  • THINKS THEIR CALLING IS JUST TO
  • 00:05:04.240 --> 00:05:06.130

  • 00:05:06.130 --> 00:05:07.120

  • I THINK WE'RE MISSING SOMETHING.
  • 00:05:13.230 --> 00:05:16.120
  • COULD YOU TELL US, HOW DID YOU
  • 00:05:16.120 --> 00:05:18.230
  • DISCOVER YOUR CALLING?
  • 00:05:18.230 --> 00:05:20.140
  • - WITH ME, IT'S VERY
  • 00:05:20.140 --> 00:05:21.010
  • INTERESTING.
  • 00:05:21.010 --> 00:05:22.040
  • AS A YOUNG BOY, I REMEMBER GOING
  • 00:05:22.040 --> 00:05:24.010
  • TO THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AND I WAS
  • 00:05:24.010 --> 00:05:26.070
  • SCARED BECAUSE I FELT SOMETHING
  • 00:05:26.070 --> 00:05:27.000
  • TUGGING ME.
  • 00:05:27.000 --> 00:05:29.090
  • THAT WAS BEFORE I REALLY WAS
  • 00:05:29.090 --> 00:05:30.190
  • INSENSITIVE TO THE LORD ANYMORE.
  • 00:05:30.190 --> 00:05:32.250
  • AND I REMEMBER AS A FULL-ON
  • 00:05:33.250 --> 00:05:36.250
  • SINNER, I DID WHAT SINNERS ARE
  • 00:05:36.250 --> 00:05:37.190
  • SUPPOSED TO DO.
  • 00:05:37.190 --> 00:05:39.020
  • I SINNED REALLY GOOD.
  • 00:05:39.020 --> 00:05:40.080
  • I REMEMBER ONCE I GOT SAVED IN
  • 00:05:42.130 --> 00:05:45.130
  • MY COLLEGE FRATERNITY AT PURDUE,
  • 00:05:45.130 --> 00:05:46.060
  • UNIVERSITY, THAT LITTLE PULL
  • 00:05:46.060 --> 00:05:47.170
  • TOWARDS THE MINISTRY CAME BACK.
  • 00:05:47.170 --> 00:05:48.290
  • BUT HONESTLY, MINISTRY WAS THE
  • 00:05:49.220 --> 00:05:52.220
  • LAST THING I EVER WANTED TO DO.
  • 00:05:52.220 --> 00:05:55.090
  • EVERY MINISTER I'D EVER MET WAS
  • 00:05:55.090 --> 00:05:56.160
  • WEIRD.
  • 00:05:56.160 --> 00:05:56.250
  • I HAVE TO SAY THIS.
  • 00:05:56.250 --> 00:05:59.130
  • I GREW UP IN A TOWN OF 3.000.
  • 00:05:59.130 --> 00:06:01.060
  • SO I'M A CATHOLIC BOY.
  • 00:06:01.060 --> 00:06:03.080
  • SO MY CONCEPT OF THE MINISTRY IS
  • 00:06:03.080 --> 00:06:05.020
  • EITHER YOU NEVER GET MARRIED,
  • 00:06:05.120 --> 00:06:08.120
  • WHICH THAT SCARED ME LIKE CRAZY,
  • 00:06:08.120 --> 00:06:09.100
  • OR IF YOU END UP AS A PASTOR,
  • 00:06:09.100 --> 00:06:11.180
  • THERE WAS ONLY ONE PASTOR IN
  • 00:06:11.180 --> 00:06:12.190
  • THAT LITTLE TOWN THAT I KNEW AND
  • 00:06:12.190 --> 00:06:14.090
  • HE HAD A VERY SMELLY HOUSE AND
  • 00:06:14.090 --> 00:06:16.280
  • REALLY WEIRD KIDS.
  • 00:06:16.280 --> 00:06:17.130
  • AND I WAS LIKE, OKAY.
  • 00:06:17.130 --> 00:06:19.220
  • SO I RESISTED IT AND RESISTED IT
  • 00:06:19.220 --> 00:06:21.270
  • AND RESISTED IT.
  • 00:06:21.270 --> 00:06:23.270
  • AND FINALLY A COUPLE OF EVENTS
  • 00:06:23.270 --> 00:06:26.020
  • OCCURRED WITH ME THAT GOT MY
  • 00:06:26.020 --> 00:06:26.230
  • ATTENTION.
  • 00:06:26.230 --> 00:06:29.120
  • ONE WAS, I WAS STUDYING
  • 00:06:29.120 --> 00:06:31.080
  • ENGINEERING.
  • 00:06:31.080 --> 00:06:31.200
  • AND AS A CO-OP ENGINEER, WE
  • 00:06:31.200 --> 00:06:33.270
  • WOULD WORK AT IBM FOR A SEMESTER
  • 00:06:33.270 --> 00:06:36.130
  • AND GO TO PURDUE FOR A SEMESTER.
  • 00:06:36.130 --> 00:06:38.210
  • WE WERE CELEBRATING AN

  • ENGINEER'S 38th YEAR WITH IBM.
  • 00:06:40.130 --> 00:06:41.290
  • AND THERE WERE 14 ENGINEERS
  • 00:06:41.290 --> 00:06:43.270
  • SITTING AROUND THE ROOM ALL
  • 00:06:43.270 --> 00:06:44.210
  • DRINKING THEIR COFFEE.
  • 00:06:44.210 --> 00:06:46.270
  • I CAN'T DRINK COFFEE, TOO MUCH
  • 00:06:46.270 --> 00:06:47.200
  • ENERGY FOR THAT.
  • 00:06:47.200 --> 00:06:49.030
  • I'M SITTING THERE TALKING WITH
  • 00:06:49.030 --> 00:06:50.080
  • THEM.
  • 00:06:50.080 --> 00:06:50.210
  • AND THIS GUY SAYS, I'VE HATED
  • 00:06:51.150 --> 00:06:54.150
  • EVERY DAY I'VE WALKED IN HERE
  • 00:06:54.150 --> 00:06:55.250
  • FOR 38 YEARS.
  • 00:06:55.250 --> 00:06:56.230
  • AND EVERYBODY LAUGHED IN THE
  • 00:06:56.230 --> 00:06:58.170
  • OFFICE EXCEPT ME.
  • 00:06:58.170 --> 00:07:00.200
  • I WAS HORRIFIED.
  • 00:07:00.200 --> 00:07:01.110
  • AND I LOOKED AT ME AND I SAID,
  • 00:07:01.110 --> 00:07:04.020
  • WHY DID YOU DO IT?
  • 00:07:04.020 --> 00:07:05.110
  • AND HE SAID -- HE GOT A LITTLE
  • 00:07:05.110 --> 00:07:08.020
  • UPSET WITH ME.
  • 00:07:08.020 --> 00:07:08.210
  • AND HE SAID, JOHN, IT'S A JOB,
  • 00:07:08.210 --> 00:07:10.240
  • YOU KNOW, YOU EARN MONEY SO YOU
  • 00:07:10.240 --> 00:07:13.130
  • CAN EAT AND BY CLOTHES.
  • 00:07:13.130 --> 00:07:15.290
  • AND I WAS LIKE, SHUT UP, BEVERE.
  • 00:07:15.290 --> 00:07:18.030
  • I DIDN'T SAY ANOTHER WORD BUT I
  • 00:07:18.030 --> 00:07:20.060
  • MADE A NOTE IN MY MIND AND IN MY
  • 00:07:20.060 --> 00:07:22.080
  • HEART, 38 YEARS FROM NOW, I WILL
  • 00:07:22.080 --> 00:07:24.020
  • NOT BE SAYING WHAT HE'S SAYING.
  • 00:07:24.020 --> 00:07:26.030
  • AND I REMEMBER MY SENIOR YEAR --
  • 00:07:26.030 --> 00:07:27.260
  • THAT WAS MY JUNIOR YEAR THAT
  • 00:07:27.260 --> 00:07:28.170
  • HAPPENED.
  • 00:07:28.170 --> 00:07:30.000
  • MY SENIOR YEAR, I CALLED MY
  • 00:07:30.000 --> 00:07:32.190
  • MOM -- YOU TRYING DOING THIS
  • 00:07:33.140 --> 00:07:36.140
  • WITH YOUR ROMAN CATHOLIC ITALIAN
  • 00:07:36.140 --> 00:07:37.120
  • MOTHER.
  • 00:07:37.120 --> 00:07:38.210
  • I SAID, MOM, I'M NOT COMING HOME
  • 00:07:38.210 --> 00:07:41.040
  • FOR THE HOLIDAY.
  • 00:07:41.040 --> 00:07:42.060
  • AND I FASTED OVER THANKSGIVING.
  • 00:07:42.060 --> 00:07:45.000
  • I SAID, GOD, I HAVE TO KNOW WHY
  • 00:07:45.000 --> 00:07:46.220
  • YOU PUT ME ON THIS EARTH.
  • 00:07:46.220 --> 00:07:48.090
  • AS A RESULT OF THAT FAST, GOD
  • 00:07:48.090 --> 00:07:50.010
  • GAVE ME GLIMPSES OF THINGS I
  • 00:07:50.010 --> 00:07:52.170
  • DIDN'T DO UNTIL I WAS IN MY 50s.
  • 00:07:52.170 --> 00:07:54.260
  • I HAVE IT WRITTEN DOWN,
  • 00:07:55.110 --> 00:07:58.110
  • DOCUMENTED, DATED.
  • 00:07:58.120 --> 00:08:01.140
  • 1981, BUT I DIDN'T SEE SOME OF
  • 00:08:01.140 --> 00:08:04.050
  • THE FULFILLMENT UNTIL I WAS IN
  • 00:08:04.050 --> 00:08:04.270
  • MY 50s.
  • 00:08:04.270 --> 00:08:05.160
  • THAT'S WHAT GOD DOES.
  • 00:08:05.160 --> 00:08:07.270
  • HE SHOWS JOSEPH, YOU'RE GOING TO
  • 00:08:07.270 --> 00:08:09.100
  • BE A GREAT LEADER BUT HE DOESN'T
  • 00:08:09.100 --> 00:08:10.230
  • SHOW HIM THE PIT, THE SLAVERY OF
  • 00:08:10.230 --> 00:08:12.090
  • TEN YEARS AND THE DUNGEON OF TWO
  • 00:08:12.090 --> 00:08:14.160
  • YEARS.
  • 00:08:14.160 --> 00:08:15.090
  • HE SHOWS DAVID, YOU'RE GOING TO
  • 00:08:15.090 --> 00:08:16.150
  • BE A LEADER.
  • 00:08:16.150 --> 00:08:17.020
  • BUT HE DOESN'T SHOW HIM LIVING
  • 00:08:17.020 --> 00:08:19.190
  • IN THE WILDERNESS FOR THE NEXT
  • 00:08:19.190 --> 00:08:21.150
  • 14 YEARS OF YOUR LIFE AND MAKING
  • 00:08:21.150 --> 00:08:23.140
  • PILLOWS OUT OF ROCKS.
  • 00:08:23.140 --> 00:08:25.100
  • GOD SHOWED ME THAT BUT I HAD NO
  • 00:08:25.100 --> 00:08:27.130
  • IDEA THE ROAD THAT I WAS GOING
  • 00:08:27.130 --> 00:08:28.060
  • TO TRAVEL.
  • 00:08:28.060 --> 00:08:29.120
  • THE FIRST THING THAT I THINK IS
  • 00:08:29.120 --> 00:08:30.210
  • SO IMPORTANT TO SAY TO EVERYBODY
  • 00:08:30.210 --> 00:08:32.050
  • THAT'S WATCHING US IS THAT GOD
  • 00:08:32.260 --> 00:08:35.260
  • HAS CALLED EVERY ONE OF US.
  • 00:08:35.260 --> 00:08:38.110
  • THE OLD MINDSET IS, WELL, JUST
  • 00:08:38.150 --> 00:08:41.150
  • PASTORS OR MISSIONARIES OR
  • 00:08:41.150 --> 00:08:43.140
  • WORSHIP LEADERS HAVE A CALL OF
  • 00:08:43.140 --> 00:08:44.070
  • GOD ON THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:08:44.070 --> 00:08:46.020
  • NO, EVERY SINGLE HUMAN BEING, IF
  • 00:08:46.080 --> 00:08:49.080
  • YOU ARE BORN AGAIN, GOD HAS
  • 00:08:49.080 --> 00:08:51.040
  • PLACE ADD CALL ON YOUR LIFE AND
  • 00:08:51.040 --> 00:08:52.280
  • THAT CALL IS TO BUILD UP THE

  • CHURCH IN VARIOUS, DIFFERENT
  • 00:08:54.070 --> 00:08:54.280
  • WAYS.
  • 00:08:54.280 --> 00:08:55.070
  • [ APPLAUSE ]
  • 00:08:56.050 --> 00:08:59.050
  • - SO YOU'RE TELLING ME THAT I
  • 00:08:59.200 --> 00:09:02.220
  • DON'T HAVE TO BE A PASTOR, I
  • 00:09:02.220 --> 00:09:04.090
  • DON'T HAVE TO BE A MINISTER, I
  • 00:09:04.090 --> 00:09:05.240
  • DON'T HAVE TO NECESSARILY GET A
  • 00:09:05.240 --> 00:09:08.040
  • PAYCHECK FROM SOME KIND OF
  • 00:09:08.040 --> 00:09:10.020
  • CHURCH OR RELIGIOUS INSTITUTION.
  • 00:09:10.020 --> 00:09:11.200
  • I CAN BE JUST AS CALLED BY GOD
  • 00:09:11.200 --> 00:09:13.080
  • WORKING AT A LOCAL COLLEGE.
  • 00:09:15.040 --> 00:09:18.040
  • I CAN BE JUST AS CALLED BY GOD
  • 00:09:18.040 --> 00:09:20.210
  • IN THE MILITARY OR AT A LOCAL
  • 00:09:20.210 --> 00:09:22.080
  • CAR DEALERSHIP.
  • 00:09:22.080 --> 00:09:22.240
  • - A FRIEND OF MINE, WHERE MY
  • 00:09:22.240 --> 00:09:24.090
  • SON IS INTERNING RIGHT NOW, HE
  • 00:09:24.210 --> 00:09:27.210
  • GOT SAVED IN THE EARLY '90s AND
  • 00:09:27.220 --> 00:09:30.220
  • ALL THAT WAS PREACHED IN HIS
  • 00:09:30.220 --> 00:09:32.260
  • CHURCH IS THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN
  • 00:09:32.260 --> 00:09:34.080
  • SERVE GOD IS BE IN MINISTRY.
  • 00:09:34.080 --> 00:09:35.160
  • SO HE BECAME A YOUTH PASTOR.
  • 00:09:35.160 --> 00:09:37.140
  • WAS A YOUTH PASTOR FOR FIVE
  • 00:09:37.140 --> 00:09:39.030
  • YEARS.
  • 00:09:39.030 --> 00:09:39.120
  • AND HE SAID, JOHN, I COULDN'T
  • 00:09:39.120 --> 00:09:41.040
  • MAKE ENDS MEET.
  • 00:09:41.040 --> 00:09:42.180
  • I WAS HAVING TO CLEAN HOUSES
  • 00:09:42.180 --> 00:09:43.260
  • JUST TO SURVIVE.
  • 00:09:43.260 --> 00:09:44.220
  • HE SAID FINALLY AFTER FIVE YEARS
  • 00:09:44.220 --> 00:09:46.040
  • IN PRAYER AND LISTENING TO A MAN
  • 00:09:46.040 --> 00:09:48.140
  • OF GOD, HE REALIZED, WAIT A
  • 00:09:48.140 --> 00:09:50.090
  • MINUTE, I'M NOT CALLED TO
  • 00:09:50.090 --> 00:09:52.040
  • MINISTRY.
  • 00:09:52.040 --> 00:09:52.150
  • I'M CALLED TO THE BUSINESS
  • 00:09:52.150 --> 00:09:53.050
  • WORLD.
  • 00:09:53.050 --> 00:09:54.060
  • NOW TODAY HE HAS, I THINK, FIVE
  • 00:09:55.250 --> 00:09:58.250
  • DIFFERENT STATES -- BUSINESSES
  • 00:09:58.250 --> 00:10:00.070
  • IN FIVE DIFFERENT STATES AND
  • 00:10:00.070 --> 00:10:02.030
  • HE'S GIVEN OVER A MILLION
  • 00:10:02.030 --> 00:10:02.240
  • DOLLARS INTO THE KINGDOM.
  • 00:10:02.240 --> 00:10:04.260
  • ANOTHER FRIEND OF MINE -- I LOVE
  • 00:10:04.260 --> 00:10:06.090
  • THIS MAN SO DEEPLY -- HE WAS
  • 00:10:09.110 --> 00:10:12.110
  • RAISED IN THE CHURCH.
  • 00:10:12.110 --> 00:10:13.020
  • HE THOUGHT, THE ONLY WAY I CAN
  • 00:10:13.020 --> 00:10:15.000
  • REALLY SERVE GOD -- HE SAID,
  • 00:10:15.000 --> 00:10:16.050
  • JOHN, I HAD A PASSION TO SERVE
  • 00:10:16.050 --> 00:10:18.110
  • GOD -- IS TO GO TO BIBLE SCHOOL.
  • 00:10:18.110 --> 00:10:19.280
  • SO HE DID.
  • 00:10:19.280 --> 00:10:21.120
  • HE WENT FOR TWO YEARS.
  • 00:10:21.120 --> 00:10:23.020
  • AND THEN HE INTERNED IN A CHURCH
  • 00:10:23.020 --> 00:10:24.100
  • ON THE THIRD YEAR.
  • 00:10:24.100 --> 00:10:26.110
  • HE WAS ACCUSED OF SLEEPING WITH
  • 00:10:26.110 --> 00:10:28.060
  • A GIRL IN THE YOUTH GROUP
  • 00:10:28.060 --> 00:10:30.030
  • BECAUSE HE WAS INTERNING IN THE
  • 00:10:30.030 --> 00:10:32.010
  • YOUTH GROUP OF A VERY LARGE
  • 00:10:32.010 --> 00:10:33.170
  • CHURCH.
  • 00:10:33.170 --> 00:10:33.270
  • AND HE SAID, JOHN, I NEVER SLEPT
  • 00:10:33.270 --> 00:10:35.290
  • WITH HER BUT THE ELDERS BELIEVED
  • 00:10:35.290 --> 00:10:36.210
  • HER.
  • 00:10:36.210 --> 00:10:38.220
  • SO THEY THREW ME OUT.
  • 00:10:38.220 --> 00:10:41.170
  • THREE YEARS OF WORK COMPLETELY
  • 00:10:41.170 --> 00:10:43.000
  • GONE.
  • 00:10:43.000 --> 00:10:44.000
  • THAT'S A LOT WHEN YOU'RE 21
  • 00:10:44.000 --> 00:10:44.250
  • YEARS OLD.
  • 00:10:44.250 --> 00:10:45.070
  • SO HE SAID, JOHN, TO BE HONEST
  • 00:10:45.070 --> 00:10:46.160
  • WITH YOU, I SOUGHT GOD LIKE I'VE
  • 00:10:47.240 --> 00:10:50.240
  • NEVER SOUGHT GOD BEFORE.
  • 00:10:50.240 --> 00:10:51.170
  • AND HE SAID, GOD SPEAKS TO ME
  • 00:10:51.170 --> 00:10:54.050
  • AND SAID, I DIDN'T CALL YOU TO
  • 00:10:54.050 --> 00:10:55.000
  • MINISTRY.
  • 00:10:55.000 --> 00:10:56.100
  • I CALLED YOU TO THE MILITARY.
  • 00:10:56.100 --> 00:10:58.040
  • SO HE WENT TO THE AIR FORCE, THE
  • 00:10:58.040 --> 00:10:59.230
  • MARINES, HE WENT TO THE ARMY,
  • 00:10:59.230 --> 00:11:02.050
  • NOTHING.
  • 00:11:02.050 --> 00:11:02.160
  • HE SAID, LAST ONE IS THE NAVY.
  • 00:11:02.160 --> 00:11:04.280
  • HE'S SITTING IN THE RECRUITING
  • 00:11:04.280 --> 00:11:06.140
  • OFFICE, HE HAS ABSOLUTELY NO
  • 00:11:06.140 --> 00:11:08.180
  • IDEA WHAT A S.E.A.L. IS.
  • 00:11:08.180 --> 00:11:09.280
  • BUT THE GUY IS READING DOWN THE
  • 00:11:09.280 --> 00:11:11.240
  • LIST AND HE SEES THE WORD
  • 00:11:11.240 --> 00:11:13.040
  • S.E.A.L.
  • 00:11:13.040 --> 00:11:13.190
  • AND WHEN HE DOES, HE GOES,
  • 00:11:13.190 --> 00:11:14.280
  • THAT'S IT.
  • 00:11:15.170 --> 00:11:18.170
  • THE RECRUITER SAID, NO, 90% OF
  • 00:11:18.170 --> 00:11:20.240
  • THE GUYS FLUNK OUT IN THIS.
  • 00:11:20.240 --> 00:11:22.160
  • HE SAID, THAT'S WHAT I'M
  • 00:11:22.160 --> 00:11:24.080
  • SUPPOSED TO DO.
  • 00:11:24.080 --> 00:11:26.010
  • BUT HE DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO SWIM
  • 00:11:26.010 --> 00:11:27.230
  • AS A S.E.A.L. AND THERE'S A
  • 00:11:27.230 --> 00:11:29.050
  • REASON BECAUSE HE HAD TUBES PUT
  • 00:11:29.050 --> 00:11:31.060
  • IN HIS EARS BECAUSE HIS EAR
  • 00:11:31.060 --> 00:11:32.240
  • CANALS WERE SO NARROW.
  • 00:11:32.240 --> 00:11:34.210
  • HE SAID, IF I GOT A COUPLE OF
  • 00:11:34.210 --> 00:11:37.000
  • DROPS OF WATER IN MY EAR, I WAS
  • 00:11:37.000 --> 00:11:38.260
  • IN EXCRUCIATING PAIN.
  • 00:11:38.260 --> 00:11:40.090
  • SO HE HAD TO TEACH HIMSELF TO
  • 00:11:41.170 --> 00:11:44.170
  • SWIM.
  • 00:11:44.170 --> 00:11:44.260
  • HE SAID ONE DAY I GO DOWN UP TO
  • 00:11:44.260 --> 00:11:47.210
  • TEN FEET, TOTALLY NOTHING.
  • 00:11:47.210 --> 00:11:49.020
  • NOW HE'S IN S.E.A.L. TRAINING.
  • 00:11:49.110 --> 00:11:52.110
  • HE STEPS IN A HOLE ON THE BEACH
  • 00:11:52.110 --> 00:11:53.290
  • ON THE LAST WEEK OF S.E.A.L.s
  • 00:11:56.190 --> 00:11:59.190
  • TRAINING AND TEARS EVERYTHING.
  • 00:11:59.190 --> 00:12:01.260
  • THEY SAID, IF YOU FLUNK THE
  • 00:12:01.260 --> 00:12:03.270
  • PHYSICAL, YOU CAN NEVER BECOME A
  • 00:12:03.270 --> 00:12:06.080
  • S.E.A.L.
  • 00:12:06.080 --> 00:12:06.180
  • I GO INTO THAT PHYSICAL.
  • 00:12:06.180 --> 00:12:07.070
  • HE SAID, THE DOCTOR FLUNKS ME.

  • WE'RE HIS TEMPLE.
  • 00:26:09.100 --> 00:26:11.010
  • NOT FOR IT, TO IT.
  • 00:26:11.010 --> 00:26:13.110
  • HE WILL COME TO US BEFORE HE

  • SOME WILL FEAR ME.
  • 00:26:28.290 --> 00:26:30.150
  • HE SAYS, WHEN THAT HAPPENS, THE
  • 00:26:31.120 --> 00:26:34.120
  • SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS IS GOING TO
  • 00:26:34.120 --> 00:26:37.090
  • RISE WITH HEALING IN HIS WINGS.
  • 00:26:37.220 --> 00:26:40.220
  • HE PREPARES US FOR THAT DAY IN
  • 00:26:41.050 --> 00:26:44.050
  • WHICH WE'LL SHINE FORTH WITH HIS
  • 00:26:44.120 --> 00:26:47.120
  • GLORY SO THE PEOPLE DON'T SEE
  • 00:26:47.120 --> 00:26:48.040
  • THE VESSEL BUT THE TREASURE IN
  • 00:26:48.040 --> 00:26:49.070
  • THE VESSEL.
  • 00:26:49.070 --> 00:26:49.190
  • - SO GOOD.
  • 00:26:49.190 --> 00:26:50.010

  • SEE HIM DOING THAT.
  • 00:26:59.050 --> 00:27:00.060
  • HE PUT YOU THROUGH THE REFINER'S
  • 00:27:00.060 --> 00:27:02.130
  • FIRE, SO TO SPEAK, WHERE YOU
  • 00:27:02.130 --> 00:27:03.190
  • WERE HAVING TO DEAL WITH YOUR

  • ANGER AND OTHER ISSUES THAT CAME
  • 00:27:08.030 --> 00:27:08.250

  • YOU'RE SENT TO DO?
  • 00:27:13.260 --> 00:27:15.230
  • DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?
  • 00:27:15.230 --> 00:27:16.110
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT?
  • 00:27:16.110 --> 00:27:16.280
  • - LET'S TALK MINISTRY.
  • 00:27:16.280 --> 00:27:18.230
  • HOW DID I KNOW?
  • 00:27:18.230 --> 00:27:19.160
  • I TRIED TO SEND MYSELF FOR

  • YEARS.
  • 00:27:21.160 --> 00:27:21.250
  • AND GOD SAID, YOU SEND YOURSELF,
  • 00:27:23.070 --> 00:27:26.070
  • YOU GO IN YOUR OWN AUTHORITY.
  • 00:27:26.070 --> 00:27:27.060

  • LORD.
  • 00:27:30.260 --> 00:27:32.110
  • I SAID, FIRST OF ALL, I DON'T

  • I'M LIKE, I'M GOING NOWHERE.
  • 00:27:45.210 --> 00:27:47.130
  • AND JESUS IS COMING BACK IN
  • 00:27:47.130 --> 00:27:48.290

  • I'VE GOT -- THAT'S MY ATTITUDE,
  • 00:27:51.250 --> 00:27:53.050
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:27:59.070 --> 00:28:02.090
  • SO I'M -- PAUL SAID I WAS THE

  • CHIEFEST OF SINNERS.
  • 00:28:03.030 --> 00:28:04.070

  • STRIVERS.
  • 00:28:07.190 --> 00:28:08.000
  • I'M TRYING TO GET GOD TO MOVE.
  • 00:28:08.270 --> 00:28:11.270
  • MARILYN HICKEY WAS COMING TO OUR
  • 00:28:11.270 --> 00:28:13.230

  • 00:28:27.160 --> 00:28:29.230
  • AND IT SAYS, THERE WAS A MAN
  • 00:28:29.230 --> 00:28:32.140
  • SENT BY GOD WHOSE NAME WAS JOHN,
  • 00:28:32.140 --> 00:28:35.130
  • TALKING ABOUT JOHN THE BAPTIST.
  • 00:28:35.130 --> 00:28:37.220
  • AND THE HOLY SPIRIT SAID, DO YOU
  • 00:28:37.220 --> 00:28:40.060
  • WANT TO BE SENT BY YOU OR DO YOU

  • - THAT'S GOOD.
  • 00:28:50.140 --> 00:28:52.210
  • - IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT GOD USES,
  • 00:28:52.210 --> 00:28:54.260
  • GOD USES A BROKEN AND CONTRITE
  • 00:28:56.150 --> 00:28:59.150
  • HEART.
  • 00:28:59.150 --> 00:28:59.240
  • WHAT DOES BROKEN MEAN?
  • 00:28:59.240 --> 00:29:01.070
  • WHEN WE THINK OF BROKEN, WE
  • 00:29:01.070 --> 00:29:02.070
  • THINK THE GUY OR THE GAL HAS
  • 00:29:02.070 --> 00:29:04.160
  • GONE THROUGH DISASTER AND
  • 00:29:04.160 --> 00:29:05.210
  • THEY'RE LIKE FLUBBER.
  • 00:29:05.210 --> 00:29:07.070
  • THAT'S NOT BROKEN.
  • 00:29:07.080 --> 00:29:10.080
  • IF YOU WANT TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:29:11.110 --> 00:29:14.110
  • BROKEN, LOOK AT A HORSE.
  • 00:29:14.110 --> 00:29:14.290
  • YOU CAN HAVE A HORSE THAT'S MORE
  • 00:29:14.290 --> 00:29:15.220
  • GIFTED, FASTER, SWIFTER, CAN
  • 00:29:15.220 --> 00:29:17.240
  • JUMP HIGHER THAN ANY OTHER HORSE
  • 00:29:17.280 --> 00:29:20.280
  • IN THE STABLE.
  • 00:29:20.280 --> 00:29:22.270
  • BUT WHEN WARTIME COMES, LESS
  • 00:29:22.270 --> 00:29:25.110
  • GIFTED HORSES, LESS SWIFT HORSES
  • 00:29:25.110 --> 00:29:27.230
  • WILL GO TO BATTLE WHILE HE SITS
  • 00:29:27.230 --> 00:29:29.050
  • IN THE STALL.
  • 00:29:29.050 --> 00:29:29.180
  • WHY?
  • 00:29:29.180 --> 00:29:29.260
  • ONE REASON.
  • 00:29:31.190 --> 00:29:34.190
  • THEY'RE BROKEN, HE'S NOT.
  • 00:29:34.190 --> 00:29:35.130
  • WHAT DOES BROKENNESS DEAL WITH?
  • 00:29:36.180 --> 00:29:39.180
  • WHEN THE RIDER RIDES THIS HORSE
  • 00:29:39.180 --> 00:29:40.250
  • INTO THE CANNON FIRE, THAT HORSE
  • 00:29:40.250 --> 00:29:42.140
  • WILL NOT CHANGE ITS COURSE, NOT
  • 00:29:44.070 --> 00:29:47.070
  • EVEN BUDGE ACCEPT AT THE NUDGE
  • 00:29:47.070 --> 00:29:47.290
  • OF HIS MASTER.
  • 00:29:47.290 --> 00:29:49.020
  • TRUE BREAKING OCCURS WHEN WE
  • 00:29:51.090 --> 00:29:54.090
  • REALLY COME UNDER WHAT THE
  • 00:29:54.090 --> 00:29:55.120
  • AMERICANS HATE AND IT'S CALLED
  • 00:29:55.120 --> 00:29:57.140
  • AUTHORITY.
  • 00:30:00.230 --> 00:30:03.230
  • WE IN AMERICA -- WE ARE A
  • 00:30:03.230 --> 00:30:06.030
  • PEOPLE --
  • 00:30:06.030 --> 00:30:07.270
  • [ APPLAUSE ]
  • 00:30:07.270 --> 00:30:08.100
  • HERE'S WHY AMERICANS ARE
  • 00:30:08.100 --> 00:30:09.200
  • SOMETIMES THE HARDEST PEOPLE TO
  • 00:30:09.200 --> 00:30:11.060
  • COMMUNICATE THE THINGS OF GOD
  • 00:30:11.160 --> 00:30:14.160
  • TO.
  • 00:30:14.160 --> 00:30:15.000
  • AND I KNOW I'LL PROBABLY REALLY
  • 00:30:15.000 --> 00:30:16.240
  • MAKE SOME PEOPLE UPSET.
  • 00:30:16.240 --> 00:30:18.020
  • BUT WE'RE A PEOPLE TRYING TO
  • 00:30:18.020 --> 00:30:21.000
  • UNDERSTAND KINGDOM PRINCIPLES
  • 00:30:21.000 --> 00:30:22.160
  • WITH A DEMOCRATIC MINDSET.
  • 00:30:22.160 --> 00:30:23.150
  • THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NOT A
  • 00:30:23.150 --> 00:30:24.220
  • DEMOCRACY.
  • 00:30:24.220 --> 00:30:27.040
  • IT'S A KINGDOM WHICH MEANS IT
  • 00:30:27.040 --> 00:30:29.190
  • HAS RANK, ORDER AND AUTHORITY.
  • 00:30:29.260 --> 00:30:32.260
  • HE'S A REAL KING.
  • 00:30:32.260 --> 00:30:35.090
  • IF YOU TRY TO RELATE WITH GOD
  • 00:30:35.090 --> 00:30:37.030
  • WITH YOUR DEMOCRATIC MINDSET,
  • 00:30:37.030 --> 00:30:39.130
  • YOU'LL BE ON TWO TOTALLY
  • 00:30:39.130 --> 00:30:40.120
  • DIFFERENT PLAYING FIELDS.
  • 00:30:40.120 --> 00:30:42.220
  • GOD IS THE KING.
  • 00:30:42.220 --> 00:30:45.020
  • SO THE THING THAT HAD TO BE
  • 00:30:45.020 --> 00:30:47.070
  • BROKEN IN ME IS FIRST OF ALL MY
  • 00:30:47.070 --> 00:30:49.160
  • SUBMISSION TO HIS DIRECT
  • 00:30:49.160 --> 00:30:51.180
  • AUTHORITY.
  • 00:30:51.180 --> 00:30:51.290
  • AND THEN WHAT HAD TO BE BROKEN
  • 00:30:51.290 --> 00:30:54.150
  • IN ME WAS MY SUBMISSION TO HIS
  • 00:30:57.200 --> 00:31:00.220
  • DELEGATED AUTHORITY.
  • 00:31:00.220 --> 00:31:01.080
  • BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS ALL
  • 00:31:01.080 --> 00:31:01.280
  • AUTHORITY IS OF GOD.
  • 00:31:01.280 --> 00:31:02.140
  • THAT'S GOING TO MAKE SOME PEOPLE
  • 00:31:02.140 --> 00:31:03.100
  • REALLY UPSET.
  • 00:31:03.100 --> 00:31:05.060
  • BUT THE BIBLE SAYS THAT.
  • 00:31:05.060 --> 00:31:05.250
  • I DIDN'T SAY IT.
  • 00:31:05.250 --> 00:31:07.190
  • THE BIBLE ALSO SAYS ALL
  • 00:31:07.190 --> 00:31:08.210
  • AUTHORITY IS OF GOD BUT IT
  • 00:31:08.210 --> 00:31:10.200
  • DOESN'T SAY ALL AUTHORITIES ARE
  • 00:31:10.200 --> 00:31:11.130
  • GOD-LED.
  • 00:31:11.130 --> 00:31:12.280
  • THERE ARE UNGODLY AUTHORITIES
  • 00:31:12.280 --> 00:31:13.200
  • ALL THROUGHOUT THAT BIBLE.
  • 00:31:13.200 --> 00:31:15.100
  • THEIR AUTHORITY WAS FROM GOD.
  • 00:31:15.100 --> 00:31:16.070
  • THEIR BEHAVIOR WAS NOT.
  • 00:31:16.070 --> 00:31:17.220
  • SO GOD IN HIS WISDOM THAT'S
  • 00:31:17.270 --> 00:31:20.270
  • BEYOND AMAZING SAYS, OKAY, I'VE
  • 00:31:20.270 --> 00:31:22.100
  • GOT THE PERFECT RECIPE TO REFINE
  • 00:31:22.100 --> 00:31:24.280
  • YOU.
  • 00:31:24.280 --> 00:31:25.060
  • I WILL PUT YOU UNDER THIS LEADER
  • 00:31:25.060 --> 00:31:27.200
  • WHO I KNOW HAS HAD THESE ISSUES.
  • 00:31:27.200 --> 00:31:29.260
  • THAT DOESN'T MEAN I OBEY THAT
  • 00:31:29.260 --> 00:31:31.090
  • LEADER IF HE TELLS ME TO SIN.
  • 00:31:31.090 --> 00:31:33.270
  • THE BIBLE IS VERY CLEAR, LEADER
  • 00:31:33.270 --> 00:31:34.210
  • TELLS YOU TO SIN, THERE'S A
  • 00:31:34.210 --> 00:31:36.050
  • HIGHER AUTHORITY, WHETHER WE
  • 00:31:36.050 --> 00:31:37.250
  • OBEY GOD OR YOU, YOU JUDGE.
  • 00:31:37.250 --> 00:31:40.050
  • THAT'S NOT WHAT MOST AMERICANS
  • 00:31:40.050 --> 00:31:40.270
  • DEAL WITH.
  • 00:31:40.270 --> 00:31:42.090
  • MOST AMERICANS DEAL WITH THE
  • 00:31:42.090 --> 00:31:43.180
  • FACT THEY DON'T LIKE THE WAY
  • 00:31:43.180 --> 00:31:44.160
  • THEIR LEADER IS DOING IT.
  • 00:31:44.160 --> 00:31:46.020
  • IF YOU LOOK AT PETER, PETER
  • 00:31:46.020 --> 00:31:47.230
  • STICKS HIS FOOT IN HIS MOUTH
  • 00:31:47.230 --> 00:31:49.280
  • ABOUT EVERY TIME HE OPENS IT,
  • 00:31:49.280 --> 00:31:51.000
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:31:51.000 --> 00:31:51.090
  • ONE MINUTE, YOU'RE THE CHRIST.
  • 00:31:52.210 --> 00:31:55.210
  • THE NEXT MINUTE, GET BEHIND ME,
  • 00:31:55.210 --> 00:31:56.270
  • SATAN.
  • 00:31:56.270 --> 00:31:59.080
  • HE'S TRUE TO FORM IN THE UPPER
  • 00:31:59.080 --> 00:32:00.020
  • ROOM.
  • 00:32:00.020 --> 00:32:01.100
  • JESUS LEAVES HIM IN CHARGE AND
  • 00:32:01.100 --> 00:32:03.160
  • HE COMES BUSTING OUT OF HIS
  • 00:32:03.160 --> 00:32:04.280
  • STUDY AND HE SAYS, OH, MY GOSH,
  • 00:32:04.280 --> 00:32:06.140
  • JUDAS IS RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:32:06.140 --> 00:32:07.270
  • HE'S RIGHT THERE!
  • 00:32:08.100 --> 00:32:11.100
  • IN THE BOOK OF PSALM, 22, IT
  • 00:32:13.030 --> 00:32:16.030
  • SAYS, SOMEBODY'S SUPPOSED TO
  • 00:32:16.030 --> 00:32:16.240
  • REPLACE HIM.
  • 00:32:16.240 --> 00:32:18.150
  • SO LOOK OUT AMONGST US AND FIND
  • 00:32:18.150 --> 00:32:20.090
  • ALL THE GUYS HERE IN THIS 120
  • 00:32:20.090 --> 00:32:22.000
  • THAT HAVE BEEN WITH US FROM THE
  • 00:32:22.000 --> 00:32:23.090
  • BEGINNING THAT WE CAN PRAY AND
  • 00:32:23.090 --> 00:32:24.230
  • DRAW LOTS TO SEE WHO GOD CHOOSES
  • 00:32:24.230 --> 00:32:26.260
  • TO REPLACE JUDAS.
  • 00:32:26.260 --> 00:32:28.220
  • YOU AND I KNOW THAT GOD DOES NOT
  • 00:32:28.220 --> 00:32:30.110
  • CHOOSE AN APOSTLE THROUGH A
  • 00:32:30.110 --> 00:32:32.200
  • LOTTERY SYSTEM.
  • 00:32:32.220 --> 00:32:35.220
  • AND YOU SEE THE RESULTS OF HIS
  • 00:32:35.220 --> 00:32:38.020
  • LOTTERY SYSTEM.
  • 00:32:41.180 --> 00:32:44.180
  • OH, MY GOSH, MATTIAS WINS THE
  • 00:32:44.210 --> 00:32:47.210
  • LOTTERY AND YOU NEVER HEAR HIS
  • 00:32:47.210 --> 00:32:50.040
  • NAME THE REST OF THE BIBLE.
  • 00:32:50.040 --> 00:32:52.130
  • PAUL IS THE ONE CHOSEN TO
  • 00:32:52.130 --> 00:32:54.150
  • REPLACE JUDAS.
  • 00:32:54.150 --> 00:32:56.190
  • IF PETER WOULD HAVE DONE THAT
  • 00:32:56.190 --> 00:32:59.040
  • TODAY, WE WOULD HAVE HAD A
  • 00:32:59.040 --> 00:33:00.060
  • THREE-WAY CHURCH SPLIT.
  • 00:33:10.130 --> 00:33:13.130
  • AND YET THE BIBLE SAYS IN THE
  • 00:33:13.130 --> 00:33:15.120
  • VERY NEXT VERSE, THEY WERE ALL
  • 00:33:15.120 --> 00:33:16.200
  • WITH ONE ACCORD.
  • 00:33:17.170 --> 00:33:20.170
  • AND BECAUSE OF THAT, THE GLORY
  • 00:33:20.170 --> 00:33:22.180
  • OF GOD FALLS ON THAT CITY.
  • 00:33:23.250 --> 00:33:26.250
  • HERE'S THE THING THAT THE HOLY
  • 00:33:26.250 --> 00:33:28.000
  • SPIRIT SAID TO ME ONE DAY, HE
  • 00:33:28.000 --> 00:33:30.030
  • SAID, DID YOU NOTICE PETER WAS
  • 00:33:30.030 --> 00:33:30.260
  • OUT OF SYNC WITH ME.
  • 00:33:30.260 --> 00:33:33.110
  • PETER WASN'T EVEN IN SYNC WITH
  • 00:33:33.110 --> 00:33:35.250
  • GOD.
  • 00:33:35.250 --> 00:33:36.030
  • HE WASN'T TELLING THEM TO SIN.
  • 00:33:36.030 --> 00:33:37.270
  • IF PETER WOULD HAVE SAID, WE'RE
  • 00:33:37.270 --> 00:33:39.130
  • GOING TO GO OUT AND STEAL, THEY
  • 00:33:39.130 --> 00:33:41.060
  • WOULD HAVE SAID, PETER, WE'RE
  • 00:33:41.060 --> 00:33:43.040
  • OUT OF HERE.
  • 00:33:43.040 --> 00:33:44.220
  • WE'VE GOT TO REPLACE YOU.
  • 00:33:46.100 --> 00:33:49.100
  • BUT HE JUST WANTED TO PICK THE
  • 00:33:49.100 --> 00:33:51.210
  • APOSTLE WITH A LOTTERY SYSTEM BY
  • 00:33:51.210 --> 00:33:52.250
  • DRAWING LOTS.
  • 00:33:52.250 --> 00:33:55.080
  • HE'S OUT OF SYNC.
  • 00:33:55.080 --> 00:33:56.250
  • PAUL WAS THE ONE THAT GOD CHOSE.
  • 00:33:56.250 --> 00:33:58.110
  • THAT'S WHY HE WAS THE ONE BORN
  • 00:33:58.110 --> 00:33:59.120
  • OUT OF DUE TIME.
  • 00:33:59.120 --> 00:34:01.120
  • BUT BECAUSE WE WERE ONE, THE
  • 00:34:01.120 --> 00:34:02.190
  • WHOLE CITY GOT AFFECTED.
  • 00:34:02.250 --> 00:34:05.250
  • THIS IS WHAT THE LORD PUT IN MY
  • 00:34:05.250 --> 00:34:07.140
  • HEART ONE DAY.
  • 00:34:07.140 --> 00:34:07.280
  • HE SAID, HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL
  • 00:34:07.280 --> 00:34:08.220
  • STAND BEFORE MY THRONE AND HAVE
  • 00:34:08.220 --> 00:34:10.150
  • TO GIVE AN ACCOUNT FOR THE
  • 00:34:10.150 --> 00:34:11.240
  • PEOPLE NOT REACHED IN THEIR
  • 00:34:11.240 --> 00:34:13.210
  • COMMUNITY BECAUSE THEY WEREN'T
  • 00:34:13.210 --> 00:34:14.180
  • ONE WITH THE LEADER I PUT THEM
  • 00:34:14.180 --> 00:34:15.110
  • UNDER?
  • 00:34:17.000 --> 00:34:20.000
  • SO I'M CONVINCED HAD I NOT
  • 00:34:20.000 --> 00:34:22.050
  • LEARNED THIS LESSON, HAD I NOT
  • 00:34:22.090 --> 00:34:25.090
  • LEARNED IT, I DON'T BELIEVE I'D
  • 00:34:25.090 --> 00:34:26.180
  • BE SITTING ON THIS SET RIGHT
  • 00:34:26.180 --> 00:34:29.070
  • NOW, I DON'T BELIEVE YOU EVER
  • 00:34:29.070 --> 00:34:31.010
  • WOULD HAVE READ ONE BOOK BY JOHN
  • 00:34:31.010 --> 00:34:32.070
  • BEVERE.
  • 00:34:32.070 --> 00:34:32.170
  • THE GREATEST TEST I EVER HAD IN
  • 00:34:32.170 --> 00:34:34.050
  • THIS WAS MY PASTOR, I WAS HIS
  • 00:34:34.170 --> 00:34:37.170
  • YOUTH PASTOR AND I HAD DONE
  • 00:34:37.170 --> 00:34:40.080
  • STUDIES AND I FOUND OUT THE
  • 00:34:40.200 --> 00:34:43.200
  • FASTEST, BEST YOUTH GROUP IN THE
  • 00:34:43.200 --> 00:34:44.230
  • WHOLE COUNTRY WAS IN LOUISIANA.
  • 00:34:44.230 --> 00:34:46.000
  • I FLEW THERE, SPENT FOUR DAYS
  • 00:34:46.000 --> 00:34:46.230
  • WITH THEM.
  • 00:34:46.230 --> 00:34:47.280
  • I PRAYED.
  • 00:34:47.280 --> 00:34:48.090
  • GOD SAID DO IT.
  • 00:34:48.090 --> 00:34:50.010
  • THEY WERE DOING THESE PARTY
  • 00:34:50.010 --> 00:34:50.220
  • CONCEPTS.
  • 00:34:50.220 --> 00:34:53.030
  • 113 PARTIES IN THE CITY OF BATON
  • 00:34:56.080 --> 00:34:59.080
  • ROUGE EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT AND THE
  • 00:34:59.080 --> 00:35:00.190
  • KIDS WOULD TARGET AN UNSAVED KID
  • 00:35:00.190 --> 00:35:02.270
  • IN THEIR HIGH SCHOOL AND TARGET
  • 00:35:02.270 --> 00:35:03.190
  • THE PARTY.
  • 00:35:03.190 --> 00:35:05.160
  • THEY HAD FOUR YOUTH PASTORS IN
  • 00:35:05.160 --> 00:35:07.090
  • THIS CHURCH.
  • 00:35:07.090 --> 00:35:09.180
  • THOSE KIDS WERE SO PASSIONATE
  • 00:35:09.180 --> 00:35:11.010
  • ABOUT JESUS.
  • 00:35:11.010 --> 00:35:11.250
  • I WENT TO THEIR GENERAL
  • 00:35:11.250 --> 00:35:14.010
  • WEDNESDAY NIGHT SERVICE AND THEY
  • 00:35:14.010 --> 00:35:15.030
  • WERE SITTING ON THE EDGE OF
  • 00:35:15.030 --> 00:35:16.030
  • THEIR SEATS.
  • 00:35:16.030 --> 00:35:17.240
  • AND I REMEMBER GOING TO THAT
  • 00:35:17.240 --> 00:35:18.290
  • PARTY, THE MUSIC IS BLASTING,
  • 00:35:18.290 --> 00:35:21.220
  • THEY GOT THE CHIPS OUT, SOFT
  • 00:35:21.220 --> 00:35:23.270
  • DRINKS, THEY'RE JUST TALKING AND
  • 00:35:23.270 --> 00:35:24.270
  • THIS ONE GUY WHO'S THE LEADER,
  • 00:35:24.270 --> 00:35:27.060
  • NOBODY KNOWS HE'S THE LEADER, HE
  • 00:35:27.230 --> 00:35:30.230
  • STARTS A DISCUSSION ABOUT
  • 00:35:30.230 --> 00:35:31.240

  • WHO HAVE BECOME MY CALLING.
  • 00:42:21.110 --> 00:42:23.110
  • MY JOURNEY STARTED AT 20 YEARS
  • 00:42:23.110 --> 00:42:24.280
  • OF AGE WHEN MY FATHER GOT A
  • 00:42:24.280 --> 00:42:26.180
  • LITTLE BUILDING IN DOWNTOWN L.A.
  • 00:42:26.180 --> 00:42:28.110
  • CALLED BETHEL TEMPLE.
  • 00:42:28.110 --> 00:42:30.050
  • IT WAS A CHURCH NOBODY WANTED.
  • 00:42:30.050 --> 00:42:31.190
  • FILLED WITH GANGS AROUND THE
  • 00:42:31.190 --> 00:42:33.210
  • NEIGHBORHOOD, CRIME.
  • 00:42:33.210 --> 00:42:36.030
  • WHEN I SAID YES TO MY DAD
  • 00:42:36.150 --> 00:42:39.150
  • BECOMING PASTOR OF THE CHURCH, I
  • 00:42:39.150 --> 00:42:41.140
  • DROVE FROM PHOENIX ACROSS THE
  • 00:42:41.140 --> 00:42:42.150
  • DESERT TO L.A. AND I SAW THOSE
  • 00:42:42.150 --> 00:42:45.020
  • HIGH-RISE BUILDINGS.
  • 00:42:45.020 --> 00:42:45.260
  • THEY LOOKED LIKE GIANTS TO ME.
  • 00:42:45.260 --> 00:42:48.160
  • THEY LOOKED LIKE GIANTS THAT
  • 00:42:48.160 --> 00:42:49.150
  • COULD NEVER BE KNOCKED DOWN.
  • 00:42:49.150 --> 00:42:51.150
  • I WAS HUMBLED VERY QUICKLY ON MY
  • 00:42:51.150 --> 00:42:53.090
  • JOURNEY WHEN I GOT HERE AND
  • 00:42:54.020 --> 00:42:57.020
  • INHERITED 18 PEOPLE BUT THAT WAS
  • 00:42:57.020 --> 00:42:57.270
  • A TIME WHERE I REALIZED THAT I
  • 00:42:57.270 --> 00:43:00.070
  • HAD TO GO THROUGH BROKENNESS IN
  • 00:43:00.070 --> 00:43:01.200
  • ORDER TO FIND MY CALLING.
  • 00:43:02.230 --> 00:43:05.230
  • AND THEN ONE NIGHT AS I WAS
  • 00:43:05.290 --> 00:43:08.290
  • WEEPING FOR ENDLESS HOURS, THE
  • 00:43:08.290 --> 00:43:09.280
  • LORD SPOKE TO ME, STOP YOUR

  • PARK.
  • 00:43:17.210 --> 00:43:18.020
  • THAT WAS REVEALING THAT NIGHT.
  • 00:43:18.020 --> 00:43:19.090
  • BECAUSE THAT NIGHT, I WALKED
  • 00:43:19.090 --> 00:43:20.130
  • AROUND AND I SAW HELICOPTERS IN
  • 00:43:20.130 --> 00:43:22.150
  • THE PARK LOOKING FOR CRIMINALS.
  • 00:43:22.150 --> 00:43:23.240
  • I SAW YOUNG BOYS BEING ARRESTED.
  • 00:43:27.290 --> 00:43:30.290
  • IT WAS LIKE GOD PUT EVERY
  • 00:43:30.290 --> 00:43:31.190
  • HURTING PERSON IN ONE PARK IN
  • 00:43:31.190 --> 00:43:32.100
  • ONE NIGHT.
  • 00:43:32.100 --> 00:43:32.210
  • AS I CRIED OUT TO GOD, GOD,
  • 00:43:32.210 --> 00:43:33.120
  • SPEAK TO ME.
  • 00:43:33.120 --> 00:43:35.080
  • HE SAID, YOU BUILD THE PEOPLE,
  • 00:43:35.080 --> 00:43:37.130
  • THEN I'LL BUILD THE CHURCH.
  • 00:43:37.130 --> 00:43:38.180
  • I SAID, WHAT PEOPLE, GOD?
  • 00:43:38.180 --> 00:43:40.080
  • I CAN'T GET THESE PEOPLE TO COME
  • 00:43:40.080 --> 00:43:41.080
  • TO MY CHURCH.
  • 00:43:41.080 --> 00:43:42.110
  • HE SAID, LOOK AROUND THIS PARK.
  • 00:43:42.110 --> 00:43:44.260
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO LOOK FORWARD,
  • 00:43:44.260 --> 00:43:47.180
  • JUST LOOK EVERYWHERE.
  • 00:43:47.180 --> 00:43:48.060
  • AND EVERYWHERE THAT I LOOKED, I
  • 00:43:48.060 --> 00:43:49.090
  • SAW BROKEN PEOPLE IN MY FACE.
  • 00:43:49.090 --> 00:43:52.000
  • THAT WAS THE NIGHT GOD BEGAN TO
  • 00:43:52.100 --> 00:43:55.100
  • CHANGE MY LIFE COMPLETELY.
  • 00:43:55.100 --> 00:43:56.270
  • A CAUSE THAT I NEVER KNEW WAS IN
  • 00:43:56.270 --> 00:43:57.210
  • ME.
  • 00:43:57.210 --> 00:43:59.140
  • A DREAM FOR PEOPLE THAT I NEVER
  • 00:43:59.140 --> 00:44:02.000
  • KNEW I COULD EVEN DREAM FOR.
  • 00:44:02.000 --> 00:44:03.150
  • THAT WAS THE NIGHT WHERE I
  • 00:44:03.150 --> 00:44:04.280
  • THOUGHT WAS THE WORST MOMENT OF
  • 00:44:04.280 --> 00:44:05.210
  • MY LIFE.
  • 00:44:05.210 --> 00:44:08.180
  • THE THING I REALIZED IS GOD
  • 00:44:08.180 --> 00:44:10.250
  • DOESN'T DESTROY PEOPLE IN ROCK
  • 00:44:10.250 --> 00:44:12.090
  • BOTTOM.
  • 00:44:12.090 --> 00:44:12.190
  • HE RECREATES PEOPLE IN ROCK
  • 00:44:12.190 --> 00:44:14.040
  • BOMB.
  • 00:44:18.130 --> 00:44:21.130
  • GOD TOLD ME, SERVE ME WITH
  • 00:44:21.130 --> 00:44:23.100
  • WHATEVER YOU HAVE.
  • 00:44:23.100 --> 00:44:23.290
  • I SAID, GOD, I HAVE NOTHING

  • LEFT.
  • 00:44:25.070 --> 00:44:27.090
  • HE SAID, YOU HAVE A DESK AND YOU
  • 00:44:27.090 --> 00:44:28.020
  • HAVE A PHONE.
  • 00:44:28.020 --> 00:44:29.240
  • MOVE YOUR DESK AND THE PHONE
  • 00:44:29.240 --> 00:44:32.150
  • OUTSIDE ON THE SIDEWALK, BUY
  • 00:44:32.150 --> 00:44:33.270
  • FREE BAGS OF FOOD AND GIVE THEM
  • 00:44:33.270 --> 00:44:36.020
  • AWAY TO ANYBODY WHO HAS NEED IN
  • 00:44:36.020 --> 00:44:36.240
  • YOUR COMMUNITY.
  • 00:44:36.240 --> 00:44:38.110
  • WHEN I DID THAT, THAT WAS THE
  • 00:44:38.250 --> 00:44:41.250
  • BEGINNING OF OUR ADOPT A BLOCK.
  • 00:44:41.250 --> 00:44:43.110

  • ADOPTED, THE SIDEWALK NEXT TO
  • 00:44:45.170 --> 00:44:46.200
  • THE CHURCH.
  • 00:44:46.200 --> 00:44:48.170
  • THEN I BEGAN TO TELL PEOPLE IN
  • 00:44:48.170 --> 00:44:50.030
  • THE CHURCH ABOUT THE JOY IT IS
  • 00:44:50.030 --> 00:44:51.220
  • TO SERVE OUR COMMUNITY.
  • 00:44:51.220 --> 00:44:52.160

  • AS WE BEGAN TO SEE THE NEEDS OF

  • PEOPLE EVERY DAY, THAT'S WHEN
  • 00:45:09.130 --> 00:45:10.230
  • THE MINISTRY WAS BORN.
  • 00:45:10.230 --> 00:45:12.090
  • IT WASN'T BORN IN A COMMITTEE
  • 00:45:12.090 --> 00:45:13.030
  • ROOM OR IN A PLANNING ROOM.
  • 00:45:13.030 --> 00:45:15.230
  • IT WAS BORN IN THE LIVING ROOMS
  • 00:45:15.230 --> 00:45:16.190
  • OF PEOPLE'S HOUSES.
  • 00:45:16.190 --> 00:45:19.170

  • FORM.
  • 00:45:23.190 --> 00:45:23.280
  • WHEN THE WORLD SEES THE CHURCH
  • 00:45:23.280 --> 00:45:24.220
  • AS A DANGEROUS PLACE, I BELIEVE
  • 00:45:24.220 --> 00:45:26.210
  • THAT'S THE MARK OF A GREAT
  • 00:45:26.210 --> 00:45:29.060
  • CHURCH.
  • 00:45:29.060 --> 00:45:29.160
  • WHEN THEY SAY, WOW, SUNDAY

  • CHURCH COMES ALIVE.
  • 00:45:37.250 --> 00:45:39.090
  • WHEN WE BECOME A PRACTICAL
  • 00:45:39.090 --> 00:45:41.030
  • COMPONENT OF CHANGE IN OUR
  • 00:45:41.030 --> 00:45:43.240
  • COMMUNITY.
  • 00:45:43.240 --> 00:45:45.170
  • IN ONE DAY, NOT KIDDING YOU,
  • 00:45:45.170 --> 00:45:47.250
  • TRUCKS SHOWED UP FROM TBN
  • 00:45:48.010 --> 00:45:51.010

  • 00:45:58.130 --> 00:45:58.210
  • WE DIDN'T HAVE ANYONE TO RUN
  • 00:45:58.210 --> 00:46:00.060
  • CAMERAS BUT THEN MATT CROUCH
  • 00:46:00.060 --> 00:46:01.130

  • TO DO ALL THAT WE DO TODAY.
  • 00:46:15.060 --> 00:46:17.270

  • AND IN 48 HOURS OF LIVING
  • 00:46:27.140 --> 00:46:29.100
  • HOMELESS, I LEARNED SOMETHING.
  • 00:46:29.100 --> 00:46:31.000
  • THAT PEOPLE THAT ARE IN NEED

  • CREATE YOU TO BE RELIGIOUS.
  • 00:49:25.240 --> 00:49:26.240

  • THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT OUR
  • 00:49:36.170 --> 00:49:38.090
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD IS LIKE A
  • 00:49:38.090 --> 00:49:39.110
  • HUSBAND AND A WIFE.
  • 00:49:41.170 --> 00:49:44.170
  • YOU CAN KNOW JESUS DIED ON THE

  • HAVE A COVENANT RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:49:56.070 --> 00:49:56.280
  • WITH HIM.
  • 00:49:56.280 --> 00:49:58.180
  • LET ME GIVE YOU AN ILLUSTRATION.
  • 00:49:58.180 --> 00:50:00.270
  • YOU CAN HAVE A GIRL DATING A
  • 00:50:00.270 --> 00:50:02.100
  • GUY.
  • 00:50:02.100 --> 00:50:02.180
  • AND THAT GIRL KNOWS THAT THAT
  • 00:50:02.180 --> 00:50:05.100
  • GUY IS AN EXCELLENT QUARTERBACK.
  • 00:50:05.100 --> 00:50:06.160
  • SHE KNOWS THAT GUY HAS A SCAR ON
  • 00:50:06.160 --> 00:50:08.280
  • HIS FOREHEAD FROM A BICYCLE
  • 00:50:08.280 --> 00:50:10.270

  • EXCELLENT MATH STUDENT.
  • 00:50:13.020 --> 00:50:14.210
  • SHE'S BEEN TO THAT GUY'S HOUSE
  • 00:50:14.210 --> 00:50:16.060
  • AND MET HIS SIBLINGS.
  • 00:50:16.060 --> 00:50:17.260
  • THAT DOESN'T GIVE HER A COVENANT
  • 00:50:17.260 --> 00:50:18.190
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.
  • 00:50:18.190 --> 00:50:20.090
  • HE'S NOT UNTIL HE GETS DOWN ON
  • 00:50:20.090 --> 00:50:22.100
  • ONE KNEE AND SAYS, WILL YOU
  • 00:50:22.100 --> 00:50:24.240
  • MARRY ME?
  • 00:50:24.240 --> 00:50:25.050
  • AT THAT POINT, SHE'S GOT A
  • 00:50:25.050 --> 00:50:25.250
  • DECISION TO MAKE.
  • 00:50:25.250 --> 00:50:26.210
  • THAT'S WHAT I'M ASKING YOU TO DO
  • 00:50:27.080 --> 00:50:30.080
  • TONIGHT.
  • 00:50:30.080 --> 00:50:30.180
  • SHE CAN IGNORE HIS PROPOSAL AND
  • 00:50:30.180 --> 00:50:32.110
  • CONTINUE LIFE AS IS KNOWING
  • 00:50:32.110 --> 00:50:33.220
  • ABOUT HIM, EVEN GOING TO HIS
  • 00:50:33.220 --> 00:50:35.050
  • HOUSE AND MEETING HIS SIBLINGS.
  • 00:50:35.050 --> 00:50:36.290
  • BUT THAT DOESN'T GIVE HER A
  • 00:50:36.290 --> 00:50:39.030
  • COVENANT RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:50:39.030 --> 00:50:39.210
  • OR SHE CAN SAY YES.
  • 00:50:39.210 --> 00:50:41.040
  • IF HE SAYS YES, A COUPLE OF
  • 00:50:41.060 --> 00:50:44.060
  • MONTHS LATER, SHE'LL PUT ON A
  • 00:50:44.060 --> 00:50:44.280
  • WHITE DRESS, WALK DOWN THE AISLE
  • 00:50:44.280 --> 00:50:47.020
  • AND SAY SOMETHING VERY
  • 00:50:47.020 --> 00:50:49.240
  • SIGNIFICANT BY DOING THAT,
  • 00:50:49.240 --> 00:50:50.160
  • SAYING GOOD-BYE TO EVERY MAN ON
  • 00:50:50.160 --> 00:50:51.260
  • THE PLANET EXCEPT FOR THE GUY
  • 00:50:51.260 --> 00:50:53.270
  • WAITING FOR HER, SHE'S GIVING
  • 00:50:53.270 --> 00:50:55.170
  • HER ENTIRE HEART, HER ENTIRE
  • 00:50:55.170 --> 00:50:56.200
  • LIFE TO HIM.
  • 00:50:57.050 --> 00:51:00.070
  • WHEN JESUS DIED FOR US ON THE
  • 00:51:00.070 --> 00:51:01.290
  • CROSS, WHEN HE SHED HIS BLOOD TO
  • 00:51:01.290 --> 00:51:03.100
  • GET US OUT OF SLAVERY, THAT WAS
  • 00:51:03.100 --> 00:51:05.070
  • HIM GETTING DOWN ON ONE KNEE AND
  • 00:51:05.070 --> 00:51:07.280
  • SAYING, WOULD YOU BE MY BRIDE,
  • 00:51:07.280 --> 00:51:09.210
  • THE BRIDE OF CHRIST?
  • 00:51:09.210 --> 00:51:12.010
  • AT THIS POINT, WE HAVE A
  • 00:51:12.010 --> 00:51:13.030
  • DECISION TO MAKE.
  • 00:51:13.030 --> 00:51:13.280
  • WE CAN IGNORE HIS PROPOSAL OR WE
  • 00:51:13.280 --> 00:51:15.230
  • CAN SAY YES.
  • 00:51:15.230 --> 00:51:16.280
  • IF WE SAY YES THAT MEANS WE'RE
  • 00:51:16.280 --> 00:51:19.270
  • GOING TO DO WHAT THAT BRIDE
  • 00:51:19.270 --> 00:51:21.020
  • DOES, GIVE HIM OUR ENTIRE HEART,

  • DON'T LET ANYBODY EVER FOOL YOU.
  • 00:51:39.090 --> 00:51:42.090
  • DON'T EVER TAKE FALSE SECURITY
  • 00:51:42.090 --> 00:51:43.030
  • IN JUST PLAYING A COIN PRAYER
  • 00:51:43.030 --> 00:51:44.120
  • BUT NOT HAVING YOUR HEART
