  • 00:04:38.174 --> 00:04:39.609
  • "the green day show last night," he said, "it wasn't
  • 00:04:39.676 --> 00:04:40.610
  • He said, "it wasn't a very great show,
  • 00:04:40.677 --> 00:04:41.644
  • A very great show, but there was one part."
  • 00:04:41.711 --> 00:04:43.112
  • But there was one part." he said, "there was a kid
  • 00:04:43.179 --> 00:04:44.614
  • He said, "there was a kid who got up on stage
  • 00:04:44.681 --> 00:04:46.949
  • Who got up on stage and ripped on guitar.
  • 00:04:47.016 --> 00:04:49.786
  • And ripped on guitar. he was the highlight
  • 00:04:49.852 --> 00:04:51.287
  • He was the highlight of the show.
  • 00:04:51.354 --> 00:04:52.488
  • Of the show. he stole the show."
  • 00:04:52.555 --> 00:04:53.456
  • He stole the show." his words, not mine.
  • 00:04:53.523 --> 00:04:55.725
  • His words, not mine. i'm very humble,
  • 00:04:55.792 --> 00:04:56.359
  • I'm very humble, i would not say it that way,
  • 00:04:56.426 --> 00:04:58.127
  • I would not say it that way, but that's the way he said it.
  • 00:04:58.194 --> 00:04:58.995
  • But that's the way he said it. that's the way
  • 00:04:59.062 --> 00:04:59.495
  • That's the way the critic said it.
  • 00:04:59.562 --> 00:05:01.597
  • The critic said it. and so i called in --
  • 00:05:01.664 --> 00:05:02.999
  • And so i called in -- i called the radio station.
  • 00:05:03.066 --> 00:05:04.300
  • I called the radio station. i was like,
  • 00:05:04.367 --> 00:05:04.967
  • I was like, "you gotta put me through.
  • 00:05:05.034 --> 00:05:05.668
  • "you gotta put me through. that's me he's talking about.
  • 00:05:05.735 --> 00:05:06.869
  • That's me he's talking about. i'm about to go to school
  • 00:05:06.936 --> 00:05:07.637
  • I'm about to go to school right now.
  • 00:05:07.704 --> 00:05:07.937
  • Right now. i gotta leave
  • 00:05:08.004 --> 00:05:08.371
  • I gotta leave in like five minutes.
  • 00:05:08.438 --> 00:05:09.072
  • In like five minutes. my mom's waiting for me.
  • 00:05:09.138 --> 00:05:10.106
  • My mom's waiting for me. but that was me he was
  • 00:05:10.173 --> 00:05:10.940
  • But that was me he was talking about on stage
  • 00:05:11.007 --> 00:05:11.908
  • Talking about on stage to play guitar.
  • 00:05:11.974 --> 00:05:13.042
  • To play guitar. put me through to the critic."
  • 00:05:13.109 --> 00:05:13.843
  • Put me through to the critic." and they put me through
  • 00:05:13.910 --> 00:05:14.510
  • And they put me through to the critic.
  • 00:05:14.577 --> 00:05:14.911
  • To the critic. and i said, "hey, that was me
  • 00:05:14.977 --> 00:05:15.878
  • And i said, "hey, that was me you're talking about."
  • 00:05:15.945 --> 00:05:16.546
  • You're talking about." he said, "well, hey, kid,
  • 00:05:16.612 --> 00:05:17.914
  • He said, "well, hey, kid, bring your demo tape by."
  • 00:05:17.980 --> 00:05:18.848
  • Bring your demo tape by." 'cause i told him i had a band.
  • 00:05:18.915 --> 00:05:19.816
  • 'cause i told him i had a band. and he was like,
  • 00:05:19.882 --> 00:05:20.350
  • And he was like, "bring your demo tape by
  • 00:05:20.416 --> 00:05:21.284
  • "bring your demo tape by and we'll play it on the air."
  • 00:05:21.351 --> 00:05:22.185
  • And we'll play it on the air." we didn't have a demo tape,
  • 00:05:22.251 --> 00:05:22.985
  • We didn't have a demo tape, but that's all right because
  • 00:05:23.052 --> 00:05:24.220
  • But that's all right because we eventually saved $300,
  • 00:05:24.287 --> 00:05:26.322
  • We eventually saved $300, made a demo tape.
  • 00:05:26.389 --> 00:05:27.090
  • Made a demo tape. i took it to the critic,
  • 00:05:27.156 --> 00:05:27.857
  • I took it to the critic, he played it on the air.
  • 00:05:27.924 --> 00:05:28.658
  • He played it on the air. and when i was leaving --
  • 00:05:28.725 --> 00:05:29.492
  • And when i was leaving -- this is several months later
  • 00:05:29.559 --> 00:05:30.560
  • This is several months later -- he said, "by the way,
  • 00:05:30.626 --> 00:05:32.729
  • -- he said, "by the way, i am putting together a band.
  • 00:05:32.795 --> 00:05:34.697
  • I am putting together a band. it'd be kinda cool to have
  • 00:05:34.764 --> 00:05:35.565
  • It'd be kinda cool to have a 15-year-old kid
  • 00:05:35.631 --> 00:05:36.566
  • A 15-year-old kid in the band.
  • 00:05:36.632 --> 00:05:37.333
  • In the band. so if you wanna audition for it,
  • 00:05:37.400 --> 00:05:38.534
  • So if you wanna audition for it, learn these songs
  • 00:05:38.601 --> 00:05:39.936
  • Learn these songs and you can audition
  • 00:05:40.002 --> 00:05:40.536
  • And you can audition for my band."
  • 00:05:40.603 --> 00:05:41.504
  • For my band." well, i thought that'd be
  • 00:05:41.571 --> 00:05:42.138
  • Well, i thought that'd be amazing 'cause we'd be
  • 00:05:42.205 --> 00:05:42.872
  • Amazing 'cause we'd be playing at the music farm
  • 00:05:42.939 --> 00:05:44.507
  • Playing at the music farm and we'd be playing
  • 00:05:44.574 --> 00:05:45.074
  • And we'd be playing all around charleston,
  • 00:05:45.141 --> 00:05:45.975
  • All around charleston, south carolina and that'd
  • 00:05:46.042 --> 00:05:47.310
  • South carolina and that'd be a pretty cool gig
  • 00:05:47.377 --> 00:05:48.211
  • Be a pretty cool gig for a 15 year old.
  • 00:05:48.277 --> 00:05:49.212
  • For a 15 year old. so i locked myself
  • 00:05:49.278 --> 00:05:49.779
  • So i locked myself in the room,
  • 00:05:49.846 --> 00:05:50.613
  • In the room, i start learning
  • 00:05:50.680 --> 00:05:51.214
  • I start learning all the songs on the tape.
  • 00:05:51.280 --> 00:05:53.616
  • All the songs on the tape. a tape.
  • 00:05:53.683 --> 00:05:54.283
  • A tape. a tape is...
  • 00:05:54.350 --> 00:05:55.618
  • A tape is... [laughter]
  • 00:05:55.685 --> 00:05:58.755
  • [laughter] and my mom walks in one night
  • 00:05:58.821 --> 00:05:59.655
  • And my mom walks in one night and this is all i'm gonna say
  • 00:05:59.722 --> 00:06:00.590
  • And this is all i'm gonna say about this 'cause i promise
  • 00:06:00.656 --> 00:06:01.424
  • About this 'cause i promise i know you didn't come
  • 00:06:01.491 --> 00:06:02.058
  • I know you didn't come to hear me talk about
  • 00:06:02.125 --> 00:06:02.859
  • To hear me talk about my nostalgic 15-year-old
  • 00:06:02.925 --> 00:06:03.960
  • My nostalgic 15-year-old memories,
  • 00:06:04.026 --> 00:06:04.660
  • Memories, but talking about a dream.
  • 00:06:04.727 --> 00:06:06.195
  • But talking about a dream. my mom walks in,
  • 00:06:06.262 --> 00:06:07.130
  • My mom walks in, picks up the tape,
  • 00:06:07.196 --> 00:06:08.264
  • Picks up the tape, and all of the songs
  • 00:06:08.331 --> 00:06:09.465
  • And all of the songs on the tape had cuss words
  • 00:06:09.532 --> 00:06:10.867
  • On the tape had cuss words in the title.
  • 00:06:10.933 --> 00:06:12.268
  • In the title. and then even the name
  • 00:06:12.335 --> 00:06:13.669
  • And then even the name of the band had a cuss word
  • 00:06:13.736 --> 00:06:14.837
  • Of the band had a cuss word in the name of the band.
  • 00:06:14.904 --> 00:06:15.705
  • In the name of the band. and buck's laughing
  • 00:06:15.772 --> 00:06:16.205
  • And buck's laughing 'cause the name of the band
  • 00:06:16.272 --> 00:06:17.707
  • 'cause the name of the band is so inappropriate,
  • 00:06:17.774 --> 00:06:18.508
  • Is so inappropriate, i can't say it in church.
  • 00:06:18.574 --> 00:06:19.876
  • I can't say it in church. i can't even allude to it
  • 00:06:19.942 --> 00:06:21.043
  • I can't even allude to it in church.
  • 00:06:21.110 --> 00:06:21.944
  • In church. but that was the band
  • 00:06:22.011 --> 00:06:22.545
  • But that was the band i was auditioning for.
  • 00:06:22.612 --> 00:06:23.946
  • I was auditioning for. and my mom who was
  • 00:06:24.013 --> 00:06:24.981
  • And my mom who was a methodist minister's daughter
  • 00:06:25.047 --> 00:06:26.482
  • A methodist minister's daughter had old-fashioned
  • 00:06:26.549 --> 00:06:26.983
  • Had old-fashioned moncks corner values
  • 00:06:27.049 --> 00:06:28.184
  • Moncks corner values and she's like,
  • 00:06:28.251 --> 00:06:28.785
  • And she's like, "what is this?"
  • 00:06:28.851 --> 00:06:29.485
  • "what is this?" i'm like,
  • 00:06:29.552 --> 00:06:29.952
  • I'm like, "this is the band
  • 00:06:30.019 --> 00:06:30.453
  • "this is the band i'm auditioning before."
  • 00:06:30.520 --> 00:06:31.254
  • I'm auditioning before." and she said,
  • 00:06:31.320 --> 00:06:31.721
  • And she said, "if you think i'm gonna
  • 00:06:31.788 --> 00:06:32.789
  • "if you think i'm gonna let you go audition
  • 00:06:32.855 --> 00:06:34.123
  • Let you go audition for this band,
  • 00:06:34.190 --> 00:06:35.224
  • For this band, you've lost your mind.
  • 00:06:35.291 --> 00:06:36.492
  • You've lost your mind. if you think i'm gonna let you
  • 00:06:36.559 --> 00:06:37.527
  • If you think i'm gonna let you audition for a band
  • 00:06:37.593 --> 00:06:38.394
  • Audition for a band called the [indiscernible]
  • 00:06:38.461 --> 00:06:40.797
  • Called the [indiscernible] then you've lost your mind."
  • 00:06:40.863 --> 00:06:41.998
  • Then you've lost your mind." to which i said,
  • 00:06:42.064 --> 00:06:44.233
  • To which i said, "then i'll run away from home.
  • 00:06:44.300 --> 00:06:48.304
  • "then i'll run away from home. you will not stand
  • 00:06:48.371 --> 00:06:49.605
  • You will not stand in the way of my dream."
  • 00:06:49.672 --> 00:06:51.574
  • In the way of my dream." right?
  • 00:06:51.641 --> 00:06:53.242
  • Right? because a dream
  • 00:06:53.309 --> 00:06:54.811
  • Because a dream will make you bold.
  • 00:06:54.877 --> 00:06:58.114
  • Will make you bold. and we never got to find out
  • 00:06:58.181 --> 00:07:00.450
  • And we never got to find out whether or not i would've
  • 00:07:00.516 --> 00:07:01.284
  • Whether or not i would've had the courage to
  • 00:07:01.350 --> 00:07:03.119
  • Had the courage to pack it all up and head out
  • 00:07:03.186 --> 00:07:05.221
  • Pack it all up and head out on the mean streets
  • 00:07:05.288 --> 00:07:05.855
  • On the mean streets of moncks corner on my own
  • 00:07:05.922 --> 00:07:08.591
  • Of moncks corner on my own to chase my dream
  • 00:07:08.658 --> 00:07:09.225
  • To chase my dream because i auditioned
  • 00:07:09.292 --> 00:07:10.026
  • Because i auditioned for the band
  • 00:07:10.092 --> 00:07:10.726
  • For the band and i didn't make it.
  • 00:07:10.793 --> 00:07:11.761
  • And i didn't make it. but the point of the story
  • 00:07:11.828 --> 00:07:12.795
  • But the point of the story that i'm trying to tell you
  • 00:07:12.862 --> 00:07:14.564
  • That i'm trying to tell you is this: that a lot of times
  • 00:07:14.630 --> 00:07:18.067
  • Is this: that a lot of times the dream we start out with,
  • 00:07:18.134 --> 00:07:21.270
  • The dream we start out with, the dream that we think
  • 00:07:21.337 --> 00:07:22.672
  • The dream that we think we see in one stage
  • 00:07:22.738 --> 00:07:25.074
  • We see in one stage of our life will show up later
  • 00:07:25.141 --> 00:07:28.277
  • Of our life will show up later in our life in a different
  • 00:07:28.344 --> 00:07:30.112
  • In our life in a different dimension and it will be
  • 00:07:30.179 --> 00:07:32.114
  • Dimension and it will be such a different dimension
  • 00:07:32.181 --> 00:07:34.784
  • Such a different dimension that we will not even recognize
  • 00:07:34.851 --> 00:07:36.519
  • That we will not even recognize the dream as the original dream.
  • 00:07:36.586 --> 00:07:40.490
  • The dream as the original dream. the bible says that
  • 00:07:40.556 --> 00:07:41.357
  • The bible says that when joseph was 17 years old,
  • 00:07:41.424 --> 00:07:44.494
  • When joseph was 17 years old, he had a dream,
  • 00:07:44.560 --> 00:07:46.496
  • He had a dream, and his brothers hated him
  • 00:07:46.562 --> 00:07:48.798
  • And his brothers hated him all the more for it.
  • 00:07:48.865 --> 00:07:51.534
  • All the more for it. that phrase "all the more"
  • 00:07:51.601 --> 00:07:53.402
  • That phrase "all the more" lets me know
  • 00:07:53.469 --> 00:07:54.637
  • Lets me know that joseph's brothers
  • 00:07:54.704 --> 00:07:55.872
  • That joseph's brothers already didn't like him.
  • 00:07:55.938 --> 00:07:58.407
  • Already didn't like him. and we can argue
  • 00:07:58.474 --> 00:07:59.642
  • And we can argue if we want to about
  • 00:07:59.709 --> 00:08:02.078
  • If we want to about whether joseph was wise
  • 00:08:02.144 --> 00:08:04.146
  • Whether joseph was wise to share with his brothers
  • 00:08:04.213 --> 00:08:05.648
  • To share with his brothers the content of his dream.
  • 00:08:05.715 --> 00:08:07.116
  • The content of his dream. there is such a thing
  • 00:08:07.183 --> 00:08:08.084
  • There is such a thing as talking too much,
  • 00:08:08.150 --> 00:08:09.452
  • As talking too much, posting too much.
  • 00:08:09.519 --> 00:08:10.920
  • Posting too much. there is such a thing
  • 00:08:10.987 --> 00:08:11.587
  • There is such a thing as sharing too much.
  • 00:08:11.654 --> 00:08:13.289
  • As sharing too much. and there is such a thing
  • 00:08:13.356 --> 00:08:14.223
  • And there is such a thing as thinking that everybody else
  • 00:08:14.290 --> 00:08:16.092
  • As thinking that everybody else wants to hear what
  • 00:08:16.158 --> 00:08:16.659
  • Wants to hear what god has put on your heart.
  • 00:08:16.726 --> 00:08:19.428
  • God has put on your heart. but one thing that
  • 00:08:19.495 --> 00:08:20.096
  • But one thing that we can conclude from the text
  • 00:08:20.162 --> 00:08:21.430
  • We can conclude from the text even from
  • 00:08:21.497 --> 00:08:21.931
  • Even from a biological perspective
  • 00:08:21.998 --> 00:08:23.466
  • A biological perspective is that joseph was different.
  • 00:08:23.533 --> 00:08:27.703
  • Is that joseph was different. and one thing i've noticed
  • 00:08:27.770 --> 00:08:28.538
  • And one thing i've noticed about having a dream
  • 00:08:28.604 --> 00:08:30.239
  • About having a dream is that a dream
  • 00:08:30.306 --> 00:08:31.807
  • Is that a dream makes you different.
  • 00:08:31.874 --> 00:08:34.544

  • And if i listed their names, you might recognize
  • 00:08:45.521 --> 00:08:46.222
  • You might recognize a few of them.
  • 00:08:46.289 --> 00:08:47.156
  • A few of them. they were the patriarchs
  • 00:08:47.223 --> 00:08:48.925
  • They were the patriarchs of the tribes of israel,
  • 00:08:48.991 --> 00:08:50.660
  • Of the tribes of israel, but joseph didn't come through
  • 00:08:50.726 --> 00:08:52.695
  • But joseph didn't come through the same mom that his brothers
  • 00:08:52.762 --> 00:08:54.297

  • His favorite wife -- holly, you're my favorite wife,
  • 00:09:05.107 --> 00:09:05.808
  • Holly, you're my favorite wife, by the way.
  • 00:09:05.875 --> 00:09:07.076

  • And he felt differently about joseph than the other boys
  • 00:09:17.286 --> 00:09:19.622
  • Joseph than the other boys to the point --
  • 00:09:19.689 --> 00:09:20.256
  • To the point -- i don't know if you've
  • 00:09:20.323 --> 00:09:20.923
  • I don't know if you've read the story lately,
  • 00:09:20.990 --> 00:09:22.792
  • Read the story lately, but you remember he bought him
  • 00:09:22.858 --> 00:09:24.193
  • But you remember he bought him a gucci coat and joseph's always
  • 00:09:24.260 --> 00:09:28.464
  • A gucci coat and joseph's always wearing it around all the time.
  • 00:09:28.531 --> 00:09:29.999
  • Wearing it around all the time. he's like,
  • 00:09:30.066 --> 00:09:30.399
  • He's like, "you like my coat?"
  • 00:09:30.466 --> 00:09:31.200
  • "you like my coat?" and his brothers are like,
  • 00:09:31.267 --> 00:09:31.934
  • And his brothers are like, "we hate your coat."
  • 00:09:32.001 --> 00:09:34.136
  • "we hate your coat." "you like my coat?
  • 00:09:34.203 --> 00:09:35.204
  • "you like my coat? you like my coat?"
  • 00:09:35.271 --> 00:09:36.272
  • You like my coat?" you know, they're like,
  • 00:09:36.339 --> 00:09:37.173
  • You know, they're like, "we hate -- we hate you.
  • 00:09:37.239 --> 00:09:40.443
  • "we hate -- we hate you. we hate you because
  • 00:09:40.509 --> 00:09:42.445
  • We hate you because you're different."
  • 00:09:42.511 --> 00:09:44.380
  • You're different." okay?
  • 00:09:44.447 --> 00:09:45.481
  • Okay? now, i have a teenage son
  • 00:09:45.548 --> 00:09:47.416
  • Now, i have a teenage son right now
  • 00:09:47.483 --> 00:09:48.718
  • Right now and one of the things
  • 00:09:48.784 --> 00:09:49.619
  • And one of the things that i'm trying to work out
  • 00:09:49.685 --> 00:09:50.987
  • That i'm trying to work out with him in real time
  • 00:09:51.053 --> 00:09:52.755
  • With him in real time is that people
  • 00:09:52.822 --> 00:09:55.124
  • Is that people accept what is the same,
  • 00:09:55.191 --> 00:09:59.228
  • Accept what is the same, but they eventually
  • 00:09:59.295 --> 00:10:00.463
  • But they eventually respect what is different.
  • 00:10:00.529 --> 00:10:07.536
  • Respect what is different. people eventually come around
  • 00:10:07.603 --> 00:10:09.905
  • People eventually come around and respect what stands out.
  • 00:10:09.972 --> 00:10:12.975
  • And respect what stands out. but what happens to most of us
  • 00:10:13.042 --> 00:10:15.378
  • But what happens to most of us is that the moment
  • 00:10:15.444 --> 00:10:16.746
  • Is that the moment we start to realize
  • 00:10:16.812 --> 00:10:17.913
  • We start to realize the differences between us
  • 00:10:17.980 --> 00:10:20.149
  • The differences between us and other people,
  • 00:10:20.216 --> 00:10:21.851
  • And other people, we downplay our distinctives
  • 00:10:21.917 --> 00:10:24.820
  • We downplay our distinctives in order to fit in
  • 00:10:24.887 --> 00:10:26.722
  • In order to fit in and conform with culture.
  • 00:10:26.789 --> 00:10:30.059
  • And conform with culture. one thing i'm proud about
  • 00:10:30.126 --> 00:10:31.494
  • One thing i'm proud about when i read about joseph
  • 00:10:31.560 --> 00:10:32.795
  • When i read about joseph and i know it's weird to say
  • 00:10:32.862 --> 00:10:34.296
  • And i know it's weird to say that i'm proud of joseph
  • 00:10:34.363 --> 00:10:35.331
  • That i'm proud of joseph like he cares,
  • 00:10:35.398 --> 00:10:37.066
  • Like he cares, but i'm proud that he had
  • 00:10:37.133 --> 00:10:37.933
  • But i'm proud that he had the courage to wear
  • 00:10:38.000 --> 00:10:39.368
  • The courage to wear his coat anyway.
  • 00:10:39.435 --> 00:10:42.104
  • His coat anyway. you know what i mean?
  • 00:10:42.171 --> 00:10:42.705
  • You know what i mean? it may have been unwise,
  • 00:10:42.772 --> 00:10:45.274
  • It may have been unwise, but i'm proud of him
  • 00:10:45.341 --> 00:10:46.776
  • But i'm proud of him that he was not afraid
  • 00:10:46.842 --> 00:10:48.210
  • That he was not afraid to show up in the room
  • 00:10:48.277 --> 00:10:49.545
  • To show up in the room looking different because
  • 00:10:49.612 --> 00:10:51.180
  • Looking different because he was clothed with the fabric
  • 00:10:51.247 --> 00:10:52.748
  • He was clothed with the fabric of the favor of his father.
  • 00:10:52.815 --> 00:10:54.717
  • Of the favor of his father. and i wonder are you
  • 00:10:54.784 --> 00:10:55.685
  • And i wonder are you courageous enough
  • 00:10:55.751 --> 00:10:57.453
  • Courageous enough to wear your coat?
  • 00:10:57.520 --> 00:10:59.155
  • To wear your coat? because a lot of times
  • 00:10:59.221 --> 00:11:00.156
  • Because a lot of times what i found is that god
  • 00:11:00.222 --> 00:11:02.024
  • What i found is that god will begin to show you
  • 00:11:02.091 --> 00:11:03.159
  • Will begin to show you things about yourself,
  • 00:11:03.225 --> 00:11:04.593
  • Things about yourself, about your life,
  • 00:11:04.660 --> 00:11:05.861
  • About your life, about your calling,
  • 00:11:05.928 --> 00:11:07.096
  • About your calling, about your direction,
  • 00:11:07.163 --> 00:11:08.564
  • About your direction, about what he's put
  • 00:11:08.631 --> 00:11:09.298
  • About what he's put inside of you,
  • 00:11:09.365 --> 00:11:10.599
  • Inside of you, about the gifts
  • 00:11:10.666 --> 00:11:11.200
  • About the gifts he's given you,
  • 00:11:11.267 --> 00:11:12.568
  • He's given you, but someone will actually
  • 00:11:12.635 --> 00:11:15.004
  • But someone will actually beat the distinctive
  • 00:11:15.071 --> 00:11:16.372
  • Beat the distinctive out of you if you don't know
  • 00:11:16.439 --> 00:11:18.140
  • Out of you if you don't know clearly enough that
  • 00:11:18.207 --> 00:11:19.742
  • Clearly enough that i have a calling from god,
  • 00:11:19.809 --> 00:11:21.410
  • I have a calling from god, who is greater than people,
  • 00:11:21.477 --> 00:11:23.245
  • Who is greater than people, and if he is for me,
  • 00:11:23.312 --> 00:11:24.647
  • And if he is for me, who can be against me.
  • 00:11:24.714 --> 00:11:26.482
  • Who can be against me. touch somebody next to you,
  • 00:11:26.549 --> 00:11:27.750
  • Touch somebody next to you, and say, "i'm gonna
  • 00:11:27.817 --> 00:11:28.317
  • And say, "i'm gonna wear my coat even if people
  • 00:11:28.384 --> 00:11:31.120
  • Wear my coat even if people criticize me for it."
  • 00:11:31.187 --> 00:11:32.888
  • Criticize me for it." i'm not ashamed
  • 00:11:32.955 --> 00:11:33.723
  • I'm not ashamed to walk in the love
  • 00:11:33.789 --> 00:11:34.724
  • To walk in the love and the favor of god.
  • 00:11:34.790 --> 00:11:36.759
  • And the favor of god. oh, we need some christians
  • 00:11:36.826 --> 00:11:38.761
  • Oh, we need some christians who don't check their coat
  • 00:11:38.828 --> 00:11:40.262
  • Who don't check their coat at the door of culture,
  • 00:11:40.329 --> 00:11:41.664
  • At the door of culture, who are unashamed to be
  • 00:11:41.731 --> 00:11:42.698
  • Who are unashamed to be optimistic about the future
  • 00:11:42.765 --> 00:11:44.800
  • Optimistic about the future because you know
  • 00:11:44.867 --> 00:11:45.735
  • Because you know god is already there
  • 00:11:45.801 --> 00:11:47.103
  • God is already there if he's the author
  • 00:11:47.169 --> 00:11:48.170
  • If he's the author and the finisher of your faith.
  • 00:11:48.237 --> 00:11:50.072
  • You see what i'm saying?
  • 00:11:53.843 --> 00:11:54.510
  • You see what i'm saying? a dream will make you different
  • 00:11:54.577 --> 00:11:57.346
  • A dream will make you different and it takes courage
  • 00:11:57.413 --> 00:11:58.581

  • To speak different. if you get a hold of a dream

  • If you get a hold of a dream or better said
  • 00:12:05.521 --> 00:12:06.055
  • Or better said if a dream gets hold of you
  • 00:12:06.122 --> 00:12:07.790
  • If a dream gets hold of you from the throne of god,
  • 00:12:07.857 --> 00:12:09.291
  • From the throne of god, it'll make you walk different,
  • 00:12:09.358 --> 00:12:10.926

  • Had the courage to be different.
  • 00:12:28.811 --> 00:12:31.680
  • To be different. and i wonder
  • 00:12:31.747 --> 00:12:32.148
  • And i wonder do we have the courage

  • Do we have the courage to be different?
  • 00:12:35.217 --> 00:12:39.288
  • To be different? the weird thing about
  • 00:12:39.355 --> 00:12:40.990
  • The weird thing about our church is that a lot
  • 00:12:41.056 --> 00:12:44.360
  • Our church is that a lot of times people will be
  • 00:12:44.426 --> 00:12:45.895
  • Of times people will be attracted to our church
  • 00:12:45.961 --> 00:12:47.163
  • Attracted to our church because it's different
  • 00:12:47.229 --> 00:12:49.398
  • Because it's different and then when they
  • 00:12:49.465 --> 00:12:50.399
  • And then when they get to the church,
  • 00:12:50.466 --> 00:12:52.301
  • Get to the church, they'll start trying
  • 00:12:52.368 --> 00:12:53.402
  • They'll start trying to tell us how we need
  • 00:12:53.469 --> 00:12:54.737
  • To tell us how we need to make it like the church
  • 00:12:54.804 --> 00:12:56.338
  • To make it like the church that they left to come
  • 00:12:56.405 --> 00:12:56.939
  • That they left to come to the church
  • 00:12:57.006 --> 00:12:57.439
  • To the church that was different.
  • 00:12:57.506 --> 00:13:00.176
  • That was different. i don't wanna say amen
  • 00:13:00.242 --> 00:13:01.076
  • I don't wanna say amen to the preacher today.
  • 00:13:01.143 --> 00:13:04.713
  • To the preacher today. it's the truest thing
  • 00:13:04.780 --> 00:13:05.581
  • It's the truest thing like you're attracted
  • 00:13:05.648 --> 00:13:07.183
  • Like you're attracted to something because
  • 00:13:07.249 --> 00:13:08.184
  • To something because it's different.
  • 00:13:08.250 --> 00:13:10.686
  • It's different. and they even said
  • 00:13:10.753 --> 00:13:11.787
  • And they even said in some marriage
  • 00:13:11.854 --> 00:13:12.188
  • In some marriage that before marriage,
  • 00:13:12.254 --> 00:13:12.922
  • That before marriage, opposites attract
  • 00:13:12.988 --> 00:13:13.489
  • Opposites attract and then opposites attack
  • 00:13:13.556 --> 00:13:14.857
  • And then opposites attack because you're attracted
  • 00:13:14.924 --> 00:13:15.791
  • Because you're attracted to what's different,
  • 00:13:15.858 --> 00:13:16.625
  • To what's different, you're drawn to
  • 00:13:16.692 --> 00:13:17.393
  • You're drawn to what's different.
  • 00:13:17.459 --> 00:13:18.227
  • What's different. not at first.
  • 00:13:18.294 --> 00:13:19.728
  • Not at first. at first, you fear it.
  • 00:13:19.795 --> 00:13:22.131
  • At first, you fear it. that's why they had to
  • 00:13:22.198 --> 00:13:23.365
  • That's why they had to take the "old town road"
  • 00:13:23.432 --> 00:13:24.400
  • Take the "old town road" off of the billboard charts
  • 00:13:24.466 --> 00:13:26.235
  • Off of the billboard charts on country music
  • 00:13:26.302 --> 00:13:27.570
  • On country music because it was too different.
  • 00:13:27.636 --> 00:13:29.672
  • Because it was too different. they couldn't find a category
  • 00:13:29.738 --> 00:13:31.407
  • They couldn't find a category for it and they said
  • 00:13:31.473 --> 00:13:32.741
  • For it and they said it's not country enough,
  • 00:13:32.808 --> 00:13:34.009
  • It's not country enough, but it's not rap enough
  • 00:13:34.076 --> 00:13:35.711
  • But it's not rap enough and we don't know what it is,
  • 00:13:35.778 --> 00:13:36.712
  • And we don't know what it is, it's different.
  • 00:13:36.779 --> 00:13:38.514
  • It's different. that's why they
  • 00:13:38.581 --> 00:13:38.881
  • That's why they crucified jesus.
  • 00:13:38.948 --> 00:13:41.884
  • Crucified jesus. you know, you don't have
  • 00:13:41.951 --> 00:13:42.618
  • You know, you don't have many preachers that can
  • 00:13:42.685 --> 00:13:43.219
  • Many preachers that can put lil nas x and jesus
  • 00:13:43.285 --> 00:13:45.521
  • Put lil nas x and jesus in the same paragraph.
  • 00:13:45.588 --> 00:13:48.057
  • In the same paragraph. but he was so different.
  • 00:13:48.123 --> 00:13:50.125
  • But he was so different. we don't know
  • 00:13:50.192 --> 00:13:50.526
  • We don't know what to do with him.
  • 00:13:50.593 --> 00:13:51.126
  • What to do with him. he's grace and truth.
  • 00:13:51.193 --> 00:13:52.661
  • He's grace and truth. he's different.
  • 00:13:52.728 --> 00:13:54.730
  • He's different. somebody shout, "i'm different."
  • 00:13:54.797 --> 00:13:57.032
  • Somebody shout, "i'm different." and i don't mean different
  • 00:13:57.099 --> 00:13:57.933
  • And i don't mean different in style,
  • 00:13:58.000 --> 00:13:58.634
  • In style, i mean different in substance.
  • 00:13:58.701 --> 00:14:01.804
  • I mean different in substance. i don't mean different
  • 00:14:01.871 --> 00:14:02.371
  • I don't mean different just for the sake of
  • 00:14:02.438 --> 00:14:03.172
  • Just for the sake of difference because that's
  • 00:14:03.239 --> 00:14:04.473
  • Difference because that's frankly kind of annoying
  • 00:14:04.540 --> 00:14:06.208
  • Frankly kind of annoying and there's always
  • 00:14:06.275 --> 00:14:07.009
  • And there's always a temptation, you know.
  • 00:14:07.076 --> 00:14:08.444
  • A temptation, you know. i noticed that some people
  • 00:14:08.510 --> 00:14:09.478
  • I noticed that some people just wanna be different
  • 00:14:09.545 --> 00:14:11.146
  • Just wanna be different just to be different.
  • 00:14:11.213 --> 00:14:12.748
  • Just to be different. but there's nothing different
  • 00:14:12.815 --> 00:14:13.582
  • But there's nothing different about being different
  • 00:14:13.649 --> 00:14:14.350
  • About being different to be different.
  • 00:14:14.416 --> 00:14:15.217
  • To be different. there's something about
  • 00:14:15.284 --> 00:14:15.818
  • There's something about being different because
  • 00:14:15.885 --> 00:14:17.486
  • Being different because you have a different set
  • 00:14:17.553 --> 00:14:18.420
  • You have a different set of values and a different dream.
  • 00:14:18.487 --> 00:14:22.324
  • Of values and a different dream. see, i don't just dream
  • 00:14:22.391 --> 00:14:24.393
  • See, i don't just dream of making it through the day.
  • 00:14:24.460 --> 00:14:26.028
  • Of making it through the day. i don't just dream
  • 00:14:26.095 --> 00:14:26.929
  • I don't just dream of surviving my life.
  • 00:14:26.996 --> 00:14:28.497
  • Of surviving my life. i don't just dream --
  • 00:14:28.564 --> 00:14:29.365
  • I don't just dream -- when you get a dream,
  • 00:14:29.431 --> 00:14:30.266
  • When you get a dream, it'll make you different.
  • 00:14:30.332 --> 00:14:32.301
  • It'll make you different. you'll start sacrificing
  • 00:14:32.368 --> 00:14:33.669
  • You'll start sacrificing and people will think
  • 00:14:33.736 --> 00:14:34.336
  • And people will think you're crazy because
  • 00:14:34.403 --> 00:14:35.304
  • You're crazy because of what you sacrificed.
  • 00:14:35.371 --> 00:14:36.906
  • Of what you sacrificed. even if you go on a diet
  • 00:14:36.972 --> 00:14:38.474
  • Even if you go on a diet because you have a dream
  • 00:14:38.540 --> 00:14:39.275
  • Because you have a dream to lose 20 pounds,
  • 00:14:39.341 --> 00:14:40.409
  • To lose 20 pounds, the first thing that
  • 00:14:40.476 --> 00:14:41.110
  • The first thing that everybody around you
  • 00:14:41.176 --> 00:14:42.044
  • Everybody around you is gonna say is
  • 00:14:42.111 --> 00:14:42.578
  • Is gonna say is you're no fun anymore.
  • 00:14:42.645 --> 00:14:44.647
  • You're no fun anymore. you used to be so much fun.
  • 00:14:44.713 --> 00:14:46.048
  • You used to be so much fun. you used to just eats
  • 00:14:46.115 --> 00:14:47.016
  • You used to just eats all the time [indiscernible].
  • 00:14:47.082 --> 00:14:49.752
  • All the time [indiscernible]. now, don't let the fact
  • 00:14:49.818 --> 00:14:50.753
  • Now, don't let the fact that they don't have
  • 00:14:50.819 --> 00:14:51.320
  • That they don't have the discipline
  • 00:14:51.387 --> 00:14:51.987
  • The discipline to eat something different
  • 00:14:52.054 --> 00:14:53.989
  • To eat something different cause you to give up on a goal
  • 00:14:54.056 --> 00:14:55.224
  • Cause you to give up on a goal that you set that's real
  • 00:14:55.291 --> 00:14:56.325
  • That you set that's real for your life.
  • 00:14:56.392 --> 00:14:58.027
  • For your life. and if it's true with a diet,
  • 00:14:58.093 --> 00:14:59.528
  • And if it's true with a diet, it's much more true
  • 00:14:59.595 --> 00:15:00.362
  • It's much more true with destiny.
  • 00:15:00.429 --> 00:15:01.830
  • With destiny. i wonder, have you been
  • 00:15:01.897 --> 00:15:02.564
  • I wonder, have you been dumbing down yourself
  • 00:15:02.631 --> 00:15:05.100
  • Dumbing down yourself because to be different
  • 00:15:05.167 --> 00:15:06.168
  • Because to be different is too painful.
  • 00:15:06.235 --> 00:15:08.070
  • Is too painful. and if you're not careful,
  • 00:15:08.137 --> 00:15:09.104
  • And if you're not careful, you will be conformed
  • 00:15:09.171 --> 00:15:10.673
  • You will be conformed to the patterns of this world
  • 00:15:10.739 --> 00:15:12.608
  • To the patterns of this world rather than being transformed
  • 00:15:12.675 --> 00:15:14.076
  • Rather than being transformed by the renewing of your mind.
  • 00:15:14.143 --> 00:15:16.245
  • By the renewing of your mind. christians are supposed
  • 00:15:16.312 --> 00:15:17.112
  • Christians are supposed to see different,
  • 00:15:17.179 --> 00:15:18.714
  • To see different, think different,
  • 00:15:18.781 --> 00:15:20.182
  • Think different, understand different.
  • 00:15:20.249 --> 00:15:21.917
  • Understand different. it's a different perspective.
  • 00:15:21.984 --> 00:15:23.419
  • It's a different perspective. i always thought that
  • 00:15:23.485 --> 00:15:24.620
  • I always thought that joseph's life was a story
  • 00:15:24.687 --> 00:15:26.922
  • Joseph's life was a story about perseverance,
  • 00:15:26.989 --> 00:15:28.824
  • About perseverance, you know.
  • 00:15:28.891 --> 00:15:29.491
  • You know. joseph had a dream
  • 00:15:29.558 --> 00:15:30.526
  • Joseph had a dream when he was young
  • 00:15:30.592 --> 00:15:31.560
  • When he was young and then he had to go through
  • 00:15:31.627 --> 00:15:32.594
  • And then he had to go through a lot of things,
  • 00:15:32.661 --> 00:15:33.128
  • A lot of things, but, you know,
  • 00:15:33.195 --> 00:15:34.029
  • But, you know, don't give up because
  • 00:15:34.096 --> 00:15:35.230
  • Don't give up because eventually you will
  • 00:15:35.297 --> 00:15:35.998
  • Eventually you will achieve your dream.
  • 00:15:36.065 --> 00:15:37.066
  • Achieve your dream. yet that is a cultural
  • 00:15:37.132 --> 00:15:38.600
  • Yet that is a cultural understanding of dreams,
  • 00:15:38.667 --> 00:15:40.536
  • Understanding of dreams, not a christian understanding
  • 00:15:40.602 --> 00:15:42.137
  • Not a christian understanding of dreams, not a scriptural
  • 00:15:42.204 --> 00:15:43.372
  • Of dreams, not a scriptural understanding of dreams.
  • 00:15:43.439 --> 00:15:45.040
  • Understanding of dreams. and we have a really bad habit
  • 00:15:45.107 --> 00:15:46.742
  • And we have a really bad habit of taking a concept
  • 00:15:46.809 --> 00:15:48.377
  • Of taking a concept like a dream
  • 00:15:48.444 --> 00:15:49.511
  • Like a dream and then overlaying
  • 00:15:49.578 --> 00:15:50.913
  • And then overlaying our own preferences
  • 00:15:50.980 --> 00:15:52.748
  • Our own preferences and our own prejudices
  • 00:15:52.815 --> 00:15:54.717
  • And our own prejudices on that concept
  • 00:15:54.783 --> 00:15:56.085
  • On that concept and so we make it what it's not
  • 00:15:56.151 --> 00:15:58.487
  • And so we make it what it's not and we miss what it is,
  • 00:15:58.554 --> 00:16:02.424
  • And we miss what it is, 'cause it's really common
  • 00:16:02.491 --> 00:16:03.425
  • 'cause it's really common for people to say
  • 00:16:03.492 --> 00:16:05.227
  • For people to say follow your dreams.
  • 00:16:05.294 --> 00:16:08.230
  • Follow your dreams. yet if you study the life
  • 00:16:08.297 --> 00:16:10.265
  • Yet if you study the life of joseph and i mean
  • 00:16:10.332 --> 00:16:12.201
  • Of joseph and i mean really read every single word,
  • 00:16:12.267 --> 00:16:14.003
  • Really read every single word, jot and tittle,
  • 00:16:14.069 --> 00:16:14.803
  • Jot and tittle, every single indention,
  • 00:16:14.870 --> 00:16:15.904
  • Every single indention, every single period
  • 00:16:15.971 --> 00:16:16.872
  • Every single period and comma like i did preparing
  • 00:16:16.939 --> 00:16:18.440
  • And comma like i did preparing to preach this,
  • 00:16:18.507 --> 00:16:20.576
  • To preach this, you will see a phrase
  • 00:16:20.642 --> 00:16:21.710
  • You will see a phrase iterated over and over again
  • 00:16:21.777 --> 00:16:23.512
  • Iterated over and over again no matter what he went through
  • 00:16:23.579 --> 00:16:24.513
  • No matter what he went through that says, "the lord
  • 00:16:24.580 --> 00:16:25.047
  • That says, "the lord was with joseph."
  • 00:16:25.114 --> 00:16:27.449
  • Was with joseph." that's a statement
  • 00:16:27.516 --> 00:16:28.150
  • That's a statement about god's presence.
  • 00:16:28.217 --> 00:16:30.452
  • About god's presence. you will see that wherever
  • 00:16:30.519 --> 00:16:31.453
  • You will see that wherever he was, god promoted him,
  • 00:16:31.520 --> 00:16:34.390
  • He was, god promoted him, and that's a statement
  • 00:16:34.456 --> 00:16:35.024
  • And that's a statement about purpose.
  • 00:16:35.090 --> 00:16:36.925
  • About purpose. but the story of joseph is
  • 00:16:36.992 --> 00:16:38.427
  • But the story of joseph is not about getting a dream
  • 00:16:38.494 --> 00:16:40.662
  • Not about getting a dream and holding on tight to
  • 00:16:40.729 --> 00:16:41.864
  • And holding on tight to the dream and persevering.
  • 00:16:41.930 --> 00:16:43.499
  • The dream and persevering. 'cause i used to think
  • 00:16:43.565 --> 00:16:44.199
  • 'cause i used to think this was the story of joseph,
  • 00:16:44.266 --> 00:16:45.234
  • This was the story of joseph, like don't let anybody
  • 00:16:45.300 --> 00:16:47.102
  • Like don't let anybody talk you out of your dream.
  • 00:16:47.169 --> 00:16:49.038
  • Talk you out of your dream. if your mom told you
  • 00:16:49.104 --> 00:16:50.439
  • If your mom told you that you're gonna be the next,
  • 00:16:50.506 --> 00:16:51.974
  • That you're gonna be the next, you know,
  • 00:16:52.041 --> 00:16:52.641
  • You know, -- the next whatever,
  • 00:16:52.708 --> 00:16:53.876
  • -- the next whatever, just hold onto your dream.
  • 00:16:53.942 --> 00:16:55.411
  • Just hold onto your dream. and then anybody
  • 00:16:55.477 --> 00:16:55.978
  • And then anybody who doesn't agree with
  • 00:16:56.045 --> 00:16:56.678
  • Who doesn't agree with your dream is a hater.
  • 00:16:56.745 --> 00:16:59.715
  • Your dream is a hater. maybe not.
  • 00:16:59.782 --> 00:17:02.484
  • Maybe not. maybe your mom just
  • 00:17:02.551 --> 00:17:03.185
  • Maybe your mom just loved you too much to hear
  • 00:17:03.252 --> 00:17:04.453
  • Loved you too much to hear the bad notes you were hitting
  • 00:17:04.520 --> 00:17:05.521
  • The bad notes you were hitting and you're not supposed
  • 00:17:05.587 --> 00:17:06.288
  • And you're not supposed to be a professional singer.
  • 00:17:06.355 --> 00:17:10.759
  • To be a professional singer. just a thought.
  • 00:17:10.826 --> 00:17:13.328
  • Just a thought. no, i'm sick of it.
  • 00:17:13.395 --> 00:17:14.163
  • No, i'm sick of it. i'm really sick of it.
  • 00:17:14.229 --> 00:17:15.931
  • I'm really sick of it. 'cause we take joseph --
  • 00:17:15.998 --> 00:17:16.965
  • 'cause we take joseph -- it's not fair to joseph.
  • 00:17:17.032 --> 00:17:17.900
  • It's not fair to joseph. joseph went through
  • 00:17:17.966 --> 00:17:18.367
  • Joseph went through this whole life,
  • 00:17:18.434 --> 00:17:19.401
  • This whole life, he was called and chosen,
  • 00:17:19.468 --> 00:17:21.537
  • He was called and chosen, and there was all kind of
  • 00:17:21.603 --> 00:17:22.337
  • And there was all kind of conflict that came along
  • 00:17:22.404 --> 00:17:23.605
  • Conflict that came along and were like
  • 00:17:23.672 --> 00:17:24.039
  • And were like joseph had a dream.
  • 00:17:24.106 --> 00:17:25.274
  • Joseph had a dream. do you have a dream?
  • 00:17:25.340 --> 00:17:26.408
  • Do you have a dream? would you like to open
  • 00:17:26.475 --> 00:17:27.109
  • Would you like to open your own company?
  • 00:17:27.176 --> 00:17:28.277
  • Your own company? be like joseph,
  • 00:17:28.343 --> 00:17:29.311
  • Be like joseph, have a dream,
  • 00:17:29.378 --> 00:17:29.812
  • Have a dream, and then you can make it
  • 00:17:29.878 --> 00:17:30.612
  • And then you can make it from the pit to the palace.
  • 00:17:30.679 --> 00:17:33.549
  • From the pit to the palace. hold on in the pit
  • 00:17:33.615 --> 00:17:34.750
  • Hold on in the pit because there's a palace
  • 00:17:34.817 --> 00:17:35.517
  • Because there's a palace on the other side.
  • 00:17:35.584 --> 00:17:37.086
  • On the other side. let me go into it
  • 00:17:37.152 --> 00:17:37.820
  • Let me go into it for a moment.
  • 00:17:37.886 --> 00:17:38.720
  • For a moment. that is not the story
  • 00:17:38.787 --> 00:17:39.855
  • That is not the story of joseph's life.
  • 00:17:39.922 --> 00:17:42.458
  • Of joseph's life. the story of joseph's life
  • 00:17:42.524 --> 00:17:43.992
  • The story of joseph's life has nothing to do with
  • 00:17:44.059 --> 00:17:46.228
  • Has nothing to do with if you have a dream
  • 00:17:46.295 --> 00:17:47.463
  • If you have a dream that you can think of
  • 00:17:47.529 --> 00:17:48.464
  • That you can think of that's big enough,
  • 00:17:48.530 --> 00:17:49.164
  • That's big enough, god is obligated to bless it.
  • 00:17:49.231 --> 00:17:50.666
  • God is obligated to bless it. watch this.
  • 00:17:50.732 --> 00:17:52.868
  • Watch this. joseph didn't ask god
  • 00:17:52.935 --> 00:17:53.669
  • Joseph didn't ask god for a dream.
  • 00:17:53.735 --> 00:17:58.807
  • Joseph did not
  • 00:18:01.176 --> 00:18:01.810
  • Joseph did not make a vision board.
  • 00:18:01.877 --> 00:18:04.146
  • Make a vision board. that doesn't mean
  • 00:18:04.213 --> 00:18:04.613
  • That doesn't mean you can't make one.
  • 00:18:04.680 --> 00:18:05.881
  • You can't make one. i've made a few myself.
  • 00:18:05.948 --> 00:18:07.583
  • I've made a few myself. let's just be clear that
  • 00:18:07.649 --> 00:18:09.218
  • Let's just be clear that we mean the same thing
  • 00:18:09.284 --> 00:18:10.252
  • We mean the same thing when we say a dream.
  • 00:18:10.319 --> 00:18:13.489
  • When we say a dream. and then it becomes
  • 00:18:13.555 --> 00:18:15.090
  • And then it becomes very devastating --
  • 00:18:15.157 --> 00:18:16.191
  • Very devastating -- watch this -- because your dream
  • 00:18:16.258 --> 00:18:18.127
  • Watch this -- because your dream can be a distraction.
  • 00:18:18.193 --> 00:18:21.730
  • Can be a distraction. joseph's dream was very
  • 00:18:21.797 --> 00:18:23.799
  • Joseph's dream was very specific and epic
  • 00:18:23.866 --> 00:18:25.934
  • Specific and epic and it had broad implications,
  • 00:18:26.001 --> 00:18:28.070
  • You know.
  • 00:18:28.170 --> 00:18:28.704
  • You know. and he tells his brothers
  • 00:18:28.770 --> 00:18:29.638
  • And he tells his brothers his dreams.
  • 00:18:29.705 --> 00:18:30.506
  • His dreams. he comes out in his coat
  • 00:18:30.572 --> 00:18:31.573
  • He comes out in his coat one day and they're like,
  • 00:18:31.640 --> 00:18:32.341
  • One day and they're like, "oh, god, this guy."
  • 00:18:32.407 --> 00:18:33.475
  • "oh, god, this guy." and so he comes over
  • 00:18:33.542 --> 00:18:34.443
  • And so he comes over and they're like,
  • 00:18:34.510 --> 00:18:35.077
  • And they're like, "you talk to him this time.
  • 00:18:35.144 --> 00:18:35.911
  • "you talk to him this time. i'm sick of talking to him."
  • 00:18:35.978 --> 00:18:36.645
  • I'm sick of talking to him." he's like, "hey, guys,
  • 00:18:36.712 --> 00:18:37.679
  • Guess what?
  • 00:18:37.779 --> 00:18:39.047
  • Guess what? i had a dream.
  • 00:18:39.114 --> 00:18:40.983
  • I had a dream. you wanna hear my dream?"
  • 00:18:41.049 --> 00:18:42.985
  • You wanna hear my dream?" they're like, "no,
  • 00:18:43.051 --> 00:18:43.986
  • They're like, "no, we hate your dream.
  • 00:18:44.052 --> 00:18:44.987
  • We hate your dream. we hate your coat.
  • 00:18:45.053 --> 00:18:45.954
  • We hate your coat. we hate your voice.
  • 00:18:46.021 --> 00:18:47.022
  • We hate your voice. we hate you.
  • 00:18:47.089 --> 00:18:48.056
  • We hate you. you're different."
  • 00:18:48.123 --> 00:18:49.057
  • You're different." but he didn't really care
  • 00:18:49.124 --> 00:18:50.492
  • But he didn't really care if they wanted to hear it,
  • 00:18:50.559 --> 00:18:51.260
  • If they wanted to hear it, he was gonna tell 'em anyway.
  • 00:18:51.326 --> 00:18:53.829
  • He was gonna tell 'em anyway. joseph needed a journal
  • 00:18:53.896 --> 00:18:54.563
  • Joseph needed a journal by the way so he could
  • 00:18:54.630 --> 00:18:55.364
  • By the way so he could write some of this down
  • 00:18:55.430 --> 00:18:56.265
  • Write some of this down and not tell other people.
  • 00:18:56.331 --> 00:18:57.933
  • And not tell other people. he needed somewhere
  • 00:18:58.000 --> 00:18:58.500
  • He needed somewhere he could just process his dreams
  • 00:18:58.567 --> 00:18:59.701
  • He could just process his dreams where he didn't let other people
  • 00:18:59.768 --> 00:19:00.636
  • Where he didn't let other people get involved too soon.
  • 00:19:00.702 --> 00:19:01.770
  • Get involved too soon. nevertheless,
  • 00:19:01.837 --> 00:19:03.205
  • Nevertheless, even joseph's inability
  • 00:19:03.272 --> 00:19:05.007
  • Even joseph's inability to discern the nature
  • 00:19:05.073 --> 00:19:06.141
  • To discern the nature of the dream and who was capable
  • 00:19:06.208 --> 00:19:07.409
  • Of the dream and who was capable of handing it
  • 00:19:07.476 --> 00:19:07.776
  • Of handing it played a part in leading him
  • 00:19:07.843 --> 00:19:09.178
  • Played a part in leading him to the place where he could do
  • 00:19:09.244 --> 00:19:10.345
  • To the place where he could do the dream that god put
  • 00:19:10.412 --> 00:19:11.213
  • The dream that god put in his heart.
  • 00:19:11.280 --> 00:19:14.583
  • In his heart. did you feel god
  • 00:19:14.650 --> 00:19:15.184
  • Did you feel god on that what i just said?
  • 00:19:15.250 --> 00:19:17.286
  • On that what i just said? because god's dream
  • 00:19:17.352 --> 00:19:18.620
  • Because god's dream for my life will involve
  • 00:19:18.687 --> 00:19:20.389
  • For my life will involve my decisions
  • 00:19:20.455 --> 00:19:21.857
  • My decisions even if my decisions
  • 00:19:21.924 --> 00:19:22.858
  • Even if my decisions are immature.
  • 00:19:22.925 --> 00:19:24.193
  • Are immature. god will use some of the desires
  • 00:19:24.259 --> 00:19:25.961
  • God will use some of the desires in your heart that aren't
  • 00:19:26.028 --> 00:19:27.262
  • In your heart that aren't good desires at first.
  • 00:19:27.329 --> 00:19:29.164
  • Good desires at first. let psalm 37:4 says,
  • 00:19:29.231 --> 00:19:31.767
  • Let psalm 37:4 says, "if you delight yourself
  • 00:19:31.833 --> 00:19:32.601
  • "if you delight yourself in the lord,
  • 00:19:32.668 --> 00:19:33.602
  • In the lord, he will give you
  • 00:19:33.669 --> 00:19:34.269
  • He will give you the desires of your heart."
  • 00:19:34.336 --> 00:19:35.604
  • The desires of your heart." and he will take
  • 00:19:35.671 --> 00:19:36.371
  • And he will take the desires that you had
  • 00:19:36.438 --> 00:19:37.906
  • The desires that you had and purify them and he will
  • 00:19:37.973 --> 00:19:39.508
  • And purify them and he will rinse them and he will separate
  • 00:19:39.575 --> 00:19:41.443
  • Rinse them and he will separate the wheat from the chaff
  • 00:19:41.510 --> 00:19:42.878
  • The wheat from the chaff to bring you to
  • 00:19:42.945 --> 00:19:43.445
  • To bring you to an ultimate place of purpose.
  • 00:19:43.512 --> 00:19:45.781
  • An ultimate place of purpose. but when joseph started
  • 00:19:45.847 --> 00:19:46.615
  • But when joseph started sharing his dream
  • 00:19:46.682 --> 00:19:47.549
  • Sharing his dream with his brothers,
  • 00:19:47.616 --> 00:19:48.116
  • With his brothers, it was all about him.
  • 00:19:48.183 --> 00:19:49.651
  • It was all about him. "hey, hey, i had a dream
  • 00:19:49.718 --> 00:19:51.620
  • "hey, hey, i had a dream and we -- it was awesome.
  • 00:19:51.687 --> 00:19:53.522
  • And we -- it was awesome. we were binding our sheaves
  • 00:19:53.589 --> 00:19:54.923
  • We were binding our sheaves of grain and we were --
  • 00:19:54.990 --> 00:19:56.491
  • Of grain and we were -- and like your sheaves
  • 00:19:56.558 --> 00:19:57.960
  • And like your sheaves started bowing down
  • 00:19:58.026 --> 00:19:59.194
  • Started bowing down to my sheaves
  • 00:19:59.261 --> 00:20:00.329
  • To my sheaves and isn't that awesome?"
  • 00:20:00.395 --> 00:20:02.097
  • And isn't that awesome?" they're like, "no,
  • 00:20:02.164 --> 00:20:02.631
  • They're like, "no, it's not awesome.
  • 00:20:02.698 --> 00:20:03.232
  • It's not awesome. we hate your dream.
  • 00:20:03.298 --> 00:20:03.932
  • We hate your dream. we hate your coat.
  • 00:20:03.999 --> 00:20:04.666
  • We hate your coat. we hate your --"
  • 00:20:04.733 --> 00:20:05.567
  • We hate your --" and he's like,
  • 00:20:05.634 --> 00:20:05.968
  • And he's like, "but then i had another dream.
  • 00:20:06.034 --> 00:20:07.803
  • "but then i had another dream. and in this dream,
  • 00:20:07.869 --> 00:20:09.037
  • And in this dream, there were 11 stars."
  • 00:20:09.104 --> 00:20:10.372
  • There were 11 stars." i don't know why joseph
  • 00:20:10.439 --> 00:20:11.006
  • I don't know why joseph sounds keanu reeves.
  • 00:20:11.073 --> 00:20:13.542
  • Sounds keanu reeves. "there were 11 stars
  • 00:20:13.609 --> 00:20:14.776
  • "there were 11 stars and a sun and a moon,
  • 00:20:14.843 --> 00:20:16.178
  • And a sun and a moon, and they were all
  • 00:20:16.245 --> 00:20:16.912
  • And they were all bowing down to me.
  • 00:20:16.979 --> 00:20:18.146
  • Bowing down to me. isn't my dream awesome?"
  • 00:20:18.213 --> 00:20:19.581
  • Isn't my dream awesome?" and they're like, "no,
  • 00:20:19.648 --> 00:20:20.215
  • And they're like, "no, we don't like your dream.
  • 00:20:20.282 --> 00:20:21.783
  • We don't like your dream. in fact, we hate your dream
  • 00:20:21.850 --> 00:20:23.318
  • In fact, we hate your dream so much that we are about
  • 00:20:23.385 --> 00:20:24.886
  • So much that we are about to push you in a pit
  • 00:20:24.953 --> 00:20:26.388
  • To push you in a pit and leave you for dead."
  • 00:20:26.455 --> 00:20:27.789
  • And leave you for dead." and if it hadn't of been
  • 00:20:27.856 --> 00:20:28.523
  • And if it hadn't of been for reuben, who decided
  • 00:20:28.590 --> 00:20:29.958
  • For reuben, who decided we should at least
  • 00:20:30.025 --> 00:20:30.792
  • We should at least get 20 shekels of silver
  • 00:20:30.859 --> 00:20:31.927
  • Get 20 shekels of silver out of this boy,
  • 00:20:31.994 --> 00:20:32.894
  • Out of this boy, there's no need to kill him
  • 00:20:32.961 --> 00:20:33.862
  • There's no need to kill him when we can profit off of him,
  • 00:20:33.929 --> 00:20:35.464
  • When we can profit off of him, they wouldn't have sold him
  • 00:20:35.530 --> 00:20:36.265
  • They wouldn't have sold him to the ishmaelite caravan,
  • 00:20:36.331 --> 00:20:37.766
  • To the ishmaelite caravan, they would've left him for dead.
  • 00:20:37.833 --> 00:20:39.167
  • They would've left him for dead. but understand that even
  • 00:20:39.234 --> 00:20:41.370
  • But understand that even joseph's decision to
  • 00:20:41.436 --> 00:20:43.071
  • Joseph's decision to speak about his dream
  • 00:20:43.138 --> 00:20:44.373
  • Speak about his dream prematurely was part of
  • 00:20:44.439 --> 00:20:46.174
  • Prematurely was part of what god used to motivate
  • 00:20:46.241 --> 00:20:48.343
  • What god used to motivate his brothers to push him
  • 00:20:48.410 --> 00:20:49.344
  • His brothers to push him in the pit.
  • 00:20:49.411 --> 00:20:50.712
  • In the pit. at the same time
  • 00:20:50.779 --> 00:20:51.446
  • At the same time they did that,
  • 00:20:51.513 --> 00:20:52.447
  • They did that, an ishmaelite caravan
  • 00:20:52.514 --> 00:20:53.749
  • An ishmaelite caravan was setting out to bring
  • 00:20:53.815 --> 00:20:56.985
  • Was setting out to bring whoever they would pick up
  • 00:20:57.052 --> 00:20:57.919
  • Whoever they would pick up along the way back
  • 00:20:57.986 --> 00:20:59.254
  • Along the way back to the place of slavery.
  • 00:20:59.321 --> 00:21:00.489
  • To the place of slavery. now, it was
  • 00:21:00.555 --> 00:21:01.023
  • Now, it was a place of slavery
  • 00:21:01.089 --> 00:21:02.224
  • A place of slavery at that point,
  • 00:21:02.291 --> 00:21:02.891
  • At that point, but it would ultimately
  • 00:21:02.958 --> 00:21:03.825
  • But it would ultimately become a place of deliverance.
  • 00:21:03.892 --> 00:21:05.460
  • Become a place of deliverance. i'm gonna teach the bible today.
  • 00:21:05.527 --> 00:21:06.962
  • I'm gonna teach the bible today. because when joseph
  • 00:21:07.029 --> 00:21:08.030
  • Because when joseph was picked up and put
  • 00:21:08.096 --> 00:21:08.964
  • Was picked up and put in potiphar's house,
  • 00:21:09.031 --> 00:21:10.032
  • In potiphar's house, he served so well
  • 00:21:10.098 --> 00:21:11.566
  • He served so well in potiphar's house
  • 00:21:11.633 --> 00:21:12.668
  • In potiphar's house that everything potiphar
  • 00:21:12.734 --> 00:21:13.769
  • That everything potiphar put under him prospered.
  • 00:21:13.835 --> 00:21:15.704
  • Put under him prospered. and so when potiphar
  • 00:21:15.771 --> 00:21:16.705
  • And so when potiphar saw how joseph served,
  • 00:21:16.772 --> 00:21:17.906
  • Saw how joseph served, he promoted him
  • 00:21:17.973 --> 00:21:18.974
  • He promoted him to position of influence.
  • 00:21:19.041 --> 00:21:20.375
  • To position of influence. but he wouldn't have been
  • 00:21:20.442 --> 00:21:21.243
  • But he wouldn't have been in potiphar's house
  • 00:21:21.310 --> 00:21:22.110
  • In potiphar's house to begin with if he hadn't
  • 00:21:22.177 --> 00:21:23.445
  • To begin with if he hadn't been pushed in a pit.
  • 00:21:23.512 --> 00:21:24.680
  • Been pushed in a pit. and he wouldn't have
  • 00:21:24.746 --> 00:21:25.213
  • And he wouldn't have been pushed in a pit
  • 00:21:25.280 --> 00:21:26.114
  • Been pushed in a pit if he didn't wear a coat.
  • 00:21:26.181 --> 00:21:27.282
  • If he didn't wear a coat. and so when you leave
  • 00:21:27.349 --> 00:21:28.283
  • And so when you leave your coat in the closet
  • 00:21:28.350 --> 00:21:29.284
  • Your coat in the closet and downplay your dream
  • 00:21:29.351 --> 00:21:30.585
  • And downplay your dream to fit in with people
  • 00:21:30.652 --> 00:21:31.820
  • To fit in with people who don't like you
  • 00:21:31.887 --> 00:21:32.454
  • Who don't like you because you're different,
  • 00:21:32.521 --> 00:21:33.522
  • Because you're different, you can't end up
  • 00:21:33.588 --> 00:21:34.356
  • You can't end up in the position
  • 00:21:34.423 --> 00:21:34.823
  • In the position you need to be in.
  • 00:21:34.890 --> 00:21:36.158
  • You need to be in. i'm preaching to somebody
  • 00:21:36.224 --> 00:21:37.059
  • I'm preaching to somebody who's different.
  • 00:21:37.125 --> 00:21:38.960

  • 00:21:41.263 --> 00:21:42.030
  • The more different from culture you will be.
  • 00:21:42.097 --> 00:21:43.832

  • You joined us today. one of my favorite things
  • 00:21:58.046 --> 00:21:59.147
  • One of my favorite things about these sermons is
  • 00:21:59.214 --> 00:22:00.549
  • About these sermons is how i can take the word
  • 00:22:00.615 --> 00:22:02.484
  • How i can take the word and apply it immediately.
  • 00:22:02.551 --> 00:22:04.786
  • And apply it immediately. there are always connections
  • 00:22:04.853 --> 00:22:06.355
  • There are always connections that i can make
  • 00:22:06.421 --> 00:22:07.189
  • That i can make and ways that i can practically
  • 00:22:07.255 --> 00:22:09.424
  • And ways that i can practically process these teachings.
  • 00:22:09.491 --> 00:22:11.526
  • Process these teachings. i could easily listen
  • 00:22:11.593 --> 00:22:13.195
  • I could easily listen and then walk away and really
  • 00:22:13.261 --> 00:22:15.230
  • And then walk away and really not do anything with it.
  • 00:22:15.297 --> 00:22:16.565
  • Not do anything with it. but when i really do sit down
  • 00:22:16.631 --> 00:22:18.367
  • But when i really do sit down and apply this to my life,
  • 00:22:18.433 --> 00:22:20.068
  • And apply this to my life, i begin to feel a shift
  • 00:22:20.135 --> 00:22:22.104
  • I begin to feel a shift in my spirit.
  • 00:22:22.170 --> 00:22:22.871
  • In my spirit. >> yeah, and you see changes
