DAY 19 ASSEMBLING TOGETHER

Who has God linked me with?

第19天 紧密联系

谁将我跟上帝联系到一起

When people become followers of Jesus, their highest priority is to nurture their new relationship with the Lord. There can be no substitute for developing a personal one-to-One bond.

当人们追随耶稣,他们就有优先建立跟上帝的关系。这是不可替代的,用于建立跟上帝一对一的关系。

Even so, as we emphasized on Day 11, we aren't supposed to be isolated, but rather joined to other believers in a common pursuit to discover God and walk in His ways. It has been said that the two sections of the cross -- the vertical and the horizontal -- symbolically represent our dual relationship with God and with others. They intersect. They are not unrelated.

即使如此,正如我们在第11天强调的,我们不想被孤立,我们想跟其他信众一起去追求真理,以上帝的方式为人处世。据说十字架的两个部分---横架和竖架---代表我们跟上帝和其他信众的关系。他们是相互关联的,不是毫无联系的。

Gatherings of believers -- or "churches" -- come in many packages -- from small clusters of those who gather secretly in regions where such practices are forbidden, to "mega-churches" of tens of thousands of Christians. Regardless of the configuration, it is vital for every believer to be linked with other believers. This linkage was the spontaneous response of those who came to faith on the day of Pentecost, and we need to understand how they functioned.

信众聚集地---或“教堂”---以各种形式出现---小部分人在一些禁止宗教集会的地方秘密聚集,或成千上万的基督教徒组成的“大教堂”。不管教堂的大小,每个信众跟其他信众联系在一起是非常重要的。这是在圣灵降临节信众自发建立的联系。我们要理解它的功效。

And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine (or teaching) and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers (Acts 2:42).

他们继续在教义学习(或布道),施舍和祷告中发挥作用。(使徒行传 章节 2:42

Each of the four aspects of their assembling was catalytic to their growth individually and as a group:

Teaching kept them centered on God's word, rooted in "sound doctrine."

他们联系的每个方面影响他们各自的成长。作为一个团体:

布道让他们以学习圣经为中心,让“正确的教义”在信众心中扎根。

Fellowship kept them involved with one another in friendship, as well as praise, worship and testimonies to God's activity.

Breaking bread kept them in touch by sharing meals with each other, giving opportunity for warm dialogue and growing friendship. These meals generally took place "house to house" (v. 46), and brought whole families, including children, together in a very natural setting.

教友关系让他们相互建立友谊,赞美,崇拜和验证上帝的行为。

施舍让他们通过分享食物给其他人彼此互相接触,给予机会进行友好交流和培养友谊。

这些施舍通常是“逐家逐户”(v. 46),全家包括孩子,很自然的一起投入。
