Following Jesus Is About What You Give, Not What You Get

"Judas thought that following Jesus was about what he was going to get. So he went out and said to them what will you give me? She understood that following Jesus was about what she was able to give. That's why you see missionary biographies have always had the impact that they've had. Sadly, many of them have fallen into the catalog lists of out of print tales of another era. And one of the things that might be done is the on air thing of many of these old stories and good books so that the heroes of the past might become contemporary for a new generation. So that, for example, CT stud who gave up a fortune that was his by inheritance and went off to Africa with the story of the good news, his father had been converted. As a result of the visit of moody and sankey, his father was phenomenally wealthy and stud when at Cambridge, he played cricket for England, he was, it was far better than The Great Gatsby. That's where he lived. That was his whole experience. And he actually turned his back on all of that in order to go to Africa, but he gave away his fortune and kept some bite for his wife. His wife found out about it. She was really angry because he had given her a little poem. She was supposed to say in the morning with her devotion. She was supposed to say, dear lord Jesus, you are, to me, dearer than Charlie ever could be. He wanted her to understand that so that when he died, she would know that her best friend was Jesus. And she said, why do you keep all that money back for me? He said, well, I wanted you to be okay. She said, do you think that Jesus can only look after you? And he can't look after me, give my part away as well. And so they gave it to they gave it to general booth of the Salvation army. At what was the kingdom logic? Here it goes. This is CT stud. If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, then no sacrifice that I could ever make for him could ever be too great.

CVS Is Latest Company to Force Employees to Undergo Critical Race Theory Training

"Andrew, what else we got on the docket? Yeah. We got CVS and CRT. Now, this is a story that we have not covered on the Charlie Kirk show. So I'm excited for you guys to give us a little backstory. What the heck is going on at CVS? Well, what do you see the S is doing? Is diverting the heck a lot of dollars that could be better spent. I think the number I read was $600 million. They're putting into this program of educating 100% of their employees. The same kind of nonsense that's gone on at Salvation army. It's to overcome this alleged ingrained whiteness racism and they are going through all the CRT motions at CVS, which is for us is very difficult at psychopath because they have scored well for us. And now we'll have to put them under review. We're going to have to restore. But they've done a good alternative and but this is another example of corporate executives. Trying to appease the left, but the imagine that $600 million I believe is what I read, they're going to put into this training program for all of their employees. It's just an outrageous amount of money that could be better spent on salary or wage increases or benefits or return on investment to investors, but to use the money in this form and fashion and to be telling a very large percentage of their employees that you are inherently racist. You know, it's the same story just a different organization.

The Salvation Army's Sinister Attacks on Christmas in America

"Month. Salvation army, we did an entire episode on the Salvation army. There's some good news because they retracted their policy. I still think people should boycott them because I think that they're apologizing that they got caught. I don't think they're apologizing for the statement, but the rescinding of the statement was a win. Tell us what's going on with Salvation army. The nice people that are always ringing bells at Christmas. They've gone woke? Well, I personally I think they lost their Bible. I don't know where. I don't know what chapter or scripture of this particular behavior comes from, but yeah, they went full blown woke and it's just been well, I think what's equally troubling is as you just mentioned, how they responded to the criticism. You're right. I think they got caught. And then they apologized for an internal document becoming revealed publicly. I think the issue is, we need to demand that they disband this social justice committee. This is where the trouble comes from. They like the diversity office in the companies or ad hoc committees or formal committees are now. But to be asking Salvation army employees, these people who are out there ringing bells or responding to disasters to apologize for white racism, whether and if you don't feel like you're a white racer, said you got to apologize for everybody else who's white and is allegedly a racist. This is just racism at a that's exactly

"White House chief of staff, Ron klain promotes an op-ed saying that Donald Trump got much better media coverage than Joe Biden has. He tweeted out submitted for your consideration from The Washington Post opinion. The media treats Biden as badly or worse than Trump. Here's proof. And there is no proof in the midst of the article. Data analytics shows that Trump's first 11 months allegedly, Biden got much worse coverage. Well, first of all, Donald Trump wasn't overseeing one of the worst economic conditions in American history. He was overseeing one of the best economies in history. Therefore, you get at least somewhat better headlines because of that. The border wasn't wide open under Trump. It is now. And I could go

Joe Biden Delivers Bizarre Message About Bob Dole and QAnon

"Joe Biden did this bizarre Christmas message where he was trying to explain why things aren't happening the way they should, and he goes in this tangent, this meandering direction saying, well, it's because of QAnon and the extreme elements of the Republican Party. And Donald Trump, feeding the big lie for breakdown of friendly relationships between Republican and Democrat lawmakers. Play cut 6. I did Bob Dole's eulogy today. He asked me in his deathbed whether I would do his eulogy. We're Friends. We disagreed, but we were friends. We used to have an awful lot of that relationship. And there's still insist except that the QAnon and the extreme elements and Republican Party and what Donald Trump keeps sort of seems to me feeding the big lie. It makes it awful hard. And I think most Republicans, there's no thought of Republican Congress, I think would agree. It's a very important quote because basically what Biden is saying is, why is it that I can't get along with establishment Republicans like I did when Bob Dole was in office. And the reason is very clear it's because Republicans hoodwinked their voters and were perfectly fine doing deals with charlatans like you, Joe Biden. Set Republican parties have the Republican Party, at least the base of the party, we're awake now and has nothing to do with QAnon, whatever that is or the big lie. No, it has to do with, you know what? We're not okay with the adventurous endless wars in countries we can't pinpoint on a map. We're not okay with keeping our borders wide open and acting as if that is an act of diversity.

Kentucky Tornado Disaster: Act of God, Lack of God, or Climate Change?

"We want to start with our prayers and our action. We're going to be helping out in any way we can to any of the disaster relief to what happened in Kentucky over the weekend. Tornado ripped through 200 miles of Kentucky and 64 people dead 105 people missing awful tragedy. Now some people are saying, well, this is an act of God. Well, that's not my theology. Disaster, famine, strife. It's not an act of God. It's the lack of God in a world that creates such suffering. Now, of course, the other side can't help themselves. Immediately, almost instantaneously, while there are still over a 105 people missing in Kentucky, we now have people going all in saying that the reason why this is happening is because the climate is warming and even worse, it's because we have people that are trying not to admit that this is the greatest threat to human existence. Now, I'm not going to get into whether or not this tornado is something like anything we've ever seen before. There's plenty of scientific literature going back and forth. The fema directors come out and said that this is the new normal. The effects that we're seeing from climate change are the crisis of our generation. AJ plus says whether experts say the deadly tornadoes that hit Kentucky and nearby states were fueled by unusual heat and humidity. Fema's director says that such events are now the new normal.

Does the Left Actually Support Charity?

"What do you make of the Salvation army's decision to go this route? I think it's pretty simple calculus from what I've seen. Leftists will not participate with organizations that don't tow the line and spread their narrative. They just won't give them their money. They won't buy products from them.

And incidentally, the Salvation army has put out another statement sort of denying this. I've seen the study guide. They can try to spin it. I've read the guide. It does say we recognize that it's a profound profound challenge to sit on the hot seat and listen with an open heart to the herd and anger of the wounded. And incidentally, I don't want to be oblivious to people who are hurt by racism. I just don't think ripping down a statue fixes it. I don't think burning down at McDonald's is the answer. I don't think letting violent felons out under the streets is the solution. Call me crazy. And I don't want to apologize for something I have no control over. I shouldn't apologize. I shouldn't apologize for being white any more than somebody else should apologize for being black or Hispanic. Eurasian. Or whatever you are. Why do they do this?

They're arguing the new guide is meant to encourage discussion about racism. They denied that they attempt to indoctrinate, but here's what they say. The Salvation army has occasionally published study guides on various complex topics, including race to help foster positive conversations and reflection. The hope is that by openly discussing these issues, we can discourage a more thoughtful organization that is better positioned to serve those in need. They're not they're not they're not saying what you're saying, Manny. This is not one rogue person. Yeah.

"I know we shouldn't spend a lot of time on MSNBC personalities. But what the lieutenant governor elect of Virginia has done with one particular odious talking head over there, joy Reid is magnificent. This woman's story is astounding.

Got out of that challenge and that that pressure and that toughness and that hard life, U.S. Marine ran a women's shelter, served her state as a delegate now is elected. She's the number two elected official in the state of Virginia. First woman of color to hold that position, it's a magnificent story and joy read thinks Republicans like winsome shears are racists and white supremacists somehow, and dangerous. So yesterday I saw winsome Sears on Martha McCallum's show on Fox News. This, to me, sums up everything of this week, it sums up the collapse of the woke agenda. It sums up the this was a collapse of the this was a repudiation of the Biden agenda. We all know it. They know it. James carville knows it. A Democrat strategist been around forever, and he knows how the game is played. And he said, woke this is crushing and destroying the Democrat party. So I give you winsome shears on Martha McCallum show yesterday on Fox News with a very heartfelt challenge to one joy, read. You have to be willing to vocalize that these Republicans are dangerous. That this isn't a party that's just another political party that disagrees with a thumb tax policy. That at this point, they're dangerous. They're dangerous to our national security, because stoking that kind of soft. White nationalism. Eventually leads to the hardcore stuff. Your reaction to that, miss Sears. I wish joy Reid would invite me on her show. I'm let's see if she's woman enough to do that. I'd go in a heartbeat and we have a real discussion without joy. Speaking about me behind my back, if you will. She talks about white supremacy. Does she know that I ran against a white supremacist? I mean, joy, come on, get your facts straight.

Unfortunately all they see is another crazy vegan putting jack fruit on their plate in calling. It pulled pork when i asked her why she does this. She said we've all been raised to believe that. Sharing is caring. But i am not so sure. It always has a few organized. Religions send missionaries door to door to spread the word of god to recruit new members into their church and to offer. People another shot at salvation. Even the phrase sharing is carrying is a biblical reference often quoted but more often misunderstood the salvation army actually coined the term with a trademark in nineteen fifty guiding us all to share what we have with those who are less fortunate and that right there is the problem when it comes to offering food and shelter to those who have none. Sharing is a wonderful idea even holy if you must but for someone to preach to people who follow a different religion or none at all because they are seen as less fortunate and to do it under the guise of sharing is caring is anything but carrying loving or kind in that instance sharing his actually demoralizing. It's what non communication calls unsolicited. Advice is when someone with a superiority complex thinks they are helping those who are less fortunate or

The second of April seventeen seventeen thirty nine marked a significant day in the history of Christianity and it was on that day that John Wesley finally abandoned his reticence to preach outside the church and at King's Wood in Bristol. He took to open air. Evangelism Wesley's decision Asian brought him face to face with the common people and ignited a revival. The likes of which this country has never seen before. I may never see again regarding not great day. Wesley wrote in his diary. These words at four in the afternoon I submitted to be more vile. I love that. That's crazy man. I submitted to be more vile and proclaimed in the highways the glad tidings of salvation speaking from a little eminence in underground adjoining to the city to about out three thousand people the Scripture on which I spoke with this the spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor hair. Sent me to heal the brokenhearted to preach deliverance to the captives recovery of sight to the blind to set at liberty them that are bruised to proclaim the acceptable year of the lawsuit when Wesley finally abandoned the church approach to go and preach to the world to preach to the common people the portion of scripture that he chose to preach on. Was this passage that we're looking at this receiving subsequent history of course records that John Wesley lived out about text bringing the Gospel to the disenfranchised and to the needy masses of this country. Again if you know anything about ovation on me you know that the Salvation Army is as a grandchild of John Wesley. He's in our records he's in our DNA in the early days. At least our battle cry was for all the world in our early days offices went and appointed to call. They were appointed pointed to towns and they were that focus on those in spiritual and physical and emotional need in that community not not just on their congregation. So what's changed. Jesus still has that worldwide mission not sense of being for the world for our community not exclusively for Christians uh-huh and for the church. The question is if Jesus does do we whereas our our focus. It's lovely to come together. It's lovely to care and love each other as we do here to feel as if we're family. I'm we should never lose that. But Jesus came for those outside the family that should be why basingstoke core is here to we exist not for ourselves but for those outside of our doors for some reason which perhaps we will never fully understand this this side of heaven.

Our Holiness is a mobile holiness. It's not something we leave the doors when we leave here this evening we take it with us. It's a holiness cleanest that he's lived anywhere and everywhere.

Matthew Chapter Twenty Eight Verses Eighteen to twenty twenty where Jesus comes to his disciples and says all Party and Heaven and on Earth has been given to me go there for a make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the father and of the son of the Holy Spirit teaching them to observe all that I've commanded you and behold I am with you always to the end of the age. Jesus commanded his disciples and by extension his checks including ourselves to go and make disciples of all all nations to win the world for Jesus. Now if you know anything about the Salvation Army's history and I guess that most of you know in quite a bit about the salvation history then you know that. Our founders William and Catherine booth and their peers those Christian mission and in the Salvation Army in his early day early days took that great commission very very seriously they took it on. They run with it. So when the Christian mission changed its name to the Salvation Army in eighteen. Seventy eight William Booth who had become the general of the Salvation Army wrote in the Christian Mission magazine. These words the Christian mission has met in Congress to make war. It is organized the Salvation Army to carry the blood of Christ and the fire of the howdy ghost into every corner of the world. That's what he thought. The Salvation Army's purpose was to carry the blood of Christ and the fire of the holy. Any ghost into every corner of the world and Catherine Booth wrote around about the same time the decree has gone forth. Both the kingdoms of this world should become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ and he show rain. Who's right it is from the river to the ends of the Earth? We we shall win. It is only a question of time and then she wrote. I believe that this movement is to inaugurate the Great Final Final Conquest of our Lord. Jesus Christ she truly believed that the Salvation Army was going to be the movement inaugurated the Great Final Conquest of our Lord. Jesus Christ what do you think about that one on exactly. Why not because we we may say well? Let's Victorian arrogance to say that this movement is the one to inaugurate the Great Final Conquest of our Lord. Jesus Christ but they really believed it. They really believe there and from this conviction that they would be the ones that would inaugurate this great final conquest of our Lord. Oh Jesus Christ the growth of the Salvation Army mission in the world grew at breath taking speed and it only grew with that breath taking speed because God was with them and they truly believed that this was what was going to happen that they really would take Jesus easiest on his blood and fire the hardy ghost into every corner of the world but they would win the world for Jesus. How could they have that kind of conviction? How could they have that kind of confidence? Will they believed in God. He wanted to win the world for himself. John Three Sixteen says God so loved the world. It doesn't say for God also love Christians. For God's love the Church for God so loved some people and not others says for God so loved the world that he gave gave his only son whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. They knew that God's mission was for the world not just for the church which not just for the Salvation Army not just the Christians and that Jesus lived and died for the world. Not just for you you and for me. How did they know that? Because Jesus Christ said that throughout his ministry on this evening we're we're looking at the words that he said at the beginning of his mystery his mission and ministry. I was more difficult to saying. I thought I'll try that again this evening. We're looking at the words that he said at the beginning of his mission and Ministry Luke Chapter Four if you want to turn to do it in your Bibles Luke four verses fourteen to thirty and that's on page ten thirty one of our call bibles and if you remember to bring your copy of Grapevine and you'll you'll find some notes on the page to help you as we read these words together. So barrels can income and read Luke Chapter Four Verses Fourteen to thirty Jesus Return to Galilee in the power of the spirit. A news about tim spread throughout the whole countryside. He taught in the cynical and everyone preston. He went to Nazareth where he'd been brought up. And on the Sabbath Day he went into the synagogue.

He has sent me to proclaim freedom to Business under cover of sight for the blind to release the oppressed to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor. Then he rolled up the scroll gave it back to. The attendant sat down the ice of everyone in the synagogue. Functioned John Him and he began by saying to them today. This scripture is fulfilled in your hearing all spoke. Well of him were amazed at the gracious words that came from his lips. Isn't this Joseph. Suddenly Jesus Said said to them surely will quote this program to me. Physician heal the ill south to here in your hometown. What we pudge that? You didn't companion. I tell you the truth. He continued. No Prophet is accepted in his hometown. I assure sure you were many of those in Israel in the largest time when the skies was shots for three and a half years and there was a severe farming's route at lund yet.

"How much has changed in our lifetimes. That Moore has changed in the last fifty years and has changed in the thousand years before that pace of change seems to be getting quicker and quicker. Do you ever get tired of the pace of change. Do you ever think to yourself what I could just do it. Getting off the world for a moment and catching up catching my breath and catching up a little bit. Ah The pace of change today can make us feel like if everything's changing. Almost nothing standing still is moving at a faster. Doing foster pacing the prevailing culture of today is that we want bigger and better for me and for mine. Well it's our response. What's the salvation is response? Sometimes I think that salvation chaumet coal not this one of course their responses to retreat from the world to hide in citadels and to await. Jesus turn and let the change go on outside. There are some Salvation Army Corps who've become fortresses against against change inside of those core. They avoid the change. That's going on in the world and so those places has become places where nothing ever changes and woe betide the officer ever turns up and says what about moving the piano or a few chairs or how about if we change the times of the meetings. What about worship Band Catherine booth one of our founders said if we ought to better the future we must disturb the president if we are to better the future we must disturb the present and you know what she was only following God God and all of that because the Bible makes it clear that God wants change in Philippians chapter one verse six? Paul says I'm sure if this this that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of. Jesus Christ I want. That sounds like change good work. That's big begun in us. But that will keep changing and transforming US until it's completed on the day of Jesus Christ and inefficient chapter one verse nine to ten. Paul says is the golden makes known to us the mystery of his will according to his purpose which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of all time to unite all things things in him things in heaven and things on earth in other words the whole universe is moving towards being united in Christ all things in heaven and all things asks on earth that's why the world is always changing. God wants change in our lives. He wants changing our core and he wants to change in the world around us but for that he needs ever-growing ever-changing disciples. You are God's change agents then in the world around us. We're going to think about that in the context of our passage this evening from Luke Chapter Ten Verses Twenty five to thirty seven is a very well known. Passage is the story of the Good Samaritan but I think it has something to say to us about the change that God wants in ourselves. Let's listen to these words.

"All his people precious in the sight of the Lord is his faithful servants. Truly I am your servant. Lord I serve you justice my mother other did you have freed me from my chains. I will sacrifice a thank offering to you and call on the name of the Lord I will fulfill my vows to Lord in the presence of all his people in the courts of the House of the Lord in your midst Jerusalem Prize slowed. So there's a word word a name for God that is specifically translated as the Lord in this psalm in the RV translation. And if you look at the first four in the complete Jewish Bible we can see it clearly there but I called on the name of Adjani. Please add an I save me. That's the word the name for God and deny that is translated as the Lord in this song. It's a title of God and it talks. If God as director and Judge Director of the world and judge of his people the word at an ice speaks of God directing and controlling human actions by his word through the Bible through his spirit and his providence serves God director and Judge I don. I provides his laws in the Bible as guidelines for the ways days in which we should live our lives the Bible also reveals God to us he reveals we are anti reveals who reveals. Who got is what the Bible reveals to us is that we are the government? We are not the governor's as we are the government and Adonisi. God is the governor because we recognize all this from our second article of faith breath which as we know reads. We believe that there is only one. God who is infinitely perfect the creator preserve and governor. I Don I of own things and he was the only proper object of religious worship. But I don't know about you when we think of God's is being governor and judge we might well think of as a puppet master who controls everything and move things around on a board or however else you want to think about it but I don. I isn't. That kind of governor. Isn't that puppet master who simply directs human and actions like somewhat moving pieces around a Chesterton. Chessboard what this Psalm. What the Bible altogether reveals to us? Is that our governor at an eye. Our God is an intensely personal dot. He longs to be in relationship with you and we've made he's interested in each of us as an individual. The PSALMIST I says in verse two because he inclined his ear to me therefore I will call on him as long as I live. I Don I this governor. This judge turned his ear towards the PSALMIST. It's it's this idea of a personal relationship. With God's he was interested in his plight it was interested in what was going on in his life. At the time. God is my God he is your God. I'm not mean specific things for us because we are in relationship with adenoid with his God who longs to be our gods and who wants to be in relationship with us then we are never alone. Ev even when we feel at our loneliest we are never alone if you read Psalm. Twenty three for example. You will see that you are never alone. Let me read these words to you and see how many times you can pick out the personal pronouns. My I me see see how many times I mentioned some twenty three Assam David. The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside. I'd still waters he restores my soul. He leads me in parts of righteousness for his namesake sake. Even though I walk through the Valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil for you are with me me your Rod and your staff they comfort me you prepare a table before me in the presence of my Oy enemies you anoint. My head with oil my cup overflows surely goodness and mercy I see so follow me all the days of my life and I shall dwell in the House of the Lord forever. That's a picture of an intensely personal. God who is in relationship with US yes. He's added I yes. He's the governor of the world. Yes he is the judge of his people but he's an intensely personal God and because of that you are never alone. That's something to be thankful for isn't it. You are never alone God at an either. Hey the direct to the governor is with you. He's four you and he is yours. I hesitate to ask this question because I guess it's possibly not true but other any worries amongst us this evening anybody a warrior. Yeah a few maybe for the warriors amongst us. Maybe we should read Matthew Chapter Six verses twenty five to thirty four and since the security the Jesus wants to bring to our lives Jesus says therefore I tell you do not be anxious. It's about your life what you will eat what you will drink nor about your body. What you will put on is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds. Words of the they neither so nor reap gathering to bombs and yet your heavenly father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they. which if you you by being anxious can add a single our to Hispan- of life and why anxious about clothing consider these the field? How they grow they neither toil oil nor spin and I tell you even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of those but if God so clothes the grass of the field which he's alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven? Will he not much more clothing. You Oh you of little faith therefore do not be anxious saying what shall we eat or what shall we drink. What shall we wear for the gentiles? Seek after all these things and your heavenly father knows that you need them all but seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added to you therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow for tomorrow will be anxious for itself sufficient for the day is its own trouble. I don't know but maybe if sus was here today rather than two thousand years ago he might. What I've said is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the Spaniels us. They neither so will read nor gathering to bones. It's great having a dog I can tell you. He's always happy doesn't matter what's happening to him. He's never worried. He's never anxious because he knows his heavenly father provides for him. Maybe that's an illustration for us us today. God provides for US Avenue by the governor. The director of the universe knows what we need. I'm not to us day-by-day do not be anxious about tomorrow. That something to be thankful for I one of the Psalm that we're reading tonight. Says I love the Lord. I love of avenue I because he has heard my voice and my pleas. FA- Mercy God hears when you cry to him. God longs to be in your life and he will hear in an answer. You God longs to be involved in your life. He wants to be in relationship with you. He wants to give you the security and the comfort that you need so he you will hear your voice when you when you cry out to him when you call to him he will turn his ear to you because he loves you. The amazing thing about the Hebrew that's translated as heard in voice in this first because he has heard my. My voice includes the idea that God hears and answers the Psalmist. It isn't ingest here positively. But here's any onces. God doesn't simply listen to these people but he on system to Jesus expanded on this idea and luke eleven versus nine into eleven when he says and I tell you asked and it will be given to you not ask and your prayers will go somewhere got me through and nothing will happen to them. I tell you ask and it will be given to you seek and you will find knock and it will be opened to you for everyone who asks receives and the one who seeks fines and a one unto the one who knocks it will be opened longs to answer your press. That's a reason for Thanksgiving too. Is Nick God. Wants to bless you at an eye wants to bless issue. The governor the creator of the preserve off the universe wants to give you blessings upon blessings upon blessings. That is his nature he wants to patchy he wants to give you ten thousand reasons Why you would want to respond to him with Thanksgiving and so the psalmist reflects on this psalm? One hundred sixteen is his response and he encourages us to have the same response verses seventeen to nineteen says. I will offer to view the Serb the sacrifice of Thanksgiving and call on the name of the Lord. I will pay my vows to the Lord in the presence of his people in the courts of the House of the Lord in your midst. Oh Jerusalem praise the Lord when you look back on this year yeah twenty nine thousand nine. My hope and prayer for all of you is that you can find something perhaps many do things but at least one thing something that you can thank God for a number of us have had a really difficult a year and we find ourselves still in difficult circumstances and when we find ourselves in difficult circumstances sometimes those negative feelings are what's to the forum we can't really see beyond there's but I hope and pray that there's something one thing that we can thank God for and if we see that if we see the ad on I is for us that he longs to be in relationship with us that he doesn't want to leave us alone that he wants to be with us that he wants to take our anxieties and our worries on to turn those around that he wants to bless us. I think the only thing that we can do is to respond Thanksgiving and praise. Just think around life if you receive Z.. Praise and appreciation for something. That you've done. I guess you feel pretty good dining alistair this morning was going to arrange for ten of you turn up with a cup of coffee for me at the end of the meeting because I said that was the most encouraging thing that happened on Sunday morning didn't quite pull it off but actually i. I appreciate being appreciated when you received praise on appreciation. You feel good well. God loves to when we show him appreciation when we show him Thanksgiving when we show him gratitude he loves it. He loves opposite when we express praise and Thanksgiving to him. Our praise and Thanksgiving makes him smile so we can praise God for who is. Maybe that's where we start. We start with these nature. Thank you God for Pu you up. Thank you that you are the governor of the universe that you are provider you are judge are merciful. Judge each thank you for the work that you ask your son to do on the cross as we thought about this morning we can praise God for who he is. We can praise God for what he's done in our lives. We can acknowledge that as people of Christ's covenant as members of his family in control of our lives and will work all things for goods and for his glory. Ori- I'm when we find that note of Thanksgiving praise that echo of the music of Thanksgiving as we say in our first song then then like the psalmist go public with it. Our friends our neighbors. Our families our work cally our community. I need to know how much God has done for us. And how grateful we are not will be a way of drawing them to God's and the salvation. It's not my call. We call we call this testimony testimony our knowledge and experience of God should shine through our lives. Shine nine through our testimonies and draw the people into our flow of praise and Thanksgiving. So that's why we're going to spend the rest. Most of the evening practicing testimonies sharing his Bible versus that speak to us because if they speak to plus we can help and speak to other people sharing the songs in the stories that describe our faith but are testimonies are not just for in here here. They great to share together because hopefully they encourage us a stir up as we thought of this morning to encourage other people and to encourage each other but are testimony has to be taken out there. To God's power has been demonstrated in our lives is that right. God's power has been demonstrated in our lives and so we must worship. I'm Shannon worshiped with others as our response. Because that's really the only way that we can repay God's faithfulness faithfulness to us. There's nothing else that we can do to repair. It and God knows that. In fact he doesn't expect us to repay it he knows all limitations imitations and frailties as human beings as we thought about in Psalm. One I three all yards is that we express us now. Thanks and gratitude three worship. So let's do that this evening..

You will help us to live our lives that you will encourage us that you will challenge us to live our lives in ways that worship so that our lives may be ones are ones of of worship to you. Holy God we are these pres- in your name how passage saving visions chapter four and chapter four four verses. Seventeen to thirty two if you want to find that in your bibles now if you're using one of us. It's on page and Lebanon seventy-five Fijian's chapter four verse. Seventeen seventeen to thirty two and if you picked up a set of message notes when you came in then they will help you as we go through this passage together. I want to start with a nice big question. What is the Salvation Army? What is the Salvation Army? Why does the Salvation Army exist? What's its purpose? I also that because sometimes I look at the salvation particularly in the Western world. and I wonder if we're not in a crisis of identity that we don't know what the Salvation Army's that we're not quite clear on in ways that perhaps we used used to in our very early days we were most definitely a radical Christian movement that called people to Jesus radical way of living and just think about our early days. We actually had the brass neck. Do use up phrase down here next year. That's good. We have the brass neck back to go to the poorest places of Victorian London to go to the gutters to go to those Victorian slums and we have to brass neck to say eight to those people the people who are marginalized and on the fringes of our society you can be saved and you can live a radical holy me life you can live a life of radical discipleship unholy living but when I look could our recent history in Western world. I wonder if we're prepared just to settle for complacency when we we compare ourselves to our early forefathers have we just settled for complacency for the last forty or so years we seem to have been content in just to become another institutionalized church. We've we've worked hard to become just another denomination and we've become enlarged pie are very well loved and well supported charity whenever I go out and collect or stand collecting people. Paul always say we love the Salvation Army always prepared to give to the Salvation Army. Sometimes it looks as though we're barely Christian Social Services Agency ED prepared to deliver a very high level of professional social service help. But sometimes when we've done that we've downplayed our faith and we've been unwilling to help those that we've helped seek help with their spiritual journey as well as with their physical and emotional needs. What's I wonder sometimes if we simply expected out decline the you know the way the trajectory that we're on particularly in the the Western world is just the way that is that we content just to Peter out until we simply cease to exist? Maybe we think think. Limited lifespan is simply inevitable as far as the Salvation Army's consent. Well I believe that. That's not our only option. How about you? I believe. That's not our only option. Jesus is still calling the Salvation Army to be credible followers Of his where the Salvation Army has become dry and dull. I still believe that those dry bones can live where we become lukewarm. I believe in the Holy Spirit can ignite US and direct us once more where there are salvation in this core and elsewhere who's holiness is dying for lack of oxygen. I believe the Holy Spirit can breathe new life into them do. Do you believe that there is still time for the Salvation Army and for Beijing. Cortin live out. Its calling as a vital movement kind of compassionate APP committed followers of Jesus and already see around me I see compassionate followers and committed followers of Jesus business living out their lives are salvation is around me all the time. So how can we ensure that we are the radical cool disciples that Jesus still needs today. We'll eat versus from a vision chapter four. I think can help us. And he is going to come common read versus seventeen to thirty two..

"Of God around then how are we any different to anyone else in the world Christian shouldn't blend in like everyone else that doesn't necessarily mean that we need to stand up. Stand out like psalms either but we must be different if we want to make a difference. Jesus makes that clear the second metaphor that Jesus says invites to think about us as disciples in a gathered have a community salting about us being scattered as individuals but the second metaphor of light is about what it's like when we come together. There is a gathered community when we come together as a call. Here's another way to put. It says Jesus Invest Fourteen. You're here to be light. Liked bringing out the gold colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We're going public with this as public as a city. The on a hill light helps us to see things. Rick Warren Patched over in America says that the most important light in his. He's house isn't the one in the kitchen isn't a one is lounge. It's the one at the top of the stairs the night light. That stops him stubbing his toe when he has to get out of lead in the middle of the light. I'll leave you to guess way gets out in the middle a bed in the middle of the night. That's the most important light and his house. Why because it brings Helps him to see things. Avoid stubbing his toe light is a kind of energy that enables us is to see colors. We can see in color because of light. It helps vegetation to grow. It provides solar power for energy and it can be focused for particular specific targets tasks like a laser and like light. Jesus tells us as a core as a a community of gathered. Christians gathered Christian community. That are overreaching. Purpose is to be a mirror. That reflects God's light so that all people people can know God and his Justice and His grace. That's why we're here. So this or is like the light that God Jesus talks about when it engages with others in our community when it brings light to a dark and broken world when we go to those dark places in our community and Ban the light of Christ when we go and we show show most clearly what Christ is like and so as a gathered community. This is us all together. We should be careful not to hide our light under a bucket as Eugene Peterson. Paraphrase it by being quiet when we should speak out this morning. We thought about modern slavery anti human trafficking. We are called to talk out and to speak out about those kinds of injustices to let God's like shine on a God colors in this world. We must be careful not to hide our light by going along with the the crowd by denying the truth. By letting Sinn whether that's corporate sin did you realize that. Salvation Army SIDDONS. Yeah we get it wrong. Sometimes we seen an individual's we as individuals we seen. We mustn't let sin and dim our witness for Christ put the light out and we must be careful not to hide our light by not explaining the good news to others and ignoring the needs of those around us. Jesus says this core must be a beacon of truth rather than shutting out the light. Why is a purpose for that as well versed sixteen has the last verse in the same way? Let your light shine before others so that they may see your good works and on give glory to your father who is in heaven we do it not for our own glory we do it not for the plaudits or anything like but we do it so that it gives glory to your father who is in heaven. The mission of this core of every salvation EST is to live out L. holiness in the world as a call we do that by valuing those on the margins of society by caring for those who who suffer loss by seeking to do justice by showing mercy and grace by having integrity by being peacemakers. Oh My my word. This world needs peacemakers at the moment. Doesn't it so much strife so much division including from Christians actions and after admit there are times when I've not been a pace AK- but we shine our light eight. We show our mission in the world we are a family on a mission when we are peacemakers am I'm by courageously standing up for what we believe. That's what it means to be a family on mission as a core as a community as individuals goals we live our holiness and the world we live out our mission our belief that Jesus is Lord just in the ordinariness of life. Most of us aren't cold to great things to great missions. If you are that's great say yes and go but actually most of us have simple everyday routines hands up if you know what you're doing tomorrow already. Yeah pretty much all of us because we just everyday routines the life of of ordinary an ordinary. I wish I practice this this out loud ordinariness simple everyday routines that's easier to say and those around US Masih transformed life in our everyday activities if we're not called to great mission if we're not called do something big big for gold then the only way that people around us are gonNA see. I'm trying to school. Life is in those everyday routine activities so when we come across those who eli even though they don't really mean to when we come across those who cheat just to get ahead when we come across those who are the ones that they love the most then and we must show them. The Cure for their sin is to know who they are in got just being in Salt and light everyday routine activities when we come across those who self centered when we come across for those who care about no one else but themselves those who seem to be permanently focused on their mobile phones. You see them. I hope you're not one of them. But you see them in our community unity if you don't have a mobile phone well-done if you come across those curse like a washerwoman all those who think thing that their world is their own personal playground those who drive like maniacs. I hope there aren't any of those in here. Then we must show by our lives that we are different. Do we respond to those people like occur like do we show our lives that we are different. What is your response to those kind of people like for like or d showed our lives are different because we are called to be salt and light in the world in the Holy Spirit strength and my experiences only in the Holy Spirit strength? Can we be polite and respectful particularly if you come across someone who's not polite or not respectful. We can only do in the Holy Spirit strings. We can refuse to ridicule a player on the opposing team. I'm city went that bad last night. Back Yard City just happened to be better. We can give the best possible service to our our clients and our customers. We can teach our students the best that we can. We can be courteous. We can be considerate. We can be willing to serve.

"If nations chapter four commencing Verse Twenty Five therefore each of you must put off false hurt and speak truthfully from the to his neighbor for we are all members of one Balti- annual anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go done while you are still angry and do not give the devil told he who has been stealing. My must steel no longer but must work doing something useful with his own hands that he may have something to share. Share with those in neat. Do not let any on wholesome talk. Come out of your mouths but Tony. What is helpful? Four building up this up. According to their needs that it may benefit those who listen and do not grieve the holy early spirit of God with whom were sealed for the day of freedom should get rid of all bitterness rage and anger got rolling slant along with every form of malice be kind and compassionate to one another forgiving each other just as in in Christ gold forgave you be imitators of God therefore still children and live a life of love just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God amon. Thank you have a look at those versus in your Bible if you have it be great if you did. have it. Be Good if we were looking at. God's Word together have look those verses. What do they look like doc? I glance they might look like a set of rules. There's a whole list of things that you shouldn't do and then a whole list of things that you should do instead but it's not really a set of rules because has the key comes in the two versus before the passage that we started reading versus twenty three and twenty four visions chapter four. You'll find those in your message. Notes Paul says put off your old self which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful rule desires and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds. The key to this passage is that believers arte put put off the old self that to strip away the old self so that God can give them their new self. We go from the old self to the new self when we're baptized by the Holy Spirit. That's really what we talk about. That's what we really signify on symbolize. His when we put on our Salvation Army Uniform House ovation. I'm a uniform is useful in lots of ways but the biggest thing is that they they are a symbol of the fact that we've taken off our old lives we've stripped off our old lives and we have put on our new life baptized by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit kills off our old self and raises us us with Christ into the new life when we are baptized by the Holy Spirit we are reborn by the Holy Spirit Parrot. We renounce the forces of darkness and we embrace the Kingdom of light the habits of our old self no longer have control over us because we've stripped off and we've put on our new life. The Holy Spirit empowers us to resist the evil powers. How is of the world and gives us the motivation to put our whole trust in Jesus Grace and love? So can you see now that this passage is not a set of rules to follow things that you shouldn't do and things that you should do. It's not like the cub scouts or the brownies where we get a merit badge whenever we take one of these off. I'm not I'm not talking any me falsehoods anymore. Tick speaking truth with my neighbor tick. I'm not angry angry. I don't let the sun go down on my anger. Take haven't given an opportunity to the devil take. It's not that kind. Aww List living the holy life is not like collecting merit badges as a as a scout or Brownie and by the way since we're in a salvation army meeting can I just say the soldiers covenant is just the same the soldiers covenant is not a titlist list of rules to follow things to do when things not today and I say that because in my interactions with salvation is here in this core and elsewhere in the salvation army world. It seems that sometimes. That's what we reduce the soldiers covenant to another set of rules and regulations to follow. It isn't both this passage in a Fijian's and our soldiers covenant marks of the new life given to us when we're baptized by honey spirit when we take off our old selves and we put on new selves. God puts this way baptized by the Holy Spirit. Then this passage and our soldiers covenant is what our lives begin to look like. We're a new creation if we're a new creation than we cannot go back back to being our old self. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is not some kind of make ova paper over the cracks and hope that things will last. It's replacing one old self with a completely new self. The old all self is cast away and we focus on new life instead of turning back to the ways of death so so Paul says in this passage that when God gives us new life if we told lies in our old self the now we tell the truth if we had a tendency to be angry in our old life well then now we seek the peace of God's not as a take list to put because that's a mark of the new life that God has given us if we're a thief than we stop stealing and we look at ways of sharing doing what we have with those around some working honestly with our hands if our talk is unwholesome in our old self than when we take that often we strip off allow God to put new life into us then we start encouraging people and so on. This is what this passage is about. It's not list. It's the way life begins to look when we're baptized by the Holy Spirit and God gives us. He's new life. So what's our part in this hour. These verse one of Chapter Five Life if you want to memorize some scripture this week then this might be the verse to memorize. It's only one two three four five six seven eight words long. That's quite good for memorization. I think Paul says therefore be imitators of God as beloved children. That's our part therefore be imitators of gold is beloved children say with May therefore be imitators of God as beloved children therefore be imitators of God as beloved children like the small child in our video learns the way of life by imitating his parent so we learn Holy Life by imitating being got and we imitate God by simply following his example in his son. Jesus Christ on emulating his character in our lives. How many times have we send in the words of John Gallons down there in your message notes? I'm from southern number. Three hundred twenty eight to be like Jesus. This hope possesses me in every thought and cree undead. This is my aim my creed to be like Jesus. This hope possesses me his spirit helping me lie a came. I'll be. I'm afraid to sermon isn't rocket signs. Just take those middle lines if each and every one of us really really allowed going to grow in us that we could say in every thought and this is my aim mike create then we would be like Jesus that's just logic his net. It's not rocket science. It's logic in every thought. Indeed this is my a Mike creed to be like. Jesus if that was really what we wanted to do then we would be like Jesus. A disciple of Jesus longs to live the holy life. He or she is a student fully committed to imitating tasting their teacher. We read about Jesus in the Bible. Not Justin Oh more about him but in order to imitate him. I'm because of our relationship with God through Jesus Christ and the power given to us by the Holy Spirit we become godly characteristics An obedient cycles. In the way relief later we read about Jesus unlearn his example. But we also read each other. Have you noticed that we also so read each other you see. It's not enough to read about Jesus in the Bible and seek to put and then seek to put his example into practice because if we think about the analogy of the young child.

"If you'd like to turn to the evening's main passage we're looking at a Fijian's chapter four Fijian's chapter four starting at Verse Twenty Five and we're going into chapter five in verse two if you're using one of our bibles on page eleven. Seventy six eleven seventy six fees in chapter four verses twenty five to trump to five I to pray together. Jesus we come together this evening as a people who declare corporately and individually you load on. We declare our willingness US and wish and desire to live a harley life. We ask that through through the words that you will speak to us this evening. You will help us to live that hardy life better day by day so that we become more and more like you and we all sees praising your name so over the last few few weeks when I've been here we've been thinking I've said about this. This early Christian Dogma this early Christian creed this early Christian expression of faith. Jesus is Lord. And we've been thinking about what that means when Christians and salvation EST say Jesus this is Lord. What we reminded ourselves in? The past few weeks is that there isn't just a belief we don't just say we believe that Jesus is Lord but that in in saying Jesus is Lord that lives that brings us to a particular way of life that our lives say. Jesus is Lord and the way that we live day by day it means a life of obedience and surrender to him a holy life a life of holiness sinus and so our Salvation Army's tenth article of faith or doctrines. If you look at a message notes if you picked up on the way this evening say we believe that. It the privilege of all believers to be holy sanctified and their whole spirit soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord. Jesus as Christ what does that doctrine. Meanwhile does that article of faith mean well not is first of all that it says that it is the privilege of all believers leave us not of some believers but all believers and so all believers are called to be holy a sanctified and that their whole spirit soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord. Jesus Christ it says it's a privilege privilege but it's not privileged in the sense of. We often say society that there are some privileged people who are rich and have been given everything in life and then there are some that are not privileged when we talk about privilege in this article of faith we mean but it is a free the an undeserved gift from God. That's what it means to be a privilege. So we don't mean that there are some holy Christians and some unholy Christian questions. You don't believe in unholy Christians. Do you know if you're a Christian. Then it is the privilege of all believers of Air Free Christian to be holy to live the holy life. It's clear through his teaching and three poles else teaching as well. Look this evening that Jesus really intends to make every believer a radical follower that we should be his holy people holy living was always the plan. It wasn't just about getting people saved wasn't just about Out Jesus dying on the Cross to save us but that we should live a holy life afterwards so we need to know if that was always a plan what is is it. What is hardly living? Well it's to be like got holy. Living is to be like God now. I could leave the sermon here and we can say yes. We all agree with that and that would be fun. We could all go home. I'm not going to living a holy life means to be like God to imitate Gods. Now have you ever noticed how children imitate adults. Yes those of your parents will have noticed how children imitate adults. It's a way of learning in fact. Probably the main way that they learn just as a reminder have a look at a screen three.

He wants to adopt us into his family so we can truly know him as father.

And there's no real concern about those in the group they can't keep up. They might say something like it's their responsibility and they just coats coldly two straight ahead in this way for a Kalita becomes weary rowing straightening process and sadly for some people that seem each of how they will be walking with God but perhaps we can think tentatively they of Family Group working together passes a caring parents walking the path with the charge. Notice how they slow the pace to allow the child to keep up they hold hands to encourage them to keep going and they're constantly watching for any problems and has its on the most difficult patches they may even been down and carry the youngster if if we come to know God through Jesus this is the image that most accurately describes how we can walk with God not only does God rescue the US forgive us and the doctors for its not being mistreated by being rescued by an emergency service. I mean put back on the way and told the wave of the hands you on your own now but God does not just rescue us Sir we can. I sounds back into a Michigan. He's also there to guide us as we walk with him. It causes I e by leading. He gives us his word. The Bible this guy on the way we went back to the book of Exodus we would see how. Oh God digitally guided these right people out from Egypt. He led them through the Wilderness of Sinai with crown by and a pillar of fire by night. That really is most dramatic way of God leading groups and we don't expect that but perhaps to think about psalm. Twenty three in the first three verses this is it says this the Lord is my shepherd I have all the time I need. He lets me rest in Green Meadows. He leads me beside peaceful streams he renews. Here's my strength. He guides me long pass bringing honor to his name. This gives us the picture of shepherd going ahead with the sheep falling falling behind confident in the shepherd skills to keep us safe in hebrews thirteen. The final prayer describes Jesus as that great shepherd of the sheep and in John. Fourteen verse six. Jesus himself saying I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me and the how spirits has taken on this role of continuing to lead us. We are told about it in John Chapter Sixteen and he says but when the spirit the truth comes he will guide you into orchard with the Holy Spirit. Is there for each one of us to guide US and help us. And when situations RECON CON protects us the next verse Psalm. Twenty three verse four says even when I walked through the Darkest Valley I will not be afraid for for you close beside me your thoughts and your staff protect and comfort me. God Is there whatever the situation we Ronan something or the footprints in the sand poem we know how some point there were two sets of feet walking together and the footprints could be seen and then suddenly one footprints disappears and we know that that is the point when we most need supports goat is carrying us so of course no guarantee of trouble free life but while we may not be protected from trouble we are protected through trouble.

Emit imagine that was driving down some Chris wrote someone suddenly raves.

Some some do Atari screening u-turn while this would do allegedly three point turn only some cases five or seven point. Turn the speed and the dramatic Mesic. Nature is not important important. Point is to turn around and start heading in the right direction. The book that I read by J John Finishes with Attack Chapter entitled the Way Ahead Tries to give us some guidance on continue to walk successfully with God by considering the past the the presence and the future in terms of looking back at the past we must have the right outlook to a full accepted forgiveness and forgiven others. It might be that. The scars of the past nine but the runes themselves got healed secondly we should allow the past to give us warnings to see where weaknesses loy join and take action to prevent repetition of the same troubles and then as we consider the presence. These was some guiding principles that it gives us as a Christian. The privilege of having the Pastel so we can concentrate on walking the president. We must walk with God day by day just one day at a time each day making a deliberate efforts to walk with him. We need to try to distinguish between feeling and fact pilots highlights may frequently have to fly plane. We're near the sky nor the ground can be seen sometimes hopefully find your short duration will commit God. My seem like this but don't panic. Panik keep going in faith never postponed. What must be done? Don't fall ourselves at some time in the future. Everything will be perfect and then we come up with God. In the meantime doing nothing starts continual with God today and everyday we need to work at walking with God. Keep up with Your Life Your Bible reading your worship and fellowship with other Christians. The Christian life is like riding a bike the one guaranteed way of falling off is is to stop then expect the way to get easier. They're always new challenges new things to learn a new issues to face a good parents got delights in stretching his children children stay limits. Be careful of trying to take shortcuts. Most of the time we'll come with God involves making slow and steady progress. One step at a time the way of God is often described in the Bible as the Straits path and there are no shortcuts on a straight vote we need to seek. Companions is on the way we need to spend time with other Christians. We need to watch our step to think are we acting justly dooby love kindness nece really walking humbly with God and finally.

"If if you are a member of a specific political party then you are expected to vote for that policy and not another party. Just just ask Allison Campbell. What happens if you do in someone finds out or another one is you might? You're not allowed to lend your card to another person so for example technically speaking if you have a national trust membership card. You're not allowed to give that to another person to actually use twenty buildings and asset however being a member gives you certain rights and privileges so more national trust God lets me Free International Trust Properties and let me park in their grounds okay and then the Iq the Kea card. If I turn on certain days I can get a free free coffee in their restaurant but not weakens understand. So if we are members of God's family and to be accepted fully into God's family than we must acknowledge God as our heavenly father and laughing in John Chapter Fourteen Verse Twenty Three. We read reweight removed. Jesus words saying that if we love him we obey his teaching. We will do this. Not Fear. But but south bluff so are being in God's family and obeying his teaching God gives us the promise of term life with him read in John Chapter Fourteen versus twenty five twenty seven. He says these things. I've spoken to you while I'm still so we but the helper the holy spirit whom the father will send in. My name will teach you things and bringing to remembrance of all the odds set the pace. I leave if you my peace I keep to you not as the world gives to you. Let's not let not your heart be troubled. Neither let them in the frame let them be. Are you afraid. And in some translations I know the Holy Spirit is actually referred to as the comforter which is probably even a better word so in the old chessmen the people had to rely to some extent on the words of the Prophets Spring Comfort to them and I had also most of the time had to see with their own eyes. Miracles being performed cyclope leaving God only a few individuals filled. We've got spirit for example. Tehran me we read Joe Joshua being filled with the spirit however we members of I've got family and got children members whose family Jesus told us the promised us that we will be filled his spirit. What Jesus did not say and I think sometimes we do tend to forget this is that why not be a bread of roses? Jesus I did not promise that nothing bad will happen to us and everything will be easy and present in fact John Fifteen. We read that Jesus says they are persecuted it million they will persecute you so to summarize. We are members of God's family because we love and obey him he he acknowledges that by knowing our names and sending his Holy Spirit toss his spirit he guides and comforts suss either directly using the words. He's word in the Bible or by using other Christians by prompting. Some coming onsite site. US be to us what we require of him that day as I mentioned at the beginning all these folks came initially because I was thinking of songs the song and we're now going to listen to that song and the key words words in this song are do not be afraid I am with you and I love you for your mind while this is playing out. L. Price Place of prayer is open. And if you'd like to come and ask God for his comfort blessing. Please do so ways if you want to talk to God on on your own brings something in your hand or if you're not twelve coming out but still like to talk to them quite welcome to do that in the we listened to this song.
