一体一灵 [One Body One Spirit]

书卷:以弗所书(新约)
作者:保罗

以弗所书4章4节:“身体只有一个,圣灵只有一个,正如你们蒙召,同有一个指望。”

今日默想:身体既是只有一个,全地的众教会只能摆出一个身体的见证。身体之所以是一,乃因为圣灵是一。人外面所表显的合一,是基于人里面所拥有合一的本质。凡没有从圣灵重生或被圣灵内住的人,根本不能被“合一”在教会里。圣灵既是只有一位,就我们所受的都是同一的灵。灵与灵必然能够相通与相交。基督的灵一定把人带进基督的身体里,不然,必不是基督的灵。教会的合一,不是组织上的合一,乃是灵命上的合一。信徒的指望既是只有一个,眼前的差别无论有多大,将来有一天我们必要同得一个指望,所以信徒相处,应当放远眼光。凡是不存一体、一灵之心的人,决不配领受永生的指望。

Book: Ephesians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Ephesians 4:4 :“There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling;”

Today’s Meditation: Since there is only one body, all churches must reveal the witness of one body. There is only one body because there is only one Spirit. The unification shown on our outside is based on the unification nature in us. Whoever that is not reborn in the Spirit or without Spirit in him cannot be “unified” into churches. Since there is only one Spirit, the Spirit we bear is the same. There is naturally communication between Spirit and Spirit. The Spirit of Christ must be able to bring people to church. Otherwise, it is not His Spirit. The unification of churches is not about the organisation, but the spiritual status. Since we are called in one hope, we will be getting the same hope one day regardless how our current situation differs. Therefore, we should look into further prospect. Whoever that does not practise the mindset of one body and one Spirit does not deserve the eternal calling of God.
