How To Get What You Really Want – Week 2


Speaker: Grant Agler


What do you want?
 
I do not understand what I do.
For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.
Romans 7:15
 
For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out
Romans 7:18
 
For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing.
Romans 7:19
 
What we naturally want is often in conflict with what we ultimately want
 
Sinful Nature
 
When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures,
Galatians 5:19
 
idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like
Galatians 5:20
 
…but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed.
James 1:14
 
Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
James 1:15
 
Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters.
James 1:16
 
1.What do you really want?
2. What’s dragging me away?
3. How long do I plan to let what I naturally want drag me away from what I ultimately want?

Grant is our resident farmboy. He grew up in the cornfields of northwest Nebraska. He spent his early days living far from God. As Grant says, "I gave God the middle finger and didn't really care about faith at all." As a young man, he became convinced that God was real. He gave his life to Jesus and experienced God's amazing grace that previously made no sense to him. After experiencing that grace, Grant felt God calling him to teach the message of the gospel. Over the past 20 years, he has been preaching and teaching. Grant, his wife, Bethany, and their four children moved to Michigan in 2011, and he joined the 2|42 team in 2019. Grant is always good for a laugh, but more importantly, he explains biblical concepts in ways anyone can understand.
