  • 00:00:34.393 --> 00:00:47.739
  • PASTOR ROBERT: Okay, so we're inthe third week of a series
  • 00:00:47.840 --> 00:00:50.175
  • called "Created to Be."
  • 00:00:50.275 --> 00:00:53.178
  • So we're going to talkabout become a follower.
  • 00:00:53.278 --> 00:00:55.214
  • But remember westarted with believe.
  • 00:00:55.314 --> 00:00:57.549
  • Before we get to Mark 9,and I want to show you
  • 00:00:57.649 --> 00:00:59.284
  • a scripture that has believeand become in the scripture.
  • 00:00:59.384 --> 00:01:03.722
  • Because we talk aboutthat we believed
  • 00:01:03.822 --> 00:01:06.492
  • to receive eternal life,
  • 00:01:06.592 --> 00:01:08.393
  • and we continued to believeto receive abundant life.
  • 00:01:08.494 --> 00:01:11.630
  • I told you thatin the first week.
  • 00:01:11.730 --> 00:01:13.232
  • So let me show you just a coupleof scriptures here.
  • 00:01:13.332 --> 00:01:16.668
  • John 1:12 says,"But as many as received Him
  • 00:01:16.768 --> 00:01:21.073
  • to them He gave the rightto become children of God
  • 00:01:21.173 --> 00:01:27.646
  • to those who believein His name."
  • 00:01:27.746 --> 00:01:30.616
  • So when you believe,you become a child of God.
  • 00:01:30.716 --> 00:01:35.354
  • But I want you to notice thatwe want to continue to become.
  • 00:01:35.454 --> 00:01:39.658
  • We want to become a follower.
  • 00:01:39.758 --> 00:01:41.727
  • Here's a scripture that talksabout when we follow.
  • 00:01:41.827 --> 00:01:45.063
  • Mark 1:17, "Then Jesussaid to them, 'Follow me,
  • 00:01:45.164 --> 00:01:49.101
  • and I will make youbecome fishers of men.'"
  • 00:01:49.201 --> 00:01:54.540
  • You might not have evenever noticed the word become
  • 00:01:54.640 --> 00:01:56.975
  • was in that verse.
  • 00:01:57.075 --> 00:01:59.144
  • I will make youbecome something.
  • 00:01:59.244 --> 00:02:02.781
  • What I'm gonna make youbecome is a person
  • 00:02:02.881 --> 00:02:05.751
  • who's concerned aboutother people.
  • 00:02:05.851 --> 00:02:08.554
  • That's in other words,say fishers of men.
  • 00:02:08.654 --> 00:02:10.656
  • So, we're going to becomemore like that.
  • 00:02:10.756 --> 00:02:12.424
  • Last week, we talkedabout we're born rejected,
  • 00:02:12.524 --> 00:02:14.793
  • we're born again accepted.
  • 00:02:14.893 --> 00:02:16.528
  • Okay, so here's point one.
  • 00:02:16.628 --> 00:02:18.864
  • We are born self-centered.
  • 00:02:18.964 --> 00:02:23.302
  • We are born self-centered.
  • 00:02:23.402 --> 00:02:25.604
  • This is our old nature.This is our fallen nature.
  • 00:02:25.704 --> 00:02:28.440
  • So we're all basicallyself-centered, right? Alright.
  • 00:02:28.540 --> 00:02:31.910
  • So Mark 9, this turnsit into one
  • 00:02:32.010 --> 00:02:35.314
  • of the most humorousconversations
  • 00:02:35.414 --> 00:02:37.082
  • in the Bible, alright.
  • 00:02:37.182 --> 00:02:38.584
  • Mark 9:33, "Then hecame to Capernaum.
  • 00:02:38.684 --> 00:02:43.522
  • And when he was inthe house he asked them,
  • 00:02:43.622 --> 00:02:46.491
  • 'What was it,'" he's talkingto the 12 disciples,
  • 00:02:46.592 --> 00:02:49.094
  • "what was it you disputed,"not talked about,
  • 00:02:49.194 --> 00:02:53.131
  • "'you disputed amongstyourselves on the road?'
  • 00:02:53.232 --> 00:02:57.336
  • but they kept silentfor on the road,
  • 00:02:57.436 --> 00:03:00.906
  • they had disputedamong themselves
  • 00:03:01.006 --> 00:03:03.308
  • who would be the greatest."
  • 00:03:03.408 --> 00:03:06.845
  • This is the first Pastor'sconference recorded
  • 00:03:06.945 --> 00:03:08.914
  • in the Bible right here.
  • 00:03:09.014 --> 00:03:12.951
  • "And he sat down, calledthe twelve and said to them,
  • 00:03:13.051 --> 00:03:17.589
  • 'If anyone desires to be first,
  • 00:03:17.689 --> 00:03:20.459
  • he shall be last of alland servant of all.'"
  • 00:03:20.559 --> 00:03:23.161
  • So he knew what they weretalking about.
  • 00:03:23.262 --> 00:03:24.696
  • Okay. So, think about this.
  • 00:03:24.796 --> 00:03:26.231
  • I don't know if you'veever thought about.
  • 00:03:26.331 --> 00:03:27.799
  • There's so many things thathappen to me that are funny,
  • 00:03:27.899 --> 00:03:30.302
  • but we just read the Bibleand we don't think about it.
  • 00:03:30.402 --> 00:03:32.070
  • Real life, okay,so they are disputing
  • 00:03:32.170 --> 00:03:35.807
  • who's going to be the greatest.
  • 00:03:35.907 --> 00:03:37.309
  • And they get to wherethey're going, and Jesus says,
  • 00:03:37.409 --> 00:03:40.145
  • "Guys, gather up, I'm goingto ask you something.
  • 00:03:40.245 --> 00:03:42.914
  • What were y'all talkingabout on the road over here,
  • 00:03:43.015 --> 00:03:45.183
  • when we're on our way?
  • 00:03:45.284 --> 00:03:46.685
  • What were ya'lltalking about?"
  • 00:03:46.785 --> 00:03:49.054
  • Now what do youthink they did?
  • 00:03:49.154 --> 00:03:51.857
  • "Uh, you know, I can'teven remember, Lord.
  • 00:03:51.957 --> 00:03:57.796
  • John said we werehaving nice weather.
  • 00:03:57.896 --> 00:04:00.032
  • I remember that.
  • 00:04:00.132 --> 00:04:01.600
  • John, didn't you saysomething about the weather?""Yeah, yeah, yeah."
  • 00:04:01.700 --> 00:04:03.935
  • "And Mark said it'sbeen hot lately, yeah.
  • 00:04:04.036 --> 00:04:06.738
  • We were just talkingabout the weather."
  • 00:04:06.838 --> 00:04:09.207
  • And Jesus said, "Okay, welllet me tell you something
  • 00:04:09.308 --> 00:04:11.376
  • about the weather.
  • 00:04:11.476 --> 00:04:14.112
  • Whoever among you desires to begreat needs to be a servant."
  • 00:04:14.212 --> 00:04:19.384
  • So he just nailsthem right here.
  • 00:04:19.484 --> 00:04:21.386
  • So that's us.That's the way we grow.
  • 00:04:21.486 --> 00:04:23.388
  • Think about this.
  • 00:04:23.488 --> 00:04:24.890
  • It's called, it would be called,
  • 00:04:24.990 --> 00:04:26.758
  • in my word for this is me ism.
  • 00:04:26.858 --> 00:04:31.163
  • We're eating up with it.Me ism.
  • 00:04:31.263 --> 00:04:33.699
  • In marriage counseling,you hear me ism a lot.
  • 00:04:33.799 --> 00:04:37.903
  • He doesn't listen to me.
  • 00:04:38.003 --> 00:04:42.607
  • I need to get someonewho will listen to me.
  • 00:04:42.708 --> 00:04:49.548
  • Now, she doesn't thinkshe's saying me ism.
  • 00:04:49.648 --> 00:04:54.386
  • But I'm hearing me ism.
  • 00:04:54.486 --> 00:04:55.987
  • And then he'll saythe same thing.
  • 00:04:56.088 --> 00:04:57.556
  • She doesn't meet my needs.
  • 00:04:57.656 --> 00:05:01.326
  • I need to meet someone whowill give me what I want
  • 00:05:01.426 --> 00:05:07.399
  • and meet my needs.
  • 00:05:07.499 --> 00:05:09.768
  • It's me ism.
  • 00:05:09.868 --> 00:05:11.670
  • It's in the church me ism.
  • 00:05:11.770 --> 00:05:15.273
  • I don't like the music.
  • 00:05:15.374 --> 00:05:17.809
  • It's not my style.
  • 00:05:17.909 --> 00:05:22.748
  • Well who said the musicneeds to be your style?
  • 00:05:22.848 --> 00:05:26.651
  • And who said your styleis the best style?
  • 00:05:26.752 --> 00:05:30.722
  • I was having dinner with afamily about ten years ago
  • 00:05:30.822 --> 00:05:33.392
  • in the church, and we'retalking about the church.
  • 00:05:33.492 --> 00:05:38.230
  • And they were talkingabout we like
  • 00:05:38.330 --> 00:05:40.766
  • everything about the church.
  • 00:05:40.866 --> 00:05:42.267
  • We like everythingabout the church.
  • 00:05:42.367 --> 00:05:44.736
  • And the father said, I said,"Well, how are you fitting
  • 00:05:44.836 --> 00:05:50.075
  • in the church?"He said, "I like it."
  • 00:05:50.175 --> 00:05:53.612
  • And I noticed something.
  • 00:05:53.712 --> 00:05:55.947
  • And I said, "But youdon't like everything?"
  • 00:05:56.047 --> 00:05:59.317
  • And the kids, he had twoteenagers, a boy and a girl,
  • 00:05:59.418 --> 00:06:02.421
  • and they went, "hmm."[Laughter]
  • 00:06:02.521 --> 00:06:05.791
  • And they had agreed not totalk about this with me.
  • 00:06:05.891 --> 00:06:11.263
  • So I said, the kid, I said,
  • 00:06:11.363 --> 00:06:13.064
  • "Oh, let's talk aboutthis a minute."
  • 00:06:13.165 --> 00:06:15.634
  • And the kids, I said,"You kids tell me."
  • 00:06:15.734 --> 00:06:17.936
  • They said, "Well there's onething about the church
  • 00:06:18.036 --> 00:06:19.538
  • that dad doesn't like."
  • 00:06:19.638 --> 00:06:21.940
  • And so I said, "I cantell you what it is."
  • 00:06:22.040 --> 00:06:25.544
  • Just like that.And it just popped in my head.
  • 00:06:25.644 --> 00:06:27.078
  • I said, "I can tellyou what it is."
  • 00:06:27.179 --> 00:06:28.780
  • So he said, "Really?"
  • 00:06:28.880 --> 00:06:30.282
  • He said, "Okay, what's theone thing about the church
  • 00:06:30.382 --> 00:06:33.518
  • that I don't like?"I said, "The first song."
  • 00:06:33.618 --> 00:06:37.556
  • And you know, young teenagers,
  • 00:06:37.656 --> 00:06:39.658
  • "Oh he got you dad, he got you."
  • 00:06:39.758 --> 00:06:44.896
  • He said, "How doyou know that?"
  • 00:06:44.996 --> 00:06:46.631
  • I said, "BecauseI don't like it."
  • 00:06:46.731 --> 00:06:50.402
  • He said, "You don't like it?"I said, "No."
  • 00:06:50.502 --> 00:06:52.504
  • I said, "And we'reabout the same age."
  • 00:06:52.604 --> 00:06:55.707
  • So I said, "But I'm goingto tell you something
  • 00:06:55.807 --> 00:06:57.609
  • and it will foreverchange your view.
  • 00:06:57.709 --> 00:07:00.612
  • I said, "I want to help youon the first song, okay?"
  • 00:07:00.712 --> 00:07:04.349
  • And I turn to the twoteenagers, and I said,
  • 00:07:04.449 --> 00:07:08.119
  • "Do y'all like the first song?"
  • 00:07:08.220 --> 00:07:10.021
  • And they said, "Welove the first song."
  • 00:07:10.121 --> 00:07:13.291
  • And I turned to the fatherand said, "That's why
  • 00:07:13.391 --> 00:07:15.327
  • we do the first song.
  • 00:07:15.427 --> 00:07:18.630
  • Because there's a wholebunch of churches
  • 00:07:18.730 --> 00:07:21.333
  • that have never changedtheir style of music.
  • 00:07:21.433 --> 00:07:25.804
  • And nothing wrong,but if I keep the music
  • 00:07:25.904 --> 00:07:28.773
  • like it was 30 years ago,
  • 00:07:28.874 --> 00:07:31.276
  • we're going to losethe next generation.
  • 00:07:31.376 --> 00:07:34.679
  • So there's a reason,"I said, I told this guy,
  • 00:07:34.779 --> 00:07:36.715
  • "There's a reason we doeverything we do in a service.
  • 00:07:36.815 --> 00:07:40.151
  • Everything."
  • 00:07:40.252 --> 00:07:41.887
  • Did you know aboutthree months later,
  • 00:07:41.987 --> 00:07:43.421
  • he caught me in the hallway,he said, "You know,
  • 00:07:43.522 --> 00:07:44.956
  • I like that first song,you know."
  • 00:07:45.056 --> 00:07:46.625
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:07:46.725 --> 00:07:49.060
  • But that's the way we are.
  • 00:07:49.160 --> 00:07:50.962
  • I don't like this.I don't like this.
  • 00:07:51.062 --> 00:07:53.899
  • It's me ism.Okay.
  • 00:07:53.999 --> 00:07:55.400
  • Let me take, I wanna takeme ism a little father.
  • 00:07:55.500 --> 00:07:57.068
  • We were in Mark 9,look at Mark 10.
  • 00:07:57.168 --> 00:07:59.738
  • And we ended with verse 35,maybe you can remember this,
  • 00:07:59.838 --> 00:08:03.074
  • I don't know if you'regood with numbers.
  • 00:08:03.174 --> 00:08:04.576
  • But Mark 10:35.
  • 00:08:04.676 --> 00:08:06.444
  • Now watch this, because it'sfunnier thank you think.
  • 00:08:06.545 --> 00:08:09.748
  • Think about what these twodisciples said to Jesus,
  • 00:08:09.848 --> 00:08:13.318
  • alright, watch it carefully.
  • 00:08:13.418 --> 00:08:15.153
  • Mark 10:35, "Then Jamesand John the sons of Zebedee
  • 00:08:15.253 --> 00:08:19.391
  • came to him saying,"watch what they said,
  • 00:08:19.491 --> 00:08:21.393
  • "Teacher, we want you to dofor us whatever we ask."
  • 00:08:21.493 --> 00:08:30.001
  • Who wouldn't?
  • 00:08:30.101 --> 00:08:32.971
  • Sovereign Lord of the Universe,Ruler of All,
  • 00:08:33.071 --> 00:08:40.211
  • I want you to be my servant.

  • I want you to dowhatever I ask.
  • 00:08:43.048 --> 00:08:44.749
  • By the way, this isa brand of Christianity
  • 00:08:44.849 --> 00:08:46.451
  • that's preached today.
  • 00:08:46.551 --> 00:08:49.721
  • That whatever you ask, He'll do.You've got to take that one.
  • 00:08:49.821 --> 00:08:53.191
  • There is a verse that says that,
  • 00:08:53.291 --> 00:08:55.260
  • but you got to take itin context of the Bible.
  • 00:08:55.360 --> 00:08:57.128
  • And it says when we prayaccording to His will.
  • 00:08:57.228 --> 00:09:01.733
  • And another verse says, "Youhave not because you ask not.
  • 00:09:01.833 --> 00:09:05.503
  • And when you do ask,you ask for yourself.
  • 00:09:05.604 --> 00:09:08.306
  • You ask selfishly."
  • 00:09:08.406 --> 00:09:10.542
  • We want you to do forus whatever we ask.
  • 00:09:10.642 --> 00:09:14.946
  • What an incredible statement.
  • 00:09:15.046 --> 00:09:17.048
  • It is amazing that Jesus didn'tjust pft and just flick people.
  • 00:09:17.148 --> 00:09:20.852
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:09:20.952 --> 00:09:24.623
  • He's so sweet.Look at verse 36.
  • 00:09:24.723 --> 00:09:27.592
  • "And he said to them, 'Whatdo you want me to do for you?'
  • 00:09:27.692 --> 00:09:33.798
  • They said to him, 'Grant usthat we may sit one
  • 00:09:33.898 --> 00:09:36.601
  • on your right hand and the otheron your left in your glory.'"
  • 00:09:36.701 --> 00:09:41.973
  • Lord, we understandthat you're number one.
  • 00:09:42.073 --> 00:09:44.743
  • We understand that, becauseyou're walking on the water,
  • 00:09:44.843 --> 00:09:47.012
  • and raising the dead,and things we can't do.
  • 00:09:47.112 --> 00:09:49.614
  • So, okay, so we got it.You're number one.
  • 00:09:49.714 --> 00:09:54.085
  • But we want tobe number two.
  • 00:09:54.185 --> 00:09:56.621
  • We want to be next to you.
  • 00:09:56.721 --> 00:09:58.123
  • we want to be right underyou and over everybody else.
  • 00:09:58.223 --> 00:10:05.997
  • Did you know that, of course,he goes into sacrifice,
  • 00:10:06.097 --> 00:10:10.402
  • and he goes into, "Can you drinkthe cup I'm going to drink?
  • 00:10:10.502 --> 00:10:12.737
  • Can you do that?"
  • 00:10:12.837 --> 00:10:14.606
  • And he kind of, okay,but do you know that
  • 00:10:14.706 --> 00:10:18.610
  • then they sent their motherto ask the same question?
  • 00:10:18.710 --> 00:10:22.747
  • They sent their mom.
  • 00:10:22.847 --> 00:10:25.483
  • The sons of thunder.
  • 00:10:25.583 --> 00:10:27.686
  • "Mommy, will you gotalk to Jesus for us?"
  • 00:10:27.786 --> 00:10:32.691
  • Okay. Here's the problem.
  • 00:10:32.791 --> 00:10:34.693
  • "Will you grant that oneof us can sit at your right,
  • 00:10:34.793 --> 00:10:37.996
  • and one on your left?"
  • 00:10:38.096 --> 00:10:39.731
  • Let me just remind you ofsomething Jesus said
  • 00:10:39.831 --> 00:10:41.800
  • in Matthew 25.
  • 00:10:41.900 --> 00:10:43.368
  • He said, "When you comeinto your kingdom,
  • 00:10:43.468 --> 00:10:44.936
  • where one can sit on your rightand one," he said,
  • 00:10:45.036 --> 00:10:46.838
  • "When the Son of Mancomes into his kingdom,"
  • 00:10:46.938 --> 00:10:49.674
  • this is what Jesus said,
  • 00:10:49.774 --> 00:10:51.409
  • "he's going to put sheep on hisright and goats on his left.
  • 00:10:51.509 --> 00:11:00.285
  • He's going to sayto those on his right,
  • 00:11:00.385 --> 00:11:02.487
  • "Come, enter intothe everlasting kingdom
  • 00:11:02.587 --> 00:11:05.323
  • prepared by my Father."
  • 00:11:05.423 --> 00:11:07.826
  • He's going to sayto those on his left,
  • 00:11:07.926 --> 00:11:11.429
  • "Depart from meinto everlasting fire."
  • 00:11:11.529 --> 00:11:20.138
  • And then this womancomes and says,
  • 00:11:20.238 --> 00:11:21.806
  • "Lord, will you grantwhen you come into your kingdom
  • 00:11:21.906 --> 00:11:26.611
  • that one of my sonscan sit on your right,"
  • 00:11:26.711 --> 00:11:30.682
  • are y'all following me,"and one can sit on your left?"
  • 00:11:30.782 --> 00:11:35.854
  • Would you like to seewhat he told her?
  • 00:11:35.954 --> 00:11:37.655
  • Look at this, Matthew 20:22:"Jesus answered and said,
  • 00:11:37.756 --> 00:11:40.959
  • 'You do not know what you ask.'"You don't even understand.
  • 00:11:41.059 --> 00:11:48.466
  • You just asked me for oneof your sons to go to hell.
  • 00:11:48.566 --> 00:11:52.337
  • That's what she just asked.
  • 00:11:52.437 --> 00:11:54.572
  • I wonder how manytimes we're praying
  • 00:11:54.672 --> 00:11:58.209
  • and it's me ism that'saffecting our prayers,
  • 00:11:58.309 --> 00:12:01.613
  • and Jesus is thinking,"You do not know what you ask."
  • 00:12:01.713 --> 00:12:07.185
  • You don't know.
  • 00:12:07.285 --> 00:12:10.088
  • "Lord, would you justlet me rule?"
  • 00:12:10.188 --> 00:12:12.390
  • That's what we ask.
  • 00:12:12.490 --> 00:12:13.892
  • "Would you just let me rule onetime, Lord, before I die?
  • 00:12:13.992 --> 00:12:16.961
  • Would you just letme be in charge?
  • 00:12:17.061 --> 00:12:18.663
  • Would you just let me ruleover the jerks in my office,
  • 00:12:18.763 --> 00:12:21.065
  • just one time Lord, please?
  • 00:12:21.166 --> 00:12:23.935
  • Would you just letme be in charge?
  • 00:12:24.035 --> 00:12:25.470
  • Will you let mebe the boss?"
  • 00:12:25.570 --> 00:12:27.672
  • It's me ism.
  • 00:12:27.772 --> 00:12:29.340
  • My daughter Lane when shewas three years old,
  • 00:12:29.440 --> 00:12:32.277
  • I used to travela lot and speak.
  • 00:12:32.377 --> 00:12:34.112
  • And so I'm traveling andspeaking, and Debbie told her,
  • 00:12:34.212 --> 00:12:36.948
  • I'm out of town, so Debbietold her to do something.
  • 00:12:37.048 --> 00:12:39.184
  • She was three years old.She said, "I don't have to."
  • 00:12:39.284 --> 00:12:43.354
  • And Debbie said,"Why don't you have to?"
  • 00:12:43.454 --> 00:12:46.090
  • She said, "Becauseyou're not the boss."
  • 00:12:46.191 --> 00:12:49.327
  • She said, "Dad's the boss,and when dad's out of town,
  • 00:12:49.427 --> 00:12:53.364
  • I'm the boss."
  • 00:12:53.464 --> 00:12:55.667
  • So I said to Debbie,"What did you do?"
  • 00:12:58.670 --> 00:13:01.673
  • She said, "I took her toanother room and explained
  • 00:13:01.773 --> 00:13:03.842
  • the way of the Lordmore perfectly to her."
  • 00:13:03.942 --> 00:13:08.613
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:13:08.713 --> 00:13:10.315
  • Okay, so we're bornself-centered.
  • 00:13:10.415 --> 00:13:13.618
  • Here's number two.
  • 00:13:13.718 --> 00:13:15.286
  • We are born againChrist-centered.
  • 00:13:15.386 --> 00:13:20.024
  • You say, you meanjust like that?
  • 00:13:20.124 --> 00:13:21.526
  • Yeah now, I'm not saying we're,
  • 00:13:21.626 --> 00:13:23.027
  • remember there's a process.But yeah, just like that.
  • 00:13:23.127 --> 00:13:24.963
  • You're born rejected.You're born again accepted.
  • 00:13:25.063 --> 00:13:26.731
  • That was last week.You're born self-centered.
  • 00:13:26.831 --> 00:13:28.233
  • You're born againChrist-centered.
  • 00:13:28.333 --> 00:13:29.734
  • You say, "Ah,I don't know about that."
  • 00:13:29.834 --> 00:13:31.236
  • Listen, you can't get saved
  • 00:13:31.336 --> 00:13:32.971
  • if you don't takeyou off the throne
  • 00:13:33.071 --> 00:13:34.505
  • and put Christ on the throne.That's how you get saved.
  • 00:13:34.606 --> 00:13:38.409
  • Now you don't, you're notperfect in your performance,
  • 00:13:38.509 --> 00:13:41.212
  • and you never will be,
  • 00:13:41.312 --> 00:13:43.114
  • but you got to putChrist on the throne.
  • 00:13:43.214 --> 00:13:45.116
  • So, remember we justread Mark 10:35,
  • 00:13:45.216 --> 00:13:51.556
  • where the sonsof Zebedee and 36-37,
  • 00:13:51.656 --> 00:13:54.259
  • "We want you to dofor us whatever we ask."
  • 00:13:54.359 --> 00:13:55.927
  • One on the right,one on the left.
  • 00:13:56.027 --> 00:13:57.428
  • Alright. Look down.
  • 00:13:57.528 --> 00:13:58.930
  • Mark 10, stay at Mark 10,look at verse 41.
  • 00:13:59.030 --> 00:14:01.833
  • "And when the ten heard it,
  • 00:14:01.933 --> 00:14:04.869
  • they began to begreatly displeased,"
  • 00:14:04.969 --> 00:14:09.540
  • I love the way the Biblerephrases some things,
  • 00:14:09.641 --> 00:14:12.310
  • "greatly displeasedwith James and John."
  • 00:14:12.410 --> 00:14:17.048
  • You know why they were greatlydispleased, weren't you?
  • 00:14:17.148 --> 00:14:19.250
  • Cause they didn'tthink of it first.
  • 00:14:19.350 --> 00:14:22.487
  • "But Jesus called themto himself and said to them,
  • 00:14:22.587 --> 00:14:25.456
  • 'You know that thosewho are considered rulers
  • 00:14:25.556 --> 00:14:28.393
  • over the Gentileslord it over them,
  • 00:14:28.493 --> 00:14:31.095
  • and their great ones exercisedauthority over them.
  • 00:14:31.195 --> 00:14:34.632
  • Yet it shall notbe so among you.
  • 00:14:34.732 --> 00:14:39.170
  • But whoever desiresto become great among you,
  • 00:14:39.270 --> 00:14:43.608
  • shall be your servant,and whoever of you desires
  • 00:14:43.708 --> 00:14:46.444
  • to be first shall beslave of all.
  • 00:14:46.544 --> 00:14:50.114
  • For even the Son of Man did notcome to be served but to serve,
  • 00:14:50.214 --> 00:14:55.019
  • and to give his lifea ransom for many.'"
  • 00:14:55.119 --> 00:15:01.159
  • It's all through the gospels.
  • 00:15:01.259 --> 00:15:04.128
  • The disciples thoughtthat he was coming
  • 00:15:04.228 --> 00:15:06.397
  • to set up a newkingdom on earth.
  • 00:15:06.497 --> 00:15:10.935
  • And he was coming to set upa new kingdom in their hearts,
  • 00:15:11.035 --> 00:15:15.740
  • and then on earth.He was coming to set up a kin --
  • 00:15:15.840 --> 00:15:18.576
  • They thought He wasgoing to help them
  • 00:15:18.676 --> 00:15:20.078
  • overthrow the Roman government,
  • 00:15:20.178 --> 00:15:22.680
  • and they were goingto then be in power.
  • 00:15:22.780 --> 00:15:26.017
  • And they were going to havepeople fanning them
  • 00:15:26.117 --> 00:15:28.820
  • and feeding themgrapes, you know.
  • 00:15:28.920 --> 00:15:33.057
  • And even when Jesusstarted saying to them,
  • 00:15:33.157 --> 00:15:35.326
  • "No, it's not the wayit's going to be.
  • 00:15:35.426 --> 00:15:37.028
  • The Son of Man's going to bedelivered to the chief priests,
  • 00:15:37.128 --> 00:15:39.364
  • and scribes, and going to betortured and crucified,
  • 00:15:39.464 --> 00:15:42.600
  • and rise againon the third day."
  • 00:15:42.700 --> 00:15:44.736
  • You remember what they did?"Not so, Lord.
  • 00:15:44.836 --> 00:15:48.206
  • No, that's notgoing to happen.
  • 00:15:48.306 --> 00:15:49.707
  • That's not the waywe planned this thing.
  • 00:15:49.807 --> 00:15:52.543
  • We, you're going to take over,
  • 00:15:52.643 --> 00:15:54.345
  • and we're going to get to rulefinally, right under you.
  • 00:15:54.445 --> 00:15:57.782
  • That's the old nature.
  • 00:15:57.882 --> 00:16:01.252
  • I wrote this statement,and I decided to put it
  • 00:16:01.352 --> 00:16:03.121
  • where you could see it.So look at this.
  • 00:16:03.221 --> 00:16:05.823
  • "A growing, maturingChristian will become
  • 00:16:05.923 --> 00:16:11.062
  • less and less self-centered andmore and more Christ-centered."
  • 00:16:11.162 --> 00:16:17.602
  • Do you agree with that?
  • 00:16:17.702 --> 00:16:19.103
  • "A growing, maturing Christianwill become less and less
  • 00:16:19.203 --> 00:16:22.607
  • self-centered and moreand more Christ-centered."
  • 00:16:22.707 --> 00:16:26.577
  • See it's a processof becoming a follower.
  • 00:16:26.677 --> 00:16:31.315
  • Yes, you're following,but becoming a follower.
  • 00:16:31.416 --> 00:16:34.552
  • Continuing to follow Him.
  • 00:16:34.652 --> 00:16:36.454
  • Becoming a follower of His.
  • 00:16:36.554 --> 00:16:38.890
  • I want you to noticehow Paul understood this.
  • 00:16:38.990 --> 00:16:41.526
  • And we talk aboutbeing and doing.
  • 00:16:41.626 --> 00:16:44.028
  • Watch this verse.
  • 00:16:44.128 --> 00:16:45.530
  • You may have never putit in these terms.
  • 00:16:45.630 --> 00:16:47.398
  • Romans 1:1, "Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ,
  • 00:16:47.498 --> 00:16:53.304
  • called to be an apostle."Here's what he does.
  • 00:16:53.404 --> 00:16:58.409
  • He says, "You wantto know what I am?
  • 00:16:58.509 --> 00:17:01.612
  • I'm a bond servant."
  • 00:17:01.712 --> 00:17:03.714
  • That's a slave that's chosento remain a slave
  • 00:17:03.815 --> 00:17:05.883
  • after the seven year period."I'm a bond servant.
  • 00:17:05.983 --> 00:17:09.053
  • I'm a slave that's chosento remain a slave to Jesus.
  • 00:17:09.153 --> 00:17:14.759
  • But I'm calledto be an apostle.
  • 00:17:14.859 --> 00:17:17.061
  • So, see, I'm an apostle,I have that position,
  • 00:17:17.161 --> 00:17:20.465
  • but my function is serving."
  • 00:17:20.565 --> 00:17:22.500
  • That's the way it is, no matterwhat your calling is,
  • 00:17:22.600 --> 00:17:25.103
  • no matter what your gifts are.
  • 00:17:25.203 --> 00:17:27.238
  • That's what you do.
  • 00:17:27.338 --> 00:17:30.174
  • But what you are isa servant of Jesus.
  • 00:17:30.274 --> 00:17:33.711
  • We have so manyservants around here.
  • 00:17:33.811 --> 00:17:36.714
  • We have deacons.
  • 00:17:36.814 --> 00:17:38.282
  • We have people in the worshipteam, we have pastors,
  • 00:17:38.382 --> 00:17:41.085
  • we have children's ministers,we have parking lot attendants.
  • 00:17:41.185 --> 00:17:43.688
  • We have all thesewonderful people.
  • 00:17:43.788 --> 00:17:46.424
  • But they all do the same thing.They all serve.
  • 00:17:46.524 --> 00:17:49.427
  • They all serve.I serve.
  • 00:17:49.527 --> 00:17:51.662
  • I serve you.That's what I'm supposed to do.
  • 00:17:51.762 --> 00:17:54.799
  • So, we're born self-centered.
  • 00:17:54.899 --> 00:17:56.868
  • We're born againChrist-centered.
  • 00:17:56.968 --> 00:17:59.303
  • Here's point number three.
  • 00:17:59.403 --> 00:18:01.506
  • We become like Jesus.
  • 00:18:01.606 --> 00:18:05.309
  • We become like Jesus.
  • 00:18:05.409 --> 00:18:08.579
  • John 3:30, John the Baptisthere says, "He,"
  • 00:18:08.679 --> 00:18:12.817
  • speaking of Jesus,
  • 00:18:12.917 --> 00:18:14.685
  • "must become greaterand greater;
  • 00:18:14.785 --> 00:18:18.456
  • and I must becomeless and less."
  • 00:18:18.556 --> 00:18:21.025
  • Now, let me explainthat a little bit.
  • 00:18:21.125 --> 00:18:22.860
  • Well, God can't become greater,
  • 00:18:22.960 --> 00:18:24.362
  • 'cause He's alreadythe greatest.
  • 00:18:24.462 --> 00:18:25.930
  • What he meant is,He must become greater
  • 00:18:26.030 --> 00:18:28.199
  • and greater in me.
  • 00:18:28.299 --> 00:18:31.002
  • And I must become less and less,
  • 00:18:31.102 --> 00:18:33.838
  • so that people seeJesus and not me.
  • 00:18:33.938 --> 00:18:36.607
  • That's what he's saying.
  • 00:18:36.707 --> 00:18:39.110
  • Now, John 13, he's washingthe disciple's feet.
  • 00:18:39.210 --> 00:18:42.046
  • He's just washed their feet,watch him, he says in verse 12,
  • 00:18:42.146 --> 00:18:44.749
  • "So when he had washedtheir feet, taken his garments,
  • 00:18:44.849 --> 00:18:47.018
  • and sat down again,he said to them,
  • 00:18:47.118 --> 00:18:49.053
  • 'Do you know whatI've done to you?
  • 00:18:49.153 --> 00:18:51.522
  • You call me Teacher and Lord,and you say well, so I am.
  • 00:18:51.622 --> 00:18:57.061
  • If I then, your Lord and Teacherhave washed your feet,"
  • 00:18:57.161 --> 00:19:01.799
  • now I'm going to change somewords here in a minute,
  • 00:19:01.899 --> 00:19:03.968
  • just so you'll catch it, 'Youalso ought to wash my feet.'"
  • 00:19:04.068 --> 00:19:12.076
  • That's not what he said.
  • 00:19:12.176 --> 00:19:14.412
  • He said, "you ought to washeach other's feet."
  • 00:19:14.512 --> 00:19:17.215
  • See, he said,if I washed your feet,
  • 00:19:17.315 --> 00:19:20.618
  • he could have said,you ought to wash my feet.
  • 00:19:20.718 --> 00:19:22.653
  • If I serve you,you ought to serve me.
  • 00:19:22.753 --> 00:19:24.155
  • He didn't.
  • 00:19:24.255 --> 00:19:25.656
  • He said, if I serve you,you ought to serve one another.
  • 00:19:25.756 --> 00:19:29.026
  • Here's the reasonI'm saying this.
  • 00:19:29.126 --> 00:19:30.795
  • We want to become like Jesus.
  • 00:19:30.895 --> 00:19:32.763
  • We're born self-centered,
  • 00:19:32.863 --> 00:19:34.332
  • we're born againChrist-centered.
  • 00:19:34.432 --> 00:19:35.900
  • Let me say it another waywhen I say become like Jesus.
  • 00:19:36.000 --> 00:19:37.902
  • We need to becomeothers-centered.
  • 00:19:38.002 --> 00:19:42.807
  • That's becoming like Jesus.
  • 00:19:42.907 --> 00:19:45.343
  • See, people say this,they say, "Well I serve God."
  • 00:19:45.443 --> 00:19:49.680
  • Okay. That meansyou serve others.
  • 00:19:49.780 --> 00:19:53.017
  • That's what Jesus said.
  • 00:19:53.117 --> 00:19:55.987
  • You saw it.
  • 00:19:56.087 --> 00:19:57.989
  • Listen, and hewashed their feet.
  • 00:19:58.089 --> 00:19:59.991
  • We don't catch thatin our culture's society.
  • 00:20:00.091 --> 00:20:03.094
  • No paved roads at that time.
  • 00:20:03.194 --> 00:20:04.829
  • It'd be like if our parking lotat our campuses weren't paved,
  • 00:20:04.929 --> 00:20:09.233
  • and when it didn't rain,it would be real dusty
  • 00:20:09.333 --> 00:20:11.168
  • and real dirty.
  • 00:20:11.269 --> 00:20:13.070
  • You probably walked acrossmaybe a construction site
  • 00:20:13.170 --> 00:20:15.273
  • like that before.
  • 00:20:15.373 --> 00:20:16.774
  • You get dirt all overyour shoes and dust all over.
  • 00:20:16.874 --> 00:20:18.409
  • Or, if it had rained,it would be real muddy.
  • 00:20:18.509 --> 00:20:21.445
  • So you'd get mudall over your shoes.
  • 00:20:21.545 --> 00:20:23.848
  • So, in Israel,when they came in a room,
  • 00:20:23.948 --> 00:20:26.284
  • they had a little foyerwhere you took your shoes off.
  • 00:20:26.384 --> 00:20:29.587
  • And when you tookyour shoes off,
  • 00:20:29.687 --> 00:20:31.088
  • you stood thereand greeted the guest,
  • 00:20:31.188 --> 00:20:34.258
  • but I mean, the host, but beforeyou went into the house,
  • 00:20:34.358 --> 00:20:35.926
  • a lowly servant,
  • 00:20:36.027 --> 00:20:38.062
  • it was the lowest jobin the house for servants
  • 00:20:38.162 --> 00:20:42.099
  • would come and wash your feet.And then you'd go in.
  • 00:20:42.199 --> 00:20:45.469
  • And then while you were meetingwith your host,
  • 00:20:45.569 --> 00:20:47.638
  • or eating dinner or something,
  • 00:20:47.738 --> 00:20:49.507
  • then the servantwould clean your shoes.
  • 00:20:49.607 --> 00:20:52.276
  • That's the worst jobthe servant could have.
  • 00:20:52.376 --> 00:20:54.011
  • It is the lowest jobin Jewish culture.
  • 00:20:54.111 --> 00:20:57.315
  • So they go to eat,and Jesus said,
  • 00:20:57.415 --> 00:20:58.949
  • "I want it to just be you 12."
  • 00:20:59.050 --> 00:21:02.153
  • And Leonardo de Vinci, 'causehe's going to do a painting.
  • 00:21:02.253 --> 00:21:04.755
  • No I'm kidding.[Laughter]
  • 00:21:04.855 --> 00:21:07.391
  • "So just you 12, alright,and me, that's it."
  • 00:21:07.491 --> 00:21:12.096
  • So they get in there,and the foot washer's
  • 00:21:12.196 --> 00:21:13.931
  • not even allowedto enter the room.
  • 00:21:14.031 --> 00:21:15.433
  • No one else is in the room.
  • 00:21:15.533 --> 00:21:17.301
  • Here's somethingI want you to notice.
  • 00:21:17.401 --> 00:21:18.903
  • Not one of the disciples thoughtabout washing Jesus' feet.
  • 00:21:19.003 --> 00:21:26.944
  • So he gets up before the meal,
  • 00:21:27.044 --> 00:21:30.281
  • before he doescommunion with them,
  • 00:21:30.381 --> 00:21:32.516
  • or what we would call communion,
  • 00:21:32.616 --> 00:21:35.086
  • before that and goes aroundand washes their feet.
  • 00:21:35.186 --> 00:21:39.557
  • And he says to them,"I washed your feet.
  • 00:21:39.657 --> 00:21:45.896
  • You know what this means?
  • 00:21:45.996 --> 00:21:47.531
  • Do you know what this means?
  • 00:21:47.631 --> 00:21:49.533
  • Not that youshould serve me.
  • 00:21:49.633 --> 00:21:52.103
  • You should wash oneanother's feet."
  • 00:21:52.203 --> 00:21:54.672
  • Isn't that phenomenal?
  • 00:21:54.772 --> 00:21:56.173
  • See, that's why I could havesaid we become others-centered,
  • 00:21:56.273 --> 00:21:58.809
  • and I agree with that.
  • 00:21:58.909 --> 00:22:00.611
  • But we need to becomelike Jesus.
  • 00:22:00.711 --> 00:22:02.747
  • We want to be like Jesus.
  • 00:22:02.847 --> 00:22:04.315
  • That's what we're following.Jesus.
  • 00:22:04.415 --> 00:22:08.319
  • I heard a pastorshare this one time.
  • 00:22:08.419 --> 00:22:13.023
  • He shared that, he said his sonwas, you know, a young boy.
  • 00:22:13.124 --> 00:22:16.627
  • I don't know, age five, six,seven, eight years old,
  • 00:22:16.727 --> 00:22:18.662
  • but he didn't say the age.
  • 00:22:18.763 --> 00:22:20.297
  • But they came home from church,
  • 00:22:20.398 --> 00:22:22.199
  • and they were gettingready to eat.
  • 00:22:22.299 --> 00:22:24.068
  • And the son came up to him,and looked very serious.
  • 00:22:24.168 --> 00:22:28.506
  • And he said, "Son,are you okay?"
  • 00:22:28.606 --> 00:22:31.742
  • He said, "I want to askyou something, daddy."
  • 00:22:31.842 --> 00:22:34.812
  • He said, "Okay."
  • 00:22:34.912 --> 00:22:37.314
  • The little boy said,"Daddy, are you Jesus?"
  • 00:22:37.415 --> 00:22:45.389
  • He said, "Why wouldyou ask me that?
  • 00:22:45.489 --> 00:22:47.091
  • Why are you asking me?"
  • 00:22:47.191 --> 00:22:48.959
  • He said, "Well, in class today,they told us that Jesus
  • 00:22:49.059 --> 00:22:54.098
  • always loves us, and Jesusalways takes care of us.
  • 00:22:54.198 --> 00:23:03.274
  • So I just got tothinking about you.
  • 00:23:03.374 --> 00:23:07.278
  • And I was just wonderingare you Jesus?"
  • 00:23:07.378 --> 00:23:11.048
  • So he took his son upin his lap, and he said,
  • 00:23:11.148 --> 00:23:12.817
  • "Son, I'm not Jesus.
  • 00:23:12.917 --> 00:23:14.552
  • I want to be like Jesus,but I'm not Jesus."
  • 00:23:14.652 --> 00:23:17.688
  • And then he said, I just saidthis to him, he said,
  • 00:23:17.788 --> 00:23:20.357
  • "I hope after you'vegrown up in my home,
  • 00:23:20.458 --> 00:23:27.832
  • that you ask methat question again."
  • 00:23:27.932 --> 00:23:32.436
  • So years later, his sonwas getting married.
  • 00:23:32.536 --> 00:23:36.173
  • He and his sonwere in a side room
  • 00:23:36.273 --> 00:23:38.442
  • waiting for theprocessional to come in.
  • 00:23:38.542 --> 00:23:40.010
  • And then afterthe mothers were seated,
  • 00:23:40.110 --> 00:23:41.512
  • then the minister,he was doing the ceremony.
  • 00:23:41.612 --> 00:23:43.781
  • And the groom come out.
  • 00:23:43.881 --> 00:23:46.083
  • And then the bridesmaids comedown the bride, you know.
  • 00:23:46.183 --> 00:23:48.752
  • And so, they'rein the back room.
  • 00:23:48.853 --> 00:23:50.287
  • The father's got the door,and he's peeking like this.
  • 00:23:50.387 --> 00:23:53.123
  • And he realized, "Okay,it's time for us to go out."
  • 00:23:53.224 --> 00:23:55.059
  • So he said, "Okay,it's time for us to go out."
  • 00:23:55.159 --> 00:23:56.727
  • And then his son reached upand put his hand on the door.
  • 00:23:56.827 --> 00:24:01.999
  • And the dad turned around,and the son looked at him,
  • 00:24:02.099 --> 00:24:04.168
  • and he said, "Daddy?
  • 00:24:04.268 --> 00:24:07.972
  • Are you Jesus?"
  • 00:24:08.072 --> 00:24:13.544
  • We want to becomelike Jesus.
  • 00:24:13.644 --> 00:24:17.515
  • We want to becomea follower of Jesus.
  • 00:24:17.615 --> 00:24:22.353
  • So the world can see Jesus.
  • 00:24:22.453 --> 00:24:25.289
  • PASTOR ROBERT: So one of thethings we were created to be
  • 00:24:25.956 --> 00:24:29.493
  • is we were createdto become a follower.
  • 00:24:29.593 --> 00:24:33.397
  • A follower of Jesus.To be like Jesus.
  • 00:24:33.497 --> 00:24:36.767
  • The Bible says they werefirst called Christians,
  • 00:24:36.867 --> 00:24:39.403
  • which means Christlike at Antioch.
  • 00:24:39.503 --> 00:24:42.573
  • The world lookedat them and said,
  • 00:24:42.673 --> 00:24:44.875
  • "They look like Christ."
  • 00:24:44.975 --> 00:24:48.012
