內置吹牛鉑. 2

飛人喬丹是偶像. 我沒有穿太多的成長,雖然, 因為我的父母不肯給我買了貴的離譜鞋. 我不喜歡它, 但我知道我會不會把我的手一對. 所以我被迫應付 - 假裝它們不存在. 這是一個漫長的幾年試圖說服自己,銳步交叉訓練都是時尚. 但是,當我老了, 我意識到喬丹是不容忽視. 我所有的朋友有一個對或兩, 和我的一個朋友是徹頭徹尾沉迷其中.

當一種新的風格就出來了, 他不會只由當地Foot Locker的停止,當他有一些空閒時間; 他建立了他的生活越來越周圍的一雙新. 他確信,他知道所有喬丹發布日期, 他會購買不同顏色的同一鞋款, and he would often spend Saturday mornings camped out in front of shoe stores. 它吹我的腦海裡. 所以最後我不得不問自己, “有什麼特別之處這雙鞋?! 顯然我錯過了一些東西。”

我的朋友與喬丹痴迷發言. 無論是真的還是假的, 他說,很清楚,這雙鞋是值得重新安排你的生活. 什麼樣的聲明確實你的生活使?

你在說什麼?

在我的 最後發表的帖子, 我認為我們自己的,我們應該用我們的話上帝誇耀,而不是. 我走得更遠, 說,上帝使我們正是由於這個原因. 但我不認為我們的吹牛應該僅限於我們的話. 我們不僅要在吹牛主與我們的嘴唇, 我們也應該在吹噓他與我們的生活.

你所做的一切使上帝聲明. 你吃的每頓飯, 每次您試, 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說. 問題是: 你在說什麼?

好的作品的天哪

在他最著名的講道, 耶穌說,這: “讓別人在你的光芒閃耀, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” (馬修 5:16).

耶穌告訴他的聽眾住明亮的生活, 全在別人面前優秀作品. 不過你注意到他不說, “讓人們看到基督徒如何驚人的是,”我們的目標不是我們的榮耀, 但其他人會“將榮耀歸給 [我們的] 父親是誰在天堂。“我們的好作品總是指向我們的好神.

想想吧. 這是什麼說的上帝,如果我們是誰對待其他人一樣垃圾自私的人? 這是什麼溝通圍觀? 它不僅說,上帝的創造是毫無價值, 但它也傳達了我們是宇宙的中心. 無論這些事情是真實的, 而我們基本上臥談上帝給他人.

但是,如果不是, 我們驚人地無私奠定了我們的生活下來我們的鄰居? 如果我們給了慷慨地幫助滿足他人的需要? 這是否有什麼樣的說法神? 它傳達我們不是宇宙的中心,有什麼東西盛大住我們的生活. 它顯示了神的創造是要珍惜, 而且,我們要愛別人,因為我們已經通過愛他.

你做的每一個決定是為鏡面的機會, 反映你的設備的善良. 每二是要監視的機會, showcasing snapshots of His glory. And when those around us catch glimpses of that goodness, 我們得到告訴他們,我們光只是朦朧反映他.

事實是, 與我們的生活和我們的嘴唇吹牛齊頭並進. 如果我們只與我們的生活吹牛, 人們可能認為我們只是很好的人. 他們不會知道是誰迫使我們住這樣的好生活. 如果我們的話稱上帝是驚人的, 但我們的生活說,否則, 我們的要求失去信譽. 我們必須既.

講清楚

請問您的生活說上帝偉大的事情? 你聰明的保險槓貼紙和基督教的紋身是不夠的. 什麼是你的支票簿說? 做什麼的互動與別人說? 什麼是您的工作倫理說? 我知道我必須每天悔改未能在他吹噓自己是我應該的. 神首先是至高無上, 所以當我生活的方式,讓他看起來小我生活在謊言.

有什麼在宇宙中比濫交更有價值, 或職位晉升, 或一對喬丹的? 當然有. 確保您的生活使說清楚. 它可能看起來像一個艱鉅的任務, 但不要擔心 - 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, 對? 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 “不錯 & 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!!! 感謝分享!!!

    感謝這個! 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.
