关于我

主啊,我有一个祈祷,让十架旗帜在这里飘。 引我奔走前面的路程,让我的生命完全倾倒。掌管我生命深处的钥匙,接受我隐秘深处的爱情。 在我未收回我的奉献时,捆绑我在你的祭坛,以免我凭己意在世界流连忘返。你是我坚固营垒的破碎者,又是我属天灵宫的重建者。 # 我的祈祷只有一句话,主啊重建城墙永不倒,我的祈祷只有一句话,主啊重建城墙永不倒。

Looking Back

回顾

 

15 With the coming of dawn, the angels urged Lot, saying, “Hurry! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished.” 16 When he hesitated, the men grasped his hand and the hands of his wife and of his two daughters and led them safely out of the city, for the LORD was merciful to them. 17 As soon as they had brought them out, one of them said, “Flee for your lives! Don’t look back, and don’t stop anywhere in the plain! Flee to the mountains or you will be swept away!”  26 But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.

15 天明了,天使催逼罗得说:起来!带着你的妻子和你在这里的两个女儿出去,免得你因这城里的罪恶同被剿灭。16 但罗得迟延不走。二人因为耶和华怜恤罗得,就拉着他的手和他妻子的手,并他两个女儿的手,把他们领出来,安置在城外;17 领他们出来以後,就说:逃命罢!不可回头看,也不可在平原站住。要往山上逃跑,免得你被剿灭。26 罗得的妻子在後边回头一看,就变成了一根盐柱。

 

Genesis 19:15-17, 26

创世记19:15-17,26

 

The cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were full of wickedness.  This brought God's judgment upon them.  God told Abraham about His decision to destroy these wicked cities (Ge 18:20-21).  He sent two angels to bring Abraham's nephew Lot and his family out before the divine punishment.  The angels urged Lot to hurry and take his wife and his two daughters away from the plain where the two cities were situated to the mountains.  They gave them specific instruction to not look back and not stop anywhere in the plain (Ge 19:15-17). “But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.” (Ge 19:26)

所多玛和蛾摩拉的城市充满邪恶。这给他们带来的神的审判。神告诉亚伯拉罕他的决定来销毁这些邪恶的城市(创18:20-21)。他派了两个天使在神的惩罚之前带亚伯拉罕的侄子罗得和他的家人出来。天使敦促罗得赶快带他的妻子和他的两个女儿从两城市所在的平原到山上去。他们给他们具体的指令,不要回头,并不要停止在平原(创19:15-17)的任何地方。 但“罗得的妻子在後边回头一看,就变成了一根盐柱。”(创19:26)

 

Lot chose to move to the city when he separated from his uncle Abraham.  He lived among the Sodomites and became a prominent citizen, apparently enjoying a high social status (Ge 19:1).  They must have had a house and servants and they enjoyed their material wealth.  Lot's wife loved these perks and in a moment of weakness turned her head for a lingering look of her home for the past several years.  Her love for her wealth turned her into a pillar of salt.

当罗得从他的叔叔亚伯拉罕分开他选择搬移到城市去。他生活在所多玛人当中,并成为一个有名的公民,显然享有很高的社会地位(创19:1)。他们一定有一个房子和一些仆人,他们享有他们物质的财富。罗得的妻子喜欢这些好处,一时软弱回头观看她过去多年的家。她对她的财富的爱使她变成了盐柱。

 

It is her past glory and pleasure in her time in the big cities that she could not leave behind.  It is not a sin for us to enjoy the social status and material goods.  However when we love them more than loving God, then it is a problem.  “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.  But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.” (1 Tim 6:10-11)  Lot's wife failed to flee from her love of money and status and instead of pursuing these virtues she perished.

她不能放下的是她过去在大城市时的辉煌和乐趣。我们享受社会地位和物质不是一种罪过。然而,当我们爱它们超过爱神,那么这就是一个问题。“贪财是万恶之根。有人贪恋钱财,就被引诱离了真道,用许多愁苦把自己刺透了。但你这属神的人要逃避这些事,追求公义、敬虔、信心、爱心、忍耐、温柔。“(提前6:10-11)罗得的妻子没有逃避她对金钱和地位的热爱,而她不追求这些美德,反而灭亡。

 

In his letter to Timothy Paul reminded Timothy that sometimes it is not only acceptable for us to flee, it is necessary for us to flee.  He said, “Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.” (2 Tim 2:22)  We must flee from the pleasure and indulgence of the flesh.  We must also flee from the shadow of our past, our old self to pursue the Godly character.  Don't look back.  Set your gaze at our Lord.

在他给提摩太的信中保罗提醒提摩太,有时我们逃避不仅是可接受的,我们逃避是需要的。他说,“你要逃避少年的私欲,同那清心祷告主的人追求公义、信德、仁爱、和平。”(提后2:22) 我们必须逃避情欲的快感与放纵。我们还必须从我们过去的阴影,我们的老我中逃离,去追求敬虔的品格。不要回顾,要定睛在我们的主身上。

 

Prophet Isaiah tells us that we should “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.” (Isa 43:18)  We must let go of our former successes and failures, for past successes puff us up and past failures hinder us.  Don't look back.  Surrender your past to our Lord.

先知以赛亚告诉我们,“你们不要记念从前的事,也不要思想古时的事。”(赛43:18) 我们必须放下我们以前的成功和失败,过去所得的成就使我们骄傲,我们过去的失败阻碍我们。不要回顾,要交出你的过去给我们的主。

 

Once when Jesus called someone to follow Him, that person said he would follow Him after he went back to say goodbye to his family.  Jesus replied, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.” (Lk 9:62)  Don't look back.  Commit your life to our Lord.

有一次耶稣呼召一个人来跟随他,那人说,他要先回家向家人道别后他才跟随他。耶稣回答说:“手扶着犁向後看的,不配进神的国。”(路9:62)  不要回顾,要把你的生命委身我们的主。

 

Jesus said, "Because I live, you also will live" (Jn 14:19).  The certainty of our life is found in the certainty of Jesus' life.  Jesus' resurrection proves that death has no dominion over Him.  He has paid for our sin's wage, therefore we do not return to the grave of our old sins but to walk in the newness of life.  As Jesus continually marched toward His cross while He was living on earth, we ought to also shed all our encumbrances that hinder our following Jesus.

耶稣说:“因为我活着,你们也要活着。”(约14:19)  我们生命的肯定是在耶稣生命的肯定中找到的。耶稣的复活证明死亡并没有在统治他。他为我们付上了罪的工价,因此我们不返回到我们老罪的坟墓,而要过新的生活。正如当耶稣生活在地上他不断朝他的十字架邁进,我们应该也放下我们所有阻碍我们跟随耶稣的负累。

 

Jesus saves us from our sins for God's glory.  We are a new creation with a new birth (2 Co 5:17), and we are not our own (2 Co 1:22), hence we do not look back to our past, our old self, or our worldly gain.  To God be the glory.

耶稣因为神的荣耀把我们从我们的罪中拯救。我们是一个新诞生的新造的人(林后5:17),我们不是属于我们自己的(林后1:22),因此,我们再不回顾我们的过去,我们的老我,或者我们的世俗收获。愿荣耀归给神。
