アメリカに似ている表現があります。「Sunday driver」と言う言葉です。“日曜日”だけ車を運転する人です。この「Sunday driver」の特徴は二つあります。まず、不注意な運転をする人です。例えば、曲がる時ウインカーを出さない。また、制限速度よりも遅く走行して他の運転手に迷惑をかける人です。



キリストが言われた事は「日曜日だけ、わたしついてきなさい」 ではなく 「だれでもわたしについて来たいと思うなら、自分を捨て、日々自分の十字架を負い、そしてわたしについて来なさい。」でした。 (ルカの福音書9:23)



You have heard the expression “Nichiyou daiku” (Sunday carpenter), haven’t you? Of course, a Sunday carpenter is someone who does carpentry only on the weekend.

In America, we have a similar expression – “Sunday driver.” A Sunday driver is a person who drives only on Sunday. There are two characteristics of Sunday drivers. First, they drive carelessly. For example, when they turn, they do not turn on the turn signal. Also, they drive much slower than the speed limit and irritate other drivers.

In addition to Sunday carpenters and Sunday drivers, there are also Sunday Christians. On Sunday they come to church and sing, read the Bible, pray, and serve the Lord with everyone, but from Monday through Saturday, they do not do any of these things. To avoid being a Sunday Christian, let’s do the following things daily:

1.Like David, let’s pray daily.
Lord, I have called daily upon You. (Psalm 88:9)

2.Like the believers in Berea, let’s read the Bible daily.
They received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.
(Acts 17:11)

3.Like the believers in Jerusalem, let’s be the Lord’s witnesses daily.
And daily in the temple, and in every house, they did not cease teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ. (Acts 5:42)

Christ did not say,
If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross only on Sunday, and follow Me. He said, If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. (Luke 9:23)
