    *Authentic Community

    1 - Together we are stronger 團結就是力量

    Proverbs 18:1 NKJV
    [1] A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire; He rages against all wise judgment.
    箴言 18:1 CNV
    離群獨處的,只顧自己的心願; 他抗拒一切大智慧。

    2 - Together we can be a part of something bigger

    [16] He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.

    3 - Together we are together

    Acts 2:46-47 NLT
    [46] They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord's Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity- [47] all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.
    使徒行傳 2:46-47 CNV
    他們天天同心在殿裡恆切地聚集,一家一家地擘餅,存著歡樂和誠懇的心用飯,又讚美 神,並且得到全民的喜愛。主將得救的人,天天加給教會。

    Make 2018 the Best Year Yet!

    David Yu
    讓 2018年成為最好的一年!
    Make 2018 the best year yet!

    路加福音 5章3-11節 (CUV)
    3 有一隻船、是西門的、耶穌就上去、請他把船撐開、稍微離岸、就坐下、從船上教訓眾人。 4 講完了、對西門說、把船開到水深之處、下網打魚。 5 西門說、夫子、我們整夜勞力、並沒有打著甚麼.但依從你的話、我就下網。 6 他們下了網、就圈住許多魚、網險些裂開. 7 便招呼那隻船上的同伴來幫助。他們就來把魚裝滿了兩隻船、甚至船要沉下去。 8 西門彼得看見、就俯伏在耶穌膝前、說、主阿、離開我、我是個罪人。
    9 他和一切同在的人、都驚訝這一網所打的魚. 10 他的夥伴西庇太的兒子、雅各、約翰、也是這樣。耶穌對西門說、不要怕、從今以後、你要得人了。 11 他們把兩隻船攏了岸、就撇下所有的跟從了耶穌。

    Luke 5:3-11 NLT
    3 “Stepping into one of the boats, Jesus asked Simon, its owner, to push it out into the water. So he sat in the boat and taught the crowds from there. 4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Now go out where it is deeper, and let down your nets to catch some fish.” 5 “Master,” Simon replied, “we worked hard all last night and didn’t catch a thing. But if you say so, I’ll let the nets down again.” 6 And this time their nets were so full of fish they began to tear! 7 A shout for help brought their partners in the other boat, and soon both boats were filled with fish and on the verge of sinking. 8 When Simon Peter realized what had happened, he fell to his knees before Jesus and said, “Oh, Lord, please leave me—I’m such a sinful man.” 9 For he was awestruck by the number of fish they had caught, as were the others with him. 10 His partners, James and John, the sons of Zebedee, were also amazed. Jesus replied to Simon, “Don’t be afraid! From now on you’ll be fishing for people!” 11 And as soon as they landed, they left everything and followed Jesus.”
