主題:「不隨從肉體,只隨從聖靈」

Theme: “Do Not Walk According to the Flesh, but According to the Spirit”

 

(二)「只」隨從聖靈 “But” According to the Spirit

 

(1) 對於聖靈的內住需有真實的認識

Need true knowledge of “the indwelling of the Holy Spirit”

 

   我要求父,父就另外賜給你們一位保惠師,叫他永遠與你們同在,就是真理的聖靈,乃世人不能接受的;因為不見他,也不認識他。你們卻認識他,因他常與你們同在,也要在你們裏面。(約 14:16-17

And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.” (John 14:16-17)

 

   豈不知你們的身子就是聖靈的殿嗎?這聖靈是從 神而來,住在你們裏頭的;並且你們不是自己的人。(林前6:19

Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?” (1 Cor 6:19)

 

(2) 對於「聖靈大能的運行」需有第一手的真經歷

Need firsthand experience of “the mighty working of the Holy Spirit”

 

    神能照著運行在我們心裏的大力充充足足地成就一切,超過我們所求所想的。(弗 3:20

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” (Ephesians 3:20)

 

    我們有這寶貝放在瓦器裏,要顯明這莫大的能力是出於 神,不是出於我們。 我們四面受敵,卻不被困住;心裏作難,卻不至失望; 遭逼迫,卻不被丟棄;打倒了,卻不至死亡。林後4:7-9

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;  persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed—” (2 Cor 4:7-9)

 

(3) 「隨從聖靈,體貼聖靈」的有福生活

The blessed life of “walking according to the Holy Spirit, and being spiritually minded”

    如今,那些在基督耶穌裏的就不定罪了。因為賜生命聖靈的律,在基督耶穌裏釋放了我,使我脫離罪和死的律了。使律法的義成就在我們這不隨從肉體、只隨從聖靈的人身上。(羅 81-2, 4

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death… that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1-2, 4)

 

    因為隨從聖靈的人體貼聖靈的事。 體貼肉體的,就是死;體貼聖靈的,乃是生命、平安。(羅 8:5-6

For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.  For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” (Romans 8:5-6)

 

    “…我無論在甚麼景況都可以知足,這是我已經學會了隨事隨在,我都得了祕訣。 我靠著那加給我力量的,凡事都能做。(腓 4:11-13

“… I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content… Everywhere and in all things I have learned… I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:11-13)
