A 30-DAY GUIDE FOR NEW BELIEVERS

新教徒30天导航
by JOHN D. BECKETT

DAY 8 WHY 30 DAYS?

第八天 为什么是30天导航
When will the good changes begin?

好运何时开始?

 

When we make any kind of significant change in our lives, the first 30 days are critical. Studies show it takes this long to shed an old habit, or establish a new one.

我们人生发生重大变化之际,前30天是关键。研究表明戒掉旧恶习,养成一种新的习惯需要很长时间。

 

I mention this now to encourage you to press on with this study. Let the "habit" of studying God's word, His character and His ways become well rooted. In the remaining three weeks we'll consider several more topics that are essential to forming a firm spiritual foundation and walking out the new life in Christ. These 30 days are the first installment in your adventure of a lifetime.

我此刻提及这个是鼓励你抓紧学习。让学习上帝话语(圣经),了解上帝的个性,熟悉上帝的道法在你的人生扎根。在剩下的3周,我们将开始考虑更严肃的话题,他们对你形成牢固的精神基础和在基督教开创新人生非常重要。30天导航是人生旅程的开端。

 

The reality is that you, as a new believer, can be pulled off course in a number of ways. Let's look at two major challenges and how you might respond.

当前的现实是你是一名新教徒,你可能因某些原因落下一些课。让我们看看两个主要挑战,看你如何反应。

 

The pull of family and friends who don't understand. In coming to Christ you've made a radical choice, the implications of which are just hitting you. Regardless of how much or how little you've said to others, they are bound to notice early indicators of your changed life. Some will be interested to know more -- an opportunity to share your faith. Others will be antagonistic. They may mock you or whisper behind your back. It's important to realize it's not you, but Christ in you, that has them agitated. There is power in Christ, and that power draws a reaction from others.

家人和朋友不理解你,拉你后腿。你经过激励的思想斗争,选择信仰基督教,他的影响正在起作用。不管你跟他人经常谈及,还是从不谈及你信教的事,他们将注意到你人生开始发生变化。一些人想知道更多,这是一个你分享你信仰的时刻。另外一些人将反对。他们可能嘲笑你或在你背后说风凉话。你要意识不是你,而是你信仰的耶稣让他们生气,这一点很重要。基督教有影响力,引起他人做出反应。
