  • When we understand thatGod has saved us, not by
  • 00:00:05.230 --> 00:00:07.633
  • anything we have done, butbecause of what Jesus has
  • 00:00:07.733 --> 00:00:10.536
  • done, we begin tounderstand salvation.
  • 00:00:10.636 --> 00:00:13.472
  • Join my pastor, RobertMorris, as he explains how
  • 00:00:13.572 --> 00:00:16.075
  • God credits righteousnessinto our accounts when we

  • ROBERT MORRIS: Amazingrighteousness.
  • 00:00:35.694 --> 00:00:38.997
  • Amazing righteousness.
  • 00:00:39.098 --> 00:00:41.066
  • And you may not be amazedyet about righteousness.
  • 00:00:41.166 --> 00:00:44.803
  • But, hopefully in a fewminutes you will be.
  • 00:00:44.903 --> 00:00:47.072
  • Romans 4:1, "What then shallwe say that Abraham,
  • 00:00:47.172 --> 00:00:51.710
  • our father, has foundaccording to the flesh?
  • 00:00:51.810 --> 00:00:57.049
  • For if Abraham was justifiedby works, he has something
  • 00:00:57.149 --> 00:01:01.687
  • to boast about, butnot before God."
  • 00:01:01.787 --> 00:01:04.957
  • Now, remember we talkedabout this last weekend.
  • 00:01:05.057 --> 00:01:07.326
  • No one's going toboast in heaven.
  • 00:01:07.426 --> 00:01:08.994
  • Let me put that in Texan.
  • 00:01:09.094 --> 00:01:11.130
  • There ain't going to beno bragging in heaven.
  • 00:01:11.230 --> 00:01:17.703
  • Verse 3, "For whatis the Scripture say?
  • 00:01:17.803 --> 00:01:19.805
  • Abraham believed God and it wasaccounted to Him
  • 00:01:19.905 --> 00:01:26.445
  • for righteousness.
  • 00:01:26.545 --> 00:01:28.580
  • Now to him who works, thewages are not counted as grace,
  • 00:01:28.680 --> 00:01:32.885
  • but as debt.
  • 00:01:32.985 --> 00:01:34.453
  • But to him who does notwork, but believes on Him
  • 00:01:34.553 --> 00:01:38.023
  • who justifies the ungodly,his faith is accounted
  • 00:01:38.123 --> 00:01:43.195
  • for righteousness."
  • 00:01:43.295 --> 00:01:46.498
  • I want you to just think abouthow amazing this passage is
  • 00:01:46.598 --> 00:01:49.001
  • if the world doesn't knowanything about this,
  • 00:01:49.101 --> 00:01:52.838
  • those that don't know Christthey don't understand this
  • 00:01:52.938 --> 00:01:55.107
  • because if they did, they'd wantto accept Christ.
  • 00:01:55.207 --> 00:01:58.877
  • That you can believe in Jesus,and sin is taken out
  • 00:01:58.977 --> 00:02:03.148
  • of your accountand righteousness
  • 00:02:03.248 --> 00:02:04.583
  • is put in your account.
  • 00:02:04.683 --> 00:02:05.984
  • It's accounted for rightousness,that's amazing to me.
  • 00:02:06.084 --> 00:02:09.755
  • Think about it.
  • 00:02:09.855 --> 00:02:11.023
  • If you go out on the street,and to a mall or sports game
  • 00:02:11.123 --> 00:02:16.028
  • or something and you justinterviewed some people that
  • 00:02:16.128 --> 00:02:18.096
  • don't go to church, thathave never been taught
  • 00:02:18.197 --> 00:02:20.098
  • the Bible, and you said to them,"What do you have to do to
  • 00:02:20.199 --> 00:02:25.804
  • go to heaven?"
  • 00:02:25.904 --> 00:02:27.506
  • What are you going to hear?
  • 00:02:27.606 --> 00:02:29.107
  • What's the answeryou're going to hear?
  • 00:02:29.208 --> 00:02:30.742
  • Be good.
  • 00:02:30.842 --> 00:02:31.510
  • Be a good person.Right.
  • 00:02:31.610 --> 00:02:32.945
  • And some will say it likethis, "Do more good than bad.
  • 00:02:33.045 --> 00:02:37.449
  • Hopefully, at the end ofyour life you have more good in
  • 00:02:37.549 --> 00:02:40.052
  • your account than you do bad andthen you get to go to heaven."
  • 00:02:40.152 --> 00:02:44.256
  • Well, the only problemwith that is, is that God's
  • 00:02:44.356 --> 00:02:46.391
  • standard is notgood, it's perfect.
  • 00:02:46.491 --> 00:02:51.263
  • So, how am I evergoing to get to heaven?
  • 00:02:51.363 --> 00:02:54.566
  • Let me ask you this.
  • 00:02:54.666 --> 00:02:55.901
  • I know when I know no onewill raise their hands on
  • 00:02:56.001 --> 00:02:58.303
  • this first question, I'llask you, too, but no one'll
  • 00:02:58.403 --> 00:03:00.672
  • raise your handson your first one.
  • 00:03:00.772 --> 00:03:02.174
  • I know that because, isthere anyone here that has
  • 00:03:02.274 --> 00:03:06.078
  • broken every law?
  • 00:03:06.178 --> 00:03:09.781
  • Every law.
  • 00:03:09.881 --> 00:03:10.682
  • Well, let me readyou a Scripture.
  • 00:03:10.782 --> 00:03:12.184
  • And I'm going to read itout of The Living Bible.
  • 00:03:12.284 --> 00:03:14.019
  • I know this is a paraphrase.
  • 00:03:14.119 --> 00:03:15.354
  • The guy wrote it for hischildren to be able
  • 00:03:15.454 --> 00:03:17.556
  • to understand the Bible.
  • 00:03:17.656 --> 00:03:19.891
  • But I think it helps usunderstand this Scripture
  • 00:03:19.992 --> 00:03:21.760
  • a little bit.
  • 00:03:21.860 --> 00:03:22.961
  • I like the waythe wording is.
  • 00:03:23.061 --> 00:03:24.429
  • James 2:10 says, "And theperson who keeps every law
  • 00:03:24.529 --> 00:03:28.400
  • of God, but makes one littleslip is just as guilty as the
  • 00:03:28.500 --> 00:03:35.574
  • person who has brokenevery law that there is."
  • 00:03:35.674 --> 00:03:39.811
  • OK.Here's the second question.
  • 00:03:39.911 --> 00:03:41.213
  • See if anyoneraises your hands.
  • 00:03:41.313 --> 00:03:43.248
  • How many of you have madeat least one little slip?
  • 00:03:43.348 --> 00:03:52.291
  • OK, that's kind oflike the death rate.
  • 00:03:52.391 --> 00:03:53.692
  • About 100%.
  • 00:03:53.792 --> 00:03:54.960
  • New King James says it thesame way, "Whoever shall keep
  • 00:03:55.060 --> 00:03:57.296
  • the whole law, yetstumble in one point,
  • 00:03:57.396 --> 00:03:59.665
  • he's guilty of all."OK.
  • 00:03:59.765 --> 00:04:01.266
  • So, if God's standard isperfect and none of us have
  • 00:04:01.366 --> 00:04:05.337
  • been perfect, how dowe get to go to heaven?
  • 00:04:05.437 --> 00:04:07.472
  • It's really simple.
  • 00:04:07.572 --> 00:04:08.407
  • It's real simple.
  • 00:04:08.507 --> 00:04:09.274
  • We believe inthe Perfect One.
  • 00:04:09.374 --> 00:04:13.011
  • The One who did keep thewhole law, Jesus Christ.
  • 00:04:13.111 --> 00:04:16.615
  • Now, look back at Verse 3,because we want to key in on
  • 00:04:16.715 --> 00:04:19.818
  • this Scripture for thewhole message, alright.
  • 00:04:19.918 --> 00:04:22.154
  • It says, "For what doesthe Scripture say, Abraham
  • 00:04:22.254 --> 00:04:25.257
  • believed God."
  • 00:04:25.357 --> 00:04:26.525
  • That's one part thatI want to talk about.
  • 00:04:26.625 --> 00:04:28.193
  • You know how I am.
  • 00:04:28.293 --> 00:04:29.161
  • I like three points.
  • 00:04:29.261 --> 00:04:30.028
  • So, that'll beone of the points.
  • 00:04:30.128 --> 00:04:31.296
  • "Abraham believed God andit was accounted to him."
  • 00:04:31.396 --> 00:04:34.099
  • There's the second part thatwe're going to talk about.
  • 00:04:34.199 --> 00:04:36.134
  • "For righteousness."
  • 00:04:36.234 --> 00:04:38.203
  • And that's the third partthat we're going to talk about.
  • 00:04:38.303 --> 00:04:40.138
  • But I want to flip them.
  • 00:04:40.238 --> 00:04:41.373
  • I want to start withrighteousness and work backward.
  • 00:04:41.473 --> 00:04:43.909
  • Alright?
  • 00:04:44.009 --> 00:04:45.110
  • So, here's point numberone, what is righteousness?
  • 00:04:45.210 --> 00:04:49.881
  • What is righteousness?
  • 00:04:49.981 --> 00:04:52.684
  • Well, if I said to you, "Thatperson is a righteous person."
  • 00:04:52.784 --> 00:04:56.788
  • And you assume that meanshe lives to the best
  • 00:04:56.888 --> 00:04:59.691
  • of his ability righteously.
  • 00:04:59.791 --> 00:05:01.293
  • OK, that's acorrect assumption.
  • 00:05:01.393 --> 00:05:02.527
  • It's just not theonly assumption.
  • 00:05:02.627 --> 00:05:06.932
  • And let me say it to youthis way to get us to think
  • 00:05:07.032 --> 00:05:10.001
  • about grace and works.
  • 00:05:10.102 --> 00:05:12.704
  • Is he righteous becausehe does righteous things?
  • 00:05:12.804 --> 00:05:19.911
  • Or does he do righteousthings because he's righteous?
  • 00:05:20.011 --> 00:05:28.086
  • That's the whole differencebetween grace
  • 00:05:28.186 --> 00:05:29.654
  • and works right there.
  • 00:05:29.755 --> 00:05:31.056
  • See is he righteous in God'ssight because he does
  • 00:05:31.156 --> 00:05:34.326
  • righteous things?
  • 00:05:34.426 --> 00:05:35.961
  • And let me help uswith the word righteous,
  • 00:05:36.061 --> 00:05:38.196
  • the root word is right.
  • 00:05:38.296 --> 00:05:40.332
  • Do the right thing.
  • 00:05:40.432 --> 00:05:41.733
  • So is he right with God becausehe does right things,
  • 00:05:41.833 --> 00:05:47.806
  • or does he do right thingsbecause God by grace
  • 00:05:47.906 --> 00:05:51.910
  • made him right with God.
  • 00:05:52.010 --> 00:05:54.346
  • You see what I'm saying?
  • 00:05:54.446 --> 00:05:55.614
  • That's the differencein grace and works.
  • 00:05:55.714 --> 00:05:57.716
  • I promise you,
  • 00:05:57.816 --> 00:05:59.050
  • the way you, your understandingof grace changes everything
  • 00:05:59.151 --> 00:06:03.855
  • about life.
  • 00:06:03.955 --> 00:06:05.390
  • I even asked a pastor justrecently, I was ministering to,
  • 00:06:05.490 --> 00:06:08.427
  • I said, do you feel like thatyou've had to fight
  • 00:06:08.527 --> 00:06:11.296
  • for everything you have?
  • 00:06:11.396 --> 00:06:12.431
  • He said absolutely.Just like that he said yes,
  • 00:06:12.531 --> 00:06:14.933
  • and he's a good man.
  • 00:06:15.033 --> 00:06:16.802
  • And I said to him,see, that's the difference.
  • 00:06:16.902 --> 00:06:19.104
  • Because I feel like I've beengiven everything I have.
  • 00:06:19.204 --> 00:06:24.676
  • It's by gracethat I have what I have.
  • 00:06:24.776 --> 00:06:27.879
  • The way you understand gracewill affect the way you see
  • 00:06:27.979 --> 00:06:32.384
  • God and relate to God.
  • 00:06:32.484 --> 00:06:35.020
  • It affects the way yousee others and the way you
  • 00:06:35.120 --> 00:06:37.289
  • relate to others.
  • 00:06:37.389 --> 00:06:39.724
  • And it affects, mainly, theway you see yourself and the way
  • 00:06:39.825 --> 00:06:43.562
  • you actually relate toyourself when you stumble
  • 00:06:43.662 --> 00:06:46.832
  • in one little pointor make a mistake.
  • 00:06:46.932 --> 00:06:49.568
  • So, righteousness is, letme explain, and I asked the
  • 00:06:49.668 --> 00:06:52.771
  • question, whatis righteousness?
  • 00:06:52.871 --> 00:06:54.406
  • Righteousness is rightstanding with God.
  • 00:06:54.506 --> 00:06:57.909
  • OK.
  • 00:06:58.009 --> 00:06:59.010
  • That's the easiestdefinition of righteousness.
  • 00:06:59.110 --> 00:07:03.148
  • Righteousness is the stateof being right with God.
  • 00:07:03.248 --> 00:07:08.487
  • So, a righteous personcan do unrighteous things.
  • 00:07:08.587 --> 00:07:10.889
  • Can an unrighteous persondo a righteous deed?
  • 00:07:10.989 --> 00:07:16.094
  • Yeah.Yeah.
  • 00:07:16.194 --> 00:07:17.462
  • An unrighteous person, whohasn't been saved yet,
  • 00:07:17.562 --> 00:07:20.098
  • can do right things.
  • 00:07:20.198 --> 00:07:22.567
  • But, does the righteous deedthat the unrighteous person
  • 00:07:22.667 --> 00:07:31.476
  • does make him righteous?
  • 00:07:31.576 --> 00:07:37.516
  • Okay, let me give you anillustration.
  • 00:07:37.616 --> 00:07:39.251
  • Let's say there's a guy who'snot a believer,
  • 00:07:39.351 --> 00:07:43.555
  • not a Christian, does notbelieve in Jesus,
  • 00:07:43.655 --> 00:07:45.457
  • does not attend a churchanywhere, and he goes out
  • 00:07:45.557 --> 00:07:47.859
  • of town on a business trip, andhe has a really good day.
  • 00:07:47.959 --> 00:07:51.830
  • And he signs up a lot of newaccounts, and one of them
  • 00:07:51.930 --> 00:07:55.133
  • that he signs up is the largestaccount that he's ever
  • 00:07:55.233 --> 00:07:56.968
  • signed up.
  • 00:07:57.068 --> 00:07:58.537
  • And so he eats dinner and thenhe decides to take a walk
  • 00:07:58.637 --> 00:08:01.873
  • and he's feeling really goodabout himself and his day,
  • 00:08:01.973 --> 00:08:04.476
  • and he's walking by thisplayground and a ball
  • 00:08:04.576 --> 00:08:06.478
  • comes over the fence from thekids, and he picks
  • 00:08:06.578 --> 00:08:09.147
  • the ball upand he throws it back.
  • 00:08:09.247 --> 00:08:12.384
  • And then he gets to the corner,street corner and there's
  • 00:08:12.484 --> 00:08:14.653
  • a little old lady, two great bigsacks of groceries,
  • 00:08:14.753 --> 00:08:18.156
  • so he carries the groceries forher, helps her across
  • 00:08:18.256 --> 00:08:20.325
  • the street you know,and goes a few blocks with her
  • 00:08:20.425 --> 00:08:24.262
  • and takes the groceriesto her house.
  • 00:08:24.362 --> 00:08:26.698
  • And then on his way back fromthere he sees a homeless man
  • 00:08:26.798 --> 00:08:29.968
  • sitting on the street and hepulls his wallet out and says
  • 00:08:30.068 --> 00:08:32.170
  • I'm so sorry about your plight,I understand you can get down
  • 00:08:32.270 --> 00:08:34.739
  • on your luck and all, and I'vehad good fortune
  • 00:08:34.839 --> 00:08:37.542
  • so I want to help you some,and he gives him,
  • 00:08:37.642 --> 00:08:39.911
  • you know, some money.
  • 00:08:40.011 --> 00:08:41.413
  • Those are good things,wouldn't you agree?
  • 00:08:41.513 --> 00:08:43.648
  • Those are right things.
  • 00:08:43.748 --> 00:08:46.551
  • Okay, let me tell you aboutanother man.
  • 00:08:46.651 --> 00:08:48.353
  • He's a believer.He loves the Lord.
  • 00:08:48.453 --> 00:08:52.123
  • He attends Gateway church.
  • 00:08:52.223 --> 00:08:54.993
  • We're gonna give hima few extra points.
  • 00:08:55.093 --> 00:08:58.263
  • And so he goes out of town on abusiness trip and he has
  • 00:08:58.363 --> 00:09:00.799
  • a bad day.
  • 00:09:00.899 --> 00:09:02.567
  • He loses several accounts,even his biggest account.
  • 00:09:02.667 --> 00:09:06.571
  • And so after dinnerhe takes a walk.
  • 00:09:06.671 --> 00:09:08.807
  • And he's walking beside aplayground and the ball
  • 00:09:08.907 --> 00:09:11.242
  • comes over the fence, and hekicks the ball into the street
  • 00:09:11.343 --> 00:09:13.812
  • and a bus runs over it.
  • 00:09:13.912 --> 00:09:18.083
  • And he gets to the corner andthere's a little old lady
  • 00:09:18.183 --> 00:09:19.684
  • and she's asking for help and hesays lady I don't have time
  • 00:09:19.784 --> 00:09:21.720
  • and he kind of just shoves herout of the way
  • 00:09:21.820 --> 00:09:23.455
  • and she falls down,breaks her eggs,
  • 00:09:23.555 --> 00:09:26.358
  • and falls in a mud puddle.
  • 00:09:26.458 --> 00:09:30.028
  • And then on his way back to themotel he sees the homeless man
  • 00:09:30.128 --> 00:09:32.931
  • asking for some money and kickshim and says you know,
  • 00:09:33.031 --> 00:09:36.968
  • you ought to get a job, and heeven says a curse word.
  • 00:09:37.068 --> 00:09:40.672
  • Okay, this guy doesn't go toGateway church, okay.
  • 00:09:40.772 --> 00:09:44.609
  • Let's -- let's take that out,but he is a Christian.
  • 00:09:44.709 --> 00:09:50.015
  • Okay, he is a Christian.
  • 00:09:50.115 --> 00:09:53.451
  • Now, let's go back,unrighteous and righteous man.
  • 00:09:53.551 --> 00:09:57.188
  • Does the righteous deed thatthe unrighteous man does,
  • 00:09:57.288 --> 00:10:01.593
  • does that makehim righteous?
  • 00:10:01.693 --> 00:10:03.094
  • Does that make him inright standing with God?
  • 00:10:03.194 --> 00:10:05.096
  • Does it?
  • 00:10:05.196 --> 00:10:05.930
  • Because he doessomething right?
  • 00:10:06.031 --> 00:10:07.032
  • No.
  • 00:10:07.132 --> 00:10:08.066
  • He's got to acceptJesus Christ.
  • 00:10:08.166 --> 00:10:09.701
  • Now listen to me, though.
  • 00:10:09.801 --> 00:10:11.236
  • Does the unrighteous deedthat the righteous man does,
  • 00:10:11.336 --> 00:10:17.809
  • does that makehim unrighteous?
  • 00:10:17.909 --> 00:10:20.178
  • No.
  • 00:10:20.278 --> 00:10:21.479
  • Because I'm righteous by myposition, not by my performance.
  • 00:10:21.579 --> 00:10:27.285
  • Now, it's wrong to do thosethings and I'll suffer
  • 00:10:27.385 --> 00:10:31.222
  • consequences from doingthose things and I can go
  • 00:10:31.322 --> 00:10:33.291
  • down a road to where I couldactually destroy my life
  • 00:10:33.391 --> 00:10:36.094
  • if I allow anger to stayin my life or something.
  • 00:10:36.194 --> 00:10:38.263
  • You see what I'm saying?
  • 00:10:38.363 --> 00:10:39.998
  • But, I'm put in rightstanding with God
  • 00:10:40.098 --> 00:10:41.866
  • by the blood of Jesus.
  • 00:10:41.966 --> 00:10:44.069
  • We have to know that.OK.
  • 00:10:44.169 --> 00:10:45.070
  • So, that's whatrighteousness is.
  • 00:10:45.170 --> 00:10:46.404
  • Here's question number two.
  • 00:10:46.504 --> 00:10:47.539
  • Did Abraham earn it?
  • 00:10:47.639 --> 00:10:50.575
  • Did he earn it?
  • 00:10:50.675 --> 00:10:52.043
  • Well, when you go back toRomans 4:2 says, "If Abraham
  • 00:10:52.143 --> 00:10:54.612
  • was justified by workshe has something to boast
  • 00:10:54.713 --> 00:10:57.382
  • about, but not before God,"for what does the Scripture say?
  • 00:10:57.482 --> 00:11:00.351
  • "Abraham believed God andit was accounted," now we're
  • 00:11:00.452 --> 00:11:04.656
  • going to talk about this,"to Him for righteousness.
  • 00:11:04.756 --> 00:11:06.558
  • Now, to him who works thewages are not counted as grace,
  • 00:11:06.658 --> 00:11:11.029
  • but as debt."
  • 00:11:11.129 --> 00:11:12.130
  • And this word counted,accounted means to keep
  • 00:11:12.230 --> 00:11:15.033
  • records of creditsand debits.
  • 00:11:15.133 --> 00:11:17.102
  • It's accounting.
  • 00:11:17.202 --> 00:11:18.737
  • So, here's what it says.
  • 00:11:18.837 --> 00:11:20.138
  • "Now, to him who works it's notcounted as grace, but as debt."
  • 00:11:20.238 --> 00:11:24.843
  • Okay, here's what that means.
  • 00:11:24.943 --> 00:11:26.444
  • It doesn't mean that it's badfor you to work,
  • 00:11:26.544 --> 00:11:28.713
  • do good works because we'resaved to good works.
  • 00:11:28.813 --> 00:11:31.249
  • To do good works is whatEphesians says.
  • 00:11:31.349 --> 00:11:33.251
  • We're not saved by good works,but we're saved
  • 00:11:33.351 --> 00:11:34.886
  • to do good works.
  • 00:11:34.986 --> 00:11:36.421
  • So it doesn't mean that weshouldn't do good works
  • 00:11:36.521 --> 00:11:38.056
  • and that's counted against us,it's talking about God.
  • 00:11:38.156 --> 00:11:41.559
  • It's saying, if Abraham haddone works,
  • 00:11:41.659 --> 00:11:44.629
  • then God wouldhave owed him.
  • 00:11:44.729 --> 00:11:46.664
  • It would have beena debt to God.
  • 00:11:46.765 --> 00:11:48.933
  • God would have owed himpayment for his good works.
  • 00:11:49.033 --> 00:11:51.469
  • In other words, like ifsomeone came and did a job
  • 00:11:51.569 --> 00:11:53.671
  • at your house, landscapingor something like that,
  • 00:11:53.772 --> 00:11:56.207
  • after they do thejob, you owe them.
  • 00:11:56.307 --> 00:11:59.244
  • You owe them.
  • 00:11:59.344 --> 00:12:00.912
  • It's a debt to you.
  • 00:12:01.012 --> 00:12:02.313
  • You owe them forwhat they did.
  • 00:12:02.413 --> 00:12:04.215
  • So, what he says is, "Goddidn't owe Abraham."
  • 00:12:04.315 --> 00:12:07.552
  • He did not owe him andGod doesn't owe anyone.
  • 00:12:07.652 --> 00:12:10.955
  • So, it's all aboutthis accounting.
  • 00:12:11.055 --> 00:12:12.190
  • Let me draw this outfor you, alright.
  • 00:12:12.290 --> 00:12:15.126
  • Let's do three containers.OK?
  • 00:12:15.226 --> 00:12:18.763
  • Three containers.
  • 00:12:18.863 --> 00:12:21.266
  • And these three containersare going to be like accounts.
  • 00:12:21.366 --> 00:12:24.936
  • Alright?
  • 00:12:25.036 --> 00:12:26.437
  • And what we're going to dois were going to do three
  • 00:12:26.538 --> 00:12:28.239
  • different people here.
  • 00:12:28.339 --> 00:12:30.275
  • We'll actually putnames on them, alright?
  • 00:12:30.375 --> 00:12:31.843
  • What we're going to dois we're going to do the account
  • 00:12:31.943 --> 00:12:33.611
  • of a bad person, theaccount of a good person,
  • 00:12:33.711 --> 00:12:38.316
  • and the account ofa perfect person.
  • 00:12:38.416 --> 00:12:41.019
  • Obviously, this isgoing to be Jesus.
  • 00:12:41.119 --> 00:12:44.756
  • Because He's the only onethat lived a perfect life.
  • 00:12:44.856 --> 00:12:48.660
  • So, this is His account.Alright?
  • 00:12:48.760 --> 00:12:50.929
  • So, now I want to do anaccount of a bad person.
  • 00:12:51.029 --> 00:12:54.699
  • I'm talking about before Hemeets Jesus, before he believes.
  • 00:12:54.799 --> 00:12:59.270
  • I'm going to puta name on it.
  • 00:12:59.370 --> 00:13:00.705
  • OK.Alright, I got one.
  • 00:13:00.805 --> 00:13:01.673
  • I know this guy.
  • 00:13:01.773 --> 00:13:02.774
  • He's really, hewas really bad.
  • 00:13:02.874 --> 00:13:05.376
  • OK.Alright.
  • 00:13:05.476 --> 00:13:06.211
  • Just a random name.
  • 00:13:06.311 --> 00:13:07.378
  • Just a random nameI came up with.
  • 00:13:07.478 --> 00:13:09.147
  • But this is a guy I knowwho was a bad person.
  • 00:13:09.247 --> 00:13:12.917
  • Obviously, I'mtalking about me.
  • 00:13:13.017 --> 00:13:14.519
  • OK.
  • 00:13:14.619 --> 00:13:15.653
  • So, a good person, andagain, just a random name.
  • 00:13:15.753 --> 00:13:19.457
  • No one in particular.
  • 00:13:19.557 --> 00:13:22.227
  • Not trying to earn pointsor anything like that.
  • 00:13:22.327 --> 00:13:24.462
  • So, just random.Random.
  • 00:13:24.562 --> 00:13:27.098
  • OK.Alright.
  • 00:13:27.198 --> 00:13:28.132
  • So, a bad guybefore he got saved.
  • 00:13:28.233 --> 00:13:31.936
  • I didn't get saveduntil I was 19.
  • 00:13:32.036 --> 00:13:33.504
  • I got saved in a motel room.
  • 00:13:33.605 --> 00:13:34.939
  • Debbie got saved at nine.
  • 00:13:35.039 --> 00:13:36.908
  • Nine, OK.
  • 00:13:37.008 --> 00:13:38.142
  • I got saved at 19.
  • 00:13:38.243 --> 00:13:39.911
  • I was delivered from drugs.
  • 00:13:40.011 --> 00:13:41.746
  • She was delivered frombubble gum, you know.
  • 00:13:41.846 --> 00:13:47.986
  • And she's free.
  • 00:13:48.086 --> 00:13:48.887
  • She's totally free.
  • 00:13:48.987 --> 00:13:49.954
  • She's free.
  • 00:13:50.054 --> 00:13:51.089
  • So, OK.
  • 00:13:51.189 --> 00:13:52.991
  • So, what did my account looklike before I got saved?
  • 00:13:53.091 --> 00:13:55.860
  • Now, let's come up with acode "S" is going to stand
  • 00:13:55.960 --> 00:13:59.097
  • for sin, "R" is going tostand for righteous,
  • 00:13:59.197 --> 00:14:03.835
  • like righteous deeds.Alright?
  • 00:14:03.935 --> 00:14:06.571
  • Good deeds, right deeds,doing the right thing.
  • 00:14:06.671 --> 00:14:09.874
  • OK?
  • 00:14:09.974 --> 00:14:11.209
  • So, before I got saved, thisis what my account looked like.
  • 00:14:11.309 --> 00:14:20.285
  • OK?OK, you get the picture?
  • 00:14:20.385 --> 00:14:41.673
  • OK.
  • 00:14:41.773 --> 00:14:42.840
  • But, I did a fewright things.
  • 00:14:42.941 --> 00:14:44.475
  • I did.
  • 00:14:44.575 --> 00:14:45.543
  • I went to my church,church with my parents.
  • 00:14:45.643 --> 00:14:47.612
  • So, I had a few"R's" in my account.
  • 00:14:47.712 --> 00:14:49.948
  • I did a few -- no, thatone wasn't righteous.
  • 00:14:50.048 --> 00:14:55.687
  • OK.Alright?
  • 00:14:55.787 --> 00:14:57.355
  • Debbie's account, on theother hand, really,
  • 00:14:57.455 --> 00:15:00.692
  • looked like this.
  • 00:15:00.792 --> 00:15:03.227
  • I mean, her parents told herto do something, she obeyed.
  • 00:15:03.328 --> 00:15:06.831
  • She had a whole bunch ofrighteous deeds in her account
  • 00:15:06.931 --> 00:15:11.269
  • beforeshe got saved.
  • 00:15:11.369 --> 00:15:12.437
  • But, because she's a human,she had a few, you know,
  • 00:15:12.537 --> 00:15:17.241
  • a few little sinsin her account.
  • 00:15:17.342 --> 00:15:27.952
  • OK.
  • 00:15:28.052 --> 00:15:30.989
  • So, how are we goingto go to heaven?
  • 00:15:31.089 --> 00:15:32.690
  • Here's something else Iwant you to understand.
  • 00:15:32.790 --> 00:15:35.259
  • Even Debbie's righteousness,isn't like Jesus'.
  • 00:15:35.360 --> 00:15:40.164
  • What would Jesus'account look like?
  • 00:15:40.264 --> 00:15:45.636
  • He's just righteous, right?
  • 00:15:45.737 --> 00:15:47.638
  • But even Debbie'srighteousness -- remember
  • 00:15:47.739 --> 00:15:50.875
  • this Scripture, Isaiah 64:6,"All our righteousnesses,"
  • 00:15:50.975 --> 00:15:58.116
  • plural, all our individualacts of righteousness,
  • 00:15:58.216 --> 00:16:04.155
  • "are like filthy rags."
  • 00:16:04.255 --> 00:16:06.691
  • So, actually this "R"could stand for rags.
  • 00:16:06.791 --> 00:16:15.666
  • Debbie had more rags in heraccount before I did.
  • 00:16:21.839 --> 00:16:27.545
  • That makes me feel good.
  • 00:16:27.645 --> 00:16:28.613
  • I've never thought about itthat way.
  • 00:16:28.713 --> 00:16:31.082
  • My wife had an account fullof filthy rags.
  • 00:16:31.182 --> 00:16:35.820
  • Well that makes mefeel so much better.
  • 00:16:35.920 --> 00:16:37.522
  • OK.
  • 00:16:37.622 --> 00:16:39.357
  • So, here's our accounts.OK.
  • 00:16:39.457 --> 00:16:41.926
  • So, if God looks at myaccount He sees all this sin
  • 00:16:42.026 --> 00:16:44.429
  • and He sees filthy rags.
  • 00:16:44.529 --> 00:16:46.998
  • And He looks at Debbie'saccount and he sees sin,
  • 00:16:47.098 --> 00:16:48.666
  • because everyone sins,but He sees filthy rags.
  • 00:16:48.766 --> 00:16:52.770
  • He does not seerighteousness, right
  • 00:16:52.870 --> 00:16:56.174
  • standing with God.
  • 00:16:56.274 --> 00:16:59.877
  • So, what's He going to do?
  • 00:16:59.977 --> 00:17:01.245
  • How am I going to go toheaven when I have sin in my
  • 00:17:01.345 --> 00:17:04.749
  • account, Debbie had sin inher account, Abraham had sin
  • 00:17:04.849 --> 00:17:09.654
  • in his account, and youhave sin in your account?
  • 00:17:09.754 --> 00:17:15.226
  • How am I goingto go to heaven?
  • 00:17:15.326 --> 00:17:16.961
  • And Jesus has righteousnessin his account.
  • 00:17:17.061 --> 00:17:21.833
  • Well, here's whathappened 2.000 years ago.
  • 00:17:21.933 --> 00:17:24.769
  • God took the righteousnessout of His own Son's account and
  • 00:17:24.869 --> 00:17:34.278
  • God put the sins of the wholeworld in His Son's account.
  • 00:17:34.378 --> 00:17:43.454
  • And that's why His Sonwas condemned to death.
  • 00:17:43.554 --> 00:17:48.126
  • Because the Bible says, "Godtook the One who knew no sin
  • 00:17:48.226 --> 00:17:54.565
  • and made Him sin, thatwe might be made the
  • 00:17:54.665 --> 00:17:58.970
  • righteousness of God."
  • 00:17:59.070 --> 00:18:02.240
  • So, when Jesus died forour sins -- you have
  • 00:18:02.340 --> 00:18:04.475
  • to understand, somethinghappened very amazing.
  • 00:18:04.575 --> 00:18:07.445
  • A lot of peopledon't realize this.
  • 00:18:07.545 --> 00:18:09.080
  • Jesus shed His blood and theblood of Jesus erased our sins.
  • 00:18:09.180 --> 00:18:19.757
  • Completely.
  • 00:18:19.857 --> 00:18:21.792
  • And, not only our sins,listen, the blood of Jesus
  • 00:18:21.893 --> 00:18:26.230
  • erased the sins ofthe whole world.
  • 00:18:26.330 --> 00:18:28.466
  • A lot of peopledon't realize this.
  • 00:18:28.566 --> 00:18:30.034
  • Jesus died for the world.
  • 00:18:30.134 --> 00:18:32.036
  • It said, "God was in Jesus,reconciling the world
  • 00:18:32.136 --> 00:18:36.174
  • to Himself," listen to this,"Not imputing," this is the same
  • 00:18:36.274 --> 00:18:39.076
  • word for accounting,"not accounting,"
  • 00:18:39.177 --> 00:18:41.412
  • not counting, "theirsins against them.
  • 00:18:41.512 --> 00:18:44.482
  • God, took away the sin ofthe whole -- I know you think,
  • 00:18:44.582 --> 00:18:48.119
  • "Well, I don'tunderstand that, then
  • 00:18:48.219 --> 00:18:49.820
  • because I know some peoplearen't going to go to heaven."
  • 00:18:49.921 --> 00:18:51.789
  • That's correct.
  • 00:18:51.889 --> 00:18:52.957
  • Because God gave you awill and you have to choose
  • 00:18:53.057 --> 00:18:55.793
  • whether you're going toreceive what Jesus
  • 00:18:55.893 --> 00:18:57.028
  • did for you or not.
  • 00:18:57.128 --> 00:18:58.529
  • But, here, I'm going tomake a shocking statement.
  • 00:18:58.629 --> 00:19:00.464
  • People don't go to hell forsin, because Jesus already
  • 00:19:00.565 --> 00:19:02.767
  • paid for their sin.
  • 00:19:02.867 --> 00:19:03.834
  • They go to hellfor unbelief.
  • 00:19:03.935 --> 00:19:07.972
  • That's why they go to hell.
  • 00:19:08.072 --> 00:19:09.240
  • So, God put all of my sinsin Jesus' account and He erased,
  • 00:19:09.340 --> 00:19:15.646
  • He erasedmy account.
  • 00:19:15.746 --> 00:19:16.814
  • No sin in my account.
  • 00:19:16.914 --> 00:19:17.949
  • But there's alsono righteousness.
  • 00:19:18.049 --> 00:19:20.084
  • But, when I was 19, Ibelieved in Jesus and God
  • 00:19:20.184 --> 00:19:25.022
  • put righteousnessin my account.
  • 00:19:25.122 --> 00:19:26.824
  • When Debbie was 9, shebelieved in Jesus,
  • 00:19:26.924 --> 00:19:29.894
  • God put righteousnessin her account.
  • 00:19:29.994 --> 00:19:31.395
  • When Abraham was 75,he believed
  • 00:19:31.495 --> 00:19:34.565
  • and God put righteousnessin his account.
  • 00:19:34.665 --> 00:19:40.071
  • When did you believe?
  • 00:19:40.171 --> 00:19:42.440
  • Have you believed?
  • 00:19:42.540 --> 00:19:43.841
  • And, here's what Jamestells us about Abraham.
  • 00:19:43.941 --> 00:19:47.345
  • It says, "Abraham putworks to his faith."
  • 00:19:47.445 --> 00:19:50.748
  • In other words, his faithwas active because faith
  • 00:19:50.848 --> 00:19:52.984
  • that's not active isdead, the Bible says.
  • 00:19:53.084 --> 00:19:55.920
  • In other words, when Godsaid, "Move," Abraham moved.
  • 00:19:56.020 --> 00:19:58.522
  • He started obeying.
  • 00:19:58.623 --> 00:19:59.690
  • So, it's not enough tobelieve with just your mind.
  • 00:19:59.790 --> 00:20:02.093
  • Because there's a wholelot of people that do that.
  • 00:20:02.193 --> 00:20:03.828
  • But they still dowhat they want to do.
  • 00:20:03.928 --> 00:20:06.530
  • When you really believe, youstart following Jesus Christ.
  • 00:20:06.631 --> 00:20:14.472
  • So, how did Abraham get it?
  • 00:20:14.572 --> 00:20:18.743
  • Here's point number three,how did Abraham get it?
  • 00:20:18.843 --> 00:20:22.913
  • What did Abraham have to do?
  • 00:20:23.014 --> 00:20:24.849
  • What'd he have to do?
  • 00:20:24.949 --> 00:20:27.885
  • He had to believe.
  • 00:20:27.985 --> 00:20:29.487
  • John 6:28-29, "Then theysaid to Him, 'What shall we
  • 00:20:29.587 --> 00:20:33.791
  • do that we may work the works'"notice plural, "'of God?'
  • 00:20:33.891 --> 00:20:40.398
  • Jesus answered and saidthem, 'This is the work of God,
  • 00:20:40.498 --> 00:20:46.070
  • that you believe in Himwhom He sent.'"
  • 00:20:46.170 --> 00:20:53.177
  • This is the only thing you haveto do.
  • 00:20:53.277 --> 00:20:54.712
  • You have to believe.
  • 00:20:54.812 --> 00:20:56.047
  • But, it has to be in yourheart, not just your head.
  • 00:20:56.147 --> 00:20:59.150
  • OK.
  • 00:20:59.250 --> 00:21:00.251
  • But let me tell yousomething about this story
  • 00:21:00.351 --> 00:21:01.352
  • that a lot ofpeople don't get.
  • 00:21:01.452 --> 00:21:04.522
  • We read about Abraham and wethink Abraham was a really
  • 00:21:04.622 --> 00:21:07.525
  • good guy.
  • 00:21:07.625 --> 00:21:09.327
  • Well, read your Biblea little closer.
  • 00:21:09.427 --> 00:21:11.829
  • They were regular people.
  • 00:21:11.929 --> 00:21:14.532
  • And they had "S's"in their accounts.
  • 00:21:14.632 --> 00:21:17.401
  • And, to let you help you alittle bit with Abraham,
  • 00:21:17.501 --> 00:21:20.071
  • God shows up in Genesis 12,that's when God spoke to him,
  • 00:21:20.171 --> 00:21:23.441
  • that's when Abrahambelieved, and righteousness
  • 00:21:23.541 --> 00:21:27.078
  • was put in his account.
  • 00:21:27.178 --> 00:21:28.212
  • But can I tell you aboutAbraham before Genesis 12?
  • 00:21:28.312 --> 00:21:30.881
  • OK.
  • 00:21:30.981 --> 00:21:31.882
  • Abraham, now this is goingto shock you,
  • 00:21:31.982 --> 00:21:33.484
  • Abraham was a heathen.A heathen.
  • 00:21:33.584 --> 00:21:37.955
  • He was a part of a heathennation.
  • 00:21:38.055 --> 00:21:41.559
  • Okay, let me help you understandthis, okay?
  • 00:21:41.659 --> 00:21:43.994
  • How much of a heathen he was,he is going to a city
  • 00:21:44.095 --> 00:21:47.031
  • and his wife is real pretty, andso he lies about his wife
  • 00:21:47.131 --> 00:21:52.903
  • and says she's my sister so thatthe king could take his wife
  • 00:21:53.003 --> 00:21:58.909
  • and make her one of his haremand abuse her sexually.
  • 00:21:59.009 --> 00:22:05.182
  • And by the way, Abram did this,Abraham did this twice.
  • 00:22:05.282 --> 00:22:13.057
  • You know he got chewed out thefirst time about this
  • 00:22:13.157 --> 00:22:16.961
  • and he does it again.
  • 00:22:17.061 --> 00:22:18.763
  • He does this after he believes.
  • 00:22:18.863 --> 00:22:23.634
  • Tell you something else he didafter he believed,
  • 00:22:23.734 --> 00:22:25.836
  • he sleeps with the housekeeper.
  • 00:22:25.936 --> 00:22:30.641
  • He sleeps with his wife's maidand has a child out of wedlock
  • 00:22:30.741 --> 00:22:37.515
  • after he -- he did this afterhe believed.
  • 00:22:37.615 --> 00:22:42.453
  • What was he likebefore he believed?
  • 00:22:42.553 --> 00:22:47.258
  • So, God shows up one day,Abraham has no concept of God.
  • 00:22:47.358 --> 00:22:52.530
  • None, and He just shows up totalk to him.
  • 00:22:52.630 --> 00:22:55.099
  • I've often wondered what wouldhappen if God said to him
  • 00:22:55.199 --> 00:22:59.036
  • the day before, hey, tomorrow Iwant to talk to you.
  • 00:22:59.136 --> 00:23:06.277
  • How well would he have sleptthat night?
  • 00:23:06.377 --> 00:23:11.215
  • How well would you have slept ifGod said He wanted
  • 00:23:11.315 --> 00:23:14.985
  • to talk to you before youwere a believer.
  • 00:23:15.085 --> 00:23:18.155
  • And what would you think Godwanted to talk to you about?
  • 00:23:18.255 --> 00:23:22.326
  • So, God shows up and in essencethis is what He says to Abraham.
  • 00:23:22.426 --> 00:23:26.764
  • "Abraham, this is going tobe hard for you to believe.
  • 00:23:26.864 --> 00:23:31.702
  • Considering what you'veheard about me and what they
  • 00:23:31.802 --> 00:23:35.005
  • write about me in the mediaand the secular papers, this is
  • 00:23:35.105 --> 00:23:38.409
  • going to be hard for you tobelieve what I'm
  • 00:23:38.509 --> 00:23:40.478
  • about to tell you.
  • 00:23:40.578 --> 00:23:43.214
  • But, I did not cometoday to judge you.
  • 00:23:43.314 --> 00:23:47.651
  • I didn't cometo condemn you.
  • 00:23:47.751 --> 00:23:51.655
  • I didn't come toclean your clock.
  • 00:23:51.755 --> 00:23:56.093
  • And I could.
  • 00:23:56.193 --> 00:23:59.163
  • I came today for one reason.
  • 00:23:59.263 --> 00:24:04.301
  • I came to bless you."
  • 00:24:04.401 --> 00:24:06.370
  • You read it.
  • 00:24:06.470 --> 00:24:07.137
  • Genesis 12.
  • 00:24:07.238 --> 00:24:08.439
  • "It's the only reasonI came," God says.
  • 00:24:08.539 --> 00:24:09.773
  • "I came to bless you."
  • 00:24:09.874 --> 00:24:12.543
  • And Abraham believed.
  • 00:24:12.643 --> 00:24:16.780
  • And when he believed, Godtook sin out of Abraham's
  • 00:24:16.881 --> 00:24:21.452
  • account and putrighteousness in his account.
  • 00:24:21.552 --> 00:24:26.357
  • And Romans 4 says, "That'swhat's God does
  • 00:24:26.457 --> 00:24:28.659
  • for you when you believe."
  • 00:24:28.759 --> 00:24:31.195
  • You know, it really isamazing when you think about it.
  • 00:24:32.029 --> 00:24:35.065
  • That God puts us in rightstanding with Him
  • 00:24:35.165 --> 00:24:39.303
  • because we believe.
  • 00:24:39.403 --> 00:24:40.871
  • Because we put our faithin Jesus Christ, all of our sins
  • 00:24:40.971 --> 00:24:45.342
  • are forgiven and we canbe in right standing with God.
  • 00:24:45.442 --> 00:24:50.247

  • 00:24:50.347 --> 00:24:52.182
