Fala orgulhoso e a Glória de Deus

Introdução

Eu amo crianças. Uma das razões que eu amo crianças é porque nos mostram a nós mesmos. Eles são como pequenos espelhos. Deixe-me dizer o que eu quero dizer. As crianças têm praticamente todos os mesmos problemas que temos, mas esses problemas são apenas muito mais óbvio, porque eles não sabem como esconder-los ainda. Isso é muito claro quando as crianças fazem coisas que não é suposto fazer.

Você já viu um toque miúdo algo que não é suposto para tocar? Eles vão olhar ao redor para ver se você está procurando. Eles não se importam se outra criança está olhando; eles simplesmente não querem adultos ou os pais para ver. Porque eles fazem aquilo, embora? Porque eles sabem que você está no comando, e eles não querem que você descubra porque sabem que você é o único que tem que responder a.

Os adultos são da mesma forma. Muitas vezes estamos bem com fazer as coisas que não devemos fazer, desde que a pessoa que tem que responder a não saber. Você está feliz para acelerar até ver policiais em frente. Talvez nós estamos contentes de deixar o trabalho cedo, desde que o nosso chefe não saber. 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, a menos que seja a autoridade que tem que responder a.

Dentro 1 Samuel 2, Hannah prays in response to the birth of her son Samuel. And in this prayer, ela avisa os outros para não cometer um pecado particular, porque seu juiz está assistindo. Venha comigo até 1 capítulo Samuel 2, versículo 3.

Não continuar a falar tão orgulhosamente ou deixe sua boca fala tal arrogância, porque o Senhor é um Deus que sabe, e por ele atos são pesados.
(1 Samuel 2:3)

Neste texto, Hannah nos adverte contra o discurso arrogante, because God will find out and He’ll hold us accountable for it. Isso é o que eu acho que o ponto principal deste verso é: If you talk proudly, você vai ter que responder a Deus por ele.

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, porque é importante para Deus, and He’s the One you have to answer to. We won’t finally answer to our parents, ou os nossos amigos, ou nossos pastores, mas a Deus.

Com aquilo em mente, Eu quero fazer algumas perguntas para compreender melhor o texto.

Questão 1: O que significa para falar Orgulhosamente?

Significa usar suas palavras para exaltar a si mesmo.

fundo

Now typically we would think of self-exalting words as just simply bragging about how amazing we are, mas há muitas maneiras de falar orgulhosamente. E eu acho que uma das maneiras que Hannah tem em mente é o que vemos no capítulo 1.

Hannah was the wife of a man named Elkanah. She wasn’t his only wife though. Ele tinha mais uma mulher cujo nome era Penina. Penina tinha filhos, porém Ana era estéril. E Penina seria basicamente insultar Hannah sobre ele. E por causa de sua esterilidade e este Hannah provocando indignei e ela choraria.

Eu acho que Penina é um exemplo do discurso arrogante Hannah nos adverte contra. Penina não estava apenas indicando o fato de que ela tinha filhos. Ela não estava apenas tentando lembrar Hannah dos fatos. 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, que não era verdade. Scripture clearly says that children are a gift from the Lord. Peninnah was talking proudly, e ela teria de responder a Deus por ele.

Maneiras Falamos Orgulhosamente

Quer o reconheçamos ou não, 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. Mas não estamos louvando a Deus por ele; the goal is making ourselves look better. I’ve caught myself doing this on many occasions. Talvez correr para um velho amigo e eles me o que eu tenho feito perguntar. Eu poderia dizer rap, mas eu prefiro apontar para prémios ou outras realizações.

2. Ou como sobre as coisas que dizem sobre os outros? Sometimes we slander others. Queremos pintá-los em uma luz má, então vamos olhar bom. Maybe at work we point out that a particular co-worker is pretty lazy, de modo que as pessoas vão notar a diferença entre vocês dois. Ou talvez em vez de ser gentil com os outros, we’re self-righteous. We stand as a judge over them, porque nos faz sentir melhor sobre nossas realizações espirituais. Isso é o discurso arrogante.

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 desses exemplos são mais óbvios do que outros. Então, como você sabe se é? O que separa o discurso orgulhoso dos fatos afirmando? Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, em seu coração ou as próprias palavras. E quando fazemos isso, tomamos glória que pertence a Deus.

Suas palavras podem reconhecer Deus, mas o que sobre o seu coração? Other people may not be able to tell the difference, but Hannah reminds us that the Lord is a God who knows. E se usarmos as nossas palavras para exaltar a nós mesmos, nós vamos ter que responder a Ele por isso.

No texto Hannah nos diz para não falar orgulhosamente, e então ela diz-nos porquê: porque o Senhor é um Deus que conhece e pesa obras.

Questão 2: Por que temos que responder a Deus para o discurso orgulhoso?

Porque é um ataque a Sua glória.

Se apenas uma dessas duas últimas frases era verdade, it would change a lot. If God knew, mas não foi o juiz, or if God was the judge but didn’t know. But the perfectly just Judge is also the all-knowing God. Não só Deus descobrir, Ele está ouvindo. 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. Ele sabe. E se atacar a Sua glória com o discurso orgulhoso, Ele saberá.

roubando a Deus

Se eu fosse para ir em sua conta bancária, e ter dinheiro e aplicá-lo para a minha conta, é que o roubo? Of course it is. Eu estou tomando algo que pertence a você, e aplicá-lo para mim mesmo. Eu não posso me dar algum do seu dinheiro sem tirá-lo de você. E é errado, porque ele pertence a você.

Quando os seres humanos tentam se dar glória, they rob God of His. You cannot ascribe to yourself praise and glory, sem roubar de Deus. Pride is an attack on God’s glory. Por quê? Because an overestimation of self comes from an underestimation of God. Deixe-me dizer isso novamente: uma superestimação da auto vem de uma subestimação de Deus. E como podemos ver na 1 Samuel 1, Essa subestimação de Deus, também leva a uma subestimação dos outros. Então pensar muito bem de nós mesmos vem pensando muito humilde de Deus, e leva a pensar muito humilde de outros.

Penina foi enganado. Ela superestimou-se, colocando-se no trono Sovereign, as if she opened her own womb. And we’re often guilty of the same. Nós pensamos que nós somos os únicos que devem receber crédito para que a promoção, ou aquelas crianças bem comportadas, ou nossa situação financeira. sim, Deus recompensará o nosso trabalho duro, but that doesn’t guarantee anything. God’s will is the real deciding factor in every situation. O que importa, finalmente, não é a nossa força, nossa sabedoria, ou até mesmo a nossa fidelidade.

Discurso prideful

So pride is wrong. All of us have some pride in our hearts that we must fight. Quando você pensa em seu coração que você merece glória, that itself is a sin. But prideful speech is taking it to another level. How could we, como seres humanos pecaminosos, têm a audácia, não só de pensar que somos dignos da glória de Deus, mas para realmente apresentá-lo dessa forma para os outros? To try to convince others to give us the glory that belongs to God alone. Talking proudly is like not only robbing someone, mas dizendo a todos sobre isso e encorajando-os a fazer o mesmo.

A única coisa é, 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. Que é por isso que Hannah diz que não devemos fazê-lo.

discurso Prideful é escolher uma luta com Deus, which is why it’s inconsistent with the life of a believer. Como ouvimos esta manhã, "Deus resiste aos soberbos, mas dá graça aos humildes. "

Deeds Ponderado

Se não estamos em Cristo, nossas palavras orgulhosas, 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, por favor conhecê-Lo. Abandonar seu pecado, and throw yourself on His mercy. He was incredibly humble—humble enough to die so that sinners like you and me can live. Ele se levantou da sepultura com todo o poder, e chama os homens para segui-Lo. Gostaríamos muito de falar com você mais sobre isso mais tarde.

Mas, como cristãos, o que isso significa para os nossos atos a serem pesados? 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 estivermos diante de Deus, 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.

tb, we want to please the Father. Of course He’s pleased with us in Christ, mas queremos que Ele esteja satisfeito com as nossas boas obras que saem da fé em Cristo. Queremos agradar nosso Deus amoroso.

Não devemos permitir que as palavras arrogantes de vir de nossas bocas. E embora nós teremos que responder a Deus por nosso discurso orgulhoso, devemos louvar a Deus que os nossos pecados são cobertos em Cristo.

Portanto, se queremos que Deus seja glorificado por nossa fala, como é que vamos combater essa conversa arrogante?

Questão 3: Como nós lutamos Speech orgulhoso?

Fazemos isso por regozijando em Deus.

Devemos vigiar nosso discurso, but that’s not enough. It’s like telling someone with a cold the solution is just to hold their sneeze in. Não, a doença é o que precisa ser atacado.

The proud heart rejoices in itself. But the humble heart rejoices in God. Olhe para as primeiras palavras da oração de Ana em verso 1: “My heart rejoices in the Lord.” Hannah shows us the proper response to the Lord’s blessing. Não apenas regozijando-se o que o Senhor tem dado, mas no Doador próprio. Nossa resposta poderia estar orgulhosos, mas em vez disso deve produzir humildade em nós, porque estamos recebendo um presente de Deus

God gives and takes away. God distributes and withholds. Mas Ele faz tudo para o nosso bem e Sua glória. We falter when we begin to depend on those things too much. Rejoicing in God kills both pride and hopelessness.

Como você se alegrar em Deus? Do what it takes to remind yourself who’s behind everything. Praise God when you receive that check. É por isso que damos graças a Deus antes da nossa comida. Remembering that it’s arrogant to assume our plans will always go forth. Diga Senhor permitindo. Give glory to God when others congratulate you on your accomplishments. Não por um minuto permitir que o seu coração para tomar crédito. Assista seu discurso arrogante. Encontrar as raízes de orgulho em seu coração.

Conclusão

Cada um de nós foi dada uma oportunidade incrível com cada palavra que falamos. Nós começamos a usar nossas palavras para glorificar a Deus que nos criou. Nós começamos a usar nossas palavras para ajudar os outros a ver a Deus pelo glorioso Senhor que Ele é.

So my encouragement is not to use your words to exalt yourself. Ao invés, usá-los para fazer o que você foi criado para fazer-dar glória a Deus. Tudo pertence a Ele de qualquer maneira.

Vamos rezar.

    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.
    Obrigado por compartilhar.

    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 LeeResposta

      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?

      • JesseResposta

        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. JoãoResposta

    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. DaughterofGodResposta

    I am having a hard time with this quote: “Quando você pensa em seu coração que você merece glória, 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.

  10. JBResposta

    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 LeeResposta

      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. Romanos 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, pensamentos, and prayers. Your words are just that, palavras. 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.

  14. JBResposta

    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
