當我說我是基督徒

When I say…”I am a Christian” 當我說我是基督徒時
I’m not shouting “I am saved”
我並不是在叫喊著 “我是得救的”
I’m whispering “I’ve got lost!”
而是在低聲的說我曾經迷失過
“That is why I chose this way.
” “所以我選擇了這條路”
以賽亞書
53 6 我們都如羊走迷,各人偏行己路‧耶和華使我們眾人的罪孽都歸在他身上
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

When I say…”I am a Christian” 當我說我是基督徒時
I don’t speak of this with pride.
並不是因為我覺得比你高一等
I’m confessing that I stumble
而是承認我一直在蹣跚而行
and need someone to be my guide.
所以我需要一位生命中的嚮導
彼得前書
2 25 你們從前好像迷路的羊‧如今卻歸到你們靈魂的牧人監督了
For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

When I say…”I am a Christian” 當我說我是基督徒時
I’m not trying to be strong.
我並不是在顯示自己很強壯
I’m professing that I’m weak
而是在承認自己的軟弱
and pray for strength to carry on.
並陡鎸で罄^續前進的力量
哥林多後書
12 9 他對我說,我的恩典夠你用的‧因為我的能力,是在人的軟弱上顯得完全‧所以我更喜歡誇自己的軟弱,好叫基督的能力覆庇我

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

When I say…”I am a Christian” 當我說我是基督徒時
I’m not bragging of success.
我並不是在吹噓我的成功
I’m admitting I have failed
而是承認自己的失敗
and cannot ever pay the debt.
並且沒有能力償還所背負的債
羅馬書
8 3 律法既因肉體軟弱,有所不能行的,神就差遣自己的兒子,成為罪身的形狀,作了贖罪祭,在肉體中定了罪案
For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

When I say…”I am a Christian” 當我說我是基督徒時
I’m not claiming to be perfect,
我並不是在自我宣稱我是完美的
my flaws are too visible
而是讓你看到我生命中的瑕疵是這麼的明顯
but God believes I’m worth it.
但神相信我是有價值的
以賽亞書
1 18 耶和華說,你們來,我們彼此辯論‧你們的罪雖像硃紅,必變成雪白雖紅如丹顏,必白如羊毛
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

When I say…”I am a Christian” 當我說我是基督徒時
I still feel the sting of pain
我還是會感到痛如針刺般
I have my share of heartaches
但我有神來分擔我的心痛
which is why I seek His name.
所以我會繼續尋求祂的面
希伯來書
4 16 所以我們只管坦然無懼的,來到施恩的寶座前,為要得憐恤,蒙恩惠作隨時的幫助
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

When I say…”I am a Christian” 當我說我是基督徒時
I do not wish to judge.
我並不是在評價你
I have no authority.
因為我沒有那樣的權柄
I only know I’m loved.
我只知道我是被愛著的
哥林多前書
4 5 所以時候未到,什麼都不要論斷,只等主來,他要照出暗中的隱情,顯明人心的意念 ‧那時各人要從神那裡得著稱讚‧

Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.
