Happy is the man who does not go in the company of sinners, or take his place in the way of evil-doers, or in the seat of those who do not give honour to the Lord.
Psalms 1:1

經文Scriptures使徒行傳Acts 9:1-19a

前言PREFACE: 假定您住在一個國家是基督徒被追捕、或被尋找、被關監獄、和被處決的地方。若您被邀請去探訪一位迫害宗教上的著名的領導人物,您感覺如何呢?這是實在發生在一位信者,他的名叫亞拿尼亞。今天,我們將看到掃羅生命之徹底的變性,和亞拿尼亞的生命也轉變的實在故事。

Imagine you lived in a country where Christians are hunted down, imprisoned, and executed. How would you feel if you were told to visit a well-known leader of the persecution? This is exactly what happened to a believer named Ananias. Today, we will look at the transformation that took place in the life of Saul, and in many ways, the life of Ananias too.

 

上週Last Week我們已看過領導他人認識基督的重要性。

We saw the importance of pointing and leading others to Christ.

這週This Week這週我們將看到基督如何透過聖靈的能力使人生命徹底的變性We will see how Christ can transform a life through the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

1. 與復活的耶穌相遇: 使徒行傳9:1-9         1. Encounter with the Risen Jesus: Read Acts 9:1-9           

1. 掃羅仍然向主的門徒、口吐威嚇兇殺的話、去見大祭司、2. 求文書給大馬色的各會堂、若是找著信奉這道的人、無論男女、都准他捆綁帶到耶路撒冷3. 掃羅行路、將到大馬色、忽然從天上發光、四面照著他.4. 他就仆倒在地、聽見有聲音對他說、掃羅掃羅、你為甚麼逼迫我。5. 他說、主阿、你是誰。主說、我就是你所逼迫的耶穌.6. 起來、進城去、你所當作的事、必有人告訴你。7. 同行的人、站在那裡、說不出話來、聽見聲音、卻看不見人。8. 掃羅從地上起來、睜開眼睛、竟不能看見甚麼.有人拉他的手、領他進了大馬色9. 三日不能看見、也不喫、也不喝。

 

 

 

 

 

解經: 使徒行傳9:1-9, 掃羅接受猶太最高祭師的贊同要在大馬色的會堂捉拿基督徒,一大光從天照耀掃羅,他倒地時,有復活耶穌向掃羅: 到城堨h, 不可再捉拿任何人。

        上帝並沒有處罰掃羅,如同耶穌的解釋、救贖就如瞎眼的得看見、叫那受壓制的得自由 (路加福音 4:18)就如掃羅的瞎眼意含徹底的變性之來臨經過掃羅的禁食和禱告。

 

 

2. 無意料之指引: 讀經文使徒行傳9:10-16

10 當下在大馬色、有一個門徒、名叫亞拿尼亞.主在異象中對他說、亞拿尼亞.他說、主、我在這裡。11 主對他說、起來、往直街去、在猶大的家裡、訪問一個大數人名叫掃羅.他正禱告.12 又看見了一個人、名叫亞拿尼亞、進來按手在他身上、叫他能看見。13 亞拿尼亞回答說、主阿、我聽見許多人說、這人怎樣在耶路撒冷多多苦害你的聖徒.14 並且他在這裡有從祭司長得來的權柄捆綁一切求告你名的人。15 主對亞拿尼亞說、你只管去.他是我所揀選的器皿、要在外邦人和君王並以色列人面前、宣揚我的名。16 我也要指示他、為我的名必須受許多的苦難。

     

 

解經: 使徒行傳9:10-16,

Vv. 10-12, 主對他說、在大馬色、有一個門徒名叫亞拿尼亞。他們已經告訴他, 直走並進入猶太的房子訪問一個大數人名叫掃羅.他正在禱告.進來按手在他身上、叫他能看見。

Vv.13, 14, (聖經靈修版, P.347) -亞拿尼亞回答說、 主阿、這是不可能的。他永不會成為基督徒的!畢竟,掃羅曾經追捕信徒,把他們置於死地。儘管亞拿尼亞百思不得其解,他仍然順服神,去為掃羅按手禱告。我們絕不可限制神,祂能夠成就任何事情。我們必須順服,既使要面對難以接受的人,也要跟隨神的引導。

Vv.15, 16, 信基督帶來極大的祝福,但也常受苦。保羅為其信仰吃苦 (請看林後11:23-27). 上帝呼召我們獻身,雖不很舒服,但祂應許與我們同在,無論吃苦或困境是不可避免的

 

3. 徹底的變性: 讀經文: 使徒行傳9:17-19,

 

17 亞拿尼亞就去了、進入那家、把手按在掃羅身上說、兄弟掃羅、在你來的路上、向你顯現的主、就是耶穌、打發我來、叫你能看見、又被聖靈充滿。18 掃羅的眼睛上、好像有鱗立刻掉下來、他就能看見、於是起來受了洗.19 喫過飯就健壯了。掃羅大馬色的門徒同住了些日子

 

解經: 使徒行傳9:17-19,  

亞拿尼亞的宣告,禱告使掃羅之眼精能恢復,也看到掃羅充滿了聖靈的澆灌,專住於掃羅的救贖和授權宣告能傳福音。

 

掃羅徹底的變性!他的瞎眼沒有了,像是鱗片從他的眼睛掉下

他不再是捉拿基督徒,他受洗,

並與基督徒同吃飯。與他們敬拜

和團契,堅固掃羅並使他徹底變性。上帝安排人們給他,人們

同樣也必需打開心門。

      

願神使我們能看到何處是神要      我們伸手出去使我們周圍的人得

恩惠,進而變性!

 

 

4.結論: 聯貫您的生命和世界

1. 與復活的耶穌相遇: 使徒行傳9:1-9,

     本來掃羅的使命是以憤怒的動力,對抗基督徒。開始逼迫他們,司提反被殺後 (8:1-3) 變成親切的呼召救贖,並不是報仇或是處罰。

     掃羅這位逼迫者如何呢?在路上與主相遇後,他改變了嗎?(他成為瞎眼,需要他的同伴領他入城。 有三天不能吃或喝任何東西。)

 

 

2. 無意料之指引: 使徒行傳9:10-16,

     亞拿尼亞掃羅倆人都同樣的回應主。當掃羅問他是誰時,亞拿尼亞認出是耶穌,祂給二者選擇服從與否,亞拿尼亞掃羅倆人都服從。

 

3. 徹底的變性: 使徒行傳 9:17-19,   

掃羅知道有一個名字叫亞拿尼亞的人,將要來幫助掃羅可再看見。亞拿尼亞服從耶穌的命令,不顧掃羅曾在大馬色殺害許多的基督徒。您想亞拿尼亞要去幫掃羅用了多大的勇氣呢?

    (1. 亞拿尼亞觸摸,2. 稱呼他

弟兄,” 3使掃羅之眼睛復原,

4. 禱告使掃羅受聖靈充滿,

5. 掃羅洗禮,和

6. 掃羅一起吃飯。)

 

Point: 

* 亞拿尼亞 服從耶穌的命令是付出很大

   的冒險去見掃羅的。

* 保羅不只給他們有期望;

   也給了我們有期望。

* 基督徒的生命是一種變性旅程。

1. Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord's disciples. He went to the high priest 2. and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem. 3. As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. 4.            He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?"

5. "Who are you, Lord?" Saul asked. "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting," he replied. 6. "Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do." 7.     The men traveling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound but did not see anyone. 8.  Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes, he could see nothing. So, they led him by the hand into Damascus. 9. For three days he was blind and did not eat or drink anything.

 

 

 Commentary: Acts 9:1-9, Saul received the Jewish high priest’s approval to arrest believers in synagogues of Damascus, Nearing Damascus, a flashing light from heaven interrupted Saul’s trip. So, Saul fell to the ground as he was on the ground, the voice addressing him came from the risen Jesus! Saul had new orders from Jesus: go into the city, not to arrest others.

         God was not punishing Saul. As Jesus describes salvation as the recovery of sight to the blind (see Luke 4:18), Saul’s blindness infers the transformation to come. his soul-searching through fasting and prayer.

  

2. Unexpected Instruction: Read Acts 9:10-16, 10 In Damascus there was a disciple named Ananias. The Lord called to him in a vision, "Ananias!" "Yes, Lord," he answered. 11 The Lord told him, "Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying. 12 In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on him to restore his sight."13 "Lord," Ananias answered, "I have heard many reports about this man and all the harm he has done to your saints in Jerusalem.14 And he has come here with authority from the chief priests to arrest all who call on your name."15 But the Lord said to Ananias, "Go! This man is my chosen instrument to carry my name before the Gentiles and their kings and before the people of Israel. 16 I will show him how much he must suffer for my name."

 

Commentary: Acts 9:10-16,

Vv. 10-12, In Damascus there was a disciple named Ananias. They told him, "Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying. place hands on him to restore Saul’s sight. Vv.13, 14, from NIV, P.2328 - “Not him, Lord; that’s impossible. He could never become a Christian!” In essence, that’s what Ananias said when God told him of Saul’s conversion. After all, Saul had pursued believers to their death. Despite these understandable feelings, Ananias obeyed God and ministered to Saul. We must not limit God-he can do anything. We must obey and follow God’s leading, even when he leads us to difficult people and places.

Vv.15, 16, Faith in Christ brings great blessings but often great suffering too. Paul would suffer for his faith (see 2 Corinthians 11:23-27). God calls us to commitment, not to comfort. He promises to be with us through suffering and hardship, not to spare us from them.

 

3. A Radical Transformation:

    Read Acts 9:17-19,

 17 Then Ananias went to the house and entered it. Placing his hands on Saul, he said, "Brother Saul, the Lord--Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here--has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit."18 Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul's eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptized,

19 and after taking some food, he regained his strength. Saul spent several days with the disciples in Damascus.      

          

Commentary: Acts 9:17-19,

Ananias’ declaration about coming to restore Saul’s sight and to see him filled with the Holy Spirit focuses on both Saul’s salvation and commission to proclaim the gospel.

 

It was a radical transformation!

The change in Saul was dramatic!

His blindness disappeared like scales falling from his eyes.  Rather than arresting believers, he joined them ... submitting to baptism and eating with them. The transformed Saul was strengthened by those who gathered with him in worship and fellowship.   God placed others in his life, and they too needed to be open to change.

      

May God give us eyes to see where God wishes to extend such transforming grace among and around us!     

 

4.Conclusion: Connect to Your Life and the World

1 Encounter with the Risen Jesus: 9:1-9,

Saul was on a mission, fueled by rage against Jesus’ believers first seen in persecution against them after Stephen’s murder (8:1-3). It was a gracious call to salvation, not revenge or punishment.

            How was Saul, the powerful persecutor,

        changed after this encounter on the road?

        (He was blind. He needed his companions

        to lead him into the city. For three days he

        did not eat or drink anything.)

 

2 Unexpected Instruction: Acts 9:10-16, Both men responded by calling Jesus, “Lord.” Ananias recognized Jesus, while Saul asked who He was. Jesus gave both men the choice to obey or not. Both obeyed.

 

3. A Radical Transformation: Acts 9:17-19,

    Saul knew that someone named

    Ananias was coming to help him see

    again.  Ananias obeyed Jesus’

    command, despite knowing why Saul

    was in Damascus and what he had

    done to other believers. How much

    courage do you think it took for

    Ananias to go to Saul? 

(1.     He touched him, 2. called him

“brother,” 3. restored Saul’s sight, 4. offered the infilling of the Holy Spirit, 5. baptized Saul, and 6. ate with Saul.)

 

Point: 

* Ananias took enormous risks when he

   obeyed Jesus’ command to go to Saul.  

* Paul’s experience not only gives hope for

   others; it gives hope to us as well.

* The Christian life is a journey in  

   transformation.
