5:1–11 Ananias and Sapphira pay a high price for their hypocrisy, taking grace for granted and forgetting that “we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ” (2Co 5:10). Woe to those who disturb and deceive the Lord’s Church! Yet, “the fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom” (Pr 9:10). “If anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father” (1Jn 2:1). • Lord, let a goodly measure of “fear and trembling” (Php 2:12) inform our trust in You. Amen.

5:1-11 亚拿尼亚和撒非喇为他们的虚伪付出了高昂的代价,他们认为恩典是理所当然的,忘记了 "我们众人必要在基督台前显露出来"(林后 5:10)。那些扰乱和欺骗主教会的人有祸了!然而,"敬畏耶和华是智慧的开端"(箴 9:10)。"若有人犯罪,我们在父面前有一位代求者"(约一2:1)。- 主啊,让适宜的 "恐惧和战兢"(腓2:12)引领我们对你的信靠。阿们。


5:12–16 God heals many people through the apostles. This massive outpouring of God’s love and power comes with His serious appeals for repentance. God’s power to change lives is still at work today. His greatest work always remains the forgiveness of sins. • Lord, fill us with all due reverence for You and Your mysteries. Stretch forth Your hand to heal the sicknesses of our bodies and souls. Amen.

5:12-16 神通过使徒医治了许多人。神的爱和大能大规模涌现的同时,祂也严肃地呼吁人们悔改。今天,上帝改变生命的大能仍在运行。祂最伟大的工作始终是赦罪。- 主啊,让我们对你和你的奥秘充满敬畏。伸出你的手,治愈我们身体和灵魂的疾病。阿们。


5:17–42 God’s patience (Rm 2:4) is running out. Those at the head of Israel are dangerously close to judgment. Under fire, the Church holds firm, confesses the truth, and accepts the suffering that follows. Today, pray for bold witness and the blessing of peaceful service. When trouble threatens, have confidence that the crucified and risen Savior will keep us steadfast in His grace. • Lord, protect and deliver Your holy people who are still persecuted countless times each day. Amen.

5:17-42 上帝的忍耐(罗马书2:4)即将耗尽。以色列的首领们正危险地接近审判。在炮火之下,教会坚守阵地,宣告真理,接受因此而来的苦难。今天,为大胆的见证以及和平侍奉的祝福祷告。当困难来临时,相信被钉十字架又复活的救赎主会让我们在祂的恩典中坚定不移。- 主啊,求你保护并拯救你的圣洁子民,他们每天仍在无数次地遭受迫害。阿们。
