唯獨基督(2): 寶貴的房角石與活石

主題經文:4 主乃活石,固然是被人所棄的,卻是被 神所揀選、所寶貴的。 5 你們來到主面前,也就像活石,被建造成為靈宮,作聖潔的祭司,藉著耶穌基督奉獻 神所悅納的靈祭。 6 因為經上說:看哪,我把所揀選、所寶貴的房角石安放在錫安;信靠祂的人必不至於羞愧。(彼前2:4-6)

背誦經文:主耶和華如此說:看哪,我在錫安放一塊石頭作為根基,是試驗過的石頭, 是穩固根基,寶貴的房角 … (28:16)

A)    基督是一切屬靈建造的根基

a)  是唯一的根基

Š     10 我照神所給我的恩,好像一個聰明的工頭,立好了根基,有別人在上面建造;只是各人要謹慎怎樣在上面建造。 11 因為那已經立好的根基就是耶穌基督,此外沒有人能立別的根基。 (林前3:10-11

b)  是寶貴的房角

Š     16 主耶和華如此說:看哪,我在錫安放一塊石頭作為根基,是試驗過的石頭, 是穩固根基,寶貴的房角 … (28:16)

B)    我們與主同為活石,一同被建造

Š     4 主乃活石5你們來到主面前,也就像活石,被建造成為靈宮,作聖潔的祭司(彼前2:4-5

a)  成為靈宮-成為 神藉著聖靈居住的所在

19 這樣,你們不再作外人和客旅,是與聖徒同國,是 神家裏的人了; 20 並且被建造在使徒和先知的根基上,有基督耶穌自己為房角石, 21 ( 或譯:全)房靠祂聯絡得合式,漸漸成為主的聖殿。 22 你們也靠祂同被建造,成為 神藉著聖靈居住的所在。 (2:19-22)

b)  作聖潔的祭司-藉著耶穌基督奉獻 神所悅納的靈祭 (彼前25)

 

Christ Alone (2): The Precious Corner Stone and Living Stone

Scriptures: Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.  Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture, “Behold, I lay in Zion a chief cornerstone, elect, precious, and he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.” (1 Peter 2:4-6)

Memorization Scripture: Therefore thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, a tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; whoever believes will not act hastily. (Isa 28:16)

A)      Christ is the foundation for all spiritual construction

a) The Only Foundation

Š   According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it.  For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. (1 Cor 3:10-11)

b) The Precious Corner Stone

Š   Therefore thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, a tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; … (Isa 28:16)

B)      We are livings stones with the Lord, being build up together

a)   Build up a spiritual house – becoming the dwelling place of God through the Holy Spirit

Š   20 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit. (Eph 2:19-22)

b)  Be a holy priesthood –  5 … a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 2:5)

This is Amazing Grace

這是奇妙恩典

 

Who breaks the power of sin and darkness
Whose love is mighty and so much stronger
The King of glory, the King above all Kings

Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder
Leaves us breathless in awe and wonder
The King of glory, the King above all Kings

This is amazing grace
This is unfailing love
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross
You laid down Your life
That I would be set free
Jesus I sing for all that You’ve done for me

Who brings our chaos back into order
Who makes the orphan a son and daughter
The King of glory, the King of glory

Who rules the nations with truth and justice
Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance
The king of glory, the King above all Kings

Worthy is the lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave

 

 

 

Amazing Love

I'm forgiven, because you were forsaken,

I'm accepted, you were condemned

I'm alive and well, your spirit is within me

Because you died and rose again.

 

Amazing love how can it be

That you my King should die for me

Amazing love, I know its true

And its my joy to honor you, in all I do to honor you

CORNERSTONE

房角石

 

My hope is built on nothing less

我的所有希望根基,

than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;

在於基督公義、寶血;

I dare not trust the sweetest frame,

我不敢靠最好的義,

But wholly trust in Jesus’ name.

我只敢靠祂的名牒。

(副)

Christ alone, Cornerstone

惟基督,是磐石

Weak made strong, in the Savior’s love

藉祂愛,軟弱變剛強

Through the storm

風暴中

He is Lord, Lord of All

祂是主,萬有主

 

(二)

When darkness seems to hide His face,

即有黑雲掩祂的臉,

I rest on His unchanging grace;

祂心不變,祂恩不移;

In every high and stormy gale,

每次風浪雖欲漫淹,

My anchor holds within the veil.

信心的錨拋牢幔裏。

(副)

Christ alone, Cornerstone

惟基督,是磐石

Weak made strong, in the Savior’s love

藉祂愛,軟弱變剛強

Through the storm

風暴中

He is Lord, Lord of All

祂是主,萬有主

 

(三)

His oath, His covenant, His blood,

祂血,祂約何等可靠,

Support me in the whelming flood;

我名已經刻在祂手;

When all around my soul gives way,

四圍雖然都能傾倒,

He then is all my hope and stay.

祂仍存在永不棄守。

(副)

Christ alone, Cornerstone

惟基督,是磐石

Weak made strong, in the Savior’s love

藉祂愛,軟弱變剛強

Through the storm

風暴中

He is Lord, Lord of All

(四)

When He shall come with trumpet sound,

當祂再來,號筒吹響,

Oh, may I then in Him be found;

那時我在祂內出現;

Dressed in His Righteousness alone,

只穿祂的公義衣裳,

Faultless stand before the throne.

無可指責被獻座前。

(副)

Christ alone, Cornerstone

惟基督,是磐石

Weak made strong, in the Savior’s love

藉祂愛,軟弱變剛強

Through the storm

風暴中

He is Lord, Lord of All

祂是主,萬有主
