  • - Jesus says, do whatyou can for the person
  • 00:00:00.984 --> 00:00:03.520
  • who's right in front of you.
  • 00:00:03.520 --> 00:00:04.621
  • If you see them,don't ignore them.
  • 00:00:04.621 --> 00:00:06.222
  • We've got to learn tosee with eyes of love.
  • 00:00:06.523 --> 00:00:08.425
  • Some of us, our eyes havebeen conditioned with
  • 00:00:08.425 --> 00:00:11.461
  • the wrong vision.
  • 00:00:11.461 --> 00:00:12.929
  • We're seeing peoplethrough the lens of
  • 00:00:12.929 --> 00:00:15.031
  • what we've heardfrom other people.
  • 00:00:15.031 --> 00:00:18.068
  • What we've heard, maybe evenfrom parents, grandparents,
  • 00:00:18.068 --> 00:00:20.737
  • uncles, aunts, friends.
  • 00:00:20.737 --> 00:00:22.539
  • I'm Paul.
  • 00:00:23.706 --> 00:00:24.707
  • You're here on purpose.
  • 00:00:24.707 --> 00:00:26.476
  • God's not finished with you yet.
  • 00:00:26.476 --> 00:00:28.812
  • Your best days areright in front of you.
  • 00:00:28.812 --> 00:00:31.448
  • And you haveVictory in your life
  • 00:00:31.448 --> 00:00:33.716
  • because Jesus lives in you.
  • 00:00:33.716 --> 00:00:36.219
  • (applause)
  • 00:00:36.219 --> 00:00:37.720
  • When you get the rightlens for your eyes,
  • 00:00:37.720 --> 00:00:40.590
  • you're able to see clearly.
  • 00:00:40.590 --> 00:00:43.059
  • And I just wonder,as some of us,
  • 00:00:43.059 --> 00:00:44.494
  • we've got some blurryvision with people, groups,
  • 00:00:44.494 --> 00:00:47.297
  • with women, with men,with this ethnic group,
  • 00:00:47.297 --> 00:00:50.467
  • with this person, with Jewishpeople, with Arab people,
  • 00:00:50.867 --> 00:00:56.106
  • with immigrant, whatever thesituation is, God says, no, no.
  • 00:00:56.106 --> 00:01:00.410
  • I want you to see them theway you see your mother,
  • 00:01:00.410 --> 00:01:03.379
  • your father, your children.
  • 00:01:03.379 --> 00:01:04.647
  • I want you to seethem the way you see,
  • 00:01:04.647 --> 00:01:07.050
  • I want you to see them.
  • 00:01:07.050 --> 00:01:08.384
  • And some of us have blurryvision towards ourself.
  • 00:01:08.384 --> 00:01:10.687
  • It's hard for us tolove our neighbor
  • 00:01:10.687 --> 00:01:11.921
  • because we don'teven love ourself.
  • 00:01:11.921 --> 00:01:13.923
  • Some of you justcarrying self hatred.
  • 00:01:13.923 --> 00:01:15.992
  • You don't like the way you look.
  • 00:01:15.992 --> 00:01:16.993
  • You wish you were skinnier.
  • 00:01:16.993 --> 00:01:18.194
  • You wish you were bigger.
  • 00:01:18.194 --> 00:01:19.295
  • You wish you had tanner skin.
  • 00:01:19.295 --> 00:01:21.297
  • You wish you had adifferent type of skin.
  • 00:01:21.297 --> 00:01:23.900
  • You wish you had their hair,or you wish, I don't know.
  • 00:01:23.900 --> 00:01:28.037
  • Some of us just have a selfhatred, a self-loathing spirit.
  • 00:01:28.037 --> 00:01:31.741
  • You can't love your neighbor
  • 00:01:31.741 --> 00:01:32.842
  • until you get healedto love yourself.
  • 00:01:32.909 --> 00:01:35.478
  • While I was on the phonewith this group of pastors,
  • 00:01:35.478 --> 00:01:37.747
  • one of them said,"Paul, you keep saying,
  • 00:01:37.747 --> 00:01:39.649
  • Lord heal our land.
  • 00:01:39.649 --> 00:01:40.750
  • But your ethnicity hasnot experienced the hurt
  • 00:01:42.385 --> 00:01:45.889
  • over the last 400 yearsthat my ethnicity has.
  • 00:01:46.222 --> 00:01:49.692
  • So should you say Lordheal these people groups
  • 00:01:49.692 --> 00:01:52.762
  • that have experiencedthe most hurt and pain?"
  • 00:01:52.762 --> 00:01:54.764
  • And he said, "I'mhealed, but I'm saying,
  • 00:01:55.732 --> 00:01:57.333
  • I'm speaking on behalf of peoplethat are hurting right now
  • 00:01:57.333 --> 00:01:59.636
  • in the streets, and in ourchurch that speak to me
  • 00:01:59.636 --> 00:02:02.138
  • on matters of hurt fromracial discrimination."
  • 00:02:02.138 --> 00:02:05.575
  • And I said, "Yeah,that makes sense."
  • 00:02:06.609 --> 00:02:08.444
  • But I said, "I dobelieve that God wants
  • 00:02:08.444 --> 00:02:10.246
  • to heal all people."
  • 00:02:10.246 --> 00:02:11.514
  • And I said, "What ifthe healing in someone
  • 00:02:12.882 --> 00:02:17.654
  • from an ethnicity that has notbeen discriminated against?
  • 00:02:17.654 --> 00:02:20.190
  • What if the healing thatneeds to happen to them
  • 00:02:20.190 --> 00:02:22.225
  • is not a healing fromwounds they've incurred,
  • 00:02:22.225 --> 00:02:25.261
  • what if it's a healing frommindsets they've grown up with?
  • 00:02:25.261 --> 00:02:28.998
  • What if it's ahealing of the mind?
  • 00:02:28.998 --> 00:02:31.000
  • What if it's a healingfrom racial prejudice
  • 00:02:31.000 --> 00:02:33.770
  • that was passed down to themfrom generation to generation?
  • 00:02:33.770 --> 00:02:37.073
  • What if they need to behealed from the hatred
  • 00:02:37.073 --> 00:02:39.576
  • that's inside them?"
  • 00:02:39.576 --> 00:02:40.677
  • And he said, "Wow."
  • 00:02:40.677 --> 00:02:41.978
  • And he was teachingme so many things.
  • 00:02:41.978 --> 00:02:43.379
  • He said, "You justtaught me something
  • 00:02:43.379 --> 00:02:46.249
  • I've never thought about.
  • 00:02:46.249 --> 00:02:47.517
  • That even the perpetratorneeds healing.
  • 00:02:49.319 --> 00:02:52.222
  • Even the guy whocommitted a crime,
  • 00:02:52.222 --> 00:02:54.190
  • even the brutality thathappened, that was unnecessary.
  • 00:02:54.190 --> 00:02:58.161
  • Even that person who didthat, he needs healing.
  • 00:02:58.161 --> 00:03:01.931
  • She needs healing becausesomething's not right.
  • 00:03:03.366 --> 00:03:07.604
  • The way that they'reseeing people,
  • 00:03:07.604 --> 00:03:09.806
  • certain people,through a lens of fear,
  • 00:03:09.806 --> 00:03:12.041
  • through a lens ofI'm gonna hurt you
  • 00:03:12.041 --> 00:03:15.011
  • before you even try to hurt me.
  • 00:03:15.211 --> 00:03:16.546
  • Because I thinkyou're gonna hurt me.
  • 00:03:16.546 --> 00:03:18.281
  • There's a healing that needsto happen here and here,
  • 00:03:18.281 --> 00:03:21.684
  • that only the HolySpirit can bring.
  • 00:03:21.684 --> 00:03:23.186
  • So number one, we've got tolearn to see with eyes of love.
  • 00:03:23.186 --> 00:03:25.188
  • Number two, we've got to learnto listen with ears of love.
  • 00:03:25.488 --> 00:03:28.558
  • Jesus listened tothe Samaritan woman.
  • 00:03:28.558 --> 00:03:33.396
  • Jesus listened tothose who were hurting.
  • 00:03:33.396 --> 00:03:36.532
  • Jesus listened to those
  • 00:03:37.066 --> 00:03:39.135
  • who were caught indestructive behaviors.
  • 00:03:39.135 --> 00:03:42.171
  • Jesus would listen andthen he would respond.
  • 00:03:42.171 --> 00:03:44.674
  • He would listen to peopleand then he would comfort.
  • 00:03:44.674 --> 00:03:46.676
  • He would listen to them tobetter understand the need.
  • 00:03:46.676 --> 00:03:49.312
  • He would say, "I hear thatyou're crying out for help,
  • 00:03:49.312 --> 00:03:51.347
  • but what can I do for you?"
  • 00:03:51.347 --> 00:03:52.548
  • "I'm blind, I can't see."
  • 00:03:52.548 --> 00:03:53.983
  • Okay, now Jesus is askingquestions to understand
  • 00:03:53.983 --> 00:03:57.687
  • what is the diagnosis.
  • 00:03:57.687 --> 00:03:58.688
  • "I've been hurt.
  • 00:03:58.688 --> 00:03:59.822
  • I'm here in the dust becauseof a crime I committed."
  • 00:03:59.822 --> 00:04:03.626
  • And Jesus gets downin the dust and says,
  • 00:04:03.626 --> 00:04:05.194
  • "Who of you with no sincast the first stone."
  • 00:04:05.194 --> 00:04:07.764
  • So Jesus would listen andthen he would respond.
  • 00:04:07.764 --> 00:04:10.266
  • God gave us two ears,-[Congregation] One mouth.
  • 00:04:10.266 --> 00:04:13.236
  • - one mouth so that wecould listen more than we
  • 00:04:13.236 --> 00:04:16.072
  • -[Congregation] Talk.- Talk
  • 00:04:16.072 --> 00:04:17.774
  • Number three, and I wantthe cues to come out.
  • 00:04:17.907 --> 00:04:20.176
  • Feel with a heart of love.
  • 00:04:20.176 --> 00:04:22.612
  • God wants us to feel it.
  • 00:04:22.612 --> 00:04:24.080
  • He wants us to feel it.
  • 00:04:25.581 --> 00:04:27.350
  • There was a cosmetic company...
  • 00:04:27.350 --> 00:04:29.352
  • that...a very famouscosmetic company that
  • 00:04:30.453 --> 00:04:32.455
  • did a contestseveral years back,
  • 00:04:32.488 --> 00:04:34.490
  • where they asked their customers
  • 00:04:34.490 --> 00:04:36.826
  • and anyone to submit a pictureof the most beautiful woman
  • 00:04:36.826 --> 00:04:40.963
  • they've ever seen.
  • 00:04:40.963 --> 00:04:41.864
  • The company would pickthe top 100 pictures
  • 00:04:42.965 --> 00:04:46.936
  • and then they would voteon the top 10 pictures
  • 00:04:46.936 --> 00:04:49.305
  • of the most beautiful woman.
  • 00:04:49.305 --> 00:04:51.107
  • And then they would have a vote
  • 00:04:51.107 --> 00:04:52.542
  • for the number one mostbeautiful woman in the world.
  • 00:04:52.542 --> 00:04:54.544
  • Thousands of letters withpictures were sent in
  • 00:04:55.378 --> 00:04:58.948
  • and the company notonly wanted a picture,
  • 00:04:58.948 --> 00:05:01.918
  • they wanted a letterdescribing who this person was.
  • 00:05:01.918 --> 00:05:05.588
  • Who this person was.
  • 00:05:05.588 --> 00:05:06.556
  • There was one picturethat came with a letter
  • 00:05:07.957 --> 00:05:09.659
  • that shocked the whole company,
  • 00:05:09.659 --> 00:05:10.893
  • went all the way to the top,
  • 00:05:10.893 --> 00:05:12.495
  • and the CEO was taken backwhen they read the letter
  • 00:05:12.495 --> 00:05:15.998
  • and saw the picture.
  • 00:05:15.998 --> 00:05:16.999
  • It came from a little boy
  • 00:05:16.999 --> 00:05:18.968
  • and he wrote this letterattaching a photo.
  • 00:05:18.968 --> 00:05:23.806
  • He said, "I comefrom a broken home.
  • 00:05:24.841 --> 00:05:26.743
  • I live with my dad,my mom is in prison.
  • 00:05:27.577 --> 00:05:29.912
  • I'm oftentimes very lonely.
  • 00:05:31.247 --> 00:05:33.483
  • I'm having issues atschool with classmates
  • 00:05:33.483 --> 00:05:37.253
  • and with teachers and coaches.
  • 00:05:37.253 --> 00:05:39.055
  • I live in a rundownpart of town.
  • 00:05:39.689 --> 00:05:41.557
  • But there's one brightspot in my life.
  • 00:05:45.161 --> 00:05:47.463
  • She is the most beautifulwoman in the world to me.
  • 00:05:49.565 --> 00:05:52.168
  • This beautiful woman, shelives down the street from me.
  • 00:05:55.171 --> 00:05:58.141
  • We meet up every single day
  • 00:05:59.142 --> 00:06:01.411
  • and she makes me feel like
  • 00:06:02.345 --> 00:06:03.613
  • I'm the most importantperson in the world.
  • 00:06:03.613 --> 00:06:05.715
  • She plays games with me.
  • 00:06:06.849 --> 00:06:08.317
  • She talks with me aboutanything and everything.
  • 00:06:09.051 --> 00:06:11.521
  • She interacts with meand understands me.
  • 00:06:12.522 --> 00:06:14.891
  • She listens to my problems.
  • 00:06:15.858 --> 00:06:18.761
  • When I leave her house,she yells out to me,
  • 00:06:18.761 --> 00:06:21.931
  • 'I'm proud of you.
  • 00:06:21.931 --> 00:06:23.099
  • I'm proud of you.'"
  • 00:06:23.966 --> 00:06:26.135
  • So enclosed with this letterwas a picture of the lady
  • 00:06:26.135 --> 00:06:31.040
  • and she had no teeth.
  • 00:06:32.175 --> 00:06:33.576
  • She was smiling,but had no teeth.
  • 00:06:35.077 --> 00:06:37.713
  • She was well-advanced in years.
  • 00:06:38.381 --> 00:06:41.284
  • She had gray hair,
  • 00:06:43.286 --> 00:06:44.887
  • but she was losing hairin spots of her head,
  • 00:06:44.887 --> 00:06:47.123
  • wrinkles all over her face.
  • 00:06:47.990 --> 00:06:49.559
  • Not the body type of alot of the other pictures
  • 00:06:50.526 --> 00:06:53.996
  • that were sent in,
  • 00:06:53.996 --> 00:06:55.598
  • but she had a gorgeoustwinkle in her eyes.
  • 00:06:55.598 --> 00:06:58.601
  • The president of thecosmetic company said,
  • 00:06:58.601 --> 00:07:01.370
  • "We can't use this entry.
  • 00:07:01.370 --> 00:07:03.406
  • We can't use this entry.
  • 00:07:03.406 --> 00:07:05.007
  • It would show the world that
  • 00:07:07.043 --> 00:07:08.911
  • our products aren'tnecessary to be beautiful."
  • 00:07:08.911 --> 00:07:12.014
  • They went ahead andshowed the entry,
  • 00:07:14.250 --> 00:07:16.118
  • reminding people thatbeauty has nothing to do
  • 00:07:17.186 --> 00:07:20.056
  • with outer looks.
  • 00:07:20.056 --> 00:07:22.825
  • - You can be the mostattractive person in the room,
  • 00:07:22.825 --> 00:07:25.027
  • but when you carry anugly spirit on the inside
  • 00:07:25.027 --> 00:07:27.563
  • towards your people,towards God's children,
  • 00:07:27.563 --> 00:07:30.633
  • it just cancels theattractiveness on the outside.
  • 00:07:30.633 --> 00:07:34.804
  • It's that inner beauty of theheart that says, "I see you.
  • 00:07:34.804 --> 00:07:38.474
  • I love you.
  • 00:07:38.474 --> 00:07:39.775
  • I'm here for you."
  • 00:07:39.775 --> 00:07:40.810
  • The most beautiful peoplein the world are the people
  • 00:07:41.777 --> 00:07:44.447
  • who carry a heart likeJesus; gentleness, humility,
  • 00:07:44.447 --> 00:07:48.618
  • kindness.
  • 00:07:48.618 --> 00:07:49.585
  • They feel your hurt.
  • 00:07:49.585 --> 00:07:52.188
  • They feel what you'rewalking through.
  • 00:07:52.455 --> 00:07:55.491
  • God wants us to feel what otherpeople have walked through,
  • 00:07:55.491 --> 00:07:58.828
  • what they've experienced.
  • 00:07:58.828 --> 00:08:00.796
  • You don't know what it'slike until you walk a day
  • 00:08:00.796 --> 00:08:02.565
  • in their shoes.

  • So this week, Ashley and I,we were talking,

  • What can we do?What can we do?
  • 00:08:19.115 --> 00:08:20.750
  • Let's go outside together.
  • 00:08:20.750 --> 00:08:22.585
  • And let's just doa prayer walk."
  • 00:08:22.585 --> 00:08:24.854
  • I remember reading a bookcalled "The Circle Maker."
  • 00:08:24.854 --> 00:08:27.089
  • And in this book, there's thismoment where he talks about
  • 00:08:27.089 --> 00:08:29.425
  • how he walked this circlearound Washington DC,
  • 00:08:29.425 --> 00:08:32.728
  • this author of the book.
  • 00:08:32.762 --> 00:08:34.363
  • And everywhere he walked,he prayed for Washington DC
  • 00:08:34.363 --> 00:08:39.035
  • and he prayed thatGod would give him
  • 00:08:39.035 --> 00:08:40.903
  • a heart for thepeople in that area.
  • 00:08:40.903 --> 00:08:42.872
  • And he prayed that Godwould give him territory.
  • 00:08:42.872 --> 00:08:45.207
  • By the way, what's goingon in our nation right now,
  • 00:08:45.341 --> 00:08:47.510
  • it is a war.
  • 00:08:47.510 --> 00:08:48.477
  • It is a spiritualbattle for territory.
  • 00:08:48.477 --> 00:08:51.080
  • The enemy wants to take theUnited States of America.
  • 00:08:51.080 --> 00:08:54.750
  • The enemy wantsto divide people.
  • 00:08:54.750 --> 00:08:57.186
  • The enemy not onlywants to take the US,
  • 00:08:57.186 --> 00:08:59.121
  • the enemy wants totake the whole world.
  • 00:08:59.121 --> 00:09:00.890
  • The enemy wants the wholeworld to rise up in hatred
  • 00:09:00.890 --> 00:09:04.193
  • and in fights andquarreling and divisiveness,
  • 00:09:04.193 --> 00:09:06.862
  • but love conquers hate.
  • 00:09:06.862 --> 00:09:08.864
  • And when we get connectedto the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:09:08.864 --> 00:09:11.233
  • Ephesians 6 says, you arenot in a fight with flesh
  • 00:09:11.434 --> 00:09:14.804
  • and blood.
  • 00:09:14.804 --> 00:09:15.404
  • You are in a fightwith principalities
  • 00:09:15.705 --> 00:09:17.139
  • and powers of this dark world.
  • 00:09:17.139 --> 00:09:19.241
  • Make no mistake,racism is demonic.
  • 00:09:19.241 --> 00:09:22.078
  • Violence and murder is demonic.
  • 00:09:22.211 --> 00:09:24.246
  • Revenge is demonic.
  • 00:09:24.246 --> 00:09:25.948

  • There is no inchof love in satan.
  • 00:09:30.686 --> 00:09:33.422
  • There is no love in any demon,but love comes from God.
  • 00:09:33.422 --> 00:09:36.859
  • God is love.
  • 00:09:36.859 --> 00:09:37.827
  • When we're operating in love,
  • 00:09:37.827 --> 00:09:39.228
  • we are carrying a divine weapon
  • 00:09:39.228 --> 00:09:40.763
  • against the demonicweapon of hatred.
  • 00:09:40.763 --> 00:09:44.000
  • Be an advocate this week,that you're going to show love
  • 00:09:44.000 --> 00:09:48.104

  • Thank you forstaying at Victory.
  • 00:23:56.485 --> 00:23:58.787
  • Our world is full of somuch hurt and hate and pain.
  • 00:24:00.288 --> 00:24:04.459
  • And the only way that we'regoing to cure the darkness
  • 00:24:04.459 --> 00:24:07.496
  • is not by reactingwith more darkness,
  • 00:24:07.496 --> 00:24:10.165
  • but by responding with love.
  • 00:24:10.165 --> 00:24:12.467
  • God wants to heal our nation.
  • 00:24:12.467 --> 00:24:14.870
  • He wants to heal our world.
  • 00:24:14.870 --> 00:24:16.771
  • He wants to heal the racialbarriers that have destroyed
  • 00:24:16.771 --> 00:24:20.041
  • so many generations becauseof hatred and prejudice
  • 00:24:20.041 --> 00:24:23.945
  • and just people notrespecting one another.
  • 00:24:23.945 --> 00:24:27.249
  • But the only way that Godcan bring that healing
  • 00:24:27.249 --> 00:24:29.718
  • is when you and Iopen our hearts to him
  • 00:24:29.718 --> 00:24:32.254
  • and say, "Lord, wherethere's hatred plant love.
  • 00:24:32.254 --> 00:24:35.156
  • Where there isanxiety, bring peace.
  • 00:24:35.156 --> 00:24:37.492
  • Lord, where there'sunforgiveness,
  • 00:24:37.492 --> 00:24:39.528
  • help me to have mercy
  • 00:24:39.528 --> 00:24:40.729
  • for those who have offended me."
  • 00:24:40.729 --> 00:24:42.531
  • You see the cycleof darkness stops
  • 00:24:42.531 --> 00:24:45.000
  • when we open our hearts upto the love of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:24:45.000 --> 00:24:49.070
  • Just like you saw inthe message today,
  • 00:24:49.070 --> 00:24:51.206
  • God wants to bringhealing through you.
  • 00:24:51.206 --> 00:24:53.341
  • He wants to use you tobe the good Samaritan,
  • 00:24:53.341 --> 00:24:55.544
  • to love those people thatare right beside you,
  • 00:24:55.544 --> 00:24:57.812
  • to treat people withhonor dignity and respect.
  • 00:24:57.812 --> 00:25:00.849
  • I believe we can change ournation, one person at a time,
