Join us right here worship together, though apart for now.

Sunday, June 7, 2020 – Trinity Sunday

Meditation:

Psalm 8 (NLT) ;  詩 篇 8 (CUVS)

1 O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
Your glory is higher than the heavens.
2 You have taught children and infants
to tell of your strength,
silencing your enemies
and all who oppose you.
3 When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—
the moon and the stars you set in place—
4 what are mere mortals that you should think about them,
human beings that you should care for them?
5 Yet you made them only a little lower than God
and crowned them[e] with glory and honor.
6 You gave them charge of everything you made,
putting all things under their authority—
7 the flocks and the herds
and all the wild animals,
8 the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea,
and everything that swims the ocean currents.
9 O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!

1 耶 和 华 ─ 我 们 的 主 啊 , 你 的 名 在 全 地 何 其 美 ! 你 将 你 的 荣 耀 彰 显 於 天 。

2 你 因 敌 人 的 缘 故 , 从 婴 孩 和 吃 奶 的 口 中 , 建 立 了 能 力 , 使 仇 敌 和 报 仇 的 闭 口 无 言 。

3 我 观 看 你 指 头 所 造 的 天 , 并 你 所 陈 设 的 月 亮 星 宿 ,

4 便 说 : 人 算 甚 麽 , 你 竟 顾 念 他 ? 世 人 算 甚 麽 , 你 竟 眷 顾 他 ?

5 你 叫 他 比 天 使 ( 或 译 : 神 ) 微 小 一 点 , 并 赐 他 荣 耀 尊 贵 为 冠 冕 。

6 你 派 他 管 理 你 手 所 造 的 , 使 万 物 , 就 是 一 切 的 牛 羊 、 田 野 的 兽 、 空 中 的 鸟 、 海 里 的 鱼 , 凡 经 行 海 道 的 , 都 服 在 他 的 脚 下 。

Letter P

Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul!  ~ Psalm 146:1

Praise the Lord

This verse is the beginning of a song that King David wrote. In his song, he lists all the reasons he knows he can trust God. Some of these are:

  • God made everything in heaven and in Earth
  • He keeps his promises
  • He gives food to the hungry
  • He loves people who do what is right
  • He looks after those who need help

One of the songs above says there are ten thousand reasons to praise God! How many can you think of?

When David thought of how wonderful God is, it made him want to sing and make music!  He wanted to praise God for every day for his whole life. How can you praise God today?

Our Father, you are wonderful in so many ways, and we want to tell you so! Praise the Lord! Amen.

Prayer for our World:

Our prayer this week is from Conrad and Fiona Kwok, CBM’s Chinese Ministries Team Leaders in Asia. They are based in Thailand, and you can read their prayer here: https://www.cbmin.org/prayerline/.

Scripture: The Great Commission

Matthew 28:16-20(NLT) ; 馬 太 福 音 28:16-20 (CUVS)

Then the eleven disciples left for Galilee, going to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him—but some of them doubted!

Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

16 十 一 个 门 徒 往 加 利 利 去 , 到 了 耶 稣 约 定 的 山 上 。

17 他 们 见 了 耶 稣 就 拜 他 , 然 而 还 有 人 疑 惑 。

18 耶 稣 进 前 来 , 对 他 们 说 : 天 上 地 下 所 有 的 权 柄 都 赐 给 我 了 。

19 所 以 , 你 们 要 去 , 使 万 民 作 我 的 门 徒 , 奉 父 、 子 、 圣 灵 的 名 给 他 们 施 洗 ( 或 作 : 给 他 们 施 洗 , 归 於 父 、 子 、 圣 灵 的 名 ) 。

20 凡 我 所 吩 咐 你 们 的 , 都 教 训 他 们 遵 守 , 我 就 常 与 你 们 同 在 , 直 到 世 界 的 末 了 。

Benediction:

Dear brothers and sisters, I close my letter with these last words: Be joyful. Grow to maturity. Encourage each other. Live in harmony and peace. Then the God of love and peace will be with you.                                                              ~ 2 Corinthians 13:11 (NLT)

还 有 末 了 的 话 : 愿 弟 兄 们 都 喜 乐 。 要 作 完 全 人 ; 要 受 安 慰 ; 要 同 心 合 意 ; 要 彼 此 和 睦 。 如 此 , 仁 爱 和 平 的 神 必 常 与 你 们 同 在 。                                                                                                                                                                ~  歌 林 多 後 書 13:11 (CUVS)
