联合理工研经营2018感想 – 《蒙福与装备》(Blessed and Equipped)

我于10月9日至11日参与了2018年的联合理工研经营,在报名之前,其实我并不抱任何期望。然而,当我离开营会时却觉得自己异常的蒙福,感恩今时今日我能拥有一本属于我的圣经,甚至可以下载到手机里随身携带。

以OIA研经法查考雅各书 (Doing inductive Bible study on the book of James)

在营会中我们学习到每封新约书信的背景、新约正典的形成、当时犹太人的文化和历史、学习归纳式查经法并将其应用在雅各书的研读上。感恩这些知识使我能更深地体会并赞叹从上帝而来的永活话语。我也感恩其他营友的参与,使我得以在他们身上看到爱神的见证。这大大鼓励我,使我对自己在教会青年事工的服事中更有信心。在罗马书12:1,使徒保罗敦促我们要献上自己的身体当作活祭,是圣洁的,是神所喜悦的。我迫切地想要跟教会和校园团契的年轻人分享敬拜的真义。

作为参与华文团契的一年级生,我为着在FES中受到的装备向上帝献上感恩。虽然我的华文并不好,但靠着神的恩典,我能够明白在营会中的教导并且在营会中担任小组组长的事奉,竭尽所能带领小组灵修和讨论。荣耀归给至高神。

最后,提摩太后书3:16说,“圣经都是神所默示的,于教训、督责、使人归正、教导人学义都是有益的”,这使我留下深刻印象。愿我们都对神的话语有良好的装备,使我们成为顺服的仆人并竭力完成祂那美好的工作。

营员们呈现各自小组的总结 (Presenting the findings from our study)

I came for the combined polytechnic Chinese CF Bible study camp, held from 9­–11 Oct 2018, with no expectations or goals. However, I left the camp feeling exceptionally blessed. I felt blessed because today I have the privilege of owning a personal copy of the Bible, and that it is now even available as a phone app which makes it more convenient for us to read God’s Word.

During the camp we were introduced to the context behind each book of the epistles, canonisation of the New Testament, culture and history of the Jews, learning the Bible study structure OIA (Observation, Interpretation and Application) and applying it to study the book of James. As a person who values the Living Word of  God, I am grateful for the opportunity to have a deeper understanding of the Word. I also appreciate the participation of the other students in the camp as I see that their lives are a living testimony of their love towards God. They really encouraged me in my ministry with the youths in my church. The apostle Paul urged us in Romans 12:1 to offer our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God. I feel compelled to share with the youths around me, both in my church and CF, on what true and proper worship towards God means.

As a first-year student joining the Chinese CF, I am grateful to God for the opportunities and teachings FES has presented. Though my command of Mandarin is poor, by the grace of God, I was able to understand the teachings in the camp and perform my role as a group leader to lead the group in devotions and discussions. Glory to God in the highest.

To end off, the verse from 2 Timothy 3:16, ‘All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness’, has left a deep impression in me. May we be well equipped with the Word of God, so that we may do His good works as His obedient servants.
