• 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.

9 characteristics of the Christian Life

A life free from all sins

Matthrew 1:21 她将要生一个儿子,你要给祂起名叫耶稣,因祂要亲自将祂的百姓从他们的罪里救出来
And she will bear a son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins.

A life in intimate fellowship with God

Luke 1:74 叫我们既从仇敌手中被救出来,就可以一生一世在祂面前,坦然无惧的用圣和义事奉祂。
To grant us that we, having been delivered out of the hand of our enemies, might serve Him without fear, In holiness and righteousness before Him all our days.

A fully-satisfied life in the Lord

John 4:14 人若喝我所赐的水,就永远不渴;我所赐的水,要在他里面成为泉源,直涌入永远的生命。
But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall by no means thirst forever; but the water that I will give him will become in him a fountain of water gushing up into eternal life.

A heart-touching life

John 7:37 节期的末日,就是最大之日,耶稣站着高声说,人若渴了,可以到我这里来喝。信入我的人,就如经上所说,从他腹中要流出活水的江河来
Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes into Me, as the Scripture said, out of his innermost being shall flow rivers of living water.

A life free from the power of sin

Acts 3:26 神既兴起祂的仆人,就先差祂到你们这里来,祝福你们,叫你们各人回转,离开邪恶。
To you first, God, having raised up His Servant, has sent Him to bless you in turning each of you away from your wicked deeds.

Romans 6:1-2 这样,我们可说什么?我们可以仍留在罪中,叫恩典增多么?绝对不可!我们这向罪死了的人,岂可仍在罪中活着?
What then shall we say? Should we continue in sin that grace may abound? Absolutely not! We who have died to sin, how shall we still live in it?

Romans 6:14 罪必不能作主管辖你们,因你们不在律法之下,乃在恩典之下。
For sin will not lord it over you, for you are not under the law but under grace.

Romans 8:1 如此,现今那些在基督耶稣里的,就没有定罪了。因为生命之灵的律,在基督耶稣里已经释放了我,使我脱离了罪与死的律
There is now then no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has freed me in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and of death.

An environment-overcoming life

Romans 8:35 谁能使我们与基督的爱隔绝?难道是患难么?是困苦么?是逼迫么?是饥饿么?是赤身么?是危险么?是刀剑么?
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation or anguish or persecution or famine or nakedness or peril or sword?

Romans 8:37 然而藉着那爱我们的,在这一切的事上,我们已经得胜有余了。
But in all these things we more than conquer through Him who loved us.

2 Cor. 2:14 感谢神,祂常在基督里,在凯旋的行列中帅领我们,并藉着我们在各处显扬那因认识基督而有的香气;
But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in the Christ and manifests the savor of the knowledge of Him through us in every place.

A life with the ability to do good

Eph. 2:10 我们原是神的杰作,在基督耶稣里,为着神早先预备好,要我们行在其中的善良事工创造的。
For we are His masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand in order that we would walk in them.

A light-filled life

John 8:12 于是耶稣又对众人讲论说,我是世界的光,跟从我的,就绝不在黑暗里行,必要得着生命的光
Again therefore Jesus spoke to them, saying, I am the light of the world; he who follows Me shall by no means walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

A wholly-sanctified life

1 Thessalo 5:23 且愿和平的神,亲自全然圣别你们,又愿你们的灵、与魂、与身子得蒙保守,在我们主耶稣基督来临的时候,得以完全,无可指摘
And the God of peace Himself sanctify you wholly, and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
