Who Hears Your Praises? (Chinese/English)

Who Hears Your Praises?
谁听到你的赞美?

“Also that day they offered great sacrifices, and rejoiced: for God had made them rejoice with great joy: the wives also and the children rejoiced: so that the joy of Jerusalem was heard even afar off-Nehemiah 12:43.”
“43 那日,众人献大祭而欢乐,因为神使他们大大欢乐,连妇女带孩童也都欢乐,甚至耶路撒冷中的欢声听到远处。“尼希米记 12:43

The walls of Jerusalem had been completed and the children of Israel were making a fearful racket!  Look at who made them rejoice, it was God. Does the very thought of God make you rejoice?    But it is the last part of the verse, that I want to stress.
耶路撒冷的城墙已经完成,以色列的子民多么兴高采烈!看看是谁使他们欢乐,正是上帝。提到上帝的念头是否让你欢欣鼓舞?这正是我要强调这节经文的最后一部分。

When we were in our old church, we met on the top floor of a block of flats (10th), and when we worshipped, it could be heard all around. You couldn’t just feel the joy inside, you could hear the joy outside. Many people have asked, why are those people so joyful?
我们曾在教堂的旧址上聚会,地点是一栋公寓楼的顶层(第10层),当我们敬拜的时候,欢乐的声音遍及周围。你不仅能感受到内心的喜悦,还能听到外面的欢声笑语。很多人都问,为什么那些人如此喜乐?

Let me ask you this, when you worship God can people hear you? If your worship is so slow and dead, then the people outside will not be able to hear it. Remember, we are a people of joy, a people of praise. We are to tell out the glories of the Lord.
我想问你,当你敬拜上帝时,人们能听到你吗?如果你的敬拜缓慢而死气沉沉,那么外面的人是无法听到的。记住,我们是快乐的子民,是赞美的子民。我们要述说上帝的荣耀。

Are your praises of God being heard afar off like the children of Israel?  What can people say of your church and indeed of you?   Are you someone that is joyful and constantly praises God?  Can we hear nothing but praise from their lips?
你对上帝的赞美是否能像以色列的子民一样被远处的人听到?人们是否会这样评价你的教堂,甚至是你自己?你是个快乐并不断赞美上帝的人吗?我们是否听到你的嘴唇满是赞美的声音?

Let’s make sure that our praises and our joy are known the world over. We are a joyous people. God has made us glad.
让我们保证我们的赞美和喜乐使全世界都知道。我们是快乐的子民。上帝使我们快乐。

God bless you
愿上帝保佑你。

    Joy comes flooding into our heart when we keep our focus on Him, not on the world. If we are joyless Christians, it’s time to refocus. Thanks Keith.
