前言PREFACE: 保羅向哥林多教會舉例說明基督徒應該共同合作如基督的身子,好像人類的身子各器官之合作。在哥林多前書十三章強調愛在基督徒的團體是必須的要件。Paul illustrated how the Corinthians should work together as the body of Christ, just as a human body cooperates within itself. In chapter 13, he tells them  that love is the necessary component to function as a community of believers.

           

 

上週Last Week我們發現經上如何說以聖潔的方式表達“愛在家中”。

We examined what it looks like to express holiness within our family life.

這週This Week我們將看到上帝的愛之道,作為我們應該組成良好關係的基本模式。

We will see the ways in which Godlike love is the principle                                                           

by which all our relationships should be shaped.

 

1. 上帝的愛: 經文:前書12:31b-13:3,                   1. Good’s Love: Scripture reading           1 Corinthians 12:31b-13:3,

12:31b你們要切切的求那更大的恩賜、我現今把最妙的道指示你們。

13:1我若能說萬人的方言、並天使的話語、卻沒有愛、我就成了鳴的鑼、響的鈸一般。

13:2我若有先知講道之能、也明白各樣的奧秘、各樣的知識.而且有全備的信、叫我能彀移山、卻沒有愛、我就算不得甚麼。

13:3我若將所有的賙濟窮人、   又捨己身叫人焚燒、卻沒有愛、仍然與我無益。。

 

解經: 哥林多前書12:31b-13:3,                     保羅指出和鼓勵信徒要善用上帝所賜的恩賜。您的恩賜不是您個人的成就,它們是為了服事上帝,促進教會的屬靈成長而賜下的 (聖經靈修版第468)

 

 

 

 

2. 基督徒的角色: 經文:林前13:4-7,

愛是恆久忍耐、又有恩慈.愛是不嫉妒.愛是不自誇.不張狂.不作害羞的事.不求自己的益處.不輕易發怒.不計算人的惡.不喜歡不義.只喜歡真理.凡事包容.凡事相信.凡事盼望.凡事忍耐

                                        

 

 

 

 

解經: 基督徒的角色: 林前13:4-7, 我們所處的社會,常把愛與慾混淆。與慾念不同,上帝的愛是向外的,是為別人的好處的,而非向內為自己的。愛是不自私的。這樣的愛不是自然而有的,只有上帝幫助我們剔除慾念和本性。我們才可以不計回報的愛別人。我們越像耶穌,就越能愛別人

 

 

 

3. 愛是恆久忍耐: 林前13: 8 - 13                                                 

愛是永不止息.先知講道之能、終必歸於無有.說方言之能、終必停止、知識也終必歸於無有。我們現在所知道的有限、先知所講的也有限.等那完全的來到、這有限的必歸於無有了。我作孩子的時候、話語像孩子、心思像孩子、意念像孩子.既成了人、就把孩子的事丟棄了。我們如今彷彿對著鏡子觀看、模糊不清.〔模糊不清原文作如同猜謎〕到那時、就要面對面了.我如今所知道的有限.到那時就全知道、如同主知道我一樣。如今常存的有信、有望、有愛、這三樣、其中最大的是愛

 

 

解經: 林前13: 8–13

上帝賜我們恩賜,為要我們建立,服事及鞏固別的信徒恩賜是為教會而設的。在永恆的國度堙A我們會變成完全,並將在上帝的 面前,到那時一切的恩賜都沒有用處了,因此它們都將歸於無有(v.10)

 

 

V. 13:12保羅略略提起將來,讓我們盼望有一日當我們與上帝面對面時,都會變得完全。這個真理可以增強我們的信心---今日我們雖然沒有一切問題的答案,但將來我們會有。有一日我們會親眼見到基督,並且能夠從上帝的角度來看一切

 

V.13:13, 由於哥林多城道德敗壞,因此愛已成為混亂。今日人們仍然不明白愛的真義。愛是人類最偉大的情操,是上帝屬性之一(參約4:8)愛促使我們無私地服侍別人,信心是上帝的信息的基礎和內容,盼望是我們生活的中心和態度,而愛則是行動。當信心和盼望都並存時,你變可以真正的愛別人,因為你已知道上帝如何愛你

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. 結論:

 

1) 上帝的愛: 賞賜每人有不同的恩賜, 我們好可用來助人以服侍神。

 

2) 基督徒的角色: W.E.McCumber ,“愛的另一方面是模仿耶穌神聖的愛必行出, 捨得並给於, 他人。

G. Campbell Morgan defined 解釋神聖就如 愛執行終身.”

 

3) 愛是恆久忍耐:  John Wesley 説,         基督徒的愛, “是慷慨、坦白、誠實的根源,沒有嫉妒和懷疑, 是善良和忍耐,從不被罪得勝,但擊敗壞習慣變好

12:31b But eagerly desire the greater gifts.   And now I will show you the most excellent way. 13:1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 13:2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 13:3 If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

 Commentary: 1 Corinthians 12:31b-13:3, Paul encouraged the believers that your spiritual gifts are not for your own self-advancement. They were given to you for serving God and love others enhancing the spiritual growth of the body of believers.

2. Christian Character: 1 Co. 13:4-7,      Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Commentary: 1 Co. 13:4-7, Our society confuses love and lust. Unlike lust, God’s kind of love is directed outward toward others, not inward toward ourselves. It is utterly unselfish. This kind of love goes against our natural inclinations. It is possible to practice this love only if God helps us set aside our own desires and instincts, so that we can give love while expecting nothing in return. Thus, the more we become like Christ, the more love we will show to others.

3 Love Endures: 1 Corinthians 13:8 – 13, Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.                                          

Commentary: 1 Corinthians 13:8 - 13    God gives us spiritual gifts for our lives on earth in order to build up, serve, and strengthen fellow Christians. The spiritual gifts are for the church. In eternity, we will be made perfect and complete and will be in the very presence of God. We will no longer need the spiritual gifts, so they will come to an end (v.10).               

v. 13:12, Paul offers a glimpse into the future to give us hope that one day we will be complete when we see God face to face. This truth should strengthen our faith - we don’t have all the answers now, but one day we will. Someday we will see Christ in person and be able to see with God’s perspective.

v. 13:13, In morally corrupt Corinth, love had become a mixed up term with little meaning. Today people are still confused about love. Love is the greatest of all human qualities, and it is an attribute of God himself (1 John 4:8). Love involves unselfish service to others, to show it gives evidence that you care. Faith is the foundation and content of God’s message; hope is the attitude and focus; love is the action. When faith and hope are in line, you are free to love completely because you understand how God loves. (p.2471)  

3. Conclusion:                                              1) God’s Love: God is love. He gave each of us different kinds of gifts to be used for helping others and serving God.

2) Christian Character: W. E. McCumber “Love is another way of saying imitation of Christand holiness, “love must act, give, spend and be spent for others. G. Campbell Morgan defined holiness as “love-mastered life.”

3) Love Endures:  John Wesley said of Christian love, “It is the parent of generosity, openness and frankness, void of jealousy and suspicion, it is kind and friendly and patience, never overcome of evil, but overcoming evil with good.
