Discurs orgull i la glòria de Déu

introducció

M'encanten els nens. One of the reasons I love kids is because they show us ourselves. They’re like little mirrors. Deixeu-me dir-li el que vull dir. Els nens tenen més o menys tots dels mateixos problemes que tenim, però aquests problemes són molt més evident, perquè no saben com amagar ells encara. Això és molt clar quan els nens fan coses que no se suposa que hem de fer.

Alguna vegada ha vist a un nen una mica tàctil no se suposa que tocar? They’ll look around to see if you’re looking. No els importa si un altre nen està mirant; simplement no volen que els adults o els pares per veure. Per què fan això, encara que? Because they know you’re in charge, i que no volen que vostè descobreixi perquè saben que ets el que ells han de respondre davant.

Adults are the same way. Often we’re OK with doing things we’re not supposed to do, sempre que la persona que hem de respondre davant no saber. Estàs content d'accelerar fins que vegi policies per davant. Potser estem encantats de sortir abans de la feina, sempre que el nostre cap no s'assabenti. 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, llevat que sigui l'autoritat que hem de respondre davant.

a 1 Samuel 2, Hannah prays in response to the birth of her son Samuel. And in this prayer, adverteix que altres no cometre un pecat en particular, a causa de que el seu jutge està mirant. Vagi amb mi a 1 Samuel capítol 2, vers 3.

No seguir parlant amb tant orgull o deixi que la seva boca parlen tal arrogància, perquè el Senyor és un Déu que coneix, i per ell fets es pesen.
(1 Samuel 2:3)

En aquest text, Hannah ens adverteix contra les expressions de supèrbia, because God will find out and He’ll hold us accountable for it. Això és el que crec que el punt principal d'aquest vers és: If you talk proudly, que haurà de respondre a Déu pel.

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, perquè són importants per a Déu, and He’s the One you have to answer to. We won’t finally answer to our parents, o els nostres amics, o els nostres pastors, sinó a Déu.

Amb això en ment, Vull fer algunes preguntes per entendre millor el text.

pregunta 1: Què significa Parlar amb orgull?

Significa utilitzar les seves paraules per exaltar-se a si mateix.

fons

Now typically we would think of self-exalting words as just simply bragging about how amazing we are, però hi ha moltes maneres de parlar amb orgull. I crec que una de les formes en què Hannah té en ment és el que veiem en el capítol 1.

Hannah was the wife of a man named Elkanah. She wasn’t his only wife though. Tenia una dona més que es deia Penina. Penina tenia fills, però Anna era estèril. I Penina seria bàsicament burlar-se de Hannah referent a això. I a causa de la seva esterilitat i això Hannah burlant-se enemisté i ella ploraria.

Crec que Penina és un exemple de l'expressió orgullosa Ana ens adverteix contra. Penina no només estava assenyalant el fet que ella tenia fills. Ella no només estava tractant de recordar a Hannah dels fets. 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, la qual cosa no era cert. Scripture clearly says that children are a gift from the Lord. Peninnah was talking proudly, i hauria de respondre a Déu per ella.

Maneres parlem amb orgull

Ja sigui que ho reconeguem o no, 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. Però no estem lloant Déu per ella; the goal is making ourselves look better. I’ve caught myself doing this on many occasions. Potser s'executa amb un vell amic i m'ho he estat fent preguntar. Podria dir rap, però jo prefereixo assenyalar als premis o altres èxits.

2. O què tal les coses que diem dels altres? Sometimes we slander others. Volem pintar en una mala llum, així que anem a veure una bona. Maybe at work we point out that a particular co-worker is pretty lazy, perquè la gent es donarà compte de la diferència entre vostès dos. O potser en lloc de ser amable amb els altres, we’re self-righteous. We stand as a judge over them, perquè ens fa sentir millor sobre els nostres èxits espirituals. És a dir la parla orgullós.

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.

Alguns d'aquests exemples són més evidents que altres. Així que, com saber si es tracta d'? El que separa la parla orgullós dels fets que indiquen? Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, al cor o les pròpies paraules. I quan ho fem, prenem la glòria que pertany a Déu.

Les seves paraules poden reconèixer Déu, però què passa amb el seu cor? Other people may not be able to tell the difference, but Hannah reminds us that the Lord is a God who knows. I si fem servir les nostres paraules per a exaltar a nosaltres mateixos, anem a haver de respondre davant ell per ella.

En el text de Hannah ens diu que no parli amb orgull, i llavors ella ens explica per què: perquè el Senyor és un Déu que coneix i pesa obres.

pregunta 2: Per què hem de respondre a Déu per Speech orgullós?

A causa de que és un atac a la seva glòria.

Si només una d'aquestes dues últimes frases era cert, it would change a lot. If God knew, però no era el jutge, or if God was the judge but didn’t know. But the perfectly just Judge is also the all-knowing God. No només va a trobar Déu, està escoltant. 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. Ell sap. I si vam atacar la seva glòria amb la parla orgullós, ell sabrà.

robar a Déu

Si hagués d'entrar al seu compte bancari, i prendre els diners i aplicar-lo a la meva compte, és que el robatori? Of course it is. Estic prenent alguna cosa que li pertany a vostè, i aplicant-lo a mi. Jo no em puc donar dels seus diners sense prendre-ho de vostè. I és dolent perquè et pertany.

Quan els éssers humans tracten de donar glòria a si mateixos, they rob God of His. You cannot ascribe to yourself praise and glory, sense robar de Déu. Pride is an attack on God’s glory. Per què? Because an overestimation of self comes from an underestimation of God. Permetin-me dir que de nou: una sobreestimació de si mateix prové d'una subestimació de Déu. I com veiem en 1 Samuel 1, Aquesta subestimació de Déu, també condueix a una subestimació dels altres. Així que pensar massa alt de nosaltres mateixos ve de pensar massa humil de Déu, i fa pensar massa humil dels altres.

Penina es va equivocar. Ella mateixa sobreestimat posant-se a si mateixa en el tron ​​Sovereign, as if she opened her own womb. And we’re often guilty of the same. Creiem que som els que han de rebre el crèdit perquè la promoció, o aquells nens de bon comportament, o la nostra situació financera. si, Déu recompensarà al nostre treball dur, but that doesn’t guarantee anything. God’s will is the real deciding factor in every situation. El que importa finalment no és la nostra força, la nostra saviesa, o fins i tot la nostra fidelitat.

discurs orgullosa

So pride is wrong. All of us have some pride in our hearts that we must fight. Quan es pensa en el seu cor que vostè es mereix la glòria, that itself is a sin. But prideful speech is taking it to another level. How could we, com a éssers humans pecadors, tenen l'audàcia, no només pensar que som dignes de la glòria de Déu, sinó presentar realment d'aquesta manera als altres? To try to convince others to give us the glory that belongs to God alone. Talking proudly is like not only robbing someone, però dient a tots sobre ell i animant-los a fer el mateix.

L'única cosa és, 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. És per això que Hannah diu que no hem de fer-ho.

discurs orgullós és recollir una baralla amb Déu, which is why it’s inconsistent with the life of a believer. Com hem escoltat aquest matí, "Déu resisteix als superbs, però dóna gràcia als humils ".

Deeds van pesar

Si no estem en Crist, les nostres orgulloses paraules, 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, si us plau, arribar a conèixer-lo. Deixin de pecar, and throw yourself on His mercy. He was incredibly humble—humble enough to die so that sinners like you and me can live. Es va aixecar de la tomba, amb gran poder, i crida els homes a seguir-. Ens encantaria parlar amb vostè més sobre el fet que després.

Però com a cristians, el que significa per als nostres fets que sospesar? 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. Quan estem davant de Déu, 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.

també, we want to please the Father. Of course He’s pleased with us in Christ, però volem que ell sigui satisfet amb les nostres bones obres que surten de la fe en Crist. Volem agradar al nostre amor a Déu.

No hem de permetre que les paraules arrogants que vénen de la boca. I encara que haurem de respondre a Déu per la nostra parla orgullosa, hem de lloar Déu que els nostres pecats són coberts en Crist.

Així que si volem que Déu sigui glorificat pel nostre discurs, Com podem lluitar contra aquesta xerrada arrogant?

pregunta 3: Com ens parla orgullós Fight?

Ho fem posant la seva alegria en Déu.

Hem de veure el nostre discurs, but that’s not enough. It’s like telling someone with a cold the solution is just to hold their sneeze in. No, la malaltia és el que necessita ser atacat.

The proud heart rejoices in itself. But the humble heart rejoices in God. Mira les primeres paraules de l'oració d'Ana en vers 1: “My heart rejoices in the Lord.” Hannah shows us the proper response to the Lord’s blessing. No només alegria en el que el Senyor ha donat, però en el Dador Mateix. La nostra resposta podria estar orgullós, però en el seu lloc s'ha de produir en nosaltres la humilitat, perquè estem rebent un regal de Déu

God gives and takes away. God distributes and withholds. Però Ell ho fa tot per al nostre bé i per a la seva glòria. We falter when we begin to depend on those things too much. Rejoicing in God kills both pride and hopelessness.

Com s'alegrarà en Déu? Do what it takes to remind yourself who’s behind everything. Praise God when you receive that check. És per això que gràcies a Déu abans del nostre menjar. Remembering that it’s arrogant to assume our plans will always go forth. Dir Senyor ho permet. Give glory to God when others congratulate you on your accomplishments. No per un minut permetin que el seu cor prendre el crèdit. Miri el seu discurs orgullós. Trobar les arrels d'orgull en el seu cor.

conclusió

Tots i cada un de nosaltres se li ha donat una oportunitat increïble amb cada paraula que parlem. Tenim l'oportunitat d'usar les nostres paraules per glorificar a Déu que ens va fer. Tenim l'oportunitat d'utilitzar les nostres paraules per ajudar a altres a veure Déu pel Senyor gloriós que Ell és.

So my encouragement is not to use your words to exalt yourself. en comptes, utilitzar-los per fer el que van ser creats per fer, donar glòria a Déu. Tot li pertany a ell de totes maneres.

Anem a pregar.

    So nourishing! Gràcies! I love this: “Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, al cor o les pròpies paraules. I quan ho fem, prenem la glòria que pertany a Déu” and this:”Quan estem davant de Déu, 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.

  5. Eveno M.respondre

    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.
    Thanks for sharing.

    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 Leerespondre

      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?

      • Jesserespondre

        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. Joanrespondre

    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

  8. DaughterofGodrespondre

    I am having a hard time with this quote: “Quan es pensa en el seu cor que vostè es mereix la glòria, 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.

  9. Michaelrespondre

    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 isGood Thing”. I read that you discontinued making music to further pursue your ministry, is this true? We need more rappers like you bro.

  10. JBrespondre

    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% good! 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 Leerespondre

      Hey JB
      Thanks for reading! And for your encouraging words. I agree with you that God is 100% good. 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. romans 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, pensaments, and prayers. Your words are just that, paraules. 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!

  13. Meganrespondre

    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
