Trotse Spraak en die heerlikheid van God

Inleiding

Ek is lief vir kinders. Een van die redes waarom ek is lief vir kinders is omdat hulle wys ons onsself. Hulle is soos klein spieëls. Laat ek jou vertel wat ek bedoel. Kinders het pretty much al die dieselfde probleme wat ons het, maar die probleme is net 'n baie meer voor die hand liggend, want hulle weet nie hoe om dit te verberg nog. Dit is regtig duidelik wanneer die hele gesin dinge wat hulle is nie veronderstel om dit te doen.

Het jy al ooit 'n kind raak iets wat hulle is nie veronderstel om te raak gesien? Hulle sal kyk rond om te sien of jy op soek is. Hulle gee nie om as 'n ander kind is op soek na; Hulle wil net nie volwassenes of ouers om te sien. Hoekom doen hulle dit, alhoewel? Omdat hulle weet dat jy in beheer, en hulle wil nie hê jy om uit te vind, want hulle weet jy is die een wat hulle het om te antwoord op.

Volwassenes is op dieselfde manier. Dikwels ons OK met dinge wat ons nie veronderstel is om te doen nie, solank die persoon moet ons antwoord op nie uitvind. Jy is bly om te versnel totdat jy sien die polisie voor. Miskien is ons bly om werk vroeg solank ons ​​baas nie uitvind verlaat. Maybe some of us cheat on tests as long as the professor doesn’t catch us. We don’t usually care if people know we’re doing something wrong, tensy dit is die owerheid moet ons antwoord op.

in 1 Samuel 2, Hannah prays in response to the birth of her son Samuel. And in this prayer, Sy waarsku ander een spesifieke sonde nie om te pleeg, omdat hul regter kyk. Draai met my 1 Samuel hoofstuk 2, vers 3.

Moenie praat so trots of laat jou mond praat soos arrogansie, want die HERE is 'n God wat weet, en deur Hom dade beproef.
(1 Samuel 2:3)

In hierdie teks, Hannah waarsku ons teen trotse toespraak, because God will find out and He’ll hold us accountable for it. Dit is wat ek dink die belangrikste punt van hierdie vers is: If you talk proudly, jy het om te beantwoord aan God daarvoor.

We may be tempted to think our prideful words don’t matter much. But if you think your prideful words don’t matter, I’m afraid for you. They should matter to you, omdat hulle saak met God, and He’s the One you have to answer to. We won’t finally answer to our parents, of ons vriende, of ons predikante, maar aan God.

Met dit in gedagte, Ek wil 'n paar vrae te vra om die teks beter te verstaan.

vraag 1: Wat beteken dit om Trots Praat?

Dit beteken om jou woorde te gebruik om jouself te verhef.

agtergrond

Now typically we would think of self-exalting words as just simply bragging about how amazing we are, maar daar is baie maniere om met trots praat. En ek dink een van die maniere waarop Hannah in gedagte het is wat ons sien in hoofstuk 1.

Hannah was the wife of a man named Elkanah. She wasn’t his only wife though. Hy het nog 'n vrou met die naam van Peninna. Peninna het kinders gehad, maar Hanna was onvrugbaar. En Peninna het basies tart Hannah daaroor. En as gevolg van haar onvrugbaarheid en dit tart Hannah was bedroef, en sy sal huil.

Ek dink Peninna is 'n voorbeeld van die trotse toespraak Hannah waarsku ons teen. Peninna het nie net wys op die feit dat sy kinders gehad. Sy is nie net probeer om Hanna te herinner aan die feite. She was taunting her, boasting over her, tormenting her.

That just sounds like she’s being mean. How is it talking proudly? Well it seems like Peninnah was using this as a way to assert herself over Hannah. It seems like she was assuming that somehow her bearing of children made her better than Hannah, wat nie waar was. Scripture clearly says that children are a gift from the Lord. Peninnah was talking proudly, en sy sal moet beantwoord aan God daarvoor.

Maniere ons praat Trots

Of ons erken dit of nie, we all talk proudly and speak with arrogance in a variety of ways:

1. One obvious way is bragging about our accomplishments. Sometimes we can’t wait to tell others about what we have and what we’ve accomplished. Maar ons is nie wat God prys vir dit; the goal is making ourselves look better. I’ve caught myself doing this on many occasions. Miskien loop in 'n ou vriend en hulle my vra wat ek doen. Ek kan sê klop, maar ek wil eerder verwys na toekennings of ander prestasies.

2. Of hoe oor die dinge sê wat ons oor ander? Sometimes we slander others. Ons wil hulle te verf in 'n slegte lig, so ons sal goed lyk. Maybe at work we point out that a particular co-worker is pretty lazy, sodat mense die verskil tussen julle twee sal sien. Of miskien in plaas daarvan om genadig met ander, we’re self-righteous. We stand as a judge over them, want dit maak ons ​​beter voel oor ons geestelike prestasies. Dit is trotse toespraak.

3. Or sometimes even when we say good things. Maybe it’s a testimony on a Sunday night. It could be a gripping story about God’s work in a friend’s life, but your motives could be your glory instead of God’s. Or letting someone know you’ve been praying for them. Or teaching a Sunday School class. Even good things can be proud speech if your goal is exalting yourself.

Sommige van hierdie voorbeelde is meer voor die hand liggend as ander. So hoe weet jy as dit? Wat skei trots toespraak van verklaar feite? Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, in jou hart of die woorde self. En wanneer ons dit doen, Ons neem heerlikheid wat aan God behoort.

Jou woorde kan God erken, Maar wat van jou hart? Other people may not be able to tell the difference, but Hannah reminds us that the Lord is a God who knows. En as ons ons woorde gebruik om onsself te verhef, ons sal moet beantwoord om hom daarvoor.

In die teks vertel Hannah ons nie te trots praat, en dan vertel sy vir ons waarom: want die Here is 'n God wat weet en weeg dade.

vraag 2: Hoekom het ons om te antwoord op God vir Trotse Spraak?

Want dit is 'n aanval op sy eer.

As net een van daardie laaste twee frases is waar, it would change a lot. If God knew, maar was nie die regter, or if God was the judge but didn’t know. But the perfectly just Judge is also the all-knowing God. Nie net sal God vind, Hy luister. God is at all times tuned in to every conversation that’s happening. Almost like He has an infinite amount of security cameras placed in every square foot of the earth. Hy weet. En as ons val sy heerlikheid te stel met trots toespraak, Hy sal weet.

beroof God

As ek was in jou bankrekening te gaan, en neem geld en pas dit toe op my rekening, is dat die steel van? Of course it is. Ek neem iets wat behoort aan jou, en die toepassing daarvan vir myself. Ek kan nie enige van jou geld te gee myself sonder om dit van julle. En dit is verkeerd, want dit behoort aan jou.

Wanneer mense probeer om hulself te eer gee, they rob God of His. You cannot ascribe to yourself praise and glory, sonder om te steel van God. Pride is an attack on God’s glory. Hoekom? Because an overestimation of self comes from an underestimation of God. Laat my sê dat weer: 'n oorskatting van die self is afkomstig van 'n onderskatting van God. En soos ons sien in 1 Samuel 1, hierdie onderskatting van God, ook lei tot 'n onderskatting van ander. So dink ook met groot lof van onsself kom van denke te nederig van God, en lei tot denke te nederig van ander.

Peninna was verkeerd. Sy oorskat haarself deur 'haarself op die Soewereine troon, as if she opened her own womb. And we’re often guilty of the same. Ons dink ons ​​is die mense wat krediet moet kry vir daardie bevordering, of diegene goed gedra kinders, of ons finansiële situasie. Ja, God sal ons harde werk beloon, but that doesn’t guarantee anything. God’s will is the real deciding factor in every situation. Wat belangrik is, uiteindelik is nie ons krag, ons wysheid, of selfs ons getrouheid.

trotse Spraak

So pride is wrong. All of us have some pride in our hearts that we must fight. Wanneer jy dink in jou hart dat jy verdien eer, that itself is a sin. But prideful speech is taking it to another level. How could we, as sondige mens, het die vermetelheid gehad, nie net om te dink ons ​​is waardig van God se heerlikheid, maar om werklik te bied dit so om ander? To try to convince others to give us the glory that belongs to God alone. Talking proudly is like not only robbing someone, maar vertel almal daaroor en hulle aan te moedig om dieselfde te doen.

Die enigste ding is, God doesn’t need video footage to know you’re guilty. God will not tolerate human beings trying to rob Him of His glory and encouraging others to do the same. Daarom sê Hannah ons moet dit nie doen nie.

Trotse spraak pluk 'n stryd met God, which is why it’s inconsistent with the life of a believer. Soos ons gehoor het vanoggend, "God weerstaan ​​hoogmoediges,, maar gee Hy genade aan die nederiges. "

Aktes geweeg

As ons nie in Christus, ons trotse woorde, will be yet another reason for God to punish us. Our evil deeds will continue to help the overwhelming case against us. If you’re not in Christ, there is nothing more terrifying than an all-knowing Judge. So if you’re here tonight and you don’t Jesus, asseblief om Hom te ken. Bekeer julle van jul sondes, and throw yourself on His mercy. He was incredibly humble—humble enough to die so that sinners like you and me can live. Hy opgestaan ​​het uit die graf met allerhande kragtige dade, en oproepe mans om Hom te volg. Ons wil graag vir jou meer oor wat daarna praat.

Maar as Christene, wat beteken dit vir ons dade word geweeg? Every believer in this room will have to answer to God for every proud word they speak, but our judgment will be different. Christ has already taken our sins on the cross. But this warning should still impact the way we live. Wanneer ons voor God staan, our deeds will either testify to the fact that we’ve trusted in Christ or that we were too proud to trust in Christ alone.

ook, we want to please the Father. Of course He’s pleased with us in Christ, maar ons wil hê Hy moet tevrede wees met ons goeie werke wat uit die geloof kom in Christus. Ons wil ons liefdevolle God tevrede te stel.

Ons moet nie toelaat dat arrogante woorde van ons mond kom. En al het ons sal moet beantwoord aan God vir ons trotse toespraak, ons God moet loof dat ons sondes bedek is in Christus.

So as ons wil God verheerlik sal word deur ons spraak, hoe kan ons veg hierdie arrogante praat?

vraag 3: Hoe Moet Ons veg Trotse Spraak?

Ons doen dit deur hulle verbly in God.

Ons moet ons spraak kyk, but that’s not enough. It’s like telling someone with a cold the solution is just to hold their sneeze in. Geen, die siekte is wat gedoen moet word aangeval.

The proud heart rejoices in itself. But the humble heart rejoices in God. Kyk na die eerste woorde van gebed Hannah se in vers 1: “My heart rejoices in the Lord.” Hannah shows us the proper response to the Lord’s blessing. Nie net hulle verbly in wat die Here gegee het, maar in die Gewer Homself. Ons reaksie kan trots wees, maar in plaas daarvan moet dit nederigheid te produseer in ons, want ons ontvang 'n geskenk van God

God gives and takes away. God distributes and withholds. Maar Hy doen dit alles vir ons 'n goeie en Sy heerlikheid. We falter when we begin to depend on those things too much. Rejoicing in God kills both pride and hopelessness.

Hoe kan jy bly in God? Do what it takes to remind yourself who’s behind everything. Praise God when you receive that check. Dit is die rede waarom ons dank God voor ons kos. Remembering that it’s arrogant to assume our plans will always go forth. Sê Here bereid. Give glory to God when others congratulate you on your accomplishments. Moenie vir 'n oomblik laat jou hart krediet te neem. Kyk maar na jou trotse toespraak. Vind die wortels van trots in jou hart.

Afsluiting

Elke enkele een van ons gegee is 'n wonderlike geleentheid met mekaar woord wat ons praat. Ons kry ons woorde gebruik om die God wat ons gemaak verheerlik. Ons kry ons woorde gebruik om ander te help sien God vir die heerlike Here dat Hy.

So my encouragement is not to use your words to exalt yourself. In plaas daarvan, gebruik dit om te doen wat jy geskep is om op te roem nie-gee aan God. Dit het alles aan Hom behoort in elk geval.

Kom ons bid.

    This was a wonderful read. Even in our humility, we need to be careful that we are not doing to make men see that we are humble, which in itself is prideful.
    It explains why the Greek philosophers did not believe that humility was a virtue because many can fake it.
    Dankie dat U deel.

    I don’t mean to throw Trip under the bus or have any intention in starting a debate online. I only ask for clarification. I am a recent graduate looking for a job. How do we not speak proudly in a job interview where we have to in some way be comfortable about explaining the good achievements to possible employers?

    • Trip Leeantwoord

      Hey Jason
      You’re not throwing me under the bus bro! I think that’s a great question. As I said above, proud speech is when you use your words to exalt yourself. It’s when you refuse to acknowledge God as Sovereign and deserving of the glory.

      You can explain your achievements and convince someone you’d do a good job without robbing God of His glory (after all, our devotion to Him should lead us to work with excellence). You don’t have to sayto God be the gloryafter every sentence, but you should do it all with a humble posture recognizing God as the giver of all good gifts. There’s a big difference between humbly pointing to your competence or arrogantly boasting. Make sense?

      • Jesseantwoord

        How, in a culture that frowns upon Christian values being expressed, are we suppose to get, and hold an honest paying job, without our pride getting the best of us? I’m also not trying to throw you under the bus and find faults, but as a teenager who wants desperately to live anunashamed lifestyleand spread the gospel in everything they do, I also need a job. I think the problem is not being able to express our self at a workplace without the fear of being fired.

  7. Johnantwoord

    Jason,
    Like he said, speaking proudly isn’t just stating facts. It’s seeking to exalt yourself instead of God. You can convince someone you’d do a good job, without robbing God of the glory he deserves for your skill and excellent work

    I am having a hard time with this quote: “Wanneer jy dink in jou hart dat jy verdien eer, that itself is a sin.When I do something excellently, I desire a pat on the back, a word of encouragement, or some indication that my work is received as excellent. We praise athletes and sports teams tirelessly, and our entire world operates on awards and platforms that honor excellence. So how do I practically ‘deadenthis desire of mine when, eerlik, I don’t want to? I guess just by, in our hearts, acknowledging that our excellence and the work of our hands comes from Him, and attributing all accolades we receive to Him.

    I just want to take this opportunity to thank you (Trip Lee) for letting God use you to glorify him. Me and my wife really enjoy your music. Our favorite song of course is “Goeie ding”. I read that you discontinued making music to further pursue your ministry, is this true? We need more rappers like you bro.

  10. JBantwoord

    Trip I agree with most of everything you mentioned in this blog regarding the value of our words except the statement you made thatGod gives and takes away and he distributes and withholds”. God is 100% goeie! There is not an ounce of bad in him to try to do harm or take anything away from us. Satan steals (takes/withholds), kills, and destroys. We as believers (or non-believers) do it to ourselves by disobeying (or being ignorant of) the spiritual standard God has already set on the earth. God hates pride primarily because it causes a blockage to receive the full goodness he so dearly wants us to have which can give Satan (and his forces) legal right to come in and capitalize on our prideful ways. This is not hate speech or trying to talk down to you but an open dialogue which I believe is the benefit of a blog.

    • Trip Leeantwoord

      Hey JB
      Thanks for reading! And for your encouraging words. I agree with you that God is 100% goeie. There’s no doubt about that. But that doesn’t mean He doesn’t take away. What about Job 1:21? Some of what I said above was an exact quotation from that verse. “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.”

      So God does take away, and He’s still good. The beautiful thing is, God uses even bad things for good in the lives of His people. Romeine 8:28 is a good example of this. I may write a whole post on this so I can make it more clear. Thanks again for reading!

    Jesse,
    As Trip mentioned, God knows all. Whether you give God glory out loud or take credit for your accomplishments out loud, God knows who your heart is giving glory to. Speaking to God’s glory aloud can also be pride speech if your heart is not truly giving glory to God. When we constantly speak of God’s glory around nonbelievers, we are like Peninnah and the nonbelievers are like Hannah. As Christians we have a tendency to feel threatened when we cannot openly praise God. Among nonbelievers we are like Penenniah with a spiritual blessing instead of children and the nonbelievers are Hannah that are left without such blessings as Hannah was without children. What we feel is praise to God, is actually boasting of our blessings. We must be ready to give praise to God at all times but we must not forget about the lost souls who choose not be with Him. You can take recognition of your accomplishments and even take responsibility without taking glory away from God. You received those blessings because you chose to walk His path. Give God glory in your heart, gedagtes, and prayers. Your words are just that, woorde. Never lie either. If an interviewer were to ask how you’ve done the things you’ve done, use the word faith. Faith is your choice, by your choice God has chosen to bless you, by giving glory to god for those blessings He will continue to do so. On another note, if you are struggling to find work try to reach out to God even more.

    Dig that Trip. Appreciate the feedback bro but unfortunately we’ll have to agree to disagree on this one. Lol.. There is a verse in Job that statesGod gives and he takes awaybut it was the words of Job not God. Job was righteous and blameless in the sight of the Lord but the moment he spoke those words it came from an ignorant point of view of how he perceived God operated. Reading through the rest of Job (specifically chapters 38-41) God speaks to Job about how ignorant he has spoken of him and asks him questions regarding his assumptions. In Job 42:3 (NIRV) Job replied to God and said: “You asked me, ‘Who do you think you are to disagree with my plans? You do not know what you are talking about.I spoke about things I didn’t completely understand. I talked about things that were too wonderful for me to know.Then in the 6th verse Job said: “So I hate myself. I’m really sorry for what I said about you. That’s why I’m sitting in dust and ashes.After he repented that’s when things started to go real well for him again. God wanted him to see he didn’t take away all his stuff (it was Satan) and it was the fear Job displayed in the beginning of the book that allowed Satan access to enter his life. Trip I don’t want to make a show of our conversation on the ‘comment sectionso if you see necessary just contact my email for reply. I admire your talent and your heart to serve God man. Later
