  • Announcer: NEXT! PASTORS JOHN AND DEBBIE LINDELL
  • 00:00:06.180 --> 00:00:08.240
  • SHARE THEIR PERSONAL DISCOVERY
  • 00:00:08.270 --> 00:00:10.240
  • OF THE TRUE MEANING BEHIND GOD'S GRACE.
  • 00:00:10.270 --> 00:00:13.230
  • - BECAUSE WHEN YOU'VE GOT A RULES-BASED CHRISTIANITY GOING ON
  • 00:00:13.260 --> 00:00:16.110
  • YOU'RE DOING RULES,
  • 00:00:16.140 --> 00:00:19.220
  • YOU'RE DOING THINGS
  • 00:00:19.250 --> 00:00:21.220
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE TRYING TO PLEASE GOD.
  • 00:00:21.250 --> 00:00:25.170
  • AND THERE IS A FAILURE THEN TO REALIZE, ON YOUR PART,
  • 00:00:25.200 --> 00:00:28.200
  • THAT YOU'RE ALREADY PLEASING; JESUS DID ALL THAT.
  • 00:00:28.230 --> 00:00:31.090
  • NOTHING I DO IS GOING TO ADD TO HIS PLEASURE IN ME.
  • 00:00:31.120 --> 00:00:35.280
  • 00:00:41.050 --> 00:00:47.100
  • Randy: WELCOME TO LIFE TODAY .
  • 00:00:54.240 --> 00:00:57.240
  • I'M RANDY ROBISON.
  • 00:00:57.240 --> 00:00:58.290
  • THIS IS SHEILA WALSH.
  • 00:00:58.290 --> 00:01:00.080
  • Sheila: HEY!
  • 00:01:00.080 --> 00:01:01.180
  • Randy: WE TALK A LOT
  • 00:01:01.180 --> 00:01:02.220
  • BUT I'VE GOT TO TELL YOU
  • 00:01:04.170 --> 00:01:05.180
  • THERE IS A DIFFERENCE
  • 00:01:05.180 --> 00:01:06.210
  • BETWEEN TALKING ABOUT IT
  • 00:01:06.210 --> 00:01:08.130
  • AND REALLY GETTING IT.
  • 00:01:08.130 --> 00:01:11.060
  • THAT'S WHY I'M EXCITED
  • 00:01:11.060 --> 00:01:12.100
  • ABOUT OUR GUEST TODAY, SHEILA.
  • 00:01:12.100 --> 00:01:13.130
  • YOU KNOW THIS COUPLE HERE.
  • 00:01:13.130 --> 00:01:15.010
  • Sheila: I LOVE THEM!
  • 00:01:15.010 --> 00:01:16.050
  • I LOVE THEIR CHURCH,
  • 00:01:16.050 --> 00:01:17.080
  • JAMES RIVER CHURCH.
  • 00:01:17.080 --> 00:01:18.130
  • I LOVE THE WAY
  • 00:01:18.130 --> 00:01:19.200
  • THAT GOD HAS WORKED
  • 00:01:19.200 --> 00:01:20.280
  • IN BOTH OF THEIR LIVES.
  • 00:01:20.280 --> 00:01:22.050
  • BUT I'M VERY EXCITED
  • 00:01:22.050 --> 00:01:23.130
  • ABOUT JOHN'S NEW BOOK.
  • 00:01:23.130 --> 00:01:24.250
  • SO WOULD YOU PLEASE HELP US
  • 00:01:24.250 --> 00:01:26.030
  • WELCOME JOHN
  • 00:01:26.030 --> 00:01:27.110
  • AND DEBBIE LINDELL?
  • 00:01:27.110 --> 00:01:28.180
  • WELCOME!
  • 00:01:28.180 --> 00:01:29.220
  • John: THANK YOU!
  • 00:01:31.120 --> 00:01:34.120
  • Randy: LOVE THE COVER,
  • 00:01:34.120 --> 00:01:35.210
  • I MENTIONED THAT TO YOU.
  • 00:01:35.210 --> 00:01:36.250
  • YOU JUST LOOK GOOD.
  • 00:01:36.250 --> 00:01:38.090
  • Debbie: HE DOES!
  • 00:01:38.090 --> 00:01:41.070
  • I LOVE THE COVER!
  • 00:01:41.230 --> 00:01:44.230
  • Randy: BUT THIS MESSAGE,
  • 00:01:44.230 --> 00:01:46.170
  • I HAD THE PRIVILEGE
  • 00:01:46.170 --> 00:01:47.230
  • OF SITTING DOWN WITH YOU GUYS
  • 00:01:47.230 --> 00:01:48.270
  • AND GETTING TO HEAR
  • 00:01:48.290 --> 00:01:51.290
  • WHAT YOU WENT THROUGH
  • 00:01:51.290 --> 00:01:53.230
  • AS A PASTOR
  • 00:01:53.230 --> 00:01:55.000
  • WHO HAD PREACHED ABOUT GRACE
  • 00:01:55.000 --> 00:01:56.230
  • AND TAUGHT IT
  • 00:01:56.230 --> 00:01:58.040
  • AND UNDERSTOOD IT
  • 00:01:58.040 --> 00:01:59.170
  • BUT THEN SOMETHING HAPPENED.
  • 00:01:59.170 --> 00:02:02.170
  • GIVE US AN IDEA
  • 00:02:02.170 --> 00:02:04.100
  • OF WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:02:04.100 --> 00:02:05.190
  • IN THIS BOOK.
  • 00:02:05.190 --> 00:02:06.270
  • John: I THINK
  • 00:02:06.270 --> 00:02:08.030
  • I WAS LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:02:08.030 --> 00:02:09.130
  • WHO THINK THAT
  • 00:02:09.130 --> 00:02:10.190
  • BECAUSE THEY CAN GIVE
  • 00:02:10.190 --> 00:02:11.270
  • THEY UNDERSTAND GRACE.
  • 00:02:13.060 --> 00:02:14.070
  • OR THAT THEY'RE WALKING
  • 00:02:14.070 --> 00:02:15.150
  • IN GRACE,
  • 00:02:15.150 --> 00:02:16.210
  • THEY'RE LIVING IN GRACE.
  • 00:02:16.210 --> 00:02:17.280
  • SO REALLY, SEVERAL YEARS BACK
  • 00:02:17.280 --> 00:02:19.080
  • THAT I DID NOT GRASP
  • 00:02:20.210 --> 00:02:22.100
  • THE ENORMITY OR THE MAGNITUDE
  • 00:02:22.100 --> 00:02:24.250
  • OF GOD'S GRACE
  • 00:02:24.250 --> 00:02:26.100
  • AND I COULD TELL IT
  • 00:02:26.100 --> 00:02:27.190
  • IN MY OWN LIFE.
  • 00:02:27.190 --> 00:02:29.020
  • I COULD SENSE IT.
  • 00:02:29.020 --> 00:02:30.120
  • PART OF IT WAS JUST
  • 00:02:30.120 --> 00:02:31.230
  • UNDERSTANDING GOD'S PLEASURE,
  • 00:02:31.230 --> 00:02:34.010
  • NOT FEELING THAT,
  • 00:02:34.010 --> 00:02:36.150
  • AND WATCHING DEBBIE
  • 00:02:36.230 --> 00:02:39.230
  • IN HER WALK -- BECAUSE
  • 00:02:39.230 --> 00:02:41.060
  • I'M A VERY DISCIPLINED PERSON
  • 00:02:41.060 --> 00:02:43.120
  • BUT THE DISCIPLINE
  • 00:02:43.120 --> 00:02:44.290
  • BEGAN TO WORK AGAINST ME,
  • 00:02:44.290 --> 00:02:46.180
  • IN SOME SENSE,
  • 00:02:46.180 --> 00:02:47.250
  • AND I'D WATCH HER
  • 00:02:47.250 --> 00:02:49.010
  • AND SHE WAS HAVING
  • 00:02:49.010 --> 00:02:50.130
  • A LOT BETTER TIME
  • 00:02:50.130 --> 00:02:51.180
  • DOING THIS THING
  • 00:02:51.180 --> 00:02:52.240
  • CALLED CHRISTIANITY.
  • 00:02:52.240 --> 00:02:53.290
  • AND I WAS DOING WAY MORE --
  • 00:02:53.290 --> 00:02:55.050
  • HONESTLY.
  • 00:02:55.050 --> 00:02:56.130
  • Debbie: I KNOW!
  • 00:02:56.130 --> 00:02:57.150
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:02:57.150 --> 00:02:58.230
  • Sheila: WHAT DO YOU THINK
  • 00:02:58.230 --> 00:03:00.030
  • MADE THE SWITCH BECAUSE
  • 00:03:00.030 --> 00:03:01.120
  • I WAS ONE OF THE PEOPLE
  • 00:03:01.120 --> 00:03:02.160
  • THAT WAS PRIVILEGED
  • 00:03:02.160 --> 00:03:03.200
  • TO GET AN EARLY COPY
  • 00:03:03.200 --> 00:03:04.260
  • OF THE MANUSCRIPT TO READ
  • 00:03:04.260 --> 00:03:06.010
  • AND WHEN I SAW THE TITLE,
  • 00:03:06.010 --> 00:03:07.070
  • SOUL SET FREE
  • 00:03:07.070 --> 00:03:08.200
  • IT JUST MADE ME THINK,
  • 00:03:08.200 --> 00:03:10.130
  • THIS IS SOMETHING
  • 00:03:10.130 --> 00:03:11.250
  • REALLY SPECIAL.
  • 00:03:11.250 --> 00:03:13.020
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE LOVED
  • 00:03:13.020 --> 00:03:14.080
  • ACROSS THE NATION
  • 00:03:14.080 --> 00:03:15.130
  • AND ACROSS THE WORLD
  • 00:03:15.130 --> 00:03:16.170
  • AS A PASTOR.
  • 00:03:16.170 --> 00:03:17.240
  • YOU HAVE BEEN
  • 00:03:17.240 --> 00:03:18.280
  • AN ANOINTED TEACHER
  • 00:03:18.280 --> 00:03:20.050
  • FOR SO LONG
  • 00:03:20.050 --> 00:03:21.130
  • BUT THERE WAS SOMETHING
  • 00:03:21.130 --> 00:03:22.180
  • THAT CLICKED IN YOU
  • 00:03:22.180 --> 00:03:23.240
  • THAT WAS NEW AND FRESH.
  • 00:03:23.240 --> 00:03:25.010
  • CAN YOU TRACE IT TO A MOMENT
  • 00:03:25.010 --> 00:03:26.070
  • OR WAS IT JUST
  • 00:03:26.070 --> 00:03:27.130
  • A SLOW UNWRAPPING?
  • 00:03:27.130 --> 00:03:28.250
  • John: I THINK IT STARTED
  • 00:03:28.250 --> 00:03:30.120
  • WHEN I WAS TAKING
  • 00:03:30.120 --> 00:03:31.240
  • MY KIDS TO MEXICO.
  • 00:03:31.240 --> 00:03:33.020
  • THE BOYS HAD
  • 00:03:33.020 --> 00:03:34.060
  • JUST GOTTEN MARRIED
  • 00:03:34.060 --> 00:03:35.150
  • AND ONE OF THEM WAS READING,
  • 00:03:35.150 --> 00:03:36.230
  • JOHNNY CASH HAD JUST
  • 00:03:36.230 --> 00:03:38.020
  • RECENTLY PASSED AWAY,
  • 00:03:38.020 --> 00:03:39.110
  • AND THEY WERE READING
  • 00:03:39.110 --> 00:03:40.160
  • THAT BIOGRAPHY.
  • 00:03:40.160 --> 00:03:41.210
  • AND AS I READ
  • 00:03:41.210 --> 00:03:43.000
  • THE STORY OF JOHNNY CASH,
  • 00:03:43.000 --> 00:03:44.070
  • AND I DIDN'T KNOW
  • 00:03:44.070 --> 00:03:45.150
  • EVERYTHING ABOUT IT,
  • 00:03:45.150 --> 00:03:46.210
  • BUT HIS LIFE HAD
  • 00:03:46.210 --> 00:03:48.000
  • A LOT OF UPS AND DOWNS
  • 00:03:48.000 --> 00:03:49.090
  • BUT YOU HAD TO CONCLUDE THIS,
  • 00:03:49.090 --> 00:03:50.200
  • HE WAS A MAN WHO LOVED GOD
  • 00:03:50.200 --> 00:03:52.090
  • AND GOD LOVED HIM
  • 00:03:52.090 --> 00:03:54.020
  • AND HE FINISHED WELL.
  • 00:03:54.020 --> 00:03:56.060
  • BUT IT STARTED ME
  • 00:03:56.060 --> 00:03:57.200
  • THAT WHATEVER GOD'S GRACE IS
  • 00:03:59.000 --> 00:04:00.120
  • IT IS A WHOLE LOT BROADER
  • 00:04:00.120 --> 00:04:02.070
  • THAN I HAD THOUGHT
  • 00:04:02.070 --> 00:04:03.280
  • SO THAT BEGAN TO DISTURB ME
  • 00:04:07.060 --> 00:04:10.060
  • A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:04:10.060 --> 00:04:11.160
  • BECAUSE I HAD PREACHED
  • 00:04:11.160 --> 00:04:12.290
  • A MUCH NARROWER VIEW
  • 00:04:12.290 --> 00:04:14.080
  • OF GOD'S GRACE.
  • 00:04:14.080 --> 00:04:15.160
  • Randy: LET ME ASK YOU.
  • 00:04:15.160 --> 00:04:16.240
  • WHAT WAS THAT NARROW VIEW?
  • 00:04:16.240 --> 00:04:18.040
  • WHAT DID YOU THINK IT WAS?
  • 00:04:18.040 --> 00:04:19.110
  • John: I WOULD SAY THIS.
  • 00:04:19.110 --> 00:04:20.280
  • THAT ESSENTIALLY,
  • 00:04:20.280 --> 00:04:22.160
  • THE TOOLS OF DISCIPLESHIP
  • 00:04:22.160 --> 00:04:25.090
  • BECAME THE RULES
  • 00:04:25.090 --> 00:04:26.240
  • OF DISCIPLESHIP.
  • 00:04:26.240 --> 00:04:28.000
  • SO THAT THE THINGS
  • 00:04:28.000 --> 00:04:29.060
  • YOU WOULD DO TO TRY
  • 00:04:29.060 --> 00:04:30.170
  • TO GROW CLOSE TO CHRIST
  • 00:04:30.170 --> 00:04:31.260
  • BECAME RULES YOU HAD TO KEEP
  • 00:04:31.260 --> 00:04:33.080
  • IN ORDER TO BE CLOSE
  • 00:04:33.080 --> 00:04:34.230
  • TO CHRIST.
  • 00:04:34.230 --> 00:04:35.270
  • AS A PASTOR, I LOOK BACK
  • 00:04:35.270 --> 00:04:37.250
  • AND IF I COULD TAKE BACK
  • 00:04:37.250 --> 00:04:39.070
  • 20 YEARS OF MY PREACHING
  • 00:04:39.070 --> 00:04:41.140
  • I WOULD.
  • 00:04:42.270 --> 00:04:45.270
  • BECAUSE YOU CAN TELL
  • 00:04:45.270 --> 00:04:47.110
  • IT'S VERY RAW TO ME
  • 00:04:47.270 --> 00:04:50.270
  • THAT I LOOK AT IT AND I SAY,
  • 00:04:50.270 --> 00:04:53.150
  • TO PUT THAT BURDEN ON PEOPLE?
  • 00:04:53.150 --> 00:04:56.150
  • BECAUSE INVARIABLY
  • 00:04:56.150 --> 00:04:58.020
  • WHEN THAT HAPPENS
  • 00:04:58.020 --> 00:04:59.170
  • IN A PERSON'S LIFE
  • 00:04:59.170 --> 00:05:01.020
  • THEN YOU BECOME COMPETITIVE,
  • 00:05:01.020 --> 00:05:02.210
  • YOU BECOME CRITICAL.
  • 00:05:02.210 --> 00:05:04.120
  • BECAUSE WHEN YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:05:04.120 --> 00:05:05.240
  • A RULES-BASED CHRISTIANITY
  • 00:05:05.240 --> 00:05:07.070
  • GOING ON
  • 00:05:07.070 --> 00:05:08.190
  • YOU'RE DOING RULES,
  • 00:05:08.190 --> 00:05:10.190
  • YOU'RE DOING THINGS BECAUSE
  • 00:05:10.190 --> 00:05:13.080
  • YOU'RE TRYING TO PLEASE GOD.
  • 00:05:14.010 --> 00:05:17.010
  • AND THERE IS A FAILURE THEN
  • 00:05:17.010 --> 00:05:18.230
  • TO REALIZE ON YOUR PART
  • 00:05:18.230 --> 00:05:20.090
  • THAT YOU'RE ALREADY-PLEASING
  • 00:05:20.090 --> 00:05:21.210
  • JESUS DID ALL THAT.
  • 00:05:21.210 --> 00:05:23.030
  • NOTHING I DO IS GOING TO ADD
  • 00:05:23.030 --> 00:05:24.170
  • TO HIS PLEASURE IN ME.
  • 00:05:24.170 --> 00:05:27.020
  • I DON'T THINK
  • 00:05:27.020 --> 00:05:28.210
  • MOST PEOPLE GET THAT.
  • 00:05:28.210 --> 00:05:29.270
  • Randy: DID IT MAKE YOU FEEL
  • 00:05:29.270 --> 00:05:31.030
  • LIKE YOU WEREN'T GOOD ENOUGH
  • 00:05:31.030 --> 00:05:32.120
  • BECAUSE YOU WEREN'T
  • 00:05:32.120 --> 00:05:33.220
  • John: THERE IS NO JOY.
  • 00:05:34.250 --> 00:05:36.020
  • BECAUSE HOW MUCH MORE ARE YOU
  • 00:05:36.020 --> 00:05:37.100
  • GOING TO NEED TO DO?
  • 00:05:37.100 --> 00:05:38.190
  • SO IF I FAST A DAY, WELL,
  • 00:05:38.190 --> 00:05:40.020
  • THREE DAYS WOULD BE BETTER.
  • 00:05:40.020 --> 00:05:41.110
  • WELL THEN MAYBE A WEEK.
  • 00:05:42.210 --> 00:05:43.230
  • IF I GO A WEEK
  • 00:05:43.230 --> 00:05:45.000
  • THEN TWO WEEKS...
  • 00:05:45.000 --> 00:05:46.020
  • Sheila: IT WILL NEVER
  • 00:05:46.020 --> 00:05:47.070
  • BE ENOUGH.
  • 00:05:47.070 --> 00:05:48.180
  • John: IT'S NEVER --
  • 00:05:48.180 --> 00:05:49.220
  • THAT'S THE PROBLEM WHEN
  • 00:05:49.220 --> 00:05:50.230
  • WE'RE TRYING TO PLEASE GOD
  • 00:05:50.230 --> 00:05:51.270
  • WITH OUR OWN EFFORTS,
  • 00:05:51.270 --> 00:05:53.010
  • IT IS NEVER ENOUGH.
  • 00:05:53.010 --> 00:05:54.010
  • Randy: SO WHAT'S
  • 00:05:54.010 --> 00:05:55.020
  • THE REALIZATION
  • 00:05:55.020 --> 00:05:56.020
  • THAT THAT'S NOT THE WAY
  • 00:05:56.020 --> 00:05:57.050
  • WE SHOULD LIVE?
  • 00:05:57.050 --> 00:05:58.140
  • John: AS I WAS TEACHING ROMANS
  • 00:05:58.140 --> 00:05:59.200
  • ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:05:59.200 --> 00:06:00.290
  • WAS JUST FOR ME
  • 00:06:00.290 --> 00:06:02.050
  • IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO KNOW
  • 00:06:02.050 --> 00:06:03.150
  • THAT GOD ACCEPTS ME
  • 00:06:03.150 --> 00:06:04.250
  • THE WAY I AM,
  • 00:06:04.250 --> 00:06:05.260
  • JUST TO HEAR THAT,
  • 00:06:05.260 --> 00:06:06.290
  • I HAD TO KNOW
  • 00:06:06.290 --> 00:06:08.060
  • HOW CAN THAT BE POSSIBLE?
  • 00:06:08.060 --> 00:06:09.090
  • AND HOW DID GOD -- WHAT DID
  • 00:06:09.090 --> 00:06:10.120
  • HE DO TO MAKE THAT A REALITY?
  • 00:06:10.120 --> 00:06:12.130
  • SO AS I'M PREACHING
  • 00:06:12.130 --> 00:06:13.210
  • THROUGH ROMANS VERSE BY VERSE
  • 00:06:13.210 --> 00:06:15.100
  • AND I'M WRESTLING WITH...
  • 00:06:15.100 --> 00:06:18.070
  • A LOT OF TIMES WHAT PEOPLE DO
  • 00:06:18.070 --> 00:06:19.130
  • IS THEY'LL TAKE ROMANS
  • 00:06:19.130 --> 00:06:20.240
  • AND THE DIFFICULT THINGS,
  • 00:06:20.240 --> 00:06:22.210
  • THEY JUST KIND OF MOVE
  • 00:06:22.210 --> 00:06:23.240
  • THROUGH THEM AND "HEY,
  • 00:06:23.240 --> 00:06:25.020
  • WE'VE BEEN JUSTIFIED.
  • 00:06:25.020 --> 00:06:26.040
  • NOW ROMANS EIGHT,
  • 00:06:26.040 --> 00:06:27.210
  • THERE IS NO CONDEMNATION."
  • 00:06:27.210 --> 00:06:29.090
  • BUT THERE IS
  • 00:06:29.090 --> 00:06:30.190
  • A WHOLE LOT OF MATERIAL
  • 00:06:30.190 --> 00:06:31.240
  • IN-BETWEEN THERE THAT
  • 00:06:31.240 --> 00:06:32.280
  • REALLY HELPS US UNDERSTAND
  • 00:06:32.280 --> 00:06:34.010
  • THE LENGTHS TO WHICH GOD WENT
  • 00:06:34.010 --> 00:06:36.020
  • TO NOT ONLY SET US FREE
  • 00:06:36.020 --> 00:06:37.290
  • BUT TO WORK IN US.
  • 00:06:37.290 --> 00:06:39.290
  • AND THE FRUIT OF THAT
  • 00:06:39.290 --> 00:06:41.150
  • IS THE FRUIT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:06:41.150 --> 00:06:44.080
  • SANCTIFICATION,
  • 00:06:44.080 --> 00:06:45.220
  • GOD'S WORKING IN US.
  • 00:06:45.220 --> 00:06:47.040
  • WHAT HAPPENS IS
  • 00:06:47.040 --> 00:06:48.130
  • IT BECOMES VERY LIBERATING.
  • 00:06:48.130 --> 00:06:50.110
  • WANT YOU TO READ A BIT
  • 00:06:51.230 --> 00:06:52.290
  • BECAUSE WHEN I GOT
  • 00:06:52.290 --> 00:06:54.010
  • TO THIS PLACE IN THE BOOK
  • 00:06:54.010 --> 00:06:55.040
  • I WAS LIKE WOW!
  • 00:06:55.040 --> 00:06:56.080
  • THIS IS GOING TO SHAKE UP
  • 00:06:56.080 --> 00:06:57.120
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:06:57.120 --> 00:06:58.160
  • SO DO YOU MIND
  • 00:06:59.170 --> 00:07:00.180
  • READING THAT BIT?
  • 00:07:00.180 --> 00:07:01.220
  • John: SURE!
  • 00:07:01.220 --> 00:07:03.050
  • THE HEADING IS:
  • 00:07:03.050 --> 00:07:04.180
  • "THERE IS GRACE."
  • 00:07:04.180 --> 00:07:06.010
  • "NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE
  • 00:07:06.010 --> 00:07:07.250
  • OR WHERE YOU COME FROM,
  • 00:07:07.250 --> 00:07:09.260
  • NO MATTER WHAT YOU'VE DONE
  • 00:07:09.260 --> 00:07:11.280
  • OR HOW MANY TIMES
  • 00:07:11.280 --> 00:07:13.100
  • YOU'VE DONE IT,
  • 00:07:13.100 --> 00:07:14.130
  • THERE IS GRACE FOR YOU.
  • 00:07:14.130 --> 00:07:16.170
  • IF YOU'RE LABORING UNDER
  • 00:07:16.170 --> 00:07:18.160
  • CONSTANT SENSE
  • 00:07:18.160 --> 00:07:20.170
  • OF UNWORTHINESS,
  • 00:07:20.170 --> 00:07:22.190
  • FEELING LIKE
  • 00:07:22.190 --> 00:07:23.290
  • YOU'LL NEVER MEASURE UP,
  • 00:07:23.290 --> 00:07:25.110
  • THERE IS GRACE FOR YOU.
  • 00:07:25.110 --> 00:07:27.240
  • IF YOU STRUGGLE WITH LEGALISM
  • 00:07:27.240 --> 00:07:29.110
  • AND JUDGMENT, ALWAYS TRYING
  • 00:07:29.110 --> 00:07:30.160
  • TO EARN GOD'S APPROVAL
  • 00:07:30.160 --> 00:07:32.220
  • OR SOMEONE ELSE'S
  • 00:07:32.220 --> 00:07:34.030
  • FOR THAT MATTER,
  • 00:07:34.030 --> 00:07:35.100
  • THERE IS GRACE FOR YOU.
  • 00:07:35.100 --> 00:07:37.150
  • IF YOU STRUGGLE
  • 00:07:37.150 --> 00:07:38.260
  • TO LET GO OF THE PAST,
  • 00:07:38.260 --> 00:07:40.030
  • TO LET GO OF SOME HURT
  • 00:07:40.030 --> 00:07:41.130
  • THAT WAS INFLICTED ON YOU
  • 00:07:41.130 --> 00:07:42.200
  • OR TO FORGIVE THE PERSON
  • 00:07:42.200 --> 00:07:43.280
  • WHO INFLICTED THE DAMAGE,
  • 00:07:43.280 --> 00:07:45.220
  • THERE IS GRACE FOR YOU.
  • 00:07:45.220 --> 00:07:48.030
  • IF YOU'RE FIGHTING
  • 00:07:48.030 --> 00:07:49.100
  • WITH AN ADDICTION OR
  • 00:07:49.100 --> 00:07:51.020
  • SOME HABITUAL BESETTING SIN
  • 00:07:51.020 --> 00:07:53.090
  • THERE IS GRACE FOR YOU.
  • 00:07:53.090 --> 00:07:55.150
  • IF YOU STRUGGLE
  • 00:07:55.150 --> 00:07:56.280
  • TO GET OUT OF YOUR HEAD
  • 00:07:56.280 --> 00:07:58.120
  • AND INTO YOUR HEART,
  • 00:07:58.120 --> 00:07:59.180
  • IF YOU FEEL THAT
  • 00:07:59.180 --> 00:08:00.270
  • NO MATTER WHAT
  • 00:08:00.270 --> 00:08:02.060
  • YOU MIGHT LEARN ABOUT GOD,
  • 00:08:02.060 --> 00:08:03.140
  • YOU'RE NEVER QUITE ABLE
  • 00:08:03.140 --> 00:08:04.220
  • TO ENTER INTO A LIFE
  • 00:08:04.220 --> 00:08:05.280
  • OF TRUST AND FREEDOM,
  • 00:08:05.280 --> 00:08:07.220
  • THERE IS GRACE FOR YOU."
  • 00:08:08.120 --> 00:08:11.120
  • THAT'S REALLY THE MESSAGE
  • 00:08:11.120 --> 00:08:12.200
  • AND UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:08:12.200 --> 00:08:13.220
  • HOW THAT CAN BE TRUE IS WHY
  • 00:08:13.220 --> 00:08:15.160
  • I WANTED TO WRITE THIS BOOK
  • 00:08:15.160 --> 00:08:17.190
  • TO MAKE IT REAL FOR PEOPLE.
  • 00:08:17.190 --> 00:08:19.150
  • Randy: WHAT DID YOU SEE
  • 00:08:19.150 --> 00:08:20.200
  • WHEN THAT CLICKED WITH HIM?
  • 00:08:20.200 --> 00:08:22.270
  • Debbie: WELL,
  • 00:08:22.270 --> 00:08:24.160
  • I WATCHED HIM STRIVE
  • 00:08:24.160 --> 00:08:25.270
  • AND TRY TO LIVE UP
  • 00:08:27.150 --> 00:08:30.150
  • TO THE EXPECTATIONS
  • 00:08:30.150 --> 00:08:31.280
  • HE HAD FOR HIMSELF
  • 00:08:31.280 --> 00:08:33.110
  • OR PUT ON HIMSELF.
  • 00:08:33.110 --> 00:08:35.180
  • WE HAD A LOT OF CONVERSATIONS
  • 00:08:35.180 --> 00:08:37.150
  • OVER THE YEARS ABOUT IT.
  • 00:08:39.150 --> 00:08:42.150
  • I GUESS THE LAST TEN YEARS
  • 00:08:43.080 --> 00:08:46.080
  • JUST WATCHING HIM GRAPPLE
  • 00:08:46.080 --> 00:08:47.230
  • WITH THE SCRIPTURES
  • 00:08:47.230 --> 00:08:48.260
  • HE WAS TEACHING,
  • 00:08:48.260 --> 00:08:50.040
  • AND TO SEE ALMOST LIKE
  • 00:08:50.280 --> 00:08:53.280
  • THE LIGHT BULB GO ON
  • 00:08:53.280 --> 00:08:55.220
  • IN HIS HEART --
  • 00:08:55.220 --> 00:08:57.290
  • AN OBVIOUS CHANGE
  • 00:09:01.160 --> 00:09:03.060
  • IN HOW HE PRESENTS THE WORD,
  • 00:09:03.130 --> 00:09:06.130
  • THE LOVE OF CHRIST
  • 00:09:08.090 --> 00:09:09.280
  • WITH OTHERS.
  • 00:09:09.280 --> 00:09:11.210
  • YOU CAN SEE IT IN HIM.
  • 00:09:11.210 --> 00:09:13.080
  • IT'S VERY EVIDENT
  • 00:09:13.090 --> 00:09:16.090
  • IN JUST HOW HE VIEWS GOD.
  • 00:09:16.090 --> 00:09:18.180
  • IT'S A DIFFERENT VIEW OF GOD.
  • 00:09:18.180 --> 00:09:20.140
  • IT'S A RIGHT VIEW
  • 00:09:20.140 --> 00:09:22.010
  • OF THE FATHER.
  • 00:09:22.010 --> 00:09:23.110
  • Sheila: LET ME ASK YOU
  • 00:09:23.110 --> 00:09:24.190
  • ABOUT THAT
  • 00:09:24.190 --> 00:09:25.250
  • BECAUSE I STRUGGLED
  • 00:09:25.250 --> 00:09:27.030
  • THINKING OF GOD AS A FATHER
  • 00:09:27.030 --> 00:09:28.110
  • BECAUSE OF CIRCUMSTANCES
  • 00:09:28.110 --> 00:09:29.190
  • WITH MY OWN FATHER.
  • 00:09:29.190 --> 00:09:30.260
  • WHAT WAS YOUR RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:09:30.260 --> 00:09:32.040
  • LIKE WITH YOUR DAD
  • 00:09:32.040 --> 00:09:33.120
  • AND DID THAT IMPACT
  • 00:09:33.120 --> 00:09:34.180
  • HOW YOU VIEWED GOD?
  • 00:09:34.180 --> 00:09:35.240
  • John: MY DAD WAS AN HONORABLE
  • 00:09:35.240 --> 00:09:37.000
  • AND A VERY GOOD MAN.
  • 00:09:37.000 --> 00:09:38.030
  • HE WASN'T A BELIEVER
  • 00:09:38.030 --> 00:09:39.130
  • FOR MOST OF HIS LIFE,
  • 00:09:39.130 --> 00:09:40.200
  • GOT SAVED
  • 00:09:40.200 --> 00:09:41.290
  • TOWARD THE END OF HIS LIFE.
  • 00:09:41.290 --> 00:09:43.080
  • BUT HE WAS OLD SCHOOL.
  • 00:09:43.080 --> 00:09:44.200
  • ANYBODY HAVING
  • 00:09:44.200 --> 00:09:45.290
  • UNDERSTANDS THAT.
  • 00:09:47.060 --> 00:09:48.130
  • HE WASN'T UNKIND.
  • 00:09:48.130 --> 00:09:49.210
  • IN FACT, HE WAS VERY KIND
  • 00:09:49.210 --> 00:09:50.280
  • BUT HE WAS DISTANT.
  • 00:09:50.280 --> 00:09:52.050
  • HE WAS BUSY,
  • 00:09:52.050 --> 00:09:53.100
  • SIX KIDS, FARMING.
  • 00:09:55.050 --> 00:09:58.050
  • SO, THAT DID HAVE
  • 00:09:58.050 --> 00:09:59.120
  • AN IMPACT ON ME.
  • 00:09:59.120 --> 00:10:00.160
  • I'M NOT IN ANY WAY --
  • 00:10:00.160 --> 00:10:02.030
  • I WANT TO HONOR MY DAD
  • 00:10:02.030 --> 00:10:03.120
  • BECAUSE HE'S AN HONORABLE MAN.
  • 00:10:03.120 --> 00:10:04.160
  • BUT I REMEMBER
  • 00:10:04.160 --> 00:10:05.200
  • ONE DAY ON THE PLANE
  • 00:10:05.200 --> 00:10:06.240
  • WHEN DEBBIE AND I WERE
  • 00:10:06.240 --> 00:10:07.280
  • FLYING SOMEWHERE
  • 00:10:07.280 --> 00:10:09.020
  • AND I LEANED OVER TO HER
  • 00:10:09.020 --> 00:10:10.080
  • AND I SAID, "YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:10:10.080 --> 00:10:11.130
  • I MESSED UP."
  • 00:10:11.130 --> 00:10:12.130
  • WHEN A WIFE HEARS THAT,
  • 00:10:12.130 --> 00:10:13.220
  • SHE'S THINKING,
  • 00:10:13.220 --> 00:10:15.020
  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN
  • 00:10:15.020 --> 00:10:16.040
  • YOU'RE MESSED UP?
  • 00:10:16.040 --> 00:10:17.060
  • Debbie: WHAT EXACTLY
  • 00:10:17.060 --> 00:10:18.110
  • DOES THIS MEAN?
  • 00:10:18.110 --> 00:10:19.230
  • Sheila: BE MORE SPECIFIC.
  • 00:10:19.230 --> 00:10:20.280
  • John: I SAID TO HIM,
  • 00:10:20.280 --> 00:10:21.290
  • HERE I AM PASTORING
  • 00:10:21.290 --> 00:10:23.020
  • A MEGA CHURCH AND
  • 00:10:23.020 --> 00:10:24.040
  • I HAVE THIS CONFLICTED VIEW
  • 00:10:24.040 --> 00:10:26.010
  • OF THE FATHER
  • 00:10:26.010 --> 00:10:27.150
  • -- AND I KNEW IT.
  • 00:10:27.150 --> 00:10:28.230
  • I SAID THERE'S JESUS,
  • 00:10:28.230 --> 00:10:29.280
  • HE'S THE ONE
  • 00:10:29.280 --> 00:10:31.040
  • WHO TOOK THE BULLET FOR ME.
  • 00:10:31.040 --> 00:10:33.000
  • HE'S THE ONE
  • 00:10:33.000 --> 00:10:34.030
  • SO I'M ALL IN ON JESUS.
  • 00:10:34.030 --> 00:10:36.240
  • AND THE HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 00:10:36.240 --> 00:10:38.000
  • I SENSE HIS POWER IN MY LIFE,
  • 00:10:38.000 --> 00:10:39.180
  • I KNOW THAT.
  • 00:10:39.180 --> 00:10:41.040
  • BUT THE FATHER,
  • 00:10:41.040 --> 00:10:43.000
  • HE WAS GOING TO GET ME.
  • 00:10:43.000 --> 00:10:45.090
  • IF IT HADN'T BEEN FOR JESUS
  • 00:10:45.090 --> 00:10:46.270
  • WHERE WOULD I BE?
  • 00:10:46.270 --> 00:10:48.040
  • WHICH IS TOTALLY WRONG.
  • 00:10:48.040 --> 00:10:50.030
  • IT MISSES MUCH OF THEOLOGY.
  • 00:10:50.050 --> 00:10:53.050
  • YOU KNOW ABOUT
  • 00:10:53.050 --> 00:10:54.110
  • THE LOVE OF GOD
  • 00:10:54.110 --> 00:10:55.180
  • BUT UNLESS YOU REALLY
  • 00:10:55.180 --> 00:10:56.280
  • UNDERSTAND THE GRACE OF GOD
  • 00:10:56.280 --> 00:10:58.020
  • YOU DON'T KNOW
  • 00:10:58.020 --> 00:10:59.060
  • THE EXTREME LENGTHS
  • 00:10:59.060 --> 00:11:01.280
  • TO WHICH GOD
  • 00:11:01.280 --> 00:11:03.120
  • NOT JUST IN TIME,
  • 00:11:03.120 --> 00:11:05.200
  • BUT IN ETERNITY
  • 00:11:05.200 --> 00:11:07.080
  • BEFORE TIME BEGAN,
  • 00:11:07.080 --> 00:11:08.130
  • WENT TO LOVE YOU
  • 00:11:08.260 --> 00:11:11.260
  • AND TO LOVE ME.
  • 00:11:11.260 --> 00:11:13.250
  • IT'S A STUNNING THING
  • 00:11:14.000 --> 00:11:17.000
  • TO THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:11:17.000 --> 00:11:18.070
  • AND THAT BEFORE
  • 00:11:18.070 --> 00:11:19.150
  • I EVER DID ANYTHING
  • 00:11:19.150 --> 00:11:20.180
  • HE SAID, "I WANT YOU!
  • 00:11:20.180 --> 00:11:23.060
  • AND I WANT YOU TO BE WANTED
  • 00:11:24.220 --> 00:11:27.220
  • WITHOUT HAVING EVER DONE
  • 00:11:27.220 --> 00:11:29.040
  • ANYTHING TO DESERVE IT."
  • 00:11:29.040 --> 00:11:31.110
  • AND TO BE WANTED WHEN HE KNEW
  • 00:11:31.110 --> 00:11:33.100
  • ALL THE THINGS I WOULD DO
  • 00:11:33.100 --> 00:11:35.090
  • THAT WERE NOT
  • 00:11:35.090 --> 00:11:37.250
  • WHAT HE WOULD HAVE WANTED.
  • 00:11:37.250 --> 00:11:40.040
  • THE IMPACT.
  • 00:11:41.130 --> 00:11:42.160
  • I READ THE BOOK
  • 00:11:42.160 --> 00:11:43.210
  • AND WE'LL LET YOU KNOW
  • 00:11:43.210 --> 00:11:44.260
  • HOW YOU CAN GET A HOLD OF IT,
  • 00:11:44.260 --> 00:11:46.000
  • YOU REALLY NEED TO.
  • 00:11:46.000 --> 00:11:47.020
  • BUT I THINK OF THE IMPACT
  • 00:11:47.020 --> 00:11:48.060
  • ON PASTORS' HEARTS.
  • 00:11:49.130 --> 00:11:50.150
  • THOSE WHO POUR THEIR LIVES OUT
  • 00:11:50.150 --> 00:11:51.240
  • AND PERHAPS
  • 00:11:51.240 --> 00:11:53.050
  • HAVEN'T REALLY TASTED
  • 00:11:53.050 --> 00:11:55.030
  • OR BEEN SOAKED TO THE SKIN
  • 00:11:55.030 --> 00:11:56.260
  • THEMSELVES
  • 00:11:56.260 --> 00:11:58.000
  • IN THE GRACE OF GOD.
  • 00:11:58.000 --> 00:11:59.060
  • HOW LIBERATING THIS COULD BE!
  • 00:11:59.060 --> 00:12:00.290
  • John: I PRAY FOR EVERYBODY.
  • 00:12:00.290 --> 00:12:02.060
  • AS I WEPT ONE MORNING,
  • 00:12:02.060 --> 00:12:03.140
  • I WAS STUDYING
  • 00:12:03.140 --> 00:12:04.180
  • AND WE WERE AWAY
  • 00:12:04.180 --> 00:12:06.030
  • AND I WAS WORKING
  • 00:12:06.030 --> 00:12:07.060
  • ON SOME THINGS.
  • 00:12:07.060 --> 00:12:08.130
  • I WAS IN A STARBUCKS
  • 00:12:08.130 --> 00:12:09.250
  • PARKING LOT, PREDAWN.
  • 00:12:10.060 --> 00:12:13.060
  • AS I WAS READING
  • 00:12:13.060 --> 00:12:15.040
  • I JUST WEPT AND I SAID,
  • 00:12:15.040 --> 00:12:16.190
  • "WHY HAS NOBODY
  • 00:12:16.190 --> 00:12:18.000
  • EVER TOLD ME THIS?
  • 00:12:18.000 --> 00:12:19.140
  • WHY HAS NOBODY...?"
  • 00:12:19.140 --> 00:12:22.030
  • AND I'VE BEEN PREACHING,
  • 00:12:22.030 --> 00:12:23.280
  • I'VE BEEN READING,
  • 00:12:23.280 --> 00:12:25.070
  • I'VE BEEN STUDYING,
  • 00:12:25.070 --> 00:12:26.140
  • WHY HAS NOBODY
  • 00:12:26.140 --> 00:12:27.180
  • EVER EXPLAINED THIS TO ME?
  • 00:12:27.180 --> 00:12:28.260
  • BECAUSE THIS IS THE BEST NEWS
  • 00:12:28.260 --> 00:12:30.120
  • I NEVER HEARD.
  • 00:12:30.120 --> 00:12:32.130
  • AND THAT'S THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:12:32.130 --> 00:12:34.290
  • IT'S THE BEST NEWS!
  • 00:12:34.290 --> 00:12:36.110
  • I'M CONVINCED
  • 00:12:36.110 --> 00:12:37.130
  • THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:12:37.130 --> 00:12:38.170
  • DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:12:38.170 --> 00:12:39.220
  • THE MAGNITUDE
  • 00:12:39.220 --> 00:12:41.010
  • OF THE GREAT NEWS
  • 00:12:41.010 --> 00:12:42.070
  • OF THE GOSPEL BECAUSE
  • 00:12:42.070 --> 00:12:43.140
  • THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND GRACE.
  • 00:12:43.140 --> 00:12:44.240
  • AND I GREW UP HEARING THIS
  • 00:12:46.010 --> 00:12:47.080
  • IN A PRETTY TRADITIONAL CHURCH
  • 00:12:47.080 --> 00:12:48.240
  • IS, YOU'VE GOT TO BE
  • 00:12:48.240 --> 00:12:50.070
  • CAREFUL WITH GRACE.
  • 00:12:50.070 --> 00:12:51.110
  • BECAUSE PEOPLE WILL THINK
  • 00:12:53.090 --> 00:12:54.240
  • THEY CAN DO WHATEVER
  • 00:12:54.240 --> 00:12:56.030
  • THEY WANT TO DO.
  • 00:12:56.030 --> 00:12:57.130
  • MY PASTOR LIKES TO SAY THAT
  • 00:12:57.130 --> 00:12:58.260
  • AFTER YOU BECOME A BELIEVER
  • 00:12:58.260 --> 00:13:00.150
  • YOU CAN SIN ALL YOU WANT TO.
  • 00:13:00.150 --> 00:13:01.240
  • GOD JUST CHANGES YOUR WANT TO.
  • 00:13:01.240 --> 00:13:04.050
  • YOU SEE
  • 00:13:04.050 --> 00:13:05.210
  • IN THAT KIND OF DYNAMIC
  • 00:13:05.210 --> 00:13:06.260
  • WHERE YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY
  • 00:13:06.260 --> 00:13:08.010
  • ABOUT PREACHING TOO MUCH GRACE
  • 00:13:08.010 --> 00:13:09.170
  • BECAUSE WHEN YOU
  • 00:13:09.170 --> 00:13:11.010
  • REALLY GET IT,
  • 00:13:11.010 --> 00:13:12.280
  • ALL OF THOSE SINFUL DESIRES
  • 00:13:12.280 --> 00:13:15.020
  • GO AWAY BECAUSE
  • 00:13:15.020 --> 00:13:16.130
  • YOU'RE OVERWHELMED
  • 00:13:16.130 --> 00:13:17.220
  • BY THIS LOVE OF GOD.
  • 00:13:17.220 --> 00:13:20.180
  • DO YOU SENSE SOME OF THAT?
  • 00:13:20.180 --> 00:13:22.050
  • DO YOU SEE THAT?
  • 00:13:22.050 --> 00:13:23.150
  • John: THERE'S NO QUESTION.
  • 00:13:23.150 --> 00:13:25.000
  • TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:13:26.170 --> 00:13:29.020
  • THE LOVE OF THE LORD
  • 00:13:29.020 --> 00:13:30.080
  • IN A NEW DIMENSION
  • 00:13:30.080 --> 00:13:31.090
  • AND TO REST.
  • 00:13:33.230 --> 00:13:35.280
  • I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:13:35.280 --> 00:13:37.090
  • THAT SURPRISED ME
  • 00:13:37.090 --> 00:13:38.170
  • IN ALL OF THIS WAS
  • 00:13:38.170 --> 00:13:39.290
  • MY INTERACTION WITH PEOPLE.
  • 00:13:39.290 --> 00:13:42.260
  • WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND
  • 00:13:42.260 --> 00:13:44.110
  • HOW MUCH GOD VALUES YOU,
  • 00:13:44.110 --> 00:13:46.090
  • WHAT YOU DO IS YOU HAVE
  • 00:13:46.090 --> 00:13:48.160
  • A NEW VALUE OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:13:48.160 --> 00:13:50.130
  • Sheila: THAT'S TRUE.
  • 00:13:50.130 --> 00:13:51.190
  • IT CHANGES
  • 00:13:51.190 --> 00:13:53.030
  • HOW YOU SEE EVERYONE.
  • 00:13:53.030 --> 00:13:54.080
  • John: I THINK
  • 00:13:54.080 --> 00:13:55.140
  • AS A PASTOR I'VE LOVED PEOPLE
  • 00:13:55.140 --> 00:13:56.170
  • BUT IT'S DIFFERENT.
  • 00:13:56.170 --> 00:13:57.220
  • I CAN ONLY SAY IT'S DIFFERENT.
  • 00:13:57.220 --> 00:13:58.250
  • I WANT PEOPLE
  • 00:13:58.250 --> 00:14:00.020
  • WHEN I INTERACT WITH THEM
  • 00:14:00.020 --> 00:14:01.050
  • TO HAVE SOME SENSE
  • 00:14:01.050 --> 00:14:02.110
  • OF HOW MUCH GOD LOVES THEM.
  • 00:14:02.110 --> 00:14:03.170
  • Sheila: DEBBIE,
  • 00:14:03.170 --> 00:14:04.190
  • I WANT TO ASK YOU BECAUSE
  • 00:14:04.190 --> 00:14:05.230
  • I REMEMBER THE VERY FIRST TIME
  • 00:14:05.230 --> 00:14:07.000
  • I MET YOU.
  • 00:14:07.000 --> 00:14:08.030
  • I CAME TO DO YOUR
  • 00:14:08.030 --> 00:14:09.050
  • INCREDIBLE CONFERENCE,
  • 00:14:09.050 --> 00:14:10.160
  • IT'S SO BRILLIANT!
  • 00:14:10.160 --> 00:14:11.210
  • AND I REMEMBERED JUST
  • 00:14:11.210 --> 00:14:12.270
  • THE SMILE ON YOUR FACE.
  • 00:14:12.270 --> 00:14:14.010
  • BUT THEN I LEARNED ABOUT
  • 00:14:14.010 --> 00:14:15.100
  • YOUR BATTLE WITH CANCER.
  • 00:14:15.100 --> 00:14:16.140
  • SO WHEN YOU SIT HERE
  • 00:14:16.140 --> 00:14:17.150
  • AND YOU TALK ABOUT
  • 00:14:17.150 --> 00:14:18.190
  • THE GRACE OF GOD,
  • 00:14:18.190 --> 00:14:19.260
  • THE FAVOR OF GOD,
  • 00:14:19.260 --> 00:14:21.030
  • WHAT DID THAT DO TO YOU
  • 00:14:21.030 --> 00:14:22.090
  • WHEN YOU WALKED THROUGH
  • 00:14:22.090 --> 00:14:23.180
  • A DARKER VALLEY?
  • 00:14:23.180 --> 00:14:25.200
  • Debbie: AS FAR AS
  • 00:14:25.200 --> 00:14:26.290
  • JUST THE GRACE OF GOD,
  • 00:14:26.290 --> 00:14:28.050
  • WHEN YOU'RE WALKING
  • 00:14:28.050 --> 00:14:29.110
  • THROUGH DARKNESS
  • 00:14:29.110 --> 00:14:30.190
  • YOU EXPERIENCE IT
  • 00:14:30.190 --> 00:14:31.270
  • IN A DEEPER WAY.
  • 00:14:31.270 --> 00:14:33.010
  • I WOULD SAY,
  • 00:14:33.010 --> 00:14:34.060
  • WITH REGARDS TO THE CANCER,
  • 00:14:34.060 --> 00:14:35.100
  • I WAS DIAGNOSED
  • 00:14:35.100 --> 00:14:36.170
  • AND HAD A DOUBLE MASTECTOMY,
  • 00:14:36.170 --> 00:14:38.020
  • I HAD A LOT OF FAITH --
  • 00:14:38.020 --> 00:14:40.120
  • I HAD FAITH.
  • 00:14:40.120 --> 00:14:41.180
  • I HAD FAITH THAT GOD
  • 00:14:41.180 --> 00:14:42.210
  • COULD HEAL ME IN AN INSTANT.
  • 00:14:42.210 --> 00:14:43.280
  • HE DIDN'T CHOOSE TO DO THAT.
  • 00:14:43.280 --> 00:14:45.020
  • HE CHOSE TO HEAL ME
  • 00:14:45.020 --> 00:14:46.110
  • IN A DIFFERENT WAY.
  • 00:14:46.110 --> 00:14:48.270
  • BUT WATCHING OR EXPERIENCING
  • 00:14:49.080 --> 00:14:52.080
  • JUST THE CLOSENESS OF GOD
  • 00:14:52.080 --> 00:14:54.190
  • WHEN YOU WALK THROUGH
  • 00:14:54.190 --> 00:14:56.040
  • AN EXPERIENCE LIKE THAT
  • 00:14:56.040 --> 00:14:57.080
  • OR TRIAL OR DARK TIME IS
  • 00:14:57.250 --> 00:15:00.270
  • IT BECOMES SO REAL.
  • 00:15:00.270 --> 00:15:02.140
  • THE FATHER'S HAND ON YOU
  • 00:15:02.140 --> 00:15:04.050
  • AND HIS CARE FOR YOU
  • 00:15:04.050 --> 00:15:05.290
  • JUST BECOMES JUST VERY REAL.
  • 00:15:07.270 --> 00:15:10.270
  • A VERSE IN ISAIAH,
  • 00:15:10.270 --> 00:15:12.070
  • I WAS ACTUALLY
  • 00:15:12.070 --> 00:15:13.130
  • THINKING ABOUT IT TODAY,
  • 00:15:13.130 --> 00:15:14.180
  • WHERE IT SAYS, "THERE IS
  • 00:15:14.180 --> 00:15:15.230
  • TREASURES IN THE DARKNESS"
  • 00:15:15.230 --> 00:15:17.010
  • I THINK IT IS SO REVEALS
  • 00:15:17.010 --> 00:15:19.140
  • THE LOVE AND CARE OF THE LORD
  • 00:15:21.240 --> 00:15:24.240
  • WHEN YOU EXPERIENCE
  • 00:15:24.240 --> 00:15:26.050
  • SOMETHING HEAVY.
  • 00:15:26.290 --> 00:15:29.290
  • I HAD TO JUST
  • 00:15:29.290 --> 00:15:31.090
  • HOLD ONTO HIS HAND
  • 00:15:31.090 --> 00:15:32.120
  • BECAUSE THAT'S ALL I COULD SEE
  • 00:15:32.120 --> 00:15:33.170
  • DURING THAT TIME.
  • 00:15:33.170 --> 00:15:34.250
  • I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS AHEAD.
  • 00:15:34.250 --> 00:15:36.070
  • AND GOD'S GOOD.
  • 00:15:36.070 --> 00:15:38.210
  • Sheila: THINK OF
  • 00:15:38.210 --> 00:15:39.290
  • THE NUMBER OF BELIEVERS WHO,
  • 00:15:39.290 --> 00:15:41.010
  • THERE IS A LOT OF FEAR
  • 00:15:42.070 --> 00:15:43.110
  • INVOLVED IN THEIR FAITH.
  • 00:15:43.110 --> 00:15:44.150
  • THEY'RE GRATEFUL
  • 00:15:44.150 --> 00:15:45.220
  • THAT JESUS DIED FOR THEM
  • 00:15:45.220 --> 00:15:46.280
  • THAT SOMEHOW
  • 00:15:48.140 --> 00:15:49.230
  • THEY WILL MESS UP.
  • 00:15:49.230 --> 00:15:50.280
  • I IMAGINE SOMEBODY WATCHING
  • 00:15:50.280 --> 00:15:52.040
  • THINKING, I'M SURE GOD
  • 00:15:52.040 --> 00:15:53.080
  • WOULD SHOW HIS GRACE TO YOU,
  • 00:15:53.080 --> 00:15:54.150
  • YOU'RE A PASTOR,
  • 00:15:54.150 --> 00:15:55.210
  • YOU'RE A GOOD GUY.
  • 00:15:55.210 --> 00:15:56.290
  • THEY'RE MAYBE THINKING,
  • 00:15:56.290 --> 00:15:58.090
  • I'VE DONE TOO MUCH.
  • 00:15:58.090 --> 00:15:59.200
  • I'VE GONE TOO FAR.
  • 00:15:59.200 --> 00:16:00.290
  • WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO THAT?
  • 00:16:00.290 --> 00:16:02.080
  • John: HIS GRACE
  • 00:16:02.080 --> 00:16:03.150
  • IS A WHOLE LOT BIGGER THAN
  • 00:16:03.150 --> 00:16:04.230
  • THEY CAN POSSIBLY IMAGINE,
  • 00:16:04.230 --> 00:16:05.240
  • THAT ANY OF US CAN IMAGINE.
  • 00:16:05.240 --> 00:16:07.110
  • I THINK THERE IS
  • 00:16:07.110 --> 00:16:08.170
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE AS WELL
  • 00:16:08.170 --> 00:16:09.210
  • WHO ARE WATCHING
  • 00:16:09.210 --> 00:16:11.030
  • WHO FEEL THEY'RE TRYING
  • 00:16:11.030 --> 00:16:12.120
  • BUT THEY'RE JUST
  • 00:16:12.120 --> 00:16:13.200
  • A CONTINUAL DISAPPOINTMENT.
  • 00:16:13.200 --> 00:16:15.040
  • WHEN YOU FEEL YOU'VE
  • 00:16:15.040 --> 00:16:16.180
  • DISAPPOINTED GOD LIKE THAT
  • 00:16:16.180 --> 00:16:17.240
  • IT IS HARD TO GET EXCITED
  • 00:16:17.240 --> 00:16:19.090
  • ABOUT THE LORD.
  • 00:16:19.090 --> 00:16:20.230
  • HONESTLY, WHAT HAPPENS IS
  • 00:16:20.230 --> 00:16:21.290
  • YOUR EYES ARE OFF OF HIM
  • 00:16:21.290 --> 00:16:23.040
  • AND ON YOURSELF.
  • 00:16:23.040 --> 00:16:24.170
  • ROMANS 8:1,
  • 00:16:24.270 --> 00:16:27.270
  • NO CONDEMNATION --
  • 00:16:29.130 --> 00:16:31.020
  • NO CONDEMNATION."
  • 00:16:31.020 --> 00:16:33.070
  • A LOT OF CHRISTIANS
  • 00:16:33.070 --> 00:16:34.240
  • THINK IT SAYS
  • 00:16:34.240 --> 00:16:36.010
  • "THERE IS THEREFORE
  • 00:16:37.100 --> 00:16:38.160
  • LESS CONDEMNATION."
  • 00:16:38.160 --> 00:16:40.160
  • THEY FEEL LIKE

  • IT'S HARD TO PUT YOUR ARMS
  • 00:16:59.190 --> 00:17:00.290
  • AROUND IT.
  • 00:17:00.290 --> 00:17:02.050
  • THAT IS THE BEGINNING
  • 00:17:02.050 --> 00:17:04.050
  • OF UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:17:04.050 --> 00:17:05.140
  • THIS INCREDIBLE GRACE OF GOD,
  • 00:17:05.140 --> 00:17:08.030
  • AND THE LOVE OF GOD FOR US.
  • 00:17:08.030 --> 00:17:10.090
  • AND HE LOVES US
  • 00:17:10.090 --> 00:17:11.210
  • NOT BECAUSE OF WHAT WE DID
  • 00:17:11.210 --> 00:17:12.290
  • OR DIDN'T DO,
  • 00:17:12.290 --> 00:17:14.010
  • HE LOVES US
  • 00:17:14.010 --> 00:17:15.050
  • BECAUSE HE MADE US

  • AND HE PLANNED
  • 00:17:16.110 --> 00:17:17.210
  • FOR OUR CREATION.
  • 00:17:17.210 --> 00:17:18.270
  • AND HE PURPOSED,
  • 00:17:18.270 --> 00:17:21.250
  • BEFORE TIME BEGAN,
  • 00:17:21.250 --> 00:17:23.220
  • TO SET HIS AFFECTION ON US.
  • 00:17:23.220 --> 00:17:25.230
  • THAT'S HOW MUCH HE LOVES US.
  • 00:17:25.230 --> 00:17:28.000
  • WHETHER WE FEEL THAT OR NOT,
  • 00:17:28.000 --> 00:17:29.280
  • IS NOT THE ISSUE,

  • HIS LOVE IS STILL THERE.
  • 00:17:31.050 --> 00:17:32.230
  • Randy: BUT IT DOES MATTER
  • 00:17:32.230 --> 00:17:34.010
  • HOW WE RESPOND TO THAT;
  • 00:17:34.010 --> 00:17:35.070
  • DOESN'T IT?
  • 00:17:35.070 --> 00:17:36.110
  • DOESN'T IT MAKE
  • 00:17:36.110 --> 00:17:37.170
  • SOME KIND OF DIFFERENCE?
  • 00:17:37.170 --> 00:17:38.200
  • John: WELL, OUR RESPONSE
  • 00:17:38.200 --> 00:17:39.270
  • IS TO RECEIVE THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:17:39.270 --> 00:17:41.060
  • UNLESS WE PUT OUR FAITH
  • 00:17:41.060 --> 00:17:42.140
  • IN JESUS CHRIST AND SAY,
  • 00:17:42.160 --> 00:17:45.160
  • "JESUS, I BELIEVE
  • 00:17:45.160 --> 00:17:46.280
  • YOU DIED FOR MY SIN
  • 00:17:46.280 --> 00:17:48.080
  • AND I RECEIVE THAT SAVING WORK
  • 00:17:48.080 --> 00:17:50.100
  • ON THE CROSS,"
  • 00:17:50.100 --> 00:17:51.190
  • THAT REVOLUTIONIZES,
  • 00:17:51.190 --> 00:17:52.270
  • THAT'S A MIRACLE
  • 00:17:52.270 --> 00:17:54.030
  • FROM THE INSIDE OUT
  • 00:17:54.030 --> 00:17:55.110
  • THAT CHANGES OUR HEART
  • 00:17:55.110 --> 00:17:56.160
  • AND HELPS US TO BEGIN
  • 00:17:56.160 --> 00:17:58.050
  • TO WALK WITH GOD
  • 00:17:58.050 --> 00:17:59.230
  • AND KNOW GOD IN A WAY
  • 00:17:59.230 --> 00:18:01.080

  • FREEDOM.
  • 00:18:06.020 --> 00:18:07.080
  • WHAT DOES THAT FEEL LIKE?
  • 00:18:07.080 --> 00:18:08.160
  • HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE
  • 00:18:08.160 --> 00:18:09.230
  • John: THE BURDEN LIFTED.
  • 00:18:10.290 --> 00:18:12.070
  • NOT ONLY THE PEACE OF GOD
  • 00:18:12.070 --> 00:18:14.180
  • BUT PEACE WITH GOD
  • 00:18:14.180 --> 00:18:16.010
  • IN A WHOLE NEW WAY,
  • 00:18:16.010 --> 00:18:17.050

  • IS "TA-DA!"
  • 00:18:29.170 --> 00:18:30.190
  • BECAUSE I EXPECT GOD

  • YOU SAID, "WE DON'T
  • 00:18:48.050 --> 00:18:49.100

  • SAW A WORLD FULL OF TROUBLE
  • 00:23:23.010 --> 00:23:24.280

  • HOW'S IT EVER GONNA TURN AROUND
  • 00:23:27.220 --> 00:23:29.220
  • SO I TURNED MY EYES TO HEAVEN
  • 00:23:29.250 --> 00:23:33.060
  • I THOUGHT, "GOD, WHY DON'T YOU DO SOMETHING?"
  • 00:23:33.090 --> 00:23:38.060
  • WELL, I JUST COULDN'T BEAR THE THOUGHT
  • 00:23:38.090 --> 00:23:41.140

  • THE THOUGHT DISGUSTED ME
  • 00:23:45.230 --> 00:23:47.240
  • SO, I SHOOK MY FIST AT HEAVEN
  • 00:23:47.270 --> 00:23:51.050
  • SAID, "GOD, WHY DON'T YOU DO SOMETHING?"
  • 00:23:51.080 --> 00:23:55.050
