Key #1: You can't love yourself on the basis of your fallen human nature, no matter how much you beautify it, educate it or indulge it. You have to face the hard reality that apart from Christ, you are "nothing." Peter, quoting the prophet Isaiah says: "All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls away" (1 Peter 1:24). In our honest moments we can identify with the Psalmist when he says, "But I am a worm" (Psalm 22:6).

关键点1:你不能基于你堕落的人性爱自己,不论你怎么美化它,教育它,或纵容它。你必须面对没有基督的艰难现实,你是一名无名小卒。皮特,引用使徒以赛亚的说法,所有肉体如同绿草,人的荣誉如同绿草丛中的花卉,草凋谢,花也凋零(彼得后书 章节 1:24)。在我们虔诚时,当他说,“但是,我是一条蠕虫”(赞美诗 章节22:6我们可以用赞美诗来识别它。

Key #2: You love yourself on the basis of God's love for you. First you have to see yourself as God sees you -- as incredibly valuable to Him. He fashioned you after Himself (see Genesis 1:26). He knew you even before you were born (see Psalm 139:13-16). He loves you so much He gave Himself for you (see John 3:16). He created you to live together with Him in this life and in eternity (see 1 Thessalonians 5:10).

关键点2:你基于上帝爱你爱自己。首先,你要在上帝看你的时候,你看你自己。---对他难以置信。他在你信仰基督后他塑造你(见 创世纪 1:26)。他在你重生前,你认识你。(见赞美诗 章节139:13-16)。他爱你,他为你献出自身(见约翰福音  章节 1:26)。他创造你,他让你今生及永生与他同在。

So how should you view yourself? You are one of God's priceless children (for He paid dearly for you through Jesus' sacrifice on the cross.) You are precious in His sight, filled with His Spirit, part of His body, commissioned to fulfill His grand design for your life, the object of His great love and affection. On this basis you can feed your soul and spirit with good things, take care of your body, discipline the unruly aspects of your life, enjoy fellowship with Him and others and apply your best energies in service to Him. Though you stumble, by His grace you will learn from your mistakes, be forgiven, and ultimately finish the race set before you (see 2 Timothy 4:7).

As one who is intensely loved by God, not from a puffed-up ego, you can love yourself and then "love your neighbor as yourself."

因此,我们应如何看待我们自己?你是上帝珍贵的孩子(因为他为你献出他的独子耶稣,让他受难于十字架。)在他看来,你是很珍贵的,你具有他的精神,他肉体的一部分。受命完成它授予你的人生,履行他的仁爱和关照。基于这点,你可以用好的东西来充实你的灵魂和精神,注意你的身体,不管你野性的一面,享受你跟上帝及他人的关系,竭力为他服务。尽管你努力了,借助上帝,你从你的过失得到教训,受上帝宽恕,你基本完成上帝给你设定的人生跑程(见提摩太书 章节 4:7)。当一个人受上帝热爱,不是一个自以为了不起的人,你可以爱自己,进而如同爱自己一般爱你的邻居。
