基督的靈-第十五篇-聖靈的澆灌-第15~16段

末了的話

1.且讓我們試著接受這一思想:當耶穌離去到天上之時,祂絕不認為一旦祂回到榮耀之中,將會造成祂自己與祂忠信跟隨者之間的絲毫分隔。那靈的任務,正是來向門徒們確保並給予主應許的同在,其中並包含了聖靈工作一面的福分,因祂使主的同在本身成為我們盡職所需之神的能力。

2.當我們說某人的身體完全健康時,必然意指他身上的每一肢體都是健康的。同樣,聖靈若要在召會中健全地運行工作,也必須每一位信徒個人都是健康的。但願今後我們都為此禱告並勞苦,使那藉著內住之靈帶來的基督同在,能夠成為我們合一禱告與服事的準備,好叫「五旬節」得以不斷重現在我們敬拜的年日中,叫地上這班等候、接待、並敬拜祂的人,得以不斷被來自天上基督的靈所遇見。

1. Do let us try and take in the thought that when Jesus went to heaven, He could not bear the thought that His returning to His glory should cause the slightest separation between Himself and His faithful followers. The Mission of the Spirit was to secure and give to them His promised Presence. in this consists the blessedness of the Spirit’s work, and it is this makes Him the power of God in us for our work.

2. The perfect health of a body means the health of every member. The healthy action of the Spirit in the Church requires the health of every individual believer. Let us pray and labour for this, that the Presence of Christ by the indwelling Spirit in every believer may be our preparation for the united prayer and service which shall make our seasons of worship one ever-repeated Pentecost: the waiting, receptive, worshipping company on earth met by the Spirit of Christ from heaven.
