  • about the local church.

  • full potential come to pass.
  • 00:00:15.240 --> 00:00:17.250
  • We're on a mission to see
  • 00:00:17.250 --> 00:00:19.110
  • God's kingdom established

  • - Gary Clarke: Hi, once again,
  • 00:00:58.060 --> 00:01:01.080
  • welcome to London,
  • 00:01:01.080 --> 00:01:03.050
  • welcome to Hillsong Church.
  • 00:01:03.050 --> 00:01:04.210
  • Here in London, we meet
  • 00:01:04.210 --> 00:01:05.260
  • in the Dominion Theatre
  • 00:01:05.260 --> 00:01:07.060
  • every Sunday
  • 00:01:07.060 --> 00:01:08.260
  • right in the heart of London.
  • 00:01:08.260 --> 00:01:11.040
  • Today, we're just going to be
  • 00:01:11.040 --> 00:01:12.270
  • coming around the Word,
  • 00:01:12.270 --> 00:01:14.040
  • looking at the power
  • 00:01:14.040 --> 00:01:15.030
  • and the impact of the things
  • 00:01:15.030 --> 00:01:16.110
  • - Gary: Psalms 78 and verse 7
  • 00:01:21.040 --> 00:01:24.040
  • says this;
  • 00:01:24.040 --> 00:01:26.190
  • it says, "So each generation
  • 00:01:26.190 --> 00:01:28.260
  • should set its hope anew on God,
  • 00:01:28.260 --> 00:01:31.090
  • not forgetting
  • 00:01:31.090 --> 00:01:32.090
  • his glorious miracles
  • 00:01:32.090 --> 00:01:34.050
  • and obeying his commands."
  • 00:01:34.050 --> 00:01:36.060
  • I was reading it,
  • 00:01:36.060 --> 00:01:38.000
  • and I just saw that statement
  • 00:01:38.000 --> 00:01:40.010
  • where it just says,
  • 00:01:40.010 --> 00:01:41.060
  • "So, each generation should
  • 00:01:41.060 --> 00:01:43.290
  • set its hope anew in God."
  • 00:01:43.290 --> 00:01:45.240
  • Now when--if you read that,
  • 00:01:45.240 --> 00:01:47.220
  • you realize that if
  • 00:01:47.220 --> 00:01:49.020
  • each generation should set its
  • 00:01:49.020 --> 00:01:51.210
  • hope anew in God, it means that
  • 00:01:51.210 --> 00:01:53.190
  • maybe it's possible not to set
  • 00:01:55.140 --> 00:01:58.140
  • your hope anew in God.
  • 00:01:58.140 --> 00:02:01.050
  • And so, just that thought of
  • 00:02:01.050 --> 00:02:03.240
  • setting our hope anew in God,
  • 00:02:03.240 --> 00:02:06.080
  • hope, that expectation.
  • 00:02:06.080 --> 00:02:08.070
  • What is--what can God do?
  • 00:02:08.070 --> 00:02:10.100
  • How does God work?
  • 00:02:10.100 --> 00:02:11.290
  • How does--what does--
  • 00:02:11.290 --> 00:02:13.120
  • what can--what is God going to--
  • 00:02:13.120 --> 00:02:15.070
  • going to do?
  • 00:02:15.070 --> 00:02:16.250
  • And I think part of our
  • 00:02:16.250 --> 00:02:18.120
  • challenges is to help
  • 00:02:18.120 --> 00:02:20.020
  • a generation to be able to get
  • 00:02:20.030 --> 00:02:23.030
  • the right picture of God,
  • 00:02:23.030 --> 00:02:25.210
  • to actually see him correctly.
  • 00:02:25.210 --> 00:02:27.200
  • Because see, you only really
  • 00:02:27.200 --> 00:02:29.280
  • expect God to do
  • 00:02:29.280 --> 00:02:32.140
  • according to how you see him.
  • 00:02:32.140 --> 00:02:35.080
  • And so, part of our challenge is
  • 00:02:35.080 --> 00:02:37.180
  • making sure that we
  • 00:02:37.180 --> 00:02:39.100
  • learn how to.
  • 00:02:39.100 --> 00:02:40.040
  • And as individuals, we can work
  • 00:02:40.040 --> 00:02:42.210
  • out how to help people with
  • 00:02:42.210 --> 00:02:44.140
  • their picture of God.
  • 00:02:44.140 --> 00:02:47.060
  • What is their picture of him?
  • 00:02:47.060 --> 00:02:48.230
  • What is their understanding
  • 00:02:48.230 --> 00:02:49.280
  • of Jesus?
  • 00:02:49.280 --> 00:02:51.040
  • Because as I said, that will
  • 00:02:51.040 --> 00:02:52.220
  • determine what people's hope or
  • 00:02:52.220 --> 00:02:54.280
  • their--or what they're putting
  • 00:02:54.280 --> 00:02:56.140
  • their faith in, believing what
  • 00:02:56.140 --> 00:02:58.040
  • they're going to see God do
  • 00:02:58.040 --> 00:02:59.240
  • in their life, right?
  • 00:02:59.240 --> 00:03:01.130
  • Now, so he says here, says,
  • 00:03:01.130 --> 00:03:03.010
  • "Not forgetting his glorious
  • 00:03:03.010 --> 00:03:05.200
  • miracles."
  • 00:03:05.200 --> 00:03:07.210
  • In other words,
  • 00:03:07.210 --> 00:03:08.160
  • not--which it's interesting.
  • 00:03:08.160 --> 00:03:09.290
  • Don't forget what God has done.
  • 00:03:10.130 --> 00:03:13.130
  • Because see, sometimes if
  • 00:03:13.130 --> 00:03:14.240
  • we're not careful, we can forget
  • 00:03:14.240 --> 00:03:16.070
  • the things that God has done.
  • 00:03:16.070 --> 00:03:17.280
  • All right?
  • 00:03:17.280 --> 00:03:19.050
  • So, and the reason
  • 00:03:19.050 --> 00:03:20.260
  • I believe he's saying,
  • 00:03:20.260 --> 00:03:22.070
  • "Don't forget the things that--
  • 00:03:22.070 --> 00:03:23.240
  • what God has done," because see,
  • 00:03:23.240 --> 00:03:25.190
  • the "what God has done"
  • 00:03:25.190 --> 00:03:27.160
  • is often the thing
  • 00:03:27.160 --> 00:03:29.210
  • that fuels your expectation
  • 00:03:30.010 --> 00:03:33.010
  • to what God can do.
  • 00:03:33.090 --> 00:03:36.090
  • What is possible in the now and
  • 00:03:36.090 --> 00:03:39.090
  • even possible in the future,
  • 00:03:39.090 --> 00:03:40.250
  • it fuels this thing,
  • 00:03:41.110 --> 00:03:44.110
  • where it's like, "Don't forget
  • 00:03:44.110 --> 00:03:45.110
  • what God has done."
  • 00:03:45.110 --> 00:03:46.150
  • Now, here's the challenge.
  • 00:03:46.150 --> 00:03:47.170
  • The challenge is don't dwell in
  • 00:03:47.170 --> 00:03:48.270
  • what God did yesterday either.
  • 00:03:48.290 --> 00:03:51.290
  • We've got to be careful not to
  • 00:03:51.290 --> 00:03:52.260
  • live in the things that God did
  • 00:03:52.260 --> 00:03:54.120
  • yesterday, whether it be
  • 00:03:54.120 --> 00:03:55.140
  • individually, or whether it be
  • 00:03:55.140 --> 00:03:57.090
  • corporately together, us.
  • 00:03:57.090 --> 00:03:59.050
  • Let's not get caught up in
  • 00:03:59.050 --> 00:04:00.190
  • the good ol' days because if
  • 00:04:00.190 --> 00:04:02.150
  • you really think back to it,
  • 00:04:02.150 --> 00:04:03.200
  • the good ol' days weren't really
  • 00:04:03.200 --> 00:04:04.240
  • that good in comparison.
  • 00:04:04.240 --> 00:04:07.090
  • And let's be careful that
  • 00:04:07.090 --> 00:04:08.190
  • we don't have good ol' days
  • 00:04:08.190 --> 00:04:09.280
  • into comparison to now.
  • 00:04:09.280 --> 00:04:11.250
  • And what I mean by that is that
  • 00:04:11.250 --> 00:04:13.050
  • each one of us has got a story.
  • 00:04:13.050 --> 00:04:14.270
  • Now, in our Christianese,
  • 00:04:14.270 --> 00:04:16.200
  • we call that a testimony.
  • 00:04:16.200 --> 00:04:18.210
  • In other words we--a testimony,
  • 00:04:18.260 --> 00:04:21.260
  • a talking about
  • 00:04:21.260 --> 00:04:23.280
  • this is my God story.
  • 00:04:23.280 --> 00:04:25.270
  • You know, I think the challenge
  • 00:04:25.270 --> 00:04:28.000
  • for us is to make sure that our
  • 00:04:28.000 --> 00:04:29.160
  • God story is not somewhere
  • 00:04:29.160 --> 00:04:31.140
  • back in the past.
  • 00:04:31.140 --> 00:04:32.250
  • "This is what I was.
  • 00:04:32.250 --> 00:04:34.100
  • This is what I was doing.
  • 00:04:34.100 --> 00:04:35.130
  • I met Jesus.
  • 00:04:35.130 --> 00:04:36.100
  • This is who I am, and I don't do
  • 00:04:36.100 --> 00:04:37.100
  • that anymore.
  • 00:04:37.100 --> 00:04:38.050
  • That's it, that's my God story."
  • 00:04:38.050 --> 00:04:40.120
  • And we're going to kind of
  • 00:04:40.120 --> 00:04:41.280
  • challenge you to believe that
  • 00:04:41.280 --> 00:04:44.120
  • your story, your God story, what
  • 00:04:44.120 --> 00:04:46.180
  • is God doing in your life, have
  • 00:04:46.180 --> 00:04:48.140
  • it--what's he doing in your life
  • 00:04:48.140 --> 00:04:49.290
  • now?
  • 00:04:49.290 --> 00:04:52.020
  • Where are you seeing God now?
  • 00:04:52.020 --> 00:04:53.280
  • What's God--what's God piecing
  • 00:04:53.280 --> 00:04:56.010
  • together inside you now?
  • 00:04:56.010 --> 00:04:57.150
  • What's God sorting out?
  • 00:04:57.150 --> 00:04:59.100
  • What's God--how's God shaping
  • 00:04:59.100 --> 00:05:00.240
  • your view on life?
  • 00:05:00.240 --> 00:05:02.060
  • How's God empowering you
  • 00:05:02.060 --> 00:05:03.250
  • in the things that you do?
  • 00:05:03.250 --> 00:05:05.150
  • What is he doing now
  • 00:05:05.150 --> 00:05:06.150
  • in your life?
  • 00:05:06.150 --> 00:05:07.140
  • Make sure your God story
  • 00:05:07.140 --> 00:05:09.030
  • is a now story,
  • 00:05:09.030 --> 00:05:10.210
  • that it's not just a yesterday.
  • 00:05:11.000 --> 00:05:14.000
  • Don't forget what he did
  • 00:05:14.000 --> 00:05:14.290
  • yesterday because sometimes when
  • 00:05:14.290 --> 00:05:16.290
  • you're facing the giants of
  • 00:05:16.290 --> 00:05:19.000
  • today, you need to be able to
  • 00:05:19.000 --> 00:05:20.160
  • turn around and look at
  • 00:05:20.160 --> 00:05:21.180
  • the giants of yesterday.
  • 00:05:21.180 --> 00:05:23.030
  • And this is what I've noticed
  • 00:05:23.030 --> 00:05:24.090
  • about the giants of yesterday.
  • 00:05:24.090 --> 00:05:25.240
  • Because you are past them,
  • 00:05:25.240 --> 00:05:27.120
  • they don't look that big.
  • 00:05:27.160 --> 00:05:30.160
  • But when you are looking at
  • 00:05:30.160 --> 00:05:31.170
  • them, they seemed enormous
  • 00:05:31.170 --> 00:05:33.050
  • until that's no longer an issue
  • 00:05:33.050 --> 00:05:35.170
  • because you've got a God story
  • 00:05:35.170 --> 00:05:36.230
  • to do with that.
  • 00:05:36.230 --> 00:05:37.290
  • You get to be this side of it,
  • 00:05:37.290 --> 00:05:39.070
  • you get to look at it,
  • 00:05:39.070 --> 00:05:40.150
  • and you get to say, "Wow."
  • 00:05:40.150 --> 00:05:41.260
  • Because then that's going to
  • 00:05:41.260 --> 00:05:44.000
  • build faith because this sucker
  • 00:05:44.000 --> 00:05:45.100
  • you're standing in looks huge.
  • 00:05:45.100 --> 00:05:47.080
  • But you're going to get to stand
  • 00:05:47.080 --> 00:05:48.170
  • on the other side of it, and
  • 00:05:48.170 --> 00:05:49.170
  • you're going to be able to say,
  • 00:05:49.170 --> 00:05:50.130
  • "Well, didn't look that big
  • 00:05:50.130 --> 00:05:51.280
  • after all."
  • 00:05:51.280 --> 00:05:53.170
  • All right, so make
  • 00:05:53.170 --> 00:05:54.070
  • sure your God story is current.
  • 00:05:54.200 --> 00:05:57.200
  • He goes--he sort of says here,
  • 00:05:57.200 --> 00:05:59.100
  • he says, you know,
  • 00:05:59.100 --> 00:06:01.220
  • "And obeying his commands."
  • 00:06:01.220 --> 00:06:03.160
  • The commands of God,
  • 00:06:03.160 --> 00:06:05.210
  • the ways of God,
  • 00:06:05.210 --> 00:06:06.270
  • the wisdom of God,
  • 00:06:06.270 --> 00:06:09.080
  • the how God says to do things.
  • 00:06:09.080 --> 00:06:11.250
  • You know, I tend to--I tend to
  • 00:06:11.250 --> 00:06:13.240
  • sort of--I'm learning
  • 00:06:13.240 --> 00:06:15.110
  • this thing.
  • 00:06:15.110 --> 00:06:16.220
  • You think, "Finally."
  • 00:06:16.220 --> 00:06:17.190
  • But anyway, yeah.
  • 00:06:17.190 --> 00:06:20.030
  • I'm learning that if you just
  • 00:06:20.030 --> 00:06:22.260
  • do what God says,
  • 00:06:22.260 --> 00:06:23.210
  • it's amazing how it works.
  • 00:06:24.080 --> 00:06:27.080
  • Because you got to remember
  • 00:06:27.080 --> 00:06:28.180
  • it's God that said it.
  • 00:06:28.180 --> 00:06:31.070
  • And if we're not careful, we can
  • 00:06:31.080 --> 00:06:34.080
  • forget that the whatever it is
  • 00:06:34.240 --> 00:06:37.240
  • that he's saying that we--
  • 00:06:37.240 --> 00:06:40.240
  • his commands, his principles,
  • 00:06:40.240 --> 00:06:43.160
  • his precepts.
  • 00:06:43.160 --> 00:06:45.080
  • The doctrines, doctrines just
  • 00:06:45.080 --> 00:06:47.250
  • simply meaning the things that
  • 00:06:47.250 --> 00:06:49.080
  • you believe and the principles
  • 00:06:49.080 --> 00:06:51.070
  • that you build on.
  • 00:06:51.070 --> 00:06:53.190
  • Because if we're not careful,
  • 00:06:53.190 --> 00:06:55.120
  • we can move away from forgetting
  • 00:06:55.120 --> 00:06:58.050
  • how God worked, all right?
  • 00:06:59.040 --> 00:07:02.060
  • We can stop obeying
  • 00:07:02.060 --> 00:07:05.000
  • what he says.
  • 00:07:05.000 --> 00:07:06.130
  • And if we're not careful,
  • 00:07:06.130 --> 00:07:08.000
  • we will find ourselves creating
  • 00:07:08.000 --> 00:07:09.190
  • a new doctrine in our head,
  • 00:07:09.190 --> 00:07:12.020
  • which is a new way of thinking
  • 00:07:12.020 --> 00:07:13.160
  • about things, a new way,
  • 00:07:13.160 --> 00:07:16.010
  • a new principles or whatever to
  • 00:07:16.010 --> 00:07:18.000
  • justify the current circumstance
  • 00:07:18.200 --> 00:07:21.200
  • that we're in because it's
  • 00:07:21.200 --> 00:07:23.140
  • no longer a God story,
  • 00:07:23.140 --> 00:07:24.280
  • look what God's doing.
  • 00:07:24.280 --> 00:07:26.120
  • It's more of a my story, look
  • 00:07:26.120 --> 00:07:27.100
  • where I'm stuck.
  • 00:07:27.100 --> 00:07:30.080
  • And now, I need to justify it.
  • 00:07:30.080 --> 00:07:32.060
  • And now, I need to qualify
  • 00:07:32.110 --> 00:07:35.110
  • why I'm here.
  • 00:07:35.110 --> 00:07:37.010
  • And if we're not careful,
  • 00:07:37.010 --> 00:07:38.040
  • we create a whole new doctrine,
  • 00:07:38.190 --> 00:07:41.190
  • and we miss
  • 00:07:41.190 --> 00:07:43.210
  • - Gary: "Two thousand years ago
  • 00:07:48.010 --> 00:07:49.050
  • a guy called Jesus, and
  • 00:07:49.050 --> 00:07:50.240
  • you're telling me he was God in
  • 00:07:50.240 --> 00:07:52.040
  • human form, died on a cross and
  • 00:07:52.040 --> 00:07:54.000
  • rose again, and that single act
  • 00:07:54.000 --> 00:07:56.100
  • is going to fix everything?"
  • 00:07:56.100 --> 00:07:58.000
  • "Yeah."
  • 00:07:58.000 --> 00:07:58.250
  • [music]
  • 00:08:00.260 --> 00:08:02.260
  • - Gary: Our challenge, I think
  • 00:08:04.230 --> 00:08:07.230
  • the thing that is, is how do we
  • 00:08:09.010 --> 00:08:12.010
  • help a generation
  • 00:08:12.010 --> 00:08:15.000
  • set its hope anew on God?
  • 00:08:15.080 --> 00:08:18.080
  • Let's just take generation
  • 00:08:18.080 --> 00:08:20.050
  • firstly.
  • 00:08:20.050 --> 00:08:21.160
  • Generation, what does--
  • 00:08:21.160 --> 00:08:22.230
  • what does that mean?
  • 00:08:22.230 --> 00:08:23.290
  • Now, this--now, I know what it
  • 00:08:23.290 --> 00:08:26.020
  • means, but I ask the question
  • 00:08:26.020 --> 00:08:27.220
  • in how do we often view it or
  • 00:08:27.220 --> 00:08:30.120
  • how do we refer to it, right?
  • 00:08:30.120 --> 00:08:32.270
  • Lot of the time, we'll take
  • 00:08:32.270 --> 00:08:34.060
  • the term "generation,"
  • 00:08:34.060 --> 00:08:35.250
  • and we will use the term
  • 00:08:35.250 --> 00:08:37.180
  • "generation" in the context
  • 00:08:37.180 --> 00:08:39.260
  • of somebody's age.
  • 00:08:39.260 --> 00:08:41.140
  • You're of--most of you would
  • 00:08:41.140 --> 00:08:43.180
  • look at me--well, not most of
  • 00:08:43.180 --> 00:08:45.250
  • you, but anyway, a lot of you--
  • 00:08:45.250 --> 00:08:47.180
  • and go "Well, you're part of
  • 00:08:47.180 --> 00:08:48.290
  • the older generation."
  • 00:08:48.290 --> 00:08:50.150
  • Well, believe it or not,
  • 00:08:50.150 --> 00:08:51.100
  • there's people I look to
  • 00:08:51.100 --> 00:08:52.120
  • and say they're part of
  • 00:08:52.120 --> 00:08:53.060
  • the older generation, all right?
  • 00:08:53.060 --> 00:08:55.040
  • And so, I'm not so old, thanks.
  • 00:08:55.040 --> 00:08:57.000
  • And so, we can view it as
  • 00:08:58.250 --> 00:09:01.270
  • generation meaning the different
  • 00:09:01.270 --> 00:09:04.240
  • age brackets, or we can almost
  • 00:09:06.040 --> 00:09:09.040
  • view it as this generation
  • 00:09:09.040 --> 00:09:11.070
  • in its entirety and go
  • 00:09:11.070 --> 00:09:13.110
  • that everyone that's alive now,
  • 00:09:13.110 --> 00:09:15.150
  • let's call it this generation.
  • 00:09:15.150 --> 00:09:18.150
  • We could use that term almost
  • 00:09:18.150 --> 00:09:19.290
  • this age that we live in,
  • 00:09:19.290 --> 00:09:21.210
  • this time that we live in.
  • 00:09:21.210 --> 00:09:23.070
  • Now, I know sometimes the age is
  • 00:09:23.070 --> 00:09:24.210
  • an extended period of time, but
  • 00:09:24.210 --> 00:09:26.290
  • just this where we're at right
  • 00:09:26.290 --> 00:09:29.000
  • now, if we view that generation
  • 00:09:29.200 --> 00:09:32.200
  • and how do we help put a--
  • 00:09:32.210 --> 00:09:35.210
  • help a generation put its hope?
  • 00:09:36.240 --> 00:09:39.240
  • Have it help see God and see
  • 00:09:40.190 --> 00:09:43.190
  • him, and the way they see him
  • 00:09:43.190 --> 00:09:46.150
  • cause them to put an expectation
  • 00:09:46.150 --> 00:09:48.290
  • in the what, the what he can do,
  • 00:09:49.140 --> 00:09:52.140
  • and what's he capable of.
  • 00:09:55.230 --> 00:09:58.230
  • You know, I'm amazed that if
  • 00:09:58.230 --> 00:10:00.000
  • you--you know, when you--you
  • 00:10:00.000 --> 00:10:02.180
  • know, when you talk to people,
  • 00:10:02.180 --> 00:10:04.250
  • not just--not just Instagram.
  • 00:10:05.250 --> 00:10:08.250
  • You know, like not just--not
  • 00:10:08.250 --> 00:10:11.200
  • just text, you know, messenger.
  • 00:10:12.090 --> 00:10:15.090
  • I've noticed some people, that's
  • 00:10:15.090 --> 00:10:17.070
  • how they talk to you, like
  • 00:10:17.070 --> 00:10:18.030
  • they're sending a text to you,
  • 00:10:18.030 --> 00:10:19.080
  • but it's just live, all right?
  • 00:10:19.080 --> 00:10:22.010
  • So, I'm talking about when you
  • 00:10:22.010 --> 00:10:23.270
  • talk to somebody, and you engage
  • 00:10:24.170 --> 00:10:27.170
  • each other, and you start
  • 00:10:27.170 --> 00:10:28.290
  • talking about things, it's
  • 00:10:28.290 --> 00:10:30.070
  • amazing how many people, if you
  • 00:10:30.070 --> 00:10:32.200
  • start talking about the world in
  • 00:10:32.200 --> 00:10:34.080
  • which we live in, the time, and
  • 00:10:34.080 --> 00:10:35.210
  • suddenly people just jump into
  • 00:10:35.220 --> 00:10:38.220
  • freak out mode, like this is
  • 00:10:38.220 --> 00:10:40.140
  • just a--this is just some,
  • 00:10:40.140 --> 00:10:42.070
  • "What's going on?
  • 00:10:42.070 --> 00:10:43.110
  • There's something not right with
  • 00:10:43.110 --> 00:10:44.200
  • the world that we live in."
  • 00:10:44.200 --> 00:10:46.200
  • And you start asking questions.
  • 00:10:46.200 --> 00:10:48.020
  • And you know, "What do you think
  • 00:10:48.020 --> 00:10:49.120
  • the answer is?"
  • 00:10:49.120 --> 00:10:50.140
  • And I love asking leading
  • 00:10:50.140 --> 00:10:51.290
  • questions when you start talking
  • 00:10:51.290 --> 00:10:53.190
  • like that because the more
  • 00:10:53.190 --> 00:10:55.030
  • leading questions you ask,
  • 00:10:55.030 --> 00:10:56.200
  • sometimes the more stupid
  • 00:10:56.200 --> 00:10:58.010
  • the concept becomes
  • 00:10:58.010 --> 00:10:59.190
  • as the answer.
  • 00:10:59.190 --> 00:11:01.110
  • And it's just like, "Well,
  • 00:11:01.110 --> 00:11:03.110
  • I don't know what it is."
  • 00:11:03.110 --> 00:11:04.030
  • And we freak out about things
  • 00:11:04.030 --> 00:11:05.270
  • like climate change
  • 00:11:05.270 --> 00:11:07.120
  • and all this sort of thing.
  • 00:11:07.120 --> 00:11:08.150
  • They're all important issues,
  • 00:11:08.150 --> 00:11:09.220
  • but the freaking out thing
  • 00:11:09.220 --> 00:11:11.230
  • is where a lot of people
  • 00:11:11.230 --> 00:11:13.020
  • find themselves.
  • 00:11:13.020 --> 00:11:14.260
  • And you know, the funny thing is
  • 00:11:14.260 --> 00:11:17.070
  • that in the gospel,
  • 00:11:17.070 --> 00:11:18.200
  • when we talk about the gospel
  • 00:11:18.200 --> 00:11:20.150
  • of Jesus Christ, and being able
  • 00:11:20.150 --> 00:11:22.150
  • to communicate the gospel,
  • 00:11:22.150 --> 00:11:24.040
  • the gospel meaning
  • 00:11:24.040 --> 00:11:25.200
  • the good news,
  • 00:11:25.200 --> 00:11:27.050
  • the good news God did something
  • 00:11:27.050 --> 00:11:29.140
  • in Jesus Christ.
  • 00:11:29.140 --> 00:11:31.000
  • I still don't quite get,
  • 00:11:31.000 --> 00:11:33.130
  • why did he have to die again?
  • 00:11:33.130 --> 00:11:35.180
  • Couldn't there be--and we can
  • 00:11:35.180 --> 00:11:38.000
  • get into our head, start
  • 00:11:38.000 --> 00:11:39.210
  • asking those sorts of questions.
  • 00:11:39.210 --> 00:11:41.040
  • "All right, give me this.
  • 00:11:41.040 --> 00:11:42.020
  • So what do you mean,
  • 00:11:42.020 --> 00:11:42.230
  • so 2.000 years ago,
  • 00:11:42.230 --> 00:11:44.090
  • a guy called Jesus, and you're
  • 00:11:44.090 --> 00:11:46.170
  • telling me he was God in human
  • 00:11:46.170 --> 00:11:47.210
  • form, died on a cross and rose
  • 00:11:47.210 --> 00:11:49.150
  • again, and that single act
  • 00:11:49.150 --> 00:11:51.200
  • is going to fix everything?"
  • 00:11:51.200 --> 00:11:53.120
  • "Yeah."
  • 00:11:53.120 --> 00:11:54.200
  • "Oh, that's whacked."
  • 00:11:54.200 --> 00:11:56.110
  • Well, you put your faith
  • 00:11:56.110 --> 00:11:57.270
  • in that.
  • 00:11:57.270 --> 00:11:58.270
  • You make a decision to believe
  • 00:11:58.270 --> 00:11:59.220
  • that to be true.
  • 00:11:59.220 --> 00:12:01.170
  • You believe,
  • 00:12:01.170 --> 00:12:02.180
  • you make a decision.
  • 00:12:02.180 --> 00:12:03.200
  • You cross that line, and
  • 00:12:03.200 --> 00:12:04.280
  • suddenly you go, "You know what?
  • 00:12:04.280 --> 00:12:06.200
  • It's real.
  • 00:12:06.200 --> 00:12:08.090
  • It's true."
  • 00:12:08.090 --> 00:12:09.140
  • "Well, explain it."
  • 00:12:09.140 --> 00:12:10.120
  • "I don't know, I don't know.
  • 00:12:10.120 --> 00:12:12.110
  • It's just it is.
  • 00:12:12.110 --> 00:12:14.030
  • My eyes have turned on.
  • 00:12:14.030 --> 00:12:15.150
  • I can see."
  • 00:12:15.150 --> 00:12:17.020
  • "What can you see?"
  • 00:12:17.020 --> 00:12:18.130
  • "I don't know.
  • 00:12:18.130 --> 00:12:21.080
  • I'm different."
  • 00:12:21.080 --> 00:12:22.050
  • "What do you mean
  • 00:12:22.050 --> 00:12:22.230
  • you different?"
  • 00:12:22.230 --> 00:12:23.140
  • "Just I feel all fixed
  • 00:12:23.140 --> 00:12:24.200
  • on the inside.
  • 00:12:24.200 --> 00:12:26.040
  • Not all of it, but most of it.
  • 00:12:26.040 --> 00:12:28.230
  • Well, some of it."
  • 00:12:28.230 --> 00:12:31.190
  • There's this--and it's because
  • 00:12:31.190 --> 00:12:34.070
  • the gospel is the good news.
  • 00:12:34.070 --> 00:12:36.110
  • There was something that--
  • 00:12:36.110 --> 00:12:38.010
  • something that God did that put
  • 00:12:38.010 --> 00:12:40.040
  • something right from the past.
  • 00:12:40.270 --> 00:12:43.270
  • There was something
  • 00:12:43.270 --> 00:12:44.240
  • that happened in the past.
  • 00:12:44.240 --> 00:12:46.170
  • And this event now
  • 00:12:46.170 --> 00:12:49.070
  • sorted that out.
  • 00:12:49.070 --> 00:12:50.200
  • Which again, you get back and
  • 00:12:50.200 --> 00:12:52.040
  • if you read your Bible, you get
  • 00:12:52.040 --> 00:12:52.280
  • back into Genesis and you
  • 00:12:52.280 --> 00:12:53.290
  • realize in Genesis, you realize
  • 00:12:53.290 --> 00:12:55.120
  • why, "Oh, there's a mess."
  • 00:12:55.150 --> 00:12:58.150
  • But then you got this
  • 00:12:58.150 --> 00:13:00.030
  • intervention of God that
  • 00:13:00.030 --> 00:13:01.200
  • completely shapes what tomorrow
  • 00:13:01.200 --> 00:13:04.100
  • looks like in a completely
  • 00:13:04.100 --> 00:13:07.040
  • different perspective.
  • 00:13:07.040 --> 00:13:08.260
  • When you're just looking and,
  • 00:13:08.260 --> 00:13:09.260
  • "Hey, everything's a mess.
  • 00:13:09.260 --> 00:13:10.260
  • I don't know
  • 00:13:10.260 --> 00:13:11.160
  • where this is going."
  • 00:13:11.160 --> 00:13:12.090
  • No, no, there's good news.
  • 00:13:12.090 --> 00:13:13.220
  • God intervened, he did something
  • 00:13:13.220 --> 00:13:16.070
  • that sorted out what caused
  • 00:13:16.070 --> 00:13:18.100
  • the problem, and so now tomorrow
  • 00:13:18.100 --> 00:13:20.140
  • is completely different.
  • 00:13:20.140 --> 00:13:21.190
  • And he also, there's--
  • 00:13:21.190 --> 00:13:23.000
  • impacts the now.
  • 00:13:23.050 --> 00:13:26.050
  • You think, "Well, what do you
  • 00:13:26.050 --> 00:13:27.060
  • mean by impacts the now?"
  • 00:13:27.060 --> 00:13:29.210
  • And you know, you start talking
  • 00:13:29.210 --> 00:13:30.210
  • to people, and you go,
  • 00:13:30.210 --> 00:13:33.080
  • "How are you?"
  • 00:13:33.080 --> 00:13:34.170
  • "Oh, I'm good, good.
  • 00:13:34.170 --> 00:13:37.150
  • I'm good."
  • 00:13:37.150 --> 00:13:40.060
  • And then you ask the question
  • 00:13:40.100 --> 00:13:43.100
  • again, "Oh, well, you know."
  • 00:13:43.100 --> 00:13:45.240
  • And then you go, "Okay,
  • 00:13:45.240 --> 00:13:46.250
  • I'm going to probe a bit more.
  • 00:13:46.250 --> 00:13:48.170
  • How are you really?"
  • 00:13:48.170 --> 00:13:49.160
  • "Well."
  • 00:13:49.160 --> 00:13:52.090
  • "Do you want to talk
  • 00:13:52.090 --> 00:13:53.040
  • about that?"
  • 00:13:53.040 --> 00:13:54.050
  • "Yeah."
  • 00:13:54.050 --> 00:13:56.210
  • "I thought you were good?"
  • 00:13:56.210 --> 00:13:57.270
  • "No."
  • 00:13:57.270 --> 00:13:59.230
  • And you think,
  • 00:13:59.230 --> 00:14:00.150
  • "Well, what do you mean?
  • 00:14:00.150 --> 00:14:01.200
  • What's not right?"
  • 00:14:01.200 --> 00:14:02.140
  • "I don't know."
  • 00:14:02.140 --> 00:14:04.240
  • "Explain to me,
  • 00:14:04.240 --> 00:14:06.010
  • what do you feel?"
  • 00:14:06.010 --> 00:14:07.080
  • And you sort of get in the convo
  • 00:14:07.080 --> 00:14:08.180
  • and it's like, "I don't know,
  • 00:14:08.180 --> 00:14:10.200
  • I just--I just don't feel like--
  • 00:14:10.200 --> 00:14:13.060
  • there's just something not
  • 00:14:13.060 --> 00:14:14.130
  • right in me."
  • 00:14:14.130 --> 00:14:16.000
  • And you think, "Well,
  • 00:14:16.000 --> 00:14:17.030
  • that's an odd thing.
  • 00:14:17.030 --> 00:14:17.240
  • Okay, so let's go to this."
  • 00:14:17.240 --> 00:14:19.060
  • So, why do we have this thing
  • 00:14:19.060 --> 00:14:21.020
  • called the pursuit of happiness?
  • 00:14:21.090 --> 00:14:24.090
  • Why is it I just want
  • 00:14:24.090 --> 00:14:26.080
  • to be happy?
  • 00:14:26.080 --> 00:14:27.180
  • Oh, because we're not.
  • 00:14:29.250 --> 00:14:32.250
  • What's the--that's an odd
  • 00:14:32.250 --> 00:14:34.160
  • feeling, that's an odd thing.
  • 00:14:34.260 --> 00:14:37.260
  • We're discontent with something,
  • 00:14:37.260 --> 00:14:39.090
  • but what are we
  • 00:14:39.090 --> 00:14:39.250
  • discontented with?
  • 00:14:39.250 --> 00:14:41.160
  • "I don't know.
  • 00:14:41.270 --> 00:14:44.270
  • I'd just like to be at peace."
  • 00:14:45.130 --> 00:14:48.130
  • Peace, brother.
  • 00:14:48.130 --> 00:14:50.110
  • Like, "What do you mean you
  • 00:14:52.160 --> 00:14:55.160
  • just want to be at peace?"
  • 00:14:55.160 --> 00:14:57.120
  • "Oh."
  • 00:14:57.120 --> 00:14:58.210
  • "Come on, tell me."
  • 00:14:58.210 --> 00:15:00.120
  • "Oh, I don't really--
  • 00:15:00.120 --> 00:15:02.110
  • I can't put it into words."
  • 00:15:02.110 --> 00:15:03.240
  • "Yeah, it's like there's
  • 00:15:03.240 --> 00:15:05.090
  • something wrong."
  • 00:15:05.090 --> 00:15:06.200
  • "Yeah."
  • 00:15:06.200 --> 00:15:07.200
  • And Jesus comes in,
  • 00:15:07.280 --> 00:15:10.280
  • and he steps into our humanity.
  • 00:15:10.280 --> 00:15:13.200
  • And he goes, "Let's just--
  • 00:15:13.200 --> 00:15:15.240
  • let's just put a few things
  • 00:15:15.240 --> 00:15:18.000
  • back into right place.
  • 00:15:18.110 --> 00:15:21.110
  • Let's start putting
  • 00:15:21.110 --> 00:15:22.040
  • a few things in order."
  • 00:15:22.040 --> 00:15:24.120
  • And then suddenly it's like
  • 00:15:24.120 --> 00:15:25.110
  • you talk to someone,
  • 00:15:25.110 --> 00:15:26.240
  • especially you talk to someone
  • 00:15:26.240 --> 00:15:27.180
  • who's just met Jesus,
  • 00:15:27.180 --> 00:15:28.190
  • "How are you...?"
  • 00:15:30.000 --> 00:15:33.000
  • You go, "Why?"
  • 00:15:33.000 --> 00:15:34.170
  • "I don't know.
  • 00:15:34.170 --> 00:15:36.000
  • I just don't know.
  • 00:15:36.000 --> 00:15:37.090
  • I feel all clean on the inside.
  • 00:15:37.090 --> 00:15:39.150
  • I just--I feel different."
  • 00:15:39.150 --> 00:15:41.030
  • Why?
  • 00:15:41.030 --> 00:15:41.270
  • Because that sense
  • 00:15:41.270 --> 00:15:43.240
  • of everything's just seems like
  • 00:15:43.240 --> 00:15:45.130
  • something's wrong has suddenly
  • 00:15:45.130 --> 00:15:46.290
  • become just sort of seems
  • 00:15:46.290 --> 00:15:49.170
  • like everything's right.
  • 00:15:49.170 --> 00:15:51.160
  • 'Cause that's what--
  • 00:15:51.160 --> 00:15:52.290
  • that's what he does.
  • 00:15:52.290 --> 00:15:54.290
  • He just comes and he just puts
  • 00:15:54.290 --> 00:15:57.270
  • it--he just puts it right.
  • 00:15:58.250 --> 00:16:01.270
  • And we get all concerned about
  • 00:16:01.270 --> 00:16:03.280
  • all sorts of things.
  • 00:16:03.280 --> 00:16:05.000
  • And you know, what are we known
  • 00:16:05.000 --> 00:16:06.250
  • for when it comes to
  • 00:16:06.250 --> 00:16:07.220
  • Christianity?
  • 00:16:07.220 --> 00:16:10.010
  • What's the thing that often,
  • 00:16:10.010 --> 00:16:13.000
  • you know, you find people,
  • 00:16:13.000 --> 00:16:14.010
  • I hear because people talk.
  • 00:16:14.010 --> 00:16:15.150
  • Because all right, they talk,
  • 00:16:15.150 --> 00:16:17.230
  • not just text, right?
  • 00:16:17.230 --> 00:16:19.260
  • And I don't read e-mails,
  • 00:16:19.260 --> 00:16:21.130
  • so I don't know what's going
  • 00:16:21.130 --> 00:16:22.100
  • on with that.
  • 00:16:22.100 --> 00:16:22.290
  • But so, and you hear people go,
  • 00:16:23.240 --> 00:16:26.240
  • "You know, if we're not careful,
  • 00:16:26.240 --> 00:16:28.210
  • this is what this generation
  • 00:16:28.210 --> 00:16:30.290
  • thinks a Christian is.
  • 00:16:30.290 --> 00:16:32.260
  • If we're not careful,
  • 00:16:32.260 --> 00:16:33.290
  • this generation has judged
  • 00:16:33.290 --> 00:16:35.120
  • what Christianity is based on
  • 00:16:35.120 --> 00:16:37.020
  • - Gary: Though all the stuff
  • 00:16:40.220 --> 00:16:41.270
  • that's wrong with us as human
  • 00:16:41.270 --> 00:16:43.090
  • beings, it says Jesus
  • 00:16:43.090 --> 00:16:44.290
  • is the firstborn in the line
  • 00:16:44.290 --> 00:16:47.040
  • of a new humanity.
  • 00:16:47.150 --> 00:16:50.150
  • And the gospel is about
  • 00:16:50.150 --> 00:16:52.160
  • God coming in
  • 00:16:52.160 --> 00:16:54.050
  • and fixing all of this.
  • 00:16:54.050 --> 00:16:55.250
  • And he gives us a reference
  • 00:16:55.250 --> 00:16:57.100
  • point to base it all on,
  • 00:16:57.100 --> 00:16:59.010
  • and that's what he did in Jesus
  • 00:16:59.010 --> 00:17:00.220
  • so that when we come to Jesus,
  • 00:17:00.220 --> 00:17:02.200
  • we get to participate
  • 00:17:02.200 --> 00:17:04.130
  • in this whole new thing that
  • 00:17:04.130 --> 00:17:06.150
  • [music]
  • 00:17:08.140 --> 00:17:10.140
  • - Gary: My Bible tells me,
  • 00:17:11.210 --> 00:17:14.210
  • "You know what the problem
  • 00:17:14.210 --> 00:17:15.190
  • with the earth?"
  • 00:17:15.190 --> 00:17:16.090
  • Yeah, I know there's a problem,
  • 00:17:16.090 --> 00:17:17.090
  • I know where it started.
  • 00:17:17.090 --> 00:17:18.120
  • But you know what
  • 00:17:18.120 --> 00:17:19.020
  • the good news is?
  • 00:17:19.020 --> 00:17:19.240
  • There's going to be a new earth
  • 00:17:19.240 --> 00:17:20.160
  • one day.
  • 00:17:20.160 --> 00:17:21.150
  • How is there a new earth?
  • 00:17:21.150 --> 00:17:23.010
  • The same way there's
  • 00:17:23.010 --> 00:17:23.250
  • a first earth.
  • 00:17:23.250 --> 00:17:24.140
  • God said, "Let there be,"
  • 00:17:24.140 --> 00:17:26.050
  • and there was.
  • 00:17:26.050 --> 00:17:27.070
  • And one day, there's going to be
  • 00:17:27.070 --> 00:17:28.090
  • this all fixed up.
  • 00:17:28.090 --> 00:17:29.090
  • And how's he going to do it?
  • 00:17:29.090 --> 00:17:30.130
  • Because he's God.
  • 00:17:30.260 --> 00:17:33.260
  • He even says there's going to
  • 00:17:33.260 --> 00:17:34.270
  • be a new heaven.
  • 00:17:34.270 --> 00:17:35.200
  • I'm still trying to get my head
  • 00:17:35.200 --> 00:17:36.170
  • around why there needs to be
  • 00:17:36.170 --> 00:17:37.210
  • a new heaven, but anyway, says
  • 00:17:37.210 --> 00:17:38.260
  • a new heaven, a new earth.
  • 00:17:38.260 --> 00:17:40.130
  • It actually says that there's
  • 00:17:40.130 --> 00:17:41.230
  • a new creation.
  • 00:17:41.230 --> 00:17:42.160
  • So, all the stuff that's wrong
  • 00:17:42.160 --> 00:17:44.040
  • with us as human beings, it
  • 00:17:44.040 --> 00:17:45.160
  • says, "Jesus is the firstborn
  • 00:17:45.160 --> 00:17:47.260
  • in the line of a new humanity."
  • 00:17:49.220 --> 00:17:52.220
  • And the gospel is about God
  • 00:17:52.220 --> 00:17:54.160
  • coming in and fixing
  • 00:17:54.160 --> 00:17:56.130
  • all of this, and it gives us
  • 00:17:56.130 --> 00:17:58.080
  • a reference point
  • 00:17:58.080 --> 00:17:59.230
  • to base it all on.
  • 00:17:59.230 --> 00:18:01.020
  • And that's what he did in Jesus
  • 00:18:01.020 --> 00:18:02.160
  • so that when we come to Jesus,
  • 00:18:02.160 --> 00:18:04.190
  • we get to participate in this
  • 00:18:04.190 --> 00:18:06.170
  • whole new thing that God
  • 00:18:06.170 --> 00:18:08.230
  • is trying to bring about.
  • 00:18:08.230 --> 00:18:10.090
  • And the trying thing is he knows
  • 00:18:10.150 --> 00:18:13.150
  • he's going to do it, he's just
  • 00:18:13.150 --> 00:18:15.010
  • trying to get as many people as
  • 00:18:15.010 --> 00:18:17.080
  • possible involved in this new
  • 00:18:17.080 --> 00:18:20.030
  • thing that he wants to bring in.
  • 00:18:20.170 --> 00:18:23.170
  • And part of our job is, how do
  • 00:18:24.030 --> 00:18:27.030
  • we shape people's perception
  • 00:18:27.060 --> 00:18:30.060
  • of God?
  • 00:18:30.060 --> 00:18:33.040
  • And when was the last time you
  • 00:18:33.040 --> 00:18:36.010
  • got accused of being stupid
  • 00:18:36.010 --> 00:18:37.150
  • because you believe God was
  • 00:18:37.150 --> 00:18:38.200
  • going to bring in a new earth?
  • 00:18:38.200 --> 00:18:41.100
  • Well, never.
  • 00:18:41.100 --> 00:18:42.220
  • You got accused of being bigoted
  • 00:18:42.220 --> 00:18:43.280
  • because you believed something
  • 00:18:43.280 --> 00:18:44.280
  • about this.
  • 00:18:44.280 --> 00:18:46.120
  • Come on, can we shape
  • 00:18:46.120 --> 00:18:48.200
  • a generation's perspective
  • 00:18:48.200 --> 00:18:51.010
  • on whom God is?
  • 00:18:51.010 --> 00:18:52.280
  • I could pose lots of questions
  • 00:18:52.280 --> 00:18:54.200
  • and lots of challenges, I'm just
  • 00:18:54.200 --> 00:18:55.260
  • trying to--trying to give that
  • 00:18:55.260 --> 00:18:57.250
  • as an answer.
  • 00:18:57.250 --> 00:18:59.190
  • Now, the time in history that we
  • 00:18:59.190 --> 00:19:02.100
  • currently are part of, I think
  • 00:19:02.100 --> 00:19:04.060
  • it's important to understand.
  • 00:19:04.060 --> 00:19:05.240
  • See, we're in a time where
  • 00:19:05.240 --> 00:19:07.090
  • there is an emerging generation
  • 00:19:07.090 --> 00:19:08.220
  • of influence coming through.
  • 00:19:08.220 --> 00:19:11.040
  • If you're aged between
  • 00:19:11.040 --> 00:19:13.120
  • the ages of 16 and 36,
  • 00:19:13.120 --> 00:19:16.010
  • you would be classified as part
  • 00:19:16.010 --> 00:19:17.230
  • of the millennial generation.
  • 00:19:17.230 --> 00:19:19.290
  • And that millennial generation
  • 00:19:20.160 --> 00:19:23.160
  • is in 10--if you add 10 years to
  • 00:19:23.270 --> 00:19:26.270
  • that millennial generation,
  • 00:19:26.270 --> 00:19:28.170
  • in 10 years time,
  • 00:19:28.170 --> 00:19:30.260
  • millennial people,
  • 00:19:30.260 --> 00:19:32.110
  • this emerging generation
  • 00:19:32.110 --> 00:19:34.020
  • that's coming through in
  • 00:19:34.020 --> 00:19:36.020
  • the current time in which we
  • 00:19:36.020 --> 00:19:38.000
  • live or the generation in which
  • 00:19:38.000 --> 00:19:39.020
  • we live in are going to be--
  • 00:19:39.020 --> 00:19:41.020
  • world leaders are going to be
  • 00:19:41.020 --> 00:19:42.230
  • from this millennial generation.
  • 00:19:43.010 --> 00:19:46.010
  • Country leaders are going to be
  • 00:19:46.010 --> 00:19:48.260
  • from this generation.
  • 00:19:48.260 --> 00:19:51.100
  • Business leaders are going to be
  • 00:19:51.100 --> 00:19:53.070
  • from there.
  • 00:19:53.070 --> 00:19:55.190
  • Some of the--some of the people
  • 00:19:55.190 --> 00:19:57.100
  • who influence society, who bring
  • 00:19:59.250 --> 00:20:02.250
  • in ideas and concepts, and all
  • 00:20:02.250 --> 00:20:05.080
  • those sorts of things that shape
  • 00:20:05.080 --> 00:20:06.260
  • the culture that you and I live
  • 00:20:06.260 --> 00:20:08.180
  • in, this emerging millennial
  • 00:20:08.180 --> 00:20:11.030
  • generation will be the people
  • 00:20:11.030 --> 00:20:13.070
  • that aren't emerging
  • 00:20:13.070 --> 00:20:14.210
  • in influence, they will be
  • 00:20:14.210 --> 00:20:16.070
  • the people who are
  • 00:20:16.070 --> 00:20:17.120
  • the primary influences.
  • 00:20:17.120 --> 00:20:19.170
  • Now, that's not excluding
  • 00:20:19.170 --> 00:20:20.210
  • the what's termed
  • 00:20:20.210 --> 00:20:22.250
  • as baby boomers.
  • 00:20:22.250 --> 00:20:23.180
  • You know, 10 years time,
  • 00:20:23.180 --> 00:20:24.280
  • half the baby boomers will be
  • 00:20:24.280 --> 00:20:25.240
  • in heaven, so it's like
  • 00:20:25.240 --> 00:20:26.220
  • they'll have checked out, right?
  • 00:20:26.220 --> 00:20:29.000
  • But, Gen X,
  • 00:20:29.000 --> 00:20:31.280
  • it's not excluding those.
  • 00:20:31.280 --> 00:20:34.030
  • It's just saying that there
  • 00:20:34.030 --> 00:20:35.170
  • is this generation emerging that
  • 00:20:35.170 --> 00:20:37.210
  • I believe that we had got
  • 00:20:37.210 --> 00:20:39.130
  • a chance, and we ought to
  • 00:20:39.130 --> 00:20:41.130
  • set our goal.
  • 00:20:41.130 --> 00:20:43.130
  • Be aspirational enough to say,
  • 00:20:43.130 --> 00:20:45.080
  • "Come on, can we shape
  • 00:20:45.080 --> 00:20:46.170
  • this generation,
  • 00:20:46.170 --> 00:20:49.010
  • that it might be able
  • 00:20:49.010 --> 00:20:49.230
  • to set its hope anew on God?"
  • 00:20:49.230 --> 00:20:51.080
  • Because see, when it sets its
  • 00:20:51.080 --> 00:20:52.250
  • hopes anew on God, its focus and
  • 00:20:53.140 --> 00:20:56.140
  • its expectation on what God
  • 00:20:56.140 --> 00:20:59.000
  • can do, and if I can say this,
  • 00:20:59.000 --> 00:21:00.270
  • can only be good, but let's
  • 00:21:00.270 --> 00:21:02.080
  • be careful.
  • 00:21:02.080 --> 00:21:03.130
  • If we're not careful,
  • 00:21:03.130 --> 00:21:04.090
  • the expectations can be so low
  • 00:21:04.090 --> 00:21:07.030
  • that we can miss what God
  • 00:21:07.030 --> 00:21:09.250
  • could possibly do.
  • 00:21:09.250 --> 00:21:11.200
  • You hear me, yeah?
  • 00:21:11.200 --> 00:21:13.250
  • So, I would say that's our task.
  • 00:21:15.080 --> 00:21:18.080
  • And so, for us as a church,
  • 00:21:18.170 --> 00:21:21.170
  • it's what sort of church
  • 00:21:21.170 --> 00:21:22.290
  • do we need to be, all right?
  • 00:21:22.290 --> 00:21:25.280
  • Now, when I say what kind
  • 00:21:25.280 --> 00:21:27.000
  • of church do we need to be,
  • 00:21:27.000 --> 00:21:28.130
  • I'm speaking about
  • 00:21:28.130 --> 00:21:29.140
  • let's speak aspiration ally.
  • 00:21:29.140 --> 00:21:31.150
  • Maybe let's be careful of
  • 00:21:32.110 --> 00:21:35.110
  • being too ideal about it.
  • 00:21:35.110 --> 00:21:38.020
  • I'm the type of person that
  • 00:21:38.020 --> 00:21:39.260
  • I have to temper my ideals.
  • 00:21:39.260 --> 00:21:42.050
  • I'm very idealistic, and
  • 00:21:42.050 --> 00:21:44.100
  • I've learnt to try and allow
  • 00:21:44.100 --> 00:21:45.160
  • my ideals to inspire me and
  • 00:21:46.220 --> 00:21:49.220
  • motivate me, but not discourage
  • 00:21:49.220 --> 00:21:51.120
  • me and destroy me.
  • 00:21:51.120 --> 00:21:53.100
  • I sort of try and take
  • 00:21:53.100 --> 00:21:55.010
  • the philosophy:
  • 00:21:55.010 --> 00:21:55.260
  • Let's try and hit Mars,
  • 00:21:55.260 --> 00:21:56.250
  • and if we hit the moon,
  • 00:21:56.250 --> 00:21:57.240
  • it's a pretty good effort.
  • 00:21:57.240 --> 00:21:59.180
  • Do you get what I'm saying,
  • 00:21:59.180 --> 00:22:01.110
  • right?
  • 00:22:01.110 --> 00:22:02.000
  • So, as a church,
  • 00:22:02.000 --> 00:22:03.230
  • can we aspire to something?
  • 00:22:03.230 --> 00:22:06.090
  • Now, you got to remember this.
  • 00:22:06.090 --> 00:22:08.030
  • As a church, the who we are is
  • 00:22:08.030 --> 00:22:10.120
  • the sum total of all the people
  • 00:22:10.120 --> 00:22:12.030
  • who are a part of it.
  • 00:22:12.030 --> 00:22:13.290
  • Who we are as a church, well,
  • 00:22:13.290 --> 00:22:15.030
  • it's not like the institution
  • 00:22:15.030 --> 00:22:16.120
  • of the church and here's
  • 00:22:16.120 --> 00:22:18.030
  • its corporate statement,
  • 00:22:18.030 --> 00:22:19.180
  • that's who we are.
  • 00:22:19.180 --> 00:22:20.230
  • No, who we are
  • 00:22:20.230 --> 00:22:22.030
  • is not who we say we are.
  • 00:22:22.030 --> 00:22:23.220
  • Who we are is who we are.
  • 00:22:23.220 --> 00:22:26.010
  • Do you--right?
  • 00:22:26.010 --> 00:22:28.250
  • So, in other words, what I'm
  • 00:22:28.250 --> 00:22:30.040
  • trying to say is that when we're
  • 00:22:30.040 --> 00:22:31.140
  • talking about who we--who could
  • 00:22:31.140 --> 00:22:33.100
  • we be, what sort of church
  • 00:22:33.100 --> 00:22:34.240
  • can we be, we're talking about
  • 00:22:34.240 --> 00:22:35.280
  • who we can be as people.
  • 00:22:37.190 --> 00:22:40.190
  • And depending on how many people
  • 00:22:41.160 --> 00:22:44.160
  • brace things determines--or
  • 00:22:44.160 --> 00:22:46.200
  • embrace things determines what
  • 00:22:46.200 --> 00:22:48.140
  • we actually become, all right?
  • 00:22:48.200 --> 00:22:51.200
  • So, I started to,
  • 00:22:51.200 --> 00:22:53.100
  • you know, think about this.
  • 00:22:53.100 --> 00:22:54.280
  • And you know, about 25 years
  • 00:22:55.200 --> 00:22:58.200
  • ago, something like that, maybe
  • 00:22:58.200 --> 00:23:00.060
  • longer, Brian penned a paper,
  • 00:23:00.060 --> 00:23:03.030
  • he just wrote a thing called
  • 00:23:03.030 --> 00:23:05.180
  • "The Church I See."
  • 00:23:05.220 --> 00:23:08.220
  • And which,
  • 00:23:08.220 --> 00:23:11.060
  • when it was first written,
  • 00:23:11.060 --> 00:23:12.230
  • I can remember when I first--
  • 00:23:12.230 --> 00:23:14.060
  • it was first written,
  • 00:23:14.060 --> 00:23:14.290
  • put on wall in the Hub in
  • 00:23:14.290 --> 00:23:16.220
  • Castle Hill in Australia.
  • 00:23:16.220 --> 00:23:18.040
  • You sit there and you go, "Wow."
  • 00:23:18.040 --> 00:23:20.210
  • I was like, "Wow."
  • 00:23:20.210 --> 00:23:23.040
  • But you know,
  • 00:23:23.040 --> 00:23:24.000
  • up until about 3 years ago
  • 00:23:24.000 --> 00:23:26.020
  • 'cause he had to write a new one
  • 00:23:26.020 --> 00:23:27.040
  • because we had accomplished
  • 00:23:27.040 --> 00:23:29.140
  • everything that he had aspired
  • 00:23:29.180 --> 00:23:32.180
  • that we might become
  • 00:23:32.180 --> 00:23:34.100
  • as a church,
  • 00:23:34.100 --> 00:23:36.150
  • and wrote this thing now called
  • 00:23:36.150 --> 00:23:38.080
  • "The Church I Now See."
  • 00:23:38.080 --> 00:23:40.010
  • In other words,
  • 00:23:40.010 --> 00:23:41.180
  • what is the possibilities that
  • 00:23:41.180 --> 00:23:44.030
  • lie in the future before us?
  • 00:23:44.060 --> 00:23:47.060
  • What could--what could happen?
  • 00:23:47.060 --> 00:23:49.050
  • And even over the last 3 years,
  • 00:23:49.050 --> 00:23:50.040
  • it's amazing, some of those
  • 00:23:50.040 --> 00:23:51.070
  • things already starting to
  • 00:23:51.070 --> 00:23:53.000
  • become a part of who we are
  • 00:23:53.180 --> 00:23:56.180
  • and what God is doing
  • 00:23:56.180 --> 00:23:58.250
  • with us as a church.
  • 00:23:58.250 --> 00:24:01.100
  • But then I started to think from
  • 00:24:01.100 --> 00:24:02.120
  • this perspective.
  • 00:24:02.120 --> 00:24:03.170
  • You know, how do we--how do you
  • 00:24:05.200 --> 00:24:08.200
  • just condense it down?
  • 00:24:08.200 --> 00:24:10.120
  • So, put it all together, what
  • 00:24:10.120 --> 00:24:11.290
  • is the result of that,
  • 00:24:11.290 --> 00:24:14.030
  • thinking about it from a global
  • 00:24:14.030 --> 00:24:16.030
  • perspective, thinking about
  • 00:24:16.030 --> 00:24:17.230
  • - Gary: The challenge is,
  • 00:24:20.200 --> 00:24:22.050
  • can we as every single person in
  • 00:24:22.180 --> 00:24:25.180
  • our church say, "You know what?
  • 00:24:25.180 --> 00:24:28.140
  • No matter where I am, no matter
  • 00:24:28.140 --> 00:24:31.130
  • what I'm doing, no matter what
  • 00:24:31.130 --> 00:24:33.140
  • the business place where I find
  • 00:24:34.160 --> 00:24:37.160
  • myself, where I'm at currently
  • 00:24:37.160 --> 00:24:39.180
  • in life, whether it be good,
  • 00:24:39.180 --> 00:24:42.020
  • whether it be bad, I'm going to
  • 00:24:42.020 --> 00:24:43.250
  • [music]
  • 00:24:45.290 --> 00:24:47.290
  • - Gary: Okay, so what
  • 00:24:48.280 --> 00:24:51.280
  • are we trying to be?
  • 00:24:51.280 --> 00:24:53.130
  • And this is what I wrote down
  • 00:24:53.130 --> 00:24:55.210
  • when I was just thinking
  • 00:24:55.210 --> 00:24:56.250
  • about it.
  • 00:24:56.250 --> 00:24:57.180
  • I said, "What we--how about if
  • 00:24:57.180 --> 00:24:59.150
  • we set our goal is we want to be
  • 00:24:59.150 --> 00:25:01.230
  • a world class church?"
  • 00:25:01.230 --> 00:25:04.190
  • That's what we want to be,
  • 00:25:04.190 --> 00:25:06.000
  • we want to be world class.
  • 00:25:06.000 --> 00:25:08.060
  • I think we should be able to say
  • 00:25:08.060 --> 00:25:09.140
  • we're trying to be a church
  • 00:25:09.140 --> 00:25:11.100
  • where we can be in any city,
  • 00:25:12.120 --> 00:25:15.120
  • we can be in any town,
  • 00:25:16.010 --> 00:25:19.010
  • and we can be in any village,
  • 00:25:19.010 --> 00:25:21.130
  • and we can make a difference.
  • 00:25:21.130 --> 00:25:24.060
  • We are the sum total of
  • 00:25:25.010 --> 00:25:28.010
  • who we--of each of us as
  • 00:25:28.010 --> 00:25:30.000
  • individuals.
  • 00:25:30.000 --> 00:25:30.210
  • So the challenge is, can we as
  • 00:25:30.210 --> 00:25:32.210
  • every single person in our
  • 00:25:32.210 --> 00:25:35.140
  • church say, "You know what?
  • 00:25:35.140 --> 00:25:38.050
  • No matter where I am, no matter
  • 00:25:38.050 --> 00:25:41.050
  • what I'm doing, no matter what
  • 00:25:41.050 --> 00:25:43.050
  • the business place where I find
  • 00:25:44.050 --> 00:25:47.050
  • myself, where I'm at currently
  • 00:25:47.050 --> 00:25:49.020
  • in life, whether it be good,
  • 00:25:49.070 --> 00:25:52.070
  • whether it be bad, I'm going to
  • 00:25:52.070 --> 00:25:53.210
  • determine to make a difference.
  • 00:25:53.210 --> 00:25:56.190
  • I'm going to make a difference
  • 00:25:56.190 --> 00:25:58.180
  • in my workplace.
  • 00:25:58.180 --> 00:26:00.290
  • I'm going to make a difference
  • 00:26:00.290 --> 00:26:03.020
  • at home, at university,
  • 00:26:03.060 --> 00:26:06.060
  • in business.
  • 00:26:06.060 --> 00:26:07.180
  • Whatever it might be, I'm just
  • 00:26:07.180 --> 00:26:09.130
  • going to make a difference"?
  • 00:26:09.130 --> 00:26:10.190
  • That makes--that fits into
  • 00:26:10.190 --> 00:26:13.080
  • the fact that we can be a world
  • 00:26:13.080 --> 00:26:15.050
  • class church because what
  • 00:26:15.050 --> 00:26:16.190
  • I'm saying is just we just
  • 00:26:16.190 --> 00:26:18.070
  • want to make a difference.
  • 00:26:18.070 --> 00:26:19.130
  • I'm not saying--
  • 00:26:19.130 --> 00:26:20.100
  • it's not an ego trip.
  • 00:26:20.100 --> 00:26:21.150
  • I'm not saying we want to be
  • 00:26:21.150 --> 00:26:22.070
  • the best.
  • 00:26:22.070 --> 00:26:23.180
  • I'm not saying that we think
  • 00:26:23.180 --> 00:26:25.010
  • we're the best.
  • 00:26:25.010 --> 00:26:26.230
  • I'm not saying anything
  • 00:26:26.230 --> 00:26:27.140
  • like that.
  • 00:26:27.140 --> 00:26:28.020
  • I'm just saying whatever--
  • 00:26:28.020 --> 00:26:29.140
  • wherever we find ourselves,
  • 00:26:29.140 --> 00:26:31.260
  • can we make a difference
  • 00:26:32.060 --> 00:26:35.060
  • in the what we're involved in?
  • 00:26:35.060 --> 00:26:38.050
  • Can we make a difference?
  • 00:26:38.050 --> 00:26:39.270
  • Can we--can we set that?
  • 00:26:39.270 --> 00:26:42.130
  • And I think if we can set that
  • 00:26:42.130 --> 00:26:43.220
  • as a--you don't call it as
  • 00:26:43.220 --> 00:26:45.290
  • a goal or aspiration, or however
  • 00:26:46.180 --> 00:26:49.180
  • you want to put that,
  • 00:26:49.180 --> 00:26:51.270
  • then just maybe as a church,
  • 00:26:51.270 --> 00:26:54.060
  • that's who we are.
  • 00:26:54.060 --> 00:26:56.180
  • And the reason we are that
  • 00:26:56.180 --> 00:26:58.090
  • is because you are that.
  • 00:26:58.090 --> 00:27:00.090
  • And we are the sum total
  • 00:27:00.280 --> 00:27:03.280
  • - Gary: Hey, thanks for
  • 00:27:07.290 --> 00:27:09.080
  • joining us today, and I hope
  • 00:27:09.080 --> 00:27:10.250
  • you enjoyed being with us.
  • 00:27:10.250 --> 00:27:12.060
  • And at Hillsong Church,
  • 00:27:12.060 --> 00:27:13.220
  • we're not going to hold
  • 00:27:13.220 --> 00:27:14.210
  • your past against you.
  • 00:27:14.210 --> 00:27:15.210
  • We're going to our absolute
  • 00:27:15.210 --> 00:27:16.250
  • best, as best as we can, to
  • 00:27:16.250 --> 00:27:18.270
  • support you in your present,
  • 00:27:18.270 --> 00:27:20.120
  • and going to hold your future up
  • 00:27:20.120 --> 00:27:22.020
  • in front of you and say,
  • 00:27:22.020 --> 00:27:23.030
  • "Go for it."
  • 00:27:23.030 --> 00:27:24.070
  • And I always want to remind you
  • 00:27:24.070 --> 00:27:25.100
  • of this one thing.
  • 00:27:25.100 --> 00:27:26.140
  • You know what?
  • 00:27:26.140 --> 00:27:27.030
  • You've got a story to tell,
  • 00:27:27.030 --> 00:27:28.030
  • it's your story,
  • 00:27:28.030 --> 00:27:29.070
  • but your story matters to God.
  • 00:27:29.070 --> 00:27:31.110
  • In fact, it matters so much
  • 00:27:31.110 --> 00:27:32.270
  • that he thought
  • 00:27:32.270 --> 00:27:34.000
  • it was worth dying for.
  • 00:27:34.000 --> 00:27:34.240
  • And so, I want to encourage you
  • 00:27:34.240 --> 00:27:35.260
  • as you get to know him, as his
  • 00:27:35.260 --> 00:27:37.130
  • life and your life intertwine
  • 00:27:37.130 --> 00:27:39.170
  • together, and as you experience
  • 00:27:39.170 --> 00:27:41.050
  • the power of life
  • 00:27:41.050 --> 00:27:42.120
  • that comes through his name,
  • 00:27:42.120 --> 00:27:43.200
  • the name of Jesus Christ,
  • 00:27:43.200 --> 00:27:45.010
  • I pray that your life is going
  • 00:27:45.010 --> 00:27:46.110
  • - female: Being a part of
  • 00:27:50.080 --> 00:27:51.120
  • the millennials myself,
  • 00:27:51.120 --> 00:27:52.200
  • I feel it's important
  • 00:27:52.200 --> 00:27:54.030
  • to actually go out, make
  • 00:27:54.030 --> 00:27:55.150
  • a difference like Gary said, and
  • 00:27:55.150 --> 00:27:57.160
  • be able to be in any country.
  • 00:27:57.160 --> 00:27:59.110
  • And being that I'm just starting
  • 00:27:59.110 --> 00:28:00.260
  • in the UK, going in, actually
  • 00:28:00.260 --> 00:28:02.220
  • taking part in church, and
  • 00:28:02.220 --> 00:28:04.280
  • volunteering, and doing whatever
  • 00:28:04.280 --> 00:28:06.270
  • I can to make a difference.
  • 00:28:06.270 --> 00:28:08.020
  • - male: As a member of
  • 00:28:08.020 --> 00:28:08.290
  • a generation that is going to be
  • 00:28:08.290 --> 00:28:10.080
  • truly leading the world in a few
  • 00:28:10.080 --> 00:28:12.070
  • years, playing our part is--
  • 00:28:12.070 --> 00:28:15.070
  • the biggest thing is
  • 00:28:15.070 --> 00:28:16.060
  • to take an active role,
  • 00:28:16.060 --> 00:28:17.110
  • whether that be in the church,
  • 00:28:17.110 --> 00:28:18.180
  • in our government, in our world.
  • 00:28:18.180 --> 00:28:21.020
  • And stepping up, like Gary said,
  • 00:28:21.020 --> 00:28:23.210
  • just kind of truly take part,
  • 00:28:23.210 --> 00:28:25.230
  • become part of the family,
  • 00:28:25.230 --> 00:28:26.230
  • become part of the community,
  • 00:28:26.230 --> 00:28:27.280
  • and take a leading role.
  • 00:28:27.280 --> 00:28:29.280
  • - female: A world class church,
  • 00:28:29.280 --> 00:28:30.290
  • like Gary said, is being
  • 00:28:30.290 --> 00:28:32.060
  • a world class person,
  • 00:28:32.060 --> 00:28:32.290
  • which is 100% true.
  • 00:28:32.290 --> 00:28:34.160
  • And it all starts with us
  • 00:28:34.160 --> 00:28:35.150
  • in being personally accountable,
  • 00:28:35.150 --> 00:28:37.010
  • and being able to go out and
  • 00:28:37.010 --> 00:28:38.150
  • spread the Word, and taking
  • 00:28:38.150 --> 00:28:40.040
  • what God has for our lives and
  • 00:28:40.040 --> 00:28:42.080
  • his purpose, and being able
  • 00:28:42.080 --> 00:28:43.210
  • to apply that to real world.
  • 00:28:43.210 --> 00:28:45.000
  • - male: To be a world class
  • 00:28:45.000 --> 00:28:45.280
  • church really means to--it means
  • 00:28:45.280 --> 00:28:47.240
  • to be more than yourself.
  • 00:28:47.240 --> 00:28:49.220
  • It means to be willing to step
  • 00:28:49.220 --> 00:28:51.090
  • into any role, any function
  • 00:28:51.090 --> 00:28:52.270
  • that needs to be filled,
  • 00:28:52.270 --> 00:28:54.000
  • any job that needs to be done.
  • 00:28:54.000 --> 00:28:55.200
  • It's about stepping away from,
  • 00:28:55.200 --> 00:28:57.280
  • "This is what I want,
  • 00:28:57.280 --> 00:28:59.040
  • this is what I need."
  • 00:28:59.040 --> 00:29:00.090
  • And it's about stepping into,
  • 00:29:00.090 --> 00:29:01.250
  • "This is what the church needs.
  • 00:29:01.250 --> 00:29:03.190
  • This is what I can give to God."
  • 00:29:03.190 --> 00:29:05.210
  • - male: I live in a little
  • 00:29:05.210 --> 00:29:06.080
  • country village, and there's
  • 00:29:06.080 --> 00:29:08.150
  • cows for my neighbors and
  • 00:29:08.150 --> 00:29:09.260
  • farmers and people like that.
  • 00:29:09.260 --> 00:29:11.170
  • But even there,
  • 00:29:11.170 --> 00:29:12.130
  • I could become world class.
  • 00:29:12.130 --> 00:29:14.020
  • - male: To be a world class
  • 00:29:14.020 --> 00:29:14.260
  • church, again, like Gary
  • 00:29:14.260 --> 00:29:16.200
  • was saying, you know,
  • 00:29:16.200 --> 00:29:17.280
  • you have to be excellent.
  • 00:29:17.280 --> 00:29:19.130
  • I think we all have
  • 00:29:19.130 --> 00:29:20.210
  • the potential to be excellent,
  • 00:29:20.210 --> 00:29:22.160
  • and we have to be
  • 00:29:22.160 --> 00:29:23.070
  • an excellent church.
  • 00:29:23.070 --> 00:29:24.160
  • And I think we are a world class
  • 00:29:24.160 --> 00:29:27.060
  • church already because we have
  • 00:29:27.060 --> 00:29:29.060
  • a global network,
  • 00:29:29.060 --> 00:29:30.170
  • and we're influencing the world.
  • 00:29:30.170 --> 00:29:31.290
  • We're making inroads in
  • 00:29:31.290 --> 00:29:33.080
  • this city, in this country,
  • 00:29:33.080 --> 00:29:34.240
  • and in other countries.
  • 00:29:34.240 --> 00:29:36.060
  • And I suppose that comes from
  • 00:29:36.060 --> 00:29:38.270
  • staying true to the Word,
  • 00:29:39.190 --> 00:29:42.190
  • keeping our faith in God,
  • 00:29:42.190 --> 00:29:44.100
  • in Jesus.
  • 00:29:44.100 --> 00:29:45.040
  • The love and the goodness
  • 00:29:45.040 --> 00:29:46.060
  • will flow from that.
  • 00:29:46.060 --> 00:29:47.210
  • So, just trying to be the best
  • 00:29:47.210 --> 00:29:49.110
  • we can be.
  • 00:29:49.110 --> 00:29:50.080
  • - male: The Word of God is a
  • 00:29:50.080 --> 00:29:51.110
  • good thing to really read 'cause
  • 00:29:51.110 --> 00:29:53.180
  • its relevance is timeless, and
  • 00:29:53.180 --> 00:29:55.180
  • its message never changes.
  • 00:29:55.180 --> 00:29:57.240
  • And we're living in a very
  • 00:29:57.240 --> 00:29:58.290
  • shallow, futile world, and at
  • 00:29:58.290 --> 00:30:00.240
  • times I have been very worldly.
  • 00:30:00.240 --> 00:30:02.120
  • So, even this morning, I felt
  • 00:30:02.120 --> 00:30:04.220
  • this freshness that,
  • 00:30:04.220 --> 00:30:06.100
  • "Jesus, I want to live for you.
  • 00:30:06.100 --> 00:30:07.240
  • I want to live your way."
  • 00:30:07.240 --> 00:30:09.210
  • - female: The way that I
  • 00:30:09.210 --> 00:30:10.140
  • behave, the way that we behave
  • 00:30:10.140 --> 00:30:11.040
  • as a church is dictated by
  • 00:30:11.040 --> 00:30:12.160
  • other things, that we stick to
  • 00:30:12.160 --> 00:30:14.080
  • what God's called us to, and
  • 00:30:14.080 --> 00:30:16.190
  • that we make an impact wherever
  • 00:30:16.190 --> 00:30:18.090
  • we are in whatever sphere that
  • 00:30:18.090 --> 00:30:20.040
  • might be.
  • 00:30:20.040 --> 00:30:21.000
  • - female: I think what
  • 00:30:21.000 --> 00:30:22.130
  • Pastor Gary said about being in
  • 00:30:22.130 --> 00:30:23.180
  • any place, in any country, in
  • 00:30:23.180 --> 00:30:25.100
  • any city, and still being able
  • 00:30:25.100 --> 00:30:27.070
  • to make a difference is what
  • 00:30:27.070 --> 00:30:28.200
  • makes you a world class church.
  • 00:30:28.200 --> 00:30:29.240
  • And being a church for everyone,
  • 00:30:29.240 --> 00:30:31.150
  • not just being a church for
  • 00:30:31.150 --> 00:30:32.290
  • Christians, or for pastors,
  • 00:30:32.290 --> 00:30:34.220
  • or for men, or being a church
  • 00:30:34.220 --> 00:30:35.210
  • for every single person.
  • 00:30:35.210 --> 00:30:36.280
  • When the Bible says,
  • 00:30:36.280 --> 00:30:38.050
  • "Come as you are,"
  • 00:30:38.050 --> 00:30:38.250
  • that's literally what it is.
  • 00:30:38.250 --> 00:30:40.230
  • It's embracing everyone, and
  • 00:30:40.230 --> 00:30:42.020
  • reminding them that everyone
  • 00:30:42.020 --> 00:30:43.010
  • is deserving of God's love.
  • 00:30:43.010 --> 00:30:44.060
  • And I think making sure that as
  • 00:30:44.060 --> 00:30:45.240
  • a church, that you embody that
  • 00:30:45.240 --> 00:30:47.030
  • and you show that people is
  • 00:30:47.030 --> 00:30:48.010
  • really important, and that's
  • 00:30:48.010 --> 00:30:49.000
  • How wonderful
  • 00:30:52.290 --> 00:30:55.290
  • how glorious
  • 00:30:56.260 --> 00:30:59.260
  • my Savior's scars
  • 00:31:01.070 --> 00:31:04.070
  • victorious
  • 00:31:05.050 --> 00:31:08.050

  • I don't know your current
  • 00:31:42.030 --> 00:31:43.090
  • circumstances.
  • 00:31:43.090 --> 00:31:44.160
  • I may never have the opportunity
  • 00:31:44.160 --> 00:31:46.100
  • to meet with you in person.
  • 00:31:46.100 --> 00:31:47.280
  • But what I do know and can
  • 00:31:47.280 --> 00:31:49.110
  • tell you today with the utmost
  • 00:31:49.110 --> 00:31:50.210
  • confidence is that Jesus
  • 00:31:50.210 --> 00:31:52.160
  • loves you.
  • 00:31:52.160 --> 00:31:53.140
  • Savior of the world, the maker
  • 00:31:53.140 --> 00:31:55.090
  • of heaven and earth knows you,

  • loves you, and desires
  • 00:31:57.070 --> 00:31:58.230
  • relationship with you.
  • 00:31:58.230 --> 00:32:00.180
  • Here at Hillsong Church,
  • 00:32:00.180 --> 00:32:01.250
  • we believe that the Bible
  • 00:32:01.250 --> 00:32:03.120
  • is the inspired Word of God,
  • 00:32:03.120 --> 00:32:05.020
  • that it is as relevant today
  • 00:32:05.020 --> 00:32:07.120
  • as the day that it was written.
  • 00:32:08.070 --> 00:32:11.070
  • The very nature of the gospel
  • 00:32:11.070 --> 00:32:13.260
  • is inclusive.
  • 00:32:13.260 --> 00:32:15.080
  • Everyone, you and me, we're
  • 00:32:15.080 --> 00:32:16.270
  • invited into the story of grace,
  • 00:32:16.270 --> 00:32:19.090
  • invited to a life filled
  • 00:32:19.090 --> 00:32:20.140
  • with passion, and purpose,
  • 00:32:20.140 --> 00:32:22.050
  • and perspective, and peace.
  • 00:32:22.050 --> 00:32:23.290
  • We believe in a God who designed
  • 00:32:23.290 --> 00:32:26.020
  • you, and made for a personal
  • 00:32:26.020 --> 00:32:27.190
  • relationship with him
  • 00:32:27.190 --> 00:32:29.080
  • and healthy relationships
  • 00:32:29.080 --> 00:32:30.120
  • with each other.
  • 00:32:30.120 --> 00:32:31.210
  • Too many people misconceive God.
  • 00:32:31.210 --> 00:32:34.050
  • They believe he's wanting
  • 00:32:34.050 --> 00:32:35.130
  • to judge and punish them.
  • 00:32:35.130 --> 00:32:37.070
  • Yet, Jesus said that he didn't
  • 00:32:37.070 --> 00:32:38.250
  • come to condemn the world,
  • 00:32:38.250 --> 00:32:40.120
  • but to save it.
  • 00:32:40.120 --> 00:32:42.020
  • The Bible tells us that while
  • 00:32:42.020 --> 00:32:43.170
  • we were still sinners,
  • 00:32:43.170 --> 00:32:44.260
  • Christ died for us.
  • 00:32:44.260 --> 00:32:46.150
  • He died in our place so that
  • 00:32:46.150 --> 00:32:48.080
  • we could have the full,
  • 00:32:48.080 --> 00:32:49.160
  • abundant life that he promises.
  • 00:32:49.160 --> 00:32:51.190
  • Through that death on the cross
  • 00:32:51.190 --> 00:32:53.240
  • and the power of his grace,
  • 00:32:53.240 --> 00:32:55.240
  • God can turn around the most
  • 00:32:55.240 --> 00:32:57.000
  • devastating sin or failure
  • 00:32:57.000 --> 00:32:58.260
  • in our lives.
  • 00:32:58.260 --> 00:33:01.260
  • What is it that you need today?
  • 00:33:01.260 --> 00:33:03.290
  • Perhaps it's peace or joy,
  • 00:33:03.290 --> 00:33:05.200
  • maybe it's simply relationship,
  • 00:33:05.200 --> 00:33:07.210
  • comfort, or wisdom.
  • 00:33:07.210 --> 00:33:09.080
  • His grace provides an answer to
  • 00:33:09.080 --> 00:33:11.030
  • every problem, a way through any
  • 00:33:11.030 --> 00:33:13.080
  • obstacle, and enabling power
  • 00:33:13.080 --> 00:33:15.070
  • to do what we can't do
  • 00:33:15.070 --> 00:33:16.150
  • in our own power.
  • 00:33:16.150 --> 00:33:17.270
  • When we live out of the free,
  • 00:33:17.270 --> 00:33:19.080
  • the unmerited favor of God,
  • 00:33:19.080 --> 00:33:21.090
  • we discover his grace
  • 00:33:21.090 --> 00:33:22.220
  • is all-encompassing
  • 00:33:22.220 --> 00:33:23.280
  • and all-sufficient.
  • 00:33:23.280 --> 00:33:25.180
  • Can I encourage you today?
  • 00:33:25.180 --> 00:33:27.010
  • If you don't know this Jesus
  • 00:33:27.010 --> 00:33:28.180
  • that I'm talking about, consider
  • 00:33:28.180 --> 00:33:30.080
  • giving your life to him.
  • 00:33:30.080 --> 00:33:31.290
  • It is my heart's desire that you
  • 00:33:31.290 --> 00:33:33.220
  • would make the decision today to
  • 00:33:33.220 --> 00:33:35.200
  • allow the work of Jesus to take
  • 00:33:35.200 --> 00:33:37.140
  • effect in your life, to bring
  • 00:33:37.140 --> 00:33:39.140
  • forgiveness, restore you
  • 00:33:39.140 --> 00:33:41.220
  • to full relationship with God.
  • 00:33:41.220 --> 00:33:43.250
  • Jesus said, "I am the way,
  • 00:33:43.250 --> 00:33:45.250
  • the truth, and the life.
  • 00:33:45.250 --> 00:33:47.250
  • Everyone who calls on the name
  • 00:33:47.250 --> 00:33:49.200
  • of the Lord will be saved."
  • 00:33:51.290 --> 00:33:54.290
  • God already knows you.
  • 00:33:54.290 --> 00:33:56.190
  • Now, he wants to be known by
  • 00:33:56.190 --> 00:33:57.240
  • you.
  • 00:33:57.240 --> 00:33:58.260
  • It's as simple as this.
  • 00:33:58.260 --> 00:34:01.010
  • Ask him to be the Lord
  • 00:34:01.010 --> 00:34:02.010
  • of your life.
  • 00:34:02.010 --> 00:34:03.030
  • Confess that, like all of us,
  • 00:34:03.030 --> 00:34:05.090
  • you've sinned.
  • 00:34:05.090 --> 00:34:06.090
  • And ask him to wash you clean
  • 00:34:06.090 --> 00:34:08.080
  • and help you to walk with him.
  • 00:34:08.080 --> 00:34:10.010
  • I believe he'll do exactly
  • 00:34:10.010 --> 00:34:11.170
  • what you ask.
  • 00:34:11.170 --> 00:34:12.230
  • And that even now, you can
  • 00:34:12.230 --> 00:34:14.140
  • be free, cleansed and blameless
  • 00:34:14.140 --> 00:34:16.170
  • in his sight.
  • 00:34:16.170 --> 00:34:18.020
  • And if you're in a vibrant and
  • 00:34:18.020 --> 00:34:19.130
  • personal relationship with God
  • 00:34:19.130 --> 00:34:21.080
  • already, my prayer is that you
  • 00:34:21.080 --> 00:34:23.070
  • too would discover more of who
  • 00:34:23.070 --> 00:34:25.120

  • his Word, and surround yourself
  • 00:34:30.290 --> 00:34:32.210
  • with other believers who can
