第三百零三天:禱告使聖徒看見成全的目的

禱告使聖徒看見,成全聖徒的目的是要他們作職事的工作,好生機的建造基督的身體(弗四11~16,12節註1、註2、註3,16節註1,帖前二11,西一28~29,詩歌606首,第3~4節)。

Eph. 4:11-16—And He Himself gave some as apostles and some as prophets and some as evangelists and some as shepherds and teachers, for the perfecting of the saints unto the work of the ministry, unto the building up of the Body of Christ, until we all arrive at the oneness of the faith and of the full knowledge of the Son of God, at a full-grown man, at the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, that we may be no longer little children tossed by waves and carried about by every wind of teaching in the sleight of men, in craftiness with a view to a system of error, but holding to truth in love, we may grow up into Him in all things, who is the Head, Christ, out from whom all the Body, being joined together and being knit together through every joint of the rich supply and through the operation in the measure of each one part, causes the growth of the Body unto the building up of itself in love.

帖前二11—正如你們所知道的,我們怎樣勸勉你們,撫慰你們,向你們作見證,待你們每一個人,好像父親待自己的孩子一樣;

西一28-29—我們宣揚祂,是用全般的智慧警戒各人,教導各人,好將各人在基督裡成熟的獻上;我也為此勞苦,照著祂在我裡面大能的運行,竭力奮鬥。
