Posted in Teaching by Be example on Maret 9, 2008

2 Pet 1:5-8 (NKJV)
5 But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, 6 to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, 7 to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. 8 For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ

2 Pet 1:5 – 8 (ITB)
Justru karena itu kamu harus dengan sungguh-sungguh berusaha untuk menambahkan kepada imanmu KEBAJIKAN, dan kepada kebajikan pengetahuan, dan kepada pengetahuan penguasaan diri, kepada penguasaan diri ketekunan, dan kepada ketekunan kesalehan, dan kepada kesalehan kasih akan saudara-saudara, dan kepada kasih akan saudara-saudara kasih akan semua orang. Sebab apabila semuanya itu ada padamu dengan berlimpah-limpah, kamu akan dibuatnya menjadi giat dan berhasil dalam pengenalanmu akan Yesus Kristus, Tuhan kita.

Ayat 5:
 Diligence > to become successful person
 Untuk mjd pria wanita sejati dihadapan Tuhan butuh kerajinan.
 You have to be serious with life & God, kalau mau berhasil.
 Harus menyerahkan seluruh hati, jiwa, pikiran, hidup kepada Tuhan.
 Kehidupan kristen bicara ttg kehidupan yg penuh komitmen yg total. Komitmen tidak akan menghancurkan kehidupan kita tapi justru menjadikan kita a better person & a person of destiny.

 Justru karena itu kamu harus dengan sungguh-sungguh berusaha untuk menambahkan kepada imanmu…
 Jadi memulai kehidupan kekristanan kita dgn iman, tanpa iman kita tdk bisa menyenangkan hati Tuhan.
 Tapi percaya aja bukan akhirnya, tapi hanyalah menjadi dasarnya saja.

1. Kebajikan
2. Pengetahuan
3. Penguasaan diri Hidup yg berkelimpahan,
IMAN
4. Ketekunan produktif, maksimal,
5. Kesalehan berhasil.
6. Kasih akan saudara-saudara
7. Kasih akan semua orang

Rev Kong Hee’s definition, to be a person of excellent means:
1. To be superior in quality

 Not just doing a job but finishing a job & do it well
 Not just selling a product, but meeting customer needs, adding value to client’s objective
2. To be greater in quantity
 Living to the fullest of life, highly optimize, maximum productive to God.
 Pro 18:9 Orang yang bermalas-malas dalam pekerjaannya sudah menjadi saudara dari si perusak.
 You have to be the best !!!
3. To transient your job description
 Doing the extra miles !!!
 Lakukan yg lebih dari diminta
 U have to be promoted from glory to glory
 I’m not here selling my time my energy my soul just to earn a salary, I’m here to make a big different to people’s life, my world is going to be a better place, because I’m here to offer u a better service, because God is going to use me & to work with me to bless other people.
4. To out do yourself everytime
 To win against yourself
 Your biggest competitor & enemy is you, yourself.
 Kita harus selalu mencari kesempatan utk menaklukan diri kita setiap saat.

Deu 4:5 Ingatlah, aku telah mengajarkan ketetapan dan peraturan kepadamu, seperti yang diperintahkan kepadaku oleh TUHAN, Allahku, supaya kamu melakukan yang demikian di dalam negeri, yang akan kamu masuki untuk mendudukinya.

>> Musa berusaha memperkenalkan kpd Israel bagaimana caranya menghidupi firman Tuhan

Deu 4:6 Lakukanlah itu dengan setia, sebab itulah yang akan menjadi kebijaksanaanmu dan akal budimu di mata bangsa-bangsa yang pada waktu mendengar segala ketetapan ini akan berkata: Memang bangsa yang besar ini adalah umat yang bijaksana dan berakal budi.

Deu 4:7 Sebab bangsa besar manakah yang mempunyai allah yang demikian dekat kepadanya seperti TUHAN, Allah kita, setiap kali kita memanggil kepada-Nya?

>> Sebab kl kita menghidupi Firman, prinsip & nilai2, bukan hanyan hidup kita yang diberkati, kita juga akan bersinar terang utk org2 disekeliling kita.

Deu 4:6 Lakukanlah itu dengan setia, sebab itulah yang akan menjadi kebijaksanaanmu dan akal budimu di mata bangsa-bangsa yang pada waktu mendengar segala ketetapan ini akan berkata: Memang bangsa yang besar ini adalah umat yang bijaksana dan berakal budi.

>> Jadi dunia mau lihat kebenaran firman Tuhan dihidupi dlm kehidupan kita sehari hari, bukan aktifitas religius kita.
Dgn memiliki spirit of excellence, kita lagi bersaksi luar biasa kpd dunia bahwa kita beda.

Tuhan layak dapat yg terbaik dari hidup kita, krn kita tdk sekedar main game, kita sedang melakukan sesuatu yg akan kekal selama2nya.
“…To be the best in everything, for the Glory of God.” because He deserves our best.
(Read Deu 5:6)

>> Utk jadi kesaksian yg luarbisa bagi Tuhan, butuh spirit excellence.

Gal 6:4 But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
>> When you are excelling yourself…..you have to prove your work yourself, you may proud of it by yourself alone, as long as not comparing to other people, as long as not competitive, feel insecure, easily envy & jealous.

1Kings10 > crt Ratu Syeba, dia adalah pengkritik Raja Salomo yg sangat sinis, dia tidak suka dgn Tuhan, dia sangat kritikal terhadap Baik Allah yang Salomo buat. Lalu dia mengunjungi Bait Allah, dan dia terpukau. Dalam 24 jam kehidupannya berubah. Bukan karena sesuatu yang rohani, tapi karena dia lihat arsitektur Baik Allah yg sangat bagus, kualitas makanan yang disediakan, bgmn pelayan melayani, bgmn disiplinnya mereka, bgmn sopannya pelayan2 itu, cara mereka berpakaian , semuanya rapih, dan waktu Ratu Syeba melihat pintu utama waktu Raja Salomo masuk dan keluar, dia pingsan, dan sangat kagum karena excellency Bait Allah, dan segera dia percaya dgn Tuhan. Dan dia langsung jatuh cinta dengan Raja Salomo, dan menjadi istri Salomo, semua terjadi dlm 24 jam. Semua karena spirit of excellence.

Excellent works horizontally & vertically.

I. HORIZONTALLY (Hub kita dengan orang lain)
Dan6 : 3, Daniel melayani sgb penasehat Raja. Lalu Daniel dipromosikan krn dia punya spirit of excellence. Dia hanya anak muda, tapi Raja angkat dia jadi PM.
Bgmn Daniel membuktikan dirinya…

Daniel became a King because He is:
a. Daniel tidak bercela > physically healthy (Dan1:4, 8, 12-15)

b. good-looking, a person of excellence groom his-self (Dan1:4)

c. Daniel have knowledge (having the right information) & understanding (making the right analysis based on the right info), wisdom (the ability making decision based on the right info & right analysis). Doing the right thing in the right time.
Having ability to plan, organize,
“The person who can not organize in life will always be a person to be organized to the person who can.”
(Dan 5:11) There is a man in your kingdom in whom is the Spirit of the Holy God. And in the days of your father, light and understanding and wisdom, like the wisdom of the gods, were found in him; and King Nebuchadnezzar your father—your father the king—made him chief of the magicians, astrologers, Chaldeans, and soothsayers.

d. Daniel itu, well-informed/knowledge. Bukan harus pintar, baca yg byk, punya persedianan pengetahuan
(Dan5:12)12 Forasmuch as an excellent spirit, and knowledge, and understanding, interpreting of dreams, and shewing of hard sentences, and dissolving of doubts, were found in the same Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar: now let Daniel be called, and he will shew the interpretation.

e. Daniel itu quick to understand, good alert/tajam, & penuh insisatif. initiative / problem-solver oriented. Power & energy to solve a problem. When u come a cross a problem, r u part of the prob or part of the solution. Jesus said we are an overcomer, overcomer = problem solver !!!
(Dan1:4 NKJV) Young men in whom there was no blemish, but good-looking, gifted in all wisdom, possessing knowledge and quick to understand, who had ability to serve in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the language and literature of the Chaldeans.

f. Daniel have ability of serving. Have a heart of serving others.
(Dan1:4 NKJV) Young men in whom there was no blemish, but good-looking, gifted in all wisdom, possessing knowledge and quick to understand, who had ability to serve in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the language and literature of the Chaldeans.
(Dan5:17) Kemudian Daniel menjawab raja: “Tahanlah hadiah tuanku, berikanlah pemberian tuanku kepada orang lain! Namun demikian, aku akan membaca tulisan itu bagi raja dan memberitahukan maknanya kepada tuanku.

g. “He learn the language Babylonians” > good comm skill, ability to connect heart-to-heart with the a very less time.
(Dan1:4 NKJV) Young men in whom there was no blemish, but good-looking, gifted in all wisdom, possessing knowledge and quick to understand, who had ability to serve in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the language and literature of the Chaldeans.

(Dan1:4 NIV) Young men without any physical defect, handsome, showing aptitude for every kind of learning, well informed, quick to understand, and qualified to serve in the king’s palace. He was to teach them the language and literature of the Babylonians.

II. VERTICALLY (Hub kita dengan Tuhan)
Eq.
• Daniel was excellent in spirit !!! bkn sgl sst yg diluar, tapi yg dari dalamnya yg excellent. Kehidupan bicara lebih dari pekerjaan & karir, tapi semua itu gak jamin kebhagian. Baik jadi kaya & dll, tapi ssorg yg execelent kita juga harus beautiful inside.
• King Abimelekh making eyes on Sara, when Sara was 90 years old !!! imagine, how attractive she was inside !!! (Heb 11:11 By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.) Sara adl sorg perempuan yg excellent in faith.

Dan 6: 3 Daniel was excellent in spirit
Excellent spirit = a stand of heart = attitude.
Attitude determine your altitude (tingkat kehidupan).
Attitude : Core of your heart, the real you. If your attitude is good, your whole life will be good.
No one can change your attitude, not even God. It has to do with your freewill.
Eq. Waktu Lucifer memberontak thd Tuhan, Tuhan tidak bisa mengubahnya.
Wahtu Yudas mengkhiati Yesus, Yesus juga tidak bisa mengubah.

What kind of excellence yg hrs kita miliki:
1. Be spiritual
(Dan 5:11) There is a man in your kingdom in whom is the Spirit of the Holy God. And in the days of your father, light and understanding and wisdom, like the wisdom of the gods, were found in him; and King Nebuchadnezzar your father—your father the king—made him chief of the magicians, astrologers, Chaldeans, and soothsayers.

Daniel penuh iman & roh Tuhan. Tidak ada yg bisa memaksa kita utk berjalan sama Tuhan, itu keputusa kita sdr. Jangan kita jadikan Tuhan cuma sebagai juru selamat saja…juru selamat pekerjaan kita, kebahagian, kesehatan, dll. Tapi jadikan Tuhan sbg Tuhan kita, tidak hanya juru selamat.

2. Be humble.
Tdk ada seorg pun yg bisa membuat kita humble, Jesus blg kita hrs blj utk humble. Blj utk jadi pelayan utk semua.
Psa 22:26 (22-27) Orang yang rendah hati akan makan dan kenyang, orang yang mencari TUHAN akan memuji-muji Dia; biarlah hatimu hidup untuk selamanya!
Psa 25:9 Ia membimbing orang-orang yang rendah hati menurut hukum, dan Ia mengajarkan jalan-Nya kepada orang-orang yang rendah hati.
Psa 37:11 Tetapi orang-orang yang rendah hati akan mewarisi negeri dan bergembira karena kesejahteraan yang berlimpah-limpah.
Psa 149:4 Sebab TUHAN berkenan kepada umat-Nya, Ia memahkotai orang-orang yang rendah hati dengan keselamatan.
Pro 15:33 Takut akan TUHAN adalah didikan yang mendatangkan hikmat, dan kerendahan hati mendahului kehormatan.
Pro 18:12 Tinggi hati mendahului kehancuran, tetapi kerendahan hati mendahului kehormatan.
Pro 22:4 Ganjaran kerendahan hati dan takut akan TUHAN adalah kekayaan, kehormatan dan kehidupan

3. BE WILLING
Tidak ada seorangpun juga yg bisa maksa kita untuk rela !!!
The most important !!! u may obey/loyal/submit but if u dont do it willingly, it’s nonsense !!!!
Isa 1:19 If you be willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land:
kl kita gak rela, Tuhan gak bisa berkati kita. If u are willing, nothing is possible.
Daud cuma gembala kecil, tapi jadi great general , great king, great musician & composer, great fund raiser, great architect…
(Dan5:17) Kemudian Daniel menjawab raja: “Tahanlah hadiah tuanku, berikanlah pemberian tuanku kepada orang lain! Namun demikian, aku akan membaca tulisan itu bagi raja dan memberitahukan maknanya kepada tuanku.

4. Be positive
Selalu senang & positif di dlm sgl hal dari dlm hidup kita.
Ibr11:4 (NKJV) By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks.
Christian should be the happiest person around. Karena lebih besar Dia yg ada dlm hidup kita, drpd masalah kita. Problem = opportunity to prove the power of God.

5. Be a loving person
1Chor13:13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
The most excellent thing is love. Love God & people, love the house of God.
Bible said, House of God = Gate of Heaven = altar (tempat kita mempersembahkan persembahan yg hidup) = House of dreams & vision…..everytime we come, dreams shall be released !!!!

Summary…
To be a person of Excellent is a decision. You are naturally created with a freewill, none of this God can change. Now you already gain the KNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTAND it……may you get WISDOM by it !!!!
