  • - Bil Cornelius: "Pastor Bil,
  • 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:01.060
  • how do you overcome temptation?"
  • 00:00:01.060 --> 00:00:02.060
  • Don't go near it.
  • 00:00:02.060 --> 00:00:03.220
  • It's not 'cause I'm so strong,
  • 00:00:03.220 --> 00:00:04.290
  • it's 'cause I'm so weak.
  • 00:00:04.290 --> 00:00:06.110
  • I just stay away from it.
  • 00:00:06.110 --> 00:00:07.180
  • "Oh man, it's so hard not to
  • 00:00:07.180 --> 00:00:08.160
  • look at the wrong channels,"
  • 00:00:08.160 --> 00:00:09.170
  • then don't have the wrong
  • 00:00:09.170 --> 00:00:10.100
  • channels.
  • 00:00:10.100 --> 00:00:11.100
  • "Man, it's so hard to not be,
  • 00:00:11.100 --> 00:00:12.050
  • you know, messing with
  • 00:00:12.050 --> 00:00:13.060
  • the wrong person at the bar."
  • 00:00:13.060 --> 00:00:14.100
  • Don't go to a bar.
  • 00:00:14.100 --> 00:00:15.180
  • In other words, if you're
  • 00:00:15.180 --> 00:00:16.270
  • tempted by doughnuts, don't
  • 00:00:16.270 --> 00:00:17.230
  • work at the doughnut factory.
  • 00:00:17.230 --> 00:00:19.020
  • [music]
  • 00:00:25.160 --> 00:00:28.160
  • - Bil: You are the church
  • 00:00:28.160 --> 00:00:30.140
  • - Bil: Welcome, it is great
  • 00:00:36.070 --> 00:00:37.000
  • to have you here today.
  • 00:00:37.000 --> 00:00:38.040
  • Thanks for joining us.
  • 00:00:38.040 --> 00:00:39.130
  • So, we're in the middle of
  • 00:00:39.130 --> 00:00:40.000
  • the series called,
  • 00:00:40.000 --> 00:00:40.280
  • "Stop Talking and Start Doing,"
  • 00:00:40.280 --> 00:00:42.270
  • and we're gonna continue
  • 00:00:42.270 --> 00:00:43.160
  • that series today.
  • 00:00:43.160 --> 00:00:44.160
  • Before we do that, I wanna give
  • 00:00:44.160 --> 00:00:45.130
  • our mission statement
  • 00:00:45.130 --> 00:00:46.090
  • real quick.
  • 00:00:46.090 --> 00:00:46.270
  • Our goal is to take as many
  • 00:00:46.270 --> 00:00:47.270
  • people to heaven as we can
  • 00:00:47.270 --> 00:00:48.210
  • before we die, period.
  • 00:00:48.210 --> 00:00:50.260
  • That's what we're all about
  • 00:00:50.260 --> 00:00:51.220
  • here, is helping more and more
  • 00:00:51.220 --> 00:00:53.030
  • people find Christ, and so
  • 00:00:53.030 --> 00:00:54.180
  • that's what we do as a church.
  • 00:00:54.180 --> 00:00:57.030
  • You know, as we started talking
  • 00:00:57.030 --> 00:00:58.120
  • about Joseph last week,
  • 00:00:58.120 --> 00:00:59.240
  • we discovered that
  • 00:00:59.240 --> 00:01:00.200
  • we all have a dream.
  • 00:01:00.200 --> 00:01:02.050
  • God has put a dream in all of
  • 00:01:02.050 --> 00:01:03.080
  • our hearts to accomplish
  • 00:01:03.080 --> 00:01:05.030
  • something that we're supposed
  • 00:01:05.030 --> 00:01:06.050
  • to do while we're here
  • 00:01:06.050 --> 00:01:07.140
  • on this earth.
  • 00:01:07.140 --> 00:01:08.180
  • It's your purpose to fulfill.
  • 00:01:08.180 --> 00:01:10.250
  • Every one of us has that.
  • 00:01:10.250 --> 00:01:11.260
  • Joseph had a dream that God gave
  • 00:01:11.260 --> 00:01:13.080
  • him, and he believed that God
  • 00:01:13.080 --> 00:01:14.250
  • was gonna do great things, but
  • 00:01:14.250 --> 00:01:16.050
  • of course his brothers had
  • 00:01:16.050 --> 00:01:17.140
  • a whole nother idea
  • 00:01:17.140 --> 00:01:18.150
  • of what his dreams meant.
  • 00:01:18.150 --> 00:01:19.110
  • They did not like him.
  • 00:01:19.110 --> 00:01:20.090
  • They hated his guts.
  • 00:01:20.090 --> 00:01:21.190
  • They literally sold him into
  • 00:01:21.190 --> 00:01:22.160
  • slavery.
  • 00:01:22.160 --> 00:01:23.040
  • We talked about that last week,
  • 00:01:23.040 --> 00:01:23.280
  • about how often times you can
  • 00:01:23.280 --> 00:01:25.160
  • get started in your dreams
  • 00:01:25.160 --> 00:01:26.110
  • not because of inspiration but
  • 00:01:26.110 --> 00:01:27.290
  • because of desperation, because
  • 00:01:27.290 --> 00:01:29.050
  • something bad happens, because
  • 00:01:29.050 --> 00:01:30.170
  • of betrayal, or heartache,
  • 00:01:30.170 --> 00:01:32.000
  • or difficulty, or failure.
  • 00:01:32.000 --> 00:01:33.060
  • It makes you focus on what
  • 00:01:33.060 --> 00:01:34.210
  • matters the most in your life.
  • 00:01:34.210 --> 00:01:36.000
  • And so, this week we're gonna
  • 00:01:36.000 --> 00:01:37.100
  • continue talking about that,
  • 00:01:37.100 --> 00:01:38.160
  • and of course keep in mind that
  • 00:01:38.160 --> 00:01:40.190
  • Joseph ended up being betrayed
  • 00:01:40.190 --> 00:01:41.170
  • by his brothers and he was
  • 00:01:41.170 --> 00:01:42.180
  • sold into slavery, now he finds
  • 00:01:42.180 --> 00:01:44.270
  • himself in Egypt, in another
  • 00:01:44.270 --> 00:01:46.120
  • land, speaking another language,
  • 00:01:46.120 --> 00:01:48.140
  • and he goes from being free
  • 00:01:48.140 --> 00:01:50.200
  • to being a slave.
  • 00:01:50.200 --> 00:01:52.060
  • So, let's pick up in Scripture
  • 00:01:52.060 --> 00:01:52.260
  • now, because today I wanna talk
  • 00:01:52.260 --> 00:01:54.040
  • about how you can
  • 00:01:54.040 --> 00:01:55.000
  • reposition yourself.
  • 00:01:55.000 --> 00:01:55.290
  • In other words,
  • 00:01:55.290 --> 00:01:57.170
  • God's already repositioning you,
  • 00:01:57.170 --> 00:01:58.190
  • you might as well work with it.
  • 00:01:58.190 --> 00:01:59.220
  • And so, God repositioned him
  • 00:01:59.220 --> 00:02:01.060
  • from where he was to Egypt,
  • 00:02:01.060 --> 00:02:02.270
  • because you can't become
  • 00:02:02.270 --> 00:02:04.270
  • a great leader of Egypt
  • 00:02:04.270 --> 00:02:06.020
  • unless you're in Egypt, right?
  • 00:02:06.020 --> 00:02:07.280
  • So, he had to move there.
  • 00:02:07.280 --> 00:02:09.100
  • So, he ends up there by force,
  • 00:02:09.100 --> 00:02:11.080
  • not by choice, and so
  • 00:02:11.080 --> 00:02:12.230
  • let's pick up in Scripture.
  • 00:02:12.230 --> 00:02:13.210
  • It says in Genesis chapter 39,
  • 00:02:13.210 --> 00:02:15.250
  • verses 1 through 2,
  • 00:02:15.250 --> 00:02:17.120
  • it says, "Now, Joseph
  • 00:02:17.120 --> 00:02:18.050
  • had been taken down to Egypt.
  • 00:02:18.050 --> 00:02:19.180
  • Potiphar, an Egyptian, who was
  • 00:02:19.180 --> 00:02:21.000
  • one of Pharaoh's officials,
  • 00:02:21.000 --> 00:02:22.160
  • the captain of the guard,
  • 00:02:22.160 --> 00:02:23.140
  • bought him from the Ishmaelites
  • 00:02:23.140 --> 00:02:25.040
  • who had taken him there.
  • 00:02:25.040 --> 00:02:26.140
  • The Lord was with Joseph
  • 00:02:26.140 --> 00:02:27.210
  • so that he prospered,
  • 00:02:27.210 --> 00:02:28.240
  • and he lived in the house
  • 00:02:28.240 --> 00:02:29.220
  • of the Egyptian master."
  • 00:02:29.220 --> 00:02:31.280
  • So, let's dive right in.
  • 00:02:31.280 --> 00:02:32.210
  • The first thing you need to
  • 00:02:32.210 --> 00:02:33.110
  • know, number one, is to bloom
  • 00:02:33.110 --> 00:02:34.240
  • where you are planted.
  • 00:02:34.240 --> 00:02:36.140
  • Joseph was not where
  • 00:02:36.140 --> 00:02:37.180
  • he wanted to be, but he decided
  • 00:02:37.180 --> 00:02:39.060
  • to do good where he was.
  • 00:02:39.060 --> 00:02:41.090
  • That's important to understand,
  • 00:02:41.090 --> 00:02:42.130
  • that most of us have
  • 00:02:42.130 --> 00:02:43.190
  • destination disease.
  • 00:02:43.190 --> 00:02:44.230
  • We're always one zip code away
  • 00:02:44.230 --> 00:02:45.260
  • from being happy.
  • 00:02:45.260 --> 00:02:46.230
  • "Oh man, if I just lived there,
  • 00:02:46.230 --> 00:02:47.260
  • then I'd be happy."
  • 00:02:47.260 --> 00:02:48.190
  • "If I was just in that town,
  • 00:02:48.190 --> 00:02:50.200
  • if I just had that job,
  • 00:02:50.200 --> 00:02:51.160
  • working at that company.
  • 00:02:51.160 --> 00:02:52.200
  • If I was just married
  • 00:02:52.200 --> 00:02:53.160
  • to that person.
  • 00:02:53.160 --> 00:02:54.090
  • If I didn't have my kids,
  • 00:02:54.090 --> 00:02:55.080
  • if I had their kids,
  • 00:02:55.080 --> 00:02:56.060
  • then I'd be happy," right?
  • 00:02:56.060 --> 00:02:57.170
  • We're always one step away.
  • 00:02:57.170 --> 00:02:59.290
  • "If I just went to that church."
  • 00:02:59.290 --> 00:03:01.110
  • "If I just was there."
  • 00:03:01.110 --> 00:03:02.160
  • Whatever it is, we're always
  • 00:03:02.160 --> 00:03:03.180
  • one step away from being happy,
  • 00:03:03.180 --> 00:03:04.200
  • but the truth is,
  • 00:03:04.200 --> 00:03:05.200
  • if you look over and the grass
  • 00:03:05.200 --> 00:03:06.290
  • seems greener next door,
  • 00:03:06.290 --> 00:03:08.260
  • it's because someone's
  • 00:03:08.260 --> 00:03:09.240
  • watering it over there.
  • 00:03:09.240 --> 00:03:11.130
  • And so, if you water your own
  • 00:03:11.130 --> 00:03:12.290
  • grass, it will get green, too.
  • 00:03:12.290 --> 00:03:15.180
  • If you water your own marriage,
  • 00:03:15.180 --> 00:03:16.160
  • water your own children, water
  • 00:03:16.160 --> 00:03:17.170
  • your own career, water your own
  • 00:03:17.170 --> 00:03:19.130
  • church, water your own ministry,
  • 00:03:19.130 --> 00:03:22.000
  • water where you are,
  • 00:03:22.000 --> 00:03:23.070
  • then you will bloom.
  • 00:03:23.070 --> 00:03:25.080
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:03:25.080 --> 00:03:26.120
  • And so, let's talk about how
  • 00:03:26.120 --> 00:03:27.080
  • we can do that now,
  • 00:03:27.080 --> 00:03:27.290
  • 'cause Joseph had to work in
  • 00:03:27.290 --> 00:03:29.250
  • a hostile environment, okay.
  • 00:03:29.250 --> 00:03:32.020
  • To be the captain of the guard,
  • 00:03:32.020 --> 00:03:33.140
  • which is what Potiphar was, man,
  • 00:03:33.140 --> 00:03:35.000
  • you are the number one henchman
  • 00:03:35.000 --> 00:03:37.290
  • for the king.
  • 00:03:37.290 --> 00:03:38.210
  • You're the guy that took people
  • 00:03:38.210 --> 00:03:40.160
  • out for the king, know what I
  • 00:03:40.160 --> 00:03:41.220
  • mean.
  • 00:03:41.220 --> 00:03:42.170
  • That's what you did, alright.
  • 00:03:42.170 --> 00:03:43.170
  • I mean, you're the bully,
  • 00:03:43.170 --> 00:03:45.060
  • the strong arm for basically
  • 00:03:45.060 --> 00:03:47.030
  • the mob, okay,
  • 00:03:47.030 --> 00:03:48.080
  • that's how that worked.
  • 00:03:48.080 --> 00:03:48.280
  • And so, the king says, "I don't
  • 00:03:48.280 --> 00:03:50.020
  • like that guy," then Potiphar
  • 00:03:50.020 --> 00:03:51.010
  • shows up and says,
  • 00:03:51.010 --> 00:03:51.290
  • "Forget about it," and he'd go,
  • 00:03:51.290 --> 00:03:53.270
  • and he'd take care of it.
  • 00:03:53.270 --> 00:03:54.240
  • That's what he did.
  • 00:03:54.240 --> 00:03:56.000
  • I mean, this guy
  • 00:03:56.000 --> 00:03:56.210
  • was not a nice guy.
  • 00:03:56.210 --> 00:03:57.290
  • So, Joseph is now
  • 00:03:57.290 --> 00:03:59.070
  • a slave to a very scary guy.
  • 00:03:59.080 --> 00:04:02.100
  • This is not a good situation
  • 00:04:02.100 --> 00:04:03.120
  • to be in, but he found himself
  • 00:04:03.120 --> 00:04:05.140
  • prospering in the middle of
  • 00:04:05.140 --> 00:04:07.040
  • a very difficult situation.
  • 00:04:07.040 --> 00:04:09.020
  • Could that be said of you
  • 00:04:09.020 --> 00:04:09.250
  • and me?
  • 00:04:09.250 --> 00:04:10.160
  • That we learn to prosper
  • 00:04:10.160 --> 00:04:11.100
  • even when our boss is not nice?
  • 00:04:11.100 --> 00:04:13.090
  • Can we prosper even when
  • 00:04:13.090 --> 00:04:14.140
  • the situation where we work
  • 00:04:14.140 --> 00:04:15.250
  • is not really that good?
  • 00:04:15.250 --> 00:04:17.220
  • When you feel like you kind of
  • 00:04:17.220 --> 00:04:19.030
  • have people against you, you
  • 00:04:19.030 --> 00:04:20.150
  • feel like there's some kind of
  • 00:04:20.150 --> 00:04:21.140
  • conspiracy going on against you.
  • 00:04:21.140 --> 00:04:22.100
  • There may actually be that,
  • 00:04:22.100 --> 00:04:23.290
  • but you can still prosper.
  • 00:04:23.290 --> 00:04:25.140
  • You can still succeed
  • 00:04:25.140 --> 00:04:26.110
  • in the middle of that.
  • 00:04:26.110 --> 00:04:27.060
  • Joseph shows us how.
  • 00:04:27.060 --> 00:04:28.000
  • So, how do you do that?
  • 00:04:28.000 --> 00:04:29.020
  • Let me give you the A, B, C,
  • 00:04:29.020 --> 00:04:29.200
  • and D of how to do that.
  • 00:04:29.200 --> 00:04:31.180
  • Check it out.
  • 00:04:31.180 --> 00:04:32.110
  • It says in verse 3, "When his
  • 00:04:32.110 --> 00:04:33.100
  • master saw that the Lord was
  • 00:04:33.100 --> 00:04:34.100
  • with him, and the Lord gave him
  • 00:04:34.100 --> 00:04:35.250
  • success in everything he did,
  • 00:04:35.250 --> 00:04:37.100
  • Joseph found favor in his eyes
  • 00:04:37.100 --> 00:04:38.170
  • and became his attendant."
  • 00:04:38.170 --> 00:04:40.120
  • So, Potiphar wanted him closer
  • 00:04:40.120 --> 00:04:41.180
  • to him 'cause he saw he was
  • 00:04:41.180 --> 00:04:42.170
  • successful in everything he did.
  • 00:04:42.170 --> 00:04:43.120
  • So, just imagine Potiphar says,
  • 00:04:43.120 --> 00:04:45.130
  • "Hey, what's your name?
  • 00:04:45.130 --> 00:04:46.060
  • You're the new kid, right?
  • 00:04:46.060 --> 00:04:47.030
  • What's your name?
  • 00:04:47.030 --> 00:04:47.270
  • Joseph, alright Joseph, hey,
  • 00:04:47.270 --> 00:04:48.260
  • the backyard's a mess,
  • 00:04:48.260 --> 00:04:49.160
  • go clean it up."
  • 00:04:49.160 --> 00:04:50.120
  • So he goes and cleans it up.
  • 00:04:50.120 --> 00:04:51.080
  • Potiphar walks by the back
  • 00:04:51.080 --> 00:04:52.100
  • window at some point and says,
  • 00:04:52.100 --> 00:04:53.070
  • "Wow, man, this kid's good.
  • 00:04:53.070 --> 00:04:55.060
  • Hey Joseph, come in here.
  • 00:04:55.060 --> 00:04:56.180
  • Can you do what you did
  • 00:04:56.180 --> 00:04:57.290
  • out there to the front yard?"
  • 00:04:57.290 --> 00:04:59.140
  • So he goes and does
  • 00:04:59.140 --> 00:04:59.290
  • the front yard.
  • 00:04:59.290 --> 00:05:00.200
  • "Hey, man, you really got
  • 00:05:00.200 --> 00:05:01.210
  • this place looking good.
  • 00:05:01.210 --> 00:05:02.100
  • Can you go out to my stables,
  • 00:05:02.100 --> 00:05:03.090
  • 'cause they're a big mess, too?
  • 00:05:03.090 --> 00:05:04.070
  • Can you go clean that up?
  • 00:05:04.070 --> 00:05:05.040
  • Hey, can you come and
  • 00:05:05.040 --> 00:05:06.040
  • take care of the back room?
  • 00:05:06.040 --> 00:05:07.060
  • Can you come see what's going on
  • 00:05:07.060 --> 00:05:08.090
  • with the kitchen?
  • 00:05:08.090 --> 00:05:09.010
  • Hey, can you come help rearrange
  • 00:05:09.010 --> 00:05:10.020
  • the--" and so, he eventually
  • 00:05:10.020 --> 00:05:11.120
  • just says, "Joseph, man,
  • 00:05:11.120 --> 00:05:12.000
  • you can do all of this.
  • 00:05:12.000 --> 00:05:13.040
  • I just wanna put you in charge.
  • 00:05:13.040 --> 00:05:14.090
  • I mean, you're knocking it out,"
  • 00:05:14.090 --> 00:05:15.170
  • so he just keeps giving him
  • 00:05:15.170 --> 00:05:16.150
  • more and more responsibility.
  • 00:05:16.150 --> 00:05:18.170
  • You know,
  • 00:05:18.170 --> 00:05:19.050
  • let me ask you something.
  • 00:05:19.050 --> 00:05:19.230
  • Do you grunt and groan when
  • 00:05:19.230 --> 00:05:21.050
  • you're given more responsibility
  • 00:05:21.050 --> 00:05:22.050
  • at work, or do you see it as
  • 00:05:22.050 --> 00:05:23.020
  • an opportunity?
  • 00:05:23.020 --> 00:05:24.130
  • 'Cause Joseph saw it as
  • 00:05:24.130 --> 00:05:25.270
  • an opportunity,
  • 00:05:25.270 --> 00:05:26.240
  • and he took the opportunity.
  • 00:05:26.240 --> 00:05:28.030
  • This teaches us something,
  • 00:05:28.030 --> 00:05:29.040
  • really.
  • 00:05:29.040 --> 00:05:29.210
  • It says here that the Lord
  • 00:05:29.210 --> 00:05:30.210
  • gave him success.
  • 00:05:30.210 --> 00:05:31.180
  • If you look up the word success,
  • 00:05:31.180 --> 00:05:32.240
  • that means to achieve
  • 00:05:32.240 --> 00:05:34.050
  • a worthy goal.
  • 00:05:34.050 --> 00:05:36.030
  • And so, the A here on how
  • 00:05:36.030 --> 00:05:37.260
  • to reposition yourself
  • 00:05:37.260 --> 00:05:39.270
  • and massively increase
  • 00:05:39.270 --> 00:05:41.160
  • your opportunity at work
  • 00:05:41.160 --> 00:05:42.210
  • is to set and achieve a goal
  • 00:05:42.210 --> 00:05:44.000
  • that pleases your boss.
  • 00:05:44.000 --> 00:05:46.010
  • Set and achieve a goal
  • 00:05:46.010 --> 00:05:47.130
  • that pleases your boss.
  • 00:05:47.130 --> 00:05:48.260
  • Not just your goal, not just
  • 00:05:48.260 --> 00:05:50.050
  • something random I wanna do,
  • 00:05:50.050 --> 00:05:51.140
  • 'cause you're not there to do
  • 00:05:51.140 --> 00:05:52.180
  • just what you wanna do,
  • 00:05:52.180 --> 00:05:53.130
  • you're there to do
  • 00:05:53.130 --> 00:05:54.030
  • what your boss wants you to do.
  • 00:05:54.030 --> 00:05:56.040
  • Even if you don't agree with
  • 00:05:56.040 --> 00:05:56.220
  • the boss, I highly recommended
  • 00:05:56.220 --> 00:05:57.280
  • you do what they want and not
  • 00:05:57.280 --> 00:05:59.020
  • what you want, or you'll find
  • 00:05:59.020 --> 00:06:00.100
  • yourself without a paycheck,
  • 00:06:00.100 --> 00:06:01.120
  • okay.
  • 00:06:01.120 --> 00:06:02.040
  • The best thing to do is to walk
  • 00:06:02.040 --> 00:06:03.220
  • into the boss's office tomorrow
  • 00:06:03.220 --> 00:06:04.150
  • morning and say, "Hey, you know,
  • 00:06:04.150 --> 00:06:06.020
  • I just--I was studying the Bible
  • 00:06:06.020 --> 00:06:07.190
  • actually, believe it or not,
  • 00:06:07.190 --> 00:06:09.060
  • and a guy named Joseph, he
  • 00:06:09.060 --> 00:06:10.150
  • did exactly what he was asked,
  • 00:06:10.150 --> 00:06:12.010
  • and so I just figured
  • 00:06:12.010 --> 00:06:12.260
  • I'd come to you to say,
  • 00:06:12.260 --> 00:06:13.160
  • 'What do you need me to do?'
  • 00:06:13.160 --> 00:06:14.260
  • What do I need to do to be
  • 00:06:14.260 --> 00:06:15.260
  • successful in your eyes, not
  • 00:06:15.260 --> 00:06:17.220
  • in my eyes, but in your eyes?"
  • 00:06:17.220 --> 00:06:19.040
  • If you do this for 6 weeks
  • 00:06:19.040 --> 00:06:19.270
  • straight, you will not have
  • 00:06:19.270 --> 00:06:21.280
  • a problem getting a promotion.
  • 00:06:21.280 --> 00:06:23.150
  • I'm telling you right now.
  • 00:06:23.150 --> 00:06:24.100
  • Check out what's next here.
  • 00:06:24.100 --> 00:06:25.230
  • Genesis 39, verse 4.
  • 00:06:25.230 --> 00:06:26.240
  • "Potiphar put him in charge
  • 00:06:26.240 --> 00:06:27.240
  • of his household,
  • 00:06:27.240 --> 00:06:28.280
  • and he entrusted to his care
  • 00:06:28.280 --> 00:06:30.130
  • everything he owned."
  • 00:06:30.130 --> 00:06:32.160
  • So the A is to set and achieve
  • 00:06:32.160 --> 00:06:34.170
  • a goal that pleases your boss,
  • 00:06:34.170 --> 00:06:35.260
  • B is to be trustworthy.
  • 00:06:35.260 --> 00:06:37.050
  • To be trustworthy means
  • 00:06:37.050 --> 00:06:38.180
  • that you keep your word.
  • 00:06:38.180 --> 00:06:40.060
  • That when they say, "Hey,
  • 00:06:40.060 --> 00:06:41.130
  • will you handle this," you say,
  • 00:06:41.130 --> 00:06:42.180
  • "Yes, sir.
  • 00:06:42.180 --> 00:06:43.190
  • Yes, ma'am," and they know
  • 00:06:43.190 --> 00:06:44.250
  • that it's done,
  • 00:06:44.250 --> 00:06:45.230
  • 'cause it's in your hands.
  • 00:06:45.230 --> 00:06:46.260
  • Could it be said that when
  • 00:06:46.260 --> 00:06:48.250
  • someone gives you something to
  • 00:06:48.250 --> 00:06:49.280
  • do, that they just automatically
  • 00:06:49.280 --> 00:06:51.170
  • know it's gonna get done?
  • 00:06:51.170 --> 00:06:53.190
  • Can you be counted on, right?
  • 00:06:53.190 --> 00:06:56.120
  • So, this is really a big deal.
  • 00:06:56.120 --> 00:06:57.270
  • It says in verse 5, "From
  • 00:06:57.270 --> 00:06:59.090
  • the time he put him in charge
  • 00:06:59.090 --> 00:07:00.080
  • of his household
  • 00:07:00.080 --> 00:07:01.010
  • and all that he owned,
  • 00:07:01.010 --> 00:07:02.010
  • the Lord blessed
  • 00:07:02.010 --> 00:07:02.260
  • the household of the Egyptian
  • 00:07:02.260 --> 00:07:03.230
  • because of Joseph."
  • 00:07:03.230 --> 00:07:04.240
  • So, God blessed Potiphar,
  • 00:07:04.240 --> 00:07:06.270
  • even though Potiphar was not
  • 00:07:06.270 --> 00:07:07.250
  • a God-fearing man,
  • 00:07:07.250 --> 00:07:08.160
  • just because Joseph was there.
  • 00:07:08.160 --> 00:07:10.190
  • Could it be said that
  • 00:07:10.190 --> 00:07:11.090
  • your business is blessed just
  • 00:07:11.090 --> 00:07:12.040
  • 'cause you're there?
  • 00:07:12.040 --> 00:07:13.060
  • Are you a blessing just 'cause
  • 00:07:13.060 --> 00:07:14.090
  • you're on the team?
  • 00:07:14.090 --> 00:07:15.190
  • Just 'cause you're on the team,
  • 00:07:15.190 --> 00:07:16.100
  • the whole team's better, right?
  • 00:07:16.100 --> 00:07:18.150
  • Could it be said of me
  • 00:07:18.150 --> 00:07:19.100
  • just because we're there,
  • 00:07:19.100 --> 00:07:20.150
  • we have that kind of an impact?
  • 00:07:20.150 --> 00:07:22.000
  • It goes on to say, "The blessing
  • 00:07:22.000 --> 00:07:22.280
  • of the Lord was on everything
  • 00:07:22.280 --> 00:07:24.010
  • Potiphar had, both in
  • 00:07:24.010 --> 00:07:25.110
  • the house and in the field."
  • 00:07:25.110 --> 00:07:27.110
  • And so, basically he ends up
  • 00:07:27.110 --> 00:07:28.240
  • being on the team, but
  • 00:07:28.240 --> 00:07:29.230
  • eventually he's over the team.
  • 00:07:29.230 --> 00:07:31.130
  • Now, this is very important.
  • 00:07:31.130 --> 00:07:32.210
  • C is this, learn to work with
  • 00:07:32.210 --> 00:07:34.010
  • people so you can learn to
  • 00:07:34.010 --> 00:07:35.170
  • work through people.
  • 00:07:35.170 --> 00:07:37.040
  • See, at first you're on the team
  • 00:07:37.040 --> 00:07:38.170
  • and if you learn to work well
  • 00:07:38.170 --> 00:07:39.180
  • with the team, then eventually
  • 00:07:39.180 --> 00:07:40.210
  • the team will recruit you,
  • 00:07:40.210 --> 00:07:41.250
  • or someone in management will
  • 00:07:41.250 --> 00:07:42.190
  • recruit you and put you
  • 00:07:42.190 --> 00:07:43.110
  • over the team.
  • 00:07:43.110 --> 00:07:44.120
  • But this is very,
  • 00:07:44.120 --> 00:07:44.270
  • very important.
  • 00:07:44.270 --> 00:07:45.190
  • The moment you're over the team,
  • 00:07:45.190 --> 00:07:47.200
  • you should not treat them like
  • 00:07:47.200 --> 00:07:48.270
  • you're over the team,
  • 00:07:48.270 --> 00:07:50.050
  • you should treat them
  • 00:07:50.050 --> 00:07:51.090
  • like you're on the team.
  • 00:07:51.090 --> 00:07:53.060
  • Did you know that 85% of all
  • 00:07:53.060 --> 00:07:54.170
  • job loss happens not because you
  • 00:07:54.170 --> 00:07:56.050
  • don't know how to do your job,
  • 00:07:56.050 --> 00:07:57.090
  • but because you can't get
  • 00:07:57.090 --> 00:07:58.040
  • along with other people?
  • 00:07:58.040 --> 00:07:59.100
  • Eighty-five percent
  • 00:07:59.100 --> 00:08:00.240
  • of job loss has nothing
  • 00:08:00.240 --> 00:08:01.280
  • to do with your task.
  • 00:08:01.280 --> 00:08:03.270
  • Isn't that crazy?
  • 00:08:03.270 --> 00:08:04.290
  • So, we've got to learn to get
  • 00:08:04.290 --> 00:08:06.120
  • along well with other people.
  • 00:08:06.120 --> 00:08:08.190
  • You may say, "But, I am
  • 00:08:08.190 --> 00:08:09.070
  • the boss, I don't have to listen
  • 00:08:09.070 --> 00:08:10.030
  • to them."
  • 00:08:10.030 --> 00:08:10.190
  • Yeah, you do.
  • 00:08:10.190 --> 00:08:11.110
  • Every boss has a boss, too.
  • 00:08:11.110 --> 00:08:14.040
  • It's really a big deal.
  • 00:08:14.040 --> 00:08:14.270
  • You may be the man in charge,
  • 00:08:14.270 --> 00:08:15.270
  • but if you don't do your job and
  • 00:08:15.270 --> 00:08:18.130
  • understand who the boss is, then
  • 00:08:18.130 --> 00:08:20.090
  • you're not gonna have customers.
  • 00:08:20.090 --> 00:08:22.010
  • The customer's the boss, right?
  • 00:08:22.010 --> 00:08:23.250
  • "Well, Pastor Bil,
  • 00:08:23.250 --> 00:08:24.250
  • you're the pastor here.
  • 00:08:24.250 --> 00:08:25.220
  • You're in charge."
  • 00:08:25.220 --> 00:08:26.120
  • No, I'm not, you are,
  • 00:08:26.120 --> 00:08:28.160
  • because you vote with your feet.
  • 00:08:28.160 --> 00:08:30.160
  • I understand how this works.
  • 00:08:30.160 --> 00:08:31.260
  • If I'm not delivering a message
  • 00:08:31.260 --> 00:08:33.010
  • that's gonna really help you,
  • 00:08:33.010 --> 00:08:34.090
  • and encourage you, build you up
  • 00:08:34.090 --> 00:08:35.180
  • in the Lord and bring
  • 00:08:35.180 --> 00:08:36.140
  • God's truth to you, you'll
  • 00:08:36.140 --> 00:08:37.080
  • find another place that will.
  • 00:08:37.080 --> 00:08:39.070
  • I understand that, so
  • 00:08:39.070 --> 00:08:40.220
  • hopefully I'm doing okay today.
  • 00:08:42.010 --> 00:08:45.010
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:08:45.010 --> 00:08:47.060
  • Can I just mention here, too,
  • 00:08:47.060 --> 00:08:48.100
  • that Joseph literally changed
  • 00:08:48.100 --> 00:08:50.180
  • the world and he was never
  • 00:08:50.180 --> 00:08:52.110
  • the boss?
  • 00:08:52.110 --> 00:08:53.240
  • Not once in his career was
  • 00:08:53.240 --> 00:08:55.040
  • he in charge.
  • 00:08:55.040 --> 00:08:56.190
  • He was always an employee
  • 00:08:56.190 --> 00:08:58.150
  • of someone else.
  • 00:08:58.150 --> 00:08:59.240
  • So, please don't think, "Well,
  • 00:08:59.240 --> 00:09:00.200
  • I gotta strike out on my own."
  • 00:09:00.200 --> 00:09:02.010
  • Maybe God wants you to do that,
  • 00:09:02.010 --> 00:09:03.080
  • but maybe not.
  • 00:09:03.080 --> 00:09:04.150
  • Maybe you're supposed to be
  • 00:09:04.150 --> 00:09:05.060
  • serving underneath someone else
  • 00:09:05.060 --> 00:09:06.170
  • and do the best you can, and
  • 00:09:06.170 --> 00:09:08.090
  • you will literally push them up.
  • 00:09:08.090 --> 00:09:09.250
  • The higher you go, the higher
  • 00:09:09.250 --> 00:09:11.220
  • your boss has to go 'cause
  • 00:09:11.220 --> 00:09:12.220
  • you're pushing him up by the way
  • 00:09:12.220 --> 00:09:14.230
  • you live your life, by the way
  • 00:09:14.230 --> 00:09:15.270
  • you run things, by the way
  • 00:09:15.270 --> 00:09:16.250
  • you handle things.
  • 00:09:16.250 --> 00:09:17.220
  • So, it's important to understand
  • 00:09:17.220 --> 00:09:18.120
  • that we have to learn to work
  • 00:09:18.120 --> 00:09:19.050
  • with people and also work
  • 00:09:19.050 --> 00:09:20.070
  • through people which is
  • 00:09:20.070 --> 00:09:21.030
  • delegation.
  • 00:09:21.030 --> 00:09:22.020
  • Then it says in verse 6,
  • 00:09:22.020 --> 00:09:22.250
  • "So Potiphar left everything
  • 00:09:22.250 --> 00:09:24.000
  • he had in Joseph's care.
  • 00:09:24.000 --> 00:09:25.050
  • With Joseph in charge,
  • 00:09:25.050 --> 00:09:26.120
  • he did not concern himself
  • 00:09:26.120 --> 00:09:27.120
  • with anything except
  • 00:09:27.120 --> 00:09:28.100
  • the food he ate."
  • 00:09:28.100 --> 00:09:29.100
  • His number one concern
  • 00:09:29.100 --> 00:09:31.110
  • on a daily basis, Potiphar's,
  • 00:09:31.110 --> 00:09:32.010
  • because Joseph was there, was,
  • 00:09:32.010 --> 00:09:33.040
  • "Am I gonna have pizza
  • 00:09:33.040 --> 00:09:33.250
  • or chicken tonight?"
  • 00:09:33.250 --> 00:09:35.130
  • Man that must be nice, right?
  • 00:09:35.130 --> 00:09:37.150
  • To have someone who is so good
  • 00:09:37.150 --> 00:09:39.180
  • at what they do that you show up
  • 00:09:39.180 --> 00:09:40.200
  • at the office and you're like,
  • 00:09:40.200 --> 00:09:41.220
  • "I don't even need to be here.
  • 00:09:41.220 --> 00:09:42.240
  • Joseph's got it.
  • 00:09:42.240 --> 00:09:43.270
  • I mean, what do I need to do
  • 00:09:43.270 --> 00:09:44.150
  • all day?"
  • 00:09:44.150 --> 00:09:45.090
  • Right?
  • 00:09:45.090 --> 00:09:46.030
  • Which, by the way, here's
  • 00:09:46.030 --> 00:09:47.010
  • the perfect example of a CEO-COO
  • 00:09:47.010 --> 00:09:50.010
  • relationship, how it's supposed
  • 00:09:50.010 --> 00:09:51.000
  • to work, is that someone's
  • 00:09:51.000 --> 00:09:52.140
  • supposed to be running
  • 00:09:52.140 --> 00:09:53.070
  • everything so that the head
  • 00:09:53.070 --> 00:09:54.230
  • person can then have
  • 00:09:54.230 --> 00:09:55.260
  • their mind in the future, and
  • 00:09:55.260 --> 00:09:57.270
  • then their world is in today.
  • 00:09:57.270 --> 00:09:59.160
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:09:59.160 --> 00:10:00.040
  • That Joseph was like,
  • 00:10:00.040 --> 00:10:01.050
  • "I got this so you can
  • 00:10:01.050 --> 00:10:02.080
  • go work on expansion.
  • 00:10:02.080 --> 00:10:03.130
  • You can go work on the
  • 00:10:03.130 --> 00:10:04.040
  • next big dream.
  • 00:10:04.040 --> 00:10:04.280
  • You can go work something--"
  • 00:10:04.280 --> 00:10:05.170
  • he says, "I got this."
  • 00:10:05.170 --> 00:10:06.140
  • That's important.
  • 00:10:06.140 --> 00:10:07.000
  • So, D is this, focus on adding
  • 00:10:07.000 --> 00:10:08.270
  • value everywhere you go.
  • 00:10:09.030 --> 00:10:12.030
  • Wherever Joseph went,
  • 00:10:12.030 --> 00:10:13.010
  • things got better,
  • 00:10:13.010 --> 00:10:14.180
  • and people liked him, too.
  • 00:10:14.180 --> 00:10:15.230
  • That's important to know.
  • 00:10:15.230 --> 00:10:16.170
  • As we're about to see,
  • 00:10:16.170 --> 00:10:17.070
  • people really like him, as we're
  • 00:10:17.070 --> 00:10:19.070
  • about to see in just a moment.
  • 00:10:19.070 --> 00:10:20.080
  • Potiphar's wife
  • 00:10:20.080 --> 00:10:21.000
  • really liked him.
  • 00:10:21.000 --> 00:10:22.180
  • And so, the enemy all of
  • 00:10:22.180 --> 00:10:24.000
  • a sudden comes after Joseph
  • 00:10:24.000 --> 00:10:25.110
  • in a big way, and the enemy
  • 00:10:25.110 --> 00:10:26.230
  • always attacks us fist, morally.
  • 00:10:26.230 --> 00:10:29.130
  • That's the first way he attacks
  • 00:10:29.130 --> 00:10:30.280
  • us, then he'll attack us from
  • 00:10:30.280 --> 00:10:32.050
  • outside ways as well, as we'll
  • 00:10:32.050 --> 00:10:34.000
  • see both of these right
  • 00:10:34.000 --> 00:10:34.240
  • here in Scripture.
  • 00:10:34.240 --> 00:10:35.280
  • Check it out.
  • 00:10:35.280 --> 00:10:36.180
  • It says in verse 6, "Now Joseph
  • 00:10:36.180 --> 00:10:38.150
  • was well-built and handsome."
  • 00:10:38.150 --> 00:10:40.210
  • Now, that may seem like
  • 00:10:40.210 --> 00:10:41.180
  • a nice thing, but it's actually
  • 00:10:41.180 --> 00:10:42.130
  • a real problem for Joseph,
  • 00:10:42.130 --> 00:10:43.230
  • and I understand, I've had
  • 00:10:43.230 --> 00:10:44.140
  • this problem my whole life.
  • 00:10:44.190 --> 00:10:47.190
  • Just kidding.
  • 00:10:47.190 --> 00:10:48.080
  • Okay, check it out.
  • 00:10:48.080 --> 00:10:49.290
  • "Now Joseph
  • 00:10:49.290 --> 00:10:50.210
  • was well-built and handsome.
  • 00:10:50.210 --> 00:10:51.260
  • And after a while, his master's
  • 00:10:51.260 --> 00:10:53.040
  • wife took notice of Joseph and
  • 00:10:53.040 --> 00:10:54.220
  • said, 'Come to bed with me.'"
  • 00:10:54.220 --> 00:10:56.030
  • This is a very forward woman,
  • 00:10:56.030 --> 00:10:57.100
  • right?
  • 00:10:57.100 --> 00:10:58.050
  • She's like, "Hey, let's go
  • 00:10:58.050 --> 00:10:59.080
  • get it on right now."
  • 00:10:59.080 --> 00:11:00.150
  • Verse 8, "But he refused.
  • 00:11:00.150 --> 00:11:01.270
  • 'With me in charge,' he told
  • 00:11:01.270 --> 00:11:02.280
  • her, 'My master doesn't concern
  • 00:11:02.280 --> 00:11:04.060
  • himself with anything.
  • 00:11:04.060 --> 00:11:05.070
  • Everything he owns,
  • 00:11:05.070 --> 00:11:05.280
  • he has entrusted to my care.'"
  • 00:11:05.280 --> 00:11:07.110
  • Now, he's not bragging to her,
  • 00:11:07.110 --> 00:11:08.200
  • he's trying to say, "Your
  • 00:11:08.200 --> 00:11:10.130
  • husband's been so good to me.
  • 00:11:10.130 --> 00:11:11.130
  • Why would I do this?"
  • 00:11:11.130 --> 00:11:13.130
  • Right, he's saying, "Why would
  • 00:11:13.130 --> 00:11:15.040
  • I be disloyal to the man
  • 00:11:15.040 --> 00:11:16.080
  • who has been so good to me?
  • 00:11:16.080 --> 00:11:17.290
  • Why would I do that?"
  • 00:11:17.290 --> 00:11:19.070
  • That's just dumb, right?
  • 00:11:19.070 --> 00:11:20.040
  • Then he says this, he says,
  • 00:11:20.040 --> 00:11:21.000
  • "Everything he owns, he's
  • 00:11:21.000 --> 00:11:21.280
  • entrusted to my care.
  • 00:11:21.280 --> 00:11:22.280
  • No one is greater in this
  • 00:11:22.280 --> 00:11:24.030
  • household than I am.
  • 00:11:24.030 --> 00:11:25.010
  • My master has withheld nothing
  • 00:11:25.010 --> 00:11:26.060
  • from me except you,
  • 00:11:26.060 --> 00:11:27.090
  • because you are his wife."
  • 00:11:27.090 --> 00:11:28.130
  • Then he reminds her,
  • 00:11:28.130 --> 00:11:29.040
  • "Oh, and by the way,
  • 00:11:29.040 --> 00:11:30.020
  • if you're gonna get it on
  • 00:11:30.020 --> 00:11:31.050
  • it should be with him, not me.
  • 00:11:31.050 --> 00:11:33.120
  • You're married to him.
  • 00:11:33.120 --> 00:11:34.150
  • Go get your freak nasty on
  • 00:11:34.150 --> 00:11:35.260
  • with him, not me."
  • 00:11:35.260 --> 00:11:38.130
  • I don't actually know what
  • 00:11:38.130 --> 00:11:39.010
  • that means.
  • 00:11:39.010 --> 00:11:39.180
  • Please don't Google that,
  • 00:11:39.180 --> 00:11:40.090
  • that's probably bad.
  • 00:11:40.090 --> 00:11:42.290
  • Okay, so look at this,
  • 00:11:42.290 --> 00:11:45.070
  • this is important.
  • 00:11:45.070 --> 00:11:45.270
  • So he says what?
  • 00:11:45.270 --> 00:11:46.190
  • He says, "You're his wife."
  • 00:11:46.190 --> 00:11:48.020
  • Then he says, "How then could
  • 00:11:48.020 --> 00:11:49.020
  • I do such a wicked thing
  • 00:11:49.020 --> 00:11:49.270
  • and sin against God?"
  • 00:11:49.270 --> 00:11:51.090
  • Oh, there's the real reason,
  • 00:11:51.090 --> 00:11:52.020
  • right?
  • 00:11:52.020 --> 00:11:52.170
  • He's like, "I can't do this
  • 00:11:52.170 --> 00:11:53.050
  • against God.
  • 00:11:53.050 --> 00:11:54.030
  • God's been so good to me."
  • 00:11:54.030 --> 00:11:55.020
  • Now, this is a guy that's being
  • 00:11:55.020 --> 00:11:56.070
  • grateful towards God from
  • 00:11:56.070 --> 00:11:57.180
  • the position of being a slave.
  • 00:11:57.240 --> 00:12:00.260
  • What?
  • 00:12:00.260 --> 00:12:02.000
  • So he's thanking God for
  • 00:12:02.000 --> 00:12:03.280
  • his goodness in his life and
  • 00:12:03.280 --> 00:12:04.230
  • he doesn't even have freedom.
  • 00:12:04.230 --> 00:12:07.090
  • Does that maybe change
  • 00:12:07.090 --> 00:12:08.110
  • you and I in our perspective on
  • 00:12:08.110 --> 00:12:09.250
  • whether we're grateful or not?
  • 00:12:09.250 --> 00:12:12.070
  • I mean, can we just stop for
  • 00:12:12.070 --> 00:12:14.070
  • a moment and just say, "God,
  • 00:12:14.070 --> 00:12:15.090
  • you've been so good to me.
  • 00:12:15.260 --> 00:12:18.260
  • You've been so good to us."
  • 00:12:18.260 --> 00:12:20.260
  • Can we just honor God right now
  • 00:12:20.260 --> 00:12:22.060
  • for a moment, and just say,
  • 00:12:22.060 --> 00:12:23.050
  • "God, thank you
  • 00:12:23.050 --> 00:12:24.060
  • for your goodness."
  • 00:12:24.060 --> 00:12:26.270
  • He's so good, isn't he?
  • 00:12:29.010 --> 00:12:32.010
  • Check it out.
  • 00:12:32.010 --> 00:12:32.220
  • It says, "Day after day,
  • 00:12:32.220 --> 00:12:34.040
  • he refused to go to bed with her
  • 00:12:34.040 --> 00:12:35.070
  • or even be with her."
  • 00:12:35.070 --> 00:12:36.280
  • Please underline,
  • 00:12:36.280 --> 00:12:37.190
  • "Even be with her."
  • 00:12:37.190 --> 00:12:38.060
  • This is important.
  • 00:12:38.060 --> 00:12:38.210
  • You wanna know how you can
  • 00:12:38.210 --> 00:12:39.080
  • overcome temptation?
  • 00:12:39.080 --> 00:12:40.010
  • Stay away from it.
  • 00:12:40.010 --> 00:12:42.020
  • So maybe you say,
  • 00:12:42.020 --> 00:12:42.230
  • "I need to change my habits.
  • 00:12:42.230 --> 00:12:43.220
  • I need to not do that anymore.
  • 00:12:43.220 --> 00:12:44.210
  • Instead of going Friday nights
  • 00:12:44.210 --> 00:12:45.200
  • with them, I'm gonna go join
  • 00:12:45.200 --> 00:12:46.200
  • a small group and go to
  • 00:12:46.200 --> 00:12:48.070
  • the Life Group on Friday night."
  • 00:12:48.070 --> 00:12:49.050
  • Here you've got an example.
  • 00:12:49.050 --> 00:12:50.100
  • This is Potiphar's wife.
  • 00:12:50.100 --> 00:12:51.090
  • They don't actually name her,
  • 00:12:51.090 --> 00:12:52.110
  • let's just call her Hotiphar.
  • 00:12:52.110 --> 00:12:53.210
  • Okay, so Hotiphar was the very
  • 00:12:54.100 --> 00:12:57.100
  • definition of a cougar, okay,
  • 00:12:57.100 --> 00:12:58.290
  • that's what she was.
  • 00:12:58.290 --> 00:13:00.110
  • She's all over Joseph,
  • 00:13:00.110 --> 00:13:01.260
  • literally, I mean, she's just
  • 00:13:01.260 --> 00:13:02.190
  • hunting him down, "Come on,
  • 00:13:02.190 --> 00:13:03.190
  • baby, you know you want me.
  • 00:13:03.190 --> 00:13:04.250
  • Let's do this, come on."
  • 00:13:04.250 --> 00:13:05.290
  • And so, he's like, "Oh,
  • 00:13:05.290 --> 00:13:07.150
  • you've gotta be kidding me."
  • 00:13:07.150 --> 00:13:08.040
  • She is the very definition
  • 00:13:08.040 --> 00:13:09.150
  • of what Proverbs says is called
  • 00:13:09.150 --> 00:13:10.240
  • the adulterous woman.
  • 00:13:10.240 --> 00:13:12.040
  • That's what she is.
  • 00:13:12.040 --> 00:13:13.040
  • She's the very definition.
  • 00:13:13.040 --> 00:13:13.220
  • Now, there is such a thing
  • 00:13:13.220 --> 00:13:14.290
  • as an adulterous man, too,
  • 00:13:14.290 --> 00:13:15.280
  • no doubt about it, okay.
  • 00:13:15.280 --> 00:13:17.000
  • But, in a moment we're gonna
  • 00:13:17.000 --> 00:13:18.060
  • show you something about
  • 00:13:18.060 --> 00:13:19.040
  • Potiphar's wife, Hotiphar, that
  • 00:13:19.070 --> 00:13:22.070
  • I really believe is the case,
  • 00:13:22.070 --> 00:13:23.100
  • but I think that we're about to
  • 00:13:23.100 --> 00:13:24.260
  • discover that this is a trend
  • 00:13:24.260 --> 00:13:25.260
  • in her life, this is not just
  • 00:13:25.260 --> 00:13:26.290
  • a one-time thing.
  • 00:13:26.290 --> 00:13:27.240
  • I think she knows exactly
  • 00:13:27.240 --> 00:13:28.210
  • what she's doing.
  • 00:13:28.210 --> 00:13:29.160
  • Okay, and here's the thing
  • 00:13:29.160 --> 00:13:30.230
  • about her, too.
  • 00:13:30.230 --> 00:13:31.100
  • She's crazy.
  • 00:13:31.100 --> 00:13:32.120
  • And one of the ways you know you
  • 00:13:32.120 --> 00:13:33.020
  • have someone crazy is they
  • 00:13:33.020 --> 00:13:34.020
  • will try to manipulate you
  • 00:13:34.020 --> 00:13:34.270
  • emotionally.
  • 00:13:34.270 --> 00:13:36.060
  • That's how you know you have
  • 00:13:36.060 --> 00:13:37.120
  • a crazy person, okay.
  • 00:13:37.120 --> 00:13:38.060
  • You need to identify and know
  • 00:13:38.060 --> 00:13:39.230
  • they're crazy because they're
  • 00:13:39.230 --> 00:13:40.150
  • crazy enough to take you down
  • 00:13:40.150 --> 00:13:41.180
  • with 'em.
  • 00:13:41.180 --> 00:13:43.020
  • They will do that.
  • 00:13:43.020 --> 00:13:44.030
  • If you entrust them,
  • 00:13:44.030 --> 00:13:45.030
  • they'll take you down with 'em.
  • 00:13:45.030 --> 00:13:46.150
  • And they're whirlwind people.
  • 00:13:46.150 --> 00:13:48.000
  • You don't even have to be
  • 00:13:48.000 --> 00:13:49.030
  • involved with them directly,
  • 00:13:49.030 --> 00:13:50.040
  • but indirectly they'll hurt you.
  • 00:13:50.040 --> 00:13:51.290
  • And she is nuts as can be.
  • 00:13:51.290 --> 00:13:54.090
  • She's like, "Hi, Joseph,
  • 00:13:54.090 --> 00:13:55.250
  • how you doin'?"
  • 00:13:55.250 --> 00:13:56.230
  • She seems all seductive,
  • 00:13:56.230 --> 00:13:58.000
  • and sweet, and awesome, but boy
  • 00:13:58.000 --> 00:13:59.210
  • does she turn that fast on him.
  • 00:13:59.210 --> 00:14:01.070
  • So, check this out, that's how
  • 00:14:01.070 --> 00:14:02.170
  • we know she's crazy as a loon.
  • 00:14:02.170 --> 00:14:03.230
  • Check it out.
  • 00:14:03.230 --> 00:14:04.120
  • This is important.
  • 00:14:04.120 --> 00:14:04.280
  • Number two, we need to make
  • 00:14:04.280 --> 00:14:06.090
  • no room for compromise.
  • 00:14:06.090 --> 00:14:08.100
  • You make room for it,
  • 00:14:08.100 --> 00:14:09.040
  • you're gonna compromise.
  • 00:14:09.040 --> 00:14:10.080
  • You gotta make no room for it.
  • 00:14:10.080 --> 00:14:12.150
  • "Pastor Bil, how do you
  • 00:14:12.150 --> 00:14:13.060
  • overcome temptation?"
  • 00:14:13.060 --> 00:14:14.010
  • Don't go near it.
  • 00:14:14.010 --> 00:14:16.020
  • It's not 'cause I'm so strong,
  • 00:14:16.020 --> 00:14:17.100
  • it's 'cause I'm so weak.
  • 00:14:17.100 --> 00:14:18.150
  • I just stay away from it.
  • 00:14:18.150 --> 00:14:19.220
  • Just make no room for it.
  • 00:14:19.220 --> 00:14:20.170
  • "Oh man, it's so hard not to
  • 00:14:20.170 --> 00:14:21.290
  • look at the wrong channels,"
  • 00:14:21.290 --> 00:14:23.110
  • then don't have
  • 00:14:23.110 --> 00:14:24.020
  • the wrong channels.
  • 00:14:24.020 --> 00:14:24.290
  • "Man, it's so hard to not be,
  • 00:14:24.290 --> 00:14:25.270
  • you know, messing with
  • 00:14:25.270 --> 00:14:27.000
  • the wrong person at the bar."
  • 00:14:27.000 --> 00:14:27.270
  • Don't go to a bar.
  • 00:14:27.270 --> 00:14:30.000
  • In other words, if you're
  • 00:14:30.000 --> 00:14:30.190
  • tempted by doughnuts, don't
  • 00:14:30.190 --> 00:14:31.160
  • work at the doughnut factory.
  • 00:14:31.160 --> 00:14:32.240
  • This is not hard.
  • 00:14:32.240 --> 00:14:34.240
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:14:34.240 --> 00:14:36.120
  • I mean, it's real simple.
  • 00:14:36.120 --> 00:14:38.130
  • If Mexican food is a weakness,
  • 00:14:38.130 --> 00:14:39.290
  • do not work at a tacoria,
  • 00:14:39.290 --> 00:14:41.100
  • that would be a problem.
  • 00:14:41.100 --> 00:14:43.240
  • And so, we need to
  • 00:14:43.240 --> 00:14:46.020
  • uncomplicate temptation.
  • 00:14:46.020 --> 00:14:47.110
  • Can we do that real quick?
  • 00:14:47.110 --> 00:14:48.180
  • Let's just uncomplicate it,
  • 00:14:48.180 --> 00:14:49.140
  • okay.
  • 00:14:49.140 --> 00:14:50.040
  • The fastest way to overcome
  • 00:14:50.040 --> 00:14:51.000
  • temptation is to put blocks
  • 00:14:51.000 --> 00:14:52.030
  • in your life, is to put hedges
  • 00:14:52.030 --> 00:14:53.010
  • of protection.
  • 00:14:53.010 --> 00:14:53.280
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:14:53.280 --> 00:14:54.280
  • And so, we need to learn
  • 00:14:54.280 --> 00:14:55.260
  • to build some fences around
  • 00:14:55.260 --> 00:14:57.190
  • ourselves and keep from things.
  • 00:14:57.190 --> 00:14:59.040
  • And so, this is really
  • 00:14:59.040 --> 00:15:00.100
  • important.
  • 00:15:00.100 --> 00:15:00.260
  • Make no room for compromise.
  • 00:15:00.260 --> 00:15:01.140
  • Now, he avoids her as much as he
  • 00:15:01.140 --> 00:15:02.130
  • can, but at some point he can't
  • 00:15:02.130 --> 00:15:04.060
  • avoid her and he has to face
  • 00:15:04.060 --> 00:15:05.110
  • temptation directly.
  • 00:15:05.110 --> 00:15:06.220
  • Look at verse 11.
  • 00:15:06.220 --> 00:15:07.180
  • "One day she caught him."
  • 00:15:07.180 --> 00:15:09.170
  • She literally grabbed him.
  • 00:15:09.170 --> 00:15:11.000
  • I can only imagine where she
  • 00:15:11.000 --> 00:15:11.210
  • grabbed, I don't wanna know.
  • 00:15:11.210 --> 00:15:13.230
  • "She caught him by his cloak and
  • 00:15:13.230 --> 00:15:15.000
  • said, 'Come to bed with me,' but
  • 00:15:15.000 --> 00:15:16.090
  • he left his cloak in her hand
  • 00:15:16.090 --> 00:15:17.170
  • and ran out of the house.
  • 00:15:17.170 --> 00:15:18.160
  • When she saw that she had his
  • 00:15:18.160 --> 00:15:19.200
  • cloak in her hand and that
  • 00:15:19.200 --> 00:15:21.070
  • he had run out of the house, she
  • 00:15:21.070 --> 00:15:22.010
  • called her household servants.
  • 00:15:22.010 --> 00:15:23.000
  • 'Look, this Hebrew,'"
  • 00:15:23.000 --> 00:15:24.110
  • that makes me so mad when
  • 00:15:24.110 --> 00:15:25.170
  • I see that, by the way.
  • 00:15:25.170 --> 00:15:26.160
  • Oh, that makes me mad.
  • 00:15:26.160 --> 00:15:27.210
  • You gotta understand
  • 00:15:27.210 --> 00:15:28.120
  • the context of this.
  • 00:15:28.120 --> 00:15:29.030
  • "Look at this Hebrew."
  • 00:15:29.030 --> 00:15:30.130
  • You know, there's no mention of
  • 00:15:30.130 --> 00:15:32.130
  • his race before, and suddenly
  • 00:15:32.250 --> 00:15:35.250
  • she doesn't get what she wants
  • 00:15:35.250 --> 00:15:37.000
  • and all of a sudden now
  • 00:15:37.000 --> 00:15:38.220
  • he's a Hebrew.
  • 00:15:38.220 --> 00:15:40.090
  • So frustrating.
  • 00:15:40.090 --> 00:15:41.240
  • This is such the world
  • 00:15:41.240 --> 00:15:42.150
  • we live in today.
  • 00:15:42.150 --> 00:15:43.070
  • There is real racism.
  • 00:15:43.070 --> 00:15:44.190
  • I will openly acknowledge it.
  • 00:15:44.190 --> 00:15:46.150
  • There is real racism, but
  • 00:15:46.150 --> 00:15:47.140
  • there's also people who use
  • 00:15:47.140 --> 00:15:49.060
  • this for their agenda, and
  • 00:15:49.060 --> 00:15:51.240
  • that's where I--at this moment,
  • 00:15:51.240 --> 00:15:53.090
  • this is a bunch of garbage.
  • 00:15:53.090 --> 00:15:55.080
  • This makes me so mad,
  • 00:15:55.080 --> 00:15:56.040
  • 'cause she all of a sudden,
  • 00:15:56.040 --> 00:15:56.270
  • "Look at this Hebrew.
  • 00:15:56.270 --> 00:15:57.190
  • He doesn't speak our language,
  • 00:15:57.190 --> 00:15:58.220
  • he doesn't look like us,
  • 00:15:58.220 --> 00:15:59.160
  • he doesn't act like us."
  • 00:15:59.160 --> 00:16:01.200
  • You know what's funny?
  • 00:16:01.200 --> 00:16:02.140
  • You were all cool with me when
  • 00:16:02.140 --> 00:16:03.100
  • I was cleaning your backyard.
  • 00:16:03.100 --> 00:16:05.230
  • You were all cool with me when
  • 00:16:05.230 --> 00:16:06.120
  • I was taking care of your house,
  • 00:16:06.120 --> 00:16:07.110
  • but all of a sudden you don't
  • 00:16:07.110 --> 00:16:08.030
  • like me 'cause you didn't get
  • 00:16:08.030 --> 00:16:08.220
  • what you want, and all of
  • 00:16:08.220 --> 00:16:09.160
  • a sudden you throw that out.
  • 00:16:09.160 --> 00:16:10.100
  • Very frustrating, right?
  • 00:16:10.100 --> 00:16:11.060
  • So now, all of a sudden,
  • 00:16:11.060 --> 00:16:11.280
  • it's bad to be Hebrew.
  • 00:16:11.280 --> 00:16:12.240
  • It wasn't bad before,
  • 00:16:12.240 --> 00:16:13.260
  • now it's bad.
  • 00:16:13.260 --> 00:16:14.260
  • Look what happens next.
  • 00:16:14.260 --> 00:16:15.190
  • "Look, this Hebrew has been
  • 00:16:15.190 --> 00:16:16.210
  • brought to us to make sport of
  • 00:16:16.210 --> 00:16:18.120
  • us."
  • 00:16:18.120 --> 00:16:19.030
  • Now he's trying to include
  • 00:16:19.030 --> 00:16:19.290
  • everyone in, like, "Look what
  • 00:16:19.290 --> 00:16:21.040
  • he's done to us," like,
  • 00:16:21.040 --> 00:16:22.160
  • I'm pretty sure it was only
  • 00:16:22.160 --> 00:16:23.100
  • the two of you, but
  • 00:16:23.100 --> 00:16:24.290
  • she's trying to build her case.
  • 00:16:24.290 --> 00:16:26.040
  • Then she says this, "He came
  • 00:16:26.040 --> 00:16:27.130
  • in here to sleep with me,
  • 00:16:27.130 --> 00:16:28.100
  • but I screamed.
  • 00:16:28.100 --> 00:16:29.090
  • When he heard me scream for
  • 00:16:29.090 --> 00:16:30.040
  • help, he left his cloak beside
  • 00:16:30.040 --> 00:16:31.180
  • me and ran out of the house."
  • 00:16:31.180 --> 00:16:32.280
  • So basically, she jumps on him.
  • 00:16:32.280 --> 00:16:33.190
  • I can only imagine what
  • 00:16:33.190 --> 00:16:34.160
  • that looked like, something
  • 00:16:34.160 --> 00:16:35.050
  • on late-night HBO, right?
  • 00:16:35.050 --> 00:16:37.060
  • She jumps on him, okay,
  • 00:16:37.060 --> 00:16:39.040
  • and he immediately is like,
  • 00:16:39.040 --> 00:16:40.020
  • "You can have the shirt, but
  • 00:16:40.020 --> 00:16:41.080
  • you're not gonna have me."
  • 00:16:41.080 --> 00:16:42.080
  • So he, like, runs out of there
  • 00:16:42.080 --> 00:16:43.140
  • as fast as he can.
  • 00:16:43.140 --> 00:16:44.070
  • Here's my clothes, my cloak,
  • 00:16:44.070 --> 00:16:45.020
  • I'm outa here, right?
  • 00:16:45.020 --> 00:16:45.280
  • You can take that, but I'm gone.
  • 00:16:45.280 --> 00:16:46.200
  • So, she's grabbing a hold of him
  • 00:16:46.200 --> 00:16:48.050
  • and he strips of the shirt
  • 00:16:48.050 --> 00:16:49.270
  • and runs, right?
  • 00:16:49.270 --> 00:16:50.250
  • And so, she holds it,
  • 00:16:50.250 --> 00:16:51.270
  • and she realizes it now.
  • 00:16:51.270 --> 00:16:52.160
  • Isn't it amazing how fast she
  • 00:16:52.160 --> 00:16:53.130
  • goes, "Oh, I love you, baby.
  • 00:16:53.130 --> 00:16:55.000
  • Oh, it's just gonna be me
  • 00:16:55.000 --> 00:16:56.010
  • and you."
  • 00:16:56.010 --> 00:16:56.160
  • All of a sudden,
  • 00:16:56.160 --> 00:16:57.010
  • "You tried
  • 00:16:57.010 --> 00:16:57.160
  • to rape me."
  • 00:16:57.160 --> 00:16:58.240
  • Psycho.
  • 00:16:59.240 --> 00:17:02.260
  • What?
  • 00:17:02.260 --> 00:17:04.010
  • I'm trying to--if anyone's
  • 00:17:04.010 --> 00:17:04.240
  • trying to rape anybody, it was
  • 00:17:04.240 --> 00:17:06.050
  • you trying to rape me, right?
  • 00:17:06.050 --> 00:17:07.180
  • He's like, "Get away from me."
  • 00:17:07.180 --> 00:17:09.020
  • He's, like, trying to push
  • 00:17:09.020 --> 00:17:09.260
  • her away and she is getting
  • 00:17:09.260 --> 00:17:11.290
  • her freak on, and
  • 00:17:11.290 --> 00:17:12.260
  • he is running as fast as he can.
  • 00:17:12.260 --> 00:17:14.210
  • You know, at this point I don't
  • 00:17:14.210 --> 00:17:15.190
  • wanna say stop talking and start
  • 00:17:15.190 --> 00:17:16.200
  • doing, I wanna say stop
  • 00:17:16.200 --> 00:17:18.050
  • taking and start running, right?
  • 00:17:18.050 --> 00:17:20.260
  • Get out of there as fast
  • 00:17:20.260 --> 00:17:21.140
  • as you can.
  • 00:17:21.140 --> 00:17:22.060
  • And so, she is so crazy that she
  • 00:17:22.060 --> 00:17:23.170
  • shifts gears on him and she's
  • 00:17:23.170 --> 00:17:25.080
  • like, "Oh, I love you, baby,
  • 00:17:25.080 --> 00:17:26.250
  • I love you," all of a sudden
  • 00:17:26.250 --> 00:17:27.200
  • she turns on him
  • 00:17:27.200 --> 00:17:28.140
  • and calls for her husband,
  • 00:17:28.140 --> 00:17:29.180
  • and calls for him to come in.
  • 00:17:29.180 --> 00:17:30.160
  • "He tried to rape me."
  • 00:17:30.160 --> 00:17:31.200
  • And this is what happens.
  • 00:17:31.200 --> 00:17:32.150
  • I've seen this so many times,
  • 00:17:32.150 --> 00:17:34.160
  • guys, in people as a pastor.
  • 00:17:34.160 --> 00:17:35.180
  • I unfortunately get to kind of
  • 00:17:35.180 --> 00:17:36.260
  • be in the inside of a lot of
  • 00:17:36.260 --> 00:17:37.230
  • junk, and I see this
  • 00:17:37.230 --> 00:17:39.120
  • all the time about the girl
  • 00:17:39.120 --> 00:17:40.200
  • at the office that was
  • 00:17:40.200 --> 00:17:41.240
  • so enticing and sweet.
  • 00:17:41.240 --> 00:17:42.260
  • Next thing you know,
  • 00:17:42.260 --> 00:17:43.160
  • you start messin' around.
  • 00:17:43.160 --> 00:17:44.180
  • Guess what?
  • 00:17:44.180 --> 00:17:45.040
  • She's calling your boss,
  • 00:17:45.040 --> 00:17:46.030
  • you've lost your job, and
  • 00:17:46.030 --> 00:17:47.020
  • she was the one enticing you.
  • 00:17:47.020 --> 00:17:48.210
  • It's crazy.
  • 00:17:48.210 --> 00:17:49.210
  • I've see it with guys, too.
  • 00:17:49.210 --> 00:17:50.240
  • Guys are all, "Oh baby, I love
  • 00:17:50.240 --> 00:17:52.030
  • you forever," and all of
  • 00:17:52.030 --> 00:17:53.050
  • a sudden he what he wants,
  • 00:17:53.050 --> 00:17:53.270
  • bam, he's out of there.
  • 00:17:53.270 --> 00:17:54.230
  • Craziness, total manipulation.
  • 00:17:54.230 --> 00:17:56.270
  • She goes from, "I love you,
  • 00:17:56.270 --> 00:17:58.110
  • baby," to "I'm gonna accuse you
  • 00:17:58.110 --> 00:17:59.170
  • of rape," and I'm tellin' you,
  • 00:17:59.170 --> 00:18:01.070
  • 0-60 in 0.2 seconds.
  • 00:18:01.070 --> 00:18:03.100
  • Now, here's the--let me
  • 00:18:03.100 --> 00:18:04.020
  • just say this real quick, too.
  • 00:18:04.020 --> 00:18:04.260
  • Maybe your temptation is not
  • 00:18:04.260 --> 00:18:05.290
  • moral, maybe your temptation is
  • 00:18:05.290 --> 00:18:08.080
  • you're tempted to stay bitter at
  • 00:18:08.080 --> 00:18:10.080
  • someone, to not forgive someone.
  • 00:18:10.080 --> 00:18:12.100
  • Maybe your temptation is gossip.
  • 00:18:12.100 --> 00:18:14.130
  • So, everyone has a different
  • 00:18:14.130 --> 00:18:15.130
  • form of temptation, and ladies,
  • 00:18:15.130 --> 00:18:16.250
  • before you elbow your husbands
  • 00:18:16.250 --> 00:18:18.210
  • or your boyfriend, before you
  • 00:18:18.210 --> 00:18:20.100
  • do that and say, "Yeah, you need
  • 00:18:20.100 --> 00:18:21.070
  • to be careful with
  • 00:18:21.070 --> 00:18:22.020
  • this kind of woman."
  • 00:18:22.020 --> 00:18:22.170
  • Hold on, ladies,
  • 00:18:22.170 --> 00:18:23.100
  • let me just say this.
  • 00:18:23.100 --> 00:18:24.210
  • Women fall into adultery, too,
  • 00:18:24.210 --> 00:18:26.220
  • they just fall into it
  • 00:18:26.220 --> 00:18:27.180
  • relationally.
  • 00:18:27.180 --> 00:18:29.050
  • This is when you're at
  • 00:18:29.050 --> 00:18:30.010
  • the office and you're
  • 00:18:30.010 --> 00:18:30.260
  • complaining about your husband
  • 00:18:30.260 --> 00:18:31.150
  • to another man.
  • 00:18:31.150 --> 00:18:33.020
  • That's just--can I tell you
  • 00:18:33.020 --> 00:18:33.220
  • what that is?
  • 00:18:33.220 --> 00:18:34.080
  • That's stupid.
  • 00:18:34.080 --> 00:18:35.110
  • You're setting yourself up
  • 00:18:35.110 --> 00:18:36.200
  • for a fall.
  • 00:18:36.200 --> 00:18:37.180
  • You're beginning to lean on
  • 00:18:37.180 --> 00:18:38.150
  • someone else emotionally
  • 00:18:38.150 --> 00:18:39.100
  • rather than your husband.
  • 00:18:39.100 --> 00:18:40.030
  • And you say, "But
  • 00:18:40.030 --> 00:18:40.290
  • my best friend, you know,
  • 00:18:40.290 --> 00:18:41.270
  • is another guy.
  • 00:18:41.270 --> 00:18:43.090
  • And we've been best friends
  • 00:18:43.090 --> 00:18:43.270
  • for a long time.
  • 00:18:43.270 --> 00:18:44.230
  • My husband already knew about
  • 00:18:44.230 --> 00:18:45.150
  • him before we ever even met."
  • 00:18:45.150 --> 00:18:46.180
  • No, there's no grandfathering
  • 00:18:46.180 --> 00:18:47.070
  • this in.
  • 00:18:47.070 --> 00:18:48.080
  • The moment you fell in love with
  • 00:18:48.080 --> 00:18:49.270
  • your husband is the moment that
  • 00:18:49.270 --> 00:18:50.270
  • your best friend that's a man
  • 00:18:50.270 --> 00:18:52.280
  • is no longer your best friend.
  • 00:18:52.280 --> 00:18:54.210
  • There's no grandfathering
  • 00:18:54.210 --> 00:18:55.210
  • that in.
  • 00:18:55.210 --> 00:18:56.130
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:18:56.130 --> 00:18:58.270
  • I'm dropping truth on you.
  • 00:18:58.270 --> 00:19:01.290
  • That's a big deal.
  • 00:19:01.290 --> 00:19:03.160
  • Same goes for you, guys, you're
  • 00:19:03.160 --> 00:19:04.190
  • not gonna have a best friend
  • 00:19:04.190 --> 00:19:05.120
  • of the opposite sex.
  • 00:19:05.120 --> 00:19:06.090
  • Not gonna happen, 'cause it
  • 00:19:06.090 --> 00:19:07.130
  • doesn't work like that, okay.
  • 00:19:07.130 --> 00:19:08.280
  • When you get married,
  • 00:19:08.280 --> 00:19:10.030
  • that's your best friend.
  • 00:19:10.030 --> 00:19:11.290
  • That's how that works.
  • 00:19:11.290 --> 00:19:13.040
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:19:13.040 --> 00:19:14.050
  • It's a really big deal.
  • 00:19:14.050 --> 00:19:14.260
  • So, women will fall typically
  • 00:19:14.260 --> 00:19:15.280
  • relationally, start to lean on
  • 00:19:15.280 --> 00:19:17.250
  • another guy, that kind of thing,
  • 00:19:17.250 --> 00:19:18.260
  • and men are visual, ladies,
  • 00:19:18.260 --> 00:19:20.200
  • and so it's a big deal.
  • 00:19:20.200 --> 00:19:21.260
  • And so what men see, they want.
  • 00:19:21.260 --> 00:19:24.050
  • And so you have to be real
  • 00:19:24.050 --> 00:19:25.190
  • careful with that, with what you
  • 00:19:25.190 --> 00:19:26.220
  • allow your eyes to see, guys.
  • 00:19:26.220 --> 00:19:28.000
  • It's really a big deal.
  • 00:19:28.000 --> 00:19:29.090
  • But let me just say this real
  • 00:19:29.090 --> 00:19:30.110
  • quick, too, to the men if I can.
  • 00:19:30.110 --> 00:19:31.160
  • I just wanna take a moment
  • 00:19:31.160 --> 00:19:32.150
  • on this, 'cause this is
  • 00:19:32.150 --> 00:19:33.110
  • a big problem.
  • 00:19:33.110 --> 00:19:33.290
  • I see this all the time.
  • 00:19:33.290 --> 00:19:34.200
  • I talk to a lot of guys, and
  • 00:19:34.200 --> 00:19:35.160
  • I wanna be real vulnerable
  • 00:19:35.160 --> 00:19:36.200
  • right now, if that's okay, and
  • 00:19:36.200 --> 00:19:37.180
  • just share some stuff, okay.
  • 00:19:37.180 --> 00:19:38.220
  • This is a big deal, okay.
  • 00:19:38.220 --> 00:19:39.240
  • So, I'm tempted like anyone
  • 00:19:39.240 --> 00:19:40.160
  • else, too, but let me tell you
  • 00:19:40.160 --> 00:19:41.210
  • something, men.
  • 00:19:41.210 --> 00:19:43.090
  • Champions have to win
  • 00:19:43.090 --> 00:19:45.270
  • on the road.
  • 00:19:45.270 --> 00:19:47.090
  • Are you a different guy when
  • 00:19:47.090 --> 00:19:49.220
  • you're out of town than you are
  • 00:19:49.220 --> 00:19:51.220
  • when you're in town?
  • 00:19:51.220 --> 00:19:53.110
  • It's a big deal.
  • 00:19:53.110 --> 00:19:55.090
  • So, you have to choose and make
  • 00:19:55.090 --> 00:19:57.240
  • some habits that when you travel
  • 00:19:57.240 --> 00:19:59.030
  • that you do things
  • 00:19:59.030 --> 00:20:00.150
  • to protect yourself.
  • 00:20:00.150 --> 00:20:01.250
  • So, there's a couple simple
  • 00:20:01.250 --> 00:20:02.150
  • things I do.
  • 00:20:02.150 --> 00:20:03.070
  • This may be too practical for
  • 00:20:03.070 --> 00:20:04.150
  • you, and you may thing, "Man, I
  • 00:20:04.150 --> 00:20:05.120
  • don't have this problem at all."
  • 00:20:05.120 --> 00:20:06.020
  • Great, awesome, but the average
  • 00:20:06.020 --> 00:20:07.180
  • guy does face this, okay.
  • 00:20:07.180 --> 00:20:09.050
  • So, this last year I was
  • 00:20:09.050 --> 00:20:10.200
  • traveling up to Canada,
  • 00:20:10.200 --> 00:20:11.220
  • I was doing a TV show up there,
  • 00:20:11.220 --> 00:20:13.020
  • and I went up there, did
  • 00:20:13.020 --> 00:20:14.070
  • the interview, it was great,
  • 00:20:14.070 --> 00:20:15.070
  • and afterwards I had all night.
  • 00:20:15.070 --> 00:20:16.120
  • I was like,
  • 00:20:16.120 --> 00:20:17.070
  • bored out of my mind.
  • 00:20:17.070 --> 00:20:18.020
  • I'm like, "Man, I'm just
  • 00:20:18.020 --> 00:20:19.050
  • sittin' around in a hotel
  • 00:20:19.050 --> 00:20:20.050
  • in another country."
  • 00:20:20.050 --> 00:20:21.240
  • It doesn't feel like another
  • 00:20:21.240 --> 00:20:22.170
  • country, but it is.
  • 00:20:22.170 --> 00:20:23.130
  • And so, I'm up there, and I'm
  • 00:20:23.130 --> 00:20:24.150
  • like, "I don't know anyone here,
  • 00:20:24.150 --> 00:20:25.120
  • what am I gonna do," right?
  • 00:20:25.120 --> 00:20:26.100
  • And so, you know what I did?
  • 00:20:26.100 --> 00:20:27.280
  • I went into my room, they had
  • 00:20:27.280 --> 00:20:29.180
  • a real nice hotel room for me,
  • 00:20:29.180 --> 00:20:31.010
  • it was real nice.
  • 00:20:31.010 --> 00:20:31.290
  • And so, I walked in, and I took
  • 00:20:31.290 --> 00:20:33.070
  • my little Beats, I got one of
  • 00:20:33.070 --> 00:20:34.280
  • those little speakers, and
  • 00:20:34.280 --> 00:20:36.040
  • I plugged into my phone, and
  • 00:20:36.040 --> 00:20:37.130
  • I turned on some praise music,
  • 00:20:37.130 --> 00:20:38.280
  • and then I left for about an
  • 00:20:38.280 --> 00:20:40.150
  • hour and went and got something
  • 00:20:40.150 --> 00:20:41.170
  • to eat and I came back,
  • 00:20:41.170 --> 00:20:42.210
  • and I let that praise music
  • 00:20:42.210 --> 00:20:43.160
  • fill the atmosphere of
  • 00:20:43.160 --> 00:20:44.190
  • my room with the presence of God
  • 00:20:44.190 --> 00:20:45.210
  • for about an hour.
  • 00:20:45.210 --> 00:20:47.230
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:20:47.230 --> 00:20:49.100
  • And I come in, and I hear that
  • 00:20:49.100 --> 00:20:50.170
  • praise music, and I'm like,
  • 00:20:50.170 --> 00:20:51.140
  • "God, I thank you that you're
  • 00:20:51.140 --> 00:20:52.030
  • here.
  • 00:20:52.030 --> 00:20:53.090
  • Your presence is here and
  • 00:20:53.090 --> 00:20:54.060
  • I'm gonna honor you tonight."
  • 00:20:54.060 --> 00:20:56.020
  • And then, guess what else I did?
  • 00:20:56.020 --> 00:20:56.260
  • I didn't turn on the TV, 'cause
  • 00:20:56.260 --> 00:20:57.240
  • I know you say, "Oh come in,
  • 00:20:57.240 --> 00:20:58.170
  • it's just TV."
  • 00:20:58.170 --> 00:20:59.140
  • No, it's not just TV, you know
  • 00:20:59.140 --> 00:21:00.210
  • what's on that television.
  • 00:21:00.210 --> 00:21:02.110
  • And men, we're visual.
  • 00:21:02.110 --> 00:21:04.010
  • Don't kid yourself,
  • 00:21:04.010 --> 00:21:05.070
  • don't lie to yourself and say,
  • 00:21:05.070 --> 00:21:06.040
  • "Oh, I'll be fine."
  • 00:21:06.040 --> 00:21:07.030
  • Were you fine last time?
  • 00:21:07.030 --> 00:21:08.280
  • Let's just not mess with it.
  • 00:21:08.280 --> 00:21:10.230
  • Now I know guys that actually
  • 00:21:10.230 --> 00:21:12.180
  • put the towel over the TV and
  • 00:21:12.180 --> 00:21:13.220
  • say, "I'm just not gonna turn
  • 00:21:13.220 --> 00:21:14.190
  • that on,
  • 00:21:14.190 --> 00:21:15.220
  • I'm just gonna avoid it."
  • 00:21:15.220 --> 00:21:16.220
  • And take your workout clothes.
  • 00:21:16.220 --> 00:21:17.280
  • Go work out.
  • 00:21:17.280 --> 00:21:19.040
  • You know, spend some more time
  • 00:21:19.040 --> 00:21:20.170
  • on work.
  • 00:21:20.170 --> 00:21:21.110
  • You know, when my wife
  • 00:21:21.110 --> 00:21:22.190
  • leaves town for some event
  • 00:21:22.190 --> 00:21:23.210
  • or something,
  • 00:21:23.210 --> 00:21:24.110
  • I become a workaholic.
  • 00:21:24.110 --> 00:21:25.150
  • You know why?
  • 00:21:25.150 --> 00:21:26.060
  • It's not bad then,
  • 00:21:26.060 --> 00:21:27.060
  • 'cause she's not there.
  • 00:21:27.060 --> 00:21:28.100
  • It's oaky, I just
  • 00:21:28.100 --> 00:21:29.030
  • work my way into the night.
  • 00:21:29.030 --> 00:21:30.150
  • I make sure the kids are good,
  • 00:21:30.150 --> 00:21:31.170
  • put them to bed, and then
  • 00:21:31.170 --> 00:21:32.110
  • just work all night.
  • 00:21:32.110 --> 00:21:33.020
  • And it's good, it's a great time
  • 00:21:33.020 --> 00:21:34.140
  • to accomplish more stuff, but
  • 00:21:34.140 --> 00:21:35.130
  • you've gotta have a set pattern.
  • 00:21:35.130 --> 00:21:37.180
  • If you don't, don't let
  • 00:21:37.180 --> 00:21:39.120
  • the pattern--don't let
  • 00:21:39.120 --> 00:21:40.210
  • bad habits pick what you do,
  • 00:21:40.210 --> 00:21:42.100
  • you pick what you do.
  • 00:21:42.100 --> 00:21:43.200
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:21:43.200 --> 00:21:45.160
  • Win on the road.
  • 00:21:45.160 --> 00:21:47.060
  • You can do it.
  • 00:21:47.060 --> 00:21:48.130
  • You can overcome temptation.
  • 00:21:48.130 --> 00:21:50.010
  • It's a big deal.
  • 00:21:50.050 --> 00:21:53.050
  • I wanna say this real quick,
  • 00:21:53.050 --> 00:21:53.230
  • too, before we go any further.
  • 00:21:53.230 --> 00:21:54.150
  • 1 John 1:9 says that if you
  • 00:21:54.150 --> 00:21:56.030
  • confess your sin, he is faithful
  • 00:21:56.030 --> 00:21:58.250
  • and just, and will forgive you
  • 00:21:58.250 --> 00:21:59.200
  • of all unrighteousness.
  • 00:21:59.200 --> 00:22:01.130
  • And so, I just wanna encourage
  • 00:22:01.130 --> 00:22:02.060
  • you today, don't feel beat up
  • 00:22:02.060 --> 00:22:03.140
  • right now from what I just said.
  • 00:22:03.140 --> 00:22:04.230
  • Let today be a new beginning
  • 00:22:04.230 --> 00:22:06.250
  • for you.
  • 00:22:06.250 --> 00:22:08.140
  • Let God's grace sweep over you
  • 00:22:08.140 --> 00:22:10.040
  • to know we're not trying--God's
  • 00:22:10.040 --> 00:22:12.050
  • not pointing his finger at your
  • 00:22:12.050 --> 00:22:13.040
  • like this, he's pointing
  • 00:22:13.040 --> 00:22:14.030
  • his finger to you like this,
  • 00:22:14.030 --> 00:22:14.240
  • saying, "Come here.
  • 00:22:14.240 --> 00:22:15.140
  • I love you.
  • 00:22:15.140 --> 00:22:16.070
  • You're forgiven.
  • 00:22:16.070 --> 00:22:17.090
  • This is a new start
  • 00:22:17.090 --> 00:22:18.110
  • for you today."
  • 00:22:18.110 --> 00:22:19.000
  • Would you let today be a mile
  • 00:22:19.000 --> 00:22:20.110
  • marker that says today I've been
  • 00:22:20.110 --> 00:22:21.210
  • forgiven in Christ and I renew
  • 00:22:21.210 --> 00:22:23.230
  • my commitment to him, and
  • 00:22:23.230 --> 00:22:25.040
  • I'm gonna not feel guilt
  • 00:22:25.040 --> 00:22:26.150
  • and shame for the past anymore.
  • 00:22:26.150 --> 00:22:27.260
  • Today is a new day.
  • 00:22:27.260 --> 00:22:29.060
  • I'm gonna walk outa here
  • 00:22:29.060 --> 00:22:30.000
  • a lighter person because I left
  • 00:22:30.000 --> 00:22:32.030
  • my sin at the altar.
  • 00:22:32.030 --> 00:22:34.150
  • Isn't that good?
  • 00:22:34.150 --> 00:22:35.120
  • Can we just give God a hand
  • 00:22:35.120 --> 00:22:36.060
  • for his grace, his mercy,
  • 00:22:36.060 --> 00:22:38.260
  • his forgiveness?
  • 00:22:39.080 --> 00:22:42.080
  • You're forgiven.
  • 00:22:42.080 --> 00:22:44.100
  • Look what happens next
  • 00:22:44.100 --> 00:22:45.030
  • in Scripture, verse 16.
  • 00:22:45.030 --> 00:22:46.230
  • Now, it doesn't go better,
  • 00:22:46.230 --> 00:22:47.240
  • it gets a little worse.
  • 00:22:47.240 --> 00:22:48.200
  • Check it out.
  • 00:22:48.200 --> 00:22:49.120
  • "That Hebrew slave you brought
  • 00:22:49.120 --> 00:22:50.230
  • us came to me
  • 00:22:50.230 --> 00:22:51.210
  • to make sport of me."
  • 00:22:51.210 --> 00:22:52.250
  • She's now talking to
  • 00:22:52.250 --> 00:22:53.140
  • her husband.
  • 00:22:53.140 --> 00:22:54.090
  • So he comes home all mad, right,
  • 00:22:54.090 --> 00:22:55.060
  • when he finds out
  • 00:22:55.060 --> 00:22:56.020
  • what's going on.
  • 00:22:56.020 --> 00:22:56.210
  • "But as soon as I screamed for
  • 00:22:56.210 --> 00:22:57.120
  • help, he left his cloak beside
  • 00:22:57.120 --> 00:22:58.190
  • me and ran out of the house.
  • 00:22:58.190 --> 00:22:59.190
  • Potiphar burned with anger and
  • 00:22:59.190 --> 00:23:01.250
  • took him and put him in prison,
  • 00:23:01.250 --> 00:23:02.230
  • the place where the king's
  • 00:23:02.230 --> 00:23:03.200
  • prisoners were confined."
  • 00:23:03.200 --> 00:23:04.290
  • Please write this down,
  • 00:23:04.290 --> 00:23:05.190
  • number four, again, forced exits
  • 00:23:05.190 --> 00:23:08.020
  • are God simply repositioning you
  • 00:23:08.020 --> 00:23:09.220
  • for greatness.
  • 00:23:09.220 --> 00:23:11.080
  • That, by the way, is the same
  • 00:23:11.080 --> 00:23:11.270
  • point from last week, 'cause
  • 00:23:11.270 --> 00:23:13.040
  • a forced exit took him to Egypt,
  • 00:23:13.040 --> 00:23:15.090
  • now a forced exit takes him from
  • 00:23:15.090 --> 00:23:16.130
  • Egypt to the palace, 'cause did
  • 00:23:16.130 --> 00:23:18.040
  • you know that the prison, in
  • 00:23:18.040 --> 00:23:19.180
  • all the Middle East, the prison
  • 00:23:19.180 --> 00:23:21.000
  • was underneath the palace.
  • 00:23:21.000 --> 00:23:23.120
  • I don't know if you knew that.
  • 00:23:23.120 --> 00:23:24.100
  • So actually, he's in prison,
  • 00:23:24.100 --> 00:23:26.030
  • but he's closer than ever to his
  • 00:23:26.030 --> 00:23:27.280
  • destiny to work in the palace,
  • 00:23:27.280 --> 00:23:30.090
  • okay.
  • 00:23:30.090 --> 00:23:30.250
  • Now, this is important,
  • 00:23:30.250 --> 00:23:31.170
  • by the way, because if you don't
  • 00:23:31.170 --> 00:23:32.080
  • overcome your moral issue,
  • 00:23:32.080 --> 00:23:34.130
  • it will stop you from
  • 00:23:34.130 --> 00:23:36.000
  • getting to the palace.
  • 00:23:36.000 --> 00:23:38.110
  • So, now he gets repositioned
  • 00:23:38.110 --> 00:23:40.140
  • and now he's literally
  • 00:23:40.140 --> 00:23:41.140
  • going to prison for something
  • 00:23:41.140 --> 00:23:42.120
  • he did not do.
  • 00:23:42.120 --> 00:23:43.290
  • More on that next week.
  • 00:23:43.290 --> 00:23:45.000
  • Don't let that frustrate you,
  • 00:23:45.000 --> 00:23:45.230
  • thinking he honored God,
  • 00:23:45.230 --> 00:23:46.280
  • he overcame temptation,
  • 00:23:46.280 --> 00:23:48.120
  • and he still goes to prison?
  • 00:23:48.120 --> 00:23:49.120
  • Yes, but when you're doing
  • 00:23:49.120 --> 00:23:51.200
  • everything right and you still
  • 00:23:51.200 --> 00:23:53.180
  • get wrong delivered to you,
  • 00:23:53.180 --> 00:23:55.190
  • that's because Satan tried to
  • 00:23:55.190 --> 00:23:57.120
  • attack you with your inner life
  • 00:23:57.120 --> 00:24:00.030
  • and you overcame it
  • 00:24:00.030 --> 00:24:01.110
  • so all he has left to do now
  • 00:24:01.110 --> 00:24:02.240
  • is attack you with lies.
  • 00:24:02.240 --> 00:24:05.040
  • This is why great leaders always
  • 00:24:05.040 --> 00:24:06.280
  • get attacked with lies, 'cause
  • 00:24:06.280 --> 00:24:08.190
  • they overcome the inner life
  • 00:24:08.190 --> 00:24:10.150
  • and the only way the devil
  • 00:24:10.150 --> 00:24:12.010
  • can get at you is outter lies.
  • 00:24:12.010 --> 00:24:13.170
  • This is why, Jesus, he didn't
  • 00:24:13.170 --> 00:24:14.080
  • go to the cross because he did
  • 00:24:14.080 --> 00:24:15.070
  • anything, he went to the cross
  • 00:24:15.070 --> 00:24:16.170
  • because they lied about him,
  • 00:24:16.170 --> 00:24:19.150
  • right?
  • 00:24:19.150 --> 00:24:20.200
  • He didn't do anything wrong.
  • 00:24:20.200 --> 00:24:21.290
  • In the same way, we see this
  • 00:24:21.290 --> 00:24:24.000
  • happening here, that basically
  • 00:24:24.000 --> 00:24:26.280
  • Joseph doesn't do anything
  • 00:24:26.280 --> 00:24:28.020
  • wrong, but yet he gets lied on,
  • 00:24:28.020 --> 00:24:29.130
  • he gets lied about,
  • 00:24:29.130 --> 00:24:30.040
  • now he ends up in prison.
  • 00:24:30.040 --> 00:24:31.060
  • This is really important to
  • 00:24:31.060 --> 00:24:31.270
  • understand this, though, okay.
  • 00:24:31.270 --> 00:24:32.210
  • Check this out.
  • 00:24:32.210 --> 00:24:34.180
  • He starts off way outside of
  • 00:24:34.180 --> 00:24:37.090
  • where Egypt is, the power center
  • 00:24:37.090 --> 00:24:39.100
  • where he's supposed to be
  • 00:24:39.100 --> 00:24:40.020
  • for his future.
  • 00:24:40.020 --> 00:24:41.090
  • Let's just say the other side of
  • 00:24:41.090 --> 00:24:42.130
  • the stage represents the palace.
  • 00:24:42.130 --> 00:24:44.070
  • He's here, he has a dream,
  • 00:24:44.070 --> 00:24:46.120
  • he wants to honor God,
  • 00:24:46.120 --> 00:24:47.100
  • he's betrayed, and they threw
  • 00:24:47.100 --> 00:24:49.080
  • him into slavery, now he ends up
  • 00:24:49.080 --> 00:24:50.260
  • in Egypt, in Potiphar's home.
  • 00:24:50.260 --> 00:24:52.290
  • This is horrible, it seems to
  • 00:24:52.290 --> 00:24:54.230
  • him from his perspective, but
  • 00:24:54.230 --> 00:24:56.000
  • what he doesn't realize is he's
  • 00:24:56.000 --> 00:24:57.000
  • closer than ever to his destiny.
  • 00:24:57.000 --> 00:24:59.020
  • He honors God, he does the right
  • 00:24:59.020 --> 00:25:00.290
  • thing, they lie about him,
  • 00:25:00.290 --> 00:25:02.210
  • now he's thrown into prison
  • 00:25:02.210 --> 00:25:04.080
  • right underneath the palace.
  • 00:25:04.080 --> 00:25:07.050
  • Now he is actually in the place
  • 00:25:07.050 --> 00:25:08.230
  • of his destiny, but
  • 00:25:08.230 --> 00:25:09.250
  • he's not in the right position.
  • 00:25:09.250 --> 00:25:11.050
  • You will always end up
  • 00:25:11.050 --> 00:25:12.080
  • in the wrong position
  • 00:25:12.080 --> 00:25:13.140
  • in the right place first.
  • 00:25:13.140 --> 00:25:14.280
  • If you will honor God in
  • 00:25:14.280 --> 00:25:15.250
  • the wrong position, he will then
  • 00:25:15.250 --> 00:25:17.200
  • give you the right position.
