與聖靈相親

經文: 「願聖靈的感動,常與你們眾人同在。」(哥林多後書十三:14)

從這節經文,我們看出聖靈的工作以及祂其中之一的特色。藉著聖靈天父與耶穌得以合而為一,藉著聖靈在上帝的生命裡,天父與耶穌可彼此相連,因為聖靈是天父的本質與內涵,是一種生命共同體。

藉著聖靈我們可以與上帝天父、神子耶穌相契合,如同經上所記:「所以知道上帝住在我們裡面,是因祂所賜給我們的聖靈。」(約壹三:24)是的,藉著聖靈我們可以經歷到與天父及耶穌相契相合的愛。

身為上帝的兒女,藉著內住的聖靈,我們可以與天父及耶穌緊緊相合;基督徒之間既互為肢體,也當彼此相愛,不自私自利,因為我們同為一個身體,共有一個聖靈。既是如此,我們弟兄姐妺之間,當力求合一,竭力追求和睦。教會中為何看不到聖靈的大工作呢?原因之一就是太少人追求靈裡的合一。五旬節聖靈降臨,那是因為一百二十多位門徒同心合意地禱告,他們水乳交融仿若一體,他們接受聖靈,又彼此相愛相合。

在聖餐桌上我們共用餅和杯,表明弟兄姐妺同為耶穌的身體,就當彼此相愛,而且不只在言語上,還要在行動上表現出來,尤其肢體在有患難的時候,更當顯出愛心伸出援手。「聖靈要常與眾人同在,直到永遠。」要記得加拉太書所說的聖靈果子,並常在禱告中求上帝賜下這幾種德性,將它們在生活中表彰出來,讓弟兄姐妺們感受到你所流露的基督之愛。

在天上天父、耶穌、聖靈是合而為一、三位一體的。你渴慕被聖靈充滿嗎?讓我們完全地將自己交託在上帝手中,懇求祂賜下合一的靈,使得教會中各個肢體,都能彼此相顧,在愛中彼此建造,成就以基督為首的屬靈身體。

THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE SPIRIT

Scripture: “The Communion of the Holy Ghost be with you.”—2 COR. xiii. 14.

In this verse we have one of the chief characteristics and activities of the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit through whom the Father and Son are one, and through whom they have fellowship with each other in the Godhead. For the Holy Spirit is the true life of the Godhead.

We have fellowship with the Father and the Son through the Spirit. “Our fellowship is with the Father and the Son.” “Hereby know we that He abideth in us, by the Spirit which He has given us” (1 John iii. 24). Through the Spirit we know and experience the fellowship of love in the life with the Father and Son.

Through the Spirit we, as God’s children, have fellowship one with another. In the child of God there should be nothing of the selfishness and self-interest that seeketh its own welfare. We are members of one Body. “It is one Body and one Spirit.” And through the Spirit the unity of the Body must be maintained. One reason that the Spirit does not work with greater power in the Church is that the unity of the Spirit is too little sought after. At Pentecost, after ten days spent in united prayer, the one hundred and twenty seemed melted together into one body. They received the Spirit in fellowship with one another.

We have the fellowship in the bread and wine when we meet at the Communion-table; we have also fellowship one with another in the trials of other members of the Body. Always it is: “The fel¬lowship of the Spirit be with you now and evermore.” Remember the words of the text in Galatians about the fruits of the Spirit, and present it to the Spirit in prayer, and so make manifest our love for all God’s children.

In heaven there is an eternal fellowship of love between Father and Son through the Spirit. Do we really long to be filled with the Spirit ? Let us offer ourselves to God, beseeching Him to grant us the unity and the fellowship of the Spirit with all mem¬bers of Christ’s Body.
