  • FROM BOGATA, COLUMBIA, AND YOU KNOW WHEN YOU'RE
  • 00:01:43.150 --> 00:01:46.140
  • GOING TO DIFFERENT PLACES YOU JUST START GETTING
  • 00:01:46.160 --> 00:01:49.130

  • HEAR THE NARRATIVES THAT ARE GOING ON IN
  • 00:01:51.170 --> 00:01:52.200
  • PEOPLE'S LIVES.
  • 00:01:52.220 --> 00:01:54.070
  • BUT WHEN I WOKE UP I HEARD THAT ANTHONY
  • 00:01:54.090 --> 00:01:58.010
  • BOURDAIN TOOK HIS LIFE AND KATE SPADE HAD TAKEN
  • 00:01:58.030 --> 00:02:02.060
  • HER LIFE, AND 2 PEOPLE WHO ARE SO ICONIC IN
  • 00:02:02.080 --> 00:02:05.230
  • FASHION AND IN FOOD AND PROBABLY 2 PEOPLE THAT IF
  • 00:02:05.250 --> 00:02:09.290
  • YOU KNOW WHO THEY ARE YOU WOULD ASPIRE WHO THEY
  • 00:02:10.010 --> 00:02:12.080
  • ARE, WANT THEIR LIFE OR THEIR CAREER, AND YOU
  • 00:02:12.100 --> 00:02:14.290
  • REALIZE THAT THERE'S SO MUCH UNDERNEATH A PERSON
  • 00:02:15.010 --> 00:02:19.250
  • THAT WE'RE HOLDING BY WHAT'S VISIBLE AND WE
  • 00:02:19.270 --> 00:02:23.210
  • BECOME BLIND TO WHAT'S INVISIBLE.
  • 00:02:23.230 --> 00:02:27.220
  • AND SO A PART OF WHAT I'M GOING TO TALK ABOUT IS
  • 00:02:27.240 --> 00:02:30.060
  • HOW WITH GOD NOTHING IS WASTED.
  • 00:02:30.080 --> 00:02:31.110
  • - I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:02:31.130 --> 00:02:33.080

  • IT'S SOMETHING THAT HAS REALLY COME TO ME OVER
  • 00:02:35.100 --> 00:02:36.180
  • THE PAST FEW WEEKS.

  • HOW WITH GOD NOTHING IS WASTED.
  • 00:02:43.000 --> 00:02:45.070
  • SO THAT'S KIND TO BE KIND OF BE A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:02:45.090 --> 00:02:47.110
  • OF A THEME.
  • 00:02:47.130 --> 00:02:49.110
  • I'M GOING TO RAP A LITTLE BIT OF MOSES LIFE AND
  • 00:02:49.130 --> 00:02:51.070
  • JUST TALK ABOUT THE WAY GOD IS ABLE TO JUST
  • 00:02:51.090 --> 00:02:52.290
  • RESTORE AND REDEEM WHAT WE'VE LOST AND WHAT WE
  • 00:02:53.010 --> 00:02:55.280
  • FEEL LIKE CAN'T BE RECOVERED.
  • 00:02:56.000 --> 00:02:57.230

  • ARE YOU READY?
  • 00:03:18.190 --> 00:03:19.090

  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:03:30.050 --> 00:03:33.110
  • - AFTER LISTENING TO PASTOR RICH'S MESSAGE
  • 00:03:33.130 --> 00:03:35.060
  • LAST NIGHT, I WAS LITERALLY HAVING THE
  • 00:03:35.080 --> 00:03:38.220
  • THOUGHT OKAY, WHAT'S LEFT TO TALK ABOUT?
  • 00:03:38.240 --> 00:03:41.200
  • BECAUSE SOMETIMES YOU NEED TO JUST REMEMBER THE
  • 00:03:41.220 --> 00:03:46.180
  • THINGS THAT ARE MOST PURE AND CENTRAL TO WHO WE ARE
  • 00:03:46.200 --> 00:03:49.270
  • AS FOLLOWERS OF JESUS.
  • 00:03:49.290 --> 00:03:53.030
  • I LIVE IN L.A., AND MY WIFE KIM IS A COUNTRY GIRL.
  • 00:03:53.050 --> 00:03:56.270
  • AND SHE GREW UP ON A FARM.
  • 00:03:56.290 --> 00:03:59.070
  • I MEAN A REAL FARM WITH LIKE ANIMALS.
  • 00:03:59.090 --> 00:04:01.140
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:04:01.160 --> 00:04:03.120
  • AND CROPS.
  • 00:04:03.140 --> 00:04:05.050
  • TOBACCO.
  • 00:04:05.070 --> 00:04:06.270
  • BUT CROPS STILL, AND SHE TOOK ME TO THIS LITTLE
  • 00:04:06.290 --> 00:04:10.100
  • SPACE WHERE THE WATER CAME OUT OF THE GROUND
  • 00:04:10.120 --> 00:04:13.260
  • AND THEY DRANK IT WHICH I THOUGHT WAS
  • 00:04:13.280 --> 00:04:15.250
  • REALLY DANGEROUS.
  • 00:04:15.270 --> 00:04:17.090
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:04:17.110 --> 00:04:19.010
  • AND WHEN WE GOT MARRIED WE ALWAYS KIND OF LIKE
  • 00:04:19.030 --> 00:04:21.010
  • NEGOTIATED WHERE WE'D LIVE.
  • 00:04:21.030 --> 00:04:23.130
  • SHE WANTED TO LIVE IN THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:04:23.150 --> 00:04:25.120
  • I WANTED TO LIVE IN THE CITY, SO WE LIVE IN THE CITY.
  • 00:04:25.140 --> 00:04:28.150
  • THAT'S HOW WE NEGOTIATED IT.
  • 00:04:28.170 --> 00:04:29.240
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:04:29.260 --> 00:04:32.290
  • AND SHE'S ALWAYS ASKING ME, ARE WE ALWAYS GOING
  • 00:04:33.010 --> 00:04:34.110
  • TO LIVE IN THE CITY?
  • 00:04:34.130 --> 00:04:35.180
  • AND I SAID WELL, WE DON'T REALLY LIVE IN THE CITY.
  • 00:04:35.200 --> 00:04:37.070
  • SHE GOES OH, THAT MEANS YES IF YOU DON'T THINK WE
  • 00:04:37.090 --> 00:04:38.220
  • LIVE IN THE CITY.
  • 00:04:38.240 --> 00:04:39.280
  • WE CAN SEE THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN FROM OUR
  • 00:04:40.000 --> 00:04:41.100
  • HOUSE BASICALLY.
  • 00:04:41.120 --> 00:04:42.190
  • AND SO I WANTED TO GIVE HER A GIFT SO ABOUT A
  • 00:04:42.210 --> 00:04:46.090
  • MONTH AGO I TOOK HER ON A TREAT.
  • 00:04:46.110 --> 00:04:48.020
  • I TOOK HER ON A SERIES OF LITTLE EXCAVATIONS
  • 00:04:48.040 --> 00:04:50.220
  • AND TRIPS.
  • 00:04:50.240 --> 00:04:52.220
  • SO WE WENT UP TO NORTHERN CALIFORNIA BECAUSE WE MET
  • 00:04:52.240 --> 00:04:54.090
  • THIS COUPLE, TERESA AND MATTHEW, AND THEY OWN A
  • 00:04:54.110 --> 00:04:57.110
  • SERIES OF VEGAN RESTAURANT IS IN L.A.
  • 00:04:57.130 --> 00:05:00.170
  • [AUDIENCE WOOS]
  • 00:05:00.190 --> 00:05:02.130
  • I DON'T KNOW WHY YOU'RE WOOING [LAUGHTER ] BUT
  • 00:05:02.150 --> 00:05:08.250
  • PERSONALLY I HAVE A HARD TIME EATING VEGETABLES
  • 00:05:08.270 --> 00:05:10.210
  • AND FRUIT BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE THE
  • 00:05:10.230 --> 00:05:12.170
  • OPPORTUNITY TO RUN FOR THEIR LIVES [LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:05:12.190 --> 00:05:15.170
  • AND I FEEL LIKE IT'S CRUEL AND UNUSUAL BUT WE
  • 00:05:15.190 --> 00:05:17.220
  • WENT OUT TO THEIR FARM AND IT WAS AN AMAZING
  • 00:05:17.240 --> 00:05:23.100
  • EXPERIENCE BECAUSE THEIR FARM IS AN
  • 00:05:23.120 --> 00:05:25.020
  • ORGANIC EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:05:25.040 --> 00:05:26.160
  • IT'S NOT LIKE ANY FARM I'D EVER SEEN WHERE
  • 00:05:26.180 --> 00:05:28.210
  • EVERYTHING IS LINED UP AND THERE'S ORANGE TREES
  • 00:05:28.230 --> 00:05:30.290
  • ALL LINED UP OR -- I'M OUT OF VEGETABLES.
  • 00:05:31.010 --> 00:05:34.020
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:05:34.040 --> 00:05:36.160
  • AND WHATEVER, BROCCOLI OR APPLES LINED UP.
  • 00:05:36.180 --> 00:05:40.000
  • YOU EVER SEE THOSE FARMS WHERE THEY JUST
  • 00:05:40.020 --> 00:05:41.130
  • PERFECTLY LINE UP?
  • 00:05:41.150 --> 00:05:42.260
  • I THOUGHT THAT'S HOW FARMS WERE SUPPOSED TO
  • 00:05:42.280 --> 00:05:44.070
  • HAPPEN BUT THEIR FARM LOOKED LIKE IT WAS
  • 00:05:44.090 --> 00:05:47.030
  • OUT OF CONTROL.
  • 00:05:47.050 --> 00:05:49.020
  • IT WAS WILD, AND THEN THERE WAS ONE TREE THEN
  • 00:05:49.040 --> 00:05:51.070
  • ANOTHER TREE AND THEN A DIFFERENT TREE AND
  • 00:05:51.090 --> 00:05:52.030
  • SOMETHING ELSE.
  • 00:05:52.050 --> 00:05:53.110
  • AND MATTHEW WAS WALKING AROUND AND EXPLAINING TO
  • 00:05:53.130 --> 00:05:55.030
  • ME THIS IS THE WAY THAT NATURE WAS ACTUALLY
  • 00:05:55.050 --> 00:05:58.170
  • INTENDED TO BE, THAT ONLY HUMANS LINE EVERYTHING UP
  • 00:05:58.190 --> 00:06:02.000
  • AND STANDARDIZE IT.
  • 00:06:02.020 --> 00:06:04.130
  • ONLY HUMANS THINK CONFORMITY IS THE BETTER WAY TO
  • 00:06:04.150 --> 00:06:07.180
  • MAKE THINGS GROW, THAT NATURALLY IN CREATION THE
  • 00:06:07.200 --> 00:06:11.240
  • WAY GOD HAS DONE IT, AND HE SAID UNDERNEATH THIS
  • 00:06:11.260 --> 00:06:14.240
  • GROUND IS THE MOST COMPLEX INTERNET IN
  • 00:06:14.260 --> 00:06:17.120
  • THE UNIVERSE.
  • 00:06:17.140 --> 00:06:19.020
  • I WAS LIKE WOO, THIS IS EXCITING.
  • 00:06:19.040 --> 00:06:21.140
  • AND I'M STANDING ON IT ON THE INTERNET [LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:06:21.160 --> 00:06:24.210
  • AND HE SAID THESE TREES ARE COMMUNICATING WITH
  • 00:06:24.230 --> 00:06:27.090
  • EACH OTHER.
  • 00:06:27.110 --> 00:06:28.220
  • AND THEY'RE GIVING TO EACH OTHER THE MINERALS
  • 00:06:28.240 --> 00:06:30.170
  • AND NUTRIENTS THEY NEED.
  • 00:06:30.190 --> 00:06:33.060
  • AND WHEN YOU PUT EVERYTHING THE SAME, THEY
  • 00:06:33.080 --> 00:06:35.040
  • ONLY HAVE THE SAME TO GIVE SO THEY CAN'T GIVE
  • 00:06:35.060 --> 00:06:37.070
  • EACH OTHER WHAT THEY ACTUALLY NEED.
  • 00:06:37.090 --> 00:06:38.200
  • [APPLAUSE] AND WE'RE WALKING AROUND AND I'M
  • 00:06:38.220 --> 00:06:40.260
  • JUST THINKING ABOUT ALL THE IMPLICATIONS ABOUT
  • 00:06:40.280 --> 00:06:42.170
  • WHY THE CHURCH HAS BEEN SO STANDARDIZED AND WHY
  • 00:06:42.190 --> 00:06:46.270
  • WE USE THE WORD DISCIPLESHIP AND ACTUALLY
  • 00:06:46.290 --> 00:06:48.170
  • WE JUST MEAN CONFORMITY AND WHY THE MOMENT
  • 00:06:48.190 --> 00:06:50.260
  • SOMEONE LOOKS UNIQUE WE THINK THEY'RE NOT LOOKING
  • 00:06:50.280 --> 00:06:52.150
  • LIKE JESUS.
  • 00:06:52.170 --> 00:06:54.050
  • AND IT JUST STRUCK ME HOW WE TEND TO MOVE THINGS
  • 00:06:54.070 --> 00:06:57.240
  • TOWARD STANDARDIZATION AND CONFORMITY, BUT GOD
  • 00:06:57.260 --> 00:06:59.120
  • ALWAYS MOVES THINGS TO COMPLEXITY.
  • 00:06:59.140 --> 00:07:01.120
  • IT'S ORGANIC AND BEAUTIFUL AND UNEXPECTED.
  • 00:07:01.140 --> 00:07:04.240
  • AND THEN AS WE'RE WALKING AROUND, THEY HAD SHEEP
  • 00:07:04.260 --> 00:07:07.170
  • WHICH KIND OF SURPRISED ME BECAUSE I KNEW THEY
  • 00:07:07.190 --> 00:07:10.020
  • WERE VEGANS.
  • 00:07:10.040 --> 00:07:11.170
  • THEY HAVE THESE PLACES LIKE GRACIAS MADRE AND
  • 00:07:11.190 --> 00:07:14.050
  • CAFÉ GRATITUDE AND THESE GREAT RESTAURANTS.
  • 00:07:14.070 --> 00:07:17.050
  • AND I ALWAYS LOVE GOING THERE AND THEN GETTING
  • 00:07:17.070 --> 00:07:19.110
  • SOMETHING TO EAT AFTERWARDS [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:07:19.130 --> 00:07:23.150
  • AND I GET MY SALAD THERE, AND I SAID BUT YOU HAVE SHEEP.
  • 00:07:23.170 --> 00:07:28.100
  • AND HE GOES YES, AND HE EXPLAINED TO ME WHY
  • 00:07:28.120 --> 00:07:29.230
  • THEY HAVE SHEEP.
  • 00:07:29.250 --> 00:07:31.100
  • AND THIS IS A PERSON WHOSE BEEN A VEGAN
  • 00:07:31.120 --> 00:07:33.010
  • ALL HIS LIFE AND NOW HE'S BECOME A MEAT EATER
  • 00:07:33.030 --> 00:07:34.190
  • IN THE LAST THREE YEARS.
  • 00:07:34.210 --> 00:07:35.270
  • AND HE EXPLAINED TO ME THAT IN CREATION THAT
  • 00:07:35.290 --> 00:07:39.180
  • HERDING ANIMALS GRAZE AND THEN DEFECATE.
  • 00:07:39.200 --> 00:07:44.200
  • AND IF THEY DIDN'T GET FORCED TO MOVE, THEY
  • 00:07:44.220 --> 00:07:47.120
  • WOULD GRAZE WHERE THEY DEFECATE AND IT WOULD
  • 00:07:47.140 --> 00:07:49.010
  • ACTUALLY CORRUPT THE FOOD AND THE SYSTEM.
  • 00:07:49.030 --> 00:07:52.230
  • AND HE SAID THAT'S WHY PREDATORS ARE IMPORTANT
  • 00:07:52.250 --> 00:07:54.190
  • BECAUSE PREDATORS FORCE HERDS TO MOVE.
  • 00:07:54.210 --> 00:07:58.180
  • AND THEN HERDS GRAZE AND ACTUALLY REPLENISH THE
  • 00:07:58.200 --> 00:08:01.220
  • SOIL WITH THEIR WASTE.
  • 00:08:01.240 --> 00:08:04.040
  • AND THEN HE WENT ONTO EXPLAIN TO ME BECAUSE IN
  • 00:08:04.060 --> 00:08:07.160
  • CREATION NOTHING IS WASTED.
  • 00:08:07.180 --> 00:08:10.050
  • AND THAT JUST HIT ME.
  • 00:08:10.070 --> 00:08:12.000
  • IN NATURE, NOTHING IS WASTED.
  • 00:08:12.020 --> 00:08:15.000
  • AND THEN FROM THERE MY WIFE AND I WENT UP TO
  • 00:08:15.020 --> 00:08:16.080
  • CARMEL TO THIS CONFERENCE CALLED E.G..
  • 00:08:16.100 --> 00:08:18.060
  • IT'S SORT OF A MORE BOHEMIAN EXPRESSION OF
  • 00:08:18.080 --> 00:08:20.220
  • TED, AND I'VE BEEN A PART OF TED TO LIKE 10, 15
  • 00:08:20.240 --> 00:08:23.240
  • YEARS AND I LOVE LISTENING TO THE
  • 00:08:23.260 --> 00:08:25.100
  • BRIGHTEST MINDS IN THE WORLD FROM EVERY ARENA
  • 00:08:25.120 --> 00:08:28.050
  • AND DISCIPLINE.
  • 00:08:28.070 --> 00:08:30.070
  • AND THAT'S SORT OF MY PLACE TO JUST SORT OF ENJOY.
  • 00:08:30.090 --> 00:08:33.140
  • BUT I WENT TO E. G.
  • 00:08:33.160 --> 00:08:34.220
  • FOR THE FIRST TIME, AND THERE WAS ALL THESE
  • 00:08:34.240 --> 00:08:36.230
  • HIPPIE GENIUSES SOMEHOW MAKING MONEY.
  • 00:08:36.250 --> 00:08:40.250
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:08:40.270 --> 00:08:43.060
  • AND THEN ONE OF THEM WAS THIS PHOTOGRAPHER WHO
  • 00:08:43.080 --> 00:08:45.050
  • FOLLOWED ORANGUTANS.
  • 00:08:45.070 --> 00:08:47.270
  • AND IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ORANGUTANS AND I'M
  • 00:08:47.290 --> 00:08:51.100
  • SURE ALL OF YOU DO THEY KIND OF COME FROM THE
  • 00:08:51.120 --> 00:08:53.260
  • INDONESIAN, MALAYSIAN PART OF THE WORLD BUT
  • 00:08:53.280 --> 00:08:56.130
  • THEY'RE ALMOST NOW ONLY FOUND IN THE JUNGLES OF
  • 00:08:56.150 --> 00:08:58.250
  • SUMATRA AND BORNEO, SO THIS PHOTOGRAPHER WAS
  • 00:08:58.270 --> 00:09:01.290
  • FOLLOWING THIS ORANGUTAN AND SHE HAD IT ON FILM.
  • 00:09:02.010 --> 00:09:04.280
  • IT WAS SO AMAZING.
  • 00:09:05.000 --> 00:09:06.070
  • AND THIS ORANGUTAN WENT OUT ON THIS LOG OVER A
  • 00:09:06.090 --> 00:09:07.290
  • RIVER AND JUST LAID DOWN ON THE LOG AND DIED.
  • 00:09:08.010 --> 00:09:13.110
  • AND THEY WERE ABLE TO FILM THE DEATH, THE
  • 00:09:13.130 --> 00:09:15.230
  • NATURAL DEATH OF AN ORANGUTAN.
  • 00:09:15.250 --> 00:09:17.160
  • AND THEY SAID WE DIDN'T WANT IT TO FALL INTO THE
  • 00:09:17.180 --> 00:09:19.140
  • RIVER SO WE PULLED THE ORANGUTAN OFF THE LOG AND
  • 00:09:19.160 --> 00:09:21.280
  • WE LAID IT DOWN ON THE GROUND AND THEN WE
  • 00:09:22.000 --> 00:09:24.030
  • TOOK PHOTOGRAPHS.
  • 00:09:24.050 --> 00:09:25.160
  • AND THEY SAID WE CAME BACK TWO WEEKS LATER, AND
  • 00:09:25.180 --> 00:09:26.260
  • WHEN THEY CAME BACK THERE WAS NOTHING BUT BONE.
  • 00:09:26.280 --> 00:09:30.250
  • THEY SAID, YOU SEE, THIS ORANGUTAN BECAME THE FOOD
  • 00:09:30.270 --> 00:09:33.170
  • FOR ALL THE INSECTS, AND THEN THE PHOTOGRAPHER
  • 00:09:33.190 --> 00:09:38.190
  • SAID BECAUSE IN NATURE NOTHING IS WASTED.
  • 00:09:38.210 --> 00:09:43.100
  • AND THERE IT WAS AGAIN.
  • 00:09:43.120 --> 00:09:45.110
  • IN NATURE NOTHING IS WASTED.
  • 00:09:45.130 --> 00:09:46.280
  • AND OF COURSE MY MIND STARTED REELING AND
  • 00:09:47.000 --> 00:09:48.290
  • THINKING WELL, IF IN NATURE NOTHING IS WASTED,
  • 00:09:49.010 --> 00:09:52.200
  • THIS MUST BE GOD'S DESIGN, THAT WHEN GOD
  • 00:09:52.220 --> 00:09:56.270
  • CREATES HE CREATES SOMETHING HE CREATES
  • 00:09:56.290 --> 00:10:00.090
  • POWERFUL INTERCONNECTION AND ORGANIC AND BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:10:00.110 --> 00:10:02.250
  • WAY THAT THERE'S NOTHING WASTED.
  • 00:10:02.270 --> 00:10:05.120
  • THEN I STARTED THINKING ABOUT PLASTIC AND HOW WE
  • 00:10:05.140 --> 00:10:08.100
  • CREATED PLASTIC, AND PLASTIC IS SOMETHING THAT
  • 00:10:08.120 --> 00:10:12.170
  • WE INVENTED DOESN'T NATURALLY RECONNECT
  • 00:10:12.190 --> 00:10:16.150
  • ITSELF TO CREATION, AND THE CREATIVE PROCESS SO
  • 00:10:16.170 --> 00:10:19.210
  • IT JUST CREATES PERMANENT WASTE.
  • 00:10:19.230 --> 00:10:22.180
  • I STARTED THINKING ABOUT US AND I WONDER HOW MANY
  • 00:10:22.200 --> 00:10:26.110
  • OF US HAVE CHOSEN TO BECOME PLASTIC BECAUSE
  • 00:10:26.130 --> 00:10:30.060
  • WE'RE AFRAID TO BE FERTILIZER.
  • 00:10:30.080 --> 00:10:31.180
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:10:31.200 --> 00:10:33.240
  • SO I STARTED LOOKING AT OUR LIVES AND WONDERING
  • 00:10:33.260 --> 00:10:40.190
  • IF THE WAY THAT GOD WORKS IN OUR LIVES IS THAT WHEN
  • 00:10:40.210 --> 00:10:45.160
  • WE RECONNECT TO HIM WE RECONNECT NOT ONLY TO THE
  • 00:10:45.180 --> 00:10:48.180
  • CREATOR BUT THE CREATIVE PROCESS.
  • 00:10:48.200 --> 00:10:51.280
  • AND WHEN YOU'RE A PART OF THE CREATIVE PROCESS
  • 00:10:52.000 --> 00:10:53.260
  • NOTHING IS WASTED, SO I WANT YOU ALL TO LOOK WITH
  • 00:10:53.280 --> 00:10:57.040
  • ME IN THE BOOK OF ACTS 7, AND I WANT YOU TO LOOK AT
  • 00:10:57.060 --> 00:10:59.010
  • THE MOMENT WHEN STEPHEN IS PREACHING HIS
  • 00:10:59.030 --> 00:11:02.060
  • ONLY MESSAGE.
  • 00:11:02.080 --> 00:11:04.030
  • BY THE WAY, THAT'S KIND OF TRAGIC.
  • 00:11:04.050 --> 00:11:06.290
  • ONE OF THE FEW MESSAGES WE ACTUALLY HAVE A RECORD
  • 00:11:07.010 --> 00:11:09.210
  • OF IS BY SOMEONE WHO ONLY PREACHED ONE TIME.
  • 00:11:09.230 --> 00:11:14.150
  • IMAGINE IF YOUR FIRST SERMON HAD TO BE
  • 00:11:14.170 --> 00:11:18.020
  • YOUR BEST ONE.
  • 00:11:18.040 --> 00:11:21.020
  • AND THEN YOU THINK WHAT A TRAGEDY THIS MAN STEPHEN
  • 00:11:21.040 --> 00:11:23.210
  • WITH THIS KIND OF GIFTING AND TALENT DIED AFTER HIS
  • 00:11:23.230 --> 00:11:27.010
  • FIRST MESSAGE.
  • 00:11:27.030 --> 00:11:28.040
  • WHAT A WASTE.
  • 00:11:28.060 --> 00:11:31.200
  • OR MAYBE NOT.
  • 00:11:31.220 --> 00:11:34.070
  • SO IN ACTS 7 BEGINNING IN VERSE 20 HE STARTS
  • 00:11:34.090 --> 00:11:36.110
  • TALKING ABOUT MOSES, AND HE SAYS THIS ABOUT MOSES...
  • 00:11:36.130 --> 00:11:38.290
  • - THAT OPENING IMAGERY FROM STEPHEN WHEN HE SAYS
  • 00:13:43.250 --> 00:13:47.020
  • AT THAT TIME MOSES WAS BORN, AND HE WAS NO
  • 00:13:47.040 --> 00:13:49.220
  • ORDINARY CHILD, I DON'T WANT TO JUST MOVE ON
  • 00:13:49.240 --> 00:13:51.250
  • THERE BECAUSE WHEN HE USES THE PHRASE AT THAT
  • 00:13:51.270 --> 00:13:54.060
  • TIME HE WAS TELLING US IT WAS THE WORST TIME.
  • 00:13:54.080 --> 00:13:56.290
  • HE UNDERSTANDS THAT ALL THE PEOPLE LISTENING,
  • 00:13:57.010 --> 00:14:00.020
  • THOSE HEBREWS WHO KNEW THE HISTORY OF MOSES KNEW
  • 00:14:00.040 --> 00:14:02.160
  • THAT AT THAT TIME WAS THE WORST TIME.
  • 00:14:02.180 --> 00:14:04.170
  • HAVE YOU EVER FELT YOU WERE BORN AT THE WRONG
  • 00:14:04.190 --> 00:14:06.030
  • TIME OR THE WRONG PLACE OR TO THE WRONG FAMILY OR
  • 00:14:06.050 --> 00:14:07.270
  • TO THE WRONG COLOR, THE WRONG ETHNICITY OR THE WRONG
  • 00:14:07.290 --> 00:14:11.030
  • ECONOMIC CONDITION?
  • 00:14:11.050 --> 00:14:12.140
  • HAVE YOU EVER FELT LIKE YOU STARTED LIFE
  • 00:14:12.160 --> 00:14:14.140
  • AT A DEFICIT?
  • 00:14:14.160 --> 00:14:16.150
  • AND MOSES STARTS LIFE AT THAT TIME BECAUSE AT THAT
  • 00:14:16.170 --> 00:14:19.250
  • TIME PHARAOH WHO WAS THE RULER OF EGYPT HAD
  • 00:14:19.270 --> 00:14:22.000
  • FORGOTTEN JOSEPH, SO HE DECIDED TO WIPE OUT THE
  • 00:14:22.020 --> 00:14:24.010
  • HEBREWS WHO LIVED IN EGYPT IN COOPERATION IN
  • 00:14:24.030 --> 00:14:27.050
  • COMMUNITY WITH THEM, AND GOD BLESSED BOTH THE
  • 00:14:27.070 --> 00:14:29.160
  • HEBREWS AND THE EGYPTIANS.
  • 00:14:29.180 --> 00:14:31.200
  • AND WE SEEM TO FORGET THAT.
  • 00:14:31.220 --> 00:14:33.040
  • GOD WAS NEVER AGAINST THE EGYPTIANS.
  • 00:14:33.060 --> 00:14:35.140
  • HE BLESSED THE EGYPTIANS THROUGH THE HEBREWS.
  • 00:14:35.160 --> 00:14:38.210
  • BUT THIS PHARAOH FORGOT THAT AND HE DID NOT WANT
  • 00:14:38.230 --> 00:14:41.080
  • THEM TO BE THE CONDUIT OF GOD'S BLESSING FOR THEM,
  • 00:14:41.100 --> 00:14:44.140
  • SO HE BEGINS TO 0 PRESS AND TURN THEM INTO SLAVES.
  • 00:14:44.160 --> 00:14:47.060
  • SO THAT WASN'T ENOUGH SO HE DECIDED TO KILL ALL
  • 00:14:47.080 --> 00:14:48.200
  • THE FIRSTBORN SONS OF THE HEBREWS, AND MOSES WAS
  • 00:14:48.220 --> 00:14:51.060
  • BORN IN THAT GENERATION WHERE EVERYONE OF HIS
  • 00:14:51.080 --> 00:14:54.040
  • PEERS WERE MURDERED.
  • 00:14:54.060 --> 00:14:55.230
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE BEING THE LIVING SYMBOL OF GOD NOT
  • 00:14:55.250 --> 00:14:59.270
  • SHOWING UP FOR YOUR KID?
  • 00:14:59.290 --> 00:15:04.160
  • BECAUSE WE LOOK AT MOSES AS A SYMBOL OF GOD'S
  • 00:15:04.180 --> 00:15:06.140
  • PROMISE, A SYMBOL OF GOD'S GOODNESS AND
  • 00:15:06.160 --> 00:15:08.210
  • PROTECTION, BUT THE REALITY IS THAT MOSES
  • 00:15:08.230 --> 00:15:11.280
  • GREW UP AND EVERY SINGLE HEBREW FAMILY WHO SAW
  • 00:15:12.000 --> 00:15:15.060
  • MOSES WAS REMINDED THAT THEIR SON WAS NOT SPARED.
  • 00:15:15.080 --> 00:15:21.280
  • IT WAS AT THAT TIME WHEN MOSES WAS BORN, AND IT
  • 00:15:22.000 --> 00:15:24.250
  • SAYS HE WAS NO ORDINARY CHILD WHICH I DON'T WANT
  • 00:15:24.270 --> 00:15:26.160
  • TO LEAVE BEHIND BECAUSE I DON'T THINK WHEN MOSES
  • 00:15:26.180 --> 00:15:27.280
  • WAS BORN HE LOOKED THAT EXTRAORDINARY.
  • 00:15:28.000 --> 00:15:29.110
  • I THINK HE LOOKED REGULAR.
  • 00:15:29.130 --> 00:15:31.190
  • AND I KNOW RICH AND DC JUST HAD A LITTLE BABY
  • 00:15:31.210 --> 00:15:35.070
  • AND RICH IS ALL IN LOVE AND EVERYTHING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:15:35.090 --> 00:15:37.150
  • BUT I'VE BEEN AROUND BABIES.
  • 00:15:37.170 --> 00:15:39.210
  • I'VE HAD A COUPLE.
  • 00:15:39.230 --> 00:15:40.200
  • ONE OF THEM IS RIGHT HERE.
  • 00:15:40.220 --> 00:15:41.190
  • HER NAME IS MORIAH.
  • 00:15:41.210 --> 00:15:43.010
  • AND I'M JUST TELLING YOU BABY HORSES WHEN THEY'RE
  • 00:15:43.030 --> 00:15:45.130
  • BORN THOSE CALVES ARE BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:15:45.150 --> 00:15:47.080
  • BABY DOGS WHEN THEY'RE BORN THEY'RE CALLED PUPPIES.
  • 00:15:47.100 --> 00:15:49.010
  • THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:15:49.030 --> 00:15:50.080
  • EVEN CATS THAT I DESPISE WHEN THEY'RE BORN THEY'RE
  • 00:15:50.100 --> 00:15:53.240
  • CALLED KITTENS BECAUSE THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:15:53.260 --> 00:15:55.230
  • ELEPHANTS WHEN THEY'RE BORN THEY COME OUT ENTIRE
  • 00:15:55.250 --> 00:15:57.280
  • MINIATURE ELEPHANT.
  • 00:15:58.000 --> 00:15:59.080
  • BOOM!
  • 00:15:59.100 --> 00:16:01.040
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:16:01.060 --> 00:16:02.060
  • JUST WALKING, DOING LIFE.
  • 00:16:02.080 --> 00:16:04.250
  • HUMANS WHEN WE'RE BORN WE'RE HIDEOUS.
  • 00:16:04.270 --> 00:16:08.100
  • WE'RE JUST ONE GIANT HEAD AND AN APPENDAGE.
  • 00:16:08.120 --> 00:16:12.160
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:16:12.180 --> 00:16:14.140
  • AND THE ONLY REASON YOUR MOTHER THOUGHT YOU WERE
  • 00:16:14.160 --> 00:16:16.210
  • BEAUTIFUL IS SHE HAD JUST GONE THROUGH THE
  • 00:16:16.230 --> 00:16:18.210
  • TRAUMA OF LABOR.
  • 00:16:18.230 --> 00:16:22.050
  • AND WHEN KIM SAID OH, ISN'T HE BEAUTIFUL?
  • 00:16:22.070 --> 00:16:25.120
  • I'M LIKE -[LAUGHTER ] HAVE YOU EVER SEEN ALL
  • 00:16:25.140 --> 00:16:30.240
  • THE PROJECTED IMAGERY OF LIKE ALIENS?
  • 00:16:30.260 --> 00:16:36.010
  • IF YOU TAKE A HUMAN BABY AND KEEP A HUMAN BABY THE
  • 00:16:36.030 --> 00:16:40.160
  • SAME, IT LOOKS LIKE AN ALIEN.
  • 00:16:40.180 --> 00:16:44.070
  • MORIAH WAS BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE WAS BORN.
  • 00:16:44.090 --> 00:16:46.060
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:16:46.080 --> 00:16:52.240
  • BUT DADS KNOW THEY HAVE TO SAY THAT BECAUSE THEY JUST PUT
  • 00:16:52.260 --> 00:16:55.230
  • THEIR WIVES IN THE MOST PAIN THEY'VE EVER
  • 00:16:55.250 --> 00:16:58.040
  • BEEN THROUGH.
  • 00:16:58.060 --> 00:16:59.140
  • SEE, THE REASON STEPHEN SAYS WHEN MOSES WAS BORN
  • 00:16:59.160 --> 00:17:01.230
  • HE WAS NO ORDINARY CHILD, IT'S NOT BECAUSE HE
  • 00:17:01.250 --> 00:17:03.050
  • LOOKED TO EXTRAORDINARY WHEN HE WAS BORN.
  • 00:17:03.070 --> 00:17:05.020
  • HE'S LOOKING BACK THROUGH HIS LIFE.
  • 00:17:05.040 --> 00:17:07.150
  • AND THE ONLY WAY HE CAN DESCRIBE ANYONE WHO LIVED
  • 00:17:07.170 --> 00:17:10.120
  • THE LIFE MOSES LIVED WAS CALLING HIM NO
  • 00:17:10.140 --> 00:17:12.050
  • ORDINARY CHILD.
  • 00:17:12.070 --> 00:17:14.100
  • SEE, I'M CONVINCED THAT THIS IS TRUE FOR ALL OF YOU.
  • 00:17:14.120 --> 00:17:17.030
  • THERE HAS NEVER BEEN AN ORDINARY HUMAN BEING BORN
  • 00:17:17.050 --> 00:17:18.290
  • ON THIS PLANET.
  • 00:17:19.010 --> 00:17:21.030
  • BUT THE TRAGEDY, THE PERPLEXING THING IS THAT
  • 00:17:21.050 --> 00:17:23.250
  • IF THERE HAS NEVER BEEN AN ORDINARY HUMAN BEING
  • 00:17:23.270 --> 00:17:25.250
  • BORN, HOW DO WE EXPLAIN HOW MANY OF US DIE HAVING
  • 00:17:25.270 --> 00:17:28.200
  • LIVED TRAGICALLY ORDINARY LIVES?
  • 00:17:28.220 --> 00:17:33.220
  • BUT THAT'S NOT EVEN WHAT I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT.
  • 00:17:33.240 --> 00:17:35.100
  • I JUST THAT YOU HAD WE'D START THERE JUST TO LAY
  • 00:17:35.120 --> 00:17:38.020
  • A FOUNDATION.
  • 00:17:38.040 --> 00:17:39.260
  • IT SAYS ...
  • 00:17:39.280 --> 00:17:40.090
  • - HE JUST DESCRIBES SO BRIEFLY ONE OF THE MOST
  • 00:17:50.050 --> 00:17:51.140
  • TRAUMATIC EVENTS A HUMAN BEING COULD EVER
  • 00:17:51.160 --> 00:17:53.110
  • GO THROUGH.
  • 00:17:53.130 --> 00:17:55.190
  • MOSES ONLY LIVED UNDER THE PROTECTION OF HIS
  • 00:17:55.210 --> 00:17:58.090
  • PARENTS FOR THREE MONTHS.
  • 00:17:58.110 --> 00:18:01.230
  • AND THEN BECAUSE OF THIS HOLOCAUST THEY HAD TO PUT
  • 00:18:01.250 --> 00:18:04.210
  • MOSES IN A BASKET IN A RIVER HOPING HE COULD
  • 00:18:04.230 --> 00:18:08.260
  • SURVIVE THAT BECAUSE THEY KNEW THERE WAS A BETTER
  • 00:18:08.280 --> 00:18:10.230
  • CHANCE FOR HIM TO SURVIVE IN A RIVER WHERE HE COULD
  • 00:18:10.250 --> 00:18:12.230
  • DROWN OR BE EATEN THAN IN THEIR OWN HOME.
  • 00:18:12.250 --> 00:18:18.090
  • SO AT THREE MONTHS, MOSES WAS PUT OUTSIDE AND HE
  • 00:18:18.110 --> 00:18:20.200
  • FLOATS DOWN THE RIVER AND IF LIFE COULD GET WORSE
  • 00:18:20.220 --> 00:18:22.250
  • HE FLOATS RIGHT TO THE HOUSE OF PHARAOH AND
  • 00:18:22.270 --> 00:18:25.240
  • PHARAOH'S DAUGHTER.
  • 00:18:25.260 --> 00:18:27.100
  • AND SHE FINDS HIM AND DECIDES TO MAKE HIM HER SON.
  • 00:18:27.120 --> 00:18:31.160
  • IMAGINE GROWING UP ALL YOUR LIFE AS NOW THE
  • 00:18:31.180 --> 00:18:35.000
  • ADOPTED SON OF THE VERY MAN WHO WANTED YOU DEAD.
  • 00:18:35.020 --> 00:18:40.110
  • IMAGINE GROWING UP AS THE SON RECEIVING THE
  • 00:18:40.130 --> 00:18:43.000
  • INHERITANCE, LIVING IN THE COMFORT OF THE MAN
  • 00:18:43.020 --> 00:18:45.280
  • WHO KILLED EVERY ONE OF YOUR PEERS, WHERE EVERY
  • 00:18:46.000 --> 00:18:49.220
  • SINGLE DAY OF YOUR LIFE YOU WERE REMINDED THAT
  • 00:18:49.240 --> 00:18:53.040
  • YOU'RE LIVING UNDER THE BENEFIT OF THE CURSE THAT
  • 00:18:53.060 --> 00:18:56.010
  • EVERYONE ELSE EXPERIENCED.
  • 00:18:56.030 --> 00:18:58.020
  • IMAGINE BEING PHARAOH'S DAUGHTER AND THEN SHE
  • 00:18:58.040 --> 00:19:01.280
  • HIRES YOUR ACTUAL MOTHER TO TAKE CARE OF YOU
  • 00:19:02.000 --> 00:19:06.280
  • AS YOUR NANNY.
  • 00:19:07.000 --> 00:19:08.290
  • AND YOU THOUGHT YOU HAD FAMILY ISSUES.
  • 00:19:09.010 --> 00:19:10.100
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:19:10.120 --> 00:19:12.030
  • I'M AN IMMIGRANT FROM EL SALVADOR, AND I WAS BORN
  • 00:19:12.050 --> 00:19:14.190
  • IN SAN SALVADOR AND SPANISH WAS - [CHEERS ]
  • 00:19:14.210 --> 00:19:16.280
  • AWESOME.
  • 00:19:17.000 --> 00:19:18.050
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:19:18.070 --> 00:19:21.080
  • AND SPANISH IS MY FIRST LANGUAGE, AND I NEVER
  • 00:19:21.100 --> 00:19:25.010
  • KNEW MY FATHER.
  • 00:19:25.030 --> 00:19:26.200
  • HE -- I KNOW ABOUT MY FATHER.
  • 00:19:26.220 --> 00:19:30.080
  • I KNOW HE SPOKE AROUND 12 LANGUAGES AND THAT HE WAS
  • 00:19:30.100 --> 00:19:33.080
  • A LINGUISTIC SAVANT AND AN ALCOHOLIC AND A
  • 00:19:33.100 --> 00:19:35.230
  • VIOLENT MAN.
  • 00:19:35.250 --> 00:19:37.270
  • I KNOW WHEN MY MOM WAS PREGNANT WITH ME HE THREW
  • 00:19:37.290 --> 00:19:40.010
  • HER DOWN A FLIGHT OF STAIRS TRYING TO CAUSE AN
  • 00:19:40.030 --> 00:19:42.000
  • ABORTION AND BROKE HER LEG.
  • 00:19:42.020 --> 00:19:45.000
  • I KNOW THE DAY I WAS BORN MY MOM LEFT ME WITH MY
  • 00:19:45.020 --> 00:19:47.230
  • GRANDPARENTS BECAUSE SHE WAS BARELY 20 YEARS OLD
  • 00:19:47.250 --> 00:19:51.120
  • AND GOT A JOB WITH PAN AM AND TOOK OFF TO
  • 00:19:51.140 --> 00:19:54.140
  • SAN FRANCISCO AND BEGAN TO TRY TO MAKE A LIFE SO WE
  • 00:19:54.160 --> 00:19:57.050
  • COULD HAVE A FUTURE.
  • 00:19:57.070 --> 00:19:59.250
  • I KNOW WHEN I WAS AROUND FOUR OR FIVE YEARS OLD,
  • 00:19:59.270 --> 00:20:01.250
  • MY MOM TOOK US FROM EL SALVADOR TO THE UNITED
  • 00:20:01.270 --> 00:20:04.030
  • STATES AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHO I WAS AND WHO I
  • 00:20:04.050 --> 00:20:06.040
  • BELONGED TO.
  • 00:20:06.060 --> 00:20:07.200
  • I THINK THERE'S A LOT OF YOU HERE WHO ARE LIKE
  • 00:20:07.220 --> 00:20:09.130
  • MOSES BECAUSE YOU WERE PUT OUTSIDE.
  • 00:20:09.150 --> 00:20:11.110
  • THIS PHRASE TO ME IS SO SIGNIFICANT IN VERSE 21,
  • 00:20:11.130 --> 00:20:13.290
  • WHEN HE WAS PLACED OUTSIDE.
  • 00:20:14.010 --> 00:20:16.190
  • THERE'S SOME OF YOU HERE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'VE BEEN
  • 00:20:16.210 --> 00:20:18.270
  • PLACED OUTSIDE AND YOU CARRY SO MANY WOUNDS AND
  • 00:20:18.290 --> 00:20:22.200
  • SO MANY SCARS AND YOU'RE JUST SO BROKEN, BUT I
  • 00:20:22.220 --> 00:20:26.200
  • WANT YOU TO KNOW WITH GOD THERE'S NOTHING WASTED.
  • 00:20:26.220 --> 00:20:28.240
  • AND SO EVERY WOUND YOU CARRY, EVERY SCAR YOU
  • 00:20:28.260 --> 00:20:34.070
  • BEAR, EVERY EXPERIENCE THAT HAS STAYED WITH YOU
  • 00:20:34.090 --> 00:20:38.020
  • LIKE A NIGHTMARE, BUT IT'S JUST A MEMORY.
  • 00:20:38.040 --> 00:20:43.030
  • SEE, THERE'S SOME OF YOU HERE AND YOU FEEL
  • 00:20:43.050 --> 00:20:44.070
  • SO DAMAGED.
  • 00:20:44.090 --> 00:20:45.220
  • YOU'RE LIKE I WISH I COULD BE MORE.
  • 00:20:45.240 --> 00:20:47.150
  • I WISH THAT I COULD HAVE MORE COURAGE.
  • 00:20:47.170 --> 00:20:49.110
  • I WISH I COULD BE HEALTHIER.
  • 00:20:49.130 --> 00:20:50.180
  • I WISH I COULD HAVE MORE FAITH.
  • 00:20:50.200 --> 00:20:52.280
  • I WISH I COULD BE MORE LIKE THE PEOPLE THAT I
  • 00:20:53.000 --> 00:20:55.100
  • ADMIRE, BUT I'M JUST SO BROKEN INSIDE.
  • 00:20:55.120 --> 00:21:00.160
  • AND I WANT YOU TO KNOW WITH GOD, YOU SEE,
  • 00:21:00.180 --> 00:21:02.070
  • THERE'S NOTHING WASTED.
  • 00:21:02.090 --> 00:21:03.220
  • WHEN YOU TRY TO FIX ALL THIS WITHOUT GOD, ALL THE
  • 00:21:03.240 --> 00:21:05.260
  • BROKENNESS JUST KEEPS SHAKING INSIDE OF YOUR SOUL.
  • 00:21:05.280 --> 00:21:11.270
  • AND YOU KEEP HEARING THE RATTLING OF ALL THE
  • 00:21:11.290 --> 00:21:13.280
  • FRAGMENTATION OF YOUR IDENTITY.
  • 00:21:14.000 --> 00:21:18.150
  • SEE, WHEN I LOOK BACK I GO GOD, WHY WOULD YOU DO
  • 00:21:18.170 --> 00:21:21.170
  • THIS TO ME?
  • 00:21:21.190 --> 00:21:23.170
  • I WAS 12 YEARS OLD IN A PSYCHIATRIC CHAIR.
  • 00:21:23.190 --> 00:21:24.240
  • I WAS AN OVER ACHIEVER IN PSYCHOSIS.
  • 00:21:24.260 --> 00:21:31.170
  • I REMEMBER LOOKING AT INK
  • 00:21:31.190 --> 00:21:33.000
  • BLOTS AT AGE OF 12 BEING ASKED, WHAT DO YOU SEE?
  • 00:21:33.020 --> 00:21:35.170
  • WHAT DO YOU SEE?
  • 00:21:35.190 --> 00:21:36.180
  • WHAT DO YOU SEE?
  • 00:21:36.200 --> 00:21:38.100
  • AND SPENDING MONTHS IN AND OUT OF A HOSPITAL
  • 00:21:38.120 --> 00:21:40.160
  • BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT I WAS IRREPARABLE AND
  • 00:21:40.180 --> 00:21:44.290
  • COULDN'T BE FIXED.
  • 00:21:45.010 --> 00:21:47.210
  • AND I LOOK BACK AND I THINK GOD, COULDN'T YOU
  • 00:21:47.230 --> 00:21:49.170
  • HAVE JUST LIKE LEFT ME A LITTLE LESS DAMAGED?
  • 00:21:49.190 --> 00:21:54.220
  • BECAUSE I ALWAYS FEEL LIKE I'M RUNNING BEHIND.
  • 00:21:54.240 --> 00:21:57.000
  • YOU EVER FEEL LIKE YOU'RE JUST IN LAST PLACE BUT
  • 00:21:57.020 --> 00:22:00.020
  • YOU'RE RUNNING REALLY HARD?
  • 00:22:00.040 --> 00:22:01.270
  • AND EVERYONE ELSE DOESN'T SEEM LIKE THEY'RE RUNNING
  • 00:22:01.290 --> 00:22:03.170
  • HARD BUT THEY'RE IN FIRST PLACE.
  • 00:22:03.190 --> 00:22:05.230
  • I'M GOING GOD, THE REASON I CAN'T RUN AS FAST IS I
  • 00:22:05.250 --> 00:22:08.160
  • HAVE TO KEEP GOING BACK AND PICKING UP A PART OF ME.
  • 00:22:08.180 --> 00:22:12.040
  • I HAVE TO KEEP GOING BACK AND GRABBING A PART
  • 00:22:12.060 --> 00:22:13.260
  • OF MY SOUL.
  • 00:22:13.280 --> 00:22:15.050
  • I JUST KEEP LOSING A LIMB.
  • 00:22:15.070 --> 00:22:16.140
  • I HAVE TO KEEP GOING BACK AND GRAB ME SO I CAN KEEP
  • 00:22:16.160 --> 00:22:18.290
  • GOING FORWARD.
  • 00:22:19.010 --> 00:22:20.050
  • BUT I WANT YOU TO KNOW SOMETHING, THIS IS
  • 00:22:20.070 --> 00:22:21.040
  • SOMETHING I LEARNED.
  • 00:22:21.060 --> 00:22:22.250
  • I COULD HAVE NEVER KNOWN THAT GOD ALLOWED THIS TO
  • 00:22:22.270 --> 00:22:25.250
  • HAPPEN IN MY LIFE, THAT GOD ALLOWED ME TO BE
  • 00:22:25.270 --> 00:22:27.270
  • PLACED OUTSIDE BECAUSE GOD ALLOWS THE OUTSIDER.
  • 00:22:27.290 --> 00:22:32.260
  • AND IF THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO EVER FIND HIS GRACE
  • 00:22:32.280 --> 00:22:36.260
  • AND HIS MERCY AND HIS KINDNESS ARE THE PEOPLE
  • 00:22:36.280 --> 00:22:39.260
  • WHO HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ON THE INSIDE, WHO WILL EVER
  • 00:22:39.280 --> 00:22:42.120
  • UNDERSTAND THE SOUL OF THE OUTSIDER?
  • 00:22:42.140 --> 00:22:44.250
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:22:44.270 --> 00:22:50.000
  • PEOPLE ASK, WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MOSAIC
  • 00:22:50.020 --> 00:22:51.070
  • ON HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD?
  • 00:22:51.090 --> 00:22:55.170
  • I SAY REALLY THE DIFFERENCE IS MOSAIC IS A
  • 00:22:55.190 --> 00:22:57.220
  • PLACE WHERE WE NEVER FORGET WHAT IT'S LIKE TO
  • 00:22:57.240 --> 00:23:01.040
  • BE ON THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN.
  • 00:23:01.060 --> 00:23:03.000
  • WE JUST NEVER GOT COMFORTABLE ON THE INSIDE.
  • 00:23:03.020 --> 00:23:06.210
  • AND MOSES WAS BEING PREPARED.
  • 00:23:06.230 --> 00:23:09.040
  • THE JOURNEY HE HAD TO BE ON WAS FROM THE OUTSIDE
  • 00:23:09.060 --> 00:23:12.250
  • BECAUSE HE'S GOING TO LEAD AN ENTIRE PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:23:12.270 --> 00:23:14.280
  • LIVED THEIR ENTIRE LIVES ON THE OUTSIDE.
  • 00:23:15.000 --> 00:23:19.030
  • THEY WERE SLAVES.
  • 00:23:19.050 --> 00:23:20.290
  • THEY WERE OPPRESSED.
  • 00:23:21.010 --> 00:23:22.120
  • THEY WERE DESPISED.
  • 00:23:22.140 --> 00:23:24.140
  • AND GOD WAS GOING TO CALL THEM OUT OF EGYPT.
  • 00:23:24.160 --> 00:23:26.220
  • BUT HERE'S THE PROBLEM IS THAT WHEN GOD MOVES THEM
  • 00:23:26.240 --> 00:23:29.150
  • TO FREEDOM, THEY WERE STILL CARRYING THEIR
  • 00:23:29.170 --> 00:23:32.240
  • CAPTIVITY WITH THEM.
  • 00:23:32.260 --> 00:23:37.000
  • SEE, THERE'S SOME OF YOU YOU'VE TRAVELED A LONG
  • 00:23:37.020 --> 00:23:38.140
  • WAY BUT YOU'VE CARRIED YOUR CAPTIVITY WITH YOU.
  • 00:23:38.160 --> 00:23:41.250
  • AND I WANT YOU TO KNOW, STOP BEING UPSET OR ANGRY
  • 00:23:41.270 --> 00:23:45.240
  • OR STOP THINKING YOU'RE IN A DEFICIT BECAUSE OF
  • 00:23:45.260 --> 00:23:48.070
  • ALL YOUR WOUNDS AND SCARS BECAUSE WITH GOD THERE'S
  • 00:23:48.090 --> 00:23:51.110
  • NOTHING WASTED.
  • 00:23:51.130 --> 00:23:54.060
  • SO YOU LOOK AT ALL THOSE SCARS.
  • 00:23:54.080 --> 00:23:56.260
  • YOU TAKE ALL THOSE WOUNDS.
  • 00:23:56.280 --> 00:23:58.130
  • PEOPLE ASKED ME, HOW DO YOU HAVE INSIGHT INTO PEOPLE?
  • 00:23:58.150 --> 00:23:59.290
  • I GO, I JUST LOOK INSIDE AND SEE ALL THE
  • 00:24:00.030 --> 00:24:01.170
  • BROKENNESS THAT I RECOGNIZE IN THE REST OF
  • 00:24:01.190 --> 00:24:02.280
  • THE WORLD.
  • 00:24:03.000 --> 00:24:04.130
  • YOU CAN SEE EVERYONE THROUGH YOUR OWN WOUNDS
  • 00:24:04.150 --> 00:24:06.150
  • IF YOU'LL TAKE THE TIME.
  • 00:24:06.170 --> 00:24:09.120
  • IT GOES ON TO SAY IN VERSE 22 ...
  • 00:24:09.140 --> 00:24:11.190
  • I LOOK AT THIS AND I GO, WHAT A WASTE.
  • 00:24:19.290 --> 00:24:22.090
  • HE WAS EDUCATED IN ALL THE WISDOM OF THE
  • 00:24:22.110 --> 00:24:23.230
  • EGYPTIANS AND POWERFUL IN SPEECH AND ACTION BUT HE
  • 00:24:23.250 --> 00:24:25.270
  • WASN'T GOING TO GROW UP TO BE AN EGYPTIAN.
  • 00:24:25.290 --> 00:24:29.170
  • HE'S EDUCATED IN THE WAYS OF EGYPTIANS BUT HE WAS
  • 00:24:29.190 --> 00:24:32.050
  • GOING TO LEAD THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:24:32.070 --> 00:24:34.290
  • HAVE YOU EVER FELT LIKE GOD DIDN'T REALLY THINK
  • 00:24:35.010 --> 00:24:38.170
  • AHEAD WITH YOU?
  • 00:24:38.190 --> 00:24:40.190
  • YOU KNOW?
  • 00:24:40.210 --> 00:24:41.290
  • BECAUSE IF YOU COULD HAVE KNOWN WHAT GOD WANTED TO
  • 00:24:42.010 --> 00:24:45.120
  • DO WITH YOU, WOULDN'T YOU HAVE PREPARED DIFFERENTLY?
  • 00:24:45.140 --> 00:24:48.270
  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW WITH GOD NOTHING IS WASTED.
  • 00:24:48.290 --> 00:24:51.070
  • NOT ONLY WILL GOD USE EVERY WOUND YOU CARRY,
  • 00:24:51.090 --> 00:24:53.140
  • BUT GOD IS GOING TO USE EVERY SKILL YOU'VE EVER
  • 00:24:53.160 --> 00:24:55.080
  • LEARNED, EVERY EXPERIENCE YOU'VE EVER
  • 00:24:55.100 --> 00:24:57.080
  • GONE THROUGH.
  • 00:24:57.100 --> 00:24:58.140
  • IT'S NOT WASTED WITH GOD.
  • 00:24:58.160 --> 00:24:59.270
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:24:59.290 --> 00:25:04.170
  • I LOOK BACK, I MEAN, THIS SUMMER I TURNED 60 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:25:04.190 --> 00:25:08.260
  • I'M STILL TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT I'M GOING
  • 00:25:08.280 --> 00:25:10.080
  • TO DO WHEN I GROW UP.
  • 00:25:10.100 --> 00:25:12.040
  • I'VE HAD SO MANY MIDLIFE CRISES I JUST KEEP
  • 00:25:12.060 --> 00:25:15.230
  • DIVIDED MYSELF IN HALF.
  • 00:25:15.250 --> 00:25:17.170
  • HAVE YOU EVER FELT LIKE IF I'D JUST KNOWN?
  • 00:25:17.190 --> 00:25:22.200
  • I DIDN'T KNOW.
  • 00:25:22.220 --> 00:25:24.280
  • SO MY LIFE HAS BEEN JUST THIS MEANDERING GOING
  • 00:25:25.000 --> 00:25:27.070
  • THROUGH ALL THESE DIFFERENT THINGS.
  • 00:25:27.090 --> 00:25:28.130
  • WHO COULD HAVE GUESSED?
  • 00:25:28.150 --> 00:25:30.270
  • I THINK IT'S FUNNY WHEN PEOPLE GO IT'S SO
  • 00:25:30.290 --> 00:25:32.230
  • FASCINATING YOU WERE IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY AND
  • 00:25:32.250 --> 00:25:34.170
  • THE FILM INDUSTRY AND YOU WORKED AS A -- I GO THAT
  • 00:25:34.190 --> 00:25:37.080
  • JUST MEANS I AM CONTINUOUSLY UNEMPLOYED
  • 00:25:37.100 --> 00:25:39.120
  • SEARCHING FOR A JOB THAT I COULD DO.
  • 00:25:39.140 --> 00:25:41.220
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:25:41.240 --> 00:25:45.110
  • I'VE DONE EVERYTHING.
  • 00:25:45.130 --> 00:25:46.180
  • I'VE BEEN A CARPENTER, WORKED CONSTRUCTION.
  • 00:25:46.200 --> 00:25:47.120
  • I WAS A LIBRARIAN.
  • 00:25:47.140 --> 00:25:48.120
  • WHO COULD HAVE IMAGINED THAT?
  • 00:25:48.140 --> 00:25:49.110
  • I PICKED ORANGES HERE IN FLORIDA.
  • 00:25:49.130 --> 00:25:51.170
  • I WAS A LUMBERJACK.
  • 00:25:51.190 --> 00:25:55.200
  • AND I FLIPPED BURGERS AND MADE PIZZAS.
  • 00:25:55.220 --> 00:25:58.150
  • I MEAN, I'VE HAD EVERY CAREER IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:25:58.170 --> 00:26:00.090
  • WHY?
  • 00:26:00.110 --> 00:26:01.160
  • BECAUSE I HAD NO IDEA WHAT TO DO WITH MY LIFE.
  • 00:26:01.180 --> 00:26:03.120
  • AND I WOULD THINK, OH GOD, COULDN'T YOU HAVE
  • 00:26:03.140 --> 00:26:05.020
  • JUST LIKE GIVEN ME A HEADS UP?
  • 00:26:05.040 --> 00:26:08.230
  • BECAUSE I WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN LIKE AN EXTREME
  • 00:26:08.250 --> 00:26:12.070
  • SOCIAL INTROVERT WITH SOCIAL ANXIETY DISORDER
  • 00:26:12.090 --> 00:26:14.280
  • IF I WAS GOING TO KNOW I'D BE SPEAKING TO PEOPLE.
  • 00:26:15.000 --> 00:26:18.070
  • I WOULD HAVE TRIED A LITTLE DIFFERENT ROUTE.
  • 00:26:18.090 --> 00:26:24.160
  • I FINISHED HIGH SCHOOL, WITH STRAIGHT D'S,
  • 00:26:24.180 --> 00:26:26.210
  • FIRST THROUGH TWELFTH GRADE.
  • 00:26:26.230 --> 00:26:29.070
  • THAT'S NOT EXACTLY ACCURATE.
  • 00:26:29.090 --> 00:26:31.120
  • I THINK I PROBABLY GOT LIKE A B IN P.E., COUPLE
  • 00:26:31.140 --> 00:26:35.200
  • OF C'S HERE AND THERE, AND NEVER REALLY GOT F'S,
  • 00:26:35.220 --> 00:26:38.270
  • BECAUSE THAT WOULD REQUIRE ME TO GO BACK.
  • 00:26:38.290 --> 00:26:43.290
  • BUT THE ONLY REASON I GRADUATED FROM HIGH
  • 00:26:44.010 --> 00:26:45.070
  • SCHOOL, BECAUSE MY ENGLISH TEACHER WAS NOT
  • 00:26:45.090 --> 00:26:47.180
  • GONNA PASS ME, IS SHE WAS GONNA GIVE ME AN F ON THE
  • 00:26:47.200 --> 00:26:51.140
  • LAST DAY OF MY SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL,
  • 00:26:51.160 --> 00:26:53.030
  • SENIOR DAY, LAST DAY.
  • 00:26:53.050 --> 00:26:54.150
  • AND I WENT TO THE PRINCIPAL AND I SAID I
  • 00:26:54.170 --> 00:26:56.170
  • NEED AN E, A D, I JUST, I CAN'T GRADUATE WITH AN F.
  • 00:26:56.190 --> 00:27:01.150
  • HE GOES WELL IF YOU DIDN'T EARN MORE THAN AN
  • 00:27:01.170 --> 00:27:06.010
  • F, THAT'S WHAT YOU GET. I SAID YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:27:06.030 --> 00:27:08.150
  • I REMEMBER TELLING HIM THIS.
  • 00:27:08.170 --> 00:27:09.260
  • IF YOU FAIL ME, I'LL BE BACK.
  • 00:27:09.280 --> 00:27:12.130
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:27:12.150 --> 00:27:16.100
  • THAT'S NOT GOOD FOR ME, THAT'S NOT GOOD FOR YOU,
  • 00:27:16.120 --> 00:27:20.230
  • THAT'S NOT GONNA BE GOOD FOR ANYONE HERE.
  • 00:27:20.250 --> 00:27:24.200
  • I'M CONVINCED THEY GRADUATED ME FROM HIGH
  • 00:27:24.220 --> 00:27:26.270
  • SCHOOL OUT OF THE THREAT OF MY RETURN.
  • 00:27:26.290 --> 00:27:29.070
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:27:29.090 --> 00:27:32.070
  • MY BROTHER WENT OFF TO PLAY COLLEGE FOOTBALL AND
  • 00:27:32.090 --> 00:27:34.000
  • I JUST DID JOBS. DID NOTHING. JUST WASTED MY LIFE.
  • 00:27:34.020 --> 00:27:40.030
  • OH, GOD, COULDN'T YOU HAVE LIKE TALKED TO ME...
  • 00:27:40.050 --> 00:27:43.190
  • YOU'RE GONNA NEED TO DO YOUR HOMEWORK.
  • 00:27:43.210 --> 00:27:46.200
  • YOU SHOULD PROBABLY PAY ATTENTION IN SCHOOL.
  • 00:27:46.220 --> 00:27:49.240
  • YOU SHOULDN'T JUST WANDER AROUND DOING NOTHING WITH
  • 00:27:49.260 --> 00:27:52.040
  • YOUR LIFE, MOVING FROM OCCUPATION TO
  • 00:27:52.060 --> 00:27:54.000
  • OCCUPATION TO OCCUPATION.
  • 00:27:54.020 --> 00:27:56.090
  • AND THEN I BEGGED MY WAY INTO COLLEGE, NOT BECAUSE
  • 00:27:56.110 --> 00:27:58.050
  • I COULD GET IN, BECAUSE I KNEW I COULDN'T GET IN.
  • 00:27:58.070 --> 00:28:00.160
  • I WALKED INTO THE OFFICE OF LIKE THE PROVOST OF
  • 00:28:00.180 --> 00:28:02.290
  • THE UNIVERSITY, AND I NEEDED TO MEET WITH THIS
  • 00:28:03.010 --> 00:28:05.230
  • GUY, AND THEY WOULDN'T LET ME IN.
  • 00:28:05.250 --> 00:28:07.210
  • AND THEN I WAS OUT OF MY MIND.
  • 00:28:07.230 --> 00:28:08.240
  • I WAS A LITTLE CRAZY.
  • 00:28:08.260 --> 00:28:10.150
  • AND I SAID I NEED TO MEET WITH THE GUY IN CHARGE,
  • 00:28:10.170 --> 00:28:11.230
  • THE PRESIDENT. YOU'RE NOT GONNA GET TO
  • 00:28:11.250 --> 00:28:13.060
  • MEET THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSITY.
  • 00:28:13.080 --> 00:28:14.120
  • I NEED TO MEET WITH THE PRESIDENT!
  • 00:28:14.140 --> 00:28:16.090
  • SO OUT OF, I DON'T KNOW, FEAR, THEY JUST LET ME
  • 00:28:16.110 --> 00:28:18.140
  • MEET WITH THE GUY.
  • 00:28:18.160 --> 00:28:19.280
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:28:20.000 --> 00:28:21.120
  • AND I GO TO THIS GUY AND I SAID I NEED YOU TO LET
  • 00:28:21.140 --> 00:28:23.110
  • ME INTO YOUR UNIVERSITY.
  • 00:28:23.130 --> 00:28:25.160
  • HE GOES WELL THERE'S A PROCESS.
  • 00:28:25.180 --> 00:28:27.030
  • YOU NEED TO BRING YOUR APPLICATION AND YOUR GRADES.
  • 00:28:27.050 --> 00:28:28.230
  • NO! IF YOU SEE MY GRADES AND MY APPLICATION,
  • 00:28:28.250 --> 00:28:33.200
  • YOU WILL NEVER LET ME IN.
  • 00:28:33.220 --> 00:28:35.170
  • I REMEMBER LOOKING AT THIS GUY SAYING I NEED
  • 00:28:35.190 --> 00:28:37.120
  • YOU TO LOOK ME IN THE EYES, I NEED YOU TO
  • 00:28:37.140 --> 00:28:39.060
  • DECIDE TO GIVE ONE HUMAN BEING A CHANCE.
  • 00:28:39.080 --> 00:28:43.060
  • I DON'T KNOW WHY BUT HE LET ME IN.
  • 00:28:43.080 --> 00:28:45.030
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:28:45.050 --> 00:28:47.130
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:28:47.150 --> 00:28:52.100
  • I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO SO I STARTED STUDYING PHILOSOPHY.
  • 00:28:52.120 --> 00:28:54.100
  • I DIDN'T KNOW THERE WERE OTHER PEOPLE IN THE WORLD
  • 00:28:54.120 --> 00:28:55.240
  • WONDERING WHY THEY EXISTED.
  • 00:28:55.260 --> 00:28:58.170
  • AND IT'S SO FUNNY PEOPLE THOUGHT YOU'RE STUDYING
  • 00:28:58.190 --> 00:29:00.260
  • PHILOSOPHY BECAUSE YOU'RE INTELLECTUAL.
  • 00:29:00.280 --> 00:29:02.080
  • NO! I WAS IN A DESPERATE SEARCH TO KNOW WHY I EXISTED.
  • 00:29:02.100 --> 00:29:08.250
  • I WASN'T TRYING TO BE AN INTELLECTUAL
  • 00:29:08.270 --> 00:29:10.190
  • OR AN ACADEMIC.
  • 00:29:10.210 --> 00:29:12.120
  • I WAS HOPING THESE PEOPLE WERE AS DESPERATE TO
  • 00:29:12.140 --> 00:29:14.090
  • UNDERSTAND WHY WE WERE HERE AS I WAS.
  • 00:29:14.110 --> 00:29:18.070
  • SO I JUST FOUND MYSELF DEVOURING EVERYONE FROM
  • 00:29:18.090 --> 00:29:21.060
  • PLATO, TO SOCRATES, TO ARISTOTLE, TO LOCKE, AND
  • 00:29:21.080 --> 00:29:23.290
  • HUME, AND ALL THE WAY THROUGH, AND I DIDN'T KNOW
  • 00:29:24.010 --> 00:29:28.280
  • I WAS GONNA BE LIKE A FOLLOWER OF JESUS.
  • 00:29:29.000 --> 00:29:30.230
  • WHY DID I WASTE SO MUCH TIME?
  • 00:29:30.250 --> 00:29:33.040
  • THEN WHEN I FINISHED EVERYTHING IN PHILOSOPHY,
  • 00:29:33.060 --> 00:29:35.230
  • I THOUGHT OKAY, LET'S DO PSYCHOLOGY BECAUSE
  • 00:29:35.250 --> 00:29:37.270
  • I DIDN'T KNOW THAT I WASN'T GONNA NEED IT.
  • 00:29:37.290 --> 00:29:40.070
  • I BECAME A CHRISTIAN AND THEY SAID YOU SHOULDN'T
  • 00:29:40.090 --> 00:29:42.060
  • BE STUDYING PHILOSOPHY. I SAID IT'S TOO LATE.
  • 00:29:42.080 --> 00:29:44.190
  • I READ PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING.
  • 00:29:44.210 --> 00:29:46.080
  • AND THEY SAID YOU NEED TO BURN THE BOOKS.
  • 00:29:46.100 --> 00:29:48.200
  • I SAID IF YOU CAN GET THEM OUT OF YOUR HEAD.
  • 00:29:48.220 --> 00:29:50.050
  • SO I GOT RID OF ALL THE BOOKS BECAUSE CHRISTIANS
  • 00:29:50.070 --> 00:29:53.080
  • TOLD ME THAT THAT'S THE EGYPTIANS.
  • 00:29:53.100 --> 00:29:57.020
  • THAT'S THE WISDOM OF THE EGYPTIANS.
  • 00:29:57.040 --> 00:29:59.230
  • GET THAT OUT OF YOUR LIFE!
  • 00:29:59.250 --> 00:30:01.140
  • I WANT MY BOOKS BACK! SORRY.
  • 00:30:01.160 --> 00:30:03.210
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:30:03.230 --> 00:30:06.170
  • AND THEN WHEN I STUDIED PSYCHOLOGY, THEY SAID NO,
  • 00:30:06.190 --> 00:30:08.040
  • PSYCHOLOGY, THAT'S THE WORLD, FREUD AND ADLER,
  • 00:30:08.060 --> 00:30:13.000
  • AND JUNG, GESTALT THERAPY, THAT'S THE WORLD.
  • 00:30:13.020 --> 00:30:15.190
  • YOU NEED TO STAY WITH THE BIBLE.
  • 00:30:15.210 --> 00:30:17.030
  • THEN WHY DO YOU THINK GOD LET MOSES BE EDUCATED
  • 00:30:17.050 --> 00:30:18.260
  • IN THE WISDOM OF THE EGYPTIANS?
  • 00:30:18.280 --> 00:30:22.010
  • AND POWERFUL IN THE SPEECH AND ACTION. SEE, I--
  • 00:30:22.030 --> 00:30:24.030
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:30:24.050 --> 00:30:26.080
  • I THINK SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY WE THOUGHT FAITH
  • 00:30:26.100 --> 00:30:28.140
  • WAS OUR ABSOLUTION FROM THINKING.
  • 00:30:28.160 --> 00:30:32.040
  • AND WE HAVE MADE OUR FAITH A STUPID EXPRESSION
  • 00:30:32.060 --> 00:30:37.140
  • OF BELIEF IN GOD.
  • 00:30:37.160 --> 00:30:39.260
  • I'M JUST SHOOTING STRAIGHT.
  • 00:30:39.280 --> 00:30:41.220
  • PASTOR RICH CAN FIX THIS LATER.
  • 00:30:41.240 --> 00:30:43.040
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:30:43.060 --> 00:30:45.050
  • HERE'S THE THING IS THAT YOU SHOULD BE EDUCATED IN
  • 00:30:45.070 --> 00:30:48.030
  • THE WISDOM OF THE EGYPTIANS BECAUSE WITH
  • 00:30:48.050 --> 00:30:51.070
  • GOD, NOTHING'S WASTED.
  • 00:30:51.090 --> 00:30:53.220
  • DON'T LET ANYONE TELL YOU YOUR PAST WAS A WASTE.
  • 00:30:53.240 --> 00:30:56.170
  • I LOOK BACK NOW, I GO OH, MAN, I WAS READING ALL
  • 00:30:56.190 --> 00:30:59.130
  • THAT CONTRABAND WHEN I WAS TEN YEARS OLD,
  • 00:30:59.150 --> 00:31:01.260
  • READING ROBERT HEINLEIN, ISAAC ASIMOV, ANDRE NORTON.
  • 00:31:01.280 --> 00:31:05.170
  • I WAS READING ALL THE SCIENCE FICTION, AND
  • 00:31:05.190 --> 00:31:07.270
  • I WASN'T PAYING ATTENTION IN SCHOOL.
  • 00:31:07.290 --> 00:31:09.160
  • ALL I DID, I JUST WASTED MY TIME EXPANDING MY
  • 00:31:09.180 --> 00:31:11.290
  • IMAGINATION, IMAGINING OTHER UNIVERSES AND
  • 00:31:12.010 --> 00:31:13.260
  • DIMENSIONS AND OTHER POSSIBILITIES.
  • 00:31:13.280 --> 00:31:15.240
  • HOW COULD I HAVE EVER THOUGHT THAT GOD COULD
  • 00:31:15.260 --> 00:31:17.180
  • USE THAT TO EXPAND MY IMAGINATION, MY
  • 00:31:17.200 --> 00:31:19.210
  • CREATIVITY, MY FAITH.
  • 00:31:19.230 --> 00:31:21.140
  • SEE, WITH GOD NOTHING'S WASTED.
  • 00:31:21.160 --> 00:31:23.240
  • ROBERT HEINLEIN DIDN'T KNOW HE WAS MENTORING ME
  • 00:31:23.260 --> 00:31:26.100
  • FOR MINISTRY. HE DIDN'T KNOW THAT.
  • 00:31:26.120 --> 00:31:31.290
  • WHO WOULD HAVE EVER KNOWN PHILOSOPHY, THE LOVE OF
  • 00:31:32.010 --> 00:31:33.090
  • WISDOM, COULD ACTUALLY BE HELPFUL LATER WHEN WE'RE
  • 00:31:33.110 --> 00:31:35.120
  • TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT DO I DO WITH MY LIFE!
  • 00:31:35.140 --> 00:31:37.290
  • WHO COULD HAVE EVER KNOWN PSYCHOLOGY, WHICH MEANS
  • 00:31:38.010 --> 00:31:40.210
  • THE STUDY OF THE SOUL, WOULD BE WHAT I WOULD
  • 00:31:40.230 --> 00:31:43.060
  • ACTUALLY BE DOING THE REST OF MY LIFE TRYING TO
  • 00:31:43.080 --> 00:31:45.020
  • UNDERSTAND THE SOUL.
  • 00:31:45.040 --> 00:31:46.200
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:31:46.220 --> 00:31:50.280
  • I KNOW SOME OF YOU HERE YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:31:51.000 --> 00:31:53.060
  • I DON'T HAVE ANY EDUCATION! SOME OF YOU ARE LIKE
  • 00:31:53.080 --> 00:31:56.250
  • I NEVER WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL OR COLLEGE.
  • 00:31:56.270 --> 00:32:00.090
  • MAN, I KNOW WHERE EDUCATION COMES FROM.
  • 00:32:00.110 --> 00:32:03.150
  • IT COMES FROM THE STREET.
  • 00:32:03.170 --> 00:32:06.200
  • I SPENT TEN YEARS OF MY LIFE WORKING WITH DRUG
  • 00:32:06.220 --> 00:32:08.160
  • CARTELS. TEN YEARS OF MY LIFE WALKING IN ROOMS WITH
  • 00:32:08.180 --> 00:32:11.210
  • COCAINE STACKED TO THE CEILINGS, OOZY MACHINE
  • 00:32:11.230 --> 00:32:13.160
  • GUNS EVERYWHERE.
  • 00:32:13.180 --> 00:32:15.090
  • IT LOOKED LIKE THAT WAS AN EDUCATION.
  • 00:32:15.110 --> 00:32:17.180
  • BUT LET ME TELL YOU NOTHING PREPARED ME
  • 00:32:17.200 --> 00:32:19.040
  • BETTER FOR WHAT I WAS GONNA DO IN THE FUTURE
  • 00:32:19.060 --> 00:32:21.140
  • THAN WALKING INTO A PLACE I DIDN'T KNOW
  • 00:32:21.160 --> 00:32:22.260
  • I COULDN'T WALK OUT.
  • 00:32:22.280 --> 00:32:24.140
  • NOTHING WILL BUILD YOUR MUSCLE OF FAITH KNOWING
  • 00:32:24.160 --> 00:32:26.190
  • THIS MIGHT BE THE LAST TIME YOU EVER HAVE A
  • 00:32:26.210 --> 00:32:28.180
  • CONVERSATION WITH ANY HUMAN BEING.
  • 00:32:28.200 --> 00:32:30.120
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:32:30.140 --> 00:32:34.140
  • STEPHEN DIDN'T KNOW THIS WAS HIS LAST TIME.
  • 00:32:34.160 --> 00:32:37.250
  • HE THOUGHT IT WAS HIS FIRST TIME.
  • 00:32:37.270 --> 00:32:42.050
  • THERE'S SOME OF YOU HERE, YOU'VE ALLOWED A LIE
  • 00:32:42.070 --> 00:32:45.000
  • INTO YOUR SOUL SAYING YOU DON'T HAVE WHAT IT TAKES.
  • 00:32:45.020 --> 00:32:47.190
  • ALL YOU'VE GOT IS EDUCATED ON THE STREET!
  • 00:32:47.210 --> 00:32:52.060
  • ONE TIME MY SON AARON ASKED ME WHEN I WAS
  • 00:32:52.280 --> 00:32:54.260
  • YOUNGER, HEY DAD, HOW COME ALL THE PASTORS FROM THE
  • 00:32:54.280 --> 00:32:57.280
  • SUBURBS TALK AND LOOK SO, LIKE, STREET.
  • 00:32:58.000 --> 00:33:02.290
  • AND YOU'RE LIKE STREET AND YOU DON'T DRESS AND
  • 00:33:03.010 --> 00:33:07.070
  • TALK LIKE THAT.
  • 00:33:07.090 --> 00:33:09.290
  • I SAYS 'CAUSE WHEN YOU COME FROM THE STREET,
  • 00:33:10.010 --> 00:33:12.000
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO ACT LIKE FROM THE STREET.
  • 00:33:12.020 --> 00:33:14.150
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:33:14.170 --> 00:33:18.170
  • BECAUSE YOU LEARN SOMETHING ON THE STREET.
  • 00:33:18.190 --> 00:33:21.110
  • AND LET ME TELL YOU MOSES LEARNED SOMETHING ON THE
  • 00:33:21.130 --> 00:33:23.170
  • STREETS. HE WAS BEING EDUCATED IN THE MOST VIOLENT
  • 00:33:23.190 --> 00:33:27.020
  • DANGEROUS HOUSE IN THE WORLD, UNDER THE MOST DARK
  • 00:33:27.040 --> 00:33:30.210
  • AND DEMENTED HUMAN BEING HE WOULD EVER KNOW, AND
  • 00:33:30.230 --> 00:33:33.230
  • GOD USED THAT DARKNESS TO TEACH HIM HOW TO FOLLOW
  • 00:33:33.250 --> 00:33:36.170
  • THE LIGHT. HOWEVER WE'RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME.
  • 00:33:36.190 --> 00:33:42.150
  • SO THEN WHEN MOSES WAS 40 YEARS OLD, GETTING CLOSER
  • 00:33:42.170 --> 00:33:45.110
  • TO MY AGE, WE'RE GETTING CLOSER.
  • 00:33:45.130 --> 00:33:48.110
  • WE'RE ONLY 20 YEARS OFF, SO WE GOT A WHILE.
  • 00:33:48.130 --> 00:33:51.100
  • WE STILL HAVE TIME. WE STILL HAVE TIME.
  • 00:33:51.120 --> 00:33:53.150
  • BECAUSE WITH GOD, NOTHING'S WASTED.
  • 00:33:53.170 --> 00:33:56.080
  • WHEN HE SAW ONE OF THEM BEING MISTREATED BY AN
  • 00:33:56.100 --> 00:33:57.250
  • EGYPTIAN, HE WENT TO HIS DEFENSE AND AVENGED HIM
  • 00:33:57.270 --> 00:33:59.220
  • BY KILLING THE EGYPTIAN.
  • 00:33:59.240 --> 00:34:01.070
  • NOW VERSE 25 IS REALLY TO ME SO INSIGHTFUL.
  • 00:34:01.090 --> 00:34:05.080
  • MOSES THOUGHT THAT HIS OWN PEOPLE WOULD REALIZE
  • 00:34:05.100 --> 00:34:08.020
  • THAT GOD WAS USING HIM TO RESCUE THEM,
  • 00:34:08.040 --> 00:34:10.290
  • BUT THEY DID NOT.
  • 00:34:11.010 --> 00:34:12.150
  • OKAY, I KNOW WHEN YOU READ THE BIBLE YOU THINK
  • 00:34:12.170 --> 00:34:15.040
  • THE GOOD GUYS ALWAYS DO THE RIGHT THING.
  • 00:34:15.060 --> 00:34:17.090
  • BUT THEY DON'T BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT GOOD GUYS.
  • 00:34:17.110 --> 00:34:19.290
  • THEY'RE JUST GUYS. TRYING TO DO GOOD.
  • 00:34:20.010 --> 00:34:23.090
  • SO HERE MOSES HAS BEEN RAISED BY PHARAOH FOR
  • 00:34:23.110 --> 00:34:25.250
  • 40 YEARS, HE COMES OUT TO SEE HIS OWN PEOPLE FOR
  • 00:34:25.270 --> 00:34:28.100
  • THE FIRST TIME, AND HE SEES AN EGYPTIAN
  • 00:34:28.120 --> 00:34:31.020
  • MISTREATING A HEBREW.
  • 00:34:31.040 --> 00:34:33.090
  • NOW DO YOU KNOW THAT THIS WAS HAPPENING ALL THE TIME?
  • 00:34:33.110 --> 00:34:36.120
  • EVERY DAY. FOR 40 YEARS.
  • 00:34:36.140 --> 00:34:39.130
  • THIS WAS HAPPENING NOT ONLY IN THAT MOMENT
  • 00:34:39.150 --> 00:34:41.140
  • BUT TO EVERY HEBREW BY EVERY EGYPTIAN.
  • 00:34:41.160 --> 00:34:45.110
  • BUT MOSES ACTS LIKE THIS IS HIS MOMENT.
  • 00:34:45.130 --> 00:34:47.290
  • SO HE KILLS THE EGYPTIAN!
  • 00:34:48.010 --> 00:34:51.010
  • AND WE ACT LIKE SEE, THERE'S MOSES DOING WHAT
  • 00:34:51.030 --> 00:34:53.000
  • GOD WANTED HIM TO DO.
  • 00:34:53.020 --> 00:34:54.070
  • NO! GOD DID NOT WANT HIM TO KILL THE EGYPTIAN.
  • 00:34:54.090 --> 00:34:57.270
  • THAT'S A BAD IDEA IN CASE YOU'RE THINKING.
  • 00:34:57.290 --> 00:34:59.280
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:35:00.020 --> 00:35:02.110
  • THINK ABOUT THIS. THAT WAS PLAN A?
  • 00:35:02.130 --> 00:35:06.110
  • KILL THE EGYPTIAN.
  • 00:35:06.130 --> 00:35:08.030
  • COULDN'T YOU TRY LIKE I'M PHARAOH'S SON, COMMAND
  • 00:35:08.050 --> 00:35:12.210
  • THE EGYPTIAN. HOW ABOUT CHANGE THE CULTURE.
  • 00:35:12.230 --> 00:35:17.080
  • DO NOT TREAT HEBREWS LIKE THIS.
  • 00:35:17.100 --> 00:35:19.120
  • LET'S CHANGE THE PATTERN.
  • 00:35:19.140 --> 00:35:21.100
  • I MEAN THERE WERE A LOT OF OPTIONS FOR MOSES.
  • 00:35:21.120 --> 00:35:25.130
  • HE CHOSE OPTION A, KILL THE EGYPTIAN. WHY?
  • 00:35:25.150 --> 00:35:29.160
  • HE WAS NOT YET REFLECTIVE OF GOD'S CHARACTER.
  • 00:35:29.180 --> 00:35:33.010
  • HE WAS REFLECTIVE OF PHARAOH'S CHARACTER.
  • 00:35:33.030 --> 00:35:36.190
  • SEE, THAT'S PHARAOH'S STRATEGY.
  • 00:35:36.210 --> 00:35:38.260
  • IF YOU DON'T LIKE 'EM, KILL 'EM!
  • 00:35:38.280 --> 00:35:42.140
  • IF YOU DON'T AGREE WITH WHAT THEY'RE DOING, KILL
  • 00:35:42.160 --> 00:35:44.210
  • THEM. PHARAOH HAS ONE STRATEGY: KILL 'EM.
  • 00:35:44.230 --> 00:35:47.290
  • AND I THINK IT'S SO INTERESTING IT SAYS MOSES
  • 00:35:48.010 --> 00:35:51.040
  • THOUGHT THAT THEY WOULD RECOGNIZE HIM AS COMING
  • 00:35:51.060 --> 00:35:55.080
  • FROM GOD TO RESCUE THEM, BUT HOW IN THE WORLD WILL
  • 00:35:55.100 --> 00:36:00.110
  • ANYONE EVER RECOGNIZE YOU AS COMING FROM GOD IF YOU
  • 00:36:00.130 --> 00:36:03.250
  • DO NOT REFLECT THE CHARACTER OF GOD?
  • 00:36:03.270 --> 00:36:05.290
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:36:06.010 --> 00:36:12.210
  • I LOVE HOW SUBTLE STEPHEN IS.
  • 00:36:12.230 --> 00:36:14.230
  • BUT THEY DID NOT. THEY DIDN'T SEE IT.
  • 00:36:14.250 --> 00:36:19.170
  • MOSES THOUGHT THEY WOULD SEE IT.
  • 00:36:19.190 --> 00:36:20.260
  • THIS IS HOW BROKEN MOSES WAS.
  • 00:36:20.280 --> 00:36:22.060
  • WE TRY TO ACT LIKE THE PEOPLE IN THE BIBLE WERE
  • 00:36:22.080 --> 00:36:23.240
  • NOT BROKEN. THEY'RE JUST AS BROKEN AS WE ARE.
  • 00:36:23.260 --> 00:36:27.060
  • MOSES WAS RAISED FOR 40 YEARS UNDER PHARAOH,
  • 00:36:27.080 --> 00:36:29.130
  • HE WAS A BROKEN MAN.
  • 00:36:29.150 --> 00:36:30.250
  • HE WAS SO BROKEN, THE FIRST TIME HE SAW A
  • 00:36:30.270 --> 00:36:32.230
  • SITUATION HE HAD THE POWER TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT,
  • 00:36:32.250 --> 00:36:34.250
  • HE USES HIS POWER TO DESTROY.
  • 00:36:34.270 --> 00:36:37.120
  • AND HE DIDN'T EVEN GET IT.
  • 00:36:37.140 --> 00:36:42.050
  • YOU KNOW WHAT SCARES ME IS WHEN I SEE PEOPLE
  • 00:36:42.070 --> 00:36:43.160
  • DOING DESTRUCTIVE THINGS AND THEY DON'T EVEN SEE
  • 00:36:43.180 --> 00:36:45.110
  • THAT THEY'RE DOING DESTRUCTIVE THINGS.
  • 00:36:45.130 --> 00:36:49.080
  • SO THEN IT SAYS THE NEXT DAY, AS IF IT WAS JUST
  • 00:36:49.100 --> 00:36:51.130
  • THE NEXT DAY AFTER YOU KILL SOMEONE. TUESDAY.
  • 00:36:51.150 --> 00:36:56.000
  • THE NEXT DAY MOSES CAME UPON TWO ISRAELITES
  • 00:36:56.020 --> 00:36:58.080
  • WHO WERE FIGHTING.
  • 00:36:58.100 --> 00:36:59.210
  • HE TRIED TO RECONCILE THEM SAYING MEN, YOU ARE
  • 00:36:59.230 --> 00:37:01.150
  • BROTHERS, WHY DO YOU WANT TO HURT EACH OTHER?
  • 00:37:01.170 --> 00:37:04.040
  • BUT THE MAN WHO WAS MISTREATING THE OTHER
  • 00:37:04.060 --> 00:37:05.140
  • PUSHED MOSES ASIDE AND SAID WHO MADE YOU RULER
  • 00:37:05.160 --> 00:37:08.160
  • AND JUDGE OVER US?
  • 00:37:08.180 --> 00:37:09.270
  • IT'S A GREAT QUESTION BECAUSE THEY ANSWER IT, GOD,
  • 00:37:09.290 --> 00:37:11.070
  • BUT NOT YET. BECAUSE HE'S NOT READY YET.
  • 00:37:11.090 --> 00:37:16.210
  • ARE YOU THINKING OF KILLING ME AS YOU KILLED
  • 00:37:16.230 --> 00:37:18.030
  • THE EGYPTIAN YESTERDAY?
  • 00:37:18.050 --> 00:37:19.230
  • ISN'T IT INTERESTING THAT IT WAS EASY FOR MOSES TO
  • 00:37:19.250 --> 00:37:22.020
  • KILL THE PERSON HE DID NOT WANT TO IDENTIFY WITH.
  • 00:37:22.040 --> 00:37:26.020
  • BUT HE DIDN'T KILL THE HEBREW WHEN HE WAS
  • 00:37:26.040 --> 00:37:27.230
  • MISTREATING ANOTHER HEBREW.
  • 00:37:27.250 --> 00:37:29.230
  • YOU SEE AS LONG AS WE THINK OF US VERSUS THEM,
  • 00:37:29.250 --> 00:37:32.190
  • WE WILL KEEP ROOM FOR VIOLENCE.
  • 00:37:32.210 --> 00:37:36.040
  • THE MOMENT WE ALL BECOME WE, PEACE COMES.
  • 00:37:36.060 --> 00:37:39.230
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:37:39.250 --> 00:37:45.190
  • AND THEN IT SAYS WHEN MOSES HEARD THIS, HE FLED
  • 00:37:45.210 --> 00:37:48.050
  • TO MIDIAN BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT EVERY HERO DOES.
  • 00:37:48.070 --> 00:37:50.050
  • THEY RUN FOR THEIR LIFE. AND HERE'S THE PHRASE.
  • 00:37:50.070 --> 00:37:53.080
  • WHERE HE SETTLED AS A FOREIGNER AND HAD TWO SONS.
  • 00:37:53.100 --> 00:37:56.100
  • I THINK THIS PHRASE IS REALLY IMPORTANT,
  • 00:37:56.120 --> 00:37:58.020
  • WHERE HE SETTLED, WHERE HE SETTLED, WHERE HE SETTLED.
  • 00:37:58.040 --> 00:38:03.070
  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW WITH GOD NOTHING'S WASTED
  • 00:38:03.090 --> 00:38:05.170
  • BECAUSE MOSES KILLS A MAN, RUNS FOR HIS LIFE
  • 00:38:05.190 --> 00:38:09.170
  • AND SETTLES FOR THE NEXT 40 YEARS.
  • 00:38:09.190 --> 00:38:12.190
  • THIS MAY BE SURPRISING BUT MOSES DIDN'T KILL
  • 00:38:12.210 --> 00:38:14.220
  • ANYBODY ELSE. IT WASN'T A PATTERN IN HIS LIFE.
  • 00:38:14.240 --> 00:38:18.220
  • HE WASN'T A KILLER. BUT HE DID KILL SOMEONE.
  • 00:38:18.240 --> 00:38:22.150
  • SEE, I FIND SOMETIMES WE TRY TO DEFINE PEOPLE
  • 00:38:22.170 --> 00:38:24.190
  • BY THEIR WORST MOMENT.
  • 00:38:24.210 --> 00:38:27.090
  • SO SOMEONE LIES AND WE CALL THEM A LIAR.
  • 00:38:27.110 --> 00:38:29.220
  • SOMEONE STEALS AND WE CALL THEM A THIEF.
  • 00:38:29.240 --> 00:38:31.210
  • SOMEONE KILLS AND WE CALL THEM A MURDERER.
  • 00:38:31.230 --> 00:38:34.050
  • HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED THAT WE TRY TO DEFINE
  • 00:38:34.070 --> 00:38:36.130
  • PEOPLE BY THEIR WORST MOMENTS SO WE THINK
  • 00:38:36.150 --> 00:38:38.220
  • THAT'S WHAT GOD DOES BUT I WANT YOU TO KNOW GOD IS
  • 00:38:38.240 --> 00:38:40.280
  • THE ONE PERSON THAT WILL NEVER DEFINE YOU
  • 00:38:41.000 --> 00:38:42.240
  • BY YOUR WORST MOMENT.
  • 00:38:42.260 --> 00:38:44.180
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:38:44.200 --> 00:38:50.100
  • SO MOSES RUNS FOR 40 YEARS, AND I WANT YOU TO
  • 00:38:50.120 --> 00:38:52.190
  • KNOW THAT THERE'S NOTHING WASTED WITH GOD.
  • 00:38:52.210 --> 00:38:54.170
  • EVERY TIME YOU FAIL THAT JUST BECOMES MATERIAL
  • 00:38:54.190 --> 00:38:56.290
  • FOR GOD TO CREATE A NEW FUTURE.
  • 00:38:57.010 --> 00:39:01.210
  • FOR 40 YEARS HE RUNS AND HE SETTLES,
  • 00:39:01.230 --> 00:39:04.130
  • AND THAT'S THE TRAGEDY.
  • 00:39:04.150 --> 00:39:05.280
  • SEE, NOT THAT HE BECAME A KILLER.
  • 00:39:06.000 --> 00:39:07.180
  • HE DIDN'T BECOME A MARAUDER, HE DIDN'T PULL
  • 00:39:07.200 --> 00:39:09.260
  • TOGETHER A BUNCH OF MEN RAIDING VILLAGE, AFTER
  • 00:39:09.280 --> 00:39:13.010
  • VILLAGE, AFTER VILLAGE.
  • 00:39:13.030 --> 00:39:15.040
  • MOSES JUST WENT AND SETTLED AND LIVED A LIFE
  • 00:39:15.060 --> 00:39:18.000
  • HE WAS NOT CREATED TO LIVE.
  • 00:39:18.020 --> 00:39:20.220
  • SEE, I THINK THE GREATEST DANGER IN YOUR LIFE IS
  • 00:39:20.240 --> 00:39:22.210
  • NOT THAT YOU'RE GOING TO BE A CRIMINAL.
  • 00:39:22.230 --> 00:39:24.040
  • YOU DID NOT WAKE UP THIS MORNING GOING DO I GO TO
  • 00:39:24.060 --> 00:39:27.190
  • VOUS CONFERENCE OR DO I ROB A BANK?
  • 00:39:27.210 --> 00:39:30.240
  • I'M NOT SURE. WHICH ONE DO I DO. THE DANGER FOR YOU
  • 00:39:30.260 --> 00:39:36.130
  • IS THAT YOU'RE GONNA SETTLE FOR A LIFE THAT IS
  • 00:39:36.150 --> 00:39:38.170
  • LESS THAN THE ONE GOD HAS FOR YOU BECAUSE THE
  • 00:39:38.190 --> 00:39:40.260
  • FAILURES OF YOUR PAST HAVE CONVINCED YOU THAT
  • 00:39:40.280 --> 00:39:43.150
  • THAT'S YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:39:43.170 --> 00:39:46.010
  • BUT I DON'T CARE HOW MANY TIMES YOU FAILED,
  • 00:39:46.030 --> 00:39:48.260
  • YOU ARE NOT A FAILURE.
  • 00:39:48.280 --> 00:39:51.180
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:39:51.200 --> 00:39:57.200
  • IT JUST MATERIAL.
  • 00:39:57.220 --> 00:39:59.190
  • MAYBE SOME OF YOU ARE LIKE YOU LOOK AT THESE
  • 00:39:59.210 --> 00:40:02.020
  • GUYS AND THEY'RE SO AMAZING TO ME.
  • 00:40:02.040 --> 00:40:05.100
  • DC IS SO GIFTED, AND RICH IS SO GOOD LOOKING AND--
  • 00:40:05.120 --> 00:40:09.040
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:40:09.060 --> 00:40:11.250
  • SHE'S SO GOOD LOOKING AND HE'S SO GIFTED.
  • 00:40:11.270 --> 00:40:14.010
  • EITHER WAY IT JUST FLIPS. IT'S REALLY CRAZY.
  • 00:40:14.030 --> 00:40:16.060
  • THEY WRITE BOOKS, THEY HAVE CHAD, ROBERT MADU,
  • 00:40:16.080 --> 00:40:21.170
  • SUPER TALENTED GUYS.
  • 00:40:21.190 --> 00:40:22.260
  • YOU EVER JUST FEEL LIKE WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?
  • 00:40:22.280 --> 00:40:25.010
  • YOU EVER FELT LIKE THAT?
  • 00:40:25.030 --> 00:40:26.130
  • LIKE YOU KNOW, WHEN I WAS YOUR AGE 34 YEARS OLD
  • 00:40:26.150 --> 00:40:29.100
  • I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MY LIFE.
  • 00:40:29.120 --> 00:40:31.020
  • I WAS JUST MOVING OUT TO L.A. RUNNING
  • 00:40:31.040 --> 00:40:32.160
  • FROM CHRISTIANITY TRYING TO CREATE A NEW LIFE.
  • 00:40:32.180 --> 00:40:34.230
  • I HAD NO IDEA WHAT MY FUTURE LOOKED LIKE.
  • 00:40:34.250 --> 00:40:37.090
  • I DIDN'T WRITE A BOOK UNTIL I WAS 40.
  • 00:40:37.110 --> 00:40:39.220
  • I REMEMBER SITTING WITH MY WIFE AT 50 IN A POOL
  • 00:40:39.240 --> 00:40:43.280
  • IN GREECE AND SAYING I THINK I'VE WASTED
  • 00:40:44.000 --> 00:40:47.160
  • MY WHOLE LIFE.
  • 00:40:47.180 --> 00:40:49.270
  • I DON'T KNOW IF I'VE EVER DONE ANYTHING THAT REALLY
  • 00:40:49.290 --> 00:40:51.090
  • MATTERED IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:40:51.110 --> 00:40:53.160
  • EVERY TIME YOU FAILED, YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL TO
  • 00:40:53.180 --> 00:40:58.050
  • NOT LET IT DEFINE YOU.
  • 00:40:58.070 --> 00:41:00.230
  • TO NOT LET THAT LIE SEEP INTO YOUR SOUL.
  • 00:41:00.250 --> 00:41:03.290
  • I WOULD JUST LOOK BACK AND GO I JUST DIDN'T KNOW.
  • 00:41:04.010 --> 00:41:07.070
  • I JUST HAD SO MUCH WASTED IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:41:07.090 --> 00:41:13.270
  • SOMETIMES THE WASTE IN MY LIFE HAS OVERWHELMED ME
  • 00:41:13.290 --> 00:41:18.010
  • GOING OH, IF I COULD HAVE JUST GOT THAT SOONER, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:41:18.030 --> 00:41:22.170
  • IF I COULD HAVE JUST UNDERSTOOD SOONER HOW
  • 00:41:22.190 --> 00:41:25.220
  • WITH GOD NOTHING'S WASTED, I THINK I WOULD
  • 00:41:25.240 --> 00:41:27.190
  • HAVE MOVED FURTHER AND FASTER AHEAD.
  • 00:41:27.210 --> 00:41:31.140
  • BUT THAT'S WHY I'M GOING OH, WE MAY BE THE OLD

  • I HAVE WAY MORE FAILURE THAN YOU SO I HAVE A LOT
  • 00:41:37.140 --> 00:41:41.170
  • MORE MATERIAL TO CREATE A FUTURE WITH.
  • 00:41:41.190 --> 00:41:43.160
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:41:43.180 --> 00:41:50.200
  • AND YOU KNOW I'M A CITY GUY SO WHEREVER THOSE

  • COWS AND SHEEP, WERE RELIEVING THEMSELVES IT

  • WAS LIKE I BROUGHT THE WRONG SHOES, MAN.
  • 00:42:03.210 --> 00:42:08.210
  • THESE SHOES, THEY NEED TO BE SAVED FROM THIS
  • 00:42:08.230 --> 00:42:14.000
  • OBSTACLE COURSE, AND THEY DON'T MOVE ANY OF THE POOP.
  • 00:42:14.020 --> 00:42:18.240
  • IT'S ALL JUST THERE.
  • 00:42:18.260 --> 00:42:21.000
  • MATTHEW'S LIKE BECAUSE OF NATURE, NOTHING'S WASTED.
  • 00:42:21.020 --> 00:42:25.250
  • IT LOOKED LIKE WASTE TO ME.
  • 00:42:25.270 --> 00:42:28.150
  • OH, NO, HE GOES THE WASTE IS FERTILIZER.
  • 00:42:28.170 --> 00:42:32.050
  • HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I THOUGHT MY
  • 00:42:32.070 --> 00:42:38.260
  • LIFE WAS JUST WASTE.
  • 00:42:38.280 --> 00:42:41.280
  • GOD GOES NO, ALL THOSE FAILURES, THAT'S NOT
  • 00:42:42.000 --> 00:42:45.240
  • WASTE; THAT'S FERTILIZER.
  • 00:42:45.260 --> 00:42:50.050
  • I'M JUST USING IT TO BUILD ON YOUR FUTURE AND

  • A NEW YOU.
  • 00:42:52.230 --> 00:42:56.190
  • BUT I GOT TO GET TO THIS LAST PART.
  • 00:42:56.210 --> 00:42:59.050
  • I'M GONNA DO THIS SO FAST.
  • 00:42:59.070 --> 00:43:02.010
  • NO, NO, I WANT TO RESPECT THE TIME.
  • 00:43:02.030 --> 00:43:04.080
  • IT SAYS AFTER 40 YEARS HAD PASSED, AN ANGEL
  • 00:43:04.100 --> 00:43:06.290
  • APPEARED TO MOSES IN THE FLAMES OF A BURNING BUSH
  • 00:43:07.010 --> 00:43:09.040
  • IN THE DESERT NEAR MOUNT SINAI, AND WHEN HE SAW
  • 00:43:09.060 --> 00:43:11.140
  • THIS HE WAS AMAZED AT THE SIGHT.
  • 00:43:11.160 --> 00:43:12.250
  • HE WENT OVER TO GET A CLOSER LOOK AND HEARD THE
  • 00:43:12.270 --> 00:43:14.100
  • LORD SAY I AM THE GOD OF YOUR FATHERS, ISAAC,
  • 00:43:14.120 --> 00:43:16.220
  • ABRAHAM AND JACOB.
  • 00:43:16.240 --> 00:43:18.280
  • AND MOSES TREMBLED WITH FEAR AND DID NOT DARE TO
  • 00:43:19.000 --> 00:43:20.270
  • LOOK. AND THEN THE LORD SAID TO HIM TAKE OFF YOUR
  • 00:43:20.290 --> 00:43:22.260
  • SANDALS, FOR THE PLACE YOU'RE STANDING IS HOLY
  • 00:43:22.280 --> 00:43:24.110
  • GROUND. WE'RE JUST GONNA GO RIGHT BY ALL THAT.
  • 00:43:24.130 --> 00:43:28.290
  • HE SAYS I HAVE INDEED SEEN THE OPPRESSION OF MY
  • 00:43:29.010 --> 00:43:30.240
  • PEOPLE IN EGYPT AND I'VE HEARD THEIR GROANING,
  • 00:43:30.260 --> 00:43:33.160
  • AND I'VE COME DOWN TO SET THEM FREE.
  • 00:43:33.180 --> 00:43:35.120
  • GOD SAID THIS IS WHAT I'M GONNA DO.
  • 00:43:35.140 --> 00:43:37.200
  • I'VE HEARD THEIR CRIES AND I'M COMING
  • 00:43:37.220 --> 00:43:39.140
  • TO SET THEM FREE.
  • 00:43:39.160 --> 00:43:41.050
  • BUT MOSES, I'M GOING HEY THANKS FOR LETTING ME
  • 00:43:41.070 --> 00:43:42.240
  • KNOW, THANKS FOR THE HEADS UP. GLAD TO HEAR IT.
  • 00:43:42.260 --> 00:43:46.100
  • THEN GOD SAYS NOW COME, I WILL SEND YOU BACK TO EGYPT.
  • 00:43:46.120 --> 00:43:50.210
  • ONE OF THE THINGS I LOVE ABOUT GOD IS WHENEVER
  • 00:43:50.230 --> 00:43:52.220
  • HE'S GONNA DO SOMETHING EPIC IN HISTORY,
  • 00:43:52.240 --> 00:43:55.130
  • HE REFUSES TO DO IT ALONE.
  • 00:43:55.150 --> 00:43:58.180
  • I DON'T UNDERSTAND THIS ABOUT GOD.
  • 00:43:58.200 --> 00:44:00.130
  • THEY'RE ASKING K.D., THERE'S A PROBLEM WITH STAFF NOT
  • 00:44:00.150 --> 00:44:03.230
  • GETTING THE MVP BECAUSE THE WARRIORS SWEPT THE
  • 00:44:03.250 --> 00:44:07.090
  • CAVS IN FOUR GAMES.
  • 00:44:07.110 --> 00:44:09.070
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:44:09.090 --> 00:44:11.250
  • AND K.D. SAYS WHO CARES WHO GOT THE MVP?
  • 00:44:11.270 --> 00:44:16.100
  • AND WE'RE AMAZED THAT STAFF DOESN'T SEEM TO
  • 00:44:16.120 --> 00:44:18.040
  • MATTER TO HIM THAT K.D. IS STEALING HIS LIGHT
  • 00:44:18.060 --> 00:44:25.160
  • BECAUSE THEY'RE WINNING CHAMPIONSHIPS TOGETHER.
  • 00:44:25.180 --> 00:44:27.190
  • THAT'S AMAZING, BUT WHAT I'M AMAZED WITH IS GOD
  • 00:44:27.210 --> 00:44:30.020
  • SAYS I'M GONNA SET MY PEOPLE FREE, BUT I'M
  • 00:44:30.040 --> 00:44:33.010
  • GONNA DO IT THROUGH YOU.
  • 00:44:33.030 --> 00:44:35.260
  • YOU'RE THE ONE WHO RAN. YOU'RE THE KILLER.
  • 00:44:35.280 --> 00:44:39.070
  • YOU'RE THE ONE WHO MADE ALL THOSE MISTAKES.
  • 00:44:39.090 --> 00:44:41.190
  • YOU'RE THE ONE WHO'S WASTED 40 YEARS ON TOP OF
  • 00:44:41.210 --> 00:44:43.240
  • 40 YEARS OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:44:43.260 --> 00:44:45.240
  • AND GOD SAYS I'M NOT THE ONE WHO NEEDS THIS AS
  • 00:44:45.260 --> 00:44:48.170
  • MUCH AS YOU DO.
  • 00:44:48.190 --> 00:44:50.260
  • YOU NEED TO STAND IN THIS MOMENT.
  • 00:44:50.280 --> 00:44:52.260
  • AND THIS IS WHAT STEPHEN SAYS.
  • 00:44:52.280 --> 00:44:54.100
  • THIS IS THE SAME MOSES, I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:44:54.120 --> 00:44:56.150
  • NOT A DIFFERENT MOSES.
  • 00:44:56.170 --> 00:44:57.230
  • THIS IS THE MOSES THAT WAS BORN AND SENT OUT
  • 00:44:57.250 --> 00:44:59.080
  • AFTER THREE MONTHS.
  • 00:44:59.100 --> 00:45:00.170
  • THIS IS THE MOSES THAT WAS BROKEN AND SHATTERED
  • 00:45:00.190 --> 00:45:01.240
  • BECAUSE HE NEVER NOW WHO HE WAS.
  • 00:45:01.260 --> 00:45:03.020
  • THIS WAS THE MOSES RAISED BY PHARAOH'S DAUGHTER AND
  • 00:45:03.040 --> 00:45:05.110
  • DIDN'T KNOW WHO HIS PEOPLE WERE.
  • 00:45:05.130 --> 00:45:07.190
  • THIS IS THE MOSES THE FIRST TIME HE STEPPED
  • 00:45:07.210 --> 00:45:09.060
  • OUT, HE KILLS AN EGYPTIAN.
  • 00:45:09.080 --> 00:45:10.180
  • THIS IS THE MOSES THAT WHEN HE'S CAUGHT,
  • 00:45:10.200 --> 00:45:12.080
  • HE RUNS FOR HIS LIFE.
  • 00:45:12.100 --> 00:45:13.220
  • THIS IS THE MOSES WHO SETTLED FOR LESS.
  • 00:45:13.240 --> 00:45:16.280
  • HE WASN'T LOOKING FOR GOD.
  • 00:45:17.000 --> 00:45:18.190
  • HE WASN'T LIKE I'M DONE RUNNING, I NEED GOD.
  • 00:45:18.210 --> 00:45:20.280
  • HE WAS STILL RUNNING BUT HERE'S THE AMAZING THING
  • 00:45:21.000 --> 00:45:23.070
  • ABOUT GOD. WHEN YOU RUN FROM GOD, HE'S WAITING
  • 00:45:23.090 --> 00:45:25.150
  • FOR YOU WHERE YOU'RE GOING.
  • 00:45:25.170 --> 00:45:27.250
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:45:27.270 --> 00:45:30.040
  • AND HE SAID TO HIM THIS IS THE SAME MOSES THEY
  • 00:45:30.060 --> 00:45:34.070
  • HAD REJECTED WITH THE WORDS WHO MADE YOU RULER AND JUDGE.
  • 00:45:34.090 --> 00:45:38.210
  • HE WAS SENT TO BE THE RULER AND DELIVERER BY
  • 00:45:38.230 --> 00:45:40.180
  • GOD HIMSELF THROUGH THE ANGEL WHO APPEARED
  • 00:45:40.200 --> 00:45:43.020
  • TO HIM IN THE BUSH.
  • 00:45:43.040 --> 00:45:45.020
  • HE LED THEM OUT OF EGYPT AND PERFORMED WONDERS AND
  • 00:45:45.040 --> 00:45:47.150
  • SIGNS IN EGYPT, AND AT RED SEA, AND HERE IT IS
  • 00:45:47.170 --> 00:45:50.140
  • AND FOR 40 YEARS IN THE WILDERNESS, THIS IS THE
  • 00:45:50.160 --> 00:45:54.090
  • SAME MOSES WHO TOLD ISRAELITES GOD WILL RAISE
  • 00:45:54.110 --> 00:45:57.180
  • UP FOR YOU A PROPHET LIKE ME FROM YOUR OWN PEOPLE.
  • 00:45:57.200 --> 00:46:01.260
  • WHAT WAS ABOUT TO HAPPEN IN MOSES LIFE, HE WAS
  • 00:46:01.280 --> 00:46:06.010
  • GONNA LEAD AN ENTIRE PEOPLE OUT AND THEY'RE
  • 00:46:06.030 --> 00:46:08.260
  • GONNA WANDER THE WORLD 40 YEARS, AND THE MOMENT
  • 00:46:08.280 --> 00:46:12.070
  • THEY GOT FREE, EVEN WHEN THEY SAW THE PARTING OF
  • 00:46:12.090 --> 00:46:14.090
  • THE RED SEA, THEY DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH
  • 00:46:14.110 --> 00:46:15.250
  • FAITH TO TRUST GOD.
  • 00:46:15.270 --> 00:46:17.200
  • AND THE MOMENT THEY WERE FREE, THEY WANTED TO GO
  • 00:46:17.220 --> 00:46:19.060
  • BACK TO CAPTIVITY.
  • 00:46:19.080 --> 00:46:20.130
  • THEY WANTED TO GO BACK TO EGYPT.
  • 00:46:20.150 --> 00:46:22.050
  • HOW ARE WE GONNA SURVIVE THIS?
  • 00:46:22.070 --> 00:46:23.080
  • THEY WERE AFRAID AFTER JUST FOUR DAYS.
  • 00:46:23.100 --> 00:46:26.010
  • IMAGINE IF THEY THOUGHT IT WOULD BE MORE THAN 40
  • 00:46:26.030 --> 00:46:28.110
  • DAYS. AND MORE THAN FOUR MONTHS.
  • 00:46:28.130 --> 00:46:31.040
  • AND MORE THAN FOUR YEARS.
  • 00:46:31.060 --> 00:46:32.150
  • IMAGINE IF THEY HAD KNOWN WE'RE GONNA BE WANDERING
  • 00:46:32.170 --> 00:46:34.260
  • THIS WILDERNESS FOR 40 YEARS!
  • 00:46:34.280 --> 00:46:38.140
  • NO ONE KNOWS HOW TO SURVIVE 40 YEARS IN THE
  • 00:46:38.160 --> 00:46:40.070
  • WILDERNESS, DO THEY?
  • 00:46:40.090 --> 00:46:44.090
  • MOSES WHEN HE WAS RUNNING FROM GOD, WHEN HE THOUGHT
  • 00:46:44.110 --> 00:46:50.020
  • ALL THOSE YEARS WERE WASTED, GOD WAS TEACHING
  • 00:46:50.040 --> 00:46:54.180
  • HIM HOW TO SURVIVE THE WILDERNESS FOR 40 YEARS
  • 00:46:54.200 --> 00:46:59.030
  • SO WHEN IT WAS TIME TO LEAD THE PEOPLE OUT,
  • 00:46:59.050 --> 00:47:02.040
  • THEY WERE AFRAID BUT HE SAID I'VE GOT THIS!
  • 00:47:02.060 --> 00:47:06.170
  • I'VE DONE THIS!
  • 00:47:06.190 --> 00:47:07.240
  • BEEN THERE, DONE THAT!
  • 00:47:07.260 --> 00:47:09.150
  • I KNOW WHAT IT IS TO WANDER FOR 40 YEARS.
  • 00:47:09.170 --> 00:47:12.120
  • I'M GONNA LEAD YOU IN AND LEAD YOU THROUGH
  • 00:47:12.140 --> 00:47:15.060
  • BECAUSE WITH GOD, NOTHING'S WASTED!
  • 00:47:15.080 --> 00:47:21.000
  • SO WE THINK WHAT A WASTE THAT A 33 YEAR OLD MAN WHO CAME TO
  • 00:47:21.020 --> 00:47:25.250
  • BRING THE HOPE AND LOVE AND PEACE TO THE WORLD,
  • 00:47:25.270 --> 00:47:28.160
  • WHAT A WASTE THAT THIS PROPHET WITH SUCH WISDOM
  • 00:47:28.180 --> 00:47:31.140
  • WOULD BE CRUCIFIED AT THE AGE OF 33.
  • 00:47:31.160 --> 00:47:34.250
  • YOU CAN LOOK AT JESUS ON THE CROSS AND GO
  • 00:47:34.270 --> 00:47:36.190
  • WHAT A WASTE.
  • 00:47:36.210 --> 00:47:40.040
  • BUT ON THAT THIRD DAY, THAT THIRD DAY,
  • 00:47:40.060 --> 00:47:44.290
  • YOU COULD HEAR, YOU COULD HEAR THE ECHO IN ETERNITY!
  • 00:47:45.010 --> 00:47:50.150
  • WITH ME NOTHING'S WASTED!
  • 00:47:50.170 --> 00:47:55.280
