  • When we believe this lie, we begin to try to fix
  • 00:00:09.240 --> 00:00:11.280
  • all that's wrong with us.
  • 00:00:11.290 --> 00:00:13.130
  • Join my Pastor Gregory Dickow as he ministers on this topic today
  • 00:00:13.140 --> 00:00:16.090
  • at Creflo and Taffi Dollar's Grace Life Conference
  • 00:00:16.100 --> 00:00:19.070
  • at World Changers Church in Atlanta.
  • 00:00:19.080 --> 00:00:21.000
  • Today really is your day to find out who you are in Christ.
  • 00:00:21.010 --> 00:00:23.160
  • 00:00:23.260 --> 00:00:33.260
  • 00:00:34.060 --> 00:00:44.060
  • Gregory Dickow: The soul is the most valuable part of you
  • 00:00:45.160 --> 00:00:50.020
  • because God could have, but for whatever reason didn't,
  • 00:00:50.030 --> 00:00:57.050
  • give us a new one.
  • 00:00:57.060 --> 00:01:02.290
  • We renew it.
  • 00:01:03.000 --> 00:01:05.150
  • He restores it.
  • 00:01:05.160 --> 00:01:08.130
  • He heals it.
  • 00:01:08.140 --> 00:01:10.190
  • He feeds it.
  • 00:01:10.200 --> 00:01:12.080
  • He fixes it.
  • 00:01:12.090 --> 00:01:14.100
  • But have you ever wondered, why didn't he give you a new soul?
  • 00:01:14.110 --> 00:01:18.090
  • I wondered that because mine was so screwed up I was like,
  • 00:01:18.100 --> 00:01:23.040
  • "God, wouldn't this have been so much easier,
  • 00:01:23.050 --> 00:01:25.120
  • just give me a new one."
  • 00:01:25.130 --> 00:01:27.060
  • But your soul, it's not just, it is the mind to think,
  • 00:01:27.070 --> 00:01:34.080
  • the heart to feel, and the will to choose.
  • 00:01:34.090 --> 00:01:37.190
  • That is your soul, the mind to think,
  • 00:01:37.200 --> 00:01:39.170
  • the heart to feel, the will to choose.
  • 00:01:39.180 --> 00:01:41.070
  • But if you think about those three things, what is that?
  • 00:01:41.080 --> 00:01:43.130
  • That's your personality.
  • 00:01:43.140 --> 00:01:47.110
  • That's your personhood.
  • 00:01:47.120 --> 00:01:50.050
  • That's your sense of humor.
  • 00:01:50.060 --> 00:01:53.010
  • It's your, your quirks, your, the fun things about you,
  • 00:01:53.020 --> 00:01:58.110
  • the interesting things you like and desire,
  • 00:01:58.120 --> 00:02:01.250
  • the things that you are a fan, the things you like to taste.
  • 00:02:01.260 --> 00:02:06.110
  • You know, you have certain tastes that have really not
  • 00:02:06.120 --> 00:02:10.100
  • related to your body.
  • 00:02:10.110 --> 00:02:11.200
  • They're related to your soul.
  • 00:02:11.210 --> 00:02:13.140
  • There's certain memories, there's certain things
  • 00:02:13.150 --> 00:02:15.170
  • that are so good.
  • 00:02:15.180 --> 00:02:17.150
  • Look, what I'm trying to say is, God thought your soul to be
  • 00:02:17.160 --> 00:02:22.200
  • so valuable that he made your spirit new.
  • 00:02:22.210 --> 00:02:25.260
  • Like you're dead spirit, we can get it disposed.
  • 00:02:25.270 --> 00:02:28.280
  • He could have raised it from the dead,
  • 00:02:28.290 --> 00:02:31.160
  • but he gave you a brand-new one.
  • 00:02:31.170 --> 00:02:34.100
  • Your body, you're gonna get a new one in heaven,
  • 00:02:34.110 --> 00:02:35.270
  • a glorified one in heaven, but your soul.
  • 00:02:35.280 --> 00:02:40.150
  • You know, from a grace perspective
  • 00:02:40.160 --> 00:02:43.280
  • when you think about the soul.
  • 00:02:43.290 --> 00:02:48.000
  • There's a scripture we used to threaten people with
  • 00:02:48.010 --> 00:02:50.030
  • to get them saved.
  • 00:02:50.040 --> 00:02:51.170
  • "What does it profit a man if he were to gain
  • 00:02:51.180 --> 00:02:54.090
  • the whole and forfeit his soul?"
  • 00:02:54.100 --> 00:03:03.040
  • But I found thought about that verse a little bit more and
  • 00:03:03.050 --> 00:03:06.020
  • a little bit longer and here's what I feel God revealed to me
  • 00:03:06.030 --> 00:03:11.000
  • about it and that is, you know why I said--this is how God
  • 00:03:11.010 --> 00:03:15.240
  • speaks to me, but said, "You know why I said what does it
  • 00:03:15.250 --> 00:03:19.210
  • profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?
  • 00:03:19.220 --> 00:03:22.160
  • It was to show you the inexpressible value of your
  • 00:03:22.170 --> 00:03:27.040
  • soul, that if you could gain the whole world,
  • 00:03:27.050 --> 00:03:31.180
  • your soul is still more valuable than the whole world."
  • 00:03:31.190 --> 00:03:37.070
  • Your soul is the most valuable thing in this earth.
  • 00:03:37.080 --> 00:03:40.130
  • Your soul is the most precious thing in this earth.
  • 00:03:40.140 --> 00:03:43.100
  • It is the very thing--like Jesus paid for your soul to be saved
  • 00:03:43.110 --> 00:03:49.180
  • so that it could be restored so that God can save the fragments
  • 00:03:49.190 --> 00:03:54.070
  • of it that were healthy, and the fragments of it that were you,
  • 00:03:54.080 --> 00:03:58.170
  • and the fragments of it that we're your fingerprints,
  • 00:03:58.180 --> 00:04:01.190
  • and the fragments of it that--you know,
  • 00:04:01.200 --> 00:04:03.180
  • when Jesus, you know, when he fed the multitudes and then he
  • 00:04:03.190 --> 00:04:06.040
  • said, when he collected the bread,
  • 00:04:06.050 --> 00:04:07.290
  • he said, save the fragments.
  • 00:04:08.000 --> 00:04:09.170
  • That's what he does, he saves the fragments
  • 00:04:09.180 --> 00:04:10.270
  • of our broken lives.
  • 00:04:10.280 --> 00:04:12.070
  • He saves the fragments of our broken pieces.
  • 00:04:12.080 --> 00:04:14.070
  • He saves the fragments of our broken soul and puts it back
  • 00:04:14.080 --> 00:04:17.110
  • together because then otherwise if he just gave everybody
  • 00:04:17.120 --> 00:04:20.190
  • a new spirit, and a new soul, and a glorified body,
  • 00:04:20.200 --> 00:04:22.270
  • we'd all be the same.
  • 00:04:22.280 --> 00:04:25.090
  • How screwed up would that be?
  • 00:04:25.100 --> 00:04:27.150
  • Like how terrible would that be if everybody
  • 00:04:27.160 --> 00:04:29.250
  • was the same personality, like The Stepford Wives,
  • 00:04:29.260 --> 00:04:32.290
  • everybody's the same.
  • 00:04:33.000 --> 00:04:34.230
  • Everybody acts the same, talks the same.
  • 00:04:34.240 --> 00:04:36.070
  • And we basically have tried to make Christians Stepford Wives,
  • 00:04:36.080 --> 00:04:42.250
  • that everybody speaks the same, and everybody has a little bit
  • 00:04:42.260 --> 00:04:45.250
  • of a British accent as they're quoting Peter
  • 00:04:45.260 --> 00:04:47.170
  • in the Book of Matthew.
  • 00:04:47.180 --> 00:04:50.030
  • "Oh, Lord, not I.
  • 00:04:50.040 --> 00:04:51.290
  • I would never deny thee."
  • 00:04:52.000 --> 00:04:54.120
  • You notice we always give Peter a British accent?
  • 00:04:54.130 --> 00:04:59.090
  • The guy's never been to England he's never been to London.
  • 00:04:59.100 --> 00:05:07.200
  • But the soul, it's so precious.
  • 00:05:07.210 --> 00:05:11.090
  • It wasn't, it wasn't redeemed.
  • 00:05:11.100 --> 00:05:15.110
  • To redeem something is to buy it back.
  • 00:05:15.120 --> 00:05:17.190
  • Your spirit, he recreated.
  • 00:05:17.200 --> 00:05:20.050
  • Your soul, he bought back.
  • 00:05:20.060 --> 00:05:23.190
  • It's so valuable.
  • 00:05:23.200 --> 00:05:26.050
  • It has so much worth and everything that Satan has done,
  • 00:05:26.060 --> 00:05:30.190
  • and there could be a million reasons why God did it this way,
  • 00:05:30.200 --> 00:05:35.110
  • or does it this way.
  • 00:05:35.120 --> 00:05:37.080
  • One of them is, I think, to go through a process of healing and
  • 00:05:37.090 --> 00:05:41.280
  • restoration really gives you an appreciation for how good
  • 00:05:41.290 --> 00:05:46.250
  • God is, and how good he's been to you.
  • 00:05:46.260 --> 00:05:50.190
  • And it gives you an appreciation for the redemptive quality of
  • 00:05:50.200 --> 00:05:56.220
  • Jesus, the redemptive character of God is that he wants to,
  • 00:05:56.230 --> 00:06:02.190
  • he wants to--he wants the good in you kept intact.
  • 00:06:02.200 --> 00:06:07.160
  • He doesn't want to erase your memories.
  • 00:06:07.170 --> 00:06:09.150
  • He doesn't want to, you know, start over with your soul.
  • 00:06:09.160 --> 00:06:12.210
  • I mean, it'd be hard enough to learn how to use a fork all over
  • 00:06:12.220 --> 00:06:15.240
  • again if you didn't have a-- if you had to have
  • 00:06:15.250 --> 00:06:17.270
  • a brand-new soul.
  • 00:06:17.280 --> 00:06:19.070
  • But the real reason is, is because he loves your soul.
  • 00:06:19.080 --> 00:06:25.000
  • He loves you.
  • 00:06:25.010 --> 00:06:27.080
  • He loves your soul.
  • 00:06:27.090 --> 00:06:29.140
  • He thinks it's the most precious thing.
  • 00:06:29.150 --> 00:06:31.080
  • He loves your personality.
  • 00:06:31.090 --> 00:06:33.050
  • It's warped, right?
  • 00:06:33.060 --> 00:06:38.180
  • It's fractured.
  • 00:06:38.190 --> 00:06:40.210
  • It's got--it's in pieces sometimes.
  • 00:06:40.220 --> 00:06:43.010
  • It's cracked sometimes, but he loves it and that's why
  • 00:06:43.020 --> 00:06:47.060
  • he heals it, he restores it, because he loves it.
  • 00:06:47.070 --> 00:06:51.140
  • He doesn't restore it 'cause it's,
  • 00:06:51.150 --> 00:06:53.130
  • "You're just so bad, I gotta restore you."
  • 00:06:53.140 --> 00:06:55.010
  • He restores it 'cause you're so great,
  • 00:06:55.020 --> 00:06:58.230
  • I want to restore you."
  • 00:06:58.240 --> 00:07:01.080
  • Not you're so bad, I want to restore you.
  • 00:07:01.090 --> 00:07:04.150
  • We have to learn something here, a difference,
  • 00:07:04.160 --> 00:07:08.000
  • we have to learn the difference between being unworthy
  • 00:07:08.010 --> 00:07:12.100
  • and being worthless.
  • 00:07:12.110 --> 00:07:15.180
  • These are two very important-- there's a huge distinction
  • 00:07:15.190 --> 00:07:19.100
  • between these two things is that, yes,
  • 00:07:19.110 --> 00:07:22.140
  • we're unworthy in our behavior, in our actions,
  • 00:07:22.150 --> 00:07:26.180
  • to ever pay for our sins, to ever earn God's love,
  • 00:07:26.190 --> 00:07:29.280
  • to ever deserve, to deserve what he what he gives us.
  • 00:07:29.290 --> 00:07:34.120
  • We're unworthy in the sense of being capable of earning
  • 00:07:34.130 --> 00:07:43.100
  • what he what he does for us and what he offers.
  • 00:07:43.110 --> 00:07:46.280
  • But we are of so much worth that he offers it to us.
  • 00:07:46.290 --> 00:07:52.280
  • He's not offering all of the things that he offers to us
  • 00:07:52.290 --> 00:07:56.190
  • 'cause we're worthless.
  • 00:07:56.200 --> 00:07:59.290
  • He didn't die for worthless people.
  • 00:08:00.020 --> 00:08:04.010
  • You think like Pastor Dollar is a really,
  • 00:08:04.020 --> 00:08:08.210
  • really good business, businessman.
  • 00:08:08.220 --> 00:08:10.200
  • And Paul and Andrew together, this guy is one
  • 00:08:10.210 --> 00:08:14.040
  • of the best businessman I've ever met.
  • 00:08:14.050 --> 00:08:16.090
  • And he would never take a bad deal.
  • 00:08:16.100 --> 00:08:20.080
  • So, you think that Jesus, you think that God would say,
  • 00:08:20.090 --> 00:08:25.040
  • "You know what?
  • 00:08:25.050 --> 00:08:26.200
  • I'm gonna give my Son for your worthless soul."
  • 00:08:26.210 --> 00:08:32.160
  • That is a bad deal, and God's not into bad deals.
  • 00:08:32.170 --> 00:08:40.000
  • If you truly understand your value,
  • 00:08:40.010 --> 00:08:41.230
  • you're gonna start living at the level of your value
  • 00:08:41.240 --> 00:08:45.010
  • and you're going to experience the life that is beyond
  • 00:08:45.020 --> 00:08:48.050
  • your wildest dreams.
  • 00:08:48.060 --> 00:08:49.290
  • Your worth, your value.
  • 00:08:50.000 --> 00:08:51.250
  • When you know how valuable you are, worry leaves.
  • 00:08:51.260 --> 00:08:55.150
  • When you know how valuable you are,
  • 00:08:55.160 --> 00:08:57.090
  • your worth, your self-worth produces your net worth.
  • 00:08:57.100 --> 00:09:00.020
  • When you know how valuable you are,
  • 00:09:00.030 --> 00:09:02.060
  • you stop being a victim of manipulation from anybody.
  • 00:09:02.070 --> 00:09:05.260
  • Nobody can manipulate somebody 'cause the only reason
  • 00:09:05.270 --> 00:09:08.040
  • we get--we allow people to manipulate us is because
  • 00:09:08.050 --> 00:09:10.260
  • we need their approval, we seek their approval,
  • 00:09:10.270 --> 00:09:13.000
  • we want their approval, we want to feel special
  • 00:09:13.010 --> 00:09:15.080
  • or important to them.
  • 00:09:15.090 --> 00:09:18.000
  • But when you understand your value,
  • 00:09:18.010 --> 00:09:20.180
  • you cease to be able to be manipulated in any way.
  • 00:09:20.190 --> 00:09:24.260
  • And nobody can ever take advantage of you
  • 00:09:24.270 --> 00:09:27.260
  • by your consent anyway.
  • 00:09:27.270 --> 00:09:30.260
  • And it's very powerfully liberating.
  • 00:09:30.270 --> 00:09:33.180
  • You start seeing yourself and you start seeing things
  • 00:09:33.190 --> 00:09:35.160
  • God's way when you understand your value,
  • 00:09:35.170 --> 00:09:38.000
  • the value of your soul.
  • 00:09:38.010 --> 00:09:39.120
  • Knowing that you are not redeemed,
  • 00:09:39.130 --> 00:09:40.220
  • as it says in 1 Peter chapter 1:18 and 19.
  • 00:09:40.230 --> 00:09:43.020
  • "You were not redeemed with perishable things like silver
  • 00:09:43.030 --> 00:09:45.140
  • or gold from your futile life, inherited from your forefathers,
  • 00:09:45.150 --> 00:09:48.180
  • but by the precious blood of the Lamb."
  • 00:09:48.190 --> 00:09:51.160
  • That's what you were redeemed with.
  • 00:09:51.170 --> 00:09:53.080
  • You didn't, listen, I used to think when Jesus,
  • 00:09:53.090 --> 00:09:57.020
  • by Jesus shedding his blood for us, it gives us value.
  • 00:09:57.030 --> 00:10:00.080
  • But the fact is, is by Jesus shedding his blood for us,
  • 00:10:00.090 --> 00:10:04.050
  • it reveals our value. It reveals our value.
  • 00:10:04.060 --> 00:10:10.000
  • It's designed.
  • 00:10:10.010 --> 00:10:11.230
  • The design of your soul makes it valuable.
  • 00:10:11.240 --> 00:10:16.020
  • You have been made like God.
  • 00:10:16.030 --> 00:10:19.290
  • You have been made in the image of God so you have been designed
  • 00:10:20.000 --> 00:10:23.060
  • like God, and that design makes you valuable.
  • 00:10:23.070 --> 00:10:30.110
  • You're not designed like a another animal.
  • 00:10:30.120 --> 00:10:33.080
  • You're not designed like any other creation.
  • 00:10:33.090 --> 00:10:36.200
  • You are designed in the image--nothing else is made
  • 00:10:36.210 --> 00:10:39.050
  • in the image of God.
  • 00:10:39.060 --> 00:10:40.150
  • Even angels are not made in the image of God.
  • 00:10:40.160 --> 00:10:42.100
  • Angels are powerful, angels are amazing,
  • 00:10:42.110 --> 00:10:44.160
  • but you're more valuable than angels.
  • 00:10:44.170 --> 00:10:47.080
  • Jesus didn't die for angels.
  • 00:10:47.090 --> 00:10:49.080
  • The fallen angels aren't getting the chance.
  • 00:10:49.090 --> 00:10:51.180
  • They're not getting a second chance.
  • 00:10:51.190 --> 00:10:53.030
  • They're not getting a chance to be born again.
  • 00:10:53.040 --> 00:10:54.220
  • They're not getting a chance to newness of life.
  • 00:10:54.230 --> 00:10:56.150
  • They're not getting a chance for the old things to pass away.
  • 00:10:56.160 --> 00:10:58.160
  • How many know Lucifer doesn't get a second chance?
  • 00:10:58.170 --> 00:11:00.240
  • He doesn't get it because his soul doesn't have the value
  • 00:11:00.250 --> 00:11:03.240
  • that yours does.
  • 00:11:03.250 --> 00:11:05.070
  • The angels don't have the value that people have.
  • 00:11:05.080 --> 00:11:07.090
  • God made people in his image and that design,
  • 00:11:07.100 --> 00:11:11.040
  • the design, the very essence of how you are designed,
  • 00:11:11.050 --> 00:11:14.080
  • declares your value.
  • 00:11:14.090 --> 00:11:16.250
  • Secondly, the designer makes your soul valuable.
  • 00:11:16.260 --> 00:11:21.010
  • The designer, God is the one that did it.
  • 00:11:21.020 --> 00:11:23.270
  • You weren't an accident.
  • 00:11:23.280 --> 00:11:26.070
  • I mean, I believe that most of us got here by accident,
  • 00:11:26.080 --> 00:11:29.200
  • but not, right?
  • 00:11:29.210 --> 00:11:33.000
  • I think I told you on Monday, none of us--
  • 00:11:33.010 --> 00:11:35.080
  • none of our parents were thinking that night about us.
  • 00:11:35.090 --> 00:11:43.290
  • Let that sink in for a minute.
  • 00:11:44.000 --> 00:11:48.100
  • No one's going, bomp, chicka, bomp,
  • 00:11:48.110 --> 00:11:49.270
  • bomp, can't wait till that kid comes in nine months.
  • 00:11:49.280 --> 00:11:55.190
  • They're just singing bomp, chicka, bomp, bomp.
  • 00:11:55.200 --> 00:12:01.120
  • But God, your designer knew you before
  • 00:12:01.130 --> 00:12:11.120
  • the backside of that Chevy, the restaurant bathroom.
  • 00:12:11.130 --> 00:12:21.070
  • I don't know where y'all were conceived, ask your parents.
  • 00:12:21.080 --> 00:12:30.130
  • But the designer of your soul is what makes you so valuable.
  • 00:12:30.140 --> 00:12:36.140
  • Thirdly, the durability of your soul.
  • 00:12:36.150 --> 00:12:40.180
  • My goodness, your soul will last forever.
  • 00:12:40.190 --> 00:12:44.260
  • It's durable in so many ways.
  • 00:12:44.270 --> 00:12:47.230
  • How many of us have been abused and yet,
  • 00:12:47.240 --> 00:12:51.250
  • we've recovered?
  • 00:12:51.260 --> 00:12:53.050
  • How many of us have been addicted,
  • 00:12:53.060 --> 00:12:54.230
  • and yet we've recovered?
  • 00:12:54.240 --> 00:12:56.030
  • How many of us have been forsaken,
  • 00:12:56.040 --> 00:12:58.000
  • and yet we've recovered?
  • 00:12:58.010 --> 00:12:59.100
  • How many of us have been mistreated,
  • 00:12:59.110 --> 00:13:00.220
  • and yet we've recovered?
  • 00:13:00.230 --> 00:13:02.020
  • How many of us have just been trashed,
  • 00:13:02.030 --> 00:13:04.200
  • and lied about, and mishandled, and unappreciated,
  • 00:13:04.210 --> 00:13:08.280
  • and not treated with the utmost respect or value,
  • 00:13:08.290 --> 00:13:12.030
  • and betrayed, and cheated on, and all of the things
  • 00:13:12.040 --> 00:13:16.250
  • that have happened in our lives, and yet your soul remains,
  • 00:13:16.260 --> 00:13:20.220
  • your soul continues to subject itself to the restoration
  • 00:13:20.230 --> 00:13:24.140
  • process of the love of God, and the Word of God,
  • 00:13:24.150 --> 00:13:27.000
  • and the grace of God that is healing you.
  • 00:13:27.010 --> 00:13:28.240
  • It's so durable.
  • 00:13:28.250 --> 00:13:32.040
  • It's going to last forever.
  • 00:13:32.050 --> 00:13:34.010
  • It will never be destroyed.
  • 00:13:34.020 --> 00:13:35.270
  • A soul will remain eternal, either in heaven or in hell.
  • 00:13:35.280 --> 00:13:40.060
  • And really, you think about it, every human soul has this value,
  • 00:13:40.070 --> 00:13:45.250
  • every human soul.
  • 00:13:45.260 --> 00:13:47.190
  • And this is what puts what Jesus did in proper perspective,
  • 00:13:47.200 --> 00:13:52.180
  • that he didn't just do it to try to,
  • 00:13:52.190 --> 00:13:55.030
  • well, I don't know, give this one last chance.
  • 00:13:55.040 --> 00:13:57.180
  • It was like these people, every one of the billions and billions
  • 00:13:57.190 --> 00:14:02.140
  • of people that have lived on this earth and that ever
  • 00:14:02.150 --> 00:14:04.280
  • will live on this earth are so valuable to him that nothing
  • 00:14:04.290 --> 00:14:09.160
  • would ever be enough.
  • 00:14:09.170 --> 00:14:11.150
  • And all the old covenant stuff, and all the shadows,
  • 00:14:11.160 --> 00:14:14.160
  • was to all point to the one most important thing that would ever
  • 00:14:14.170 --> 00:14:20.000
  • be known in your life and that is how about valuable you are
  • 00:14:20.010 --> 00:14:23.190
  • to God that he would go to such great lengths,
  • 00:14:23.200 --> 00:14:26.100
  • that he would go and do everything you've heard about
  • 00:14:26.110 --> 00:14:31.060
  • this week, to pay the ultimate price so that you could have
  • 00:14:31.070 --> 00:14:36.180
  • what he intended you to have.
  • 00:14:36.190 --> 00:14:38.160
  • Grace, the grace of God speaks to me of my value.
  • 00:14:38.170 --> 00:14:42.270
  • It should speak to you of your value.
  • 00:14:42.280 --> 00:14:44.240
  • It should speak to you of your worth,
  • 00:14:44.250 --> 00:14:46.190
  • the design of your soul, the designer of your soul,
  • 00:14:46.200 --> 00:14:49.210
  • the durability of your soul.
  • 00:14:49.220 --> 00:14:51.010
  • And fourthly, the demand for your soul is
  • 00:14:51.020 --> 00:14:56.190
  • what makes it valuable.
  • 00:14:56.200 --> 00:14:58.040
  • The demand for your soul.
  • 00:14:58.050 --> 00:14:59.240
  • You know that Satan demanded to sift Peter like wheat.
  • 00:14:59.250 --> 00:15:06.290
  • Satan wanted Peter's soul, Jesus wanted Peter's soul.
  • 00:15:07.000 --> 00:15:10.260
  • Jesus didn't look at him like you, you know,
  • 00:15:10.270 --> 00:15:13.020
  • "You sink, you walk on the water,
  • 00:15:13.030 --> 00:15:15.210
  • you sink, you failure.
  • 00:15:15.220 --> 00:15:17.010
  • You denied me three times. You cut people's ears off.
  • 00:15:17.020 --> 00:15:20.020
  • You got your own agenda."
  • 00:15:20.030 --> 00:15:22.020
  • He, God doesn't look at us like that.
  • 00:15:22.030 --> 00:15:25.140
  • He looks at us like, man, your soul is in high demand and God
  • 00:15:25.150 --> 00:15:31.040
  • is like, "I want it and I'll pay for it with the ultimate price.
  • 00:15:31.050 --> 00:15:36.080
  • And I will pay more than the devil ever thought.
  • 00:15:36.090 --> 00:15:38.110
  • I will pay more than he could ever afford.
  • 00:15:38.120 --> 00:15:40.050
  • I'll pay more than anybody could ever afford."
  • 00:15:40.060 --> 00:15:42.020
  • That's how valuable you are.
  • 00:15:42.030 --> 00:15:43.230
  • The demand, there's a demand on your soul.
  • 00:15:43.240 --> 00:15:46.060
  • You see, if you started thinking of yourself that way like whoa,
  • 00:15:46.070 --> 00:15:49.190
  • I'm in demand, rather than, "Ah, I wish somebody
  • 00:15:49.200 --> 00:15:53.180
  • loved me one day."
  • 00:15:53.190 --> 00:15:56.160
  • That's because of you, your belief has been,
  • 00:15:56.170 --> 00:16:00.140
  • has attached itself to a small value of yourself.
  • 00:16:00.150 --> 00:16:06.050
  • You're in high demand, people.
  • 00:16:06.060 --> 00:16:09.230
  • You guys that are watching, you're in high demand.
  • 00:16:09.240 --> 00:16:13.190
  • God wants you, the devil wants you.
  • 00:16:13.200 --> 00:16:16.260
  • Like, we should take it a compliment.
  • 00:16:16.270 --> 00:16:19.010
  • "Oh, Satan was lying to me the other day."
  • 00:16:19.020 --> 00:16:20.220
  • That's 'cause he wants you.
  • 00:16:20.230 --> 00:16:22.020
  • That's 'cause he sees how valuable you are,
  • 00:16:22.030 --> 00:16:24.130
  • that if he can get you to believe a lie,
  • 00:16:24.140 --> 00:16:26.250
  • he can dismantle or at least diminish your effectiveness
  • 00:16:26.260 --> 00:16:34.170
  • because your effectiveness flows from your sense of value.
  • 00:16:34.180 --> 00:16:41.050
  • And loving God flows from the sense that wow,
  • 00:16:41.060 --> 00:16:47.060
  • he thinks that about me?
  • 00:16:47.070 --> 00:16:50.150
  • He said in Psalm 40, "Your thoughts towards me are so
  • 00:16:50.160 --> 00:16:54.060
  • without number.
  • 00:16:54.070 --> 00:16:56.190
  • If I could count the sands of the seashore,
  • 00:16:56.200 --> 00:16:59.140
  • the stars of the sky, your thoughts towards me,
  • 00:16:59.150 --> 00:17:03.220
  • your good thoughts towards me would number them."
  • 00:17:03.230 --> 00:17:07.080
  • You hearing this?
  • 00:17:11.030 --> 00:17:12.120
  • God--look, I shared this verse with you years ago.
  • 00:17:12.130 --> 00:17:17.080
  • I'm gonna share it again, Revelation chapter 1, verse 5,
  • 00:17:17.090 --> 00:17:20.180
  • he says, "And from Jesus Christ,
  • 00:17:20.190 --> 00:17:23.290
  • the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead,
  • 00:17:24.000 --> 00:17:26.260
  • and the prince of the kings of the earth,
  • 00:17:26.270 --> 00:17:29.220
  • unto him that loved us, unto him that loved us and washed us from
  • 00:17:29.230 --> 00:17:35.200
  • our sins in his own blood," and verse 6,
  • 00:17:35.210 --> 00:17:38.120
  • "and made us kings and priests were seated with him."
  • 00:17:38.130 --> 00:17:42.220
  • Listen, the first thing in the order in which he tells you
  • 00:17:42.230 --> 00:17:48.190
  • what he thinks about you and what he would do for you is,
  • 00:17:48.200 --> 00:17:51.270
  • he loved you first.
  • 00:17:51.280 --> 00:17:54.070
  • First, he loves us.
  • 00:17:54.080 --> 00:17:56.010
  • We gotta get this, first he loves us,
  • 00:17:56.020 --> 00:17:58.240
  • then he washes us.
  • 00:17:58.250 --> 00:18:01.070
  • He washes us because he loves us.
  • 00:18:01.080 --> 00:18:03.140
  • He does not love you because you're washed.
  • 00:18:03.150 --> 00:18:06.200
  • He washes you because you're loved.
  • 00:18:06.210 --> 00:18:09.200
  • You love, you wash what you love,
  • 00:18:09.210 --> 00:18:11.260
  • you don't love what you wash, you wash what you love.
  • 00:18:11.270 --> 00:18:16.040
  • That's why when you have a car, when you get a brand-new car,
  • 00:18:16.050 --> 00:18:18.270
  • you love that brand-new car.
  • 00:18:18.280 --> 00:18:20.160
  • And so, you know what you do all the time?
  • 00:18:20.170 --> 00:18:21.290
  • You wash that car.
  • 00:18:22.000 --> 00:18:23.090
  • But you know what?
  • 00:18:23.100 --> 00:18:24.190
  • After a few months, you don't love that car as much anymore so
  • 00:18:24.200 --> 00:18:26.160
  • guess what you stop doing.
  • 00:18:26.170 --> 00:18:27.280
  • You stop washing that car as much after a little while.
  • 00:18:27.290 --> 00:18:30.170
  • Maybe for some it's a few months,
  • 00:18:30.180 --> 00:18:32.040
  • maybe for some it's a couple years,
  • 00:18:32.050 --> 00:18:33.170
  • but we stop washing what we don't love anymore.
  • 00:18:33.180 --> 00:18:36.200
  • "Oh, that's just my car."
  • 00:18:36.210 --> 00:18:38.010
  • That's why you throw wrappers, you know,
  • 00:18:38.020 --> 00:18:39.280
  • that's why you'll throw a, I don't know,
  • 00:18:39.290 --> 00:18:42.040
  • an Arby's beef wrapper in the back of that thing.
  • 00:18:42.050 --> 00:18:48.010
  • Guess what.
  • 00:18:48.020 --> 00:18:49.130
  • It's because you don't value it as much.
  • 00:18:49.140 --> 00:18:52.160
  • That's why you'll do junky things to your body or to your
  • 00:18:52.170 --> 00:18:55.250
  • mind, or in your relationships, because not because you're so
  • 00:18:55.260 --> 00:19:00.170
  • unholy but because you've lost your sense of value.
  • 00:19:00.180 --> 00:19:06.170
  • All these Scriptures talk about how valuable we are.
  • 00:19:06.180 --> 00:19:08.250
  • So he said he loved us and that's why he washed us.
  • 00:19:08.260 --> 00:19:13.290
  • That's why his blood was shed because of how much
  • 00:19:14.000 --> 00:19:16.180
  • he valued you.
  • 00:19:16.190 --> 00:19:18.270
  • And then he made you what he always intended you to be,
  • 00:19:18.280 --> 00:19:23.270
  • a king and a priest, seated with him,
  • 00:19:23.280 --> 00:19:27.200
  • seated with him, seated with him,
  • 00:19:27.210 --> 00:19:32.020
  • seated with him.
  • 00:19:32.030 --> 00:19:34.100
  • God has gone to great lengths to invest into your life.
  • 00:19:34.110 --> 00:19:37.270
  • He's gone to great lengths to rescue you,
  • 00:19:37.280 --> 00:19:40.220
  • to redeem you, to buy you back, why?
  • 00:19:40.230 --> 00:19:43.120
  • Yes, because he is love, but because also of how valuable
  • 00:19:43.130 --> 00:19:50.170
  • you are to him and how much worth you have to him.
  • 00:19:50.180 --> 00:20:00.180
  • When Adam and Eve sinned, it was for one reason,
  • 00:20:01.030 --> 00:20:07.080
  • they stopped believing in their worth and they believed
  • 00:20:07.090 --> 00:20:11.290
  • that they weren't as worthy.
  • 00:20:12.000 --> 00:20:14.270
  • They weren't-- not the right word,
  • 00:20:14.280 --> 00:20:17.020
  • but they didn't have as much worth without eating
  • 00:20:17.030 --> 00:20:19.220
  • from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
  • 00:20:19.230 --> 00:20:21.090
  • Without the tree of knowledge of good and evil,
  • 00:20:21.100 --> 00:20:22.250
  • they didn't have as much worth.
  • 00:20:22.260 --> 00:20:24.160
  • So, Satan's shamed them into eating from the tree
  • 00:20:24.170 --> 00:20:28.010
  • of knowledge of good and evil.
  • 00:20:28.020 --> 00:20:29.190
  • And the way that he did that, you see,
  • 00:20:29.200 --> 00:20:32.280
  • Adam and Eve didn't sin because they were a sinner.
  • 00:20:32.290 --> 00:20:36.130
  • We sinned because we were sinners.
  • 00:20:36.140 --> 00:20:39.020
  • Adam and Eve didn't sin because they were sinners.
  • 00:20:39.030 --> 00:20:41.240
  • They weren't sinners, they were made in the image of God.
  • 00:20:41.250 --> 00:20:47.030
  • They were perfect in all God's glory,
  • 00:20:47.040 --> 00:20:50.030
  • so why did they sin?
  • 00:20:50.040 --> 00:20:54.050
  • Because they were shamed into sinning.
  • 00:20:54.060 --> 00:20:58.130
  • "You're not as valuable as you would be if you ate from
  • 00:20:58.140 --> 00:21:03.070
  • that tree 'cause you'll have something you don't have
  • 00:21:03.080 --> 00:21:04.170
  • right now, the knowledge of good and evil."
  • 00:21:04.180 --> 00:21:08.090
  • He made them feel like there was something wrong with them.
  • 00:21:08.100 --> 00:21:12.220
  • There wasn't a thing wrong with them.
  • 00:21:12.230 --> 00:21:17.120
  • But Satan made them think, "There's something wrong with
  • 00:21:17.130 --> 00:21:21.120
  • you and you have to fix it," and this is how Satan operates
  • 00:21:21.130 --> 00:21:28.020
  • in our lives, or tries to operate, in our lives as well.
  • 00:21:28.030 --> 00:21:30.210
  • "There's something wrong with you,
  • 00:21:30.220 --> 00:21:32.190
  • and you have to fix it."
  • 00:21:32.200 --> 00:21:34.050
  • And so, every sin we commit is an effort to fix what we think
  • 00:21:34.060 --> 00:21:40.000
  • is wrong with us.
  • 00:21:40.010 --> 00:21:42.250
  • So, when you realize it's fixed, and when you realize your value,
  • 00:21:42.260 --> 00:21:46.240
  • when you realize you have it all,
  • 00:21:46.250 --> 00:21:49.000
  • when you realize Jesus did it all,
  • 00:21:49.010 --> 00:21:51.060
  • when you realize tetelestai, when you realize it is finished,
  • 00:21:51.070 --> 00:21:55.040
  • when you realize the price he paid was because of how
  • 00:21:55.050 --> 00:21:57.140
  • expensive you are, and how worth you are,
  • 00:21:57.150 --> 00:22:01.130
  • and how valuable you are, you'll never be shamed again
  • 00:22:01.140 --> 00:22:05.170
  • into trying to fix something that is broken when,
  • 00:22:05.180 --> 00:22:09.040
  • in fact, it's no longer broken, amen.
  • 00:22:09.050 --> 00:22:15.000
  • Gregory: Well, we're smack dab in the middle of this series
  • 00:22:19.230 --> 00:22:21.280
  • called, "Sit With Me".
  • 00:22:21.290 --> 00:22:23.280
  • You gotta get this whole series.
  • 00:22:23.290 --> 00:22:25.080
  • I want you to get the whole thing,
  • 00:22:25.090 --> 00:22:28.110
  • and my announcer will tell you more about that.
  • 00:22:28.120 --> 00:22:30.060
  • But the value of your soul, your true self,
  • 00:22:30.070 --> 00:22:33.170
  • is beyond anything you've ever imagined.
  • 00:22:33.180 --> 00:22:35.170
  • You are worth it all, that's why Jesus shed his blood
  • 00:22:35.180 --> 00:22:38.250
  • for you and me.
  • 00:22:38.260 --> 00:22:40.050
  • Remember, our soul is our mind to think,
  • 00:22:40.060 --> 00:22:42.160
  • our heart to feel, and our will to choose.
  • 00:22:42.170 --> 00:22:45.080
  • Our souls, our personality, God thinks your soul is amazing.
  • 00:22:45.090 --> 00:22:49.040
  • It's worth it all.
  • 00:22:49.050 --> 00:22:50.190
  • And as I shared today, there are four things that determine
  • 00:22:50.200 --> 00:22:52.280
  • the value of your soul, want to make sure you never forget them.
  • 00:22:52.290 --> 00:22:55.110
  • Remember, the design, you're made in God's image.
  • 00:22:55.120 --> 00:22:58.260
  • The designer, you're made by him.
  • 00:22:58.270 --> 00:23:01.240
  • The durability of your soul, your soul is gonna last forever.
  • 00:23:01.250 --> 00:23:05.090
  • No matter what you've been through, you can recover.
  • 00:23:05.100 --> 00:23:08.070
  • And the demand of your soul, the devil,
  • 00:23:08.080 --> 00:23:10.120
  • the enemy wants your soul, but God wants it more
  • 00:23:10.130 --> 00:23:12.150
  • and he paid the highest price and he always wins.
  • 00:23:12.160 --> 00:23:15.120
  • The enemy wants us to believe that we don't have value
  • 00:23:15.130 --> 00:23:17.290
  • and that our souls are worthless.
  • 00:23:18.000 --> 00:23:20.020
  • And when we believe this lie, we begin to try fix what's wrong
  • 00:23:20.030 --> 00:23:24.150
  • with us and we make decisions to try to make ourselves
  • 00:23:24.160 --> 00:23:27.250
  • feel valuable, but you already are valuable.
  • 00:23:27.260 --> 00:23:30.260
  • It's so important that you grasp your value.
  • 00:23:30.270 --> 00:23:33.000
  • That's what this teaching is all about,
  • 00:23:33.010 --> 00:23:34.180
  • then you'll never be shamed by the enemy ever again.
  • 00:23:34.190 --> 00:23:38.050
  • You're already valuable to God.
  • 00:23:38.060 --> 00:23:40.080
  • You get a hold of that, it fixes whatever's broken in your life.
  • 00:23:40.090 --> 00:23:43.290
  • That's why I want to get this revelation in front of you
  • 00:23:44.000 --> 00:23:46.080
  • all the time.
  • 00:23:46.090 --> 00:23:47.270
  • And I'll tell you more in a moment but before I do,
  • 00:23:47.280 --> 00:23:50.200
  • I want to finish today by telling you that we're
  • 00:23:50.210 --> 00:23:55.030
  • on a mission to reach 30 million souls and see
  • 00:23:55.040 --> 00:23:58.020
  • their lives transformed.
  • 00:23:58.030 --> 00:23:59.230
  • We need your help.
  • 00:23:59.240 --> 00:24:01.110
  • We're raising $50.000 so we can reach 30.000 people in Haiti.
  • 00:24:01.120 --> 00:24:04.170
  • We're sending several thousand of these solar-powered audio
  • 00:24:04.180 --> 00:24:08.220
  • Bibles to the nation of Haiti, and I'm believing God
  • 00:24:08.230 --> 00:24:12.060
  • that many of you will recognize the urgency of this need
  • 00:24:12.070 --> 00:24:14.210
  • to get the gospel out, people that can't read,
  • 00:24:14.220 --> 00:24:16.230
  • people that are blind.

  • With your special gift of $250 or more today,
  • 00:24:18.190 --> 00:24:22.170

  • Pick up the phone and call the number on your screen.
