Ua Kom khav Pt. 2

Cua Jordans yog iconic. Kuv tsis hnav lawv npaum li cas loj hlob tab sis yog, vim hais tias kuv niam kuv txiv tsis kam mus yuav kuv ridiculously kim khau. Kuv tsis nyiam nws, tab sis kuv paub kuv yuav tsis tau txais kuv txhais tes rau ntawm ib tug khub. Li ntawd, kuv twb yuam kom tiv - los ntawm ua piv txwv lawv tsis muaj. Nws yog ib tug ntev ob peb xyoos rau convince kuv tus kheej tias Reebok ntoo khaub lig trainers twb stylish. Tab sis raws li kuv tau txais laus, Kuv pom tau hais Jordans twb nyuaj rau las mees. Tag nrho kuv cov phooj ywg muaj ib tug khub los yog ob tug, thiab ib tug ntawm kuv cov phooj ywg tau downright obsessed nrog lawv.

Thaum ib tug tshiab style tuaj tawm, nws yuav tsis cia li nres ntawm lub zos ko taw chav rau khoom thaum nws muaj ib co dawb lub sij hawm; nws ua nws lub neej nyob ib ncig ntawm tau txais uas tshiab khub. Nws ua kom nws paub tag nrho cov Jordan tso tawm hnub, nws yuav yuav tus tib khau nyob rau hauv cov xim txawv, and he would often spend Saturday mornings camped out in front of shoe stores. Nws tag kuv lub siab. Yog li ntawd thaum kawg kuv yuav tsum tau nug kuv tus kheej, “Yuav ua li cas thiaj li tshwj xeeb txog cov khau?! Kom meej meej kuv nco tawm on ib yam dab tsi.”

Kuv tus phooj ywg xav xav tau nrog Jordans ua ib daim ntawv qhia. Seb tseeb los yog tsis, nws twb hais tias nrov thiab tseeb tias cov khau muaj nqis rearranging koj lub neej rau. Yuav ua li cas hom ntawm daim ntawv tsis koj lub neej ua?

Yuav ua li cas Yog Koj Hais?

Nyob rau hauv kuv tus ncej tas los, Kuv sib cav hais tias peb yuav tsum siv peb cov lus khav nyob rau hauv Vajtswv xwb ntawm peb tus kheej. Thiab kuv tau mus txawm ntxiv, hais tias Vajtswv ua peb rau cov uas heev yog vim li cas. Tab sis kuv tsis xav hais tias peb bragging yuav tsum tau tag rau peb cov lus. Tsis tsuas yog peb yuav tsum khav rau tus Tswv nrog peb daim di ncauj, peb yuav tsum tau khav rau Nws nrog peb lub neej.

Txhua yam uas koj ua ua rau ib daim ntawv qhia txog Vajtswv. Txhua txhua pluas noj koj noj, txhua txhua xeem koj coj, every hour you work says something about your Creator. So even if you choose to keep your mouth closed about Him, koj txoj kev ua neej tseem yuav muaj ntau hais. Cov lus nug no: dab tsi yog koj hais tias?

Tej hauj lwm zoo rau ib tug zoo Vajtswv

Nyob rau hauv nws nto moo tshaj plaws cov lus qhuab qhia, Yexus hais tias qhov no: "Cia koj lub teeb ci ua ntej lwm leej lwm tus, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” (Mathais 5:16).

Yexus hais rau nws listeners nyob kaj lub neej, tag nrho ntawm tej hauj lwm zoo ua ntej lwm leej lwm tus. Tab sis koj paub tias nws tsis hais, "Yog li ntawd hais tias cov neeg yuav pom yuav ua li cas amazing ntseeg yog." Lub hom phiaj tsis yog peb hwjchim ci ntsa iab, tab sis hais tias lwm tus neeg yuav "muab yeeb koob rau [peb] Leej Txiv uas yog nyob rau hauv Saum ntuj ceeb tsheej. "Peb tej hauj lwm zoo yeej ib txwm taw tes rau peb zoo Vajtswv.

Xav txog nws. Ua li cas nws hais tias hais txog Vajtswv yog hais tias peb nyob qia dub neeg uas zoo rau lwm tus ib yam li cov thoob khib nyiab? Li cas uas sib txuas lus rau rov pom Laxalau dua? Tsis tsuas yog tsis hais tias Vajtswv lub creation yog worthless, tiam sis nws kuj communicates tias peb nyob nraum qhov chaw ntawm lub ntug. Tsis yog tus twg ntawm cov neeg tej yam uas yog muaj tseeb, thiab peb nyob nraum yeej dag txog Vajtswv rau lwm tus neeg.

Tab sis li cas yog tsis, peb twb strikingly selfless thiab pw peb lub neej cia rau peb cov neeg nyob ze? Yuav ua li cas yog hais tias peb muab generously los pab raws li cov kev xav tau ntawm lwm tus? Yuav ua li cas hom ntawm daim ntawv ntawd hais li cas txog Vajtswv? Nws communicates uas peb nyob nraum tsis qhov chaw ntawm lub ntug thiab hais tias muaj ib yam dab tsi grand nyob peb lub neej rau. Nws qhia tau hais tias Vajtswv lub creation yog yuav tsum tau hlub, thiab hais tias peb xav hlub lwm tus li peb twb tau hlub los ntawm Nws.

Txhua qhov kev txiav txim koj ua yog ib lub sij hawm yuav tsum tau ib daim iav, xav lub siab zoo ntawm koj cov txiag. Txhua thib ob yog ib tug sij hawm los ua ib tug saib, showcasing snapshots of His glory. And when those around us catch glimpses of that goodness, peb tau mus qhia rau lawv tias peb lub teeb yog ib tug dim rog xav txog ntawm Nws.

Qhov tseeb yog, bragging nrog peb lub neej thiab peb daim di ncauj mus tes hauv tes. Yog hais tias peb tsuas khav nrog peb lub neej, cov neeg tej zaum yuav xav tias peb nyob nraum xwb zoo neeg. Lawv yuav tsis paub tias leej twg compels peb mus nyob xws zoo lub neej. Thiab yog hais tias peb cov lus hais tias Vajtswv yog amazing, tab sis peb lub neej hais tias tsis, peb neeg pab leg ntaubntawv poob credibility. Peb yuav tsum ua ob yam tib si.

Ua Nws Clear

Puas yog koj lub neej hais tias zoo yam uas hais txog Vajtswv? Koj ntse bumper niaj thiab Christian tattoo yog tsis txaus. Li cas koj checkbook hais? Yuav ua li cas koj sib tshuam nrog lwm leej lwm tus hais tias? Yuav ua li cas yog koj ua hauj lwm ethic hais? Kuv paub tias kuv yuav tau hloov siab lees txim txhua hnub ntawm tsis khav rau Nws raws li kuv yuav tsum. Vajtswv yog zoo tshaj plaws saum toj no tag nrho cov, ces thaum kuv nyob rau hauv ib txoj kev uas yuav ua rau Nws zoo me me kuv nyob ib cov lus dag.

Puas muaj dab tsi nyob rau hauv lub ntug ntau nqi tshaj xws li sib deev, los yog ib txoj hauj lwm nce qib, los yog ib tug khub ntawm Jordans? Ntawm cov hoob kawm muaj. Xyuas kom tseeb tias koj lub neej yuav ua rau meej. Tej zaum nws yuav zoo li zoo li ib tug daunting ua hauj lwm, tab sis tsis txhob txhawj - koj tau ua rau nws.

    Great perspective for us 80s and 90s kids who remember the Jordan era vividly. Tu siab, I still see some of that kid in me and many times don’t realize it until after I’ve reprioritized just enough of my life to make a mess of things. Praise the lord for his grace and forgiveness! Glad I ran across your blog, keep writing for Him.

    This is so touching. It really makes you wonder how much is God’s light really shinning through your life.
    Time for me to make a rain check and a good evaluation.
    Thank you Trip Lee <3

    Thanks is what I really struggle with, using my words to spread God’s glory. I like to let my actions do the talking, but that’s not enough and I’m becoming much more aware of that. Thanks for this and encouraging me to really go out there and spread His Word. I’m actually going out on my campus later to talk to people about Jesus. Gotta brag on Him!

    This is indeed a very tough subject. But what about Christianity is easy, txoj cai? The difficulty for me arises in living my life so that people see that it is the light of God shining and not just the light of another nice guy. Question for the community: What are a few nonverbals that we can incorporate so that people can differentiate our lives from the lives of othernice & serving” neeg?

    I am simply floored by GOD’s overwhelming conformation by way of your blog. In two separate occasions, we basically wrote about the same things. I’d love to share my writings with you. I even did the Jordan comparison and all!!!! As well as Matthew 5:16. Please let me know where I can share my own writings of self conviction. I indeed have a powerful responsibility of my pen and it is more evident after reading your blog!!! Tsaug rau sib koom!!!

    No longer will I let human nature dictate my behavior, but I will pray that my Maker, allows me to become more like my Savior
