    生命堂: 今天耶穌會同我們講的兩件事情
    1."Hey Lifehouse Church HK, “be catchers of living people”.
    “香港生命堂教會, ” 要成為得活人的捕手“

    (Luke 5:8-11 NIV) When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!” (9) For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken, (10) and so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simon’s partners. Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will fish for people.” (11) So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.
    路加福音 5章8-11節(NCV)
    西門.彼得看見這種情景,就俯伏在耶穌膝前,說:“主啊,離開我,因為我是個罪人。”他和跟他在一起的人,因這網所打的魚,都十分驚駭。西門的夥伴, 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,你要作得人的漁夫了 。”他們把兩隻船攏了岸,撇下一切,跟從了耶穌。

    (Luke 5:10b CJB) “Don’t be frightened, from now on you will be catching men — alive!”
    路加福音 5章10節下
    別怕了,從今以后、你要活捉得人 - 活生生 !

    Living sacrifices

    (Romans 12:1 NIV) Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.
    羅馬書 12章1節(CUV) 所以弟兄們、我以 神的慈悲勸你們、將身體獻上、當作活祭、是聖潔的、是 神所喜悅的.你們 如此事奉、乃是 所當然的。

    (Matthew 16:16-19 NIV) Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living
    God.” (17) Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. (18) And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. (19) I will give you the keys
    of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be[d] loosed in heaven.
    馬太福音 16章16-19節(NCV) .彼得回答:“你是基督,是永生神的兒子 。”耶穌對他說:“約拿的兒子西門,你是有福的, 因為這不是人指示你的, 而是我在天上的父啟示你的。我告訴你,你是彼得,我要在這磐石上建立 我的教會,死亡的權勢不能勝過他。我要把天國的鑰匙給你,你在地上捆綁的,在天上也被捆綁; 你在地上釋放的,在天上也被釋放。”

    "You are a Rock (Gr:Petros), and on this rock (Gr:Cliff face, massive rock) I’ll build my Church” (V. 18)
    “還告訴你,你是石頭彼得(即‥『 石頭』的意思);在這磐石上我要建立我的教會” 18節

    Living stones

    (1 Peter 2:4-5 NIV) As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— (5) you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
    彼得前書 2章4-5節 (NCV)
    主是活石,雖然被人棄絕,卻是 神所揀選所珍貴的;你們到他面前來 ,就像活石 ,被建造成為靈宮,作聖潔的祭司,藉著耶穌基督獻上蒙 神悅納的靈祭。

    Come and Sit With Jesus

    Pastor Richard Welsh
    *Come and sit with Jesus*

    Luke 10:38-42 NIV[38] As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. [39] She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said. [40] But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” [41] “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, *“you are worried and upset about many things,* [42] but few things are needed---or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is *better*, and it will not be taken away from her.”

    路加福音 第十章 38-42節 CNV
    [38] 他們走路的時候,耶穌進了一個村莊。有一個名叫馬大的女人,接他到家裡。 [39] 她有一個妹妹,名叫馬利亞,坐在主的腳前聽道。 [40] 馬大被許多要作的事,弄得心煩意亂,就上前來,說:“主啊,我妹妹讓我一個人侍候,你不理嗎?請吩咐她來幫助我。” [41] 主回答她:“馬大,馬大,*你為許多事操心忙碌*, [42]但是最需要的只有一件,馬利亞已經選擇了那上*好的分*,是不能從她奪去的。”

    Keep the priority your relationship with Jesus

    Philippians 3:8-9 NLT
    [8] Yes, *everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.* For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ [9] and become one with him. I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ. For God's way of making us right with himself depends on faith.
    腓立比書 3:8-9 CNV
    [8] 不但這樣,*我也把萬事當作是有損的,因為我以認識我主基督耶穌為至寶*。為了他,我把萬事都拋棄了,看作廢物,為了要得著基督。 [9] 並且得以在他裡面,不是有自己因律法而得的義,而是有因信基督而得的義,就是基於信心,從 神而來的義,

    Step into His presence and give Him what’s in your heart

    Psalm 62:8 NLT
    [8] O my people, trust in him at all times. *Pour out your heart to him*, for God is our refuge.
    詩篇 第62章 8節 CNV
    [8] 眾民哪!你們要常常倚靠他,*在他面前傾心吐意*;因為神是我們的避難所。

    Serve Him out of a place of joy and vision

    Psalm 100:2 NKJV
    [2] *Serve the LORD with gladness* ; Come before His presence with singing.
    詩篇 第100章 2節 CNV
    [2] *應當歡歡喜喜事奉耶和華*,歡唱著到他的面前。
