"See, sometimes we get so confused with this. We look at the world around us and everything around us seems to be so attractive, the wicked people seem to have things going for it... they have the stuff, and all these friends, and all the fun. Listen, you need to know that those who don't know Jesus are enslaved by sin. .... Riches and worldly pleasures all they get and then it comes to that... and then they have this emptiness, that is deep inside of them. Nothing in this world can satisfy it at all. You cant just live, according to the Word, you can live apart from Jesus Christ. ... When they die, things only get worse not better. Don't envy the wicked, not even for a moment. There joy is only temporary, ours is eternal. Listen, those who know Jesus Christ, and those who live according to God's grace, have something that can not be seen or measured but is nonetheless real. Its real: We are forgiven, we're redeemed, we're justified, we're accepted, given a new name, given a new life, we're adopted, we're reconciled, we're empowered, we're filled, we're gifted and we're commissioned, and listen, we are numbered by the saints who are protected with the angels, (Voice getting louder, increasingly, building up to:) and when we die, we get to go to heaven. What a deal, right?"
The rest of the message included things like this this from a portion of a prayer, in reference to the two mothers of Abraham's sons, I quote:
"Which one do we come from? Which one do we represent? As the Apostle Paul says to those of us who are believers, we are children of the promise. Children of the promise. And God, I know that when you make a promise, you will keep it. We're seen this thru the life of Abraham and Sarah and thru Issac, and now Issac's descendents, all the way down to Jesus Christ, who has come down into this world, and into our lives, and offers to clean up the mess of our lives, that we've made. And so we are grateful today for Jesus, and we are thankful for the grace that was demonstrated, his mercy that was demonstrated when he went to the cross, when he was bound, hand a foot and became the Lamb who took away the sins of the world. And we thank you that was can live in relationship with that person, a personal relationship, and experience the freedom, just like Issac did when he walked away and begun to fulfill that plan that God had for him.Father I thank you. I thank you that we dont have to go to that cross, Thank you that the price has already been payed for our freedom. Help us today to live in the light of your grace, to live in the light of that freedom, and share that light with others..."
Perhaps you should just go see the entire thing, save me a bit of typing,haha.... I do have the link up in purple (if you want to listen in, I recommend not the video but the mp3 method, so you can play it 2X the speed, based on length)
