Ezra 3:1 When the seventh month came, and the children of Israel were in the towns, the people gathered as one man to Jerusalem… And Jeshua with his sons and his brothers, and Kadmiel and his sons, the sons of Judah, together supervised the workmen in the house of God, along with the sons of Henadad and the Levites, their sons and brothers.

以斯拉記 3:1 到了七月,以色列人住在自己的城裏;那時他們如同一人,聚集在耶路撒冷。 … 於是何達威雅的後裔,就是耶書亞和他的子孫與弟兄、甲篾和他的子孫,他們和利未希拿達的子孫與弟兄,都起來如同一人,監督那些在 神殿裏做工的人。

There were 42,360 (Ezra 2:64) plus their servants who went back to Jerusalem from Babylon to rebuild the temple. When they set their hearts on rebuilding the temple, they gathered as one man to go to Jerusalem. They knew their mission – to rebuild the temple. They followed their leader, Zerubbabel, and worked together in unity. Many of our children have left the church and even their faith because they have witnessed disunity in churches and have even experienced church splits. In a similar way, many of our children have lost hope to form their own families because around them are so many broken families. There is power in the unity achieved when Christians worship together with one heart and work together as one man. Let us not only be vigilant to maintain social distancing but also be “eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace”. (Ephesians 4:3 ), When we “connect” to worship, to pray, and to fellowship as one man in the name of Jesus, God will be with us! (Matthew 18:20)

有42,360名(以斯拉記2:64)加上他們的僕人從巴比倫回到耶路撒冷重建聖殿。當他們全心全意地重建聖殿時,”那時他們如同一人,聚集在耶路撒冷”。他們知道他們的任務-重建聖殿。他們跟隨他們的領袖所羅巴伯,並團結一致地工作。我們的許多孩子已經離開教會,甚至離開了他們的信仰,因為他們目睹了教會中的不團結,甚至經歷了教會分裂。同樣,我們的許多孩子也失去了組建自己家庭的希望,因為他們周圍有很多破碎的家庭。當基督徒全心全意地如同一人敬拜和服事時,就帶來力量。讓我們不僅保持“社交隔離”,而且“以和平彼此聯繫,竭力保持聖靈所賜的合一”。 (以弗所書4:3),當我們奉耶穌的名如同一人“連接”敬拜,祈禱和團契時,上帝就會與我們同在!(馬太福音18:20)
