Nurturing Notes

Our learning resources

第一堂 Session 1:
1. 我们一生有许多的需求,这与“为己无所求” 和 “为主无所留” 这两个观念似乎有冲突,因为神也常应许赐福于他的子民。 但是耶稣基督如此般的捨己实在是一种彻底的委身表现。我们应当如何行,才算是委身? 以上这些讨论与保罗在第四章10至13节所说的”他在任何境况中都知足“有何关係?
We have many requests in our lives, and "asking not for oneself" and "giving it all up for the Lord" seem to be at odds, because God also promises to bless His people. However, the extent of Jesus' giving of himself shows us what it means to be fully committed. How should we act, to be considered as committed? And what relation do these points have with what Paul says in 4:11 that "I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content"?

2. 我们个人过去有什麽地方曾经顺服神,放下自我,遵行神的话的生活经历,可以分享一二吗? 同时也分享为何要顺服神,顺服神结果如何?
Do we have personal experiences where we have obeyed God, and denied ourselves to follow His word? Let's share 1-2 experiences. Also, what were the outcomes of this obedience?
