歌罗西书2:6-12
耶稣 —— 教会的元首
"你们在他里面也得了丰盛。他是各样执政掌权者的元首。" 西2:10

  教会是一个身体, 耶稣是这个身体的头。圣经腓立比书2:8-9记载说, 耶稣"既有人的样子, 就自己卑微, 存心顺服, 以至于死, 且死在十字架上。所以神将他升为至高, 又赐给他那超乎万名之上的名。"神更立祂为教会的元首, 使祂超越一切属灵的权柄和势力。

  耶稣是教会的救主和生命的源头, 祂来不是要以暴政来治理教会, 乃是以谦卑尽心服侍;祂是教会的根基, 也是教会的创建者、所有者和保护者。

  耶稣的爱永不改变, 永不止息。祂用自己的牺牲来救赎教会, 用十架的宝血来洁净教会。

  藉着祂的能力, 教会正在努力成为纯净、圣洁, 荣耀的新妇, 预备把自己献给耶稣(以弗所书5:27;启示录21:2)。

  教会是身体, 耶稣是教会的头, 今天, 你是否属于这个身体呢? 只要相信耶稣, 你便自然而然成为教会的一员了。不要轻忽这个美好的名分, 有些人认为教会只不过是历史的遗迹无关紧要, 他们认为教会已经被新颖的属灵形态取代了。切勿相信这些谎言!

  在今天, 教会仍然是基督在世上的身体, 是祂的手和脚来满足这个世界深切的需要。

祷告

圣洁的神啊, 无论是身体和灵魂, 我全然都属于祢。能够明白基督的爱和保护是何等大的安慰。主啊, 我是耶稣身体的一部分, 求祢帮助我去服侍祂。奉耶稣的名祷告, 阿们!

Colossians 2:6-12 歌罗西书2:6-12
jesus, the head of the church 耶稣 —— 教会的元首
"In Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority." —Colossians 2:10 "你们在他里面也得了丰盛。他是各样执政掌权者的元首。" 西2:10

The church is one body, and Jesus is the head of that body. Because Jesus "humbled himself by becoming obedient to death on a cross" to redeem his church, the Father "exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name" (Philippians 2:8-9). God also placed him above all spiritual authorities and strongholds as head of the church.

Jesus is the Savior of the church and its source of life. He came not to rule it with tyranny but to serve it with humility. He is the foundation, the builder, the owner, and the protector of the church.

Jesus loves the church with an everlasting, persevering, sacrificial, and sanctifying love.

And in his strength the church is preparing to present herself to him as a pure, holy, and glorious bride (Ephesians 5:27; Revelation 21:2).

Are you a part of this body, of which Christ is the head? If you believe in Christ, you are inescapably a member of his church. Don’t belittle the wonder of your membership. There are those who dismiss the church as a relic of past history. They think new forms of spirituality have made the church of Christ obsolete. Don’t believe it! The church is Christ’s body on earth today—his hands and feet to a world in need.

Prayer 禱告

Holy God, I belong wholly to you, in body and soul. What a comfort to know that Christ loves and protects me. Help me to serve as part of his body. Amen.

圣洁的神啊, 无论是身体和灵魂, 我全然都属于祢。能够明白基督的爱和保护是何等大的安慰。主啊, 我是耶稣身体的一部分, 求祢帮助我去服侍祂。奉耶稣的名祷告, 阿们!
