MARCH VERSE RECITE

Pick 5 verses from your March Bible reading plan, and memories God’s words. Here are my picks from James and John!


James 1:6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 可是,他应该凭着信心祈求,不要有疑惑;因为疑惑的人,就像被风吹荡翻腾的海浪。


James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. 26 身体没有灵魂是死的,照样,信心没有行为也是死的。


John 6:35 And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.  35 耶稣说:“我就是生命的食物,到我这里来的,必定不饿;信我的,永远不渴。


John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” 34 我给你们一条新命令,就是要你们彼此相爱;我怎样爱你们,你们也要怎样彼此相爱。 35 如果你们彼此相爱,众人就会认出你们是我的门徒了。”


John 14:6-7 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”  耶稣对他说:“我就是道路、真理、生命,如果不是借着我,没有人能到父那里去。 如果你们认识我,就必认识我的父;从今以后,你们认识他,并且看见了他。”


John 15: 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 19 你们若属于这世界,世人必定爱属自己的;但因为你们不属于世界,而是我从世界中拣选了你们,所以世人就恨你们。

James

Can someone tell me why James is called Jacob in Chinese Bible? In order to have a good visualization, I noted my thoughts on the screenshots of the Bible verses.  I hope you enjoy reading this short Book. Please, let me know why James is called Jacob in Chinese Bible?

因为雅各书很短,我直接截屏然后在屏幕上面做了笔记。 Continue reading

Psalms 26-40

I can “hear” so many beautiful worship songs coming from the book of Psalms. Good job David the king.

【 Psalms 27:1 】The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?

【Psalms 27:13】I would have lost heart, unless I had believed; That I would see the goodness of the Lord; In the land of the living.

【Psalms 30:5】For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.

【Psalms 34:18】The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit.

【Psalms 39:6】世人来来往往只是幻影,他们忙乱也是虚空;积聚财物,却不知道谁要来收取。

【Psalms 40:11-12】11 耶和华啊!求你的怜悯不要向我止息; 愿你的慈爱和诚实常常保护我。12 因有无数的祸患围绕着我;我的罪孽追上了我,使我不能看见;它们比我的头发还多,以致我心惊胆战。

;)【Alone yet not alone】. This is a song touching my heart. Let me sing this song for you,

Deuteronomy

作者依旧是摩西,开篇的主角也是摩西,他来和以色列人讲上帝要他将给以色列人听的话。荒野里四十年的流浪结束啦,上帝说不许进入应许之地的人也都歇菜了。摩西叫以色列人转方向去占领耶和华应许之地。摩西说了很多话,我就想,摩西应该有秘书帮他把这些都记下来吧?不然他怎么能清楚地记得他说了什么?因为他真的说了很多很多很多!摩西把利未记和民数计里的故事重点又强调了一下。呵呵,在场的以色列人应该都不好意思了吧,毕竟摩西提到那么多他们以前的不顺从。接着,摩西又提到了之前征战的一些细节,过程,还有神的恩赐。随后,摩西详细强调了律法的细节(非常精彩!第22章又让我开眼界了,我就喜欢看圣经讲关于贞操的内容),特别是强调了不可随便拜别的神,并讲解了接下来攻打帝国的注意事项和。这里提到的律法和诫命更让我叹为观止。摩西想要去看约旦河西的美地,但是耶和华不给。(oh….awwwhhhh)【感觉前面的利未记和民数计白看了。这里直接全部总结了一遍。】到最后第三十二章,摩西写了首歌,祝福了以色列各个支派,然后归到列祖那里去了。 完~

Calling!

I highly recommend you to use biblegateway.com when you are reading the Bible. This website can displace many translations of the same book on the screen. I tried four different translations at the same time. The reason for you to have more than one translation is that you may have a better understanding of the verse. You don’t have to read all different translations, but you can have supplements when you run into questions. Same concept as the cross reference.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=%E7%94%B3%E5%91%BD%E8%AE%B0%201&version=CNVT;NKJV;NIV;CUV

I felt like I should expand the explanations of cross reference, for those who just started to study the bible. 并且我觉得应该用中文来讲解,因为在美国的文化背景下,很多和圣经相关的知识都是代代相传,所以用英文讲解的意义不大。但在中国,圣经知识的普及并不是这样普遍。教育程度的差异大大的形成了两种基督徒学习圣经的方式。教育程度高的基督徒拥有训练好的学习方式,使他们可以追求对经文,对圣经,对整个基督教更加细致的理解,这和大多数学科尖端是一样的,精益求精变成了一种超越精神层次的追求。在这个端点的基督徒会运用他们的技能,大量的渴求外来的,外语的,甚至是希腊语的基督教相关的知识。教育程度低的基督徒往往局限在对于学习工具的使用上。比如他们不懂外语,学习资料就局限在中文的读物。比如说他们不擅长使用网络搜索,他们能了解的基督教相关的发展和前景就局限了在了本地教会。我说的是普遍状况,不是完全的归纳。这些相互影响的因素环环相扣,我们就会发现,在大城市,教育程度高的群体中,学习圣经的方式层出不穷。但在乡下农村教育程度极低的地区,圣经可能只是比律法多了一层含义:谁提出的要求,为什么提出,遵守后会有什么回报。

当然,不排开很多不同宗派的基督徒对于学习圣经的重视性,有些基督徒可能觉得读经只是可有可无的。基督教,这个信仰是每一个人和神的关系,是自己的选择,是自己的承诺。我觉得出于尊重,每个人做的决定,没有什么所谓的对错。我只希望能鼓励大家一起来读经,完成和神承诺了的事情。 就像是修一门课,你没有写完作业会很着急会很紧张。你最后上完了这门课会很有收获。为着你学到的知识和你完成的课业你可能会心满意足,完全不在意之前焦躁的过程。我希望2016年把圣经读一遍的过程也能是这样果实累累。

是的,写到最后,我还是没有讲解,什么是cross reference。 :DDDDD
“Hey Siri, what does cross reference mean?”

John

这是一本前所未有难以理解的福音书。第一次阅读这本书,所以在阅读的过程中我十分的纠结。因为我从来没有在其他的福音书里面读到过耶稣的心理状态。在其他福音书里,我记得深刻的就是耶稣说:你们这些小信的人呐。可在这本福音书里,我读到了耶稣洞察人心后的无奈,伤心,和他对自己命运和死亡的坦然和顺服。

我没有敢仔细把这本福音书读下来。我害怕。我总是害怕。明明在圣经里说了,来自圣灵的力量,有神做盾牌,不要害怕。以前我不会把害怕挂在嘴边,死的动物,恶心的画面,鬼片,或者灵异片我都是一概宣称我不怕。但,自从那次帮别人deliverence,自从真的知道撒旦的存在, 真的感受到害怕的感觉之后,我便把这两字挂在了嘴边。

神啊,请给我力量,让我克服掉这样的恐惧。

如果 你 碰巧也在读约翰福音,如果你也有触动,我会为你祷告,让神打开你的耳朵,使你能明白其中的奥秘。如果你不明白,不要紧,不着急,马太福音7:7怎么说的,神就如何的赐给你。

让我分享一下我觉得精彩的章节,还有关于耶稣所爱的门徒的这个有趣的细节。 Continue reading

Proverbs 1-5

It is really hard not to pause when I read Proverbs. So much Wisdom!

Proverbs 1 emphasizes the author and why shall we read the Proverbs, why shall we avoid evil counsel, and why shall we listen to the call of wisdom. “But whoever listens to me will dwell safely, And will be secure, without fear of evil.”
箴言第一篇的开头六句话讲诉了箴言的作者和功用,然后强调了不要受恶人的诱惑,并且要听智慧的呼唤的重要性。“唯有听从我的,必安然居住,得享安宁,免受灾祸的惊恐。”
The value of wisdom is followed in Proverbs 2. It describes how wisdom reveals God and how wisdom teaches us the righteousness.
箴言第二篇讲述了智慧如何使人认识神又如何使人行走义路。
In Proverb 3, Yahweh and His glory are mentioned, and we shall not forget who our God is. His wisdom is greater than gold or diamond.
箴言的第三篇顺着逻辑嘱咐了读者不要忘记耶和华Yahweh. (来自神的)智慧是比金钱更加贵重的财富,因为它使我们得尊荣。
Because His wisdom is so valuable, Solomon reminds us the difficulties and necessities for us to keep His wisdom in mind.
正因为它如此重要,在第四篇里,所罗门再次强调了跟着神走在光明中不被左右的困难和必要,所以我们要遵行智慧的话语。
Oh, Babe, you read this chapter, please.
箴言第五篇 专注在妇女的吸引力上。乖乖,真是棒极了。我好想读一遍给你听,但我嗓子哑了。

我有计划今年把圣经读一遍,明年把箴言背一遍。一个月背一遍,十二遍下来,该记住一些了吧!

推荐几个APP。两个。屏幕快照 2016-03-08 下午8.43.31.png
