  • - 1 John 3:20.
  • 00:00:42.200 --> 00:00:45.200
  • For if our heart condemns us,
  • 00:00:45.200 --> 00:00:47.270
  • God is greater than our heart
  • 00:00:48.200 --> 00:00:51.200
  • and knows all things.
  • 00:00:51.210 --> 00:00:54.210
  • Beloved, if our heart does
  • 00:00:56.100 --> 00:00:59.100
  • not condemn us,
  • 00:00:59.100 --> 00:01:00.220
  • we have confidence toward God.
  • 00:01:00.220 --> 00:01:02.190
  • And whatever we ask we receive
  • 00:01:02.190 --> 00:01:04.040
  • of Him because we keep
  • 00:01:04.040 --> 00:01:06.000
  • His commandments
  • 00:01:06.000 --> 00:01:06.280
  • and do those things that are
  • 00:01:06.280 --> 00:01:07.280
  • pleasing in His sight.
  • 00:01:07.280 --> 00:01:09.130
  • That's important.
  • 00:01:09.130 --> 00:01:11.020
  • OK, so what is pleasing
  • 00:01:11.020 --> 00:01:12.090
  • in His sight?
  • 00:01:12.090 --> 00:01:13.070
  • What is His commandment?
  • 00:01:13.070 --> 00:01:14.160
  • And this is His commandment.
  • 00:01:14.180 --> 00:01:17.180
  • That we should believe
  • 00:01:17.180 --> 00:01:18.290
  • on the name of His Son
  • 00:01:18.290 --> 00:01:21.210
  • Jesus Christ and love one
  • 00:01:21.210 --> 00:01:24.210
  • another, as He has commanded us.
  • 00:01:28.130 --> 00:01:31.130
  • I want you to focus in
  • 00:01:31.130 --> 00:01:32.290
  • for just a moment on verse 20.
  • 00:01:32.290 --> 00:01:34.250
  • For if our heart condemns us,
  • 00:01:34.250 --> 00:01:37.140
  • God is greater than our heart,
  • 00:01:37.140 --> 00:01:40.090
  • and He knows all things.
  • 00:01:40.090 --> 00:01:42.000
  • I wanna preach on
  • 00:01:42.000 --> 00:01:42.280
  • guilt-free living.
  • 00:01:44.180 --> 00:01:47.180
  • Guilt, condemnation,
  • 00:01:47.200 --> 00:01:50.200
  • a sense of failure will gnaw
  • 00:01:50.200 --> 00:01:53.060
  • at you if you allow it.
  • 00:01:54.170 --> 00:01:57.170
  • But in Jeremiah 17:9,
  • 00:01:57.170 --> 00:02:00.130
  • the Bible said that your heart
  • 00:02:00.130 --> 00:02:02.230
  • is deceitfully wicked,
  • 00:02:02.230 --> 00:02:05.190
  • and you are not to believe
  • 00:02:06.040 --> 00:02:09.040
  • the report your heart constantly
  • 00:02:09.110 --> 00:02:12.110
  • tells you about your
  • 00:02:13.040 --> 00:02:16.040
  • relationship with God.
  • 00:02:16.040 --> 00:02:18.180
  • Your heart can only register
  • 00:02:18.180 --> 00:02:20.120
  • right or wrong.
  • 00:02:20.120 --> 00:02:22.170
  • Your heart knows when you
  • 00:02:22.170 --> 00:02:23.210
  • do right and you do wrong,
  • 00:02:23.210 --> 00:02:25.060
  • and you get an emotion
  • 00:02:25.060 --> 00:02:26.120
  • and a feeling about it.
  • 00:02:26.120 --> 00:02:28.200
  • And that's good.
  • 00:02:28.200 --> 00:02:31.100
  • But your heart is not the final
  • 00:02:31.100 --> 00:02:33.130
  • authority over your life.
  • 00:02:34.050 --> 00:02:37.050
  • It can only register
  • 00:02:37.050 --> 00:02:38.070
  • right or wrong.
  • 00:02:38.070 --> 00:02:39.040
  • It can only register
  • 00:02:39.040 --> 00:02:40.200
  • you've been good
  • 00:02:40.200 --> 00:02:41.190
  • or you've been bad.
  • 00:02:41.190 --> 00:02:44.100
  • But I know a higher court,
  • 00:02:44.100 --> 00:02:45.270
  • according to this text.
  • 00:02:45.270 --> 00:02:48.150
  • And it said if our heart
  • 00:02:48.150 --> 00:02:49.190
  • condemns us, there is one who
  • 00:02:49.190 --> 00:02:52.120
  • is greater than our heart,
  • 00:02:52.120 --> 00:02:55.050
  • and He knows all things.
  • 00:02:55.160 --> 00:02:58.160
  • And it's a powerful thing
  • 00:02:58.160 --> 00:02:59.230
  • when you understand that
  • 00:02:59.230 --> 00:03:02.100
  • the scripture I just read
  • 00:03:02.100 --> 00:03:04.090
  • - I used to read it and think,
  • 00:03:04.090 --> 00:03:06.140
  • you know, if our heart
  • 00:03:06.140 --> 00:03:09.070
  • condemns us,
  • 00:03:09.070 --> 00:03:10.150
  • God is even greater
  • 00:03:10.150 --> 00:03:11.220
  • than our heart.
  • 00:03:11.220 --> 00:03:12.210
  • His standard is even higher
  • 00:03:12.210 --> 00:03:14.030
  • than our heart,
  • 00:03:14.030 --> 00:03:15.150
  • and He knows all things.
  • 00:03:15.150 --> 00:03:17.100
  • And that's not what that
  • 00:03:17.100 --> 00:03:18.290
  • verse means.
  • 00:03:18.290 --> 00:03:21.160
  • This is not a verse
  • 00:03:21.160 --> 00:03:22.190
  • of condemnation.
  • 00:03:22.190 --> 00:03:25.010
  • This is a verse
  • 00:03:25.010 --> 00:03:26.270
  • of encouragement.
  • 00:03:26.270 --> 00:03:29.010
  • That even if your own heart
  • 00:03:29.010 --> 00:03:31.070
  • is registering to you
  • 00:03:31.070 --> 00:03:33.070
  • that you have done wrong,
  • 00:03:33.070 --> 00:03:35.230
  • God, who saved you
  • 00:03:35.230 --> 00:03:37.120
  • when you were a sinner,
  • 00:03:37.120 --> 00:03:39.260
  • still loves you when
  • 00:03:39.260 --> 00:03:41.150
  • you're a son or a daughter
  • 00:03:41.150 --> 00:03:43.150
  • that has done wrong.
  • 00:03:43.190 --> 00:03:46.190
  • And He says this is not
  • 00:03:46.190 --> 00:03:47.250
  • some loose message where
  • 00:03:47.250 --> 00:03:50.020
  • you live wild and crazy.
  • 00:03:50.020 --> 00:03:51.270
  • That's not what I'm preaching.
  • 00:03:51.270 --> 00:03:53.090
  • But I am preaching the gospel
  • 00:03:53.090 --> 00:03:55.030
  • of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:03:55.030 --> 00:03:57.170
  • And if your heart condemns you,
  • 00:03:57.170 --> 00:03:59.210
  • God is greater than that voice
  • 00:03:59.210 --> 00:04:02.190
  • and that heart
  • 00:04:02.190 --> 00:04:03.190
  • that condemns you,
  • 00:04:03.190 --> 00:04:04.210
  • and He knows all things.
  • 00:04:04.210 --> 00:04:06.040
  • He knows you
  • 00:04:06.040 --> 00:04:07.290
  • want to please Him ultimately.
  • 00:04:10.100 --> 00:04:13.100
  • Your heart says bad.
  • 00:04:13.100 --> 00:04:16.010
  • Your heart says hypocrite.
  • 00:04:16.010 --> 00:04:18.130
  • Your heart says failure.
  • 00:04:18.130 --> 00:04:20.240
  • Your heart says quit.
  • 00:04:20.240 --> 00:04:23.090
  • But He who knows all
  • 00:04:23.090 --> 00:04:24.170
  • things says hold on.
  • 00:04:24.270 --> 00:04:27.270
  • Grace is coming.
  • 00:04:27.270 --> 00:04:29.200
  • Forgiveness is coming.
  • 00:04:29.200 --> 00:04:32.180
  • Romans 5:8 said God commended
  • 00:04:32.180 --> 00:04:35.070
  • His love to us that while
  • 00:04:35.070 --> 00:04:37.080
  • we were yet sinners,
  • 00:04:37.080 --> 00:04:39.180
  • Christ died for us.
  • 00:04:39.280 --> 00:04:42.280
  • He loved us
  • 00:04:42.280 --> 00:04:44.020
  • when we were sinners.
  • 00:04:44.020 --> 00:04:45.150
  • How much does He love us now
  • 00:04:45.150 --> 00:04:48.020
  • that we are sons
  • 00:04:48.020 --> 00:04:49.100
  • and daughters of Christ?
  • 00:04:49.100 --> 00:04:51.090
  • And if our heart condemns us,
  • 00:04:51.090 --> 00:04:53.250
  • we need to understand
  • 00:04:53.250 --> 00:04:55.050
  • that He's greater.
  • 00:04:55.050 --> 00:04:56.270
  • That His voice is greater.
  • 00:04:56.270 --> 00:04:58.220
  • His cross is greater.
  • 00:04:58.220 --> 00:05:00.120
  • And here's the important thing.
  • 00:05:00.120 --> 00:05:02.110
  • In 1 John 3:21,
  • 00:05:03.000 --> 00:05:06.000
  • He then goes on and says for
  • 00:05:06.000 --> 00:05:07.220
  • if our hearts condemn us not
  • 00:05:07.220 --> 00:05:09.190
  • - notice this word -
  • 00:05:09.190 --> 00:05:10.250
  • then we have confidence
  • 00:05:10.250 --> 00:05:11.260
  • toward God.
  • 00:05:11.260 --> 00:05:13.210
  • He's really correcting us,
  • 00:05:13.210 --> 00:05:15.130
  • and He's saying I don't
  • 00:05:15.130 --> 00:05:17.130
  • want you to just approach me
  • 00:05:17.130 --> 00:05:20.110
  • when you're feeling
  • 00:05:20.110 --> 00:05:21.130
  • like you're having
  • 00:05:21.130 --> 00:05:22.080
  • your best days.
  • 00:05:22.080 --> 00:05:25.040
  • Because there's a tendency
  • 00:05:25.040 --> 00:05:26.270
  • in our kind of human love
  • 00:05:26.270 --> 00:05:29.230
  • to base it upon performance.
  • 00:05:29.230 --> 00:05:32.200
  • My approval over your life
  • 00:05:32.210 --> 00:05:35.210
  • is according
  • 00:05:35.210 --> 00:05:36.220
  • to your performance.
  • 00:05:36.220 --> 00:05:38.100
  • And if you keep my rules,
  • 00:05:38.100 --> 00:05:39.240
  • and if you keep
  • 00:05:39.240 --> 00:05:40.220
  • what I tell you to do,
  • 00:05:40.220 --> 00:05:42.000
  • and if you do everything
  • 00:05:42.000 --> 00:05:42.280
  • I ask you
  • 00:05:42.280 --> 00:05:43.280
  • to do according to the way
  • 00:05:43.280 --> 00:05:45.010
  • that I ask it,
  • 00:05:45.010 --> 00:05:46.000
  • then I approve.
  • 00:05:46.000 --> 00:05:47.070
  • And you can come with
  • 00:05:47.070 --> 00:05:48.170
  • confidence toward me.
  • 00:05:48.170 --> 00:05:50.150
  • But God said that's not
  • 00:05:50.150 --> 00:05:52.090
  • how I want you to be.
  • 00:05:52.090 --> 00:05:54.140
  • I don't want you on your
  • 00:05:54.140 --> 00:05:55.210
  • good days to act like
  • 00:05:55.210 --> 00:05:57.180
  • you can come because of what
  • 00:05:57.180 --> 00:05:59.150
  • you have done and be confident
  • 00:05:59.200 --> 00:06:02.220
  • that I'm going to answer
  • 00:06:02.220 --> 00:06:04.050
  • and hear your prayer.
  • 00:06:04.050 --> 00:06:06.090
  • But Hebrews 4 puts it like this.
  • 00:06:07.070 --> 00:06:10.070
  • We are to come boldly
  • 00:06:10.070 --> 00:06:12.100
  • before the throne of grace
  • 00:06:12.100 --> 00:06:15.070
  • in the time of need.
  • 00:06:16.000 --> 00:06:19.000
  • Oh.
  • 00:06:19.000 --> 00:06:20.150
  • Come boldly before the throne
  • 00:06:20.150 --> 00:06:21.160
  • of grace that we might
  • 00:06:21.160 --> 00:06:22.150
  • obtain mercy.
  • 00:06:22.150 --> 00:06:23.130
  • That's the time
  • 00:06:23.130 --> 00:06:24.090
  • when I don't feel like coming
  • 00:06:24.090 --> 00:06:25.080
  • is when I need mercy.
  • 00:06:25.080 --> 00:06:26.170
  • When I need grace.
  • 00:06:26.170 --> 00:06:27.180
  • Usually when your heart
  • 00:06:27.180 --> 00:06:28.210
  • condemns you,
  • 00:06:28.210 --> 00:06:29.170
  • your head goes down.
  • 00:06:29.170 --> 00:06:31.190
  • Usually when your heart
  • 00:06:31.190 --> 00:06:32.140
  • condemns you, you're ashamed.
  • 00:06:32.140 --> 00:06:34.150
  • Usually when your heart
  • 00:06:34.150 --> 00:06:35.120
  • condemns you,
  • 00:06:35.120 --> 00:06:36.140
  • the last thing in the world
  • 00:06:36.140 --> 00:06:37.170
  • you feel like doing is going
  • 00:06:37.170 --> 00:06:39.160
  • into the throne of grace.
  • 00:06:39.160 --> 00:06:41.080
  • But God says I want you
  • 00:06:41.080 --> 00:06:43.020
  • then to lift up your head,
  • 00:06:43.020 --> 00:06:45.250
  • and to come boldly into
  • 00:06:45.250 --> 00:06:47.190
  • the throne of grace,
  • 00:06:47.190 --> 00:06:49.030
  • and stand on a bloody
  • 00:06:49.030 --> 00:06:50.180
  • welcome mat.
  • 00:06:50.180 --> 00:06:52.070
  • And you'll stand not
  • 00:06:52.070 --> 00:06:53.150
  • in your performance,
  • 00:06:53.150 --> 00:06:55.230
  • but your acceptance will be
  • 00:06:55.230 --> 00:06:58.000
  • predicated upon my performance
  • 00:06:58.030 --> 00:07:01.050
  • on the cross
  • 00:07:01.050 --> 00:07:02.250
  • and when I shed my blood
  • 00:07:02.250 --> 00:07:04.170
  • and rose from the dead.
  • 00:07:04.170 --> 00:07:06.050
  • I don't want you ashamed.
  • 00:07:06.050 --> 00:07:08.070
  • I don't want you condemned.
  • 00:07:08.070 --> 00:07:10.160
  • I want you to lift your
  • 00:07:10.160 --> 00:07:11.170
  • head up.
  • 00:07:11.170 --> 00:07:12.180
  • And in your time of weakness,
  • 00:07:12.180 --> 00:07:14.190
  • in your time of need,
  • 00:07:14.190 --> 00:07:16.230
  • in your time of failure,
  • 00:07:16.230 --> 00:07:19.030
  • come boldly.
  • 00:07:19.030 --> 00:07:20.220
  • We don't believe
  • 00:07:20.220 --> 00:07:21.180
  • what I'm preaching.
  • 00:07:21.180 --> 00:07:22.160
  • We believe that we're supposed
  • 00:07:22.160 --> 00:07:23.240
  • to go around --
  • 00:07:23.240 --> 00:07:25.080
  • but He said I want you in
  • 00:07:25.080 --> 00:07:27.020
  • your time of weakness and need.
  • 00:07:28.180 --> 00:07:31.180
  • Come on in.
  • 00:07:31.180 --> 00:07:33.030
  • Come in with boldness.
  • 00:07:33.030 --> 00:07:34.290
  • And if your heart condemns you,
  • 00:07:34.290 --> 00:07:36.270
  • I'm greater than your heart,
  • 00:07:36.270 --> 00:07:39.040
  • and I know all things.
  • 00:07:39.040 --> 00:07:41.090
  • I see beyond your fault,
  • 00:07:43.050 --> 00:07:46.050
  • and I see what you will
  • 00:07:46.050 --> 00:07:47.040
  • become by my grace.
  • 00:07:47.240 --> 00:07:50.240
  • How many of you are parents?
  • 00:07:54.290 --> 00:07:56.010
  • Lemme see your hand.
  • 00:07:56.010 --> 00:07:57.020
  • Parents.
  • 00:07:57.020 --> 00:07:58.230
  • How many of you have kids
  • 00:07:58.230 --> 00:08:00.020
  • They lie.
  • 00:08:06.130 --> 00:08:08.110
  • And you know what?
  • 00:08:08.110 --> 00:08:09.040
  • I wanna ask you
  • 00:08:09.040 --> 00:08:09.270
  • a second question.
  • 00:08:09.270 --> 00:08:10.200
  • How many of you put em up
  • 00:08:10.200 --> 00:08:11.160
  • for adoption when they did?
  • 00:08:11.170 --> 00:08:14.170
  • How many of you wanted to?
  • 00:08:14.170 --> 00:08:16.010
  • [laughter]
  • 00:08:16.060 --> 00:08:19.060
  • You didn't.
  • 00:08:19.060 --> 00:08:21.010
  • As a matter of fact,
  • 00:08:21.010 --> 00:08:22.160
  • the worse things they did
  • 00:08:23.120 --> 00:08:26.120
  • in reality made me
  • 00:08:26.120 --> 00:08:28.060
  • love em more.
  • 00:08:28.060 --> 00:08:30.100
  • Made my heart go to em more.
  • 00:08:30.100 --> 00:08:33.000
  • God is the same way.
  • 00:08:34.180 --> 00:08:37.180
  • And when you understand that,
  • 00:08:37.180 --> 00:08:39.140
  • and you understand if our heart
  • 00:08:39.140 --> 00:08:40.190
  • condemns us,
  • 00:08:41.070 --> 00:08:44.070
  • God is greater than our heart.
  • 00:08:44.070 --> 00:08:46.120
  • He does not love me less
  • 00:08:46.120 --> 00:08:47.160
  • because I fail.
  • 00:08:47.160 --> 00:08:49.130
  • God doesn't condemn.
  • 00:08:49.130 --> 00:08:50.200
  • He convicts.
  • 00:08:50.200 --> 00:08:52.010
  • The devil condemns, listen,
  • 00:08:52.010 --> 00:08:53.150
  • because he gives
  • 00:08:53.150 --> 00:08:55.010
  • what's inside of him.
  • 00:08:55.010 --> 00:08:56.270
  • He's condemned.
  • 00:08:56.270 --> 00:08:59.160
  • He messed up,
  • 00:08:59.160 --> 00:09:01.010
  • and God didn't send a flea
  • 00:09:01.010 --> 00:09:02.110
  • to redeem him.
  • 00:09:02.110 --> 00:09:04.260
  • I messed up,
  • 00:09:04.260 --> 00:09:06.050
  • and God bankrupted Heaven
  • 00:09:06.050 --> 00:09:08.010
  • and sent His Son to redeem me.
  • 00:09:08.210 --> 00:09:11.210
  • All he can do is condemn,
  • 00:09:11.210 --> 00:09:14.000
  • but the Holy Spirit
  • 00:09:14.000 --> 00:09:15.030
  • convicts and draws me to Jesus.
  • 00:09:15.030 --> 00:09:17.250
  • He condemns and tries
  • 00:09:17.250 --> 00:09:18.260
  • to drive me away from Him.
  • 00:09:18.260 --> 00:09:21.240
  • By the way, that devil
  • 00:09:21.240 --> 00:09:23.070
  • that condemns you
  • 00:09:23.070 --> 00:09:24.250
  • and attacks you the moment
  • 00:09:24.250 --> 00:09:26.040
  • you fall for the temptation
  • 00:09:26.040 --> 00:09:29.040
  • is the same one --
  • 00:09:29.040 --> 00:09:30.230
  • I just wanna remind him every
  • 00:09:30.230 --> 00:09:32.070
  • once in a while.
  • 00:09:32.070 --> 00:09:34.030
  • Nobody's been a loser
  • 00:09:34.030 --> 00:09:35.290
  • longer than Satan.
  • 00:09:36.090 --> 00:09:39.090
  • He couldn't even live right
  • 00:09:39.090 --> 00:09:41.090
  • in the throne room
  • 00:09:41.090 --> 00:09:42.050
  • of Heaven.
  • 00:09:42.050 --> 00:09:43.140
  • He couldn't live for God
  • 00:09:43.140 --> 00:09:44.240
  • when there was no devil.
  • 00:09:44.240 --> 00:09:47.140
  • He couldn't live for God
  • 00:09:47.140 --> 00:09:48.230
  • when there was no temptation.
  • 00:09:48.230 --> 00:09:50.200
  • He couldn't live for God
  • 00:09:50.200 --> 00:09:51.260
  • when there was no curse.
  • 00:09:51.260 --> 00:09:53.100
  • And I'm in a cursed world.
  • 00:09:53.100 --> 00:09:55.000
  • I'm in a temptation world.
  • 00:09:55.000 --> 00:09:56.270
  • I'm in a sinful world.
  • 00:09:56.270 --> 00:09:58.180
  • But I follow Jesus.
  • 00:09:58.180 --> 00:10:00.170
  • And when I slip and when I fall,
  • 00:10:00.170 --> 00:10:02.100
  • don't you accuse me.
  • 00:10:02.100 --> 00:10:03.240
  • You couldn't live it
  • 00:10:03.240 --> 00:10:04.240
  • when you were in Heaven,
  • 00:10:04.240 --> 00:10:05.270
  • and I'm living it down here
  • 00:10:05.270 --> 00:10:06.270
  • on earth.
  • 00:10:06.270 --> 00:10:07.270
  • And when I do fall,
  • 00:10:07.270 --> 00:10:09.050
  • I'll come boldly into
  • 00:10:09.050 --> 00:10:11.090
  • the throne of grace -- woo!
  • 00:10:11.090 --> 00:10:13.220
  • And obtain mercy
  • 00:10:13.220 --> 00:10:16.010
  • in the time of need.
  • 00:10:16.010 --> 00:10:18.180
  • Somebody shout grace,
  • 00:10:18.180 --> 00:10:20.010
  • I wanna tell you that,
  • 00:10:30.240 --> 00:10:32.050
  • just like He came when He
  • 00:10:32.050 --> 00:10:33.260
  • found me in my sin,
  • 00:10:34.080 --> 00:10:37.080
  • He comes now that I'm a son.
  • 00:10:38.130 --> 00:10:41.130
  • And He loves me
  • 00:10:41.130 --> 00:10:43.070
  • with the same fervency,
  • 00:10:43.070 --> 00:10:45.110
  • and the same grace,
  • 00:10:45.110 --> 00:10:47.110
  • and the same mercy.
  • 00:10:47.110 --> 00:10:50.000
  • You understand that.
  • 00:10:50.000 --> 00:10:51.250
  • You can live a guilt-free life.
  • 00:10:52.250 --> 00:10:55.250
  • I don't have rules and legalism
  • 00:10:56.170 --> 00:10:59.170
  • or standards
  • 00:10:59.170 --> 00:11:01.220
  • that I have to keep.
  • 00:11:01.220 --> 00:11:04.080
  • I have them not so I'll be saved
  • 00:11:04.260 --> 00:11:07.260
  • if I don't - I won't be saved
  • 00:11:07.260 --> 00:11:09.180
  • if I don't keep them.
  • 00:11:09.180 --> 00:11:11.170
  • I have them because it is
  • 00:11:11.170 --> 00:11:13.210
  • my way of saying you mean
  • 00:11:13.270 --> 00:11:16.270
  • everything to me.
  • 00:11:16.270 --> 00:11:19.110
  • And anything that hinders
  • 00:11:19.110 --> 00:11:21.040
  • my walk with you,
  • 00:11:21.040 --> 00:11:23.100
  • I don't want it
  • 00:11:23.100 --> 00:11:24.140
  • in my life anymore.
  • 00:11:24.230 --> 00:11:27.230
  • And I may have to fight
  • 00:11:27.230 --> 00:11:30.120
  • some things, but you know what?
  • 00:11:30.120 --> 00:11:33.010
  • I will fight it because
  • 00:11:33.010 --> 00:11:34.270
  • I love you,
  • 00:11:34.270 --> 00:11:36.170
  • and I wanna be like you,
  • 00:11:36.170 --> 00:11:38.100
  • and I'm made in your image,
  • 00:11:38.100 --> 00:11:39.190
  • and I won't settle
  • 00:11:39.190 --> 00:11:41.010
  • until I am like you.
  • 00:11:42.040 --> 00:11:45.040
  • So I wanna show you
  • 00:11:50.120 --> 00:11:53.120
  • that condemnation
  • 00:11:53.120 --> 00:11:54.130
  • says you're disqualified.
  • 00:11:54.130 --> 00:11:57.000
  • You're guilty.
  • 00:11:57.000 --> 00:11:57.270
  • You're guilty.
  • 00:11:57.270 --> 00:11:59.050
  • Your heart --
  • 00:11:59.050 --> 00:11:59.280
  • the heart's beating.
  • 00:11:59.280 --> 00:12:01.220
  • And when you do something --
  • 00:12:01.220 --> 00:12:02.220
  • guilty, guilty,
  • 00:12:02.220 --> 00:12:03.270
  • guilty, guilty, guilty.
  • 00:12:03.270 --> 00:12:05.240
  • Unqualified.
  • 00:12:05.240 --> 00:12:06.200
  • Unqualified.
  • 00:12:06.200 --> 00:12:07.240
  • Watch this in John 21.
  • 00:12:07.240 --> 00:12:10.200
  • If anybody had to deal
  • 00:12:10.200 --> 00:12:11.220
  • with condemnation,
  • 00:12:11.220 --> 00:12:13.060
  • it was Simon Peter.
  • 00:12:13.060 --> 00:12:16.020
  • He's the one that denied
  • 00:12:16.020 --> 00:12:17.050
  • Jesus three times,
  • 00:12:17.050 --> 00:12:18.290
  • and the rooster crowed.
  • 00:12:19.160 --> 00:12:22.160
  • And he made this statement.
  • 00:12:22.160 --> 00:12:23.230
  • At some point, it just -
  • 00:12:23.230 --> 00:12:25.050
  • the heart condemned him so bad.
  • 00:12:25.050 --> 00:12:27.050
  • Every time a rooster would --
  • 00:12:27.050 --> 00:12:28.080
  • [crowing]
  • 00:12:28.080 --> 00:12:29.210
  • Every time a rooster would crow,
  • 00:12:32.040 --> 00:12:35.040
  • don't you know his
  • 00:12:35.040 --> 00:12:36.050
  • heart condemned him?
  • 00:12:36.050 --> 00:12:37.220
  • Traitor.
  • 00:12:37.220 --> 00:12:39.130
  • Denier.
  • 00:12:39.130 --> 00:12:41.050
  • Liar.
  • 00:12:41.050 --> 00:12:42.240
  • Pathetic so-called preacher.
  • 00:12:45.060 --> 00:12:48.060
  • But God knows all things.
  • 00:12:48.060 --> 00:12:50.060
  • God didn't see that.
  • 00:12:50.060 --> 00:12:51.290
  • God saw a Pentecostal
  • 00:12:51.290 --> 00:12:53.090
  • preacher in Acts 2.
  • 00:12:54.000 --> 00:12:57.000
  • He saw the man who would
  • 00:12:57.000 --> 00:12:58.050
  • preach the message
  • 00:12:58.050 --> 00:13:01.010
  • that would birth the church.
  • 00:13:01.010 --> 00:13:02.120
  • But Satan was condemning.
  • 00:13:02.250 --> 00:13:05.250
  • The roosters all --
  • 00:13:05.250 --> 00:13:07.000
  • every morning, all afternoon,
  • 00:13:07.000 --> 00:13:09.010
  • just crowing.
  • 00:13:09.010 --> 00:13:10.070
  • And every time, his heart --
  • 00:13:10.070 --> 00:13:12.040
  • unqualified,
  • 00:13:12.040 --> 00:13:13.170
  • unqualified.
  • 00:13:13.170 --> 00:13:14.180
  • Watch this.
  • 00:13:14.180 --> 00:13:15.220
  • He finally had all
  • 00:13:15.220 --> 00:13:16.140
  • he could take.
  • 00:13:16.140 --> 00:13:17.060
  • John 21.
  • 00:13:17.060 --> 00:13:18.020
  • He says I'm done.
  • 00:13:18.020 --> 00:13:19.030
  • I'll go fishing.
  • 00:13:19.150 --> 00:13:22.150
  • I'm going fishing.
  • 00:13:22.150 --> 00:13:23.110
  • I'm going back to what
  • 00:13:23.110 --> 00:13:25.030
  • I used to do.
  • 00:13:25.030 --> 00:13:26.190
  • And here's why this message
  • 00:13:26.190 --> 00:13:27.220
  • is so important.
  • 00:13:27.220 --> 00:13:29.080
  • Because if you start listening
  • 00:13:29.080 --> 00:13:31.050
  • to the voice of condemnation
  • 00:13:31.050 --> 00:13:33.080
  • that says you failed,
  • 00:13:33.080 --> 00:13:34.140
  • therefore you don't earn,
  • 00:13:34.140 --> 00:13:36.100
  • and you don't have
  • 00:13:36.100 --> 00:13:37.060
  • the approval of God
  • 00:13:37.060 --> 00:13:38.130
  • because something you've done
  • 00:13:38.130 --> 00:13:40.060
  • doesn't allow you to have that,
  • 00:13:40.060 --> 00:13:42.200
  • and instead of running to God,
  • 00:13:42.200 --> 00:13:44.210
  • you run from God,
  • 00:13:44.210 --> 00:13:45.260
  • you'll say I'm going fishing.
  • 00:13:45.260 --> 00:13:48.030
  • I'm going back
  • 00:13:48.030 --> 00:13:49.020
  • to what I used to do.
  • 00:13:49.020 --> 00:13:50.060
  • And the thing I wanna show you
  • 00:13:50.060 --> 00:13:51.160
  • is that's exactly what Satan
  • 00:13:51.160 --> 00:13:54.100
  • wants to do with condemnation.
  • 00:13:54.100 --> 00:13:56.020
  • So that you'll quit
  • 00:13:56.020 --> 00:13:57.180
  • and give up on everything
  • 00:13:57.180 --> 00:13:58.260
  • God's promised you.
  • 00:13:58.260 --> 00:13:59.290
  • I'm going fishing.
  • 00:13:59.290 --> 00:14:01.070
  • I'm going back to what
  • 00:14:01.070 --> 00:14:02.020
  • I used to do before I met Jesus.
  • 00:14:02.020 --> 00:14:03.230
  • And then notice this part.
  • 00:14:03.230 --> 00:14:05.030
  • And they said with him,
  • 00:14:05.030 --> 00:14:07.040
  • we're going with you also.
  • 00:14:07.040 --> 00:14:09.050
  • If you go back,
  • 00:14:09.050 --> 00:14:10.150
  • there's some people
  • 00:14:10.150 --> 00:14:11.060
  • that are gonna go back with you.
  • 00:14:11.060 --> 00:14:12.170
  • If you go back to who
  • 00:14:12.170 --> 00:14:13.130
  • you used to be
  • 00:14:13.130 --> 00:14:14.100
  • and what you used to do,
  • 00:14:14.100 --> 00:14:15.160
  • and you start picking up stuff
  • 00:14:15.160 --> 00:14:16.190
  • that you were doing before
  • 00:14:16.190 --> 00:14:18.070
  • you met Jesus,
  • 00:14:18.070 --> 00:14:19.120
  • and now that you've failed Him,
  • 00:14:19.120 --> 00:14:20.260
  • and you've listened to the lie
  • 00:14:20.260 --> 00:14:21.280
  • of the enemy --
  • 00:14:21.280 --> 00:14:22.240
  • that you're not to come to God
  • 00:14:22.240 --> 00:14:23.260
  • when you're weak
  • 00:14:23.260 --> 00:14:24.220
  • in the time of need
  • 00:14:24.220 --> 00:14:25.230
  • but you are further and further,
  • 00:14:25.230 --> 00:14:27.130
  • and condemnation
  • 00:14:27.130 --> 00:14:28.210
  • drives you away --
  • 00:14:28.210 --> 00:14:29.270
  • conviction is always
  • 00:14:29.270 --> 00:14:30.290
  • drawing you nearer,
  • 00:14:30.290 --> 00:14:33.200
  • and you listen to that voice,
  • 00:14:33.200 --> 00:14:35.250
  • not only will you go back
  • 00:14:35.250 --> 00:14:37.170
  • to what you used to do,
  • 00:14:37.170 --> 00:14:38.210
  • but you're gonna take some
  • 00:14:38.210 --> 00:14:39.190
  • people in your family,
  • 00:14:39.190 --> 00:14:40.280
  • some people in your sphere
  • 00:14:40.280 --> 00:14:42.030
  • of influence.
  • 00:14:42.030 --> 00:14:43.150
  • You're gonna take some
  • 00:14:43.150 --> 00:14:44.230
  • Now watch this.
  • 00:14:47.220 --> 00:14:49.230
  • They go out,
  • 00:14:49.230 --> 00:14:50.190
  • and they fish all night,
  • 00:14:50.190 --> 00:14:53.080
  • and they catch nothing.
  • 00:14:53.280 --> 00:14:56.280
  • The next morning as the sun
  • 00:14:56.280 --> 00:14:58.090
  • is rising,
  • 00:14:58.090 --> 00:15:00.190
  • they're getting their empty nets
  • 00:15:00.190 --> 00:15:02.250
  • in and about to call it a night.
  • 00:15:03.120 --> 00:15:06.120
  • And they see a silhouette
  • 00:15:06.120 --> 00:15:08.140
  • as the sun is coming up
  • 00:15:08.140 --> 00:15:09.210
  • behind them of a tall,
  • 00:15:09.210 --> 00:15:12.070
  • lean Galilean.
  • 00:15:12.070 --> 00:15:14.280
  • And He calls out over the water:
  • 00:15:14.280 --> 00:15:17.150
  • did you catch any fish?
  • 00:15:17.250 --> 00:15:20.250
  • And your Bible said that John,
  • 00:15:20.250 --> 00:15:22.210
  • who laid his head
  • 00:15:22.210 --> 00:15:24.230
  • on Jesus' chest, turned to Peter
  • 00:15:26.120 --> 00:15:29.120
  • and said, I know that voice.
  • 00:15:30.110 --> 00:15:33.110
  • Oh, I know that's Him.
  • 00:15:38.010 --> 00:15:41.010
  • That's Him.
  • 00:15:41.010 --> 00:15:43.080
  • How do you know it's Him?
  • 00:15:43.180 --> 00:15:46.180
  • And this isn't in the text,
  • 00:15:46.180 --> 00:15:47.200
  • but it's between the lines.
  • 00:15:49.230 --> 00:15:52.230
  • Can you see John saying,
  • 00:15:52.230 --> 00:15:54.220
  • who else would ever ask you
  • 00:15:54.220 --> 00:15:56.220
  • to try again where you
  • 00:15:56.220 --> 00:15:58.130
  • failed before?
  • 00:15:58.130 --> 00:16:01.120
  • Because He said cast your net
  • 00:16:01.120 --> 00:16:03.030
  • on the other side.
  • 00:16:03.030 --> 00:16:04.120
  • But we tried before,
  • 00:16:04.120 --> 00:16:06.090
  • and we failed.
  • 00:16:06.090 --> 00:16:07.110
  • Only Jesus would tell you
  • 00:16:07.110 --> 00:16:08.170
  • If you failed, try again.
  • 00:16:13.050 --> 00:16:15.260
  • If you messed up, try again.
  • 00:16:15.260 --> 00:16:18.200
  • If you dropped the ball,
  • 00:16:18.200 --> 00:16:20.070
  • try again.
  • 00:16:20.070 --> 00:16:21.230
  • If you messed up,
  • 00:16:21.230 --> 00:16:23.130
  • get up and try again.
  • 00:16:23.130 --> 00:16:25.260
  • Cast your net in the same water,
  • 00:16:25.260 --> 00:16:28.240
  • in the same lake,
  • 00:16:28.240 --> 00:16:30.050
  • in the same spot.
  • 00:16:31.110 --> 00:16:34.110
  • But do it my way.
  • 00:16:35.160 --> 00:16:38.160
  • And the Bible said
  • 00:16:38.160 --> 00:16:39.170
  • their nets were overloaded.
  • 00:16:39.170 --> 00:16:42.030
  • And then Bible said that
  • 00:16:42.030 --> 00:16:44.080
  • Peter jumped into the water
  • 00:16:44.080 --> 00:16:46.110
  • and swam to the bank,
  • 00:16:46.110 --> 00:16:47.270
  • got outta the water,
  • 00:16:47.270 --> 00:16:49.090
  • and went over,
  • 00:16:49.090 --> 00:16:50.120
  • and Jesus was cooking.
  • 00:16:50.120 --> 00:16:52.020
  • Had coals that were hot
  • 00:16:52.020 --> 00:16:53.190
  • and was cooking bread.
  • 00:16:53.190 --> 00:16:55.030
  • And He said, I need some meat.
  • 00:16:55.030 --> 00:16:56.110
  • And he gave Him some fish.
  • 00:16:56.110 --> 00:16:57.140
  • Cooked some fish.
  • 00:16:57.140 --> 00:16:58.150
  • And as he's eating,
  • 00:16:58.150 --> 00:16:59.270
  • Jesus does something strange.
  • 00:16:59.270 --> 00:17:02.010
  • He says to him,
  • 00:17:02.010 --> 00:17:04.050
  • do you love me?
  • 00:17:04.250 --> 00:17:07.250
  • He says -- I believe
  • 00:17:07.250 --> 00:17:09.100
  • at that moment that heart
  • 00:17:09.100 --> 00:17:11.080
  • of condemnation starts saying
  • 00:17:11.080 --> 00:17:12.170
  • uh oh.
  • 00:17:12.170 --> 00:17:14.050
  • He's gonna bring up your past.
  • 00:17:14.050 --> 00:17:16.140
  • He's gonna ask you,
  • 00:17:16.140 --> 00:17:17.110
  • why did you deny me?
  • 00:17:17.110 --> 00:17:18.280
  • He's gonna remind you how bad
  • 00:17:18.280 --> 00:17:20.050
  • you messed up, you liar.
  • 00:17:20.050 --> 00:17:22.010
  • You denier.
  • 00:17:22.010 --> 00:17:23.150
  • Do you love me?
  • 00:17:23.150 --> 00:17:24.120
  • Yes, I love you.
  • 00:17:24.120 --> 00:17:26.000
  • Jesus asked him again,
  • 00:17:26.000 --> 00:17:27.000
  • do you love me?
  • 00:17:27.000 --> 00:17:29.020
  • Yes, I love you.
  • 00:17:29.020 --> 00:17:30.010
  • Jesus asked him a third time,
  • 00:17:30.010 --> 00:17:31.150
  • do you love me?
  • 00:17:31.150 --> 00:17:32.160
  • But this time Peter --
  • 00:17:32.160 --> 00:17:34.180
  • the Bible said his heart --
  • 00:17:34.180 --> 00:17:37.180
  • he was sorrowful.
  • 00:17:37.180 --> 00:17:39.020
  • His heart smote him.
  • 00:17:39.020 --> 00:17:40.100
  • He's sorrowful.
  • 00:17:40.100 --> 00:17:42.040
  • And then he makes
  • 00:17:42.040 --> 00:17:42.260
  • this statement.
  • 00:17:42.260 --> 00:17:44.240
  • He was grieved,
  • 00:17:44.240 --> 00:17:45.220
  • and he said Lord --
  • 00:17:45.220 --> 00:17:47.100
  • watch this --
  • 00:17:48.010 --> 00:17:51.010
  • you know all things.
  • 00:17:51.010 --> 00:17:53.290
  • Jesus says, that's exactly
  • 00:17:54.140 --> 00:17:57.140
  • the answer I was waiting on.
  • 00:17:57.140 --> 00:17:59.130
  • I believe John was sitting
  • 00:17:59.130 --> 00:18:00.120
  • over there with an ink pen,
  • 00:18:00.120 --> 00:18:02.070
  • saying you know all things.
  • 00:18:02.070 --> 00:18:04.110
  • I'm gonna write a book
  • 00:18:04.110 --> 00:18:05.070
  • If your heart condemns you,
  • 00:18:12.180 --> 00:18:15.180
  • God is greater than your heart
  • 00:18:15.180 --> 00:18:17.070
  • for He knows all things.
  • 00:18:17.070 --> 00:18:18.280
  • In other words, Jesus was saying
  • 00:18:18.280 --> 00:18:20.110
  • I wanted you to get
  • 00:18:20.110 --> 00:18:21.130
  • the revelation that I knew
  • 00:18:21.130 --> 00:18:23.030
  • you didn't mean it.
  • 00:18:23.030 --> 00:18:24.030
  • I knew you didn't mean to lie.
  • 00:18:24.030 --> 00:18:25.250
  • I knew you didn't mean to deny.
  • 00:18:25.250 --> 00:18:27.130
  • I knew deep
  • 00:18:27.130 --> 00:18:28.130
  • in your heart of hearts,
  • 00:18:28.130 --> 00:18:29.110
  • even though you did a deed
  • 00:18:29.110 --> 00:18:30.200
  • that failed me,
  • 00:18:30.200 --> 00:18:31.220
  • I don't throw you away
  • 00:18:31.220 --> 00:18:33.240
  • because I know
  • 00:18:33.240 --> 00:18:35.010
  • in your heart of hearts
  • 00:18:35.010 --> 00:18:36.120
  • you wanna be like me.
  • 00:18:36.120 --> 00:18:37.270
  • I know ultimate -- listen.
  • 00:18:37.270 --> 00:18:39.280
  • He knows all things,
  • 00:18:39.280 --> 00:18:41.110
  • which means He knew that
  • 00:18:41.110 --> 00:18:42.290
  • the failure that everybody
  • 00:18:42.290 --> 00:18:44.060
  • else saw would be so strong
  • 00:18:44.060 --> 00:18:46.080
  • one day that he would refuse
  • 00:18:46.080 --> 00:18:48.080
  • to be crucified upright.
  • 00:18:48.080 --> 00:18:50.250
  • He would request to be crucified
  • 00:18:50.250 --> 00:18:52.270
  • upside down.
  • 00:18:52.270 --> 00:18:54.200
  • Your Bible says that.
  • 00:18:54.200 --> 00:18:56.060
  • But he was not going
  • 00:18:56.060 --> 00:18:57.190
  • to deny Jesus.
  • 00:18:57.190 --> 00:18:58.200
  • He said I'm not worthy
  • 00:18:58.200 --> 00:18:59.270
  • to be crucified like He was.
  • 00:18:59.270 --> 00:19:01.120
  • Crucify me upside down.
  • 00:19:03.160 --> 00:19:06.160
  • And Jesus knew all things.
  • 00:19:06.160 --> 00:19:08.030
  • Jesus knew you're not
  • 00:19:08.030 --> 00:19:09.080
  • a piece of trash.
  • 00:19:09.080 --> 00:19:11.110
  • That's not who you are.
  • 00:19:11.110 --> 00:19:12.130
  • I'm gonna use you
  • 00:19:12.130 --> 00:19:13.150
  • on the Day of Pentecost.
  • 00:19:13.150 --> 00:19:14.150
  • Now watch this.
  • 00:19:14.150 --> 00:19:15.060
  • Go forward.
  • 00:19:15.060 --> 00:19:15.270
  • You move into Acts 2.
  • 00:19:18.100 --> 00:19:20.180
  • The Holy Spirit fills
  • 00:19:20.180 --> 00:19:22.000
  • the Upper Room and fills 120.
  • 00:19:22.000 --> 00:19:24.280
  • They spill out into the streets,
  • 00:19:25.080 --> 00:19:28.080
  • and Simon Peter begins to preach
  • 00:19:28.080 --> 00:19:30.110
  • under the anointing.
  • 00:19:30.110 --> 00:19:32.110
  • And he says to the people
  • 00:19:32.110 --> 00:19:33.290
  • who crucified Him and who
  • 00:19:33.290 --> 00:19:35.090
  • were screaming crucify Him --
  • 00:19:35.090 --> 00:19:36.260
  • he says to the same people,
  • 00:19:36.260 --> 00:19:39.040
  • you crucified Him,
  • 00:19:39.040 --> 00:19:41.070
  • but God has raised Him
  • 00:19:41.070 --> 00:19:42.280
  • and made Him Lord and Christ.
  • 00:19:44.080 --> 00:19:47.080
  • And the Bible said in Acts 2:37,
  • 00:19:48.150 --> 00:19:51.150
  • and they were --
  • 00:19:51.150 --> 00:19:52.130
  • watch the wording,
  • 00:19:52.130 --> 00:19:53.180
  • pricked in their heart.
  • 00:19:55.030 --> 00:19:58.030
  • They felt condemnation.
  • 00:19:58.030 --> 00:20:00.220
  • Condemned in their heart.
  • 00:20:01.110 --> 00:20:04.110
  • We killed Him.
  • 00:20:04.110 --> 00:20:05.290
  • Now it's one thing for us to say
  • 00:20:05.290 --> 00:20:07.150
  • I failed Him,
  • 00:20:07.150 --> 00:20:08.130
  • but I don't have His blood
  • 00:20:08.130 --> 00:20:11.070
  • on my hands literally.
  • 00:20:11.070 --> 00:20:13.020
  • I don't -- they literally
  • 00:20:13.020 --> 00:20:15.050
  • had His blood on their hands.
  • 00:20:15.050 --> 00:20:17.140
  • They said His blood be on us
  • 00:20:17.140 --> 00:20:19.090
  • and on our children.
  • 00:20:19.090 --> 00:20:21.240
  • We wanna crucify Him.
  • 00:20:22.100 --> 00:20:25.100
  • And they were pricked
  • 00:20:25.100 --> 00:20:26.090
  • in their heart.
  • 00:20:26.090 --> 00:20:27.050
  • And their heart began
  • 00:20:27.050 --> 00:20:27.290
  • to scream,
  • 00:20:27.290 --> 00:20:28.230
  • guilty, guilty, guilty.
  • 00:20:28.230 --> 00:20:30.260
  • You crucified Him.
  • 00:20:30.260 --> 00:20:32.040
  • You killed Him.
  • 00:20:32.040 --> 00:20:33.150
  • And they are saying
  • 00:20:33.150 --> 00:20:34.140
  • to Simon Peter,
  • 00:20:34.140 --> 00:20:35.160
  • is there any hope
  • 00:20:35.160 --> 00:20:36.240
  • for somebody like me?
  • 00:20:38.100 --> 00:20:41.100
  • And Peter says oh,
  • 00:20:41.100 --> 00:20:43.040
  • if you only knew the guy who's
  • 00:20:43.040 --> 00:20:44.230
  • preaching had a heart
  • 00:20:45.280 --> 00:20:48.280
  • that condemned him.
  • 00:20:48.280 --> 00:20:50.290
  • Lemme introduce you
  • 00:20:50.290 --> 00:20:51.290
  • to the Savior.
  • 00:20:51.290 --> 00:20:53.250
  • That if your heart condemns you,
  • 00:20:53.250 --> 00:20:56.060
  • He's greater than your heart,
  • 00:20:56.060 --> 00:20:58.170
  • and He knows all things.
  • 00:20:58.170 --> 00:21:01.110
  • He knows you really wanna
  • 00:21:01.110 --> 00:21:02.150
  • be free from that thing.
  • 00:21:02.150 --> 00:21:04.070
  • He knows you really want
  • 00:21:04.070 --> 00:21:05.140
  • to stop.
  • 00:21:05.140 --> 00:21:06.140
  • He knows you really want
  • 00:21:06.140 --> 00:21:07.260
  • a new life.
  • 00:21:07.260 --> 00:21:09.010
  • He knows.
  • 00:21:09.010 --> 00:21:09.280
  • He doesn't see you as you are.
  • 00:21:09.280 --> 00:21:12.120
  • He sees you, and He puts out
  • 00:21:12.120 --> 00:21:14.010
  • a bloody welcome-home mat.
  • 00:21:15.000 --> 00:21:18.000
  • And He says come boldly
  • 00:21:19.010 --> 00:21:22.010
  • for mercy and grace.
  • 00:21:22.010 --> 00:21:23.090
  • Not when you're doing good.
  • 00:21:23.090 --> 00:21:24.240
  • Not if you've had the greatest
  • 00:21:24.240 --> 00:21:26.010
  • week and your willpower
  • 00:21:26.010 --> 00:21:27.180
  • has carried you without
  • 00:21:27.180 --> 00:21:28.210
  • one time touching that thing.
  • 00:21:29.160 --> 00:21:32.160
  • Come in the time of need.
  • 00:21:33.120 --> 00:21:36.120
  • Boldly.
  • 00:21:36.120 --> 00:21:37.090
  • That's the key.
  • 00:21:37.090 --> 00:21:38.020
  • Boldly.
  • 00:21:38.020 --> 00:21:40.000
  • With full confidence
  • 00:21:40.000 --> 00:21:41.090
  • in the blood of the Lamb.
  • 00:21:42.180 --> 00:21:45.180
  • And I close with this verse.
  • 00:21:45.180 --> 00:21:46.270
  • Psalms 51 said when my heart
  • 00:21:50.210 --> 00:21:53.210
  • is overwhelmed --
  • 00:21:53.210 --> 00:21:56.010
  • guilty, guilty, guilty.
  • 00:21:56.010 --> 00:21:58.230
  • Quit, quit, quit.
  • 00:21:58.230 --> 00:22:00.210
  • Condemn, condemn, condemn.
  • 00:22:00.210 --> 00:22:02.290
  • When my heart is overwhelmed,
  • 00:22:03.080 --> 00:22:06.080
  • lead me to the rock.
  • 00:22:06.210 --> 00:22:09.210
  • The one who's greater
  • 00:22:09.210 --> 00:22:10.210
  • than my heart
  • 00:22:10.240 --> 00:22:13.240
  • and knows all things.
  • 00:22:13.240 --> 00:22:15.290
  • Lead me to the rock
  • 00:22:15.290 --> 00:22:17.100
  • that is higher than I.
  • 00:22:17.100 --> 00:22:19.010
  • Romans 8 said there is now
  • 00:22:19.230 --> 00:22:22.230
  • therefore no condemnation
  • 00:22:24.190 --> 00:22:27.190
  • to those who
  • 00:22:27.190 --> 00:22:28.260
  • are in Christ Jesus.
  • 00:22:28.260 --> 00:22:31.010
  • Who do not walk according
  • 00:22:31.010 --> 00:22:32.210
  • to the flesh,
  • 00:22:32.210 --> 00:22:35.040
  • listening to their heart,
  • 00:22:35.040 --> 00:22:37.050
  • but according to the spirit
  • 00:22:37.050 --> 00:22:39.270
  • and what Jesus has done
  • 00:22:39.270 --> 00:22:42.120
  • by His blood and His name.
  • 00:22:42.120 --> 00:22:44.060
  • Did you catch it?
  • 00:22:44.060 --> 00:22:45.260
  • Did you catch it in my text?
  • 00:22:45.260 --> 00:22:47.150
  • He said if you keep
  • 00:22:47.150 --> 00:22:49.280
  • my commandments,
  • 00:22:49.280 --> 00:22:50.270
  • you can ask boldly.
  • 00:22:50.270 --> 00:22:52.010
  • And then He says,
  • 00:22:52.010 --> 00:22:52.280
  • what is my commandment?
  • 00:22:52.280 --> 00:22:54.100
  • That you believe on the name
  • 00:22:54.100 --> 00:22:55.150
  • of the Lord Jesus Christ,
  • 00:22:55.150 --> 00:22:57.150
  • and that you love one another,
  • 00:22:57.150 --> 00:22:59.120
  • and you fulfill the law.
  • 00:22:59.120 --> 00:23:02.030
  • That you believe on the name
  • 00:23:02.030 --> 00:23:03.170
  • of the Lord Jesus Christ,
  • 00:23:03.170 --> 00:23:05.000
  • and that you love one another,
  • 00:23:05.030 --> 00:23:08.030
  • and you fulfill the law.
  • 00:23:09.060 --> 00:23:12.060
  • It's pretty powerful,
  • 00:23:12.060 --> 00:23:13.000
  • isn't it?
  • 00:23:13.000 --> 00:23:14.140
  • We have put so many things
  • 00:23:14.140 --> 00:23:16.230
  • on the gospel,
  • 00:23:16.230 --> 00:23:18.100
  • when the truth is,
  • 00:23:18.100 --> 00:23:19.130
  • that is the gospel.
  • 00:23:20.220 --> 00:23:23.220
  • And we are to receive His
  • 00:23:23.220 --> 00:23:25.120
  • amazing mercy, and grace,
  • 00:23:25.120 --> 00:23:27.180
  • and love.
  • 00:23:27.180 --> 00:23:29.100
  • Because when your heart
  • 00:23:29.100 --> 00:23:31.130
  • is overwhelmed with guilt,
  • 00:23:31.170 --> 00:23:34.170
  • failure, condemnation,
  • 00:23:36.120 --> 00:23:39.120
  • you can go to the rock that is
  • 00:23:39.120 --> 00:23:41.040
  • higher than your heart.
  • 00:23:41.040 --> 00:23:44.000
  • And His name is Jesus.
  • 00:23:44.000 --> 00:23:46.080
  • Do you believe that?
  • 00:23:46.080 --> 00:23:48.100
  • Do you receive that?
  • 00:23:48.110 --> 00:23:51.110
  • Isn't that good news?
  • 00:23:51.140 --> 00:23:54.140
  • - In our closing moments
  • 00:24:02.200 --> 00:24:03.230
  • of this program,
  • 00:24:03.230 --> 00:24:04.290

  • a humbling opportunity
  • 00:24:06.040 --> 00:24:08.170
  • that we have to bless
  • 00:24:08.170 --> 00:24:10.080
  • God's chosen people
  • 00:24:10.080 --> 00:24:11.250
  • and God's chosen land;
  • 00:24:11.250 --> 00:24:13.140
  • the nation of Israel.
  • 00:24:13.140 --> 00:24:15.180
  • Recently, I traveled there
  • 00:24:15.180 --> 00:24:17.080
  • and visited multiple locations
  • 00:24:17.080 --> 00:24:20.000
  • where many Jewish men, women,
  • 00:24:20.000 --> 00:24:21.270
  • and children were facing
  • 00:24:21.270 --> 00:24:23.220
  • horrific circumstances.
  • 00:24:23.220 --> 00:24:26.070
  • Because of terrorism,
  • 00:24:26.070 --> 00:24:27.230
  • their lives have been
  • 00:24:27.230 --> 00:24:28.210
  • forever changed.
  • 00:24:28.210 --> 00:24:30.130
  • In one place we went,
  • 00:24:30.130 --> 00:24:31.270
  • they were being attacked
  • 00:24:31.270 --> 00:24:33.090
  • over, and over, and over.
  • 00:24:33.090 --> 00:24:34.210
  • Missiles were falling,
  • 00:24:34.210 --> 00:24:36.130
  • and fires were being started
  • 00:24:36.130 --> 00:24:38.130
  • because of the dryness
  • 00:24:38.130 --> 00:24:40.060
  • of the season,
  • 00:24:40.060 --> 00:24:42.030
  • things can be ignited,
  • 00:24:42.030 --> 00:24:44.200
  • and blown up,
  • 00:24:44.200 --> 00:24:46.000
  • and destroyed within
  • 00:24:46.000 --> 00:24:47.070
  • a matter of hours.
  • 00:24:47.070 --> 00:24:49.030
  • And they need comfort.
  • 00:24:49.030 --> 00:24:50.250
  • They don't just
  • 00:24:50.250 --> 00:24:51.140
  • need our prayers,

  • they need our support
  • 00:24:53.010 --> 00:24:54.220
