REV. JIM SHEROD SEPTEMBER 29, 2013 CHILDREN'S MESSAGE - WELS ZION - TORRANCE, CALIFORNIA GOOD MORNING! HOW ARE YOU GUYS THIS MORNING? [FINE] GOOD. WELL, UM ... WHO WANTS TO LOOK IN THE PURPLE BAG THIS MORNING? [HANDS IMMEDIATELY GO UP] OKAY, SOPHIA, YOU WANNA LOOK? [SOPHIA TAKES THE PURPLE BAG AND OPENS IT] WELL, WHAT IS THAT? [SOPHIA EXAMINES WHAT'S INSIDE THE PURPLE BAG] HUH? OKAY! SO LET'S OPEN IT UP ... THE ZIPPER, AND TAKE A LOOK AT IT. [SOPHIA LOOKS AGAIN AT THE CONTENTS OF THE PURPLE BAG] YEAH, THERE'S A MAP THERE. UH-HUH. OKAY! SO LET'S NO, THERE'S NOTHING ELSE, JUST IN THE MIDDLE HERE IS THE WORDS. SO WHAT IS THAT? [I THINK IT IS, UH, SOMETHING] OKAY, YOU CAN PUT STUFF IN IT. THIS IS THE GREEK NEW TESTAMENT. SO THIS IS THE NEW TESTAMENT. AND WE'RE GONNA TURN IT OPEN TO: WELL, WE DON'T WANNA MAKE THIS TOO LONG OF A LESSON THIS MORNING, SO WE'RE GONNA OPEN IT UP TO JOHN 11, VERSE 35. SOMEBODY OUT THERE PROBABLY KNOWS WHY I'M PICKING JOHN 11:35. YOU KNOW WHY? BECAUSE IT'S THE SHORTEST VERSE IN THE BIBLE. OKAY. SO LET'S SEE, COULD YOU READ THIS FOR ME? THIS IS REALLY SHORT. WHO CAN READ THIS? WILLIAM, CAN YOU READ IT? OKAY! GO AHEAD. YOU CAN READ THAT ONE. [WILLIAM SPEAKS] HUH? WHAT? HUM! [PASTOR READING IN GREEK LANGUAGE] WELL, I GUESS THAT'S GREEK TO YOU, HUH? IT'S GREEK TO ME, TOO! SO WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT? THIS ILLUSTRATES SOMETHING THAT I THINK YOU GUYS KNOW INTUITIVELY. AND THAT'S IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN TAUGHT SOMETHING, YOU CAN'T UNDERSTAND IT. RIGHT? I WANT EVERYBODY OUT THERE TO HELP ME SING IT. THAT LAST REFRAIN OF A SONG THAT WE ALL KNOW. SINGING: "CUZ IT'S 1 ... 2 ... 3 STRIKES YOU'RE OUT AT THE OLD BALL GAME." AND THIS IS ONE STRIKE THAT PEOPLE HAVE IF THEY CAN'T UNDERSTAND SPIRITUAL THINGS. YOU CAN TELL THEM ALL DAY LONG "JESUS LOVES YOU"; "HE DIED FOR YOUR SINS"; "HE PAID THE PRICE FOR YOUR SINS ... SO THAT YOU CAN GO TO HEAVEN". AND YOU KNOW WHAT? IF THEY DON'T HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT, IT FLIES RIGHT PAST THEIR HEAD. THE HOLY SPIRIT'S THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN OPEN UP OUR EYES TO GOD'S WORD SO WE CAN UNDERSTAND IT AND THEN WE CAN BELIEVE AND BE SAVED. BECAUSE WE WERE ALL BORN DEAD IN OUR SINS. WE WERE ALL BORN ENEMIES OF GOD. AND ... AS THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THOSE WHO DO NOT HAVE THE SPIRIT OF GOD, CANNOT REALLY UNDERSTAND THE THINGS THAT COME FROM GOD, BECAUSE THEY ARE SPIRITUALLY DISCERNED. WHICH IS A FANCY WAY OF SAYING IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT, YOU CAN'T UNDERSTAND GOD'S WORD. YOU CAN'T UNDERSTAND SPIRITUAL THINGS. AND THAT'S 3 STRIKES YOU'RE OUT. YOU'RE BORN DEAD, ENEMIES, AND WITHOUT SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING. SO WHAT CAN WE DO? TO HELP THOSE AROUND US? TO COME TO FAITH AND KNOW JESUS AS THEIR SAVIOR. WHAT CAN WE DO? [WE CAN TELL THEM ABOUT GOD] THAT'S RIGHT! TELL THEM ABOUT GOD. AND, YOU KNOW THE HOLY SPIRIT WORKS THROUGH HIS WORD. SO HE WILL CREATE FAITH IN THEIR HEARTS; HE WILL GIVE THEM SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING. HE WILL MAKE THEM OUT OF A DEAD PERSON, SPIRITUALLY DEAD, HE'LL MAKE THEM SPIRITUALLY ALIVE. ALL RIGHT. WELL THANK YOU. YOU CAN GO BACK TO YOUR SEATS AND WE'LL CONTINUE WITH THE HYMN ... THE SINGING OF HYMN 416.
