  • is Judas refused to change.When I think about Judas
  • 00:01:15.321 --> 00:01:17.423
  • When I think about Judasand how that he was there --
  • 00:01:17.423 --> 00:01:18.558
  • and how that he was there --he saw the eyes
  • 00:01:18.558 --> 00:01:20.426

  • He saw them go off shoutingand leaping.
  • 00:01:26.599 --> 00:01:28.234
  • and leaping.The lame running the aisles
  • 00:01:28.234 --> 00:01:29.669
  • The lame running the aislesin the synagogue after

  • 00:01:33.239 --> 00:01:34.941
  • He was there.He was there when Lazarus
  • 00:01:34.941 --> 00:01:36.776
  • He was there when Lazaruswas raised from the dead
  • 00:01:36.776 --> 00:01:39.145
  • was raised from the deadand the stone was rolled away.
  • 00:01:39.145 --> 00:01:41.147
  • and the stone was rolled away.He was there.
  • 00:01:41.147 --> 00:01:42.849
  • He was there.The Bible said that --
  • 00:01:42.849 --> 00:01:44.817
  • The Bible said that --the scripture says that when
  • 00:01:44.817 --> 00:01:47.387
  • the scripture says that whenJesus chose the disciples,
  • 00:01:47.387 --> 00:01:50.390
  • Jesus chose the disciples,He said "I choose you all,
  • 00:01:50.390 --> 00:01:52.725
  • He said "I choose you all,and one of you is a devil."
  • 00:01:52.725 --> 00:01:53.826
  • and one of you is a devil."That was on the day that
  • 00:01:53.826 --> 00:01:56.329
  • That was on the day thatJesus -- these words were spoken
  • 00:01:56.329 --> 00:01:57.564
  • Jesus -- these words were spokenon the day after He
  • 00:01:57.564 --> 00:01:59.699
  • on the day after Hehad made all of His selection
  • 00:01:59.699 --> 00:02:01.134
  • had made all of His selectionof 12 disciples.
  • 00:02:01.134 --> 00:02:03.403
  • of 12 disciples.And Jesus let 'em know,
  • 00:02:03.403 --> 00:02:05.538
  • And Jesus let 'em know,one of you is a devil.
  • 00:02:05.538 --> 00:02:09.876
  • one of you is a devil.The sad story of Judas is this.
  • 00:02:09.876 --> 00:02:12.378
  • The sad story of Judas is this.He started out a devil,
  • 00:02:12.378 --> 00:02:14.147
  • He started out a devil,he lived with Jesus for three
  • 00:02:14.147 --> 00:02:17.750
  • he lived with Jesus for threeyears, and he ended up a devil.
  • 00:02:17.750 --> 00:02:20.687
  • years, and he ended up a devil.He did not ever change.
  • 00:02:20.687 --> 00:02:23.156
  • He did not ever change.He refused to change.
  • 00:02:23.156 --> 00:02:24.824
  • He refused to change.The challenge of Judas' life
  • 00:02:24.824 --> 00:02:27.260
  • The challenge of Judas' lifeis that he started out
  • 00:02:27.260 --> 00:02:29.562
  • is that he started outthe same way he ended.
  • 00:02:29.562 --> 00:02:30.863
  • the same way he ended.It's not enough just to be
  • 00:02:30.863 --> 00:02:32.865
  • It's not enough just to bewhere Jesus is.
  • 00:02:32.865 --> 00:02:33.800
  • where Jesus is.It's not enough just to
  • 00:02:33.800 --> 00:02:36.436
  • It's not enough just tohear the word of Jesus
  • 00:02:36.436 --> 00:02:37.837
  • hear the word of Jesustaught to you.
  • 00:02:37.837 --> 00:02:39.005
  • taught to you.It's not enough to
  • 00:02:39.005 --> 00:02:42.775
  • It's not enough toassociate with other believers.
  • 00:02:42.775 --> 00:02:44.210
  • associate with other believers.The greatest challenge
  • 00:02:44.210 --> 00:02:48.181
  • The greatest challengeis to let God change your life.
  • 00:02:48.181 --> 00:02:50.149
  • is to let God change your life.Christianity is about
  • 00:02:50.149 --> 00:02:51.584
  • Christianity is abouta better you.
  • 00:02:51.584 --> 00:02:53.086
  • a better you.A freer you.
  • 00:02:53.086 --> 00:02:55.788
  • A freer you.A more like Jesus you.
  • 00:02:55.788 --> 00:02:56.789
  • A more like Jesus you.And I don't ever wanna get
  • 00:02:56.789 --> 00:02:58.791
  • And I don't ever wanna getso churchy that I can hang
  • 00:02:58.791 --> 00:03:00.526
  • so churchy that I can hangaround Jesus,
  • 00:03:00.526 --> 00:03:02.362
  • around Jesus,but He never changes me,
  • 00:03:02.362 --> 00:03:04.330
  • but He never changes me,and changes my attitude,
  • 00:03:04.330 --> 00:03:06.299
  • and changes my attitude,and changes my morality,
  • 00:03:06.299 --> 00:03:08.401
  • and changes my morality,and changes my spirit
  • 00:03:08.401 --> 00:03:11.137
  • and changes my spiritto be more like His spirit.
  • 00:03:11.137 --> 00:03:13.806
  • to be more like His spirit.Judas rejected change.
  • 00:03:13.806 --> 00:03:17.577
  • Judas rejected change.The second, I think,
  • 00:03:17.577 --> 00:03:18.911
  • The second, I think,powerful lesson
  • 00:03:18.911 --> 00:03:20.480
  • powerful lessonand priceless lesson
  • 00:03:20.480 --> 00:03:24.250
  • and priceless lessonfrom the life of Judas is this.
  • 00:03:24.250 --> 00:03:25.885
  • from the life of Judas is this.Judas wanted to give Jesus
  • 00:03:25.885 --> 00:03:30.456
  • Judas wanted to give Jesussomething, but not everything.
  • 00:03:30.456 --> 00:03:32.558
  • something, but not everything.You see, when he saw that woman,
  • 00:03:32.558 --> 00:03:34.360
  • You see, when he saw that woman,Mary, who broke open
  • 00:03:34.360 --> 00:03:36.162
  • Mary, who broke openthe alabaster box
  • 00:03:36.162 --> 00:03:38.531
  • the alabaster boxthat cost one year's wages,
  • 00:03:38.531 --> 00:03:39.766
  • that cost one year's wages,and poured it out
  • 00:03:39.766 --> 00:03:41.301
  • and poured it outon the feet of Jesus,
  • 00:03:41.301 --> 00:03:42.635
  • on the feet of Jesus,and she began to worship
  • 00:03:42.635 --> 00:03:43.503
  • and she began to worshipwith tears,
  • 00:03:43.503 --> 00:03:47.874
  • with tears,and dry His feet with her hair,
  • 00:03:47.874 --> 00:03:49.809
  • and dry His feet with her hair,it was such extravagant worship
  • 00:03:49.809 --> 00:03:50.977
  • it was such extravagant worshipthat Judas had a problem
  • 00:03:50.977 --> 00:03:51.944
  • that Judas had a problemwith it,
  • 00:03:51.944 --> 00:03:53.046
  • with it,and spoke up and said,
  • 00:03:53.046 --> 00:03:56.015
  • and spoke up and said,for what purpose is this waste?
  • 00:03:56.015 --> 00:03:58.518
  • for what purpose is this waste?He was upset not that the woman
  • 00:03:58.518 --> 00:03:59.886
  • He was upset not that the womangave something.
  • 00:03:59.886 --> 00:04:01.220
  • gave something.He was OK with the woman
  • 00:04:01.220 --> 00:04:02.822
  • He was OK with the womangiving something.
  • 00:04:02.822 --> 00:04:04.190
  • giving something.He just didn't think she should
  • 00:04:04.190 --> 00:04:06.893
  • He just didn't think she shouldhave given everything.
  • 00:04:06.893 --> 00:04:07.827
  • have given everything.And one of the priceless
  • 00:04:07.827 --> 00:04:09.329
  • And one of the pricelesslessons, if you don't wanna
  • 00:04:09.329 --> 00:04:12.899
  • lessons, if you don't wannaend up like Judas, is you --
  • 00:04:12.899 --> 00:04:14.267
  • end up like Judas, is you --usually when people
  • 00:04:14.267 --> 00:04:16.502
  • usually when peoplehave the attitude that they're,
  • 00:04:16.502 --> 00:04:17.403
  • have the attitude that they're,you know --
  • 00:04:17.403 --> 00:04:18.838
  • you know --I'm just gonna give Jesus
  • 00:04:18.838 --> 00:04:21.974
  • I'm just gonna give Jesussomething, but not everything,
  • 00:04:21.974 --> 00:04:24.677
  • something, but not everything,they end up giving
  • 00:04:24.677 --> 00:04:27.680
  • they end up givingand losing it all.
  • 00:04:27.680 --> 00:04:28.548
  • and losing it all.And that's what happened
  • 00:04:28.548 --> 00:04:29.949
  • And that's what happenedto Judas.
  • 00:04:29.949 --> 00:04:32.051
  • to Judas.Judas reached a point
  • 00:04:32.051 --> 00:04:33.920
  • Judas reached a pointwhere he lost it all.
  • 00:04:33.920 --> 00:04:35.855
  • where he lost it all.He actually reached a place
  • 00:04:35.855 --> 00:04:36.923
  • He actually reached a placewhere he said,
  • 00:04:36.923 --> 00:04:39.325
  • where he said,I'm OK with giving God
  • 00:04:39.325 --> 00:04:40.893
  • I'm OK with giving Godsomething, but I'm not
  • 00:04:40.893 --> 00:04:41.794

  • going to give Himcompletely everything.
  • 00:04:44.097 --> 00:04:44.864
  • completely everything.In other words,
  • 00:04:44.864 --> 00:04:46.833
  • In other words,it's partial commitment.
  • 00:04:46.833 --> 00:04:49.068
  • it's partial commitment.He refused to change.
  • 00:04:49.068 --> 00:04:50.970
  • He refused to change.Secondly, he was willing
  • 00:04:50.970 --> 00:04:52.472
  • Secondly, he was willingto give Jesus something,
  • 00:04:52.472 --> 00:04:54.774

  • 00:07:24.023 --> 00:07:26.292
  • at the Last Supper,the Bible said that Jesus turned
  • 00:07:26.292 --> 00:07:27.193
