背誦:有可信的話說:我們若與基督同死,也必與他同活。(提後2:11)

Memory Verse:  This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, we shall also live with Him. (II Timothy 2:11)

 

(A)   神對舊人最大的否定就是十字架,最大的肯定乃是在基督裡的復活

God’s greatest denial to the old flesh is the cross; God’s greatest affirmation is the resurrection in Christ

 

(B)   『基督的內住』乃是為了實現不再是我,乃是基督

       “The in-dwelling of Christ” is to actualize “No longer I, but Christ”

 

(a)   不再是我』- 與基督同死

“No longer I” – Dead with Christ

 

1)不再犯罪 "死的人,是脫離了罪" ( 6:6-7) 

1) No longer sin – “For he who has died has been freed from sin(Romans 6:6-7) 

 

2)不再隨從肉体 "已經把肉体連肉体的邪情私慾同釘在十字架上 ( 5:24)

2) No longer walk according to the flesh – “… have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.” (Galatians 5:24)

 

3)  不再愛世界-  "就我而論,世界已經釘在十字架上..." ( 6:14)

3)  No longer love the world – “the world has been crucified to me …” (Galatians 6:14)

 

4)  不再是我 "已經與基督同釘十字架,現在活著的不再是我..." ( 2:20)

4)   No longer I – “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live …” (Galatians 2:20)

 

(b)  乃是基督』- 與基督同活

“But Christ” – Alive with Christ

 

§ 神既有豐富的憐憫,因他愛我們的大愛, 當我們死在過犯中的時候,便叫我們與基督一同活過來一同坐在天上,…( 2:4-6)

§ But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,  even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ … and made us sit together in the heavenly places,…(Ephesians 2:4-6)

 

§ 我們藉著洗禮歸入死,和他一同埋葬,原是叫我們一舉一動有新生的樣式,像基督一樣 ( 6:4)

§  Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead … even so we also should walk in newness of life  (Romans 6:4)

 

§ 我活著就是基督 ( 1:21)

§ For to me, to live is Christ (Philippians 1:21)

 

(C)  實行的路

  The Practical Way

(1)  認識『與主同死、同復活』的事實 ( 6:3-8)

Know the fact of “being dead and resurrected with Christ” (Romans 6:3-8)

 

(2)  不只要獻身『活著為基督』,更要追求『活著是基督』

Not only consecrate to “live for Christ”, but also pursue “to live is Christ”

 

§ 一人既替眾人死,眾人就都死了; 並且他替眾人死,是叫那些活著的人不再為自己活,乃為替他們死而復活的主活。(林後5:14-15)

§ … If One died for all, then all died; and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again. (2 Corinthians 5:14-15)

 

§ 無論是生是死,總叫基督在我身上照常顯大,我活著就是基督 ( 1:20b-21)

§ .. As always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death.  For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. (Philippians 1:20b-21)

 

(3)  積極操練在凡事上活出基督

Actively practice living out Christ in all things

§ 我們這活著的人是常為耶穌被交於死地,使耶穌的生在我們這必死的身上顯明出來。  這樣看來,死是在我們身上發動,生卻在你們身上發動。(林後4:11-12)

§ For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.  So then death is working in us, but life in you.  (2 Corinthians 4:11-12)
