基督的靈-第三篇-在聖靈裏敬拜-第10~11段

本篇結語

「時候將到,如今就是了,那真正敬拜父的,要在聖靈和真實裏敬拜祂,因為父尋找這樣敬拜祂的人。」是的,父尋找這樣敬拜祂的人,祂也必要尋見這等人,因為祂自己要成就這件事。祂曾差遣祂自己的兒子來尋找、拯救迷失者,好讓我們有可能成為這樣敬拜祂的人;我們也應該變成真正敬拜祂的人,能夠通過裂開之肉體的幔子,進入至聖所,並在聖靈裏敬拜祂,因為祂已經向我們施行了救恩。而後,祂又差遣祂兒子的靈,就是基督的靈,要在我們裏面成為基督所是的真實、實際,成為基督真正的臨在,要將基督曾在世上活出的超特生命,現今也交通到我們裏面。讚美神!時候將到,如今就是了,我們現今正活在這一超特的時刻,現在,凡真正敬拜父的人都應當在聖靈和真實裏敬拜祂。讓我們相信這事,聖靈開始賜下並內住在人裏面,都是基於這個原因:因為父尋找這樣敬拜祂的人。讓我們因信喜樂!因我們能夠達到這一步,我們能夠成為真正敬拜父的人,因為父早已開始將聖靈賜給人了。

讓我們在聖別的敬畏中領悟,祂是內住在我們裏面。讓我們的肉體完全靜默下來,謙卑地順服祂的引導和教導。讓我們在信心中等候神,等候祂的諸般作為。並且,讓我們實行這一種敬拜。且讓每一次對於聖靈工作的新洞見、每一次在祂內住中的信心操練、以及每一次對祂作為的新經歷,都能夠在這一種敬拜中達到榮耀的完結:將父當得的愛慕敬拜歸給祂,將讚美、感謝、尊崇、和愛歸給祂,這些都是獨獨歸祂所有的。

‘The hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth. For such doth the Father seek to be His worshippers.’ Yes, the Father seeks such worshippers, and what He seeks He finds, because He Himself works it. That we might be such worshippers, He sent His own Son to seek and to save the lost; to save us with this salvation, that we should become His true worshippers, who enter in through the rent veil of the flesh, and worship Him in the Spirit. And then He sent the Spirit of His Son, the Spirit of Christ, to be in us the Truth and Reality of what Christ had been, His actual presence, to communicate within us the very life that Christ had lived. Blessed be God! the hour has come, and is now, we are living in it this very moment, that the true worshippers shall worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth. Let us believe it; the Spirit has been given, and dwells within us, for this one reason, because the Father seeks such worshippers. Let us rejoice in the confidence that we can attain to it, we can be true worshippers, because the Holy Spirit has been given.

Let us realize in holy fear and awe that He dwells within us. Let us humbly, in the silence of the flesh, yield ourselves to His leading and teaching. Let us wait in faith before God for His workings. And let us practice this worship. Let every new insight into what the work of the Spirit means, every exercise of faith in His indwelling or experience of His working, terminate in this as its highest glory: the adoring worship of the Father, the giving Him the Praise, the Thanks, the Honour, and Love which are His alone.
