經文:路加福音第十章38-42節

 

約翰福音10: 38-42

38 他们走路的时候,耶稣进了一个村庄。有一个名叫马大的女人,接他到家里。

39 她有一个妹妹,名叫马利亚,坐在主的脚前听道。

40 马大被许多要作的事,弄得心烦意乱,就上前来,说:“主啊,我妹妹让我一个人侍候,你不理吗?请吩咐她来帮助我。”

41 主回答她:“马大,马大,你为许多事操心忙碌,

42 但是最需要的只有一件,马利亚已经选择了那上好的分,是不能从她夺去的。”

經文:使徒行传6:1-6節 Verses: Acts 6:1-6

 

I. The plan of a deacon ministry 執事的預備

“So the twelve summoned the congregation of the disciples and said, “It is not desirable for us to neglect the word of God in order to serve tables.”    Acts 6:2

「於是十二使徒召集了眾門徒,說:“要我們放下神的道,去管理伙食,是不合適的。 」   使徒行傳 6:2

Look at the plan of a deacon執事的預備

“But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.”  Acts 6:4

「至於我們,我們要專心祈禱、傳道。」 使徒行傳 6:4

“The word of God kept on spreading; and the number of the disciples continued to increase greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests were becoming obedient to the faith.”  Acts 6:7

「神的道傳開了;在耶路撒冷,門徒人數大大增加,有很多祭司也信從了真道。」 使徒行傳 6:7

3 Things Happened三件事情發生了﹕

1). The Word of God spread神的道傳開了

II. The prerequisites of a deacon作執事的條件

Deacons likewise must be men of dignity, not double-tongued, or addicted to much wine or fond of sordid gain, but holding to the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. These men must also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons if they are beyond reproach. Women must likewise be dignified, not malicious gossips, but temperate, faithful in all things. Deacons must be husbands of only one wife, and good managers of their children and their own households. For those who have served well as deacons obtain for themselves a high standing and great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.    1 Tim. 3: 8-13

照樣,執事也必須莊重,不一口兩舌,不酗酒,不貪不義之財,用清潔的良心持守信仰的奧祕。他們也必須先受考驗,若沒有可責之處,然後才讓他們作執事。 照樣,他們的妻子(“他們的妻子”可解作“女執事”)也要莊重,不說讒言,有節制,凡事忠心。執事只可以作一個妻子的丈夫,善於管理兒女和自己的家。那善於作執事的,就為自己得了好的位分,也因著相信基督耶穌得到大大的膽量。 提摩太前書 3: 8-13

What Does the Deacon Obtain? 執事可以得到甚麼﹖

The Respect of God’s People 神子民的尊重

The Eternal Reward from God 神永恆的賞賜

III. The pattern of a deacon 執事的模範

眾人聽了這些話,心中非常惱怒,就向著司提反咬牙切齒。 但司提反被聖靈充滿,定睛望著天,看見 神的榮耀,並且看見耶穌站在 神的右邊, 就說:“看哪!我看見天開了,人子站在 神的右邊。” 眾人大聲喊叫,掩著耳朵,一齊向他衝過去,把他推出城外,用石頭打他。那些證人把自己的衣服,放在一個名叫掃羅的青年人腳前。他們用石頭打司提反的時候,他呼求說:“主耶穌啊,求你接收我的靈魂!” 然後跪下來大聲喊著說:“主啊,不要把這罪歸給他們!”說了這話,就睡了。 使徒行傳 7:54-60

“Now when they heard this, they were cut to the quick, and they began gnashing their teeth at him. But being full of the Holy Spirit, he gazed intently into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God; and he said, “Behold, I see the heavens opened up and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.” But they cried out with a loud voice, and covered their ears and rushed at him with one impulse. When they had driven him out of the city, they began stoning him; and the witnesses laid aside their robes at the feet of a young man named Saul. They went on stoning Stephen as he called on the Lord and said, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!” Then falling on his knees, he cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them!” Having said this, he fell asleep.”   Acts 7:54-60
