Bygget Til Brag Pt. 1

Ingen kan lide navn pipetter. Du ved, hvem jeg taler om. De mennesker, der ønsker du at vide, at de kender folk, som du sikkert ønsker at vide. Når jeg tænker "namedropper,"Der er en fyr, der umiddelbart kommer til at tænke. Jeg har kun mødt ham en håndfuld gange, men hver gang vi har talt, halvdelen af ​​vores samtale optages med åbenlyse navn dråber.

Han kender en god del af "big time" mennesker, og han har en absurd evne til at snige disse navne i enhver samtale. Her er et eksempel. jeg siger, "Hej mand, hvad er klokken?"Hans svar: "Oh, it’s about noon. Reminds me of that time I played putt putt with Michael Jackson at noon in Paris.” Word?

Ærligt talt, det er ikke bare nævne pipetter, der ærgre os selv. Det er mennesker, der praler generelt. Vi bliver trætte af at høre voksne mænd prale om deres high school fodbold dage (det er på tide at komme videre, hr). We grow weary of our privileged friends that find some way to tweet about every exotic place they visit. Og vi har ikke meget tålmodighed for folk, der detalje for os hver udgiftspost de køber (medmindre de er rappere, selvfølgelig). Uanset om det er skjulte praler hvem du kender, eller skamløst påpege alle dine resultater, prale bare ikke køligt.

Stop bragging

Kort fortalt, at prale er at "tale boastfully." Og alle af os har gjort sig skyldig i det på et tidspunkt. Det provokerer altid et øje roll, når andre gør det - så hvorfor gør vi stadig tage del i det selv?

Praleri sker, når du har noget (eller gøre noget) så forbløffende, at du tror, ​​alle har brug for at vide om det. Og ikke kun har de brug for at vide om det, de har brug for at erkende, hvordan awesome du er for at have (eller laver) det. Hvis vi er ærlige over for os selv, vi navngive drop og ydmyg prale til vores venner, fordi vi mener, det gør os se godt. Og det er præcis, hvorfor det er forkert.

Problemet er ikke, at det, du praler ikke er stor. Det kan være. Problemet er, at afslutningen mål er ikke så stor. Alt, hvad du gør for at skabe personlige herlighed er synd.

Skriften taler temmelig kraftigt om denne form for pralende snak. Et eksempel er i 1 Kor 4:7, hvori Paul spørger, "Hvad har du, at du ikke har modtaget? Og hvis du har modtaget det, hvorfor du prale som om du ikke gjorde?"Han har dybest set siger, "Alt hvad du har givet til dig. Så hvorfor skulle du prale når alle du gjorde var at acceptere en gave?"

Hver pralende ord, vi sige er et skud rettet direkte mod vores Maker. Enhver god ting kommer fra Ham, hvilket betyder ingen af ​​os kan tage æren for det. Alt herlighed i universet tilhører Gud, men vi forsøger hele tiden at holde nogle for os selv. I den akademiske verden, tage æren for en andens arbejde kaldes plagiat. I den virkelige verden, det hedder prale.

Start bragging

Nå der afvikler det derefter, højre? Aldrig, nogensinde prale!

Jeg tror ikke, det er helt så enkelt. Ikke alene har jeg synes du skal prale nogle gange, Jeg tror, ​​det er, hvad du blev skabt til at gøre. Lad mig forklare.

Huske, roden af ​​praleri tænker noget, du har, er så forbløffende, at alle har brug for at vide om det. De af os, der har været indløst af Jesus har noget at prale af - Gud selv. Hvis vi kender Gud, vi skal så blæst væk af ham, at vi føler sig tvunget til at forkynde hans excellencer til andre (1 Kæledyr. 2:9). Han er for stor til at holde for os selv. Jeremias 9:23-24 opsummerer det godt.

Dette er, hvad Herren siger:
"Lad ikke den kloge mand prale af sin visdom
eller den stærke mand prale af sin styrke
eller den rige mand prale af sin Rigdom,
men lad ham der kan prale prale om dette:
at han forstår og kender mig,
at jeg er Herren, som udøver venlighed,
Ret og Retfærdighed på Jorden,
i disse jeg glæde,"
declares the Lord.

Hvis du kender Gud, Jeg vil have dig til at prale. Men når du gør, don’t let it be in din visdom, eller din strength, eller din riches. I stedet, prale Hans. Prale i det faktum, at du kender One med perfekt visdom, almægtig styrke, og aldrig slutter rigdomme nåde. I stedet for at bruge dine ord til at erhverve din egen berømmelse, bruge dem til at vise Hans.

Universet er som en montre for Guds herlighed. Jorden blev skabt for at vise sin magt. Træer blev dannet for at flagre hans skønhed. Dyrene blev udformet til at pege på hans storhed. Og dig? Du blev bygget at prale på Ham. Så hvis du gør droppe et navn, lad det være Hans.

    Tak Trip. This is a really good point. Our personal achievements compared to God’s never ending grace are worthless. Let’s starting bragging about our Lord and Savior!

    HEY TRIP!!!

    I have something HUGE to share with you!! Så, 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, elsker, 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.

    Absolutely agree with you! I never thought of being “bygget til at prale” but you definitely convinced me. I very much enjoy reading your writing. Incredibly thought provoking but balanced with encouragement. Perfect mixture of the two!! Thanks for writing.

    So great to see Trip still speaking the truth even if it’s a medium different than music. That was a great read, I look forward to hearing more of it. Gud velsigne dig, Rejse.

  12. broChrisSvar

    Great thought provoking read Mr. Rejse. Many can take this to heart, and now into practice. Keep using the gifts God has given you, which now includes being a pretty great writer, and continue to share the message with those giftsit is reaching more than you’ll ever know. Gud bevare, #JesusIsKing

    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. Thanks for sharing.

    Rejse , 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.

  18. TiffanieSvar

    Det var fantastisk! Tak Trip. I love how your still dropping knowledge on us in a short amount of time :)

  19. BrantPhelpsSvar

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

  20. IsaacSvar

    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!! Gud velsigne dig!! Keep up the good work!!

  21. JaySvar

    Husk hjemløse kristne jeg fortalte jer om? De har brug for hjælp.. Enhver hjælp ville være store fyre. Gud vil give, men selv Jesus kunne ikke gøre værker, hvor der ikke var nogen tro. Alle i LA vender ryggen på grund af deres mangel på tro. Lad os støtte riget og give, hvad vi kan. De gør også musik og Ånden virkelig taler i deres tekster. Lader spredt, at så godt! Vi gør dette for riget y'all. E-mail livin4christ4lyfe@gmail.com .. Lad os hjælpe brødrene. Elsker jer alle.
