"soren kierkegaard" Discussed on Agape Baptist Church | Scottsboro, Alabama

"Well, thank you so much to Jason and Reagan Jackson for leading Us in worship tonight. I know that you were blessed by that and we look forward to maybe one day in the future having them here with us on a Sunday morning to lead worship God as you can imagine. They are tied up on Sunday mornings leading worship at their home church. And so we're just happy to see students raised here at Agape using their gifts for the glory of God. And so thank you Jason off for being obedient to the ward and and thank you Justin and Shannon for for raising such Godly young men. So tonight we're going to finish up our Series in the Book of Judges is and one of the reasons that we have moved tonight's message online instead of doing it on a Sunday morning is honestly as hard as some of the other package have been to preach in the Book of Judges these these chapters record some of the most awful events in the entire Old Testament and the very very saddening birth. Is my heart that the people of Israel were caught up in such Grievous sin. We talked a lot throughout the Book of Judges about forgetting God about that which we don't intentionally remember namely the mercies of God what he's done for us. We will unintentionally forget and that's truly where Israel is we mentioned this past Sunday that we are called to Heed These Warnings from the Old Testament to receive these negative examples and then to go forward in the power of the Holy Spirit informed by the word following Jesus to find a life Israel is not finding life in in these chapters. And so our call track night is to recognize some of the Eternal truths that can be found out of the Book of Judges out of these very hard chapters. And one of the ways that we can do that is by recognizing that Satan has no new strategies that that that really Humanity has. No new Temptations in one sense, even with all of our technological advances with with how different the world looks now versus the the way it looked in the Book of Judges that really the the sin struggles are no different. And so I think it's because of that that philosophers Soren Kierkegaard said that life is is lived forwards but it's understood backwards. You see God has given us the privilege of being able to learn from the mistakes of the past whether it be our mistakes or the mistakes of the people throughout the Old Testament and we've looked at these mistakes all throughout the Book of Judges. We've seen this cycle of sick and suffering that perpetuates until their surrender and then God brings Salvation And as we come to Judges chapter eighteen, the last judge in the Book of Judges Samson has died down. And the narrative is Switched and I hope you'll write down these two verses write down Judges chapter 13 verse 1 and then write down Judges.

"Know, sometimes when we're in a period of time in our life where the work that we're doing is not seen as ministry, right so often example in your case, when you were in journalism and mass media there. There's a tendency to say well a person may be a Christian doing that, but that's not Ministry. Or other fields, like when when I when I did landscape design, you know people could say you were not in Ministry when you were doing landscape design. Well, you know, this is how we talk about these kinds of things and so I'm curious about during that period of your life when you weren't clear about where necessarily. God was taking you or what God was calling you to do, but you knew that you trusted God and that you were following God. How did those two things you're you're trusting God and following God and being a follower of God dovetail and find expression when you were in mass media. Am I love that question? I love the quote life is lived forward but understood backward. Mhm. Yes. Because Soren Kierkegaard, yes. Yes, and I'm a big fan you are yes, and just to him by dr. Robert Smith Jr. Beeson Divinity School, okay with our prophetic Pastor decent and personal pastor and it's those words of keeping guard that to me express my life story. Hm because I sincerely could not answer that in my twenties because I didn't have the foggiest idea what God was up to its not until late thirties and early forties that I started being able to see. Oh, I see how those dots are connecting, you know, you're growing up in your parents are hard on you for all the right reasons and you think I just can't wait to graduate and get out of here. I want to go to church so much. I don't want to do what they say. I don't want to have devotional time. I don't want to make you think that heaven guess. I know I had that feeling so Too many other people now. I'm very thankful for that. They were the birthplace of my value system. But at that time I didn't appreciate parents that were present and that were saying know you can do better than a c I know I know you're you're being lazy. You're not putting in the hard work you can do this. Now if you did a c and that was your best we were chill out on you, but we know you're capable of doing better. I'm I'm so now I'm thankful. They didn't allow us to be lazy. But what what struggles they did understand that some of us would make all ages and some of us wouldn't home, uh, but back to your question. People started asking me to contribute to books. in my thirties and I just started seeing that that's Ministry and it was different than what I was used. To Ministry looking like for example, I'm growing up as the daughter of a pastor that people respect and living in a gigantic fish bowl that people are always looking in life, which is a hole in the pocket. Yes, but because of the nature of his gifts and Ministries and my mother's I saw ministry as being a premature being a pastor being a mentor to pastors and pastors wives and being an evangelist and being a founder of a Ministry and Ministry Conference that that was what I saw Ministry beating the older. I became the more I saw it's also what I saw through their lives empowering others to find their gifts and to walk in it. And then I saw okay, we all have we all have a gift that is the answer to some life question. And so I started praying. What is that for me guide? I know you put me here for something and and writing kept being two things that I was drawn to do that I love to do and that I am being invited to do. So, it's like bing bing bing bing. Yeah. Yeah, your purpose is what makes you wake up early in the morning and go to bed late. It's what you love to do whether you pay it or not. And I'm thankful. Now. I know the years of not being paid for it cuz I just loved it now. We're moving out of that sleep. However, I'm a writer. I have to be writing because without it, you know this we're like a racing and so I have found the greatest fulfillment even Beyond preaching dead. For me is writing. It's still there putik. It makes me feel close to God and it's creative expression I love and and then I had to see but I'm I'm not judging writer. I am a writer but I don't have to only be a writer. So first first I had to see God is using people beyond the context of which we know Ministry. So just because some are premature and some are pastors and some are founders. It doesn't mean that you're not ministering if you're not in one of those capacities. Yeah, so we have to be careful you and I talked a little bit about this before we have to be careful and I'm going to use kind of some Vernacular where I hope you you and your audience can hear me on this. Okay, we have to stop making people feel like Scrubs. Because they're not mega-church pastors or any church. Hm because God is using pastors and everybody else. Yeah, come on and and the the church both Global and local are not kingdoms that we are saying to okay, and we should not make people feel like if you are not a king of your Earthly Kingdom your scrub. And so although I'm forty-seven. I deeply identify with the heartbeat of Millennials that feel like Mom and Dad. I don't have to do this only to please God. I don't have to do this only to walk in my purpose and I'm cheering them on because they will do things that we haven't done our Inspire us to do things. We haven't done and that was the frustration of Our Generation that we felt like some of you work a job for thirty years. Thanks be to God, but some of us will work many different jobs, and that doesn't make me less faithful. So I'm a big proponent on don't lock down to one thing. I'm a new associate Dean and I can't tell you how much I'm learning day-by-day. I've grown in ten years and these five months because of what I'm learning and I'm grateful to be a demon but being an associate Dean doesn't mean that I've arrived But neither does it mean that that's all I am and so I'm determined to keep one leg in the publishing world and one leg and the preaching world and one leg in the writing world because we can do all these things through Christ who gives us strength and we can give ourselves permission to have an Eclectic Journey that reflects eclectic gifts..

"Loving concern for all creatures foster reverence for life and rejoice in the splendor of god's gift of creation in and around us again proving the point that I try so hard to bring home in this book then we can be reading one classical author and yet we're reading all of them this is fascinating concept really Ella and we need we need to look we need to live it and then Dietrich von Hoff for of course the cost of discipleship via who makes a distinction between cheap grace and costly grace N. W. right that we accepted humility that we can only meet the demands of daily duty when we forget about success or failure in cast ourselves into the outstretched arms of the crucified Jesus took upon himself the sufferings of the world in what are our sufferings compared to his and then L. U. he writes you write about steps to take to become mature disciples on on page three oh two a yes Sir the distinction that makes this a truly will find one and let us hope that we are on the side of costly grace because cheap grace is really manipulative it's about look broad you either give me what I want or I don't want to know you anymore Kansi grace stands its ground home already at the foot of the cross and meaning is famous and meditation B. just written shortly before he was executed in the desktop prison of technical and near Berlin he talks about the discipline or discipleship if you want to seek freedom we have to discipline he says the chase in your mind and body yeah then you can do what is right and you want to live a life of really ugly hideous duplicity which isn't very much scandalous to any population he said recognizes suffering is not is just a sign that you are committing your life into stronger hands Celeste contented in death that is beautiful and it reminds me of someone that he truly loved which was Francis of Assisi this famous canticle of the sun where Francis calls death sisters sister death and here's deterred years later come miles all greatest of seats on the journey to freedom eternal freedom how long have we saucy in discipline action and suffering dying we may now be hold the revealed in the lord so the this is a man of tremendous courage Amini and braced across so much of Dietrich's writings remind me of some of the writings of John of the cross you in self was imprisoned for a number of years by his own community who did not wish him to be involved in the jury hearing reform but these are great sold to people who have a lot to teach us today and throughout you write that the cost of discipleship Bonhoeffer names several steps to follow if we want to become mature disciples of the master they include leaving the security of our comfort zone and seek fellowship with Christ to rise up and follow him in an active radical obedience leading the call discipleship lend meaning to all we are in do knowing that this costly existence as a quality of its own which may lead us where we would not have chosen to go being willing to ask life changing questions such as quote is there some part of my life which I refused to surrender at Christ behest some sinful passions some animosity some expectation perhaps my ambition or my reason and refusing to keep control of some part of our life or to absolve ourselves from what we know in our hearts to be wrong and so here here's those ma'am that merger you're talking about between all thirty of these various teachers in spiritualities masters in mystics and the themes the truth is fundamentally the same and yet we find it being expressed in different ways in different concepts yes Sir for instance just the word discipleship we have to come back on that today I mean we have tons of courses in leadership and we have to be careful they don't get caught up in a corporate model because discipleship is really a following and that point did the trick makes leading the call of discipleship plan meaning to all that we are into especially when life leads us through we were we would not have chosen to go no we haven't immediately understand the Dietrich was completely schooled in the scriptures I have a feeling he was thinking about Saint Peter after Jesus was assured I love you I love you I love you tend my lambs tend my sheep and then Jesus puts into the final test of discipleship but when they tied a belt around your waist and drag you were you don't want to go well you still follow me so I I think it's the radical miss are in the best sense of the word these masters go to the root of what it means to be a Christian they're not messing around with cultural Christianity with the great Lucerne Soren Kierkegaard called Christendom they're not wasting time on going into church with your white collar and on and then coming out and shooting people and hating people and ruining their lives that's not Christianity so meeting these masters is going to call us today we're going to have to take a very careful look at whether or not we are truly following this master the last semester in the book is Thomas Merton in you right Burton wants us to open our eyes to see that in tedious tours there is a mystical death that we must never confined contemplative life to a cloister why do we persisted living in airtight compartments when we are immersed in the mercy beyond telling why why is it so hard for us to discover Christ in new and unexpected places are we willing to submit ourselves unconditionally to the master do we want him to free us from the prison of the ego centricity can we accept the paradox that self emptying is the surest pathway to self fulfillment would you like to tell us about Thomas Merton in his teaching well the first thing I would like to say is that here again I'd love the readers of that chapter twenty to go back to chapter six on a scene Benedict of Mars a nurse yet because of course Merton as a Trappist is a Cistercian is completely grounded in the Benedictine tradition and Benedict is the founder of that tradition and in chapter six from the ancients we thought we really are working on bringing the contemplative in the active life into one balancing worship and work remaining at one in the same time completely open and enamored of the guardians deep love relationship through contemplative prayer and yet recognizing that we are also to be not only active contemplative split contemplative into action Phil Martin is a true demo T. of his original founder of the Benedictine life Saint Benedict of Nursia the Merton also had a huge love for John of the cross he wrote a book on the life of states in relation to Saint John of the cross called the ascent to truth and of course he had another story not unlike the metanoia conversion story of a gas station I mean Martin was very worldly person before he discovered Jesus Christ and really understood that he was called to a a and a life said he couldn't imagine when he was in Paris and writing books and so on and so forth so once again this yes to Jesus may well take us where we would not have wanted to go but it turns out to be the fullness of our call and the fullness of our location in you right to central message of Merton's spirituality is that our life is a continuous C. keen and finding of god that we might share god's love with others so simple and yet so profound burden teaches us the freeing truth that contemplation is the work of the Holy Spirit acting in our souls to the gifts of wisdom and understanding increase our love for god and neighbor the draw us to the jury only union with god can grant end huh leave us here without away a time to explain it he believes that the speech of god is silence will leave that for another time our guests even as a doctor Susan nudo again the title of the book is a feast for hungry souls spiritual lessons from the church's greatest masters the mystics thank you very much for being with us been wonderful to talk with you once again thank you so much father Ron and will thank all day Maria press out of Notre Dame Indiana for publishing this book all right look forward to our next meeting thanks a lot thank you all right and I know that night tonight so well.

self and why stop there why not share some with you're needing neighbors and by sharing with them by practicing generosity and sacrificial sharing you make them more generous and willing to share may be with you in the future and not just with you but more willing to share with others in this role is and this multiplies and doctor Peterson asked the question what if I'd made all the right sacrifices how good could things get if I made the ultimate sacrifice even if this call me to sacrifice what I valued most to sacrifice what I love best here's the problem that I see with doctor Peterson's plan I think this is the place where we all get stuck do you have enough faith in this impossible pipe dream to sacrifice what you love best so that others might be blessed and to make it worse we all have the voice of the cynical serpent whispering in our ears wouldn't it be better to protect what you love why would you sacrifice for them it might not even pay you back you can't save the world but at least you can try to save yourself so I said a doctor Peterson sure perfect sacrifice might be the answer to world transformation perfect sacrifice may be the answer but which of us is willing which of us is able make that climb and doctor Peterson says to me that he has discovered at least one person who was willing Jesus of Nazareth he says that Jewish rabbi who is called the

to run the safety ropes for Tommy but that he would not finish the climb three more days Tommy climbed like a man possessed nothing could stop him ten days into the climb it was clear that Tommy would do it he would become the first man in history to free climb the don wall he was the greatest climber in history something wasn't sitting right with him and so he decided that he would not finish in less Kevin was with him he was willing to sacrifice his dream for the sake of his friend we're doing this together he told them if you've been climbing with us through the book of genesis chapter twenty two might be the place for you get stock this is the most extreme test of faith I can imagine when the Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard contemplated this chapter of scripture he was left with only three words fear and trembling like the view of the dawn wall in Yosemite Valley there is something all full about genesis chapter twenty two listen to it and after these things it happened god tested Abraham he said to him Abraham and he answered here I am he said take your son your only son Isaac whom you love and go to the land of Mariah and offer him there as a burnt offering one one of the mountains that I will show you so Abraham got up early the next morning he saddled his donkey and he took two of these young men and Isaac his son any cut the wood for the burnt offering and heroes and set out for the place that god told him on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes and he saw the place at a distance and he said to the young man wait here with the donkey the boy and I are going over there and we will worship and we we will return to you and Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and he said it on his son Isaac and he took in his hand the fire and the knife and Isaac spoke up to his father Abraham he said my father and he answered here I am my son he said look fire in the wood but where is the lamb for the burnt offering any answer god himself will provide the lamb for the offering my son god will provide so they went both of them together and they came to the place that god had told him and they're Abraham built an altar and he laid the word out on it he bound Isaac his son laid him on the altar on top of the wood and Abraham stretched out his hand to take the knife and slaughter his son the angel of the lord called to Abraham from heaven and said Abraham Abraham and he answered I am and he said do not lay a hand on the boy or do anything to him because now I know that you fear god because you have not withheld from me your son your only son and lifted up his eyes and looked and behold there was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns and Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son and so Abraham called the name of the place the lord will provide and as it is said to this day on the mountain of the lord it will be provided and the angel of the lord spoke to Abraham a second time from heaven saying by myself I swear declares the lord because you have done this because you have not withheld from me your son your only son I will certainly bless you and I will certainly multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens in as the grains of sand on the seashore in your seed will possess the gate of his enemies and in your seat through your seat all the nations of the earth will be blessed because you have listen to my voice neighbor ham returned the young man and they got up and went out bear Sheba why does god test a ram like this I don't know I do know that in Jesus god himself made the sacrifice that he wouldn't let Abraham finish and I know that this god won't leave you stock hello see the only way up the only way up to the dawn of the new world is through this sacrifice the only way out of death the only way out of our predicament the only way out of your fearful clinging to what you're afraid of losing is through the cross of Jesus Christ god made the perfect sacrifice for you you and I needed the account of Abraham and Isaac not so that we could try to repeat it but so that we would trust what has been done and see how it was done on the mountain of the lord the father and the son through the love of the Holy Spirit made the perfect sacrifice to secure your future this god offered up his only son for you and he will not leave you stock god called Abraham to participate in the forthcoming sacrifice of Jesus and he calls you into the completed sacrifice of Jesus god didn't need Abraham's sacrifice god provided the sacrifice god will provide what you need that doesn't need your sacrifices but you're climbing partner does your family member your friend your neighbor needs your sacrifices you don't have to be afraid to share you don't have to be afraid of losing what you love most because god is love your god is love Jesus is risen from the dead he is returning to restore he's returning to transform the world and now in the interim he has gone into full support mode supporting you so you offer up your best you offer yourself as a living sacrifice and on the mountain of the lord it will be provided after nineteen days of climbing Evan Jorgenson and Tommy Caldwell reach the top together in in the euphoria that followed Kevin spoke of his friend the greatest climber in the world and he said something almost prophetic I didn't know what I was getting into or what we were up against but I was going on faith that this is his world he's got the clear vision of what it could be and I'm just gonna trust that may it be for us for Jesus sake.

the sake of his friend we're doing this together he told them if you've been climbing with us through the book of genesis chapter twenty two might be the place for you get stock this is the most extreme test of faith I can imagine when the Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard contemplated this chapter of scripture he was left with only three words fear and trembling like the view of the dawn wall in Yosemite Valley there is something all full about genesis chapter twenty two listen to it and after these things it happened god tested Abraham he said to him Abraham and he answered here I am and he said take your son your only son Isaac whom you love and go to the land of Mariah and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains that I will show you so Abraham got up early the next morning he saddled his donkey and he took two of these young men and Isaac his son any cut the wood for the burnt offering and heroes and set out for the place that god told him on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes and he saw the place at a distance and he said to the young man wait here with the donkey the boy and I are going over there and we will worship and we we will return to you and Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and he said it on his son Isaac and he took in his hand the fire and the knife and Isaac spoke up to his father Abraham he said my father and he answered here I am my son he said look fire in the wood but where is the lamb for the burnt offering any answer god himself will provide the lamb for the offering my son god will provide so they went both of them together and they came to the place that god had told him and there Abraham built an altar and he laid the word out on it he bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar on top of the wood and Abraham stretched out his hand to take the knife and slaughter his son the angel of the lord called to Abraham from heaven and said Abraham Abraham and he answered and he said do not lay a hand on the boy or do anything to him because now I know that you fear god because you have not withheld from me your son your only son Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked and behold there was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns and Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son and so Abraham called the name of the place the lord will provide and as it is said to this day on the mountain of the lord it will be provided and the angel of the lord spoke to Abraham a second time from heaven saying by myself I swear declares the lord because you have done this because you have not withheld from me your son your only son I will certainly bless you and I will certainly multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens in as the grains of sand on the seashore in your seed will possess the gate of his enemies and in your seat through your seat all the nations of the earth will be blessed because you have listen to my voice neighbor ham returned to the young man and they got up and went out to bear.

"Grow up to be responsible decent human beings who might take care of you when you're older or at least call you mom and dad I promise I'm calling tonight sacrifice is like sharing sharing is a form of sacrifice let's say you have a lot of food and instead of gorging yourself you squirrel some away for the future you are sharing with your future self and why stop there why not share some with you're needing neighbors and by sharing with them by practicing generosity and sacrificial sharing you make them more generous and willing to share may be with you in the future and not just with you but more willing to share with others in this role is and this multiplies and doctor Peterson asked the question what if I'd made all the right sacrifices how good could things get if I made the ultimate sacrifice even if this call me to sacrifice what I valued most to sacrifice what I love best here's the problem that I see with doctor Peterson's plan I think this is the place where we all get stuck do you have enough faith in this impossible pipe dream to sacrifice what you love best so that others might be blessed and to make it worse we all have the voice of the cynical serpent whispering in our ears wouldn't it be better to protect what you love why would you sacrifice for them they might not even pay you back you can't save the world but at least you can try to save yourself so I said a doctor Peterson sure perfect sacrifice might be the answer to world transformation perfect sacrifice may be the answer but which of us is willing which of us is able to make that climb and doctor Peterson says to me that he has discovered at least one person who was willing Jesus of Nazareth he says that Jewish rabbi who is called the Christ now Peterson he does not confess the crucified and risen Jesus as lord but he admires his story he writes in his book the story of Christ is a story at the limit where nothing more extreme nothing greater can be imagined the story of Jesus is the story of a man who gives his all for the sake of that better future offers up his life for all even more stunning in the case of Christ as he sacrifices himself god his father is simultaneously sacrificing what he loves best his son his only son it is the perfect sacrifice it is the sacrifice the end all sacrifice is the greatest possible sacrifice for the greatest possible good and Jordan Peterson believes it is an example to imitate I've come to believe I have come to trust and I invite you to trust that it is finished it's done god in his son made the perfect sacrifice to secure your future if that is true where does it leave you where does that leave me maybe you feel stuck maybe you're afraid your fate of losing what you love best you're afraid to trust that the sacrifice of Christ really does secure your present and your future your life in this world and in the world to come half way through their quest to climb the don wall Kevin Jorgensen got stuck he kept trying any kept falling saved by the safety rope he would try again and he would fall again the place where he got stock was a place on the path where they had to climb three hundred feet to the left they had the same either way horizontally inch by inch the length of a football field before they could go up again Tommy the greatest climber in the world went first and he did he set the perfect example Kevin was stuck he tried for three days and then he quit he said Tom you finish the climb without me and they agreed that Kevin would continue to run the safety ropes for Tommy but that he would not finish the climb for three more days Tommy climbed like a man possessed nothing could stop him ten days into the climb it was clear that Tommy would do it he would become the first man in history to free climb the don wall he was the greatest climber in history but something wasn't sitting right with him and so he decided that he would not finish in less Kevin was with him he was willing to sacrifice his dream for the sake of his friend we're doing this together he told them if you've been climbing with us through the book of genesis chapter twenty two might be the place for you get stuck this is the most extreme test of faith I can imagine when the Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard contemplated this chapter of scripture he was left with only three words fear and trembling like the view of the dawn wall in Yosemite Valley there is something all full about genesis chapter twenty two listen to it.

"By sharing with them by practicing generosity and sacrificial sharing you make them more generous and willing to share may be with you in the future and not just with you but more willing to share with others in this rose and this multiplies and doctor Peterson asked the question what if I made all the right sacrifices how good could things get if I made the ultimate sacrifice even if this called me to sacrifice what I valued most to sacrifice what I love best here's the problem that I see with doctor Peterson's plan I think this is the place where we all get stuck do you have enough faith in this impossible pipe dream to sacrifice what you love best so that others might be blessed and to make it worse we all have the voice of the cynical serpent whispering in our ears wouldn't it be better to protect what you love why would you sacrifice for them they might not even pay you back you can't save the world but at least you can try to save yourself so I said a doctor Peterson sure perfect sacrifice might be the answer to world transformation perfect sacrifice may be the answer but which of us is willing which of us is able to make that climb and doctor Peterson says to me that he has discovered at least one person who was willing Jesus of Nazareth he says that Jewish rabbi who is called the Christ now Peterson he does not confess the crucified and risen Jesus as lord but he admires his story he writes in his book the story of Christ is a story at the limit where nothing more extreme nothing greater can be imagined the story of Jesus is the story of a man who gives his all for the sake of that better future he offers up his life for all even more stunning in the case of Christ as he sacrifices himself god his father is simultaneously sacrificing what he loves best his son his only son it is the perfect sacrifice it is the sacrifice the end all sacrifice is the greatest possible sacrificed for the greatest possible good in Jordan Peterson believes it is an example to imitate I've come to believe I have come to trust and I invite you to trust that it is finished it's done god in his son made the perfect sacrifice to secure your future if that is true where does it leave you where does that leave me maybe you feel stock maybe you're afraid your freight of losing what you love best you're afraid to trust that the sacrifice of Christ really does secure your present and your future your life in this world and in the world to come half way through their quest to climb the don wall Kevin Jorgensen got stuck he kept trying any kept falling saved by the safety rope you would try again and he would fall again the place where he got stock was a place on the path where they had to climb three hundred feet to the left they had to show me their way horizontally inch by inch the length of a football field before they could go up again Tommy the greatest climber in the world went first and he did he set the perfect example Kevin was stuck he tried for three days and then he quit he said Tom you finish the climb without me and they agreed that Kevin would continue to run the safety ropes for Tommy but that he would not finish the climb for three more days Tommy climbed like a man possessed nothing could stop him ten days into the climb it was clear that Tommy would do it he would become the first man in history to free climb the don wall he was the greatest climber in history but something wasn't sitting right with him and so he decided that he would not finish in less cabin was with him he was willing to sacrifice his dream for the sake of his friend we're doing this together he told them if you've been climbing with us through the book of genesis chapter twenty two might be the place for you get stock this is the most extreme test

ham returned to the young man and they got up and went out to bear Sheba why does god test Abraham like this I don't know I do know that in Jesus god himself made the sacrifice that he wouldn't let Abraham finish and I know that this god won't leave you stock below see the only way up the only way up to the dawn of the new world is through this sacrifice the only way out of death the only way out of our predicament the only way out of your fearful clinging to what you're afraid of losing his through the cross of Jesus Christ god made the perfect sacrifice for you you and I needed the account of Abraham and Isaac not so that we could try to repeat it but so that we would trust what has been done and see how it was done on the mountain of the lord the father and the son through the love of the Holy Spirit made the perfect sacrifice to secure your future this god offered up his only son for you and he will not leave you stock god called Abraham to participate in the forthcoming sacrifice of Jesus and he calls you into the completed sacrifice of Jesus god didn't need Abraham's sacrifice god provided the sacrifice god will provide what you need god doesn't need your sacrifices but you're climbing partner does your family member your friend your neighbor needs your sacrifices you don't have to be afraid to share you don't have to be afraid of losing what you love most because god is love your god is love Jesus is risen from the dead he is returning to restore he's returning to transform the world and now in the interim he has gone into full support mode supporting you so you offer up your best you offer yourself as a living sacrifice and on the mountain of the lord it will be provided after nineteen days of climbing Kevin Jorgenson and Tommy Caldwell reach the top together in in the euphoria that followed Kevin spoke of his friend the greatest climber in the world and he said something almost prophetic I didn't know what I was getting into or what we were up against but I was going on faith that this is his world he's got the clear vision of what it could be and I'm just gonna trust that may it be for us for Jesus sake I invite you to pray with me your father you did not spare your own son but offered him.

"Is the number I love doing the show I appreciated as is it's a great experience I got to me I did a radio show I'm doing interviews for this book called walking through anger and a doing interviews I did interview today on coast to coast AM radio with George nori this morning which was awesome what an honor to be on his show and great great interview great experience getting to be on there walking through anger this new book that I was talking about it's easy to read it's filled with stories if you listen to the show frequently you know I like to tell a lot of then tells in teaching stories got tons of those in this book so this type of work you can pick up and read anywhere you can flip to a random page and learn something obviously you know there's a philosopher in the eighteen hundreds the name Soren Kierkegaard and cure guard he wrote about something called the art of arbitrariness and he said you know if you were to read a book starting from the third chapter you would get a very different meaning maybe than from what the author intended but you would get your own meaning out of it you would get your own purpose out of it maybe I'll get the intended meaning that you get your meaning out of it and that's what matters I love that idea of the art of arbitrariness and I like the idea of writing in a style that allows people to flip open to a page and learn something if they want to do it that way but also be a beginning to end type book but I think what you're gonna see is practical information on how to handle anger your own anger and really importantly how to handle others how to communicate this is an emotionally charged will be just as a great question an earlier statement about how to handle this idea of having a voice online without getting angry and taking it personally it's such an important topic we're in an emotionally charged world and if we're going to face reality it's all right how do we deal with Assad we live and get along in this world while ignoring it is not gonna make it go away had a great call from John earlier who who talked about that we don't just stuff it down teaching somebody Hey just stuff it down just don't deal with it that's not healthy that's not effective it's a matter of dealing with the anger walking through it but doing in a conscious way Steve work circle back to the very opening when I talked about even with people earlier this week regarding happiness and recognizing our goal is and happiness our goal is peace of your goals happiness you might fall short because you can't sustain that how long can you just maintain this state of happiness but a state of peace was a much different peace doesn't mean things always go your way peace doesn't mean things all fall into place pieces understanding the gratitude of every moment I think peace is a lot of things but peace is Lynn knowing yourself and so this book is walking through anger it's a book of self discovery your learn about yourself here to learn about others you're gonna get some interesting stories along the way Stoke Val now walking through anger I I got an email from from Wayne Wayne says I've watched your videos and I have more questions and when I just had to repeat the question on there because I love it that's all that was the extent of it and watch your videos and I have more questions Wayne I think that is very rational and reasonable to have more questions are that's right that's why I love a lot when these quick video spark questions Kevin from Guatemala left me a voicemail and on my video on five keys to controlling anger Kevin I want to say thank you for taking time to leave me a message from Guatemala that was pretty powerful I appreciate your appreciation to you expressed and I'm grateful that that video was helpful for you so thank you so much for calling and taking time to do that a lot of times a lot of times were impacted by things but we don't really say anything to others about that so I think it's really cool that you did that with every week I'm here we're we're talking on on Monday nights eight to ten emotional manager we're learning about we're learning about life and how to handle some of the situations and it's important it's important because we were all going to struggle while running counter situations that are difficult when the question is how do we deal with that well I think the more we prepare for reality the better chance we have to get through it I talked about the difference between being positive and I want to bring it in here in school I kind of want to wind down with I don't necessarily buy into it's about just being positive because we can't always be positive we face with real things for me it's not about positive it's about accuracy it's about using words that ground us in reality when we ground ourselves in reality we don't exaggerate we don't downplay we don't exaggerate the more accurate we are the more balance our self talk so it's not that nobody likes you nobody ever listens to nobody cares it's that today you didn't connect with somebody who showed you the level of care you wanted today that this didn't happen today but the more you stay accurate and balance in your language the more likely you are to experience peace or at a minimum not experience as wide range of impulsive intense emotions so since I was on that great coast to coast AM show this morning how many is a star reference to take you out of the show and that's this if you look at that a consolation Ryan famous consolation the brightest star among it is called Rigel and I have this article are real once called get to get to Rigel because when you get to Roger one thing you'll notice is that consolation no longer exists because from that because from that store you couldn't see the consolation the same way we can see it from our star the same is true of your problems if you can get to Rigel in your own life see your per spect you're problems from a different perspective things change and that's how we can get to peace we start questioning things we pursue answers to things the more we do that the more we find we're all searching for which is
