00:01 Hello, my name is Frank Fournier.
00:03 I'm here to welcome you to Heaven's Point of View.
00:06 Today we're gonna study or we're gonna begin a study
00:08 on the Parable of the Prodigal Son.
00:11 Get your Bible, come and join us,
00:14 we're waiting for you.
00:44 I'd like to invite you to get your Bibles,
00:46 turn with me to Luke Chapter 15.
00:48 We're going to start reading with verse 11.
00:51 Now verse 11 is very short,
00:53 but I want you to notice,
00:54 in spite of the fact that is very sure.
00:56 There are many things that we can learn from there.
00:59 So in Luke Chapter 15 now
01:01 we're starting with verse 11 and it says this.
01:04 Jesus is speaking, "And He says, a certain man had two sons."
01:09 Now what can we learn from that?
01:12 Well, let's start with a question.
01:14 Who is the certain man in the parable?
01:17 As far as I can tell, as far as I know,
01:19 Jesus wanted to introduce His father to this people
01:23 that He was talking to at that time.
01:24 He wanted us to know
01:26 how His father relates to the human race
01:29 as it is divided into sons.
01:32 And so we think of the two sons here.
01:34 Who are they anyway?
01:35 Now it's possible that Jesus was dividing the two sons
01:39 that, you know, symbolically
01:41 thinking of the Jewish people as the elder brother,
01:45 thinking of the gentile people as the younger brother.
01:49 Also, it is very close parallel
01:52 to the story of Cannibal in Genesis Chapter 4.
01:56 But far benefit today,
01:57 we're just going to look at the two sons
01:59 as representing the human race.
02:01 And I have a question for you.
02:02 Which of the two sons was good
02:04 and which of the two sons was bad?
02:08 Now most people would like to answer that question
02:11 if they can by saying,
02:13 "Well, they're both good or they're both bad."
02:16 But that is insult.
02:18 I'd like to invite you to turn with me
02:20 to Mathew Chapter 19.
02:22 You can hold your fingers here in Luke Chapter 15.
02:25 Go with me to Mathew Chapter 19,
02:29 and I want you to see something.
02:31 There is a rich young ruler
02:32 who comes to Jesus in Mathew Chapter 19
02:36 and he has a very question to ask of the Lord.
02:39 He says, "What must I do to have eternal life?"
02:42 Now I don't know that
02:43 there is a more important question
02:44 that needs to be asked.
02:45 You and I need to ask that question.
02:49 What must I do to have eternal life?
02:51 That's in verse 16,
02:53 but I want you to notice the answer
02:55 that Jesus gives the rich young ruler, verse 17.
03:00 And he said to him, "Why do you call me good?
03:04 There is none good, but one, that is God."
03:08 Now who is it that saying this? Why is Jesus?
03:11 Just Jesus know what he's talking about?
03:13 Did you notice what he said?
03:15 No one is good, but God.
03:18 Even Revelation 3:10, and excuse me,
03:22 this is Romans 2, 3:10, and Romans 3:12 says,
03:29 "There is none rightness no not one,
03:32 there is none that do with good.
03:33 So we need to establish this thing first of all.
03:37 There is none good, not you, not I,
03:42 this is the basis of the Plan of Salvation.
03:44 We need to understand
03:46 that we are sinners in need of God's help.
03:50 So the younger son was lost in the world
03:55 and he didn't care, he wanted to sin
03:58 and he didn't care who knew it,
03:59 he was going to go out and sin.
04:01 But the elder brother had a different problem.
04:03 The elder brother was in the church.
04:05 The elder brother hadn't left his father
04:07 and his father in the parable represents God.
04:10 So in our way of thinking,
04:11 we may decide that the elder brother was
04:14 in the employee of God,
04:17 but there's something more conclusive.
04:19 If you'll turn with me to Luke Chapter 15 one more time
04:22 and let's go to verse 29.
04:24 In verse 29, in Luke Chapter 15,
04:28 this is after the younger brother have come back home,
04:30 the father has a feast for him,
04:32 the elder brother refuses to go to the feast,
04:35 the father goes out to entreat him.
04:38 Now I want you to see
04:39 what the elder brother has to say.
04:41 This is Luke Chapter 15 and we're looking at verse 29.
04:46 In Luke Chapter 15, watch what he says.
04:50 "And he answering said to his father look,
04:53 these many years do I serve thee,
04:55 neither transgressed I at any time thy commandments."
05:00 Can you imagine saying that?
05:02 Are you able to say that at no time
05:04 you ever transgressed the commandments of God?
05:06 Is there anyone that you know
05:08 that has not transgressed the commandments of God?
05:11 Why no?
05:12 The Bible says, "All have sinned
05:14 then come short of the glory of God.
05:15 And sin is the transgression of the law
05:17 but this young man was so religious
05:20 and he was so confident in his religion
05:23 that he felt like.
05:24 He had never transgressed the commandments of God.
05:29 That's amazing. Really it is.
05:32 And yet, there is something terribly wrong
05:34 with this young man's experience.
05:37 If you look at verse 23,
05:39 it says there, "And he was angry."
05:43 Why was he angry?
05:45 I mean, if your younger brother had thrown away his salvation,
05:49 if your younger brother had gone out
05:51 to disappear way his life and he comes home,
05:54 I mean after you've sent him a Bible
05:56 and after you've sent him some tracks
05:58 and you invite him back home
05:59 and he comes home, are you going to be angry?
06:01 Something's wrong with the elder brother's experience.
06:07 But there is something more conclusive here
06:11 that we can look.
06:12 If you look again at verse 29, you can see
06:14 after he says I've never transgressed the commandments.
06:17 Notice what he says.
06:19 "And yet you have never given me a kid
06:22 that I might make merry with my friends.
06:27 Is that right?
06:28 Now what does the kid represents symbolically in the Bible?
06:31 What does the lamb represent or a goat or a bullock?
06:34 In the Bible, the kid or the lamb
06:36 always represents Jesus and His atoning sacrifice.
06:40 What this young man is actually saying
06:42 is "I've never broken the commandments of God
06:46 and the merits of the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ
06:49 have never been applied to me."
06:51 Now is that possible?
06:52 Is it possible that a person could be keeping
06:55 all the commandments and still be lost?
06:58 This is the condition in which we find to this young man.
07:03 Now he didn't understand of course
07:05 that his type of religion does not save.
07:10 Do you understand it?
07:11 Do you know that there are three passages,
07:13 oh there maybe more than three passages in the scriptures
07:16 but I can point you to three passages in the scriptures
07:19 that says, "It isn't enough to be religious,
07:21 it isn't enough to belong to the church."
07:23 We need to have a personal relationship
07:25 with Jesus Christ.
07:26 We need to walk hand-in-hand, arm-in-arm,
07:29 shoulder-to-shoulder, heart-to-heart with Jesus Christ
07:31 if we can even begin to think
07:34 that we have salvation in our hearts.
07:37 So I'd like to invite you now
07:38 to turn with me to James Chapter 1.
07:42 Okay, let's read verse 26 James Chapter 1.
07:45 "If any man among you seem to be religious,
07:48 and bridles not his tongue,
07:51 but deceives his own heart, this man's religion is vain."
07:56 And this was the condition of the elder brother
08:00 in the Parable of the Prodigal Son.
08:02 He had all the trappings of religion
08:04 and yet in his heart when his brother comes home,
08:07 he should've been filled with joy,
08:09 but instead it says there that he was angry.
08:14 Jesus said in Mathew Chapter 12,
08:16 "Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks."
08:20 And so this is what we find
08:22 coming out of this young man's heart,
08:24 coming out of his mouth.
08:25 Now how is it with you when the words you speak,
08:29 do they reflect that Jesus is in your heart
08:31 or do they reflect the carnal nature?
08:35 I would like to have you turn with me
08:37 to Second Timothy Chapter 3.
08:40 In Second Timothy Chapter 3,
08:42 we find ourselves in the last days.
08:45 This is what Paul is want us, wants us to notice here.
08:49 We're in Second Timothy, we're in Chapter 3 in verse 1.
08:54 Second Timothy 3:1, "This know also,
08:58 that in the last days perilous times shall come."
09:02 And then he goes about to show us
09:04 what people will be like in the last days.
09:07 Look at verse 2,
09:09 "For men shall be lovers of their own selves,
09:11 they will be covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers,
09:15 disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy."
09:18 And it goes on and on and on
09:20 to describe what people will be like
09:21 in the day in which we are living right now,
09:24 but I want you to notice verse 5.
09:26 We're in Second Timothy 3, we're looking at verse 5.
09:30 It says that "The people in the last days
09:32 will have a form of godliness,
09:35 but denying the power thereof, from such turn away."
09:39 Friends, the power of God is in His word,
09:42 but there is a lot of people who are Christians today,
09:44 they have the rituals, they have the ceremonies,
09:47 they go to church, they have a form of godliness,
09:50 but they have no power
09:52 because they do not receive the word of God in their hearts,
09:56 in their lifestyles if you please.
09:59 And so here again we have a condition
10:02 of the young man in the parable.
10:05 He had all the trappings like, I say of religion,
10:08 but he had no power.
10:10 And so when his brother shows up,
10:11 he can't reveal the power of God
10:14 because it is driven by his carnal nature.
10:19 Again, I'd like to have you turn to the Book of Revelation.
10:22 We're in the Book of Revelation 3.
10:26 As you know, the Book of Revelation
10:28 is a book of prophecy
10:30 and it's mostly written in symbol.
10:33 If I was to say today that number 7 is a symbol.
10:39 What would you know that it means
10:41 or someone could tell us that it means perfection,
10:44 it means completeness, it means a whole.
10:46 And in the Book of Revelation, of course,
10:48 there is all kinds of number 7,
10:50 7 stars, 7 plagues, 7 churches, 7 candlestick,
10:55 7 spirits, 7 eyes and on and on it goes
10:58 always depicting the full picture.
11:01 Well, when I turn to the 7 churches
11:03 of Revelation 2 and 3
11:06 then we know we're looking at Christianity as a whole,
11:09 if I turn to the last era to the last church of the 7
11:13 then I know we're looking at the last days.
11:15 We're looking at Christianity in the last days.
11:18 And I'll have you look with me at verse 15,
11:22 we'll start right there.
11:23 Jesus says, "I know your works,
11:27 that you're neither cold nor hot."
11:28 I wish you're cold or hot.
11:32 So then because you're lukewarm and neither cold nor hot,
11:34 I will spue thee out of my mouth.
11:36 I will warm at you out of my mouth."
11:39 This is what Jesus is saying.
11:41 Now, what does He mean,
11:45 what's wrong with Christianity in the last days?
11:47 Well, if you look at verse 17,
11:49 we get a picture of what is wrong here.
11:53 Look at verse 17, "Because you say,
11:56 I am rich, spiritually rich,
11:59 and increased with goods, and have need of nothing,
12:02 you don't know that you are wretched,
12:05 and miserable and spiritually poor,
12:08 and spiritually blind, and spiritually naked."
12:13 What in the world is Jesus talking about today?
12:17 Well, friends, this is another picture
12:18 of course of the elder brother
12:21 in the Parable of the Prodigal Son.
12:23 The elder because he had never left the church,
12:25 because he had never left his father's employee,
12:28 because he thought he kept all the commandments of God,
12:31 he thought he was in, he thought he was all right,
12:34 he thought himself spiritually rich didn't realize
12:37 that he was spiritually poor, blind and naked.
12:42 Now I have a question for you.
12:46 Are you spiritually rich
12:48 or you spiritually poor, blind and naked?
12:52 If you were to take a walk Downtown, America
12:55 and you were met there
12:56 by a fine southern Baptists on a street corner
12:59 who would stop you, he would ask you a question.
13:01 Do you realize what question he would ask you?
13:04 He would say, "Are you save?"
13:06 Is that a good question?
13:07 Friends, it's a fantastic question,
13:09 and I hope you can answer it to the positive.
13:11 We have a salvational relationship with Jesus Christ.
13:15 Yes, I am save. Well, here is the question.
13:18 If you are saved.
13:20 Are you spiritually rich
13:22 or are you spiritually poor, blind and naked?
13:26 Well, don't answer that question.
13:28 It's a trick question.
13:30 Do you know why?
13:31 Because we have the idea
13:33 that the verse we've just read says
13:35 that those who are spiritually poor,
13:37 blind and naked are lost.
13:38 And that those who are spiritually rich
13:41 these people are saved.
13:43 But it isn't so.
13:45 You see, if you look at the verse very carefully
13:48 you'll see that the Bible is saying
13:51 that those who are lost do not know
13:54 that they are spiritually poor, blind and naked.
13:57 They do not know their spiritual condition.
14:01 But the saved because they've come closed to Jesus,
14:04 they happened to know
14:06 their need of His help all the time.
14:10 Did you see it?
14:11 We are spiritually poor.
14:13 We are spiritually blind.
14:15 We are spiritually need naked
14:17 and because we are relay hold upon Jesus all the more.
14:21 There's a little book called "Steps to Christ"
14:23 in page 64 it says this,
14:25 "The closure we come to Jesus
14:26 the more faulty we appear in our own eyes."
14:30 Do you know why we appear so faulty
14:32 when we come close to Jesus?
14:33 Because the contrast is just so.
14:36 How is it when you come close to perfection?
14:38 Your imperfections are placed in the light of course
14:43 and we see ourselves for what we really are.
14:45 This is what it means to be a Christian.
14:48 So if today you are satisfied with your Christian experience,
14:51 can I tell you something?
14:53 You are in danger
14:56 because you and I are sinners in need of Jesus Christ.
15:01 I'd like to look at this word poor for a minute.
15:04 Turn with me to Mathew 3.
15:08 I've got my Bible here.
15:09 We're going to go to Mathew 3.
15:11 This is where the beatitudes start.
15:13 The great, great sermon that Jesus preached
15:16 on the Mount of Blessing
15:18 and we're gonna start--
15:20 Excuse me, I said Mathew 3.
15:21 I want you to turn to verse-- to Chapter 5 rather.
15:24 We're gonna look at verse 3.
15:25 This is Mathew 5. We're looking at verse 3.
15:28 It's the very first beatitude.
15:31 Look at to that with me.
15:32 This is Mathew 5:3.
15:35 "Blessed are the poor in spirit,
15:38 for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
15:41 You know, friends, it took me forever
15:44 to understand this verse.
15:46 I grew up in a certain denomination.
15:49 We were poor folk up there
15:50 in Northern Canada and Ontario,
15:53 and my father as far as I know
15:55 only knew one verse in the Bible
15:58 and it was this verse only he used recite it
16:00 out of the Book of Luke.
16:02 You understand?
16:03 And into Book of Luke it says,
16:04 "Blessed are the poor for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
16:08 Wonderful. Because we were poor.
16:10 My father had the very verse that he needed.
16:12 "Blessed out the poor for theirs is a kingdom of heaven."
16:15 But there is something about that
16:16 that I didn't understand.
16:18 I knew a lot of poor people
16:20 who were not very Christ like
16:22 and it just didn't make sense to me.
16:25 And there is another thing that didn't make sense.
16:30 Do you know that if Jesus is God
16:33 and Jesus comes down from heaven down into this world--
16:36 It would seem to me in any case
16:38 that He would scan the whole world
16:40 looking for someone who is spiritually rich?
16:43 And as soon as He would find someone
16:45 who is spiritually rich He would say,
16:47 "Blessed are the spiritually rich
16:49 for theirs is the kingdom of God."
16:51 But Jesus never said that.
16:54 Do you know why?
16:56 Because there is no one in this world
16:59 that is spiritually rich.
17:00 There is none good, no, not one.
17:03 There is none that doing that does righteously,
17:06 there is none that do with good, no, not one.
17:11 Can you begin to see
17:12 what Jesus is trying to teach us here?
17:15 Blessed are they who feel their spiritual poverty
17:19 for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
17:21 In the book Desire of Ages page 300 it says,
17:23 "From the soul that feels his need nothing is withheld."
17:28 Do you know that our need is everything?
17:31 Our need is everything.
17:32 And this is what God response to.
17:35 He doesn't respond to our perfection
17:37 because there is no perfection.
17:39 He doest response to the gift that we bring
17:41 because everything that we bring has been given to us
17:44 first of all by God to begin with.
17:46 He response to our need
17:49 and we have a great need greater than we understand
17:51 and I would hope through these lessons
17:53 that we might come to the place where
17:54 we begin to understand what our needs are.
17:59 If you'll turn with me to the Book of John
18:02 we're going to go to the Book of John Chapter 9.
18:05 Now in John Chapter 9,
18:07 we're gonna look at the word blind
18:08 we've just look that the word poor
18:10 and we begin to understand
18:12 that is more blessed to be poor than to be rich
18:15 because that's exactly what we are.
18:17 We are spiritually poor in need Jesus Christ.
18:20 Well, now let's look at the word blind.
18:23 Together we're looking at John Chapter 9
18:26 starting with verse 39.
18:29 And Jesus said, "For judgment I am come into this world
18:33 that they which see not might see,
18:36 and that they which see might be made blind."
18:40 Now tell me which one are you?
18:42 Are you of them that see or are you blind?
18:46 Well, friends, you'd better be blind
18:48 because Jesus came for the blind,
18:50 He did not come for the seeing.
18:54 Now when He said this,
18:57 there were Pharisees standing around.
18:59 And do you know that they were insulted
19:02 when He said that?
19:03 Oh, they were.
19:04 You see, they had gone to seminary.
19:06 He'd been through Rabbinical Schools.
19:08 They had been through the schools of the prophet,
19:11 they had become the pastors of the day
19:13 and they understood the Bible,
19:14 they had studied it with all their hearts
19:16 and now they considered themselves
19:18 the guide to the blinds to the blind people
19:21 and Jesus is now telling them that it is the blind
19:25 that He came for,
19:26 and not those who thought they could see.
19:29 They were insulted. Look with me at verse 40 now.
19:32 We're in John 9, we're looking at verse 40.
19:36 And some of the Pharisees
19:37 which were with Him heard these words
19:40 and said to him, "Are you saying that we are blind?"
19:44 They were incredulous, they couldn't believe it.
19:47 No way, we are educated.
19:49 Isn't that amazing to you?
19:51 You know, there are dangers in being educated
19:54 and now I wouldn't stop a man from being educated.
19:56 I wish for sure that I had
19:58 far more education than I have today.
20:00 Nevertheless there is a danger
20:03 because when we're educated we seem to think that we know
20:06 when the Bible says, "The man knows nothing
20:09 as he ought to know it."
20:10 That's in First Corinthians 8:2, if you were interested to know.
20:15 Now these men were insulted.
20:21 They didn't know how to relate to it
20:23 and Jesus decides to give one more punch
20:26 to His little sermon here.
20:28 We're looking at verse 41.
20:30 Jesus said to them,
20:33 "If you were blind you should have no sin.
20:37 But now you say we see,
20:40 therefore here the sin remains."
20:46 All that Jesus is trying to say here
20:49 is that we need guidance.
20:53 Jeremiah 10:23 says,
20:56 "It is not in man that walketh to direct his steps."
21:00 Oh, there is the way that seems right to a man,
21:02 Proverbs 14:12, but it says there
21:04 that the end thereof is the ways of death.
21:07 God expects us to acknowledge Him in all our ways,
21:11 do not lean on our own understanding.
21:13 And so this is what Jesus was saying to these people
21:16 and this is what was wrong with the elder brother
21:19 in the Parable of the Prodigal Son.
21:21 He had full confidence in his Christian experience,
21:24 not realizing that his type of religion does not same.
21:31 Now that's the question.
21:33 What about your type of religion?
21:35 Does it save?
21:37 You know, when I was 30 years old
21:40 I was asked, but actually I was elected
21:42 to become the president of a small institution
21:45 in Northern Ontario in Canada, they made me president.
21:49 I was only three years old, as a Christian
21:51 I hardly knew anything of Christianity
21:52 much less that I know anything about leadership,
21:56 but this is what I was given, I was given that position.
21:59 Well, the man who was responsible
22:01 for putting me in that position felt responsible.
22:04 He felt like, he needed to do something to nurture me,
22:07 but the man lived in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
22:10 Now you might realize there is a long, a long way
22:14 between Chattanooga, Tennessee and Northern Ontario and Canada
22:18 and in those days, by the way there were no cell phones.
22:21 Now and there was no internet
22:23 and there was no communication
22:24 unless you got onto telephone
22:26 and made a long distance phone call, you understand?
22:28 And those things were expensive in those days.
22:30 And so he didn't call very often.
22:33 But he had a method.
22:34 And so he would call me up on the phone
22:36 and he would say, "Listen,
22:37 there is going to be a little convention
22:39 over here in New Hampshire over there in Massachusetts
22:42 or wherever it might be
22:43 and he'd say I want you to make your way down there
22:46 because I've already organized for you
22:48 to preach the word of God to these people
22:50 and then after the convention
22:52 they're going to have a board meeting,
22:53 they're going to invite you
22:55 and through this you're going to begin
22:56 to get a little training,
22:57 you want leadership looks like in the type of work
23:00 that you're doing.
23:01 And so I would do this.
23:02 I would follow through
23:03 and he would guide me to this place and to that place
23:06 and this was his way of nurturing me.
23:09 Well, now we come to 1980.
23:12 In 1980, he calls me up and he says,
23:14 "There is going to be a little convention
23:17 in a place called Eden Valley in Northern Colorado,
23:21 and I want you to make your way over there.
23:22 I've already organized for you to preach the word of God there
23:25 and I thought to myself, no way."
23:29 Northern Colorado?
23:32 Do you know how far that is from Northern Ontario?
23:36 That is a long way.
23:37 And I wasn't used to traveling
23:38 and now I was going to go by myself by car
23:41 all the way down there.
23:42 It just seemed formidable.
23:43 I didn't want to do it,
23:45 but he convinced me that I should, and so I did.
23:48 On the very first night, on the very first day
23:50 that I took off, I traveled for 14 hours.
23:54 I ended up in Southern Michigan
23:57 in a little place called Oak Heaven.
24:00 Now some of you might know where Oak Haven is.
24:02 I don't know.
24:03 In any case, they gave me a room to sleep
24:06 and I slept all night, everything was wonderful.
24:08 I woke up to singing.
24:10 People, apparently
24:11 I had been given a room above a little chapel
24:14 and in the morning they were having worship
24:17 and this young man, a young black man was speaking,
24:19 I don't remember what he had to say,
24:20 but he said this one thing.
24:22 He said, "Seventh-day Adventists are self-righteous."
24:26 And I went like,
24:27 what in the world is this guy is saying?
24:29 Why is he saying that?
24:31 Oh, by the way,
24:33 Seventh-day Adventists are self-righteous.
24:35 Oh, yes, we are.
24:36 As a mater of fact, everyone is self-righteous.
24:39 This is the sin of the aid.
24:40 Self-righteousness sinfully means
24:42 that we put confidence in ourselves
24:44 when we ought to be putting faith in God.
24:46 This is the battle that every man has to fight.
24:49 And so it's no, it's no surprise
24:51 that a Seventh-day Adventist would be self-righteous.
24:54 As a matter of fact everyone else in the world
24:56 is self-righteous.
24:57 This is our battle, but I didn't understand that.
24:59 I'm sitting there and I'm thinking to myself,
25:02 that can't be, that can't be.
25:05 Well, I send up a prayer to God.
25:07 I don't know if you've ever done that.
25:08 I mean, in the middle of a congregation
25:09 and I say to the Lord, "Lord, am I self-righteous?
25:13 And do you know that God was spotted.
25:16 He said, "Yes, you are self-righteous."
25:18 I don't know how God responds, but He gave me a thought.
25:21 I didn't originate and He was telling me
25:23 that I was self-righteous.
25:26 And so I continued to ask,
25:27 how can that be, how can that be?
25:29 And He said to me, He asked me a question.
25:31 "What is it that you complained the most about?"
25:33 And I said,
25:35 "I don't have enough time for my devotions,
25:36 I don't have enough time for my Bible,
25:38 I don't have enough time for my prayer time."
25:44 And He said to me, "Listen,
25:46 if for one minute
25:49 you could feel the weight of the responsibilities
25:51 that I've put on your shoulders,
25:53 if for one minute you could feel the weight of the responsibility
25:56 of being the husband of a wife,
25:58 of being a father of three children,
26:00 of being the leader of an institution,
26:01 of being the head elder in the church,
26:04 a witness in the community.
26:05 For one minute, you could feel any of those responsibilities.
26:08 You could do nothing, but pray.
26:10 Don't tell me, you don't have time to pray.
26:13 The only reason you don't is
26:14 because you go off in your own strength
26:16 to meet your responsibilities.
26:18 You are self-righteous.
26:24 So now tell me, friends, are you self-righteous?
26:27 Do you ever complained
26:28 that you don't have enough time for your Bible,
26:30 that you don't have enough time for your devotions,
26:33 that you don't have enough time for God?
