October 7 Sermon: A Pastor

Oct 07, 2018   •     •   1 Timothy 3: 1-5

Scripture 讀經:1 Timothy 提摩太前書3: 1-5

1 Timothy 3:1-5 – English Standard Version (ESV)

1 The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task. Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church?

提摩太前書 3 Chinese Union Version Modern Punctuation (Traditional) (CUVMPT)

1 「人若想要得監督的職分,就是羨慕善工。」這話是可信的。 做監督的,必須無可指責,只做一個婦人的丈夫,有節制,自守,端正,樂意接待遠人,善於教導; 不因酒滋事,不打人,只要溫和,不爭競,不貪財; 好好管理自己的家,使兒女凡事端莊、順服。 人若不知道管理自己的家,焉能照管神的教會呢?

Quotes:

The pastor’s responsibility is to keep the community attentive to God.

Eugene H. Peterson

 

Three pastoral acts are so basic, so critical, that they determine the shape of everything else. The acts are praying, reading Scripture, and giving spiritual direction. Since almost never does anyone notice whether we do these things or not, and only occasionally does someone ask that we do them, these three acts of ministry suffer widespread neglect.

Eugene H. Peterson

 

There is a saying among physicians that the doctor who is his own doctor has a fool for a doctor. In the same manner, a pastor needs to have mentors in his or her life who will speak the truth, ask questions, push and challenge us to walk with God in integrity. A Pastor should cultivate these relationships. It is a matter of survival and spiritual fitness.

結論

 

 

 

引言:

牧者有責任使上帝成為社區的關注點。

Eugene H. Peterson

 

牧者的三個行為:禱告、讀經和指導會眾的屬靈方向都是很基礎和關鍵的,決定着牧者行為的其它方面。因為很少有人注意到我們是否遵照了這樣的方式,只是偶然間有人提及這個話題,因此牧者的這三項基本行為被廣泛地忽略了。

Eugene H. Peterson

 

在醫生之間有種說法:對醫生而言,自己作自己的醫生是愚蠢的。同樣的方式,牧者需要自己生活中的導師,擔任導師的人應該講述事實真相、提問,促使牧者全然與神同行。一個牧者要有意培養和加深這些方面的關係。這些需要事關成為牧者的基本條件和屬靈生命的適應與成長。
