26 Jan 05/16/10 Dying at the Cross, Part 2 (Sunday Service Archive)
(BOND YouTube Premiere, 4 PM PT, Weds., Jan 27, 2021)
BOND Sunday Service, May 16, 2010: Jesse Lee Peterson talks more with people at church more about what it means to die at the cross — which we discussed two weeks prior. Men and women talk about getting an idea in their head about what things mean, and their pride and ego getting involved with “changing” themselves. Do you have to “hit rock bottom” before dying at the cross? We also talk about the notion of storing up earthly treasures, rather than treasure in heaven.
In this 16-minute clip, Jesse references Matthew 6: 19-21, in which Jesus says: Do not store up treasures on earth where moth and woodworms (or rust) destroy them, and thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures for yourself in heaven…. For wherever your treasure is, there your heart will be too. It’s not just material things, but ego-feeding things like relationships or people. As a younger man, for example, Jesse used to put his heart, pride, and faith in whatever woman he was dating.
How do you change? Satan even gets involved in your desire to change. How do you take up your cross and follow Christ? Know yourself to know whether you are born again of God, or of your father the Devil.
