與基督的身體聯合_Members of His Body

與基督的身體聯合
經文: 「我以經得了贖價。」(伯卅三24)

 

 

 信心醫病是信心生活中的一部份。這就是基督在我們身體上掌權。這就是基督的生命在我們身體上活出來。這就是我們身體與基督的身體聯合了,基督的生命流到我們身體上來。所以,我們今天所有的,乃是祂升天以後得榮耀的身體。祂從死裡復活,今天帶著一個復活的身體,坐在上帝的右邊。我們今天所有的,就是那樣的身體。 
        這活著的基督是屬於我們的,祂一切的品性和能力也是屬於我們的。我們是祂身上的肢體--祂的肉、祂的骨--只要我們能相信、能接受,我們立刻可以活出上帝兒子的生命來。主阿,求祢使我知道甚麼叫做「身體……是為主,主也是為身子。」(林前六13)--信宣(A. B. Simpson) 
        「在你中間的耶和華你的上帝是大有能力的」(番三17)。二十餘年前把信心醫病的眞理照入我心中,叫我破壞的身體得到醫治的,就是這節聖經。直到今天,這節聖經仍是一扇門戶,大大地開放著,好叫基督時時得進入這買回的身體來,用祂自己的同在和能力充滿、澆灌、活動,把我的全人造成一個「新天新地」(啟廿一1)。「耶和華你的上帝!」啊!你的上帝!我的上帝!上帝既是我的,那麼在上帝裡面的一切也定規是我的了,定歸在我裡面了;我能夠信多少,我願意用多少,這是我自己的事。這位上帝,「大有能力的」上帝,全能的上帝,是我們裡面的上帝!這是何等的權利!祂--父、子、靈--在我裡面--在我身體裡面,在我頭腦裡面,在我神經裡面。 
        二十一年以來這不但是我實在的經歷,並且是一個日深一日,日豐一日的經歷。現在我七十歲了,卻比三十歲的時候還健壯、還新鮮。靠著上帝的力量,我現在體力、上智力,上都負擔著常人兩倍的工作,卻還用不到一半氣力。我的體力、智力、靈力,都像噴水井一般--一直是滿溢的、氾濫的。無論講道、教書、日夜旅行,在各種氣候下都像管子通水那般容易。--選

 

Members of His Body
Scripture: "I have found an atonement" (Job 33:24, margin).
Divine healing is just divine life. It is the headship of Christ over the body. It is the life of Christ in the frame. It is the union of our members with the very body of Christ and the inflowing life of Christ in our living members. It is as real as His risen and glorified body. It is as reasonable as the fact that He was raised from the dead and is a living Man with a true body and a rational soul today at God's right hand. 

        That living Christ belongs to us in all His attributes and powers. We are members of His body, His flesh and His bones, and if we can only believe and receive it, we may live upon the very life of the Son of God. Lord, help me to know "the Lord for the body and the body for the Lord.' --A. B. Simpson 

        "The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty." (Zeph. 3:17). This was the text that first flashed the truth of Divine healing into my mind and worn-out body nearly a quarter century ago. It is still the door, wide open more than ever, through which the living Christ passes moment by moment into my redeemed body, filling, energizing, vitalizing it with the presence and power of His own personality, turning my whole being into a "new heaven and new earth." "The Lord, thy God." Thy God. My God. Then all that is in God Almighty is mine and in me just as far as I am able and willing to appropriate Him and all that belongs to Him. This God, "Mighty," ALL Mighty God, is our INSIDE God. He is, as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, in the midst of me, just as really as the sun is in the center of the heavens, or like the great dynamo in the center of the power-house of my three-fold being. He is in the midst, at the center of my physical being. He is in the midst of my brain. He is in the midst of my nerve centers. 

        For twenty-one years it has been not only a living reality to me, but a reality growing deeper and richer, until now at the age of seventy years, I am in every sense a younger, fresher man than I was at thirty. At this present time I am in the strength of God, doing full twice as much work, mental and physical, as I have ever done in the best days of the past, and this observe, with less than half the effort then necessary. My life, physical, mental and spiritual, is like an artesian well--always full, overflowing. To speak, teach, travel by night and day in all weather and through all the sudden and violent changes of our variable climate, is no more effort to me than it is for the mill-wheel to turn when the stream is full or for the pipe to let the water run through.
