<续>

This act of believing, the term used most commonly in the New Testament, is not merely mental assent but actively inviting Jesus to be our Savior and Lord with all our heart and strength. Passion is permissible!

《新约》普遍采用的术语,宗教信仰行为,不是精神空虚,而是积极邀请耶稣作为我们的救世主,作为万能的上帝。允许激进派。

As mentioned earlier, I reached this point of commitment after years of trying to make it on my own. I finally came to the end of myself -- and reached out to Jesus. I became a believer. I was "born again." I experienced a fresh start, a new beginning.

正如上文提及的,我历经数年信仰基督,才达到做善举的地步。我终于来到我人生的终点---伸手求助于耶稣。我成为一个信徒。我获得重生。我经历一个全新的开始。

Though observable changes didn't take place immediately, I can look back now to see a process of gradual change -- one that began a major shift in the entire direction of my life. In a word: transformed!

尽管没有马上出现明显的变化,现在我回顾这个渐变过程---它是我人生方向的大转变。简而言之,涅槃重生!

Here are some of the ways the Bible describes transformation:
A 30-DAY GUIDE FOR NEW BELIEVERS
by JOHN D. BECKETT

下述是圣经描述转变的几种方式:

新信徒30天导航 
Out of Darkness Into Light (1 Peter 2:9) 
Out of Bondage Into Freedom (Romans 8:21)
Out of Death Into Life (Romans 6:13)

走出黑暗见到光明(彼得后书 章节2:9)

由束缚到获得自由(罗马书 章节 8:21)

死后获重生(罗马书 章节 6:13)

On day one after your commitment to follow Jesus you may not feel any different. Don't let your feelings obscure this one major fact: a huge transition has taken place! It will take time -- maybe a lifetime -- to fully appreciate the ramifications of turning your life over to Christ -- both now and for eternity. It still overwhelms me to realize that God Himself met me as a lost, self-willed, and self-sufficient young man. The Author of all creation reached out to me, accepted me into His family and showed me His unconditional love. And that love has never diminished for a single moment since.

在你承诺你信仰基督之后你可能感觉不到有什么变化。不要让你的感觉左右你,让你看不到大变化:人生巨变已经发生了!它将需要时间---可能需要一生的时间--你发自内心感激信仰基督教给你带来的影响---现在和永远。我仍记忆犹新,我信仰基督时,我是一个迷失方向的,自负的,自以为是的年轻人。万物之主伸手援助我,接纳我加入基督教,给予我他无私的关爱,自那以后,上帝的关爱一丝未减。

Don't be discouraged if you don't see the evidence right away. Stand your ground. You have embarked on a new journey. You are a new person with a new, transformed life. Your adventure of following Jesus has just begun.

如果你没有看到这些,不要泄气。站起身,你已经开始新的旅途。你以崭新额面貌面对新的人生。你尾随耶稣的征途刚开始。
