    Deep Relationships

    Pastor Richard Welsh
    *Deep relationships*

    John 14:9a NLT
    [9] Jesus replied, "Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and *yet you still don't know who I am*?
    約翰福音 14:9 (CCBT)
    9 耶穌說:「腓力,我和你們相處了這麼久,*你還不認識我嗎*?

    Love tangibly

    1 John 3:16,18-19 NLT
    [16] We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters. [18] Dear children, let's not merely say that we love each other; *let us show the truth by our actions.* [19] Our actions will show that we belong to the truth, so we will be confident when we stand before God.
    約翰一書 3:16, 18-19 (CCBT)
    16 主耶穌為我們捨命,我們由此便知道什麼是愛,我們也應當為弟兄姊妹捨命。 18 所以,孩子們啊,不要單在口頭上說愛人,*總要以真誠的行動表現出來* 。

    Live honestly

    Ephesians 4:14-15 NLT
    [14] Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won't be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth. [15] Instead, we will *speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ,* who is the head of his body, the church.
    以弗所書 4:14-15 (CNVT)
    14 使我們不再作小孩子,中了人的詭計和騙人的手段,給異教之風搖撼,飄來飄去, 15 *卻要在愛中過誠實的生活,在各方面長進,達到基督的身量*。他是教會的頭,

    Forgive continually

    Luke 17:4 NLT
    [4] *Even if that person wrongs you seven times a day* and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, you must forgive."
    路加福音 17:4 (CCBT)
    4 *就算他一天得罪你七次*,每次都對你說,「我悔改‧」你都要饒恕他。

    Godly Decisions

    Pastor Richard Welsh
    Godly decisions

    1 Corinthians 16:5-7 NLT
    [5] I am coming to visit you after I have been to Macedonia, for I am planning to travel through Macedonia. [6] Perhaps I will stay awhile with you, possibly all winter, and then you can send me on my way to my next destination. [7] This time I don't want to make just a short visit and then go right on. I want to come and stay awhile, if the Lord will let me.
    哥林多前書 16章5-7節(NCV)

    Acts 16:6-10 NLT
    [6] Next Paul and Silas traveled through the area of Phrygia and Galatia, because the Holy Spirit had prevented them from preaching the word in the province of Asia at that time. [7] Then coming to the borders of Mysia, they headed north for the province of Bithynia, but again the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them to go there. [8] So instead, they went on through Mysia to the seaport of Troas. [9] That night Paul had a vision: A man from Macedonia in northern Greece was standing there, pleading with him, "Come over to Macedonia and help us!" [10] So we decided to leave for Macedonia at once, having concluded that God was calling us to preach the Good News there.
    使徒行傳 16章6-10節(NCV)
    他們來到每西亞邊境,想要去庇推尼,耶穌的靈也不許。他們經過每西亞,下到特羅亞。夜間有一個異象向保羅顯現:有一個馬其頓人站著求他說:“請你到馬其頓來,幫助我們!”保羅見了這異象,我們就認定是 神呼召我們去傳福音給他們,於是立刻設法前往馬其頓。

    1 - Keep God first (His kingdom)

    Matthew 6:33 NIV
    [33] But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
    馬太福音 6章33節 (NCV)

    2 - Live with Godly character (His righteousness)

    3 - Step forward in faith and humility

    2 Timothy 1:7 NLT
    [7] For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
    提摩太後書 1章7節 (NCV)
    因為 神所賜給我們的,不是膽怯的靈,而是有能力、仁愛、自律的靈。
