February 21, 2016
We live in a health-crazed world. Everywhere we turn we see people who are into juice – from juice boxes to juice-only diets, from freshly-squeezed juice to frozen juice pops. But what is the real power behind juice? It all comes down to the right fruit.
In this message series, Pastor Ed Young peels back the layers of God’s truth and shows us which fruit brings the sweetest tastes to our lives. And when we get a full understanding of this teaching, we experience a life with some serious juice!
Our culture loves juice, don’t we? Everything seems to be about juice. We see someone who’s really muscular, a man or a woman, and we go, “oh, they’re on the juice.” Back in the day I remember the infomercial, The Juiceman. I was mesmerized by the fresh juice this guy made, and yes, I bought a Juiceman juicer. Lisa and I tried to do all the juicing. It was very messy. I love juice but that just didn’t really work out. Now, though, because of technology, we have this blender. This blender is absolutely amazing. It’s so powerful. In fact, I would say it’s more powerful than a lot of outboard motors that I have seen in my life. <engine sound effect> The thing is awesome. We have juice all the time. I love me some juice! Some people will say this. They’ll go, oh, I’m juiced for that. I’m juiced! Yeah! Or, he’s got the juice. They just have that energy.
ILLUS: Now and then people ask me, Ed, how do you come up with what to talk about? I get that question all the time. Where do you get your sermon ideas?
Well, a couple of days ago Lisa and I were out of town. We spoke at a leadership conference at C3. We went to Atlanta and did a marriage conference, and then I spoke there as well. So after that we went to Florida. We were in Miami just for a couple of days, as you know we have a campus down there. If you didn’t know, we do. Fellowship Church Miami. What’s up Fellowship Miami? Lisa’s there right now so everybody wave to Lisa. Yeah, she’s there. How you doing, honey? Anyway, so I was talking to Lisa about just a series, you know, of topics I could talk about at church and I thought juice. And she goes, that’s interesting. I don’t always talk to her about what I’m going to speak about but I was, you know, we’re talking. Juice. And then I said,
“You know what I thought about doing, Lisa? I thought about talking about a fruit. You know what’s always intrigued me is the pomegranate.” She goes,

ILLUS: You might be going, man, Ed, I really like that shirt you have on. I’m glad. I do, too. This shirt is pretty cool. It’s longer, so when I raise my hands I will not show off my 8-pack. I got this shirt, and of course it cost some money. I got it online. I ordered it, then UPS delivered it to me. But I will tell you we had to track it. They give you this tracking number and so it’s really cool, isn’t it? Technology, you can track where this is. But UPS, they delivered it to me. How many people in here have ordered something online this week? You’ve ordered something online. Yeah! UPS anybody? UPS? Did UPS deliver it? Yeah, a few. God bless you, UPS.
I tell you, things cost. Money, you’ve heard it said before, makes the world go around. I have some news for you. Did you realize that God wants to know how we manage our money? I mean, obviously God knows but I’m saying he wants us to know that money matters to him. Not only does it make this world go around, but also, I would argue, money makes God’s economy go around. Have you ever thought about that. That’s right, God talks about money. The word money is used over 800 times in Scripture. Whenever you see the word faith so often money is attached to it, so today I thought I’d talk about money.
Now if you came to Fellowship Church for the first time, you’ve picked a great time to show up because I’m going to tell you how Fellowship does what it does. Obviously this stuff did not happen out of a vacuum. This incredible campus right here on nine luscious acres in Miami. It happened obviously because of God, but it took money. Our campus in Grapevine, over 150 acres, hundreds and hundreds of thousands of square feet… money. Our camp on 1,100 acres in East Texas… money. Am I going to rapidly for anybody? Our online campus, our ministry to pastors around the world, our leadership, all of that takes money. We print curriculum. Our children’s curriculum is seen in over 5,000 churches a week. It takes money to do that. So I just thought I’d talk about money.

Good morning! I want to say hello to all our campuses. Dallas, Miami, Fort Worth, Keller Southlake, East Texas, and all the other places. Welcome to Fellowship! I have in my hands an espresso. I love espresso. It’s the drink of champions. I’ve had this cup for probably 10 years. I can make a pretty mean espresso. Mmmm! It’s not pronounced expresso, it’s espresso. It’s coffee that’s really concentrated. Some people say, “Well, if I had espresso, Ed, I’d be up for two days.” No you wouldn’t. It’s the equivalent of one cup of coffee. Life is too short to drink weak coffee. Decaf is of the devil. If you invite me over to your house, please pour me some strong coffee. I love it. Espresso.
To make it you’ve got to really study it. I’ve gone on YouTube, I’ve read books about it, I’ve talked to baristas. You have to have the right coffee beans and you’ve got to have a good grinder. Then you take the coffee grinds and put them in a little carriage, you tamp, you press down, you tamp it. Sometimes you’ve got to put like 30 pounds of pressure. Then you put a little bit more coffee, tamp it, then blow the grinds off and they go everywhere. Then you lock it into place, push the on button and that scalding water drips and just slowly drips and man, it’s good! I love espresso!
The bad thing about espresso is it’s quick. I mean, one sip and it’s done. It’s like… it’s gone. But it’s fun, it’s just gone that quick. That quick! That’s why sometimes I’ll say I’ll have a quadruple venti you know at Starbucks, Five Bucks, Starbucks, where you get a lot of coffee. I do like strong coffee. I really, really do.
ILLUS: You know last weekend I was in our Miami campus. I was there in Miami and I talked to a young man that is a wide receiver for the University of Miami, who goes to Fellowship Church. Great kid. He’s a pastor’s son. I asked him a dumb question. He’s 5’11” and I go, “You must be pretty fast.”
