  • PASTOR ROBERT MORRIS:Do you really think,
  • 00:00:02.027 --> 00:00:02.961
  • if you don't tell God about it,He doesn't know?
  • 00:00:03.062 --> 00:00:05.564
  • Do you really think youcan stand like this
  • 00:00:05.664 --> 00:00:07.332
  • in the presence of God?
  • 00:00:07.433 --> 00:00:10.536
  • And here's what you needto really understand.
  • 00:00:10.636 --> 00:00:12.037
  • What you have in your hand?
  • 00:00:12.137 --> 00:00:13.505
  • He's already died for it.
  • 00:00:13.605 --> 00:00:15.174
  • We are all sinners,saved by grace.
  • 00:00:15.841 --> 00:00:18.010
  • We are not to trust in ourown righteousness or works,
  • 00:00:18.110 --> 00:00:20.012
  • but on Christ'swork on the cross.
  • 00:00:20.112 --> 00:00:22.614
  • God's grace is availableto everyone,
  • 00:00:22.714 --> 00:00:24.716
  • but His gift of salvation isnever to be taken for granted.
  • 00:00:24.817 --> 00:00:28.720
  • Join my pastor, Robert Morris,as he teaches the importance
  • 00:00:28.821 --> 00:00:32.324
  • of rejoicing in the homecomingof a prodigal,
  • 00:00:32.424 --> 00:00:35.027
  • because God sees that personas valuable and precious.
  • 00:00:35.127 --> 00:00:39.398
  • ♪ ♪
  • 00:00:39.498 --> 00:00:54.580
  • PASTOR ROBERT: All right, I wantyou to turn to two passages of
  • 00:00:54.680 --> 00:00:57.049
  • Scripture, Luke 15, where thestory of the prodigal son
  • 00:00:57.149 --> 00:01:02.454
  • is found, and we're in a seriescalled, "Lost and Found",
  • 00:01:02.554 --> 00:01:05.891
  • so Luke 15, and then,if you can put a marker
  • 00:01:05.991 --> 00:01:09.027
  • at Genesis 20.
  • 00:01:09.128 --> 00:01:14.233
  • And we're in this seriescalled, "Lost and Found",
  • 00:01:14.333 --> 00:01:16.301
  • talking about the prodigal son,and I just want to
  • 00:01:16.401 --> 00:01:18.770
  • remind you, the definitionof prodigal
  • 00:01:18.871 --> 00:01:20.873
  • is lacking restraint.
  • 00:01:20.973 --> 00:01:24.376
  • Lacking restraint.
  • 00:01:24.476 --> 00:01:25.978
  • What that means is that allof us are prodigal
  • 00:01:26.078 --> 00:01:29.882
  • at some time in some areaof our lives.
  • 00:01:29.982 --> 00:01:34.086
  • All of us have beenat some point,
  • 00:01:34.186 --> 00:01:37.189
  • and maybe even right now.
  • 00:01:37.289 --> 00:01:39.124
  • So, this week I want totalk to you about,
  • 00:01:39.224 --> 00:01:41.560
  • "The Way Home".
  • 00:01:41.660 --> 00:01:43.028
  • If there's an area in your lifewhere you're away from God,
  • 00:01:43.128 --> 00:01:47.733
  • how do you come home?
  • 00:01:47.833 --> 00:01:49.468
  • What's the way home?
  • 00:01:49.568 --> 00:01:51.537
  • Luke 15, look at just thesefew verses,
  • 00:01:51.637 --> 00:01:55.307
  • Verses 17 through 19.
  • 00:01:55.407 --> 00:01:58.010
  • Verse 17 says, "But whenhe came to himself."
  • 00:01:58.110 --> 00:02:01.914
  • Now, I underlined it becauseit's important and I want to
  • 00:02:02.014 --> 00:02:04.283
  • come back to that phrase.
  • 00:02:04.383 --> 00:02:05.517
  • "When he came to himself,he said, "How many
  • 00:02:05.617 --> 00:02:08.687
  • of my father's hired servantshave bread enough and to spare,
  • 00:02:08.787 --> 00:02:12.457
  • and I perish with hunger?
  • 00:02:12.558 --> 00:02:14.626
  • I will arise and go to myfather and will say to him,
  • 00:02:14.726 --> 00:02:17.362
  • "Father"... I underlined thatbecause we're going to talk
  • 00:02:17.462 --> 00:02:20.098
  • about the Father.
  • 00:02:20.199 --> 00:02:21.466
  • "I've sinned against heavenand before you,
  • 00:02:21.567 --> 00:02:24.036
  • and I'm no longer worthy tobe called your son.
  • 00:02:24.136 --> 00:02:26.104
  • Make me like one ofyour hired servants."
  • 00:02:26.205 --> 00:02:30.008
  • I underlinedthe word servants.
  • 00:02:30.108 --> 00:02:31.877
  • Here's the reason,because I could sum up
  • 00:02:31.977 --> 00:02:33.845
  • for you the way home in one word- honesty.
  • 00:02:33.946 --> 00:02:42.721
  • Honesty, and I'm going togive you three points,
  • 00:02:42.821 --> 00:02:45.657
  • but in essence, thesethree points are in that verse
  • 00:02:45.757 --> 00:02:50.495
  • right there.
  • 00:02:50.596 --> 00:02:51.663
  • "When he came to himself,"that's when he got honest
  • 00:02:51.763 --> 00:02:53.699
  • with himself.
  • 00:02:53.799 --> 00:02:55.400
  • He was willing to go backand work as a servant,
  • 00:02:55.500 --> 00:02:59.671
  • so you know the servants wouldknow he was the son that had
  • 00:02:59.771 --> 00:03:02.975
  • squandered everything,so he was willing to be honest
  • 00:03:03.075 --> 00:03:04.843
  • with others.
  • 00:03:04.943 --> 00:03:05.911
  • And he was going to confessit to his father,
  • 00:03:06.011 --> 00:03:08.347
  • so he's willing to be honestwith God...with his father,
  • 00:03:08.447 --> 00:03:12.050
  • which would obviously representthe Father to us, all right?
  • 00:03:12.150 --> 00:03:14.987
  • So, three points.
  • 00:03:15.087 --> 00:03:15.988
  • You ready?
  • 00:03:16.088 --> 00:03:16.888
  • Number one,be honest with yourself.
  • 00:03:16.989 --> 00:03:20.425
  • Be honest with yourself.
  • 00:03:20.525 --> 00:03:22.628
  • Now, if you want to look atGenesis 20, I want to read you
  • 00:03:22.728 --> 00:03:25.731
  • a Scripture about somethingthat happened
  • 00:03:25.831 --> 00:03:29.401
  • when Abraham was traveling.
  • 00:03:29.501 --> 00:03:31.903
  • Genesis 20:1, "And Abrahamjourneyed from there
  • 00:03:32.004 --> 00:03:35.607
  • to the South."
  • 00:03:35.707 --> 00:03:36.908
  • I just want you to noticehe went to the South.
  • 00:03:37.009 --> 00:03:38.977
  • "And dwelt betweenKadesh and Shur."
  • 00:03:39.077 --> 00:03:42.914
  • "And he stayed in Gerar.
  • 00:03:43.015 --> 00:03:44.750
  • Now Abraham said of Sarah,his wife, "She is my sister."
  • 00:03:44.850 --> 00:03:49.154
  • And Abimelech, king of Gerar,sent and took Sarah.
  • 00:03:49.254 --> 00:03:51.923
  • But God came to Abimelech ina dream by night,
  • 00:03:52.024 --> 00:03:55.260
  • and said to him, "Indeed you area dead man because of
  • 00:03:55.360 --> 00:03:58.463
  • the woman whom you have taken,for she is a man's wife."
  • 00:03:58.563 --> 00:04:02.200
  • Now, we're going to go on,but let's just stop
  • 00:04:02.301 --> 00:04:03.769
  • for a moment.
  • 00:04:03.869 --> 00:04:06.338
  • You're not having a good nightwhen God comes into your bedroom
  • 00:04:06.438 --> 00:04:14.446
  • and says you're a dead man.
  • 00:04:14.546 --> 00:04:16.448
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:04:16.548 --> 00:04:18.750
  • Would you agree with that?
  • 00:04:18.850 --> 00:04:19.985
  • That could ruin your night.
  • 00:04:20.085 --> 00:04:21.653
  • And Abimelech in essence said,whoa, can we just talk?
  • 00:04:21.753 --> 00:04:23.522
  • Could you just put the sworddown, just for a moment,
  • 00:04:23.622 --> 00:04:27.359
  • and let's talk about this.
  • 00:04:27.459 --> 00:04:29.328
  • All right?
  • 00:04:29.428 --> 00:04:29.895
  • So, look at Verse 4.
  • 00:04:29.995 --> 00:04:31.063
  • "But Abimelech had notcome near her, and he said,
  • 00:04:31.163 --> 00:04:33.365
  • "Lord, will you slaya righteous nation also?
  • 00:04:33.465 --> 00:04:35.734
  • Did he not say to me,"She is my sister"?
  • 00:04:35.834 --> 00:04:38.170
  • And she, even she herself said,"He is my brother."
  • 00:04:38.270 --> 00:04:41.740
  • Now, watch this phrase.
  • 00:04:41.840 --> 00:04:43.909
  • "In the integrity of my heartand innocence of my hands,
  • 00:04:44.009 --> 00:04:49.948
  • I have done this."
  • 00:04:50.048 --> 00:04:51.717
  • And God said to him ina dream"...this would be
  • 00:04:51.817 --> 00:04:54.186
  • a great verse to memorize,"Yes, I know that you did this
  • 00:04:54.286 --> 00:04:58.256
  • in the integrity of your heart,for I also withheld you
  • 00:04:58.357 --> 00:05:05.230
  • from sinning against Me,therefore I did not
  • 00:05:05.330 --> 00:05:10.769
  • let you touch her."
  • 00:05:10.869 --> 00:05:13.905
  • Now, you just read somethingin your Bible that's amazing.
  • 00:05:14.005 --> 00:05:16.341
  • Because he was walking inthe integrity of his heart,
  • 00:05:16.441 --> 00:05:21.646
  • God withheld himfrom sinning.
  • 00:05:21.747 --> 00:05:25.484
  • Is that amazing?
  • 00:05:25.584 --> 00:05:27.352
  • I mean, this is anunbelievable thing,
  • 00:05:27.452 --> 00:05:28.653
  • and I'm calling it honesty so wecan just catch the meaning
  • 00:05:28.754 --> 00:05:34.559
  • of this, that we need to learnto be honest in our hearts.
  • 00:05:34.659 --> 00:05:39.231
  • Now this word, integrity,means in the Hebrew,
  • 00:05:39.331 --> 00:05:43.101
  • completeness...completeness.
  • 00:05:43.201 --> 00:05:45.804
  • In other words, if you'reselling something
  • 00:05:45.904 --> 00:05:49.474
  • and you hold some back, it meansnot holding anything back,
  • 00:05:49.574 --> 00:05:54.913
  • the whole thing.
  • 00:05:55.013 --> 00:05:56.348
  • If you hold something back,then you're not dealing
  • 00:05:56.448 --> 00:05:58.717
  • with integrity.
  • 00:05:58.817 --> 00:06:01.019
  • It even refers to, if youwere to cut part of it off,
  • 00:06:01.119 --> 00:06:05.157
  • like cut some of it offand then say this is
  • 00:06:05.257 --> 00:06:08.193
  • the whole thing.
  • 00:06:08.293 --> 00:06:10.195
  • That's not integrity.
  • 00:06:10.295 --> 00:06:12.097
  • Integrity means thatit's the whole thing,
  • 00:06:12.197 --> 00:06:14.566
  • it's complete.
  • 00:06:14.666 --> 00:06:15.734
  • And I'm saying that ifyou're going to come home
  • 00:06:15.834 --> 00:06:19.404
  • in any area of your lifewhere you're away from home,
  • 00:06:19.504 --> 00:06:22.340
  • where you're prodigal,you're a believer
  • 00:06:22.441 --> 00:06:24.242
  • but you're not living for Godin that area of your life,
  • 00:06:24.342 --> 00:06:26.778
  • you're going to have to gethonest with yourself about it.
  • 00:06:26.878 --> 00:06:30.115
  • And a whole lot of times,we don't want to be
  • 00:06:30.215 --> 00:06:32.684
  • honest with ourselves.
  • 00:06:32.784 --> 00:06:34.886
  • When I was a young preacher,I remember I was praying
  • 00:06:34.986 --> 00:06:39.491
  • one time.
  • 00:06:39.591 --> 00:06:40.725
  • I was about to speak that night,and I said to the Lord,
  • 00:06:40.826 --> 00:06:43.795
  • Lord, help medo well tonight.
  • 00:06:43.895 --> 00:06:46.231
  • And the Lord said to me, why?
  • 00:06:46.331 --> 00:06:53.238
  • Why?
  • 00:06:53.338 --> 00:06:54.906
  • Now, you have to rememberthat I lived a life of deception
  • 00:06:55.006 --> 00:06:57.843
  • for the first partof our marriage,
  • 00:06:57.943 --> 00:07:00.378
  • and this was after that,and I'd come clean,
  • 00:07:00.479 --> 00:07:03.548
  • and I wanted to stay clean,and I didn't want to live
  • 00:07:03.648 --> 00:07:06.084
  • a life of deception anymore.
  • 00:07:06.184 --> 00:07:07.486
  • And so, when the Lord wouldask me these things,
  • 00:07:07.586 --> 00:07:09.588
  • I just had to be honestwith Him.
  • 00:07:09.688 --> 00:07:12.324
  • And so He said, why do youwant to look good tonight?
  • 00:07:12.424 --> 00:07:15.026
  • And I said, well,there are some people here
  • 00:07:15.126 --> 00:07:17.929
  • that I'd like to impress.
  • 00:07:18.029 --> 00:07:21.366
  • That really was in my heart.
  • 00:07:21.466 --> 00:07:23.802
  • And I'll never forget,He said to me,
  • 00:07:23.902 --> 00:07:25.337
  • that is exactly right.
  • 00:07:25.437 --> 00:07:26.838
  • That is why youjust prayed that.
  • 00:07:26.938 --> 00:07:28.306
  • You didn't pray, Lord,help me to minister
  • 00:07:28.406 --> 00:07:29.941
  • to the people tonight.
  • 00:07:30.041 --> 00:07:31.042
  • You didn't pray, Holy Spirit,lead me.
  • 00:07:31.142 --> 00:07:35.180
  • You said, Lord,help me to do well,
  • 00:07:35.280 --> 00:07:37.949
  • because there are some peoplehere you want to impress.
  • 00:07:38.049 --> 00:07:39.951
  • And then He said this to me.
  • 00:07:40.051 --> 00:07:41.453
  • And if you will remain honest,then I will bring you
  • 00:07:41.553 --> 00:07:45.490
  • to the place that you prayed,Lord, help me
  • 00:07:45.590 --> 00:07:47.692
  • to do well tonight,for the Kingdom's sake.
  • 00:07:47.792 --> 00:07:51.329
  • But I can't get you thereif you won't admit it
  • 00:07:51.429 --> 00:07:53.899
  • to yourself.
  • 00:07:53.999 --> 00:07:55.834
  • So, number one is to behonest with yourself.
  • 00:07:55.934 --> 00:07:57.502
  • Here's number two,be honest with others.
  • 00:07:57.602 --> 00:08:01.873
  • You remember he said,I'll just go and say,
  • 00:08:01.973 --> 00:08:04.442
  • make me as one ofyour hired servants.
  • 00:08:04.543 --> 00:08:05.877
  • He'd be workingwith the servants.
  • 00:08:05.977 --> 00:08:08.980
  • You know they would know.
  • 00:08:09.080 --> 00:08:10.215
  • They'd say, well, you're a son,what are you doing,
  • 00:08:10.315 --> 00:08:11.816
  • doing this?
  • 00:08:11.917 --> 00:08:13.118
  • Well, because I left the homeand I squandered everything.
  • 00:08:13.218 --> 00:08:15.620
  • So, he was willing to humblehimself in front of
  • 00:08:15.720 --> 00:08:19.958
  • other people and to be honest.
  • 00:08:20.058 --> 00:08:24.296
  • Have you ever heard someone say,I'm going to be honest
  • 00:08:24.396 --> 00:08:28.400
  • with you now?
  • 00:08:28.500 --> 00:08:32.637
  • Doesn't that bother you?
  • 00:08:32.737 --> 00:08:35.073
  • Don't you want to say,what have you been being?
  • 00:08:35.173 --> 00:08:40.478
  • What have you been?
  • 00:08:40.579 --> 00:08:41.980
  • What do you mean?
  • 00:08:42.080 --> 00:08:43.114
  • And, I kind of want to sayto the person, you know,
  • 00:08:43.214 --> 00:08:45.383
  • I had no reason to doubtyour honesty until now.
  • 00:08:45.483 --> 00:08:51.923
  • Now, I'm not picking on you,but if you've gotten
  • 00:08:52.023 --> 00:08:54.526
  • in the habit of saying that,I'm going to be honest with you
  • 00:08:54.626 --> 00:08:56.895
  • - not even now, but I'm goingto be honest with you.
  • 00:08:56.995 --> 00:09:01.833
  • I really think that youprobably at one time were
  • 00:09:01.933 --> 00:09:05.036
  • not honest, and that's whyyou started saying,
  • 00:09:05.136 --> 00:09:10.108
  • I'm going to be honest with you.
  • 00:09:10.208 --> 00:09:13.578
  • There's no reason totell people you're honest,
  • 00:09:13.678 --> 00:09:16.514
  • if you're honest.
  • 00:09:16.615 --> 00:09:18.416
  • See, we've got to come tothe place that
  • 00:09:18.516 --> 00:09:19.551
  • we're going to be honestwith other people.
  • 00:09:19.651 --> 00:09:20.719
  • James 5, look at this verse.
  • 00:09:20.819 --> 00:09:24.089
  • Verse 16 says, "Confess yourtrespasses to one another,
  • 00:09:24.189 --> 00:09:29.127
  • and pray for one anotherthat you may be healed."
  • 00:09:29.227 --> 00:09:35.166
  • "Confess your trespassesto one another,
  • 00:09:35.266 --> 00:09:37.102
  • and pray for one anotherthat you may be healed."
  • 00:09:37.202 --> 00:09:39.070
  • Confess your sins.
  • 00:09:39.170 --> 00:09:40.972
  • Now, I actually wanted toshow you this Greek word
  • 00:09:41.072 --> 00:09:42.707
  • because I like seeing whatthe meaning is,
  • 00:09:42.807 --> 00:09:45.844
  • because it seems to more fullyexplain the word to me.
  • 00:09:45.944 --> 00:09:49.781
  • The Greek word here fortrespasses is paraptoma...
  • 00:09:49.881 --> 00:09:54.853
  • paraptoma.
  • 00:09:54.953 --> 00:09:57.055
  • Now, notice the P-A-R-A,because I'll come back to that,
  • 00:09:57.155 --> 00:10:00.558
  • and I've shown youother Greek words that have
  • 00:10:00.659 --> 00:10:02.994
  • that prefix, and I knowyou love Greek.
  • 00:10:03.094 --> 00:10:05.296
  • I just know it, so that'swhy I'm going to show it to you.
  • 00:10:05.397 --> 00:10:07.265
  • All right, but here it is,paraptoma.
  • 00:10:07.365 --> 00:10:09.067
  • It translates as trespassnine times.
  • 00:10:09.167 --> 00:10:12.470
  • Confess your trespasses.
  • 00:10:12.570 --> 00:10:13.505
  • Offense, seven times -seven times,
  • 00:10:13.605 --> 00:10:16.574
  • this word's translatedas offense.
  • 00:10:16.675 --> 00:10:18.209
  • Think about that.
  • 00:10:18.309 --> 00:10:19.611
  • Confess your offenses.
  • 00:10:19.711 --> 00:10:23.348
  • Confess your offensesto others.
  • 00:10:23.448 --> 00:10:26.017
  • Can you imagine if youbrought your offenses
  • 00:10:26.117 --> 00:10:27.952
  • out in the light?
  • 00:10:28.053 --> 00:10:30.355
  • How many of those could bedealt with the right way,
  • 00:10:30.455 --> 00:10:32.190
  • instead of holding on to itand being in bitterness
  • 00:10:32.290 --> 00:10:35.260
  • the rest of your lifeover something?
  • 00:10:35.360 --> 00:10:36.761
  • Confess your offenses.
  • 00:10:36.861 --> 00:10:38.096
  • Look at this.
  • 00:10:38.196 --> 00:10:39.597
  • Confess your sinsis the next word.
  • 00:10:39.698 --> 00:10:42.767
  • Three times, it's fall.
  • 00:10:42.867 --> 00:10:44.569
  • Confess your falls.
  • 00:10:44.669 --> 00:10:46.271
  • Confess your falls.
  • 00:10:46.371 --> 00:10:48.640
  • And then, faults,confess your faults.
  • 00:10:48.740 --> 00:10:52.477
  • That's something all of uslook forward to doing,
  • 00:10:52.577 --> 00:10:54.145
  • isn't it, telling everybodyall of our faults?
  • 00:10:54.245 --> 00:10:57.248
  • But if we do...I'm not talkingabout to the whole world,
  • 00:10:57.348 --> 00:11:00.752
  • but there better be someoneyou can talk to.
  • 00:11:00.852 --> 00:11:03.121
  • There better be somethat you can talk to.
  • 00:11:03.221 --> 00:11:05.557
  • And then, here are the twodefinitions for the word.
  • 00:11:05.657 --> 00:11:07.158
  • The first one is to fall besideor near something.
  • 00:11:07.258 --> 00:11:10.729
  • To fall besideor near something.
  • 00:11:10.829 --> 00:11:12.630
  • And then, the second one isa lapse or deviation
  • 00:11:12.731 --> 00:11:14.866
  • from truth and uprightness.
  • 00:11:14.966 --> 00:11:17.001
  • In other words, we need toconfess our deviations
  • 00:11:17.102 --> 00:11:20.705
  • from the truth.
  • 00:11:20.805 --> 00:11:22.707
  • When we deviate,just a little bit,
  • 00:11:22.807 --> 00:11:25.477
  • we need to be talking to someoneabout that,
  • 00:11:25.577 --> 00:11:27.879
  • so that we can be healed,we can be made whole.
  • 00:11:27.979 --> 00:11:30.381
  • This word says to fallbeside something
  • 00:11:30.482 --> 00:11:34.085
  • or near something.
  • 00:11:34.185 --> 00:11:35.153
  • Here's why it's beside or near.
  • 00:11:35.253 --> 00:11:36.721
  • I told you, rememberP-A-R-A, para.
  • 00:11:36.821 --> 00:11:39.324
  • Para means alongsideor beside, alongside.
  • 00:11:39.424 --> 00:11:43.828
  • All right, so why isthis para in this word?
  • 00:11:43.928 --> 00:11:46.898
  • Because it's right beside it.
  • 00:11:46.998 --> 00:11:48.933
  • Here's what I want youto notice.
  • 00:11:49.033 --> 00:11:50.668
  • When you fall right besidethe truth, when you
  • 00:11:50.769 --> 00:11:54.272
  • just barely miss it, confess it.
  • 00:11:54.372 --> 00:11:57.008
  • When you fall alongside...I mean, you're just right...
  • 00:11:57.108 --> 00:12:01.479
  • not when you walk awayfrom God five miles.
  • 00:12:01.579 --> 00:12:03.581
  • When you just trip, which iswhat the word offense means,
  • 00:12:03.681 --> 00:12:06.518
  • to stumble...when you stumblejust a little bit
  • 00:12:06.618 --> 00:12:09.354
  • beside the truth, confess it,and I'm going to tell you why.
  • 00:12:09.454 --> 00:12:12.490
  • Because if you won't confessthe little things,
  • 00:12:12.590 --> 00:12:19.931
  • then you definitely won'tconfess the big things.
  • 00:12:20.031 --> 00:12:22.967
  • But, if you get in a habitof bringing the little things
  • 00:12:23.067 --> 00:12:26.504
  • into the light,then you'll understand
  • 00:12:26.604 --> 00:12:29.908
  • that you can bringthe big things as well.
  • 00:12:30.008 --> 00:12:32.110
  • If you miss the mark by a mile,or by an inch,
  • 00:12:32.210 --> 00:12:37.448
  • you ought to bring it out inthe light, because if you're in
  • 00:12:37.549 --> 00:12:41.686
  • a habit of bringing thingsinto the light,
  • 00:12:41.786 --> 00:12:45.123
  • Satan only works in darkness,he can't work in the light.
  • 00:12:45.223 --> 00:12:49.227
  • Now, I'm going to saysomething here,
  • 00:12:49.327 --> 00:12:53.064
  • it's going to be very closeto home, okay?
  • 00:12:53.164 --> 00:12:56.467
  • I'm going to really talk toyou straight about an issue.
  • 00:12:56.568 --> 00:13:00.638
  • Can you confess to your spouseif you're struggling with lust?
  • 00:13:00.738 --> 00:13:13.651
  • Here's another question.
  • 00:13:13.751 --> 00:13:16.287
  • Can your spouse confessto you if he or she
  • 00:13:16.387 --> 00:13:21.626
  • is struggling with lust?
  • 00:13:21.726 --> 00:13:23.461
  • This is extremely important.
  • 00:13:23.561 --> 00:13:26.664
  • And let me just speak tothe ladies for a moment,
  • 00:13:26.764 --> 00:13:28.766
  • because if he won't tell you,who is he going to tell?
  • 00:13:28.867 --> 00:13:37.075
  • And if he can't tell you,without you blowing up,
  • 00:13:37.175 --> 00:13:41.713
  • and without yougetting offended,
  • 00:13:41.813 --> 00:13:42.947
  • and without you getting insecureand fearful,
  • 00:13:43.047 --> 00:13:44.849
  • doesn't that just train himto keep it in the dark?
  • 00:13:44.949 --> 00:13:52.290
  • Please, please hear me.
  • 00:13:52.390 --> 00:13:56.094
  • You're training himto keep it secret.
  • 00:13:56.194 --> 00:13:58.630
  • You're training him.
  • 00:13:58.730 --> 00:14:00.531
  • Now, here's why I say this.
  • 00:14:00.632 --> 00:14:02.767
  • I can share thingswith Debbie, my struggles.
  • 00:14:02.867 --> 00:14:06.137
  • I can share it with her.
  • 00:14:06.237 --> 00:14:08.239
  • Probably one of the reasonswhy is because when I was
  • 00:14:08.339 --> 00:14:12.310
  • 25 years old is when I cameclean with her,
  • 00:14:12.410 --> 00:14:14.612
  • and God began to do a cleansingwork in my life in this area.
  • 00:14:14.712 --> 00:14:19.350
  • But what she understood,by God's grace,
  • 00:14:19.450 --> 00:14:23.154
  • was that I love her, and ifI'm struggling in an area,
  • 00:14:23.254 --> 00:14:26.925
  • it doesn't meanthat I don't love her.
  • 00:14:27.025 --> 00:14:29.460
  • It doesn't mean that.
  • 00:14:29.560 --> 00:14:30.762
  • You understandwhat I'm saying?
  • 00:14:30.862 --> 00:14:31.596
  • Now, listen to me.
  • 00:14:31.696 --> 00:14:33.531
  • It would be better for himto struggle with you
  • 00:14:33.631 --> 00:14:36.067
  • than to strugglewith another woman.
  • 00:14:36.167 --> 00:14:42.473
  • Please hear me.
  • 00:14:42.573 --> 00:14:43.708
  • The only reason I would goso personal is to help you,
  • 00:14:43.808 --> 00:14:49.981
  • and not just formarried people here.
  • 00:14:50.081 --> 00:14:51.349
  • Single people, you need tohave someone you can talk to.
  • 00:14:51.449 --> 00:14:54.519
  • And if you're engaged,listen to me.
  • 00:14:54.619 --> 00:14:56.187
  • Ma'am, the worst thing youcould give him is what
  • 00:14:56.287 --> 00:15:00.792
  • the world tells you to give himso you can keep him,
  • 00:15:00.892 --> 00:15:04.829
  • because you will developan appetite in him,
  • 00:15:04.929 --> 00:15:06.798
  • because it's outsideof marriage.
  • 00:15:06.898 --> 00:15:08.232
  • You'll develop an appetitein him
  • 00:15:08.333 --> 00:15:09.600
  • that he may satisfy later.
  • 00:15:09.701 --> 00:15:13.338
  • And, I'd like to saysomething else, too.
  • 00:15:13.438 --> 00:15:14.572
  • If you're here and you'vegone through
  • 00:15:14.672 --> 00:15:16.441
  • this horrible tragedy ofinfidelity in your marriage,
  • 00:15:16.541 --> 00:15:19.711
  • I want to tell you something.
  • 00:15:19.811 --> 00:15:21.245
  • It wasn't your fault.
  • 00:15:21.346 --> 00:15:23.781
  • I do want you to know it.
  • 00:15:23.881 --> 00:15:24.816
  • Don't hear me and say,well, we didn't have
  • 00:15:24.916 --> 00:15:26.417
  • that open atmosphere,and we did have premarital sex.
  • 00:15:26.517 --> 00:15:28.486
  • It still...it wasn't your fault,and I want to tell you why,
  • 00:15:28.586 --> 00:15:30.655
  • because nothingexcuses adultery.
  • 00:15:30.755 --> 00:15:33.825
  • Nothing excuses it.
  • 00:15:33.925 --> 00:15:35.460
  • It's not excusablebecause, well,
  • 00:15:35.560 --> 00:15:37.528
  • I didn't do everything right.
  • 00:15:37.628 --> 00:15:38.930
  • You can't imagine how manycouples I've walked through this
  • 00:15:39.030 --> 00:15:41.032
  • and the spouse thatstayed pure said,
  • 00:15:41.132 --> 00:15:43.434
  • you know, I know part ofit's my fault.
  • 00:15:43.534 --> 00:15:45.103
  • No, none of it's your fault.
  • 00:15:45.203 --> 00:15:47.972
  • None of it's your fault,because he still should have
  • 00:15:48.072 --> 00:15:50.675
  • walked pure before the Lord.
  • 00:15:50.775 --> 00:15:52.944
  • So, please,please hear me, okay?
  • 00:15:53.044 --> 00:15:55.046
  • So, I came clean with Debbiewhen I was 25 years old.
  • 00:15:55.146 --> 00:15:58.816
  • I sat down with herand I said to her,
  • 00:15:58.916 --> 00:16:01.085
  • I need to tell you everythingthat I've ever done.
  • 00:16:01.185 --> 00:16:05.723
  • I need totell you everything.
  • 00:16:05.823 --> 00:16:07.258
  • And I told her everythingthat I'd ever done,
  • 00:16:07.358 --> 00:16:09.160
  • and I'll never forgether response.
  • 00:16:09.260 --> 00:16:11.329
  • Here was her response.
  • 00:16:11.429 --> 00:16:12.697
  • I knew you were badwhen I married you.
  • 00:16:12.797 --> 00:16:20.471
  • I didn't know you were that bad,but I knew you were bad.
  • 00:16:20.571 --> 00:16:26.210
  • But, thank you for telling me.
  • 00:16:26.310 --> 00:16:28.212
  • And I want to remind you,the reason I married you
  • 00:16:28.312 --> 00:16:31.516
  • is because I knew you loved God,and I knew you loved me,
  • 00:16:31.616 --> 00:16:35.286
  • even though you had struggles,and I love you.
  • 00:16:35.386 --> 00:16:39.857
  • Please, struggle together.
  • 00:16:39.957 --> 00:16:42.527
  • Whether you're married or not,struggle with someone,
  • 00:16:42.627 --> 00:16:44.295
  • talk with someone,all right?
  • 00:16:44.395 --> 00:16:45.830
  • Here's number three,be honest with God.
  • 00:16:45.930 --> 00:16:51.803
  • Be honest with yourself,be honest with others,
  • 00:16:51.903 --> 00:16:54.138
  • and be honest with God.
  • 00:16:54.238 --> 00:16:55.540
  • He was going home to becompletely honest
  • 00:16:55.640 --> 00:16:57.141
  • with his father.
  • 00:16:57.241 --> 00:16:59.944
  • We see that, right therein the prodigal son.
  • 00:17:00.044 --> 00:17:02.246
  • Now, let me show you anotherScripture here about
  • 00:17:02.346 --> 00:17:06.317
  • holding something back.
  • 00:17:06.417 --> 00:17:07.952
  • Acts 5:1, "But a certainman named Ananias,
  • 00:17:08.052 --> 00:17:12.156
  • with Sapphira, his wife,sold a possession."
  • 00:17:12.256 --> 00:17:14.292
  • Now, watch this.
  • 00:17:14.392 --> 00:17:15.960
  • "And he kept back part."
  • 00:17:16.060 --> 00:17:21.199
  • That's not walking inintegrity, honesty.
  • 00:17:21.299 --> 00:17:23.434
  • "He kept back partof the proceeds,
  • 00:17:23.534 --> 00:17:25.369
  • his wife also being aware of it,and brought a certain part
  • 00:17:25.470 --> 00:17:28.139
  • and laid it atthe apostle's feet."
  • 00:17:28.239 --> 00:17:31.075
  • In other words, like thisis the whole thing,
  • 00:17:31.175 --> 00:17:33.144
  • but it wasn't the whole thing.
  • 00:17:33.244 --> 00:17:34.545
  • "But Peter said, "Ananias,why has Satan filled your heart
  • 00:17:34.645 --> 00:17:37.615
  • to lie to the Holy Spiritand keep back part of
  • 00:17:37.715 --> 00:17:42.420
  • the price of the landfor yourself?"
  • 00:17:42.520 --> 00:17:44.489
  • Now, this is a truththat we need to catch.
  • 00:17:44.589 --> 00:17:49.627
  • He lied to Peter.
  • 00:17:49.727 --> 00:17:51.195
  • He lied to a person.
  • 00:17:51.295 --> 00:17:53.431
  • And Peter said, "Why hasSatan filled your heart
  • 00:17:53.531 --> 00:17:56.767
  • to lie to the Holy Spirit?"
  • 00:17:56.868 --> 00:18:01.205
  • He didn't say to me,he said to the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:18:01.305 --> 00:18:04.542
  • So, you need tounderstand something.
  • 00:18:04.642 --> 00:18:05.910
  • When you lie to yourself -Ananias and Sapphira did,
  • 00:18:06.010 --> 00:18:08.679
  • they lied to themselves.
  • 00:18:08.779 --> 00:18:09.947
  • When you lie to yourselfand when you lie to others,
  • 00:18:10.047 --> 00:18:12.016
  • you are lying to God.
  • 00:18:12.116 --> 00:18:16.354
  • If you're not walkingin honesty with yourself
  • 00:18:16.454 --> 00:18:18.523
  • and with others around you,you are not walking
  • 00:18:18.623 --> 00:18:20.424
  • in honesty with God.
  • 00:18:20.525 --> 00:18:22.827
  • You're lying, and you'relying to the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:18:22.927 --> 00:18:25.830
  • Notice that he said, youkept something back.
  • 00:18:25.930 --> 00:18:28.766
  • But, you think about this.
  • 00:18:28.866 --> 00:18:30.301
  • You ever walk in a roomand a child has something
  • 00:18:30.401 --> 00:18:33.204
  • he's not supposed to have,and he immediately turns
  • 00:18:33.304 --> 00:18:34.438
  • and faces you, and puts itbehind his back?
  • 00:18:34.539 --> 00:18:36.741
  • Right?
  • 00:18:36.841 --> 00:18:37.975
  • And you say, do you havesomething in your hand?
  • 00:18:38.075 --> 00:18:39.177
  • Nope.
  • 00:18:39.277 --> 00:18:41.946
  • Have you ever beenfooled by that?
  • 00:18:42.046 --> 00:18:44.682
  • Have you ever said, okay?
  • 00:18:44.782 --> 00:18:52.256
  • Do you think thatGod can't see it?
  • 00:18:52.356 --> 00:18:55.359
  • By the way, did you knowthat God is actually
  • 00:18:55.459 --> 00:18:59.096
  • on the other side of you, too?
  • 00:18:59.197 --> 00:19:04.468
  • Looking at what you gotin your hand?
  • 00:19:04.569 --> 00:19:07.939
  • Do you really think,if you don't tell God about it,
  • 00:19:08.039 --> 00:19:11.442
  • He doesn't know?
  • 00:19:11.542 --> 00:19:13.878
  • Do you really think you canstand like this
  • 00:19:13.978 --> 00:19:17.381
  • in the presence of God?
  • 00:19:17.481 --> 00:19:20.418
  • And here's what you needto really understand.
  • 00:19:20.518 --> 00:19:23.321
  • What you have in your hand?
  • 00:19:23.421 --> 00:19:24.388
  • He's already died for it.
  • 00:19:24.488 --> 00:19:30.294
  • He's already paidthe price for it.
  • 00:19:30.394 --> 00:19:32.997
  • He just needs youto bring it out,
  • 00:19:33.097 --> 00:19:35.166
  • so He can help you with it.
  • 00:19:35.266 --> 00:19:37.301
  • Let me show you the best exampleof being honest with God
  • 00:19:37.401 --> 00:19:45.076
  • that I've found in the Bible.
  • 00:19:45.176 --> 00:19:46.877
  • Luke 22:41-42, "And He waswithdrawn from them
  • 00:19:46.978 --> 00:19:50.848
  • about a stone's throw."
  • 00:19:50.948 --> 00:19:52.083
  • This is in the garden beforeHe's going to be crucified.
  • 00:19:52.183 --> 00:19:54.652
  • "And He knelt down and prayed,saying, "Father,
  • 00:19:54.752 --> 00:19:57.221
  • if it is Your will,take this cup away from Me,
  • 00:19:57.321 --> 00:20:01.959
  • nevertheless"...watch this.
  • 00:20:02.059 --> 00:20:03.694
  • You want to see being honest?
  • 00:20:03.794 --> 00:20:05.363
  • "Not My will,but Yours be done."
  • 00:20:05.463 --> 00:20:12.003
  • Matthew tells us He prayedthis prayer three times.
  • 00:20:12.103 --> 00:20:14.438
  • "Not My will,but Yours be done."
  • 00:20:14.538 --> 00:20:20.211
  • He's being honest with God.
  • 00:20:20.311 --> 00:20:21.279
  • He's not sinning,because Jesus never sinned.
  • 00:20:21.379 --> 00:20:24.081
  • He's being honest and saying,if there's any other way,
  • 00:20:24.181 --> 00:20:26.217
  • then let thiscup pass from Me.
  • 00:20:26.317 --> 00:20:30.788
  • And in my opinion, He wasn'ttalking about the nails,
  • 00:20:30.888 --> 00:20:33.357
  • and the thorns,and the scourging.
  • 00:20:33.457 --> 00:20:36.193
  • He was talking about thatHe was going to have to be
  • 00:20:36.294 --> 00:20:38.362
  • separated from God so thatwe could be reunited to God,
  • 00:20:38.462 --> 00:20:42.166
  • and I think He was saying,God, Father, if there's
  • 00:20:42.266 --> 00:20:44.735
  • any other way to redeem themto You than for Me
  • 00:20:44.835 --> 00:20:48.673
  • to have to be separatedfrom You, then please take
  • 00:20:48.773 --> 00:20:51.108
  • this cup away from Me.
  • 00:20:51.208 --> 00:20:54.445
  • But if there's no other way,then I'll die
  • 00:20:54.545 --> 00:20:57.648
  • so that they can live.
  • 00:20:57.748 --> 00:20:59.884
  • But, He was being honest.
  • 00:20:59.984 --> 00:21:01.619
  • See, the wordwill means desire.
  • 00:21:01.719 --> 00:21:03.954
  • When you do your last will,you're talking about
  • 00:21:04.055 --> 00:21:07.358
  • your desire.
  • 00:21:07.458 --> 00:21:08.759
  • When the Bible saysGod is not willing
  • 00:21:08.859 --> 00:21:12.163
  • that any should perish...in other words,
  • 00:21:12.263 --> 00:21:14.365
  • it's not His desirethat anyone perishes.
  • 00:21:14.465 --> 00:21:16.801
  • So, here's whatHe was saying.
  • 00:21:16.901 --> 00:21:18.069
  • God, this is My desire.
  • 00:21:18.169 --> 00:21:19.570
  • He's being honest.
  • 00:21:19.670 --> 00:21:21.339
  • This is My desire.
  • 00:21:21.439 --> 00:21:22.573
  • If there's any other way,then please show Me now.
  • 00:21:22.673 --> 00:21:27.511
  • Okay, listen to me.
  • 00:21:27.611 --> 00:21:30.147
  • You will never pray truthfully,Your will be done,
  • 00:21:30.247 --> 00:21:34.952
  • until you truthfully pray,not my will.
  • 00:21:35.052 --> 00:21:39.123
  • And you will nevertruthfully pray,
  • 00:21:39.223 --> 00:21:41.625
  • not my will, until you'll admitwhat your desire really is,
  • 00:21:41.726 --> 00:21:46.330
  • and that's whatJesus was doing.
  • 00:21:46.430 --> 00:21:49.533
  • I told you when I was 25that I got honest with Debbie.
  • 00:21:49.633 --> 00:21:53.304
  • She was not the first personthat I got honest with.
  • 00:21:53.404 --> 00:21:55.373
  • I was too afraid to.
  • 00:21:55.473 --> 00:21:58.876
  • About a year before that,and I believe this led
  • 00:21:58.976 --> 00:22:01.379
  • to God bringing abouta work in my life.
  • 00:22:01.479 --> 00:22:04.815
  • About a year before that,I was praying one day
  • 00:22:04.915 --> 00:22:07.051
  • and I said to the Lord,Lord, I feel like two people.
  • 00:22:07.151 --> 00:22:10.121
  • I feel like the public personand a private person.
  • 00:22:10.221 --> 00:22:12.957
  • I feel like everybody likesthis person, but if anyone
  • 00:22:13.057 --> 00:22:15.926
  • really knew what I strugglewith, and what I've done,
  • 00:22:16.026 --> 00:22:21.098
  • and what's in my past,and what I still deal with
  • 00:22:21.198 --> 00:22:24.068
  • to this day...God, if anyonereally knew that,
  • 00:22:24.168 --> 00:22:27.671
  • they wouldn't even comehear me preach.
  • 00:22:27.772 --> 00:22:32.710
  • And the Lord, He said,do you want Me to fix that?
  • 00:22:32.810 --> 00:22:36.447
  • You want Me to fix that?
  • 00:22:36.547 --> 00:22:39.250
  • You feel like two people,you want Me to fix it?
  • 00:22:39.350 --> 00:22:42.620
  • I said, yes, I do.
  • 00:22:42.720 --> 00:22:43.921
  • He said, all right, I wantyou to write down everything
  • 00:22:44.021 --> 00:22:46.290
  • that you've ever done thatno one knows
  • 00:22:46.390 --> 00:22:48.125
  • on a piece of paper, everything.
  • 00:22:48.225 --> 00:22:51.162
  • Everything that you've donethat no one knows,
  • 00:22:51.262 --> 00:22:53.731
  • you write it downon a piece of paper.
  • 00:22:53.831 --> 00:22:55.966
  • And the Lord said,you take that piece of paper
  • 00:22:56.066 --> 00:22:58.335
  • and you read every bit of itto Pastor Olin.
  • 00:22:58.436 --> 00:23:04.475
  • And so, we got alone one timeand I said to him,
  • 00:23:04.575 --> 00:23:06.143
  • I need to tell you some things,and I shared that
  • 00:23:06.243 --> 00:23:09.613
  • piece of paper with him.
  • 00:23:09.713 --> 00:23:12.349
  • I said, this is what peopledon't know about me.
  • 00:23:12.450 --> 00:23:16.887
  • And he said to me, Robert,everything on that piece
  • 00:23:16.987 --> 00:23:20.825
  • of paper, most people havedone things like that.
  • 00:23:20.925 --> 00:23:27.064
  • But, Satan has you convincedthat you're worse
  • 00:23:27.164 --> 00:23:28.332
  • than anyone else, and God justneeded you to bring it out
  • 00:23:28.432 --> 00:23:33.170
  • into the lightso He could deal with it.
  • 00:23:33.270 --> 00:23:36.907
  • And about three days later,I remember, I woke up.
  • 00:23:37.007 --> 00:23:40.010
  • Debbie was still asleep,and I woke up,
  • 00:23:40.110 --> 00:23:41.946
  • and I was just happy.
  • 00:23:42.046 --> 00:23:45.015
  • I mean, I was just happy.
  • 00:23:45.115 --> 00:23:46.784
  • And the Lord said to me,why are you so happy?
  • 00:23:46.884 --> 00:23:49.787
  • I said, don't You get it?
  • 00:23:49.887 --> 00:23:51.121
  • I said, there's one personwho knows everything
  • 00:23:51.222 --> 00:23:57.127
  • bad about me,and he still loves me.
  • 00:23:57.228 --> 00:24:01.932
  • And the Lord said to me,just one?
  • 00:24:02.032 --> 00:24:08.038
  • And I didn't get whatHe was saying.
  • 00:24:08.138 --> 00:24:09.473
  • I said, yes, there's one personwho knows everything bad
  • 00:24:09.573 --> 00:24:13.077
  • that I've ever done,and he still loves me.
  • 00:24:13.177 --> 00:24:15.579
  • And the Lord said, just one?
  • 00:24:15.679 --> 00:24:19.583
  • Are you sure there's onlyone person that knows
  • 00:24:19.683 --> 00:24:21.018
  • everything bad you've ever doneand still loves you?
  • 00:24:21.118 --> 00:24:24.054
  • And He said to me, not onlydo I know everything
  • 00:24:24.154 --> 00:24:26.724
  • that was on the piece of paper,I know everything that wasn't
  • 00:24:26.824 --> 00:24:28.959
  • on the paper, son,and not only do I love you,
  • 00:24:29.059 --> 00:24:30.961
  • I died for you.
  • 00:24:31.061 --> 00:24:33.397
  • I died for you, son.
  • 00:24:33.497 --> 00:24:35.432
  • I died for you.[Applause]
  • 00:24:35.533 --> 00:24:40.137
  • I'm telling you, there's someonewho knows everything
  • 00:24:40.237 --> 00:24:42.239
  • you've ever done,and He still loves you
  • 00:24:42.339 --> 00:24:45.276
  • and He wants you to walkin freedom,
  • 00:24:45.376 --> 00:24:48.279
  • but you're going tohave to get honest.
  • 00:24:48.379 --> 00:24:50.681
  • You're going to have to behonest with yourself,
  • 00:24:50.781 --> 00:24:52.016
  • you're going to have to behonest with others,
  • 00:24:52.116 --> 00:24:53.350
  • and you're going to have tobe honest with God.
  • 00:24:53.450 --> 00:24:55.052
  • PASTOR ROBERT: When I think backto that moment
  • 00:24:55.886 --> 00:24:58.689
  • that the Lord said, I knoweverything about you,
  • 00:24:58.789 --> 00:25:02.893
  • and not only do I love you,
  • 00:25:02.993 --> 00:25:04.628
  • I died for you, I want youto know that the Lord knows
  • 00:25:04.728 --> 00:25:09.233
  • everything thatyou've ever done wrong,
  • 00:25:09.333 --> 00:25:12.469
  • and He still loves you.
  • 00:25:12.570 --> 00:25:14.838
  • He died for you.
  • 00:25:14.939 --> 00:25:16.073
  • He's not holding itagainst you.
  • 00:25:16.173 --> 00:25:17.908
  • He's never going tobring it up again.
  • 00:25:18.008 --> 00:25:21.312
  • It's coveredunder the blood of Jesus.
  • 00:25:21.412 --> 00:25:24.214
  • But for us to walkin the type of relationship
  • 00:25:24.315 --> 00:25:27.017
  • that He wants us to walk in,we've got to begin
  • 00:25:27.117 --> 00:25:30.521
  • to be honest with Him,honest with others,
  • 00:25:30.621 --> 00:25:33.991
  • and honest with ourselves.
  • 00:25:34.091 --> 00:25:38.395
