LoveStrong 堅定付出愛

 

     Love is a word we hear all the time. We love ice cream; we love sports; and we love our children. This same word - love - is used, but it does now mean the same thing. Our love of ice cream is not the same as our love for our children. What kind of love do we find in the Scripture passage?

        我們常聽到愛這個字。愛冰淇淋、愛運動、愛兒女。我們常常提到愛,但是所指的意義卻不相同。我們對冰淇淋的愛,跟我們對兒女的愛不一樣。我們從聖經裡又找到什麼樣的愛呢?

 

We find a love that leads to action. God's love for us led Him to action. He gave His own Son so that we could be in relationship with Him. Because of God's great love for us we must give our lives for each other. We must take action when we see a need.

       我們發現一種付諸於行動的愛。神愛我們,因此祂付諸於行動,祂賜下自己的獨生子,好讓我們能與祂建立關係,神對我們的愛是如此偉大,所以我們必須彼此捨命。我們看到有需要的時候,一定要付諸於行動。

 

    Each of us sees needs all around us. Pray that God will cause compassion to grow within you and you will be led to action. One action you can do right now where you are is to pray for these needs.

       我們每一個人都會看到身旁的需要,求神使我們內心生出憐憫,並將憐憫之心付諸於行動。此時此地你能付出的一個行動,就是為這些需要來禱告。

 

1. The Welcome Hope Center, in Amarillo, Texas. Pray for the volunteers and families with loved ones in prison that hope in Christ will be the message given and received.

一、位於德州阿馬里洛市的迎接希望中心 (The Welcome Hope Center, Amarillo, Texas),為中心的志工及獄中服刑者的家人代禱,讓基督所賜的盼望能被傳出去,也讓服刑者能接受這份在基督裡的盼望。

 

2. Christian Women's Job Corps. Pray for volunteers and students who are working together to improve their lives and create better opportunities for themselves and their families. Pray the love of Christ will be experienced in ways that change lives.

二、基督徒婦女就業培訓隊(Christian Women's Job Corps),為志工及學生們禱告,他們正在共同努力改進生活,並為自己及家人創造更好的機會。願基督的愛能帶來生命的改變。

 

    LoveStrong - in your words and in your actions!

       堅定付出愛-不但在言語上,也要付諸於行動!

LoveStrong 堅定付出愛

 

    Last week we talked about Love, so this week let's focus on Strong. When we think about strong, do we think about muscles that are strong? Do we think about smells that are strong? Do we think about feelings that are strong? No matter how we think about strong, the one thing about strong is it is able to cause a reaction. Muscles that are strong can move things. Smells that are strong can make us want to eat or not eat depending on the smell. Feelings that are strong can make us move around the world to follow a dream or stay at home to care for a loved one. Strong causes action.

  上一週我們談到愛,而這一週讓我們著重於堅定。我們想到堅定的時候,會不會想到強壯的肌肉?強烈的氣味?強烈的感覺?不論我們會想到什麼,跟堅定有關的一件事情就是要能夠造成行動。強壯的肌肉可以移動東西,強烈的氣味可以使我們產生食慾或失去食慾,強烈的感覺可以使我們帶著夢想環遊世界,或是待在家裡照顧心愛的人。堅定的心會帶出行動。

 

    So when love is strong what action does it cause? The bible tells us that God's strong love caused Him to sacrifice His son for us. It also says that when we say we love God, we too will have a love that will sacrifice for others. Who would God have you to love? Who in your community needs you to LoveStrong?

  那麼堅定的愛會帶出什麼樣的行動呢?聖經告訴我們,神對我們有堅定的愛,因此祂為我們犠牲了祂的獨生子,聖經還提到,若我們說愛神,就也會有願意為別人犠牲的愛。神要你去愛誰呢?在你所居住的社區內,有誰需要你去堅定付出愛呢?

 

    You can start by praying.

  你可以從禱告開始-

 

1. Please pray for the Cowboy churches. They are reaching out to the unchurched in our state sharing the Gospel. Pray they stay strong in their message of love.

一、為牛仔教會禱告。他們正在向德州那些不去教會的人傳福音。求神幫助他們堅定地來傳達愛的信息。

 

2. Pray also for the refugees who come to Texas each day. Pray for the volunteers who reach out in friendship and God's love.

二、為每天來到德州的難民禱告。為那些在神的愛裡與他們建立友誼的志工們禱告。

 

    LoveStrong - in your words and in your actions!

       堅定付出愛-不但在言語上,也要付諸於行動!
