  • that Judas teaches usis Judas refused to change.
  • 00:01:14.287 --> 00:01:15.622
  • is Judas refused to change.When I think about Judas
  • 00:01:15.622 --> 00:01:17.724
  • When I think about Judasand how that he was there --
  • 00:01:17.724 --> 00:01:18.858
  • and how that he was there --he saw the eyes
  • 00:01:18.858 --> 00:01:20.727
  • he saw the eyesof the blind opened.
  • 00:01:20.727 --> 00:01:23.663
  • of the blind opened.He saw the lepers cleansed.

  • He saw the lepers cleansed.He saw them go off shouting
  • 00:01:25.732 --> 00:01:26.900
  • He saw them go off shoutingand leaping.
  • 00:01:26.900 --> 00:01:28.535
  • and leaping.The lame running the aisles
  • 00:01:28.535 --> 00:01:29.969
  • The lame running the aislesin the synagogue after

  • and walked.He was there.
  • 00:01:33.540 --> 00:01:35.241
  • He was there.He was there when Lazarus
  • 00:01:35.241 --> 00:01:37.076
  • He was there when Lazaruswas raised from the dead
  • 00:01:37.076 --> 00:01:39.445
  • was raised from the deadand the stone was rolled away.
  • 00:01:39.445 --> 00:01:41.347
  • and the stone was rolled away.He was there.
  • 00:01:41.347 --> 00:01:43.049
  • He was there.The Bible said that --
  • 00:01:43.049 --> 00:01:45.018
  • The Bible said that --the scripture says that when
  • 00:01:45.018 --> 00:01:47.587
  • the scripture says that whenJesus chose the disciples,
  • 00:01:47.587 --> 00:01:50.590
  • Jesus chose the disciples,He said "I choose you all,
  • 00:01:50.590 --> 00:01:52.926
  • He said "I choose you all,and one of you is a devil."
  • 00:01:52.926 --> 00:01:54.027
  • and one of you is a devil."That was on the day that
  • 00:01:54.027 --> 00:01:56.529
  • That was on the day thatJesus -- these words were spoken
  • 00:01:56.529 --> 00:01:57.764
  • Jesus -- these words were spokenon the day after He
  • 00:01:57.764 --> 00:01:59.899
  • on the day after Hehad made all of His selection
  • 00:01:59.899 --> 00:02:01.334
  • had made all of His selectionof 12 disciples.
  • 00:02:01.334 --> 00:02:03.603
  • of 12 disciples.And Jesus let 'em know,
  • 00:02:03.603 --> 00:02:05.738
  • And Jesus let 'em know,one of you is a devil.
  • 00:02:05.738 --> 00:02:10.076
  • one of you is a devil.The sad story of Judas is this.
  • 00:02:10.076 --> 00:02:12.579
  • The sad story of Judas is this.He started out a devil,
  • 00:02:12.579 --> 00:02:14.347
  • He started out a devil,he lived with Jesus for three
  • 00:02:14.347 --> 00:02:17.951
  • he lived with Jesus for threeyears, and he ended up a devil.
  • 00:02:17.951 --> 00:02:20.887
  • years, and he ended up a devil.He did not ever change.
  • 00:02:20.887 --> 00:02:23.356
  • He did not ever change.He refused to change.
  • 00:02:23.356 --> 00:02:25.024
  • He refused to change.The challenge of Judas' life
  • 00:02:25.024 --> 00:02:27.460
  • The challenge of Judas' lifeis that he started out
  • 00:02:27.460 --> 00:02:29.829
  • is that he started outthe same way he ended.
  • 00:02:29.829 --> 00:02:31.130
  • the same way he ended.It's not enough just to be
  • 00:02:31.130 --> 00:02:33.132
  • It's not enough just to bewhere Jesus is.
  • 00:02:33.132 --> 00:02:34.067
  • where Jesus is.It's not enough just to
  • 00:02:34.067 --> 00:02:36.703
  • It's not enough just tohear the word of Jesus
  • 00:02:36.703 --> 00:02:38.104
  • hear the word of Jesustaught to you.
  • 00:02:38.104 --> 00:02:39.272
  • taught to you.It's not enough to
  • 00:02:39.272 --> 00:02:43.042
  • It's not enough toassociate with other believers.
  • 00:02:43.042 --> 00:02:44.477
  • associate with other believers.The greatest challenge
  • 00:02:44.477 --> 00:02:48.448
  • The greatest challengeis to let God change your life.
  • 00:02:48.448 --> 00:02:50.416
  • is to let God change your life.Christianity is about
  • 00:02:50.416 --> 00:02:51.851
  • Christianity is abouta better you.
  • 00:02:51.851 --> 00:02:53.353
  • a better you.A freer you.
  • 00:02:53.353 --> 00:02:56.055
  • A freer you.A more like Jesus you.
  • 00:02:56.055 --> 00:02:57.056
  • A more like Jesus you.And I don't ever wanna get
  • 00:02:57.056 --> 00:02:59.058
  • And I don't ever wanna getso churchy that I can hang
  • 00:02:59.058 --> 00:03:00.793
  • so churchy that I can hangaround Jesus,
  • 00:03:00.793 --> 00:03:02.629
  • around Jesus,but He never changes me,
  • 00:03:02.629 --> 00:03:04.597
  • but He never changes me,and changes my attitude,
  • 00:03:04.597 --> 00:03:06.566
  • and changes my attitude,and changes my morality,
  • 00:03:06.566 --> 00:03:08.668
  • and changes my morality,and changes my spirit
  • 00:03:08.668 --> 00:03:11.404
  • and changes my spiritto be more like His spirit.
  • 00:03:11.404 --> 00:03:14.073
  • to be more like His spirit.Judas rejected change.
  • 00:03:14.073 --> 00:03:17.844
  • Judas rejected change.The second, I think,
  • 00:03:17.844 --> 00:03:19.178
  • The second, I think,powerful lesson
  • 00:03:19.178 --> 00:03:20.747
  • powerful lessonand priceless lesson
  • 00:03:20.747 --> 00:03:24.517
  • and priceless lessonfrom the life of Judas is this.
  • 00:03:24.517 --> 00:03:26.152
  • from the life of Judas is this.Judas wanted to give Jesus
  • 00:03:26.152 --> 00:03:30.723
  • Judas wanted to give Jesussomething, but not everything.
  • 00:03:30.723 --> 00:03:32.825
  • something, but not everything.You see, when he saw that woman,
  • 00:03:32.825 --> 00:03:34.627
  • You see, when he saw that woman,Mary, who broke open
  • 00:03:34.627 --> 00:03:36.429
  • Mary, who broke openthe alabaster box
  • 00:03:36.429 --> 00:03:38.798
  • the alabaster boxthat cost one year's wages,
  • 00:03:38.798 --> 00:03:40.033
  • that cost one year's wages,and poured it out
  • 00:03:40.033 --> 00:03:41.567
  • and poured it outon the feet of Jesus,
  • 00:03:41.567 --> 00:03:42.902
  • on the feet of Jesus,and she began to worship
  • 00:03:42.902 --> 00:03:43.770
  • and she began to worshipwith tears,
  • 00:03:43.770 --> 00:03:48.141
  • with tears,and dry His feet with her hair,
  • 00:03:48.141 --> 00:03:50.076
  • and dry His feet with her hair,it was such extravagant worship
  • 00:03:50.076 --> 00:03:51.244
  • it was such extravagant worshipthat Judas had a problem
  • 00:03:51.244 --> 00:03:52.211
  • that Judas had a problemwith it,
  • 00:03:52.211 --> 00:03:53.313
  • with it,and spoke up and said,
  • 00:03:53.313 --> 00:03:56.282
  • and spoke up and said,for what purpose is this waste?
  • 00:03:56.282 --> 00:03:58.785
  • for what purpose is this waste?He was upset not that the woman
  • 00:03:58.785 --> 00:04:00.153
  • He was upset not that the womangave something.
  • 00:04:00.153 --> 00:04:01.487
  • gave something.He was OK with the woman
  • 00:04:01.487 --> 00:04:03.089
  • He was OK with the womangiving something.
  • 00:04:03.089 --> 00:04:04.457
  • giving something.He just didn't think she should
  • 00:04:04.457 --> 00:04:07.160
  • He just didn't think she shouldhave given everything.
  • 00:04:07.160 --> 00:04:08.094
  • have given everything.And one of the priceless
  • 00:04:08.094 --> 00:04:09.595
  • And one of the pricelesslessons, if you don't wanna
  • 00:04:09.595 --> 00:04:13.166
  • lessons, if you don't wannaend up like Judas, is you --
  • 00:04:13.166 --> 00:04:14.534
  • end up like Judas, is you --usually when people
  • 00:04:14.534 --> 00:04:16.769
  • usually when peoplehave the attitude that they're,
  • 00:04:16.769 --> 00:04:17.670
  • have the attitude that they're,you know --
  • 00:04:17.670 --> 00:04:19.105
  • you know --I'm just gonna give Jesus
  • 00:04:19.105 --> 00:04:22.241
  • I'm just gonna give Jesussomething, but not everything,
  • 00:04:22.241 --> 00:04:24.944
  • something, but not everything,they end up giving
  • 00:04:24.944 --> 00:04:27.947
  • they end up givingand losing it all.
  • 00:04:27.947 --> 00:04:28.815
  • and losing it all.And that's what happened
  • 00:04:28.815 --> 00:04:30.216
  • And that's what happenedto Judas.
  • 00:04:30.216 --> 00:04:32.318
  • to Judas.Judas reached a point
  • 00:04:32.318 --> 00:04:34.187
  • Judas reached a pointwhere he lost it all.
  • 00:04:34.187 --> 00:04:36.122
  • where he lost it all.He actually reached a place
  • 00:04:36.122 --> 00:04:37.190
  • He actually reached a placewhere he said,
  • 00:04:37.190 --> 00:04:39.592
  • where he said,I'm OK with giving God
  • 00:04:39.592 --> 00:04:41.160
  • I'm OK with giving Godsomething, but I'm not
  • 00:04:41.160 --> 00:04:42.061

  • going to give Himcompletely everything.
  • 00:04:44.364 --> 00:04:45.131
  • completely everything.In other words,
  • 00:04:45.131 --> 00:04:47.100
  • In other words,it's partial commitment.
  • 00:04:47.100 --> 00:04:49.335
  • it's partial commitment.He refused to change.
  • 00:04:49.335 --> 00:04:51.237
  • He refused to change.Secondly, he was willing
  • 00:04:51.237 --> 00:04:52.739
  • Secondly, he was willingto give Jesus something,
  • 00:04:52.739 --> 00:04:55.041
