  • 00:00:06.000 --> 00:00:06.010
  • So if you're rooted and planted in God's grace, his love,
  • 00:00:06.010 --> 00:00:07.180
  • and his righteousness, then you will bear those very fruits
  • 00:00:07.190 --> 00:00:10.120
  • in your life.
  • 00:00:10.130 --> 00:00:11.230
  • Join my pastor, Gregory Dickow, as he ministers on this topic
  • 00:00:11.240 --> 00:00:14.100
  • at Creflo and Taffi Dollar's Grace Life Conference at World
  • 00:00:14.110 --> 00:00:17.060
  • Changers Church in Atlanta.
  • 00:00:17.070 --> 00:00:18.190
  • Today really is your day to find out who you are in Christ.
  • 00:00:18.200 --> 00:00:22.240
  • 00:00:22.250 --> 00:00:32.220
  • 00:00:32.230 --> 00:00:38.220
  • CC BY ABERDEEN CAPTIONING 1-800-688-6621 WWW.ABERCAP.COM
  • 00:00:38.230 --> 00:00:43.120
  • Gregory Dickow: In Revelation chapter 1, verse 5, it says,
  • 00:00:43.130 --> 00:00:45.270
  • "From Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the first
  • 00:00:45.280 --> 00:00:48.020
  • begotten of the dead, the Prince of the Kings of the Earth.
  • 00:00:48.030 --> 00:00:50.280
  • Unto him that loved us."
  • 00:00:50.290 --> 00:00:53.270
  • So, he tells us three things in these verses, and it's
  • 00:00:53.280 --> 00:00:57.200
  • talking about three things about our lives.
  • 00:00:57.210 --> 00:01:00.140
  • Number one, he loves us.
  • 00:01:00.150 --> 00:01:03.060
  • That's how he feels. That's how he feels.
  • 00:01:03.070 --> 00:01:06.140
  • Yes, God feels.
  • 00:01:06.150 --> 00:01:08.120
  • Love is more than a feeling, but it includes a feeling.
  • 00:01:08.130 --> 00:01:11.230
  • God feels love for you.
  • 00:01:11.240 --> 00:01:13.260
  • God has affection for you.
  • 00:01:13.270 --> 00:01:15.220
  • God likes you.
  • 00:01:15.230 --> 00:01:17.020
  • God likes your personality.
  • 00:01:17.030 --> 00:01:18.180
  • God likes what he made when he made you.
  • 00:01:18.190 --> 00:01:20.250
  • God likes how you came out of the womb, except that,
  • 00:01:20.260 --> 00:01:23.250
  • you know, you were born in sin.
  • 00:01:23.260 --> 00:01:25.050
  • Other than the fact that you were born in sin and born as
  • 00:01:25.060 --> 00:01:28.050
  • a sinner, other than that, he loves everything about you.
  • 00:01:28.060 --> 00:01:31.170
  • But he dealt with the very thing that he can't love about you.
  • 00:01:31.180 --> 00:01:34.190
  • He can't love your sin.
  • 00:01:34.200 --> 00:01:36.010
  • He can't love the fact that you were born--
  • 00:01:36.020 --> 00:01:37.250
  • that we were born sinners.
  • 00:01:37.260 --> 00:01:39.260
  • He doesn't love that, but he loves everything about us other
  • 00:01:39.270 --> 00:01:42.080
  • than that, and so he deals with that.
  • 00:01:42.090 --> 00:01:44.100
  • But this is number one, and we've gotta get ahold
  • 00:01:44.110 --> 00:01:47.010
  • of this because the ministry of Jesus is-- once you're born
  • 00:01:47.020 --> 00:01:50.240
  • again, the ministry of Jesus is a ministry to your soul.
  • 00:01:50.250 --> 00:01:54.010
  • It's a ministry to your-- it's ministry to your soul.
  • 00:01:54.020 --> 00:01:57.030
  • Jesus came to preach the gospel.
  • 00:01:57.040 --> 00:01:58.230
  • First thing he said, Luke 4:19, he said, "The Spirit of the Lord
  • 00:01:58.240 --> 00:02:01.120
  • God is upon me, for he's anointed me to preach the gospel
  • 00:02:01.130 --> 00:02:04.060
  • to the poor."
  • 00:02:04.070 --> 00:02:05.160
  • So, the first thing Jesus came to do is preach
  • 00:02:05.170 --> 00:02:07.280
  • the gospel, right?
  • 00:02:07.290 --> 00:02:09.280
  • To bring the gospel.
  • 00:02:09.290 --> 00:02:11.090
  • To bring salvation.
  • 00:02:11.100 --> 00:02:12.220
  • To bring reconciliation between us and God.
  • 00:02:12.230 --> 00:02:16.050
  • To restore man to his original relationship with God that God
  • 00:02:16.060 --> 00:02:20.050
  • had intended and that God created when he created
  • 00:02:20.060 --> 00:02:23.120
  • Adam and Eve.
  • 00:02:23.130 --> 00:02:24.260
  • All right, so that's the first thing that he came to do
  • 00:02:24.270 --> 00:02:26.060
  • in Luke 4:19.
  • 00:02:26.070 --> 00:02:27.160
  • I'll come back to Revelation 1:5 in a minute, but that's
  • 00:02:27.170 --> 00:02:30.030
  • the first thing Jesus came to do in Luke 4:19.
  • 00:02:30.040 --> 00:02:33.230
  • And that's what he said, 4:18-19, and then he said
  • 00:02:33.240 --> 00:02:39.000
  • the second thing is to heal the brokenhearted.
  • 00:02:39.010 --> 00:02:43.270
  • To heal the brokenhearted.
  • 00:02:43.280 --> 00:02:45.270
  • And I think we miss this.
  • 00:02:45.280 --> 00:02:47.190
  • We miss this part in Luke 4:18.
  • 00:02:47.200 --> 00:02:50.170
  • Yes, the first thing he comes to do is preach the gospel,
  • 00:02:50.180 --> 00:02:53.250
  • but once you're born again, the very next thing that I
  • 00:02:53.260 --> 00:02:58.060
  • believe Jesus goes to work in our lives is healing our
  • 00:02:58.070 --> 00:03:02.160
  • hearts, healing our soul, restoring our soul.
  • 00:03:02.170 --> 00:03:07.110
  • The Scripture we know as little children that, "The Lord is my
  • 00:03:07.120 --> 00:03:11.050
  • Shepherd, I shall not want.
  • 00:03:11.060 --> 00:03:12.150
  • He makes me lie down in green pastures.
  • 00:03:12.160 --> 00:03:13.260
  • Leads me beside still waters.
  • 00:03:13.270 --> 00:03:15.060
  • Restores my soul."
  • 00:03:15.070 --> 00:03:16.170
  • So, the activity of God, the way that God operates in our lives
  • 00:03:16.180 --> 00:03:20.200
  • is through the soul.
  • 00:03:20.210 --> 00:03:22.000
  • First the spirit.
  • 00:03:22.010 --> 00:03:23.110
  • He makes us born again.
  • 00:03:23.120 --> 00:03:24.210
  • That's first and foremost.
  • 00:03:24.220 --> 00:03:26.060
  • Now you're born again, what do you do with the soul?
  • 00:03:26.070 --> 00:03:29.070
  • The mind to think, the heart to feel, and the will to choose.
  • 00:03:29.080 --> 00:03:33.110
  • We must bring this soul into the hands of Jesus and let
  • 00:03:33.120 --> 00:03:39.120
  • him heal it everywhere it's broken, fill it everywhere it's
  • 00:03:39.180 --> 00:03:43.110
  • empty, restore it everywhere that it's been damaged,
  • 00:03:43.120 --> 00:03:48.060
  • and restore the dreams that God created you to have,
  • 00:03:48.070 --> 00:03:54.070
  • because God created each of us to dream big dreams.
  • 00:03:55.100 --> 00:03:59.080
  • So, in Revelation chapter 1, verse 5, the first thing it says
  • 00:03:59.090 --> 00:04:03.110
  • that the firstborn from the dead does, or the description of him,
  • 00:04:03.120 --> 00:04:09.120
  • he was the firstborn from the dead,
  • 00:04:10.100 --> 00:04:12.110
  • but the description of Jesus here, who is the exact
  • 00:04:12.120 --> 00:04:16.020
  • representation of God, says, "Unto him that loved us."
  • 00:04:16.030 --> 00:04:21.220
  • And this is the center of God's grace.
  • 00:04:21.230 --> 00:04:25.270
  • I shared with you guys if you-- if anybody was here last year,
  • 00:04:25.280 --> 00:04:29.080
  • I shared with you the "why" of grace.
  • 00:04:29.090 --> 00:04:31.260
  • The "why" of grace.
  • 00:04:31.270 --> 00:04:33.070
  • If you don't understand the "why" of something, you sort
  • 00:04:33.080 --> 00:04:35.240
  • of lose its significance.
  • 00:04:35.250 --> 00:04:37.040
  • You sort of lose its importance.
  • 00:04:37.050 --> 00:04:38.210
  • Grace becomes a subject until you understand grace is--
  • 00:04:38.220 --> 00:04:42.100
  • just remains a subject until you understand the "why" behind it.
  • 00:04:42.110 --> 00:04:45.220
  • Like, why has God given us this grace?
  • 00:04:45.230 --> 00:04:48.170
  • It's because he loved us.
  • 00:04:48.180 --> 00:04:50.000
  • He loves us. He loves us.
  • 00:04:50.010 --> 00:04:53.080
  • Why does he wanna-- why does he want to save us?
  • 00:04:53.090 --> 00:04:56.010
  • Why does he wanna fill us?
  • 00:04:56.020 --> 00:04:57.220
  • Why does he want to give us all things pertaining to life
  • 00:04:57.230 --> 00:05:00.230
  • and godliness?
  • 00:05:00.240 --> 00:05:02.040
  • Why does he want to fulfill our dreams and have us fulfill his
  • 00:05:02.050 --> 00:05:05.100
  • destiny for our lives?
  • 00:05:05.110 --> 00:05:06.210
  • Because he loves us.
  • 00:05:06.220 --> 00:05:08.010
  • Why does he want to spend eternity with us?
  • 00:05:08.020 --> 00:05:10.100
  • Why is God obsessed with us?
  • 00:05:10.110 --> 00:05:13.280
  • He is obsessed with you.
  • 00:05:13.290 --> 00:05:15.250
  • He loves him some you.
  • 00:05:15.260 --> 00:05:17.170
  • You understand what I'm sayin'?
  • 00:05:17.180 --> 00:05:20.170
  • He's obsessed with you, and he's obsessed with me.
  • 00:05:20.180 --> 00:05:24.080
  • If you've ever known anybody who gets obsessed with somebody, it
  • 00:05:24.090 --> 00:05:27.220
  • can become unhealthy and it can become weird, but not with God.
  • 00:05:27.230 --> 00:05:32.100
  • He's so obsessed with us, but he did something about it.
  • 00:05:32.110 --> 00:05:35.220
  • God loved us so much, and this is the "why" of grace.
  • 00:05:35.230 --> 00:05:41.070
  • So, because of love, "Unto him that loved us," because of how
  • 00:05:41.080 --> 00:05:46.030
  • he feels about us and because of his nature, which is love.
  • 00:05:46.040 --> 00:05:50.070
  • God is love.
  • 00:05:50.080 --> 00:05:52.060
  • Because of his nature and because of how he feels,
  • 00:05:52.070 --> 00:05:54.130
  • and he feels this way for us because that's his nature.
  • 00:05:54.140 --> 00:05:58.220
  • But he feels this way for us because you're made
  • 00:05:58.230 --> 00:06:01.270
  • in his image.
  • 00:06:01.280 --> 00:06:03.080
  • God loves what he makes.
  • 00:06:03.090 --> 00:06:04.180
  • Have you ever made something?
  • 00:06:04.190 --> 00:06:05.290
  • When a little kid makes something in school,
  • 00:06:06.000 --> 00:06:08.200
  • a kindergartener, and they make something really ugly,
  • 00:06:08.210 --> 00:06:12.040
  • you know, out of-- right?
  • 00:06:12.050 --> 00:06:13.150
  • Out of clay or out of papier-mache, or they
  • 00:06:13.160 --> 00:06:16.170
  • make something really ugly out of Play-Doh, or they make
  • 00:06:16.180 --> 00:06:19.180
  • something really ugly, and yet they love it, why?
  • 00:06:19.190 --> 00:06:23.090
  • 'Cause they made it.
  • 00:06:23.100 --> 00:06:26.170
  • You love what you make, until you get older and realize
  • 00:06:26.180 --> 00:06:30.130
  • that is so ugly.
  • 00:06:30.140 --> 00:06:33.150
  • But when you first make it, you're like, "Man,
  • 00:06:33.160 --> 00:06:35.080
  • I love what I just made."
  • 00:06:35.090 --> 00:06:37.180
  • You can't-- you don't think-- you don't think critically when
  • 00:06:37.190 --> 00:06:40.280
  • you're a little kid.
  • 00:06:40.290 --> 00:06:42.080
  • You just think about what you created.
  • 00:06:42.090 --> 00:06:44.150
  • And you have this God nature, this God-like aspect to love
  • 00:06:44.160 --> 00:06:50.160
  • what you created, because God loves what he created.
  • 00:06:51.120 --> 00:06:55.170
  • God loves what he created.
  • 00:06:55.180 --> 00:06:58.170
  • He created you.
  • 00:06:58.180 --> 00:07:00.220
  • I mean, he's madly in love with you.
  • 00:07:00.230 --> 00:07:02.080
  • He's obsessed with you.
  • 00:07:02.090 --> 00:07:04.020
  • And that's why when a parent-- when a kid brings that to their
  • 00:07:04.030 --> 00:07:07.000
  • parent, the parent intellectually knows that is
  • 00:07:07.010 --> 00:07:09.240
  • the ugliest thing I've seen since I was a kid, right?
  • 00:07:09.250 --> 00:07:14.120
  • I mean, the parent-- the parent instinctively--
  • 00:07:14.130 --> 00:07:16.240
  • the parent intellectually knows that,
  • 00:07:16.250 --> 00:07:18.140
  • but what does the parent say?
  • 00:07:18.150 --> 00:07:19.290
  • A good parent, a halfway decent parent, would even say this,
  • 00:07:20.000 --> 00:07:25.010
  • "That's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen."
  • 00:07:25.020 --> 00:07:29.230
  • Because the parent is articulating the value that that
  • 00:07:29.240 --> 00:07:34.190
  • has to the child, and the parent is really expressing it's
  • 00:07:34.200 --> 00:07:40.150
  • beautiful because the child made, it and the child made
  • 00:07:40.160 --> 00:07:44.120
  • something, and to that child, that thing is beautiful 'cause
  • 00:07:44.130 --> 00:07:48.060
  • it's that child's creation.
  • 00:07:48.070 --> 00:07:49.270
  • I say all that just to make this point of how valued you are
  • 00:07:49.280 --> 00:07:56.000
  • and how loved you are, that you're his creation and he loves
  • 00:07:56.010 --> 00:07:59.290
  • what he created.
  • 00:08:00.020 --> 00:08:01.110
  • So, the first thing here is he loved us.
  • 00:08:01.120 --> 00:08:04.000
  • That's how he feels.
  • 00:08:04.010 --> 00:08:06.220
  • Then it says, "And he washed us from our sins in his own blood."
  • 00:08:06.230 --> 00:08:10.010
  • That's what he did for us.
  • 00:08:10.020 --> 00:08:11.290
  • Loving us is how he feels about us, washing us in his own
  • 00:08:12.000 --> 00:08:16.060
  • blood is what he did for us, and then the next thing is, it
  • 00:08:16.070 --> 00:08:20.000
  • says, "And he made us kings and priests unto God
  • 00:08:20.010 --> 00:08:24.160
  • and his Father."
  • 00:08:24.170 --> 00:08:26.170
  • That's what he made us.
  • 00:08:26.180 --> 00:08:28.010
  • So, how he feels about us, what he did for us,
  • 00:08:28.020 --> 00:08:33.210
  • and what he made us.
  • 00:08:33.220 --> 00:08:36.010
  • These three things are what heal the human soul.
  • 00:08:36.020 --> 00:08:40.010
  • These three things are what elevate your sense of value.
  • 00:08:40.020 --> 00:08:44.060
  • They're what elevate your sense of worth.
  • 00:08:44.070 --> 00:08:46.130
  • They're what elevate your sense of understanding how significant
  • 00:08:46.140 --> 00:08:51.200
  • you are to God.
  • 00:08:51.210 --> 00:08:53.040
  • Because religion has beaten significance out of people.
  • 00:08:53.050 --> 00:08:58.250
  • Religion beats individuality out of people.
  • 00:08:58.260 --> 00:09:02.180
  • Religion beats significance out.
  • 00:09:02.190 --> 00:09:04.110
  • Religion beats self-esteem out.
  • 00:09:04.120 --> 00:09:06.090
  • Religion says, "If you have self-esteem, you're
  • 00:09:06.100 --> 00:09:09.180
  • self-centered.
  • 00:09:09.190 --> 00:09:10.290
  • That's worldly."
  • 00:09:11.000 --> 00:09:12.090
  • Self esteem is not worldly.
  • 00:09:12.100 --> 00:09:13.200
  • It's not self-centered.
  • 00:09:13.210 --> 00:09:15.000
  • It's what every child needs.
  • 00:09:15.010 --> 00:09:16.110
  • No child needs to feel like they're insignificant,
  • 00:09:16.120 --> 00:09:18.200
  • and nor does any adult feel like that--
  • 00:09:18.210 --> 00:09:21.130
  • need to feel like that.
  • 00:09:21.140 --> 00:09:22.240
  • Many-- now, you can take that to an extreme and you can become
  • 00:09:22.250 --> 00:09:26.100
  • self-centered, but really, if I can just put it to you this way,
  • 00:09:26.110 --> 00:09:30.250
  • the people in this world that are self-centered are not
  • 00:09:30.260 --> 00:09:33.070
  • the people that value themselves.
  • 00:09:33.080 --> 00:09:35.010
  • The people in this world that are self-centered--
  • 00:09:35.020 --> 00:09:37.030
  • self-centeredness is the result of not valuing yourself, not
  • 00:09:37.040 --> 00:09:40.280
  • understanding your true worth.
  • 00:09:40.290 --> 00:09:42.090
  • Because then what happens is because you don't understand
  • 00:09:42.100 --> 00:09:45.010
  • your true worth and your true sense of value,
  • 00:09:45.020 --> 00:09:48.280
  • you seek it continually.
  • 00:09:48.290 --> 00:09:50.090
  • And that's what makes you do self-centered things, because
  • 00:09:50.100 --> 00:09:53.060
  • you're self-absorbed with obtaining something that
  • 00:09:53.070 --> 00:09:56.150
  • God has already given you but you don't realize you have,
  • 00:09:56.160 --> 00:09:59.110
  • and so you need everybody's affirmation.
  • 00:09:59.120 --> 00:10:01.210
  • You need people's approval.
  • 00:10:01.220 --> 00:10:03.050
  • You need to feel important.
  • 00:10:03.060 --> 00:10:04.170
  • You need to feel-- you need other people to make you feel.
  • 00:10:04.180 --> 00:10:07.060
  • Everybody who's self-centered is seeking after a feeling
  • 00:10:07.070 --> 00:10:11.130
  • of something that God already has towards them.
  • 00:10:11.140 --> 00:10:15.110
  • My God!
  • 00:10:15.120 --> 00:10:16.210
  • And if we would get ahold of that and we would derive it
  • 00:10:16.220 --> 00:10:19.000
  • from God and derive it from grace, the grace of God is
  • 00:10:19.010 --> 00:10:23.180
  • the very validation of your value.
  • 00:10:23.190 --> 00:10:27.220
  • The grace of God is the proof of your worth, that God would
  • 00:10:27.230 --> 00:10:31.220
  • not go to such great extremes to send his own Son to die
  • 00:10:31.230 --> 00:10:35.030
  • for us and give us fullness of grace and truth, and sent his
  • 00:10:35.040 --> 00:10:38.100
  • Son into a fallen world if he didn't value us.
  • 00:10:38.110 --> 00:10:41.160
  • His grace is the validation of your worth.
  • 00:10:41.170 --> 00:10:44.270
  • It's the validation of your significance.
  • 00:10:44.280 --> 00:10:46.290
  • It's the validation of your value.
  • 00:10:47.000 --> 00:10:49.000
  • And every other way of getting significance, and worth,
  • 00:10:49.010 --> 00:10:52.110
  • and value, every other way is self-centered.
  • 00:10:52.120 --> 00:10:54.290
  • Every other way is selfish.
  • 00:10:55.000 --> 00:10:56.230
  • Every other way does lead to sin.
  • 00:10:56.240 --> 00:10:58.230
  • But when you get your value from your Heavenly Father
  • 00:10:58.240 --> 00:11:03.240
  • and realize how much worth you have and significance you have
  • 00:11:03.250 --> 00:11:07.160
  • to him that he would send us his grace, then what it does is it
  • 00:11:07.170 --> 00:11:11.220
  • elevates your view of your true self.
  • 00:11:11.230 --> 00:11:15.160
  • Not your ego and your self-centeredness, but your--
  • 00:11:15.170 --> 00:11:19.260
  • but the true value of your soul, the human mind, the human heart,
  • 00:11:19.270 --> 00:11:25.020
  • the human will.
  • 00:11:25.030 --> 00:11:26.250
  • And that is where God's activity is.
  • 00:11:26.260 --> 00:11:29.200
  • That's where-- that's what's being renewed when
  • 00:11:29.210 --> 00:11:32.070
  • we renew our mind.
  • 00:11:32.080 --> 00:11:34.070
  • That's what's being transformed when we renew our mind.
  • 00:11:34.080 --> 00:11:36.100
  • If you don't get this, you miss it all.
  • 00:11:36.110 --> 00:11:38.220
  • You miss-- you misunderstand so much that--
  • 00:11:38.230 --> 00:11:43.200
  • how he feels towards you.
  • 00:11:43.210 --> 00:11:45.010
  • How does he feel towards you?
  • 00:11:45.020 --> 00:11:47.190
  • Love.
  • 00:11:47.200 --> 00:11:48.290
  • What is he-- and what he's done for us.
  • 00:11:49.000 --> 00:11:51.000
  • What did he do for us?
  • 00:11:51.010 --> 00:11:52.230
  • Washed us in his own blood.
  • 00:11:52.240 --> 00:11:54.140
  • That's where the grace manifests.
  • 00:11:54.150 --> 00:11:57.210
  • God-- the grace doesn't show up because he loves us.
  • 00:11:57.220 --> 00:12:01.040
  • That's the reason, but it doesn't show up until he--
  • 00:12:01.050 --> 00:12:05.280
  • his blood is shed, right?
  • 00:12:05.290 --> 00:12:09.090
  • That's when it happens.
  • 00:12:09.100 --> 00:12:11.180
  • And then what he makes us, kings and priests, elevates our view.
  • 00:12:11.190 --> 00:12:17.190
  • But we understand why.
  • 00:12:17.280 --> 00:12:19.140
  • Because he loves us, he washed us, and because he washed us,
  • 00:12:19.150 --> 00:12:24.260
  • he made us something.
  • 00:12:24.270 --> 00:12:26.160
  • And when you understand this, when you understand you have--
  • 00:12:26.170 --> 00:12:30.220
  • you have this seat at God's table, you have a seat
  • 00:12:30.230 --> 00:12:36.220
  • at Jesus's table, seated with him.
  • 00:12:38.120 --> 00:12:44.120
  • I think we have in the Bible only one time Jesus ever stood
  • 00:12:45.040 --> 00:12:50.040
  • after his resurrection.
  • 00:12:50.050 --> 00:12:51.190
  • The Bible says he was seated at the right hand of the Father
  • 00:12:51.200 --> 00:12:54.230
  • after his ascension.
  • 00:12:54.240 --> 00:12:56.030
  • Seated at the right hand of the Father,
  • 00:12:56.040 --> 00:12:57.130
  • and is seated today.
  • 00:12:57.140 --> 00:12:59.230
  • But we have one record in Scripture where Jesus stood
  • 00:12:59.240 --> 00:13:02.250
  • up, and remember when it was?
  • 00:13:02.260 --> 00:13:04.150
  • When Stephen was stoned in Acts chapter 7.
  • 00:13:04.160 --> 00:13:08.260
  • Stephen is stoned to death.
  • 00:13:08.270 --> 00:13:11.200
  • And 6 or 7, I think it's 7, as Stephen is stoned to death,
  • 00:13:11.210 --> 00:13:16.130
  • as he's dying, he looks up, and the Bible says, he said,
  • 00:13:16.140 --> 00:13:22.140
  • "I see the Son of God.
  • 00:13:23.040 --> 00:13:25.140
  • I see God and I see the Son of God standing at the right
  • 00:13:25.150 --> 00:13:29.100
  • hand of the Father."
  • 00:13:29.110 --> 00:13:32.060
  • He was standing at the right hand of the Father.
  • 00:13:32.070 --> 00:13:35.260
  • And you know what he was standing for, I believe?
  • 00:13:35.270 --> 00:13:37.280
  • He was standing up to welcome Stephen with him at the right
  • 00:13:37.290 --> 00:13:43.280
  • hand of the Father.
  • 00:13:44.290 --> 00:13:48.030
  • Let me tell you something about where we're goin',
  • 00:13:48.040 --> 00:13:52.240
  • you know, in the last, you know, portion here.
  • 00:13:52.250 --> 00:13:54.260
  • Where we're goin' with this is that-- is that there are gaps
  • 00:13:54.270 --> 00:14:00.280
  • in our soul that God's grace fills.
  • 00:14:01.080 --> 00:14:06.140
  • And it's the gaps in our soul that cause us to crave
  • 00:14:06.150 --> 00:14:12.150
  • the things that we crave, to lust after the things we lust
  • 00:14:14.000 --> 00:14:18.000
  • after, to the bad things anyway, 'cause lust in and of itself
  • 00:14:18.010 --> 00:14:22.080
  • is not a bad thing.
  • 00:14:22.090 --> 00:14:23.180
  • It's what you're-- strong desire is what the word literally
  • 00:14:23.190 --> 00:14:25.170
  • means, so you can have a strong desire for God.
  • 00:14:25.180 --> 00:14:28.080
  • You can have a strong desire to win souls.
  • 00:14:28.090 --> 00:14:30.020
  • You can have a strong desire to succeed for God's glory.
  • 00:14:30.030 --> 00:14:32.230
  • There's nothing wrong with that, but when you desire the wrong
  • 00:14:32.240 --> 00:14:36.220
  • things, that's what I'm talkin' about.
  • 00:14:36.230 --> 00:14:39.280
  • And those things happen in a broken soul.
  • 00:14:39.290 --> 00:14:44.070
  • Those things happen in a damaged soul.
  • 00:14:44.080 --> 00:14:46.130
  • And if I can put it to you this way, because when I realized,
  • 00:14:46.140 --> 00:14:52.130
  • as I started my story a couple of days ago or whenever it was,
  • 00:14:56.050 --> 00:15:00.080
  • in my early Christian years, I was fighting for a seat
  • 00:15:00.090 --> 00:15:03.010
  • at the table, so to speak.
  • 00:15:03.020 --> 00:15:04.240
  • I wanted to be with famous ministers and the preachers.
  • 00:15:04.250 --> 00:15:08.250
  • And I was saved, but I was just--
  • 00:15:08.260 --> 00:15:12.100
  • I just didn't understand my identity.
  • 00:15:12.110 --> 00:15:14.210
  • I didn't understand who am I in Christ as a son of God.
  • 00:15:14.220 --> 00:15:18.040
  • I felt like I was trying to aspire to sonship and aspire
  • 00:15:18.050 --> 00:15:24.050
  • to the seat-- to a seat at the table, when just merely
  • 00:15:24.110 --> 00:15:28.050
  • being born again gave me a seat at the table.
  • 00:15:28.060 --> 00:15:31.020
  • He loved me, he washed me, and he made me a king
  • 00:15:31.030 --> 00:15:33.150
  • and a priest.
  • 00:15:33.160 --> 00:15:34.250
  • I had a seat at the table, therefore.
  • 00:15:34.260 --> 00:15:36.060
  • I just didn't know it.
  • 00:15:36.070 --> 00:15:37.160
  • So, everything I did was try to prove my worth, try to prove
  • 00:15:37.170 --> 00:15:40.140
  • my value, try to prove that I could earn a seat with my
  • 00:15:40.150 --> 00:15:44.140
  • behavior, with my holiness, with my preaching, with my
  • 00:15:44.150 --> 00:15:48.160
  • evangelism, or with going out and winning souls, so that I
  • 00:15:48.170 --> 00:15:52.060
  • could feel like I was earning my seat at the table.
  • 00:15:52.070 --> 00:15:56.210
  • And what I-- and what I think I've tried to get through to you
  • 00:15:56.220 --> 00:16:00.250
  • over the last few days is that seat has been given the moment
  • 00:16:00.260 --> 00:16:05.070
  • you got born again.
  • 00:16:05.080 --> 00:16:06.220
  • You not only died with him, you were raised up with him,
  • 00:16:06.230 --> 00:16:11.220
  • and you have been seated with him in heavenly places.
  • 00:16:11.230 --> 00:16:15.030
  • And we need to understand that and take our seat.
  • 00:16:15.040 --> 00:16:18.080
  • Take our seat and not let anybody talk us out of our seat.
  • 00:16:18.090 --> 00:16:21.250
  • Oh, you've been bad.
  • 00:16:21.260 --> 00:16:23.050
  • You've been bad, so go in the corner and wear
  • 00:16:23.060 --> 00:16:25.100
  • the dunce cap.
  • 00:16:25.110 --> 00:16:26.200
  • You've been bad, and go sit in the time out chair.
  • 00:16:26.210 --> 00:16:28.010
  • You've been bad, and so you lost your seat.
  • 00:16:28.020 --> 00:16:29.290
  • You don't ever lose your seat at the table.
  • 00:16:30.000 --> 00:16:33.150
  • You don't ever lose it.
  • 00:16:33.160 --> 00:16:35.170
  • Now, we lose our appreciation for it.
  • 00:16:35.180 --> 00:16:39.050
  • We lose our understanding of it if we don't acquaint
  • 00:16:39.060 --> 00:16:44.180
  • ourselves with what it means to have a seat
  • 00:16:44.190 --> 00:16:48.020
  • at the table.
  • 00:16:48.030 --> 00:16:49.130
  • But look, I realized when I knew, "Oh, man,
  • 00:16:49.140 --> 00:16:55.210
  • I have a seat at the table."
  • 00:16:55.220 --> 00:16:58.020
  • Not because I've been a Christian long enough, not
  • 00:16:58.030 --> 00:17:01.070
  • because I gave enough, not because I was faithful enough,
  • 00:17:01.080 --> 00:17:06.100
  • but because Ephesians 2:6.
  • 00:17:06.110 --> 00:17:08.280
  • This is why, because as a result of being born again, the Bible
  • 00:17:08.290 --> 00:17:13.210
  • says, "And has raised us up together, and made us sit
  • 00:17:13.220 --> 00:17:19.220
  • together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus."
  • 00:17:20.160 --> 00:17:24.120
  • Let's keep goin' for a minute and then I'll back up.
  • 00:17:24.130 --> 00:17:26.120
  • "That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches
  • 00:17:26.130 --> 00:17:28.270
  • of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus."
  • 00:17:28.280 --> 00:17:34.150
  • Verse 8, "For by grace are you saved through faith, and that
  • 00:17:34.160 --> 00:17:40.150
  • not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.
  • 00:17:41.210 --> 00:17:45.220
  • Not a result of works," verse 9, "lest anyone should boast."
  • 00:17:45.230 --> 00:17:49.280
  • Verse 10, "For we are his workmanship."
  • 00:17:49.290 --> 00:17:53.190
  • That should tell you about your value.
  • 00:17:53.200 --> 00:17:56.170
  • We're his workmanship.
  • 00:17:56.180 --> 00:17:58.290
  • You know, if you ever go to Florence, Italy, that is
  • 00:17:59.000 --> 00:18:04.000
  • where the greatest work of art in my opinion is-- resides.
  • 00:18:04.010 --> 00:18:08.210
  • The greatest work of art is Michelangelo's statue of David,
  • 00:18:08.220 --> 00:18:12.130
  • in my opinion, besides God's work of art in mankind.
  • 00:18:12.140 --> 00:18:17.080
  • When it comes to art, they say when you go to the museum that
  • 00:18:17.090 --> 00:18:21.250
  • the statue of David is in, they say that once you see that
  • 00:18:21.260 --> 00:18:27.250
  • statue, you are ruined to be interested in anything else.
  • 00:18:28.180 --> 00:18:34.170
  • I mean, there's millions and millions of dollars worth
  • 00:18:35.150 --> 00:18:38.290
  • of other art in the same museum, and billions of dollars worth
  • 00:18:39.000 --> 00:18:44.170
  • of art in that city, and in Italy, and in some
  • 00:18:44.180 --> 00:18:48.250
  • of those other areas.
  • 00:18:48.260 --> 00:18:50.060
  • But I mean, when you see the statue of David you,
  • 00:18:50.070 --> 00:18:54.010
  • are in awe.
  • 00:18:54.020 --> 00:18:55.110
  • And I've seen it, and it's amazing, and I would go back
  • 00:18:55.120 --> 00:18:58.150
  • there just to see it.
  • 00:18:58.160 --> 00:18:59.250
  • It is so perfect from a work of art standpoint, but here's
  • 00:18:59.260 --> 00:19:05.270
  • the thing about Michelangelo.
  • 00:19:05.280 --> 00:19:07.080
  • When he carved the statue of David, he never said,
  • 00:19:07.090 --> 00:19:12.280
  • "You know what?
  • 00:19:12.290 --> 00:19:14.090
  • I think I'll-- I think I'll make a statue of David."
  • 00:19:14.100 --> 00:19:18.090
  • They say and he says that the piece of marble was thrown
  • 00:19:18.100 --> 00:19:23.120
  • out that it was made of.
  • 00:19:23.130 --> 00:19:25.190
  • The piece of marble that eventually became the statue
  • 00:19:25.200 --> 00:19:28.100
  • of David was thrown out, and every other artist that was
  • 00:19:28.110 --> 00:19:32.090
  • asked to do something with it said, "There's--
  • 00:19:32.100 --> 00:19:35.120
  • this is a broken, ruined piece of marble.
  • 00:19:35.130 --> 00:19:38.050
  • There's nothing that can be done with this."
  • 00:19:38.060 --> 00:19:40.050
  • When Michelangelo saw it, he claims he saw David immediately
  • 00:19:40.060 --> 00:19:46.060
  • in the marble, and all he did was carve away at the marble.
  • 00:19:48.180 --> 00:19:54.180
  • You got it, brother.
  • 00:19:56.290 --> 00:19:58.170
  • I guess I don't work alone.
  • 00:19:58.180 --> 00:19:59.290
  • To reveal--
  • 00:20:00.000 --> 00:20:02.000
  • All he did was carve away at the marble to reveal
  • 00:20:07.190 --> 00:20:12.280
  • David inside that marble.
  • 00:20:12.290 --> 00:20:17.010
  • And that's what it means when it says we are his workmanship.
  • 00:20:17.020 --> 00:20:22.270
  • The moment you're born again, we're his masterpiece.
  • 00:20:22.280 --> 00:20:26.020
  • The moment you're born again, he begins to carve away wrong
  • 00:20:26.030 --> 00:20:31.080
  • thinking and all the wrong beliefs that are hiding the true
  • 00:20:31.090 --> 00:20:36.190
  • you inside of you, the real you.
  • 00:20:36.200 --> 00:20:42.190
  • God ordained it before, and that real you is do it gonna do
  • 00:20:43.120 --> 00:20:47.040
  • amazing works, good works.
  • 00:20:47.050 --> 00:20:48.230
  • That real you is destined by God and created, ordained
  • 00:20:48.240 --> 00:20:53.220
  • before that you even walked in them, God saw it in you.
  • 00:20:53.230 --> 00:20:59.050
  • Just like before David came out of that marble, Michelangelo
  • 00:20:59.060 --> 00:21:04.110
  • saw David in there.
  • 00:21:04.120 --> 00:21:07.070
  • God sees it all in you.
  • 00:21:07.080 --> 00:21:09.220
  • The value, the greatness, your personality, the gifts,
  • 00:21:09.230 --> 00:21:12.250
  • the talents, the power, the versatility, the creativity.
  • 00:21:12.260 --> 00:21:18.100
  • Don't ever say, "I'm not that creative.
  • 00:21:18.110 --> 00:21:20.210
  • I'm not like one of those creative types."
  • 00:21:20.220 --> 00:21:23.040
  • You are made in the image of God, the Creator
  • 00:21:23.050 --> 00:21:25.170
  • of the universe.
  • 00:21:25.180 --> 00:21:31.090
  • Gregory Dickow: Yes indeed, God has closed the gap.
  • 00:21:31.100 --> 00:21:35.010
  • And I'm not talkin' about the clothing store,
  • 00:21:35.020 --> 00:21:37.100
  • The Gap.
  • 00:21:37.110 --> 00:21:38.200
  • The gap between you and him.
  • 00:21:38.210 --> 00:21:40.000
  • Your no-- you no longer have to compare yourself with others.
  • 00:21:40.010 --> 00:21:41.260
  • You don't have to strive to get into God's presence.
  • 00:21:41.270 --> 00:21:44.220
  • You have a seat at the table.
  • 00:21:44.230 --> 00:21:48.030
  • Sit with him.
  • 00:21:48.040 --> 00:21:50.090
  • Take your seat.
  • 00:21:50.100 --> 00:21:51.280
  • And listen, speaking of closing the gap, I've got something
  • 00:21:51.290 --> 00:21:54.260
  • really special for everybody watching, but there are those
  • 00:21:54.270 --> 00:21:57.270
  • that are watching right now, you've never accepted Jesus
  • 00:21:57.280 --> 00:21:59.290
  • Christ as your Savior and Lord.
  • 00:22:00.020 --> 00:22:01.270
  • And we may never have a chance to visit after today.
  • 00:22:01.280 --> 00:22:05.260
  • I hope we do, but if you've never received him as your
  • 00:22:05.270 --> 00:22:08.210
  • Savior and Lord, let me pray with you right now.
  • 00:22:08.220 --> 00:22:10.170
  • And those of you that already Christians, would you be praying
  • 00:22:10.180 --> 00:22:12.250
  • right now for those that are watching and want to get saved
  • 00:22:12.260 --> 00:22:15.270
  • for the first time, that their life will be changed?
  • 00:22:15.280 --> 00:22:18.090
  • Pray this out loud after me.
  • 00:22:18.100 --> 00:22:19.190
  • Just say, "Heavenly Father," that's it, "I invite
  • 00:22:19.200 --> 00:22:22.060
  • Jesus Christ into my life as my Savior and Lord.
  • 00:22:22.070 --> 00:22:27.200
  • I believe Jesus died for my sins and rose from the dead.
  • 00:22:27.210 --> 00:22:33.010
  • From this moment forward, I'm a child of God, amen."
  • 00:22:33.020 --> 00:22:38.140
  • You know, it's that simple, 'cause Jesus did all the work.
  • 00:22:38.150 --> 00:22:41.030
  • All we do is believe.
  • 00:22:41.040 --> 00:22:42.140
  • And if you prayed with me to become a child of God,
  • 00:22:42.150 --> 00:22:44.240
  • welcome to the family.
  • 00:22:44.250 --> 00:22:46.240
  • Welcome home.
  • 00:22:46.250 --> 00:22:48.040
  • If you'll email me at the address on your screen,
  • 00:22:48.050 --> 00:22:50.040
  • I'll send you my free book called,
  • 00:22:50.050 --> 00:22:51.140
  • "The Power of a New Life."
  • 00:22:51.150 --> 00:22:53.230
  • It'll take you through all the next steps of this
  • 00:22:53.240 --> 00:22:55.070
  • victorious, beautiful walk with God.
  • 00:22:55.080 --> 00:22:57.270
  • And if you-- and if you can get ahold of this simple process
  • 00:22:57.280 --> 00:23:02.030
  • of healing the belief that you don't have what it takes,
  • 00:23:02.040 --> 00:23:06.160
  • the devil's tryin' to lie to you, "You don't have what it
  • 00:23:06.170 --> 00:23:08.040
  • takes," listen, let me just remind everybody.
  • 00:23:08.050 --> 00:23:10.240
  • You start believing-- if you're taking notes,
  • 00:23:10.250 --> 00:23:12.220
  • write these things-- these things down.
  • 00:23:12.230 --> 00:23:14.230
  • Number one, you're rooted and grounded in God's grace.
  • 00:23:14.240 --> 00:23:16.190
  • Number two, you're rooted and grounded in God's love when
  • 00:23:16.200 --> 00:23:19.250
  • you're born again.
  • 00:23:19.260 --> 00:23:21.050
  • And number three, you're rooted and grounded in righteousness,
  • 00:23:21.060 --> 00:23:23.230
  • which means you are a king and a priest in Christ.
  • 00:23:23.240 --> 00:23:27.130
  • Now listen, I want to get this to you so that you can live free
  • 00:23:27.140 --> 00:23:31.040
  • from insecurity and all the other lies that the enemy
  • 00:23:31.050 --> 00:23:33.120
  • wants to fill your heart and mind with.
  • 00:23:33.130 --> 00:23:35.140
  • I put this whole series together.
  • 00:23:35.150 --> 00:23:37.060
  • "Sit with me."
  • 00:23:37.070 --> 00:23:38.160
  • It's Jesus's invitation.
  • 00:23:38.170 --> 00:23:39.270
  • It's not sitting with me, it's sitting with Jesus.
  • 00:23:39.280 --> 00:23:41.290
  • That's so much better.
  • 00:23:42.000 --> 00:23:43.290
  • I would love to sit with you, but Jesus has invited you to his
  • 00:23:44.000 --> 00:23:46.260
  • table to sit with him at the right hand of the Father.
  • 00:23:46.270 --> 00:23:50.060
  • That's where you understand your value.
  • 00:23:50.070 --> 00:23:51.170
  • That's what you-- that's where you understand your worth.
  • 00:23:51.180 --> 00:23:53.200
  • That's where you understand your authority and intimacy with God.
  • 00:23:53.210 --> 00:23:57.080
  • Get that whole teaching.
  • 00:23:57.090 --> 00:23:58.220
  • It's available.
  • 00:23:58.230 --> 00:24:00.050
  • My announcer will tell you more.
  • 00:24:00.060 --> 00:24:01.150
  • But before I finish today, I want you to know
  • 00:24:01.160 --> 00:24:02.250
  • I'm on a mission.
  • 00:24:02.260 --> 00:24:04.060
  • I'm telling you this every week, 30 million souls.
  • 00:24:04.070 --> 00:24:05.170
  • Get that, 30 million souls you and I can change together,
  • 00:24:05.180 --> 00:24:08.150
  • but I need your help.
  • 00:24:08.160 --> 00:24:10.150
  • Raising $50.000 is our goal so we can reach 30.000 people
  • 00:24:10.160 --> 00:24:14.040
  • in Haiti by sending them these solar-powered audio Bibles
  • 00:24:14.050 --> 00:24:18.140
  • in the Creole language.
