  • - IF YOU WAKE UP EVERY MORNING AND
  • 00:00:06.070 --> 00:00:08.100
  • YOU'RE READING FROM A SCRIPT FOR YOUR LIFE AND THAT SCRIPT
  • 00:00:08.130 --> 00:00:11.020
  • SAYS, "YOU CAN'T DO THIS. YOU DON'T HAVE WHAT IT TAKES."
  • 00:00:11.050 --> 00:00:15.260
  • OR "YOU DON'T NEED ANY HELP."
  • 00:00:15.290 --> 00:00:19.220
  • OR "GOD JUST WANTS YOU TO BE HAPPY TODAY."
  • 00:00:19.250 --> 00:00:22.040
  • IF YOU READ FROM A SCRIPT LIKE THAT,
  • 00:00:22.070 --> 00:00:24.040
  • YOU'RE GOING TO GIVE UP, YOU'RE GOING TO QUIT.
  • 00:00:24.070 --> 00:00:26.040
  • Announcer: WHEN YOU'RE HANGING BY A THREAD,
  • 00:00:26.070 --> 00:00:28.040

  • 00:00:28.070 --> 00:00:30.040
  • BEST-SELLING AUTHOR KYLE IDLEMAN SAYS, DON'T GIVE UP !

  • 00:00:39.090 --> 00:00:46.060
  • James: WE'VE GOT A GUEST BACK
  • 00:00:59.010 --> 00:01:02.030
  • I'VE REALLY COME TO LOVE.
  • 00:01:02.030 --> 00:01:03.140
  • HE KIND OF THINKS THIS IS PART
  • 00:01:03.140 --> 00:01:04.220
  • OF HIS EXPANDED MINISTRY
  • 00:01:04.220 --> 00:01:06.020
  • OF TELEVISION.
  • 00:01:06.020 --> 00:01:07.110
  • KYLE IDLEMAN IS HERE.
  • 00:01:07.110 --> 00:01:08.240
  • ONE OF THE MEN I ADMIRE
  • 00:01:10.170 --> 00:01:11.170
  • ABOUT AS MUCH AS ANYONE
  • 00:01:11.170 --> 00:01:12.190
  • ON THE PLANET.
  • 00:01:12.190 --> 00:01:13.240
  • I'M JAMES ROBISON, BY THE WAY.
  • 00:01:13.240 --> 00:01:14.280
  • THIS IS NOT BETTY.
  • 00:01:14.280 --> 00:01:16.030
  • BETTY HAS A VERY BAD COUGH
  • 00:01:16.030 --> 00:01:17.080
  • SO RANDY SAID, "I'LL STAND IN
  • 00:01:17.080 --> 00:01:18.100
  • FOR THE WEEK."
  • 00:01:18.100 --> 00:01:19.170
  • THIS IS OUR SON, RANDY.
  • 00:01:19.170 --> 00:01:20.260
  • YOU SEE HIM WITH SHEILA WALSH
  • 00:01:20.260 --> 00:01:22.020
  • AND THEY'RE JUST INCREDIBLE
  • 00:01:22.020 --> 00:01:23.090
  • IN EXALTING JESUS.
  • 00:01:23.090 --> 00:01:24.230
  • BUT KYLE IDLEMAN CAME IN
  • 00:01:24.230 --> 00:01:26.090
  • AS A TEACHING LEADER.
  • 00:01:26.120 --> 00:01:29.120
  • I WOULDN'T EVEN CALL HIM
  • 00:01:29.120 --> 00:01:30.180
  • REALLY NECESSARILY
  • 00:01:30.180 --> 00:01:31.240
  • A TEACHING PASTOR.
  • 00:01:31.240 --> 00:01:32.290
  • HE'S A YOUNG MAN THAT'S
  • 00:01:32.290 --> 00:01:34.040
  • TEACHING AND DAVE SAID
  • 00:01:34.040 --> 00:01:35.110
  • HE IS REALLY REMARKABLE.
  • 00:01:35.110 --> 00:01:36.150
  • SO WE STARTED HAVING HIM
  • 00:01:36.150 --> 00:01:37.170
  • AND NOW HE IS PASTOR.
  • 00:01:37.170 --> 00:01:38.230
  • AT EASTER THEY HAD
  • 00:01:38.230 --> 00:01:39.280
  • 58.000 ATTEND.
  • 00:01:39.280 --> 00:01:41.010
  • DID YOU HEAR WHAT I SAID?
  • 00:01:41.010 --> 00:01:42.050
  • 58.000!
  • 00:01:42.050 --> 00:01:43.080
  • I SAID I CAN HARDLY WAIT
  • 00:01:43.080 --> 00:01:44.120
  • TO TELL OUR PASTOR ROBERT
  • 00:01:44.120 --> 00:01:45.150
  • MORRIS AT GATEWAY BECAUSE
  • 00:01:45.150 --> 00:01:46.200
  • FOR EASTER GATEWAY HAD
  • 00:01:46.200 --> 00:01:47.260
  • 55.000.
  • 00:01:47.260 --> 00:01:49.150
  • KYLE UP IN LOUISVILLE,
  • 00:01:49.150 --> 00:01:50.280
  • KENTUCKY, THEY HAD 58.000.
  • 00:01:50.280 --> 00:01:53.060
  • ROBERT, GET TO WORK.
  • 00:01:53.060 --> 00:01:55.100
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:01:55.100 --> 00:01:57.010
  • SO HERE IS KYLE,
  • 00:01:57.010 --> 00:01:58.220
  • THIS INCREDIBLE YOUNG MAN
  • 00:01:58.220 --> 00:02:01.070
  • THAT JUST HAS A GENTLE SPIRIT
  • 00:02:01.070 --> 00:02:03.140
  • AND A COMPASSIONATE HEART
  • 00:02:03.140 --> 00:02:04.280
  • AND A WONDERFUL GIFT.
  • 00:02:04.280 --> 00:02:06.190
  • AND HE WROTE THIS BOOK
  • 00:02:06.190 --> 00:02:08.210
  • THAT HE WANTED TO COME

  • AND TALK TO US ABOUT.
  • 00:02:09.230 --> 00:02:11.020

  • FAITH THAT GIVES YOU THE

  • CONFIDENCE TO KEEP BELIEVING
  • 00:02:13.210 --> 00:02:14.290
  • AND THE COURAGE TO KEEP GOING.
  • 00:02:14.290 --> 00:02:16.190
  • I WANT YOU TO WELCOME
  • 00:02:16.190 --> 00:02:18.060
  • THE AUTHOR AND THE PASTOR NOW.
  • 00:02:18.060 --> 00:02:19.290
  • WELCOME KYLE IDLEMAN
  • 00:02:19.290 --> 00:02:21.230
  • TO LIFE TODAY .
  • 00:02:21.230 --> 00:02:23.190
  • I'M SO GLAD YOU'RE BACK.
  • 00:02:23.190 --> 00:02:25.110
  • WHAT IS THE NAME
  • 00:02:25.110 --> 00:02:27.160
  • OF THE CHURCH NOW?
  • 00:02:27.160 --> 00:02:28.230
  • WHAT'S IT CALLED?
  • 00:02:28.230 --> 00:02:30.000
  • Kyle: SOUTHEAST CHRISTIAN
  • 00:02:30.000 --> 00:02:31.050
  • CHURCH.
  • 00:02:31.050 --> 00:02:32.090
  • James: SO THAT'S BEEN
  • 00:02:32.090 --> 00:02:33.120
  • PRETTY MUCH THE TERM.
  • 00:02:33.120 --> 00:02:34.230
  • AND CHRISTIAN CHURCH MEANT
  • 00:02:34.230 --> 00:02:35.250
  • ITS PART OF A CHRISTIAN GROUP.
  • 00:02:35.250 --> 00:02:37.070
  • Kyle: IT IS
  • 00:02:37.070 --> 00:02:38.130
  • A NON-DENOMINATIONAL CHURCH
  • 00:02:38.130 --> 00:02:39.150
  • SO A LOT OF DIFFERENT
  • 00:02:39.150 --> 00:02:40.200
  • BACKGROUNDS REPRESENTED THERE.
  • 00:02:40.200 --> 00:02:41.240
  • BUT JESUS IS THE FOUNDATION.
  • 00:02:41.240 --> 00:02:43.000
  • James: BUT YOU'RE ACTUALLY
  • 00:02:43.000 --> 00:02:44.040
  • CHRISTIANS; RIGHT?
  • 00:02:44.040 --> 00:02:45.080
  • Kyle: THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:02:45.080 --> 00:02:46.120
  • James: HOW UNUSUAL FOR
  • 00:02:46.120 --> 00:02:47.170
  • A RELIGIOUS CHURCH
  • 00:02:47.170 --> 00:02:48.190
  • TO BE CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:02:48.190 --> 00:02:49.210
  • AND THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:02:49.210 --> 00:02:50.220
  • YOU REALLY WANT.
  • 00:02:50.220 --> 00:02:51.250
  • I LOVE YOUR FORMER PASTOR.
  • 00:02:51.250 --> 00:02:52.290
  • I LOVE THE MAN WHO DISCIPLED
  • 00:02:52.290 --> 00:02:54.080
  • AND LOVED YOU AND SAW
  • 00:02:54.080 --> 00:02:55.250
  • YOUR POTENTIAL;
  • 00:02:55.250 --> 00:02:56.280
  • PROBABLY SAW YOUR POTENTIAL
  • 00:02:56.280 --> 00:02:58.030
  • BEFORE YOU DID.
  • 00:02:58.030 --> 00:02:59.070
  • HE HELPED FAN IT AND
  • 00:02:59.070 --> 00:03:00.160
  • WE'VE TRIED TO ENCOURAGE IT.
  • 00:03:00.160 --> 00:03:01.210
  • LET'S CUT TO THE CHASE,
  • 00:03:01.210 --> 00:03:02.240
  • DON'T GIVE UP .
  • 00:03:02.240 --> 00:03:03.260
  • Kyle: AS A PASTOR I HAVE
  • 00:03:05.000 --> 00:03:05.290
  • TALKED TO, LIKE YOU,
  • 00:03:05.290 --> 00:03:07.140
  • THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE
  • 00:03:07.140 --> 00:03:08.220
  • IN ALL KINDS OF SITUATIONS.
  • 00:03:08.220 --> 00:03:10.120
  • AND I USUALLY, AFTER
  • 00:03:10.120 --> 00:03:11.220
  • I'LL PULL OUT MY PHONE
  • 00:03:13.200 --> 00:03:14.270
  • AND I'LL WRITE DOWN JUST
  • 00:03:14.270 --> 00:03:16.030
  • A COUPLE OF NOTES ABOUT
  • 00:03:16.030 --> 00:03:17.110
  • THAT CONVERSATION: WHAT THAT
  • 00:03:17.110 --> 00:03:18.150
  • PERSON IS GOING THROUGH,
  • 00:03:18.150 --> 00:03:19.210
  • HOW I PRAYED FOR HIM,
  • 00:03:19.210 --> 00:03:20.270
  • HOW I ENCOURAGED THEM,
  • 00:03:20.270 --> 00:03:22.190
  • JUST AS A REMINDER TO ME.
  • 00:03:22.190 --> 00:03:25.080
  • IN 2017, AT THE END
  • 00:03:25.080 --> 00:03:26.240
  • OF THAT YEAR I WENT THROUGH
  • 00:03:26.240 --> 00:03:28.160
  • ALL OF THOSE NOTES
  • 00:03:28.160 --> 00:03:30.060
  • AND JUST STARTED NOTICING
  • 00:03:30.060 --> 00:03:32.160
  • A VERY CLEAR THREAD.
  • 00:03:32.160 --> 00:03:34.110
  • THAT IT DIDN'T MATTER
  • 00:03:34.110 --> 00:03:35.170
  • WHAT THE SITUATION WAS,
  • 00:03:35.170 --> 00:03:36.240
  • IT COULD BE FAMILY,
  • 00:03:36.240 --> 00:03:38.080
  • COULD BE FINANCIAL,
  • 00:03:38.080 --> 00:03:39.170
  • IT COULD BE
  • 00:03:39.170 --> 00:03:40.190
  • A SPIRITUAL CRISIS,
  • 00:03:40.190 --> 00:03:41.220
  • A FAITH CRISIS OF SOME KIND,
  • 00:03:41.220 --> 00:03:43.060
  • CERTAINLY SUFFERING, BUT WHAT
  • 00:03:43.060 --> 00:03:45.100
  • EVERY PERSON REALLY NEEDED
  • 00:03:45.100 --> 00:03:48.000
  • WAS THIS COURAGE
  • 00:03:48.000 --> 00:03:50.160
  • TO NOT GIVE UP.
  • 00:03:50.160 --> 00:03:51.250
  • AND NOT AS A TRITE COMMENT OF,
  • 00:03:52.180 --> 00:03:55.180
  • "HEY, DON'T GIVE UP!"
  • 00:03:55.180 --> 00:03:56.270
  • WHERE YOU TRY TO PSYCH
  • 00:03:56.270 --> 00:03:58.080
  • YOURSELF UP WITH POSITIVE
  • 00:03:58.080 --> 00:03:59.230
  • SELF-TALK AND YOU LOOK
  • 00:03:59.230 --> 00:04:00.290
  • IN THE MIRROR WHILE
  • 00:04:00.290 --> 00:04:02.040
  • "EYE OF THE TIGER" IS
  • 00:04:02.040 --> 00:04:03.110
  • PLAYING IN THE BACKGROUND.
  • 00:04:03.110 --> 00:04:04.140
  • I CAN DO IT!
  • 00:04:04.140 --> 00:04:05.190
  • BECAUSE THAT GETS EXPOSED.
  • 00:04:05.190 --> 00:04:06.290
  • LIFE WILL SHOW YOU THAT
  • 00:04:06.290 --> 00:04:09.000
  • YOU NEED MORE THAN THAT.
  • 00:04:09.000 --> 00:04:10.180
  • BUT A "DON'T GIVE UP"
  • 00:04:10.180 --> 00:04:12.120
  • THAT IS BASED IN FAITH,
  • 00:04:12.120 --> 00:04:14.040
  • NOT CONFIDENCE IN OURSELVES
  • 00:04:14.040 --> 00:04:15.220
  • OR OUR STRENGTH BUT
  • 00:04:15.220 --> 00:04:17.010
  • CONFIDENCE IN GOD,
  • 00:04:17.010 --> 00:04:18.140
  • CONFIDENCE IN THE POWER
  • 00:04:18.140 --> 00:04:19.210
  • OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:04:19.210 --> 00:04:21.040
  • IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:04:21.040 --> 00:04:22.170
  • I'VE JUST SEEN THIS
  • 00:04:22.170 --> 00:04:23.290
  • AS A PASTOR TOO OFTEN.
  • 00:04:23.290 --> 00:04:25.110
  • WHEN PEOPLE ARE STRUGGLING
  • 00:04:25.110 --> 00:04:26.270
  • AND THEY FEEL LIKE GIVING UP,
  • 00:04:26.270 --> 00:04:28.140
  • WE ARE QUICK TO PUT AN ARM
  • 00:04:28.140 --> 00:04:30.230
  • AROUND THEM AND COMFORT THEM
  • 00:04:30.230 --> 00:04:31.280
  • BUT WHAT PEOPLE OFTEN NEED
  • 00:04:31.280 --> 00:04:33.270
  • THEY DON'T NECESSARILY
  • 00:04:35.080 --> 00:04:36.240
  • ALWAYS NEED SOMEONE TO SAY,
  • 00:04:36.240 --> 00:04:37.280
  • "I'M SO SORRY FOR WHAT
  • 00:04:37.280 --> 00:04:39.050
  • YOU'RE GOING THROUGH."
  • 00:04:39.050 --> 00:04:40.150
  • SOMETIMES WHAT WE NEED
  • 00:04:40.150 --> 00:04:41.190
  • GET BACK IN THE GAME.
  • 00:04:42.220 --> 00:04:43.230
  • THIS IS NOT THE TIME
  • 00:04:43.230 --> 00:04:44.240
  • TO STEP AWAY, THIS IS
  • 00:04:44.240 --> 00:04:45.260
  • THE TIME TO STEP IN."
  • 00:04:45.260 --> 00:04:47.020
  • WHEN THEY FAIL AND THEY,
  • 00:04:48.070 --> 00:04:49.100
  • LET'S SAY, GET KNOCKED DOWN
  • 00:04:49.100 --> 00:04:50.220
  • OR THEY STUMBLE THAT
  • 00:04:50.220 --> 00:04:52.110
  • THEY OFTENTIMES GET
  • 00:04:52.110 --> 00:04:53.150
  • DISHEARTENED AND A LOT
  • 00:04:53.150 --> 00:04:54.170
  • IS OVER THEIR OWN INADEQUACY
  • 00:04:56.000 --> 00:04:57.230
  • AND FAILURE, AND THAT
  • 00:04:57.230 --> 00:04:59.110
  • ADDS TO THE TENDENCY
  • 00:04:59.110 --> 00:05:00.210
  • TO GIVE UP, TO QUIT.
  • 00:05:00.210 --> 00:05:02.050
  • BECAUSE THE ACCUSER
  • 00:05:02.050 --> 00:05:04.060
  • IS TELLING THEM HOW
  • 00:05:04.060 --> 00:05:05.090
  • REALLY ROTTEN THEY ARE
  • 00:05:05.090 --> 00:05:06.140
  • AND THEY ALREADY FEEL ROTTEN
  • 00:05:06.140 --> 00:05:07.170
  • THAT THEY CAN'T SEEM TO HAVE
  • 00:05:07.170 --> 00:05:08.180
  • A GOOD RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:05:08.180 --> 00:05:09.230
  • OR EVEN A MEANINGFUL
  • 00:05:09.230 --> 00:05:10.290
  • POSITIVE CONVERSATION
  • 00:05:10.290 --> 00:05:12.040
  • THAT GOES FORWARD.
  • 00:05:12.040 --> 00:05:13.060
  • IT JUST LOOKS LIKE
  • 00:05:13.060 --> 00:05:14.110
  • IT TURNS INTO CONTENTION.
  • 00:05:14.110 --> 00:05:15.220
  • AND THEY HAVE A TENDENCY
  • 00:05:15.220 --> 00:05:17.110
  • TO GIVE UP BECAUSE
  • 00:05:17.110 --> 00:05:18.150
  • THEY FEEL BEAT DOWN.
  • 00:05:18.150 --> 00:05:20.190
  • THEY FEEL INEFFECTIVE
  • 00:05:20.190 --> 00:05:22.020
  • OR INADEQUATE AND THEY
  • 00:05:22.020 --> 00:05:23.140
  • KIND OF TEND TO CHECK OUT.
  • 00:05:23.140 --> 00:05:24.200
  • AND ONCE YOU GET
  • 00:05:24.200 --> 00:05:25.210
  • KNOCKED DOWN AND STAY DOWN
  • 00:05:25.210 --> 00:05:27.090
  • YOU'RE PRETTY WELL FINISHED.
  • 00:05:27.090 --> 00:05:29.020
  • DID YOU FIND THEM
  • 00:05:29.020 --> 00:05:30.090
  • BUYING INTO THAT?
  • 00:05:30.090 --> 00:05:31.160
  • AND SO YOU DECIDED TO TAKE OFF
  • 00:05:31.160 --> 00:05:32.270
  • AND ADDRESS IT BECAUSE
  • 00:05:32.270 --> 00:05:34.030
  • I'M GOING TO GO OVER
  • 00:05:34.030 --> 00:05:35.090
  • SOME OF THESE TITLES,
  • 00:05:35.090 --> 00:05:36.130
  • AND I KNOW YOU'RE GOING TO
  • 00:05:36.130 --> 00:05:37.190
  • WANT TO CAMP ON SOME OF THEM,
  • 00:05:37.190 --> 00:05:38.270
  • BUT WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE
  • 00:05:38.270 --> 00:05:40.000
  • IS THAT YOU LAID OUT A PLAN
  • 00:05:40.000 --> 00:05:42.140
  • TO SAY I'M GETTING UP.
  • 00:05:42.140 --> 00:05:44.130
  • I DON'T CARE HOW I GOT DOWN.
  • 00:05:44.130 --> 00:05:46.160
  • I DON'T CARE IF IT WAS ME,
  • 00:05:46.160 --> 00:05:48.140
  • I DON'T CARE IF IT WAS HER,
  • 00:05:48.140 --> 00:05:49.270
  • THEM, HIM, CIRCUMSTANCE,
  • 00:05:49.270 --> 00:05:52.090
  • WHATEVER, I'M DOWN,
  • 00:05:52.090 --> 00:05:54.100
  • AND YOU'RE SAYING
  • 00:05:54.100 --> 00:05:55.160
  • THAT'S NOT WHERE YOU STAY.
  • 00:05:55.160 --> 00:05:57.010
  • NOBODY WINS STAYING THERE;
  • 00:05:57.010 --> 00:05:58.080
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:05:58.080 --> 00:05:59.120
  • Kyle: THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:05:59.120 --> 00:06:01.130
  • IF YOU LOOK AT THE BIBLE
  • 00:06:01.130 --> 00:06:02.190
  • THERE IS A LOT OF EXAMPLES
  • 00:06:02.190 --> 00:06:04.000
  • DON'T GIVE UP, DON'T QUIT.
  • 00:06:06.270 --> 00:06:08.210
  • GALATIANS 6:9 SAYS
  • 00:06:08.210 --> 00:06:10.200
  • IF YOU DON'T QUIT, IN DUE TIME
  • 00:06:10.200 --> 00:06:12.000
  • IT DOESN'T GIVE A DATE ON THAT
  • 00:06:13.130 --> 00:06:14.280
  • LIKE IN DUE TIME DOESN'T
  • 00:06:14.280 --> 00:06:16.290
  • GIVE YOU SOMETHING YOU CAN
  • 00:06:16.290 --> 00:06:18.140
  • CIRCLE ON THE CALENDAR BUT
  • 00:06:18.140 --> 00:06:19.240
  • IN DUE TIME YOU WILL
  • 00:06:19.240 --> 00:06:20.290
  • REAP A HARVEST
  • 00:06:20.290 --> 00:06:22.030
  • IF YOU DON'T GIVE UP.
  • 00:06:22.030 --> 00:06:23.130
  • SO MY EXPERIENCE IS THAT
  • 00:06:23.130 --> 00:06:25.140
  • USUALLY YOU CAN TRACE
  • 00:06:25.140 --> 00:06:27.270
  • GIVING UP TO EITHER FATIGUE
  • 00:06:27.270 --> 00:06:29.250
  • OR JUST TIRED OR FAILURE.
  • 00:06:29.250 --> 00:06:32.070
  • YOU'VE BLOWN IT AND YOU THINK,
  • 00:06:32.070 --> 00:06:33.110
  • IT'S TOO LATE FOR ME NOW.
  • 00:06:33.110 --> 00:06:35.110
  • SO GOD'S GRACE GIVES US
  • 00:06:35.110 --> 00:06:37.270
  • THE ABILITY TO GET UP
  • 00:06:37.270 --> 00:06:39.120
  • AFTER FAILURE, AND GOD'S
  • 00:06:39.120 --> 00:06:40.200
  • STRENGTH AND POWER GIVES US
  • 00:06:40.200 --> 00:06:42.210
  • THE ABILITY TO GET UP WHEN
  • 00:06:42.210 --> 00:06:43.280
  • WE'RE TIRED AND WORN OUT.
  • 00:06:43.280 --> 00:06:45.090
  • James: DON'T YOU THINK
  • 00:06:45.090 --> 00:06:46.140
  • HE IS GIVING US A CHARGE
  • 00:06:46.140 --> 00:06:47.200
  • TO GIVE UP?
  • 00:06:47.200 --> 00:06:48.260
  • YOU KIND OF REFERENCED
  • 00:06:48.260 --> 00:06:49.270
  • SOME OF THOSE.
  • 00:06:49.270 --> 00:06:51.000
  • WHEN PAUL WAS WRITING TIMOTHY
  • 00:06:51.000 --> 00:06:52.070
  • IN THESE REALLY INTENSE DAYS,
  • 00:06:52.070 --> 00:06:53.170
  • "BE A GOOD SOLDIER
  • 00:06:53.170 --> 00:06:54.220
  • TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST."
  • 00:06:54.220 --> 00:06:55.250
  • AND TO THE EPHESIANS HE SAID,
  • 00:06:55.250 --> 00:06:57.010
  • "SUIT UP IN AN ARMOR"
  • 00:06:57.010 --> 00:06:58.070
  • LIKE YOU'RE GOING TO BATTLE
  • 00:06:58.070 --> 00:06:59.090
  • AGAINST FORCES THAT
  • 00:06:59.090 --> 00:07:00.140
  • ARE EVEN UNSEEN.
  • 00:07:00.140 --> 00:07:01.160
  • Kyle: AND THEN I GO THROUGH
  • 00:07:01.160 --> 00:07:02.230
  • HEBREWS 12 WHERE IT USES
  • 00:07:02.230 --> 00:07:04.000
  • THE METAPHOR OF RUNNING A RACE
  • 00:07:04.000 --> 00:07:05.060
  • AND SAYS, "SINCE WE'RE
  • 00:07:05.060 --> 00:07:06.230
  • SURROUNDED BY A GREAT CLOUD
  • 00:07:06.230 --> 00:07:08.030
  • OF WITNESSES, LET US RUN
  • 00:07:08.030 --> 00:07:09.120
  • THE RACE WITH PERSEVERANCE."
  • 00:07:09.120 --> 00:07:11.030
  • IT SAYS, "THE RACE
  • 00:07:11.030 --> 00:07:12.090
  • MARKED OUT FOR US."
  • 00:07:12.090 --> 00:07:13.190
  • SO MY RACE AND YOUR RACE,
  • 00:07:13.190 --> 00:07:14.250
  • THEY MAY BE DIFFERENT BUT
  • 00:07:14.250 --> 00:07:15.280
  • THEY'RE ALL GOING
  • 00:07:15.280 --> 00:07:17.020
  • TO HAVE OBSTACLES.
  • 00:07:17.020 --> 00:07:18.110
  • WE RUN THE RACE MARKED OUT
  • 00:07:18.110 --> 00:07:19.150
  • FOR US WITH PERSEVERANCE.
  • 00:07:19.150 --> 00:07:20.220
  • James: RANDY, WHAT DO YOU
  • 00:07:20.220 --> 00:07:22.000
  • THINK ABOUT WHEN YOU --
  • 00:07:22.000 --> 00:07:23.030
  • I KNOW YOU HAVE GREAT RESPECT,
  • 00:07:23.030 --> 00:07:24.080
  • ADMIRATION, APPRECIATION
  • 00:07:24.080 --> 00:07:25.130
  • FOR HIM AND I KNOW
  • 00:07:25.130 --> 00:07:26.160
  • YOU'RE A WRITER, YOU RECOGNIZE
  • 00:07:26.160 --> 00:07:27.250
  • REALLY EFFECTIVE WRITING.
  • 00:07:27.250 --> 00:07:29.010
  • WHAT GOES ON IN YOUR MIND
  • 00:07:29.010 --> 00:07:30.080
  • WHEN YOU JUST LOOK AT WHAT
  • 00:07:30.080 --> 00:07:31.160
  • KYLE IS SHARING AND SAYING?
  • 00:07:31.160 --> 00:07:33.090
  • Randy: I LOVE WHAT
  • 00:07:33.090 --> 00:07:34.150
  • THERE IS A PROVERB THAT
  • 00:07:35.220 --> 00:07:36.260
  • BASICALLY SAYS, "SUCCESS
  • 00:07:36.260 --> 00:07:37.260
  • OR FAILURE IS NOT MEASURED
  • 00:07:37.260 --> 00:07:39.030
  • BY HOW MANY TIMES
  • 00:07:39.030 --> 00:07:40.080
  • YOU'RE KNOCKED DOWN BUT
  • 00:07:40.080 --> 00:07:41.150
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:07:42.290 --> 00:07:44.180
  • I'M CURIOUS THOUGH
  • 00:07:44.180 --> 00:07:45.180
  • ABOUT THE TITLE.
  • 00:07:45.180 --> 00:07:46.230
  • YOU TOUCHED ON THIS
  • 00:07:46.230 --> 00:07:47.270
  • A MINUTE AGO.
  • 00:07:47.270 --> 00:07:48.290
  • WHEN YOU SAY DON'T GIVE UP ,
  • 00:07:48.290 --> 00:07:50.130
  • THE WORLD WILL KIND OF,
  • 00:07:50.130 --> 00:07:52.000
  • MAYBE THAT WOULD IMPLY
  • 00:07:52.000 --> 00:07:53.150
  • DON'T GIVE UP ON YOURSELF.
  • 00:07:53.150 --> 00:07:56.080
  • BUT ARE YOU SAYING
  • 00:07:56.080 --> 00:07:57.110
  • A LITTLE MORE?
  • 00:07:57.110 --> 00:07:58.180
  • BECAUSE SOMETIMES WE NEED
  • 00:07:58.180 --> 00:07:59.210
  • TO GIVE UP ON OURSELVES
  • 00:07:59.210 --> 00:08:00.260
  • IN SUBMISSION TO GOD
  • 00:08:00.260 --> 00:08:02.260
  • IN ORDER TO SUCCEED.
  • 00:08:02.260 --> 00:08:04.180
  • Kyle: YEAH! WE NEED
  • 00:08:04.180 --> 00:08:06.030
  • TO SURRENDER OURSELVES
  • 00:08:06.030 --> 00:08:07.260
  • SO THAT WE CAN FIND
  • 00:08:07.260 --> 00:08:09.070
  • HIS STRENGTH SO THAT
  • 00:08:09.070 --> 00:08:10.140
  • WE WON'T GIVE UP.
  • 00:08:10.140 --> 00:08:11.250
  • YEAH, THAT'S WHY IT HAS
  • 00:08:11.250 --> 00:08:13.030
  • TO BE ROOTED IN FAITH.
  • 00:08:13.030 --> 00:08:14.140
  • AS A PASTOR A NUMBER OF
  • 00:08:14.140 --> 00:08:15.170
  • YEARS AGO, I THINK PROBABLY
  • 00:08:15.170 --> 00:08:16.210
  • FOUR OR FIVE YEARS AGO
  • 00:08:16.210 --> 00:08:18.030
  • I GOT A CALL TO COME
  • 00:08:18.030 --> 00:08:19.120
  • TO THE HOSPITAL BECAUSE
  • 00:08:19.120 --> 00:08:21.000
  • WE HAD A YOUNG COUPLE
  • 00:08:21.000 --> 00:08:23.040
  • IN OUR CHURCH WHO WENT IN
  • 00:08:23.040 --> 00:08:25.150
  • TO HAVE THEIR FIRSTBORN
  • 00:08:25.150 --> 00:08:27.210
  • AND THE FAMILY HAD BEEN
  • 00:08:27.210 --> 00:08:29.120
  • CALLED TO GATHER.
  • 00:08:29.120 --> 00:08:30.190
  • IT WAS GOING TO BE A GREAT
  • 00:08:30.190 --> 00:08:31.270
  • CELEBRATION BUT THE BABY
  • 00:08:31.270 --> 00:08:33.070
  • WAS STILLBORN.
  • 00:08:33.070 --> 00:08:35.000
  • I WENT IN TO THE HOSPITAL
  • 00:08:35.000 --> 00:08:37.140
  • TO VISIT THEM AND TRY
  • 00:08:37.140 --> 00:08:38.220
  • AND ENCOURAGE THEM.
  • 00:08:38.220 --> 00:08:40.170
  • THE FIRST ROOM I WENT INTO
  • 00:08:40.170 --> 00:08:42.010
  • THE MOTHER WAS LYING
  • 00:08:42.010 --> 00:08:43.050
  • IN THE BED SURROUNDED BY
  • 00:08:43.050 --> 00:08:45.040
  • SOME FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
  • 00:08:45.040 --> 00:08:47.270
  • I WAS POINTED TO THE ROOM
  • 00:08:47.270 --> 00:08:49.090
  • NEXT DOOR WHERE THE FATHER
  • 00:08:49.090 --> 00:08:50.270
  • WAS IN A ROCKING CHAIR
  • 00:08:50.270 --> 00:08:52.280
  • HOLDING THE LIFELESS BODY
  • 00:08:52.280 --> 00:08:54.210
  • OF HIS BABY GIRL WRAPPED UP
  • 00:08:54.210 --> 00:08:56.050
  • IN A BLANKET,
  • 00:08:56.050 --> 00:08:57.150
  • IN A ROCKING CHAIR
  • 00:08:57.150 --> 00:08:58.250
  • SAYING GOOD-BYE.
  • 00:08:58.250 --> 00:09:00.160
  • YOU KNOW THERE IS JUST
  • 00:09:00.160 --> 00:09:01.210
  • NO WORDS TO SAY
  • 00:09:01.210 --> 00:09:03.030
  • IN THOSE MOMENTS.
  • 00:09:03.030 --> 00:09:04.100
  • I SAT WITH HIM FOR
  • 00:09:04.100 --> 00:09:05.160
  • A FEW MINUTES.
  • 00:09:05.160 --> 00:09:06.260
  • FOR HIM AND AS I WAS PRAYING,
  • 00:09:08.130 --> 00:09:10.160
  • IN THE ROOM NEXT DOOR
  • 00:09:10.160 --> 00:09:11.270
  • WHERE THE MOTHER/WIFE WAS
  • 00:09:11.270 --> 00:09:13.220
  • I STARTED TO HEAR THEM
  • 00:09:15.160 --> 00:09:17.240
  • SINGING, "HOW GREAT
  • 00:09:17.240 --> 00:09:19.190
  • IS OUR GOD."
  • 00:09:19.190 --> 00:09:21.280
  • I SAT THERE AND MY EARS
  • 00:09:21.280 --> 00:09:24.050
  • COULDN'T QUITE MAKE
  • 00:09:24.050 --> 00:09:25.140
  • SENSE OF IT.
  • 00:09:25.140 --> 00:09:26.250
  • AND THEY SANG IT
  • 00:09:26.250 --> 00:09:28.070
  • WITH MORE CONVICTION.
  • 00:09:28.070 --> 00:09:29.120
  • I DON'T THINK THEY KNEW
  • 00:09:29.120 --> 00:09:30.180
  • THE VERSES BECAUSE
  • 00:09:30.180 --> 00:09:31.240
  • THEY JUST KEPT SINGING
  • 00:09:31.240 --> 00:09:32.270
  • THE CHORUS, "HOW GREAT
  • 00:09:32.270 --> 00:09:34.020
  • IS OUR GOD!
  • 00:09:34.020 --> 00:09:35.090
  • HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD!
  • 00:09:35.090 --> 00:09:36.170
  • HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD."
  • 00:09:36.170 --> 00:09:39.070
  • I WAS STRUCK BY THE DIFFERENCE
  • 00:09:39.070 --> 00:09:41.200
  • FAITH MAKES IN NOT GIVING UP.
  • 00:09:41.200 --> 00:09:42.260
  • YOU CAN'T TALK YOURSELF
  • 00:09:42.260 --> 00:09:44.110
  • INTO THAT.
  • 00:09:44.110 --> 00:09:45.220
  • THAT DOESN'T COME FROM
  • 00:09:45.220 --> 00:09:46.280
  • AN INNER STRENGTH; THAT COMES
  • 00:09:46.280 --> 00:09:48.140
  • FROM SPIRITUAL STRENGTH.
  • 00:09:48.140 --> 00:09:50.140
  • THAT IS GOD-GIVEN POWER
  • 00:09:50.140 --> 00:09:52.070
  • IN A DESPERATE MOMENT.
  • 00:09:52.070 --> 00:09:54.040
  • I WALKED OUT OF
  • 00:09:54.040 --> 00:09:55.110
  • THE HOSPITAL ROOM TO GIVE
  • 00:09:55.110 --> 00:09:56.190
  • THE FAMILY SOME TIME AND
  • 00:09:56.190 --> 00:09:58.140
  • THERE WERE THREE NURSES
  • 00:09:58.140 --> 00:09:59.210
  • STANDING IN THE HALLWAY.
  • 00:09:59.210 --> 00:10:02.110
  • YOU COULD SEE IN THEIR EYES
  • 00:10:02.110 --> 00:10:04.280
  • -- WELL, TWO OF THEM WERE
  • 00:10:04.280 --> 00:10:06.220
  • NOT SURE WHAT TO MAKE
  • 00:10:06.220 --> 00:10:08.010
  • OF THE WHOLE THING.
  • 00:10:08.010 --> 00:10:09.100
  • BUT THERE WAS ONE OF THEM
  • 00:10:09.100 --> 00:10:10.240
  • WHO HAD THIS LOOK ON HER FACE.
  • 00:10:10.240 --> 00:10:12.120
  • WE LOOKED AT EACH OTHER
  • 00:10:12.120 --> 00:10:13.210
  • AND SHE KNEW THAT I KNEW
  • 00:10:13.210 --> 00:10:14.260
  • AND I KNEW THAT SHE KNEW
  • 00:10:14.260 --> 00:10:16.080
  • BECAUSE THAT'S GOD'S POWER.
  • 00:10:16.080 --> 00:10:17.260
  • THAT'S NOT SOMETHING YOU CAN
  • 00:10:17.260 --> 00:10:19.150
  • EXPLAIN OF HUMAN WILL.
  • 00:10:19.290 --> 00:10:22.290
  • James: WELL, WE HAVE
  • 00:10:22.290 --> 00:10:24.190
  • A PERSON LIVING IN US
  • 00:10:24.190 --> 00:10:26.260
  • THAT YOU CAN'T KEEP DOWN.
  • 00:10:26.260 --> 00:10:29.120
  • HE WALKS ON THE WATER.
  • 00:10:30.240 --> 00:10:32.290
  • THE GRAVE CAN'T HOLD HIM.
  • 00:10:32.290 --> 00:10:34.240
  • DEATH CAN'T HOLD HIM.
  • 00:10:34.240 --> 00:10:36.260
  • THERE IS NO POWER OF THE ENEMY
  • 00:10:36.260 --> 00:10:38.070
  • THAT POWER LIVES IN US.
  • 00:10:39.220 --> 00:10:42.010
  • WHEN WE SAY, " DON'T GIVE UP"
  • 00:10:42.010 --> 00:10:43.200
  • THAT'S A CHARGE.
  • 00:10:43.200 --> 00:10:45.120
  • DON'T STAY DOWN.
  • 00:10:45.120 --> 00:10:46.180
  • DON'T LET THE ENEMY PUT
  • 00:10:46.180 --> 00:10:47.210
  • HIS FOOT ON YOUR NECK,
  • 00:10:47.210 --> 00:10:48.240
  • PUT YOURS ON HIM.
  • 00:10:48.240 --> 00:10:49.280
  • WALK OVER HIM LIKE DUST
  • 00:10:49.280 --> 00:10:50.280
  • AND LIKE SERPENTS.
  • 00:10:50.280 --> 00:10:52.010
  • YOU CAN DO THAT.
  • 00:10:52.010 --> 00:10:53.030
  • I GIVE YOU THAT AUTHORITY
  • 00:10:53.030 --> 00:10:54.070
  • AND THAT POWER.
  • 00:10:54.070 --> 00:10:55.140
  • AND SO WHAT YOU'RE TELLING
  • 00:10:55.140 --> 00:10:56.180
  • PEOPLE TO DO RIGHT HERE
  • 00:10:56.180 --> 00:10:58.070
  • IS KEEP BELIEVING,
  • 00:10:58.070 --> 00:10:59.080
  • KEEP FIGHTING,
  • 00:10:59.080 --> 00:11:00.110
  • KEEP PERSPECTIVE.
  • 00:11:00.110 --> 00:11:01.240
  • BUT THEN YOU TOUCH ON
  • 00:11:01.240 --> 00:11:03.030
  • SOME THINGS AND YOU TALK
  • 00:11:03.030 --> 00:11:04.250
  • ABOUT THROW OFF WEIGHTS.
  • 00:11:04.250 --> 00:11:07.050
  • YOU SAY THROW OFF ANXIETY
  • 00:11:07.050 --> 00:11:10.030
  • AND BE UNLEASHED FROM LIES
  • 00:11:10.250 --> 00:11:13.250
  • AND UNTANGLED FROM UNBELIEF.
  • 00:11:13.250 --> 00:11:15.150
  • TOUCH ON THOSE A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:11:15.150 --> 00:11:17.130
  • Kyle: SOME OF THIS COMES
  • 00:11:17.130 --> 00:11:18.220
  • FROM HEBREWS 12 WHERE IT SAYS
  • 00:11:18.220 --> 00:11:20.090
  • TO "RUN THIS RACE WITH
  • 00:11:20.090 --> 00:11:21.180
  • PERSEVERANCE AND LET US
  • 00:11:21.180 --> 00:11:22.260
  • THROW OFF EVERYTHING
  • 00:11:22.260 --> 00:11:24.100
  • THAT HINDERS AND THE SIN
  • 00:11:24.100 --> 00:11:25.220
  • THAT SO EASILY ENTANGLES."
  • 00:11:25.220 --> 00:11:27.020
  • THAT WORD FOR HINDERS
  • 00:11:27.020 --> 00:11:28.090
  • IS ANY KIND OF WEIGHT,
  • 00:11:28.090 --> 00:11:29.100
  • JUST ANY KIND OF WEIGHT.
  • 00:11:29.100 --> 00:11:30.220
  • SO I'VE NOTICED CULTURALLY
  • 00:11:30.220 --> 00:11:32.090
  • THAT A WEIGHT THAT KEEPS
  • 00:11:32.090 --> 00:11:33.270
  • A LOT OF US BACK AND HOLDS
  • 00:11:33.270 --> 00:11:35.080
  • A LOT OF US DOWN IS ANXIETY.
  • 00:11:35.080 --> 00:11:37.040
  • THAT WE HAVE A HARD TIME
  • 00:11:37.040 --> 00:11:39.160
  • MOVING FORWARD.
  • 00:11:39.160 --> 00:11:40.210
  • WE'RE MORE LIKELY TO GIVE UP
  • 00:11:40.210 --> 00:11:41.290
  • WHEN WE ARE OVERWHELMED BY
  • 00:11:41.290 --> 00:11:44.110
  • JUST THE ANXIETIES OF LIFE.
  • 00:11:44.110 --> 00:11:45.290
  • I THINK THIS CULTURALLY
  • 00:11:45.290 --> 00:11:47.140
  • IS AN EPIDEMIC.
  • 00:11:47.140 --> 00:11:49.210
  • I'VE SEEN THIS IN OUR CHURCH
  • 00:11:49.210 --> 00:11:51.290
  • WHERE I PREACH.
  • 00:11:51.290 --> 00:11:53.280
  • IT IS A BIG DEAL.
  • 00:11:53.280 --> 00:11:55.200
  • SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT
  • 00:11:55.200 --> 00:11:56.250
  • I TALK ABOUT IN THAT BOOK
  • 00:11:56.250 --> 00:11:58.060
  • IS LEARNING, AS PETER SAYS,
  • 00:11:58.060 --> 00:11:59.100
  • TO CAST YOUR ANXIETIES
  • 00:11:59.100 --> 00:12:00.170
  • ON GOD; NOT TO CARRY
  • 00:12:00.170 --> 00:12:03.000
  • A WEIGHT THAT HE WANTS
  • 00:12:03.000 --> 00:12:04.030
  • TO CARRY FOR YOU.
  • 00:12:04.030 --> 00:12:05.260
  • ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT
  • 00:12:05.260 --> 00:12:07.040
  • HOW TO PRAY IN SUCH A WAY
  • 00:12:08.240 --> 00:12:11.030
  • THAT GIVES YOU PERSEVERANCE.
  • 00:12:11.030 --> 00:12:13.250
  • IT IS NOT TO DENY
  • 00:12:13.250 --> 00:12:15.070
  • LIKE THAT'S NOT FAITH.
  • 00:12:17.060 --> 00:12:19.010
  • FAITH IS NOT BELIEVING
  • 00:12:19.010 --> 00:12:20.180
  • THAT EVERYTHING IS GOING
  • 00:12:20.180 --> 00:12:22.280
  • TO WORK OUT THE WAY
  • 00:12:22.280 --> 00:12:24.030
  • I WANT IT TO.
  • 00:12:24.030 --> 00:12:25.090
  • FAITH IS A CONFIDENCE
  • 00:12:25.090 --> 00:12:26.130
  • IN WHO GOD IS
  • 00:12:26.130 --> 00:12:27.180
  • AND HIS FAITHFULNESS.
  • 00:12:27.180 --> 00:12:29.060
  • SO IF I CAN PRAY THAT WAY,
  • 00:12:29.060 --> 00:12:30.280
  • IF I CAN PRAY WITH
  • 00:12:30.280 --> 00:12:32.030
  • THE DETERMINATION OF PAUL
  • 00:12:32.030 --> 00:12:33.070
  • IN SECOND CORINTHIANS FOUR
  • 00:12:33.070 --> 00:12:34.110
  • THAT SAYS WE'RE CRUSHED.
  • 00:12:34.110 --> 00:12:35.140
  • WE ARE!
  • 00:12:35.140 --> 00:12:36.200
  • "WE'RE PRESSED BUT
  • 00:12:36.200 --> 00:12:37.240
  • WE ARE NOT CRUSHED.
  • 00:12:37.240 --> 00:12:39.050
  • WE ARE KNOCKED DOWN
  • 00:12:39.050 --> 00:12:40.050
  • BUT WE'RE NOT DESTROYED."
  • 00:12:40.050 --> 00:12:41.150
  • IF I CAN PRAY WITH THAT
  • 00:12:41.150 --> 00:12:42.170
  • KIND OF CONFIDENCE
  • 00:12:42.170 --> 00:12:43.250
  • THE ANXIETY WILL GO AWAY.
  • 00:12:43.250 --> 00:12:45.040
  • SO I'VE LEARNED TO PRAY
  • 00:12:45.040 --> 00:12:47.070
  • WITH PEOPLE IN SUCH A WAY
  • 00:12:47.070 --> 00:12:49.190
  • THAT THEY DON'T SPEND
  • 00:12:49.190 --> 00:12:52.030
  • ALL OF THEIR PRAYERS TELLING
  • 00:12:52.030 --> 00:12:54.250
  • GOD ABOUT THEIR ANXIETY
  • 00:12:54.250 --> 00:12:56.190
  • BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS.
  • 00:12:56.190 --> 00:12:58.200
  • I'M GOING THROUGH THIS
  • 00:12:58.200 --> 00:12:59.230
  • DIFFICULT TIME AND MY WHOLE
  • 00:12:59.230 --> 00:13:01.030
  • PRAYER IS ABOUT HOW DIFFICULT
  • 00:13:01.030 --> 00:13:02.120
  • MY LIFE IS, HOW HARD
  • 00:13:02.120 --> 00:13:03.130
  • MY CIRCUMSTANCES ARE,
  • 00:13:03.130 --> 00:13:05.040
  • AND I GET DONE PRAYING
  • 00:13:05.040 --> 00:13:06.070
  • AND I FEEL MORE ANXIOUS
  • 00:13:06.070 --> 00:13:07.090
  • I DID BEFORE.
  • 00:13:08.130 --> 00:13:09.210
  • IF YOU STUDY THE PSALMS
  • 00:13:09.210 --> 00:13:11.120
  • YOU'LL SEE THIS SWITCH,
  • 00:13:11.120 --> 00:13:13.170
  • THAT DAVID WILL FLIP
  • 00:13:13.170 --> 00:13:14.290
  • HE STARTS BY TELLING GOD
  • 00:13:16.100 --> 00:13:18.100
  • ABOUT HIS ANXIETIES
  • 00:13:18.100 --> 00:13:19.220
  • AND THEN HE STARTS TO TELL
  • 00:13:19.220 --> 00:13:21.010
  • HIS ANXIETIES ABOUT GOD.
  • 00:13:21.010 --> 00:13:22.180
  • AND THE FOCUS IS NOT ON
  • 00:13:22.180 --> 00:13:24.240
  • HOW HARD EVERYTHING IS
  • 00:13:24.240 --> 00:13:26.100
  • BUT ON HOW BIG GOD IS.
  • 00:13:26.100 --> 00:13:29.020
  • I'VE JUST LEARNED THAT
  • 00:13:29.020 --> 00:13:30.090
  • IF WE CAN TEACH PEOPLE
  • 00:13:30.090 --> 00:13:31.200
  • TO PRAY THAT WAY,
  • 00:13:31.200 --> 00:13:33.160
  • PERSEVERANCE, ENDURANCE,
  • 00:13:33.160 --> 00:13:34.250
  • AND STRENGTH WILL START
  • 00:13:34.250 --> 00:13:35.270
  • TO COME.
  • 00:13:35.270 --> 00:13:37.030
  • MOUNTAIN, ABLE TO LIFT US
  • 00:13:38.100 --> 00:13:39.180
  • OUT OF EVERY VALLEY
  • 00:13:39.180 --> 00:13:41.000
  • AND LITERALLY COMFORT US.
  • 00:13:41.000 --> 00:13:42.080
  • YOU SAY, "BE UNLEASHED
  • 00:13:42.080 --> 00:13:43.110
  • Kyle: SO AS A PASTOR WHEN
  • 00:13:44.230 --> 00:13:46.120
  • I TALK TO PEOPLE ABOUT
  • 00:13:46.120 --> 00:13:47.180
  • NOT GIVING UP, I JUST LEARNED
  • 00:13:47.180 --> 00:13:49.060
  • THAT OFTENTIMES THERE IS
  • 00:13:49.060 --> 00:13:50.100
  • A LIE THAT THEY HAVE
  • 00:13:50.100 --> 00:13:51.220
  • BELIEVED AND AS LONG AS
  • 00:13:51.220 --> 00:13:53.000
  • THEY BELIEVE THAT LIE
  • 00:13:53.000 --> 00:13:54.060
  • THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BE
  • 00:13:54.060 --> 00:13:55.100
  • ABLE TO ENDURE.
  • 00:13:55.100 --> 00:13:57.040
  • IF YOU WAKE UP EVERY MORNING
  • 00:13:57.040 --> 00:13:58.150
  • AND YOU'RE READING FROM
  • 00:13:58.150 --> 00:13:59.180
  • A SCRIPT FOR YOUR LIFE
  • 00:13:59.180 --> 00:14:00.280
  • AND THAT SCRIPT SAYS,
  • 00:14:00.280 --> 00:14:03.000
  • "YOU CAN'T DO THIS.
  • 00:14:03.000 --> 00:14:04.160
  • YOU DON'T HAVE WHAT IT TAKES."
  • 00:14:04.160 --> 00:14:06.280
  • OR "YOU DON'T NEED ANY HELP."
  • 00:14:06.280 --> 00:14:09.270
  • OR "GOD JUST WANTS YOU
  • 00:14:09.270 --> 00:14:11.080
  • TO BE HAPPY TODAY."
  • 00:14:11.080 --> 00:14:12.210
  • IF YOU READ FROM A SCRIPT
  • 00:14:12.210 --> 00:14:13.280
  • LIKE THAT, YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:14:13.280 --> 00:14:15.030
  • TO GIVE UP,
  • 00:14:15.030 --> 00:14:16.070
  • YOU'RE GOING TO QUIT.
  • 00:14:16.070 --> 00:14:17.140
  • SO IF YOU CAN IDENTIFY A LIE.
  • 00:14:17.140 --> 00:14:18.170
  • IF I COULD BE PERSONAL
  • 00:14:18.170 --> 00:14:20.000
  • ABOUT THIS FOR A MOMENT.
  • 00:14:20.000 --> 00:14:22.130
  • I STRUGGLED MAYBE FOUR
  • 00:14:22.130 --> 00:14:23.250
  • OR FIVE YEARS AGO IN MINISTRY
  • 00:14:23.250 --> 00:14:25.120
  • BECAUSE I WAS BELIEVING
  • 00:14:25.120 --> 00:14:26.210
  • A LIE THAT I DIDN'T
  • 00:14:26.210 --> 00:14:28.150
  • NEED HELP, THAT I SHOULD
  • 00:14:28.150 --> 00:14:30.000
  • HAVE THE ANSWERS,
  • 00:14:30.000 --> 00:14:31.190
  • I SHOULD BE STRONG ENOUGH,
  • 00:14:31.190 --> 00:14:33.010
  • I SHOULDN'T ASK PEOPLE
  • 00:14:33.010 --> 00:14:34.210
  • FOR HELP BECAUSE PEOPLE
  • 00:14:34.210 --> 00:14:35.250
  • CAME TO ME FOR HELP.
  • 00:14:35.250 --> 00:14:38.110
  • I WAS TIRED AND WORN OUT.
  • 00:14:38.110 --> 00:14:40.240
  • PEOPLE WERE BOTHERING ME
  • 00:14:40.240 --> 00:14:42.260
  • WHEN I USED TO LOVE
  • 00:14:42.260 --> 00:14:44.040
  • THOSE SAME PEOPLE.
  • 00:14:44.040 --> 00:14:46.140
  • I NEEDED TO RECOGNIZE THE LIE
  • 00:14:46.220 --> 00:14:49.220
  • THAT I WAS BELIEVING WHEN
  • 00:14:49.220 --> 00:14:51.220
  • I SAID I DON'T NEED HELP.
  • 00:14:51.220 --> 00:14:52.280
  • I DID NEED HELP.
  • 00:14:52.280 --> 00:14:54.090
  • AND ONE OF THE MOST
  • 00:14:54.090 --> 00:14:55.180
  • SPIRITUALLY SIGNIFICANT
  • 00:14:55.180 --> 00:14:56.250
  • MOMENTS FOR ME IS WHEN
  • 00:14:56.250 --> 00:14:58.010
  • I REALIZED IF I ASK SOMEBODY
  • 00:14:58.010 --> 00:15:00.050
  • FOR HELP, A LOT OF TIMES
  • 00:15:00.050 --> 00:15:01.210
  • THEY'LL HELP ME.
  • 00:15:01.210 --> 00:15:02.290
  • IF I SAY TO SOMEONE,
  • 00:15:02.290 --> 00:15:04.070
  • I'M DOING AS A HUSBAND,
  • 00:15:05.110 --> 00:15:06.250
  • AS A FATHER.
  • 00:15:06.250 --> 00:15:08.020
  • I'M NOT SURE WHAT TO DO
  • 00:15:08.020 --> 00:15:09.080
  • ABOUT THIS SITUATION;
  • 00:15:09.080 --> 00:15:10.120
  • WILL YOU HELP ME?"
  • 00:15:10.120 --> 00:15:11.150
  • I COULD HAVE BEEN HELPED
  • 00:15:14.060 --> 00:15:15.120
  • A LONG TIME BEFORE IF I WOULD
  • 00:15:15.120 --> 00:15:16.200
  • HAVE HUMBLED MYSELF ENOUGH
  • 00:15:16.200 --> 00:15:17.260
  • TO SAY, "WILL YOU HELP ME?"
  • 00:15:17.260 --> 00:15:19.090
  • BUT I WAS BELIEVING A LIE
  • 00:15:19.090 --> 00:15:20.280
  • THAT I SHOULDN'T NEED HELP.
  • 00:15:20.280 --> 00:15:23.070
  • James: WOULDN'T IT BE
  • 00:15:23.070 --> 00:15:24.120
  • WONDERFUL IF THE CHURCH WOULD
  • 00:15:24.120 --> 00:15:25.170
  • SEE HOW MUCH WE NEED TO MOVE
  • 00:15:25.170 --> 00:15:26.240
  • LIKE A COMMITTED, CONNECTED,
  • 00:15:26.240 --> 00:15:28.190
  • HEALTHY BODY SUBMITTED TO
  • 00:15:28.190 --> 00:15:30.210
  • THE ONE HEAD, JESUS
  • 00:15:30.210 --> 00:15:32.150
  • AND HIS HEART.
  • 00:15:32.150 --> 00:15:33.260
  • I SENSE THAT WHEN YOU'RE
  • 00:15:33.260 --> 00:15:35.100
  • TALKING ABOUT NOT GIVING UP
  • 00:15:35.100 --> 00:15:36.170
  • YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:15:36.170 --> 00:15:37.240
  • SUITING UP IN AN ARMOR,
  • 00:15:37.240 --> 00:15:39.070
  • RECOGNIZING THAT WE HAVE
  • 00:15:39.070 --> 00:15:40.170
  • MORE THAN A CONQUEROR
  • 00:15:40.170 --> 00:15:41.250
  • LIVING IN US, THEREFORE
  • 00:15:41.250 --> 00:15:42.290
  • WE CAN BE MORE THAN CONQUERORS
  • 00:15:42.290 --> 00:15:44.110
  • SUBMITTED TO THAT POWER.
  • 00:15:44.110 --> 00:15:46.040
  • I FEEL LIKE AS A PASTOR,
  • 00:15:46.040 --> 00:15:47.130
  • TEACHER, LEADER,
  • 00:15:47.130 --> 00:15:48.260
  • YOU'RE TAKING PEOPLE THROUGH
  • 00:15:48.260 --> 00:15:50.040
  • A SIMPLE JOURNEY TO LEARN
  • 00:15:50.040 --> 00:15:51.180
  • HOW TO SUIT UP SO
  • 00:15:51.180 --> 00:15:53.070
  • THEY DON'T HAVE TO LIVE DOWN,
  • 00:15:53.070 --> 00:15:55.110
  • DOWNTRODDEN, BEAT DOWN,
  • 00:15:55.110 --> 00:15:58.110
  • TRAMPLED ON BY THE ENEMY
  • 00:15:58.110 --> 00:15:59.240
  • BUT LIVE AS OVERCOMERS.
  • 00:15:59.240 --> 00:16:01.050
  • IS THAT YOUR GOAL?
  • 00:16:01.050 --> 00:16:02.080
  • Kyle: THAT'S RIGHT!
  • 00:16:02.080 --> 00:16:03.190
  • AND THAT FAITH IS WHAT MAKES
  • 00:16:03.190 --> 00:16:05.000
  • ALL THE DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:16:05.000 --> 00:16:06.090
  • PERSEVERANCE AND ENDURANCE
  • 00:16:06.090 --> 00:16:07.250
  • SHOULD COME TO CHRISTIANS
  • 00:16:07.250 --> 00:16:10.180
  • IN A WAY THAT NO ONE ELSE
  • 00:16:10.180 --> 00:16:12.110
  • CAN REALLY EXPERIENCE
  • 00:16:12.110 --> 00:16:13.200
  • BECAUSE OF THE FAITH WE HAVE.
  • 00:16:13.200 --> 00:16:14.290
  • WHEN I WAS A KID I WOULD GO
  • 00:16:14.290 --> 00:16:17.120
  • TO MY GRANDMOTHER'S HOUSE
  • 00:16:17.120 --> 00:16:18.250
  • AND SHE WOULD KEEP HER PUZZLES
  • 00:16:18.250 --> 00:16:20.250
  • IN A ZIPLOC BAG.
  • 00:16:20.250 --> 00:16:22.160
  • I'M NOT SURE WHY.
  • 00:16:22.160 --> 00:16:23.280
  • I THINK SHE WOULD HAVE SAID
  • 00:16:23.280 --> 00:16:25.040
  • IT HAD SOMETHING TO DO
  • 00:16:25.040 --> 00:16:26.110
  • WITH THE GREAT DEPRESSION
  • 00:16:26.110 --> 00:16:27.160
  • BUT I DIDN'T KNOW
  • 00:16:27.160 --> 00:16:28.210
  • WHAT THAT MEANT.
  • 00:16:28.210 --> 00:16:29.280
  • BUT ANYWAY, SHE WOULD WORK
  • 00:16:29.280 --> 00:16:31.000
  • THESE PUZZLES AND SHE WOULD
  • 00:16:31.000 --> 00:16:32.060
  • LEAVE THEM OUT AND THEN
  • 00:16:32.060 --> 00:16:33.090
  • WHEN SHE WAS DONE
  • 00:16:33.090 --> 00:16:34.150
  • SHE'D PUT THEM IN A ZIPLOC BAG
  • 00:16:34.150 --> 00:16:35.160
  • INSTEAD OF A BOX.
  • 00:16:35.160 --> 00:16:36.220
  • AS A KID WE DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:16:36.220 --> 00:16:37.270
  • ANYTHING TO DO AT HER HOUSE
  • 00:16:37.270 --> 00:16:39.010
  • SO WE'D GET THESE ZIPLOC BAG
  • 00:16:39.010 --> 00:16:40.140
  • PUZZLES AND WE'D DUMP THEM
  • 00:16:40.140 --> 00:16:41.240
  • OUT ON THE TABLE AND WE'D
  • 00:16:41.240 --> 00:16:43.020
  • TRY TO WORK THESE PUZZLES.
  • 00:16:43.020 --> 00:16:44.230
  • BUT TRYING TO PUT TOGETHER
  • 00:16:44.230 --> 00:16:46.020
  • A PUZZLE WHEN YOU DON'T HAVE
  • 00:16:46.020 --> 00:16:47.050
  • A PICTURE ON THE BOX
  • 00:16:47.050 --> 00:16:48.240
  • IS REALLY DIFFICULT.
  • 00:16:48.240 --> 00:16:50.100
  • SO YOU'D LIKE FORCE SOME
  • 00:16:50.100 --> 00:16:51.120
  • PIECES TOGETHER BUT
  • 00:16:51.120 --> 00:16:52.140
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT
  • 00:16:52.140 --> 00:16:53.170
  • THE PICTURE IS.
  • 00:16:53.170 --> 00:16:54.240
  • YOU DON'T KNOW IF IT IS
  • 00:16:54.240 --> 00:16:56.010
  • A SKYLINE OF CHICAGO
  • 00:16:56.010 --> 00:16:57.100
  • OR IF IT'S LIKE THREE CATS
  • 00:16:57.100 --> 00:16:59.220
  • WITH THAT LOOK OF ENTITLEMENT
  • 00:16:59.220 --> 00:17:01.000
  • THAT CATS HAVE.
  • 00:17:01.000 --> 00:17:02.050
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT
  • 00:17:02.050 --> 00:17:03.120
  • THAT PICTURE IS.
  • 00:17:03.120 --> 00:17:04.250
  • SO WE'D WORK AT IT
  • 00:17:04.250 --> 00:17:05.280
  • AND WORK AT IT AND THEN
  • 00:17:05.280 --> 00:17:07.020
  • WE'D ALWAYS QUIT.
  • 00:17:07.020 --> 00:17:08.100
  • I NEVER FINISHED A ZIPLOC BAG
  • 00:17:08.100 --> 00:17:09.190
  • PUZZLE BECAUSE I NEVER
  • 00:17:09.190 --> 00:17:10.230
  • HAD THE PICTURE.
  • 00:17:10.230 --> 00:17:12.090
  • SO FAITH ALLOWS US TO SAY,
  • 00:17:12.090 --> 00:17:14.160
  • I'M GOING TO KEEP AT THIS.
  • 00:17:14.160 --> 00:17:15.270
  • I'M GOING TO KEEP WORKING
  • 00:17:15.270 --> 00:17:17.000
  • AT THIS BECAUSE THERE IS
  • 00:17:17.000 --> 00:17:18.080
  • A PICTURE.
  • 00:17:18.080 --> 00:17:19.150
  • GOD KNOWS WHAT THE PICTURE IS.
  • 00:17:19.150 --> 00:17:20.240
  • I'M TRUSTING THAT HIS PICTURE
  • 00:17:20.240 --> 00:17:22.190
  • IS BETTER THAN THE PICTURE
  • 00:17:22.190 --> 00:17:23.220
  • I'VE GOT IN MY MIND.
  • 00:17:23.220 --> 00:17:24.290
  • SO I'M NOT GOING TO ZIP
  • 00:17:24.290 --> 00:17:26.030
  • THIS UP AND PUT IT AWAY
  • 00:17:26.030 --> 00:17:27.070
  • I'M GOING TO STICK WITH IT.
  • 00:17:27.070 --> 00:17:28.220
  • WHEN WE ARE LIVING IN FAITH,
  • 00:17:28.220 --> 00:17:30.150
  • WHEN WE ARE LIVING WITH
  • 00:17:30.150 --> 00:17:31.210
  • THE CONFIDENCE THAT GOD KNOWS
  • 00:17:31.210 --> 00:17:33.020
  • THE PICTURE ON THE BOX,
  • 00:17:33.020 --> 00:17:34.160
  • IT ALLOWS US TO KEEP WITH IT
  • 00:17:34.160 --> 00:17:36.060
  • EVEN WHEN A LOT OF THOSE
  • 00:17:36.060 --> 00:17:37.130
  • PIECES DON'T MAKE SENSE.
  • 00:17:37.130 --> 00:17:39.070
  • FAITH IS WHAT MAKES
  • 00:17:39.070 --> 00:17:40.140
  • THE DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:17:40.140 --> 00:17:41.190
  • James: DON'T YOU APPRECIATE
  • 00:17:41.190 --> 00:17:42.290
  • A PASTOR THAT
  • 00:17:42.290 --> 00:17:44.090

  • 00:17:44.090 --> 00:17:46.150
  • POWERFUL TRANSFORMING TRUTHS?
