THEN JESUS TOLD THEM, "THIS VERY NIGHT YOU WILL ALL FALL AWAY ON ACCOUNT OF ME, FOR IT IS WRITTEN: [TEXT: MATTHEW 26:31-35, 69-75] WHAT WE'VE ALREADY READ. [TEXT FROM THE HOLY BIBLE: NIV, 1973, 1978, 1984, 2011 BY BIBLICA, INC.] I MARRIED FIFTEEN YEARS AGO. TONIGHT I BROUGHT MY FAMILY ... UMM ... FIRST I WANT TO LET THEM SHARE THE GOSPEL, IN THIS BEAUTIFUL SANCTUARY BUT INSIDE WAY, IN SECRET I WILL USE A COUPLE. OH! NO ONE LAUGHED? OKAY. FIFTEEN YEARS AGO WHEN I MARRIED AND, UH, IN 2000 I HAD A FIRST ANNIVERSARY. AND I BUY SOME SPECIAL FLOWER VASE. AND THEN PUT SOME LETTERS OVER THERE. OKAY, I SAY: WE'RE GONNA GO THIS WAY FOREVER WITH YOU AND ME. AND THEN, ORIENTAL VESSEL THAT YOU HAVE TO PUT INTO SOME POTS ... NOW ... I FORGOT THE NAME. YOU PUT IT IN THERE AND THEN LATER YOU PUT AND IT'S SHINY OUTSIDE. I'M SORRY I CAN'T REMEMBER, BUT ON THE SECOND ANNIVERSARY, I BUY THIS RING, IT'S A REALLY TINY, SMALL PERSONAL RING. I PAID $40.00 FOR THE PAIR AT THE TIME. I GAVE ONE OF THESE TO MY WIFE AND I KEEP THIS. OKAY! EVEN IF IT'S A DIAMOND GOLD RING I DON'T LIKE I'M TOO YOUNG. GIVE IT AWAY. BUT THIS WILL BE THE SIGN: WE ARE ENGAGED. WE ARE MARRIED. AND AFTER THAT THIRD YEAR, I PROMISED HER: LET'S DON'T DO ANYTHING UNTIL TENTH ANNIVERSARY. TENTH ANNIVERSARY WE'RE GONNA GO TO EUROPE FOR IT. AND THEN, I MET THAT TENTH ANNIVERSARY IN THIS COUNTRY. THE SITUATION IS NOT REALLY GOOD. I'M STILL STUDYING AT THE CLAREMONT UNIVERSITY. TUITION'S REAL EXPENSIVE. AND THEY SAID TO ME: AS SERVING THE CHURCH IN CAPACITY AS PASTOR, THE SALARY'S REALLY LOW. I'M STILL ASKING PARENTS: SEND SOME MONEY TO HERE. SO, ANYWAY, IT WASN'T POSSIBLE, SO I SAID: FIFTEEN YEARS! I'M SORRY. I CAN'T DO IT RIGHT NOW, BUT I WILL DO IT THE FIFTEENTH YEAR. BUT LAST MONTH, FEBRUARY 27TH, WAS THE FIFTEENTH ANNIVERSARY. AND I DIDN'T GO TREATING HER TO EUROPE. THAT MEANS MY PROMISE BROKEN SEVERAL TIMES. BUT SHE HAS PATIENCE. IT'S NOT SHE HAS COMPLAINED YET. SHE UNDERSTANDS THE SITUATION. AND THE LAST COUPLE YEARS, I WORKED AT THE RESTAURANT IN SANTA BARBARA. THIS MORNING I DID THAT, TOO. GOT UP AT 5 A.M., ARRIVED AT THE RESTAURANT AT 6 A.M. TURNED ON THE GRILL. SPECIAL WEDNESDAY. I'M THE COOK. AND THEN FROM 6:30 TO 1 P.M., I MADE OMELET, HASH BROWNS, FRENCH FRIES, HAMBURGER BURRITOS. AND THEN, I COME HOME ... EAT SOMETHING, AND TAKE A SHOWER, CHANGE CLOTHES AND I AM HERE. BUT NO COMPLAINTS HERE. I KNOW MYSELF, WHAT I HAVE RIGHT NOW IS FUTURISTIC SKILLS COMPARED TO THE REAL VALUE OF MYSELF. THE PSALM 15. OH ... IT'S TOO DEEP FOR ME. I'M NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THE PSALM 15. I KNOW MYSELF. BUT GOOD NEWS IS I GOT A CALL A COUPLE WEEKS AGO FROM THE CHURCH IN SAN JOSE. APOSTLES CHURCH CALLED ME AS THEIR ASSOCIATE PASTOR. AND THEN YESTERDAY I ACCEPTED. SO I'M GONNA ... MY FAMILY'S GONNA GO TO SAN JOSE. THEY CALLED ME, THEY KNOW MY ENGLISH IS STILL BUT THEY CALLED ME AS THEIR ASSOCIATE PASTOR BECAUSE THEY SAID: WE NEED YOUR HEART. THE REASON I ... I'M SHARING THIS, I DON'T WANNA LOOK AT MY SERMON NOTES FOR ONCE I LOOK AT THAT I LEAN A LITTLE BIT AND TRY TO READ THEM IN ENGLISH. SO, OUR PROMISES CAN BE TOO HUMAN. IT'S REALLY A PERSON'S VALUE. YEAH? YOU GOTTA TRY TO KEEP A PROMISE. RIGHT? BUT, YOU CAN MAKE MORE THAN A MILLION EXCUSES ABOUT WHY I CANNOT KEEP A PROMISE. YOU COULD SAY: BECAUSE HE CHANGED FIRST. I MEAN, WEDDING FIRST AND SEPARATED AND THEN DIVORCED. THERE'S A CERTAIN REASON: YEAH, I UNDERSTAND. BUT THEN MOSTLY PEOPLE TRY TO DO THE BLAME GAME. LIKE ADAM AND EVE. LIKE THE FIRST TIME WHEN THEY SINNED. THE LORD ASKED THEM: WHO MAKES THEM ... WHO MAKES YOU DO THIS? OH, THE LADY! THE SERPENT! THOSE KIND OF BLAME GAMES STILL HAPPEN IN THIS WORLD. BUT TONIGHT THE BIBLE AND THE LORD ASKS US: WHO SAVED YOU? AND WHY? BECAUSE YOU'RE REALLY GREAT? YOU KEEP A PROMISE REALLY WELL? BECAUSE OUR LIVES ALWAYS, WELL ... WELL ENOUGH TO ENTER THE HEAVEN? BECAUSE WE OFFERINGS OFFERED WELL? BECAUSE WE NEVER SKIP A SUNDAY? BECAUSE MY RELATIONSHIP WITH PASTOR IS REALLY GOOD? YOU KNOW THE ANSWER. ALL NO, NO, NO, NO. NO. THE ANSWER'S SIMPLE. BECAUSE HE PROMISED US. I LOVE YOU ALL. YEAH. SO I'M NOT GONNA LEAVE YOU ALONE. THEN, I'M GONNA GO DOWN. I WILL SEND MY ONLY SON. AND THIS IS WHO WILL TO THE CROSS TO PAY YOUR OWN SINFUL MONEY. AND THEN ANYBODY WHO LOOKS AT THE CROSS AND HAVE FAITH ON THAT WILL BE SAVED. THAT PROMISE. HE DOES NOT NARROW DOWN AS WE KNOW THE GOSPEL OF JOHN 3:16. TRUE, WHAT WAS THAT? [PAUSE] IN KOREAN, WE HEAR IT LIKE THIS: [SINGING IN KOREAN LANGUAGE JOHN 3:16 CONTINUING JOHN 3:16 IN SONG SINGING SINGING SINGING SINGING] I'M SINGING THE EXACT KOREAN BIBLE VERSES: JOHN 3:16 ANYBODY WHO BELIEVES THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON IS NOT GONNA PERISH BUT WILL ... WHO WILL HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. THAT'S A PROMISE NEVER BROKEN YET! IT WILL BE! THE PROMISE IN BETWEEN FRIENDS, AND BETWEEN HUSBAND AND WIFE, AND BETWEEN FATHER AND SON, AND BETWEEN PASTOR AND CHURCH MEMBERS, MIGHT BE GOOD, BUT NOT ETERNAL. I HAVE TO SAY GOODBYE TO MY COUPLE KOREAN MEMBERS OVER THERE I HAVE NO MORE THAN 15 PEOPLE, EVERY SUNDAY 12 WORSHIP, BUT WE DIDN'T EXPECT WE WERE GONNA SEPARATE. WE BELIEVED WE THINK IT WAS GONNA BE FOREVER. WE LOVE EACH OTHER A LOT. WE LOVE OUR SUNDAY WORSHIP AND AFTER WORSHIP WE HAVE A BEAUTIFUL LUNCH. WE LOVE THAT. ONE THING I DIDN'T PROMISE THEM I'M GONNA BE WITH YOU FOREVER, BUT ... I'VE BROKEN THEIR HEART A LITTLE BIT. THEY UNDERSTAND I HAVE TO GO. BUT, STILL ... LOOK AT THE PETER WHAT YOU READ TONIGHT. WE KNOW THAT PETER WAS A FISHERMAN. FISHER. WE KNOW THAT STORY BEFORE WHERE JOHN THE BAPTIST HAD THE DISCIPLES. YOU KNOW THAT? YEAH? JOHN THE BAPTIST HAD THE FOLLOWERS A LOT. THEN JESUS CAME. AND JESUS' FOLLOWERS. AMONG THOSE FOLLOWERS, MAYBE THEY ARGUED: WHO'S REAL WHO'S REAL MESSIAH? WHO YOU GONNA FOLLOW? WERE CONFUSED A LITTLE BIT. BUT JOHN NEVER CONFUSED. JOHN SAID: NOT ME. THAT MAN! I'VE JUST CAME TO ALL OF YOU BECAUSE I WANNA PREPARE HIS WAY. HE'S THE ONE! AND A COUPLE DISCIPLES CHANGED THEIR DIRECTION IMMEDIATELY. AND GO TO THE JESUS CHRIST. PETER AND USUALLY SAY: BELOVED JOHN. BUT, BIBLE DOESN'T MENTION THAT. TWO DISCIPLES LIKE THAT. BUT, PETER, JESUS SAID, I'M GONNA BUILD THIS CHURCH ON YOUR CONFESSIONS, YEAH? AND USUALLY BELIEVE PETER AS A HOW CAN YOU SAY? AS A ... [KOREAN WORD] IT IS A HEAD. RIGHT? MOST FAMOUS, MOST POWERFUL, YEAH? IF JESUS WAS FIRST, HE MIGHT BE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OR LEFT SIDE. I DON'T KNOW WHICH SIDE HE WAS BUT, TONIGHT, JESUS SAID: ONE OF THE MEN WILL BETRAY ME. WHO WAS JUDAS. YEAH? THEN PETER APPROACHED JESUS CHRIST YOU KNOW ME, I'LL BE WITH YOU. SO JESUS SAID: NO, YOU'RE GONNA DISOWN ME BEFORE THE ROOSTER CROWS. AND PETER REPLIED: OH NO, NO WAY NO WAY. YOU CAN'T SAY LIKE THAT! I'M GONNA DIE. I'M NOT GONNA DISOWN YOU. YOU DON'T KNOW I'M TOP FISHER FROM FISHERS FROM GALILEE? I'M NOT THE ONE. MAYBE THOSE PEOPLE? LET'S THINK ABOUT THE PART. LOTS OF TIMES YOU AND I HAVE TO STAND IN FRONT OF THE MIRROR, BY YOURSELF. NOT WITH YOUR FAITHFUL MOM. NOT WITH YOUR FAITHFUL WIFE. BY YOURSELF. OKAY. THEN LOOK AT YOURSELF. AND YOU KNOW THE LAW, THE FUNCTION OF THE LAW. OOH! FAMOUS ONE IS MIRROR. THE LAW ALWAYS SHOWS YOU WHO YOU ARE, HOW SINFUL YOU ARE. [PAUSE] BUT, SMART HUMAN BEINGS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR THE WAY. I'M FINE. THOSE PEOPLE ... SOMETHING WRONG. IN THIS CHURCH I THINK I'M THE ONE WHO REALLY TRUSTS GOSPEL, TRUSTS THE WORD. AND I THINK I'M NOT A TROUBLE- MAKER. MAYBE THE PERSON NEXT TO ME. I DON'T THINK HE WAS REALLY GOOD ... SOMETHING LIKE THAT. WHY IS THAT? SOUNDS LIKE A LITTLE SIMILAR WITH BLAME GAME AGAIN? THE BLAME GAME SOUNDS EASY, BUT IT'S A HUGE ENEMY FOR THE CHRISTIAN. ALWAYS THE BIBLE TELLS US: LOOK AT YOURSELF. HOW SINFUL YOU ARE. HOW WORTHLESS YOU ARE. THAT'S WHAT THE LAW SAYS. BUT, GOSPEL ALWAYS SAYS TO US: EVEN THOUGH YOU'RE WORTHLESS BY THE LAW, YOU ARE MOST IMPORTANT BEING FROM ME. SEE, YOU BECOMING MY KIDS. [PAUSE] BUT THEN YOU BETTER NOT FORGET YOU GOT THE TITLE. YOU GOT THE NEW RELATIONSHIP. A NEW CITIZENSHIP. IN THE FAITH. IT'S NOT BECAUSE OF OUR DEEDS. WE HEARD THAT MORE THAN 100 TIMES EVERY SUNDAY MAYBE ALL WELS PASTORS EMPHASIZE THIS PART. BUT TONIGHT, FIRST THROUGH THE PETER STORY. I WANT TO EMPHASIZE AGAIN BECAUSE THREE MONTHS AGO I GOT THE SERMON PASSAGES AND THEN I READ AGAIN, READ AGAIN, READ AGAIN, READ AGAIN. WHAT I'M GONNA SHARE. MY HEART SAYS: LET'S SHARE THAT. WHEN I READ THAT PASSAGE, IT'S JUST LIKE I'M PETER AT THAT MOMENT. IF I WERE THERE, IF YOU WERE THERE, WHAT DO YOU SEE, I MEAN, THAT THE THE RESULT WOULD BE CHANGED. ANYBODY HAS CONFIDENCE TO CHANGE THAT. MAYBE NOT. [PAUSE] [PAUSE] IN SPITE OF THAT FACT OUR GOOD LORD, OUR RESURRECTED LORD, THEY MET IN THE GALILEE AGAIN. HMM ... I WAS IN GALILEE ALSO IT LOOKS LIKE REALLY SEA. BECAUSE OF TIDE. HMM ... NOW MY SCALE IS BIGGER BECAUSE I LIVE IN THIS BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY, BUT SOUTH KOREA EAST TO WEST IS LIKE ONLY 150 MILES. AND THEN THE BORDER FROM THE NORTH KOREA TO SOUTH KOREA IS LIKE PENINSULA FROM 38TH PARALLEL TO THE SOUTH BOTTOM IS LIKE ONLY 300 MILES. AND THEN, IT IS LIKE 50, 50 MILLION PEOPLE LIVING TOGETHER. AND MOSTLY LIVE TOGETHER IN TOTAL AREA 20 MILLION. WOW! UM! THE SCALE, AT THE TIME. RIGHT NOW MY SCALE IS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT. THREE HOUR DRIVING IS NOTHING. FROM VENTURA TO HERE. MY NEIGHBORS. IN KOREA, THREE HOURS DRIVING IS A LOT. JUST THINK! YOU COULD CROSS THE COUNTRY ALMOST. [PAUSE] THE SEA OF GALILEE, I THINK, FOR THEM, IT LOOKS LIKE SEA. AS WE KNOW, SOME PEOPLE LIVE IN THE NEBRASKA, I'VE HEARD THAT REALLY ACTUALLY. LOTS OF PEOPLE DO NOT SEE THE ACTUAL SEA. BEFORE THEY DIE. SEVEN YEARS AGO ON A TRIP. I DRIVE WITH MY FRIEND AND I STOP BY CERTAIN RESTAURANT IN NEBRASKA SEE THIS EXIT, AND THEN 10-MILE DRIVE LOOK AWAY, AND THEN STOP BY RESTAURANT, TWO ASIAN GUYS ENTER RESTAURANT, TWO OF THE PEOPLE ... LADIES, MEN, LOOKIN' AT US LIKE THIS. I WONDER WHY. AND THE WAITRESS CAME AND SAID: EVERYBODY'S SHOCKED! I'M SURE MOST ALL OF THESE PEOPLE LOOK AT THE ASIAN ... ACTUAL ASIAN, FIRST TIME TONIGHT. [LAUGHTER] I DIDN'T ... I DIDN'T REMEMBER THE TOWN NAME, BUT IT WAS TRUE. THEY WERE BORN IN THE TOWN. MARRIED IN THE TOWN. AND LIVING IN THAT TOWN. HOW BLESSED WE ARE. BUT TONIGHT, I WANNA REALLY SAY TO ALL: I APPRECIATE, I BECAME A WELS PASTOR. WHICH IS A BLESSING. I WAS METHODIST. I TRAINED IN THEIR WAY, AN ORDAINED IN METHODIST WAY. BUT NOW I HAVE A CONFESSIONAL LUTHERAN HEART. BECAUSE I BELIEVE THE WORD IS EVERYTHING. I DON'T NEED ANY OTHER PHILOSOPHIC GROUP AND THE THEORIES AND IDEAS TO EXPLAIN THE BIBLE. NO. THEY MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE. AND, I DON'T HAVE ANY CHANCE EVEN THROUGH 0.1 CHANCE, TO BE RIGHTEOUS. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? ONLY BY GRACE, WE ... ARE ... SAVED! LET ME SAY: ALMOST DIE, BUT WE SAY OH WE FULLY DEAD AND THEN SAVED. LOTS OF [PAUSE] RADICAL AND LIBERAL THEOLOGIANS IN CHURCHES TEACH US LIKE THAT. WE ALMOST DIE. WE ALMOST LOSE OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. BUT GOD GIVE US CHANCE WE HAVE A LITTLE, LITTLE SPARK IN OUR HEART BUT HE PUTS SOME GAS AND AIR TO US AND THEN ... FLAME UNDER THE FIRE GOES UP ... BY HOLY SPIRIT. IT'S WHAT THEY BELIEVE. BUT WE DON'T TEACH LIKE THAT. THE BIBLE NEVER MENTIONS LIKE THAT. WE TOTALLY LOSE OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS WHEN WE SIN. ANY KIND OF SIN. IT DOESN'T MATTER. THE RESULT OF SIN IS DEATH! YEAH! WE'RE ALL DEAD! SORRY FOR REMINDING THAT. BUT! WE WILL. WE MUST. UNTIL WE ESCAPE FROM THIS SINFUL BODY. BUT, I COULD STAND ALL TONIGHT HERE WITH YOU ALL WITH THIS KIND OF ACCENT BECAUSE, NOT BECAUSE OF THIS FLESH, BUT BECAUSE OF MY SOUL AND MY HEART. WANNA SHARE THE GOOD NEWS FOR YOU ALL, WITH YOU ALL. YOU ARE SAVED ... BY GRACE ALONE. NOT BY OUR DEEDS. SO TONIGHT, PETER, PERFECTLY REMINDING US AGAIN, EVEN THOUGH WE BREAK THAT PROMISE, EVEN THOUGH SOMETIMES WE STRUGGLE WITH OUR FAITH, BUT OUR GOOD LORD NEVER BREAKS HIS PROMISE TO US. AS WE KNOW THE HOLY [KADOSH] IT LIKE SEPARATES INTO THE GOD. SEE, IT'S LIKE IT SEPARATES FROM THE WORLD. NO, DON'T EXPLAIN THAT WAY. I DON'T LIKE TO EXPLAIN THAT WAY. SOME PEOPLE LIKE THIS. BUT, IT IS ... WE ARE HOLY. WHY? YOU ARE AND I AM, WE ARE SEPARATED. INTO THE GOD INTO THE LORD. UMM ... EVEN WE ARE STILL LIVING IN THE WORLD. OKAY. THAT'S WHY THE BENEDICTION IS LIKE THAT SERVE YOUR NEIGHBOR; CAN LIVE IN HARMONY. YOU CAN DO THAT. [PAUSE] [PAUSE] LET ME, LET ME FINISH ... [PAUSE] WE HEARD JESUS ASK PETER THREE TIMES IN THE GALILEE: DO YOU LOVE ME? AND THEN PETER ANSWERED THREE TIMES: YOU KNOW. YOU KNOW. WE KNOW PETER'S CHARACTER HE MUST ANSWER: YES, I AM! BUT HE CHANGED. HE SAID AGAIN: LORD, YOU KNOW. THERE IS CERTAIN CHANGE. FIRST HE DENIED THREE TIMES HIS MASTER, JESUS CHRIST. AND THEN WHEN HE MET AND WALKED ALONG WITH THE RESURRECTED JESUS CHRIST, JESUS ASKED HIM: DO YOU LOVE ME? YOU KNOW, YES, I LOVE YOU. WHAT A PERFECT FORGIVENESS. I REALLY CAN'T BELIEVE WHEN HE ANSWERED THREE TIMES, HE FORGOT ALL THOSE THREE MISTAKES. I DON'T KNOW. AND EVEN BAD WORDS CAME OUT. AND THE CURSING. BUT JESUS CURED PETER'S HEART, BROKEN HEART AND THEN MAKES HIM A REAL DISCIPLE. AND THEN HE COULD TAKE CROSS ALSO. USUALLY WE BELIEVE CRUCIFIED [UPSIDE DOWN]. THIS NIGHT OUR LORD ASKING YOU ALL: EVEN IN THE LENT SEASON ... YES! THINK ABOUT THE CROSS. [PAUSE] I THINK A LITTLE PERSON IS FOR ME, BUT THEN THE BIG PERSON IS FOR MY WIFE? PLEASE DON'T DO THAT. LET'S LOOK AT THE CROSS FULLY AND THE FULLNESS THERE. FULL CROSS IS BECAUSE OF YOU, BECAUSE OF ME. AND JESUS WILL BE ASKING YOU: DO YOU LOVE ME? AND THEN YOU'RE GONNA ANSWER BRAVELY.
