第七课(Lesson Seven)

第七课(Lesson Seven) LESSON SEVEN 第七课 THE HOLY SPIRIT USES LAW AND GOSPEL 圣灵运用律法和福音 Last time we saw how the Holy Spirit works with people so they depend on Jesus. This week we look at how the Holy Spirit uses the Bible’s two main principles to turn us to God and bring us into His family. 上次我们看到圣灵如何工作,使人信靠耶稣。这次课我们看下圣灵如何运用圣经的两个主要原则使我们靠近神,并且带我们到神的国。

What are the Bible’s two main principles? 圣经的两个主要原则是什么? LAW 律法 The Bible’s first main principle is the Law. God’s Law is His rules for human living. 第一个准则是律法。神的律法就是规定人如何生活。 One word sums up God’s Law principle – love (Romans 13:10). God’s standard for human living is perfect love for Him and everyone else (Matthew 22:35-40). The Ten Commandments are a more detailed summary of the way we should be. They are on last page of this lesson. 一个词可以概括神的律法—爱(罗马书 13:10)神规定人的生活准则是,完全的爱神,爱他人。(马太福音22:35-40)。十条诫命是我们该如何行的更详细的概括。这十条诫命在本课的最后一页。 God’s Law principle has three different jobs: 神的律法准则有3个不同的作用:

  1. Safety Valve: God’s Law principle keeps people from civil disobedience (Romans 2:14-15).
  2. 安全线:神的律法准则阻止人们违背神。(罗马书2:14-15).
  3. Mirror: God’s rules for human life expose our shortcomings – SOS (Romans 3:19-20).
  4. 镜子:神对人的生活规定的准则暴露了我们的缺点。—相当于紧急求救信号 (罗马书3:19-20).
  5. Gift List: God’s Law gives believers a helpful outlet for thanking God (Ephesians 4:17-24).
  6. 礼物清单: 神的律法帮助信徒表示对神的感恩。(以弗所书4:17-24).

What does God’s law do for me? 神的律法对我有何益处?

God’s Law prompts people to repent. That means three kinds of attitude adjustments: 神的律法促使人忏悔。这意味着3种态度转变:

  1. My personal life has issues. I have made wrong decisions in my head, with my mouth, and by my behavior.
  2. 我的个人生活存在问题。我的头脑做出了错误的决定,说了错话,做了错事。
  3. My relationship with God has issues. I have ruined things beyond repair.
  4. 我和神的关系有问题。我已经破坏了它,不能复原。
  5. My priorities have issues. More than anything else, I need Jesus.
  6. 我人生首要的事有问题。首先,我需要耶稣。 GOSPEL 福音 The Bible’s second main principle is the Gospel. The Gospel is God’s news about how Jesus met all God’s standards for humans in our place. He was the ideal person and served the sentence God’s justice demands for all our sinning (Galatians 3:13). The gospel tells us that God gives us what He demands we do (2 Corinthians 5:21). 圣经的第二个主要准则是福音。福音就是神告诉我们,耶稣如何替我们满足神对人类的要求标准。耶稣是个完全人,替我们的罪受审服刑。(加拉太书3:13). 福音告诉我们,耶稣已经为我们做了神要求我们做的事情。(哥林多后书5:21). What does the Gospel do for me? 福音为我做了什么? Jesus was serving as humanity’s substitute with His life, damnation, death and return to life. We get credit for every second of Jesus’ ideal life. He took responsibility for mankind’s wrongs. By bringing Jesus to life God was pronouncing humanity “not guilty” (Romans 4:25) and was giving people a new identity (Romans 6:6-11). 耶稣从生,到被钉十字架,死去,复活,代替人类受罪。我们从耶稣完美的人生的每一秒里都获得功劳。他替人的罪承担后果。通过使耶稣复活,神宣判人类不再有罪。(罗马书4:25) 并且给了人新的身份。(罗马书6:6-11). God wants everyone to believe Jesus has done this for them personally. Those who reject this amnesty have to live without it forever (Mark 16:16). The more people hear the Gospel preceded by the Law, the more opportunities the Holy Spirit has to convince us that it is true, that we are safe from God’s rage. With the Holy Spirit’s help, the Gospel sells itself (Romans 10:17). 神想要每个人都相信耶稣耶稣为每个人都做了这些。那些拒绝相信赦免的,将永远不会获得赦免。(马可福音16:16)。在听到律法之后,人们听到的福音越多,圣灵就越有机会使我们确信我们免于神的愤怒是真的。藉着圣灵的帮助,福音不证自明(罗马书10:17)。 Some case histories of the Holy Spirit succeeding with Law and Gospel: 2 Samuel 12:1-14 God sent Nathan with a message for King David. Nathan used the Law and Gospel approach. The Holy Spirit made David responsive. Psalm 51 is proof that God gave David a new attitude. He saw the error of his ways with Uriah and Bathsheba. Acts 2:22-41 The Holy Spirit used Peter and his Law and Gospel approach with a huge crowd. A lot of people recognized their sin and their Savior. It worked on 3000 people. 圣灵成功运用律法和福音的例子: 撒母耳记下12:1-14 神差遣拿单去带消息给大卫。拿单使用了律法和福音的劝说方式。圣灵使大卫对拿单所说的有了反应。诗篇51章证明,神给了大卫一个新的态度。他认识到自己和乌利亚,拔示巴之间的错事。 使徒行传2:22-41 圣灵使用彼得对一大群人运用律法和福音的方法,(使)很多人认识到自己的罪和救主。3000人都领受了救恩。 Homework:
