Discursul mândru și slava lui Dumnezeu

Introducere

iubesc copiii. One of the reasons I love kids is because they show us ourselves. They’re like little mirrors. Să-ți spun ce vreau să spun. Copiii au destul de mult toate aceleași probleme pe care le avem, dar aceste probleme sunt doar mult mai evident pentru că ei nu știu cum să le ascund încă. Acest lucru este foarte clar atunci când copiii fac lucruri pe care nu ar trebui să facă.

Ai văzut vreodată un copil atinge ceva care nu ar trebui să atingă? They’ll look around to see if you’re looking. Ei nu le pasă dacă un alt copil este în căutarea; ei pur și simplu nu doresc adulți sau părinți pentru a vedea. De ce fac asta, deşi? Because they know you’re in charge, și ei nu doresc să afli pentru că ei știu că ești cel pe care trebuie să răspundă.

Adults are the same way. Often we’re OK with doing things we’re not supposed to do, atâta timp cât persoana trebuie să răspundă la nu afla. Te bucuri să accelereze până când vedeți polițiști înainte. Poate că suntem bucuroși să plece devreme de la muncă, atâta timp cât șeful nostru nu afla. 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, cu excepția cazului este autoritatea trebuie să răspundă.

În 1 Samuel 2, Hannah prays in response to the birth of her son Samuel. And in this prayer, ea avertizează alții, să nu comită un anumit păcat, pentru că judecătorul lor se uită. Rândul său, cu mine 1 Capitolul Samuel 2, verset 3.

Nu Continuă să vorbești cu mândrie sau lasa gura vorbesc o astfel de aroganță, căci Domnul este un Dumnezeu care știe, și prin el faptele sunt cântărite.
(1 Samuel 2:3)

În acest text, Hannah ne avertizează împotriva vorbire prideful, because God will find out and He’ll hold us accountable for it. Asta e ceea ce cred că punctul principal al acestui verset este: If you talk proudly, va trebui să răspundă la Dumnezeu pentru ea.

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, pentru că ei contează pentru Dumnezeu, and He’s the One you have to answer to. We won’t finally answer to our parents, sau prietenii noștri, sau pastorii noștri, ci lui Dumnezeu.

Cu asta în minte, Vreau să pun câteva întrebări pentru a înțelege mai bine textul.

Întrebare 1: Ce inseamna pentru a vorbi cu mândrie?

Aceasta înseamnă a folosi cuvintele tale pentru a te înălța.

fundal

Now typically we would think of self-exalting words as just simply bragging about how amazing we are, dar există mai multe modalități de a vorbi cu mândrie. Și cred că unul dintre modurile în care Hannah are în minte este ceea ce vedem în capitolul 1.

Hannah was the wife of a man named Elkanah. She wasn’t his only wife though. El a mai avea o soție a cărui nume era Penina. Penina avea copii, dar Hannah era stearpă. Penina ar ironiza, practic, Hannah despre ea. Și din cauza ariditate ei și această Hannah necajeste era mâhnit și ea plîngea.

Cred că Penina este un exemplu al discursului prideful Hannah ne avertizează împotriva. Penina nu a fost pur și simplu subliniind faptul că ea a avut copii. Ea nu a fost doar încercarea de a reaminti Hannah faptelor. 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, ceea ce nu era adevărat. Scripture clearly says that children are a gift from the Lord. Peninnah was talking proudly, și ea ar trebui să răspundă la Dumnezeu pentru ea.

Noi moduri de Discuție Proudly

Fie că ne recunoaștem sau nu, 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. Dar noi nu suntem lăudând pe Dumnezeu pentru ea; the goal is making ourselves look better. I’ve caught myself doing this on many occasions. Poate rulează într-un vechi prieten și mi-au ce am făcut întreb. Aș putea spune rap, dar mi-ar indica mai degrabă să premii sau alte realizări.

2. Sau cum despre lucrurile pe care le spunem despre alții? Sometimes we slander others. Noi vrem să le picteze într-o lumină proastă, asa ca vom arata bine. Maybe at work we point out that a particular co-worker is pretty lazy, astfel încât oamenii vor observa diferența dintre voi doi. Sau, poate, în loc să fie milostiv cu alții, we’re self-righteous. We stand as a judge over them, pentru că ne face să ne simțim mai bine despre realizările noastre spirituale. Acesta este discursul prideful.

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.

Unele dintre aceste exemple sunt mai evidente decât altele. Deci, cum știi dacă este? Ceea ce separă discursul mândru de fapte care afirmă? Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, în inima ta sau cuvintele în sine. Iar când facem asta, vom lua slava care aparține lui Dumnezeu.

Cuvintele tale pot recunoaște pe Dumnezeu, dar ceea ce despre inima ta? Other people may not be able to tell the difference, but Hannah reminds us that the Lord is a God who knows. Iar dacă folosim cuvintele noastre pentru a ne înălța, va trebui să răspundă la El pentru ea.

În textul Hannah ne spune să nu vorbească cu mândrie, și apoi ea ne spune de ce: căci Domnul este un Dumnezeu care știe și cântărește faptele.

Întrebare 2: De ce trebuie sa raspuns la Dumnezeu pentru vorbire Proud?

Pentru că este un atac asupra slavei Lui.

În cazul în care numai unul dintre aceste ultime două fraze era adevărat, it would change a lot. If God knew, dar nu a fost judecătorul, or if God was the judge but didn’t know. But the perfectly just Judge is also the all-knowing God. Nu numai că Dumnezeu va afla, El ascultă. 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. El stie. Și, dacă ne atacă slava Lui cu vorbire mândru, El va ști.

jupuială Dumnezeu

Dacă aș fi fost să intru în contul tău bancar, și să ia banii și să o aplice în contul meu, este că furtul? Of course it is. Fac ceva ce îți aparține, și se aplică pentru mine. Nu pot să mă dau nici banii tai fara sa-l de la tine. Și este greșită, deoarece aparține.

Atunci când ființele umane încearcă să se dea slavă, they rob God of His. You cannot ascribe to yourself praise and glory, fără a fura de la Dumnezeu. Pride is an attack on God’s glory. De ce? Because an overestimation of self comes from an underestimation of God. Permiteți-mi să spun că din nou: o supraestimare de sine provine dintr-o subestimare a lui Dumnezeu. Și, după cum vom vedea în 1 Samuel 1, această subestimare a lui Dumnezeu, De asemenea, conduce la subestimarea altora. Așa că gândesc prea mare de a ne vine de la gândirea prea umilă a lui Dumnezeu, și conduce la gândire prea umil altora.

Penina a fost înșelat. Ea se supraestimate punându-se pe tron ​​Sovereign, as if she opened her own womb. And we’re often guilty of the same. Noi credem că suntem cei care ar trebui sa de credit pentru promovarea, sau acei copii s-au comportat bine-, sau situația noastră financiară. da, Dumnezeu îi va răsplăti munca noastră grea, but that doesn’t guarantee anything. God’s will is the real deciding factor in every situation. Ceea ce contează în cele din urmă nu este puterea noastră, înțelepciunea noastră, sau chiar credincioșia noastră.

Discursul prideful

So pride is wrong. All of us have some pride in our hearts that we must fight. Atunci când crezi în inima ta că meriți glorie, that itself is a sin. But prideful speech is taking it to another level. How could we, ca ființe umane păcătoase, au îndrăzneala, nu numai să creadă că suntem vrednici de slava lui Dumnezeu, dar, de fapt, să prezinte în acest fel altora? To try to convince others to give us the glory that belongs to God alone. Talking proudly is like not only robbing someone, dar spune tuturor despre el și încurajându-i să facă același lucru.

Singurul lucru pe care este, 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. Motiv pentru care spune Hannah că nu ar trebui să facă.

Discursul prideful este cules de o luptă cu Dumnezeu, which is why it’s inconsistent with the life of a believer. Așa cum am auzit în această dimineață, "Dumnezeu se opune celor mândri, dar dă har celor smeriți. "

Deeds Strivite

Dacă noi nu suntem în Hristos, cuvintele noastre mândru, 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, vă rugăm să-l cunosc. Rândul său, de păcatul tău, and throw yourself on His mercy. He was incredibly humble—humble enough to die so that sinners like you and me can live. Se ridică din mormânt cu toată puterea, și solicită ca oamenii să-L urmeze. Ne-ar plăcea să vorbim mai mult despre asta după aceea.

Dar, ca și creștini, Ce înseamnă pentru faptele noastre să fie cântărite? 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. Atunci când ne aflăm în fața lui Dumnezeu, 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.

De asemenea, we want to please the Father. Of course He’s pleased with us in Christ, dar noi vrem ca El să fie mulțumit cu faptele noastre bune care vin din credința în Hristos. Noi vrem să vă rugăm Dumnezeul nostru iubitor.

Nu trebuie să permitem cuvinte arogante să vină din gura. Și, deși va trebui să răspundă la Dumnezeu pentru discursul nostru mândru, ar trebui să ne lăudăm pe Dumnezeu că păcatele noastre sunt acoperite în Hristos.

Deci, dacă vrem ca Dumnezeu să fie glorificat prin discursul nostru, cum putem lupta cu această discuție arogant?

Întrebare 3: Cum putem lupta Speech Proud?

Noi o facem de bucurie în Dumnezeu.

Ar trebui să ne urmăriți discursul nostru, but that’s not enough. It’s like telling someone with a cold the solution is just to hold their sneeze in. Nu, boala este ceea ce trebuie să fie atacat.

The proud heart rejoices in itself. But the humble heart rejoices in God. Uită-te la primele cuvinte ale rugăciunii Anei în versuri 1: “My heart rejoices in the Lord.” Hannah shows us the proper response to the Lord’s blessing. Nu doar bucurându-se în ceea ce a dat Domnul, dar în Dătătorul Însuși. Răspunsul nostru ar putea fi mândru, dar, în schimb, ar trebui să producă umilință în noi, pentru că noi primim un dar de la Dumnezeu

God gives and takes away. God distributes and withholds. Dar El face totul pentru binele nostru și slava Sa.. We falter when we begin to depend on those things too much. Rejoicing in God kills both pride and hopelessness.

Cum te bucura în Dumnezeu? Do what it takes to remind yourself who’s behind everything. Praise God when you receive that check. Acesta este motivul pentru care mulțumim lui Dumnezeu înainte ca mâncarea noastră. Remembering that it’s arrogant to assume our plans will always go forth. Zice Domnul dispus. Give glory to God when others congratulate you on your accomplishments. Nu pentru un minut permite inimii să ia credit. Uita-te la discursul prideful. Găsi rădăcinile de mândrie în inima ta.

Concluzie

Fiecare dintre noi unic a fost oferit o oportunitate uimitoare cu fiecare cuvânt vorbim. Vom ajunge să folosească cuvintele noastre să-L slăvească pe Dumnezeul care ne-a făcut. Vom ajunge să folosească cuvintele noastre pentru a ajuta pe ceilalți să vadă pe Dumnezeu pentru Domnul glorios că El este.

So my encouragement is not to use your words to exalt yourself. In schimb, le folosesc pentru a face ceea ce au fost create pentru a face-a da slavă lui Dumnezeu. Totul face parte din el, oricum.

Să ne rugăm.

  5. Eveno M.Răspuns

    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?

    • excursie LeeRăspuns

      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?

      • JesseRăspuns

        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. IoanRăspuns

    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. DaughterofGodRăspuns

    I am having a hard time with this quote: “Atunci când crezi în inima ta că meriți glorie, 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. MichaelRăspuns

    I just want to take this opportunity to thank you (excursie 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.

    • excursie LeeRăspuns

      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, gânduri, and prayers. Your words are just that, cuvinte. 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!

    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. JBRăspuns

    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
