  • *Lifehouse – 15 Years On This Amazing Journey With God*
    *生命堂 – 與神同行的15年奇妙旅程*

    (Psalm 84:4-7) Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you. (5) Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. (6) As they pass through the Valley of Baka, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools. (7) They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.
    ‭‭(詩篇‬ ‭84:4-7‬ ‭CNV‬‬)住在你殿中的,都是有福的,他們還要不斷讚美你。 (5) 靠你有力量,心中嚮往通到聖殿大道的,這人是有福的。 (6) 他們經過乾旱的山谷,使這谷變為泉源之地,更有秋雨使這谷到處都是水池。 (7) 他們行走,力上加力, 直到各人在錫安朝見神。

    (Philippians 1:6 NLT) And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.
    ‭‭(腓立比書‬ ‭1:6‬ ‭CNV‬‬)我深信那在你們中間開始了美好工作的,到了基督耶穌的日子,必成全這工作。

    3 Words That Sustain Us
    支持著我們的三個字詞

    The Blessing Sustains Us
    祝福支持著我們

    (Genesis 12:1-3) The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. (2) “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. (3) I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
    ‭‭(創世記‬ ‭12:1-3‬ ‭CNV‬‬)耶和華對亞伯蘭說:“你要離開本地、本族、父家,到我指示你的地方去。 (2) 我必使你成為大國,賜福給你,使你的名為大,你也必使別人得福, (3) 給你祝福的,我必賜福給他;咒詛你的,我必咒詛他;地上的萬族,都必因你得福。”

    The Vision Sustains Us
    異象支持著我們

    (Genesis 15:5-6) He took him outside and said, “Look up at the sky and count the stars—if indeed you can count them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” (6) Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness.
    (‭‭創世記‬ ‭15:5-6‬ ‭CNV‬‬)於是領他到外面去,說:“你向天觀看,數點眾星,看你能不能把它們數得清楚。”又對他說:“你的後裔將要這樣眾多。” (6) 亞伯蘭信耶和華,耶和華就以此算為他的義了。

    The Presence Of God Sustains Us
    神的同在支持著我們

    (Exodus 33:12-14) Moses said to the Lord, “You have been telling me, ‘Lead these people,’ but you have not let me know whom you will send with me. You have said, ‘I know you by name and you have found favor with me.’ (13) If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people.” (14) The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
    (‭‭出埃及記‬ ‭33:12-14‬)摩西對耶和華說:“看,你吩咐我說:‘把這百姓領上去’,可是你卻沒有讓我知道你要差派誰與我同去;只是你曾經說過:‘我按著你的名字認識你,你在我眼前也蒙了恩。’ (13) 現在我若是在你眼前蒙恩,求你把你的道路指示我,使我可以認識你,可以在你眼前蒙恩;也求你想到這民族是你的人民。” (14) 耶和華說:“我必親自與你同去,也必給你安息。”

    羅馬書‬ ‭8:18, 28‬ ‭RCUV‬‬
    [18] 我認為,現在的苦楚,若比起將來要顯示給我們的榮耀,是不足介意的。[28] 我們知道,萬事都互相效力,叫愛上帝的人得益處,就是按他旨意被召的人。

    Who Is God Looking For?

    Speaker:

    35:36
    Who is God looking for?
    神在尋找誰?

    Genesis‬ ‭3:9‬ ‭NLT‬‬
    “Then the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?”

    創世紀 3章9節 (NCV)
    耶和華 神呼喚那人,對他說:“你在哪裡?”

    1. God is looking for the weak
    1 神在尋找軟弱的人

    1 Corinthians‬ ‭1:27‬ ‭GW‬‬
    “But God chose what the world considers nonsense to put wise people to shame. God chose what the world considers weak to put what is strong to shame.”

    哥林多前書1章27節 (NCV)
    但是 神卻揀選了世上愚笨的,使那些有智慧的羞愧。他也揀選了世上軟弱的,使那些剛強的羞愧。

    2. When we know our weaknesses, God will give us strength.
    2 當我們認知自己的軟弱,神會給我們力量

    ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:9-10‬ ‭NLT‬‬
    “Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

    哥林多後書12章9-10節(NCV)
    他卻對我說:“我的恩典是夠你用的,因為我的能力在人的軟弱上顯得完全。”所以,我更喜歡誇自己的軟弱,好讓基督的能力臨到我的身上。因此,我為基督的緣故,就以軟弱、凌辱、艱難、迫害、困苦為喜樂,因為我甚麼時候軟弱,甚麼時候就剛強了。

    Philippians‬ ‭4:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬
    “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.”

    腓立比書4章13節 (CUV)
    我靠著那加給我力量的、凡事都能作。

    3. All we need to do is respond to Him
    3 我們只需要去回應祂

    Isaiah‬ ‭40:31‬ ‭NLT‬‬
    “But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.”

    以賽亞書 40章31節(NCV)
    但那些仰望耶和華的人,必重新得力;他們必像鷹一樣展翅上騰;他們奔跑,也不困倦,他們行走,也不疲乏。
