【雙語園地】當我說我是基督徒

 

神祝福你的原因

作者: Carol S.Wimmer 翻譯:以恩

 


當我說,"我是基督徒"時,
我並不是在大喊:"我得救啦!"
我是在喁喁私語:"我曾經迷失
所以為何我選擇了這條道路"。

 

當我說,"我是基督徒"時,
我並不是因為人的驕傲。
我是在懺悔,我曾經跌倒,
所以需要上帝來帶領我。

 

當我說,"我是基督徒"時,
並不是要表示我很堅強。
我是在自白,因為我軟弱,
所以祈求有能力前行。

 

當我說,"我是基督徒"時,
我不是在祈求成功,
我是在承認我曾經失敗,
甚至無法償還罪債。

 

當我說,"我是基督徒"時,
我並不認為已經知道一切。
我只是交託我的迷惘,
謙卑地祈求教導。

 

當我說,"我是基督徒"時,
並不是宣告我已經完全。
我有太多顯而易見的瑕疵,
但是神相信我有價值。

 

當我說,"我是基督徒"時,
我依然可以感受被(荊棘)刺的疼痛。
我在這令人痛心的事上有份,
所以我尋求神的名。

 

當我說,"我是基督徒"時,
我並不是要論斷。
我沒有那樣的權柄,
我只知道我深深被愛。

When I say I am a Christian
Written by  Carol S.Wimmer

When I say, "I am a Christian"

I'm not shouting, "I've been saved!"
I'm whispering, "I get lost sometimes
That's why I chose this way"


When I say, "I am a Christian"
I don't speak with human pride
I'm confessing that I stumble –
needing God to be my guide


When I say, "I am a Christian"
I'm not trying to be strong
I'm professing that I'm weak
and pray for strength to carry on


When I say, "I am a Christian"
I'm not bragging of success
I'm admitting that I've failed
and cannot ever pay the debt


When I say, "I am a Christian"
I don't think I know it all
I submit to my confusion
asking humbly to be taught


When I say, "I am a Christian"
I'm not claiming to be perfect
My flaws are far too visible
but God believes I'm worth it


When I say, "I am a Christian"
I still feel the sting of pain
I have my share of heartache
which is why I seek God's name


When I say, "I am a Christian"
I do not wish to judge
I have no authority
I only know I'm loved
