A 30-DAY GUIDE FOR NEW BELIEVERS
by JOHN D. BECKETT

新信徒30天导航 
DAY 2 BEGINNING THE JOURNEY

第2天 起程出发
What can I expect on my journey?

在我的征途上,我能有什么期待?

Years ago, when our family would set out on a long car trip, we would be only a few miles down the road when one of our then small children would ask, "Daddy, are we there yet?"

很多年前,我们一家开车做一次长途旅行,当我们沿途仅行走了几海里,我们当中的一员,一个小孩就问“爸爸,我们还没有到吗?”

As we begin our spiritual journey, let's not focus on how long the journey is. And let's not worry about what we'll encounter along the way, for in reality we don't know. Only God does. Rather, let us think about what's happening right now. Here are some key ideas:

*Just as you committed your life to Jesus, He has fully committed Himself to you. He promises: "I will never leave you nor forsake you" (Hebrews 13:5). Jesus is with you all the time, regardless of your situation.
当我们开始灵魂旅途,我们不要关注旅途有多远。我们不要担心沿途我们将遇到什么,因为实际上我们不清楚。只有神灵知道。相反地,我们要考虑当前发生的事情。关键点如下:

*Give up the idea of instant results. Spiritual growth doesn't happen overnight, it is a process. Look for small changes: meeting a new Christian friend; making a step to curtail an annoying habit; discovering a helpful insight from the Bible.

放弃马上有结果的想法。不能一夜之间就思想升华(成为基督教徒不是一天两天的事?)。它需要过程。寻找细小的变化:会见新教友;开始改变生气的习惯;从圣经中读到有用的见解
*Take your new life a day at a time, even moment by moment. A daily writing by Oswald Chambers, whose thoughts on the Christian life are found in a wonderful book called My Utmost for His Highest, says in his July 28 entry: "(God's) purpose is for this minute, not something in the future." Focus on where He is working in you, around you and through you right now.

回顾你的新生活,甚至逐分逐秒回顾每个细节。Oswald Chambers写的日记,写他对基督教徒人生的看法,是一本很好的书,书名叫《竭诚为主》。他在7月28日的日记写道“上帝的目的是此时此刻,不是未来”。关注此刻他对你所做的,对你周围人所做的和通过你所做的。
