  • 00:00:04.090 --> 00:00:06.030
  • Only then will we produce good fruit.
  • 00:00:06.060 --> 00:00:08.280
  • God's word has everything we need to succeed in life.
  • 00:00:09.010 --> 00:00:14.080
  • All we need to do is keep our hearts good.
  • 00:00:14.110 --> 00:00:18.060
  • Join us today as my pastor, Robert Morris,
  • 00:00:18.090 --> 00:00:20.170
  • teaches the value of living a God-centered life.
  • 00:00:20.200 --> 00:00:24.070
  • 00:00:24.100 --> 00:00:38.240
  • ROBERT MORRIS: I want you to turn your Bibles
  • 00:00:38.270 --> 00:00:40.040
  • to two passages and hang on to these two passages
  • 00:00:40.070 --> 00:00:43.210
  • because we'll flip back and forth.
  • 00:00:43.240 --> 00:00:45.290
  • Turn to Matthew 13 and Isaiah 57.
  • 00:00:46.020 --> 00:00:50.220
  • So, we'll start Matthew 13.
  • 00:00:50.250 --> 00:00:54.090
  • We'll go back to Isaiah 57, and then we'll come back
  • 00:00:54.120 --> 00:00:57.050
  • to Matthew 13, and we're wrapping up the series,
  • 00:00:57.080 --> 00:01:01.260
  • "You Are Here", and just to remind you, we talked about
  • 00:01:01.290 --> 00:01:06.150
  • that every person is growing in his or her relationship
  • 00:01:06.180 --> 00:01:10.050
  • with the Lord.
  • 00:01:10.080 --> 00:01:11.170
  • We have people coming to church that are exploring God.
  • 00:01:11.200 --> 00:01:14.160
  • Once you come to the cross, the beginning of God,
  • 00:01:14.190 --> 00:01:17.100
  • close to God, and God-centered.
  • 00:01:17.130 --> 00:01:20.160
  • We've talked about making the step from each
  • 00:01:20.190 --> 00:01:24.050
  • to the next category, grace, God's word in giving,
  • 00:01:24.080 --> 00:01:27.150
  • and we talked about fellowship, relationship, discipleship,
  • 00:01:27.180 --> 00:01:30.080
  • and this week is Lordship.
  • 00:01:30.110 --> 00:01:32.080
  • Now, I want to tell you something about Lordship
  • 00:01:32.110 --> 00:01:33.290
  • that may shock you because we look at this as a path
  • 00:01:34.020 --> 00:01:39.260
  • or a journey that we're on.
  • 00:01:39.290 --> 00:01:41.070
  • I want to encourage you to not see this as a chronology
  • 00:01:41.100 --> 00:01:45.030
  • of the Christian life.
  • 00:01:45.060 --> 00:01:46.230
  • In other words, I don't want you to think about this
  • 00:01:46.260 --> 00:01:49.280
  • as this is some sort of a time series.
  • 00:01:50.010 --> 00:01:57.230
  • In other words, if you get saved, you're beginning in God,
  • 00:01:57.260 --> 00:02:01.140
  • and in one to three years or whatever,
  • 00:02:01.170 --> 00:02:02.250
  • then you're close to God and God-centered.
  • 00:02:02.280 --> 00:02:05.000
  • The reason I don't want you to see this as a chronology
  • 00:02:05.030 --> 00:02:06.250
  • is that I don't want you to think, "Okay.
  • 00:02:06.280 --> 00:02:08.240
  • I've been saved now ten years so I am automatically
  • 00:02:08.270 --> 00:02:12.200
  • God-centered", because that's not true.
  • 00:02:12.230 --> 00:02:16.140
  • Also, you can go backward, and I want to tell you
  • 00:02:16.170 --> 00:02:19.180
  • something that's going to shock you.
  • 00:02:19.210 --> 00:02:21.060
  • We're talking about Lordship now, and listen carefully.
  • 00:02:21.090 --> 00:02:23.110
  • This is where you began.
  • 00:02:23.140 --> 00:02:29.080
  • I know you think it's beginning in God,
  • 00:02:29.110 --> 00:02:31.120
  • that it's relationship, and it is, but when you got saved,
  • 00:02:31.150 --> 00:02:36.070
  • you were God-centered.
  • 00:02:36.100 --> 00:02:39.080
  • Jesus was the Lord of your life or didn't get saved.
  • 00:02:39.110 --> 00:02:43.150
  • We accept Jesus as our Lord and our Savior,
  • 00:02:43.180 --> 00:02:46.190
  • and here's what happens then.
  • 00:02:46.220 --> 00:02:48.090
  • The birds of the air come.
  • 00:02:48.120 --> 00:02:50.080
  • We talked about that.
  • 00:02:50.110 --> 00:02:51.120
  • The cares of this world come, tribulation
  • 00:02:51.150 --> 00:02:54.190
  • and persecution arises.
  • 00:02:54.220 --> 00:02:56.180
  • So, how do we stay God-centered?
  • 00:02:56.210 --> 00:03:01.200
  • That's really what this message is about
  • 00:03:01.230 --> 00:03:04.020
  • is how do we stay God-centered?
  • 00:03:04.050 --> 00:03:06.080
  • Now, we -- I know you're in Matthew 13.
  • 00:03:06.110 --> 00:03:08.140
  • We will get to that, but we've been focusing on Mark 4.
  • 00:03:08.170 --> 00:03:12.120
  • This parable is in Mark 4, Luke 8, and Matthew 13.
  • 00:03:12.150 --> 00:03:18.100
  • So, let me show you this fourth category in Luke
  • 00:03:18.130 --> 00:03:22.110
  • for just a moment.
  • 00:03:22.140 --> 00:03:24.050
  • Just one verse because here's what it talks about
  • 00:03:24.080 --> 00:03:27.130
  • is good ground, and let me show you what good ground is.
  • 00:03:27.160 --> 00:03:30.290
  • Remember I told you that you can define the symbolic language
  • 00:03:31.020 --> 00:03:36.250
  • of the Bible if you look at every place it is.
  • 00:03:36.280 --> 00:03:39.030
  • The Bible will at some point tell you.
  • 00:03:39.060 --> 00:03:40.210
  • It tells us what locusts represent.
  • 00:03:40.240 --> 00:03:42.020
  • It tells us what scorpions represent.
  • 00:03:42.050 --> 00:03:43.280
  • It tells us what thorns represent.
  • 00:03:44.010 --> 00:03:45.270
  • If you're new to this series, we've already gone through
  • 00:03:46.000 --> 00:03:48.040
  • all that, but this is talking about good ground,
  • 00:03:48.070 --> 00:03:51.060
  • and let me show you what good ground represents.
  • 00:03:51.090 --> 00:03:53.260
  • Luke tells us.
  • 00:03:53.290 --> 00:03:55.050
  • Luke 8:15 says, "But the ones that fell on the good ground
  • 00:03:55.080 --> 00:03:59.140
  • are those who having heard the word with a noble
  • 00:03:59.170 --> 00:04:05.010
  • and good heart keep it and bear fruit with patience."
  • 00:04:05.040 --> 00:04:11.080
  • Mark says that they bear fruit 30, 60, and 100-fold.
  • 00:04:11.110 --> 00:04:16.020
  • All of us want to bear fruit.
  • 00:04:16.050 --> 00:04:17.200
  • 30, 60, and 100-fold.
  • 00:04:17.230 --> 00:04:19.150
  • Here's the key.
  • 00:04:19.180 --> 00:04:20.260
  • Good ground represents a good heart.
  • 00:04:20.290 --> 00:04:26.000
  • The key is keeping your ground good,
  • 00:04:26.030 --> 00:04:30.160
  • keeping your heart good.
  • 00:04:30.190 --> 00:04:32.070
  • So, what constitutes a good heart?
  • 00:04:32.100 --> 00:04:35.200
  • I have three points.
  • 00:04:35.230 --> 00:04:37.060
  • Here's number one, a humble heart.
  • 00:04:37.090 --> 00:04:40.070
  • A humble heart.
  • 00:04:40.100 --> 00:04:41.210
  • Now, look at in Matthew 13 we have read in this series
  • 00:04:41.240 --> 00:04:45.150
  • the parable Jesus talking about the birds of the air
  • 00:04:45.180 --> 00:04:48.260
  • and the thorns and all of that, and then we have read
  • 00:04:48.290 --> 00:04:51.290
  • where He explains it, but we haven't read
  • 00:04:52.020 --> 00:04:55.060
  • what's in between, and I want to show you what's in between Jesus
  • 00:04:55.090 --> 00:04:59.070
  • telling the parable and Him explaining it
  • 00:04:59.100 --> 00:05:01.210
  • because it's extremely important.
  • 00:05:01.240 --> 00:05:03.090
  • Matthew 13.
  • 00:05:03.120 --> 00:05:04.100
  • Look at Verse 10.
  • 00:05:04.130 --> 00:05:06.140
  • "And the disciples came and said to Him why do you speak
  • 00:05:06.170 --> 00:05:09.200
  • to them in parables?
  • 00:05:09.230 --> 00:05:11.250
  • He answered and said to them," this is very, very important,
  • 00:05:11.280 --> 00:05:14.290
  • "because it has been given to you to know the mysteries
  • 00:05:15.020 --> 00:05:19.180
  • of the kingdom of heaven, but to them
  • 00:05:19.210 --> 00:05:24.030
  • it has not been given."
  • 00:05:24.060 --> 00:05:27.080
  • Now, I'll explain that in a moment.
  • 00:05:27.110 --> 00:05:28.240
  • For whoever has to him more will be given,
  • 00:05:28.270 --> 00:05:32.260
  • and he will have abundance, but whoever does not have,
  • 00:05:32.290 --> 00:05:36.110
  • even what he has will be taken away from him.
  • 00:05:36.140 --> 00:05:41.010
  • Therefore, I speak to them in parables," now, He goes on
  • 00:05:41.040 --> 00:05:45.080
  • to explain why He does this, "and in them the prophesy
  • 00:05:45.110 --> 00:05:48.180
  • of Isaiah is fulfilled which says hearing you'll hear
  • 00:05:48.210 --> 00:05:51.140
  • and shall not understand and seeing you will see
  • 00:05:51.170 --> 00:05:55.020
  • and not perceive for or because the hearts.
  • 00:05:55.050 --> 00:06:01.040
  • It goes back to the heart whether being good ground
  • 00:06:01.070 --> 00:06:02.240
  • or stony ground, the hearts of this people have grown dull."
  • 00:06:02.270 --> 00:06:09.110
  • I want you to notice your heart can grow dull.
  • 00:06:09.140 --> 00:06:12.010
  • "Their ears are hard of hearing.
  • 00:06:12.040 --> 00:06:15.000
  • Their eyes," this is very important, "they have closed."
  • 00:06:15.030 --> 00:06:20.040
  • They have closed them.
  • 00:06:20.070 --> 00:06:21.100
  • "Lest, they should see with their eyes,
  • 00:06:21.130 --> 00:06:23.290
  • hear with their eyes.
  • 00:06:24.020 --> 00:06:25.170
  • Lest, they should understand with their hearts and turns,"
  • 00:06:25.200 --> 00:06:29.160
  • this word actually means return, "to the Lord
  • 00:06:29.190 --> 00:06:32.000
  • so that I should heal them."
  • 00:06:32.030 --> 00:06:34.270
  • Now, that's an amazing passage.
  • 00:06:35.000 --> 00:06:36.090
  • Here's what He's saying.
  • 00:06:36.120 --> 00:06:37.120
  • They said why do you speak to them in parables?
  • 00:06:37.150 --> 00:06:38.220
  • He said because it has not been given to them to understand
  • 00:06:38.250 --> 00:06:43.100
  • the mysteries of the kingdom of God,
  • 00:06:43.130 --> 00:06:47.010
  • but it's been given to you.
  • 00:06:47.040 --> 00:06:48.290
  • Now, a lot of people have tried to make speculation about this,
  • 00:06:49.020 --> 00:06:52.190
  • but let me tell you what He says.
  • 00:06:52.220 --> 00:06:54.070
  • He says it's because they have a heart problem.
  • 00:06:54.100 --> 00:06:56.150
  • Their hearts have grown dull or their hearts have grown hard.
  • 00:06:56.180 --> 00:07:01.000
  • Please hear me.
  • 00:07:01.030 --> 00:07:02.260
  • If you wonder sometimes why does that guy get so much
  • 00:07:02.290 --> 00:07:07.250
  • revelation or why does that person bear so much fruit
  • 00:07:07.280 --> 00:07:11.240
  • because I read the word too?
  • 00:07:11.270 --> 00:07:13.120
  • Listen to me carefully, but what's your heart?
  • 00:07:13.150 --> 00:07:18.190
  • Because the seed is the word of God,
  • 00:07:18.220 --> 00:07:21.040
  • and your heart is the ground, and if your heart
  • 00:07:21.070 --> 00:07:25.080
  • is good ground, then the seed will product fruit,
  • 00:07:25.110 --> 00:07:30.280
  • and good ground is a humble heart or a soft heart.
  • 00:07:31.010 --> 00:07:34.240
  • Let me read you a couple of scriptures, Ezekiel 36:26 says,
  • 00:07:34.270 --> 00:07:38.210
  • "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you.
  • 00:07:38.240 --> 00:07:42.190
  • I will take the heart of stone," that would be a hard heart,
  • 00:07:42.220 --> 00:07:46.110
  • "out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh."
  • 00:07:46.140 --> 00:07:49.100
  • A soft heart.
  • 00:07:49.130 --> 00:07:50.100
  • Listen, this is what I said a moment ago.
  • 00:07:50.130 --> 00:07:51.180
  • We all start here.
  • 00:07:51.210 --> 00:07:52.250
  • We all start with a new heart and a soft heart,
  • 00:07:52.280 --> 00:07:56.110
  • but persecution, tribulation arises.
  • 00:07:56.140 --> 00:08:00.170
  • That was number two, and then the cares of this world come
  • 00:08:00.200 --> 00:08:03.150
  • and thorns come in, and here's what happens.
  • 00:08:03.180 --> 00:08:05.210
  • Our heart gets wounded, and we harden it,
  • 00:08:05.240 --> 00:08:10.120
  • and we say I'm not going to let that happen again.
  • 00:08:10.150 --> 00:08:11.250
  • I'm not going to let that heart happen,
  • 00:08:11.280 --> 00:08:14.080
  • and the harder our heart gets, the harder the ground gets
  • 00:08:14.110 --> 00:08:21.030
  • so that the seed just stays on top of the ground
  • 00:08:21.060 --> 00:08:24.230
  • and the birds of the air come get it.
  • 00:08:24.260 --> 00:08:26.090
  • Listen, when you make a decision to that,
  • 00:08:26.120 --> 00:08:29.170
  • you're making a decision to close your spiritual eyes,
  • 00:08:29.200 --> 00:08:32.260
  • to harden your heart, and you'll read this book,
  • 00:08:32.290 --> 00:08:36.290
  • but you will not know the mysteries of this book
  • 00:08:37.020 --> 00:08:42.200
  • because your heart is hard.
  • 00:08:42.230 --> 00:08:44.070
  • Okay, now, Isaiah 57 told you to hold a marker there.
  • 00:08:44.100 --> 00:08:48.000
  • I want to show you the three points I have are all in
  • 00:08:48.030 --> 00:08:51.230
  • Isaiah 57, Verse 15, "For thus says the high
  • 00:08:51.260 --> 00:08:57.250
  • and lofty one," notice it describes God as being high,
  • 00:08:57.280 --> 00:09:02.060
  • "who inhabits eternity whose name is holy."
  • 00:09:02.090 --> 00:09:05.060
  • Now watch what He says here.
  • 00:09:05.090 --> 00:09:06.070
  • "I dwell in the high and holy place."
  • 00:09:06.100 --> 00:09:11.140
  • Everyone knows God dwells in a high place, but watch this.
  • 00:09:11.170 --> 00:09:14.220
  • With Him, who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive
  • 00:09:14.250 --> 00:09:22.150
  • the spirit of the humble, to revive the heart
  • 00:09:22.180 --> 00:09:26.090
  • of the contrite ones.
  • 00:09:26.120 --> 00:09:27.130
  • Your heart is made up of your spirit and your soul.
  • 00:09:27.160 --> 00:09:28.270
  • Okay.
  • 00:09:29.000 --> 00:09:29.160
  • Here's what God says.
  • 00:09:29.190 --> 00:09:30.260
  • I dwell in a high place with the person who has a low heart.
  • 00:09:30.290 --> 00:09:35.080
  • That's what He's saying.
  • 00:09:35.110 --> 00:09:36.210
  • A humble heart.
  • 00:09:36.240 --> 00:09:37.160
  • Humble means to get down.
  • 00:09:37.190 --> 00:09:39.250
  • To humble yourself actually means in the Hebrew
  • 00:09:39.280 --> 00:09:42.070
  • and the Greek to prostate yourself to bow down,
  • 00:09:42.100 --> 00:09:45.220
  • to get low.
  • 00:09:45.250 --> 00:09:46.280
  • You do know the way up in the kingdom is down.
  • 00:09:47.010 --> 00:09:53.070
  • The way up in the kingdom is down.
  • 00:09:53.100 --> 00:09:54.190
  • Lower yourself, humble yourself.
  • 00:09:54.220 --> 00:09:57.090
  • I say it this way in another message.
  • 00:09:57.120 --> 00:09:58.260
  • Take the low road because the low road in the kingdom
  • 00:09:58.290 --> 00:10:03.020
  • is the high road.
  • 00:10:03.050 --> 00:10:04.120
  • Humble yourself.
  • 00:10:04.150 --> 00:10:05.290
  • If you humble yourself and humble your heart,
  • 00:10:06.020 --> 00:10:08.020
  • then God prepares your heart to receive the word of God.
  • 00:10:08.050 --> 00:10:12.130
  • Let me show you Scripture, Psalm 10:17,
  • 00:10:12.160 --> 00:10:17.020
  • "Lord, you have heard the desire of the humble.
  • 00:10:17.050 --> 00:10:21.010
  • You will prepare their heart."
  • 00:10:21.040 --> 00:10:24.260
  • What will He prepare our heart for?
  • 00:10:24.290 --> 00:10:27.070
  • To receive the word of God.
  • 00:10:27.100 --> 00:10:29.240
  • He dwells with the person of a low heart.
  • 00:10:29.270 --> 00:10:33.280
  • Are you following me?
  • 00:10:34.010 --> 00:10:34.280
  • It's really important.
  • 00:10:35.010 --> 00:10:36.120
  • Listen, you know why they couldn't understand
  • 00:10:36.150 --> 00:10:38.250
  • the mysteries?
  • 00:10:38.280 --> 00:10:40.010
  • Listen to me very carefully.
  • 00:10:40.040 --> 00:10:41.030
  • Because they thought they knew everything
  • 00:10:41.060 --> 00:10:45.040
  • so they couldn't learn anything.
  • 00:10:45.070 --> 00:10:49.100
  • I don't work with people that think they know everything
  • 00:10:49.130 --> 00:10:53.030
  • because a person who knows everything
  • 00:10:53.060 --> 00:10:55.180
  • can't learn anything.
  • 00:10:55.210 --> 00:10:57.250
  • If a person is not teachable, I don't want that person around
  • 00:10:57.280 --> 00:11:03.070
  • because they're not going to be any good for the kingdom.
  • 00:11:03.100 --> 00:11:06.120
  • So, number one, the way to keep your heart on good ground
  • 00:11:06.150 --> 00:11:09.050
  • is to keep it humble.
  • 00:11:09.080 --> 00:11:10.100
  • Here's number two, a holy heart.
  • 00:11:10.130 --> 00:11:12.280
  • A holy heart is good ground.
  • 00:11:13.010 --> 00:11:15.030
  • Again, Isaiah 57:15, "Says thus says the high and lofty one
  • 00:11:15.060 --> 00:11:19.000
  • who inhabits eternity whose name is holy,
  • 00:11:19.030 --> 00:11:23.110
  • I dwell in the high and holy place."
  • 00:11:23.140 --> 00:11:26.260
  • Okay.
  • 00:11:26.290 --> 00:11:27.160
  • God is holy.
  • 00:11:27.190 --> 00:11:28.260
  • No one would argue that.
  • 00:11:28.290 --> 00:11:30.030
  • God is holy.
  • 00:11:30.060 --> 00:11:31.120
  • The only problem is we don't know what the word holy means.
  • 00:11:31.150 --> 00:11:33.270
  • We think it means perfect.
  • 00:11:34.000 --> 00:11:38.100
  • God is perfect, and He is perfect,
  • 00:11:38.130 --> 00:11:40.290
  • but that's not the word holy means.
  • 00:11:41.020 --> 00:11:42.160
  • We think it means sinless, and God is sinless,
  • 00:11:42.190 --> 00:11:47.150
  • but that's not what the word holy means.
  • 00:11:47.180 --> 00:11:50.070
  • The word holy is a very, very simple word
  • 00:11:50.100 --> 00:11:53.230
  • that actually means set apart or separate from,
  • 00:11:53.260 --> 00:12:00.020
  • and it actually has to do with that something is moved over
  • 00:12:00.050 --> 00:12:04.220
  • in proximity from something else so that it can be set apart.
  • 00:12:04.250 --> 00:12:11.240
  • It can be set apart from that.
  • 00:12:11.270 --> 00:12:13.150
  • That's all the word holy means is set apart.
  • 00:12:13.180 --> 00:12:16.220
  • Now, when it's applied to God, yes, it can mean perfection,
  • 00:12:16.250 --> 00:12:22.190
  • and God is set apart from this world
  • 00:12:22.220 --> 00:12:26.190
  • because He is perfect, and He is sinless,
  • 00:12:26.220 --> 00:12:29.160
  • and obviously, He sent Jesus to be the bridge, but the point
  • 00:12:29.190 --> 00:12:34.040
  • you have to understand is that the word doesn't mean
  • 00:12:34.070 --> 00:12:37.230
  • sinless perfection because if it does, we're all in trouble
  • 00:12:37.260 --> 00:12:42.140
  • because of this Verse, 1 Peter 1:15-16 says,
  • 00:12:42.170 --> 00:12:47.010
  • "But as He who called you as holy, you also be holy
  • 00:12:47.040 --> 00:12:52.050
  • in all your conduct because it is written be holy,
  • 00:12:52.080 --> 00:12:58.250
  • for I am holy."
  • 00:12:58.280 --> 00:13:00.280
  • Now, if holy means sinless perfection,
  • 00:13:01.010 --> 00:13:03.070
  • then we've got a verse that says you also be perfectly sinless
  • 00:13:03.100 --> 00:13:10.000
  • in all your conduct.
  • 00:13:10.030 --> 00:13:12.040
  • That's not what this means, but here's what it does mean.
  • 00:13:12.070 --> 00:13:15.110
  • You also be set apart in your conduct
  • 00:13:15.140 --> 00:13:19.130
  • from a sin-filled fallen world.
  • 00:13:19.160 --> 00:13:23.200
  • You act differently than this world
  • 00:13:23.230 --> 00:13:27.150
  • because you belong to God.
  • 00:13:27.180 --> 00:13:28.190
  • Again, this word set apart, this Scripture here
  • 00:13:28.220 --> 00:13:31.070
  • in 1 Peter is a quote from Leviticus, four times,
  • 00:13:31.100 --> 00:13:36.060
  • be holy, for I am holy is in Leviticus.
  • 00:13:36.090 --> 00:13:38.230
  • It's in Chapter 11, 19, and twice in Chapter 20.
  • 00:13:38.260 --> 00:13:43.010
  • Now, let me show you, one of the times in Chapter 20,
  • 00:13:43.040 --> 00:13:45.220
  • Verse 26 says, "You must be holy because I,
  • 00:13:45.250 --> 00:13:50.010
  • the Lord, am holy."
  • 00:13:50.040 --> 00:13:51.110
  • Now watch this.
  • 00:13:51.140 --> 00:13:52.040
  • This explains it.
  • 00:13:52.070 --> 00:13:53.080
  • I have set you apart from all the other people
  • 00:13:53.110 --> 00:13:57.210
  • to be my very own."
  • 00:13:57.240 --> 00:14:00.140
  • I have set you apart to be my very own.
  • 00:14:00.170 --> 00:14:03.000
  • That's what God is saying.
  • 00:14:03.030 --> 00:14:04.270
  • Now, remember I told you to hold your place in Matthew 13?
  • 00:14:05.000 --> 00:14:09.230
  • Okay.
  • 00:14:09.260 --> 00:14:10.270
  • Go back to Matthew 13, and the reason I told you
  • 00:14:11.000 --> 00:14:12.160
  • to hold your place there is because I want to show you
  • 00:14:12.190 --> 00:14:14.200
  • a verse in Matthew 15, and it's close.
  • 00:14:14.230 --> 00:14:17.210
  • So, in Matthew 15, I'm going to show you about your heart
  • 00:14:17.240 --> 00:14:23.050
  • being holy, but I'm also going to show you two verses
  • 00:14:23.080 --> 00:14:27.010
  • in here that don't have anything to do with the message,
  • 00:14:27.040 --> 00:14:29.010
  • but they're funny and so I'd like to show them
  • 00:14:29.040 --> 00:14:30.270
  • to you, all right?
  • 00:14:31.000 --> 00:14:31.270
  • Okay.
  • 00:14:32.000 --> 00:14:33.020
  • Matthew 15:1 says, "Then the scribes and Pharisees
  • 00:14:33.050 --> 00:14:36.000
  • who were from Jerusalem came to Jesus saying
  • 00:14:36.030 --> 00:14:38.090
  • why do your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders
  • 00:14:38.120 --> 00:14:43.240
  • for they do not wash their hands when they eat bread?"
  • 00:14:43.270 --> 00:14:50.010
  • Okay.
  • 00:14:50.040 --> 00:14:51.020
  • That's hilarious to me because most of them
  • 00:14:51.050 --> 00:14:55.230
  • were fishermen, and the Pharisees said,
  • 00:14:55.260 --> 00:15:00.030
  • you know, your disciples don't wash their hands
  • 00:15:00.060 --> 00:15:03.070
  • when they eat bread.
  • 00:15:03.100 --> 00:15:04.130
  • They didn't wash their hands when they ate anything.
  • 00:15:04.160 --> 00:15:07.020
  • So, He explains to them about, listen, you transgress
  • 00:15:07.050 --> 00:15:09.260
  • the commandments of God by your tradition,
  • 00:15:09.290 --> 00:15:13.230
  • and then in Matthew 15 there, Verse 7, I love this
  • 00:15:13.260 --> 00:15:18.040
  • because Jesus to me was running His campaign speech,
  • 00:15:18.070 --> 00:15:21.130
  • and He said, "Hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy
  • 00:15:21.160 --> 00:15:26.260
  • that about you saying these people draw near to me
  • 00:15:26.290 --> 00:15:29.170
  • with their mouth and honor me with their lips,
  • 00:15:29.200 --> 00:15:32.110
  • but their heart is from me."
  • 00:15:32.140 --> 00:15:35.280
  • But now He explains it.
  • 00:15:36.010 --> 00:15:37.190
  • Verse 15, Matthew 15:15, "Peter answered and said to him,
  • 00:15:37.220 --> 00:15:41.220
  • explain this parable to us."
  • 00:15:41.250 --> 00:15:43.160
  • What He's talking about is the heart.
  • 00:15:43.190 --> 00:15:45.030
  • It's very important to understand He's talking
  • 00:15:45.060 --> 00:15:46.190
  • about the heart, and they were talking about eating food,
  • 00:15:46.220 --> 00:15:49.060
  • and that would contaminate them.
  • 00:15:49.090 --> 00:15:50.270
  • Okay.
  • 00:15:51.000 --> 00:15:51.200
  • Watch what He says.
  • 00:15:51.230 --> 00:15:53.110
  • Jesus said are you also still without understanding?
  • 00:15:53.140 --> 00:15:56.000
  • Do you not understand that whatever enters the mouth
  • 00:15:56.030 --> 00:16:00.100
  • goes into the stomach and is eliminated, but those things
  • 00:16:00.130 --> 00:16:04.000
  • which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart
  • 00:16:04.030 --> 00:16:08.100
  • and they defile a man.
  • 00:16:08.130 --> 00:16:11.190
  • For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts.
  • 00:16:11.220 --> 00:16:15.180
  • I just want you to know that your heart can think.
  • 00:16:15.210 --> 00:16:17.290
  • I talked about that before.
  • 00:16:18.020 --> 00:16:19.050
  • I don't have time to go into all of that right now.
  • 00:16:19.080 --> 00:16:20.200
  • Your heart can think.
  • 00:16:20.230 --> 00:16:21.210
  • Evil thoughts come out of the heart.
  • 00:16:21.240 --> 00:16:23.040
  • Murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts,
  • 00:16:23.070 --> 00:16:27.280
  • false witness, blasphemies -- this are the things which
  • 00:16:28.010 --> 00:16:32.050
  • defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands
  • 00:16:32.080 --> 00:16:34.130
  • does not defile a man, and it wasn't just washing the hands
  • 00:16:34.160 --> 00:16:37.280
  • so you wouldn't get germs or something.
  • 00:16:38.010 --> 00:16:40.260
  • They saw it as a religious tradition which they even said
  • 00:16:40.290 --> 00:16:45.190
  • was a commandment of God, and they added it to
  • 00:16:45.220 --> 00:16:47.130
  • the commandments, and that's what He's talking about.
  • 00:16:47.160 --> 00:16:49.060
  • He's talking about a ritual, but here's what He's saying.
  • 00:16:49.090 --> 00:16:52.090
  • It's what in your heart that can affect you.
  • 00:16:52.120 --> 00:16:55.150
  • Now, that's what I'm trying to tell you.
  • 00:16:55.180 --> 00:16:57.030
  • If you want your heart to be good ground to receive
  • 00:16:57.060 --> 00:17:00.100
  • the word of God, you're going to have to keep your heart
  • 00:17:00.130 --> 00:17:02.040
  • set apart from the world because what you allow
  • 00:17:02.070 --> 00:17:05.180
  • to come into your heart will affect you whether you can hear
  • 00:17:05.210 --> 00:17:09.000
  • and understand the word of God.
  • 00:17:09.030 --> 00:17:10.270
  • That's what I'm trying to tell you.
  • 00:17:11.000 --> 00:17:13.020
  • When you read this book, if you want to see
  • 00:17:13.050 --> 00:17:16.220
  • the mysteries of heaven and you want your heart,
  • 00:17:16.250 --> 00:17:19.040
  • your life to product good fruit and not be choked out by thorns
  • 00:17:19.070 --> 00:17:24.200
  • and the birds of the air come and steal the word
  • 00:17:24.230 --> 00:17:27.220
  • out of your heart, you have to keep you heart good ground
  • 00:17:27.250 --> 00:17:30.200
  • and one of the ways you can keep your heart good ground
  • 00:17:30.230 --> 00:17:32.280
  • is you set it apart from worldly thinking.
  • 00:17:33.010 --> 00:17:36.170
  • That's what I'm saying.
  • 00:17:36.200 --> 00:17:37.160
  • Okay?
  • 00:17:37.190 --> 00:17:38.190
  • All right, and here's the third type of heart
  • 00:17:38.220 --> 00:17:41.180
  • that is good ground, a heavenly heart.
  • 00:17:41.210 --> 00:17:43.270
  • A heavenly heart.
  • 00:17:44.000 --> 00:17:46.150
  • Again, in Isaiah 57:15 says, "Thus says the high and lofty
  • 00:17:46.180 --> 00:17:50.270
  • one who inhabits eternity," God is an eternal God,
  • 00:17:51.000 --> 00:17:56.220
  • "and by His grace we have now been given eternal life."
  • 00:17:56.250 --> 00:18:02.180
  • So, we become beings that will live forever.
  • 00:18:02.210 --> 00:18:06.000
  • That means this home, this world is not our home.
  • 00:18:06.030 --> 00:18:10.000
  • So, if you set your mind on temporary things,
  • 00:18:10.030 --> 00:18:15.040
  • listen to me carefully, you will not be able to understand
  • 00:18:15.070 --> 00:18:17.270
  • an eternal book.
  • 00:18:18.000 --> 00:18:20.160
  • Are you hearing me?
  • 00:18:20.190 --> 00:18:21.290
  • These are eternal words.
  • 00:18:22.020 --> 00:18:25.090
  • So, if you read them with a temporary mindset,
  • 00:18:25.120 --> 00:18:29.210
  • you won't understand the mysteries of the kingdom,
  • 00:18:29.240 --> 00:18:32.210
  • but when you have a heavenly heart that this world
  • 00:18:32.240 --> 00:18:36.120
  • is not your home, you're just passing through
  • 00:18:36.150 --> 00:18:38.020
  • and you read this book with a heavenly heart,
  • 00:18:38.050 --> 00:18:40.050
  • then you understand it.
  • 00:18:40.080 --> 00:18:42.150
  • 2 Corinthians 4:18, "While we do not look at
  • 00:18:42.180 --> 00:18:44.210
  • the things which are seen but of the things
  • 00:18:44.240 --> 00:18:47.030
  • which are not seen.
  • 00:18:47.060 --> 00:18:48.240
  • For the things which are seen are temporary,
  • 00:18:48.270 --> 00:18:51.040
  • but the things which are not seen are eternal."
  • 00:18:51.070 --> 00:18:53.200
  • Colossians 3:1-2, "If then you were raised with Christ,
  • 00:18:53.230 --> 00:18:56.280
  • seek those things which are above where Christ
  • 00:18:57.010 --> 00:18:59.240
  • is sitting at the right hand of God and set your mind
  • 00:18:59.270 --> 00:19:03.160
  • on things above, not on things of the earth."
  • 00:19:03.190 --> 00:19:09.040
  • And when we set our mind and when we meditate
  • 00:19:09.070 --> 00:19:11.190
  • on eternal things, then those become thoughts of the heart
  • 00:19:11.220 --> 00:19:15.260
  • and we can understand an eternal book.
  • 00:19:15.290 --> 00:19:17.220
  • Okay.
  • 00:19:17.250 --> 00:19:18.190
  • I'll show you more scripture.
  • 00:19:18.220 --> 00:19:20.110
  • If you are by Isaiah 57 still, this is in Isaiah 55.
  • 00:19:20.140 --> 00:19:25.060
  • It's close like Matthew 15 is close to Matthew 13.
  • 00:19:25.090 --> 00:19:28.000
  • I'm just a genius how I can arrange these things.
  • 00:19:28.030 --> 00:19:32.220
  • Actually, you know, I'm talking about the one
  • 00:19:32.250 --> 00:19:35.190
  • who wrote it who is the genius.
  • 00:19:35.220 --> 00:19:36.250
  • Okay.
  • 00:19:36.280 --> 00:19:38.020
  • So, the parable in Mark 4 talks about ground, seed, fruit.
  • 00:19:38.050 --> 00:19:44.260
  • Those are just three words that it talks about, ground,
  • 00:19:44.290 --> 00:19:46.290
  • seed, and fruit.
  • 00:19:47.020 --> 00:19:48.040
  • Seed being the word of God, obviously.
  • 00:19:48.070 --> 00:19:50.030
  • I just want to show you another verse from
  • 00:19:50.060 --> 00:19:53.130
  • the Old Testament that uses these three words as well.
  • 00:19:53.160 --> 00:19:56.110
  • Isaiah 55:10-11, "The rain and snow come down from
  • 00:19:56.140 --> 00:20:00.220
  • the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth.
  • 00:20:00.250 --> 00:20:06.150
  • The heart.
  • 00:20:06.180 --> 00:20:08.000
  • "They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer
  • 00:20:08.030 --> 00:20:13.240
  • and bread for the hungry."
  • 00:20:13.270 --> 00:20:15.090
  • Watch Verse 11.
  • 00:20:15.120 --> 00:20:16.210
  • "It is the same with my word.
  • 00:20:16.240 --> 00:20:20.030
  • I send it out and it always," look at the word always,
  • 00:20:20.060 --> 00:20:27.100
  • "produces fruit."
  • 00:20:27.130 --> 00:20:31.070
  • Jesus said some 30, some 60, and 100-fold.
  • 00:20:31.100 --> 00:20:34.030
  • "It will accomplish all I want it to,
  • 00:20:34.060 --> 00:20:39.230
  • and it will prosper everywhere I send it."
  • 00:20:39.260 --> 00:20:43.060
  • Okay.
  • 00:20:43.090 --> 00:20:44.040
  • You want the good news of this message?
  • 00:20:44.070 --> 00:20:46.040
  • The word produces the fruit if I just keep my heart good.
  • 00:20:46.070 --> 00:20:51.010
  • I don't have to product fruit in my life 30, 60, and 100-fold.
  • 00:20:51.040 --> 00:20:55.030
  • The word does that.
  • 00:20:55.060 --> 00:20:58.220
  • I just have to keep my heart good
  • 00:20:58.250 --> 00:21:01.060
  • and if I keep my heart good and good ground,
  • 00:21:01.090 --> 00:21:04.240
  • then the word produces the fruit and God even waters that word.
  • 00:21:04.270 --> 00:21:09.080
  • Let me just show you the next verses because again
  • 00:21:09.110 --> 00:21:12.230
  • we talked about analogies in scripture and symbolic
  • 00:21:12.260 --> 00:21:15.260
  • and parabolic language.
  • 00:21:15.290 --> 00:21:17.260
  • Verses 12 and 13 say, "You will in joy and peace.
  • 00:21:17.290 --> 00:21:22.040
  • The mountains and hills will burst forth in the song
  • 00:21:22.070 --> 00:21:25.000
  • and the trees of the field will clap their hands."
  • 00:21:25.030 --> 00:21:27.260
  • Let me just say this before we go.
  • 00:21:27.290 --> 00:21:28.290
  • The trees of the field are you.
  • 00:21:29.020 --> 00:21:30.140
  • Man who meditates on the word is like a tree.
  • 00:21:30.170 --> 00:21:32.060
  • Trees will clap their hands.
  • 00:21:32.090 --> 00:21:35.060
  • You've never been driving down the road
  • 00:21:35.090 --> 00:21:36.120
  • and seen a bunch of oak trees clapping their hands.
  • 00:21:36.150 --> 00:21:38.000
  • I know you've seen them waving in the breeze
  • 00:21:38.030 --> 00:21:39.160
  • and that's what people think this is talking about.
  • 00:21:39.190 --> 00:21:40.280
  • Trees of the field.
  • 00:21:41.010 --> 00:21:42.050
  • They'll represent people, but watch Verse 13, the analogy,
  • 00:21:42.080 --> 00:21:46.000
  • "Where once there were thorns," remember Mark 4,
  • 00:21:46.030 --> 00:21:48.290
  • thorns that choke the word, "Cyprus trees will grow."
  • 00:21:49.020 --> 00:21:55.040
  • If you've ever been in the swamps of Florida
  • 00:21:55.070 --> 00:21:58.250
  • or Louisiana what trees do you see?
  • 00:21:58.280 --> 00:22:00.070
  • Cyprus.
  • 00:22:00.100 --> 00:22:01.050
  • You know why?
  • 00:22:01.080 --> 00:22:02.140
  • Because Cyprus trees love water, and here's what He's saying.
  • 00:22:02.170 --> 00:22:09.180
  • My word will produce fruit.
  • 00:22:09.210 --> 00:22:12.070
  • If you'll just keep the ground great and let me
  • 00:22:12.100 --> 00:22:14.200
  • tell you what will happen.
  • 00:22:14.230 --> 00:22:16.020
  • If you'll keep your heart right, I'll take care of the thorns,
  • 00:22:16.050 --> 00:22:21.130
  • and you'll become a Cyprus tree.
  • 00:22:21.160 --> 00:22:23.040
  • You'll become a tree who loves the word of God,
  • 00:22:23.070 --> 00:22:27.280
  • but it's all dependent on your heart.
  • 00:22:28.010 --> 00:22:30.110
  • Here's the great news.
  • 00:22:31.070 --> 00:22:32.140
  • God's word always does its work.
  • 00:22:32.170 --> 00:22:37.000
  • It never returns to Him void without producing
  • 00:22:37.030 --> 00:22:40.040
  • what He sends it forth to accomplish.
  • 00:22:40.070 --> 00:22:42.170
  • So, I want you to think about this.
  • 00:22:42.200 --> 00:22:44.120
  • If we just get in the word of God and we protect our hearts,
  • 00:22:44.150 --> 00:22:49.140
  • then God's word is the good seed
  • 00:22:49.170 --> 00:22:51.230
  • as long as it falls on good ground,
  • 00:22:51.260 --> 00:22:54.160
  • and we have that responsibility.
  • 00:22:54.190 --> 00:22:56.230
  • It doesn't mean we're perfect.
  • 00:22:56.260 --> 00:22:58.060
  • It just simply means we protect our hearts.
  • 00:22:58.090 --> 00:23:00.200
  • So I want to encourage you.
  • 00:23:00.230 --> 00:23:02.030
  • Project your heart.
  • 00:23:02.060 --> 00:23:03.150
  • The Bible says guard your heart and when we do that
  • 00:23:03.180 --> 00:23:07.050
  • and when we put God's word in our heart,
  • 00:23:07.080 --> 00:23:09.140
  • here's the great news.
  • 00:23:09.170 --> 00:23:10.160
  • God's word always works.
  • 00:23:10.190 --> 00:23:14.180
  • Always.
  • 00:23:14.210 --> 00:23:16.020

  • I'll see you next week.
