我们同心颂赞 With one mind we praise

Acts 4:23-26

23彼得和约翰被释放了之后,回到自己的人那里去,把祭司长和长老说的一切,都告诉他们。24他们听了,就同心向上帝高声说:主啊,你是那创造天地、海洋和其中万物的主宰。25你曾以圣灵藉着你仆人我们祖先大卫的口说:列国为什么骚动?万民为什么空谋妄想?26地上的君王都起来,首领聚在一起,敌对主和他的受膏者。

23 On their release, Peter and John went back to their own people and reported all that the chief priests and the elders had said to them. 24 When they heard this, they raised their voices together in prayer to God. “Sovereign Lord,” they said, “you made the heavens and the earth and the sea, and everything in them. 25 You spoke by the Holy Spirit through the mouth of your servant, our father David: “Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? 26 The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed one.

 

重点学习

我们的祷告蒙上帝悦纳,必须倚靠上帝的应许和大能,我们也必须带着盼望祈祷,相信我们会得到我们所求的。来到上帝面前,并且相信祂既愿意也能够帮助我们,是我们信心的唯一根据。

我们也应该记得上帝创造了天地万物,所以这一切都归上帝主宰,是上帝的旨意在统治这世界。所以即便这世界做完了它想要做的事,除非上帝的旨意如此,否则什么事也不会发生。

这里的教导也有助于我们不被自身的恐惧吞噬了。同时,我们必须小心,不要蔑视神圣的教训,以免我们与上帝作对而毁灭了自己。

When we pray, our prayers are only acceptable to God when we rely on his promises and power, when we pray in certain hope to receive what we are praying for. There is no other basis for confidence than coming to God and trusting that he is ready and able to help us.

We also note that we should consider the creation of the world so that we may realize that everything is subject to God and ruled by his will and that when the world has done what it may, nothing happens other than what God decrees.

The teaching also helps us not to be overcome by all the fears we have. Also, we must take care that we do not hold holy teaching in contempt, in case we set ourselves up against God and destroy ourselves.
