  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:00:01.130 --> 00:00:06.290
  • I WILL LIFT MY EYES TO THINGS I SEE...
  • 00:00:07.010 --> 00:00:13.080
  • TO THE PROMISE IN YOUR VICTORY...
  • 00:00:13.100 --> 00:00:20.210
  • - SO I WANT TO CHALLENGE YOU, DON'T BE THAT
  • 00:00:20.230 --> 00:00:24.010
  • WANDERER ALL YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:00:24.030 --> 00:00:27.010
  • GO FIND YOUR TRIBE OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:00:27.030 --> 00:00:29.240
  • IF YOU'RE NOT GIVING COMMUNITY TO OTHER
  • 00:00:29.260 --> 00:00:31.100
  • PEOPLE, YOU'RE IN A WASTELAND.
  • 00:00:31.120 --> 00:00:32.230
  • GET OUT OF THERE.
  • 00:00:32.250 --> 00:00:34.260
  • THE UNKNOWN...
  • 00:00:34.280 --> 00:00:39.120
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:00:39.140 --> 00:00:41.090
  • - GOD WANTS US TO BE ABLE TO NAVIGATE IN THE
  • 00:00:41.110 --> 00:00:43.050
  • UNCERTAINTY, IN THE UNKNOWN, IN THE MYSTERY,
  • 00:00:43.070 --> 00:00:45.010
  • AND REFLECT TO ALL OF HUMANITY THAT WE DO NOT
  • 00:00:45.030 --> 00:00:47.030
  • NEED TO BE AFRAID OF THE DARK.
  • 00:00:47.050 --> 00:00:49.280
  • YOU WILL CALL ME AND I WILL GO...
  • 00:00:50.000 --> 00:00:54.230
  • INTO THE UNKNOWN...
  • 00:00:54.250 --> 00:00:59.220
  • - ERWIN MCMANUS: OUR THEME IS INTO THE
  • 00:00:59.240 --> 00:01:02.200
  • UNKNOWN, BUT WE REALLY DON'T LIKE THE UNKNOWN.
  • 00:01:02.220 --> 00:01:05.160
  • WE REALLY ACT LIKE WE LIKE THE UNKNOWN BUT WE
  • 00:01:05.180 --> 00:01:08.010
  • REALLY LIKE THE KNOWN.
  • 00:01:08.030 --> 00:01:10.050
  • SEE, I THINK WE WANT A PANORAMIC BIRD'S EYE VIEW
  • 00:01:10.070 --> 00:01:13.260
  • OF LIFE THAT GIVES US ALL THE STREETS AND AVENUES
  • 00:01:13.280 --> 00:01:16.270
  • AND LET'S US KNOW WHAT EXISTS RATHER THAN
  • 00:01:16.290 --> 00:01:20.000
  • WHAT'S HAPPENING.
  • 00:01:20.020 --> 00:01:22.000
  • I THINK A PART OF THE CHALLENGE IS THAT THE
  • 00:01:22.020 --> 00:01:24.260
  • WORLD IS BECOMING SO COMPLEX THAT WE KNOW LESS
  • 00:01:24.280 --> 00:01:27.230
  • AND LESS OR MAYBE WE KNOW MORE AND MORE AND MORE
  • 00:01:27.250 --> 00:01:30.020
  • BUT WE KNOW SO MUCH WE KNOW SO LITTLE.
  • 00:01:30.040 --> 00:01:33.240
  • BUT I NOTICE EVEN IN MY JOURNEY OF FAITH THAT
  • 00:01:33.260 --> 00:01:36.170
  • FAITH HAS BECOME MORE OF A CONCRETE THAN IT IS
  • 00:01:36.190 --> 00:01:39.270
  • AN ESSENCE.
  • 00:01:39.290 --> 00:01:44.160
  • FAITH IS ABOUT WHAT WE BELIEVE.
  • 00:01:44.180 --> 00:01:46.190
  • FAITH IS ABOUT WHAT WE KNOW.
  • 00:01:46.210 --> 00:01:48.220
  • IF YOU HAVE FAITH, YOU KNOW SOMETHING WHICH IS
  • 00:01:48.240 --> 00:01:51.200
  • KIND OF IRONIC BECAUSE IF YOU LOOK AT THE
  • 00:01:51.220 --> 00:01:53.180
  • SCRIPTURES FOR MORE THAN FIVE MINUTES YOU'LL BEGIN
  • 00:01:53.200 --> 00:01:56.280
  • TO REALIZE, NO, FAITH ACTUALLY DOESN'T ROOT YOU
  • 00:01:57.000 --> 00:01:59.090
  • IN THE KNOWN.
  • 00:01:59.110 --> 00:02:01.010
  • FAITH ROOTS YOU IN THE UNKNOWN.
  • 00:02:01.030 --> 00:02:03.080
  • IT DOESN'T MAKE YOU A CITIZEN OF THE KNOWN.
  • 00:02:03.100 --> 00:02:04.260
  • IT MAKES YOU A CITIZEN OF THE UNKNOWN, AND WHILE
  • 00:02:04.280 --> 00:02:07.120
  • THERE ARE THINGS WE CAN KNOW AND THINGS THAT WE
  • 00:02:07.140 --> 00:02:09.200
  • BELIEVE AND THINGS THAT WE CAN HOLD TRUE, THAT'S
  • 00:02:09.220 --> 00:02:11.160
  • NOT FAITH.
  • 00:02:11.180 --> 00:02:13.290
  • WHEN YOU COME TO KNOW SOMETHING THAT'S TRUE,
  • 00:02:14.010 --> 00:02:16.250
  • THAT'S NOT FAITH.
  • 00:02:16.270 --> 00:02:18.030
  • THAT'S CONVICTION.
  • 00:02:18.050 --> 00:02:19.270
  • AND I THINK MANY OF US CONFUSE FAITH
  • 00:02:19.290 --> 00:02:23.100
  • AND CONVICTION.
  • 00:02:23.120 --> 00:02:25.050
  • I HAVE CONVICTIONS ABOUT THINGS AND THOSE ARE THE
  • 00:02:25.070 --> 00:02:26.280
  • THINGS I'M ROOTED IN, BUT FAITH IS SOMETHING ELSE.
  • 00:02:27.000 --> 00:02:31.110
  • FAITH IS THAT INGREDIENT THAT PRESSES US
  • 00:02:31.130 --> 00:02:33.210
  • INTO MYSTERY.
  • 00:02:33.230 --> 00:02:35.260
  • IT PRESSES US INTO UNCERTAINTY.
  • 00:02:35.280 --> 00:02:38.250
  • I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS A YOUNG FOLLOWER OF CHRIST
  • 00:02:38.270 --> 00:02:41.130
  • PEOPLE TALKED TO ME ABOUT THE WILL OF GOD, AND THEY
  • 00:02:41.150 --> 00:02:44.270
  • WOULD TALK TO ME ABOUT THE WILL OF GOD AS IF GOD
  • 00:02:44.290 --> 00:02:46.290
  • DOWNLOADS A PLAN LIKE GOOGLE MAP.
  • 00:02:47.010 --> 00:02:49.170
  • AND HE TELLS YOU EXACTLY WHERE YOU ARE AND WHERE
  • 00:02:49.190 --> 00:02:52.180
  • YOU'RE GOING, AND IF YOU LISTEN CAREFULLY HE'LL
  • 00:02:52.200 --> 00:02:54.190
  • TELL YOU EXACTLY HOW TO GET THERE.
  • 00:02:54.210 --> 00:02:58.160
  • I DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY PICKED UP THEIR GOD APP
  • 00:02:58.180 --> 00:03:00.240
  • BUT I'VE NEVER FOUND THAT APP.
  • 00:03:00.260 --> 00:03:04.050
  • I HAVE NEVER FOUND AN APP WHERE GOD TELLS YOU WHERE
  • 00:03:04.070 --> 00:03:06.150
  • YOU ARE, WHERE YOU'RE GOING AND HOW EXACTLY TO
  • 00:03:06.170 --> 00:03:07.290
  • GET THERE.
  • 00:03:08.010 --> 00:03:09.130
  • IT'S MUCH MORE DYNAMIC.
  • 00:03:09.150 --> 00:03:10.180
  • IT'S WAYS ON STEROIDS.
  • 00:03:10.200 --> 00:03:13.240
  • IT'S A CONSTANT ADAPTATION AND CHANGE AND
  • 00:03:13.260 --> 00:03:16.210
  • ADJUSTMENT BECAUSE THE ENVIRONMENTS IN WHICH WE
  • 00:03:16.230 --> 00:03:19.000
  • LIVE ARE NOT STABLE.
  • 00:03:19.020 --> 00:03:22.100
  • THERE'S AN INCREDIBLE INSTABILITY IN
  • 00:03:22.120 --> 00:03:24.050
  • HUMAN HISTORY.
  • 00:03:24.070 --> 00:03:25.210
  • HAVE YOU NOTICED THAT?
  • 00:03:25.230 --> 00:03:27.140
  • THINGS HAPPEN ACROSS THE WORLD THAT ARE UNEXPECTED.
  • 00:03:27.160 --> 00:03:30.180
  • THE WORLD IS FLOODED WITH HURRICANES AND
  • 00:03:30.200 --> 00:03:32.190
  • EARTHQUAKES, WITH WARS AND VIOLENCE, WITH
  • 00:03:32.210 --> 00:03:34.230
  • TURBULENCE AND CHANGE.
  • 00:03:34.250 --> 00:03:38.050
  • AND WE KEEP WANTING GOD TO PLACE US IN THIS WORLD
  • 00:03:38.070 --> 00:03:42.170
  • ON AN ISLAND OF STABILITY AND CERTAINTY WHEN THE
  • 00:03:42.190 --> 00:03:46.100
  • WORLD IS UNSTABLE AND UNCERTAIN, AND WE HOPE
  • 00:03:46.120 --> 00:03:50.190
  • SOMEHOW THAT OUR STABILITY AND OUR
  • 00:03:50.210 --> 00:03:54.190
  • CERTAINTY WILL BE THE CONTRAST TO A WORLD THAT
  • 00:03:54.210 --> 00:03:58.010
  • IS UNSTABLE AND UNCERTAIN, AND IT'S
  • 00:03:58.030 --> 00:04:00.170
  • EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE THAT GOD CALLS US TO.
  • 00:04:00.190 --> 00:04:04.170
  • HE DOESN'T WANT US TO BE A CONTRAST TO THE REST OF
  • 00:04:04.190 --> 00:04:07.120
  • HUMANITY BECAUSE WE FOUND SOMEHOW THIS IMMOVABLE
  • 00:04:07.140 --> 00:04:09.180
  • ISLAND OF CHANGELESS EXISTENCE.
  • 00:04:09.200 --> 00:04:16.230
  • GOD WANTS US TO BE ABLE TO NAVIGATE AND TRAVEL IN
  • 00:04:16.250 --> 00:04:21.070
  • THE UNCERTAINTY, IN THE UNKNOWN, IN THE MYSTERY
  • 00:04:21.090 --> 00:04:24.040
  • AND REFLECT TO ALL OF HUMANITY THAT WE DO NOT
  • 00:04:24.060 --> 00:04:27.270
  • NEED TO BE AFRAID OF THE DARK BECAUSE THERE'S
  • 00:04:27.290 --> 00:04:31.240
  • SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL WAITING FOR US AHEAD.
  • 00:04:31.260 --> 00:04:35.110
  • THERE'S A PASSAGE OF SCRIPTURE THAT WAS GIVEN
  • 00:04:35.130 --> 00:04:38.190
  • TO ME YEARS AND YEARS AGO TO HELP ME UNDERSTAND THE
  • 00:04:38.210 --> 00:04:41.160
  • WILL OF GOD.
  • 00:04:41.180 --> 00:04:43.110
  • AND AFTER ALL IF WE'RE GOING TO NAVIGATE INTO
  • 00:04:43.130 --> 00:04:45.210
  • THE UNKNOWN, WE BETTER HAVE A SENSE OF GOD'S
  • 00:04:45.230 --> 00:04:49.120
  • WILL FOR US.
  • 00:04:49.140 --> 00:04:52.020
  • IT'S IN THE BOOK OF ACTS CHAPTER 16 BEGINNING
  • 00:04:52.040 --> 00:04:53.250
  • IN VERSE 6.
  • 00:04:53.270 --> 00:04:56.000
  • THIS IS PAUL AND HIS COMPANIONS ARE
  • 00:04:56.020 --> 00:04:57.280
  • TRAVELING TOGETHER.
  • 00:04:58.000 --> 00:04:59.290
  • IT SAYS, PAUL AND HIS COMPANIONS TRAVELED
  • 00:05:00.030 --> 00:05:03.260
  • THROUGHOUT THE REGION OF PHRYGIA AND GALATIA
  • 00:05:03.280 --> 00:05:06.270
  • HAVING BEEN KEPT BY THE HOLY SPIRIT FOR PREACHING
  • 00:05:06.290 --> 00:05:10.080
  • THE WORD IN THE PROVIDENCE OF ASIA.
  • 00:05:10.100 --> 00:05:12.050
  • WHEN THEY CAME TO THE BORDER OF MYSIA, THEY
  • 00:05:12.070 --> 00:05:14.040
  • TRIED TO ENTER BITHYNIA, BUT THE SPIRIT JESUS
  • 00:05:14.060 --> 00:05:15.270
  • WOULD NOT ALLOW THEM TO, SO THEY PASSED BY MYSIA
  • 00:05:15.290 --> 00:05:18.000
  • AND WENT DOWN TO TROAS.
  • 00:05:18.020 --> 00:05:19.250
  • DURING THE NIGHT, PAUL HAD A VISION OF A MAN OF
  • 00:05:19.270 --> 00:05:22.000
  • MACEDONIA STANDING AND BEGGING HIM, COME OVER TO
  • 00:05:22.020 --> 00:05:23.220
  • MACEDONIA AND HELP US.
  • 00:05:23.240 --> 00:05:26.120
  • AFTER PAUL HAD SEEN THE VISION, WE GOT READY AT
  • 00:05:26.140 --> 00:05:29.120
  • ONCE TO LEAVE FROM MACEDONIA CONCLUDING THAT
  • 00:05:29.140 --> 00:05:31.080
  • GOD HAD CALLED US TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THEM.
  • 00:05:31.100 --> 00:05:34.170
  • NOW, WHAT TO ME IS FASCINATING IS THAT WHEN
  • 00:05:34.190 --> 00:05:37.110
  • I FIRST WAS INTRODUCED TO THIS PARTICULAR MOMENT IN
  • 00:05:37.130 --> 00:05:39.210
  • THE LIFE OF PAUL THAT THE FOCUS WAS THE LAST PART
  • 00:05:39.230 --> 00:05:42.070
  • OF THIS PARTICULAR EXPERIENCE WHERE IT SAYS
  • 00:05:42.090 --> 00:05:44.180
  • THAT PAUL HAD A VISION OF A MAN IN MACEDONIA
  • 00:05:44.200 --> 00:05:47.120
  • STANDING AND BEGGING HIM, COME OVER TO MACEDONIA
  • 00:05:47.140 --> 00:05:48.200
  • AND HELP US.
  • 00:05:48.220 --> 00:05:51.280
  • AND THE ENTIRE NARRATIVE THIS PASSAGE WAS YOU NEED
  • 00:05:52.000 --> 00:05:55.110
  • TO HEAR GOD CALL YOU TO YOUR MACEDONIA.
  • 00:05:55.130 --> 00:06:00.050
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW EXACTLY WHERE YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO GO.
  • 00:06:00.070 --> 00:06:02.070
  • THAT'S HOW CERTAIN YOU CAN BE ABOUT GOD'S
  • 00:06:02.090 --> 00:06:04.210
  • INTENTION FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:06:04.240 --> 00:06:06.280
  • THAT'S HOW YOU DEAL WITH THE FUTURE, THE
  • 00:06:07.000 --> 00:06:08.220
  • UNCERTAINTY OF TOMORROW.
  • 00:06:08.240 --> 00:06:10.210
  • YOU FIND THAT CALLING AND YOU MOVE THERE, AND THEN
  • 00:06:10.230 --> 00:06:13.170
  • YOU KNOW, EXCEPT IT'S THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF
  • 00:06:13.190 --> 00:06:17.130
  • EVERYTHING THIS MOMENT IS LETTING US KNOW.
  • 00:06:17.150 --> 00:06:22.200
  • IT'S UNWRAPPING FOR US HOW REAL LIFE HAPPENS.
  • 00:06:22.220 --> 00:06:28.010
  • BUT I THINK IT'S INTERESTING THAT WE'RE
  • 00:06:28.030 --> 00:06:30.220
  • DRAWN TO THE MOMENT WHERE WE KNOW WE'RE NOT DRAWN
  • 00:06:30.240 --> 00:06:33.060
  • TO THE MOMENTS WHERE THEY DID NOT KNOW.
  • 00:06:33.080 --> 00:06:35.150
  • SO I WANT YOU TO HEAR AGAIN EVERYTHING THEY DID
  • 00:06:35.170 --> 00:06:37.250
  • NOT KNOW HOW THEY WERE TRAVELING INTO THE UNKNOWN.
  • 00:06:37.270 --> 00:06:41.010
  • PAUL AND HIS COMPANIONS TRAVELED THROUGHOUT THE
  • 00:06:41.030 --> 00:06:45.230
  • REGION OF PHRYGIA AND GALATIA HAVING BEEN KEPT
  • 00:06:45.250 --> 00:06:49.090
  • BY THE HOLY SPIRIT FROM PREACHING THE WORD TO THE
  • 00:06:49.110 --> 00:06:51.070
  • PROVINCE OF ASIA.
  • 00:06:51.090 --> 00:06:53.110
  • AND THEY CAME TO THE BORDER OF MYSIA THEY
  • 00:06:53.130 --> 00:06:55.190
  • TRIED TO ENTER BIGOT IN I CAN'T BUT THE SPIRIT OF
  • 00:06:55.210 --> 00:06:57.200
  • JESUS WOULDN'T ALLOW THEM TO GO THERE.
  • 00:06:57.220 --> 00:06:59.180
  • SO THEY PASSED BY MYSIA AND WENT DOWN TO TROAS.
  • 00:06:59.200 --> 00:07:02.000
  • I'M LOSING MY BREATH.
  • 00:07:02.020 --> 00:07:04.090
  • THEY'RE GOING SOME PLACES THAT THEY'RE NOT SUPPOSED
  • 00:07:04.110 --> 00:07:06.160
  • TO GO.
  • 00:07:06.180 --> 00:07:09.210
  • AND IF YOU'RE GOING TO GO INTO THE UNKNOWN, IF
  • 00:07:09.230 --> 00:07:13.080
  • YOU'RE GOING TO LEAVE THAT SPACE OF CERTAINTY
  • 00:07:13.100 --> 00:07:15.200
  • AND SECURITY AND ACTUALLY STEP INTO A MYSTERY THAT
  • 00:07:15.220 --> 00:07:18.280
  • GOD CALLS YOU INTO THERE'S SOMETHING THINGS
  • 00:07:19.000 --> 00:07:22.030
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IT.
  • 00:07:22.050 --> 00:07:23.270
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW SOME THINGS ABOUT THE UNKNOWN,
  • 00:07:23.290 --> 00:07:26.110
  • THAT IF YOU CHOOSE TO GO INTO THE UNKNOWN, YOU'RE
  • 00:07:26.130 --> 00:07:28.250
  • NOT GOING TO NOWHERE YOU'RE GOING.
  • 00:07:28.270 --> 00:07:31.160
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:07:31.180 --> 00:07:33.100
  • EVERYBODY SAYS I DON'T WANT TO GO INTO
  • 00:07:33.120 --> 00:07:34.270
  • THE UNKNOWN.
  • 00:07:34.290 --> 00:07:36.090
  • JUST TELL ME WHERE IT IS, AND I'LL GO THERE.
  • 00:07:36.110 --> 00:07:38.020
  • SHOW ME THE UNKNOWN ON GOOGLE MAPS OR WAYS AND
  • 00:07:38.040 --> 00:07:39.160
  • I'M ON MY WAY.
  • 00:07:39.180 --> 00:07:41.160
  • BUT THE MOMENT YOU REALIZE THAT THE UNKNOWN
  • 00:07:41.180 --> 00:07:44.130
  • IS IN AN UNKNOWN LOCATION, WE START
  • 00:07:44.150 --> 00:07:47.250
  • PULLING BACK.
  • 00:07:47.270 --> 00:07:50.070
  • AND HERE YOU HAVE PAUL, PAUL, THE APOSTLE PAUL,
  • 00:07:50.090 --> 00:07:54.140
  • THE MAN CONFRONTED, ARRESTED BY JESUS, THE
  • 00:07:54.160 --> 00:07:56.270
  • MAN THAT JESUS CHOSE AS AN APOSTLE EVEN THOUGH
  • 00:07:56.290 --> 00:07:59.160
  • THE APOSTLES DID NOT WANT HIM TO BE INCLUDED, PAUL
  • 00:07:59.180 --> 00:08:02.060
  • WHO PERSECUTED THE CHURCH AND NOW
  • 00:08:02.080 --> 00:08:06.080
  • PROCLAIMED JESUS, PAUL.
  • 00:08:06.100 --> 00:08:08.210
  • IF ANYONE SHOULD HAVE KNOWN GOD'S WILL, IT
  • 00:08:08.230 --> 00:08:11.090
  • WOULD BE PAUL.
  • 00:08:11.110 --> 00:08:13.260
  • HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT GOD'S WILL FOR YOUR
  • 00:08:13.280 --> 00:08:15.230
  • LIFE WAS?
  • 00:08:15.250 --> 00:08:18.130
  • ISN'T IT AT LEAST A LITTLE BIT OF A
  • 00:08:18.150 --> 00:08:20.090
  • CONSOLATION TO GO WELL, I'M NOT PAUL?
  • 00:08:20.110 --> 00:08:23.220
  • SEE, I'VE BEEN MARRIED FOR 34 YEARS.
  • 00:08:23.240 --> 00:08:25.150
  • I CANNOT, I CANNOT IN ANYWAY HIDE FROM MY WIFE
  • 00:08:25.170 --> 00:08:29.000
  • THE FACT THAT THERE'S SO MANY THINGS I
  • 00:08:29.020 --> 00:08:31.000
  • DO NOT KNOW.
  • 00:08:31.020 --> 00:08:33.050
  • SHE ALREADY KNEW THAT WHEN WE GOT MARRIED, BUT
  • 00:08:33.070 --> 00:08:35.160
  • AFTER 34 YEARS SHE HAS YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS
  • 00:08:35.180 --> 00:08:37.150
  • OF EVIDENCE THAT I DON'T KNOW A LOT
  • 00:08:37.170 --> 00:08:40.130
  • OF THINGS.
  • 00:08:40.150 --> 00:08:42.120
  • AND WHEN WE WERE FIRST WORKING TOGETHER WORKING
  • 00:08:42.140 --> 00:08:45.080
  • IN MINISTRY TOGETHER FIRST HERE IN LA AND
  • 00:08:45.100 --> 00:08:47.110
  • DOING ALL THIS WORK THAT NOW HAS BECOME MOSAIC, I
  • 00:08:47.130 --> 00:08:49.130
  • WOULD JUST OPENLY SAY WHEN PEOPLE WOULD ASK ME
  • 00:08:49.150 --> 00:08:51.260
  • WHAT DO YOU THINK GOD WANTS US TO DO, I'D GO I
  • 00:08:51.280 --> 00:08:53.250
  • DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:08:53.270 --> 00:08:55.180
  • YEAH, BUT YOU'RE THE PASTOR.
  • 00:08:55.200 --> 00:08:57.260
  • YOU'RE OUR LEADER.
  • 00:08:57.280 --> 00:08:59.170
  • TELL US WHAT DOES GOD WANT US TO DO.
  • 00:08:59.190 --> 00:09:00.250
  • AND I'D GO, I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:09:00.270 --> 00:09:02.140
  • AND KIM USED TO TELL ME STOP TELLING ME
  • 00:09:02.160 --> 00:09:03.220
  • YOU DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:09:03.240 --> 00:09:06.200
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:09:06.220 --> 00:09:08.120
  • I SAID BUT I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:09:08.140 --> 00:09:10.060
  • SHE SAID, I DON'T CARE IF YOU DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:09:10.080 --> 00:09:11.260
  • I CARE THAT THEY KNOW YOU DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:09:11.280 --> 00:09:13.200
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:09:13.220 --> 00:09:15.040
  • STOP TELLING THEM YOU DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:09:15.060 --> 00:09:17.060
  • AND WE WERE ONCE IN A LEADERSHIP MEETING, AN
  • 00:09:17.080 --> 00:09:19.050
  • ENGINEER, SHE WAS MARRIED TO AN ENGINEER, I DON'T
  • 00:09:19.070 --> 00:09:21.060
  • KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE FOR 2 ENGINEERS TO BE MARRIED
  • 00:09:21.080 --> 00:09:22.250
  • TO EACH OTHER.
  • 00:09:22.270 --> 00:09:24.210
  • THEY HAVE ENGINEERING CONVERSATIONS.
  • 00:09:24.230 --> 00:09:26.170
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:09:26.190 --> 00:09:29.110
  • AND THE HUSBAND STOOD UP, AND THE ENGINEER SAID
  • 00:09:29.130 --> 00:09:31.190
  • JUST TELL US THAT THIS IS WHAT GOD IS CALLING US
  • 00:09:31.210 --> 00:09:35.170
  • TO, THIS IS WHAT GOD IS DOING, AND WE'LL
  • 00:09:35.190 --> 00:09:37.140
  • FOLLOW YOU.
  • 00:09:37.160 --> 00:09:39.150
  • AND I FELT SUCH OVERWHELMING TEMPTATION
  • 00:09:39.170 --> 00:09:42.150
  • TO LIE TO HIM AND SAY YES, I KNOW THIS IS
  • 00:09:42.170 --> 00:09:46.280
  • EXACTLY WHAT GOD WANTS US TO DO.
  • 00:09:47.000 --> 00:09:49.130
  • BUT I DIDN'T.
  • 00:09:49.150 --> 00:09:52.210
  • AND I REMEMBER HAVING TO LOOK AT HIM AND SAY I
  • 00:09:52.230 --> 00:09:55.050
  • HAVE NO IDEA IF THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT GOD WANTS
  • 00:09:55.070 --> 00:09:57.130
  • US TO DO.
  • 00:09:57.150 --> 00:09:58.240
  • I JUST THINK IT'S A REALLY GOOD IDEA.
  • 00:09:58.260 --> 00:10:00.150
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:10:00.170 --> 00:10:04.010
  • THAT HAS A SMALL CHANCE OF SUCCEEDING.
  • 00:10:04.030 --> 00:10:07.090
  • BUT WHAT I DO KNOW IS IF WE KEEP DOING WHAT WE'RE
  • 00:10:07.110 --> 00:10:10.070
  • DOING, WE'RE GOING TO DIE.
  • 00:10:10.090 --> 00:10:13.220
  • AND SINCE I COME FROM A ROMAN CATHOLIC
  • 00:10:13.240 --> 00:10:16.170
  • BACKGROUND, I CHOSE A PATRON SAINT BECAUSE I
  • 00:10:16.190 --> 00:10:19.100
  • NOTICED THIS ONE PLACE WHERE THERE WAS THE SON
  • 00:10:19.120 --> 00:10:22.020
  • OF KING SAUL NAMED JONATHAN, AND IN THE
  • 00:10:22.040 --> 00:10:25.060
  • MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT WHEN HIS FATHER REFUSED TO GO
  • 00:10:25.080 --> 00:10:27.160
  • TO WAR, HE WOKE UP HIS ARMOR BEARER AND HE SAID
  • 00:10:27.180 --> 00:10:29.270
  • TO THE ARMOR BEARER LET'S GO PICK A FIGHT WITH
  • 00:10:29.290 --> 00:10:32.170
  • THE PHILISTINES.
  • 00:10:32.190 --> 00:10:35.160
  • HE SAYS, PERHAPS THE LORD WILL BE WITH US.
  • 00:10:35.180 --> 00:10:39.040
  • I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:10:39.060 --> 00:10:40.170
  • MAN, THAT'S VISIONARY.
  • 00:10:40.190 --> 00:10:43.060
  • THAT EVOKES SO MUCH CONFIDENCE.
  • 00:10:43.080 --> 00:10:46.170
  • YOU AND ME, THE TWO OF US WITH ONE SWORD.
  • 00:10:46.190 --> 00:10:49.050
  • YOU CARRY UNTIL THERE'S DANGER.
  • 00:10:49.070 --> 00:10:51.050
  • UNTIL YOU GIVE IT TO ME.
  • 00:10:51.070 --> 00:10:53.040
  • THAT'S WHAT AN ARMOR BEARER DOES.
  • 00:10:53.060 --> 00:10:55.180
  • LET'S GO PICK A FIGHT WITH THE ENTIRE
  • 00:10:55.200 --> 00:10:58.120
  • PHILISTINE ARMY, AND MAYBE GOD WILL HELP US.
  • 00:10:58.140 --> 00:11:00.180
  • GOD HELP YOU.
  • 00:11:00.200 --> 00:11:02.220
  • HOW MANY OF YOU WOULD ACTUALLY FOLLOW SOMEONE
  • 00:11:02.240 --> 00:11:05.140
  • IF THEY LOOKED AT YOU AND SAID LET'S GO
  • 00:11:05.160 --> 00:11:08.270
  • PICK A FIGHT?
  • 00:11:08.290 --> 00:11:10.290
  • LET'S GO DOING SOMETHING WHERE FAILURE IS
  • 00:11:11.010 --> 00:11:13.260
  • GUARANTEED.
  • 00:11:13.280 --> 00:11:16.100
  • SEE, I'M GOING TO BE REALLY HONEST WITH YOU.
  • 00:11:16.120 --> 00:11:18.130
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE ASK, WELL, HOW HAS MOSAIC
  • 00:11:18.150 --> 00:11:20.080
  • HAPPENED?
  • 00:11:20.100 --> 00:11:22.210
  • HOW HAVE WE EXPERIENCED THIS BEAUTIFUL THING?
  • 00:11:22.230 --> 00:11:25.220
  • AND IT'S BECAUSE WE KNEW WHEN WE WENT INTO THE
  • 00:11:25.240 --> 00:11:28.280
  • UNKNOWN THAT WE WOULD NOT KNOW BECAUSE WE KNEW THAT
  • 00:11:29.000 --> 00:11:32.020
  • WE DID NOT KNOW.
  • 00:11:32.040 --> 00:11:34.020
  • WE DIDN'T PRETEND WE KNEW.
  • 00:11:34.040 --> 00:11:35.240
  • AND I'LL SAY THE SAME THING NOW THAT I SAID
  • 00:11:35.260 --> 00:11:38.290
  • THEN, YOU DON'T NEED TO KNOW AS MUCH AS PEOPLE
  • 00:11:39.010 --> 00:11:43.140
  • TELL YOU YOU NEED TO KNOW.
  • 00:11:43.160 --> 00:11:45.280
  • AND IF YOU'RE GOING TO GO INTO THE UNKNOWN, YOU
  • 00:11:46.000 --> 00:11:48.110
  • NEED TO KNOW THAT YOU'RE NOT GOING TO KNOW AND
  • 00:11:48.130 --> 00:11:50.140
  • THAT YOU'RE GOING TO GO SOMEPLACE WHERE NO ONE
  • 00:11:50.160 --> 00:11:52.080
  • HAS EVER GONE, AND ALL YOU'RE GOING TO BE
  • 00:11:52.100 --> 00:11:54.160
  • SURROUNDED WITH IS UNCERTAINTY, AND THAT'S
  • 00:11:54.180 --> 00:11:56.030
  • WHY FAITH MATTERS.
  • 00:11:56.050 --> 00:11:58.160
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:11:58.180 --> 00:12:04.200
  • SO HERE'S PAUL TRAVELING, AND HE THINKS HE'S
  • 00:12:04.220 --> 00:12:06.150
  • SUPPOSED TO GO TO GALATIA, BUT IT SAYS BUT
  • 00:12:06.170 --> 00:12:08.260
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT KEPT HIM FROM GOING TO THE
  • 00:12:08.280 --> 00:12:11.060
  • PROVINCE OF ASIA.
  • 00:12:11.080 --> 00:12:13.010
  • SO THEN HE TURNS AND GOES TO BITHYNIA AND
  • 00:12:13.030 --> 00:12:18.030
  • SAYS THE SPIRIT OF JESUS WILL NOW HAVE TO GO THERE.
  • 00:12:18.050 --> 00:12:21.160
  • SO I DON'T KNOW IF YOU GET THE PICTURE HERE.
  • 00:12:21.180 --> 00:12:23.160
  • PAUL IS SAYING THEY'RE IN A BOAT.
  • 00:12:23.180 --> 00:12:25.240
  • THEY GO, WHERE ARE WE GOING TO GO, PAUL?
  • 00:12:25.260 --> 00:12:28.060
  • HE SAYS, LET'S GO TO ASIA.
  • 00:12:28.080 --> 00:12:29.260
  • SO THEY SAIL TO ASIA.
  • 00:12:29.280 --> 00:12:31.100
  • AND THEN RIGHT WHEN THEY GET INTO THE ASIA IT SAYS
  • 00:12:31.120 --> 00:12:33.020
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT --I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS.
  • 00:12:33.040 --> 00:12:35.050
  • MAYBE THE HOLY SPIRIT IS TURNING THE WIND AND THE
  • 00:12:35.070 --> 00:12:36.160
  • SAILS ARE TURNING AND THE BOAT JUST STARTS TURNING
  • 00:12:36.180 --> 00:12:38.160
  • AROUND AND THEY'RE LIKE, ASIA! ASIA! BITHYNIA!
  • 00:12:38.180 --> 00:12:40.100
  • SO THEY START GOING TO BITHYNIA.
  • 00:12:40.120 --> 00:12:41.220
  • PAUL, WHERE DO WE GO?
  • 00:12:41.240 --> 00:12:43.160
  • WE'RE SUPPOSED TO GO TO BITHYNIA.
  • 00:12:43.180 --> 00:12:45.250
  • AND THEN IT SAYS THAT HE WAS TRYING TO GO TO BITHYNIA,
  • 00:12:45.270 --> 00:12:48.140
  • AND IT SAYS THE SPIRIT OF JESUS WOULD NOT
  • 00:12:48.160 --> 00:12:50.130
  • LET HIM GO THERE.
  • 00:12:50.150 --> 00:12:52.060
  • THE ENTIRE TRINITY WAS INVOLVED IN STOPPING PAUL
  • 00:12:52.080 --> 00:12:54.040
  • FROM GOING TO THE WRONG PLACE.
  • 00:12:54.060 --> 00:12:56.030
  • [LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]
  • 00:12:56.050 --> 00:13:01.120
  • AND THEN THEY'RE EXHAUSTED, SO THEY PULL
  • 00:13:01.140 --> 00:13:03.240
  • UP ON SHORE, AND HE GOES TO SLEEP.
  • 00:13:03.260 --> 00:13:06.220
  • I THINK THIS IS SORT OF A DIVINE COMEDY.
  • 00:13:06.240 --> 00:13:10.010
  • PAUL CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHAT GOD WANTS FOR HIS
  • 00:13:10.030 --> 00:13:12.130
  • LIFE WHILE HE'S AWAKE, SO GOD HAS TO PUT
  • 00:13:12.150 --> 00:13:15.010
  • HIM UNCONSCIOUS.
  • 00:13:15.030 --> 00:13:17.140
  • EXHAUST HIM.
  • 00:13:17.160 --> 00:13:19.100
  • MAYBE THEN HE'LL HEAR ME.
  • 00:13:19.120 --> 00:13:21.200
  • IF YOU'RE GOING TO GO INTO THE UNKNOWN, YOU
  • 00:13:21.220 --> 00:13:24.000
  • NEED TO KNOW THAT YOU WON'T KNOW WHERE
  • 00:13:24.020 --> 00:13:26.090
  • YOU'RE GOING.
  • 00:13:26.110 --> 00:13:27.270
  • BUT YOU NEED TO KNOW WHY YOU'RE GOING.
  • 00:13:27.290 --> 00:13:32.100
  • SEE, PAUL DIDN'T NOWHERE HE WAS GOING, AND YOU
  • 00:13:32.120 --> 00:13:35.020
  • KNOW WHAT'S AMAZING?
  • 00:13:35.040 --> 00:13:36.200
  • YOU WILL NOT LOSE LEADERSHIP CLOUT IF YOU
  • 00:13:36.220 --> 00:13:41.140
  • DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING.
  • 00:13:41.160 --> 00:13:46.040
  • YOU WILL LOSE LEADERSHIP CREDIBILITY IF YOU DON'T
  • 00:13:46.060 --> 00:13:49.060
  • KNOW WHY YOU'RE GOING.
  • 00:13:49.080 --> 00:13:53.220
  • I THINK A LOT OF TIMES WE TRY TO PRETEND WE KNOW
  • 00:13:53.240 --> 00:13:55.240
  • THE WHAT BECAUSE WE DO NOT KNOW THE WHY.
  • 00:13:55.260 --> 00:14:00.090
  • IN FACT, IF YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO, I CAN TELL YOU
  • 00:14:00.110 --> 00:14:03.190
  • SOMETHING, YOU'RE JUST DOING WHAT HAS ALREADY
  • 00:14:03.210 --> 00:14:06.100
  • BEEN DONE BECAUSE WHEN YOU GO INTO THE UNKNOWN,
  • 00:14:06.120 --> 00:14:11.100
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW YOU WILL NOT KNOW BUT YOU WANT TO
  • 00:14:11.120 --> 00:14:15.250
  • KNOW, AND YOU'RE ON A NEED TO KNOW BASIS.
  • 00:14:15.270 --> 00:14:19.110
  • BUT YOU'RE ALWAYS ON A NEED TO GO BASIS.
  • 00:14:19.130 --> 00:14:23.200
  • BECAUSE YOU NOT ONLY WILL NOT KNOW WHAT YOU WANT TO
  • 00:14:23.220 --> 00:14:27.060
  • KNOW, MUST KNOW WHY YOU NEED TO GO.
  • 00:14:27.080 --> 00:14:34.130
  • PAUL KNEW EXACTLY WHAT HIS LIFE WAS ABOUT.
  • 00:14:34.150 --> 00:14:39.100
  • HE KNEW WHAT WOKE HIM UP IN THE MORNING.
  • 00:14:39.120 --> 00:14:41.200
  • HE KNEW WHAT MOVED HIM.
  • 00:14:41.220 --> 00:14:43.190
  • HE KNEW WHAT STIRRED IN HIS HEART AND LIFE.
  • 00:14:43.210 --> 00:14:46.160
  • IT'S ALWAYS INTERESTED ME HOW WHEN YOU WRITE A BOOK
  • 00:14:46.180 --> 00:14:48.230
  • HOW CERTAIN PHRASES POP OUT, CERTAIN STATEMENTS
  • 00:14:48.250 --> 00:14:51.130
  • ARE PULLED OUT BY OTHERS THAT MAYBE WERE NOT EVEN
  • 00:14:51.150 --> 00:14:55.010
  • HIGHLIGHTED IN YOUR OWN HEART WHEN YOU WERE
  • 00:14:55.030 --> 00:14:57.030
  • WRITING THEM.
  • 00:14:57.050 --> 00:14:58.290
  • AND SO TO ME IT JUST STRUCK ME WHEN I SAW THE
  • 00:14:59.010 --> 00:15:02.030
  • WORDS THAT GOD'S WILL IS NOT A MAP BUT A MATCH,
  • 00:15:02.050 --> 00:15:06.190
  • THAT HE WILL SET YOU ON FIRE AND LIGHT THE WAY.
  • 00:15:06.210 --> 00:15:10.010
  • THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT PAUL WAS EXPERIENCING
  • 00:15:10.030 --> 00:15:14.160
  • IN HIS LIFE.
  • 00:15:14.180 --> 00:15:16.080
  • THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT GOD DID WITH PAUL.
  • 00:15:16.100 --> 00:15:18.080
  • THAT'S THE EXACT REASON WHY HIS COMPANIONS DID
  • 00:15:18.100 --> 00:15:20.050
  • NOT FAIL AT BIGOT IN I CAN'T, WHY THEY DIDN'T
  • 00:15:20.070 --> 00:15:21.260
  • PULL OUT AT MYSIA?
  • 00:15:21.280 --> 00:15:23.190
  • WHY THEY DIDN'T LEAVE HIM AT TROAS?
  • 00:15:23.210 --> 00:15:25.200
  • WHY THEY JUST KEPT GOING WITH HIM ALL THE WAY,
  • 00:15:25.220 --> 00:15:27.270
  • BECAUSE THEY KNEW WHY PAUL WAS GOING WHERE
  • 00:15:27.290 --> 00:15:29.140
  • HE WAS GOING.
  • 00:15:29.160 --> 00:15:30.260
  • THEY DIDN'T NOWHERE PAUL WAS GOING, AND PAUL
  • 00:15:30.280 --> 00:15:32.040
  • DIDN'T NOWHERE PAUL WAS GOING.
  • 00:15:32.060 --> 00:15:33.210
  • BUT IT DIDN'T STOP PAUL FROM GOING THERE.
  • 00:15:33.230 --> 00:15:35.270
  • YOU KNOW, THERE IS SOMETHING INCREDIBLE
  • 00:15:35.290 --> 00:15:37.210
  • ABOUT THE WAY GOD WORKS IN US.
  • 00:15:37.230 --> 00:15:40.220
  • YOU CANNOT SEE THE FUTURE GOD HAS FOR YOU WHEN
  • 00:15:40.240 --> 00:15:44.000
  • YOU'RE STANDING STILL.
  • 00:15:44.020 --> 00:15:46.090
  • THE FUTURE ONLY MATERIALIZES, IT ONLY
  • 00:15:46.110 --> 00:15:50.000
  • BECOMES VISIBLE WHEN YOU ARE IN MOTION.
  • 00:15:50.020 --> 00:15:54.020
  • PAUL DIDN'T SIT AROUND WAITING ON THE SHORE
  • 00:15:54.040 --> 00:15:56.010
  • GOING, GOD!
  • 00:15:56.030 --> 00:15:58.180
  • SHOULD I GO TO BITHYNIA?
  • 00:15:58.200 --> 00:16:00.090
  • SHOULD I GO TO ASIA?
  • 00:16:00.110 --> 00:16:01.200
  • SHOULD I GO TO MYSIA ?
  • 00:16:01.220 --> 00:16:03.020
  • WHERE EXACTLY SHOULD I GO?
  • 00:16:03.040 --> 00:16:05.040
  • SO MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE PARALYZED SAY I KEEP
  • 00:16:05.060 --> 00:16:07.070
  • WAITING FOR GOD TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO,
  • 00:16:07.090 --> 00:16:09.040
  • WHERE TO GO.
  • 00:16:09.060 --> 00:16:12.020
  • AND THE REASON YOU NEVER HEAR A WHAT OR A WHEN OR
  • 00:16:12.040 --> 00:16:14.190
  • A WHERE IS THAT YOU HAVE NEVER EMBRACED HIS WHY
  • 00:16:14.210 --> 00:16:17.140
  • FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:16:17.160 --> 00:16:19.260
  • SO PAUL GOT UP.
  • 00:16:19.280 --> 00:16:22.160
  • HE DID NOT KNOW.
  • 00:16:22.180 --> 00:16:24.040
  • LET'S JUST OWN IT, HE DID NOT KNOW WHERE TO GO.
  • 00:16:24.060 --> 00:16:27.150
  • HE JUST GOT UP AND WENT.
  • 00:16:27.170 --> 00:16:29.230
  • HE GOT IN THE BOAT, SAILED OUT, TOOK HIS
  • 00:16:29.250 --> 00:16:32.120
  • FRIENDS, SAID WE'RE GOING TO GO SOMEWHERE TO MAKE A
  • 00:16:32.140 --> 00:16:36.260
  • DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:16:36.280 --> 00:16:39.130
  • WE HAVE SOMETHING THE WORLD NEEDS.
  • 00:16:39.150 --> 00:16:41.120
  • WE HAVE LIFE, AND WE'RE GOING TO TAKE IT, AND
  • 00:16:41.140 --> 00:16:44.190
  • HERE'S A LITTLE CLUE THE WAY GOD RELATES TO US.
  • 00:16:44.210 --> 00:16:48.100
  • YOU ARE NOT MORE COMMITTED TO GOD'S WILL
  • 00:16:48.120 --> 00:16:50.100
  • FOR YOUR LIFE THAN GOD IS COMMITTED TO HIS WILL
  • 00:16:50.120 --> 00:16:52.050
  • FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:16:52.070 --> 00:16:53.220
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:16:53.240 --> 00:16:55.240
  • SO STOP ACTING LIKE YOU HAVE TO NEGOTIATE WITH
  • 00:16:55.260 --> 00:16:58.020
  • GOD AND WRESTLE FROM HIM HIS WILL FOR YOU.
  • 00:16:58.040 --> 00:17:01.230
  • GOD, WHY WON'T YOU TELL ME?
  • 00:17:01.250 --> 00:17:04.260
  • HAVE YOU EVER BEEN THERE?
  • 00:17:04.280 --> 00:17:06.260
  • AND GOD IS LIKE, MOVE!
  • 00:17:06.280 --> 00:17:08.220
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:17:08.240 --> 00:17:11.030
  • I CANNOT SPEAK TO YOU WHEN YOU'RE STANDING STILL.
  • 00:17:11.050 --> 00:17:14.010
  • I NEED YOU TO MOVE.
  • 00:17:14.030 --> 00:17:16.040
  • I NEED YOU TO ACT ON WHAT YOU KNOW.
  • 00:17:16.060 --> 00:17:18.250
  • GOD HAS AN AMAZING WAY OF UNWRAPPING WHAT WE NEED
  • 00:17:18.270 --> 00:17:22.070
  • TO KNOW AS WE ACT ON WHAT WE KNOW.
  • 00:17:22.090 --> 00:17:26.180
  • I DO THINK IT'S AMAZING THAT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE
  • 00:17:26.200 --> 00:17:32.140
  • NIGHT, PAUL HAS A VISION OF A MAN FROM MACEDONIA
  • 00:17:32.160 --> 00:17:35.140
  • BECAUSE IF YOU COULD NOT HAVE A MORE LINEAR
  • 00:17:35.160 --> 00:17:38.060
  • CONCRETE DREAM PAUL HAS A DREAM, AND THERE'S ONLY
  • 00:17:38.080 --> 00:17:41.160
  • ONE MAN IN THE DREAM.
  • 00:17:41.180 --> 00:17:43.210
  • IT'S ALMOST AS IF GOD IS LIKE OKAY, I DON'T WANT
  • 00:17:43.230 --> 00:17:45.120
  • TO CONFUSE YOU PAUL.
  • 00:17:45.140 --> 00:17:46.200
  • I'M JUST GOING TO PUT ONE PERSON IN YOUR DREAM.
  • 00:17:46.220 --> 00:17:48.090
  • AND THEN I'M GOING TO MAKE IT AS CONCRETE,
  • 00:17:48.110 --> 00:17:50.250
  • THERE'S NO METAPHOR HERE.
  • 00:17:50.270 --> 00:17:52.140
  • THERE'S NO JESUS PARABLE.
  • 00:17:52.160 --> 00:17:54.140
  • THIS IS JUST GOING TO BE STRAIGHT UP.
  • 00:17:54.160 --> 00:17:57.000
  • COME TO MACEDONIA AND HELP US.
  • 00:17:57.020 --> 00:18:02.170
  • AND I LOVE HOW LUKE TRANSLATES IT.
  • 00:18:02.190 --> 00:18:06.120
  • HE SAYS, AFTER THIS, WE CONCLUDED.
  • 00:18:06.140 --> 00:18:09.080
  • THAT'S THE WORD THAT MEANS WE REASONED IN OUR
  • 00:18:09.100 --> 00:18:13.060
  • MINDS, WE CONCLUDED THAT GOD WAS CALLING US
  • 00:18:13.080 --> 00:18:15.160
  • TO GO THERE.
  • 00:18:15.180 --> 00:18:18.210
  • THERE'S SOMETHING POWERFUL THAT HAPPENS IN
  • 00:18:18.230 --> 00:18:20.170
  • THE UNKNOWN.
  • 00:18:20.190 --> 00:18:22.240
  • SEE, ONCE YOU'RE IN UNKNOWN, YOU'RE OUTSIDE
  • 00:18:22.260 --> 00:18:24.260
  • OF THE WORLD OF FACTS.
  • 00:18:24.280 --> 00:18:27.170
  • YOU ARE NOW IN THE WORLD OF FAITH.
  • 00:18:27.190 --> 00:18:30.170
  • ONCE YOU'RE IN THE UNKNOWN, YOU'RE OUT OF
  • 00:18:30.190 --> 00:18:33.120
  • THE WORLD OF THE VISIBLE AND YOU'RE IN THE WORLD
  • 00:18:33.140 --> 00:18:36.020
  • OF THE INVISIBLE.
  • 00:18:36.040 --> 00:18:39.030
  • ONCE YOU'RE IN THE UNKNOWN, YOU'RE OUT OF
  • 00:18:39.050 --> 00:18:41.050
  • THE WORLD OF THE MATERIAL AND YOU'RE IN THAT WORLD
  • 00:18:41.070 --> 00:18:43.170
  • WHERE ONLY THE VOICE OF GOD GUIDES YOU THROUGH TO
  • 00:18:43.190 --> 00:18:46.050
  • THE OTHER SIDE.
  • 00:18:46.070 --> 00:18:49.120
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE BEING SO CONNECTED TO GOD THAT HE
  • 00:18:49.140 --> 00:18:51.190
  • EVEN SPEAKS TO YOU IN YOUR DREAMS?
  • 00:18:51.210 --> 00:18:56.100
  • IN FACT, I'M CONVINCED HE DOES.
  • 00:18:56.120 --> 00:18:59.060
  • I COULDN'T READ THIS PASSAGE WITHOUT THINKING
  • 00:18:59.080 --> 00:19:02.250
  • ABOUT SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED TO ME 2 DAYS AGO.
  • 00:19:02.270 --> 00:19:05.230
  • I WAS HAVING A DREAM, AND MY DREAM WAS IN SPANISH
  • 00:19:05.250 --> 00:19:08.220
  • WHICH IS SORT OF CLOSE TO A NIGHTMARE.
  • 00:19:08.240 --> 00:19:12.030
  • I'M DREAMING IN SPANISH, BUT I DON'T HAVE THE
  • 00:19:12.050 --> 00:19:15.170
  • LANGUAGE, AND I'M SPEAKING AT THIS EVENT
  • 00:19:15.190 --> 00:19:18.170
  • AND THE THEME OF THE EVENT IN SPANISH WAS ONLY
  • 00:19:18.190 --> 00:19:21.030
  • HIM, AND I GET TO THE END OF THE TALK AND I RUN OUT
  • 00:19:21.050 --> 00:19:24.040
  • OF WORDS IN SPANISH.
  • 00:19:24.060 --> 00:19:26.200
  • I'M JUST OUT.
  • 00:19:26.220 --> 00:19:28.200
  • AND I LOOK BEHIND ME AND THERE ARE PEOPLE THERE,
  • 00:19:28.220 --> 00:19:31.140
  • AND THIS WOMAN SAYS, I KNOW HOW YOU SHOULD
  • 00:19:31.160 --> 00:19:33.190
  • FINISH IT IN SPANISH OF COURSE.
  • 00:19:33.210 --> 00:19:36.150
  • AND THEN I CAN TELL SHE WANTED ME TO LIKE JUST
  • 00:19:36.170 --> 00:19:38.200
  • GO ON A RUN.
  • 00:19:38.220 --> 00:19:40.080
  • SOLO GOD, ONLY HIM, ONLY HIM.
  • 00:19:40.100 --> 00:19:41.190
  • AND I WOKE UP AND I STARTED THINKING WHAT ARE
  • 00:19:41.210 --> 00:19:43.130
  • THINGS THAT ARE ONLY ABOUT GOD.
  • 00:19:43.150 --> 00:19:44.290
  • AND YOU KNOW HOW DREAMS SORT OF TRANSLATES YOU
  • 00:19:45.010 --> 00:19:46.200
  • FROM ONE MOMENT TO ANOTHER MOMENT?
  • 00:19:46.220 --> 00:19:48.110
  • AND NOW I'M OUT OF THERE AND I'M TALKING TO THESE
  • 00:19:48.130 --> 00:19:50.090
  • FOUR OR FIVE GUYS, AND THEY'RE SAYING, WHY
  • 00:19:50.110 --> 00:19:52.220
  • SHOULD WE BELIEVE IN GOD?
  • 00:19:52.240 --> 00:19:55.150
  • WHAT'S SOMETHING THAT WE DON'T KNOW ABOUT GOD THAT
  • 00:19:55.170 --> 00:19:57.260
  • WE SHOULD KNOW?
  • 00:19:57.280 --> 00:19:59.170
  • WHAT IS SOMETHING UNKNOWN ABOUT GOD?
  • 00:19:59.190 --> 00:20:01.170
  • AND SUDDENLY I'M HAVING THIS CONVERSATION, AND
  • 00:20:01.190 --> 00:20:03.180
  • I'M LIKE, DO YOU KNOW THAT GOD HAS MORE THAN
  • 00:20:03.200 --> 00:20:05.160
  • FIVE SENSES?
  • 00:20:05.180 --> 00:20:07.010
  • THAT GOD HAS AN INFINITE NUMBER OF SENSES.
  • 00:20:07.030 --> 00:20:08.290
  • THAT WE PROJECT ON GOD HE ONLY HAS FIVE SENSES
  • 00:20:09.010 --> 00:20:10.220
  • BECAUSE WE ONLY HAVE FIVE SENSES.
  • 00:20:10.240 --> 00:20:12.170
  • BUT GOD HAS SUCH A VAST EXPERIENCE OF BEAUTY AND
  • 00:20:12.190 --> 00:20:16.030
  • WONDER THAT HE NEEDS AN INFINITE NUMBER OF SENSES
  • 00:20:16.050 --> 00:20:18.240
  • TO ABSORB ALL THE BEAUTY THAT HE CREATES.
  • 00:20:18.260 --> 00:20:21.160
  • AND I SAID, IT'S LIKE THE OLFACTORY SENSES ABILITY
  • 00:20:21.180 --> 00:20:27.250
  • TO SMELL, THAT GOD CAN SMELL EVERY AROMA IN THE
  • 00:20:27.270 --> 00:20:30.040
  • UNIVERSE AT ONE TIME.
  • 00:20:30.060 --> 00:20:32.170
  • AND I'M THINKING THIS IN MY DREAM.
  • 00:20:32.190 --> 00:20:34.140
  • AND I WAKE UP AND I SAID TO HIM, HONEY, I HAD THE
  • 00:20:34.160 --> 00:20:36.070
  • STRANGEST DREAM.
  • 00:20:36.090 --> 00:20:38.030
  • I SAID IS THERE A WORD OLFACTORY?
  • 00:20:38.050 --> 00:20:40.260
  • IS THAT A REAL WORD?
  • 00:20:40.280 --> 00:20:42.090
  • SHE GOES, I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:20:42.110 --> 00:20:43.220
  • I DON'T THINK IT IS.
  • 00:20:43.240 --> 00:20:45.010
  • SHE SAID I'M NOT SURE.
  • 00:20:45.030 --> 00:20:46.160
  • SO I LOOKED IT UP AND THERE IT WAS IN THE
  • 00:20:46.180 --> 00:20:47.220
  • DICTIONARY, SENSE OF SMELL.
  • 00:20:47.240 --> 00:20:50.250
  • AND I'M SITTING HERE THINKING ABOUT HOW IN THE
  • 00:20:50.270 --> 00:20:53.000
  • DREAM I WAS ACTUALLY HAVING THOUGHTS ABOUT GOD
  • 00:20:53.020 --> 00:20:56.060
  • THAT I'VE NEVER HAD WHILE I WAS AWAKE.
  • 00:20:56.080 --> 00:20:59.160
  • AND THEN I'VE BEEN WONDERING EVER SINCE, IS
  • 00:20:59.180 --> 00:21:02.040
  • IT POSSIBLE THAT GOD HAS AN INFINITE NUMBER OF
  • 00:21:02.060 --> 00:21:04.130
  • SENSES AND THAT WHEN WE STEP OUT OF TIME AND
  • 00:21:04.150 --> 00:21:07.010
  • SPACE OUR SENSORY EXPERIENCE IS GOING TO
  • 00:21:07.030 --> 00:21:09.120
  • EXPLODE, AND WHAT WE EXPERIENCE NOW AS
  • 00:21:09.140 --> 00:21:12.020
  • PLEASURE WILL SEEM AS IF IT WAS BLAND AND MUNDANE
  • 00:21:12.040 --> 00:21:14.040
  • IN ETERNITY.
  • 00:21:14.060 --> 00:21:17.220
  • SEE, I WANT TO THROW OUT A POSSIBILITY THAT WE ARE
  • 00:21:17.240 --> 00:21:21.050
  • LIMITING WHAT GOD WANTS TO DO IN OUR LIFE, THE
  • 00:21:21.070 --> 00:21:24.050
  • EXPERIENCE HE WANTS TO TAKE US INTO BECAUSE WE
  • 00:21:24.070 --> 00:21:27.110
  • ARE SO SAFE IN THE KNOWN.
  • 00:21:27.130 --> 00:21:31.260
  • WHAT IF NOT AFTER WE DIE BUT NOW IN THIS MOMENT,
  • 00:21:31.280 --> 00:21:36.080
  • IN THIS TIME GOD TO MAKE US A SPECIES
  • 00:21:36.100 --> 00:21:39.090
  • IN THE UNKNOWN?
  • 00:21:39.110 --> 00:21:41.120
  • HE WANTS TO MAKE US HUMAN AGAIN WHERE WE EXPERIENCE
  • 00:21:41.140 --> 00:21:44.030
  • LIFE IN UNCERTAINTY AND MYSTERY.
  • 00:21:44.050 --> 00:21:46.210
  • WHAT ABOUT IF GOD WANTS TO PLACE US IN A PLACE
  • 00:21:46.230 --> 00:21:49.080
  • WHERE WE ARE SO CONNECTED TO THE INVISIBLE, TO THE
  • 00:21:49.100 --> 00:21:52.170
  • ETERNAL, TO THE TRANSCENDENT THAT THE
  • 00:21:52.190 --> 00:21:55.000
  • THINGS OF THIS WORLD PALE IN COMPARISON TO WHAT WE
  • 00:21:55.020 --> 00:21:57.260
  • CAN NOW SEE BECAUSE NOW IN THE UNKNOWN WE HAVE
  • 00:21:57.280 --> 00:22:00.140
  • NEW EYES TO SEE THE BEAUTY AND WONDER AND
  • 00:22:00.160 --> 00:22:03.110
  • MAJESTY AND GLORY OF THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE?
  • 00:22:03.130 --> 00:22:07.270
  • SO I WANT TO INVITE YOU TO TRAVEL WITH US INTO A
  • 00:22:07.290 --> 00:22:13.010
  • FUTURE YET IMAGINED, YET TO BE DISCOVERED, YET TO
  • 00:22:13.030 --> 00:22:18.150
  • BE CREATED.
  • 00:22:18.170 --> 00:22:20.260
  • BUT JESUS IS ALREADY THERE CALLING US, COME
  • 00:22:20.280 --> 00:22:26.080
  • INTO THE UNKNOWN.
  • 00:22:26.100 --> 00:22:29.060
  • FATHER, I THANK YOU THAT IN THIS ROOM THERE ARE
  • 00:22:29.080 --> 00:22:36.200
  • PIONEERS AND EXPLORERS AND DISCOVERERS WHO
  • 00:22:36.220 --> 00:22:42.260
  • WILL LEAVE THE SAFETY OF THE KNOWN AND CROSS THE
  • 00:22:42.280 --> 00:22:49.040
  • LINE INTO THE UNKNOWN, WHO WILL JOURNEY INTO THE
  • 00:22:49.060 --> 00:22:52.200
  • UNCERTAIN, INTO THE MYSTERY, INTO THE WONDER.
  • 00:22:52.220 --> 00:22:56.010
  • GOD, I PRAY THAT YOU WOULD GIVE US SUCH
  • 00:22:56.030 --> 00:22:57.260
  • COURAGE AND FAITH, THAT WE WOULD NOT NEED TO HIDE
  • 00:22:57.280 --> 00:23:01.030
  • IN THE SAFETY AND SECURITY OF WHAT WE HAVE,
  • 00:23:01.050 --> 00:23:03.200
  • OF WHAT WE KNOW, OF WHAT HAS BEEN.
  • 00:23:03.220 --> 00:23:06.150
  • GOD, SET US FREE FROM THE PAST.
  • 00:23:06.170 --> 00:23:10.170
  • SET US FREE FROM THE CERTAIN.
  • 00:23:10.190 --> 00:23:13.230
  • GOD, GIVE US THE COURAGE AND FAITH TO STEP INTO
  • 00:23:13.250 --> 00:23:18.050
  • THE DARKNESS AND BE THE LIGHT THAT THE REST OF
  • 00:23:18.070 --> 00:23:23.120
  • THE WORLD MIGHT FOLLOW US INTO A FUTURE THAT ONLY
  • 00:23:23.140 --> 00:23:29.030
  • YOU COULD IMAGINE.
  • 00:23:29.050 --> 00:23:32.180
  • I THANK YOU, JESUS, THAT THIS IS WHERE YOU LIVE.
  • 00:23:32.200 --> 00:23:39.130
  • ALL WE NEED TO KNOW IN THE UNKNOWN IS YOU.
  • 00:23:39.150 --> 00:23:44.100
  • WITH YOUR HEADS BOWED AND YOUR EYES CLOSED, IF
  • 00:23:44.120 --> 00:23:48.230
  • YOU'VE NOT YET INVITED JESUS INTO YOUR LIFE, IF
  • 00:23:48.250 --> 00:23:55.130
  • YOU'VE NOT YET CROSSED THAT LINE OF FAITH, MAYBE
  • 00:23:55.150 --> 00:23:59.140
  • YOU'VE BEEN AFRAID TO STEP ACROSS CROSS THAT
  • 00:23:59.160 --> 00:24:01.130
  • LINE INTO THE UNKNOWN, MAYBE GOD HAS BEEN
  • 00:24:01.150 --> 00:24:06.120
  • TERRIFYING AND YOU'VE BEEN CAUTIOUS, I WANT YOU
  • 00:24:06.140 --> 00:24:11.110
  • TO KNOW THAT JESUS STEPPED INTO HUMAN
  • 00:24:11.130 --> 00:24:13.100
  • HISTORY FOR YOU.
  • 00:24:13.120 --> 00:24:14.190
  • HE DIED ON THE CROSS FOR YOU.
  • 00:24:14.210 --> 00:24:16.030
  • HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD FOR YOU.
  • 00:24:16.050 --> 00:24:17.150
  • HE IS HERE RIGHT NOW FOR YOU.
  • 00:24:17.170 --> 00:24:20.170
  • THERE IS A FUTURE THAT IS UNKNOWN.
  • 00:24:20.190 --> 00:24:23.090
  • IT'S FILLED WITH UNCERTAINTY AND IT'S
  • 00:24:23.110 --> 00:24:26.050
  • FILLED WITH MYSTERY, AND YES, IT'S FILLED WITH
  • 00:24:26.070 --> 00:24:29.130
  • INSTABILITY, BUT I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT IF YOU
  • 00:24:29.150 --> 00:24:34.140
  • TRUST JESUS WITH YOUR LIFE, YOU WILL NEVER HAVE
  • 00:24:34.160 --> 00:24:37.000
  • TO WORRY ABOUT THE DARKNESS AHEAD, THE
  • 00:24:37.020 --> 00:24:39.200
  • UNCERTAINTY AHEAD, THE UNKNOWN AHEAD, BECAUSE
  • 00:24:39.220 --> 00:24:42.000
  • THAT WILL BE YOUR PLAYING GROUND.
  • 00:24:42.020 --> 00:24:44.230
  • SO IF YOU'RE HERE AND YOU'D LOVE TO KNOW THE

  • FROM PLACE TO PLACE TO PLACE TRYING
  • 00:35:12.180 --> 00:35:14.280
  • TO FIND WHERE I BELONG.
  • 00:35:15.000 --> 00:35:19.130
  • THAT WANDERER IS ALWAYS ASKING THE QUESTION
  • 00:35:19.150 --> 00:35:22.190
  • WHERE IS MY PEOPLE? WHERE IS MY TRIBE?
  • 00:35:22.210 --> 00:35:25.090
  • WHERE SHOULD I GO NEXT?
  • 00:35:25.110 --> 00:35:27.120
  • WHERE AM I GONNA END UP?
  • 00:35:27.140 --> 00:35:30.010
  • HAVE YOU EVER-- YOU ARE THAT WANDERER MAYBE.
  • 00:35:30.030 --> 00:35:32.230
  • THAT'S WHERE YOUR HEART IS.
  • 00:35:32.250 --> 00:35:34.200
  • WE GET A LOT OF WANDERERS AT MOSAIC.
  • 00:35:34.220 --> 00:35:36.170
  • THEY COME IN, THEY'RE SO EXCITED, UNTIL THEY
  • 00:35:36.190 --> 00:35:39.090
  • DON'T GET THE PARTS.
  • 00:35:39.110 --> 00:35:41.120
  • AND THEN THEY'RE NOT EXCITED ANYMORE ABOUT
  • 00:35:41.140 --> 00:35:43.020
  • BEING HERE IN L.A. AND THEY'RE JUST LIKE,
  • 00:35:43.040 --> 00:35:46.010
  • OH, WANDER ALL THE WAY THROUGH, AND SUDDENLY
  • 00:35:46.030 --> 00:35:47.250
  • THEY'RE CALLED TO NEW YORK CITY OR PORTLAND.
  • 00:35:47.270 --> 00:35:51.100
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:35:51.120 --> 00:35:54.110
  • THAT'S ANOTHER VERY FAMOUS CALL OF GOD DESTINATION.
  • 00:35:54.130 --> 00:35:57.270
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:35:57.290 --> 00:36:00.080
  • I'M THINKING OH WANDERER, OH WANDERER, WON'T YOU
  • 00:36:00.100 --> 00:36:04.110
  • STAY A WHILE AND PUT DOWN YOUR ROOTS BECAUSE THOSE
  • 00:36:04.130 --> 00:36:08.150
  • OF US WHO HAVE GONE THROUGH THE FIRE OF THIS
  • 00:36:08.170 --> 00:36:11.040
  • CITY, HAVE BEEN TESTED AND TRIED AT EVERY
  • 00:36:11.060 --> 00:36:14.050
  • FRONT IN THIS CITY, AND THE CITY IS OUT TO
  • 00:36:14.070 --> 00:36:17.070
  • KICK YOUR BUTT, RIGHT?
  • 00:36:17.090 --> 00:36:19.260
  • AND TEST YOU AT EVERY-- BUT THOSE OF US WHO HAVE
  • 00:36:19.280 --> 00:36:22.050
  • STAYED AND DUG IN, WE SEE THE FRUITS OF WHAT
  • 00:36:22.070 --> 00:36:25.030
  • STAYING HERE LOOKS LIKE.
  • 00:36:25.050 --> 00:36:27.230
  • AND SO WHETHER YOU'RE ON THE DES MOINES OR SOUTH
  • 00:36:27.250 --> 00:36:33.110
  • AFRICA, WHEREVER YOU ARE, MAKE THAT THE PLACE WHERE
  • 00:36:33.130 --> 00:36:38.010
  • YOU ARE AND THAT IS YOUR HOME, AND GOD WILL CALL
  • 00:36:38.030 --> 00:36:44.040
  • YOU INTO A PLACE.
  • 00:36:44.060 --> 00:36:45.280
  • HE SAYS I DON'T KNOW IF YOU KNOW HOW DESPERATE
  • 00:36:46.000 --> 00:36:49.140
  • WASTELANDS, DESERT WASTELANDS ARE.
  • 00:36:49.160 --> 00:36:52.030
  • WHAT DO THEY LOOK LIKE?
  • 00:36:52.050 --> 00:36:53.250
  • YOU COULD ASK YOURSELF AM I IN A WASTELAND?
  • 00:36:53.270 --> 00:36:56.180
  • AM I IN A WASTELAND?
  • 00:36:56.200 --> 00:36:58.110
  • ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS: IS THERE ANY LIFE WHERE
  • 00:36:58.130 --> 00:37:01.220
  • YOU ARE? IS THERE ANY LIFE?
  • 00:37:01.240 --> 00:37:05.050
  • IS THERE ANY LOSS, SUBSTANTIAL LOSS OF LIFE
  • 00:37:05.070 --> 00:37:09.180
  • WHERE YOU ARE?
  • 00:37:09.200 --> 00:37:11.150
  • BECAUSE THE SURVIVAL RATE IN A WASTELAND,
  • 00:37:11.170 --> 00:37:15.010
  • THE SURVIVAL RATE IS VERY LOW.
  • 00:37:15.030 --> 00:37:17.140
  • YOU'RE NOT GONNA MAKE IT FOR VERY MANY YEARS IF
  • 00:37:17.160 --> 00:37:20.010
  • YOU'RE IN THAT WASTELAND OF WHEREVER YOU ARE.
  • 00:37:20.030 --> 00:37:25.030
  • SO I WANT TO CHALLENGE YOU, DON'T BE THAT
  • 00:37:25.050 --> 00:37:28.010
  • WANDERER ALL YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:37:28.030 --> 00:37:30.070
  • GO FIND YOUR TRIBE OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:37:30.090 --> 00:37:32.090
  • AND IT SAYS SOME WANDERED IN DESERT WASTELANDS
  • 00:37:32.110 --> 00:37:35.080
  • FINDING NO WAY TO A CITY WHERE THEY COULD SETTLE.
  • 00:37:35.100 --> 00:37:39.190
  • IT DOESN'T MEAN LIKE SETTLE.
  • 00:37:39.210 --> 00:37:42.270
  • IT'S NOT WHAT-- IT MEANS FINDING A RIGHT PLACE,
  • 00:37:42.290 --> 00:37:46.080
  • FINDING THEIR HOME, FINDING THEIR TRIBE
  • 00:37:46.100 --> 00:37:49.140
  • AND THEIR PEOPLE.
  • 00:37:49.160 --> 00:37:51.210
  • YOU'RE IN A WASTELAND IF THERE'S NO RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:37:51.230 --> 00:37:53.290
  • THAT ARE TANGIBLE.
  • 00:37:54.010 --> 00:37:56.040
  • YOU'RE IN A WASTELAND IF THERE ARE NO COMMUNITY,
  • 00:37:56.060 --> 00:37:59.060
  • IF THERE'S A COMMUNITY BUILT AROUND YOU, RIGHT?
  • 00:37:59.080 --> 00:38:02.070
  • IF YOU'RE NOT GIVING COMMUNITY TO OTHER
  • 00:38:02.090 --> 00:38:04.010
  • PEOPLE, YOU'RE IN A WASTELAND.
  • 00:38:04.030 --> 00:38:05.260
  • GET OUT OF THERE!
  • 00:38:05.280 --> 00:38:07.250
  • I'LL TELL YOU IT'S VERY DIFFICULT TO AFFECT AND
  • 00:38:07.270 --> 00:38:10.280
  • TO BE THE PERSON THAT YOU NEED TO BE IF YOU DON'T
  • 00:38:11.000 --> 00:38:13.160
  • HAVE TRUSTING RELATIONSHIPS AROUND YOU
  • 00:38:13.180 --> 00:38:15.170
  • THAT WILL TELL YOU THE HONEST TO GOD TRUTH ABOUT
  • 00:38:15.190 --> 00:38:18.070
  • WHO YOU ARE, RIGHT?
  • 00:38:18.090 --> 00:38:20.010
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:38:20.030 --> 00:38:21.210
  • YOU'RE NOT GONNA GET THOSE RELATIONSHIPS IF
  • 00:38:21.230 --> 00:38:23.250
  • YOU'RE A WANDERER BECAUSE GOD HAS PUT YOU AND
  • 00:38:23.270 --> 00:38:25.260
  • CALLED YOU TO A PLACE.
  • 00:38:25.280 --> 00:38:27.150
  • YOU ARE NEVER TO BE LEFT HUNGRY AND THIRSTY.
  • 00:38:27.170 --> 00:38:29.230
  • HE WANTS TO SATISFY YOU.
  • 00:38:29.250 --> 00:38:31.130
  • THEN WHEN YOUR HEART GETS TO THAT PLACE AND
  • 00:38:31.150 --> 00:38:33.280
  • POSITION WHERE IT SAYS THIS, IT SAYS THIS,
  • 00:38:34.000 --> 00:38:37.070
  • THEN, THEN THEY CRIED OUT, THEY CRIED OUT TO THE
  • 00:38:37.090 --> 00:38:45.060
  • LORD IN THEIR TROUBLE.
  • 00:38:45.080 --> 00:38:47.060
  • SO DON'T WAIT FOR THE TROUBLE TO PASS.
  • 00:38:47.080 --> 00:38:48.280
  • CRY OUT TO THE LORD RIGHT IN IT WHEN YOU'RE
  • 00:38:49.000 --> 00:38:51.080
  • STEPPING IN IT, WHEN IT'S COVERING YOUR SHOES,
  • 00:38:51.100 --> 00:38:54.070
  • CRAWLING UP YOUR LEG AND IT'S REALLY POOH!
  • 00:38:54.090 --> 00:38:57.000
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:38:57.020 --> 00:38:59.090
  • YOU SMELL IT, IT IS IT, SO YOU'RE IN IT.
  • 00:38:59.110 --> 00:39:03.020
  • SAY IT. CRY OUT TO THE LORD.
  • 00:39:03.040 --> 00:39:04.260
  • IT SAYS CRY OUT TO THE LORD.
  • 00:39:04.280 --> 00:39:06.060
  • AND IT SAYS AND HE DELIVERED THEM.
  • 00:39:06.080 --> 00:39:11.010
  • DELIVERED THEM.
  • 00:39:11.030 --> 00:39:12.080
  • AND YOU KNOW, DELIVERANCE IS REALLY SOMETIMES IT'S
  • 00:39:12.100 --> 00:39:14.290
  • A PROCESS AND SOMETIMES IT'S INSTANTANEOUS.
  • 00:39:15.010 --> 00:39:18.070
  • SO DELIVERANCE WAS THIS FOR THEM.
  • 00:39:18.090 --> 00:39:20.060
  • HE LED THEM BY A STRAIGHT WAY TO A CITY WHERE THEY
  • 00:39:20.080 --> 00:39:24.200
  • COULD SETTLE. THEY FOUND THEIR PLACE.
  • 00:39:24.220 --> 00:39:26.240
  • COME ON PEOPLE, COME ON.
  • 00:39:26.260 --> 00:39:28.160
  • HE WILL LEAD YOU. HE WILL LEAD YOU.
  • 00:39:28.180 --> 00:39:30.110
  • SOMETIMES WE'RE LOOKING FOR EVERY SOURCE ON THE
  • 00:39:30.130 --> 00:39:33.210
  • INTERNET TO FIND OUR PLACE, TO FIND OUR HOME,
  • 00:39:33.230 --> 00:39:36.270
  • TO FIND OUR APARTMENT, TO FIND OUR GROUP.
  • 00:39:36.290 --> 00:39:40.160
  • HE WILL LEAD YOU IF YOU ASK HIM TO LEAD YOU.
  • 00:39:40.180 --> 00:39:46.080
  • GET OUT OF YOUR POOH AND LET HIM CLEAN YOU UP AND
  • 00:39:46.100 --> 00:39:50.190
  • LEAD YOU ON AND SETTLE TO A PLACE THAT YOU WILL NOT
  • 00:39:50.210 --> 00:39:55.160
  • ONLY LEARN TO LOVE, BUT THEY WILL LEARN TO LOVE
  • 00:39:55.180 --> 00:39:58.100
  • YOU. SO NOW LET'S GO ON.
  • 00:39:58.120 --> 00:40:01.070
  • THERE'S ANOTHER GROUP. THERE'S ANOTHER GROUP.
  • 00:40:01.090 --> 00:40:02.210
  • IN VERSE 10 SOME SAT IN UTTER DARKNESS,
  • 00:40:02.230 --> 00:40:08.170
  • PRISONERS, SUFFERING IN IRON WHAT? CHAINS.
  • 00:40:08.190 --> 00:40:14.030
  • BECAUSE THEY REBELLED AGAINST GOD'S COMMANDS.
  • 00:40:14.050 --> 00:40:16.080
  • WE DON'T LIKE READING IT OUT LOUD IN CHURCH.
  • 00:40:16.100 --> 00:40:18.290
  • SOME OF US ARE DOING IT, RIGHT?
  • 00:40:19.010 --> 00:40:21.130
  • I'VE GOT MY WAYS.
  • 00:40:21.150 --> 00:40:23.060
  • YEAH, JAMES DEAN, YOU GOT SOME REBELLION IN YOU.
  • 00:40:23.080 --> 00:40:25.290
  • THAT LOOKS SEXY SOMETIMES ON SCREEN; IT DON'T LOOK
  • 00:40:26.010 --> 00:40:29.070
  • SEXY IN MY LIVING ROOM. RIGHT?
  • 00:40:29.090 --> 00:40:32.260
  • IT DON'T LOOK SEXY WHEN YOU'RE DATING YOU.
  • 00:40:32.280 --> 00:40:35.150
  • BECAUSE HE REBELLED AGAINST GOD'S COMMANDS
  • 00:40:35.170 --> 00:40:39.000
  • AND DESPISED. DESPISED. HATED. HATED WITH A PASSION.
  • 00:40:39.020 --> 00:40:45.200
  • THE PLANS OF THE MOST HIGH.
  • 00:40:45.220 --> 00:40:49.160
  • YOU EVER BEEN THERE?
  • 00:40:49.180 --> 00:40:51.010
  • I KNOW WHAT GOD WANTS ME TO DO.
  • 00:40:51.030 --> 00:40:54.060
  • I'M NOT GONNA DO IT.
  • 00:40:54.080 --> 00:40:56.180
  • WE THINK THE PLANS OF THE MOST HIGH MUST BE FOR HIS
  • 00:40:56.200 --> 00:40:59.160
  • BENEFIT OR FOR HIS GLORY.
  • 00:40:59.180 --> 00:41:01.200
  • THE PLANS OF THE MOST HIGH ARE MOST HIGH IN
  • 00:41:01.220 --> 00:41:04.230
  • YOUR FAVOR, IN YOUR FAVOR!
  • 00:41:04.250 --> 00:41:08.220
  • YES? THAT IS SO GOOD, ESPECIALLY WHEN WE'RE
  • 00:41:08.240 --> 00:41:11.010
  • TALKING ABOUT GOING INTO THE UNKNOWN, KNOWING IF I
  • 00:41:11.030 --> 00:41:13.140
  • DON'T HAVE IT ALL WRAPPED INTO SOME NICE LITTLE
  • 00:41:13.160 --> 00:41:15.190
  • PACKAGE; NO, THE PLANS OF THE MOST HIGH ARE MOST HIGH.
  • 00:41:15.210 --> 00:41:20.130
  • I CAN TRUST HIM. I CAN TRUST HIM.
  • 00:41:20.150 --> 00:41:23.150
  • I CAN TRUST HIM. AND WE'RE MOVING.
  • 00:41:23.170 --> 00:41:27.030
  • IT SAYS THIS SO HE SUBJECTED THEM TO BITTER LABOR.
  • 00:41:27.050 --> 00:41:29.280
  • HOW MANY OF US UP FOR BITTER LABOR TALK?
  • 00:41:30.000 --> 00:41:32.110
  • YOU KNOW WHAT, WE THINK THERE'S NO REPERCUSSIONS
  • 00:41:32.130 --> 00:41:34.120
  • FOR OUR REBELLION AND DESPISING THE PLANS
  • 00:41:34.140 --> 00:41:37.000
  • OF THE MOST HIGH.
  • 00:41:37.020 --> 00:41:39.010
  • BUT THEN WE WONDER, GOD, WHY DID YOU DO THIS NOW
  • 00:41:39.030 --> 00:41:41.210
  • THAT I'M WORKING SOME HORRIBLE JOB AND
  • 00:41:41.230 --> 00:41:44.190
  • I CAN'T EKE OUT AN EXISTENCE HERE.
  • 00:41:44.210 --> 00:41:47.220
  • BECAUSE MAYBE WE'VE MADE AND FAILED AT SOME HUGE
  • 00:41:47.240 --> 00:41:51.200
  • LIFE PLAN THAT YOU KNEW GOD TOLD YOU TO DO BUT
  • 00:41:51.220 --> 00:41:55.070
  • YOU DIDN'T AND NOW YOU'RE SUFFERING WITH BITTER
  • 00:41:55.090 --> 00:41:56.230
  • LABOR. THEY STUMBLED.
  • 00:41:56.250 --> 00:41:59.120
  • STUMBLED THROUGH LIFE AND THERE WAS
  • 00:41:59.140 --> 00:42:02.030
  • NO ONE TO HELP THEM.
  • 00:42:02.050 --> 00:42:03.170
  • THERE WAS NOBODY STANDING BESIDE THEM TO SAY
  • 00:42:03.190 --> 00:42:06.000
  • THERE'S AN ADVOCATE.
  • 00:42:06.020 --> 00:42:08.030
  • MOST OF THE TIME THERE IS MOM SOMEWHERE AND SHE'S
  • 00:42:08.050 --> 00:42:10.170
  • CALLING YOU, AND HOPING THAT YOU'RE TRYING TO GET
  • 00:42:10.190 --> 00:42:13.140
  • YOUR ACT TOGETHER.
  • 00:42:13.160 --> 00:42:14.220
  • AND THERE'S SOMEBODY, MAYBE A DISTANT AUNT,
  • 00:42:14.240 --> 00:42:16.210
  • THAT'S JUST LIKE SENDING YOU A FEW DOLLARS.
  • 00:42:16.230 --> 00:42:18.150
  • I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:42:18.170 --> 00:42:19.260
  • BUT WHEN YOU STUMBLE FOR TOO LONG, DON'T BE
  • 00:42:19.280 --> 00:42:21.270
  • SURPRISED THAT EVENTUALLY NOBODY'S GONNA BE THERE
  • 00:42:21.290 --> 00:42:23.290
  • TO HELP YOU UP BECAUSE THEY DON'T BELIEVE YOU
  • 00:42:24.010 --> 00:42:26.010
  • ANYMORE, RIGHT? TOO MANY EXCUSES. TOO MANY.
  • 00:42:26.030 --> 00:42:29.270
  • IT JUST SAYS THIS.
  • 00:42:29.290 --> 00:42:33.090
  • SOME SAT IN DARKNESS, UTTER DARKNESS PRISONERS
  • 00:42:33.110 --> 00:42:37.170
  • SUFFERING. I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S YOU.
  • 00:42:37.190 --> 00:42:39.150
  • I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S YOUR HEART, THAT YOU ARE
  • 00:42:39.170 --> 00:42:41.110
  • SET ON A COURSE OF SUFFERING AND YOUR OWN
  • 00:42:41.130 --> 00:42:44.050
  • PAIN WHAT THAT DARKNESS LOOKS LIKE, OR IF
  • 00:42:44.070 --> 00:42:46.120
  • SOMEBODY ELSE DID THAT TO YOU OR
  • 00:42:46.140 --> 00:42:48.270
  • YOU CREATED THAT PRISON.
  • 00:42:48.290 --> 00:42:50.100
  • IT SAYS THEN THEY CAME TO A PLACE WHERE THEY WERE
  • 00:42:50.120 --> 00:42:53.020
  • DESPERATE ENOUGH, THEY CRIED TO THE LORD.
  • 00:42:53.040 --> 00:42:57.080
  • THEY CRIED TO THE LORD IN THEIR TROUBLE. YEAH.
  • 00:42:57.100 --> 00:43:01.070
  • YOU CAN CRY TO THE LORD IN YOUR TROUBLE,
  • 00:43:01.090 --> 00:43:03.100
  • AND HE SAVED THEM FROM THAT DISTRESS.
  • 00:43:03.120 --> 00:43:05.010
  • THEIR DISTRESS.
  • 00:43:05.030 --> 00:43:06.230
  • AND PRISONERS ASKING A QUESTION WHO'S COMING TO
  • 00:43:06.250 --> 00:43:09.140
  • FREE ME? WHEN AM GONNA GET OUT?
  • 00:43:09.160 --> 00:43:12.190
  • WHO'S GONNA HELP ME GET OUT OF THIS?
  • 00:43:12.210 --> 00:43:15.200
  • WHEN YOU'RE DESPERATE ENOUGH, HE WILL BRING YOU
  • 00:43:15.220 --> 00:43:18.120
  • OUT. HE WILL BRING YOU OUT.
  • 00:43:18.140 --> 00:43:22.030
  • AND HE WILL BREAK YOUR CHAINS.
  • 00:43:22.050 --> 00:43:23.180
  • SOME OF US ARE SITTING IN DARK PLACES THAT WE DO
  • 00:43:23.200 --> 00:43:26.030
  • NOT BELONG BECAUSE THERE IS ACCESSIBILITY TO LIGHT.
  • 00:43:26.050 --> 00:43:29.260
  • AND SOME OF US ARE CHOOSING THE DARK SPACES
  • 00:43:29.280 --> 00:43:31.220
  • BECAUSE WE JUST WILL NOT OPEN OUR EYES AND GO TO
  • 00:43:31.240 --> 00:43:35.240
  • THE DOOR AND OPEN THAT DOOR AND WALK TOWARD THE
  • 00:43:35.260 --> 00:43:37.240
  • LIGHT. WE WILL NOT PRAY THAT PRAYER THAT
  • 00:43:37.260 --> 00:43:40.110
  • THE DARKNESS WILL FLEE.
  • 00:43:40.130 --> 00:43:42.140
  • SOME OF US DON'T BELIEVE THAT WHEN WE CALL OUT THE
  • 00:43:42.160 --> 00:43:44.240
  • DARKNESS AND DEMAND THAT IT FLEES THAT THE
  • 00:43:44.260 --> 00:43:46.280
  • DEPRESSION SOMETIMES WILL LIFT AND THAT GOD HONORS
  • 00:43:47.000 --> 00:43:49.250
  • OUR CRIES OF HELP.
  • 00:43:49.270 --> 00:43:53.030
  • HE'S WITH YOU IN THE DARKNESS, BUT YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:43:53.050 --> 00:43:55.060
  • TO LIVE IN THE DARKNESS.
  • 00:43:55.080 --> 00:43:58.060
  • YOU ARE NOT TO BE A PRISONER.
  • 00:43:58.080 --> 00:44:00.020
  • THAT IS NOT YOUR EXISTENCE.
  • 00:44:00.040 --> 00:44:01.080
  • THAT IS NOT YOUR HEART.
  • 00:44:01.100 --> 00:44:03.050
  • THAT IS NOT WHAT YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO DO OR WHAT
  • 00:44:03.070 --> 00:44:05.020
  • YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE.
  • 00:44:05.040 --> 00:44:07.050
  • YOU ARE NOT TO BE A PRISONER SITTING
  • 00:44:07.070 --> 00:44:09.210
  • IN THE UTTER DARKNESS.
  • 00:44:09.230 --> 00:44:12.090
  • THERE IS A LIGHT FOR YOU AND A SIGN THAT THE SIGN
  • 00:44:12.110 --> 00:44:16.070
  • THAT YOU ARE FREE, ONE OF THOSE SIGNS ARE YOU JUST,
  • 00:44:16.090 --> 00:44:21.160
  • THAT YOU SEARCH FOR LIGHT.
  • 00:44:21.180 --> 00:44:23.190
  • YOU GET LIGHT BUT YOU SEARCH FOR MORE LIGHT.
  • 00:44:23.210 --> 00:44:26.170
  • SOMETIMES I SEE PEOPLE WHO ARE CREATIVES AND
  • 00:44:26.190 --> 00:44:30.050
  • THEY SAY OH, WELL, NOW THAT I HAVE JESUS IN MY
  • 00:44:30.070 --> 00:44:33.280
  • LIFE, IT JUST DOESN'T AFFECT THEIR ART, SO
  • 00:44:34.000 --> 00:44:38.140
  • THEY JUST CREATE MORE DARK ART, MORE DARK ART,
  • 00:44:38.160 --> 00:44:40.280
  • MORE DARK ART.
  • 00:44:41.000 --> 00:44:42.090
  • LIGHT AFFECTS LIGHT, CREATES LIGHT AND MORE LIGHT.
  • 00:44:42.110 --> 00:44:46.040
  • AND THAT'S A TEST. THAT'S A TEST.
  • 00:44:46.060 --> 00:44:47.220
  • HOW MUCH LIGHT IS IN YOUR LIFE IF YOU SAY THAT
  • 00:44:47.240 --> 00:44:49.060
  • YOU'RE FREE, RIGHT?
  • 00:44:49.080 --> 00:44:51.100
  • AND THEN THIS OTHER THING IS THEY DON'T JUST
  • 00:44:51.120 --> 00:44:53.120
  • GRAVITATE TOWARD LIGHT, BUT FREE PEOPLE, FREE
  • 00:44:53.140 --> 00:44:57.070
  • PEOPLE, FREE PEOPLE.
  • 00:44:57.090 --> 00:44:59.250
  • FREE PEOPLE FREE PEOPLE. RIGHT?
  • 00:44:59.270 --> 00:45:04.040
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:45:04.060 --> 00:45:08.210
  • LOOK AT THIS. LOOK AT THIS.
  • 00:45:08.230 --> 00:45:14.200
  • HE BROUGHT THEM OUT OF DARKNESS, THE UTTER DARKNESS.
  • 00:45:14.220 --> 00:45:17.170
  • HE BROKE AWAY THEIR CHAINS.
  • 00:45:17.190 --> 00:45:18.260
  • LET THEM GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD FOR HIS
  • 00:45:18.280 --> 00:45:20.240
  • UNFAILING LOVE AND HIS WONDERFUL DEEDS FOR
  • 00:45:20.260 --> 00:45:23.220
  • MANKIND, FOR HE BREAKS DOWN GATES OF WHAT?
  • 00:45:23.240 --> 00:45:27.130
  • BRONZE, AND HE CUTS THROUGH BARS OF IRON, AND
  • 00:45:27.150 --> 00:45:30.250
  • YOU JUST THINK LOOK AT THAT PICTURE OF BEING IN
  • 00:45:30.270 --> 00:45:33.090
  • UTTER DARKNESS. CHAINS ON YOUR ARMS.
  • 00:45:33.110 --> 00:45:36.000
  • AND GOD BREAKS THROUGH ALL OF THAT.
  • 00:45:36.020 --> 00:45:38.200
  • AND HE BREAKS DOWN THE GATES AND THE BARS, AND
  • 00:45:38.220 --> 00:45:44.150
  • THEN YOUR CHAINS THAT ARE KEEPING YOU ATTACHED,
  • 00:45:44.170 --> 00:45:47.010
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:45:47.030 --> 00:45:48.190
  • DO YOU SEE THE PICTURE OF THAT, THAT BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:45:48.210 --> 00:45:50.110
  • IMAGERY AND HE MOVES IT ALL OUT OF THE WAY, AND
  • 00:45:50.130 --> 00:45:53.160
  • HE GIVES YOU THEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO WALK FREE.
  • 00:45:53.180 --> 00:45:56.290
  • AND THEN IT SAID THERE'S ANOTHER GROUP OF PEOPLE,
  • 00:45:57.010 --> 00:45:58.220
  • AND IT'S IN VERSE 17.
  • 00:45:58.240 --> 00:46:01.010
  • ALL RIGHT, SOME BECAME FOOLS.
  • 00:46:01.030 --> 00:46:04.190
  • THIS MIGHT BE YOU.
  • 00:46:04.210 --> 00:46:06.270
  • SOME-- IF I KNOW YOU, I COULD CALL YOUR NAME OUT.
  • 00:46:06.290 --> 00:46:11.070
  • SOME BECAME FOOLS THROUGH THEIR REBELLIOUS WAYS AND
  • 00:46:11.090 --> 00:46:17.030
  • SUFFERED AFFLICTION BECAUSE OF THEIR
  • 00:46:17.050 --> 00:46:19.020
  • INIQUITIES, THEIR SINS.
  • 00:46:19.040 --> 00:46:22.090
  • THEY LOATHED ALL FOOD AND THEY DREW NEAR
  • 00:46:22.110 --> 00:46:25.200
  • THE GATES OF DEATH.
  • 00:46:25.220 --> 00:46:27.240
  • THEY WERE FOOLS, RIGHT, BECAUSE THEY WOULDN'T
  • 00:46:27.260 --> 00:46:35.040
  • LEARN A DIFFERENT PATH. THEY WOULDN'T LEARN.
  • 00:46:35.060 --> 00:46:38.000
  • I UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:46:38.020 --> 00:46:39.190
  • IT SAYS FOOLS BECAME, THEY BECAME FOOLS SO THEY
  • 00:46:39.210 --> 00:46:42.230
  • REBELLIOUS WAYS, THEY SUFFERED ALL KINDS OF
  • 00:46:42.250 --> 00:46:44.270
  • AFFLICTIONS, ALL KINDS OF REPERCUSSIONS AT WORK FOR
  • 00:46:44.290 --> 00:46:48.180
  • THESE ATTITUDES THEY SUFFERED THEM.
  • 00:46:48.200 --> 00:46:51.020
  • THEY LOATHE ALL FOOD AND THEY DREW NEAR TO THE
  • 00:46:51.040 --> 00:46:53.160
  • GATES OF DEATH BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT, THEY CAN'T
  • 00:46:53.180 --> 00:46:55.200
  • EVEN DECIDE IF IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO EAT OR NOT,
  • 00:46:55.220 --> 00:46:58.200
  • AND THEY JUST GET WEAKER AND WEAKER
  • 00:46:58.220 --> 00:47:00.280
  • AND WEAKER AND WEAKER.
  • 00:47:01.000 --> 00:47:02.250
  • AND I STOOD AT MALAWI AFRICA A FEW MONTHS AGO,
  • 00:47:02.270 --> 00:47:05.120
  • AND I WAS STANDING IN FRONT OF 121 CHIEFS IN THE
  • 00:47:05.140 --> 00:47:09.270
  • AREA. AND I SAID WE WANT TO BUILD A RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:47:09.290 --> 00:47:13.120
  • WE WANT PARTNERS WHO ARE WISE AND WHO ARE
  • 00:47:13.140 --> 00:47:15.070
  • HONEST AND TRUE.
  • 00:47:15.090 --> 00:47:16.210
  • AND I SHARED THIS SCRIPTURE WITH THEM, AND
  • 00:47:16.230 --> 00:47:18.110
  • I SAID YOU KNOW LIKE IF I HAVE A FAMILY, AND I TOLD
  • 00:47:18.130 --> 00:47:21.010
  • THEM ABOUT MY FAMILY, AND THEY LEFT THEIR HOUSE AND
  • 00:47:21.030 --> 00:47:25.090
  • THERE WAS A BIG HOLE IN THE GROUND, AND EVERY
  • 00:47:25.110 --> 00:47:27.050
  • TIME THEY LEFT THE HOUSE, THEY WENT DOWN THE ROAD,
  • 00:47:27.070 --> 00:47:30.060
  • AND THEY SAW THAT HOLE AND THEY JUST FELL
  • 00:47:30.080 --> 00:47:32.060
  • RIGHT IN IT.
  • 00:47:32.080 --> 00:47:34.040
  • AND THEY CLIMBED THEIR WAY OUT, YOU KNOW, THEN
  • 00:47:34.060 --> 00:47:37.010
  • FINALLY MADE THEIR WAY HOME AGAIN, BUT THEN THE
  • 00:47:37.030 --> 00:47:39.230
  • NEXT DAY, THEY LEFT THE HOUSE, THEY WALKED DOWN
  • 00:47:39.250 --> 00:47:43.100
  • THE SAME ROAD, THEY SAW THE SAME HOLE, AND THEY
  • 00:47:43.120 --> 00:47:45.150
  • FELL IN IT AGAIN.
  • 00:47:45.170 --> 00:47:47.090
  • AND THEN AFTER A WHILE THEY'RE LIKE WHO PUT
  • 00:47:47.110 --> 00:47:50.080
  • THIS HOLE RIGHT HERE?
  • 00:47:50.100 --> 00:47:52.290
  • AND WHO IS GOING TO GET ME OUT? MOM.
  • 00:47:53.010 --> 00:47:57.120
  • AND WHY? WHY?
  • 00:47:57.140 --> 00:48:01.090
  • WHY IS IT ALWAYS HAPPENING TO ME, THIS HOLE?
  • 00:48:01.110 --> 00:48:04.280
  • AND THEY CLIMB OUT AGAIN, AND EVERY TIME THEY FALL
  • 00:48:05.000 --> 00:48:07.060
  • IN, THEY BECOME WEAKER AND BLAME SOMEONE ELSE.
  • 00:48:07.080 --> 00:48:09.170
  • AND I SAY TO THE CHIEFS, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO
  • 00:48:09.190 --> 00:48:11.250
  • THEM WISE CHIEFS?
  • 00:48:11.270 --> 00:48:15.150
  • BECAUSE I JUST TOLD THEM ABOUT MY FAMILY.
  • 00:48:15.170 --> 00:48:18.290
  • THEY SAID I WOULD STOP DRINKING THE LIQUOR.
  • 00:48:19.010 --> 00:48:21.110
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:48:21.130 --> 00:48:24.170
  • WELL, I SAID THAT WAS ONE OF THE PROBLEMS,
  • 00:48:24.190 --> 00:48:26.120
  • AND YES THEY WOULD ALWAYS COME OUT AND
  • 00:48:26.140 --> 00:48:28.230
  • FALL IN THE SAME HOLE.
  • 00:48:28.250 --> 00:48:30.020
  • AT SOME POINT, I TOLD THEM, I SAID SOMEDAY A
  • 00:48:30.040 --> 00:48:32.220
  • WISE PERSON, A PERSON WHO'S GONNA LEARN FROM
  • 00:48:32.240 --> 00:48:35.230
  • THEIR MISTAKES, THEY'RE GONNA TAKE THEMSELVES OUT
  • 00:48:35.250 --> 00:48:38.230
  • OF THEIR HOUSE, WALK DOWN A DIFFERENT ROAD!
  • 00:48:38.250 --> 00:48:42.150
  • THAT'S THE ANSWER, A DIFFERENT ROAD!
  • 00:48:42.170 --> 00:48:44.270
  • THAT'S THE ANSWER!
  • 00:48:44.290 --> 00:48:47.020
  • IF YOU'RE NOT GONNA FIX THE HOLE, THEN TAKE A
  • 00:48:47.040 --> 00:48:49.020
  • DIFFERENT PATH! YES?
  • 00:48:49.040 --> 00:48:53.120
  • AND THEN THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:48:53.140 --> 00:48:55.250
  • THEY GOT SICK OF THEMSELVES BEING AT
  • 00:48:55.270 --> 00:48:57.230
  • THE EDGE OF DEATH.
  • 00:48:57.250 --> 00:48:59.090
  • THEY GOT SO SICK THEY CRIED OUT TO THE LORD IN
  • 00:48:59.110 --> 00:49:01.160
  • THEIR TROUBLE, AND HE SAVED THEM FROM THEIR DISTRESS.
  • 00:49:01.180 --> 00:49:04.160
  • HE SENT OUT HIS WORD, HIS WORD, HIS PROMISE,
  • 00:49:04.180 --> 00:49:08.280
  • HIS WARNING, HIS LOVE FOR THEM.
  • 00:49:09.000 --> 00:49:12.120
  • HE SENT OUT HIS WORD AND IT HEALED THEM AND
  • 00:49:12.140 --> 00:49:14.270
  • HE RESCUED THEM FROM THE GRAVE.
  • 00:49:14.290 --> 00:49:16.280
  • LET THEM GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD, FOR HIS
  • 00:49:17.000 --> 00:49:20.230
  • UNFAILING LOVE AND HIS WONDERFUL DEEDS FOR
  • 00:49:20.250 --> 00:49:22.230
  • MANKIND, LET THEM SACRIFICE OFFERINGS AND
  • 00:49:22.250 --> 00:49:25.280
  • TELL OF HIS WORKS WITH SONGS OF JOY.
  • 00:49:26.000 --> 00:49:29.030
  • SO BEAUTIFUL, ISN'T IT,
  • 00:49:29.050 --> 00:49:32.280
  • WHEN YOU'RE A FOOL AND THEN A FOOL NO LONGER.
  • 00:49:33.000 --> 00:49:38.150
  • LOOK, THIS IS WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE WHEN YOU'RE A
  • 00:49:38.170 --> 00:49:40.030
  • WISE PERSON: WHEN YOU'RE GIVEN FEEDBACK,
  • 00:49:40.050 --> 00:49:42.160
  • YOU LISTEN. YOU TAKE IT IN.
  • 00:49:42.180 --> 00:49:44.150
  • YOU ADJUST YOUR BEHAVIOR ACCORDINGLY.
  • 00:49:44.170 --> 00:49:46.140
  • YOUR OWN PERFORMANCE, YOUR PROBLEMS, YOUR
  • 00:49:46.160 --> 00:49:48.290
  • ISSUES, YOU TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEM
  • 00:49:49.010 --> 00:49:51.080
  • WITHOUT EXCUSES OR BLAME.
  • 00:49:51.100 --> 00:49:53.070
  • YOUR RELATIONSHIPS ARE STRENGTHENED AS A RESULT.
  • 00:49:53.090 --> 00:49:57.080
  • YOU SHOW REMORSE. YOU GO
  • 00:49:57.100 --> 00:50:01.280
  • INTO A FUTURE ORIENTED PROBLEM SOLVING MODE.
  • 00:50:02.000 --> 00:50:05.050
  • YOU DO NOT ALLOW PROBLEMS THAT HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED
  • 00:50:05.070 --> 00:50:09.240
  • TO TURN INTO PATTERNS. RIGHT?
  • 00:50:09.260 --> 00:50:12.060
  • THAT'S THE PROBLEM, RIGHT? SO MANY TIMES.
  • 00:50:12.080 --> 00:50:15.000
  • AND THE LORD CAN SAVE YOU FROM BEING A FOOL AND
  • 00:50:15.020 --> 00:50:19.060
  • SAVE YOUR HEART FROM FOOLISH WAYS.
  • 00:50:19.080 --> 00:50:22.110
  • AND THEN THERE'S THIS LAST PERSON, THIS LAST
  • 00:50:22.130 --> 00:50:25.090
  • GROUP OF PEOPLE, AND I SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST,
  • 00:50:25.110 --> 00:50:28.200
  • RIGHT? THE BEST IS FOR LAST.
  • 00:50:28.220 --> 00:50:31.060
  • SOME WENT OUT ON THE SEA IN SHIPS.
  • 00:50:31.080 --> 00:50:34.000
  • THEY WERE MERCHANTS ON THE MIGHTY WATERS.
  • 00:50:34.020 --> 00:50:38.070
  • WE'LL CALL THEM RISK TAKERS. RIGHT?
  • 00:50:38.090 --> 00:50:40.250
  • THEY WERE MERCHANTS.
  • 00:50:40.270 --> 00:50:42.120
  • THEY WEREN'T SAILORS.
  • 00:50:42.140 --> 00:50:44.020
  • YOU KNOW, THEY WEREN'T SAILORS ON THE MIGHTY
  • 00:50:44.040 --> 00:50:45.280
  • WATERS. THEY KNEW WHAT THEY WERE DOING.
  • 00:50:46.000 --> 00:50:48.040
  • THEY JUST KNEW THEY HAD SOMETHING THAT WAS
  • 00:50:48.060 --> 00:50:50.230
  • ENTREPRENEURIAL THAT THEY NEEDED TO GET ACROSS THAT
  • 00:50:50.250 --> 00:50:53.060
  • SEA BECAUSE THEY COULD SELL OR THEY COULD
  • 00:50:53.080 --> 00:50:56.290
  • ACQUIRE MORE GOODS OVER THERE.
  • 00:50:57.010 --> 00:50:59.110
  • THEY HAD THE INCLINATION THEY HAD TO GO ACROSS.
  • 00:50:59.130 --> 00:51:03.190
  • AND IT SAYS THEY SAW THE WORKS OF THE LORD, HIS
  • 00:51:03.210 --> 00:51:07.250
  • MIGHTY DEEDS IN THE DEEP.
  • 00:51:07.270 --> 00:51:10.040
  • I LOVE THIS. THE RISK TAKERS.
  • 00:51:10.060 --> 00:51:12.060
  • OH, I'M NOT A WANDER; NO, I'M NOT A PRISONER.
  • 00:51:12.080 --> 00:51:15.220
  • OKAY, I'M NOT A FOOL, EVEN THOUGH I MIGHT HAVE
  • 00:51:15.240 --> 00:51:17.220
  • BEEN AND I WON'T ADMIT IT.
  • 00:51:17.240 --> 00:51:19.080
  • BUT I'M A RISK TAKER. RISK TAKERS.
  • 00:51:19.100 --> 00:51:22.220
  • THEY SEE THE WORKS OF THE LORD, THE AMAZING AND
  • 00:51:22.240 --> 00:51:24.240
  • WONDERFUL DEEDS, FOR HE SPOKE AND HE STIRRED UP A
  • 00:51:24.260 --> 00:51:28.190
  • TEMPEST. HE STIRRED IT UP.
  • 00:51:28.210 --> 00:51:31.230
  • THAT'S GOD STIRRING UP THAT LIFTED HIGH THE WAVES.
  • 00:51:31.250 --> 00:51:34.240
  • I WAS TAUGHT NO, NO, ONLY GOD DOES GOOD THINGS,
  • 00:51:34.260 --> 00:51:39.220
  • AND YEAH GOD! AND BOO DEVIL!
  • 00:51:39.240 --> 00:51:43.050
  • WHEN BAD THINGS HAPPEN.
  • 00:51:43.070 --> 00:51:45.050
  • BAD THINGS HAPPEN, AND IT'S NOT ALWAYS THE
  • 00:51:45.070 --> 00:51:49.110
  • WORK OF THE EVIL ONE.
  • 00:51:49.130 --> 00:51:53.140
  • IT SAYS GOD STIRRED UP THIS TEMPEST, THIS ONE,
  • 00:51:53.160 --> 00:51:57.140
  • AND THEY SAW HIS WONDERFUL DEEDS IN THE DEEP.
  • 00:51:57.160 --> 00:52:01.050
  • THEY MOUNTED THOSE WAVES, MOUNTED UP TO THE
  • 00:52:01.070 --> 00:52:04.160
  • HEAVENS, AND IT WENT DOWN TO THE DEPTHS, AND IN
  • 00:52:04.180 --> 00:52:07.030
  • THEIR PERIL, THIS IS EXCITING, THEIR COURAGE
  • 00:52:07.050 --> 00:52:11.000
  • MELTED AWAY. THOSE RISK TAKERS.
  • 00:52:11.020 --> 00:52:14.200
  • THOSE RISK TAKERS CAN BE COWARDS, CAN'T THEY?
  • 00:52:14.220 --> 00:52:18.210
  • BUT THEY WILL ALWAYS GO, WON'T THEY?
  • 00:52:18.230 --> 00:52:22.190
  • THEY WILL ALWAYS TAKE THE RISK.
  • 00:52:22.210 --> 00:52:25.130
  • NO MATTER HOW DEEP.
  • 00:52:25.150 --> 00:52:27.080
  • NO MATTER HOW THREATENING THEY MOUNTED UP, THEY
  • 00:52:27.100 --> 00:52:29.260
  • REELED, THEY STAGGERED LIKE DRUNKARDS, AND THEY
  • 00:52:29.280 --> 00:52:33.130
  • WERE AT THEIR WITS END.
  • 00:52:33.150 --> 00:52:35.070
  • THEY ALSO CAME TO THE VERY EDGE AND THEY SAID
  • 00:52:35.090 --> 00:52:37.040
  • WE JUST CAN'T DO THIS.
  • 00:52:37.060 --> 00:52:38.170
  • THIS IS OUT OF OUR CONTROL.
  • 00:52:38.190 --> 00:52:40.050
  • RISK TAKERS DON'T MIND THAT CONVERSATION BEING
  • 00:52:40.070 --> 00:52:42.160
  • AT THE EDGE AND YET BEING OUT OF CONTROL.
  • 00:52:42.180 --> 00:52:46.040
  • THEY WERE AT THEIR WITS END AND THEY TOO WERE IN
  • 00:52:46.060 --> 00:52:51.240
  • TROUBLE. AND THEY DID THE SAME THING THAT THE PRISONERS,
  • 00:52:51.260 --> 00:52:56.040
  • THAT THE WANDERERS, THAT THE FOOLS DID.
  • 00:52:56.060 --> 00:52:59.000
  • THEY CRIED OUT TO THE LORD BECAUSE WE CAN, AND
  • 00:52:59.020 --> 00:53:03.140
  • HE BROUGHT THEM OUT OF THEIR DISTRESS.
  • 00:53:03.160 --> 00:53:05.220
  • HE STILLED THE STORM TO A WHISPER AND THE WAVES OF
  • 00:53:05.240 --> 00:53:10.260
  • THE SEA WERE HUSHED. AND THEY WERE GLAD.
  • 00:53:10.280 --> 00:53:17.290
  • THEY WERE GLAD WHEN IT CALMED DOWN, WHEN IT GREW
  • 00:53:18.010 --> 00:53:20.090
  • CALM, AND HE GUIDED THEM TO THEIR WHAT?
  • 00:53:20.110 --> 00:53:22.140
  • DESIRED HAVEN.
  • 00:53:22.160 --> 00:53:25.280
  • HE GUIDED THEM TO THEIR DESTINATION.
  • 00:53:26.000 --> 00:53:28.190
  • WHERE YOU GOING? YOU GOING TO THE UNKNOWN?
  • 00:53:28.210 --> 00:53:31.090
  • YOU GOING TO THE OTHER SIDE?
  • 00:53:31.110 --> 00:53:32.140
  • YOU GOING THROUGH DEEP PLACES?
  • 00:53:32.160 --> 00:53:34.020
  • I LOVE THE IDEA THAT THESE MEN WERE IN
  • 00:53:34.040 --> 00:53:37.270
  • IMPOSSIBLE SITUATIONS, AND IT SAID THEY SAW THE
  • 00:53:37.290 --> 00:53:40.230
  • WONDERS OF GOD IN THE DEEP, BECAUSE WHEN I READ
  • 00:53:40.250 --> 00:53:43.030
  • THAT, I'M THINKING DOLPHINS, THEY SAW DOLPHINS!
  • 00:53:43.050 --> 00:53:46.190
  • AND THEY SAW WHALES, AND THEY SAW AT NIGHT THE
  • 00:53:46.210 --> 00:53:51.140
  • CONSTELLATIONS OF THE HEAVENS SO CLEARLY.
  • 00:53:51.160 --> 00:53:54.190
  • THERE MUST HAVE BEEN A BILLION STARS THEY SAW,
  • 00:53:54.210 --> 00:53:57.020
  • AND WHAT THEY SAW WAS THE HAND OF GOD SAVING
  • 00:53:57.040 --> 00:54:00.290
  • THEM FROM DESTRUCTION.
  • 00:54:01.010 --> 00:54:03.220
