  • 00:00:07.290 --> 00:00:15.932
  • Kerry: While many people todayare overflowing with stress,
  • 00:00:32.015 --> 00:00:37.253
  • overflowing with anxiety,overflowing with fear, God wants
  • 00:00:37.287 --> 00:00:40.657
  • to overflow us with peace.
  • 00:00:40.690 --> 00:00:43.326
  • God wants his children tobe overflowing with joy.
  • 00:00:43.359 --> 00:00:45.962
  • He wants his children to beoverflowing with strength,
  • 00:00:45.995 --> 00:00:48.598
  • overflowing with compassion, andoverflowing with love for people
  • 00:00:48.631 --> 00:00:54.104
  • that we don't even know.
  • 00:00:54.137 --> 00:00:55.972
  • That's what God wants.
  • 00:00:56.005 --> 00:00:57.307
  • He wants to fill us so full thatwe're overflowing, and it just
  • 00:00:57.340 --> 00:00:59.275
  • splashes on everyone aroundus, and it changes our city.
  • 00:00:59.309 --> 00:01:04.147
  • And so God wants us to cooperatewith his overflow process.
  • 00:01:04.180 --> 00:01:10.453
  • So how do you really startan overflow like that?
  • 00:01:10.487 --> 00:01:16.226
  • Well, the way we start anoverflow is found in one of
  • 00:01:16.259 --> 00:01:18.228
  • Jesus' most famous miracles.
  • 00:01:18.261 --> 00:01:20.797
  • It's the miracle of thefeeding of the 5.000.
  • 00:01:20.830 --> 00:01:24.434
  • And it's mentionedin all four gospels.
  • 00:01:24.467 --> 00:01:26.669
  • There's only two miraclesmentioned in all four gospels,
  • 00:01:26.703 --> 00:01:29.639
  • so it's like God's saying,"This one's an important one.
  • 00:01:29.672 --> 00:01:31.374
  • This is a big one.
  • 00:01:31.407 --> 00:01:32.909
  • I want you to get thisand the principles in it."
  • 00:01:32.942 --> 00:01:35.345
  • And so we see that, in thismiracle, the people were
  • 00:01:35.378 --> 00:01:40.049
  • following Jesus, and theyfollowed him to a remote place
  • 00:01:40.083 --> 00:01:44.287
  • where Jesus had been teachingall day long because the people
  • 00:01:44.320 --> 00:01:47.423
  • were mesmerized by his teaching.
  • 00:01:47.457 --> 00:01:49.325
  • He gave them such hope, and hiswords had such power, and so
  • 00:01:49.359 --> 00:01:53.263
  • they just listened tohim teach all day long.
  • 00:01:53.296 --> 00:01:57.333
  • And the Scripture says therewere 5.000 men, which means
  • 00:01:57.367 --> 00:01:59.569
  • there were probably 15- to20.000 people altogether because
  • 00:01:59.602 --> 00:02:02.839
  • the women and children--theydidn't even count the women
  • 00:02:02.872 --> 00:02:04.607
  • and children.
  • 00:02:04.641 --> 00:02:06.976
  • So there are about 20.000 peoplearound Jesus in this remote
  • 00:02:07.010 --> 00:02:10.013
  • place, and it wasbeginning to get dark.
  • 00:02:10.046 --> 00:02:13.816
  • And the disciples came up toJesus, and they said, "Hey,
  • 00:02:13.850 --> 00:02:16.586
  • Jesus, people are hungry.
  • 00:02:16.619 --> 00:02:19.155
  • We need to send them awaybecause we've got no way to
  • 00:02:19.189 --> 00:02:22.292
  • feed them.
  • 00:02:22.325 --> 00:02:23.693
  • We're in a remote place.
  • 00:02:23.726 --> 00:02:25.395
  • There's no restaurants around,and these people didn't bring
  • 00:02:25.428 --> 00:02:28.331
  • any food.
  • 00:02:28.364 --> 00:02:30.466
  • They didn't know they'dbe here this long.
  • 00:02:30.500 --> 00:02:32.335
  • They were just amazed at yourteaching, and they stayed.
  • 00:02:32.368 --> 00:02:34.704
  • So we need to send them away."
  • 00:02:34.737 --> 00:02:37.473
  • But I want you to seewhat Jesus says to them
  • 00:02:37.507 --> 00:02:40.109
  • in Mark 6, verse 37.
  • 00:02:40.143 --> 00:02:42.979
  • "Jesus answered, 'You givethem something to eat.'
  • 00:02:43.012 --> 00:02:48.017
  • They said to him, 'That would beeight months of a man's wages.
  • 00:02:48.051 --> 00:02:51.554
  • Are we to go and spend that muchon bread and give it to them
  • 00:02:51.588 --> 00:02:54.224
  • to eat?'
  • 00:02:54.257 --> 00:02:56.059
  • 'How many loaves do you have?'he asked.
  • 00:02:56.092 --> 00:02:58.461
  • 'Go and see.'
  • 00:02:58.494 --> 00:03:00.597
  • When they found out, theysaid, 'Five, and two fish.'
  • 00:03:00.630 --> 00:03:03.533
  • Then Jesus directed them tohave all the people sit down in
  • 00:03:03.566 --> 00:03:05.902
  • groups on the green grass.
  • 00:03:05.935 --> 00:03:07.670
  • So they sat down in groupsof hundreds and fifties.
  • 00:03:07.704 --> 00:03:10.240
  • Taking the five loaves andthe two fish and looking up to
  • 00:03:10.273 --> 00:03:12.442
  • heaven, he gave thanksand broke the loaves.
  • 00:03:12.475 --> 00:03:15.979
  • Then he gave them to hisdisciples to set before
  • 00:03:16.012 --> 00:03:18.047
  • the people.
  • 00:03:18.081 --> 00:03:19.849
  • He also divided the twofish among them all.
  • 00:03:19.882 --> 00:03:22.352
  • They all ate and were satisfied,and the disciples picked up 12
  • 00:03:22.385 --> 00:03:24.787
  • basketfuls of brokenpieces of bread and fish.
  • 00:03:24.821 --> 00:03:28.491
  • The number of men whohad eaten was 5.000."
  • 00:03:28.524 --> 00:03:32.729
  • When the disciples came up toJesus and said, "People are
  • 00:03:32.762 --> 00:03:35.965
  • hungry, we need to send themaway," what were they
  • 00:03:35.999 --> 00:03:38.868
  • really saying?
  • 00:03:38.901 --> 00:03:40.436
  • They were saying,"It's not our problem.
  • 00:03:40.470 --> 00:03:43.773
  • It's not our problem thatwe're in a remote place.
  • 00:03:43.806 --> 00:03:47.510
  • It's not our problem that theydidn't pack a lunch and dinner.
  • 00:03:47.543 --> 00:03:52.148
  • It's not our problem that theystayed because you're such an
  • 00:03:52.181 --> 00:03:56.219
  • amazing teacher, Jesus.
  • 00:03:56.252 --> 00:03:58.221
  • That's not our problem."
  • 00:03:58.254 --> 00:04:00.890
  • They had a "not our problem"attitude, and I think some of us
  • 00:04:00.923 --> 00:04:04.027
  • look at this surge incoronavirus cases in Houston,
  • 00:04:04.060 --> 00:04:09.299
  • and we have a "notmy problem" attitude.
  • 00:04:09.332 --> 00:04:14.170
  • It's like, you know, I don'tknow anyone close to me that's
  • 00:04:14.203 --> 00:04:16.572
  • really sick."
  • 00:04:16.606 --> 00:04:18.708
  • And it's, you know, "It's notreally my problem that the ICU
  • 00:04:18.741 --> 00:04:24.614
  • beds are runningout in Houston."
  • 00:04:24.647 --> 00:04:28.685
  • Maybe you're a young person, andyou think, "Well, it's not my
  • 00:04:28.718 --> 00:04:31.421
  • problem because everyoneknows that the symptoms for
  • 00:04:31.454 --> 00:04:34.223
  • coronavirus in young people arepretty mild usually, so it's not
  • 00:04:34.257 --> 00:04:38.061
  • my problem.
  • 00:04:38.094 --> 00:04:39.662
  • I'm gonna do what I want to do."
  • 00:04:39.696 --> 00:04:41.964
  • And some of us would say, "Well,it's not my problem that all the
  • 00:04:41.998 --> 00:04:44.133
  • doctors and nurses and medicalprofessionals in our hospitals
  • 00:04:44.167 --> 00:04:47.337
  • are just totally overwhelmed,and they're havin' to send in
  • 00:04:47.370 --> 00:04:49.806
  • doctors and nurses and medicalprofessionals from other areas
  • 00:04:49.839 --> 00:04:53.810
  • of the country to Houstonbecause our medical
  • 00:04:53.843 --> 00:04:57.280
  • professionals are so worn out,working so many double shifts
  • 00:04:57.313 --> 00:05:00.416
  • and trying to take care of theoverflow of COVID patients in
  • 00:05:00.450 --> 00:05:04.620
  • our hospitals, and some ofthem are getting sick and can't
  • 00:05:04.654 --> 00:05:08.324
  • work--and it's not my problem."
  • 00:05:08.358 --> 00:05:11.728
  • You see, a lot of times, wehave a "It's not my
  • 00:05:11.761 --> 00:05:13.529
  • problem" attitude.
  • 00:05:13.563 --> 00:05:16.199
  • But the disciples had thatattitude: "It's not my problem."
  • 00:05:16.232 --> 00:05:21.270
  • But Jesus, he showed them.
  • 00:05:21.304 --> 00:05:25.675
  • He showed them through thismiracle, and he showed them
  • 00:05:25.708 --> 00:05:29.045
  • through serving them for threeyears, the God of universe
  • 00:05:29.078 --> 00:05:32.382
  • serving them.
  • 00:05:32.415 --> 00:05:34.250
  • And he showed them by washingtheir feet right before he went
  • 00:05:34.283 --> 00:05:37.387
  • to the cross, and he showedthem by going to the cross and
  • 00:05:37.420 --> 00:05:39.856
  • sacrificing his life so theycould have heaven and salvation
  • 00:05:39.889 --> 00:05:42.892
  • that they could neverearn or deserve.
  • 00:05:42.925 --> 00:05:47.597
  • He showed them, and hechanged them completely.
  • 00:05:47.630 --> 00:05:51.434
  • Because of his life and hisoverflow, he changed them
  • 00:05:51.467 --> 00:05:54.604
  • completely from a "It's not myproblem" mentality, to "I will
  • 00:05:54.637 --> 00:06:00.309
  • love you with my life.
  • 00:06:00.343 --> 00:06:03.613
  • I will love people with my life.
  • 00:06:03.646 --> 00:06:07.116
  • I will give my life away in lovefor people I don't even know."
  • 00:06:07.150 --> 00:06:10.119
  • That's what thedisciples became.
  • 00:06:10.153 --> 00:06:12.088
  • They went from "It's not myproblem" attitude to "I will
  • 00:06:12.121 --> 00:06:14.023
  • love you with my life" attitude.
  • 00:06:14.056 --> 00:06:16.959
  • God doesn't want you tomiss out on the miracle.
  • 00:06:16.993 --> 00:06:19.195
  • The disciples had said, "Sendthem away," but they didn't
  • 00:06:19.228 --> 00:06:22.198
  • realize, in sending them away,they would've been sending away
  • 00:06:22.231 --> 00:06:25.902
  • the overflow that would'vestarted in their own lives.
  • 00:06:25.935 --> 00:06:30.039
  • You see, they didn't realizethey were about to miss
  • 00:06:30.072 --> 00:06:32.041
  • the miracle.
  • 00:06:32.074 --> 00:06:33.709
  • They almost overlookedthe overflow.
  • 00:06:33.743 --> 00:06:36.112
  • But Jesus, out of his grace,just wouldn't let them.
  • 00:06:36.145 --> 00:06:38.848
  • He placed them right in themiddle of the miracle by letting
  • 00:06:38.881 --> 00:06:41.017
  • them feel the crushing weightthat it was their problem and
  • 00:06:41.050 --> 00:06:45.455
  • not someone else's problem,and they realized they couldn't
  • 00:06:45.488 --> 00:06:47.457
  • handle it, so theyhad to turn to Christ.
  • 00:06:47.490 --> 00:06:51.527
  • But I want you to see threethings that Jesus taught them
  • 00:06:51.561 --> 00:06:53.596
  • that they had to do to cooperatewith Christ so they wouldn't
  • 00:06:53.629 --> 00:06:57.533
  • miss the miracle.
  • 00:06:57.567 --> 00:06:59.202
  • I don't want you tomiss the miracle.
  • 00:06:59.235 --> 00:07:00.670
  • Chris and I are praying for you.
  • 00:07:00.703 --> 00:07:02.004
  • We don't want you to miss themiracle that's in this time
  • 00:07:02.038 --> 00:07:03.806
  • because of all the messthat's in this time.
  • 00:07:03.840 --> 00:07:06.976
  • Many times, because of the mess,we can't see the miracle, but
  • 00:07:07.009 --> 00:07:09.645
  • God wants to work a miracle.
  • 00:07:09.679 --> 00:07:11.681
  • And so he doesn't wantyou to miss the miracle.
  • 00:07:11.714 --> 00:07:14.417
  • And if you're feeling thecrushing weight of a problem,
  • 00:07:14.450 --> 00:07:16.619
  • that just means that Godloves you, and he wants you to
  • 00:07:16.652 --> 00:07:19.322
  • experience a miracle because,until you feel the crushing
  • 00:07:19.355 --> 00:07:21.557
  • weight of something, you can'treally give it over to God.
  • 00:07:21.591 --> 00:07:25.061
  • Sometimes I hear Christians say,"Well, just let go and let God.
  • 00:07:25.094 --> 00:07:28.297
  • Just trust God.
  • 00:07:28.331 --> 00:07:29.866
  • Don't worry.
  • 00:07:29.899 --> 00:07:31.300
  • Just let go and let God."
  • 00:07:31.334 --> 00:07:33.769
  • The problem is many times theyhaven't really felt the burden
  • 00:07:33.803 --> 00:07:36.372
  • and the problem.
  • 00:07:36.405 --> 00:07:39.208
  • I tell our staff team all thetime that I call this "catch
  • 00:07:39.242 --> 00:07:42.011
  • and release."
  • 00:07:42.044 --> 00:07:44.013
  • I said, "Until you catch theproblem, how overwhelming the
  • 00:07:44.046 --> 00:07:46.516
  • problem is in your life, inministry, to meet the needs of
  • 00:07:46.549 --> 00:07:50.820
  • people, to bring one person toChrist, until you realize the
  • 00:07:50.853 --> 00:07:53.756
  • crushing weight of it and feelit, you can't really give it
  • 00:07:53.789 --> 00:07:57.693
  • to God."
  • 00:07:57.727 --> 00:08:00.162
  • You gotta first feelit and realize, "Whoa."
  • 00:08:00.196 --> 00:08:02.932
  • If you just say, "Oh, it's allGod's, it's in God's hands,"
  • 00:08:02.965 --> 00:08:04.867
  • "I don't have to do anythingabout it," then Jesus will look
  • 00:08:04.901 --> 00:08:07.036
  • right back at you, and he'llsay, "No, you feed them.
  • 00:08:07.069 --> 00:08:09.772
  • You feed them, it's your job,it's your job to figure
  • 00:08:09.805 --> 00:08:11.774
  • this out."
  • 00:08:11.807 --> 00:08:14.010
  • When I realize it's my jobto figure it out, and I can't
  • 00:08:14.043 --> 00:08:16.546
  • figure it out, I get on myknees and go, "God, I need you.
  • 00:08:16.579 --> 00:08:18.981
  • I need you."
  • 00:08:19.015 --> 00:08:21.117
  • But until you feel the crushingweight of it, until you catch
  • 00:08:21.150 --> 00:08:23.686
  • the problem and you can't handleit, you can't give it to God.
  • 00:08:23.719 --> 00:08:28.124
  • You catch, and then you release.
  • 00:08:28.157 --> 00:08:29.825
  • You can't releasebefore you catch.
  • 00:08:29.859 --> 00:08:32.295
  • And so the disciples, theyfelt the crushing weight.
  • 00:08:32.328 --> 00:08:36.065
  • Now Jesus said, "You feed them.
  • 00:08:36.098 --> 00:08:39.135
  • You feed them.
  • 00:08:39.168 --> 00:08:40.970
  • It's your job."
  • 00:08:41.003 --> 00:08:43.372
  • And so what didJesus ask them to do?
  • 00:08:43.406 --> 00:08:46.342
  • Well, there are three things.
  • 00:08:46.375 --> 00:08:48.110
  • If we're not gonna overlook anoverflow--he doesn't want you to
  • 00:08:48.144 --> 00:08:50.246
  • overlook an overflow--first,don't overlook the small things.
  • 00:08:50.279 --> 00:08:52.882
  • Don't overlook the small things.

  • don't have.

  • the time he has given you, theresources he has given you.
  • 00:14:11.734 --> 00:14:15.070

  • 00:14:40.829 --> 00:14:42.998
  • broke the loaves.
  • 00:14:43.032 --> 00:14:44.733
  • Then he gave them to thedisciples to set before
  • 00:14:44.767 --> 00:14:46.335
  • the people."
  • 00:14:46.368 --> 00:14:48.103
  • You see, they gave the littlebit they had to Jesus, and he
  • 00:14:48.137 --> 00:14:50.940
  • multiplied it.
  • 00:14:50.973 --> 00:14:52.841
  • If you'll give God what youhave, he will multiply it.
  • 00:14:52.875 --> 00:14:55.544
  • God always starts with what youhad to give you what
  • 00:14:55.577 --> 00:14:57.279
  • you don't have.
  • 00:14:57.313 --> 00:14:58.614
  • And when you give God what youhave, the little bit that you
  • 00:14:58.647 --> 00:15:00.582
  • had to give him the little bitof faith that you have, he can
  • 00:15:00.616 --> 00:15:02.685
  • multiply it.
  • 00:15:02.718 --> 00:15:04.353
  • Give him the little bitof resources you have.
  • 00:15:04.386 --> 00:15:05.854
  • He can multiply it.
  • 00:15:05.888 --> 00:15:07.222
  • Give him the littlebit of time you have.
  • 00:15:07.256 --> 00:15:08.824
  • He can multiply it.
  • 00:15:08.857 --> 00:15:10.626
  • He's the great multiplier.
  • 00:15:10.659 --> 00:15:12.528
  • And so he blessed the loaves,and he broke them before he
  • 00:15:12.561 --> 00:15:14.897
  • passed them to the disciples,and the miracle happens.
  • 00:15:14.930 --> 00:15:18.100
  • So he had to break the loavesbefore the miracle happened.
  • 00:15:18.133 --> 00:15:22.371
  • And before God can really useus, often he has to allow us to
  • 00:15:22.404 --> 00:15:25.674
  • be broken, to come to a place ofbrokenness before he can really
  • 00:15:25.708 --> 00:15:29.945
  • use us and fillus to overflowing.
  • 00:15:29.979 --> 00:15:33.115
  • And so if you're at a place ofbrokenness right now, maybe you
  • 00:15:33.148 --> 00:15:35.351
  • have a broken heart, or maybeit's a broken dream, or maybe
  • 00:15:35.384 --> 00:15:39.521
  • it's a brokenbusiness or finances.
  • 00:15:39.555 --> 00:15:43.993
  • You feel broke.
  • 00:15:44.026 --> 00:15:46.228
  • Maybe it's a broken relationshipor a broken marriage and, just,
  • 00:15:46.261 --> 00:15:50.466
  • broken emotions.
  • 00:15:50.499 --> 00:15:52.901
  • Maybe you feel totallybroken right now.
  • 00:15:52.935 --> 00:15:56.005
  • The place of brokenness is thesource of the river that brings

  • 00:16:13.922 --> 00:16:16.125
  • a good place though it doesn'tfeel like it, and God is about
  • 00:16:16.158 --> 00:16:18.827
  • to do somethin' in your lifethat's gonna bring an overflow
  • 00:16:18.861 --> 00:16:21.230
  • and splash around oneveryone around you.
  • 00:16:21.263 --> 00:16:25.267
  • That's what God wants.
  • 00:16:25.300 --> 00:16:27.336

  • Don't send away the overflow.
  • 00:16:33.308 --> 00:16:37.646
  • Look to Jesus.

  • When you're at the place ofbrokenness, look to Jesus.
  • 00:16:40.049 --> 00:16:42.785
  • You see, the disciplesneeded bread, but they
  • 00:16:42.818 --> 00:16:46.088
  • overlooked Jesus.
  • 00:16:46.121 --> 00:16:48.524
  • The disciples needed bread, butthey forgot the Bread of Life
  • 00:16:48.557 --> 00:16:51.927
  • was standing right next to them.
  • 00:16:51.960 --> 00:16:54.630
  • The disciples needed bread tofeed the people, and they had

  • 00:17:12.481 --> 00:17:14.883
  • Don't overlook Jesus.
  • 00:17:14.917 --> 00:17:16.819
  • If you overlook Jesus,you overlook the miracle.
  • 00:17:16.852 --> 00:17:18.787
  • Don't take God outof the equation.
  • 00:17:18.821 --> 00:17:21.023
  • Look to Jesus right now.
  • 00:17:21.056 --> 00:17:23.092
  • Look to Jesus.
  • 00:17:23.125 --> 00:17:25.127
  • Look to the Creatorof the universe.
  • 00:17:25.160 --> 00:17:26.962
  • Look to the makerof heaven and earth.
  • 00:17:26.995 --> 00:17:29.064
  • Look to the one who loves you somuch that he cares about every
  • 00:17:29.098 --> 00:17:31.533
  • detail of your life.
  • 00:17:31.567 --> 00:17:33.602
  • Look to Jesus because, if youoverlook Jesus, you overlook
  • 00:17:33.635 --> 00:17:35.537
  • the miracle.
  • 00:17:35.571 --> 00:17:37.906
  • That's why, for Chris and I, ourmain goal during this time is to
  • 00:17:37.940 --> 00:17:41.210
  • help you connect with Jesus.
  • 00:17:41.243 --> 00:17:43.712
  • We don't want youto overlook Jesus.
  • 00:17:43.745 --> 00:17:45.914
  • I don't have all the answersfor all we're goin' through.
  • 00:17:45.948 --> 00:17:48.217
  • I get so confused.
  • 00:17:48.250 --> 00:17:50.185
  • Sometimes I don'tknow what to do next.
  • 00:17:50.219 --> 00:17:52.020
  • I don't have all the answers,and I don't think any human
  • 00:17:52.054 --> 00:17:55.424
  • being does.
  • 00:17:55.457 --> 00:17:57.526
  • But I know theanswer: Jesus Christ.
  • 00:17:57.559 --> 00:18:01.196
  • And if You need a miracle,look to the miracle worker.
  • 00:18:01.230 --> 00:18:03.765
  • I don't have all the answers,but I know the answer:
  • 00:18:03.799 --> 00:18:05.434
  • Jesus Christ.
  • 00:18:05.467 --> 00:18:07.469
  • And I can connect with him everyday, and he will guide me out of
  • 00:18:07.503 --> 00:18:10.873
  • his love and out of his grace.
  • 00:18:10.906 --> 00:18:13.909
  • And so don'toverlook God's part.
  • 00:18:13.942 --> 00:18:18.547
  • I love Ephesians 3:20.
  • 00:18:18.580 --> 00:18:20.716
  • It says, "Now glory to God,who is able, through his mighty
  • 00:18:20.749 --> 00:18:22.518
  • power at work within us, toaccomplish infinitely more than
  • 00:18:22.551 --> 00:18:25.988
  • we might ask or even think."
  • 00:18:26.021 --> 00:18:28.190
  • God wants to do more in yourlife than you could even think
  • 00:18:28.223 --> 00:18:30.159
  • or imagine or ask for.
  • 00:18:30.192 --> 00:18:32.561
  • But then there's a thirdthing: Don't overlook the
  • 00:18:32.594 --> 00:18:34.863
  • next opportunity.
  • 00:18:34.897 --> 00:18:36.899
  • Don't overlook the small things.
  • 00:18:36.932 --> 00:18:38.300
  • Don't overlook God's part,and don't overlook the
  • 00:18:38.333 --> 00:18:39.701
  • next opportunity.
  • 00:18:39.735 --> 00:18:41.770
  • Instead of waiting for a bigopportunity or for when we get
  • 00:18:41.803 --> 00:18:43.672
  • back to normal, don't overlookthat next opportunity in
  • 00:18:43.705 --> 00:18:47.009
  • your life.
  • 00:18:47.042 --> 00:18:49.011
  • Galatians 6:10, says,"Therefore, as we have
  • 00:18:49.044 --> 00:18:50.412
  • opportunity, let us do good toall people, especially to those
  • 00:18:50.445 --> 00:18:53.148
  • who belong to thefamily of believers."
  • 00:18:53.182 --> 00:18:56.084
  • That's what we'redoing, Woodlands Church.
  • 00:18:56.118 --> 00:18:58.854
  • We're just lovin' people.
  • 00:18:58.887 --> 00:19:00.956
  • In Romans 5:15, it says, "For ifthe many died by the trespass of
  • 00:19:00.989 --> 00:19:04.560
  • the one man, how much more didGod's grace and the gift that
  • 00:19:04.593 --> 00:19:07.763
  • came by the grace of the oneman, Jesus Christ, overflow to
  • 00:19:07.796 --> 00:19:12.234
  • the many?"
  • 00:19:12.267 --> 00:19:14.570
  • You see, it's saying here thatone man, Adam, the first man,
  • 00:19:14.603 --> 00:19:16.805
  • sinned and brought the sicknessof sin into the world, and that
  • 00:19:16.838 --> 00:19:19.708
  • sickness has spread.
  • 00:19:19.741 --> 00:19:22.311
  • It's a pandemic of sin that'stouched every one of us.
  • 00:19:22.344 --> 00:19:26.148
  • But then one man, Jesus Christ,he came, and he died, and he
  • 00:19:26.181 --> 00:19:29.451
  • gave his life as the antidote,as the cure for the sickness of
  • 00:19:29.484 --> 00:19:34.656
  • our sins, and that grace ofthe one man, the God-man, Jesus
  • 00:19:34.690 --> 00:19:39.494
  • Christ, overflows.
  • 00:19:39.528 --> 00:19:42.631
  • The blood of Christ overflowsand cleanses us from every sin.
  • 00:19:42.664 --> 00:19:47.302
  • So grateful for theoverflow of grace.
  • 00:19:47.336 --> 00:19:50.439
  • You see, we're alljust trophies of grace.
  • 00:19:50.472 --> 00:19:52.908
  • That's why we can't have an"It's not my problem" attitude
  • 00:19:52.941 --> 00:19:54.743
  • because the sickness of sin ismy problem, but Jesus took it
  • 00:19:54.776 --> 00:19:59.848
  • away out of his grace.
  • 00:19:59.881 --> 00:20:03.652

  • 00:20:03.685 --> 00:20:06.822
