ネガティブな環境(職場)で忠実にいる方法 1/3 How to be faithful in a negative environment (workplace) 1/3




This week I’m committed to update my blog more!

I’m going to share the message that Luke shared before because it was such a great message!

How to be faithful in a negative environment (workplace) 




“negative workplace” isn’t about a workplace that is doing illegal things. If you are in such workplace, just quit! 

There is no negative workplace, really.  Usually we have a few negative people like difficult boss, co-worker so this message is about how to deal with it. How to keep a good attitude around those people. In the Bible, Jesus says this:



Matthew 5:14-16
You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.






The Bible uses a picture of a light.

We are to be a light to people.

Some people light up the room when they come in. But there are some people who light up the room when they walk out!  When they leave that’s when the party starts.

We want to be the kind of people that light up the room when we walk in. Jesus says, let’s shine the light!

So here are some few key points.


1. たとえ短い間だったとしても、神様は今いる場所にあなたをおいた。だから光を照らそう!
God has placed where you are at even if it’s for a short time so shine your light!

神様をほめたたえましょう。 神様を信じて従う人は、口で言い表わせないほどの祝福を受けます。 心から、神様のおっしゃるとおりにする人はしあわせです。
正しい人は息子にまで祝福が受け継がれます。 その子らは至る所で尊敬を集めます。 
彼はあわれみ深く、親切です。  公平な取り引きをするので、万事がうまく運びます。

Psalm 112
Praise the Lord.
Blessed are those who fear the Lord,
who find great delight in his commands.
 Their children will be mighty in the land;
the generation of the upright will be blessed.
 Wealth and riches are in their houses,
and their righteousness endures forever.
 Even in darkness light dawns for the upright,
for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous.

これは神様からの最高の約束! 神様を信じて従う人は祝福した人生を歩める!



This is a great promise that those who follow God will live a blessed life!

It’s not somebody else’s decision that determines your life. It’s your decision.

So when we blame others about our situation, we give al the power for them to make decision for us. Ultimately, it’s what we do and what we decide that determines the outcome of your life.






And the light work the best in a dark place.

Lots of people have no problem feeling passionate in church because the church is already bright! It’s full of people shining light.

But we need more light in a negative place because that has the most power.

Jesus says, get out into the darkness and shine your light!





Light is about what you see. People see the way you respond when you go through a difficult time. 

They see what you say when the boss turns his back, when others start gossiping. They are watching you. So shine your light! 

Don’t go to work and do the least possible and ask your boss to give you Sundays off. But if you got an amazing attitude and be a fantastic worker, then it will sound like a good request!
