Sermon Notes信息: True Servanthood僕人的職分

I. God Calls Us to Serve Him 神呼召我們服侍祂

– 1 Samuel 撒上9:2  And he had a son whose name was Saul, a handsome young man. There was not a man among the people of Israel more handsome than he. From his shoulders upward he was taller than any of the people.  他有一個兒子,名叫掃羅,又健壯,又俊美,在以色列人中沒有一個能比他的,身體比眾民高過一頭。


– 1 Samuel撒上13:14  But now your kingdom shall not continue. The Lord has sought out a man after his own heart, and the Lord has commanded him to be prince over his people, because you have not kept what the Lord commanded you.”  現在你的王位必不長久。耶和華已經尋著一個合他心意的人,立他做百姓的君,因為你沒有遵守耶和華所吩咐你的。」 1


– 1 Samuel撒上16:6-7  When they came, he looked on Eliab and thought, “Surely the Lord’s anointed is before him.” But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”  他們來的時候,撒母耳看見以利押,就心裡說:「耶和華的受膏者必定在他面前。」 耶和華卻對撒母耳說:「不要看他的外貌和他身材高大,我不揀選他。因為耶和華不像人看人,人是看外貌,耶和華是看內心。」


– Psalm 詩51:1-2   1 Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions.  Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,  and cleanse me from my sin!  神啊,求你按你的慈愛憐恤我,按你豐盛的慈悲塗抹我的過犯!求你將我的罪孽洗除淨盡,並潔除我的罪!


II. God Calls Us to Serve Others神呼召我們服侍人

– Mark 可10:45  For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”   因為人子來並不是要受人的服侍,乃是要服侍人,並且要捨命做多人的贖價。」


– John 約13 – “If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet… Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than His master.”   你們的主、你們的夫子,尚且洗你們的腳,你們也當彼此洗腳。            我實實在在地告訴你們:僕人不能大於主人,差人也不能大於差他的人。


– Expectation預料中: Do you only serve when you expect something in return? Do you serve expecting to receive in return? 有回報才服侍嗎?你的服侍期盼回報嗎?


– Favoritism最想服侍的: Do you only serve people who are easy for you to serve? Do you serve only when it is comfortable or convenient for you?  只想服侍容易服侍的人嗎?只在你感覺良好,合適你的時間、場合才服侍嗎?
