  • DON'T YOU JUST LOVE THAT LINE.
  • 00:03:05.708 --> 00:03:07.243
  • I WANTED TO CALLTHIS WHOLE SERIES,
  • 00:03:07.243 --> 00:03:08.911
  • LEARNING THE UNFORCEDRHYTHMS OF GRACE
  • 00:03:08.911 --> 00:03:12.115
  • BECAUSE THAT'S SOMETHINGTHAT WE ALL NEED TO DO.
  • 00:03:12.115 --> 00:03:14.751
  • IF WE'RE GOING TO RUN OUR RACE,
  • 00:03:14.751 --> 00:03:16.085
  • IF WE'RE GOING TO FINISHOUR COURSE, WE HAVE TO LEARN
  • 00:03:16.085 --> 00:03:18.655
  • GOD'S UNFORCED RHYTHMS OF GRACE.
  • 00:03:18.655 --> 00:03:21.958
  • HE GOES ON TO SAY,
  • 00:03:21.958 --> 00:03:23.092
  • I WON'T LAY ANYTHING HEAVYOR ILL FITTING ON YOU,
  • 00:03:23.092 --> 00:03:26.529
  • KEEP COMPANY WITH ME ANDYOU'LL LEARN HOW TO LIVE FREELY
  • 00:03:26.529 --> 00:03:30.633
  • AND LIGHTLY, WHO DOESN'T WANTTO LIVE FREELY AND LIGHTLY.
  • 00:03:30.633 --> 00:03:35.571
  • THE FACT IS THAT WE KNOWTHESE VERSES TO BE TRUE,
  • 00:03:35.571 --> 00:03:38.975
  • THEOLOGICALLY ANDOFTEN INTELLECTUALLY.
  • 00:03:38.975 --> 00:03:41.344
  • BUT THE TRUTH IS, ITHINK IF WE'RE ALL HONEST
  • 00:03:41.344 --> 00:03:44.347
  • WE DON'T ALWAYS FEELLIKE THIS IS THE CASE.
  • 00:03:44.347 --> 00:03:48.484
  • IT'S BEEN AN EXTENDEDSEASON OF LOSS AND GRIEF
  • 00:03:48.484 --> 00:03:53.156
  • AND HEARTACHE, FOR MANYCONFUSION AND CHAOS,
  • 00:03:53.156 --> 00:03:57.493
  • DIVISION AND AWHOLE LOT OF TRAUMA.
  • 00:03:57.493 --> 00:04:00.663
  • MOST OF US HAVEEXPERIENCED DAYS OR WEEKS
  • 00:04:00.663 --> 00:04:03.866
  • AND MAYBE EVEN MONTHSWHERE IT JUST SEEMS
  • 00:04:03.866 --> 00:04:07.203
  • THAT JESUS'S YOKE HASBEEN UNBEARABLY HARD
  • 00:04:07.203 --> 00:04:10.740
  • AND HIS BURDEN CRUSHINGLY HEAVY.
  • 00:04:10.740 --> 00:04:14.911
  • SO IN THIS TEXT, IN THE GOSPELOF MATTHEW, JESUS IS SPEAKING
  • 00:04:14.911 --> 00:04:18.614
  • TO THE JEWS THAT ARE UNDERTHE CRUSHING PRESSURE
  • 00:04:18.614 --> 00:04:21.384
  • OF THE MOSAIC LAW AND THECORRUPT RELIGIOUS LEADERSHIP.
  • 00:04:21.384 --> 00:04:26.622
  • IT WAS TOO MUCH FOR THEM.
  • 00:04:26.622 --> 00:04:28.124
  • THEY WERE CRUMBLING UNDERALL OF THIS PRESSURE
  • 00:04:28.124 --> 00:04:30.793
  • AND HE WAS SAYING, ENTERINTO MY NEW COVENANT REST.
  • 00:04:30.793 --> 00:04:35.164
  • NOW I KNOW THAT YOU AND IWE'RE NOT FIRST CENTURY JEWS
  • 00:04:35.164 --> 00:04:38.568
  • LIVING UNDER THE WEIGHTOF THE MOSAIC LAW.
  • 00:04:38.568 --> 00:04:41.537
  • BUT THROUGH THIS TEXT, JESUSEXTENDS A SIMILAR INVITATION
  • 00:04:41.537 --> 00:04:45.508
  • TO YOU RIGHT THERE ON THEOTHER SIDE OF THE SCREEN
  • 00:04:45.508 --> 00:04:47.677
  • AND TO ME, AND IDON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU
  • 00:04:47.677 --> 00:04:50.313
  • BUT THIS IS AN INVITATIONTHAT I WANT TO TAKE HIM UP ON.
  • 00:04:50.313 --> 00:04:55.017
  • I NEED A RENEWED REVELATIONOF THE REST OF GOD.
  • 00:04:55.017 --> 00:04:59.789
  • JESUS SAYS, COME TO ME ALLWHO LABOR AND ARE HEAVY-LADEN.
  • 00:04:59.789 --> 00:05:04.026
  • NOW I LOVE THAT WORD.
  • 00:05:04.026 --> 00:05:05.361
  • COME, COME AS AN INVITATION.
  • 00:05:05.361 --> 00:05:07.497
  • NOW, HAVE YOU EVERGOTTEN AN INVITATION
  • 00:05:07.497 --> 00:05:10.500
  • THAT YOU JUST COULD NOT BELIEVE,
  • 00:05:10.500 --> 00:05:12.502
  • LIKE YOU WERE INVITEDTO SOME PARTY,
  • 00:05:12.502 --> 00:05:14.904
  • YOU'RE INVITED TO AN EVENT
  • 00:05:14.904 --> 00:05:16.873
  • YOU WERE NOT EXPECTINGTO BE INVITED
  • 00:05:16.873 --> 00:05:19.742
  • THEN ALL OF A SUDDENYOU GOT INVITED.
  • 00:05:19.742 --> 00:05:21.778
  • I SEE THAT WITH MY GIRLS.
  • 00:05:21.778 --> 00:05:23.246
  • THERE'S JUST SOMETHINGABOUT THAT WORD COME.
  • 00:05:23.246 --> 00:05:26.282
  • THERE IS JUST SOMETHINGABOUT GETTING AN INVITATION.
  • 00:05:26.282 --> 00:05:29.218
  • WELL, THIS IS WHAT THEGOD OF THE UNIVERSE
  • 00:05:29.218 --> 00:05:32.255
  • IS INVITING YOU ANDME TO COME TO HIM.
  • 00:05:32.255 --> 00:05:35.558
  • NOT JUST WHEN WE FEELSTRONG OR PERFECT
  • 00:05:35.558 --> 00:05:38.361
  • OR SUCCESSFUL OR ALLOUR DUCKS ARE IN A ROW
  • 00:05:38.361 --> 00:05:40.863
  • BECAUSE MOST OF US THAT'SWHEN WE WANT TO GO TO GOD
  • 00:05:40.863 --> 00:05:44.500
  • WHEN WE FEEL LIKE WE'VEPERFORMED, WE'RE GOOD ENOUGH.
  • 00:05:44.500 --> 00:05:47.770
  • WE'RE TALENTED ENOUGH.
  • 00:05:47.770 --> 00:05:48.971
  • WE HAVE DONE ENOUGH GOOD WORKS
  • 00:05:48.971 --> 00:05:51.641
  • THAT SURELY GOD WOULDWANT US IN HIS PRESENCE
  • 00:05:51.641 --> 00:05:54.243
  • BECAUSE MOST OF US TRY TOWORK FOR THE APPROVAL OF GOD.
  • 00:05:54.243 --> 00:05:58.080
  • AND WE THINK WECAN'T EVEN GO TO GOD
  • 00:05:58.080 --> 00:06:00.750
  • UNLESS WE'RE ON OUR A GAME,
  • 00:06:00.750 --> 00:06:02.552
  • UNLESS WE WEREPERFORMING SO WELL.
  • 00:06:02.552 --> 00:06:05.354
  • BUT THE INVITATION FROMTHIS TEXT SAYS, NO, NO, NO
  • 00:06:05.354 --> 00:06:08.758
  • YOU CAN COME WHEN YOU'REWEAR AND HEAVY-LADEN.

  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:06:29.345 --> 00:06:30.246
  • THIS STUFF COMES ON US.
  • 00:06:30.246 --> 00:06:32.682
  • AND SO OFTEN WE DEFER OUR OWNISSUES SO THAT WE CAN DEAL
  • 00:06:32.682 --> 00:06:37.587
  • WITH WHAT'S GOING ONIN SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE.
  • 00:06:37.587 --> 00:06:39.622
  • AND IT CRIPPLES US.
  • 00:06:39.622 --> 00:06:40.890

  • 00:16:15.831 --> 00:16:19.401
  • SEE SO MUCH OF WHATWE'RE DOING IS A STRIVING
  • 00:16:19.401 --> 00:16:23.105
  • FOR THE GRACE OF GOD,FOR THE LOVE OF GOD
  • 00:16:23.105 --> 00:16:25.240
  • AND FOR THE ACCEPTANCE OF GOD.
  • 00:16:25.240 --> 00:16:27.209
  • AND GOD'S SAYING, WOULDYOU JUST REST IN IT?
  • 00:16:27.209 --> 00:16:29.778
  • YOU'VE ALREADY GOT IT.
  • 00:16:29.778 --> 00:16:30.879
  • YOU CAN REST IN THAT.
  • 00:16:30.879 --> 00:16:32.448
  • AND IT IS AMAZING HOWTHAT WILL THEN FUEL YOU
  • 00:16:32.448 --> 00:16:37.019
  • TO KEEP DOING WHAT GODHAS CALLED YOU TO DO.
  • 00:16:37.019 --> 00:16:40.055
  • YOU SEE WHAT WE NEEDIS TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:16:40.055 --> 00:16:42.925
  • THAT WE HAVE THE APPROVAL OF GOD
  • 00:16:42.925 --> 00:16:45.260
  • SO THAT WE STOP TRYING TOSEEK THE APPROVAL OF MAN.
  • 00:16:45.260 --> 00:16:48.964
  • SO MUCH OF OUR WEARINESS.
  • 00:16:48.964 --> 00:16:50.799
  • SO MUCH OF THEBURDENS THAT WE FEEL
  • 00:16:50.799 --> 00:16:53.035
  • IS BECAUSE SOMEHOW WE'RETRYING TO PLEASE PEOPLE
  • 00:16:53.035 --> 00:16:55.337
  • AND WE'RE TRYINGTO GET FROM PEOPLE
  • 00:16:55.337 --> 00:16:57.239
  • WHAT WE CAN ONLYULTIMATELY GET FROM GOD.
  • 00:16:57.239 --> 00:17:00.175
  • SO THE KIND OF RESTTHAT JESUS GIVES US,
  • 00:17:00.175 --> 00:17:02.211
  • IT'S A KIND OF REST WHEREWE LABOR FROM ACCEPTANCE,
  • 00:17:02.211 --> 00:17:08.217
  • NOT FOR ACCEPTANCE.
  • 00:17:08.217 --> 00:17:10.219
  • IT'S A REST WHERE WE LABOR
  • 00:17:10.219 --> 00:17:12.121
  • FROM A PLACE OF KNOWINGWE ARE LOVED BY GOD,
  • 00:17:12.121 --> 00:17:15.357
  • NOT STRIVING TO GETTHAT LOVE FROM GOD.
  • 00:17:15.357 --> 00:17:18.994
  • IT'S THE KIND OFREST WHERE WE LABOR
  • 00:17:18.994 --> 00:17:20.729
  • FROM OUR IDENTITY ASSONS AND DAUGHTERS
  • 00:17:20.729 --> 00:17:24.032
  • OF THE KING OF KINGSAND THE LORD OF LORDS.
  • 00:17:24.032 --> 00:17:26.335
  • WE ARE NOT WORKING TOTRY TO GET THAT IDENTITY.
  • 00:17:26.335 --> 00:17:30.539
  • NOW THAT SOUNDS EASY.
  • 00:17:30.539 --> 00:17:31.440
  • DOESN'T IT?
  • 00:17:31.440 --> 00:17:32.474
  • BUT THE TRUTH IS
  • 00:17:32.474 --> 00:17:34.009
  • MOST OF US ARE STILL WANTINGSOME KIND OF VALIDATION.
  • 00:17:34.009 --> 00:17:38.413
  • WE THINK THAT MAN, IF IJUST GET THAT BLUE CHECK
  • 00:17:38.413 --> 00:17:41.583
  • ON MY SOCIAL MEDIA PROFILE,I'M GOING TO BE HAPPY.
  • 00:17:41.583 --> 00:17:45.454
  • AND WE SPEND OUR LIFE COMPARING
  • 00:17:45.454 --> 00:17:47.556
  • AND COMPETING CONSTANTLYWITH ONE ANOTHER
  • 00:17:47.556 --> 00:17:50.893
  • THAN WE THINK THATIF SOMETHING IS SEEN
  • 00:17:50.893 --> 00:17:53.662
  • OR IF SOMETHING IS KNOWN ORIF SOMETHING IS APPLAUDED
  • 00:17:53.662 --> 00:17:57.199
  • THEN THAT'S THE ONLYWAY IT MATTERS TO GOD.
  • 00:17:57.199 --> 00:18:00.169
  • AND WHAT WE'VE DONE
  • 00:18:00.169 --> 00:18:01.236
  • IS WE CONFUSE SIGNIFICANCEWITH PROMINENCE.
  • 00:18:01.236 --> 00:18:04.439
  • AND WHAT THAT HAS DONEIS IT HAS EXHAUSTED US.
  • 00:18:04.439 --> 00:18:08.510
  • THERE IS GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY
  • 00:18:08.510 --> 00:18:10.479
  • THAN TRYING TO CONSTANTLYCOMPARE AND COMPETE.
  • 00:18:10.479 --> 00:18:13.782
  • THERE'S GOT TO BE ABETTER WAY THAN CONSTANTLY
  • 00:18:13.782 --> 00:18:16.785
  • TRYING TO GET MOREFOLLOWERS AND MORE LIKES.
  • 00:18:16.785 --> 00:18:19.321
  • AND SEEING WHO'S GOINGTO LIKE ME AT SCHOOL
  • 00:18:19.321 --> 00:18:21.356
  • WHO'S GOING TO LIKE ME AT WORK.
  • 00:18:21.356 --> 00:18:22.925
  • HOW AM I GOING TO GET MYVALIDATION THROUGH PEOPLE?
  • 00:18:22.925 --> 00:18:25.360
  • IT IS KILLING US.
  • 00:18:25.360 --> 00:18:26.328
  • IT IS EXHAUSTING US.
  • 00:18:26.328 --> 00:18:27.596
  • WE ALL FEEL LIKEWE'RE JUST NOT ENOUGH.
  • 00:18:27.596 --> 00:18:29.631
  • WE'RE NOT THIN ENOUGH.
  • 00:18:29.631 --> 00:18:30.465
  • WE'RE NOT SMART ENOUGH.
  • 00:18:30.465 --> 00:18:31.300
  • WE'RE NOT TALENTED ENOUGH.
  • 00:18:31.300 --> 00:18:32.134
  • WE'RE NOT GIFTED ENOUGH.
  • 00:18:32.134 --> 00:18:32.968
  • WE'RE NOT RESOURCED ENOUGH.
  • 00:18:32.968 --> 00:18:34.002
  • WE'RE JUST NOT ENOUGH.
  • 00:18:34.002 --> 00:18:35.204
  • BUT I'M HERE TO REMIND YOUIN CHRIST, YOU ARE ENOUGH.
  • 00:18:35.204 --> 00:18:38.540
  • JESUS HAS CREATEDYOU IN HIS IMAGE.
  • 00:18:38.540 --> 00:18:41.610
  • HE HAS FILLED YOU WITHGOD GIVEN DESTINY.
  • 00:18:41.610 --> 00:18:43.745
  • HE HAS FILLED YOU WITHGOD GIVEN PURPOSE.
  • 00:18:43.745 --> 00:18:46.081
  • HE HAS GIVEN YOU GIFTS
  • 00:18:46.081 --> 00:18:47.416
  • AND TALENTS FOR THE PURPOSEOF SERVING YOUR GENERATION.
  • 00:18:47.416 --> 00:18:50.586
  • AND YOU ARE ENOUGH.
  • 00:18:50.586 --> 00:18:52.588
  • WE HAVE GOT TO GET OFFTHIS PERFORMANCE TREADMILL
  • 00:18:52.588 --> 00:18:56.825
  • BECAUSE IT'S KILLING US.
  • 00:18:56.825 --> 00:18:58.727
  • SOMEHOW AND I THINKOUR SOCIAL MEDIA WORLD
  • 00:18:58.727 --> 00:19:02.631
  • HAS GOT A LOT TO DO WITH THAT.
  • 00:19:02.631 --> 00:19:04.633
  • WE ARE SEEKING APPROVAL FROMPEOPLE WE DON'T EVEN KNOW,
  • 00:19:04.633 --> 00:19:08.604
  • WE ARE SEEKING VALIDATION FROMPEOPLE WE DON'T EVEN KNOW.
  • 00:19:08.604 --> 00:19:12.908
  • WE ARE NEGLECTING THEPEOPLE IN OUR DIRECT SPHERE
  • 00:19:12.908 --> 00:19:16.545
  • SO THAT WE CAN GETTHE APPROVAL OR ALIKE
  • 00:19:16.545 --> 00:19:18.981
  • FROM SOMEBODY WE DON'TEVEN KNOW ON SOCIAL MEDIA.
  • 00:19:18.981 --> 00:19:22.651
  • AND WE TURN THINGS INSIDE OUT.
  • 00:19:22.651 --> 00:19:25.487
  • AND CAN I TELL YOUIT'S EXHAUSTING US.
  • 00:19:25.487 --> 00:19:28.457
  • IT'S MAKING OUR SOULS SICK.
  • 00:19:28.457 --> 00:19:31.693
  • IT'S MAKING OUR SOULS WEARY.
  • 00:19:31.693 --> 00:19:35.330
  • YOU CANNOT GET FROM PEOPLEWHAT YOU CAN ONLY GET FROM GOD.
  • 00:19:35.330 --> 00:19:39.034
  • I SAY THIS, OFTENPEOPLE GO WELL, CHRIS,
  • 00:19:39.034 --> 00:19:41.370

  • WHAT ARE THE 11 INGREDIENTS?
  • 00:19:48.744 --> 00:19:50.746
  • THERE IS NOT ANY ONE SECRETBUT I KNOW THAT ONE THING
  • 00:19:50.746 --> 00:19:55.317
  • NICK AND I RIGHT FROM THETIME THAT WE WERE DATING
  • 00:19:55.317 --> 00:19:58.320
  • AND WHEN WE GOT ENGAGEDAND TOOK OUR WEDDING VOWS

  • IN MINISTRY AND IN LIFEAND RAISING OUR DAUGHTERS

  • IS THAT NEITHER OF USTRY TO GET FROM THE OTHER
  • 00:20:16.138 --> 00:20:20.942
  • WHAT WE CAN ONLY GET FROM GOD.
  • 00:20:20.942 --> 00:20:23.245
  • SEE, THAT'S TOO BIG ABURDEN FOR ME TO PUT ON NICK
  • 00:20:23.245 --> 00:20:26.381
  • FOR ME TO EXPECTNICK TO BE JESUS.
  • 00:20:26.381 --> 00:20:29.451
  • HE WILL DISAPPOINT ME.
  • 00:20:29.451 --> 00:20:31.119

  • I PROMISE YOU BEFORE I EVENGET OUT OF BED IN THE MORNING
  • 00:20:33.989 --> 00:20:36.758
  • I WOULD HAVE ALREADYDISAPPOINTED HIM.

  • SO MANY OF US, OURWEARINESS, OUR FATIGUE,
  • 00:20:39.695 --> 00:20:43.632
  • OUR SENSE OF DISAPPOINTMENT
  • 00:20:43.632 --> 00:20:45.334
  • AND DISCOURAGEMENTAND DISILLUSIONMENT
  • 00:20:45.334 --> 00:20:47.069
  • IS BECAUSE WE'RE TRYINGTO GET FROM PEOPLE
  • 00:20:47.069 --> 00:20:49.237
  • WHAT WE CAN ONLY GET FROM GOD.
  • 00:20:49.237 --> 00:20:50.739
  • SO JESUS SAYS,WOULD YOU COME TO ME
  • 00:20:50.739 --> 00:20:53.075

  • YOU'RE GOING TO GET THATENCOURAGEMENT FROM ME.
  • 00:21:02.184 --> 00:21:04.353
  • YOU'RE ONLY ULTIMATELYGOING TO GET YOUR SENSE

  • OF IDENTITY FROM JESUS.
  • 00:21:06.254 --> 00:21:08.123
  • YOU'RE ONLY ULTIMATELYGOING TO GET YOUR SENSE

  • OF PURPOSE FROM JESUS.
  • 00:21:09.925 --> 00:21:11.660
  • YOU'RE ONLY GOING TO ULTIMATELYGET THAT SENSE OF SECURITY,
  • 00:21:11.660 --> 00:21:15.330
  • OF STABILITY, OF COMFORTTHAT YOU'RE SEEKING,
  • 00:21:15.330 --> 00:21:18.734
  • NOT FROM ANOTHER PERSON,NOT FROM A SUBSTANCE,
  • 00:21:18.734 --> 00:21:21.803
  • NOT FROM ACCUMULATING, ACQUIRINGOR AMASSING MORE THINGS,
  • 00:21:21.803 --> 00:21:26.241
  • BUT ONLY FROM JESUS.
  • 00:21:26.241 --> 00:21:28.477
  • AND I THINK A MAJORREASON BY THE GRACE OF GOD
  • 00:21:28.477 --> 00:21:32.314
  • THAT OUR MARRIAGE CONTINUESTO FLOURISH TODAY.
  • 00:21:32.314 --> 00:21:35.484
  • AND IN FACT, IT'S PROBABLYSTRONGER THAN IT HAS EVER BEEN
  • 00:21:35.484 --> 00:21:38.887
  • IS BECAUSE I DON'TEXPECT NICK TO BE JESUS.
  • 00:21:38.887 --> 00:21:41.890
  • I EXPECT NICK TO BE NICK
  • 00:21:41.890 --> 00:21:43.692
  • AND NICK DOESN'TEXPECT ME TO BE JESUS.
  • 00:21:43.692 --> 00:21:46.128
  • HE EXPECTS JESUS TO BEJESUS AND CHRIS TO BE CHRIS.
  • 00:21:46.128 --> 00:21:50.899
  • AND THEN WHEN HE UNDERSTANDS
  • 00:21:50.899 --> 00:21:52.067
  • THAT CHRIS HAS ONLYEVER GOING TO BE CHRIS
  • 00:21:52.067 --> 00:21:54.736
  • THEN THAT HELPS HIM NOT LIVE
  • 00:21:54.736 --> 00:21:56.838
  • IN A CONSTANT STATEOF DISAPPOINTMENT
  • 00:21:56.838 --> 00:21:58.807
  • OR DISCOURAGEMENT ORDISILLUSIONMENT WITH ME.
  • 00:21:58.807 --> 00:22:01.643
  • IT HELPS ME TO KNOW THATMY HUSBAND IS MY HUSBAND,
  • 00:22:01.643 --> 00:22:04.212
  • BUT HE'S NOT MY GOD.
  • 00:22:04.212 --> 00:22:06.548
  • JESUS IS MY GOD.
  • 00:22:06.548 --> 00:22:08.216
