論聖靈ON THE HOLY SPIRIT

 

  1. 聖靈是三位一體上帝的第三位,從聖父和聖子而出,同質,同權,同榮;與父與子一樣,世人理當世世代代信祂,愛祂,順服祂,敬拜祂,直到永遠。The Holy Spirit, the third person in the Trinity, proceeding from the Father and the Son, of the same substance and equal in power and glory, is, together with the Father and the Son, to be believed in, loved, obeyed, and worshipped throughout all ages.

  1. 聖靈是生命之主,祂賜生命給各處的活物;是一切美善的思想,純真的情操,和聖潔的計謀的來源。祂感動先知宣講上帝的話,默示聖經所有的作者無誤地記錄上帝的聖旨和心意。祂特別被交託施行福音予人。聖靈預備福音的道路,與福音同工,以祂的大能說服人的心思與良心,以致拒絕福音之憐憫邀請的人,不僅無可推諉,且因抗拒聖靈而有罪。

He is the Lord and Giver of life, everywhere present, and is the source of all good thoughts, pure desires, and holy counsels in men.  By him the prophets were moved to speak the word of God, and all the writers of the Holy Scriptures inspired to record infallibly the mind and will of God.  The dispensation of the gospel is especially committed to him.  He prepares the way for it, accompanies it with his persuasive power, and urges its message upon the reason and conscience of men, so that they who reject its merciful offer are not only without excuse, but are also guilty of resisting the Holy Spirit.

  1. 聖父喜悅賜聖靈給一切求祂的人。聖靈是唯一有效施行救贖者;祂以自己的恩典重生人,使人扎心知罪,感動人悔改,說服人接受福音,賜人能力信靠耶穌基督。聖靈使所有信徒與基督聯合,在他們心中居住,安慰他們,使他們成聖,賜他們作上帝兒女的靈和禱告的靈。聖靈執行所有恩典的職事,使信徒成為聖潔,身上有上帝的印記,直到救贖的日子。

The Holy Spirit, whom the Father is ever willing to give to all who ask him, is the only efficient agent in the application of redemption.  He regenerates men by his grace, convicts them of sin, moves them to repentance, and persuades and enables them to embrace Jesus Christ by faith.  He unites all believers to Christ, dwells in them as their Comforter and Sanctifier, gives them the spirit of Adoption and Prayer, and performs all those gracious offices by which they are sanctified and sealed unto the day of redemption.

  1. 聖靈住在所有信徒堙A因此信徒與基督在生命上聯合。基督是他們的頭;信徒們也因此在教會堜憐嘗p合,教會乃是基督的身體。聖靈呼召,膏抹牧師們擔任他們神聖的職事,並賜教會其他的職員其職位所需的恩賜和能力。聖靈也賜各樣的恩賜和恩典給教會的成員。聖靈使上帝話語的傳講滿有能力,使福音的聖禮大發功效。聖靈保存教會,使教會增長,煉淨教會,直到祂使教會在上帝的面前,全然聖潔。

By the indwelling of the Holy Spirit all believers are vitally united to Christ, who is the Head, are thus united one to another in the Church, which is his body.  He calls and anoints ministers for their holy office, qualifies all other officers in the church for their special work, and imparts various gifts and graces to its members.  He gives efficacy to the word and to the ordinances of the gospel.  By him the church will be preserved, increased, purified, and at last made perfectly holy in the presence of God.
