  • AND I'M WONDERING IF HE'S TALKING THROUGH THE AGES
  • 00:00:02.260 --> 00:00:05.170
  • TO OUR SOCIAL MEDIA AGE.
  • 00:00:05.200 --> 00:00:07.220
  • BECAUSE IN OUR GENERATION OF FOLLOWS AND LIKES,
  • 00:00:07.250 --> 00:00:11.020
  • WE JUST FOLLOW ANYONE WITHOUT EVEN THINKING
  • 00:00:11.050 --> 00:00:13.020
  • ABOUT WHERE ARE THEY ACTUALLY GOING?
  • 00:00:13.050 --> 00:00:15.210
  • WHERE ARE THE PEOPLE GOING THAT YOU FOLLOW?
  • 00:00:15.240 --> 00:00:18.220
  • BECAUSE YOU MIGHT NOT WANNA BE GOING
  • 00:00:18.250 --> 00:00:20.020
  • WHERE THEY'RE GONNA END UP.
  • 00:00:20.050 --> 00:00:22.240
  • ONE OF THE BENEFITS OF KNOWING JESUS IS NEW CITIZENSHIP.
  • 00:00:22.270 --> 00:00:26.150
  • YOU ARE NO LONGER A CITIZEN OF EARTH,
  • 00:00:26.180 --> 00:00:28.150
  • YOU'RE A CITIZEN OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:00:28.180 --> 00:00:30.210
  • THAT MEANS YOU HAVE BEEN ALL THE PRIVILEGES,
  • 00:00:30.240 --> 00:00:33.250
  • RIGHTS, RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:00:33.280 --> 00:00:37.000
  • YOU HAVE BEEN AUTHORIZED TO LITERALLY BRING HEAVEN TO EARTH.
  • 00:00:37.030 --> 00:00:40.240
  • ARE YOU READY TO GET STARTED TODAY?
  • 00:00:40.270 --> 00:00:42.180
  • I'M CHRISTINE CAINE, AND I HAVE A PERSONAL MISSION
  • 00:00:42.210 --> 00:00:45.060
  • TO EQUIP AND EMPOWER PEOPLE LIKE YOU
  • 00:00:45.090 --> 00:00:47.040
  • TO CONNECT WITH YOUR GOD-GIVEN PURPOSE AND POTENTIAL.
  • 00:00:47.070 --> 00:00:50.040
  • I AM SO GLAD YOU'RE TUNING IN, LET'S GET STARTED.
  • 00:00:50.070 --> 00:00:53.180
  • [UPBEAT MUSIC]
  • 00:00:53.210 --> 00:01:09.020
  • HEY EVERYONE, I AM SO GRATEFUL THAT YOU'VE JOINED US TODAY,
  • 00:01:09.050 --> 00:01:11.260
  • I KNOW THAT GOD HAS A WORD IN SEASON FOR YOU.
  • 00:01:11.290 --> 00:01:15.250
  • I'M SO GRATEFUL YOU'RE GONNA SPEND
  • 00:01:15.280 --> 00:01:17.050
  • THE NEXT FEW MINUTES WITH US,
  • 00:01:17.080 --> 00:01:18.270
  • WE ARE TALKING ABOUT WHAT IT IS
  • 00:01:19.000 --> 00:01:21.200
  • TO BE A CITIZEN OF HEAVEN AND A RESIDENT OF EARTH.
  • 00:01:21.230 --> 00:01:25.270
  • NOW REMEMBER, I WAS BORN A CITIZEN OF AUSTRALIA,
  • 00:01:26.000 --> 00:01:29.100
  • VEGEMITE, MEAT PIES, HOLDEN CARS,
  • 00:01:29.130 --> 00:01:31.210
  • WELCOME TO AUSTRALIA, AND I RECENTLY,
  • 00:01:31.240 --> 00:01:34.200
  • MY FAMILY BECAME CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
  • 00:01:34.230 --> 00:01:40.030
  • SO MY DAUGHTERS TALK WITH
  • 00:01:40.060 --> 00:01:42.060
  • A LITTLE BIT OF AN AMERICAN ACCENT,
  • 00:01:42.090 --> 00:01:43.220
  • THEY'RE LIKE MOM, I'M LIKE WHAT'S MOM?
  • 00:01:43.250 --> 00:01:45.220
  • AND THEY'RE LIKE AWESOME, IT'S TOTALLY AWESOME.
  • 00:01:45.250 --> 00:01:49.030
  • ANYWAY, SO I SMILE, BECAUSE I'M LIKE NO, WE SAY AWESOME,
  • 00:01:49.060 --> 00:01:54.130
  • AUSTRALIANS SAY AWE-SOME.
  • 00:01:54.160 --> 00:01:57.020
  • BUT YOU KNOW, ON THIS EARTH,
  • 00:01:57.050 --> 00:01:59.260
  • WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THE WHOLE CONCEPT
  • 00:01:59.290 --> 00:02:01.090
  • THAT I CAN HOLD DUAL CITIZENSHIP,
  • 00:02:01.120 --> 00:02:02.280
  • I'M SO GRATEFUL WHILE I'M ON THIS EARTH,
  • 00:02:03.010 --> 00:02:04.280
  • I'M BOTH AN AUSTRALIAN CITIZEN AND AN AMERICAN CITIZEN.
  • 00:02:05.010 --> 00:02:08.120
  • BUT WHEN IT COMES TO THE KINGDOM OF GOD,
  • 00:02:08.150 --> 00:02:10.260
  • WHEN IT COMES TO THE SPIRITUAL REALM,
  • 00:02:10.290 --> 00:02:12.160
  • THERE IS NO DUAL CITIZENSHIP,
  • 00:02:12.190 --> 00:02:14.060
  • YOU ARE EITHER FROM THE KINGDOM OF GOD,
  • 00:02:14.090 --> 00:02:17.130
  • OR THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS, THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND.
  • 00:02:17.160 --> 00:02:20.050
  • PEOPLE GO I'M ON THE FENCE, I'M LIKE HONEY,
  • 00:02:20.080 --> 00:02:21.260
  • THERE'S NO FENCE, THERE IS NO FENCE,
  • 00:02:21.290 --> 00:02:24.120
  • YOU CAN'T HAVE A FOOT IN BOTH CAMPS,
  • 00:02:24.150 --> 00:02:26.240
  • IT DOESN'T EXIST, IT'S ACTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:02:26.270 --> 00:02:29.000
  • SOME PEOPLE BELIEVE THESE KINDA LIES,
  • 00:02:29.030 --> 00:02:31.070
  • AND THE ENEMY WOULD LOVE YOU TO BELIEVE THAT KIND OF LIE,
  • 00:02:31.100 --> 00:02:33.160
  • BUT YOU'RE EITHER A CHRISTIAN, OR YOU'RE NOT A CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:02:33.190 --> 00:02:35.250
  • IT'S AS SIMPLE AS THAT, YOU'RE EITHER FOLLOWING JESUS,
  • 00:02:35.280 --> 00:02:38.000
  • OR YOU'RE NOT FOLLOWING JESUS,
  • 00:02:38.030 --> 00:02:39.090
  • YOU ARE EITHER BORN AGAIN, OR YOU ARE NOT BORN AGAIN,
  • 00:02:39.120 --> 00:02:42.120
  • AND SO THE BIBLE SAYS YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.
  • 00:02:42.150 --> 00:02:44.200
  • IF YOU ARE, THEN WE ARE FROM THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN,
  • 00:02:44.230 --> 00:02:49.030
  • WE HAVE A BRAND NEW CITIZENSHIP,
  • 00:02:49.060 --> 00:02:50.280
  • JUST LIKE I GOT A NEW CITIZENSHIP FROM
  • 00:02:51.010 --> 00:02:53.180
  • I HAVE A BRAND NEW CITIZENSHIP FROM THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS
  • 00:02:53.210 --> 00:02:56.200
  • TO THE KINGDOM OF LIGHT, THAT MEANS I HAVE ACCESS,
  • 00:02:56.230 --> 00:02:59.280
  • SCRIPTURE TELLS ME, IN THE BOOK OF EPHESIANS,
  • 00:03:00.030 --> 00:03:01.200
  • TO EVERY SPIRITUAL BLESSING IN HEAVENLY PLACES.
  • 00:03:01.230 --> 00:03:05.090
  • I MEAN, LEMME JUST THINK ABOUT THAT
  • 00:03:05.120 --> 00:03:06.100
  • FOR THE NEXT 10 MILLENNIUMS,
  • 00:03:06.130 --> 00:03:07.110
  • SO YOU KNOW, EVERY SPIRITUAL BLESSING,
  • 00:03:07.140 --> 00:03:09.250
  • I HAVE ACCESS TO THAT,
  • 00:03:09.280 --> 00:03:10.280
  • AND JESUS SAID THIS IS HOW I WANT YOU TO PRAY,
  • 00:03:11.010 --> 00:03:12.200
  • I WANT YOU TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU PRAY YOUR KINGDOM COME,
  • 00:03:12.230 --> 00:03:15.070
  • YOUR WILL BE DONE, WHERE?
  • 00:03:15.100 --> 00:03:17.000
  • HERE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:03:17.030 --> 00:03:20.150
  • AND SO AS WE WRAP UP THIS SERIES,
  • 00:03:20.180 --> 00:03:22.080
  • WE'RE LOOKING AT WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BRING
  • 00:03:22.110 --> 00:03:24.070
  • THE KINGDOM OF GOD HERE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN,
  • 00:03:24.100 --> 00:03:27.070
  • TO REMEMBER THAT I AM A CITIZEN OF HEAVEN
  • 00:03:27.100 --> 00:03:30.260
  • AND A RESIDENT OF EARTH.
  • 00:03:30.290 --> 00:03:32.260
  • I AM NOT A CITIZEN OF EARTH, I'M A CITIZEN OF HEAVEN,
  • 00:03:32.290 --> 00:03:36.210
  • AND SO I OPERATE ACCORDING TO A WHOLE DIFFERENT PARADIGM,
  • 00:03:36.240 --> 00:03:40.200
  • I AM AN AMBASSADOR FOR KING JESUS,
  • 00:03:40.230 --> 00:03:43.180
  • I'M ON THIS EARTH AS AN AMBASSADOR,
  • 00:03:43.210 --> 00:03:45.180
  • AND EVERY NOW AND AGAIN WE'RE DOING A BIT OF A TUNE UP,
  • 00:03:45.210 --> 00:03:47.120
  • WHAT IS IT TO BE AN AMBASSADOR?
  • 00:03:47.150 --> 00:03:49.040
  • AM I A GOOD AMBASSADOR?
  • 00:03:49.070 --> 00:03:50.070
  • SOME OF US ARE CRINGING, GOING YOU KNOW WHAT,
  • 00:03:50.100 --> 00:03:51.260
  • MAYBE YOU NEED TO REVOKE MY AMBASSADORIAL CREDENTIALS,
  • 00:03:51.290 --> 00:03:57.030
  • AND WE NEED TO HAVE A DO OVER, OKAY?
  • 00:03:57.060 --> 00:04:00.150
  • AND SO I WANNA START AGAIN, SO I'M HERE, LET'S SHARPEN IT,
  • 00:04:00.180 --> 00:04:04.070
  • BECAUSE AS AN AMBASSADOR FROM ANOTHER CITY,
  • 00:04:04.100 --> 00:04:06.290
  • THE CITY OF HEAVEN,
  • 00:04:07.020 --> 00:04:08.290
  • WHAT IS IT WHAT YOU'RE ABLE TO BRING ON EARTH?
  • 00:04:09.020 --> 00:04:11.080
  • WHAT THAT MEANS IS I HAVE ACCESS TO THINGS,
  • 00:04:11.110 --> 00:04:14.070
  • JUST LIKE AMBASSADORS IN OTHER COUNTRIES,
  • 00:04:14.100 --> 00:04:16.140
  • IF YOU'RE IN A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY
  • 00:04:16.170 --> 00:04:19.070
  • AND YOU'RE AN AMBASSADOR FROM A FIRST WORLD COUNTRY
  • 00:04:19.100 --> 00:04:21.020
  • TO A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY,
  • 00:04:21.050 --> 00:04:22.170
  • THEN YOU DON'T REALLY LIVE
  • 00:04:22.200 --> 00:04:24.050
  • ACCORDING TO THE LIVING STANDARDS OF THAT COUNTRY,
  • 00:04:24.080 --> 00:04:26.180
  • YOU LIVE ACCORDING TO THE LIVING STANDARDS
  • 00:04:26.210 --> 00:04:28.100
  • OF THE COUNTRY FROM WHICH YOU CAME,
  • 00:04:28.130 --> 00:04:29.270
  • BECAUSE YOU HAVE ACCESS TO THOSE RESOURCES.
  • 00:04:30.000 --> 00:04:32.210
  • I WANNA REMIND YOU THAT YOU AND I HAVE ACCESS
  • 00:04:32.240 --> 00:04:35.170
  • TO ALL OF THE RESOURCES OF HEAVEN
  • 00:04:35.200 --> 00:04:37.070
  • SO WE DON'T HAVE TO BE LIMITED
  • 00:04:37.100 --> 00:04:39.030
  • BY WHAT'S GOING ON ON THIS EARTH.
  • 00:04:39.060 --> 00:04:40.260
  • THAT MEANS THAT I CAN HAVE PEACE IS CHAOS, WHY?
  • 00:04:40.290 --> 00:04:44.220
  • BECAUSE MY PEACE COMES FROM HEAVEN,
  • 00:04:44.250 --> 00:04:46.100
  • IT COMES FROM ANOTHER PLACE.
  • 00:04:46.130 --> 00:04:47.190
  • NOW, I KNOW THE WORLD MIGHT BE CRAY CRAY,
  • 00:04:47.220 --> 00:04:49.190
  • MAYBE YOUR PART OF THE WORLD IS PERFECT,
  • 00:04:49.220 --> 00:04:51.110
  • BUT WHERE WE'RE FROM, THERE'S A LITTLE BIT OF CRAY CRAY,
  • 00:04:51.140 --> 00:04:54.030
  • BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:04:54.060 --> 00:04:55.060
  • PEOPLE CAN GO WHY ARE YOU SO PEACEFUL?
  • 00:04:55.090 --> 00:04:57.040
  • PEOPLE OFTEN SAY THIS TO ME, CHRIS,
  • 00:04:57.070 --> 00:04:59.160
  • YOU RUN A21, A GLOBAL ANTI-TRAFFICKING ORGANIZATION,
  • 00:04:59.190 --> 00:05:03.020
  • YOU LEAD PROPEL WOMEN ALL AROUND THE WORLD,
  • 00:05:03.050 --> 00:05:05.280
  • YOU'VE GOT SO MUCH GOING ON,
  • 00:05:06.010 --> 00:05:07.130
  • BUT HOW COME YOU DON'T SEEM TO BE FREAKING OUT?
  • 00:05:07.160 --> 00:05:09.220
  • IT'S LIKE BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:05:09.250 --> 00:05:11.000
  • I HAVE ACCESS TO PEACE THAT'S NOT MY OWN,
  • 00:05:11.030 --> 00:05:14.010
  • IT'S ACTUALLY A PEACE THAT CAN ONLY BE FOUND IN CHRIST.
  • 00:05:14.040 --> 00:05:16.240
  • I HAVE ACCESS TO A PEACE THAT COMES FROM HEAVEN.
  • 00:05:16.270 --> 00:05:20.040
  • I CAN HAVE JOY REGARDLESS OF MY CIRCUMSTANCES, WHY?
  • 00:05:20.070 --> 00:05:24.030
  • BECAUSE JOY COMES FROM HEAVEN,
  • 00:05:24.060 --> 00:05:25.270
  • IT'S A FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD,
  • 00:05:26.000 --> 00:05:27.180
  • AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A VICTIM OF YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES,
  • 00:05:27.210 --> 00:05:31.240
  • THROUGH CHRIST YOU CAN TRANSCEND YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES
  • 00:05:31.270 --> 00:05:34.210
  • AND YOU CAN ACCESS FROM HEAVEN JOY, AND BRING IT TO EARTH.
  • 00:05:34.240 --> 00:05:39.290
  • YOU CAN SHOW LOVE IN A HATE-FILLED WORLD, HOW COME?
  • 00:05:40.020 --> 00:05:44.000
  • BECAUSE IT COMES FROM HEAVEN, LOVE COMES FROM HEAVEN.
  • 00:05:44.030 --> 00:05:46.150
  • YOU CAN HAVE PATIENCE IN A WORLD
  • 00:05:46.180 --> 00:05:48.180
  • THAT IS FULL OF INSTANT GRATIFICATION,
  • 00:05:48.210 --> 00:05:50.180
  • YOU GO CAN THAT REALLY HAPPEN?
  • 00:05:50.210 --> 00:05:51.220
  • YES, LET YOUR WILL BE DONE WHERE?
  • 00:05:51.250 --> 00:05:53.140
  • HERE ON EARTH, THAT MEANS I CAN HAVE ACCESS TO THAT,
  • 00:05:53.170 --> 00:05:56.220
  • I CAN DISPLAY KINDNESS IN A WORLD THAT'S REALLY HARSH, WHY?
  • 00:05:56.250 --> 00:06:00.040
  • BECAUSE IT COMES FROM HEAVEN,
  • 00:06:00.070 --> 00:06:01.200
  • IT'S A FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD.
  • 00:06:01.230 --> 00:06:03.050
  • I CAN DISPLAY SELF CONTROL, WHY?
  • 00:06:03.080 --> 00:06:05.280
  • BECAUSE IT COMES FROM HEAVEN,
  • 00:06:06.010 --> 00:06:07.260
  • AND I CAN SHOW IT HERE ON EARTH
  • 00:06:07.290 --> 00:06:09.270
  • IN A WORLD THAT IS OUT OF CONTROL,
  • 00:06:10.000 --> 00:06:11.240
  • I CAN SHOW PEOPLE YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:06:11.270 --> 00:06:13.110
  • THERE'S SOMETHING, I'M OPERATING TO A DIFFERENT KINGDOM,
  • 00:06:13.140 --> 00:06:16.100
  • BECAUSE I'M NOT CONTROLLED BY THE SAME THINGS
  • 00:06:16.130 --> 00:06:20.280
  • AS YOU'RE CONTROLLED BY BECAUSE MY KING IS JESUS,
  • 00:06:21.010 --> 00:06:24.000
  • AND I HAVE THE RESOURCES OF HEAVEN TO BACK ME UP.
  • 00:06:24.030 --> 00:06:27.040
  • I CAN SHOW GOODNESS IN A BAD WORLD,
  • 00:06:27.070 --> 00:06:29.050
  • I CAN BE FAITHFUL IN A FAITHLESS WORLD,
  • 00:06:29.080 --> 00:06:32.000
  • AND I CAN BE GENTLE IN A VERY, VERY HARSH WORLD, WHY?
  • 00:06:32.030 --> 00:06:36.260
  • BECAUSE IT COMES FROM HEAVEN.
  • 00:06:36.290 --> 00:06:38.060
  • YOU GO WHAT IS IT THAT WE'RE BRINGING FROM HEAVEN TO EARTH?
  • 00:06:38.090 --> 00:06:41.250
  • I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT CARS AND THINGS,
  • 00:06:41.280 --> 00:06:45.100
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT
  • 00:06:45.130 --> 00:06:47.250
  • THAT WE'RE ABLE TO BRING TO THIS EARTH.
  • 00:06:47.280 --> 00:06:51.080
  • IN A WORLD THAT DESPERATELY NEEDS
  • 00:06:51.110 --> 00:06:53.260
  • THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD,
  • 00:06:53.290 --> 00:06:55.190
  • LOVE, JOY, PEACE, KINDNESS, GENTLENESS,
  • 00:06:55.220 --> 00:06:58.170
  • LONGSUFFERING, GOODNESS, SELF CONTROL,
  • 00:06:58.200 --> 00:07:00.210
  • THESE THINGS ARE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT,
  • 00:07:00.240 --> 00:07:03.080
  • THEREFORE THEY CAN ONLY COME FROM THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:07:03.110 --> 00:07:04.280
  • WE'RE TRYING TO MANUFACTURE IT IN THE NATURAL,
  • 00:07:05.010 --> 00:07:07.200
  • AND WE'RE WONDERING WHY IT'S NOT WORKING OUT,
  • 00:07:07.230 --> 00:07:09.230
  • BECAUSE WE WERE NEVER DESIGNED TO DO THAT,
  • 00:07:09.260 --> 00:07:11.110
  • YOU CANNOT SUSTAIN IT NATURALLY,
  • 00:07:11.140 --> 00:07:12.290
  • THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NOT ONE,
  • 00:07:13.020 --> 00:07:14.090
  • NONE OF US ARE GOOD ENOUGH
  • 00:07:14.120 --> 00:07:15.060
  • TO BE ABLE TO SUSTAIN IT NATURALLY,
  • 00:07:15.090 --> 00:07:17.010
  • BUT THROUGH CHRIST AND IN CHRIST, WE ARE ABLE TO DO THAT.
  • 00:07:17.040 --> 00:07:20.000
  • THE SAME SPIRIT THAT RAISED CHRIST FROM THE DEAD
  • 00:07:20.030 --> 00:07:21.280
  • LIVES ON THE INSIDE OF US, AND THEREFORE,
  • 00:07:22.010 --> 00:07:24.140
  • STREAMS OF LIVING WATER CAN FLOW OUT OF US
  • 00:07:24.170 --> 00:07:27.170
  • AND BRING LIFE TO THE WORLD AROUND US.
  • 00:07:27.200 --> 00:07:29.190
  • THAT'S WHY WE PRAY YOUR KINGDOM COME,
  • 00:07:29.220 --> 00:07:31.240
  • YOUR WILL BE DONE, WHERE?
  • 00:07:31.270 --> 00:07:33.060
  • HERE ON EARTH, TOO MANY CHRISTIANS HAVE SAID MAN,
  • 00:07:33.090 --> 00:07:36.020
  • GET ME OUT OF EARTH, I WANNA GO TO HEAVEN,
  • 00:07:36.050 --> 00:07:37.260
  • AND GOD SAYS IF I WANTED YOU, I'D TAKE YOU.
  • 00:07:37.290 --> 00:07:39.170
  • I'VE SENT YOU THERE 'CAUSE I NEED YOU TO DO SOMETHING THERE.
  • 00:07:39.200 --> 00:07:42.060
  • WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING HERE ON EARTH, HERE ON EARTH.
  • 00:07:42.090 --> 00:07:46.030
  • HEAVEN'S NOT READY FOR YOU YET, SWEETHEART.
  • 00:07:46.060 --> 00:07:50.170
  • PAUL STARTED IN VERSE 17 IN THIS TEXT,
  • 00:07:50.200 --> 00:07:53.270
  • HE SAID MAKE SURE THAT YOU IMITATE THOSE
  • 00:07:54.000 --> 00:07:56.080
  • THAT FOLLOW JESUS CHRIST, VERY POWERFUL TEXT, HE SAID,
  • 00:07:56.110 --> 00:07:59.050
  • "BROTHERS JOIN IN IMITATING ME,
  • 00:07:59.080 --> 00:08:02.020
  • "AND KEEP YOUR EYES ON THOSE WHO WALK
  • 00:08:02.050 --> 00:08:06.010
  • "ACCORDING TO THE EXAMPLE YOU HAVE IN US.
  • 00:08:06.040 --> 00:08:09.140
  • "FOR MANY," IT'S VERY SAD WHAT HE SAYS HERE,
  • 00:08:09.170 --> 00:08:12.100
  • "FOR MANY OF WHOM I HAVE OFTEN TOLD YOU
  • 00:08:12.130 --> 00:08:16.130
  • "AND NOW TELL YOU EVEN WITH TEARS,
  • 00:08:16.160 --> 00:08:19.020
  • "WALK AS ENEMIES OF THE CROSS OF CHRIST."
  • 00:08:19.050 --> 00:08:22.280
  • SUCH A POWERFUL PORTION OF SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:08:23.010 --> 00:08:25.060
  • SO HE'S JUST FINISHED SAYING HEY, PRESS ON, PRESS ON,
  • 00:08:25.090 --> 00:08:28.090
  • THIS ONE THING I DO, FORGETTING THOSE THINGS BEHIND,
  • 00:08:28.120 --> 00:08:31.050
  • I PRESS ON TO WHAT LIES AHEAD.
  • 00:08:31.080 --> 00:08:34.030
  • STRAIGHT AFTER THAT, HE SAYS BE CAREFUL,
  • 00:08:34.060 --> 00:08:37.120
  • BE CAREFUL WHO YOU'RE IMITATING.
  • 00:08:37.150 --> 00:08:39.080
  • AS YOU'RE PRESSING ON, AS YOU'RE BRINGING HEAVEN TO EARTH,
  • 00:08:39.110 --> 00:08:42.180
  • AS CITIZENS OF HEAVEN, I NEED YOU TO REMEMBER,
  • 00:08:42.210 --> 00:08:46.050
  • WHO YOU IMITATE IS IMPORTANT.
  • 00:08:46.080 --> 00:08:49.010
  • AND I'M WONDERING IF HE'S TALKING THROUGH THE AGES
  • 00:08:49.040 --> 00:08:51.160
  • TO OUR SOCIAL MEDIA AGE.
  • 00:08:51.190 --> 00:08:53.210
  • BECAUSE IN OUR GENERATION OF FOLLOWS AND LIKES,
  • 00:08:53.240 --> 00:08:57.020
  • WE JUST FOLLOW ANYONE WITHOUT EVEN THINKING
  • 00:08:57.050 --> 00:08:59.010
  • ABOUT WHERE ARE THEY ACTUALLY GOING?
  • 00:08:59.040 --> 00:09:01.230
  • WHERE ARE THE PEOPLE GOING THAT YOU FOLLOW?
  • 00:09:01.260 --> 00:09:04.240
  • BECAUSE YOU MIGHT NOT WANNA BE GOING
  • 00:09:04.270 --> 00:09:06.040
  • WHERE THEY'RE GONNA END UP.
  • 00:09:06.070 --> 00:09:08.170
  • AND SOME OF US, WE HAVEN'T EVEN BEEN THINKING ABOUT IT,
  • 00:09:08.200 --> 00:09:10.200
  • ARE YOU IMITATING THOSE THAT ARE IMITATING CHRIST?
  • 00:09:10.230 --> 00:09:14.070
  • I SAY THAT TO PEOPLE, A WHOLE LOT OF PEOPLE SAY TO ME,
  • 00:09:14.100 --> 00:09:16.270
  • YOU KNOW, ON YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA,
  • 00:09:17.000 --> 00:09:17.250
  • WHY DON'T YOU TALK OUT ABOUT THIS,
  • 00:09:17.280 --> 00:09:19.020
  • AND WHY DON'T YOU DO THIS, AND WHY?
  • 00:09:19.050 --> 00:09:20.280
  • AND I GO LOOK, LOOK,
  • 00:09:21.010 --> 00:09:22.050
  • I FEEL ENOUGH RESPONSIBILITY WITH ANYBODY FOLLOWING ME,
  • 00:09:22.080 --> 00:09:24.270
  • SO I JUST PRETTY MUCH OUT THERE,
  • 00:09:25.000 --> 00:09:27.170
  • TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY, WANT TO IMITATE CHRIST.
  • 00:09:27.200 --> 00:09:30.000
  • AND AS LONG AS I'M IMITATING CHRIST,
  • 00:09:30.030 --> 00:09:32.080
  • THEN PEOPLE CAN FOLLOW ME.
  • 00:09:32.110 --> 00:09:33.270
  • BUT THE MINUTE I STOP DOING THAT, PLEASE STOP FOLLOWING ME,
  • 00:09:34.000 --> 00:09:36.140
  • PLEASE DON'T DO THAT,
  • 00:09:36.170 --> 00:09:37.270
  • I PLAN NEVER TO GET OFF TRACK, BY THE GRACE OF GOD,
  • 00:09:38.000 --> 00:09:41.110
  • BUT THE TRUTH IS THINK ABOUT WHO YOU'RE FOLLOWING,
  • 00:09:41.140 --> 00:09:44.130
  • THINK ABOUT WHO YOU'RE IMITATING,
  • 00:09:44.160 --> 00:09:46.120
  • BECAUSE YOU BECOME LIKE THE PEOPLE THAT YOU HANG OUT WITH,
  • 00:09:46.150 --> 00:09:48.230
  • YOU BECOME LIKE THE PEOPLE THAT YOU FOLLOW.
  • 00:09:48.260 --> 00:09:50.200
  • AND SO I THINK WE NEED TO SHOW A LOT MORE DISCERNMENT
  • 00:09:50.230 --> 00:09:53.220
  • IN OUR GENERATION ABOUT WHO WE ARE FOLLOWING.
  • 00:09:53.250 --> 00:09:56.280
  • I'M VERY CONSCIOUS OF THAT,
  • 00:09:57.010 --> 00:09:58.070
  • I KNOW MY DAUGHTERS ARE LOOKING TO ME,
  • 00:09:58.100 --> 00:09:59.240
  • AND SO I EXPLAIN TO THEM WHY I FOLLOW CERTAIN PEOPLE
  • 00:09:59.270 --> 00:10:02.040
  • AND WHY I DON'T FOLLOW OTHER PEOPLE,
  • 00:10:02.070 --> 00:10:03.100
  • AND I GO SOME, THEY'RE GOOD PEOPLE,
  • 00:10:03.130 --> 00:10:04.200
  • AND I MIGHT EVEN LIKE THEM, THEY MIGHT EVEN MAKE ME LAUGH,
  • 00:10:04.230 --> 00:10:07.170
  • BUT ULTIMATELY I DON'T WANNA GO
  • 00:10:07.200 --> 00:10:09.260
  • IN THE DIRECTION THAT THEY'RE GOING.
  • 00:10:09.290 --> 00:10:11.100
  • SO IT'S NOT ENOUGH THAT THEY'RE JUST REALLY NICE,
  • 00:10:11.130 --> 00:10:15.140
  • IT'S LIKE ULTIMATELY IN TERMS OF MY ETERNAL GOOD,
  • 00:10:15.170 --> 00:10:19.280
  • IS THIS ADDING TO MY LIFE OR TAKING AWAY FROM IT?
  • 00:10:20.010 --> 00:10:23.170
  • SO BE CAREFUL WHO YOU FOLLOW, DON'T LISTEN TO EVERYONE.
  • 00:10:23.200 --> 00:10:27.010
  • JUST 'CAUSE EVERYONE THINKS THEY'RE A VOICE,
  • 00:10:27.040 --> 00:10:28.130
  • I LOVE ALL THE SELF PROFESSED PROPHETS OUT THERE,
  • 00:10:28.160 --> 00:10:30.280
  • THAT'S HOW YOU KNOW SOMEONE'S NOT,
  • 00:10:31.010 --> 00:10:32.070
  • WHEN THEY'RE SUDDENLY TELLING YOU THAT THEY ARE,
  • 00:10:32.100 --> 00:10:33.190
  • I'M LIKE REALLY, HONEY?
  • 00:10:33.220 --> 00:10:34.270
  • A LITTLE BIT LIKE MAGGIE THATCHER ONCE SAID,
  • 00:10:35.000 --> 00:10:36.170
  • IF YOU NEED TO TELL ANYONE YOU'RE A WOMAN,
  • 00:10:36.200 --> 00:10:38.090
  • YOU'RE PROBABLY NOT.
  • 00:10:38.120 --> 00:10:39.110
  • OR IF YOU NEED TO TELL ANYONE YOU'RE A LADY,
  • 00:10:39.140 --> 00:10:41.280
  • YOU'RE PROBABLY NOT.
  • 00:10:42.010 --> 00:10:43.000
  • A LOT OF US, YOU KNOW, AT THE END OF THE DAY,
  • 00:10:43.030 --> 00:10:45.250
  • ARE THEY FOLLOWING CHRIST?
  • 00:10:45.280 --> 00:10:48.060

  • THE TENSION IS REALLY HARD RIGHT IN THE CENTER,
  • 00:13:34.240 --> 00:13:36.230
  • THERE'S THE LEGALISTS THAT ARE JUST LIKE
  • 00:13:36.260 --> 00:13:38.080
  • YOU'VE GOTTA ADD ALL OF THIS TO YOUR SALVATION,
  • 00:13:38.110 --> 00:13:40.040
  • AND THEN WE'VE GOT THE ANTINOMIANISTS
  • 00:13:40.070 --> 00:13:42.260
  • THAT ARE JUST LIKE NO, IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER,
  • 00:13:42.290 --> 00:13:44.260
  • GOD LOVES EVERYONE, HE DIED FOR EVERYONE,
  • 00:13:44.290 --> 00:13:46.260
  • NOTHING REALLY MATTERS, JUST LIVE HOW YOU WANNA LIVE,
  • 00:13:46.290 --> 00:13:48.230
  • DO WHAT YOU WANNA DO.
  • 00:13:48.260 --> 00:13:50.290
  • AND THEN BOTH EXTREMES ARE DANGEROUS,
  • 00:13:51.020 --> 00:13:53.180
  • AND PAUL'S SAYING NO, NO, NO,
  • 00:13:53.210 --> 00:13:55.080
  • AND THE CHRISTIANS IN PHILIPPI,
  • 00:13:55.110 --> 00:13:56.220
  • THEY WERE FEELING THAT PRESSURE, JUST LIKE MANY OF US DO.
  • 00:13:56.250 --> 00:13:59.240
  • WE FEEL THAT PRESSURE IN THE WORLD IN WHICH WE LIVE,
  • 00:13:59.270 --> 00:14:02.230
  • THERE'S A PRESSURE TO NOT STRIVE FOR CHRIST'S LIKENESS,
  • 00:14:02.260 --> 00:14:06.260
  • JUST LIKE IT DOESN'T MATTER, JUST LIVE HOW YOU WANT,
  • 00:14:06.290 --> 00:14:09.130
  • BUT THE FACT IS AS CITIZENS OF HEAVEN,
  • 00:14:09.160 --> 00:14:11.240
  • THEN WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:14:11.270 --> 00:14:13.290
  • TO LIVE ACCORDING TO THE PLACE THAT WHICH WE'VE COME FROM,
  • 00:14:14.020 --> 00:14:17.190
  • THERE IS A RULE OF CONDUCT THAT SUGGESTS
  • 00:14:17.220 --> 00:14:21.270
  • THAT YOU COME FROM ANOTHER PLACE,
  • 00:14:22.000 --> 00:14:23.240
  • THAT GOD SAYS HEY, MY AMBASSADORS,
  • 00:14:23.270 --> 00:14:25.140
  • THIS IS WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE, THIS IS WHAT THEY ACT LIKE,
  • 00:14:25.170 --> 00:14:27.150
  • I'VE WRITTEN A BOOK TO GIVE YOU SOME GUIDANCE,
  • 00:14:27.180 --> 00:14:29.050
  • THIS IS HOW YOU LIVE, THIS IS HOW YOU ACT,
  • 00:14:29.080 --> 00:14:31.200
  • THIS IS WHAT YOUR PRIORITIES ARE LIKE,
  • 00:14:31.230 --> 00:14:33.200
  • AND YOU GO OH, OKAY, I'M NOT A CITIZEN OF DARKNESS ANYMORE,
  • 00:14:33.230 --> 00:14:37.040
  • I'M A CITIZEN OF LIGHT, SO I'VE GOTTA LEARN ALL OVER AGAIN,
  • 00:14:37.070 --> 00:14:39.240
  • OH, THIS IS HOW YOU LIVE, AND WHY DO I LIVE LIKE THIS?
  • 00:14:39.270 --> 00:14:43.200
  • 'CAUSE IT'S FOR MY GOOD, BECAUSE GOD IS GOOD,
  • 00:14:43.230 --> 00:14:45.230
  • AND ANYTHING GOD ASKS ME TO DO IS FOR MY GOOD
  • 00:14:45.260 --> 00:14:48.250
  • AND FOR HIS GLORY, THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT.
  • 00:14:48.280 --> 00:14:55.070
  • WE KEEP PRESSING ON BECAUSE WE'RE A CITIZEN OF HEAVEN,
  • 00:14:55.100 --> 00:14:59.150
  • BECAUSE WE'RE CITIZENS OF HEAVEN,
  • 00:14:59.180 --> 00:15:01.220
  • AND OUR FUTURE HOPE IS THAT JESUS CHRIST IS COMING BACK.
  • 00:15:01.250 --> 00:15:05.100
  • WE ARE LIVING BETWEEN THE TWO ADVENTS OF CHRIST,
  • 00:15:05.130 --> 00:15:09.010
  • JESUS CHRIST CAME, ROSE AGAIN FROM THE DEAD, ASCENDED,
  • 00:15:09.040 --> 00:15:12.160
  • SITS AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER, AND GUESS WHAT?
  • 00:15:12.190 --> 00:15:14.200
  • THAT SKY IS GONNA SCROLL BACK, AND IT'S GONNA PART,
  • 00:15:14.230 --> 00:15:18.130
  • AND HE IS COMING BACK AGAIN,
  • 00:15:18.160 --> 00:15:20.090
  • THAT'S THE HOPE THAT WE BRING TO THE WORLD,
  • 00:15:20.120 --> 00:15:22.150
  • THAT JESUS CHRIST, IF YOU WERE JUST LOOKING AT THIS WORLD
  • 00:15:22.180 --> 00:15:25.050
  • IN ITS CURRENT MESS, YOU'D HAVE NO HOPE.
  • 00:15:25.080 --> 00:15:27.080
  • BUT THE HOPE THAT WE HAVE IS THAT JESUS IS COMING BACK,
  • 00:15:27.110 --> 00:15:30.130
  • THAT IS GOOD NEWS FOR A LOST AND A BROKEN WORLD,
  • 00:15:30.160 --> 00:15:34.010
  • THAT IS GOOD NEWS.
  • 00:15:34.040 --> 00:15:37.150
  • SO LET ME TELL YOU,
  • 00:15:37.180 --> 00:15:39.280
  • BECAUSE OF THAT, OUR BEHAVIOR SHOULD BE DIFFERENT,
  • 00:15:40.010 --> 00:15:43.100
  • OUR PRIORITIES SHOULD BE DIFFERENT,
  • 00:15:43.130 --> 00:15:45.150
  • WE SHOULD BE LIVING AS PEOPLE WITH AN ETERNAL PERSPECTIVE,
  • 00:15:45.180 --> 00:15:48.170
  • SO THAT CHANGES HOW WE LIVE.
  • 00:15:48.200 --> 00:15:51.050
  • HOW WE PASS THROUGH THIS WORLD MATTERS.
  • 00:15:51.080 --> 00:15:55.170
  • WE ARE CALLED TO BE FRUITFUL,
  • 00:15:55.200 --> 00:15:57.160
  • THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT IT IS TO OUR FATHER'S GLORY
  • 00:15:57.190 --> 00:15:59.270
  • THAT WE BEAR MUCH FRUIT.
  • 00:16:00.020 --> 00:16:02.290
  • WE'RE CALLED TO BE FRUITFUL
  • 00:16:03.020 --> 00:16:04.210
  • TO THE KINGDOM OF GOD, IT MATTERS,
  • 00:16:04.240 --> 00:16:07.120
  • THERE IS A SPIRIT IN THE WORLD
  • 00:16:07.150 --> 00:16:10.050
  • THAT JUST SAYS IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW YOU LIVE,
  • 00:16:10.080 --> 00:16:12.100
  • AND I'M HERE TO TELL YOU IT DOES MATTER,
  • 00:16:12.130 --> 00:16:14.230
  • IT MATTERS TO OUR WITNESS, IT MATTERS TO OUR ASSIGNMENT,
  • 00:16:14.260 --> 00:16:19.010
  • IT MATTERS TO OUR FRUITFULNESS
  • 00:16:19.040 --> 00:16:21.080
  • AND WHAT GOD HAS CALLED US TO DO ON THIS EARTH, IT MATTERS.
  • 00:16:21.110 --> 00:16:25.110
  • WE ARE PILGRIMS, WE ARE ALIENS, WE ARE STRANGERS.
  • 00:16:25.140 --> 00:16:29.210
  • I'M HERE TO REMIND YOU, 1 PETER 2:9-12 SAYS,
  • 00:16:29.240 --> 00:16:33.070
  • "BUT YOU ARE A CHOSEN RACE, A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD,
  • 00:16:33.100 --> 00:16:38.020
  • "A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR HIS OWN POSSESSION,
  • 00:16:38.050 --> 00:16:42.170
  • "THAT YOU MAY," THERE'S A REASON,
  • 00:16:42.200 --> 00:16:45.020
  • "THAT YOU MAY PROCLAIM THE EXCELLENCIES OF HIM
  • 00:16:45.050 --> 00:16:48.160
  • "WHO CALLED YOU OUT OF DARKNESS INTO HIS MARVELOUS LIGHT.
  • 00:16:48.190 --> 00:16:52.130
  • "ONCE YOU WERE NOT A PEOPLE, BUT NOW YOU ARE GOD'S PEOPLE,
  • 00:16:52.160 --> 00:16:55.180
  • "ONCE YOU HAVE NO RECEIVED MERCY,
  • 00:16:55.210 --> 00:16:57.130
  • "BUT NOW YOU HAVE RECEIVED MERCY.
  • 00:16:57.160 --> 00:17:00.290
  • "BELOVED, I URGE YOU AS SOJOURNERS AND EXILES
  • 00:17:01.020 --> 00:17:05.170
  • "TO ABSTAIN FROM THE PASSIONS OF THE FLESH,
  • 00:17:05.200 --> 00:17:09.070
  • "WHICH WAGE WAR AGAINST YOUR SOUL.
  • 00:17:09.100 --> 00:17:12.260
  • "KEEP YOUR CONDUCT AMONG GENTILES HONORABLE,
  • 00:17:12.290 --> 00:17:16.150
  • "SO THAT WHEN THEY SPEAK AGAINST YOU AS EVILDOERS,
  • 00:17:16.180 --> 00:17:19.140
  • "THEY MAY SEE YOUR GOOD DEEDS
  • 00:17:19.170 --> 00:17:21.100
  • "AND GLORIFY GOD ON THE DAY OF VISITATION."
  • 00:17:21.130 --> 00:17:25.140
  • HOW WE LIVE ON THIS EARTH MATTERS FOR THE GLORY OF GOD,
  • 00:17:25.170 --> 00:17:31.080
  • IT MATTERS FOR THE GLORY OF GOD.
  • 00:17:31.110 --> 00:17:33.250
  • WE EAGERLY AWAIT OUR COMING SAVIOR, WE EAGERLY AWAIT HIM,
  • 00:17:33.280 --> 00:17:38.270
  • OUR HOPE IS NOT IN THE COMING OF THE LORD,
  • 00:17:39.000 --> 00:17:42.000
  • OUR HOPE IS IN THE LORD THAT IS COMING,
  • 00:17:42.030 --> 00:17:44.150
  • OUR HOPE IS IN THE LORD THAT IS COMING,
  • 00:17:44.180 --> 00:17:46.230
  • JESUS IS COMING, AND DO YOU WAIT WITH ANTICIPATION?
  • 00:17:46.260 --> 00:17:49.250
  • I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S JUST THAT I'M GETTING OLDER,
  • 00:17:49.280 --> 00:17:51.210
  • BUT I'M GETTING PUMPED UP, YOU KNOW, I SEE MY DAUGHTERS,
  • 00:17:51.240 --> 00:17:54.070
  • AND OFTENTIMES IF NICK'S COMING HOME LATE,
  • 00:17:54.100 --> 00:17:56.160
  • MOMMY, WHEN'S DADDY COMING HOME?
  • 00:17:56.190 --> 00:17:58.120
  • MOMMY, WHEN'S DADDY COMING HOME?
  • 00:17:58.150 --> 00:18:00.060
  • ONE SIGN OF INTIMACY IS THAT YOU CAN'T WAIT
  • 00:18:00.090 --> 00:18:03.220
  • TO SEE THE FACE OF THE PERSON THAT IS COMING,
  • 00:18:03.250 --> 00:18:06.270
  • AND I WONDER, AS THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:18:07.000 --> 00:18:09.120
  • ARE WE INTIMATE ENOUGH WITH OUR SAVIOR
  • 00:18:09.150 --> 00:18:11.120
  • THAT WE CANNOT WAIT, WHEN'S DADDY COMING HOME,
  • 00:18:11.150 --> 00:18:13.290
  • WHEN'S JESUS COMING HOME, WHEN IS HE COMING TO GET US?
  • 00:18:14.020 --> 00:18:17.040
  • WHERE IS THE SENSE OF EXPECTATION THAT COMES AND FLOWS
  • 00:18:17.070 --> 00:18:21.050
  • OUT OF OUR INTIMACY WITH JESUS?
  • 00:18:21.080 --> 00:18:26.030
  • ARE WE EAGERLY AWAITING HIM,
  • 00:18:26.060 --> 00:18:29.040
  • OR ARE WE JUST SO BORED STUPID WE'RE GONNA MISS HIM?
  • 00:18:29.070 --> 00:18:33.010
  • I WONDER, JUST ROLL OUR EYES, OH YEAH, HO HUM,
  • 00:18:33.040 --> 00:18:36.240
  • WHO CARES ABOUT THIS CHRISTIANITY?
  • 00:18:36.270 --> 00:18:38.160
  • BUT IF YOU REMEMBER YOU'RE A CITIZEN OF HEAVEN,
  • 00:18:38.190 --> 00:18:42.010
  • MY GIRLS, WHEN'S DADDY COMING HOME,
  • 00:18:42.040 --> 00:18:43.180
  • WHEN'S DADDY COMING HOME, WHEN'S DADDY COMING HOME?
  • 00:18:43.210 --> 00:18:46.260
  • AND YOU GO I KNOW I LIVE ON THIS EARTH,
  • 00:18:46.290 --> 00:18:49.070
  • BUT I'M A CITIZEN OF HEAVEN AND MY KING'S COMING BACK,
  • 00:18:49.100 --> 00:18:52.020
  • MY KING'S COMING BACK TO GET,
  • 00:18:52.050 --> 00:18:53.100
  • SO THAT ACTUALLY MEANS IT MATTERS HOW I LIVE TODAY,
  • 00:18:53.130 --> 00:18:56.100
  • HOW I TALK TODAY, WHAT I DO TODAY, IT MATTERS,
  • 00:18:56.130 --> 00:18:59.180
  • BECAUSE MY KING'S COMING BACK.
  • 00:18:59.210 --> 00:19:01.190
  • NOW, REMEMBER, I'M NOT SAYING BE SO HEAVENLY MINDED
  • 00:19:01.220 --> 00:19:05.000
  • THAT YOU'RE NO EARTHLY GOOD.
  • 00:19:05.030 --> 00:19:07.090
  • WE'RE A GENERATION OF CHRISTIANS THAT DID THAT,
  • 00:19:07.120 --> 00:19:09.070
  • JUST ADJUDICATED, JUST SAID BLOW THE WHOLE THING UP,
  • 00:19:09.100 --> 00:19:12.160
  • I'M LIKE NO, HONEY, IT'S NOT THE LATE, GREAT PLANET EARTH,
  • 00:19:12.190 --> 00:19:14.290
  • YOU WERE TAUGHT WRONG,
  • 00:19:15.020 --> 00:19:16.200
  • GOD'S NOT BLOWING IT UP AND STARTING ALL OVER AGAIN,
  • 00:19:16.230 --> 00:19:19.040
  • HE'S GONNA REDEEM IT AND WE'RE GONNA HAVE A NEW HEAVEN
  • 00:19:19.070 --> 00:19:20.270
  • AND WE'RE GONNA HAVE A NEW EARTH,
  • 00:19:21.000 --> 00:19:22.090
  • WE'VE GOTTA BRING HEAVEN TO EARTH.
  • 00:19:22.120 --> 00:19:24.260
  • BASICALLY WHAT THIS IS,
  • 00:19:24.290 --> 00:19:26.180
  • THIS MUST MAKE US MORE INTENTIONAL
  • 00:19:26.210 --> 00:19:28.160
  • AND URGENT ABOUT OUR TIME ON EARTH.
  • 00:19:28.190 --> 00:19:30.250
  • TOO MANY CHRISTIANS HAVE USED THAT AS AN EXCUSE,
  • 00:19:30.280 --> 00:19:33.030
  • I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE EARTH,
  • 00:19:33.060 --> 00:19:34.000
  • I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT,
  • 00:19:34.030 --> 00:19:35.020
  • I DON'T CARE ABOUT SOCIAL JUSTICE,
  • 00:19:35.050 --> 00:19:36.190
  • I DON'T CARE ABOUT PEOPLE.
  • 00:19:36.220 --> 00:19:37.240
  • I'M GOING HOW CAN YOU READ THE BIBLE AND SAY THAT?
  • 00:19:37.270 --> 00:19:40.280
  • OUR LONGING FOR HEAVEN MAKES US MORE DESPERATE
  • 00:19:41.010 --> 00:19:43.240
  • TO DO GREAT THINGS HERE ON EARTH
  • 00:19:43.270 --> 00:19:45.070
  • AND TO BRING HEAVEN TO EARTH.
  • 00:19:45.100 --> 00:19:47.040
  • I'VE GOT ONE EYE LOOKING EAST,
  • 00:19:47.070 --> 00:19:48.200
  • AND MY HANDS RIGHT HERE IN THE SOIL OF THIS EARTH,
  • 00:19:48.230 --> 00:19:51.160
  • TRYING TO DO GOOD EVERY DAY THAT I'M HERE,
  • 00:19:51.190 --> 00:19:54.020
  • TRYING TO BRING HEAVEN TO EARTH.
  • 00:19:54.050 --> 00:19:55.130
  • THE MORE OUR HEART IS INVESTED IN HEAVEN,
  • 00:19:55.160 --> 00:19:58.050
  • THE MORE USEFUL WE SHOULD BE ON EARTH.
  • 00:19:58.080 --> 00:20:00.140
  • THE MORE USEFUL WE SHOULD BE FOR THE GLORY OF GOD,
  • 00:20:00.170 --> 00:20:03.080
  • FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:20:03.110 --> 00:20:05.120
  • I'M NOT WAITING TO ESCAPE, THIS IS NOT AN ESCAPIST THEOLOGY,
  • 00:20:05.150 --> 00:20:09.020
  • THIS IS MAKING ME FAR MORE FRUITFUL WHILE I'M HERE.
  • 00:20:09.050 --> 00:20:13.230
  • I LOVE IT THAT PAUL SAYS, YOU KNOW WHAT,
  • 00:20:13.260 --> 00:20:15.280
  • OUR BODIES ARE GONNA GET AN UPGRADE,
  • 00:20:16.010 --> 00:20:17.270
  • THAT'S THE CHRISTINE VERSION, BETTER THAN BOTOX,
  • 00:20:18.000 --> 00:20:21.000
  • BETTER THAN A FACELIFT,
  • 00:20:21.030 --> 00:20:22.180
  • BETTER THAN ANY MORE WORK ON THE TREADMILL,
  • 00:20:22.210 --> 00:20:25.070
  • MAN, THIS IS THING IS GOING TO GET AN UPGRADE.
  • 00:20:25.100 --> 00:20:28.230
  • I'M GONNA HAVE A SUPERNATURAL BODY,
  • 00:20:28.260 --> 00:20:30.200
  • AND IT'S GOING TO BE AWESOME.
  • 00:20:30.230 --> 00:20:32.280
  • OUR BODIES ARE GOING TO BE IMMORTAL,
  • 00:20:33.010 --> 00:20:36.240
  • OUR BODIES ARE GONNA LAST
  • 00:20:36.270 --> 00:20:38.080
  • THROUGHOUT ALL OF TIME, HOW AWESOME?
  • 00:20:38.110 --> 00:20:41.010
  • THERE'LL BE NO MORE SICKNESS, NO MORE CRYING,
  • 00:20:41.040 --> 00:20:43.060
  • NO MORE DISEASE, NO MORE DEATH, NO MORE DECAY,
  • 00:20:43.090 --> 00:20:46.020
  • HOW AWESOME IS ALL OF THAT?
  • 00:20:46.050 --> 00:20:49.250
  • HOW AWESOME IS ALL OF THAT?
  • 00:20:49.280 --> 00:20:54.170
  • MAN, HOW COULD YOU NOT GET EXCITED?
  • 00:20:54.200 --> 00:20:56.180
  • HOW COULD YOU NOT WANNA TELL THE WORLD THIS GOOD NEWS?
  • 00:20:56.210 --> 00:20:59.000
  • WELL, PEOPLE ARE JUST GETTING DRUNK AND STONED
  • 00:20:59.030 --> 00:21:03.280
  • AND GOING ON NETFLIX BINGES AND SWIPING RIGHT
  • 00:21:04.010 --> 00:21:06.200
  • AND JUMPING INTO BED NOT BECAUSE THEY'RE BAD PEOPLE,
  • 00:21:06.230 --> 00:21:08.290
  • BUT BECAUSE THEY'RE LOOKING FOR SOME MEANING,
  • 00:21:09.020 --> 00:21:10.260
  • AND BECAUSE THEY'RE FINDING NO MEANING,
  • 00:21:10.290 --> 00:21:12.070
  • THEY'RE LIKE MAN, I'M OUT OF HERE,
  • 00:21:12.100 --> 00:21:13.190
  • I'M GONNA NUMB MY REALITY,
  • 00:21:13.220 --> 00:21:15.020
  • OR I'M JUST GOING TO TRY TO FEEL GOOD FOR A MOMENT,
  • 00:21:15.050 --> 00:21:18.050
  • BUT WE'RE SAYING NO, NO, NO, WE'VE GOT ETERNAL GOOD NEWS.
  • 00:21:18.080 --> 00:21:21.180
  • THERE IS A HEAVEN, THERE IS A HELL,
  • 00:21:21.210 --> 00:21:23.170
  • THAT SKY'S GONNA SPLIT, JESUS IS COMING BACK,
  • 00:21:23.200 --> 00:21:25.180
  • THERE'S GONNA BE A NEW HEAVEN, THERE'S GONNA BE A NEW EARTH,
  • 00:21:25.210 --> 00:21:28.140
  • WE ARE GONNA LIVE FOREVER, IT'S GOOD NEWS, IT'S GOOD NEWS.
  • 00:21:28.170 --> 00:21:35.090
  • THIS IS GOOD NEWS.
  • 00:21:35.120 --> 00:21:39.050
  • IF WE STAY ETERNALLY MINDED,
  • 00:21:39.080 --> 00:21:40.230
  • SO PAUL SAYS DON'T QUIT, KEEP PRESSING,
  • 00:21:40.260 --> 00:21:45.000
  • STAND FIRM, IF JESUS TARRIES,
  • 00:21:45.030 --> 00:21:48.040
  • DON'T DESERT YOUR POST AS AN AMBASSADOR,
  • 00:21:48.070 --> 00:21:50.200
  • I KNOW IT'S GONNA GET TOUGH DOWN HERE,
  • 00:21:50.230 --> 00:21:51.260
  • AND IT IS, OH YES, THERE'S TRIALS, THERE'S TRIBULATION,
  • 00:21:51.290 --> 00:21:54.290
  • THERE'S WARS, THERE'S FAMINE, THERE'S POLITICAL INSTABILITY,
  • 00:21:55.020 --> 00:21:57.160
  • THERE'S INJUSTICE, THERE'S DISEASE, THERE'S TERROR,
  • 00:21:57.190 --> 00:22:00.190
  • THERE'S CRIME, THERE'S VIOLENCE, DON'T LEAVE YOUR POST.
  • 00:22:00.220 --> 00:22:04.150
  • YOU'RE AMBASSADORS, I'VE GIVEN YOU ALL OF MY PROTECTION,
  • 00:22:04.180 --> 00:22:08.140
  • I'VE GIVEN YOU ALL OF MY RESOURCES,
  • 00:22:08.170 --> 00:22:10.060
  • I KNOW, I KNOW IT'S HARD, BUT IF YOU STAY IN ME,
  • 00:22:10.090 --> 00:22:16.090
  • YOU'RE GONNA BE ABLE TO NOT ONLY GET THROUGH THIS,
  • 00:22:16.120 --> 00:22:18.070
  • YOU'RE GONNA BE ABLE TO BRING HEAVEN TO EARTH
  • 00:22:18.100 --> 00:22:19.280
  • IN THE MIDST OF IT.
  • 00:22:20.010 --> 00:22:21.270
  • IN LIGHT OF OUR PRESENT GLORIOUS POSITION
  • 00:22:22.000 --> 00:22:24.000
  • AS CITIZENS OF HEAVEN,
  • 00:22:24.030 --> 00:22:25.170
  • AND THE FACT THAT JESUS IS COMING BACK,
  • 00:22:25.200 --> 00:22:27.170
  • PAUL SAYS RESIST TEMPTATION, KEEP PURSUING HOLINESS,
  • 00:22:27.200 --> 00:22:31.010
  • KEEP PRESSING ON INTO CHRIST'S LIKENESS,
  • 00:22:31.040 --> 00:22:34.080
  • DON'T GIVE UP, STAND AGAINST EVERY ATTACK OF SIN AND SATAN,
  • 00:22:34.110 --> 00:22:39.050
  • STAND IN SPITE OF EVERY BAD EXAMPLE
  • 00:22:39.080 --> 00:22:42.140
  • FROM THOSE WHO PROFESS TO BE CHRIST FOLLOWERS.
  • 00:22:42.170 --> 00:22:45.010
  • WE STAND AGAINST EVERY VOICE THAT IS CALLING US TO QUIT,
  • 00:22:45.040 --> 00:22:48.160
  • WE STAND LIKE A GOOD SOLDIER,
  • 00:22:48.190 --> 00:22:51.040
  • WE STAND OUR GROUND IN THESE DARK DAYS, IN THESE HARD DAYS,
  • 00:22:51.070 --> 00:22:55.060
  • IN THESE TURBULENT TIMES, IN THESE CHAOTIC TIMES,
  • 00:22:55.090 --> 00:22:58.020
  • WE STAND FIRM BECAUSE WE'RE NOT CITIZENS OF EARTH,
  • 00:22:58.050 --> 00:23:01.050
  • WE'RE RESIDENTS OF EARTH, AND CITIZENS OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:23:01.080 --> 00:23:04.130
  • IF YOU REMEMBER YOUR CITIZENSHIP,
  • 00:23:04.160 --> 00:23:07.000
  • YOU'RE GONNA REMEMBER YOUR RIGHTS.
  • 00:23:07.030 --> 00:23:08.250
  • YOU KNOW, I TRAVEL SO MUCH, AND I FLY EVERYWHERE,
  • 00:23:08.280 --> 00:23:11.120
  • AND SO I'VE GOT SOME GREAT STATUS WITH LOTS OF AIRLINES,
  • 00:23:11.150 --> 00:23:15.090
  • AND ONE DAY I DIDN'T REALIZE THAT I WENT UP IN STATUS
  • 00:23:15.120 --> 00:23:18.250
  • WITH A PARTICULAR AIRLINE
  • 00:23:18.280 --> 00:23:19.280
  • BECAUSE I'VE BEEN FLYING THIS OTHER AIRLINE.
  • 00:23:20.010 --> 00:23:21.240
  • SO I WAITED IN THE LINE WITH EVERYBODY ELSE,
  • 00:23:21.270 --> 00:23:24.200
  • AND NEARLY AN HOUR JUST TO CHECK IN,
