0101 – Your Abundant Life Starts Now 丰盛生命从现在开始

Ephesians 1:3,18 (NKJV) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,… the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints

As Christians, we have a spiritual inheritance that comes with the positional truth that Jesus has obtained for us through His work of redemption. We were unable to stand right before God because all of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. However, the blood of Jesus Christ has purchased peace with God for us and obtained every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ for us. It is an inheritance that belongs to all of us when God has chosen to see us in Christ. This includes being a new creation, sealed with the Holy Spirit, the right to become a child of God, seen as righteous, holy and blameless, accepted in the Beloved, empowered by the Holy Spirit for godly living and seated with Christ in the heavenly places besides the Heavenly Father.

John 10:10 (NKJV) The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

We have eternal life, but the abundant life begins on earth now! We have all the spiritual blessings in the heavenly places that belong to us now, and by faith, we are to take hold of this promise that we are able to enjoy the abundant life now.

3 John 1:2 (NKJV) Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.

Prosperity is more than just materially, though God also wants us to be well-provided for, but God wants us to prosper holistically too, namely spiritually, emotionally and physically. We are prospering spiritually when we have a restored relationship with Him, stay connected with Him and spend eternity with Him. He also wants us to prosper in our soul when we are doing well emotionally and mentally. We do well in our soul when our inter-personal relationships are flourishing, when we have learnt from Him to forgive, extend grace, and not to hold grudges against others who have wronged us. He also desires for us to have a healthy body so that we can serve Him. Therefore, we have every right to all kinds of victory like joy, grace, faithfulness, and blessing. Let us have the courage to claim and enjoy these things!

丰盛生命从现在开始

以 弗 所 書 1:3,18: 3愿 颂 赞 归 与 我 们 主 耶 稣 基 督 的 父 神 ! 他 在 基 督 里 曾 赐 给 我 们 天 上 各 样 属 灵 的 福 气 :18 并 且 照 明 你 们 心 中 的 眼 睛 , 使 你 们 知 道 他 的 恩 召 有 何 等 指 望 , 他 在 圣 徒 中 得 的 基 业 有 何 等 丰 盛 的 荣 耀 ;

作为基督徒,我们拥有属灵的传承,这是因着耶稣通过救赎工作为我们获得的位分真理。我们无法站立在上帝面前,因为我们都犯了罪,亏缺了上帝的荣耀。然而,耶稣基督的宝血为我们赎回了与上帝的和平,并为我们在基督里获得了一切天上属灵的祝福。当上帝选择在基督里看待我们时,这是属于我们所有人的遗产。这包括成为新造的人,被圣灵封印,成为上帝儿女的权利,被视为义、圣洁和无罪,在爱子中蒙悦纳,由圣灵赋予力量敬虔地生活,并与基督一同坐在天上父神的旁边。

約 翰 福 音 10:10: 盗 贼 来 , 无 非 要 偷 窃 , 杀 害 , 毁 坏 ; 我 来 了 , 是 要 叫 羊 ( 或 作 : 人 ) 得 生 命 , 并 且 得 的 更 丰 盛 。

我们拥有永生,但在地上,我们现在就拥有丰盛的生命!现在我们拥有了天上一切属灵的祝福,我们要凭着信心抓住这个应许,那就是我们此刻就能够享受丰盛的生命。

約 翰 三 書 1: 2 亲 爱 的 兄 弟 阿 , 我 愿 你 凡 事 兴 盛 , 身 体 健 壮 , 正 如 你 的 灵 魂 兴 盛 一 样 .

兴盛不仅仅是物质上的兴盛,尽管上帝乐见我们凡事充足,但祂也希望我们在属灵,情感和身体等各方面也同样兴盛。当我们与祂恢复关系,保持声息相通并与祂共度永恒时,我们就拥有了属灵的兴盛。当我们情绪稳定、心智健全时,祂乐见我们灵魂兴盛。当我们的人际关系和谐顺畅,当我们从祂那里学会饶恕、恩待他人、对错待我们之人不心怀苦毒时,我们的魂就安适了。他还希望我们拥有健康的身体,这样我们就可以服侍祂。因此,我们拥有完胜的一切权力,如喜乐、恩慈、信实和福份。 让我们有勇气主张并享受这一切!
