内置吹牛铂. 2

飞人乔丹是偶像. 我没有穿太多的成长,虽然, 因为我的父母不肯给我买了贵的离谱鞋. 我不喜欢它, 但我知道我会不会把我的手一对. 所以我被迫应付 - 假装它们不存在. 这是一个漫长的几年试图说服自己,锐步交叉训练都是时尚. 但是,当我老了, 我意识到乔丹是不容忽视. 我所有的朋友有一个对或两, 和我的一个朋友是彻头彻尾沉迷其中.

当一种新的风格就出来了, 他不会只由当地Foot Locker的停止,当他有一些空闲时间; 他建立了他的生活越来越周围的一双新. 他确信,他知道所有乔丹发布日期, 他会购买不同颜色的同一鞋款, and he would often spend Saturday mornings camped out in front of shoe stores. 它吹我的脑海里. 所以最后我不得不问自己, “有什么特别之处这双鞋?! 显然我错过了一些东西。”

我的朋友与乔丹痴迷发言. 无论是真的还是假的, 他说,很清楚,这双鞋是值得重新安排你的生活. 什么样的声明确实你的生活使?

你在说什么?

在我的 最后发表的帖子, 我认为我们自己的,我们应该用我们的话上帝夸耀,而不是. 我走得更远, 说,上帝使我们正是由于这个原因. 但我不认为我们的吹牛应该仅限于我们的话. 我们不仅要在吹牛主与我们的嘴唇, 我们也应该在吹嘘他与我们的生活.

你所做的一切使上帝声明. 你吃的每顿饭, 每次您试, every hour you work says something about your Creator. So even if you choose to keep your mouth closed about Him, 你的生活方式仍然有大量的说. 问题是: 你在说什么?

好的作品的天哪

在他最著名的讲道, 耶稣说,这: “让别人在你的光芒闪耀, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” (马修 5:16).

耶稣告诉他的听众住明亮的生活, 全在别人面前优秀作品. 不过你注意到他不说, “让人们看到基督徒如何惊人的是,”我们的目标不是我们的荣耀, 但其他人会“将荣耀归给 [我们的] 父亲是谁在天堂。“我们的好作品总是指向我们的好神.

想想吧. 这是什么说的上帝,如果我们是谁对待其他人一样垃圾自私的人? 这是什么沟通围观? 它不仅说,上帝的创造是毫无价值, 但它也传达了我们是宇宙的中心. 无论这些事情是真实的, 而我们基本上卧谈上帝给他人.

但是,如果不是, 我们惊人地无私奠定了我们的生活下来我们的邻居? 如果我们给了慷慨地帮助满足他人的需要? 这是否有什么样的说法神? 它传达我们不是宇宙的中心,有什么东西盛大住我们的生活. 它显示了神的创造是要珍惜, 而且,我们要爱别人,因为我们已经通过爱他.

你做的每一个决定是为镜面的机会, 反映你的设备的善良. 每二是要监视的机会, showcasing snapshots of His glory. And when those around us catch glimpses of that goodness, 我们得到告诉他们,我们光只是朦胧反映他.

事实是, 与我们的生活和我们的嘴唇吹牛齐头并进. 如果我们只与我们的生活吹牛, 人们可能认为我们只是很好的人. 他们不会知道是谁迫使我们住这样的好生活. 如果我们的话称上帝是惊人的, 但我们的生活说,否则, 我们的要求失去信誉. 我们必须既.

讲清楚

请问您的生活说上帝伟大的事情? 你聪明的保险杠贴纸和基督教的纹身是不够的. 什么是你的支票簿说? 做什么的互动与别人说? 什么是您的工作伦理说? 我知道我必须每天悔改未能在他吹嘘自己是我应该的. 神首先是至高无上, 所以当我生活的方式,让他看起来小我生活在谎言.

有什么在宇宙中比滥交更有价值, 或职位晋升, 或一对乔丹的? 当然有. 确保您的生活使说清楚. 它可能看起来像一个艰巨的任务, 但不要担心 - 你建吧.

    Great perspective for us 80s and 90s kids who remember the Jordan era vividly. 不幸, 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, 对? 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 other “不错 & serving” 人?

    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!!! 感谢分享!!!

    感谢这个! Your insights are encouraging and convicting. I def don’t give God the credit with my mouth as I am called to do. Good to see the Word in that we are called to boast…那是一件好事!

    This site is amazing ,very encouraging. Will be sharing your sermons with our youth. Your music has already inspired them, to have another way to give them God’s word that they will be receptive to is always such a blessing. Thank you for answering the call. 上帝保佑.
