神と時間を過ごす Spending Time With God
(黙示録 3:20 ALIVE訳)ごらんなさい。私は戸の外で、しきりにたたいている。その呼びかけにこたえて戸を開ける人なら、だれとでも、私は中に入って、楽しく食事をしよう。
(Revelation 3:20 ERV) Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in and eat with you. And you will eat with me.
(黙示録3:19-20 AMPからの直訳)私は[心から、深く、やさしく]愛する者を、叱り、躾する[彼らの欠点を示し、指導する]。だから、心を入れ替え、熱くいよう[内側の自分を変え—以前の考え方、悪い態度から–神の思いを求める]。(20)~”見て” 私は(教会の)扉の外に立ち、しきりにたたいている。誰でも私の呼びかけにこたえて扉を開けるなら、私は中に入って彼と食事をしよう(彼を回復させよう)。私と一緒。
(Revelation 3:19-20 AMP) ‘Those whom I [dearly and tenderly] love, I rebuke and discipline [showing them their faults and instructing them]; so be enthusiastic and repent [change your inner self–your old way of thinking, your sinful behavior–seek God’s will]. (20) ~‘Behold, I stand at the door [of the church] and continually knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him (restore him), and he with Me.
(ルカ 5:16 ALIVE訳)イエスは、常に人に囲まれていたが、かかさず、しかも頻繁に1人で祈りに出かけたのであった。
(Luke 5:16 ERV) Jesus often went away to other places to be alone so that he could pray.
ある時は朝 Sometimes In The Morning
(マルコ 1:35-37 ALIVE訳)翌朝——一人っきりで祈るためにイエスは家を出た。外はまだ暗くて涼しい。イエスがいなくなってからだいぶ時間がたったが、一向に戻ってこない。何の音沙汰もなかったので、シモンは仲間を連れてイエスを探しに出た——「い、いたぞー!」「こぉ—んなとこにいたんスかッ!みんな探してたんスよー!」
(Mark 1:35-37 ERV) The next morning Jesus woke up very early. He left the house while it was still dark and went to a place where he could be alone and pray. (36) Later, Simon and his friends went to look for Jesus. (37) They found him and said, “Everyone is looking for you!”
ある時は夜 Sometimes At Night
(マルコ 6:45-46 ALIVE訳)それからイエスは、先に小舟に乗って湖の向こう側にあるベツサイダの町に行くようにと一味に指示した。1人残ったイエスは、周りにいた人たちにも家に帰るようにと言い聞かせ、みんなにさよならをすると、1人で祈るため、山に登って行った。
(Mark 6:45-46 ERV) Then Jesus told the followers to get into the boat. He told them to go to the other side of the lake to Bethsaida. He said he would come later. He stayed there to tell everyone they could go home. (46) After he said goodbye to them, he went up into the hills to pray.
1. 優先意識 Priority
2. 1人っきり Alone
3. 祈りは父さんとの時間だった Prayer Was A Way To Spend Time With The Father
どうやって過ごせばいいの? How Should We Spend Our Time?
(マタイ ‭6:6‬ ‭JCB)‬‬祈る時には、一人で部屋に閉じこもり、父なる神に祈りなさい。隠れたことはどんな小さなことでもご存じのあなたの父から、必ずごほうびがいただけます。
(Matthew 6:6 NLT) But when you pray, you should go into your room and close the door. Then pray to your Father. He is there in that private place. He can see what is done in private, and he will reward you.
(マタイ 6:9-13 ALIVE訳)こう祈れ! 天の父さん(神)、 あなたの名がいつまでも誰よりも讃えられるように! (10)あなたの王国(キングダム)よ、来い! あなたの思いどおりになる天のように、ここでも実現されよ! (11)毎日必要な食料の調達を! (12)俺たちが赦したように赦して! (13)どうか俺たちを誘惑から守り、 悪から救ってくれ!――【決して神に命令しているのではなく、親子の関係を表した祈りだった】
(Matthew‬ ‭6:9-13‬ ‭ERV)‬‬ So this is how you should pray: ‘Our Father in heaven, we pray that your name will always be kept holy. (10)We pray that your kingdom will come— that what you want will be done here on earth, the same as in heaven. (11)Give us the food we need for today. (12)Forgive our sins, just as we have forgiven those who did wrong to us. (13)Don’t let us be tempted, but save us from the Evil One.
It’s Not About Saying The Sets Of Words, It’s A Relationship Between The Father And A Child
考えるだけじゃなく、話そうDon’t just Think but Actually Talk
話すだけじゃなく、尋ねようDon’t just Talk but Actually Ask
尋ねるだけじゃなく、聞こうDon’t just Ask but Actually Listen
聞くだけじゃなく、信頼しようDon’t just Listen but Actually Trust
(ヘブル 11:6 ALIVE訳)信仰なしに神を喜ばすことは出来ない。神のもとへ行きたければ、神の存在を信じ、熱心に神を求めるなら必ず報われることを信じなければならない。
(Hebrews 11:6 ERV) Without faith no one can please God. Whoever comes to God must believe that he is real and that he rewards those who sincerely try to find him.

喜びを奪われないで! – ピリピ3 Don’t Let Your Joy Be Stolen! – Philippians 3
(Philippians 3:1) Further, my brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord! It is no trouble for me to write
the same things to you again, and it is a safeguard for you.
(箴言 17:22)喜びを抱く心はからだを養うが、霊が沈みこんでいると骨まで枯れる。
(Proverbs 17:22 NLT) A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.
(2 テモテ 4:3)なぜなら、人々が真理のことばは耳ざわりだと敬遠し、自分につごうのよい話をする教師を求めて歩き回る時代が来るからです。
(2 Timothy 4:3 NLT) For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome
teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their
itching ears want to hear.
What was actually happening in Philippian Church? (Why was he giving this warning?)
(ピリピ3:2-3 リビング訳)救われるためには割礼(男子の生殖器の包皮を切り取る儀式)を受ける必要があると教える、あの悪い連中を警戒してください。危険な犬ですから。肉体の一部を切り取りさえすれば、神様の子供になれるのではありません。霊をもって神様を礼拝する者こそ、神様の子供なのです。その礼拝こそが、ただ一つの真の「割礼」です。クリスチャンの誇れることと言ったら、キリスト・イエスが成し遂げてくださったわざだけです。自分で自分を救うことなどとてもできないと、よく知っているはずです。
(Philippians 3:2-3) Watch out for those dogs, those evildoers, those mutilators of the flesh. 3For it is
we who are the circumcision, we who serve God by his Spirit, who boast in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh—
– どんな敵があったのか? What kinds of enemies were there?
1.方法(やり方)という敵 The Enemy Of Methods (How To)
(Philippians 3:14) I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
2.疑いという敵 The Enemy Of Doubt
– 信じることに力がある There’s a power in believing
(エペソ 1:19)また、神の全能の力の働きによって私たち信じる者に働く神のすぐれた力がどのように偉大なものであるかを、あ
(Philippians 1:19) for I know that through your prayers and God’s provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ
what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance.
(Ephesians 3:20 NLT) Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.

楽しくて自由!! FUN & FREE!!

(ヨハネ 10:10 ALIVE)強盗は、盗んだり、殺したり、滅ぼしたりするために来ます。しかし私が来たのは、生命(いのち)を、あふれるほど豊かに与えるためです。

(John 10:10 MSG) A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.

楽しさを奪い返す!自由の身!!Get The Fun Back! SET FREE!!

(ローマ 7:18-20 ALIVE)そう、私自身の中に良いものは全くないのだ。どんなにもがいても、自分で自分に、正しいことを行なわせることができない。そうしたいのだが、できないのだ。(19)良いことをしたいと思っても行なわず、悪いことをしないように努めても、どうしてもそれをしてしまう。(20)自分ではしたくないことをしているとすれば、それをしているのは、私ではない。つまり、私に住みついている過ちの力がしているのだ。  

(Romans 7:18-20 NLT) And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. I want to do what is right, but I can’t. (19I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway. (20But if I do what I don’t want to do, I am not really the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it. 

(ローマ 7:25 ALIVE)でも神に感謝している!王なるイエス・救世主(リスト)によって、私は解放された。心では、喜んで神に従う召使でありたいと願いながら、実際には、人間の弱さゆえに過ちの奴隷となっている。

(Romans 7:25 NLT) Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. So you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God’s law, but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin

(ヨハネ 8:32 ALIVE)あなたがたは真理を悟り、その真理があなたを自由にする!!!

(John 8:32) And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

戦い続ける!Keep Fighting!

(ガラテヤ 5:1 ALIVE)このように、救世主(キリスト)は私たちを自由の身にしてくれた。 だから、この自由をしっかり握っていなさい。もう二度と、モーセ法や儀式に束縛された奴隷とならないよう、細心の注意を払いなさい。  

(Galatians 5:1 MSG) Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you.  

(詩篇 118:5-9 MSGからの直訳)追い込まれ、神様に助けを求めた。広大にオープンなところから、神様は答えた。神様は私の味方だ!もう恐くない;誰が私に触れることができる?神様は私の力強いチャンピオンだ;敵はハエみたいに払い落とせる。人に信頼をおくより、神様におくほうが格段と良い。セレブに信頼をおくより神様におくほうが格段と良い。

(Psalm 118:5-9 MSG) Pushed to the wall, I called to God; from the wide open spaces, he answered. God’s now at my side and I’m not afraid; who would dare lay a hand on me? God’s my strong champion; I flick off my enemies like flies. Far better to take refuge in God than trust in people; Far better to take refuge in God than trust in celebrities. 


グループでの質問と祈り Lifegroup Questions and Prayer

1. あなたは自由を噛み締めていますか? Are you holding firm to this freedom?

2. 日々、どんなチャレンジがありますか? What kind of daily challenges do you have?

The Blessing Bounce 祝福のバウンス
(Luke 18:15-16) People were also bringing babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. When the
disciples saw this, they rebuked them. (16) But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little
children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
-Blessing is used about 400 times in the Bible. 聖書では祝福が400回ほど使われている
What does it mean? どういう意味?
To speak good words over something. 何かに対して良いことばを放つこと。
Good + Words 「良い」+「ことば」
The opposite is cursing: speaking bad words over something. 弟子たちは罵っている:何かに対して悪いことばを放
1.God always starts the blessing bounce – that’s who he is! 神様はいつも祝福のバウンスを始める–それが神様!
(Genesis 1:28) God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth
and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that
moves on the ground.”
2.The Blessing bounced into Abraham アブラハムに祝福が飛び込んだ
(Genesis 12:1-3) he Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s
household to the land I will show you. (2) “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will
make your name great, and you will be a blessing. (3) I will bless those who bless you, and whoever
curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
3.The blessing bounces into believers 信じる人たちに祝福は飛び込む
(Galatians 3:9) So those who rely on faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.
(Proverbs 10:22 NLT) The blessing of the Lord makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.

負けるが勝ち! 勝利への道 To Lose Is To Win! – Road To Victory –
There are battles you should and shouldn’t fight
(John 13:6-8 NLT) He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”
(7) Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” (8) “No,” said
Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”
(ヨハネ 13:13-15)あなたがたはわたしを先生とも主とも呼んでいます。あなたがたがそう言うのはよい。わたしはそのような者だ
(John 13:13-15 NLT) “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. (14) Now
that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. (15) I
have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.
1. 勝利とはいったい何? What Actually Is A Win?
(ルカ 9:23-24)イエスは、みなの者に言われた。「だれでもわたしについて来たいと思うなら、自分を捨て、日々自分の十字架を
(Luke 9:23-24) Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and
take up their cross daily and follow me. (24) For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but
whoever loses their life for me will save it.
2. 本当の勝利って? What Does It Mean To Truly Win?
(Matthew 20:25-26) But Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world
lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. (26) But among you
it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant,
(Philippians 2:6-8) Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. (7)
Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human
being. When he appeared in human form, (8)he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s
death on a cross.
– クリスチャンの成長とは? What does it mean to grow as Christian?
A. 誰の国を建て上げているのか明確にしよう Whose Kingdom Are You Building?

everything you need.
3. 手放すことから得られる大勝利を受け取ろう! Get The Big Win By Letting Go!
(Ephesians 4:31-32 NLT) Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all
types of evil behavior. (32) Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just
as God through Christ has forgiven you.

 Stay Hydrated!
(John 4:7-18 NLT) Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, “Please give me a drink.” (8)
He was alone at the time because his disciples had gone into the village to buy some food. (9) The woman was
surprised, for Jews refuse to have anything to do with Samaritans. She said to Jesus, “You are a Jew, and I am a
Samaritan woman. Why are you asking me for a drink?” (10) Jesus replied, “If you only knew the gift God has for you
and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.” (11) “But sir, you don’t have a rope
or a bucket,” she said, “and this well is very deep. Where would you get this living water? (12) And besides, do you
think you’re greater than our ancestor Jacob, who gave us this well? How can you offer better water than he and his
sons and his animals enjoyed?” (13) Jesus replied, “Anyone who drinks this water will soon become thirsty again. (14)
But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving
them eternal life.” (15) “Please, sir,” the woman said, “give me this water! Then I’ll never be thirsty again, and I won’t
have to come here to get water.” (16) “Go and get your husband,” Jesus told her. (17) “I don’t have a husband,” the
woman replied. Jesus said, “You’re right! You don’t have a husband—(18) for you have had five husbands, and you
aren’t even married to the man you’re living with now. You certainly spoke the truth!”
