• 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.

To be like Christ in His attributes

In His Nature
2 Peter 1:4 藉这荣耀和美德,祂已将又宝贵又极大的应许赐给我们,叫你们既逃离世上从情欲来的败坏,就藉着这些应许,得有分于神的性情
Through which He has granted to us precious and exceedingly great promises that through these you might become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption which is in the world by lust.

In His Manifestation
1 John 3:2 亲爱的,我们现在是神的儿女,将来如何,还未显明;但我们晓得祂若显现,我们必要像祂;因为我们必要看见祂,正如祂所是的。
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.

In His Love
John 13:34 我赐给你们一条新诫命,乃是叫你们彼此相爱,正如我爱你们,为使你们也彼此相爱
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
John 15:12 你们要彼此相爱,像我爱你们一样,这就是我的诫命。
This is My commandment, that you love one another even as I have loved you.

In His Meekness
Matt. 11:29 我心里柔和谦卑,因此你们要负我的轭,且要跟我学,你们魂里就必得安息;
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

In His Humility
2:3-8 凡事都不私图好争,也不贪图虚荣,只要心思卑微,各人看别人比自己强;各人不单看重自己的长处,也看重别人的。你们里面要思念基督耶稣里面所思念的:祂本有神的形状,不以自己与神同等为强夺之珍,紧持不放,反而倒空自己,取了奴仆的形状,成为人的样式;既显为人的样子,就降卑自己,顺从至死,且死在十字架上。
Doing nothing by way of selfish ambition nor by way of vainglory, but in lowliness of mind considering one another more excellent than yourselves; Not regarding each his own virtues, but each the virtues of others also. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus, Who, existing in the form of God, did not consider being equal with God a treasure to be grasped, But emptied Himself, taking the form of a slave, becoming in the likeness of men; And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, becoming obedient even unto death, and that the death of a cross.

In His Forgiving
Col. 3:13 倘若这人与那人有嫌隙,总要彼此容忍,彼此饶恕;主怎样饶恕了你们,你们也要怎样饶恕人。
Bearing one another and forgiving one another, if anyone should have a complaint against anyone; even as the Lord forgave you, so also should you forgive.

In His Suffering
1 Peter 2:19-20 人若因着对神的感觉而忍受忧愁,受冤屈之苦,就是甜美的。你们若因犯罪挨拳打而忍耐,有什么可夸耀的?但你们若因行善受苦而忍耐,这在神乃是甜美的。
For this is grace, if anyone, because of a consciousness of God, bears sorrows by suffering unjustly. For what glory is it if, while sinning and being buffeted, you endure? But if, while doing good and suffering, you endure, this is grace with God.

In His Self-sacrifice
Ephesians 5:2 也要在爱里行事为人,正如基督爱我们,为我们舍了自己,作供物和祭物献与神,成为馨香之气。
And walk in love, even as Christ also loved us and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling savor.
1 John 3:16 主为我们舍命,在此我们就知道何为爱;我们也当为弟兄舍命
In this we know love, that He laid down His life on our behalf, and we ought to lay down our lives on behalf of the brothers.

In His Self-denial
Matt. 16:24 于是耶稣对门徒说,若有人要跟从我,就当否认己,背起他的十字架,并跟从我
Then Jesus said to His disciples, If anyone wants to come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me.
Romans 15:1-3 我们刚强的人,应该担代不刚强之人的软弱,不求自己的喜悦。我们各人要叫邻舍喜悦,使他得益处,被建造。因为基督也不求自己的喜悦,反而如经上所记:“辱骂你之人的辱骂,都落在我身上。”
But we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those who are weak and not to please ourselves. Let each of us please his neighbor with a view to what is good for building up. For Christ also did not please Himself, but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached You fell upon Me.”

In His Receiving
15:7    所以你们要彼此接纳,如同基督接纳你们一样,使荣耀归与神。
Therefore receive one another, as Christ also received you to the glory of God.
