To Think About: We have entered into the church season of Advent when we prepare for the coming of Jesus anew in our hearts. On this third Sunday of Advent we reflect on Joy – the joy that is felt from the Holy Spirit dwelling in our hearts and guiding us to eternity, not the fleeting feelings brought on by the world.  Praise be to the Lord, for he has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.  Psalm 28:6-8  You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.  Psalm 16:11

思考:教會已進入了降臨節期,我們亦預備在心中再次迎接耶穌的來臨。第三個主日代表喜樂——喜樂的感覺是聖靈住在我們心裏,引領我們得永生,而不是在這個世上隨波逐流。詩篇28:6-8:“耶和華是應當稱頌的!因為他聽了我懇求的聲音。耶和華是我的力量,是我的盾牌,我心裡倚靠他,就得幫助。所以我心中歡樂,我必用詩歌頌讚他。耶和華是他百姓的力量,又是他受膏者得救的保障。”  詩篇16:11:“你必將生命的道路指示我,在你面前有滿足的喜樂,在你右手中有永遠的福樂。
