  • when Jesus diedfor that person.
  • 00:00:07.624 --> 00:00:10.293

  • 00:00:10.393 --> 00:00:12.162
  • is that Jesus loves 'em,and wants to change their life.
  • 00:00:12.262 --> 00:00:15.899

  • 00:00:15.999 --> 00:00:29.079

  • This week,"Authentic Witnesses".
  • 00:00:52.635 --> 00:00:55.371
  • In this message, I'm simplytrying to get you
  • 00:00:55.472 --> 00:00:58.641
  • to tell the truth about what'salready happened in your life.
  • 00:00:58.741 --> 00:01:04.114
  • And that is you've met Christ,I just want you to tell someone.
  • 00:01:04.214 --> 00:01:08.051
  • So we're gonna talk about beingauthentic witnesses, alright?
  • 00:01:08.151 --> 00:01:10.820
  • Acts 1, look at Acts 1:4.
  • 00:01:10.920 --> 00:01:14.124
  • "And being assembledtogether with them..."
  • 00:01:14.224 --> 00:01:16.392
  • -- I should'veexplained a little bit.
  • 00:01:16.493 --> 00:01:17.760
  • This is right beforeJesus ascends.
  • 00:01:17.861 --> 00:01:19.796
  • This is the 40 daysafter His resurrection.
  • 00:01:19.896 --> 00:01:24.167
  • This is the 40th day.
  • 00:01:24.267 --> 00:01:25.802
  • And He ascends, and then forten days, they're praying.
  • 00:01:25.902 --> 00:01:28.037
  • And then, the Holy Spirit came.
  • 00:01:28.138 --> 00:01:29.506
  • So, on the 40th day, so: "Beingassembled together with them,
  • 00:01:29.606 --> 00:01:33.209
  • He commanded them not todepart from Jerusalem,
  • 00:01:33.309 --> 00:01:36.913
  • but to wait for the promiseof the Father..."
  • 00:01:37.013 --> 00:01:39.883
  • -- again, that's the comingof the Holy Spirit:
  • 00:01:39.983 --> 00:01:42.085
  • "'Which,' He said,'You've heard from Me.
  • 00:01:42.185 --> 00:01:43.620
  • For John trulybaptized with water,
  • 00:01:43.720 --> 00:01:46.055
  • but you shall be baptizedwith the Holy Spirit
  • 00:01:46.156 --> 00:01:49.392
  • not many days from now.'"
  • 00:01:49.492 --> 00:01:51.327
  • Then, still, they gotoff-track a little bit.
  • 00:01:51.427 --> 00:01:54.063
  • "Therefore when they had cometogether, they asked Him,
  • 00:01:54.164 --> 00:01:56.199
  • saying, 'Lord, willYou at this time
  • 00:01:56.299 --> 00:01:58.001
  • restore the kingdom to Israel?'
  • 00:01:58.101 --> 00:02:00.503
  • And He said to them,'It is not for you to know,'"
  • 00:02:00.603 --> 00:02:03.173
  • -- now, that'sa pretty amazing thing,
  • 00:02:03.273 --> 00:02:04.707
  • that still goes fortoday, by the way.
  • 00:02:04.807 --> 00:02:06.743
  • "'It's not for youto know times or seasons
  • 00:02:06.843 --> 00:02:08.878
  • which the Father hasput in His own authority.
  • 00:02:08.978 --> 00:02:11.080
  • But,'" here's what I'm trying totell you is what He says to 'em:
  • 00:02:11.181 --> 00:02:14.617
  • "'You shall receive power,'"
  • 00:02:14.717 --> 00:02:16.853
  • I want you to notice thosewords, underline them.
  • 00:02:16.953 --> 00:02:20.156
  • You shall, not youmight, but you shall.
  • 00:02:20.256 --> 00:02:24.327
  • You're gonna get it.
  • 00:02:24.427 --> 00:02:25.662
  • You will: "'Get power when theHoly Spirit has come upon you.
  • 00:02:25.762 --> 00:02:28.898
  • And you shall be witnessesto Me in Jerusalem,
  • 00:02:28.998 --> 00:02:36.139
  • and in all Judea and Samaria,and to the end of the earth.'"
  • 00:02:36.239 --> 00:02:40.109
  • Okay, so whatHe's saying is, listen,
  • 00:02:40.210 --> 00:02:41.878
  • when I'm telling youthere's no doubt about it.
  • 00:02:41.978 --> 00:02:44.847
  • When the Holy Spirit comes you,when you're baptized
  • 00:02:44.948 --> 00:02:47.350
  • in the Holy Spirit,you will receive power.
  • 00:02:47.450 --> 00:02:52.455
  • Not some will and some won't.
  • 00:02:52.555 --> 00:02:54.424
  • You will receive.
  • 00:02:54.524 --> 00:02:56.159
  • Dunamis is the word here,where we get our word dynamite.
  • 00:02:56.259 --> 00:03:00.063
  • You will receiveexplosive power,
  • 00:03:00.163 --> 00:03:04.067
  • but notice what He says:"And you will be witnesses..."
  • 00:03:04.167 --> 00:03:11.774
  • -- please see the word be.
  • 00:03:11.874 --> 00:03:15.612
  • You will be witnesses.
  • 00:03:15.712 --> 00:03:19.816
  • He didn't say, "Youwill do witnessing."
  • 00:03:19.916 --> 00:03:27.223
  • You will be a witness to Me.
  • 00:03:27.323 --> 00:03:30.893
  • Now, the question is, are youa witness that talks or not?
  • 00:03:30.994 --> 00:03:38.268
  • Because you are a witness.
  • 00:03:38.368 --> 00:03:40.603
  • If you've met Jesus, something'shappened, you're a witness.
  • 00:03:40.703 --> 00:03:45.975
  • But can we get you totell anybody about it?
  • 00:03:46.075 --> 00:03:48.845
  • Or are you gonna take the fifth?
  • 00:03:48.945 --> 00:03:53.483
  • But you are a witness.
  • 00:03:53.583 --> 00:03:55.418
  • Okay, so since I'm tellingyou, you are a witness,
  • 00:03:55.518 --> 00:03:57.720
  • 'cause Jesus said,"You shall be witnesses."
  • 00:03:57.820 --> 00:04:01.858
  • You will be.So, here's point number one.
  • 00:04:01.958 --> 00:04:05.261
  • What is a witness?
  • 00:04:05.361 --> 00:04:07.930
  • What is a witness?
  • 00:04:08.031 --> 00:04:11.467
  • Since you are one,what is one?
  • 00:04:11.567 --> 00:04:13.569
  • Alright?
  • 00:04:13.670 --> 00:04:15.138
  • Here's the -- my definition.
  • 00:04:15.238 --> 00:04:16.572
  • A witness is someone whohas seen and heard something,
  • 00:04:16.673 --> 00:04:21.811
  • and communicateshis experience accurately.
  • 00:04:21.911 --> 00:04:26.215
  • A witness is someone whohas seen and heard something,
  • 00:04:26.316 --> 00:04:29.252
  • and communicateshis experience accurately.
  • 00:04:29.352 --> 00:04:32.221
  • Now, this seen and heard,you're not even gonna believe
  • 00:04:32.322 --> 00:04:36.559
  • how many times it's in theBible, and I don't have time
  • 00:04:36.659 --> 00:04:38.861
  • to show 'em, all of 'em --all to you.
  • 00:04:38.961 --> 00:04:41.197
  • But I wanna show you a few,and I want you to see some
  • 00:04:41.297 --> 00:04:44.500
  • amazing people in the Biblewho were just witnesses.
  • 00:04:44.600 --> 00:04:50.039
  • This first one'sgonna shock you.
  • 00:04:50.139 --> 00:04:52.942
  • The Son of God Himself,when He came to this earth,
  • 00:04:53.042 --> 00:04:59.549
  • was a witness of what Hehad seen the Father do,
  • 00:04:59.649 --> 00:05:04.220
  • and what He'd heardthe Father say.
  • 00:05:04.320 --> 00:05:06.823
  • In John 3:31-32:"He who comes from above..."
  • 00:05:06.923 --> 00:05:11.060
  • that's Jesus, John the Baptistis talking about Jesus:
  • 00:05:11.160 --> 00:05:13.896
  • "Is above all, he who isof the earth is earthly
  • 00:05:13.996 --> 00:05:16.933
  • and speaks of the earth.
  • 00:05:17.033 --> 00:05:18.000
  • He who comes fromheaven is above all.
  • 00:05:18.101 --> 00:05:20.036
  • And what He has seenand heard, that He testifies."
  • 00:05:20.136 --> 00:05:28.111
  • I just wanna show you howpowerful a witness is.
  • 00:05:28.211 --> 00:05:31.147
  • Jesus is a witness,and He came and testified,
  • 00:05:31.247 --> 00:05:34.384
  • He told people whatHe'd seen and heard,
  • 00:05:34.484 --> 00:05:36.619
  • and it changed the world.
  • 00:05:36.719 --> 00:05:38.388
  • The shepherds werewitnesses at Jesus' birth.
  • 00:05:38.488 --> 00:05:43.860
  • Luke 2:20.
  • 00:05:43.960 --> 00:05:45.261
  • "Then the shepherds returned,glorifying and praising God
  • 00:05:45.361 --> 00:05:47.597
  • for all the things thatthey had heard and seen..."
  • 00:05:47.697 --> 00:05:52.468
  • -- the disciples ofJohn were witnesses,
  • 00:05:52.568 --> 00:05:54.437
  • they came and they said, "Johnwants to know, are you the One?"
  • 00:05:54.537 --> 00:05:58.141
  • Jesus said to 'em, Luke 7:22:"Then Jesus answered
  • 00:05:58.241 --> 00:06:00.810
  • and said to them,'Go and tell John
  • 00:06:00.910 --> 00:06:02.412
  • the things youhave seen and heard.'"
  • 00:06:02.512 --> 00:06:08.050
  • The disciples ofJesus were witnesses.
  • 00:06:08.151 --> 00:06:10.420
  • After the resurrection, they --Peter and John heals a man
  • 00:06:10.520 --> 00:06:15.491
  • at the temple,at gate Beautiful,
  • 00:06:15.591 --> 00:06:17.260
  • and then they beat 'em,and then they tell 'em,
  • 00:06:17.360 --> 00:06:20.830
  • "You stop testifying."
  • 00:06:20.930 --> 00:06:23.399
  • Think about the word testify,when you go to court.
  • 00:06:23.499 --> 00:06:25.368
  • Testify.Y'all stop testifying.
  • 00:06:25.468 --> 00:06:28.438
  • This was their answer.Acts 4:20.
  • 00:06:28.538 --> 00:06:30.706
  • "We cannot but speak the thingswhich we have seen and heard."
  • 00:06:30.807 --> 00:06:36.612
  • I wish every Christianfelt that way.
  • 00:06:36.712 --> 00:06:39.315
  • I have to talk aboutwhat I've experienced.
  • 00:06:39.415 --> 00:06:43.619
  • The greatest apostle who everlived, Paul, was just a witness.
  • 00:06:43.719 --> 00:06:51.461
  • When he's conveying how he gotsaved, this is what he says.
  • 00:06:51.561 --> 00:06:56.499
  • He says that the angel said toAnanias, who said to him then,
  • 00:06:56.599 --> 00:07:01.003
  • Acts 22:15: "For youwill be His witness
  • 00:07:01.103 --> 00:07:06.576
  • to all men of whatyou have seen and heard."
  • 00:07:06.676 --> 00:07:11.914
  • And then, John, who's writinglater in life, in 1 John,
  • 00:07:12.014 --> 00:07:19.655
  • the other apostlehad already died,
  • 00:07:19.755 --> 00:07:22.225
  • and he writes this to kindof set the record straight,
  • 00:07:22.325 --> 00:07:24.660
  • because what had happened wasthey were beginning to say
  • 00:07:24.760 --> 00:07:28.464
  • things like, "Well, Jesus didn'tactually come in the flesh,
  • 00:07:28.564 --> 00:07:32.735
  • but this and this and this,"and I don't have time
  • 00:07:32.835 --> 00:07:34.904
  • to go into all the Gnosticismthat was going on at the time,
  • 00:07:35.004 --> 00:07:38.241
  • but this how he starts 1 John.
  • 00:07:38.341 --> 00:07:40.676
  • 1 John 1:1-3.
  • 00:07:40.776 --> 00:07:42.712
  • "That which was from thebeginning, which we have heard,
  • 00:07:42.812 --> 00:07:48.184
  • which we have seenwith our eyes,
  • 00:07:48.284 --> 00:07:51.921
  • which we have looked uponand our hands have handled,
  • 00:07:52.021 --> 00:07:55.791
  • concerning the Word of Life-- the life was manifested,
  • 00:07:55.892 --> 00:07:59.061
  • and we have seenand bear witness."
  • 00:07:59.161 --> 00:08:03.099
  • We're witnesses'cause we saw it:
  • 00:08:03.199 --> 00:08:05.868
  • "And declare to youthat eternal life,
  • 00:08:05.968 --> 00:08:07.637
  • which was with the Fatherand was manifested to us --
  • 00:08:07.737 --> 00:08:09.972
  • that which we have seenand heard, we declare to you,
  • 00:08:10.072 --> 00:08:15.978
  • that you also may havefellowship with us.
  • 00:08:16.078 --> 00:08:17.780
  • And truly our fellowshipis with the Father,
  • 00:08:17.880 --> 00:08:19.649
  • and with His SonJesus Christ."
  • 00:08:19.749 --> 00:08:21.317
  • Okay, their witnesswas so strong,
  • 00:08:21.417 --> 00:08:23.986
  • because they were saying,"Guys, we saw Him.
  • 00:08:24.086 --> 00:08:28.424
  • We heard Him."
  • 00:08:28.524 --> 00:08:30.159
  • Now, what you mightbe thinking is,
  • 00:08:30.259 --> 00:08:32.228
  • "Well, I wasn'talive at that time."
  • 00:08:32.328 --> 00:08:34.497
  • But listen to me,I was in a motel room
  • 00:08:34.597 --> 00:08:37.133
  • when I was 19-years-old.
  • 00:08:37.233 --> 00:08:38.501
  • I had been addicted to drugs,and I'm telling you,
  • 00:08:38.601 --> 00:08:40.770
  • I saw Him, and I heard Him,but not in the natural.
  • 00:08:40.870 --> 00:08:45.141
  • But my life was changed.
  • 00:08:45.241 --> 00:08:47.677
  • So I'm a witness,because I had met Him.
  • 00:08:47.777 --> 00:08:52.214
  • And you've met Himtoo, if you're saved,
  • 00:08:52.315 --> 00:08:54.584
  • and you've talked to Him;you've heard Him.
  • 00:08:54.684 --> 00:08:57.620
  • You've seen His glory,you've seen what He's done.
  • 00:08:57.720 --> 00:09:00.489
  • See, I think sometimes thatthe world is throwing out
  • 00:09:00.590 --> 00:09:03.726
  • our witness, because we're nottestifying about
  • 00:09:03.826 --> 00:09:07.897
  • what we personallyhave seen and heard.
  • 00:09:07.997 --> 00:09:12.535
  • You know, if you do that incourt, it's called hearsay.
  • 00:09:12.635 --> 00:09:16.305
  • It's also calledinadmissible evidence.
  • 00:09:16.405 --> 00:09:21.978
  • How many Christiansare going around,
  • 00:09:22.078 --> 00:09:23.279
  • testifying about whatothers have seen and heard,
  • 00:09:23.379 --> 00:09:25.982
  • instead of what youhave seen and heard?
  • 00:09:26.082 --> 00:09:29.719
  • Think about -- again, we'retalking about being a witness.
  • 00:09:29.819 --> 00:09:32.388
  • Okay, so let's say today, afterthe service, you go out to eat,
  • 00:09:32.488 --> 00:09:36.058
  • and -- with yourfamily or friends,
  • 00:09:36.158 --> 00:09:38.561
  • and you come outof the restaurant,
  • 00:09:38.661 --> 00:09:39.729
  • and you're standing there,and everyone's talking --
  • 00:09:39.829 --> 00:09:41.864
  • you just happen to look, and younotice the light changes,
  • 00:09:41.964 --> 00:09:44.900
  • you see what's -- thatthe red light changes
  • 00:09:45.001 --> 00:09:47.169
  • at the intersection,and a car comes through,
  • 00:09:47.269 --> 00:09:48.971
  • and hits another car.
  • 00:09:49.071 --> 00:09:51.140
  • And you see it, and you sawwhat color the light was.
  • 00:09:51.240 --> 00:09:55.044
  • And then, the policeman actuallycomes and he -- then he
  • 00:09:55.144 --> 00:09:57.413
  • -- y'all are there,like, trying to --
  • 00:09:57.513 --> 00:09:58.848

  • And the ambulance comes, okay.

  • "Did anybody see what happened?"
  • 00:10:06.022 --> 00:10:08.858
  • And you say, "I did."

  • if you have to go to court, letme just ask you a question.
  • 00:10:20.770 --> 00:10:23.039
  • You're gonna bea witness now in court.
  • 00:10:23.139 --> 00:10:24.707
  • Are you gonna have togo to automotive school?
  • 00:10:24.807 --> 00:10:30.513
  • So you can testify aboutcars and brakes and --
  • 00:10:30.613 --> 00:10:35.851
  • are you gonna have to -- is thatwhat they want you to tell?
  • 00:10:35.951 --> 00:10:38.554
  • Are you gonna have togo to red light school?
  • 00:10:38.654 --> 00:10:44.560
  • What do they want you to do?
  • 00:10:44.660 --> 00:10:46.962
  • They just want you totell, that's right,
  • 00:10:47.063 --> 00:10:48.297
  • what you saw and what you heard.
  • 00:10:48.397 --> 00:10:52.334
  • Now, we can get betterat it, we can learn,
  • 00:10:52.435 --> 00:10:55.304
  • but what I'm trying to tell youis there's a story
  • 00:10:55.404 --> 00:10:58.941
  • that you could share fiveminutes after you get saved.
  • 00:10:59.041 --> 00:11:06.415
  • And no one would even haveto tell you to tell it.
  • 00:11:06.515 --> 00:11:08.117
  • I have a friendwho's a pastor now
  • 00:11:08.217 --> 00:11:10.486
  • who got saved tryingto commit suicide.
  • 00:11:10.586 --> 00:11:17.093
  • He was going to puthis head in an oven.
  • 00:11:17.193 --> 00:11:19.495
  • Now, here's the part ofthe story you need to know.
  • 00:11:19.595 --> 00:11:23.432
  • He was stoned at the time,and it was an electric oven.
  • 00:11:23.532 --> 00:11:29.205
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:11:29.305 --> 00:11:33.309
  • But he stuck his --he turned the oven on,
  • 00:11:33.409 --> 00:11:35.478
  • put his head in the oven,it got hot,
  • 00:11:35.578 --> 00:11:39.982
  • he started thinking about howhe didn't wanna go to hell,
  • 00:11:40.082 --> 00:11:45.988
  • and he gave his life to Jesus.
  • 00:11:46.088 --> 00:11:48.424
  • Some people had been tellinghim about Jesus,
  • 00:11:48.524 --> 00:11:50.192
  • and so, he got saved.
  • 00:11:50.292 --> 00:11:52.094
  • Instantly, he wasn'tstoned anymore.
  • 00:11:52.194 --> 00:11:54.263
  • He got so excited,and that night,
  • 00:11:54.363 --> 00:11:56.966
  • his friend comes over to party,
  • 00:11:57.066 --> 00:11:58.400
  • and his friends --he says to 'em,
  • 00:11:58.501 --> 00:11:59.869
  • "I'm not partying anymore;I got saved."
  • 00:11:59.969 --> 00:12:02.238
  • And the guy says,"Well, how did you get saved?"
  • 00:12:02.338 --> 00:12:07.309
  • He says, "I'd like to getsaved, too."
  • 00:12:07.409 --> 00:12:08.577
  • True story: this guy says,
  • 00:12:08.677 --> 00:12:09.945
  • "Come here; putyour head in the oven."
  • 00:12:10.045 --> 00:12:11.680
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:12:11.781 --> 00:12:16.552
  • He turned the oven on.
  • 00:12:16.652 --> 00:12:18.454
  • "Feel how hot that's getting?You wanna go to hell?
  • 00:12:18.554 --> 00:12:21.190
  • Alright, pray this prayer.
  • 00:12:21.290 --> 00:12:22.691
  • 'Jesus, come into my heart.'"
  • 00:12:22.792 --> 00:12:31.033
  • He led the guy to the Lord,never been to seminary.
  • 00:12:31.133 --> 00:12:38.808
  • Because he toldwhat he personally --
  • 00:12:38.908 --> 00:12:41.143
  • what personally happened to him.
  • 00:12:41.243 --> 00:12:42.545
  • It's the most powerfulstory you have,
  • 00:12:42.645 --> 00:12:46.348
  • what personally happened to you.
  • 00:12:46.448 --> 00:12:49.285
  • You can be a witness.
  • 00:12:49.385 --> 00:12:52.488
  • Here's number two:A witness doesn't argue.
  • 00:12:52.588 --> 00:12:58.761
  • Now, this is really important.
  • 00:12:58.861 --> 00:13:01.764
  • You don't have to argue withpeople when you're a witness.
  • 00:13:01.864 --> 00:13:04.633
  • You just tell 'emwhat happened to you.
  • 00:13:04.733 --> 00:13:07.236
  • My story -- you know, my story,I was -- drugs, you know?
  • 00:13:07.336 --> 00:13:12.107
  • Debbie and I went back toour high school reunions.
  • 00:13:12.208 --> 00:13:14.543
  • I don't remember if itwas our 10 or 20th one,
  • 00:13:14.643 --> 00:13:17.246
  • but this lady came up,and she'd been drinking,
  • 00:13:17.346 --> 00:13:23.118
  • And she's like, "Whathave you been doing?"
  • 00:13:23.219 --> 00:13:24.787
  • And you know, she's just --you know, so I said to her,
  • 00:13:24.887 --> 00:13:27.823
  • "I'm a minister."
  • 00:13:27.923 --> 00:13:29.625
  • She -- "You don't mean likea minister in church, do you?"
  • 00:13:29.725 --> 00:13:37.032
  • I said, "Yes."
  • 00:13:37.132 --> 00:13:38.300
  • "You're a minister?"
  • 00:13:38.400 --> 00:13:39.869
  • I said, "Yes."
  • 00:13:39.969 --> 00:13:41.070
  • She said, "Weren't youa drug dealer in high school?"
  • 00:13:41.170 --> 00:13:47.810
  • I just shared my story; here'swhat I'm telling you:
  • 00:13:47.910 --> 00:13:49.812
  • I don't have to argue.
  • 00:13:49.912 --> 00:13:53.282
  • As a matter of fact, you can'targue with my testimony.
  • 00:13:53.382 --> 00:14:00.356
  • You can't argue with it.
  • 00:14:00.456 --> 00:14:03.525
  • You can go to my hometownand talk to people who knew me
  • 00:14:03.626 --> 00:14:06.161
  • before, it's verifiable.
  • 00:14:06.262 --> 00:14:10.366
  • You could go tothe police station,
  • 00:14:10.466 --> 00:14:11.634
  • and there's a record of it.
  • 00:14:11.734 --> 00:14:13.102
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:14:13.202 --> 00:14:17.706
  • Listen to me carefullyon this, alright?
  • 00:14:17.806 --> 00:14:20.676
  • We get so hung up onthe person's actions,
  • 00:14:20.776 --> 00:14:25.114
  • or the person's beliefs.
  • 00:14:25.214 --> 00:14:28.017
  • We argue with 'emabout politics,
  • 00:14:28.117 --> 00:14:29.852
  • we argue with 'em aboutwhatever they're --
  • 00:14:29.952 --> 00:14:33.222
  • drinking or they're,you know, married or not,
  • 00:14:33.322 --> 00:14:35.991
  • or living together,or this or that.
  • 00:14:36.091 --> 00:14:37.927
  • We argue about all these things,when Jesus died for that person.
  • 00:14:38.027 --> 00:14:44.300
  • And the most importantthing to tell 'em
  • 00:14:44.400 --> 00:14:46.168
  • is that Jesus loves 'em,and wants to change their life.
  • 00:14:46.268 --> 00:14:49.838
  • Don't get caughtup, you follow me?
  • 00:14:49.939 --> 00:14:51.540
  • So I'm gonna give yousome real wisdom here,
  • 00:14:51.640 --> 00:14:54.677
  • I want you to remember this.
  • 00:14:54.777 --> 00:14:56.378
  • In other words, I am notshocked when people sin.
  • 00:14:56.478 --> 00:15:01.283
  • That does not shock me.
  • 00:15:01.383 --> 00:15:02.618
  • If you notice, itnever shocked Jesus.
  • 00:15:02.718 --> 00:15:05.921
  • He wasn't shocked when the womanwas caught in adultery, like,
  • 00:15:06.021 --> 00:15:09.158
  • "You mean humans do that?"
  • 00:15:09.258 --> 00:15:10.326
  • It didn't shock Him.
  • 00:15:10.426 --> 00:15:12.194
  • It didn't shock Him whenthe woman had five husbands.
  • 00:15:12.294 --> 00:15:15.264
  • It didn't -- none ofthis shocked Jesus.
  • 00:15:15.364 --> 00:15:18.233
  • The reason is becauseGod understands that,
  • 00:15:18.334 --> 00:15:20.469
  • He knows we sin, that's why Hesent Jesus to die for our sins.
  • 00:15:20.569 --> 00:15:23.472
  • So let me give you -- youmight even write this down,
  • 00:15:23.572 --> 00:15:27.176
  • just never forget whatI'm about to tell you, okay?
  • 00:15:27.276 --> 00:15:30.112
  • This is why youshouldn't get shocked
  • 00:15:30.212 --> 00:15:32.314
  • when a sinner sins, okay?
  • 00:15:32.414 --> 00:15:35.317
  • Dogs bark, cats meow,sinners sin.
  • 00:15:35.417 --> 00:15:48.964
  • That's why they'recalled sinners.
  • 00:15:49.064 --> 00:15:56.338
  • Okay, let me give you -- letme make it even more plain.
  • 00:15:56.438 --> 00:15:59.942
  • Hunters hunt, liars...
  • 00:16:00.042 --> 00:16:08.851
  • golfers...
  • 00:16:08.951 --> 00:16:10.185
  • yeah, I said that one time.
  • 00:16:10.285 --> 00:16:11.220
  • Yeah, did you say -- I said lie.
  • 00:16:11.320 --> 00:16:16.392
  • That's true, but it's not theword I was looking for, okay?
  • 00:16:16.492 --> 00:16:19.261
  • Hunters hunt, golfersgolf, sinners sin.
  • 00:16:19.361 --> 00:16:25.167
  • Somehow, we expectthem to know the rules,
  • 00:16:25.267 --> 00:16:28.771
  • but we didn't know the rules.
  • 00:16:28.871 --> 00:16:32.107
  • I remember the firsttime I went overseas,
  • 00:16:32.207 --> 00:16:35.077
  • and some places overseasare not like this,
  • 00:16:35.177 --> 00:16:36.912
  • some are still likethis, to this day.
  • 00:16:37.012 --> 00:16:38.647
  • The Philippines is stilllike this to this day,
  • 00:16:38.747 --> 00:16:41.083
  • we were there a year orso ago, Debbie and I.
  • 00:16:41.183 --> 00:16:43.452
  • And you pull upto an intersection,
  • 00:16:43.552 --> 00:16:45.287
  • and there's like fourlanes, but there's six cars,
  • 00:16:45.387 --> 00:16:48.457
  • and four mopeds.
  • 00:16:48.557 --> 00:16:50.592
  • Right?
  • 00:16:50.692 --> 00:16:52.461
  • And it -- you'd think,why do you even have lines?
  • 00:16:52.561 --> 00:16:56.965
  • That people don'tstay in the lines,
  • 00:16:57.066 --> 00:16:58.400
  • they go all over the place.
  • 00:16:58.500 --> 00:16:59.435
  • Well, the first timeI was in another country
  • 00:16:59.535 --> 00:17:00.836
  • where they did this,I was just --
  • 00:17:00.936 --> 00:17:02.638
  • people just whizzingby and just like
  • 00:17:02.738 --> 00:17:05.641
  • six cars in four lanes,going down the road.
  • 00:17:05.741 --> 00:17:08.110
  • They weren't stayingin their lanes at all,
  • 00:17:08.210 --> 00:17:10.012
  • and I remember sayingto the missionary,
  • 00:17:10.112 --> 00:17:11.413
  • "I bet you have a lot ofcar wrecks over here."
  • 00:17:11.513 --> 00:17:14.383
  • He said, "We don't have verymany car wrecks at all."
  • 00:17:14.483 --> 00:17:17.286
  • And then, he said,"Do you know which country
  • 00:17:17.386 --> 00:17:18.587
  • is number one in car wrecks?"
  • 00:17:18.687 --> 00:17:23.358
  • America.
  • 00:17:23.459 --> 00:17:25.027
  • And I got thinkingabout it, you know why?
  • 00:17:25.127 --> 00:17:27.296
  • Because we expect youto stay in your line.
  • 00:17:27.396 --> 00:17:31.767
  • Right?
  • 00:17:31.867 --> 00:17:33.135
  • In other countries, they don'texpect you to stay in the line.
  • 00:17:33.235 --> 00:17:37.005
  • They know you're notgonna stay in the line,
  • 00:17:37.106 --> 00:17:38.774
  • so they're watching for you.
  • 00:17:38.874 --> 00:17:41.510
  • If someone comes in ourlane, we're just shocked.
  • 00:17:41.610 --> 00:17:47.549
  • And we're offended if theyget close to the lane.
  • 00:17:47.649 --> 00:17:51.887
  • Stay in your lane, stay inyour lane, stay in your lane.
  • 00:17:51.987 --> 00:17:58.760
  • You were coming intomy lane, I saw you.
  • 00:17:58.861 --> 00:18:02.865
  • And then, when we go by,we give 'em the look, right?
  • 00:18:02.965 --> 00:18:06.502
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:18:06.602 --> 00:18:13.442
  • That happened to me one time.
  • 00:18:13.542 --> 00:18:15.477
  • I give this guy the look,and then a little while,
  • 00:18:15.577 --> 00:18:18.413
  • my cell phone rings.
  • 00:18:18.514 --> 00:18:19.681
  • This guy said, "Pastor Robert,did I do something wrong?"
  • 00:18:19.781 --> 00:18:21.450
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:18:21.550 --> 00:18:28.657
  • Not supposed to givechurch members the look.
  • 00:18:28.757 --> 00:18:35.430
  • Here's the reasonI'm not gonna argue
  • 00:18:35.531 --> 00:18:38.300
  • with a sinner about politics.
  • 00:18:38.400 --> 00:18:43.772
  • Because that's notwhat matters right now.
  • 00:18:43.872 --> 00:18:46.642
  • What matters is did you knowwhat Jesus did for you?
  • 00:18:46.742 --> 00:18:51.513
  • You follow me?
  • 00:18:51.613 --> 00:18:52.814
  • I was getting my haircut onetime, and this was years ago,
  • 00:18:52.915 --> 00:18:56.218
  • and there was this younglady cutting my hair,
  • 00:18:56.318 --> 00:18:57.853
  • it was in January, and shestarted talking about --
  • 00:18:57.953 --> 00:19:01.924
  • she said -- she started talkingabout her boyfriend,
  • 00:19:02.024 --> 00:19:05.727
  • and she was telling methat they'd live together.
  • 00:19:05.827 --> 00:19:08.263
  • I didn't go -- you know,you're not married?
  • 00:19:08.363 --> 00:19:10.966
  • You live together?
  • 00:19:11.066 --> 00:19:12.901
  • Do you know that's adultery?
  • 00:19:13.001 --> 00:19:14.269
  • You know, I didn't --because she doesn't know.
  • 00:19:14.369 --> 00:19:17.773
  • Paul said, "I would not haveknown not to covet
  • 00:19:17.873 --> 00:19:21.743
  • if the law hadn't told menot to covet."
  • 00:19:21.843 --> 00:19:23.879
  • I wouldn't have known.
  • 00:19:23.979 --> 00:19:25.247
  • So that's not the issue.
  • 00:19:25.347 --> 00:19:27.783
  • So I didn't say a word.
  • 00:19:27.883 --> 00:19:28.850
  • She's talking aboutthat they live together,
  • 00:19:28.951 --> 00:19:30.185
  • and then she talked abouthow they got really drunk
  • 00:19:30.285 --> 00:19:31.954
  • on New Year's Eve.
  • 00:19:32.054 --> 00:19:33.589
  • And she said, "And then westarted talking about --
  • 00:19:33.689 --> 00:19:37.292
  • the next day, about we didn'twant to live that way,
  • 00:19:37.392 --> 00:19:39.661
  • we didn't wanna getdrunk like that anymore."
  • 00:19:39.761 --> 00:19:42.231
  • So she said, "So we startedgoing to church."
  • 00:19:42.331 --> 00:19:45.434
  • And she said, "We've beencoming to your church
  • 00:19:45.534 --> 00:19:46.935
  • for a couple of weeks now,and we really like,
  • 00:19:47.035 --> 00:19:49.504
  • you know, your preaching."
  • 00:19:49.605 --> 00:19:50.539
  • And I said,"Well, that's great."
  • 00:19:50.639 --> 00:19:51.907
  • And then, I said -- we kept ontalking, and then I said to her,
  • 00:19:52.007 --> 00:19:56.478
  • "Has anyone ever told youhow you can be saved?"
  • 00:19:56.578 --> 00:20:00.716
  • We're just talking,and she said, "No."
  • 00:20:00.816 --> 00:20:04.753
  • She said, "I thought you gotsaved by going to church."
  • 00:20:04.853 --> 00:20:07.856
  • I said, "No,that's not it at all.
  • 00:20:07.956 --> 00:20:09.291
  • It's good to go to church," andthen I just explained it to her,
  • 00:20:09.391 --> 00:20:11.393
  • in about five minutes,the gospel.
  • 00:20:11.493 --> 00:20:14.363
  • And you could -- tears startedwelling up in her eyes.
  • 00:20:14.463 --> 00:20:18.000
  • And I said, "You can besaved right now."
  • 00:20:18.100 --> 00:20:20.769
  • And she said, "I want to."
  • 00:20:20.869 --> 00:20:22.437
  • So I led her to the Lord,right there in the salon.
  • 00:20:22.537 --> 00:20:24.973
  • Then, her boyfriend got saved.
  • 00:20:25.073 --> 00:20:26.275
  • Then, they got baptized.
  • 00:20:26.375 --> 00:20:28.710
  • But I didn't sayone thing to her about
  • 00:20:28.810 --> 00:20:32.247
  • them living togetherand getting drunk.
  • 00:20:32.347 --> 00:20:33.749
  • That's not the issue.
  • 00:20:33.849 --> 00:20:35.484
  • Are you following me?
  • 00:20:35.584 --> 00:20:37.286
  • That's what Jesus died for.
  • 00:20:37.386 --> 00:20:38.787
  • He'll take care ofall those things.
  • 00:20:38.887 --> 00:20:42.924
  • So I just want youto know that a witness
  • 00:20:43.025 --> 00:20:46.161
  • is someone who's seenand heard something,
  • 00:20:46.261 --> 00:20:47.863
  • and experienced something,and he accurately
  • 00:20:47.963 --> 00:20:50.132
  • tells us about it,and a witness doesn't argue,
  • 00:20:50.232 --> 00:20:53.335
  • he just tells his story.
  • 00:20:53.435 --> 00:20:55.504
  • And here's the thirdthing I wanna tell you,
  • 00:20:55.604 --> 00:20:57.105
  • witnessing is fun.
  • 00:20:57.205 --> 00:21:00.442
  • It's just fun.
  • 00:21:00.542 --> 00:21:02.811
  • It is a lot of fun to just sharewith people what God's done.
  • 00:21:02.911 --> 00:21:10.652
  • And just be open,and whenever God
  • 00:21:10.752 --> 00:21:13.055
  • says to do something, you know?
  • 00:21:13.155 --> 00:21:14.589
  • I remember one time,I was standing in line
  • 00:21:14.690 --> 00:21:16.358
  • at the restaurant,and it was one of those
  • 00:21:16.458 --> 00:21:18.794
  • where you didn't give yourcredit card to the server,
  • 00:21:18.894 --> 00:21:21.830
  • it's where you took your ticket,
  • 00:21:21.930 --> 00:21:23.098
  • and you went up, and you paidat a cash register,
  • 00:21:23.198 --> 00:21:25.634
  • you know, to go out.
  • 00:21:25.734 --> 00:21:27.669
  • And I was just standingthere, waiting to pay,
  • 00:21:27.769 --> 00:21:29.171
  • and there were three orfour people in front of me,
  • 00:21:29.271 --> 00:21:30.505
  • three or four peoplebehind me, and I'd step up,
  • 00:21:30.605 --> 00:21:32.407
  • and they stepped up, and thenwhen I stepped up --
  • 00:21:32.507 --> 00:21:34.142
  • when I handed the guy my slip --my bill, and the credit card,
  • 00:21:34.242 --> 00:21:39.948
  • when I handed it to him,I just had this thought
  • 00:21:40.048 --> 00:21:43.218
  • come to my mind.
  • 00:21:43.318 --> 00:21:44.986
  • And he wasn't evenlooking at me,
  • 00:21:45.087 --> 00:21:46.021
  • he just kinda took it like this.
  • 00:21:46.121 --> 00:21:47.489
  • Just took it.
  • 00:21:47.589 --> 00:21:49.024
  • And I just said to him,"Would you like someone
  • 00:21:49.124 --> 00:21:51.793
  • to tell you how to be saved?"
  • 00:21:51.893 --> 00:21:54.663
  • Now, I normally don't startwith that when I'm witnessing.
  • 00:21:54.763 --> 00:22:00.235
  • But it just came tomy mind, and I said,
  • 00:22:00.335 --> 00:22:02.137
  • "Would you like someone totell you how to be saved?"
  • 00:22:02.237 --> 00:22:03.839
  • He went like this.
  • 00:22:03.939 --> 00:22:05.006
  • "Yes, I've been readingthe Bible for three months
  • 00:22:05.107 --> 00:22:06.441
  • trying to figure outhow to be saved."
  • 00:22:06.541 --> 00:22:10.412
  • And I said, "I know,I know how to be saved."
  • 00:22:10.512 --> 00:22:15.650
  • And I shared with him,he called someone else
  • 00:22:15.751 --> 00:22:17.919
  • to take the register.
  • 00:22:18.019 --> 00:22:19.087
  • I found out later he wasthe owner of the restaurant.
  • 00:22:19.187 --> 00:22:20.789
  • We stepped over to the side.
  • 00:22:20.889 --> 00:22:21.957
  • He calls his wife over then,I share with both of 'em.
  • 00:22:22.057 --> 00:22:24.326
  • Both of 'em accepted Christ.
  • 00:22:24.426 --> 00:22:26.461
  • Just like that;that's fun.
  • 00:22:26.561 --> 00:22:29.264
  • That's fun.
  • 00:22:29.364 --> 00:22:31.833
  • So I'm telling you,you are a witness,
  • 00:22:31.933 --> 00:22:37.005
  • because you have seenand heard something.
  • 00:22:37.105 --> 00:22:40.342
  • You have experienced --if you've accepted Christ,
  • 00:22:40.442 --> 00:22:42.477
  • you've experienced something.
  • 00:22:42.577 --> 00:22:45.480
  • You've -- you're a witness.
  • 00:22:45.580 --> 00:22:48.150
  • I'm just trying to getyou not to take the fifth.
  • 00:22:48.250 --> 00:22:52.421
  • I'm just trying to get youto tell people your story.
  • 00:22:52.521 --> 00:22:56.091
  • And if you tell 'em your story,
  • 00:22:56.191 --> 00:22:57.926
  • you never knowwhat's gonna happen.
  • 00:22:58.026 --> 00:22:59.060
  • So I brought you --everyone at every campus,
  • 00:22:59.161 --> 00:23:06.301
  • I brought you a gift today toremind you to tell people
  • 00:23:06.401 --> 00:23:10.972
  • your story, and I'm gonna -- butit has a little twist to it,
  • 00:23:11.072 --> 00:23:14.309
  • so those of you that are readyto pass 'em out, every campus,
  • 00:23:14.409 --> 00:23:17.512
  • start passing 'em out right now,so we're gonna take --
  • 00:23:17.612 --> 00:23:21.082
  • it'll -- we're gonna do itas quickly as we can.
  • 00:23:21.183 --> 00:23:22.951
  • What you're gonna do isprobably get a little cup.
  • 00:23:23.051 --> 00:23:25.120
  • In that cup, you'll get itat the end of the aisle
  • 00:23:25.220 --> 00:23:26.721
  • if you're on the end-aisle,
  • 00:23:26.822 --> 00:23:27.823
  • is a lead fishing weight,alright?
  • 00:23:27.923 --> 00:23:31.059
  • So I want you to take outone lead fishing weight,
  • 00:23:31.159 --> 00:23:33.929
  • one for you, alright?
  • 00:23:34.029 --> 00:23:35.564
  • And then, pass it downto the next person.
  • 00:23:35.664 --> 00:23:39.067
  • Alright.
  • 00:23:39.167 --> 00:23:40.335
  • So probably everyone's gottentheir lead fishing weight.
  • 00:23:40.435 --> 00:23:42.838
  • If you haven't gotten it,it'll still come around.
  • 00:23:42.938 --> 00:23:45.207
  • But I wanna tell you why I'mgiving this to you, okay?
  • 00:23:45.307 --> 00:23:48.844
  • Many of you are thinking, well,he preached a message
  • 00:23:48.944 --> 00:23:51.746
  • a few weeks ago about fishing.
  • 00:23:51.847 --> 00:23:53.348
  • This is to remind meto be a fisher of men.
  • 00:23:53.448 --> 00:23:57.352
  • That's not why I'm givingit to you, alright?
  • 00:23:57.452 --> 00:23:59.387
  • It is a lead fishingweight, alright?
  • 00:23:59.488 --> 00:24:01.923
  • The reason thatI gave this to you
  • 00:24:02.023 --> 00:24:03.925
  • is because many people have toldme that they don't witness
  • 00:24:04.025 --> 00:24:08.129
  • unless they feel led.
  • 00:24:08.230 --> 00:24:09.731
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:24:09.831 --> 00:24:17.138
  • So I want you to put this inyour pocket, or your purse,
  • 00:24:17.239 --> 00:24:22.477
  • and the next time you thinkabout witnessing to someone,
  • 00:24:22.577 --> 00:24:25.614
  • I want you to reach intoyour pocket, feel lead,
  • 00:24:25.714 --> 00:24:28.717
  • and then go ahead and witness.
  • 00:24:28.817 --> 00:24:30.285
  • [Laughter and Applause]
  • 00:24:30.385 --> 00:24:34.556
  • ROBERT: I'd lovefor you to get one of those
  • 00:24:35.590 --> 00:24:37.058
  • little lead fishing weights,
  • 00:24:37.158 --> 00:24:39.160
  • put it in yourpocket or your purse.
  • 00:24:39.261 --> 00:24:41.429
  • I know it's a play on words,but every time you
  • 00:24:41.530 --> 00:24:44.799
  • think about whetheryou should witness or not,
  • 00:24:44.900 --> 00:24:47.636
  • just reach in your pocketor your purse, feel lead,
  • 00:24:47.736 --> 00:24:51.573
  • and go ahead and witness.
  • 00:24:51.673 --> 00:24:53.808
  • Here's the reason why.
  • 00:24:53.909 --> 00:24:55.710
  • We don't have tolead people to Jesus.
  • 00:24:55.810 --> 00:24:58.480
  • We just simply witness.
  • 00:24:58.580 --> 00:25:01.316
  • We tell people what we havepersonally seen and heard,
  • 00:25:01.416 --> 00:25:05.587
  • and the more we witness,the more people come to Christ.
  • 00:25:05.687 --> 00:25:10.559
  • Pray about it.
  • 00:25:10.659 --> 00:25:11.626

  • 00:25:11.726 --> 00:25:15.430
