Living with Purpose

第四十天 目的导向的人生

Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails. Proverbs 19:21 (NIV)

人心有许多计划;却只有主的目的才能成就

(箴言十九章21节,NIV)

For David ... served the purpose of God in his own generation.

Acts 13:36 (NASB)

Living on purpose is the only way to really live. Everything else is just existing.

为人生目的而活是惟一真正生活的方法,否则只是生存而已。

Most people struggle with three basic issues in life. The first is identity: "Who am I?" The second is importance: "Do I matter?" The third is impact: "What is my place in life?" The answers to all three questions are found in God's five purposes for you.

很多人为人生三个基本问题而挣扎。第一是自我认同:“我是谁?'第二是重要性:“我重要吗?'第三是影响力:“我在生命中有何地位?'这些答案可以在神给你的五个目的中找到。

In the Upper Room, as Jesus was concluding his last day of ministry with his disciples, he washed their feet as an example and said, "Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them." Once you know what God wants you to do, the blessing comes in actually doing it. As the come to the end of our forty-day journey together, now that you know God's purposes for your life, you will be blessed if you do them!

主耶稣被钉在十架的一天,在楼上为门徒洗脚,并对他们说:“你们既知道这事,若是去行就有福了。”你一旦知道神要你做什么,当你真正去做时,祝福就临到。四十天的目的导向之旅即将结束,现在你已明白神对你生命的目的,若去行便蒙福。

This probably means you will have to stop doing some other things. There are many "good" things you can do with your life, but God's purposes are the five essentials you must do. Unfortunately, it's easy to get distracted and forget what is most important. It's easy to drift away from what matters most and slowly get off course. To prevent this, you should develop a purpose statement for your life and then review it regularly.

这或许意味着你要停止做一些其他的事情。人生有很多'美好'的事你可以去做,但神的目的是五个你一定要做的事。很可惜,我们很容易分心,忘了什么是最重要的。要防止这事发生,你必须写下人生的目的宣言,并定期回头反省。

WHAT IS A LIFE PURPOSE STATEMENT?

什么是人生目的宣言?

It's a statement that summarizes God's purposes for your life.

目的宣言是神对你人生目的的摘要

In your own words you affirm your commitment to God's five purposes for your life. A purpose statement is not a list of goals. Goals are temporary; purposes are eternal. The Bible says, "His plans endure forever; his purposes last eternally."

用你自己的话,誓言对神给你的五个人生目的的委身。目的宣言并非目标清单。目标是短暂的,目的却是永远的。圣经说:“他的计划永远坚立,他的旨意万代常存。”

It's a statement that points the direction of your life.

目的宣言指引你人生的方向

Writing down your purposes on paper

will force you to think specifically about the path of your life. The Bible says, "Know where you



are headed, and you will stay on solid ground." A life purpose statement not only spells out what you intend to do with your time, life, and money, but also implies what you aren't going to do. Proverbs says, "An intelligent person aims at wise action, but a fool starts off in many directions."

在纸上写下你的人生目的,迫使你特别去思想你的人生路径。圣经说:“知道你要往哪里去,你就能脚踏实地。”人生目的宣言不仅说出你要用你的时间、生命、金钱去做什么,也指出你不做什么。箴言说:“聪明人目标放在智慧的行动上,愚昧人却以追逐许多方向来开始。”

It's a statement that defines "success" for you.

目的宣言为你定义'成功'

It states what you believe is important, not

what the world says is important. It clarifies your values. Paul said, "I want you to understand what really matters.'

这宣言说出你相信什么是重要的,而不是世界说什么是重要的。这宣言定义你的价值观。保罗说:“我要你们了解什么是真正重要的。”

It's a statement that clarifies your roles.

目的宣言理清你的角色

You will have different roles at different stages in

life, but your purposes will never change. They are greater than any role you will have.

在人生不同的阶段你会有不同的角色,但你的人生目的却应永远不变,它比你任何的角色更重要。

It's a statement that expresses your shape.

目的宣言表达你的特色(SHAPE)

It reflects the unique ways God made you to serve him.

它反映神用独特方法塑造你,使你能服事他。

Take your time writing out your life purpose statement. Don't try to complete it in a single setting, and don't aim for perfection in your first draft; just write down your thoughts as fast as they come to you. It is always easier to edit than to create. Here are five questions you should consider as you prepare your statement:

用点时间写下你人生目的宣言,不要一次完成,也不要想第一次就必须完美。只要灵感一到,便立即写下来。修改总比创作来得容易。当你准备你的人生目的宣言时,有五个问题你应当思考:

LIFE'S FIVE GREATEST QUESTIONS

人生的五个最重要的问题

What will be the center of my life?

什么是我生命的中心?

This is the question of worship. Who are you going to live for? What are you going to build your life around? You can center your life around your career, your family, a sport or hobby, money, having fun, or many other activities. These are all good things, but they don't belong at the center of your life. None is strong enough to hold you together when life starts breaking apart. You need an unshakable center.

这是敬拜的问题。你要为谁而活?你的生命以什么为中心来建造?你可以将你的生命以职业、家庭、嗜好、金钱、享乐或其他活动来建造。这些都是好的,但不是你生命的中心。当生命遭遇巨变时,这些事物都不能强壮到足以支撑你。你需要一个永不动摇的中心支柱。

King Asa told the people of Judah to "center their lives in God.' Actually, whatever is at the center of your life is your god. When you committed your life to Christ, he moved into the center, but you must keep him there through worship. Paul says, "I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts."

亚撒王命令犹大百姓:“......生命以神为中心。”事实上,任何在你生命中心的,就是你的'神'。当你将生命交托给基督,他搬进你生命的中心,但只有透过敬拜,才能让基督继续保持他在你心中的地位。保罗说:“我祈求基督.....扎根建基地住在你们心里。”

How do you know when God is at the center of your life? When God's at the center, you

worship. When he's not, you worry. Worry is the warning light that God has been shoved to the sideline. The moment you put him back at the center, you will have peace again. The Bible says, "A sense of God's wholeness ... will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life."

你怎知道神是你生命的中心?当神在中心时,你会敬拜;当他不在中心时, 你会挂念。挂念是一个警讯,显示神已被推到一旁。当你将神放回中心时,你会立时感到平安。圣经说:“你会感受到神的整体......临到你身上,当主基督取代挂念,成为你生命的中心时,出人意外的美好事便会发生。”

What will be the character of my life?

什么是我生命的品格?

This is the question of discipleship. What kind of

person will you be? God is far more interested in what you are than what you do. Remember, you will take your character into eternity, but not your career. Make a list of the character qualities you want to work on and develop in your life. You might begin with the fruit of the Spirit or the Beatitudes.

这是门徒训练的问题。你将会是个怎能样的人?神关心你是怎样的人多过于你做什么。请记住,你不能带着你的职业上天堂,但你却要带着你的品格进入永恒。写下你希望可以培养的品格特质。你或许可以考虑从'圣灵的果子'或登山宝训的'八福'品德开始。

Peter said, "Don't lose a minute in building on what you've been given, complementing your basic faith with good character, spiritual understanding, alert discipline, passionate patience, reverent wonder, warm friendliness, and generous love." Don't get discouraged and give up when you stumble. It takes a lifetime to build Christ-like character. Paul told Timothy, "Keep a firm



grasp on both your character and your teaching. Don't be diverted. Just keep at it."

彼得说:“你们要分外殷勤,在你拥有的恩赐外,更要建立信心,美德、属灵知识、自制、忍耐、敬虔、友爱和博爱。”当你失脚跌倒时,不要灰心丧志而放弃,建立像基督的品格是一生的功课。保罗对提摩太说:“你要紧紧保守你的品格并留心自己的教训,在这些事上不要偏离,只要坚持下去。”

What will be the contribution of my life?

什么是我生命的贡献?

This is the question of service. What will be your ministry in the Body of Christ? Knowing your combination of spiritual gifts, heart, abilities, personality, and experiences (SHAPE), what would be your best role in the family of God? How can you make a difference? Is there a specific group in the Body that I am shaped to serve? Paul pointed out two wonderful benefits when you fulfill your ministry: "This service you perform not only meets the needs of God's people, but also produces an outpouring of gratitude to God."

这是服事的问题。你在基督身体里的事工是什么?了解自己在属灵恩赐、心性、才能、个性和经验的组合(即你的特色SHAPE),什么是你在神家里最适合的角色?你要如何作出有影响力的改变?在这身体里,是否有哪一个特别的群体是我的特色可以服事的?保罗指出当你完成你的事工时,会有两个好处:“你们所做的事,不但供应了信徒的需要,也使许多人越发感谢神。”

While you are shaped to serve others, even Jesus didn't meet the needs of everyone while on earth. You have to choose whom you can best help, based on your shape. You need to ask, "Who do I have a desire to help most?" Jesus said, "I commissioned you to go out and to bear fruit, fruit that will last." Each of us bears different fruit.

虽然你被塑造去服事,但即使是耶稣在地上时也没有满足每一个人的需要。你必须根据你的特色去选择谁是你最能服事的对象。你要问:“我最想要帮助谁?'耶稣说:“......我差派你们去结那常存的果子。”我们每人所结的果子都不同。

What will be the communication of my life?

什么是我的人生信息?

This is the question of your mission to unbelievers. Your mission statement is a part of your life purpose statement. It should include your commitment to share your testimony and the Good News with others. You should also list the life lessons and godly passions you feel God has given you to share with the world. As you grow in Christ, God may give you a special target group of people to focus on reaching. Be sure to add this to your statement.

这是你对未信者的使命的问题。你的使命宣言是你的人生目的宣言的一部分,应包括你委身向人分享见证与神的好消息。你也应该要列出人生功课,以及神给你向世界分享的神圣热情。当你在基督里成长时,神可能会给你一个特别的目标群体,让你向他们传福音。要记得将这一点写在你的宣言内。

If you are a parent, part of your mission is to raise your children to know Christ, to help them understand his purposes for their lives, and to send them out on their mission in the world. You might include Joshua's statement in yours: "As for me and my family, we will serve the LORD."

假若你为人父母,你的使命之一就是教养儿女认识基督,让他们明白神在他们生命中的目的,差派他们在世上做宣教工作。你的宣言可以包括约书亚所说的话:“至于我和我家,我们必定事奉耶和华。”

When God's at the center of your life, you worship. When he's not, you worry.

Of course, our lives must support and validate the message we communicate. Before most unbelievers accept the Bible as credible they want to know that we are credible. That is why the Bible says. `Be sure that you live in a way that brings honor to the Good News of Christ."

当然,我们的生活要能支持并印证我们要传出的人生信息。未信者先要认为我们是可信的,他们才会接受圣经的可信性,所以圣经说:“你们行事为人要为基督的福音带来荣耀。”

What will be the community of my life?

什么是我生命中的群体?

This is the question of fellowship. How will you demonstrate your commitment to other believers and connection to the family of God? Where will you practice the "one another" commands with other Christians? To which church family will you be joined as a functioning member? The more you mature, the more you will love the Body of Christ and want to sacrifice for it. The Bible says, "Christ loved the church and gave his life

for it." You should include an expression of your love for God's church in your statement.

这是团契相交的问题。你要如何表明你对其他信徒以及与神家的连结?你要在何处与其他信徒实行'彼此'的命令?你要加入哪个教会家庭作一个有功用的成员?你越成熟便越爱基督的身体,并愿意为之牺牲。圣经说:“......基督爱教会,为教会舍己。”你应该将你对神的教会的爱纳人你的宣言中。

As you consider your answers to these questions, include any Scriptures that speak to you about each of these purposes. There are many in this book. It may take you weeks or months to craft your life purpose statement just the way you want it. Pray, think about it, talk with close friends, and reflect on Scripture. You may go through several rewrites before you get to your final form. Even then, you will probably make minor changes as time goes by and God gives you more insight into your own shape. If you would like to see some examples from other people, just email me (see appendix 2).

当你思考回答这五个问题时,记下任何说到有关这五个目的的经文。在这本书上有许多经文。你可能要花几个星期,甚至几个月的时间去构思人生目的宣言。祷告,再加上思索、与挚友商讨、默想神的话语。你可能要不断修改重写才能产生最后的宣言。就算是最后的版本,你还是可能因着神给你的洞见或对自己特色的认识,而作出修订。你若想要以别人的宣言为范本,请写信给我(请看附录2)。

In addition to writing a detailed life purpose statement, it is also helpful to have a shorter



statement or slogan that summarizes the five purposes for your life in a way that's memorable and inspires you. Then you can remind yourself daily. Solomon advised, "It will be good to keep these things in mind so that you are ready to repeat them." Here are a few examples:

除了写下详细的人生目的宣言,亦可以写成较短的版本,或口号来总括你的五个人生目的,以方便记忆和激励自己,并可成为每天的提醒。所罗门建议:“若能够牢记在心里,随时引用,那是再好没有的。”以下是一些例子:

• "My life purpose is to worship Christ with my heart, serve him with my shape, fellowship with his family, grow like him in character, and fulfill his mission in the world so he receives glory."

我的人生目的是用心灵敬拜基督,用我的恩赐和特色去事奉他,与神家里的人有团契相交,成长像基督的品格,在世上完成他的宣教使命,让他得着荣耀。

• "My life purpose is to be a member of Christ's family, a model of his character, a minister of his grace, a messenger of his word, and a magnifier of his glory."

我的人生目的是成为基督家庭的成员,作基督品格的榜样,主恩典的施与者,神话语的使者,和他荣耀的彰显者。

• "My life purpose is to love Christ, grow in Christ, share Christ, and serve Christ through his church, and to lead my family and others to do the same.

我的人生目的是要爱基督,在基督里成长,与人分享基督,透过教会服事基督,引领家人和其他人同行此路。

• "My life purpose is to make a great commitment to the Great Commandment and the Great

Commission."

我的人生目的是致力委身于'大诫命'和'大使命'。

• "My goal is Christlikeness; my family is the church; my ministry is ; my mission is ; my motive is the glory of God."

我的目标是像基督,我的家就是教会,我的事工是 ——-,我的使命是——,我的动机是为荣耀神。

You may wonder, "What about God's will for my job or marriage or where I'm supposed to live or go to school?" Honestly, these are secondary issues in your life, and there may be multiple possibilities that would all be in God's will for you. What matters most is that you fulfill God's eternal purposes regardless of where you live or work or whom you marry. Those decisions should support your purposes. The Bible says, "Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD'S purpose that prevails." Focus on God's purposes for your life, not your plans, since that's what will last forever.

你可能想知道'神在我的工作、婚姻上的旨意是什么?我应在哪里居住或上学?'老实说,这是生命中次要的问题,或许有多种可能,但都是出于神对你的旨意。无论你住在哪里、在哪里工作、与谁结婚,最重要的是完成神在你生命中的永恒计划。那些快定应该要能支持你的人生目的。圣经说:“人心有许多计划;却只有主的目的才能成就。”专注于神对你人生的目的,而不是你的计划,因为惟有他的目的会永远长存。

I once heard the suggestion that you develop your life purpose statement based on what you would like other people to say about you at your funeral. Imagine your perfect eulogy, then build your statement on that. Frankly, that's a bad plan. At the end of your life it isn't going to matter at all what other people say about you. The only thing that will matter is what God says about you. The Bible says, "Our purpose is to please God, not people."

我曾听过一个建议说,你应根据你希望人们在你的喪礼上说什么,来建立你的人生目的宣言。想像你那完美的颂词,然后据此写下你的宣言。坦白说,这实在是个坏主意。在你人生的终结,别人对你怎应说将不重要,惟一重要的是,神对你怎么说。圣经说:“我们的目的是要取悦神,不是取悦人。”

One day God will review your answers to these life questions. Did you put Jesus at the center of your life? Did you develop his character? Did you devote your life to serving others? Did you communicate his message and fulfill his mission? Did you love and participate in his family? These are the only issues that will count. As Paul said, "Our goal is to measure up to God's plan for us."

有一天,神要检阅你对这些生命问题的答案。你是否让基督成为你生命的中心?你是否建立了他的品格?你是否奉献生命于服事别人?你是否述说他的信息,完成他的使命?你是否爱教会、参与在他的家中?这些是惟一重要的事。正如保罗所说:“我们的目的是满足神对我们的计划。”

GOD WANTS TO USE YOU

神要使用你

About thirty years ago, I noticed a little phrase in Acts 13:36 that forever altered the direction of my life. It was only seven words but, like the stamp of a searing hot branding iron, my life was permanently marked by these words: "David served God's purpose in his generation." Now I understood why God called David "a man after my own heart." David dedicated his life to fulfilling God's purposes on earth.

大约三十年前,我注意到使徒行传十三章36节的一句话,这句话永远地改变了我的人生。这句话只有几个字,却像冒着烟的烙印,我的生命永远地被烙上这几个字:“大卫在他的世代服事了神的旨意。”(David Served God's Purpose in his generation.)我终于明白了神为何称大卫为'合我心意的人'。大卫献上他的一生,完成神给他在世上的使命。

There is no greater epitaph than that statement! Imagine it chiseled on your tombstone: That

you served God's purpose in your generation. My prayer is that people will be able to say that



about me when I die. It is also my prayer that people will say it about you, too. That is why I

wrote this book for you.

再没有任何碑文比这个宣言更伟大!试想你的墓碑上刻着:“你在你的世代服事了神的旨意。”我祈求当我离世时,别人会用这句话来形容我的生命。这亦是我对你的期待,也是我写这本书的原因。

This phrase is the ultimate definition of a life well lived. You do the eternal and timeless (God's purpose) in a contemporary and timely way (in your generation). That is what the purpose-driven life is all about. Neither past nor future generations can serve God's purpose in this generation. Only we can. Like Esther, God created you `for such a time as this."

这句话是卓越人生的最终定义。你以这短暂、有限的方式(在你的世代),完成永恒无限的伟业(神的目的)。这就是目的导向的人生。过去与将来的人都不能在这个世代中服事神的旨意,只有你能。像以斯贴一样,神造你是为了'现今的机会'。

God is still looking for people to use. The Bible says, "The eyes of the LORD search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him." Will you be a person God can use for his purposes? Will you serve God's purpose in your generation?

神仍在寻找合用的人,圣经说:“耶和华的眼目遍察全地,一心归向他的,他必以大能扶助他们。”你是神能用来满足他目的的人吗?你愿意在你的世代服事神的旨意吗?

Paul lived a purpose-driven life. He said, "I run straight to the goal with purpose in every step." His only reason for living was to fulfill the purposes God had for him. He said, "For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain." Paul was not afraid of either living or dying. Either way, he would fulfill God's purposes. He couldn't lose!

保罗活出一个目的导向的人生。他说:“我直奔标竿,每一步都带着目的。”他活着的惟一原因是满足神对他的目的。他说:“因我活着就是基督,我死了就有益处。”保罗不怕生死,无论怎样,他要完成神的目的,他不可能输!

One day history will come to a close, but eternity will go on forever. William Carey said, "The future is as bright as the promises of God." When fulfilling your purposes seems tough, don't give in to discouragement. Remember your reward, which will last forever. The Bible says, "For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all."

有一天历史会终结,但永恒却会延续。克理威廉(William Care)说:未来的日子像神的应许一样光明!'当实行你的目的显得艰困时,不要灰心放弃。记著你得到的奖赏,将永远长存。圣经说:“我们这至暂至轻的苦楚,要为我们成就极重无比、永远的荣耀。”

你今天就能开始以目的为生。

Imagine what it is going to be like one day, with all of us standing before the throne of God

presenting our lives in deep gratitude and praise to Christ. Together we will say, "Worthy, Oh Master! Yes, our God! Take the glory! the honor! the power! You created it all; It was created because you wanted it!" We will praise him for his plan and live for his purposes forever!

试想有一天,我们站在神的宝座前,以感恩和赞美将我们的生命献予神,这会是什么样子。我们同声说:“我们的主,我们的神,你是配得荣耀、尊贵、权柄的;因为你创造了万物,并且万物是因为你的旨意被创造而有的。”我们因着他的计划永远赞美他,并为他的目的而活!

DAY FORTY THINKING ABOUT MY PURPOSE

第40天 我的人生目的省思

Point to Ponder: Living with purpose is the only way to really live.

思想要点:过有目的的人生才是真正生活的惟一之道。

Verse to Remember: "For David ... served the purpose of God in his own generation." Acts 13:36 (NASB)

背记经文:“大卫在他的世代服事了神的旨意。”(使徒行传十章36节上,NASB)

Question to Consider: When will I take the time to write down my answers to life's five great questions? When will I put my purpose on paper?

思考问题:什么时候我愿意花时间写下我对人生五个重要问题的答案?什么时候我会将我的人生目的写在纸上?
