  1. Colossians 3:16
    16 Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. (NLT)

    16 Let the Word of Christ – the Message – have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct and direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing your hearts out to God! (MSG)

  2. God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.
    So we will not fear when earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea.
    Let the oceans roar and foam. Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge! Interlude
    A river brings joy to the city of our God, the sacred home of the Most High.
    God dwells in that city; it cannot be destroyed. From the very break of day, God will protect it.
    The nations are in chaos, and their kingdoms crumble! God’s voice thunders, and the earth melts!
    The LORD of Heaven’s Armies is here among us; the God of Israel is our fortress. Interlude
    Come, see the glorious works of the LORD : See how he brings destruction upon the world.
    He causes wars to end throughout the earth. He breaks the bow and snaps the spear; he burns the shields with fire.
    10 “Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.”
    11 The LORD of Heaven’s Armies is here among us; the God of Israel is our fortress. Interlude
    ——Psalms 46 (NLT)

  3. You must remove the old yeast of sin so that you will be entirely pure. Then you will be like a new batch of dough without any yeast, as indeed I know you actually are. For our Passover Festival is ready, now that Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.
    Let us celebrate our Passover, then, not with bread having the old yeast of sin and wickedness, but with the bread that has no yeast, the bread of purity and truth.
    ——1 Corinthians 5:7-8 (GNT)

  4. 1 Corinthians 13:12
    12 What we see now is like a dim image in a mirror; then we shall see face-to-face. What I know now is only partial; then it will be complete – as complete as God’s knowledge of me. (GNT)
    12 Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. (NLT)
    12 We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! (MSG)

  5. 22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.
    ——Galatians 5:22-23 (AMP)

    9 [m]Love must be free of hypocrisy. Detest what is evil; cling to what is good. 
    10 Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; [n]give preference to one another in honor, 
    11 not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; 
    12 rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, 
    13 contributing to the needs of the [o]saints, [p]practicing hospitality.
    ——Romans 12:9-13 (NASB)

    m. Or Love has no
    n. Or outdo one another in showing honor
    o. Lit holy ones; i.e., God’s people
    p. Lit pursuing

  6. 20 He answered, “Because of your little faith [your lack of trust and confidence in the power of God]; for I assure you and most solemnly say to you, [a]if you have [living] faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and [if it is God’s will] it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.
    ——Matthew 17:20 (AMP)

    a. Jesus used this moment to emphasize to the disciples that a person’s confident, abiding faith combined with God’s power can produce absolutely amazing results, if the request is in harmony with God’s will. God is fully capable of doing that which man regards as impossible (Mark 14:36; James 4:3).

  7. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
    ——Hebrews 4:16 (KJV)

Prayer, 25 March 2023

阿爸天父,感谢你,感谢你作我的避难所! 你是窑匠,我是泥,我是你手的工作,除你以外,别无拯救。因为在天下人间,没有赐下别的名,我可以靠着得救。我向你承认自己的罪和软弱,不再隐瞒自己的恶。你将我稳固地栽在溪水旁,你的圣灵使我耳目一新,并赋予我力量。感谢你借着耶稣和你的灵用活水在属灵上更新我的灵魂,你的话正在洁净我,即便是在干旱时节,我有你清新的活水。你是我的父,请引导我以你所喜悦的方式活出你的平安和圣洁。我的肺腑是你所造的。我在母腹中,你已覆庇我。我要称谢你,因我受造奇妙可畏。你的作为奇妙,这是我心深知道的。求神的怜悯和帮助,我祈求我要在我救主耶稣基督的恩典和知识上有长进。愿荣耀归给上帝,从今直到永远。
