  • I AM JUST PASSING THROUGH.
  • 00:00:03.170 --> 00:00:05.030
  • I'VE COME FROM A DIFFERENT KINGDOM
  • 00:00:05.060 --> 00:00:06.090
  • THEREFORE I SHOULD THINK DIFFERENT
  • 00:00:06.120 --> 00:00:08.150
  • TO THE WAY OF THIS WORLD.
  • 00:00:08.180 --> 00:00:09.220
  • I SHOULD ACT DIFFERENT TO THE WAY OF THIS WORLD.
  • 00:00:09.250 --> 00:00:12.120
  • EVERYTHING ABOUT ME, I SHOULD TALK DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:00:12.150 --> 00:00:14.280
  • I SHOULD HOLD MYSELF DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:00:15.010 --> 00:00:16.260
  • I SHOULD WALK THROUGH THIS WORLD DIFFERENTLY
  • 00:00:16.290 --> 00:00:19.010
  • BECAUSE I SERVE A DIFFERENT KING,
  • 00:00:19.040 --> 00:00:20.200
  • I'M PART OF A DIFFERENT KINGDOM.
  • 00:00:20.230 --> 00:00:22.070
  • I AM NOT GOVERNED BY WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS WORLD.
  • 00:00:22.100 --> 00:00:25.120
  • [AUDIENCE CLAPPING] I AM SERVING KING JESUS.
  • 00:00:25.150 --> 00:00:29.140
  • LIFE ON EARTH CAN'T SATISFY
  • 00:00:29.170 --> 00:00:30.290
  • THE ETERNAL LONGINGS OF THE HEART.
  • 00:00:31.020 --> 00:00:33.020
  • THAT'S WHY WE NEED JESUS.
  • 00:00:33.050 --> 00:00:34.220
  • WE WEREN'T MADE FOR TEMPORAL LIVING.
  • 00:00:34.250 --> 00:00:36.270
  • BUT JESUS DOESN'T WHISK US AWAY TO HEAVEN
  • 00:00:37.000 --> 00:00:39.030
  • THE MOMENT WE ACCEPT HIM.
  • 00:00:39.060 --> 00:00:40.220
  • INSTEAD, HE USES US TO IMPACT THE WORLD FOR HIS KINGDOM.
  • 00:00:40.250 --> 00:00:45.040
  • SO HOW DO WE LIVE AS CITIZENS OF HEAVEN
  • 00:00:45.070 --> 00:00:47.140
  • WHILE WE'RE RESIDENTS OF EARTH?
  • 00:00:47.170 --> 00:00:49.200
  • I'M CHRISTINE CAINE AND I HAVE A PERSONAL MISSION
  • 00:00:49.230 --> 00:00:52.040
  • TO EQUIP AND EMPOWER PEOPLE LIKE YOU
  • 00:00:52.070 --> 00:00:54.140
  • TO CONNECT WITH YOUR GOD GIVEN PURPOSE AND POTENTIAL.
  • 00:00:54.170 --> 00:00:57.080
  • I'M SO GLAD THAT YOU'RE JOINING US TODAY.
  • 00:00:57.110 --> 00:00:59.140
  • LET'S DIVE RIGHT IN.
  • 00:00:59.170 --> 00:01:01.050
  • [UPBEAT MUSIC]
  • 00:01:01.080 --> 00:01:11.080
  • [AUDIENCE CLAPPING]
  • 00:01:11.110 --> 00:01:13.290
  • HELLO, EVERYBODY!
  • 00:01:14.020 --> 00:01:15.060
  • I AM SO FIRED UP AND SO GRATEFUL.
  • 00:01:15.090 --> 00:01:18.050
  • I AM SO GRATEFUL THAT YOU'VE JOINED US TODAY
  • 00:01:18.080 --> 00:01:20.210
  • AND I KNOW THAT GOD'S GOT A WORD FOR YOU
  • 00:01:20.240 --> 00:01:22.130
  • AND HE'S GONNA SPEAK TO YOU POWERFULLY.
  • 00:01:22.160 --> 00:01:25.010
  • YOU ALL KNOW THAT NICK AND I OVERSEE A21
  • 00:01:25.040 --> 00:01:28.050
  • AND SO OBVIOUSLY THAT'S AN ORGANIZATION
  • 00:01:28.080 --> 00:01:30.020
  • TO HELP ABOLISH SLAVERY EVERYWHERE FOREVER.
  • 00:01:30.050 --> 00:01:32.220
  • WE STARTED IN 2008 AND HAVE SEEN GOD DO AMAZING THINGS.
  • 00:01:32.250 --> 00:01:37.260
  • SO MANY PEOPLE RESCUED OUT OF BOTH SEX TRAFFICKING
  • 00:01:37.290 --> 00:01:41.140
  • AND FORCED LABOR TRAFFICKING
  • 00:01:41.170 --> 00:01:43.000
  • AND SO MANY TRAFFICKERS CONVICTED AND SENTENCED
  • 00:01:43.030 --> 00:01:46.230
  • AND PUT IN JAIL AND JUST, KIND OF REALLY, HELPING
  • 00:01:46.260 --> 00:01:49.240
  • TO RESCUE PEOPLE THAT ARE BOUND ALL AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:01:49.270 --> 00:01:53.190
  • WE HAVE 15, WE'RE IN 15 COUNTRIES.
  • 00:01:53.220 --> 00:01:56.120
  • WE HAVE SO MANY OFFICERS ALL AROUND THE WORLD
  • 00:01:56.150 --> 00:01:58.270
  • AND I OFTEN HAVE TO GO VISIT OUR OFFICES
  • 00:01:59.000 --> 00:02:01.280
  • AND VISIT OUR STAFF AND VISIT OUR TEAMS.
  • 00:02:02.010 --> 00:02:03.250
  • IN FACT, IT'S PROBABLY ONE OF THE GREATEST PRIVILEGES
  • 00:02:03.280 --> 00:02:06.070
  • OF MY LIFE TO GET TO SERVE OUR TEAMS
  • 00:02:06.100 --> 00:02:09.060
  • AND HELP MOBILIZE OUR TEAMS THAT ARE IN THE TRENCHES,
  • 00:02:09.090 --> 00:02:12.050
  • REALLY MAKING A DIFFERENCE
  • 00:02:12.080 --> 00:02:13.120
  • WHEN IT COMES TO ABOLISHING SLAVERY.
  • 00:02:13.150 --> 00:02:15.280
  • WELL, YOU KNOW, I CAN'T JUST GO TO A COUNTRY
  • 00:02:16.010 --> 00:02:19.100
  • AND JUST WALK THROUGH THE DOOR OF THE COUNTRY,
  • 00:02:19.130 --> 00:02:21.220
  • JUST WALK THROUGH THE GATE OF THE COUNTRY
  • 00:02:21.250 --> 00:02:23.060
  • LIKE I OWN THE PLACE.
  • 00:02:23.090 --> 00:02:24.220
  • IF I EVER TRIED TO JUST GO THROUGH TSA
  • 00:02:24.250 --> 00:02:28.120
  • OR TO GET THROUGH THE LINE AND HAVE NO PASSPORT,
  • 00:02:28.150 --> 00:02:32.030
  • I HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT I PROBABLY WOULDN'T GET VERY FAR.
  • 00:02:32.060 --> 00:02:34.220
  • I DON'T THINK THEY WOULD EVEN GIVE ME A TICKET
  • 00:02:34.250 --> 00:02:36.280
  • TO GET ON THE PLANE.
  • 00:02:37.010 --> 00:02:38.130
  • AND THEY CERTAINLY WOULDN'T LET ME THROUGH SECURITY,
  • 00:02:38.160 --> 00:02:40.100
  • THEN THEY WOULDN'T LET ME ON THE PLANE
  • 00:02:40.130 --> 00:02:41.190
  • AND THEN EVEN IF I DID MANAGE TO DO ALL OF THAT
  • 00:02:41.220 --> 00:02:44.080
  • WHEN I GOT TO THE OTHER SIDE AT THE OTHER COUNTRY
  • 00:02:44.110 --> 00:02:46.170
  • THEY'RE NOT JUST GONNA SAY
  • 00:02:46.200 --> 00:02:47.190
  • OH, WELCOME, MRS. CAINE, JUST WALK ON THROUGH.
  • 00:02:47.220 --> 00:02:50.010
  • IF I'M GOING TO LEAVE THE COUNTRY, I NEED A PASSPORT.
  • 00:02:50.040 --> 00:02:52.180
  • IF I'M GOING TO ENTER ANOTHER COUNTRY,
  • 00:02:52.210 --> 00:02:54.170
  • I'M GOING TO ALSO NEED A PASSPORT.
  • 00:02:54.200 --> 00:02:57.000
  • NOW, A PASSPORT TELLS YOU WHAT COUNTRY YOU'RE A CITIZEN OF
  • 00:02:57.030 --> 00:03:00.030
  • AND IT GIVES YOU ACCESS TO OTHER COUNTRIES
  • 00:03:00.060 --> 00:03:02.240
  • THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.
  • 00:03:02.270 --> 00:03:04.290
  • I AM VERY BLESSED IN THAT, OF COURSE,
  • 00:03:05.020 --> 00:03:07.120
  • I WAS BORN IN AUSTRALIA SO I HAVE MY AUSTRALIAN PASSPORT
  • 00:03:07.150 --> 00:03:11.140
  • AND I WAS BORN IN THE COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA.
  • 00:03:11.170 --> 00:03:14.130
  • I GOT THIS PASSPORT SIMPLY, I APPLIED.
  • 00:03:14.160 --> 00:03:17.180
  • BUT I GOT IT BECAUSE I AM AUSTRALIAN.
  • 00:03:17.210 --> 00:03:20.120
  • I WAS BORN IN AUSTRALIA,
  • 00:03:20.150 --> 00:03:22.230
  • MY PARENTS WERE IMMIGRANTS INTO AUSTRALIA.
  • 00:03:22.260 --> 00:03:25.290
  • BUT BECAUSE I WAS BORN THERE,
  • 00:03:26.020 --> 00:03:27.060
  • I GET TO HAVE AN AUSTRALIAN PASSPORT.
  • 00:03:27.090 --> 00:03:29.190
  • I HAVE ALL THE RIGHTS AND ALL THE PRIVILEGES
  • 00:03:29.220 --> 00:03:32.220
  • THAT COME WITH BEING AN AUSTRALIAN CITIZEN
  • 00:03:32.250 --> 00:03:36.060
  • AND THIS PASSPORT GIVES ME ACCESS
  • 00:03:36.090 --> 00:03:38.120
  • IN AND OUT OF COUNTRIES ALL AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:03:38.150 --> 00:03:41.020
  • AND THIS IS MY ACCESS PASS.
  • 00:03:41.050 --> 00:03:42.150
  • A FEW MONTHS AGO, AFTER LIVING
  • 00:03:42.180 --> 00:03:45.270
  • IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA FOR MANY, MANY YEARS
  • 00:03:46.000 --> 00:03:50.260
  • I ACTUALLY EVEN GOT AN AMERICAN PASSPORT.
  • 00:03:50.290 --> 00:03:54.080
  • [AUDIENCE CHEERS] WHEN I
  • 00:03:54.110 --> 00:03:56.120
  • BECAME AN AMERICAN CITIZEN.
  • 00:03:56.150 --> 00:03:58.090
  • NOW I FIRST CAME TO AMERICA ON A TOURIST VISA IN 1998.
  • 00:03:58.120 --> 00:04:03.260
  • AND THEN I BECAME A RESIDENT ALIEN IN JULY 2010.
  • 00:04:03.290 --> 00:04:08.000
  • NOW I KNOW YOU ALL THINK I'M WEIRD,
  • 00:04:08.030 --> 00:04:09.090
  • BUT I ACTUALLY DID BECOME AN ALIEN.
  • 00:04:09.120 --> 00:04:11.090
  • I THOUGHT THAT WAS SO FUNNY.
  • 00:04:11.120 --> 00:04:12.150
  • THEN I BECAME A PERMANENT RESIDENT ALIEN IN 2012.
  • 00:04:12.180 --> 00:04:16.110
  • AND THEN ON THE 19TH OF JULY 2018,
  • 00:04:16.140 --> 00:04:19.260
  • I BECAME A PERMANENT AMERICAN CITIZEN
  • 00:04:19.290 --> 00:04:23.020
  • ALMOST TO THE DAY, A DECADE AFTER I HAD COME HERE.
  • 00:04:23.050 --> 00:04:27.110
  • IT WAS PRETTY WILD TO BECOME AN AMERICAN CITIZEN.
  • 00:04:27.140 --> 00:04:30.240
  • NOW, I HAD TO DO A BIG TEST TO BECOME AN AMERICAN CITIZEN.
  • 00:04:30.270 --> 00:04:33.290
  • I DIDN'T HAVE TO DO A BIG TEST
  • 00:04:34.020 --> 00:04:35.060
  • TO GET MY AUSTRALIAN PASSPORT,
  • 00:04:35.090 --> 00:04:36.230
  • I JUST HAD TO BE BORN INTO AUSTRALIA.
  • 00:04:36.260 --> 00:04:39.040
  • IT WAS EASY.
  • 00:04:39.070 --> 00:04:40.070
  • BUT I HAD TO PASS, I HAD TO LEARN 100 QUESTIONS
  • 00:04:40.100 --> 00:04:44.020
  • ABOUT AMERICAN HISTORY.
  • 00:04:44.050 --> 00:04:45.250
  • ABOUT THE AMERICAN CONSTITUTION.
  • 00:04:45.280 --> 00:04:48.020
  • ABOUT THE AMERICAN LEGAL SYSTEM,
  • 00:04:48.050 --> 00:04:49.250
  • THE AMERICAN POLITICAL SYSTEM.
  • 00:04:49.280 --> 00:04:51.120
  • I KNOW MORE ABOUT YOUR COUNTRY
  • 00:04:51.150 --> 00:04:52.290
  • THAN I KNOW ABOUT MY COUNTRY.
  • 00:04:53.020 --> 00:04:54.280
  • AND I HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE GRATEFUL
  • 00:04:55.010 --> 00:04:57.090
  • FOR THE OPPORTUNITY SOMEONE ONCE TOOK ME
  • 00:04:57.120 --> 00:04:59.270
  • TO SEE THE MUSICAL "HAMILTON".
  • 00:05:00.020 --> 00:05:01.270
  • I LEARNED MY ENTIRE AMERICAN HISTORY
  • 00:05:02.000 --> 00:05:04.140
  • FROM THE MUSICAL "HAMILTON".
  • 00:05:04.170 --> 00:05:06.060
  • [AUDIENCE LAUGHS] I'M IN MY EXAM GOING
  • 00:05:06.090 --> 00:05:07.200
  • WHAT WOULD ALEXANDER HAMILTON SAY?
  • 00:05:07.230 --> 00:05:09.220
  • [AUDIENCE LAUGHS] SO I GOT IT ALL
  • 00:05:09.250 --> 00:05:11.020
  • AND I WORKED IT OUT.
  • 00:05:11.050 --> 00:05:12.080
  • AND I ALSO FOUND OUT THAT THAT'S WHERE YOU GUYS
  • 00:05:12.110 --> 00:05:15.080
  • THREW THE THE TEA OVERBOARD
  • 00:05:15.110 --> 00:05:17.030
  • AND YOU DECIDED SEE YOU LATER, ENGLAND,
  • 00:05:17.060 --> 00:05:19.160
  • WOULDN'T WANT TO BE YOU. AND YOU BECAME A REPUBLIC
  • 00:05:19.190 --> 00:05:22.290
  • AND WE IN AUSTRALIA ARE STILL PART OF THE MONARCHY.
  • 00:05:23.020 --> 00:05:26.030
  • WE ARE PART OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA.
  • 00:05:26.060 --> 00:05:29.130
  • I HAD JUST HAD TO LAUGH AND SAY THAT
  • 00:05:29.160 --> 00:05:31.250
  • I PASSED THE TEST WITH FLYING COLORS.
  • 00:05:31.280 --> 00:05:35.060
  • I WAS VERY, VERY PROUD TO PLEDGE LOYALTY TO AMERICA.
  • 00:05:35.090 --> 00:05:39.120
  • I ACTUALLY HAD TO SAY,
  • 00:05:39.150 --> 00:05:41.000
  • I HAD TO DO THE NATURALIZATION OATH OF ALLEGIANCE.
  • 00:05:41.030 --> 00:05:43.250
  • I HAD TO SAY "I HEREBY DECLARE ON OATH
  • 00:05:43.280 --> 00:05:46.270
  • THAT I ABSOLUTELY AND ENTIRELY
  • 00:05:47.000 --> 00:05:48.280
  • RENOUNCE AND ABJURE ALL ALLEGIANCE AND FIDELITY
  • 00:05:49.010 --> 00:05:52.010
  • TO ANY FOREIGN PRINCE, POTENTATE, STATE OR SOVEREIGNTY,
  • 00:05:52.040 --> 00:05:57.170
  • OF WHOM OR WHICH I HAVE
  • 00:05:57.200 --> 00:06:00.130
  • HERETO FOR BEEN A SUBJECT OR CITIZEN."
  • 00:06:00.160 --> 00:06:03.260
  • WHO SPEAKS LIKE THIS? BUT ANYWAY.
  • 00:06:03.290 --> 00:06:06.050
  • "THAT I WILL SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION AND LAWS
  • 00:06:06.080 --> 00:06:09.100
  • OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
  • 00:06:09.130 --> 00:06:10.260
  • AGAINST ALL ENEMIES, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC;
  • 00:06:10.290 --> 00:06:12.220
  • THAT I WILL BEAR TRUE FAITH AND ALLEGIANCE TO THE SAME;
  • 00:06:12.250 --> 00:06:15.040
  • THAT I WILL BEAR ARMS ON BEHALF OF THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:06:15.070 --> 00:06:17.140
  • WHEN REQUIRED BY THE LAW;
  • 00:06:17.170 --> 00:06:18.140
  • AND THAT I WILL PERFORM NONCOMBATANT,"
  • 00:06:18.170 --> 00:06:20.150
  • THAT'S WHY I'VE GOT THESE BOOTS ON,
  • 00:06:20.180 --> 00:06:21.200
  • "SERVICE IN THE ARMED FORCES OF THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:06:21.230 --> 00:06:24.210
  • WHEN REQUIRED BY THE LAW;
  • 00:06:24.240 --> 00:06:25.230
  • THAT I WILL PERFORM WORK OF NATIONAL IMPORTANCE
  • 00:06:25.260 --> 00:06:27.140
  • UNDER CIVILIAN DIRECTION WHEN REQUIRED BY THE LAW;
  • 00:06:27.170 --> 00:06:30.000
  • AND THAT I TAKE THIS OBLIGATION FREELY,
  • 00:06:30.030 --> 00:06:32.020
  • WITHOUT ANY MENTAL RESERVATION OR PURPOSE OF EVASION;
  • 00:06:32.050 --> 00:06:34.290
  • SO HELP ME GOD."
  • 00:06:35.020 --> 00:06:37.010
  • I DID THE AMERICAN OATH OF ALLEGIANCE.
  • 00:06:37.040 --> 00:06:40.090
  • [AUDIENCE CLAPPING] I PLEDGED MY OATH OF ALLEGIANCE.
  • 00:06:40.120 --> 00:06:43.210
  • NOW, I STILL DON'T HAVE THE ACCENT.
  • 00:06:43.240 --> 00:06:45.260
  • YA'LL.
  • 00:06:45.290 --> 00:06:47.030
  • [AUDIENCE LAUGHS]
  • 00:06:47.060 --> 00:06:48.230
  • I DON'T HAVE THE ACCENT,
  • 00:06:48.260 --> 00:06:50.070
  • I'M BRINGING A BIT OF A AUSTRALIAN SASSY ACCENT TO IT
  • 00:06:50.100 --> 00:06:53.080
  • BUT I HAD TO GO THROUGH A PROCESS
  • 00:06:53.110 --> 00:06:55.070
  • TO BECOME AN AMERICAN CITIZENSHIP, A CITIZEN.
  • 00:06:55.100 --> 00:06:58.220
  • I HAD TO GO THROUGH A CITIZENSHIP PROCESS
  • 00:06:58.250 --> 00:07:01.260
  • THAT TOOK A LOT OF YEARS.
  • 00:07:01.290 --> 00:07:03.080
  • THAT TOOK A HUGE EXAM THAT I HAD TO STUDY INTENTLY FOR
  • 00:07:03.110 --> 00:07:07.200
  • UNTIL I FINALLY, I HAD TO PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE.
  • 00:07:07.230 --> 00:07:11.100
  • AND AFTER I DID ALL OF THAT,
  • 00:07:11.130 --> 00:07:13.140
  • I FINALLY GOT AN AMERICAN PASSPORT
  • 00:07:13.170 --> 00:07:16.050
  • AND SO NOW I CAN ENTER AND LEAVE THE COUNTRY
  • 00:07:16.080 --> 00:07:19.200
  • WITH AN AMERICAN PASSPORT.
  • 00:07:19.230 --> 00:07:21.180
  • AND YOU SAY, CHRISTINE, WHY HAVE YOU NOW GIVEN US
  • 00:07:21.210 --> 00:07:24.090
  • A CITIZENSHIP LESSON BEFORE WE EVEN JUMP INTO THE TEXT?
  • 00:07:24.120 --> 00:07:28.140
  • BECAUSE WE ARE ABOUT TO JUMP INTO THE TEXT, IN THE BIBLE,
  • 00:07:28.170 --> 00:07:32.220
  • WE'RE GONNA LOOK AT THE CITIZENSHIP CLAUSE
  • 00:07:32.250 --> 00:07:35.170
  • OF THE BOOK OF PHILIPPIANS.
  • 00:07:35.200 --> 00:07:37.060
  • AND I WANTED TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY
  • 00:07:37.090 --> 00:07:39.240
  • ON WHAT IT IS BECAUSE A LOT OF US WE DON'T THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:07:39.270 --> 00:07:42.050
  • YOU'RE JUST BORN IN A COUNTRY AND IF YOU TRAVEL
  • 00:07:42.080 --> 00:07:45.050
  • THEN YOU GET A PASSPORT.
  • 00:07:45.080 --> 00:07:46.170
  • I CANNOT BELIEVE THE AMOUNT OF AMERICANS
  • 00:07:46.200 --> 00:07:48.090
  • THAT I'VE MEET THAT DON'T HAVE A PASSPORT.
  • 00:07:48.120 --> 00:07:49.210
  • I'M LIKE, YOU PEOPLE NEED TO GET OUT MORE.
  • 00:07:49.240 --> 00:07:51.030
  • AND SO THERE IS A WHOLE WORLD OUTSIDE OF THIS COUNTRY
  • 00:07:51.060 --> 00:07:55.120
  • BUT IF YOU WANT TO TRAVEL,
  • 00:07:55.150 --> 00:07:56.190
  • THEN YOU ARE GOING TO NEED A PASSPORT.
  • 00:07:56.220 --> 00:07:58.250
  • WE'RE GOING TO GO TO THE BOOK OF PHILIPPIANS, CHAPTER THREE.
  • 00:07:58.280 --> 00:08:02.050
  • I LOVE THIS AND I HOPE THAT IT RESOUNDS WITH YOU.
  • 00:08:02.080 --> 00:08:06.150
  • THAT THIS IS THE CITIZENSHIP CLAUSE
  • 00:08:06.180 --> 00:08:08.050
  • OF THE BOOK OF PHILIPPIANS.
  • 00:08:08.080 --> 00:08:10.000
  • WE'RE GONNA START IN VERSE 12
  • 00:08:10.030 --> 00:08:12.110
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO READ TO CHAPTER FOUR, VERSE ONE.
  • 00:08:12.140 --> 00:08:14.200
  • PAUL SAYS "NOT THAT I HAVE ALREADY OBTAINED THIS
  • 00:08:14.230 --> 00:08:16.180
  • OR AM ALREADY PERFECT BUT I PRESS ON TO MAKE IT MY OWN,
  • 00:08:16.210 --> 00:08:20.200
  • BECAUSE CHRIST JESUS HAS MADE ME HIS OWN.
  • 00:08:20.230 --> 00:08:23.010
  • BROTHERS, I DO NOT CONSIDER THAT I HAE MADE IT MY OWN.
  • 00:08:23.040 --> 00:08:25.220
  • BUT ONE THING I DO: FORGETTING WHAT LIES BEHIND
  • 00:08:25.250 --> 00:08:28.220
  • AND STRAINING FORWARD TO WHAT LIES AHEAD,
  • 00:08:28.250 --> 00:08:31.090
  • I PRESS ON TOWARD THE GOAL FOR THE PRIZE
  • 00:08:31.120 --> 00:08:33.080
  • OF THE UPWARD CALL OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS.
  • 00:08:33.110 --> 00:08:36.110
  • LET THOSE OF US WHO ARE MATURE THINK THIS WAY,
  • 00:08:36.140 --> 00:08:40.140
  • AND IF IN ANYTHING YOU THINK OTHERWISE,
  • 00:08:40.170 --> 00:08:42.100
  • GOD WILL REVEAL THAT TO YOU ALSO.
  • 00:08:42.130 --> 00:08:44.070
  • ONLY LET US HOLD TRUE TO WHAT WE HAVE ALREADY ATTAINED.
  • 00:08:44.100 --> 00:08:48.190
  • BROTHERS, JOIN ME, JOIN IN IMITATING ME,
  • 00:08:48.220 --> 00:08:51.210
  • AND KEEP YOUR EYES ON THOSE
  • 00:08:51.240 --> 00:08:53.120
  • WHO WALK ACCORDING TO THE EXAMPLE YOU HAVE IN US.
  • 00:08:53.150 --> 00:08:57.050
  • FOR MANY, OF WHOM I HAVE OFTEN TOLD YOU
  • 00:08:57.080 --> 00:09:00.230
  • AND NOW TELL YOU EVEN WITH TEARS,
  • 00:09:00.260 --> 00:09:03.050
  • WALK AS ENEMIES OF THE CROSS OF CHRIST.
  • 00:09:03.080 --> 00:09:06.280
  • THEIR END IS DESTRUCTION, THEIR GOD IS THEIR BELLY,
  • 00:09:07.010 --> 00:09:09.160
  • AND THEY GLORY IN THEIR SHAME,
  • 00:09:09.190 --> 00:09:11.080
  • WITH MINDS SET ON EARTHLY THINGS.
  • 00:09:11.110 --> 00:09:13.130
  • BUT OUR CITIZENSHIP IS IN HEAVEN
  • 00:09:13.160 --> 00:09:15.280
  • AND FROM IT WE AWAIT A SAVIOR, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:09:16.010 --> 00:09:20.250
  • WHO WILL TRANSFORM OUR LOWLY BODY
  • 00:09:20.280 --> 00:09:23.090
  • TO BE LIKE HIS GLORIOUS BODY
  • 00:09:23.120 --> 00:09:25.080
  • BY THE POWER THAT ENABLES HIM EVEN TO SUBJECT
  • 00:09:25.110 --> 00:09:29.180
  • ALL THINGS TO HIMSELF.
  • 00:09:29.210 --> 00:09:31.020
  • THEREFORE, MY BROTHERS, WHOM I LOVE AND I LONG FOR,
  • 00:09:31.050 --> 00:09:34.200
  • MY JOY AND CROWN, STAND FIRM THUS IN THE LORD, MY BELOVED."
  • 00:09:34.230 --> 00:09:40.260
  • I LOVE THIS.
  • 00:09:40.290 --> 00:09:41.290
  • THE CITIZENSHIP CLAUSE OF THE BOOK OF PHILIPPIANS.
  • 00:09:42.020 --> 00:09:44.260
  • SO BASICALLY, PAUL CALLING THE PHILIPPIANS CITIZENS
  • 00:09:44.290 --> 00:09:49.060
  • WOULD ACTUALLY SO, SO RESOUND WITHIN THIS WHOLE CONCEPT
  • 00:09:49.090 --> 00:09:54.060
  • OF YOU'RE CITIZENS OF HEAVEN, NOT OF EARTH.
  • 00:09:54.090 --> 00:09:57.130
  • THEY WOULD HAVE TOTALLY UNDERSTOOD WHAT HE
  • 00:09:57.160 --> 00:09:58.250
  • WAS TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:09:58.280 --> 00:09:59.270
  • BECAUSE THE PHILIPPIANS WERE CITIZENS OF ROME.
  • 00:10:00.000 --> 00:10:03.060
  • NOW, THEY'RE ABOUT 750 MILES AWAY FROM ROME.
  • 00:10:03.090 --> 00:10:06.200
  • NOW OUR HEAD OFFICE FOR A21 IS IN THESSALONIKI, GREECE
  • 00:10:06.230 --> 00:10:10.180
  • AND ABOUT 45 MINUTES CAR DRIVE FROM THESSALONIKI, GREECE
  • 00:10:10.210 --> 00:10:14.210
  • IS THE CITY OF PHILIPPI.
  • 00:10:14.240 --> 00:10:16.140
  • AND IT REALLY, IT STILL SPINS ME OUT
  • 00:10:16.170 --> 00:10:18.190
  • WHEN I GET IN THE CAR AND GO THIS IS THE BIBLE.
  • 00:10:18.220 --> 00:10:20.140
  • I'M DRIVING IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:10:20.170 --> 00:10:21.280
  • AND SO YOU ACTUALLY GET OUT, YOU GO THIS IS LIKE A REAL CITY
  • 00:10:22.010 --> 00:10:25.280
  • AND PHILIPPI, OF COURSE, IS WHERE LYDIA WAS BAPTIZED.
  • 00:10:26.010 --> 00:10:29.150
  • LYDIA WAS THE FIRST EUROPEAN CONVERT.
  • 00:10:29.180 --> 00:10:32.020
  • I LOVE THAT 'CAUSE SHE WAS A CHICK.
  • 00:10:32.050 --> 00:10:33.190
  • AND SO THE FIRST PERSON SAVED IN EUROPE WAS A CHICK.
  • 00:10:33.220 --> 00:10:37.230
  • AND SO SHE WAS CONVERTED AND WATER BAPTIZED,
  • 00:10:37.260 --> 00:10:40.290
  • RIGHT UP THERE IN PHILIPPI.
  • 00:10:41.020 --> 00:10:43.280
  • AND SO THE PHILIPPIANS WOULD HAVE UNDERSTOOD
  • 00:10:44.010 --> 00:10:46.070
  • WHAT PAUL WAS TALKING ABOUT WHEN HE SAID
  • 00:10:46.100 --> 00:10:48.040
  • YOU'RE CITIZENS OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:10:48.070 --> 00:10:49.270
  • BECAUSE THEY KNEW WHAT IT WAS LIKE
  • 00:10:50.000 --> 00:10:51.260
  • TO LIVE OUTSIDE OF A CITY THAT YOU WERE A CITIZEN OF.
  • 00:10:51.290 --> 00:10:56.190
  • THEY WERE CITIZENS OF THE EMPIRE OF ROME.
  • 00:10:56.220 --> 00:10:59.160
  • THAT MEANS THAT EVEN THOUGH
  • 00:10:59.190 --> 00:11:01.110
  • THEY WERE IN THE MACEDONIAN REGION,
  • 00:11:01.140 --> 00:11:04.180
  • THEY DIDN'T SPEAK THE SAME LANGUAGE AS THE MACEDONIANS,
  • 00:11:04.210 --> 00:11:06.210
  • THEY DIDN'T DRESS THE SAME LANGUAGE
  • 00:11:06.240 --> 00:11:08.270
  • AND THEY DID, THEY WEREN'T EDUCATED IN THE SAME WAY.
  • 00:11:09.000 --> 00:11:11.130
  • THEY WERE EDUCATED IN THE WAYS OF ROME.
  • 00:11:11.160 --> 00:11:13.260
  • THEY WORE THE CLOTHING THAT THE ROMANS WOULD WEAR.
  • 00:11:13.290 --> 00:11:17.060
  • AND SO IN EVERY WAY, THEY ATE THE FOOD OF THE ROMANS,
  • 00:11:17.090 --> 00:11:22.010
  • AND SO A PERSON BORN IN PHILIPPI
  • 00:11:22.040 --> 00:11:24.140
  • WAS ACTUALLY A CITIZEN OF ROME.
  • 00:11:24.170 --> 00:11:27.170
  • DIFFERENT LANGUAGE, DIFFERENT DRESS,
  • 00:11:27.200 --> 00:11:29.000
  • AND THEY WERE LOYAL TO THE ROMAN GOVERNMENT.
  • 00:11:29.030 --> 00:11:32.060
  • AND SO THEY KNEW IN EVERY WAY
  • 00:11:32.090 --> 00:11:34.090
  • WHAT IT WAS TO BE SHAPED BY A KINGDOM
  • 00:11:34.120 --> 00:11:38.040
  • IN WHICH YOU DIDN'T ACTUALLY LIVE.
  • 00:11:38.070 --> 00:11:40.060
  • YOU DIDN'T ACTUALLY LIVE THERE,
  • 00:11:40.090 --> 00:11:41.200
  • YOU LIVED SOMEWHERE ELSE BUT EVERYTHING YOU DID,
  • 00:11:41.230 --> 00:11:44.030
  • THE WAY YOU THOUGHT, THE WAY YOU TALKED,
  • 00:11:44.060 --> 00:11:45.150
  • THE WAY YOU ATE, THE WAY YOU DRESSED,
  • 00:11:45.180 --> 00:11:47.020
  • EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU WAS SHAPED
  • 00:11:47.050 --> 00:11:49.110
  • BY THE PLACE THAT YOU BELONGED TO
  • 00:11:49.140 --> 00:11:51.240
  • EVEN THOUGH YOU WEREN'T LIVING IN THAT PLACE.
  • 00:11:51.270 --> 00:11:54.120
  • YOU WERE LIVING IN ANOTHER PLACE.
  • 00:11:54.150 --> 00:11:55.220
  • HE WOULD HAVE UNDERSTOOD THAT.
  • 00:11:55.250 --> 00:11:57.030
  • NOW THAT THE METAPHOR THAT PAUL IS PAINTING
  • 00:11:57.060 --> 00:11:58.250
  • FOR YOU AND FOR ME TODAY IS THAT YOU AND I
  • 00:11:58.280 --> 00:12:02.210
  • ARE CITIZENS OF HEAVEN BUT WE TEMPORARILY LIVE
  • 00:12:02.240 --> 00:12:07.160
  • ON THIS COLONY CALLED EARTH.
  • 00:12:07.190 --> 00:12:09.120
  • AND SO WE ARE NOT HERE FOREVER.
  • 00:12:09.150 --> 00:12:11.090
  • WE ARE SOJOURNERS, WE ARE PILGRIMS ON A JOURNEY.
  • 00:12:11.120 --> 00:12:15.180
  • WE ARE JUST PASSING THROUGH.
  • 00:12:15.210 --> 00:12:17.280
  • WE ARE GOVERNED BY A KING, KING JESUS.
  • 00:12:18.010 --> 00:12:20.230
  • HE RULES A KINGDOM AND WE ARE PART OF THAT KINGDOM.
  • 00:12:20.260 --> 00:12:25.050
  • IF WE HAVE BEEN BORN AGAIN, WE ARE BORN AGAIN
  • 00:12:25.080 --> 00:12:28.250
  • INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:12:28.280 --> 00:12:31.060
  • JESUS IN THE GOSPELS TALKED ABOUT THE KINGDOM
  • 00:12:31.090 --> 00:12:34.170
  • AND SO WE HAVE A KING, WE ARE PART OF A KINGDOM,
  • 00:12:34.200 --> 00:12:38.040
  • WE OPERATE ACCORDING TO A WHOLE DIFFERENT PARADIGM
  • 00:12:38.070 --> 00:12:42.030
  • TO THE WAY THAT THEY WORLD DOES
  • 00:12:42.060 --> 00:12:43.270
  • BECAUSE WE LIVE ON THIS COLONY CALLED EARTH
  • 00:12:44.000 --> 00:12:46.280
  • BUT WE ARE PART OF ANOTHER KINGDOM.
  • 00:12:47.010 --> 00:12:49.120
  • IT'S EASY TO FORGET THAT WHEN YOU GET ABOUT YOUR NORMAL DAY.
  • 00:12:49.150 --> 00:12:52.280
  • IT'S NOT THAT YOU GET UP EVERY MORNING,
  • 00:12:53.010 --> 00:12:54.190
  • PUT ON THE COFFEE POT,
  • 00:12:54.220 --> 00:12:55.200
  • AND GO OH, I'M PART OF A DIFFERENT KINGDOM.
  • 00:12:55.230 --> 00:12:58.200
  • BUT IT WOULD CHANGE YOUR WHOLE DAY IF YOU DID THAT.
  • 00:12:58.230 --> 00:13:01.090
  • IF YOU ACTUALLY REMEMBERED THAT I AM NOT OF THIS WORLD.
  • 00:13:01.120 --> 00:13:04.120
  • I AM JUST PASSING THROUGH.
  • 00:13:04.150 --> 00:13:06.020
  • I COME FROM A DIFFERENT KINGDOM
  • 00:13:06.050 --> 00:13:07.080
  • THEREFOR I SHOULD THINK DIFFERENT TO THE WAY OF THIS
  • 00:13:07.110 --> 00:13:10.210
  • WORLD. I SHOULD ACT DIFFERENT TO THE WAY OF THIS WORLD.
  • 00:13:10.240 --> 00:13:14.270
  • EVERYTHING ABOUT ME, I SHOULD TALK DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:13:15.000 --> 00:13:16.250
  • I SHOULD HOLD MYSELF DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:13:16.280 --> 00:13:17.270
  • I SHOULD WALK THROUGH THIS WORLD DIFFERENTLY
  • 00:13:18.000 --> 00:13:19.290
  • BECAUSE I SERVE A DIFFERENT KING,
  • 00:13:20.020 --> 00:13:21.180
  • I'M PART OF A DIFFERENT KINGDOM,
  • 00:13:21.210 --> 00:13:23.060
  • I AM NOT GOVERNED BY WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS WORLD.
  • 00:13:23.090 --> 00:13:26.130
  • [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] I AM SERVING KING JESUS.
  • 00:13:26.160 --> 00:13:29.180
  • AND THERE OUGHTTA BE EVIDENCE IN OUR LIVES AS CHRISTIANS
  • 00:13:29.210 --> 00:13:34.280
  • THAT WE LIVE HERE BUT WE'RE PART OF SOMEWHERE ELSE.

  • 00:13:54.290 --> 00:13:58.250
  • THAT WE'RE ABLE TO WALK OUT WHO GOD HAS CALLED US TO BE.
  • 00:13:58.280 --> 00:14:02.160

  • - NOW IN AUSTRALIA AND ON THIS EARTH,
  • 00:16:20.020 --> 00:16:22.270
  • I HAVE DUAL CITIZENSHIP,
  • 00:16:23.000 --> 00:16:25.060
  • BUT IN THE SPIRITUAL REALM THERE IS NO DUAL CITIZENSHIP.
  • 00:16:25.090 --> 00:16:29.140
  • YOU CANNOT BE A CITIZEN OF HEAVEN AND A CITIZEN OF EARTH.
  • 00:16:29.170 --> 00:16:33.120
  • SOME PEOPLE CONFUSE THE NATURAL WORLD
  • 00:16:33.150 --> 00:16:36.070
  • WITH THE SPIRITUAL WORLD.
  • 00:16:36.100 --> 00:16:37.130
  • WE THINK, WELL I CAN HAVE DUAL CITIZENSHIP.
  • 00:16:37.160 --> 00:16:39.140
  • I CAN HAVE VEGEMITE WHEN I'M IN AUSTRALIA,
  • 00:16:39.170 --> 00:16:42.210
  • MOST AMERICANS DON'T LIKE VEGEMITE,
  • 00:16:42.240 --> 00:16:43.280
  • I CAN HAVE VEGEMITE WHEN I'M IN AUSTRALIA
  • 00:16:44.010 --> 00:16:46.270
  • AND I CAN EAT BARBECUE WHEN I'M TEXAS
  • 00:16:47.000 --> 00:16:49.170
  • AND YOU KNOW, IT'S ALL THE SAME.
  • 00:16:49.200 --> 00:16:50.230
  • AND I'M SITTING HERE GOING, OKAY.
  • 00:16:50.260 --> 00:16:53.090
  • ON THIS EARTH I CAN HAVE THE LUXURY OF DUAL CITIZENSHIP
  • 00:16:53.120 --> 00:16:57.260
  • BUT IN THE SPIRIT THERE IS NO DUAL CITIZENSHIP.
  • 00:16:57.290 --> 00:17:00.170
  • YOU CANNOT BE A CITIZEN OF THIS WORLD
  • 00:17:00.200 --> 00:17:03.080
  • AND A CITIZEN OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:17:03.110 --> 00:17:07.010
  • THE BIBLE SAYS, IN JOHN 3:3, WHEN NICODEMAS,
  • 00:17:07.040 --> 00:17:10.080
  • HE ACTUALLY CAME WITH THIS VERY QUESTION TO JESUS.
  • 00:17:10.110 --> 00:17:12.290
  • AND HE SAID "WHAT MUST I DO TO HAVE AN ETERNAL LIFE,
  • 00:17:13.020 --> 00:17:17.210
  • TO INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE?"
  • 00:17:17.240 --> 00:17:18.270
  • AND JESUS CHRIST SAID TO HIM "YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN."
  • 00:17:19.000 --> 00:17:23.190
  • NOW SOME OF US, WE HEAR THAT PHRASE
  • 00:17:23.220 --> 00:17:25.060
  • AND YOU'VE JUST TUNED IN AND YOU'RE LIKE
  • 00:17:25.090 --> 00:17:26.270
  • OH NO, THERE SHE IS, SHE'S ONE OF THEM BORN AGAIN PREACHERS.
  • 00:17:27.000 --> 00:17:29.120
  • THAT'S IT, OKAY, THIS JUST CONFIRMS EVERYTHING
  • 00:17:29.150 --> 00:17:31.200
  • THAT I THOUGHT BECAUSE WE GET ALL THESE THOUGHTS
  • 00:17:31.230 --> 00:17:34.150
  • ABOUT WHAT IS IT TO BE BORN AGAIN.
  • 00:17:34.180 --> 00:17:36.180
  • THAT'S JUST LIKE REALLY, REALLY WEIRD.
  • 00:17:36.210 --> 00:17:38.100
  • I KNOW.
  • 00:17:38.130 --> 00:17:39.240
  • I KNOW IT BUT I ALWAYS SAY TO PEOPLE
  • 00:17:39.270 --> 00:17:41.080
  • YOU KNOW, AT 33 YEARS OLD,
  • 00:17:41.110 --> 00:17:42.290
  • I FOUND OUT, I GOT A PHONE CALL FROM MY BROTHER GEORGE
  • 00:17:43.020 --> 00:17:46.160
  • BECAUSE I'M GREEK AND WHEN YOU'RE GREEK ALL YOUR BROTHERS
  • 00:17:46.190 --> 00:17:48.220
  • ARE GEORGE OR NICO OR SPIRO OR CON
  • 00:17:48.250 --> 00:17:51.060
  • AND THEY'RE ALL, AND MY BROTHER CALLED ME AND HE SAID
  • 00:17:51.090 --> 00:17:53.050
  • "CHRISTINE, I JUST GOT A LETTER FROM THE GOVERNMENT
  • 00:17:53.080 --> 00:17:55.200
  • AND IT'S SAYS I'VE BEEN ADOPTED."
  • 00:17:55.230 --> 00:17:57.240
  • NOW, YOU KNOW, THAT'S A REALLY WEIRD THING TO HEAR
  • 00:17:57.270 --> 00:18:00.210
  • WHEN YOUR BROTHER IS 35 YEARS OLD
  • 00:18:00.240 --> 00:18:02.240
  • AND HE JUST TELLS YOU HE'S BEEN ADOPTED.
  • 00:18:02.270 --> 00:18:04.110
  • NOW I THOUGHT THAT THE GOVERNMENT SENT HIM THE WRONG
  • 00:18:04.140 --> 00:18:07.080
  • LETTER, LIKE, OBVIOUSLY I THOUGHT, GEE,
  • 00:18:07.110 --> 00:18:09.000
  • I KNEW THAT THE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT WAS REALLY INEPT
  • 00:18:09.030 --> 00:18:11.170
  • BUT I MEAN, SENDING THE WRONG LETTERS TO PEOPLE
  • 00:18:11.200 --> 00:18:14.220
  • THIS CAN CAUSE PEOPLE A LOT OF PAIN.
  • 00:18:14.250 --> 00:18:16.120
  • AND I SAID, GEORGE, OF COURSE YOU HAVEN'T BEEN ADOPTED.
  • 00:18:16.150 --> 00:18:20.060
  • IT'S SO FUNNY, YOU KNOW, GROWING UP,
  • 00:18:20.090 --> 00:18:21.290
  • YOU ALWAYS TELL YOUR SIBLINGS THEY'VE BEEN ADOPTED.
  • 00:18:22.020 --> 00:18:23.250
  • YOU ALWAYS SAY YOU ARE NOT RELATED TO ME
  • 00:18:23.280 --> 00:18:26.000
  • BUT WHEN THEY TELL YOU YOU'RE ADOPTED
  • 00:18:26.030 --> 00:18:28.010
  • YOU SUDDENLY GET REALLY DEFENSIVE.
  • 00:18:28.040 --> 00:18:29.050
  • YOU GO NO, NO, NO, YOU HAVEN'T.
  • 00:18:29.080 --> 00:18:30.070
  • I SAID, "CALL THE GOVERNMENT,
  • 00:18:30.100 --> 00:18:31.150
  • TELL THEM THEY'VE MADE A MISTAKE.
  • 00:18:31.180 --> 00:18:33.050
  • AND THEN CALL ME BACK."
  • 00:18:33.080 --> 00:18:34.110
  • SO HE CALLED ME BACK ABOUT 10 MINUTES LATER,
  • 00:18:34.140 --> 00:18:36.000
  • THIS TIME HE WAS CRYING SO BAD.
  • 00:18:36.030 --> 00:18:38.100
  • HE SAID, "CHRIS IT'S TRUE.
  • 00:18:38.130 --> 00:18:39.150
  • THEY TOLD ME THE NAME OF MY BIOLOGICAL MOTHER,
  • 00:18:39.180 --> 00:18:41.130
  • MY BIOLOGICAL FATHER, THEY TOLD ME
  • 00:18:41.160 --> 00:18:43.080
  • WHEN I WAS BORN, WHEN I WAS IMMUNIZED.
  • 00:18:43.110 --> 00:18:45.140
  • THEY HAVE A WHOLE FILE ON MY LIFE."
  • 00:18:45.170 --> 00:18:48.120
  • AND HE SAID "I'M GONNA GO AND SEE MUM,
  • 00:18:48.150 --> 00:18:50.240
  • I'M GONNA GO AND TALK TO HER."
  • 00:18:50.270 --> 00:18:52.100
  • AND SO HERE'S THIS BIG FAMILY SECRET OF 35 YEARS.
  • 00:18:52.130 --> 00:18:56.200
  • AND I JUMP IN THE CAR BECAUSE GREEKS,
  • 00:18:56.230 --> 00:18:59.010
  • WE'RE A BIT CRAY-CRAY, WE ACT FIRST AND THINK LATER.
  • 00:18:59.040 --> 00:19:01.220
  • AND I'M THINKING THIS IS GOING TO GO BAD.
  • 00:19:01.250 --> 00:19:04.180
  • SO I JUMP IN THE CAR, I GO TO MY MOTHER'S HOUSE.
  • 00:19:04.210 --> 00:19:06.220
  • I WALK INTO MY MOTHER'S LOUNGE ROOM
  • 00:19:06.250 --> 00:19:08.220
  • RIGHT AT THE MINUTE THAT MY BROTHER
  • 00:19:08.250 --> 00:19:10.220
  • IS GIVING MY MOTHER THIS PIECE OF PAPER FROM THE GOVERNMENT.
  • 00:19:10.250 --> 00:19:13.260
  • MY MOTHER TOOK IT AND SHE JUST STARTED WEEPING.
  • 00:19:13.290 --> 00:19:17.040
  • AND SHE SAID, "GEORGE, I'M SO SORRY.
  • 00:19:17.070 --> 00:19:19.110
  • ALL OF THE ADOPTION LAWS IN AUSTRALIA,
  • 00:19:19.140 --> 00:19:21.060
  • THEY WERE ALL CLOSED ADOPTIONS, 35 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:19:21.090 --> 00:19:24.220
  • WE NEVER THOUGHT YOU WOULD FIND OUT.
  • 00:19:24.250 --> 00:19:27.010
  • AND ONE OF THE LAST THINGS
  • 00:19:27.040 --> 00:19:28.010
  • I PROMISED YOUR FATHER BEFORE HE DIED
  • 00:19:28.040 --> 00:19:30.090
  • WAS I PROMISED HIM I WOULD NEVER TELL YOU
  • 00:19:30.120 --> 00:19:31.280
  • SO I TORE UP ALL OF THE PAPERWORK, I THREW IT AWAY."
  • 00:19:32.010 --> 00:19:35.070
  • AND SO I MEAN, YOU CAN IMAGINE WHAT THAT WAS LIKE.
  • 00:19:35.100 --> 00:19:38.120
  • I MEAN IT WAS, IT WAS LIKE MY MOTHER WAS CRYING,
  • 00:19:38.150 --> 00:19:41.140
  • MY BROTHER WAS CRYING.
  • 00:19:41.170 --> 00:19:42.290
  • THE DOG WAS CRYING.
  • 00:19:43.020 --> 00:19:43.260
  • I MEAN EVERYBODY, EVERYONE WAS CRYING.
  • 00:19:43.290 --> 00:19:47.030
  • I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:19:47.060 --> 00:19:48.190
  • I'M A GOOD GREEK DAUGHTER SO FOOD IS THE ANSWER
  • 00:19:48.220 --> 00:19:50.270
  • TO LIFE, THE UNIVERSE, AND EVERYTHING.
  • 00:19:51.000 --> 00:19:52.160
  • I'M GOING TO THE KITCHEN, MAKE SOME BAKLAVA, DO SOMETHING.
  • 00:19:52.190 --> 00:19:55.210
  • I GO INTO THE KITCHEN,
  • 00:19:55.240 --> 00:19:57.000
  • MY MOTHER FOLLOWS ME IN A FEW MINUTES LATER, AND SHE SAYS
  • 00:19:57.030 --> 00:20:01.000
  • "CHRISTINE, SINCE WE'RE TELLING THE TRUTH TODAY,
  • 00:20:01.030 --> 00:20:03.020
  • DO YOU WANT TO KNOW THE WHOLE TRUTH?"
  • 00:20:03.050 --> 00:20:05.200
  • AND THEN I JUST TURNED ROUND
  • 00:20:05.230 --> 00:20:06.250
  • AND I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHY I SAID THIS,
  • 00:20:06.280 --> 00:20:09.030
  • I WENT "I'VE BEEN ADOPTED TOO."
  • 00:20:09.060 --> 00:20:10.200
  • I WAS 33 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:20:10.230 --> 00:20:12.220
  • AND, TEARS STREAMING DOWN HER FACE, MY MOTHER SAYS YES.
  • 00:20:12.250 --> 00:20:16.230
  • AND YOU KNOW, THAT DAY, EVERY FACT THAT I THOUGHT
  • 00:20:16.260 --> 00:20:20.050
  • TO BE TRUE ABOUT MY LIFE CHANGED.
  • 00:20:20.080 --> 00:20:21.140
  • EVERYTHING CHANGED.
  • 00:20:21.170 --> 00:20:22.220
  • WHERE I WAS BORN, WHAT MY NAME WAS, WHAT MY HERITAGE WAS.
  • 00:20:22.250 --> 00:20:25.000
  • EVERYTHING CHANGED.
  • 00:20:25.030 --> 00:20:26.100
  • AND TO THIS DAY I STILL DON'T KNOW THE FACTS
  • 00:20:26.130 --> 00:20:27.240
  • SURROUNDING MY CONCEPTION.
  • 00:20:27.270 --> 00:20:29.040
  • I DON'T KNOW IF I WAS A RESULT OF A ONE NIGHT STAND,
  • 00:20:29.070 --> 00:20:30.260
  • I DON'T KNOW IF I WAS THE RESULT
  • 00:20:30.290 --> 00:20:31.270
  • OF AN ONGOING, ADULTEROUS AFFAIR,
  • 00:20:32.000 --> 00:20:33.160
  • I DON'T EVEN KNOW IF I WAS THE RESULT OF A RAPE.
  • 00:20:33.190 --> 00:20:35.170
  • BUT ALTHOUGH I DON'T KNOW THE FACTS,
  • 00:20:35.200 --> 00:20:37.050
  • THERE IS A FORCE ON THE PLANET MUCH HIGHER THAN THE FACTS
  • 00:20:37.080 --> 00:20:39.000
  • AND IT'S CALLED THE TRUTH OF THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:20:39.030 --> 00:20:40.240
  • [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] AND MY BIBLE DOES NOT SAY
  • 00:20:40.270 --> 00:20:42.020
  • THAT I'M THE WORKMANSHIP OF A RAPE OR ADULTEROUS AFFAIR,
  • 00:20:42.050 --> 00:20:44.200
  • MY BIBLE SAYS THAT WE ARE HIS WORKMANSHIP.
  • 00:20:44.230 --> 00:20:47.200
  • AND THAT WE'VE BEEN RECREATED
  • 00:20:47.230 --> 00:20:49.010
  • IN CHRIST JESUS FOR GOOD WORKS.
  • 00:20:49.040 --> 00:20:51.040
  • THAT GOD PREPARED BEFOREHAND THAT WE SHOULD WALK IN THEM.
  • 00:20:51.070 --> 00:20:54.100
  • AND NO DEMON IN HELL AND NO PERSON ON EARTH
  • 00:20:54.130 --> 00:20:56.200
  • CAN THWART THE PLAN AND THE PURPOSE OF GOD FOR OUR LIFE.
  • 00:20:56.230 --> 00:20:59.160
  • I DON'T QUITE KNOW HOW I GOT HERE.
  • 00:20:59.190 --> 00:21:03.050
  • I REMEMBER SAYING TO MY MOM IN THAT MOMENT,
  • 00:21:03.080 --> 00:21:04.210
  • I SAID "YOU KNOW WHAT, MOM?
  • 00:21:04.240 --> 00:21:07.050
  • BEFORE I WAS FORMED IN MY MOTHER'S WOMB,
  • 00:21:07.080 --> 00:21:09.170
  • WHOSE EVER WOMB THAT WAS, HE KNEW ME.
  • 00:21:09.200 --> 00:21:12.100
  • HE KNITTED TOGETHER MY INNERMOST PARTS,
  • 00:21:12.130 --> 00:21:14.080
  • HE FASHIONED ALL OF MY DAYS
  • 00:21:14.110 --> 00:21:15.170
  • BEFORE AS YET THERE WAS ONE OF THEM.
  • 00:21:15.200 --> 00:21:16.290
  • I AM FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE."
  • 00:21:17.020 --> 00:21:20.060
  • I WANT TO TELL YOU IF YOU'VE JUST TUNED IN,
  • 00:21:20.090 --> 00:21:22.090
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR HISTORY IS,
  • 00:21:22.120 --> 00:21:24.090
  • BUT I WANT TO TELL YOU THIS MUCH, THAT GOD LOVES YOU.
  • 00:21:24.120 --> 00:21:26.250
  • THAT YOU ARE CREATED IN THE PLAN AND THE PURPOSE OF GOD.
  • 00:21:26.280 --> 00:21:30.200
  • YOU ARE NOT HERE BY ACCIDENT.
  • 00:21:30.230 --> 00:21:32.060
  • GOD ORCHESTRATED YOU, HE FORMED YOU, HE KNITTED YOU TOGETHER
  • 00:21:32.090 --> 00:21:35.220
  • IN YOUR MOTHER'S WOMB AND HAS A PLAN
  • 00:21:35.250 --> 00:21:37.190
  • AND A PURPOSE AND A DESTINY FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:21:37.220 --> 00:21:40.010
  • YOU MAY HAVE BEEN REJECTED.
  • 00:21:40.040 --> 00:21:41.270
  • YOU MAY FEEL LIKE YOU'RE JUST AN ACCIDENT.
  • 00:21:42.000 --> 00:21:43.220
  • IN FACT, SOMEONE MIGHT HAVE SPOKEN OVER YOUR LIFE
  • 00:21:43.250 --> 00:21:45.240
  • AND SAID "YOU SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN BORN.
  • 00:21:45.270 --> 00:21:47.150
  • YOU'RE JUST AN ACCIDENT, YOU DON'T DESERVE TO BE HERE."
  • 00:21:47.180 --> 00:21:50.120
  • I'M HERE TO TELL YOU THAT YOU WERE CREATED ON PURPOSE
  • 00:21:50.150 --> 00:21:52.270
  • AND FOR A PURPOSE.
  • 00:21:53.000 --> 00:21:53.290
  • AND THERE IS A GOD IN HEAVEN THAT LOVES YOU,
  • 00:21:54.020 --> 00:21:56.030
  • [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] AND HAS A PLAN
  • 00:21:56.060 --> 00:21:57.040
  • AND A PURPOSE AND A DESTINY FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:21:57.070 --> 00:22:00.120
  • HE LOVES YOU.
  • 00:22:00.150 --> 00:22:01.180
  • SO WHY DO TELL YOU ALL THAT STORY?
  • 00:22:01.210 --> 00:22:03.010
  • BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT, I DON'T PARTICULARLY LIKE
  • 00:22:03.040 --> 00:22:05.220
  • THE WAY I WAS BORN THE FIRST TIME.
  • 00:22:05.250 --> 00:22:08.130
  • SO THAT'S WHY I LOVE IT WHEN JESUS SAID
  • 00:22:08.160 --> 00:22:09.200
  • "YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN."
  • 00:22:09.230 --> 00:22:11.170
  • I'M LIKE YES, I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:22:11.200 --> 00:22:13.190
  • I'M GOING TO CLAIM THAT PHRASE BACK.
  • 00:22:13.220 --> 00:22:15.220
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE A LOT OF NEGATIVE CONNOTATIONS
  • 00:22:15.250 --> 00:22:18.010
  • WITH BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS BUT I'M HERE TO OWN IT.
  • 00:22:18.040 --> 00:22:20.020
  • I AM A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:22:20.050 --> 00:22:21.290
  • WHY? BECAUSE JESUS SAID YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.
  • 00:22:22.020 --> 00:22:25.110
  • YOU'VE GOTTA BE BORN AGAIN
  • 00:22:25.140 --> 00:22:27.160
  • FROM THIS REALM INTO A KINGDOM REALM.
  • 00:22:27.190 --> 00:22:32.110
  • WE ARE BORN AGAIN. I HAVE A BRAND NEW NATURE.
  • 00:22:32.140 --> 00:22:36.040
  • SECOND CORINTHIANS, CHAPTER FIVE, VERSE 17 SAYS
  • 00:22:36.070 --> 00:22:38.040
  • "I AM A NEW CREATION IN CHRIST JESUS.
  • 00:22:38.070 --> 00:22:41.000
  • I AM NO LONGER FROM HERE,
  • 00:22:41.030 --> 00:22:43.060
  • I'M BORN AGAIN INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD."
  • 00:22:43.090 --> 00:22:45.200
  • SO YOU'RE NOT BORN INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD,
  • 00:22:45.230 --> 00:22:47.250
  • YOU GET BORN AGAIN INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:22:47.280 --> 00:22:52.120

  • 00:22:52.150 --> 00:22:53.220
  • YOU ARE A BRAND NEW CREATION.
  • 00:22:53.250 --> 00:22:56.020
  • I HAVE A DIFFERENT CITIZENSHIP STATUS.

  • JUST LIKE NOW,
  • 00:22:57.090 --> 00:22:58.100
  • I HAVE A DIFFERENT CITIZENSHIP STATUS IN AMERICA.

  • I NEVER HAD ACCESS TO WHAT CITIZENS IN AMERICA DID.
  • 00:23:01.010 --> 00:23:04.180
  • NOW I CAN VOTE, NOW I CAN HAVE PROPERTY.
  • 00:23:04.210 --> 00:23:07.130
  • NOW I CAN WORK.
  • 00:23:07.160 --> 00:23:08.220
  • THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS I CAN DO AS A CITIZEN
  • 00:23:08.250 --> 00:23:11.040
  • THAT I COULD NOT DO WHEN I WASN'T A CITIZEN.
  • 00:23:11.070 --> 00:23:14.000
  • WELL, NOW THAT I'M BORN AGAIN, INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD,
  • 00:23:14.030 --> 00:23:17.210
  • THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS THAT I HAVE ACCESS TO.
  • 00:23:17.240 --> 00:23:20.120
  • AS A CITIZEN, MY LEGAL STATUS IS NOW IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:23:20.150 --> 00:23:25.250

  • LISTEN, IF YOU'RE NOT HAPPY ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE TODAY
  • 00:23:36.290 --> 00:23:39.270
