复活节主日

  • 请为大家先预备“复活节的鸡蛋”)
  • 点燃蜡烛(此蜡烛在受难节的时候被吹熄。今早点燃,代表永恒之光 – 耶稣基督照耀这个世界)
  1.  开始祷告:生命的主,我们为着这奇妙的复活节感谢你。当我们欢庆主耶稣基督的复活时,我们祈求你赐下丰盛的喜乐。我们为着生命充满伤痛的人祷告,让他们也能体会籍着主耶稣基督的复活所带来的盼望,奉主名求,阿们。
  2. 同声宣告:哈利路亚!基督已经复活了。我们赞美上帝,我们救主耶稣基督的父上帝。祂赐下新生命和盼望给我们,祂使耶稣从死里复活。 哈利路亚!
  3. 敬拜:我的救赎主活着 My Redeemer Lives

    向主欢呼 Shout to the Lord

  1. 读经:哥林多前书 15:55-57
  2. 请花一些时间阅读:耶稣两天前受难,当钉子插入耶稣的手和脚、当救主呼出祂最后的一口气,一切看似归于零,殊不知胜利已经临到。这场胜利不只是单单属于耶稣,更属于祂的跟随者。这呼应了保罗在哥林多前书15:55-57所说:“死啊,你得胜的权势在哪里?死啊,你的毒钩在哪里?” 死的毒钩就是罪,罪的权势就是律法。感谢上帝,使我们藉著我们的主耶稣基督得胜。

    在我们的生命中,有一些地方我们是可以藉着耶稣基督的复活得胜的。首先,我们可以得胜我们的罪恶和恶习。因着基督的灵住在我们里面,基督能够将我们从软弱和罪恶中拯救出来。当我们处于试探中,我们可以立刻转向主,因祂体恤我们的软弱(参:希伯来书4:15)。让我们记得,没有任何事情或罪恶是耶稣基督的大能无法破除的。

    第二,我们能够得胜恐惧。我们有不少的恐惧:我们害怕失去我们的身份、财富、健康,甚至我们的生命。然而,信靠耶稣的人其实不需要惧怕这一切,因为在基督里我们已经胜过了这一切。在基督里,我们拥有超乎我们所能理解的平安和喜乐(参:马太福音28:9-10)。

    第三,我们能够得胜生命中的试探和悲痛。我们的主始终在我们身边与我们同行:当我们软弱时,祂扶持我们;当我们需要安慰时,祂就在我们身边。基督帮助我们承担我们生命中最沉重的担子(参:马太福音11:28-30)。没有一个重担会沉重到基督无法承担的。当我们拥有基督在我们的生命里,我们不单单只是今天活着,而是永远活着,因为基督会再来召我们回到永恒荣耀的家。

    第四,我们能够得胜死亡。因着罪进入这个世界,死亡变得无可避免。死亡成为最终以及最令人无法面对的结局(参:哥林多前书15:26)。今天我们不需再害怕死亡,因为耶稣基督已经得胜,同时祂也使我们得胜死亡。因着耶稣基督的复活,我们从死亡的毒钩被救赎出来了。

  1. 个人反思:
    1. 复活节是关乎得胜。对于这位得胜的主,你要如何活出一个得胜的生活?
    2. 那方面的惧怕,你愿意交托给耶稣基督?
    3. 请向主来回应祷告。
  2. 同声祷告:永生的主,我们赞美你,因为你的荣耀带领我们进入复活的这一天。我们欢喜快乐,因为坟墓无法胜过你的圣子,因祂已经得胜死亡,并且复活,也掌管全地。我们赞美你,因着基督赐给我们的新生命,叫我们带着欢喜快乐的心来跟随祂。愿你的圣灵引领我们脱离困惑,跟随耶稣基督的脚踪,让我们的生命成为基督爱世人的美好见证。赞美、荣耀与感谢都归于你,我们的父上帝,从永远到永远,阿们。

  1. 委身过一个得胜的生命及感恩的时刻:行动:

    大家可以打破【复活鸡蛋】,代表着主耶稣基督的复活,空的坟墓。它也代表了一个新的生命 – 得胜的生命 – 被保存的生命。接下来把蜡烛吹熄,提醒我们,如今我们是世上的光和盐,我们需要为了基督而照亮这个世界。最后可以接收各人的奉献。

  1.  结束诗歌:因祂活着Because He Lives
  2. 结束祷告:主啊,你赐我们新生命,籍着基督的复活大能,把我们带回去你的大爱里。恳求主继续医治我们,籍着你圣灵的大能使我们继续为你而活,永远服侍你。阿们。

Order of Home Worship (6) – Easter Sunday

  • (Prepare for everyone an Easter Egg)
  • Light a candle (On Good Friday the candle was blown off, this morning the Everlasting Light, Jesus Christ is shining forth in this world)
  1. Opening Prayer: God of life, we praise you for the miracle of Easter. We pray for great joy to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection. We pray especially for those whose lives are filled with pain, loss or deep sadness. May they sense how the resurrection is a source of great hope. Amen.
  2. Proclaiming together: Alleluia! Christ is risen. Praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He has given us new life and hope. He has raised Jesus from the dead. Alleluia!
  3. Adoration:My Redeemer Lives 我的救赎者活着

    Shout To The Lord 向主欢呼

  1. Scripture Reading: 1 Corinthians 15:55-57
  2. Take Time To Read:When Jesus went to the cross two days ago, when the nails were driven into his hands and feet, and when the Savior breathed his last and it looked like all his work had come to naught; in fact, victory has been won! This victory is just not for Jesus Christ, but for all of his followers. Therefore, we can live a victorious life through Jesus Christ! This echoes what Paul says in 1 Corinthians 15:55- 57, “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

    There are few areas in our lives that we can have victory through our risen Lord, Jesus Christ! First, we can have victory over sins and evil habits. Christ has saved us from all of the weaknesses and sins in our life because we have the Spirit of Christ living in us. We can turn to our Lord when we are tempted to sin, for he knows our every weakness (ref. Hebrews 4:15). Let us be assured that nothing is so strong, no sin is so long standing and powerful, that it cannot be broken by Jesus Christ’s power!

    Second, we can have victory over our fear. People are afraid of many things; we fear of losing our status, pride, wealth, health, and especially our life which is death. But the truth is that those who trust in Christ Jesus have nothing to fear. Because in Christ Jesus we have overcome. In Christ we have peace and joy that passes all understanding (ref. Matthew 28:9-10).

    Third, we can have victory over life’s trials and tragedies. Our Lord is always walking by our side, holding us when we are weak, and comfort us when we need it. Christ is there to help us carry the heaviest burden that we are facing in our lives (ref. Matthew 11:28-30). Never has a burden been so heavy that he could not share it or lift it. Besides, when we have Jesus Christ in our lives, we no longer live only for now and then. We are living for eternity because we know that one day he will call us home, to the glorious eternal home.

    Fourth, we can have victory over death. Because sin entered this world, death is inevitable. Death is the final and hardest opposition that we face! (ref. 1 Corinthians 15:26) But today we no longer fear death because our Lord has overcome death and give us victory over death. Because of Christ’s resurrection, we are saved from the sting of death.

  1. TakeTime To Do Personal Response:
    1. Easter is about victory. What will you do with the victory Christ is offering to you?
    2. Which area/s of fear that you are going to surrender to Jesus Christ?
    3. Say a personal responsive prayer to God.
  2. Unison Prayer: Eternal God, we praise you that your glory has dawned on us and brought us into this day of resurrection. We rejoice that the grave could not hold your Son and that he has conquered death, risen to rule over all powers of this earth. We praise you that he summons us into new life, to follow him with joy and gladness. By your Spirit, lift us from doubt and despair and set our feet in Christ’s holy way, that our lives may be signs of his life and that all we have may show forth his love. Praise, glory, and thanksgiving to you, our God, forever and ever. Amen.

  1. Commitment to live a victorious life and offering: (Everyone breaks the Easter Egg – symbolizes the resurrection of Christ, the empty tomb. It also symbolizes a new life – victorious life – seal within it. Blow off the candle, reminding us that we are now the light and salt of the world, we are to go forth to shine for Jesus Christ. After that offering may be received.)
  2. Closing song: Because He Lives (因祂活着)
  3. Closing Prayer: O Lord, you have restored us to life, you have brought us back again into your love by the resurrection of Christ. Continue to heal us as we go to live and work by the power of your Holy Spirit. Amen.
