5 ganduri despre cartea Estera

În imagine este sulul cărţii Estera (ebraică) ce are ilustraţii pe margini, şi este redactat undeva în Italia prin sec XVIII

1. Regii gurvernează peste naţiuni, dar peste regi guvernează Dumnezeu

2. Slujirea non-vocaţională e importantă

3. Femeile au o varietate de roluri importante în Împărăţia lui Dumnezeu

4. Dumnezeu nu oboseşte în a purta de grijă poporului Său

5. În cele din urmă Dumnezeu câştigă şi poporul Lui se bucură

Iată parte din articolul în engleză.

1. KINGS RULE OVER NATIONS, BUT GOD RULES OVER ALL

In the book of Esther we see the Persian Empire (the largest nation in the world), we see King Xerxes (the most powerful man in the world), and we see that the Lord is supreme over both.

God is not even mentioned in the story of Esther, but his invisible hand of providence is clearly at work in the lives of the characters, as it is in our lives and countries today.

2. NON-VOCATIONAL MINISTRY IS IMPORTANT

One of the great myths in the church is that those in vocational ministry are used by God in a greater way than the average Christian. This is rarely the truth. All of God’s people are called to do ministry in the place where God has appointed them to be.

Esther was not a prophetess, and Mordecai was not a priest. Neither one was in vocational ministry; they were in politics. Maybe you need to go to business school, or medical school, or law school instead of Bible school. We need teachers, attorneys, moms, dads, mechanics, and entrepreneurs who love Jesus. Mordecai and Esther used their stations to glorify God and to bless others.

3. WOMEN PLAY A VARIETY OF IMPORTANT ROLES IN GOD’S KINGDOM

God used Esther in a mighty, magnificent way. And unlike many other female characters in the Bible (Sarah, Ruth, Mary), her contribution had nothing to do with motherhood.

Motherhood is a calling, an honor, and an important ministry. But Esther is not a mother. She doesn’t even have a great marriage. Is it possible to be a single woman, a divorced woman, or a woman who comes from difficult circumstances, and be used by the Lord in a significant way? Absolutely. That may seem obvious, but I hope it’s an encouragement to those who struggle with idolizing marriage and motherhood.

Esther’s husband never converts. We never see her holding a baby. But we do see her walking with God and accomplishing much good. Her life is a great encouragement for us all, but particularly for our sisters in Christ.

4. GOD IS RELENTLESSLY COMMITTED TO CARING FOR HIS PEOPLE

God loves. He keeps pursuing. He keeps saving. And he keeps investing. The book of Esther portrays an obscure period in the history of God’s people. And yet it is not obscure to God: he is there, he is active, and he protects them from destruction.

5. IN THE END, GOD WINS AND HIS PEOPLE REJOICE

In the middle of the story, things look pretty bad. The king is horrible, the villain is winning, and every single one of God’s people receives a death sentence. By the end of the book, however, the tables have totally turned and the closing scene is a celebration.

So it is with our story today. The movie isn’t over yet, so don’t throw your popcorn on the ground, yell at the screen, and stomp out of the theater. At the end of this life, at the end of human history, God wins and we’ll rejoice. Things will get pretty bleak in the meantime, but it gets better. We have great hope and a reason to keep going. God came for his people in Esther, and he will come for his people again.

BRUTAL ŞI EXPLOZIV…SAU RESPECTUOS? de Rick Boxx

Timişoara Evanghelică

mana d e luni

Se pare că astăzi comportamentul brutal şi lipsit de respect este o epidemie la locul de muncă. Cu toate acestea, de cele mai multe ori, un astfel de comportament nu este penalizat, ba chiar uneori este recompensat!

Potrivit unui studiu publicat în Wall Street Journal, angajatorii oferă salarii mai mari angajaţilor brutali şi lipsiţi de respect. Studiul remarcă faptul că astfel de angajaţi au venituri mai mari cu 18% decât ceilalţi colegi. Acum, gândiţivă la faptul că asta se traduce prin investirea în taxe, training, salarii şi timp considerabil în oameni ce explodează permanent, ţipă şi jignesc trântind uşa după ei.

În ciuda unui potenţial destructiv pe care astfel de persoane îl au, unii executivi permit să fie manipulaţi de atitudinea intimidatoare şi copleşitoare a unor angajaţi de acest fel. Care este costul unei astfel de atitudini? Angajaţii brutali şi explozivi, potrivit unui alt studiu, pot atrage totodată costuri…

Abstract
How much do we learn about God and about forgiveness when we are dealing with betrayal, infidelity and sin in the Body of Christ? This article argues that the forgiveness that God offers when confession derives from real self-knowledge is properly regarded as healing. And that healing is the restoration of balance in that sense that it will enable the minister to receive forgiveness and to begin a new phase of his spiritual journey, teaching the people about real forgiveness and sharing with them the painful journey of forgiveness.
Keywords: God, forgiveness, Church, ministry
