  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes: You're
  • 00:00:10.190 --> 00:00:11.060
  • getting ready to step off the
  • 00:00:11.060 --> 00:00:12.010
  • boat with all the deadbeat
  • 00:00:12.010 --> 00:00:13.190
  • people who are too stubborn to
  • 00:00:13.190 --> 00:00:15.160
  • change and you're getting ready
  • 00:00:15.160 --> 00:00:17.060
  • to have an encounter with God.
  • 00:00:18.040 --> 00:00:21.040
  • Nudge your neighbor and say,
  • 00:00:21.040 --> 00:00:21.260
  • "Take a step."

  • - Bishop Jakes: "Whatsoever you
  • 00:00:24.110 --> 00:00:25.070

  • 00:00:25.070 --> 00:00:27.240
  • "Believe you have received it
  • 00:00:27.240 --> 00:00:30.090
  • The Potter's Touch
  • 00:00:47.090 --> 00:00:49.180
  • The Potter's Touch
  • 00:00:50.100 --> 00:00:53.100
  • - Bishop Jakes: You cannot get
  • 00:00:53.100 --> 00:00:53.290
  • along with and work with all
  • 00:00:53.290 --> 00:00:55.020
  • types of people, and it has
  • 00:00:55.020 --> 00:00:56.260
  • limited you all of your life.
  • 00:00:56.260 --> 00:00:58.250
  • It's not that you're not
  • 00:00:58.250 --> 00:00:59.220
  • wonderful, it's not that you're
  • 00:00:59.220 --> 00:01:00.290
  • not gifted, but I am a living
  • 00:01:00.290 --> 00:01:02.180
  • witness.
  • 00:01:02.180 --> 00:01:03.070
  • I don't care how gifted you are,
  • 00:01:03.070 --> 00:01:04.150
  • if you can't get along with
  • 00:01:04.150 --> 00:01:05.130
  • anybody, it limits what you can
  • 00:01:05.130 --> 00:01:08.010
  • do with the person, because
  • 00:01:08.280 --> 00:01:11.280
  • everything happens when we
  • 00:01:11.280 --> 00:01:13.170
  • unite.
  • 00:01:13.170 --> 00:01:15.170
  • Everything happens when we
  • 00:01:15.170 --> 00:01:16.240
  • unite.
  • 00:01:16.240 --> 00:01:18.210
  • Everything happens when we
  • 00:01:18.210 --> 00:01:20.050
  • unite.
  • 00:01:20.050 --> 00:01:21.000
  • Everything happens when we
  • 00:01:21.000 --> 00:01:23.120
  • unite.
  • 00:01:23.120 --> 00:01:24.090
  • Everything happens when we
  • 00:01:24.090 --> 00:01:26.250
  • unite.
  • 00:01:26.250 --> 00:01:27.190
  • Everything moves, when you
  • 00:01:27.190 --> 00:01:29.220
  • unite.
  • 00:01:29.220 --> 00:01:30.250
  • Everything changes, when you
  • 00:01:30.250 --> 00:01:33.030
  • unite.
  • 00:01:33.030 --> 00:01:33.290
  • Everything is broken when you
  • 00:01:33.290 --> 00:01:36.000
  • unite.
  • 00:01:36.000 --> 00:01:36.250
  • God comes down and sits when you
  • 00:01:37.030 --> 00:01:40.030
  • unite.
  • 00:01:40.030 --> 00:01:41.040
  • Mountains move when you unite.
  • 00:01:41.080 --> 00:01:44.080
  • You don't hear what I'm saying.
  • 00:01:44.080 --> 00:01:45.090
  • Yolks are broken when you unite.
  • 00:01:45.180 --> 00:01:48.180
  • E pluribus unum, whenever--we
  • 00:01:48.180 --> 00:01:51.030
  • are many, but we become one.
  • 00:01:51.030 --> 00:01:52.270
  • We become fruitful.
  • 00:01:52.270 --> 00:01:55.060
  • My wife doesn't have to be me.
  • 00:01:55.060 --> 00:01:56.280
  • I don't have to be her.
  • 00:01:56.280 --> 00:01:58.090
  • Pluribus.
  • 00:01:58.090 --> 00:01:59.040
  • We are different but when we
  • 00:01:59.040 --> 00:02:01.060
  • unite, we become fruitful.
  • 00:02:02.020 --> 00:02:05.020
  • What I could not produce without
  • 00:02:05.020 --> 00:02:06.160
  • her and she could not produce
  • 00:02:06.160 --> 00:02:08.010
  • without me, it is our unity,
  • 00:02:08.010 --> 00:02:10.180
  • it's the point that creates new
  • 00:02:10.180 --> 00:02:12.150
  • life and new birth.
  • 00:02:12.150 --> 00:02:14.030
  • So, if I was the enemy and I
  • 00:02:14.030 --> 00:02:15.260
  • didn't want you to be fruitful,
  • 00:02:15.260 --> 00:02:17.130
  • I would stop you from unity
  • 00:02:17.130 --> 00:02:19.130
  • because there are some things
  • 00:02:19.130 --> 00:02:21.060
  • And I'm going to tell you right
  • 00:02:28.130 --> 00:02:29.040
  • now, you've gone as far as you
  • 00:02:29.040 --> 00:02:31.190
  • Some of you have done amazing
  • 00:02:36.290 --> 00:02:38.010
  • things as a one-man band.
  • 00:02:38.100 --> 00:02:41.100
  • You can play the fiddle and the
  • 00:02:41.100 --> 00:02:42.080
  • harp at the same time, and
  • 00:02:42.080 --> 00:02:43.210
  • dance, and click your ankles
  • 00:02:43.210 --> 00:02:45.130
  • together and hit the cymbals,
  • 00:02:46.100 --> 00:02:49.100
  • and you're a good one-man band.
  • 00:02:49.150 --> 00:02:52.150
  • But nobody buys a ticket to go
  • 00:02:52.150 --> 00:02:55.010
  • hear a one-man band.
  • 00:02:55.010 --> 00:02:57.280
  • They buy tickets to hear
  • 00:02:57.280 --> 00:02:58.230
  • orchestras.
  • 00:02:58.230 --> 00:03:00.210
  • E pluribus unum: many become
  • 00:03:00.210 --> 00:03:03.040
  • one.
  • 00:03:03.040 --> 00:03:04.010
  • Now, I want to touch on this a
  • 00:03:04.010 --> 00:03:05.110
  • little bit.
  • 00:03:05.110 --> 00:03:06.220
  • I'm not talking about this candy
  • 00:03:06.220 --> 00:03:08.030
  • cake Christian unity that I hear
  • 00:03:08.030 --> 00:03:09.270
  • people talking about today.
  • 00:03:09.270 --> 00:03:12.210
  • Stuff that denies that we are
  • 00:03:12.210 --> 00:03:14.230
  • pluribus and says we're all one.
  • 00:03:15.010 --> 00:03:18.010
  • Dumb statements like God is
  • 00:03:18.010 --> 00:03:20.010
  • color blind.
  • 00:03:20.010 --> 00:03:21.120
  • No, he's not.
  • 00:03:21.120 --> 00:03:23.210
  • God isn't any kind of blind.
  • 00:03:26.050 --> 00:03:29.050
  • God is color--it's not that he
  • 00:03:29.050 --> 00:03:30.210
  • has to look over my difference
  • 00:03:31.280 --> 00:03:34.280
  • and go blind to accept me.
  • 00:03:34.280 --> 00:03:36.160
  • He painted me like this.
  • 00:03:37.240 --> 00:03:40.240
  • He likes this.
  • 00:03:40.240 --> 00:03:42.120
  • Why would you paint me like this
  • 00:03:42.120 --> 00:03:44.030
  • and then have to look over it?
  • 00:03:44.030 --> 00:03:45.220
  • "I can't see it."
  • 00:03:46.290 --> 00:03:49.290
  • He painted you like he painted
  • 00:03:49.290 --> 00:03:51.020
  • you.
  • 00:03:51.020 --> 00:03:51.290
  • He made you the gender he made
  • 00:03:51.290 --> 00:03:53.140
  • you, the race he made you, the
  • 00:03:53.140 --> 00:03:55.290
  • height he made you, the IQ he
  • 00:03:55.290 --> 00:03:58.080
  • made you.
  • 00:03:58.080 --> 00:03:59.080
  • He meant for you to be different
  • 00:03:59.130 --> 00:04:02.150
  • but just because you're
  • 00:04:02.150 --> 00:04:03.130
  • different, doesn't mean you have
  • 00:04:03.130 --> 00:04:04.280
  • This fake unity that only comes
  • 00:04:13.130 --> 00:04:16.130
  • when we wash feet and have
  • 00:04:16.130 --> 00:04:17.230
  • communion, is not love at all.
  • 00:04:17.230 --> 00:04:20.120
  • Don't show me your unity because
  • 00:04:20.120 --> 00:04:22.070
  • we wash each other's feet.
  • 00:04:22.070 --> 00:04:23.280
  • I want to know who do you go to
  • 00:04:23.280 --> 00:04:25.040
  • the mall with?
  • 00:04:25.040 --> 00:04:26.090
  • Who plays with your kids?
  • 00:04:26.090 --> 00:04:27.270
  • Who comes over in your house?
  • 00:04:27.270 --> 00:04:29.140
  • You can't have reconciliation on
  • 00:04:29.140 --> 00:04:31.280
  • Sunday morning.
  • 00:04:31.280 --> 00:04:33.020
  • I'm tired of staged love.
  • 00:04:34.130 --> 00:04:37.130
  • Staged love.
  • 00:04:37.130 --> 00:04:39.030
  • And we not really loving one
  • 00:04:39.030 --> 00:04:41.030
  • another, we just want to look
  • 00:04:41.030 --> 00:04:43.040
  • God isn't going to bless what we
  • 00:04:51.230 --> 00:04:53.160
  • pretend to be.
  • 00:04:53.160 --> 00:04:55.080
  • He's going to bless what we are,
  • 00:04:55.080 --> 00:04:57.180
  • and we have to work it out, and
  • 00:04:57.180 --> 00:04:59.130
  • work through it and wrestle with
  • 00:04:59.130 --> 00:05:00.290
  • it, because if there's one thing
  • 00:05:00.290 --> 00:05:03.030
  • that the enemy doesn't want is
  • 00:05:03.030 --> 00:05:05.060
  • for us to be united.
  • 00:05:05.060 --> 00:05:07.160
  • Whenever we get together, hell
  • 00:05:07.160 --> 00:05:08.290
  • gets nervous because there is a
  • 00:05:08.290 --> 00:05:11.220
  • power that's released in our
  • 00:05:11.220 --> 00:05:14.050
  • togetherness that the devil
  • 00:05:14.050 --> 00:05:15.290
  • would never have to deal with
  • 00:05:15.290 --> 00:05:17.110
  • any other way.
  • 00:05:18.090 --> 00:05:21.090
  • While you're sore from that,
  • 00:05:21.090 --> 00:05:22.050
  • I'm gonna make you mad about
  • 00:05:22.050 --> 00:05:22.290
  • something else.
  • 00:05:22.290 --> 00:05:24.070
  • That's why it's hard to hold a
  • 00:05:24.070 --> 00:05:25.130
  • marriage together.
  • 00:05:26.010 --> 00:05:29.010
  • The enemy doesn't mind you
  • 00:05:29.010 --> 00:05:29.270
  • shouting all over the church,
  • 00:05:29.270 --> 00:05:31.030
  • long as you not speaking to your
  • 00:05:31.030 --> 00:05:32.230
  • He don't mind you visiting the
  • 00:05:37.140 --> 00:05:38.250
  • sick and preaching till power
  • 00:05:38.250 --> 00:05:40.150
  • comes down, long as you can't
  • 00:05:40.150 --> 00:05:42.090
  • get along with your husband.
  • 00:05:42.250 --> 00:05:45.250
  • Because Jesus prayed that we
  • 00:05:45.250 --> 00:05:47.090
  • might be one.
  • 00:05:47.090 --> 00:05:49.110
  • E pluribus unum.
  • 00:05:49.110 --> 00:05:51.140
  • I know you are many, I know you
  • 00:05:51.140 --> 00:05:53.020
  • are different, but the goal is
  • 00:05:53.020 --> 00:05:54.250
  • for you to be one.
  • 00:05:54.250 --> 00:05:56.100
  • In order to be one, you can't be
  • 00:05:56.100 --> 00:05:58.020
  • You can't be the one that's
  • 00:06:03.090 --> 00:06:04.140
  • Unity becomes the goal, and in
  • 00:06:12.200 --> 00:06:14.120
  • order to have unity, both of us
  • 00:06:14.120 --> 00:06:16.100
  • got to give up a little ground
  • 00:06:16.100 --> 00:06:18.050
  • in order for us to stay together
  • 00:06:18.050 --> 00:06:19.260
  • Because when couples come in to
  • 00:06:22.280 --> 00:06:24.160
  • see me, all they do is come to
  • 00:06:24.160 --> 00:06:27.040
  • see me so that I can validate
  • 00:06:27.040 --> 00:06:29.270
  • what they have decided, and it's
  • 00:06:29.270 --> 00:06:32.230
  • just a contest for me to break
  • 00:06:32.230 --> 00:06:35.010
  • the tie between the opposing
  • 00:06:35.010 --> 00:06:37.030
  • votes, and they just want me to
  • 00:06:37.030 --> 00:06:38.290
  • side with one of them and
  • 00:06:38.290 --> 00:06:40.140
  • whoever I don't side with,
  • 00:06:40.140 --> 00:06:42.020
  • generally falls out with me.
  • 00:06:43.230 --> 00:06:46.230
  • That's why I don't like to do
  • 00:06:46.230 --> 00:06:47.150
  • it.
  • 00:06:47.150 --> 00:06:50.130
  • They don't come till they're ten
  • 00:06:50.130 --> 00:06:51.170
  • minutes from divorce court
  • 00:06:51.170 --> 00:06:52.240
  • anyway.
  • 00:06:52.240 --> 00:06:54.130
  • When it was just a little pimple
  • 00:06:54.130 --> 00:06:55.170
  • and you could have fixed it,
  • 00:06:55.170 --> 00:06:56.260
  • they don't come.
  • 00:06:56.260 --> 00:06:58.180
  • They wait until it has turned
  • 00:06:58.180 --> 00:06:59.200
  • into full-fledged infection and
  • 00:06:59.260 --> 00:07:02.280
  • then they come to you and want
  • 00:07:02.280 --> 00:07:04.040
  • you to work a miracle.
  • 00:07:04.040 --> 00:07:05.270
  • And a miracle depends on which
  • 00:07:05.270 --> 00:07:07.080
  • one you're talking to.
  • 00:07:07.080 --> 00:07:08.170
  • A miracle for her is change him.
  • 00:07:10.130 --> 00:07:13.130
  • A miracle for him is to change
  • 00:07:13.130 --> 00:07:15.020
  • her.
  • 00:07:15.020 --> 00:07:16.080
  • It's that kind of polarity that
  • 00:07:16.080 --> 00:07:17.270
  • he's dealing with.
  • 00:07:17.270 --> 00:07:19.020
  • By chapter 4, Paul says to this
  • 00:07:19.020 --> 00:07:21.070
  • religious community, "All of
  • 00:07:21.070 --> 00:07:23.060
  • y'all are wrong."
  • 00:07:23.160 --> 00:07:26.160
  • All.
  • 00:07:26.160 --> 00:07:27.100
  • He concluded them all in
  • 00:07:27.100 --> 00:07:28.170
  • unbelief."
  • 00:07:28.170 --> 00:07:29.130
  • And it sounds bad, but it was
  • 00:07:29.130 --> 00:07:30.130
  • good.
  • 00:07:30.130 --> 00:07:31.260
  • Because once you give up on your
  • 00:07:31.260 --> 00:07:34.220
  • Once you give up on your
  • 00:07:40.280 --> 00:07:42.040
  • opinion, you can be corrected.
  • 00:07:42.040 --> 00:07:44.080
  • Once you give up on what you had
  • 00:07:44.080 --> 00:07:46.040
  • in mind, you can live the God
  • 00:07:46.040 --> 00:07:48.120
  • life.
  • 00:07:48.120 --> 00:07:50.050
  • You cannot live the God life if
  • 00:07:50.050 --> 00:07:52.130
  • you are living the "you" life.
  • 00:07:53.000 --> 00:07:56.000
  • Oh, I know I'm not going to get
  • 00:07:56.000 --> 00:07:57.030
  • much.
  • 00:07:57.030 --> 00:07:57.250
  • That's okay.
  • 00:07:57.250 --> 00:07:58.270
  • That's okay.
  • 00:07:58.270 --> 00:07:59.240
  • I can preach to quiet folks.
  • 00:07:59.240 --> 00:08:01.060
  • I'm used to it.
  • 00:08:01.060 --> 00:08:03.040
  • I preached in graveyards.
  • 00:08:03.040 --> 00:08:04.090
  • I'll make it through this.
  • 00:08:04.090 --> 00:08:06.160
  • Once you give up on what you had
  • 00:08:06.160 --> 00:08:07.200
  • in mind, because most of us say
  • 00:08:07.200 --> 00:08:09.200
  • we worship God, but we really
  • 00:08:09.200 --> 00:08:11.070
  • don't worship God.
  • 00:08:11.070 --> 00:08:12.110
  • We worship our opinion.
  • 00:08:12.260 --> 00:08:15.260
  • We worship what we had in mind.
  • 00:08:15.260 --> 00:08:17.220
  • And whenever God shows up in a
  • 00:08:17.220 --> 00:08:19.250
  • way that we had in mind, we
  • 00:08:19.250 --> 00:08:21.270
  • accept him.
  • 00:08:21.270 --> 00:08:22.290
  • And whenever he doesn't show up
  • 00:08:22.290 --> 00:08:24.050
  • in a way we had in mind, we
  • 00:08:24.050 --> 00:08:25.280
  • condemn him.
  • 00:08:25.280 --> 00:08:27.100
  • And even the disciples did that.
  • 00:08:27.100 --> 00:08:29.100
  • That's why they didn't recognize
  • 00:08:29.100 --> 00:08:30.190
  • Jesus when he was walking on the
  • 00:08:30.190 --> 00:08:32.140
  • water because he showed up in a
  • 00:08:32.140 --> 00:08:34.110
  • way they didn't have in mind and
  • 00:08:34.110 --> 00:08:36.100
  • the people who were waiting on
  • 00:08:36.100 --> 00:08:37.280
  • him didn't even recognize him
  • 00:08:37.280 --> 00:08:40.080
  • and said, "Oh, there's a ghost."
  • 00:08:40.080 --> 00:08:43.040
  • But Peter said, "Lord, if it's
  • 00:08:43.040 --> 00:08:45.240
  • you, bid me to come."
  • 00:08:45.240 --> 00:08:48.060
  • You got--somebody in this room
  • 00:08:48.140 --> 00:08:51.140
  • is getting ready to step away.
  • 00:08:51.240 --> 00:08:54.240
  • You're getting ready to step off
  • 00:08:54.240 --> 00:08:56.020
  • the boat with all the deadbeat
  • 00:08:56.020 --> 00:08:57.180
  • people who are too stubborn to
  • 00:08:57.180 --> 00:08:59.180
  • change and you're getting ready
  • 00:08:59.180 --> 00:09:01.110
  • Nudge your neighbor and say,
  • 00:09:08.010 --> 00:09:08.230
  • "Take a step."
  • 00:09:08.230 --> 00:09:11.010
  • Get off the boat with the
  • 00:09:11.010 --> 00:09:11.240
  • deadbeats, and the murmurers,
  • 00:09:11.240 --> 00:09:13.190
  • and the complainers, and the
  • 00:09:13.190 --> 00:09:15.130
  • fussers, and the yellers, and
  • 00:09:15.130 --> 00:09:16.280
  • the people who are scared to
  • 00:09:16.280 --> 00:09:19.000
  • move and scared to go.
  • 00:09:19.000 --> 00:09:20.090
  • And they don't recognize God,
  • 00:09:20.090 --> 00:09:22.140
  • save he come in a traditional
  • 00:09:22.140 --> 00:09:24.290
  • way.
  • 00:09:26.080 --> 00:09:29.080
  • Could you accept me if I
  • 00:09:29.080 --> 00:09:30.180
  • preached in dreadlocks?
  • 00:09:30.210 --> 00:09:33.210
  • Could you accept me if I was
  • 00:09:33.210 --> 00:09:34.180
  • Could you accept me if I showed
  • 00:09:42.000 --> 00:09:44.060
  • up in a form other than what you
  • 00:09:44.060 --> 00:09:46.080
  • had in mind?
  • 00:09:46.080 --> 00:09:48.030
  • People don't even want to accept
  • 00:09:48.030 --> 00:09:49.010
  • me in the grocery store.
  • 00:09:49.010 --> 00:09:50.120
  • "What are you doing in the
  • 00:09:50.120 --> 00:09:51.020
  • grocery store?"
  • 00:09:51.020 --> 00:09:51.270
  • Trying to get some food."
  • 00:09:51.270 --> 00:09:54.190
  • "What you doing at the movies?"
  • 00:09:54.190 --> 00:09:56.020
  • "I'm trying to watch a movie.
  • 00:09:56.020 --> 00:09:57.220
  • See, Jesus was so ordinary he
  • 00:10:01.060 --> 00:10:03.200
  • was despised because people want
  • 00:10:03.200 --> 00:10:06.020
  • to put you in a religious box
  • 00:10:06.020 --> 00:10:08.290
  • and hold you hostage while they
  • 00:10:08.290 --> 00:10:11.090
  • I ain't thinking about you.
  • 00:10:19.260 --> 00:10:22.260
  • Whenever God showed up in an
  • 00:10:22.260 --> 00:10:24.050
  • unusual way, they failed to
  • 00:10:24.050 --> 00:10:26.080
  • recognize him and he's trying to
  • 00:10:26.080 --> 00:10:28.120
  • break through these ideas so
  • 00:10:28.120 --> 00:10:30.010
  • that you could step out and have
  • 00:10:30.010 --> 00:10:31.080
  • an encounter with God.
  • 00:10:31.080 --> 00:10:32.120
  • Every time the disciples didn't
  • 00:10:32.120 --> 00:10:35.030
  • recognize Jesus, it was because
  • 00:10:35.030 --> 00:10:36.280
  • he didn't look like what they
  • 00:10:36.280 --> 00:10:37.290
  • expected.
  • 00:10:37.290 --> 00:10:40.140
  • And I want to challenge you
  • 00:10:40.140 --> 00:10:41.150
  • today, that sometimes God will
  • 00:10:41.150 --> 00:10:43.070
  • show up in a way you don't
  • 00:10:43.070 --> 00:10:44.160
  • Sometimes, your greatest
  • 00:10:50.000 --> 00:10:51.060
  • blessing will come dressed up as
  • 00:10:51.060 --> 00:10:54.000
  • your greatest burden, and you
  • 00:10:55.220 --> 00:10:58.220
  • busy trying to rebuke something.
  • 00:10:58.220 --> 00:11:01.170
  • I wish I had a witness--that
  • 00:11:01.170 --> 00:11:04.070
  • God is going to use to bless
  • 00:11:04.070 --> 00:11:05.210
  • you.
  • 00:11:05.210 --> 00:11:07.120
  • You never know how God is going
  • 00:11:07.120 --> 00:11:09.080
  • to show up.
  • 00:11:09.080 --> 00:11:10.100
  • Sometimes, God will not use your
  • 00:11:10.100 --> 00:11:13.020
  • best friend to bless you.
  • 00:11:13.020 --> 00:11:15.120
  • Sometimes, God will use who
  • 00:11:15.120 --> 00:11:17.100
  • And when you shut the door on
  • 00:11:24.090 --> 00:11:25.140
  • them, you shut the door on your
  • 00:11:25.140 --> 00:11:27.130
  • blessing.
  • 00:11:28.090 --> 00:11:31.090
  • Oh, if I had time, I'd prove it
  • 00:11:31.090 --> 00:11:32.120
  • to you.
  • 00:11:32.230 --> 00:11:35.230
  • Hagar shut the door on Sarah
  • 00:11:36.230 --> 00:11:39.230
  • 'cause she was jealous and mad.
  • 00:11:39.230 --> 00:11:42.190
  • Sarah didn't start that fight,
  • 00:11:42.190 --> 00:11:43.220
  • Hagar did.
  • 00:11:43.220 --> 00:11:45.190
  • And God said, "You better go
  • 00:11:45.190 --> 00:11:46.170
  • back home.
  • 00:11:46.170 --> 00:11:48.090
  • The one you're mad at is feeding
  • 00:11:48.090 --> 00:11:49.170
  • you."
  • 00:11:49.170 --> 00:11:52.010
  • My momma would call it cutting
  • 00:11:52.010 --> 00:11:52.280
  • off your nose to spite your
  • 00:11:52.280 --> 00:11:54.100
  • face.
  • 00:11:54.100 --> 00:11:57.040
  • Anytime God doesn't show up the
  • 00:11:57.040 --> 00:11:58.250
  • way you expect him to show up,
  • 00:11:58.250 --> 00:12:00.130
  • you have an issue.
  • 00:12:00.130 --> 00:12:01.290
  • Paul concludes them all in
  • 00:12:01.290 --> 00:12:03.170
  • unbelief, so that they may be
  • 00:12:03.170 --> 00:12:05.230
  • eligible to receive from God.
  • 00:12:05.230 --> 00:12:08.070
  • I want to, I want to dig into
  • 00:12:08.070 --> 00:12:09.100
  • this.
  • 00:12:09.100 --> 00:12:10.000
  • Can I go a little bit deeper
  • 00:12:10.000 --> 00:12:10.210
  • into it?
  • 00:12:10.210 --> 00:12:11.280
  • See, religious people have a
  • 00:12:11.280 --> 00:12:13.240
  • tendency to respond to a
  • 00:12:13.240 --> 00:12:16.100
  • challenge with arrogance.
  • 00:12:17.120 --> 00:12:20.120
  • But what really brings the
  • 00:12:20.120 --> 00:12:22.170
  • challenge to fruition is
  • 00:12:22.170 --> 00:12:24.180
  • humility.
  • 00:12:24.180 --> 00:12:26.160
  • Paul says, "Neither one of you
  • 00:12:26.160 --> 00:12:27.270
  • are right in your thinking.
  • 00:12:27.270 --> 00:12:29.260
  • Bow down."
  • 00:12:29.260 --> 00:12:32.090
  • When they bowed down in chapter
  • 00:12:32.090 --> 00:12:33.250
  • 4, it opened up chapter 5.
  • 00:12:33.250 --> 00:12:36.200
  • Chapter 5 is, "Therefore being
  • 00:12:36.200 --> 00:12:39.140
  • justified by faith, we have
  • 00:12:39.180 --> 00:12:42.180
  • peace with God."
  • 00:12:42.180 --> 00:12:43.230
  • So, to the Orthodox Jew, you're
  • 00:12:43.230 --> 00:12:45.260
  • not going to be justified
  • 00:12:45.260 --> 00:12:47.160
  • because of the meats you don't
  • 00:12:47.160 --> 00:12:48.260
  • eat, and the hands you wash and
  • 00:12:48.260 --> 00:12:50.270
  • the days that you observe.
  • 00:12:50.270 --> 00:12:53.040
  • That's not going to take you in.

  • justified worshiping Diana and

  • having orgies, and you're not
  • 00:12:58.010 --> 00:12:59.270
  • going to be justified by doing

  • your thing, and you're not going

  • us don't have the same IQ.
  • 00:19:24.040 --> 00:19:26.250

  • "We got it and you can't have
  • 00:23:31.190 --> 00:23:32.290

  • out of every jail you try to put
  • 00:23:37.060 --> 00:23:39.230
