• Christ and Church Life and Building Spirit and Bride


    As a lover of Christ and a pursuer of truth, I write down my joys, memories and reflections.

    May God lead us all into the secret of His presence, and build us into the oneness of His body in love.

Believers as the sons of God

1:9-10 耶和华说,给他起名叫罗阿米,因为你们不是我的子民,我也不属于你们。然而以色列的人数必如海沙,不可量,不可数;从前在什么地方对他们说,你们不是我的子民,将来在那里必对他们说,你们是活神的儿子。 And He said, Call his name Lo-ammi, For you are not My people, And I will not belong to you. But the number of the children of Israel will be like the sand of the sea, Which cannot be measured or numbered; And in the place where it will be said to them, You are not My people, It will be said to them, You are the sons of the living God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the sons of God.

1:12 凡接受祂的,就是信入祂名的人,祂就赐他们权柄,成为神的儿女。这等人不是从血生的,不是从肉体的意思生的,也不是从人的意思生的,乃是从神生的。
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the authority to become children of God, to those who believe into His name, Who were begotten not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

8:14-17 因为凡被神的灵引导的,都是神的儿子。你们所受的不是奴役的灵,仍旧害怕;所受的乃是儿子名分的灵,在这灵里,我们呼叫:阿爸,父。那灵自己同我们的灵见 证我们是神的儿女。既是儿女,便是后嗣,就是神的后嗣,和基督同作后嗣,只要我们与祂一同受苦,好叫我们也与祂一同得荣耀。
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you have not received a spirit of slavery bringing you into fear again, but you have received a spirit of sonship in which we cry, Abba, Father! The Spirit Himself witnesses with our spirit that we are children of God. And if children, heirs also; on the one hand, heirs of God; on the other, joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him that we may also be glorified with Him.
8:19-21 受造之物正在专切期望着,热切等待神的众子显示出来。因为受造之物服在虚空之下,不是自己愿意的,乃是因那叫它服的,指望着受造之物自己,也要从败坏的奴役得着释放,得享神儿女之荣耀的自由。
For the anxious watching of the creation eagerly awaits the revelation of the sons of God. For the creation was made subject to vanity, not of its own will, but because of Him who subjected it, In hope that the creation itself will also be freed from the slavery of corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
For we know that the whole creation groans together and travails in pain together until now. And not only so, but we ourselves also, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan in ourselves, eagerly awaiting sonship, the redemption of our body. For we were saved in hope. But a hope that is seen is not hope, for who hopes for what he sees?
8:29 因为神所预知的人,祂也预定他们模成神儿子的形像,使祂儿子在许多弟兄中作长子。
Because those whom He foreknew, He also predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the Firstborn among many brothers;
9:8 这就是说,肉体的儿女不就是神的儿女,惟独那应许的儿女才算是后裔。
That is, it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are accounted as the seed.
9:25-26 就如神在何西阿书上也说,“那本来不是我子民的,我要称为我的子民;本来不是蒙爱的,我要称为蒙爱的;从前在什么地方对他们说,你们不是我的子民,将来就在那里称他们为
活神的儿子。” As He also says in Hosea, “I will call those who were not My people My people, and her who was not beloved beloved; And it shall be that in the place where it was said to them, You are not My people, there shall they be called sons of the living God.”

3:26 因为你们众人藉着相信基督耶稣,都是
For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

约翰一书-1 John
Behold what manner of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and we are. Because of this the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not yet been manifested what we will be. We know that if He is manifested, we will be like Him because we will see Him even as He is.
Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been begotten of God, and everyone who loves Him who has begotten loves him also who has been begotten of Him. In this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and do His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome. For everything that has been begotten of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory which has overcome the world — our faith. And who is he who overcomes the world except him who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
