Gebou om te spog Pt. 1

Niemand hou naam sparre. Jy weet wie ek praat. Die mense wat jy wil om te weet dat hulle mense wat jy waarskynlik wil weet weet. As ek dink "namedropper,"Daar is 'n man wat onmiddellik opkom. Ek het net ontmoet hom 'n handvol van die tye, maar elke keer as ons het gepraat, helfte van ons gesprek is opgeneem met blatante naam druppels.

Hy weet 'n goeie aantal "big time" mense, en hy het 'n absurde vermoë om daardie name sluip in 'n gesprek. Hier is 'n voorbeeld. ek sê, "Hey man, hoe laat is dit?"Sy antwoord: "O, dit gaan oor die middag. Herinner my aan daardie tyd het ek gespeel putt putt met Michael Jackson op die middag in Parys. "Woord?

eerlik, dit is nie net noem sparre wat ons al irk. Dit is mense wat spog oor die algemeen. Ons moeg van verhoor volwasse mans spog oor hul hoërskool sokker dae (dit is tyd om aan te beweeg, Sir). Ons moeg van ons bevoorreg vriende wat een of ander manier te tweet oor elke eksotiese plek wat hulle besoek vind. En ons het nie baie geduld vir mense wat detail vir ons elke duur item hulle koop (tensy hulle rappers, natuurlik). Of dit nou geheim spog oor wat jy weet, of onbeskaamd uit te wys al jou prestasies, spog net nie koel.

stop spog

eenvoudig gestel, om te spog is om "praat Trots." En almal van ons het skuldig aan dit was op 'n stadium. Dit ontlok altyd 'n oog rol wanneer ander dit doen - so hoekom doen ons nog deel te neem in dit self?

Spog gebeur wanneer jy iets het (of iets te doen) so amazing dat jy dink almal moet weet. En nie net doen wat hulle nodig het om te weet oor dit, wat hulle nodig het om te erken hoe ontsagwekkende jy vir die feit dat (of doen) Dit. As ons eerlik met onsself, Ons noem druppel en nederige spog met ons vriende, want ons voel dit vir ons goed lyk. En dit is presies die rede waarom dit is verkeerd.

Die probleem is nie dat dit wat jy spog oor is nie 'n groot. Dit kan wees. Die probleem is dat die einddoel is nie so 'n groot. Enigiets wat jy doen ter wille van persoonlike eer is sonde.

Die Skrif praat mooi sterk oor hierdie soort grootpraters praat. Een voorbeeld is in 1 Kor 4:7, waarin vra Paulus, "Wat het jy wat jy nie ontvang het nie? En as jy dit dan ontvang dit, waarom roem jy asof jy dit nie gedoen het?"Hy basies sê, "Alles wat jy het is wat aan jou gegee. So hoekom sou jy spog wanneer alles wat jy gedoen het, was aanvaar 'n geskenk?"

Elke grootpraters woord wat ons uiter is 'n skoot direk gerig is op ons Skepper. Allerhande kosbare goed kom van Hom, wat beteken niemand van ons kan die krediet te neem vir dit. Al die eer in die heelal behoort aan God, maar ons is voortdurend probeer om 'n paar vir onsself te hou. In die akademiese wêreld, neem krediet vir die werk van iemand anders se heet plagiaat. In die werklike wêreld, dit genoem spog.

begin spog

Wel, dit gaan lê dit dan, reg? nooit, ooit spog!

Ek dink nie dis heeltemal so eenvoudig. Nie net het ek dink jy moet soms spog, Ek dink dit is wat jy is geskep om te doen. Laat ek verduidelik.

onthou, die wortel van spog dink iets wat jy het is so amazing dat almal moet weet. Diegene van ons wat het al verlos het deur Jesus het nie iets om te spog oor - God self. As ons weet dat God, Ons moet dus weg geblaas deur Hom wat ons voel verplig om sy deugde te verkondig aan ander (1 troeteldier. 2:9). Hy is te groot om te hou om onsself. Jeremia 9:23-24 som dit goed.

Dit is wat die Here sê:
"Laat die wyse hom nie beroem op sy wysheid laat
of die sterk man spog sy krag
of die ryk man spog sy rykdom,
maar laat hom wat spog spog oor hierdie:
dat hy verstaan ​​en My ken,
dat Ek die Here, wat oefeninge vriendelikheid,
reg en geregtigheid op die aarde,
want in dié ék verlustig,"
declares the Lord.

As jy weet God, Ek wil hê jy moet spog. Maar wanneer jy dit doen, don’t let it be in jou wysheid, of jou strength, of jou riches. In plaas daarvan, spog oor sy. Roem in die feit dat jy weet die een met volmaakte wysheid, almagtige krag, en nimmereindigende rykdom van genade. In plaas van die gebruik van jou woorde om jou eie roem verwerf, gebruik dit om te wys af Sy.

Die Heelal is soos 'n vertoonkas vir God se glorie. Die Aarde is geskep om Sy krag te toon. Bome is gevorm om sy skoonheid swaai. Diere is gemaak om te wys op Sy grootheid. En jy? Jy is gebou om te spog oor hom. So as jy dit doen laat val 'n naam, laat dit dan wees Sy.

    HEY TRIP!!!

    I have something HUGE to share with you!! so, I follow these two 18 year old Christians on YouTube, Instagram&Twitter and A MONTH and TWO DAYS ago, they said that they were told by God to leave NC and go to Los Angeles. They arrived yesterday!!!! GREATEST PART?!! They left NC with SIXTEEN dollars, a back pack and their faith and started WALKING!!! Along the way, they were given bikes, then food, shelter, rides &finances to help on their journey. And they didn’t even ask for it!!!!! People would just come up to them and give. Like they could see the spirit of God all over them!! They recorded vids on the way on YouTube and posted photos on Instagram and they keep us up to date on their twitter as well. Their YouTube hasn’t been updated in a week but they still have MARVELOUS testimonies shared on there from throughout the journey and they update their twitter and Instagram almost DAILY. Just wanted to spread this with you so that you could spread this great news of Faith. Maybe you can even get in contact with them and TRY THEIR SPIRITS. These men of God are legit. AMAZING TESTIMONIES. Lets spread the good news!

    Yes as God’s children we are built to brag about His awesome power, lief, mercy and especially His grace. The Lord says, If any man boasts let Him boasts in the Lord. The word Swag means also to boast or brag which is a prideful thing to do when you make it all about you. When it comes to swag, the world sets the standard, they tell people whats the trend or what is cool or not. Being a Christian is not the most popular thing to be in society these days, but it surely is the most vital. As a Christian its perfect for us to have swag, the best swag, and thats a Godly Swagg which simply means to boast in the Lord God. In our walk, our talk, and through our music we boast and brag on the Lord Jesus Christ because through the cross we have become products of His Grace and it is our life’s mission to win more souls through the preaching of the Gospel of grace.

    I often do this; brag. It’s more a reflection of the pride we keep on top of our softened hearts. For some reason giving God the glory in front of non-believers can be difficult but only because of pride.
    Recently I scored very high when I re-took the ASVAB. I was so excited because I knew God had helped me do it. His favor was what gave me that score and the knowledge He put in me helped me to truly understand mathematical equations I never could comprehend before. Yet when I got back to my unit I told everyone what I got with excitement but later I felt convicted because I knew I’d only told those I knew were believers that it was all God. The unbelievers I never told my testimony.
    I do jail ministry on Sundays and it’s weird because when I’m in front of them I could care less if they think I’m a fanatic then when I’m at work I hardly ever bring up the name. Everyone knows I’m a Christian but none of them have any clue how He’s all that’s on my mind 24/7.
    I’ll work on this. Dankie dat U deel.

    Trip , God Bless you man !
    This was needed as a reminder and for that I thank you, allowing God to use you to minister. We defiantly have the best thing to brag about.

    That’s good stuff, Trip… Everything we have was given to us by an Outstanding and Awesome Creator God who’s worth bragging about!

  18. Isakantwoord

    I am so amazed at the way you inter-related the old and new testatment to help us understand the danger of braging on ourselves!! Is this the inspiration for your recent trackBrangin on my God”???

    I love your music coz its so relevant!! God seën jou!! Hou aan met die goeie werk!!

    Onthou die haweloses Christene Ek het julle oor? Hulle het hulp nodig.. Enige hulp sal groot wees ouens. God sal voorsien, maar selfs Jesus kon nie die werke doen waar daar geen geloof was. Almal in LA draai hulle rug as gevolg van hulle gebrek aan geloof. Kom ons die koninkryk ondersteun en gee wat ons kan. Hulle doen ook musiek en die Gees praat regtig in hul lirieke. Kom ons versprei dat sowel! Ons doen dit vir die koninkryk y'all. e-pos livin4christ4lyfe@gmail.com .. Kom ons help die broers. Lief vir julle.
