

Responsive Prayer

3rd Scripture

Luke 24:35-43 (NLT) ; 路 加 福 音 24:35-43 (CUVS)

35 Then the two from Emmaus told their story of how Jesus had appeared to them as they were walking along the road, and how they had recognized him as he was breaking the bread. 36 And just as they were telling about it, Jesus himself was suddenly standing there among them. “Peace be with you,” he said. 37 But the whole group was startled and frightened, thinking they were seeing a ghost!

38 “Why are you frightened?” he asked. “Why are your hearts filled with doubt? 39 Look at my hands. Look at my feet. You can see that it’s really me. Touch me and make sure that I am not a ghost, because ghosts don’t have bodies, as you see that I do.” 40 As he spoke, he showed them his hands and his feet.

41 Still they stood there in disbelief, filled with joy and wonder. Then he asked them, “Do you have anything here to eat?” 42 They gave him a piece of broiled fish, 43 and he ate it as they watched.

35 两 个 人 就 把 路 上 所 遇 见 , 和 擘 饼 的 时 候 怎 麽 被 他 们 认 出 来 的 事 , 都 述 说 了 一 遍 。

36 正 说 这 话 的 时 候 , 耶 稣 亲 自 站 在 他 们 当 中 , 说 : 愿 你 们 平 安 !

37 他 们 却 惊 慌 害 怕 , 以 为 所 看 见 的 是 魂 。

38 耶 稣 说 : 你 们 为 甚 麽 愁 烦 ? 为 甚 麽 心 里 起 疑 念 呢 ?

39 你 们 看 我 的 手 , 我 的 脚 , 就 知 道 实 在 是 我 了 。 摸 我 看 看 ! 魂 无 骨 无 肉 , 你 们 看 , 我 是 有 的 。

40 说 了 这 话 , 就 把 手 和 脚 给 他 们 看 。

41 他 们 正 喜 得 不 敢 信 , 并 且 希 奇 ; 耶 稣 就 说 : 你 们 这 里 有 甚 麽 吃 的 没 有 ?

42 他 们 便 给 他 一 片 烧 鱼 。 ( 有 古 卷 在 此 有 : 和 一 块 蜜 房 。 )

43 他 接 过 来 , 在 他 们 面 前 吃 了 。

Closing Song(s)

Benediction

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.
~ Ephesians 3:20-21

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)
