  • - BEN COURSON: DID YOU KNOW THE BIBLE SAYS THAT JESUS IS THE
  • 00:00:06.030 --> 00:00:08.270
  • PHOTOGRAPH OF GOD?
  • 00:00:09.000 --> 00:00:11.020
  • WHEN PAUL WRITES THAT JESUS IS THE IMAGE OF GOD,
  • 00:00:11.050 --> 00:00:14.030
  • THAT WORD IS "EIKON".
  • 00:00:14.060 --> 00:00:15.180
  • WHICH MEANS PHOTOGRAPH.
  • 00:00:15.210 --> 00:00:18.030
  • NO WONDER THE SKY WENT DARK WHEN JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED
  • 00:00:18.060 --> 00:00:21.020
  • BECAUSE IT WAS THERE IN THE DARKROOM OF GOLGOTHA THAT
  • 00:00:21.050 --> 00:00:25.150
  • JESUS DEVELOPED THE PICTURE OF A GOD WHO
  • 00:00:25.180 --> 00:00:28.280
  • LOVES US TO DEATH.
  • 00:00:29.010 --> 00:00:30.280
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:00:31.010 --> 00:00:36.200
  • - FACE YOUR FEARS WITH THE GOD WHO MADE THE UNIVERSE...
  • 00:00:36.230 --> 00:00:42.030
  • BECAUSE WHEN YOU DON'T WALK WHAT GOD, NEGATIVES DEVELOP
  • 00:00:43.210 --> 00:00:47.050
  • IN THE DARKROOM OF FEAR.
  • 00:00:47.080 --> 00:00:50.140
  • BUT WHEN YOU DO WALK WITH GOD...
  • 00:00:50.170 --> 00:00:52.180
  • LIFE IS LIKE PHOTOGRAPHY.
  • 00:00:54.140 --> 00:00:56.120
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:00:56.150 --> 00:00:59.290
  • WE DEVELOP FROM THE NEGATIVES.
  • 00:01:00.040 --> 00:01:02.120
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:01:02.150 --> 00:01:59.290
  • - WHEN YOU'RE REALLY PERFECTING YOUR CRAFT, THESE
  • 00:02:00.040 --> 00:02:02.120
  • ARE NOT NEW PRINCIPLES, THEY'RE BIBLICAL NOTIONS.
  • 00:02:02.150 --> 00:02:05.080
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THE DILIGENT HAND LEADS TO PLENTY.
  • 00:02:05.110 --> 00:02:08.210
  • THE BIBLE SAYS HARD WORK MEANS PROSPERITY.
  • 00:02:08.240 --> 00:02:11.130
  • ONLY FOOLS IDLE AWAY THEIR TIME.
  • 00:02:11.160 --> 00:02:13.160
  • THE BIBLE SAYS WORK HARD AND BECOME A LEADER.
  • 00:02:13.190 --> 00:02:15.260
  • BE LAZY AND BECOME A SLAVE.
  • 00:02:15.290 --> 00:02:17.180
  • THE BIBLE SAYS WHATEVER YOU PUT YOUR HAND TO, DO IT WITH
  • 00:02:17.210 --> 00:02:20.030
  • ALL YOUR MIGHT.
  • 00:02:20.060 --> 00:02:21.180
  • THE BIBLE SAYS WHATEVER YOU DO, DO IT AS UNTO THE LORD.
  • 00:02:21.210 --> 00:02:25.180
  • THE BIBLE SAYS JESUS HAS DONE ALL THINGS WELL.
  • 00:02:25.210 --> 00:02:28.170
  • HE WAS EXCELLENT, WHETHER HE WAS A BLUE COLLAR CARPENTER
  • 00:02:28.200 --> 00:02:31.240
  • OR A WHITE COLLAR RABBI, EVERYTHING HE DID, THEY WERE
  • 00:02:31.270 --> 00:02:35.030
  • AMAZED AT THE GRACIOUS WORDS HE SPOKE BUT ALSO THAT HE
  • 00:02:35.060 --> 00:02:38.000
  • HAD JUST DONE ALL THINGS WELL.
  • 00:02:38.030 --> 00:02:41.010
  • - THIS EPISODE IS ENTITLED "WORK, WORK, WORK", AND
  • 00:02:42.280 --> 00:02:45.120
  • YOU'RE WATCHING HOPE GENERATION, AND I'M YOUR
  • 00:02:45.150 --> 00:02:47.100
  • HOST BEN COURSON.
  • 00:02:47.130 --> 00:02:49.000
  • DID YOU KNOW PAUL THE APOSTLE SAID HE HAD WORKED
  • 00:02:49.030 --> 00:02:51.060
  • HARDER THAN ALL THE OTHER DISCIPLES?
  • 00:02:51.090 --> 00:02:53.060
  • YET HE ADMITTED IT WASN'T BY HIS OWN VOLITION BUT BY
  • 00:02:53.090 --> 00:02:56.130
  • GOD'S PERMISSION.
  • 00:02:56.160 --> 00:02:58.050
  • HE UNDERSTOOD THAT WORK AND SUCCESS GO HAND-IN-HAND,
  • 00:02:58.080 --> 00:03:02.190
  • THAT SUCCESS ONLY COMES BEFORE WORK
  • 00:03:02.220 --> 00:03:04.250
  • IN THE DICTIONARY.
  • 00:03:04.280 --> 00:03:06.210
  • GOD HAS GIVEN YOU DREAMS FOR A REASON, BUT DON'T BE
  • 00:03:06.240 --> 00:03:09.020
  • SURPRISED IF HE ASKS YOU TO WORK FOR THEM.
  • 00:03:09.050 --> 00:03:11.290
  • - IF YOU'RE SEIZED BY A LONGING, DON'T WAIT FOR THE
  • 00:03:14.080 --> 00:03:16.140
  • OPPORTUNITY FOR THAT LONGING TO COME TO FRUITION.
  • 00:03:16.170 --> 00:03:19.130
  • YOU FOCUS ON YOUR ABILITY, AND I PROMISE YOU,
  • 00:03:19.160 --> 00:03:22.110
  • OPPORTUNITY WILL COME BECAUSE SUCCESS COMES TO
  • 00:03:22.140 --> 00:03:25.070
  • THOSE WHO ARE TOO BUSY TO BE LOOKING FOR IT.
  • 00:03:25.100 --> 00:03:28.230
  • SUCCESS COMES TO THOSE WHO ARE TOO BUSY TO
  • 00:03:28.260 --> 00:03:30.080
  • BE LOOKING FOR IT.
  • 00:03:30.110 --> 00:03:32.090
  • AND WHAT WE HAVE TO DO IS NOT SO MUCH SELL PEOPLE ON
  • 00:03:32.120 --> 00:03:36.280
  • WHO WE ARE RIGHT NOW BUT ON WHO WE'RE GOING TO BE.
  • 00:03:37.010 --> 00:03:40.040
  • WHEN JESUS WAS CALLING HIS DISCIPLES, I THINK THEY SAW
  • 00:03:40.070 --> 00:03:43.090
  • NOT ONLY WHO HE WAS BUT WHO HE WAS LIKE -- WHO HE REALLY
  • 00:03:43.120 --> 00:03:45.290
  • WAS THAT WAS GOING TO BE REVEALED AS
  • 00:03:46.020 --> 00:03:48.080
  • THE YEARS WENT ON.
  • 00:03:48.110 --> 00:03:50.250
  • AND I THINK WHAT GRAY PEOPLE SEE IS NOT YOUNG PEOPLE
  • 00:03:50.280 --> 00:03:54.020
  • WHERE THEY ARE RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:03:54.050 --> 00:03:56.290
  • THEY'RE NOT SOLD ON THESE PEOPLE REGARDING WHO THEY
  • 00:03:57.020 --> 00:04:00.150
  • ARE NOW BUT ON WHO THEY ARE GOING TO BE.
  • 00:04:00.180 --> 00:04:03.050
  • AND SO WHEN WE'RE TRYING TO INSPIRE PEOPLE TO HAVE HOPE,
  • 00:04:03.080 --> 00:04:06.000
  • OR WHEN WE'RE TRYING TO INSPIRE PEOPLE TO FOLLOW US
  • 00:04:06.030 --> 00:04:08.060
  • AS WE FOLLOW THE LORD, WE DON'T SELL PEOPLE ON WHO WE
  • 00:04:08.090 --> 00:04:10.140
  • ARE NOW BUT ON WHO WE'RE GOING TO BE.
  • 00:04:10.170 --> 00:04:12.050
  • NOW, HERE'S WHAT'S INTERESTING TO ME.
  • 00:04:12.080 --> 00:04:13.220
  • JESUS, WHEN HE CALLED SIMON "PETER" WHICH MEANS "ROCK",
  • 00:04:13.250 --> 00:04:19.070
  • HE CALLED HIM A ROCK LONG BEFORE HE WAS STABLE, AND
  • 00:04:19.100 --> 00:04:23.010
  • THE LORD DOESN'T JUST SEE WHO YOU ARE NOW.
  • 00:04:23.040 --> 00:04:25.060
  • HE SEES WHO YOU ARE GOING TO BECOME, AND IF YOU KNEW WHO
  • 00:04:25.090 --> 00:04:28.140
  • YOU WERE GOING TO BECOME, I BELIEVE IT WOULD GALVANIZE
  • 00:04:28.170 --> 00:04:31.240
  • YOU INTO WORKING A LOT HARDER ON YOUR STUFF TODAY.
  • 00:04:31.270 --> 00:04:35.090
  • SO WE'RE GOING TO LEARN THIS FROM THE LAST OF PAUL THE
  • 00:04:35.120 --> 00:04:38.060
  • APOSTLE, "HOW" WORK ETHIC HAS POWERFUL RAMIFICATIONS
  • 00:04:38.090 --> 00:04:41.150
  • WHEN WE WALK WITH, TALK TO, AND FOLLOW AFTER THE LORD.
  • 00:04:41.180 --> 00:04:43.220
  • THIS IS FROM THE LIFE OF PAUL, AND I WANT TO
  • 00:04:43.250 --> 00:04:45.180
  • ENCOURAGE YOU TO TAKE NOTES.
  • 00:04:45.210 --> 00:04:47.050
  • PLEASE TAKE NOTES.
  • 00:04:47.080 --> 00:04:48.250
  • IF YOU'RE NOT, IT'S OKAY, BUT KNOW THAT I'M JUDGING
  • 00:04:48.280 --> 00:04:51.030
  • YOU ON THE INSIDE.
  • 00:04:51.060 --> 00:04:52.220
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:04:52.250 --> 00:04:54.080
  • JOKING, OKAY.
  • 00:04:54.110 --> 00:04:55.240
  • NUMBER ONE, NOW, THESE SIX POINTS -- THESE FIVE POINTS
  • 00:04:55.270 --> 00:05:01.160
  • THAT I'M GOING TO POINT OUT TO YOU WERE GIFTED AS WAS
  • 00:05:01.190 --> 00:05:04.060
  • SOME OF THIS CONTENT I'VE SHARED TONIGHT FROM MY BEST
  • 00:05:04.090 --> 00:05:06.060
  • FRIEND HERE PETER UNGER.
  • 00:05:06.090 --> 00:05:07.250
  • AND HE, YOU, PETER, SHARED THIS WITH ME A FEW WEEKS
  • 00:05:07.280 --> 00:05:11.260
  • AGO, AND I'M LIKE, DUDE, THAT'S A SERMON.
  • 00:05:11.290 --> 00:05:14.230
  • SO HERE WE GO.
  • 00:05:14.260 --> 00:05:16.220
  • THIS IS FROM THE LIFE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE.
  • 00:05:16.250 --> 00:05:18.220
  • NUMBER ONE, BAD LEADERS ARE DESTROYED BY CRISIS.
  • 00:05:18.250 --> 00:05:22.210
  • GOOD LEADERS SURVIVE CRISIS, AND GREAT LEADERS
  • 00:05:22.240 --> 00:05:29.140
  • IMPROVE BY CRISIS. LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN.
  • 00:05:29.170 --> 00:05:33.260
  • BAD LEADERS ARE DESTROYED BY CRISIS.
  • 00:05:33.290 --> 00:05:38.000
  • GOOD LEADERS SURVIVE CRISIS, AND GREAT LEADERS IMPROVE BY
  • 00:05:38.030 --> 00:05:42.090
  • CRISIS.
  • 00:05:42.120 --> 00:05:44.130
  • THERE IS NO WINSTON CHURCHILL WITHOUT
  • 00:05:44.160 --> 00:05:46.110
  • WORLD WAR II.
  • 00:05:46.140 --> 00:05:48.100
  • THERE IS NO ABRAHAM LINCOLN WITHOUT THE CIVIL WAR.
  • 00:05:48.130 --> 00:05:52.280
  • THERE IS NO NELSON MANDELA WITHOUT APARTHEID.
  • 00:05:53.010 --> 00:05:56.280
  • THERE IS NO MLK MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. WITHOUT RACISM.
  • 00:05:57.010 --> 00:06:00.210
  • CRISIS IS ACTUALLY WHAT OCCASIONS GREAT LEADERS.
  • 00:06:00.240 --> 00:06:06.060
  • BAD LEADERS ARE DESTROYED BY CRISIS.
  • 00:06:06.090 --> 00:06:08.090
  • GOOD LEADERS SURVIVE CRISIS, BUT GREAT LEADERS
  • 00:06:08.120 --> 00:06:10.200
  • IMPROVE BY CRISIS. LOOK AT PAUL THE APOSTLE.
  • 00:06:10.230 --> 00:06:13.040
  • HIS LIFE WAS A CRISIS.
  • 00:06:13.070 --> 00:06:16.040
  • HE'S LIKE, I'M SUFFERING THIEVES AND ROBBERS
  • 00:06:16.070 --> 00:06:19.260
  • STEALING STUFF FROM ME. HE SAID, I'M SHIPWRECKED.
  • 00:06:19.290 --> 00:06:24.030
  • I ACTUALLY SPENT A DAY AND NIGHT LIKE A NAVY SEAL
  • 00:06:24.060 --> 00:06:26.210
  • DROWNING IN THE DEEPS.
  • 00:06:26.240 --> 00:06:28.270
  • HE SAID I'M IN PRISONS MORE FREQUENTLY THAN ANYBODY ELSE.
  • 00:06:29.000 --> 00:06:31.280
  • I'VE BEEN LASHED WITH WHIPS ABOVE MEASURE, NOT TO
  • 00:06:32.010 --> 00:06:36.090
  • MENTION ALL THE ANXIETY I SUFFER AS I'M STARTING
  • 00:06:36.120 --> 00:06:38.150
  • CHURCHES ALL AROUND EUROPE AND ASIA MINOR, AND I'M
  • 00:06:38.180 --> 00:06:42.000
  • WORRIED ABOUT "HOW" THEY'RE GOING BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE
  • 00:06:42.030 --> 00:06:44.040
  • CELL PHONES, AND I'M NOT SURE THEY'RE GOING GOOD.
  • 00:06:44.070 --> 00:06:47.030
  • PAUL THE APOSTLE, HIS LIFE WAS A CRISIS.
  • 00:06:47.060 --> 00:06:49.270
  • WHEN HE DELIVERED, ACCORDING TO ACTS, THAT SLAVE,
  • 00:06:50.000 --> 00:06:53.060
  • DEMON-POSSESSED, FORTUNE-TELLING, PRETENTIOUS
  • 00:06:53.090 --> 00:06:56.090
  • GIRL FROM HER UNCANNY, EERIE ABILITIES, THE ROMAN LYNCH
  • 00:06:56.120 --> 00:06:59.190
  • MOB ARRESTED PAUL BECAUSE THE GIRL'S OWNERS HAD THEIR
  • 00:06:59.220 --> 00:07:03.150
  • WALLETS GET A LOT LIGHTER BECAUSE SHE WASN'T FORTUNE
  • 00:07:03.180 --> 00:07:05.180
  • TELLING ANYMORE BECAUSE SHE WAS DELIVERED.
  • 00:07:05.210 --> 00:07:08.040
  • AND SO THE ROMAN LYNCH MOB, PLAYING ON THE ANTI-SEMITISM
  • 00:07:08.070 --> 00:07:10.190
  • OF THE CROWD, THREW PAUL AND SILAS INTO A DUNGEON.
  • 00:07:10.220 --> 00:07:13.070
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THEY LAID WHIPS ON
  • 00:07:13.100 --> 00:07:16.020
  • PAUL AND SILAS. PAUL WAS WHIPPED.
  • 00:07:16.050 --> 00:07:18.160
  • PAUL WAS WHIPPED, AND THE FIRST THING HE DOES
  • 00:07:18.190 --> 00:07:20.140
  • IS HE PRAYS.
  • 00:07:20.170 --> 00:07:21.250
  • HE DIDN'T SAY I'M GOING TO BUST THE WHIP AND
  • 00:07:21.280 --> 00:07:23.080
  • DO THE NAY NAY.
  • 00:07:23.110 --> 00:07:24.170
  • HE SAID, I JUST GOT WHIPPED, SO LET ME PRAY PRAY, COME ON!
  • 00:07:24.200 --> 00:07:27.050
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:07:27.080 --> 00:07:28.290
  • HE ACTUALLY IMPROVED BY CRISIS, AND THAT'S "HOW" GOD
  • 00:07:29.020 --> 00:07:31.260
  • HAS CALLED US TO LIVE.
  • 00:07:31.290 --> 00:07:33.050
  • WHEN THE WORST OF THE WORST HAPPENS, THE BEST OF THE
  • 00:07:33.080 --> 00:07:35.230
  • BEST COMES OUT OF US.
  • 00:07:35.260 --> 00:07:38.040
  • WHEN THE WORST OF THE WORST HAPPENS TO US, THE BEST OF
  • 00:07:38.070 --> 00:07:40.090
  • THE BEST COMES OUT OF US.
  • 00:07:40.120 --> 00:07:42.240
  • WE ACTUALLY THRIVE BY CRISIS.
  • 00:07:42.270 --> 00:07:44.290
  • THAT'S "HOW" GOD HAS CALLED US TO LIVE BECAUSE THE BIBLE
  • 00:07:45.020 --> 00:07:47.040
  • SAYS WHEN YOU ARE WEAK, THEN HE IS STRONG, AND YOU HAVE
  • 00:07:47.070 --> 00:07:49.260
  • TO DEPEND ON HIS GRACE TO BE WORKING THROUGH YOU.
  • 00:07:49.290 --> 00:07:54.220
  • WHEN YOUR NIGHT IS AT ITS DARKEST, THAT'S WHEN YOUR
  • 00:07:54.250 --> 00:07:57.140
  • PRAISE HAS TO BE AT ITS LOUDEST BECAUSE IT WAS AT
  • 00:07:57.170 --> 00:07:59.240
  • THE MIDNIGHT HOUR THAT PAUL AND SILAS BEGAN TO
  • 00:07:59.270 --> 00:08:02.120
  • PRAY AND PRAISE.
  • 00:08:02.150 --> 00:08:04.100
  • AND I'M FINDING THAT GOD TRULY IS JEHOVAH RAPHA,
  • 00:08:04.130 --> 00:08:08.080
  • THE GOD WHO HEALS.
  • 00:08:08.110 --> 00:08:10.160
  • HE HAS SHOWN ME "HOW" INCREDIBLY RESILIENT HE HAS
  • 00:08:10.190 --> 00:08:13.150
  • MADE THE HUMAN HEART, MORE THAN I EVER IMAGINED, AND I
  • 00:08:13.180 --> 00:08:16.030
  • KNOW THAT I'VE GONE THROUGH CRISIS, AND YOU'VE GONE
  • 00:08:16.060 --> 00:08:18.270
  • THROUGH CRISIS, AND NEWS FLASH, SPOILER ALERT, WE'RE
  • 00:08:19.000 --> 00:08:22.160
  • GOING TO GO THROUGH MORE CRISIS.
  • 00:08:22.190 --> 00:08:24.200
  • BUT THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS WE'RE GOING ALSO INTO A
  • 00:08:24.230 --> 00:08:27.070
  • FUTURE FILLED WITH HOPE.
  • 00:08:27.100 --> 00:08:29.040
  • WE'RE GOING ALSO INTO A BOLDER TOMORROW.
  • 00:08:29.070 --> 00:08:31.060
  • WE'RE GOING INTO A HORIZON WHERE WE LOSE SIGHT OF THE
  • 00:08:31.090 --> 00:08:35.050
  • SHORES BECAUSE FAITH IS SPELLED "RISK" AND WHEN WE
  • 00:08:35.080 --> 00:08:38.010
  • GO INTO THE FUTURE, WHEN WE GO INTO TOMORROW, THIS IS
  • 00:08:38.040 --> 00:08:41.120
  • WHAT WE KNOW: THAT OUR FUTURE IS FILLED WITH HOPE
  • 00:08:41.150 --> 00:08:44.220
  • BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS, "'I KNOW THE THOUGHTS I THINK
  • 00:08:44.250 --> 00:08:47.080
  • TOWARD YOU,' SAYS THE LORD, 'THOUGHTS TO PROSPER YOU AND
  • 00:08:47.110 --> 00:08:49.260
  • TO GIVE YOU AN EXPECTED END, TO GIVE YOU A FUTURE, AND TO
  • 00:08:49.290 --> 00:08:53.020
  • GIVE YOU A HOPE.'" THAT'S GOD'S WILL FOR YOU.
  • 00:08:53.050 --> 00:08:56.080
  • SO WE CAN ACTUALLY IMPROVE BY CRISIS.
  • 00:08:56.110 --> 00:08:58.210
  • WHEN THE WORST OF THE WORST HAPPENS TO US, THE BEST OF
  • 00:08:58.240 --> 00:09:01.040
  • THE BEST COMES OUT OF US BY THE GRACE OF GOD
  • 00:09:01.070 --> 00:09:03.170
  • WORKING THROUGH US.
  • 00:09:03.200 --> 00:09:05.250
  • WE'RE GOING INTO A FUTURE FILLED WITH HOPE.
  • 00:09:05.280 --> 00:09:07.180
  • ISN'T ANYONE EXCITED ABOUT THIS?
  • 00:09:07.210 --> 00:09:09.020
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:09:09.050 --> 00:09:10.190
  • MAKE IT AN AMEN.
  • 00:09:10.220 --> 00:09:12.010
  • - CONGREGATION: AMEN.
  • 00:09:12.040 --> 00:09:13.140
  • - OKAY, A LOT OF US WE DON'T PUT IN THE
  • 00:09:13.170 --> 00:09:15.130
  • WORK DURING CRISIS.
  • 00:09:15.160 --> 00:09:16.250
  • WE SAY, OH, I'M GOING TO TAKE LIKE TWO MONTHS OFF.
  • 00:09:16.280 --> 00:09:20.020
  • NOTHING WRONG WITH TAKING TWO MONTHS OFF IF GOD ALLOWS
  • 00:09:20.050 --> 00:09:22.190
  • IT, BUT LET ME JUST SAY THIS.
  • 00:09:22.220 --> 00:09:24.240
  • SOMETIMES, WHAT WE DO IS, IN CRISIS, RATHER THAN PUTTING
  • 00:09:24.270 --> 00:09:27.140
  • IN THE WORK, WE DON'T FEEL LIKE THIS, WE PUT IN THE
  • 00:09:27.170 --> 00:09:29.120
  • WORK, FOLLOWING OUR DREAMS, HERE'S THE PROBLEM.
  • 00:09:29.150 --> 00:09:32.180
  • IN CRISIS, INSTEAD WHAT WE DO IS WE
  • 00:09:32.210 --> 00:09:34.130
  • RELY ON SERENDIPITY.
  • 00:09:34.160 --> 00:09:36.060
  • WHAT WE DO IS RELY ON CAPRICIOUS CHANCE.
  • 00:09:36.090 --> 00:09:38.190
  • WHAT WE DO IS WE SAY, I'M IN A CRISIS.
  • 00:09:38.220 --> 00:09:40.170
  • GOD, SPEAK TO ME.
  • 00:09:40.200 --> 00:09:41.260
  • SO I OPEN MY BIBLE AND JUST EXPECT GOD TO SPEAK TO ME AS
  • 00:09:41.290 --> 00:09:43.110
  • I OPEN MY BIBLE RANDOMLY.
  • 00:09:43.140 --> 00:09:45.050
  • AND I'M LIKE, OH, NO, IT'S LEVITICUS.
  • 00:09:45.080 --> 00:09:47.000
  • GOD DOESN'T CARE ABOUT ME.
  • 00:09:47.030 --> 00:09:48.060
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:09:48.090 --> 00:09:50.040
  • IT'S LIKE...
  • 00:09:50.070 --> 00:09:54.210
  • WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY IS I'M GOING TO BE REALLY
  • 00:09:54.240 --> 00:09:56.220
  • HONEST WITH YOU AND SHARE FROM MY HEART.
  • 00:09:56.250 --> 00:09:58.080
  • I'M GOING LONGER TONIGHT.
  • 00:09:58.110 --> 00:09:59.210
  • I WAS ONLY SUPPOSED TO GO 25 MINUTES, BUT NEXT WEEK, I
  • 00:09:59.240 --> 00:10:03.020
  • WILL GO UNDER 25 MINUTES. YOU WATCH.
  • 00:10:03.050 --> 00:10:04.170
  • YOU WAIT, YOU'LL SEE. YOU WATCH.
  • 00:10:04.200 --> 00:10:07.230
  • 25 MINUTES NEXT WEEK, ONE HOUR SERVICE, BUT I GOTTA
  • 00:10:07.260 --> 00:10:09.290
  • GET YOU THIS STUFF.
  • 00:10:10.020 --> 00:10:13.000
  • IS ANYONE BEING HELPED SO FAR?
  • 00:10:13.030 --> 00:10:14.230
  • ARE YOU BEING HELPED SO FAR? OKAY --
  • 00:10:14.260 --> 00:10:16.100
  • - CONGREGATION MEMBER: GO LONGER!
  • 00:10:16.130 --> 00:10:18.080
  • - YOU DON'T WANT TO SAY THAT.
  • 00:10:18.110 --> 00:10:19.240
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:10:19.270 --> 00:10:21.100
  • EVERYONE ELSE IS LIKE, NO!
  • 00:10:21.130 --> 00:10:24.060
  • OKAY, NAY NAY SAYS EVERYBODY ELSE, AND I'M
  • 00:10:24.090 --> 00:10:26.070
  • NOT HORSING AROUND.
  • 00:10:26.100 --> 00:10:28.140
  • THAT WAS LIKE DOUBLE PUN FROM THE EARLIER JOKE.
  • 00:10:28.170 --> 00:10:31.140
  • ANYWAYS [SIGHING] PLEASE LOOK AT YOUR NAAAAAYBOR...
  • 00:10:31.170 --> 00:10:36.220
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:10:36.250 --> 00:10:38.110
  • AND SAY HOPE IS DOPE.
  • 00:10:38.140 --> 00:10:39.230
  • - CONGREGATION: HOPE IS DOPE.
  • 00:10:39.260 --> 00:10:41.040
  • - OKAY, THANK YOU.
  • 00:10:41.070 --> 00:10:42.230
  • NOW, LET ME SPEAK FROM MY HEART ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:10:42.260 --> 00:10:44.270
  • WHEN YOU'RE GOING THROUGH CRISIS, "HOW" TO KEEP THAT
  • 00:10:45.000 --> 00:10:47.010
  • WORK ETHIC; I'M WORKING HARDER THAN ANYONE ELSE,
  • 00:10:47.040 --> 00:10:48.260
  • SAYS PAUL, EVEN IN CRISIS.
  • 00:10:48.290 --> 00:10:50.190
  • HERE'S THE THING.
  • 00:10:50.220 --> 00:10:53.120
  • "SECOND OPINIONIANS 2:22"...
  • 00:10:53.150 --> 00:10:57.150
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:10:57.180 --> 00:11:05.060
  • SAYS THAT GOD WILL NOT GIVE YOU MORE THAN
  • 00:11:05.090 --> 00:11:09.000
  • YOU CAN HANDLE.
  • 00:11:09.030 --> 00:11:10.250
  • NOW, I AM NOT MAKING FUN OF THAT STATEMENT BECAUSE I GET
  • 00:11:10.280 --> 00:11:15.220
  • WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING.
  • 00:11:15.250 --> 00:11:17.070
  • I HEAR THE HEART.
  • 00:11:17.100 --> 00:11:18.280
  • SO WHEN SOMEBODY SAYS OH, THE BIBLE SAYS GOD WON'T
  • 00:11:19.010 --> 00:11:20.290
  • GIVE ME MORE THAN I CAN HANDLE, YOU DON'T HAVE TO
  • 00:11:21.020 --> 00:11:22.170
  • SAY, NO, I REBUKE YOU BROTHER IN THE NAME OF JESUS!
  • 00:11:22.200 --> 00:11:24.010
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:11:24.040 --> 00:11:26.100
  • I GET THE HEART OF THAT.
  • 00:11:26.130 --> 00:11:27.200
  • THAT'S VERY BEAUTIFUL, AND I REALLY UNDERSTAND THE HEART,
  • 00:11:27.230 --> 00:11:31.270
  • BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS, AND THAT'S
  • 00:11:32.000 --> 00:11:34.060
  • NOT TRUE TO LIFE. THIS IS THE TRUTH.
  • 00:11:34.090 --> 00:11:39.100
  • GOD WILL NEVER GIVE YOU ANYTHING HE CAN'T HANDLE.
  • 00:11:39.130 --> 00:11:46.110
  • I GO THROUGH STUFF THAT I CAN'T HANDLE.
  • 00:11:46.140 --> 00:11:49.240
  • I'VE BEEN THROUGH A LOT OF STUFF I CAN'T HANDLE, BUT I
  • 00:11:49.270 --> 00:11:53.050
  • HAVE NEVER BEEN THROUGH ANYTHING THAT
  • 00:11:53.080 --> 00:11:56.090
  • GOD CANNOT HANDLE.
  • 00:11:56.120 --> 00:12:00.140
  • AND WHEN YOUR PROBLEM IS TOO BIG FOR YOU, IT'S JUST THE
  • 00:12:00.170 --> 00:12:05.070
  • RIGHT SIZE FOR GOD!
  • 00:12:05.100 --> 00:12:07.210
  • MY HOPELESSNESS ABOUT A PROBLEM IS A BIGGER PROBLEM
  • 00:12:07.240 --> 00:12:09.290
  • THAN MY PROBLEM, SO MY PRAISE WILL BECOME A PROBLEM
  • 00:12:10.020 --> 00:12:12.150
  • FOR MY PROBLEM, AND WHEN MY NIGHT IS AT ITS DARKEST,
  • 00:12:12.180 --> 00:12:15.220
  • THAT'S WHEN MY PRAISE HAS TO BE AT ITS LOUDEST BECAUSE
  • 00:12:15.250 --> 00:12:18.260
  • BAD LEADERS ARE DESTROYED BY CRISIS, GOOD LEADERS
  • 00:12:18.290 --> 00:12:21.290
  • SURVIVE CRISIS, BUT GREAT LEADERS IMPROVE BY CRISIS,
  • 00:12:22.020 --> 00:12:24.100
  • FOR WHEN I AM WEAK, THEN I AM STRONG.
  • 00:12:24.130 --> 00:12:26.040
  • CAN I GET AN AMEN.
  • 00:12:26.070 --> 00:12:27.190
  • - CONGREGATION: AMEN.
  • 00:12:27.220 --> 00:12:29.090
  • - GOD WILL NEVER GIVE YOU ANYTHING HE CAN'T HANDLE,
  • 00:12:29.120 --> 00:12:31.170
  • AND WHEN YOU LOOK TO HIM, HE WILL GIVE YOU STRENGTH.
  • 00:12:31.200 --> 00:12:33.100
  • NUMBER TWO, WE'RE GOING TO RACE.
  • 00:12:33.130 --> 00:12:35.030
  • NUMBER TWO, YOUR "WHY" HAS TO BE STRONGER THAN YOUR "HOW".
  • 00:12:35.060 --> 00:12:38.220
  • EVERYBODY PLEASE SAY YOUR "WHY"... - CONGREGATION: "WHY".
  • 00:12:38.250 --> 00:12:41.080
  • - HAS TO BE STRONGER... - CONGREGATION: HAS TO BE STRONGER.
  • 00:12:41.110 --> 00:12:43.190
  • - THAN YOUR "HOW". - CONGREGATION: THAN YOUR "HOW".
  • 00:12:43.220 --> 00:12:46.100
  • - HERE'S THE DEAL.
  • 00:12:46.130 --> 00:12:48.190
  • ONE OF MY FAVORITE QUOTES IS THIS: I HAVE HAD NIGHTMARES,
  • 00:12:48.220 --> 00:12:52.160
  • AND I HAVE HAD DREAMS, BUT I HAVE CONQUERED MY NIGHTMARES
  • 00:12:52.190 --> 00:12:56.160
  • BECAUSE OF MY DREAMS.
  • 00:12:56.190 --> 00:13:00.080
  • I HAVE HAD NIGHTMARES IN LIFE, AND I HAVE
  • 00:13:00.110 --> 00:13:02.070
  • HAD DREAMS COME TRUE.
  • 00:13:02.100 --> 00:13:04.120
  • I HAVE HAD NIGHTMARES, AND I HAVE HAD DREAMS, BUT I HAVE
  • 00:13:04.150 --> 00:13:06.150
  • CONQUERED MY NIGHTMARES BECAUSE OF MY DREAMS.
  • 00:13:06.180 --> 00:13:08.270
  • "HOW" DO YOU GO INTO THE LAND FLOWING WITH MILK
  • 00:13:09.000 --> 00:13:11.130
  • AND HONEY AND FIGHT ANAKIN GIANTS?
  • 00:13:11.160 --> 00:13:14.000
  • AND YOU LOOK LIKE GRASSHOPPERS IN THEIR SIGHT.
  • 00:13:14.030 --> 00:13:16.270
  • YOU REMEMBER THERE ARE GRAPES THE SIZE OF
  • 00:13:17.000 --> 00:13:18.170
  • BASKETBALLS IF YOU'LL FIGHT THROUGH IT.
  • 00:13:18.200 --> 00:13:20.240
  • THERE'S MILK AND HONEY FLOWING IF YOU'LL POWER
  • 00:13:20.270 --> 00:13:23.050
  • THROUGH, IF YOU'LL POWER THROUGH THE PAIN TO GOD'S
  • 00:13:23.080 --> 00:13:25.090
  • PURPOSE BECAUSE AS LONG AS YOU GOT A PULSE, YOU
  • 00:13:25.120 --> 00:13:28.020
  • STILL GOT A PURPOSE.
  • 00:13:28.050 --> 00:13:29.230
  • SO YOUR "WHY" HAS TO BE STRONGER THAN YOUR "HOW".
  • 00:13:29.260 --> 00:13:32.170
  • MY "WHY" IS TO GIVE PEOPLE HOPE, AND I READ A TESTIMONY
  • 00:13:32.200 --> 00:13:35.250
  • TODAY OF A GUY WHO WAS GOING TO KILL HIMSELF,
  • 00:13:35.280 --> 00:13:37.160
  • AND NOW HE'S NOT.
  • 00:13:37.190 --> 00:13:39.110
  • I'M LIKE, THAT'S "WHY" I DO THIS.
  • 00:13:39.140 --> 00:13:41.240
  • WHEN I HEAR PEOPLE COME UP TO ME AND SAY, "I'M ACTUALLY
  • 00:13:41.270 --> 00:13:44.070
  • WALKING WITH GOD NOW," I'M LIKE, "THAT'S "WHY" I DO
  • 00:13:44.100 --> 00:13:46.220
  • THIS." AND I DON'T ALWAYS KNOW "HOW" I'M GOING TO
  • 00:13:46.250 --> 00:13:50.030
  • POWER THROUGH TO ACCOMPLISH MY GOD-GIVEN GOALS,
  • 00:13:50.060 --> 00:13:52.110
  • BUT MY "WHY" IS STRONGER THAN MY "HOW".
  • 00:13:52.140 --> 00:13:55.030
  • AND IN THE SAME WAY, YOU LOOK AT PAUL THE APOSTLE.
  • 00:13:55.060 --> 00:13:58.060
  • HE WENT THROUGH HELL.
  • 00:13:58.090 --> 00:14:00.030
  • HE HAD HELL AROUND HIM, BUT HE HAD THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN
  • 00:14:00.060 --> 00:14:02.080
  • INSIDE HIM BECAUSE JESUS SAID THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN
  • 00:14:02.110 --> 00:14:04.230
  • IS IN YOU, AND THE KINGDOM, PAUL SAID, IS RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:14:04.260 --> 00:14:07.090
  • PEACE, AND JOY IN THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:14:07.120 --> 00:14:09.150
  • HERE'S WHAT PAUL SAID IN THE BOOK OF ACTS, "I HAVE NOT
  • 00:14:09.180 --> 00:14:12.270
  • BEEN DISOBEDIENT TO THE HEAVENLY VISION."
  • 00:14:13.000 --> 00:14:16.040
  • WHAT WAS HIS VISION? TO CHANGE THE WORLD.
  • 00:14:16.070 --> 00:14:17.230
  • WHAT WAS HIS VISION?
  • 00:14:17.260 --> 00:14:19.200
  • THE BIBLE SAYS TO PREACH TO KINGS, TO PREACH TO JEWS, TO
  • 00:14:19.230 --> 00:14:21.220
  • PREACH TO GENTILES.
  • 00:14:21.250 --> 00:14:24.150
  • HE WAS CALLED TO PREACH TO EVERYBODY.
  • 00:14:24.180 --> 00:14:26.180
  • HE WAS THE APOSTLE TO THE WORLD.
  • 00:14:26.210 --> 00:14:28.160
  • THE WORLD WAS HIS PULPIT, AND YET, EVEN WHEN HE WENT
  • 00:14:28.190 --> 00:14:32.000
  • THROUGH HELL, AROUND HIM, HE HAD HEAVEN INSIDE HIM
  • 00:14:32.030 --> 00:14:35.120
  • BECAUSE HIS "WHY" WAS STRONGER THAN HIS "HOW".
  • 00:14:35.150 --> 00:14:38.090
  • THAT'S GOT TO BE THE CASE FOR US.
  • 00:14:38.120 --> 00:14:40.050
  • NUMBER THREE, THERE'S NO SUCCESS WITHOUT A SUCCESSOR.
  • 00:14:40.080 --> 00:14:44.270
  • EVERYBODY PLEASE SAY, "THERE'S NO SUCCESS...
  • 00:14:45.000 --> 00:14:47.070
  • - CONGREGATION: THERE'S NO SUCCESS...
  • 00:14:47.100 --> 00:14:48.210
  • - THAT WAS SO BAD.
  • 00:14:48.240 --> 00:14:50.160
  • I AM GOING TO POWER THROUGH.
  • 00:14:50.190 --> 00:14:52.270
  • BUT OTHERWISE, IF MY "WHY" WASN'T STRONGER THAN ANYHOW,
  • 00:14:53.000 --> 00:14:55.130
  • I WOULD NOT BE PREACHING ANYMORE TONIGHT.
  • 00:14:55.160 --> 00:14:57.060
  • THAT'S "HOW" WEAK THAT WAS JUST NOW.
  • 00:14:57.090 --> 00:14:59.010
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:14:59.040 --> 00:15:01.190
  • EVERYBODY PLEASE SAY, THERE'S NO SUCCESS...
  • 00:15:01.220 --> 00:15:03.260
  • - CONGREGATION: THERE'S NO SUCCESS...
  • 00:15:03.290 --> 00:15:05.200
  • - WITHOUT A SUCCESSOR.
  • 00:15:05.230 --> 00:15:07.020
  • - CONGREGATION: WITHOUT A SUCCESSOR.
  • 00:15:07.050 --> 00:15:09.000
  • - MOSES HAD JOSHUA.
  • 00:15:09.030 --> 00:15:12.040
  • THAT'S HOW THE PROMISED LAND WAS OCCUPIED.
  • 00:15:12.070 --> 00:15:14.080
  • ELIJAH HAD ELISHA.
  • 00:15:14.110 --> 00:15:16.220
  • THAT'S HOW- THE PROPHETS OF BAAL WILL KEPT AT BAY.
  • 00:15:16.250 --> 00:15:19.030
  • JESUS HAD PETER AND THE REST OF HIS DISCIPLES, AND HE
  • 00:15:19.060 --> 00:15:22.230
  • SAID, "GREATER THINGS WILL YOU DO THAN THE THINGS YOU
  • 00:15:22.260 --> 00:15:25.220
  • HAVE SEEN ME DO BECAUSE I ASCEND TO MY FATHER AND SEND
  • 00:15:25.250 --> 00:15:28.000
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT." JESUS HAD HIS SUCCESSORS.
  • 00:15:28.030 --> 00:15:30.110
  • IN THE SAME WAY, PAUL THE APOSTLE WE'RE STUDYING
  • 00:15:30.140 --> 00:15:32.240
  • TONIGHT, HE HAD TIMOTHY. HE HAD TIMOTHY.
  • 00:15:32.270 --> 00:15:36.180
  • YOU NEED A PAD ALONG LEARNER.
  • 00:15:36.210 --> 00:15:39.220
  • YOU'RE LIKE, NOBODY LISTENS TO ME. THAT'S NOT TRUE.
  • 00:15:39.250 --> 00:15:42.080
  • EVERYBODY HAS THE SPIRIT OF INFLUENCE.
  • 00:15:42.110 --> 00:15:44.030
  • WHAT ABOUT YOUR FIVE YEAR-OLD BROTHER?
  • 00:15:44.060 --> 00:15:46.060
  • EVERYBODY HAS SOMEBODY THAT THEY CAN INFLUENCE.
  • 00:15:46.090 --> 00:15:49.260
  • LISTEN, 50 PEOPLE OVER THE AGE OF 95, THEY WERE ASKED
  • 00:15:49.290 --> 00:15:53.080
  • "IF YOU COULD GO BACK AND DO ONE THING DIFFERENTLY,
  • 00:15:53.110 --> 00:15:55.150
  • WHAT WOULD YOU DO? THREE ANSWERS CAME UP.
  • 00:15:55.180 --> 00:15:57.120
  • NUMBER ONE, THESE PEOPLE OVER 95, THEY SAID, "WE WISH
  • 00:15:57.150 --> 00:16:00.280
  • THAT WE HAD TAKEN MORE RISKS." NUMBER TWO, "WE WISH
  • 00:16:01.010 --> 00:16:03.260
  • THAT WE HAD REFLECTED MORE." AND THIS WAS ANOTHER ONE,
  • 00:16:03.290 --> 00:16:06.020
  • NUMBER THREE, THEY WISHED THAT THEY HAD DONE THINGS
  • 00:16:06.050 --> 00:16:08.000
  • THAT LIVED ON AFTER THEY DIED.
  • 00:16:08.030 --> 00:16:10.070
  • BUT HOW ARE WE GOING TO LEAVE THINGS FOR THE NEXT
  • 00:16:10.100 --> 00:16:12.000
  • GENERATION IF WE'RE NOT REACHING
  • 00:16:12.030 --> 00:16:13.230
  • THE NEXT GENERATION? YOU SAY, BEN, I'M 12.
  • 00:16:13.260 --> 00:16:18.090
  • WELL, GO FIND A FOUR-YEAR OLD.
  • 00:16:18.120 --> 00:16:20.070
  • THE KIDS' WINGS ALWAYS NEEDS MORE VOLUNTEERS.
  • 00:16:20.100 --> 00:16:23.040
  • THERE'S NO SUCCESS -- THAT WAS A LITTLE KIDS' WING PLUG
  • 00:16:23.070 --> 00:16:26.020
  • -- THERE'S NO SUCCESS -- BY THE WAY, FOURTH GRADE AND
  • 00:16:26.050 --> 00:16:29.220
  • DOWN, THERE'S CHILDREN'S SERVICE.
  • 00:16:29.250 --> 00:16:31.260
  • IF YOU EVER WANT TO HELP, IT'S THERE ON MONDAY NIGHTS
  • 00:16:31.290 --> 00:16:34.240
  • OR WHENEVER YOU COME. HERE'S THE THING.
  • 00:16:34.270 --> 00:16:37.150
  • THERE'S NO SUCCESS WITHOUT A SUCCESSOR.
  • 00:16:37.180 --> 00:16:39.160
  • EVERY PAUL NEEDS A TIMOTHY.
  • 00:16:39.190 --> 00:16:41.140
  • EVERY OBI WAN KENOBI NEEDS ANAKIN.
  • 00:16:41.170 --> 00:16:44.170
  • EVERY GANDOLPH NEEDS AN ARAGORN.
  • 00:16:44.200 --> 00:16:47.190
  • ARE YOU FOLLOWING ME? OKAY, THANK YOU.
  • 00:16:47.220 --> 00:16:51.270
  • EVERY DUMBLEDORE NEEDS A HARRY.
  • 00:16:52.000 --> 00:16:53.180
  • [AUDIENCE CHEERING]
  • 00:16:53.210 --> 00:16:55.220
  • NUMBER FOUR, NUMBER FOUR, NUMBER FOUR, NUMBER FOUR:
  • 00:16:55.250 --> 00:16:58.180
  • SUCCESS IS DOING WHAT OTHERS WON'T DO TODAY TO
  • 00:16:58.210 --> 00:17:02.230
  • HAVE WHAT OTHERS CAN'T HAVE TOMORROW.
  • 00:17:02.260 --> 00:17:05.120
  • SUCCESS IS DOING WHAT OTHERS WON'T DO TODAY TO HAVE WHAT
  • 00:17:05.150 --> 00:17:08.140
  • OTHERS CAN'T HAVE TOMORROW.
  • 00:17:08.170 --> 00:17:10.150
  • WHEN YOU LOOK AT THESE PRODIGIES WHO ARE LIKE
  • 00:17:10.180 --> 00:17:12.290
  • AMAZING AT THE PIANO, THEY WERE NOT PLAYING BASKETBALL
  • 00:17:13.020 --> 00:17:16.150
  • WHEN ALL OF THEIR FRIENDS WERE DILLY DALLYING.
  • 00:17:16.180 --> 00:17:19.120
  • WHEN YOU LOOK AT BOBBY FISHER, WHO WAS A CHESS
  • 00:17:19.150 --> 00:17:22.050
  • MASTER BY THE AGE OF 13, OR TIGER WOODS, WHO WAS ONE OF
  • 00:17:22.080 --> 00:17:24.210
  • THE BEST GOLFERS AT A YOUNG AGE, OF ALL TIME, WHO
  • 00:17:24.240 --> 00:17:27.030
  • ACCOMPLISHED MORE AT A YOUNG AGE THAN ANYONE IN HISTORY,
  • 00:17:27.060 --> 00:17:29.280
  • YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER HE WAS GOLFING WHEN HE WAS TWO ON
  • 00:17:30.010 --> 00:17:32.080
  • THE BOB HOPE SHOW.
  • 00:17:32.110 --> 00:17:34.080
  • WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY IS IT'S NOT FUN WHEN, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:17:34.110 --> 00:17:38.070
  • EVERYONE ELSE OUT THERE IS JUST PLAYING X BOX LIVE ALL
  • 00:17:38.100 --> 00:17:42.020
  • THE TIME, AND WE'RE JUST GRINDING.
  • 00:17:42.050 --> 00:17:46.090
  • BUT WE DO WHAT OTHERS WON'T DO TODAY SO WE CAN HAVE WHAT
  • 00:17:46.120 --> 00:17:48.280
  • OTHERS CAN'T HAVE TOMORROW. HERE'S THE THING.
  • 00:17:49.010 --> 00:17:51.130
  • PAUL THE APOSTLE, THERE ARE 66 BOOKS IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:17:51.160 --> 00:17:54.160
  • BY 40 DIFFERENT AUTHORS.
  • 00:17:54.190 --> 00:17:56.070
  • DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY PAUL WROTE? 14.
  • 00:17:56.100 --> 00:17:59.120
  • PAUL WROTE 14 BOOKS.
  • 00:17:59.150 --> 00:18:01.250
  • HE WROTE MORE BOOKS NUMERICALLY THAN
  • 00:18:01.280 --> 00:18:04.270
  • ANY PERSON IN HISTORY.
  • 00:18:05.000 --> 00:18:06.280
  • THE GREATEST PIECE OF LITERATURE IN HISTORY, PAUL
  • 00:18:07.010 --> 00:18:09.070
  • WAS THE CHIEF CONTRIBUTOR.
  • 00:18:09.100 --> 00:18:10.200
  • NOW, HERE'S WHY I POINT THAT OUT.
  • 00:18:10.230 --> 00:18:12.270
  • MANY OF HIS LETTERS WERE WRITTEN IN PRISON.
  • 00:18:13.000 --> 00:18:17.000
  • IF I WERE AN AUTHOR LIKE PAUL, I'M LIKE,
  • 00:18:17.030 --> 00:18:19.010
  • YOU KNOW, I'M IN PRISON.
  • 00:18:19.040 --> 00:18:20.200
  • I THINK I CAN THROW A PITY PARTY AND BE PART OF
  • 00:18:20.230 --> 00:18:22.080
  • A MOPE GENERATION.
  • 00:18:22.110 --> 00:18:23.230
  • BUT PAUL'S LIKE, NOPE.
  • 00:18:23.260 --> 00:18:25.040
  • TIME TO ROLL UP THE SLEEVES, AND WE'RE GOING
  • 00:18:25.070 --> 00:18:26.230
  • TO KEEP WORKING.
  • 00:18:26.260 --> 00:18:28.040
  • IT'S LIKE, PAUL, YOU'RE IN PRISON!
  • 00:18:28.070 --> 00:18:29.190
  • SERIOUSLY, LIKE YOUR WOUNDS.
  • 00:18:29.220 --> 00:18:31.000
  • HE'S LIKE, NOPE, GOING TO KEEP WORKING.
  • 00:18:31.030 --> 00:18:32.250
  • AND SOME OF HIS BEST WORK CAME OUT OF CRISIS.
  • 00:18:32.280 --> 00:18:35.000
  • WHEN YOU BURN IN YOUR CREATIVE FIRE, WHEN YOU'RE
  • 00:18:35.030 --> 00:18:38.030
  • GOING THROUGH YOUR FIERY TRIBULATION, PAIN OFTEN
  • 00:18:38.060 --> 00:18:40.240
  • PRODUCES THE MOST POWERFUL VISIONS.
  • 00:18:40.270 --> 00:18:43.200
  • SO WE DO WHAT OTHERS WON'T DO TODAY TO HAVE WHAT OTHERS
  • 00:18:43.230 --> 00:18:46.020
  • CAN'T HAVE TOMORROW.
  • 00:18:46.050 --> 00:18:47.150
  • NOW, I ALSO MUST SAY THAT WE HAVE TO LEARN TO
  • 00:18:47.180 --> 00:18:49.120
  • ENJOY OUR LIFE. WORK HARD, PLAY HARD.
  • 00:18:49.150 --> 00:18:53.170
  • ON ONE HAND, JESUS SAID, LISTEN, THE FATHER DOESN'T
  • 00:18:53.200 --> 00:18:56.060
  • TAKE A DAY OFF.
  • 00:18:56.090 --> 00:18:57.250
  • HE'S ALWAYS WORKING AND HEALING, SO "WHY" CAN'T I
  • 00:18:57.280 --> 00:18:59.280
  • HEAL ON THE SABBATH?
  • 00:19:00.030 --> 00:19:01.160
  • AND JESUS HEALED SEVEN TIMES IN FOUR GOSPELS
  • 00:19:01.190 --> 00:19:03.060
  • ON THE SABBATH DAY.
  • 00:19:03.090 --> 00:19:05.070
  • SO THERE'S THAT WORK ETHIC, BUT THEN YOU ALSO HAVE TO
  • 00:19:05.100 --> 00:19:08.270
  • REMEMBER THAT JESUS WAS LIKE HANGING OUT TURNING WATER
  • 00:19:09.000 --> 00:19:11.100
  • INTO WINE AND A FRIEND OF TAX COLLECTORS AND SINNERS,
  • 00:19:11.130 --> 00:19:14.220
  • ALWAYS EATING. HE ATE A LOT.
  • 00:19:14.250 --> 00:19:17.150
  • I DON'T HAVE TIME, BECAUSE I HAVE TO HURRY, TO GO INTO
  • 00:19:17.180 --> 00:19:19.210
  • HOW MUCH JESUS ATE.
  • 00:19:19.240 --> 00:19:21.190
  • THE TRUTH IS, LONG STORY SHORT, WORK HARD, PLAY HARD.
  • 00:19:21.220 --> 00:19:28.110
  • I THINK THAT'S IMPORTANT.
  • 00:19:28.140 --> 00:19:31.020
  • BUT WE DO WHAT OTHERS WON'T DO TODAY SO WE CAN HAVE WHAT
  • 00:19:31.050 --> 00:19:33.000
  • OTHERS CAN'T HAVE TOMORROW.
  • 00:19:33.030 --> 00:19:34.140
  • FINALLY, NUMBER FIVE.
  • 00:19:34.170 --> 00:19:36.070
  • BAND, PLEASE COME UP AT THIS TIME.
  • 00:19:36.100 --> 00:19:38.000
  • IT'S WHAT YOU DO IN THE DARKNESS THAT PUTS
  • 00:19:38.030 --> 00:19:39.120
  • YOU IN THE LIMELIGHT.
  • 00:19:39.150 --> 00:19:40.260
  • EVERYBODY PLEASE SAY IT'S WHAT YOU DO IN THE DARKNESS...
  • 00:19:40.290 --> 00:19:42.260
  • - CONGREGATION: IT'S WHAT YOU DO IN THE DARKNESS...
  • 00:19:42.290 --> 00:19:44.130
  • - THAT PUTS YOU IN THE LIMELIGHT.
  • 00:19:44.160 --> 00:19:46.000
  • - CONGREGATION: THAT PUTS YOU IN THE LIMELIGHT.
  • 00:19:46.030 --> 00:19:47.180
  • - THIS IS WHAT JESUS SAID: WHEN YOU FAST, DON'T HAVE A
  • 00:19:47.210 --> 00:19:50.010
  • LONG FACE AND SHOW EVERYONE, OH, I'M SO HOLY.
  • 00:19:50.040 --> 00:19:52.020
  • I WAS FASTING.
  • 00:19:52.050 --> 00:19:53.110
  • JESUS SAID, WHEN YOU FAST, WASH YOUR FACE.
  • 00:19:53.140 --> 00:19:55.060
  • DON'T LET ANYBODY KNOW YOU WERE FASTING BECAUSE YOUR
  • 00:19:55.090 --> 00:19:58.130
  • FATHER THAT SEES IN SECRET WILL REWARD YOU OPENLY.
  • 00:19:58.160 --> 00:20:02.060
  • WHEN YOU PRAY, DON'T BE LIKE THE PHARISEES PRAYING ON THE
  • 00:20:02.090 --> 00:20:04.120
  • CORNER, LETTING EVERYONE KNOW WHAT A
  • 00:20:04.150 --> 00:20:05.280
  • PRAYER WARRIOR YOU ARE.
  • 00:20:06.010 --> 00:20:07.180
  • HE SAID, LISTEN, PRAY IN YOUR CLOSET, AND YOUR FATHER
  • 00:20:07.210 --> 00:20:10.290
  • WHO SEES IN SECRET WILL REWARD IT OPENLY.
  • 00:20:11.020 --> 00:20:12.290
  • JESUS SAID, WHEN YOU GIVE, DON'T BE LIKE THE PHARISEES
  • 00:20:13.020 --> 00:20:14.140
  • WHO BLOW TRUMPETS AND CLANG THEIR COINS IN
  • 00:20:14.170 --> 00:20:16.270
  • THE TEMPLE OFFERINGS.
  • 00:20:17.000 --> 00:20:18.070
  • HE SAID, WHEN YOU GIVE, DO IT -- DON'T LET YOUR LEFT
  • 00:20:18.100 --> 00:20:20.170
  • HAND KNOW WHAT YOUR RIGHT HAND IS DOING.
  • 00:20:20.200 --> 00:20:22.060
  • JUST DO IT PRIVATELY, AND YOUR FATHER WHO SEES YOU IN
  • 00:20:22.090 --> 00:20:24.130
  • SECRET WILL REWARD YOU OPENLY.
  • 00:20:24.160 --> 00:20:26.230
  • IT'S WHAT YOU DO IN THE DARKNESS THAT WILL PUT YOU
  • 00:20:26.260 --> 00:20:28.260
  • IN THE LIMELIGHT.
  • 00:20:28.290 --> 00:20:31.120
  • AND THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS PAUL THE APOSTLE, WE SEE
  • 00:20:31.150 --> 00:20:36.040
  • HIS HIGHLIGHT REEL.
  • 00:20:36.070 --> 00:20:37.140
  • THIS IS THE ONE PROBLEM I THINK WITH SOCIAL MEDIA WHEN
  • 00:20:37.170 --> 00:20:39.250
  • WE USE IT THE WRONG WAY, IS WE ALWAYS COMPARE OUR BEHIND
  • 00:20:39.280 --> 00:20:42.090
  • THE SCENES WITH EVERYONE ELSE'S HIGHLIGHT REELS.
  • 00:20:42.120 --> 00:20:44.250
  • EVEN WHEN I LOOK ON MY INSTAGRAM, I'M LIKE, YOU
  • 00:20:44.280 --> 00:20:46.210
  • KNOW, THAT DOESN'T REALLY FEEL LIKE HOW MY LIFE IS.
  • 00:20:46.240 --> 00:20:49.120
  • A LOT OF LIFE IS JUST BEHIND THE SCENES.
  • 00:20:49.150 --> 00:20:51.160
  • I LIKE WHAT CHRIS MARTIN SAID.
  • 00:20:51.190 --> 00:20:54.150
  • HE'S LIKE, YOU KNOW, WE'RE ROCK STARS -- HE'S IN THE
  • 00:20:54.180 --> 00:20:56.230
  • BAND COLD PLAY -- HE'S LIKE, WE'RE ROCK STARS FOR LIKE
  • 00:20:56.260 --> 00:20:58.130
  • ONE HOUR A DAY, BUT THE OTHER 23 HOURS OF
  • 00:20:58.160 --> 00:20:59.290
  • THE DAY, WE'RE LOSERS.
  • 00:21:00.040 --> 00:21:02.030
  • THE TRUTH IS, WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY IS WE LOOK AT
  • 00:21:02.060 --> 00:21:05.050
  • PAUL, AND WE'RE LOOK, WHAT A HEAVEN OF A HOLY,
  • 00:21:05.080 --> 00:21:07.210
  • HUMAN, HIGHLIGHT REEL.
  • 00:21:07.240 --> 00:21:09.220
  • BUT WHAT WE FORGET IS DO YOU KNOW PAUL TOOK 14 YEARS, 14
  • 00:21:09.250 --> 00:21:12.130
  • YEARS, TO GET TRAINED IN THE DESERT OF ARABIA,
  • 00:21:12.160 --> 00:21:17.160
  • 14 YEARS TO BE MENTORED BY JESUS MYSTICALLY.
  • 00:21:17.190 --> 00:21:21.200
  • I PICTURE OBI WAN KENOBI'S FORCE GHOST TRAINING LUKE.
  • 00:21:21.230 --> 00:21:24.130
  • THERE WASN'T A FORCE GHOST.
  • 00:21:24.160 --> 00:21:26.170
  • I'M NOT SAYING THAT THEOLOGICALLY.
  • 00:21:26.200 --> 00:21:29.250
  • NO E-MAILS, PLEASE.
  • 00:21:29.280 --> 00:21:33.160
  • BUT HE'S LIKE, I'M DOING A LOT JUST BEHIND THE SCENES;
  • 00:21:33.190 --> 00:21:36.260
  • 14 YEARS OF TRAINING.
  • 00:21:36.290 --> 00:21:38.170
  • BETWEEN THE TIME PAUL WAS CALLED TO PREACH TO KINGS
  • 00:21:38.200 --> 00:21:40.290
  • AND THE TIME BEFORE HE ACTUALLY BEGAN TO PREACH TO
  • 00:21:41.020 --> 00:21:43.110
  • FELIX AND FESTUS AND CAESAR, THERE WAS A 14 YEAR GAP OF
  • 00:21:43.140 --> 00:21:47.050
  • JUST HIM BEING BEHIND THE SCENES, AND I BELIEVE
  • 00:21:47.080 --> 00:21:50.220
  • THAT TRUE WITH BOOKS.
  • 00:21:50.250 --> 00:21:52.160
  • ANY GREAT BOOK IS ONLY AS GOOD AS THE SCRAPS THAT ARE
  • 00:21:52.190 --> 00:21:54.210
  • LEFT ON THE CUTTING ROOM FLOOR.
  • 00:21:54.240 --> 00:21:57.290
  • THE GREAT BOOKS ARE OFTEN TIMES SHORTER, BUT THEY WERE
  • 00:21:58.020 --> 00:22:00.190
  • REALLY LONG.
  • 00:22:00.220 --> 00:22:02.240
  • THERE WAS JUST A LOT CUT OUT BECAUSE THE AUTHOR AND
  • 00:22:02.270 --> 00:22:05.130
  • EDITOR WERE TRYING TO PUT A LOT OF WORK
  • 00:22:05.160 --> 00:22:06.270
  • BEHIND THE SCENES.
  • 00:22:07.000 --> 00:22:08.180
  • AND THE SAME IS TRUE IN LIFE: WHAT YOU DO IN SECRET
  • 00:22:08.210 --> 00:22:10.280
  • WILL BE REWARDED OPENLY.
  • 00:22:11.010 --> 00:22:13.020
  • WHAT YOU DO WHEN NOBODY'S WATCHING -- NOBODY'S
  • 00:22:13.050 --> 00:22:15.180
  • WATCHING KOBE.
  • 00:22:15.210 --> 00:22:17.040
  • HE SHOT HUNDREDS OF SHOTS EVERY DAY.
  • 00:22:17.070 --> 00:22:19.030
  • NOBODY SAW HIM DO THAT.
  • 00:22:19.060 --> 00:22:21.060
  • HE'S JUST DOING IT IN THE DARKNESS SO WHEN HE'S
  • 00:22:21.090 --> 00:22:23.140
  • PLAYING AT STAPLES CENTER, AND HE'S MAKING IT RAIN, AND
  • 00:22:23.170 --> 00:22:26.030
  • HE'S ALL WET, SPLASHING HIS THREES, CROSSING PEOPLE
  • 00:22:26.060 --> 00:22:29.150
  • OVER, PEOPLE ARE LIKE, YOU'RE SUCH A BALLER.
  • 00:22:29.180 --> 00:22:31.220
  • HE'S LIKE, WELL, YEAH, BECAUSE I DID A LOT
  • 00:22:31.250 --> 00:22:34.090
  • IN THE DARK.
  • 00:22:34.120 --> 00:22:35.240
  • THIS JUST HIT ME JUST NOW.
  • 00:22:35.270 --> 00:22:37.150
  • OUR HIGHLIGHT REELS ARE USUALLY REALLY SHORT OF THE
  • 00:22:37.180 --> 00:22:41.110
  • OUR BEHIND THE SCENES ARE USUALLY REALLY LONG.
  • 00:22:41.140 --> 00:22:44.020
  • BUT IF YOU WANT THOSE SHORT BURSTS OF POWER THAT CHANGE
  • 00:22:44.050 --> 00:22:46.250
  • THE WORLD, YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING TO DO REALLY LONG,
  • 00:22:46.280 --> 00:22:50.060
  • PATIENT, BAMBOO TREE WATERING FOR YEARS THAT
  • 00:22:50.090 --> 00:22:53.150
  • NOBODY SEES 14 YEARS IN THE DESERT OF ARABIA.
  • 00:22:53.180 --> 00:22:56.040
  • BUT WHAT YOU DO IN SECRET WILL BE REWARDED OPENLY.
  • 00:22:56.070 --> 00:22:59.030
  • YOU WILL THEN -- WHAT YOU DO IN DARKNESS, YOU WILL BE PUT
  • 00:22:59.060 --> 00:23:01.290
  • IN THE LIMELIGHT FOR WHATEVER GOD'S CALLED YOU TO
  • 00:23:02.020 --> 00:23:04.030
  • DO TO GIVE HIM GLORY TO MAKE MUCH OF HIM, PUT HIM
  • 00:23:04.060 --> 00:23:06.140
  • ON FULL DISPLAY.
  • 00:23:06.170 --> 00:23:07.290
  • WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY IS, MY FRIENDS,
  • 00:23:08.020 --> 00:23:11.250
  • FOLLOW YOUR STOKE.
  • 00:23:11.280 --> 00:23:13.180
  • SLAY THE DAY, AND CRUSH LIFE.
  • 00:23:13.210 --> 00:23:15.220
  • YOU ARE CALLED TO EXCELLENCE.
  • 00:23:15.250 --> 00:23:18.110
  • I BELIEVE CHRISTIANS, AT ALL OF OUR JOBS, WITH ALL OF OUR
  • 00:23:18.140 --> 00:23:22.000
  • VISIONS, WITH OUR GOD-GIVEN DREAMS, WE SHOULD BE THE
  • 00:23:22.030 --> 00:23:24.120
  • BEST AT WHAT WE DO.
  • 00:23:24.150 --> 00:23:26.180
  • I'M SO TIRED OF PEOPLE MAKING FUN OF
  • 00:23:26.210 --> 00:23:27.290
  • CHRISTIAN MOVIES.
  • 00:23:28.020 --> 00:23:29.140
  • WE NEED THE BEST CHRISTIAN MOVIES!
  • 00:23:29.170 --> 00:23:31.020
  • WE NEED THE BEST MOVIES, NOT CHRISTIAN MOVIES.
  • 00:23:31.050 --> 00:23:33.130
  • WE NEED THE BEST MOVIES THAT HAPPEN TO BE CHRISTIAN, BUT
  • 00:23:33.160 --> 00:23:36.020
  • THEY'RE JUST WINNING OSCARS. THAT'S MY OPINION.
  • 00:23:36.050 --> 00:23:38.230
  • I DON'T KNOW IF ANYONE AGREES WITH ME.
  • 00:23:38.260 --> 00:23:40.130
  • I DON'T THINK THE DEVIL HAS TO HAVE THE BEST TUNES.
  • 00:23:40.160 --> 00:23:42.090
  • I'M JUST SAYING.
  • 00:23:42.120 --> 00:23:43.260
  • I THINK WE ARE CALLED TO BE CONSECRATORS.
  • 00:23:43.290 --> 00:23:47.040
  • WE ARE CALLED TO BE LIKE THESE BIBLICAL AUTHORS WHO
  • 00:23:47.070 --> 00:23:49.210
  • TRULY TURNED THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN, NOT BECAUSE
  • 00:23:49.240 --> 00:23:51.220
  • THEY WERE OF THIS WORLD, BUT THEY UNDERSTOOD THE KINGDOM
  • 00:23:51.250 --> 00:23:53.290
  • WAS FOR THIS WORLD, AND THEY WERE IN THIS WORLD ON
  • 00:23:54.020 --> 00:23:56.160
  • PURPOSE, FOR A PURPOSE, NOT BY ACCIDENT,
  • 00:23:56.190 --> 00:23:58.120
  • BUT BY APPOINTMENT.
  • 00:23:58.150 --> 00:24:00.100
  • AND WHAT I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO IS YOU
  • 00:24:00.130 --> 00:24:02.180
  • HAVE A DREAM.
  • 00:24:02.210 --> 00:24:03.250
  • WHY DID YOU GIVE UP ON THE DREAM, IF YOU DID?
  • 00:24:03.280 --> 00:24:05.200
  • DREAM NO SMALL DREAMS FOR THEY HAVE NO POWER TO MOVE
  • 00:24:05.230 --> 00:24:08.220
  • THE HEARTS OF MEN. BE A VISIONEER.
  • 00:24:08.250 --> 00:24:14.080
  • OLD MEN, DREAM DREAMS; YOUNG MEN, SEE VISIONS BECAUSE IF
  • 00:24:14.110 --> 00:24:17.030
  • WE'RE NOT SERVING, WE'RE SWERVING.
  • 00:24:17.060 --> 00:24:20.050
  • AND IF WE'RE COASTING, WE'RE GOING DOWNHILL.
  • 00:24:20.080 --> 00:24:22.240
  • THAT'S THE LAW OF PHYSICS.
  • 00:24:22.270 --> 00:24:24.190
  • AND EVEN WHEN YOU'RE SWEATING, AND EVEN WHEN IT'S
  • 00:24:24.220 --> 00:24:27.070
  • A GRIND, AND EVEN WHEN YOU WANT TO GIVE UP,
  • 00:24:27.100 --> 00:24:29.090
  • DON'T GIVE UP. DON'T GIVE IN.
  • 00:24:29.120 --> 00:24:31.080
  • JUST GIVE IT EVERYTHING YOU'VE GOT.
  • 00:24:31.110 --> 00:24:32.200
  • GIVE EVERYTHING BUT UP.
  • 00:24:32.230 --> 00:24:34.080
  • YOU MIGHT FALL SEVEN TIMES, BUT YOU WILL RISE AGAIN, AND
  • 00:24:34.110 --> 00:24:36.280
  • EVEN WHEN YOU'RE SWEATY, JUST REMEMBER SWEAT
  • 00:24:37.010 --> 00:24:39.130
  • IS FAT CRYING.
  • 00:24:39.160 --> 00:24:41.140
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:24:41.170 --> 00:24:44.120
  • SWEAT IS FAT CRYING.
  • 00:24:44.150 --> 00:24:46.070
  • PAIN IS WEAKNESS LEAVING THE BODY.
  • 00:24:46.100 --> 00:24:48.060
  • PAIN MAKES US STRONGER.
  • 00:24:48.090 --> 00:24:50.000
  • TEARS MAKE US BRAVER.
  • 00:24:50.030 --> 00:24:51.170
  • HEARTBREAK MAKES US WISER.
  • 00:24:51.200 --> 00:24:53.190
  • SO WE'RE GOING TO THANK OUR PAST FOR A BETTER FUTURE,
  • 00:24:53.220 --> 00:24:56.050
  • AND EVEN WHEN I'M GOING THROUGH CRISIS,
  • 00:24:56.080 --> 00:24:57.260
  • THAT'S GOING TO IMPROVE ME.
  • 00:24:57.290 --> 00:24:59.170
  • THAT'S WHAT WE NEED TO SAY BECAUSE MY BREAKDOWN IS
  • 00:24:59.200 --> 00:25:01.240
  • GOD'S BREAKTHROUGH, AND IF I'M IN THE GHETTO OR THE
  • 00:25:01.270 --> 00:25:04.040
  • HOOD, PUT IT TOGETHER, AND HE WORKS IT
  • 00:25:04.070 --> 00:25:06.020
  • TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD.
  • 00:25:06.050 --> 00:25:07.230
  • SO TURN YOUR PAIN INTO POWER AND YOUR VISIONS INTO
  • 00:25:07.260 --> 00:25:10.270
  • VICTORIES BECAUSE ONE WORD GOD HAS NEVER
  • 00:25:11.000 --> 00:25:13.190
  • SAID IS "WHOOPS". HE'S ON THE THRONE. HE'S IN CONTROL.
  • 00:25:13.220 --> 00:25:17.100
  • HIS GIFTS AND CALLINGS ARE WITHOUT REPENTANCE, AND HE
  • 00:25:17.130 --> 00:25:19.210
  • HAS VISION FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:25:19.240 --> 00:25:21.190
  • IF YOUR LIFE TO GOD IS WORTH SAYING, THEN YOUR LIFE TO
  • 00:25:21.220 --> 00:25:24.020
  • YOU SHOULD BE WORTH SAVORING.
  • 00:25:24.050 --> 00:25:26.250

  • YOU HAPPEN TO THE WORLD.
  • 00:25:44.150 --> 00:25:46.060
  • LIFE IS NOT 9O% WHAT HAPPENS TO ME AND 10% HOW I REACT.
  • 00:25:46.090 --> 00:25:48.140
  • IT'S 9O% HOW I RESPOND TO THE 10% THAT HAPPENS TO ME.
