《題目分享》

(1)試著假想你全家都是2500年前的選民,對於歸回與重建,你們會用怎樣的態度與行動來回應呢?

(2)本週信息對在恢復以神為中心的事奉與敬拜上有三點提醒

j純─真以神為中心k廣─全民皆參與l深─用心靈和誠實

背誦經文

(林前316-17)

豈不知你們是神的殿,神的靈住在你們裡頭麼。若有人毀壞神的殿,神必要毀壞那人,因為神的殿是聖的,這殿就是你們。

 

 

Message: Returning, Rebuilding and Revival (V) - Rebuild the Temple

Speaker: Brother Yu
 

Scriptures: Ezra 3:7-13, 6:16-22; II Ch 2:4-6, 3:1; I Co 3:16,17

 

I. The Important Significance of the Temple

 

1. It is a dwelling place established by God (II Ch 6:20; Ep 2:21,22)

 
 

2. It is a place for people to serve and to worship God

 
 

3. It is a place for the manifestation of God's glory

 

II. Rebuild the Temple - restore God-centered service and worship

 

1. God is the center - God is our all; the center, the purpose and the content of our meetings, our living and our services

 
 

2. Participation of all people

a. Freewill offerings of building material (Ezra 3:7)

b. Building in one accord - ...all who came from the captivity to Jerusalem, began the work ...(Ezra 3:8)

c. They sang, praising and giving thanks ... all the people shouted with a great shout (Ezra 3:11)

 
 

3. In Spirit and Truth - a great shout, wept with a loud voice, and shouted aloud for joy

 
 

4. The hindrance and trial of rebuilding (please read Ezra 4 to 6 for next message)

 
 

5. Recovering of the service of all people (Ezra 6:16-22)

 

Our Quest together:

1) Imagine your entire house were living in 2500 years ago, how would you respond to God's calling you to "return" and "rebuild"?

 

2) Could you share on the one thing that we may break through or improve for our current service and worship? What shall be changed? How do we improve?

 

The three points of restoring the God-centered service and worship:

1) Pure - truly be God-centered

2) Breadth - the service of all people

3) Depth - in spirit and in truth
