2010 SVCA Retreat  主題住在基督裡》(Abiding in Christ)

2010 SCVA Summer Retreat Theme:  Abide in Christ (2)

(貳) 由約翰的教導來看住在基督裡》

– Through the Teachings of John

【註】:在約翰的書信裡常將『住在主裡面』和『住在神裡面』交互使用,我們特別要提醒的是:人之得以能『住在 神裡面』的前提乃是因為我們得以『在基督裡』,然後我們才可能『與基督一同藏在 神裏面(西 3:3) Note: In the epistles of John he often use the terms “abiding in the Lord” and “abiding in God” interchangeably.  A point of reminder: one is able to “abide in God” because he is first found “in Christ”.  Only then are we able to be “hidden with Christ in God” (Col 3:3)

(A)      住在愛裡

Abiding in Love

§      我們若彼此相愛,神就住在我們裏面,愛衪的心在我們裏面得以完全了。神就是愛,住在愛裡面的, 就是住在神裡面,神也住在他裡面。(約一4:12, 16) If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. (1 John 4:12-16)

(B)      住在生命聖靈裡

Abiding in the Holy Spirit of life

§      神將的靈賜給我們,從此就知道我們是住在裡面,也住 在我們裡面…15凡認耶穌為神兒子的,神就住在他裡面,他也住在神裡面。(約一4:13-15, 約一5:19-20) By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. (1 John 4:13-15, 5:19-20)

§      人有了 神的兒子就有生命,沒有 神的兒子就沒有生命。(約一5:12) He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. (1 John 5:12)

(C)      住在光裡

Abiding in the Light

(a)    不再犯罪 No longer sin

§      凡住在衪裡面的,就不犯罪,凡犯罪的,是未曾看見衪,也未曾認識衪。(約一3:6) Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him. (1 john 3:6)

(b)   遵行主道 Keeps the Lord’s words (v9,12-13)

§      凡遵守主道的,愛神的心在他裡面實在是完全的,從此我們知 道我們是在主裡面。人若說他住在主裡面,就該自己照主所行的去行 (約一2:5-6)…遵守神命令的,就住在神裡面,神也住在他裡面。(約一3:24a) But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked (1 John 2:5-6) Now he who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. (1 John 3:24)

(c)    順服恩膏 Obeying the Anointing

§      你們從主所受的恩膏,常存在你們心裡,並不用人教訓你們, 自有主的恩膏在凡事上教訓你們,這恩膏是真的,不是假的,你們要按這恩膏的教訓,住在主裡面。(約一2:27, 3:24b) But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him. (1 John 2:27, 3:24b)
