主題:「跟隨祂的腳蹤行

Theme: “Follow Jesus In His Steps

 

 () 祂是主,是基督

He is the Lord, the Christ

[成為主的見證人,跟隨衪走生命的路
Be the Lord’s witnesses and follow Him in the way of life

(1) 真實生命改變與成長,乃是由肯『捨己跟從主』開始

Real growth and transformation of life starts from the willingness to “deny oneself and to follow the Lord”

v 『捨己跟從主』不只說到我們肯在生活中『讓主居首位』,更是在生命的境界裡讓基督來替代我們的舊造。

“Deny self to follow the Lord” not only speak of our willingness to “let the Lord have the first place” in our lives, but more importantly to allow Christ to replace our old creation in the realm of life.

-「若有人要跟從我,就當捨己,背起他的十字架來跟從我。因為,凡要救自己生命的,必喪掉生命;凡為我喪掉生命的,必得著生命人還能拿甚麼換生命呢?」“If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.  For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matt 16:24-26)

-「我是世界的光。跟從我的,就不在黑暗走,必要得著生命的光。」“I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” ( 8:12)

-「主啊,你有永生之道,我們還歸從誰呢“Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. “ ( 6:68)

 

(2) 衪是主是、基督,受膏來完成 神的旨意

He is the Lord, Christ, the Anointed One who came to full fill the will of God

-「你們釘在十字架上的這位耶穌,神已經立衪為主,為基督了。“Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.” (Acts 2:36)

因為萬有都是靠衪造的又是為衪造的。衪在萬有之先衪也是教會全體之首。衪是元始,是從死首先復生的,使衪可以在凡事上居首位。 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. (西Col 1:16-22)

 

(3) 跟隨耶穌走生命的路

Following Jesus to walk in the way of life

[真實的事奉與見証必然是在生命的境界裡-『惟有耶穌,永是耶穌』True service and testimony must be in the realm of life –“Jesus Only, Jesus ever”

a) 得著豐盛的生命

Receive the fullness of life

-我來了,是要叫羊得生命,並且得的更豐盛“… I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)

b) 流露基督馨香,活出基督榮美

Diffuse the fragrance of Christ, living out the beauty of Christ

-感謝 !常率領我們在基督誇勝,並藉著我們在各處顯揚那因認識基督而有的香氣 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. (林後2 Cor 2:14-15)

現在活著的不再是我,乃是基督在我面活著 “… it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.” (Gal 2:20)

c) 成為耶穌基督『道成肉身』的見証人

Be the witnesses of Jesus Christ through the “Word become flesh”

無論是生是死, 總叫基督在我身上照常顯大。因我活著就是基督… “… as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. “ (Phil 1:20-21)

大哉,敬虔的奧祕,無人不以為然﹗就是 神在肉身顯現“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh,” (提前1 Tim 3:16)
