  • TO HAVE YOU IN THE HOUSE
  • 00:00:11.090 --> 00:00:12.030
  • OF THE LORD TODAY.
  • 00:00:12.030 --> 00:00:13.250
  • I WANT TO ENCOURAGE US ALL
  • 00:00:13.250 --> 00:00:15.120
  • THIS MORNING TO KEEP OUR
  • 00:00:15.140 --> 00:00:18.140
  • HEART FREE FROM OFFENSE.
  • 00:00:18.250 --> 00:00:21.250
  • OFFENSE IS EVERYWHERE.
  • 00:00:21.250 --> 00:00:24.000
  • JESUS SAID, "AS LONG AS
  • 00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:25.020
  • YOU'RE HERE,
  • 00:00:25.020 --> 00:00:25.260
  • OFFENSE WILL COME.".
  • 00:00:25.260 --> 00:00:27.170
  • AS LONG AS WE LIVE IN THIS
  • 00:00:27.170 --> 00:00:28.160
  • WORLD, SOMEONE'S GOING TO SAY
  • 00:00:28.160 --> 00:00:29.250
  • SOMETHING THAT WE DON'T
  • 00:00:29.250 --> 00:00:30.250
  • UNDERSTAND, SOMETHING
  • 00:00:30.250 --> 00:00:32.220
  • THAT HURTS OUR FEELINGS.
  • 00:00:32.220 --> 00:00:34.160
  • MAYBE YOUR HUSBAND DOESN'T
  • 00:00:34.160 --> 00:00:35.120
  • LISTEN TO YOUR OPINION.
  • 00:00:35.180 --> 00:00:38.180
  • THERE'S ALWAYS GOING TO BE
  • 00:00:38.180 --> 00:00:39.270
  • REASONS TO TAKE UP
  • 00:00:39.270 --> 00:00:41.210
  • AN OFFENSE, AN OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:00:41.210 --> 00:00:44.090
  • TO TAKE IT IN.
  • 00:00:44.090 --> 00:00:45.280
  • YOU KNOW, IT'S INTERESTING
  • 00:00:45.280 --> 00:00:47.260
  • BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, THE PEOPLE
  • 00:00:47.260 --> 00:00:49.070
  • THAT YOU'RE AROUND ARE ONE
  • 00:00:49.070 --> 00:00:51.200
  • THING, BUT HOW ABOUT THE
  • 00:00:51.200 --> 00:00:53.110
  • PEOPLE THAT YOU'VE NEVER EVEN
  • 00:00:53.110 --> 00:00:54.160
  • MET, AND YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN
  • 00:00:54.160 --> 00:00:56.080
  • BY THAT?
  • 00:00:56.080 --> 00:00:57.250
  • EVERYBODY'S OPINION
  • 00:00:57.250 --> 00:00:59.040
  • CAN GO PUBLIC THESE DAYS
  • 00:00:59.040 --> 00:01:00.140
  • ON SOCIAL MEDIA.
  • 00:01:00.140 --> 00:01:03.010
  • YOU BEGIN TO READ SOMEBODY'S
  • 00:01:03.010 --> 00:01:04.100
  • OPINION, YOU HEAR WHAT
  • 00:01:04.100 --> 00:01:05.280
  • THEY'RE RAILING AGAINST,
  • 00:01:05.280 --> 00:01:07.290
  • IT KIND OF FLUSTERS YOU.
  • 00:01:07.290 --> 00:01:09.130
  • YOU THINK,
  • 00:01:09.130 --> 00:01:09.280
  • "I DON'T AGREE WITH THAT.
  • 00:01:09.280 --> 00:01:10.220
  • WHY WOULD THEY SAY THAT?".
  • 00:01:10.220 --> 00:01:12.160
  • THEN YOU BEGIN GETTING
  • 00:01:12.160 --> 00:01:13.140
  • ALL UPSET.
  • 00:01:13.140 --> 00:01:14.280
  • YOU CALL YOUR BOTHER, AND
  • 00:01:14.280 --> 00:01:16.010
  • YOU CALL YOUR SISTER, YOU
  • 00:01:16.010 --> 00:01:16.270
  • CALL YOUR NEIGHBOR, "CAN YOU
  • 00:01:16.270 --> 00:01:17.270
  • BELIEVE THAT THEY THINK THAT?
  • 00:01:17.270 --> 00:01:20.020
  • ISN'T THAT CRAZY?".
  • 00:01:20.020 --> 00:01:22.190
  • YOU SEE, YOU BEGIN TO GET
  • 00:01:22.190 --> 00:01:24.040
  • FRUSTRATED AND UPSET, AND
  • 00:01:24.040 --> 00:01:26.120
  • SPEND ENERGY ON THAT OFFENSE,
  • 00:01:26.140 --> 00:01:29.140
  • ON THOSE THINGS THAT DON'T
  • 00:01:29.140 --> 00:01:30.160
  • REALLY EVEN MATTER.
  • 00:01:30.160 --> 00:01:32.270
  • YOU SEE, IT'S AS IF
  • 00:01:32.270 --> 00:01:34.200
  • SEE, WE CANNOT TAKE THE BAIT
  • 00:01:37.180 --> 00:01:40.180
  • OF OFFENSE AND LIVE
  • 00:01:40.180 --> 00:01:42.000
  • IN VICTORY, JOY, AND PEACE.
  • 00:01:42.000 --> 00:01:44.200
  • WE GOT TO LET IT GO.
  • 00:01:44.200 --> 00:01:46.220
  • WE CAN'T LET IT GET ON US.
  • 00:01:46.220 --> 00:01:48.190
  • WE CAN'T SWALLOW THE BAIT.
  • 00:01:48.190 --> 00:01:50.230
  • IN FACT, IN THE SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:01:50.230 --> 00:01:52.080
  • THE WORD "OFFENSE"
  • 00:01:52.080 --> 00:01:54.010
  • COMES FROM THE GREEK WORD
  • 00:01:54.010 --> 00:01:56.150
  • THAT MEANS BAIT.
  • 00:01:56.150 --> 00:01:59.000
  • IT WAS USED TO LURE ANIMALS
  • 00:01:59.000 --> 00:02:01.090
  • INTO A TRAP.
  • 00:02:01.090 --> 00:02:02.290
  • WAS WHAT GOT THE ANIMALS TO
  • 00:02:06.070 --> 00:02:07.280
  • COME ON IN AND TAKE THE BAIT,
  • 00:02:08.070 --> 00:02:11.070
  • AND SOMETIMES, THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:02:11.070 --> 00:02:12.090
  • HAPPENS TO US WITH OFFENSE.
  • 00:02:12.090 --> 00:02:14.090
  • IT LURES US RIGHT INTO
  • 00:02:14.090 --> 00:02:15.140
  • A TRAP.
  • 00:02:15.140 --> 00:02:17.040
  • WE GET CAUGHT UP
  • 00:02:17.040 --> 00:02:18.140
  • IN THIS CIRCLE OF OFFENSE,
  • 00:02:18.230 --> 00:02:21.230
  • IN THIS TRAP OF OFFENSE.
  • 00:02:21.230 --> 00:02:24.020
  • WE GET UPSET, WE GET
  • 00:02:24.020 --> 00:02:25.040
  • FRUSTRATED, WE GET BITTER
  • 00:02:25.040 --> 00:02:26.040
  • BECAUSE WE'VE SWALLOWED IT
  • 00:02:26.040 --> 00:02:28.070
  • HOOK, LINE, AND SINKER.
  • 00:02:28.070 --> 00:02:30.260
  • SO, WE SPEND OUR TIME TRYING
  • 00:02:30.260 --> 00:02:32.260
  • TO FIGURE OUT WHAT SOMEBODY
  • 00:02:32.260 --> 00:02:34.050
  • THAT'S A WASTE OF OUR TIME.
  • 00:02:38.150 --> 00:02:40.230
  • WHAT IN THE WORLD COULD BE
  • 00:02:40.230 --> 00:02:41.170
  • SO IMPORTANT THAT WE HAVE
  • 00:02:41.170 --> 00:02:43.240
  • TO TAKE OUR TIME TO
  • 00:02:43.240 --> 00:02:45.000
  • FIGURE IT ALL OUT?
  • 00:02:45.000 --> 00:02:46.180
  • WHAT IN THE WORLD COULD
  • 00:02:46.180 --> 00:02:47.160
  • SOMEONE SAY THAT WOULD BE
  • 00:02:47.160 --> 00:02:50.010
  • THAT IMPORTANT TO YOUR
  • 00:02:50.010 --> 00:02:51.100
  • DESTINY IF IT'S OFFENSIVE
  • 00:02:51.100 --> 00:02:53.210
  • TO YOU?
  • 00:02:53.210 --> 00:02:55.160
  • NOW, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:02:55.160 --> 00:02:56.130
  • WE TAKE UP OFFENSE SOMETIMES
  • 00:02:56.130 --> 00:02:57.160
  • WHEN NO ONE REALLY MEANS
  • 00:02:57.160 --> 00:02:58.260
  • ANYTHING, AND THAT'S A WHOLE
  • 00:02:58.260 --> 00:03:00.170
  • 'NOTHER SUBJECT, BUT WE'RE
  • 00:03:00.170 --> 00:03:02.100
  • TALKING TODAY ABOUT THINKING
  • 00:03:02.100 --> 00:03:03.210
  • TWICE ABOUT ANY OFFENSE,
  • 00:03:03.210 --> 00:03:06.180
  • ANY OFFENSE.
  • 00:03:06.180 --> 00:03:07.190
  • WE GOT TO RECOGNIZE WHAT'S
  • 00:03:07.190 --> 00:03:08.260
  • HAPPENING WHEN WE'RE
  • 00:03:08.260 --> 00:03:10.120
  • FRUSTRATED AND WHEN
  • 00:03:10.120 --> 00:03:11.260
  • WE'RE GOING IN THE CIRCLE
  • 00:03:11.260 --> 00:03:13.040
  • OF OFFENSE, AND WE'VE GOT
  • 00:03:13.040 --> 00:03:14.190
  • TO LEARN TO DROP IT
  • 00:03:14.190 --> 00:03:16.220
  • AND LET IT GO.
  • 00:03:16.220 --> 00:03:18.030
  • SEE, THE QUICKER WE LET GO
  • 00:03:18.030 --> 00:03:19.200
  • OF OFFENSE, THE MORE FREE
  • 00:03:19.200 --> 00:03:21.080
  • THE OTHER DAY, I WAS CLEANING
  • 00:03:24.000 --> 00:03:25.160
  • A SPOT OFF OF MY CARPET,
  • 00:03:25.160 --> 00:03:27.240
  • SO I WENT AND GOT
  • 00:03:27.240 --> 00:03:28.140
  • SOME CARPET SPOT REMOVER.
  • 00:03:28.140 --> 00:03:30.230
  • I LOOKED ON THE BACK TO SEE
  • 00:03:30.230 --> 00:03:31.290
  • WHAT THE INSTRUCTIONS SAID
  • 00:03:31.290 --> 00:03:33.100
  • ABOUT IT, AND IT SAID GET
  • 00:03:33.100 --> 00:03:34.260
  • THE SPOT OFF AS QUICKLY
  • 00:03:34.260 --> 00:03:36.090
  • AS YOU CAN.
  • 00:03:36.090 --> 00:03:37.210
  • WHY?
  • 00:03:37.210 --> 00:03:38.160
  • BECAUSE THE LONGER THAT
  • 00:03:38.160 --> 00:03:39.150
  • SPOT'S THERE, THE HARDER IT
  • 00:03:39.150 --> 00:03:40.280
  • IS TO REMOVE, AND SEE, THAT'S
  • 00:03:40.280 --> 00:03:43.040
  • IF YOU HAVE A STAIN OF
  • 00:03:45.280 --> 00:03:47.110
  • OFFENSE ON YOUR HEART, THE
  • 00:03:47.110 --> 00:03:49.050
  • LONGER YOU ALLOW IT TO BE
  • 00:03:49.050 --> 00:03:51.080
  • THERE, THE HARDER IT'S GOING
  • 00:03:51.080 --> 00:03:53.140
  • TO TAKE TO GET RID OF IT.
  • 00:03:53.140 --> 00:03:55.080
  • SEE, BUT THE SOONER YOU LET
  • 00:03:55.080 --> 00:03:57.030
  • IT GO, THE BETTER OFF
  • 00:03:57.030 --> 00:03:58.160
  • YOU'LL BE.
  • 00:03:58.160 --> 00:04:00.030
  • DON'T GO HOUR BY HOUR,
  • 00:04:00.030 --> 00:04:02.010
  • DAY TO DAY TRYING
  • 00:04:02.010 --> 00:04:03.200
  • TO FIGURE IT ALL OUT.
  • 00:04:03.200 --> 00:04:05.160
  • IT'S NOT THAT IMPORTANT.
  • 00:04:05.160 --> 00:04:07.050
  • IF IT'S OFFENDED YOU,
  • 00:04:07.050 --> 00:04:08.190
  • PROVERBS 19:11 SAYS,
  • 00:04:11.180 --> 00:04:14.140
  • "GOOD SENSE MAKES ONE SLOW
  • 00:04:14.140 --> 00:04:16.150
  • TO ANGER, AND IT IS
  • 00:04:16.150 --> 00:04:18.000
  • TO ONE'S GLORY TO OVERLOOK
  • 00:04:18.000 --> 00:04:19.270
  • AN OFFENSE.".
  • 00:04:19.270 --> 00:04:22.000
  • GOOD SENSE MAKES ONE SLOW TO
  • 00:04:22.000 --> 00:04:23.170
  • ANGER, AND IT'S TO OUR GLORY
  • 00:04:24.050 --> 00:04:27.050
  • TO OVERLOOK AN OFFENSE.
  • 00:04:27.050 --> 00:04:29.260
  • YOU SEE, IT'S TO OUR GOOD.
  • 00:04:29.260 --> 00:04:31.270
  • IT DOES US NO GOOD TO GO
  • 00:04:31.270 --> 00:04:33.200
  • AROUND OFFENDED,
  • 00:04:33.200 --> 00:04:35.100
  • ALLOWING THAT TO TAKE ROOT
  • 00:04:35.100 --> 00:04:36.280
  • IN OUR HEART.
  • 00:04:36.280 --> 00:04:38.280
  • SEE, IF WE'LL GET GOOD AT
  • 00:04:38.280 --> 00:04:40.030
  • OVERLOOKING OFFENSE,
  • 00:04:40.030 --> 00:04:41.180
  • WE'RE GOING TO LIVE A MORE
  • 00:04:41.180 --> 00:04:42.170
  • SATISFIED AND HAPPY LIFE.
  • 00:04:42.170 --> 00:04:45.160
  • JESUS WAS NO STRANGER
  • 00:04:45.160 --> 00:04:47.010
  • TO OFFENSE.
  • 00:04:47.010 --> 00:04:48.150
  • PEOPLE WERE CONSTANTLY TRYING
  • 00:04:48.150 --> 00:04:50.170
  • TO TRAP HIM INTO OFFENSE.
  • 00:04:50.170 --> 00:04:52.270
  • IT SAYS IN 2 PETER THAT
  • 00:04:52.270 --> 00:04:54.040
  • THEY HURLED INSULTS AT HIM.
  • 00:04:54.040 --> 00:04:56.140
  • YOU KNOW WHAT HE DID?
  • 00:04:56.140 --> 00:04:57.150
  • IT SAYS HE ENTRUSTED HIMSELF
  • 00:04:57.150 --> 00:05:00.150
  • TO THE ONE WHO JUDGES JUSTLY.
  • 00:05:01.050 --> 00:05:04.050
  • HE DIDN'T ENTRUST HIS LIFE,
  • 00:05:04.050 --> 00:05:06.230
  • HE DIDN'T GIVE HIS LIFE,
  • 00:05:07.040 --> 00:05:10.040
  • HIS WAYS TO SOME OPINION,
  • 00:05:10.160 --> 00:05:13.160
  • FALSE ACCUSATIONS.
  • 00:05:13.160 --> 00:05:16.090
  • HE ENTRUSTED HIS LIFE TO THE
  • 00:05:16.090 --> 00:05:18.170
  • ONE WHO WAS IN CONTROL OF
  • 00:05:18.170 --> 00:05:20.150
  • HIS LIFE, THE ONE WHO COULD
  • 00:05:20.150 --> 00:05:22.160
  • JUDGE JUSTLY.
  • 00:05:22.160 --> 00:05:24.280
  • THAT'S WHERE HE FOUND
  • 00:05:24.280 --> 00:05:25.290
  • HIS RESOLVE.
  • 00:05:25.290 --> 00:05:27.130
  • HE FOUND IT BY KNOWING OTHER
  • 00:05:27.170 --> 00:05:30.170
  • PEOPLE'S OPINIONS, WHETHER
  • 00:05:30.170 --> 00:05:32.130
  • THEY MEAN IT OR NOT,
  • 00:05:32.130 --> 00:05:34.000
  • DON'T HAVE TO AFFECT HIM.
  • 00:05:34.000 --> 00:05:36.260
  • YOU SEE, WE'RE ALL GOING
  • 00:05:36.260 --> 00:05:38.080
  • TO HAVE TO LEARN HOW
  • 00:05:38.080 --> 00:05:39.230
  • TO LET GO OF OFFENSE,
  • 00:05:39.230 --> 00:05:41.220
  • AND IT IS A PROCESS.
  • 00:05:41.220 --> 00:05:43.160
  • WE'RE ALL GOING TO LEARN--
  • 00:05:43.160 --> 00:05:44.200
  • THE APOSTLE PAUL,
  • 00:05:44.200 --> 00:05:46.200
  • IN 2 TIMOTHY 14:4,
  • 00:05:46.200 --> 00:05:49.200
  • HAD TO WORK AT KEEPING
  • 00:05:49.200 --> 00:05:50.220
  • OFFENSE OFF OF HIM AS WELL.
  • 00:05:50.220 --> 00:05:53.070
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:05:53.070 --> 00:05:53.280
  • "ALEXANDER THE COPPERSMITH
  • 00:05:53.280 --> 00:05:55.070
  • DID ME A GREAT WRONG,
  • 00:05:55.070 --> 00:05:57.280
  • BUT GOD WILL JUDGE HIM.
  • 00:05:57.280 --> 00:05:59.270
  • GOD WILL TAKE CARE
  • 00:05:59.270 --> 00:06:00.230
  • OF WHAT HE'S DONE."
  • 00:06:00.230 --> 00:06:03.000
  • YOU SEE, HE GAVE IT TO GOD.
  • 00:06:03.000 --> 00:06:05.140
  • HE WASN'T TAKING THE
  • 00:06:05.140 --> 00:06:06.190
  • RESPONSIBILITY ON HIMSELF
  • 00:06:06.190 --> 00:06:09.050
  • TO BE THE JUDGE AND JURY
  • 00:06:09.050 --> 00:06:10.200
  • OF EVERYONE'S OPINION.
  • 00:06:10.200 --> 00:06:12.220
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:06:12.220 --> 00:06:13.130
  • "I'M GIVING IT TO GOD.
  • 00:06:13.130 --> 00:06:15.170
  • I HAVE THINGS TO DO.
  • 00:06:15.170 --> 00:06:17.090
  • I CAN'T WALK AROUND WITH
  • 00:06:17.090 --> 00:06:18.100
  • AN OFFENDED HEART.
  • 00:06:18.100 --> 00:06:20.140
  • I CAN'T WALK AROUND
  • 00:06:20.140 --> 00:06:21.100
  • WITH BITTERNESS AND ANGER,
  • 00:06:21.100 --> 00:06:22.240
  • AND EXPECT TO BE EVERYTHING
  • 00:06:22.240 --> 00:06:24.150
  • GOD CALLED ME TO BE.".
  • 00:06:24.150 --> 00:06:26.190
  • SEE, WE NEED TO HAVE
  • 00:06:26.190 --> 00:06:27.150
  • THAT KIND OF ATTITUDE.
  • 00:06:27.150 --> 00:06:29.190
  • WE NEED TO TURN THE SITUATION
  • 00:06:29.190 --> 00:06:31.250
  • AROUND LIKE PAUL DID,
  • 00:06:31.250 --> 00:06:33.140
  • AND TURN IT OVER TO GOD.
  • 00:06:33.140 --> 00:06:35.160
  • OFFENSE WILL SHOW UP,
  • 00:06:35.160 --> 00:06:37.100
  • IT'S JUST HOW ARE WE GOING
  • 00:06:37.100 --> 00:06:38.230
  • TO HANDLE THAT OFFENSE
  • 00:06:38.230 --> 00:06:39.240
  • WHEN IT SHOWS UP?
  • 00:06:39.240 --> 00:06:41.030
  • IT'S GOING TO BE THERE.
  • 00:06:41.030 --> 00:06:42.070
  • I CAN TELL YOU IT'S GOING
  • 00:06:42.070 --> 00:06:43.020

  • 00:06:47.230 --> 00:06:48.210
  • BITE OF FOOD IN YOUR MOUTH,
  • 00:06:48.210 --> 00:06:50.150
  • MAYBE YOU'RE GOING TO TRY
  • 00:06:50.150 --> 00:06:51.130
  • SOMETHING NEW, AND IT WAS
  • 00:06:51.130 --> 00:06:52.220
  • LIKE, "EUGH, I DON'T LIKE THE
  • 00:06:52.220 --> 00:06:53.290
  • WAY IT TASTES," AND YOU HAVE
  • 00:06:53.290 --> 00:06:55.170
  • TO STOP FOR A MINUTE,
  • 00:06:55.170 --> 00:06:56.230
  • AND YOU'RE THINKING,
  • 00:06:56.230 --> 00:06:58.000
  • "WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?
  • 00:06:58.000 --> 00:06:59.080
  • AM I GOING TO SPIT IT OUT,
  • 00:06:59.080 --> 00:07:00.270
  • OR AM I GOING TO SWALLOW IT?",
  • 00:07:00.270 --> 00:07:02.200
  • AND YOU'RE THINKING,
  • 00:07:02.200 --> 00:07:03.170
  • YOU KNOW, "WHAT DO I DO?
  • 00:07:03.170 --> 00:07:05.010
  • I MEAN, WHO AM I WITH?".
  • 00:07:05.010 --> 00:07:06.210
  • YOU'RE JUST THINKING, RIGHT,
  • 00:07:06.210 --> 00:07:07.230
  • A LOT OF THIS STUFF.
  • 00:07:07.230 --> 00:07:09.140
  • I HAVE LITERALLY DONE THAT,
  • 00:07:09.140 --> 00:07:10.240
  • AND TAKEN MY NAPKIN AND WENT,
  • 00:07:10.240 --> 00:07:11.280
  • ...
  • 00:07:11.280 --> 00:07:13.250
  • "I KNOW THAT'S NOT VERY
  • 00:07:13.250 --> 00:07:14.160
  • LADYLIKE.".
  • 00:07:14.160 --> 00:07:15.200
  • BUT IF THERE'S SOMETHING
  • 00:07:15.200 --> 00:07:16.220
  • THAT'S ICKY IN YOUR MOUTH AND
  • 00:07:16.220 --> 00:07:18.060
  • YOU DON'T WANT TO SWALLOW IT,
  • 00:07:18.060 --> 00:07:19.140
  • THAT'S KIND OF WHAT YOU NEED
  • 00:07:19.140 --> 00:07:20.040
  • TO DO IS SPIT IT OUT.
  • 00:07:20.040 --> 00:07:22.200
  • IF YOU EVER TASTE THE
  • 00:07:22.200 --> 00:07:24.250
  • BITTERNESS OF OFFENSE, THAT
  • 00:07:24.250 --> 00:07:27.040
  • YUCKY FEELING IN YOUR MOUTH,
  • 00:07:27.040 --> 00:07:29.220
  • DON'T SWALLOW IT.
  • 00:07:29.220 --> 00:07:31.110
  • JUST SPIT IT OUT
  • 00:07:31.110 --> 00:07:32.060
  • IN YOUR NAPKIN.
  • 00:07:32.060 --> 00:07:33.230
  • DON'T LET IT GO DOWN
  • 00:07:33.230 --> 00:07:35.080
  • IN YOUR INNERMOST PARTS.
  • 00:07:35.080 --> 00:07:37.220
  • WE'VE GOT TO TAKE A MOMENT
  • 00:07:37.220 --> 00:07:39.250
  • AND THINK TWICE ABOUT
  • 00:07:39.250 --> 00:07:42.050
  • TAKING UP OFFENSE.
  • 00:07:42.050 --> 00:07:43.240
  • IS IT GOING TO BENEFIT YOU
  • 00:07:43.240 --> 00:07:44.250
  • ANY?
  • 00:07:44.250 --> 00:07:46.080
  • IS IT GOING TO MAKE YOUR LIFE
  • 00:07:46.080 --> 00:07:47.050
  • BETTER?
  • 00:07:47.050 --> 00:07:48.080
  • IS IT GOING TO MAKE YOU
  • 00:07:48.080 --> 00:07:49.040
  • MORE HAPPY, MORE JOYFUL?
  • 00:07:49.040 --> 00:07:50.250
  • SEE, YOU MAY BE WINDING UP
  • 00:07:50.250 --> 00:07:52.060
  • A CO-WORKER LEAVES YOU OUT
  • 00:07:54.170 --> 00:07:55.190
  • OF AN IMPORTANT MEETING.
  • 00:07:55.190 --> 00:07:57.060
  • YOU HAVE TILL 4:15 TO DECIDE
  • 00:07:57.060 --> 00:07:58.290
  • IF YOU'RE GOING TO TAKE THAT
  • 00:07:58.290 --> 00:08:00.220
  • OFFENSE.
  • 00:08:00.220 --> 00:08:02.110
  • ARE YOU GOING TO SPIT THAT
  • 00:08:02.110 --> 00:08:03.070
  • OFFENSE IN YOUR NAPKIN,
  • 00:08:03.070 --> 00:08:04.220
  • OR ARE YOU GOING TO TAKE IT
  • 00:08:04.220 --> 00:08:05.210
  • HOME WITH YOU?
  • 00:08:05.210 --> 00:08:07.040
  • ARE YOU GOING TO LET IT
  • 00:08:07.040 --> 00:08:08.010
  • UPSET YOUR WHOLE DAY?
  • 00:08:08.010 --> 00:08:09.260
  • ARE YOU GOING TO LET IT
  • 00:08:09.260 --> 00:08:11.050
  • DISTURB THE PEACE
  • 00:08:11.050 --> 00:08:12.130
  • IN YOUR HOME?
  • 00:08:12.130 --> 00:08:13.280
  • WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO
  • 00:08:13.280 --> 00:08:15.000
  • WITH THAT OFFENSE?
  • 00:08:15.000 --> 00:08:16.150
  • WE GOT TO LEARN TO STEP BACK
  • 00:08:16.150 --> 00:08:17.190
  • AND THINK TWICE ABOUT
  • 00:08:17.190 --> 00:08:18.290
  • TAKING AN OFFENSE.
  • 00:08:19.020 --> 00:08:22.020
  • IN JOHN 10, THE SCRIPTURE
  • 00:08:22.020 --> 00:08:23.190
  • TELLS US THAT THERE WERE
  • 00:08:23.190 --> 00:08:25.200
  • CERTAIN PEOPLE IN THE CROWDS
  • 00:08:25.200 --> 00:08:27.100
  • WHEN JESUS WOULD GO PLACES
  • 00:08:27.100 --> 00:08:28.170
  • THAT WANTED TO CAPTURE HIM.
  • 00:08:28.170 --> 00:08:31.020
  • THEY WANTED TO SEIZE
  • 00:08:31.020 --> 00:08:31.290
  • HIS LIFE.
  • 00:08:31.290 --> 00:08:33.060
  • THEY WANTED TO TAKE HIM
  • 00:08:33.060 --> 00:08:34.110
  • AND STONE HIM.
  • 00:08:34.110 --> 00:08:35.250
  • THERE WAS CERTAIN PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:08:35.250 --> 00:08:37.150
  • WERE ALWAYS TRYING TO STIR UP
  • 00:08:37.150 --> 00:08:39.160
  • TROUBLE.
  • 00:08:39.160 --> 00:08:42.020
  • BUT THERE'S SUCH AN IMPORTANT
  • 00:08:42.020 --> 00:08:43.100
  • THING THAT IT SAYS THAT JESUS
  • 00:08:43.100 --> 00:08:44.230
  • DID, AND I'VE ALWAYS KIND OF
  • 00:08:44.230 --> 00:08:46.060
  • WONDERED WHAT IT SAID, AND
  • 00:08:46.060 --> 00:08:47.190
  • THE OTHER DAY WHEN I READ IT,
  • 00:08:47.190 --> 00:08:48.220
  • I THOUGHT,
  • 00:08:48.220 --> 00:08:49.170
  • "COULD THIS MEAN?".
  • 00:08:49.170 --> 00:08:51.270
  • IT SAYS THAT JESUS WOULD SLIP
  • 00:08:52.210 --> 00:08:55.210
  • OUT OF THE CROWD AND GO ON
  • 00:08:55.210 --> 00:08:57.110
  • HIS WAY, AND I THOUGHT ABOUT
  • 00:08:57.110 --> 00:08:59.140
  • THAT JUST A MINUTE.
  • 00:08:59.140 --> 00:09:00.150
  • HERE'S SOME PEOPLE IN THE
  • 00:09:00.150 --> 00:09:01.140
  • CROWD THAT WERE TRYING TO
  • 00:09:01.140 --> 00:09:02.130
  • SEIZE HIM AND TRAP HIM,
  • 00:09:02.130 --> 00:09:03.280
  • BUT HE, LIKE, SLIPPED AWAY
  • 00:09:03.280 --> 00:09:06.110
  • AND MOVED ON,
  • 00:09:06.110 --> 00:09:08.110
  • AND I THOUGHT ABOUT,
  • 00:09:08.110 --> 00:09:10.000
  • YOU KNOW WHAT JESUS DID?
  • 00:09:10.000 --> 00:09:11.220
  • HE WASN'T PLAYING HOUDINI.
  • 00:09:11.220 --> 00:09:13.150
  • HE WASN'T BEING SOME
  • 00:09:13.150 --> 00:09:14.110
  • MAGIC MAN.
  • 00:09:14.110 --> 00:09:16.230
  • HE DIDN'T GIVE INTO
  • 00:09:16.230 --> 00:09:18.030
  • THEIR OPINIONS.
  • 00:09:18.030 --> 00:09:19.100
  • HE DIDN'T GO TRY TO DEFEND
  • 00:09:19.100 --> 00:09:20.060
  • HIMSELF.
  • 00:09:20.060 --> 00:09:21.100
  • HE DIDN'T SAY,
  • 00:09:23.120 --> 00:09:23.290
  • "PETER AND JOHN,
  • 00:09:23.290 --> 00:09:25.020
  • WHY ARE THEY BEING
  • 00:09:25.020 --> 00:09:25.210
  • SO UNFAIR?
  • 00:09:25.210 --> 00:09:26.170
  • WILL YOU GO OVER THERE
  • 00:09:26.170 --> 00:09:27.100
  • AND TALK TO THOSE PEOPLE?".
  • 00:09:27.100 --> 00:09:29.160
  • NO, HE IGNORED THE OPINIONS
  • 00:09:29.160 --> 00:09:32.070
  • OF OTHERS, AND HE MOVED ON
  • 00:09:32.070 --> 00:09:34.130
  • HIS WAY.
  • 00:09:34.130 --> 00:09:35.120
  • HE LITERALLY SLIPPED THROUGH
  • 00:09:35.120 --> 00:09:36.210
  • THE FINGERS OF OFFENSE
  • 00:09:36.210 --> 00:09:39.000
  • YOU SEE, NOBODY CAPTURED
  • 00:09:40.280 --> 00:09:42.070
  • JESUS' LIFE.
  • 00:09:42.070 --> 00:09:44.140
  • NOBODY COULD CAPTURE HIM.
  • 00:09:44.140 --> 00:09:47.030
  • JESUS GAVE HIS LIFE.
  • 00:09:47.060 --> 00:09:50.060
  • HE MADE THE DECISION
  • 00:09:50.060 --> 00:09:51.150
  • TO LAY IT DOWN.
  • 00:09:51.150 --> 00:09:52.190
  • HE DIDN'T ALLOW ANYBODY
  • 00:09:52.190 --> 00:09:54.080
  • TO CHANGE THE COURSE
  • 00:09:54.080 --> 00:09:55.080
  • OF HIS DESTINY BY OFFENSE,
  • 00:09:55.080 --> 00:09:57.240
  • BY INSULTS.
  • 00:09:57.240 --> 00:09:59.120
  • HE SAID, "NO, I'VE GOT AN

  • HOLD OUR HEAD UP HIGH, NOT
  • 00:16:05.030 --> 00:16:06.190
  • BECAUSE WE'RE PERFECT, NOT
  • 00:16:06.190 --> 00:16:08.160
  • BECAUSE WE'VE NEVER MADE
  • 00:16:08.160 --> 00:16:09.190
  • MISTAKES, BUT BECAUSE
  • 00:16:09.190 --> 00:16:11.030
  • OF WHO OUR FATHER IS,
  • 00:16:11.030 --> 00:16:12.190
  • BECAUSE WE ARE CHILDREN

  • THE ENEMY IS CALLED THE

  • HE'D LOVE TO JUST KEEP
  • 00:16:23.030 --> 00:16:23.230
  • PUSHING YOU DOWN.
  • 00:16:23.230 --> 00:16:24.220
  • "HEY, YOU CAME TO CHURCH
  • 00:16:24.220 --> 00:16:25.150
  • TODAY, BUT YOU MADE A MISTAKE
  • 00:16:25.150 --> 00:16:26.210
  • 22 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:16:26.210 --> 00:16:28.070
  • YOU REMEMBER THAT?"
  • 00:16:28.070 --> 00:16:29.110
  • YOU GOT TO LET ALL THAT GO.
  • 00:16:29.110 --> 00:16:30.230
  • SAY, "GOD, THE MOMENT YOU
  • 00:16:30.230 --> 00:16:31.270
  • FORGAVE ME," GOD NOT ONLY
  • 00:16:31.270 --> 00:16:33.220
  • FORGAVE YOU, BUT HE DOESN'T
  • 00:16:33.220 --> 00:16:36.060
  • REMEMBER YOUR SINS ANYMORE.
  • 00:16:36.060 --> 00:16:38.170
  • SOMEBODY'S BRINGING UP THE
  • 00:16:38.170 --> 00:16:39.230
  • NEGATIVE THINGS OF YOUR PAST,
  • 00:16:39.230 --> 00:16:41.060
  • THAT'S NOT GOD.
  • 00:16:41.060 --> 00:16:42.140
  • THAT'S THE ENEMY TRYING TO
  • 00:16:42.140 --> 00:16:43.130
  • GET YOU TO LIVE DEFEATED
  • 00:16:43.130 --> 00:16:45.150
  • AND DEPRESSED.
  • 00:16:45.150 --> 00:16:46.080
  • YOU JUST GOT TO SHAKE IT OFF
  • 00:16:46.080 --> 00:16:47.150
  • AND SAY, "HEY, I DIDN'T
  • 00:16:47.150 --> 00:16:48.120
  • DESERVE IT, BUT THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:16:48.120 --> 00:16:49.160
  • MERCY IS ALL ABOUT.
  • 00:16:49.160 --> 00:16:50.170
  • THAT'S THE GOODNESS
  • 00:16:50.170 --> 00:16:51.030
  • EVERY DAY, HIS MERCY IS FRESH
  • 00:16:52.200 --> 00:16:53.160
  • AND NEW."
  • 00:16:53.250 --> 00:16:56.250
  • SO, GET THIS DOWN
  • 00:16:56.250 --> 00:16:57.170
  • IN YOUR SPIRIT, 2017,
  • 00:16:57.170 --> 00:16:59.110
  • A YEAR OF YES FOR YOU.
  • 00:16:59.110 --> 00:17:01.130
  • YES TO HEALING,
  • 00:17:01.130 --> 00:17:02.130
  • "WELL, I'VE HAD A LOT OF NO'S
  • 00:17:04.160 --> 00:17:05.070
  • IN THE PAST, JOEL."
  • 00:17:05.070 --> 00:17:06.100
  • WELL, LET'S BELIEVE 2017,
  • 00:17:06.100 --> 00:17:08.190
  • SOME NO'S WILL TURN AROUND
  • 00:17:08.190 --> 00:17:09.260
  • AND TURN INTO YES'S.
  • 00:17:09.260 --> 00:17:11.260
  • GOD WANTS TO DO SOME
  • 00:17:11.260 --> 00:17:12.160
  • NEW THINGS IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:17:12.160 --> 00:17:14.000
  • AND BEFORE WE PRAY, JUST
  • 00:17:14.000 --> 00:17:15.160
  • REMEMBER THIS SCRIPTURE
  • 00:17:15.160 --> 00:17:16.280
  • IN PSALM, I THINK IT'S 112.
  • 00:17:16.280 --> 00:17:19.000
  • "WHEN DARKNESS OVERTAKES
  • 00:17:19.000 --> 00:17:20.140
  • THE RIGHTEOUS, LIGHT WILL COME
  • 00:17:20.140 --> 00:17:22.140
  • BURSTING IN."
  • 00:17:22.140 --> 00:17:24.110
  • SO, WHEN YOU GO THROUGH
  • 00:17:24.110 --> 00:17:25.090
  • DARK TIMES, DON'T FALL APART.
  • 00:17:25.090 --> 00:17:26.180
  • "OH MAN, THIS MEDICAL REPORT,
  • 00:17:26.180 --> 00:17:29.070
  • I DON'T THINK IT'S EVER GOING
  • 00:17:29.070 --> 00:17:30.070
  • TO CHANGE IN MY FINANCES."
  • 00:17:30.070 --> 00:17:31.220
  • THE RIGHT ATTITUDE IS, "YES,
  • 00:17:31.220 --> 00:17:33.060
  • IT'S DIFFICULT, BUT I KNOW
  • 00:17:33.060 --> 00:17:34.240
  • LIGHT IS ABOUT TO COME
  • 00:17:34.240 --> 00:17:36.140
  • BURSTING IN.
  • 00:17:36.140 --> 00:17:37.120
  • IN OTHER WORDS, THE MEDICAL
  • 00:17:37.120 --> 00:17:39.000
  • REPORT WASN'T TOO GOOD THIS
  • 00:17:39.000 --> 00:17:40.120
  • WEEK, BUT I'M NOT WORRIED.
  • 00:17:40.120 --> 00:17:41.250
  • I KNOW HEALTH IS ABOUT
  • 00:17:41.250 --> 00:17:43.040
  • TO COME BURSTING IN.
  • 00:17:43.040 --> 00:17:45.020
  • WELL, I'VE BEEN IN DEBT A
  • 00:17:45.020 --> 00:17:46.070
  • LONG TIME, STRUGGLING IN MY
  • 00:17:46.070 --> 00:17:47.060
  • FINANCES, BUT I KNOW
  • 00:17:47.060 --> 00:17:48.150
  • ABUNDANCE IS ABOUT TO COME
  • 00:17:48.150 --> 00:17:49.250
  • BURSTING IN."
  • 00:17:49.250 --> 00:17:51.160
  • SEE, SOMETIMES WE USE
  • 00:17:51.160 --> 00:17:53.020
  • OUR FAITH IN REVERSE.
  • 00:17:53.020 --> 00:17:54.250
  • WE KIND OF BELIEVE FOR THE
  • 00:17:54.250 --> 00:17:55.230
  • NEGATIVE, "WELL, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:17:55.230 --> 00:17:56.220
  • I DON'T THINK IT'S EVER GOING
  • 00:17:56.220 --> 00:17:57.160
  • TO WORK OUT.
  • 00:17:57.160 --> 00:17:58.190
  • AND I'LL NEVER GET THAT HOUSE
  • 00:17:58.190 --> 00:17:59.100
  • I'M DREAMING ABOUT.
  • 00:17:59.100 --> 00:18:00.130
  • I'LL NEVER BE FREE
  • 00:18:00.130 --> 00:18:01.060
  • FROM THIS ADDICTION."
  • 00:18:01.060 --> 00:18:02.130
  • THAT'S USING YOUR FAITH
  • 00:18:02.130 --> 00:18:03.130
  • IN THE WRONG DIRECTION.
  • 00:18:03.130 --> 00:18:05.030
  • I SAID IT EARLIER, TAKES JUST
  • 00:18:05.030 --> 00:18:06.160
  • AS MUCH ENERGY TO BELIEVE
  • 00:18:06.160 --> 00:18:08.150
  • AS IT DOES TO BE NEGATIVE.
  • 00:18:08.150 --> 00:18:10.160
  • INSTEAD OF THINKING THAT WAY,
  • 00:18:10.160 --> 00:18:11.110
  • "YEAH, I'VE HAD THIS
  • 00:18:11.110 --> 00:18:12.140
  • ADDICTION, BUT I KNOW
  • 00:18:12.140 --> 00:18:13.220
  • IT'S ABOUT TO TURN AROUND.
  • 00:18:13.220 --> 00:18:15.090
  • I'M EXPECTING GOD TO OPEN
  • 00:18:15.090 --> 00:18:16.140
  • SOME NEW DOORS.
  • 00:18:16.140 --> 00:18:17.290
  • I'M EXPECTING FREEDOM
  • 00:18:17.290 --> 00:18:19.150
  • FROM THIS ADDICTION."
  • 00:18:19.150 --> 00:18:20.280
  • GOD MEETS US AT THE LEVEL
  • 00:18:20.280 --> 00:18:21.280
  • OF OUR EXPECTATION.
  • 00:18:21.280 --> 00:18:23.040
  • SO, IT'S REAL SIMPLE.
  • 00:18:23.040 --> 00:18:24.010
  • LET'S BE BELIEVERS
  • 00:18:24.010 --> 00:18:25.230
  • AND NOT DOUBTERS.
  • 00:18:25.230 --> 00:18:27.040
  • YOU MAY NOT SEE A WAY,
  • 00:18:27.040 --> 00:18:28.140
  • BUT GOD HAS A WAY.
  • 00:18:28.140 --> 00:18:29.280
  • HE CAN GET YOU TO WHERE
  • 00:18:29.280 --> 00:18:30.280
  • YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE, AMEN?

  • HOW MANY OF YOU KNOW 2017
  • 00:18:32.130 --> 00:18:33.090
  • IS YOUR YEAR OF YES?
  • 00:18:33.090 --> 00:18:35.080
  • YOU'RE BELIEVING, EXPECTING,
  • 00:18:35.080 --> 00:18:38.020
  • AND I DECLARE YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:18:38.020 --> 00:18:38.290
  • TO SEE IT COME TO PASS.
  • 00:18:38.290 --> 00:18:41.180
  • WELL, LET'S TAKE A MOMENT
  • 00:18:41.180 --> 00:18:42.160
  • TO PRAY TODAY.
