03:13
Indeed, we have faced a lot of disappointment 造成失望 I really like Pastor Martin Luther King Jr 我很喜欢马丁路得金恩牧师 One of his quotes 他的一句话 He said, "We must accept finite disappointment but never lose infinite hope" 这句话这样说 他说 He said, "We must accept finite disappointment but never lose infinite hope" 我们可以接受短暂的失望 He said, "We must accept finite disappointment but never lose infinite hope" 但我们不能失去永远的盼望 Amen 阿们 Disappointment is finite 失望是短暂的 What Martin Luther King Jr was talking about 事实上马丁路得金恩要谈的事情 He wanted to tell us that there is disappointment 他要告诉我们失望是有的 But Christians, please see the significance of this 但是请基督徒们 But Christians, please see the significance of this 要看见这很重要的意义 It is finite 它是短暂的 But there is something infinite 有一个永恒的东西 Something that we really can't lose. It is called hope 是我们真正不能失去的 那叫盼望 You can't lose infinite hope 你要不能失去那个永恒的盼望 So today's main Scripture 所以 今天的主题经文 Is from the Book of Romans 在罗马书当中 In fact, Paul talked about the truth of justification by faith in the Book of Romans 事实上罗马书保罗谈了许多 In fact, Paul talked about the truth of justification by faith in the Book of Romans 因信称义的真理 Paul specifically talked about 保罗特别谈到 Because of the hope that is produced by believing 因为信心所产生的盼望 In verse 15 在第15节的时候 In fact, he summarized the concept of hope 其实他对盼望这件事情 In fact, he summarized the concept of hope 做了一个这样的总结 He said this 所以他给我们 他说了这样的话 He said there is an important point here 他说 这里有一个重点 Where does our hope come from? 他说我们的盼望是来自哪里 Brothers and sisters 弟兄姊妹们 Hope is not a product of this earth 盼望不是地上的产物

05:19
God was leading Abraham's gaze 神在带领亚伯拉罕的眼目 Beyond the darkness in front of him 越过眼前的这个黑暗 To see a beautiful image of the future 看到未来美好的那个图像 From that time on, Abraham had this hope 从此亚伯拉罕这个盼望 From that time on, Abraham had this hope 在亚伯拉罕里面 So that Abraham could become Abraham 以至于亚伯拉罕可以成为亚伯拉罕 So that Abraham could live out a wonderful and glorious life 以至于亚伯拉罕活出 So that Abraham could live out a wonderful and glorious life 那个精彩荣耀的一生 So Abraham could be fruitful, multiply and have authority 亚伯拉罕因此可以多产倍增掌权 The most important thing is 更重要的事情是 His descendants are really as numerous as the stars in the sky and the grains of sand on the seashore 他的后代 His descendants are really as numerous as the stars in the sky and the grains of sand on the seashore 真如海边的沙天上的星一样 But hope is not just wishful thinking 但是盼望不只是希望 Hope is an attitude of believing in God 盼望是一种相信神的态度 So, I want to give you this heading 所以我想给你这个标题 盼望 Hope is an attitude of trusting God 盼望是对神的一种信任 You believe God, you trust God 我相信神 我信任神 You have true hope inside you 我在里面会有一个真实的盼望 Actually, I should say that hope 盼望 事实上我应该这么说 For me, I did not believe in God at an early age 对我而言 我不是一开始就信主 This is where I differ from Pastor Samuel and Pastor Luke 我跟修哥跟以文哥他们 This is where I differ from Pastor Samuel and Pastor Luke 很不一样的地方是 It was only after many years that I started to believe in God 我经过了很多年以后我才相信神
06:20
What drew me to the church 可是吸引我会到教会来 Was a very important factor 里面有一个很重要的元素 That is, I felt that Christians were joyful 那就是我觉得基督徒都很喜乐 They were happy 都很快乐 Right. At that time, my understanding was 对 那个时候我的解读叫做 Christians are optimistic 他们基督徒都很乐观 Yesterday, I discussed this with Pastor Samuel 我昨天还跟修哥在讨论 The first time I came to Banner Church and heard Pastor Samuel's sermon 我第一次来到旌旗教会 The first time I came to Banner Church and heard Pastor Samuel's sermon 听到修哥讲道的时候 Pastor Samuel placed his hands in his pockets 修哥手插在口袋里面 He looked very natural 一副非常怡然自得 He looked very optimistic 一副非常乐观的样子 As if nothing could bring him down 一个好像不管什么样的事情 As if nothing could bring him down 不会真正难倒 Nothing could stop him or bring him down 拦阻他或是打倒他的样子 I envied that optimism 那个乐观是我很羡慕的 I envied that optimism 那个乐观是我很羡慕 But, later, when I entered the church 可是后来等我真正进到教会来以后 I discovered that optimism and hope are different 我发现乐观跟盼望 I discovered that optimism and hope are different 这是两个不同的样式 It was after I entered the church that I saw hope 我进来我才看到盼望 But I was distant 但我我在远方 Or, I hadn't yet come to know God 或者是我在还不认识神的时候 I saw these people of God 我看到这些神的百姓 What I saw was their optimism 我看到的是他们的乐观 I want to spend a little time to discuss the differences between hope and optimism 我想跟各位谈一谈花一点时间 I want to spend a little time to discuss the differences between hope and optimism 盼望跟乐观是不同的
07:22
I don't know if you are optimistic 我不知道你乐观吗 You should be optimistic 你应该乐观的 Please turn to your neighbor and say, "You should be optimistic" 请你跟旁边说 你应该乐观 You should be optimistic 你应该乐观 But optimism doesn't necessarily come from hope 但是乐观不一定来自于盼望 Can I make some comparisons? 乐观 我能不能做一点比较 Optimism is an attitude of believing in yourself 乐观是一个相信自己 That you are able to accomplish something 一定可以办到的态度 You believe that you can do it 相信自己一定可以 But hope refers to believing that God will accomplish something 但是盼望它指的是 But hope refers to believing that God will accomplish something 相信神一定做得到 The reason for your optimism may be 你的乐观的原因有一个可能 You can obtain something on your own 是我自己可以得着 So, you rely on your own ability 所以靠我自己的能力 That is true optimism 那种才真的乐观 Another source of optimism is 另外一种乐观的源头 Because it is based on hope 是因为来自于盼望 You know that God can do something 我知道上帝一定可以得到 Optimism and hope have different attributes 乐观跟盼望两个的属性不同 Optimism is a psychological issue 乐观是一种心理学的议题 We need to be optimistic. We shouldn't be pessimistic 我们需要乐观 我们不要悲观 Optimism is positivity 乐观你就有积极的人生 Optimism enables you to move forward more assertively and effectively 乐观你就有更往前的冲劲跟果效 But we are talking about hope 但是我们谈到的盼望 It is not a psychological issue 它不是心理学的议题 It is a theological issue 它是一个神学的议题 Hope refers specifically to, especially to Christians 盼望专指 特别基督徒们
08:23
Hope refers specifically to trust in God 盼望专指来自于对神的信任 I know God. I know God's attributes 我认识神 我知道神的属性 I know that God will make the best arrangements 我知道神必定做最好的安排 Because I have this kind of hope 因为我有这样的盼望 So, I have this kind of optimism 所以我有这样的乐观 I wanted to sort this out 所以我想这样整理一下 Let's first read this Scripture, shall we? 来我们先读这个经文好不好 From the Book of Romans 在罗马书里面 That kind of hope enables us 那这种盼望是让我们 It is the major reason for our joy 喜乐很重要的原因 Let's read this together. Please 我们一起读 来 So, the reason that you have joy is 所以你是欢欢喜喜的原因是因为 Because we believe we enter this kind of grace 我们因着信进入这样的恩典里面 What kind of grace? 什么样的恩典 The grace of knowing God, the grace of trusting in God 认识神的恩典 信任神的恩典 So, can I summarize this? 所以我们能不能做一个这样的总结 We are optimistic.

Many of our brothers and sisters may know this 很多我们弟兄姊妹可能都知道 On that day, it was difficult for him to move 那天其实他要移动非常的困难 On that day, it was difficult for him to move 很不容易 So, the first thought that came to my mind was 所以我心里第一个感觉是 I should stop him 我应该阻止他 Or we can just record a short video 或是录视频就好 But Pastor Samuel insisted 但是修哥很坚定 His words really moved me 他一句话很打动我 "I don't want to let my body" 我不要让我的身体 "Influence the things I am destined to do" 影响我命定中该做的事 Pastor May said 晶玫姊这样说 She wanted to participate in this most meaningful ministry with Pastor Samuel 说她要陪着修哥做这个 She wanted to participate in this most meaningful ministry with Pastor Samuel 最有意义的服事 This is a very important ministry in Pastor Samuel's destiny 这是修哥命定当中很重要的服事 So, though he might not be in great condition that day 所以那天即便可能身体不是很好 Pastor May 所以晶玫姊 She made the arrangements 特别做了一个这样的安排 It was our first time 这是我们有史以来的第一次 To have two speakers on the stage 就是台上有两个讲员坐在那里 I was surprised when I heard this 我听了吓一跳 I could not have imagined it 我完全没有办法想象 The most important thing is 最主要是 Everyone, I know the price he had to pay 各位我知道后面要付出的代价 Maybe you don't know this 可能你不晓得 At that time, Pastor Samuel 修哥在那个时候 He could type really fast 修哥打字很快 When giving a sermon on stage 到台上来传讲 You need to prepare and to record 你需要预备 你需要记录 Pastor Samuel couldn't type at that time 修哥那时候已经没有办法打字了
21:40
But it was on that day 但也就是那一天 From December 31 从12月31号开始 Actually, Pastor Samuel's health was at its worse 其实修哥的身体 Actually, Pastor Samuel's health was at its worse 在一个最糟糕的状态下面 And he came to preach on the third of January 那个是1月3号他来讲道 He was admitted to the hospital on the fifth of January 他1月5号就进到医院去了 Because his health had deteriorated 因为那时候他身体真的很糟糕 However 但是 I was shocked and really touched that 我很讶异 很感动的事情是 When he moved 他那个移动 As I am on stage talking about this 我在台上要讲这东西 I am very emotional 我真的觉得很 But may the Lord help me to finish what I am saying 但是求主帮助我把它说完 Now, when Pastor Samuel has to move 修哥现在要从这个地方 From point A to point B 甲地要移动到乙地去 He has to pay a great price 他要付极大的代价 It is very inconvenient 很不方便 His body didn't become like that gradually 他的身体不是慢慢变成这个样子 It happened overnight 他的身体是一夕之间 It happened overnight 突然成为这样子 So, actually, he has a lot to get used to 所以他其实还有很多适应 As he is adapting to this 当中正在适应 I want everyone to know this 所以我要请大家知道 Now, for him to move from his home or the hospital 他从家里现在从医院里面 To the church 要来到教会 This process of moving 这段移动的过程 It is a great challenge for him 对他来讲是一个极大的挑战 Because he made the decision 就因为他做了这个决定 Everyone, the January third sermon was recorded 我们每一个人所以有一个1月3号 Or January fourth, if you haven't seen it 1月4号 如果你没有看过那个视频 I encourage you to watch it 我鼓励你去看一下那个视频

23:44
And we see this 我们也看到这件事情 I redefined and understood what Paul said 我重新定义了也了解了保罗说 Present your bodies as a living sacrifice to God 献上身体当作活祭的意思 There is nothing in adversity 没有什么事情 There is nothing in adversity 在逆境当中 That can stop a man of great hope 可以拱起一个大有盼望的人 Because this is not from the world 因为这不是来自地上的 This is power from heaven 这是天上给的力量 This is power from heaven 这是从天上来的力量 So, you can imagine this, I'm so touched 所以你可以想象 我自己如此感动 And many brothers and sisters around me are so touched 我身边许多弟兄姊妹如此感动 Because we see that behind this 因为我们看见那个背后 Behind this weak patient 这样子虚弱的病人的背后 The strength given by this powerful God 那个强大的神 所赋予的力量 I think God's glory is manifested here 我觉得神的荣耀在这里被显明起来 Brothers and sisters 弟兄姊妹们 I especially want to pass this on to you 这是我今天特别传递给你 Hope is not just a thought or an idea 盼望不只是想法 思维 Hope is an action 盼望是一个行动 So lastly can I ask you 所以我能不能最后 To read this Scripture with me again? 请你跟我一起再读一次 To read this Scripture with me again? 这个经文好吗 Paul said, "I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God" 保罗说 我以神的慈悲劝你 Let's read this 来 我们一起读 This is the message I want to give you today 这是我今天要传递给你的讯息
24:58
Pastor Samuel has prepared many great messages 我请修哥预备了很多很棒的讯息 Please, Pastor Samuel 我请修哥对我们 I am thankful for Pastor River's message 我觉得非常谢谢荣和的分享 I say Amen in my spirit 我灵里面非常的阿们 I remember as soon as I became ill 我记得我一生病的时候 I often said a prayer 我常做的一个祷告就是 "Lord, I don't believe that this sickness, this tumor can stop Your will for me from being fulfilled" 主 我不相信 这个病 这个肿瘤 "Lord, I don't believe that this sickness, this tumor can stop Your will for me from being fulfilled" 拦阻祢在我身上旨意的成就 "Or stop the purpose for which You created me" 还有拦阻祢创造我的目的 "I don't agree, unless You allow it" 我不同意 我相信 除非祢允许 "Otherwise, I want to live out the purpose for which You created me" 不然 我要活出祢创造我的目的 So I felt 那我觉得 所以 Whatever the challenge or difficulty 有什么挑战 有什么困难 I should still do what I am supposed to do 我觉得我该做的事情 I should still do what I am supposed to do 我还是应该要去做 And when I do this 当我这样做的时候 God will open ways for me 我觉得神就为我开很多的路 These two days 我这两天 I watched a documentary 看到一个影片 Many of you might have seen it too 也许有很多人有看到一个影片 It is called, "Night Hunter, Eastern Grass Owl" 这个影片叫做夜行猎手 草鸮 It is an endangered bird in Taiwan 这是台湾非常稀有的鸟类 There are only 500 of these birds in the world 全世界只剩下五百只而已 I was very moved by this documentary 那我觉得这个影片我看了非常感动 It described 其实它在描述
25:58
How veterinarians and conservationists are working to protect this endangered bird 兽医还有我们的保护人员 How veterinarians and conservationists are working to protect this endangered bird 怎么去保护这个稀有的鸟类 Why am I mentioning this? 那我为什么提这个呢 Because in this film 因为这里面的影片里面 It described one thing 它描述一件事情就是说 This is an owl species 这是猫头鹰的一种 Their numbers are few 牠的量已经非常少了 They have to survive to raise their offspring 那因为牠必须要生存 They have to survive to raise their offspring 才能够养育牠的鶵鸟 But because they usually fly around the Siraya grassland 那因为牠常常飞在那种 But because they usually fly around the Siraya grassland 西拉雅草原上面 There is an Air Force Base nearby 那附近又有一些的空军基地 Sometimes due to safety concerns 他们有时候为了要航空安全 They put up nets to prevent birds from hitting the aircraft 他们架设一些网子 They put up nets to prevent birds from hitting the aircraft 不要让鸟跟飞机撞击 As such, some birds have been injured 也因为这样有一些鸟就受伤 Then veterinarians take these birds 然后他们 Then veterinarians take these birds 那些兽医就把那些鸟拿去 These wounded birds 就是受伤的鸟拿去 And they try to help them recover 重新来恢复牠 In this film, it showed how 然后那个影片里面描述 The veterinarians have to carefully open the claws of these birds 兽医必须很小心的 The veterinarians have to carefully open the claws of these birds 把那只鸟的脚掌 The veterinarians have to carefully open the claws of these birds 要把它撑开来 Because they rely on their claws to hunt 因为牠必须靠脚爪才能够猎食 And also to fly 也才能够继续的来飞航
27:02
But you know when a bird is hurt 但是你知道鸟一受伤 Its first reaction is to curl up 牠第一个动作就全部都缩起来 It is filled with fear 充满了惧怕 Veterinarians have to open the claws of these birds 所以他必须要把鸟的爪张开来 They give them specially made shoes for this 给牠做一个特制的鞋子 And wait for them to recover 然后慢慢来把牠的身体恢复起来 If their wings recover 如果牠的翅膀好了 If their muscles heal 身体的肌肉受伤好了 But their claws remain curled 可是脚爪如果没有好 They still cannot survive 牠仍然不能够生存 So the process is very difficult 所以那个过程里面是很不容易的 What touched me was 那这个影片我看了很感动就是 Those veterinarians had to open the claws of those birds 那些兽医必须要让这只鸟能够 Those veterinarians had to open the claws of those birds 能够把脚掌能够再张开 But a wounded bird 但是一个受伤的鸟 Its first reaction is to curl up 通常牠第一个反应就是会 Its first reaction is to curl up 会很恐惧的把自己收缩起来 In my spirit I felt that 我灵里面的感觉就是说 Those birds must believe that humans want to treat them 鸟必须要信任人类对牠是 Those birds must believe that humans want to treat them 要来医治牠的 They want to help them 是要来帮助牠的 They want to restore them 是要来恢复牠的 Not to hurt them 不是要来害牠的 Ok, the following Scripture 好 下面这段圣经节 I ask that everyone read it with me, ok? 我也请大家跟我一起来读一下好吗 Please 来 When we fall into dark times 当我们落在黑暗的时刻的时候 Our first reaction is fear 我们第一个反应就是恐惧 We may curl up 恐惧我们也很容易 We may curl up 把自己全部都收缩起来
28:14
We don't trust God 我们不相信神 We don't trust anything outside 不相信任何外面的事物 But God is not here to hurt us 可是 神不是要来害我们 God is here to help us 神是要来帮助我们 The Bible says 圣经上说 If I want to have hope 如果我要有盼望 I must make a decision 我必须要做一个选择 First, I must believe that God exists 我必须要相信第一个要相信有神 Second, I must believe that God rewards those who earnestly seek Him 第二个相信神是要赏赐 Second, I must believe that God rewards those who earnestly seek Him 那寻求祂的人 If a bird doesn't trust that the veterinarians are trying to help it, it keeps resisting 如果那只鸟一直不相信人类的兽医 If a bird doesn't trust that the veterinarians are trying to help it, it keeps resisting 是要帮助牠 牠一直拒绝 It won't be able to recover 最后这只鸟是没有办法被恢复的 In the same way, you have to believe that 一样 你也要相信 God is here to help you 神是要来帮助你的 God is not here to hurt you 神不是要来害你的 God is here to reward you 神是要来赏赐你的 I have an image 我常有个图像 Of a baby in his mother's arms 一个小婴孩面对妈妈的时候 When his mother tries to feed him 如果妈妈喂他奶 He keeps rejecting the milk 他一直把奶踢掉 "Don't give me poisoned milk" 你不要喂我毒奶 "It will kill me" 这奶会害死我 He keeps kicking and pushing the milk away 一直把它踹掉 一直把它推掉 Then this baby will never grow 那这个小婴孩就不可能成长 He must believe that his parents love him 他必须要信任爸爸妈妈是爱他的 The things they provide are good for him 他供应给他的是 The things they provide are good for him 对他是有好处的 I feel that oftentimes when we are scared and in fear 我觉得很多时候我们在 I feel that oftentimes when we are scared and in fear 受到惊吓 受到恐惧的时候 We become easily afraid and reject God 我们很容易害怕然后就拒绝神
29:16
We refuse to trust God 拒绝相信神 We don't believe that God will bless us 不相信神是会赐福我 We don't believe that we can have hope in God 不相信神我可以有盼望的 This actually hurts us 我觉得这样是会害了自己 I want to encourage you today 我今天要鼓励大家就是 Anyone who comes before God must 人到神面前来必须 First, believe that God exists 第一个信有神 Second, believe that God wants to reward you 第二个信神是要赏赐你的 God rewards those who earnestly seek Him 神是要赏赐那寻求祂的人 If you have this faith 如果你有这样的信心 Just like what Pastor River said 像刚刚荣和说的 Hope is not just an attitude 盼望不只是一种态度 You believe and you take action 你相信而且你要采取行动 You take action to respond to what God wants you to do 你采取行动去响应神要你做的事情 I shared this Scripture last week 上个礼拜我讲了这处圣经节 Shall we read it again?
