Hello this is Matt slick from the Metzler glide podcast right from the Christian faith and lay out our foundational truth of God's word for Trojan Truth Network Ponderosa starting in just a few seconds and enjoy it, share it, but most of all, thank you for listening and for choosing The Truth Podcast Network this is Truth Network French masculine Broward time more transparent. So sit back and masculine without sale were still on the boat folks, you know how we like to always give each other a hard time about what the topic is whose topic it is an try to put all the pressure on them to come up with the talking points of failure lead to show whatever we do well. Sam with his wisdom as he's going to be out for couple weeks don't smoke things we do miss them. These left Danny and I charge for two weeks. This is part of the bravest thing that man's overdone so I know all you longtime listeners out there which means Andy's mom and my mom out there that we really appreciate y'all listen at the you know those two actually know or talk about grocery Apollo. The three of you probably have been listening as long we really like to rip each other about whose topic it is well in this week when he made the mistake of letting me hosting site will show you in the topic, and Ives, or rebellious one into my mind says. Why do we need a topic so that is our topic this week is why do we need a topic and as my brothers are pointing out in the first show. If you haven't listed that this but the pause button. Go back was the first show in in the then most of this one on the podcast but they pointed right to Jesus as I knew they would, which the sky was my whole point. When I started with it topic was, why do we need Jesus.

You know, why do we need a Savior. That's what really came into my mind was like why do we need a topic because if were not pointed in a direction if were traveling aimlessly for stucco. The roundabout is and he was talking about previous show were not on the path with God were off on her own path and we own it and that's not what God wants. God wants us to surrender to him so that we can join him in his path and that narrow path that we can travel with him so that were not just aimlessly wandering trying to take a bunch of things in their own self-control, which is one of the hardest things for us to do is to surrender to Jesus fully and as we talked about a little bit on the rig on the original show. So we left a few clips in the bag for the after-hours and I like to go to Mr. Marsh with his hard to believe Andy Griffith clip is a shocker right so with this being a topic and maybe not out of it was a Rodney, this is not your topic, I'm kinda confused but that's exactly what you do the clip is from Andy Griffith show. Gomer has lost his job with garage and in his apartment or room in the back of the garage so Andy has put them up for a little while and Gomer is living in as we say around here is that the smaller story Jesus self absorbed is clueless as to how his actions affect other people, and so is creating a little bit of chaos at the Taylor house and so Andy stranding is a risk of the been up all night so he escaped to his office and Nestor will pick the clip up that job or advice and turn a blind through speaking alive. I get much sleep last.

He didn't stop no I mean appreciate what you're trying to but all that stalling in this with the vacuum cleaner and saying and never think of as much racket back to sleep hello I'm sorry Van. Well it's all punishing yourself inside or anything.

Just try to keep it down little flattered and bending like a sign that say you love to the job. Now you know anything about me, like Gomer, about three refresh happy meal and he brought them back on topic. Will you will give me rest because of his actions. Gomer is actually pointing back to.

It is so often in my whole life you God had to bring me back to hey here's the topic. Your actions are doing this is because of clueless to the fact of how my actions affecting other people and the unit and I love the way the clip closes goes is going to reply to be a butcher and he says you know how to cut meat.

You think you left me that was again clueless and but you as far as topics go into. We Jesus compared us to sheep a lot and it was not a compliment. It was, you know the direction we need someone to lead us in a direction and you're doing that would topic the little arrow shared the first show was that you hearing other people's perspective on the same thing.

Is it really does help me because I get loan blinders own and I'll run off the bridge and sometimes hearing what others have to say will take you off topic that's the other thing that's a burden.

Sometimes when were doing that. It's like you hear that in sight, never takes that rabbit like your talk about Harold and it's very easy for me to be so intense on what's in front of me right now that I do forget the larger story that's one thing for me that at work. A lot of times it's it's one of things right and I just got pause. Let things happen.

It's okay now what's the intent of this cruisers so many problems so we place we can go. We can we can say okay I may be in this Bible study. I want to go do that service thing over here. I'm do this and you find yourself in so many things at your disposal me directions. He does want to come to give up. You know I that's right Sam in his season right now he's really engaged in some things needs is wholehearted and that's really wonderful.

I just know for myself that I've got enough it off and she off right now that I don't need to take anymore in that's it's a good place to be as nice to other comfort of I've got and I got enough going on. I don't need to be burdened with it. Jimmy only get onto yours. I really, really love this clip for this we do, hit on the side things.

This movie is that I usually can anticipate what's happening in movies before I go to this is one of the few in my life is blowing me out of my seat. It's from the original matrix and this is Fred. Last week I complained about Tom Cruise being God in the clip of a lot better with Lawrence Fishburne being the God in this clip were gonna listen to what he has to say to you matrix it is all around us, even now in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window when you turn on your television. You can see when you go to church when you pay your tax.

It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from that you are a slave like everyone else you were born into bondage born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste of prison for you.

Unfortunately, no one can tell what matrixes you have to see it for yourself. This is your last chance after this there is no turning. Take the blue pill historian wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to read you stay in Wonderland and I show you how member all I'm offering is the truth thing. This is a movie to me did parallel the gospel quite a bit. Lotta people don't see that life is the best. She only sees Jesus at every movie we can see, I play that game as well. But in this he's talking about being a prisoner not even know you are and that's what living in the flesh, living in the world is it's the only reality you know, if you don't know Jesus and what is being offered to Neo here is the truth.

That's all he promises, but the truth is a person is Jesus Christ. And that one of things that hit me about this is me as having a pretty miserable life. You know something's wrong. He can't put his finger on it.

What's going on here and so he starts acting out in society and gets in trouble and that lands them in this lame and he has no clue that living in the physical world that he thinks he is in his allusion until he takes the red pill and goes down the rabbit hole.

He does not know what reality is. And for me this is what while we all need God. They were sinners, but Lotta. Most sinners don't know it until they've seen the law understood that's a problem and you don't have a solution tell you get the Jesus Christ and he's fighting battles but in the 80s not succeeding at it before he gets in and then it becomes a mighty warrior once he's in the spiritual realm which is their reality as opposed to the deceived realm Marianne as being batteries you haven't seen that movie, I guess your five or six years old, but you will get a chance to something a bit for saying just to see that thing through their for our younger listeners. That's the two or three that he was talking about earlier so that's that's always the challenges how do we see God in everything hard. How do you go live your life. Walk down the street go to your job drive down the highway and yet keep your focus on Jesus.

While there's so many distractions in our world today you knock your seat you look in your eyes you wanted the desire to go after the wind is that desire come, he draws us to that place in little pieces and the more you are obedient and those moving forward and one gives you a little more drawing more draw a little more of the God of God is he so willing to give us as much of himself as we want. Yeah and I just think back to me. I wasn't searching for Jesus. Nobody ever searches for Jesus by was very clear that none seek him, but he seeks us and then once the truth is finally revealed. Just like you said there when you want to cling to it going to grab a hold of it you can see it in people's eyes in their hearts and how they act and what they do.

Just becomes a part of who they are. This continue to grow and want to be fed even more and it doesn't mean that they're perfect you got it all together also find most of the ones who walk with him daily. Just because they know their own state. Peter Paul recited me and I quit talking than the first show about the blocking in the blood of Jesus in the mire in the pit and that that's that's where were at. When we truly can see art this is a stark contrast between us and him. It becomes much more life force Jim. I forget the name of the character matrix but there is a Judas and what I thought of when you're saying that is that we can know the truth and want to get back into the world and get away from it if if those are the things that mean the most to us and it is a danger that we all can face from time to time and there are pastors that have fallen L atheists because they couldn't handle the truth is somewhere they were a different soil than the good soil whether clip we can have three soils.

Harold us is going to summarize this thing of topic or no topic by saying that there are two dangers. One deals with each subject.

You can learn less and less about more and more until finally you know nothing about everything, or the reverse is you know more and more about less and listen to you know everything about nothing. So we we need to be careful about choosing what we learned how we learn. I can't wait to get the podcasts I can rewind at about 10 times what I think she forgot what you said right there.

I know, and Harold landed on this tonight. I love that so the last clip since I missed her last clip now my clip is about a man named Simon cynic. This is a clip that attaches the whole talk not just equipment. This is going to be the preamble, how he sets up his talk, but this cold start with why and Simon cynic uses this to kinda help people understand how to go either promote something or to run a business or to get people to follow your cause because it's about my belief in your belief coming together so we believe the same thing so we'll see if it wasn't, we assume even we know why we do what we do with and how do you explain when things don't go as we assume or better. How do you explain when others are able to achieve things that seem to defy all of the assumptions.

For example, why is Apple so innovative year after year after year after year there more innovative than all their competition and yet they're just a computer company there just like everyone else. They have the same access to the same talent the same agencies the same consultant the same media, then why is it that they seem to have something different. Why is it that Martin Luther King led the civil rights movement. He wasn't the only man who suffered in the pre-civil rights America and he certainly wasn't the only great orator of the day by him and why is it that the Wright brothers were able to figure out control powered man flight when there were certainly other teams were better qualified, better funded and they didn't powered man flight. The Wright brothers beat them to it. There's something else at play here.

About 3 1/2 years ago I made a discovery in this discovery profoundly changed my view on how I thought the world worked in it even family change the way in which I operated as it turns out there's a pattern as it turns out all the great and inspiring leaders and organizations in the world.

Whether it's Apple or Martin Luther King or the Wright brothers. They will think and communicate the exact same way. And it's the complete opposite to everyone else. All I did was codified and it's probably the world's simplest idea I call it the Golden Circle. Why, how, what this little idea explains why some organizations and some leaders are able to inspire where others aren't, and what is really coming across year was talking about things that we talk about building together. It's smaller story larger story small small story is the is the what what the thing is, you're making her I'm just I just go to work like this at a job I get paid while nobody gets inspired over that you get inspired by what other people believe in what they say and what they stand for the bigger larger purpose of things us. The larger story are larger story of course is Jesus. That's where we focus our attention. That's where we want to go with our story and say how can I step into it with him, praying into those things and ask how is it that I can walk a life like we must talk about in obedience. We are going be perfect at it.

We are going to follow them struggle bit that's where thank God he puts other godly people into our lives and allows us to stumble and fall with her brothers and sisters in that you help pick each other back up and get refocused and reenergized indigent in Jesus Christ himself.

I know it work like this. This talk here. It helps people to get focus back on the bigger picture. Why are we doing what were doing so as you're moving through anything in your life in your in your hurting or maybe maybe things are going great. That's one that's where I can really go wrong when things are going well and I think my focus off of Jesus.

Usually better there than what I'd even easier there than what I do when I'm having troubles, but when you things are going well at your not focusing back on what you need to be.

That's where have net positive essay where my going when my focusing my life on and if it's not Jesus you're you need to stop and pause and focus your life on him and there's so many ways we can do that so it's from asked my band of brothers. How do you guys get your focus back. I know what I know Mr. Gilmore as many ways I can speak to the offer of intimacy in our it's it's like the stuff of a thousand love movies whenever you know where you see that moment where the girl kinda blushes and the guy is gazing at her and there's this park and there is that like she's the you know she's the one or he's the one, and you have the sense of I can. I really can trust. I really can't have intimacy.

I really can have that place of delight in my soul like there is the actual you know what were medicating in so many different ways.

With all the little things that we go off and try to do to get to that place that only is available inside your heart in intimacy with him and oh it that you know he gives you his story. Like if you watch those movies you can see that they share each other's story right. They tell this is what happened in my life. That's what happened in your life and and and there's a connection will God gave us his story in the Bible, but we have to share our story through prayer right through our connection with him and in developing that relationship to where we can get to that point. From my perspective of like oh he loves me more than anything I would ever see in one of those movies were or anything that I can experience there and how can I get to that place and how can I experience that so that like Moses, you know, he came down off the top of that mountain and began to put a veil over his face because he was shining so bright right and because he had been in the in in intimacy with God like face-to-face on the top of the mountain while truth is available for every single one of us every single day. You know and and and how are we going to engage with her band of brothers in order to choose to make our way to that place if we don't focus like you guys are all saying on the on the topic on what is the why and I love that clip Rodney I really do that that those were people who had a passionately wholehearted that something old to have the passion to go wholehearted at intimacy with God is like man enough for me.

That's where I want to be yeah that's that is a place that it's indescribable. Other than in the best thing to do is when you can see other people walking in. That's one of the things that happened to me when I walked in my first boot camp was to see other men basking in the glory of God in telling the story of what it was happiness, or it was brokenness or where they were at. You could see that and you could see were you have real men sharing real stories of life and there's life inside of that that comes out of those men into your life into past couple weeks with subdivision in I've always viewed. I guess that that will Robbie would describe it is that intimacy with God is his mountaintop experience.

You know where you your up on the mountain and edits like that, but with the intimacy is in the Valley is will because you know this thing of gold to my hands and with air conditioning, then you know just you had a come to realize that you know what I've had a rough, but I had that roof and what I realize is that when things are going good. I get very spiritual with the reality of it is will we get the Valley. I come back to the smaller story and it's always me and one of my think I'm known for saying is that you I get into that. Nobody knows the trouble of seeing that that what I call back if it is elude me now to train Rick. No survivors. There one of sated that to to get called back into there is a larger story and God will set intimacy. For me, regardless of what's going life that he's he's there, and that's tough going.

Maybe not for you guys of yell saved, sanctified, and all that stuff but I'm a work in progress, but it was about to cross the finish line is writer Mark oh my is different than that, but each of us have a different story.

I get into the alum doing all these good things, and I know it's not about works, but when I'm in that feeling like okay well I never really handled rough times in my life Carolyn) otherwise, but I've always felt like I've been blessed with. That's a problem to because I know that in my very worst I'm still as Robbie left his favorite, and he's he owes me nothing, and he's given yes and Andy, thank you so much for: in and given us your wisdom from overseas.

I want to yeah want to make sure invite you guys to boot camp members November 17 to the 20th say that we can before Thanksgiving, letting me remember that we have the far EE free Robbie. The entrenchments coming up really soon.
