马大的侍奉

吴业兴牧师

经文:路加福音第十章38-42节

 

约翰福音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。”

执事的选择 The Choosing of A Deacon

经文:使徒行传6:1-6节 Verses: Acts 6:1-6

 

I. The plan of a deacon ministry 执事的预备

“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

“于是十二使徒召集了众门徒,说:“要我们放下神的道,去管理伙食,是不合适的。 ”   使徒行传 6:2

Look at the plan of a deacon执事的预备

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

“至于我们,我们要专心祈祷、传道。” 使徒行传 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

“神的道传开了;在耶路撒冷,门徒人数大大增加,有很多祭司也信从了真道。” 使徒行传 6:7

3 Things Happened三件事情发生了﹕

1). The Word of God spread神的道传开了

2). The number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem rapidly在耶路撒冷,门徒人数大大增加

3). A great number of priests were obedient to the faith 有很多祭司也信从了真道

Two Main Purpose of Deacon Ministry执事的两个主要目的

To Solve the Problems 解决问题

To Assist the Pastor 帮助牧师

II. The prerequisites of a deacon作执事的条件

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

照样,执事也必须庄重,不一口两舌,不酗酒,不贪不义之财,用清洁的良心持守信仰的奥祕。他们也必须先受考验,若没有可责之处,然后才让他们作执事。 照样,他们的妻子(“他们的妻子”可解作“女执事”)也要庄重,不说谗言,有节制,凡事忠心。执事只可以作一个妻子的丈夫,善于管理儿女和自己的家。那善于作执事的,就为自己得了好的位分,也因着相信基督耶稣得到大大的胆量。 提摩太前书 3: 8-13

What Does the Deacon Obtain? 执事可以得到什么﹖

The Respect of God’s People 神子民的尊重

The Eternal Reward from God 神永恒的赏赐

III. The pattern of a deacon 执事的模范

众人听了这些话,心中非常恼怒,就向着司提反咬牙切齿。 但司提反被圣灵充满,定睛望着天,看见 神的荣耀,并且看见耶稣站在 神的右边, 就说:“看哪!我看见天开了,人子站在 神的右边。” 众人大声喊叫,掩著耳朵,一齐向他冲过去,把他推出城外,用石头打他。那些证人把自己的衣服,放在一个名叫扫罗的青年人脚前。他们用石头打司提反的时候,他呼求说:“主耶稣啊,求你接收我的灵魂!” 然后跪下来大声喊著说:“主啊,不要把这罪归给他们!”说了这话,就睡了。 使徒行传 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
