  • 00:00:05.100 --> 00:00:07.030
  • (Beth Moore) I am so full of joy this morning.
  • 00:00:08.150 --> 00:00:10.250
  • Anybody else got a little joy on 'em today?
  • 00:00:10.260 --> 00:00:15.270
  • We're gonna lift it up
  • 00:00:15.280 --> 00:00:17.150
  • and let the name of Jesus go forth in this place
  • 00:00:17.160 --> 00:00:21.140
  • in such power and in such presence.
  • 00:00:21.150 --> 00:00:24.270
  • We are so, so thrilled to be with you.
  • 00:00:24.280 --> 00:00:29.040
  • And I think what God's gonna remind us of today
  • 00:00:29.050 --> 00:00:32.030
  • is that we're in the middle of the story.
  • 00:00:32.040 --> 00:00:35.220
  • Do you not think that he's gonna tie up
  • 00:00:35.230 --> 00:00:37.120
  • every thread where you are concerned,
  • 00:00:37.130 --> 00:00:40.190
  • that he who started the plan knows how to end it?
  • 00:00:40.200 --> 00:00:45.100
  • We're gonna get some confidence in him today
  • 00:00:45.110 --> 00:00:48.090
  • in his ability to always bring something to a good finish.
  • 00:00:48.100 --> 00:00:54.120
  • Can somebody say, "Hallelujah"?
  • 00:00:54.130 --> 00:00:56.250
  • There's nothing, no sin, no transgression
  • 00:00:56.260 --> 00:01:00.020
  • that exceeds the power of the cross.
  • 00:01:01.150 --> 00:01:03.260
  • Thank you, God.
  • 00:01:03.270 --> 00:01:05.240
  • Anybody in the house just really tired
  • 00:01:06.280 --> 00:01:12.040
  • of your pattern defining your person?
  • 00:01:12.050 --> 00:01:17.080
  • Because you and I are gonna discuss
  • 00:01:17.090 --> 00:01:19.110
  • what it is that defines us,
  • 00:01:19.120 --> 00:01:23.080
  • because if you can get down to what defines you,
  • 00:01:23.090 --> 00:01:27.200
  • you will be able to discover what is motivating
  • 00:01:27.210 --> 00:01:32.040
  • many, many decisions.
  • 00:01:32.050 --> 00:01:34.190
  • 00:01:36.130 --> 00:01:43.120
  • 00:01:43.130 --> 00:01:47.120
  • Would you turn with me to the book of Ephesians
  • 00:01:47.130 --> 00:01:49.200
  • and the 5th chapter.
  • 00:01:49.210 --> 00:01:51.010
  • You and I are going to be quite a bit in the books of Ephesians
  • 00:01:51.020 --> 00:01:55.160
  • and Colossians.
  • 00:01:55.170 --> 00:01:57.000
  • The books are similar in many ways,
  • 00:01:57.010 --> 00:02:00.150
  • Paul telling the churches in Ephesus and Colossae
  • 00:02:00.160 --> 00:02:05.250
  • some of the very same things.
  • 00:02:05.260 --> 00:02:08.280
  • Now, Ephesians is going to be two chapters longer,
  • 00:02:08.290 --> 00:02:12.190
  • so obviously he has a lot more that he's gonna say
  • 00:02:12.200 --> 00:02:15.260
  • to the church of Ephesus than the four chapters
  • 00:02:15.270 --> 00:02:18.220
  • that you would find in the book of Colossians,
  • 00:02:18.230 --> 00:02:21.040
  • but there are portions of it that we are gonna camp on
  • 00:02:21.050 --> 00:02:24.260
  • that are gonna show us our theme and that are very similar
  • 00:02:24.270 --> 00:02:28.220
  • between the two, but said just differently enough
  • 00:02:28.230 --> 00:02:31.230
  • to be spectacular and gorgeous.
  • 00:02:31.240 --> 00:02:34.190
  • Ephesians chapter 5:8-10 that say these words,
  • 00:02:34.200 --> 00:02:40.060
  • "For at one time you were darkness,
  • 00:02:40.070 --> 00:02:44.010
  • "but now you are light in the Lord.
  • 00:02:44.020 --> 00:02:47.010
  • "Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found
  • 00:02:47.020 --> 00:02:50.120
  • in all that is good and right and true)."
  • 00:02:50.130 --> 00:02:53.190
  • Is that gorgeous?
  • 00:02:53.200 --> 00:02:57.000
  • The fruit of light, if you wanna know where is it,
  • 00:02:57.010 --> 00:03:00.250
  • that I want my life to be--do you want it to be good
  • 00:03:00.260 --> 00:03:03.120
  • and right and true?
  • 00:03:03.130 --> 00:03:05.100
  • Because that's fruit of the light,
  • 00:03:05.110 --> 00:03:07.220
  • and it says, "And try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord,"
  • 00:03:07.230 --> 00:03:11.260
  • for at one time you were this,
  • 00:03:11.270 --> 00:03:15.190
  • but now you are this.
  • 00:03:15.200 --> 00:03:22.130
  • Colossians. You're very close to it.
  • 00:03:22.140 --> 00:03:24.210
  • Would you go with me now to Colossians 1,
  • 00:03:24.220 --> 00:03:27.140
  • verses 21 and 22?
  • 00:03:27.150 --> 00:03:30.030
  • "And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind,
  • 00:03:30.040 --> 00:03:34.100
  • "doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled
  • 00:03:34.110 --> 00:03:37.250
  • "in his body of flesh by his death,
  • 00:03:37.260 --> 00:03:40.190
  • "in order to present you holy and blameless
  • 00:03:40.200 --> 00:03:44.150
  • and above reproach before him."
  • 00:03:44.160 --> 00:03:46.230
  • I have to go ahead and read 23 because it just must be read.
  • 00:03:46.240 --> 00:03:50.100
  • "If indeed you continue in the faith,
  • 00:03:50.110 --> 00:03:52.170
  • "stable and steadfast,
  • 00:03:52.180 --> 00:03:53.290
  • "not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard,
  • 00:03:54.000 --> 00:03:56.150
  • "which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven,
  • 00:03:56.160 --> 00:03:59.050
  • and of which I, Paul, became a minister."
  • 00:03:59.060 --> 00:04:02.000
  • Look back at 21.
  • 00:04:02.010 --> 00:04:03.120
  • "And you, who once were this."
  • 00:04:03.130 --> 00:04:06.200
  • Verse 22, "He has now this."
  • 00:04:06.210 --> 00:04:13.150
  • In Christ, we've been completely redefined.
  • 00:04:13.160 --> 00:04:20.070
  • The more we realize that, the more we live out of that,
  • 00:04:20.080 --> 00:04:24.080
  • because what we are most convinced defines us,
  • 00:04:24.090 --> 00:04:28.150
  • is what will most motivate our decisions
  • 00:04:28.160 --> 00:04:32.220
  • and most motivate the things that we do
  • 00:04:32.230 --> 00:04:35.260
  • and our behaviors and our attitudes
  • 00:04:35.270 --> 00:04:39.050
  • and aspects about things.
  • 00:04:39.060 --> 00:04:42.080
  • It matters not just that it is true,
  • 00:04:42.090 --> 00:04:46.290
  • but that we know that it is true.
  • 00:04:47.000 --> 00:04:50.190
  • That we have been wholly and completely redefined.
  • 00:04:50.200 --> 00:04:53.180
  • Now, let's think about in worldly terms
  • 00:04:53.190 --> 00:04:56.190
  • and in the English language what it means
  • 00:04:56.200 --> 00:04:59.150
  • for something to be redefined.
  • 00:04:59.160 --> 00:05:01.250
  • Okay, for instance, the word "nice."
  • 00:05:01.260 --> 00:05:04.220
  • You may or may not know that the word used to mean
  • 00:05:04.230 --> 00:05:07.140
  • "silly, foolish, and simple."
  • 00:05:07.150 --> 00:05:10.210
  • It was not anywhere close to the compliment
  • 00:05:10.220 --> 00:05:13.010
  • when we say, "She is such a nice person."
  • 00:05:13.020 --> 00:05:15.180
  • That truly meant she is an idiot,
  • 00:05:15.190 --> 00:05:21.110
  • so be careful if someone from this event
  • 00:05:21.120 --> 00:05:24.130
  • introduces you later to someone and says,
  • 00:05:24.140 --> 00:05:26.220
  • "Oh, listen. You are gonna love her.
  • 00:05:26.230 --> 00:05:28.250
  • She is the nicest person."
  • 00:05:28.260 --> 00:05:30.230
  • You know. You know.
  • 00:05:30.240 --> 00:05:34.070
  • On the opposite end of the spectrum
  • 00:05:34.080 --> 00:05:36.060
  • is the word "silly."
  • 00:05:36.070 --> 00:05:38.010
  • Well, "silly," in its earliest use,
  • 00:05:38.020 --> 00:05:41.000
  • meant things that were worthy or blessed
  • 00:05:41.010 --> 00:05:44.270
  • and then it sorta slid into meaning
  • 00:05:44.280 --> 00:05:48.140
  • that which was weak and vulnerable
  • 00:05:48.150 --> 00:05:51.020
  • and then more recently into what was purely foolish.
  • 00:05:51.030 --> 00:05:55.190
  • How about "awful"?
  • 00:05:55.200 --> 00:05:57.000
  • You probably know this one.
  • 00:05:57.010 --> 00:05:58.210
  • Awful.
  • 00:05:58.220 --> 00:06:00.030
  • Awful things used to be things that were worthy of awe.
  • 00:06:00.040 --> 00:06:03.130
  • You can hear it every time you say the word.
  • 00:06:03.140 --> 00:06:05.120
  • "It was just awful."
  • 00:06:05.130 --> 00:06:06.260
  • That meant that I was full of awe over it.
  • 00:06:06.270 --> 00:06:11.090
  • That's why there would be sayings.
  • 00:06:11.100 --> 00:06:12.230
  • If you read some of the old, old, old books
  • 00:06:12.240 --> 00:06:16.130
  • of the saints in Christ
  • 00:06:16.140 --> 00:06:18.150
  • you might see them refer to the awful majesty of God.
  • 00:06:18.160 --> 00:06:24.080
  • They didn't mean it was terrible.
  • 00:06:24.090 --> 00:06:26.210
  • They meant that it was something that would strike awe in you,
  • 00:06:26.220 --> 00:06:32.020
  • the word "awful."
  • 00:06:32.030 --> 00:06:33.240
  • The word "fizzle."
  • 00:06:33.250 --> 00:06:35.060
  • Now, I don't know if this will make the cut to TV or not,
  • 00:06:35.070 --> 00:06:38.240
  • but I just think you ought to know that the verb "fizzle"
  • 00:06:38.250 --> 00:06:43.020
  • once referred to the act of producing quiet flatulence.
  • 00:06:43.030 --> 00:06:48.150
  • See, you did not know this when you came.
  • 00:06:54.030 --> 00:06:58.250
  • Some of you thought, "Why have I even come this weekend?"
  • 00:06:58.260 --> 00:07:01.150
  • There you go.
  • 00:07:01.160 --> 00:07:03.110
  • You did not know what to call that and now you do.
  • 00:07:03.120 --> 00:07:07.120
  • And American college slang flipped the word's meaning:
  • 00:07:07.130 --> 00:07:11.090
  • to refer to failing at things.
  • 00:07:11.100 --> 00:07:14.090
  • Meat. This is the last one.
  • 00:07:14.100 --> 00:07:16.080
  • Meat meant anything solid.
  • 00:07:16.090 --> 00:07:19.020
  • It did not mean animal protein.
  • 00:07:19.030 --> 00:07:22.000
  • These are words that changed in definition.
  • 00:07:22.010 --> 00:07:27.080
  • These are words that were, over the course of time,
  • 00:07:27.090 --> 00:07:31.050
  • redefined.
  • 00:07:31.060 --> 00:07:32.270
  • Now, I wanna do something.
  • 00:07:32.280 --> 00:07:34.070
  • I found this interesting in my studies preparing for you.
  • 00:07:34.080 --> 00:07:37.200
  • I found it interesting to just look up
  • 00:07:37.210 --> 00:07:39.250
  • what the word "define" means.
  • 00:07:39.260 --> 00:07:42.100
  • I would love to have just looked up "redefine,"
  • 00:07:42.110 --> 00:07:44.180
  • but re- just means do it again, so just define.
  • 00:07:44.190 --> 00:07:50.010
  • I wanna bring it up on the screen,
  • 00:07:50.020 --> 00:07:51.160
  • and I want you to look through it a little bit with me
  • 00:07:51.170 --> 00:07:53.170
  • so that you can let it lock down,
  • 00:07:53.180 --> 00:07:55.090
  • because through the course of our time together parts of it
  • 00:07:55.100 --> 00:07:58.000
  • are gonna jump out of that definition
  • 00:07:58.010 --> 00:08:00.270
  • and into our study of the Scriptures.
  • 00:08:00.280 --> 00:08:03.190
  • Look at the word that it comes from in Latin:
  • 00:08:03.200 --> 00:08:07.100
  • definire from finire, which means to limit or to end.
  • 00:08:07.110 --> 00:08:11.250
  • Finis is a boundary or an end, so by--the very virtue
  • 00:08:11.260 --> 00:08:17.040
  • of the word meant to limit something into something
  • 00:08:17.050 --> 00:08:21.120
  • you could somehow define.
  • 00:08:21.130 --> 00:08:23.150
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:08:23.160 --> 00:08:24.280
  • You can see it all over it: to determine
  • 00:08:24.290 --> 00:08:27.060
  • or identify essential qualities or meaning of,
  • 00:08:27.070 --> 00:08:29.260
  • to discover and set forth the meaning of,
  • 00:08:29.270 --> 00:08:32.050
  • to fix or mark the limits of, to demarcate,
  • 00:08:32.060 --> 00:08:35.080
  • to make distinct, clear, and detailed,
  • 00:08:35.090 --> 00:08:38.000
  • especially in outline.
  • 00:08:38.010 --> 00:08:39.100
  • And then, that third meaning: characterize or distinguish.
  • 00:08:39.110 --> 00:08:42.210
  • This is all out of "Merriam-Webster's
  • 00:08:42.220 --> 00:08:44.130
  • Collegiate Dictionary."
  • 00:08:44.140 --> 00:08:47.010
  • Define.
  • 00:08:47.020 --> 00:08:49.030
  • In the Scriptures it didn't happen over time.
  • 00:08:49.040 --> 00:08:53.090
  • In the moment that you were reborn in Christ
  • 00:08:53.100 --> 00:08:56.130
  • and in the moment
  • 00:08:56.140 --> 00:08:57.230
  • that I was reborn in Christ we were instantly,
  • 00:08:57.240 --> 00:09:03.110
  • completely, and wholly redefined.
  • 00:09:03.120 --> 00:09:09.000
  • Now, I want you to do something with me.
  • 00:09:10.170 --> 00:09:12.080
  • I want you to think of some words
  • 00:09:12.090 --> 00:09:15.160
  • that can become defining:
  • 00:09:15.170 --> 00:09:17.200
  • divorced, widowed,
  • 00:09:17.210 --> 00:09:23.180
  • single, married,
  • 00:09:23.190 --> 00:09:26.130
  • black, white, brown,
  • 00:09:26.140 --> 00:09:30.010
  • senator, janitor, recovering alcoholic.
  • 00:09:30.020 --> 00:09:33.270
  • Here is a big one: mentally ill,
  • 00:09:33.280 --> 00:09:36.280
  • cancer patient, doctor, teacher,
  • 00:09:36.290 --> 00:09:39.210
  • student, criminal,
  • 00:09:39.220 --> 00:09:44.070
  • felon, felon.
  • 00:09:44.080 --> 00:09:50.060
  • In a terribly dark and foolish time somebody here cheated
  • 00:09:50.070 --> 00:09:53.150
  • on her spouse and that definition, adulteress,
  • 00:09:53.160 --> 00:09:59.150
  • just keeps ringing in your head.
  • 00:09:59.160 --> 00:10:04.050
  • Or let's swing on the same vine another direction,
  • 00:10:04.060 --> 00:10:07.280
  • such as success.
  • 00:10:07.290 --> 00:10:09.100
  • That you define yourself by your stocks portfolio,
  • 00:10:09.110 --> 00:10:15.160
  • oh, you done good,
  • 00:10:15.170 --> 00:10:19.250
  • and you like your definition,
  • 00:10:19.260 --> 00:10:24.070
  • and it's not good news to you tonight that that ain't it,
  • 00:10:24.080 --> 00:10:30.080
  • because the Scriptures would say in the words of the apostle Paul
  • 00:10:33.050 --> 00:10:37.200
  • all of that is nothing but dung
  • 00:10:37.210 --> 00:10:43.210
  • compared to the excellency
  • 00:10:43.220 --> 00:10:47.170
  • of knowing Christ Jesus our Lord.
  • 00:10:47.180 --> 00:10:51.220
  • Colossians chapter 3.
  • 00:10:51.230 --> 00:10:53.090
  • I wanna verses 9 through 12 to you.
  • 00:10:53.100 --> 00:10:56.010
  • "Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off
  • 00:10:56.020 --> 00:11:00.050
  • "the old self with its practices and have put on the new self,
  • 00:11:00.060 --> 00:11:05.160
  • "which is being renewed in knowledge
  • 00:11:05.170 --> 00:11:07.100
  • "after the image of its creator.
  • 00:11:07.110 --> 00:11:08.220
  • "Here there is not Greek and Jew,
  • 00:11:08.230 --> 00:11:10.280
  • "circumcised and uncircumcised,
  • 00:11:10.290 --> 00:11:13.060
  • "barbarian, Scythian, slave, free;
  • 00:11:13.070 --> 00:11:15.020
  • but Christ is all, and in all."
  • 00:11:15.030 --> 00:11:17.130
  • In other words, none of the rest of those labels matter here.
  • 00:11:17.140 --> 00:11:22.170
  • Galatians has a whole different set of labels that it says,
  • 00:11:22.180 --> 00:11:26.250
  • "This is not what it's based on anymore."
  • 00:11:26.260 --> 00:11:30.070
  • We are children of God,
  • 00:11:30.080 --> 00:11:32.020
  • and we have been completely redefined,
  • 00:11:32.030 --> 00:11:35.030
  • and it says in verse 12, "Put on then,
  • 00:11:35.040 --> 00:11:37.150
  • "as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved,
  • 00:11:37.160 --> 00:11:40.110
  • "compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness,
  • 00:11:40.120 --> 00:11:44.180
  • and patience, bearing with one another," in love,
  • 00:11:44.190 --> 00:11:47.100
  • "and, if one has a complaint against another,
  • 00:11:47.110 --> 00:11:49.120
  • "forgiving each other;
  • 00:11:49.130 --> 00:11:50.220
  • "as the Lord has forgiven you, you must also forgive.
  • 00:11:50.230 --> 00:11:53.090
  • "And above all these put on love,
  • 00:11:53.100 --> 00:11:56.150
  • which binds everything together in perfect harmony."
  • 00:11:56.160 --> 00:12:02.230
  • Chosen.
  • 00:12:02.240 --> 00:12:04.190
  • Holy.
  • 00:12:04.200 --> 00:12:06.150
  • Beloved.
  • 00:12:06.160 --> 00:12:09.030
  • I am chosen,
  • 00:12:09.040 --> 00:12:11.150
  • I am holy, and I am beloved.
  • 00:12:11.160 --> 00:12:15.100
  • You are--tell me three things that you are.
  • 00:12:15.110 --> 00:12:17.140
  • The first one is what?
  • 00:12:17.150 --> 00:12:19.210
  • The second one?
  • 00:12:19.220 --> 00:12:21.130
  • And what is the third one?
  • 00:12:21.140 --> 00:12:23.080
  • Now--so, I have spent the whole week so fascinated by this,
  • 00:12:23.090 --> 00:12:27.070
  • because I want you to think with me and be thinking tonight
  • 00:12:27.080 --> 00:12:30.070
  • and be thinking tomorrow, think all next week,
  • 00:12:30.080 --> 00:12:32.190
  • you just think about the breadth that those three words cover.
  • 00:12:32.200 --> 00:12:37.040
  • Just let this sink into you.
  • 00:12:37.050 --> 00:12:39.170
  • That if you got these three things,
  • 00:12:39.180 --> 00:12:43.030
  • that if this became the truth about yourself
  • 00:12:43.040 --> 00:12:46.040
  • from which you lived, that you knew these
  • 00:12:46.050 --> 00:12:48.190
  • three things more than anything else in your life,
  • 00:12:48.200 --> 00:12:51.150
  • you knew you were chosen,
  • 00:12:51.160 --> 00:12:53.110
  • you knew you were holy,
  • 00:12:53.120 --> 00:12:54.250
  • and you knew you were beloved,
  • 00:12:54.260 --> 00:12:56.090
  • I'm gonna tell you something.
  • 00:12:56.100 --> 00:12:57.230
  • Listen, you cannot imagine what breadth that would cover,
  • 00:12:57.240 --> 00:13:04.180
  • because just think about it.
  • 00:13:04.190 --> 00:13:06.020
  • Do you know what chosen mean?
  • 00:13:06.030 --> 00:13:07.200
  • Just think about what being chosen says to you
  • 00:13:07.210 --> 00:13:11.080
  • and how at the very deepest part of us
  • 00:13:11.090 --> 00:13:14.200
  • part of our innate human desire is to just be desired,
  • 00:13:14.210 --> 00:13:20.270
  • to be seen and to be noticed, to be wanted,
  • 00:13:20.280 --> 00:13:24.120
  • to be picked out instead of picked on.
  • 00:13:24.130 --> 00:13:29.130
  • None of us just wanted Jesus to feel sorry for us and go,
  • 00:13:29.140 --> 00:13:32.240
  • "Okay, you're on my team."
  • 00:13:32.250 --> 00:13:36.170
  • You were the last one out there.
  • 00:13:36.180 --> 00:13:37.280
  • I mean, what can he do?
  • 00:13:37.290 --> 00:13:40.210
  • You're just like we, sort of, got swept in on the group pass.
  • 00:13:40.220 --> 00:13:45.170
  • We wanna know that we weren't just a charity case to him,
  • 00:13:45.180 --> 00:13:51.110
  • we--to know we were chosen.
  • 00:13:51.120 --> 00:13:54.160
  • See, this really begins to take a needle and thread to wound
  • 00:13:54.170 --> 00:13:59.040
  • for every one of us in this room in one way or another,
  • 00:13:59.050 --> 00:14:02.190
  • because if you've lived long enough
  • 00:14:02.200 --> 00:14:04.170
  • you know what it's like to not be chosen,
  • 00:14:04.180 --> 00:14:08.100
  • whether for a job, a position, something you thought,
  • 00:14:08.110 --> 00:14:13.010
  • "I mean, I coulda sworn that God called me to that,"
  • 00:14:13.020 --> 00:14:17.120
  • by a man you were in love with.
  • 00:14:21.130 --> 00:14:25.200
  • "I wasn't chosen."
  • 00:14:25.210 --> 00:14:27.100
  • Listen, the Son of God
  • 00:14:27.110 --> 00:14:30.180
  • who spoke the planets into orbit,
  • 00:14:30.190 --> 00:14:34.160
  • who said, "Let there be light," and there was, picked you.
  • 00:14:34.170 --> 00:14:40.070
  • Picked you.
  • 00:14:40.080 --> 00:14:41.250
  • Billions of people on the planet.
  • 00:14:41.260 --> 00:14:46.170
  • He saw you, knew you, and he picked you.
  • 00:14:46.180 --> 00:14:51.200

  • you can do it at a church that may have that gathering
  • 00:16:15.030 --> 00:16:17.210
  • that is going to be a host church for the event.
  • 00:16:17.220 --> 00:16:20.050
  • Wherever it might be, come be part of it.
  • 00:16:20.060 --> 00:16:23.170
  • We can't wait to see what God would speak over us.
  • 00:16:23.180 --> 00:16:26.100
  • We'll worship, we'll be in the Word of God,
  • 00:16:26.110 --> 00:16:28.130
  • and we anticipate him doing more than we could ask or imagine.
  • 00:16:28.140 --> 00:16:32.230
  • I hope so much you'll join us.
  • 00:16:32.240 --> 00:16:34.190
  • Listen, the Son of God
  • 00:16:41.170 --> 00:16:44.240
  • who spoke the planets into orbit,
  • 00:16:44.250 --> 00:16:48.210
  • who said, "Let there be light," and there was, picked you.
  • 00:16:48.220 --> 00:16:54.140
  • Picked you.
  • 00:16:54.150 --> 00:16:56.030
  • Billions of people on the planet.
  • 00:16:56.040 --> 00:17:00.260
  • He saw you, knew you, and he picked you.
  • 00:17:00.270 --> 00:17:05.280
  • Chosen.
  • 00:17:05.290 --> 00:17:07.090
  • Think what it means to be set apart as holy,
  • 00:17:07.100 --> 00:17:10.000
  • because this is where my sanctification comes in.
  • 00:17:10.010 --> 00:17:14.140
  • It's so important that it's part of our definition,
  • 00:17:14.150 --> 00:17:16.160
  • because it tells me this is who I am now.
  • 00:17:16.170 --> 00:17:19.170
  • The reason I don't live like I used to live
  • 00:17:19.180 --> 00:17:21.240
  • is because this is who I am now.
  • 00:17:21.250 --> 00:17:24.130
  • I am chosen.
  • 00:17:24.140 --> 00:17:26.060
  • I am holy.
  • 00:17:26.070 --> 00:17:27.270
  • That I'll be able to think about someone mistreating me,
  • 00:17:27.280 --> 00:17:30.280
  • "Oh, you know what?
  • 00:17:30.290 --> 00:17:33.150
  • "You did not realize I'm holy.
  • 00:17:33.160 --> 00:17:39.000
  • You cannot do that, because I am holy."
  • 00:17:40.260 --> 00:17:46.260
  • In the Old Testament priesthood the priests had a plaque
  • 00:17:48.160 --> 00:17:53.130
  • right on their forehead, on their miter,
  • 00:17:53.140 --> 00:17:56.060
  • or their priestly crown,
  • 00:17:56.070 --> 00:17:58.060
  • and it said "holiness to the Lord."
  • 00:17:58.070 --> 00:18:01.030
  • I would not be a bit surprised if when we get to heaven
  • 00:18:01.040 --> 00:18:04.130
  • we find out that we bore a mark on our foreheads
  • 00:18:04.140 --> 00:18:07.290
  • that we cannot see with our natural eyes,
  • 00:18:08.000 --> 00:18:10.110
  • but the book of 2 Timothy says
  • 00:18:10.120 --> 00:18:12.060
  • the Lord knows those who are his.
  • 00:18:12.070 --> 00:18:16.010
  • And that we're told in the Scriptures we are sealed,
  • 00:18:16.020 --> 00:18:19.160
  • and it would make perfect sense since we are the priesthood
  • 00:18:19.170 --> 00:18:23.130
  • of believers in this day of the New Testament church,
  • 00:18:23.140 --> 00:18:27.040
  • and we probably have a seal somewhere going
  • 00:18:27.050 --> 00:18:29.020
  • "holy, holy, holy, holy."
  • 00:18:29.030 --> 00:18:32.280
  • And when you're filled with temptation
  • 00:18:32.290 --> 00:18:34.090
  • to do something unholy, just tap on your forehead,
  • 00:18:34.100 --> 00:18:37.020
  • and the person you're being tempted with
  • 00:18:40.190 --> 00:18:42.050
  • will think you are a nut and all of a sudden
  • 00:18:42.060 --> 00:18:46.110
  • they will amazingly lose interest
  • 00:18:46.120 --> 00:18:51.080
  • in what was unholy.
  • 00:18:51.090 --> 00:18:57.270
  • 1 Peter 1:14-16, "Like obedient children,
  • 00:18:57.280 --> 00:19:00.200
  • "do not comply with the evil urges
  • 00:19:00.210 --> 00:19:02.130
  • "you used to follow in your ignorance,
  • 00:19:02.140 --> 00:19:04.120
  • "but, like the holy one who called you,
  • 00:19:04.130 --> 00:19:06.090
  • "become holy in all your conduct, for it is written,
  • 00:19:06.100 --> 00:19:09.070
  • 'You shall be holy, because I am holy.'"
  • 00:19:09.080 --> 00:19:14.020
  • It's a reminder to act like who we are.
  • 00:19:14.030 --> 00:19:16.290
  • We are not common.
  • 00:19:17.000 --> 00:19:19.150
  • We're extraordinary in holiness.
  • 00:19:19.160 --> 00:19:23.230
  • We are beloved.
  • 00:19:23.240 --> 00:19:26.000
  • Is there anything more important than that?
  • 00:19:26.010 --> 00:19:29.270
  • Just beloved.
  • 00:19:29.280 --> 00:19:31.250
  • Just beloved.
  • 00:19:31.260 --> 00:19:33.170
  • Just beloved.
  • 00:19:33.180 --> 00:19:37.260
  • There's no way to even measure the impact of being
  • 00:19:37.270 --> 00:19:40.290
  • and feeling beloved or the negative impact of not.
  • 00:19:41.000 --> 00:19:46.150
  • I want you to hear this, because this is what flows from it.
  • 00:19:46.160 --> 00:19:49.110
  • These are the manifestations of someone who knows
  • 00:19:49.120 --> 00:19:54.030
  • she or he is chosen, holy, and beloved.
  • 00:19:54.040 --> 00:20:01.010
  • Then he says and put on compassionate hearts,
  • 00:20:01.020 --> 00:20:05.160
  • kindness, humility, meekness, and patience,
  • 00:20:05.170 --> 00:20:12.160
  • see, because these things flow out of someone
  • 00:20:12.170 --> 00:20:15.230
  • who knows she is chosen and holy and beloved.
  • 00:20:15.240 --> 00:20:20.250
  • We will have compassion, we will want to be kind,
  • 00:20:20.260 --> 00:20:24.250
  • we'll be freer with forgiveness
  • 00:20:24.260 --> 00:20:26.180
  • because we know what it cost Jesus to make us holy.
  • 00:20:26.190 --> 00:20:33.070
  • We'll have that meekness, which is power under authority,
  • 00:20:33.080 --> 00:20:37.000
  • not weakness, and we'll have that love
  • 00:20:37.010 --> 00:20:40.230
  • that bonds everything together in perfect harmony,
  • 00:20:40.240 --> 00:20:44.220
  • 'cause, you see, the less we operate
  • 00:20:44.230 --> 00:20:46.020
  • out of our chosenness, holiness, and belovedness
  • 00:20:46.030 --> 00:20:49.200
  • the harder it is for us to be compassionate,
  • 00:20:49.210 --> 00:20:53.100
  • for us to be kind, for us to be humble,
  • 00:20:53.110 --> 00:20:57.260
  • to be meek and to be patient and to love.
  • 00:20:57.270 --> 00:21:03.270
  • So much of our lovelessness is in our own sense
  • 00:21:03.280 --> 00:21:06.290
  • of unloveliness, because you know what?
  • 00:21:07.000 --> 00:21:13.170
  • Beloved people be loving.
  • 00:21:13.180 --> 00:21:19.120
  • They be loving.
  • 00:21:19.130 --> 00:21:22.020
  • Number two is this: redefinition isn't just a better version
  • 00:21:22.030 --> 00:21:27.140
  • of our old selves.
  • 00:21:27.150 --> 00:21:29.230
  • Oh, this one is so important.
  • 00:21:29.240 --> 00:21:31.170
  • Redefinition isn't just a better version
  • 00:21:31.180 --> 00:21:37.130
  • of our old selves.
  • 00:21:37.140 --> 00:21:41.210
  • This is part of what really drove this lesson
  • 00:21:41.220 --> 00:21:44.010
  • for this weekend,
  • 00:21:44.020 --> 00:21:45.200
  • because I am convinced, maybe based on my own experience
  • 00:21:45.210 --> 00:21:51.020
  • and past and my own attitudes, that for most of us
  • 00:21:51.030 --> 00:21:55.120
  • what we think God has done for us
  • 00:21:55.130 --> 00:21:58.090
  • is that his Spirit coming to dwell in us
  • 00:21:58.100 --> 00:22:01.030
  • simply made us better at who we used to be,
  • 00:22:01.040 --> 00:22:05.290
  • a better version of our old selves,
  • 00:22:06.000 --> 00:22:08.220
  • instead of the biblical fact
  • 00:22:08.230 --> 00:22:11.230
  • that we have been made brand new.
  • 00:22:11.240 --> 00:22:16.170
  • That we have been wholly redefined
  • 00:22:16.180 --> 00:22:19.110
  • and not just repainted,
  • 00:22:19.120 --> 00:22:22.240
  • recovered, or refurbished.
  • 00:22:22.250 --> 00:22:27.120
  • No, we have been redefined.
  • 00:22:27.130 --> 00:22:30.260
  • We are not just improved.
  • 00:22:30.270 --> 00:22:33.150
  • We are reborn.
  • 00:22:33.160 --> 00:22:36.030
  • Somebody in the house needs to hear that.
  • 00:22:36.040 --> 00:22:40.000
  • You and I are Neo-mes.
  • 00:22:40.010 --> 00:22:43.140
  • Not Naomi, but Neo-me.
  • 00:22:43.150 --> 00:22:47.020
  • New mes.
  • 00:22:47.030 --> 00:22:51.180
  • I gotta tell you something.
  • 00:22:51.190 --> 00:22:52.280
  • I did a little check-in reading on Moses,
  • 00:22:52.290 --> 00:22:55.190
  • because he is exhibit A on what I'm talking about.
  • 00:22:55.200 --> 00:23:00.070
  • Do you remember,
  • 00:23:00.080 --> 00:23:01.170
  • if you're familiar with the story,
  • 00:23:01.180 --> 00:23:02.270
  • back in Exodus chapter 3 when the Lord
  • 00:23:02.280 --> 00:23:04.280
  • reveals himself to him through a burning bush
  • 00:23:04.290 --> 00:23:06.280
  • that was not surprising by its burning?
  • 00:23:06.290 --> 00:23:10.150
  • It was surprising by the fact that it did not consume
  • 00:23:10.160 --> 00:23:13.210
  • the bush in which it was burning,
  • 00:23:13.220 --> 00:23:16.100
  • so Moses goes over to it, and the Lord speaks to him.
  • 00:23:16.110 --> 00:23:19.060
  • "Take off your sandals, because this is holy ground,"
  • 00:23:19.070 --> 00:23:22.280
  • and he calls him.
  • 00:23:22.290 --> 00:23:24.290
  • He says, "I've heard the cries of my people, Israel,
  • 00:23:25.000 --> 00:23:28.220
  • and I am sending you back.
  • 00:23:28.230 --> 00:23:30.190
  • You will go before the Pharaoh."
  • 00:23:30.200 --> 00:23:32.220
  • Well, Moses immediately begins to argue with him and said,
  • 00:23:32.230 --> 00:23:36.280
  • "They're gonna say, 'Who even sent you?'"
  • 00:23:36.290 --> 00:23:38.280
  • "You tell them I am who I am.
  • 00:23:38.290 --> 00:23:44.060
  • That the I Am has sent you to them."
  • 00:23:44.070 --> 00:23:49.180
  • And he says the most interesting thing.
  • 00:23:49.190 --> 00:23:52.130
  • He keeps arguing with him and in 4, verse 10 he says
  • 00:23:52.140 --> 00:23:56.160
  • this to him, "But Moses said to the Lord,
  • 00:23:56.170 --> 00:23:59.090
  • "'Oh, Lord, I am not eloquent,
  • 00:23:59.100 --> 00:24:01.170
  • "'either in the past or since you have spoken
  • 00:24:01.180 --> 00:24:04.080
  • "'to your servant,
  • 00:24:04.090 --> 00:24:05.190
  • "but I am slow of speech and of tongue.'
  • 00:24:05.200 --> 00:24:07.170
  • "And then the Lord said to him, 'Who has made a man's mouth?
  • 00:24:07.180 --> 00:24:12.110
  • Now you go, and I will be with your mouth--'"
  • 00:24:12.120 --> 00:24:15.130
  • See, this is--I have claimed this so many--I need the Lord
  • 00:24:15.140 --> 00:24:17.260
  • to be with my mouth in the worst way.
  • 00:24:17.270 --> 00:24:20.270
  • You know, anybody know what I'm talking about?
  • 00:24:20.280 --> 00:24:22.210
  • Because everywhere I go it's like there is two of us,
  • 00:24:22.220 --> 00:24:24.220
  • there is me and then there is my mouth,
  • 00:24:24.230 --> 00:24:26.140
  • and I need the Lord not to only be with me.
  • 00:24:26.150 --> 00:24:28.200
  • I need the Lord to be with my mouth.
  • 00:24:28.210 --> 00:24:30.200
  • He said, "I'll be with your mouth,
  • 00:24:30.210 --> 00:24:32.050
  • "and I'll teach you what you shall speak.'
  • 00:24:32.060 --> 00:24:34.000
  • "But he said, 'Oh, Lord, please send someone else.'
  • 00:24:34.010 --> 00:24:36.180
  • "Then the anger of the Lord was kindled against Moses
  • 00:24:36.190 --> 00:24:38.240
  • "and he said, 'Is there not Aaron, your brother, the Levite?
  • 00:24:38.250 --> 00:24:41.240
  • "'I know that he can speak well.
  • 00:24:41.250 --> 00:24:43.150
  • "'Behold, he's coming out to meet you,
  • 00:24:43.160 --> 00:24:45.010
  • "'and when he sees you, he'll be glad in his heart.
  • 00:24:45.020 --> 00:24:47.020
  • "'And you shall speak to him and put the words in his mouth
  • 00:24:47.030 --> 00:24:50.040
  • that I will tell you to say.'"
  • 00:24:50.050 --> 00:24:52.080
  • Moses did not need Aaron, but he had guts enough.
  • 00:24:52.090 --> 00:24:57.210
  • I cannot imagine--I would have been more frightened
  • 00:24:57.220 --> 00:24:59.250
  • to say this to God than to go before Pharaoh.
  • 00:24:59.260 --> 00:25:03.090
  • "I couldn't speak before and even since I met you
  • 00:25:03.100 --> 00:25:07.290
  • I still can't speak."
  • 00:25:08.000 --> 00:25:11.280
  • That's someone in this room.
  • 00:25:11.290 --> 00:25:15.010
  • You don't realize that all the things you say,
  • 00:25:15.020 --> 00:25:18.070
  • "You know, I never have been able to do that,"
  • 00:25:18.080 --> 00:25:20.210
  • well, see, the thing of it is you've been redefined.
  • 00:25:20.220 --> 00:25:24.130
  • How do you know what you can do and what you can't do?
  • 00:25:24.140 --> 00:25:28.270
  • How do you know?
  • 00:25:28.280 --> 00:25:30.200
  • Because here is the thing: you can do anything
  • 00:25:30.210 --> 00:25:33.000
  • he calls you to do.
  • 00:25:33.010 --> 00:25:34.170
  • See, we've got this terrible fear that we're gonna mess up
  • 00:25:34.180 --> 00:25:37.180
  • in front of people, and he said, "Do you know what?
  • 00:25:37.190 --> 00:25:40.030
  • "I am not interested in you doing it flawlessly
  • 00:25:40.040 --> 00:25:44.010
  • "so that everybody can be impressed with you.
  • 00:25:44.020 --> 00:25:47.050
  • "I'm interested in your obedience,
  • 00:25:47.060 --> 00:25:49.150
  • "because I'm gonna tell you something.
  • 00:25:49.160 --> 00:25:51.080
  • "I can enable you to do things you have not dreamed
  • 00:25:51.090 --> 00:25:56.220
  • you can do."
  • 00:25:56.230 --> 00:25:58.100
  • Remember the definition to define:
  • 00:25:58.110 --> 00:26:01.100
  • to limit, set a boundary around.
  • 00:26:01.110 --> 00:26:04.220
  • When you and I were redefined in Christ
  • 00:26:04.230 --> 00:26:09.070
  • those boundaries were mown down.
  • 00:26:09.080 --> 00:26:12.190
  • You think, some of you, that when you traded the old life
  • 00:26:12.200 --> 00:26:17.170
  • for the new that you had to come into a smaller space
