Prelude

Opening Worship Song(s)

1st Scripture

Psalm 75 (NLT) ; 詩 篇 75 (CUVS)

We thank you, O God!
    We give thanks because you are near.
    People everywhere tell of your wonderful deeds.

God says, “At the time I have planned,
    I will bring justice against the wicked.
When the earth quakes and its people live in turmoil,
    I am the one who keeps its foundations firm. Interlude

“I warned the proud, ‘Stop your boasting!’
    I told the wicked, ‘Don’t raise your fists!
Don’t raise your fists in defiance at the heavens
    or speak with such arrogance.’”
For no one on earth—from east or west,
    or even from the wilderness—
    should raise a defiant fist.
It is God alone who judges;
    he decides who will rise and who will fall.
For the Lord holds a cup in his hand
    that is full of foaming wine mixed with spices.
He pours out the wine in judgment,
    and all the wicked must drink it,
    draining it to the dregs.

But as for me, I will always proclaim what God has done;
    I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 For God says, “I will break the strength of the wicked,
    but I will increase the power of the godly.”

75  神 啊 , 我 们 称 谢 你 , 我 们 称 谢 你 ! 因 为 你 的 名 相 近 , 人 都 述 说 你 奇 妙 的 作 为 。

我 到 了 所 定 的 日 期 , 必 按 正 直 施 行 审 判 。

地 和 其 上 的 居 民 都 消 化 了 ; 我 曾 立 了 地 的 柱 子 。 ( 细 拉 )

我 对 狂 傲 人 说 : 不 要 行 事 狂 傲 ! 对 凶 恶 人 说 : 不 要 举 角 !

不 要 把 你 们 的 角 高 举 ; 不 要 挺 着 颈 项 说 话 。

因 为 高 举 非 从 东 , 非 从 西 , 也 非 从 南 而 来 。

惟 有 神 断 定 ; 他 使 这 人 降 卑 , 使 那 人 升 高 。

耶 和 华 手 里 有 杯 , 其 中 的 酒 起 沫 , 杯 内 满 了 搀 杂 的 酒 ; 他 倒 出 来 , 地 上 的 恶 人 必 都 喝 这 酒 的 渣 滓 , 而 且 喝 尽 。

但 我 要 宣 扬 , 直 到 永 远 ! 我 要 歌 颂 雅 各 的 神 !

10 恶 人 一 切 的 角 , 我 要 砍 断 ; 惟 有 义 人 的 角 必 被 高 举 。

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

Matthew 7:1-5 (NLT) ; 馬 太 福 音 7:1-5 (CUVS)

“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged.

“And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own? How can you think of saying to your friend, ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.

你 们 不 要 论 断 人 , 免 得 你 们 被 论 断 。

因 为 你 们 怎 样 论 断 人 , 也 必 怎 样 被 论 断 ; 你 们 用 甚 麽 量 器 量 给 人 , 也 必 用 甚 麽 量 器 量 给 你 们 。

为 甚 麽 看 见 你 弟 兄 眼 中 有 刺 , 却 不 想 自 己 眼 中 有 梁 木 呢 ?

你 自 己 眼 中 有 梁 木 , 怎 能 对 你 弟 兄 说 : 容 我 去 掉 你 眼 中 的 刺 呢 ?

你 这 假 冒 为 善 的 人 ! 先 去 掉 自 己 眼 中 的 梁 木 , 然 後 才 能 看 得 清 楚 , 去 掉 你 弟 兄 眼 中 的 刺 。

Prayer for the World

Today’s Canadian Baptist Ministries prayer is from Byron Velasquez, Integral Mission and Global Discipleship Coordinator in Guatemala.

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)
