  • study's all about.The "him" is given to us a few
  • 00:02:59.304 --> 00:03:02.207
  • The "him" is given to us a fewverses above in verse 4,
  • 00:03:02.207 --> 00:03:03.475
  • verses above in verse 4,as Peter's talking to these
  • 00:03:03.475 --> 00:03:05.677

  • Because the Chief Shepherd--He's gonna appear and these
  • 00:03:21.660 --> 00:03:23.862

  • 00:12:06.518 --> 00:12:09.187
  • And you know whatI'm concerned about?

  • That's what I'm concerned about.I know you're concerned about

  • are gonna come from,I'm concerned about you."
  • 00:12:24.369 --> 00:12:28.406
  • I'm concerned about you."You are the concern of the Chief
  • 00:12:28.406 --> 00:12:30.308
  • And there's almost 8 billion
  • 00:12:36.881 --> 00:12:39.083
  • And there's almost 8 billionof us on the planet,
  • 00:12:39.083 --> 00:12:40.852
  • of us on the planet,but don't you let that lead you
  • 00:12:40.852 --> 00:12:43.388
  • but don't you let that lead youto believe God can't tell you
  • 00:12:43.388 --> 00:12:44.355
  • to believe God can't tell youhow many hairs are on your
  • 00:12:44.355 --> 00:12:47.025
  • how many hairs are on yourhead right now,
  • 00:12:47.025 --> 00:12:49.394
  • head right now,and He's concerned about you.
  • 00:12:49.394 --> 00:12:51.095
  • and He's concerned about you.Do you see how this anxiety
  • 00:12:51.095 --> 00:12:52.664
  • But there's a couple of things
  • 00:12:56.634 --> 00:12:58.770
  • But there's a couple of thingsthat you have to see before.
  • 00:12:58.770 --> 00:13:00.305
  • that you have to see before.Two things that are tied
  • 00:13:00.305 --> 00:13:01.673
  • Two things that are tiedup in whether this is going
  • 00:13:01.673 --> 00:13:03.174
  • up in whether this is goingto work for us today
  • 00:13:03.174 --> 00:13:04.175
  • to work for us todayand they're in the text.
  • 00:13:04.175 --> 00:13:07.045
  • and they're in the text.The first one is humility.
  • 00:13:07.045 --> 00:13:09.280
  • The first one is humility.Humility towards others,
  • 00:13:09.280 --> 00:13:12.217
  • Humility towards others,and humility towards God.
  • 00:13:12.217 --> 00:13:16.454
  • and humility towards God.Humility is a key that opens
  • 00:13:16.454 --> 00:13:18.189
  • Humility is a key that opensthe door and frees you
  • 00:13:18.189 --> 00:13:20.491
  • the door and frees youfrom anxiety.
  • 00:13:20.491 --> 00:13:21.693
  • from anxiety.You're like, "I don't see how
  • 00:13:21.693 --> 00:13:23.528
  • You're like, "I don't see howthat could be possible."
  • 00:13:23.528 --> 00:13:25.129
  • that could be possible."Well the way that it's possible
  • 00:13:25.129 --> 00:13:27.665
  • Well the way that it's possibleis most of our anxiety
  • 00:13:27.665 --> 00:13:29.667
  • is most of our anxietyis related to other people,
  • 00:13:29.667 --> 00:13:31.836
  • is related to other people,amen?
  • 00:13:31.836 --> 00:13:32.604
  • amen?Some of it's related
  • 00:13:32.604 --> 00:13:33.304
  • Some of it's relatedto the economy,
  • 00:13:33.304 --> 00:13:33.972
  • to the economy,and right now we're
  • 00:13:33.972 --> 00:13:35.506
  • and right now we'rein a circumstantial anxiety
  • 00:13:35.506 --> 00:13:37.976
  • in a circumstantial anxietyvortex so we do get that.
  • 00:13:37.976 --> 00:13:39.844
  • vortex so we do get that.We're anxious over elections,
  • 00:13:39.844 --> 00:13:41.679
  • We're anxious over elections,we're anxious over economies,
  • 00:13:41.679 --> 00:13:43.781
  • we're anxious over economies,we're anxious over pandemics.
  • 00:13:43.781 --> 00:13:45.316
  • we're anxious over pandemics.But most of the things that we
  • 00:13:45.316 --> 00:13:47.218
  • But most of the things that weget anxious about in life have
  • 00:13:47.218 --> 00:13:49.087
  • get anxious about in life haveto do with our boss, or our
  • 00:13:49.087 --> 00:13:51.823
  • to do with our boss, or ourcoworker, or a family member,
  • 00:13:51.823 --> 00:13:53.691
  • coworker, or a family member,it's people related.
  • 00:13:53.691 --> 00:13:54.926
  • it's people related.And so that's how he starts
  • 00:13:54.926 --> 00:13:56.895
  • And so that's how he startsthis, "Clothe yourselves,
  • 00:13:56.895 --> 00:13:59.631
  • this, "Clothe yourselves,all of you, with humility
  • 00:13:59.631 --> 00:14:02.166
  • all of you, with humilitytowards one another because,
  • 00:14:02.166 --> 00:14:04.569
  • towards one another because,“God opposes the proud
  • 00:14:04.569 --> 00:14:06.304
  • “God opposes the proudbut gives grace to the humble.”
  • 00:14:06.304 --> 00:14:07.005
  • but gives grace to the humble.”Now this is a principle
  • 00:14:07.005 --> 00:14:07.805
  • Now this is a principlefor life.
  • 00:14:07.805 --> 00:14:08.539
  • for life.What does that mean?
  • 00:14:08.539 --> 00:14:10.341
  • What does that mean?It means if you wanna
  • 00:14:10.341 --> 00:14:13.645
  • It means if you wannafight God, be proud.
  • 00:14:13.645 --> 00:14:14.979
  • fight God, be proud.You just got in the ring
  • 00:14:14.979 --> 00:14:17.181
  • You just got in the ringwith the Almighty
  • 00:14:17.181 --> 00:14:19.918
  • with the Almightyand you're going down.
  • 00:14:19.918 --> 00:14:22.387
  • and you're going down.But if you wanna flow with God,
  • 00:14:22.387 --> 00:14:25.623
  • But if you wanna flow with God,get low 'cause He gives grace
  • 00:14:25.623 --> 00:14:27.492
  • get low 'cause He gives graceto the humble.
  • 00:14:27.492 --> 00:14:28.826
  • to the humble.We spend a lot of time
  • 00:14:28.826 --> 00:14:30.094
  • We spend a lot of timeat the end of the summer
  • 00:14:30.094 --> 00:14:32.230
  • at the end of the summerin the ocean kayaking and man,
  • 00:14:32.230 --> 00:14:33.131
  • in the ocean kayaking and man,when you get--

  • And this is a principle of life.If you're proud today,
  • 00:15:24.649 --> 00:15:25.149
  • If you're proud today,that's great.

  • 00:15:32.023 --> 00:15:33.624
  • to live life.If you're proud you're just
