主的形状 [Likeness of the Lord]

书卷:罗马书(新约)
作者:保罗

罗马书6章5节:“我们若在祂死的形状上与祂联合,也要在祂复活的形状上与祂联合。”

今日默想:受浸不只表明与主同活,并且也表明与主同长。我们若在祂死的样式里与祂同长,也必在祂复活的样式里与祂同长。如此在生命中长大,就结出成圣的果子来。当基督在约但河中接受死亡的浸时,上帝就说,这是我的爱子。当基督在变化山上显出复活荣耀时,上帝也说,这是我的爱子。当基督在十字架上断气时,百夫长就承认说,这人真是上帝的儿子。当基督藉上帝大能从死复活后,使徒们就见证说,祂乃是上帝的儿子。可见基督死的形状加上复活的形状,正是上帝儿子完满的彰显。先有同死的经历,然后才有同活的经历。今天有些传道人绝口不讲十字架的道理,而光讲与主同活、活在灵里,这是非常危险的事,因为凭肉体而活还以为是活在属灵高超的境界中。信徒惟有真正联合于基督死的形状和复活的形状,才能将祂在我们身上完全彰显出来。

Book: Romans (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Romans 6:5 :“For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection,”

Today’s Meditation: Baptism is not just to claim to live with the Lord, but also grow with Him. If we have been grown with Him in the likeness of His death, we also shall be grow in the likeness of His resurrection. Such life can bear the fruit of the Spirit. When Christ was baptised in the Jordan River, God said, This is my beloved Son. When Christ revealed the glory of resurrection on the mountain, God also said, This is my beloved Son. When Christ had His last breath, the centurion also said, Truly this Man was the Son of God. When Christ resurrected through God’s power, fellow apostles witnessed that Jesus is the Son of God. We can see that the death of Christ and His resurrection are the perfect revelation of God’s Son. We need to die together in order to live together with Him. Today, some preachers do not preach of the cross, but just to preach about living with Him spiritually. This is dangerous because people may mistaken living carnally as living spiritually. Only when we truly united with His death and resurrection, we can reveal Him through us.
