马来西亚基督教卫理公会华人年议会 崇拜与音乐部 提供(17/5/2020) 崇拜程序(11)Order of Home Worship (11)

1. 始礼经文:万民哪,你们当称颂我们的上帝,使人得听赞美祂的声音。 祂使我们的性命存活,也不叫我们的脚摇动。我曾用口求告祂,我的舌头也称祂为高。上帝是应当称颂的!祂并没有推却我的祷告,也没有叫祂的慈爱离开我。(诗篇66: 8-9, 17, 20)

2. 颂赞祷告:我主我上帝,宇宙的君王,我们赞美祢。祢用祢的智慧创造了一切来敬拜祢。在这个时刻,祢召了来自各地的孩子们,向祢献上合一敬拜。当我们预备来敬拜祢时,求祢安静我们的心,使我们能够在所唱的诗歌和所读的经文中听到祢的声音。但愿今天的敬拜帮助我们全然的把自己献上于祢。我们奉主耶稣基督的名求。阿们。

3. 敬拜:我要全心赞美 My Heart Will Praise You, Lord

 倾听我的心 Listen To My Heart

 来复兴我Spirit Of The Living God

4. 读经:约翰福音 14:15-21

5. 请花一些时间阅读:

主耶稣向门徒们应许了什么?第16节的保惠师指的是谁?为何“保惠师”对你来说很重要?“保惠师”如何在你生命中工作?

6. 个人反思:

在今天的经文中,主耶稣即将回到天父那里。祂向门徒们保证祂和天父不会让他们单独面对将来的挑战。主耶稣知道门徒即将面对无比的困难。因此,主耶稣告诉门徒天父将赐给他们一位保惠师,那就是圣灵(14:16)。

同样的,我们也无法逃避生活上所遇到的挑战和每日的难题。这些日常问题可能导致我们与父上帝及耶稣分开。我们要感谢上帝赐下圣灵来帮助我们。圣灵如何帮助我们呢?

I)圣灵使我们知道上帝是我们的帮助(14:16)

当我们感到疲惫、郁闷及想放弃的时候,我们感恩因为上帝一直都在鼓励和帮助我们。因为主耶稣说祂要求天父另外赐下一位保惠师,就是圣灵。圣灵来,就是要鼓励、安慰、帮助我们以及与我们同在。祂会在我们耳边小声说:“你能做到的,不要放弃。尽管现在主耶稣在肉体上并没有与你在一起,但祂确实会帮助你,上帝一样会帮助你的。”

II)圣灵使我们知道上帝与我们同在 (14:16-18,21)

上帝不会离开我们也不会抛弃我们。祂不会使我们成为孤儿。当我们接受耶稣基督成为我们的主,上帝就藉着祂的灵来到我们当中,与我们同在。我们虽然看不到上帝,也没有常常感受到祂,但祂确实与我们同在,并居住在我们心中。当我们晓得上帝与我们同在,这将会带给我们极大的安慰。当我们需要祂时,祂总是在我们身边,我们无需独自面对生活的环境,因为上帝与我们同在。

III)圣灵使我们知道上帝住在我们里面 (14:17)

当上帝的灵住在我们里面,我们就有能力做伟大的事情。圣灵在五旬节的时候,充满了主耶稣的门徒。他们发现自己正在做以前从未做过的事情。因此,当上帝藉着圣灵住在我们里面时,祂使我们认罪,确定我们的救恩,帮助我们抵挡诱惑,提醒我们上帝的同在,安慰我们,赐给我们捍卫信仰所需要的话语及传讲福音的勇气。

我们并不孤单,因为我们拥有圣灵。这是主耶稣赐给信靠祂及跟随祂的人的应许及礼物。圣灵的到来就是上帝在我们生活中的同在。祂要帮助我们,与我们同在,并住在我们里面。我们可以肯定的是,即使在艰难环境中,我们有一位爱我们的天父,一位战胜死亡的救主和被差派到我们身边帮助我们的圣灵。

7. 同声祷告:天父上帝,感谢祢赐下圣灵给我们藉着圣灵我们晓得祢常与我们同在;当我们面对生活困境时,祢帮助我们不轻易放弃。我们也感恩,因为我们知道我们并不孤单的面对生活,因为祢与我们同在。我们知道祢的灵住在我们里面,因此我们能够行伟大的事,将荣耀归于祢。主,我们感谢祢,愿祢教导我们不要把祢的同在视为理所当然的,帮助我们不要使祢的灵忧伤。奉主耶稣基督名求。阿们。

8. 奉献、感恩以及代祷时刻(各人可以分享一两项感恩和代祷的事项,然后感恩祷告及彼此代祷。最后可以接受弟兄姐妹的奉献。)

9. 结束诗歌:哦,愿神的儿子围绕你O Let The Son Of God Enfold You

10. 结束祷告:亲爱的主,帮助我们成为一个口心一致的人。藉着救主耶稣基督,让我们可以天天活出我们所相信的。奉主耶稣的名祷告,阿们。

Order of Home Worship (11)

1. Opening Words: Praise our God, O peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard; he has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping. I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue. Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me! (Psalm 66: 8-9, 17, 20)

2. Prayer of Adoration: Blessed are you, Lord God, King of the universe. In your wisdom you have made all creation to worship you. You call us to worship you now in this time and place, in unity with all your children from all places. We pray that you will quiet our hearts as we prepare to worship, so we may hear your voice in the songs that we sing and the reading of your Word. May this morning worship help us to offer our entire lives to you. We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

3. Adoration: My Heart Will Praise You, Lord (我要全心赞美) 

 Listen To My Heart (倾听我的心)

 Spirit Of The Living God (来复兴我)

4. Scripture Reading: John 14:15-21

5. Take Time to Reflect:

What did Jesus promise to His disciples? Who is the another Counselor/Advocate in 14:16? Why is the “Counselor” important to you? How does the “Counselor” work in you?

6. Important Points:

In this passage, Jesus was at the end of His ministry on earth. He assured His disciples that God the Father and Him will not leave them alone to face with the challenges they will be facing. Jesus knew that life for His disciples would be overwhelming and complicated. Therefore, Jesus told His disciples that the Father will give them another Counselor, the Holy Spirit, to be with them (14:16).

We too are not exempted from life’s challenges, we also faced with daily issues that overwhelmed us. These daily issues, consequently, may threaten to separate us from God the Father and Jesus the Son. We need to thank God for giving us the Holy Spirit which is able to help us. How does the Holy Spirit help us?

I) The Holy Spirit Helps Us to Know That God Is Our Help (14:16)

When we are tired, depressed, and on the verge of giving up, we are thankful that God is always there to encourage and help us. For Jesus says He will ask the Father to send another “Counselor”, which is the Holy Spirit. And Holy Spirit is the One who comes alongside us, who encourages us, who comforts us or helps us. He will whisper to us: “You can make it, don’t give up. Though Jesus is not physically with you here and now, He is for you. God is for you!”

II) The Holy Spirit Helps Us to Know That God Is With Us (14:16-18, 21)

God will not leave us nor forsake us. He will not abandon us as orphans. When we accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord, God comes to us through His Spirit and stay with us. We don’t see God, and we don’t always feel Him, but He’s always there, working in our hearts. Isn’t it a great comfort to know that God is with us, He is always there for us when we needed Him. We don’t have to face with life circumstances alone, for God is with us.

III) The Holy Spirit Helps Us to Know That God Is Living In Us (14:17)

When we have the Spirit of God living in us, we are able to do great things. This happened to the disciples at the Pentecost where they found themselves doing things they could have never done before. Therefore, when God lives in us through His Spirit, He convicts us of sin, reassures us of our salvation, helps us to resist temptation, reminds us of God’s presence, comforts us, gives us the words we need to defend our faith and the courage we need to share our faith.

We are not alone because we have the Holy Spirit in us. This is Jesus’ promise and gift to all who believe and follow Him. The coming of the Holy Spirit is God’s presence in our lives. He is here to help us, be with us, and live in us. We can be assured that, even in the midst of overpowering difficulties, we have a Father who loves us, a Savior who triumphed over death, and the Holy Spirit who has been called to our side to help us.

7. Unison Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for sending the Holy Spirit to dwell in us. Through the Holy Spirit, we know that You are always with us and You are helping us not to give up when life is difficult. We also thankful for in life circumstances we are never alone, because You are with us. We also know that by having Your Spirit living in us, we’re able to do great things for You, hence giving glory to You. Lord, we thank You and may You teach us not to take Your presence for granted and help us not to grieve your Holy Spirit. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

8. Offering, Thanksgiving and Intercession Time: (Share one thankful matter and a prayer request, give thanks and pray for each other. Then offering maybe received.)

9. Closing Song: Spirit Song (O Let The Son Of God Enfold You) 

     哦,愿神的儿子围绕你

10. Closing Prayer: O Lord, grant that what has been said with our lips we may believe in our hearts, and what we believe in our hearts we may walk in our daily lives, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
