詩篇一百篇

稱謝詩。

1 普天下當向耶和華歡呼!
2 你們當樂意侍奉耶和華,當來向他歌唱!
3 你們當曉得耶和華是神,我們是他造的,也是屬他的,我們是他的民,也是他草場的羊。
4 當稱謝進入他的門,當讚美進入他的院,當感謝他,稱頌他的名!
5 因為耶和華本為善,他的慈愛存到永遠,他的信實直到萬代。

詩篇第100篇是總結“耶和華作王”的一組詩。詩篇第93篇為小引,第94篇論耶和華為審判的主,第95篇至99篇均預言基督為王,本篇則以 “稱謝”為結束。有人認為本篇是在聖殿落成時,民眾結隊遊行,進入聖殿時所唱的詩歌。以前猶太人差不多每日在會堂敬拜時唱這詩。後來有人根據本篇詩寫成聖詩(普天頌讚第16與17首),成為歷代以來教會所常唱的聖詩。英國講道王子司布真說:“當人數眾多的會眾同唱這首詩的時候,天下沒有比此種歌聲更叫人感到雄偉了。”

這篇詩共有七個“當”字,是七個命令。這些是信徒事奉的總綱,也是信徒事奉的原則。我們事奉神如果有原則,事奉就有果效;有果效的事奉,才能真正的榮耀神。

一.當向耶和華歡呼(1節)

當一個人在最高興的時候,他就會歡呼,在得到一件心愛的東西的時候會歡呼,球賽拿到總冠軍的時候會歡呼,失業者得到工作的時候會歡呼,拿到博士 學位時會歡呼,得到升職加薪時會歡呼。

Great Leadership Begins with the Heart

Hi GAMErs,

Here is some background on the book of Nehemiah:

For several decades the people of Judah lived in exile in Babylon, having been ousted out of their own homeland because of persistent sin.  In 539 B.C. Cyrus King of Persia defeats the Babylonians and encourages the Jews to return to their homeland.  As we saw in the book of Ezra, the first group of Jews, about 50,000 of them, returned to Jerusalem in 538 B.C. (Ezra 1-2).  Under the leadership of governor Zerubabbel, the Jews rebuild the temple of the Lord in Jerusalem despite much opposition (Ezra 3-6).  In 458 B.C., Ezra leads a second group of about 1,500 Jews back to Jerusalem (Ezra 7-8).  When Ezra arrives in Jerusalem he discovers that the Jews have seriously compromised their faith by marrying unbelievers and following their idolatrous practices.  He leads them to repent and return to the Lord (Ezra 9-10).  In approximately 444 B.C., 14 years after Ezra arrives in Jerusalem, the events of Nehemiah 1 begin.  Written by Nehemiah himself in approximately 430 B.C., the book of Nehemiah chronicles Nehemiah’s long struggle to lead his people to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem.
