Erwin Lutzer - mesaj catre slujitori


1. Rugaciunea este mai importanta decat predicarea
Trebuie sa-ti pazesti timpul de rugaciune, chiar mai mult decat timpul de studiu. Daca esti fortat sa alegi dintre cele doua, fa din rugaciune prioritate. Rugaciunea nu este pregatire pentru lucrare, este lucrarea! Daca viata ta de rugaciune este mediocra sau inconsecventa, trebuie sa-ti pui timp deoparte pentru rugaciune.
2. Predicarea este mai importanta decat administrarea
Foarte multi pastori petrec foarte mult timp in managementul bisericii, ramanand cu foarte putin timp pentru studiu si reflectie.Comitetele sunt necesare. Chiar si mai importanta este viziunea si abilitatea de a duce biserica in directia potrivita.Dar lucrarea cu Cuvantul are cel mai mare impact.
3.Familia este mai importanta decat congregatia
Exista , la pastori o puternica inclinatie de a fi preocupati de nevoile adunarii asa de mult ca uneori isi neglijeaza familia. Ispita de a ceda presiunilor externe si de a cauta sa implinesti toate asteptarile celorlati duc la neglijarea copiilor si sotiei. Timpul impreuna cu familia la o inghetata poate fi mai important decat cine stie ce intalnire si discutii financiare ale bisericii. Familia este mai importanta decat cei care-ti platesc salariu, indiferent de domeniul in care lucrezi.
4. Credinciosia este mai importanta decat competitia
Cand te compari cu altii este usor sa devii descurajat. Biruieste duhul de comparatie si bucura-te de succesele altor lucratori. Cand vei fi multumit cu partea ta de lucrare vei gasi implinire si satisfactie
5. Dragostea este mai importanta decat abilitatea
Clar, nu poti lucra fara darurile care te califica pentru slujire. Trebuie sa cunosti Cuvantul si sa fii capabil sa-l comunici. Si trebuie sa ai indemanari de lider si talent in a lucra cu oamenii.Dar apostolul Pavel ne atentioneaza ca toate darurile si indemanarile si abilitatile nu sunt nimic, daca sunt lipsite de dragoste. Chiar si cea mai buna invatatura biblica nu schimba vieti daca nu este filtrata printr-o personalitate umpluta de dragoste.

In 2005 am vizitat si Biserica Baptista Moody din Chicago unde am ascultat un mesaj de 4 July - Ziua Independentei Statelor Unite ale Americii- unde pastor senior este Erwin Lutzer. In limba romana puteti citi 4 carti foarte bune de catre acest autor crestin biblic, cunoaste foarte bine mediul si cultura in care traim.

Preda si la Moody Bible College si are emisiuni zilnice la radio.
Aici puteti descoperi cartile lui Erwin Lutzer
Mie personal mi-a placut mult "Cine esti tu ca sa judeci"? o chemare la discernamant spiritual.
Fiti binecuvantati toti robii Lui placuti.
Sa ne spuna Domnul fiecaruia dintre noi " Bine ai venit sluga buna si credincioasa , intra in Bucuriaaa Stapanului Tau".

ganduri despre credinta - Paul Washer


“The person who loves you most will tell you the most truth. One of the greatest distinguishing marks of a false prophet is that he will always tell you what you want to hear, he will never rain on your parade, he will get you clapping, he will get you jumping, he will make you dizzy, he will keep you entertained, and he will present a Christianity to you that will make your church look like a Six Flags over Jesus. And keep you so entertained you are never addressed with great issues such as these:

Is God working in my life?

Am I growing in holiness?

Have I truly been born again?”

“In modern day evangelism, this precious doctrine [of regeneration] has been reduced to nothing more than a human decision to raise one’s hand, walk an aisle, or pray a “sinner’s prayer.” As a result, the majority of Americans believe that they’ve been “born again” (i.e., regenerated) even though their thoughts, words, and deeds are a continual contradiction to the nature and will of God.”

- Paul Washer

“Here stands God on the day of creation. He looks at stars and He says “all you stars move yourself to this place and start in this order and move in a circle and move exactly as I tell you, until I give you another word. Planets-pick yourself up and whirl, make this formation at my command, until I give you another word. He looks at mountains and says “be lifted up” and they obey him. He tells valleys “be cast down” and they obey him. He looks at the sea and says “you will come this far”, and the sea obeys. Then, he looks at you and says “come” and you go “no! Does that bother anyone?”

“People tell me judge not lest ye be judged. I always tell them, twist not scripture lest ye be like satan.”

“The work is hindered. The glory of God is tarnished and it is because the people of God no longer know how to discern the things of God.”

“Ever wonder how the people of God could walk into the temple of God, could offer sacrifices to God could praise God, and then turn right around and find the biggest tree on the highest hill and worship any number of idols, and not be able to tell the difference, and not be able to recognize the wrong, in a mulplicity of gods? Well, I want you to know that is the church in America today. And because the greatest sin among the men of God today is the fear of men which is a snare, and the fear losing economic security and reputation in the denomination. “As the church runs headlong into judgment today the men of God instead of repenting and crying out and studying God’s word with all their passion are looking for models on how to keep lost people in their congregations and it’s wrong.”

(As American Christians) “We have forgotten how to blush”

“Most of you live your life on flimsy little songs, not upon the word of God.”

“We honor the old prophets, we honor the Tozer’s and Spurgen’s but we don’t want to pay the price they payed, and they payed the price by being men who walked alone who lived with God and who loved his word.

“What’s the will of God for my life? You don’t need to know the will of God in your life, you need to know the God of your life!”

“How could we have such a low view of the gospel of Jesus Christ that we have to manipulate men psychologically to get them to come down and pray a prayer? …How many times have I heard evangelists say, “It’ll only take five minutes.“? No my dear friend, it will take your life–all of it! “We’re just trying to attract people and then we’ll gradually bring them in further and further.” That is what the cults do, that’s not what Jesus did. Notice that in the gospels every time a great crowd is following Jesus, he turns around and says something so radical to them that most of them walk away. Of course Jesus probably would not get invited to teach evangelism [in most churches today].”
