Discorso Orgoglioso e la gloria di Dio

introduzione

amo i bambini. Una delle ragioni per cui amo i bambini è perché ci mostrano noi stessi. Sono come piccoli specchi. Lasciate che vi dica quello che voglio dire. I bambini hanno più o meno tutti gli stessi problemi che abbiamo, ma questi problemi sono solo molto più evidente, perché non sanno come nascondere loro ancora. Questo è veramente chiaro quando i bambini fanno cose che non si dovrebbe fare.

Avete mai visto un bambino tocco qualcosa che non si suppone di toccare? Faranno guardano intorno per vedere se siete alla ricerca. A loro non importa se un altro ragazzo è alla ricerca; solo che non vogliono adulti o genitori di vedere. Perché lo fanno, anche se? Perché sanno che sei in carica, e non vogliono a scoprire perché sanno che tu sei quello che devono rispondere alle.

Adulti sono allo stesso modo. Spesso siamo OK con fare cose che non dovremmo fare, finché la persona dobbiamo rispondere a non scoprire. Sei contento di accelerare fino a vedere poliziotti avanti. Forse siamo lieti di lasciare il lavoro presto il più a lungo il nostro capo non trova fuori. 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, meno che non sia l'autorità dobbiamo rispondere a.

In 1 Samuel 2, Hannah prays in response to the birth of her son Samuel. And in this prayer, avverte gli altri a non commettere un solo peccato particolare, perché il loro giudice sta guardando. Girare con me 1 capitolo Samuel 2, versetto 3.

Non continuare a parlare con tanto orgoglio o lasciare che la tua bocca parli tale arroganza, perché il Signore è un Dio che sa, e da lui fatti sono pesate.
(1 Samuel 2:3)

In questo testo, Hannah ci mette in guardia contro il discorso orgoglioso, because God will find out and He’ll hold us accountable for it. Questo è ciò che penso che il punto principale di questo verso è: If you talk proudly, si dovrà rispondere a Dio per essa.

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, perché sono importanti per Dio, and He’s the One you have to answer to. We won’t finally answer to our parents, oi nostri amici, oi nostri pastori, ma a Dio.

Con quello in mente, Voglio fare alcune domande per capire meglio il testo.

Domanda 1: Che cosa significa To Talk Orgogliosamente?

Significa usare le parole per esaltare te stesso.

sfondo

Now typically we would think of self-exalting words as just simply bragging about how amazing we are, ma ci sono molti modi per parlare con orgoglio. E penso che uno dei modi in cui Hannah ha in mente è quello che vediamo nel capitolo 1.

Hannah was the wife of a man named Elkanah. She wasn’t his only wife though. Aveva ancora una moglie il cui nome era Peninna. Peninna aveva figli, ma Hannah era sterile. E Peninna sarebbe fondamentalmente taunt Hannah su di esso. E a causa della sua sterilità e questo scherno Hannah era addolorato e lei avrebbe pianto.

Credo che Peninna è un esempio del discorso orgoglioso Hannah ci mette in guardia. Peninna non era solo sottolineando il fatto che lei aveva i bambini. Non stava solo cercando di ricordare Hannah dei fatti. 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, che non era vero. Scripture clearly says that children are a gift from the Lord. Peninnah was talking proudly, e che avrebbe dovuto rispondere a Dio per essa.

Modi parliamo Orgogliosamente

Se ci rendiamo conto 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. Ma non stiamo lodando Dio per essa; the goal is making ourselves look better. I’ve caught myself doing this on many occasions. Forse in esecuzione in un vecchio amico e me quello che ho fatto chiedono. Potrei dire rap, ma io preferisco sottolineare a premi o altre realizzazioni.

2. O come circa le cose che diciamo su altri? Sometimes we slander others. Vogliamo dipingerli in cattiva luce, così vedremo bene. Maybe at work we point out that a particular co-worker is pretty lazy, in modo che la gente noterà la differenza tra voi due. O forse invece di essere gentile con gli altri, we’re self-righteous. We stand as a judge over them, noi perché rende sentire meglio sulle nostre realizzazioni spirituali. Questo è il discorso orgoglioso.

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.

Alcuni di questi esempi sono più evidenti di altri. Quindi, come si fa a sapere se si tratta di? Ciò che separa il discorso orgoglioso dai fatti affermando? Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, nel vostro cuore o le parole stesse. E quando lo facciamo, prendiamo gloria che appartiene a Dio.

Le tue parole possono riconoscere Dio, ma per quanto riguarda il tuo cuore? Other people may not be able to tell the difference, but Hannah reminds us that the Lord is a God who knows. E se usiamo le nostre parole per esaltare noi stessi, dovremo rispondere a Lui per esso.

Nel testo di Hannah ci dice di non parlare con orgoglio, e poi ci dice perché: perché il Signore è un Dio che conosce e pesa le azioni.

Domanda 2: Perché dobbiamo rispondere a Dio per Speech Proud?

Perché è un attacco alla sua gloria.

Se solo una di queste due ultime frasi era vero, it would change a lot. If God knew, ma non era il giudice, or if God was the judge but didn’t know. But the perfectly just Judge is also the all-knowing God. Non solo Dio scoprire, Sta ascoltando. 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. Lui sa. E se attacchiamo la sua gloria con il discorso orgoglioso, Saprà.

Robbing Dio

Se dovessi andare nel tuo conto bancario, e prendere i soldi e applicarlo al mio conto, è che il furto? Of course it is. Sto prendendo qualcosa che vi appartiene, e la sua applicazione a me stesso. Non riesco a darmi qualsiasi dei vostri soldi senza prendere da voi. Ed è sbagliato perché appartiene a te.

Quando gli esseri umani cercano di darsi gloria, they rob God of His. You cannot ascribe to yourself praise and glory, senza rubare da Dio. Pride is an attack on God’s glory. Perché? Because an overestimation of self comes from an underestimation of God. Lasciatemi dire che ancora una volta: una sopravvalutazione di sé deriva da una sottovalutazione di Dio. E come vediamo in 1 Samuel 1, questa sottovalutazione di Dio, porta anche a una sottostima degli altri. Così pensando troppo alta di noi stessi viene da pensare troppo umile di Dio, e porta a pensare troppo umile di altri.

Peninna è stato scambiato. Lei si sovrastimato mettendo se stessa sul trono Sovrano, as if she opened her own womb. And we’re often guilty of the same. Pensiamo di essere quelli che dovrebbero ottenere credito per quella promozione, o quei bambini ben educati, o la nostra situazione finanziaria. sì, Dio ricompenserà il nostro duro lavoro, but that doesn’t guarantee anything. God’s will is the real deciding factor in every situation. Ciò che conta, infine, non è la nostra forza, la nostra saggezza, o anche la nostra fedeltà.

discorso prideful

So pride is wrong. All of us have some pride in our hearts that we must fight. Quando si pensa nel tuo cuore che si meritano la gloria, that itself is a sin. But prideful speech is taking it to another level. How could we, gli esseri umani come peccatori, avere l'audacia, non solo a pensare che siamo degni della gloria di Dio, ma in realtà per presentare in questo modo per gli altri? To try to convince others to give us the glory that belongs to God alone. Talking proudly is like not only robbing someone, ma dire a tutti su di esso e incoraggiandoli a fare lo stesso.

L'unica cosa è, 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. Che è il motivo per cui Hannah dice che non dovremmo farlo.

discorso orgoglioso sta prendendo una lotta con Dio, which is why it’s inconsistent with the life of a believer. Come abbiamo sentito questa mattina, "Dio resiste ai superbi, ma dà grazia agli umili. "

Deeds pesava

Se non siamo in Cristo, le nostre parole orgogliose, 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 prega di arrivare a conoscerLo. Trasforma dal tuo peccato, and throw yourself on His mercy. He was incredibly humble—humble enough to die so that sinners like you and me can live. Si alzò dalla tomba, con tutto il potere, e chiama gli uomini a seguirlo. Ci piacerebbe parlare con te di più che poi.

Ma come cristiani, cosa significa per le nostre azioni da pesare? 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. Quando ci troviamo di fronte a Dio, 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.

Anche, we want to please the Father. Of course He’s pleased with us in Christ, ma noi vogliamo che sia soddisfatto con le nostre buone opere che escono dalla fede in Cristo. Noi vogliamo soddisfare i nostri Dio amorevole.

Non dobbiamo permettere che le parole arroganti di venire dalle nostre bocche. E anche se dovremo rispondere a Dio per il nostro discorso orgoglioso, dobbiamo lodare Dio che i nostri peccati sono coperti in Cristo.

Quindi, se vogliamo che Dio sia glorificato dal nostro discorso, come possiamo combattere questo discorso arrogante?

Domanda 3: Come combattiamo Discorso Proud?

Lo facciamo da gioia in Dio.

Dobbiamo guardare il nostro discorso, but that’s not enough. It’s like telling someone with a cold the solution is just to hold their sneeze in. No, la malattia è ciò che deve essere attaccato.

The proud heart rejoices in itself. But the humble heart rejoices in God. Guarda le prime parole della preghiera di Anna in versi 1: “My heart rejoices in the Lord.” Hannah shows us the proper response to the Lord’s blessing. Non solo gioia in ciò che il Signore ha dato, ma nel Datore stesso. La nostra risposta potrebbe essere orgogliosi, ma invece dovrebbe produrre l'umiltà in noi, perché stiamo ricevendo un dono di Dio

God gives and takes away. God distributes and withholds. Ma lo fa tutto per il nostro bene e la sua gloria. We falter when we begin to depend on those things too much. Rejoicing in God kills both pride and hopelessness.

Come si fa a esultare in Dio? Do what it takes to remind yourself who’s behind everything. Praise God when you receive that check. Questo è il motivo per cui ringraziamo Dio prima del nostro cibo. Remembering that it’s arrogant to assume our plans will always go forth. Dire Signore vuole. Give glory to God when others congratulate you on your accomplishments. Non per un minuto permettere il cuore di prendersi il merito. Guarda il tuo discorso orgoglioso. Trova le radici di orgoglio nel vostro cuore.

Conclusione

Ognuno di noi è stata data una straordinaria opportunità a ogni parola si parla. Si arriva a usare le nostre parole per glorificare il Dio che ci ha fatto. Si arriva a usare le nostre parole per aiutare gli altri vedere Dio per il Signore glorioso che Egli è.

So my encouragement is not to use your words to exalt yourself. Anziché, li usa per fare ciò che sei stato creato per fare-dare gloria a Dio. Tutto appartiene a Lui in ogni caso.

Preghiamo.

    So nourishing! Thank you! I love this: “Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, nel vostro cuore o le parole stesse. E quando lo facciamo, prendiamo gloria che appartiene a Dio” and this:”Quando ci troviamo di fronte a Dio, 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.rispondere

    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 Leerispondere

      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?

      • Jesserispondere

        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. Giovannirispondere

    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. DaughterofGodrispondere

    I am having a hard time with this quote: “Quando si pensa nel tuo cuore che si meritano la gloria, 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. Michaelrispondere

    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. JBrispondere

    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 Leerispondere

      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. romani 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, pensieri, 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. Meganrispondere

    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.

  14. JBrispondere

    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
