    PS Levi Mulhare

    Matthew 11:28-30 MSG
    “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
    馬太福音‬ ‭11:28-30‬ ‭CCB‬‬
    “「所有勞苦困乏、背負重擔的人啊,到我這裡來吧!我要賜給你們安息。 我心柔和謙卑,你們要負我的軛,向我學習,這樣你們的心靈必得享安息。 因為我的軛容易負,我的擔子很輕省。」”


    John 7:37-38 CSB) On the last and most important day of the festival, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. (38) The one who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, will have streams of living water flow from deep within him.

    ‭‭約翰福音‬ ‭7:37-38‬ ‭CCB‬‬
    “節期最後一天,也是整個節期的高潮,耶穌站起來高聲說:「人若渴了,可以到我這裡來喝。 (38) 正如聖經所言,信我的人,『從他裡面要流出活水的江河來』。」”


    Ephesians 2:8-10 NIV
    For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
    ‭‭以弗所書‬ ‭2:8-10‬ ‭CCB‬‬
    “你們得救是靠恩典,憑信心。這不是出於你們自己,而是上帝的禮物;(9) 也不是由於你們的行為,以免有人自誇。 (10) 我們是上帝的傑作,是在基督耶穌裡創造的,為要叫我們做祂預先安排給我們的美善之事。”

    自由自在地生活 - 滿溢!

    Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV
    20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
    以弗所書 3:20-21 CNV
    願榮耀歸給 神,就是歸給那能照著運行在我們裡面的大能,充充足足地成就一切,超過我們所求所想的。(21) 願榮耀在教會中和基督耶穌裡歸給他,直到萬代,永世無窮。阿們。
  • What is the "blessed life?"

    “A picture of the sad life.”

    Matthew 19:16,20-26 ERV
    [16] A man came to Jesus and asked, "Teacher, what good thing must I do to have eternal life?" [20] The young man said, "I have obeyed all these commands. What else do I need?
    [21] Jesus answered, "If you want to be perfect, then go and sell all that you own. Give the money to the poor, and you will have riches in heaven. Then come and follow me!" [22] But when the young man heard Jesus tell him to give away his money, he was sad. He didn't want to do this, because he was very rich. So he left. [23] Then Jesus said to his followers, "The truth is, it will be very hard for a rich person to enter God's kingdom. [24] Yes, I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter God's kingdom." [25] The followers were amazed to hear this. They asked, " Then who can be saved?" [26] Jesus looked at them and said, "This is something that people cannot do. But God can do anything."
    馬 太 福 音 19:16, 20-26 CUV
    [16] 有 一 個 人 來 見 耶 穌 , 說 : 夫 子 ( 有 古 卷 : 良 善 的 夫 子 ) , 我 該 做 甚 麼 善 事 才 能 得 永 生 ?
    [20] 那 少 年 人 說 : 這 一 切 我 都 遵 守 了 , 還 缺 少 甚 麼 呢 ? [21] 耶 穌 說 : 你 若 願 意 作 完 全 人 , 可 去 變 賣 你 所 有 的 , 分 給 窮 人 , 就 必 有 財 寶 在 天 上 ; 你 還 要 來 跟 從 我 。 [22] 那 少 年 人 聽 見 這 話 , 就 憂 憂 愁 愁 的 走 了 , 因 為 他 的 產 業 很 多 。 [23] 耶 穌 對 門 徒 說 : 我 實 在 告 訴 你 們 , 財 主 進 天 國 是 難 的 。 [24] 我 又 告 訴 你 們 , 駱 駝 穿 過 針 的 眼 , 比 財 主 進 神 的 國 還 容 易 呢 ! [25] 門 徒 聽 見 這 話 , 就 希 奇 得 很 , 說 : 這 樣 誰 能 得 救 呢 ? [26] 耶 穌 看 著 他 們 , 說 : 在 人 這 是 不 能 的 , 在 神 凡 事 都 能 。
