Hallelujah. Glory to God. If you can shout over that, something is wrong with you. I said; we’re living in the overflow. Hallelujah. Amen. You guys did an awesome job. I love that song. Say it with me; bless the Lord, oh my soul. I’m living in the overflow. And give the Lord your best shout right now. Okay. Hallelujah. Amen. Praise God. You can be seated. Hallelujah. My, my, my.

We’ve got a wonderful surprise for you today; the church in South Africa is live and they are with us in this service today. So, look up there, I think they’re going to be on the screen here in a few months. There they are over in South Africa. Everybody turn to that camera right there and wave at them. Hallelujah. Amen. Pastor John and Sharon Bendixen, been with Jerry Savelle Ministries for many, many years. And we are so grateful for them. Grateful for their faithfulness over all these many, many years. And guys, we can hardly wait to get back to South Africa. Amen. We are as we say in Texas, we are chomping at the bit. Hallelujah. I believe we’re going to get there soon. Amen. Hallelujah.
Well, I have another surprise for you. My granddaughter, Madison, has just graduated from Texas Tech. Stand up, Madison. Amen. I might add she maintained a 4.0 for the entirety of her college career. What do you call that Summa Cum Laude? Well, I graduated ‘thank you laude.’ Hallelujah. We’re so proud of you, Madison. And we’re so glad that you’re back home for a season. She’s already taken a position in St. Simon Island, Georgia, as the event coordinator for a resort and her grandpa and grandmother is going to be visiting that resort quite often. Hallelujah. Amen. Praise God.
You have your Bibles with you? Let’s open them first of all to Matthew chapter 9. Matthew chapter 9 and I’m sure this is a very familiar story to many of you. Let’s begin in verse 27, 27And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him crying and saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy on us. 28And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord. 29Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith, be it unto you. 30And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it (Matthew 9:27-30 KJV). Now notice the phrase, according to your faith be it unto you. Everything that God has for us is received by faith. I’ll say it again. Everything that God has for us is received by faith. There’s no other way to obtain it. Amen. That’s the reason why the Bible says, 38The just shall live by faith (Hebrews 10:38 KJV). Amen. How many of you want everything that God has for you? Look at your neighbour and say, “I want everything that God has for me.” Amen. Now, let’s take a look at a couple of verses here talking about everything God has for us. You’re all familiar with John 10:10. And in the latter part of that verse, Jesus said, 10I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly (John 10:10 NKJV). The Passion Translation says, 10But I have come to give you everything in abundance, more than you expect—life in its fullness until you overflow! (John 10:10 TPT). So we just got through singing about living in the overflow. That’s exactly what Jesus came for, is not only to redeem you from the hand of the enemy, and from the bondage of the enemy, and not only give you the privilege of having eternal life and spending eternity with Him. But he also came that you and I might enter into this life and live in the overflow. Look, at your neighbour and say, “I intend to live in the overflow.”
Now and 2 Corinthians chapter 9 and verse 8, and I’m just going to read this from The Passion Translation. 8…He will make you overflow with abundance in every good thing you do (2 Corinthians 9:8 TPT). He will make you or cause you to overflow in abundance in everything that you do. The Message translation says, 8God can pour on the blessings in astonishing ways (2 Corinthians 9:8 MSG). God can pour on the blessings in astonishing ways. But once again, the way you experience it is through faith. Without faith, it’s impossible to please God. Amen. The just shall live by faith, Look to your neighbour and say, “Are you one of the just?” Then tell them, “Then you’re required to live by faith.” It’s really not an option. It’s not if I choose to or I choose not. It is a command. The just shall live by faith. Can you say; Amen?
Now I want you to go with me to Hebrews chapter 10 and this is just one of the places where that statement is found. Hebrews chapter 10 and let’s look at verse 35,
35Cast not away therefore your confidence, or your faith which hath great recompence of reward. 36For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. 37For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. 38Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him (Hebrews 10:35-38 KJV). And that tells me that it is possible for people who have learned to live by faith can drawback. I’ve seen that time and time again, over my 52 years in the ministry. I’ve seen it all over the world, where people who have been taught the basic principles of the life of faith, and eventually let go of them, or they draw back from it. And one of the reasons, or one of the primary reasons I believe, is because they allow themselves to fall into the temptation of listening to things that sound good but are not quite accurate.
I don’t know why people are always looking for a new message. I’ve been living this way for 52 years. I’m not looking for a new message. And then I’d get sleepy and I’d go back to sleep and it seems like the moment I close my eyes, the devil will straddle my head and say, “It’s not going to work, it’s not going to work, it’s not going to work. It will never happen, it will never happen, it will never happen.” I have to get up and engage in warfare again. Anybody ever been there? And then when you finally win, you think, “I’m taking all this armour and I’m throwing it in the corner and I don’t have to use my faith for at least six months. I’m going to be like other Christians – do nothing”. Anybody ever been there? But inactive faith is faith that is not producing anything. Amen.
So Jesus prayed that Peter’s faith would not be reduced to inactivity. In other words, “Peter, I’m praying that you will not yield to complacency.” That’s what it’s saying.” I’m praying that you will not yield to complacency.” Now, let me give you some facts about complacency. Are you ready? This really is a good sermon. You will shout later. All right? Let me just give you just some facts about complacency. I’ve got so many notes on this. Complacency is when you have become satisfied with where you are and what you’ve experienced and refuse to reach higher and further.
The apostle Paul said in Philippians chapter three verses 13 and 14. 13Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before (Philippians 3:13 KJV). Reaching forth unto those things which are before. Let me give you some notes on that. The Amplified Bible says, 13 …reaching forward to what lies ahead (Philippians 3:13 AMPC). See, everything God has for us is not behind us. It’s ahead of us. I’ve already experienced what He had for me yesterday. Now I’m going for what He wants me to experience today and tomorrow and the days ahead. Amen. And that includes abundant overflow. Can you say; Amen? The Passion Translation says, or let me, the Amplified says again, 13…reaching forward to what lies ahead (Philippians 3:13 AMPC). The Passion Translating says, 13 …I fastened my heart to the future (Philippians 3:13 TPT). Then verse 14, the Message Translation says, 14…I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back (Philippians 3:14 MSG). Now, to turn back simply means to stop going forward or to stop advancing. To stop advancing. To go forward you must understand that Satan is going to do everything he can to possibly prevent you from going forward because he knows what God has for you in the days ahead. It’s not behind you, it’s ahead of you. And if you keep pressing forward, then it’s highly probable that you will obtain what God has for you. And it would be to Satan’s advantage to talk you out of going forward and just get you to settle in a comfort zone. Can you say; Amen?
Most of the time, if we’re not going forward, it’s because we’ve listened to a lie from the devil. And that lie goes like this sometimes, ‘“You’ve gone as far as you’ll ever go. You’ve seen all that you’ll ever say. You’ve experienced all that God has for you.” If you listen to those lies, then you will not press as the Apostle Paul said, you will not demand out of yourself to keep going forward. Amen. This is why the Apostle Paul said, we must be 5Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God (2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV). The Message translation says we have to tear down barriers erected against the truth (2 Corinthians 10:5 MSG). The Passion Translation says we must demolish every deception. Amen. It is a lie from the enemy that you’ve already experienced all you’re going to experience. It is a lie from the enemy that you’ve already seen all that God has for you. That is not true. Don’t settle for that lie. Because if you settle for that lie, or if you believe that lie, then you are going to end up settling for less than what God wants you to experience. Can you say; Amen?
The truth is, you haven’t seen all that God wants you to see. You have not experienced all that God wants you to experience. According to the writings of the Apostle Paul, first Corinthians chapter two, verse nine, God has prepared things that our eyes have not seen, our ears have not heard about. Our hearts have not even conceived yet. And He’s prepared them for those that love Him (1 Corinthians 2:9, paraphrased). And I happen to be one that loves God. Is anybody else in here one of those that love God? Then once again, you have not seen nor have you experienced everything that God has in store for you. Amen.
If you’re not living in the overflow, then you’re not experiencing everything God has for you. So the next time we sing that song, you could say, “I’m not living in the overflow. Bless the Lord, oh my soul. I wish I was living in the overflow.” You can live in the overflow. I said; you can live in the overflow. That’s God’s plan. That’s God’s dream. That’s God’s desire for you. Praise God. Amen. Can you say; Amen?
Now, we remember in Hebrews 10 it talks about drawing back. There are several other translations that use the phrase shrink back. I read several translations, uses the phrase rather than drawback, shrinks back. To shrink back implies to show reluctance, particularly as to avoid pressure or confrontation. They shrink back. Implying they’re showing reluctance particularly as to avoid pressure or confrontation. They don’t want any confrontation. I just want to live comfortably. Well, you may not want to hear this. But true Christianity is a fight. True Christianity is a fight. Fight the good fight of faith. Amen. If everything God wants us to have came easy, every Christian would already be enjoying it. But why aren’t most enjoying it? Because they’re not willing to fight the good fight of faith. They want a comfortable Christianity. That is just the opposite of the way Paul lived. Comfortable Christianity. Paul never saw it. This man went under more, experienced more adversity than any person you will ever know and more than you’ll ever know. And yet, his attitude was; none of these things move me. None of these things move me. And that was just like standing up in the devil’s face and saying, “Is this the best you’ve got? Have you just fired your best shot? Well, I’m not moved by it.” Don’t you know that’s a slap in the devil’s face? That would be like me standing up to Mike Tyson in his heyday when he was the baddest man on the planet and saying, “Come on Mike, I’ll fight you for about a billion dollars. Where’d I sign the contract?” I think I’ll run around that ring fast enough he doesn’t hit me, you know. I mean, I’d wear a hole in the ring down there, you know. Or, if Evander Holyfield has already beat him up for me and then they make Mike get in the ring after Evander’s already beat him up – I hope Mike’s not listening to this tape. But anyway, if he’s already been whipped, I’m getting in the ring with him. I’ll even go in for less – a hundred million – if he’s already been beat-up. Amen.
Well, our adversary, the devil’s already been whipped. Praise God. Jesus spoiled him, praise God. Spoiled principalities and powers, took the keys of death, hell and the grave away from him. Reduced him to zero. Hallelujah. Amen. So Paul says, “None of these things moves me. I will finish my course.” I like to say it this way; I will never withdraw from my life of faith regardless of the difficulties that I might face. His faith was never allowed to become inactive.
Now, put on the screen Philippians chapter one verse 19-26 from the Message Translation if you can or if anybody has a Message Bible handy that I can read from. It might take just a few moments. Philippians 1:19 and all the way down through verse 26. Okay. Now, this is Paul in prison, facing death. Remember, he’s writing to a partner church, the church in Philippi. And he says to this adversity that he’s going through, 18So how am I to respond? I’ve decided that I really don’t care about their motives, whether mixed, bad, or indifferent. Every time one of them opens his mouth, Christ is proclaimed, so I just cheer them on! Now, he’s talking about people in prison there that were preaching for the wrong reasons, okay. Now, 19I’m going to keep that celebration going because I know how it’s going to turn out. This man is in prison facing death and he says I’m just going to keep celebrating because I know how it’s going to turn out. Amen. 19Through your faithful prayers and the generous response of the Spirit of Christ, everything he wants to do in and through me will be done. That is a bold statement. He is in prison, facing death. And he says, everything he wants to do in and through me will be done. 20I can hardly wait to continue my course. Sound like to me like he planned on getting out of prison. 20I don’t expect to be embarrassed in the least. On the contrary, everything happening to me in this jail only serves to make Christ more accurately known, regardless of whether I live or die. They didn’t shut me up; they gave me a pulpit! Hallelujah. 21Alive, I’m Christ’s messenger; dead, I’m his bounty. Life versus even more life! I can’t lose. (Philippians 1:18-21 MSG) Hallelujah. I can’t lose. Amen.
Now, if you go on reading that, he says, “I am betwixt two. I don’t know whether to go and be with Christ, which would be far better, because then I would have achieved my ultimate goal – for to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.” But he said, “I’m in a dilemma. I don’t know whether to go on and be with the Lord or to stay here with you.” And then he answered his own dilemma. If you keep reading this, he answered his own dilemma and said, I want to be a 25companion to you as your growth and joy in this life of trusting God continues. 26You can start looking forward to a great reunion when I come visit you again. We’ll be praising Christ, enjoying each other (Philippians 1:25-26 MSG).
Now, another translation says it this way, in the King James, he says, basically, I’m paraphrasing, I’ve decided to stay. Did you notice his decision was not based on the Roman government? It was not based on a guard in that prison, threatening him with his life. He said I’m betwixt to, I don’t know whether to go or to stay but I’ve decided to stay. Then he says, in another translation, and the reason I’ve decided to stay is so that I can teach you, continue to teach you the joy of believing. The joy of believing, the joy of trusting God, the joy of living by faith. How many of you have discovered it’s a joy to live by faith? Amen.
Now, once again, complacency is when you have become satisfied with where you are. And when you and what you have experienced, and refuse to reach for higher and better. That’s not the way Paul approached his life of faith. He said I press. And the word press implies an application of forward motion. Never giving up, never allowing yourself to become satisfied. Now I’m grateful for what God’s already done for me. I’m grateful for what I’ve already experienced. Man oh man, do I have testimonies. My goodness the testimonies, 52 years of living by faith, you’re going to have some testimonies.
I’m grateful for what God has brought me through. I’m grateful for where He’s taken me. But I’m not satisfied because I know there’s much more. Look at your neighbour and say, “There’s so much more.” And the only way that you’re going to get into that so much more is keep pressing through faith. Keep pressing through faith. Now, in verse 15 of Philippians chapter three, the Message translation once again says, 14I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back. Verse 15, says, 15So let’s keep focused … those of us who want everything God has for us (Philippians 3:15 MSG). Let’s keep focused, that is those of us who want everything that God has for us.
Now, let me give you another definition of complacency. It’s a feeling of contentment. Especially, when the thought of confrontation and opposition is present. The feeling of contentment, in other words, I’m happy with where I’m at. I don’t want to go any further. You know, Carolyn and I’ve talked about this. Why build another building? We can have 10 services on Sunday morning, get them all in here. Why do we want to build another building? We’re in a comfort zone. Well, I’m going to tell you that tonight, exactly what the Spirit of God said to me. You see it’d be easy, instead of believing for millions of dollars to build this new facility, and we don’t borrow money, we pay cash for everything we do. And believing to pay cash for everything you do, it ain’t easy. Amen. It’s not easy.
You never know where it’s going to come from. But that’s faith. The just shall live by faith. Amen. So it’d just be easy, say I forget that building program. Let’s just stay where we are. But I believe it would disappoint God if we did. And I’m going to tell you why tonight. Okay. Feeling of contentment. Don’t rock the boat. Amen. How many of you ever heard the name, A.W. Tozer? He was a man, a preacher that lived many, many years ago. Many say he was a theologian. And this is what he said about complacency. It is a deadly foe. It is a deadly foe. Amos 6:1 says, 1Woe to them that are at ease in Zion (Amos 6:1 KJV). Zion is symbolic of the church today. Ease means the condition of having become comfortable.
Now, Proverbs chapter one verse 32, the New International Version says, 1The complacency of fools will destroy them (Proverbs 1:32 NIV). The complacency of fools will destroy them. Another translation says, well, a definition for destroy is to become soundly defeated. If you allow complacency to come into your life, then eventually you will be soundly defeated. The Passion Translation uses this phrase in place of complacency; self-satisfied (Proverbs 1:32 (TPT). Self-satisfied. Now, complacency is like a stream of water. It follows the easiest course. It follows the easiest course. A lot of people are always looking for the path of least resistance. Amen. See, the path of least resistance for us building this new facility would be to borrow the money. I mean, I have people who want to loan me money. One president of the bank that I do business with he’s not the president any longer. He’s moved to another bank. But I walked into a restaurant where he and several other executives of that bank were having lunch and he stood up and said, “Now there’s a man, if he will ask me for a loan, I’ll give him any amount he wants.” I said, “Thank you, sir. But I don’t need it.” Now that would be the path of least resistance. And I’m not saying it’s a sin to borrow. But it would be for me because I made a commitment. I will not borrow money. I will not go into debt. Amen. We’re going to build this debt-free. To borrow the money, there would be the path of least resistance. But I can’t do it. I’d rather stack them in here, till they are ceiling-high than go get in debt.
One of the reasons why I’m not willing to go into debt to build this new facility. I don’t know who’ll be here next week. All of you will because you’re deeply committed. You know. Hey, people come and people go. There are people that have been members of this church for years and all of a sudden they’re gone. I’ve said, and you’ve heard me say it before. I’ve said many times I don’t want another church member telling me, “Brother Jerry, I love you. You don’t know what your ministry has done for me and my family.” Don’t say it, just think it because that might be the last time I ever see you. Amen.
Complacency is like a stream of water; it follows the easiest course. Someone once said complacency – listen to this, this is powerful – complacency invades areas in our lives that once were occupied by passion. That’s a powerful statement. Complacency invades areas in our lives that once were occupied by passion. Complacency brings progress and achievement to a complete standstill. Complacency causes us to look for the path of least resistance. Complacency prevents us from being willing to continue to fight the good fight of faith. Now I don’t know who said this, but I heard it a long time ago. If I could remember who said it, I’d give him credit. It sounds like something John Maxwell would have said. Comfort zones are where dreams go to die. Comfort zones are where dreams go to die. Comfort zones convince you that you’ve already seen enough and that you’ve already done enough. Comfort zones keep you from reaching higher. The greatest danger and I do know who said this, Michael Angelo, the greatest danger for most of us is not in setting our aim too high and falling short but in setting our aim too low and achieving it. Everybody still here?
Now, go with me to the book of John. John chapter, let’s see, John chapter 11. We’ll be through here in just a moment. The Baptists have already beat you to the cafeteria. I’m closing with this. John chapter 11, the story begins in verse one but we won’t take the time to read all of this. But Mary and Martha who are the sisters of Lazarus, who was a friend of Jesus, says in verse three, 3Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. 4When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. 5Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. 6When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was. 7Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again. 8His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again? Look at verse 11, 11These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep. 12Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well (John 11:3-8, 11-12 KJV).
Now it is obvious what they’ve got on their mind – comfort zone. When Jesus said, “Let’s go,” and what did He tell them? “Let’s go unto our friend.” And they said – into Judea – and they said, “Master, don’t you remember the last time we were there? The Jews sought to stone Thee, and goest Thou thither again?” Now what they’re thinking is they sought to stone You, but we’re part of Jesus Christ Evangelistic Association. Amen. And if they’ve stoned You, then more than likely they’ll stone us. So they don’t really have Lazarus on their mind. They’ve got rocks on their brain. They don’t want to go because they might get stoned. So Jesus says, “He sleepeth.” Then they said, “Oh, if he’s asleep then he’s doing okay and we don’t have to go, and there’ll be no rocks thrown at us.” Can you see this? They don’t want to leave their comfort zone. They don’t want to leave their comfort zone. And then finally, it says in verse 13, 13Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. 14Then said Jesus unto them plainly – and I can almost hear Him saying it with a lot of power – Lazarus is dead. 15And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him (John 11:13-15 KJV).
Now, do you believe Jesus Christ Evangelistic Association was a faith ministry? I mean, He’s the Author of faith. He’s the Finisher of faith. Surely everybody on His team was people of faith? Who has a faith ministry and everybody on the team doubts? But there was one. Now let’s see what Thomas said. No wonder he goes down in history with the name doubting Thomas and he worked for a faith ministry. It’d be so sad if I said, “This morning, we’re going to have one of our associates preach and I’d like to invite doubting Justin, to come and take the platform or doubting Rick, to take the platform. Doubting Thomas, now listen to what doubting Thomas said after Jesus said plainly, “Lazarus is dead.” 16Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus. What in the world was that name? There is old Didymus the doubter. Then he said unto his fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die (John 11:16 KJV). “Boys, this is pretty serious now. We’re going to have to leave our comfort zone. Let’s go that we may all die.” There’s no guarantee they’re all going to die but he didn’t want to leave his comfort zone.
Now here is the problem with that comfort zone. They would have missed out on a miracle. If they had stayed where they are, “Now Jesus, we are going to stay here and we are going to intercede for You. Now, You go onto Judea, cause it is not likely that, you know, we have heard the story of how Your own people in Nazareth tried to stone You and You just turned and walked through the midst of them and no man could touch You. Do it again Lord, we will stay here and pray.” But what would they have missed out on if they had remained in the comfort zone? A miracle. And that is what we miss out on if we stay in comfort zones. Miracles, wonders, signs, abundant overflow. Amen. And I am not willing to miss out on that. How about you? Hallelujah. So let me challenge you this morning even though we are in some very unusual times. A lot of people are hurting, a lot of people are suffering, a lot of people would just like for all of this to go away – leave me alone, just let me live in peace. Folks, the Bible tells us that in the latter days, and we are in the latter days, things will get tougher. Amen. There will be perilous times, times of great stress and times of great trouble. Amen. And our only solution in the midst of all that is the just shall live by faith. Amen. Hallelujah. You receive that this morning? Look at your neighbour and tell them, “Don’t get into a comfort zone. You don’t want to miss out on what God has in store for you.”
Let’s all stand, praise God. Amen. Hallelujah. Glory to God. All the folks in South Africa in the church there, they are standing right along with us now. You can’t see them, but I have got a monitor right here in front of me. Hey, let’s wave at them again. Turn to that camera and wave at them again. Praise God. John and Sharon, we love you and all of the folks there at Heritage of Faith, South Africa. And once again, we can hardly wait to get back there and be with you. God is going to do some exciting things between now and the time we get back. So, we are going to have a shouting good time when we get together again. Praise God. Amen. Let’s give the Lord a good shout of praise this morning. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Amen and Amen.
Father, I have endeavoured to deliver to the people today what You put on my heart, and now Holy Spirit, take it and do what is necessary to cause it to dwell richly on the inside of them. And I pray that not one person within the sound of my voice will fall into the trap of complacency and inactive faith, a comfort zone where they are unwilling to reach for the higher and press for that which You have in store for us. And we thank You for it in Jesus’ name. Amen and Amen and Amen. Alright, Pastor.
Hallelujah. Praise the Lord. Glory to God. Well, I have not been in the ministry for 52 years, but I have been serving God for that time. And I’ll tell you that it is just this way that what Brother Jerry said; if you allow complacency to creep into your walk with God and your faith, you will not see the end of what you are believing God for. You’ve got to stay strong. I want to say thank you to everybody that stayed. It is my knowledge and my understanding by the Word of God, it is my profound understanding in revelation that when a general of faith, an apostle speaks the way Brother Jerry spoke tonight, it may look and sound like we were just watching on the TV screen, but this word will have an impact on you. It will change you, and it will cause you to go from strength to strength and give you the toolset that allows you to be everything that God wants you to be because you live by faith. Because you are the just that live by faith. Amen. So I just pray and declare over you that the peace of God is upon you, no weapon formed against you prospers. I pray that you are blessed coming in and going out and I pray that no harm will come near you or your dwelling place in the Name of Jesus. And I declare that you are everything that God called you to be and has destined you to be, and you are becoming that in Jesus’ name. Do you agree with me? Amen. Thank you for staying and being in church tonight. God bless you. Drive safe everybody. Drive safe.
