A 30-DAY GUIDE FOR NEW BELIEVERS

30天新教徒导航

by JOHN D. BECKETT


DAY 22 TEMPTATION

第22天  诱惑

Why do I keep having these thoughts?

我为什么有这样的想法?

We need to be aware of a tenacious and destructive force at work in the life of the believer. It is called "temptation" -- the continuing effect and downward pull of our former life and habits. The end game of temptation is always the same, to keep us from a close walk with the Lord. Temptation is never fatal. But yielding to it can set us back and cause much discouragement.

我们需要意识到信徒人生中持久力和破坏力。它就是诱惑----持续影响我们以前的生活和习惯,将他们往后拉。诱惑的结局都一样,就是阻碍我们跟上帝亲近。诱惑不是致命的,但是屈从于它,将会让我们后退,将导致我们失去信心。

Some mistakenly believe that Christians are immune to evil thoughts and behaviors -- that some kind of protective shield drops over us to keep us from being lured away. That may be a happy notion, but it's not reality. In fact, I have noticed that as a person moves ahead with the Lord, temptations often intensify. The believer is, after all, of great value to the Lord and therefore a target for our adversary, who hates anything God loves. Peter refers to us as "a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people" (1 Peter 2:9). Credentials like these increase Satan's obsession to pull us down and separate us from the Lord.

一些人错误地认为基督教徒是不受邪念和恶行影响。有某种保护罩保护我们让我们不受诱惑。那可能是一个好的想法,但是现实不是这样。实际上,我已经意识到当一个人走向上帝,诱惑通常增强。毕竟,信徒对上帝很重要,因此是异教徒的对象,异教徒憎恨上帝喜欢的。皮特把我们称作”选定的一代,忠实的祭司职,神圣的民族,特殊人群“。(皮特前书 2:9)。 Credentials ,这些着了撒旦魔的,将我们往回拉,将我们同上帝分开。

I find I have to guard myself diligently, especially in three areas of temptation identified by the Apostle John. He cautions, "All that is in the world -- the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life -- is not of the Father, but of the world" (1 John 2:16).

The lust of the flesh includes improper kinds of self-indulgence, especially in the sexual arena -- and that includes not only our actions but our thoughts as well.

我发现我要努力保护自己,特别在抵制使徒约翰识别出来的三个诱惑。他指出,“所有这些人世间的诱惑----肉体的诱惑,眼红,虚荣心”,是来自人世间,不是来自上帝。(约翰前书 章节 2:16)

肉体的诱惑包括各种堕落,特别是性的诱惑---它不仅包括行为,也包括思想。

The lust of the eyes refers to all that we illicitly crave -- and which, by the way, does little to satisfy should we attain it.

眼红指不正当的奢望---不努力,却想非法获取它。

The pride of life is perhaps the most insidious -- producing in us self-promotion, selfish ambition, and advancement at the expense of others. Ultimately the pride of life seeks to make us like God -- the very cause of Satan's fall from heaven.

虚荣心可能是潜在的----产生于自我督促,自我野心,是以牺牲他人利益为代价的。虚荣心的本质是让我们想上帝一样是万能的---这正是撒旦下降到凡间的原因。
