Prelude

Opening Worship Song(s)

1st Scripture

Psalm 25:1-7 (NLT) ; 詩 篇 25:1-7 (CUVS)

25 O Lord, I give my life to you.
    I trust in you, my God!
Do not let me be disgraced,
    or let my enemies rejoice in my defeat.
No one who trusts in you will ever be disgraced,
    but disgrace comes to those who try to deceive others.

Show me the right path, O Lord;
    point out the road for me to follow.
Lead me by your truth and teach me,
    for you are the God who saves me.
    All day long I put my hope in you.
Remember, O Lord, your compassion and unfailing love,
    which you have shown from long ages past.
Do not remember the rebellious sins of my youth.
    Remember me in the light of your unfailing love,
    for you are merciful, O Lord.

25 ( 大 卫 的 诗 。 ) 耶 和 华 啊 , 我 的 心 仰 望 你 。

我 的 神 啊 , 我 素 来 倚 靠 你 ; 求 你 不 要 叫 我 羞 愧 , 不 要 叫 我 的 仇 敌 向 我 夸 胜 。

凡 等 候 你 的 必 不 羞 愧 ; 惟 有 那 无 故 行 奸 诈 的 必 要 羞 愧 。

耶 和 华 啊 , 求 你 将 你 的 道 指 示 我 , 将 你 的 路 教 训 我 !

求 你 以 你 的 真 理 引 导 我 , 教 训 我 , 因 为 你 是 救 我 的 神 。 我 终 日 等 候 你 。

耶 和 华 啊 , 求 你 记 念 你 的 怜 悯 和 慈 爱 , 因 为 这 是 亘 古 以 来 所 常 有 的 。

求 你 不 要 记 念 我 幼 年 的 罪 愆 和 我 的 过 犯 ; 耶 和 华 啊 , 求 你 因 你 的 恩 惠 , 按 你 的 慈 爱 记 念 我 。

Song(s) of Worship

Time for Quiet and Reflection

2nd Scripture

Ephesians 4:17-24 (NLT) ; 以 弗 所 書 4:17-24 (CUVS)

17 With the Lord’s authority I say this: Live no longer as the Gentiles do, for they are hopelessly confused. 18 Their minds are full of darkness; they wander far from the life God gives because they have closed their minds and hardened their hearts against him. 19 They have no sense of shame. They live for lustful pleasure and eagerly practice every kind of impurity.

20 But that isn’t what you learned about Christ. 21 Since you have heard about Jesus and have learned the truth that comes from him, 22 throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. 23 Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. 24 Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.

17 所 以 我 说 , 且 在 主 里 确 实 的 说 , 你 们 行 事 不 要 再 像 外 邦 人 存 虚 妄 的 心 行 事 。

18 他 们 心 地 昏 昧 , 与 神 所 赐 的 生 命 隔 绝 了 , 都 因 自 己 无 知 , 心 里 刚 硬 ;

19 良 心 既 然 丧 尽 , 就 放 纵 私 欲 , 贪 行 种 种 的 污 秽 。

20 你 们 学 了 基 督 , 却 不 是 这 样 。

21 如 果 你 们 听 过 他 的 道 , 领 了 他 的 教 , 学 了 他 的 真 理 ,

22 就 要 脱 去 你 们 从 前 行 为 上 的 旧 人 , 这 旧 人 是 因 私 欲 的 迷 惑 渐 渐 变 坏 的 ;

23 又 要 将 你 们 的 心 志 改 换 一 新 ,

24 并 且 穿 上 新 人 ; 这 新 人 是 照 着 神 的 形 像 造 的 , 有 真 理 的 仁 义 和 圣 洁 。

Worship Song

3rd Scripture

Luke 19:1-10 (NLT) ; 路 加 福 音 19:1-10 (CUVS)

19 Jesus entered Jericho and made his way through the town. There was a man there named Zacchaeus. He was the chief tax collector in the region, and he had become very rich. He tried to get a look at Jesus, but he was too short to see over the crowd. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree beside the road, for Jesus was going to pass that way.

When Jesus came by, he looked up at Zacchaeus and called him by name. “Zacchaeus!” he said. “Quick, come down! I must be a guest in your home today.”

Zacchaeus quickly climbed down and took Jesus to his house in great excitement and joy. But the people were displeased. “He has gone to be the guest of a notorious sinner,” they grumbled.

Meanwhile, Zacchaeus stood before the Lord and said, “I will give half my wealth to the poor, Lord, and if I have cheated people on their taxes, I will give them back four times as much!”

Jesus responded, “Salvation has come to this home today, for this man has shown himself to be a true son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”

19 耶 稣 进 了 耶 利 哥 , 正 经 过 的 时 候 ,

有 一 个 人 名 叫 撒 该 , 作 税 吏 长 , 是 个 财 主 。

他 要 看 看 耶 稣 是 怎 样 的 人 ; 只 因 人 多 , 他 的 身 量 又 矮 , 所 以 不 得 看 见 ,

就 跑 到 前 头 , 爬 上 桑 树 , 要 看 耶 稣 , 因 为 耶 稣 必 从 那 里 经 过 。

耶 稣 到 了 那 里 , 抬 头 一 看 , 对 他 说 : 撒 该 , 快 下 来 ! 今 天 我 必 住 在 你 家 里 。

他 就 急 忙 下 来 , 欢 欢 喜 喜 的 接 待 耶 稣 。

众 人 看 见 , 都 私 下 议 论 说 : 他 竟 到 罪 人 家 里 去 住 宿 。

撒 该 站 着 对 主 说 : 主 阿 , 我 把 所 有 的 一 半 给 穷 人 ; 我 若 讹 诈 了 谁 , 就 还 他 四 倍 。

耶 稣 说 : 今 天 救 恩 到 了 这 家 , 因 为 他 也 是 亚 伯 拉 罕 的 子 孙 。

10 人 子 来 , 为 要 寻 找 , 拯 救 失 丧 的 人 。

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)
