基督的靈-第三篇-在聖靈裏敬拜-第07段

「那真正敬拜父的,要在聖靈和真實裏敬拜祂。」言下之意,並非所有敬拜父的人都是真正的敬拜者。可能有為數眾多熱誠的、真誠的敬拜,但卻不是在聖靈和真實裏的敬拜。心思可能極其充實,情感可能深受感動,意志可能強烈奮起,但論到站立在神真實之中的屬靈敬拜,成分可能微乎其微。信徒對聖經真理可能顯出熱切的愛慕,但這種愛慕放在那由人力量主導而非神運行主導的活動中,仍然可能不是神所尋求的、基督賜給的、聖靈吹動的敬拜。神是個靈,若要真正地敬拜祂,必須與神之間保持一致、和諧、合一,並在聖靈裏受牽引近到祂前。父尋找這樣敬拜祂的人。父神如何是一位無限的、完全的、聖別的靈,祂的兒女也必須在他的靈裏,返照出父神的所是。

‘The true worshippers worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth.’ All worshippers are not true worshippers. There may be a great deal of earnest honest worship without its being worship in Spirit and in Truth. The mind may be intensely occupied, the feelings may be deeply moved, the will may be mightily roused, while yet there is but little of the Spiritual Worship which stands in the Truth of God. There may be great attachment to Bible truth, and yet through the predominating activity of that which cometh not from God’s working but from man’s effort, it may not be the Christ–given, Spirit-breathed worship which God seeks. There must be accordance, harmony, unity between God, who is a Spirit, and the worshippers drawing near in the Spirit. Such doth the Father seek to worship Him. The Infinite, Perfect, Holy Spirit which God the Father is, must have some reflection in the spirit which is in the child.
