MY TESTIMONY 我的见证

I want to share my testimony of how I came to know God. I am just an ordinary person, who

knows God loves him and has saved him through HIS precious grace

我想和你们分享我的见证,关于我是如何知道上帝的。我是一个非常普通的人,但是我知道

上帝是爱我的,他通过珍贵的恩典救赎了我。

 

The greatest gifts that God has given me, are HIS salvation.. story outlined below and

also my beloved wife Helen and precious daughter Ming.

上帝赐予我的最好的礼物就是他的救恩,下面是一些经历,还有我可爱的妻子海伦

和珍贵的女儿明。

 

I am British and they are Chinese, and although we come from different cultures, our love

is strong. They are my heart and are so wonderful and amazing. They are my precious

jewels.. my beloved and our little one, who bring so much joy, love and pleasure into

my life.

我是英国人,她们是中国人;虽然我们来自于不同的文化,但是我们的爱是非常坚韧的。

她们是我的心脏,她们是如此的美好和精彩。她们是我的珍宝。我们的小家伙给我的生活

带来如此之多的欢喜,爱,和荣幸。

If any of you wish to stop reading now, that is your decision, but if you read on, you

will hear sincerely from my heart.

如果现在有谁不想再读下去了,那是你的决定;但是如果你继续读下去,你会听到更

多我真诚的心声。

Maybe at the end you will say.. well that's great for you Keith, but it's not for me..

again your decision.

最后你也许会说,KEITH那对你非常好,但是这不单单是为我自己,

再次声明你自己的决定。

But God is so real and precious to me.. I say like the Apostle Paul.. that I am not

ashamed of the Gospel Of Christ

对于我来说上帝是如此的真实和宝贵,就像使徒保罗,我不会为传基

督福音而觉得羞愧。

My Testimony 我的见证

Well I was born in Bradford in the UK.. many years ago!!

很多很多~~年前我出生在英国的布莱德福德

When I was 5 I moved to Morecambe with my parents as they started a new

job running a council owned retirement home.

当我5岁的时候我随父母搬家去了莫科姆,因为我父母开始了一个新的工作,

运营一间由理事会所有的养老院

I was sent to church and Sunday school every week, under heavy protest.. I only went because

we got Sunday school prizes and sweets.

虽然强烈的抗议,但是每个星期我都会被送到教会和星期天主日学;我之所以去是因为在星期天主日学我会拿到一些小的奖励和甜品

My Favourite hymn back then was There is a Green Hill Far away, but I knew

nothing of the reality of Knowing Christ.

那个时候我最喜欢的歌就是《有一个遥远的绿山》

(1906年英国发行的一首非常好听的唱诗班圣歌),

但是现实中我对基督一无所知。

Although I sang it with passion.. I had no awareness of the living personal truth of it.

I then went to another church, that was more of a social club to be honest.

虽然我满怀热情的唱这首歌,但是我并没有意识到这个真实存在的人的事实。

后来我去了另外一个教会,严格说起来更像是一个社交俱乐部。

Meanwhile at school things got worse, I was placed in the worst class, this was the class for

people considered to be educationally slow and not likely to take exams.

与此同时我学校的成绩越来越差,我被分配到一个很不好的班级,这个班级是专门给那

些被认为学习迟缓和不喜欢考试的孩子的。

My Parents fought very hard for me to be moved to a better class and after two terms or

semesters, I was placed in Class 4S. Now in that class was a fellow pupil

called Andrew, who was a

Christian. I had seen him about, but had taken no notice of him.

I owe Andrew a great debt

of gratitude.. thanks to my oldest friend.

我父母为了把我转到一个好一点的班级花费了好大的力气,两个学期后我被分配到了4S的班级。

在这个班级里有一个学生叫安德烈,他是一个基督徒。我见过他但是已经没有联系他了,

我欠他一个大大的恩情,感谢我这个老朋友。

 

I was known for being the school clown, always pestering people, well I started to do this to

Andrew, but he didn't respond, this upset me even more and I became determined

to upset him.

我在学校是出名的小丑,经常去找别人麻烦,我最开始就是找安德烈的麻烦,

但是他却不理睬我。这使得我非常的不开心,而且下决心要让他不开心。

This went on for quite a few months, He was really getting to me, he had something different,

I had never seen this before and it fascinated me. There were also a couple

of Christian teachers

in the school, who were different.. I didn't understand why ( thanks John and Ruth)..

these two

had fallen in love whilst at school and got married.. and are still happily married today..

school romance is usually about pupils.. our school was different!!!!!

这种情况持续了几个月,他引起了我的注意,他是有些与众不同的,

是我从前没有遇到过的并且深深的吸引了我。在学校里还有几个基督徒的老师,

他们也是与众不同的;我并不明白为什么(感谢约翰和露丝)这一对在学校时就在一

起谈恋爱之后并结婚,并且直到今天依然是一个很幸福的婚姻。学校里的浪漫一

般是未成年人的,但是我们学校不同!

Well Andrew kept on at me, inviting me to some meetings on Saturday night.. OK I said.. But I

want to be home for the Football at 10pm.

安德烈还是继续跟着我,他邀请我去一些星期六晚上的聚会...我答应了,但是我很希望在家看晚上10点的橄榄球赛。

 

So one Saturday, I set off for Lancaster to Moorlands Gospel Hall.. a trip on the bus of

20 minutes and Andrew met me at the bus station and we walked up to the meeting place.

一个星期六,我去了兰开斯特沼泽福音堂,坐公交要20分钟左右,安德烈在车站等我,

然后我们一起走路去聚会的地方。

 

The place was crowded.. songs were sung .. and then this man came to speak.. His Name was

Victor Jack.. He spoke on Hell and what would happen if you died tonight.. if you did..

where would you go.?

For the first time, I became truly aware that I was a sinner before a Holy God, but also that

God had provided a solution to my sin problem and that was Jesus.

这个地方很多人,一直在唱歌,然后来了一个男人讲道,他的名字叫维克特 杰克。

他讲的是关于地狱和如果今晚一个人死了会发生什么,会去哪里?

这是第一次我真正的意识到在圣洁的上帝面前我是一个罪人,但是同时上帝也为了

我的罪恶的问题提供了一个解决方案,那就是基督。

I thought I was a good person, after all I lived in a christian country, lived in a good home, went

to church and had never killed anyone, but the standards I had, were not God's perfect standard

我一直认为我是一个好人,我生活在一个基督教的国家,我成长在一个好的家庭,我去参加教会,从未杀过人;但是我所拥有的这些标准并不是上帝给我们的完美标准。

You see my friend.. Man has a problem. I had a problem that night.. you have a problem right now..

and that is you are alienated from God because of your sin.. there is a vast chasm separating

you from God. But the chasm is no longer there as the Cross of Calvary has provided the answer..

but the question is.. will you accept and trust that perfect sacrifice that Jesus made?

你看我的朋友,人类有一个问题,我那天晚上有一个问题;现在你也有一个问题。

因为你的罪让你与上帝疏远了,在你与上帝之间有一个巨大的鸿沟。但是现在这个鸿沟不存在了,

因为伽利略山的十架给了我们一个回答。那现在的问题就是:你愿意接受并且相

信基督所做的牺牲吗?

At the end of the meeting the speaker said I am going into a side room, if anyone wants to come

and see me there, they can become a christian, well all I can remember is closing my eyes and it

was like a curtain going up on a stage, the light was suddenly turned on. I turned to Andrew

and said 'I'm going in that room', his face lit up, I don't think he could believe it.

We arrived at the room, just before someone else, if they had got in first, I don't think I would

of carried it through.

在聚会的结尾,讲道的那个人说我现在去到旁边一个房间里,如果有谁愿意过来见我他们可以成为基督徒。我所能记得的一切就是我闭着眼,就像舞台上的幕帘拉起来一样,灯光一下子就打开了。我转向安德烈对他说:“我要去那个房间。”他的脸一下子变了,我知道他不敢相信这一切。

我们来到那个房间,就比其他人早了一步,如果他们先到了,我想我不能承受那一切。

Victor took me through the book Journey Into Life and at the end of the book, there is a prayer,

prayed it and meant it. I knew that My sin had been dealt with because of what Jesus had done on

the cross for me.

维克特带领我翻到书《在生命的旅程》的最后,那有一个祷告,我诚心的向它祷告。我知道我的罪恶已经被耶稣十字架上的救恩洗刷了。

Mr Scott our form teacher had said to Andrew, Keith will never be saved, he is beyond

redemption, I suppose it proves that no-one is beyond God's redeeming grace.

我们学校的一个老师斯科特先生曾经对安德烈说过,Keith永远也不会得救因为他离赎回太远了。我想这正证明了在上帝的救恩面前没有人是太远的。

 

The changes were not instant and indeed took time, my word. The Lord has had some patience

with me, of all his children, I think that I must be the most disobedient one, but ever since that

night ,God has held me through my wanderings, through all mistakes and those have been

many.

God's love is the most amazing thing you can ever experience.

我的这些改变不是瞬间的,它花费了很长的时间。上帝对我赋予了足够的耐心。我想我是他众多孩子中最不听话的一个,但是自从那天晚上,上帝一路扶持我走过了很多我的疑惑,困惑,错误。

上帝的爱是你能所感受到的最惊奇的经历。

Becoming a christian is not about saying a prayer or even going to church, if you go to Mcdonald's

a lot, would that make you a hamburger? If you pray all day, does thsat make you a christian.. NO

成为一名基督徒不是单单祷告甚至是去教会,就比如说如果你经常去麦当劳会让你成为一个汉堡吗?如果你一整天都在祷告,那会让你成为基督徒吗?

不会的。

Becoming a christian, is a life changing experience, because it changes the heart. It takes

repentance and faith in finished work of Christ on the cross, where God's mercy, grace, wrath

and love all came together.

成为基督徒是一个人生的改变经历,因为他是改变我们的心。他用基督在十字架上完成的忏悔和信仰,那里有上帝融合在一起的怜悯,恩典,愤怒,和爱。

Now at age 57, Yes I am that old.. lol. I can now say that God is truly faithful, HE has brought me through so much. He alone is my love, my delight , my joy and my life.

现在我57岁了,是的我很老了。我可以说上帝是真实可以信靠的,他赐予了我非常多,他是我的爱,我的明灯,我的欢喜,我的人生。

 

A final word.. you may disregard this as the rantings of a deluded person.. but the same

transforming experience, the same thing that happened to me, has happened to millions through the ages and is still happening today..

My Favourite hymn and the one that sums up my life is.. AMAZING GRACE

最后想说,作为一个迷惑的人你可能不同意这些,但是在我身上发生的转变,我所经历的一切,今天同样继续发生在成千上万的人身上

我最喜欢的歌和激励我人生的一首歌就是:奇异恩典

These words are the story of my life, I hope and pray that you can say them also

这些就是我的故事,我希望并且祷告你也可以说出你的

http://www.constitution.org/col/amazing_grace.htm

Christianity is the only faith that promises life transformation.. why don't you try it for yourself?

基督教是唯一一个信仰保证你人生的转变,为什么你自己不尝试一下呢?

Thank you for sharing this. I love hearing/reading testimonies of my brothers and sisters in Christ. Isn't it amazing how much God has done with you since you received Christ!

 

(I still have Peter's family on my prayer list. I know this has been a difficult time for you all.)
