  • - Everything that does not
  • 00:00:03.190 --> 00:00:05.000
  • look like joy
  • 00:00:05.000 --> 00:00:06.190
  • in the garment of praise,
  • 00:00:06.190 --> 00:00:08.020
  • take it off.
  • 00:00:08.020 --> 00:00:09.090
  • Everything that does not
  • 00:00:09.090 --> 00:00:10.120
  • look like the armor of God,
  • 00:00:10.120 --> 00:00:12.100
  • take it off.
  • 00:00:12.100 --> 00:00:13.120
  • Everything that doesn't
  • 00:00:13.120 --> 00:00:14.110
  • look like victory,
  • 00:00:14.110 --> 00:00:15.270
  • take it off.
  • 00:00:15.270 --> 00:00:17.090
  • His righteousness is my garment,
  • 00:00:17.090 --> 00:00:19.160
  • and His victory is my guarantee.
  • 00:00:19.160 --> 00:00:22.130
  • When you know
  • 00:00:22.130 --> 00:00:23.030
  • where it comes from,
  • 00:00:23.030 --> 00:00:24.280
  • you know how it comes out.
  • 00:00:24.280 --> 00:00:27.020
  • That's how you can already
  • 00:00:27.020 --> 00:00:28.170
  • put a smile on,
  • 00:00:28.170 --> 00:00:29.230
  • even though
  • 00:00:29.230 --> 00:00:30.160
  • you're still going through
  • 00:00:30.160 --> 00:00:32.090
  • the most difficult days
  • 00:00:32.090 --> 00:00:33.160
  • - And, the Bible says that,
  • 00:00:37.140 --> 00:00:38.140
  • when Moses had crossed over
  • 00:00:38.140 --> 00:00:40.080
  • the Red Sea with the nation,
  • 00:00:40.080 --> 00:00:42.130
  • he stretched his staff
  • 00:00:42.130 --> 00:00:43.180
  • back over the sea,
  • 00:00:43.180 --> 00:00:45.080
  • the same sea that the nation
  • 00:00:45.080 --> 00:00:46.290
  • had just passed through
  • 00:00:46.290 --> 00:00:48.210
  • and that sea collapsed
  • 00:00:48.210 --> 00:00:50.040
  • on their enemies,
  • 00:00:50.040 --> 00:00:51.190
  • and, we believe that
  • 00:00:51.190 --> 00:00:52.150
  • we are in the season today
  • 00:00:52.150 --> 00:00:54.120
  • where God has the ability,
  • 00:00:54.120 --> 00:00:56.020
  • if we have faith to believe
  • 00:00:56.020 --> 00:00:58.240
  • that He is about
  • 00:00:58.240 --> 00:00:59.090
  • to flip the flow.
  • 00:00:59.090 --> 00:01:01.060
  • Touch somebody and say,
  • 00:01:01.060 --> 00:01:02.020
  • "God's about to flip it."
  • 00:01:02.020 --> 00:01:04.030
  • Don't fix things this year
  • 00:01:04.030 --> 00:01:05.050
  • the surface level,
  • 00:01:05.050 --> 00:01:07.190
  • don't fix things this year
  • 00:01:07.190 --> 00:01:09.220
  • at the level
  • 00:01:09.220 --> 00:01:10.060
  • that you see the problem,
  • 00:01:10.080 --> 00:01:13.080
  • seek the Lord and ask God
  • 00:01:13.080 --> 00:01:15.180
  • to show you where it starts,
  • 00:01:15.180 --> 00:01:18.150
  • and where something comes out,
  • 00:01:18.150 --> 00:01:20.200
  • is not usually
  • 00:01:20.200 --> 00:01:21.150
  • where it comes from.
  • 00:01:21.150 --> 00:01:23.040
  • And if we don't get honest
  • 00:01:23.040 --> 00:01:25.070
  • about what we need
  • 00:01:25.070 --> 00:01:26.040
  • from God this year,
  • 00:01:26.040 --> 00:01:28.030
  • we will spend yet another year
  • 00:01:28.030 --> 00:01:30.090
  • mopping up the floor
  • 00:01:30.090 --> 00:01:32.000
  • without finding the pipe
  • 00:01:32.000 --> 00:01:33.060
  • that was busted
  • 00:01:33.060 --> 00:01:34.150
  • that was causing the leak
  • 00:01:34.150 --> 00:01:35.150
  • - Come on, you know
  • 00:01:37.260 --> 00:01:38.170
  • this is the truth.
  • 00:01:38.200 --> 00:01:41.200
  • A lot of times
  • 00:01:41.200 --> 00:01:43.050
  • when I'm angry
  • 00:01:43.050 --> 00:01:43.290
  • it's not really even that angry,
  • 00:01:43.290 --> 00:01:46.220
  • it's that I'm afraid
  • 00:01:46.220 --> 00:01:49.180
  • and rather than be vulnerable
  • 00:01:49.180 --> 00:01:51.160
  • in my fear,
  • 00:01:51.160 --> 00:01:52.220
  • I'd rather express my fear
  • 00:01:52.220 --> 00:01:54.210
  • through anger
  • 00:01:54.210 --> 00:01:55.240
  • as a protective mechanism
  • 00:01:55.240 --> 00:01:58.200
  • and so I'm trying
  • 00:01:58.200 --> 00:02:00.160
  • to work on my temper,
  • 00:02:00.160 --> 00:02:02.080
  • but really what I need
  • 00:02:02.080 --> 00:02:02.280
  • to work on is my trust,
  • 00:02:02.280 --> 00:02:05.030
  • because if I trusted God more,
  • 00:02:05.030 --> 00:02:07.090
  • I wouldn't be afraid
  • 00:02:07.090 --> 00:02:08.190
  • and if I wasn't afraid
  • 00:02:08.190 --> 00:02:09.220
  • I wouldn't find
  • 00:02:09.220 --> 00:02:10.070
  • an expression of anger.
  • 00:02:12.080 --> 00:02:15.080
  • Where is this coming from?
  • 00:02:15.080 --> 00:02:17.130
  • It's great to make a list
  • 00:02:17.130 --> 00:02:18.090
  • at the beginning of the year
  • 00:02:18.090 --> 00:02:20.090
  • of the things that you'd like
  • 00:02:20.090 --> 00:02:21.290
  • to do differently,
  • 00:02:21.290 --> 00:02:24.200
  • but it's better to find out
  • 00:02:24.200 --> 00:02:27.040
  • where it's coming from,
  • 00:02:28.010 --> 00:02:31.010
  • so you don't just
  • 00:02:31.010 --> 00:02:31.180
  • re-create a different issue
  • 00:02:31.280 --> 00:02:34.280
  • that was caused
  • 00:02:34.280 --> 00:02:35.150
  • by the same disease
  • 00:02:35.150 --> 00:02:37.220
  • because you only learned
  • 00:02:37.220 --> 00:02:38.220
  • to take ibuprofen
  • 00:02:38.220 --> 00:02:39.260
  • for the symptoms,
  • 00:02:39.260 --> 00:02:41.160
  • but you never underwent
  • 00:02:41.160 --> 00:02:42.100
  • the surgery to understand
  • 00:02:42.100 --> 00:02:44.290
  • some of the beliefs
  • 00:02:48.170 --> 00:02:51.170
  • beneath the behavior.
  • 00:02:51.170 --> 00:02:54.070
  • Even in relating to people,
  • 00:02:54.070 --> 00:02:55.190
  • I have to remember
  • 00:02:55.190 --> 00:02:58.010
  • that even the way
  • 00:02:58.010 --> 00:02:58.210
  • they're treating me,
  • 00:02:58.210 --> 00:02:59.200
  • might not be a reflection
  • 00:02:59.200 --> 00:03:01.120
  • of how they feel about me,
  • 00:03:01.270 --> 00:03:04.270
  • it might be a reflection
  • 00:03:04.270 --> 00:03:05.210
  • of how they feel
  • 00:03:05.210 --> 00:03:06.080
  • about themselves,
  • 00:03:06.190 --> 00:03:09.190
  • it might be a reflection
  • 00:03:09.190 --> 00:03:11.120
  • of what they're dealing with
  • 00:03:11.120 --> 00:03:13.120
  • in their own time alone,
  • 00:03:13.120 --> 00:03:15.100
  • in the way that
  • 00:03:15.100 --> 00:03:15.250
  • they push me away,
  • 00:03:15.250 --> 00:03:18.030
  • and that's why you really
  • 00:03:18.030 --> 00:03:18.210
  • got to be careful
  • 00:03:18.210 --> 00:03:19.090
  • not to let rejection
  • 00:03:19.090 --> 00:03:20.080
  • take root in your heart,
  • 00:03:20.080 --> 00:03:22.150
  • because sometimes people
  • 00:03:22.150 --> 00:03:23.090
  • are pushing you away,
  • 00:03:23.090 --> 00:03:25.100
  • not because of anything
  • 00:03:25.100 --> 00:03:26.030
  • that is undesirable about you,
  • 00:03:26.030 --> 00:03:29.010
  • but it's actually that
  • 00:03:29.010 --> 00:03:29.280
  • the person finds themselves
  • 00:03:29.280 --> 00:03:31.020
  • so undesirable,
  • 00:03:31.020 --> 00:03:32.120
  • that they don't know how
  • 00:03:32.120 --> 00:03:33.220
  • to let anyone get close,
  • 00:03:33.220 --> 00:03:36.090
  • because to let anybody close
  • 00:03:36.090 --> 00:03:38.090
  • carries a risk with it
  • 00:03:38.090 --> 00:03:39.250
  • that they will be seen
  • 00:03:39.250 --> 00:03:40.180
  • and found out to be less than
  • 00:03:40.180 --> 00:03:43.050
  • which they already believe
  • 00:03:43.050 --> 00:03:44.160
  • that they are,
  • 00:03:44.160 --> 00:03:45.200
  • and you are spending
  • 00:03:45.200 --> 00:03:46.090
  • all of your time
  • 00:03:46.090 --> 00:03:47.110
  • trying to love someone
  • 00:03:47.110 --> 00:03:49.010
  • who is unable
  • 00:03:49.010 --> 00:03:50.000
  • to receive your love
  • 00:03:50.000 --> 00:03:51.160
  • and the rejection is not proof
  • 00:03:51.160 --> 00:03:53.080
  • of your defection,
  • 00:03:53.080 --> 00:03:54.210
  • it is proof of something
  • 00:03:54.210 --> 00:03:55.260
  • in their own life,
  • 00:03:55.260 --> 00:03:56.250
  • but where it shows up
  • 00:03:56.250 --> 00:03:59.000
  • is not necessarily
  • 00:03:59.000 --> 00:03:59.250
  • where it starts.
  • 00:04:03.110 --> 00:04:06.110
  • And Jesus knew that,
  • 00:04:06.110 --> 00:04:08.210
  • He knew that which is why
  • 00:04:08.210 --> 00:04:10.110
  • He didn't go back and forth
  • 00:04:10.110 --> 00:04:11.240
  • with these Pharisees;
  • 00:04:11.240 --> 00:04:14.140
  • He knew better.
  • 00:04:14.140 --> 00:04:16.130
  • He knew where He came from,
  • 00:04:16.130 --> 00:04:18.220
  • and He knew that every plant
  • 00:04:18.220 --> 00:04:21.020
  • that My father does not plant,
  • 00:04:21.020 --> 00:04:23.010
  • will be plucked up.
  • 00:04:23.010 --> 00:04:24.240
  • So, He knew that where it comes,
  • 00:04:25.080 --> 00:04:28.080
  • from determines
  • 00:04:28.080 --> 00:04:29.070
  • how it comes out.
  • 00:04:29.070 --> 00:04:31.010
  • Can I preach a little bit today?
  • 00:04:31.080 --> 00:04:34.080
  • I know you got a lot
  • 00:04:34.080 --> 00:04:35.010
  • on your minds,
  • 00:04:35.010 --> 00:04:35.190
  • and you've gotta
  • 00:04:35.190 --> 00:04:36.160
  • pack lunches for the kids,
  • 00:04:36.160 --> 00:04:38.010
  • and get back to school,
  • 00:04:38.010 --> 00:04:39.240
  • and I know all of that,
  • 00:04:39.240 --> 00:04:40.240
  • but I want to stop and ask
  • 00:04:40.240 --> 00:04:41.280
  • the question today:
  • 00:04:41.280 --> 00:04:43.200
  • where did it come from?
  • 00:04:43.200 --> 00:04:46.060
  • And in my life so often
  • 00:04:46.060 --> 00:04:48.250
  • I have been dealing with things
  • 00:04:48.250 --> 00:04:50.190
  • at the level of visibility
  • 00:04:50.190 --> 00:04:53.150
  • and because I'm dealing with
  • 00:04:53.150 --> 00:04:54.120
  • things at that level --
  • 00:04:54.120 --> 00:04:55.020
  • Jesus takes us inside, He says,
  • 00:04:55.020 --> 00:04:57.140
  • when food goes into the stomach
  • 00:04:57.140 --> 00:05:00.030
  • and comes out the body,
  • 00:05:00.030 --> 00:05:02.060
  • it is like a thought
  • 00:05:02.060 --> 00:05:03.090
  • that goes in the heart
  • 00:05:03.090 --> 00:05:04.180
  • and comes out of the mouth,
  • 00:05:04.180 --> 00:05:05.270
  • he's making an analogy.
  • 00:05:05.270 --> 00:05:07.160
  • And there's not a lot
  • 00:05:07.160 --> 00:05:08.100
  • of scientific, you know,
  • 00:05:08.100 --> 00:05:10.160
  • explanation,
  • 00:05:10.160 --> 00:05:11.220
  • it's not a biology lesson
  • 00:05:11.220 --> 00:05:12.230
  • necessarily,
  • 00:05:12.230 --> 00:05:13.260
  • he's not going into
  • 00:05:13.260 --> 00:05:14.250
  • the small intestine
  • 00:05:14.250 --> 00:05:15.230
  • and the secretion of the fluids
  • 00:05:15.230 --> 00:05:17.100
  • of the kidney, and the pancreas,
  • 00:05:17.100 --> 00:05:19.170
  • did that make any sense?
  • 00:05:19.170 --> 00:05:21.210
  • But He's giving us something
  • 00:05:21.210 --> 00:05:22.240
  • to understand about how
  • 00:05:22.240 --> 00:05:24.120
  • we metabolize our thoughts
  • 00:05:24.120 --> 00:05:26.220
  • and our lives
  • 00:05:26.220 --> 00:05:27.130
  • and even our disappointments
  • 00:05:27.130 --> 00:05:28.230
  • and failures and I think
  • 00:05:28.230 --> 00:05:29.210
  • it's so valuable because
  • 00:05:29.210 --> 00:05:30.270
  • a lot of us started this year
  • 00:05:30.270 --> 00:05:32.040
  • counting calories,
  • 00:05:32.070 --> 00:05:35.070
  • counting carbs,
  • 00:05:35.070 --> 00:05:37.160
  • some of y'all are on paleo
  • 00:05:37.160 --> 00:05:39.190
  • and Keto and counting macros.
  • 00:05:39.210 --> 00:05:42.210
  • I still don't know
  • 00:05:42.210 --> 00:05:43.140
  • what macros are,
  • 00:05:43.140 --> 00:05:44.170
  • but I heard a lot of people
  • 00:05:44.170 --> 00:05:45.160
  • have been counting them,
  • 00:05:45.160 --> 00:05:46.220
  • and I wish you the best
  • 00:05:46.220 --> 00:05:47.240
  • with that, because we all
  • 00:05:47.240 --> 00:05:49.110
  • got to count something.
  • 00:05:49.110 --> 00:05:50.250
  • We've all got to count something
  • 00:05:50.250 --> 00:05:52.230
  • or we're going to keep
  • 00:05:52.230 --> 00:05:53.160
  • counting our waistline
  • 00:05:53.160 --> 00:05:55.100
  • as it expands like
  • 00:05:55.100 --> 00:05:56.200
  • the prayer of Jabez
  • 00:05:56.200 --> 00:05:58.020
  • and God enlarges your territory.
  • 00:05:58.020 --> 00:06:00.090
  • I got to count something
  • 00:06:00.090 --> 00:06:01.160
  • at some point like when
  • 00:06:01.160 --> 00:06:03.110
  • I first married Holly,
  • 00:06:03.110 --> 00:06:05.040
  • she started --
  • 00:06:05.040 --> 00:06:06.130
  • The demon of fried rice
  • 00:06:06.130 --> 00:06:08.030
  • came into our house.
  • 00:06:08.030 --> 00:06:09.260
  • You like how everything's
  • 00:06:09.260 --> 00:06:10.150
  • a demon today?
  • 00:06:10.150 --> 00:06:11.170
  • The demon of Doritos
  • 00:06:11.170 --> 00:06:12.230
  • got in our house
  • 00:06:12.230 --> 00:06:14.100
  • and when I got to size 38
  • 00:06:14.100 --> 00:06:15.270
  • and it was bulging, I mean,
  • 00:06:15.270 --> 00:06:17.240
  • I had a braided belt stretched
  • 00:06:17.240 --> 00:06:19.070
  • across those size 38s
  • 00:06:19.070 --> 00:06:21.110
  • and I started size 30,
  • 00:06:21.110 --> 00:06:23.030
  • 18 months later, I said,
  • 00:06:23.030 --> 00:06:24.180
  • "I got to start counting carbs,
  • 00:06:24.180 --> 00:06:26.210
  • I got to start eating bacon,
  • 00:06:26.210 --> 00:06:28.130
  • I got to get
  • 00:06:28.130 --> 00:06:28.290
  • a healthy alternative,
  • 00:06:28.290 --> 00:06:30.060
  • I got to get the Atkins diet,
  • 00:06:30.060 --> 00:06:32.070
  • I got to have
  • 00:06:32.070 --> 00:06:32.260
  • a low-carb lifestyle.
  • 00:06:32.260 --> 00:06:34.240
  • And you know what the Lord
  • 00:06:34.240 --> 00:06:35.160
  • told me last year
  • 00:06:35.160 --> 00:06:37.000
  • because I was letting
  • 00:06:37.000 --> 00:06:37.210
  • all this toxic talk
  • 00:06:37.210 --> 00:06:39.130
  • and toxic thoughts
  • 00:06:39.130 --> 00:06:40.160
  • just get all in my spirit
  • 00:06:40.160 --> 00:06:42.130
  • and it got me
  • 00:06:42.130 --> 00:06:43.060
  • to a real dark place
  • 00:06:43.060 --> 00:06:44.150
  • and God said,
  • 00:06:44.150 --> 00:06:45.110
  • if you would
  • 00:06:45.110 --> 00:06:46.010
  • count your complaints
  • 00:06:46.010 --> 00:06:47.060
  • like you count your carbs,
  • 00:06:53.010 --> 00:06:56.010
  • and it's funny because
  • 00:06:56.010 --> 00:06:57.170
  • the majority of things
  • 00:06:57.170 --> 00:06:58.160
  • we think we need to do better
  • 00:06:58.160 --> 00:06:59.220
  • this year have to do with
  • 00:06:59.220 --> 00:07:00.250
  • putting stuff in our mouth,
  • 00:07:00.250 --> 00:07:03.070
  • what we put in our mouth,
  • 00:07:03.070 --> 00:07:05.200
  • and maybe you do need
  • 00:07:05.200 --> 00:07:06.110
  • to stop putting some stuff
  • 00:07:06.110 --> 00:07:07.140
  • in your mouth,
  • 00:07:07.140 --> 00:07:09.140
  • but maybe the priority,
  • 00:07:09.140 --> 00:07:11.290
  • flip the flow,
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:14.150
  • is what you put in your heart
  • 00:07:15.040 --> 00:07:18.040
  • because where it comes from
  • 00:07:18.040 --> 00:07:20.170
  • determines where it comes out.
  • 00:07:20.170 --> 00:07:23.160
  • Now, I'm not telling you
  • 00:07:23.160 --> 00:07:24.150
  • what movies to watch
  • 00:07:24.150 --> 00:07:25.240
  • or what music to listen to
  • 00:07:25.240 --> 00:07:26.230
  • this year,
  • 00:07:26.230 --> 00:07:28.100
  • I'm not that kind of preacher.
  • 00:07:28.100 --> 00:07:30.110
  • In fact, I think sometimes
  • 00:07:30.110 --> 00:07:32.280
  • some of the stuff
  • 00:07:32.280 --> 00:07:33.190
  • that we put in our heart
  • 00:07:33.190 --> 00:07:34.220
  • that hurts us the most
  • 00:07:34.220 --> 00:07:36.150
  • has nothing to do
  • 00:07:36.150 --> 00:07:37.120
  • with bad words.
  • 00:07:37.120 --> 00:07:39.100
  • Man, I've heard pagans
  • 00:07:39.100 --> 00:07:41.260
  • speak a word of God
  • 00:07:41.260 --> 00:07:43.150
  • with bad language in it,
  • 00:07:43.150 --> 00:07:45.060
  • and Christians curse
  • 00:07:45.060 --> 00:07:47.040
  • without saying a single
  • 00:07:47.040 --> 00:07:48.020
  • four-letter word.
  • 00:07:48.020 --> 00:07:50.110
  • I've heard Christians say
  • 00:07:50.110 --> 00:07:52.060
  • some of the most hateful,
  • 00:07:52.060 --> 00:07:54.090
  • judgmental, fear inducing
  • 00:07:54.090 --> 00:07:57.050
  • condemnation you've ever heard
  • 00:07:57.050 --> 00:07:59.050
  • in your life,
  • 00:07:59.050 --> 00:08:01.200
  • and listen, this year
  • 00:08:01.200 --> 00:08:03.270
  • I'm guarding my heart.
  • 00:08:03.270 --> 00:08:06.080
  • And I don't mean that
  • 00:08:06.080 --> 00:08:07.000
  • I'm not watching Netflix
  • 00:08:07.000 --> 00:08:08.150
  • and I don't mean,
  • 00:08:08.150 --> 00:08:09.220
  • that's not what
  • 00:08:09.220 --> 00:08:10.070
  • I'm talking about,
  • 00:08:10.070 --> 00:08:10.270
  • I'm not talking about
  • 00:08:10.270 --> 00:08:11.260
  • reading the Old Testament
  • 00:08:11.260 --> 00:08:13.050
  • before next Sunday.
  • 00:08:13.050 --> 00:08:15.010
  • I'm talking about really
  • 00:08:15.010 --> 00:08:16.190
  • paying attention to the types
  • 00:08:16.190 --> 00:08:19.060
  • of pattern of thought
  • 00:08:19.060 --> 00:08:21.220
  • that you allow
  • 00:08:21.220 --> 00:08:22.130
  • your heart to digest
  • 00:08:22.150 --> 00:08:25.150
  • because your spirit
  • 00:08:25.150 --> 00:08:26.100
  • has a digestive system.
  • 00:08:27.150 --> 00:08:30.150
  • Jesus said it's out of
  • 00:08:30.150 --> 00:08:31.080
  • your heart that's causing
  • 00:08:31.080 --> 00:08:32.120
  • you the real problem.
  • 00:08:32.120 --> 00:08:33.110
  • "Pharisees are, like, offended,
  • 00:08:33.110 --> 00:08:35.290
  • Jesus, because You said that
  • 00:08:35.290 --> 00:08:37.150
  • they don't have to wash their
  • 00:08:37.150 --> 00:08:38.130
  • hands before they eat.
  • 00:08:38.130 --> 00:08:39.140
  • Well, they don't,
  • 00:08:39.140 --> 00:08:40.030
  • only Aaron and the priest
  • 00:08:40.030 --> 00:08:41.010
  • had to wash their hands,
  • 00:08:41.010 --> 00:08:42.110
  • but they put traditions
  • 00:08:42.110 --> 00:08:43.170
  • on top of truth
  • 00:08:43.170 --> 00:08:44.110
  • and made it something
  • 00:08:44.110 --> 00:08:45.020
  • that was never supposed to be.
  • 00:08:45.020 --> 00:08:46.210
  • You can wash your hands
  • 00:08:46.210 --> 00:08:47.260
  • all you want.
  • 00:08:47.260 --> 00:08:49.060
  • You can break out
  • 00:08:49.060 --> 00:08:50.100
  • your hand sanitizer
  • 00:08:50.100 --> 00:08:51.230
  • every time Pastor says
  • 00:08:51.230 --> 00:08:53.170
  • touch your neighbor
  • 00:08:53.170 --> 00:08:55.010
  • and squirt it on.
  • 00:08:55.010 --> 00:08:56.000
  • You know,
  • 00:08:56.000 --> 00:08:56.190
  • I was so offended the other day
  • 00:08:56.190 --> 00:08:58.000
  • somebody came up to meet me
  • 00:08:58.000 --> 00:08:59.190
  • and they introduced themselves
  • 00:08:59.190 --> 00:09:01.240
  • and they shook my hand.
  • 00:09:01.240 --> 00:09:03.000
  • I watched them walk away
  • 00:09:03.000 --> 00:09:03.210
  • squirting stuff
  • 00:09:03.210 --> 00:09:04.170
  • all over their hands.
  • 00:09:04.170 --> 00:09:05.240
  • I'm like, well, hey,
  • 00:09:05.240 --> 00:09:07.030
  • I didn't even want
  • 00:09:07.030 --> 00:09:07.180
  • to talk to you.
  • 00:09:12.130 --> 00:09:15.130
  • Don't you wish they made
  • 00:09:15.130 --> 00:09:16.110
  • heart sanitizer
  • 00:09:17.210 --> 00:09:20.210
  • for some of these people
  • 00:09:20.210 --> 00:09:21.240
  • that we have to deal,
  • 00:09:21.240 --> 00:09:23.080
  • for some of these thoughts,
  • 00:09:23.080 --> 00:09:25.070
  • some of these memories,
  • 00:09:25.070 --> 00:09:26.260
  • some of these habits,
  • 00:09:27.000 --> 00:09:30.000
  • wouldn't that be marketable?
  • 00:09:31.210 --> 00:09:34.210
  • I know how to wash my hands,
  • 00:09:34.250 --> 00:09:37.250
  • I know how to make people
  • 00:09:37.250 --> 00:09:38.200
  • think I'm doing okay,
  • 00:09:39.000 --> 00:09:42.000
  • I know how to smile

  • and say I'm fine,
  • 00:09:43.150 --> 00:09:46.020
  • I know how to crop the picture
  • 00:09:46.020 --> 00:09:47.140
  • 12 times and post hashtag
  • 00:09:47.140 --> 00:09:49.110
  • woke up like this.
  • 00:09:49.110 --> 00:09:50.160
  • I know how to wash my hands,
  • 00:09:53.110 --> 00:09:56.110
  • but how do I wash my heart?
  • 00:09:56.250 --> 00:09:59.250
  • and this is where Jesus
  • 00:09:59.250 --> 00:10:00.250
  • is greater than Moses,
  • 00:10:00.250 --> 00:10:03.150
  • Moses went up the mountain
  • 00:10:03.150 --> 00:10:05.260
  • and came down with the law,
  • 00:10:05.260 --> 00:10:07.120
  • Jesus went up on a mountain
  • 00:10:07.120 --> 00:10:09.150
  • and taught a sermon and said,
  • 00:10:09.150 --> 00:10:10.180
  • I didn't come
  • 00:10:10.180 --> 00:10:11.230
  • to abolish the law,
  • 00:10:11.230 --> 00:10:12.260
  • but I came to fulfill it.
  • 00:10:12.260 --> 00:10:15.200
  • I didn't come
  • 00:10:15.200 --> 00:10:16.040
  • to do away with it,
  • 00:10:16.040 --> 00:10:18.050
  • I didn't come so that
  • 00:10:18.050 --> 00:10:19.270
  • the law would not exist,
  • 00:10:19.270 --> 00:10:22.030
  • I came so that I could flip it
  • 00:10:22.030 --> 00:10:24.160
  • and watch this,
  • 00:10:24.160 --> 00:10:25.230
  • that the righteous requirements
  • 00:10:25.230 --> 00:10:27.090
  • of the law might be fully met
  • 00:10:27.090 --> 00:10:30.060
  • in us, not by us.
  • 00:10:30.190 --> 00:10:33.190
  • For you to start
  • 00:10:33.190 --> 00:10:34.090
  • this year, thinking
  • 00:10:34.090 --> 00:10:36.100
  • that there is a future version
  • 00:10:36.100 --> 00:10:37.150
  • of you that God will like more
  • 00:10:37.150 --> 00:10:40.080
  • or a future version of you
  • 00:10:40.080 --> 00:10:41.270
  • that can be happier
  • 00:10:41.270 --> 00:10:43.150
  • is to negate
  • 00:10:43.150 --> 00:10:44.190
  • the very nature of the grace
  • 00:10:44.190 --> 00:10:46.040
  • to came to celebrate
  • 00:10:46.040 --> 00:10:48.030
  • because Jesus came not to
  • 00:10:48.030 --> 00:10:50.100
  • require righteousness,
  • 00:10:50.100 --> 00:10:52.110
  • but to enable righteousness.
  • 00:10:52.110 --> 00:10:55.080
  • That's what the cross was,
  • 00:10:55.080 --> 00:10:57.030
  • you understand that
  • 00:10:57.030 --> 00:10:58.010
  • when Jesus died on the cross
  • 00:10:58.010 --> 00:11:00.160
  • the Angels did not
  • 00:11:00.160 --> 00:11:01.130
  • get nervous in heaven.
  • 00:11:01.130 --> 00:11:03.190
  • The Angels didn't wring
  • 00:11:03.190 --> 00:11:04.260
  • their hands in heaven,
  • 00:11:04.260 --> 00:11:06.130
  • the Angels didn't start
  • 00:11:06.130 --> 00:11:07.200
  • devising a backup plan
  • 00:11:07.200 --> 00:11:09.020
  • in heaven because the angels
  • 00:11:09.020 --> 00:11:11.060
  • in heaven knew where Jesus
  • 00:11:11.060 --> 00:11:13.000
  • came from and when you know
  • 00:11:13.000 --> 00:11:15.140
  • where it comes from
  • 00:11:15.140 --> 00:11:18.050
  • you know how it comes out
  • 00:11:18.140 --> 00:11:21.140
  • and even when they beat Him
  • 00:11:21.140 --> 00:11:23.120
  • and even when they mocked Him,
  • 00:11:23.120 --> 00:11:25.110
  • my voice is tired,
  • 00:11:25.110 --> 00:11:26.110
  • I preached three times,
  • 00:11:26.110 --> 00:11:27.150
  • I could use some help.
  • 00:11:27.150 --> 00:11:28.260
  • Even when they buried Him
  • 00:11:28.260 --> 00:11:30.240
  • in the grave
  • 00:11:30.240 --> 00:11:31.140
  • of Joseph of Arimathea,
  • 00:11:31.140 --> 00:11:33.170
  • heaven didn't get nervous
  • 00:11:33.170 --> 00:11:35.280
  • because we know
  • 00:11:35.280 --> 00:11:37.000
  • where He came from
  • 00:11:37.000 --> 00:11:38.290
  • so we know how this comes out.
  • 00:11:43.010 --> 00:11:46.010
  • Even before I go through
  • 00:11:46.010 --> 00:11:47.160
  • the trial this year,
  • 00:11:47.160 --> 00:11:49.050
  • I know how this comes out
  • 00:11:49.050 --> 00:11:51.060
  • because He who began
  • 00:11:51.060 --> 00:11:52.150
  • a good work in me
  • 00:11:52.150 --> 00:11:55.030
  • will be faithful
  • 00:11:55.030 --> 00:11:56.080
  • to complete it.
  • 00:11:56.080 --> 00:11:58.130
  • Shout for 19 seconds
  • 00:11:58.130 --> 00:11:59.220
  • That's why Joshua said, "Shout
  • 00:12:10.220 --> 00:12:12.100
  • before the first brick
  • 00:12:12.100 --> 00:12:13.220
  • hits the ground."
  • 00:12:13.220 --> 00:12:15.090
  • I know where the command
  • 00:12:15.090 --> 00:12:16.160
  • came from so I know
  • 00:12:16.160 --> 00:12:18.130
  • how the battle turns out.
  • 00:12:20.010 --> 00:12:23.010
  • It's the spirit of faith
  • 00:12:23.010 --> 00:12:24.060
  • to let you know
  • 00:12:24.060 --> 00:12:25.210
  • that if it comes from God,
  • 00:12:25.210 --> 00:12:28.150
  • if He called you,
  • 00:12:28.150 --> 00:12:30.070
  • if formed you,
  • 00:12:30.070 --> 00:12:32.110
  • if your help comes from Him,
  • 00:12:32.170 --> 00:12:35.170
  • you can predict in advance
  • 00:12:35.170 --> 00:12:38.130
  • how this comes out.
  • 00:12:39.140 --> 00:12:42.140
  • Already know the outcome.
  • 00:12:44.170 --> 00:12:47.170
  • Even when I was reading
  • 00:12:47.170 --> 00:12:48.170
  • the Scripture,
  • 00:12:48.170 --> 00:12:49.070
  • God said, "Flip it",
  • 00:12:49.070 --> 00:12:51.110
  • because it said evil thoughts
  • 00:12:51.110 --> 00:12:54.010
  • come from your heart
  • 00:12:54.010 --> 00:12:55.250
  • and it's a hard thing
  • 00:12:55.250 --> 00:12:57.290
  • to sort through your heart
  • 00:12:57.290 --> 00:12:59.280
  • to know what thoughts
  • 00:12:59.280 --> 00:13:00.290
  • came from God,
  • 00:13:00.290 --> 00:13:02.160
  • and what thoughts
  • 00:13:02.160 --> 00:13:03.010
  • came from ego,
  • 00:13:03.010 --> 00:13:04.190
  • and what thoughts
  • 00:13:04.190 --> 00:13:05.040
  • came from grandpa,
  • 00:13:05.040 --> 00:13:06.270
  • and what thoughts
  • 00:13:06.270 --> 00:13:07.280
  • came from Fox News,
  • 00:13:07.280 --> 00:13:09.290
  • and what thoughts
  • 00:13:09.290 --> 00:13:10.170
  • came from Bloomberg
  • 00:13:10.170 --> 00:13:12.010
  • and what thoughts
  • 00:13:12.010 --> 00:13:12.210
  • came from Twitter,
  • 00:13:12.210 --> 00:13:14.150
  • and what thoughts came from --
  • 00:13:15.060 --> 00:13:18.060
  • what's the other one?
  • 00:13:18.060 --> 00:13:19.140
  • CNN and Facebook and Uncle Ray
  • 00:13:20.160 --> 00:13:23.160
  • and Uncle Tim and Aunt Cindy,
  • 00:13:23.160 --> 00:13:26.120
  • and Aunt Martha,
  • 00:13:26.120 --> 00:13:27.200
  • it's hard to know,
  • 00:13:27.200 --> 00:13:29.130
  • it's hard to know.
  • 00:13:29.130 --> 00:13:32.120
  • It's hard to know
  • 00:13:32.120 --> 00:13:32.270
  • what's in your heart
  • 00:13:32.270 --> 00:13:35.060
  • and that's why we need
  • 00:13:35.060 --> 00:13:35.240
  • the Holy Spirit this year,
  • 00:13:37.000 --> 00:13:40.000
  • that's why we need Jesus.
  • 00:13:41.160 --> 00:13:44.160
  • I know it sounds simple,
  • 00:13:44.160 --> 00:13:46.210
  • and maybe this teaching
  • 00:13:46.210 --> 00:13:47.150
  • is too elementary
  • 00:13:47.150 --> 00:13:48.180
  • and some people are
  • 00:13:48.180 --> 00:13:49.090
  • little bored with it,
  • 00:13:49.090 --> 00:13:51.100
  • but I need help
  • 00:13:51.100 --> 00:13:53.000
  • with my heart this year.
  • 00:13:54.220 --> 00:13:57.220
  • I did help because some stuff
  • 00:13:57.220 --> 00:13:58.270
  • in there is from God
  • 00:13:58.270 --> 00:14:01.060
  • and some stuff is not.
  • 00:14:01.060 --> 00:14:04.030
  • And I need help sorting it out
  • 00:14:05.130 --> 00:14:08.130
  • because I sent Pastor Craig
  • 00:14:08.130 --> 00:14:10.040
  • some Christmas gifts this year,
  • 00:14:10.040 --> 00:14:12.260
  • always send him clothes
  • 00:14:12.260 --> 00:14:13.240
  • for Christmas in case
  • 00:14:13.240 --> 00:14:14.240
  • He wants to wear them
  • 00:14:14.240 --> 00:14:15.200
  • to preach in the new year.
  • 00:14:15.200 --> 00:14:17.140
  • And he's like, one of
  • 00:14:17.140 --> 00:14:18.050
  • my best friends
  • 00:14:18.050 --> 00:14:19.020
  • so it's not weird
  • 00:14:19.020 --> 00:14:19.200
  • when I send him clothes,
  • 00:14:19.200 --> 00:14:21.110
  • he gets it,
  • 00:14:21.110 --> 00:14:21.290
  • he doesn't take it
  • 00:14:21.290 --> 00:14:22.170
  • as an insult, like
  • 00:14:22.170 --> 00:14:23.110
  • I think he doesn't know
  • 00:14:23.110 --> 00:14:24.000
  • how to dress,
  • 00:14:24.000 --> 00:14:25.160
  • but he likes what I send him.
  • 00:14:25.160 --> 00:14:27.110
  • I keep it a little
  • 00:14:27.110 --> 00:14:28.020
  • on the youthful side for him,
  • 00:14:28.020 --> 00:14:29.250
  • he's 51, but I feel like
  • 00:14:29.250 --> 00:14:32.040
  • I don't wanna push him too far.
  • 00:14:32.040 --> 00:14:34.190
  • I'm not gon' have him up there,
  • 00:14:34.190 --> 00:14:35.180
  • dripping in off-white,
  • 00:14:35.180 --> 00:14:36.210
  • looking ridiculous
  • 00:14:36.210 --> 00:14:37.180
  • from head to toe.
  • 00:14:37.180 --> 00:14:40.000
  • And so I know just
  • 00:14:40.000 --> 00:14:41.130
  • where to push him
  • 00:14:41.130 --> 00:14:42.020
  • so He trusts me,
  • 00:14:42.020 --> 00:14:44.030
  • He trusts me, that's the point
  • 00:14:44.030 --> 00:14:46.030
  • I want to make, He trusts me.
  • 00:14:46.030 --> 00:14:48.030
  • And this year I sent him
  • 00:14:48.030 --> 00:14:48.270
  • a nice little box of clothes
  • 00:14:49.290 --> 00:14:52.290
  • Two shirts in the box,
  • 00:14:52.290 --> 00:14:54.270
  • one of them was like
  • 00:14:54.270 --> 00:14:57.200
  • a zip kind of like
  • 00:14:57.200 --> 00:14:59.150
  • a zip sweater thing
  • 00:14:59.150 --> 00:15:01.000
  • it came right there
  • 00:15:01.000 --> 00:15:02.060
  • and then he shirt,
  • 00:15:02.130 --> 00:15:05.130
  • a Burberry shirt
  • 00:15:05.130 --> 00:15:06.260
  • to put under the sweater,
  • 00:15:06.260 --> 00:15:08.180
  • and I told him and the note,
  • 00:15:08.180 --> 00:15:10.090
  • "Merry Christmas;
  • 00:15:10.090 --> 00:15:11.250
  • here's your clothes.
  • 00:15:11.250 --> 00:15:13.140
  • You can wear it
  • 00:15:13.140 --> 00:15:14.140
  • three different ways.
  • 00:15:15.110 --> 00:15:18.110
  • The sweater without the shirt,
  • 00:15:18.110 --> 00:15:20.120
  • the shirt without the sweater,
  • 00:15:20.120 --> 00:15:22.060
  • the shirt under the sweater,
  • 00:15:22.060 --> 00:15:23.250
  • you're welcome,
  • 00:15:23.250 --> 00:15:24.230
  • Merry Christmas."
  • 00:15:24.230 --> 00:15:26.000
  • I'm an efficient stylist.
  • 00:15:26.010 --> 00:15:29.010
  • I'm thinking 'bout
  • 00:15:29.010 --> 00:15:29.140
  • having a side hustle
  • 00:15:29.140 --> 00:15:30.170
  • dressing preachers,
  • 00:15:30.170 --> 00:15:31.150
  • but that's not the point.
  • 00:15:32.190 --> 00:15:35.190
  • The point is
  • 00:15:35.190 --> 00:15:36.060
  • he sent me a picture of him
  • 00:15:36.060 --> 00:15:37.070
  • wearing the clothes
  • 00:15:37.070 --> 00:15:38.020
  • and he put on the clothes.
  • 00:15:38.020 --> 00:15:40.260
  • He put, first of all,
  • 00:15:40.260 --> 00:15:42.020
  • the sweater on, it looked good,
  • 00:15:42.020 --> 00:15:44.080
  • then he put the shirt on
  • 00:15:44.080 --> 00:15:45.060
  • looked good.
  • 00:15:45.060 --> 00:15:45.150
  • Then there was a third picture
  • 00:15:45.150 --> 00:15:48.070
  • and he was wearing something
  • 00:15:48.070 --> 00:15:49.060
  • I never saw before in my life.
  • 00:15:50.050 --> 00:15:53.050
  • It was baggy, bright red.
  • 00:15:54.070 --> 00:15:57.070
  • Am I telling the truth?
  • 00:15:57.070 --> 00:15:58.240
  • Because I sent it to Jess
  • 00:15:58.240 --> 00:16:00.230
  • who works in my office now
  • 00:16:00.230 --> 00:16:01.290
  • for almost 10 years.
  • 00:16:01.290 --> 00:16:02.280
  • I said, "We didn't
  • 00:16:02.280 --> 00:16:04.000
  • send him this, did we?"
  • 00:16:04.010 --> 00:16:07.010
  • She said, "No, sir,
  • 00:16:07.010 --> 00:16:07.290
  • I never saw that before
  • 00:16:07.290 --> 00:16:08.240
  • in my life."
  • 00:16:08.240 --> 00:16:11.050
  • I texted him back
  • 00:16:11.050 --> 00:16:11.220
  • the good news, first.
  • 00:16:11.220 --> 00:16:14.010
  • "All the stuff
  • 00:16:14.010 --> 00:16:14.150
  • I sent you is dope,
  • 00:16:14.150 --> 00:16:17.040
  • the good news.
  • 00:16:17.070 --> 00:16:20.070
  • The bad news is,
  • 00:16:20.070 --> 00:16:21.050
  • that third thing you put on,
  • 00:16:21.050 --> 00:16:24.010
  • I don't know
  • 00:16:24.010 --> 00:16:24.130
  • where that came from."
  • 00:16:25.160 --> 00:16:28.160
  • But he trusted me so much
  • 00:16:28.230 --> 00:16:31.230
  • that he said,
  • 00:16:31.230 --> 00:16:32.060
  • "If it came from Furtick..."
  • 00:16:32.280 --> 00:16:35.280
  • -- this is real faith, y'all.
  • 00:16:37.030 --> 00:16:40.030
  • He said, "Even though
  • 00:16:40.030 --> 00:16:40.240
  • I think it looks ridiculous,
  • 00:16:40.240 --> 00:16:43.120
  • if it came from Furtick..."
  • 00:16:43.120 --> 00:16:45.110
  • -- and I said, "But it didn't
  • 00:16:45.110 --> 00:16:46.090
  • come from Furtick,
  • 00:16:46.090 --> 00:16:47.120
  • not this one,
  • 00:16:47.120 --> 00:16:49.040
  • I am not taking credit
  • 00:16:49.040 --> 00:16:50.190
  • for this fashion decision,
  • 00:16:50.190 --> 00:16:52.290
  • this did not come from Furtick.
  • 00:16:52.290 --> 00:16:54.240
  • You need to find out
  • 00:16:54.240 --> 00:16:55.160
  • what happened."
  • 00:16:55.160 --> 00:16:56.190
  • And he found out what happened
  • 00:16:56.190 --> 00:16:58.110
  • because one of his staff members
  • 00:16:58.110 --> 00:17:00.150
  • who knew how much he trusted me
  • 00:17:00.160 --> 00:17:03.160
  • saw the box that came from me
  • 00:17:03.240 --> 00:17:06.240
  • and decided to go in the box,
  • 00:17:06.240 --> 00:17:09.150
  • open the box --
  • 00:17:09.150 --> 00:17:11.050
  • can y'all believe this?
  • 00:17:11.050 --> 00:17:13.130
  • Find the ugliest sweater
  • 00:17:13.130 --> 00:17:14.240
  • they can find,
  • 00:17:14.240 --> 00:17:16.060
  • stick it in the box
  • 00:17:16.060 --> 00:17:17.050
  • under the stuff that I picked,
  • 00:17:17.050 --> 00:17:19.170
  • and they knew he trusted me
  • 00:17:19.170 --> 00:17:21.110
  • so much that he would wear
  • 00:17:21.110 --> 00:17:24.060
  • whatever he thought
  • 00:17:24.060 --> 00:17:25.050
  • came from me,
  • 00:17:25.050 --> 00:17:26.200
  • but the devil is a liar.
  • 00:17:26.200 --> 00:17:29.060
  • I texted him and I said,
  • 00:17:29.060 --> 00:17:30.130
  • "You need to take
  • 00:17:30.130 --> 00:17:31.060
  • that out the box,
  • 00:17:31.060 --> 00:17:32.280
  • that was not from me."
  • 00:17:32.280 --> 00:17:34.220
  • I hear the spirit of God saying,
  • 00:17:34.220 --> 00:17:36.250
  • "You been wearing
  • 00:17:36.250 --> 00:17:37.140
  • some stuff in 2018
  • 00:17:37.160 --> 00:17:40.160
  • that I did not put in your box.
  • 00:17:40.170 --> 00:17:43.170
  • It's time for you
  • 00:17:43.170 --> 00:17:44.100
  • to go through the box
  • 00:17:44.100 --> 00:17:46.040
  • and everything that does not
  • 00:17:46.040 --> 00:17:47.160
  • look like joy
  • 00:17:47.160 --> 00:17:49.050
  • in the garment of praise,
  • 00:17:49.050 --> 00:17:50.180
  • take it off.
  • 00:17:50.180 --> 00:17:51.250
  • Everything that does not
  • 00:17:51.250 --> 00:17:52.280
  • look like the armor of God,
  • 00:17:52.280 --> 00:17:54.260
  • take it off.
  • 00:17:54.260 --> 00:17:55.280
  • Everything that doesn't
  • 00:17:55.280 --> 00:17:56.270
  • look like victory,
  • 00:17:56.270 --> 00:17:58.110
  • take it off.
  • 00:17:58.110 --> 00:17:59.180
  • I'm coming into
  • 00:17:59.180 --> 00:18:00.120
  • a new year drippin',
  • 00:18:00.120 --> 00:18:02.030
  • I'm not coming into
  • 00:18:02.030 --> 00:18:03.030
  • a new year wearing rags.
  • 00:18:03.030 --> 00:18:05.060
  • His righteousness is my garment
  • 00:18:05.060 --> 00:18:07.130
  • and His victory is my guarantee,
  • 00:18:07.130 --> 00:18:10.120
  • shout about it, church.
  • 00:18:10.120 --> 00:18:12.100
  • I feel the Holy Ghost.
  • 00:18:12.100 --> 00:18:14.040
  • [cheering and applause]
  • 00:18:17.170 --> 00:18:20.170
  • So, when they buried Him,
  • 00:18:20.170 --> 00:18:23.060
  • they didn't have to be afraid.
  • 00:18:23.060 --> 00:18:25.070
  • When you know
  • 00:18:25.070 --> 00:18:25.270
  • where it comes from,
  • 00:18:25.270 --> 00:18:27.250
  • you know how it comes out.
  • 00:18:27.250 --> 00:18:29.250
  • That's how you can already
  • 00:18:29.250 --> 00:18:31.120
  • put a smile on even though
  • 00:18:31.120 --> 00:18:33.120
  • you're still going through
  • 00:18:33.120 --> 00:18:35.040
  • the most difficult days
  • 00:18:35.040 --> 00:18:36.150
  • of your life,
  • 00:18:39.160 --> 00:18:42.160
  • and because my righteousness
  • 00:18:42.160 --> 00:18:44.090
  • does not come from me,
  • 00:18:44.090 --> 00:18:46.290
  • or from washing my hands,
  • 00:18:46.290 --> 00:18:49.130
  • or from sticking to my diet,
  • 00:18:49.130 --> 00:18:52.070
  • or from losing 23 pounds,
  • 00:18:52.180 --> 00:18:55.180
  • 'cause wouldn't it be a shame
  • 00:18:55.180 --> 00:18:57.090
  • to lose 23 pounds
  • 00:18:57.090 --> 00:18:59.150
  • and still hate yourself
  • 00:18:59.150 --> 00:19:01.180
  • because you fixed it
  • 00:19:01.180 --> 00:19:02.280
  • on the surface,
  • 00:19:02.280 --> 00:19:04.060
  • but you didn't receive it
  • 00:19:04.060 --> 00:19:05.140
  • at the source?
  • 00:19:05.140 --> 00:19:06.270
  • This year I'm gonna flip it,
  • 00:19:15.000 --> 00:19:17.230
  • and I'm gonna stand
  • 00:19:17.230 --> 00:19:19.000
  • in the reality that
  • 00:19:19.000 --> 00:19:19.260
  • I am the righteousness of God
  • 00:19:19.260 --> 00:19:21.090
  • not because of what I've done.
  • 00:19:21.090 --> 00:19:22.190
  • In fact, you can stand
  • 00:19:22.190 --> 00:19:23.140
  • and I'll pray that
  • 00:19:23.140 --> 00:19:24.030
  • for you right now.
  • 00:19:24.030 --> 00:19:25.090
  • No one leaving,
  • 00:19:25.090 --> 00:19:26.020
  • no one moving.
  • 00:19:26.020 --> 00:19:27.250
  • This is your year to flip it,
  • 00:19:27.250 --> 00:19:30.200
  • this is your year
  • 00:19:30.200 --> 00:19:31.160
  • to evaluate your traditions,
  • 00:19:31.160 --> 00:19:34.090
  • the empty traditions
  • 00:19:34.090 --> 00:19:37.020
  • that have told you
  • 00:19:37.020 --> 00:19:38.130
  • layers of lies that
  • 00:19:38.130 --> 00:19:40.150
  • there is something
  • 00:19:40.150 --> 00:19:41.070
  • that you must to.
  • 00:19:41.070 --> 00:19:43.270
  • You gotta wash your hands.
  • 00:19:48.020 --> 00:19:51.020
  • Jesus said,
  • 00:19:51.020 --> 00:19:51.150
  • "That's your tradition,
  • 00:19:51.150 --> 00:19:52.070
  • that's not the truth."
  • 00:19:52.070 --> 00:19:55.030
  • Watch and flip it.
  • 00:19:55.030 --> 00:19:56.220
  • He said, "Normally the unclean,
  • 00:19:56.220 --> 00:19:59.160
  • if it touches the clean,
  • 00:19:59.160 --> 00:20:00.220
  • it makes the clean unclean,
  • 00:20:00.220 --> 00:20:03.090
  • but I'm not a high priest,
  • 00:20:03.090 --> 00:20:04.140
  • like Aaron;
  • 00:20:04.140 --> 00:20:06.090
  • I'm a great, high priest.
  • 00:20:07.080 --> 00:20:10.080
  • So, if I touch you,
  • 00:20:10.080 --> 00:20:12.110
  • I don't become unclean,
  • 00:20:12.110 --> 00:20:14.100
  • you become clean."
  • 00:20:16.210 --> 00:20:19.210
  • Somebody shout, "Flip it."
  • 00:20:20.020 --> 00:20:23.020
  • I wanna change by grace,
  • 00:20:23.020 --> 00:20:24.090
  • this year, through faith,
  • 00:20:24.090 --> 00:20:26.070
  • not of works,
  • 00:20:26.070 --> 00:20:28.200
  • because if I fix it
  • 00:20:28.200 --> 00:20:29.110
  • at the surface,
  • 00:20:29.110 --> 00:20:30.030
  • I have to sustain it
  • 00:20:30.030 --> 00:20:31.040
  • in my own strength,
  • 00:20:31.040 --> 00:20:33.170
  • and so I'm not going on a diet
  • 00:20:34.080 --> 00:20:37.080
  • so that I will be likable,
  • 00:20:37.100 --> 00:20:40.100
  • I'm going on a diet
  • 00:20:40.100 --> 00:20:41.200
  • so my knees don't hurt.
  • 00:20:41.200 --> 00:20:43.220
  • See the difference?
  • 00:20:43.220 --> 00:20:45.160
  • Flip it.
  • 00:20:45.160 --> 00:20:47.090
  • Flip it.
  • 00:20:47.090 --> 00:20:47.230
  • I'm not going back to school
  • 00:20:47.230 --> 00:20:49.020
  • to get my degree
  • 00:20:49.020 --> 00:20:49.280
  • so I can finally
  • 00:20:49.280 --> 00:20:50.180
  • stop feeling an idiot,
  • 00:20:50.180 --> 00:20:52.250
  • I'm going back to school
  • 00:20:52.250 --> 00:20:53.130
  • to get my degree
  • 00:20:53.130 --> 00:20:54.170
  • so that I can move forward
  • 00:20:54.170 --> 00:20:55.160
  • into the opportunities
  • 00:20:55.160 --> 00:20:56.280
  • that God has for me,
  • 00:20:56.280 --> 00:20:58.260
  • not to earn approval,
  • 00:20:58.280 --> 00:21:02.000
  • not to live up to a standard,
  • 00:21:02.000 --> 00:21:03.040
  • but to live out what
  • 00:21:03.040 --> 00:21:03.290
  • Christ has already given me
  • 00:21:03.290 --> 00:21:06.150
  • and to me this is the beauty
  • 00:21:06.150 --> 00:21:08.000
  • of the gospel that everything
  • 00:21:08.000 --> 00:21:09.290
  • that needs to be done for me
  • 00:21:09.290 --> 00:21:12.120
  • to be right with God
  • 00:21:12.120 --> 00:21:13.110
  • is already done.
  • 00:21:13.110 --> 00:21:14.020
  • Bow your head.
  • 00:21:14.020 --> 00:21:15.030
  • I've said what the Lord
  • 00:21:15.030 --> 00:21:15.240
  • told me to say,
  • 00:21:15.240 --> 00:21:16.150
  • and I pray that you received it.
  • 00:21:17.280 --> 00:21:20.280
  • This is your year to flip it.
  • 00:21:20.280 --> 00:21:23.060
  • Over the course
  • 00:21:23.060 --> 00:21:23.230
  • of the next several weeks,
  • 00:21:23.230 --> 00:21:25.120
  • we will be talking about
  • 00:21:25.120 --> 00:21:27.130
  • some very practical things
  • 00:21:27.130 --> 00:21:29.100
  • some very personal things.
  • 00:21:29.240 --> 00:21:32.240
  • Maybe last year
  • 00:21:32.240 --> 00:21:33.150
  • you attended church
  • 00:21:33.150 --> 00:21:34.180
  • occasionally when the kids
  • 00:21:34.180 --> 00:21:36.060
  • didn't have a game
  • 00:21:36.060 --> 00:21:37.000
  • and you weren't too tired.
  • 00:21:37.000 --> 00:21:39.010
  • Maybe this is
  • 00:21:39.010 --> 00:21:39.160
  • your year to flip it
  • 00:21:39.160 --> 00:21:41.210
  • and to make a real
  • 00:21:41.210 --> 00:21:42.110
  • commitment this year,
  • 00:21:42.110 --> 00:21:42.280
  • that I'm gonna sanitize my heart
  • 00:21:43.030 --> 00:21:46.030
  • by being in the presence of God
  • 00:21:46.030 --> 00:21:47.130
  • with other people
  • 00:21:47.130 --> 00:21:48.240
  • and really letting God's work
  • 00:21:48.240 --> 00:21:49.270
  • cleanse me and uproot the things
  • 00:21:49.270 --> 00:21:52.240
  • that have been destroying me.
  • 00:21:52.240 --> 00:21:55.180
  • Lord, we thank you today
  • 00:21:55.180 --> 00:21:57.200
  • for Jesus Christ
  • 00:21:57.200 --> 00:21:58.200
  • Who came to earth to flip it.
  • 00:22:00.030 --> 00:22:03.030
  • We thank you today that
  • 00:22:03.030 --> 00:22:03.260
  • He who knew no sin became sin
  • 00:22:03.260 --> 00:22:06.130
  • that we might become
  • 00:22:06.130 --> 00:22:07.060
  • the righteousness of God.
  • 00:22:07.060 --> 00:22:08.220
  • Somebody shout,
  • 00:22:08.220 --> 00:22:09.070
  • "That's what I am."
  • 00:22:09.070 --> 00:22:10.070
  • - CONGREGATION: That's
  • 00:22:10.070 --> 00:22:10.230
  • what I am.
  • 00:22:10.230 --> 00:22:12.000
  • - And so now, Lord,
  • 00:22:12.000 --> 00:22:12.270
  • may all that we do
  • 00:22:12.270 --> 00:22:14.030
  • and don't do this year,
  • 00:22:14.030 --> 00:22:16.040
  • flow from a heart
  • 00:22:16.040 --> 00:22:16.290
  • that is already loved.
  • 00:22:17.100 --> 00:22:20.100
  • Your word says that,
  • 00:22:20.100 --> 00:22:21.030
  • "As the rain falls
  • 00:22:21.030 --> 00:22:22.060
  • from the heavens
  • 00:22:22.060 --> 00:22:24.020
  • and waters the earth,
  • 00:22:24.020 --> 00:22:26.180
  • and makes it bud and flourish
  • 00:22:26.180 --> 00:22:28.070
  • and bring forth springtime,
  • 00:22:28.070 --> 00:22:29.120
  • so shall Your word be
  • 00:22:29.120 --> 00:22:30.100
  • that proceeds forth
  • 00:22:30.100 --> 00:22:31.030
  • from Your mouth
  • 00:22:31.030 --> 00:22:32.260
  • it will not return to You void,
  • 00:22:32.260 --> 00:22:34.010
  • but will accomplish
  • 00:22:34.010 --> 00:22:35.230
  • what You sent it to do."
  • 00:22:35.230 --> 00:22:37.210
  • We thank You for sending
  • 00:22:37.210 --> 00:22:38.230
  • Your word to us for a new year.
  • 00:22:38.230 --> 00:22:41.180
  • We thank You for

  • the flow of Your word
  • 00:22:42.050 --> 00:22:43.050
  • in this place today.
  • 00:22:43.050 --> 00:22:45.120
  • I pray now that
  • 00:22:45.120 --> 00:22:46.020
  • it would accomplish
  • 00:22:46.020 --> 00:22:46.290
  • in our lives a great harvest
  • 00:22:47.090 --> 00:22:50.090
  • of righteousness
  • 00:22:50.090 --> 00:22:52.010
  • for those who have
  • 00:22:52.010 --> 00:22:52.180
  • - Well, I don't know
  • 00:22:55.090 --> 00:22:55.280
  • if you're like me,
  • 00:22:55.280 --> 00:22:56.160
  • but it's easy for me
  • 00:22:56.160 --> 00:22:57.180
  • to feel stuck.
  • 00:22:57.180 --> 00:22:59.070
  • Stuck in a pattern,
  • 00:22:59.070 --> 00:23:00.290
  • stuck in a way of thinking,
  • 00:23:00.290 --> 00:23:02.120
  • even stuck in a mistake,
  • 00:23:02.120 --> 00:23:04.160
  • and all of a sudden,
  • 00:23:04.160 --> 00:23:05.040
  • it feels like
  • 00:23:05.040 --> 00:23:05.280
  • all the progress I made
  • 00:23:05.280 --> 00:23:07.000
  • was for nothing,
  • 00:23:07.000 --> 00:23:08.040
  • my priorities
  • 00:23:08.040 --> 00:23:08.240
  • are out of whack.
  • 00:23:08.240 --> 00:23:10.020
  • And once you know you're stuck,
  • 00:23:10.020 --> 00:23:12.130
  • it's difficult
  • 00:23:12.130 --> 00:23:13.010
  • to find your way out, 'cause
  • 00:23:13.010 --> 00:23:14.000
  • you've lost your momentum.
  • 00:23:14.000 --> 00:23:15.260
  • And, I wonder if
  • 00:23:15.260 --> 00:23:16.110
  • you find yourself stuck
  • 00:23:16.110 --> 00:23:17.070
  • in an area of your life today?
  • 00:23:17.070 --> 00:23:19.010
  • this new four-part message
  • 00:23:19.250 --> 00:23:21.060
  • series, called, "Flip the Flow".
  • 00:23:21.060 --> 00:23:23.210
  • It's one of my favorite
  • 00:23:23.210 --> 00:23:24.100
  • titles of a serious, ever,
  • 00:23:24.100 --> 00:23:26.060
  • but it's also some of
  • 00:23:26.060 --> 00:23:27.110
  • my favorite teaching.
  • 00:23:27.110 --> 00:23:28.240
  • We're talking about
  • 00:23:28.240 --> 00:23:29.250
  • turning it around,
  • 00:23:29.250 --> 00:23:31.000
  • getting your momentum
  • 00:23:31.000 --> 00:23:31.210
  • headed in the right direction.
  • 00:23:31.210 --> 00:23:33.130
  • This isn't just
  • 00:23:33.130 --> 00:23:34.040
  • a collection of sermons,
  • 00:23:34.040 --> 00:23:35.090
  • it's really a resource
  • 00:23:35.090 --> 00:23:36.270
  • for change and I'm excited
  • 00:23:36.270 --> 00:23:38.210
  • to see how God will use this
  • 00:23:38.210 --> 00:23:40.240
  • to redirect your life.
  • 00:23:40.240 --> 00:23:42.070
  • So, stop whatever
  • 00:23:42.070 --> 00:23:43.090
  • you're doing right now,
  • 00:23:43.090 --> 00:23:44.280
  • call or go online
  • 00:23:44.280 --> 00:23:45.230
  • and request your copy of
  • 00:23:45.230 --> 00:23:47.060
  • "Flip the Flow",
  • 00:23:47.060 --> 00:23:48.070
  • here's a look at
  • 00:23:48.070 --> 00:23:48.270
  • - When Moses had crossed over
  • 00:23:50.120 --> 00:23:52.040
  • the Red Sea with the nation,
