人的智慧與神的心意

多少時候,我們都是以人的智慧去作出生命的抉擇,最終卻忽略了上帝的心意。按著人的智慧,迦南之地實在入不得。但約書亞和迦勒對上帝心意的堅持,卻給我們明白一個很重要的真理:有時候,上帝的心意不一定與人的智慧配合。基甸三百人軍隊的勝利、日頭止住的情景、耶利哥城的倒塌、小孩子手裡的五餅二魚……,這些事例得以被稱爲神蹟,是因爲它們超越了人智慧的估計。——梁廷益牧師《成爲神蹟》

Preaching at GPCCC (Mark 4:35-41)

兩種害怕, 兩種希奇 Two Kinds Of Fear, Two Kinds Of Marvel (Mark 4:35-41)

你若想要耶穌成為你患難中隨時的幫助,你必須信靠祂。

思考:

耶穌基督是否在你船上?
你是否信靠耶穌?

「當轉眼仰望耶穌,定睛在祂奇妙慈容,在救主榮耀恩典大光中,世上事必然顯為虛空」

Preaching at GPCCC (Cantonese)

I never have my sermon in video except when I was in seminary class. Thanks GPCCC for taking video for me so I can review it. Many areas need to be improved on, namely , voice, clarity, and speed.

Caleb is a Gray Squirrel

Love this end-of-year presentation by Caleb!

Gray squirrel, gray squirrel, shake your bushy tail.
Gray squirrel, gray squirrel, shake your bushy tail.
Wrinkle up your little nose, hold the acorn in your toes.
Gray squirrel, gray squirrel, shake your bushy tail!
Nuts!

Caleb the Little Drummer

It all began with a concert last year. My son saw people playing drums for the first time (no, my church didn’t use drums during worship). From this concert he also picked up the habit of bowing after a song. See how he put these all together into the good ole Sunday School songs.

展開清晨的翅膀 Wings of the Dawn (Psalm 139)

One of my favorite songs from Stream of Praise 讚美之泉 (www.sop.org). I love how Ps 139:1-10 is beautifully fitted into the song!

 

 

Lyrics:
主耶和華,你已經鑒察了我。
我坐下,我起來,你都已曉得。
我行路,我躺臥,你都細察,你也深知我一切所行。
我舌頭上的話,你沒有一句不知道。
你在我前後環繞著我,按手在我身上。
這樣的奇妙,是我不能測透,
你的至高你的尊貴,是我永遠不能所及。
我可以往哪裡去躲避你的靈?
我可以往哪裡去逃,可躲避你的面?
我若展開清晨的翅膀飛到地極,就在那裡,
你的雙手也必引導我。

Ps 139:1-10 (NASB)
O LORD, You have searched me and known me.
You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thought from afar.
You scrutinize my path and my lying down, And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.
Even before there is a word on my tongue, Behold, O LORD, You know it all.
You have enclosed me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is too high, I cannot attain to it.
Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me.

Another Wedding Singing – This Is the Day

The second month since our church moved into our own building, we were able to host a wedding for one of our sister. And I sang the special music for them too.


 

This Is the Day
Words/Music: Scott Wesley Brown

This is the day that the Lord hath made
And I’m so glad He made you
With each rising sun you are here by my side
You are more than a dream come true

Oh, to have you, to hold you, to love you, to pray
To share with, to care with, to hold hands and say

This is the day that the Lord hath made
And I will rejoice, I will rejoice
I will rejoice with you

This is the love that the Lord hath made
That you and I are one
Love’s mystery is unfolding today
Written for us in the sun

Oh, for better, for worse, for rich or for poor
Each day that passes, I’ll love you more

‘Cos this is the day that the Lord hath made
And I will rejoice, I will rejoice
I will rejoice with you

This is the day!
