崇拜程序（2）Order of Home Worship (2)
- 开始祷告：亲爱的主，今天我们来敬拜你，透过赞美、祷告和聆听主你的声音。 你垂听我们向你的祈求，也求你帮助我们能够聆听你的声音。奉主名求，阿们。
- 读经：诗篇86篇 8-10节
- 当时马大马利亚处于绝望当中。她们不约而同的告诉耶稣：主啊，你若早在这里，我兄弟必不死（11:21, 32）。尽管如此，她们依然在耶稣里找到盼望。耶稣如此说：复活在我，生命也在我！信我的人，虽然死了，也必复活（11:25）。经文让我们看到，耶稣到了拉撒路所埋葬的坟墓处，把石头挪开，呼叫道：拉撒路出来！拉撒路就从死里复活了。这段经文给我们看到：在绝望当中看到了盼望！

- Take Time to Reflect:
- Who has hope in this passage? What is hope?
- When faced with life discouragement, who did Martha andMary turn to? What about us?
- How is the narrative of the resurrection of Lazarus help us to trust in Jesus Christ?
(Ask everyone to share their thoughts)
- Some important points to share from the above passage:
- Martha has hope. She has the hope that something would happen when Jesus came. She says: “And even now I know that whatever you ask from God, God will give you.” Martha did not know exactly what Jesus had planned, but she had hope that something would happen. Hope does not cover up what has happened, but it gives a promise of something better to come.
- Martha and May were discouraged as they both told Jesus “If you would have been here our brother would not have died.” But even in that discouragement they saw a hope in Jesus. Indeed, Jesus is their hope and He responded by saying, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die.” And eventually, Jesus finds the tomb where Lazarus is buried, He asks for the stone to be removed, then He calls, “Lazarus, come out.” And out of death comes Lazarus. This passage is telling us that out of discouragement comes hope.
- This narrative of Lazarus is the narrative of hope, a narrative of the resurrection, a narrative that says out of despair comes hope for those who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of their lives. For Jesus says, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die.” All of us face discouragement in life, and it is at those times we need to turn to the Lord and somehow He will act. We must believe that somehow He will act. When we are somewhere between yesterday’s tragedy and tomorrow’s triumph, let us choose to trust in Christ, wait upon Him, and see how God will act.
- Prayer: Abba Father, we thank You that we have hope through Your Son, Jesus Christ. Presently we may be in despair, full of worry, and filled with hopelessness. However, we pray that through your Word and Holy Spirit, help us continue to wait and linger on You. For we know that You will act and You will deliver. May You give us the grace and the mercy we need to wait upon You. In Jesus Christ name we pray. Amen.
- Offering, Thanksgiving and Intercession Time: (Ask everyone to share a matter to be thankful for and a prayer request, then give thanks and pray for each other. After that offering maybe received.)
- Closing song: I Know Who Holds Tomorrow
