  • salt in the dirt now,there's dirt,
  • 00:00:02.785 --> 00:00:03.685
  • there's other stuffthat's in the soil,
  • 00:00:03.786 --> 00:00:06.221
  • and so it couldbecome contaminated,
  • 00:00:06.321 --> 00:00:07.923
  • but the way thatsalt stays pure,
  • 00:00:08.023 --> 00:00:10.759
  • is it stays rightup next to the rock
  • 00:00:10.859 --> 00:00:12.995
  • and allows the waterto wash over it.

  • ROBERT: We're ina series called "REAL",
  • 00:00:29.344 --> 00:00:32.081
  • REAL is an acronym that standsfor relevant, engaging,
  • 00:00:32.181 --> 00:00:38.187
  • authentic life.
  • 00:00:38.287 --> 00:00:40.656
  • And we're really talkingabout sharing our faith
  • 00:00:40.756 --> 00:00:43.192
  • and being witnessesin the world.
  • 00:00:43.292 --> 00:00:45.360
  • And last week we talkedabout real fisherman,
  • 00:00:45.461 --> 00:00:49.131
  • this week we're gonna talk aboutengaging influencers,
  • 00:00:49.231 --> 00:00:54.036
  • in other words, God gives usinfluence -- now this is gonna
  • 00:00:54.136 --> 00:00:58.607
  • be one of those wisestatements that I have.
  • 00:00:58.707 --> 00:01:02.144
  • God gives us influenceto influence.
  • 00:01:02.244 --> 00:01:08.650
  • See how wise that was?
  • 00:01:08.750 --> 00:01:11.520
  • But He wants you -- in otherwords, we're gonna have
  • 00:01:11.620 --> 00:01:13.155
  • to engage people.
  • 00:01:13.255 --> 00:01:14.790
  • We're gonna have to beengaging ourselves.
  • 00:01:14.890 --> 00:01:16.992
  • So, engaging influencers,and we're gonna talk about
  • 00:01:17.092 --> 00:01:20.729
  • it from scripture,and God gives us two examples
  • 00:01:20.829 --> 00:01:24.867
  • of influencers that we are.
  • 00:01:24.967 --> 00:01:27.970
  • That we are, not justthat we're like, we are.
  • 00:01:28.070 --> 00:01:30.806
  • So look in Matthew 5, this ispart of the Sermon on the Mount,
  • 00:01:30.906 --> 00:01:33.709
  • verse 13.
  • 00:01:33.809 --> 00:01:35.410
  • "You are the saltof the earth",
  • 00:01:35.511 --> 00:01:41.083
  • you are the salt of the earth.
  • 00:01:41.183 --> 00:01:43.652
  • Oh this is just gonna beso good here in a moment.
  • 00:01:43.752 --> 00:01:46.021
  • I wanted to tell you rightnow how good that is,
  • 00:01:46.121 --> 00:01:48.857
  • but I'll tell you in a moment.
  • 00:01:48.957 --> 00:01:50.225
  • "You are the salt of theearth; but if the salt loses
  • 00:01:50.325 --> 00:01:54.930
  • its flavor", or it's savor,its ability to influence.
  • 00:01:55.030 --> 00:02:00.335
  • "How shall it be seasoned?
  • 00:02:00.435 --> 00:02:02.337
  • It's then good for nothing",it's where the phrase
  • 00:02:02.437 --> 00:02:05.240
  • good for nothing came --nevermind.
  • 00:02:05.340 --> 00:02:08.110
  • "It's good for nothingbut to be thrown out
  • 00:02:08.210 --> 00:02:10.746
  • and trampled underfoot by men."
  • 00:02:10.846 --> 00:02:13.081
  • Then look at verse 14, "Youare the light of the world.
  • 00:02:13.182 --> 00:02:19.788
  • A city that is set on ahill cannot be hidden.
  • 00:02:19.888 --> 00:02:22.591
  • Nor do they light a lamp andput it under a basket,
  • 00:02:22.691 --> 00:02:25.260
  • but on a lamp stand, and itgives light to all who
  • 00:02:25.360 --> 00:02:29.064
  • are in the house.
  • 00:02:29.164 --> 00:02:30.365
  • Let your light so shinebefore men, that they may see
  • 00:02:30.465 --> 00:02:34.736
  • your good works andglorify your Father in heaven."
  • 00:02:34.836 --> 00:02:39.474
  • Now last week we talkedabout how He used the analogy
  • 00:02:39.575 --> 00:02:41.877
  • of fishing to the fishermen, nowwe're talking about He's using
  • 00:02:41.977 --> 00:02:45.948
  • the analogies of salt and light,
  • 00:02:46.048 --> 00:02:48.417
  • but he takes it a stepfurther even, and He says this,
  • 00:02:48.517 --> 00:02:51.253
  • "you are, you actuallyare salt and you are light."
  • 00:02:51.353 --> 00:02:55.123
  • So, this week's message onlyhas two points, number one,
  • 00:02:55.224 --> 00:02:59.094
  • you are salt.
  • 00:02:59.194 --> 00:03:01.230
  • You are salt.
  • 00:03:01.330 --> 00:03:03.265
  • He said it very clearly.
  • 00:03:03.365 --> 00:03:04.800
  • How could He sayyou are salt?
  • 00:03:04.900 --> 00:03:07.703
  • And I personally don'tbelieve He was talking about
  • 00:03:07.803 --> 00:03:09.938
  • the salt content in yourbody, although you are .4% salt,
  • 00:03:10.038 --> 00:03:17.813
  • if youdidn't know that.
  • 00:03:17.913 --> 00:03:18.814
  • It would be .04 if you want
  • 00:03:18.914 --> 00:03:20.148
  • to think about it that way, butit is four tenths of one.
  • 00:03:20.249 --> 00:03:27.756
  • You don't care at all.
  • 00:03:27.856 --> 00:03:28.991
  • My wife when I said allthose numbers she had no clue,
  • 00:03:29.091 --> 00:03:31.693
  • nor does she care.
  • 00:03:31.793 --> 00:03:34.329
  • But let me put it to youthis way, okay, so I could break
  • 00:03:34.429 --> 00:03:36.231
  • it down into poundsvery easily, you could do that
  • 00:03:36.331 --> 00:03:38.500
  • mathematicallytaking your weight by .4
  • 00:03:38.600 --> 00:03:41.069
  • but another way to doit would be by teaspoons.
  • 00:03:41.169 --> 00:03:46.275
  • So if you weigh 125 poundsyou have 45 teaspoons of salt
  • 00:03:46.375 --> 00:03:52.681
  • in your body.
  • 00:03:52.781 --> 00:03:54.783
  • Just think about 45teaspoons already in your body.
  • 00:03:54.883 --> 00:03:58.520
  • If you weigh about 200 pounds,like some of us,
  • 00:03:58.620 --> 00:04:03.392
  • then you have about75 teaspoons of salt.
  • 00:04:03.492 --> 00:04:06.528
  • So, when Jesus said, "youare salt" obviously that's
  • 00:04:06.628 --> 00:04:09.398
  • what He was talkingabout, right?
  • 00:04:09.498 --> 00:04:11.266
  • Of course not.
  • 00:04:11.366 --> 00:04:12.267
  • He was talking aboutsalt as an influence.
  • 00:04:12.367 --> 00:04:15.003
  • It's an influence.
  • 00:04:15.103 --> 00:04:16.938
  • You might not know this butsalt is mentioned more
  • 00:04:17.039 --> 00:04:18.740
  • in the Bible thanyou might think.
  • 00:04:18.840 --> 00:04:21.243
  • Even in the Old Testament --this is going to shock you,
  • 00:04:21.343 --> 00:04:27.115
  • but when you gave sacrifices,and you know sacrifices
  • 00:04:27.215 --> 00:04:29.584
  • were in the Old Testament, allthrough the Old Testament,
  • 00:04:29.685 --> 00:04:32.721
  • you actuallyhad to season every sacrifice
  • 00:04:32.821 --> 00:04:36.558
  • with salt.
  • 00:04:36.658 --> 00:04:40.329
  • So, we know that everythingin the Old Testament
  • 00:04:40.429 --> 00:04:42.464
  • represents something,but let me show you
  • 00:04:42.564 --> 00:04:44.466
  • the scriptures and then tellyou what it represents.
  • 00:04:44.566 --> 00:04:47.235
  • Leviticus 2:13, "And everyoffering of your grain offering
  • 00:04:47.336 --> 00:04:52.007
  • you shall season with salt; youshall not allow the salt
  • 00:04:52.107 --> 00:04:57.746
  • of the covenant", notice thephrase salt of the covenant,
  • 00:04:57.846 --> 00:05:01.083
  • "of your God to be lacking fromyour grain offering.
  • 00:05:01.183 --> 00:05:04.186
  • With all your offeringsyou shall offer salt."
  • 00:05:04.286 --> 00:05:11.860
  • Numbers 18:19, "All theheave offerings of the holy
  • 00:05:11.960 --> 00:05:14.830
  • things, which the childrenof Israel offer to the Lord,
  • 00:05:14.930 --> 00:05:17.699
  • I have given to you and yoursons and daughters with you
  • 00:05:17.799 --> 00:05:20.635
  • as an ordinance forever;It is a covenant of salt
  • 00:05:20.736 --> 00:05:28.143
  • forever before the Lord withyou and your descendants
  • 00:05:28.243 --> 00:05:32.247
  • with you."
  • 00:05:32.347 --> 00:05:33.281
  • Okay, so why doesGod say this?
  • 00:05:33.382 --> 00:05:34.850
  • It's because salt preserves.
  • 00:05:34.950 --> 00:05:37.519
  • It's because salt issymbolic of eternity.
  • 00:05:37.619 --> 00:05:42.624
  • It is symbolic of causingsomething to continue to last.
  • 00:05:42.724 --> 00:05:47.896
  • So He calls it a covenant ofsalt because He says,
  • 00:05:47.996 --> 00:05:50.699
  • "I'm going to preserve you."
  • 00:05:50.799 --> 00:05:52.934
  • Now, hear me about this, wetalk about the perseverance
  • 00:05:53.034 --> 00:05:57.038
  • of the saints, but I wouldlike to talk about
  • 00:05:57.139 --> 00:06:00.075
  • the preservation of the saints.
  • 00:06:00.175 --> 00:06:03.912
  • This is different.
  • 00:06:04.012 --> 00:06:05.080
  • Three times, twice in thePsalms, once in Proverbs
  • 00:06:05.180 --> 00:06:08.550
  • this is where we get it, andI think we mix it up and we say
  • 00:06:08.650 --> 00:06:10.919
  • the perseverance of thesaints, but it's really
  • 00:06:11.019 --> 00:06:13.422
  • the preservation, three times,twice in Psalms,
  • 00:06:13.522 --> 00:06:16.291
  • once in Proverbs, God says,
  • 00:06:16.391 --> 00:06:18.059
  • "I preserve the soulsof my saints."
  • 00:06:18.160 --> 00:06:23.432
  • That makes me feel goodbecause it's not my sticking
  • 00:06:23.532 --> 00:06:25.700
  • power, it's Hisstaying power.
  • 00:06:25.801 --> 00:06:28.703
  • It's God who preservesmy soul forever.
  • 00:06:28.804 --> 00:06:33.141
  • I'm going to live foreverbecause of Jesus Christ,
  • 00:06:33.241 --> 00:06:35.243
  • so it's symbolic of eternity.
  • 00:06:35.343 --> 00:06:38.413
  • I was sharing this withDebbie, and I said salt,
  • 00:06:38.513 --> 00:06:41.516
  • and do you know what saltsymbolizes in the Bible?
  • 00:06:41.616 --> 00:06:43.218
  • She said I don'thave any clue.
  • 00:06:43.318 --> 00:06:44.319
  • I said it's eternity,it symbolizes eternity.
  • 00:06:44.419 --> 00:06:47.622
  • And she said, well maybethat's why you and I like salt
  • 00:06:47.722 --> 00:06:50.792
  • so much, because our marriage isan eternal covenant.
  • 00:06:50.892 --> 00:06:59.167
  • What's funny is all the women,aww, all the men are like,
  • 00:06:59.267 --> 00:07:03.305
  • yeah who cares, get onwith the message, come on,
  • 00:07:03.405 --> 00:07:05.574
  • keep going, get backto the salt stuff.
  • 00:07:05.674 --> 00:07:07.609
  • How many teaspoonsin our body?
  • 00:07:07.709 --> 00:07:09.578
  • Okay.
  • 00:07:09.678 --> 00:07:12.314
  • So salt is a preservative,now hear me.
  • 00:07:12.414 --> 00:07:15.851
  • He said, "you are the saltof the world, of the earth."
  • 00:07:15.951 --> 00:07:20.856
  • Listen, listen carefully,we are preserving our
  • 00:07:20.956 --> 00:07:27.128
  • world from ending.
  • 00:07:27.229 --> 00:07:29.998
  • We are preserving oursociety from decaying.
  • 00:07:30.098 --> 00:07:35.770
  • The more you take Christianfaith principals and morals
  • 00:07:35.871 --> 00:07:39.941
  • out of society the quickerthat society will die and decay.
  • 00:07:40.041 --> 00:07:44.813
  • You think about it.
  • 00:07:44.913 --> 00:07:45.947
  • We took prayer out ofour schools,
  • 00:07:46.047 --> 00:07:47.682
  • look what's happened.
  • 00:07:47.782 --> 00:07:49.818
  • We took the ten commandmentsout, look what's happened.
  • 00:07:49.918 --> 00:07:52.687
  • Our society -- the sooneryou take the salt out --
  • 00:07:52.787 --> 00:07:56.157
  • but it doesn't -- I would loveprayer in schools,
  • 00:07:56.258 --> 00:07:58.660
  • I would love to see all that,but there are still Christians
  • 00:07:58.760 --> 00:08:00.495
  • in schools.
  • 00:08:00.595 --> 00:08:02.264
  • There's still Christiansin courtrooms.
  • 00:08:02.364 --> 00:08:03.932
  • There could be Christianson the school board.
  • 00:08:04.032 --> 00:08:05.600
  • Christians on the city council,Christians in the state
  • 00:08:05.700 --> 00:08:07.936
  • legislature, and we couldpreserve our society
  • 00:08:08.036 --> 00:08:11.840
  • because we are salt.
  • 00:08:11.940 --> 00:08:15.277
  • We are salt, that's what Godsaid, that's what Jesus said.
  • 00:08:15.377 --> 00:08:19.147
  • Salt also makesthings taste good.
  • 00:08:19.247 --> 00:08:23.919
  • We make God tastegood, hopefully.
  • 00:08:24.019 --> 00:08:28.189
  • Some Christians are not goodfor anything,
  • 00:08:28.290 --> 00:08:31.526
  • just to be thrown out, and itsaid trampled underfoot.
  • 00:08:31.626 --> 00:08:34.462
  • You know what they actuallydid with bad salt?
  • 00:08:34.563 --> 00:08:35.997
  • They put it on their streetsto keep grass from growing.
  • 00:08:36.097 --> 00:08:39.200
  • It would kill everythingyou put it on.
  • 00:08:39.301 --> 00:08:40.702
  • That's what bad salt does.
  • 00:08:40.802 --> 00:08:42.470
  • So it's justtrodden underfoot.
  • 00:08:42.571 --> 00:08:43.638
  • But good salt makesGod taste good.
  • 00:08:43.738 --> 00:08:46.708
  • We talked last week, tasteand see that the Lord is good.
  • 00:08:46.808 --> 00:08:50.579
  • We can, because we're saltwe can make taste good.
  • 00:08:50.679 --> 00:08:53.648
  • I can remember some of themission trips --
  • 00:08:53.748 --> 00:08:56.384
  • I go on like nice mission tripsnow, nice hotels, nice cities,
  • 00:08:56.484 --> 00:09:05.026
  • nice places.
  • 00:09:05.126 --> 00:09:06.227
  • You know, things likethat, it's great.
  • 00:09:06.328 --> 00:09:08.663
  • Years ago, we used to goon some primitive mission trips,
  • 00:09:08.763 --> 00:09:12.601
  • and if you've done it, you'vestayed in a hut and you know,
  • 00:09:12.701 --> 00:09:14.836
  • stuff like that.
  • 00:09:14.936 --> 00:09:15.937
  • And some of those, it'samazing what you eat,
  • 00:09:16.037 --> 00:09:18.006
  • you get served, you know.
  • 00:09:18.106 --> 00:09:19.374
  • And they'll say it likethis, "Oh God has provided
  • 00:09:19.474 --> 00:09:22.711
  • a blessing for us.
  • 00:09:22.811 --> 00:09:24.779
  • He has providedmonkey brains."
  • 00:09:24.879 --> 00:09:30.986
  • Praise the lord.
  • 00:09:31.086 --> 00:09:36.091
  • Could you passthe salt, please?
  • 00:09:36.191 --> 00:09:40.061
  • I actually used to getdehydrated on these mission
  • 00:09:40.161 --> 00:09:41.997
  • trips, and I found out flying solong will dehydrate you,
  • 00:09:42.097 --> 00:09:46.067
  • you need to drink a lot of wateron long airplane flights,
  • 00:09:46.167 --> 00:09:48.536
  • I wasn'tdrinking enough water.
  • 00:09:48.637 --> 00:09:50.005
  • Sometimes you're afraidto drink the water.
  • 00:09:50.105 --> 00:09:51.973
  • Bottled water was not asavailable in some of these
  • 00:09:52.073 --> 00:09:54.442
  • places, and then I saltedeverything, which was,
  • 00:09:54.542 --> 00:09:59.280
  • you know, dried me out.
  • 00:09:59.381 --> 00:10:01.416
  • But salt makesthings taste good.
  • 00:10:01.516 --> 00:10:02.984
  • Okay, but how does salt?
  • 00:10:03.084 --> 00:10:04.285
  • It says if salt loses itsflavor, it's kind
  • 00:10:04.386 --> 00:10:07.522
  • of a modern word, butsavor is the word.
  • 00:10:07.622 --> 00:10:10.325
  • How does it lose its savor?
  • 00:10:10.425 --> 00:10:11.793
  • Okay, so how does saltbecome bad in the natural?
  • 00:10:11.893 --> 00:10:15.897
  • Salt is right up, it'sunderground, and it's right up
  • 00:10:15.997 --> 00:10:18.667
  • next to the rock.
  • 00:10:18.767 --> 00:10:22.203
  • Hopefully rightthere you got it.
  • 00:10:22.303 --> 00:10:25.507
  • 1 Corinthians says that thatrock they drank from the same
  • 00:10:25.607 --> 00:10:28.643
  • water in the desertand that rock was Christ.
  • 00:10:28.743 --> 00:10:33.448
  • So, it's right up next tothe rock, and it's purified
  • 00:10:33.548 --> 00:10:37.152
  • by the washingof water over it.
  • 00:10:37.252 --> 00:10:40.188
  • Hopefully you got that onetoo, cause Ephesians 5
  • 00:10:40.288 --> 00:10:42.223
  • says that we're washed bythe water of the word.
  • 00:10:42.323 --> 00:10:45.994
  • So the way you stay pure,and see there's earthly
  • 00:10:46.094 --> 00:10:49.030
  • elements, I'm talking aboutsalt in the dirt now,
  • 00:10:49.130 --> 00:10:51.466
  • there's dirt, there's otherstuff that's in the soil,
  • 00:10:51.566 --> 00:10:55.070
  • and so it could becomecontaminated, but the way
  • 00:10:55.170 --> 00:10:58.173
  • that salt stays pure, is itstays right up next to the rock
  • 00:10:58.273 --> 00:11:02.110
  • and allows thewater to wash over it.
  • 00:11:02.210 --> 00:11:04.279
  • Are y'all getting this?
  • 00:11:04.379 --> 00:11:06.181
  • Stay close to Jesusand in the word.
  • 00:11:06.281 --> 00:11:09.517
  • Otherwise all of us couldend up doing something foolish,
  • 00:11:09.617 --> 00:11:13.855
  • and if we do something foolishwe could lose our witness.
  • 00:11:13.955 --> 00:11:16.891
  • Are y'all following me?
  • 00:11:16.991 --> 00:11:19.094
  • Okay, cause I reallythink this is good stuff.
  • 00:11:19.194 --> 00:11:20.995
  • I mean, okay -- no youdon't have to clap.
  • 00:11:21.096 --> 00:11:24.299
  • Not now it's toolate, it's too late.
  • 00:11:24.399 --> 00:11:25.633
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:11:25.734 --> 00:11:28.770
  • We're supposed to be aninfluence everywhere we go,
  • 00:11:28.870 --> 00:11:30.572
  • so let me tell you a story Ithought about,
  • 00:11:30.672 --> 00:11:33.475
  • cause I was a little foolish inmy influence but I didn't do
  • 00:11:33.575 --> 00:11:35.844
  • something bad, okay,just let me say that.
  • 00:11:35.944 --> 00:11:38.379
  • But we were on an elder'sretreat with Shady Grove elders
  • 00:11:38.480 --> 00:11:41.983
  • and we went snow skiing, wewould meet in the mornings
  • 00:11:42.083 --> 00:11:44.753
  • and pray and worship and talkabout the vision of the church
  • 00:11:44.853 --> 00:11:47.255
  • and all, and then we'd dosomething fun in the afternoons
  • 00:11:47.355 --> 00:11:49.290
  • to relax and befriends together,
  • 00:11:49.390 --> 00:11:51.493
  • and so we went snow skiing.
  • 00:11:51.593 --> 00:11:54.028
  • And one of my friends hadnever skied before,
  • 00:11:54.129 --> 00:11:58.299
  • and so I was trying to help him,and I checked on him every now
  • 00:11:58.399 --> 00:12:01.770
  • and then, he wason the bunny slope.
  • 00:12:01.870 --> 00:12:04.172
  • He's 6'5, about 280 pounds,biggest bunny on the slope.
  • 00:12:04.272 --> 00:12:11.479
  • And, I thought,"you know what, I'm gonna
  • 00:12:11.579 --> 00:12:12.580
  • take him on the easiestgreen slope there is."
  • 00:12:12.680 --> 00:12:15.817
  • So we got ready to get onthe chair, I said,
  • 00:12:15.917 --> 00:12:17.952
  • "Now when the chair goes by yougotta go pretty fast,
  • 00:12:18.052 --> 00:12:20.789
  • we gotta get up there and geton the next chair."
  • 00:12:20.889 --> 00:12:22.323
  • You know, so when the firstchair went by, I took off,
  • 00:12:22.423 --> 00:12:25.260
  • he fell, and a lady skiedup beside me, I think she'd been
  • 00:12:25.360 --> 00:12:30.431
  • watching knowing he'd fall, andsat on the chair.
  • 00:12:30.532 --> 00:12:33.101
  • I'm watching to see thechair, I turn around and there's
  • 00:12:33.201 --> 00:12:34.569
  • this lady there.
  • 00:12:34.669 --> 00:12:37.338
  • And she started talking to me,and not in a good way.
  • 00:12:37.438 --> 00:12:42.610
  • And she started sayingthings about, you know,
  • 00:12:42.710 --> 00:12:45.747
  • "Would you like to meetlater and have drinks?"
  • 00:12:45.847 --> 00:12:47.415
  • Or something like that, andso I thought, the first thing
  • 00:12:47.515 --> 00:12:51.286
  • that came to my mindwas I said, "I'm married."
  • 00:12:51.386 --> 00:12:55.056
  • And she said,"Well I am too."
  • 00:12:55.156 --> 00:12:57.692
  • And I thought, "You know,I've gotta do something kind
  • 00:12:57.792 --> 00:12:59.994
  • of abrupt here, cause --to cut this off you know,
  • 00:13:00.094 --> 00:13:04.532
  • and so this is whatcame to my mind.
  • 00:13:04.632 --> 00:13:06.768
  • I just said, "Well, I'mmarried to two people."
  • 00:13:06.868 --> 00:13:09.437
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:13:09.537 --> 00:13:16.444
  • And she said, "Oh really?"
  • 00:13:16.544 --> 00:13:19.881
  • And she scooted over, youknow, you can't go far
  • 00:13:19.981 --> 00:13:21.416
  • on a ski lift you know.
  • 00:13:21.516 --> 00:13:23.518
  • She scooted overa little bit,
  • 00:13:23.618 --> 00:13:24.786
  • And then I sharedmy testimony with her
  • 00:13:24.886 --> 00:13:27.822
  • and we had like 15 minutes youknow, to the top,
  • 00:13:27.922 --> 00:13:30.458
  • and I thought, "Listen lady, youstarted it, so you're gonna get
  • 00:13:30.558 --> 00:13:34.395
  • the whole testimony, andyou're gonna get the gospel,
  • 00:13:34.495 --> 00:13:36.664
  • and you know, and it's50 feet to the ground.
  • 00:13:36.764 --> 00:13:40.902
  • Just be an influencewherever you go, alright.
  • 00:13:41.002 --> 00:13:43.504
  • There are probably betterways, but alright,
  • 00:13:43.605 --> 00:13:45.106
  • here's number two.
  • 00:13:45.206 --> 00:13:47.609
  • You're light.
  • 00:13:47.709 --> 00:13:49.777
  • You're salt, you are light.
  • 00:13:49.878 --> 00:13:51.913
  • Now, I could have said we,but I'm just using the pronoun
  • 00:13:52.013 --> 00:13:56.618
  • Jesus used, you, to make itpersonal to all of us.
  • 00:13:56.718 --> 00:13:59.921
  • You are salt, andyou are light.
  • 00:14:00.021 --> 00:14:02.690
  • Now here's what gets me, andthis has happened to you.
  • 00:14:02.790 --> 00:14:05.260
  • You read something in theBible and you think,
  • 00:14:05.360 --> 00:14:06.895
  • "That reminds me ofanother verse."
  • 00:14:06.995 --> 00:14:09.364
  • So, when I read you arethe light of the world,
  • 00:14:09.464 --> 00:14:14.535
  • it reminded me of anotherverse, the other verse was
  • 00:14:14.636 --> 00:14:17.205
  • in John when Jesus said, "Iam the light of the world."
  • 00:14:17.305 --> 00:14:23.244
  • So I thought, no, we're notreally the light of the world,
  • 00:14:23.344 --> 00:14:27.982
  • you're thelight of the world.
  • 00:14:28.082 --> 00:14:30.451
  • And it's like the Lord saidto me, "Did I say you're
  • 00:14:30.551 --> 00:14:32.086
  • the light of the world?"
  • 00:14:32.186 --> 00:14:34.355
  • Yeah you did but you alsosaid that you were the light
  • 00:14:34.455 --> 00:14:36.457
  • of the world.
  • 00:14:36.557 --> 00:14:37.525
  • "Yeah, but I said you'rethe light of the world."
  • 00:14:37.625 --> 00:14:38.793
  • So I had to go over to John8 to figure it out, and I read
  • 00:14:38.893 --> 00:14:41.896
  • John 8 and I didn'tquite get it, and then I read
  • 00:14:41.996 --> 00:14:43.798
  • John 9 and I got a little bitmore, then I got to John 12
  • 00:14:43.898 --> 00:14:46.601
  • and Igot it even more.
  • 00:14:46.701 --> 00:14:48.169
  • So, let me show you howJesus can say,
  • 00:14:48.269 --> 00:14:49.837
  • "I am the light of the world."
  • 00:14:49.938 --> 00:14:51.673
  • And then how He can also sayyou are the light
  • 00:14:51.773 --> 00:14:53.274
  • of the world, alright.
  • 00:14:53.374 --> 00:14:54.909
  • So John 8:12 says, "ThenJesus spoke to them again",
  • 00:14:55.009 --> 00:14:58.680
  • that's because He'd saidthis before, "saying,
  • 00:14:58.780 --> 00:15:00.515
  • 'I am the light of the world.
  • 00:15:00.615 --> 00:15:04.052
  • He who follows me shall notwalk in darkness,
  • 00:15:04.152 --> 00:15:06.821
  • but have the light of life."
  • 00:15:06.921 --> 00:15:09.724
  • John 9:5, watch thiscarefully, "As long as I am
  • 00:15:09.824 --> 00:15:15.129
  • in the world", as long asI'm on earth,
  • 00:15:15.229 --> 00:15:21.269
  • "I am the light of the world."
  • 00:15:21.369 --> 00:15:23.705
  • And then John 12:35, "ThenJesus said to them" --
  • 00:15:23.805 --> 00:15:27.075
  • okay, wait, take the scripturedown because everyone will
  • 00:15:27.175 --> 00:15:29.477
  • read it and not listen.
  • 00:15:29.577 --> 00:15:31.045
  • Alright, you gotta rememberthat John 12 begins a change.
  • 00:15:31.145 --> 00:15:36.551
  • John 12 He begins to preparethem for the end, John 13
  • 00:15:36.651 --> 00:15:41.823
  • He washes their feet, John14, 15, and 16
  • 00:15:41.923 --> 00:15:44.058
  • is the conversation atthe last supper.
  • 00:15:44.158 --> 00:15:46.194
  • John 17 is theprayer in the garden.
  • 00:15:46.294 --> 00:15:49.297
  • John 18 He'sarrested and tried.
  • 00:15:49.397 --> 00:15:51.232
  • John 19 He's crucified.
  • 00:15:51.332 --> 00:15:52.967
  • John 20 He rises from thedead and appears
  • 00:15:53.067 --> 00:15:55.737
  • to His disciples, and John 21 Heappears to His disciples
  • 00:15:55.837 --> 00:15:58.039
  • eight days later.
  • 00:15:58.139 --> 00:15:59.140
  • Okay, so John 12 He'sbeginning to tell them,
  • 00:15:59.240 --> 00:16:02.143
  • "I'm about to be takenout of the world."
  • 00:16:02.243 --> 00:16:04.846
  • Are you all following me?
  • 00:16:04.946 --> 00:16:05.847
  • So that's important alright.
  • 00:16:05.947 --> 00:16:07.348
  • John 12:35, "Then Jesus saidto them,
  • 00:16:07.448 --> 00:16:09.650
  • "A little while longer the lightis with you.
  • 00:16:09.751 --> 00:16:15.256
  • Walk while you have the light,lest darkness overtake you;
  • 00:16:15.356 --> 00:16:19.460
  • he who walks in darkness doesnot know where he is going.
  • 00:16:19.560 --> 00:16:22.163
  • While you have the light",now he's talking
  • 00:16:22.263 --> 00:16:24.565
  • to His disciples, "believe inthe light," watch this,
  • 00:16:24.665 --> 00:16:28.669
  • "that you may becomesons of the light."
  • 00:16:28.770 --> 00:16:34.542
  • See, Jesus is not in Hisincarnate form,
  • 00:16:34.642 --> 00:16:38.279
  • which incarnate meansin the flesh.
  • 00:16:38.379 --> 00:16:39.747
  • He's not in the fleshanymore as one person,
  • 00:16:39.847 --> 00:16:43.584
  • but He's still in the flesh.
  • 00:16:43.684 --> 00:16:47.388
  • He's in us.
  • 00:16:47.488 --> 00:16:49.657
  • As a matter of fact, it's soclear in the scripture,
  • 00:16:49.757 --> 00:16:51.592
  • just to remind you, we arecalled the what of Christ?
  • 00:16:51.692 --> 00:16:56.464
  • The body.
  • 00:16:56.564 --> 00:16:58.766
  • We are the body of Christon the earth right now.
  • 00:16:58.866 --> 00:17:02.437
  • Jesus is not --the light is in us.
  • 00:17:02.537 --> 00:17:05.440
  • So that's how He said you'rethe light of the world,
  • 00:17:05.540 --> 00:17:07.675
  • as long as I'm in the world,I'm the light of the world,
  • 00:17:07.775 --> 00:17:10.311
  • but when I leave, you'regonna be the light of the world.
  • 00:17:10.411 --> 00:17:12.680
  • The only light this worldwill have will be you.
  • 00:17:12.780 --> 00:17:18.519
  • And if you don't shine, ifyou put your light under
  • 00:17:18.619 --> 00:17:21.756
  • a basket, then we'regonna be in trouble.
  • 00:17:21.856 --> 00:17:26.194
  • I want you tothink about that.
  • 00:17:26.294 --> 00:17:28.029
  • If we don't -- as I said,serve on the city councils,
  • 00:17:28.129 --> 00:17:31.199
  • if we don't vote biblicalprinciples, if we don't
  • 00:17:31.299 --> 00:17:33.334
  • speak up, our world isgonna continue to decay.
  • 00:17:33.434 --> 00:17:38.739
  • It's gonna getdarker and darker.
  • 00:17:38.840 --> 00:17:40.741
  • The only way our worldis gonna get lighter
  • 00:17:40.842 --> 00:17:42.176
  • and lighter is if we'lltake the baskets off.
  • 00:17:42.276 --> 00:17:45.546
  • And a whole bunch of peoplehave baskets on, they have
  • 00:17:45.646 --> 00:17:49.417
  • baskets of fear, you know,I'm afraid what would happen.
  • 00:17:49.517 --> 00:17:54.422
  • They have baskets of shame,you know, I'm not worthy.
  • 00:17:54.522 --> 00:17:58.126
  • Well that's neverbeen the argument.
  • 00:17:58.226 --> 00:18:00.862
  • You're not.
  • 00:18:00.962 --> 00:18:02.130
  • He made you worthy, it's byhis blood and that's why you
  • 00:18:02.230 --> 00:18:03.865
  • can talk to someoneelse who's not worthy.
  • 00:18:03.965 --> 00:18:05.967
  • So we gotta get the basketsoff, we've got to become light.
  • 00:18:06.067 --> 00:18:09.937
  • Do you know why youwork where you work?
  • 00:18:10.037 --> 00:18:13.407

  • for me through that.
  • 00:18:16.410 --> 00:18:17.378
  • No.
  • 00:18:17.478 --> 00:18:19.080
  • That's not why God gaveyou the job you have.
  • 00:18:19.180 --> 00:18:22.283
  • Because God can providefor you with ravens.
  • 00:18:22.383 --> 00:18:25.253
  • He can send manna fromheaven, He can get water out

  • and His gates are pearls.
  • 00:18:40.668 --> 00:18:42.637
  • It's not because He'sextravagant, it's just cause
  • 00:18:42.737 --> 00:18:44.338
  • it's just layingaround, okay?
  • 00:18:44.438 --> 00:18:50.111
  • He has no problem providingfor His children.
  • 00:18:50.211 --> 00:18:51.846
  • He didn't give yourjob to provide for you.
  • 00:18:51.946 --> 00:18:55.850
  • He gave you your job so you'd bea light in a dark world.
  • 00:18:55.950 --> 00:19:01.522

  • not going to go to heavenunless you take your basket off.
  • 00:19:06.827 --> 00:19:12.266

  • 00:19:12.366 --> 00:19:13.834
  • How many of you have movedto a new house
  • 00:19:13.935 --> 00:19:17.471
  • or a new apartment,a new place of living,
  • 00:19:17.572 --> 00:19:19.240
  • let's say within the last fiveto seven years.
  • 00:19:19.340 --> 00:19:22.076
  • Can I see, putyour hands up.
  • 00:19:22.176 --> 00:19:24.278
  • Okay.
  • 00:19:24.378 --> 00:19:26.280
  • Did you pray that Godwould lead you there?
  • 00:19:26.380 --> 00:19:29.083
  • Did you pray and ask God,please, please give us
  • 00:19:29.183 --> 00:19:31.152
  • the house, lord, please, wewant that house so bad.
  • 00:19:31.252 --> 00:19:34.288
  • And God said yes.
  • 00:19:34.388 --> 00:19:35.923
  • You know why?
  • 00:19:36.023 --> 00:19:37.491
  • Yes He likes to bless Hiskids, but He puts you there
  • 00:19:37.592 --> 00:19:40.895
  • to be an influence.
  • 00:19:40.995 --> 00:19:44.065
  • Even worked miracles forsome of you to get there.
  • 00:19:44.165 --> 00:19:48.336
  • Right?Why?
  • 00:19:48.436 --> 00:19:50.204
  • Light.
  • 00:19:50.304 --> 00:19:51.305
  • It's a miracle.
  • 00:19:51.405 --> 00:19:52.640
  • Now, think about even thesetwo elements of light and salt.
  • 00:19:52.740 --> 00:19:58.412
  • Salt is an internalinfluence,
  • 00:19:58.512 --> 00:20:00.848
  • light is an external influence.
  • 00:20:00.948 --> 00:20:04.585
  • Salt is a covert influence,works over time.
  • 00:20:04.685 --> 00:20:10.424
  • Light is an overt influence.
  • 00:20:10.524 --> 00:20:16.364
  • Salt is a subtle influence.
  • 00:20:16.464 --> 00:20:24.538
  • Light is anobvious influence.
  • 00:20:24.639 --> 00:20:26.274
  • If you don't think light'san obvious influence walk into
  • 00:20:26.374 --> 00:20:28.442
  • a dark room andflip the light switch.
  • 00:20:28.542 --> 00:20:31.145
  • Darkness goes immediatelywhen light goes in.
  • 00:20:31.245 --> 00:20:35.516
  • Get up early tomorrowmorning and watch the sun
  • 00:20:35.616 --> 00:20:38.152
  • come up and see whereall the darkness goes.
  • 00:20:38.252 --> 00:20:42.790
  • You are salt, you are light.
  • 00:20:42.890 --> 00:20:47.795
  • Please hear me.
  • 00:20:47.895 --> 00:20:49.330
  • If we don't do our job theworld's gonna decay,
  • 00:20:49.430 --> 00:20:53.567
  • and it's gonna go fartherin the darkness.
  • 00:20:53.668 --> 00:20:57.271
  • I was on a hunting tripyears ago in Colorado,
  • 00:20:57.371 --> 00:21:01.542
  • some of you have heard is talkabout James Robison and I,
  • 00:21:01.642 --> 00:21:06.647
  • a Bible teacher named DudleyHall, some of us we were taught
  • 00:21:06.747 --> 00:21:10.651
  • back in the 80'sabout deliverance
  • 00:21:10.751 --> 00:21:12.920
  • from a carpet cleanernamed Milton Green.
  • 00:21:13.020 --> 00:21:16.090
  • And we didn't knowanything about demons
  • 00:21:16.190 --> 00:21:18.459
  • and deliverance, and we'd beentaught to kind of stay away
  • 00:21:18.559 --> 00:21:20.528
  • from that subject.
  • 00:21:20.628 --> 00:21:21.796
  • And this guy just taught usand it actually helped us
  • 00:21:21.896 --> 00:21:23.698
  • cause we realized, hey,as believers we can be
  • 00:21:23.798 --> 00:21:26.267
  • in bondage and it's a changethat came in my life,
  • 00:21:26.367 --> 00:21:29.704
  • James Robinson's life, DudleyHall's life, others,
  • 00:21:29.804 --> 00:21:32.840
  • you know, at that time.
  • 00:21:32.940 --> 00:21:34.742
  • So, we were on this deerhunt, and we had Milton
  • 00:21:34.842 --> 00:21:37.111
  • there teaching us aboutdeliverance, but it was a place
  • 00:21:37.211 --> 00:21:40.781
  • where we hunted where we wouldgo to different sections,
  • 00:21:40.881 --> 00:21:43.050
  • Colorado is divided intodifferent sections of land,
  • 00:21:43.150 --> 00:21:45.419
  • and then but then the camp wasall one place,
  • 00:21:45.519 --> 00:21:47.655
  • so there wereother men from other places
  • 00:21:47.755 --> 00:21:50.891
  • there that were camping, soat night we would meet men
  • 00:21:50.991 --> 00:21:53.194
  • from other statesor places, you know.
  • 00:21:53.294 --> 00:21:56.030
  • So there was this one guyDudley Hall and I started
  • 00:21:56.130 --> 00:21:58.265
  • talking to him about theLord, and he was real
  • 00:21:58.366 --> 00:22:01.035
  • interested, he had gonethrough some difficulties,
  • 00:22:01.135 --> 00:22:03.237
  • he wanted to hear about theLord, and so we started
  • 00:22:03.337 --> 00:22:05.473
  • talking to him.
  • 00:22:05.573 --> 00:22:06.741
  • Well one night we got himright to the place of accepting
  • 00:22:06.841 --> 00:22:09.443
  • Jesus, and he said, you know, Iwant to accept Jesus,
  • 00:22:09.543 --> 00:22:12.446
  • but something's stopping me.
  • 00:22:12.546 --> 00:22:14.682
  • I just don't know what itis, something's stopping me.
  • 00:22:14.782 --> 00:22:16.751
  • Well for 30 minutes we triedto reason with him,
  • 00:22:16.851 --> 00:22:20.421
  • we did everything we could andhe just saying, I know,
  • 00:22:20.521 --> 00:22:23.691
  • but I just, something'sstopping me.
  • 00:22:23.791 --> 00:22:25.393
  • Well during that time,now remember,
  • 00:22:25.493 --> 00:22:26.660
  • Dudley and I we'reprofessionals.
  • 00:22:26.761 --> 00:22:30.464
  • We get paid to do this,okay, we know what we're doing
  • 00:22:30.564 --> 00:22:33.434
  • you know, but we weren't gettinganywhere with this guy.
  • 00:22:33.534 --> 00:22:35.636
  • Well Milton walks up, who'sa carpet cleaner,
  • 00:22:35.736 --> 00:22:38.339
  • he's not a professional.
  • 00:22:38.439 --> 00:22:40.074
  • He walks up and this guyssays, I want to accept Jesus,
  • 00:22:40.174 --> 00:22:44.044
  • but something isstopping me, and Milton says,
  • 00:22:44.145 --> 00:22:46.447
  • it's demons.
  • 00:22:46.547 --> 00:22:49.984
  • And Dudley and I thought no!
  • 00:22:50.084 --> 00:22:52.920
  • You don't bring up demons toa lost person, I mean you wait
  • 00:22:53.020 --> 00:22:56.557
  • till you get saved,sometimes two or three years
  • 00:22:56.657 --> 00:22:58.559
  • before you talk aboutdemons, you don't just spring
  • 00:22:58.659 --> 00:23:02.296
  • demons on peoplelike that, you know.
  • 00:23:02.396 --> 00:23:07.268
  • And Milton says, theytalk to you, don't they?
  • 00:23:07.368 --> 00:23:09.804
  • They tell you that you'reunworthy, and you're no good,
  • 00:23:09.904 --> 00:23:13.274
  • and they tell youabout your childhood,
  • 00:23:13.374 --> 00:23:14.608
  • and they bring back thingsyour dad said to you.
  • 00:23:14.708 --> 00:23:16.243
  • And he just started -- andthey tell you that the world
  • 00:23:16.343 --> 00:23:18.712
  • would be betteroff without you.
  • 00:23:18.813 --> 00:23:19.914
  • And he said you'll bedriving down the road
  • 00:23:20.014 --> 00:23:21.749
  • and a demon'll tell you you justought to drive into
  • 00:23:21.849 --> 00:23:24.251
  • a concrete pillar andjust end it all.
  • 00:23:24.351 --> 00:23:26.020
  • He said you ever heard that?The guy said yeah.
  • 00:23:26.120 --> 00:23:28.189
  • And Milton said, you want tolisten to the guy who wants
  • 00:23:28.289 --> 00:23:29.824
  • to kill you, or you want togive your life to Jesus?
  • 00:23:29.924 --> 00:23:31.325
  • He said I want togive my life to Jesus.
  • 00:23:31.425 --> 00:23:40.901
  • Dudley said to me later,I'm quitting the ministry,
  • 00:23:41.001 --> 00:23:43.103
  • I can't even leadsomeone to Jesus.
  • 00:23:43.204 --> 00:23:49.376
  • What happened was lightwalked up, and Dudley and I had
  • 00:23:49.477 --> 00:23:57.051
  • our light under ourlittle traditional basket,
  • 00:23:57.151 --> 00:24:01.622
  • you notice Jesus neverstrayed away from talking
  • 00:24:01.722 --> 00:24:03.457
  • about demons, He justcast 'em out of people.
  • 00:24:03.557 --> 00:24:08.395
  • And light walked up andthis guy said, something's
  • 00:24:08.496 --> 00:24:10.831
  • stopping me, and light said,it's demons and they hate you.
  • 00:24:10.931 --> 00:24:16.003
  • Are you gonna keep listeningto them, or are you gonna
  • 00:24:16.103 --> 00:24:18.339
  • get saved?
  • 00:24:18.439 --> 00:24:19.874
  • I want us to be salt andlight, and change our world,
  • 00:24:19.974 --> 00:24:25.479
  • and I think we can do it.
  • 00:24:25.579 --> 00:24:26.780

  • Jesus Christ and to talkabout the bondage
  • 00:24:40.327 --> 00:24:44.164

  • because we don't tellthem about the Lord.
  • 00:24:54.041 --> 00:24:57.578

  • 00:24:57.678 --> 00:25:00.381
