敬拜的心 A Heart of Worship

哈該書 Haggai

Speaker 講道 :林馬可 Mark Lehman

Audio Sermon 聽講道

認識神本身是獎勵。

Knowing God is its own reward.

 

背景:。聖殿的工程開始之後,受到仇敵撒瑪利亞人的阻擾,百姓建殿的心於是冷淡了;再加上旱災和經濟不景氣,建殿的工作便停頓下來,直到主前520年先知哈該出來鼓勵百姓繼續重建聖殿為止。CGST

Background: After the work on the Temple had begun and having been hindered by the enemy Samaritans, the people’s heart for building the Temple grew cold. Also, with the addition of a drought and bad economy, the work on the Temple had stopped until 520 B.C. when the prophet Haggai came out to encourage the people to continue building the Temple.

 

特色:  全書只有38節,有25次重複強調先知的信息來自神,包括「萬軍之耶和華說」、「耶和華說」等字眼。

Uniqueness: There are only 38 verses in the whole book, but 25 times it repeatedly emphasizes that the message is from God, with “Lord of Hosts,” “Thus said the Lord.”

 

地點:南國人(被擄回來後)

Southerner, after Exile

 

主題: 鼓勵回歸的百姓繼續重建聖殿的工程。

Theme: Encouraging the returnees from the Exile to continue the work of rebuilding the Temple.

 

文學體裁: 表面看來平鋪直敘,缺乏文采。有仔細日期的記錄。

Genre: On the surface it is direct narrative and lacks literary style. The dates are specific.

 

  1. I.          把神看得比自己的目標還要重要

Put the Lord ahead of personal goals.

這殿仍然荒涼,你們自己還住天花板的房屋嗎?1:4

“Is it a time for you yourselves to be living in your paneled houses, while this house remains a ruin?”

It’s OK to own a house, car, etc.  But what is your attitude toward God?

 

  1. II.        服事神來榮耀祂

Serve the Lord for His glory.

建造這殿,我就因此喜樂,且得榮耀。

Build my house, so that I may take pleasure in it and be honored,” says the Lord.  1:8

耶和華激動百姓的心。And the Lord stirred up the spirit of all the people.  1:14

我必再一次震動天地、滄海,與旱地。我必震動萬國。I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land.  I will shake all nations.  2:6-7

我必震動天地。I will shake the heavens and the earth.  2:21

 

  1. III.       享受神豐富的應許

Enjoy the Lord’s abundant promises.

 

  1. 神的同在 His presence

我與你們同在。I am with you, declares the Lord.  1:13

 

你們都當剛強做工,因為我與你們同在。  2:4 (三次 three times)

 

Be strong: for I am with you.

(Eph弗6:10)

 

  • 神的平安 His peace

我必賜平安。I will give peace.  2:9

 

  • 神的重視 His value

我必以你為印,因我揀選了你。

I will make you like my signet ring, for I have chosen you.  2:23

 

  • 認識神本身是獎勵。

Knowing God is its own reward.
