خطاب بالفخر ومجد الله

المقدمة

أنا احب الأطفال. واحدة من الأسباب أنا أحب الأطفال لأنهم تبين لنا أنفسنا. انهم مثل المرايا الصغيرة. اسمحوا لي أن أقول لكم ما أعنيه. الاطفال لديهم الى حد كبير كل من نفس المشاكل التي نواجهها, ولكن هذه المشاكل ليست سوى الكثير أكثر وضوحا لأنهم لا يعرفون كيفية إخفائها بعد. وهذا واضح جدا عند الاطفال تفعل أشياء انهم ليس من المفترض أن تفعل.

هل سبق لك أن رأيت شيئا طفل مسة انهم ليس من المفترض أن تلمس? أنها سوف ننظر حولنا لمعرفة ما إذا كنت تبحث. أنهم لا يهتمون إذا طفل آخر هو يبحث; انهم فقط لا يريدون الكبار أو الآباء لمعرفة. لماذا يفعلون ذلك, رغم أن? لأنهم يعرفون كنت في تهمة, وأنهم لا يريدون لك لمعرفة لأنهم يعرفون أنك واحد لديهم للرد على.

الكبار هم بنفس الطريقة. في كثير من الأحيان نحن موافق مع القيام بأشياء نحن ليس من المفترض أن تفعل, طالما أن الشخص الذي يجب أن نجيب للا معرفة. كنت سعيدا لتسريع حتى تشاهد رجال الشرطة قبل. ربما نحن سعداء لترك العمل في وقت مبكر طالما رئيسنا لا معرفة. 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, إلا إذا كان سلطة لدينا للرد على.

في 1 صموئيل 2, Hannah prays in response to the birth of her son Samuel. And in this prayer, وهي تحذر الآخرين بعدم ارتكاب خطيئة واحدة بعينها, لأن القاضي من يراقب. تحويل معي ل 1 الفصل صموئيل 2, بيت شعر 3.

لا تبقي الحديث حتى بفخر أو السماح فمك يتكلم مثل هذه الغطرسة, لأن الرب هو الله الذي يعلم, وبه توزن الأعمال.
(1 صموئيل 2:3)

في هذا النص, هانا يحذرنا خطاب فخور, because God will find out and He’ll hold us accountable for it. هذا ما أعتقد أن النقطة الرئيسية في هذه الآية: If you talk proudly, سيكون لديك للرد على الله لذلك.

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, لأنها تهم الله, and He’s the One you have to answer to. We won’t finally answer to our parents, أو أصدقائنا, أو القساوسة لدينا, ولكن الى الله.

مع أخذ ذلك في الاعتبار, أريد أن أسأل بعض الأسئلة لفهم النص بشكل أفضل.

سؤال 1: ما معنى أن تحدث بفخر?

وهو ما يعني استخدام كلمات لتمجيد نفسك.

خلفية

Now typically we would think of self-exalting words as just simply bragging about how amazing we are, ولكن هناك العديد من الطرق للتحدث بفخر. وأعتقد أن واحدة من الطرق التي لديها هانا في الاعتبار هو ما نراه في الفصل 1.

Hannah was the wife of a man named Elkanah. She wasn’t his only wife though. وقال انه واحد أكثر من زوجة اسمها فننة اسم. كان فننة الأطفال, ولكن هانا كانت جرداء. وفننة أن تهكم أساسا هانا حول هذا الموضوع. وبسبب لها العقم وهذا هانا التعنيف فحزن وقالت انها سوف تبكي.

أعتقد فننة مثال للخطاب فخور هانا يحذرنا. فننة لم يكن مجرد لافتا إلى أن لديها أطفال. انها لم تكن مجرد محاولة لتذكير هانا الحقائق. 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, الذي لم يكن صحيحا. Scripture clearly says that children are a gift from the Lord. Peninnah was talking proudly, وقالت انها لديها للرد على الله لذلك.

طرق نتحدث بفخر

سواء كنا ندرك ذلك أم لا, 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. لكننا لا حمد الله على ذلك; the goal is making ourselves look better. I’ve caught myself doing this on many occasions. ربما الوقوع صديق قديم وطلبوا مني ما قمت به. أستطيع أن أقول موسيقى الراب, ولكن أنا أفضل أن نشير إلى الجوائز أو غيرها من الإنجازات.

2. أو ماذا عن الأشياء نقول عن الآخرين? Sometimes we slander others. نحن نريد أن ترسم لهم في ضوء سيئة, ولذا فإننا سوف تبدو جيدة. Maybe at work we point out that a particular co-worker is pretty lazy, ذلك أن الناس سوف تلاحظ الفرق بينك اثنين. أو ربما بدلا من أن تكون كريما مع الآخرين, we’re self-righteous. We stand as a judge over them, لأنه يجعلنا نشعر بالرضا عن الإنجازات الروحية لدينا. هذا هو خطاب فخور.

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.

بعض من هذه الأمثلة هي أكثر وضوحا من غيرها. لذلك كيف يمكنك أن تعرف إذا كان? ما يفصل خطاب فخور من الوقائع تفيد? Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, في قلبك أو الكلمات نفسها. وعندما نفعل ذلك, نأخذ المجد الذي ينتمي إلى الله.

قد يعترف كلماتك الله, ولكن ماذا عن قلبك? Other people may not be able to tell the difference, but Hannah reminds us that the Lord is a God who knows. وإذا لم نستخدم كلماتنا في تمجيد أنفسنا, سيكون لدينا للإجابة له لذلك.

في النص هانا يخبرنا بعدم التحدث بفخر, ثم تقول لنا لماذا: لأن الرب هو الله الذي يعلم ويزن أفعاله.

سؤال 2: لماذا يتعين علينا الإجابة الله على الكلام فخور?

لأنه هجوم على مجده.

إذا كان واحد فقط من تلك العبارات الماضيين صحيح, it would change a lot. If God knew, ولكن لم يكن القاضي, or if God was the judge but didn’t know. But the perfectly just Judge is also the all-knowing God. ليس فقط سوف تجد الله بها, انه الاستماع. 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. لأنه يعلم. وإذا هاجمنا مجده مع خطاب تفخر, وسوف تعرف.

سرقة الله

إذا كنت الذهاب الى حسابك المصرفي, وأخذ الأموال وتطبيقه على حسابي, غير أن سرقة? Of course it is. أنا أخذ شيء الذي ينتمي لك, وتطبيقه على نفسي. لا أستطيع أن أعطي لنفسي أي من المال من دون أخذ منك. وأنه من الخطأ لأنه ملك لك.

عندما يحاول البشر لتسليم انفسهم مجد, they rob God of His. You cannot ascribe to yourself praise and glory, دون سرقة من الله. Pride is an attack on God’s glory. لماذا? Because an overestimation of self comes from an underestimation of God. اسمحوا لي أن أقول مرة أخرى: المبالغة في تقدير الذات يأتي من التقليل من الله. وكما نرى في 1 صموئيل 1, هذا التقليل من الله, يؤدي أيضا إلى التقليل من الآخرين. حتى التفكير جدا جدا من أنفسنا يأتي من التفكير المتواضع جدا من الله, ويؤدي إلى التفكير المتواضع جدا من الآخرين.

كان مخطئا فننة. انها بالغت نفسها عن طريق وضع نفسها على عرش السيادية, as if she opened her own womb. And we’re often guilty of the same. نحن نعتقد أننا هم الذين يجب ان تحصل الفضل في ذلك تعزيز, أو أولئك الأطفال ذوي السلوك الحسن, أو وضعنا المالي. نعم فعلا, والله سوف مكافأة العمل الشاق الذي نقوم به, but that doesn’t guarantee anything. God’s will is the real deciding factor in every situation. ما يهم في النهاية ليس قوتنا, حكمتنا, أو حتى لدينا الإخلاص.

خطاب فخور

So pride is wrong. All of us have some pride in our hearts that we must fight. عندما تفكر في قلبك أنك تستحق المجد, that itself is a sin. But prideful speech is taking it to another level. How could we, البشر كما خاطئين, وبكل وقاحة, ليس فقط لأعتقد أننا نستحق مجد الله, ولكن لتقديم الواقع بهذه الطريقة للآخرين? To try to convince others to give us the glory that belongs to God alone. Talking proudly is like not only robbing someone, ولكن أقول للجميع عن ذلك، وتشجيعهم على أن تحذو حذوها.

الشيء الوحيد هو, 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. وهذا هو السبب وتقول هانا لا ينبغي لنا أن نفعل ذلك.

خطاب فخور وقطف معركة مع الله, which is why it’s inconsistent with the life of a believer. كما سمعنا هذا الصباح, "يقاوم الله المستكبرين, ولكنه يعطي نعمة للمتواضعين ".

الأفعال وزنه

إذا نحن لسنا في المسيح, كلماتنا تفخر, 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, يرجى الحصول على معرفة له. تحويل من ذنبك, and throw yourself on His mercy. He was incredibly humble—humble enough to die so that sinners like you and me can live. قام من القبر بكل قوة, ويدعو الرجال للسير على خطاه. كنا نحب أن أتحدث إليكم المزيد عن ذلك لاحقا.

ولكن كمسيحيين, ماذا يعني لأفعالنا أن يكون وزنه? 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. عندما نقف أمام الله, 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.

أيضا, we want to please the Father. Of course He’s pleased with us in Christ, لكننا نريد له أن يكون من دواعي سرور مع شركائنا في الأعمال الصالحة التي تأتي من الإيمان بالمسيح. نحن نريد لإرضاء الله المحبة لدينا.

يجب ألا نسمح الكلمات المتعجرفة قادمة من أفواهنا. وعلى الرغم من أننا سوف يكون للرد على الله لخطاب فخور لدينا, علينا أن نحمد الله أن يتم تغطية خطايانا في المسيح.

لذلك إذا أردنا الله ليتمجد من خلال خطابنا, كيف نحارب هذا الكلام المتعجرف?

سؤال 3: كيف نحارب الكلام فخور?

ونحن نفعل ذلك من قبل ابتهاج في الله.

يجب أن نشاهد خطابنا, but that’s not enough. It’s like telling someone with a cold the solution is just to hold their sneeze in. لا, المرض هو ما يحتاج لهجوم.

The proud heart rejoices in itself. But the humble heart rejoices in God. نظرة على الكلمات الأولى من صلاة هانا في الآية 1: “My heart rejoices in the Lord.” Hannah shows us the proper response to the Lord’s blessing. ليس فقط ابتهاج في ما أعطاه الرب, ولكن في واهب نفسه. يمكن أن يكون ردنا تفخر, ولكن بدلا من ذلك ينبغي أن تنتج التواضع فينا, لأننا تلقي هدية من الله

God gives and takes away. God distributes and withholds. لكنه يفعل كل شيء من أجل مصلحتنا ومجده. We falter when we begin to depend on those things too much. Rejoicing in God kills both pride and hopelessness.

كيف نفرح في الله? Do what it takes to remind yourself who’s behind everything. Praise God when you receive that check. هذا هو السبب في أننا والحمد لله قبل طعامنا. Remembering that it’s arrogant to assume our plans will always go forth. يقول الرب شاء. Give glory to God when others congratulate you on your accomplishments. لا لحظة تسمح قلبك لاتخاذ الائتمان. مشاهدة خطاب فخور بك. البحث عن جذور الفخر في قلبك.

استنتاج

وقد أعطيت كل واحد منا فرصة مذهلة مع كل كلمة نحن نتكلم. نصل الى استخدام كلماتنا لتمجيد الله الذي جعلنا. نصل الى استخدام كلمات جهدنا لمساعدة الآخرين رؤية الله للرب المجيد انه هو.

So my encouragement is not to use your words to exalt yourself. بدلا من, استخدامها للقيام بما خلقت لك أن تفعل-إعطاء المجد لله. كل شيء ينتمي إليه على أي حال.

دعنا نصلي.

    So nourishing! شكرا! احب هذا: “Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, في قلبك أو الكلمات نفسها. وعندما نفعل ذلك, نأخذ المجد الذي ينتمي إلى الله” and this:”عندما نقف أمام الله, 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.

    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.
    شكرا للمشاركة.

    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?

    • رحلة ليالرد

      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?

        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.

    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: “عندما تفكر في قلبك أنك تستحق المجد, 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, honestly, 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 (رحلة لي) for letting God use you to glorify him. Me and my wife really enjoy your music. Our favorite song of course isGood Thing”. I read that you discontinued making music to further pursue your ministry, is this true? We need more rappers like you bro.

    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% جيد! 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.

    • رحلة ليالرد

      Hey JB
      Thanks for reading! And for your encouraging words. I agree with you that God is 100% جيد. 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. الرومان 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, أفكار, and prayers. Your words are just that, words. 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.

    This is a message I definitely needed to hear. I find myself battling with self-righteousness even on Facebook posts that are about God. I guess I need to look deep into my motives for everything I do. My brothers and sisters in Christ, if y’all would, pray for me!

  12. Meganالرد

    thanks so much for sharing your messages. i’m 14 and my family doesn’t go to church so i really need this and other Christian resources and stuff to help me figure out what’s what about faith if that makes any sense so thank you for sharing its really helpful and encouraging.

    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
