安靜
1.  停下來. 靜一靜
2.  等候主. 深呼吸經歷主之平安. 呼出你的憂慮

讚美及感恩
1.  思想你上星期使你開心歡笑的時刻
2.  為那些時刻及有關的人感恩
3.  敞開心懷讚美主

     我 們 的 心 向 來 等 候 耶 和 華 ; 他 是 我 們 的 幫 助 , 我 們 的 盾 牌 。
21 我 們 的 心 必 靠 他 歡 喜 , 因 為 我 們 向 來 倚 靠 他 的 聖 名 。

                                                                            詩篇 33: 20-21                                                 

認罪悔改  
1.  求聖靈在你生命中工作
      "親愛的聖靈, 求你光照我心靈的深處, 使我看見我的罪, 我和主耶穌的阻隔,
        求主幫助, 奉主耶穌基督名求。阿們。"

2. 透過聖靈的工作, 安靜一刻, 省察自己, 之後祈禱:
     「親愛的主耶穌,感謝你為我的罪釘死在十字架上,我願意在你面前承認我的罪(凡聖靈光照到的,請逐一說出),求你用你的寶血赦免我的罪,我願意打開心門讓你作我的救主,求你救贖我,我願意一生跟隨你讓你作我生命的主,求你帶領我。聖靈,求你充滿我,使我得著恩賜及力量去事奉主、見證主。奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。」


聆聽主話
Please click this link to read Exodus 26:1-27:19:


要 謹 慎 做 這 些 物 件 , 都 要 照 著 在 山 上 指 示 你 的 樣 式 。出埃及記 25:40

要 照 著 在 山 上 指 示 你 的 樣 式 立 起 帳 幕 。                      出埃及記 26:30

要 用 板 做 壇 , 壇 是 空 的 , 都 照 著 在 山 上 指 示 你 的 樣 式 作 。出埃及記 27:8

現在讓你有一段安靜的時間, 給聖靈一個空間, 讓主耶穌可能以藉着你剛才讀過的經文, 對你說話:


我的聆聽
昨天的經文我們看到神如何吩咐以色列人為祂的聖所(會幕)預備一切。

當一群基督徒或一個教會去建造教堂時,往往出現一些很複雜的問題。很多你可以想到的或不能想象的計劃,政策及各種運動都會發生。我見過很多教會要建造教堂時出現了很多爭議,懷疑,憤怒,分裂,及分離。我們可以做得好一些嗎? 神想我們怎樣去建造一個教堂呢?

表面上來看,出埃及記25至27章是很複雜的要求。如果是你,是否會問很多懷疑的問題呢?
複雜的要求的背後, 卻是一個簡單無比的方法:
1.  首先, 呼召及推動所有人獻上金錢(禮物)及才能。
2.  跟着神給祂僕人的計劃。

就是這樣, 夠簡單嗎?

但你知不知道那些以色列人跟隨摩西經歷了多少神蹟奇事才有這信心願意奉獻禮物及才能? 你知不知道神用了多少奇妙的方法使以色列人相信摩西是神的僕人, 以致可以有這信心跟着他在山上領受的樣式(藍圖)去照做?

如何建造一個教堂? 二個字: 信, 奉獻
你需要完全相信神的僕人, 跟着他們的樣式(計劃或者藍圖), 願意奉獻金錢與才能。

你相信及作你的奉獻。事就這樣成了。

親愛的主耶穌,
帶領我們願意相信你的僕人及他們的計劃。賜我們一顆奉獻自己的金錢與才能的心, 使你的身體亦即教會能被建造, 使你的名得榮耀奉主耶穌基督名求, 阿們。

省察問題
1. 你見過因建堂而發生的壞事嗎? 發生甚麼事? 為何?  

2. 你同意今日的信息, 建堂實在是很容易一件事嗎? 為何很多人將建堂的事弄得很複雜,很難做呢?

3. 你今天學到一些甚麼功課, 使你可以幫助你自己的教會建堂,又或者建立人心?


感恩讚美
讓我們為神同在感恩讚美主:

Silence

1.   Put on your “brakes” and stop for a moment of silence
2.   Wait for God. Breathe deep for God's peace. Exhale your worries.

Praise and Thanksgiving

1.   Think through your day, all the times that made you smile
2.   Thank God for all those moments, and for all those people
3.   Open your heart to praise the Lord

      Our soul waits for the Lord;
             he is our help and our shield.
21         For our heart is glad in him,
            because we trust in his holy name.
                                                         Psalm 33:20-21
                                                                       
Confession and repentance

1.  Pray for the Holy Spirit to work in you:

     “Dear Holy Spirit, shine your light into the places of darkness in my life. Show me my sins, everything that blocks me from encountering God. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”

2.  Through the Holy Spirit, examine yourself for a short silence and then pray:

     "Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for our sins and being victorious over death and sin. I confess my sin to you(pause, to tell Jesus what the Holy Spirit has shown you). Forgive my sins by your blood and help me follow you. Holy Spirit, fill me that I may be able to receive your gift to love God and His people. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."

The Word (Please read Exodus chapter 25)


Please click this link to read Exodus 26:1-27:19



And see that you make them after the pattern for them, which is being shown you on the mountain.                             Exodus 25:40

And see that you make them after the pattern for them, which is being shown you on the mountain.                             Exodus 26:30

You shall make it hollow, with boards. As it has been shown you on the mountain, so shall it be made.                           Exodus 27:8

Let's have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passage of scripture we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him, while listening to "Gabriel's Oboe"

My Listening
      We start yesterday to see how God commands the Israelites to prepare a sanctuary for God, the Tabernacle. 

      Do you know how complicated it can get to when Christians wants to build a church. Lots of planning, strategy, campaigns and everything you can think of or can't think of. I have seen so many argument, doubt, anger, division and separation when a group of Christians start to build a church. Can we do it better? What do you think God wants His people to do in order that they can build a church?

      It seems that from chapter 25 to 27 is so complicated. If it were you, would you ask why this and why that? In fact, it is simple. We can learn a very simple model here:
1.   First, it all starts from calling and motivating all people to offer their money and abilities as we learn from yesterday's passage.

2.   Second, follow the pattern shown by God to His servant(s).

      That's all! So simple!
      But, do you know how miraculously the Israelites had experienced to make them willing to offer their money and abilities? Do you know how many things happened to Moses to make the Israelites to believe that Moses is God's servant and be willing to follow the pattern he said he received in the mountain?

      How to build a church? In two words: TRUST , OFFERING
      You need to totally trust God's servants, follow their plans and be willing to offer your money and abilities. 

      You trust and make your offerings. Done!

Dear Lord Jesus,
      Lead us to be willing to trust your servants and their plan. Give us the heart to offer to you our money and abilities so that your church can be built and your Name will be glorified.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.  

Reflect on these questions:
1. Have you seen bad things happened when a group of Christians want to build a church? What happened? Why?

2.  Do you agree with the message today that to build a church actually is so simple? Why people always make it so difficult and complicated? 

3.  What have you learned from today's passage so that you can help your church to build up, no matter church building or the hearts of people?


Praise and Thanksgiving
Let's give thanks for God with us. Let us praise Him:
