  • 00:02:32.160 --> 00:02:34.100
  • WE ARE DOING
  • 00:02:34.130 --> 00:02:35.290
  • HARVEST AMERICA AGAIN AT AT&T STADIUM.
  • 00:02:36.020 --> 00:02:39.260
  • THE BIG ADVENTURE BEGINS TOMORROW WITH THE EARLY
  • 00:02:39.290 --> 00:02:42.020
  • TELEVISION INTERVIEW.
  • 00:02:42.050 --> 00:02:43.120
  • THEN I AM MEETING WITH SOME YOUNG PEOPLE CALLED
  • 00:02:43.150 --> 00:02:45.130
  • THE INFLUENCERS FROM AROUND THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:02:45.160 --> 00:02:48.020
  • ALL HAVE BIG SOCIAL MEDIA FOLLOWINGS.
  • 00:02:48.050 --> 00:02:50.100
  • SO I WILL HANG OUT WITH THEM.
  • 00:02:50.130 --> 00:02:51.180
  • AT THIS POINT IN MY LIFE I WANT TO KEEP DOING WHAT
  • 00:02:51.210 --> 00:02:53.200
  • GOD HAS CALLED ME TO DO.
  • 00:02:53.230 --> 00:02:55.190
  • I ALSO WANT REALLY BE VERY INTENTIONAL ABOUT
  • 00:02:55.220 --> 00:02:58.040
  • INVESTING IN THE LIVES OF YOUNGER PEOPLE.
  • 00:02:58.070 --> 00:03:01.030
  • I KNOW THAT I BENEFITED GREATLY FROM HANGING
  • 00:03:01.060 --> 00:03:03.020
  • AROUND WITH A LOT OF GODLY PEOPLE WHEN I WAS A VERY
  • 00:03:03.050 --> 00:03:05.220
  • YOUNG MAN AND A YOUNG CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:03:05.250 --> 00:03:07.280
  • WHENEVER I DO A CRUSADE I REFLECT A LOT ON BEING
  • 00:03:08.010 --> 00:03:10.030
  • WITH BILLY GRAHAM.
  • 00:03:10.060 --> 00:03:13.160
  • WELL GOING INTO THIS EVENT I WAS VERY NERVOUS.
  • 00:03:13.190 --> 00:03:17.040
  • I HAD ANXIETY ABOUT IT.
  • 00:03:17.070 --> 00:03:19.050
  • IN FACT I BIT ALL OF MY FINGERNAILS OFF.
  • 00:03:19.080 --> 00:03:21.290
  • I WAS CONSTANTLY
  • 00:03:22.020 --> 00:03:22.140
  • [biting nails]
  • 00:03:22.170 --> 00:03:24.120
  • BUT THE THING IS YOU WORRY.
  • 00:03:24.150 --> 00:03:25.200
  • THEN YOU PRAY. THEN YOU WORRY.
  • 00:03:25.230 --> 00:03:27.010
  • THEN YOU PRAY.
  • 00:03:27.040 --> 00:03:28.010
  • AND YOU JUST KEEP COMMITTING IT TO THE LORD
  • 00:03:28.040 --> 00:03:29.150
  • OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
  • 00:03:29.180 --> 00:03:31.110
  • IT IS EXCITING TO TAKE STEPS OF FAITH.
  • 00:03:31.140 --> 00:03:33.150
  • IT IS ALSO SCARY BECAUSE THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT
  • 00:03:33.180 --> 00:03:36.170
  • YOU WILL SUCCEED. YOU COULD FAIL.
  • 00:03:36.200 --> 00:03:39.020
  • I AM THINKING WHAT IS THE WORSE THAT COULD HAPPEN.
  • 00:03:39.050 --> 00:03:40.170
  • WHAT? IT IS HALF FILLED?
  • 00:03:40.200 --> 00:03:41.180
  • IT IS A QUARTER FILLED? IT IS OVERFLOWING?
  • 00:03:41.210 --> 00:03:43.260
  • WHAT DOES IT MATTER?
  • 00:03:43.290 --> 00:03:45.110
  • LET'S JUST TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OPPORTUNITIES THAT WE
  • 00:03:45.140 --> 00:03:47.200
  • HAVE RIGHT NOW AND GET THE GOSPEL TO AS MANY
  • 00:03:47.230 --> 00:03:49.150
  • PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE.
  • 00:03:49.180 --> 00:03:51.100
  • AND IF I AM MADE TO BE A FOOL BECAUSE I OVERREACHED
  • 00:03:51.130 --> 00:03:55.190
  • OR WE BIT OFF MORE THAN WE COULD CHEW. OKAY.
  • 00:03:55.220 --> 00:03:57.270
  • SO I WAS A FOOL FOR TRYING TO REACH TOO MANY PEOPLE.
  • 00:03:58.000 --> 00:04:01.140
  • BAD ME YOU KNOW.
  • 00:04:01.170 --> 00:04:03.070
  • YOU ARE NEVER GOING TO ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING IF YOU
  • 00:04:03.100 --> 00:04:04.290
  • ARE NOT WILLING TO TAKE STEPS OF FAITH AND EVEN
  • 00:04:05.020 --> 00:04:08.090
  • BE WILLING TO FAIL.
  • 00:04:08.120 --> 00:04:12.180
  • GOOD TO BE HERE.
  • 00:04:12.210 --> 00:04:14.140
  • KIND OF HOPING A FEW MORE PEOPLE WOULD HAVE SHOWED UP.
  • 00:04:14.170 --> 00:04:16.210
  • BUT STILL THANK YOU FOR COMING.
  • 00:04:16.240 --> 00:04:20.150
  • IT IS BIG.
  • 00:04:20.180 --> 00:04:21.060
  • 00:04:21.090 --> 00:04:26.200
  • I HAD TO GROW UP FAST AS A KID BECAUSE, FOR
  • 00:04:26.230 --> 00:04:30.050
  • ALL PRACTICAL PURPOSES, I NEVER HAD A DAD AND I
  • 00:04:30.080 --> 00:04:34.190
  • REALLY DIDN'T HAVE A MOM BECAUSE SHE WAS A RAGING
  • 00:04:34.220 --> 00:04:37.250
  • ALCOHOLIC AND SHE LIKED TO GET MARRIED AND DIVORCED
  • 00:04:37.280 --> 00:04:40.150
  • AND MARRIED AND DIVORCED.
  • 00:04:40.180 --> 00:04:41.290
  • SHE ENDED UP MARRYING AND DIVORCING SEVEN TIMES.
  • 00:04:42.020 --> 00:04:45.220
  • IN BETWEEN MY MOTHER'S
  • 00:04:45.250 --> 00:04:47.040
  • FLINGS, I WAS CONCEIVED. VOILÀ.
  • 00:04:47.070 --> 00:04:52.210
  • SO I WAS RAISED IN THIS CRAZY ENVIRONMENT.
  • 00:04:52.240 --> 00:04:54.260
  • I LIVED WITH MY MOM, I'D BE SENT TO MILITARY
  • 00:04:54.290 --> 00:04:56.260
  • SCHOOL, I'D LIVE WITH MY GRANDPARENTS AND I BEGAN
  • 00:04:56.290 --> 00:05:01.110
  • SEARCHING AS A YOUNG KID.
  • 00:05:01.140 --> 00:05:03.080
  • I THOUGHT "WHAT IS THE MEANING OF MY LIFE?"
  • 00:05:03.110 --> 00:05:05.080
  • BECAUSE THERE WAS NO ONE IN MY ADULT WORLD THAT I
  • 00:05:05.110 --> 00:05:07.110
  • RESPECTED, NO ONE THAT I COULD LOOK UP TO AND I
  • 00:05:07.140 --> 00:05:10.180
  • THOUGHT, "IS THIS ALL THERE IS?"
  • 00:05:10.210 --> 00:05:12.100
  • BY THE TIME I REACHED THE RIPE OLD AGE OF 17 I FELT
  • 00:05:12.130 --> 00:05:15.210
  • LIKE I WAS 70 BECAUSE I HAD WATCHED THE COURSE MY
  • 00:05:15.240 --> 00:05:19.080
  • MOM'S LIFE HAD TAKEN AS A RECKLESS ALCOHOLIC.
  • 00:05:19.110 --> 00:05:23.230
  • I WATCHED THE COURSE MY OWN LIFE WAS TAKING AS I
  • 00:05:23.260 --> 00:05:25.290
  • HAD GOTTEN INTO DRINKING
  • 00:05:26.020 --> 00:05:27.180
  • AND PARTYING AND TAKING DRUGS.
  • 00:05:27.210 --> 00:05:30.250
  • I WAS GETTING HIGH PRETTY MUCH EVERY DAY,
  • 00:05:30.280 --> 00:05:33.220
  • TAKING LSD ON THE WEEKENDS.
  • 00:05:33.250 --> 00:05:35.100
  • MY LIFE WAS A WRECK AND I WAS GOING DOWNHILL FAST.
  • 00:05:35.130 --> 00:05:39.040
  • WELL I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL AND THERE WAS A GROUP OF
  • 00:05:39.070 --> 00:05:41.170
  • VERY OUTSPOKEN CHRISTIANS, AND MY FRIENDS EVEN WARNED
  • 00:05:41.200 --> 00:05:45.100
  • ME: "STAY AWAY FROM THE JESUS FREAKS, GREG." AND I
  • 00:05:45.130 --> 00:05:48.050
  • SAID, "YOU CAN COUNT ON ONE THING, GREG LAURIE
  • 00:05:48.080 --> 00:05:51.250
  • "WILL NEVER BECOME A JESUS FREAK."
  • 00:05:51.280 --> 00:05:55.270
  • HERE I AM OVER 45 YEARS LATER.
  • 00:05:56.000 --> 00:06:00.280
  • [applause]
  • 00:06:01.010 --> 00:06:03.020
  • AND I GUESS I'M STILL A JESUS FREAK.
  • 00:06:03.050 --> 00:06:06.090
  • I'M A BELIEVER BECAUSE CHRIST
  • 00:06:06.120 --> 00:06:08.010
  • CHANGED MY LIFE ONE DAY.
  • 00:06:08.040 --> 00:06:10.150
  • I WAS WALKING ACROSS MY HIGH SCHOOL CAMPUS.
  • 00:06:10.180 --> 00:06:12.180
  • I SAW THE CHRISTIANS SINGING THEIR SONGS ABOUT
  • 00:06:12.210 --> 00:06:15.120
  • GOD, AND BY THE WAY, THEIR MUSIC WASN'T NEARLY AS
  • 00:06:15.150 --> 00:06:17.240
  • GOOD AS CHRISTIAN MUSIC IS TODAY, AND I SAW THEM SING
  • 00:06:17.270 --> 00:06:22.020
  • THESE SONGS AND HAVING A LITTLE BIBLE STUDY AND I
  • 00:06:22.050 --> 00:06:24.270
  • THOUGHT, "THESE PEOPLE ARE SO SAD.
  • 00:06:25.000 --> 00:06:26.160
  • "THEY'RE SO PATHETIC.
  • 00:06:26.190 --> 00:06:27.230
  • "I FEEL SO SORRY FOR THEM." BUT THEN AS I LOOKED AT
  • 00:06:27.260 --> 00:06:30.030
  • THEM I THOUGHT, "BUT I HAVE TO ADMIT THEY LOOK
  • 00:06:30.060 --> 00:06:32.190
  • "SORT OF HAPPY AND THEY LOOK LIKE THEY HAVE SOME
  • 00:06:32.220 --> 00:06:34.210
  • "KIND OF PEACE." AND I TRIED A THOUGHT ON FOR
  • 00:06:34.240 --> 00:06:37.190
  • SIZE THAT I HAD NEVER CONSIDERED, WHAT IF THE
  • 00:06:37.220 --> 00:06:40.040
  • CHRISTIANS ARE RIGHT?
  • 00:06:40.070 --> 00:06:41.240
  • WELL, I QUICKLY DISMISSED IT.
  • 00:06:41.270 --> 00:06:43.030
  • THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:06:43.060 --> 00:06:44.040
  • THERE'S NO WAY THIS COULD BE RIGHT.
  • 00:06:44.070 --> 00:06:46.220
  • BUT THEN I TRIED THE THOUGHT ON AGAIN.
  • 00:06:46.250 --> 00:06:48.140
  • WHAT IF IT'S RIGHT? WHAT IF IT'S TRUE?
  • 00:06:48.170 --> 00:06:50.230
  • WHAT IF CHRIST CAN REALLY CHANGE A LIFE?
  • 00:06:50.260 --> 00:06:53.020
  • AND THEN I THOUGHT, "BUT HE CAN NEVER CHANGE ME.
  • 00:06:53.050 --> 00:06:54.180
  • "I'M TOO CYNICAL.
  • 00:06:54.210 --> 00:06:56.250
  • "I'M TOO HARD." BUT THEN A GUY GOT UP TO SPEAK AND I
  • 00:06:56.280 --> 00:07:00.050
  • DON'T REMEMBER MOST OF WHAT HE SAID BUT ONE
  • 00:07:00.080 --> 00:07:02.050
  • STATEMENT HIT HOME WITH ME.
  • 00:07:02.080 --> 00:07:04.070
  • HE SAID, "JESUS SAID, 'YOU'RE EITHER FOR ME OR
  • 00:07:04.100 --> 00:07:06.140
  • "'AGAINST ME.'" I LOOKED AROUND AT THE CHRISTIANS
  • 00:07:06.170 --> 00:07:08.270
  • AND I THOUGHT "WELL, I'M NOT ONE OF THEM.
  • 00:07:09.000 --> 00:07:10.060
  • "DOES THAT MEAN I'M AGAINST JESUS?"
  • 00:07:10.090 --> 00:07:12.220
  • SEE I ALWAYS RESPECTED JESUS.
  • 00:07:12.250 --> 00:07:15.070
  • I'D SEEN ALL OF HIS MOVIES AND I LIKED THEM, BUT
  • 00:07:15.100 --> 00:07:19.020
  • I NEVER REALLY WENT TO CHURCH.
  • 00:07:19.050 --> 00:07:20.190
  • I KNEW NOTHING ABOUT IT, AND THEN THIS GUY WHO WAS
  • 00:07:20.220 --> 00:07:23.090
  • SPEAKING SAYS, "IF YOU WANT TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN
  • 00:07:23.120 --> 00:07:25.110
  • "RIGHT NOW, I WANT YOU TO WALK FORWARD AND PRAY."
  • 00:07:25.140 --> 00:07:27.230
  • I THOUGHT, "ON MY HIGH SCHOOL CAMPUS IN
  • 00:07:27.260 --> 00:07:29.200
  • "FRONT OF OTHER KIDS?
  • 00:07:29.230 --> 00:07:30.240
  • "THERE'S NO WAY I'M GOING TO DO THAT." NEXT THING I
  • 00:07:30.270 --> 00:07:32.210
  • KNEW I WAS UP THERE PRAYING.
  • 00:07:32.240 --> 00:07:34.230
  • I DIDN'T PLAN ON IT BUT IT HAPPENED AND THAT'S GOING
  • 00:07:34.260 --> 00:07:37.110
  • TO HAPPEN FOR SOME OF YOU
  • 00:07:37.140 --> 00:07:38.280
  • RIGHT HERE IN THIS STADIUM TONIGHT.
  • 00:07:39.010 --> 00:07:40.260
  • [applause]
  • 00:07:40.290 --> 00:07:46.080
  • AND IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN TO SOME OF YOU
  • 00:07:46.110 --> 00:07:47.290
  • WATCHING ON SOCIAL MEDIA RIGHT NOW, SOME OF YOU IN
  • 00:07:48.020 --> 00:07:51.040
  • A HOST SITE, IN CHURCHES LARGE AND SMALL, IN
  • 00:07:51.070 --> 00:07:54.200
  • THEATERS, IN FRONT ROOMS.
  • 00:07:54.230 --> 00:07:57.080
  • JUST THINK ABOUT US HAVING A LITTLE CONVERSATION
  • 00:07:57.110 --> 00:08:00.030
  • TOGETHER TELLING YOU ABOUT
  • 00:08:00.060 --> 00:08:02.140
  • HOW YOUR LIFE CAN BE CHANGED.
  • 00:08:02.170 --> 00:08:04.060
  • YOU KNOW, I THINK THAT TODAY IN OUR CULTURE, WE
  • 00:08:04.090 --> 00:08:05.290
  • THINK, "IF ONLY I COULD BE RICH AND FAMOUS.
  • 00:08:06.020 --> 00:08:08.170
  • "I KNOW I WOULD BE HAPPY FOR SURE." JIM CARREY
  • 00:08:08.200 --> 00:08:11.250
  • FAMOUSLY SAID, "I THINK EVERYBODY SHOULD GET RICH
  • 00:08:11.280 --> 00:08:14.130
  • "AND FAMOUS AND DO EVERYTHING THEY EVER
  • 00:08:14.160 --> 00:08:16.200
  • "DREAMED OF, SO THEY CAN SEE IT'S NOT THE ANSWER."
  • 00:08:16.230 --> 00:08:20.230
  • LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:08:20.260 --> 00:08:21.280
  • TWO WELL-KNOWN CELEBRITIES TOOK THEIR OWN LIVES.
  • 00:08:22.010 --> 00:08:26.230
  • DESIGNER KATE SPADE AND TELEVISION PERSONALITY
  • 00:08:26.260 --> 00:08:30.200
  • ANTHONY BOURDAIN.
  • 00:08:30.230 --> 00:08:32.290
  • KATE SPADE WAS A FASHION ICON, BUT YET SHE KILLED
  • 00:08:33.020 --> 00:08:36.050
  • HERSELF BY HANGING IN HER BEAUTIFUL NEW YORK HOME.
  • 00:08:36.080 --> 00:08:40.070
  • I GUESS DESPITE ALL THOSE POSITIVE SLOGANS AND
  • 00:08:40.100 --> 00:08:43.080
  • BRIGHT COLORS AND WORK DISPLAYED SHE FOUND
  • 00:08:43.110 --> 00:08:45.250
  • HERSELF DESPONDENT AND HOPELESS AND ULTIMATELY
  • 00:08:45.280 --> 00:08:48.110
  • WILLING TO TAKE HER OWN LIFE.
  • 00:08:48.140 --> 00:08:51.030
  • AND RIGHT ON THE HEELS OF THIS IS THE SUICIDE OF
  • 00:08:51.060 --> 00:08:54.080
  • ANTHONY BOURDAIN.
  • 00:08:54.110 --> 00:08:55.260
  • HE WON TWO EMMYS, HAD A VERY SUCCESSFUL SHOW
  • 00:08:55.290 --> 00:08:59.080
  • CALLED "PARTS UNKNOWN" BUT EARLIER IN HIS LIFE
  • 00:08:59.110 --> 00:09:01.280
  • BOURDAIN GOT HEAVILY INTO DRUGS AND HE SAID,
  • 00:09:02.010 --> 00:09:07.010
  • "THE FOOD, THE LONG AND OFTEN STUPID AND
  • 00:09:07.040 --> 00:09:09.070
  • "SELF-DESTRUCTIVE SEARCH FOR THE NEXT THING WHETHER
  • 00:09:09.100 --> 00:09:11.280
  • "IT WAS SEX OR DRUGS OR SOME OTHER NEW SENSATION."
  • 00:09:12.010 --> 00:09:16.030
  • WELL HE SEARCHED. HE TRAVELED THE WORLD.
  • 00:09:16.060 --> 00:09:19.260
  • HE EXPERIENCED SO MANY THINGS THAT ARE OUT THERE
  • 00:09:19.290 --> 00:09:22.110
  • AND THERE WAS AN EMPTINESS IN HIM.
  • 00:09:22.140 --> 00:09:24.170
  • HE EVEN WAS QUOTED TO SAY,
  • 00:09:24.200 --> 00:09:26.010
  • "YOUR BODY IS NOT A TEMPLE.
  • 00:09:26.040 --> 00:09:27.230
  • "IT'S AN AMUSEMENT PARK, SO ENJOY THE RIDE." WELL IT
  • 00:09:27.260 --> 00:09:31.290
  • DOESN'T SOUND LIKE THAT RIDE TURNED OUT SO WELL.
  • 00:09:32.020 --> 00:09:34.040
  • HE TRAGICALLY TOOK HIS OWN LIFE.
  • 00:09:34.070 --> 00:09:37.000
  • YOU KNOW, ANTHONY BOURDAIN WOULD SIT DOWN AND TRY
  • 00:09:37.030 --> 00:09:39.270
  • MEALS IN EXOTIC PLACES WITH DIFFERENT PEOPLE AND
  • 00:09:40.000 --> 00:09:42.170
  • HE WOULD ASK THEM ALL THIS QUESTION:
  • 00:09:42.200 --> 00:09:44.120
  • WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?
  • 00:09:44.150 --> 00:09:46.190
  • AND THEY WOULD GIVE THEIR ANSWERS, BUT APPARENTLY
  • 00:09:46.220 --> 00:09:49.060
  • HE NEVER FOUND THAT HAPPINESS.
  • 00:09:49.090 --> 00:09:51.140
  • LAST YEAR, CHRIS CORNELL FRONT MAN FOR SOUNDGARDEN
  • 00:09:51.170 --> 00:09:55.090
  • TOOK HIS OWN LIFE.
  • 00:09:55.120 --> 00:09:56.290
  • THE FRONT MAN OF A VERY SUCCESSFUL BAND AT THE TOP
  • 00:09:57.020 --> 00:09:59.090
  • OF HIS GAME ON THE HEELS OF THAT, CHESTER

  • CHRIS ALSO COMMITTED SUICIDE ON THE BIRTHDAY
  • 00:10:05.120 --> 00:10:09.260
  • OF HIS FRIEND BY HANGING HIMSELF.
  • 00:10:09.290 --> 00:10:12.210
  • DID YOU KNOW THAT SUICIDE RATES IN AMERICA ARE UP
  • 00:10:12.240 --> 00:10:15.100
  • 25% RIGHT NOW?
  • 00:10:15.130 --> 00:10:18.040
  • 45.000 AMERICANS TOOK THEIR LIVES LAST YEAR.
  • 00:10:18.070 --> 00:10:22.230
  • THOUGH ANTIDEPRESSANT USE IS UP, IT DOESN'T
  • 00:10:22.260 --> 00:10:25.110
  • SEEM TO BE HELPING.
  • 00:10:25.140 --> 00:10:27.110
  • I WATCHED AN EXPERT ON TELEVISION THE OTHER NIGHT
  • 00:10:27.140 --> 00:10:29.270
  • AND HE HIMSELF HAD SUICIDAL TENDENCIES AND
  • 00:10:30.000 --> 00:10:33.260
  • WANTED TO FIND SOME ANSWERS, SO HE TRAVELED
  • 00:10:33.290 --> 00:10:35.220
  • THE WORLD INTERVIEWING PEOPLE THAT COULD HELP
  • 00:10:35.250 --> 00:10:38.190
  • HIM WHO WERE EXPERTS ON THIS SUBJECT.
  • 00:10:38.220 --> 00:10:41.020
  • HERE ARE THE CONCLUSIONS HE CAME UP WITH.
  • 00:10:41.050 --> 00:10:43.080
  • HE SAID, "WE HAVE NATURAL PHYSICAL NEEDS.
  • 00:10:43.110 --> 00:10:45.200
  • "WE NEED FOOD, WATER, SHELTER."
  • 00:10:45.230 --> 00:10:48.110
  • HE SAYS, "IF YOU TAKE THESE AWAY WE'RE IN
  • 00:10:48.140 --> 00:10:49.260
  • "TROUBLE REALLY FAST," AND THEN HE SAYS, "THERE'S
  • 00:10:49.290 --> 00:10:52.110
  • "EQUALLY STRONG EVIDENCE THAT PEOPLE HAVE VERY
  • 00:10:52.140 --> 00:10:54.270
  • "STRONG PSYCHOLOGICAL NEEDS." HE SAYS,
  • 00:10:55.000 --> 00:10:58.080
  • "PEOPLE NEED TO FEEL THEY BELONG.
  • 00:10:58.110 --> 00:11:00.110
  • "THEY NEED TO FEEL THAT

  • "THEIR LIFE HAS MEANING AND PURPOSE.
  • 00:11:01.120 --> 00:11:03.140
  • "THEY NEED TO FEEL THAT PEOPLE SEE AND VALUE THEM,"
  • 00:11:03.170 --> 00:11:06.090
  • AND HE SAYS FINALLY, "PEOPLE NEED TO
  • 00:11:06.120 --> 00:11:08.030
  • "HAVE A FUTURE THAT MAKES SENSE." LISTEN.
  • 00:11:08.060 --> 00:11:10.210

  • 00:14:22.100 --> 00:14:24.190
  • FOR ME IT IS NOT. IT IS...

  • THE CHURCH HAS BEEN CALLED TO PREACH THE GOSPEL.

  • BUT BY AND LARGE I DON'T THINK WE ARE DOING A
  • 00:14:37.160 --> 00:14:39.080
  • VERY GOOD JOB OF THIS.
  • 00:14:39.110 --> 00:14:40.250
  • WE NEED TO GET ON WITH IT AND REALIZE THAT THE
  • 00:14:40.280 --> 00:14:43.040
  • SECRET WEAPONS THAT GOD HAS GIVEN TO THE CHURCH
  • 00:14:43.070 --> 00:14:46.000
  • ARE PRAY AND PREACH. PRAY FOR OUR NATION.
  • 00:14:46.030 --> 00:14:50.030
  • PRAY FOR A REVIVAL.
  • 00:14:50.060 --> 00:14:51.140
  • AND THEN GO AND PREACH THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:14:51.170 --> 00:14:55.250
  • THE BIBLE SAYS IF YOU OFFEND IN ONE POINT OF
  • 00:14:55.280 --> 00:14:57.240
  • THE LAW YOU'RE GUILTY OF ALL OF IT.
  • 00:14:57.270 --> 00:15:01.000
  • SO YOU MIGHT SAY, "WELL, I'M NOT THAT BAD.
  • 00:15:01.030 --> 00:15:02.220
  • I'M NOT AS BAD AS THAT GUY OVER THERE." YEAH, BUT
  • 00:15:02.250 --> 00:15:04.190
  • GOD DOESN'T GRADE ON THE CURVE.
  • 00:15:04.220 --> 00:15:08.250
  • HAVE YOU EVER HATED ANYBODY?
  • 00:15:08.280 --> 00:15:10.120
  • LET ME RESTATE THE QUESTION.
  • 00:15:10.150 --> 00:15:11.230
  • HAVE YOU EVER DRIVEN ON THE FREEWAY?
  • 00:15:11.260 --> 00:15:14.030
  • [laughter]
  • 00:15:14.060 --> 00:15:17.040

  • "WITH LUST IN YOUR HEART, IT'S THE SAME THING."
  • 00:15:25.070 --> 00:15:28.150
  • WE'VE BROKEN THESE COMMANDMENTS.
  • 00:15:28.180 --> 00:15:30.200
  • WE'VE FALLEN SHORT. ADMIT YOU ARE A SINNER.
  • 00:15:30.230 --> 00:15:33.200
  • YOU'RE NOT AS GOOD AS YOU THINK YOU ARE.
  • 00:15:33.230 --> 00:15:36.250
  • REALIZE THAT JESUS CHRIST DIED ON THE CROSS FOR YOU.
  • 00:15:36.280 --> 00:15:40.140
  • YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES PEOPLE WILL ASK, WHY ARE YOU
  • 00:15:40.170 --> 00:15:42.290
  • CHRISTIANS SO OBSESSED WITH THE CROSS?
  • 00:15:43.020 --> 00:15:45.210
  • YOU'RE ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT THE CROSS.
  • 00:15:45.240 --> 00:15:47.250
  • JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS.
  • 00:15:47.280 --> 00:15:49.180
  • HE SHED HIS BLOOD ON THE CROSS.
  • 00:15:49.210 --> 00:15:51.110
  • THE CROSS THIS, THE BLOOD THAT.
  • 00:15:51.140 --> 00:15:53.220
  • YOU GUYS ARE FREAKS,
  • 00:15:53.250 --> 00:15:54.200
  • MAN. WHY DO YOU OBSESS ON THAT?
  • 00:15:54.230 --> 00:15:56.050
  • I'LL TELL YOU WHY.
  • 00:15:56.080 --> 00:15:57.280
  • BECAUSE HE DIED IN MY PLACE BECAUSE I WAS
  • 00:15:58.010 --> 00:16:00.210
  • SEPARATED FROM GOD BY MY SIN.
  • 00:16:00.240 --> 00:16:03.010
  • AND GOD'S RIGHTEOUS DEMANDS NEEDED TO BE
  • 00:16:03.040 --> 00:16:06.090
  • SATISFIED, SO JESUS STEPPED IN THE GAP FOR ME.
  • 00:16:06.120 --> 00:16:10.130
  • JESUS WHO WAS FULLY GOD AND FULLY MAN WAS UNIQUELY
  • 00:16:10.160 --> 00:16:13.230
  • QUALIFIED TO DO THIS, AND WITH ONE HAND HE TOOK HOLD
  • 00:16:13.260 --> 00:16:16.210
  • OF A HOLY FATHER AND WITH THE OTHER HAND HE
  • 00:16:16.240 --> 00:16:20.110
  • TOOK HOLD OF SINFUL HUMANITY AND SPIKES WERE
  • 00:16:20.140 --> 00:16:22.290
  • DRIVEN THROUGH THOSE HANDS AND HE DIED FOR ME.
  • 00:16:23.020 --> 00:16:25.190
  • HE DIED FOR YOU, AND HE SHED HIS BLOOD FOR YOU AND
  • 00:16:25.220 --> 00:16:28.290
  • HE WILL FORGIVE YOU TONIGHT IF YOU'LL TURN
  • 00:16:29.020 --> 00:16:31.130
  • FROM YOUR SIN AND FOLLOW HIM.
  • 00:16:31.160 --> 00:16:32.250
  • [applause]
  • 00:16:32.280 --> 00:16:39.280
  • I LOVE HOW THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID

  • LISTEN, HE DID IT FOR YOU. HE LOVES YOU.
  • 00:16:44.200 --> 00:16:48.200
  • THE BIBLE SAYS, "GODLY SORROW PRODUCES REPENTANCE."
  • 00:16:48.230 --> 00:16:53.130
  • THE WORD "REPENT" IS AN INTERESTING WORD.
  • 00:16:53.160 --> 00:16:55.050
  • IT'S A MILITARY TERM.
  • 00:16:55.080 --> 00:16:56.160
  • IT' MEANS "ABOUT FACE".
  • 00:16:56.190 --> 00:16:58.190
  • WHEN I WENT TO MILITARY
  • 00:16:58.220 --> 00:16:59.140
  • SCHOOL I LEARNED WHAT THAT MEANT.
  • 00:16:59.170 --> 00:17:02.000
  • YOU THAT HAVE SERVED IN OUR MILITARY, AND THANK
  • 00:17:02.030 --> 00:17:04.160

  • [applause]
  • 00:17:06.270 --> 00:17:13.280
  • SO TO REPENT MEANS TO CHANGE YOUR DIRECTION.
  • 00:17:14.010 --> 00:17:16.040
  • IT DOESN'T MEAN TO JUST
  • 00:17:16.070 --> 00:17:17.040
  • BE SORRY FOR WHAT YOU'VE DONE.
  • 00:17:17.070 --> 00:17:18.280
  • IT MEANS TO BE SORRY ENOUGH TO STOP.
  • 00:17:19.010 --> 00:17:21.050
  • SO I'M WALKING AWAY FROM GOD, NOW I'M GOING TO TURN
  • 00:17:21.080 --> 00:17:23.070
  • AROUND AND ABOUT FACE, AND
  • 00:17:23.100 --> 00:17:25.220
  • I'M GOING TO WALK TOWARD GOD.
  • 00:17:25.250 --> 00:17:26.280
  • I'M GOING TO HANG A U-TURN IN THE ROAD OF LIFE.
  • 00:17:27.010 --> 00:17:29.180
  • "REPENT," THE BIBLE SAYS, "REPENT AND BE CONVERTED
  • 00:17:29.210 --> 00:17:32.290
  • "AND TIMES OF REFRESHMENT WILL COME FROM THE
  • 00:17:33.020 --> 00:17:35.030
  • "PRESENCE OF THE LORD." THE FIRST WORD THAT JESUS SAID
  • 00:17:35.060 --> 00:17:38.170
  • WHEN HE BEGAN HIS PUBLIC MINISTRY WAS "REPENT, THE
  • 00:17:38.200 --> 00:17:41.140
  • "KINGDOM OF GOD IS NEAR." SO YOU HAVE TO TURN FROM
  • 00:17:41.170 --> 00:17:44.040
  • YOUR SIN, AND THEN YOU MUST RECEIVE
  • 00:17:44.070 --> 00:17:47.100
  • CHRIST INTO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:17:47.130 --> 00:17:49.260
  • BEING A CHRISTIAN IS NOT JUST FOLLOWING A CREED,
  • 00:17:49.290 --> 00:17:52.180
  • IT'S NOT JUST READING A BIBLE; BEING A CHRISTIAN
  • 00:17:52.210 --> 00:17:57.020
  • IS HAVING CHRIST HIMSELF COME AND
  • 00:17:57.050 --> 00:17:58.270
  • TAKE RESIDENCE IN YOUR HEART.
  • 00:17:59.000 --> 00:18:00.290
  • THE BIBLE SAYS, "FOR AS MANY AS RECEIVED HIM, HE
  • 00:18:01.020 --> 00:18:03.280
  • "GAVE THEM THE POWER TO BECOME SONS AND DAUGHTERS
  • 00:18:04.010 --> 00:18:07.010
  • "OF GOD." SO THERE HAS TO BE THAT MOMENT WHERE YOU
  • 00:18:07.040 --> 00:18:09.280
  • SAY, "ALL RIGHT, LORD. I WANT YOU IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:18:10.010 --> 00:18:13.290
  • "I WANT YOU TO FORGIVE ME OF MY SIN." AND HE'LL
  • 00:18:14.020 --> 00:18:17.110
  • DO THAT FOR YOU.
  • 00:18:17.140 --> 00:18:18.160
  • HE'S JUST A PRAYER AWAY.
  • 00:18:18.190 --> 00:18:20.160
  • AND THEN YOU MUST DO IT PUBLICLY.
  • 00:18:20.190 --> 00:18:22.270
  • THAT'S WHY IN A FEW MOMENTS I'M GOING TO ASK
  • 00:18:23.000 --> 00:18:24.220
  • YOU THAT WANT JESUS CHRIST TO COME INTO YOUR
  • 00:18:24.250 --> 00:18:27.080
  • LIFE AND YOU WANT HIM TO FORGIVE YOU OF YOUR SIN,
  • 00:18:27.110 --> 00:18:30.190
  • I'M GOING TO ASK YOU TO GET UP OUT OF YOUR SEAT
  • 00:18:30.220 --> 00:18:32.250
  • AND COME DOWN HERE ON THE FIELD AT AT&T STADIUM.
  • 00:18:32.280 --> 00:18:36.220
  • AND THEN WHEN YOU ALL GET DOWN HERE, I'M GOING TO
  • 00:18:36.250 --> 00:18:38.080
  • LEAD YOU IN A PRAYER OF COMMITMENT TO CHRIST.
  • 00:18:38.110 --> 00:18:42.060
  • "BUT WHY DO IT PUBLICLY?"
  • 00:18:42.090 --> 00:18:43.090
  • YOU SAY. "GREG, IT'S A
  • 00:18:43.120 --> 00:18:44.180
  • LONG WAYS DOWN FROM THESE TOP STANDS.
  • 00:18:44.210 --> 00:18:47.040
  • I'D RATHER JUST DO IT IN MY SEAT." WELL YOU CAN DO
  • 00:18:47.070 --> 00:18:49.020
  • THAT, BUT HERE'S WHY I ASK YOU TO COME PUBLICLY.
  • 00:18:49.050 --> 00:18:51.240
  • JESUS SAID, "IF YOU WILL ACKNOWLEDGE ME BEFORE
  • 00:18:51.270 --> 00:18:53.290
  • "PEOPLE, I WILL ACKNOWLEDGE YOU BEFORE MY FATHER AND
  • 00:18:54.020 --> 00:18:57.000
  • "THE ANGELS IN HEAVEN." BUT THEN HE ADDS, "IF YOU DENY
  • 00:18:57.030 --> 00:18:59.240
  • "ME BEFORE PEOPLE I WILL DENY YOU BEFORE THE FATHER
  • 00:18:59.270 --> 00:19:02.250
  • "AND THE ANGELS." I'M GOING TO ASK YOU TO MAKE A
  • 00:19:02.280 --> 00:19:05.040
  • PUBLIC STAND TO FOLLOW JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:19:05.070 --> 00:19:09.140
  • YOU'LL BE GLAD THAT YOU DID.
  • 00:19:09.170 --> 00:19:10.130
  • [applause]
  • 00:19:10.160 --> 00:19:13.190
  • LASTLY, YOU MUST DO IT NOW. DO IT NOW.
  • 00:19:13.220 --> 00:19:18.160
  • AS I ALREADY SAID, THE BIBLE SAYS, "TODAY IS THE
  • 00:19:18.190 --> 00:19:21.200
  • "DAY OF SALVATION." THE DEVIL WHISPERS IN YOUR EAR
  • 00:19:21.230 --> 00:19:27.170
  • "TOMORROW. LATER. NOT NOW."
  • 00:19:27.200 --> 00:19:31.290
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT WHISPERS IN YOUR EAR,
  • 00:19:32.020 --> 00:19:35.180
  • "COME NOW. TODAY. TONIGHT. HERE."

  • OH, I KNOW. I KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE.
  • 00:19:40.220 --> 00:19:44.020
  • WHAT AM I GETTING MYSELF INTO?
  • 00:19:44.050 --> 00:19:46.160
  • IT'S NOT WHAT YOU'RE GETTING YOURSELF INTO.
  • 00:19:46.190 --> 00:19:48.140
  • IT'S WHO'S GETTING HIMSELF INTO YOU; JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:19:48.170 --> 00:19:51.040
  • TAKING RESIDENCE IN YOUR HEART.
  • 00:19:51.070 --> 00:19:54.120
  • YOU'LL NEVER BE ALONE IN LIFE AGAIN, AND YOU'LL
  • 00:19:54.150 --> 00:19:56.200
  • KNOW THAT YOU'LL GO TO HEAVEN WHEN YOU DIE.
  • 00:19:56.230 --> 00:19:58.260
  • THAT IS AMAZING. THAT'S THE GOOD NEWS
  • 00:19:58.290 --> 00:20:01.170

  • (Greg Laurie) OBVIOUSLY THERE ARE A
  • 00:20:18.160 --> 00:20:19.160
  • LOT OF CHRISTIANS HERE. THIS IS EVANGELISTIC.
  • 00:20:19.190 --> 00:20:22.230
  • WHAT I ALWAYS TRY TO DO WHEN I USE PHRASES AND
  • 00:20:22.260 --> 00:20:25.200
  • THINGS IS REMEMBER THE NONBELIEVERS I AM
  • 00:20:25.230 --> 00:20:28.060

  • TRYING TO BUILD A BRIDGE TO THEM.
  • 00:20:36.200 --> 00:20:38.160
  • AND THEN YOU KNOW LEAD THEM TO CHRIST HOPEFULLY.
  • 00:20:38.190 --> 00:20:41.070
  • WE JUST NEED GOD'S POWER NOW.
  • 00:20:41.100 --> 00:20:42.210
  • WE CAN'T DO THIS ON OUR OWN.
  • 00:20:42.240 --> 00:20:44.130
  • WE CAN
  • 00:20:44.160 --> 00:20:45.220
  • WE CAN PLAY OUR INSTRUMENTS AND
  • 00:20:45.250 --> 00:20:47.020
  • PREACH OUR SERMONS.
  • 00:20:47.050 --> 00:20:48.030
  • BUT IF WE WANT THEM TO RESONATE WE NEED
  • 00:20:48.060 --> 00:20:49.250
  • THE POWER OF GOD.
  • 00:20:49.280 --> 00:20:51.070
  • MY JOB IS NOT TO ISOLATE.
  • 00:20:51.100 --> 00:20:53.010
