723 成聖

你們得在基督耶穌裡,是本乎神,神又使他成為我們的……聖潔。(林前一30

生的一面。成聖的奧秘就是耶穌基督把自己完全賜給我,這不是漸進的,而是當我憑信體認耶穌基督成為我的聖潔那一刻,就即時得著。耶穌的聖潔成為我的聖潔,而且從我身上彰顯出來;這正是成聖的意思。

聖潔生活的秘訣,不在仿效耶穌,而是讓他的完美在我身上彰顯。成聖是:“基督在我裡面。”我因信領受他那奇妙的生命——神無上恩惠的禮物。我願意讓神使成聖在我裡面成為真實,就像他自己的話語一樣真實嗎?成聖就是耶穌基督聖潔的品質傳了給我。每一個分別為聖的人,彰顯的都是他的忍耐、他的愛心、他的信實、他的無暇、他的敬虔。成聖不是向耶穌支取聖潔的能力,而是支取他本身的聖潔;是他使聖潔在我身上彰顯出來。成聖是賜予,不是模仿。模仿是另一回事。在耶穌基督裡,一切皆完全;而成聖的奧秘,就在於我可以取用他一切的完美。於是慢慢地,但肯定地,我便開始過有條不紊、健康、聖潔的生活,是“蒙神能力保守的”。

祈禱◆主啊,真的,我不需要更多的證據,證明你話語中有關人內心的真理;即使那是你的心意,我還是不想在這方面再知道更多。我想更多認識的,是關乎你偉大和滿有恩典的救贖。


July 23 Sanctification

Of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us . . . sanctification.” 1 Corinthians 1:30

The Life Side. The mystery of sanctification is that the perfections of Jesus Christ are imparted to me, not gradually, but instantly when by faith I enter into the realization that Jesus Christ is made unto me sanctification. Sanctification does not mean anything less than the holiness of Jesus being made mine manifestly.

The one marvellous secret of a holy life lies not in imitating Jesus, but in letting the perfections of Jesus manifest themselves in my mortal flesh. Sanctification is “Christ in you.” It is His wonderful life that is imparted to me in sanctification, and imparted by faith as a sovereign gift of God's grace. Am I willing for God to make sanctification as real in me as it is in His word?

Sanctification means the impartation of the Holy qualities of Jesus Christ. It is His patience, His love, His holiness, His faith, His purity, His godliness, that is manifested in and through every sanctified soul. Sanctification is not drawing from Jesus the power to be holy; it is drawing from Jesus the holiness that was manifested in Him, and He manifests it in me. Sanctification is an impartation, not an imitation. Imitation is on a different line. In Jesus Christ is the perfection of everything, and the mystery of sanctification is that all the perfections of Jesus are at my disposal, and slowly and surely I begin to live a life of ineffable order and sanity and holiness: “Kept by the power of God.”
