前言: 基督徒們清楚舊約作者喜愛律法. 本週的生活舉例是參考一個雜誌叫做   FoundryLeader.com它是專注於聖經律法的瞭解. 我們必須了解聖經就是神的話之

重要性因它朔造基督徒的信心與生活. 神的話對社區、識罪、約束和慶祝有大能力.

 

上週: 學到當我們面對敵人的時候,神是我們之力量的來源。

這週: 如何運用聖經上神的話,將學會榮耀神以回應之

          

1. 呼召眾人: 尼西米記 8:5-8, 5以斯拉站在眾民以上、在眾民眼前展開這書.

   一展開、眾民就都站起來。6 以斯拉稱頌耶和華至大的 神.眾民都舉手應聲

   說、阿們、阿們、就低頭、面伏於地、敬拜耶和華。7  耶書亞巴尼示利比

   雅憫亞谷沙比太荷第雅瑪西雅基利他亞撒利雅約撒拔哈難

   萊雅、和利未人、使百姓明白律法.百姓都站在自己的地方。8 他們清清楚楚的

   念 神的律法書、講明意思、使百姓明白所念的。

  解經: 尼西米 8:5-8, 耶路撒冷有安全的牆和門了, 百姓相聚聽神的話. 以斯拉大聲讀

  摩西律法書(v. 1). 無可疑的講到早期以色列祖先的故事, 是在聖經之前面五本書.

   書上告訴我們神是如何呼召亞伯拉罕, 釋放百姓從埃及出來, 教導他們神的律法,                

   以及引導他們經過曠野向應許之地.

 

   當日在耶路撒冷聽神的話語很是增強社區的結合. 這也可使他們分享故事. 整個家

   , “男與女和子女們, 帶到一起聽律法書的歷史故事 (v. 2) 令人起敬的站了六 

   小時, “從清晨到中午(v. 3). 整個上午, 以斯拉停時,利未 (祭司)接著解釋章節之

   意。這時, 讀經文移動整個會眾合一讚美神. 舉雙手象徵伸展到天上, 百姓都確證

   神的話的真實性就一齊說, “阿門!(v. 6). 於是, 他們敬禮以致敬經文作者與歷史.

 

如此情景顯示我們讀神的話語,可結合信徒之合一和能力. 意旨我們和歷史之救

贖都是一家人. 神曾為我們祖先的靈作工夫,也供應我們現在和將來有期望            

                                                                                           (Excerpts from the Faith Connection p. P.37, 38)                        2. 呼召慶祝: 尼西米 8:9:12, 9省長尼希米、和作祭司的文士以斯拉、並教訓百姓的利未人、對眾民說、今日是耶和華你們 神的聖日.不要悲哀哭泣.這是因為眾民     聽見律法書上的話都哭了。10 又對他們說、你們去喫肥美的、喝甘甜的、有不能  豫備的、就分給他.因為今日是我們主的聖日.你們不要憂愁、因靠耶和華而得  的喜樂是你們的力量。11 於是利未人使眾民靜默、說、今日是日.不要作聲、  也不要憂愁。12 眾民都去喫喝、也分給人、大大快樂、因為他們明白所教訓他們的話.                                                                                                                      解經: 尼西米8:9-12, 以斯拉提醒百姓喜樂勝過悲哀。呼召慶祝之原因 (v.2) 這是過節之呼召,是慶祝神的供應一年來之豐收經常我們慶祝給予(甚至是不太願意給), 我們的靈裡能會充滿喜樂,而進入榮耀神的慶祝。並讓神充滿祂的喜樂。這是一個 聖日是您因為神而特別分別出來的 (v 11) 所以,尼西米鼓勵百姓專心於那有期望的經文上。當我們讀經時就得到並認識創物主。我們學到神是 如何的仁慈和憐憫,和祂如何不斷地與我們同工.來造成我們可成為神創造我們之目標人物. 專心在神奇妙的恩典喚起 喜樂就給我們每日生活的 能力 (v.10.)                     (解參信仰之聯繫 38)  

3.  呼召認錯: 尼西米 9:1-3, 1 這月二十四日、以色列人聚集禁食、身穿麻衣、頭蒙灰     塵。2. 以色列人就與一切外邦人離絕、站著承認自己的罪惡、和列祖的罪孽。3 那日的四分之一、站在自己的地方、念耶和華他們 神的律法書.又四分之一認罪、敬拜耶和華他們的 神。             解經: 尼西米9:1-3, 1. 頭蒙灰塵於眾,並禁食,穿麻衣,乃是公開表示憂傷與悔改。2-3 , 希伯來人習慣公開認罪,彼此悔悟。認罪前,要先讀神的話,祂會藉此指明我們的罪。在敬拜之前,我們也先要認罪,因為罪會隔絕我們與神的關係                                   

                                                                                                           (參聖經靈修版P 842)

Preface: Christians are clear that the Old Testament writers took great delight in the law. This week’s illustrated Bible life podcast on FoundryLeader.com focuses on a biblical understanding of the law. We have to understand the importance of the written Word (God’s Word) in shaping the Christian life and faith. The Word of God calls us powerfully to community, confession, commitment, and celebration.

Last Week: We learned how God is our source of strength when we face opposition.

This week: We will learn the ways we can honor God by how we respond to the

                     instruction of His Word.

 

  1. The Call to Community: Nehemiah 8:5-8, 5 Ezra opened the book. All the people could see him because he was standing above them; and as he opened it, the people all stood up. 6 Ezra praised the LORD, the great God; and all the people lifted their hands and responded, "Amen! Amen!" Then they bowed down and worshiped the LORD with their faces to the ground. 7 The Levites--Jeshua, Bani, Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodiah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan and Pelaiah--instructed the people in the Law while the people were standing there. 8 They read from the Book of the Law of God, making it clear and giving the meaning so that the people could understand what was being read. 

Commentary: After the walls and gates of Jerusalem had been secured, people gathered to hear the word of the Lord. They asked Ezra to read aloud from “the Book of the Law of Moses” (v. 1). This undoubtedly refers to stories and laws of Israel’s early ancestors, which are found in the first five books of the Bible. They tell of how God called Abraham, redeemed His people from Egypt, instructed them with His laws, and led them through the wilderness toward the Promised Land.

 

Hearing these words strengthened the bonds of the community in Jerusalem that day. This was their shared story. Entire families, “both men and women” and their children, came together to hear the history of their people (v. 2). It was so compelling that they stood for six hours, “from daybreak till noon” (v. 3). Throughout the morning, Ezra paused at times while Levites took turns explaining the meaning of passages.

 

As such moments can do, the reading of Scripture moved the community to unite in praise to God. Lifting their hands in a gesture that symbolized reaching for heaven, the people affirmed the truth of God’s Word by declaring, “Amen” (v. 6). Then, they bowed down in honor of the Author of Scripture and of their history with Him.

 

Such a scene shows us how reading the Word of God strengthens bonds among believers. It reminds us that we are all part of the same family with a common heritage of redemption. God has worked in the lives of our spiritual ancestors in the past and offers us hope for the present as well as the future.                                    

                                                              (Excerpts from the Faith Connection p. P.37, 38)                                                

  1. The Call to Celebration: Nehemiah 8:9-12, 9 Then Nehemiah the governor, Ezra

the priest and scribe, and the Levites who were instructing the people said to them all, "This day is sacred to the LORD your God. Do not mourn or weep." For all the people had been weeping as they listened to the words of the Law. 10 Nehemiah said, "Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is sacred to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength." 11 The Levites calmed all the people, saying, "Be still, for this is a sacred day. Do not grieve." 12 Then all the people went away to eat and drink, to send portions of food and to celebrate with great joy, because they now understood the words that had been made known to them.

            Commentary: 8:9-12, Ezra admonished the people to rejoice rather than mourn.

            The reason he called for celebration was because they had gathered “on the first

            day of the seventh month” (v.2). This was the Feast of Trumpets, a time for

celebrating God’s provision in the annual harvest they had just gathered.  Often

when we celebrate and give to others (even when we don’t feel like it), we are

strengthened spiritually and filled with joy. Enter into celebrations that honor God,

and allow him to fill you with his joy. It was a “holy day,” a day set apart special

for God (v 11). So, Nehemiah encouraged his people to focus upon the hope

contained in God’s Word. As we read Scripture, we get to know the Creator of

life.  

We learn of how gracious and forgiving God is, how He constantly works with us

to make us into the persons He created us to be. Focusing on such amazing grace

evokes “joy,” which gives us “strength” for everyday life (v.10).                  

                                                                                           (Excerpts from the Faith Connection p.38 & p.978 of N.I.V.)                                                                     

 

  1. The Call to Confession: Nehemiah 9:1-3, 1 On the twenty-fourth day of the same month, the Israelites gathered together, fasting and wearing sackcloth and having dust on their heads. 2 Those of Israelite descent had separated themselves from all foreigners. They stood in their places and confessed their sins and the wickedness of their fathers. 3 They stood where they were and read from the Book of the Law of the LORD their God for a quarter of the day and spent another quarter in confession and in worshiping the LORD their God. 

Commentary: Nehemiah 9:1-3, Eating, wearing sackcloth, and putting dust on the head

      were public signs of sorrow and repentance (v.1).  The Hebrews practiced open

confession, admitting their sins to one another. Reading and studying God’s Word

should precede confession (see 8:18) because God can show us where we are sinning. Honest confession should precede worship, because we cannot have a right relationship with God if we hold on the certain sins. (v.2-3). (p.979 of N.I.V.)                                               

 

     4.  CONCLUSIONS:

   1). The Call to Community: Nehemiah 8:5-8, In prayer and praise, Ps. 28:2; 63:4;  

         134:2; 141:2; 143:6; 1Ti.2:8.

   2). The Call to Celebration: Nehemiah 8:9-12, Joy promised to believers, Ps.16:11;  

         30:5; 126:5; 132:16; Isa. 12:3; Jn 16:24; Ro. 14:17.

   3). The Call to Confession: Nehemiah 9:1-3, Confession of Sin, Pr. 28:13; 1Jn 1:9.
