Pembicara : Ka Ester
- Langkah awal : Re-born (Yohanes 3 : 3 -6)
ayat 6 (amplified) =
what is born of [from] flesh is flesh [of the physical]; and what is born of the Spirit is spirit. –> inilah alasan kita membangun manusia roh bukan manusia daging.
manusia roh = was born from Spirit
lahir dari roh –> daging tidak punya kuasa lagi
Roma 10 : 9-10 -> mengaku dengan mulut, percaya dalam hati.
Percaya inilah yang membuat kita diselamatkan, karena pertobatan bukan usaha manusia.
- Membangun perlu bahan bangunan (Kingdom supply)
Filipi 4 : 19 =
“Allahku akan memenuhi segala keperluanmu menurut kekayaan dan kemuliaan-Nya di dalam Kristus Yesus.”
menurut kekayaan dan kemuliaan-Nya –> lebiiiiih dari cukup!
1 Petrus 5 : 10
Dia yang memanggil, Dia sendiri juga yang melengkapi (Himself!)
…the God of all grace [Who imparts all blessing and favor], Who has called you to His [own] eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be,establish and ground you securely, and strengthen, and settle you.
- Foundation – Fondasi
Yohanes 1 : 12 (amplified)
but to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority [power, privilege, right] …
1 Yohanes 4 : 4
Roh yang ada dalam kita lebih besar daripada apapun!
Markus 8 : 34-35 (amplified)
ayat 34 =
..if anyone intends to come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and [joining Me as a disciple and siding with My party] follow with Me [continually, cleaving steadfastly to Me]
*yang melakukan ‘come after’ adalah son, bukan sekedar children
*deny : forget, ignore, disown, lose sight of himself and his own interests.*
ayat 35 =
for whoever wants to save his [higher, spiritual, eternal] life, will lose it [the lower, natural, temporal life which is lived only on earth]; and whoever gives up his life [which is lived only on earth] for My sake and the Gospel’s will save it [his higher, spiritual life in the eternal kingdom of God].
- The Building – Bangunan
Yohanes 15 : 1-8
ayat 4 (NIV)
Abide in Me, & I in you. As
the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither
can you, unless you abide in ME.
– Abide (Mazmur 27 : 4)
One thing have I asked of the Lord, that
will I seek,
inquire for, & (insistently) require: that I may dwell in the house of the
Lord (in His presence)
all the days of my life, to behold & gaze upon the beauty (the
& the delightful loveliness) of
the Lord & to meditate,
consider, & inquire in His temple.
Yohanes 4 : 30-34
ayat 34 (amplified) =
.. My food is to do the will (pleasure) of Him who sent Me and to accomplish and completely finish His work.
Galatia 5 : 25 (amplified) =
if we live by the (Holy) spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. (If by the Holy
Spirit we have our life in God, let us go forward walking
in line, our
conduct controlled by
*walking in line = deny yourself, take up cross, follow Him
Markus 1 : 35 =
pagi-pagi benar, waktu hari masih gelap, Ia bangun dan pergi ke luar. Ia pergi ke tempat yang sunyi dan berdoa disana.
Yesus bangun dan pergi ke luar –> untuk mengingatkan kita, ini bukan perkara gedung atau tempatnya, tapi His presence (hadirat Allah)
Abide and Obey!
