  • 00:10:27.514 --> 00:10:29.850
  • -Interpreter: Some peopletold me, "We're coming."
  • 00:10:29.883 --> 00:10:32.319
  • Some didn't respond.
  • 00:10:32.352 --> 00:10:34.988
  • This happenedmainly at ground zero,
  • 00:10:35.022 --> 00:10:36.924
  • which is where we've lostso many people.
  • 00:10:36.957 --> 00:10:40.761
  • They would say, "We're goingto put ourselves in our houses."
  • 00:10:40.794 --> 00:10:44.364
  • And that's where allthe families would gather.
  • 00:10:44.398 --> 00:10:48.669
  • And us with the cars,buses, national police,
  • 00:10:48.702 --> 00:10:53.540
  • telling peopleto get in the cars,
  • 00:10:53.574 --> 00:10:56.477
  • and we would call them,"Come up, come up!"
  • 00:10:56.510 --> 00:10:58.879
  • But what the people did insteadwas to lock themselves
  • 00:10:58.912 --> 00:11:02.116
  • in their houses.
  • 00:11:02.149 --> 00:11:03.283
  • -John: So the people who'vebeen through something
  • 00:11:03.317 --> 00:11:04.918
  • like this--
  • 00:11:04.952 --> 00:11:06.887
  • how do you understandtheir attitude towards God?
  • 00:11:06.920 --> 00:11:12.726
  • Has that been affectedone way or another?
  • 00:11:12.760 --> 00:11:15.329
  • [Rosa speaking Spanish]
  • 00:11:15.362 --> 00:11:17.264
  • -Interpreter: Today, all thepeople have come closer to God,
  • 00:11:17.297 --> 00:11:21.068
  • seeking God, especiallyif we pray with them.
  • 00:11:21.101 --> 00:11:25.906
  • They may have comefrom different churches,
  • 00:11:25.939 --> 00:11:28.609
  • but today when you approachsomeone and tell them,
  • 00:11:28.642 --> 00:11:31.979
  • "We want to prayfor you," they cry,
  • 00:11:32.012 --> 00:11:35.916
  • they repent,
  • 00:11:35.949 --> 00:11:38.318
  • and they come close to God.
  • 00:11:38.352 --> 00:11:41.021
  • That is the attitudethat the people now have.
  • 00:11:41.054 --> 00:11:45.726
  • -John: After theVolcano of Fire erupted,
  • 00:11:46.059 --> 00:11:48.896
  • rescue efforts were hinderedby the clouds of toxic gas
  • 00:11:48.929 --> 00:11:53.200
  • that hung heavy in the air.
  • 00:11:53.233 --> 00:11:55.536
  • The ground was so hotthat the soles of the boots
  • 00:11:55.569 --> 00:11:59.339
  • worn by rescuers meltedwhile on their feet.
  • 00:11:59.373 --> 00:12:03.610
  • And then heavy rain fell,
  • 00:12:03.644 --> 00:12:04.812
  • making rescue and recoveryjust that much more difficult.
  • 00:12:04.845 --> 00:12:08.949
  • But rescuers, manyof them volunteers,
  • 00:12:08.982 --> 00:12:10.784
  • flocked to the area to seewhat they could do to help.
  • 00:12:10.818 --> 00:12:13.854
  • One of them was RicardoCarrillo, a local church pastor,
  • 00:12:13.887 --> 00:12:17.624
  • among the first to arriveon the scene in Escuintla.
  • 00:12:17.658 --> 00:12:21.829
  • Pastor, I understandyou were one
  • 00:12:22.830 --> 00:12:24.131
  • of the very firstchurch workers
  • 00:12:24.164 --> 00:12:26.767
  • to get to the siteof the disaster.
  • 00:12:26.800 --> 00:12:29.937
  • Tell me what went throughyour mind when you heard
  • 00:12:29.970 --> 00:12:34.107
  • that the volcano had erupted.
  • 00:12:34.141 --> 00:12:35.976
  • [Ricardo speaking Spanish]
  • 00:12:36.009 --> 00:12:37.511
  • -Interpreter:In that moment I thought--
  • 00:12:37.544 --> 00:12:38.745
  • the volcano had been activeevery day before this--
  • 00:12:38.779 --> 00:12:40.814
  • and in that moment, the firstthing that came into my mind was
  • 00:12:40.848 --> 00:12:44.251
  • the volcanic activitythat was happening
  • 00:12:44.284 --> 00:12:46.320
  • the days before the eruption.
  • 00:12:46.353 --> 00:12:48.021
  • And I said, "Wow, whatmust have happened?"
  • 00:12:48.055 --> 00:12:50.958
  • If the volcano erupted, thatmeans it would have devastated
  • 00:12:50.991 --> 00:12:53.727
  • several of the communitiesthat I actually knew.
  • 00:12:53.760 --> 00:12:56.496
  • When we arrived at thelocation of the disaster,
  • 00:12:56.530 --> 00:12:59.066
  • what we were looking at--well,it was definitely shocking.
  • 00:12:59.099 --> 00:13:03.003
  • In that moment, in mymind, I said to myself,
  • 00:13:03.036 --> 00:13:06.540
  • how many peoplemust have been killed?
  • 00:13:06.573 --> 00:13:09.276
  • -John: When you made itto the volcano area,
  • 00:13:09.309 --> 00:13:12.846
  • to that area that wasaffected, what did you see?
  • 00:13:12.880 --> 00:13:16.149
  • What did you experiencewhen you got there?
  • 00:13:16.183 --> 00:13:18.719
  • [Ricardo speaking Spanish]
  • 00:13:19.019 --> 00:13:20.287
  • -Interpreter: It is difficultto explain with words
  • 00:13:20.320 --> 00:13:22.389
  • because my heart,it sank in that moment.
  • 00:13:22.422 --> 00:13:25.893
  • When I got there,
  • 00:13:25.926 --> 00:13:26.960
  • I saw a communitythat I'd seen many times
  • 00:13:26.994 --> 00:13:29.730
  • because I used to pass bythat area all the time.
  • 00:13:29.763 --> 00:13:32.366
  • Now a person would end upgetting lost out there
  • 00:13:32.399 --> 00:13:35.135
  • because the land therehas become unrecognizable.
  • 00:13:35.168 --> 00:13:38.739
  • So, in that moment,my heart sank so much;
  • 00:13:38.772 --> 00:13:43.310
  • there was so muchsadness in my heart.
  • 00:13:43.343 --> 00:13:45.379
  • -John: With everything thatyou've seen and experienced,
  • 00:13:45.412 --> 00:13:48.815
  • and the people thatyou've spoken to,
  • 00:13:48.849 --> 00:13:50.550
  • and the storiesthat you've heard,
  • 00:13:50.584 --> 00:13:52.753
  • what has impacted you the mostthroughout this process?
  • 00:13:52.786 --> 00:13:57.557
  • [Ricardo speaking Spanish]
  • 00:13:58.859 --> 00:14:01.662
  • -Interpreter: Seeing the kids--
  • 00:14:01.695 --> 00:14:03.864
  • to see the bodiesof the children
  • 00:14:03.897 --> 00:14:06.400
  • that were being takenout of this place.
  • 00:14:06.433 --> 00:14:10.270
  • Some of the kids who diedhugging each other--
  • 00:14:10.304 --> 00:14:13.307
  • seeing that part,
  • 00:14:13.340 --> 00:14:16.143
  • the physical reactionthat some of these kids had
  • 00:14:16.176 --> 00:14:20.047
  • when this was happening.
  • 00:14:20.080 --> 00:14:22.049
  • Some of them ended upwith their arms up,
  • 00:14:22.082 --> 00:14:26.286
  • like in a defensive position,
  • 00:14:26.320 --> 00:14:28.722
  • trying to protect themselvesfrom what was happening.
  • 00:14:28.755 --> 00:14:31.992
  • So, when they weretaking them out,
  • 00:14:32.025 --> 00:14:34.628
  • their arms were still upin that defensive position.
  • 00:14:34.661 --> 00:14:38.231
  • That was one of the thingsthat impacted me the most.
  • 00:14:38.265 --> 00:14:42.602
  • -John: We've read in the newsthat 120 people died;
  • 00:14:42.636 --> 00:14:48.642
  • 200 people are missing.
  • 00:14:48.675 --> 00:14:51.044
  • But we're toldby people in the area
  • 00:14:51.078 --> 00:14:53.780
  • there's maybe 1.500 peoplethat are unaccounted for.
  • 00:14:53.814 --> 00:14:57.918
  • Maybe we'll never know.
  • 00:14:57.951 --> 00:14:59.920
  • Why was it that so many peopleweren't able to get out
  • 00:14:59.953 --> 00:15:04.358
  • or didn't get out in time?
  • 00:15:04.391 --> 00:15:05.959
  • [Ricardo speaking Spanish]
  • 00:15:05.993 --> 00:15:07.461
  • -Interpreter: Becauseof the number of people
  • 00:15:07.494 --> 00:15:09.396
  • that were in that place,because it was a Sunday--
  • 00:15:09.429 --> 00:15:13.233
  • Sunday usuallyisn't a working day.
  • 00:15:13.266 --> 00:15:15.969
  • Many people werein their houses,
  • 00:15:16.003 --> 00:15:18.372
  • and the childrenweren't at school.
  • 00:15:18.405 --> 00:15:21.541
  • The few who were savedat the time
  • 00:15:21.575 --> 00:15:23.510
  • were saved becausethey had gone out
  • 00:15:23.543 --> 00:15:25.979
  • to do somethingoutside of their houses,
  • 00:15:26.013 --> 00:15:29.649
  • something that wasn't routine.
  • 00:15:29.683 --> 00:15:32.185
  • The people were too accustomedto the volcanic activity--
  • 00:15:32.219 --> 00:15:35.389
  • too accustomed, I would say.
  • 00:15:35.422 --> 00:15:38.191
  • They thought this volcanicactivity was the same
  • 00:15:38.225 --> 00:15:40.861
  • as what had always happened.
  • 00:15:40.894 --> 00:15:43.296
  • So many of them thoughtthat the column of smoke
  • 00:15:43.330 --> 00:15:46.133
  • that was coming throughwas the only thing they needed
  • 00:15:46.166 --> 00:15:48.835
  • to be concerned about.
  • 00:15:48.869 --> 00:15:50.203
  • So they decided to closethemselves in their houses
  • 00:15:50.237 --> 00:15:54.307
  • to avoid being harmedby the smoke column,
  • 00:15:54.341 --> 00:15:56.376
  • because, by beinginside their homes,
  • 00:15:56.410 --> 00:15:59.579
  • they didn't realizewhat was coming
  • 00:15:59.613 --> 00:16:01.782
  • behind the column of smoke,the danger that was there.
  • 00:16:01.815 --> 00:16:06.119
  • -John: You know, there arepeople all around the world
  • 00:16:06.153 --> 00:16:07.621

  • 00:16:07.654 --> 00:16:09.656

  • is a young man who losthis entire family
  • 00:16:12.559 --> 00:16:15.695
  • in this volcanic disaster.
  • 00:16:15.729 --> 00:16:18.565
  • All around the world, peopleare going through suffering
  • 00:16:18.598 --> 00:16:20.801
  • of many, many different kinds.
  • 00:16:20.834 --> 00:16:23.904
  • As a pastor, what doyou say to people?
  • 00:16:23.937 --> 00:16:27.507
  • -Interpreter: I would tellthem what Paul said.
  • 00:16:27.541 --> 00:16:32.512
  • You have the right to feel sad,
  • 00:16:32.546 --> 00:16:35.982
  • but not like thosewho don't have hope.
  • 00:16:36.016 --> 00:16:39.820
  • We as Christians, and as thepeople who believe in Jesus
  • 00:16:39.853 --> 00:16:43.623
  • and understand that Jesuswill come again,
  • 00:16:43.657 --> 00:16:45.792
  • have the right to be saddened--
  • 00:16:45.826 --> 00:16:48.295
  • but in a different waybecause there is hope.
  • 00:16:48.328 --> 00:16:51.264
  • And as long as we have hope,our sadness is different
  • 00:16:51.298 --> 00:16:56.570
  • because we knowthat the hope sustains us
  • 00:16:56.603 --> 00:16:58.505
  • with a certain positivitythat we'll be able to see
  • 00:16:58.538 --> 00:17:02.642
  • our loved ones againwhen Jesus Christ comes on high.

  • on It Is Written.
  • 00:17:51.791 --> 00:17:52.759
  • I'm in San Miguel Los Lotes,Guatemala--
  • 00:17:52.792 --> 00:17:56.229
  • or what's left of it--
  • 00:17:56.263 --> 00:17:59.065
  • following the devastatingeruption of Volcán de Fuego
  • 00:17:59.099 --> 00:18:02.135
  • just three weeks ago,as I speak to you.
  • 00:18:02.169 --> 00:18:05.238
  • And you may wonderwhy people stay
  • 00:18:06.840 --> 00:18:09.276
  • when there's dangeron the doorstep.
  • 00:18:09.309 --> 00:18:11.344
  • So why do people stay?
  • 00:18:14.447 --> 00:18:15.849
  • Well, there's acouple of reasons.
  • 00:18:15.882 --> 00:18:17.184
  • One is economics.
  • 00:18:17.217 --> 00:18:19.152
  • This is where they live;it's where their homes are.
  • 00:18:19.186 --> 00:18:21.788
  • This is where land is;this is jobs; it's survival.
  • 00:18:21.821 --> 00:18:24.891
  • It's not that easy justto take off and pick up again.
  • 00:18:24.925 --> 00:18:28.161
  • And the second one is relatedto the first: It's logistics.
  • 00:18:28.195 --> 00:18:32.499
  • So this is a danger zone;it's a well-known danger zone.
  • 00:18:32.532 --> 00:18:35.235
  • But to leave, to gatherup your family,
  • 00:18:35.268 --> 00:18:37.470
  • when you don't havemuch of anything,
  • 00:18:37.504 --> 00:18:39.206
  • to go to another part of thecountry, find new work--
  • 00:18:39.239 --> 00:18:42.676
  • it's just difficult.
  • 00:18:42.709 --> 00:18:44.211
  • There's anotherreason people stay.
  • 00:18:45.212 --> 00:18:46.546
  • It's the same reason that peoplemove to the coast of Florida,
  • 00:18:46.580 --> 00:18:50.016
  • even though it willcertainly be hit
  • 00:18:50.050 --> 00:18:51.685
  • by another major hurricane,
  • 00:18:51.718 --> 00:18:53.119
  • or why people build homes onthe banks of rivers that flood,
  • 00:18:53.153 --> 00:18:56.089
  • or why people live in earthquakecountry in California.
  • 00:18:56.122 --> 00:18:58.658
  • Danger tends to bepredictable to a degree.
  • 00:18:58.692 --> 00:19:01.294
  • You can see a hurricanecoming, so you can prepare.
  • 00:19:01.328 --> 00:19:03.997
  • If floodwaters begin to rise,you can get out--
  • 00:19:04.030 --> 00:19:06.533
  • or at least you hope you can.
  • 00:19:06.566 --> 00:19:07.734
  • And most peoplesurvive earthquakes,
  • 00:19:07.767 --> 00:19:09.903
  • so you hope you'regoing to be lucky.
  • 00:19:09.936 --> 00:19:12.005
  • It's like drivingwithout a seatbelt.
  • 00:19:12.038 --> 00:19:13.707
  • Most people who do itare going to be okay.
  • 00:19:13.740 --> 00:19:15.909
  • But those who aren't okayare going to be really not okay.
  • 00:19:15.942 --> 00:19:20.080
  • If you have to paythe price for your decision,
  • 00:19:20.113 --> 00:19:22.349
  • it's usuallyan incredibly high price.
  • 00:19:22.382 --> 00:19:25.051
  • And then there'sanother reason: familiarity.
  • 00:19:25.085 --> 00:19:27.621
  • You live around danger,and you think,
  • 00:19:27.654 --> 00:19:30.490
  • "It's never goingto happen to me.
  • 00:19:30.523 --> 00:19:32.626
  • It's happened before,and I got away with it.
  • 00:19:32.659 --> 00:19:34.894
  • If it happens again,I'll get away with it then."
  • 00:19:34.928 --> 00:19:37.530
  • And you will--unless,of course, you don't.
  • 00:19:37.564 --> 00:19:41.501
  • Now, here's a question:
  • 00:19:44.504 --> 00:19:46.172
  • Why do people go on livingwhere they do, or how they do,
  • 00:19:46.206 --> 00:19:51.678
  • when there's danger at theirdoorstep spiritually?
  • 00:19:51.711 --> 00:19:55.815
  • It's like people play a sortof spiritual Russian roulette,
  • 00:19:55.849 --> 00:19:58.985
  • taking spiritual risks whenthey ought to be minimizing risk
  • 00:19:59.019 --> 00:20:03.556
  • and maximizing safety.
  • 00:20:03.590 --> 00:20:05.325
  • There are peoplewaiting for a better time
  • 00:20:05.358 --> 00:20:08.428
  • to come to faith in God.
  • 00:20:08.461 --> 00:20:10.463
  • But what if, in the interim,that volcano blows?
  • 00:20:10.497 --> 00:20:13.166
  • What if, what ifyour life comes to an end?
  • 00:20:13.199 --> 00:20:16.636
  • What if Jesus were to return?
  • 00:20:16.670 --> 00:20:18.738
  • What if you were simplyto never get around
  • 00:20:18.772 --> 00:20:21.808
  • to giving your heart to God?
  • 00:20:21.841 --> 00:20:24.010
  • People dabble with sin.
  • 00:20:24.044 --> 00:20:26.046
  • A little "harmless flirting"turns into an attraction,
  • 00:20:26.079 --> 00:20:29.215
  • which leads to bad decisionsand regret and a broken home
  • 00:20:29.249 --> 00:20:32.652
  • and ruined relationships andwith children as the casualties
  • 00:20:32.686 --> 00:20:36.556
  • all because, well,
  • 00:20:36.589 --> 00:20:37.757
  • no one expected itto turn out like this.
  • 00:20:37.791 --> 00:20:39.592
  • But that's how it turns out.
  • 00:20:39.626 --> 00:20:41.861
  • When there's dangeron your doorstep,
  • 00:20:41.895 --> 00:20:43.763
  • when you live on a fault line,you really can't be surprised
  • 00:20:43.797 --> 00:20:47.167
  • when the ground shiftsbeneath your feet.
  • 00:20:47.200 --> 00:20:50.036
  • You know, you justcan't afford to take risks
  • 00:20:50.070 --> 00:20:52.372
  • with your spiritual life.
  • 00:20:52.405 --> 00:20:54.007
  • It's dangerous.
  • 00:20:54.040 --> 00:20:55.508
  • Life is unpredictable.
  • 00:20:55.542 --> 00:20:57.744
  • And while you put Godon hold, don't forget,
  • 00:20:57.777 --> 00:21:00.647
  • you're spurning,
  • 00:21:00.680 --> 00:21:01.715
  • you are saying "no"to the love of God for you.
  • 00:21:01.748 --> 00:21:03.983
  • You're telling Godyou don't want Him in your life.
  • 00:21:04.017 --> 00:21:07.454
  • But here's what happens.
  • 00:21:07.487 --> 00:21:08.388
  • You wait.
  • 00:21:08.421 --> 00:21:09.656
  • "I'll pray another day."
  • 00:21:09.689 --> 00:21:10.657
  • You wait.
  • 00:21:10.690 --> 00:21:11.558
  • "I'll read my Bibleanother day."
  • 00:21:11.591 --> 00:21:13.493
  • And another day comes,and your heart has gone cold.
  • 00:21:13.526 --> 00:21:16.930
  • That desire hasall just bled away.
  • 00:21:16.963 --> 00:21:19.199
  • And now you don't even wantto come to God at all.
  • 00:21:19.232 --> 00:21:25.338
  • Or there are those whoare putting God on hold
  • 00:21:25.372 --> 00:21:27.407
  • because they're pursuingthe things of this world.
  • 00:21:27.440 --> 00:21:30.977
  • They're saying in their hearts,"You know, it's okay.
  • 00:21:31.010 --> 00:21:33.246
  • I know Jesus said it'seasier for a camel to get
  • 00:21:33.279 --> 00:21:35.482
  • through the eye of a needlethan for a rich man
  • 00:21:35.515 --> 00:21:37.183
  • to enter into heaven.
  • 00:21:37.217 --> 00:21:38.318
  • But it's going to be okayfor me. I'll be fine.
  • 00:21:38.351 --> 00:21:41.521
  • I can pursue thatexclusive home I don't need,
  • 00:21:41.554 --> 00:21:44.224
  • that expensive carI can't afford."
  • 00:21:44.257 --> 00:21:47.260
  • You hang in there doing that,and one day you become
  • 00:21:47.293 --> 00:21:49.662
  • living proof that what Paultold Timothy is true:
  • 00:21:49.696 --> 00:21:53.099
  • "The love of money isthe root of all kinds of evil."
  • 00:21:53.133 --> 00:21:57.871
  • We just can't afford to wait.
  • 00:21:57.904 --> 00:21:59.472
  • We can't afford to putanything in front of God.
  • 00:21:59.506 --> 00:22:02.108
  • God calls us to come to Him now.
  • 00:22:02.142 --> 00:22:04.310
  • To do anythingother than to do that--
  • 00:22:04.344 --> 00:22:06.780
  • well, that's like livingon the side of a volcano
  • 00:22:06.813 --> 00:22:08.782
  • and failing to take actionwhen the warnings come.
  • 00:22:08.815 --> 00:22:13.520
  • The reason Lot got himselfinto so much trouble
  • 00:22:13.553 --> 00:22:16.322
  • in Sodom and Gomorrahis that he made
  • 00:22:16.356 --> 00:22:18.324
  • a very risky spiritual decision.
  • 00:22:18.358 --> 00:22:21.394
  • Thinking he'd be okay,
  • 00:22:21.428 --> 00:22:23.596
  • he chose to live near thosevery wicked cities.
  • 00:22:23.630 --> 00:22:27.400
  • The Bible saysin Genesis 13 and verse 12,
  • 00:22:27.434 --> 00:22:30.437
  • "Abram dwelledin the land of Canaan,
  • 00:22:30.470 --> 00:22:32.705
  • and Lot dwelledin the cities of the plain,
  • 00:22:32.739 --> 00:22:35.442
  • and pitched his tenttoward Sodom."
  • 00:22:35.475 --> 00:22:38.812
  • Yes, it's true Lot made itout of Sodom alive,
  • 00:22:38.845 --> 00:22:41.648
  • but his wife didn't.
  • 00:22:41.681 --> 00:22:43.149
  • His sons-in-law didn't.
  • 00:22:43.183 --> 00:22:44.851
  • And while his daughterscame out of Sodom,
  • 00:22:44.884 --> 00:22:48.621
  • it's pretty obviousthat the spirit of Sodom
  • 00:22:48.655 --> 00:22:51.391
  • didn't come out of them.
  • 00:22:51.424 --> 00:22:53.593
  • James 4:7 says, "Submityourselves therefore to God.
  • 00:22:53.626 --> 00:22:57.597
  • Resist the devil,and he will flee from you."
  • 00:22:57.630 --> 00:23:01.401
  • "Resist" is what James wrote.
  • 00:23:01.434 --> 00:23:03.970
  • In other words,make some good decisions.
  • 00:23:04.003 --> 00:23:06.372
  • Be proactivein order to safeguard
  • 00:23:06.406 --> 00:23:09.042
  • your spiritual well-being.
  • 00:23:09.075 --> 00:23:10.877
  • You do that in otherareas of your life.
  • 00:23:10.910 --> 00:23:12.846
  • People make decisionsproactively to safeguard
  • 00:23:12.879 --> 00:23:15.482
  • and preserve their health.
  • 00:23:15.515 --> 00:23:17.283
  • We do that to preserveour well-being, our homes,
  • 00:23:17.317 --> 00:23:19.986
  • our possessions.
  • 00:23:20.019 --> 00:23:21.321
  • That's why you lock your car.It's why you lock your house.
  • 00:23:21.354 --> 00:23:25.458
  • But what decisions areyou making proactively
  • 00:23:25.492 --> 00:23:28.695
  • to guard yourself spiritually?
  • 00:23:28.728 --> 00:23:31.798
  • Now, let's make surewe're not getting the cart
  • 00:23:31.831 --> 00:23:33.533
  • before the horse.
  • 00:23:33.566 --> 00:23:34.834
  • James wrote, "Resist the devil,and he will flee from you."
  • 00:23:34.868 --> 00:23:39.806
  • But where do you getthe power to resist?
  • 00:23:39.839 --> 00:23:42.141
  • Where does thatstrength come from?
  • 00:23:42.175 --> 00:23:44.043
  • Right before hewrote that, he said,
  • 00:23:44.077 --> 00:23:47.614
  • "Submit yourselftherefore to God."
  • 00:23:47.647 --> 00:23:51.050
  • Submit.
  • 00:23:51.084 --> 00:23:51.885
  • That's to surrender.That's to yield.
  • 00:23:51.918 --> 00:23:55.755
  • And when yousubmit yourself to God,
  • 00:23:55.788 --> 00:23:58.091
  • God moves into your life,
  • 00:23:58.124 --> 00:23:59.726
  • and He occupiesyour whole heart.
  • 00:23:59.759 --> 00:24:01.761
  • Angels become yourattendants, your helpers,
  • 00:24:01.794 --> 00:24:04.864
  • and the Holy Spirit providesthe power that you need
  • 00:24:04.898 --> 00:24:07.834
  • to keep from eviland to remain in the will
  • 00:24:07.867 --> 00:24:11.838
  • and in the heart of God.
  • 00:24:11.871 --> 00:24:13.506
  • First John 5 and verse 12 says,
  • 00:24:13.540 --> 00:24:15.508
  • "He [or she] that haththe Son of God hath life."
  • 00:24:15.542 --> 00:24:18.945
  • That's where the strength is--when you have Jesus.
  • 00:24:18.978 --> 00:24:21.981
  • How do you have Jesus?
  • 00:24:22.015 --> 00:24:23.249
  • You surrender.You yield.
  • 00:24:23.283 --> 00:24:25.151
  • You offer your heart to him,
  • 00:24:25.184 --> 00:24:27.453
  • and He takes it,and He makes it yours.
  • 00:24:27.487 --> 00:24:31.224
  • Surrender.
  • 00:24:31.257 --> 00:24:32.525
  • Have you surrendered?
  • 00:24:32.559 --> 00:24:34.394
  • If you haven't,can you do it now?
  • 00:24:34.427 --> 00:24:37.163
