  • (female announcer) "Living Proof with Beth Moore"
  • 00:00:01.050 --> 00:00:02.100
  • is sponsored by LifeWay and the friends and partners
  • 00:00:02.110 --> 00:00:04.110
  • of Living Proof Ministries.
  • 00:00:04.120 --> 00:00:06.260
  • (Beth Moore) I am so full of joy this morning.
  • 00:00:07.230 --> 00:00:10.030
  • Anybody else got a little joy on 'em today?
  • 00:00:10.040 --> 00:00:15.050
  • We're gonna lift it up
  • 00:00:15.060 --> 00:00:16.230
  • and let the name of Jesus go forth in this place
  • 00:00:16.240 --> 00:00:20.220
  • in such power and in such presence.
  • 00:00:20.230 --> 00:00:24.050
  • We are so, so thrilled to be with you.
  • 00:00:24.060 --> 00:00:28.120
  • And I think what God's gonna remind us of today
  • 00:00:28.130 --> 00:00:31.110
  • is that we're in the middle of the story.
  • 00:00:31.120 --> 00:00:35.000
  • Do you not think that he's gonna tie up
  • 00:00:35.010 --> 00:00:36.200
  • every thread where you are concerned,
  • 00:00:36.210 --> 00:00:39.270
  • that he who started the plan knows how to end it?
  • 00:00:39.280 --> 00:00:44.180
  • We're gonna get some confidence in him today
  • 00:00:44.190 --> 00:00:47.170
  • in his ability to always bring something to a good finish.
  • 00:00:47.180 --> 00:00:53.200
  • Can somebody say, "Hallelujah"?
  • 00:00:53.210 --> 00:00:56.030
  • There's nothing, no sin, no transgression
  • 00:00:56.040 --> 00:00:59.080
  • that exceeds the power of the cross.
  • 00:01:00.230 --> 00:01:03.040
  • Thank you, God.
  • 00:01:03.050 --> 00:01:05.020
  • What we are most convinced defines us is what will most
  • 00:01:07.030 --> 00:01:12.100
  • motivate our decisions and most motivate the things
  • 00:01:12.110 --> 00:01:16.280
  • that we do and our behaviors and our attitudes
  • 00:01:16.290 --> 00:01:21.040
  • and aspects about things.
  • 00:01:21.050 --> 00:01:24.050
  • It matters.
  • 00:01:24.060 --> 00:01:26.140
  • Not just that it is true, but that we know that it is true.
  • 00:01:26.150 --> 00:01:32.280
  • 00:01:33.160 --> 00:01:40.160
  • Let me tell you something.
  • 00:01:43.030 --> 00:01:44.160
  • I don't come to talk, I come to interact in the Scriptures
  • 00:01:44.170 --> 00:01:51.170
  • with a group of people that want to see the Spirit speak
  • 00:01:54.130 --> 00:01:57.030
  • through his Word.
  • 00:01:57.040 --> 00:01:58.280
  • So it does not appeal to me to just get up and speak.
  • 00:01:58.290 --> 00:02:02.090
  • I want to interact.
  • 00:02:02.100 --> 00:02:03.240
  • Does anybody know what I'm talking about?
  • 00:02:03.250 --> 00:02:05.160
  • If the Spirit of God is doing something in you,
  • 00:02:05.170 --> 00:02:08.170
  • let somebody near you know it.
  • 00:02:08.180 --> 00:02:10.200
  • Can somebody react to what I'm saying?
  • 00:02:10.210 --> 00:02:14.000
  • Because if there's a groaning going on in your spirit,
  • 00:02:14.010 --> 00:02:16.240
  • let it come on out of your mouth.
  • 00:02:16.250 --> 00:02:18.070
  • Ah. Ah. Ah.
  • 00:02:18.080 --> 00:02:19.210
  • Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah.
  • 00:02:19.220 --> 00:02:21.190
  • Because that kind of participation, that means you
  • 00:02:21.200 --> 00:02:25.160
  • are like a fish jumping out of water for that bread
  • 00:02:25.170 --> 00:02:28.210
  • cast upon the water.
  • 00:02:28.220 --> 00:02:31.010
  • And I just want so much for this not to be just a speaking
  • 00:02:31.020 --> 00:02:35.010
  • environment, not some kind of show we're--you and I
  • 00:02:35.020 --> 00:02:40.010
  • are doing together.
  • 00:02:40.020 --> 00:02:41.110
  • My idea of a great time is a classroom where we can
  • 00:02:41.120 --> 00:02:45.050
  • all be together, throw open the Scriptures,
  • 00:02:45.060 --> 00:02:47.190
  • and we can hear one another.
  • 00:02:47.200 --> 00:02:50.020
  • I mean, we can respond to--we can say to him, "Yes, Jesus."
  • 00:02:50.030 --> 00:02:54.190
  • One of the things that's so important to me, I told you
  • 00:02:54.200 --> 00:02:57.040
  • last night, just the rest of my life for as long as the Lord
  • 00:02:57.050 --> 00:03:00.050
  • gives me, what has been helpful to me even if it sounds stupid,
  • 00:03:00.060 --> 00:03:03.250
  • even if it doesn't help.
  • 00:03:03.260 --> 00:03:05.230
  • If my heart's in the right place to try to share it,
  • 00:03:05.240 --> 00:03:07.270
  • I want to do it.
  • 00:03:07.280 --> 00:03:09.160
  • I just want to spend the rest of my life cheering you all on,
  • 00:03:09.170 --> 00:03:12.010
  • and one of the things that God has taught me to do that's been
  • 00:03:12.020 --> 00:03:15.130
  • so helpful to me is that when I'm in the Scriptures--remember,
  • 00:03:15.140 --> 00:03:20.020
  • when I'm reading the Scriptures, God is talking to me.
  • 00:03:20.030 --> 00:03:24.100
  • Now, what do you do when someone is talking to you?
  • 00:03:24.110 --> 00:03:27.120
  • You talk back.
  • 00:03:27.130 --> 00:03:29.060
  • And so continually when I get up in the morning,
  • 00:03:29.070 --> 00:03:31.280
  • I'm not just dry-reading, and I need to know if anybody's
  • 00:03:31.290 --> 00:03:34.250
  • catching on to what I'm saying.
  • 00:03:34.260 --> 00:03:36.230
  • I'm not just dry-reading.
  • 00:03:36.240 --> 00:03:38.190
  • When I'm reading the Scriptures, I am--he is speaking over me,
  • 00:03:38.200 --> 00:03:43.060
  • and it becomes dialogue.
  • 00:03:43.070 --> 00:03:44.260
  • I start speaking back.
  • 00:03:44.270 --> 00:03:46.280
  • I might say to him something like this:
  • 00:03:46.290 --> 00:03:49.010
  • "I don't understand what that means."
  • 00:03:49.020 --> 00:03:51.080
  • I might say to him, "Lord, this reminds me of so and so."
  • 00:03:51.090 --> 00:03:56.170
  • This morning, I said out loud to him--I threw my head back about
  • 00:03:56.180 --> 00:03:59.230
  • something he just--I felt like he just kind of put on my heart
  • 00:03:59.240 --> 00:04:02.080
  • and laughed.
  • 00:04:02.090 --> 00:04:03.200
  • I went, "You just--you just kill me.
  • 00:04:03.210 --> 00:04:05.210
  • You just kill me."
  • 00:04:05.220 --> 00:04:07.030
  • But, you know, I always know, you know, if he kills me,
  • 00:04:07.040 --> 00:04:09.150
  • he's going to resurrect me 'cause the thing about Jesus is
  • 00:04:09.160 --> 00:04:12.200
  • he can't leave anything dead because that's just
  • 00:04:12.210 --> 00:04:15.000
  • kind of how he is.
  • 00:04:15.010 --> 00:04:16.120
  • Interact with him. Interact with him.
  • 00:04:16.130 --> 00:04:19.160
  • This is all interaction.
  • 00:04:19.170 --> 00:04:21.010
  • The church is.
  • 00:04:21.020 --> 00:04:22.250
  • The church is community. It's interaction.
  • 00:04:22.260 --> 00:04:26.080
  • If all we're doing is going to our church service on Sunday,
  • 00:04:26.090 --> 00:04:30.110
  • we're going to wait till it starts 'cause we don't want to
  • 00:04:30.120 --> 00:04:32.170
  • have to deal with anybody.
  • 00:04:32.180 --> 00:04:34.040
  • We're going to slip in and we're going to slip out before it ends
  • 00:04:34.050 --> 00:04:38.210
  • because we want to make sure we have no interaction.
  • 00:04:38.220 --> 00:04:41.030
  • Well, see, we miss the body.
  • 00:04:41.040 --> 00:04:43.150
  • We miss the body of Christ.
  • 00:04:43.160 --> 00:04:45.210
  • I cannot say loudly enough: interaction, interaction.
  • 00:04:45.220 --> 00:04:50.040
  • That's what makes it work.
  • 00:04:50.050 --> 00:04:51.180
  • You interact with Jesus.
  • 00:04:51.190 --> 00:04:53.020
  • When you feel like he's speaking something off of that page
  • 00:04:53.030 --> 00:04:55.120
  • to you, you start talking back.
  • 00:04:55.130 --> 00:04:56.240
  • Start talking back. Start talking back.
  • 00:04:56.250 --> 00:04:58.220
  • If it reminds you--if that passage remind you
  • 00:04:58.230 --> 00:05:01.110
  • of somebody, tell him.
  • 00:05:01.120 --> 00:05:03.040
  • What would you do if your pastor was sitting across the table
  • 00:05:03.050 --> 00:05:05.250
  • talking to you about it?
  • 00:05:05.260 --> 00:05:07.140
  • You would say, "This reminds me of so and so."
  • 00:05:07.150 --> 00:05:09.140
  • Talk to him. Talk to him.
  • 00:05:09.150 --> 00:05:11.290
  • When people say, "I just don't know how anybody
  • 00:05:12.000 --> 00:05:14.050
  • could pray for an hour."
  • 00:05:14.060 --> 00:05:16.040
  • That's because they're dry-reading and dry-talking
  • 00:05:16.050 --> 00:05:18.020
  • and not even sure anybody's listening.
  • 00:05:18.030 --> 00:05:20.020
  • I just thought of what's the most interesting thing
  • 00:05:20.030 --> 00:05:21.220
  • in the Scriptures.
  • 00:05:21.230 --> 00:05:23.080
  • Do you remember when the disciples said to Jesus,
  • 00:05:23.090 --> 00:05:25.190
  • "Teach us how to pray?"
  • 00:05:25.200 --> 00:05:28.010
  • Listen, if there's anything that Jewish men knew how to do,
  • 00:05:28.020 --> 00:05:33.260
  • it was pray.
  • 00:05:33.270 --> 00:05:35.230
  • They did it continually.
  • 00:05:35.240 --> 00:05:38.090
  • They had prayers in the morning, prayers at noon,
  • 00:05:38.100 --> 00:05:40.050
  • prayers in the evening, prayers over their meals.
  • 00:05:40.060 --> 00:05:42.170
  • They--total ritual of prayer continually.
  • 00:05:42.180 --> 00:05:45.130
  • They prayed numerous times a day.
  • 00:05:45.140 --> 00:05:47.110
  • You--what they were asking Jesus was--is,
  • 00:05:47.120 --> 00:05:50.020
  • "Teach us to pray like you, like you."
  • 00:05:50.030 --> 00:05:53.200
  • And I think one reason is because they knew
  • 00:05:53.210 --> 00:05:57.120
  • when Jesus prayed, he knew somebody was listening.
  • 00:05:57.130 --> 00:06:01.070
  • What if you stop thinking to yourself, you hope God
  • 00:06:01.080 --> 00:06:04.130
  • is listening and you started acting like he really was?
  • 00:06:04.140 --> 00:06:08.260
  • He really was.
  • 00:06:08.270 --> 00:06:10.240
  • What if you threw open your Bible instead of just looking
  • 00:06:10.250 --> 00:06:13.060
  • down at it, reading pages that were written
  • 00:06:13.070 --> 00:06:15.210
  • hundreds and hundreds of years ago?
  • 00:06:15.220 --> 00:06:18.180
  • What if you looked up at him and said, "Holy Spirit,
  • 00:06:18.190 --> 00:06:21.050
  • drop on these pages?
  • 00:06:21.060 --> 00:06:23.140
  • This is your Word.
  • 00:06:23.150 --> 00:06:24.260
  • You have breathed these words on the page.
  • 00:06:24.270 --> 00:06:28.050
  • Cause it to jump up off that page and become alive
  • 00:06:28.060 --> 00:06:30.220
  • in my bones."
  • 00:06:30.230 --> 00:06:32.050
  • Anybody alive in the house with me this morning?
  • 00:06:32.060 --> 00:06:34.030
  • This is what I'm talking--turn with me, if you would please,
  • 00:06:34.040 --> 00:06:36.250
  • back to Ephesians; this time to Ephesians chapter 4.
  • 00:06:36.260 --> 00:06:41.280
  • Now, I need to know a recap of last night's points.
  • 00:06:41.290 --> 00:06:45.020
  • We've got two so far.
  • 00:06:45.030 --> 00:06:47.080
  • I need you to tell me what the first one is,
  • 00:06:47.090 --> 00:06:49.030
  • and I need it nice and loud.
  • 00:06:49.040 --> 00:06:50.130
  • In Christ, we have been completely redefined.
  • 00:06:50.140 --> 00:06:53.270
  • Now, that means, girlfriends, that we have not just been
  • 00:06:53.280 --> 00:06:56.120
  • refurbished, we have not just been recovered, we have not
  • 00:06:56.130 --> 00:06:58.150
  • just been repainted, we have been completely redefined.
  • 00:06:58.160 --> 00:07:02.060
  • If we have been reborn, we have been completely redefined,
  • 00:07:02.070 --> 00:07:08.000
  • and that brought us to a second point.
  • 00:07:08.010 --> 00:07:10.080
  • Tell me about redefinition.
  • 00:07:10.090 --> 00:07:11.260
  • Redefinition isn't just a better version of our old selves.
  • 00:07:11.270 --> 00:07:14.270
  • Don't you think that we tend to impose on our new life in Christ
  • 00:07:14.280 --> 00:07:20.130
  • all our old skills and talents?
  • 00:07:20.140 --> 00:07:24.030
  • I would ask you to--I challenge you by asking you this question.
  • 00:07:24.040 --> 00:07:27.080
  • What is it he has enabled you to do that you could not do at all
  • 00:07:27.090 --> 00:07:31.230
  • before your newness in him, before you walked with him
  • 00:07:31.240 --> 00:07:35.090
  • in the Spirit?
  • 00:07:35.100 --> 00:07:36.250
  • That it wasn't just a better version, and there is some of
  • 00:07:36.260 --> 00:07:39.160
  • that, that he then takes what we've been able to do,
  • 00:07:39.170 --> 00:07:43.100
  • perhaps a skill in our workplace, perhaps in academics
  • 00:07:43.110 --> 00:07:50.000
  • that we might have excelled in, and suddenly he is invading
  • 00:07:50.010 --> 00:07:53.230
  • all those parts of our lives with the Spirit and not just
  • 00:07:53.240 --> 00:07:57.120
  • our--with our rational and our human-limited intelligence.
  • 00:07:57.130 --> 00:08:02.140
  • Those are beautiful things.
  • 00:08:02.150 --> 00:08:04.010
  • But I want us to open up our minds according to
  • 00:08:04.020 --> 00:08:07.180
  • the Scriptures that he can also enable us to do what we were
  • 00:08:07.190 --> 00:08:11.050
  • completely incapable of doing before him.
  • 00:08:11.060 --> 00:08:15.220
  • And I challenge you ask him, "What would that be?
  • 00:08:15.230 --> 00:08:19.030
  • "Because what--I have a feeling that this is what I've imposed
  • 00:08:19.040 --> 00:08:23.170
  • "on this, and I'm just going to be better at what
  • 00:08:23.180 --> 00:08:26.040
  • I used to be able to do anyway."
  • 00:08:26.050 --> 00:08:27.240
  • No, no, no.
  • 00:08:27.250 --> 00:08:29.040
  • What way does he want to empower you that completely defies
  • 00:08:29.050 --> 00:08:33.200
  • who you would be without him?
  • 00:08:33.210 --> 00:08:37.180
  • These are very important matters.
  • 00:08:37.190 --> 00:08:39.070
  • Now, we've already seen that we can be redefined
  • 00:08:39.080 --> 00:08:41.280
  • in three different ways according to the Scriptures
  • 00:08:41.290 --> 00:08:44.140
  • in Colossians chapter 3, and those are extremely important.
  • 00:08:44.150 --> 00:08:48.000
  • Tell me what the first one is.
  • 00:08:48.010 --> 00:08:49.100
  • We are chosen.
  • 00:08:49.110 --> 00:08:51.170
  • How much difference does that make to anybody in the room?
  • 00:08:51.180 --> 00:08:54.130
  • Does anybody have any wound on them or any scarring at all
  • 00:08:54.140 --> 00:08:59.250
  • over not being chosen?
  • 00:08:59.260 --> 00:09:01.260
  • I need to see somebody's hand.
  • 00:09:01.270 --> 00:09:04.120
  • That really--that hits you, that hits a nerve.
  • 00:09:04.130 --> 00:09:07.150
  • I look continually at what Jesus brings to us that is healing
  • 00:09:07.160 --> 00:09:12.020
  • to us, that meant to be where he was very intentional.
  • 00:09:12.030 --> 00:09:15.250
  • "The world will do this to you, and this is what--this is
  • 00:09:15.260 --> 00:09:18.160
  • "going to be the bomb.
  • 00:09:18.170 --> 00:09:20.010
  • "This is going to be the remedy that I'm going to bring to it.
  • 00:09:20.020 --> 00:09:24.160
  • "I'm going to heal those wounds, and by my wounds, Beth,
  • 00:09:24.170 --> 00:09:27.270
  • you will be healed."
  • 00:09:27.280 --> 00:09:29.110
  • By his wounds, Angie, you are healed.
  • 00:09:29.120 --> 00:09:32.260
  • By his wounds, Sandy, you are healed.
  • 00:09:32.270 --> 00:09:35.210
  • And when we know, "I'm chosen," that begins to heal something in
  • 00:09:35.220 --> 00:09:39.260
  • us for every single time we have been overlooked,
  • 00:09:39.270 --> 00:09:44.070
  • every single time we have felt invisible, or like--this is even
  • 00:09:44.080 --> 00:09:47.090
  • worse, this is even worse than someone not giving us
  • 00:09:47.100 --> 00:09:49.260
  • any chance at all.
  • 00:09:49.270 --> 00:09:51.180
  • When we feel like they did give us a chance, but then
  • 00:09:51.190 --> 00:09:54.110
  • they didn't like what they found because then that
  • 00:09:54.120 --> 00:09:56.230
  • goes in even further.
  • 00:09:56.240 --> 00:09:58.280
  • Listen, people can love us that do not define us according to
  • 00:09:58.290 --> 00:10:05.270
  • God's perspective.
  • 00:10:06.030 --> 00:10:08.080
  • You get to reject anybody else's definition of you no matter how
  • 00:10:08.090 --> 00:10:13.070
  • much you love them and they love you if it is not
  • 00:10:13.080 --> 00:10:17.100
  • what Scripture says.
  • 00:10:17.110 --> 00:10:18.270
  • You have got to let Scripture speak louder over your soul than
  • 00:10:18.280 --> 00:10:23.080
  • even the persons that you feel like love you most.
  • 00:10:23.090 --> 00:10:27.190
  • He trumps everything, everything, everything.
  • 00:10:27.200 --> 00:10:30.150
  • Whatever defies what he says is a lie.
  • 00:10:30.160 --> 00:10:33.070
  • What defies is a lie. What defies is a lie.
  • 00:10:33.080 --> 00:10:36.060
  • Would you say that? What.
  • 00:10:36.070 --> 00:10:38.280
  • Tell it again. You got to know it.
  • 00:10:38.290 --> 00:10:41.100
  • You got to call it out, whether you call it out to them or not.
  • 00:10:41.110 --> 00:10:44.040
  • Sometimes you do have to come to a place where you say,
  • 00:10:44.050 --> 00:10:46.110
  • face to face if it just goes on and on, "I just need to tell you
  • 00:10:46.120 --> 00:10:50.040
  • "that I really--I have got to put my hand up
  • 00:10:50.050 --> 00:10:53.100
  • "and not receive that.
  • 00:10:53.110 --> 00:10:54.280
  • "That is really not what God is speaking over me.
  • 00:10:54.290 --> 00:10:57.190
  • "And I got to tell you, would you please--I'm asking you not
  • 00:10:57.200 --> 00:11:00.050
  • "to keep reconfirming that to me because I just have to reject
  • 00:11:00.060 --> 00:11:03.060
  • "that based on the Word of God.
  • 00:11:03.070 --> 00:11:06.090
  • I say that you would respect me on this one."
  • 00:11:06.100 --> 00:11:09.080
  • We're chosen.
  • 00:11:09.090 --> 00:11:10.180
  • We're not only chosen, but what was number two?
  • 00:11:10.190 --> 00:11:12.250
  • Holy, huge, and we're going to get to it more and more
  • 00:11:12.260 --> 00:11:14.260
  • in just a moment.
  • 00:11:14.270 --> 00:11:16.070
  • Number three is what? Beloved.
  • 00:11:16.080 --> 00:11:18.110
  • All right, knowing these three things that--say them all three.
  • 00:11:18.120 --> 00:11:21.150
  • The first one? Chosen.
  • 00:11:21.160 --> 00:11:22.290
  • Second? Holy.
  • 00:11:23.000 --> 00:11:24.260
  • Third?
  • 00:11:24.270 --> 00:11:26.100
  • Okay, this is this divine spine doctor.
  • 00:11:26.110 --> 00:11:30.270
  • If you want to know how we could go to the divine chiropractor
  • 00:11:30.280 --> 00:11:33.210
  • so that we could get our spine adjusted, our chins back where
  • 00:11:33.220 --> 00:11:37.290
  • they're supposed to be, our heads back, and our shoulders
  • 00:11:38.000 --> 00:11:41.100
  • back, this is it: to know those three things.
  • 00:11:41.110 --> 00:11:45.160
  • And from these three things-- when I know who I am
  • 00:11:45.170 --> 00:11:48.030
  • according to Scripture, then what's going to flow from me is
  • 00:11:48.040 --> 00:11:51.060
  • a compassion of heart, kindness, humility, meekness,
  • 00:11:51.070 --> 00:11:56.240
  • and patience, and love because you don't have to tell me
  • 00:11:56.250 --> 00:11:59.180
  • who I am.
  • 00:11:59.190 --> 00:12:01.080
  • I already know.
  • 00:12:01.090 --> 00:12:02.230
  • Do you remember in John chapter 13 when Jesus
  • 00:12:02.240 --> 00:12:05.220
  • gets up and he puts the towel on his waist and he gets down
  • 00:12:05.230 --> 00:12:09.120
  • and he washes the disciples' feet?
  • 00:12:09.130 --> 00:12:11.270
  • It's so interesting.
  • 00:12:11.280 --> 00:12:13.110
  • Don't miss it. Don't miss it.
  • 00:12:13.120 --> 00:12:14.210
  • Look at it this week if you get the chance.
  • 00:12:14.220 --> 00:12:16.140
  • John chapter 13, it says that he knew he had come from the Father
  • 00:12:16.150 --> 00:12:21.010
  • and knew he was returning to the Father.
  • 00:12:21.020 --> 00:12:23.040
  • So he got down and took the towel and wrapped it around him
  • 00:12:23.050 --> 00:12:29.000
  • and got the basin and washed their feet.
  • 00:12:29.010 --> 00:12:31.140
  • It is making a tie, read it for yourself, between who he knew
  • 00:12:31.150 --> 00:12:35.050
  • he was and how low he could go to wash their feet
  • 00:12:35.060 --> 00:12:40.040
  • because he already knew who he was.
  • 00:12:40.050 --> 00:12:41.260
  • See, we'll wash feet.
  • 00:12:41.270 --> 00:12:43.110
  • We won't have to worry that, you know,
  • 00:12:43.120 --> 00:12:45.120
  • "I need them to know who I am.
  • 00:12:45.130 --> 00:12:47.210
  • "They might not respect me if I serve them like this.
  • 00:12:47.220 --> 00:12:50.080
  • They won't respect me if I forgive them for the 50th time."
  • 00:12:50.090 --> 00:12:54.280
  • See, we're doing all of this because of our own
  • 00:12:55.230 --> 00:12:57.120
  • low self-esteem and for our ego needs.
  • 00:12:57.130 --> 00:12:59.200
  • When we begin to realize who we are in Christ, all of a sudden,
  • 00:12:59.210 --> 00:13:03.220
  • "I'll serve you. I'll be last.
  • 00:13:03.230 --> 00:13:06.220
  • "I don't care.
  • 00:13:06.230 --> 00:13:08.090
  • "I don't care because this morning I got my needs met
  • 00:13:08.100 --> 00:13:11.230
  • "by Jesus Christ.
  • 00:13:11.240 --> 00:13:13.260
  • "The one who fights for me is king.
  • 00:13:13.270 --> 00:13:17.190
  • "I heard the voice of the one who called the universe
  • 00:13:17.200 --> 00:13:24.200
  • "into existence out of nothing.
  • 00:13:24.230 --> 00:13:27.040
  • "I heard his voice through his Word this morning.
  • 00:13:27.050 --> 00:13:31.020
  • "So I don't need you to help me feel better about myself because
  • 00:13:31.030 --> 00:13:34.150
  • "I already know who I am and I already know that I am chosen,
  • 00:13:34.160 --> 00:13:38.020
  • that I am holy, and I am deeply beloved by God."

  • We'll worship, we'll be in the Word of God,
  • 00:15:17.250 --> 00:15:19.270
  • and we anticipate him doing more than we could ask or imagine.
  • 00:15:19.280 --> 00:15:24.070
  • I hope so much you'll join us.
  • 00:15:24.080 --> 00:15:26.030
  • All right, let's go into Ephesians 4.
  • 00:15:32.190 --> 00:15:35.080
  • I want to read verses 17 through 24.
  • 00:15:35.090 --> 00:15:37.220
  • "Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no
  • 00:15:37.230 --> 00:15:42.270
  • longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds."
  • 00:15:42.280 --> 00:15:48.060
  • Now, I want to pause there so that you'll hear this from our
  • 00:15:48.070 --> 00:15:51.000
  • point of view because most of us are Gentiles
  • 00:15:51.010 --> 00:15:53.220
  • and what they are talking about.
  • 00:15:53.230 --> 00:15:55.240
  • But of course the church has been made one now ever since
  • 00:15:55.250 --> 00:15:58.220
  • the day of Christ and the day of the outpouring of the Spirit
  • 00:15:58.230 --> 00:16:02.070
  • at Pentecost, and the dividing wall of hostility
  • 00:16:02.080 --> 00:16:05.200
  • has been removed.
  • 00:16:05.210 --> 00:16:07.040
  • That's Ephesians chapter 2.
  • 00:16:07.050 --> 00:16:08.140
  • So in our terms that we wouldn't understand that's hard for us
  • 00:16:08.150 --> 00:16:12.020
  • to wrap our minds around, but what we understand
  • 00:16:12.030 --> 00:16:14.240
  • is just worldliness, worldly--godless people.
  • 00:16:14.250 --> 00:16:18.050
  • I think that it's even easier for us to think them pagan.
  • 00:16:18.060 --> 00:16:21.220
  • We don't use that as much as we used to.
  • 00:16:21.230 --> 00:16:23.280
  • Heathen--that doesn't make as much sense to us as it would
  • 00:16:23.290 --> 00:16:27.080
  • have years ago in--speaking in theological terms.
  • 00:16:27.090 --> 00:16:31.220
  • But I think we can get it with the godless, godless,
  • 00:16:31.230 --> 00:16:35.010
  • with just worldly godly--godless people.
  • 00:16:35.020 --> 00:16:38.100
  • I think we can get that.
  • 00:16:38.110 --> 00:16:39.270
  • "You must no longer walk as the Gentiles do,"
  • 00:16:39.280 --> 00:16:42.160
  • as the godless in the world do, "in the futility of their minds.
  • 00:16:42.170 --> 00:16:46.080
  • "They're darkened in their understanding, alienated from
  • 00:16:46.090 --> 00:16:48.260
  • "the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them
  • 00:16:48.270 --> 00:16:52.000
  • "due to their hardness of heart.
  • 00:16:52.010 --> 00:16:53.230
  • "They have become callous and have given themselves
  • 00:16:53.240 --> 00:16:56.200
  • "up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity.
  • 00:16:56.210 --> 00:17:00.220
  • But that is not the way you learned Christ."
  • 00:17:00.230 --> 00:17:05.230
  • Just let that fall on you.
  • 00:17:05.240 --> 00:17:07.280
  • The power of that that goes, "You know what?
  • 00:17:07.290 --> 00:17:10.100
  • "You have gotten down into this mudslinging fight with all of
  • 00:17:10.110 --> 00:17:14.090
  • "them and that is not the way you learned Christ.
  • 00:17:14.100 --> 00:17:17.250
  • That isn't. You know better than this."
  • 00:17:17.260 --> 00:17:22.070
  • And see, I don't mind every now and then a,
  • 00:17:22.080 --> 00:17:24.220
  • "Beth, you know better than this," from God.
  • 00:17:24.230 --> 00:17:27.210
  • Anybody?
  • 00:17:27.220 --> 00:17:29.070
  • Just let it fall on you that you did not learn Christ this way.
  • 00:17:29.080 --> 00:17:35.260
  • You know this is not what you were taught.
  • 00:17:35.270 --> 00:17:37.290
  • And so it says, "But that is not the way you learned Christ,
  • 00:17:38.000 --> 00:17:41.170
  • "assuming that you have heard about him and we're taught in
  • 00:17:41.180 --> 00:17:43.230
  • him as the truth is in Jesus."
  • 00:17:43.240 --> 00:17:45.190
  • Somebody say, "As the truth is in Jesus."
  • 00:17:45.200 --> 00:17:49.180
  • Now, this is going to get on us today, but we're going to want
  • 00:17:49.190 --> 00:17:51.260
  • it to get on us, girls.
  • 00:17:51.270 --> 00:17:53.140
  • We're going to want it to get on us 'cause this is our freedom.
  • 00:17:53.150 --> 00:17:56.050
  • We were taught to put off our old self which belongs to our
  • 00:17:56.060 --> 00:18:01.070
  • former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful
  • 00:18:01.080 --> 00:18:06.010
  • desires, to be renewed in the spirit of our minds, and to put
  • 00:18:06.020 --> 00:18:11.160
  • on the new self created after the likeness of God
  • 00:18:11.170 --> 00:18:17.080
  • in true righteousness and holiness.
  • 00:18:17.090 --> 00:18:20.140
  • I want you to hear these words with me today, and let's start
  • 00:18:20.150 --> 00:18:22.240
  • trying to take them apart.
  • 00:18:22.250 --> 00:18:25.000
  • The world's boastful mentality is nothing but futility.
  • 00:18:25.010 --> 00:18:29.210
  • Now, this I say in testifying the Lord that you must no longer
  • 00:18:29.220 --> 00:18:34.060
  • walk as the godless do in the futility of their minds.
  • 00:18:34.070 --> 00:18:40.100
  • The world's boastful mentality is nothing but futility,
  • 00:18:40.110 --> 00:18:45.040
  • and I'm going to tell you something.
  • 00:18:45.050 --> 00:18:46.150
  • This is huge to us because one of the things that really gets
  • 00:18:46.160 --> 00:18:49.120
  • us, one of the things that keeps us from being bold as believers
  • 00:18:49.130 --> 00:18:53.130
  • and really living out our witness and sharing our faith is
  • 00:18:53.140 --> 00:18:57.120
  • because the world makes us feel stupid.
  • 00:18:57.130 --> 00:19:00.160
  • Now, am I telling the truth? Makes us feel stupid.
  • 00:19:00.170 --> 00:19:03.110
  • And they sound so smart, don't they?
  • 00:19:03.120 --> 00:19:07.010
  • They sound so smart and so smug in their godlessness
  • 00:19:07.020 --> 00:19:11.030
  • and treat us like we're so gullible and so stupid.
  • 00:19:11.040 --> 00:19:14.220
  • And so what Satan has done from the very beginning, check this
  • 00:19:14.230 --> 00:19:18.060
  • out in Genesis chapter 3, is he has placed constant bets on our
  • 00:19:18.070 --> 00:19:23.220
  • low tolerance for feeling stupid.
  • 00:19:23.230 --> 00:19:27.150
  • He knows how effective this is.
  • 00:19:27.160 --> 00:19:29.250
  • This is why he came to--even he said it this way:
  • 00:19:29.260 --> 00:19:33.080
  • "Mmh, did God really say?
  • 00:19:33.090 --> 00:19:37.210
  • "'Cause it's not even true.
  • 00:19:37.220 --> 00:19:43.080
  • Why do you believe that God stuff?"
  • 00:19:43.090 --> 00:19:46.190
  • From the very beginning, there is nothing new under the sun.
  • 00:19:46.200 --> 00:19:50.290
  • He is still doing the same thing, placing a bet on the fact
  • 00:19:51.000 --> 00:19:56.020
  • that you're going to have and I'm going to have
  • 00:19:56.030 --> 00:19:58.060
  • a low tolerance for feeling stupid.
  • 00:19:58.070 --> 00:20:02.220
  • The Scripture say we are not the ones that are ignorant.
  • 00:20:02.230 --> 00:20:06.220
  • Now, we still have to go and be humble and loving and gentle
  • 00:20:06.230 --> 00:20:11.080
  • spirit and bonded all together in love, but you need to know
  • 00:20:11.090 --> 00:20:16.180
  • today, on this date that you are not ignorant.
  • 00:20:16.190 --> 00:20:21.170
  • Listen, there is nobody any dumber than somebody
  • 00:20:21.180 --> 00:20:27.110
  • who thinks they're smart.
  • 00:20:27.120 --> 00:20:30.020
  • We will never ever be dumber than when we think we are
  • 00:20:30.030 --> 00:20:34.290
  • so, so smart because what has happened--notice if I--I don't
  • 00:20:35.000 --> 00:20:40.210
  • know if you like to do this.
  • 00:20:40.220 --> 00:20:42.090
  • I like to make diagrams. Do any of you also?
  • 00:20:42.100 --> 00:20:45.140
  • I always have--I have my journal with me when I am doing
  • 00:20:45.150 --> 00:20:47.240
  • my quiet time, but I also have just some stacks of plain paper
  • 00:20:47.250 --> 00:20:52.240
  • 'cause I like to doodle while I'm in the Scriptures
  • 00:20:52.250 --> 00:20:55.150
  • and just do diagrams, write it out.
  • 00:20:55.160 --> 00:20:57.110
  • And one of the things that I did in regard to this lesson,
  • 00:20:57.120 --> 00:21:00.240
  • I just drew a person and I made a connection between the heart
  • 00:21:00.250 --> 00:21:04.090
  • and the head because notice, it all goes back
  • 00:21:04.100 --> 00:21:06.290
  • to the hardened heart.
  • 00:21:07.000 --> 00:21:08.260
  • It said, "Because they have a hardened heart,
  • 00:21:08.270 --> 00:21:11.180
  • "they were ignorant because they were darkened
  • 00:21:11.190 --> 00:21:13.270
  • in their understanding."
  • 00:21:13.280 --> 00:21:15.150
  • They think they're so smart because it's all the light that
  • 00:21:15.160 --> 00:21:18.280
  • they've got because they're darkened in their understanding,
  • 00:21:18.290 --> 00:21:21.240
  • but it's because their heart is hard.
  • 00:21:21.250 --> 00:21:24.110
  • When the heart is hard, the head is also hard.
  • 00:21:24.120 --> 00:21:28.210
  • Let me say this to you.
  • 00:21:28.220 --> 00:21:30.080
  • The harder the heart, the harder the head.
  • 00:21:30.090 --> 00:21:35.030
  • Now, what is true about the world is also true
  • 00:21:35.040 --> 00:21:38.160
  • of us in Christ.
  • 00:21:38.170 --> 00:21:40.110
  • You and I want there to be a flashing red light
  • 00:21:40.120 --> 00:21:43.220
  • in our lives when our hearts are getting harder and harder,
  • 00:21:43.230 --> 00:21:47.190
  • and listen, it's going to happen.
  • 00:21:47.200 --> 00:21:49.120
  • We're going to have to fight it and we're going to have to be
  • 00:21:49.130 --> 00:21:51.180
  • on top of it because this world is so rough and this world is
  • 00:21:51.190 --> 00:21:55.070
  • so cold and this world is so brutal.
  • 00:21:55.080 --> 00:21:58.090
  • There's so much violence in this world, there's so much meanness
  • 00:21:58.100 --> 00:22:01.170
  • in this world, and we have so much information
  • 00:22:01.180 --> 00:22:04.130
  • about all of it.
  • 00:22:04.140 --> 00:22:06.060
  • That the Word of God says when Jesus was describing what
  • 00:22:06.070 --> 00:22:09.080
  • the world would be like toward the last days, he said
  • 00:22:09.090 --> 00:22:13.090
  • in Matthew 24, "Hearts will grow cold--the hearts
  • 00:22:13.100 --> 00:22:17.000
  • of most will grow cold."
  • 00:22:17.010 --> 00:22:19.100
  • And it--I believe one reason is because it's a defense
  • 00:22:19.110 --> 00:22:23.020
  • against this world.
  • 00:22:23.030 --> 00:22:24.120
  • So we have to watch it because let me tell you something.
  • 00:22:24.130 --> 00:22:27.090
  • When you think you don't know--"This is just my defense.
  • 00:22:27.100 --> 00:22:29.080
  • I am cold-hearted, but it keeps me safe."
  • 00:22:29.090 --> 00:22:31.110
  • You know what?
  • 00:22:31.120 --> 00:22:32.280
  • It makes us stupid because the harder our heart,
  • 00:22:32.290 --> 00:22:36.290
  • the harder our head.
  • 00:22:37.000 --> 00:22:38.210
  • And it won't soak it.
  • 00:22:38.220 --> 00:22:40.060
  • It won't absorb the truth, but we'll think we are.
  • 00:22:40.070 --> 00:22:43.060
  • We'll think we are.
  • 00:22:43.070 --> 00:22:44.290
  • So we just keep making summations based
  • 00:22:45.000 --> 00:22:47.080
  • on wrong information.
  • 00:22:47.090 --> 00:22:49.040
  • If we want to perceive the true wisdom and knowledge of God,
  • 00:22:49.050 --> 00:22:52.140
  • it's going to come to a soft heart, a soft heart,
  • 00:22:52.150 --> 00:22:58.070
  • and I'm hoping what you're going see today is that you've got
  • 00:22:58.080 --> 00:23:01.060
  • this decision you get to make.
  • 00:23:01.070 --> 00:23:03.100
  • This is a life that is alienated from God and then this is life
  • 00:23:03.110 --> 00:23:07.000
  • with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 00:23:07.010 --> 00:23:09.130
  • What I'm hoping to show you is it what mentality many people
  • 00:23:09.140 --> 00:23:13.180
  • have about going to heaven is that, you know what?
  • 00:23:13.190 --> 00:23:17.170
  • None of it really pays off here.
  • 00:23:17.180 --> 00:23:20.210
  • It just all pays off there if indeed there is a heaven.
  • 00:23:20.220 --> 00:23:23.280
  • That is not true. That is not true.
  • 00:23:23.290 --> 00:23:25.240
  • Yes, there is much suffering and hardship on this
  • 00:23:25.250 --> 00:23:28.150
  • broken and flawed planet, but I will tell you this.
  • 00:23:28.160 --> 00:23:32.250
  • That godliness has an impact into every single area
  • 00:23:32.260 --> 00:23:36.290
  • of our lives, every area of our lives.
  • 00:23:37.000 --> 00:23:40.260
  • And so the juxtaposition of the life alienated from God
  • 00:23:40.270 --> 00:23:45.190
  • and then set apart in God is so dramatic because what this
  • 00:23:45.200 --> 00:23:50.010
  • passage is teaching us is that you're our old selves,
  • 00:23:50.020 --> 00:23:54.090
  • our worldly selves, and the world itself
  • 00:23:54.100 --> 00:23:56.230
  • is increasingly disintegrating and denigrating.
  • 00:23:56.240 --> 00:24:02.290
  • It is spiraling down at all times.
  • 00:24:03.000 --> 00:24:06.280
  • The opposite of that we would find in 2 Corinthians chapter 3,
  • 00:24:06.290 --> 00:24:10.230
  • that we are being changed by the Spirit of God
  • 00:24:10.240 --> 00:24:16.230
  • from one degree of glory to the next.
  • 00:24:16.240 --> 00:24:21.020
  • That we're not static.
  • 00:24:21.030 --> 00:24:22.140
  • That we're--humans are never static.
  • 00:24:22.150 --> 00:24:24.230
  • We're either spiraling down or we're spiraling up.
  • 00:24:24.240 --> 00:24:28.200
  • So this is what I want to tell you.
  • 00:24:28.210 --> 00:24:30.130
  • You can either have a hard heart and a hard mind and be dumber
  • 00:24:30.140 --> 00:24:33.170
  • than dirt and not know it, and there's nothing worse.
  • 00:24:33.180 --> 00:24:35.240
  • The only thing worse than being dumber than dirt is not knowing
  • 00:24:35.250 --> 00:24:38.100
  • that we're dumber than dirt, and we've got a hardened heart.
  • 00:24:38.110 --> 00:24:41.020
  • We think we're smart, but we're dumber than dirt.
  • 00:24:41.030 --> 00:24:42.280
  • I expected--when I went and looked up the word,
  • 00:24:42.290 --> 00:24:45.230
  • I expected to find a form of the word sclera, sclera,
  • 00:24:45.240 --> 00:24:51.260
  • which would be scleroderma, hardening of the skin.
  • 00:24:51.270 --> 00:24:56.290
  • Sclera is hardening.
  • 00:24:57.000 --> 00:24:58.120
  • There is that scleracordia in Greek which will mean hardness
  • 00:24:58.130 --> 00:25:01.290
  • of heart, but that's not the one I found.
  • 00:25:02.000 --> 00:25:03.220
  • The Greek word that is translated here into hardness of
  • 00:25:03.230 --> 00:25:07.280
  • heart is porosis, porosis, and it has a specific kind
  • 00:25:07.290 --> 00:25:12.010
  • and I learned from one of my commentaries it's a state of
  • 00:25:12.020 --> 00:25:16.040
  • being petrified.
  • 00:25:16.050 --> 00:25:18.020
  • So it's describing the point at which a bone has been broken
  • 00:25:18.030 --> 00:25:22.140
  • and it has been reset and then calloused harder than it was
  • 00:25:22.150 --> 00:25:26.160
  • to start with.
  • 00:25:26.170 --> 00:25:27.260
  • Now, let me say this to you because this word--a word is
  • 00:25:27.270 --> 00:25:30.170
  • used like this for restoring a broken bone or joints
  • 00:25:30.180 --> 00:25:35.280
  • that are popped out.
  • 00:25:35.290 --> 00:25:37.080
  • Even in Galatians 6, verse 1, "For restoring someone
  • 00:25:37.090 --> 00:25:40.260
  • "who has fallen, that you who are spiritual must restore him
  • 00:25:40.270 --> 00:25:44.120
  • and with humility."
  • 00:25:44.130 --> 00:25:46.140
  • But this particular, showing the opposite side of it,
  • 00:25:46.150 --> 00:25:49.060
  • what I'm guessing--now, this is not what you take down in pen.
  • 00:25:49.070 --> 00:25:52.160
  • I'm just throwing this out to you.
  • 00:25:52.170 --> 00:25:54.040
  • That where some of this hardness comes from is that there's
  • 00:25:54.050 --> 00:25:56.060
  • brokenness that comes in this world.
  • 00:25:56.070 --> 00:25:58.090
  • Smartest people on earth cannot keep it from happening.
  • 00:25:58.100 --> 00:26:00.210
  • They can try to keep themselves from feeling it, but they cannot
  • 00:26:00.220 --> 00:26:03.030
  • keep it from happening.
  • 00:26:03.040 --> 00:26:04.140
  • And so what I think is when we don't have God or we're not
  • 00:26:04.150 --> 00:26:06.230
  • drawn in close to him, we try to fix it ourselves
  • 00:26:06.240 --> 00:26:10.010
  • and we fix it ourselves what--however it may be.
  • 00:26:10.020 --> 00:26:11.280
  • It may be with all sorts of means that the world would
  • 00:26:11.290 --> 00:26:16.160
  • affirm and look really good to the world, whether it's success
  • 00:26:16.170 --> 00:26:19.200
  • or whether it's just putting on some kind of an exterior
  • 00:26:19.210 --> 00:26:24.030
  • that is false.
  • 00:26:24.040 --> 00:26:25.230
  • Whatever it may be--it could be drinking.
  • 00:26:25.240 --> 00:26:27.170
  • It could be snorting. It could be anything.
  • 00:26:27.180 --> 00:26:30.020
  • It could be anything, anything that would keep us where we are
  • 00:26:30.030 --> 00:26:33.130
  • covering over a broken place that we have tried to fix
  • 00:26:33.140 --> 00:26:35.170
  • for ourselves and we get harder and harder and harder.
  • 00:26:35.180 --> 00:26:39.140
  • You are chosen, holy, and beloved and you're acting like
  • 00:26:48.190 --> 00:26:54.020
  • somebody who's been rejected and is unholy and common
  • 00:26:54.030 --> 00:26:58.100
  • and is not loved.
  • 00:26:58.110 --> 00:27:00.290
  • Do you want to know how people who got into their bones that
  • 00:27:01.000 --> 00:27:04.260
  • they're just rejected and they are unholy and common
  • 00:27:04.270 --> 00:27:09.180
  • and they are unloved act?
  • 00:27:09.190 --> 00:27:12.180
  • And he's saying, "That is not the way you learned Christ.
  • 00:27:12.190 --> 00:27:17.000
  • Know who you are. Act like who you are."
  • 00:27:17.010 --> 00:27:19.250
