降下升上 [Descend and Ascend]

书卷:以弗所书(新约)
作者:保罗

以弗所书4章9节:“(既说升上,岂不是先降在地下吗?”
以弗所书4章10节:“那降下的,就是远升诸天之上要充满万有的。)”

今日默想:这两节圣经是让我们联想到基督的道成肉身和祂的死而复活。主耶稣在死而复活之后,升到天上,坐在父上帝的右边。基督在得胜升天后,就把恩赐赐下来,乃为建立祂的身体,而教会是祂的身体,是那充满万有者所充满的。故建立身体与充满万有绝对有关系,而祂赐恩赐就是为达到充满万有的目的。

Book: Ephesians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Ephesians 4:9 :“(Now this, ‘He ascended’—— what does it mean but that He also first descended into the lower parts of the earth?”
Ephesians 4:10 :“He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.)

Today’s Meditation: These two verses remind us of Christ came to this world and His death followed by resurrection. As Christ died and resurrected, He ascended and sit at the right of God Father. Christ gives spiritual grace after He ascended so that His body, churches, can be built. Church is the fullness of Him who fills all in all. Building His body and filling all in all are related. He gives spiritual grace is to achieve the goal of filling all in all.
