DAY 24 AN ETERNAL PERSPECTIVE

第24天  永恒的看法

How do I keep my focus on that which is lasting and most important?

我如何让我关注持久的且十分重要的事情?

It is hard for us, when we are studying for an exam, changing the baby's diaper or closing a 
business deal, to give much thought to eternity. Most of the time, our focus is on doing the 

next thing -- that which is right before us.

当我们为应付考试努力学习时,给小孩更换尿布时,关闭一项业务时,很难考虑周全。大多数情况下,我们关注的是眼前要做的事情。

But King Solomon, to whom God gave great wisdom, said, "[God] has also set eternity in the 
hearts of men" (Ecclesiastes 3:11NIV). That is why, even in the press of the daily round, 
something deep within us calls out to understand the eternal -- that which is lasting and most 

important. (This yearning, by the way, is evident in the search questions that have prompted 

people to read this study, such as "What is there after this life?")

但是,上帝赋予伟大智慧的国王所列门(King Solomon)说,“上帝已经将永恒置于人民心中”(传道书(Ecclesiastes) 章节 3::11 NIV)。那是为什么日常生活压力下,我们内心深处的某些东西被唤起,可以理解永恒,即持久和十分重要的东西。(在某种意义上,这种渴望证实督促人们阅读这样的研究,如“今生之后是什么?


Our window into the eternal dimension is through the Bible. (By the way, I would question any 
source, other than the Bible, that says it knows what eternity is like, or what the future 

holds.)  Jesus described eternal life this way: "And this is eternal life, that they may know 

You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent" (John 17:3).

我们通过圣经看永恒的世界。(顺便说一下,我将质疑各种资源,圣经除外,这些资源说它知道什么是永恒或将来拥有什么)。

耶稣是这样描写永恒人生:“这就是永恒人生,他们可能知道你,唯一的上帝和耶稣,你把你送给耶稣”(约翰福音 章节 17:3



The scriptures assert that the promise of eternity is as certain as the reality of this life. 
When Jesus said, "God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever 
believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16 NIV), He was affirming a 
direct and immutable link between believing and eternity. When we give ourselves to Jesus, He 
joyfully and emphatically opens the way for us to be with Him forever. Eternity profoundly 

impacts our lives here on earth and on into the next life -- life after death.

这些经文声称永恒的承诺跟现实的人生是一样,真真确确的。耶稣说:“上帝如此爱这个世界,他献出了他的独子,无论谁都认为他不会死,应具有永恒的生命(约翰福音 章节 3:16 NIV” 他确实是信念和永恒之间的直接且不可改变的联系。当我们把我们交给耶稣,他很高兴,断然指给我们一条永远跟他在一起的路。永恒深深影响我们今生在世,也影响我们死后的世界。
