聖靈的寶劍 The Sword of the Spirit

要穿戴神所賜的全副軍裝,就能抵擋魔鬼的詭計…拿著聖靈的寶劍。(弗6:11, 17b)

真正的基督徒一定會面臨屬靈的爭戰,因為魔鬼會用各樣的詭計,或在神面前控告你,或與你為友,或用試探試煉,誘使你遠離神。

因此,爭戰中必須穿戴全副軍裝,拿著聖靈的寶劍。寶劍必須一直拿著,不能放下,不能放鬆,才能提供保護,否則敵人會趁虛而入。但真正保護人的不是寶劍,而是拿寶劍者是否懂得劍道、是否勤奮操練劍道,是否精通劍道;拿寶劍者與寶劍的親疏,會影響寶劍的使用,與聖靈越親密,寶劍在手裡發揮功能越大。因此認識聖靈、順服聖靈、渴望聖靈、活出信心生命,直接影響聖靈寶劍的發揮。

聖靈的寶劍對我們的保護,取決於我們對聖靈的理解、順服,理解越多,寶劍發揮的功能就多,正如劍道體悟越深,就越能有效用劍。清楚聖靈在我們裡面的諸多的感動,以致結出聖靈的果子。

領受聖靈的第一步是認罪悔改。聖靈使我們在主裡得自由,有不犯罪的自由,並不被死亡挾制。聖靈內住使我們愛慕神、渴慕靈奶。被聖靈充滿的人,是一個為主做見證的生命,會活出謹慎自守的生命─謹守主日、尊重主日,常常省查自己,並願火熱禱告。

Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

Take the sword of the Spirit...  Ephesians 6:11, 17b

       Real Christians will definitely face spiritual warfare, because Satan will use all kinds of tricks to lead you away from the Lord by accusing you, being friends with you, tempting you, or putting you through trials.

        Therefore, we have to put on the full armor of God during the battle and take up the sword of Spirit. The sword must be held all the times. We can’t put it down nor relax. It protects us from the enemy. However, what really protects people is not the sword, but whether the swordsman knows how to use a sword, diligently practices, and is proficient in sword skills. How intimate the swordsman is to the sword affects the usage of the sword. The more intimate you are with the Holy Spirit, the stronger the power of sword of Spirit. Therefore, knowing the Holy Spirit, obeying the Holy Spirit, and desiring the Holy Spirit, while living a life of faith will directly affect the performance of the sword of Spirit.   

The protection of the sword of the Holy Spirit for us depends on our understanding and obedience to the Holy Spirit. The more understanding of Holy Spirit you have, the more you will be able to use the sword of the Spirit. Similarly, the deeper your knowledge of how to use a sword, the more effectively you will be able to use the sword.  Then you will be sensitive to the Holy Spirit within, so that the fruit of the Spirit is produced.

      The first step to receive the Holy Spirit is to confess and repent.  The Holy Spirit gives us freedom in the Lord, freedom from sin, and freedom from death’s control. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit makes us love God and long for spiritual milk.  The person who is filled with the Holy Spirit is a witness for the Lord. Live a sober life guarding oneself - observing the Lord’s Day, respecting the Lord’s Day, often examining oneself and willing to pray fervently.

敬虔 Godliness

大哉,敬虔的奧祕!無人不以為然:就是神在肉身顯現,被聖靈稱義(或作:在靈性稱義),被天使看見,被傳於外邦,被世人信服,被接在榮耀裡。~提前3:16~ 敬虔是一種態度,一種氣質,是一種品格,合起來是一種生命。敬虔是基督徒當活出的生命品格。弟兄姊妹應當常常反省自己是否有這種生命。寫教牧書信的使徒保羅深深認識這敬虔的奧秘,活出這敬虔的生命,進而傳揚敬虔的奧秘。因此,我們在神的家中首先要認識,才能傳揚,這

道 Logos

聖經中有個很重要的字─道(Logos),其內涵十分豐富,簡單來說是神的話語,其中包含了萬事萬物存在的意義和目的,以及其運行的法則(包括救恩),並且受造物當遵守的道路。聖子耶穌基督親自「道」成肉身, 祂本是神,與聖父原為一,以人的樣式活在我們當中。我們感謝神,因著那生命之道,聖經,神的話語成為我們思想和行為的準則和方向。 今日基督徒在價值觀和世界觀上都面對空前的挑戰。怎樣不效法這個世界,而跟隨神的腳
