Our Primary Aim 我们的最初目标

To be pleasing to God in all things so as to bring real hope and help to people for God’s glory. Here is the trajectory of God’s agenda.

为了上帝的荣耀,在万事上讨 神喜悦,我们要把真正的希望与帮助带给人们。下面是 神计划的轨迹:

2 Corinthians 5:9 – We make our aim to be pleasing to God.

林后 5:9—我们立了志向,要得主的喜悦。

Hebrews 11:6 – Without faith, it is impossible to please God. 来 11:6—人非有信就不能得 神的喜悦。

Ephesians 5:10 – We are constantly trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.

弗 5:10—总要察验何为主所喜悦的事。

Colossians 1:9-12 – Pray (and counsel) that you may know God’s will so that you may live in a manner worthy of the Lord to please Him in all aspects.

西 1:9-12—满心知道 神的旨意,好叫你们行事为人对得起主,凡事蒙他喜悦。

9 And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, 10 so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. 11 May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, 12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.13 He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

9 因此,我们自从听见的日子,也就为你们不住的祷告祈求,愿你们在一切 属灵的智慧悟性上,满心知道 神的旨意。10 好叫你们行事为人对得起主, 凡事蒙他喜悦,在一切善事上结果子,渐渐的多知道 神。11 照他荣耀的 权能,得以在各样的力上加力,好叫你们凡事欢欢喜喜的忍耐宽容。12 又 感谢父,叫我们能与众圣徒在光明中同得基业。13 他救了我们脱离黑暗的 权势,把我们迁到他爱子的国里。14 我们在爱子里得蒙救赎,罪过得以赦 免。

Help others to fully know God’s will; So that they will live in a way that is worthy; Pleasing God, bearing fruit, and knowing God better. Help others to joyfully and patiently endure With God’s kind of strength and power Because of all that God has done in saving then.

帮助人完全明白上帝的旨意; 这样他们就可以有意义的生活; 讨 神喜悦、多结果子、多认识 神。 用 神的力量与大能 帮助人欢喜忍受、恒久忍耐 因为上帝在救赎中已经成就了。

Understanding Life Biblically 从圣经角度理解生命

Some simple models to help the counselor and the counselee understand life Biblically. While they are neither exhaustive nor comprehensive, they are intended to explain in such a way that you can Scripturally interpret what is going on.

下面几个简单模型可以帮助辅导者与被辅导者从圣经的角度来理解生命。虽然它们既不 详细又不综合,却试图用一种方法来帮你从圣经的角度来诠释所发生的。

These models are developed from the root, tree and fruit metaphors that are often used in the Scriptures. I am indebted to Dave Powlison and Paul Tripp for the basic ideas.

这些模型中根、树及果子,其隐喻都在圣经中用到。这些观点我是受 Dave Powlison 和 Paul Tripp 的启发得到的。

Primary Scriptures 基要经文

Jeremiah 17:5-10 and Psalm 1 耶 17:5-10、诗 1

5 Thus says the Lord: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the Lord. 6 He is like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see any good come. He shall dwell in the parched places of the wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land. 7 “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. 8 He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.” 9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? 10 “I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.”

5 耶和华如此说,倚靠人血肉的膀臂,心中离弃耶和华的,那人有祸了。 6 因他必像沙漠的杜松,不见福乐来到,却要住旷野乾旱之处,无人居住 的硷地。 7 倚靠耶和华,以耶和华为可靠的,那人有福了。 8 他必像树栽于水旁,在河边扎根,炎热来到,并不惧怕,叶子仍必青翠, 在乾旱之年毫无挂虑,而且结果不止。9 人心比万物都诡诈,坏到极处,谁能识透呢? 10 我耶和华是鉴察人心,试验人肺腑的,要照各人所行的和他作事的 结果报应他。

People as root and fruit 人如根与果子

Here is the simple representation of people as root and fruit. There is the root, the source or cause of all that is displeasing to God.

在这里,根与果子是人简单的呈现。根,是不讨 神喜悦的来源或原因(译者有些 不解)。

Three tree model 三种树模型

Proverbs 4:23 箴 4:23

“23 Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.“

Cross – All of God’s work in Christ for us 十字架——上帝在基督里为我们所成就的一切

Not merely the death of Jesus on the cross – the whole gospel of His life, death, resurrection with how the Bible interprets and applies it. All of God’s provision for us, including the Bible, God’s people, the church, Shepherds (pastors)

全备的福音在圣经中得以诠释与运用,这全备的福音不仅仅是耶稣在十字架 上的死——还有祂的生、死与复活, 神为我们所预备的一切,包括圣经、祂的子民、教会、牧者。
