圣灵的果子

如何活出圣灵的果子,和发展丰盛的个人灵修生活。
How to Bear the Fruit of the Spirit and Develop a Satisfying Devotional Life.

第一堂:圣灵与果子Session One: Holy Spirit and Fruit
1. 主题经文:加5:22-23。The major scripture verse: Galatians 5:22-23
a. 这段经文并没有说“你应当结这些果子”而是说“圣灵会使它们结在你的身上。”
The verse does not say “you should produce these fruits,” but “the Spirit produces them in you.”
b. 此经文不是说只有基督徒拥有此果子, 而是 说,“藉着圣灵,此果子越来越多地会出现在你的身上。”           The verse does not say that only Christians have these, but rather “through the Holy Spirit, this fruit will appear in your life more and more.”
c. 圣灵的工作不限制於这九个特质而已,因为整个基督徒的生命都是圣灵所赐予的。The Spirit’s work is not limited to these nine qualities – the entire Christian life is brought about by the Holy Spirit。

2.  加拉太人成为基督徒之前已经会重视这些果子的特质。
The Galatians already valued these qualities before they became Christians.
分组讨论:Small Group:  你还没成为基督徒之前,你觉得经文里的果子中,哪一些值得追求?
Which qualities did you value before you became a Christian?
信耶稣之后,此果子在你的生命上有没有进步?
Did becoming a Christian help you to reach these qualities?
请想一想你希望在今天的营会要达到的目标。Please think of a goal for today’s workshop.
3. 圣灵在三位一体上帝中的角色The Holy Spirit’s role in the Trinity
a. 三位一起按着相同的旨意做事。约14:16-17。
The three work together, with the same will. John 14:16-17
b. 例如,耶稣所做的都是天父的旨意。约5:19。
For example, Jesus does the Father’s will. John 5:19
c. 圣灵的角色是把耶稣的工作带到我们的生命里。约16:13-14
The Spirit’s work is to bring the work of Jesus to us. John 16:13-14
d. 神无论对我们做什么,或者是称义活着是成圣,都是为了耶稣,藉着圣灵给我们的。多3:4-7
All that God does, no matter whether it is justification or sanctification, he gives it to us because of Jesus, by the Spirit.   Titus 3:4-7.

4. 结果三是三位一起帮我们结果子。Therefore the fruit is given to us by all three members  together.
a. 耶稣在我们里面结果子。约15:5。Jesus produces fruit in us: John 15:5
b. 天父在我们里面结果子。来12:19-11。The Father produces fruit in us: Hebrews 12:9-11

5.  如果是神,为了耶稣,藉着圣灵在我们里面结果子的,包罗为什么在圣经强调果子为圣灵的工作?请参加5:19-23。 Since it is God who produces fruit in us, because of Jesus, through the work of the Spirit, why does Paul in the Bible emphasize the fruit as the Spirit’s work?  See Galatians 5:19-23

a. 保罗提到圣灵的原因是因为他要做比较:他要比较“旧的我”和“新的我。”
The reason is that Paul is comparing the new life and the old life.
b. 这经节描述人生的情况。This verse describes the human condition
c. 在你的思想里有战争:是肉体情欲和圣灵在战争。
There is a war in your thought life: fleshly lusts vs. the Holy Spirit
d. 肉体的意思是“反对神的态度”。肉体情欲又叫“旧的我”。
Flesh means “attitude against God.” Fleshly lusts is also called “the old me.”
e. 圣灵赐与能力给“新的我”。The Holy Spirit empowers the “new me.”
f. 每一个信徒都拥有圣灵,但是不一定总是都听从他。罗8:9
Every believer has the Holy Spirit, but does not always listen. Romans 8:9
g. 你可以选择跟着圣灵走,或者接受圣灵的引导—但是你也可以选择拒绝祂。帖5:19。
You can “walk” or “be led” by the Spirit – or you can refuse. 1 Thessalonians 5:19.
h. 你的行为若不是表现圣灵的影响,就是表现肉体的影响。Your behavior reveals if you are motivated by the old me (flesh) or the new me (empowered by the Holy Spirit).

6. a. 你在信仰上成长,过正常基督徒生活,果子自然的会出现。
As you mature in faith, leading the normal Christian life, fruit will naturally occur.
(认罪,领圣餐,在困难中依靠神,等)
(confessing sins, taking communion, trusting God during difficulties)
b. 你若反抗圣灵,果子也会变少。If you resist the Spirit, there will be less fruit.
(不愿意认罪,不想原谅得罪你的人,不迴避容易受引诱的地方,等)
(not confessing sin, not forgiving others, not avoiding places of temptation)

7.请参考徒10:44。See Acts 10:44.
a. 那时彼得不是讲圣灵:第38节述说他 在讲谁:
Peter was not talking about the Spirit. Verse 38 shows whom he was talking about.
b, 我们仰望耶稣的时候,圣灵就会做工。The Spirit works as we look to Jesus. Acts 10:44。
