Run Your Race // Stop Comparing Yourself To Others // Fun Month at TC(Week 3) Pastor Craig Groeschel

16 Gsh 2020
110 472 Shikime

It is Fun Month here at TC and this Sunday is Laugh Out Loud Sunday! Today we had a very special guest, Pastor Craig Groeschel! Pastor Craig and his wife, Amy started Life.Church in a two-car garage in Edmond, Oklahoma in January 1996. Since then, Life.Church has grown to include dozens of locations all over the United States! Craig and Amy Groeschel married in 1991 and have six children. Pastor Craig is a New York Times bestselling author of books on a wide variety of topics. He also speaks frequently at leadership events and conferences worldwide and hosts the top-ranking Craig Groeschel Leadership Podcast.
Do you constantly feel burned out and exhausted by the pressure of comparison? Today we learned from Pastor Craig that we can’t faithfully follow Jesus if we are always comparing ourselves to others. If you struggle with comparing yourself to others, this message is for you!
Join us for service online every Sunday at 11am (CST) and weekly for NoonDay Prayer at 12pm (CST).
If you received Christ through this message, text SAVED to 918-992-7623.

  • I even started comparing myself & my life to other Christians!!! Especially those that seemed more “spiritual” than me or like they had a closer walk with Jesus than me. I had to go to my father and say...thank you God that my walk doesn’t have to look like anyone else!!!

  • I was just literally (1 minute agi) talking to my son on the phone. I was just telling him that I have been comparing myself, my business, my new book and my upcoming event (Nov 14th) to others and feeling extremely small and jealous ( trying to be honest). Who knew that this would come across my ALworld feed! I didn't type the sermon in ... I was just working at home and I didn't even know what the title was - nor had ever heard of Pastor Groeschel!!! Wow! I have the task of calling businesses to tomorrow for possible co-sponsorships of my book event. I wrote on a yellow Post-It, "Kamara - Do NOT get scared of possible rejection! Do IT and Do NOT procrastinate!!!" www.KamaraMikel.com

  • Honestly, this is stuff I've heard many times, but its so interesting to hear it from a different perspective every time. Usually, I don't listen to Pastor Groeschel, but there something about this sermon that keeps reminding me that my identity doesn't come from people, but to trust in the true living God. First and foremost. Great sermon.

  • Unfortunately, I feel as though I did not do Gods purpose because I’ve been too mentally ill. So therefore someone else is where I’d like to be. I’ve been working on myself but I was traumatized and before that I was lit on fire for my purpose. I was going to make it. I almost see no way to make it now because I don’t have any motivation, I’m mentally ill, and I have a hard time being happy since I have ptsd. I feel like maybe I am paying for my mistakes I’ve made or something and I now will never be able to receive my purpose

  • I find myself constantly comparing myself with people, my friends included. I quit my job in January, cause God told me to; and now I don't have a job and I feel like everyone else is moving on in their life, career, relationships and I'm just here stagnant. I'm angry that I'm jealous of people but I still compare myself to them. Social media makes it worse, with people posting their achievements and I'm depressed that I can't show mine off too. Thank you Lord for this word. Deleted my social media platforms until I find complete satisfaction in Christ. I am fixing my eyes on Jesus only

  • •You wouldn’t call yourself by someone else’s name and neither would Yahuah and Yahusha. Acts 4:10-12 10 then know this, you and all the people of Yisrael: It is by the name of Yahusha HaMashiach of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom Yahuah raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. 11 Yahusha is “‘the stone you builders rejected, which has become the cornerstone.’ 12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” Yahusha said he came in his fathers name, “literally” Yahuchanon (Jn)5:43 43 I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him. His fathers name is Yahuah. His name is Yahusha. YAHU...ah .... The Father. YAHU...sha.... The Son. Yahusha came in his fathers name. Jesus came in his own name. 1 Yahuchannon (Jn)3:23 23 And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Yahusha HaMashiach , and to love one another as he commanded us. Yahuchanon (Jn)17:11 B 11 ..... Qodesh Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one. Yahuah did not give his son the English name Jesus. Yahuchanon (Jn)1:12 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of Yahuah. Christian Bibles have changed Yahusha, firstly to IESOUS in 325 AD , then 400 years ago changed IESOUS to modern day Jesus. The letter J was not even invented until about 400 years ago making it impossible for the name of the Mashiach to be Jesus Christ. Keep sinning after you have been told the truth. Hebrews 10:26, 27, & 31 26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, 27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of Yahuah. 31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living Elohiym. You have been told the true names of Yahuah and Yahusha. If you continue to call a “Yahuah” “the Lord” or “God”and continue to call “Yahusha HaMashiach” “Jesus Christ” then according to the above scriptures you will be condemned. All false teachers use the false name Jesus Christ. The names in the Bible you are reading has been changed not transliterated not translated but CHANGED! Only those whom Yahuah is calling will accept this message. The rest will only argue a fools argument that is non scriptural.

  • •You wouldn’t call yourself by someone else’s name and neither would Yahuah and Yahusha. Yahuah loves you so much that he sent his only begotten son Yahusha to die for your sins. However Yahuah is also just. So if you deny the name Yahusha then Yahuah will deny you and eternal punishment awaits you. Acts ‪4:10-12‬ 10 then know this, you and all the people of Yisrael: It is by the name of Yahusha HaMashiach of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom Yahuah raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. 11 Yahusha is “‘the stone you builders rejected, which has become the cornerstone.’ 12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” Yahusha said he came in his fathers name, “literally” Yahuchanon (Jn)‪5:43‬ 43 I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him. His fathers name is Yahuah. His name is Yahusha. YAHU...ah .... The Father. YAHU...sha.... The Son. Yahusha came in his fathers name. Jesus came in his own name. 1 Yahuchannon (Jn)‪3:23‬ 23 And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Yahusha HaMashiach , and to love one another as he commanded us. Yahuchanon (Jn)‪17:11‬ B 11 ..... Qodesh Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one. Yahuah did not give his son the English name Jesus. Yahuchanon (Jn)‪1:12‬ 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of Yahuah.

All false teachers use the false name Jesus Christ. The names in the Bible you are reading has been changed not transliterated not translated but CHANGED! Why? Because satan does not want you to be saved! Satan does not want you to know the names of Yahuah and Yahusha. That’s why Satan gave the names the Lord God and Jesus Christ. If you can accept the above it’s because Yahuah is calling you. Only those whom Yahuah is calling will accept this message. The rest will only argue a fools argument that is non scriptural.
