經文:( 8:415:1-8) 5:16,來3:13, 約9:4,約12:35-36,太26:7

Scriptures: (Romans 8:4, John 15:1-8) Ephesians 5:16, Hebrews 3:13, John 9:4, John 12:35-36, Matthew 26:7

背誦  22 你們要行道,不要單單聽道,自己欺哄自己。 23 因為聽道而不行道的,就像人對著鏡子看自己本來的面目, 24 看見,走後,隨即忘了他的相貌如何。 25 惟有詳細察看那全備、使人自由之律法的,並且時常如此,這人既不是聽了就忘,乃是實在行出來,就在他所行的事上必然得福( 1:22-25)

Memory Verse: But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does. (James 1:22-25)
