To Know the Heart of the Pilot

To Know the Heart of the Pilot   明白你機師的心思

Three passengers share a row of seats in an airplane. As the plane is taxiing for takeoff, their conversation turns to the topic of the airplane pilot.
 
有三位乘客坐在機上的同一排座位上,當飛機開始滑行準備起飛時,他們的話題轉到了機師身上。
 
Stunningly, passenger “A” doesn’t believe one exists. “No one flies the plane. We are guided by a computer system in the terminal. This plane is an occupied drone.  Why should I believe otherwise? The cockpit door is closed. Who can know? There is no pilot.”
 
令人震驚的是,乘客A不相信有機師在飛機上。"沒有人在駕駛這架飛機。我們的飛機是由機場控制台的電腦在操縱的。這是一架被控制的無人駕駛飛機。座艙的門已經關上了,我還能相信什麼?誰會知道根本沒有機師!
 
Passenger “B” disagrees. “Oh, there is a pilot. Someone sits at the controls of the plane. But, once we take off, he takes a nap. He gets the plane in the air and then goes to sleep.”
 
乘客B不同意:“有一位機師,他坐在機艙控制室裡。但是飛機一起飛之後,他就可以小睡了。他只需要讓飛機起飛,然後他就可以睡覺了。
 
The third passenger is shocked by what she hears. “You don’t know what you are talking about. First, there is a pilot. Second, the pilot is alert, competent and kind. I know; he is my husband. He is seasoned and sensitive and has every intention of a successful flight. We are in good hands.”
 
第三位乘客對前位的話感到震驚:”你們根本不知道你們在說什麼!第一,機上有一位機師;第二,他非常地機智,有經驗,並且很仁慈。我知道這些,因為他就是我的丈夫。他不僅老練而且敏銳,並且定意每一次的航行都能成功地完成。我們可以相信他。

Three passengers. Three opinions. A plane with no pilot. A plane with a disengaged pilot. A plane with a seasoned and concerned pilot. Fast forward a few minutes. Turbulence shakes the plane like popcorn in a paper bag. Will the three passengers experience the flight in the same way? Of the three travelers, which is most prone to stay calm?
 
三位乘客有三種意見。乘客A認為沒機師,乘客B認為機師不用負太多責任;乘客C卻知道有一位老練而且細心注意每件事的機師。我們設想一下再過一些時候可能會有的情況:不穩定的氣流使飛機動盪不已,讓人好像是紙袋裡的爆米花。這三位乘客會不會有同樣的經歷和感受?在這三位乘客裡,誰的心情會感到最平靜?
 
Nothing is more important than the right view of God. Nothing. I’ve seen the wealthy and highly educated crumple like cowards at the face of death. I’ve seen the simple and humble take their final breath with a smile and a song. The difference? They knew the Pilot.
 
沒有任何事比明白神的看法更重要。沒有任何事!我看過十分富裕和受過高等教育的人,在面臨死亡時的崩潰。我也看過單純和卑微的人,在死前帶著微笑,唱著歌離去。他們為何有不同的表現,因為他們認識機師。
 
You need to know the heart of the pilot. That is why the story of Jesus is in the Bible. He is the only picture of God ever taken. To know Jesus, is to know God. To know God is to know: this flight gets bumpy, but the Pilot? He knows how to get us home.
 
你必須明白機師的心思。這就是為何聖經裡有耶穌的故事。祂是神唯一的顯像。認識耶穌,就是認識神。認識神,你便知道,不管行程會何等顛簸,但我們的機師一定會帶我們平安地回到家。
