TD Jakes — When Men Fall Short
I want every man in here to touch somebody around you and tell 'em, "We are both here, Jacob and Israel." And sometimes, Jacob and Israel get into a fight, living in the same body.
Sometimes, Jacob wants to quit and Israel wants to stay. Sometime, Israel wants to live holy and Jacob wants to go to a strip club. Sometimes, Israel wants to read the Bible and Jacob wants to watch porn. And we are both living in the sa--y'all can't take a real message. You can't handle the truth.
Because he lives, I can face tomorrow. Because he lives, all fear is gone. Because I know who holds the future, my life is worth the living. Just because he lives.
This is Easter week, holy week. The time that we commemorate the death, the burial, and the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
So happy Easter week to all of you out there. I'm excited to have an opportunity to share the Word of the Lord with you on this holy week when Christians all over the world are celebrating our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
The message today, "When Men Fall," and we do. We fall short. That's why he died, to make up the difference, to fill in the gap, to stand in the hedge and make up the gap between our extremity and his opportunity.
As we go into the Word of God, whatever is paining you, frustrating you, causing you to wonder, "Can I survive this moment?" Jesus didn't die for you to fail. He died for you to be resurrected with him. You can deal with this. Take a look at this.
