基督里长大成人 [Be a Perfect Man in Christ]

书卷:以弗所书(新约)
作者:保罗

以弗所书4章13节:“直等到我们众人在真道上同归于一,认识上帝的儿子,得以长大成人,满有基督长成的身量,”

今日默想:教会的目标,就是要“长大成人,满基督长成的身量”。达到这目标的路,乃是借着各种恩赐来成全圣徒,使“众人在信仰上,并对上帝儿子完全的认识上,同归于一”。人认识基督有多少,就会把多少的地位让给基督。信徒不只在真理上认识基督,并且也在经历上也认识基督,才算真实的认识上帝的儿子。认识真道把我们领向上帝的儿子,认识上帝的儿子却使我们成熟而至丰满。因此,追求认识上帝的儿子是我们追求的目标。只有真实认识上帝的儿子,才会叫我们生命趋向成熟,基督在教会中才有丰满的充满。

Book: Ephesians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Ephesians 4:13 :“till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;”

Today’s Meditation: The purpose of church is to ‘be a perfect man to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ”. The way to this goal is by using the graces giving to us for the work of ministry. This will make us to ‘come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God’. As we know more of Christ, we will give Him more. We not only must know Christ on the level of truth, but also to know Him on the level of experience in order to know Him well. The way of truth brings us to the Son of God. Knowing the Son of God can make us mature and abundant. Thus, pursuing after the Son of God should be our mutual goal. Only by truly understanding the Son of God will mature our life. In the end, Christ will bless churches with His abundance.
