  • WITH YOU GUYS.
  • 00:01:17.050 --> 00:01:18.200
  • I JUST LOVE THE FACT THAT WE GET

  • UNWRAPPING MY LAST BOOK, "THE

  • THE BOOK IS PERSONAL TO ME.
  • 00:01:23.210 --> 00:01:25.050
  • I'M A WRITER, I LOVE WRITING.
  • 00:01:25.050 --> 00:01:26.210
  • I KNOW THE POWER OF WORDS.
  • 00:01:26.210 --> 00:01:28.020
  • WHEN YOU SPEAK YOU GET TO
  • 00:01:28.020 --> 00:01:29.160
  • INSPIRE PEOPLE, BUT WHEN YOU
  • 00:01:30.110 --> 00:01:33.110
  • WRITE, YOU GET TO SEE PEOPLE'S
  • 00:01:33.110 --> 00:01:34.030
  • LIVES FOREVER CHANGED.
  • 00:01:34.030 --> 00:01:36.080
  • THERE IS A BUILDING INTO PEOPLE
  • 00:01:36.080 --> 00:01:38.050
  • THAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU WRITE AND
  • 00:01:38.050 --> 00:01:38.270
  • PEOPLE PROCESS THIS.
  • 00:01:38.270 --> 00:01:40.010
  • I WROTE THIS BOOK BECAUSE, WELL,
  • 00:01:40.010 --> 00:01:41.010
  • I TURNED 60 YEARS OLD THIS YEAR.
  • 00:01:41.010 --> 00:01:42.210
  • AND I LIVED LONG ENOUGH TO SEE
  • 00:01:42.210 --> 00:01:45.070
  • SOME PEOPLE THAT HAD SO MUCH
  • 00:01:45.070 --> 00:01:46.180
  • TALENT, POTENTIAL, AND EVERYONE
  • 00:01:46.180 --> 00:01:48.030
  • THOUGHT THEY WOULD ACCOMPLISH
  • 00:01:48.030 --> 00:01:50.090
  • GREAT THINGS AND THEY HIT SOME
  • 00:01:50.090 --> 00:01:51.130
  • HARD MOMENTS, HAD FAILURES,
  • 00:01:51.130 --> 00:01:52.140
  • DISAPPOINTMENTS AND NOW THEY ARE
  • 00:01:52.140 --> 00:01:53.220
  • LIVING THEIR LIFE WITH SO MUCH
  • 00:01:53.220 --> 00:01:54.230
  • REGRET.
  • 00:01:54.230 --> 00:01:56.140
  • AND OTHER PEOPLE NO ONE EXPECTED
  • 00:01:56.140 --> 00:01:58.120
  • ANYTHING FROM THEM, THEY DIDN'T
  • 00:01:58.120 --> 00:02:00.280
  • SEEM TO HAVE TALENT OR ABILITY
  • 00:02:00.280 --> 00:02:03.010
  • OR POTENTIAL AND THEY HAVE LIVED
  • 00:02:03.010 --> 00:02:04.170
  • LIVES THAT ASTONISHED US ALL.
  • 00:02:04.170 --> 00:02:06.030
  • I WANTED TO WRITE A BOOK THAT
  • 00:02:06.030 --> 00:02:08.010
  • UNWRAPS THE CHARACTERISTICS OF
  • 00:02:08.010 --> 00:02:09.070
  • MEN AND WOMEN WHO LIVE THEIR
  • 00:02:09.070 --> 00:02:10.180
  • LIVES WITHOUT REGRET.
  • 00:02:10.180 --> 00:02:12.180
  • WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF
  • 00:02:14.120 --> 00:02:17.120
  • A PERSON WHO LIVES THEIR LIFE
  • 00:02:17.120 --> 00:02:18.200
  • NOT WITHOUT FAILURE, NOT WITHOUT
  • 00:02:18.200 --> 00:02:20.080
  • DISAPPOINTMENT, BUT NEVER LOOKS
  • 00:02:20.080 --> 00:02:21.080
  • BACK SAYING I DIDN'T GIVE IT
  • 00:02:21.080 --> 00:02:21.290
  • EVERYTHING I HAD.
  • 00:02:21.290 --> 00:02:22.270
  • SO I WANTED TO UNWRAP THAT.
  • 00:02:22.270 --> 00:02:25.080
  • I WANT TO REMIND PEOPLE, I DON'T
  • 00:02:25.080 --> 00:02:26.010
  • CARE IF YOU ARE 59 OR 19, IF YOU
  • 00:02:26.010 --> 00:02:29.010
  • HAVE REGRET IN YOUR LIFE THAT
  • 00:02:29.010 --> 00:02:30.260
  • CAN BE IN YOUR PAST.
  • 00:02:30.260 --> 00:02:31.200
  • THAT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE YOUR
  • 00:02:31.200 --> 00:02:32.110
  • FUTURE.
  • 00:02:32.110 --> 00:02:33.040
  • IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO BUILD A
  • 00:02:33.040 --> 00:02:34.170

  • BUT WHEN I READ THE INTRODUCTION

  • WHY DON'T YOU WALK PEOPLE

  • THE LAST ONE YEAR.
  • 00:03:16.290 --> 00:03:19.290
  • - THE METAPHOR OF THE BOOK, THE
  • 00:03:19.290 --> 00:03:21.020
  • TITLE, "THE LAST ARROW" IS BUILT
  • 00:03:21.020 --> 00:03:22.290
  • ON A STORY IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.
  • 00:03:22.290 --> 00:03:25.010
  • ELISHA AND A KING.
  • 00:03:25.010 --> 00:03:26.280
  • ELISHA SAYS TO THE KING GOD WILL
  • 00:03:26.280 --> 00:03:28.070
  • GIVE HIM A COMPLETE VICTORY IN
  • 00:03:28.070 --> 00:03:29.040
  • HIS LIFE.
  • 00:03:29.040 --> 00:03:30.130
  • THEN HE TELLS HIM TO TAKE AN
  • 00:03:30.130 --> 00:03:33.010
  • ARROW AND SHOOT IT THROUGH A
  • 00:03:33.010 --> 00:03:33.210
  • WINDOW, AND HE DOES.
  • 00:03:33.210 --> 00:03:35.040
  • THEN HE TELLS HIM TAKE THE ARROW
  • 00:03:35.040 --> 00:03:35.270
  • AND STRIKE IT.
  • 00:03:35.270 --> 00:03:37.090
  • AND THE KING STRIKES IT 3 TIMES
  • 00:03:37.090 --> 00:03:38.070
  • AND THEN HE STOPS.
  • 00:03:38.070 --> 00:03:39.140
  • ELISHA BECOMES ANGRY.
  • 00:03:39.140 --> 00:03:41.100
  • HE SAID WHY DID YOU STOP
  • 00:03:41.100 --> 00:03:41.290
  • STRIKING?
  • 00:03:41.290 --> 00:03:43.130
  • NOW YOU KNOW YOU'LL ONLY HAVE A
  • 00:03:43.130 --> 00:03:44.050
  • PARTIAL VICTORY.
  • 00:03:44.050 --> 00:03:45.040
  • WHY DIDN'T YOU KEEP STRIKING,
  • 00:03:45.040 --> 00:03:47.030
  • MAYBE IF YOU STRUCK 5 OR 6 TIMES
  • 00:03:47.030 --> 00:03:48.010
  • GOD WOULD HAVE GIVEN YOU THIS
  • 00:03:48.010 --> 00:03:48.220
  • COMPLETE VICTORY.
  • 00:03:48.220 --> 00:03:50.000
  • WHEN I READ THAT, I THOUGHT,
  • 00:03:50.000 --> 00:03:51.010
  • WHAT A STRANGE STORY.
  • 00:03:51.010 --> 00:03:52.220
  • BUT WHAT HIT ME WAS, I WONDER
  • 00:03:52.220 --> 00:03:54.130
  • HOW MANY TIMES IN LIFE I THOUGHT
  • 00:03:54.130 --> 00:03:55.230
  • I FAILED BUT I ACTUALLY JUST
  • 00:03:55.230 --> 00:03:56.130
  • QUIT.
  • 00:03:56.130 --> 00:03:58.090
  • I WONDERED HOW MANY TIMES IF I
  • 00:03:58.090 --> 00:03:59.290
  • KEPT STRIKING AND STRIKING AND
  • 00:03:59.290 --> 00:04:01.140
  • STRIKING GOD WOULD HAVE GIVEN ME
  • 00:04:01.140 --> 00:04:02.140
  • IN A SENSE A COMPLETE VICTORY.
  • 00:04:02.140 --> 00:04:03.240
  • I SETTLED FOR SO MUCH LESS.
  • 00:04:03.240 --> 00:04:05.190
  • AND THIS WAS THE DRIVING
  • 00:04:05.190 --> 00:04:07.210
  • QUESTION INSIDE OF ME.
  • 00:04:07.210 --> 00:04:09.250
  • HAVE I SETTLED FOR LESS?
  • 00:04:09.250 --> 00:04:12.110
  • HAVE I ASSUMED GOD WANT LESS OF
  • 00:04:12.110 --> 00:04:14.040
  • ME, LESS OF MY LIFE, LESS FOR MY
  • 00:04:14.040 --> 00:04:15.000
  • LIFE?
  • 00:04:15.000 --> 00:04:16.220
  • WHY IS IT IT IS SO EASY TO
  • 00:04:16.220 --> 00:04:17.280
  • SETTLE FOR LESS?
  • 00:04:17.280 --> 00:04:20.200
  • AND NOT TO LIVE OUR LIFE
  • 00:04:20.200 --> 00:04:21.260
  • BELIEVING GOD WANTS MORE FOR US?
  • 00:04:21.260 --> 00:04:23.250
  • GOD WANTS TO DO MORE IN US.
  • 00:04:23.250 --> 00:04:25.180
  • HERE I AM WRITING THIS BOOK
  • 00:04:25.180 --> 00:04:26.170
  • ABOUT STRIKING YOUR LAST ARROW,
  • 00:04:26.170 --> 00:04:28.270
  • I FINISHED THE MANUSCRIPT.
  • 00:04:28.270 --> 00:04:30.130
  • IT WAS DECEMBER 15, 2017.
  • 00:04:31.030 --> 00:04:34.030
  • MY WIFE AND I WENT TO THE
  • 00:04:34.030 --> 00:04:34.220
  • DOCTOR'S OFFICE.
  • 00:04:34.220 --> 00:04:35.170
  • I WAS GOING THROUGH ROUTINE
  • 00:04:35.170 --> 00:04:36.070
  • TESTS.
  • 00:04:36.070 --> 00:04:38.070
  • FOR SOME REASON I HAVE NOT BEEN
  • 00:04:38.070 --> 00:04:39.110
  • ABLE TO BE INSURABLE FOR ABOUT 7
  • 00:04:39.110 --> 00:04:40.080
  • YEARS.
  • 00:04:40.080 --> 00:04:43.020
  • I WAS NOT ABLE TO GET LIFE
  • 00:04:43.020 --> 00:04:43.220
  • INSURANCE, AND I JUST PUT IT AS
  • 00:04:43.220 --> 00:04:44.210
  • ONE OF THOSE ANOMALIES, I
  • 00:04:44.210 --> 00:04:46.040
  • COULDN'T PASS THESE PHYSICALS, I
  • 00:04:46.040 --> 00:04:47.240
  • COULD NOT PASS THE DIFFERENT
  • 00:04:47.240 --> 00:04:48.250
  • TESTS THEY WERE GIVING ME, I
  • 00:04:48.250 --> 00:04:49.290
  • JUST FELT LIKE MY BODY WAS
  • 00:04:49.290 --> 00:04:50.220
  • DESIGNED ODD.
  • 00:04:50.220 --> 00:04:52.260
  • I WAS TRYING TO GET LIFE
  • 00:04:52.260 --> 00:04:54.060
  • INSURANCE FOR MOSAIC.
  • 00:04:54.060 --> 00:04:55.080
  • SO THAT IF I DIED THE CHURCH
  • 00:04:55.080 --> 00:04:56.210
  • COULD RECEIVE THE BENEFIT OF MY
  • 00:04:56.210 --> 00:04:58.150
  • DEATH AND MY FAMILY.
  • 00:04:58.150 --> 00:05:01.160
  • SO I WENT TO THE DOCTOR TO GET
  • 00:05:01.160 --> 00:05:02.080
  • INSURED.
  • 00:05:02.080 --> 00:05:04.020
  • WE WENT TO HIS OFFICE.
  • 00:05:04.020 --> 00:05:05.260
  • HE LOOKED AT ME AND I SAID, YOU
  • 00:05:05.260 --> 00:05:06.180
  • HAVE CANCER.
  • 00:05:06.180 --> 00:05:07.170
  • - DECEMBER 2016.
  • 00:05:08.040 --> 00:05:11.040
  • - SIXTEEN, RIGHT, 2016.
  • 00:05:11.040 --> 00:05:13.280
  • IT HAS BEEN A YEAR.
  • 00:05:13.280 --> 00:05:16.050
  • - BEYOND A YEAR.
  • 00:05:16.050 --> 00:05:17.010
  • YOU ARE STILL HERE.
  • 00:05:17.010 --> 00:05:17.240
  • - IT WAS EXACTLY A YEAR AGO NOW
  • 00:05:18.160 --> 00:05:21.160
  • THAT I HAD SURGERY.
  • 00:05:21.160 --> 00:05:23.130
  • THAT I WENT UNDER THE KNIFE FOR
  • 00:05:23.130 --> 00:05:24.080
  • SIX HOURS.
  • 00:05:24.150 --> 00:05:27.150
  • THE CANCER HAD TAKEN OVER
  • 00:05:27.150 --> 00:05:29.120
  • SECTIONS OF MY BODY.
  • 00:05:29.120 --> 00:05:31.220
  • IT WAS SUCH A STRANGE THING TO
  • 00:05:31.220 --> 00:05:34.170
  • HEAR THAT I HAD CANCER, TO GO
  • 00:05:34.170 --> 00:05:36.010
  • HOME THAT NIGHT.
  • 00:05:36.010 --> 00:05:37.280
  • MY FAMILY FINALLY WENT TO SLEEP.
  • 00:05:37.280 --> 00:05:38.230
  • IT WAS A ROUGH DAY.
  • 00:05:38.230 --> 00:05:40.200
  • AND, FRANKLY, THERE WAS A HIGH
  • 00:05:40.200 --> 00:05:41.200
  • VOLUME OF CANCER.
  • 00:05:41.200 --> 00:05:42.160
  • THEY DID NOT KNOW HOW IT WAS
  • 00:05:42.160 --> 00:05:44.000
  • GOING TO GO FOR ME.
  • 00:05:44.000 --> 00:05:45.140
  • I REALIZED I NEEDED TO FINISH
  • 00:05:45.140 --> 00:05:46.270
  • THE BOOK IN THE NEXT 3 WEEKS
  • 00:05:46.270 --> 00:05:48.100
  • BEFORE I HAVE SURGERY IN CASE
  • 00:05:48.100 --> 00:05:49.250
  • THIS IS THE END OF MY STORY.
  • 00:05:49.250 --> 00:05:51.110
  • I THOUGHT, WHAT A PECULIAR STORY
  • 00:05:51.110 --> 00:05:53.030
  • MY LAST BOOK MIGHT BE "THE LAST
  • 00:05:53.030 --> 00:05:53.250
  • ARROW."
  • 00:05:53.250 --> 00:05:56.050
  • AND I OPENED UP THE MANUSCRIPT
  • 00:05:56.050 --> 00:05:57.210
  • TO PAGE 93 IN THE BOOK.
  • 00:05:57.210 --> 00:05:59.120
  • OR 92, I JUST HAPPENED TO OPEN
  • 00:06:00.140 --> 00:06:03.140
  • WHERE I FINISHED EDITING.
  • 00:06:03.140 --> 00:06:06.010
  • THE VERY FIRST SENTENCE I READ
  • 00:06:06.010 --> 00:06:07.020
  • WAS, I NEED TO TELL YOU BEFORE I
  • 00:06:07.020 --> 00:06:08.260
  • HEAR IT FROM SOMEONE ELSE THAT
  • 00:06:08.260 --> 00:06:09.190
  • I'M DYING.
  • 00:06:09.190 --> 00:06:12.080
  • I WROTE THAT SENTENCE A YEAR
  • 00:06:12.080 --> 00:06:14.040
  • BEFORE THEY TOLD ME I HAD
  • 00:06:14.040 --> 00:06:14.230
  • CANCER.
  • 00:06:14.230 --> 00:06:16.160
  • IT WAS THE MOST SURREAL THING TO
  • 00:06:16.160 --> 00:06:18.060
  • READ MY OWN WORDS TO ME A YEAR
  • 00:06:18.060 --> 00:06:20.230
  • LATER, ALMOST AS IF GOD GAVE ME
  • 00:06:21.060 --> 00:06:24.060
  • AN INSIGHT THE YEAR BEFORE AND
  • 00:06:24.060 --> 00:06:25.280
  • PUT IT IN A TIME CAPLET FOR ME
  • 00:06:25.280 --> 00:06:27.220
  • LATER.
  • 00:06:27.220 --> 00:06:29.180
  • BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT SENTENCE
  • 00:06:29.180 --> 00:06:31.210
  • IN THAT BOOK IS NOT THAT
  • 00:06:31.210 --> 00:06:32.230
  • SENTENCE, IT MIGHT BE THE NEXT
  • 00:06:32.230 --> 00:06:34.030
  • ONE, BECAUSE, AFTER ALL, VERY
  • 00:06:34.030 --> 00:06:37.000
  • FEW PEOPLE KNOW WHO I AM AND IF
  • 00:06:37.000 --> 00:06:39.160
  • I DIE, SOME PEOPLE MAY MISS ME
  • 00:06:40.030 --> 00:06:43.030
  • BUT OTHERS WON'T BE AFFECTED.
  • 00:06:43.030 --> 00:06:44.240
  • BUT, WHAT IT SAYS, I NEED TO
  • 00:06:44.240 --> 00:06:45.140
  • TELL YOU BEFORE YOU HEAR IT FROM
  • 00:06:45.140 --> 00:06:46.100
  • SOMEONE ELSE, I'M DYING.
  • 00:06:46.100 --> 00:06:47.010
  • THE NEXT SENTENCE SAYS, BUT SO
  • 00:06:47.010 --> 00:06:47.220
  • ARE YOU.
  • 00:06:47.220 --> 00:06:49.100
  • THAT IS THE PART THAT IS
  • 00:06:49.100 --> 00:06:49.290
  • IMPORTANT.
  • 00:06:49.290 --> 00:06:51.250
  • MOST OF US LIVE OUR LIVES UNDER
  • 00:06:51.250 --> 00:06:53.180
  • THE ILLUSION WE ARE NOT DYING.
  • 00:06:53.180 --> 00:06:54.290
  • WE LIVE OUR LIVES AS IF WE ARE
  • 00:06:54.290 --> 00:06:55.280
  • GOING TO HAVE THESE DAYS FOREVER
  • 00:06:55.280 --> 00:06:57.070
  • HERE ON EARTH.
  • 00:06:57.070 --> 00:06:58.130
  • WE LIVE OUR LIFE AS IF THIS LIFE
  • 00:06:58.130 --> 00:06:59.210
  • DOES NOT HAVE VALUE.
  • 00:06:59.210 --> 00:07:01.050
  • AND I THINK A PART OF THE
  • 00:07:01.050 --> 00:07:02.030
  • PROBLEM IS WE KNOW THERE IS
  • 00:07:02.030 --> 00:07:03.180
  • ETERNITY.
  • 00:07:03.180 --> 00:07:05.220
  • WE KNOW WE GET THIS INCREDIBLE
  • 00:07:05.220 --> 00:07:07.140
  • GIFT, ETERNITY WITH GOD.
  • 00:07:07.140 --> 00:07:09.130
  • BUT FOR SOME REASON WE END UP
  • 00:07:09.130 --> 00:07:10.210
  • TREATING THIS LIFE AS IF IT DOES
  • 00:07:10.210 --> 00:07:12.030
  • NOT HAVE A VALUE GOD HAS GIVEN
  • 00:07:12.030 --> 00:07:13.140
  • IT TO US AS A GIFT.
  • 00:07:13.240 --> 00:07:16.240
  • AND IF WE UNDERSTOOD THAT OUR
  • 00:07:16.240 --> 00:07:18.080
  • LIFE WAS TIME DATED, THAT WE
  • 00:07:18.080 --> 00:07:20.250
  • WERE ALL DYING AND WE TOOK OUR
  • 00:07:20.250 --> 00:07:22.130
  • FIRST BREATH, WE ARE MOVING
  • 00:07:22.130 --> 00:07:24.070
  • TOWARDS OUR LAST BREATH, MAYBE
  • 00:07:24.070 --> 00:07:26.180
  • WE WOULD BE MORE COMMITTED TO
  • 00:07:26.180 --> 00:07:27.090
  • LIVING OUR LIFE SO WE COULD BE
  • 00:07:27.090 --> 00:07:28.100
  • BREATHLESS.
  • 00:07:28.100 --> 00:07:29.080
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:07:30.040 --> 00:07:33.040
  • - YOU ARE CORRECT.
  • 00:07:33.040 --> 00:07:35.150
  • IT IS PAGE 93.
  • 00:07:35.150 --> 00:07:38.080
  • I'M DYING BUT SO ARE YOU.
  • 00:07:38.080 --> 00:07:38.290
  • THIS SHOULDN'T BE SOBERING OR
  • 00:07:38.290 --> 00:07:41.030
  • DEPRESSING.
  • 00:07:41.030 --> 00:07:42.190
  • IT SHOULD ACTUALLY BE
  • 00:07:42.190 --> 00:07:44.240
  • ENLIGHTENING AND POWERING
  • 00:07:44.240 --> 00:07:46.170
  • BECAUSE THE GREATEST MISTAKE WE
  • 00:07:46.170 --> 00:07:48.110
  • MAKE IN LIFE IS TO TRY TO
  • 00:07:48.110 --> 00:07:50.030
  • CONTROL THE THINGS WE HAVE NO
  • 00:07:50.030 --> 00:07:51.000
  • CONTROL OVER AND TO RELINQUISH
  • 00:07:51.000 --> 00:07:52.240
  • CONTROL OVER THE THINGS WE CAN
  • 00:07:52.240 --> 00:07:54.190
  • AFFECT AND CHANGE.
  • 00:07:54.190 --> 00:07:56.280
  • WOULDN'T IT BE IRONIC IF INSTEAD
  • 00:07:56.280 --> 00:07:59.050
  • SENDING US THROUGH A SERIES OF
  • 00:07:59.050 --> 00:08:01.160
  • PROCEDURES TO SEE IF WE ARE AT
  • 00:08:01.190 --> 00:08:04.190
  • RISK OF DYING, LIFE INSURANCE
  • 00:08:04.220 --> 00:08:07.220
  • WAS DETERMINED AFTER A BATTERY
  • 00:08:07.220 --> 00:08:08.240
  • OF TESTS, CHECKING TO SEE
  • 00:08:08.240 --> 00:08:10.010
  • WHETHER WE ARE ACTUALLY ALIVE.
  • 00:08:10.040 --> 00:08:13.040
  • AND SO, LET ME JUST SAY THAT THE
  • 00:08:16.050 --> 00:08:19.050
  • ALMOST PROPHETIC TIME CAPSULE
  • 00:08:19.050 --> 00:08:20.170
  • CALLED "THE LAST ARROW" IS FOR
  • 00:08:20.170 --> 00:08:22.060
  • YOU.
  • 00:08:22.070 --> 00:08:25.070
  • LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, WE
  • 00:08:25.070 --> 00:08:26.280
  • HAVE BEEN LOOKING FORWARD TO
  • 00:08:26.280 --> 00:08:28.080
  • THIS DAY HERE AT TBN.
  • 00:08:28.080 --> 00:08:30.050
  • WE ARE NOW 2018.
  • 00:08:31.250 --> 00:08:34.250
  • THIS BOOK DESCRIBES, WHAT WE
  • 00:08:35.200 --> 00:08:38.200
  • TALKED ABOUT SO FAR ON THIS
  • 00:08:38.200 --> 00:08:39.250

  • WHAT IS THE REPORT TODAY, NOW,

  • ABOUT YOU AND YOUR HEALTH AND

  • LAST BOOK?
  • 00:08:54.270 --> 00:08:57.070
  • WHAT SAY YE ABOUT YE?
  • 00:08:57.080 --> 00:09:00.100
  • - YESTERDAY, I SAW MY SURGEON,
  • 00:09:00.100 --> 00:09:02.160
  • DR. KHALILI, AND HE TOLD ME WE
  • 00:09:02.160 --> 00:09:04.280
  • WOULD HAVE AN INTIMATE
  • 00:09:04.280 --> 00:09:06.050
  • RELATIONSHIP AFTER THE SURGERY.
  • 00:09:06.160 --> 00:09:09.160
  • HE TOLD ME THAT THEY HAD BEEN

  • DOING MICRO TESTING AND I'M
  • 00:09:10.170 --> 00:09:11.160
  • CANCER FREE.
  • 00:09:11.160 --> 00:09:12.130
  • - WOW!
  • 00:09:12.130 --> 00:09:13.200
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:09:13.200 --> 00:09:16.150
  • - THAT IS FANTASTIC.
  • 00:09:16.150 --> 00:09:17.110
  • - IT IS SO GOOD.

  • I'M SO EXCITED.
  • 00:09:18.240 --> 00:09:21.060
  • I'M HERE TO STAY FOR AT LEAST
  • 00:09:21.060 --> 00:09:21.290
  • ANOTHER DAY.
  • 00:09:21.290 --> 00:09:24.020
  • (LAUGHTER).
  • 00:09:24.020 --> 00:09:26.270

  • BARBARIAN LIFE.

  • - WELL, MAYBE THAT MEANS I

  • UNDERSTAND YOU, THAT MEANS YOU
  • 00:10:15.030 --> 00:10:17.080

  • WE ARE VERY CLOSE TO THE SAME

  • AGE.
  • 00:10:27.290 --> 00:10:30.120

  • AND HE ENJOYS CHALLENGING HIS

  • AUDIENCES TO LIVE WITH A

  • RELENTLESS AMBITION FOR LIFE.
  • 00:12:04.000 --> 00:12:05.130
  • IRWIN MCMANUS HERE ON PRAISE.
  • 00:12:05.130 --> 00:12:07.020
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:12:10.100 --> 00:12:13.100
  • - NOW THAT WE IN THE YEAR 2018

  • ESTABLISHED YOU ARE HERE AND

  • STAYING WITH US, I WILL GET INTO
  • 00:12:20.000 --> 00:12:22.030
  • WHAT YOU-- IF YOU READ MUCH
  • 00:12:22.180 --> 00:12:25.180
  • ABOUT YOU, YOU HAVE
  • 00:12:25.180 --> 00:12:28.120
  • SELF-DESCRIBED YOURSELF AS AN
  • 00:12:28.120 --> 00:12:29.150
  • ICONOCLAST.
  • 00:12:29.220 --> 00:12:32.220
  • AND A LOT OF PEOPLE MIGHT HAVE
  • 00:12:32.220 --> 00:12:34.020
  • TO GOOGLE THAT WORD AND FIGURE
  • 00:12:34.020 --> 00:12:35.010
  • IT OUT.
  • 00:12:35.010 --> 00:12:36.260
  • WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU?
  • 00:12:36.260 --> 00:12:38.050
  • WHY ARE YOU AN ICONOCLAST?
  • 00:12:38.050 --> 00:12:41.020
  • - I DON'T KNOW IF I WOULD SELF
  • 00:12:41.020 --> 00:12:42.100
  • DESCRIBE AS MUCH AS I WAS
  • 00:12:42.100 --> 00:12:43.130
  • DESCRIBED.
  • 00:12:43.130 --> 00:12:44.280
  • I EMBRACED IT.
  • 00:12:44.280 --> 00:12:45.240
  • I USED TO FIGHT IT.
  • 00:12:45.240 --> 00:12:47.080
  • AS YOU GET OLDER, YOU ACCEPT THE
  • 00:12:47.080 --> 00:12:48.000
  • THINGS PEOPLE SAY THAT ARE
  • 00:12:48.000 --> 00:12:50.170
  • ACTUALLY TRUE.
  • 00:12:50.170 --> 00:12:52.010
  • AND YOU STOP FIGHTING IT.
  • 00:12:52.010 --> 00:12:54.190
  • I THINK PART OF THE DIFFICULTY
  • 00:12:54.190 --> 00:12:56.030
  • FOR ME WAS, I DIDN'T GROW UP IN
  • 00:12:56.030 --> 00:12:56.250
  • THE CHURCH.
  • 00:12:56.250 --> 00:12:58.230
  • I'M AN IMMIGRANT FROM
  • 00:12:58.230 --> 00:12:59.100
  • EL SALVADOR.
  • 00:12:59.100 --> 00:13:00.140
  • SPANISH WAS MY FIRST LANGUAGE.
  • 00:13:00.140 --> 00:13:02.150
  • MY FAMILY WAS ECLECTIC.
  • 00:13:02.150 --> 00:13:04.130
  • MY GRANDFATHER WAS AN ATHEIST TO
  • 00:13:05.050 --> 00:13:08.050
  • BELIEVED IN REINCARNATION.
  • 00:13:08.050 --> 00:13:09.170
  • MY GRANDMOTHER WAS ROMAN
  • 00:13:09.170 --> 00:13:11.000
  • CATHOLIC BUT NEVER TOOK ME TO
  • 00:13:11.000 --> 00:13:11.250
  • MASS.
  • 00:13:11.250 --> 00:13:13.020
  • MY REAL FATHER WAS JEWISH AND
  • 00:13:13.020 --> 00:13:14.120
  • PORTUGUESE, WHO LATER BECAME A
  • 00:13:14.120 --> 00:13:15.220
  • MORMON, AND MY MOM BECAME A
  • 00:13:15.220 --> 00:13:18.010
  • BUDDHIST, SO, I WAS COMPLETELY
  • 00:13:18.010 --> 00:13:19.190
  • CONFUSED.
  • 00:13:20.020 --> 00:13:23.020
  • I THINK A HUGE PART OF IT FOR ME
  • 00:13:24.070 --> 00:13:27.070
  • IS THAT I BEGAN AT AN EARLY AGE
  • 00:13:27.070 --> 00:13:30.050
  • ON A DESPERATE SEARCH TO MAKE
  • 00:13:30.050 --> 00:13:31.110
  • SENSE OF MY LIFE.
  • 00:13:31.110 --> 00:13:33.290
  • BY THE TIME I WAS 12 YEARS OLD I
  • 00:13:33.290 --> 00:13:35.010
  • READ EVERY MYTHOLOGY BOOK IN THE
  • 00:13:35.010 --> 00:13:36.150
  • LIBRARY.
  • 00:13:36.150 --> 00:13:37.080
  • I THOUGHT MAYBE IN THOSE MYTHS I
  • 00:13:37.130 --> 00:13:40.130
  • COULD FIND WHAT IT MEANS TO BE
  • 00:13:40.130 --> 00:13:42.010
  • HUMAN, WHAT IT MEANS TO BE
  • 00:13:42.010 --> 00:13:42.200
  • ALIVE.
  • 00:13:42.200 --> 00:13:45.110
  • AND BY THE TIME I WAS 12 YEARS
  • 00:13:45.110 --> 00:13:46.030
  • OLD I WAS IN A PSYCHIATRIC
  • 00:13:46.030 --> 00:13:48.040
  • CHAIR, IN AND OUT OF A HOSPITAL.
  • 00:13:48.040 --> 00:13:49.040
  • AND I COULD TELL THAT I WAS SO
  • 00:13:49.040 --> 00:13:51.140
  • SHATTERED AND BROKEN, NO ONE
  • 00:13:51.140 --> 00:13:53.270
  • THOUGHT I WOULD EVER SURVIVE IT,
  • 00:13:53.270 --> 00:13:55.090
  • REALLY.
  • 00:13:55.090 --> 00:13:57.120
  • I BECAME INCREDIBLY INCLUSIVE,
  • 00:13:57.140 --> 00:14:00.160
  • INTROVERTED, DISCONNECTED.
  • 00:14:00.160 --> 00:14:02.120
  • NONSOCIAL.
  • 00:14:02.120 --> 00:14:04.170
  • SO WHEN I GAVE MY LIFE TO JESUS,
  • 00:14:04.170 --> 00:14:06.270
  • IT WAS NOT ABOUT RECEIVING
  • 00:14:06.270 --> 00:14:08.120
  • SOMETHING WHEN I DIED.
  • 00:14:08.120 --> 00:14:09.290
  • I WAS DESPERATELY SEARCHING FOR
  • 00:14:09.290 --> 00:14:12.180
  • A MEANING TO BE ALIVE.
  • 00:14:12.180 --> 00:14:14.120
  • SO WHEN PEOPLE ASK ME WHAT DO I
  • 00:14:14.120 --> 00:14:16.070
  • DO TO SEE THE WORLD DIFFERENTLY
  • 00:14:16.070 --> 00:14:17.030
  • I SAID NO, I WORK HARD TO SEE
  • 00:14:17.030 --> 00:14:18.200
  • THE WORLD THE SAME.
  • 00:14:18.200 --> 00:14:19.110
  • I USED TO FIGHT TO SEE THE WORLD
  • 00:14:19.110 --> 00:14:21.290
  • DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:14:21.290 --> 00:14:22.250
  • BECAUSE WHEN I BECAME A FOLLOWER
  • 00:14:22.250 --> 00:14:24.060
  • OF JESUS, I WANTED TO FIT INTO
  • 00:14:24.060 --> 00:14:26.020
  • THE CHURCH.
  • 00:14:26.020 --> 00:14:26.260
  • I THINK EVERYONE WANTS TO BELONG
  • 00:14:26.260 --> 00:14:27.190
  • AND BE LOVED.
  • 00:14:27.190 --> 00:14:30.190
  • I KEPT DOING THING THAT VIOLATED
  • 00:14:30.190 --> 00:14:31.250
  • THE WAY THE CHURCH THOUGHT
  • 00:14:31.250 --> 00:14:33.150
  • THINGS SHOULD BE DONE.
  • 00:14:33.150 --> 00:14:34.290
  • I NEVER DID IT IN REBELLION.
  • 00:14:34.290 --> 00:14:36.170
  • I DID IT BECAUSE IT SEEMED TO BE
  • 00:14:36.170 --> 00:14:38.130
  • OBVIOUS IT WAS THE RIGHT THING
  • 00:14:38.130 --> 00:14:40.000
  • TO DO. TWO YEARS AGO ON EASTER
  • 00:14:40.000 --> 00:14:42.040
  • WE DID A SURVEY AT MOSAIC.
  • 00:14:42.040 --> 00:14:43.040
  • RIGHT ON THE CORNER OF HOLLYWOOD
  • 00:14:43.040 --> 00:14:45.040
  • BOULEVARD.
  • 00:14:45.040 --> 00:14:46.250
  • I SAID, IF YOU ARE AN ATHEIST,
  • 00:14:47.200 --> 00:14:50.200
  • IF GOD IS OUT THERE, I WOULD
  • 00:14:50.200 --> 00:14:51.180
  • LOVE FOR HIM TO FIND ME, I WANT
  • 00:14:51.180 --> 00:14:52.280
  • YOU TO RESPOND RIGHT NOW, WE
  • 00:14:52.280 --> 00:14:54.170
  • WILL USE THESE LIGHTS.
  • 00:14:54.170 --> 00:14:55.250
  • WE HAD OVER ONE THOUSAND ADULTS
  • 00:14:55.250 --> 00:14:56.240
  • SAY I'M AN ATHEIST.
  • 00:14:56.240 --> 00:14:58.090
  • BUT IF GOD WERE OUT THERE I WANT
  • 00:14:58.090 --> 00:14:59.110
  • HIM TO FIND ME.
  • 00:14:59.110 --> 00:15:01.130
  • I DON'T KNOW A LOT OF CHURCHES
  • 00:15:01.130 --> 00:15:03.110
  • THAT ARE JAM-PACKED WITH
  • 00:15:03.110 --> 00:15:03.290
  • ATHEISTS.
  • 00:15:03.290 --> 00:15:05.130
  • WITH AGNOSTICS, BUDDHISTS, WITH
  • 00:15:05.250 --> 00:15:08.250
  • MUSLIMS, WITH HINDUS, AND I
  • 00:15:08.250 --> 00:15:11.060
  • THINK A LOT OF IT IS GENUINELY
  • 00:15:11.060 --> 00:15:12.020
  • BECAUSE GOD NEEDS TO CALL OUT
  • 00:15:12.170 --> 00:15:15.170
  • PEOPLE WHO SEE THE WORLD
  • 00:15:15.170 --> 00:15:16.050
  • DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:15:16.050 --> 00:15:18.160
  • I SPENT A LOT OF MY LIFE TRYING
  • 00:15:18.160 --> 00:15:19.100
  • TO SEE THE WORLD THE SAME.
  • 00:15:19.100 --> 00:15:20.120
  • I LOVE BEING 59.
  • 00:15:20.120 --> 00:15:21.270
  • I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL I'M 60.
  • 00:15:22.160 --> 00:15:25.160
  • WHO DO I HAVE TO LISTEN TO NOW?
  • 00:15:25.160 --> 00:15:27.100
  • WHOSE OPINION DO I HAVE TO CARE
  • 00:15:28.050 --> 00:15:31.050
  • ABOUT NOW OTHER THAN MAYBE MY
  • 00:15:31.050 --> 00:15:32.020
  • WIFE WHEN SHE SAYS REALLY?
  • 00:15:32.020 --> 00:15:33.130
  • ARE YOU GOING TO KEEP THAT
  • 00:15:33.130 --> 00:15:34.020
  • BEARD?
  • 00:15:34.070 --> 00:15:37.070
  • WHEN SHE SAYS ARE YOU GOING TO
  • 00:15:37.070 --> 00:15:37.280
  • DRESS LIKE THAT?
  • 00:15:37.280 --> 00:15:40.030
  • THE ONLY VOICE I CARE ABOUT
  • 00:15:40.030 --> 00:15:41.010
  • HEARING WELL DONE IS THE VOICE
  • 00:15:41.010 --> 00:15:42.230
  • OF JESUS.
  • 00:15:42.230 --> 00:15:43.130
  • AND I ACTUALLY THINK IT IS
  • 00:15:43.140 --> 00:15:46.140
  • IMPORTANT TO SEE THE WORLD
  • 00:15:46.140 --> 00:15:48.140
  • DIFFERENTLY AND THAT-- I
  • 00:15:48.140 --> 00:15:51.010
  • REMEMBER ONE TIME I WAS AT A
  • 00:15:51.010 --> 00:15:53.110
  • SPEAKING EVENT.
  • 00:15:53.110 --> 00:15:54.070
  • I FELT LIKE GOD WAS TELLING ME
  • 00:15:54.070 --> 00:15:54.280
  • TO SAY SOMETHING.
  • 00:15:54.280 --> 00:15:55.290
  • I DIDN'T WANT TO SAY IT BECAUSE
  • 00:15:55.290 --> 00:15:57.000
  • I KNEW IT WOULD CREATE A HUGE
  • 00:15:57.000 --> 00:15:57.280
  • DISRUPTION, I SAID GOD, I DON'T
  • 00:15:57.280 --> 00:15:59.060
  • WANT TO SAY THAT.
  • 00:15:59.060 --> 00:16:00.160
  • I WANT TO BRING A MESSAGE THAT
  • 00:16:00.160 --> 00:16:01.290
  • IS MORE EASILY RECEIVED.
  • 00:16:01.290 --> 00:16:04.100
  • I FEEL LIKE GOD SAID TO ME, I
  • 00:16:04.100 --> 00:16:05.210
  • DON'T CARE IF PEOPLE LIKE YOU.
  • 00:16:05.210 --> 00:16:07.220
  • I CARE IF YOU TELL THEM WHAT
  • 00:16:07.220 --> 00:16:10.200
  • THEY NEED TO KNOW SO THAT 20
  • 00:16:10.200 --> 00:16:11.280
  • YEARS FROM NOW THEY CAN BE
  • 00:16:11.280 --> 00:16:13.230
  • RELEVANT.
  • 00:16:13.230 --> 00:16:14.110
  • I FEEL LIKE THAT IS MY ROLE:MOST
  • 00:16:14.110 --> 00:16:16.040
  • OF MY LIFE I FELT LIKE I WAS
  • 00:16:16.080 --> 00:16:19.080
  • BORN IN THE FUTURE AND I CAME
  • 00:16:19.080 --> 00:16:22.000
  • BACK INTO OUR TIME TO CALL US
  • 00:16:22.000 --> 00:16:23.030
  • INTO THE FUTURE GOD HAS FOR US.
  • 00:16:23.030 --> 00:16:24.210
  • I USED TO RESIST THAT.
  • 00:16:24.210 --> 00:16:25.240
  • NOW I GO, NO, MOSAIC IS JUST A
  • 00:16:25.240 --> 00:16:27.150
  • RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ARM.
  • 00:16:27.150 --> 00:16:29.210
  • MOSAIC IS EXPOSED TO EXPERIMENT
  • 00:16:30.200 --> 00:16:33.200
  • AND RISK SO THAT THE WHOLE
  • 00:16:33.200 --> 00:16:35.040
  • CHURCH CAN BENEFIT.
  • 00:16:35.040 --> 00:16:36.160
  • I JUST SAW THIS ARTICLE THAT
  • 00:16:36.160 --> 00:16:37.100
  • SAID ONE OUT OF EVERY FOUR
  • 00:16:37.100 --> 00:16:38.220
  • MILLENNIALS IS AN ATHEIST.
  • 00:16:39.060 --> 00:16:42.060
  • AND THE CHURCH DOES NOT KNOW HOW
  • 00:16:42.060 --> 00:16:43.120
  • TO REACH CHRISTIANS WHO ARE
  • 00:16:43.120 --> 00:16:44.040
  • DISHEARTENED.
  • 00:16:44.040 --> 00:16:46.040
  • WE DON'T KNOW HOW TO REACH
  • 00:16:46.040 --> 00:16:46.240
  • CHRISTIANS WHO WALKED AWAY FROM
  • 00:16:46.240 --> 00:16:47.260
  • THE CHURCH.
  • 00:16:47.260 --> 00:16:49.130
  • HOW ARE WE GOING TO REACH A
  • 00:16:49.130 --> 00:16:50.110
  • GENERATION THAT IS ALREADY
  • 00:16:50.110 --> 00:16:51.290
  • ATHEIST BY THE TIME THEY ARE 13
  • 00:16:51.290 --> 00:16:52.230
  • YEARS OLD?
  • 00:16:52.230 --> 00:16:54.000
  • MOSAIC IS DOING THAT.
  • 00:16:54.000 --> 00:16:55.040
  • I FEEL LIKE MY ROLE IN THE WORLD
  • 00:16:55.270 --> 00:16:58.270
  • IS TO SEE THE WORLD FROM A NEW
  • 00:16:58.270 --> 00:17:01.230
  • PERSPECTIVE SO THAT PEOPLE CAN
  • 00:17:01.230 --> 00:17:02.140
  • SEE JESUS CLEARLY.
  • 00:17:02.140 --> 00:17:04.250
  • MY ROLE IN THE CHURCH IS TO TAKE
  • 00:17:04.250 --> 00:17:05.180
  • YOU THERE.
  • 00:17:05.180 --> 00:17:08.100
  • - YOU KNOW, WHEN WE LIVED UP IN
  • 00:17:08.160 --> 00:17:11.160
  • L.A. WE WENT TO MOSAIC.
  • 00:17:11.190 --> 00:17:14.190
  • I WILL NEVER FORGET SITTING
  • 00:17:14.190 --> 00:17:15.100
  • THERE.
  • 00:17:15.100 --> 00:17:17.180
  • I WAS MESMERIZED BY LISTENING TO
  • 00:17:17.180 --> 00:17:18.270
  • YOU TALK.
  • 00:17:18.270 --> 00:17:21.120
  • STILL AM TO THIS DAY.
  • 00:17:21.120 --> 00:17:22.240
  • I DON'T KNOW ANYONE LIKE YOU.
  • 00:17:24.290 --> 00:17:27.290
  • YOU ARE JUST-- I KNOW EVERYONE
  • 00:17:27.290 --> 00:17:30.080
  • IS SPECIAL, BUT IT IS LIKE GOD
  • 00:17:30.080 --> 00:17:31.260
  • JUST TOOK HIS TIME ON YOU.
  • 00:17:31.260 --> 00:17:34.240
  • AND, I REMEMBER HOW HARD IT WAS
  • 00:17:36.230 --> 00:17:39.230
  • TO EVEN GET YOU TO COME SIT ON
  • 00:17:39.230 --> 00:17:41.270
  • THIS SET WITH US BECAUSE YOU
  • 00:17:41.270 --> 00:17:42.180
  • WOULD SAY--
  • 00:17:42.180 --> 00:17:45.170
  • - I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH.
  • 00:17:45.170 --> 00:17:48.110
  • - BECAUSE WE MADE YOU.
  • 00:17:48.110 --> 00:17:49.140
  • (LAUGHTER).
  • 00:17:49.140 --> 00:17:51.180
  • BUT IT WAS-- IRWIN IS NOT
  • 00:17:51.180 --> 00:17:54.130
  • PREACHING TO THE CHRISTIANS
  • 00:17:54.130 --> 00:17:55.130
  • SITTING IN HIS CHURCH.
  • 00:17:55.130 --> 00:17:56.150
  • HE IS PREACHING TO THE GUY WHO
  • 00:17:56.150 --> 00:17:57.270
  • MIGHT HAVE WALKED IN OFF THE
  • 00:17:57.270 --> 00:17:59.130
  • STREET INTO THE CHURCH.
  • 00:17:59.130 --> 00:18:00.280
  • OR EVEN PASSED THE CHURCH.
  • 00:18:00.280 --> 00:18:02.170
  • I JUST ALWAYS-- NO ONE CAN
  • 00:18:04.080 --> 00:18:07.080
  • DELIVER THE MESSAGE I THINK OF
  • 00:18:07.080 --> 00:18:10.000
  • JESUS BATHING AND PURSUING
  • 00:18:10.190 --> 00:18:13.190
  • SOMEONE LIKE YOU CAN.
  • 00:18:13.190 --> 00:18:15.170
  • "THE LAST ARROW," I THINK SO
  • 00:18:15.170 --> 00:18:17.260
  • MANY PEOPLE GET SO COMPLACENT,
  • 00:18:17.260 --> 00:18:19.290
  • SO COMFORTABLE IN THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:18:20.040 --> 00:18:23.040
  • THEY GET PAID AT THEIR JOB,
  • 00:18:23.040 --> 00:18:24.280
  • EVERYTHING IS GOOD.
  • 00:18:24.280 --> 00:18:26.180
  • DON'T ROCK THE BOAT.
  • 00:18:26.180 --> 00:18:28.210
  • DON'T MAKE ME DO MORE, DO
  • 00:18:28.210 --> 00:18:30.260
  • SOMETHING THAT GETS ME OUT OF MY
  • 00:18:30.270 --> 00:18:33.270
  • COMFORT ZONE, BUT THIS BOOK
  • 00:18:33.270 --> 00:18:35.140
  • CHALLENGES THAT.
  • 00:18:35.190 --> 00:18:38.190
  • - WHAT REALLY INSPIRES ME ABOUT
  • 00:18:39.040 --> 00:18:42.040
  • "THE LAST ARROW," I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:18:42.040 --> 00:18:44.080
  • IF I'M ALLOWED TO SAY THAT.
  • 00:18:44.080 --> 00:18:46.070
  • - YES, YOU ARE.
  • 00:18:46.070 --> 00:18:47.080
  • - YOU CAN SAY WHATEVER YOU
  • 00:18:47.080 --> 00:18:48.000
  • WANT.
  • 00:18:48.000 --> 00:18:48.260
  • - WHEN I KNEW I HAD CANCER, I
  • 00:18:48.260 --> 00:18:49.250
  • WENT BACK AND READ THE BOOK.
  • 00:18:49.250 --> 00:18:51.130
  • I SAID, DO I NEED TO CHANGE WHAT
  • 00:18:51.130 --> 00:18:52.050
  • I WROTE?
  • 00:18:52.050 --> 00:18:54.060
  • TO ME WHAT AFFECTED ME SO
  • 00:18:54.060 --> 00:18:56.250
  • POWERFULLY, I WROTE IT WHEN I
  • 00:18:56.250 --> 00:18:57.240
  • THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO BE
  • 00:18:57.240 --> 00:18:58.130
  • HEALTHY.
  • 00:18:58.130 --> 00:18:59.160
  • AND I DIDN'T NEED TO CHANGE A
  • 00:18:59.160 --> 00:19:00.260
  • WORD WHEN I FOUND OUT I WAS
  • 00:19:00.260 --> 00:19:01.180
  • MAYBE GOING TO DIE.
  • 00:19:01.180 --> 00:19:03.270
  • I JUST ADDED AN INTRO AND AN
  • 00:19:03.270 --> 00:19:05.270
  • EPILOGUE CALLED THE BATTLE AND
  • 00:19:05.270 --> 00:19:07.190
  • BATTLE READY.
  • 00:19:08.000 --> 00:19:11.000
  • ONE OF THE REASONS I WROTE THIS
  • 00:19:11.000 --> 00:19:12.130
  • BOOK, WITH ALL MY FRIENDS WHO
  • 00:19:12.130 --> 00:19:13.150
  • DON'T BELIEVE IN GOD, ALL MY
  • 00:19:13.170 --> 00:19:16.170
  • FRIENDS WHO THINK THERE IS NO
  • 00:19:16.170 --> 00:19:17.080
  • GOD, WHAT THEY NEED MORE THAN
  • 00:19:17.080 --> 00:19:18.270
  • ANYTHING, THEY DON'T NEED US TO
  • 00:19:18.270 --> 00:19:20.290
  • BE SMARTER, THEY DON'T NEED US
  • 00:19:20.290 --> 00:19:23.010
  • TO HAVE ALL THE RIGHT ANSWERS.
  • 00:19:23.010 --> 00:19:24.040
  • WE DON'T HAVE TO BE CLEVER.
  • 00:19:24.040 --> 00:19:26.010
  • THEY JUST NEED TO SEE US BEING
  • 00:19:26.010 --> 00:19:27.080
  • FULLY ALIVE.
  • 00:19:27.080 --> 00:19:28.220
  • I'M SO CONVINCED WHEN YOU ARE
  • 00:19:28.220 --> 00:19:31.130
  • ALIVE, WHEN YOU WAKE UP IN THE
  • 00:19:31.130 --> 00:19:33.110
  • MORNING AND YOU LOVE LIFE AND
  • 00:19:33.110 --> 00:19:34.280
  • YOU SEE BEAUTY AND WONDER AND
  • 00:19:34.280 --> 00:19:36.070
  • YOU ARE AWARE OF INCREDIBLE
  • 00:19:36.280 --> 00:19:39.280
  • GOODNESS AND GRACE OF WHO GOD
  • 00:19:39.280 --> 00:19:42.210
  • IS, AND YOU ENJOY FOOD AND YOU
  • 00:19:42.210 --> 00:19:44.180
  • ENJOY PEOPLE AND YOU KNOW HOW TO
  • 00:19:44.180 --> 00:19:46.280
  • LAUGH AND LOVE, IT IS THE MOST
  • 00:19:46.280 --> 00:19:49.210
  • COMPELLING THING IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:19:49.210 --> 00:19:50.290
  • WHAT PEOPLE WITHOUT GOD
  • 00:19:50.290 --> 00:19:52.030
  • DESPERATELY NEED IS TO KNOW IF
  • 00:19:52.030 --> 00:19:53.110
  • ANYONE IS ALIVE.
  • 00:19:53.110 --> 00:19:55.050
  • WE ARE ALL JUST EXISTING.
  • 00:19:55.050 --> 00:19:55.250
  • WE FORGET THERE IS A HUGE
  • 00:19:55.250 --> 00:19:57.110
  • DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EXISTING AND
  • 00:19:57.110 --> 00:19:58.030
  • BEING ALIVE.
  • 00:19:58.030 --> 00:20:00.200
  • I WROTE THIS BOOK BECAUSE I'M ON
  • 00:20:00.290 --> 00:20:03.290
  • A DESPERATE MISSION TO AWAKEN
  • 00:20:03.290 --> 00:20:05.060
  • THE CHURCH THAT WE WOULD BE
  • 00:20:05.060 --> 00:20:06.020
  • FULLY ALIVE SO PEOPLE WITHOUT
  • 00:20:06.020 --> 00:20:07.130
  • GOD WOULD HAVE PROOF OF LIFE
  • 00:20:07.130 --> 00:20:09.160
  • AFTER DEATH BECAUSE THEY SEE
  • 00:20:09.160 --> 00:20:11.010
  • LIFE BEFORE DEATH.
  • 00:20:11.010 --> 00:20:13.000
  • - BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:20:13.000 --> 00:20:14.140
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:20:15.140 --> 00:20:18.140
  • TONIGHT WE ARE UNPACKING "THE
  • 00:20:18.140 --> 00:20:19.080
  • LAST ARROW."
  • 00:20:20.260 --> 00:20:23.260
  • WHEN LAURIE AND I GOT THIS BOOK,
  • 00:20:23.260 --> 00:20:26.210
  • WHEN WE UNDERSTOOD THIS BOOK IT
  • 00:20:27.190 --> 00:20:30.190
  • WAS REALLY A PROPHETIC KIND OF
  • 00:20:30.190 --> 00:20:32.190
  • CALL SIMILAR TO THE BARBARIAN
  • 00:20:32.190 --> 00:20:34.250
  • WAY.
  • 00:20:34.250 --> 00:20:36.230
  • YOU SPOKE TO A GENERATION WITH
  • 00:20:36.230 --> 00:20:39.140
  • YOUR FIRST BOOK THAT WAS SOONER
  • 00:20:39.140 --> 00:20:41.090
  • THAN THIS.
  • 00:20:41.140 --> 00:20:44.140
  • THIS ONE IS CHALLENGING US TO GO
  • 00:20:44.140 --> 00:20:46.010
  • FOR IT.
  • 00:20:46.010 --> 00:20:48.060
  • WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IRWIN IS THE
  • 00:20:49.030 --> 00:20:52.030
  • FACT THAT IF HE WOULD DO
  • 00:20:52.030 --> 00:20:54.060
  • ANYTHING TO GET YOU TO
  • 00:20:54.180 --> 00:20:57.180
  • UNDERSTAND THE LOVE OF JESUS AND
  • 00:20:57.180 --> 00:20:59.170
  • HOW MUCH HE LOVES YOU.
  • 00:20:59.260 --> 00:21:02.280
  • AND EVEN TO THE DESTROYING OF
  • 00:21:02.280 --> 00:21:05.170
  • YOUR REPUTATION.
  • 00:21:05.170 --> 00:21:08.000
  • THAT IS WHO YOU ARE.
  • 00:21:08.000 --> 00:21:10.040
  • I MEAN, I WAS SITTING HERE SEMI
  • 00:21:10.040 --> 00:21:12.060
  • JOKING ABOUT WE HAVE A CANDLE ON
  • 00:21:12.060 --> 00:21:13.240
  • SET.
  • 00:21:13.240 --> 00:21:16.080
  • IT IS A REAL CANDLE.
  • 00:21:16.080 --> 00:21:17.110
  • IT IS REALLY BURNING AND HAVING
  • 00:21:17.110 --> 00:21:19.130
  • FIRE NEAR IRWIN MCMANUS IS
  • 00:21:19.130 --> 00:21:21.230
  • DANGER BECAUSE HE WANTS TO LIGHT
  • 00:21:21.230 --> 00:21:23.060
  • EVERYTHING ON FIRE AND BECAUSE
  • 00:21:23.060 --> 00:21:25.140
  • THERE IS A PART OF YOU THAT
  • 00:21:25.180 --> 00:21:28.180
  • WANTS TO SCREAM, LOOK, WE DON'T
  • 00:21:28.180 --> 00:21:31.020
  • HAVE IT RIGHT YET.
  • 00:21:31.020 --> 00:21:32.250
  • WE GOT TO GET IT RIGHT.
  • 00:21:32.250 --> 00:21:34.140
  • I DON'T WANT YOU TO SIT HERE
  • 00:21:34.140 --> 00:21:36.010
  • TONIGHT AND GET CONFUSED WITH A
  • 00:21:36.090 --> 00:21:39.090
  • REGULAR GUEST ON A REGULAR
  • 00:21:39.090 --> 00:21:41.070
  • CHRISTIAN TV SHOW.
  • 00:21:41.070 --> 00:21:43.040
  • YOU ARE NOT REGULAR.
  • 00:21:43.040 --> 00:21:44.070
  • YOU ARE NOT NORMAL.
  • 00:21:44.270 --> 00:21:47.270
  • YOU ARE A GUY THAT WANTS TO
  • 00:21:49.120 --> 00:21:52.120
  • SCREAM BUT WITH HUMILITY SIT AND
  • 00:21:52.120 --> 00:21:54.000
  • TRY TO SHOW THE LOVE.
  • 00:21:54.000 --> 00:21:56.060
  • LET ME JUST TELL YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:21:56.060 --> 00:21:56.280
  • IT COMES OUT IN A WAY.
  • 00:21:56.280 --> 00:21:58.060
  • IF YOU WANT TO GET SOME FUEL IN
  • 00:21:59.110 --> 00:22:02.130
  • YOUR TANK, TO GO OUT THERE AND
  • 00:22:02.130 --> 00:22:04.220
  • GET SOMETHING DONE THAT HAS
  • 00:22:04.220 --> 00:22:06.240
  • NEVER BEEN DONE, GET THIS BOOK,
  • 00:22:06.240 --> 00:22:08.110
  • PICK UP THE PHONE, THE 800
  • 00:22:08.110 --> 00:22:10.020
  • NUMBER, WHAT ARE YOU WANTING
  • 00:22:10.020 --> 00:22:12.050
  • PEOPLE.
  • 00:22:12.050 --> 00:22:14.170
  • - HOW DO WE GET FULLY ALIVE?
  • 00:22:14.170 --> 00:22:16.210
  • PEOPLE THAT DON'T--
  • 00:22:16.210 --> 00:22:17.190
  • - HOW IS THIS GOING TO HELP
  • 00:22:17.190 --> 00:22:18.200
  • PEOPLE?
  • 00:22:18.200 --> 00:22:20.110
  • BECAUSE THIS IS THE THING.
  • 00:22:20.110 --> 00:22:21.000
  • YOU JUST WROTE IT.
  • 00:22:21.000 --> 00:22:22.110
  • YOU LIVED A CRAZY EXPERIENCE
  • 00:22:22.110 --> 00:22:25.100
  • AROUND IT.
  • 00:22:25.100 --> 00:22:26.180
  • HOW WILL THIS HELP PEOPLE?
  • 00:22:26.180 --> 00:22:28.060
  • - ONE OF THE THINGS THAT IS
  • 00:22:28.060 --> 00:22:30.270
  • IMPORTANT, TO SHIFT FROM LIVING
  • 00:22:30.270 --> 00:22:32.280
  • A LIFE OF OBLIGATION TO LIVING A
  • 00:22:32.280 --> 00:22:34.050
  • LIFE OF INTENTION.
  • 00:22:34.070 --> 00:22:37.070
  • IF YOU LOOK BACK ON YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:22:37.070 --> 00:22:39.000
  • HOW MUCH OF YOUR LIFE DO YOU
  • 00:22:39.000 --> 00:22:40.160
  • REGRET BECAUSE YOU LIVED OUT OF
  • 00:22:40.160 --> 00:22:41.120
  • OBLIGATION?
  • 00:22:41.120 --> 00:22:43.180
  • BECAUSE YOU FELT LIKE YOU WERE
  • 00:22:43.180 --> 00:22:44.210
  • LIMITED OR TRAPPED BECAUSE OF
  • 00:22:44.210 --> 00:22:46.270
  • THE EXPECTATIONS OF OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:22:46.270 --> 00:22:47.200
  • IN YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:22:47.200 --> 00:22:49.120
  • THE LIMITATIONS THEY BROUGHT ON
  • 00:22:49.120 --> 00:22:50.040
  • YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:22:50.040 --> 00:22:51.010
  • EVEN PEOPLE WHO LOVE YOU.
  • 00:22:51.010 --> 00:22:53.080
  • IF I CAN BE FRANK, I WATCHED YOU
  • 00:22:53.080 --> 00:22:56.080
  • FLOURISH AND EXPAND IN THE LAST
  • 00:22:56.270 --> 00:22:59.270
  • YEAR OR TWO IN A WAY THAT YOU
  • 00:23:01.180 --> 00:23:04.180
  • COULD HAVE OVER TWENTY YEARS.
  • 00:23:04.180 --> 00:23:07.120
  • BUT THIS RELEASING IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:23:07.120 --> 00:23:09.090
  • BECAUSE SOMETHING HAS BEEN
  • 00:23:09.090 --> 00:23:10.210
  • ENTRUSTED TO YOU, I THINK MOST
  • 00:23:11.000 --> 00:23:14.000
  • PEOPLE HAVE GIVEN UP ON IS
  • 00:23:14.000 --> 00:23:16.070
  • ACTUALLY HAVING VALUE.
  • 00:23:16.070 --> 00:23:18.020
  • YOU ARE LITERALLY CREATING VALUE
  • 00:23:18.120 --> 00:23:21.120
  • AND A FUTURE FOR AN ORGANIZATION
  • 00:23:21.120 --> 00:23:22.270
  • THAT WAS ON ITS WAY TO CLOSE ITS
  • 00:23:22.270 --> 00:23:24.150
  • DOORS.
  • 00:23:24.230 --> 00:23:27.230
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:23:30.120 --> 00:23:33.120
  • AND I THINK A HUGE PART OF THAT
  • 00:23:33.120 --> 00:23:34.170
  • IS BECAUSE YOU HAD TO LIVE OUT
  • 00:23:34.170 --> 00:23:36.210
  • OF OBLIGATION RATHER THAN
  • 00:23:36.210 --> 00:23:38.270
  • INTENTION.
  • 00:23:38.270 --> 00:23:41.230
  • I WANT TO GIVE PEOPLE PERMISSION
  • 00:23:41.230 --> 00:23:43.180
  • TO BREAK FREE FROM OBLIGATION
  • 00:23:43.180 --> 00:23:44.250
  • AND MOVE TOWARDS INTENTION.
  • 00:23:46.090 --> 00:23:49.090
  • I THINK MOST OF US HAVE AN
  • 00:23:49.090 --> 00:23:49.290
  • ENDLESS NUMBER OF VOICES INSIDE
  • 00:23:49.290 --> 00:23:51.130
  • US THAT TELL US WE ARE LESS AND
  • 00:23:51.130 --> 00:23:52.280
  • THEY CONVINCE US TO SETTLE FOR
  • 00:23:52.280 --> 00:23:53.190
  • LESS.
  • 00:23:53.190 --> 00:23:55.260
  • AND WE HAVEN'T HONED OUR SOULS
  • 00:23:56.110 --> 00:23:59.110
  • TO LISTEN CAREFULLY TO THE VOICE
  • 00:23:59.110 --> 00:24:00.290
  • OF GOD WHO IS ALWAYS CALLING US
  • 00:24:00.290 --> 00:24:02.170
  • TO MORE.
  • 00:24:02.170 --> 00:24:04.010
  • ONE OF THE OPENING STORIES IN
  • 00:24:04.010 --> 00:24:04.220
  • THE BOOK.
  • 00:24:04.220 --> 00:24:05.230
  • IT WAS REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE.
  • 00:24:05.230 --> 00:24:07.210
  • MY STEP-DAD I GET MY NAME
  • 00:24:07.210 --> 00:24:10.030
  • MCMANUS FROM, MY SON WAS 15, HE
  • 00:24:10.030 --> 00:24:11.220
  • SAID I WANT TO MEET THE MAN WHO
  • 00:24:11.220 --> 00:24:14.020
  • GAVE YOU YOUR NAME.
  • 00:24:14.020 --> 00:24:16.060
  • WE FLEW ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:24:16.060 --> 00:24:18.150
  • I HAD NOT SEEN HIM IN 15 YEARS.
  • 00:24:18.150 --> 00:24:19.250
  • WE SAT DOWN.
  • 00:24:19.250 --> 00:24:21.040
  • MY SON MET HIM.
  • 00:24:21.040 --> 00:24:22.260
  • WE BEGAN TO HAVE A CONVERSATION.
  • 00:24:22.260 --> 00:24:24.240
  • OUT OF THE BLUE HE LOOKED AT MY
  • 00:24:24.240 --> 00:24:26.040
  • SON AND SAID, HEY, I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:24:26.040 --> 00:24:27.130
  • WHAT YOUR DAD HAS TOLD ME, BUT
  • 00:24:27.130 --> 00:24:28.200
  • HE WAS JUST AVERAGE, AND WHEN I
  • 00:24:28.220 --> 00:24:31.220
  • HEARD HIM SAY THAT IT CUT ME.
  • 00:24:31.220 --> 00:24:33.160
  • I HAD MY 15-YEAR-OLD SON AND MY
  • 00:24:33.250 --> 00:24:36.250
  • DAD IS TELLING HIM I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:24:36.250 --> 00:24:38.230
  • WHAT HE TOLD YOU BUT HE WAS JUST
  • 00:24:38.230 --> 00:24:40.170
  • AVERAGE.
  • 00:24:40.170 --> 00:24:42.010
  • I JUST RESPONDED BY SAYING, WHAT
  • 00:24:42.010 --> 00:24:43.190
  • ELSE WOULD I TELL HIM, DAD,
  • 00:24:43.190 --> 00:24:44.260
  • EXCEPT THAT I WAS AVERAGE?
  • 00:24:44.260 --> 00:24:45.290
  • HE SAID YEAH, HIS BROTHER WAS
  • 00:24:45.290 --> 00:24:47.170
  • EXCEPTIONAL.
  • 00:24:47.170 --> 00:24:48.110
  • HIS BROTHER WAS GREAT AT SPORTS,
  • 00:24:48.110 --> 00:24:49.180
  • BUT YOUR DAD WAS JUST AVERAGE,
  • 00:24:49.180 --> 00:24:51.050
  • AND IT REALLY BROKE MY HEART.
  • 00:24:53.110 --> 00:24:56.110
  • LAST CONVERSATION WE EVER HAD.
  • 00:24:56.110 --> 00:24:59.010
  • THOSE ARE THE LAST WORDS I EVER
  • 00:24:59.010 --> 00:25:00.170
  • HEARD MY DAD SAY TO ME.
  • 00:25:00.170 --> 00:25:03.130
  • WHAT REALLY BEGAN TO GNAW AT MY
  • 00:25:03.130 --> 00:25:04.190
  • SOUL WAS, HE WAS RIGHT.
  • 00:25:04.190 --> 00:25:06.020
  • BUT MAYBE IT WAS A COMPLIMENT.
  • 00:25:06.020 --> 00:25:08.270
  • I WAS NOT AVERAGE, I WAS BELOW
  • 00:25:08.270 --> 00:25:11.020
  • AVERAGE, I FOUND SAFETY IN BEING
  • 00:25:11.020 --> 00:25:12.180
  • LESS.
  • 00:25:13.070 --> 00:25:16.070
  • I FOUND SAFETY IN HIDING IN THE
  • 00:25:16.070 --> 00:25:17.000
  • STATUS QUO, DRIFTING IN
  • 00:25:17.000 --> 00:25:18.060
  • MEDIOCRITY.
  • 00:25:19.070 --> 00:25:22.070
  • AND I LOOKED LIKE I WAS
  • 00:25:22.070 --> 00:25:23.250
  • INCAPABLE OF EXCELLING AT
  • 00:25:23.250 --> 00:25:24.240
  • ANYTHING.
  • 00:25:24.240 --> 00:25:26.220
  • I COULDN'T GET INTO COLLEGE.
  • 00:25:26.220 --> 00:25:27.220
  • I WAS WORKING AS A CARPENTER, A
  • 00:25:27.220 --> 00:25:30.060
  • LUMBERJACK, I WORKED
  • 00:25:30.060 --> 00:25:31.220
  • CONSTRUCTION, I FLIPPED BURGERS.
  • 00:25:31.220 --> 00:25:33.180
  • AND MY LIFE WAS GOING NO WHERE.
  • 00:25:33.180 --> 00:25:36.080
  • I HAD ACCEPTED AVERAGE AS MY
  • 00:25:36.080 --> 00:25:37.120
  • IDENTITY.
  • 00:25:37.120 --> 00:25:40.020
  • THIS IS WHY THIS BOOK FOR ME IS
  • 00:25:40.020 --> 00:25:41.240
  • SO SIGNIFICANT.
  • 00:25:41.240 --> 00:25:43.010
  • I'M NOT A PERSON PEOPLE SAW
  • 00:25:43.010 --> 00:25:43.230
  • TALENT IN.
  • 00:25:43.230 --> 00:25:45.140
  • I'M NOT A PERSON WHO HAD NATURAL
  • 00:25:45.140 --> 00:25:46.060
  • GIFTING.
  • 00:25:46.060 --> 00:25:48.050
  • I WAS A STRAIGHT D-STUDENT 1
  • 00:25:48.050 --> 00:25:49.170
  • THROUGH 12 GRADE.
  • 00:25:49.170 --> 00:25:51.040
  • I WAS NOT GOING TO COLLEGE, I
  • 00:25:51.040 --> 00:25:51.250
  • WAS FLOATING.
  • 00:25:51.250 --> 00:25:53.200
  • I SLEPT IN MY CAR IN THE WINTER
  • 00:25:53.200 --> 00:25:55.030
  • IN NORTH CAROLINA BECAUSE I DID
  • 00:25:55.030 --> 00:25:56.050
  • NOT HAVE ANYWHERE TO GO.
  • 00:25:56.050 --> 00:25:58.050
  • I WAS A WRECK.
  • 00:25:58.050 --> 00:26:00.270
  • AND I HAD NO FUTURE AND NO HOPE.
  • 00:26:00.270 --> 00:26:03.270
  • AND THE ONE THING THAT JESUS
  • 00:26:03.270 --> 00:26:06.210
  • GAVE ME THAT I'M SO GRATEFUL FOR
  • 00:26:06.210 --> 00:26:09.090
  • IS AN ENTIRELY NEW STORY FOR WHO
  • 00:26:09.090 --> 00:26:10.010
  • I AM.
  • 00:26:10.010 --> 00:26:12.060
  • I THINK THERE ARE A LOT OF
  • 00:26:12.060 --> 00:26:12.290
  • PEOPLE RIGHT NOW WHO ARE LIVING
  • 00:26:12.290 --> 00:26:15.070
  • IN SOMEONE ELSE'S STORY FOR
  • 00:26:15.070 --> 00:26:16.020
  • THEIR LIFE TELLING YOU YOU
  • 00:26:16.020 --> 00:26:17.160
  • CAN'T, YOU ARE NOT GIFTED, YOU
  • 00:26:17.160 --> 00:26:19.100
  • ARE NOT CAPABLE.
  • 00:26:19.100 --> 00:26:20.270
  • YOU ARE AVERAGE, YOU MADE TOO
  • 00:26:20.270 --> 00:26:21.240
  • MANY MISTAKES, YOUR PAST WILL BE
  • 00:26:21.240 --> 00:26:22.250
  • YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:26:22.250 --> 00:26:25.100
  • THAT IS WHY I HAVE A CHAPTER IN
  • 00:26:25.100 --> 00:26:26.160
  • HERE THAT SAYS SET YOUR PAST ON
  • 00:26:26.160 --> 00:26:27.280
  • FIRE.
  • 00:26:27.280 --> 00:26:29.160
  • I KNOW THAT IS HARSH LANGUAGE,
  • 00:26:29.160 --> 00:26:31.070
  • I'M-- IT PEOPLE GO, IRWIN, TALK
  • 00:26:31.070 --> 00:26:33.260
  • TO ME ABOUT BALANCE.
  • 00:26:33.260 --> 00:26:34.170
  • I GO, LOOK AT ME.
  • 00:26:34.170 --> 00:26:36.020
  • DO I LOOK LIKE I'M THE MODEL OF
  • 00:26:36.020 --> 00:26:37.170
  • BALANCE?
  • 00:26:37.170 --> 00:26:40.100
  • (LAUGHTER).
  • 00:26:40.100 --> 00:26:41.110
  • I JUST CAME BACK FROM
  • 00:26:41.110 --> 00:26:42.130
  • SCANDINAVIA SO I COULD GET IN
  • 00:26:42.130 --> 00:26:43.040
  • TOUCH WITH MY INNER VIKING.
  • 00:26:43.040 --> 00:26:45.000
  • AND I DID NOT SHAVE BECAUSE I
  • 00:26:45.000 --> 00:26:46.290
  • WAS TRYING TO CONNECT.
  • 00:26:46.290 --> 00:26:48.100
  • I'M VERY ORGANIC THAT WAY.
  • 00:26:48.100 --> 00:26:50.150
  • I'M WHAT YOU CALL A METHOD
  • 00:26:50.150 --> 00:26:52.090
  • WRITER AND ACTOR.
  • 00:26:52.090 --> 00:26:54.130
  • AND TO ME, I WANT TO GIVE PEOPLE
  • 00:26:58.120 --> 00:27:01.140
  • A WAY OUT OF THE LIFE THAT IS
  • 00:27:01.140 --> 00:27:02.050
  • EATING THEIR SOUL AWAY.
  • 00:27:02.050 --> 00:27:03.120
  • SO THE BOOK IS NOT JUST
  • 00:27:03.280 --> 00:27:06.280
  • INSPIRING, THERE IS A PROCESS IN
  • 00:27:07.160 --> 00:27:10.160
  • THE BOOK THAT IF YOU WILL TAKE
  • 00:27:10.160 --> 00:27:12.000
  • IT ON, YOU CAN BREAK FREE FROM
  • 00:27:12.000 --> 00:27:12.290
  • YOUR PAST AND CREATE A DIFFERENT
  • 00:27:12.290 --> 00:27:13.210
  • FUTURE.
  • 00:27:13.210 --> 00:27:14.240
  • - WOW!
  • 00:27:14.240 --> 00:27:16.020
  • BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:27:16.020 --> 00:27:16.260
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:27:16.260 --> 00:27:19.010
  • OKAY.
  • 00:27:20.230 --> 00:27:23.230
  • WE HAVE A LITTLE CLIP THAT YOU
  • 00:27:23.230 --> 00:27:26.130
  • BROUGHT TO US, TELLS A LITTLE
  • 00:27:26.130 --> 00:27:28.060
  • BIT OF A STORY, FURTHER OF STORY
  • 00:27:28.060 --> 00:27:30.250
  • A LITTLE MORE FROM IRWIN
  • 00:27:30.250 --> 00:27:31.260
  • MCMANUS, WATCH THIS.

  • MUSIC
  • 00:27:41.200 --> 00:27:44.200
  • WHEN I DISCOVERED I HAD CANCER,
  • 00:27:44.200 --> 00:27:46.060
  • AFTER THE SURGERY, I HAD TO FACE
  • 00:27:46.060 --> 00:27:47.230
  • A SIGNIFICANT MOMENT.
  • 00:27:47.230 --> 00:27:50.130
  • SIX HOURS OF SURGERY PUT ME IN
  • 00:27:50.130 --> 00:27:51.080
  • MY ROOM AROUND 9 P.M.
  • 00:27:51.080 --> 00:27:53.150
  • IT WAS AROUND MIDNIGHT.
  • 00:27:53.150 --> 00:27:54.160
  • I WOKE UP MY WIFE KIM, I CALLED
  • 00:27:54.160 --> 00:27:55.290
  • THE NURSE IN.
  • 00:27:55.290 --> 00:27:58.010
  • THEY THOUGHT I NEEDED HELP.
  • 00:27:58.010 --> 00:27:58.270
  • I SAID NO, I'M GOING TO GET OUT
  • 00:27:58.270 --> 00:27:59.190
  • OF THIS BED AND I'M GOING TO
  • 00:27:59.190 --> 00:28:00.110
  • TAKE A WALK.
  • 00:28:00.110 --> 00:28:03.090
  • AND MY WIFE KIM SAID, NO YOU ARE
  • 00:28:03.090 --> 00:28:04.020
  • NOT.
  • 00:28:04.020 --> 00:28:05.060
  • THE NURSE SAID, NO, YOU ARE NOT.
  • 00:28:05.060 --> 00:28:05.280
  • I SAID NO, I AM.
  • 00:28:05.280 --> 00:28:08.020
  • THEY SAID NO, YOU CANNOT GO
  • 00:28:08.020 --> 00:28:08.220
  • WALKING.
  • 00:28:08.220 --> 00:28:09.150
  • I SAID LOOK, CAN I DO ANYMORE
  • 00:28:09.150 --> 00:28:10.210
  • DAMAGE TO MYSELF?
  • 00:28:10.210 --> 00:28:12.250
  • THEY SAID NO.
  • 00:28:12.250 --> 00:28:14.030
  • I SAID I'M GETTING UP AND I'M
  • 00:28:14.030 --> 00:28:14.240
  • GOING WALKING.
  • 00:28:14.240 --> 00:28:15.260
  • I KNEW THE SOONER I WALKED, THE
  • 00:28:15.260 --> 00:28:17.050
  • SOONER I COULD WALK OUT OF THE
  • 00:28:17.050 --> 00:28:18.130
  • HOSPITAL.
  • 00:28:18.130 --> 00:28:20.000
  • THE NURSE LOOKED AT ME AND SAID,
  • 00:28:20.000 --> 00:28:21.090
  • WOULD YOU LIKE SOME PAIN KILLERS
  • 00:28:21.090 --> 00:28:23.040
  • BEFORE YOU STEP OUT OF THE BED?
  • 00:28:23.040 --> 00:28:24.140
  • I LOOKED AT HER AND I SAID NO.
  • 00:28:24.140 --> 00:28:26.250
  • I WANT TO KNOW HOW MUCH PAIN I'M
  • 00:28:26.250 --> 00:28:29.110
  • IN BECAUSE I KNOW THIS, IF I CAN
  • 00:28:29.110 --> 00:28:30.260
  • FACE THIS PAIN, I CAN FACE
  • 00:28:30.260 --> 00:28:33.060
  • WHATEVER PAIN IS AHEAD OF ME.
  • 00:28:33.060 --> 00:28:35.040
  • AND IT HURT.
  • 00:28:35.040 --> 00:28:38.030
  • I WISH I COULD TELL YOU THERE
  • 00:28:38.030 --> 00:28:39.270
  • WAS NO PAIN.
  • 00:28:39.270 --> 00:28:40.230
  • AND I SOMEHOW PSYCHOLOGICALLY OR
  • 00:28:40.230 --> 00:28:42.280
  • MENTALLY BLOCKED OUT ALL THE
  • 00:28:42.280 --> 00:28:43.180
  • PAIN.
  • 00:28:43.180 --> 00:28:44.090
  • NO, EVERY STEP WAS A STEP INTO
  • 00:28:44.090 --> 00:28:45.230
  • PAIN.
  • 00:28:45.230 --> 00:28:48.020
  • WHEN I STEPPED OUT OF THE ROOM
  • 00:28:48.020 --> 00:28:49.080
  • AND DOWN THE HALL AND WORKED MY
  • 00:28:49.080 --> 00:28:51.010
  • WAY BACK TO THAT BED, I KNEW
  • 00:28:51.030 --> 00:28:54.030
  • THAT I HAD THE STRENGTH TO FACE
  • 00:28:54.030 --> 00:28:55.200
  • THE PAIN IN FRONT OF ME.
  • 00:28:55.200 --> 00:28:57.060
  • FOR SO MANY OF US THE FUTURE GOD
  • 00:28:57.060 --> 00:28:59.160
  • HAS FOR US IS JUST ON THE OTHER
  • 00:28:59.160 --> 00:29:01.170
  • SIDE OF OUR PAIN.
  • 00:29:01.170 --> 00:29:04.090
  • JUST ON THE OTHER SIDE OF OUR
  • 00:29:04.090 --> 00:29:05.000
  • SUFFERING.
  • 00:29:05.000 --> 00:29:07.220
  • THE STRENGTH WE ARE LOOKING FOR
  • 00:29:07.220 --> 00:29:10.020
  • IS ONLY FOUND IN THAT SUFFERING.
  • 00:29:10.020 --> 00:29:12.010
  • THE FREEDOM YOU ARE LOOKING FOR
  • 00:29:12.010 --> 00:29:13.070
  • IS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF YOUR
  • 00:29:13.070 --> 00:29:14.160
  • FEAR.
  • 00:29:14.160 --> 00:29:16.000
  • THE QUESTION IS, WILL YOU GO
  • 00:29:16.000 --> 00:29:17.060
  • BEYOND THE POINT OF NO RETURN?
  • 00:29:17.130 --> 00:29:20.130
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:29:20.130 --> 00:29:22.290
  • - WOW!
  • 00:29:25.010 --> 00:29:28.010
  • UNPACK THAT WHOLE THEME FOR US.
  • 00:29:29.020 --> 00:29:32.020
  • HOW DO WE DO WHAT YOU JUST ASKED
  • 00:29:32.020 --> 00:29:34.000
  • US TO DO?
  • 00:29:34.270 --> 00:29:37.270
  • - I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT TO
  • 00:29:37.270 --> 00:29:39.060
  • KNOW THAT IF WE DO NOTHING WE
  • 00:29:39.060 --> 00:29:40.120
  • WILL BE AVERAGE, THAT IS WHY IT
  • 00:29:40.120 --> 00:29:41.200
  • IS CALLED THE AVERAGE, TO DO
  • 00:29:42.280 --> 00:29:45.280
  • ANYTHING WELL, TO FIND YOUR
  • 00:29:45.280 --> 00:29:48.240
  • INNER GREATNESS, TO FIND THAT
  • 00:29:48.280 --> 00:29:51.280
  • PART OF YOU THAT IS HEROIC, YOUR
  • 00:29:51.280 --> 00:29:54.140
  • GREATEST CONTRIBUTION OF THE
  • 00:29:54.140 --> 00:29:56.030
  • WORLD WILL TAKE YOU DOING
  • 00:29:56.030 --> 00:29:58.290
  • SOMETHING TO BREAK OUT OF THAT
  • 00:29:58.290 --> 00:30:00.020
  • MEDIUM, TO BREAK OUT OF THE
  • 00:30:00.020 --> 00:30:00.260
  • AVERAGE.
  • 00:30:00.260 --> 00:30:03.180
  • FOR ME, IT IS A MATTER OF
  • 00:30:03.180 --> 00:30:04.190
  • REALIZING THAT-- HAVE YOU EVER
  • 00:30:04.190 --> 00:30:06.100
  • BEEN IN A CONVERSATION WITH EACH
  • 00:30:06.100 --> 00:30:07.230
  • OTHER AND YOU ARE NOT LISTENING?
  • 00:30:07.230 --> 00:30:09.010
  • - NO.
  • 00:30:09.020 --> 00:30:12.020
  • - YEAH, YES.
  • 00:30:12.020 --> 00:30:14.020
  • - HAVE YOU EVER HAD THAT MOMENT
  • 00:30:14.020 --> 00:30:15.080
  • YOU KNOW YOU ARE NOT LISTENING
  • 00:30:15.080 --> 00:30:16.240
  • AND SHE DOES NOT KNOW YOU ARE
  • 00:30:16.240 --> 00:30:18.030
  • NOT LISTENING AND YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:30:18.030 --> 00:30:19.050
  • FIGURE OUT WHAT SHE IS TALKING
  • 00:30:19.050 --> 00:30:20.030
  • ABOUT BECAUSE YOU DON'T WANT TO
  • 00:30:20.030 --> 00:30:20.260
  • TELL HER YOU WEREN'T LISTENING?
  • 00:30:20.260 --> 00:30:22.000
  • - CAN WE TALK ABOUT THAT LATER?
  • 00:30:22.000 --> 00:30:23.110
  • - THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR THE
  • 00:30:23.110 --> 00:30:24.030
  • BOOK.
  • 00:30:24.030 --> 00:30:24.120
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:30:24.120 --> 00:30:26.020
  • - YES.
  • 00:30:26.020 --> 00:30:27.210
  • - WHAT HAPPENS, IN THAT MOMENT,
  • 00:30:27.210 --> 00:30:28.280
  • YOU ARE NOT PRESENT.
  • 00:30:29.100 --> 00:30:32.100
  • AND YOU'VE LOST A MOMENT OF
  • 00:30:32.100 --> 00:30:33.000
  • TIME.
  • 00:30:33.000 --> 00:30:35.030
  • THINK OF THIS FOR A MOMENT.
  • 00:30:35.030 --> 00:30:36.150
  • THIS IS THE PERSON YOU LOVE MORE
  • 00:30:36.150 --> 00:30:37.190
  • THAN ANY OTHER BEING ON THE
  • 00:30:37.190 --> 00:30:39.130
  • PLANET.
  • 00:30:39.130 --> 00:30:41.090
  • AND YOU ACTUALLY DISAPPEARED IN
  • 00:30:41.090 --> 00:30:43.190
  • A MOMENT AND JUST EXISTED AND
  • 00:30:43.190 --> 00:30:44.100
  • DID NOT LIVE.
  • 00:30:44.100 --> 00:30:45.240
  • - GOT IT.
  • 00:30:46.090 --> 00:30:49.090
  • - NOW, TRANSLATE THAT ACROSS
  • 00:30:49.090 --> 00:30:50.090
  • LIFE.
  • 00:30:50.090 --> 00:30:52.030
  • YOU GO TO WORK ON MONDAY, IT IS
  • 00:30:52.030 --> 00:30:53.130
  • A JOB YOU HATE.
  • 00:30:53.130 --> 00:30:55.040
  • YOU ARE PAYING THE BILLS, YOU
  • 00:30:55.040 --> 00:30:57.030
  • ACCEPTED YOUR STATUS QUO.
  • 00:30:57.050 --> 00:31:00.070
  • YOU MAY HAVE LOST 30 SECONDS IN
  • 00:31:00.070 --> 00:31:02.260
  • A CONVERSATION WITH THE LOVE OF
  • 00:31:02.260 --> 00:31:04.060
  • YOUR LIFE, BUT MOST PEOPLE ARE
  • 00:31:04.060 --> 00:31:04.290
  • LOSING YEARS.
  • 00:31:04.290 --> 00:31:07.030
  • BECAUSE THEY ARE SIMPLY EXISTING
  • 00:31:07.030 --> 00:31:08.100
  • AND THEY ARE NOT EVEN PRESENT IN
  • 00:31:08.100 --> 00:31:09.020
  • THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:31:09.200 --> 00:31:12.200
  • I THINK A HUGE PART OF WHAT I'M
  • 00:31:12.200 --> 00:31:14.150
  • TRYING TO DO IS PROVOKE PEOPLE
  • 00:31:14.150 --> 00:31:16.000
  • TO BE AWAKE, TO BE AWARE THAT
  • 00:31:16.000 --> 00:31:18.230
  • THEY ARE ALIVE IN THIS MOMENT
  • 00:31:18.290 --> 00:31:21.290
  • AND TO LIVE IT WELL.
  • 00:31:21.290 --> 00:31:24.230
  • I JUST DECIDED TO LIVE MY LIFE
  • 00:31:24.230 --> 00:31:27.210
  • WITH A WRECKLESS ABANDON, MY
  • 00:31:27.210 --> 00:31:29.190
  • WORD OF THE YEAR-- I HAVE A
  • 00:31:29.190 --> 00:31:31.120
  • FRIEND NAMED JOHN GORDON.
  • 00:31:31.120 --> 00:31:34.050
  • HE WAS A JEWISH BUDDHIST ENERGY
  • 00:31:34.050 --> 00:31:36.160
  • COACH WHO BROUGHT ME ON HIS
  • 00:31:36.160 --> 00:31:38.120
  • RADIO SHOW TO TALK ABOUT ENERGY
  • 00:31:38.120 --> 00:31:40.180
  • TEN YEARS AGO AND IN THE MIDDLE
  • 00:31:40.180 --> 00:31:41.220
  • OF IT HE SHOCKED ME AND HE SAID,
  • 00:31:41.220 --> 00:31:43.020
  • YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN, RIGHT?
  • 00:31:43.020 --> 00:31:44.050
  • I GO, YEAH, HE SAID YOU
  • 00:31:44.050 --> 00:31:44.230
  • CHRISTIANS THINK YOU ARE THE
  • 00:31:44.230 --> 00:31:46.160
  • ONLY ONES GOING TO HEAVEN AND
  • 00:31:46.160 --> 00:31:47.240
  • THE REST OF US ARE GOING TO
  • 00:31:47.240 --> 00:31:48.140
  • HELL, RIGHT?
  • 00:31:48.140 --> 00:31:49.200
  • I GO, I THOUGHT WE ARE TALKING
  • 00:31:49.200 --> 00:31:50.110
  • ABOUT ENERGY?
  • 00:31:50.110 --> 00:31:51.000
  • (LAUGHTER).
  • 00:31:51.000 --> 00:31:53.230
  • HE JUST TOTALLY THROWS ME UNDER
  • 00:31:53.230 --> 00:31:54.150
  • THE BUS.
  • 00:31:54.150 --> 00:31:56.260
  • I SAID JOHN, JESUS SAID HE DID
  • 00:31:56.260 --> 00:31:58.210
  • NOT COME TO CONDEMN THE WORLD.
  • 00:31:58.210 --> 00:32:00.270
  • BUT TO GIVE THE WORLD LIFE.
  • 00:32:00.270 --> 00:32:02.250
  • SO WHY WOULD YOU EVER TAKE ON
  • 00:32:02.250 --> 00:32:03.200
  • WHAT JESUS WOULD DO?
  • 00:32:03.200 --> 00:32:04.160
  • I'M NOT HERE TO CONDEMN YOU.
  • 00:32:04.160 --> 00:32:05.250
  • I'M JUST HERE TO BRING YOU LIFE.
  • 00:32:05.250 --> 00:32:07.250
  • AND WITHIN A COUPLE OF WEEKS
  • 00:32:07.250 --> 00:32:09.010
  • THAT JEWISH, BUDDHIST ENERGY
  • 00:32:09.010 --> 00:32:10.040
  • COACH GAVE HIS LIFE TO JESUS.
  • 00:32:10.040 --> 00:32:11.260
  • - WOW!
  • 00:32:11.260 --> 00:32:13.010
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:32:13.010 --> 00:32:14.150
  • - LOVE IT.
  • 00:32:15.150 --> 00:32:18.150
  • - WE HAVE BEEN BEST FRIENDS FOR
  • 00:32:18.150 --> 00:32:19.240
  • THE WHOLE TEN YEARS, NOW HE IS
  • 00:32:19.240 --> 00:32:21.030
  • ON THE BOARD OF OUR CHURCH.
  • 00:32:21.150 --> 00:32:24.150
  • HE HAS THIS WHOLE THING CALLED
  • 00:32:24.150 --> 00:32:25.110
  • ONE WORD.
  • 00:32:25.110 --> 00:32:26.270
  • HE SAID IRWIN, WHAT IS YOUR ONE
  • 00:32:26.270 --> 00:32:27.190
  • WORD?
  • 00:32:27.190 --> 00:32:28.270
  • SO I SAID MY WORD THIS YEAR IS
  • 00:32:28.270 --> 00:32:29.180
  • AUDACIOUS.
  • 00:32:29.180 --> 00:32:31.000
  • OR AUDACITY.
  • 00:32:31.000 --> 00:32:32.230
  • I THOUGHT, I'M NOT DEAD.
  • 00:32:32.230 --> 00:32:35.230
  • I'M ON EXTRA TIME.
  • 00:32:36.090 --> 00:32:39.090
  • SO, IF I WAS INSANE IN THE PAST,
  • 00:32:39.090 --> 00:32:41.070
  • YOU HAVE NOT SEEN ANYTHING YET.
  • 00:32:41.070 --> 00:32:43.090
  • IF I WAS NOT AFRAID IN THE PAST
  • 00:32:43.090 --> 00:32:44.100
  • IT WILL BE SO DIFFERENT.
  • 00:32:44.100 --> 00:32:45.160
  • I REMEMBER THE DAY I TOLD MOSAIC
  • 00:32:45.160 --> 00:32:47.180
  • I HAD CANCER.
  • 00:32:47.180 --> 00:32:49.120
  • IT WAS ON SUNDAY.
  • 00:32:49.120 --> 00:32:50.190
  • AND I HAD SURGERY ON TUESDAY.
  • 00:32:50.190 --> 00:32:52.180
  • I DID NOT WANT THEM TO KNOW
  • 00:32:52.180 --> 00:32:53.080
  • AHEAD OF TIME.
  • 00:32:53.080 --> 00:32:54.170
  • I DID NOT WANT TO DISTRACT THEM
  • 00:32:54.170 --> 00:32:56.090
  • OR TO CAUSE THEM UNNECESSARY
  • 00:32:56.090 --> 00:32:56.290
  • GRIEF.
  • 00:32:56.290 --> 00:32:58.170
  • SO ON SUNDAY I TOLD THEM.
  • 00:32:58.170 --> 00:32:59.090
  • I SAID, LOOK.
  • 00:32:59.090 --> 00:33:00.150
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO
  • 00:33:00.150 --> 00:33:01.060
  • HAPPEN ON TUESDAY.
  • 00:33:01.060 --> 00:33:03.000
  • CANCER MAY DECIDE HOW I DIE.
  • 00:33:03.000 --> 00:33:05.090
  • BUT IT CANNOT DECIDE HOW I LIVE.
  • 00:33:05.090 --> 00:33:06.290
  • I WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:33:06.290 --> 00:33:09.180
  • SOMETHING.
  • 00:33:09.180 --> 00:33:11.070
  • WE ARE ALL TERMINAL.
  • 00:33:11.070 --> 00:33:14.070
  • ALL A DOCTOR CAN DO IS MAYBE,
  • 00:33:14.070 --> 00:33:15.180
  • JUST MAYBE TELL YOU HOW YOU ARE
  • 00:33:15.180 --> 00:33:16.160
  • GOING TO DIE.
  • 00:33:16.160 --> 00:33:18.140
  • HE CANNOT TELL YOU THAT YOU ARE
  • 00:33:18.140 --> 00:33:19.190
  • GOING TO DIE.
  • 00:33:19.190 --> 00:33:20.150
  • YOU SHOULD ALREADY KNOW THAT.
  • 00:33:20.150 --> 00:33:21.290
  • SO YOU HAVE TO DECIDE TO LIVE.
  • 00:33:21.290 --> 00:33:24.170
  • I THINK A HUGE PART OF IT FOR ME
  • 00:33:24.170 --> 00:33:26.080
  • IS YOU HAVE TO DECIDE THAT EVERY
  • 00:33:26.080 --> 00:33:28.170
  • DAY HAS ETERNAL VALUE TO IT.
  • 00:33:28.170 --> 00:33:30.250
  • EVERY DAY HAS SOMETHING
  • 00:33:30.250 --> 00:33:32.130
  • BEAUTIFUL IN IT.
  • 00:33:32.130 --> 00:33:33.190
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:33:35.070 --> 00:33:38.070
  • SO THERE ARE FEWER THINGS I PASS
  • 00:33:38.070 --> 00:33:39.270
  • UP ON NOW, THIS COULD BE THE
  • 00:33:39.270 --> 00:33:41.210
  • LAST TIME.
  • 00:33:41.250 --> 00:33:44.250
  • AND I LOVE PLAYING BASKETBALL.
  • 00:33:44.250 --> 00:33:47.060
  • SO THE DAY BEFORE I HAD-- THE
  • 00:33:47.060 --> 00:33:49.250
  • FRIDAY BEFORE I HAD SURGERY,
  • 00:33:49.250 --> 00:33:51.270
  • CALLED MY BROTHER, JOE SMITH.
  • 00:33:51.270 --> 00:33:53.160
  • SAID, HEY, MAN, LET'S RENT A GYM
  • 00:33:53.160 --> 00:33:55.000
  • AND WE ALL WENT AND PLAYED
  • 00:33:55.000 --> 00:33:55.210
  • BASKETBALL.
  • 00:33:55.210 --> 00:33:56.260
  • I THINK IT WAS THE DAY BEFORE I
  • 00:33:56.260 --> 00:33:57.180
  • HAD SURGERY.
  • 00:33:57.180 --> 00:33:58.280
  • I SAID I WANT TO DO THINGS I
  • 00:33:58.280 --> 00:33:59.280
  • LOVE.
  • 00:33:59.280 --> 00:34:01.060
  • I WANT-- IF I'M GOING OUT I'M
  • 00:34:01.060 --> 00:34:02.030
  • GOING OUT REMEMBERING THE THINGS
  • 00:34:02.030 --> 00:34:02.260
  • I LOVE DOING.
  • 00:34:02.260 --> 00:34:05.060
  • AND, THEN I ASKED MY SURGEON,
  • 00:34:05.060 --> 00:34:06.170
  • WHAT IS THE WORLD'S RECORD?
  • 00:34:06.170 --> 00:34:08.170
  • THEY PUT SIX HOLES IN MY
  • 00:34:08.170 --> 00:34:09.140
  • STOMACH, SIX HOURS OF SURGERY.
  • 00:34:09.140 --> 00:34:11.000
  • THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO TAKE TWO
  • 00:34:11.000 --> 00:34:12.010
  • HOURS.
  • 00:34:12.010 --> 00:34:13.050
  • BUT THEY FOUND MORE CANCER, MORE
  • 00:34:13.050 --> 00:34:13.270
  • COMPLICATIONS.
  • 00:34:13.270 --> 00:34:16.040
  • AND I SAID WHAT IS THE WORLD'S
  • 00:34:16.040 --> 00:34:17.090
  • RECORD FOR BEING ABLE TO PLAY
  • 00:34:17.090 --> 00:34:18.120
  • BASKETBALL AFTER YOU HAVE
  • 00:34:18.120 --> 00:34:19.020
  • SURGERY?
  • 00:34:19.020 --> 00:34:20.030
  • HE GOES, WELL, THERE IS NOT A
  • 00:34:20.030 --> 00:34:21.090
  • WORLD'S RECORD.
  • 00:34:21.090 --> 00:34:22.220
  • I SAID GREAT.
  • 00:34:22.220 --> 00:34:23.230
  • THEN IT IS MY.
  • 00:34:23.230 --> 00:34:25.290
  • I GET A RECORD.
  • 00:34:25.290 --> 00:34:28.100
  • I HAD A CATHETER.
  • 00:34:28.100 --> 00:34:29.270
  • THAT IS THE ULTIMATE MALE
  • 00:34:29.270 --> 00:34:30.220
  • HUMILIATION.
  • 00:34:30.220 --> 00:34:33.030
  • THEY SAID I WOULD HAVE IT IN
  • 00:34:33.030 --> 00:34:33.230
  • THERE A MONTH.
  • 00:34:33.230 --> 00:34:35.150
  • I CALLED AFTER A WEEK AND SAID
  • 00:34:35.150 --> 00:34:36.100
  • LET'S TAKE THIS THING OUT.
  • 00:34:36.100 --> 00:34:37.060
  • TOOK IT OUT AFTER A WEEK.
  • 00:34:37.060 --> 00:34:37.250
  • AND THEY TOLD ME IT WOULD BE
  • 00:34:37.250 --> 00:34:38.210
  • MONTHS BEFORE YOU CAN RECOVER.
  • 00:34:38.210 --> 00:34:40.110
  • THREE WEEKS AFTER I HAD SURGERY
  • 00:34:40.110 --> 00:34:42.090
  • I DROPPED MY SPORTS BAG DOWN THE
  • 00:34:42.090 --> 00:34:44.030
  • STAIRS SO MY WIFE WOULD NOT SEE
  • 00:34:44.030 --> 00:34:46.210
  • IT, AND I'M NOT AFRAID OF HER.
  • 00:34:46.210 --> 00:34:47.230
  • (LAUGHTER).
  • 00:34:48.240 --> 00:34:51.240
  • BUT, I SAID HONEY, I'M GOING OUT
  • 00:34:51.240 --> 00:34:53.180
  • FOR A LITTLE WHILE.
  • 00:34:53.180 --> 00:34:54.040
  • SHE SAID WHAT?
  • 00:34:54.040 --> 00:34:55.050
  • YOU ARE NOT LEAVING THE HOUSE.
  • 00:34:55.050 --> 00:34:55.260
  • MY WIFE BOUGHT A REFRIGERATOR
  • 00:34:55.260 --> 00:34:56.220
  • AND PUT IT IN MY BEDROOM.
  • 00:34:56.220 --> 00:34:58.090
  • SHE BOUGHT ME ONE OF THOSE
  • 00:34:58.090 --> 00:34:59.080
  • ELECTRIC CHAIRS THAT LAYS DOWN.
  • 00:34:59.080 --> 00:35:00.230
  • LIKE I WILL BE THERE THE REST OF
  • 00:35:00.230 --> 00:35:01.150
  • MY LIFE.
  • 00:35:01.150 --> 00:35:04.010
  • SO SHE WAS NOT GOING TO LET ME
  • 00:35:04.010 --> 00:35:05.060
  • OUT OF THE HOUSE.
  • 00:35:05.060 --> 00:35:06.230
  • I DROP IT DOWN THE STAIRS.
  • 00:35:06.230 --> 00:35:07.260
  • I SAID I'M GOING TO HANG OUT
  • 00:35:07.260 --> 00:35:08.290
  • WITH THE GUYS.
  • 00:35:08.290 --> 00:35:10.130
  • WE CALLED, RENTED A GYM.
  • 00:35:10.130 --> 00:35:12.020
  • WE PLAYED BASKETBALL FOR TWO
  • 00:35:12.020 --> 00:35:13.170
  • HOURS 3 WEEKS AFTER I HAD
  • 00:35:13.170 --> 00:35:14.060
  • SURGERY.
  • 00:35:14.060 --> 00:35:15.130
  • I WAS BLEEDING BUT THE GLUE WAS
  • 00:35:15.130 --> 00:35:16.110
  • NOT HOLDING.
  • 00:35:16.110 --> 00:35:19.050
  • MY WIFE CALLED ME AFTERWARDS
  • 00:35:19.050 --> 00:35:20.270
  • SAYING, WHERE WERE YOU?
  • 00:35:20.270 --> 00:35:21.280
  • IT IS HARD TO SAY WHERE I AM
  • 00:35:21.280 --> 00:35:23.280
  • BECAUSE I'M DRIVING.
  • 00:35:23.280 --> 00:35:24.260
  • I CAN TELL YOU WHERE I HAVE
  • 00:35:24.260 --> 00:35:26.060
  • BEEN, WHERE I'M GOING, BUT WHEN
  • 00:35:26.060 --> 00:35:27.050
  • YOU ARE IN MOTION YOU CANNOT SAY
  • 00:35:27.050 --> 00:35:28.150
  • WHERE YOU ARE.
  • 00:35:28.150 --> 00:35:29.240
  • AND SHE GOES WHERE WERE YOU?
  • 00:35:29.240 --> 00:35:31.000
  • I SAID SOMEBODY TOLD YOU.
  • 00:35:31.000 --> 00:35:32.140
  • SHE SAID, I WON'T TELL YOU WHAT
  • 00:35:32.140 --> 00:35:33.210
  • SHE SAID.
  • 00:35:33.210 --> 00:35:34.090
  • SHE WAS UNHAPPY.
  • 00:35:34.090 --> 00:35:37.030
  • AND SHE SAID WHAT ARE YOU TRYING
  • 00:35:37.030 --> 00:35:37.250
  • TO PROVE?
  • 00:35:37.250 --> 00:35:39.100
  • I SAID I HAVE ALL THESE PEOPLE I
  • 00:35:39.100 --> 00:35:40.230
  • KNOW THAT DON'T BELIEVE IN
  • 00:35:40.230 --> 00:35:42.090
  • JESUS, THAT DON'T BELIEVE IN
  • 00:35:42.090 --> 00:35:43.260
  • GOD, I HAVE BEEN TELLING THEM
  • 00:35:43.260 --> 00:35:45.140
  • ALL THESE YEARS THAT JESUS MEETS
  • 00:35:45.140 --> 00:35:47.270
  • YOU IN ALL YOUR GREATEST FEAR
  • 00:35:47.270 --> 00:35:49.110

  • MOMENT LIFE IS DARKEST AND HOW I
  • 00:35:53.080 --> 00:35:55.010
  • LIVE THIS MOMENT IS GOING TO BE
  • 00:35:55.010 --> 00:35:56.110
  • THE STORY NOT JUST OF MY LIFE TO
  • 00:35:56.110 --> 00:35:57.250
  • THEM BUT THE STORY OF JESUS TO
  • 00:35:57.250 --> 00:35:59.040
  • THEM.
  • 00:35:59.040 --> 00:36:02.000
  • I'M GOING TO BE THE GUY WHO GETS
  • 00:36:02.000 --> 00:36:03.050
  • OUT OF THE BED 3 HOURS AFTER
  • 00:36:03.050 --> 00:36:04.120
  • SURGERY.
  • 00:36:04.120 --> 00:36:06.040
  • I'M GOING TO BE THE GUY THAT
  • 00:36:06.040 --> 00:36:07.070
  • PLAYS BASKETBALL 3 WEEKS AFTER
  • 00:36:07.070 --> 00:36:07.280
  • SURGERY.
  • 00:36:07.280 --> 00:36:09.030
  • I'M GOING TO BE THE GUY WHO
  • 00:36:09.030 --> 00:36:10.240
  • LIVES HIS LIFE FEARLESSLY, NOT
  • 00:36:10.240 --> 00:36:13.030
  • FOR ME, BUT FOR EVERYONE WHO IS
  • 00:36:13.030 --> 00:36:14.060
  • WATCHING MY LIFE TO SEE, IS GOD
  • 00:36:14.060 --> 00:36:15.130
  • REALLY REAL?
  • 00:36:15.130 --> 00:36:16.190
  • IT IS THE ONLY REASON I CAN
  • 00:36:16.210 --> 00:36:19.210
  • THINK I'M HERE IS TO BE PROOF OF
  • 00:36:19.210 --> 00:36:20.160
  • LIFE.
  • 00:36:20.160 --> 00:36:22.280
  • I HAD A CONVERSATION IN NEW YORK
  • 00:36:23.190 --> 00:36:26.190
  • WITH THIS BILLIONAIRE WHO IS NOT
  • 00:36:26.190 --> 00:36:27.230
  • 40 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:36:27.230 --> 00:36:29.080
  • HE SAID I'M JEWISH, I'M AN
  • 00:36:29.080 --> 00:36:30.140
  • ATHEIST, I HAVE BEEN STUDYING
  • 00:36:30.140 --> 00:36:31.050
  • BUDDHISM.
  • 00:36:31.050 --> 00:36:33.070
  • AND WE STARTED HAVING A
  • 00:36:33.070 --> 00:36:33.250
  • CONVERSATION.
  • 00:36:33.250 --> 00:36:35.130
  • THERE WAS SOMETHING I COULD HELP
  • 00:36:35.130 --> 00:36:36.060
  • HIM WITH.
  • 00:36:36.060 --> 00:36:37.280
  • HE THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:36:37.280 --> 00:36:38.200
  • TO PAY FOR IT.
  • 00:36:38.200 --> 00:36:39.150
  • I SAID I'M GOING TO GIVE IT TO
  • 00:36:39.150 --> 00:36:40.090
  • YOU FREE.
  • 00:36:40.090 --> 00:36:41.100
  • HE SAID WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?
  • 00:36:41.100 --> 00:36:43.080
  • I SAID BECAUSE I HAVE A
  • 00:36:43.080 --> 00:36:44.250
  • DIFFERENT VIEW OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:36:44.250 --> 00:36:46.160
  • WHEN YOU ARE GENEROUS, GOD HAS
  • 00:36:46.160 --> 00:36:48.080
  • AN INCREDIBLE WAY OF POURING IT
  • 00:36:48.080 --> 00:36:49.020
  • BACK INTO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:36:49.020 --> 00:36:51.030
  • AND HE IS NOT EVEN A FOLLOWER OF
  • 00:36:51.030 --> 00:36:51.250
  • CHRIST.
  • 00:36:51.250 --> 00:36:53.070
  • I WANT TO BE GENEROUS TO YOU
  • 00:36:53.070 --> 00:36:55.030
  • BECAUSE I KNOW YOU NEED MY HELP
  • 00:36:55.030 --> 00:36:57.260
  • FOR ONE REAR, HE SAID WHY IS
  • 00:36:57.260 --> 00:36:58.160
  • THAT?
  • 00:36:58.160 --> 00:37:00.060
  • GOD WANTED ME TO BE THE PHYSICAL
  • 00:37:00.060 --> 00:37:02.160
  • MANIFESTATION OF JESUS IN YOUR
  • 00:37:02.160 --> 00:37:04.110
  • LIFE SO THAT YOU COULD KNOW AT
  • 00:37:04.110 --> 00:37:05.240
  • LEAST ONCE GOD SEES YOU AND
  • 00:37:05.240 --> 00:37:08.030
  • LOVES YOU.
  • 00:37:08.030 --> 00:37:09.090
  • HE LOOKED AT ME AND HE GOES,
  • 00:37:09.090 --> 00:37:10.010
  • OKAY.
  • 00:37:10.010 --> 00:37:11.140
  • AND THEN HE LOOKED AT ME AND
  • 00:37:11.140 --> 00:37:12.200
  • SAID I'M SO FULL OF FEAR.
  • 00:37:12.200 --> 00:37:13.230
  • HOW ARE YOU ABLE TO LIVE SUCH A
  • 00:37:13.230 --> 00:37:16.120
  • FEARLESS LIFE?
  • 00:37:16.120 --> 00:37:17.060
  • I LOVE THAT HE ASKED ME THAT
  • 00:37:17.060 --> 00:37:19.120
  • QUESTION.
  • 00:37:19.120 --> 00:37:21.210
  • BECAUSE I'M A COWARD.
  • 00:37:21.210 --> 00:37:24.150
  • BECAUSE I HAVE FEAR ALL AROUND
  • 00:37:24.150 --> 00:37:25.070
  • ME.
  • 00:37:25.070 --> 00:37:27.000
  • I USE FEAR AS MY MARKER.
  • 00:37:27.000 --> 00:37:29.030
  • WHEN I'M AFRAID I LEAN INTO THE
  • 00:37:29.030 --> 00:37:30.110
  • FEAR AND GO IN THAT DIRECTION.
  • 00:37:30.110 --> 00:37:31.250
  • I THINK A LOT OF US RUN FROM OUR
  • 00:37:31.250 --> 00:37:33.160
  • FEARS.
  • 00:37:33.160 --> 00:37:34.240
  • BUT OUR FREEDOM IS JUST ON THE
  • 00:37:34.240 --> 00:37:36.160
  • OTHER SIDE OF OUR FEARS.
  • 00:37:36.160 --> 00:37:39.090
  • TO ME, FEAR IS THE WAY DARKNESS
  • 00:37:39.090 --> 00:37:42.010
  • STARTS TO STEAL FROM US OUR
  • 00:37:42.010 --> 00:37:43.030
  • LIGHT.
  • 00:37:43.060 --> 00:37:46.060
  • AND YOU LEAN INTO YOUR FEARS,
  • 00:37:46.060 --> 00:37:47.180
  • YOU WILL FIND LIFE, YOU WILL
  • 00:37:47.180 --> 00:37:48.280
  • FIND FREEDOM.
  • 00:37:48.280 --> 00:37:51.240
  • AND SO, I LOOKED AT THIS AND GO,
  • 00:37:51.240 --> 00:37:53.120
  • I KNOW THE LIFE I'M LIVING IS
  • 00:37:53.120 --> 00:37:55.070
  • NOT BEING LIVED BY AN
  • 00:37:55.070 --> 00:37:56.140
  • EXTRAORDINARY PERSON.
  • 00:37:56.140 --> 00:37:58.210
  • I'M THE PERSON THAT WAS JUST
  • 00:37:58.210 --> 00:37:59.160
  • AVERAGE.
  • 00:37:59.160 --> 00:38:01.130
  • SO, IF I CAN LIVE THIS LIFE,
  • 00:38:01.130 --> 00:38:02.160
  • ANYONE CAN LIVE THIS LIFE.
  • 00:38:02.160 --> 00:38:05.150
  • I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW THAT A
  • 00:38:05.150 --> 00:38:07.200
  • LIFE FULL OF MEANING AND JOY, AN
  • 00:38:09.060 --> 00:38:12.060
  • A LIFE FILLED WITH ABUNDANCE AND
  • 00:38:12.060 --> 00:38:14.140
  • LAUGHTER AND LOVE, A LIFE WITH
  • 00:38:14.140 --> 00:38:16.160
  • FRIENDSHIP AND FUTURE AND HOPE,
  • 00:38:16.160 --> 00:38:17.080
  • IT IS AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE, BUT
  • 00:38:17.080 --> 00:38:18.070
  • IT DOES NOT COME EASY.
  • 00:38:18.070 --> 00:38:19.290
  • IT COMES WHEN YOU CHOOSE TO LIVE
  • 00:38:20.010 --> 00:38:23.010
  • THAT LIFE.
  • 00:38:23.010 --> 00:38:24.240
  • A LOT OF US TRY TO ACT LIKE GOD
  • 00:38:24.240 --> 00:38:25.200
  • DROPS LIFE ON YOU.
  • 00:38:25.200 --> 00:38:27.110
  • HE DOESN'T.
  • 00:38:27.110 --> 00:38:30.010
  • GOD GIVES US A PATH TO BE FULLY
  • 00:38:30.010 --> 00:38:32.010
  • ALIVE THEN HE CALLS US TO IT.
  • 00:38:32.010 --> 00:38:34.050
  • I HAVE NEVER SEEN
  • 00:38:34.050 --> 00:38:36.000
  • GOD WIN A BATTLE FOR ANYONE WHEN
  • 00:38:36.000 --> 00:38:38.070
  • THEY WERE RUNNING FROM IT.
  • 00:38:38.070 --> 00:38:40.280
  • THE ONLY BATTLES GOD WINS FOR
  • 00:38:40.280 --> 00:38:42.210
  • YOU ARE THE ONES YOU ARE WILLING
  • 00:38:42.210 --> 00:38:43.160
  • TO STAND IN AND FIGHT.
  • 00:38:43.160 --> 00:38:45.230
  • - WOW! WOW! WOW!!
  • 00:38:45.230 --> 00:38:48.060

  • WOW! "THE LAST ARROW" IS YET

  • BUT TO A GENERATION.
  • 00:39:02.250 --> 00:39:05.250

  • COMPLETELY WEIRD EXPERIENCE IN

  • THE MIDDLE OF IT, IT IS JUST A

  • I CANNOT TELL YOU--
  • 00:39:28.050 --> 00:39:29.070
  • - NO MATTER WHAT GENERATION YOU
  • 00:39:29.070 --> 00:39:30.060
  • ARE IN, ACROSS THE BOARD.
  • 00:39:30.060 --> 00:39:31.250
  • - IF YOU ARE ALIVE, IT MEANS

  • IF YOU WOULD, PLEASE.

  • AND SINCE I'M THE HOST, IT WOULD
  • 00:39:45.180 --> 00:39:47.050
  • BE AWKWARD FOR YOU TO SAY NO.
  • 00:39:47.050 --> 00:39:49.150
  • - HE IS AT THAT POINT WHERE HE
  • 00:39:49.150 --> 00:39:51.030
  • WILL.
  • 00:39:51.030 --> 00:39:52.130

  • - ONE IS, I WANT YOU TO KNOW
  • 00:39:57.230 --> 00:40:00.230
  • THAT-- YOU KNOW I DO THIS EVERY

  • TIME, I WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO

  • LOOK INTO THE AUDIENCE AND MAYBE

  • HELP THEM UNDERSTAND WHAT A LIFE
  • 00:40:10.280 --> 00:40:12.160
  • IN JESUS WOULD BE AND HOW THEY
  • 00:40:12.160 --> 00:40:13.230
  • CAN GET THAT.
  • 00:40:13.230 --> 00:40:14.150
  • BEFORE WE DO THAT, I WANT YOU TO
  • 00:40:17.130 --> 00:40:20.130
  • SPEAK, IF YOU WOULD, EVERYTHING
  • 00:40:20.240 --> 00:40:23.240
  • YOU SAY IS ENCOURAGING.
  • 00:40:23.240 --> 00:40:26.030
  • EVERYTHING YOU SAY I FEEL HAS
  • 00:40:26.030 --> 00:40:27.040
  • WEIGHT.
  • 00:40:27.040 --> 00:40:29.060
  • EVERYTHING YOU SAY FEELS LIKE

  • MORE, AND YOU ALREADY EXPLAINED
  • 00:40:58.240 --> 00:41:01.260
  • THIS BUT THERE COULD BE SOMEBODY
  • 00:41:01.260 --> 00:41:03.120
  • IN THE AUDIENCE THAT JUST SAYS,
  • 00:41:03.120 --> 00:41:06.100
  • IRWIN, I'M SORRY, YOU KNOW, YOUR

  • EXPLANATION IS NOT ENOUGH.
  • 00:41:08.150 --> 00:41:10.130
  • YOU HAVE NO IDEA.
  • 00:41:10.130 --> 00:41:11.160
  • I'M NOT AVERAGE, I'M WAY BLOW
  • 00:41:11.270 --> 00:41:14.270
  • AVERAGE, I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT
  • 00:41:14.270 --> 00:41:16.280
  • IT FEELS LIKE TO HAVE-- LIFE HAS
  • 00:41:17.180 --> 00:41:20.180
  • BEATEN THE CRAP OUT OF ME.
  • 00:41:20.180 --> 00:41:23.040
  • LET'S PUT IT THAT WAY.
  • 00:41:23.040 --> 00:41:25.130
  • YOU DON'T GET IT.
  • 00:41:25.130 --> 00:41:26.070
  • I'VE BEEN IN PRISON, I'VE BEEN
  • 00:41:26.070 --> 00:41:27.160
  • IN PRISON YEARS OF MY LIFE.
  • 00:41:27.160 --> 00:41:29.010
  • THERE IS NOTHING FOR ME.
  • 00:41:29.010 --> 00:41:31.280
  • BUT THAT IS THE CANDIDATE JESUS
  • 00:41:31.280 --> 00:41:33.000
  • IS LOOKING FOR.
  • 00:41:33.000 --> 00:41:34.190
  • SPEAK TO THAT MINDSET.
  • 00:41:37.150 --> 00:41:40.150
  • - BY THE WAY, IF YOU ARE NOT
  • 00:41:40.150 --> 00:41:42.030
  • AVERAGE AND YOU ARE WAY BELOW
  • 00:41:42.030 --> 00:41:44.040
  • AVERAGE YOU ACHIEVED AN EXTREME
  • 00:41:44.040 --> 00:41:44.270
  • OF SOMETHING.
  • 00:41:45.160 --> 00:41:48.160
  • YOU HAVE ALREADY BROKEN THE
  • 00:41:48.160 --> 00:41:49.240
  • AVERAGE, NOW YOU NEED TO FLIP IT
  • 00:41:49.240 --> 00:41:50.240
  • ON ITS HEAD.
  • 00:41:50.240 --> 00:41:53.240
  • THAT IS WHY A LOT OF TIMES--
  • 00:41:53.240 --> 00:41:55.200
  • - OH, MY GOD.
  • 00:41:55.200 --> 00:41:57.000
  • - A LOT OF TIMES PEOPLE WHO ARE
  • 00:41:57.000 --> 00:41:57.240
  • REALLY BROKEN BECOME THE MOST
  • 00:41:57.240 --> 00:41:58.180
  • POWERFUL PEOPLE.
  • 00:41:58.180 --> 00:41:59.270
  • BECAUSE THEY HAVE ALREADY BROKEN
  • 00:41:59.270 --> 00:42:01.010
  • THE AVERAGE, THEY REFUSE TO BE
  • 00:42:01.010 --> 00:42:02.170
  • AVERAGE, THEY JUST WENT THE
  • 00:42:02.170 --> 00:42:03.070
  • WRONG DIRECTION.
  • 00:42:03.070 --> 00:42:05.030
  • I THINK A LOT OF TIMES WE MOVE
  • 00:42:05.030 --> 00:42:06.230
  • TOWARDS THINGS LIKE DRUG
  • 00:42:06.230 --> 00:42:07.270
  • ADDICTION AND ALCOHOLISM, THE
  • 00:42:07.270 --> 00:42:08.270
  • REASON WE MOVE TO CRIME, THE
  • 00:42:08.270 --> 00:42:10.040
  • REASON WE END UP IN PRISON, THE
  • 00:42:10.040 --> 00:42:11.180
  • REASON WE END UP DOING THINGS
  • 00:42:11.180 --> 00:42:13.090
  • THAT ARE DARK AND DESTRUCTIVE IS
  • 00:42:13.090 --> 00:42:15.290
  • THAT WE DID NOT WANT TO BE
  • 00:42:15.290 --> 00:42:16.280
  • AVERAGE BUT WE DID NOT KNOW HOW
  • 00:42:16.280 --> 00:42:17.200
  • TO BE GREAT.
  • 00:42:19.260 --> 00:42:22.260
  • AND THAT IS WHY WHEN I STARTED
  • 00:42:22.260 --> 00:42:24.060
  • READING THE SCRIPTURES IT WAS
  • 00:42:24.060 --> 00:42:25.010
  • CLEAR TO ME.
  • 00:42:25.010 --> 00:42:26.140
  • I TELL PEOPLE, THE ONLY REASON
  • 00:42:26.140 --> 00:42:27.220
  • YOU STEAL IS BECAUSE YOU DON'T
  • 00:42:27.220 --> 00:42:29.190
  • FEEL YOU CAN CREATE.
  • 00:42:29.190 --> 00:42:31.110
  • BECAUSE WHEN YOU CAN CREATE YOU
  • 00:42:31.110 --> 00:42:32.030
  • DON'T NEED TO STEAL.
  • 00:42:32.270 --> 00:42:35.270
  • AND I SPENT TEN YEARS WORKING
  • 00:42:35.270 --> 00:42:36.180
  • WITH URBAN POOR AND REALIZED THE
  • 00:42:36.180 --> 00:42:39.090
  • TRAGEDY HERE IS NOT THAT PEOPLE
  • 00:42:39.090 --> 00:42:41.240
  • ARE STEALING, IT IS THAT THEY
  • 00:42:41.240 --> 00:42:42.290
  • DON'T UNDERSTAND THEIR CREATIVE
  • 00:42:42.290 --> 00:42:43.220
  • POWER.
  • 00:42:43.220 --> 00:42:46.140
  • AND SO, I WOULD SAY, LIKE ONE OF
  • 00:42:46.140 --> 00:42:49.010
  • OUR FRIENDS, EMERSON NUARTNY.
  • 00:42:49.010 --> 00:42:51.070
  • HE WAS IN PRISON FIVE YEARS FOR
  • 00:42:51.070 --> 00:42:52.030
  • 7 PLUS KILOS OF COCAINE.
  • 00:42:53.260 --> 00:42:56.260
  • AND HE IS ONE OF OUR PASTORS NOW
  • 00:42:56.260 --> 00:42:59.040
  • AND IS PLANT MOSAIC MEXICO CITY.
  • 00:42:59.130 --> 00:43:02.150
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:43:06.170 --> 00:43:09.170
  • AND I LOOK AT EMERSON AND I GO,
  • 00:43:09.170 --> 00:43:11.250
  • HE IS A MASTERPIECE.
  • 00:43:11.250 --> 00:43:14.160
  • BECAUSE OF ALL THE BROKENNESS IN
  • 00:43:14.160 --> 00:43:16.210
  • HIS LIFE AND HOW GOD IS BRINGING
  • 00:43:16.210 --> 00:43:17.130
  • IT ALL TOGETHER.
  • 00:43:17.130 --> 00:43:19.030
  • IT IS A PROFOUND STORY.
  • 00:43:19.210 --> 00:43:22.210
  • MY KIDS HAVE HAD THEIR OWN
  • 00:43:22.210 --> 00:43:24.000
  • JOURNEY.
  • 00:43:25.010 --> 00:43:28.010
  • MY SON, HE WAS SHARING HIS STORY
  • 00:43:28.010 --> 00:43:29.240
  • IN SWEDEN AND DENMARK TALKING
  • 00:43:29.240 --> 00:43:32.180
  • ABOUT HIS OWN RUNNING FROM GOD,
  • 00:43:32.180 --> 00:43:34.050
  • HIS OWN PAIN AND BROKENNESS.
  • 00:43:34.080 --> 00:43:37.080
  • THERE WERE TIMES HE FELT LIKE
  • 00:43:37.080 --> 00:43:39.060
  • MAYBE HE HAD GONE TOO FAR, AND
  • 00:43:39.060 --> 00:43:40.210
  • WAS TOO BROKEN, I'M LIKE, NO,
  • 00:43:40.210 --> 00:43:42.060
  • THAT IS WHAT MAKES YOU
  • 00:43:42.060 --> 00:43:42.260
  • INTERESTING.
  • 00:43:42.260 --> 00:43:45.150
  • THE ONLY PEOPLE I FIND TO BE
  • 00:43:45.150 --> 00:43:46.170
  • UNINTERESTING ARE PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:43:46.170 --> 00:43:47.130
  • HAVE NO PAIN.
  • 00:43:47.130 --> 00:43:48.290
  • THAT MEANS YOU NEVER CARED ABOUT
  • 00:43:48.290 --> 00:43:49.220
  • ANYTHING.
  • 00:43:49.230 --> 00:43:52.230
  • AND THERE ARE PEOPLE TRAPPED IN
  • 00:43:52.230 --> 00:43:53.220
  • THEIR PAIN.
  • 00:43:53.220 --> 00:43:56.210
  • THAT IS ALL THEY CAN TALK ABOUT.
  • 00:43:56.210 --> 00:43:58.090
  • THE MOST INTERESTING PEOPLE IN
  • 00:43:58.090 --> 00:43:59.260
  • THE WORLD ARE THE ONES WHO HAVE
  • 00:43:59.260 --> 00:44:01.090
  • SUFFERED, WHO HAVE GONE THROUGH
  • 00:44:01.090 --> 00:44:02.050
  • PAIN.
  • 00:44:02.050 --> 00:44:03.200
  • WHO HAVE HAD FAILURE AND
  • 00:44:03.200 --> 00:44:05.100
  • DISAPPOINTMENT AND FOUND A WAY
  • 00:44:05.100 --> 00:44:07.020
  • TO RISE ABOVE IT.
  • 00:44:07.020 --> 00:44:09.240
  • THOSE ARE THE PEOPLE WHOSE
  • 00:44:09.240 --> 00:44:11.100
  • STORIES I LOVE TO HEAR.
  • 00:44:12.130 --> 00:44:15.130
  • SO, I WOULD SAY, LOOK, I THINK A
  • 00:44:15.130 --> 00:44:16.230
  • HUGE PART OF THE PROBLEM
  • 00:44:16.230 --> 00:44:18.290
  • SOMETIMES IN OUR CULTURE, WE
  • 00:44:18.290 --> 00:44:20.070
  • HAVE A MYTHOLOGY OF GREATNESS.
  • 00:44:20.070 --> 00:44:22.040
  • WE SEE PEOPLE DO THINGS SO
  • 00:44:22.040 --> 00:44:23.250
  • EASILY, SO WELL.
  • 00:44:23.250 --> 00:44:24.240
  • YOU SEE STEPH CURRY PLAY
  • 00:44:24.240 --> 00:44:25.250
  • BASKETBALL.
  • 00:44:25.250 --> 00:44:27.030
  • HE MAKES IT LOOK SO EASY.
  • 00:44:27.030 --> 00:44:28.070
  • WHY CAN'T EVERYONE HIT 3
  • 00:44:28.070 --> 00:44:29.060
  • POINTERS?
  • 00:44:29.060 --> 00:44:31.080
  • WE WATCH PEOPLE, YOU WATCH
  • 00:44:31.080 --> 00:44:32.230
  • OPRAH, AND SHE IS SO NATURAL ON
  • 00:44:32.230 --> 00:44:34.120
  • TELEVISION, COMMUNICATES SO
  • 00:44:34.120 --> 00:44:35.110
  • EASILY.
  • 00:44:35.110 --> 00:44:36.190
  • WE WATCH PEOPLE.
  • 00:44:36.190 --> 00:44:37.280
  • THEY MAKE IT LOOK SO EASY.
  • 00:44:37.280 --> 00:44:39.130
  • WE THINK GREATNESS IS EASY.
  • 00:44:39.130 --> 00:44:42.020
  • YOUR GREATNESS, EVEN IF YOU COME
  • 00:44:42.020 --> 00:44:43.210
  • TO THE PLACE YOU REALIZE GOD
  • 00:44:43.210 --> 00:44:45.090
  • PLACED GOD-GIVEN TALENT AND
  • 00:44:45.090 --> 00:44:46.190
  • POTENTIAL, GENIUS GREATNESS
  • 00:44:46.190 --> 00:44:48.170
  • INSIDE OF YOU, EVEN THAT
  • 00:44:48.170 --> 00:44:50.120
  • GREATNESS DOES NOT COME EASILY.
  • 00:44:50.120 --> 00:44:52.070
  • IT COMES THROUGH HARD WORK.
  • 00:44:52.070 --> 00:44:54.040
  • IT COMES THROUGH DILIGENCE,
  • 00:44:54.040 --> 00:44:55.240
  • THROUGH PERSEVERANCE, IT COMES
  • 00:44:55.240 --> 00:44:57.220
  • THROUGH HAVING RESILIENCE, I
  • 00:44:57.220 --> 00:44:59.190
  • THINK ONE OF THE PROBLEMS IS,
  • 00:44:59.190 --> 00:45:01.270
  • OUR FAITH LANGUAGE CONFUSED US.
  • 00:45:01.270 --> 00:45:03.090
  • JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE FAITH DOES
  • 00:45:03.090 --> 00:45:05.260
  • NOT MEAN YOU HAVE TO HAVE
  • 00:45:05.260 --> 00:45:06.190
  • FAITHFULNESS.
  • 00:45:06.190 --> 00:45:08.230
  • LIKE THE POWER OF THE WAY JESUS
  • 00:45:08.230 --> 00:45:10.180
  • WORKS IN OUR LIFE, YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:45:10.180 --> 00:45:12.290
  • PUT YOUR FAITH IN A GOD THAT IS
  • 00:45:12.290 --> 00:45:14.110
  • BIGGER THAN YOU.
  • 00:45:14.110 --> 00:45:16.040
  • YOU HAVE TO BE FAITHFUL TO WHAT
  • 00:45:16.040 --> 00:45:17.110
  • GOD PLACED INSIDE OF YOU.
  • 00:45:17.110 --> 00:45:19.060
  • AND THAT'S WHERE THE POWER COMES
  • 00:45:19.060 --> 00:45:20.240
  • WHEN WE DO THAT, WHEN WE WALK IN
  • 00:45:20.240 --> 00:45:21.250
  • THAT.
  • 00:45:21.250 --> 00:45:23.070
  • - OFFER PEOPLE JESUS IN THE WAY
  • 00:45:23.070 --> 00:45:25.040
  • ONLY YOU CAN DO.
  • 00:45:25.040 --> 00:45:27.240
  • - MATT KNOWS I'M ALWAYS AWKWARD
  • 00:45:27.240 --> 00:45:29.020
  • HERE.
  • 00:45:29.290 --> 00:45:32.290
  • AND WHEN HE FIRST ASKED ME TO DO
  • 00:45:32.290 --> 00:45:34.260
  • THIS, I DID NOT WANT TO DO IT.
  • 00:45:34.260 --> 00:45:37.020
  • I FELT UNCOMFORTABLE.
  • 00:45:37.060 --> 00:45:40.060
  • BUT WHAT ENDED UP HAPPENING, I
  • 00:45:40.070 --> 00:45:43.070
  • HAD A PH.D. SEND ME A NOTE
  • 00:45:43.070 --> 00:45:45.200
  • SAYING I'M AN ATHEIST.
  • 00:45:45.200 --> 00:45:47.250
  • I DON'T KNOW WHY I'M FLIPPING
  • 00:45:47.250 --> 00:45:48.220
  • CHANNELS.
  • 00:45:48.220 --> 00:45:50.040
  • I WAS WATCHING TBN.
  • 00:45:50.040 --> 00:45:52.100
  • I THINK IT WAS A REALLY PAINFUL
  • 00:45:52.100 --> 00:45:53.020
  • THING TO ADMIT.
  • 00:45:53.020 --> 00:45:55.240
  • THEY SAID I NEVER EVEN THOUGHT I
  • 00:45:55.240 --> 00:45:57.020
  • WOULD CONSIDER GOD BUT IN THE
  • 00:45:57.020 --> 00:45:58.140
  • FEW MINUTES YOU WERE TALKING, I
  • 00:45:58.140 --> 00:45:59.140
  • WAS LISTENING, AND SOMETHING
  • 00:45:59.140 --> 00:46:01.150
  • CONNECTED WITH ME.
  • 00:46:01.150 --> 00:46:03.260
  • I THINK PART OF THE REASON GOD
  • 00:46:03.260 --> 00:46:05.140
  • CREATES US DIFFERENTLY IS SO WE
  • 00:46:05.140 --> 00:46:07.000
  • CAN CONNECT WITH EACH OTHER.
  • 00:46:08.120 --> 00:46:11.120
  • AND I'M NOT A PERSON THAT HAS
  • 00:46:11.120 --> 00:46:12.140
  • BELIEVED EASILY.
  • 00:46:12.290 --> 00:46:15.290
  • IN FACT, I'M STILL IN SHOCK I'M
  • 00:46:15.290 --> 00:46:17.110
  • A PASTOR.
  • 00:46:17.110 --> 00:46:18.220
  • THERE ARE MOMENTS I GO, I CAN'T
  • 00:46:18.220 --> 00:46:20.050
  • BELIEVE I BELIEVE.
  • 00:46:20.100 --> 00:46:23.100
  • AND YET, WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO
  • 00:46:23.100 --> 00:46:25.130
  • ME, IS TO ME UNEXPLAINABLE.
  • 00:46:26.290 --> 00:46:29.290
  • FOR ME TO SAY I HAVE NOT HAD AN
  • 00:46:29.290 --> 00:46:31.220
  • ENCOUNTER WITH THE CREATOR OF
  • 00:46:31.220 --> 00:46:33.030
  • THE UNIVERSE, THAT I HAVE NOT
  • 00:46:33.030 --> 00:46:35.100
  • COME TO EXPERIENCE JESUS IN A
  • 00:46:35.100 --> 00:46:37.160
  • WAY THAT IS MORE REAL TO ME THAN
  • 00:46:37.160 --> 00:46:39.000
  • LIFE WOULD BE UNTRUE.
  • 00:46:39.120 --> 00:46:42.120
  • AND SO IF THE GOAL OF MOMENTS
  • 00:46:42.120 --> 00:46:44.030
  • LIKE THIS OR TELEVISION IS TO
  • 00:46:44.030 --> 00:46:46.240
  • STEP INTO OUR MOST AUTHENTIC
  • 00:46:46.240 --> 00:46:48.080
  • SELF, MY MOST AUTHENTIC SELF IS,
  • 00:46:50.180 --> 00:46:53.180
  • I DON'T KNOW HOW TO SEE LIFE
  • 00:46:53.180 --> 00:46:55.040
  • WITHOUT JESUS, I DON'T KNOW HOW
  • 00:46:55.040 --> 00:46:57.070
  • TO SEE REALITY WITHOUT GOD.
  • 00:46:57.270 --> 00:47:00.290
  • AND ONE OF MY FRIENDS WHO IS A
  • 00:47:00.290 --> 00:47:03.000
  • JOURNALIST ASKED ME, WHAT DOES
  • 00:47:03.000 --> 00:47:04.230
  • IT FEEL LIKE TO BELIEVE IN GOD?
  • 00:47:04.230 --> 00:47:06.250
  • I SAID, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU EVER
  • 00:47:06.250 --> 00:47:08.090
  • HAD A GREAT MEAL OR BEEN
  • 00:47:08.090 --> 00:47:10.250
  • OVERWHELMED BY SOMETHING
  • 00:47:10.250 --> 00:47:12.200
  • BEAUTIFUL OR HEARD A SONG THAT
  • 00:47:12.200 --> 00:47:14.100
  • MOVED YOU ALL THE WAY THROUGH,
  • 00:47:14.100 --> 00:47:16.110
  • BUT THE ONLY WAY I CAN DESCRIBE
  • 00:47:17.080 --> 00:47:20.080
  • COMING TO KNOW JESUS IS THAT ALL
  • 00:47:20.080 --> 00:47:21.220
  • THE COLORS BECOME MORE VIBRANT,
  • 00:47:21.220 --> 00:47:23.140
  • ALL THE SOUNDS BECOME MORE
  • 00:47:23.140 --> 00:47:24.150
  • BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:47:24.150 --> 00:47:25.160
  • ALL AROMAS BECOME MORE
  • 00:47:25.160 --> 00:47:26.040
  • OVERWHELMING.
  • 00:47:26.040 --> 00:47:28.160
  • YOU EXPERIENCE LIFE SO RICHLY
  • 00:47:28.160 --> 00:47:29.140
  • AND SO BEAUTIFULLY.
  • 00:47:29.140 --> 00:47:32.130
  • THAT IS WHEN I GET IT.
  • 00:47:32.130 --> 00:47:34.070
  • GOD STEPPED INTO HUMAN HISTORY
  • 00:47:34.070 --> 00:47:35.170
  • FOR US AND HE WALKED AMONG US
  • 00:47:35.170 --> 00:47:37.230
  • BECAUSE HE LOVES US.
  • 00:47:37.230 --> 00:47:40.050
  • THAT HE DIED ON A CROSS FOR US.
  • 00:47:40.050 --> 00:47:41.280
  • GOD UNDERSTANDS THE HUMAN
  • 00:47:41.280 --> 00:47:43.150
  • DILEMMA, THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE WAS
  • 00:47:43.210 --> 00:47:46.210
  • CREATED OUT OF GOD'S LOVE.
  • 00:47:46.210 --> 00:47:47.270
  • EVERYTHING THAT EXISTS, EXISTS
  • 00:47:47.270 --> 00:47:50.220
  • BECAUSE GOD IS LOVE.
  • 00:47:50.220 --> 00:47:53.000
  • AND OUR BROKENNESS, OUR
  • 00:47:53.000 --> 00:47:55.050
  • SEPARATION FROM GOD CAN ONLY BE
  • 00:47:55.050 --> 00:47:57.000
  • FIXED BY THE ULTIMATE EXPRESSION
  • 00:47:57.000 --> 00:47:59.060
  • OF LOVE, AND THAT IS SACRIFICE.
  • 00:47:59.060 --> 00:48:00.280
  • SO THE CROSS MAKES SENSE TO ME.
  • 00:48:00.280 --> 00:48:01.260
  • THE DEATH OF JESUS MAKES SENSE
  • 00:48:01.260 --> 00:48:02.250
  • TO ME BECAUSE GOD IS A GOD OF
  • 00:48:02.250 --> 00:48:03.210
  • LOVE.
  • 00:48:03.210 --> 00:48:04.280
  • HE DESIGNED US FOR LOVE.
  • 00:48:04.280 --> 00:48:06.060
  • HE CREATED US FOR LOVE.
  • 00:48:06.060 --> 00:48:07.200
  • HE PURSUES US WITH LOVE.
  • 00:48:07.200 --> 00:48:09.050
  • THE CROSS IS GOD'S EXCLAMATION
  • 00:48:10.290 --> 00:48:13.290
  • POINT THAT HE WILL NOT GIVE UP
  • 00:48:13.290 --> 00:48:14.200
  • ON YOU.
  • 00:48:14.200 --> 00:48:15.230
  • HE IS PURSUING YOU AND LOVING
  • 00:48:15.230 --> 00:48:16.290
  • YOU AND HE SEES YOU AND YOU
  • 00:48:16.290 --> 00:48:17.190
  • MATTER.
  • 00:48:17.190 --> 00:48:19.000
  • SO WHEREVER YOU ARE IN THIS
  • 00:48:19.000 --> 00:48:20.120
  • MOMENT, IF YOU JUST HAPPENED TO

  • STEP INTO THIS MOMENT WITH ME, I
  • 00:48:22.030 --> 00:48:24.060
  • WANT YOU TO KNOW THIS IS NOT
  • 00:48:24.060 --> 00:48:24.280
  • ACCIDENTAL.
  • 00:48:24.280 --> 00:48:26.230
  • THE TIMING IS NOT JUST CURIOUS.
  • 00:48:27.150 --> 00:48:30.150
  • GOD IS TRYING TO FIND A WAY TO
  • 00:48:30.150 --> 00:48:31.270
  • GET YOUR ATTENTION, TO LET YOU
  • 00:48:31.270 --> 00:48:33.070
  • KNOW THAT YOU MATTER.
  • 00:48:33.070 --> 00:48:34.220
  • HE KNOWS YOU BY NAME.
  • 00:48:34.220 --> 00:48:36.150
  • HE STEPPED INTO HUMAN HISTORY,
  • 00:48:36.150 --> 00:48:37.120
  • HIS NAME IS JESUS.
  • 00:48:38.010 --> 00:48:41.010
  • HE IS PURSUING YOU.
  • 00:48:41.010 --> 00:48:42.210
  • THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ALL THE
  • 00:48:42.210 --> 00:48:44.090
  • RELIGIONS IN THE WORLD AND JESUS
  • 00:48:44.090 --> 00:48:45.160
  • IS THIS.
  • 00:48:45.160 --> 00:48:47.000
  • EVERY RELIGION IN THE WORLD
  • 00:48:47.000 --> 00:48:48.080
  • GIVES US A WAY WHERE WE CAN TRY
  • 00:48:48.080 --> 00:48:49.150
  • TO GET TO GOD.
  • 00:48:49.150 --> 00:48:51.280
  • BUT THE STORY OF JESUS, THE
  • 00:48:51.280 --> 00:48:54.130
  • COMING OF JESUS IS GOD'S WAY OF
  • 00:48:54.130 --> 00:48:55.090
  • GETTING TO US.
  • 00:48:55.220 --> 00:48:58.220
  • AND SO I WANT YOU TO KNOW IT IS
  • 00:48:58.220 --> 00:48:59.250
  • NOT THAT HARD.
  • 00:48:59.250 --> 00:49:01.000
  • IT IS REALLY SIMPLE.
  • 00:49:01.000 --> 00:49:02.280
  • IN MY LIFE I ASK PEOPLE TO PRAY
  • 00:49:02.280 --> 00:49:04.100
  • A SIMPLE PRAYER.
  • 00:49:04.100 --> 00:49:05.080
  • IT IS ONE SENTENCE, JESUS, I
  • 00:49:05.080 --> 00:49:06.030
  • GIVE YOU MY LIFE.
  • 00:49:06.120 --> 00:49:09.120
  • THAT'S IT.
  • 00:49:09.120 --> 00:49:10.220
  • THERE IS A LOT YOU AND GOD HAVE
  • 00:49:10.220 --> 00:49:12.120
  • TO TALK ABOUT THAT WILL LAST
  • 00:49:12.120 --> 00:49:13.070
  • FOREVER, BUT THIS IS WHERE IT
  • 00:49:13.070 --> 00:49:16.040
  • STEPS, JESUS, I GIVE YOU MY
  • 00:49:16.040 --> 00:49:16.240
  • LIFE.
  • 00:49:16.240 --> 00:49:19.140
  • AND IT IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE, IT
  • 00:49:19.140 --> 00:49:20.170
  • IS LOVE.
  • 00:49:20.170 --> 00:49:22.150
  • AND LOVE IS BIGGER THAN
  • 00:49:22.150 --> 00:49:24.120
  • KNOWLEDGE, IT IS BIGGER THAN
  • 00:49:24.120 --> 00:49:25.080
  • INFORMATION, IT IS BIGGER THAN
  • 00:49:25.080 --> 00:49:26.030
  • DATA.
  • 00:49:26.030 --> 00:49:28.140
  • IF YOU KNOW THAT WHAT YOUR SOUL
  • 00:49:28.140 --> 00:49:29.190
  • NEEDS IS A LOVE THAT IS
  • 00:49:29.190 --> 00:49:31.180
  • UNCONDITIONAL AND EVERLASTING, I
  • 00:49:31.180 --> 00:49:33.140
  • WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT LOVE IS
  • 00:49:33.140 --> 00:49:35.070
  • WRAPPED UP IN A PERSON.
  • 00:49:35.070 --> 00:49:36.060
  • HIS NAME IS JESUS, IF YOU OPEN
  • 00:49:36.060 --> 00:49:37.260
  • UP YOUR LIFE TO HIM, HE WILL
  • 00:49:37.260 --> 00:49:38.270
  • GIVE HIS LIFE TO YOU.
  • 00:49:38.270 --> 00:49:40.130
  • SO MAYBE RIGHT NOW PRAY THAT
  • 00:49:40.130 --> 00:49:42.270
  • SIMPLE PRAYER, JESUS, I GIVE YOU

  • MY LIFE.
  • 00:49:43.290 --> 00:49:45.220
  • IF YOU WILL DO THAT,
  • 00:49:45.220 --> 00:49:47.000
  • EXTRAORDINARY THINGS WILL
  • 00:49:47.000 --> 00:49:47.190
  • HAPPEN.
  • 00:49:47.190 --> 00:49:49.270
  • WHERE YOU ARE, WHEREVER YOU ARE,

  • EVEN WHEN NO ONE ELSE KNOWS,
  • 00:49:51.040 --> 00:49:52.080
  • BECAUSE GOD IS REAL, HE WILL
  • 00:49:52.080 --> 00:49:53.140
  • HEAR YOU AND EVERYTHING WILL
  • 00:49:53.140 --> 00:49:55.010
  • CHANGE IN YOUR LIFE.

  • HE ONLY STRUCK IT 3 TIMES AND
  • 00:53:08.280 --> 00:53:09.220
  • STOPPED.
  • 00:53:09.220 --> 00:53:12.030
  • I WONDERED, WHY DIDN'T ELISHA
  • 00:53:12.030 --> 00:53:13.210
  • TELL HIM TO KEEP STRIKING?
  • 00:53:13.210 --> 00:53:14.140

  • COMMAND FROM GOD TO ACT BUT WE
  • 00:53:23.090 --> 00:53:25.080
  • NEVER WAIT FOR GOD TO TELL US TO
  • 00:53:25.080 --> 00:53:26.060

  • 00:53:26.060 --> 00:53:27.240
  • WE QUIT ON OUR OWN.
  • 00:53:28.180 --> 00:53:31.180
  • AND IT WAS A MINDSET.
  • 00:53:31.180 --> 00:53:34.170
  • THAT IS WHAT WE DON'T REALIZE.
  • 00:53:34.170 --> 00:53:36.060
  • ELISHA HAD A DIFFERENT MINDSET.
  • 00:53:36.060 --> 00:53:37.180
  • HE WAS GOING TO KEEP STRIKING
  • 00:53:37.180 --> 00:53:38.170

  • 00:53:38.170 --> 00:53:39.260

  • MATTER ENOUGH TO HIM TO KEEP
  • 00:53:44.220 --> 00:53:46.010
  • STRIKING AND STRIKING UNTIL THE
  • 00:53:46.010 --> 00:53:47.010
  • PROPHET TOLD HIM TO STOP.
  • 00:53:47.010 --> 00:53:48.260
  • I WONDER HOW MANY OF US GOD IS
  • 00:53:48.260 --> 00:53:50.140
  • TRYING TO DO SOMETHING HUGE IN
  • 00:53:50.140 --> 00:53:52.030

  • WANTS LESS FOR US THAN HE HAS.
  • 00:54:00.140 --> 00:54:03.140
