Discours Fier et la Gloire de Dieu

introduction

J'adore les enfants. One of the reasons I love kids is because they show us ourselves. They’re like little mirrors. Laissez-moi vous dire ce que je veux dire. Les enfants ont à peu près tous les mêmes problèmes que nous avons, mais ces problèmes sont juste beaucoup plus évident parce qu'ils ne savent pas comment les cacher encore. Cela est très clair quand les enfants font des choses qu'ils ne sont pas censés faire.

Avez-vous déjà vu un enfant toucher quelque chose qu'ils ne sont pas censés toucher? They’ll look around to see if you’re looking. Ils ne se soucient pas si un autre enfant est à la recherche; ils ne veulent pas que les adultes ou les parents de voir. Pourquoi font-ils ça, bien que? Because they know you’re in charge, et ils ne veulent pas que vous trouver parce qu'ils savent que vous êtes celui qu'ils ont à répondre à.

Adults are the same way. Often we’re OK with doing things we’re not supposed to do, aussi longtemps que la personne que nous avons à répondre à ne trouve pas. Vous êtes heureux d'accélérer jusqu'à ce que vous voyez les flics avant. Peut-être que nous sommes heureux de quitter le travail tôt aussi longtemps que notre patron ne trouve pas. 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, sauf si elle est l'autorité que nous avons à répondre à.

Dans 1 Samuel 2, Hannah prays in response to the birth of her son Samuel. And in this prayer, elle met en garde les autres de ne pas commettre un péché particulier, parce que leur juge regarde. Tournez avec moi 1 chapitre Samuel 2, verset 3.

Ne pas continuer à parler avec tant de fierté ou de laisser votre bouche parler une telle arrogance, car le Seigneur est un Dieu qui sait, et par lui actes sont pesés.
(1 Samuel 2:3)

Dans ce texte,, Hannah nous met en garde contre les discours orgueilleuse, because God will find out and He’ll hold us accountable for it. Voilà ce que je pense que le principal point de ce verset est: If you talk proudly, vous aurez à répondre à Dieu pour cela.

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, parce qu'ils importent à Dieu, and He’s the One you have to answer to. We won’t finally answer to our parents, ou nos amis, ou nos pasteurs, mais à Dieu.

Dans cet esprit, Je veux poser quelques questions pour comprendre mieux le texte.

Question 1: Qu'est-ce que cela signifie To Talk Fièrement?

Cela signifie utiliser vos mots pour vous exaltera.

Contexte

Now typically we would think of self-exalting words as just simply bragging about how amazing we are, mais il y a beaucoup de façons de parler avec fierté. Et je pense que l'une des façons que Hannah a à l'esprit est ce que nous voyons dans le chapitre 1.

Hannah was the wife of a man named Elkanah. She wasn’t his only wife though. Il avait une autre femme dont le nom était Peninnah. Peninna avait des enfants, mais Hannah était stérile. Et Peninna serait essentiellement narguer Hannah à ce sujet. Et à cause de sa stérilité et cela Hannah raillant a été attristé et elle pleurerait.

Je pense que Peninna est un exemple de la parole orgueilleuse Hannah met en garde contre. Peninna était non seulement en soulignant le fait qu'elle avait des enfants. Elle n'a pas été juste essayer de rappeler à Hannah des faits. 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, qui était pas vrai. Scripture clearly says that children are a gift from the Lord. Peninnah was talking proudly, et elle aurait à répondre à Dieu pour cela.

Ways Nous parlons Fièrement

Que nous reconnaissons ou non, 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. Mais nous ne sommes pas en louant Dieu pour elle; the goal is making ourselves look better. I’ve caught myself doing this on many occasions. Peut-être en cours d'exécution dans un vieil ami et ils me ce que je fais poser. Je pourrais dire rapper, mais je préfère signaler à des prix ou d'autres réalisations.

2. Ou comment les choses que nous disons au sujet des autres? Sometimes we slander others. Nous voulons les peindre dans une mauvaise lumière, donc nous allons bien paraître. Maybe at work we point out that a particular co-worker is pretty lazy, de sorte que les gens vont remarquer la différence entre vous deux. Ou peut-être au lieu d'être courtois avec les autres, we’re self-righteous. We stand as a judge over them, parce qu'il nous fait sentir mieux sur nos réalisations spirituelles. Voilà la parole orgueilleuse.

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.

Certains de ces exemples sont plus évidentes que d'autres. Alors, comment savez-vous si elle est? Ce qui sépare le discours fier des faits indiquant? Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, dans votre cœur ou les mots eux-mêmes. Et quand nous faisons cela, nous prenons la gloire qui appartient à Dieu.

Vos paroles peuvent reconnaître Dieu, mais qu'en votre cœur? Other people may not be able to tell the difference, but Hannah reminds us that the Lord is a God who knows. Et si nous utilisons nos mots à nous exalter, nous devrons répondre à Lui pour elle.

Dans le texte Hannah nous dit de ne pas parler avec fierté, et puis elle nous dit pourquoi: parce que le Seigneur est un Dieu qui sait et pèse actions.

Question 2: Pourquoi avons-nous à répondre à Dieu pour Speech Proud?

Parce qu'il est une attaque contre sa gloire.

Si un seul de ces deux dernières phrases était vrai, it would change a lot. If God knew, mais n'a pas été le juge, or if God was the judge but didn’t know. But the perfectly just Judge is also the all-knowing God. Non seulement Dieu savoir, Il écoute. 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. Il sait. Et si nous nous attaquons sa gloire avec la parole fière, Il saura.

Robbing Dieu

Si je devais aller dans votre compte bancaire, et prendre de l'argent et l'appliquer à mon compte, est que le vol? Of course it is. Je prends quelque chose qui vous appartient, et de l'appliquer à moi-même. Je ne peux pas me donner tout votre argent sans prendre de vous. Et il est faux parce qu'il vous appartient.

Quand les êtres humains essaient de se donner gloire, they rob God of His. You cannot ascribe to yourself praise and glory, sans voler de Dieu. Pride is an attack on God’s glory. Pourquoi? Because an overestimation of self comes from an underestimation of God. Permettez-moi de le dire: une surestimation de soi provient d'une sous-estimation de Dieu. Et comme nous le voyons dans 1 Samuel 1, cette sous-estimation de Dieu, conduit aussi à une sous-estimation des autres. Donc, penser trop fortement de nous-mêmes vient de penser trop humble de Dieu, et conduit à penser trop humble des autres.

Peninnah se trompait. Elle se surestimée par se mettre sur le trône souverain, as if she opened her own womb. And we’re often guilty of the same. Nous pensons que nous sommes ceux qui doivent obtenir un crédit pour cette promotion, ou les enfants sages, ou notre situation financière. Oui, Dieu récompensera notre travail acharné, but that doesn’t guarantee anything. God’s will is the real deciding factor in every situation. Ce qui compte finalement est pas notre force, notre sagesse, ou même notre fidélité.

Discours orgueilleuse

So pride is wrong. All of us have some pride in our hearts that we must fight. Quand vous pensez à votre cœur que vous méritez la gloire, that itself is a sin. But prideful speech is taking it to another level. How could we, comme des êtres humains pécheurs, avoir l'audace, non seulement à penser que nous sommes dignes de la gloire de Dieu, mais en fait de présenter de cette façon aux autres? To try to convince others to give us the glory that belongs to God alone. Talking proudly is like not only robbing someone, mais dire à tout le monde et de les encourager à faire de même.

La seule chose est, 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. Quelle est la raison pour laquelle Hannah dit que nous ne devrions pas le faire.

la parole orgueilleuse est de choisir un combat avec Dieu, which is why it’s inconsistent with the life of a believer. Comme nous l'avons entendu ce matin, "Dieu résiste aux orgueilleux, mais donne la grâce aux humbles ".

Deeds pesés

Si nous ne sommes pas dans le Christ, nos fières paroles, 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, s'il vous plaît arriver à le connaître. Tournez à partir de votre péché, and throw yourself on His mercy. He was incredibly humble—humble enough to die so that sinners like you and me can live. Il se leva de la tombe avec toute la puissance, et appelle les hommes à le suivre. Nous aimerions vous parler plus à ce sujet plus tard.

Mais en tant que chrétiens, qu'est-ce que cela signifie pour nos actions à peser? 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. Quand nous nous tenons devant Dieu, 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.

Aussi, we want to please the Father. Of course He’s pleased with us in Christ, mais nous voulons qu'il soit satisfait de nos bonnes œuvres qui sortent de la foi dans le Christ. Nous voulons plaire à notre Dieu d'amour.

Nous ne devons pas laisser les mots arrogants à venir de nos bouches. Et bien que nous devrons répondre à Dieu pour notre discours fier, nous devrions louer Dieu que nos péchés sont couverts dans le Christ.

Donc, si nous voulons que Dieu soit glorifié par notre discours, comment pouvons-nous nous battons ce discours arrogants?

Question 3: Comment combattons-nous Discours Proud?

Nous le faisons en nous réjouissant en Dieu.

Nous devrions regarder notre discours, but that’s not enough. It’s like telling someone with a cold the solution is just to hold their sneeze in. Non, la maladie est ce qui doit être attaqué.

The proud heart rejoices in itself. But the humble heart rejoices in God. Regardez les premiers mots de la prière de Hannah en vers 1: “My heart rejoices in the Lord.” Hannah shows us the proper response to the Lord’s blessing. Non seulement se réjouir de ce que le Seigneur a donné, mais dans le Donateur lui-même. Notre réponse pourrait être fier, mais il doit produire l'humilité en nous, parce que nous recevons un don de Dieu

God gives and takes away. God distributes and withholds. Mais il fait tout pour notre bien et sa gloire. We falter when we begin to depend on those things too much. Rejoicing in God kills both pride and hopelessness.

Comment vous vous réjouissez-vous dans Dieu? Do what it takes to remind yourself who’s behind everything. Praise God when you receive that check. Voilà pourquoi nous remercions Dieu avant notre nourriture. Remembering that it’s arrogant to assume our plans will always go forth. Dites Seigneur le veut. Give glory to God when others congratulate you on your accomplishments. Ne pas une minute laissez votre cœur à prendre le crédit. Surveillez votre discours orgueilleuse. Trouver les racines de la fierté dans votre coeur.

Conclusion

Chacun d'entre nous a été donné une occasion extraordinaire à chaque mot que nous parlons. Nous apprenons à utiliser nos mots pour glorifier le Dieu qui nous a fait. Nous apprenons à utiliser nos mots pour aider les autres voir Dieu pour le glorieux Seigneur qu'Il est.

So my encouragement is not to use your words to exalt yourself. Au lieu, les utiliser pour faire ce que vous avez été créé pour faire-donner gloire à Dieu. Tout lui appartient de toute façon.

Prions.

    So nourishing! Je vous remercie! I love this: “Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, dans votre cœur ou les mots eux-mêmes. Et quand nous faisons cela, nous prenons la gloire qui appartient à Dieu” and this:”Quand nous nous tenons devant Dieu, 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.
    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 LeeRépondre

      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?

      • JesseRépondre

        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. JohnRépondre

    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: “Quand vous pensez à votre cœur que vous méritez la gloire, 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 LeeRépondre

      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. Romains 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, pensées, 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!

  13. MeganRépondre

    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
