以弗所书4:1-6
对峙(10)—— 保守合一的心
"用和平彼此联络,竭力保守圣灵所赐合而为一的心。" 弗4:3

  有一处地方、一个空间、一片领域,在那里完全没有不和。在那里,纠纷并不存在,因为"不能"在那里存在。那地就是在圣灵里面。

  被圣灵充满,就是活在真理和爱中,不管我们的分歧有多大。当我们的看法不一致时,藉着圣灵我们仍可心意相通。实际上,藉着圣灵我们甚至可以赞美差异,从中学习。

  今天,让我们来记念与庆祝真理的圣灵当年首次倾注入信徒的日子,当那火焰显现,分开落在各人头上,他们就立时进入了圣灵的生命。

  虽然在五旬节那天,耶路撒冷有"从天下各国来"(使徒行传2:5)的人,他们的种族、国籍与语言像彩虹五彩缤纷的颜色一般多种多样,圣灵的绳索立即把他们连成了紧密的一群,他们开始了"凡物公用"(徒2:44)。

  我们确实彼此各有不同,即使信徒也是这样。然而我们若保守圣灵所赐合而为一的心,那些分歧便成了我们的祝福;相反,若不能合一的话,分歧就会成为诅咒。

  对,我们应当竭力保守圣灵所赐合而为一的心。

祷告

父啊,求祢开我们的眼睛,使我们可以在弟兄姊妹身上瞥见圣灵的生命,并因圣灵住在他们里面而欢喜快乐,就像他们也为我欢喜快乐一样。奉耶稣的名求,阿们。

face-offs (10) 对峙(10)—— 保守合一的心
"Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace." Ephesians 4:3 "用和平彼此联络,竭力保守圣灵所赐合而为一的心。" 弗4:3

There is a place, a space, a realm where there simply is no discord. Conflict does not exist there. It cannot exist there. That place is within the person of the Holy Spirit.

To be filled with the Spirit is to live in both truth and love, no matter how great our differences may be. When we cannot see eye to eye, it is through the Spirit that we can still see heart to heart and mind to mind. Indeed, through the Spirit we can even celebrate our differences and learn from them.

Today we celebrate the day in history when that dynamic Spirit of love and truth was first poured out on believers. Immediately they were all drawn into the Spirit's life as flames like fire separated and rested upon each and every one of the them.

Despite the fact that there were people in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost "from every nation under heaven" (Acts 2:5), whose ethnic and national diversity and languages were as varied as the multicolors of the rainbow, instantly the drawstring of the Spirit cinched them up into a tight community that "had everything in common" (Acts 2:44).

We are so different from one another, even as believers. If we maintain the unity the Spirit gives us, those differences will bless; but if we don't, they'll curse! It's worth every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit.

  有一处地方、一个空间、一片领域,在那里完全没有不和。在那里,纠纷并不存在,因为"不能"在那里存在。那地就是在圣灵里面。

  被圣灵充满,就是活在真理和爱中,不管我们的分歧有多大。当我们的看法不一致时,藉着圣灵我们仍可心意相通。实际上,藉着圣灵我们甚至可以赞美差异,从中学习。

  今天,让我们来记念与庆祝真理的圣灵当年首次倾注入信徒的日子,当那火焰显现,分开落在各人头上,他们就立时进入了圣灵的生命。

  虽然在五旬节那天,耶路撒冷有"从天下各国来"(使徒行传2:5)的人,他们的种族、国籍与语言像彩虹五彩缤纷的颜色一般多种多样,圣灵的绳索立即把他们连成了紧密的一群,他们开始了"凡物公用"(徒2:44)。

Prayer 禱告

Open our eyes, Father, to catch glimpses of the Holy Spirit's life in our brothers and sisters, and to celebrate the Spirit's presence in them, affirming them. In Jesus' name, Amen.

父啊,求祢开我们的眼睛,使我们可以在弟兄姊妹身上瞥见圣灵的生命,并因圣灵住在他们里面而欢喜快乐,就像他们也为我欢喜快乐一样。奉耶稣的名求,阿们。
