  • lovely wife Sarah, ministered the Word of God to you on the

  • broadcast. It was powerful teaching on living a legacy and
  • 00:00:37.050 --> 00:00:42.150
  • staying connected to the family of faith. Now they're back on
  • 00:00:42.160 --> 00:00:46.040

  • 00:00:53.290 --> 00:00:56.140
  • him. He's been in the ministry all of his life, his Mother and
  • 00:00:56.150 --> 00:01:00.050

  • and years, both he and Sarah are anointed ministers of the
  • 00:01:03.270 --> 00:01:08.270
  • Gospel. It blesses me to hear them teach and preach the Word.
  • 00:01:08.280 --> 00:01:13.280

  • I'm going to spend some more time together in the Word of God
  • 00:01:22.200 --> 00:01:25.240
  • and I hope you are ready. I hope your heart is open today to what
  • 00:01:25.250 --> 00:01:29.180
  • the Lord would say to you. We want to speak to not just you,
  • 00:01:29.190 --> 00:01:32.110
  • but to your family. We want to talk to you about what it means
  • 00:01:32.120 --> 00:01:35.210
  • to raise a family in and around the Word of God. And speaking of
  • 00:01:35.220 --> 00:01:39.260
  • family, I just want to say right here at the top of this
  • 00:01:39.270 --> 00:01:42.150
  • broadcast how thankful we are today from my grandparents,
  • 00:01:42.160 --> 00:01:45.120

  • Sarah and I this opportunity to minister to this congregation of

  • today. I called you a minister. You are equipped to be a
  • 00:03:02.130 --> 00:03:05.270
  • minister of the Gospel. Sarah, let's pray together today and
  • 00:03:05.280 --> 00:03:10.030
  • get right into the Word. Father, we love you. We worship and
  • 00:03:10.040 --> 00:03:13.050
  • adore you today. Thank you so much for opportunity to minister
  • 00:03:13.060 --> 00:03:16.270
  • your Word to your people by the help of your spirit under your
  • 00:03:16.280 --> 00:03:20.030
  • anointing. We look to you, we listen to you. Our hearts are
  • 00:03:20.040 --> 00:03:24.270
  • open to you and we declare that the good work you've begun in us
  • 00:03:24.280 --> 00:03:27.290
  • and and this viewing audience all over the world,
  • 00:03:28.000 --> 00:03:30.240
  • you are faithful to finish it because you sir,
  • 00:03:30.250 --> 00:03:33.190
  • are the author and the finisher of our faith. We give you all
  • 00:03:33.200 --> 00:03:37.040
  • the glory and the praise for the good things that you're doing in
  • 00:03:37.050 --> 00:03:40.040
  • our lives. Good things, great things and greater things still
  • 00:03:40.050 --> 00:03:43.030
  • to come. In Jesus name, we thank you. Amen. Amen. Well,
  • 00:03:43.040 --> 00:03:47.090
  • if you've got your Bible, I want you to go with us today to the
  • 00:03:47.100 --> 00:03:49.290
  • book of Galatians Chapter Six. We talked all last week on the
  • 00:03:50.000 --> 00:03:55.140
  • broadcast about living a legacy, not just leaving a legacy but
  • 00:03:55.150 --> 00:03:59.260
  • living a legacy because the life you live is the legacy that
  • 00:03:59.270 --> 00:04:04.100
  • you'll leave. And we've been talking about our families,
  • 00:04:04.110 --> 00:04:07.220
  • Sarah, even though she grew up in the state of Arkansas,
  • 00:04:07.230 --> 00:04:11.100
  • I grew up in the state of Texas. There was a lot of similarities
  • 00:04:11.110 --> 00:04:14.080
  • about our houses, a lot of differences too,
  • 00:04:14.090 --> 00:04:16.220
  • but the, the main things that were the same were the the love
  • 00:04:16.230 --> 00:04:20.270
  • for God, the love for the things of God,
  • 00:04:20.280 --> 00:04:23.280
  • the love for his church and his people. And we really spent a
  • 00:04:23.290 --> 00:04:28.010
  • lot of time last week talking about that and I felt like when
  • 00:04:28.020 --> 00:04:30.120
  • we started hitting on that specifically the church,
  • 00:04:30.130 --> 00:04:33.260
  • that there was such a grace and an anointing to minister to
  • 00:04:33.270 --> 00:04:37.030
  • people and encouraging you to find the family of faith that
  • 00:04:37.040 --> 00:04:41.130
  • you belong in. And like I said, even though there were some
  • 00:04:41.140 --> 00:04:46.040
  • differences about your growing up in mind,
  • 00:04:46.050 --> 00:04:48.190
  • that was one thing that was the same. We were plugged in to the
  • 00:04:48.200 --> 00:04:52.050
  • family of faith. Amen. And I want to continue on in that this
  • 00:04:52.060 --> 00:04:58.020
  • week on the broadcast, let's just begin here in Galatians
  • 00:04:58.030 --> 00:05:01.220
  • chapter six you know, verse six, we read it a lot on the BVOV,
  • 00:05:01.230 --> 00:05:06.060
  • especially when it's time for the offering on Fridays. But I
  • 00:05:06.070 --> 00:05:09.090
  • want to read it to you again right now. Just begin in verse
  • 00:05:09.100 --> 00:05:12.070
  • six and read several verses here. It says,
  • 00:05:12.080 --> 00:05:13.260
  • let him who has taught the Word, share in all good things with
  • 00:05:13.270 --> 00:05:17.030
  • him who teaches do not be deceived. God is not mocked for
  • 00:05:17.040 --> 00:05:19.180
  • whatever a man sows that he will also reap. For he who sows to
  • 00:05:19.190 --> 00:05:23.150
  • his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption,
  • 00:05:23.160 --> 00:05:26.110
  • but he who sows to the spirit will of the spirit reap
  • 00:05:26.120 --> 00:05:29.140
  • everlasting life and let us not grow weary while doing good for
  • 00:05:29.150 --> 00:05:33.100
  • in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. That's
  • 00:05:33.110 --> 00:05:39.060
  • basically just saying, don't give up. Don't draw back. Don't
  • 00:05:39.070 --> 00:05:43.140
  • give in. Don't give out. Don't quit. You're not a quitter.
  • 00:05:43.150 --> 00:05:48.100
  • You're not anointed to quit. You're not gifted to quit. You
  • 00:05:48.110 --> 00:05:50.290
  • are not a quitter and I don't care if you have quit every
  • 00:05:51.000 --> 00:05:54.110
  • single thing you've ever started. I'm telling you today,
  • 00:05:54.120 --> 00:05:56.250
  • you're not a quitter and whatever you set your hand to do
  • 00:05:56.260 --> 00:06:00.040
  • in God, if you'll trust the grace of God on you and in you,
  • 00:06:00.050 --> 00:06:03.110
  • it will prosper in Jesus' name. Amen. If we don't quit,
  • 00:06:03.120 --> 00:06:08.080
  • we don't grow weary while doing good. Wasn't there something the
  • 00:06:08.090 --> 00:06:12.000
  • Lord had said to you specifically about that a while
  • 00:06:12.010 --> 00:06:13.140
  • back, it seemed like it was a couple of years ago. Don't grow
  • 00:06:13.150 --> 00:06:15.240
  • weary. I think it was while we were believing God for something
  • 00:06:15.250 --> 00:06:19.290
  • big, like, don't give in on this thing. Don't quit on it. SARAH:
  • 00:06:20.000 --> 00:06:22.030
  • I mean, how many times does he say,
  • 00:06:22.040 --> 00:06:24.260
  • don't quit. Don't quit. Keep walking. JEREMY: Which just
  • 00:06:24.270 --> 00:06:26.270
  • means there's opportunity, right? There's opportunity
  • 00:06:26.280 --> 00:06:29.240
  • sometimes daily, sometimes multiple times a day to quit.
  • 00:06:29.250 --> 00:06:34.230
  • But the Salma said it best. He said,
  • 00:06:34.240 --> 00:06:37.110
  • I would have lost heart if I had not believed to see the goodness
  • 00:06:37.120 --> 00:06:42.030
  • of the Lord in the land of the living. See,
  • 00:06:42.040 --> 00:06:45.130
  • most people are waiting to see something and they're saying,
  • 00:06:45.140 --> 00:06:50.030
  • I'm giving up. If I don't see a change. I mean,
  • 00:06:50.040 --> 00:06:52.240
  • how many people right now, Sarah,
  • 00:06:52.250 --> 00:06:54.090
  • are right on the verge of divorce saying,
  • 00:06:54.100 --> 00:06:57.020
  • unless I see a change in you or unless I see a change in this
  • 00:06:57.030 --> 00:07:01.120
  • marriage unless I see a change in my spouse. I'm done. I quit.
  • 00:07:01.130 --> 00:07:05.070
  • I give up, but that's not supposed to be the way you and I
  • 00:07:05.080 --> 00:07:09.090
  • live. We don't wait to see the change to determine whether or
  • 00:07:09.100 --> 00:07:13.170
  • not we're going to stay in it. The Salma said what was
  • 00:07:13.180 --> 00:07:16.260
  • sustaining him was believing to see the goodness of God. So I'm
  • 00:07:16.270 --> 00:07:21.150
  • encouraging you right now. If there's something,
  • 00:07:21.160 --> 00:07:24.020
  • maybe it is your marriage, maybe it is something on the job or
  • 00:07:24.030 --> 00:07:27.190
  • your family, and you feel right on the verge of quitting. Stop
  • 00:07:27.200 --> 00:07:31.060
  • saying, unless I see a change, I quit. Say this. Instead. I
  • 00:07:31.070 --> 00:07:33.180
  • believe to see the goodness of the Lord. I'm believing,
  • 00:07:33.190 --> 00:07:39.030
  • to see the goodness of the Lord in our marriage. I'm believing
  • 00:07:39.040 --> 00:07:41.200
  • to see the goodness of the Lord in our family and in our
  • 00:07:41.210 --> 00:07:44.230
  • relationships and on the job and in the ministry,
  • 00:07:44.240 --> 00:07:47.260
  • believing to see the goodness of the Lord. That's something that
  • 00:07:47.270 --> 00:07:50.130
  • I wrote down a couple of years ago and been getting in the
  • 00:07:50.140 --> 00:07:55.060
  • habit of saying even over Sarah and I in our marriage every,
  • 00:07:55.070 --> 00:07:58.030
  • every single day, just declaring that she and I love God. We love
  • 00:07:58.040 --> 00:08:04.030
  • each other. We love our children. Our marriage is
  • 00:08:04.040 --> 00:08:07.010
  • thriving. It's flourishing. We got to get these Words in our
  • 00:08:07.020 --> 00:08:10.100
  • mouth, right? Yeah, I'm doing all the talking here. SARAH: No,
  • 00:08:10.110 --> 00:08:12.160
  • that that Word here that talks about being weary,
  • 00:08:12.170 --> 00:08:15.090
  • it's the same. Um, it, to me it's the same,
  • 00:08:15.100 --> 00:08:21.170
  • uh, conveys the same thing as that scripture in psalms that
  • 00:08:21.180 --> 00:08:25.160
  • you were just, um, saying about this is weariness and he said,
  • 00:08:25.170 --> 00:08:27.170
  • I would've fainted. It's those feelings of almost fainting.
  • 00:08:27.180 --> 00:08:31.070
  • That's you are right at the end. And some of you may feel like
  • 00:08:31.080 --> 00:08:35.110
  • that with your marriages, you may feel like your right at the
  • 00:08:35.120 --> 00:08:38.160
  • end, but that doesn't mean it has to be the end. And if you
  • 00:08:38.170 --> 00:08:42.100
  • just won't quit and you'll just keep walking,
  • 00:08:42.110 --> 00:08:46.100
  • keep believing, keep standing and keep praying over your
  • 00:08:46.110 --> 00:08:50.070
  • spouse. It doesn't have to be the end. And I've seen this over
  • 00:08:50.080 --> 00:08:54.020
  • and over in different people's lives in ministry and,
  • 00:08:54.030 --> 00:08:56.050
  • people that were called by God, I'm thinking of one couple right
  • 00:08:56.060 --> 00:09:02.090
  • now that has just gone through a really hard time this last year.
  • 00:09:02.100 --> 00:09:06.000
  • And they just, I told her, I said,
  • 00:09:06.010 --> 00:09:08.220
  • don't quit. Don't give up on it. God has a plan for this
  • 00:09:08.230 --> 00:09:12.030
  • marriage. He's called you. I see how you're anointed. You're
  • 00:09:12.040 --> 00:09:14.270
  • called together. Don't give up and you know,
  • 00:09:14.280 --> 00:09:17.060
  • actually Christian people were telling them to quit and that it
  • 00:09:17.070 --> 00:09:18.230
  • was impossible and impossible situation. I told her,
  • 00:09:18.240 --> 00:09:21.270
  • it's not impossible and this, this situation,
  • 00:09:21.280 --> 00:09:24.010
  • you guys are going to come through and you just,
  • 00:09:24.020 --> 00:09:26.020
  • you just keep building people up until they get through it. But
  • 00:09:26.030 --> 00:09:28.140
  • I'm telling you, they stuck with it. She kept praying for her
  • 00:09:28.150 --> 00:09:32.060
  • husband and they came through it. And just the other day,
  • 00:09:32.070 --> 00:09:35.040
  • this has been just a year or so, she called me and texted me. She
  • 00:09:35.050 --> 00:09:38.210
  • said, our marriage is the best it's ever been in our lives. And
  • 00:09:38.220 --> 00:09:41.230
  • you know what happened? She just didn't quit. She kept going. She
  • 00:09:41.240 --> 00:09:44.250
  • just kept praying, kept believing,
  • 00:09:44.260 --> 00:09:47.010
  • kept standing, and God was faithful in their marriage. And
  • 00:09:47.020 --> 00:09:50.130
  • that's oftentimes people just quit just right before they see
  • 00:09:50.140 --> 00:09:53.050
  • their promise right before they see their miracle. So I'm just
  • 00:09:53.060 --> 00:09:56.170
  • encouraging you today. Don't quit. And if even if you feel
  • 00:09:56.180 --> 00:09:58.280
  • weary, even if you feel faint, it doesn't have to be the end.
  • 00:09:58.290 --> 00:10:03.140
  • And you can keep pressing into God. You can keep,
  • 00:10:03.150 --> 00:10:06.120
  • you know, you don't even have to put pressure. I,
  • 00:10:06.130 --> 00:10:08.290
  • I, I believe this. You don't even have to put pressure on
  • 00:10:09.000 --> 00:10:11.240
  • your spouse to, um, to tell - you don't have to preach at
  • 00:10:11.250 --> 00:10:17.030
  • them. You don't have to tell them what to do. You don't even
  • 00:10:17.040 --> 00:10:18.230
  • have to try to make them change to be who you want them to be.
  • 00:10:18.240 --> 00:10:21.230
  • You can go before God and say, God,
  • 00:10:21.240 --> 00:10:23.240
  • I'm trusting you to work in their lives. I'm asking you to
  • 00:10:23.250 --> 00:10:26.200
  • speak to them and make it clear. I know Jeremy and I,
  • 00:10:26.210 --> 00:10:29.100
  • we've had moments, I remember this one particular time when we
  • 00:10:29.110 --> 00:10:31.150
  • were arguing in the bathroom about something. Oh yeah,
  • 00:10:31.160 --> 00:10:34.000
  • we were arguing when it happens once and a while,
  • 00:10:34.010 --> 00:10:36.120
  • and I remember that I just wanted to tell him what to do or
  • 00:10:36.130 --> 00:10:39.150
  • just to say, why don't you just do this? And the Lord just
  • 00:10:39.160 --> 00:10:42.230
  • checked me. The Holy Spirit just said,
  • 00:10:42.240 --> 00:10:44.270
  • no, just stop. Just go pray about that. And so I just
  • 00:10:44.280 --> 00:10:47.120
  • stopped and I said, Lord, I ask you to deal with Jeremy. I ask
  • 00:10:47.130 --> 00:10:50.160
  • you just to go and speak to him and show him... JEREMY: You know
  • 00:10:50.170 --> 00:10:54.090
  • I'm sitting right here? SARAH: I know. I'm just telling them. And
  • 00:10:54.100 --> 00:10:57.000
  • I said, I asked you just to speak to him and show him how
  • 00:10:57.010 --> 00:11:00.250
  • this bothers me, or this is it. Show him this in the Word. And
  • 00:11:00.260 --> 00:11:05.200
  • of course, you know, on the other side of that,
  • 00:11:05.210 --> 00:11:08.080
  • I also have to go before the Lord and say,
  • 00:11:08.090 --> 00:11:10.030
  • Lord, I repent. This is my bad. I'm,
  • 00:11:10.040 --> 00:11:11.270
  • I am taking responsibility for this. SARAH: But I prayed over
  • 00:11:11.280 --> 00:11:15.030
  • him and I kid you not like 30 seconds later he walks into the
  • 00:11:15.040 --> 00:11:18.190
  • bathroom and he's like, "Sarah, I'm sorry, that was wrong. I did
  • 00:11:18.200 --> 00:11:23.170
  • this wrong and this wrong and I shouldn't have treated you like
  • 00:11:23.180 --> 00:11:26.090
  • this, or I should've done this." And I,
  • 00:11:26.100 --> 00:11:27.250
  • he walked out. I, I looked back out of the room and I thought,
  • 00:11:27.260 --> 00:11:29.250
  • prayer works. It works. It really works. But you know,
  • 00:11:29.260 --> 00:11:34.000
  • instead of preaching at your spouse,
  • 00:11:34.010 --> 00:11:36.110
  • you can just go before the Lord and go in your prayer closet or
  • 00:11:36.120 --> 00:11:38.270
  • wherever you go to pray, have your scriptures for them. Pick
  • 00:11:38.280 --> 00:11:42.170
  • out your scriptures and believe God that they begin to act the
  • 00:11:42.180 --> 00:11:46.050
  • way you want them to act. They begin to just,
  • 00:11:46.060 --> 00:11:50.140
  • um, change into the person that you see that they're supposed to
  • 00:11:50.150 --> 00:11:55.140
  • be in the Word or what God's called them to be or to do. You
  • 00:11:55.150 --> 00:11:58.040
  • don't always have to make it between you and your spouse. It
  • 00:11:58.050 --> 00:12:02.020
  • can be between you and God. And God.... JEREMY: I want you to
  • 00:12:02.030 --> 00:12:04.180
  • notice here, the, the terminology he used,
  • 00:12:04.190 --> 00:12:09.020
  • he said, we'll, reap, if we don't lose heart,
  • 00:12:09.030 --> 00:12:10.290
  • and that's exactly what the Salma has said. One translation
  • 00:12:11.000 --> 00:12:15.160
  • says, I would have fainted. Another one says I would have
  • 00:12:15.170 --> 00:12:18.090
  • lost heart. And the truth is, you can lose a lot of things in
  • 00:12:18.100 --> 00:12:22.060
  • this life. A lot of natural things you can,
  • 00:12:22.070 --> 00:12:24.260
  • you can lose a lot of different things and still be in the
  • 00:12:24.270 --> 00:12:27.230
  • fight. You know what I mean by that? You can,
  • 00:12:27.240 --> 00:12:30.220
  • you can, you can lose some money and still be in the fight. You
  • 00:12:30.230 --> 00:12:35.110
  • know, you can, you can lose some natural material things and yet
  • 00:12:35.120 --> 00:12:38.160
  • still be in this fight of faith and not given up. The only thing
  • 00:12:38.170 --> 00:12:42.230
  • you can't lose is heart. Because once you've lost heart,
  • 00:12:42.240 --> 00:12:48.010
  • you're out. Yeah. If you've still got heart and that's why
  • 00:12:48.020 --> 00:12:52.020
  • you can ask any, any good coach, any sport,
  • 00:12:52.030 --> 00:12:55.090
  • any team, and he'd say, what do you want coach? A lot of talent
  • 00:12:55.100 --> 00:12:58.150
  • or a lot of heart. He say, give me heart every time somebody
  • 00:12:58.160 --> 00:13:00.230
  • who's not going to give up when it gets hard or when you get
  • 00:13:00.240 --> 00:13:04.140
  • behind or when you're down, somebody who's going to stay in
  • 00:13:04.150 --> 00:13:07.030
  • it and when you're praying, I don't know how we got on a
  • 00:13:07.040 --> 00:13:11.040
  • marriages today, but when you're praying over your spouse like
  • 00:13:11.050 --> 00:13:14.130
  • that, they're making a heart connection there. You're
  • 00:13:14.140 --> 00:13:16.190
  • getting, you're getting it out of the realm of what seems to be
  • 00:13:16.200 --> 00:13:21.000
  • naturally between the two of you and you're making a heart
  • 00:13:21.010 --> 00:13:24.010
  • connection. You're putting heart in this thing. This isn't at all
  • 00:13:24.020 --> 00:13:28.110
  • where I thought we were headed, but this is important because of
  • 00:13:28.120 --> 00:13:32.050
  • what he says in verse 10 and this is where I want us to get
  • 00:13:32.060 --> 00:13:35.200
  • to today. He says, "Therefore as we have opportunity,
  • 00:13:35.210 --> 00:13:39.060
  • let us do good to all, especially to those who are of
  • 00:13:39.070 --> 00:13:44.000
  • the household of faith as we have opportunity. Let us do good
  • 00:13:44.010 --> 00:13:50.190
  • to all." Now you know that as believers,
  • 00:13:50.200 --> 00:13:53.130
  • as Christian people, a big part of our assignment while we're
  • 00:13:53.140 --> 00:13:58.010
  • here on this earth is to do good to people,
  • 00:13:58.020 --> 00:14:00.100
  • is to do good to the world around us and to be a light,
  • 00:14:00.110 --> 00:14:04.240
  • if you will, to to be quick, to give and quick to forgive and,
  • 00:14:04.250 --> 00:14:08.190
  • and quick to be a blessing to other people. You know,
  • 00:14:08.200 --> 00:14:12.010
  • we ought to be the ones that the world around us can count on,
  • 00:14:12.020 --> 00:14:14.150
  • to be stable, to be consistent, to,
  • 00:14:14.160 --> 00:14:17.100
  • to, to be available to people when they need it. And I think
  • 00:14:17.110 --> 00:14:21.240
  • people in the church know we're supposed to be,
  • 00:14:21.250 --> 00:14:25.080
  • that. Even people outside of the church know that the church is
  • 00:14:25.090 --> 00:14:27.220
  • supposed to be that. But the scripture doesn't just talk
  • 00:14:27.230 --> 00:14:31.260
  • about doing good just to everybody. He does say that,
  • 00:14:31.270 --> 00:14:34.250
  • let's do good to all. But now I want you to notice this next
  • 00:14:34.260 --> 00:14:37.080
  • phrase is especially, or most importantly,
  • 00:14:37.090 --> 00:14:41.110
  • or you could even use the Word as a priority. Let's do good to
  • 00:14:41.120 --> 00:14:45.070
  • those who are of the household of faith. So our assignment or
  • 00:14:45.080 --> 00:14:54.110
  • obligation, if you will, is not just to,
  • 00:14:54.120 --> 00:14:56.110
  • not just to be good to all of humanity,
  • 00:14:56.120 --> 00:14:58.190
  • but to, especially to those who are of the household of faith
  • 00:14:58.200 --> 00:15:03.110
  • and what I want to do here is draw your attention to the fact
  • 00:15:03.120 --> 00:15:05.210
  • that there are two different households. Yeah. There are two
  • 00:15:05.220 --> 00:15:09.080
  • different families in this world and it has really bothered me
  • 00:15:09.090 --> 00:15:14.080
  • more lately, I think, than ever before. When I hear people use
  • 00:15:14.090 --> 00:15:19.250
  • the phrase or the expression, we're all just children of God.
  • 00:15:19.260 --> 00:15:25.010
  • We're all just children of God, the Creator,
  • 00:15:25.020 --> 00:15:29.290
  • and something's bothered me about that. On one level it
  • 00:15:30.000 --> 00:15:34.030
  • sounds good, you know, to say we're all just children of God,
  • 00:15:34.040 --> 00:15:37.270
  • but the truth is you're not a child of God until He's your
  • 00:15:37.280 --> 00:15:40.140
  • father. That's what makes Him, that's what makes you His child.
  • 00:15:40.150 --> 00:15:46.010
  • He's your father and to for Him to be your father,
  • 00:15:46.020 --> 00:15:50.100
  • Jesus has to be your savior, your Lord,
  • 00:15:50.110 --> 00:15:52.170
  • and your brother. Yeah. There are two different households in
  • 00:15:52.180 --> 00:15:55.270
  • this earth and God is not everybody's father. He is a
  • 00:15:55.280 --> 00:16:01.070
  • father to those that call him father to those that call on him
  • 00:16:01.080 --> 00:16:05.090
  • in faith. And we are of the household of faith. Read that
  • 00:16:05.100 --> 00:16:10.110
  • quote again if you've got it handy from E.W. Kenyan and what
  • 00:16:10.120 --> 00:16:12.270
  • he said about Christianity. SARAH: "Christianity is not a
  • 00:16:12.280 --> 00:16:16.140
  • religion. It is a family, a father and his children."
  • 00:16:16.150 --> 00:16:21.080
  • JEREMY: Yeah, that's what we are. We're not a religion. And
  • 00:16:21.090 --> 00:16:24.220
  • I've heard my grandfather say this for decades. He said
  • 00:16:24.230 --> 00:16:27.270
  • Christianity is not a religion. A religion has been made out of
  • 00:16:27.280 --> 00:16:31.150
  • it, but it's not a religion. It is a father and his family. And
  • 00:16:31.160 --> 00:16:36.230
  • that's what this Word household means. When you look it up in
  • 00:16:36.240 --> 00:16:39.270
  • the Greek, it literally translates to family. We are a
  • 00:16:39.280 --> 00:16:43.110
  • family of faith. Now you could read that verse and many people
  • 00:16:43.120 --> 00:16:46.210
  • do and apply at one of a couple of ways. You can take that
  • 00:16:46.220 --> 00:16:49.160
  • household of faith to be a reference to the global body of
  • 00:16:49.170 --> 00:16:52.280
  • Christ. Those who, those who would acknowledge that there is
  • 00:16:52.290 --> 00:16:58.210
  • one true God, that Jesus is his son. He lived and died,
  • 00:16:58.220 --> 00:17:02.140
  • rose again. And, and I put faith in that. And uh,
  • 00:17:02.150 --> 00:17:06.070
  • I'm a part of God's family and sure,
  • 00:17:06.080 --> 00:17:08.130
  • that is absolutely true, but I hear this in be a slightly
  • 00:17:08.140 --> 00:17:11.110
  • different way. People who aren't just born again by faith but who
  • 00:17:11.120 --> 00:17:18.090
  • choose to live by that same faith that they're born again
  • 00:17:18.100 --> 00:17:23.070
  • by. That to me is a different different thing altogether.
  • 00:17:23.080 --> 00:17:26.100
  • Yeah. Because there are a lot of people who've been born again
  • 00:17:26.110 --> 00:17:28.290
  • and they thank God have had that salvation experience,
  • 00:17:29.000 --> 00:17:33.150
  • if you will. But it's another thing entirely to take that same
  • 00:17:33.160 --> 00:17:36.140
  • principle of faith and that same miraculous power that you are
  • 00:17:36.150 --> 00:17:42.140
  • born again by and then to apply that to your life every single
  • 00:17:42.150 --> 00:17:46.170
  • day. That's different, right? I mean,
  • 00:17:46.180 --> 00:17:50.180
  • am I right about that? That's a different way of living and
  • 00:17:50.190 --> 00:17:52.240
  • that's what I want us to spend our time talking about all this
  • 00:17:52.250 --> 00:17:55.230
  • week on this, these broadcasts, talking about what it means to
  • 00:17:55.240 --> 00:17:59.260
  • be in the household of faith in the family of faith because
  • 00:17:59.270 --> 00:18:06.130
  • there is a difference. Yeah. And I think sometimes people don't
  • 00:18:06.140 --> 00:18:10.260
  • want to feel different, don't like feeling different. And that
  • 00:18:10.270 --> 00:18:16.260
  • goes all the way to back to being a kid and experiencing
  • 00:18:16.270 --> 00:18:19.010
  • that. They called it peer pressure,
  • 00:18:19.020 --> 00:18:21.200
  • that pressure to blend in, that pressure to look like everybody
  • 00:18:21.210 --> 00:18:25.010
  • else sound like everybody else talk like everybody else live
  • 00:18:25.020 --> 00:18:28.170
  • like everybody else and whatever the crowd was doing,
  • 00:18:28.180 --> 00:18:31.110
  • you're doing that. But you need to understand and you need to be
  • 00:18:31.120 --> 00:18:36.140
  • okay with this fact right here and there. That is that there is
  • 00:18:36.150 --> 00:18:39.270
  • supposed to be a difference. There's supposed to be a
  • 00:18:39.280 --> 00:18:43.210
  • difference between you and everybody else on this planet.
  • 00:18:43.220 --> 00:18:46.250
  • There's supposed to be a difference in the way you live,
  • 00:18:46.260 --> 00:18:49.140
  • the way you talk, the way you walk. And Paul wrote about it
  • 00:18:49.150 --> 00:18:51.250
  • and I want it was that I think first Thessalonians. Uh,
  • 00:18:51.260 --> 00:18:57.050
  • was it chapter... Yeah. First Thessalonians chapter five. He
  • 00:18:57.060 --> 00:19:03.230
  • said in verse five, or, verse four,
  • 00:19:03.240 --> 00:19:06.140
  • "You brethren." Okay, so there's family again,
  • 00:19:06.150 --> 00:19:08.270
  • right? Brothers. "You're not in darkness so that this day should
  • 00:19:08.280 --> 00:19:12.280
  • overtake you as a thief. You're sons of the light,
  • 00:19:12.290 --> 00:19:14.240
  • sons of day. We are not of the night nor of darkness,
  • 00:19:14.250 --> 00:19:18.190
  • he's saying the difference between us is it's supposed to
  • 00:19:18.200 --> 00:19:21.180
  • be night and day, dark and light. People use that
  • 00:19:21.190 --> 00:19:26.190
  • expression to describe things that are different. So that's a
  • 00:19:26.200 --> 00:19:30.080
  • night and day difference. Well that's the kind of difference
  • 00:19:30.090 --> 00:19:32.290
  • there supposed to be between this family and the other family
  • 00:19:33.000 --> 00:19:36.070
  • that's out in the world. The difference between the household
  • 00:19:36.080 --> 00:19:40.110
  • of faith and the household built on fear. There is supposed to be
  • 00:19:40.120 --> 00:19:45.140
  • a night and day difference. Nobody walks outside at 12
  • 00:19:45.150 --> 00:19:50.120
  • o'clock, noon looks up in the sky at that big ball of fire
  • 00:19:50.130 --> 00:19:53.000
  • hanging out up there and saying, I wonder if it's day or night
  • 00:19:53.010 --> 00:19:56.080
  • out here. You don't have to wonder. Look,
  • 00:19:56.090 --> 00:19:58.240
  • there's proof. The light is the proof and that's supposed to be
  • 00:19:58.250 --> 00:20:03.220
  • the thing going on in us. So that's what Sarah and I want to
  • 00:20:03.230 --> 00:20:07.140
  • deal with on these broadcasts all this week,
  • 00:20:07.150 --> 00:20:09.120
  • this night and day difference. What distinguishes us in the
  • 00:20:09.130 --> 00:20:12.110
  • house of faith as opposed to anybody outside this house. And
  • 00:20:12.120 --> 00:20:17.110
  • I, and I know you have a lot to say about it,
  • 00:20:17.120 --> 00:20:20.160
  • I feel like I'm the one doing all the preaching here. SARAH:
  • 00:20:20.170 --> 00:20:22.100
  • I'm enjoying it. JEREMY: Are you good? Can I receive an offering
  • 00:20:22.110 --> 00:20:23.290
  • at the end of this? SARAH: I won't give you all my money. I
  • 00:20:24.000 --> 00:20:27.100
  • also don't have anything in my pockets. JEREMY: Maybe later.
  • 00:20:27.110 --> 00:20:29.260
  • But I'm telling you though, the Lord has drawn a line in our own
  • 00:20:29.270 --> 00:20:34.260
  • hearts and helped us more, especially over the last several
  • 00:20:34.270 --> 00:20:39.110
  • weeks, months, uh, identify what it means to not just be in this
  • 00:20:39.120 --> 00:20:44.110
  • house, this house of faith, but to raise a family in this house.
  • 00:20:44.120 --> 00:20:48.230
  • And that, that phrase came to us. It was sometime last year.
  • 00:20:48.240 --> 00:20:55.080
  • We were doing broadcasts of our own for our ministry,
  • 00:20:55.090 --> 00:20:57.150
  • raising a family in the house of faith. But when you and I went
  • 00:20:57.160 --> 00:20:59.250
  • away up to Colorado into the mountains to pray for a few
  • 00:20:59.260 --> 00:21:03.290
  • days, this was what, back in November of 2018 that phrase is
  • 00:21:04.000 --> 00:21:07.250
  • what kept coming to us over and over and over. And it was while
  • 00:21:07.260 --> 00:21:11.290
  • we were praying about this next step of ministry that we're
  • 00:21:12.000 --> 00:21:15.210
  • taking this year in the launch of our own church. Legacy church
  • 00:21:15.220 --> 00:21:20.130
  • is coming later this year and we'll be launching in Colorado
  • 00:21:20.140 --> 00:21:23.070
  • just outside Colorado Springs. And the whole heartbeat of the
  • 00:21:23.080 --> 00:21:27.170
  • church is, is this idea of legacy. What do you,
  • 00:21:27.180 --> 00:21:31.210
  • what have you been given from the generations that have gone
  • 00:21:31.220 --> 00:21:35.200
  • before you and what will you give to the generations that are
  • 00:21:35.210 --> 00:21:38.140
  • coming and for us, what we've been given as the spirit of
  • 00:21:38.150 --> 00:21:42.280
  • faith. And that's what we're determined to pass to the
  • 00:21:42.290 --> 00:21:45.160
  • generation that's coming after us and to help other families
  • 00:21:45.170 --> 00:21:49.030
  • that would come be a part of this local church with a global
  • 00:21:49.040 --> 00:21:53.080
  • call to help them learn what it literally means to raise your
  • 00:21:53.090 --> 00:21:57.290
  • family in this kind of environment. When the Word of
  • 00:21:58.000 --> 00:22:01.020
  • God is first place. So we're going to talk about all of these
  • 00:22:01.030 --> 00:22:04.090
  • things and more this week. I want you to get ready for it
  • 00:22:04.100 --> 00:22:07.010
  • because I believe that what we're going to deal with can
  • 00:22:07.020 --> 00:22:09.160
  • have a huge impact on you, on your family,

  • on this generation and on the generations to come. We are of
