    Matthew 27:34 (2/20/20)

    Matthew 27:34 (2/20/20)

    * The most powerful thing you can do to touch another person’s life is to be fully present with them.
    * Presence communicates Priority - and this makes people feel special.
    * As leaders, you have more power in the relationship that your employees, and this can make them feel insecure.
    * But if you’re fully present you show them how important they are.
    * But it takes sacrifice to be fully present.
    * Vs 34 - Jesus refused the pain killer.
    * I believe one of the reasons is because it would dull His senses.
    * He wanted to be fully present.
    * EX: my mom on her death bed.
    * It takes sacrifice to be fully present.
    * You can dull the pain by going on social media or watching TV or whatever.
    * But you’ll lose the power of presence for those around you.
    * If you choose to sacrifice, you’ll discover the power of presence.
    * You will become a person of influence in other’s lives.

    Matthew 27:50 (2/20/20)

    * In vs 46 Jesus poured out His heart to God.
    * This was an emotional cry - He felt toward God what John the Baptist must have felt toward Him when he was in prison and Christ never came to visit.
    * But in vs 50 we see something happen that’s very important.
    * “He GAVE UP His spirit” - this was an issue of the will.
    * Nobody could take Christ’s spirit from Him - He had to give it up.
    * His last act on the earth was an act of the will - shear willpower.
    * He didn’t let His emotions keep Him from doing what He knew He had to do.
    * This is a beautiful picture of taking the emotional to the transactional.
    * Psalms 22 - Jesus certainly had this memorized (vs 3 David said, “Yet…”).
    * So what do we do?
    * Feel It - when you’re going through something, feel every single emotion.
    * Pour It - pour out your heart to God, holding nothing back.
    * Do It - whatever the next thing is, do it. Do the next step in the process - finish the assignment.
    * Jesus on the cross, although things looked like they were out of His control, was in full control of the situation.

    Mark 1:4 (2/20/20)

    Mark 1:4 (2/20/20)

    * Faithful in little leads to faithful in BIG.
    * Jesus could’ve come at any time in history.
    * But He came before books, newspapers, telephones, internet, media, etc.
    * He came at a time when word about Him would spread slowly - very slowly.
    * Vs 4 - John was stationed in an “uninhabited region.”
    * This would be like God’s main spokesman for what He’s doing in the world having a Twitter following of 17 people.
    * But if that person was simply faithful, as John was, then he would fulfill God’s role for his life.
    * Just about the time John’s audience began to grow, he was removed from the picture.
    * Now, 2k+ years later we’re still talking about his faithfulness.
    * Testimony of Bible study - at the height of our business I started doing it with hardly anyone there….

    Leviticus 18 & 19 (2/20/20)

    People cannot truly enjoy the external benefits of a free market without the internal restraints God gives us to keep it in check. (free market).

    Matthew 27:1-3 (2/13/20)

    Matthew 27:1-3 (2/13/20)

    * We are made up of three parts - Spirit, Soul, and Body.
    * Our soul is our mind, will, and emotions.
    * Peter had just denied Jesus, felt the sting of conviction when the rooster crowed, and wept many bitter tears.
    * Now we see how Judas responds when he felt the same sting of conviction.
    * Look at the three aspects:
    * 1) Remorse - this is a matter of the emotions - you feel bad for what you’ve done.
    * 2) Regret - this is a matter of the mind - you know you’ve done wrong.
    * 3) Repent - this is a matter of the will - you choose to ask forgiveness and change your ways.
    * To repent you have to rely on God’s grace and mercy, and recognize His rightful place of authority in your life.
    * Peter experienced all three, and he was forgiven.
    * Judas stopped at two - he never repented, giving God the chance to forgive him.
    * Bringing this back to business - how do you know who to fire?
    * When they’ve done what Judas did, and feel remorse and regret but have no intention of repenting.
    * You know they won’t recognize your rightful authority.
    * I had to fire an agent once….

    Matthew 26:37 (2/13/20)

    Matthew 26:37 (2/13/20)

    * Christ’s goal was to finish His assignment, and then empower His disciples to carry on the mission when He was gone.
    * In business, this should be our goal as well - to set our company up so it can fulfill the mission without us there.
    * But this can’t be done apart from PEOPLE!
    * Jesus shows us the importance of your team.
    * He was about to die, and so He went into the Garden of Gethsemane to prepare.
    * Gethsemane means “oil press.”
    * Israel was known for their olives - you would press them until the oil came out, then bottle it up and sell it.
    * Jesus was about to get pressed and He knew it.
    * So He chose to bring some of His closest friends along.
    * This is so important - we were never meant to live alone.
    * God puts people into our lives to help us carry our burdens.
    * In business your company is only as good as the people inside it.
    * Systems run a business, but people run the systems.
    * A business is an “oil press.”
    * This is why God used the marketplace to train so many of the heroes of our faith.
    * Christ’s friends failed, but He knew they would.
    * He put them on His team anyway.
    * Because He knew they would ultimately “get it,” and “do it.”
    * He chose loyalty over proficiency - they came back and a group of unlearned men turned the world upside down.
    * And we’re still talking about it today, 2,000 years later.
    * This is the power of building the right team.
