  • [NARRATOR] FROM THE PULPIT
  • 00:00:06.220 --> 00:00:07.270
  • OF THE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF DALLAS, TEXAS,
  • 00:00:07.280 --> 00:00:10.010
  • THIS IS PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:10.020 --> 00:00:14.130
  • HI, I'M ROBERT JEFFRESS
  • 00:00:14.140 --> 00:00:15.250
  • AND WELCOME AGAIN TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:15.260 --> 00:00:18.270
  • AS CHRISTIANS, WE UNDERSTAND THAT
  • 00:00:18.280 --> 00:00:21.010
  • GOOD WORKS CAN NEVER EARN GOD'S FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:00:21.020 --> 00:00:24.190
  • BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN OUR GOOD DEEDS ARE WORTHLESS.
  • 00:00:24.200 --> 00:00:27.130
  • IN FACT, THE WAY WE SPEND OUR LIFE HERE ON EARTH
  • 00:00:27.140 --> 00:00:30.110
  • AFTER WE BECOME A CHRISTIAN
  • 00:00:30.120 --> 00:00:32.060
  • WILL GREATLY DETERMINE OUR REWARDS IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:00:32.070 --> 00:00:35.250
  • THERE'S A DAY COMING WHEN GOD WILL JUDGE THE LIVES
  • 00:00:35.260 --> 00:00:38.250
  • OF EVERY CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:00:38.260 --> 00:00:40.180
  • AND THE RESULTS OF THAT JUDGMENT
  • 00:00:40.190 --> 00:00:42.200
  • WILL HAVE ETERNAL IMPLICATIONS.
  • 00:00:42.210 --> 00:00:45.120
  • WE'RE ANSWERING THE QUESTION,
  • 00:00:45.130 --> 00:00:47.000
  • WILL HEAVEN BE THE SAME FOR EVERYONE,
  • 00:00:47.010 --> 00:00:49.110
  • ON TODAY'S EDITION OF PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:49.120 --> 00:00:53.070
  • MUSIC
  • 00:00:53.080 --> 00:01:00.120
  • [NARRATOR] NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT
  • 00:01:00.130 --> 00:01:02.180
  • THAN INTRODUCING YOUR CHILDREN
  • 00:01:02.190 --> 00:01:04.030
  • AND GRANDCHILDREN TO JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:01:04.040 --> 00:01:06.140
  • AND TO HELP YOU DO THAT,
  • 00:01:06.150 --> 00:01:07.220
  • DR. JEFFRESS HAS WRITTEN A BRAND NEW BOOK CALLED
  • 00:01:07.230 --> 00:01:10.030
  • A PLACE CALLED HEAVEN FOR KIDS.
  • 00:01:10.040 --> 00:01:12.090
  • THIS ENGAGING ILLUSTRATED BOOK
  • 00:01:12.100 --> 00:01:13.250
  • IS PERFECT FOR CHILDREN OR GRANDCHILDREN
  • 00:01:13.260 --> 00:01:15.220
  • WHO MAY NOT GO TO CHURCH
  • 00:01:15.230 --> 00:01:17.050
  • BECAUSE IT INCLUDES A PRAYER OF SALVATION.
  • 00:01:17.060 --> 00:01:19.210
  • YOU CAN PRAY WITH THEM
  • 00:01:19.220 --> 00:01:21.000
  • TO ENSURE THEY'LL BE IN HEAVEN WITH YOU ONE DAY.
  • 00:01:21.010 --> 00:01:23.280
  • REQUEST A PLACE CALLED HEAVEN FOR KIDS
  • 00:01:23.290 --> 00:01:26.110
  • WHEN YOU GIVE A GENEROUS GIFT
  • 00:01:26.120 --> 00:01:27.210
  • TO SUPPORT THE MINISTRY OF PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:01:27.220 --> 00:01:31.200
  • MUSIC
  • 00:01:31.210 --> 00:01:38.100
  • IN OUR SERIES A PLACE CALLED HEAVEN
  • 00:01:38.110 --> 00:01:41.040
  • WE BEGAN ADDRESSING THE QUESTION LAST TIME,
  • 00:01:41.050 --> 00:01:44.280
  • WILL HEAVEN BE THE SAME FOR EVERYONE.
  • 00:01:44.290 --> 00:01:49.010
  • AND THE ANSWER, THE SURPRISING ANSWER FOR MANY IS
  • 00:01:49.020 --> 00:01:52.060
  • NO IT WILL NOT BE THE SAME FOR EVERYONE.
  • 00:01:52.070 --> 00:01:56.180
  • WHILE BECOMING A CHRISTIAN
  • 00:01:56.190 --> 00:01:58.210
  • EXEMPTS US FROM THE CONDEMNATION OF GOD,
  • 00:01:58.220 --> 00:02:02.200
  • AND AREN'T WE GRATEFUL FOR THAT?
  • 00:02:02.210 --> 00:02:04.200
  • IT EXEMPTS US FROM GOD'S CONDEMNATION.
  • 00:02:04.210 --> 00:02:07.010
  • BEING A CHRISTIAN DOES NOT EXEMPT US
  • 00:02:07.020 --> 00:02:09.010
  • FROM GOD'S EVALUATION OF OUR LIFE.
  • 00:02:09.020 --> 00:02:12.200
  • THE FACT IS, EVERY PERSON,
  • 00:02:12.210 --> 00:02:14.020
  • NON-CHRISTIAN AND CHRISTIAN ALIKE
  • 00:02:14.030 --> 00:02:15.280
  • WILL BE JUDGED BY GOD.
  • 00:02:15.290 --> 00:02:18.140
  • THE JUDGMENT FOR NON-CHRISTIANS IS THE JUDGMENT,
  • 00:02:18.150 --> 00:02:21.020
  • THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT.
  • 00:02:21.030 --> 00:02:23.100
  • THOSE WHO HAVE NOT TRUSTED IN CHRIST,
  • 00:02:23.110 --> 00:02:25.110
  • WHOSE NAMES ARE NOT FOUND WRITTEN
  • 00:02:25.120 --> 00:02:26.260
  • IN THE LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE,
  • 00:02:26.270 --> 00:02:28.060
  • THEY ARE CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE
  • 00:02:28.070 --> 00:02:30.250
  • AND TORMENTED DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER.
  • 00:02:30.260 --> 00:02:34.060
  • BUT THOSE OF US WHO ARE CHRISTIANS
  • 00:02:34.070 --> 00:02:36.100
  • ARE GOING TO STAND BEFORE A DIFFERENT JUDGMENT.
  • 00:02:36.110 --> 00:02:39.070
  • IT'S AN EVALUATION OF OUR LIFE.
  • 00:02:39.080 --> 00:02:41.130
  • IT'S CALLED THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST.
  • 00:02:41.140 --> 00:02:44.260
  • IN 2 CORINTHIANS 5:10 PAUL SAYS,
  • 00:02:44.270 --> 00:02:47.130
  • FOR WE MUST ALL APPEAR BEFORE THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST
  • 00:02:47.140 --> 00:02:53.010
  • SO THAT EACH ONE MAY BE RECOMPENSED
  • 00:02:53.020 --> 00:02:54.290
  • FOR HIS DEEDS IN THE BODY
  • 00:02:55.000 --> 00:02:56.250
  • ACCORDING TO WHAT HE HAS DONE,
  • 00:02:56.260 --> 00:02:58.150
  • WHETHER GOOD OR BAD.
  • 00:02:58.160 --> 00:03:00.250
  • THAT PHRASE JUDGMENT SEAT, BEMA,
  • 00:03:00.260 --> 00:03:03.200
  • REFERS TO A RAISED PLATFORM IN WHICH THE GOVERNOR,
  • 00:03:03.210 --> 00:03:07.150
  • OR SOME OTHER OFFICIAL WOULD REWARD
  • 00:03:07.160 --> 00:03:10.290
  • THOSE WHO HAD DONE EXCEPTIONALLY WELL
  • 00:03:11.000 --> 00:03:13.100
  • IN GAMES OR SOME OTHER TYPE OF CONTEST.
  • 00:03:13.110 --> 00:03:16.250
  • ONE DAY, WE'RE GOING TO STAND BEFORE GOD'S JUDGMENT
  • 00:03:16.260 --> 00:03:20.130
  • TO RECEIVE REWARDS FOR WHAT WE HAVE DONE.
  • 00:03:20.140 --> 00:03:23.240
  • NOW I'VE GIVEN YOU A SENTENCE ON YOUR OUTLINE
  • 00:03:23.250 --> 00:03:25.260
  • TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE
  • 00:03:25.270 --> 00:03:27.120
  • BETWEEN THE JUDGMENT FOR CHRISTIANS
  • 00:03:27.130 --> 00:03:29.180
  • AT THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST
  • 00:03:29.190 --> 00:03:31.080
  • AND THE JUDGMENT OF NON-CHRISTIANS
  • 00:03:31.090 --> 00:03:33.040
  • AT THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT.
  • 00:03:33.050 --> 00:03:35.090
  • THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST
  • 00:03:35.100 --> 00:03:37.170
  • IS FOR THE COMMENDATION OF BELIEVERS,
  • 00:03:37.180 --> 00:03:41.000
  • WHILE THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT
  • 00:03:41.010 --> 00:03:43.090
  • IS FOR THE CONDEMNATION OF UNBELIEVERS.
  • 00:03:43.100 --> 00:03:47.270
  • HOW WILL WE BE JUDGED?
  • 00:03:47.280 --> 00:03:49.270
  • WELL PAUL SAYS IN 2 CORINTHIANS 5.
  • 00:03:49.280 --> 00:03:52.240
  • WE WILL BE JUDGED ACCORDING TO WHAT WE HAVE DONE.
  • 00:03:52.250 --> 00:03:56.140
  • THIS EVALUATION OF OUR LIVES AS CHRISTIANS
  • 00:03:56.150 --> 00:03:59.260
  • IS BASED ON OUR WORKS, WHAT WE'VE DONE.
  • 00:03:59.270 --> 00:04:06.110
  • NOW THAT CONFUSES A LOT OF CHRISTIANS BECAUSE THEY SAY,
  • 00:04:06.120 --> 00:04:07.170
  • WELL WAIT A MINUTE,
  • 00:04:07.180 --> 00:04:08.240
  • I THOUGHT OUR GOOD WORKS DON'T MATTER.
  • 00:04:08.250 --> 00:04:10.250
  • WELL THEY DON'T MATTER BEFORE WE'RE SAVED,
  • 00:04:10.260 --> 00:04:13.160
  • BUT THEY MATTER A GREAT DEAL AFTER WE'RE SAVED.
  • 00:04:13.170 --> 00:04:16.220
  • AND WE MADE THE DISTINCTION LAST TIME BETWEEN
  • 00:04:16.230 --> 00:04:19.130
  • OUR WORKS BEFORE WE BECOME A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:04:19.140 --> 00:04:22.100
  • PRIOR TO OUR SALVATION,
  • 00:04:22.110 --> 00:04:23.280
  • THE BEST YOU AND I CAN DO IS LIKE A FILTHY RAG TO GOD.
  • 00:04:23.290 --> 00:04:28.160
  • EPHESIANS 2:8-9 MAKES IT VERY CLEAR.
  • 00:04:28.170 --> 00:04:30.220
  • IT'S BY GRACE WE ARE SAVED
  • 00:04:30.230 --> 00:04:33.150
  • AND THAT NOT OF WORKS LEST ANYONE SHOULD BOAST.
  • 00:04:33.160 --> 00:04:37.190
  • GOOD WORKS PLAY ABSOLUTELY NO ROLE IN EARNING SALVATION.
  • 00:04:37.200 --> 00:04:41.220
  • HOWEVER, OUR GOOD WORKS HAVE A GREAT VALUE
  • 00:04:41.230 --> 00:04:45.000
  • AFTER OUR SALVATION.
  • 00:04:45.010 --> 00:04:46.250
  • EPHESIANS 2:10 SAYS,
  • 00:04:46.260 --> 00:04:48.180
  • WE ARE SAVED NOT BY WORKS,
  • 00:04:48.190 --> 00:04:51.150
  • BUT FOR GOOD WORKS.
  • 00:04:51.160 --> 00:04:53.220
  • AGAIN, HERE'S A SENTENCE ON YOUR OUTLINE TO WRITE DOWN.
  • 00:04:53.230 --> 00:04:57.000
  • WHILE OUR WORKS ARE WORTHLESS IN SECURING US
  • 00:04:57.010 --> 00:05:00.260
  • A PLACE IN HEAVEN,
  • 00:05:00.270 --> 00:05:02.110
  • THEY ARE INTEGRAL IN DETERMINING OUR EXPERIENCE IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:05:02.120 --> 00:05:08.060
  • GOOD WORKS CAN'T EARN YOU YOUR PLACE IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:05:08.070 --> 00:05:10.190
  • THAT'S ONLY BY GOD'S GRACE, BY TRUSTING CHRIST.
  • 00:05:10.200 --> 00:05:13.200
  • BUT ONCE YOU'VE DONE THAT,
  • 00:05:13.210 --> 00:05:15.020
  • YOUR GOOD WORKS MATTER IN DETERMINING
  • 00:05:15.030 --> 00:05:17.270
  • THE KIND OF EXPERIENCE YOU WILL HAVE IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:05:17.280 --> 00:05:21.240
  • AND THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT TODAY.
  • 00:05:21.250 --> 00:05:24.240
  • LET'S FIRST OF ALL BEGIN BY LOOKING AT
  • 00:05:24.250 --> 00:05:27.010
  • EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENS AT THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST.
  • 00:05:27.020 --> 00:05:31.160
  • SINCE YOU'RE GONNA STAND THERE ONE DAY,
  • 00:05:31.170 --> 00:05:33.080
  • WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN
  • 00:05:33.090 --> 00:05:35.230
  • AT THAT JUDGMENT?
  • 00:05:35.240 --> 00:05:37.070
  • WELL TO EXPLAIN WHAT HAPPENS AT THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST,
  • 00:05:37.080 --> 00:05:40.250
  • PAUL USES THREE ANALOGIES.
  • 00:05:40.260 --> 00:05:44.110
  • THE FIRST ANALOGY IS THE TRUSTEE ANALOGY.
  • 00:05:44.120 --> 00:05:48.170
  • AND IT'S FOUND IN ROMANS 14.
  • 00:05:48.180 --> 00:05:51.000
  • TAKE YOUR BIBLES AND TURN TO ROMANS 14.
  • 00:05:51.010 --> 00:05:56.030
  • PAUL IS WRITING TO CHRISTIANS IN ROME.
  • 00:05:56.040 --> 00:05:59.010
  • THEY WERE BUSY JUDGING ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:05:59.020 --> 00:06:01.100
  • THERE WERE DIVISIONS IN THE ROMAN CHURCH.
  • 00:06:01.110 --> 00:06:04.000
  • AND PAUL SAID, QUIT YOUR JUDGING OF ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:06:04.010 --> 00:06:08.020
  • HE SAYS IN VERSE 10,
  • 00:06:08.030 --> 00:06:09.170
  • BUT WHY DO YOU JUDGE YOUR BROTHER?
  • 00:06:09.180 --> 00:06:12.170
  • OR WHY AGAIN DO YOU REGARD YOUR BROTHER WITH CONTEMPT?
  • 00:06:12.180 --> 00:06:16.150
  • YOU ARE NOT TO JUDGE ANOTHER.
  • 00:06:16.160 --> 00:06:20.020
  • WHEN HE SAYS DON'T JUDGE YOUR BROTHER,
  • 00:06:20.030 --> 00:06:22.130
  • HE WAS TALKING ABOUT CHRISTIANS
  • 00:06:22.140 --> 00:06:24.080
  • WHO WERE PRONOUNCING JUDGMENTS
  • 00:06:24.090 --> 00:06:26.090
  • ABOUT BEHAVIOR THE BIBLE DIDN'T EVEN ADDRESS.
  • 00:06:26.100 --> 00:06:29.100
  • CHRISTIANS WERE JUDGING EACH OTHER ABOUT WHAT THEY ATE
  • 00:06:29.110 --> 00:06:32.000
  • OR WHAT THEY DRANK,
  • 00:06:32.010 --> 00:06:33.190
  • OR ABOUT WHETHER THEY KEPT THE SABBATH DAYS OR NOT.
  • 00:06:33.200 --> 00:06:35.270
  • AND PAUL SAID, QUIT JUDGING PEOPLE.
  • 00:06:35.280 --> 00:06:38.110
  • LET'S EVERYBODY BE CONVINCED IN HIS OWN HEART ABOUT THAT
  • 00:06:38.120 --> 00:06:41.200
  • BECAUSE EVERY ONE OF US, LOOK AT VERSE 10,
  • 00:06:41.210 --> 00:06:43.290
  • WILL STAND BEFORE THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF GOD.
  • 00:06:44.000 --> 00:06:46.120
  • ONE DAY, YOU AND I ARE GONNA ANSWER TO GOD,
  • 00:06:46.130 --> 00:06:48.130
  • NOT TO ONE ANOTHER FOR THESE AREAS
  • 00:06:48.140 --> 00:06:50.190
  • THE BIBLE DOESN'T ADDRESS.
  • 00:06:50.200 --> 00:06:51.260
  • VERSE 11, FOR IT IS WRITTEN,
  • 00:06:51.270 --> 00:06:53.220
  • AS I LIVE SAYS THE LORD,
  • 00:06:53.230 --> 00:06:55.270
  • EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW TO ME,
  • 00:06:55.280 --> 00:06:58.050
  • AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL GIVE PRAISE TO GOD.
  • 00:06:58.060 --> 00:07:01.090
  • THAT'S A QUOTATION FROM ISAIAH 45.
  • 00:07:01.100 --> 00:07:03.210
  • DID YOU KNOW EVERYBODY WHO'S EVER LIVED
  • 00:07:03.220 --> 00:07:05.250
  • IS ONE DAY GOING TO BOW BEFORE JESUS CHRIST?
  • 00:07:05.260 --> 00:07:09.020
  • SOME WILL BOW BEFORE HIM AT THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT.
  • 00:07:09.030 --> 00:07:12.010
  • THEY WILL ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AS JUDGE
  • 00:07:12.020 --> 00:07:14.130
  • AND IT WILL BE TOO LATE FOR THEM.
  • 00:07:14.140 --> 00:07:16.160
  • BUT OTHERS WHO HAVE RECEIVED GOD'S GRACE,
  • 00:07:16.170 --> 00:07:18.290
  • WE TOO WILL REAFFIRM THAT JESUS CHRIST IS LORD.
  • 00:07:19.000 --> 00:07:22.090
  • AND THEN THE CONCLUSION, VERSE 12.
  • 00:07:22.100 --> 00:07:24.070
  • SO THEN, EACH ONE OF US AS CHRISTIANS
  • 00:07:24.080 --> 00:07:27.180
  • SHALL GIVE AN ACCOUNT OF HIMSELF TO GOD.
  • 00:07:27.190 --> 00:07:30.280
  • NOW THERE IS THAT TRUSTEE ANALOGY.
  • 00:07:30.290 --> 00:07:33.060
  • THAT WORD, GIVE AN ACCOUNT,
  • 00:07:33.070 --> 00:07:35.100
  • IS A WORD THAT REFERRED TO A FINANCIAL MANAGER.
  • 00:07:35.110 --> 00:07:39.110
  • YOU KNOW, IF YOU WANT TO,
  • 00:07:39.120 --> 00:07:40.190
  • YOU CAN ENTRUST YOUR ASSETS TO A MANAGER
  • 00:07:40.200 --> 00:07:43.190
  • WHO WILL OVERSEE THEM,
  • 00:07:43.200 --> 00:07:44.240
  • AND INVEST THEM ON YOUR BEHALF.
  • 00:07:44.250 --> 00:07:47.010
  • NOW HE DOESN'T OWN THE ASSETS, YOU DO.
  • 00:07:47.020 --> 00:07:49.040
  • HE HAS A RESPONSIBILITY,
  • 00:07:49.050 --> 00:07:51.030
  • A TRUST AGREEMENT TO MAXIMIZE YOUR ASSETS FOR GOOD.
  • 00:07:51.040 --> 00:07:57.120
  • THAT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE TRUSTEE.
  • 00:07:57.130 --> 00:08:00.080
  • HE DOESN'T OWN ANYTHING.
  • 00:08:00.090 --> 00:08:01.250
  • HE'S SIMPLY A MANAGER OF WHAT'S BEEN ENTRUSTED TO HIM.
  • 00:08:01.260 --> 00:08:05.170
  • AND AS WE SAW A FEW WEEKS AGO,
  • 00:08:05.180 --> 00:08:06.290
  • YOU AND I, WE DON'T OWN ANYTHING.
  • 00:08:07.000 --> 00:08:09.100
  • WE'RE SIMPLY MANAGERS.
  • 00:08:09.110 --> 00:08:11.210
  • WE DON'T OWN OUR MONEY, GOD DOES.
  • 00:08:11.220 --> 00:08:14.290
  • WE DON'T OWN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:08:15.000 --> 00:08:16.070
  • WE DON'T EVEN DETERMINE HOW LONG OUR LIVES ARE.
  • 00:08:16.080 --> 00:08:18.200
  • GOD DOES.
  • 00:08:18.210 --> 00:08:20.040
  • HE JUST ENTRUSTED US A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF TREASURE
  • 00:08:20.050 --> 00:08:23.110
  • AND TIME AND OPPORTUNITIES AND GIFTS.
  • 00:08:23.120 --> 00:08:26.030
  • AND OUR RESPONSIBILITY WITH WHAT HE'S ENTRUSTED TO US,
  • 00:08:26.040 --> 00:08:29.140
  • LISTEN TO THIS,
  • 00:08:29.150 --> 00:08:30.190
  • IS TO FURTHER HIS AGENDA, NOT OUR AGENDA.
  • 00:08:30.200 --> 00:08:33.000
  • AND ALTHOUGH WE HAVE A LOT OF LATITUDE
  • 00:08:33.010 --> 00:08:34.280
  • IN WHAT WE DO WITH OUR MONEY, AND OUR TIME, AND OUR TALENT,
  • 00:08:34.290 --> 00:08:37.110
  • ONE DAY WE WILL GIVE AN ACCOUNT TO GOD
  • 00:08:37.120 --> 00:08:40.140
  • FOR WHAT WE'VE DONE WITH THOSE THINGS WE'VE MANAGED.
  • 00:08:40.150 --> 00:08:43.170
  • JUST AS THE TRUSTEE GIVES AN ACCOUNT
  • 00:08:43.180 --> 00:08:46.220
  • TO THE OWNER OF WHAT HE'S DONE.
  • 00:08:46.230 --> 00:08:48.170
  • AND THAT'S THE ALLUSION HERE.
  • 00:08:48.180 --> 00:08:50.010
  • NOW WHAT'S INTERESTING IS,
  • 00:08:50.020 --> 00:08:52.140
  • IN THIS TRUST AGREEMENT,
  • 00:08:52.150 --> 00:08:54.160
  • AS TRUSTEES, WE ONLY WILL GIVE AN ACCOUNT TO THE OWNER, GOD,
  • 00:08:54.170 --> 00:09:00.140
  • OF WHAT HE'S ENTRUSTED TO US,
  • 00:09:00.150 --> 00:09:01.250
  • NOT TO WHAT HE'S ENTRUSTED TO OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:09:01.260 --> 00:09:05.220
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN I STAND BEFORE GOD,
  • 00:09:05.230 --> 00:09:07.050
  • MY JUDGMENT AT THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST
  • 00:09:07.060 --> 00:09:08.270
  • IS GONNA BE VERY PERSONAL AND INDIVIDUALIZED.
  • 00:09:08.280 --> 00:09:12.100
  • GOD IS NOT GONNA JUDGE ME
  • 00:09:12.110 --> 00:09:14.000
  • ACCORDING TO THE SAME STANDARD HE JUDGES BILLY GRAHAM.
  • 00:09:14.010 --> 00:09:18.120
  • GOD HAS GIVEN TO DR. GRAHAM CERTAIN GIFTS
  • 00:09:18.130 --> 00:09:21.110
  • AND CERTAIN OPPORTUNITIES THAT ARE UNIQUE TO HIM.
  • 00:09:21.120 --> 00:09:24.260
  • HE'S NOT GONNA SAY TO ME, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:09:24.270 --> 00:09:27.130
  • WHY DIDN'T YOU PREACH MORE FAITHFULLY
  • 00:09:27.140 --> 00:09:29.270
  • IN THAT STADIUM FILLED WITH 100.000 PEOPLE?
  • 00:09:29.280 --> 00:09:32.060
  • WELL, I'VE NEVER HAD THAT OPPORTUNITY.
  • 00:09:32.070 --> 00:09:34.120
  • DR. GRAHAM DID.
  • 00:09:34.130 --> 00:09:36.020
  • AND SO HE'S GONNA GIVE DR. GRAHAM A DIFFERENT JUDGMENT
  • 00:09:36.030 --> 00:09:38.250
  • THAN HE JUDGES ME.
  • 00:09:38.260 --> 00:09:40.080
  • HE'S GONNA JUDGE YOU ACCORDING TO A DIFFERENT STANDARD
  • 00:09:40.090 --> 00:09:42.100
  • THAN THAT WHICH HE JUDGES ME.
  • 00:09:42.110 --> 00:09:43.280
  • THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST IS GONNA BE A VERY PERSONALIZED,
  • 00:09:43.290 --> 00:09:47.170
  • INDIVIDUALIZED JUDGMENT
  • 00:09:47.180 --> 00:09:49.210
  • ACCORDING TO WHAT HAS BEEN ENTRUSTED TO US.
  • 00:09:49.220 --> 00:09:53.110
  • THAT IS THE TRUSTEE ANALOGY.
  • 00:09:53.120 --> 00:09:55.270
  • SECONDLY, HE USES THE CONSTRUCTION ANALOGY
  • 00:09:55.280 --> 00:09:59.080
  • TO DESCRIBE THE BEMA, THE JUDGMENT SEAT.
  • 00:09:59.090 --> 00:10:01.240
  • TURN OVER 1 CORINTHIANS 3.
  • 00:10:01.250 --> 00:10:03.230
  • WE READ THAT PASSAGE JUST A FEW MOMENTS AGO.
  • 00:10:03.240 --> 00:10:06.230
  • NOW TO BE CLEAR, IN 1 CORINTHIANS 3,
  • 00:10:06.240 --> 00:10:10.030
  • PAUL SPECIFICALLY IS TALKING ABOUT BUILDING A MINISTRY,
  • 00:10:10.040 --> 00:10:14.160
  • ABOUT THE KIND OF MINISTRY HE HAD VERSUS OTHER APOSTLES.
  • 00:10:14.170 --> 00:10:19.000
  • BUT HE EXTRAPOLATES FROM THE MINISTRY EXAMPLE
  • 00:10:19.010 --> 00:10:22.040
  • TO INCLUDE EVERY CHRISTIAN'S LIFE.
  • 00:10:22.050 --> 00:10:24.100
  • NOTICE WHAT HE SAYS HERE.
  • 00:10:24.110 --> 00:10:26.160
  • ACCORDING TO THE GRACE OF GOD, VERSE 10,
  • 00:10:26.170 --> 00:10:28.200
  • WHICH WAS GIVEN TO ME AS A WISE MASTER BUILDER,
  • 00:10:28.210 --> 00:10:32.170
  • I LAID A FOUNDATION
  • 00:10:32.180 --> 00:10:34.100
  • AND ANOTHER IS BUILDING UPON IT.
  • 00:10:34.110 --> 00:10:36.080
  • BUT LET EACH MAN BE CAREFUL HOW HE BUILDS UPON IT.
  • 00:10:36.090 --> 00:10:39.200
  • FOR NO MAN CAN LAY A FOUNDATION
  • 00:10:39.210 --> 00:10:42.130
  • OTHER THAN THAT WHICH IS LAID, WHICH IS JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:10:42.140 --> 00:10:46.140
  • PAUL IS INVITING YOU TO THINK ABOUT YOUR LIFE
  • 00:10:46.150 --> 00:10:49.260
  • LIKE A HOUSE THAT'S BEING CONSTRUCTED.
  • 00:10:49.270 --> 00:10:52.170
  • NOW EVERY CHRISTIAN HAS THE SAME FOUNDATION
  • 00:10:52.180 --> 00:10:55.180
  • FOR HIS HOUSE.
  • 00:10:55.190 --> 00:10:57.010
  • YOUR LIFE IS LIKE A HOUSE THAT YOU CONSTRUCT.
  • 00:10:57.020 --> 00:10:59.280
  • YOU HAVE THE SAME FOUNDATION AS EVERY OTHER CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:10:59.290 --> 00:11:02.130
  • AND THAT IS THAT FOUNDATION
  • 00:11:02.140 --> 00:11:04.040
  • IS THE UNCHANGEABLE JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:11:04.050 --> 00:11:08.040
  • WE'RE ALL SAVED IF WE'VE TRUSTED IN CHRIST.
  • 00:11:08.050 --> 00:11:11.020
  • JESUS IS OUR FOUNDATION.
  • 00:11:11.030 --> 00:11:13.200
  • BUT WE HAVE A CHOICE OF WHAT KIND OF HOUSE,
  • 00:11:13.210 --> 00:11:16.210
  • THAT IS WHAT KIND OF LIFE,
  • 00:11:16.220 --> 00:11:18.130
  • WE BUILD ON THE FOUNDATION OF OUR SALVATION.
  • 00:11:18.140 --> 00:11:22.030
  • AND THE CHOICE OF WHAT KIND OF HOUSE WE BUILD
  • 00:11:22.040 --> 00:11:24.170
  • DEPENDS UPON THE KIND OF BUILDING MATERIAL WE CHOOSE.
  • 00:11:24.180 --> 00:11:27.170
  • LOOK AT VERSE 12.
  • 00:11:27.180 --> 00:11:28.250
  • NOW IF ANY MAN BUILDS UPON THE FOUNDATION
  • 00:11:28.260 --> 00:11:31.070
  • WITH GOLD, SILVER, PRECIOUS STONES,
  • 00:11:31.080 --> 00:11:34.240
  • OR WOOD, HAY, AND STRAW.
  • 00:11:34.250 --> 00:11:38.070
  • YOU CAN BUILD YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO
  • 00:11:38.080 --> 00:11:40.140
  • WHAT BUILDING MATERIALS YOU CHOOSE.
  • 00:11:40.150 --> 00:11:42.250
  • BUT NOTICE ONE DAY,
  • 00:11:42.260 --> 00:11:44.020
  • THE KIND OF LIFE YOU HAVE BUILT
  • 00:11:44.030 --> 00:11:46.140
  • IS GONNA BE TESTED BY THE FIRE OF GOD'S JUDGMENT.
  • 00:11:46.150 --> 00:11:49.090
  • VERSE 13, EACH MAN'S WORK WILL BECOME EVIDENT,
  • 00:11:49.100 --> 00:11:53.050
  • FOR THE DAY WILL SHOW IT,
  • 00:11:53.060 --> 00:11:54.210
  • BECAUSE IT IS TO BE REVEALED WITH FIRE,
  • 00:11:54.220 --> 00:11:57.000
  • AND THE FIRE ITSELF
  • 00:11:57.010 --> 00:12:00.090
  • WILL REVEAL THE QUALITY OF EACH MAN'S WORK.
  • 00:12:00.100 --> 00:12:03.200
  • WOULD YOU NOTICE THE TWO CRITERIA
  • 00:12:03.210 --> 00:12:05.230
  • GOD IS GONNA USE TO JUDGE THE KIND OF LIFE
  • 00:12:05.240 --> 00:12:08.140
  • YOU AND I HAVE BUILT.
  • 00:12:08.150 --> 00:12:10.210
  • NUMBER ONE, THE SIGNIFICANCE OF OUR LIFE.
  • 00:12:10.220 --> 00:12:14.150
  • THE SIGNIFICANCE, OR THE DURABILITY OF OUR WORKS.
  • 00:12:14.160 --> 00:12:18.280
  • FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU SPEND YOUR TIME AND TALENTS,
  • 00:12:18.290 --> 00:12:22.160
  • AND TREASURES HERE ON EARTH
  • 00:12:22.170 --> 00:12:24.180
  • PURSUING POWER AND PROFITS FROM SELF GLORIFICATION,
  • 00:12:24.190 --> 00:12:28.180
  • THAT'S LIKE BUILDING A HOUSE OF WOOD,
  • 00:12:28.190 --> 00:12:31.250
  • OR HAY, OR STRAW.
  • 00:12:31.260 --> 00:12:34.160
  • I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT BUILDING A LIFE THAT'S BUILT ON EVIL.
  • 00:12:34.170 --> 00:12:38.090
  • I'M JUST TALKING ABOUT A WORTHLESS LIFE,
  • 00:12:38.100 --> 00:12:41.010
  • A LIFE THAT IS CENTERED AROUND YOUR OWN AGENDA,
  • 00:12:41.020 --> 00:12:44.120
  • PROFITS, POWER, OR PLEASURE.
  • 00:12:44.130 --> 00:12:47.200
  • WHAT HAPPENS AT THE JUDGMENT
  • 00:12:47.210 --> 00:12:49.170
  • IF YOUR LIFE IS BUILT WITH THOSE THINS?
  • 00:12:49.180 --> 00:12:53.090
  • IT'S NOT LIKE THE STORY OF THE THREE PIGS
  • 00:12:53.100 --> 00:12:55.240
  • WHERE JESUS WILL HUFF AND PUFF
  • 00:12:55.250 --> 00:12:57.200
  • AND BLOW YOUR HOUSE DOWN.
  • 00:12:57.210 --> 00:12:59.230
  • INSTEAD, HE JUST SETS A MATCH TO IT.
  • 00:12:59.240 --> 00:13:03.010
  • HE BURNS IT UP.
  • 00:13:03.020 --> 00:13:04.070
  • THAT'S WHAT HE'S SAYING HERE.
  • 00:13:04.080 --> 00:13:05.230
  • NOTHING WILL LAST.
  • 00:13:05.240 --> 00:13:08.040
  • IT WILL BE CONSUMED WITH FIRE.
  • 00:13:08.050 --> 00:13:11.150
  • ON THE OTHER HAND,
  • 00:13:11.160 --> 00:13:12.290
  • YOU CAN BUILD YOUR LIFE WITH MORE DURABLE MATERIALS,
  • 00:13:13.000 --> 00:13:16.100
  • GOLD, SILVER, PRECIOUS STONES.
  • 00:13:16.110 --> 00:13:19.170
  • A LIFE THAT IS BUILT AROUND GLORIFYING GOD,
  • 00:13:19.180 --> 00:13:23.040
  • MAKING HIM LOOK GOOD,
  • 00:13:23.050 --> 00:13:24.180
  • NO MATTER WHAT YOUR DAILY RESPONSIBILITIES ARE.
  • 00:13:24.190 --> 00:13:27.060
  • A LIFE BUILT AROUND SHARING CHRIST
  • 00:13:27.070 --> 00:13:29.120
  • WITH AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE.
  • 00:13:29.130 --> 00:13:31.270
  • A LIFE BUILT AROUND GIVING UP SOME TEMPORARY PLEASURES
  • 00:13:31.280 --> 00:13:36.150
  • AND PERKS IN THIS LIFE
  • 00:13:36.160 --> 00:13:38.030
  • TO INVEST YOUR MONEY IN GOD'S KINGDOM.
  • 00:13:38.040 --> 00:13:41.000
  • THOSE THINGS REALLY MATTER TO GOD.
  • 00:13:41.010 --> 00:13:42.290
  • THEY MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:13:43.000 --> 00:13:44.150
  • IT'S A LIFE BUILT WITH GOLD, SILVER, AND PRECIOUS STONES.
  • 00:13:44.160 --> 00:13:48.130
  • VERSE 14, IF ANY MAN'S WORK
  • 00:13:48.140 --> 00:13:50.190
  • WHICH HE HAS BUILT UPON IT REMAINS,
  • 00:13:50.200 --> 00:13:52.210
  • HE SHALL RECEIVE A REWARD.
  • 00:13:52.220 --> 00:13:55.180
  • BUT NOTICE VERSE 15.
  • 00:13:55.190 --> 00:13:56.220
  • IF ANY MAN'S WORK IS BURNED UP.
  • 00:13:56.230 --> 00:13:59.070
  • THAT IS, EVALUATED TO BE WORTHLESS.
  • 00:13:59.080 --> 00:14:03.040
  • IF ANY MAN'S WORK IS BURNED UP,
  • 00:14:03.050 --> 00:14:04.230
  • HE SHALL SUFFER LOSS,
  • 00:14:04.240 --> 00:14:07.000
  • BUT HE HIMSELF WILL BE SAVED THOUGH AS BY FIRE.
  • 00:14:07.010 --> 00:14:11.110
  • THAT'S PROBABLY A SAVE LIKE WE WOULD HAVE TODAY.
  • 00:14:11.120 --> 00:14:15.220
  • HE WILL BE SAVED BY THE SKIN OF HIS TEETH.
  • 00:14:15.230 --> 00:14:18.250
  • HAVE YOU EVER HEARD THAT BEFORE?
  • 00:14:18.260 --> 00:14:20.170
  • HE'LL MAKE IT TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:14:20.180 --> 00:14:21.270
  • IF YOU'RE TRULY A CHRISTIAN
  • 00:14:21.280 --> 00:14:24.030
  • AND YOUR LIFE IS JUDGED TO BE WORTHLESS,
  • 00:14:24.040 --> 00:14:26.260
  • YOU'LL STILL GET INTO HEAVEN,
  • 00:14:26.270 --> 00:14:29.170
  • BUT YOU'LL SMELL OF SMOKE.
  • 00:14:29.180 --> 00:14:31.030
  • YOU'LL JUST BARELY MAKE IT THERE.
  • 00:14:31.040 --> 00:14:32.210
  • THOUGH AS BY FIRE.
  • 00:14:32.220 --> 00:14:34.020
  • THAT'S WHAT HE'S TALKING HERE,
  • 00:14:34.030 --> 00:14:35.020
  • BY THE SKIN OF YOUR TEETH.
  • 00:14:35.030 --> 00:14:36.140
  • SO THE FIRST CRITERION OF JUDGMENT WILL BE
  • 00:14:36.150 --> 00:14:39.090
  • THE SIGNIFICANCE OF OUR WORKS.
  • 00:14:39.100 --> 00:14:40.220
  • THE SECOND JUDGMENT
  • 00:14:40.230 --> 00:14:42.190
  • WILL BE ACCORDING TO THE MOTIVES OF OUR WORKS.
  • 00:14:42.200 --> 00:14:45.260
  • SOMETIMES WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
  • 00:14:45.270 --> 00:14:47.230
  • IS AS IMPORTANT AS WHAT WE DO.
  • 00:14:47.240 --> 00:14:49.280
  • IN 1 CORINTHIANS 4:5, PAUL SAYS,
  • 00:14:49.290 --> 00:14:52.090
  • THEREFORE DO NOT GO ON PASSING JUDGMENT BEFORE THE TIME.
  • 00:14:52.100 --> 00:14:56.100
  • BUT WAIT UNTIL THE LORD COMES WHO WILL BRING TO LIGHT
  • 00:14:56.110 --> 00:14:59.210
  • THE THINGS HIDDEN IN THE DARKNESS
  • 00:14:59.220 --> 00:15:02.150
  • AND DISCLOSE THE MOTIVES OF MEN'S HEARTS,
  • 00:15:02.160 --> 00:15:05.090
  • AND THEN EACH MAN'S PRAISE WILL COME TO HIM FROM GOD.
  • 00:15:05.100 --> 00:15:10.140
  • GOD CARES ABOUT OUR MOTIVES.
  • 00:15:10.150 --> 00:15:12.270
  • YOU KNOW, IF YOU GIVE MONEY TO GOD'S WORK
  • 00:15:12.280 --> 00:15:15.080
  • IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO BRAG TO OTHERS
  • 00:15:15.090 --> 00:15:16.260
  • HOW MUCH YOU'RE GIVING,
  • 00:15:16.270 --> 00:15:18.230
  • THAT DOESN'T COUNT FOR GOLD.
  • 00:15:18.240 --> 00:15:19.280
  • IT COUNTS AS WOOD.
  • 00:15:19.290 --> 00:15:21.250
  • IF YOU ARE DILIGENT IN SHARING YOUR FAITH WITH OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:15:21.260 --> 00:15:25.270
  • SO THAT YOU CAN BRAG ABOUT
  • 00:15:25.280 --> 00:15:27.120
  • HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE IN THE KINGDOM BECAUSE OF YOU,
  • 00:15:27.130 --> 00:15:30.010
  • THAT'S NOT SILVER, THAT'S HAY.
  • 00:15:30.020 --> 00:15:32.290
  • OUR MOTIVES REALLY DO MATTER BEFORE GOD.
  • 00:15:33.000 --> 00:15:36.010
  • PROVERBS 16:2 SAYS,
  • 00:15:36.020 --> 00:15:37.160
  • ALL THE WAYS OF A MAN ARE CLEAN IN HIS OWN SIGHT,
  • 00:15:37.170 --> 00:15:40.230
  • BUT THE LORD WEIGHS THE MOTIVES.
  • 00:15:40.240 --> 00:15:43.230
  • NOW SOME OF YOU MIGHT ASK WELL PASTOR,
  • 00:15:43.240 --> 00:15:45.270
  • ISN'T LIVING YOUR LIFE IN ORDER TO EARN REWARDS,
  • 00:15:45.280 --> 00:15:49.270
  • ISN'T THAT KIND OF A SELFISH MOTIVE?
  • 00:15:49.280 --> 00:15:53.060
  • ISN'T THAT SELF-CENTERED?
  • 00:15:53.070 --> 00:15:54.040
  • I WANT TO EARN ALL THESE REWARDS
  • 00:15:54.050 --> 00:15:55.200
  • SO I CAN HAVE A BETTER SPOT IN HEAVEN THAN OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:55.210 --> 00:15:58.010
  • THAT SOUNDS PRETTY SELFISH TO ME.
  • 00:15:58.020 --> 00:15:59.250
  • LOOK, SELFISHNESS, SOMEBODY SAID,
  • 00:15:59.260 --> 00:16:04.280
  • IS TRYING TO ACHIEVE AT SOMEBODY ELSE'S EXPENSE.
  • 00:16:04.290 --> 00:16:10.250
  • SELFISHNESS IS TRYING TO GAIN MORE
  • 00:16:10.260 --> 00:16:12.250
  • AT SOMEBODY ELSE'S EXPENSE.
  • 00:16:12.260 --> 00:16:15.060
  • BUT DID YOU KNOW IT'S POSSIBLE TO GAIN MORE
  • 00:16:15.070 --> 00:16:17.080
  • AT GOD'S EXPENSE?
  • 00:16:17.090 --> 00:16:18.240
  • BECAUSE GOD DOES NOT HAVE A FINITE AMOUNT OF RESOURCES
  • 00:16:18.250 --> 00:16:22.010
  • THAT IF YOU TAKE SOME FROM HIM HE HAS LESS.
  • 00:16:22.020 --> 00:16:24.120
  • HE HAS AN INEXHAUSTIBLE SUPPLY OF RICHES.
  • 00:16:24.130 --> 00:16:27.090
  • WHEN HE REWARDS YOU,
  • 00:16:27.100 --> 00:16:29.000
  • HIS NET WORTH IS NOT DIMINISHED ONE IOTA.
  • 00:16:29.010 --> 00:16:34.030
  • IN FACT, WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT,
  • 00:16:34.040 --> 00:16:36.020
  • WORKING FOR REWARDS IS REALLY A SIGN
  • 00:16:36.030 --> 00:16:39.150
  • OF WHAT GOD VALUES MOST IN OUR LIFE.
  • 00:16:39.160 --> 00:16:41.290
  • AND THAT IS FAITH.
  • 00:16:42.000 --> 00:16:44.050
  • THINK FOR EXAMPLE ABOUT ABRAHAM.
  • 00:16:44.060 --> 00:16:46.150
  • WHY IS IT THAT ABRAHAM WAS WILLING TO UPROOT HIS FAMILY
  • 00:16:46.160 --> 00:16:49.160
  • AND TRAVEL TO A LAND HE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW
  • 00:16:49.170 --> 00:16:51.150
  • WHERE HE WAS GOING TO?
  • 00:16:51.160 --> 00:16:52.270
  • WHAT WAS HIS MOTIVE IN LEAVING EVERYBODY
  • 00:16:52.280 --> 00:16:55.010
  • AND EVERYTHING FAMILIAR BEHIND HIM?
  • 00:16:55.020 --> 00:16:57.110
  • VERSE 10 OF HEBREWS 11 SAYS,
  • 00:16:57.120 --> 00:16:59.070
  • ABRAHAM WAS LOOKING FOR THE CITY
  • 00:16:59.080 --> 00:17:02.120
  • WHICH HAS FOUNDATIONS WHOSE ARCHITECT AND BUILDER IS GOD.
  • 00:17:02.130 --> 00:17:06.250
  • HE DID IT FOR HEAVEN.
  • 00:17:06.260 --> 00:17:08.280
  • HE OBEYED GOD BECAUSE OF THE REWARDS
  • 00:17:08.290 --> 00:17:11.060
  • THAT AWAITED HIM IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:17:11.070 --> 00:17:13.010
  • OR THINK ABOUT MOSES.
  • 00:17:13.020 --> 00:17:14.230
  • MOSES VOLUNTARILY SURRENDERED
  • 00:17:14.240 --> 00:17:16.230
  • THE PERKS OF LIVING IN PHARAOH'S HOUSEHOLD
  • 00:17:16.240 --> 00:17:19.090
  • TO IDENTIFY WITH GOD'S PEOPLE, THE ISRAELITES.
  • 00:17:19.100 --> 00:17:22.150
  • WHY WAS HE WILLING TO GIVE UP THOSE PRIVILEGES?
  • 00:17:22.160 --> 00:17:25.070
  • OUT OF HIS DEDICATION TO GOD ALONE?
  • 00:17:25.080 --> 00:17:28.190
  • PARTLY, BUT NOT COMPLETELY.
  • 00:17:28.200 --> 00:17:30.040
  • VERSE 25 OF HEBREWS 11 SAYS,
  • 00:17:30.050 --> 00:17:32.150
  • MOSES CHOOSING RATHER TO ENDURE ILL TREATMENT
  • 00:17:32.160 --> 00:17:36.020
  • WITH THE PEOPLE OF GOD
  • 00:17:36.030 --> 00:17:37.200
  • THAN TO ENJOY THE PASSING PLEASURES OF SIN,
  • 00:17:37.210 --> 00:17:41.030
  • CONSIDERING, VERSE 26, THE REPROACH OF CHRIST
  • 00:17:41.040 --> 00:17:45.210
  • GREATER RICHES THAN THE TREASURES OF EGYPT.
  • 00:17:45.220 --> 00:17:49.100
  • FOR HE WAS LOOKING TO THE WHAT?
  • 00:17:49.110 --> 00:17:52.010
  • TO THE REWARD.
  • 00:17:52.020 --> 00:17:54.050
  • VERSE 26, THAT WORD CONSIDERING,
  • 00:17:54.060 --> 00:17:56.060
  • MOSES CONSIDERED THE REPROACH OF CHRIST
  • 00:17:56.070 --> 00:17:58.290
  • GREATER THAN THE REWARDS OF EGYPT.
  • 00:17:59.000 --> 00:18:00.220
  • THAT WORD CONSIDER IS A MATHEMATIC TERM.
  • 00:18:00.230 --> 00:18:04.070
  • IT MEANS TO CALCULATE, TO CALCULATE.
  • 00:18:04.080 --> 00:18:07.190
  • IN OTHER WORDS, AS MOSES WAS WEIGHING
  • 00:18:07.200 --> 00:18:09.120
  • WHAT DECISION HE WAS GONNA MAKE,
  • 00:18:09.130 --> 00:18:11.190
  • HE DID THE MATH IN HIS HEAD.
  • 00:18:11.200 --> 00:18:13.200
  • HE SAID OKAY, THE CHOICE IS TEMPORARY PLEASURE
  • 00:18:13.210 --> 00:18:17.230
  • IN PHARAOH'S HOUSEHOLD OR ETERNAL RICHES IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:18:17.240 --> 00:18:21.120
  • HEY, I THINK I'LL CHOOSE THE LATTER.
  • 00:18:21.130 --> 00:18:23.150
  • THE ETERNAL RICHES ARE BETTER THAN TEMPORARY PLEASURE.
  • 00:18:23.160 --> 00:18:26.150
  • HE DID THE MATH.
  • 00:18:26.160 --> 00:18:27.230
  • HE CALCULATED THE REWARDS IN HEAVEN
  • 00:18:27.240 --> 00:18:30.270
  • WAS WHAT WAS WORTH LIVING FOR.
  • 00:18:30.280 --> 00:18:33.290
  • THAT WASN'T A SELFISH MOTIVE.
  • 00:18:34.000 --> 00:18:36.050
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU GIVE UP TEMPORARY MONEY, PLEASURE,
  • 00:18:36.060 --> 00:18:41.270
  • PURSUITS IN THIS LIFE,
  • 00:18:41.280 --> 00:18:43.080
  • IN ORDER TO EARN REWARDS,
  • 00:18:43.090 --> 00:18:45.060
  • THAT'S THE ESSENCE OF WHAT FAITH IS.
  • 00:18:45.070 --> 00:18:48.020
  • WHEN YOU GIVE UP THE TEMPORARY FOR THE ETERNAL.
  • 00:18:48.030 --> 00:18:51.050
  • WHETHER IT'S YOUR MONEY,
  • 00:18:51.060 --> 00:18:52.180
  • YOUR TIME, YOUR ENERGY.
  • 00:18:52.190 --> 00:18:54.130
  • WHEN YOU MAKE THAT TRADE,
  • 00:18:54.140 --> 00:18:57.080
  • YOU'RE SHOWING THE ESSENCE OF FAITH.
  • 00:18:57.090 --> 00:18:59.260
  • GOD, I BELIEVE WHAT YOU'VE SAID.
  • 00:18:59.270 --> 00:19:02.080
  • I BELIEVE YOU REWARD THOSE
  • 00:19:02.090 --> 00:19:04.090
  • WHO DILIGENTLY FOLLOW AFTER YOU.
  • 00:19:04.100 --> 00:19:07.260
  • THE THIRD ANALOGY HERE IS THE RACE ANALOGY.
  • 00:19:07.270 --> 00:19:11.210
  • IT'S FOUND IN 1 CORINTHIANS 9:24-27.
  • 00:19:11.220 --> 00:19:15.140
  • JUST LOOK AT VERSES 24 AND 25.
  • 00:19:15.150 --> 00:19:20.020
  • DO YOU NOT KNOW THAT THOSE WHO RUN IN A RACE ALL RUN
  • 00:19:20.030 --> 00:19:23.280
  • BUT ONLY ONE RECEIVES THE PRIZE?
  • 00:19:23.290 --> 00:19:26.130
  • RUN IN SUCH A WAY THAT YOU MAY WIN.
  • 00:19:26.140 --> 00:19:29.110
  • EVERYONE WHO COMPETES IN THE GAMES
  • 00:19:29.120 --> 00:19:32.030
  • EXERCISES SELF-CONTROL IN ALL THINGS.
  • 00:19:32.040 --> 00:19:35.180
  • THEY THEN DO IT TO RECEIVE A PERISHABLE WREATH,
  • 00:19:35.190 --> 00:19:39.020
  • BUT WE AN IMPERISHABLE.
  • 00:19:39.030 --> 00:19:41.270
  • THEREFORE I RUN IN SUCH A WAY AS NOT WITHOUT AIM.
  • 00:19:41.280 --> 00:19:46.020
  • NOW THE READERS IN CORINTH UNDERSTOOD
  • 00:19:46.030 --> 00:19:48.010
  • WHAT PAUL WAS TALKING ABOUT HERE.
  • 00:19:48.020 --> 00:19:49.110
  • THIS WAS AN ALLUSION TO THE ISTHMIAN GAMES.
  • 00:19:49.120 --> 00:19:52.250
  • THEY WERE HELD IN CORINTH EVERY TWO YEARS.
  • 00:19:52.260 --> 00:19:56.260
  • NOW YOU HAD THE OLYMPIC GAMES THAT WERE HELD IN ATHENS.
  • 00:19:56.270 --> 00:19:59.150
  • BUT THE ISTHMIAN GAMES WERE HELD EVERY TWO YEARS IN ATHENS.
  • 00:19:59.160 --> 00:20:04.010
  • IT WAS A MULTITUDE OF DIFFERENT CONTESTS.
  • 00:20:04.020 --> 00:20:06.160
  • WRESTLING, BOXING, FOOT RACES.
  • 00:20:06.170 --> 00:20:09.140
  • BUT PAUL HERE TALKS ABOUT THE FOOT RACE.
  • 00:20:09.150 --> 00:20:12.160
  • AND HE SAYS YOU KNOW,
  • 00:20:12.170 --> 00:20:13.150
  • IF YOU'RE GONNA WIN THIS GAME,
  • 00:20:13.160 --> 00:20:15.130
  • YOU'VE GOTTA RUN IN SUCH A WAY AS TO WIN.
  • 00:20:15.140 --> 00:20:18.100
  • AND THEN HE MAKES THE ALLUSION TO THE FACT
  • 00:20:18.110 --> 00:20:20.020
  • THAT THOSE WHO RUN A FOOT RACE IN THIS WORLD,
  • 00:20:20.030 --> 00:20:22.150
  • THEY DO IT TO RECEIVE A PERISHABLE WREATH.
  • 00:20:22.160 --> 00:20:26.140
  • NOW IF YOU WON IN THE OLYMPICS IN ATHENS, YOU GOT WHAT?
  • 00:20:26.150 --> 00:20:29.110
  • YOU KNOW WHAT THE REWARD WAS?
  • 00:20:29.120 --> 00:20:31.080
  • GOLD, I MEAN YOU GOT THE GOLD MEDALS.
  • 00:20:31.090 --> 00:20:34.250
  • BUT AT THE ISTHMIAN,
  • 00:20:34.260 --> 00:20:36.020
  • THEY WERE KINDA BUDGET CONSCIOUS THERE.
  • 00:20:36.030 --> 00:20:38.220
  • SO YOU DIDN'T GET GOLD.
  • 00:20:38.230 --> 00:20:40.080
  • INSTEAD, WHEN YOU WALKED UP THE BEMA, THE JUDGMENT SEAT,
  • 00:20:40.090 --> 00:20:44.090
  • THE GOVERNOR WOULD PLACE AROUND YOUR NECK A WREATH
  • 00:20:44.100 --> 00:20:47.260
  • MADE OF PARSLEY OR WILD CELERY.
  • 00:20:47.270 --> 00:20:51.200
  • LITTLE STEP DOWN FROM ATHENS OKAY.
  • 00:20:51.210 --> 00:20:54.130
  • NOW EVERYBODY WAS HONORED TO RECEIVE THAT WREATH,
  • 00:20:54.140 --> 00:20:57.060
  • BUT YOU COULD ONLY WEAR IT FOR A DAY OR TWO
  • 00:20:57.070 --> 00:20:59.070
  • BEFORE IT BEGAN TO WILT.
  • 00:20:59.080 --> 00:21:01.020
  • YOU KNOW, YOU HAD TO THROW IT AWAY.
  • 00:21:01.030 --> 00:21:02.140
  • IT STARTED TO SMELL.
  • 00:21:02.150 --> 00:21:03.200
  • NOBODY WANTED TO WEAR THAT AFTER A WEEK.
  • 00:21:03.210 --> 00:21:06.030
  • AND THAT'S WHAT PAUL WAS TALKING ABOUT HERE.
  • 00:21:06.040 --> 00:21:08.020
  • THOSE WHO WIN THESE FOOT RACES,
  • 00:21:08.030 --> 00:21:09.230
  • THEY DO IT FOR A PERISHABLE WREATH.
  • 00:21:09.240 --> 00:21:12.100
  • WE DO IT FOR AN AWARD THAT IS IMPERISHABLE.
  • 00:21:12.110 --> 00:21:17.230
  • YOU KNOW, IF YOU'RE GONNA WIN A FOOT RACE,
  • 00:21:17.240 --> 00:21:19.250
  • COUPLE THINGS YOU HAVE TO DO.
  • 00:21:19.260 --> 00:21:21.110
  • FIRST OF ALL, YOU HAVE TO START WHEN THE OFFICIAL
  • 00:21:21.120 --> 00:21:23.130
  • SOUNDS THE FIRING GUN.
  • 00:21:23.140 --> 00:21:25.100
  • SECONDLY, YOU HAVE TO STAY IN THE COURSE
  • 00:21:25.110 --> 00:21:27.170
  • THAT HAS BEEN DESIGNED FOR YOU.
  • 00:21:27.180 --> 00:21:29.010
  • BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY,
  • 00:21:29.020 --> 00:21:30.150
  • YOU HAVE TO KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE FINISH LINE.
  • 00:21:30.160 --> 00:21:33.140
  • YOU CAN'T GET DISTRACTED.
  • 00:21:33.150 --> 00:21:35.120
  • YOU KNOW THE GREATEST THREAT TO A RUNNER
  • 00:21:35.130 --> 00:21:38.080
  • IS BECOMING DISTRACTED,
  • 00:21:38.090 --> 00:21:40.200
  • NOT KEEPING YOUR EYE ON THE FINISH LINE.
  • 00:21:40.210 --> 00:21:44.150
  • AND WHAT PAUL WAS SAYING HERE IS,
  • 00:21:44.160 --> 00:21:46.070
  • I DON'T RUN WITHOUT AIM.
  • 00:21:46.080 --> 00:21:48.120
  • I KEEP MY MIND ON THE FINISH LINE.
  • 00:21:48.130 --> 00:21:51.290
  • YOU KNOW IT'S SO EASY FOR THOSE OF US WHO ARE CHRISTIANS
  • 00:21:52.000 --> 00:21:55.210
  • TO BE DISTRACTED,
  • 00:21:55.220 --> 00:21:57.110
  • TO FORGET WHY WE'RE HERE,
  • 00:21:57.120 --> 00:22:00.080
  • TO SPEND OUR TIME NOT IN EVIL THINGS.
  • 00:22:00.090 --> 00:22:02.130
  • THAT'S NOT WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:22:02.140 --> 00:22:03.200
  • BUT SPEND OUR TIME READING OUR FACEBOOK
  • 00:22:03.210 --> 00:22:06.260
  • OR TWITTER FEEDS,
  • 00:22:06.270 --> 00:22:08.140
  • OR WATCHING TELEVISION.
  • 00:22:08.150 --> 00:22:12.130
  • GETTING CAUGHT UP IN THE NEWS
  • 00:22:12.140 --> 00:22:13.230
  • OR GETTING CAUGHT UP IN THIS PURSUIT.
  • 00:22:13.240 --> 00:22:15.120
  • NOTHING WRONG WITH ANY OF THOSE THINGS
  • 00:22:15.130 --> 00:22:18.140
  • UNLESS IT DISTRACTS YOU FROM DOING
  • 00:22:18.150 --> 00:22:20.100
  • THAT ONE THING GOD HAS LEFT YOU TO DO.
  • 00:22:20.110 --> 00:22:23.110
  • MUSIC
  • 00:22:23.120 --> 00:22:28.050

  • 00:22:28.060 --> 00:22:29.180
  • WE'VE KEPT OUR EYES FIXED ON THE FINISH LINE,

  • 00:22:44.290 --> 00:22:47.120
  • AND DOESN'T SAY ABOUT HEAVEN.
  • 00:22:47.130 --> 00:22:49.190
