Gebaut Fir prahle PT. 1

Keen woell Numm Uelech. Dir wësst wien ech schwätze. Déi Leit, déi Dir wëllt wëssen, dass se Leit wëssen dass Dir wahrscheinlech wëssen wëllt. Wann ech mengen "namedropper,"Gëtt et ee guy dat direkt ze vergiessen kënnt. Ech hu sech him nëmmen eng begrenzten Zäit, mä all Kéier mir hu geschwat, Halschent vun eisem Gespréich ass mat bësschen Numm Drëpsen geholl an.

Hien kennt eng gutt Zuel vun "grouss Zäit" Leit, an hien huet eng Manipulatioun Fähegkeet deenen Nimm an all Gespréich ze Tipp. Hei ass e Beispill. ech soen, "Hey Mann, wéi vill Auer ass et?"Seng reply: "Oh, Et ass iwwer Mëttes. Erënnert mech vun där Zäit ech zoustänneg ass zoustänneg mat Michael Jackson um Mëtteg zu Paräis huet. "Wuert?

landen, et ass just net Uelech Numm datt eis wann irk. Et ass de Leit, déi am Allgemengen prahle. Mir kréien midd vun Clinique ugebaut Männer prahle hire Lycée football Deeg (et ass Zäit fir weiderzefueren, Monsieur). Mir wuessen midd vun eis privilegéiert Frënn dass puer Wee fannen iwwer all exotesch Plaz fir Jeffrey si bei. A mir hunn net vill Gedold fir Leit, déi am Detail fir eis all deier item se kaaft (ausser si rappers, natierlech). Ob et d'covertly fänks iwwer déi Dir wësst, oder unashamedly Virop aus all Är sien, just fänks ass net cool.

Stop fänks

einfach no, zu prahle ass un "boastfully schwätzen." An all vun eis hunn iergendwann schëlleg et schonn. Et provozéiert ëmmer en Aan Rouleau wann anerer dat maachen - also firwat do huelen mir nach Deel selwer an et?

Fänks geschitt wann Dir eppes hutt (oder eppes) sou erstaunlech, dass Dir denkt jiddereen brauch doriwwer ze wëssen. An net nëmmen do brauchen se doriwwer ze wëssen, se brauchen ze erkenne wéi fantastesch Dir sidd fir dass (oder maachen) et. Wa mer éierlech mat eis selwer, mir Numm rof a bescheiden prahle un eis Frënn, well mer mengen, et eis gutt mécht Wanterschlof. An datt d'genau firwat et falsch d'.

Den Problem ass net, datt wat s du fänks net grouss ass. Et kéint. De Problem ass, dass um Enn Schoss net esou grouss ass. Näischt dir fir d 'Wuel vu perséinlechen Herrlechkeet do ass Sënn.

Doriwwer schwätzt relativ staark un dëser Zort vun Téinert Diskussioun. Ee Beispill ass an 1 Korinther 4:7, zu deem Paul freet, "Wat hutt Dir dass Dir net gemaach kréien? A wann Dir et gemaach kréien, firwat do bretzen Dir wéi wann Dir net?"Hien huet d'beäntweren gesot, "Alles Dir hutt war fir Iech entscheet. Also firwat géif Dir prahle wann all Dir hutt akzeptéieren war e Cadeau?"

All Téinert Wuert leschter Sekonn mir ass e Schoss direkt op eis ofgesinn anzeschätzen. All gutt Saach hirkommen Him, dat heescht keent vun eis de Kredit fir et huelen kann. All d'Herrlechkeet an den Universum gehéiert zu Gott, mä mer versichen ëmmer e puer fir eis ze halen. An der akademescher Welt, Vereedegung Kredit fir Aarbecht senger Persoun ass genannt Iddien geklaut. An der real Welt, et genannt fänks.

Start fänks

Ma dat gëtt et dann, riets? ni, jee prahle!

Ech denke net, dat ass esou, datt einfach. Net nëmmen do, ech mengen dir sollt heiansdo prahle, Ech mengen, et ass dat, wat Dir geschaf goufen ze maachen. Loosst mech erklären.

erënneren, der Wuerzel vum fänks nodenkt eppes Dir hutt sou erstaunlech ass, dass jiddereen iwwert se wëssen, brauch. Déi vun ons, déi Strapp vum Jesus erléist hutt eppes ze prahle - Gott selwer. Wa mer wëssen, datt Gott, mir soll also vun Him geplatzt ewech datt mir Verenegong fillen Seng Exzellenzen fir anerer ze Revendikatioun (1 Déier. 2:9). Hien ass ze grouss, fir eis ze halen. Jeremiah 9:23-24 D`concernéiert et weider gutt.

Dat ass dat, wat den Här seet:
"Loosst net de schlau Mann vu senger Wäisheet bretzen
oder de staarke Mann bretzen vu senger Kraaft
oder de räiche Mann bretzen vu senger onendlecher,
mä loosse mer him dee fënnt iwwer dëst bretzen:
datt hie versteet a weess mech,
dass ech dem Här, déi regéiert Frëndlechkeet,
Gerechtegkeet a Gerechtegkeet op der Äerd,
fir an dësen Artikel Freed,"
declares the Lord.

Wann Dir wësst, Här, Ech wëll iech prahle. Mä wann Dir, don’t let it be in Är Wäisheet, oder Är strength, oder Är riches. amplaz, prahle Seng. Bretzen an de Fait, datt Dir d'One mat perfekt Wäisheet wëssen, all-mächteg Kraaft, an ni onendlecher Gnod gedronk. Amplaz Är Wierder vun Ärem eegenen Ruhm ze kréien, benotzen se Seng ze weisen ugefaangen.

Den Universum as wéi engem Ecran Fall fir Gott senger Herrlechkeet. Der Äerd war geschaf Seng Muecht ze weisen. Beem goufen seng Schéinheet ze un. Déieren sech donieft fir seng Gréisst ze Punkt. An du? Du waren op Him zu prahle gebaut. Also wann Dir e Numm Lëscht do, looss et sinn Seng.

    merci 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!! Also, 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, Léift, 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 “gebaut ze prahle” 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.

    I stumbled upon this article and boy, do I feel encouraged. So much to ponder from these words. It’s both an encouragement and a need to examine oneself and motive. Glory be to God for giving you the gift to write this!!!

    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. Gott soll dech seenen, Rees.

    Great thought provoking read Mr. Rees. 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.

    This was a great article, very well written, and I really loved the audio component you added to it. Thank you sir for sharing this.

    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. Merci fir alleguerten.

    Rees , 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.

  17. BrantPhelpsAntwort

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

  18. IsaacAntwort

    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!! Gott soll dech seenen!! Keep up the good work!!

  19. JayAntwort

    Remember the homeless Christians I told you guys about? They need help.. Any help would be great guys. God will provide but even Jesus couldn’t do works where there was no faith. Everyone in LA is turning their backs because of their lack of faith. Lets support the kingdom and give what we can. They also do music and the Spirit really speaks in their lyrics. Lets spread that as well! We do this for the kingdom y’all. Email livin4christ4lyfe@gmail.com .. Lets help the brethren. Love you all.
