22-33節--基督徒家庭

以弗所書 第5章

你認為你的家可稱為「基督徒家庭」嗎?你的答案若然是肯定的話,那麼,依保羅的看法,你的家應該是一個與別不同的家。基督徒的家庭應該在世人面前,展示出一幅基督如何與教會有著和諧關係的美麗圖畫。

保羅在這段經文教導作妻子的要順服丈夫,就正如教會順服基督一樣。做丈夫的,也當愛妻子,像基督愛教會一樣。在接著的下一章,保羅將談及父母與兒女間的關係。

保羅要求做丈夫的承擔更重的責任。丈夫在家中也許是頭,但在他之上卻有基督。丈夫要愛妻子,以致妻子樂意回應他的愛,就正如教會樂意回應基督的期望一樣。請記著,基督愛教會,並非是要教會去服侍祂,反之,祂卻是要去服侍教會。

基督的愛是捨己的愛,是使人成聖的愛和滿足人心的愛。愛驅使基督去保養顧惜教會,這意味著基督會供應教會的一切需要,和竭盡所能地愛護她。丈夫們,你們也是這樣愛妻子的嗎?

做妻子的,要負責營造家庭的氣氛。一些家庭的重大決定,最終可能由丈夫去作決定;可是,如何去執行這些決定,妻子卻是關鍵人物。她若是以一種對抗或消極的態度去回應,家庭的合一便遭到破壞;反之,她若以尊重與合作的態度去回應,便能促進家人之間的互愛。

願我們都為自己的家庭向主祈求:「主啊,幫助我們竭盡所能地愛護家庭,使它在各方面都能成為一個真正的基督徒家庭。幫助我們懂得彼此相愛,像你愛我們和我們學習愛你一樣。」

CHRISTIAN FAMILIES

Would you call your home a Christian home? If so, Paul says your home ought to be different. Our homes should show to the world around, a living picture of the relationship between Christ and his Church.

Do you notice what Paul wrote? Wives should be willing to obey their husbands in the same way that the Church obeys Christ. Husbands should love their wives in the same way Christ loved the Church. In the next chapter he deals with parents and children.

Paul puts the greater responsibility on the husbands. The husband may be the head of the family, but he has someone over him – Christ. The husband’s love for his wife should be such that his wife will gladly respond to it just as the Church should respond to the wishes of Christ. Remember, ‘Christ loved the Church not that the Church might do things for him but that he might do things for the Church’.

Christ’s love is sacrifice, sanctifying and satisfying. Christ nourishes the Church and cherishes it. To nourish is to provide everything necessary. To cherish is to do anything extra that we can do. Husband, is that how you treat your wife?

Wives are responsible for the atmosphere of the home. They may not be responsible for the final decisions in the family. But they must see that those decisions are carried out, not in a rebellious spirit but with willingness and in a loving atmosphere of family unity.

Here is a prayer for your home and family: ‘Lord help us to make our home a truly Christian home in every way. Help us to love each other even as we love you and you love us.’
