Stolt Tale og Guds herlighed

Introduktion

Jeg elsker børn. One of the reasons I love kids is because they show us ourselves. They’re like little mirrors. Lad mig fortælle dig, hvad jeg mener. Børn har stort set alle af de samme problemer, vi har, men disse problemer er bare en masse mere indlysende, fordi de ikke ved, hvordan man kan skjule dem endnu. Dette er virkelig klart, når børn gør ting, de er ikke meningen at gøre.

Har du nogensinde set et barn røre noget, de er ikke meningen at røre? They’ll look around to see if you’re looking. De er ligeglade, hvis en anden knægt ser; de vil bare ikke have voksne eller forældre til at se. Hvorfor gør de det, selvom? Because they know you’re in charge, og de ønsker ikke at finde ud af, fordi de ved, du er den, de har til at svare til.

Adults are the same way. Often we’re OK with doing things we’re not supposed to do, så længe den person, vi nødt til at svare til ikke at finde ud af. Du er glad for at fremskynde indtil du ser politiet forude. Måske er vi glade for at forlade arbejdet tidligt, så længe vores chef ikke finde ud af. 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, medmindre det er den myndighed, vi nødt til at svare til.

I 1 Samuel 2, Hannah prays in response to the birth of her son Samuel. And in this prayer, Hun advarer andre ikke at begå en bestemt synd, fordi deres Dommer holder øje. Vende med mig til 1 kapitel Samuel 2, vers 3.

Må ikke holde taler så stolt eller lad din mund tale sådan arrogance, for Herren er en Gud, der kender, og ved ham gerninger vejes.
(1 Samuel 2:3)

I denne tekst, Hannah advarer os imod stolte tale, because God will find out and He’ll hold us accountable for it. Det er hvad jeg tror, ​​det vigtigste punkt i dette vers er: If you talk proudly, du bliver nødt til at svare til Gud for det.

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, fordi de betyder noget for Gud, and He’s the One you have to answer to. We won’t finally answer to our parents, eller vores venner, eller vores præster, men til Gud.

Med det i tankerne, Jeg vil gerne stille et par spørgsmål til at forstå teksten bedre.

Spørgsmål 1: Hvad betyder det at tale Stolt?

Det betyder at bruge dine ord til at ophøje dig selv.

Baggrund

Now typically we would think of self-exalting words as just simply bragging about how amazing we are, men der er mange måder at tale med stolthed. Og jeg tror, ​​en af ​​de måder, som Hannah har i tankerne er, hvad vi ser i kapitel 1.

Hannah was the wife of a man named Elkanah. She wasn’t his only wife though. Han havde endnu en kone som hed Peninna. Peninna havde børn, men Hannah var ufrugtbar. Og Peninna ville dybest set håne Hannah om det. Og på grund af hendes barnløshed og dette håne Hannah blev bedrøvet og hun ville græde.

Jeg tror Peninna er et eksempel på den stolte tale Hannah advarer os imod. Peninna var ikke bare at påpege det faktum, at hun havde børn. Hun var ikke bare at minde Hannah af de faktiske omstændigheder. 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, som ikke var sandt. Scripture clearly says that children are a gift from the Lord. Peninnah was talking proudly, og hun ville have til at svare til Gud for det.

Måder Vi taler Stolt

Hvad enten vi erkender det eller ej, 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. Men vi er ikke lovede Gud for det; the goal is making ourselves look better. I’ve caught myself doing this on many occasions. Måske kører ind i en gammel ven, og de spørger mig, hvad jeg har gjort. Jeg kunne sige rap, men jeg vil hellere pege på priser eller andre resultater.

2. Eller hvad de ting, vi siger om andre? Sometimes we slander others. Vi ønsker at male dem i et dårligt lys, så vi vil se godt. Maybe at work we point out that a particular co-worker is pretty lazy, så folk vil bemærke forskellen mellem jer to. Eller måske i stedet for at være nådig med andre, we’re self-righteous. We stand as a judge over them, fordi det gør os til at føle sig bedre om vores åndelige resultater. Det er stolte tale.

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.

Nogle af disse eksempler er mere indlysende end andre. Så hvordan kan du vide, om det er? Hvad adskiller stolt tale fra angivelse fakta? Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, i dit hjerte eller ordene selv. Og når vi gør det, vi tager herlighed, som tilhører Gud.

Dine ord kan erkende Gud, men hvad med dit hjerte? Other people may not be able to tell the difference, but Hannah reminds us that the Lord is a God who knows. Og hvis vi bruger vores ord til at ophøje os selv, vi bliver nødt til at svare til ham for det.

I teksten fortæller Hannah os ikke til at tale med stolthed, og derefter fortæller hun hvorfor: fordi Herren er en Gud, der kender og vejer gerninger.

Spørgsmål 2: Hvorfor har vi nødt til at svare til Gud for Proud Speech?

Fordi det er et angreb på hans herlighed.

Hvis kun en af ​​de to sidste sætninger var sandt, it would change a lot. If God knew, men var ikke dommeren, or if God was the judge but didn’t know. But the perfectly just Judge is also the all-knowing God. Ikke blot vil Gud finde ud af, Han lytter. 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. Han ved. Og hvis vi angriber hans herlighed med stolte tale, Han vil vide.

stjæler Gud

Hvis jeg var at gå ind på din bankkonto, og tage penge og anvende det til min konto, er, at stjæle? Of course it is. Jeg tager noget, der tilhører dig, og anvende det til mig selv. Jeg kan ikke give mig nogen af ​​dine penge uden at tage det fra dig. Og det er forkert, fordi det tilhører dig.

Når mennesket forsøger at give sig selv ære, they rob God of His. You cannot ascribe to yourself praise and glory, uden at stjæle fra Gud. Pride is an attack on God’s glory. Hvorfor? Because an overestimation of self comes from an underestimation of God. Lad mig sige det igen: en overvurdering af selv kommer fra en undervurdering af Gud. Og som vi ser i 1 Samuel 1, denne undervurdering af Gud, også fører til en undervurdering af andre. Så tænker alt for meget af os selv kommer fra at tænke for ydmyg Guds, og fører til at tænke for ydmyge andres.

Peninna blev forvekslet. Hun overvurderet sig selv ved at sætte sig på den suveræne trone, as if she opened her own womb. And we’re often guilty of the same. Vi tror, ​​vi er dem, der skal få æren for, at fremme, eller de artige børn, eller vores finansielle situation. Ja, Gud vil belønne vores hårde arbejde, but that doesn’t guarantee anything. God’s will is the real deciding factor in every situation. Det afgørende endelig ikke vores styrke, vores visdom, eller endda vores trofasthed.

stolte Tale

So pride is wrong. All of us have some pride in our hearts that we must fight. Når du tænker på dit hjerte, at du fortjener herlighed, that itself is a sin. But prideful speech is taking it to another level. How could we, som syndige mennesker, har den frækhed, ikke blot at tror, ​​vi er værdige til Guds herlighed, men rent faktisk at præsentere det på den måde til andre? To try to convince others to give us the glory that belongs to God alone. Talking proudly is like not only robbing someone, men fortæller alle om det og tilskynde dem til at gøre det samme.

Det eneste er, 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. Hvilket er grunden til Hannah siger, at vi ikke bør gøre det.

Stolte tale er picking en kamp med Gud, which is why it’s inconsistent with the life of a believer. Som vi hørte i morges, "Gud er imod den stolte, men giver nåde til de ydmyge. "

Deeds Vejes

Hvis vi ikke er i Kristus, vores stolte ord, 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, du kommer til at kende Ham. Vend fra din synd, and throw yourself on His mercy. He was incredibly humble—humble enough to die so that sinners like you and me can live. Han opstod fra graven med al magt, og opkald mænd til at følge ham. Vi vil meget gerne tale med dig mere om det bagefter.

Men som kristne, hvad betyder det for vore gerninger skal vejes? 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. Når vi står foran Gud, 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.

Også, we want to please the Father. Of course He’s pleased with us in Christ, men vi ønsker ham at være tilfreds med vores gode gerninger, der kommer ud af tro på Kristus. Vi ønsker at behage vor kærlige Gud.

Vi bør ikke tillade arrogante ord kommer fra vores mund. Og selv om vi bliver nødt til at svare til Gud for vores stolte tale, vi bør prise Gud, at vore synder er dækket i Kristus.

Så hvis vi ønsker Gud blive herliggjort ved vores tale, hvordan kan vi bekæmpe denne arrogante snak?

Spørgsmål 3: Hvordan We Fight Proud Tale?

Vi gør det ved at glæde sig i Gud.

Vi bør se vores tale, but that’s not enough. It’s like telling someone with a cold the solution is just to hold their sneeze in. Ingen, sygdommen er, hvad der skal angribes.

The proud heart rejoices in itself. But the humble heart rejoices in God. Kig på de første ord af Hannah bøn i vers 1: “My heart rejoices in the Lord.” Hannah shows us the proper response to the Lord’s blessing. Ikke bare glæde i, hvad Herren har givet, men i Giveren selv. Vores svar kunne være stolte, men i stedet skal producere ydmyghed i os, fordi vi får en gave fra Gud

God gives and takes away. God distributes and withholds. Men han gør det hele for vores gode og hans herlighed. We falter when we begin to depend on those things too much. Rejoicing in God kills both pride and hopelessness.

Hvordan glæde sig i Gud? Do what it takes to remind yourself who’s behind everything. Praise God when you receive that check. Det er derfor, vi takker Gud før vores mad. Remembering that it’s arrogant to assume our plans will always go forth. Sig Lord villige. Give glory to God when others congratulate you on your accomplishments. Må ikke et øjeblik lade dit hjerte at tage æren. Se din stolte tale. Find rødderne af stolthed i dit hjerte.

Konklusion

Hver enkelt af os har fået en fantastisk mulighed med hvert ord, vi taler. Vi kommer til at bruge vores ord til at forherlige den Gud, som gjorde os. Vi kommer til at bruge vores ord til at hjælpe andre til at se Gud for det herlige Herren, at han er.

So my encouragement is not to use your words to exalt yourself. I stedet, bruge dem til at gøre, hvad du blev skabt til at gøre-give Gud Ære. Det hele tilhører Ham alligevel.

Lad os bede.

    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 LeeSvar

      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?

      • JesseSvar

        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: “Når du tænker på dit hjerte, at du fortjener herlighed, 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 (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.

    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 LeeSvar

      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. Romerne 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, tanker, and prayers. Your words are just that, ord. 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. MeganSvar

    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
