竭力保守合一 [Endeavour to Keep Unity]

书卷:以弗所书(新约)
作者:保罗

以弗所书4章3节:“用和平彼此联络,竭力保守圣灵所赐合而为一的心。”

今日默想:没有人能不与任何信徒交接来往,而单独地过着个人的灵性生活。主是在十字架上成就了和平,十字架的工作乃是制造和平.只有当我们取用十字架的原则,把自己钉在十字架上,才能真正与别人和平。和平是信徒之间彼此联络的方法,但不应被用来当作结党的手段。信徒不能制造合一,却能破坏合一。“合一”是一个原来就有的属灵事实,我们的责任乃是持守。“竭力保守”表明保守合一是需要付出代价的。合一是在灵里面的,不是在行政组织上的统一。信徒若不强调自己的背景与习惯,就会希奇地发现虽然在外面有许多的不同,但在我们里面却有一个最重要的东西是相同的,就是灵里的生命。

Book: Ephesians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Ephesians 4:3 :“endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”

Today’s Meditation: No one can have spiritual life without interacting with other believers. Lord fulfilled peace on the cross. The cross is to create peace. We can only have peace with others when we crucify ourselves on the cross with the principle of cross. Peace is the way to interact with other believers. However, peace should not be a method for selfish ambitions. We cannot create unity while destroying it. “unity” is an existing spiritual matter where our responsibility is to keep it. “endeavouring” tells that prices need to be paid to keep it. Unity in spiritual is different than administrative organisational unity. When we do not emphaise of our backgrounds and habits, we will realise that we all have the same thing, that is the spiritual life in us despite of our differences on the outside.
