Scripture Reading 讀經:Luke 路加福音 9:49-56

49“Master,” said John, “we saw someone driving out demons in your name and we tried to stop him, because he is not one of us.”   50 “Do not stop him,” Jesus said, “for whoever is not against you is for you.”  51 As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. 52 And he sent messengers on ahead, who went into a Samaritan village to get things ready for him; 53 but the people there did not welcome him, because he was heading for Jerusalem. 54 When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, “Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them?” 55 But Jesus turned and rebuked them. 56 Then he and his disciples went to another village.


49 約翰說:「夫子,我們看見一個人奉你的名趕鬼,我們就禁止他,因為他不與我們一同跟從你。」 50 耶穌說:「不要禁止他,因為不敵擋你們的,就是幫助你們的。」撒馬利亞人不接待主。  51 耶穌被接上升的日子將到,  他就定意向耶路撒冷去, 52 便打發使者在他前頭走。他們到了撒馬利亞的一個村莊,要為他預備。 53 那裡的人不接待他,因他面向耶路撒冷去。 54 他的門徒雅各、約翰看見了,就說:「主啊,你要我們吩咐火從天上降下來燒滅他們,像以利亞所做的嗎?」 55 耶穌轉身責備兩個門徒,說:「你們的心如何,你們並不知道。 56 人子來不是要滅人的性命,是要救人的性命。」說著就往別的村莊去了。
