  • 00:01:00.050 --> 00:01:00.240
  • now are pushing back already
  • 00:01:00.240 --> 00:01:01.140
  • in your mind, thinking,
  • 00:01:01.140 --> 00:01:02.040
  • "You know what,
  • 00:01:02.040 --> 00:01:02.230
  • this is not spiritual, Pastor.
  • 00:01:02.230 --> 00:01:03.250
  • This is just about looking good,
  • 00:01:03.250 --> 00:01:05.020
  • and that's not right,
  • 00:01:05.020 --> 00:01:05.270
  • and that's just so shallow.
  • 00:01:05.270 --> 00:01:06.240
  • I can't believe you're focused
  • 00:01:06.240 --> 00:01:07.190
  • on the physical body today.
  • 00:01:07.190 --> 00:01:08.190
  • I want to get spiritual
  • 00:01:08.190 --> 00:01:09.150
  • and not physical."
  • 00:01:09.150 --> 00:01:10.120
  • Well, let me ask you something.
  • 00:01:10.120 --> 00:01:11.050
  • What do you think the greatest
  • 00:01:11.050 --> 00:01:12.080
  • spiritual move ever made
  • 00:01:12.080 --> 00:01:13.030
  • in the entire universe was?
  • 00:01:13.030 --> 00:01:14.010
  • It's when Jesus did a physical
  • 00:01:14.010 --> 00:01:16.140
  • act and gave his physical body
  • 00:01:18.200 --> 00:01:21.200
  • - Bil: You are the church,
  • 00:01:34.090 --> 00:01:35.080
  • - Pastor Bil: Welcome!
  • 00:01:40.230 --> 00:01:42.190
  • How you guys doing?
  • 00:01:42.210 --> 00:01:45.210
  • Great to have you here.
  • 00:01:45.210 --> 00:01:48.030
  • So today's message is called
  • 00:01:48.030 --> 00:01:50.210
  • Straight Outta Shape.
  • 00:01:50.210 --> 00:01:52.250
  • You're not going to like me
  • 00:01:52.250 --> 00:01:55.200
  • by the end of this message.
  • 00:01:55.200 --> 00:01:56.220
  • This is a tough subject.
  • 00:01:56.220 --> 00:01:58.200
  • I gotta be honest with you.
  • 00:01:58.200 --> 00:01:59.100
  • The last time I taught on this
  • 00:01:59.100 --> 00:02:00.210
  • subject was over ten years ago,
  • 00:02:00.210 --> 00:02:02.180
  • and when I did it, I had people
  • 00:02:02.180 --> 00:02:04.170
  • leave our church over it.
  • 00:02:04.170 --> 00:02:07.090
  • It was easier for me to talk
  • 00:02:07.090 --> 00:02:08.250
  • about tithing than it was for me
  • 00:02:08.250 --> 00:02:11.070
  • to mess with someone's plate.
  • 00:02:11.070 --> 00:02:14.040
  • But the Bible does talk
  • 00:02:14.040 --> 00:02:15.140
  • about taking care
  • 00:02:15.140 --> 00:02:16.260
  • of our physical bodies.
  • 00:02:16.260 --> 00:02:17.280
  • I heard about this lady.
  • 00:02:17.280 --> 00:02:18.180
  • She walked up to this older
  • 00:02:18.180 --> 00:02:19.180
  • house, you know,
  • 00:02:19.180 --> 00:02:20.080
  • and there was a old guy,
  • 00:02:20.080 --> 00:02:21.210
  • and he was sitting in a
  • 00:02:21.210 --> 00:02:22.270
  • rocking chair,
  • 00:02:22.270 --> 00:02:23.220
  • rocking on the porch, you know.
  • 00:02:23.220 --> 00:02:25.050
  • And she walked up, she said,
  • 00:02:25.050 --> 00:02:26.000
  • "Look at you, all happy.
  • 00:02:26.000 --> 00:02:27.120
  • What's your key to being
  • 00:02:27.120 --> 00:02:28.170
  • so happy?"
  • 00:02:28.170 --> 00:02:29.100
  • And the old guy said, "You know,
  • 00:02:29.100 --> 00:02:30.210
  • I'd smoke three packs a day,
  • 00:02:30.210 --> 00:02:32.180
  • and I have at least one jug of
  • 00:02:32.180 --> 00:02:33.290
  • whiskey every week, and I eat
  • 00:02:33.290 --> 00:02:35.200
  • all the fried food I want."
  • 00:02:35.200 --> 00:02:37.000
  • She said, "Wow, that's crazy.
  • 00:02:37.000 --> 00:02:39.050
  • Well, how old are you?"
  • 00:02:39.050 --> 00:02:40.150
  • He said, "I'm 26."
  • 00:02:41.020 --> 00:02:44.020
  • See, that's the problem, is that
  • 00:02:44.020 --> 00:02:45.170
  • it's bad for you when you just
  • 00:02:45.170 --> 00:02:48.000
  • kind of do whatever you want
  • 00:02:48.000 --> 00:02:49.210
  • with your body.
  • 00:02:49.210 --> 00:02:50.290
  • God has a better way for us.
  • 00:02:50.290 --> 00:02:52.040
  • He wants us to learn to take
  • 00:02:52.040 --> 00:02:53.040
  • care of the temple.
  • 00:02:53.040 --> 00:02:55.040
  • This is the temple
  • 00:02:55.040 --> 00:02:56.200
  • of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:02:56.200 --> 00:02:57.210
  • We house God in our bodies,
  • 00:02:57.210 --> 00:03:00.140
  • so it matters that we learn
  • 00:03:00.140 --> 00:03:02.040
  • to take care of our bodies.
  • 00:03:02.040 --> 00:03:03.090
  • So today as I talk about it,
  • 00:03:03.090 --> 00:03:04.110
  • I just want to challenge you not
  • 00:03:04.110 --> 00:03:06.030
  • to blow this off, not to think,
  • 00:03:06.030 --> 00:03:07.010
  • "Oh, this is for someone else.
  • 00:03:07.010 --> 00:03:08.110
  • You know, I'm here to get close
  • 00:03:08.110 --> 00:03:09.030
  • to God, Pastor.
  • 00:03:09.030 --> 00:03:10.000
  • I'm not worried about that
  • 00:03:10.000 --> 00:03:10.210
  • physical stuff."
  • 00:03:10.210 --> 00:03:11.180
  • But if you feel that way, you
  • 00:03:11.180 --> 00:03:12.200
  • need to know what you have is
  • 00:03:12.200 --> 00:03:13.210
  • what's called a spiritual blind
  • 00:03:13.210 --> 00:03:14.270
  • spot, because the truth is that
  • 00:03:14.270 --> 00:03:17.220
  • our physical health affects
  • 00:03:17.220 --> 00:03:19.240
  • our spirituality,
  • 00:03:19.240 --> 00:03:21.190
  • and our spirituality affects
  • 00:03:21.190 --> 00:03:23.190
  • our physical health.
  • 00:03:23.190 --> 00:03:24.170
  • They actually go together.
  • 00:03:24.170 --> 00:03:26.110
  • So pull out your notes,
  • 00:03:26.110 --> 00:03:27.030
  • if you would today,
  • 00:03:27.030 --> 00:03:27.230
  • and let's talk about
  • 00:03:27.230 --> 00:03:28.130
  • Straight Out of Shape.
  • 00:03:28.130 --> 00:03:29.030
  • I want to challenge you to join
  • 00:03:29.030 --> 00:03:30.230
  • me in getting in better shape.
  • 00:03:30.230 --> 00:03:33.160
  • Turn to the person next to you,
  • 00:03:33.160 --> 00:03:34.060
  • and say, "You can do this."
  • 00:03:34.060 --> 00:03:35.010
  • Just let them right now,
  • 00:03:35.010 --> 00:03:36.160
  • "You can do this.
  • 00:03:36.160 --> 00:03:38.050
  • It's doable.
  • 00:03:38.050 --> 00:03:38.270
  • Don't freak out.
  • 00:03:38.270 --> 00:03:39.170
  • Don't run out.
  • 00:03:39.170 --> 00:03:40.090
  • You can do it."
  • 00:03:40.090 --> 00:03:41.240
  • Check out the mission statement
  • 00:03:41.240 --> 00:03:42.240
  • real quick.
  • 00:03:42.240 --> 00:03:43.140
  • We'll say our mission statement
  • 00:03:43.140 --> 00:03:44.040
  • together as a church
  • 00:03:44.040 --> 00:03:44.240
  • before we go any further.
  • 00:03:44.240 --> 00:03:45.130
  • Our mission is to take as many
  • 00:03:45.130 --> 00:03:47.190
  • people to heaven as we can
  • 00:03:47.190 --> 00:03:49.040
  • before we die, period.
  • 00:03:49.040 --> 00:03:51.040
  • That's what we're all about here
  • 00:03:51.040 --> 00:03:52.150
  • at Church Unlimited.
  • 00:03:52.150 --> 00:03:53.220
  • Look at the first verse
  • 00:03:53.220 --> 00:03:54.140
  • for the day.
  • 00:03:54.140 --> 00:03:55.040
  • It says in 1 Corinthians 6,
  • 00:03:55.040 --> 00:03:56.050
  • verse 20, it says, "Honor God
  • 00:03:56.050 --> 00:03:57.240
  • and bring glory to him
  • 00:03:57.240 --> 00:03:59.020
  • in your body."
  • 00:03:59.020 --> 00:04:00.190
  • Now just think about this
  • 00:04:00.190 --> 00:04:02.020
  • last week.
  • 00:04:02.020 --> 00:04:02.250
  • What'd you do with your body
  • 00:04:02.250 --> 00:04:04.200
  • that bought glory to God?
  • 00:04:04.200 --> 00:04:05.210
  • Did you honor him
  • 00:04:05.210 --> 00:04:06.150
  • by what you ate?
  • 00:04:06.150 --> 00:04:07.200
  • Did you honor him by exercising?
  • 00:04:07.200 --> 00:04:09.120
  • Did you honor him by taking care
  • 00:04:09.120 --> 00:04:10.130
  • of yourself?
  • 00:04:10.130 --> 00:04:11.020
  • Or if you look back at last
  • 00:04:11.020 --> 00:04:12.080
  • week, would you kind of go, "I
  • 00:04:12.080 --> 00:04:14.180
  • don't know about that," right?
  • 00:04:14.180 --> 00:04:15.280
  • And so it's just so easy
  • 00:04:15.280 --> 00:04:17.210
  • to kind of blow this part
  • 00:04:17.210 --> 00:04:19.120
  • of our lives off,
  • 00:04:19.120 --> 00:04:20.210
  • but God has a better way for us.
  • 00:04:20.210 --> 00:04:23.080
  • Check out this Scripture.
  • 00:04:23.080 --> 00:04:23.280
  • It says in 1 Thessalonians 4,
  • 00:04:23.280 --> 00:04:25.020
  • verse 4, "You should learn to
  • 00:04:25.020 --> 00:04:26.090
  • control in your own body in a
  • 00:04:26.090 --> 00:04:27.260
  • way that is holy and honorable."
  • 00:04:27.260 --> 00:04:29.150
  • Now, we know that this verse is
  • 00:04:29.150 --> 00:04:31.050
  • Obviously, he's talking also,
  • 00:04:33.060 --> 00:04:33.240
  • in this context,
  • 00:04:33.240 --> 00:04:34.200
  • about sexual immorality,
  • 00:04:34.200 --> 00:04:35.290
  • learn to control our bodies.
  • 00:04:35.290 --> 00:04:37.110
  • But maybe you've never thought
  • 00:04:37.110 --> 00:04:38.110
  • about it, but also part
  • 00:04:38.110 --> 00:04:39.110
  • of controlling your body
  • 00:04:39.110 --> 00:04:40.030
  • is controlling how you take care
  • 00:04:40.030 --> 00:04:42.000
  • of your health.
  • 00:04:42.000 --> 00:04:43.070
  • It's a big deal that we take
  • 00:04:43.070 --> 00:04:44.290
  • care of our health.
  • 00:04:44.290 --> 00:04:45.250
  • Now, we're not talking about
  • 00:04:45.250 --> 00:04:46.150
  • worshipping your body.
  • 00:04:46.150 --> 00:04:47.130
  • We're not talking about
  • 00:04:47.130 --> 00:04:48.130
  • perfecting your body.
  • 00:04:48.130 --> 00:04:49.290
  • We're talking about being able
  • 00:04:49.290 --> 00:04:51.150
  • to worship the Lord for a long,
  • 00:04:51.150 --> 00:04:53.270
  • healthy life.
  • 00:04:53.270 --> 00:04:54.220
  • That's what we're talking
  • 00:04:54.220 --> 00:04:56.040
  • about today.
  • 00:04:56.040 --> 00:04:56.240
  • So please understand, this
  • 00:04:56.240 --> 00:04:57.200
  • isn't some kind of perfection
  • 00:04:57.200 --> 00:04:59.000
  • we're shooting for.
  • 00:04:59.000 --> 00:05:00.140
  • Instead, we're saying, "God help
  • 00:05:00.140 --> 00:05:01.240
  • me to be healthy at the age
  • 00:05:01.240 --> 00:05:03.240
  • and stage that I'm in."
  • 00:05:03.240 --> 00:05:05.220
  • That's what we're talking about.
  • 00:05:05.220 --> 00:05:07.020
  • And frankly, it's not even about
  • 00:05:07.020 --> 00:05:08.120
  • really looking good.
  • 00:05:08.120 --> 00:05:09.020
  • It's about feeling good.
  • 00:05:09.020 --> 00:05:09.220
  • It's about having the energy
  • 00:05:09.220 --> 00:05:11.010
  • that you need to do
  • 00:05:11.010 --> 00:05:12.000
  • Look at the next Scripture.
  • 00:05:14.110 --> 00:05:15.090
  • It says this, Romans 12:1,
  • 00:05:15.090 --> 00:05:16.260
  • it says, "Make a decisive
  • 00:05:16.260 --> 00:05:18.210
  • dedication of your bodies
  • 00:05:18.210 --> 00:05:20.240
  • as a living sacrifice, devoted
  • 00:05:20.240 --> 00:05:23.040
  • and well-pleasing to God."
  • 00:05:23.040 --> 00:05:25.030
  • First step that I want to
  • 00:05:25.030 --> 00:05:26.070
  • challenge you to do.
  • 00:05:26.070 --> 00:05:27.010
  • This is so simple,
  • 00:05:27.010 --> 00:05:28.050
  • yet it's a big deal,
  • 00:05:28.050 --> 00:05:28.250
  • and most of us are not doing it.
  • 00:05:28.250 --> 00:05:30.120
  • I'm including myself
  • 00:05:30.120 --> 00:05:31.040
  • in this grouping.
  • 00:05:31.040 --> 00:05:32.030
  • Number one is this: maintain
  • 00:05:32.030 --> 00:05:34.100
  • your ideal body weight.
  • 00:05:34.100 --> 00:05:37.080
  • Maintain your ideal body weight.
  • 00:05:37.080 --> 00:05:38.180
  • And that's different
  • 00:05:38.180 --> 00:05:39.080
  • for everyone.
  • 00:05:39.080 --> 00:05:39.290
  • I'm not here to determine
  • 00:05:39.290 --> 00:05:40.190
  • what that is for you.
  • 00:05:40.190 --> 00:05:41.090
  • But if you just Google this,
  • 00:05:41.090 --> 00:05:42.290
  • if you go on any basic health
  • 00:05:42.290 --> 00:05:45.110
  • website, there are all kinds
  • 00:05:45.110 --> 00:05:47.000
  • of charts that can tell you,
  • 00:05:47.000 --> 00:05:48.040
  • based upon your size,
  • 00:05:48.040 --> 00:05:50.020
  • based upon your age.
  • 00:05:50.020 --> 00:05:50.260
  • In other words,
  • 00:05:50.260 --> 00:05:51.160
  • what's your height?
  • 00:05:51.160 --> 00:05:52.110
  • They can tell you kind of where
  • 00:05:52.110 --> 00:05:53.120
  • your weight should be, right.
  • 00:05:53.120 --> 00:05:55.180
  • What your waist size should
  • 00:05:55.180 --> 00:05:56.260
  • typically be for a man or a
  • 00:05:56.260 --> 00:05:58.150
  • woman, and what your weight
  • 00:05:58.150 --> 00:05:59.150
  • should be for a man or woman.
  • 00:05:59.150 --> 00:06:00.200
  • Some of you right now are
  • 00:06:00.200 --> 00:06:01.100
  • pushing back already in your
  • 00:06:01.100 --> 00:06:02.050
  • mind, thinking, "You know what,
  • 00:06:02.050 --> 00:06:03.000
  • this is not spiritual, Pastor.
  • 00:06:03.000 --> 00:06:04.200
  • This is just about looking good,
  • 00:06:04.200 --> 00:06:06.000
  • and that's not right,
  • 00:06:06.000 --> 00:06:06.200
  • and that's just so shallow.
  • 00:06:06.200 --> 00:06:07.120
  • I can't believe you're focused
  • 00:06:07.120 --> 00:06:08.080
  • on the physical body today.
  • 00:06:08.080 --> 00:06:09.060
  • I want to get spiritual
  • 00:06:09.060 --> 00:06:10.020
  • and not physical."
  • 00:06:10.020 --> 00:06:10.230
  • Well, let me ask you something.
  • 00:06:10.230 --> 00:06:11.230
  • What do you think the greatest
  • 00:06:11.230 --> 00:06:12.230
  • spiritual move ever made
  • 00:06:12.230 --> 00:06:13.230
  • in the entire universe was?
  • 00:06:13.230 --> 00:06:15.060
  • It's when Jesus did a physical
  • 00:06:15.060 --> 00:06:17.230
  • act and gave his physical body
  • 00:06:20.070 --> 00:06:23.070
  • for you and me on a cross.
  • 00:06:23.130 --> 00:06:26.130
  • So apparently, physical
  • 00:06:26.130 --> 00:06:28.150
  • can be extremely spiritual.
  • 00:06:28.150 --> 00:06:31.120
  • So please do not disconnect
  • 00:06:31.120 --> 00:06:33.150
  • these dots.
  • 00:06:33.150 --> 00:06:34.270
  • In fact, in a little while,
  • 00:06:34.270 --> 00:06:36.040
  • I'm going to challenge
  • 00:06:36.040 --> 00:06:36.240
  • to go on a diet with me.
  • 00:06:36.240 --> 00:06:38.010
  • I'm serious.
  • 00:06:38.010 --> 00:06:39.140
  • And see if you don't, for three
  • 00:06:39.140 --> 00:06:40.270
  • days cut out all carbs
  • 00:06:40.270 --> 00:06:42.090
  • and sugar, and see if you're not
  • 00:06:42.090 --> 00:06:43.260
  • crying out to your God
  • 00:06:43.260 --> 00:06:45.120
  • in about three days.
  • 00:06:45.140 --> 00:06:48.140
  • Trust me.
  • 00:06:48.140 --> 00:06:50.020
  • Because we don't even realize
  • 00:06:50.020 --> 00:06:51.150
  • how addicted we are to eating
  • 00:06:51.150 --> 00:06:53.190
  • the wrong stuff.
  • 00:06:53.190 --> 00:06:55.150
  • It's really a big deal.
  • 00:06:55.150 --> 00:06:56.200
  • Look at the next Scripture.
  • 00:06:56.200 --> 00:06:57.220
  • It says in 1 Corinthians 6,
  • 00:06:57.220 --> 00:06:59.000
  • verse 12, it says,
  • 00:06:59.000 --> 00:06:59.250
  • "Not everything is beneficial.
  • 00:06:59.250 --> 00:07:01.180
  • I will not be mastered
  • 00:07:01.180 --> 00:07:02.150
  • by anything.
  • 00:07:02.150 --> 00:07:03.110
  • Food for the stomach and stomach
  • 00:07:03.110 --> 00:07:04.230
  • for food, and God will destroy
  • 00:07:04.230 --> 00:07:06.030
  • them both."
  • 00:07:06.030 --> 00:07:06.230
  • You know, not everything you can
  • 00:07:06.230 --> 00:07:08.050
  • eat you should eat.
  • 00:07:08.050 --> 00:07:10.000
  • I mean, really, that's what the
  • 00:07:10.000 --> 00:07:10.210
  • Scripture's telling us.
  • 00:07:10.210 --> 00:07:11.110
  • Just because you can eat it
  • 00:07:11.110 --> 00:07:12.100
  • doesn't mean you should eat it.
  • 00:07:12.100 --> 00:07:13.280
  • Doesn't make it beneficial,
  • 00:07:13.280 --> 00:07:15.250
  • you know.
  • 00:07:15.250 --> 00:07:16.150
  • I, for years, did the whole
  • 00:07:16.150 --> 00:07:18.150
  • thing where I would just eat as
  • 00:07:18.150 --> 00:07:19.170
  • little calories as I could, but
  • 00:07:19.170 --> 00:07:21.130
  • it never dawned on me that I was
  • 00:07:21.130 --> 00:07:22.210
  • still eating wasn't beneficial.
  • 00:07:22.210 --> 00:07:24.110
  • It didn't help my body.
  • 00:07:24.110 --> 00:07:26.080
  • And that's when I started
  • 00:07:26.080 --> 00:07:27.150
  • getting a little bit better
  • 00:07:27.150 --> 00:07:28.100
  • education, to have some people
  • 00:07:28.100 --> 00:07:29.190
  • enter my life saying, you know,
  • 00:07:29.190 --> 00:07:30.290
  • what is the nutritional value?
  • 00:07:30.290 --> 00:07:32.260
  • Just because you're losing
  • 00:07:32.260 --> 00:07:33.250
  • weight, you're just shriveling
  • 00:07:33.250 --> 00:07:35.170
  • up, but there's nothing going in
  • 00:07:35.170 --> 00:07:36.240
  • you that's helping your body.
  • 00:07:36.240 --> 00:07:39.000
  • I was like, "Wow.
  • 00:07:39.000 --> 00:07:39.260
  • I never thought of it that way."
  • 00:07:39.260 --> 00:07:41.080
  • To me, it was all just
  • 00:07:41.080 --> 00:07:41.280
  • losing weight.
  • 00:07:41.280 --> 00:07:43.020
  • And he's like, "Yeah, but sure,
  • 00:07:43.020 --> 00:07:44.030
  • okay, there's less of you,
  • 00:07:44.030 --> 00:07:45.050
  • but there's no vitality,
  • 00:07:45.050 --> 00:07:46.210
  • because there's no benefit
  • 00:07:46.210 --> 00:07:49.080
  • to what you're eating."
  • 00:07:49.080 --> 00:07:51.080
  • So what are you eating that's
  • 00:07:51.080 --> 00:07:52.180
  • beneficial to your body, to
  • 00:07:52.180 --> 00:07:55.170
  • strengthen who you are?"
  • 00:07:55.170 --> 00:07:56.190
  • Ephesians 5:18 says, "Do not be
  • 00:07:56.190 --> 00:07:58.030
  • drunk with wine,
  • 00:07:58.030 --> 00:07:59.010
  • which will ruin you,
  • 00:07:59.010 --> 00:07:59.210
  • but be filled with the Spirit."
  • 00:07:59.210 --> 00:08:01.160
  • Now, I don't want to make this
  • 00:08:01.160 --> 00:08:02.090
  • whole message about alcohol,
  • 00:08:02.090 --> 00:08:03.120
  • but I will tell you, just from a
  • 00:08:03.120 --> 00:08:04.220
  • health perspective alone,
  • 00:08:04.220 --> 00:08:05.240
  • I don't know
  • 00:08:07.250 --> 00:08:08.140
  • if you realize that.
  • 00:08:08.140 --> 00:08:09.120
  • Very damaging to you.
  • 00:08:09.120 --> 00:08:10.260
  • Now, the Bible does allow
  • 00:08:10.260 --> 00:08:12.080
  • for you to drink a little bit of
  • 00:08:12.080 --> 00:08:14.190
  • wine, a little alcohol, but you
  • 00:08:14.190 --> 00:08:16.070
  • shouldn't be getting drunk.
  • 00:08:16.070 --> 00:08:17.130
  • I still don't recommend it.
  • 00:08:17.130 --> 00:08:19.130
  • I still don't think it's really
  • 00:08:19.130 --> 00:08:20.130
  • something that you should be
  • 00:08:20.130 --> 00:08:21.100
  • doing if you can avoid it, but
  • 00:08:21.100 --> 00:08:23.090
  • I do understand some people have
  • 00:08:23.090 --> 00:08:24.190
  • a little bit of alcohol at night
  • 00:08:24.190 --> 00:08:26.110
  • to relieve them, to relax them,
  • 00:08:26.110 --> 00:08:27.230
  • a little bit of wine
  • 00:08:27.230 --> 00:08:28.130
  • or something.
  • 00:08:28.130 --> 00:08:29.030
  • Okay, I get that.
  • 00:08:29.030 --> 00:08:29.230
  • But my point is this: I highly
  • 00:08:29.230 --> 00:08:31.090
  • recommend a mass reduction of
  • 00:08:31.090 --> 00:08:33.180
  • it, if not elimination,
  • 00:08:33.180 --> 00:08:35.120
  • because it's just not healthy
  • 00:08:35.120 --> 00:08:36.170
  • for you, guys.
  • 00:08:36.170 --> 00:08:37.220
  • It just isn't.
  • 00:08:37.220 --> 00:08:39.140
  • Daniel 1 has an incredible set
  • 00:08:39.140 --> 00:08:41.100
  • of Scripture.
  • 00:08:41.100 --> 00:08:42.090
  • Daniel was a guy that,
  • 00:08:42.090 --> 00:08:43.260
  • basically, Israel was overrun
  • 00:08:43.260 --> 00:08:45.150
  • by another country.
  • 00:08:45.150 --> 00:08:46.200
  • This king comes in, cherry picks
  • 00:08:46.200 --> 00:08:48.070
  • a top guy, his top young men,
  • 00:08:48.070 --> 00:08:49.270
  • and says, "I want to train all
  • 00:08:49.270 --> 00:08:50.280
  • these guys in our way
  • 00:08:50.280 --> 00:08:52.160
  • of doing things."
  • 00:08:52.160 --> 00:08:53.090
  • So they tried to get them to
  • 00:08:53.090 --> 00:08:54.100
  • worship their gods and to do
  • 00:08:54.100 --> 00:08:55.210
  • their customs, and Daniel was
  • 00:08:55.210 --> 00:08:56.260
  • like, "I'll do your customs, but
  • 00:08:56.260 --> 00:08:58.070
  • I'm gonna worship by God, okay.
  • 00:08:58.070 --> 00:08:59.120
  • So I'm not doing that, okay.
  • 00:08:59.120 --> 00:09:01.030
  • But I'll learn your stuff, but
  • 00:09:01.030 --> 00:09:02.120
  • I'm gonna worship my God."
  • 00:09:02.120 --> 00:09:03.240
  • The process is that the king
  • 00:09:03.240 --> 00:09:05.000
  • had all these young men eating
  • 00:09:05.000 --> 00:09:05.290
  • at his table.
  • 00:09:05.290 --> 00:09:07.000
  • Well, Daniel and his buddies
  • 00:09:07.000 --> 00:09:08.210
  • realized that this food was
  • 00:09:08.210 --> 00:09:09.210
  • terrible for them, and
  • 00:09:09.210 --> 00:09:10.240
  • they said, "You know, this is
  • 00:09:10.240 --> 00:09:11.150
  • dishonoring of God to eat this
  • 00:09:11.150 --> 00:09:12.230
  • food, first of all, because it's
  • 00:09:12.230 --> 00:09:14.140
  • not taking care of our bodies.
  • 00:09:14.140 --> 00:09:15.040
  • It's just not honoring
  • 00:09:15.040 --> 00:09:15.240
  • to the Lord.
  • 00:09:15.240 --> 00:09:16.140
  • And frankly, we don't want to
  • 00:09:16.140 --> 00:09:17.040
  • eat it."
  • 00:09:17.040 --> 00:09:17.240
  • So he went to the chef,
  • 00:09:17.240 --> 00:09:18.140
  • the king chef, and he said,
  • 00:09:18.140 --> 00:09:19.040
  • "Hey, if it's okay with you,
  • 00:09:19.040 --> 00:09:19.290
  • we'd like to not eat this food.
  • 00:09:19.290 --> 00:09:20.290
  • Can you instead just serve us
  • 00:09:20.290 --> 00:09:22.020
  • a different diet,
  • 00:09:22.020 --> 00:09:22.290
  • something healthier?"
  • 00:09:22.290 --> 00:09:23.210
  • And the chef said, "Man, the
  • 00:09:23.210 --> 00:09:24.210
  • king will kill me if you don't
  • 00:09:24.210 --> 00:09:25.170
  • look good, because it's my job
  • 00:09:25.170 --> 00:09:26.270
  • to bulk you guys up
  • 00:09:26.270 --> 00:09:27.250
  • and to have you in good shape."
  • 00:09:27.250 --> 00:09:29.040
  • And Daniel just smiled and said,
  • 00:09:29.040 --> 00:09:30.160
  • "I'll tell you what.
  • 00:09:30.160 --> 00:09:31.160
  • Give me a test run.
  • 00:09:31.160 --> 00:09:32.230
  • Just see if it doesn't work."
  • 00:09:32.230 --> 00:09:34.040
  • And so this is what he said in
  • 00:09:34.040 --> 00:09:34.290
  • "Please test your servants
  • 00:09:37.000 --> 00:09:37.230
  • for ten days.
  • 00:09:37.230 --> 00:09:39.040
  • Give us nothing but vegetables
  • 00:09:39.040 --> 00:09:41.040
  • to eat and water to drink, then
  • 00:09:41.040 --> 00:09:43.200
  • compare our appearance with that
  • 00:09:43.200 --> 00:09:45.000
  • of the young men who eat
  • 00:09:45.000 --> 00:09:46.050
  • the royal food,
  • 00:09:46.050 --> 00:09:46.270
  • and treat your servants
  • 00:09:46.270 --> 00:09:47.190
  • in accordance
  • 00:09:47.190 --> 00:09:48.090
  • with what you see."
  • 00:09:48.090 --> 00:09:49.010
  • So he agreed to this and tested
  • 00:09:49.010 --> 00:09:50.150
  • them for ten days.
  • 00:09:50.150 --> 00:09:51.180
  • At the end of the ten days,
  • 00:09:51.180 --> 00:09:52.220
  • they looked healthier and better
  • 00:09:52.220 --> 00:09:54.030
  • nourished than any of the young
  • 00:09:54.030 --> 00:09:55.130
  • men who ate the royal food.
  • 00:09:55.130 --> 00:09:57.050
  • So all he had was vegetables
  • 00:09:59.060 --> 00:10:01.140
  • and water.
  • 00:10:01.140 --> 00:10:03.080
  • Now, some of you right now are
  • 00:10:03.080 --> 00:10:04.060
  • ready to throw your outline at
  • 00:10:04.060 --> 00:10:05.040
  • me, and run out of this room.
  • 00:10:05.040 --> 00:10:07.090
  • Please do not do that.
  • 00:10:07.090 --> 00:10:09.010
  • But I want to tell you something
  • 00:10:09.010 --> 00:10:10.190
  • that'll shock you.
  • 00:10:10.190 --> 00:10:11.090
  • You can get enough nutrients
  • 00:10:11.090 --> 00:10:12.200
  • in that alone.
  • 00:10:12.200 --> 00:10:13.100
  • I don't recommend this only
  • 00:10:13.100 --> 00:10:14.260
  • for the rest of your life.
  • 00:10:14.260 --> 00:10:16.170
  • He said, "Test me in this
  • 00:10:16.170 --> 00:10:17.180
  • for ten days."
  • 00:10:17.180 --> 00:10:18.090
  • He didn't say, "I'm going to do
  • 00:10:18.090 --> 00:10:19.160
  • this for the rest of my life."
  • 00:10:19.160 --> 00:10:20.060
  • I'm sure Daniel and his homies
  • 00:10:20.060 --> 00:10:21.230
  • had meat occasionally too, okay.
  • 00:10:21.240 --> 00:10:24.240
  • But he said, "Look, we want to
  • 00:10:24.240 --> 00:10:25.250
  • be in great shape.
  • 00:10:25.250 --> 00:10:26.210
  • You really want us to look good?
  • 00:10:26.210 --> 00:10:28.020
  • We're just going to do
  • 00:10:28.020 --> 00:10:28.220
  • vegetables and water only
  • 00:10:28.220 --> 00:10:29.120
  • for ten days."
  • 00:10:29.120 --> 00:10:30.220
  • How many understand the fact
  • 00:10:30.220 --> 00:10:32.130
  • that you can go out and pig out
  • 00:10:32.130 --> 00:10:33.180
  • on a meal, and especially if
  • 00:10:33.180 --> 00:10:34.180
  • you're a guy, you can gain about
  • 00:10:34.180 --> 00:10:35.290
  • 5 pounds in 2 days.
  • 00:10:35.290 --> 00:10:37.020
  • How many of you guys know what
  • 00:10:37.020 --> 00:10:37.220
  • I'm talking about?
  • 00:10:37.220 --> 00:10:38.120
  • I've done it.
  • 00:10:38.120 --> 00:10:39.030
  • I can easily do that.
  • 00:10:39.030 --> 00:10:39.230
  • I can do it in one meal.
  • 00:10:39.230 --> 00:10:40.220
  • I'm telling you, right.
  • 00:10:40.220 --> 00:10:42.050
  • Here's the great thing
  • 00:10:42.050 --> 00:10:43.010
  • about our bodies.
  • 00:10:43.010 --> 00:10:43.210
  • We can gain it that face, right.
  • 00:10:43.210 --> 00:10:45.010
  • Isn't that amazing, how fast you
  • 00:10:45.010 --> 00:10:46.100
  • can put on weight?
  • 00:10:46.100 --> 00:10:47.000
  • I got some great news for you:
  • 00:10:47.000 --> 00:10:48.000
  • you can take it off
  • 00:10:48.000 --> 00:10:49.020
  • Now think about that.
  • 00:10:51.030 --> 00:10:51.280
  • "You're telling me, Pastor, that
  • 00:10:51.280 --> 00:10:53.080
  • as a dude, I could lose 5
  • 00:10:53.080 --> 00:10:54.100
  • pounds in 2 days?"
  • 00:10:54.100 --> 00:10:55.010
  • Absolutely.
  • 00:10:55.010 --> 00:10:55.240
  • Some of you guys will do 10
  • 00:10:55.240 --> 00:10:56.210
  • in 2 days.
  • 00:10:56.210 --> 00:10:57.240
  • I'm serious.
  • 00:10:57.240 --> 00:10:58.140
  • Depending upon your size.
  • 00:10:58.140 --> 00:11:00.120
  • Now, ladies typically don't lose
  • 00:11:00.120 --> 00:11:01.220
  • it as fast, but you don't gain
  • 00:11:01.220 --> 00:11:03.030
  • it as fast either,
  • 00:11:03.030 --> 00:11:03.270
  • and so that's the good news.
  • 00:11:03.270 --> 00:11:05.240
  • Some of the ladies are like,
  • 00:11:05.240 --> 00:11:06.240
  • "You don't know me Pastor."
  • 00:11:06.240 --> 00:11:07.260
  • Well, okay.
  • 00:11:07.260 --> 00:11:09.260
  • But I will tell you, as fast as
  • 00:11:09.260 --> 00:11:11.040
  • you can go up is as fast
  • 00:11:11.040 --> 00:11:11.260
  • as you can go down.
  • 00:11:11.260 --> 00:11:12.160
  • Now, as you get older, it's a
  • 00:11:12.160 --> 00:11:13.080
  • little harder to come down.
  • 00:11:13.080 --> 00:11:14.150
  • But if you were to remove all of
  • 00:11:14.150 --> 00:11:17.110
  • the stuff you're eating and just
  • 00:11:17.110 --> 00:11:18.220
  • have vegetables and water,
  • 00:11:18.220 --> 00:11:19.180
  • I promise you, you will shed
  • 00:11:19.180 --> 00:11:21.180
  • weight, and you're going to feel
  • 00:11:21.180 --> 00:11:23.130
  • better too.
  • 00:11:23.130 --> 00:11:24.180
  • Now, if you do this, I'm just
  • 00:11:24.180 --> 00:11:25.180
  • going to warn you now, the first
  • 00:11:25.180 --> 00:11:26.290
  • couple days, you're going to
  • 00:11:26.290 --> 00:11:27.190
  • need some Tylenol, because your
  • 00:11:27.190 --> 00:11:28.260
  • head's going to hurt, because
  • 00:11:28.260 --> 00:11:29.180
  • you're used to all those carbs
  • 00:11:29.180 --> 00:11:30.160
  • and all that caffeine.
  • 00:11:30.160 --> 00:11:32.150
  • But about day three,
  • 00:11:32.150 --> 00:11:34.150
  • this is a promise, not from me,
  • 00:11:34.150 --> 00:11:35.230
  • but our bodies do this.
  • 00:11:35.230 --> 00:11:36.270
  • About day three,
  • 00:11:36.270 --> 00:11:37.170
  • your body's going to go
  • 00:11:37.170 --> 00:11:38.070
  • into what's called ketosis.
  • 00:11:38.070 --> 00:11:39.240
  • It's where your body kicks in,
  • 00:11:39.240 --> 00:11:40.240
  • it knows,
  • 00:11:40.240 --> 00:11:41.150
  • "Oh, I know what we're doing."
  • 00:11:41.150 --> 00:11:42.060
  • Then your body realizes
  • 00:11:42.060 --> 00:11:44.030
  • what's going on.
  • 00:11:44.030 --> 00:11:44.260
  • It's no longer hungering for all
  • 00:11:44.260 --> 00:11:46.040
  • those carbs
  • 00:11:46.040 --> 00:11:47.010
  • and starts to instead
  • 00:11:47.010 --> 00:11:48.030
  • -- here's what your body does.
  • 00:11:48.030 --> 00:11:48.280
  • Now, you know why
  • 00:11:48.280 --> 00:11:49.180
  • you gain weight?
  • 00:11:49.180 --> 00:11:50.080
  • Because you're shoving so much
  • 00:11:50.080 --> 00:11:50.280
  • crap in your mouth, okay.
  • 00:11:50.280 --> 00:11:52.240
  • All this bad stuff, right.
  • 00:11:52.240 --> 00:11:53.280
  • "Oh, Twinkie.
  • 00:11:53.280 --> 00:11:54.190
  • That's looks great.
  • 00:11:54.190 --> 00:11:55.090
  • Oh, chips and hot sauce.
  • 00:11:55.090 --> 00:11:56.050
  • Oh, a tamale.
  • 00:11:56.050 --> 00:11:56.250
  • Oh yeah, let's just" -- and
  • 00:11:56.250 --> 00:11:57.150
  • you're just boom, boom, boom.
  • 00:11:57.150 --> 00:11:58.110
  • And your body's going, "Oh, what
  • 00:11:58.110 --> 00:11:59.210
  • do we do with all this?"
  • 00:11:59.210 --> 00:12:00.130
  • And so it's trying to digest
  • 00:12:00.130 --> 00:12:01.100
  • as much as it can,
  • 00:12:01.100 --> 00:12:02.010
  • and as it gets overloaded,
  • 00:12:02.010 --> 00:12:03.180
  • it just takes some of it,
  • 00:12:03.180 --> 00:12:04.130
  • and just say, "Let's store that.
  • 00:12:04.130 --> 00:12:05.240
  • We'll store that.
  • 00:12:05.240 --> 00:12:06.140
  • Get to that later.
  • 00:12:06.140 --> 00:12:07.040
  • Let's keep -- let's digest,
  • 00:12:07.040 --> 00:12:08.090
  • digest.
  • 00:12:08.090 --> 00:12:08.290
  • We'll store some more.
  • 00:12:08.290 --> 00:12:09.190
  • Digest.
  • 00:12:09.190 --> 00:12:10.090
  • Store some more."
  • 00:12:10.090 --> 00:12:10.290
  • And this is how you get a little
  • 00:12:10.290 --> 00:12:12.090
  • tire around your waist.
  • 00:12:12.090 --> 00:12:12.290
  • It's because your body's storing
  • 00:12:12.290 --> 00:12:14.100
  • up, because you're putting so
  • 00:12:14.100 --> 00:12:15.000
  • much in so fast, your body
  • 00:12:15.000 --> 00:12:15.200
  • can't process it that fast.
  • 00:12:15.200 --> 00:12:16.250
  • When you put in your body what
  • 00:12:18.130 --> 00:12:21.130
  • the Creator made for the created
  • 00:12:21.130 --> 00:12:24.120
  • to eat, it is so efficient that
  • 00:12:25.260 --> 00:12:28.260
  • your body goes,
  • 00:12:28.260 --> 00:12:29.180
  • "Oh, tomatoes?
  • 00:12:29.180 --> 00:12:30.190
  • This is easy.
  • 00:12:30.190 --> 00:12:32.040
  • Cabbage, lettuce?
  • 00:12:32.040 --> 00:12:34.120
  • This is simple.
  • 00:12:34.120 --> 00:12:35.020
  • Broccoli?
  • 00:12:35.020 --> 00:12:35.220
  • No problem."
  • 00:12:35.220 --> 00:12:36.290
  • Boom, just runs right through
  • 00:12:36.290 --> 00:12:38.000
  • you, like nothing.
  • 00:12:38.000 --> 00:12:38.290
  • First of all,
  • 00:12:38.290 --> 00:12:39.190
  • most of that stuff is water.
  • 00:12:39.190 --> 00:12:40.110
  • Did you know that?
  • 00:12:40.110 --> 00:12:41.010
  • So it's just going through you.
  • 00:12:41.010 --> 00:12:42.100
  • And now your body goes,
  • 00:12:42.100 --> 00:12:43.030
  • "Oh, we got time.
  • 00:12:43.030 --> 00:12:43.240
  • Let's go and get some of the
  • 00:12:43.240 --> 00:12:44.210
  • stuff on the side.
  • 00:12:44.210 --> 00:12:45.100
  • We'll get rid
  • 00:12:45.100 --> 00:12:46.000
  • of all this stuff too."
  • 00:12:46.000 --> 00:12:46.280
  • And suddenly, guess what?
  • 00:12:46.280 --> 00:12:48.010
  • You are just flushing fat right
  • 00:12:48.010 --> 00:12:49.280
  • off your body.
  • 00:12:49.280 --> 00:12:51.190
  • If you do this for ten days, you
  • 00:12:51.190 --> 00:12:53.010
  • will literally look different
  • 00:12:53.010 --> 00:12:55.130
  • when people see you on day ten.
  • 00:12:55.130 --> 00:12:56.160
  • People are gonna be going,
  • 00:12:56.160 --> 00:12:57.130
  • "Well, girl, what are you
  • 00:12:57.130 --> 00:12:58.040
  • doing?"
  • 00:12:58.040 --> 00:12:58.240
  • They're gonna be going,
  • 00:12:58.240 --> 00:12:59.190
  • "Hey dude, what are you doing?
  • 00:12:59.190 --> 00:13:00.150
  • Man, wow.
  • 00:13:00.150 --> 00:13:01.050
  • That's unbelievable."
  • 00:13:01.050 --> 00:13:01.250
  • "I'm just doing what
  • 00:13:01.250 --> 00:13:02.250
  • Daniel did."
  • 00:13:02.250 --> 00:13:04.180
  • I'm going to do this
  • 00:13:04.180 --> 00:13:05.080
  • for ten days.
  • 00:13:05.080 --> 00:13:06.020
  • I want to challenge you
  • 00:13:06.020 --> 00:13:06.220
  • to join me.
  • 00:13:06.220 --> 00:13:07.120
  • Then day 11, I'm going to add
  • 00:13:07.120 --> 00:13:08.190
  • some lean meats with it.
  • 00:13:08.190 --> 00:13:09.240
  • So I'm going to go ten straight
  • 00:13:09.240 --> 00:13:11.000
  • days, and add some lean meats,
  • 00:13:11.000 --> 00:13:12.010
  • and I'm going to go
  • 00:13:12.010 --> 00:13:12.210
  • for 30 straight days.
  • 00:13:12.210 --> 00:13:13.140
  • I want to challenge you
  • 00:13:13.140 --> 00:13:14.040
  • to join me in this.
  • 00:13:14.040 --> 00:13:15.010
  • Get it all in today.
  • 00:13:15.010 --> 00:13:15.220
  • Get your favorite meal in today
  • 00:13:15.220 --> 00:13:16.240
  • that you're going to be dying
  • 00:13:16.240 --> 00:13:17.160
  • for in three days.
  • 00:13:17.160 --> 00:13:18.060
  • Get it in now, and say,
  • 00:13:18.060 --> 00:13:19.150
  • "Okay, I can do this."
  • 00:13:19.150 --> 00:13:20.100
  • And start tomorrow morning.
  • 00:13:20.100 --> 00:13:21.100
  • Boom, we all start.
  • 00:13:21.100 --> 00:13:22.220
  • You may want to go on your
  • 00:13:22.220 --> 00:13:23.170
  • social media
  • 00:13:23.170 --> 00:13:24.070
  • and just put it out there.
  • 00:13:24.070 --> 00:13:24.270
  • "Hey, I'm doing this.
  • 00:13:24.270 --> 00:13:25.250
  • Who wants to join me?"
  • 00:13:25.250 --> 00:13:28.000
  • You'll get some takers.
  • 00:13:28.000 --> 00:13:28.280
  • And so number two,
  • 00:13:28.280 --> 00:13:30.110
  • learn to eat clean
  • 00:13:30.110 --> 00:13:31.280
  • and drink water.
  • 00:13:31.280 --> 00:13:33.070
  • I know some of you are going to
  • 00:13:33.070 --> 00:13:34.060
  • be dying, going, "Oh, can I
  • 00:13:34.060 --> 00:13:35.060
  • have a little coffee?"
  • 00:13:35.060 --> 00:13:36.000
  • Sure, get one cup of coffee.
  • 00:13:36.000 --> 00:13:38.210
  • One soda if you need it, but
  • 00:13:38.210 --> 00:13:40.040
  • let's not -- you know, if you
  • 00:13:40.040 --> 00:13:41.100
  • keep that habit up, if you don't
  • 00:13:41.100 --> 00:13:42.280
  • change anything, you're not
  • 00:13:42.280 --> 00:13:44.000
  • going to change anything.
  • 00:13:44.000 --> 00:13:46.050
  • So you gotta be willing to make
  • 00:13:46.050 --> 00:13:46.290
  • the changes.
  • 00:13:46.290 --> 00:13:47.190
  • But it really will make a huge,
  • 00:13:47.190 --> 00:13:50.020
  • huge impact on your health.
  • 00:13:50.020 --> 00:13:52.120
  • It really, really will.
  • 00:13:52.120 --> 00:13:53.020
  • I was struggling with losing
  • 00:13:53.020 --> 00:13:54.110
  • some weight one time, and I was
  • 00:13:54.110 --> 00:13:55.070
  • talking to a trainer, and --
  • 00:13:55.070 --> 00:13:56.180
  • talking to my trainer, actually,
  • 00:13:56.180 --> 00:13:58.010
  • because this year I did
  • 00:13:58.010 --> 00:13:58.210
  • something different I've never
  • 00:13:58.210 --> 00:13:59.140
  • done before.
  • 00:13:59.140 --> 00:14:00.060
  • I actually hired a trainer.
  • 00:14:00.060 --> 00:14:00.270
  • I just sat down and said,
  • 00:14:00.270 --> 00:14:01.250
  • "Man, I need some help."
  • 00:14:01.250 --> 00:14:02.150
  • This guy goes to church,
  • 00:14:02.150 --> 00:14:03.050
  • known him for a long time.
  • 00:14:03.050 --> 00:14:04.180
  • Really helped me a lot.
  • 00:14:04.180 --> 00:14:05.120
  • I'm not where I want to be, but
  • 00:14:05.120 --> 00:14:06.140
  • And so he's really helped me,
  • 00:14:08.170 --> 00:14:09.130
  • and I was like, "Man, I'm losing
  • 00:14:09.130 --> 00:14:10.230
  • this weight, but I feel like
  • 00:14:10.230 --> 00:14:11.130
  • I'm kind of slowing down."
  • 00:14:11.130 --> 00:14:12.030
  • He said, "How many sodas are you
  • 00:14:12.030 --> 00:14:13.140
  • drinking?"
  • 00:14:13.140 --> 00:14:14.040
  • I was like, "Oh, busted."
  • 00:14:14.040 --> 00:14:14.250
  • He goes, "Cut them out."
  • 00:14:14.250 --> 00:14:15.260
  • He goes, "Cut them out."
  • 00:14:15.260 --> 00:14:17.080
  • I was just doing diet, actually,
  • 00:14:17.080 --> 00:14:18.210
  • and he said cut those out,
  • 00:14:18.210 --> 00:14:20.260
  • because even those, actually --
  • 00:14:20.260 --> 00:14:22.220
  • because you'll retain
  • 00:14:22.220 --> 00:14:23.120
  • all the water, and it holds
  • 00:14:23.120 --> 00:14:24.200
  • all this kind of stuff.
  • 00:14:24.200 --> 00:14:25.100
  • You gotta get rid of those too,
  • 00:14:25.100 --> 00:14:26.060
  • and that was tough for me,
  • 00:14:26.060 --> 00:14:27.260
  • because I love diet soda.
  • 00:14:27.260 --> 00:14:29.260
  • There's this principle called
  • 00:14:29.260 --> 00:14:30.230
  • the 80/20 principle,
  • 00:14:30.230 --> 00:14:32.030
  • which says that 80%
  • 00:14:32.030 --> 00:14:33.110
  • of what we're doing is really
  • 00:14:33.110 --> 00:14:34.080
  • not that effective, but 20%
  • 00:14:34.080 --> 00:14:35.170
  • of what we do gives us
  • 00:14:35.170 --> 00:14:37.070
  • 80% of our results.
  • 00:14:37.070 --> 00:14:39.010
  • I don't know if you knew that,
  • 00:14:39.010 --> 00:14:40.090
  • but that's a powerful stat.
  • 00:14:40.090 --> 00:14:42.040
  • So think about that.
  • 00:14:42.040 --> 00:14:42.240
  • Twenty percent of what you do
  • 00:14:42.240 --> 00:14:43.210
  • at work during 8:00 to 5:00 is
  • 00:14:44.030 --> 00:14:47.030
  • giving you 80% of your results.
  • 00:14:47.030 --> 00:14:47.230
  • So to double your work
  • 00:14:47.230 --> 00:14:48.130
  • effectiveness, you don't have to
  • 00:14:48.130 --> 00:14:49.230
  • double your hours.
  • 00:14:49.230 --> 00:14:50.130
  • You just need to double within
  • 00:14:50.130 --> 00:14:51.040
  • those hours those 20% efforts.
  • 00:14:51.040 --> 00:14:53.160
  • You can work out seven days a
  • 00:14:53.160 --> 00:14:54.290
  • week, and if you don't change
  • 00:14:54.290 --> 00:14:56.130
  • what you're eating,
  • 00:14:56.130 --> 00:14:57.030
  • it won't matter.
  • 00:14:57.030 --> 00:14:58.250
  • So, I mean, I don't care how
  • 00:14:58.250 --> 00:15:00.070
  • hard you work out, you are not
  • 00:15:00.070 --> 00:15:01.230
  • going to be able out workout
  • 00:15:01.230 --> 00:15:03.150
  • or out run off bad food.
  • 00:15:03.150 --> 00:15:06.120
  • You're going to have to just
  • 00:15:06.120 --> 00:15:07.090
  • change that habit.
  • 00:15:07.090 --> 00:15:10.020
  • So working out is good, yes,
  • 00:15:10.020 --> 00:15:11.060
  • but the eating thing also really
  • 00:15:11.060 --> 00:15:13.150
  • does matter,
  • 00:15:13.150 --> 00:15:14.050
  • Look at 1 Timothy 4, verse 8.
  • 00:15:16.060 --> 00:15:17.130
  • It says, "Workouts in the
  • 00:15:17.130 --> 00:15:18.160
  • gymnasium are useful."
  • 00:15:18.160 --> 00:15:20.220
  • Now the Scripture goes on to
  • 00:15:20.220 --> 00:15:21.200
  • say, another translation of this
  • 00:15:21.200 --> 00:15:23.000
  • says, "For physical exercise is
  • 00:15:23.000 --> 00:15:24.170
  • of some value."
  • 00:15:24.170 --> 00:15:25.180
  • The verse goes on to say it's of
  • 00:15:25.180 --> 00:15:26.280
  • some value, but spiritual
  • 00:15:26.280 --> 00:15:28.000
  • exercise is of greater value,
  • 00:15:28.000 --> 00:15:29.080
  • which we all agree, that being
  • 00:15:29.080 --> 00:15:30.200
  • spiritual is more important than
  • 00:15:30.200 --> 00:15:31.130
  • But the Apostle Paul said
  • 00:15:33.140 --> 00:15:34.130
  • physical exercise
  • 00:15:34.130 --> 00:15:35.090
  • is of some value.
  • 00:15:35.090 --> 00:15:36.130
  • He wrote that when he walked
  • 00:15:36.130 --> 00:15:38.170
  • everywhere he went.
  • 00:15:38.170 --> 00:15:40.000
  • There was no public
  • 00:15:40.000 --> 00:15:40.200
  • transportation.
  • 00:15:40.200 --> 00:15:41.190
  • There were no cars, right.
  • 00:15:41.190 --> 00:15:43.180
  • He walked everywhere.
  • 00:15:43.180 --> 00:15:44.090
  • If he wanted to go see a buddy
  • 00:15:44.090 --> 00:15:45.010
  • three blocks away,
  • 00:15:45.010 --> 00:15:45.210
  • he walked three blocks.
  • 00:15:45.210 --> 00:15:46.250
  • That's how he got there.
  • 00:15:46.250 --> 00:15:47.150
  • If he was going to go to the
  • 00:15:47.150 --> 00:15:48.160
  • town next to him, he walked to
  • 00:15:48.160 --> 00:15:50.100
  • the town next to him.
  • 00:15:50.100 --> 00:15:51.150
  • Just imagine that for a second.
  • 00:15:51.150 --> 00:15:53.010
  • You go see a buddy
  • 00:15:53.010 --> 00:15:53.210
  • 20 minutes away.
  • 00:15:53.210 --> 00:15:54.280
  • Now it's not 20 minutes away.
  • 00:15:54.280 --> 00:15:55.290
  • Not it's two hours away,
  • 00:15:55.290 --> 00:15:56.240
  • and you're walking it.
  • 00:15:56.240 --> 00:15:58.100
  • And he said, that same guy who
  • 00:15:58.100 --> 00:15:59.190
  • walked everywhere, said,
  • 00:15:59.190 --> 00:16:00.280
  • "Physical exercise
  • 00:16:00.280 --> 00:16:01.260
  • has some value."
  • 00:16:01.260 --> 00:16:03.050
  • So I believe today,
  • 00:16:03.050 --> 00:16:04.040
  • if he visited our culture,
  • 00:16:04.040 --> 00:16:05.100
  • he would say, "Physical exercise
  • 00:16:05.100 --> 00:16:06.210
  • has great value,"
  • 00:16:06.210 --> 00:16:08.250
  • because you guys, like me,
  • 00:16:08.250 --> 00:16:10.260
  • drive everywhere.
  • 00:16:10.260 --> 00:16:12.180
  • So we don't have the kind
  • 00:16:12.180 --> 00:16:14.150
  • of lifestyle they had.
  • 00:16:14.150 --> 00:16:15.200
  • We have a sedentary lifestyle.
  • 00:16:15.200 --> 00:16:17.210
  • So physical exercise
  • 00:16:17.210 --> 00:16:18.260
  • is of huge value to us.
  • 00:16:18.260 --> 00:16:21.000
  • It's a big deal.
  • 00:16:21.000 --> 00:16:22.020
  • I mean, there are occassionally
  • 00:16:22.020 --> 00:16:23.080
  • people that do something very
  • 00:16:23.080 --> 00:16:25.000
  • physical for their job, but most
  • 00:16:25.000 --> 00:16:26.160
  • people don't anymore.
  • 00:16:26.160 --> 00:16:28.070
  • Most people's jobs require them
  • 00:16:28.070 --> 00:16:29.230
  • to stand around or sit around
  • 00:16:29.230 --> 00:16:31.100
  • and not do a lot, and this is
  • 00:16:31.100 --> 00:16:32.150
  • So it's a big deal.
  • 00:16:35.060 --> 00:16:36.150
  • Exercise becomes
  • 00:16:36.150 --> 00:16:37.140
  • even more important.
  • 00:16:37.140 --> 00:16:38.050
  • 1 Corinthians 9:27 says,
  • 00:16:38.050 --> 00:16:39.220
  • "I discipline my body
  • 00:16:39.220 --> 00:16:41.170
  • and keep it under control,
  • 00:16:41.170 --> 00:16:42.140
  • lest after preaching to others,
  • 00:16:42.140 --> 00:16:44.030
  • I myself
  • 00:16:44.030 --> 00:16:44.230
  • should be disqualified."
  • 00:16:44.230 --> 00:16:45.170
  • So the Apostle Paul says, "As a
  • 00:16:45.170 --> 00:16:47.100
  • preacher, I want to buff it or
  • 00:16:47.100 --> 00:16:50.030
  • discipline my body, stay in good
  • 00:16:50.030 --> 00:16:51.190
  • shape, so I don't disqualify
  • 00:16:51.190 --> 00:16:54.000
  • myself as a preacher."
  • 00:16:54.000 --> 00:16:55.190
  • Now, think about that.
  • 00:16:55.190 --> 00:16:56.090
  • He's basically saying, "I don't
  • 00:16:56.090 --> 00:16:58.030
  • want to get fat and out of shape
  • 00:16:58.030 --> 00:17:00.110
  • so that you don't want to listen
  • 00:17:00.110 --> 00:17:01.210
  • to me."
  • 00:17:01.210 --> 00:17:02.120
  • Wow.
  • 00:17:02.120 --> 00:17:04.230
  • He just taught us
  • 00:17:04.230 --> 00:17:05.130
  • a powerful principle.
  • 00:17:05.130 --> 00:17:06.030
  • Can I tell you this principle?
  • 00:17:06.030 --> 00:17:06.270
  • And this one hurts a little bit.
  • 00:17:06.270 --> 00:17:08.000
  • I'm not going to lie.
  • 00:17:08.000 --> 00:17:08.150
  • This is gonna be
  • 00:17:08.150 --> 00:17:09.000
  • a little painful.
  • 00:17:09.000 --> 00:17:10.070
  • But your physical shape affects
  • 00:17:11.030 --> 00:17:14.030
  • your leadership.
  • 00:17:14.030 --> 00:17:16.080
  • If you are in good
  • 00:17:16.080 --> 00:17:17.150
  • physical shape,
  • 00:17:17.150 --> 00:17:18.090
  • people naturally look up to you.
  • 00:17:18.130 --> 00:17:21.130
  • If you are not in good physical
  • 00:17:21.130 --> 00:17:23.080
  • shape, that becomes a detriment
  • 00:17:23.080 --> 00:17:24.280
  • to your leadership.
  • 00:17:24.280 --> 00:17:26.070
  • It's really true.
  • 00:17:26.070 --> 00:17:26.240
  • You say, "Well, I'm not leading
  • 00:17:26.240 --> 00:17:27.130
  • anything."
  • 00:17:27.130 --> 00:17:27.260
  • Well, do you have kids?
  • 00:17:27.260 --> 00:17:28.160
  • Because you're leading them.
  • 00:17:28.160 --> 00:17:29.220
  • I mean, I got teenage boys.
  • 00:17:29.220 --> 00:17:30.200
  • If I'm not taking care of my
  • 00:17:30.200 --> 00:17:32.100
  • health, they let me know.
  • 00:17:32.100 --> 00:17:33.280
  • "Dad, come on,
  • 00:17:33.280 --> 00:17:34.260
  • what are you doing?"
  • 00:17:34.260 --> 00:17:35.110
  • They come home,
  • 00:17:35.110 --> 00:17:35.260
  • and I got, like, you know,
  • 00:17:35.260 --> 00:17:36.170
  • Doritos and Oreos all over me.
  • 00:17:36.170 --> 00:17:38.010
  • I'm like, "Hey, what's up?"
  • 00:17:38.010 --> 00:17:40.000
  • You know, like, get busted,
  • 00:17:40.000 --> 00:17:40.180
  • you know?
  • 00:17:40.180 --> 00:17:41.040
  • They're like, "Hey, Dad,
  • 00:17:41.040 --> 00:17:42.010
  • what are you doing?
  • 00:17:42.010 --> 00:17:42.180
  • What are you eating?"
  • 00:17:42.180 --> 00:17:43.030
  • you know.
  • 00:17:43.030 --> 00:17:43.180
  • And I'm like, "Ah, that wasn't
  • 00:17:43.180 --> 00:17:44.080
  • me," you know.
  • 00:17:44.080 --> 00:17:44.280
  • I got, like, all over my face,
  • 00:17:44.280 --> 00:17:45.230
  • and I'm like, "I'm so busted,"
  • 00:17:45.230 --> 00:17:47.060
  • you know.
  • 00:17:47.060 --> 00:17:47.230
  • But if I'm exercising, my boys
  • 00:17:47.230 --> 00:17:49.260
  • will be like, "Hey, Dad,
  • 00:17:49.260 --> 00:17:51.110
  • man, you look good.
  • 00:17:51.110 --> 00:17:52.020
  • Keep it up.
  • 00:17:52.020 --> 00:17:52.210
  • That's awesome."
  • 00:17:52.210 --> 00:17:53.100
  • I can even see it affects my
  • 00:17:53.100 --> 00:17:55.040
  • leaderships with my own kids.
  • 00:17:55.040 --> 00:17:56.100
  • And so -- and the truth is,
  • 00:17:56.100 --> 00:17:58.090
  • I mean, I know as a pastor,
  • 00:17:58.090 --> 00:18:00.170
  • honestly, as I get older, it's
  • 00:18:00.170 --> 00:18:01.270
  • even more important I stay in
  • 00:18:01.270 --> 00:18:02.270
  • good shape if I'm going to
  • 00:18:02.270 --> 00:18:03.200
  • It's a big deal.
  • 00:18:05.230 --> 00:18:06.290
  • So if it's important for me as a
  • 00:18:06.290 --> 00:18:08.130
  • preacher, as a pastor, what
  • 00:18:08.130 --> 00:18:11.130
  • about you?
  • 00:18:11.130 --> 00:18:12.230
  • You want to have the respect in
  • 00:18:12.230 --> 00:18:13.210
  • the office place that you're
  • 00:18:13.210 --> 00:18:14.280
  • looking for?
  • 00:18:14.280 --> 00:18:15.260
  • Get in good shape.
  • 00:18:15.260 --> 00:18:17.010
  • You say, "Pastor, it has nothing
  • 00:18:17.010 --> 00:18:18.000
  • to do with my job."
  • 00:18:18.000 --> 00:18:18.170
  • It has everything to do
  • 00:18:18.170 --> 00:18:19.120
  • with your job,
  • 00:18:19.120 --> 00:18:19.270
  • because it's the package
  • 00:18:19.270 --> 00:18:21.090
  • in which you walk around in.
  • 00:18:21.090 --> 00:18:23.270
  • And so it's a big deal to stay
  • 00:18:23.270 --> 00:18:25.240
  • in good shape.
  • 00:18:25.240 --> 00:18:28.060
  • First of all, you just feel
  • 00:18:28.060 --> 00:18:28.280
  • better about yourself when
  • 00:18:28.280 --> 00:18:30.080
  • you're in better shape.
  • 00:18:30.080 --> 00:18:30.240
  • And I'm not comparing myself
  • 00:18:30.240 --> 00:18:32.060
  • to others.
  • 00:18:32.060 --> 00:18:33.030
  • It's about comparing yourself to
  • 00:18:33.030 --> 00:18:34.200
  • yourself, becoming the best you
  • 00:18:34.200 --> 00:18:36.180
  • that you can be.
  • 00:18:36.180 --> 00:18:37.080
  • Not comparing yourself to other
  • 00:18:37.080 --> 00:18:39.100
  • people.
  • 00:18:39.100 --> 00:18:40.000
  • This isn't about worshipping our
  • 00:18:40.000 --> 00:18:41.110
  • bodies, but it is about being
  • 00:18:41.110 --> 00:18:43.090
  • able to worship God over the
  • 00:18:43.090 --> 00:18:45.020
  • long haul of your life, because
  • 00:18:45.020 --> 00:18:46.060
  • So number three
  • 00:18:48.070 --> 00:18:48.260
  • is to recognize regularly.
  • 00:18:48.260 --> 00:18:51.150
  • Exercise regularly.
  • 00:18:51.150 --> 00:18:52.150
  • It really is a big deal.
  • 00:18:52.150 --> 00:18:54.120
  • Now, listen,
  • 00:18:54.120 --> 00:18:55.020
  • I've been a member
  • 00:18:55.020 --> 00:18:55.170
  • of a gym for years.
  • 00:18:55.170 --> 00:18:56.130
  • It hasn't worked for me.
  • 00:18:56.130 --> 00:18:57.030
  • And then finally, they told me,
  • 00:18:57.030 --> 00:18:57.250
  • "You gotta show up."
  • 00:18:57.250 --> 00:18:58.170
  • I was like, "Well, you didn't
  • 00:18:58.170 --> 00:18:59.070
  • So being a member of a gym
  • 00:19:02.020 --> 00:19:03.010
  • doesn't really matter if you
  • 00:19:03.010 --> 00:19:03.260
  • don't actually show up.
  • 00:19:03.260 --> 00:19:04.210
  • Also, I've had exercise
  • 00:19:04.210 --> 00:19:05.220
  • equipment for years at my house,
  • 00:19:05.220 --> 00:19:07.030
  • and it doesn't work
  • 00:19:07.030 --> 00:19:07.230
  • for me either.
  • 00:19:07.230 --> 00:19:08.130
  • I mean, it's good.
  • 00:19:08.130 --> 00:19:09.030
  • The stuff works.
  • 00:19:09.030 --> 00:19:09.230
  • I've been hanging my clothes
  • 00:19:09.230 --> 00:19:10.130
  • on it and stuff for years.
  • 00:19:10.130 --> 00:19:11.030
  • It works great.
  • 00:19:11.030 --> 00:19:11.230
  • But I'm supposed to actually
  • 00:19:11.230 --> 00:19:13.130
  • take the clothes off it, unbury
  • 00:19:13.130 --> 00:19:15.040
  • it from the boxes in the back
  • 00:19:15.040 --> 00:19:16.060
  • room, and actually get on the
  • 00:19:16.060 --> 00:19:17.090
  • machine, and work out.
  • 00:19:17.090 --> 00:19:18.160
  • See, it doesn't do any good to
  • 00:19:18.160 --> 00:19:19.190
  • know how or to have access to
  • 00:19:19.190 --> 00:19:21.070
  • You can have access to a gym
  • 00:19:23.080 --> 00:19:24.240
  • that you're not going to.
  • 00:19:24.240 --> 00:19:25.280
  • You can have access to equipment
  • 00:19:25.280 --> 00:19:27.080
  • you're not using.
  • 00:19:27.080 --> 00:19:28.180
  • So you gotta actually knock off
  • 00:19:28.180 --> 00:19:30.150
  • the dust to that machine,
  • 00:19:30.150 --> 00:19:31.120
  • get it out, and exercise on it.
  • 00:19:31.120 --> 00:19:33.120
  • You actually have to work out,
  • 00:19:33.120 --> 00:19:35.090
  • exercise.
  • 00:19:35.090 --> 00:19:36.000
  • "Well, I really just want to
  • 00:19:36.000 --> 00:19:37.180
  • stay home and watch TV."
  • 00:19:37.180 --> 00:19:38.150
  • Then stay home and watch TV
  • 00:19:38.150 --> 00:19:39.060
  • while you're on your treadmill,
  • 00:19:39.060 --> 00:19:40.130
  • and watch it while you're
  • 00:19:40.130 --> 00:19:41.120
  • working out at the same time.
  • 00:19:41.120 --> 00:19:43.010
  • And so the point is that we're
  • 00:19:43.010 --> 00:19:44.250
  • going to have to do something
  • 00:19:44.250 --> 00:19:46.050
  • different if you want a new
  • 00:19:46.050 --> 00:19:47.020
  • result.
  • 00:19:47.020 --> 00:19:47.220
  • And by the way, I want to
  • 00:19:47.220 --> 00:19:48.120
  • challenge you today not only to,
  • 00:19:48.120 --> 00:19:49.220
  • you know, go weigh in and all
  • 00:19:49.220 --> 00:19:51.010
  • that stuff, because we have a
  • 00:19:51.010 --> 00:19:51.220
  • little form for you to fill out.
  • 00:19:51.220 --> 00:19:52.130
  • You can get started today if you
  • 00:19:52.130 --> 00:19:53.080
  • want to do it.
  • 00:19:53.080 --> 00:19:53.230
  • But also, I want to encourage
  • 00:19:53.230 --> 00:19:54.280
  • you, the best way to really
  • 00:19:54.280 --> 00:19:55.180
  • stick to something is to get a
  • 00:19:55.180 --> 00:19:56.290
  • buddy, to get a partner.
  • 00:19:56.290 --> 00:19:57.260
  • This is one of the reasons why
  • 00:19:57.260 --> 00:19:59.020
  • we want to encourage you today
  • 00:19:59.020 --> 00:20:00.050
  • to join a life group, and so
  • 00:20:00.050 --> 00:20:01.240
  • then you have other people doing
  • 00:20:01.240 --> 00:20:03.010
  • it with you.
  • 00:20:03.010 --> 00:20:03.160
  • And you're like,
  • 00:20:03.160 --> 00:20:04.030
  • "Oh man, I gotta exercise."
  • 00:20:04.030 --> 00:20:04.260
  • Why?
  • 00:20:04.260 --> 00:20:05.130
  • "Because in 2 days, I'm gonna
  • 00:20:05.130 --> 00:20:06.110
  • be in my life group, and they're
  • 00:20:06.110 --> 00:20:07.020
  • going to ask me," you know, and
  • 00:20:07.020 --> 00:20:09.070
  • it's gonna hold you to it.
  • 00:20:09.070 --> 00:20:10.130
  • And so it's a positive
  • 00:20:10.130 --> 00:20:11.130
  • peer pressure.
  • 00:20:11.130 --> 00:20:12.000
  • You know, peer pressure
  • 00:20:12.000 --> 00:20:12.170
  • is a very real deal.
  • 00:20:12.170 --> 00:20:13.040
  • Even as adults,
  • 00:20:13.040 --> 00:20:13.210
  • we have peer pressure.
  • 00:20:13.210 --> 00:20:14.180
  • You know, if you don't believe
  • 00:20:14.180 --> 00:20:15.280
  • there's peer pressure as adults,
  • 00:20:15.280 --> 00:20:16.230
  • then you haven't lived
  • 00:20:16.230 --> 00:20:17.210
  • very long.
  • 00:20:17.210 --> 00:20:18.090
  • I'm telling you, there is,
  • 00:20:18.090 --> 00:20:19.000
  • because as soon as
  • 00:20:19.000 --> 00:20:19.290
  • your neighbors move up
  • 00:20:19.290 --> 00:20:21.040
  • in that next house, and
  • 00:20:21.040 --> 00:20:22.020
  • you're like, "Oh, I gotta get
  • 00:20:22.020 --> 00:20:23.000
  • that house too," right.
  • 00:20:23.000 --> 00:20:24.290
  • They get that new car.
  • 00:20:24.290 --> 00:20:25.230
  • "I need a new car."
  • 00:20:25.230 --> 00:20:27.000
  • They get a new outfit.
  • 00:20:27.000 --> 00:20:27.240
  • "I need a new outfit."
  • 00:20:27.240 --> 00:20:28.140
  • I mean, peer pressure
  • 00:20:28.140 --> 00:20:29.040
  • for everyone.
  • 00:20:29.040 --> 00:20:29.240
  • So let's get positive peer
  • 00:20:29.240 --> 00:20:30.160
  • pressure going, and get around
  • 00:20:30.160 --> 00:20:32.090
  • people that are all trying to
  • 00:20:32.090 --> 00:20:33.060
  • exercise, and then we'll start
  • 00:20:33.060 --> 00:20:34.150
  • to exercise too.
  • 00:20:34.150 --> 00:20:36.050
  • So I'll encourage you to get
  • 00:20:36.050 --> 00:20:37.050
  • around other people that are
  • 00:20:37.050 --> 00:20:38.180
  • trying to do the right things,
  • 00:20:38.180 --> 00:20:39.110
  • not to mention spiritual things.
  • 00:20:39.110 --> 00:20:40.220
  • This is the power
  • 00:20:40.220 --> 00:20:41.120
  • of a life group.
  • 00:20:41.120 --> 00:20:42.060
  • You say,
  • 00:20:42.060 --> 00:20:42.260
  • "Well, I'm not comfortable,
  • 00:20:42.260 --> 00:20:43.200
  • because I don't know anyone."
  • 00:20:43.200 --> 00:20:45.040
  • Then bring a friend.
  • 00:20:45.040 --> 00:20:45.280
  • You guys go to one together.
  • 00:20:45.280 --> 00:20:46.180
  • That's a great way to do it too.
  • 00:20:46.180 --> 00:20:47.280
  • Or join one, and you'll have
  • 00:20:47.280 --> 00:20:48.180
  • friends within five minutes.
  • 00:20:48.180 --> 00:20:49.090
  • That's the whole point
  • 00:20:49.090 --> 00:20:50.000
  • of the groups.
  • 00:20:50.000 --> 00:20:50.200
  • So I want to encourage you
  • 00:20:50.200 --> 00:20:51.100
  • to do that.
  • 00:20:51.100 --> 00:20:52.000
  • Join a life group,
  • 00:20:52.000 --> 00:20:52.200
  • but exercise regularly.
  • 00:20:52.200 --> 00:20:54.020
  • Look at 1 Peter 5, verse 7.
  • 00:20:54.020 --> 00:20:55.200
  • It says,
  • 00:20:55.200 --> 00:20:56.190
  • "Cast all your anxiety on him,
  • 00:20:56.190 --> 00:20:59.150
  • because he cares for you."
  • 00:20:59.150 --> 00:21:00.120
  • Let me give a little further
  • 00:21:00.120 --> 00:21:01.230
  • breakdown of what anxieties are.
  • 00:21:01.230 --> 00:21:03.040
  • Anxieties are negative thoughts,
  • 00:21:03.040 --> 00:21:04.230
  • negative emotions, anger,
  • 00:21:04.230 --> 00:21:06.190
  • worry, and injustices.
  • 00:21:06.190 --> 00:21:09.190
  • Has someone hurt you,
  • 00:21:09.190 --> 00:21:11.000
  • or is hurting you?
  • 00:21:11.000 --> 00:21:12.170
  • Has someone angered you?
  • 00:21:12.170 --> 00:21:13.200
  • Are you resentful?
  • 00:21:13.200 --> 00:21:14.240
  • Are you mad at something
  • 00:21:14.240 --> 00:21:16.180
  • or someone, or feel like you got
  • 00:21:16.180 --> 00:21:18.120
  • the short end of the deal, or
  • 00:21:18.120 --> 00:21:19.210
  • you're just frustrated with this
  • 00:21:19.210 --> 00:21:21.010
  • person or this situation?
  • 00:21:21.010 --> 00:21:22.090
  • If you've got anxiety,
  • 00:21:22.090 --> 00:21:23.170
  • something, you've got angst,
  • 00:21:23.170 --> 00:21:24.270
  • you're like,
  • 00:21:24.270 --> 00:21:25.170
  • "Ugh, I'm frustrated."
  • 00:21:25.170 --> 00:21:26.200
  • Did you know if you sit there
  • 00:21:26.200 --> 00:21:28.030
  • and hold that, it will literally
  • 00:21:28.030 --> 00:21:29.210
  • ruin your health?
  • 00:21:29.210 --> 00:21:30.190
  • Did you know that?
  • 00:21:30.210 --> 00:21:33.210
  • Doctors tell us that 80%
  • 00:21:33.210 --> 00:21:36.080
  • of physical ailments
  • 00:21:36.080 --> 00:21:37.170
  • are actually mental.
  • 00:21:37.190 --> 00:21:40.190
  • So 80% of the sickness that we
  • 00:21:40.190 --> 00:21:42.090
  • get comes from our own dumb
  • 00:21:42.090 --> 00:21:44.180
  • minds, because we're still angry
  • 00:21:44.270 --> 00:21:47.270
  • at someone, because we're
  • 00:21:47.270 --> 00:21:49.070
  • still mad about a situation,
  • 00:21:49.070 --> 00:21:50.260
  • because we won't let it go,
  • 00:21:50.260 --> 00:21:52.070
  • we won't forgive.
  • 00:21:52.070 --> 00:21:53.080
  • We just want to stay offended.
  • 00:21:53.080 --> 00:21:55.120
  • It will literally eat you alive
  • 00:21:55.220 --> 00:21:58.220
  • if you stay frustrated
  • 00:21:58.220 --> 00:22:00.210
  • and full of anxiety.
  • 00:22:00.210 --> 00:22:02.130
  • So the Bible says to cast.
  • 00:22:02.130 --> 00:22:04.120
  • What does "cast" mean?
  • 00:22:04.120 --> 00:22:05.090
  • Cast.
  • 00:22:05.090 --> 00:22:05.290
  • If you're a fisherman,
  • 00:22:05.290 --> 00:22:06.190
  • you already know.
  • 00:22:06.190 --> 00:22:07.090
  • "Cast" means what?
  • 00:22:07.090 --> 00:22:08.000
  • Throw your lure out, right.
  • 00:22:08.000 --> 00:22:09.030
  • "Cast" means to, what?
  • 00:22:09.030 --> 00:22:10.000
  • Throw your worries.
  • 00:22:10.000 --> 00:22:11.250
  • Throw your cares.
  • 00:22:11.250 --> 00:22:13.100
  • Throw your anxieties on God.
  • 00:22:13.100 --> 00:22:14.230
  • Say, "God, I don't know what
  • 00:22:14.230 --> 00:22:15.150
  • to do about this.
  • 00:22:15.150 --> 00:22:16.050
  • I'm just so frustrated.
  • 00:22:16.050 --> 00:22:17.030
  • Or I'm worried.
  • 00:22:17.030 --> 00:22:17.270
  • Or I'm just -- I don't know
  • 00:22:17.270 --> 00:22:18.270
  • what to do.
  • 00:22:18.270 --> 00:22:19.180
  • I'm anxious.
  • 00:22:19.180 --> 00:22:20.080
  • Agh!
  • 00:22:20.080 --> 00:22:20.280
  • Agh!
  • 00:22:20.280 --> 00:22:21.180
  • God, here.
  • 00:22:21.180 --> 00:22:22.080
  • Take it off from me,"
  • 00:22:22.080 --> 00:22:24.050
  • and you throw it to God.
  • 00:22:24.050 --> 00:22:26.200
  • "Well, I thought this was about
  • 00:22:26.200 --> 00:22:27.140
  • physical stuff.
  • 00:22:27.140 --> 00:22:28.040
  • Now you're getting spiritual."
  • 00:22:28.040 --> 00:22:30.040
  • They go together.
  • 00:22:30.040 --> 00:22:32.040
  • If you are emotionally drained
  • 00:22:32.040 --> 00:22:34.080
  • from some situation,
  • 00:22:34.080 --> 00:22:35.100
  • it's affecting you physically,
  • 00:22:35.100 --> 00:22:36.230
  • did you know that?
  • 00:22:36.230 --> 00:22:37.130
  • Let me ask you something.
  • 00:22:37.130 --> 00:22:39.100
  • You been going through
  • 00:22:39.100 --> 00:22:40.250
  • a lot lately?
  • 00:22:40.250 --> 00:22:42.000
  • Are you sicker than normal too?
  • 00:22:42.000 --> 00:22:44.110
  • Are you dealing with more
  • 00:22:44.110 --> 00:22:46.090
  • physical ailments?
  • 00:22:46.090 --> 00:22:48.070
  • Have you noticed that that
  • 00:22:48.070 --> 00:22:49.090
  • happened at the same time that
  • 00:22:49.090 --> 00:22:51.030
  • you got more anxiety?
  • 00:22:52.010 --> 00:22:55.010
  • See, there's a lot of reasons
  • 00:22:55.010 --> 00:22:56.070
  • why you should get over a pain,
  • 00:22:56.070 --> 00:22:58.090
  • or a problem, or a struggle,
  • 00:22:58.090 --> 00:23:00.110
  • and one of the main reasons is
  • 00:23:00.110 --> 00:23:01.180
  • because it's going to eat you
  • 00:23:01.180 --> 00:23:02.130
  • alive physically if you don't.
  • 00:23:02.130 --> 00:23:03.190
  • You ever known someone
  • 00:23:03.190 --> 00:23:05.250
  • who was always angry?
  • 00:23:05.250 --> 00:23:07.080
  • Go look at their face ten years
  • 00:23:07.080 --> 00:23:08.200
  • from now, and they will have the
  • 00:23:08.200 --> 00:23:10.000
  • anger on their face, the lines,
  • 00:23:10.000 --> 00:23:11.230
  • the markers.
  • 00:23:11.230 --> 00:23:12.130
  • You can literally see they've
  • 00:23:12.130 --> 00:23:13.070
  • become weathered,
  • 00:23:13.070 --> 00:23:15.160
  • because of their hurt
  • 00:23:15.160 --> 00:23:17.100
  • that they would not let go of.
  • 00:23:17.100 --> 00:23:19.220
  • I want to encourage you, don't
  • 00:23:19.220 --> 00:23:21.220
  • age before you need to age
  • 00:23:21.230 --> 00:23:24.230
  • because of hate, bitterness,
  • 00:23:24.240 --> 00:23:27.240
  • resentfulness, unforgiveness.
  • 00:23:27.240 --> 00:23:29.240
  • It's just not worth it.
  • 00:23:29.240 --> 00:23:30.180
  • Cast your anxiety on him.
  • 00:23:30.180 --> 00:23:32.110
  • Proverbs 4:22, 20 and 22 says,
  • 00:23:32.110 --> 00:23:34.240
  • "Turn your ears to my words, for
  • 00:23:34.240 --> 00:23:36.130
  • they are life to those who find
  • 00:23:36.130 --> 00:23:37.280
  • them and health to one's whole
  • 00:23:37.280 --> 00:23:40.090
  • body."
  • 00:23:40.090 --> 00:23:41.000
  • This book is healthy for you.
  • 00:23:41.100 --> 00:23:44.100
  • When you get into God's Word --
  • 00:23:44.100 --> 00:23:45.070
  • every time I read God's Word,
  • 00:23:45.070 --> 00:23:46.040
  • one of the reasons I love to
  • 00:23:46.040 --> 00:23:46.250
  • read it every day is because
  • 00:23:46.250 --> 00:23:48.010
  • when I do, it reminds me
  • 00:23:48.010 --> 00:23:48.290
  • And then whenever I've worried
  • 00:23:51.000 --> 00:23:51.180
  • about it, I say, "Oh yeah God,
  • 00:23:51.180 --> 00:23:52.290
  • if you did it for Daniel,
  • 00:23:52.290 --> 00:23:53.230
  • you'll do it for me.
  • 00:23:53.230 --> 00:23:54.130
  • If you did it for David,
  • 00:23:54.130 --> 00:23:55.160
  • you'll do it for me.
  • 00:23:55.160 --> 00:23:56.060
  • If you did it for Moses,
  • 00:23:56.060 --> 00:23:57.010
  • you'll do it for me.
  • 00:23:57.010 --> 00:23:57.210
  • If you did it for Deborah,
  • 00:23:57.210 --> 00:23:58.180
  • you'll do it for me.
  • 00:23:58.180 --> 00:23:59.080
  • If you did it for Ruth,
  • 00:23:59.080 --> 00:23:59.290
  • you'll do it for me.
  • 00:23:59.290 --> 00:24:00.210
  • If you did it for Adam and Eve,
  • 00:24:00.210 --> 00:24:01.290
  • you'll do it for me."
  • 00:24:01.290 --> 00:24:02.190
  • And when I read the stories,
  • 00:24:02.190 --> 00:24:03.230
  • I realize whatever they were
  • 00:24:03.230 --> 00:24:04.180
  • stressed, they were worried
  • 00:24:04.180 --> 00:24:05.210
  • about, they just trusted the
  • 00:24:05.210 --> 00:24:06.160
  • Lord with it, and God took care
  • 00:24:06.160 --> 00:24:08.030
  • of them.
  • 00:24:08.030 --> 00:24:09.240
  • And so one of the best ways
  • 00:24:09.240 --> 00:24:10.240
  • to learn to cast your anxieties,
  • 00:24:10.240 --> 00:24:12.080
  • your frustrations, your worries
  • 00:24:12.080 --> 00:24:13.140
  • on the Lord is just to get
  • 00:24:13.140 --> 00:24:14.160
  • in his Word.
  • 00:24:14.160 --> 00:24:15.150
  • It just brings health, literally
  • 00:24:15.150 --> 00:24:17.090
  • health to your bones.
  • 00:24:17.090 --> 00:24:18.180
  • How great is that?
  • 00:24:20.290 --> 00:24:22.120
  • You can literally get healthier
  • 00:24:22.120 --> 00:24:23.270
  • by simply trusting
  • 00:24:23.270 --> 00:24:24.220
  • in the Lord more.
  • 00:24:24.220 --> 00:24:26.010
  • 3 John 2 says, "I pray that you
  • 00:24:26.010 --> 00:24:27.170
  • may enjoy good health and that
  • 00:24:27.170 --> 00:24:29.120
  • all may go well with you, even
  • 00:24:29.120 --> 00:24:30.230
  • as your soul is getting
  • 00:24:30.230 --> 00:24:32.040
  • along well."
  • 00:24:32.040 --> 00:24:33.080
  • You see, your body affects your
  • 00:24:33.080 --> 00:24:34.120
  • mind and your soul, and
  • 00:24:34.120 --> 00:24:35.190
  • your mind and your soul affects
  • 00:24:35.190 --> 00:24:37.000
  • your body.
  • 00:24:37.000 --> 00:24:38.060
  • It's not one or the other.
  • 00:24:38.060 --> 00:24:38.270
  • It is both.
  • 00:24:38.270 --> 00:24:41.150
  • Number four: give every worry
  • 00:24:41.150 --> 00:24:42.270
  • to God, and live by his Word.
  • 00:24:42.270 --> 00:24:45.200
  • Give every worry to God,
  • 00:24:45.200 --> 00:24:46.290
  • and live by his Word.
  • 00:24:48.080 --> 00:24:51.080
  • You know, the Bible says that
  • 00:24:51.080 --> 00:24:53.000
  • the devil came to steal,
  • 00:24:53.000 --> 00:24:55.200
  • to kill, and to destroy.
  • 00:24:55.200 --> 00:24:56.280
  • The devil wants to kill you.
  • 00:24:56.280 --> 00:24:59.210
  • Did you know that?
  • 00:24:59.210 --> 00:25:00.240
  • He wants to kill you.
  • 00:25:00.240 --> 00:25:03.030
  • But the devil doesn't have to do
  • 00:25:03.030 --> 00:25:04.130
  • a whole lot if you're already
  • 00:25:04.130 --> 00:25:05.230
  • killing yourself.
  • 00:25:05.230 --> 00:25:08.180
  • And many of us are killing
  • 00:25:08.180 --> 00:25:09.240
  • ourselves.
  • 00:25:09.240 --> 00:25:10.140
  • We are digging our graves
  • 00:25:10.140 --> 00:25:12.060
  • with our teeth with what
  • 00:25:12.130 --> 00:25:15.130
  • we are eating and
  • 00:25:15.280 --> 00:25:18.280
  • with a sedentary lifestyle.
  • 00:25:18.280 --> 00:25:20.080
  • God wants us to take care
  • 00:25:20.080 --> 00:25:22.200
  • of our physical bodies.
  • 00:25:22.200 --> 00:25:24.250
  • You can do this.
  • 00:25:24.250 --> 00:25:25.210
  • I want to challenge you
  • 00:25:25.210 --> 00:25:27.030
  • to join me.
  • 00:25:27.030 --> 00:25:27.240
  • I'm all in.
  • 00:25:27.240 --> 00:25:28.280
  • I mean, I'm announcing
  • 00:25:28.280 --> 00:25:29.210
  • it to all you.
  • 00:25:29.210 --> 00:25:30.110
  • I gotta do it now.
  • 00:25:30.110 --> 00:25:31.010
  • I want to challenge you to join
  • 00:25:31.010 --> 00:25:33.030
  • me in this, and I believe God
  • 00:25:33.030 --> 00:25:34.030
  • will use this in a powerful way
  • 00:25:34.030 --> 00:25:36.050
  • - Bill: Wow, God is awesome.
  • 00:25:43.250 --> 00:25:46.220
  • He's clearly moving today.
  • 00:25:46.220 --> 00:25:48.180
  • I got a question I'd like to ask
  • 00:25:48.180 --> 00:25:49.220
  • you, have you prayed a simple
  • 00:25:49.220 --> 00:25:51.170
  • prayer to receive Christ
  • 00:25:51.170 --> 00:25:53.010
  • as your Lord and Savior?
  • 00:25:53.010 --> 00:25:54.100
  • If you've never done so, would
  • 00:25:54.100 --> 00:25:55.200
  • you pray this simple prayer
  • 00:25:55.200 --> 00:25:56.180
  • with me?
  • 00:25:56.180 --> 00:25:57.080
  • This is actually how you
  • 00:25:57.080 --> 00:25:58.040
  • become a Christian.
  • 00:25:58.040 --> 00:25:59.170
  • You can pray with me right now.
  • 00:25:59.170 --> 00:26:00.240
  • You can say, "Dear Jesus,
  • 00:26:00.240 --> 00:26:02.200
  • I realize I need you in my life.
  • 00:26:02.200 --> 00:26:04.260
  • I believe you died on the cross
  • 00:26:04.260 --> 00:26:06.080
  • and paid a price for all my sins
  • 00:26:06.080 --> 00:26:08.080
  • and that you rose again from the
  • 00:26:08.080 --> 00:26:09.180
  • grave proving that you're God.
  • 00:26:09.180 --> 00:26:11.010
  • And now I ask you, I invite you
  • 00:26:11.010 --> 00:26:13.060
  • to come into my life, change me
  • 00:26:13.060 --> 00:26:15.010
  • from within, be my Lord
  • 00:26:15.010 --> 00:26:17.080
  • and be my Savior.
  • 00:26:17.080 --> 00:26:18.150
  • Thank you, Jesus,
  • 00:26:18.150 --> 00:26:19.240
  • for saving me."
  • 00:26:19.240 --> 00:26:20.260
  • If you just prayed that prayer,
  • 00:26:20.260 --> 00:26:21.280
  • we believe that Christ has come
  • 00:26:21.280 --> 00:26:23.030
  • in your life and that's what it
  • 00:26:23.030 --> 00:26:24.180
  • means to become a Christian.
  • 00:26:24.180 --> 00:26:26.050
  • Thanks so much for being a part
