  • 00:00:00.280 --> 00:00:00.290
  • 00:00:00.290 --> 00:00:01.000
  • 00:00:01.000 --> 00:00:01.240
  • Ed Young: The church should be
  • 00:00:01.250 --> 00:00:02.230
  • the most creative Institute in the world.
  • 00:00:02.240 --> 00:00:05.150
  • The church is where it happens!
  • 00:00:07.050 --> 00:00:09.050
  • The church is where we find purpose, and meaning, and power!
  • 00:00:09.060 --> 00:00:13.170
  • The church is the living, breathing body of Christ!
  • 00:00:13.180 --> 00:00:19.140
  • Wisdom, though, is seeing life through the perspective of God.
  • 00:00:20.220 --> 00:00:28.110
  • You've never locked eyes with someone
  • 00:00:28.120 --> 00:00:30.050
  • that Jesus did not die for.
  • 00:00:30.060 --> 00:00:32.010
  • Ed Young: Welcome to my home.
  • 00:00:34.170 --> 00:00:36.210
  • This is where I spend a lot of time studying as I prepare for
  • 00:00:36.220 --> 00:00:41.010
  • different messages that you watch each and every week.
  • 00:00:41.020 --> 00:00:45.020
  • Thank you also for allowing me to come into your home,
  • 00:00:45.030 --> 00:00:49.210
  • through the miracle of technology and television.
  • 00:00:49.220 --> 00:00:52.240
  • Sit back and relax and watch this because I truly believe
  • 00:00:52.250 --> 00:00:56.270
  • the next several moments can change the course of your life.
  • 00:00:56.280 --> 00:01:00.230
  • Ed: Last week I told a little story about what happened
  • 00:01:01.190 --> 00:01:05.050
  • when our adult children were children.
  • 00:01:05.060 --> 00:01:08.030
  • We took a weeklong vacation in beautiful San Antonio, Texas.
  • 00:01:08.040 --> 00:01:12.000
  • We had to pack the car, and we packed suitcases and luggage
  • 00:01:12.010 --> 00:01:17.130
  • on top of the car using luggage rack.
  • 00:01:17.140 --> 00:01:20.070
  • So, we finally made it back to Dallas, and I drove into our
  • 00:01:20.080 --> 00:01:25.030
  • neighborhood and I was like, Oh man, this is so great to finally
  • 00:01:25.040 --> 00:01:28.050
  • be home again.
  • 00:01:28.060 --> 00:01:29.210
  • Our driveway was on an incline so as I approached the the
  • 00:01:29.220 --> 00:01:34.280
  • driveway and garage, I instinctively pressed the garage
  • 00:01:34.290 --> 00:01:39.090
  • door opener, the garage door opened.
  • 00:01:39.100 --> 00:01:42.160
  • Then you have to kind of, you know, mash the accelerator, push
  • 00:01:42.170 --> 00:01:45.230
  • the accelerator pretty strong because you have to climb up
  • 00:01:45.240 --> 00:01:48.290
  • this incline to get into the garage.
  • 00:01:49.000 --> 00:01:53.060
  • Well, in my excitement, I forgot about the fact that we had these
  • 00:01:53.070 --> 00:01:58.130
  • giant piles of luggage on top of our SUV.
  • 00:01:58.140 --> 00:02:03.130
  • So, when I pressed the accelerator, we flew into the
  • 00:02:03.140 --> 00:02:07.110
  • garage and I heard this explosion.
  • 00:02:07.120 --> 00:02:11.070
  • Drywall and nails and bags were everywhere.
  • 00:02:11.080 --> 00:02:15.120
  • Lisa and I looked at each other we go, "The luggage, the garage.
  • 00:02:15.130 --> 00:02:21.160
  • Oh, my gosh!"
  • 00:02:21.170 --> 00:02:25.010
  • We got out of the car and assessed the damage and it was
  • 00:02:25.020 --> 00:02:27.210
  • very, very costly.
  • 00:02:27.220 --> 00:02:30.230
  • I had forgotten about the luggage.
  • 00:02:30.240 --> 00:02:34.210
  • I had forgotten about the fact that it wouldn't fit into our
  • 00:02:34.220 --> 00:02:39.150
  • garage and it caused a lot of destruction.
  • 00:02:39.160 --> 00:02:44.090
  • Last week, we looked at each other and we said, "Hey, we
  • 00:02:44.100 --> 00:02:48.090
  • can't change."
  • 00:02:48.100 --> 00:02:50.020
  • We said, "We all have baggage.
  • 00:02:50.030 --> 00:02:52.290
  • We all have family baggage we're lugging around on our lives."
  • 00:02:53.000 --> 00:02:59.050
  • So, for us to function the way God desires we have to deal with
  • 00:02:59.060 --> 00:03:04.030
  • this dysfunction, but too many of us are in--did you see this?
  • 00:03:04.040 --> 00:03:08.140
  • We did this this week.
  • 00:03:08.150 --> 00:03:10.230
  • Too many of us are in what?
  • 00:03:10.240 --> 00:03:13.290
  • Not Denali, but what?
  • 00:03:14.000 --> 00:03:15.250
  • Say it again.
  • 00:03:15.260 --> 00:03:17.090
  • We're gonna keep this on this car, denial.
  • 00:03:17.100 --> 00:03:21.140
  • We're in denial. "Me, are you--what?
  • 00:03:21.150 --> 00:03:24.240
  • I don't have any baggage. I don't have any luggage.
  • 00:03:24.250 --> 00:03:31.070
  • I'm not, I'm not weighted down with dysfunction, not me."
  • 00:03:31.080 --> 00:03:36.290
  • Are you kidding me?
  • 00:03:37.000 --> 00:03:38.220
  • You're Louis Vuitton Linda, are you kidding me?
  • 00:03:38.230 --> 00:03:41.230
  • Your Samsonite Sam, are you kidding me?
  • 00:03:41.240 --> 00:03:45.260
  • You're Tume, Tina.
  • 00:03:45.270 --> 00:03:50.260
  • Let's see what Scripture it says.
  • 00:03:50.270 --> 00:03:52.270
  • Raj, Hebrews 12:1 and 2, read it together.
  • 00:03:52.280 --> 00:03:57.250
  • Let's throw off, what?
  • 00:03:57.260 --> 00:04:00.080
  • Any extra baggage, get rid of the sin that trips us up,
  • 00:04:00.090 --> 00:04:06.170
  • and what?
  • 00:04:06.180 --> 00:04:08.020
  • Fix our eyes on Jesus.
  • 00:04:08.030 --> 00:04:11.270
  • This baggage can mess us up.
  • 00:04:11.280 --> 00:04:15.060
  • It can trip us up.
  • 00:04:15.070 --> 00:04:17.200
  • It can cause some serious problems.
  • 00:04:17.210 --> 00:04:20.060
  • We're just weighted down, yet how funny do we look in the eyes
  • 00:04:20.070 --> 00:04:24.170
  • of God? "Baggage, me?
  • 00:04:24.180 --> 00:04:26.130
  • I don't have any baggage."
  • 00:04:26.140 --> 00:04:30.200
  • Again, we have it because of our depravity, because of our sin
  • 00:04:32.200 --> 00:04:38.070
  • nature.
  • 00:04:38.080 --> 00:04:39.070
  • We have it because of our choices.
  • 00:04:39.080 --> 00:04:43.240
  • We have it because of our family of origin.
  • 00:04:43.250 --> 00:04:47.240
  • Baggage, dysfunction.
  • 00:04:47.250 --> 00:04:53.150
  • We dis God's function.
  • 00:04:53.160 --> 00:04:58.290
  • Let's say, for example, just use your imagination.
  • 00:04:59.000 --> 00:05:01.190
  • Let's just say that you met somebody that owned the largest
  • 00:05:01.200 --> 00:05:07.090
  • skyscraper in Dallas, which happens to be the Bank of
  • 00:05:07.100 --> 00:05:09.290
  • America Plaza, 72 stories tall.
  • 00:05:10.000 --> 00:05:12.030
  • And let's say this person invited you and your family down
  • 00:05:12.040 --> 00:05:14.200
  • to his building, and he took you to the observation deck to check
  • 00:05:14.210 --> 00:05:20.290
  • out the sights and the sounds of Dallas.
  • 00:05:21.000 --> 00:05:23.190
  • So, you drove your denial down to the building, VIP parking, of
  • 00:05:23.200 --> 00:05:30.200
  • course, because this guy's very wealthy.
  • 00:05:30.210 --> 00:05:34.010
  • All of a sudden, though, you're standing on this observation
  • 00:05:34.020 --> 00:05:37.180
  • deck and your worst nightmare becomes a reality.
  • 00:05:37.190 --> 00:05:41.290
  • Your son goes, "Dad, I smell some smoke."
  • 00:05:42.000 --> 00:05:46.270
  • You're like, "Smoke that's just from that barbecue stand down
  • 00:05:46.280 --> 00:05:51.020
  • there, see it? Yeah.
  • 00:05:51.030 --> 00:05:53.060
  • That's a really good barbecue, by the way.
  • 00:05:53.070 --> 00:05:55.100
  • It's just the BBQ."
  • 00:05:55.110 --> 00:05:57.110
  • And the owner goes, "No, it's not.
  • 00:05:57.120 --> 00:05:59.080
  • The building is on fire.
  • 00:05:59.090 --> 00:06:01.200
  • We're standing on a towering Inferno.
  • 00:06:01.210 --> 00:06:06.080
  • Oh no, the elevator system is jammed.
  • 00:06:06.090 --> 00:06:07.260
  • The stairs are closed.
  • 00:06:07.270 --> 00:06:10.230
  • We're going to die."
  • 00:06:10.240 --> 00:06:13.220
  • And you look at your Yeezys are melting.
  • 00:06:13.230 --> 00:06:19.010
  • Your hair's being cinched.
  • 00:06:19.020 --> 00:06:21.180
  • You're standing on this 72-story building and you look through
  • 00:06:21.190 --> 00:06:26.280
  • your tears, and through the smoke, and the flames, and you
  • 00:06:26.290 --> 00:06:30.080
  • see a sole solitary figure on the building adjacent to you
  • 00:06:30.090 --> 00:06:36.080
  • across the street from you.
  • 00:06:36.090 --> 00:06:38.050
  • This building is only 65 stories tall.
  • 00:06:38.060 --> 00:06:40.170
  • And you see this guy kind of moving around, and he takes out
  • 00:06:40.180 --> 00:06:43.080
  • a little cannon.
  • 00:06:43.090 --> 00:06:44.060
  • You're thinking, "What, I'm dying.
  • 00:06:44.070 --> 00:06:48.160
  • This guy's firing a cannon."
  • 00:06:48.170 --> 00:06:51.200
  • He fires the cannon, out of the cannon explodes a three-inch
  • 00:06:51.210 --> 00:06:56.220
  • wide steel cable that flies from his building to your building,
  • 00:06:56.230 --> 00:07:03.230
  • and the cable, like Batman, wraps around the air
  • 00:07:03.240 --> 00:07:09.260
  • conditioning unit.
  • 00:07:09.270 --> 00:07:12.040
  • And then to your shock, you see this lone, solitary figure hop
  • 00:07:12.050 --> 00:07:18.220
  • on to the three-inch wide cable between the two buildings, and
  • 00:07:18.230 --> 00:07:25.010
  • he's doing some dance moves on it.
  • 00:07:25.020 --> 00:07:28.290
  • And he's walking around, you know, 360s, all this stuff, and
  • 00:07:29.000 --> 00:07:33.190
  • you're like.
  • 00:07:33.200 --> 00:07:35.240
  • And then you see him disappear and you see him bring out a
  • 00:07:35.250 --> 00:07:41.050
  • wheelbarrow.
  • 00:07:41.060 --> 00:07:42.160
  • And he wheels the barrow, I guess it's called a barrow,
  • 00:07:42.170 --> 00:07:48.270
  • wheelbarrow, yeah.
  • 00:07:48.280 --> 00:07:50.040
  • he wheels the barrow across the three-inch wide cable through
  • 00:07:50.050 --> 00:07:55.220
  • the smoke and the flames.
  • 00:07:55.230 --> 00:07:58.270
  • He wheels the wheelbarrow right up to you.
  • 00:07:58.280 --> 00:08:04.040
  • He looks in your eyes and he simply says, "Get in,
  • 00:08:07.170 --> 00:08:15.070
  • get in the wheelbarrow.
  • 00:08:15.080 --> 00:08:17.120
  • It's your only chance of survival.
  • 00:08:17.130 --> 00:08:19.280
  • Get in.
  • 00:08:19.290 --> 00:08:21.080
  • I'm gonna rescue you.
  • 00:08:21.090 --> 00:08:22.190
  • Get in.
  • 00:08:22.200 --> 00:08:23.150
  • I'm gonna save you.
  • 00:08:23.160 --> 00:08:24.100
  • Get in, get in, get in."
  • 00:08:24.110 --> 00:08:28.210
  • What do you do?
  • 00:08:30.240 --> 00:08:33.060
  • Last week we said, remember step one, I can't change.
  • 00:08:33.070 --> 00:08:37.160
  • Step two, God is the only one who can change me.
  • 00:08:37.170 --> 00:08:43.290
  • And then the true change comes because of the exchange.
  • 00:08:44.000 --> 00:08:48.260
  • Jesus gave his life for your sins and mine, for your
  • 00:08:48.270 --> 00:08:54.050
  • dysfunction and mine.
  • 00:08:54.060 --> 00:08:57.160
  • And if we receive Jesus, he comes into our lives and we
  • 00:08:57.170 --> 00:09:04.220
  • exchange our guilt for his grace, our mistakes for his
  • 00:09:04.230 --> 00:09:07.280
  • mercy, our sin for the Savior of the world, we said that.
  • 00:09:07.290 --> 00:09:14.220
  • Well, step three is the wheelbarrow step.
  • 00:09:14.230 --> 00:09:23.070
  • Step three says that our great God, don't miss this, has fanned
  • 00:09:23.080 --> 00:09:28.080
  • the chasm from one building to another.
  • 00:09:28.090 --> 00:09:34.060
  • Our great God has sent Jesus to fire the cable from God's side
  • 00:09:34.070 --> 00:09:40.240
  • to man's side.
  • 00:09:40.250 --> 00:09:42.220
  • He's crossed the cable.
  • 00:09:42.230 --> 00:09:45.030
  • We're in a towering Inferno.
  • 00:09:45.040 --> 00:09:48.030
  • He's locked eyes with you and me, and he looks at us and says,
  • 00:09:48.040 --> 00:09:53.090
  • "Get in.
  • 00:09:53.100 --> 00:09:56.250
  • Get in.
  • 00:09:56.260 --> 00:10:00.120
  • The wheelbarrow is right up in your grill.
  • 00:10:00.130 --> 00:10:02.190
  • Get in," Jesus says, "Get in.
  • 00:10:02.200 --> 00:10:05.010
  • I have a will, W-I-L-L, barrow for you.
  • 00:10:05.020 --> 00:10:10.200
  • Get in."
  • 00:10:10.210 --> 00:10:14.080
  • Some of us have gotten in.
  • 00:10:14.090 --> 00:10:18.150
  • Others of us here, we don't comprehend our true condition.
  • 00:10:18.160 --> 00:10:23.210
  • Again, we're in denial.
  • 00:10:23.220 --> 00:10:25.100
  • "Fire?
  • 00:10:25.110 --> 00:10:29.140
  • Yeah, my Yeezys are melting?
  • 00:10:29.150 --> 00:10:32.290
  • Yeah, I have blisters on the feet, but I can take care of my
  • 00:10:33.000 --> 00:10:38.150
  • situation. I'm the man.
  • 00:10:38.160 --> 00:10:42.040
  • I'm the woman.
  • 00:10:42.050 --> 00:10:43.140
  • I don't really have dysfunction.
  • 00:10:43.150 --> 00:10:45.200
  • I don't really have issues.
  • 00:10:45.210 --> 00:10:47.130
  • I can do what I need to do."
  • 00:10:47.140 --> 00:10:50.100
  • Well, the Bible says this, "Satan, who is the god of this
  • 00:10:50.110 --> 00:10:54.050
  • evil world, has made him blind, unable to see the glorious light
  • 00:10:54.060 --> 00:10:59.070
  • of the gospel that is shining upon him, or to understand the
  • 00:10:59.080 --> 00:11:03.250
  • amazing message."
  • 00:11:03.260 --> 00:11:05.230
  • We preach about the glory of Christ who is in God.
  • 00:11:05.240 --> 00:11:09.180
  • That verse keeps going, doesn't it?
  • 00:11:09.190 --> 00:11:11.190
  • So, the person standing here in denial, doesn't get it.
  • 00:11:13.270 --> 00:11:20.140
  • So, then we have the person who blames.
  • 00:11:20.150 --> 00:11:22.250
  • You're standing there on the observation deck, you're in a
  • 00:11:22.260 --> 00:11:25.020
  • towering Inferno, and you blame others.
  • 00:11:25.030 --> 00:11:27.200
  • "It's my coach's fault, my parents' fault.
  • 00:11:27.210 --> 00:11:30.030
  • It's my grandfather's fault.
  • 00:11:30.040 --> 00:11:31.240
  • I'm just this way.
  • 00:11:31.250 --> 00:11:32.200
  • I can't help myself."
  • 00:11:32.210 --> 00:11:35.140
  • Well, that's like saying, "Okay, I'm 6'8, 225 pounds.
  • 00:11:35.150 --> 00:11:40.280
  • I have 5% body fat, and a 40-inch vertical jump.
  • 00:11:40.290 --> 00:11:43.260
  • I can't help myself.
  • 00:11:43.270 --> 00:11:45.000
  • I just got to play in the NBA."
  • 00:11:45.010 --> 00:11:46.160
  • No, you have a choice.
  • 00:11:46.170 --> 00:11:51.070
  • That's what the homosexual crowd says, "Oh, I just can't help
  • 00:11:51.080 --> 00:11:53.150
  • myself."
  • 00:11:53.160 --> 00:11:54.220
  • Yeah, you could be predisposed to homosexuality, you have a
  • 00:11:54.230 --> 00:11:57.150
  • choice.
  • 00:11:57.160 --> 00:11:58.280
  • "Oh, I just have to sleep around, go from bed to bed.
  • 00:11:58.290 --> 00:12:02.020
  • I'm just that way.
  • 00:12:02.030 --> 00:12:03.000
  • You know, my father was a was a ladies' man.
  • 00:12:03.010 --> 00:12:06.130
  • I just can't help myself."
  • 00:12:06.140 --> 00:12:08.190
  • What are you smoking?
  • 00:12:08.200 --> 00:12:10.200
  • Because you probably are. We have a choice.
  • 00:12:12.040 --> 00:12:14.070
  • We all have predispositions.
  • 00:12:14.080 --> 00:12:15.040
  • We all have tendencies.
  • 00:12:15.050 --> 00:12:17.240
  • I understand that because look at our, look at our background.
  • 00:12:17.250 --> 00:12:23.200
  • Look at our origin of the family of origin.
  • 00:12:23.210 --> 00:12:26.270
  • A crooked landscaper, Adam, and a diva mom, Eve, chose to sin,
  • 00:12:26.280 --> 00:12:33.210
  • chose to rebel.
  • 00:12:33.220 --> 00:12:35.090
  • We have that tendency, so we all do.
  • 00:12:35.100 --> 00:12:37.000
  • Join the club.
  • 00:12:37.010 --> 00:12:38.240
  • I'm not talking about genetics.
  • 00:12:38.250 --> 00:12:40.000
  • I'm talking about something much more powerful than that, I'm
  • 00:12:40.010 --> 00:12:41.180
  • talking about sin-etics.
  • 00:12:41.190 --> 00:12:43.180
  • In Hosea chapter 4, verse 4, let's go, Raj.
  • 00:12:43.190 --> 00:12:47.060
  • "Don't point your finger at someone else and try to pass the
  • 00:12:47.070 --> 00:12:51.150
  • blame to him," the Bible says this.
  • 00:12:51.160 --> 00:12:54.120
  • And another reason we don't get into the wheelbarrow is because
  • 00:12:54.130 --> 00:12:58.040
  • of fear. We're fearful.
  • 00:12:58.050 --> 00:13:00.190
  • "Oh, no, what if I jump in the wheelbarrow?
  • 00:13:00.200 --> 00:13:02.230
  • Where will Jesus take me?
  • 00:13:02.240 --> 00:13:04.050
  • He might, he might take me to Borneo and I'll become a
  • 00:13:04.060 --> 00:13:07.170
  • missionary.
  • 00:13:07.180 --> 00:13:08.210
  • Or he might crash my fun."
  • 00:13:08.220 --> 00:13:10.140
  • And we don't really trust him.
  • 00:13:10.150 --> 00:13:14.200
  • "I'll be less of a man or less of a woman."
  • 00:13:14.210 --> 00:13:17.000
  • We don't really trust him.
  • 00:13:17.010 --> 00:13:19.040
  • He has the best way for us to function.
  • 00:13:19.050 --> 00:13:22.200
  • His way works.
  • 00:13:22.210 --> 00:13:24.130
  • And then some of us do this, we take out our duffel bag of
  • 00:13:24.140 --> 00:13:31.110
  • dysfunction.
  • 00:13:31.120 --> 00:13:33.160
  • Take a knee and we go, "Oh, well.
  • 00:13:33.170 --> 00:13:36.130
  • Okay, Jesus. Yeah.
  • 00:13:36.140 --> 00:13:38.000
  • Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh.
  • 00:13:38.010 --> 00:13:39.090
  • You want to take me out but look, I've got this approval
  • 00:13:39.100 --> 00:13:43.100
  • situation."
  • 00:13:43.110 --> 00:13:44.170
  • Maybe you grew up in a family where you're just trying to hear
  • 00:13:44.180 --> 00:13:48.110
  • the words that you never heard growing up, "You matter.
  • 00:13:48.120 --> 00:13:52.120
  • You're great at that. I love you."
  • 00:13:52.130 --> 00:13:54.080
  • A lot of people are being driven by that or resentment,
  • 00:13:54.090 --> 00:13:59.210
  • resentment, resentment.
  • 00:13:59.220 --> 00:14:01.160
  • You're just resentful.
  • 00:14:01.170 --> 00:14:04.130
  • It was unfair the hand that you were dealt, unfair, you say.
  • 00:14:04.140 --> 00:14:10.290
  • Egotism, pride comes before every single sin.
  • 00:14:11.000 --> 00:14:15.090
  • It's the precursor of every sin, pride, pride.
  • 00:14:15.100 --> 00:14:19.120
  • You can't go on an anger fit unless you have pride.
  • 00:14:19.130 --> 00:14:23.120
  • You can't go and take the lure of lust, unless pride is in play
  • 00:14:23.130 --> 00:14:27.180
  • first.
  • 00:14:27.190 --> 00:14:28.240
  • You can't get greedy unless you're prideful or envious.
  • 00:14:28.250 --> 00:14:32.000
  • It's ugly, U-G-L-Y, you ain't got no alibi, ugly pride is.
  • 00:14:32.010 --> 00:14:38.230
  • Then we have promiscuity.
  • 00:14:38.240 --> 00:14:41.010
  • Why are people going, "You know what?
  • 00:14:41.020 --> 00:14:43.030
  • I don't want to get married.
  • 00:14:43.040 --> 00:14:44.170
  • I mean, I don't I don't want to get married."
  • 00:14:44.180 --> 00:14:47.220
  • They're saying that because they grew up in a divorce situation
  • 00:14:47.230 --> 00:14:52.020
  • and they have zero trust in the institution of marriage.
  • 00:14:52.030 --> 00:14:54.250
  • Criticism, "I want people to feel as miserable as I feel.
  • 00:14:54.260 --> 00:15:00.060
  • I mean, you know, I grew up where I was criticized and where
  • 00:15:00.070 --> 00:15:04.070
  • I heard criticism." And what do we do?
  • 00:15:04.080 --> 00:15:05.280
  • We either repeat it or retell it, and a lot of us repeat it.
  • 00:15:05.290 --> 00:15:09.270
  • "I'm just gonna, I'm just gonna build.
  • 00:15:09.280 --> 00:15:12.030
  • I'm gonna build a wheelbarrow wall.
  • 00:15:12.040 --> 00:15:14.280
  • I'm not gonna get in."
  • 00:15:14.290 --> 00:15:16.080
  • Anxiety, oh, that's another major, major situation from
  • 00:15:16.090 --> 00:15:22.140
  • dysfunction, anxiety, anxious.
  • 00:15:22.150 --> 00:15:27.080
  • Too much pressure was put on kids at too early an age,
  • 00:15:27.090 --> 00:15:32.240
  • couldn't handle it and now they're adults, they're about to
  • 00:15:32.250 --> 00:15:37.050
  • lose their mind because of what? Anxiety.
  • 00:15:37.060 --> 00:15:40.200
  • Deception, it's so funny I talked about deception last week
  • 00:15:40.210 --> 00:15:45.070
  • because in deception from a dysfunctional situation, we're
  • 00:15:45.080 --> 00:15:50.040
  • just deceptive just to be deceptive.
  • 00:15:50.050 --> 00:15:52.240
  • We've seen deception and we've seen truth, and we've seen the
  • 00:15:52.250 --> 00:15:56.040
  • capriciousness of that.
  • 00:15:56.050 --> 00:15:57.280
  • So, a lot of people just lie just to lie.
  • 00:15:57.290 --> 00:16:02.220
  • Forgiveness, that's another one, forgiveness.
  • 00:16:02.230 --> 00:16:05.040
  • Forgiveness is the greatest gift.
  • 00:16:05.050 --> 00:16:07.250
  • So awesome that you can give yourself, and maybe you grew up
  • 00:16:07.260 --> 00:16:09.210
  • in a family where there was no forgiveness.
  • 00:16:09.220 --> 00:16:12.040
  • Or maybe you're harboring this hurt you're like, "I'm not going
  • 00:16:12.050 --> 00:16:14.190
  • to release.
  • 00:16:14.200 --> 00:16:15.180
  • My father, he took advantage of me.
  • 00:16:15.190 --> 00:16:17.130
  • He said that, or that person, or that situation."
  • 00:16:17.140 --> 00:16:20.260
  • But we build that on the wall that keeps us from the
  • 00:16:20.270 --> 00:16:27.070
  • wheelbarrow.
  • 00:16:27.080 --> 00:16:28.140
  • Control, "I was out of control, my family was so, I'm gonna be
  • 00:16:28.150 --> 00:16:32.000
  • in control."
  • 00:16:32.010 --> 00:16:33.100
  • And maybe someone in your family controlled everything.
  • 00:16:33.110 --> 00:16:36.090
  • You know what I'm talking about?
  • 00:16:36.100 --> 00:16:37.190
  • Maybe you're like, "Oh, my mother ran the show.
  • 00:16:37.200 --> 00:16:40.100
  • She controlled my father.
  • 00:16:40.110 --> 00:16:46.200
  • I mean, it was sad, talking about domination."
  • 00:16:46.210 --> 00:16:49.290
  • Control, isn't that something that we deal with?
  • 00:16:53.060 --> 00:16:57.230
  • Uh-oh, no, it's not gonna work.
  • 00:16:57.240 --> 00:17:02.150
  • I'll just do that like that because I can't control it.
  • 00:17:02.160 --> 00:17:08.100
  • Perfectionism, maybe that's you.
  • 00:17:11.290 --> 00:17:18.210
  • Anger, oh man.
  • 00:17:18.220 --> 00:17:22.060
  • Took those emotions, stuffed them down as a kid.
  • 00:17:22.070 --> 00:17:25.040
  • You stuffed them, you stuffed them, you stuffed them, and now
  • 00:17:25.050 --> 00:17:27.100
  • they're coming out.
  • 00:17:27.110 --> 00:17:28.090
  • You watch it, it'll happen when you get older.
  • 00:17:28.100 --> 00:17:30.140
  • Gotta deal with that stuff.
  • 00:17:30.150 --> 00:17:32.150
  • Trust issues, I mean a lot of us have a hard time trusting
  • 00:17:33.280 --> 00:17:38.070
  • because we've been messed around so much.
  • 00:17:38.080 --> 00:17:41.160
  • We've been betrayed so much.
  • 00:17:41.170 --> 00:17:43.150
  • So, we're on this side.
  • 00:17:43.160 --> 00:17:49.210
  • Jesus is on the other side.
  • 00:17:49.220 --> 00:17:52.180
  • It's the wheelbarrow step.
  • 00:17:52.190 --> 00:17:55.180
  • We're in denial.
  • 00:17:55.190 --> 00:17:56.140
  • We blame, we're fearful.
  • 00:17:56.150 --> 00:17:59.000
  • We're not desperate enough.
  • 00:17:59.010 --> 00:18:01.100
  • So, we use these things, and we double down on our dysfunction
  • 00:18:01.110 --> 00:18:07.140
  • and when we double down on our dysfunction, it brings us
  • 00:18:07.150 --> 00:18:14.140
  • to our knee.
  • 00:18:14.150 --> 00:18:17.170
  • Maybe you're down on one knee, put the other knee down because
  • 00:18:17.180 --> 00:18:22.280
  • these things, these things will bring you to the bottom,
  • 00:18:22.290 --> 00:18:30.030
  • rock bottom.
  • 00:18:30.040 --> 00:18:32.240
  • And you might be saying, "Ed, I'm at rock bottom, man.
  • 00:18:32.250 --> 00:18:35.270
  • I'm, I'm sitting on the last row, the last seat in
  • 00:18:35.280 --> 00:18:41.180
  • the balcony up there, and I am at rock bottom."
  • 00:18:41.190 --> 00:18:45.090
  • Good.
  • 00:18:45.100 --> 00:18:47.250
  • You know why I say good?
  • 00:18:47.260 --> 00:18:49.100
  • Because if you're at rock bottom, now God can build a
  • 00:18:49.110 --> 00:18:54.200
  • foundation, and the rock is named Jesus in your life.
  • 00:18:54.210 --> 00:19:04.040
  • Number one, I'm powerless, God.
  • 00:19:04.050 --> 00:19:07.270
  • Number two, the second step, you're powerful.
  • 00:19:07.280 --> 00:19:12.160
  • You sent Jesus to die on the cross for my sins,
  • 00:19:12.170 --> 00:19:17.230
  • and I want to get into the wheelbarrow.
  • 00:19:17.240 --> 00:19:21.220
  • Ed: February 19 through the 20,
  • 00:19:23.020 --> 00:19:25.270
  • our Creative Church Conference is happening again.
  • 00:19:25.280 --> 00:19:29.020
  • Have you seen the speaking list?
  • 00:19:29.030 --> 00:19:31.130
  • Louis Giglio: God isn't just interested in getting you to do
  • 00:19:31.140 --> 00:19:33.170
  • something, he wants you to understand that he sees you
  • 00:19:33.180 --> 00:19:37.050
  • just like you are.
  • 00:19:37.060 --> 00:19:38.250
  • Randy Bezet: Get your eyes off the hazards in your life,
  • 00:19:38.260 --> 00:19:41.030
  • get your eyes on Jesus.
  • 00:19:41.040 --> 00:19:42.230
  • Ed: The gates of hell will not prevail against the church.
  • 00:19:42.240 --> 00:19:45.260
  • Phil Dooley: There are people out there who are gonna try to
  • 00:19:45.270 --> 00:19:48.010
  • take your hope from you, but you gotta hold on to it.
  • 00:19:48.020 --> 00:19:50.080
  • Ed: It will revolutionize your life.
  • 00:19:50.090 --> 00:19:53.000
  • Make sure that you are here for C3.
  • 00:19:53.010 --> 00:19:57.190
  • Ed: I wore this coat today.
  • 00:20:01.160 --> 00:20:03.040
  • You like this coat?
  • 00:20:03.050 --> 00:20:04.170
  • I do. I do.
  • 00:20:04.180 --> 00:20:05.180
  • I do.
  • 00:20:05.190 --> 00:20:07.010
  • I bought it and it was too big, and I had someone like tailor it
  • 00:20:07.020 --> 00:20:10.170
  • after I bought it.
  • 00:20:10.180 --> 00:20:12.030
  • It's cotton because I sweat a lot up here, lactating.
  • 00:20:12.040 --> 00:20:15.100
  • And what?
  • 00:20:15.110 --> 00:20:21.070
  • Anyway, I know I'm sweating like a pack mule but, all right.
  • 00:20:30.110 --> 00:20:40.050
  • This is a magic coat. It's magic.
  • 00:20:40.060 --> 00:20:42.280
  • And you might be thinking, okay, it's 100% cotton, which I like.
  • 00:20:42.290 --> 00:20:46.230
  • And normally I like to preach in it because I do perspire, and
  • 00:20:46.240 --> 00:20:50.030
  • it's not as hot as some of the other coats.
  • 00:20:50.040 --> 00:20:52.110
  • Some of the other coats, I'm drenched, okay?
  • 00:20:52.120 --> 00:20:55.250
  • But this coat is a magic coat, and this coat has a real strong
  • 00:20:55.260 --> 00:20:59.100
  • self will.
  • 00:20:59.110 --> 00:21:01.050
  • And when I bought it over there at last call, this coat is laced
  • 00:21:01.060 --> 00:21:05.050
  • with technology. Now, watch this.
  • 00:21:05.060 --> 00:21:09.180
  • Okay, hey coat, you won't believe this.
  • 00:21:09.190 --> 00:21:12.200
  • Lift your right arm please.
  • 00:21:12.210 --> 00:21:18.010
  • Listen, I said lift your right arm.
  • 00:21:19.220 --> 00:21:21.080
  • You've done it before, lift your right arm.
  • 00:21:21.090 --> 00:21:22.250
  • Use your determination and willpower, okay?
  • 00:21:22.260 --> 00:21:25.240
  • Left your right arm.
  • 00:21:25.250 --> 00:21:29.010
  • Pathetic.
  • 00:21:29.020 --> 00:21:32.220
  • Okay, now, coat, this is easy.
  • 00:21:32.230 --> 00:21:35.290
  • Stand at attention.
  • 00:21:36.000 --> 00:21:39.050
  • Watch this, works every time.
  • 00:21:39.060 --> 00:21:41.200
  • This coat I'm telling you with the technology and the
  • 00:21:41.210 --> 00:21:43.170
  • willpower, stand at attention, one, two, three.
  • 00:21:43.180 --> 00:21:50.070
  • It's pathetic, helpless and hopeless, this old coat.
  • 00:21:51.160 --> 00:21:58.060
  • But if I put the coat on, if I put the coat on,
  • 00:22:00.190 --> 00:22:10.190
  • when Jesus comes into my life when I admit that I'm helpless,
  • 00:22:17.020 --> 00:22:24.110
  • I can raise my right arm.
  • 00:22:24.120 --> 00:22:29.040
  • I can stand at attention.
  • 00:22:29.050 --> 00:22:33.110
  • I can get in the wheelbarrow, and he will give me true,
  • 00:22:33.120 --> 00:22:41.280
  • supernatural change.
  • 00:22:41.290 --> 00:22:46.150
  • I'm helpless.
  • 00:22:46.160 --> 00:22:48.100
  • I can't do a thing.
  • 00:22:48.110 --> 00:22:50.040
  • I'm like the coat. Have you admitted that?
  • 00:22:50.050 --> 00:22:53.180
  • Have you said, "Jesus, you're all about change"?
  • 00:22:53.190 --> 00:22:56.050
  • I mean, you're allowing these things to keep you from Jesus
  • 00:22:56.060 --> 00:23:02.240
  • when--get in, you say.
  • 00:23:02.250 --> 00:23:11.050
  • And we can take all the blocks.
  • 00:23:11.060 --> 00:23:20.170
  • Oh, turn over.
  • 00:23:28.150 --> 00:23:32.040
  • Have you done that, or are you still trying?
  • 00:23:32.050 --> 00:23:38.130
  • "Hey, I can do it, raise my right arm.
  • 00:23:38.140 --> 00:23:42.060
  • Stand at attention, I can do it."
  • 00:23:42.070 --> 00:23:46.030
  • You're building is on fire!
  • 00:23:46.040 --> 00:23:47.230
  • You're standing on a towering inferno!
  • 00:23:47.240 --> 00:23:54.050
  • I don't care how good looking you are, how smart you are, how
  • 00:23:54.060 --> 00:23:58.290
  • big you are, how bad you are, how rich you are, you're on
  • 00:23:59.000 --> 00:24:05.210
  • fire, man.
  • 00:24:05.220 --> 00:24:07.050
  • Get in the wheelbarrow.
  • 00:24:07.060 --> 00:24:12.230
  • Get in the wheelbarrow.
  • 00:24:12.240 --> 00:24:17.090
  • Jesus, my friend, has pushed the wheelbarrow up to you.
  • 00:24:17.100 --> 00:24:25.020
  • He's locked eyes with you.
  • 00:24:25.030 --> 00:24:27.020
  • He said, "I love you.
  • 00:24:27.030 --> 00:24:30.100
  • I've forgiven you.
  • 00:24:30.110 --> 00:24:31.230
  • I have a plan for you.
  • 00:24:31.240 --> 00:24:35.240
  • Get in."
  • 00:24:35.250 --> 00:24:39.020
  • Won't you do that?
  • 00:24:39.030 --> 00:24:41.280
  • Father, in the name that's above every name, thank you, Jesus,
  • 00:24:43.060 --> 00:24:46.110
  • for this time.
  • 00:24:46.120 --> 00:24:49.250
  • And I thank you for those here who've gotten into the
  • 00:24:49.260 --> 00:24:53.160
  • wheelbarrow and for those, God, who need to take and make that
  • 00:24:53.170 --> 00:24:58.290
  • step, you've taken down the wheelbarrow wall.
  • 00:24:59.000 --> 00:25:07.070
  • You bridge the gap for our sin.
  • 00:25:07.080 --> 00:25:12.000
  • Just say, "God, I can't change, I'm helpless.
  • 00:25:12.010 --> 00:25:17.090
  • But God, you can change because of the exchange and right now,
  • 00:25:17.100 --> 00:25:24.050
  • I put everything, all of my dysfunction,
  • 00:25:24.060 --> 00:25:29.230
