身子肢体 [Body and Members]

书卷:哥林多前书(新约)
作者:保罗

哥林多前书12章27节:“你们就是基督的身子,并且各自作肢体。”

今日默想:我们是各自作肢体。肢体和细胞不同。细胞,少了一个也无关紧要;但是肢体就不能缺少一个。可惜有许多基督徒的情形,像身体上的细胞,不像肢体。他在基督的身体上没有专一的用处,没有尽他所当尽的本分。不把生命供应基督的身体,就叫基督的身体受亏损。“基督的身子”说出我们信徒在生命和灵性上是合一的;“各自作肢体”说出我们信徒在恩赐和功用上是不同的。我们在教会中要学习以弗所书4章3节一面要竭力保守灵里的合一,一面也要照着各个肢体的功用,各尽其职

Book: 1 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

1 Corinthians 12:27 :“Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.”

Today’s Meditation: We are members individually. Members are different than cells. Cells can still survive without the other cells, but members must work together. Many Christians nowadays are like cells in body instead of an actual member. They have no actual contribution and duty to the body of Christ. We are telling the body of Christ to suffer loss if we do not provide to His body. “body of Christ” tells our unity of life and spiritual in Christ while “members individually” tells our different graces and uses in Christ. We must practise the teaching of Ephesians 4:3 in church that we need to endeavour to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace while delivering our own individual use by what every joint supplies.
