基督徒的工作觀 Christian View of Work

(Listen to the sermon, 聽講道

講師/Speaker:Mark Lehman

  1. 我們效法神—表現神的形象 (神工作;我們也工作) We imitate God—demonstrate the image of God (God works; we work)

神創造萬物–創 1,2 God made everything Gen 1,2

耶穌在世界上時也工作了–約5:17 Jesus worked when on earth Jn 5:17

現在神(聖靈)也工作–約16:8-11 Now God (Holy Spirit) also works Jn 16:8-11

 

  1. 神吩咐亞當工作–創1:26,28; 2:15 (我們順服神的命令;我們也工作) God commands Adam to work Gen 1:26,28; 2:15 (We obey God’s commands; we also work)

注意:還沒犯罪之前. . . 所以工作不是犯罪的結果Note: before the Fall . . .so, work is not the result of the Fall

施洗約翰說稅吏與兵丁(猶太人討厭的角色)應該留在他們的工作崗位– John the Baptist told the Publicans and soldiers (the roles the Jews disliked the most) to remain in their jobs Lk路3:12-14

 

  1. 藉著工作也可以做神的旨意 By your work you can do the Lord’s will  Eph弗6:5-8

我們做的一切是為耶穌做的Everything we do is for Jesus

我們是基督的僕人We are the servants of Christ

甘心事奉—因為從耶穌得到賞賜    Serve willingly—because we receive a reward from Christ

存心誠實敬畏主–西3:22 with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord Col 3:22

從心裡做,像是給主做的,不是給人做的–西3:23Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men Col 3:23

特別為信主的老闆工作–提前6:2

They must serve believing masters all the better 1 Tim 6:2

(企業家、主管也為耶穌工作–弗6:9) (Entrepreneurs, managers also work for Jesus Eph 6:9)

 

  1. 基督徒管家的態度—Christian attitude of stewardship—

對時間  凡是你手可作的,都當盡力去作 傳9:10 Toward time Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might Eccl 9:10

參: See: Prov 箴6:6-11; 13:4; 19:15; 21:25

對才能 太25:14-30 (五千、三千、一千銀子的比喻) Toward talent Mt 25:14-30 (Parable of the 5, 3, 1 talents)

  1. 負責任 我們靠主耶穌基督吩咐、勸戒這樣的人,要安靜做工,吃自己的飯。帖後 3:12; 傳10:18 Be responsible  Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living. 2 Thess 3:12; Eccl 10:18

 

  1. 在社會做好見證 又要立志作安靜人,辦自己的事,親手做工,正如我們從前所吩咐你們的,叫你們可以向外人行事端正,自己也就沒有甚麼缺乏了。帖前4:11,12 Good testimony in society So that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one. 1 Thess 4:11,12

 

  1. 幫助家人 人若不看顧親屬,就是背了真道,比不信的人還不好,不看顧自己家裡的人,更是如此。提前5:4-8 Help family But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.。1 Tim 5:4-8

 

  1. 幫助有需要的人  從前偷竊的,不要再偷;總要勞力,親手做正經事,就可有餘分給那缺少的人。弗4:28 Help needy  Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need. Eph 4:28

 

John Wesley’s three principles for a Christian’s finances: Make all you can, save all you can, give all you can.

衛斯理的基督徒經濟生活三大原則:盡量多賺錢,盡量多存錢,盡量多捐錢。
