  • the basics of your faith so that
  • 00:00:39.120 --> 00:00:40.180
  • - Beth: Today, we're going
  • 00:00:55.000 --> 00:00:55.250
  • to talk about I want to live
  • 00:00:55.250 --> 00:00:58.080
  • the Christian life.
  • 00:00:58.080 --> 00:01:01.000
  • Supposedly this is a life of
  • 00:01:01.000 --> 00:01:02.120
  • rest and peace.
  • 00:01:02.120 --> 00:01:04.280
  • How does that work?
  • 00:01:04.280 --> 00:01:06.060
  • With that in mind then let's go
  • 00:01:06.060 --> 00:01:07.040
  • over to Hebrews 4.
  • 00:01:07.230 --> 00:01:10.230
  • In Hebrews 4, verse 1 we're told
  • 00:01:10.240 --> 00:01:13.240
  • this, "Therefore, since a
  • 00:01:13.240 --> 00:01:14.270
  • promise remains of entering His
  • 00:01:14.270 --> 00:01:17.190
  • rest, let us fear lest any of
  • 00:01:17.260 --> 00:01:20.260
  • you seem to have come short
  • 00:01:20.260 --> 00:01:22.010
  • of it.
  • 00:01:22.010 --> 00:01:23.080
  • For indeed the gospel was
  • 00:01:23.080 --> 00:01:24.070
  • preached to us as well as
  • 00:01:24.070 --> 00:01:25.100
  • to them," those in the old
  • 00:01:25.100 --> 00:01:26.130
  • covenant, Old Testament, "but
  • 00:01:26.130 --> 00:01:27.270
  • the word which they heard did
  • 00:01:27.270 --> 00:01:29.010
  • not profit them, not being mixed
  • 00:01:29.010 --> 00:01:30.090
  • with faith in those who heard
  • 00:01:30.090 --> 00:01:32.030
  • it."
  • 00:01:32.030 --> 00:01:33.040
  • Verse 3, "For we who have
  • 00:01:33.040 --> 00:01:34.190
  • believed do enter into rest."
  • 00:01:35.100 --> 00:01:38.100
  • So, we're told in the Bible that
  • 00:01:38.100 --> 00:01:39.210
  • there is this thing called rest.
  • 00:01:39.210 --> 00:01:40.260
  • You can live the Christian life
  • 00:01:40.260 --> 00:01:42.080
  • in rest.
  • 00:01:42.080 --> 00:01:43.200
  • And in peace.
  • 00:01:43.200 --> 00:01:44.200
  • This thing called rest exists.
  • 00:01:44.200 --> 00:01:46.160
  • And those who believe
  • 00:01:46.160 --> 00:01:48.040
  • enter into rest.
  • 00:01:48.040 --> 00:01:49.240
  • Believe what?
  • 00:01:49.240 --> 00:01:51.250
  • What is it they're supposed
  • 00:01:51.250 --> 00:01:52.150
  • to believe?
  • 00:01:52.150 --> 00:01:53.130
  • Jesus gave us a little bit of a
  • 00:01:53.130 --> 00:01:54.130
  • clue in Matthew 11.
  • 00:01:54.130 --> 00:01:56.020
  • He said, "Come to me all you who
  • 00:01:56.020 --> 00:01:57.210
  • are weary and heavy laden."
  • 00:01:57.210 --> 00:02:00.210
  • Burdened down, tired.
  • 00:02:00.210 --> 00:02:03.140
  • Come to me and I'll give you
  • 00:02:03.140 --> 00:02:04.110
  • rest.
  • 00:02:04.110 --> 00:02:05.110
  • My burden is easy, my yoke is
  • 00:02:05.110 --> 00:02:06.130
  • light.
  • 00:02:06.130 --> 00:02:07.260
  • "Learn from me," he says.
  • 00:02:07.260 --> 00:02:10.030
  • "I'm going to show you how to
  • 00:02:10.030 --> 00:02:10.270
  • live this Christian life."
  • 00:02:10.270 --> 00:02:12.090
  • And what happens often for a lot
  • 00:02:12.090 --> 00:02:14.120
  • of us is we are looking for the
  • 00:02:14.120 --> 00:02:15.280
  • formula.
  • 00:02:15.280 --> 00:02:17.170
  • We're looking for the magic
  • 00:02:17.170 --> 00:02:18.100
  • bullet, the secret sauce.
  • 00:02:18.100 --> 00:02:19.210
  • We're looking for the list.
  • 00:02:19.210 --> 00:02:21.020
  • Give me the list.
  • 00:02:21.020 --> 00:02:22.030
  • Tell me the things I'm supposed
  • 00:02:22.030 --> 00:02:23.040
  • to do, tell me the things I'm
  • 00:02:23.040 --> 00:02:24.060
  • not supposed to do.
  • 00:02:24.060 --> 00:02:26.000
  • I can get that.
  • 00:02:26.000 --> 00:02:27.010
  • That's what we're looking for.
  • 00:02:27.010 --> 00:02:28.060
  • But then Jesus says things like
  • 00:02:28.060 --> 00:02:29.180
  • this, "Just come to me."
  • 00:02:29.180 --> 00:02:32.070
  • "Okay, I know, Jesus, I'm coming
  • 00:02:32.070 --> 00:02:33.200
  • to you, I'm coming to you, fine.
  • 00:02:33.200 --> 00:02:34.220
  • But what do you want me to do?
  • 00:02:34.220 --> 00:02:37.160
  • What do you want me to do?"
  • 00:02:37.160 --> 00:02:39.000
  • And we'll see here as we get
  • 00:02:39.000 --> 00:02:40.100
  • into this that we think, do, do,
  • 00:02:40.100 --> 00:02:42.130
  • do, and God says it's been done.
  • 00:02:43.110 --> 00:02:46.110
  • We're thinking do, do, do,
  • 00:02:46.110 --> 00:02:47.200
  • checklist got that.
  • 00:02:47.200 --> 00:02:49.250
  • And Jesus is like, "Just come to
  • 00:02:49.250 --> 00:02:51.050
  • me, it's been done."
  • 00:02:51.050 --> 00:02:53.210
  • So, with that in mind we're
  • 00:02:53.210 --> 00:02:54.230
  • going to look at this thing
  • 00:02:54.230 --> 00:02:55.160
  • called the new covenant.
  • 00:02:56.210 --> 00:02:59.210
  • The new covenant.
  • 00:02:59.210 --> 00:03:01.090
  • This new agreement.
  • 00:03:01.090 --> 00:03:03.080
  • This new contract.
  • 00:03:03.080 --> 00:03:04.080
  • This new covenant that Jesus
  • 00:03:04.170 --> 00:03:07.170
  • came to the earth to bring.
  • 00:03:08.080 --> 00:03:11.080
  • To mediate.
  • 00:03:11.080 --> 00:03:12.150
  • To implement.
  • 00:03:12.150 --> 00:03:13.210
  • To activate.
  • 00:03:13.210 --> 00:03:15.170
  • This new agreement,
  • 00:03:15.170 --> 00:03:17.060
  • this new contract.
  • 00:03:17.060 --> 00:03:18.150
  • This new covenant
  • 00:03:18.150 --> 00:03:20.050
  • that is not like the old.
  • 00:03:20.050 --> 00:03:22.030
  • So, let's look at the new
  • 00:03:22.030 --> 00:03:22.250
  • and the old and see
  • 00:03:22.250 --> 00:03:24.120
  • what we can learn.
  • 00:03:24.120 --> 00:03:25.060
  • If you'll go over
  • 00:03:25.060 --> 00:03:26.020
  • to 2 Corinthians 3,
  • 00:03:26.020 --> 00:03:28.150
  • let's take a look at this.
  • 00:03:28.150 --> 00:03:30.030
  • 2 Corinthians 3, verse 4 says,
  • 00:03:30.030 --> 00:03:32.180
  • "We are confident about all this
  • 00:03:32.180 --> 00:03:34.190
  • because of our great trust in
  • 00:03:34.190 --> 00:03:35.210
  • God through Christ, it is not
  • 00:03:35.210 --> 00:03:36.280
  • that we think we are qualified
  • 00:03:36.280 --> 00:03:38.260
  • to do anything on our own.
  • 00:03:38.260 --> 00:03:40.190
  • Our qualification comes
  • 00:03:40.190 --> 00:03:41.200
  • from God.
  • 00:03:41.200 --> 00:03:42.210
  • He has enabled us to be
  • 00:03:42.210 --> 00:03:43.270
  • ministers of His new covenant.
  • 00:03:45.110 --> 00:03:48.110
  • This is a covenant not of
  • 00:03:48.110 --> 00:03:49.180
  • written laws, but of the spirit.
  • 00:03:49.180 --> 00:03:52.130
  • The old, written covenant ends
  • 00:03:52.130 --> 00:03:53.240
  • in death.
  • 00:03:53.240 --> 00:03:55.120
  • But under the new covenant the
  • 00:03:55.120 --> 00:03:56.290
  • Spirit gives life.
  • 00:03:56.290 --> 00:03:59.030
  • The old way with laws etched in
  • 00:03:59.030 --> 00:04:01.050
  • stone led to death though it
  • 00:04:01.050 --> 00:04:03.090
  • began with such glory that the
  • 00:04:03.090 --> 00:04:05.260
  • people of Israel could not bear
  • 00:04:05.260 --> 00:04:07.070
  • to look at Moses' face for his
  • 00:04:07.070 --> 00:04:08.250
  • face shown with the glory of God
  • 00:04:08.250 --> 00:04:10.090
  • even though the brightness was
  • 00:04:10.090 --> 00:04:12.050
  • already fading away."
  • 00:04:12.050 --> 00:04:14.050
  • He's saying in the Old Testament
  • 00:04:14.050 --> 00:04:15.210
  • when God gave the old covenant,
  • 00:04:15.210 --> 00:04:17.140
  • or what we might know is,
  • 00:04:17.140 --> 00:04:18.160
  • sometimes as
  • 00:04:18.160 --> 00:04:19.080
  • the Ten Commandments.
  • 00:04:19.080 --> 00:04:21.030
  • Moses' face was lit up
  • 00:04:21.030 --> 00:04:23.070
  • like a candle from God's glory
  • 00:04:23.070 --> 00:04:25.270
  • and he's saying
  • 00:04:25.270 --> 00:04:26.250
  • that old covenant,
  • 00:04:26.250 --> 00:04:28.120
  • that old agreement,
  • 00:04:28.120 --> 00:04:29.170
  • those old rules,
  • 00:04:29.170 --> 00:04:30.260
  • they were pretty glorious,
  • 00:04:30.260 --> 00:04:31.280
  • so glorious that Moses' face
  • 00:04:31.280 --> 00:04:33.060
  • was lit up, but do you know
  • 00:04:33.060 --> 00:04:34.070
  • the minute he got the
  • 00:04:34.070 --> 00:04:35.090
  • Old Covenant it started to fade
  • 00:04:35.090 --> 00:04:36.140
  • away because there was something
  • 00:04:36.140 --> 00:04:37.190
  • brighter coming.
  • 00:04:37.190 --> 00:04:39.260
  • Shouldn't we expect far greater
  • 00:04:39.260 --> 00:04:41.290
  • glory under the new way now that
  • 00:04:41.290 --> 00:04:43.240
  • the Holy Spirit is giving life?
  • 00:04:43.240 --> 00:04:45.030
  • If the old way which brings
  • 00:04:45.040 --> 00:04:48.040
  • condemnation was glorious how
  • 00:04:48.040 --> 00:04:50.180
  • much more glorious is the new
  • 00:04:50.180 --> 00:04:52.200
  • way?
  • 00:04:52.200 --> 00:04:54.120
  • Which makes us right with God.
  • 00:04:54.120 --> 00:04:55.270
  • The old one brought
  • 00:04:55.270 --> 00:04:56.240
  • condemnation,
  • 00:04:56.240 --> 00:04:58.140
  • because we couldn't keep
  • 00:04:58.140 --> 00:04:59.000
  • the Ten Commandments.
  • 00:04:59.000 --> 00:05:00.180
  • And it was glorious.
  • 00:05:00.180 --> 00:05:01.250
  • That was a glorious agreement.
  • 00:05:01.250 --> 00:05:04.150
  • But the new agreement is even
  • 00:05:04.150 --> 00:05:06.160
  • more glorious because it makes
  • 00:05:06.160 --> 00:05:08.240
  • us right with God.
  • 00:05:08.240 --> 00:05:10.160
  • God actually gives us his
  • 00:05:10.160 --> 00:05:11.250
  • righteousness as a gift.
  • 00:05:11.250 --> 00:05:14.110
  • Verse 10, "In fact, the first
  • 00:05:14.110 --> 00:05:16.000
  • glory was not glorious at all
  • 00:05:16.000 --> 00:05:17.230
  • compared with the overwhelming
  • 00:05:17.230 --> 00:05:19.060
  • glory of the new way."
  • 00:05:19.060 --> 00:05:21.240
  • Verse 11, "So, if the old way
  • 00:05:21.240 --> 00:05:24.030
  • which has been replaced,"
  • 00:05:24.030 --> 00:05:26.030
  • everybody say, "replaced."
  • 00:05:26.030 --> 00:05:28.060
  • "Replaced was glorious how much
  • 00:05:28.060 --> 00:05:30.060
  • more glorious is this new which
  • 00:05:30.060 --> 00:05:32.080
  • remains forever?"
  • 00:05:32.080 --> 00:05:34.210
  • Let's talk about the old and the
  • 00:05:34.210 --> 00:05:36.180
  • new covenants.
  • 00:05:36.180 --> 00:05:39.000
  • What is he telling us here?
  • 00:05:39.000 --> 00:05:40.050
  • He's saying there was this old
  • 00:05:40.050 --> 00:05:42.020
  • covenant, now there's this new
  • 00:05:42.020 --> 00:05:43.070
  • one.
  • 00:05:43.070 --> 00:05:44.080
  • The word covenant, let me give
  • 00:05:44.080 --> 00:05:45.070
  • you some definitions here.
  • 00:05:45.070 --> 00:05:46.130
  • A covenant is not a term we use
  • 00:05:46.130 --> 00:05:48.210
  • a lot but we can understand it
  • 00:05:48.210 --> 00:05:50.290
  • when we think an agreement, a
  • 00:05:50.290 --> 00:05:52.120
  • contract would be in some ways
  • 00:05:52.120 --> 00:05:54.210
  • we would use it.
  • 00:05:54.210 --> 00:05:55.170
  • Although a covenant is actually
  • 00:05:55.170 --> 00:05:56.130
  • even stronger.
  • 00:05:56.130 --> 00:05:57.120
  • The most often we would see the
  • 00:05:57.120 --> 00:05:58.200
  • word covenant used in our world
  • 00:05:58.200 --> 00:05:59.270
  • is in marriage,
  • 00:05:59.270 --> 00:06:01.220
  • a marriage covenant.
  • 00:06:01.220 --> 00:06:03.020
  • With a contract, if you have a
  • 00:06:03.110 --> 00:06:06.110
  • contract with somebody in
  • 00:06:06.110 --> 00:06:07.130
  • business or, you know, a college
  • 00:06:07.130 --> 00:06:09.040
  • loan contract or something,
  • 00:06:09.040 --> 00:06:11.120
  • usually a contract has to do
  • 00:06:11.120 --> 00:06:13.080
  • with your stuff.
  • 00:06:13.080 --> 00:06:15.120
  • Your stuff becomes my stuff.
  • 00:06:15.120 --> 00:06:16.290
  • My stuff becomes your stuff, we
  • 00:06:16.290 --> 00:06:18.080
  • have a contract.
  • 00:06:18.080 --> 00:06:19.100
  • We have an agreement.
  • 00:06:19.100 --> 00:06:20.270
  • You give me $10.000, I will pay
  • 00:06:20.270 --> 00:06:22.170
  • you back $10.000 with interest.
  • 00:06:22.170 --> 00:06:24.130
  • Your stuff is my stuff, my stuff
  • 00:06:24.130 --> 00:06:26.030
  • is your stuff.
  • 00:06:26.030 --> 00:06:27.210
  • We have a contract, we have an
  • 00:06:27.210 --> 00:06:28.150
  • agreement.
  • 00:06:28.150 --> 00:06:30.070
  • But a covenant isn't about just
  • 00:06:30.070 --> 00:06:31.160
  • our stuff, a covenant is about
  • 00:06:31.160 --> 00:06:33.190
  • our lives.
  • 00:06:33.190 --> 00:06:36.070
  • You get my life,
  • 00:06:36.070 --> 00:06:37.100
  • I get your life.
  • 00:06:37.100 --> 00:06:39.020
  • So, for an example, in marriage
  • 00:06:39.020 --> 00:06:40.170
  • that would be a good one to
  • 00:06:40.170 --> 00:06:41.050
  • think about.
  • 00:06:41.050 --> 00:06:41.240
  • In marriage, we have an
  • 00:06:41.240 --> 00:06:43.020
  • agreement, we have a contract, a
  • 00:06:43.020 --> 00:06:44.150
  • legal document but we have a
  • 00:06:44.150 --> 00:06:45.170
  • covenant.
  • 00:06:45.170 --> 00:06:46.160
  • Like, when Jeff and I got
  • 00:06:46.160 --> 00:06:47.030
  • married he got all my stuff.
  • 00:06:47.030 --> 00:06:49.230
  • Now, in my case,
  • 00:06:49.230 --> 00:06:50.160
  • I didn't have much stuff.
  • 00:06:50.160 --> 00:06:52.100
  • I had books and tapes.
  • 00:06:52.100 --> 00:06:54.090
  • That's it.
  • 00:06:54.090 --> 00:06:54.240
  • I had books and tapes because I
  • 00:06:54.240 --> 00:06:55.280
  • was in Bible school and that's
  • 00:06:55.280 --> 00:06:57.250
  • about what I had.
  • 00:06:57.250 --> 00:06:58.280
  • I had boxes of books and boxes
  • 00:06:58.280 --> 00:07:00.190
  • of cassette tapes teaching the
  • 00:07:00.190 --> 00:07:02.210
  • Bible.
  • 00:07:02.210 --> 00:07:04.050
  • When I came into Jeff's life
  • 00:07:04.050 --> 00:07:06.140
  • though, he had a lot of stuff.
  • 00:07:06.140 --> 00:07:08.140
  • He had a house, a car, food,
  • 00:07:08.180 --> 00:07:11.180
  • furniture.
  • 00:07:11.180 --> 00:07:14.060
  • He had stuff, a lawnmower.
  • 00:07:14.200 --> 00:07:17.200
  • I mean, he had stuff.
  • 00:07:17.200 --> 00:07:19.060
  • So when we got married, all of
  • 00:07:19.060 --> 00:07:20.150
  • my stuff became his and he was
  • 00:07:20.150 --> 00:07:22.210
  • thrilled.
  • 00:07:22.210 --> 00:07:25.120
  • And all of his stuff became
  • 00:07:25.120 --> 00:07:26.280
  • mine.
  • 00:07:26.280 --> 00:07:28.040
  • 'Cause in marriage, in that
  • 00:07:28.040 --> 00:07:29.030
  • covenant, in that contract it's
  • 00:07:29.030 --> 00:07:31.080
  • one and the same.
  • 00:07:31.080 --> 00:07:32.180
  • But more than that, I became
  • 00:07:32.180 --> 00:07:34.220
  • his.
  • 00:07:34.220 --> 00:07:36.030
  • And he became mine.
  • 00:07:36.030 --> 00:07:38.100
  • The person.
  • 00:07:38.100 --> 00:07:40.040
  • This is what a covenant is about
  • 00:07:40.040 --> 00:07:41.240
  • and this is what God wants with
  • 00:07:41.240 --> 00:07:42.250
  • you and I.
  • 00:07:42.250 --> 00:07:43.140
  • It's about a relationship.
  • 00:07:43.140 --> 00:07:44.080
  • I mean the whole point of all of
  • 00:07:44.080 --> 00:07:46.020
  • this is that God wanted a
  • 00:07:46.020 --> 00:07:47.020
  • relationship with you and I.
  • 00:07:47.020 --> 00:07:49.150
  • He didn't just want all of us,
  • 00:07:49.150 --> 00:07:50.250
  • he wanted us to have all of him.
  • 00:07:50.250 --> 00:07:53.080
  • That was the covenant.
  • 00:07:53.080 --> 00:07:54.260
  • I'm going to give you all of me,
  • 00:07:54.260 --> 00:07:56.080
  • all my stuff, but not just my
  • 00:07:56.080 --> 00:07:58.160
  • stuff, all of me.
  • 00:07:58.160 --> 00:08:01.060
  • And that we're going to give him
  • 00:08:01.060 --> 00:08:02.010
  • our books and tapes.
  • 00:08:02.010 --> 00:08:03.240
  • And all of us.
  • 00:08:03.240 --> 00:08:05.290
  • Amen.
  • 00:08:05.290 --> 00:08:07.020
  • So in the old covenant, the old
  • 00:08:07.020 --> 00:08:09.200
  • law, you know we have our
  • 00:08:09.200 --> 00:08:10.230
  • Bibles, and in the Bible,
  • 00:08:10.230 --> 00:08:11.270
  • there's the Old Testament and
  • 00:08:11.270 --> 00:08:13.000
  • the New Testament.
  • 00:08:13.000 --> 00:08:14.090
  • In the Old Testament, or the old
  • 00:08:14.090 --> 00:08:15.260
  • covenant, there were certain
  • 00:08:15.260 --> 00:08:17.160
  • agreements, certain things they
  • 00:08:17.160 --> 00:08:18.260
  • had to abide by.
  • 00:08:18.260 --> 00:08:20.070
  • To make it simple and basic, I
  • 00:08:20.070 --> 00:08:22.020
  • mean we know that they had laws
  • 00:08:22.020 --> 00:08:23.180
  • to keep, rules and regulations
  • 00:08:23.180 --> 00:08:24.290
  • to keep like the Ten
  • 00:08:24.290 --> 00:08:26.060
  • Commandments, for an example,
  • 00:08:26.060 --> 00:08:28.210
  • and the Old Testament was set up
  • 00:08:28.210 --> 00:08:30.080
  • kind with the, "If/then."
  • 00:08:30.080 --> 00:08:32.070
  • If you keep these commandments,
  • 00:08:32.070 --> 00:08:34.020
  • then you'll get these blessings.
  • 00:08:34.120 --> 00:08:37.120
  • That was basically the premise.
  • 00:08:37.120 --> 00:08:40.090
  • If you do this, then you'll get
  • 00:08:40.090 --> 00:08:41.070
  • this.
  • 00:08:41.070 --> 00:08:43.040
  • The new covenant is not like
  • 00:08:43.040 --> 00:08:44.080
  • that.
  • 00:08:44.080 --> 00:08:44.250
  • The new covenant is,
  • 00:08:44.250 --> 00:08:45.260
  • "Because/then."
  • 00:08:45.260 --> 00:08:47.040
  • Now, a lot of us, we still live
  • 00:08:47.040 --> 00:08:48.230
  • under if/then.
  • 00:08:48.230 --> 00:08:50.060
  • Well, if I did all these things
  • 00:08:50.060 --> 00:08:51.140
  • that please the Lord.
  • 00:08:51.140 --> 00:08:52.160
  • If I pray, if I read my Bible,
  • 00:08:52.160 --> 00:08:54.220
  • if I go to church, if I serve,
  • 00:08:54.220 --> 00:08:56.260
  • if I'm nice to my neighbor, if I
  • 00:08:56.260 --> 00:08:58.130
  • do all these things, if, if, if,
  • 00:08:58.130 --> 00:09:01.080
  • then the Lord is sort of
  • 00:09:01.080 --> 00:09:03.120
  • obligated to bless me.
  • 00:09:03.120 --> 00:09:05.290
  • But that's not the new covenant.
  • 00:09:06.120 --> 00:09:09.120
  • That was the old covenant.
  • 00:09:09.120 --> 00:09:11.160
  • But the old covenant according
  • 00:09:11.160 --> 00:09:12.270
  • to this has been replaced.
  • 00:09:12.270 --> 00:09:15.130
  • Like, it's obsolete,
  • 00:09:15.130 --> 00:09:16.290
  • not in effect for you and I.
  • 00:09:16.290 --> 00:09:19.070
  • The purpose of the old covenant
  • 00:09:19.070 --> 00:09:21.060
  • or the old agreement
  • 00:09:21.060 --> 00:09:22.070
  • or what's called, "the law."
  • 00:09:22.070 --> 00:09:23.280
  • The purpose of that in part, was
  • 00:09:23.280 --> 00:09:26.160
  • just to prove to us we can't
  • 00:09:26.160 --> 00:09:28.050
  • keep it.
  • 00:09:28.050 --> 00:09:30.060
  • In fact, it's called a tutor.
  • 00:09:30.060 --> 00:09:31.180
  • It was a tutor to bring us to
  • 00:09:31.180 --> 00:09:33.140
  • Christ.
  • 00:09:33.140 --> 00:09:34.160
  • To have us realize I can't keep
  • 00:09:34.160 --> 00:09:35.170
  • this, their is impossible.
  • 00:09:35.170 --> 00:09:37.120
  • Nobody can keep this.
  • 00:09:37.120 --> 00:09:39.170
  • I can't keep these laws.
  • 00:09:39.170 --> 00:09:41.060
  • And it just showed us that we
  • 00:09:41.060 --> 00:09:42.010
  • couldn't keep it and that we
  • 00:09:42.010 --> 00:09:43.010
  • needed a Savior, we needed a
  • 00:09:43.010 --> 00:09:44.190
  • Redeemer, we needed Christ.
  • 00:09:44.190 --> 00:09:47.160
  • That was the purpose.
  • 00:09:47.160 --> 00:09:48.160
  • But a lot of us still try to
  • 00:09:48.160 --> 00:09:49.120
  • live under that law.
  • 00:09:49.120 --> 00:09:50.170
  • We actually try to mix it.
  • 00:09:50.170 --> 00:09:52.040
  • We try to live under the Ten
  • 00:09:52.040 --> 00:09:53.040
  • Commandments and do all the dos
  • 00:09:53.040 --> 00:09:54.130
  • and don'ts and don't forget
  • 00:09:54.130 --> 00:09:55.270
  • about--and over here Jesus loves
  • 00:09:55.270 --> 00:09:57.120
  • me, this I know.
  • 00:09:57.120 --> 00:09:58.130
  • And we get confused.
  • 00:09:58.130 --> 00:09:59.130
  • We're like confused Christians.
  • 00:09:59.130 --> 00:10:01.250
  • So what I believe you're going
  • 00:10:01.250 --> 00:10:02.270
  • to experience as we get into
  • 00:10:02.270 --> 00:10:03.260
  • this and as the Lord helps us, I
  • 00:10:03.260 --> 00:10:05.100
  • believe what you're going to
  • 00:10:05.100 --> 00:10:06.140
  • experience is happy rest.
  • 00:10:07.080 --> 00:10:10.080
  • Your heart is going to be happy.
  • 00:10:10.080 --> 00:10:11.250
  • You're going to go, "Is this too
  • 00:10:11.250 --> 00:10:12.190
  • good to be true?
  • 00:10:12.190 --> 00:10:14.100
  • Okay, what did she forget,
  • 00:10:14.100 --> 00:10:15.030
  • what's the catch?
  • 00:10:15.030 --> 00:10:16.060
  • Obviously she forgot, like, a
  • 00:10:16.060 --> 00:10:17.010
  • bunch of things.
  • 00:10:17.010 --> 00:10:18.140
  • She forgot to tell us a bunch of
  • 00:10:18.140 --> 00:10:19.110
  • things.
  • 00:10:19.110 --> 00:10:20.220
  • What's the catch here?"
  • 00:10:20.220 --> 00:10:21.230
  • No, your heart's going to be
  • 00:10:21.230 --> 00:10:22.220
  • happy.
  • 00:10:22.220 --> 00:10:23.250
  • Which is how God wants it.
  • 00:10:23.250 --> 00:10:24.220
  • He wants your heart filled with
  • 00:10:24.220 --> 00:10:25.180
  • joy.
  • 00:10:25.180 --> 00:10:26.220
  • I mean, how many times did Jesus
  • 00:10:26.220 --> 00:10:27.190
  • say in John 15, "I have told you
  • 00:10:27.190 --> 00:10:30.120
  • these things so that your joy
  • 00:10:30.180 --> 00:10:33.180
  • would be full."
  • 00:10:33.180 --> 00:10:35.290
  • And if you read John 15 and
  • 00:10:35.290 --> 00:10:37.020
  • thought, Lord, I'm missing
  • 00:10:37.020 --> 00:10:38.200
  • something here.
  • 00:10:38.200 --> 00:10:40.190
  • Why is my joy not full because I
  • 00:10:40.190 --> 00:10:41.270
  • still find myself living under
  • 00:10:41.270 --> 00:10:43.150
  • condemnation and guilt and I
  • 00:10:43.150 --> 00:10:45.060
  • don't measure up and I must be
  • 00:10:45.060 --> 00:10:46.250
  • doing something wrong.
  • 00:10:46.250 --> 00:10:48.080
  • And a little bit of if/then, a
  • 00:10:48.080 --> 00:10:50.180
  • little bit of because/then and
  • 00:10:50.180 --> 00:10:52.140
  • it's just muddy.
  • 00:10:52.140 --> 00:10:54.120
  • But today God wants
  • 00:10:54.120 --> 00:10:54.270
  • to clear it up.
  • 00:10:54.270 --> 00:10:55.160
  • - female: Do you want to go
  • 00:10:57.170 --> 00:10:58.040
  • deeper in your relationship with
  • 00:10:58.040 --> 00:10:58.280
  • the Lord?
  • 00:10:58.280 --> 00:10:59.280

  • - Beth: Let's continue on
  • 00:12:07.250 --> 00:12:08.260
  • and this idea of new
  • 00:12:08.260 --> 00:12:09.190
  • and old covenant.
  • 00:12:09.190 --> 00:12:11.120
  • "But now, Jesus, our high priest
  • 00:12:11.120 --> 00:12:13.180
  • has been given a ministry
  • 00:12:13.180 --> 00:12:14.220
  • that is far superior
  • 00:12:14.220 --> 00:12:15.270
  • to the old priesthood.
  • 00:12:15.270 --> 00:12:17.160
  • For he is the one who mediates
  • 00:12:17.160 --> 00:12:19.100
  • for us a far better covenant
  • 00:12:19.100 --> 00:12:21.260
  • with God based on better
  • 00:12:21.260 --> 00:12:23.040
  • promises."
  • 00:12:23.040 --> 00:12:24.160
  • There's a lot in that verse.
  • 00:12:24.160 --> 00:12:26.150
  • If the first covenant had been
  • 00:12:26.150 --> 00:12:27.180
  • faultless there would have been
  • 00:12:27.180 --> 00:12:29.040
  • no need for the second covenant
  • 00:12:29.040 --> 00:12:30.130
  • to replace it.
  • 00:12:30.190 --> 00:12:33.190
  • But when God found fault with
  • 00:12:33.190 --> 00:12:34.250
  • the people he said, "The day is
  • 00:12:34.250 --> 00:12:35.270
  • coming, says the Lord, when I
  • 00:12:35.270 --> 00:12:37.010
  • will make a new covenant with
  • 00:12:37.010 --> 00:12:38.210
  • the people."
  • 00:12:38.210 --> 00:12:39.150
  • Okay, let's just hit pause there
  • 00:12:39.150 --> 00:12:40.120
  • for a minute.
  • 00:12:40.120 --> 00:12:41.190
  • Jesus is the mediator of a far
  • 00:12:41.190 --> 00:12:44.100
  • better covenant based on better
  • 00:12:44.100 --> 00:12:47.080
  • promises.
  • 00:12:47.080 --> 00:12:49.050
  • So the old covenant, it was
  • 00:12:49.050 --> 00:12:50.200
  • glorious, there was a lot of
  • 00:12:50.200 --> 00:12:51.240
  • promises in the Old Testament.
  • 00:12:51.240 --> 00:12:53.230
  • If you read the Old Testament,
  • 00:12:53.230 --> 00:12:54.230
  • there are a lot of promises.
  • 00:12:54.230 --> 00:12:56.280
  • The promises and the blessings
  • 00:12:56.280 --> 00:12:57.260
  • of Abraham to have long life,
  • 00:12:57.260 --> 00:12:59.200
  • and to have your family blessed
  • 00:12:59.200 --> 00:13:01.070
  • and everything you do blessed
  • 00:13:01.070 --> 00:13:02.190
  • and success in life.
  • 00:13:02.190 --> 00:13:04.120
  • They were the blessings and the
  • 00:13:04.120 --> 00:13:05.140
  • promises in Deuteronomy 28.
  • 00:13:05.140 --> 00:13:08.140
  • Blessed are you in the country
  • 00:13:08.140 --> 00:13:10.120
  • and in the city.
  • 00:13:10.120 --> 00:13:11.180
  • Blessed is your family.
  • 00:13:11.180 --> 00:13:13.030
  • Blessed is the fruit of your
  • 00:13:13.030 --> 00:13:13.270
  • womb.
  • 00:13:13.270 --> 00:13:14.220
  • Blessed is everything you put
  • 00:13:14.220 --> 00:13:15.160
  • your hands to.
  • 00:13:15.160 --> 00:13:16.270
  • Blessed is your body.
  • 00:13:16.270 --> 00:13:18.040
  • Blessed is everything you shop
  • 00:13:18.040 --> 00:13:19.040
  • for.
  • 00:13:19.040 --> 00:13:20.130
  • I mean, the blessings in
  • 00:13:20.130 --> 00:13:21.200
  • Deuteronomy 28 are amazing.
  • 00:13:21.200 --> 00:13:23.220
  • The promises.
  • 00:13:23.220 --> 00:13:25.160
  • Those were good promises but
  • 00:13:25.160 --> 00:13:27.100
  • then he's telling us, Jesus came
  • 00:13:27.100 --> 00:13:28.260
  • to institute something even
  • 00:13:28.260 --> 00:13:30.280
  • better.
  • 00:13:30.280 --> 00:13:33.190
  • A better covenant
  • 00:13:33.190 --> 00:13:35.080
  • with better promises.
  • 00:13:35.170 --> 00:13:38.170
  • Under the old covenant,
  • 00:13:38.170 --> 00:13:40.110
  • they had to, every year, to deal
  • 00:13:40.110 --> 00:13:43.090
  • with the sin of the Israelites,
  • 00:13:43.170 --> 00:13:46.170
  • of the Jews, to deal with sin,
  • 00:13:46.170 --> 00:13:48.120
  • every year they had to offer
  • 00:13:48.120 --> 00:13:49.160
  • sacrifice.
  • 00:13:49.160 --> 00:13:50.250
  • And they would offer it numerous
  • 00:13:50.250 --> 00:13:51.230
  • times throughout the year
  • 00:13:51.230 --> 00:13:52.230
  • depending on the particular
  • 00:13:52.230 --> 00:13:53.210
  • sacrifice or feast.
  • 00:13:53.210 --> 00:13:55.090
  • But every year, annually, there
  • 00:13:55.090 --> 00:13:57.010
  • was a big sacrifice where the
  • 00:13:57.010 --> 00:13:58.220
  • folks would bring a spotless
  • 00:13:58.220 --> 00:14:01.220
  • lamb.
  • 00:14:01.220 --> 00:14:02.190
  • Families would gather up their
  • 00:14:02.190 --> 00:14:04.170
  • funds and they would find
  • 00:14:04.170 --> 00:14:07.090
  • and come up with,
  • 00:14:07.090 --> 00:14:07.280
  • or raise a spotless lamb,
  • 00:14:08.010 --> 00:14:11.010
  • without spot or blemish,
  • 00:14:11.010 --> 00:14:12.110
  • perfect lamb.
  • 00:14:12.110 --> 00:14:13.140
  • And they would bring that lamb
  • 00:14:13.140 --> 00:14:14.210
  • to the temple and make the trek
  • 00:14:14.210 --> 00:14:15.240
  • to Jerusalem, bring that lamb to
  • 00:14:15.240 --> 00:14:17.240
  • the temple and there the high
  • 00:14:17.240 --> 00:14:20.150
  • priest would inspect this lamb,
  • 00:14:21.030 --> 00:14:24.030
  • this sacrifice because what
  • 00:14:24.030 --> 00:14:25.020
  • would happen is, in essence, I
  • 00:14:25.020 --> 00:14:26.160
  • mean, there were a lot of
  • 00:14:26.160 --> 00:14:27.140
  • different sacrifices, but in
  • 00:14:27.140 --> 00:14:29.150
  • essence, the family bringing the
  • 00:14:29.150 --> 00:14:32.050
  • lamb would, in essence, lay
  • 00:14:32.050 --> 00:14:34.050
  • hands on the lamb and transfer
  • 00:14:34.050 --> 00:14:35.150
  • their sins to the lamb and or to
  • 00:14:35.150 --> 00:14:38.120
  • a goat.
  • 00:14:38.120 --> 00:14:39.140
  • Which is where we get the
  • 00:14:39.140 --> 00:14:40.000
  • phrase, "scapegoat."
  • 00:14:40.000 --> 00:14:41.280
  • They would transfer the sins to
  • 00:14:41.280 --> 00:14:44.180
  • this innocent animal.
  • 00:14:44.180 --> 00:14:46.240
  • And then somebody had to pay for
  • 00:14:46.240 --> 00:14:48.090
  • the sins.
  • 00:14:48.090 --> 00:14:49.030
  • Somebody's gotta to pay for the
  • 00:14:49.030 --> 00:14:49.220
  • sin, even still, somebody has to
  • 00:14:49.220 --> 00:14:50.260
  • pay for the sin.
  • 00:14:50.260 --> 00:14:52.140
  • And so, the animal would give
  • 00:14:52.140 --> 00:14:54.100
  • it's life.
  • 00:14:54.100 --> 00:14:55.030
  • The lamb's blood would be shed,
  • 00:14:55.030 --> 00:14:57.020
  • they would be sacrificed.
  • 00:14:57.020 --> 00:14:59.020
  • The blood would be shed and the
  • 00:14:59.020 --> 00:15:01.140
  • life in the blood was an
  • 00:15:01.140 --> 00:15:03.040
  • atonement to cover sin for one
  • 00:15:03.040 --> 00:15:05.170
  • year.
  • 00:15:05.170 --> 00:15:06.270
  • And this was part
  • 00:15:06.270 --> 00:15:07.140
  • of the sacrificial laws
  • 00:15:07.140 --> 00:15:08.050
  • of the Old Testament.
  • 00:15:08.050 --> 00:15:09.180
  • They did this every year,
  • 00:15:09.180 --> 00:15:10.090
  • once a year they had to do this.
  • 00:15:10.090 --> 00:15:11.100
  • Now, they bring this lamb,
  • 00:15:11.100 --> 00:15:12.130
  • this is what I want you to get.
  • 00:15:12.130 --> 00:15:13.210
  • They bring the lamb to the high
  • 00:15:13.210 --> 00:15:14.180
  • priest.
  • 00:15:14.180 --> 00:15:16.270
  • The priest was inspecting the
  • 00:15:17.040 --> 00:15:20.040
  • lamb.
  • 00:15:20.040 --> 00:15:21.160
  • Not the people.
  • 00:15:21.160 --> 00:15:23.120
  • These were simple people, they'd
  • 00:15:23.120 --> 00:15:24.130
  • made mistakes, they weren't
  • 00:15:24.130 --> 00:15:25.130
  • perfect, they'd not kept all the
  • 00:15:25.130 --> 00:15:26.150
  • Ten Commandments.
  • 00:15:26.150 --> 00:15:28.150
  • But the priest did not inspect
  • 00:15:28.150 --> 00:15:29.210
  • the people.
  • 00:15:29.210 --> 00:15:31.280
  • The priest inspected the lamb.
  • 00:15:32.260 --> 00:15:35.260
  • And as long as the lamb was
  • 00:15:35.260 --> 00:15:36.280
  • perfect and spotless, it's blood
  • 00:15:36.280 --> 00:15:39.190
  • could be shed and then they
  • 00:15:39.190 --> 00:15:41.110
  • would get the benefit of that
  • 00:15:41.110 --> 00:15:43.090
  • shed blood and their sins would
  • 00:15:43.090 --> 00:15:45.040
  • be covered for one year.
  • 00:15:45.040 --> 00:15:46.190
  • You following?
  • 00:15:46.190 --> 00:15:48.060
  • So, this is what they did under
  • 00:15:48.060 --> 00:15:49.070
  • the old Testament.
  • 00:15:49.070 --> 00:15:50.230
  • So the good news was the priest
  • 00:15:50.230 --> 00:15:52.010
  • looked at the lamb, not at the
  • 00:15:52.010 --> 00:15:52.260
  • people.
  • 00:15:52.260 --> 00:15:54.160
  • But in the new covenant it tells
  • 00:15:54.160 --> 00:15:55.280
  • us Jesus is the one who mediates
  • 00:15:56.040 --> 00:15:59.040
  • a far better covenant based on
  • 00:15:59.040 --> 00:16:00.060
  • better promises.
  • 00:16:00.060 --> 00:16:01.080
  • His ministry is far superior to
  • 00:16:01.080 --> 00:16:03.150
  • the old priesthood.
  • 00:16:03.150 --> 00:16:06.010
  • Not only was he the high priest,
  • 00:16:06.010 --> 00:16:08.020
  • he became the lamb.
  • 00:16:08.020 --> 00:16:10.100
  • The Bible says he is the Lamb of
  • 00:16:10.100 --> 00:16:11.220
  • God who was slain from the
  • 00:16:11.220 --> 00:16:13.080
  • foundation of the world.
  • 00:16:13.080 --> 00:16:16.050
  • So then we come to the Lord,
  • 00:16:16.050 --> 00:16:18.190
  • just giving you the analogy
  • 00:16:18.190 --> 00:16:19.140
  • here.
  • 00:16:19.140 --> 00:16:21.040
  • And Jesus is the high priest but
  • 00:16:21.040 --> 00:16:23.210
  • the high priest is not
  • 00:16:23.210 --> 00:16:24.250
  • inspecting us.
  • 00:16:24.250 --> 00:16:26.200
  • The high priest inspects the
  • 00:16:26.200 --> 00:16:28.010
  • lamb.
  • 00:16:28.010 --> 00:16:29.240
  • He became the Lamb.
  • 00:16:29.240 --> 00:16:32.010
  • He became the mediator.
  • 00:16:32.010 --> 00:16:33.230
  • He inspects the lamb and the
  • 00:16:33.230 --> 00:16:35.130
  • lamb's perfect and the lamb's
  • 00:16:35.130 --> 00:16:36.200
  • sinless and the lamb's spotless.
  • 00:16:36.200 --> 00:16:39.130
  • He, the high priest, the Bible
  • 00:16:39.130 --> 00:16:40.190
  • says, became a man.
  • 00:16:40.190 --> 00:16:42.280
  • Set aside all of his God
  • 00:16:42.280 --> 00:16:44.010
  • qualities, humbled himself and
  • 00:16:44.010 --> 00:16:45.290
  • became a man who lived a perfect
  • 00:16:45.290 --> 00:16:48.140
  • life, who had perfect blood,
  • 00:16:48.140 --> 00:16:51.120
  • who could shed his blood
  • 00:16:51.120 --> 00:16:53.130
  • for our benefit.
  • 00:16:53.130 --> 00:16:56.070
  • He looks not at us and goes,
  • 00:16:56.070 --> 00:16:58.030
  • your fault, that fault, that
  • 00:16:58.030 --> 00:16:59.040
  • mistake, condemnation, unworthy,
  • 00:16:59.040 --> 00:17:01.120
  • not perfect, don't measure up.
  • 00:17:01.120 --> 00:17:02.280
  • He doesn't even look at us.
  • 00:17:02.280 --> 00:17:03.290
  • He's looking at the Lamb.
  • 00:17:04.130 --> 00:17:07.130
  • And the Lamb's perfect.
  • 00:17:07.130 --> 00:17:09.140
  • And then we get all the
  • 00:17:09.140 --> 00:17:10.160
  • benefits--go ahead, do what
  • 00:17:10.160 --> 00:17:12.040
  • you're going to do.

  • [audience applauding]
  • 00:17:12.230 --> 00:17:14.250
  • - Beth: Praise the Lord,
  • 00:17:14.250 --> 00:17:15.230
  • God is good.
  • 00:17:15.230 --> 00:17:17.140
  • And then we get all the benefits
  • 00:17:17.140 --> 00:17:19.120
  • of what the Lamb, Jesus, the
  • 00:17:19.160 --> 00:17:22.160
  • mediator of the new covenant has
  • 00:17:22.160 --> 00:17:24.130
  • done for us.
  • 00:17:24.130 --> 00:17:27.020
  • See, and so what happens so many
  • 00:17:27.020 --> 00:17:28.110
  • times, we're living not from
  • 00:17:28.110 --> 00:17:30.030
  • that realization.
  • 00:17:30.030 --> 00:17:32.010
  • We are often living from the
  • 00:17:32.010 --> 00:17:33.170
  • realization, Lord, I don't
  • 00:17:33.170 --> 00:17:34.230
  • measure up.
  • 00:17:34.230 --> 00:17:35.140
  • You're looking at me.
  • 00:17:35.140 --> 00:17:37.010
  • You're look at what I'm doing,
  • 00:17:37.010 --> 00:17:37.280
  • not doing, where I've missed it,
  • 00:17:37.280 --> 00:17:39.040
  • where I've messed up, where I
  • 00:17:39.040 --> 00:17:40.050
  • wasn't consistent, where--he's
  • 00:17:40.050 --> 00:17:41.270
  • not looking at that.
  • 00:17:41.270 --> 00:17:44.040
  • God made a covenant, let me just
  • 00:17:44.040 --> 00:17:45.240
  • do a quick little rabbit trail
  • 00:17:45.240 --> 00:17:47.050
  • here, in the Old Testament when
  • 00:17:47.050 --> 00:17:49.060
  • God made his agreement, his
  • 00:17:49.060 --> 00:17:50.260
  • covenant, the first covenant he
  • 00:17:50.260 --> 00:17:53.020
  • established was with Abraham.
  • 00:17:53.100 --> 00:17:56.100
  • And if you were Abraham's kids
  • 00:17:56.100 --> 00:17:57.180
  • or any of his descendants you
  • 00:17:57.180 --> 00:17:58.260
  • got the benefit of that
  • 00:17:58.260 --> 00:18:00.070
  • covenant, why?
  • 00:18:00.070 --> 00:18:00.280
  • Because he made a covenant with
  • 00:18:00.280 --> 00:18:01.240
  • Abraham.
  • 00:18:01.240 --> 00:18:03.160
  • You know, the Bible tells us
  • 00:18:03.160 --> 00:18:04.030
  • we're Abraham's seed.
  • 00:18:04.030 --> 00:18:06.040
  • If there was a covenant with
  • 00:18:06.040 --> 00:18:06.230
  • Abraham and all the people
  • 00:18:06.230 --> 00:18:07.170
  • connected with Abraham got in
  • 00:18:07.170 --> 00:18:08.200
  • on it.
  • 00:18:08.200 --> 00:18:10.110
  • As long as they did the if/then.
  • 00:18:10.110 --> 00:18:12.270
  • If they didn't do the if/then
  • 00:18:12.270 --> 00:18:13.150
  • then there'd be degrees
  • 00:18:13.150 --> 00:18:15.090
  • on their blessings.
  • 00:18:15.090 --> 00:18:17.060
  • Then there was Noah's covenant.
  • 00:18:17.060 --> 00:18:18.200
  • Then the covenant with David,
  • 00:18:18.200 --> 00:18:20.010
  • all these agreements.
  • 00:18:20.010 --> 00:18:20.230
  • There was rules and regulations
  • 00:18:20.230 --> 00:18:22.030
  • and if/thens applied to all of
  • 00:18:22.030 --> 00:18:23.150
  • those.
  • 00:18:23.150 --> 00:18:25.050
  • But if you were part of Noah's,
  • 00:18:25.050 --> 00:18:27.070
  • you know, umbrella you got--
  • 00:18:27.070 --> 00:18:28.210
  • no pun intended--
  • 00:18:29.030 --> 00:18:32.030
  • you get in on that.
  • 00:18:32.030 --> 00:18:33.260
  • You guys will get that
  • 00:18:33.260 --> 00:18:34.120
  • when you go home.
  • 00:18:34.120 --> 00:18:36.150
  • Then we get over to the
  • 00:18:36.150 --> 00:18:37.070
  • new covenant, listen, listen,
  • 00:18:37.070 --> 00:18:38.150
  • listen!
  • 00:18:38.150 --> 00:18:39.210
  • God made a covenant with Jesus!
  • 00:18:42.210 --> 00:18:45.210
  • God the Father made a covenant
  • 00:18:45.210 --> 00:18:46.230
  • with Jesus.
  • 00:18:46.230 --> 00:18:48.110
  • And if we are in Jesus, if we
  • 00:18:48.110 --> 00:18:51.050
  • are with Jesus.
  • 00:18:51.050 --> 00:18:52.160
  • If we are believers in Jesus, we
  • 00:18:52.160 --> 00:18:54.240
  • get in on all the benefits.
  • 00:18:56.190 --> 00:18:59.190
  • I'm with him.
  • 00:18:59.190 --> 00:19:00.210
  • That's what you say, "I'm with
  • 00:19:00.210 --> 00:19:01.090
  • him.
  • 00:19:01.090 --> 00:19:02.210
  • I'm with Jesus."
  • 00:19:02.210 --> 00:19:03.120
  • I will boast, in Christ alone,
  • 00:19:03.120 --> 00:19:06.070
  • no problem there.
  • 00:19:06.070 --> 00:19:07.090
  • His righteousness, not my own.
  • 00:19:07.090 --> 00:19:09.140
  • I am with him.
  • 00:19:09.140 --> 00:19:11.260
  • I'm with the Lamb.
  • 00:19:11.260 --> 00:19:14.170
  • The agreement was with the
  • 00:19:14.170 --> 00:19:16.010
  • Father and Jesus and he
  • 00:19:16.010 --> 00:19:17.070
  • completely fulfilled everything.
  • 00:19:17.070 --> 00:19:19.250
  • Not from the if/then.
  • 00:19:19.250 --> 00:19:22.120
  • From the because/then.
  • 00:19:22.270 --> 00:19:25.270
  • Now, if your wheels are
  • 00:19:25.270 --> 00:19:26.260
  • spinning, I'm going to make this
  • 00:19:26.260 --> 00:19:27.250
  • thing make more sense.
  • 00:19:27.250 --> 00:19:28.190
  • Okay, so,
  • 00:19:28.190 --> 00:19:29.200
  • let's take Deuteronomy 28,
  • 00:19:29.200 --> 00:19:31.080
  • Old Testament promises, part
  • 00:19:31.080 --> 00:19:34.080
  • of the Old Testament covenant.
  • 00:19:34.080 --> 00:19:35.170
  • If you keep all my commandments,
  • 00:19:35.170 --> 00:19:38.030
  • if you keep my statutes, if you
  • 00:19:38.030 --> 00:19:39.280
  • do all these things, then the
  • 00:19:39.280 --> 00:19:42.270
  • blessings of God will overtake
  • 00:19:42.270 --> 00:19:44.120
  • you.
  • 00:19:44.120 --> 00:19:45.100
  • Blessed shall you be in the
  • 00:19:45.100 --> 00:19:46.060
  • city, country, all of that.
  • 00:19:46.060 --> 00:19:47.190
  • If/then, if/then, if/then.
  • 00:19:47.190 --> 00:19:49.150
  • But the truth was they couldn't
  • 00:19:49.150 --> 00:19:50.110
  • do it.
  • 00:19:50.110 --> 00:19:51.060
  • You and I can't do it.
  • 00:19:51.060 --> 00:19:52.020
  • We can't keep all those, all of
  • 00:19:52.020 --> 00:19:53.230
  • those commandments.
  • 00:19:53.230 --> 00:19:54.230
  • So then we're not qualified.
  • 00:19:54.230 --> 00:19:55.220
  • We disqualify ourselves
  • 00:19:55.220 --> 00:19:57.050
  • from all the blessings.
  • 00:19:57.050 --> 00:19:59.160
  • That's the if/then,
  • 00:19:59.160 --> 00:20:00.270
  • old covenant.
  • 00:20:00.270 --> 00:20:01.260
  • But if we now jump into the new
  • 00:20:01.260 --> 00:20:03.010
  • covenant because the old one's
  • 00:20:03.010 --> 00:20:04.160
  • obsolete which opened up the new
  • 00:20:04.160 --> 00:20:06.040
  • one that Jesus the Lamb
  • 00:20:06.040 --> 00:20:08.020
  • has mediated.
  • 00:20:08.020 --> 00:20:09.110
  • Then we can read Deuteronomy 28
  • 00:20:09.110 --> 00:20:11.040
  • and go, "If you keep
  • 00:20:11.040 --> 00:20:12.270
  • all the commandments,
  • 00:20:12.270 --> 00:20:13.200
  • Jesus thank you, you did.
  • 00:20:14.090 --> 00:20:17.090
  • If you keep all my statutes,
  • 00:20:17.090 --> 00:20:19.050
  • Jesus thank you, you did.
  • 00:20:19.170 --> 00:20:22.170
  • If you walk in all of my ways,
  • 00:20:22.170 --> 00:20:24.210
  • Jesus thanks you, you did."
  • 00:20:25.060 --> 00:20:28.060
  • Then all these blessings will
  • 00:20:28.060 --> 00:20:29.280
  • come on you.
  • 00:20:29.280 --> 00:20:31.070
  • Thank you, Jesus is the
  • 00:20:31.070 --> 00:20:32.060
  • because/then.
  • 00:20:32.060 --> 00:20:33.130
  • Because you did, then I get the
  • 00:20:33.160 --> 00:20:36.160
  • blessings.
  • 00:20:36.160 --> 00:20:38.150
  • We live in the because/then.
  • 00:20:38.150 --> 00:20:40.180
  • Anytime you read a Scripture,
  • 00:20:40.180 --> 00:20:41.210
  • like, "Oh, I don't measure up,
  • 00:20:41.210 --> 00:20:42.230
  • I don't measure up."
  • 00:20:42.230 --> 00:20:43.080
  • Just stop for a minute and go,
  • 00:20:43.080 --> 00:20:44.050
  • "Wait a minute, wait a minute.
  • 00:20:44.050 --> 00:20:45.220
  • Did Jesus measure up?"
  • 00:20:45.220 --> 00:20:47.280
  • You don't measure up.
  • 00:20:47.280 --> 00:20:48.180
  • But did Jesus measure up?
  • 00:20:48.180 --> 00:20:50.130
  • Because we live in the
  • 00:20:50.130 --> 00:20:51.090
  • because/then because Jesus
  • 00:20:51.090 --> 00:20:53.000
  • measured up.
  • 00:20:53.000 --> 00:20:54.060
  • Because he was perfect.
  • 00:20:54.060 --> 00:20:55.170
  • Because he fulfilled everything.
  • 00:20:55.170 --> 00:20:57.080
  • Because he was the spotless,
  • 00:20:57.080 --> 00:20:59.020
  • sinless lamb.
  • 00:20:59.020 --> 00:21:01.100
  • God the Father looks at him and
  • 00:21:01.100 --> 00:21:03.240
  • because he was then I get the
  • 00:21:04.030 --> 00:21:07.030
  • blessings.
  • 00:21:07.030 --> 00:21:08.260
  • You said, that is just too good
  • 00:21:08.260 --> 00:21:09.210
  • to be true, give me a checklist.
  • 00:21:10.070 --> 00:21:13.070
  • Give me something I'm supposed

  • 00:22:28.050 --> 00:22:28.290
  • what is it he wants us to see.
  • 00:22:28.290 --> 00:22:30.150
  • He said in Hebrews and he said,
  • 00:22:30.150 --> 00:22:32.130
  • "I'm going to write these
  • 00:22:32.130 --> 00:22:33.100
  • new laws in their heart."
  • 00:22:33.100 --> 00:22:34.040
  • What laws?
  • 00:22:34.040 --> 00:22:35.030
  • Not the Ten Commandments,
  • 00:22:35.030 --> 00:22:36.040
  • it's the law of love.
  • 00:22:36.040 --> 00:22:38.230
  • The laws of love.
  • 00:22:38.250 --> 00:22:41.250
  • Let's look at this in 1 John 4,
  • 00:22:41.250 --> 00:22:44.120
  • 1 John 4, verse 9,
  • 00:22:44.120 --> 00:22:46.090
  • "In this, the love of God
  • 00:22:46.090 --> 00:22:48.070
  • has been manifested toward us."
  • 00:22:48.070 --> 00:22:50.160
  • God's love always manifested
  • 00:22:50.160 --> 00:22:52.140
  • towards us.
  • 00:22:52.140 --> 00:22:53.200
  • Manifested, not hidden,
  • 00:22:53.200 --> 00:22:55.140
  • toward you.
  • 00:22:55.140 --> 00:22:56.250
  • God's love is always
  • 00:22:56.250 --> 00:22:57.200
  • going towards you.
  • 00:22:57.200 --> 00:22:58.110
  • He's not running from you.
  • 00:22:58.110 --> 00:22:59.200
  • He's not withholding from you.
  • 00:22:59.200 --> 00:23:00.290
  • He's always trying to get
  • 00:23:00.290 --> 00:23:02.040
  • his love towards you.
  • 00:23:02.040 --> 00:23:03.210
  • He's always moving towards you.
  • 00:23:03.280 --> 00:23:06.280
  • He's for you.
  • 00:23:06.280 --> 00:23:07.270
  • He's on your side,
  • 00:23:07.270 --> 00:23:09.000
  • he's moving toward you.
  • 00:23:09.000 --> 00:23:10.020
  • The love of God is manifested
  • 00:23:10.020 --> 00:23:11.290
  • towards you.
  • 00:23:11.290 --> 00:23:14.180
  • That God has sent his only
  • 00:23:14.180 --> 00:23:16.110
  • begotten Son into the world
  • 00:23:16.110 --> 00:23:17.200
  • that we might live through him,
  • 00:23:17.200 --> 00:23:20.140
  • "in this is love, not that
  • 00:23:20.140 --> 00:23:22.280
  • we loved God, but that He loved
  • 00:23:23.000 --> 00:23:26.000
  • us and sent His Son to be the
  • 00:23:26.000 --> 00:23:28.290
  • propitiation for our sins."
  • 00:23:28.290 --> 00:23:30.250
  • It's not that we loved God.
  • 00:23:32.090 --> 00:23:35.090
  • Although it's great
  • 00:23:35.090 --> 00:23:36.070
  • that we love God.
  • 00:23:36.070 --> 00:23:38.030
  • And of course we love God.
  • 00:23:38.030 --> 00:23:38.290
  • But it's not!
  • 00:23:38.290 --> 00:23:40.090
  • That we love God.
  • 00:23:40.090 --> 00:23:41.180
  • It's not all the stuff we do.
  • 00:23:41.180 --> 00:23:43.210
  • It's not all the commands
  • 00:23:43.210 --> 00:23:44.220
  • we try to keep.
  • 00:23:44.220 --> 00:23:45.210
  • It's not the songs we sing.
  • 00:23:45.210 --> 00:23:47.210
  • It's not, It's not,
  • 00:23:47.210 --> 00:23:50.010
  • it's not that we love God!
  • 00:23:50.120 --> 00:23:53.120
  • It's that he, he, he loved us!
  • 00:23:55.290 --> 00:23:58.290
  • It's not do, do, do, do,
  • 00:23:58.290 --> 00:24:00.210
  • it's done.
  • 00:24:00.210 --> 00:24:02.260
  • He loved us.
  • 00:24:02.260 --> 00:24:05.220
  • You turned the paradigm.
  • 00:24:05.220 --> 00:24:07.060
  • You turned the pair of glasses
  • 00:24:07.060 --> 00:24:08.150
  • around, it's, like, "God,
  • 00:24:08.150 --> 00:24:09.190
  • I've been trying to love you.
  • 00:24:09.190 --> 00:24:11.090
  • I've been trying to do
  • 00:24:11.090 --> 00:24:12.020
  • all this stuff.
  • 00:24:12.020 --> 00:24:13.010
  • Or not doing it because
  • 00:24:13.010 --> 00:24:14.020
  • I knew I couldn't."
  • 00:24:14.020 --> 00:24:15.140
  • Just thinking,
  • 00:24:15.140 --> 00:24:15.290
  • "well that's how it works."
  • 00:24:15.290 --> 00:24:17.120
  • Instead of being in receive mode
  • 00:24:17.120 --> 00:24:19.220
  • and believe mode, like,
  • 00:24:19.220 --> 00:24:21.010
  • wow God you love me.
  • 00:24:21.040 --> 00:24:24.040
  • There's rest.
  • 00:24:24.040 --> 00:24:25.040
  • There's peace.
  • 00:24:25.040 --> 00:24:26.120
  • Maybe this Christian life
  • 00:24:26.120 --> 00:24:27.050
  • is doable.
  • 00:24:27.050 --> 00:24:29.190
  • Maybe it's possible,
  • 00:24:29.190 --> 00:24:30.130
  • this Christian life is doable.
  • 00:24:30.130 --> 00:24:32.130
  • If it's about the fact that
  • 00:24:32.130 --> 00:24:33.070
  • you love me and then I respond
  • 00:24:33.070 --> 00:24:35.080
  • to you.
  • 00:24:35.080 --> 00:24:37.190
  • Verse 16, "And we have known
  • 00:24:37.240 --> 00:24:40.240
  • and believed the love God
  • 00:24:40.240 --> 00:24:43.150
  • has for us, God is love and he
  • 00:24:43.150 --> 00:24:45.030
  • abides in love and abides in God
  • 00:24:45.030 --> 00:24:46.120
  • and God in Him.
  • 00:24:46.120 --> 00:24:47.280
  • Love has been perfected among us
  • 00:24:47.280 --> 00:24:50.040
  • in this, that we may have
  • 00:24:50.040 --> 00:24:51.090
  • boldness in the day of judgment
  • 00:24:51.090 --> 00:24:53.260
  • because as He is,
  • 00:24:53.260 --> 00:24:56.230
  • so are we in this world."
  • 00:24:56.230 --> 00:24:59.160
  • Well, it says here we know
  • 00:24:59.160 --> 00:25:00.160
  • and believe.
  • 00:25:00.160 --> 00:25:02.270
  • I believe that a lot of us here
  • 00:25:02.280 --> 00:25:05.280
  • are making
  • 00:25:05.280 --> 00:25:06.150
  • a little paradigm tweak.
  • 00:25:06.150 --> 00:25:08.160
  • You know,
  • 00:25:08.160 --> 00:25:09.090
  • you know God loves you.
  • 00:25:09.090 --> 00:25:10.040
  • You've been hearing it forever.
  • 00:25:10.040 --> 00:25:10.230
  • You know it, you know it,
  • 00:25:10.230 --> 00:25:11.190
  • you know it.
  • 00:25:11.190 --> 00:25:12.100
  • You've been knowing it but today
  • 00:25:12.100 --> 00:25:13.110
  • if you haven't already flipped
  • 00:25:13.110 --> 00:25:14.240
  • the switch, today I believe it.
  • 00:25:15.200 --> 00:25:18.200
  • I know God loves me
  • 00:25:18.200 --> 00:25:20.020
  • and I believe it.
  • 00:25:20.020 --> 00:25:22.050
  • I may or may not feel it,
  • 00:25:22.050 --> 00:25:23.050
  • I may not even understand it,
  • 00:25:23.050 --> 00:25:24.250
  • I believe it.
  • 00:25:24.250 --> 00:25:26.140
  • I just choose to believe it.
  • 00:25:26.140 --> 00:25:27.140
  • I know and believe this love
  • 00:25:28.000 --> 00:25:31.000
  • he has for me.
  • 00:25:31.000 --> 00:25:31.240
  • It's not that I loved him
  • 00:25:31.240 --> 00:25:32.190
  • it's that he loved me.
  • 00:25:32.190 --> 00:25:33.130
  • Holy smokes, I've got
  • 00:25:33.130 --> 00:25:34.100
  • the whole thing backwards.
  • 00:25:34.100 --> 00:25:36.220
  • I know and believe he loves me
  • 00:25:36.220 --> 00:25:38.030
  • and then I get this promise,
  • 00:25:38.030 --> 00:25:40.100
  • what?
  • 00:25:40.100 --> 00:25:41.070
  • I get this promise that as he is
  • 00:25:42.040 --> 00:25:45.040
  • so are we in this world?
  • 00:25:45.040 --> 00:25:47.150
  • As he is what?
  • 00:25:47.150 --> 00:25:49.090
  • As he is the perfect Lamb.
  • 00:25:49.090 --> 00:25:51.080
  • So are we perfected
  • 00:25:51.080 --> 00:25:52.030
  • in this world.
  • 00:25:52.030 --> 00:25:53.090
  • As he is righteous,
  • 00:25:53.090 --> 00:25:54.200
  • so have we been made righteous
  • 00:25:54.200 --> 00:25:56.070
  • in this world.
  • 00:25:56.070 --> 00:25:57.060
  • As he is loved by his Father,
  • 00:25:57.060 --> 00:26:00.020
  • so are we loved by our Father.
  • 00:26:00.020 --> 00:26:02.290
  • As he is well-pleasing to
  • 00:26:02.290 --> 00:26:04.140
  • the father without having done
  • 00:26:04.140 --> 00:26:05.210
  • anything, Jesus heard the voice
  • 00:26:06.010 --> 00:26:09.010
  • from heaven saying, "This is
  • 00:26:09.010 --> 00:26:10.090
  • my beloved son everybody.
  • 00:26:10.090 --> 00:26:12.170
  • In him I well pleased."
  • 00:26:12.240 --> 00:26:15.240
  • If that was true for Jesus than
  • 00:26:15.240 --> 00:26:17.080
  • as he was pronounced with
  • 00:26:17.080 --> 00:26:19.140
  • that blessing that the heavenly
  • 00:26:19.140 --> 00:26:21.040
  • Father called him his beloved in
  • 00:26:21.040 --> 00:26:23.230
  • whom he was well pleased then
  • 00:26:23.230 --> 00:26:25.180
  • as Jesus was, so am I.
  • 00:26:25.180 --> 00:26:28.020
  • In this world, what?
  • 00:26:28.020 --> 00:26:29.020
  • His beloved son,
  • 00:26:29.020 --> 00:26:29.170
  • his beloved daughter.
  • 00:26:29.170 --> 00:26:30.240
  • In whom he is well pleased.
  • 00:26:30.240 --> 00:26:32.180
  • But I haven't done anything.
  • 00:26:32.180 --> 00:26:33.230
  • In fact, I've done bad things.
  • 00:26:33.230 --> 00:26:35.130
  • That's my whole point,
  • 00:26:35.130 --> 00:26:36.080
