Think Upon the Cross | 2017 Fellowship Conference

  • 0:06 - 0:08
    Think, brethren,
  • 0:08 - 0:13
    think upon the cross.
  • 0:13 - 0:16
    Think upon this love
  • 0:16 - 0:19
    until you feel what Paul felt;
  • 0:19 - 0:23
    until you feel its constraining influence.
  • 0:25 - 0:26
    When God saves a person,
  • 0:26 - 0:28
    He puts something in you
  • 0:28 - 0:30
    in the very innermost part of your being -
  • 0:30 - 0:32
    there's something there
  • 0:32 - 0:35
    that loves God and loves righteousness.
  • 0:35 - 0:37
    And it may be ever so weak,
  • 0:37 - 0:39
    but you find something inside of you
  • 0:39 - 0:41
    that's saying, "I do love God,"
  • 0:41 - 0:43
    "I want God!"
  • 0:43 - 0:44
    That's a miracle!
  • 0:44 - 0:46
    He takes out the stony heart,
  • 0:46 - 0:48
    and He puts in a living heart
  • 0:48 - 0:49
    that loves God;
  • 0:49 - 0:50
    that wants God.
  • 0:50 - 0:53
    He came and took the curse of the law,
  • 0:53 - 0:54
    says Galatians 3,
  • 0:54 - 0:55
    on Himself,
  • 0:55 - 0:57
    so that the death penalty
  • 0:57 - 0:58
    that you and I deserve
  • 0:58 - 0:59
    was poured out on Christ,
  • 0:59 - 1:01
    so that that death penalty
  • 1:01 - 1:02
    is no longer there to be had
  • 1:02 - 1:03
    because it's been,
  • 1:03 - 1:05
    as our brother said yesterday,
  • 1:05 - 1:08
    paid in full.
  • 1:09 - 1:11
    If we're going to persevere to the end,
  • 1:11 - 1:14
    we all must be constantly,
  • 1:14 - 1:16
    continually, and pointedly
  • 1:16 - 1:18
    looking at Jesus Christ,
  • 1:18 - 1:21
    and removing anything from our lives
  • 1:21 - 1:24
    that distracts this view right here.
  • 1:24 - 1:25
    You follow Christ.
  • 1:25 - 1:27
    You stay focused on Him,
  • 1:27 - 1:29
    and don't let people -
  • 1:29 - 1:30
    even those you love the most -
  • 1:30 - 1:33
    distract you from steadfast,
  • 1:33 - 1:35
    single-eye obedience.
  • 1:35 - 1:38
    What is that to you, Peter?
  • 1:38 - 1:40
    You follow Me.
  • 1:40 - 1:42
    Brethren, remember what it was like
  • 1:42 - 1:48
    to be a lost sinner.
  • 1:48 - 1:51
    I tell the truth in Christ.
  • 1:51 - 1:53
    I am not lying.
  • 1:53 - 1:55
    My conscience also,
  • 1:55 - 1:57
    bearing me witness,
  • 1:57 - 1:59
    in the Holy Spirit,
  • 1:59 - 2:00
    that I have great sorrow
  • 2:00 - 2:03
    and continual grief in my heart.
  • 2:03 - 2:05
    For I could wish
  • 2:05 - 2:08
    that I myself were accursed from Christ
  • 2:08 - 2:10
    for my brethren, my countrymen,
  • 2:10 - 2:12
    according to the flesh
  • 2:12 - 2:15
    who are Israelites.
  • 2:15 - 2:19
    Remember the pit that
    you've been dragged from.
  • 2:19 - 2:21
    Christ shed His blood for you;
  • 2:21 - 2:25
    in your behalf.
