合神心意的關係

Please scroll down to view the English version.

最近我們在生命學園裡學習到什麼是合神心意的關係,你是否常常在日常生活中,覺得很難活出神的見證?你與人的關係的連結,不管是領受或是帶出去的是祝福多還是綑綁多?是不是對人有不合神心意的期待和依賴?神賜給我們管理自己生命的責任,我們的時間、身體貞操、金錢、責任、還有你的情感、我們的人際關係,都是我們自己要去管理的。什麼是你生命的優先次序?你是怎麼投資你生命的資源?健康的人際關係是有不同層度的親密關係。不同層次的親密關係,就會給予對方從你身上得到不同的資源,當親密感越來越親密時,人數也該越少,因為一個人能夠給予的是有限的。什麼是我們生命中最重要、最有價值的事?神是不是位在我們人際關係中最內圈的?

神賜給我們不是膽怯的心,乃是剛強、仁愛、謹守的心。(提摩太後書1:7)
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.(2 Timothy 1:7)

神是告訴要如何與人建立合神心的聯結呢?神賜下關係,是為了我們可以帶下祂的祝福,愛和榮耀,聖經教導我們:

腓2:2-5「在基督裡若有什麼勸勉,愛心有什麼安慰,聖靈有什麼交通,心中有什麼慈悲憐憫,你們就要意念相同,愛心相同,有一樣的心思,有一樣的意念,使我的喜樂可以滿足。 凡事不可結黨,不可貪圖虛浮的榮耀;只要存心謙卑,各人看別人比自己強。各人不要單顧自己的事,也要顧別人的事。你們當以基督耶穌的心為心」
弗4:2-5「凡事謙虛、溫柔、忍耐,用愛心互相寬容,用和平彼此聯絡,竭力保守聖靈所賜合而為一的心。身體只有一個,聖靈只有一個,正如你們蒙召同有一個指望。一主,一信,一洗」
(林前12:23-27)
「身上肢體,我們看為不體面的,越發給他加上體面;不俊美的,越發得著俊美。 我們俊美的肢體,自然用不著裝飾;但神配搭這身子,把加倍的體面給那有缺欠的肢體,免得身上分門別類,總要肢體彼此相顧。若一個肢體受苦,所有的肢體就一同受苦;若一個肢體得榮耀,所有的肢體就一同快樂。你們就是基督的身子,並且各自作肢體。」

與大家分享以下的信息:


國度尊榮 Kingdom Culture of Honor


地上的文化,是根基於分別善惡的文化,是世界的價值觀,根基善惡、好壞、成功或者失敗,我們在乎學歷高低、收入、才華。天國文化,是根基於生命樹;天國在乎的是生命, 天國注重的就是愛!愛,就是在乎關係,是彼此在愛的相交中,而不在乎你做事的果效好不好,你是不是常常把事情搞砸了。

耶穌來到地上,就是要把尊榮的文化、天國自由的文化帶到這個地上來人的受造是尊貴的,神給人自由,人是沒有辦法被人壓制、控制的。愛,是天國的文化,耶穌來到地上就是要打破世界的價值觀,世人所以為尊貴的,在神看為卑賤。

耶穌呼召馬太來成為他的門徒,他是一個稅吏,過去是貪婪的,對錢很在乎的,為著錢可以逆著自己的本性來欺壓自己的同胞,可是他改變了,成為耶穌的門徒,會去愛人。還有那些稅吏、妓女,是世人所不齒的,覺得他們道德律很低的、很差勁、很敗壞的,耶穌卻去尊榮他們,去他們家,跟他們吃飯,跟他們在一起,跟他們有個親密的關係。於是,這些人就有改變。一個人被神尊榮到了,會釋放極大的能力。神尊榮這個人,會使他脫去羞恥感、失敗感、懼怕,他會開始變得尊貴、榮耀。耶穌是根據人被造的命定來對待他的。

當人犯了罪、犯了錯誤的時候,你不要用分辨善惡樹的方式來對待他,你要用天國的尊榮來尊榮他,你會使這個人除去他的羞恥感。當你去尊榮這個人的時候,你就是在釋放神造他的呼召和命定在這個人的身上。當一個人犯罪犯錯的時候,他常常忘記自己是誰,只覺得自己是個很糟、很敗壞的罪人,他會被羞恥感所壓制、所淹沒。這時候,你不要去教訓他,因為他已經知道錯了,而是用神的尊榮去尊榮他,會使他整個裡面開始有能力起來,他的裡面就會在愛中剛強起來,就開始有愛的力量,他可以去解決,去處理善後。

彼得否認耶穌,這是很大的罪。因為耶穌說:“你在人前不認我,我在天父面前也不認你。”但是,神知道彼得不是故意的,知道彼得是一時害怕而妥協。這不是預備好要去犯罪。前者叫軟弱,後者叫剛愎任性,要執意去犯罪。神看彼得會成為一個領袖、大有能力、祝福許許多多的人,他是對神非常絕對、忠心願意為主去死的一個仆人。神不是看他現在犯的這罪,所以,神預先就對他講:“我已經先為你禱告了,你起來以後要堅固其他的弟兄。”神是照著彼得的命定,會成為什麼樣的人來看他。

天國的價值觀是,對於一個人不小心犯了罪,神不是好驚訝,要開會解決他的罪,耶說:“我已經解決了,兩千多年前就解決了,而且,我跟他立的約就是聖靈住在他的裡面,他會悔改的,他悔改以後,會更有能力來愛神,會更有能力活出一個謙卑天國的樣式。”

我觀看你指頭所造的天、並你所陳設的月亮星宿、便說、人算什麼、你竟顧念他.世人算什麼、你竟眷顧他。你叫他比天使〔或作 神〕微小一點、並賜他榮耀尊貴為冠冕。(詩篇8:3-5)

大衛說,看到整個宇宙、銀河系、天空星宿是這麼偉大,人那麼渺小,人算什麼呢?神哪,你為什麼這麼眷顧人呢?還把尊貴榮耀戴在他頭上成為冠冕,使他美麗,叫他比神小一點。神給的是我們何等的尊榮,我們與祂一同復活,一同坐在天上,連天使長都嫉妒,天使長羨慕到嫉妒的地步。

為什麼神對人類那麼好?神說:“因為他們是照著我的形象造的,我讓他們在地上就是代表我,我要藉著他們把天帶到地上來,把天國的尊貴、榮耀、自由、喜樂、豐富、美麗藉著他們帶到地上來。”人就是這麼尊貴!提摩太書第一章說,人只是比神微小一點,神要把祂一切的尊榮加在人身上,神吹了一口氣,神的靈在我們裡面重生了我們,我們的靈就活過來了,在我們裡面的靈是有大能的,讓我們是可以去愛的,當然我們在地上的一些傷害扭曲,常常把我們裡面愛的大能給壓制了。

天國的尊榮文化是非常看重自由,因為整個天國就是自由的。彼此尊重,因對方是有神的形象和樣式,他是一個自由的人,我不去控制他。天國是充滿自由,充滿彼此尊重。我們之所以沒有辦法尊重、尊榮別人,很多時候是我們在懼怕裡面,想要去控制。神說:“每個人受造奇妙可畏。”也就是神說,祂造我們每個人有個特別的心意、特別的命定。

謹守就是自制,就是說,我是一個可以管理自己的人,不會因為你對我的不禮貌、不尊重,我就不尊重你,也把你罵回去。即使你和我的意見不一樣,你不尊重我,我還是一樣尊榮你,這個就是謹守的心,就是我有自制力,我是那麼尊貴、榮耀,我要活出跟我身份相稱的生活形態,以及人際關係。當我們每一個人都這樣,神的同在就會越來越豐富。

在一桌宴席中,每個人都有一雙好長、好長的筷子,每個人都要夾菜,都要夾菜往自己嘴巴裡塞,就永遠都吃不到。因為那筷子太長了,人們也不知道怎麼樣能夾到自己的嘴巴來,這群人就是地獄裡的人,因為他就是只想到自己:“我要吃,我....”所以,他什麼都吃不到,他就在地獄裡。天堂裡的人就不會想到我,他就想到一直給別人吃,結果每個人都吃飽,都吃得很快樂。

Recently, we talked about the topic of the godly relationship in the Life Garden School. Do you find it difficult to live out the good witness in your daily life? Do you receive or give out blessings more or curses more in your relationship? Is there any ungodly expectation and reliance? God has given us the responsibility to manage our own lives, time, physical virginity, money, responsibility, and emotions. What are the priorities in your life? How do you invest your life resources? There should be different levels of intimacy in our relationship. Different levels of intimacy, it would be giving your different resources. The more intimate, the fewer the number of people, because a person can give is limited. What is the most important and valuable thing in our lives? Is God the most closest one in your relationships.

For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.(2 Timothy 1:7)

What is the godly relationship bonds God taught us? God gives the relationship is to bring down His blessings, love, and glory. The Bible teaches us:

Philippians 2:2-5 "then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus"

Ephesians 4:2-5

"Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism;"

1 Corinthians 12:23-27
"and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it."

Kingdom Culture of Honor


Ex 20:1212 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you. (NKJV)

The day we gave our lives to Christ in submission to His will we received an invitation into a Kingdom and an upgrade in our identity and status here on earth. We were brought into a royal bloodline, we inherited a royal family. Our dad is a king, which then means we are King’s kids literally! Because we are now part of a royal family there are some things we must recognize? First, we now have been given a huge responsibility to represent where we are from. We have been given a royal responsibly to represent this kingdom to this earth on behalf of our father. Second, because we are from another kingdom we have all the resources of that kingdom available to us, and for us. Come On!!!! Paul explains this fact clearly when he says in Ephesians 2:19 “19 So now you Gentiles are no longer strangers and foreigners. You are citizens along with all of God’s holy people. You are members of God’s family. “We have been given great responsibility to represent our father in speech, character, and action.

Part of the responsibility of royal people is the concept of honor. We as ambassador of Christ have a responsibility to establish the government of heaven here on earth. The government in heaven and its relationship are built on a foundation of honor. We find in exodus 20:12 that if we honor our parents we will live a long life in the land God as established for us. This scripture has messed me up. In this scripture we see a connection between honor and life. Where there is honor it creates life and establishes what God gives us!!!! Honor creates a passage way for life to travel and is the key ingredient to creating and establishing a kingdom culture. Where honor resides it creates life, freedom and as a direct result we now see everything God gives us, and every relationship we have begins to flourish, and grow. Honor is the currency of heaven.

There are two cultures right now that are being established in the body of Christ. One is a culture of fear and the other is a culture of honor. You see where there is no honor people begin to fear and where fear is established people then begin to control. Honor naturally set up government. In God’s kingdom there are levels of responsibility and authority. All kingdom relationship work together through honor. The only way honor works is if there are levels of honor. Becuase of the levels of honor we are now able to honor those above us. Honor creates government. With that said, where there is no honor system, we have no kingdom government established and now people begin to fear and chaos takes place. Everyone fight’s for a place and position.

Where honor is present there is also love and freedom. 1 John 4:18-19 “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.19 We love Him because He first loved us.” In a culture of honor there is love, and that love cast out fear. But in a culture of fear love is cast out. Where honor is present our relationship with one another grows, I’m able to love you and not fear you. I able to love you regardless of what you have down to me, regardless of us not agreeing on everything. Where honor is present I don’t fear what you are becoming and the anointing on your life, I rather encourage it, it is not a threat to me and I don’t fear it. In a culture of honor we are able to empower one another and the head of that culture desires you to be accomplish greater things then they have ever done. In this culture of honor you are free to be who you are in Christ and I do not fear that, I love the Christ in you. In a culture of fear there is no love or freedom. Because of the lack of love and freedom in our relationship, I begin to fear you and as a result I then control you and what you become. You cannot surpass me because I won’t let you. In this culture there is no empowerment. In a honor culture we are to walk out the model Jesus left for us. He first honored us so we now honor Him. In a fear base culture honor starts from the bottom going up but in never comes down to the people who first honored. In a culture of honor, the head first releases honor to those beneath him changing their status and drawing greatness out of them and in return they release it back pushing the head further into their God given destiny.

The concept of honor is only possible through relationships. Each relationship with our brothers and sister in the kingdom is meant to be eternal and held together with honor. But we have allowed a worldly view of honor creep into our kingdom perspective. The world’s view is temporal and conditional. We give honor to those who deserve it, who have earned it, or those we want something from. There is a big problem with this, it’s not kingdom honor. In 1 Peter 2:17 it says “Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king”. We are to honor all people not just the ones we believe should have it or who have earned it. How can you say that? I didn’t, God did. You maybe asking yourself, how can I give honor to a dad who has abandoned me, to people who hurt me, to those I don’t like, the persons who let me down, or the person who has different views than me? Because when we release honor to all people, what we are declaring is that I am not letting my disagreements with you or your character defects control me. I have standards that will not be removed regardless of our disagreements and what you may have done to me, it will not control who I am. We think by not honoring it protects us but it actually does the opposite. It allows the person we feel that we can’t honor to control who we are, because we were meant to honor all people. We don’t honor people because they are honorable but because we are honorable!!!! Honor does not mean we agree with what they said or did to us. It just means we have a standard in our heart and we value them as a person created in the image and likeness of God. We honor the Christ in them. By honoring all people you are drawing the goodness God hid inside of them. Let’s honor one another and follow the pattern Christ left us here on earth.
