Full text of Bishop TD Jakes’ sermon titled “Think Like Eagles”.
Best quotes from this sermon:
“To be unforgiving, is like you drinking poison and waiting on somebody else to die.”
“When you keep eating what you should release it weights you down.”
“Unforgiveness is keeping you in a chicken coop when God is calling you to the Mount.”
Listen to the MP3 Audio here:
Pastor Jenkins: Ladies and gentlemen, let’s give it up for Bishop Thomas Dexter Jakes.
T.D. Jakes: Let’s give Jesus the best praise you can muster right now. Hallelujah. You may be seated.
You all should have told me I could have worn my jeans, that ain’t fair. I got me some jeans, I don’t have no skinny jean because my cup runneth over. How many of you’re glad to be in the house of the Lord today?
T.D. Jakes: I am going to take a few minutes and talk to you. I’m not even going to open up the text, I’m just going to talk to you about the crux of what I have been traveling all over the country for the last two weeks. I’m going to hit 20 to 30 cities before I get home.
There is a word that God has put in my heart that I believe is life changing. We’ve spent a lot of times cleansing ourselves from the filthiness of the flesh, lust, and anger, and habits, and addictions, and things like that.
But what is deeper, is the cleansing of the heart, to get your heart clean. You can clean up everything else but everything that’s going on in your life is coming out of your heart. Your God is a God of seed. He is a God of seed. Everything He does, He does it by seed, it starts out in seed form. He sends this word which is a seed, and the seed germinate and it bring forth fruit and bring forth life, it all starts in seed form.
