門徒訓練根本 Discipleship Essentials~ Your Role In The Family 你的角色在家庭中

實際上在我們的人際關係中我們要怎麼跟隨耶穌?
What does it mean to practically follow Jesus in our relationships?

孩子對父母
Children to Parents

在主裡服從你的父母。當你父母跟從主你要尊重他們,但當他們的指示與主的命令和原則相矛盾時,不要服從他們。
Obey your parents in the Lord. Honor your parents in as much as they follow the Lord, but do not obey them when their instruction contradicts the Lord's commands and principles.

父親對兒童
Fathers to Children

訓練並指導你的孩子在主裡面。允許主的意志塑造他們,而非把自己的想法硬性加諸在他們的身上。
Discipline and instruct your children in the Lord. Do not provoke them to anger by pushing your own will on them instead of allowing the Lord's will to shape them.

丈夫妻子
Husbands to Wives

愛你的妻子彷彿是你自己的身體,愛她如同基督愛教會並為我們而死一樣。滋養和珍惜你的妻子,使她成為神聖而無瑕疵的人,獻給基督。努力的來理解你的妻子並向她表示榮譽至於保護她作為你生命恩典的繼承人。
Love your wife as your own body in the same degree that Christ loved the church and died for us. Nourish and cherish your wife as to make her holy and without blemish to be presented to Christ. Seek to understand your wife and show honor to her as to protect her as your fellow heir of the grace of life.

妻子丈夫
Wives to Husbands

順服所愛妳的丈夫在主裡面,因為他愛你作為他自己的身體。不要服從違背上帝明確的旨意和原則的任何事。用純粹的行為尊重你的丈夫,你甚至可以在不說一句話的情況下贏得你丈夫進入真理。
Submit to your loving husband as he loves you as his own body only as is fitting in the Lord. Do not submit to anything that goes against the clear will and principles of God. Be respectful with pure conduct that you may win your husbands to the truth without even speaking a word.

親戚親戚
Relatives to Relatives

提供彼此的需求。人若不看顧自己的人,尤其不看顧自己一家的人,就是背棄信仰,比不信的人還壞。
Provide for each others needs. Anyone who does not provide for his relatives, especially his own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

基督徒每個人
Christians to Everyone

如果您有任何機會,請用它來為每個人做好事,特別是對您的基督徒兄弟姐妹。不要因為做好事而感到厭倦,而是堅持不懈,這樣你將獲得賞賜。
As you have any opportunity, use it to do good for everyone, and especially so with your Christian brothers and sisters. Do not grow weary in doing good, but persevere and you will receive a reward for your labor.

基督徒對屬靈的領袖
Christians to Spiritual Leaders

為你的領袖禱告,這樣他們就會以清醒的良心行事。遵守他們在主裡的指示並高興地順服他們,因為他們正在監視你的靈魂。
Pray for your leaders so they will act honorably with a clear conscience. Obey their instructions in the Lord and submit to them with joy because they are keeping watch over your souls.

基督徒對上帝
Christians to God

在所有這些關係中,都有一張王牌。只要在主裡面,你就要遵循,服務和服從。我們的首要責任始終是上帝。按照祂的誡命愛上帝。通過愛人來遵守祂的誡命。通過愛別人我們愛上帝,反之亦然。這是耶穌對我們的命令。如同耶穌愛我們,我們一樣愛我們的兄弟。
In all these relationships, there is a trump card. You follow, serve, and obey as long as it is in the Lord. Our first and primary duty is always to God. Love God by following his commandments. Follow his commandments by loving people. We love God by loving others and vice versa. This is Jesus command to us. That we love our brother as Jesus loved us.

如果你想建立一個層次結構,那麼這將是基本原則:
If you want to make a hierarchy, then this would be the basic principle:

上帝永遠是第一位的。
God is always first.

我們首先尋求上帝的國度和他的正義,以便將其他一切添加到我們身上。我們唯一敬拜的就是上帝並我們要喜悅上帝超越所有其他人。
Jesus said you have to hate everyone else by comparison to be his disciple. We seek first God's kingdom and his righteousness for everything else to be added to us. We only worship God and seek to please him before all others.

愛你的家庭(包括你的生理以及你的屬靈家庭)與愛神密切相關。
Loving your family (which includes your biological as well as your spiritual family) is intimately connected to loving God.

如果你對生理家庭中不信主的人和跟隨你的屬靈家庭有分歧,那麼你要先愛你的屬靈家庭。
If you have a disagreement between following unbelieving members of your biological family and following your spiritual family, then your spiritual family comes first.

一個例子是參加跟服侍一個教會特會或參加家庭聚會。在這種罕見的情況下,你應該為你的屬靈家庭服侍。
An example would be whether to attend and serve in a conference or attend a family party. In these rare circumstances, you should serve your spiritual family.

甚至耶穌也將他的屬靈家庭置於他的母親和兄弟之上,耶穌說他真正的母親,兄弟和姐妹是那些聽到上帝的話語並服從它的人。
Even Jesus put his spiritual family above his mother and brothers, saying his true mother and brother and sister are those who hear the word of God and obey.

我們在這裡可以看到,我們的屬靈家庭被提升到與我們的生物家庭相同的水平。
We can see here that our spiritual family is elevated to the same level as our biological family.

然而,在大多數情況下,你可以同時愛你的生理和屬靈家庭。
In most cases, however, you can simultaneously love both your biological and spiritual family together.

你的家人一起執行任務,尋求陌生人和有需要的人(包括身體和屬靈需求)的福祉。
Your family, on mission together, seeks the well-being of strangers and those in need (including physical and spiritual needs).

在所有這些關係中,我們總是把別人的需求放在我們自己的需要之前。我們不尋求獲得自己的生命,而我們願意為了神的國而失去自己的生命。上帝看到我們並豐富地提供我們的繼承和獎勵。
In all these relationships, we always put the needs of others before our own needs. We do not seek to gain our own life, but we are willing to lose it for the sake of the kingdom. It is God who sees us and provides richly our inheritance and rewards.

永遠榮耀歸於上帝!
Glory be to God forever!

阿門。
Amen.
