  • - FIRST OF ALL, BOBBY, WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:00:54.090 --> 00:00:56.100
  • WE'RE GOING TO UNPACK IT THE WHOLE ONE HOUR.
  • 00:00:56.120 --> 00:00:59.030
  • WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT TONIGHT?
  • 00:00:59.050 --> 00:01:00.170
  • - SO TONIGHT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT SOMETHING
  • 00:01:00.190 --> 00:01:02.120
  • THAT REALLY APPEALS TO EVERYONE.
  • 00:01:02.140 --> 00:01:04.160
  • TONIGHT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE GREATEST
  • 00:01:04.180 --> 00:01:06.020
  • HUMAN NEED.
  • 00:01:06.040 --> 00:01:07.090
  • AND THE GREATEST HUMAN NEED IS TO BOND WITH
  • 00:01:07.110 --> 00:01:09.070
  • OTHERS AND TO BOND WITH GOD, THAT YOU HAVE MORE
  • 00:01:09.090 --> 00:01:12.090
  • THAN JUST A FRIENDSHIP, MORE THAN JUST A
  • 00:01:12.110 --> 00:01:13.220
  • RELATIONSHIP, THAT THERE'S A DEEP, DEEP LOVE
  • 00:01:13.240 --> 00:01:16.170
  • BETWEEN YOU AND A FRIEND, YOUR SPOUSE, YOUR FAMILY,
  • 00:01:16.190 --> 00:01:19.140
  • AND A SPECIALLY WITH GOD.
  • 00:01:19.160 --> 00:01:20.280
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE NUMBER ONE
  • 00:01:21.000 --> 00:01:22.170
  • THING THAT GETS IN THE WAY?
  • 00:01:22.190 --> 00:01:23.260
  • THAT IS HUSTLING FOR WORTHINESS, THAT IS
  • 00:01:23.280 --> 00:01:26.010
  • TRYING TO PROVE OURSELVES THROUGH HOW WE LOOK,
  • 00:01:26.030 --> 00:01:28.040
  • THROUGH OUR ACHIEVEMENTS, THROUGH THE MONEY THAT WE
  • 00:01:28.060 --> 00:01:30.220
  • EARN, THROUGH OUR REPUTATION, THROUGH OUR
  • 00:01:30.240 --> 00:01:33.060
  • INSTAGRAM FOLLOWERS OR WHATEVER IT IS, TRYING TO
  • 00:01:33.080 --> 00:01:36.040
  • FIND VALUE IN THINGS OTHER THAN JUST BEING
  • 00:01:36.060 --> 00:01:38.290
  • GOD'S BELOVED SONS AND DAUGHTERS.
  • 00:01:39.010 --> 00:01:41.090
  • SO FOR US WHEN WE DON'T DO THAT, WE DON'T BOND
  • 00:01:41.110 --> 00:01:45.090
  • DEEPLY WITH OTHERS, WHEN WE'RE CONSTANTLY HUSTLING
  • 00:01:45.110 --> 00:01:47.170
  • FOR WORTHINESS, SOMETHING HAPPENS ON THE INSIDE.
  • 00:01:47.190 --> 00:01:51.030
  • WE BEGIN TO FEEL LIKE NUMB, LIKE EMOTIONALLY
  • 00:01:51.050 --> 00:01:54.090
  • AND SPIRITUALLY NUMB.
  • 00:01:54.110 --> 00:01:55.150
  • SOMETIMES WE STILL FEEL HAPPY.
  • 00:01:55.170 --> 00:01:57.080
  • WE CAN STILL HAVE FUN.
  • 00:01:57.100 --> 00:01:58.200
  • WE STILL HAVE FRIENDS.
  • 00:01:58.220 --> 00:02:00.120
  • BUT THERE'S THIS THING LIKE, LIKE ON THE INSIDE,
  • 00:02:00.140 --> 00:02:02.180
  • LIKE WHY DO I FEEL NUMB?
  • 00:02:02.200 --> 00:02:03.290
  • WHY DO I FEEL LIKE YEAH REAL JOY?
  • 00:02:04.010 --> 00:02:07.010
  • AND THE ANSWER IS YOUR HUSTLING FOR WORTHINESS,
  • 00:02:07.030 --> 00:02:09.290
  • THAT WE'RE TRYING TO FIND OUR VALUE In OUR
  • 00:02:10.010 --> 00:02:13.010
  • ACHIEVEMENTS AND TITLES AND WHAT WE DO,
  • 00:02:13.030 --> 00:02:14.150
  • AND OUR TROPHIES.
  • 00:02:14.170 --> 00:02:16.110
  • AND SO AT THE CORE OF THE GOSPEL IS LEARNING TO LET
  • 00:02:16.130 --> 00:02:18.230
  • GO OF THOSE THINGS, AND TO SPECIALLY, AND THIS IS
  • 00:02:18.250 --> 00:02:22.260
  • A BIG PART OF BEING IN A CHURCH, TO FIND PEOPLE IN
  • 00:02:22.280 --> 00:02:25.270
  • OUR LIVES THAT WE CAN BE TRULY VULNERABLE WITH AND
  • 00:02:25.290 --> 00:02:28.110
  • SAY HERE'S MY DOUBTS, HERE'S MY FEARS, HERE'S
  • 00:02:28.130 --> 00:02:31.130
  • MY FAILURES, HERE'S MY DISAPPOINTMENTS, HERE ARE
  • 00:02:31.150 --> 00:02:34.270
  • ALL THE PLACES I THOUGHT I'D BE AT THIS STAGE AT
  • 00:02:34.290 --> 00:02:37.120
  • MY LIFE AND I'M NOT.
  • 00:02:37.140 --> 00:02:39.280
  • HERE'S ALL THE WAYS I'M ANGRY AT GOD.
  • 00:02:40.000 --> 00:02:41.160
  • HERE'S THE WAY I'M ANGRY AT MY SPOUSE OR WHATEVER.
  • 00:02:41.180 --> 00:02:44.230
  • AND THEN TO RECEIVE FROM THAT PERSON LOVE,
  • 00:02:44.250 --> 00:02:48.060
  • COMPASSION, AND THEN MAYBE THEY'LL SPILL THEIR
  • 00:02:48.080 --> 00:02:50.210
  • BEANS, TOO.
  • 00:02:50.230 --> 00:02:51.270
  • I FEEL THAT WAY, TOO!
  • 00:02:51.290 --> 00:02:52.280
  • OF COURSE YOU FEEL THAT WAY!
  • 00:02:53.000 --> 00:02:54.090
  • I STRUGGLE WITH THIS, TOO.
  • 00:02:54.110 --> 00:02:55.200
  • AND IT'S AMAZING HOW -- MEN DO THIS A LOT, BUT IN
  • 00:02:55.220 --> 00:02:58.140
  • GENERAL HOW PEOPLE WILL PUT WALLS UP, STONE WALL,
  • 00:02:58.160 --> 00:03:01.250
  • PROTECT, BECAUSE WE THINK IF THEY SEE, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:03:01.270 --> 00:03:05.040
  • ALL MY WEAKNESSES THEN THEY'LL THINK I'M WEAK.
  • 00:03:05.060 --> 00:03:07.010
  • BUT IN TRUTH WHEN WE SHOW OUR WEAKNESSES WE'RE
  • 00:03:07.030 --> 00:03:09.230
  • ACTUALLY MUCH STRONGER.
  • 00:03:09.250 --> 00:03:11.010
  • - WELL, THAT TAKES A LOT OF TRUST IN SOMEBODY.
  • 00:03:11.030 --> 00:03:14.050
  • - IT SURE DOES.
  • 00:03:14.070 --> 00:03:15.190
  • - SO WE NEED TO LEARN TO TRUST, LEARN TO BOND, RIGHT?
  • 00:03:15.210 --> 00:03:19.290
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:03:20.010 --> 00:03:21.080
  • BUT THAT'S WHY THE GOSPEL IS SO IMPORTANT TO THIS
  • 00:03:21.100 --> 00:03:22.290
  • PROCESS BECAUSE THE VERY FIRST THING THAT HAS TO
  • 00:03:23.010 --> 00:03:25.060
  • HAPPEN IS WE HAVE TO RECEIVE THE GOSPEL OF
  • 00:03:25.080 --> 00:03:27.000
  • JESUS CHRIST WHICH SAYS WE'RE NOT SAVED BY OF OUR
  • 00:03:27.020 --> 00:03:29.150
  • WORKS, BY OUR ACHIEVEMENTS, EVEN BY
  • 00:03:29.170 --> 00:03:30.270
  • OUR MORALS.
  • 00:03:30.290 --> 00:03:32.040
  • WE'RE SAVED BY THE CROSS AND RESURRECTION, AND
  • 00:03:32.060 --> 00:03:33.180
  • WHEN THAT HAPPENS AND WE TAKE WHAT JESUS SAYS ON
  • 00:03:33.200 --> 00:03:35.110
  • THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT TO HEART, THAT IS TO NOT
  • 00:03:35.130 --> 00:03:37.230
  • PROVE OURSELVES TO OTHERS, TO NOT DO OUR
  • 00:03:37.250 --> 00:03:39.100
  • WORKS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR OTHERS, TO NOT PRAY
  • 00:03:39.120 --> 00:03:42.080
  • SO PEOPLE SEE US PRAYING, TO SHOW THEM HOW
  • 00:03:42.100 --> 00:03:44.080
  • HOLY WE ARE.
  • 00:03:44.100 --> 00:03:45.200
  • WE JUST BECOME LIKE THE TAX COLLECTOR, LIKE THE
  • 00:03:45.220 --> 00:03:47.180
  • PROSTITUTE, LIKE THE WOMAN WASHING JESUS, FEET.
  • 00:03:47.200 --> 00:03:50.050
  • YOU KNOW, WE'RE BEAT UP, WE'RE BROKEN, BUT WE'RE
  • 00:03:50.070 --> 00:03:52.210
  • HUMAN, AND WE SAY GOD, THIS IS WHERE WE ARE.
  • 00:03:52.230 --> 00:03:54.060
  • WE CAN'T BOND WITH OTHERS UNTIL WE HAVE THE INNER
  • 00:03:54.080 --> 00:03:56.070
  • STRENGTH THAT COMES THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:03:56.090 --> 00:03:58.020
  • THROUGH THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:03:58.040 --> 00:03:59.060
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:03:59.080 --> 00:04:00.140
  • BOBBY, WHERE DID THIS SUBJECT COME FROM?
  • 00:04:00.160 --> 00:04:04.050
  • YOU GOT TO KIND OF WIND IT BACK.
  • 00:04:04.070 --> 00:04:05.230
  • - SURE.
  • 00:04:05.250 --> 00:04:07.110
  • - YOU'RE, YOU KNOW, YOUNG, GOOD LOOKING, THIN.
  • 00:04:07.130 --> 00:04:10.150
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:04:10.170 --> 00:04:13.000
  • - SINCE HANNAH IS NOT HERE WE'LL TELL HIM ALL
  • 00:04:13.020 --> 00:04:14.250
  • THAT GOOD STUFF.
  • 00:04:14.270 --> 00:04:15.250
  • YOU LOOK GREAT.
  • 00:04:15.270 --> 00:04:17.070
  • - YOU'RE SWEET, MATT.
  • 00:04:17.090 --> 00:04:18.260
  • - YOU HAVE PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS ARE WERE
  • 00:04:18.280 --> 00:04:21.280
  • VERY SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE.
  • 00:04:22.000 --> 00:04:23.080
  • SO WHERE DID THIS COME FROM?
  • 00:04:23.100 --> 00:04:25.200
  • WHAT WAS DAY ONE OF WHAT THIS BOOK IS AND BECAME?
  • 00:04:25.220 --> 00:04:30.150
  • - SURE.
  • 00:04:30.170 --> 00:04:31.220
  • THIS HAPPENS TO ALL OF US WHEN WE'RE KIDS.
  • 00:04:31.240 --> 00:04:33.150
  • DID YOU KNOW THE AVERAGE CHILD SMELLS 400 TIMES A DAY.
  • 00:04:33.170 --> 00:04:37.110
  • THE AVERAGE ADULT SMELLS 20 TEEMS A DAY.
  • 00:04:37.130 --> 00:04:39.060
  • WHAT HAPPENS?
  • 00:04:39.080 --> 00:04:40.270
  • AND I THINK THAT ANY HUMAN BEING AS A CHILD
  • 00:04:40.290 --> 00:04:44.150
  • BEGINS TO LEARN THINGS THAT AREN'T TRUE, THAT MY
  • 00:04:44.170 --> 00:04:47.230
  • VALUE AS A HUMAN BEINGS IS WHEN I DO THESE GOOD
  • 00:04:47.250 --> 00:04:50.140
  • THINGS FOR MY PARENTS.
  • 00:04:50.160 --> 00:04:51.270
  • MY VALUE AS A HUMAN BEING IS WHEN THIS LITTLE GROUP
  • 00:04:51.290 --> 00:04:54.200
  • ACCEPTS ME FOR-IN SOME GROUPS HERE IN L.A.
  • 00:04:54.220 --> 00:04:58.040
  • AND ORANGE COUNTY FOR BEING VIOLENT.
  • 00:04:58.060 --> 00:04:59.220
  • OR THIS GROUP ACCEPTS ME OR BEING BEAUTIFUL, OR
  • 00:04:59.240 --> 00:05:01.260
  • THIS GROUP ACCEPTS ME FOR BEING INTO WHATEVER,
  • 00:05:01.280 --> 00:05:04.160
  • SURFING OR WHATEVER, CERTAIN TYPE OF MUSIC.
  • 00:05:04.180 --> 00:05:07.190
  • SO WE FIND THESE LABELS AND THESE WAYS OF
  • 00:05:07.210 --> 00:05:09.180
  • BELONGING, SO WE LEARN FROM A YOUNG AGE THAT IF
  • 00:05:09.200 --> 00:05:13.100
  • I HAVE CERTAIN THINGS IN MY LIFE, I BELONG TO A
  • 00:05:13.120 --> 00:05:15.010
  • CERTAIN GROUP.
  • 00:05:15.030 --> 00:05:16.090
  • BUT IF I LOSE THOSE THINGS, I DON'T
  • 00:05:16.110 --> 00:05:17.080
  • BELONG ANYMORE.
  • 00:05:17.100 --> 00:05:18.140
  • WELL, THAT IS THE GREATEST HUMAN NEED IS TO
  • 00:05:18.160 --> 00:05:19.250
  • BELONG, IS TO BOND, TO KNOW THAT I MATTER.
  • 00:05:19.270 --> 00:05:23.040
  • AND AT THE HEART OF THE GOSPEL, JESUS SAYS TO ALL
  • 00:05:23.060 --> 00:05:26.020
  • OF US, ALL OF THOSE THINGS DON'T MATTER.
  • 00:05:26.040 --> 00:05:28.290
  • WHAT MATTERS IS THAT YOU WERE BORN, THAT YOU
  • 00:05:29.010 --> 00:05:31.070
  • EXIST, THAT YOU'RE MY BELOVED CHILD, AND I
  • 00:05:31.090 --> 00:05:33.140
  • TRULY DO LOVE YOU.
  • 00:05:33.160 --> 00:05:34.230
  • - AND THAT WE BELONG TO HIM.
  • 00:05:34.250 --> 00:05:36.030
  • - WE DO LONG TO HIM.
  • 00:05:36.050 --> 00:05:37.100
  • AND FOR ME -SO WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE LEAN INTO
  • 00:05:37.120 --> 00:05:40.250
  • PROVING OURSELVES TOO MUCH WE BECOME NUMB.
  • 00:05:40.270 --> 00:05:43.210
  • WE RUN OUT OF ENERGY.
  • 00:05:43.230 --> 00:05:44.290
  • WE FEEL -WE DON'T HAVE VISION ANYMORE.
  • 00:05:45.010 --> 00:05:47.160
  • AND THEN WE DOUBLE DOWN ON THIS LIKE PROVING
  • 00:05:47.180 --> 00:05:49.220
  • OURSELVES TO OTHERS, SO FOR ME AS A GUY, TALKING
  • 00:05:49.240 --> 00:05:52.090
  • ABOUT EMOTIONS AND ALL THE STUFF -I MEAN, I WAS
  • 00:05:52.110 --> 00:05:54.170
  • A RIGHT-WING IN HOCKEY.
  • 00:05:54.190 --> 00:05:55.250
  • I LEAD THE LEAGUE FOR MOST MINUTES IN THE
  • 00:05:55.270 --> 00:05:58.060
  • PENALTY BOX, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:05:58.080 --> 00:05:59.180
  • I'M A GUY, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:05:59.200 --> 00:06:01.030
  • AND SO FOR ME THIS PROVING MYSELF,
  • 00:06:01.050 --> 00:06:04.090
  • ACHIEVEMENT, YOU KNOW, AND BECOMING EMOTIONALLY
  • 00:06:04.110 --> 00:06:06.280
  • ALIVE WAS AN AMAZING THING FOR ME.
  • 00:06:07.000 --> 00:06:08.280
  • AND ONE OF THE TIMES I REALIZED THIS MOST IS I
  • 00:06:09.000 --> 00:06:13.170
  • WAS LEARNING TO BE MORE VULNERABLE WITH MY
  • 00:06:13.190 --> 00:06:15.000
  • FRIENDS AND WITH MY WIFE, HANNAH, AND OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:06:15.020 --> 00:06:18.110
  • AND WHAT WE FORGET IS THERE IS THIS UNCONSCIOUS
  • 00:06:18.130 --> 00:06:22.140
  • PART OF OUR BRAIN AND OUR MIND THAT IS RUNNING MOST
  • 00:06:22.160 --> 00:06:26.150
  • OF OUR LIVES FOR US.
  • 00:06:26.170 --> 00:06:28.190
  • FOR EXAMPLE, LIKE WHEN YOU DROVE HERE, YOU
  • 00:06:28.210 --> 00:06:30.280
  • DIDN'T THINK ABOUT DRIVING.
  • 00:06:31.000 --> 00:06:33.130
  • YOU WEREN'T LIKE OKAY, I'VE GOT TO LIKE TURN
  • 00:06:33.150 --> 00:06:35.150
  • RIGHT AND BY DOING THAT I PUT ONE HAND
  • 00:06:35.170 --> 00:06:36.280
  • OVER THE ANOTHER.
  • 00:06:37.000 --> 00:06:38.060
  • YOU DON'T THINK OF ALL THE MECHANICS OF DRIVING.
  • 00:06:38.080 --> 00:06:39.130
  • IF YOU'VE BEEN DRIVING FOR A LONG TIME, DRIVING
  • 00:06:39.150 --> 00:06:40.230
  • IS JUST LIKE THIS NORMAL THING FOR YOU.
  • 00:06:40.250 --> 00:06:43.160
  • AND SO YOU CAN BE DRIVING HERE DOING STUFF THAT,
  • 00:06:43.180 --> 00:06:46.290
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU FIRST LEARNING TO DRIVE WOULD
  • 00:06:47.010 --> 00:06:48.130
  • BE VERY DIFFICULT, BUT NOW YOU'RE THINKING ABOUT
  • 00:06:48.150 --> 00:06:50.050
  • WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO EAT FOR DINNER OR WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:06:50.070 --> 00:06:51.220
  • GOING TO DO TOMORROW.
  • 00:06:51.240 --> 00:06:53.000
  • SO YOUR UNCONSCIOUS PART OF YOUR MIND IS DRIVING
  • 00:06:53.020 --> 00:06:54.150
  • YOUR CAR FOR YOU.
  • 00:06:54.170 --> 00:06:55.210
  • - SCARY THOUGHT.
  • 00:06:55.230 --> 00:06:57.080
  • - YEAH, YEAH.
  • 00:06:57.100 --> 00:06:58.160
  • BUT YOU'RE UNCONSCIOUS MIND IS DOING THIS ALL
  • 00:06:58.180 --> 00:06:59.140
  • THE TIME.
  • 00:06:59.160 --> 00:07:01.000
  • IT'S HAPPENING ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:07:01.020 --> 00:07:02.120
  • WE DON'T REALIZE IS THAT THIS UNCONSCIOUS PART OF
  • 00:07:02.140 --> 00:07:04.200
  • OUR MIND HAS THESE VOICES, THESE THINGS THAT
  • 00:07:04.220 --> 00:07:08.000
  • WE LEARNED THROUGH OUR LIFE, THROUGH OUR
  • 00:07:08.020 --> 00:07:10.140
  • SUFFERING, AND IT'S WAYS THAT WE'VE DEALT WITH
  • 00:07:10.160 --> 00:07:12.150
  • THAT SUFFERING, AND THOSE VOICES WE MAY SAY ALOUD
  • 00:07:12.170 --> 00:07:14.150
  • GOD'S LOVES ME, BUT INSIDE SECRETLY WE REALLY
  • 00:07:14.170 --> 00:07:17.070
  • BELIEVE GOD LOVES ME ONLY LOVES ME WHEN I DO GOOD.
  • 00:07:17.090 --> 00:07:19.110
  • OR ON THE OUTSIDE WE SAY I BELONG IN MY FAMILY, BUT ON
  • 00:07:19.130 --> 00:07:23.210
  • THE INSIDE IT'S LIKE I ONLY BELONG IN MY FAMILY
  • 00:07:23.230 --> 00:07:25.010
  • IF I DO X, Y AND Z.
  • 00:07:25.030 --> 00:07:27.040
  • ON THE OUTSIDE I SAY, WELL -WE MIGHT SAY I'M
  • 00:07:27.060 --> 00:07:30.210
  • IMPORTANT, I MATTER, I HAVE VALUE, BUT ON THE
  • 00:07:30.230 --> 00:07:32.140
  • INSIDE ONLY IF YOU SUCCEED AT YOUR JOB.
  • 00:07:32.160 --> 00:07:34.190
  • AND SO WHAT HAPPENS IS THAT UNDERGIRDING VOICE
  • 00:07:34.210 --> 00:07:36.220
  • IS ERODING OUR SENSE OF BELONGING AND IT IS
  • 00:07:36.240 --> 00:07:40.020
  • FUELING ALL THE STUFF WE DO TO PROVE OURSELVES TO
  • 00:07:40.040 --> 00:07:43.160
  • OTHERS SO WE CAN HAVE LIFE THAT MATTERS, AND IN
  • 00:07:43.180 --> 00:07:45.210
  • THE END IT'S CHASING A CARROT.
  • 00:07:45.230 --> 00:07:47.210
  • WE'LL NEVER CATCH IT.
  • 00:07:47.230 --> 00:07:49.220
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO THAT YOUR WHOLE LIFE.
  • 00:07:49.240 --> 00:07:50.290
  • AND WHEN I REALIZED THIS FOR ME, IT WAS ABOUT 8
  • 00:07:51.010 --> 00:07:52.190
  • YEARS AGO, I WAS DRIVING IN A CAR WITH MY WIFE HANNAH.
  • 00:07:52.210 --> 00:07:55.160
  • - UNCONSCIOUSLY.
  • 00:07:55.180 --> 00:07:57.200
  • - UNCONSCIOUSLY.
  • 00:07:57.220 --> 00:07:59.050
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:07:59.070 --> 00:07:59.280
  • THAT'S FUNNY, LAURIE.
  • 00:08:00.020 --> 00:08:01.020
  • - SORRY.
  • 00:08:01.040 --> 00:08:02.040
  • - THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:08:02.060 --> 00:08:03.080
  • AND I WAS TELLING HER A STORY.
  • 00:08:03.100 --> 00:08:04.200
  • THIS IS WHEN I REALIZED THESE TWO PARTS OF THE MIND.
  • 00:08:04.220 --> 00:08:06.050
  • I WAS TELLING HER A STORY THAT CONSCIOUSLY
  • 00:08:06.070 --> 00:08:08.050
  • WAS HILARIOUS.
  • 00:08:08.070 --> 00:08:09.190
  • IT WAS A VERY FUNNY STORY ABOUT A TIME I WAS CLUMSY
  • 00:08:09.210 --> 00:08:12.280
  • AND MESSED UP AND A RELATIVE IN MY FAMILY
  • 00:08:13.000 --> 00:08:15.150
  • THAT I REALLY LOOKED UP TO SAID SOMETHING TO ME,
  • 00:08:15.170 --> 00:08:19.270
  • AND I THOUGHT IT WAS HILARIOUS BECAUSE
  • 00:08:19.290 --> 00:08:21.120
  • HE WAS SO MAD.
  • 00:08:21.140 --> 00:08:22.180
  • SO CONSCIOUSLY I'M TELLING THIS FUNNY STORY.
  • 00:08:22.200 --> 00:08:24.120
  • I'M LITERALLY LAUGHING AS I'M TELLING IT.
  • 00:08:24.140 --> 00:08:25.220
  • IT LITERALLY WAS FUNNY.
  • 00:08:25.240 --> 00:08:27.000
  • AS I SAID TO THE SEND I SAID, SO I DID THIS
  • 00:08:27.020 --> 00:08:29.140
  • THING, AND I TURNED TO ME AND I CALL ME A -- AND I'M
  • 00:08:29.160 --> 00:08:33.060
  • LAUGHING AS I SAID HE CALL ME A -- AND I LOCKED UP.
  • 00:08:33.080 --> 00:08:36.290
  • MY CHEST, MY NECK, MY FACE, HE CALLED ME A -- AND
  • 00:08:37.010 --> 00:08:42.100
  • THEN I JUST STARTED WEEPING.
  • 00:08:42.120 --> 00:08:43.270
  • - WOW.
  • 00:08:43.290 --> 00:08:45.070
  • - AND HE CALLED ME AN S HEAD.
  • 00:08:45.090 --> 00:08:47.170
  • AND WHEN I REALIZED IS WHEN I WAS A KID, WHEN I
  • 00:08:47.190 --> 00:08:50.070
  • WAS 9 YEARS OLD OR TEN YEARS OLD WHEN THIS
  • 00:08:50.090 --> 00:08:51.230
  • HAPPENED, CONSCIOUSLY I'D BEEN CARRYING THIS AS A
  • 00:08:51.250 --> 00:08:54.260
  • FUNNY MEMORY, BUT UNCONSCIOUSLY THERE WAS A
  • 00:08:54.280 --> 00:08:57.070
  • WOUND AS A CHILD THAT I WAS AN UNWANTED S HEAD SO
  • 00:08:57.090 --> 00:08:59.160
  • THIS PHRASE WAS GOING AROUND IN MY HEAD AND I'D
  • 00:08:59.180 --> 00:09:03.020
  • NEVER SHARED THE STORY WITH ANYBODY.
  • 00:09:03.040 --> 00:09:04.160
  • AND AS I WAS SHARING IT TO HANNAH, I WAS WEEPING.
  • 00:09:04.180 --> 00:09:08.030
  • AND I'M NOT SOMEONE WHO CRIES VERY OFTEN.
  • 00:09:08.050 --> 00:09:09.140
  • WEEPING AND WEEPING.
  • 00:09:09.160 --> 00:09:10.200
  • AND SHE COMFORTED ME AND GAVE ME EMPATHY.
  • 00:09:10.220 --> 00:09:13.190
  • BUT IT TROUBLED ME FOR WEEKS BECAUSE I THOUGHT
  • 00:09:13.210 --> 00:09:16.170
  • -- AM I GOING CRAZY?
  • 00:09:16.190 --> 00:09:18.190
  • WHAT IS HAPPENING THERE?
  • 00:09:18.210 --> 00:09:19.290
  • AND ACTUALLY TALKING TO FRIENDS WHO ARE IN THIS
  • 00:09:20.010 --> 00:09:21.210
  • WORLD WAS RECOGNIZING THAT IT WAS ACTUALLY A
  • 00:09:21.230 --> 00:09:23.190
  • PART OF COMING EMOTIONALLY ALIVE, THAT I
  • 00:09:23.210 --> 00:09:25.220
  • WAS REALIZING THAT PART OF MY LIFE NEEDED
  • 00:09:25.240 --> 00:09:28.080
  • TO BE HEALED.
  • 00:09:28.100 --> 00:09:29.220
  • AS AN ADULT I THOUGHT IT WAS FUNNY, BUT AS A
  • 00:09:29.240 --> 00:09:31.260
  • CHILD IT REALLY HURT.
  • 00:09:31.280 --> 00:09:33.180
  • SO MANY OF US WE CARRY THESE VOICES THAT WERE
  • 00:09:33.200 --> 00:09:35.260
  • SAID TO US, AND IT COULD HAVE COME
  • 00:09:35.280 --> 00:09:37.060
  • FROM OUR PARENTS.
  • 00:09:37.080 --> 00:09:38.130
  • IT COULD HAVE COME FROM OUR FRIENDS.
  • 00:09:38.150 --> 00:09:39.210
  • IT DOESN'T MEAN WE HAVE BAD PARENTS OR A BAD
  • 00:09:39.230 --> 00:09:40.200
  • FAMILY OR WE HAVE BAD FRIENDS.
  • 00:09:40.220 --> 00:09:42.270
  • BUT WE RECEIVE THESE MESSAGES SOMETIMES
  • 00:09:42.290 --> 00:09:44.160
  • UNINTENTIONALLY.
  • 00:09:44.180 --> 00:09:45.250
  • SOMETIMES WE MISUNDERSTAND THINGS, BUT
  • 00:09:45.270 --> 00:09:47.180
  • NONETHELESS WE BELIEVE THAT I DON'T BELONG, I
  • 00:09:47.200 --> 00:09:51.200
  • DON'T MATTER.
  • 00:09:51.220 --> 00:09:52.240
  • SO I'M GOING TO MAKE MY LIFE MATTER.
  • 00:09:52.260 --> 00:09:54.290
  • I'M GOING TO MAKE IT WHERE I BELONG.
  • 00:09:55.010 --> 00:09:56.150
  • I'M GOING TO MAKE IT WHERE I'M WANTED.
  • 00:09:56.170 --> 00:09:58.080
  • AND GOD JUST SAYS TO US, MY BELOVED CHILD, OH, I
  • 00:09:58.100 --> 00:10:01.120
  • LOVE YOU SO MUCH.
  • 00:10:01.140 --> 00:10:03.070
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO HUSTLE FOR WORTHINESS.
  • 00:10:03.090 --> 00:10:04.230
  • YOU BELONG TO ME.
  • 00:10:04.250 --> 00:10:06.100
  • AND WE CAN SAY IT TO HIM IN PRAYER, ABbA, I
  • 00:10:06.120 --> 00:10:08.230
  • BELONG TO YOU.
  • 00:10:08.250 --> 00:10:10.070
  • ABBA, I BELONG TO YOU.
  • 00:10:10.090 --> 00:10:11.180
  • AND THAT PRAYER RENEWS AND RESTORES OUR SOUL.
  • 00:10:11.200 --> 00:10:15.220
  • AND THAT'S THE THING WE NEED MOST IN LIFE.
  • 00:10:15.240 --> 00:10:17.090
  • - YOU KNOW, BOBBY -- [APPLAUSE] EVERYBODY
  • 00:10:17.110 --> 00:10:19.280
  • NEEDS THIS MESSAGE.
  • 00:10:20.000 --> 00:10:22.130
  • EVERYBODY NEEDS TO HEAR THAT BECAUSE WE'VE HAD
  • 00:10:22.150 --> 00:10:26.180
  • HOW MANY THINGS SPOKEN TO US, SPOKEN OVER US,
  • 00:10:26.200 --> 00:10:29.230
  • HEARING OTHER PEOPLE TALK ABOUT YOU, YOU KNOW, WHAT
  • 00:10:29.250 --> 00:10:32.240
  • THEY OBSERVE, HOW THEY THINK YOU ARE.
  • 00:10:32.260 --> 00:10:37.240
  • AND ALL OF THAT GOES IN, AND TO GET RID OF THAT
  • 00:10:37.260 --> 00:10:40.200
  • AND TO KNOW WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT US, THAT WE DON'T
  • 00:10:40.220 --> 00:10:44.090
  • HAVE TO PROVE OURSELVES.
  • 00:10:44.110 --> 00:10:45.180
  • WE DON'T HAVE TO EARN HIS LOVE.
  • 00:10:45.200 --> 00:10:46.240
  • - THAT'S RIGHT. YEAH.
  • 00:10:46.260 --> 00:10:48.050
  • AND THAT'S WHAT I'M TRYING TO GET AT IN THE
  • 00:10:48.070 --> 00:10:49.240
  • BOOK IS I'M ACTUALLY TEACHING PEOPLE HOW TO
  • 00:10:49.260 --> 00:10:51.030
  • TRAIN THE UNCONSCIOUS PART OF THE MIND BECAUSE
  • 00:10:51.050 --> 00:10:52.290
  • I FEEL LIKE WE HEAR ALL THE TIME IN CHURCH OH,
  • 00:10:53.010 --> 00:10:54.110
  • GOD LOVES YOU, GOD LOVES YOU, GOD LOVES IS YOU.
  • 00:10:54.130 --> 00:10:55.220
  • BUT WE'RE HEARING THAT CONSCIOUSLY BUT IN OUR
  • 00:10:55.240 --> 00:10:58.130
  • HEART LIKE DEEP DOWN IN OUR GUTS WE DON'T REALLY
  • 00:10:58.150 --> 00:11:00.220
  • BELIEVE IT FOR A LOT OF US.
  • 00:11:00.240 --> 00:11:02.030
  • AND I'M ONE OF THOSE THAT REALLY STRUGGLED WITH THIS.
  • 00:11:02.050 --> 00:11:04.190
  • AND IT'S AT THE HEART OF OUR LONELINESS.
  • 00:11:04.210 --> 00:11:06.170
  • IT'S AT THE HEART OF OUR LACK OF ENERGY AT TIMES.
  • 00:11:06.190 --> 00:11:08.240
  • AND YOU CAN TRAIN THAT PART OF YOUR MIND, YOUR
  • 00:11:08.260 --> 00:11:11.270
  • HEART TO TRULY BELIEVE YOUR LOVED BY GOD, TO
  • 00:11:11.290 --> 00:11:14.280
  • REALLY OWN IT, AND THE WAY YOU DO IS -IS THE WAY
  • 00:11:15.000 --> 00:11:17.200
  • I DID IT WAS THROUGH THIS CREED.
  • 00:11:17.220 --> 00:11:19.020
  • I SAY THIS CREED EVERY TIME I PRAY.
  • 00:11:19.040 --> 00:11:21.010
  • AND GOES LIKE THIS, I'M NOT WHAT I DO.
  • 00:11:21.030 --> 00:11:23.290
  • I'M NOT WHAT I HAVE.
  • 00:11:24.010 --> 00:11:25.120
  • I'M NOT WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT ME.
  • 00:11:25.140 --> 00:11:27.050
  • I AM THE BELOVED OF GOD.
  • 00:11:27.070 --> 00:11:29.150
  • BECAUSE WHO I AM NO ONE CAN TAKE IT FROM ME.
  • 00:11:29.170 --> 00:11:32.100
  • I DON'T TO WORRY.
  • 00:11:32.120 --> 00:11:34.020
  • I DON'T HAVE TO HURRY.
  • 00:11:34.040 --> 00:11:35.280
  • I CAN TRUST MY FRIEND JESUS AND SHARE HIS LOVE
  • 00:11:36.000 --> 00:11:38.090
  • WITH THE WORLD.
  • 00:11:38.110 --> 00:11:39.170
  • AND THESE WORDS PEOPLE HAVE BEEN PUTTING THIS
  • 00:11:39.190 --> 00:11:41.080
  • INTO PRACTICE AND SENDING US LETTERS AND MAKING ART
  • 00:11:41.100 --> 00:11:44.090
  • PILLOWS BECAUSE THEY'RE SAYING I NEVER REALIZED
  • 00:11:44.110 --> 00:11:47.040
  • MY WHOLE THAT I DIDN'T REALLY FEEL LIKE MY LIFE
  • 00:11:47.060 --> 00:11:50.010
  • MATTERED, THAT I TRULY BELONGED TO THE LORD.
  • 00:11:50.030 --> 00:11:52.100
  • AND WE'RE HEARING FROM SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE,
  • 00:11:52.120 --> 00:11:54.000

  • GOT A QUICK QUESTION.
  • 00:12:42.210 --> 00:12:44.050
  • THINK WHAT THE WORLD WAS LIKE EVEN WHEN YOU WERE
  • 00:12:44.070 --> 00:12:47.280
  • 9 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:12:48.000 --> 00:12:49.240
  • THERE WAS NO INSTAGRAM.
  • 00:12:49.260 --> 00:12:51.130
  • THERE WAS NO IMMEDIATE KNOWING WHAT YOUR FRIENDS
  • 00:12:51.150 --> 00:12:54.100
  • THINK ABOUT THE PICTURE YOU JUST POSTED.
  • 00:12:54.120 --> 00:12:57.010
  • THERE WAS NO FACEBOOK.
  • 00:12:57.030 --> 00:12:58.080
  • - THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:12:58.100 --> 00:12:59.190
  • - SO THE IDEA THAT IT WAS A RELATIVE'S VOICE AND
  • 00:12:59.210 --> 00:13:04.000
  • A RELATIVE SAYING JUST SOME, YOU KNOW, KIND OF
  • 00:13:04.020 --> 00:13:07.280
  • MEAN BUT MAYBE EVEN MEANT FUNNY BUT AT 9 YEARS OLD
  • 00:13:08.000 --> 00:13:11.240
  • YOU COULDN'T REALLY SEPARATE THE 2 THINGS,
  • 00:13:11.260 --> 00:13:14.130
  • BUT THINK OF HOW IMPORTANT THIS MESSAGE IS --
  • 00:13:14.150 --> 00:13:17.130
  • - TODAY.
  • 00:13:17.150 --> 00:13:19.170
  • - TO PEOPLE TODAY WHO INSTANTLY KNOW WHO
  • 00:13:19.190 --> 00:13:22.270
  • EVERYONE THINKS ABOUT WHAT THEY'RE DOING, WHAT
  • 00:13:22.290 --> 00:13:24.090
  • THEY'RE SAYING, WHAT THEY'RE POSTING.
  • 00:13:24.110 --> 00:13:25.130
  • - YOU NAILED IT.
  • 00:13:25.150 --> 00:13:26.120
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:13:26.140 --> 00:13:27.130
  • - IT'S UNBELIEVABLY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:13:27.150 --> 00:13:28.180
  • - THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT.
  • 00:13:28.200 --> 00:13:29.270
  • - BECAUSE THERE IS NO PAIN LIKE WE HAVE TODAY
  • 00:13:29.290 --> 00:13:32.000
  • IN THE WORLD, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:13:32.020 --> 00:13:33.150
  • I WAS SHARING -- - AND WE'VE NEVER
  • 00:13:33.170 --> 00:13:34.150
  • BEEN WEALTHIER.
  • 00:13:34.170 --> 00:13:35.200
  • WE'VE NEVER HAD MORE AVAILABLE TO US.
  • 00:13:35.220 --> 00:13:37.080
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:13:37.100 --> 00:13:39.190
  • BUT ON THE WAY HERE TO THIS, WE WERE TALKING
  • 00:13:39.210 --> 00:13:43.040
  • BACK IN THE BACK, I HAD CHECKED SOMETHING
  • 00:13:43.060 --> 00:13:46.280
  • ON INSTAGRAM.
  • 00:13:47.000 --> 00:13:48.140
  • AND IT WAS A TBN POST.
  • 00:13:48.160 --> 00:13:50.080
  • AND I COME FROM THE SCHOOL THAT MAN, IF YOU
  • 00:13:50.100 --> 00:13:52.190
  • DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY, DON'T SAY IT.
  • 00:13:52.210 --> 00:13:54.280
  • - IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY.
  • 00:13:55.000 --> 00:13:56.140
  • - IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANYTHING GOOD TO SAY.
  • 00:13:56.160 --> 00:13:57.260
  • AND THAT'S LOST.
  • 00:13:57.280 --> 00:14:00.060
  • THAT'S LOST NOW.
  • 00:14:00.080 --> 00:14:02.070
  • PEOPLE THAT GET ON INSTAGRAM AND TWITTER AND
  • 00:14:02.090 --> 00:14:06.150
  • ALL THOSE VOICES IT JUST NEVER CEASES TO JUST BLOW
  • 00:14:06.170 --> 00:14:10.160
  • MY MIND THAT YOU WASTE YOUR TIME IN BEING UGLY.
  • 00:14:10.180 --> 00:14:16.060
  • I DON'T GET IT.
  • 00:14:16.080 --> 00:14:17.190
  • - THERE'S ACTUAL CLINICAL STUDIES THAT
  • 00:14:17.210 --> 00:14:20.190
  • SHOW THAT AT THE HEART OF THAT VITREAL ON BOTH
  • 00:14:20.210 --> 00:14:22.170
  • SIDES OF THE AISLE, LIBERAL, CONSERVATIVE,
  • 00:14:22.190 --> 00:14:24.080
  • THE RIGIDITY THAT YOU FIND WHETHER IT'S IN
  • 00:14:24.100 --> 00:14:26.120
  • RELIGION OR POLITICS BUT IN BOTH IN PARTICULAR IS
  • 00:14:26.140 --> 00:14:29.070
  • ALMOST ALWAYS FUELED BY SHAME.
  • 00:14:29.090 --> 00:14:31.290
  • - WOW.
  • 00:14:32.010 --> 00:14:33.080
  • - SO THE GREATEST INDICATOR THAT SOMEONE
  • 00:14:33.100 --> 00:14:35.030
  • REALLY STRUGGLES WITH SHAME IS THE RIGIDITY IN
  • 00:14:35.050 --> 00:14:38.080
  • THE WAY THAT THEY -IT'S NOT THAT THIS IS TRUE AND
  • 00:14:38.100 --> 00:14:41.050
  • I BELIEVE IT AND I'M STANDING MY GROUND.
  • 00:14:41.070 --> 00:14:42.270
  • IT'S LIKE THIS IS TRUE AND ANYONE WHO DISAGREES
  • 00:14:42.290 --> 00:14:45.230
  • WITH ME IS EVIL AND WORTHLESS!
  • 00:14:45.250 --> 00:14:48.170
  • AND YOU SEE THE LANGUAGE, THE CONTEMPT, THE
  • 00:14:48.190 --> 00:14:50.120
  • CUSSING, THE DEMEANING OF PEOPLE THAT DISAGREE WITH
  • 00:14:50.140 --> 00:14:55.060
  • ME BY USING EXPLETIVES AND
  • 00:14:55.080 --> 00:14:57.260
  • ANIMALS AND THINGS.
  • 00:14:57.280 --> 00:14:59.050
  • THIS IS ALL A SIGN OF WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE
  • 00:14:59.070 --> 00:15:01.180
  • HEART OF THE PERSON TYPING THAT MESSAGE, ALL
  • 00:15:01.200 --> 00:15:03.050
  • THIS HIDDEN ANGER.
  • 00:15:03.070 --> 00:15:04.160
  • IT'S ALL ROOTED IN THIS NEED TO HAVE SOMETHING IN
  • 00:15:04.180 --> 00:15:09.190
  • MY LIFE THAT MATTERS, SO THE SHAME DRIVES US.
  • 00:15:09.210 --> 00:15:12.000
  • AND I THINK THAT OUR WORLD HAS NEVER
  • 00:15:12.020 --> 00:15:14.180
  • BEEN LONELIER.
  • 00:15:14.200 --> 00:15:16.060
  • I THINK THAT IT'S INSTAGRAM.
  • 00:15:16.080 --> 00:15:17.150
  • I ALSO THINK IT'S THE TRANSIENT NATURE OF OUR
  • 00:15:17.170 --> 00:15:19.170
  • WORLD, THAT IS THAT LIKE YOU KNOW, WHEN MY GRANDPA
  • 00:15:19.190 --> 00:15:22.100
  • WAS A KID, EVERYBODY LIVED IN THE SAME TOWN.
  • 00:15:22.120 --> 00:15:23.290
  • EVERYBODY KNEW EVERYONE.
  • 00:15:24.010 --> 00:15:25.250
  • EVERYONE HAD THE SAME RELIGION.
  • 00:15:25.270 --> 00:15:27.060
  • EVERYBODY WENT TO -YOU KNOW, AND NOW IT'S LIKE I
  • 00:15:27.080 --> 00:15:30.210
  • HAVE FIVE SIBLINGS AND 3 OR 4 OF THEM LIVE AROUND
  • 00:15:30.230 --> 00:15:34.150
  • THE COUNTRY AND WE TRAVEL EVERYWHERE, AND
  • 00:15:34.170 --> 00:15:36.200
  • EVERYBODY'S DRIVING EVERYWHERE, AND THEN
  • 00:15:36.220 --> 00:15:40.030
  • EVERYBODY KIND OF MAKES A SALAD BAR OF A PHILOSOPHY
  • 00:15:40.050 --> 00:15:42.220
  • OF LIFE.
  • 00:15:42.240 --> 00:15:44.000
  • SO THERE'S A SORT OF BRITTLENESS TO OUR LIFE
  • 00:15:44.020 --> 00:15:47.250
  • THAT WE'RE TRYING TO RECOUP THROUGH THINGS
  • 00:15:47.270 --> 00:15:49.010
  • LIKE SOCIAL MEDIA.
  • 00:15:49.030 --> 00:15:50.230
  • BUT YOU JUST CAN'T BOND THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA
  • 00:15:50.250 --> 00:15:52.090
  • OR E-MAIL.
  • 00:15:52.110 --> 00:15:53.270
  • YOU NEED TO SIT DOWN WITH SOMEONE, AND SOMETIMES
  • 00:15:53.290 --> 00:15:56.050
  • THAT PERSON -YOU JUST NEED LIKE A HUG OR
  • 00:15:56.070 --> 00:15:58.010
  • SOMEONE TO SIT WITH YOU AND HANG OUT WITH YOU.
  • 00:15:58.030 --> 00:16:01.030
  • IT'S SO NEEDED.
  • 00:16:01.050 --> 00:16:02.160
  • IT'S SO VALUABLE TODAY.
  • 00:16:02.180 --> 00:16:03.260
  • BUT ALL THIS HUSTLING FOR WORTHINESS IS GETTING IN
  • 00:16:03.280 --> 00:16:05.290
  • THE WAY OF THAT.
  • 00:16:06.010 --> 00:16:07.000
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:16:07.020 --> 00:16:08.140
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT YOU ARE BELOVED.
  • 00:16:08.160 --> 00:16:12.150
  • WE BOBBY SCHULLER WITH US ALL NIGHT.
  • 00:16:12.170 --> 00:16:15.020
  • YOU MENTIONED JUST A MOMENT AGO YOUR GRANDFATHER.
  • 00:16:15.040 --> 00:16:17.000
  • BY THE WAY, ROBERT SCHULLER, DOCTOR ROBERT
  • 00:16:17.020 --> 00:16:22.270
  • SCHULLER WAS TBN'S VERY FIRST OUTSIDE PROGRAMMER.
  • 00:16:22.290 --> 00:16:33.160
  • YOUR GRANDFATHER CALLED MY DAD --
  • 00:16:33.180 --> 00:16:35.220
  • - SO YOU MEAN LIKE TBN ALWAYS HAD ORIGINAL STUFF THAT WE
  • 00:16:35.240 --> 00:16:38.010
  • WERE MAKING AND THEN -- - WELL, WE WERE ATTEMPTING
  • 00:16:38.030 --> 00:16:40.040
  • TO PUT ON THE AIR ANYTHING THAT
  • 00:16:40.060 --> 00:16:42.050
  • EXISTED, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:16:42.070 --> 00:16:43.170
  • I MEAN, THERE WAS VERY LITTLE CHRISTIAN
  • 00:16:43.190 --> 00:16:44.230
  • PROGRAMMING BACK THEN.
  • 00:16:44.250 --> 00:16:46.150
  • SO YOU MAINLY HAD TO MAKE A LOT OF IT YOUR OWN.
  • 00:16:46.170 --> 00:16:47.210
  • BUT DOCTOR ROBERT SCHULLER WAS ALWAYS VERY
  • 00:16:47.230 --> 00:16:51.040
  • CLOSE TO MY FATHER, YOUR GRANDFATHER, MY DAD.
  • 00:16:51.060 --> 00:16:53.130
  • - ALMOST LIKE AN UNCLE.
  • 00:16:53.150 --> 00:16:54.290
  • PAPA.
  • 00:16:55.010 --> 00:16:57.010
  • - HE WOULD HAVE BEEN SEVERAL YEARS MY DAD'S
  • 00:16:57.030 --> 00:16:58.080
  • SENIOR, BUT THE SCHULLER FAMILY AND ALL THAT, AND
  • 00:16:58.100 --> 00:17:03.020
  • I REMEMBER AS A KID THE TIMES THAT MY PARENTS
  • 00:17:03.040 --> 00:17:08.030
  • TOOK ME TO EVEN BEFORE THE CRYSTAL CATHEDRAL WAS
  • 00:17:08.050 --> 00:17:12.020
  • BUILT, AND YOU HAD A NAME FOR THAT, THE ARBORETUM.
  • 00:17:12.040 --> 00:17:14.290
  • - ARBORETUM. YEAH.
  • 00:17:15.010 --> 00:17:16.150
  • THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:17:16.170 --> 00:17:17.280
  • - SO THAT WAS IN ORANGE COUNTY, AND DOCTOR ROBERT
  • 00:17:18.000 --> 00:17:20.100
  • SCHULLER HAD TO DRIVE UP KIND OF LIKE YOUR GOING
  • 00:17:20.120 --> 00:17:24.000
  • TO A MOVIE KIND OF THING, AND IT WAS THERE
  • 00:17:24.020 --> 00:17:29.060
  • ORIGINALLY AT THE ORANGE COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS AND
  • 00:17:29.080 --> 00:17:31.070
  • SWAP MEETS WERE ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY AND
  • 00:17:31.090 --> 00:17:32.270
  • WHATNOT, BUT DOCTOR ROBERT SCHULLER, AND I
  • 00:17:32.290 --> 00:17:37.220
  • REMEMBER AS A KID COMING TO THE CHURCH.
  • 00:17:37.240 --> 00:17:40.210
  • YOU WOULD DRIVE IN.
  • 00:17:40.230 --> 00:17:42.120
  • YOU WOULD THEN PUT THE SPEAKER IN THE WINDOW
  • 00:17:42.140 --> 00:17:44.260
  • KIND OF LIKE YOU WERE, YOU KNOW, AT A MOVIE LIKE
  • 00:17:44.280 --> 00:17:49.000
  • A DRIVE IN MOVIE, AND I REMEMBER ACTUALLY DOING
  • 00:17:49.020 --> 00:17:52.000
  • THAT AS A KID.
  • 00:17:52.020 --> 00:17:53.270
  • THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN MAYBE IN THE --
  • 00:17:53.290 --> 00:17:55.220
  • - EARLY 70'S.
  • 00:17:55.240 --> 00:17:57.010
  • - 70'S.
  • 00:17:57.030 --> 00:17:58.080
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:17:58.100 --> 00:17:59.250
  • WELL, I THINK -SO 60'S PROBABLY AND EARLY 70'S.
  • 00:17:59.270 --> 00:18:02.060
  • THE ARBORETUM WOULD HAVE BEEN ALL THROUGH THE 70'S
  • 00:18:02.080 --> 00:18:05.050
  • BECAUSE THE HOUR OF POWER STARTED IN 197 1 NAMED BY
  • 00:18:05.070 --> 00:18:06.280
  • BILLY GRAHAM BY THE WAY.
  • 00:18:07.000 --> 00:18:08.210
  • - REALLY?
  • 00:18:08.230 --> 00:18:10.120
  • - AND THEN IT WENT THROUGH THE CRYSTAL
  • 00:18:10.140 --> 00:18:12.060
  • CATHEDRAL WAS BUILT IN 1980.
  • 00:18:12.080 --> 00:18:13.120
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:18:13.140 --> 00:18:14.230
  • SO THE HOUR OF POWER -- BY THE WAY, IF ANYBODY HAS
  • 00:18:14.250 --> 00:18:16.080
  • EVER BEEN TO THE WAX MUSEUM IN LAS VEGAS, WHICH WE
  • 00:18:16.100 --> 00:18:21.190
  • DID ONE TIME, WE WALKED PAST DOCTOR SCHULLER
  • 00:18:21.210 --> 00:18:25.110
  • THERE AT THE WAX MUSEUM.
  • 00:18:25.130 --> 00:18:26.250
  • - AND HE WENT WOO!
  • 00:18:26.270 --> 00:18:27.290
  • I'M KIDDING.
  • 00:18:28.010 --> 00:18:28.270
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:18:28.290 --> 00:18:29.280
  • - THERE HE IS.
  • 00:18:30.000 --> 00:18:31.090
  • BUT -- - AND I TOOK A PICTURE.
  • 00:18:31.110 --> 00:18:32.280
  • - I REMEMBER JUST AS A YOUNG GUY, JUST KIND OF
  • 00:18:33.000 --> 00:18:36.070
  • AS A FUNNY THING THAT I REMEMBER AS A YOUNG GUY
  • 00:18:36.090 --> 00:18:40.260
  • DOCTOR ROBERT SCHULLER CALLED TBN AND WANTED
  • 00:18:40.280 --> 00:18:43.130
  • TO SEE MY DAD.
  • 00:18:43.150 --> 00:18:45.150
  • I DON'T EVEN REMEMBER WHAT THE SUBJECT WAS.
  • 00:18:45.170 --> 00:18:48.060
  • AND MY DAD HAD ME WITH HIM FOR SOME REASON.
  • 00:18:48.080 --> 00:18:51.000
  • I'M IN THE CAR, AND NOW I'M GOING, AND WE'RE
  • 00:18:51.020 --> 00:18:53.250
  • GOING TO GO UP THE ELEVATOR UP TO THE TOP OF
  • 00:18:53.270 --> 00:18:56.220
  • THAT BIG SPIRE THAT WAS ON THE GROUNDS THERE.
  • 00:18:56.240 --> 00:18:59.140
  • - THAT'S AWESOME.
  • 00:18:59.160 --> 00:19:01.180
  • - THE DOORS OPEN, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:19:01.200 --> 00:19:03.220
  • HE'S LIKE, YOU KNOW, AT ONE POINT AS A KID IT WAS
  • 00:19:03.240 --> 00:19:06.070
  • LIKE, YOU KNOW, EXPECTING TO MEET THE PRESIDENT OF
  • 00:19:06.090 --> 00:19:08.290
  • THE UNITED STATES, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE YOU'RE
  • 00:19:09.010 --> 00:19:11.260
  • GRANDFATHER'S MINISTRY ULTIMATELY, YOUR DAD'S,
  • 00:19:11.280 --> 00:19:14.160
  • NOW YOUR MINISTRY LITERALLY IS A GLOBAL
  • 00:19:14.180 --> 00:19:17.290
  • MINISTRY, AND THE SCHULLER MINISTRY HAVE
  • 00:19:18.010 --> 00:19:20.250
  • DONE A TON TO MAKE JESUS MORE FAMOUS
  • 00:19:20.270 --> 00:19:24.120
  • AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:19:24.140 --> 00:19:26.070
  • - THANK YOU.
  • 00:19:26.090 --> 00:19:27.240
  • - THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU'RE DOING.
  • 00:19:27.260 --> 00:19:29.170
  • LET'S GIVE THEM LOVE, THE WHOLE SCHULLER FAMILY.
  • 00:19:29.190 --> 00:19:32.120
  • THEY ARE BELOVED HERE IN ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA.
  • 00:19:32.140 --> 00:19:39.070
  • LAURIE AND I WERE MARRIED AT THE CRYSTAL CATHEDRAL.
  • 00:19:39.090 --> 00:19:41.170
  • - LAURIE: SO WERE YOU. - BOBBY: I WAS.
  • 00:19:41.190 --> 00:19:44.120
  • - MATT: WE HAD OUR RECEPTION AT THE ARBORETUM BUILDING.
  • 00:19:44.140 --> 00:19:49.090
  • - LAURIE: GOT ANY OF THAT FOOTAGE, RUSS?
  • 00:19:49.110 --> 00:19:51.050
  • - MATT: IT WILL GET EDITED IN. IT'S THERE. SO ANYWAY.
  • 00:19:51.070 --> 00:19:55.180
  • - IT'S INTERESTING, WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT MY GRANDPA
  • 00:19:55.200 --> 00:19:57.220
  • AND ALL THE THINGS HE DID AND YOU SAY HE WAS
  • 00:19:57.240 --> 00:19:59.180
  • BELOVED, HE ABSOLUTELY IS GOD'S BELOVED,
  • 00:19:59.200 --> 00:20:02.100
  • BUT HE WASN'T EVERYBODY'S BELOVED.
  • 00:20:02.120 --> 00:20:05.040
  • AND THAT WAS ONE OF THE BIG LESSONS THAT I
  • 00:20:05.060 --> 00:20:07.010
  • LEARNED FROM HIM WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THIS IN THE
  • 00:20:07.030 --> 00:20:10.020
  • BOOK, "I'M NOT WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT ME".
  • 00:20:10.040 --> 00:20:12.070
  • BUT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WAS SO IMPRESSIVE
  • 00:20:12.090 --> 00:20:13.290
  • ABOUT MY GRANDPA WAS HOW GOOD HE WAS AT
  • 00:20:14.010 --> 00:20:17.190
  • NOT ALLOWING CRITICISM TO UNDERMINE
  • 00:20:17.210 --> 00:20:20.040
  • GOD'S DESTINY IN HIS LIFE.
  • 00:20:20.060 --> 00:20:23.030
  • AND MANY OF US DO THAT BECAUSE THE MAIN THING
  • 00:20:23.050 --> 00:20:26.130
  • THAT THE ENEMY-- THE ENEMY REALLY WANTS TO GET
  • 00:20:26.150 --> 00:20:29.130
  • AT US WITH THESE KINDS OF WORDS AND ERODE THAT
  • 00:20:29.150 --> 00:20:32.050
  • SENSE OF BELONGING.
  • 00:20:32.070 --> 00:20:33.180
  • WORDS IS ACTUALLY THE MAIN WAY IT HAPPENS, FRANKLY.
  • 00:20:33.200 --> 00:20:36.070
  • AND IT WAS FUNNY BECAUSE I REMEMBER WHEN I TOOK
  • 00:20:36.090 --> 00:20:38.210
  • OVER THE HOUR OF POWER, IT WAS A WEIRD TIME.
  • 00:20:38.230 --> 00:20:41.200
  • I WAS PASTORING A SMALLER CHURCH THAT MY WIFE AND I
  • 00:20:41.220 --> 00:20:44.290
  • HAD PLANTED, AND THEN THE CRYSTAL CATHEDRAL, THERE
  • 00:20:45.010 --> 00:20:47.190
  • WAS THIS KIND OF CONGREGATION THAT WAS
  • 00:20:47.210 --> 00:20:49.200
  • LEFT OVER THAT HAD COME THROUGH BANKRUPTCY THAT
  • 00:20:49.220 --> 00:20:51.090
  • WAS REALLY HURTING AND WANTING TO KNOW WHERE ARE
  • 00:20:51.110 --> 00:20:53.200
  • WE GONNA GO WITHOUT THIS BUILDING THAT WE LOST IN
  • 00:20:53.220 --> 00:20:56.090
  • THE BANKRUPTCY, AND WHO ARE WE AS A PEOPLE.
  • 00:20:56.110 --> 00:20:58.220
  • SO I THOUGHT I HAD THESE VISIONS OF LEADING THIS
  • 00:20:58.240 --> 00:21:01.010
  • AND BEING THIS NOBLE LEADER AND HERO AND
  • 00:21:01.030 --> 00:21:04.220
  • STUFF, AND THAT'S NOT AT ALL HOW IT FELT.
  • 00:21:04.240 --> 00:21:08.170
  • WHAT IT FELT LIKE WAS BEING PELTED CONSTANTLY
  • 00:21:08.190 --> 00:21:11.270
  • WITH CRITICISMS; IN FACT, THERE WAS AN ONLINE,
  • 00:21:11.290 --> 00:21:16.060
  • THERE WAS A WEBSITE THAT WAS CREATED BY A GUY WHO
  • 00:21:16.080 --> 00:21:20.130
  • WAS ACTUALLY A FIRED EMPLOYEE.
  • 00:21:20.150 --> 00:21:23.130
  • HE WAS FIRED BY MY GRANDPA IN
  • 00:21:23.150 --> 00:21:25.010
  • 1980-SOMETHING, AND HE CREATED THIS WEBSITE THAT
  • 00:21:25.030 --> 00:21:27.120
  • WAS BASICALLY JUST LIES.
  • 00:21:27.140 --> 00:21:29.220
  • HE WOULD JUST HEAR GOSSIP IN A SEWING CIRCLE
  • 00:21:29.240 --> 00:21:31.200
  • AND HE WOULD PUBLISH IT ON THIS WEBSITE,
  • 00:21:31.220 --> 00:21:33.250
  • AND IT GOT REALLY BAD.
  • 00:21:33.270 --> 00:21:35.120
  • AND THEN PEOPLE COULD MAKE, OTHER PEOPLE COULD
  • 00:21:35.140 --> 00:21:37.000
  • MAKE COMMENTS, AND THEY WOULD SAY "WELL I'VE
  • 00:21:37.020 --> 00:21:38.180
  • HEARD THIS" AND PEOPLE WOULD READ IT, AND THEY
  • 00:21:38.200 --> 00:21:40.190
  • WERE SAYING REALLY PERSONAL STUFF THAT BY
  • 00:21:40.210 --> 00:21:43.050
  • THE WAY WASN'T EVEN TRUE ABOUT MY KIDS, ABOUT MY
  • 00:21:43.070 --> 00:21:46.040
  • WIFE, ABOUT REALLY PERSONAL STUFF,
  • 00:21:46.060 --> 00:21:49.280
  • AND I WAS REALLY INSULTED.
  • 00:21:50.000 --> 00:21:51.200
  • - WELCOME TO THE CLUB.
  • 00:21:51.220 --> 00:21:52.290
  • - THANK YOU.
  • 00:21:53.010 --> 00:21:54.010
  • - CONGRATULATIONS.
  • 00:21:54.030 --> 00:21:55.070
  • - BUT LAURIE, THAT'S THE POINT.
  • 00:21:55.090 --> 00:21:56.270
  • THAT'S THE POINT IS THAT WHEN I WAS REALLY DELVING
  • 00:21:56.290 --> 00:22:00.200
  • INTO SELF-PITY DURING THIS TIME, AND I REMEMBER
  • 00:22:00.220 --> 00:22:03.010
  • I WAS AT UNIVERSAL CITY WALK WITH MY WIFE AND I
  • 00:22:03.030 --> 00:22:05.270
  • WAS TALKING TO HER, AND I WAS UP AT NINE, I'M LIKE
  • 00:22:05.290 --> 00:22:08.230
  • I'M GONNA GET A LAWYER, I'M GONNA SUE, YOU KNOW
  • 00:22:08.250 --> 00:22:11.080
  • BECAUSE I'M REALLY ANGRY, AND I HAD EVERY RIGHT
  • 00:22:11.100 --> 00:22:13.160
  • TO BE. IT WAS UNFAIR.
  • 00:22:13.180 --> 00:22:15.010
  • AND SO HERE I AM JUST SELF-PITY, RIGHT, AND I'M
  • 00:22:15.030 --> 00:22:19.040
  • WALKING DOWN AND I SEE THIS KID, HE'S GOT A
  • 00:22:19.060 --> 00:22:21.090
  • BLACK SHIRT ON AND IT SAID "IF YOU AIN'T GOT
  • 00:22:21.110 --> 00:22:24.090
  • HATERS, YOU AIN'T DOING..." EXPLETIVE.
  • 00:22:24.110 --> 00:22:28.110
  • - MATT: WAIT. WAIT. DOES IT RHYME?
  • 00:22:28.130 --> 00:22:31.070
  • - THAT'S THE PAGE I HAVE RIGHT HERE.
  • 00:22:31.090 --> 00:22:33.100
  • I MARKED THAT PAGE.
  • 00:22:33.120 --> 00:22:35.220
  • - I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT SAYS YET.
  • 00:22:35.240 --> 00:22:37.240
  • - THE "S" WORD. - GOT IT.
  • 00:22:37.260 --> 00:22:39.210
  • - IF YOU AIN'T GOT HATERS, YOU AIN'T DOING "S".
  • 00:22:39.230 --> 00:22:42.090
  • - GOT IT. I'M WITH YOU NOW.
  • 00:22:42.110 --> 00:22:44.050
  • - AND EVERYBODY SAID...
  • 00:22:44.070 --> 00:22:46.080
  • - AMEN!
  • 00:22:46.100 --> 00:22:48.100
  • - LOOK, LOOK, IT REALLY WAS, AS CRAZY AS IT
  • 00:22:48.120 --> 00:22:50.160
  • SOUNDS, I SAW THAT AND I WAS LIKE YEAH!
  • 00:22:50.180 --> 00:22:54.210
  • - LAURIE: WHAT A REVELATION!
  • 00:22:54.230 --> 00:22:56.060
  • - IT WAS SO FUNNY BECAUSE I REALIZED, AND
  • 00:22:56.080 --> 00:22:58.260
  • THIS IS SO IMPORTANT THAT THE MORE INFLUENCE YOU
  • 00:22:58.280 --> 00:23:00.160
  • HAVE, THE MORE ENEMIES YOU HAVE.
  • 00:23:00.180 --> 00:23:02.090
  • THE MORE YOU'RE DOING THINGS FOR GOD,
  • 00:23:02.110 --> 00:23:04.050
  • THE MORE PEOPLE AREN'T GONNA LIKE YOU.
  • 00:23:04.070 --> 00:23:06.110
  • I DON'T KNOW ANY INFLUENTIAL LEADER ON
  • 00:23:06.130 --> 00:23:08.070
  • EARTH THAT DOESN'T HAVE A LOT OF CRITICS, AND THE
  • 00:23:08.090 --> 00:23:10.090
  • MORE INFLUENTIAL THEY ARE, THE MORE CRITICS
  • 00:23:10.110 --> 00:23:11.290
  • THEY HAVE, AND THE MORE THEY SHOULD HAVE BY THE WAY.
  • 00:23:12.010 --> 00:23:14.200
  • IF YOU HAVE AN OPINION, YOU HAVE AN ENEMY.
  • 00:23:14.220 --> 00:23:16.050
  • YOUR ABILITY TO LEAD IS ONLY EQUAL TO YOUR
  • 00:23:16.070 --> 00:23:19.080
  • THRESHOLD FOR PAIN.
  • 00:23:19.100 --> 00:23:21.210
  • SO WHAT I REALIZED WHEN I SAW THAT SHIRT,
  • 00:23:21.230 --> 00:23:24.100
  • I SAW THE SHIRT AND I WAS LIKE IT'S TRAINING.
  • 00:23:24.120 --> 00:23:28.290
  • AND I REALIZED I WAS LIKE IF I WANT TO DO MORE THAN
  • 00:23:29.010 --> 00:23:32.240
  • I'M DOING NOW, I NEED TO HAVE A HIGHER TOLERANCE
  • 00:23:32.260 --> 00:23:36.230
  • FOR THIS KIND OF THING. IF I CAN'T HANDLE THIS
  • 00:23:36.250 --> 00:23:41.000
  • NOW, I CAN'T HANDLE A BIGGER CALLING.
  • 00:23:41.020 --> 00:23:44.090
  • AND THAT'S A MESSAGE FOR EVERYBODY LISTENING THAT
  • 00:23:44.110 --> 00:23:46.210
  • VERY OFTEN THE LITTLE PETTY THINGS THAT ARE
  • 00:23:46.230 --> 00:23:48.240
  • GETTING TO YOU AND KEEPING YOU UP AT NIGHT,
  • 00:23:48.260 --> 00:23:50.220
  • UNTIL YOU LEARN TO LET GO OF THOSE THINGS AND SAY
  • 00:23:50.240 --> 00:23:52.280
  • I'M GOD'S BELOVED, I'M FAVORED, I'M CALLED, HE
  • 00:23:53.000 --> 00:23:56.010
  • ADORES ME, HE CHOOSES ME, HE'S NOT HOLDING THESE
  • 00:23:56.030 --> 00:23:58.250
  • THINGS AGAINST ME BECAUSE OF THE CROSS, THE MORE
  • 00:23:58.270 --> 00:24:01.090
  • PREPARED YOU ARE FOR YOUR DESTINY.
  • 00:24:01.110 --> 00:24:03.010
  • GOD'S NOT GONNA HURL YOU INTO SOMETHING
  • 00:24:03.030 --> 00:24:04.100
  • IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE CRITICISM.
  • 00:24:04.120 --> 00:24:05.220
  • - BECAUSE HOW MANY TIMES DOES THAT STOP PEOPLE.
  • 00:24:05.240 --> 00:24:07.260
  • - BOBBY: IT ALWAYS STOPS PEOPLE!
  • 00:24:07.280 --> 00:24:09.140
  • - AND WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT THAT?
  • 00:24:09.160 --> 00:24:11.230
  • COME ON, YOU WERE PREACHING TO ME BACK THERE.
  • 00:24:11.250 --> 00:24:13.130
  • - I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR.
  • 00:24:13.150 --> 00:24:14.240
  • - ABOUT WHAT JESUS SAID AT THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT.
  • 00:24:14.260 --> 00:24:16.020
  • SURE! YES, JESUS SAYS ON THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT,
  • 00:24:16.040 --> 00:24:18.030
  • BLESSED ARE YOU WHEN PEOPLE INSULT YOU AND
  • 00:24:18.050 --> 00:24:20.010
  • PERSECUTE YOU AND FALSELY SAY ALL KINDS OF EVIL
  • 00:24:20.030 --> 00:24:22.070
  • AGAINST YOU, AND WOE TO YOU WHEN EVERYONE SAYS
  • 00:24:22.090 --> 00:24:24.060
  • GOOD ABOUT YOU. WHAT DOES HE MEAN BY THAT?
  • 00:24:24.080 --> 00:24:26.030
  • IF EVERYBODY'S SAYING GOOD ABOUT YOU, LOOK,
  • 00:24:26.050 --> 00:24:29.060
  • IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANY CRITICS, GET SOME.
  • 00:24:29.080 --> 00:24:31.240
  • IT'S THAT SIMPLE. IF YOU'RE LIVING LIFE--
  • 00:24:31.260 --> 00:24:34.080
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:24:34.100 --> 00:24:36.170
  • IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANY CRITICS, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:24:36.190 --> 00:24:38.040
  • IT'S THAT SIMPLE.
  • 00:24:38.060 --> 00:24:40.180
  • - FIRST OF ALL, THAT WAS THE SOCIAL MEDIA
  • 00:24:40.200 --> 00:24:42.100
  • QUOTE OF THE NIGHT.
  • 00:24:42.120 --> 00:24:43.270
  • IF YOU AIN'T GOT ANY HATERS, GET SOME.
  • 00:24:43.290 --> 00:24:45.170
  • I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:24:45.190 --> 00:24:46.200
  • - YOU CAN HAVE SOME OF OURS.
  • 00:24:46.220 --> 00:24:48.020
  • - AND BY THE WAY--
  • 00:24:48.040 --> 00:24:49.020
  • - I'LL SHARE.
  • 00:24:49.040 --> 00:24:50.090
  • - I THINK THIS BROADCAST IN A FEW MINUTES AGO WAS
  • 00:24:50.110 --> 00:24:52.100
  • THE FIRST TIME THAT THE "S" WORD EVER GOT AN AMEN
  • 00:24:52.120 --> 00:24:55.020
  • IN THE AUDIENCE, OKAY?
  • 00:24:55.040 --> 00:24:57.120
  • SO BASICALLY, THAT'S A NEW THING TOO.
  • 00:24:57.140 --> 00:25:02.050
  • WE ARE TALKING TO BOBBY SCHULLER.
  • 00:25:02.070 --> 00:25:04.000
  • WE ARE TALKING ABOUT YOU ARE BELOVED.
  • 00:25:04.020 --> 00:25:06.170
  • THE 800 NUMBER IS ON THE SCREEN.
  • 00:25:06.190 --> 00:25:09.050
  • THIS IS ALMOST A BIT OF A JOURNEY FOR YOU
  • 00:25:09.070 --> 00:25:14.210
  • PERSONALLY. I WANT YOU TO GO TO THE PHONE.
  • 00:25:14.230 --> 00:25:16.260
  • THE OPERATORS ARE STANDING BY.
  • 00:25:16.280 --> 00:25:19.060
  • THE 800 NUMBER, THIS IS FOR YOU ESPECIALLY IN
  • 00:25:19.080 --> 00:25:21.180
  • THIS WORLD WITH SOCIAL MEDIA.
  • 00:25:21.200 --> 00:25:23.200
  • BUT I HAVE A GOOD QUESTION FOR YOU,
  • 00:25:23.220 --> 00:25:25.150
  • OR I THINK IT'S A GOOD QUESTION.
  • 00:25:25.170 --> 00:25:26.210
  • I BELIEVE IT'S A GOOD QUESTION.
  • 00:25:26.230 --> 00:25:29.080
  • YOU ARE IN THE CAR, YOU HAVE HAD THIS MOMENT OF
  • 00:25:29.100 --> 00:25:35.050
  • DISCLOSURE WITH YOUR WIFE.
  • 00:25:35.070 --> 00:25:36.260
  • YOU WERE TELLING A PERSONAL STORY THAT AS AN
  • 00:25:36.280 --> 00:25:39.030
  • ADULT YOU THOUGHT WAS FUNNY, BUT THEN YOU
  • 00:25:39.050 --> 00:25:41.100
  • REALIZED AN EMOTIONAL BURST KIND OF CAME OUT.
  • 00:25:41.120 --> 00:25:45.050
  • FIRST OF ALL, YOU LEFT IT THERE, AND I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:25:45.070 --> 00:25:48.170
  • HOW YOU GOT OVER IT, AND IT WASN'T JUST THE "S"
  • 00:25:48.190 --> 00:25:52.100
  • WORD ON THE T-SHIRT.
  • 00:25:52.120 --> 00:25:54.050
  • YOU GOT OVER IT IN A DIFFERENT WAY, OKAY.
  • 00:25:54.070 --> 00:25:56.180
  • YOU GOT OVER IT.
  • 00:25:56.200 --> 00:25:58.000
  • BUT THEN IT BECAME A BOOK.
  • 00:25:58.020 --> 00:26:00.200
  • SO WALK ME THROUGH THE PROCESS OF GETTING ON THE
  • 00:26:00.220 --> 00:26:04.110
  • OTHER SIDE OF THIS REALIZATION THAT HAPPENED
  • 00:26:04.130 --> 00:26:07.090
  • TO YOU THAT YOU DIDN'T KNOW WAS GONNA COME,
  • 00:26:07.110 --> 00:26:09.280
  • CERTAINLY DIDN'T KNOW WHILE YOU WERE DRIVING
  • 00:26:10.000 --> 00:26:11.180
  • THAT THIS WAS GONNA HAPPEN.
  • 00:26:11.200 --> 00:26:13.010
  • NOW IT'S A BOOK. WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:26:13.030 --> 00:26:15.100
  • - SO WHAT HAPPENED WAS THIS CREED,
  • 00:26:15.120 --> 00:26:17.090
  • AND I NEEDED A TOOL.
  • 00:26:17.110 --> 00:26:19.060
  • I NEEDED TO TRAIN MYSELF, TRAIN THAT UNCONSCIOUS
  • 00:26:19.080 --> 00:26:21.250
  • PART OF MY MIND, THE SAME WAY THAT A BASEBALL
  • 00:26:21.270 --> 00:26:23.170
  • PLAYER HITS HOME RUNS BECAUSE THEY SWING BATS
  • 00:26:23.190 --> 00:26:25.280
  • OVER AND OVER AND OVER.
  • 00:26:26.000 --> 00:26:27.120
  • THEY'VE TRAINED THEIR BODY TO HIT A BASEBALL.
  • 00:26:27.140 --> 00:26:29.140
  • WE NEED TO TRAIN OUR MIND INTO GOD'S LOVE,
  • 00:26:29.160 --> 00:26:32.190
  • AND IT'S THAT SIMPLE.
  • 00:26:32.210 --> 00:26:34.100
  • SO THERE'S MANY WAYS YOU CAN DO IT, BUT THE WAY
  • 00:26:34.120 --> 00:26:36.160
  • THAT WORKED FOR ME IS I WROTE THIS CREED.
  • 00:26:36.180 --> 00:26:38.170
  • IT WAS BASED OFF OF A SERMON I HEARD FROM HENRI
  • 00:26:38.190 --> 00:26:40.190
  • NOUWEN ACTUALLY AT THE CRYSTAL CATHEDRAL, AND IT
  • 00:26:40.210 --> 00:26:43.270
  • WAS ALSO A BIG INFLUENCE OF A FRIEND OF MINE
  • 00:26:43.290 --> 00:26:46.090
  • WHO IS ALSO AN AUTHOR, DALLAS WILLARD
  • 00:26:46.110 --> 00:26:48.110
  • WHO PASTORS REALLY LOVE AND I KIND OF COMBINED
  • 00:26:48.130 --> 00:26:51.150
  • THEIR MESSAGES INTO THIS CREED, AND I WAS LIKE I'M
  • 00:26:51.170 --> 00:26:53.140
  • JUST GONNA GRIND THIS INTO MY MIND AND MY HEART.
  • 00:26:53.160 --> 00:26:56.280
  • SO EVERY TIME I PRAYED, I PRAYED THIS CREED, AND IT
  • 00:26:57.000 --> 00:26:59.140
  • STARTED SMALLER AND IT GREW OVER TIME, BUT THAT
  • 00:26:59.160 --> 00:27:02.290
  • AND THEN IT WASN'T JUST THAT BUT IT WAS ALSO
  • 00:27:03.010 --> 00:27:05.210
  • GETTING INTO VULNERABLE RELATIONSHIPS, FRIENDSHIPS.
  • 00:27:05.230 --> 00:27:09.010
  • I HAVE A MENTOR THAT I GO ON LONG TWO-HOUR WALKS
  • 00:27:09.030 --> 00:27:12.160
  • WITH, AND I JUST POUR OUT, I JUST GIVE HIM
  • 00:27:12.180 --> 00:27:14.190
  • ALL MY JUNK. I'M LIKE HERE'S MY FEARS,
  • 00:27:14.210 --> 00:27:16.130
  • HERE'S MY DOUBTS, HERE'S THE WAYS I'M ANGRY AND
  • 00:27:16.150 --> 00:27:18.190
  • WHERE I'M FEELING BITTER, AND HE JUST PRAYS FOR ME.
  • 00:27:18.210 --> 00:27:22.020
  • HE'S LIKE A GENERATION OLDER THAN I AM, SO HE'S
  • 00:27:22.040 --> 00:27:24.010
  • KIND OF A SPIRITUAL FATHER TO ME.
  • 00:27:24.030 --> 00:27:26.010
  • AND THAT KIND OF RELATIONSHIP AND WITH
  • 00:27:26.030 --> 00:27:28.030
  • MY WIFE TOO LEARNING THAT SHE ACTUALLY
  • 00:27:28.050 --> 00:27:29.280
  • NEEDS THAT FROM ME.
  • 00:27:30.000 --> 00:27:31.150
  • MEN DON'T REALIZE THAT THAT SHE NEEDS ME TO BE
  • 00:27:31.170 --> 00:27:34.170
  • VULNERABLE, SHE NEEDS ME TO TELL HER ALL THE
  • 00:27:34.190 --> 00:27:36.110
  • STUFF THAT'S BUGGING ME.
  • 00:27:36.130 --> 00:27:38.150
  • - YEAH!
  • 00:27:38.170 --> 00:27:39.250
  • - ARE YOU LOOKING AT ME SPECIFICALLY RIGHT NOW?
  • 00:27:39.270 --> 00:27:42.040
  • LET'S DO THE SESSION AFTERWARDS.
  • 00:27:42.060 --> 00:27:44.290
  • - BUT AREN'T WE SUPPOSED TO TELL THEM EVERYTHING?
  • 00:27:45.010 --> 00:27:47.100
  • - EVERY DUDE, MOST DUDES ARE THIS WAY THAT IT'S
  • 00:27:47.120 --> 00:27:50.240
  • LIKE WE THINK THAT ACTING STRONG IS STRONG
  • 00:27:50.260 --> 00:27:54.260
  • BUT IT'S NOT. ACTING STRONG IS WEAK.
  • 00:27:54.280 --> 00:27:57.190
  • AND WE KNOW THAT WHEN WE SEE OTHER DUDES DO IT.
  • 00:27:57.210 --> 00:27:59.290
  • WHEN OTHER MEN ARE ACTING INSECURE AND BRAVADO,
  • 00:28:00.030 --> 00:28:02.190
  • YOU'RE LIKE THAT'S A WEAK ONE.
  • 00:28:02.210 --> 00:28:04.250
  • IT'S THE ONES THAT ARE NOBLE AND QUIET, RIGHT.
  • 00:28:04.270 --> 00:28:07.250
  • SO WE DON'T PRACTICE IT FOR OURSELVES SO WHEN WE
  • 00:28:07.270 --> 00:28:11.160
  • BECOME VULNERABLE, WHEN WE BECOME HONEST ABOUT
  • 00:28:11.180 --> 00:28:14.130
  • WHAT WE'RE STRUGGLING WITH, IT'S GOOD.
  • 00:28:14.150 --> 00:28:17.110
  • AND WE NEED IT, OUR SPOUSES NEED IT,
  • 00:28:17.130 --> 00:28:19.030
  • OUR KIDS NEED IT.
  • 00:28:19.050 --> 00:28:20.250
  • AND THAT'S HOW PEOPLE BOND BECAUSE WHEN YOU'RE
  • 00:28:20.270 --> 00:28:23.150
  • VULNERABLE, THEY CAN BE VULNERABLE AROUND YOU.
  • 00:28:23.170 --> 00:28:25.290
  • IN FACT, IF YOU SUCCEED IN CONVINCING PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:28:26.010 --> 00:28:28.230
  • YOU'RE PERFECT, THEY NO LONGER CAN BE
  • 00:28:28.250 --> 00:28:30.160
  • VULNERABLE AROUND YOU.
  • 00:28:30.180 --> 00:28:32.130
  • IN FACT, I MAKE THIS JOKE IN OUR CHURCH ALL
  • 00:28:32.150 --> 00:28:33.240
  • THE TIME, WHEN PEOPLE VISIT I'M LIKE LOOK AROUND,
  • 00:28:33.260 --> 00:28:35.210
  • SEE THOSE PERFECT PEOPLE? NONE OF THEM ARE PERFECT.
  • 00:28:35.230 --> 00:28:38.120
  • ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BE MARRIED TO THEM AND YOU
  • 00:28:38.140 --> 00:28:41.020
  • WOULD SEE, OR LIVE WITH THEM, BE A ROOMMATE WITH
  • 00:28:41.040 --> 00:28:44.060
  • THEM, AND YOU WOULD SEE VERY QUICKLY
  • 00:28:44.080 --> 00:28:46.060
  • ALL THEIR IMPERFECTIONS. AND THE HONEST TRUTH IS
  • 00:28:46.080 --> 00:28:51.060
  • GOD'S REFINING US, HE'S MAKING US BETTER,
  • 00:28:51.080 --> 00:28:53.190
  • BUT WE ONLY BECOME MORE LIKE JESUS WHEN WE
  • 00:28:53.210 --> 00:28:56.230
  • STOP TRYING SO HARD. THAT'S THE IRONY.
  • 00:28:56.250 --> 00:28:59.140
  • WHEN WE'RE LIVING A LIFE OF CLENCHED FISTS LIKE
  • 00:28:59.160 --> 00:29:01.160
  • THIS, EVERYTHING LOCKS UP IN OUR LIFE, BUT WHEN WE
  • 00:29:01.180 --> 00:29:04.130
  • BEGIN TO OPEN YOUR HANDS TO PEOPLE THAT WE'RE SAFE
  • 00:29:04.150 --> 00:29:06.180
  • WITH, WE'RE LIKE THIS IS WHERE I'M DYING, I'M DYING FROM
  • 00:29:06.200 --> 00:29:10.170
  • THIS, AND I NEED YOU TO HEAR ME, AND I NEED SOME
  • 00:29:10.190 --> 00:29:13.200
  • COMFORT FROM YOU, THAT'S WHEN WE REALLY BEGIN TO
  • 00:29:13.220 --> 00:29:16.030
  • LEARN THAT WE'RE SO LOVED BY GOD, AND THAT WE'RE
  • 00:29:16.050 --> 00:29:20.290
  • LOVED BY PEOPLE IN OUR FAMILY, AND OUR FRIENDS,
  • 00:29:21.010 --> 00:29:23.010
  • AND THAT'S WHAT WE NEED. WE REALLY NEED THAT.
  • 00:29:23.030 --> 00:29:25.020
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:29:25.040 --> 00:29:29.240
  • - LET'S, WE'RE GONNA KIND OF KEEP GOING
  • 00:29:29.260 --> 00:29:33.140
  • THROUGH THIS, BUT WHY DON'T YOU GRAB YOUR BOOK,
  • 00:29:33.160 --> 00:29:36.050
  • YOUR OWN BOOK.
  • 00:29:36.070 --> 00:29:37.130
  • - THIS ONE HERE.
  • 00:29:37.150 --> 00:29:38.200
  • - YEAH, JUST GRAB THAT OFF THE SHELF THERE, AND
  • 00:29:38.220 --> 00:29:40.180
  • I WANT TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE CHEAT SHEET HERE
  • 00:29:40.200 --> 00:29:42.160
  • IN CASE YOU NEED IT, BUT WHY DON'T WE JUST AS A
  • 00:29:42.180 --> 00:29:46.120
  • GROUP HERE, THIS AUDIENCE AND THOSE WATCHING AT
  • 00:29:46.140 --> 00:29:49.070
  • HOME, LET'S JUST SAY THIS TOGETHER.
  • 00:29:49.090 --> 00:29:52.180
  • LET'S DO IT ONCE AND KIND OF TOGETHER.
  • 00:29:52.200 --> 00:29:55.040
  • WE'RE GONNA REPEAT AFTER YOU.
  • 00:29:55.060 --> 00:29:57.060
  • - I'LL DO IT AND THEN YOU GUYS SAY IT AFTER ME.
  • 00:29:57.080 --> 00:29:58.180
  • - WE'RE GONNA REPEAT IT AFTER YOU, ALMOST LIKE A
  • 00:29:58.200 --> 00:30:01.030
  • SINNER'S PRAYER. AND IF THERE'S ANY SINNERS,
  • 00:30:01.050 --> 00:30:03.140
  • GO AHEAD AND SAY THIS PRAYER. IT'S OKAY.
  • 00:30:03.160 --> 00:30:05.110
  • AND SO LET'S DO THAT AND GET THAT OUT OF THE WAY,
  • 00:30:05.130 --> 00:30:10.180
  • AND THEN BOBBY, WHY DON'T YOU SEAL THAT WITH PRAYER
  • 00:30:10.200 --> 00:30:15.000
  • AFTER WE GET THIS DONE THAT PEOPLE WOULD START
  • 00:30:15.020 --> 00:30:17.030
  • ABSORBING THIS CONTENT, THAT THEY-- LOOK, MY
  • 00:30:17.050 --> 00:30:20.110
  • CONCERN IS THAT THAT TOUGH GUY, THE BRAVADO
  • 00:30:20.130 --> 00:30:26.190
  • TOUGH GUY THAT YOU ARE DESCRIBING IS NOT
  • 00:30:26.210 --> 00:30:30.160
  • WATCHING THIS BROADCAST, SO WIFE, GO GET HIM OUT
  • 00:30:30.180 --> 00:30:34.270
  • OF THE GARAGE, BRING HIM BACK IN FRONT OF THE TV,
  • 00:30:34.290 --> 00:30:37.190
  • AND WE'RE GONNA-- OKAY, THAT KIND OF THING THAT
  • 00:30:37.210 --> 00:30:39.220
  • MAYBE PEOPLE ARE GOING I DON'T NEED THIS, BECAUSE
  • 00:30:39.240 --> 00:30:42.120
  • I THINK YOU WOULD HAVE SAID I DON'T NEED THIS
  • 00:30:42.140 --> 00:30:46.120
  • PRIOR TO THAT EVENT IN YOUR CAR.
  • 00:30:46.140 --> 00:30:49.010
  • - THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:30:49.030 --> 00:30:50.130
  • THE IRONY IS YOU BECOME MORE CREATIVE WHEN YOU
  • 00:30:50.150 --> 00:30:52.190
  • STOP TRYING TO PROVE YOURSELF THROUGH CREATIVITY.
  • 00:30:52.210 --> 00:30:54.260
  • YOU BECOME MORE SUCCESSFUL WHEN YOU STOP
  • 00:30:54.280 --> 00:30:56.210
  • TRYING TO PROVE YOURSELF THROUGH SUCCESS.
  • 00:30:56.230 --> 00:30:58.230
  • YOU BECOME HAPPIER WHEN YOU STOP TRYING TO PROVE
  • 00:30:58.250 --> 00:31:00.270
  • YOURSELF BY BEING A HAPPY PERSON, AND THE
  • 00:31:00.290 --> 00:31:02.240
  • LIST GOES ON AND ON.
  • 00:31:02.260 --> 00:31:04.030
  • YOU BECOME MORE MORAL WHEN YOU STOP TRYING TO
  • 00:31:04.050 --> 00:31:05.140
  • PROVE YOURSELF BY BEING A MORAL PERSON.
  • 00:31:05.160 --> 00:31:07.190
  • THAT'S THE IRONY OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:31:07.210 --> 00:31:09.090
  • HE DOES THE WORK. WE LET GO.
  • 00:31:09.110 --> 00:31:12.030
  • SO I'M HAPPY TO DO THAT SO I WILL READ THIS.
  • 00:31:12.050 --> 00:31:15.130
  • - MATT: THAT WAS FANTASTIC BY THE WAY.
  • 00:31:15.150 --> 00:31:17.130
  • HONESTLY WAS FANTASTIC.
  • 00:31:17.150 --> 00:31:19.080
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:31:19.100 --> 00:31:24.270
  • - I WANT TO ACTUALLY READ A LITTLE EXCERPT
  • 00:31:24.290 --> 00:31:26.240
  • FROM THIS BOOK, AND I KNOW I'M IN TV TOO SO
  • 00:31:26.260 --> 00:31:29.050
  • I'LL BE CAREFUL, BUT THERE'S A STORY ABOUT
  • 00:31:29.070 --> 00:31:34.040
  • LETTING GO HENRI NOUWEN TOLD.
  • 00:31:34.060 --> 00:31:37.140
  • HENRI NOUWEN WAS AN AMAZING GUY, AND UM, LET
  • 00:31:37.160 --> 00:31:41.210
  • ME SEE IF I CAN FIND IT.
  • 00:31:41.230 --> 00:31:43.230
  • THIS IS BAD. NEVER MIND, I'LL JUST TELL IT.
  • 00:31:43.250 --> 00:31:45.160
  • HENRI NOUWEN WAS AN AMAZING MAN AND
  • 00:31:45.180 --> 00:31:48.190
  • HE TOLD THE STORY--
  • 00:31:48.210 --> 00:31:50.230
  • - IS IT NOUWEN AND THE CIRCUS?
  • 00:31:50.250 --> 00:31:52.220
  • - YEAH. - I FOUND IT. 125.
  • 00:31:52.240 --> 00:31:54.260
  • - OKAY, SO-- - I'M PROPHETIC.
  • 00:31:54.280 --> 00:31:58.000
  • - THANK YOU! GOT IT.
  • 00:31:58.020 --> 00:31:59.130
  • - I DON'T LIKE TO REALLY KIND TALK ABOUT THAT MUCH.
  • 00:31:59.150 --> 00:32:02.170
  • - YOU ARE VERY PROPHETIC. THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:32:02.190 --> 00:32:04.110
  • SO HENRI NOUWEN WAS A PRIEST.
  • 00:32:04.130 --> 00:32:08.050
  • HE DIED IN 1996.
  • 00:32:08.070 --> 00:32:11.010
  • AND HE'S THE ONE THAT SAID THIS THING, I'M NOT
  • 00:32:11.030 --> 00:32:13.050
  • WHAT I DO, I'M NOT WHAT I HAVE, WHAT OTHERS SAY
  • 00:32:13.070 --> 00:32:14.240
  • ABOUT ME, AND HE WENT TO THE CIRCUS, AND HE WENT
  • 00:32:14.260 --> 00:32:18.090
  • WITH SOME FRIENDS, AND HE WAS SO MESMERIZED BY THE
  • 00:32:18.110 --> 00:32:22.020
  • TRAPEZE SWINGERS, THE GUYS THAT FLY THROUGH THE
  • 00:32:22.040 --> 00:32:24.100
  • AIR, AND THEN THEY CATCH THE OTHER GUY.
  • 00:32:24.120 --> 00:32:26.220
  • AND HE WAS WATCHING THEM, AND HE STARTED GOING
  • 00:32:26.240 --> 00:32:29.240
  • EVERY DAY, AND FINALLY THEY GOT TO KNOW HIM.
  • 00:32:29.260 --> 00:32:32.040
  • IT'S CALLED THE FLYING RODLEIGHS.
  • 00:32:32.060 --> 00:32:33.260
  • IT WAS IN GERMANY.
  • 00:32:33.280 --> 00:32:35.150
  • AND THEY ALL BECAME FRIENDS, AND THEY
  • 00:32:35.170 --> 00:32:36.240
  • ACTUALLY ASKED THIS PRIEST TO TRAVEL WITH
  • 00:32:36.260 --> 00:32:38.190
  • THEM ON TOUR IN THE CIRCUS.
  • 00:32:38.210 --> 00:32:41.110
  • SO HE BEGINS TRAVELING WITH THEM AND BEGINS
  • 00:32:41.130 --> 00:32:43.100
  • REFLECTING ON THE TRAPEZE, AND HE TELLS THE STORY
  • 00:32:43.120 --> 00:32:46.040
  • ABOUT LEARNING HOW THE TRAPEZE SWINGER WORKS.
  • 00:32:46.060 --> 00:32:48.270
  • AND HE SAYS ONE DAY I WAS SITTING WITH RODLEIGH,
  • 00:32:48.290 --> 00:32:51.250
  • THE LEADER OF THE TROOP, IN HIS CARAVAN
  • 00:32:51.270 --> 00:32:54.240
  • TALKING ABOUT FLYING.
  • 00:32:54.260 --> 00:32:56.170
  • HE SAID AS A FLYER, I MUST HAVE COMPLETE TRUST
  • 00:32:56.190 --> 00:32:59.240
  • IN MY CATCHER.
  • 00:32:59.260 --> 00:33:01.270
  • SO THE CATCHER IS THE ONE THAT CATCHES THE GUY
  • 00:33:01.290 --> 00:33:03.170
  • GOING THROUGH THE AIR, RIGHT.
  • 00:33:03.190 --> 00:33:05.080
  • SO AS A FLYER, I MUST HAVE COMPLETE
  • 00:33:05.100 --> 00:33:06.270
  • TRUST IN MY CATCHER.
  • 00:33:06.290 --> 00:33:08.090
  • THE PUBLIC MIGHT THINK THAT I AM THE GREAT STAR
  • 00:33:08.110 --> 00:33:10.120
  • OF THE TRAPEZE, BUT THE REAL STAR IS
  • 00:33:10.140 --> 00:33:12.290
  • JOE, MY CATCHER.
  • 00:33:13.010 --> 00:33:15.060
  • HE HAS TO BE THERE FOR ME WITH SPLIT SECOND
  • 00:33:15.080 --> 00:33:18.030
  • PRECISION AND GRAB ME OUT OF THE AIR AS I COME TO
  • 00:33:18.050 --> 00:33:20.160
  • HIM IN THE LONG JUMP.
  • 00:33:20.180 --> 00:33:22.150
  • HOW DOES IT WORK? I ASKED.
  • 00:33:22.170 --> 00:33:24.020
  • THE SECRET, RODLEIGH SAYS, IS THAT THE FLIER
  • 00:33:24.040 --> 00:33:27.170
  • DOES NOTHING AND THE CATCHER DOES EVERYTHING.
  • 00:33:27.190 --> 00:33:30.230
  • WHEN I FLY TO JOE, I HAVE TO SIMPLY STRETCH OUT MY
  • 00:33:30.250 --> 00:33:33.090
  • ARMS AND HANDS AND WAIT FOR HIM TO CATCH ME AND
  • 00:33:33.110 --> 00:33:36.250
  • PULL ME SAFELY OVER THE APRON BEHIND THE CATCH BAR.
  • 00:33:36.270 --> 00:33:39.080
  • HE SAYS YOU DO NOTHING? NOTHING, RODLEIGH SAYS.
  • 00:33:39.100 --> 00:33:42.220
  • THE WORST THING THE FLYER CAN DO IS TRY AND CATCH
  • 00:33:42.240 --> 00:33:44.290
  • THE CATCHER. I'M NOT SUPPOSED TO CATCH JOE.
  • 00:33:45.010 --> 00:33:47.200
  • IT'S JOE'S JOB TO CATCH ME.
  • 00:33:47.220 --> 00:33:50.130
  • IF I GRAB JOE'S WRISTS, I MIGHT BREAK THEM OR HE
  • 00:33:50.150 --> 00:33:53.060
  • MIGHT BREAK MINE, AND THAT WOULD BE
  • 00:33:53.080 --> 00:33:54.270
  • THE END OF BOTH OF US.
  • 00:33:54.290 --> 00:33:56.070
  • THE FLYER MUST FLY AND A CATCHER MUST CATCH, AND A
  • 00:33:56.090 --> 00:33:59.190
  • FLYER MUST TRUST WITH OUTSTRETCHED ARMS THAT
  • 00:33:59.210 --> 00:34:02.200
  • HIS CATCHER WILL BE THERE FOR HIM.
  • 00:34:02.220 --> 00:34:04.160
  • - WOW, WOW, WOW.
  • 00:34:04.180 --> 00:34:06.040
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:34:06.060 --> 00:34:09.290
  • - WE'RE ALWAYS TRYING TO MANUFACTURE AND PROVE
  • 00:34:10.010 --> 00:34:12.230
  • OURSELVES. OH, YOU WANT ME TO READ THIS CREED.
  • 00:34:12.250 --> 00:34:14.270
  • - LET'S DO IT TOGETHER.
  • 00:34:14.290 --> 00:34:17.070
  • - SO I WOULD ASK GUYS THAT YOU MAKE IT LIKE A
  • 00:34:17.090 --> 00:34:19.120
  • PRAYER. SO IF YOU'RE WATCHING ON TELEVISION OR HERE
  • 00:34:19.140 --> 00:34:21.060
  • IN THE AUDIENCE, HOLD YOUR HANDS LIKE.
  • 00:34:21.080 --> 00:34:23.050
  • MARTIN LUTHER SAID THE POSTURE OF THE BODY IS
  • 00:34:23.070 --> 00:34:24.170
  • IMPORTANT, SO WE'RE GONNA RECEIVE FROM THE
  • 00:34:24.190 --> 00:34:26.050
  • HOLY SPIRIT, OKAY, AND CLOSE YOUR EYES,
  • 00:34:26.070 --> 00:34:29.010
  • OR OPEN THEM, OR LOOK UP.
  • 00:34:29.030 --> 00:34:31.030
  • KIND OF OPEN YOUR HEART TO THE LORD, AND TAKE A
  • 00:34:31.050 --> 00:34:34.160
  • DEEP BREATH AND SAY THIS WITH ME.
  • 00:34:34.180 --> 00:34:36.100
  • I'M NOT WHAT I DO...
  • 00:34:36.120 --> 00:34:40.120
  • I'M NOT WHAT I HAVE...
  • 00:34:40.140 --> 00:34:43.130
  • I'M NOT WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT ME...
  • 00:34:43.150 --> 00:34:47.290
  • I AM THE BELOVED OF GOD...
  • 00:34:48.010 --> 00:34:51.170
  • IT'S WHO I AM...
  • 00:34:51.190 --> 00:34:54.220
  • NO ONE CAN TAKE IT FROM ME...
  • 00:34:54.240 --> 00:34:58.050
  • I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY...
  • 00:34:58.070 --> 00:35:00.200
  • I DON'T HAVE TO HURRY...
  • 00:35:00.220 --> 00:35:03.260
  • I CAN TRUST MY FRIEND, JESUS...
  • 00:35:03.280 --> 00:35:07.210
  • AND SHARE HIS LOVE WITH THE WORLD...
  • 00:35:07.230 --> 00:35:11.060
  • AND JUST AS I'M TALKING TO YOU NOW, I JUST FEEL A
  • 00:35:11.080 --> 00:35:13.160
  • SENSE IN MY HEART THAT MANY HAVE CHAINS AROUND
  • 00:35:13.180 --> 00:35:17.220
  • THEIR HEART, AND THOSE CHAINS WERE NOT
  • 00:35:17.240 --> 00:35:21.110
  • PLACED THERE BY THEM.
  • 00:35:21.130 --> 00:35:23.210
  • THEY WERE PLACED THERE BY OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:35:23.230 --> 00:35:25.180
  • SOMETIMES PEOPLE WE LOVE, A SPOUSE, A PARENT, A
  • 00:35:25.200 --> 00:35:30.050
  • GOOD FRIEND, AND THAT CHAIN HAS BEEN THERE
  • 00:35:30.070 --> 00:35:32.190
  • FOR A LONG TIME.
  • 00:35:32.210 --> 00:35:34.180
  • IT'S HEAVY, IT'S BURDENING YOU DOWN, AND
  • 00:35:34.200 --> 00:35:37.160
  • IT'S MAKING YOU THINK YOU'RE WORTHLESS, THAT
  • 00:35:37.180 --> 00:35:39.210
  • YOU DON'T BELONG, THAT YOU'VE GOT TO DO MORE
  • 00:35:39.230 --> 00:35:42.120
  • WITH YOUR LIFE FOR YOUR LIFE TO MATTER, AND ALL
  • 00:35:42.140 --> 00:35:45.030
  • THOSE ARE LIES FROM THE ENEMY.
  • 00:35:45.050 --> 00:35:47.110
  • AND I JUST PROCLAIM OVER YOU IN JESUS' NAME THAT
  • 00:35:47.130 --> 00:35:50.000
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT IS BREAKING EVERY ONE OF
  • 00:35:50.020 --> 00:35:52.040
  • THOSE CHAINS, BROKEN, BROKEN, BROKEN.
  • 00:35:52.060 --> 00:35:55.110
  • THOSE CHAINS ARE BINDING YOU TO YOUR ADDICTIONS,
  • 00:35:55.130 --> 00:35:58.060
  • THEY'RE BINDING YOU TO YOUR DEPRESSION, YOUR
  • 00:35:58.080 --> 00:36:00.140
  • ANXIETY, YOUR LONELINESS, BUT THE LORD SAYS OVER
  • 00:36:00.160 --> 00:36:03.080
  • YOU TODAY ALL OF THAT'S BROKEN.
  • 00:36:03.100 --> 00:36:06.050
  • A NEW DAY IS COMING IN JESUS' NAME.
  • 00:36:06.070 --> 00:36:08.220
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT IS WORKING ON YOUR HEART TO
  • 00:36:08.240 --> 00:36:10.210
  • SHOW YOU BELOVED, WITH ALL YOUR IMPERFECTIONS,
  • 00:36:10.230 --> 00:36:14.280
  • GOD LOVES YOU JUST AS YOU ARE, NOT AS YOU SHOULD BE.
  • 00:36:15.000 --> 00:36:19.160
  • YOU BELONG, YOU MATTER, YOU ARE WORTHY OF LOVE
  • 00:36:19.180 --> 00:36:24.010
  • AND BELONGING, AND THAT IS WHAT THE CROSS SHOWS
  • 00:36:24.030 --> 00:36:26.190
  • US THAT GOD LOVES US AS MUCH AS HE LOVES JESUS.
  • 00:36:26.210 --> 00:36:29.260
  • HE WOULDN'T HAVE SENT JESUS IF HE LOVED HIM
  • 00:36:29.280 --> 00:36:31.130
  • MORE THAN HE LOVES US.
  • 00:36:31.150 --> 00:36:33.270
  • HE LOVES YOU. HE LOVES YOU. HE LOVES YOU.
  • 00:36:33.290 --> 00:36:37.260
  • HE NEEDS YOU TO KNOW THAT YOU MATTER
  • 00:36:37.280 --> 00:36:40.120
  • AND THAT YOU BELONG.
  • 00:36:40.140 --> 00:36:41.270
  • SO RIGHT NOW, JUST BELIEVE IT IN FAITH.
  • 00:36:41.290 --> 00:36:44.060
  • WHEN WE SAY I AM THE BELOVED, WHEN WE SAY
  • 00:36:44.080 --> 00:36:47.100
  • ABBA, I BELONG TO YOU, WE RECEIVE IT.
  • 00:36:47.120 --> 00:36:50.010
  • SO HOLY SPIRIT, IN JESUS' NAME, EVERYONE
  • 00:36:50.030 --> 00:36:52.190
  • UNDER THE SOUND OF MY VOICE IS FREE.
  • 00:36:52.210 --> 00:36:55.010
  • I PROCLAIM IT. I DON'T ASK FOR IT.
  • 00:36:55.030 --> 00:36:57.250
  • I SAY IT'S TRUE BECAUSE YOU'VE GIVEN ME AUTHORITY,
  • 00:36:57.270 --> 00:37:00.100
  • SO I PROCLAIM IT OVER YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:37:00.120 --> 00:37:02.020
  • I PROCLAIM THAT THOSE CHAINS ARE BROKEN AND
  • 00:37:02.040 --> 00:37:04.180
  • THAT YOU'RE RECEIVING WHOLENESS AND RESTORATION
  • 00:37:04.200 --> 00:37:08.140
  • IN YOUR SOUL, PATIENCE WITH YOURSELF,
  • 00:37:08.160 --> 00:37:10.160
  • YOU'RE FORGIVING YOURSELF.
  • 00:37:10.180 --> 00:37:12.120
  • GOD FORGAVE YOU; FORGIVE YOURSELF.
  • 00:37:12.140 --> 00:37:15.090
  • GOD LOVES YOU; LOVE YOURSELF.
  • 00:37:15.110 --> 00:37:18.010
  • LOVE YOUR SOUL. BE KIND TO YOURSELF.
  • 00:37:18.030 --> 00:37:20.210
  • SO YOU ARE LOVED. YOU ARE WANTED.
  • 00:37:20.230 --> 00:37:24.130
  • YOU ARE NEEDED. YOU ARE FORGIVEN.
  • 00:37:24.150 --> 00:37:27.080
  • YOU ARE CALLED. YOU BELONG.
  • 00:37:27.100 --> 00:37:29.160
  • IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN.
  • 00:37:29.180 --> 00:37:31.230
  • - WOW. BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:37:31.250 --> 00:37:33.140
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:37:33.160 --> 00:37:36.160
  • YOU ARE BELOVED, LIVING IN THE FREEDOM OF GOD'S
  • 00:37:36.180 --> 00:37:40.200
  • GRACE, MERCY AND LOVE. IT IS AVAILABLE NOW.
  • 00:37:40.220 --> 00:37:45.010
  • THIS BOOK IS LITERALLY AS WE HAVE UNFOLDED SOME OF
  • 00:37:45.030 --> 00:37:50.220
  • THIS, BOBBY, THIS SUBJECT MATTER IS MUCH BIGGER
  • 00:37:50.240 --> 00:37:54.010
  • THAN ORIGINALLY WE EVEN DISCUSSED.
  • 00:37:54.030 --> 00:37:57.270
  • IT'S OPENING UP, AND IT'S FOR EVERYONE, FOR YOU,
  • 00:37:57.290 --> 00:38:01.030
  • GET IT FOR SOMEONE THAT YOU KNOW NEEDS IT.
  • 00:38:01.050 --> 00:38:04.180
  • THE OPERATORS, THE 800 NUMBER IS RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:38:04.200 --> 00:38:07.030
  • GET IT.
  • 00:38:07.050 --> 00:38:08.130
  • - YOU TALK ABOUT NOT BEING IN A HURRY.
  • 00:38:08.150 --> 00:38:11.170
  • TALK TO US ABOUT THAT BECAUSE I THINK, HOW MANY
  • 00:38:11.190 --> 00:38:13.190
  • WERE IN A HURRY GETTING HERE TONIGHT? I WAS.
  • 00:38:13.210 --> 00:38:17.100
  • YOU KNOW YOU GET IN THE CAR, AND YOU JUST TRY TO,
  • 00:38:17.120 --> 00:38:20.180
  • YOU KNOW, AND SO BUT YOUR BOOK TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:38:20.200 --> 00:38:23.100
  • BEING IN A HURRY. SO GOOD.
  • 00:38:23.120 --> 00:38:25.130
  • - SO HURRY IS PROBABLY THE NUMBER ONE THING
  • 00:38:25.150 --> 00:38:27.130
  • THAT'S DESTROYING THE SPIRITUAL LIVES OF
  • 00:38:27.150 --> 00:38:29.050
  • PEOPLE TODAY. IT'S TAKEN TOO CASUALLY.
  • 00:38:29.070 --> 00:38:33.080
  • HURRY IS AT ITS ROOT BOTH LIVING FROM A PLACE OF
  • 00:38:33.100 --> 00:38:37.130
  • LACK AND LIVING FROM A PLACE OF SELF-IMPORTANCE.
  • 00:38:37.150 --> 00:38:40.240
  • YOU CAN'T BE COMPASSIONATE IF YOU'RE IN A HURRY.
  • 00:38:40.260 --> 00:38:44.020
  • YOU'RE NOT GONNA HEAR GOD'S VOICE CLEARLY
  • 00:38:44.040 --> 00:38:45.240
  • IF YOU'RE IN A HURRY.
  • 00:38:45.260 --> 00:38:47.270
  • YOU'RE NOT GONNA ENJOY LIFE IF YOU'RE IN A HURRY.
  • 00:38:47.290 --> 00:38:50.260
  • IF I GAVE YOU AN AMAZING STEAK DINNER RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:38:50.280 --> 00:38:53.290
  • I HOPE YOU WOULDN'T JUST EAT IT LIKE A DOG
  • 00:38:54.010 --> 00:38:55.180
  • AND WOLF IT DOWN.
  • 00:38:55.200 --> 00:38:57.100
  • WHEN IT COMES TO THE THINGS WE LOVE IN LIFE,
  • 00:38:57.120 --> 00:38:59.230
  • WE ENJOY THEM SLOWLY.
  • 00:38:59.250 --> 00:39:03.040
  • AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE LIFE OF JESUS,
  • 00:39:03.060 --> 00:39:05.030
  • HE WASN'T IN A HURRY.
  • 00:39:05.050 --> 00:39:07.000
  • HE LET HIS BEST FRIEND DIE, FOR GOODNESS SAKE,
  • 00:39:07.020 --> 00:39:09.180
  • LAZARUS, AND HE RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD LATER,
  • 00:39:09.200 --> 00:39:12.010
  • BUT THEY SAID LORD, WHY DID YOU TAKE SO LONG?
  • 00:39:12.030 --> 00:39:13.240
  • BECAUSE JESUS-- SO BEING RELAXED, NOT HURRYING IS
  • 00:39:13.260 --> 00:39:19.140
  • THE FRUIT OF TRUSTING GOD WITH YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:39:19.160 --> 00:39:22.100
  • SO WHAT HAPPENS IS WHEN WE'RE LIVING FROM A PLACE
  • 00:39:22.120 --> 00:39:24.140
  • OF LACK, IT'S NOT THAT WE MEAN TO HURRY, IT'S THAT
  • 00:39:24.160 --> 00:39:27.130
  • WE CRAM TOO MUCH IN OUR LIVES AND THEN WE ARE
  • 00:39:27.150 --> 00:39:31.070
  • CONSTANTLY HURRYING SOMEWHERE.
  • 00:39:31.090 --> 00:39:33.120
  • SO IT MAKES US FEEL OUT OF ENERGY.
  • 00:39:33.140 --> 00:39:35.150
  • IT MAKES US FEEL LIKE WE'RE DYING.
  • 00:39:35.170 --> 00:39:36.280
  • IT MAKES US FEEL UPSET AND ANGRY AT LIFE, AND
  • 00:39:37.000 --> 00:39:39.040
  • THAT DOESN'T GO AWAY BY HAVING MORE MONEY.
  • 00:39:39.060 --> 00:39:41.160
  • IN FACT, VERY OFTEN,
  • 00:39:41.180 --> 00:39:42.270
  • THAT'S WHAT PEOPLE THINK. I'M GOING TO GET MORE MONEY.
  • 00:39:42.290 --> 00:39:44.130
  • I'M GOING TO HAVE MORE TIME.
  • 00:39:44.150 --> 00:39:45.190
  • IT DOESN'T WORK OUT THAT WAY FOR MOST PEOPLE
  • 00:39:45.210 --> 00:39:46.290
  • BECAUSE BEING IN A HURRY IS IN OUR BODY.
  • 00:39:47.010 --> 00:39:50.210
  • IT'S ACTUALLY IN YOUR BODY.
  • 00:39:50.230 --> 00:39:52.100
  • SO WHAT HAPPENS IS YOU'RE IN THIS HABIT
  • 00:39:52.120 --> 00:39:54.150
  • OF ALWAYS HURRYING.
  • 00:39:54.170 --> 00:39:56.010
  • SO LIKE INSTEAD OF GETTING SOMEWHERE ON
  • 00:39:56.030 --> 00:39:58.150
  • TIME, WE SHOULD TRY AND GET THERE EARLY.
  • 00:39:58.170 --> 00:40:00.190
  • MONKS USED TO PRACTICE THIS.
  • 00:40:00.210 --> 00:40:01.290
  • IT WAS CALLED STATIO, AND THE IDEA OF STATIO WAS
  • 00:40:02.010 --> 00:40:04.260
  • LIKE THAT YOU GET THERE TEN MINUTES EARLY OR SO
  • 00:40:04.280 --> 00:40:07.120
  • SO THAT YOU CAN PRAY BEFORE WHATEVER THAT IS
  • 00:40:07.140 --> 00:40:09.240
  • YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO DO SO THAT YOU HAVE GAPS IN
  • 00:40:09.260 --> 00:40:11.020
  • YOUR LIFE, AND THEN IF YOU HIT TRAFFIC OR
  • 00:40:11.040 --> 00:40:12.210
  • SOMETHING, WELL, LOOK AT THAT.
  • 00:40:12.230 --> 00:40:14.020
  • YOU ARRIVE ON TIME, AND YOU'RE NOT ALL STRESSED
  • 00:40:14.040 --> 00:40:15.210
  • OUT AND ANGRY, AND YOU'RE ABLE TO BE COMPASSIONATE.
  • 00:40:15.230 --> 00:40:18.120
  • ACTUALLY, THERE'S A FUNNY STORY.
  • 00:40:18.140 --> 00:40:20.070
  • MALCOLM GLADWELL WRITES ABOUT THERE IN ONE OF HIS BOOKS.
  • 00:40:20.090 --> 00:40:22.240
  • THEY HAD A GROUP OF SEMINARIANS, GUYS WHO ARE
  • 00:40:22.260 --> 00:40:25.000
  • TRAINING TO BECOME PASTORS, AND THEY PUT
  • 00:40:25.020 --> 00:40:26.250
  • THEM INTO TWO GROUPS, AND BOTH OF THEM, THEY WERE
  • 00:40:26.270 --> 00:40:29.230
  • GOING TO GIVE A SPEECH ON THE GOOD SAMARITAN.
  • 00:40:29.250 --> 00:40:31.220
  • AND IF YOU'RE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE GOOD
  • 00:40:31.240 --> 00:40:33.140
  • SAMARITAN, IT'S A STORY ABOUT HOW A MAN IS BEATEN
  • 00:40:33.160 --> 00:40:35.160
  • UP ON SIDE OF THE ROAD, AND RELIGIOUS PEOPLE BLOW
  • 00:40:35.180 --> 00:40:37.220
  • RIGHT PAST HIM BECAUSE THEY'RE IN A HURRY TO DO
  • 00:40:37.240 --> 00:40:39.130
  • RELIGIOUS THINGS. AND A SAMARITAN, WHO'S THE OUTSIDER,
  • 00:40:39.150 --> 00:40:42.130
  • NON-RELIGIOUS GUY, STOPS AND HELPS HIM,
  • 00:40:42.150 --> 00:40:44.150
  • AND JESUS SAID WHO LOVED HIS NEIGHBOR?
  • 00:40:44.170 --> 00:40:46.140
  • AND THEY SAY, THE SAMARITAN, RIGHT?
  • 00:40:46.160 --> 00:40:48.190
  • SO IN THIS STORY, THESE SEMINARIANS ARE DIVIDE
  • 00:40:48.210 --> 00:40:50.230
  • INTO TWO GROUPS TO GIVE A SPEECH ON THE GOOD
  • 00:40:50.250 --> 00:40:53.080
  • SAMARITAN, AND IT WAS ALL A TRICK, AND I
  • 00:40:53.100 --> 00:40:55.030
  • FEEL BAD FOR THESE GUYS.
  • 00:40:55.050 --> 00:40:56.210
  • BASICALLY, WHAT THEY DID IS THEY HAD THEM IN A
  • 00:40:56.230 --> 00:40:58.090
  • SEPARATE ROOM, AND THEN THEY HAD LIKE AN ALLEYWAY
  • 00:40:58.110 --> 00:41:00.070
  • THAT WENT TO THE THEATER WHERE THEY WERE GOING TO
  • 00:41:00.090 --> 00:41:02.020
  • GIVE A SPEECH TO THEIR PEERS, AND THEY HIRED AN
  • 00:41:02.040 --> 00:41:04.020
  • ACTOR TO PRETEND THAT HE HAD BEEN MUGGED, TO LAY
  • 00:41:04.040 --> 00:41:07.140
  • BY THE DOOR TO SEE WHAT THE SEMINARIANS WOULD DO.
  • 00:41:07.160 --> 00:41:11.080
  • HAVING GOOD SAMARITAN ON THEIR MIND, WOULD THEY BE
  • 00:41:11.100 --> 00:41:13.020
  • A GOOD SAMARITAN TO THIS MAN?
  • 00:41:13.040 --> 00:41:16.050
  • AND THE WAY -- WHAT THEY TESTED WAS WHETHER OR NOT
  • 00:41:16.070 --> 00:41:18.080
  • THEY'RE IN A HURRY.
  • 00:41:18.100 --> 00:41:20.010
  • SO IF THE FIRST GROUP, THEY SAID, OH,
  • 00:41:20.030 --> 00:41:21.290
  • YOU'VE GOT A FEW MINUTES.
  • 00:41:22.010 --> 00:41:23.150
  • YOU MIGHT AS WELL HEAD OVER.
  • 00:41:23.170 --> 00:41:25.060
  • IT MIGHT BE GOOD TO DO.
  • 00:41:25.080 --> 00:41:26.280
  • THE SECOND GROUP, THEY WENT UP TO THEM AND SAID,
  • 00:41:27.000 --> 00:41:28.190
  • OH, YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO BE THERE FIVE MINUTES AGO.
  • 00:41:28.210 --> 00:41:30.170
  • YOU BETTER GO OVER RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:41:30.190 --> 00:41:32.050
  • IN THE GROUP THAT WASN'T IN A HURRY, 70% OF THEM
  • 00:41:32.070 --> 00:41:34.290
  • STOPPED AND HELPED THE MAN WHO HAD BEEN MUGGED.
  • 00:41:35.010 --> 00:41:37.180
  • IN THE GROUP THAT WAS IN A HURRY, THOUGH, ONLY 10%
  • 00:41:37.200 --> 00:41:40.110
  • STOPPED TO HELP THE MAN WHO HAD BEEN MUGGED.
  • 00:41:40.130 --> 00:41:42.290
  • AND THE OBSERVER SAID THIS: MEN AND WOMEN WHO
  • 00:41:43.010 --> 00:41:46.070
  • ARE TRAINING TO BECOME PASTORS AND WERE GIVING A
  • 00:41:46.090 --> 00:41:48.260
  • SPEECH ON THE GOOD SAMARITAN, SOME OF THEM
  • 00:41:48.280 --> 00:41:51.210
  • LITERALLY HAD TO STEP OVER THE ACTOR TO GET TO
  • 00:41:51.230 --> 00:41:55.220
  • THE DOOR TO GIVE THEIR SPEECH ON THE GOOD
  • 00:41:55.240 --> 00:41:59.030
  • SAMARITAN. AND DO YOU BLAME THEM? NO!
  • 00:41:59.050 --> 00:42:02.160
  • THE PEOPLE IN THE 10% GROUP WEREN'T LIKE WORSE
  • 00:42:02.180 --> 00:42:05.040
  • PEOPLE THAN THE OTHERS.
  • 00:42:05.060 --> 00:42:06.290
  • THEY'RE ALL EQUALLY GOOD PROBABLY.
  • 00:42:07.010 --> 00:42:08.170
  • THE DIFFERENCE WAS WHAT? THEY'RE IN A HURRY.
  • 00:42:08.190 --> 00:42:11.210
  • YOU CAN'T LIVE LIFE FOR GOD IN A HURRY.
  • 00:42:11.230 --> 00:42:15.160
  • YOU CAN'T. IT'S IMPOSSIBLE. YOU HAVE TO CHOOSE.
  • 00:42:15.180 --> 00:42:17.230
  • - WOW. LET ME ASK THIS.
  • 00:42:17.250 --> 00:42:22.190
  • - THAT'S KIND OF MEAN.
  • 00:42:22.210 --> 00:42:24.230
  • - OH, YEAH, NO, YOU CAN. AND THERE'S GRACE.
  • 00:42:24.250 --> 00:42:27.130
  • THAT'S THE THING, AND YEAH.
  • 00:42:27.150 --> 00:42:29.230
  • THAT DOES SOUND MEAN.
  • 00:42:29.250 --> 00:42:31.220
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:42:31.240 --> 00:42:34.210
  • THE POINT IS THAT HURRY IS RUINING OUR LIVES.
  • 00:42:34.230 --> 00:42:38.190
  • IT'S RUINING OUR JOY.
  • 00:42:38.210 --> 00:42:40.030
  • IT'S RUINING OUR FRIENDSHIPS.
  • 00:42:40.050 --> 00:42:41.200
  • AND IF WE CAN TAKE TIME AND JUST GO SLOWER, WE'RE
  • 00:42:41.220 --> 00:42:44.170
  • GOING TO BE SMARTER.
  • 00:42:44.190 --> 00:42:46.010
  • WE'RE GOING TO BE HAPPIER.
  • 00:42:46.030 --> 00:42:47.140
  • WE'RE GOING TO BE HEARING GOD'S VOICE.
  • 00:42:47.160 --> 00:42:48.270
  • WE'RE GOING TO BE MORE SUCCESSFUL.
  • 00:42:48.290 --> 00:42:50.190
  • WE'RE GOING TO SLEEP BETTER, AND THAT'S SUCH A
  • 00:42:50.210 --> 00:42:52.070
  • BETTER WAY TO BE.
  • 00:42:52.090 --> 00:42:53.250
  • - I LIKE IT. OKAY, YOU LEFT US IN A CAR.
  • 00:42:53.270 --> 00:42:56.290
  • YOU HAD AN EMOTIONAL EXPERIENCE. YOU DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS COMING.
  • 00:42:57.010 --> 00:43:01.110
  • THE CREED KIND OF CAME OUT OF THAT.
  • 00:43:01.130 --> 00:43:03.230
  • YOU HAD TO POUND THAT INTO YOURSELF, BUT YOU
  • 00:43:03.250 --> 00:43:07.100
  • TOLD ME THAT WAS A LONG PROCESS.
  • 00:43:07.120 --> 00:43:10.110
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:43:10.130 --> 00:43:12.080
  • - OF BECOMING A BOOK, OKAY?
  • 00:43:12.100 --> 00:43:13.280
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:43:14.000 --> 00:43:15.180
  • - SO WHEN DID YOU THINK YOUR EXPERIENCE AND WHAT
  • 00:43:15.200 --> 00:43:18.180
  • THIS WAS AND THIS JOURNEY THAT GOD TOOK YOU THROUGH
  • 00:43:18.200 --> 00:43:22.280
  • WAS GOING TO END UP IN 2018 HERE IN THE MONTH OF
  • 00:43:23.000 --> 00:43:27.150
  • JUNE OR WHENEVER YOU'RE WATCHING THIS AS A REBROADCAST?
  • 00:43:27.170 --> 00:43:31.190
  • WHEN DID YOU THINK THIS WAS GOING TO END
  • 00:43:31.210 --> 00:43:34.120
  • UP BEING A BOOK?
  • 00:43:34.140 --> 00:43:36.040
  • BECAUSE IT WAS A PRETTY LONG PROCESS.
  • 00:43:36.060 --> 00:43:37.240
  • - THAT'S AN EASY QUESTION TO ANSWER.
  • 00:43:37.260 --> 00:43:39.140
  • IT WAS WHEN THE MAIL STARTED POURING IN.
  • 00:43:39.160 --> 00:43:41.060
  • SO WE STARTED DOING THIS CREED ON OUR SERVICE OF
  • 00:43:41.080 --> 00:43:44.280
  • THE I DID IT IN A PREACHING SERIES BECAUSE
  • 00:43:45.000 --> 00:43:47.040
  • IT HAD DONE SO MUCH IN MY LIFE, AND I WAS JUST
  • 00:43:47.060 --> 00:43:49.030
  • GOING TO DO IT FOR LIKE SIX WEEKS, AND EVERYBODY
  • 00:43:49.050 --> 00:43:51.110
  • IN OUR CHURCH LOVED IT SO MUCH, SO WE KEPT DOING IT.
  • 00:43:51.130 --> 00:43:53.060
  • SO WE'VE BEEN DOING THIS CREED ON "HOUR OF POWER"
  • 00:43:53.080 --> 00:43:55.060
  • FOR LIKE FOUR YEARS NOW.
  • 00:43:55.080 --> 00:43:57.030
  • AND WHEN WE FIRST STARTED DOING IT -- EVEN STILL
  • 00:43:57.050 --> 00:43:59.040
  • TODAY -- PEOPLE WOULD SEND IN MAIL AND SAY, I
  • 00:43:59.060 --> 00:44:01.030
  • STARTED SAYING THIS CREED IN MY LIFE, AND IT
  • 00:44:01.050 --> 00:44:02.250
  • RADICALLY TRANSFORMED MY MARRIAGE, MY PARENTING,
  • 00:44:02.270 --> 00:44:06.020
  • AND ESPECIALLY MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
  • 00:44:06.040 --> 00:44:08.240
  • I JUST FIND -- IT'S JUST CHANGED MY LIFE.
  • 00:44:08.260 --> 00:44:10.280
  • I THINK I TOLD YOU THIS EARLIER.
  • 00:44:11.000 --> 00:44:12.290
  • PEOPLE WERE MAKING ART AND PILLOWS AND BOOKMARKS
  • 00:44:13.010 --> 00:44:14.280
  • AND SO I REALIZED I NEED TO GET THIS CREED OUT TO
  • 00:44:15.000 --> 00:44:19.030
  • PEOPLE TO EXPLAIN WHY THIS IS SO TRUE, TO
  • 00:44:19.050 --> 00:44:22.200
  • UNPACK IT FOR THEM, THAT THEY'RE NOT WHAT THEY DO,
  • 00:44:22.220 --> 00:44:25.220
  • NOT WHAT THEY HAVE AND NOT WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT
  • 00:44:25.240 --> 00:44:27.290
  • THEM, THAT THEY'RE LOVED.
  • 00:44:28.010 --> 00:44:29.280
  • - WHY DID IT TAKE FIVE YEARS TO WRITE?
  • 00:44:30.000 --> 00:44:31.210
  • WHY DO YOU THINK THE PROCESS OF EVEN
  • 00:44:31.230 --> 00:44:33.100
  • THIS BOOK TOOK SO LONG?
  • 00:44:33.120 --> 00:44:34.270
  • - WELL, IT REALLY DIDN'T TAKE FIVE YEARS TO WRITE.
  • 00:44:34.290 --> 00:44:36.150
  • IT TOOK FIVE YEARS TO FINISH.
  • 00:44:36.170 --> 00:44:38.040
  • A BIG PART OF THAT WAS EVEN JUST PUTTING THE
  • 00:44:38.060 --> 00:44:39.250
  • CREED TOGETHER, SEEING HOW IT WORKED IN PEOPLE'S
  • 00:44:39.270 --> 00:44:42.040
  • LIVES, AND THEN THERE WAS A LOT OF LIKE THESE KINDS
  • 00:44:42.060 --> 00:44:43.270
  • OF CONVERSATIONS WHERE PEOPLE -- PEOPLE
  • 00:44:43.290 --> 00:44:46.120
  • RESIST A LOT OF THESE.
  • 00:44:46.140 --> 00:44:48.040
  • THE NUMBER ONE THING THAT PEOPLE RESIST IS
  • 00:44:48.060 --> 00:44:50.030
  • I'M NOT WHAT I DO.
  • 00:44:50.050 --> 00:44:52.120
  • THAT IS THE MAIN WAY THAT PEOPLE -- IN FACT,
  • 00:44:52.140 --> 00:44:55.120
  • IT'S SO FUNNY.
  • 00:44:55.140 --> 00:44:56.280
  • MEN, THIS IS THE MAIN WAY MEN IDENTIFY ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:44:57.000 --> 00:44:59.170
  • SO YOU GO TO A PARTY AS A BUNCH OF STRANGERS, AND
  • 00:44:59.190 --> 00:45:02.050
  • YOU'RE TALKING TO DIFFERENT PEOPLE LIKE HI,
  • 00:45:02.070 --> 00:45:05.040
  • MY NAME IS BOBBY. HI, MY NAME'S MATT.
  • 00:45:05.060 --> 00:45:07.070
  • WHAT'S BOBBY GOING TO PROBABLY SAY?
  • 00:45:07.090 --> 00:45:09.070
  • WHAT DO YOU DO, RIGHT?
  • 00:45:09.090 --> 00:45:11.020
  • AND BY SAYING WHAT DO YOU DO, IT'S MY ATTEMPT TO
  • 00:45:11.040 --> 00:45:14.080
  • IDENTIFY YOU, AND THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT,
  • 00:45:14.100 --> 00:45:17.000
  • BUT YOU SEE HOW INGRAINED IT IS IN OUR CULTURE,
  • 00:45:17.020 --> 00:45:19.060
  • THAT THE MAIN WAY WE INITIALLY IDENTIFY ONE
  • 00:45:19.080 --> 00:45:21.050
  • ANOTHER ASK BY KNOWING WHAT WE DO FOR A LIVING.
  • 00:45:21.070 --> 00:45:23.200
  • SO IF I KNOW YOU'RE A PASTOR, OR I KNOW YOU'RE
  • 00:45:23.220 --> 00:45:27.100
  • A COACH, OR I KNOW YOU'RE A DOCTOR OR AN ATTORNEY
  • 00:45:27.120 --> 00:45:29.120
  • OR UNEMPLOYED, I'M GOING TO MAKE CERTAIN
  • 00:45:29.140 --> 00:45:33.020
  • ASSUMPTIONS ABOUT YOUR VIEWS, YOUR LIFE, YOUR
  • 00:45:33.040 --> 00:45:36.140
  • INCOME, AND IN A WAY, THAT QUESTION OVER AND
  • 00:45:36.160 --> 00:45:39.260
  • OVER "WHAT DO YOU DO?" TRAINS US INTO THAT.
  • 00:45:39.280 --> 00:45:43.140
  • I ACTUALLY HATE BEING ASKED THAT QUESTION, BY
  • 00:45:43.160 --> 00:45:45.260
  • THE WAY, AS A PASTOR, AND I TALK TO PASTORS ABOUT
  • 00:45:45.280 --> 00:45:48.060
  • ALL THE TIME BECAUSE WHEN PEOPLE ASK YOU -- LIKE
  • 00:45:48.080 --> 00:45:51.100
  • SAY YOU MEET SOMEBODY ON AN AIRPLANE, AND YOU
  • 00:45:51.120 --> 00:45:53.100
  • DEVELOP A FRIENDSHIP, AND THEY ASK YOU WHAT YOU DO,
  • 00:45:53.120 --> 00:45:54.270
  • I ALWAYS FEEL LIKE IT'S GOING TO BE HARD FOR ME
  • 00:45:54.290 --> 00:45:57.190
  • TO JUST BE THIS PERSON'S FRIEND, THAT I EITHER
  • 00:45:57.210 --> 00:46:00.080
  • HAVE TO BE THEIR PASTOR, OR THEY'RE GOING TO PUSH
  • 00:46:00.100 --> 00:46:02.270
  • ME AWAY BECAUSE THEY THINK I'M JUDGING THEM.
  • 00:46:02.290 --> 00:46:05.060
  • ACTUALLY, IT'S A FUNNY STORY, AND I TELL
  • 00:46:05.080 --> 00:46:06.230
  • IT IN MY BOOK.
  • 00:46:06.250 --> 00:46:08.120
  • THERE'S A GOLF COURSE NEARBY HERE.
  • 00:46:08.140 --> 00:46:10.280
  • I PROBABLY SHOULDN'T SAY THE NAME BECAUSE IT'S
  • 00:46:11.000 --> 00:46:12.230
  • JUNKY, AND IT'S $13.
  • 00:46:12.250 --> 00:46:15.130
  • THAT'S WHERE I GO GOLF, RIGHT?
  • 00:46:15.150 --> 00:46:17.230
  • IT'S $13 TO GOLF AT TWILIGHT IF YOU
  • 00:46:17.250 --> 00:46:19.280
  • CARRY YOUR OWN BAG.
  • 00:46:20.000 --> 00:46:21.200
  • SO I WENT DOWN TO THIS PLACE, AND I GOT PAIRED
  • 00:46:21.220 --> 00:46:23.110
  • UP WITH A GUY.
  • 00:46:23.130 --> 00:46:24.280
  • WE'LL JUST CALL HIM GUS, OKAY?
  • 00:46:25.000 --> 00:46:26.170
  • AND I'M PAIRED UP WITH THIS GUY GUS,
  • 00:46:26.190 --> 00:46:28.130
  • AND IT'S LIKE TWO IN THE AFTERNOON.
  • 00:46:28.150 --> 00:46:30.040
  • GUS IS ALREADY DRUNK WHEN WE START GOLFING, RIGHT?
  • 00:46:30.060 --> 00:46:33.240
  • AFTER THE FIRST TEE, WHEN HE GETS TO THE OTHERS,
  • 00:46:33.260 --> 00:46:36.040
  • HE'S GOLFING IN SANDALS.
  • 00:46:36.060 --> 00:46:37.290
  • WHEN WE GET TO THE SECOND HOLE, GUS TAKES OFF HIS SHIRT.
  • 00:46:38.010 --> 00:46:41.010
  • HE'S GOT LIKE A BIG STRAW HAT,
  • 00:46:41.030 --> 00:46:42.180
  • AND NOW HE'S SHIRTLESS, SANDAL GOLF GUY.
  • 00:46:42.200 --> 00:46:45.070
  • AND HE IS CUSSING LIKE A SAILOR, LIKE WOULD HAVE
  • 00:46:45.090 --> 00:46:49.140
  • MADE KANYE WEST BLUSH.
  • 00:46:49.160 --> 00:46:52.000
  • THE GUY IS LIKE -- BUT THIS IS HAS FUNNY.
  • 00:46:52.020 --> 00:46:54.090
  • THIS IS HAS FUNNY. I LOVED GUS.
  • 00:46:54.110 --> 00:46:57.030
  • GUS AND I HIT IT OFF.
  • 00:46:57.050 --> 00:47:01.020
  • LIKE AS IT WENT ALONG, WE WERE JUST LIKE GREAT
  • 00:47:01.040 --> 00:47:03.100
  • FRIENDS, AND WE'RE TALKING.
  • 00:47:03.120 --> 00:47:04.230
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:47:04.250 --> 00:47:06.180
  • HOLD ON.
  • 00:47:06.200 --> 00:47:08.110
  • SO WE'RE GOLFING, AND WE'RE GOING ALONG, AND
  • 00:47:08.130 --> 00:47:10.000
  • ALL OF THIS IS HAPPENING, AND LIKE WE'RE
  • 00:47:10.020 --> 00:47:11.210
  • HAVING A GREAT TIME.
  • 00:47:11.230 --> 00:47:13.090
  • HE'S LIKE, THAT'S A GREAT EVERYTHING DRIVE!
  • 00:47:13.110 --> 00:47:15.030
  • AND I'M LIKE, THANK YOU!
  • 00:47:15.050 --> 00:47:17.180
  • YOU KNOW, AND HE'S DRINKING AND CUSSING, AND
  • 00:47:17.200 --> 00:47:19.020
  • WE'RE HAVING A GOOD TIME.
  • 00:47:19.040 --> 00:47:20.280
  • I WASN'T DRINKING AND CUSSING, BUT SO WE GET TO
  • 00:47:21.000 --> 00:47:24.000
  • ABOUT HOLE 9 OR 10.
  • 00:47:24.020 --> 00:47:26.180
  • WE'RE HAVING A GREAT TIME.
  • 00:47:26.200 --> 00:47:28.050
  • WE'VE BEEN OUT THERE FOR AN HOUR AND-A-HALF.
  • 00:47:28.070 --> 00:47:29.260
  • WE'RE PROBABLY AT THE POINT WHERE IT'S LIKE,
  • 00:47:29.280 --> 00:47:31.080
  • HEY, WE SHOULD PROBABLY EXCHANGE NUMBERS AND DO
  • 00:47:31.100 --> 00:47:32.210
  • THIS AGAIN SOME TIME.
  • 00:47:32.230 --> 00:47:34.050
  • AND THEN HE DOES IT.
  • 00:47:34.070 --> 00:47:35.230
  • - OH, NO. - HE ASKS ME.
  • 00:47:35.250 --> 00:47:38.020
  • - CARL? - WHAT DO YOU DO?
  • 00:47:38.040 --> 00:47:39.230
  • - WHAT DO YOU DO?
  • 00:47:39.250 --> 00:47:41.190
  • - IT WAS MORE LIKE [SLURRING] WHAT DO YOU DO?
  • 00:47:41.210 --> 00:47:44.150
  • [LAUGHTER] AND --
  • 00:47:44.170 --> 00:47:47.210
  • - "AUTHOR" DIDN'T COME OUT.
  • 00:47:47.230 --> 00:47:50.020
  • - THE SECOND HE ASKED THAT QUESTION, MAN,
  • 00:47:50.040 --> 00:47:52.220
  • MY HEART SANK BECAUSE I HAD A FEELING.
  • 00:47:52.240 --> 00:47:55.090
  • SO AS GENTLY AND RELAXED AND NONCHALANTLY
  • 00:47:55.110 --> 00:47:58.080
  • AS I COULD, I SAID, I'M A PASTOR.
  • 00:47:58.100 --> 00:48:00.170
  • I'M A PASTOR AT A CHURCH DOWN THE ROAD.
  • 00:48:00.190 --> 00:48:02.080
  • IT'S NO BIG DEAL. AND I COULD SEE IT.
  • 00:48:02.100 --> 00:48:04.230
  • HIS COUNTENANCE, WOOM.
  • 00:48:04.250 --> 00:48:08.060
  • HE LOOKED A MIX OF ANGRY AND DISAPPOINTED.
  • 00:48:08.080 --> 00:48:14.040
  • AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON IN HIS MIND, BUT
  • 00:48:14.060 --> 00:48:16.250
  • HE PROBABLY MADE CERTAIN ASSUMPTIONS ABOUT ME THAT
  • 00:48:16.270 --> 00:48:19.140
  • I WAS JUDGING HIM, MAYBE THIS HOLE THING WAS FUNNY
  • 00:48:19.160 --> 00:48:21.180
  • TO ME LIKE I WAS LAUGHING AT HIM, NOT WITH HIM;
  • 00:48:21.200 --> 00:48:23.100
  • THAT I WASN'T REALLY HIS FRIEND, THAT THIS WAS
  • 00:48:23.120 --> 00:48:27.210
  • GOING TO BE SOME STORY I WAS GOING TO MOCK HIM ABOUT.
  • 00:48:27.230 --> 00:48:30.020
  • AND THOSE SAME KIND OF THOUGHTS WERE PROBABLY
  • 00:48:30.040 --> 00:48:32.110
  • THE VERY THING THAT WAS FUELING HIS DRINKING.
  • 00:48:32.130 --> 00:48:34.050
  • IN FACT, THEY WERE, BECAUSE IT'S SHAME THAT
  • 00:48:34.070 --> 00:48:36.220
  • FUELS THAT SENSE OF LONELINESS.
  • 00:48:36.240 --> 00:48:38.140
  • THAT'S WHY WE DRINK.
  • 00:48:38.160 --> 00:48:40.150
  • SO AT THE HEART OF IT, HE PROBABLY THOUGHT, OH,
  • 00:48:40.170 --> 00:48:42.140
  • HE'S A PASTOR.
  • 00:48:42.160 --> 00:48:44.080
  • MAYBE HE EVEN THOUGHT "HE'S TRYING TO SAVE ME."
  • 00:48:44.100 --> 00:48:45.290
  • I WASN'T TRYING TO SAVE HIM.
  • 00:48:46.010 --> 00:48:47.240
  • I WAS JUST TRYING TO BE HIS FRIEND.
  • 00:48:47.260 --> 00:48:49.230
  • THAT'S WHAT HE NEEDED. THAT'S ALL HE NEEDED.
  • 00:48:49.250 --> 00:48:51.280
  • AND SO UNFORTUNATELY, THE REST OF THE TIME, HE WAS
  • 00:48:52.000 --> 00:48:54.140
  • CORDIAL AND NICE, BUT THAT WAS IT FOR GUS.
  • 00:48:54.160 --> 00:48:58.260
  • AND VERY OFTEN THAT'S WHAT LABELING ONE ANOTHER
  • 00:48:58.280 --> 00:49:01.040
  • AND LABELING OURSELVES "I AM WHAT I DO." GUS SAW ME
  • 00:49:01.060 --> 00:49:03.250
  • AS A JUDGMENTAL PASTOR, AND HE PROBABLY SAW
  • 00:49:03.270 --> 00:49:05.250
  • HIMSELF AS A DRUNK, AND THOSE LABELS RUINED WHAT
  • 00:49:05.270 --> 00:49:09.020
  • COULD HAVE BEEN A GREAT FRIENDSHIP.
  • 00:49:09.040 --> 00:49:12.010
  • - WOW.
  • 00:49:12.030 --> 00:49:14.070
  • - I HAD ANOTHER FRIEND, A VERY GOOD FRIEND OF MINE.
  • 00:49:14.090 --> 00:49:17.050
  • HE WAS MY BEST FRIEND GROWING UP, IN FACT.
  • 00:49:17.070 --> 00:49:21.070
  • AND WE WOULD FISH TOGETHER IN THE HARBOR,
  • 00:49:21.090 --> 00:49:23.200
  • AND WE WERE ATTACHED AT THE HIP.
  • 00:49:23.220 --> 00:49:25.100
  • HE WAS SO TENDERHEARTED, EVEN THOUGH HE WAS A TOUGH GUY.
  • 00:49:25.120 --> 00:49:27.170
  • HE WOULD PUT HIS ARM AROUND ME, AND HE WOULD
  • 00:49:27.190 --> 00:49:29.290
  • BE LIKE, BOBBY, YOU'RE MY BEST FRIEND, MAN.
  • 00:49:30.010 --> 00:49:32.050
  • AND I REMEMBER AROUND 14 OR 15, HIS PARENTS WENT
  • 00:49:32.070 --> 00:49:36.120
  • THROUGH A DIVORCE.
  • 00:49:36.140 --> 00:49:38.080
  • HIS MOM WAS AN AMAZING PERSON, BUT BECAUSE OF
  • 00:49:38.100 --> 00:49:41.210
  • THAT, HIS TENDER HEART -- I SAW THAT HE STARTED TO
  • 00:49:41.230 --> 00:49:44.140
  • GO DOWN INTO THE WORLD OF DRUGS.
  • 00:49:44.160 --> 00:49:46.280
  • AND THEN I MOVED TO OKLAHOMA, ACTUALLY.
  • 00:49:47.000 --> 00:49:49.220
  • SO WE JUST PARTED WAYS, AND I NEVER SAW HIM FOR
  • 00:49:49.240 --> 00:49:51.260
  • YEARS UNTIL I MOVED BACK TO CALIFORNIA.
  • 00:49:51.280 --> 00:49:54.020
  • HE WAS THE FIRST GUY I CALLED WHEN I GOT BACK,
  • 00:49:54.040 --> 00:49:56.230
  • AND IT WAS SO GOOD TO SEE HIM. HE WAS BUFF NOW.
  • 00:49:56.250 --> 00:49:59.050
  • HE HAD LIKE A SHAVED HEAD.
  • 00:49:59.070 --> 00:50:01.050
  • HE WAS A BARTENDER, AND THERE WAS PASTOR BOBBY
  • 00:50:01.070 --> 00:50:03.180
  • AND HIS OLD BEST FRIEND, THE BARTENDER.
  • 00:50:03.200 --> 00:50:06.150
  • BUT HE WAS STILL AN AMAZING GUY, BUT FOR
  • 00:50:06.170 --> 00:50:09.080
  • WHATEVER REASON, I DIDN'T HEAR FROM HIM AGAIN.
  • 00:50:09.100 --> 00:50:12.290
  • I'D REACH OUT TO HIM, BUT I DIDN'T HEAR BACK.
  • 00:50:13.010 --> 00:50:15.220
  • AND A FEW WEEKS AGO, ACTUALLY, I GOT AN
  • 00:50:15.240 --> 00:50:19.220
  • INSTAGRAM MESSAGE FROM HIS SISTER, AND SHE SAID,
  • 00:50:19.240 --> 00:50:23.190
  • BOBBY, WE NEED PRAYER.
  • 00:50:23.210 --> 00:50:27.110
  • SO AND SO -- I'M NOT GOING TO SAY HIS NAME -- DIED.
  • 00:50:27.130 --> 00:50:31.030
  • AND I TEXTED HER WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:50:31.050 --> 00:50:33.170
  • AND HE WAS ON PAIN PILLS, AND HE TOOK SOME WITH
  • 00:50:33.190 --> 00:50:37.140
  • SOME BEER, AND AT 34, HE JUST PASSED OUT AND DIED.
  • 00:50:37.160 --> 00:50:43.150
  • AND WHEN I WENT TO THE FUNERAL A FEW WEEKS AGO,
  • 00:50:43.170 --> 00:50:47.170
  • HIS FAMILY INVITED ME TO SIT UP FRONT, AND THEY
  • 00:50:47.190 --> 00:50:50.020
  • SHOWED PICTURES OF HIS LIFE, AND I WAS IN
  • 00:50:50.040 --> 00:50:52.060
  • SEVERAL OF THOSE PICTURES BECAUSE WE DID SO MUCH
  • 00:50:52.080 --> 00:50:54.080
  • TOGETHER, AND I WAS JUST WEEPING THE WHOLE TIME.
  • 00:50:54.100 --> 00:50:56.270
  • AND AT THE END OF THE FUNERAL, HIS SISTER --
  • 00:50:56.290 --> 00:51:01.180
  • ANOTHER SISTER -- CAME UP TO ME AND SHE SAID,
  • 00:51:01.200 --> 00:51:04.080
  • BRANDON ALWAYS WANTED TO RECONNECT WITH YOU, BUT
  • 00:51:04.100 --> 00:51:06.290
  • HE WANTED TO GET THIS OUT OF HIS LIFE FIRST.
  • 00:51:07.010 --> 00:51:10.060
  • HE WANTED TO GET HIS LIFE TOGETHER, AND THEN HE WAS
  • 00:51:10.080 --> 00:51:12.160
  • LIKE, YOU GUYS ARE GOING TO BE BEST FRIENDS AGAIN.
  • 00:51:12.180 --> 00:51:14.240
  • AND I THOUGHT ABOUT THAT, MATT, FOR -- I STILL
  • 00:51:14.260 --> 00:51:18.020
  • THINK ABOUT IT, AND IT HAUNTS ME.
  • 00:51:18.040 --> 00:51:20.010
  • I WAS JUDGING MYSELF.
  • 00:51:20.030 --> 00:51:21.200
  • I THOUGHT, WHY DIDN'T I REACH OUT TO MY FRIEND
  • 00:51:21.220 --> 00:51:23.140
  • AND HELP HIM? AND I WAS THINKING BUT WHY?
  • 00:51:23.160 --> 00:51:25.240
  • WHY DID HE DO THAT?
  • 00:51:25.260 --> 00:51:27.290
  • I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO BE HIS BEST FRIEND, EVEN
  • 00:51:28.010 --> 00:51:30.240
  • WITH SOME OF THOSE THINGS IN HIS LIFE.
  • 00:51:30.260 --> 00:51:33.230
  • I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO COME ALONG SIDE HIM AND
  • 00:51:33.250 --> 00:51:35.290
  • HELP HIM THROUGH THAT STRUGGLE, OR NOT EVEN
  • 00:51:36.010 --> 00:51:37.270
  • HELP HIM, JUST BE THERE FOR HIM.
  • 00:51:37.290 --> 00:51:39.160
  • AND WE ALL DO THAT IN A WAY.
  • 00:51:39.180 --> 00:51:41.090
  • WE SAY, I'M GOING TO REACH OUT TO SO AND SO,
  • 00:51:41.110 --> 00:51:43.030
  • TO A FRIEND, TO MY KIDS.
  • 00:51:43.050 --> 00:51:44.270
  • I'M GOING TO MAKE MORE FRIENDS, OR I'M GOING TO
  • 00:51:44.290 --> 00:51:47.180
  • REACH OUT TO GOD, OR I'M GOING TO GO TO CHURCH
  • 00:51:47.200 --> 00:51:49.110
  • AGAIN WHEN I GET EVERYTHING RIGHT IN MY
  • 00:51:49.130 --> 00:51:51.080
  • LIFE, BUT THAT'S NOT HOW IT WORKS.
  • 00:51:51.100 --> 00:51:53.060
  • THAT'S EVERY OTHER RELIGION.
  • 00:51:53.080 --> 00:51:54.260
  • EVERY OTHER RELIGION SAYS GET EVERYTHING RIGHT, AND
  • 00:51:54.280 --> 00:51:57.070
  • THEN YOU CAN COME TO GOD.
  • 00:51:57.090 --> 00:51:58.290
  • CHRISTIANITY SAYS COME JUST AS YOU ARE, BROKEN,
  • 00:51:59.010 --> 00:52:02.050
  • ADDICTED, MESSED UP, DOUBTING, AFRAID, AND
  • 00:52:02.070 --> 00:52:06.130
  • JUST -- JESUS SAID IF YOU HAVE THE FAITH OF A
  • 00:52:06.150 --> 00:52:11.160
  • MUSTARD SEED, YOU CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS.
  • 00:52:11.180 --> 00:52:13.160
  • HE DOESN'T NEED ALL OF US TO BELIEVE.
  • 00:52:13.180 --> 00:52:16.120
  • IF WE JUST HAVE A LITTLE BIT, LIKE 1% OF YOU
  • 00:52:16.140 --> 00:52:18.290
  • BELIEVES, AND THE REST OF YOU DOUBTS, AND YOU JUST
  • 00:52:19.010 --> 00:52:21.200
  • GIVE THAT 1% TO GOD, HE CAN USE THAT.
  • 00:52:21.220 --> 00:52:23.250
  • SO WE DON'T GET EVERYTHING RIGHT, AND
  • 00:52:23.270 --> 00:52:26.260
  • THEN WE BELONG.
  • 00:52:26.280 --> 00:52:28.220
  • WE BELONG, AND THEN WE START TO BE HEALED, AND
  • 00:52:28.240 --> 00:52:30.130
  • THEN OUR BEHAVIOR CHANGES OVER TIME SLOWLY.
  • 00:52:30.150 --> 00:52:32.190
  • CAN I BE HONEST WITH YOU?
  • 00:52:32.210 --> 00:52:34.050
  • - PLEASE.
  • 00:52:34.070 --> 00:52:35.180
  • - I HATE THE OVERNIGHT TESTIMONIES. I HATE THEM.
  • 00:52:35.200 --> 00:52:38.230
  • THE "I WAS DRUG ADDICTED, AND MY LIFE WAS MESSED
  • 00:52:38.250 --> 00:52:42.040
  • UP, AND I GOT SAVED, AND THE NEXT DAY I WAS
  • 00:52:42.060 --> 00:52:44.100
  • PERFECT." I NEVER BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:52:44.120 --> 00:52:47.160
  • MAYBE IT'S TRUE.
  • 00:52:47.180 --> 00:52:49.040
  • THERE'S PROBABLY A HANDFUL THAT ARE TOTALLY
  • 00:52:49.060 --> 00:52:50.150
  • TRUE, BUT THAT'S NOT HELPING ANYBODY.
  • 00:52:50.170 --> 00:52:52.080
  • THAT'S NOT HELPING THE GUY WHO'S ADDICTED TO
  • 00:52:52.100 --> 00:52:54.030
  • DRUGS RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:52:54.050 --> 00:52:55.210
  • IT'S NOT HELPING THE PERSON WHO'S STRUGGLING
  • 00:52:55.230 --> 00:52:57.130
  • WITH DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY BECAUSE
  • 00:52:57.150 --> 00:52:59.010
  • TYPICALLY, THE WAY GOD TURNS AROUND OUR LIFE IS
  • 00:52:59.030 --> 00:53:01.110
  • THROUGH A PROCESS.
  • 00:53:01.130 --> 00:53:02.230
  • GOD WALKS WITH US.
  • 00:53:02.250 --> 00:53:04.090
  • HE JOURNEYS WITH US.
  • 00:53:04.110 --> 00:53:06.010
  • YOU LOOK AT HIS WORLD, LOOK AT HOW THINGS GROW.
  • 00:53:06.030 --> 00:53:09.030
  • IT DOESN'T HAPPEN OVERNIGHT.
  • 00:53:09.050 --> 00:53:10.220
  • IT'S PLANTED IN ITS SEASON. IT HAS WINTER.
  • 00:53:10.240 --> 00:53:12.270
  • IT HAS TIMES WHERE THERE IS NO GROWTH, AND THAT'S OKAY.
  • 00:53:12.290 --> 00:53:16.210
  • SO THE WAY GOD CHANGES US IS IN FRIENDSHIP, AND
  • 00:53:16.230 --> 00:53:20.100
  • THAT'S HOW HE DOES IT.
  • 00:53:20.120 --> 00:53:23.080
  • SO GOD DOES TURN PEOPLE AROUND, BUT THE BEST
  • 00:53:23.100 --> 00:53:25.240
  • TESTIMONIES ARE THE ONES THAT "I CAME TO JESUS,
  • 00:53:25.260 --> 00:53:29.020
  • AND TEN YEARS LATER, I BEAT MY ADDICTION."
  • 00:53:29.040 --> 00:53:31.110
  • THAT'S THE STORY PEOPLE NEED TO HEAR
  • 00:53:31.130 --> 00:53:33.000
  • BECAUSE IT TAKES TIME.
  • 00:53:33.020 --> 00:53:34.250
  • - I THINK, BOBBY, WHEN YOU TRULY FIND OUT WHO
  • 00:53:34.270 --> 00:53:39.170
  • JESUS IS, AND THAT IS A DAILY THING, FALLING IN
  • 00:53:39.190 --> 00:53:43.000
  • LOVE WITH JESUS, ALL OF THAT STUFF COMES TOGETHER.
  • 00:53:43.020 --> 00:53:45.210
  • - THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:53:45.230 --> 00:53:47.110
  • - THAT'S WHEN YOU START GOING, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:53:47.130 --> 00:53:49.010
  • I AM CREATED IN HIS IMAGE.
  • 00:53:49.030 --> 00:53:50.140
  • YOU START ACTING MORE LIKE JESUS, AND THAT'S
  • 00:53:50.160 --> 00:53:52.060
  • THE THING THAT WE FALL IN LOVE WITH JESUS, BUT IT
  • 00:53:52.080 --> 00:53:54.250
  • IS THAT FIRST KNOWING THAT YOU ARE LOVED.
  • 00:53:54.270 --> 00:53:58.100
  • HE GAVE HIS LIFE FOR YOU.
  • 00:53:58.120 --> 00:54:01.010
  • NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, NO MATTER WHERE YOU COME
  • 00:54:01.030 --> 00:54:03.130
  • FROM, YOU DON'T EARN IT, YOU DON'T DO ANYTHING FOR IT.
  • 00:54:03.150 --> 00:54:07.080
  • IT'S JUST THERE, AND IT'S A FREE GIFT.
  • 00:54:07.100 --> 00:54:09.180
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO PAY ANYTHING FOR IT, AND IT'S
  • 00:54:09.200 --> 00:54:11.160
  • ALWAYS THERE FOR YOU.
  • 00:54:11.180 --> 00:54:13.060
  • I AM SO PROUD OF YOU.
  • 00:54:13.080 --> 00:54:15.050
  • THIS IS RICH, AND IT'S FOR EVERYBODY.
  • 00:54:15.070 --> 00:54:18.000
  • - IT'S DEEP. THIS IS GOOD STUFF, BOBBY.
  • 00:54:18.020 --> 00:54:20.130
  • I'M ALMOST SITTING HERE THINKING THAT THE TIMING
  • 00:54:20.150 --> 00:54:23.070
  • OF THIS WITH THE --
  • 00:54:23.090 --> 00:54:28.090
  • - IT'S HEALING.
  • 00:54:28.110 --> 00:54:30.120
  • - WITH WHAT WOULD BE MAINLY CONSIDERED A
  • 00:54:30.140 --> 00:54:34.110
  • DISASTER OF WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO HEAR ON A DAILY
  • 00:54:34.130 --> 00:54:38.190
  • BASIS IN AND THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA.
  • 00:54:38.210 --> 00:54:42.060
  • - AND THE NEWS.
  • 00:54:42.080 --> 00:54:44.050
  • - I MEAN, IT'S LITERALLY I THINK THE RIGHT PLACE,
  • 00:54:44.070 --> 00:54:50.020
  • RIGHT TIME, RIGHT REASON, AND IT'S HERE,
  • 00:54:50.040 --> 00:54:54.110
  • "YOU'RE BELOVED".
  • 00:54:54.130 --> 00:54:57.010
  • AND JUST IN CASE, BOBBY, THAT WE HAD SOMEBODY THAT
  • 00:54:57.030 --> 00:55:01.110
  • TUNED IN KIND OF LATE, WE'VE GOT A COUPLE OF
  • 00:55:01.130 --> 00:55:03.210
  • MINUTES LEFT IN THE PROGRAM.
  • 00:55:03.230 --> 00:55:05.200
  • I JUST WANT YOU TO MAKE SURE YOU SAY WHAT YOU
  • 00:55:05.220 --> 00:55:07.190
  • WANT TO SAY, BUT GET SOME CONCLUSIONARY THOUGHTS IN
  • 00:55:07.210 --> 00:55:10.080
  • HERE ABOUT WHAT THIS IS AND HOW IT
  • 00:55:10.100 --> 00:55:12.010
  • CAN HELP PEOPLE.
  • 00:55:12.030 --> 00:55:13.250
  • - YEAH, THE BIG PART OF THIS BOOK IS LETTING GO
  • 00:55:13.270 --> 00:55:15.180
  • OF ALL THE WAYS YOU FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE TO PROVE
  • 00:55:15.200 --> 00:55:17.100
  • YOURSELF TO BELONG AND TO MATTER TO GOD.
  • 00:55:17.120 --> 00:55:19.180
  • HE LOVES YOU SO MUCH.
  • 00:55:19.200 --> 00:55:22.120
  • UNDERSTANDING THE FATHER'S LOVE, ONE OF THE
  • 00:55:22.140 --> 00:55:24.060
  • BEST WAYS TO DO IT IS TO BECOME A FATHER YOURSELF.
  • 00:55:24.080 --> 00:55:26.000
  • I REMEMBER WHEN I HAD MY FIRST DAUGHTER, HAVEN,
  • 00:55:26.020 --> 00:55:28.000
  • AND SHE WAS A FOUR-WEEK OLD LITTLE PEANUT, AND IT
  • 00:55:28.020 --> 00:55:30.080
  • WAS LIKE FIVE IN THE MORNING, AND I ONLY GOT A
  • 00:55:30.100 --> 00:55:32.220
  • FEW HOURS OF SLEEP, AND I'M HOLDING HER, AND I'M
  • 00:55:32.240 --> 00:55:35.010
  • LOOKING AT HER, AND I JUST THOUGHT, I WOULD DO
  • 00:55:35.030 --> 00:55:37.250
  • ANYTHING FOR YOU. I LOVE YOU.
  • 00:55:37.270 --> 00:55:40.100
  • SHE HADN'T DONE ANYTHING.
  • 00:55:40.120 --> 00:55:41.270
  • SHE DIDN'T ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING. I LOVED
  • 00:55:41.290 --> 00:55:44.170
  • HER JUST AS SHE WAS, AND I ALWAYS WILL, AND THAT'S
  • 00:55:44.190 --> 00:55:47.030
  • HOW GOD LOVES US.
  • 00:55:47.050 --> 00:55:48.250
  • WHEN WE LEARN THAT, EVERYTHING CHANGES.
  • 00:55:48.270 --> 00:55:50.060
  • - TRULY.
  • 00:55:50.080 --> 00:55:51.240
  • - THE BOOK IS AVAILABLE. THE 800 NUMBER ON YOUR SCREEN IS THERE.
  • 00:55:51.260 --> 00:55:56.150
  • MAYBE SEAL THIS BROADCAST WITH PRAYER.
  • 00:55:56.170 --> 00:55:59.040
  • I KNOW PEOPLE LOVE PRAYER.
  • 00:55:59.060 --> 00:56:02.140
  • THEY LOVE TO AGREE WITH IT.
  • 00:56:02.160 --> 00:56:04.010
  • - YOU KNOW WHAT?
