  • "FATHER, I DO NOT PRAY THAT YOU TAKE THEM OUT OF THE WORLD."
  • 00:00:01.270 --> 00:00:03.260
  • SO CHRISTIAN, STOP PRYING TO BE OUT OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:00:03.290 --> 00:00:06.040
  • I NEED YOU IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:00:06.070 --> 00:00:07.130
  • AND I NEED YOU TO BRING ALL OF THE CURRENCY
  • 00:00:07.160 --> 00:00:10.060
  • OF HEAVEN HERE TO EARTH,
  • 00:00:10.090 --> 00:00:11.270
  • LOVE AND JOY AND PEACE AND KINDNESS,
  • 00:00:12.000 --> 00:00:13.180
  • AND GOODNESS, AND LONG-SUFFERING AND SELF CONTROL.
  • 00:00:13.210 --> 00:00:16.080
  • WE NEED CHRISTIANS TO GET ABOUT THE FATHER'S BUSINESS.
  • 00:00:16.110 --> 00:00:20.050
  • HERE ON EARTH, WE'RE ON KINGDOM ASSIGNMENT.
  • 00:00:20.080 --> 00:00:23.150
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WHEN YOU SAY YES TO JESUS,
  • 00:00:23.180 --> 00:00:26.050
  • YOU BECOME AN AMBASSADOR FOR CHRIST HERE ON EARTH.
  • 00:00:26.080 --> 00:00:28.220
  • IN OTHER WORDS, AS A CITIZEN OF HEAVEN,
  • 00:00:28.250 --> 00:00:31.050
  • THE WAY YOU ACT IS MEANT TO REPRESENT HOW JESUS WOULD ACT.
  • 00:00:31.080 --> 00:00:35.000
  • THAT'S A MAJOR PRIVILEGE AND A HUGE RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:00:35.030 --> 00:00:38.000
  • HOW WE CHOOSE TO LIVE OUR LIVES MATTERS.
  • 00:00:38.030 --> 00:00:40.190
  • SO HOW CAN WE BE GOOD AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST?
  • 00:00:40.220 --> 00:00:43.090
  • THAT'S WHAT I'M EXPLORING TODAY.
  • 00:00:43.120 --> 00:00:45.020
  • I'M CHRISTINE CAINE,
  • 00:00:45.050 --> 00:00:46.050
  • AND I HAVE A PERSONAL MISSION TO EQUIP
  • 00:00:46.080 --> 00:00:48.030
  • AND EMPOWER PEOPLE LIKE YOU
  • 00:00:48.060 --> 00:00:49.230
  • TO CONNECT WITH YOUR GOD GIVEN PURPOSE AND POTENTIAL.
  • 00:00:49.260 --> 00:00:52.160
  • I'M SO GLAD THAT YOU'RE JOINING US.
  • 00:00:52.190 --> 00:00:54.110
  • LET'S JUMP RIGHT INTO THE MESSAGE.
  • 00:00:54.140 --> 00:00:55.280
  • [ENERGETIC INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]
  • 00:00:56.010 --> 00:01:06.180
  • [CONGREGATION APPLAUDING]
  • 00:01:06.210 --> 00:01:11.160
  • HEY, EVERYONE.
  • 00:01:11.190 --> 00:01:12.180
  • I'M SO GRATEFUL THAT YOU HAVE JOINED US TODAY.
  • 00:01:12.210 --> 00:01:15.260
  • I KNOW THAT GOD HAS A WORD FROM YOU.
  • 00:01:15.290 --> 00:01:18.100
  • I'M LOVING THIS SERIES,
  • 00:01:18.130 --> 00:01:19.120
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT WHAT IT IS TO BE A CITIZEN
  • 00:01:19.150 --> 00:01:22.260
  • OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:01:22.290 --> 00:01:24.120
  • NOW REMEMBER, I WAS BORN IN AUSTRALIA,
  • 00:01:24.150 --> 00:01:26.130
  • SO I HAVE AN AUSTRALIAN PASSPORT
  • 00:01:26.160 --> 00:01:28.150
  • BECAUSE I'M A CITIZEN OF AUSTRALIA.
  • 00:01:28.180 --> 00:01:31.080
  • BUT I CAME TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
  • 00:01:31.110 --> 00:01:34.170
  • AND AFTER MANY YEARS OF LIVING HERE WITH OUR FAMILY,
  • 00:01:34.200 --> 00:01:37.140
  • WE HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF BECOMING CITIZENS OF AMERICA.
  • 00:01:37.170 --> 00:01:40.190
  • NOW I HAD TO DO A VERY BIG TEST,
  • 00:01:40.220 --> 00:01:42.160
  • AND PASS A WHOLE LOT OF STUFF IN ORDER TO GET,
  • 00:01:42.190 --> 00:01:45.020
  • BECOME A CITIZEN, AND THEN TO GET MY PASSPORT.
  • 00:01:45.050 --> 00:01:47.290
  • SO HERE ON EARTH, I HAVE DUAL CITIZENSHIP.
  • 00:01:48.020 --> 00:01:51.060
  • I AM BOTH A CITIZEN OF AUSTRALIA
  • 00:01:51.090 --> 00:01:54.040
  • AND I'M A CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
  • 00:01:54.070 --> 00:01:57.260
  • BUT AS A CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:01:57.290 --> 00:01:59.170
  • I DON'T HAVE DUAL CITIZENSHIP.
  • 00:01:59.200 --> 00:02:01.070
  • I CAN HAVE THIS AS A HUMAN BEING HERE ON EARTH.
  • 00:02:01.100 --> 00:02:04.170
  • BUT IN THE SPIRITUAL REALM,
  • 00:02:04.200 --> 00:02:06.010
  • SOME OF US WE THINK THAT WE CAN HAVE DUAL CITIZENSHIP,
  • 00:02:06.040 --> 00:02:09.030
  • WE CAN THINK THAT WE CAN BE KIND OF IN THE WORLD
  • 00:02:09.060 --> 00:02:13.090
  • AND IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:02:13.120 --> 00:02:15.220
  • BUT THERE IS NO DUAL CITIZENSHIP.
  • 00:02:15.250 --> 00:02:17.260
  • JESUS SAID IN JOHN THREE, THAT YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.
  • 00:02:17.290 --> 00:02:22.100
  • AND THAT MEANS WHEN WE'RE BORN AGAIN,
  • 00:02:22.130 --> 00:02:23.290
  • WE'RE BORN INTO A NEW KINGDOM.
  • 00:02:24.020 --> 00:02:26.050
  • WE HAVE A NEW KING, KING JESUS IS WHO WE SERVE.
  • 00:02:26.080 --> 00:02:30.190
  • HE HAS SOVEREIGN POWER, SOVEREIGN AUTHORITY
  • 00:02:30.220 --> 00:02:34.130
  • AND WE ARE HIS SUBJECTS AND WE ARE HIS SERVANTS
  • 00:02:34.160 --> 00:02:38.110
  • AND WE SERVE KING JESUS.
  • 00:02:38.140 --> 00:02:39.290
  • NOW A LOT OF TIMES AS CHRISTIANS,
  • 00:02:40.020 --> 00:02:41.140
  • WE FORGET SOME OF THIS STUFF,
  • 00:02:41.170 --> 00:02:43.060
  • AND WE END UP LIVING OUR LIFE OUR OWN WAY.
  • 00:02:43.090 --> 00:02:46.000
  • AND YET JESUS SAYS, "I'M YOUR KING, YOU'RE IN MY KINGDOM.
  • 00:02:46.030 --> 00:02:49.150
  • "AND THIS IS HOW I WANT YOU TO PRAY.
  • 00:02:49.180 --> 00:02:50.280
  • "I WANT YOU TO PRAY, 'YOUR KINGDOM COME,
  • 00:02:51.010 --> 00:02:53.010
  • "'YOUR WILL BE DONE HERE ON EARTH, AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.'"
  • 00:02:53.040 --> 00:02:58.160
  • SEE A WHOLE LOT OF PEOPLE THEY'RE WAITING
  • 00:02:58.190 --> 00:03:00.150
  • TO ESCAPE FROM EARTH INTO HEAVEN.
  • 00:03:00.180 --> 00:03:03.060
  • I'M NOT HERE, I'M NOT ONE OF THOSE KIND OF PREACHERS,
  • 00:03:03.090 --> 00:03:05.170
  • A KIND OF LIKE ESCAPE EARTH PREACHER.
  • 00:03:05.200 --> 00:03:07.100
  • I LOVE EARTH.
  • 00:03:07.130 --> 00:03:08.100
  • I LOVE THIS WORLD.
  • 00:03:08.130 --> 00:03:09.180
  • I LOVE MOUSSAKA.
  • 00:03:09.210 --> 00:03:11.110
  • I LOVE SANTORINI.
  • 00:03:11.140 --> 00:03:13.030
  • I LOVE THE BEAUTY OF GOD'S CREATION.
  • 00:03:13.060 --> 00:03:15.250
  • I LOVE THE STARS AND I LOVE THE OCEAN
  • 00:03:15.280 --> 00:03:17.170
  • AND I LOVE THE MOUNTAINS AND I LOVE THE SNOW
  • 00:03:17.200 --> 00:03:19.090
  • AND I LOVE THE RAIN AND I LOVE THE SUN.
  • 00:03:19.120 --> 00:03:21.110
  • AND I LOVE THE BEAUTY OF GOD'S PEOPLE.
  • 00:03:21.140 --> 00:03:23.150
  • AND I LOVE EVEN THE QUIRKY LITTLE ANIMALS
  • 00:03:23.180 --> 00:03:25.140
  • AND I LIKE GIRAFFES, ESPECIALLY WITH BIG NECKS.
  • 00:03:25.170 --> 00:03:27.280
  • I LOVE, I MEAN GOD IS SO CREATIVE, HIS
  • 00:03:28.010 --> 00:03:31.140
  • EVERYTHING HE MADE SCRIPTURE SAYS IT WAS GOOD.
  • 00:03:31.170 --> 00:03:34.110
  • SO I AM NOT LOOKING TO EXIT PLANET EARTH.
  • 00:03:34.140 --> 00:03:39.120
  • BUT WHAT I AM LOOKING TO DO IS TO BRING HEAVEN TO EARTH.
  • 00:03:39.150 --> 00:03:43.050
  • WE HAVE A WORLD THAT IS FULL OF SUCH PAIN,
  • 00:03:43.080 --> 00:03:45.170
  • WE HAVE A WORLD THAT'S FULL OF SUCH CHAOS, SUCH ACTS,
  • 00:03:45.200 --> 00:03:48.230
  • YOU MIGHT HAVE TUNED INTO THIS PROGRAM RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:03:48.260 --> 00:03:51.290
  • AND IN YOUR LIFE, YOU'RE EXPERIENCING SO MUCH PAIN,
  • 00:03:52.020 --> 00:03:54.080
  • MAYBE YOU'VE JUST COME THROUGH A DIVORCE,
  • 00:03:54.110 --> 00:03:56.010
  • YOU'VE JUST RECEIVED A DIAGNOSIS THAT JUST SAYS
  • 00:03:56.040 --> 00:03:58.190
  • THAT THERE'S SICKNESS IN YOUR BODY
  • 00:03:58.220 --> 00:04:00.220
  • AND YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW IF IT'S CURABLE,
  • 00:04:00.250 --> 00:04:03.040
  • THAT ONE OF YOUR CHILDREN MAYBE HAS MOVED
  • 00:04:03.070 --> 00:04:05.030
  • SO FAR AWAY FROM GOD, IS ADDICTED TO CERTAIN SUBSTANCES,
  • 00:04:05.060 --> 00:04:08.080
  • OR YOU'VE HAD SOME LOSS OR SOME PAIN
  • 00:04:08.110 --> 00:04:10.140
  • OR SOME GRIEF, I UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:04:10.170 --> 00:04:12.090
  • THIS WORLD IS FALLEN, THIS WORLD IS BROKEN.
  • 00:04:12.120 --> 00:04:15.040
  • THAT'S WHY THIS WORLD IS NOT THE GOAL.
  • 00:04:15.070 --> 00:04:16.220
  • JESUS IS COMING BACK NOT TO BLOW IT UP,
  • 00:04:16.250 --> 00:04:18.210
  • BUT TO REDEEM THIS WORLD.
  • 00:04:18.240 --> 00:04:20.030
  • WE'RE GONNA HAVE A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH,
  • 00:04:20.060 --> 00:04:22.190
  • AND THAT'S GONNA BRING COMFORT,
  • 00:04:22.220 --> 00:04:24.060
  • AND THAT'S GONNA BRING HOPE, AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL
  • 00:04:24.090 --> 00:04:27.160
  • OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IS COMING BACK.
  • 00:04:27.190 --> 00:04:29.120
  • THIS IS NOT WHERE IT ALL ENDS.
  • 00:04:29.150 --> 00:04:30.270
  • BUT WHILE WE ARE HERE, AS CHRISTIANS, WE HAVE A MANDATE.
  • 00:04:31.000 --> 00:04:34.190
  • WE HAVE A KING, WE LIVE IN THE KINGDOM, THE KINGDOM OF GOD,
  • 00:04:34.220 --> 00:04:38.170
  • AND WE HAVE AN ASSIGNMENT.
  • 00:04:38.200 --> 00:04:40.190
  • LET YOUR WILL BE DONE HERE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:04:40.220 --> 00:04:45.190
  • WE HAVE TOO MANY CHRISTIANS
  • 00:04:45.220 --> 00:04:46.250
  • THAT HAVE ABDICATED THEIR RESPONSIBILITY HERE ON EARTH.
  • 00:04:46.280 --> 00:04:49.260
  • IT'S JUST LIKE I'M OUT OF HERE.
  • 00:04:49.290 --> 00:04:51.020
  • THEY'VE RUN TO THE HILLS, STOCKPILE THEIR STUFF,
  • 00:04:51.050 --> 00:04:53.210
  • AND I'M LIKE, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
  • 00:04:53.240 --> 00:04:55.110
  • "I WASN'T CALLED TO RUN AWAY FROM THE WORLD.
  • 00:04:55.140 --> 00:04:57.150
  • "I WAS CALLED TO GO INTO ALL THE WORLD."
  • 00:04:57.180 --> 00:05:00.090
  • AND JESUS PRAYED IN JOHN 17,
  • 00:05:00.120 --> 00:05:02.000
  • "FATHER, I DO NOT PRAY THAT YOU TAKE THAT OUT OF THE WORLD."
  • 00:05:02.030 --> 00:05:04.020
  • SO CHRISTIAN, STOP PRAYING TO BE OUT OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:05:04.050 --> 00:05:06.110
  • I NEED YOU IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:05:06.140 --> 00:05:07.200
  • AND I NEED YOU TO BRING ALL OF THE CURRENCY

  • AND KINDNESS AND GOODNESS,
  • 00:05:13.120 --> 00:05:14.100
  • AND LOG-SUFFERING AND SELF CONTROL.
  • 00:05:14.130 --> 00:05:16.130
  • WE NEED CHRISTIANS TO GET ABOUT THE FATHER'S BUSINESS.
  • 00:05:16.160 --> 00:05:20.110
  • HERE ON EARTH, WE'RE ON KINGDOM ASSIGNMENT.
  • 00:05:20.140 --> 00:05:22.220
  • WHEN YOU WOKE UP TO THAT,
  • 00:05:22.250 --> 00:05:23.270
  • I MEAN, THINK OF SOME OF THE MOVIES THAT YOU LIKE,
  • 00:05:24.000 --> 00:05:26.010
  • WHEN YOU GOT MEN IN THERE, UNDERCOVER AGENT,
  • 00:05:26.040 --> 00:05:27.270
  • WE ARE UNDERCOVER AGENTS.
  • 00:05:28.000 --> 00:05:30.140
  • THAT'S WHAT WE'RE HERE FOR.
  • 00:05:30.170 --> 00:05:32.120
  • YOU THINK, "WELL, I'M JUST A HOUSEWIFE FOR,
  • 00:05:32.150 --> 00:05:34.070
  • "YOU KNOW, I JUST WORK IN A FACTORY."
  • 00:05:34.100 --> 00:05:35.220
  • NO, YOU'RE NOT JUST ANYTHING.
  • 00:05:35.250 --> 00:05:37.220

  • AND WE ARE CALLED TO BRING HEAVEN TO EARTH.

  • SO DON'T GET SO OBSESSED WITH YOUR TASK HERE ON EARTH
  • 00:05:46.260 --> 00:05:49.240
  • THAT YOU FORGET WHAT YOUR ASSIGNMENT IS HERE ON EARTH.
  • 00:05:49.270 --> 00:05:53.250
  • WE HAVE NEW RIGHTS AND NEW PRIVILEGES
  • 00:05:53.280 --> 00:05:56.140

  • 00:07:14.210 --> 00:07:17.090
  • IN JESUS NAME.
  • 00:07:17.120 --> 00:07:18.210
  • THE WORD OF THE LORD TO YOU TODAY IS,
  • 00:07:18.240 --> 00:07:20.270
  • GET OVER IT, SWEETHEART.
  • 00:07:21.000 --> 00:07:21.290
  • OKAY, SO GET OVER IT.
  • 00:07:22.020 --> 00:07:25.040
  • I COULD DO ALL THINGS, PHILIPPINES 4:13 SAYS,
  • 00:07:25.070 --> 00:07:27.090
  • I COULD DO ALL THINGS THROUGH WHO?
  • 00:07:27.120 --> 00:07:28.240
  • THROUGH CHRIST JESUS WHO STRENGTHENS ME.
  • 00:07:28.270 --> 00:07:30.290
  • YOU HAVE GRACE TO THE RACE THAT GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO.
  • 00:07:31.020 --> 00:07:33.210
  • YOU HAVE GRACE FOR THIS RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:07:33.240 --> 00:07:35.160
  • YOU HAVE GRACE FOR THIS JOB,
  • 00:07:35.190 --> 00:07:37.010
  • YOU HAVE GRACE TO BE THE FATHER
  • 00:07:37.040 --> 00:07:38.130
  • OR MOTHER THAT HE'S CALLED YOU TO BE.
  • 00:07:38.160 --> 00:07:40.010
  • YOU HAVE GRACE IN THIS SEASON OF YOUR SINGLENESS,
  • 00:07:40.040 --> 00:07:42.140
  • YOU HAVE GRACE IN THIS CHALLENGING SEASON
  • 00:07:42.170 --> 00:07:45.030
  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT WITH CHRIST STRENGTH,
  • 00:07:45.060 --> 00:07:47.050
  • YOU HAVE THE GRACE TO BE WHO YOU NEED TO BE
  • 00:07:47.080 --> 00:07:49.240
  • AND DO WHAT GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO DO IN THIS SEASON.
  • 00:07:49.270 --> 00:07:52.230
  • WHETHER YOU'RE IN A SEASON OF TRIAL,
  • 00:07:52.260 --> 00:07:54.090
  • OR TRIBULATION, OR JOY, OR ECSTASY, WHATEVER IT IS,
  • 00:07:54.120 --> 00:07:58.010
  • I NEED YOU TO KNOW, IT'S THE GRACE OF GOD
  • 00:07:58.040 --> 00:07:59.260
  • THAT'S GONNA ENABLE YOU TO GET THROUGH,
  • 00:07:59.290 --> 00:08:01.280
  • TO WHAT IT IS THAT GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO DO.
  • 00:08:02.010 --> 00:08:04.140
  • ROMANS 8:37 SAYS, I'M NOT JUST A CONQUEROR,
  • 00:08:04.170 --> 00:08:07.020
  • BUT I AM MORE THAN A CONQUEROR THROUGH CHRIST JESUS
  • 00:08:07.050 --> 00:08:10.060
  • WHO STRENGTHENS ME.
  • 00:08:10.090 --> 00:08:11.140
  • NOW, LET ME GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT THE MORE THAN IS.
  • 00:08:11.170 --> 00:08:13.270
  • A CONQUEROR IS, MANY OF YOU KNOW
  • 00:08:14.000 --> 00:08:15.000
  • THAT I COME FROM A BACKGROUND
  • 00:08:15.030 --> 00:08:17.010
  • WHERE I EXPERIENCED SEXUAL ABUSE FOR MANY,
  • 00:08:17.040 --> 00:08:19.040
  • MANY YEARS AT THE HANDS OF SEVERAL DIFFERENT MEN.
  • 00:08:19.070 --> 00:08:22.110
  • I GREW UP THE DAUGHTER
  • 00:08:22.140 --> 00:08:23.190
  • OF IMMIGRANTS IN THE POOR ZIP CODE IN MY STATE.
  • 00:08:23.220 --> 00:08:26.200
  • I WAS LEFT IN A HOSPITAL UNNAMED
  • 00:08:26.230 --> 00:08:28.230
  • AND UNWANTED WHEN OUR WAS BORN.
  • 00:08:28.260 --> 00:08:30.100
  • SO I DIDN'T HAVE THE BEST START IN LIFE.
  • 00:08:30.130 --> 00:08:32.190
  • I HAD A LOT OF SHAME.
  • 00:08:32.220 --> 00:08:33.210
  • I HAD A LOT OF REJECTION, I HAD A LOT OF FEAR,
  • 00:08:33.240 --> 00:08:35.210
  • I HAD A LOT OF ANXIETY, I HAD A LOT OF INSECURITY.
  • 00:08:35.240 --> 00:08:38.210
  • I HAD A LOT OF ANGER,
  • 00:08:38.240 --> 00:08:39.250
  • A LOT OF UNFORGIVENESS AND A LOT OF BITTERNESS.
  • 00:08:39.280 --> 00:08:42.190
  • AND THAT'S NORMALLY WHAT HAPPENS WITH PEOPLE
  • 00:08:42.220 --> 00:08:44.150
  • THAT HAVE GOT MY KIND OF BROKENNESS
  • 00:08:44.180 --> 00:08:46.160
  • AND MY KIND OF BACKGROUND AND THE THINGS
  • 00:08:46.190 --> 00:08:48.190
  • THAT HAPPENED TO ME.
  • 00:08:48.220 --> 00:08:50.040
  • AND SO I COULD HAVE LIVED AS A VICTIM
  • 00:08:50.070 --> 00:08:52.010
  • FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.
  • 00:08:52.040 --> 00:08:53.060
  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT A LOT
  • 00:08:53.090 --> 00:08:54.050
  • OF PEOPLE WOULD HAVE FELT SORRY FOR ME,
  • 00:08:54.080 --> 00:08:55.200
  • AND RIGHTLY SO WHAT HAPPENED WAS NOT FAIR.
  • 00:08:55.230 --> 00:08:58.060
  • WHAT HAPPENED WAS NOT RIGHT.
  • 00:08:58.090 --> 00:09:00.030
  • BUT JESUS SAYS, "I DIDN'T COME JUST SO YOU COULD GET BY,
  • 00:09:00.060 --> 00:09:04.050
  • "I CAME TO GIVE YOU LIFE AND LIFE MORE ABUNDANT,
  • 00:09:04.080 --> 00:09:06.170
  • "WHICH MEANS CHRISTINE, I COULD REDEEM, I COULD HEAL,
  • 00:09:06.200 --> 00:09:09.090
  • "AND I CAN RESTORE AND MAKE UP EVERYTHING
  • 00:09:09.120 --> 00:09:12.060
  • "THAT THE ENEMY TOOK FROM YOU,
  • 00:09:12.090 --> 00:09:13.190
  • "AND I CAN GIVE YOU A LIFE BETTER THAN YOU,
  • 00:09:13.220 --> 00:09:15.180
  • "OTHERWISE WOULD HAVE HAD IN
  • 00:09:15.210 --> 00:09:17.080
  • "AND THROUGH A RELATIONSHIP WITH ME."
  • 00:09:17.110 --> 00:09:19.030
  • AND SO THEN IT WOULD HAVE BEEN ONE THING
  • 00:09:19.060 --> 00:09:21.130
  • TO JUST CONQUER AND GO,
  • 00:09:21.160 --> 00:09:22.150
  • YOU KNOW WHAT I'M LIVING A VICTORIOUS LIFE,
  • 00:09:22.180 --> 00:09:25.000
  • I'VE OVERCOME BY THE GRACE OF GOD,
  • 00:09:25.030 --> 00:09:26.230
  • THE OBSTACLES OF MY PAST, THE PAIN OF MY BROKENNESS,
  • 00:09:26.260 --> 00:09:29.140
  • THE PAIN OF ABUSE AND THE PAIN OF THE HURT
  • 00:09:29.170 --> 00:09:31.230
  • OF THE THINGS THAT HAPPENED TO ME.
  • 00:09:31.260 --> 00:09:33.090
  • BUT MORE THAN CONQUEROR BECOMES THE POINT
  • 00:09:33.120 --> 00:09:36.070
  • WHERE YOU CAN NOW START USING YOUR PAIN FOR A PURPOSE,
  • 00:09:36.100 --> 00:09:39.080
  • WHEN YOUR PAST CAN GIVE SOMEBODY ELSE A FUTURE.
  • 00:09:39.110 --> 00:09:41.260
  • AND SO NOT ONLY DID JESUS BRING ME THROUGH,
  • 00:09:41.290 --> 00:09:44.070
  • BUT THEN BY THE GRACE OF GOD IN 2008,
  • 00:09:44.100 --> 00:09:46.180
  • HE ENABLED US TO START A21.
  • 00:09:46.210 --> 00:09:48.280
  • AND WE WERE ABLE TO START RESCUING THE VICTIMS
  • 00:09:49.010 --> 00:09:51.090
  • OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:09:51.120 --> 00:09:54.140
  • WE'RE INTO 15 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES
  • 00:09:54.170 --> 00:09:56.020
  • AS OF THE TIME OF THIS RECORDING RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:09:56.050 --> 00:09:58.140
  • AND THAT'S GROWING ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:09:58.170 --> 00:09:59.280
  • AND WE'RE SEEING PEOPLE IMPACTED.
  • 00:10:00.010 --> 00:10:01.260
  • AND I THINK TO MYSELF,
  • 00:10:01.290 --> 00:10:02.270
  • EVERY TIME WE PUT A TRAFFICKER IN JAIL,
  • 00:10:03.000 --> 00:10:05.070
  • EVERY TIME A YOUNG WOMAN OR A CHILD OR A MAN IS RESCUED OUT
  • 00:10:05.100 --> 00:10:09.010
  • OF SEX TRAFFICKING OR FORCED LABOR TRAFFICKING,
  • 00:10:09.040 --> 00:10:11.110
  • I THINK, "DEVIL I BET YOU WISH YOU LEFT ME ALONE.
  • 00:10:11.140 --> 00:10:13.180
  • "YOU COULD STICK THAT IN YOUR PIPE AND SMOKE IT."
  • 00:10:13.210 --> 00:10:15.150
  • BECAUSE THE VERY THING THAT THE ENEMY MEANT FOR EVIL,
  • 00:10:15.180 --> 00:10:20.070
  • GOD TURNED IT AROUND, AND HE WORKED IT TOGETHER FOR GOOD.
  • 00:10:20.100 --> 00:10:23.250
  • SO WHAT'S MORE THAN A CONQUEROR?
  • 00:10:23.280 --> 00:10:25.130
  • NOT THAT JUST JESUS REDEEMED ME AND RESTORED ME
  • 00:10:25.160 --> 00:10:28.180
  • AND HELPED ME BUT THEN HE GIVES ME THE CAPACITY
  • 00:10:28.210 --> 00:10:30.210
  • TO REACH BACK AND OPEN THE PRISON DOORS
  • 00:10:30.240 --> 00:10:32.140
  • FOR THOSE THAT ARE STILL BOUND,
  • 00:10:32.170 --> 00:10:33.260
  • NOT JUST A CONQUEROR MYSELF,
  • 00:10:33.290 --> 00:10:35.080
  • BUT MORE THAN MEANS I'M NOW USING IT TO HELP SOMEBODY ELSE.
  • 00:10:35.110 --> 00:10:38.270
  • GOD DIDN'T COME JUST TO SET YOU FREE,
  • 00:10:39.000 --> 00:10:40.280
  • BUT TO ENABLE YOU TO SET OTHERS FREE AROUND THAT.
  • 00:10:41.010 --> 00:10:43.200
  • SO WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS.
  • 00:10:43.230 --> 00:10:45.110
  • EPHESIANS CHAPTER ONE, VERSE THREE SAYS,
  • 00:10:45.140 --> 00:10:47.110
  • BLESSED BE THE GOD AND FATHER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:10:47.140 --> 00:10:49.230

  • I KNOW, IT'S IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:11:03.130 --> 00:11:05.100
  • CAN YOU BELIEVE WHAT'S IN THE BIBLE?
  • 00:11:05.130 --> 00:11:07.020
  • IT IS UNBELIEVABLE WHAT IS IN THE BIBLE,
  • 00:11:07.050 --> 00:11:10.040
  • THAT IT SAYS THE GOD HAS BLESSED US
  • 00:11:10.070 --> 00:11:12.260

  • 00:11:12.290 --> 00:11:16.130

  • A LOT OF THE WORK THAT WE DO AT A21 OF COURSE,
  • 00:16:21.220 --> 00:16:23.200

  • WELL, THAT AMBASSADOR IS NOT THERE FOR THEIR OWN PURPOSE.
  • 00:16:43.200 --> 00:16:47.190
  • THEY ARE NOT THERE REPRESENTING THEMSELVES.
  • 00:16:47.220 --> 00:16:49.280
  • THEY'RE REPRESENTING THE COUNTRY
  • 00:16:50.010 --> 00:16:52.120
  • AND THE GOVERNMENT THAT THEY HAVE BEEN SENT OVER BY.
  • 00:16:52.150 --> 00:16:55.190
  • THEY REPRESENT EVERYTHING THAT THAT COUNTRY STANDS FOR.

  • THEY REPRESENT THE SPIRIT OF THAT NATION.
  • 00:17:01.030 --> 00:17:04.000
  • THAT'S WHAT THEY BRING.
  • 00:17:04.030 --> 00:17:04.250
  • THEY DON'T BRING THEIR OWN OPINION,
  • 00:17:04.280 --> 00:17:07.060

  • AN AMBASSADOR ACCORDING TO ACTS 11:26,
  • 00:17:28.040 --> 00:17:30.210
  • REPRESENTS THE ONE WHO SENT THEM.

  • OF THE PERSON THAT SENT THEM.
  • 00:17:38.280 --> 00:17:41.010
  • AND MATTHEW 28, AN AMBASSADORS SPEAKS
  • 00:17:41.040 --> 00:17:43.120
  • WITH THE AUTHORITY OF THE PERSON THAT SENDS THEM.
  • 00:17:43.150 --> 00:17:47.020
  • JESUS SAYS, "GO INTO ALL THE WORLD AND MAKE DISCIPLES,

  • "I HAVE GIVEN YOU ALL AUTHORITY."
  • 00:17:50.020 --> 00:17:53.120
  • AN AMBASSADOR IS IN CONSTANT COMMUNICATION

  • TO YOUR FRIENDS AT UNIVERSITY AND SCHOOL,
  • 00:21:50.110 --> 00:21:52.000
  • HOW ARE YOU REPRESENTING HIM?
  • 00:21:52.030 --> 00:21:54.020
  • BECAUSE WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT,
  • 00:21:54.050 --> 00:21:56.180
  • YOU ARE IF YOU ARE IN CHRIST,
  • 00:21:56.210 --> 00:21:58.230
  • YOU ARE AN AMBASSADOR FOR CHRIST ON THIS EARTH.
  • 00:21:58.260 --> 00:22:01.130
  • AND EVERY NOW AND AGAIN, IT DOES US ALL GOOD TO REMEMBER
  • 00:22:01.160 --> 00:22:04.250
  • THAT WE ARE JUST HERE FOR A FLEETING MOMENT ON THIS EARTH,
  • 00:22:04.280 --> 00:22:07.210
  • AND THAT WE ARE ALL GONNA STAND BEFORE GOD
  • 00:22:07.240 --> 00:22:10.030
  • AND WE ARE ALL GONNA GIVE AN ACCOUNT FOR OUR ONE
  • 00:22:10.060 --> 00:22:12.200
  • AND ONLY LIFE ON THIS PLANET.
  • 00:22:12.230 --> 00:22:15.060
  • DID WE LIVE OUR LIFE FOR THE GLORY OF GOD?
  • 00:22:15.090 --> 00:22:17.290
  • DID WE LIVE OUR LIFE AS AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST?
  • 00:22:18.020 --> 00:22:21.150
  • I'M NOT SAYING THAT WE LIVE A PERFECT LIFE.
  • 00:22:21.180 --> 00:22:23.160
  • I'M NOT SAYING THAT WE LIVE A MISTAKE FREE LIFE.
  • 00:22:23.190 --> 00:22:26.050
  • I'M HERE TO TELL YOU OPENLY I MAKE MORE MISTAKES.
  • 00:22:26.080 --> 00:22:30.040
  • I MAKE AS MANY MISTAKES AS ANYBODY ELSE.
  • 00:22:30.070 --> 00:22:32.060
  • BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOU CAN QUICKLY NOT GET UP AND SAY,
  • 00:22:32.090 --> 00:22:35.250
  • "YOU KNOW WHAT, GOD, IF WE CAN REPENT,
  • 00:22:35.280 --> 00:22:37.230
  • "THE BIBLE SAYS IF WE CONFESS OUR SINS,
  • 00:22:37.260 --> 00:22:39.150
  • "HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS
  • 00:22:39.180 --> 00:22:41.230
  • "AND CLEANSE US FROM ALL AND RIGHTEOUSNESS."
  • 00:22:41.260 --> 00:22:44.120
  • WE CAN KEEP SHORT ACCOUNTS WITH GOD.
  • 00:22:44.150 --> 00:22:46.100
  • WE COME BEFORE GOD, WE DON'T SAY, "I'M PERFECT,"
  • 00:22:46.130 --> 00:22:48.290
  • 'CAUSE IF THAT WAS THE CASE,
  • 00:22:49.020 --> 00:22:49.280
  • NONE OF US WOULD WANNA BE AN AMBASSADOR,
  • 00:22:50.010 --> 00:22:51.140
  • BECAUSE NONE OF US CAN BE PERFECT ALL OF THE TIME.
  • 00:22:51.170 --> 00:22:53.250
  • NONE OF US GET IT RIGHT ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:22:53.280 --> 00:22:55.200
  • WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES, WE ALL FAIL.
  • 00:22:55.230 --> 00:22:58.070
  • AND I'M HERE TO TELL YOU WE CAN GET BACK OUT,
  • 00:22:58.100 --> 00:23:00.070
  • WE MAKE IT RIGHT WITH GOD AND WE KEEP GOING.
  • 00:23:00.100 --> 00:23:02.210
  • BUT I'M SAYING AS A PATTERN OF OUR LIFE,
  • 00:23:02.240 --> 00:23:05.240
  • ARE WE DESIRING TO BE AMBASSADORS FOR THE KING?
  • 00:23:05.270 --> 00:23:08.280
  • ARE WE DESIRING TO MAKE OUR LIVES COUNT
  • 00:23:09.010 --> 00:23:11.210
  • FOR THE GLORY OF GOD?
  • 00:23:11.240 --> 00:23:13.060
  • SO HE SENDS US OUT INTO THIS WORLD
  • 00:23:13.090 --> 00:23:15.170
  • WITH ALL OF THE RESOURCES OF HEAVEN BEHIND US,
  • 00:23:15.200 --> 00:23:19.180
  • AND HE SAYS, "WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO?
  • 00:23:19.210 --> 00:23:21.080
  • "ARE YOU GONNA REPRESENT ME IN YOUR RELATIONSHIPS?
  • 00:23:21.110 --> 00:23:23.270

  • "AND YOUR MORALITY ON THIS EARTH?

  • "IN YOUR WORKPLACES, IN YOUR PRIORITIES, IN YOUR SPENDING,

  • "IN YOUR VALUES, IN YOUR QUEST FOR JUSTICE ON THE EARTH?"
  • 00:23:35.280 --> 00:23:40.020
  • ARE WE GONNA START ACTING LIKE WHO WE ARE,
  • 00:23:40.050 --> 00:23:42.160
  • AMBASSADORS OF THE KING?
  • 00:23:42.190 --> 00:23:44.050
  • ARE WE GONNA START ACTING LIKE WHO WE ARE,
  • 00:23:44.080 --> 00:23:46.120
  • AMBASSADORS THAT ARE CALLED TO BRING HEAVEN TO EARTH?
  • 00:23:46.150 --> 00:23:49.130
  • ARE WE GONNA STOP LIVING OUR LIFE OUR OWN WAY,

  • FOR OUR OWN COMFORT, FOR OUR OWN IS,
  • 00:23:52.090 --> 00:23:54.230
  • FOR OUR OWN SELF ACTUALIZATION?
  • 00:23:54.260 --> 00:23:56.180
  • AND ARE WE GOING TO START LIVING A LIFE
  • 00:23:56.210 --> 00:23:58.280
  • THAT BRINGS GLORY TO KING JESUS?
  • 00:23:59.010 --> 00:24:01.070
  • ARE WE GONNA START LIVING A LIFE THAT SAYS,
  • 00:24:01.100 --> 00:24:03.120
  • YOU KNOW WHAT I GAVE MY LIFE TO CHRIST,
  • 00:24:03.150 --> 00:24:05.260
  • IT IS NO LONGER I THAT LIVES BUT CHRIST LIVES IN ME,
