ANNOUNCEMENTS 公告

住在主裡的印證—遵守主的道
Evidence of Abiding in God—Obeying His Word

講師/Speaker: Lawrance Wu

1 John 2: 3~6 約翰壹書二36

(Listen to the sermon, 聽講道) (Prayed for Mike and Sandy Haggard. 為 Mike Haggard 牧師與 Sandy 禱告)

3 我們若遵守他的誡命,就曉得是認識他。 4 人若說「我認識他」,卻不遵守他的誡命,便是說謊話的,真理也不在他心裏了。 5 凡遵守主道的,愛神的心在他裏面實在是完全的,從此我們知道我們是在主裏面。 6 人若說他住在主裏面,就該自己照主所行的去行。

3And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. 4Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, 5but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him: 6whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.

v 對約翰壹書二3-17的預覽
Preview of 1 John 2:3-17

  • 遵守主耶穌的命令 (2:3-6)
    Obeying His commands
  • 弟兄姊妹之間彼此相愛 (2:7-11)
    Loving each other
  • 生命不斷的成長(2:12-14)
    Keep Growing in Christ
  • 不要貪愛這個世界 (2:15-17)
    Do not love this world

 

v 4節裡的「認識祂」是什麼意思?
What does it mean to “know God” (v.4)?
ó認識、知道的希臘文γινώσκο (ginosko)

   有兩種意思:
A. 只客觀地知曉,但沒有親密的關係。
B. 親密的關係。

v 但是,認識耶穌是如何帶出遵守他的誡命呢?
Why does a relationship with God transform practical behavior?
ó大老闆與三個經理的故事

v 在第五節的「愛」指的是什麼呢?
What is the meaning of “Love” (v.5)

動詞
Verb
名詞
Noun
解釋
Explanation
αγαπαω (agapao) ἀγάπη (agape) 聖經命令我們愛神、愛人都是用這個字。這是出於理性。我們用理性認知對方的價值(不是對方對我的價值,而是對方本身的價值)而如此對待他,尋求他的好處。這個字表現在行動上。
Unconditional love
ψίλεω (phileo) ψιλία (philia) 從來沒有在命令式出現,是感性上的表現,較正確的翻譯是「喜歡」。
friendship love, like
στἐργω (stergo) στοργή (storge) 有同樣的背景所產生出來的「親和力」
brotherly love
ἐρἀω (erao) ἔρως (eros) 熱情
passionate love

 

v 因此,在這裡我們可以知道:

*真正認識耶穌基督必定會遵守祂的誡命。(vv.4-5a)
Knowing Jesus means we will obey His commands.

*假如你遵守祂的誡命,那麼你可以確信你是真的認識基督(v3, v.5b)
You would have assurance of abiding in Christ if you obey His commands.

*任何人若說他住在基督裡面,就該自己照基督所行的去行。(v.6)
Anyone who says he abides in Christ ought to walk in the same way in which He walked.

我們不是靠遵守上帝的誡命來稱義,而是單單藉著信心;但是在生活中遵守上帝的誡命,確實會給我重生得印證。認識耶穌並與祂建立個人的親密關係會改變我們的態度。

Obedience to God does not bring about justification (which comes by faith alone), but obedience as a pattern of life does give evidence that one has been born again. To know him involves a personal relationship that transforms practical behavior.
