Title: Come, bless the LORD, all you servants of the LORD.
Author: Pastor Wallace Ong

Psalm 134: 1 – 3
A Song of Ascents.

1 Come, bless the LORD, all you servants of the LORD,
who stand by night in the house of the LORD!
2 Lift up your hands to the holy place
and bless the LORD!
3 May the LORD bless you from Zion,
he who made heaven and earth!

As Christians, we are called to be “servants of Christ.” What a joy and privilege to have God who made heaven and earth as our Lord! He knows how stubborn and imperfect we can be, He understands our hearts were wicked and prone to wander, and yet Christ died for us while we were still sinners.

It is truly a privilege, and wonderful to be the servant of the Lord MOST HIGH because He is the perfect King and God who loves us so dearly. We receive true peace in our heart, joy in our everyday living, and love abundance. We can then love, give and serve others with the love that He has bestowed upon us, and have the strength to forgive and forget the actions of those who were unkind to us.

When we come to our Lord and stand in His house, lift up our hands to the holy place of Zion and bless Him. This will help us constantly look to Him, adore Him, yield to the Holy Spirit, and He will enable us to bear good fruit.

As we consistently and daily abide in Him, we will find ourselves growing closer to Him, becoming stronger in faith, and feeling more secure in our relationship with Him. When we are filled with His love, joy, peace, and strength, we will be able to become His light and salt of this world, serving others with good works that glorify HIM.

Prayer:
Dear Heavenly Father, we are so thankful that we have been given the opportunity to be Your servant as well as Your children. As we see Your absolute and glorious attributes, we realized how far we have fallen short, and in so many ways. We thank You for Your continuous forgiveness and mercy. O Lord, give us a willing heart to accept and be led by Your Spirit. Guide us and teach us the way to serve You wholeheartedly. Thank You for what Jesus had done on the cross and Your way of redemption revealed in the Gospel. Strengthen our faith, O God, and use us in Your will to help others. Take away our selfishness and fill us with Your love and compassion. We pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

标题:耶和华的仆人,你们当称颂耶和华
作者:王振威传道
翻译:陈健萍姐妹

【诗篇134:1-3】
〔上行之诗。〕

1 耶和华的仆人、夜间站在耶和华殿中的、你们当称颂耶和华。
2 你们当向圣所举手、称颂耶和华。
3 愿造天地的耶和华、从锡安赐福给你们。

身为基督徒,我们被呼召作 “基督的仆人”。有造天地的上帝为我们的主,是何等的喜乐和荣幸!祂知道我们有多顽梗和不完美,祂知道我们的心邪恶,且易于放荡,然而基督却在我们还是罪人的时候就为我们死了。

能成为至高的主的仆人,着实是一种特权,而且实在太美妙了,因为祂是完美的君王,是非常爱我们的上帝。我们心中得到真正的平安,日常生活中得到喜乐,在爱中也富足。我们进而
可以上帝赋予我们的爱去爱、给予和服事他人,并有力量去原谅和忘记那些对我们不和善的人的行径。

我们来到我们的主前,站在祂的殿中,就当向锡安的圣所举手,赞颂祂。这将有助于我们不断地仰望祂、崇拜祂、顺服圣灵,祂将使我们结出好果子。

当我们持续地每天住在祂里面时,我们会发现自己与祂越来越亲近,在信心上变得更坚定,在与祂的关系中感到更安稳。当我们被祂的爱、喜乐、平安和力量充满时,我们就能成为祂在这世上的光和盐,以荣耀祂的善行来服事他人。

祷告:
亲爱的天父,我们非常感恩我们不仅是祢的孩子,也有机会成为祢的仆人。当我们看见祢的绝对性和荣美的属性时,我们便意识到我们在很多方面的亏缺。我们感谢祢不断的宽恕和怜悯。主啊,求祢赐我们一颗愿意接受祢的灵并被祢的灵引导的心。指引我们并教导我们如何全心全意地事奉祢。我们为耶稣在十字架上所作的一切,以及祢在福音中所启示的救赎之道而感谢祢。上帝阿,坚定我们的信心,使用我们在祢的旨意中帮助别人。求除去我们的自私,以祢的爱和怜悯充满我们。我们奉耶稣的名祈祷。阿门。
