PART 2- WHERE DO YOU BELONG? 你屬於哪裡?

(Listen to the sermon, 聽講道)

 1. Paul compares the church to a body to make two points:  保羅以身體比做為教會來做兩點的解說

4Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function,5 so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. Romans 12:4-5

4就像一個身體有許多肢體,各肢體都有不同的功用;5照樣,我們大家在基督裡成為一個身體,也是互相作肢體。羅 馬 書 12:4-5

  • There are many kinds of Christians in the church and each of them is unique in who they are and what they do 在教會裡有很多不同的基督徒, 而每一個在他們本身是誰和他們做的事都是獨特的
  • In God’s plan, all Christians come together to form the church, connected closely to the head, Jesus, and to each other. 在上帝的計劃裡, 所有的基督徒聚在一起而形成一個教會, 緊密連接到頭, 耶穌和彼此

 

Implication:  When we are not connected to a local church, everyone is cheated. 意涵: 當我們沒有和當地的一個教會有連結, 每一個人都被欺騙

 

2. Paul describes the church as a family of believers 保羅形容教會像是一個信徒的家庭

9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:9-10

9我們行善,不要覺得厭煩;如果不鬆懈,到了適當的時候,就有收成。10所以,我們一有機會,就應該對眾人行善,對信徒更要這樣。加 拉 太 書 6:9-10

 

  • Connecting with the family of believers does not mean we break relationships with family and friends.  It should make them stronger. 和我們信徒的家庭做連結不是代表我們切斷了和我們的家人及朋友的關係. 它應該讓他們更強壯
  • The family of believers needs to be a priority in the life of a Christian.信徒的家庭在基督徒的生活裡需要為優先

 

Implication:  We need to identify the family of believers (local church) we will connect with.  意涵: 我們需要辨別我們將連結的信徒的家庭(當地的教會)

 

3. Paul describes the church as God’s household  保羅形容教會像是上帝的家人

Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household.   Ephesians 2:19

這樣看來,你們不再是外人和客旅,而是與聖徒一同作國民,是 神家裡的人了,以 弗 所 書 2:19

 

Implication:  If you are in God’s household, you should have a responsibility and take it seriously. 意涵: 假如你是在上帝的家裡, 你應該有責任且以嚴謹的態度來看待

 

4. Things To Consider When Connecting With A Local Church 事情需要考慮的當你正和一間當地的教會做連結

  • No church is perfect 沒有任何教會是完美的
  • Make sure the church can feed you and make sure the church needs you 確保教會可以提供你所需要的,且確保教會需要你
  • If New Life is not that church, we encourage you to continue seeking the local church where you belong. 假如新生命不是你所尋找的教會, 我們鼓勵你繼續尋找一個當地的教會是你所歸屬的
