Mibnija Biex Brag Pt. 1

Ħadd ma jħobb droppers isem. Inti taf min jien jitkellem dwar. Dawk in-nies li jixtiequ li tkun taf li jkunu jafu n-nies li inti probabilment trid tkun taf. Meta naħseb "namedropper,"Hemm wieħed Guy li immedjatament tiġi f'moħħna. Stajt biss met lilu ftit ta 'drabi, imma kull darba li konna tkellimna, nofs ta 'konversazzjoni tagħna hija inkluża bi qtar isem sfaċċat.

Jaf numru tajjeb ta 'nies "big time", u hu għandu abbiltà assurd li Sneak dawk l-ismijiet fi kwalunkwe konverżazzjoni. Hawn eżempju. I say, "Raġel ħej, x'ħin hu?"Ir-risposta tiegħu: "Oh, it’s about noon. Reminds me of that time I played putt putt with Michael Jackson at noon in Paris.” Word?

onestament, huwa mhux biss insemmu qattara li irk magħna għalkemm. Huwa nies li brag b'mod ġenerali. Nikbru għajjien ta 'rġiel smigħ mkabbra brag dwar ġurnata tagħhom tal-futbol l-iskola għolja (wasal iż-żmien li wieħed jimxi fuq, sir). We grow weary of our privileged friends that find some way to tweet about every exotic place they visit. U aħna ma jkollhomx ħafna paċenzja għal nies li dettall għalina kull oġġett jiswa li jixtru (sakemm dawn qed rappers, Dażgur). Jekk huwa covertly bragging dwar min int taf, jew unashamedly fakkret kisbiet kollha tiegħek, bragging biss mhuwiex jibred.

stop Bragging

Fi kliem sempliċi, li brag hija li "nitkellmu boastfully." U lkoll kienu ħatja ta 'dan f'xi punt. Hija dejjem jipprovoka għajnejk roll meta oħrajn ma jagħmlux dan - hekk għaliex aħna xorta jieħdu sehem fiha nfusna?

Bragging jiġri meta jkollok xi ħaġa (jew tagħmel xi ħaġa) hekk aqwa li inti taħseb li kulħadd jeħtieġ li tkun taf dwar dan. U mhux biss għandhom bżonn li jkunu jafu dwar dan, jeħtieġ li jirrikonoxxu kif biża int talli (jew tagħmel) dan. Jekk aħna qed onesti ma lilna nfusna, aħna isem qatra u brag umli lill-ħbieb tagħna għaliex aħna naħsbu li jagħmilna ħarsa tajba. U dan huwa eżattament għaliex huwa ħażin.

Il-problema mhix li dak li qed bragging dwar mhix kbira. Jista 'jkun. Il-problema hija li l-objettiv aħħari ma tkunx daqshekk kbira. Xi ħaġa li tagħmel għall-fini tal-glorja personali huwa dnub.

Iskrittura titkellem pjuttost qawwi dwar dan it-tip ta 'diskussjoni boastful. Eżempju wieħed huwa 1 Korintin 4:7, fejn Paul jitlob, "What do ikollok li inti ma jirċievu? U jekk inti ma tirċievi dan, għaliex taħseb niftaħar daqslikieku inti ma?"Hu bażikament tgħid, "Kollox għandek ingħata lilek. Allura għaliex kieku inti brag meta kull ma għamilt kienet taċċetta rigal?"

Kull kelma boastful aħna utter huwa maqtul mmirata direttament lejn Maker tagħna. Kull ħaġa tajba ġej minn Alla, li jfisser ħadd minna jista 'jieħu l-kreditu għaliha. L-glorja fl-Univers tappartjeni lil Alla, imma aħna qed dejjem jippruvaw iżommu xi għalina. Fid-dinja akkademika, bi kreditu għal xogħol xi ħadd ieħor huwa msejjaħ plaġjariżmu. Fid-dinja reali, huwa msejjaħ bragging.

Bidu Bragging

Ukoll li tissetilja mbagħad, dritt? qatt, qatt brag!

Ma naħsibx li huwa pjuttost li sempliċi. Mhux biss do naħseb għandek brag kultant, Naħseb li huwa dak li inti kienu maħluqa biex jagħmlu. Let me explain.

Ftakar, l-għerq tal bragging huwa ħsieb xi ħaġa li għandek huwa tant aqwa li kulħadd jeħtieġ li tkun taf dwar dan. Dawk minna li kont qed jissarfu mill Ġesù do jkollhom xi ħaġa li brag dwar - Alla nnifsu. Jekk nafu Alla, għandna nkunu hekk minfuħa bogħod mill lilu li aħna jħossu kostrett li jipproklama Eċċellenzi Tiegħu lill-oħrajn (1 pet. 2:9). Hu kbir wisq biex iżommu lilna nfusna. Jeremiah 9:23-24 somom it up ukoll.

Dan huwa dak li l-Mulej jghid:
"Ejja mhux il-bniedem għaqli niftaħar ta 'għerf tiegħu
jew ir-raġel b'saħħtu niftaħar ta 'saħħa tiegħu
jew ir-raġel għani jiftaħar ta 'għana tiegħu,
iżda let lilu li tiftaħar jiftaħar dwar dan:
li hu jifhem u jaf lili,
li jiena l-Mulej, li jeżerċita kindness,
ġustizzja u t-tjieba fuq l-art,
għal f'dawn I delight,"
declares the Lord.

Jekk inti taf Alla, Nixtieq li brag. Imma meta inti tagħmel, don’t let it be in tiegħek għerf, jew tiegħek strength, jew tiegħek għana. minflok, brag dwar Tiegħu. Jiftaħar fil-fatt li inti taf l-waħda mal-għerf perfetta, saħħa jista 'kollox, u jispiċċa qatt għana tal-grazzja. Minflok tuża kliem tiegħek biex jakkwistaw fama tiegħek stess, jużawhom biex juru off Tiegħu.

L-Univers huwa bħal display każ għall-glorja ta 'Alla. Id-Dinja kien maħluq biex juru qawwa Tiegħu. Siġar ġew iffurmati biex flaunt sbuħija Tiegħu. Annimali kienu crafted għall-punt li greatness Tiegħu. U inti? You kienu mibnija biex brag dwar lilu. Mela jekk inti tagħmel qatra isem, ħalliha tkun Tiegħu.

  2. Justin HumphreyTweġiba

    Thanks 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!! Allura, 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, imħabba, 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 “mibnija biex brag” 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.

  11. broChrisTweġiba

    Great thought provoking read Mr. Trip. 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. Alla jbierek, #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. Grazzi għall-qsim.

  16. AlejandroTweġiba

    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.

  17. BrantPhelpsTweġiba

    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. IsaacTweġiba

    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 bless inti!! Żomm l-ħidma tajba!!

  19. JayTweġiba

    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.
