神爱世人,甚至将他的独生子赐给他们,叫一切信他的,
不至灭亡,反得永生。(约3:16).

【双语灵修】葛培理布道团:圣灵充满(2018-10-12)

“不要醉酒,酒能使人放荡;乃要被 圣 灵充满。”以弗所书 5:18

Do not get drunk on wine…Instead, be filled with the Spirit. 

Ephesians 5:18, NIV

我认为那些没有被圣灵充满的基督徒都是有瑕疵的。保罗对以弗所基督徒说的“被圣灵充满“也是对我们每一个时代的基督徒说的,没有例外。我们可以下结论:我们得到命令被圣灵充满,如果没有被充满,我们就是犯罪。我们没有被圣灵充满,也就对圣灵犯罪。也要注意,按照希腊文原文,被圣灵充满,不是一次性,而是持续的。应该翻译成:被圣灵持续充满。

Merrill C. Tenney博士用一个例子来说明圣灵的持续充满。在一个乡下农场的厨房里,有一个水池的水一直清澈,因为一根水管连接山泉,永不停息。同样,基督徒不能等到圣灵消失了,再重新充满。我们必须时时刻刻被圣灵充满,才能得到圣灵的方向和力量。

I think it proper to say that anyone who is not Spirit-filled is a defective Christian. Paul’s command to the Ephesian Christians, “Be filled with the Spirit,” is binding on all of us Christians everywhere in every age. There are no exceptions. We must conclude that since we are ordered to be filled with the Spirit, we are sinning if we are not filled. And our failure to be filled with the Spirit constitutes one of the greatest sins against the Holy Spirit.It is interesting to note that the command to “Be filled with the Spirit” actually has the idea of continuously being filled in the original Greek language which Paul used. We are not filled once for all, like a bucket. Instead, we are to be filled constantly. It might be translated. “Be filled and keep on being filled,” or “Be being filled.”Ephesians 5:18 literally says, “Keep on being filled with the Spirit.”

Dr. Merrill C. Tenney has compared this to the situation of an old –time farmhouse kitchen. In one corner was a sink; above it was a pipe through which came a continuous stream of water from the spring outside. The water, by running constantly, kept the sink brimful of good water. In like manner the Christian is not to let himself be emptied of the Spirit that he may later become full again; rather he is constantly to accept the direction and energy of the Spirit so he is always overflowing.
