「今天資訊發達，為甚麼要 參加教會？」 “Why do we come to church if we can get fed online?”
弗4:11-16 祂所賜的，有使徒，有先知，有傳 福音的，有牧師和教師，為要成全 聖徒，各盡其職，建立基督的身體， 11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up
until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. 14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.
15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
成長的三個要素： The Three Elements of Growth: 1. 真理 Truth ： 對神的兒子有一致信仰和認識 unity in faith and the knowledge of the Son of God
2. 恩典 Grace ： 因愛我們 In love: 祂揀選我們 He chose us 得兒子的名分 He adopted us 罪得赦免 He forgave our sins
你是個知恩，感恩，報恩的人嗎？ Do you recognize His grace, give thanks for His grace, give in return to His grace?
3. 時間 Time ： 「直等到」 “until we …”
我們怎樣幫助别人成長？ How do we contribute to people’s growth? 間接方面 Indirectly: 在團契中將人帶到神面前與祂聯繫 Connect people with God in fellowship 鼓勵人藉著各樣屬靈操練常與神聯繫 Encourage people to connect with God through spiritual disciplines
為别人的成長常常祷告 Pray for their growth 我們負責常與神聯繫，神負責改造我們， 使我們更成熟 “We do the connecting, God will the work of perfecting.”
直接方面 Directly: 委身團契 / 小组 Commit to connect 與喜樂的人同樂，與哀哭的人同苦 Rejoice and mourn together 彼此擔當重擔 Carry each other’s burdens
互相認罪彼此代求 Confess and pray together 彼此鼓勵 Encourage each other 各人以恩赐彼此服事 Serve each other with the gifts received
常有的攔阻 Possible hindrances: 太忙碌 Busyness 避免與人深交 Avoid intimate relationship 只委身教會聚會與活動 Committed to church meetings and activities but not relationship 只有付出 Always on the giving end
「有神够了」的屬靈觀 “ Only God and I” style spirituality 認識神只重知識不重關係 Knowing God is about knowledge not relationship 與神與人的關係皆以自我為中心 Self-centered, self-serving relationship
