  • declared over you, "Not guilty."

  • Have you done anything wrong?
  • 00:00:06.000 --> 00:00:07.110
  • Yes, but he still declares you, "Not guilty."
  • 00:00:07.120 --> 00:00:09.170
  • Have you failed?
  • 00:00:09.180 --> 00:00:11.000
  • Yes, but he still declares over you, "Not guilty."
  • 00:00:11.010 --> 00:00:13.120
  • He doesn't say, "You're innocent."
  • 00:00:13.130 --> 00:00:15.020
  • He says, "You're not guilty."
  • 00:00:15.030 --> 00:00:16.180
  • He finds you not guilty because he takes your place, and takes
  • 00:00:16.190 --> 00:00:20.190
  • the pain and the punishment and the shame and the guilt, nails
  • 00:00:20.200 --> 00:00:23.230
  • it to the cross so that you can walk through life guilt free.

  • Gregory: Welcome to "The Power to Change Today."
  • 00:00:56.240 --> 00:00:58.040
  • I'm Greg Dickow.
  • 00:00:58.050 --> 00:00:59.180
  • And listen, so many times you've tried to start over, right?
  • 00:00:59.190 --> 00:01:03.050
  • Maybe it's a New Year's resolution, or your birthday
  • 00:01:03.060 --> 00:01:06.000
  • comes and you swear that tomorrow's gonna
  • 00:01:06.010 --> 00:01:07.180
  • be different than yesterday.
  • 00:01:07.190 --> 00:01:09.100
  • But lo and behold, very soon after that we're back to the
  • 00:01:09.110 --> 00:01:12.290
  • same old patterns of negative habits
  • 00:01:13.000 --> 00:01:16.240
  • or mistakes that we've made.
  • 00:01:16.250 --> 00:01:18.260
  • But listen, it's because we're goin' about it the wrong way.
  • 00:01:18.270 --> 00:01:23.010
  • You can't move forward into the future God has for you
  • 00:01:23.020 --> 00:01:27.070
  • until you leave some things behind.
  • 00:01:27.080 --> 00:01:30.070
  • It's time to travel light and step into your promised season
  • 00:01:30.080 --> 00:01:35.220
  • of victory that God has for you.
  • 00:01:35.230 --> 00:01:37.190
  • And I've got the answer, the very thing that you need to
  • 00:01:37.200 --> 00:01:41.070
  • release the grace in your life so that you can leave your past
  • 00:01:41.080 --> 00:01:45.100
  • behind so you can obtain and experience all that Jesus has
  • 00:01:45.110 --> 00:01:49.070
  • already paid for you to have.
  • 00:01:49.080 --> 00:01:50.210
  • You know, Romans 5:17 tells us that: "Through the abundance of
  • 00:01:50.220 --> 00:01:53.150
  • grace and the gift of righteousness we reign in life."
  • 00:01:53.160 --> 00:01:58.060
  • You see, grace fills the heart, and
  • 00:01:58.070 --> 00:01:59.180
  • righteousness protects the heart.
  • 00:01:59.190 --> 00:02:01.210
  • They work together. So why don't we reign in life?
  • 00:02:01.220 --> 00:02:03.080
  • Either our heart is not filled with the right stuff, which is
  • 00:02:03.090 --> 00:02:07.040
  • the grace of God, or our heart is not protected from the wrong
  • 00:02:07.050 --> 00:02:11.100
  • stuff, guilt, condemnation, shame, and all of those things,
  • 00:02:11.110 --> 00:02:15.090
  • the enemies of righteousness.
  • 00:02:15.100 --> 00:02:16.200
  • But today all of that is about to change as we experience
  • 00:02:16.210 --> 00:02:20.150
  • God's more than amazing grace.
  • 00:02:20.160 --> 00:02:23.210
  • Check this out.
  • 00:02:23.220 --> 00:02:26.160
  • Gregory: The Bible says in Philippians chapter 3, verse 13:
  • 00:02:30.090 --> 00:02:34.100
  • "Forgetting those things that are behind us
  • 00:02:34.110 --> 00:02:37.040
  • and reaching forward to what lies ahead."
  • 00:02:37.050 --> 00:02:40.160
  • How many know that God has some amazing things ahead for you?
  • 00:02:40.170 --> 00:02:45.020
  • He said, "I don't count myself as having apprehended; but one
  • 00:02:45.030 --> 00:02:49.080
  • thing I do, forgetting, forgetting those things which
  • 00:02:49.090 --> 00:02:52.240
  • are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead
  • 00:02:52.250 --> 00:02:56.160
  • I press on towards the mark for the high calling of God
  • 00:02:56.170 --> 00:03:01.050
  • which is in Christ Jesus my Lord."
  • 00:03:01.060 --> 00:03:04.270
  • There is something more that God has for you in the coming year.
  • 00:03:04.280 --> 00:03:10.020
  • There's something great that God has for you in the coming days.
  • 00:03:10.030 --> 00:03:14.030
  • There's something very magnificent and very beyond what
  • 00:03:14.040 --> 00:03:19.020
  • you have got accustomed to that God has for you.
  • 00:03:19.030 --> 00:03:22.160
  • And what we have to do is we have to make room for
  • 00:03:22.170 --> 00:03:25.060
  • what God wants to do in our lives.
  • 00:03:25.070 --> 00:03:28.030
  • We've got to make room for what God wants to operate
  • 00:03:28.040 --> 00:03:32.050
  • and how he wants to operate in our lives.
  • 00:03:32.060 --> 00:03:33.250
  • We've got to make room for the blessing
  • 00:03:33.260 --> 00:03:36.160
  • that he wants to give us.
  • 00:03:36.170 --> 00:03:38.150
  • You know, that's one of the greatest reasons to give, is
  • 00:03:38.160 --> 00:03:41.020
  • because when you give you're making room
  • 00:03:41.030 --> 00:03:43.090
  • for God to give more back to you.
  • 00:03:43.100 --> 00:03:45.170
  • We're making room.
  • 00:03:45.180 --> 00:03:47.020
  • We're, you know, when you're cleanin' out your house
  • 00:03:47.030 --> 00:03:49.160
  • sometimes, you find some stuff that you can't use anymore, and
  • 00:03:49.170 --> 00:03:53.190
  • you start giving stuff away to maybe somebody
  • 00:03:53.200 --> 00:03:56.140
  • that could really use it.
  • 00:03:56.150 --> 00:03:57.240
  • And it's a blessing to let go of some things, and it's a blessing
  • 00:03:57.250 --> 00:04:01.090
  • to give away some things, and make room in your closet, and
  • 00:04:01.100 --> 00:04:05.100
  • make room in your home, and make room in your heart.
  • 00:04:05.110 --> 00:04:08.260
  • And we've gotta make room in our thinking for all
  • 00:04:08.270 --> 00:04:12.020
  • that God wants to do in our lives.
  • 00:04:12.030 --> 00:04:14.060
  • And God wants to do for us more than what
  • 00:04:14.070 --> 00:04:17.030
  • we experienced in this year.
  • 00:04:17.040 --> 00:04:19.160
  • God wants to do more in the coming year than maybe the last
  • 00:04:19.170 --> 00:04:24.040
  • 5 or 10 years combined in our lives, if we can get
  • 00:04:24.050 --> 00:04:28.170
  • our mind around that.
  • 00:04:28.180 --> 00:04:30.030
  • Because remember that, "Eye has not seen and ear has not heard
  • 00:04:30.040 --> 00:04:33.150
  • all that God has prepared for those that love him."
  • 00:04:33.160 --> 00:04:36.070
  • The Bible says that, "He's able to do exceeding abundantly above
  • 00:04:36.080 --> 00:04:40.280
  • and beyond all that we can ask or think, according
  • 00:04:40.290 --> 00:04:44.020
  • to the power of God that works within us."
  • 00:04:44.030 --> 00:04:46.190
  • There's something more that God wants to do in your life.
  • 00:04:46.200 --> 00:04:49.080
  • There's something more, something more, something more.
  • 00:04:49.090 --> 00:04:52.120
  • Say that. Say, "Something more."
  • 00:04:52.130 --> 00:04:54.180
  • audience: Something more.
  • 00:04:54.190 --> 00:04:56.060
  • Gregory: But if we're going to experience that something
  • 00:04:56.070 --> 00:04:57.280
  • more that he wants to do in our lives, we've gotta be willing to
  • 00:04:57.290 --> 00:04:59.210
  • leave some things behind.
  • 00:04:59.220 --> 00:05:01.030
  • We've gotta be willing to let go of some things.
  • 00:05:01.040 --> 00:05:03.030
  • We've gotta be willing to drop some things that we've been
  • 00:05:03.040 --> 00:05:07.120
  • holding onto, and drop some things that we have been
  • 00:05:07.130 --> 00:05:10.120
  • attached to, and drop some things that we've grown
  • 00:05:10.130 --> 00:05:13.260
  • accustomed to, and drop some things that maybe
  • 00:05:13.270 --> 00:05:16.010
  • we've become familiar with.
  • 00:05:16.020 --> 00:05:17.160
  • Well, there's a lot of things that I can think of that I
  • 00:05:17.170 --> 00:05:24.150
  • should let go of as I go into the new year expecting more.
  • 00:05:24.160 --> 00:05:29.070
  • But I want to narrow it down to a handful of things that I could
  • 00:05:29.080 --> 00:05:33.090
  • share with you about how we can let go of some
  • 00:05:33.100 --> 00:05:36.290
  • of the things that are holding us back.
  • 00:05:37.000 --> 00:05:39.220
  • And I wanna start, as we leave some stuff behind, I wanna start
  • 00:05:39.230 --> 00:05:46.190
  • with this thing that we need to leave behind.
  • 00:05:46.200 --> 00:05:49.090
  • And it's a simple word that many people
  • 00:05:49.100 --> 00:05:52.110
  • have a difficult time with.
  • 00:05:52.120 --> 00:05:54.090
  • But it's really easier than you think.
  • 00:05:54.100 --> 00:05:56.200
  • And I hope that by the time we're done today, you'll realize
  • 00:05:56.210 --> 00:05:59.170
  • how simple it is and how much easier it is than how you've
  • 00:05:59.180 --> 00:06:03.030
  • thought, perhaps, up to this point.
  • 00:06:03.040 --> 00:06:05.030
  • And the first thing we need to leave behind as we go into the
  • 00:06:05.040 --> 00:06:07.200
  • new season of our lives is we need to leave behind
  • 00:06:07.210 --> 00:06:11.160
  • unforgiveness from our lives.
  • 00:06:11.170 --> 00:06:13.090
  • We need to leave behind every bit of unforgiveness.
  • 00:06:13.100 --> 00:06:16.190
  • We've gotta go into the new year, we've gotta go into a new
  • 00:06:16.200 --> 00:06:20.040
  • season, we oughtta go into a new day holding nothing against
  • 00:06:20.050 --> 00:06:26.120
  • anyone for any reason.
  • 00:06:26.130 --> 00:06:30.060
  • We've gotta go into the new season of our
  • 00:06:30.070 --> 00:06:32.280
  • life holding nothing against anyone.
  • 00:06:32.290 --> 00:06:36.270
  • Now, that sounds nice, and it sounds good.
  • 00:06:36.280 --> 00:06:40.240
  • But let me tell ya where we have to live this out.
  • 00:06:40.250 --> 00:06:43.200
  • We've gotta live this out, we gotta start
  • 00:06:43.210 --> 00:06:45.100
  • this out in our homes.
  • 00:06:45.110 --> 00:06:46.240
  • We've gotta start this out in our marriages.
  • 00:06:46.250 --> 00:06:49.190
  • We've gotta start this out in our closest relationships
  • 00:06:49.200 --> 00:06:53.010
  • because those are sometimes the ones where
  • 00:06:53.020 --> 00:06:55.170
  • we let down our guard the most.
  • 00:06:55.180 --> 00:06:57.220
  • We're really mature and polite people to strangers sometimes
  • 00:06:57.230 --> 00:07:02.000
  • more than we are to the people that are closest to us.
  • 00:07:02.010 --> 00:07:05.000
  • And usually, it's not the people that are really distant
  • 00:07:05.010 --> 00:07:08.170
  • from us that can hurt us the most.
  • 00:07:08.180 --> 00:07:11.020
  • It's the people that are the closest to us that
  • 00:07:11.030 --> 00:07:13.070
  • can hurt us the most.
  • 00:07:13.080 --> 00:07:14.200
  • And where we have to really learn how to let go and forgive
  • 00:07:14.210 --> 00:07:18.250
  • is we need to forgive our husband, our wife.
  • 00:07:18.260 --> 00:07:22.150
  • We need to forgive our parents, our children.
  • 00:07:22.160 --> 00:07:25.150
  • We need to forgive our brothers, our sisters.
  • 00:07:25.160 --> 00:07:27.190
  • We need to forgive the people in our own household.
  • 00:07:27.200 --> 00:07:30.230
  • And besides that, we need to learn how to forgive ourselves.
  • 00:07:30.240 --> 00:07:34.050
  • Because oftentimes, we're holding something against
  • 00:07:34.060 --> 00:07:37.100
  • ourselves that is holding us back.
  • 00:07:37.110 --> 00:07:39.130
  • But make no mistake about it, when you hold whatever you hold
  • 00:07:39.140 --> 00:07:43.290
  • against somebody else, or whatever you hold against
  • 00:07:44.000 --> 00:07:47.100
  • yourself, will hold you from experiencing the more
  • 00:07:47.110 --> 00:07:53.110
  • that God wants to do in your life.
  • 00:07:59.150 --> 00:08:01.160
  • And so what we have to do is we have to be willing to let go.
  • 00:08:01.170 --> 00:08:04.030
  • I don't wanna let anything, I'm not gonna, I made up my mind I'm
  • 00:08:04.040 --> 00:08:06.240
  • not letting anything hold me back.
  • 00:08:06.250 --> 00:08:08.240
  • And if nothing's gonna hold me back, then I've gotta make sure,
  • 00:08:08.250 --> 00:08:10.240
  • if I wanna get to a place where nothing's holding me back, I
  • 00:08:10.250 --> 00:08:12.240
  • gotta make sure I'm not holding on to
  • 00:08:12.250 --> 00:08:14.240
  • anything I shouldn't be holding onto.
  • 00:08:14.250 --> 00:08:16.240
  • And I don't know, I think in every family, I don't know how
  • 00:08:16.250 --> 00:08:18.240
  • you grew up, but in ever family there seems to be one or two
  • 00:08:18.250 --> 00:08:22.050
  • members of the family, there's always seems to be one member of
  • 00:08:22.060 --> 00:08:24.240
  • the family that holds on to a lot of stuff that
  • 00:08:24.250 --> 00:08:27.130
  • they shouldn't hold onto.
  • 00:08:27.140 --> 00:08:28.250
  • You know what I mean?
  • 00:08:28.260 --> 00:08:30.110
  • I don't know who that is in your household, but where they hold
  • 00:08:30.120 --> 00:08:33.150
  • onto all the things that, you know, they hold onto old
  • 00:08:33.160 --> 00:08:37.040
  • pictures, or they hold it when they're all
  • 00:08:37.050 --> 00:08:39.250
  • on your computer anyway.
  • 00:08:39.260 --> 00:08:41.060
  • Or they hold onto, you know, they hold onto to old diapers.
  • 00:08:41.070 --> 00:08:45.240
  • I don't know what they hold onto.
  • 00:08:45.250 --> 00:08:48.160
  • People hold onto things.
  • 00:08:48.170 --> 00:08:50.090
  • People hold onto thing that they think are mementos, and they
  • 00:08:50.100 --> 00:08:54.010
  • hold onto old clothes that they think they'll
  • 00:08:54.020 --> 00:08:56.160
  • one day fit in again.
  • 00:08:56.170 --> 00:08:59.010
  • How we live in denial, and how we live
  • 00:08:59.020 --> 00:09:02.050
  • in such deception, right?
  • 00:09:02.060 --> 00:09:04.170
  • But we have to be willing to let go.
  • 00:09:04.180 --> 00:09:07.070
  • We have to be willing to let go of the baggage,
  • 00:09:07.080 --> 00:09:10.200
  • let go of our luggage, let go of the things.
  • 00:09:10.210 --> 00:09:14.180
  • We've gotta travel light.
  • 00:09:14.190 --> 00:09:16.050
  • Jesus said, "You gotta travel light.
  • 00:09:16.060 --> 00:09:18.180
  • You gotta, in order to go and do what God's called you to do," he
  • 00:09:18.190 --> 00:09:22.120
  • said, "Take no bag with you," Jesus said in
  • 00:09:22.130 --> 00:09:24.070
  • one passage of Scripture.
  • 00:09:24.080 --> 00:09:25.170
  • He said to his disciples, "Take no bag with you.
  • 00:09:25.180 --> 00:09:28.150
  • Take nothing with you when I send you to
  • 00:09:28.160 --> 00:09:31.040
  • the mission that I have for you."
  • 00:09:31.050 --> 00:09:33.040
  • In other words, travel light. Don't carry baggage.
  • 00:09:33.050 --> 00:09:35.260
  • Don't carry things from your past into your future.
  • 00:09:35.270 --> 00:09:39.080
  • Don't carry something from yesterday into today.
  • 00:09:39.090 --> 00:09:42.100
  • Don't hold grudges. Let people off the hook.
  • 00:09:42.110 --> 00:09:45.190
  • Give mercy. Give kindness.
  • 00:09:45.200 --> 00:09:47.240
  • Give grace. Show goodness towards somebody.
  • 00:09:47.250 --> 00:09:50.140
  • Show that you care.
  • 00:09:50.150 --> 00:09:52.010
  • Show that you're not stingy about your giving.
  • 00:09:52.020 --> 00:09:54.090
  • You're not stingy about your forgiveness.
  • 00:09:54.100 --> 00:09:56.090
  • You're not stingy about what God can do in somebody's life.
  • 00:09:56.100 --> 00:09:59.190
  • Let it go. Release people.
  • 00:09:59.200 --> 00:10:00.290
  • Dismiss the offense. Let go of the bitterness.
  • 00:10:01.000 --> 00:10:03.030
  • Let go of the grudge.
  • 00:10:03.040 --> 00:10:05.010
  • Stop putting that person in that box and defining them by the
  • 00:10:05.020 --> 00:10:10.020
  • thing they did to you 118 years ago.
  • 00:10:10.030 --> 00:10:16.120
  • You know, stop holding onto something from the past.
  • 00:10:16.130 --> 00:10:23.110
  • It's over.
  • 00:10:23.120 --> 00:10:24.280
  • God is more powerful in your life, or God will show himself
  • 00:10:24.290 --> 00:10:30.010
  • more powerful in your life when you stop giving other people so
  • 00:10:30.020 --> 00:10:33.110
  • much power over your life.
  • 00:10:33.120 --> 00:10:35.170
  • When you, you see, God's power to work in your life is limited
  • 00:10:35.180 --> 00:10:41.130
  • when you give people so much power over your life by holding
  • 00:10:41.140 --> 00:10:47.170
  • unforgiveness towards them, by being bitter at somebody.
  • 00:10:47.180 --> 00:10:51.230
  • It may be justifiable.
  • 00:10:51.240 --> 00:10:53.160
  • They may have really wronged you.
  • 00:10:53.170 --> 00:10:55.160
  • They may have really hurt you. They may have really abused you.
  • 00:10:55.170 --> 00:10:58.010
  • But the power of your future is put into motion when
  • 00:10:58.020 --> 00:11:05.150
  • you take the power of your life back.
  • 00:11:05.160 --> 00:11:09.120
  • And the way you take the power of your life, when you take
  • 00:11:09.130 --> 00:11:11.230
  • your--the way to take your life back from
  • 00:11:11.240 --> 00:11:14.110
  • the hands of others is to forgive them.
  • 00:11:14.120 --> 00:11:16.260
  • The way to take your life back is to show mercy.
  • 00:11:16.270 --> 00:11:19.190
  • It's to show kindness.
  • 00:11:19.200 --> 00:11:21.100
  • It's to let go and stop holding onto a grudge.
  • 00:11:21.110 --> 00:11:26.170
  • Stop holding onto that pain. Stop nursing it.
  • 00:11:26.180 --> 00:11:29.280
  • Stop rehearsing it.
  • 00:11:29.290 --> 00:11:31.130
  • And then what'll happen is God will start reversing it.
  • 00:11:31.140 --> 00:11:35.040
  • But we gotta stop holding onto those things and waiting for
  • 00:11:35.050 --> 00:11:40.180
  • somebody to change, waiting for somebody to say they're sorry,
  • 00:11:40.190 --> 00:11:44.110
  • waiting for somebody to apologize, waiting for somebody
  • 00:11:44.120 --> 00:11:47.230
  • to really show you that they've earned your forgiveness.
  • 00:11:47.240 --> 00:11:51.070
  • You didn't earn your forgiveness from God.
  • 00:11:51.080 --> 00:11:53.290
  • It was a free gift.
  • 00:11:54.000 --> 00:11:56.230
  • God forgives us because of Jesus Christ's blood
  • 00:11:56.240 --> 00:12:00.280
  • being shed on the cross.
  • 00:12:00.290 --> 00:12:02.200
  • You can't earn his forgiveness.
  • 00:12:02.210 --> 00:12:04.130
  • You can't deserve his forgiveness.
  • 00:12:04.140 --> 00:12:06.130
  • You can't work for his forgiveness.
  • 00:12:06.140 --> 00:12:08.130
  • You can't apologize into his forgiveness.
  • 00:12:08.140 --> 00:12:11.220
  • It is a gift.
  • 00:12:11.230 --> 00:12:13.050
  • That's why it's called, "Forgiveness."
  • 00:12:13.060 --> 00:12:15.050
  • If you had to, like, put stages to forgiveness,
  • 00:12:15.060 --> 00:12:17.120
  • if I could put it in this way.
  • 00:12:17.130 --> 00:12:23.130
  • Follow this system, if you want to call it that.
  • 00:12:26.010 --> 00:12:29.270
  • But when it comes to forgiveness there's three stages.
  • 00:12:29.280 --> 00:12:34.080
  • In its simplest form, I'll say it like this.
  • 00:12:34.090 --> 00:12:37.160
  • Stage number one, you gotta feel it.
  • 00:12:37.170 --> 00:12:39.280
  • When it comes to unforgiveness, and in order to forgive, you've
  • 00:12:39.290 --> 00:12:43.030
  • gotta feel what that person did, or feel what you did.
  • 00:12:43.040 --> 00:12:46.140
  • So the first stage of forgiveness is you
  • 00:12:46.150 --> 00:12:48.280
  • do feel what they did.
  • 00:12:48.290 --> 00:12:50.080
  • It's okay to feel it.
  • 00:12:50.090 --> 00:12:51.180
  • You don't have to ignore your feelings.
  • 00:12:51.190 --> 00:12:56.060
  • You can't let your feelings control your decisions,
  • 00:12:56.070 --> 00:12:59.250
  • but you can feel something.
  • 00:12:59.260 --> 00:13:02.220
  • So, "I feel hurt. Got it.
  • 00:13:02.230 --> 00:13:05.020
  • I feel it." That's stage one.
  • 00:13:05.030 --> 00:13:07.190
  • That's not, that doesn't complete the process.
  • 00:13:07.200 --> 00:13:10.180
  • Stage one is to feel it. Stage two is to forgive it.
  • 00:13:10.190 --> 00:13:15.030
  • And by the way, forgiving it has nothing to
  • 00:13:15.040 --> 00:13:17.190
  • do with what you feel.
  • 00:13:17.200 --> 00:13:19.190
  • Forgiveness is not a feeling. It's a decision.
  • 00:13:19.200 --> 00:13:22.210
  • And stage three, once you forgive it.
  • 00:13:22.220 --> 00:13:25.210
  • So stage one is to feel it, "I feel hurt."
  • 00:13:25.220 --> 00:13:29.170
  • Stage two is, "I forgive this person for bringing this hurt.
  • 00:13:29.180 --> 00:13:33.100
  • I verbally declare out of my mouth I forgive them.
  • 00:13:33.110 --> 00:13:38.260
  • Lord, I forgive them.
  • 00:13:38.270 --> 00:13:40.260
  • You already forgave me, and you already forgave them, so I'm
  • 00:13:40.270 --> 00:13:44.080
  • just catchin' up to you and I'm agreeing with you.
  • 00:13:44.090 --> 00:13:46.160
  • I forgive them too.
  • 00:13:46.170 --> 00:13:47.260
  • You already forgive 'em, Lord, so I forgive them as well."
  • 00:13:47.270 --> 00:13:51.230
  • So it's feeling it. Then it's forgiving it.
  • 00:13:51.240 --> 00:13:54.140
  • And then it's forgetting it.
  • 00:13:54.150 --> 00:13:56.060
  • And what I mean by that is this is not something that
  • 00:13:56.070 --> 00:14:00.190
  • you have to try to make happen.
  • 00:14:00.200 --> 00:14:02.180
  • You don't have to try to forget it.
  • 00:14:02.190 --> 00:14:04.180
  • But if you feel it, and then you forgive it,
  • 00:14:04.190 --> 00:14:09.170
  • you will eventually forget it.
  • 00:14:09.180 --> 00:14:11.200
  • And what I mean by forgetting it is it may not be
  • 00:14:11.210 --> 00:14:17.040
  • completely erased from your long-term memory,
  • 00:14:17.050 --> 00:14:21.060
  • but it won't affect your short-term memory.
  • 00:14:21.070 --> 00:14:23.090
  • And it won't always be on the front part of your thinking.
  • 00:14:23.100 --> 00:14:26.080
  • And it won't be a part of your decision making.
  • 00:14:26.090 --> 00:14:29.000
  • And it won't be a part of how you process
  • 00:14:29.010 --> 00:14:32.090
  • that person and that relationship.
  • 00:14:32.100 --> 00:14:34.090
  • It's no longer on the forefront of your mind.
  • 00:14:34.100 --> 00:14:38.290
  • And too many Christians are carrying around this
  • 00:14:39.000 --> 00:14:41.080
  • unforgiveness with them, and this bitterness.
  • 00:14:41.090 --> 00:14:45.140
  • And if we will live in the grace of God, what he already did for
  • 00:14:45.150 --> 00:14:52.250
  • us, then we'll be so much more graceful towards others, that we
  • 00:14:52.260 --> 00:14:58.130
  • will not hold anything against them because
  • 00:14:58.140 --> 00:15:00.270
  • God doesn't hold anything against us.
  • 00:15:00.280 --> 00:15:03.090
  • The Bible says, "As far as east is from west,
  • 00:15:03.100 --> 00:15:05.110
  • he's removed our transgressions from us."
  • 00:15:05.120 --> 00:15:09.000
  • The second thing that we need to leave behind as we go into the
  • 00:15:09.010 --> 00:15:12.170
  • new year, or a new season, or a new day, or a new relationship,
  • 00:15:12.180 --> 00:15:15.290
  • is we've gotta leave guilt behind.
  • 00:15:16.000 --> 00:15:18.200
  • We've gotta live a guilt-free life rather than a guilty life.
  • 00:15:18.210 --> 00:15:23.210
  • Too many Christians are living in guilt.
  • 00:15:23.220 --> 00:15:26.040
  • Guilt is a force that affects just about every
  • 00:15:26.050 --> 00:15:32.060
  • spiritual failure in life.
  • 00:15:32.070 --> 00:15:33.240
  • It causes just about every spiritual failure in life.
  • 00:15:33.250 --> 00:15:37.030
  • It hinders our faith.
  • 00:15:37.040 --> 00:15:38.220
  • It gives us an inferiority complex.
  • 00:15:38.230 --> 00:15:40.290
  • It makes us afraid of God rather than running into his arms.
  • 00:15:41.000 --> 00:15:44.100
  • It makes us feel unworthy.
  • 00:15:44.110 --> 00:15:46.110
  • It hinders our ability to receive answered prayer,
  • 00:15:46.120 --> 00:15:49.080
  • and healing, and blessing.
  • 00:15:49.090 --> 00:15:50.260
  • It's guilt, or sin consciousness.
  • 00:15:50.270 --> 00:15:53.110
  • And it makes us cowards. It turns men into cowards.
  • 00:15:53.120 --> 00:15:57.080
  • It robs us of confidence and faith in God.
  • 00:15:57.090 --> 00:16:01.220
  • It robs us of faith in his Word.
  • 00:16:01.230 --> 00:16:05.190
  • Guilt makes us feel like victims rather than victors.
  • 00:16:05.200 --> 00:16:10.000
  • But when we are born again, Jesus removes our sin
  • 00:16:10.010 --> 00:16:14.240
  • from us and our guilt from us.
  • 00:16:14.250 --> 00:16:17.290
  • The Bible says in John 1:29: "Behold!
  • 00:16:18.000 --> 00:16:21.030
  • The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world."
  • 00:16:21.040 --> 00:16:25.260
  • He doesn't just cover our sins. He takes away our sin.
  • 00:16:25.270 --> 00:16:29.270
  • And if he takes our sin away, that means we are free
  • 00:16:29.280 --> 00:16:33.280
  • from the guilt of that sin.
  • 00:16:33.290 --> 00:16:35.260
  • But the world lives in guilt. And Christians operate in guilt.
  • 00:16:35.270 --> 00:16:41.070
  • And we manipulate one another with guilt.
  • 00:16:41.080 --> 00:16:43.240
  • And we are seduced into being manipulated through guilt.
  • 00:16:43.250 --> 00:16:48.160
  • And what we have to do is we have to realize that guilt
  • 00:16:48.170 --> 00:16:51.270
  • is a power and a force of darkness.
  • 00:16:51.280 --> 00:16:54.190
  • It is not a gift of God. It is not good to live in guilt.
  • 00:16:54.200 --> 00:17:00.220
  • It's really, it's an enemy of your peace.
  • 00:17:03.010 --> 00:17:07.020
  • It's an enemy of joy.
  • 00:17:07.030 --> 00:17:08.130
  • Because you're either guilty for what you did or
  • 00:17:08.140 --> 00:17:14.100
  • you're guilty for what you haven't done.
  • 00:17:14.110 --> 00:17:17.240
  • And this is how Satan keeps you in bondage and keeps you limited
  • 00:17:17.250 --> 00:17:21.150
  • from being the best version of yourself,
  • 00:17:21.160 --> 00:17:23.170
  • by beating you down with guilt.
  • 00:17:23.180 --> 00:17:26.270
  • "You don't do the right thing. You don't say the right thing.
  • 00:17:26.280 --> 00:17:29.200
  • You never do enough for people.
  • 00:17:29.210 --> 00:17:31.060
  • You don't do enough for your kids.
  • 00:17:31.070 --> 00:17:33.060
  • You don't do enough for your spouse.
  • 00:17:33.070 --> 00:17:35.060
  • You don't do enough for your wife, your husband.
  • 00:17:35.070 --> 00:17:37.060
  • You don't do enough for your parents.
  • 00:17:37.070 --> 00:17:39.060
  • You don't wear the right clothes.
  • 00:17:39.070 --> 00:17:41.060
  • You don't have the right clothes.
  • 00:17:41.070 --> 00:17:43.060
  • You don't have the right smile. You don't have the right talent.
  • 00:17:43.070 --> 00:17:45.060
  • You don't have the right abilities."
  • 00:17:45.070 --> 00:17:47.060
  • Listen to how these things are constantly beating us down.
  • 00:17:47.070 --> 00:17:49.190
  • "You get angry so easily. You're lazy.
  • 00:17:49.200 --> 00:17:52.200
  • You don't get it all done.
  • 00:17:52.210 --> 00:17:58.210
  • You never seem to do anything right.
  • 00:18:39.010 --> 00:18:41.000
  • You never seem to have enough time.
  • 00:18:41.010 --> 00:18:43.000
  • You're always late. You're always fat.
  • 00:18:43.010 --> 00:18:44.200
  • You never lose weight.
  • 00:18:44.210 --> 00:18:46.000
  • You always say you're gonna lose weight, but then you never do.
  • 00:18:46.010 --> 00:18:48.000
  • You always gain 10 more after you claim that you've lost 5.
  • 00:18:48.010 --> 00:18:49.200
  • You're always such a liar.
  • 00:18:49.210 --> 00:18:51.000
  • You're always such a--you just ta--you always just
  • 00:18:51.010 --> 00:18:52.200
  • say things that you don't mean.
  • 00:18:52.210 --> 00:18:54.000
  • You always fail at this and you try this."
  • 00:18:54.010 --> 00:18:56.000
  • This is Satan trying to lie to you and
  • 00:18:56.010 --> 00:18:57.200
  • put this guilt complex on you.
  • 00:18:57.210 --> 00:18:59.000
  • And you gotta go into the new year, and you gotta into the new
  • 00:18:59.010 --> 00:19:01.020
  • season without livin' in guilt, without letting guilt control
  • 00:19:01.030 --> 00:19:03.020
  • your mind, and control your emotions, and, feeling like,
  • 00:19:03.030 --> 00:19:05.020
  • "Oh, I've failed. And I didn't do this enough.
  • 00:19:05.030 --> 00:19:06.220
  • And I didn't do this enough."
  • 00:19:06.230 --> 00:19:08.020
  • And you start praying and you hear the devil say, "You don't
  • 00:19:08.030 --> 00:19:09.220
  • read your Bible enough."
  • 00:19:09.230 --> 00:19:11.020
  • So you start reading your Bible.
  • 00:19:11.030 --> 00:19:13.020
  • And the devil says, "You don't pray enough."
  • 00:19:13.030 --> 00:19:14.220
  • And this is how Satan operates.
  • 00:19:14.230 --> 00:19:16.020
  • And we've gotta stop letting him push us around with guilt.
  • 00:19:16.030 --> 00:19:18.020
  • "There's no condemnation for those who are in Christ."
  • 00:19:18.030 --> 00:19:20.020
  • Now, I'm not saying that we shouldn't take
  • 00:19:20.030 --> 00:19:21.220
  • responsibility for our live.
  • 00:19:21.230 --> 00:19:23.020
  • We should take responsibility for our decisions.
  • 00:19:23.030 --> 00:19:25.020
  • We should take responsibility for our mistakes.
  • 00:19:25.030 --> 00:19:27.020
  • God doesn't accept excuses, but he gives plenty of grace.
  • 00:19:27.030 --> 00:19:29.020
  • In other words, don't make up excuses.
  • 00:19:29.030 --> 00:19:31.000
  • Just go to God and receive more grace.
  • 00:19:31.010 --> 00:19:33.000
  • Because, "Where sin abounds, grace abounds all the more."
  • 00:19:33.010 --> 00:19:35.000
  • And that doesn't mean that we should go and continue to sin.
  • 00:19:35.010 --> 00:19:37.000
  • But it means that there's always more grace
  • 00:19:37.010 --> 00:19:38.200
  • than there is mistakes.
  • 00:19:38.210 --> 00:19:40.000
  • Whatever mistakes we make, there's always
  • 00:19:40.010 --> 00:19:42.000
  • more grace than there is mistakes.
  • 00:19:42.010 --> 00:19:44.000
  • There's always more grace than there are shortcomings.
  • 00:19:44.010 --> 00:19:46.000
  • There's always more grace than there is sin.
  • 00:19:46.010 --> 00:19:48.000
  • There's always more grace than there is weakness.
  • 00:19:48.010 --> 00:19:50.000
  • And what we have to do is we have to realize
  • 00:19:50.010 --> 00:19:51.100
  • God has grace towards us.
  • 00:19:51.110 --> 00:19:52.200
  • God has mercy towards us.
  • 00:19:52.210 --> 00:19:54.000
  • "His mercy is new every morning," the Bible says in
  • 00:19:54.010 --> 00:19:56.000
  • Lamentations 3:22 and 23: "His mercy is new every morning; and
  • 00:19:56.010 --> 00:19:58.000
  • his faithfulness never comes to an end."
  • 00:19:58.010 --> 00:20:00.000
  • We need to walk in life, we need to wake up every day and say,
  • 00:20:00.010 --> 00:20:01.200
  • "I'm not gonna live in guilt.
  • 00:20:01.210 --> 00:20:03.000
  • I'll take responsibility for what I did, but Jesus
  • 00:20:03.010 --> 00:20:04.200
  • already paid the price.
  • 00:20:04.210 --> 00:20:06.000
  • Jesus took my shame. He took the guilt.
  • 00:20:06.010 --> 00:20:08.000
  • He took the sin. He took my pain away from me.
  • 00:20:08.010 --> 00:20:10.000
  • And I am now gonna live guilt free."
  • 00:20:10.010 --> 00:20:12.000
  • People have guilt-free diets, where they eat stuff that, you
  • 00:20:12.010 --> 00:20:14.000
  • know, there's guilt-free pudding, and there's guilt-free
  • 00:20:14.010 --> 00:20:16.000
  • steak, and there's guilt-free milk, and there's guilt-free
  • 00:20:16.010 --> 00:20:18.000
  • this, and there's guilt-free cheese.
  • 00:20:18.010 --> 00:20:20.000
  • And people, you know, why not just live a guilt-free life?
  • 00:20:20.010 --> 00:20:22.000
  • Where we're walkin' this earth realizing he has thrown down the
  • 00:20:22.010 --> 00:20:26.170
  • gavel and determined the sentence for us, and he has
  • 00:20:26.180 --> 00:20:31.010
  • declared us, the verdict is in, and Jesus has declared over you,
  • 00:20:31.020 --> 00:20:35.090
  • "Not guilty. Not guilty.
  • 00:20:35.100 --> 00:20:38.010
  • Not guilty." Have you done anything wrong?
  • 00:20:38.020 --> 00:20:44.100
  • Yes, but he still declares you, "Not guilty."
  • 00:20:44.110 --> 00:20:46.210
  • Have you failed?
  • 00:20:46.220 --> 00:20:48.010
  • Yes, but he still declares over you, "Not guilty."
  • 00:20:48.020 --> 00:20:50.070
  • He doesn't say, "You're innocent."
  • 00:20:50.080 --> 00:20:52.010
  • He says, "You're not guilty."
  • 00:20:52.020 --> 00:20:53.150
  • He finds you not guilty because he takes your place, and takes
  • 00:20:53.160 --> 00:20:57.170
  • the pain and the punishment and the shame and the guilt, nails
  • 00:20:57.180 --> 00:21:00.220
  • it to the cross so that you can walk through life guilt free.
  • 00:21:00.230 --> 00:21:05.180
  • We've gotta go into the new season of our
  • 00:21:05.190 --> 00:21:07.180
  • lives without guilt.
  • 00:21:07.190 --> 00:21:10.070
  • Let's go and let's lay down, "Whatever anybody's done to me,
  • 00:21:10.080 --> 00:21:14.020
  • I lay it at the cross.
  • 00:21:14.030 --> 00:21:15.170
  • Whatever I've done wrong that's makin' me feel guilty,
  • 00:21:15.180 --> 00:21:18.240
  • I lay it at the cross."
  • 00:21:18.250 --> 00:21:20.080
  • And the final thing we need to leave behind as we go forward is
  • 00:21:20.090 --> 00:21:25.060
  • we need to leave behind small expectations.
  • 00:21:25.070 --> 00:21:27.240
  • We need to leave behind small thinking.
  • 00:21:27.250 --> 00:21:30.110
  • We need to leave behind the limited view of ourselves and
  • 00:21:30.120 --> 00:21:33.040
  • our limited view of God.
  • 00:21:33.050 --> 00:21:34.280
  • We need to leave behind a small God, small expectations, small
  • 00:21:34.290 --> 00:21:39.240
  • prayers, small thoughts.
  • 00:21:39.250 --> 00:21:42.090
  • We need to leave small thinking behind.
  • 00:21:42.100 --> 00:21:46.060
  • And if you will leave behind these three things, leave
  • 00:21:46.070 --> 00:21:49.290
  • unforgiveness behind you today, leave bitterness, unforgiveness
  • 00:21:50.000 --> 00:21:55.200
  • and bitterness behind you, leave guilt behind you, and leave
  • 00:21:55.210 --> 00:21:59.150
  • small thinking behind you, and small expectations, you'll have
  • 00:21:59.160 --> 00:22:04.010
  • the greatest life that you could possibly ever imagine.
  • 00:22:04.020 --> 00:22:08.000
  • God will do exceeding abundantly beyond all
  • 00:22:08.010 --> 00:22:10.200
  • that you can ask or think.
  • 00:22:10.210 --> 00:22:12.210
  • Gregory: Well, Paul said in Philippians 3:13, he focused on
  • 00:22:17.100 --> 00:22:19.200
  • one thing: "Forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward," or
  • 00:22:19.210 --> 00:22:25.060
  • looking ahead, "to God's plan and God's purpose."
  • 00:22:25.070 --> 00:22:28.140
  • And I know you're ready for that type of focus, releasing the
  • 00:22:28.150 --> 00:22:32.080
  • things that are behind you and stepping in to God's great
  • 00:22:32.090 --> 00:22:35.060
  • future, his abundant future, his victorious future for you.
  • 00:22:35.070 --> 00:22:38.260
  • Now, listen, I want to pray for you in a moment.
  • 00:22:38.270 --> 00:22:40.220
  • But before I do, I want to make available to you some tools to
  • 00:22:40.230 --> 00:22:44.000
  • release God's grace, and his abundance, and his strength,
  • 00:22:44.010 --> 00:22:47.000
  • and his power in your life.
  • 00:22:47.010 --> 00:22:48.250
  • And as you sow into the ministry today, I wanna help you to
  • 00:22:48.260 --> 00:22:54.100
  • experience this amazing grace.
  • 00:22:54.110 --> 00:22:55.280
  • And I want you to help countless others.
  • 00:22:55.290 --> 00:22:58.020
  • God has called me to partner with you.
  • 00:22:58.030 --> 00:23:00.140
  • Now, I wanna partner with you. I wanna coach you.
  • 00:23:00.150 --> 00:23:02.180
  • I wanna help you, encourage you, strengthen you to experience the
