1 Timothy 提摩太前書 3:1-15

14 Although I hope to come to you soon, I am writing you these instructions so that, 15 if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth.  1 Timothy 3:14-15

14 我把這些事寫給你,希望不久可以到你那裡去;15 假如我來遲了,你也可以知道在 神的家裡應該怎樣行。這家就是永活 神的教會、真理的柱石和根基。提摩太前書 3:14-15

1. Why? The Underlying Motivation 理由? 根本的動機

Here is a trustworthy saying: If anyone sets his heart on being an overseer, he desires a noble task.  1 Timothy 3:1

“如果有人渴慕監督的職分,他就是愛慕善工。”這話是可信的。提摩太前書 3:1

2. Who? The Qualifications是誰? 資格

2Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife, 4 He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him with proper respect. 5 (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?)  1 Timothy 3:2; 4-5

2 所以作監督的,必須無可指摘,只作一個妻子的丈夫, 4 好好管理自己的家,使兒女凡事敬重順服。5 人若不知道管理自己的家,怎能照管上帝的教會呢?提摩太前書 3:2; 4-5

  • · Above reproach  無可指摘
  • · Good family relationships  好的家庭關係

2…temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money.

1 Timothy 3:2-3

2…有節制,自律,莊重,樂意接待客旅,善於教導,3 不好酒,不打人,只要溫和,與人無爭,不貪財,提摩太前書 3:2-3

  • · Self-controlled ( no drunkenness, violence, quarrelsome, lover of money)  自律(不好酒,不打人,只要溫和,與人無爭,不貪財)
  • · Hospitable  樂意接待客旅
  • · Able to teach  善於教導

6He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. 7 He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap.  1 Timothy 3:6-7

6 初信主的不可作監督,恐怕他驕傲,就落在魔鬼所受的刑罰裡。7 作監督的也必須在教外有好聲譽,免得他被人毀謗,就落在魔鬼的陷阱裡。

提摩太前書 3:6-7

  • · Not a new Christian  非初信者
  • · A good reputation with non-Christians  在教外有好名聲

8Deacons, likewise, are to be men worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. 9 They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. 10 They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons. 11 In the same way, their wives are to be women worthy of respect, not malicious talkers but temperate and trustworthy in everything. 12A deacon must be the husband of but one wife and must manage his children and his household well.  1 Timothy 3:8-12

8 照樣,執事也必須莊重,不一口兩舌,不酗酒,不貪不義之財,9 用清潔的良心持守信仰的奧祕。10 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。11 照樣,他們的妻子也要莊重,不說讒言,有節制,凡事忠心。12 執事只可以作一個妻子的丈夫,善於管理兒女和自己的家。

提摩太前書 3:8-12 

  • · A good grasp of Biblical truth  堅守聖經真理
  • · Willing to be tested  願意接受考驗 

3. This Week’s Plan 本週目標

2 While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” 3 So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off.  Acts 13:2-3

2 他們事奉主,並且禁食的時候,聖靈說:要為我把巴拿巴和掃羅分別出來,去作我呼召他們作的工。3 於是他們禁食禱告,為兩人按手,就派他們去了。使徒行傳 13:2-3 

  • · Fasting – attitude and actions  禁食禱告的態度與行動
  • · Prayer – for the church, others and yourself  為教會、其他弟兄姐妹、與你自己禱告 

4. The Benefits of Good Leadership 參與領導團隊的優點

Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus.  1 Timothy 3:13

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 3:13
