  • your faithfulness and generosity have helped "Leading The Way"
  • 00:00:48.250 --> 00:00:52.050
  • take the light of Christ

  • into some of the darkest places on the globe.

  • As we seek to finish 2019 strong,
  • 00:00:56.170 --> 00:00:59.050
  • Dr. Youssef and Leading The Way

  • 00:01:17.050 --> 00:01:18.140
  • ministry friends have committed to give $2.

  • You can call, write, or visit us online at ltw.org.
  • 00:01:41.120 --> 00:01:46.190
  • 00:01:48.060 --> 00:01:58.030
  • 00:01:58.040 --> 00:02:05.240
  • Dr. Youssef: The Greek word "hilarios" means
  • 00:02:08.260 --> 00:02:12.160
  • the person who have joy in his or her heart in giving;
  • 00:02:12.170 --> 00:02:18.180
  • and the hilarios giver gives out of joyous,
  • 00:02:18.190 --> 00:02:22.240
  • continuous, and systematic giving.
  • 00:02:22.250 --> 00:02:27.170
  • And that is why Paul said,
  • 00:02:27.180 --> 00:02:29.070
  • "Those hilarios givers have special place in God's heart."
  • 00:02:29.080 --> 00:02:33.260
  • Dr. Youssef: By now I'm sure you've heard at least 100 times
  • 00:02:38.090 --> 00:02:45.010
  • one of the following statements:
  • 00:02:45.020 --> 00:02:50.160
  • "Christmas is the season for giving."
  • 00:02:50.170 --> 00:02:53.250
  • I'm not gonna ask you to raise your hand.
  • 00:02:53.260 --> 00:02:56.080
  • "The magic of Christmas."
  • 00:02:56.090 --> 00:02:59.030
  • "Christmas miracles."
  • 00:02:59.040 --> 00:03:00.170
  • Not only that, but at Christmastime,
  • 00:03:01.250 --> 00:03:04.250
  • we see some of the most amazing transformation takes place
  • 00:03:04.260 --> 00:03:09.250
  • in people who might be hard-driving
  • 00:03:09.260 --> 00:03:12.200
  • or Scrooge-like, stingy, or don't even think of God
  • 00:03:12.210 --> 00:03:17.120
  • and, for some reason around Christmastime,
  • 00:03:17.130 --> 00:03:20.170
  • some big transformation takes place in their life.
  • 00:03:20.180 --> 00:03:23.120
  • They become generous and thoughtful
  • 00:03:23.130 --> 00:03:25.130
  • and warm and fuzzy and even give a little.
  • 00:03:25.140 --> 00:03:30.220
  • And so, for a short period of time at least,
  • 00:03:30.230 --> 00:03:33.150
  • everybody talks about the spirit of Christmas, right?
  • 00:03:33.160 --> 00:03:37.160
  • And I'm gonna come to that in a minute.
  • 00:03:37.170 --> 00:03:39.180
  • What is that spirit of Christmas?
  • 00:03:39.190 --> 00:03:42.120
  • But for those of us who know and love Jesus,
  • 00:03:42.130 --> 00:03:46.090
  • the spirit of Christmas is 24/7 year-round.
  • 00:03:46.100 --> 00:03:50.270
  • Why?
  • 00:03:50.280 --> 00:03:52.070
  • Because we know firsthand that God loved,
  • 00:03:52.080 --> 00:03:58.290
  • therefore he gave.
  • 00:03:59.000 --> 00:04:01.240
  • Because we know firsthand,
  • 00:04:01.250 --> 00:04:03.050
  • we have a firsthand experience of that indescribable
  • 00:04:03.060 --> 00:04:09.120
  • self-sacrificing love of God
  • 00:04:09.130 --> 00:04:12.040
  • because what we were like before Christ came into our life
  • 00:04:12.050 --> 00:04:16.110
  • and how we could not even comprehend
  • 00:04:16.120 --> 00:04:18.180
  • that anybody could love us like that
  • 00:04:18.190 --> 00:04:21.240
  • and that is why Jesus said,
  • 00:04:21.250 --> 00:04:23.200
  • "For God so loved the world, that he gave."
  • 00:04:23.210 --> 00:04:29.010
  • Now, whether the rest of the world
  • 00:04:29.020 --> 00:04:30.130
  • understand this or not, I know we do.
  • 00:04:30.140 --> 00:04:34.160
  • We know that the spirit of Christmas
  • 00:04:34.170 --> 00:04:37.110
  • and the why it's called the season of giving
  • 00:04:37.120 --> 00:04:39.280
  • and why we talk about the miracle of Christmas
  • 00:04:39.290 --> 00:04:42.220
  • to those who know and love Jesus,
  • 00:04:42.230 --> 00:04:46.190
  • every day is Christmas Day.
  • 00:04:46.200 --> 00:04:48.260
  • Every day we wake up and we go and open, not a box, but a book.
  • 00:04:48.270 --> 00:04:57.140
  • Every day we receive a gift.
  • 00:04:57.150 --> 00:04:59.060
  • Every day, every waking moment, in fact,
  • 00:04:59.070 --> 00:05:02.270
  • we are reminded by the Holy Spirit
  • 00:05:02.280 --> 00:05:04.270
  • of the great gift because God so loved that he gave.
  • 00:05:04.280 --> 00:05:13.150
  • Every day we are reminded from the Word of God
  • 00:05:13.160 --> 00:05:16.090
  • that God's love was not a partial love,
  • 00:05:16.100 --> 00:05:19.140
  • and it's not a partial love.
  • 00:05:19.150 --> 00:05:20.240
  • God's love is permanently permanent
  • 00:05:20.250 --> 00:05:23.200
  • and eternal and everlasting.
  • 00:05:23.210 --> 00:05:26.160
  • In fact, the summary of the entire Bible,
  • 00:05:26.170 --> 00:05:30.140
  • the summary of the whole Christian faith,
  • 00:05:30.150 --> 00:05:34.010
  • is this: because God loved so much that he gave so much.
  • 00:05:34.020 --> 00:05:41.250
  • It is possible to give without loving.
  • 00:05:41.260 --> 00:05:47.180
  • But it is impossible to love without giving.
  • 00:05:47.190 --> 00:05:52.160
  • In fact, the more you love, the more you give.
  • 00:05:52.170 --> 00:05:56.290
  • Your level of love is a barometer
  • 00:05:57.000 --> 00:05:59.270
  • of the level of your sacrifice.
  • 00:05:59.280 --> 00:06:03.240
  • And I'm talking about everything.
  • 00:06:03.250 --> 00:06:05.050
  • I'm not talking just about giving things.
  • 00:06:05.060 --> 00:06:06.220
  • I'm talking about everything.
  • 00:06:06.230 --> 00:06:09.140
  • To those of us who are the recipients
  • 00:06:09.150 --> 00:06:12.010
  • of that amazing gift of God,
  • 00:06:12.020 --> 00:06:14.140
  • the gift of salvation, the amazing mercy
  • 00:06:14.150 --> 00:06:17.030
  • and forgiveness of all of our sins,
  • 00:06:17.040 --> 00:06:20.000
  • the amazing grace that promised eternal life,
  • 00:06:20.010 --> 00:06:25.050
  • there is no option but to give of ourselves in gratitude.
  • 00:06:25.060 --> 00:06:30.010
  • We don't pay God back.
  • 00:06:30.020 --> 00:06:31.110
  • You can never pay in 20.000 lifetimes.
  • 00:06:31.120 --> 00:06:34.070
  • But we give in gratitude and in thanksgiving.
  • 00:06:34.080 --> 00:06:37.080
  • His example should be ours,
  • 00:06:37.090 --> 00:06:39.130
  • his role model should be ours to emulate,
  • 00:06:39.140 --> 00:06:42.150
  • his sacrificial love should be something
  • 00:06:42.160 --> 00:06:45.110
  • that we imitate on a daily basis.
  • 00:06:45.120 --> 00:06:48.100
  • But, because of the influence of our secular culture,
  • 00:06:48.110 --> 00:06:53.030
  • even among God's people, even among God's--
  • 00:06:53.040 --> 00:06:56.070
  • even the church,
  • 00:06:56.080 --> 00:06:58.230
  • the moment you talk about sacrificial giving
  • 00:06:58.240 --> 00:07:01.150
  • and people become very defensive.
  • 00:07:01.160 --> 00:07:04.190
  • "Uh-oh, he's gonna preach on money.
  • 00:07:04.200 --> 00:07:06.230
  • He's gonna preach on giving."
  • 00:07:06.240 --> 00:07:08.100
  • Relax, I'm gonna collect your wallets
  • 00:07:08.110 --> 00:07:10.280
  • at the end of the service.
  • 00:07:10.290 --> 00:07:13.210
  • In all seriousness, giving under compulsion
  • 00:07:13.220 --> 00:07:18.290
  • is not part of the Christian life.
  • 00:07:19.000 --> 00:07:22.220
  • Giving under compulsion is not part of the Christian life.
  • 00:07:22.230 --> 00:07:25.050
  • Why? Because God did not give
  • 00:07:25.060 --> 00:07:28.090
  • and does not give under compulsion.
  • 00:07:28.100 --> 00:07:32.150
  • And that is why this most familiar text,
  • 00:07:32.160 --> 00:07:37.260
  • and it is so familiar that sometimes you see it
  • 00:07:37.270 --> 00:07:41.130
  • even in stadiums or bumper stickers
  • 00:07:41.140 --> 00:07:44.050
  • or even on some T-shirts.
  • 00:07:44.060 --> 00:07:47.150
  • It's become so familiar that it really almost trivializes it,
  • 00:07:47.160 --> 00:07:51.270
  • and today I want to take a very serious look
  • 00:07:51.280 --> 00:07:55.120
  • at the clearest summary of the Christian faith,
  • 00:07:55.130 --> 00:07:57.210
  • the clearest summary of what we are all about
  • 00:07:57.220 --> 00:08:02.160
  • and the purpose of Jesus coming to earth.
  • 00:08:02.170 --> 00:08:05.250
  • By the way, you cannot find a statement like this,
  • 00:08:05.260 --> 00:08:11.120
  • John 3:16, in any of the other religions.
  • 00:08:11.130 --> 00:08:15.110
  • But our God is a loving God.
  • 00:08:15.120 --> 00:08:17.050
  • Our God is a giving God.
  • 00:08:17.060 --> 00:08:18.220
  • Our God is a sacrificing God.
  • 00:08:18.230 --> 00:08:20.220
  • Our God is a condescending God.
  • 00:08:20.230 --> 00:08:22.260
  • Our God is the one who reaches down to us in love,
  • 00:08:22.270 --> 00:08:27.050
  • and that's what set the Christian faith apart.
  • 00:08:27.060 --> 00:08:29.140
  • I wanna break down John 3:16 into three parts,
  • 00:08:32.030 --> 00:08:35.130
  • so follow with me please:
  • 00:08:35.140 --> 00:08:38.060
  • "Giving is God's nature.
  • 00:08:38.070 --> 00:08:42.150
  • Loving is God's essence.
  • 00:08:42.160 --> 00:08:47.180
  • Our salvation is God's desire, it's God's longing desire."
  • 00:08:47.190 --> 00:08:54.050
  • Giving is God's nature.
  • 00:08:54.060 --> 00:08:56.010
  • The Bible says out of pure love, he gave.
  • 00:08:56.020 --> 00:08:59.170
  • What did God give?
  • 00:09:01.110 --> 00:09:02.200
  • A token of himself?
  • 00:09:02.210 --> 00:09:04.280
  • Listen to me.
  • 00:09:04.290 --> 00:09:06.080
  • When God loved, he gave his all.
  • 00:09:06.090 --> 00:09:08.260
  • In fact, he had nothing else left to give
  • 00:09:08.270 --> 00:09:11.250
  • when he gave Jesus, his Son.
  • 00:09:11.260 --> 00:09:14.200
  • When you and I give back to God,
  • 00:09:14.210 --> 00:09:16.160
  • we know we can give so much, but probably not more, why?
  • 00:09:16.170 --> 00:09:20.080
  • Because we have responsibilities.
  • 00:09:20.090 --> 00:09:22.040
  • We have families to take care of.
  • 00:09:22.050 --> 00:09:23.180
  • We have the family needs to meet.
  • 00:09:23.190 --> 00:09:26.000
  • We have to provide for our daily needs.
  • 00:09:26.010 --> 00:09:28.230
  • And so we divide and we measure and we plan.
  • 00:09:28.240 --> 00:09:31.230
  • At least, my family's experience in the last 40 years,
  • 00:09:31.240 --> 00:09:34.220
  • when we give God off the top,
  • 00:09:34.230 --> 00:09:37.040
  • when we give God the first fruit,
  • 00:09:37.050 --> 00:09:38.240
  • we found that we got more left over, not less.
  • 00:09:38.250 --> 00:09:44.010
  • But when God gave,
  • 00:09:44.020 --> 00:09:45.190
  • he gave his one and only begotten Son.
  • 00:09:45.200 --> 00:09:50.190
  • Why? Because giving is his nature.
  • 00:09:50.200 --> 00:09:55.000
  • You see, the heart of Christmas, and you know this,
  • 00:09:55.010 --> 00:09:56.290
  • it's not ho-ho-ho and Christmas cheers.
  • 00:09:57.000 --> 00:09:59.130
  • The heart of Christmas message is that God gave his all.
  • 00:09:59.140 --> 00:10:06.160
  • But just in case somebody kind of misunderstand me and think,
  • 00:10:06.170 --> 00:10:09.040
  • "Well, Michael is just a Scrooge and he is poo-pooing giving
  • 00:10:09.050 --> 00:10:13.020
  • and receiving of gifts," I'm not.
  • 00:10:13.030 --> 00:10:14.220
  • There's nothing wrong with giving and receiving gifts.
  • 00:10:14.230 --> 00:10:17.050
  • I love it, wonderful.
  • 00:10:17.060 --> 00:10:19.180
  • As long as we don't receive
  • 00:10:19.190 --> 00:10:21.120
  • the person whose birthday we are celebrating.
  • 00:10:21.130 --> 00:10:24.230
  • Don't leave him out.
  • 00:10:24.240 --> 00:10:26.170
  • "For God so loved the world, that he gave."
  • 00:10:26.180 --> 00:10:31.190
  • So giving is his nature.
  • 00:10:31.200 --> 00:10:33.060
  • Secondly, loving is his essence.
  • 00:10:33.070 --> 00:10:37.190
  • You see, when the Bible said God so loved the world,
  • 00:10:37.200 --> 00:10:40.280
  • that he gave his one and only begotten Son,
  • 00:10:40.290 --> 00:10:46.110
  • he was talking about people
  • 00:10:46.120 --> 00:10:48.200
  • who were filled with enmity and hatred toward him,
  • 00:10:48.210 --> 00:10:51.170
  • people who are prideful
  • 00:10:51.180 --> 00:10:53.020
  • and arrogant and self-sufficient.
  • 00:10:53.030 --> 00:10:55.100
  • He was talking about people who did not care for him,
  • 00:10:55.110 --> 00:10:58.250
  • only for his blessings,
  • 00:10:58.260 --> 00:11:00.140
  • people who have no gratitude in their heart
  • 00:11:00.150 --> 00:11:04.120
  • or thanksgiving to God, people like me who snubbed God
  • 00:11:04.130 --> 00:11:08.220
  • and ran away from God for a time,
  • 00:11:08.230 --> 00:11:11.180
  • people who despised his love
  • 00:11:11.190 --> 00:11:15.110
  • because he did not give them what they wanted,
  • 00:11:15.120 --> 00:11:17.150
  • people who chose to worship his gifts
  • 00:11:17.160 --> 00:11:19.180
  • but not him, the giver.
  • 00:11:19.190 --> 00:11:22.180
  • That people was me.
  • 00:11:22.190 --> 00:11:24.160
  • And that people is you.
  • 00:11:24.170 --> 00:11:25.270
  • "And while we were yet disobedient sinners,
  • 00:11:28.180 --> 00:11:33.130
  • Christ died for us."
  • 00:11:33.140 --> 00:11:36.060
  • "For God so loved the world, that he gave
  • 00:11:36.070 --> 00:11:40.290
  • his one and only begotten Son."
  • 00:11:41.000 --> 00:11:43.010
  • Hear me right, please.
  • 00:11:43.020 --> 00:11:44.120
  • There was nothing endearing about us to God.
  • 00:11:45.200 --> 00:11:49.100
  • There was nothing attractive about us for him to love us.
  • 00:11:49.110 --> 00:11:56.240
  • Think about this, and think about it this way.
  • 00:11:56.250 --> 00:12:00.270
  • God, the greatest lover; so loved, the greatest degree;
  • 00:12:00.280 --> 00:12:06.010
  • the world, the greatest number; that he gave, the greatest act;
  • 00:12:06.020 --> 00:12:11.070
  • his one and only begotten Son, the greatest gift;
  • 00:12:11.080 --> 00:12:16.060
  • that whosoever, the greatest invitation;
  • 00:12:16.070 --> 00:12:19.050
  • believes, the greatest simplicity;
  • 00:12:19.060 --> 00:12:22.030
  • in him, the greatest person;
  • 00:12:22.040 --> 00:12:24.290
  • shall not perish, the greatest deliverance;
  • 00:12:25.000 --> 00:12:27.240
  • but have, the greatest certainty;
  • 00:12:27.250 --> 00:12:30.270
  • eternal life, the greatest possession;
  • 00:12:30.280 --> 00:12:34.100
  • amen and amen and amen, and thank God.
  • 00:12:34.110 --> 00:12:37.190
  • Give him praise.
  • 00:12:37.200 --> 00:12:41.100
  • Question: where does this incredible,
  • 00:12:41.110 --> 00:12:43.290
  • incomprehensible love come from?
  • 00:12:44.000 --> 00:12:45.260
  • Where'd it come from?
  • 00:12:45.270 --> 00:12:48.040
  • Not from anything outside of God.
  • 00:12:48.050 --> 00:12:52.080
  • God loves because it is his nature to love.
  • 00:12:52.090 --> 00:12:56.280
  • It is his essence.
  • 00:12:56.290 --> 00:12:59.140
  • God's love springing out
  • 00:12:59.150 --> 00:13:02.060
  • from beneath the everlasting throne.
  • 00:13:02.070 --> 00:13:05.050
  • God's love overflows from the spring of infinity.
  • 00:13:05.060 --> 00:13:09.260
  • There is no computation
  • 00:13:09.270 --> 00:13:11.280
  • that can ever measure the love of God.
  • 00:13:11.290 --> 00:13:15.240
  • And that is why the Holy Spirit who authored the Scripture,
  • 00:13:15.250 --> 00:13:23.180
  • the Spirit of God,
  • 00:13:23.190 --> 00:13:27.100
  • one of the smallest English words used
  • 00:13:27.110 --> 00:13:31.040
  • in order to explain: "so."
  • 00:13:31.050 --> 00:13:35.080
  • Can you say that with me?
  • 00:13:35.090 --> 00:13:36.180
  • "So."
  • 00:13:36.190 --> 00:13:38.120
  • He so loved the world,
  • 00:13:38.130 --> 00:13:41.130
  • gives the greatest and the largest gift of all.
  • 00:13:41.140 --> 00:13:45.030
  • Beloved, listen to me.
  • 00:13:45.040 --> 00:13:46.130
  • His love compelled him to do the unthinkable.
  • 00:13:46.140 --> 00:13:50.250
  • His love compelled him to do the impossible.
  • 00:13:50.260 --> 00:13:54.230
  • His love compelled him to do the incomprehensible.
  • 00:13:54.240 --> 00:13:58.260
  • His love compelled him to do the undoable.
  • 00:13:58.270 --> 00:14:03.100
  • Those who love much give much.
  • 00:14:03.110 --> 00:14:07.260
  • Love can only be measured by the degree of sacrifice,
  • 00:14:07.270 --> 00:14:12.240
  • by the degree of self-denial,
  • 00:14:12.250 --> 00:14:15.220
  • that are entered into that expression of love.
  • 00:14:15.230 --> 00:14:20.170
  • God's love for us is the kind of love that spared nothing,
  • 00:14:20.180 --> 00:14:24.260
  • spared nothing, and gave everything.
  • 00:14:24.270 --> 00:14:28.240
  • You see, when God wanted to communicate
  • 00:14:28.250 --> 00:14:30.230
  • to our finite, limited mind,
  • 00:14:30.240 --> 00:14:33.270
  • he wanted us to comprehend a little bit of what it is
  • 00:14:33.280 --> 00:14:36.240
  • that for the Godhead, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
  • 00:14:36.250 --> 00:14:40.180
  • when God wanted to communicate to us
  • 00:14:40.190 --> 00:14:43.120
  • something that would be familiar to us,
  • 00:14:43.130 --> 00:14:45.280
  • to help us understand,
  • 00:14:45.290 --> 00:14:47.230
  • he chose the image of Father, Son.
  • 00:14:47.240 --> 00:14:49.240
  • Giving is his nature.
  • 00:14:52.100 --> 00:14:54.120
  • Loving is his essence.
  • 00:14:54.130 --> 00:14:57.100
  • Our salvation is his longing, his desire.
  • 00:14:57.110 --> 00:15:03.290
  • He longs.
  • 00:15:07.120 --> 00:15:09.090
  • "For God so loved the world, that he gave
  • 00:15:09.100 --> 00:15:13.060
  • his one and only begotten Son,
  • 00:15:13.070 --> 00:15:16.220
  • that whomsoever believes in him shall not perish,
  • 00:15:16.230 --> 00:15:19.210
  • but have everlasting life."
  • 00:15:19.220 --> 00:15:22.210
  • Don't miss what I'm going to tell you, please.
  • 00:15:24.230 --> 00:15:27.140
  • Something that's propagated
  • 00:15:27.150 --> 00:15:29.020
  • in a much wider scale than you'll ever imagine.
  • 00:15:29.030 --> 00:15:33.210
  • Here's what the Bible did not say.
  • 00:15:33.220 --> 00:15:35.010
  • Here's what Jesus did not say in John 3:16.
  • 00:15:35.020 --> 00:15:39.170
  • He did not say: "For God so loved the world,
  • 00:15:39.180 --> 00:15:43.200
  • that he gave his only begotten Son
  • 00:15:43.210 --> 00:15:48.220
  • so that every man, everyone, everywhere,
  • 00:15:48.230 --> 00:15:53.240
  • will have everlasting life."
  • 00:15:53.250 --> 00:15:56.160
  • That falsehood is preached a lot, trust me.
  • 00:15:56.170 --> 00:16:00.190
  • No, no, no, this is falsehood.
  • 00:16:00.200 --> 00:16:03.220
  • This universalism is a false preaching.
  • 00:16:03.230 --> 00:16:07.060
  • Love brought Jesus down
  • 00:16:07.070 --> 00:16:11.020
  • so that only and only and only those who respond to his love
  • 00:16:11.030 --> 00:16:18.210
  • will be saved from eternal damnation.
  • 00:16:18.220 --> 00:16:23.210
  • When God gave his Son,
  • 00:16:23.220 --> 00:16:26.100
  • it was because those who will believe in him
  • 00:16:26.110 --> 00:16:30.040
  • can escape the torment of hell.
  • 00:16:30.050 --> 00:16:33.160
  • Why?
  • 00:16:33.170 --> 00:16:35.020
  • See, salvation is his desire.
  • 00:16:35.030 --> 00:16:37.130
  • It's his longing.
  • 00:16:37.140 --> 00:16:39.030
  • He wish that everybody would believe,
  • 00:16:39.040 --> 00:16:40.220
  • that is his longing.
  • 00:16:40.230 --> 00:16:45.010
  • Who are the saved?
  • 00:16:45.020 --> 00:16:47.110
  • Everyone who will respond to his incomprehensible love.
  • 00:16:47.120 --> 00:16:52.020
  • Those who will come to him in humility and in gratitude
  • 00:16:52.030 --> 00:16:56.080
  • and receive his gift.
  • 00:16:56.090 --> 00:17:00.040
  • Those who realize that they're unworthy
  • 00:17:00.050 --> 00:17:03.220
  • and undeserving of his love
  • 00:17:03.230 --> 00:17:07.180
  • and that's why when God gave us his son,
  • 00:17:07.190 --> 00:17:13.020
  • he did not give him to live in Caesar's palace.
  • 00:17:13.030 --> 00:17:17.210
  • He did not-- he gave him to be born
  • 00:17:17.220 --> 00:17:21.060
  • in an animal feeding trough.
  • 00:17:21.070 --> 00:17:24.010
  • He gave him to the carpenter's shop.
  • 00:17:24.020 --> 00:17:26.190
  • He gave him to receive the lashing of the tongues
  • 00:17:26.200 --> 00:17:30.050
  • and the scourging of his pure character
  • 00:17:30.060 --> 00:17:33.060
  • by those who were into religion and religious people.
  • 00:17:33.070 --> 00:17:37.230
  • He sent him to people who spread false accusations about him
  • 00:17:37.240 --> 00:17:43.020
  • like the morning dew.
  • 00:17:43.030 --> 00:17:44.220
  • He sent him to hunger and thirst.
  • 00:17:44.230 --> 00:17:47.080
  • He sent him to homelessness.
  • 00:17:47.090 --> 00:17:49.030
  • He sent him to utter poverty.
  • 00:17:49.040 --> 00:17:50.220
  • He sent him to receive the scourging
  • 00:17:50.230 --> 00:17:53.070
  • and the crown of thorns here.
  • 00:17:53.080 --> 00:17:54.290
  • He sent him to those when he gave his back to their smite,
  • 00:17:55.000 --> 00:17:59.150
  • as Isaiah had prophesied,
  • 00:17:59.160 --> 00:18:01.240
  • and his cheek to those who would pluck its hair,
  • 00:18:01.250 --> 00:18:05.190
  • and ultimately he gave him to the cross where he,
  • 00:18:05.200 --> 00:18:10.180
  • on his sinless, perfect body, carried my sin and yours.
  • 00:18:10.190 --> 00:18:17.090
  • And the sin of whomsoever.
  • 00:18:17.100 --> 00:18:21.100
  • Whomsoever, whomsoever, whomsoever.
  • 00:18:21.110 --> 00:18:27.080
  • Question: who are the whomsoever?
  • 00:18:27.090 --> 00:18:29.280
  • Those who would gladly receive him
  • 00:18:29.290 --> 00:18:32.130
  • as their only Savior and Lord.
  • 00:18:32.140 --> 00:18:34.280
  • Those who gladly love him back with all their heart.
  • 00:18:34.290 --> 00:18:41.270
  • I'm trying to make the distinction
  • 00:18:41.280 --> 00:18:45.070
  • between the false gospel that is preached a great deal
  • 00:18:45.080 --> 00:18:48.190
  • about how Jesus died on the cross
  • 00:18:48.200 --> 00:18:51.120
  • and therefore salvation was given
  • 00:18:51.130 --> 00:18:54.090
  • to everybody in the universe.
  • 00:18:54.100 --> 00:18:55.190
  • It doesn't matter what you believe,
  • 00:18:55.200 --> 00:18:56.290
  • whether you believe in Jesus or not.
  • 00:18:57.000 --> 00:19:00.140
  • When Jesus said in John 3:16: "For God so loved the world,
  • 00:19:00.150 --> 00:19:06.220
  • that he gave his only one begotten Son,
  • 00:19:06.230 --> 00:19:10.210
  • so that whosoever believes in him have eternal life,"
  • 00:19:10.220 --> 00:19:15.080
  • he was saying that he paid the price for that pardon,
  • 00:19:15.090 --> 00:19:21.260
  • but until it is accepted, until it's accepted,
  • 00:19:21.270 --> 00:19:26.250
  • until you claim that pardon,
  • 00:19:26.260 --> 00:19:30.240
  • you're condemned for all of eternity.
  • 00:19:30.250 --> 00:19:36.080
  • That eternal condemnation hangs on us, every one of us,
  • 00:19:36.090 --> 00:19:40.070
  • as a dark cloud until we accept the pardon.
  • 00:19:40.080 --> 00:19:45.170
  • Today, if there's anyone here at the sound of my voice
  • 00:19:45.180 --> 00:19:47.290
  • or watching around the world live,
  • 00:19:48.000 --> 00:19:51.050
  • who would say, "Yes, Lord, I humbly receive
  • 00:19:51.060 --> 00:19:58.220
  • that pardon that cost you everything,"
  • 00:19:58.230 --> 00:20:04.070
  • that person, the Bible said,
  • 00:20:04.080 --> 00:20:06.210
  • will be set free from sin and guilt for all of eternity.
  • 00:20:06.220 --> 00:20:11.010
  • Don McLean: All I have to do
  • 00:20:22.170 --> 00:20:23.260
  • was look at the creation around me,
  • 00:20:23.270 --> 00:20:25.090
  • especially in the area I live, it's beautiful.
  • 00:20:25.100 --> 00:20:27.190
  • I was cutting a tree the other day
  • 00:20:27.200 --> 00:20:28.290
  • and there was a fox chasing a rabbit.
  • 00:20:29.000 --> 00:20:30.270
  • Up the road there was a bear.
  • 00:20:30.280 --> 00:20:32.160
  • You see all these many things
  • 00:20:32.170 --> 00:20:34.210
  • and look at the beauty of his handiwork.
  • 00:20:34.220 --> 00:20:38.280
  • I'm Don McLean from Charlo in New Brunswick,
  • 00:20:38.290 --> 00:20:41.160
  • and that's in Canada.
  • 00:20:41.170 --> 00:20:44.150
  • I always dabbled a little bit in stuff on the side
  • 00:20:44.160 --> 00:20:47.140
  • just to try and make ends meet.
  • 00:20:47.150 --> 00:20:49.150
  • As I retired and I felt I wanted to do something for the Lord,
  • 00:20:49.160 --> 00:20:55.140
  • and one thing I could do was I could give.
  • 00:20:55.150 --> 00:20:57.150
  • So I continued to work at these hobbies.
  • 00:20:57.160 --> 00:21:00.180
  • But the Bible tells us also that we should work
  • 00:21:00.190 --> 00:21:04.280
  • because if we work
  • 00:21:04.290 --> 00:21:06.080
  • then we have something to share with others,
  • 00:21:06.090 --> 00:21:08.030
  • to help others in the area, in the community, and ministry,
  • 00:21:08.040 --> 00:21:11.050
  • so other people come to know the Lord
  • 00:21:11.060 --> 00:21:12.270
  • as their personal Savior.
  • 00:21:12.280 --> 00:21:14.180
  • Dr. Youssef: Who forgave me all of my sins and gave me
  • 00:21:14.190 --> 00:21:17.280
  • the assurance of eternal life with him in heaven.
  • 00:21:17.290 --> 00:21:21.090
  • Don: Leading The Way being the ministry
  • 00:21:21.100 --> 00:21:23.030
  • that I felt led to support
  • 00:21:23.040 --> 00:21:25.080
  • because of their uncompromised preaching of the Word of God,
  • 00:21:25.090 --> 00:21:30.240
  • they resonated with me as an honest, truthful,
  • 00:21:30.250 --> 00:21:34.020
  • and faithful ministry; and I think it's nice to give,
  • 00:21:34.030 --> 00:21:36.180
  • and you're not really giving it away anyway.
  • 00:21:36.190 --> 00:21:38.070
  • You're just transferring it to your bank account in heaven.
  • 00:21:38.080 --> 00:21:40.180
  • Don: One of those hobbies is woodwork,
  • 00:21:47.160 --> 00:21:48.250
  • and it's been really good to me.
  • 00:21:48.260 --> 00:21:50.170
  • And I sell a lot of cedar lawn furniture,
  • 00:21:50.180 --> 00:21:54.110
  • chairs, and funeral urns.
  • 00:21:54.120 --> 00:21:58.050
  • We have our own 46 acres of woodland
  • 00:21:58.060 --> 00:22:00.240
  • where we cut our logs.
  • 00:22:00.250 --> 00:22:02.160
  • We saw logs, we dry them,
  • 00:22:02.170 --> 00:22:05.050
  • and then we turn it into the lawn furniture
  • 00:22:05.060 --> 00:22:07.050
  • and it's the full process.
  • 00:22:07.060 --> 00:22:09.110
  • As I work on them, gives you a good warm feeling
  • 00:22:09.120 --> 00:22:11.250
  • because you know you're helping somebody else.
  • 00:22:11.260 --> 00:22:13.140
  • It gives a purpose in life.
  • 00:22:13.150 --> 00:22:16.060
  • What else does a retired guy sit around and do?
  • 00:22:16.070 --> 00:22:21.050
  • But by doing this and reaching out
  • 00:22:21.060 --> 00:22:22.200
  • and doing this work, we can give
  • 00:22:22.210 --> 00:22:24.200
  • and we can help people all over the world.
  • 00:22:24.210 --> 00:22:27.060
  • Don: After finding Dr. Youssef on television,
  • 00:22:29.060 --> 00:22:32.110
  • I seen that they were very transparent,
  • 00:22:32.120 --> 00:22:35.020
  • used the funds wisely,
  • 00:22:35.030 --> 00:22:36.260
  • and used it to help other people,
  • 00:22:36.270 --> 00:22:38.280
  • bring them to salvation.
  • 00:22:38.290 --> 00:22:40.270
  • Another thing that drew me to Leading The Way
  • 00:22:40.280 --> 00:22:43.220
  • is uncompromising preaching of the Word of God.
  • 00:22:43.230 --> 00:22:48.110
  • He always has a very nice way of putting it.
  • 00:22:48.120 --> 00:22:52.100
  • He doesn't insult, he doesn't condemn,
  • 00:22:52.110 --> 00:22:54.150
  • but he preaches the truth.
  • 00:22:54.160 --> 00:22:57.100
  • "The gospel shall be preached throughout all the world
  • 00:22:57.110 --> 00:23:00.110
  • and then the end shall come."
  • 00:23:00.120 --> 00:23:02.060
  • And this is one of the things
  • 00:23:02.070 --> 00:23:03.160
  • that Leading The Way is doing it,
  • 00:23:03.170 --> 00:23:05.090
  • through these Kingdom Sat that they have.
  • 00:23:05.100 --> 00:23:08.160
  • It's a solar-powered Navigator, and this has been
  • 00:23:08.170 --> 00:23:12.090
  • a very successful endeavor, I believe, of the ministry.
  • 00:23:12.100 --> 00:23:15.140
  • So that's another aspect of this ministry
  • 00:23:15.150 --> 00:23:18.120
  • that causes me to wanna support it.
  • 00:23:18.130 --> 00:23:20.280
  • Don: Habakkuk 2:14: "For the earth will be filled
  • 00:23:21.190 --> 00:23:25.020
  • with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord
  • 00:23:25.030 --> 00:23:27.120
  • as the waters cover the sea."
  • 00:23:27.130 --> 00:23:29.180
  • And I believe that Leading The Way,
  • 00:23:29.190 --> 00:23:31.110
  • their goal, to cover the earth with the gospel of the Lord.
  • 00:23:31.120 --> 00:23:36.290
