  • - Serita Jakes: Coming up on,
  • 00:00:08.060 --> 00:00:09.060
  • "The Potter's Touch."
  • 00:00:09.060 --> 00:00:10.220
  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes: You've
  • 00:00:10.220 --> 00:00:11.090
  • been saying, "When I get out,
  • 00:00:11.090 --> 00:00:12.190
  • I'm gonna praise the Lord."
  • 00:00:12.190 --> 00:00:14.020
  • God said, "No, that's why I'm
  • 00:00:14.020 --> 00:00:15.140
  • gonna leave you in.
  • 00:00:15.140 --> 00:00:16.260
  • I'm gonna leave you in 'til you
  • 00:00:16.260 --> 00:00:18.080
  • learn how to praise me while you
  • 00:00:18.080 --> 00:00:20.190
  • are in trouble.
  • 00:00:20.190 --> 00:00:22.140
  • You don't wait 'til the wall
  • 00:00:22.140 --> 00:00:24.010
  • falls down.
  • 00:00:24.010 --> 00:00:25.150
  • You're gonna shout in front of
  • 00:00:25.150 --> 00:00:27.010
  • a wall that's standing right up
  • 00:00:27.010 --> 00:00:29.220
  • in your face."
  • 00:00:29.220 --> 00:00:30.240
  • The Potter's Touch
  • 00:00:48.120 --> 00:00:50.160
  • - Bishop Jakes: So to those
  • 00:00:54.270 --> 00:00:55.180
  • of you who want to jot down
  • 00:00:55.180 --> 00:00:56.260
  • this recipe,
  • 00:00:57.230 --> 00:01:00.250
  • I'm gonna make God a BLT.
  • 00:01:02.070 --> 00:01:05.070
  • Yeah, I'm gonna make him a BLT.
  • 00:01:06.070 --> 00:01:09.070
  • Not that BLT, but I'm gonna talk
  • 00:01:12.050 --> 00:01:15.050
  • about body, I'm gonna talk about
  • 00:01:16.070 --> 00:01:19.070
  • lips, I'm gonna talk about
  • 00:01:19.070 --> 00:01:21.270
  • treasure.
  • 00:01:22.280 --> 00:01:25.280
  • These are the things that will
  • 00:01:25.280 --> 00:01:27.280
  • feed God.
  • 00:01:28.040 --> 00:01:31.040
  • These are the ingredients: the
  • 00:01:31.040 --> 00:01:33.090
  • body, the lips, the treasure.
  • 00:01:36.240 --> 00:01:39.240
  • These are your responsibilities
  • 00:01:40.000 --> 00:01:43.000
  • to God.
  • 00:01:43.000 --> 00:01:45.260
  • We're always telling you about
  • 00:01:45.260 --> 00:01:47.140
  • what God will do for you.
  • 00:01:47.140 --> 00:01:49.000
  • We do not teach you about your
  • 00:01:49.000 --> 00:01:51.010
  • responsibilities to God.
  • 00:01:51.170 --> 00:01:54.170
  • And this one-sided, narcissistic
  • 00:01:54.170 --> 00:01:56.080
  • type of preaching and teaching
  • 00:01:56.080 --> 00:01:58.070
  • and even parenting has produced
  • 00:01:58.070 --> 00:02:00.130
  • some strange human beings.
  • 00:02:01.230 --> 00:02:04.230
  • The reason our relationships
  • 00:02:04.230 --> 00:02:05.130
  • don't work, our marriages don't
  • 00:02:05.130 --> 00:02:06.230
  • work, the reason that we join a
  • 00:02:06.230 --> 00:02:08.280
  • church that we never go to, the
  • 00:02:08.280 --> 00:02:10.120
  • reason that we're not committed
  • 00:02:10.120 --> 00:02:12.090
  • in our places is because we're
  • 00:02:12.090 --> 00:02:14.200
  • self-consumed.
  • 00:02:14.230 --> 00:02:17.230
  • We don't understand that it's
  • 00:02:17.230 --> 00:02:19.150
  • not just about what you need in
  • 00:02:19.150 --> 00:02:22.030
  • a relationship.
  • 00:02:22.030 --> 00:02:23.010
  • It's not just about where your
  • 00:02:23.010 --> 00:02:24.160
  • parking space is in a church.
  • 00:02:24.160 --> 00:02:26.120
  • It's not just about whether
  • 00:02:26.120 --> 00:02:27.240
  • you're singing a solo this
  • 00:02:27.240 --> 00:02:29.000
  • morning.
  • 00:02:29.000 --> 00:02:29.220
  • It's not just about whether
  • 00:02:29.220 --> 00:02:30.190
  • they're using you at the
  • 00:02:30.190 --> 00:02:31.160
  • Greeters' Committee or not.
  • 00:02:31.160 --> 00:02:33.010
  • In Romans 12 and 1, there we
  • 00:02:39.190 --> 00:02:42.100
  • will find the illustrious,
  • 00:02:42.200 --> 00:02:45.200
  • erudite, and charismatic person
  • 00:02:45.200 --> 00:02:48.070
  • of the apostle Paul who is an
  • 00:02:48.070 --> 00:02:51.040
  • intellectual in his own right,
  • 00:02:51.040 --> 00:02:53.280
  • who is articulate to the degree
  • 00:02:53.280 --> 00:02:55.140
  • that he has sat at the feet of
  • 00:02:55.140 --> 00:02:57.070
  • Gamaliel, he is respected by all
  • 00:02:57.070 --> 00:02:58.270
  • the scholars, the sages of the
  • 00:02:58.270 --> 00:03:01.160
  • ages, the theologians.
  • 00:03:01.160 --> 00:03:04.100
  • He is known that he is strong
  • 00:03:04.220 --> 00:03:07.220
  • and virile and tenacious in his
  • 00:03:07.220 --> 00:03:09.280
  • commitments about whatever he
  • 00:03:09.280 --> 00:03:11.120
  • believes.
  • 00:03:11.120 --> 00:03:13.120
  • He was aggressive to the point
  • 00:03:13.120 --> 00:03:14.170
  • that when he was against
  • 00:03:14.170 --> 00:03:15.180
  • Christianity, he was a
  • 00:03:15.180 --> 00:03:17.050
  • Christian-killer and he
  • 00:03:17.050 --> 00:03:19.040
  • converted, he began to become
  • 00:03:19.040 --> 00:03:20.250
  • the chief apostle in the church
  • 00:03:20.250 --> 00:03:22.260
  • that brought about most of the
  • 00:03:22.260 --> 00:03:24.190
  • New Testament theology that we
  • 00:03:24.190 --> 00:03:26.050
  • have today.
  • 00:03:26.050 --> 00:03:27.180
  • This man, who is central to the
  • 00:03:27.180 --> 00:03:29.190
  • understanding of the New
  • 00:03:29.190 --> 00:03:30.180
  • Testament church, we find him in
  • 00:03:30.180 --> 00:03:33.110
  • the 12th chapter of Romans in a
  • 00:03:33.110 --> 00:03:35.210
  • precarious situation, a strange
  • 00:03:35.210 --> 00:03:38.140
  • situation, an odd situation.
  • 00:03:38.140 --> 00:03:41.060
  • Almost an inappropriate
  • 00:03:41.060 --> 00:03:42.060
  • situation, of somebody of such
  • 00:03:42.060 --> 00:03:43.250
  • stature and such intellectualism
  • 00:03:43.250 --> 00:03:46.050
  • who spoke in multiple different
  • 00:03:46.050 --> 00:03:48.060
  • languages.
  • 00:03:48.060 --> 00:03:49.050
  • You would not expect to find him
  • 00:03:49.050 --> 00:03:51.200
  • where you find him in Romans 12.
  • 00:03:51.200 --> 00:03:53.120
  • In Romans 12 and 1 we find this
  • 00:03:53.120 --> 00:03:55.220
  • high and lofty intellectual
  • 00:03:55.220 --> 00:03:57.080
  • individual on his knees.
  • 00:03:58.130 --> 00:04:01.150
  • What brings Paul to his knees?
  • 00:04:03.180 --> 00:04:06.180
  • He begins to write: "I beseech
  • 00:04:06.180 --> 00:04:08.120
  • you therefore, brethren, by the
  • 00:04:09.120 --> 00:04:12.120
  • mercies of God, that ye present
  • 00:04:12.120 --> 00:04:14.270
  • your bodies a living sacrifice."
  • 00:04:15.210 --> 00:04:18.210
  • These are Christians but they're
  • 00:04:18.210 --> 00:04:21.000
  • not committed, they're not
  • 00:04:21.000 --> 00:04:22.140
  • conformed.
  • 00:04:22.140 --> 00:04:23.140
  • They're not delivered, they're
  • 00:04:23.140 --> 00:04:24.180
  • not consecrated.
  • 00:04:24.180 --> 00:04:26.190
  • They are Christians but they're
  • 00:04:26.190 --> 00:04:27.180
  • not delivered, they're not
  • 00:04:27.180 --> 00:04:28.210
  • conformed.
  • 00:04:28.210 --> 00:04:29.190
  • They're not consecrated.
  • 00:04:29.190 --> 00:04:30.190
  • They are Christians but they're
  • 00:04:30.190 --> 00:04:31.240
  • not delivered, they're not
  • 00:04:31.240 --> 00:04:32.220
  • conformed.
  • 00:04:32.220 --> 00:04:33.170
  • They're not consecrated.
  • 00:04:33.170 --> 00:04:34.270
  • They are Christians but they're
  • 00:04:34.270 --> 00:04:35.290
  • not delivered, they're not
  • 00:04:35.290 --> 00:04:36.280
  • conformed.
  • 00:04:36.280 --> 00:04:37.250
  • They're not consecrated.
  • 00:04:37.250 --> 00:04:38.260
  • They are Christians but they're
  • 00:04:38.260 --> 00:04:40.000
  • not delivered, they're not
  • 00:04:40.000 --> 00:04:41.050
  • conformed.
  • 00:04:41.050 --> 00:04:42.000
  • They're not consecrated.
  • 00:04:42.000 --> 00:04:43.040
  • I wanna teach you about that
  • 00:04:43.040 --> 00:04:44.110
  • because people think that if
  • 00:04:44.110 --> 00:04:45.290
  • you're a Christian, you either
  • 00:04:45.290 --> 00:04:47.080
  • got it all together or you're
  • 00:04:47.080 --> 00:04:48.160
  • not really a Christian at all.
  • 00:04:48.160 --> 00:04:50.120
  • They were Christian enough that
  • 00:04:50.120 --> 00:04:52.070
  • he called them brethren, but
  • 00:04:52.070 --> 00:04:55.070
  • they were carnal enough that he
  • 00:04:55.070 --> 00:04:56.210
  • rebuked their commitment.
  • 00:04:56.220 --> 00:04:59.220
  • "I beg you by the mercies of
  • 00:04:59.220 --> 00:05:02.130
  • God, that you present your body
  • 00:05:05.010 --> 00:05:08.010
  • a living sacrifice, that you get
  • 00:05:10.050 --> 00:05:13.050
  • You keep trying to be happy.
  • 00:05:25.270 --> 00:05:28.270
  • I want you to be okay with being
  • 00:05:29.040 --> 00:05:32.040
  • uncomfortable.
  • 00:05:32.040 --> 00:05:33.010
  • Now the one thing about Jesus,
  • 00:05:33.010 --> 00:05:34.010
  • Jesus made the kind of altar
  • 00:05:34.010 --> 00:05:35.000
  • calls they don't make today.
  • 00:05:35.000 --> 00:05:36.200
  • He made the kind of altar calls
  • 00:05:36.200 --> 00:05:37.180
  • that would empty out a church.
  • 00:05:37.180 --> 00:05:39.060
  • He said, "I'm getting ready to
  • 00:05:39.060 --> 00:05:39.270
  • go to the cross.
  • 00:05:39.270 --> 00:05:40.180
  • I'm gonna die.
  • 00:05:40.180 --> 00:05:41.270
  • If you be my disciple, pick up
  • 00:05:41.270 --> 00:05:43.190
  • your cross and follow me."
  • 00:05:43.190 --> 00:05:46.180
  • That's a hard altar call.
  • 00:05:46.180 --> 00:05:48.230
  • I don't care how well you can
  • 00:05:48.230 --> 00:05:49.200
  • preach, that's a hard altar
  • 00:05:49.200 --> 00:05:50.130
  • call.
  • 00:05:50.130 --> 00:05:51.200
  • If you're getting ready to jump
  • 00:05:51.200 --> 00:05:52.150
  • off a cliff and you say,
  • 00:05:52.150 --> 00:05:53.250
  • "If you're really my friend,
  • 00:05:53.250 --> 00:05:55.040
  • come jump with me," that's where
  • 00:05:55.040 --> 00:05:56.210
  • the friendship ends.
  • 00:05:56.210 --> 00:05:59.060
  • I will tell you right
  • 00:05:59.060 --> 00:06:00.060
  • on the edge of the cliff,
  • 00:06:00.060 --> 00:06:00.220
  • "I don't even like you.
  • 00:06:00.220 --> 00:06:03.120
  • Not only am I not your friend,
  • 00:06:03.120 --> 00:06:05.060
  • Jesus is open about crosses
  • 00:06:10.210 --> 00:06:12.260
  • and us.
  • 00:06:12.260 --> 00:06:14.280
  • "Take up your cross
  • 00:06:14.280 --> 00:06:17.010
  • and follow me."
  • 00:06:17.010 --> 00:06:18.230
  • But I think what stops us from
  • 00:06:18.230 --> 00:06:19.260
  • understanding how to present our
  • 00:06:19.260 --> 00:06:21.210
  • body as a living sacrifice is
  • 00:06:21.210 --> 00:06:23.150
  • the very thing that teaches it,
  • 00:06:23.150 --> 00:06:25.050
  • that is the cross itself.
  • 00:06:25.050 --> 00:06:27.040
  • Because when we start talking
  • 00:06:27.040 --> 00:06:28.070
  • about take up your cross and
  • 00:06:28.070 --> 00:06:29.150
  • follow me, we sing it and we
  • 00:06:29.150 --> 00:06:31.140
  • sway and we cry because we
  • 00:06:31.140 --> 00:06:33.290
  • picture wood.
  • 00:06:34.240 --> 00:06:37.240
  • But the crosses that you are
  • 00:06:37.240 --> 00:06:39.290
  • nailed to may not be wood.
  • 00:06:42.250 --> 00:06:45.250
  • The crosses that you're nailed
  • 00:06:45.250 --> 00:06:46.210
  • to may be a marriage
  • 00:06:46.210 --> 00:06:48.140
  • He said, "I beg you that you
  • 00:06:53.190 --> 00:06:56.190
  • present--I'm not gonna make you,
  • 00:06:56.190 --> 00:06:58.120
  • I'm not gonna take you, I'm not
  • 00:06:58.120 --> 00:06:59.220
  • gonna force you, I'm not gonna
  • 00:06:59.220 --> 00:07:00.290
  • drag you.
  • 00:07:00.290 --> 00:07:01.240
  • Present your body a living
  • 00:07:01.240 --> 00:07:03.180
  • sacrifice on something cold and
  • 00:07:05.270 --> 00:07:08.270
  • Because now I know you love me.
  • 00:07:22.290 --> 00:07:25.290
  • Now I know you love me.
  • 00:07:29.270 --> 00:07:32.270
  • I know you love me because you
  • 00:07:32.270 --> 00:07:35.240
  • stood there shaking on something
  • 00:07:35.240 --> 00:07:38.210
  • that wasn't working, and you was
  • 00:07:38.210 --> 00:07:41.180
  • faithful to something that hurt
  • 00:07:41.180 --> 00:07:44.130
  • your heart, and hurt your pride,
  • 00:07:44.200 --> 00:07:47.200
  • and hurt your feelings; and, no,
  • 00:07:47.200 --> 00:07:50.080
  • I'm not gonna take it away from
  • 00:07:50.080 --> 00:07:51.180
  • you, and I'm not gonna take you

  • give you for it.
  • 00:22:34.120 --> 00:22:35.270

  • fluctuates from day to day.
  • 00:22:49.000 --> 00:22:51.040
  • Really, you want to know from

  • day to day if you watch the

  • I was just in London the other
  • 00:22:57.260 --> 00:22:59.060

  • to exchange the dollar for the

  • the reproach of being a

  • 00:23:47.220 --> 00:23:49.020
  • He left all of that to dwell in
  • 00:23:49.020 --> 00:23:51.100
  • a tent with a bunch of church
  • 00:23:51.100 --> 00:23:53.090
  • folk.
  • 00:23:53.270 --> 00:23:56.270
  • And I thought, "My,
  • 00:23:56.270 --> 00:23:59.010
  • he's an amazing person."
  • 00:23:59.010 --> 00:24:00.160
  • But then I read the next verse.
  • 00:24:00.160 --> 00:24:02.180
  • "He esteemed the reproach of
  • 00:24:02.180 --> 00:24:04.070
  • Christ greater riches than the
  • 00:24:04.070 --> 00:24:06.160
  • treasures in Egypt: for he had
  • 00:24:06.160 --> 00:24:09.130
  • respect unto the recompense of
  • 00:24:10.250 --> 00:24:13.250
  • the reward."
  • 00:24:14.200 --> 00:24:17.200
  • Oh my God, he wasn't just nice.
  • 00:24:19.030 --> 00:24:22.030
  • He wasn't just nice, dude.
  • 00:24:22.030 --> 00:24:24.160
  • He wasn't just good and more, he
  • 00:24:24.160 --> 00:24:26.270
  • See, I'm an investor.
  • 00:24:31.150 --> 00:24:34.120
  • And see, a lot of people can't
  • 00:24:34.120 --> 00:24:35.290
  • invest because they have a
  • 00:24:35.290 --> 00:24:37.050
  • mentality that they can't stand
  • 00:24:37.050 --> 00:24:39.010
  • delayed gratification so they
  • 00:24:39.010 --> 00:24:41.020
  • become great consumers--either
  • 00:24:41.020 --> 00:24:43.180
  • you're a great consumer or
  • 00:24:43.180 --> 00:24:44.170
  • you're a great investor.
  • 00:24:44.170 --> 00:24:45.220
  • What makes you a great consumer
  • 00:24:45.220 --> 00:24:46.270
  • is that you need to see
  • 00:24:46.270 --> 00:24:47.290
  • something back for your money
  • 00:24:47.290 --> 00:24:49.030
  • right now.
  • 00:24:49.030 --> 00:24:50.040
  • Great investors have the art of
  • 00:24:50.040 --> 00:24:51.210
  • delayed gratification.
  • 00:24:51.210 --> 00:24:53.100
  • I can go ahead and suffer it
  • 00:24:53.100 --> 00:24:54.280
  • now.
  • 00:24:54.280 --> 00:24:55.280
  • If I sacrifice it now I'm gonna
  • 00:24:55.280 --> 00:24:58.180
  • reap it later.
  • 00:24:58.180 --> 00:25:00.030
  • People who cannot stand to wait
  • 00:25:00.030 --> 00:25:02.100
  • will never have anything.
  • 00:25:02.100 --> 00:25:04.160
  • You can't negotiate, you can't
  • 00:25:04.160 --> 00:25:06.190
  • succeed, you can't prosper, and
  • 00:25:06.190 --> 00:25:09.060
  • you can't invest.
  • 00:25:09.060 --> 00:25:10.230
  • You can purchase but you can't
  • 00:25:10.230 --> 00:25:13.200
  • invest.
  • 00:25:13.200 --> 00:25:14.290
  • An investor is somebody who
  • 00:25:14.290 --> 00:25:16.280
  • sacrifices for success.
  • 00:25:16.280 --> 00:25:19.230
  • Moses says, "I know it doesn't
  • 00:25:19.230 --> 00:25:22.110
  • look good right now."
  • 00:25:22.110 --> 00:25:24.060
  • He said, "It look like a bad
  • 00:25:24.060 --> 00:25:25.230
  • deal right now, but I'm gonna
  • 00:25:25.230 --> 00:25:27.260
  • leave the castles of Egypt and
  • 00:25:27.260 --> 00:25:30.070
  • dwell in the tents with the
  • 00:25:30.070 --> 00:25:31.290
  • church folk 'cause I'm investing
  • 00:25:31.290 --> 00:25:34.110
  • because I understand that the
  • 00:25:34.110 --> 00:25:36.230
  • recompense--"
  • 00:25:36.230 --> 00:25:39.170
  • C'mon, c'mon.
  • 00:25:39.170 --> 00:25:40.240
  • That means that God is gonna pay
  • 00:25:40.240 --> 00:25:43.020
  • me for my sacrifice.
  • 00:25:43.140 --> 00:25:46.140
  • It means that after I've
  • 00:25:46.140 --> 00:25:47.230
  • suffered a while, God is going
  • 00:25:47.230 --> 00:25:50.080
  • to establish me and make me the
  • 00:25:50.080 --> 00:25:53.010
  • head and not the tail.
  • 00:25:53.010 --> 00:25:55.130
