It’s all about God by Pastor Ed Young
No. God devised an ingenious plan so we could get reinstated, so we could understand our value and dignity that we lost in the garden. He sent Jesus Christ—something we don’t deserve—to die on the cross for our sins. And because of Christ; because of God’s love and grace; because we have a freedom of choice, we can receive that and we can be brought back into a secure status with the Lord.
This passion for props that you have and I have; this deep yearning and burning desire for significance is all about God. That’s what it’s about. It’s about God. I want to matter. I want to have value. It’s all about God. Look up, vertically. “God, I see myself the way you see me.”
Then we have to surround ourselves with the right “they” to support that. Who are “they”? Take your cell phone out and just scroll through the names and the numbers. Are they the right “they” or not? I can predict your future; you can predict mine by looking at the names and calling numbers on our cell phones. It’s crazy. My primary props are from God and my secondary props are from others.
A while back I took a stress test. Have you ever taken one of those before? This technician led me into this room and he showed me this demonic device called the treadmill. He said, “Pastor Young, step on the treadmill, please.”
I said, “Okay.”
Then he hooked all these electrodes up with a blood pressure device, and he pushed the start button. I’m like, “Man, this is no problem. I mean we’re barely going.” I said, “This is it? Come on, come on.”
He said, “Just wait. I want you to walk Pastor Young until you drop, until you can’t go anymore.”© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Second Baptist
