Have you heard of the Four Spiritual Laws?你聽過四個屬靈的原則嗎?
Just as there are physical laws that govern the physical universe, so are there spiritual laws that govern your relationship with God.正如有許多的物理定律管理著物質的宇宙,同樣也有一些屬靈的定律管理著你和神的關係。
1

LAW ONE

God LOVES you and offers a wonderful PLAN for your life.

1

原則一

神愛你,並且為你的生命有一奇妙的計劃。

(References contained in this booklet should be read in context from the Bible whenever possible)(這個網頁的參考連結至中文和合本聖經,可能的話,請盡量閱讀經文出處的上下文)
God's Love神的愛
"For 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)「神愛世人,甚至將祂的獨生子(耶穌基督)賜給他們,叫一切信祂的,不致滅亡,反得永。」(約翰福音3:16和合本)
God's Plan神的計劃
[Christ speaking] “I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly” [that it might be full and meaningful]. (John 10:10)耶穌基督說:「我來了是要叫人得生命並且得的更豐盛。」(約翰福音10:10)
Why is it that most people are not experiencing the abundant life? Because... 為什麼大多數人沒有經驗過這種豐盛的生命呢? 因 為
2

LAW TWO

People are SINFUL and SEPARATED from God so we cannot know and experience God’s love and plan for our life.

2

原 則 ニ

人因有罪而與神隔絕,所以不能知道並經驗神的愛和神為他生命的計劃。

People are Sinful人因有罪
"All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)「因為世人都犯了罪,虧缺了神的榮耀」 (羅馬書3:23)
We were created to have a personal relationship with God, but by our own choice and self-will we have gone our own independent way and that relationship has been broken. This self-will, often seen as an attitude of active rebellion towards God or a lack of interest in Him, is an evidence of what the Bible calls sin.神創造人原是要人享受與祂同在一起的快樂,但因各人頑固任性、偏行己路、背向真神,以致與神隔絕。這種向神任性的態度,使人對神漠不關心或公開反對,就是聖經所說的罪
People are Separated與 神 隔 絕
"The wages of sin is death" [spiritual separation from God]. (Romans 6:23)「因為罪的工價乃是死。」(靈性與神隔絕)(羅馬書6:23)
This picture illustrates that God is holy and people are sinful. A great gap separates the two. The arrows illustrate that people are continually trying to reach God and the abundant life through their own efforts, such as a good life, philosophy, or religion – but they always fail.聖潔的神與有罪的人中間,有如深淵隔絕。雖然人不斷地用自己的方法,就如善行、道德、宗教、哲學等,來尋求神和豐盛的生命,但是總得不著。
The third law explains the only way to bridge this gap…第三律告訴我們這難題的唯一答案…
3

LAW THREE

Jesus Christ is God’s ONLY provision for our sin. Through Him alone you can know and experience God’s love and plan for your life.

3

原則三

耶穌基督是神為人的罪所預備的唯一救法,藉著祂你可以知道並經驗神的愛和神為你生命的計劃。

He Died in Our Place耶穌基督為我們死
"God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)「唯有基督在我們還作罪人的時候為我們死,神的愛就在此向我們顯明了。」(羅馬書5:8)
He Rose From the Dead耶穌基督從死裡復活
"Christ died for our sins…He was buried…He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures…He appeared to Peter, then to the Twelve. After that He appeared to more than five hundred…" (1 Corinthians 15:3-6)「基督照聖經所說,為我們的罪死了,而且埋葬了,又照聖經所說,第三天復活了,並且顯給磯法看,然後顯給十二使徒看,後來一時顯給五百多弟兄看。」(哥林多前書15:3~6)
He Is the Only Way to God耶基督是唯一的道路
"Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.'" (John 14:6)耶穌基督說:「我就是道路、真理、生命;若不藉著我,沒有人能到父(神)那裡去。」 約翰福音14:6)
This diagram illustrates that God has bridged the gulf that separates us from Him by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross in our place to pay the penalty for our sins.神差祂的兒子耶穌基督,為我們的罪死在十字架上,成為神與人中間的橋樑,溝通了兩者之間的深淵。
It is not enough just to know these three laws... 只知道以上三個定律還不夠
4

LAW FOUR

We must individually RECEIVE Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord; then we can know and experience God’s love and plan for our lives.

4

原則四

我們必須親自接受耶穌基督作救主和生命的主,這樣我們才能知道並經驗神的愛和神為我們生命的計劃。

We Must Receive Christ我們必須接受基督
"As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name." (John 1:12)「凡接待祂的,就是信祂名的人,祂就賜他們權柄,作神的兒女。」(約翰福音1:12)
We Receive Christ Through Faith我們藉著信心接受基督
"By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works so that no one may boast." (Ephesians 2:8,9)「你們得救是本乎恩,也因著信,這並不是出於自己乃是神所賜的,也不是出於行為,免得有人自誇。」(以弗所書2:8,9)
When we receive Christ we experience a new birth. (Read John 3:1-8)我們接受基督,就得著新的生命(讀約翰福音3:1~8)
We Receive Christ by Personal Invitation我們必須親自邀請基督進入心中
[Christ is speaking] “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him.” (Revelation 3:20)耶穌基督說:「看哪,我站在門外叩門,若有聽見我聲音就開門的,我要進到他那裡去。」(啟示錄3:20)
Receiving Christ involves turning to God from self (repentance) and trusting Christ to come into our lives to forgive our sins and to make us what He wants us to be. Just to agree intellectually that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He died on the cross for our sins is not enough. Nor is it enough to have an emotional experience. We receive Jesus Christ by faith, as an act of the will.接受基督包括從自我轉向神,相信基督進入我們的生命,赦免我們的罪,使我們成為神所喜悅的人。人只在理智上同意關於基督的真理,或只有一些情感的經驗都是不夠的。

這兩個圓圈代表兩種生命:
‎(THESE TWO CIRCLES REPRESENT TWO KINDS OF LIVES:)‎

自我管理的生命
‎(SELF-DIRECTED LIFE)‎

基督管理的生命
‎(CHRIST-DIRECTED LIFE)‎

自我在寶座上 ‎(Self is on the throne)‎

基督在生命以外 ‎(Christ is outside the life.)‎

人生的各項活動在自 我管理之下,時常產 生各種混亂和不安 ‎(Interests are directed by self, often resulting in discord and frustration.)‎

在生命的寶座上 ‎(Christ is in the life and on the throne.)‎

自我退下寶座 ‎(Self is yielding to Christ.)‎

人 生 的 各 項 活 動 在 基 督 管 理 之 下 , 結 果 就 合 乎 神 的 計 劃 ‎(Interests are directed by Christ, resulting in harmony with God's plan.)‎

以下說明你怎樣才能接受基督:
‎(The following explains how you can receive Christ:)‎

You Can Receive Christ Right Now by Faith Through Prayer現在就可以藉着信心的禱告接受基督
(Prayer is talking with God)(禱告就是和神交談)
God knows your heart and is not so concerned with your words as He is with the attitude of your heart. The following is a suggested prayer:神知道你的心,祂看重你內心的態度,過於你的言語,下面的禱告可做參考:
Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be. 「主耶穌啊,我需要祢。感謝祢為我的罪死在十字架上。我願意打開心門接受耶穌基督作我的救主和生命的主。感謝祢赦免我的罪,求祢管理我的一生,使我成為祢所喜悅的人。奉主耶穌的名禱告,阿們。」
Does this prayer express the desire of your heart? If it does, I invite you to pray this prayer right now.這個禱告是否合乎你的心願?
Christ will come into your life as He promised. 如果是,請你現在就作相同的禱告,基督就會照著祂的應許進入你的生命。
How to Know That Christ Is in Your Life怎 樣 知 道 基 督 已 在 您 的 生 命 中
Did you receive Christ into your life? According to His promise in Revelation 3:20, where is Christ right now in relation to you? Christ said that He wouldcome into your life. Would He mislead you? On what authority do you know that God has answered your prayer? (The rustworthiness of God Himself and His Word, the Bible.)怎樣知道基督已在你的生命中?你有沒有請基督進入你的生命?根據啟示錄3:20神的應許 現在基督是否在你的心裡?基督應許進入你的生命祂會失信嗎?你有什麼根據知道神答應了你的禱告?(根據神的信實和祂可靠的話—聖經
The Bible promises Eternal Life to all who receive Christ.聖經應許凡接受基督的人都有永生
"God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life." (1 John 5:11-13)「這見證就是神賜給我們永生,這永生也是在祂兒子裡面。人有了神的兒子就有生命,沒有神的兒子就沒有生命。我將這些話寫給你們信奉神兒子之名的人,要叫你們知道自己有永生。」(約翰一書 5:11~13)
Thank God often that Christ is in your life and that He will never leave you (Hebrews 13:5). You can know on the basis of His promise that Christ lives in you and that you have eternal life from the very moment you invite Him in. He will not deceive you.要 常 常 感 謝 神,因 為 基 督 已 進入 你 的 生 命 ,並 且 永 不 離 開 你(希 伯 來 書13:5)。當 你 照 著 神 的 應 許 ,請 祂 進 入 你 心 時,就 能 知 道 復 活 的 基督 已 在 你 的 生 命 中 ,並 且 已 將 永 生 賜 給 你,因 為 祂 絕 不 會欺 騙 你。
What about feelings?關 於 感 覺 怎 樣 呢 ?
Do Not rely on your Feelings不要依靠感覺
The promise of God's Word, the Bible - not our feelings - is our authority. The Christian lives by faith (trust) in the trustworthiness of God Himself and His Word. This train diagram illustrates the relationship among fact (God and His Word), faith (our trust in God and His Word), and feeling (the result of our faith and obedience). (Read John 14:21)我們信仰的根據,是聖經可靠的應許,不是我們容易改變的感覺。基督徒的信心生活是根據神的信實和聖經的可靠。下面火車的圖表說明事實(神和祂的話)、信心(我們信靠神和祂的話)、和感覺(我們信靠和順服的結果)三者之間的關係。(約翰福音 14:21)
The train will run with or without a passenger car. However, it would be useless to attempt to pull the train by the passenger car. In the same way, as Christians we do not depend on feelings or emotions to decide what is true, but we place our faith (trust) in the trustworthiness of God and the promises of His Word.車頭不論有沒有車廂都可以開動。但是若用車廂拉動車頭是不可能的。照樣,我們基督徒不應該靠感覺或情緒,而是把我們的信心放在神的信實和祂話語的應許上。
Now That You Have Received Christ現在你已經接受了基督
The moment you received Christ by faith, as an act of the will, many things happened, including the following:當你憑信心接受基督的時候,你的生命已經發生了許多改變,至少包括下面幾點:
  • Christ came into your life (Revelation 3:20 and Colossians 1:27)
  • 基督已經進入你的生命(啟示錄3:20;歌羅西書1:27)。
  • Your sins were forgiven (Colossians 1:14)
  • 你的罪已經得到赦免(歌羅西書 1:14)。
  • You became a child of God (John 1:12)
  • 你已經成為神的兒女(約翰福音1:12)。
  • You received eternal life (John 5:24)
  • 你已經有了永遠的生命(約翰福音5:24)。
  • You began the great adventure for which God created you. (John 10:10; 2 Corinthians 5:17; 1 Thessalonians 5:18)
  • 你已經開始了神為你計畫的新生命(約翰福音 10:10;哥林多後書5:17;帖撒羅尼迦前書5:18)。
Can you think of anything more wonderful that could happen to you than receiving Christ? Would you like to thank God in prayer right now for what He has done for you? By thanking God, you demonstrate your faith.接受基督實在是你人生中最奇妙的事。你願意現在禱告,感謝神為你所做的事嗎?謝禱告就是信心的表示。
What now?還有什麼呢?
Suggestions for Christian Growth屬靈生命長進的建議
Spiritual growth results from trusting Jesus Christ. "...The righteous man shall live by faith" (Galatians 3:11). A life of faith will enable you to trust God increasingly with every detail of your life, and to practice the following: 屬靈生命的長進是從信靠耶穌基督而來。「義人必因信得生」(加拉太書3:11)。信心的生活會使你在凡事上更倚靠神,並實行下面各項:
  • Go to God in prayer daily (John 15:7)
  • 每天向神禱告(約翰福音15:7)。
  • Read God's Word daily. (see Acts 17:11) Begin with the Gospel of John.
  • 每天研讀聖經(使徒行傳17:11) 可從約翰福音開始。
  • Obey God moment by moment. (see John 14:21)
  • 時刻順服神(約翰福音14:21)。
  • Witness for Christ by your life and words. (see Matthew 4:19 and John 15:8)
  • 每天藉著你的生活言行為基督作見證(馬太福音4:19;約翰福音15:8)。
  • Trust God for every detail of your life. (1 Peter 5:7)
  • 在你一切所行的事上,都倚靠神(彼得前書5:7)。
  • Holy Spirit – allow Him to control and empower your daily life and witness (Galatians 5:16,17; Acts 1:8).
  • 讓聖靈管理你每天的生活,並賜你能力為基督作見證(加拉太書5:16,17;使徒行傳1:8)。
Fellowship in a Good Church參加教會的重要
The Bible tells us the importance of meeting together with other Christians (Hebrews 10:25).
Have you ever watched a fire burning in a fireplace? Several logs together burn brightly. But if you pull one log away from the fire, its flame soon goes out. The same thing happens to us if we do not spend time with other Christians. Attend a church where Christ is talked about and the Bible is taught. Start this week and make plans to attend regularly.
希伯來書10:25教訓我們:「不可停止聚會………。」幾根木材一起燃燒就光熱培增,若將一根抽出,放在一旁,熱火就會熄滅。你和其他基督徒的關係也是一樣。如果你尚未加入教會,不必等人邀請,請主動到附近參加尊崇耶穌基督並傳揚聖經真理的教會。從這個星期開始,並請計劃經常按時去參加教會的聚會。
