  • - JOEL OSTEEN: WELL, GOD
  • 00:00:11.270 --> 00:00:12.130
  • BLESS YOU.
  • 00:00:12.130 --> 00:00:13.040
  • IT'S A JOY TO COME INTO YOUR
  • 00:00:13.040 --> 00:00:14.020
  • HOMES, AND IF YOU'RE EVER IN
  • 00:00:14.020 --> 00:00:15.200
  • OUR AREA, PLEASE STOP BY AND
  • 00:00:15.200 --> 00:00:17.210
  • BE A PART OF ONE OF OUR
  • 00:00:17.210 --> 00:00:18.240
  • SERVICES.
  • 00:00:18.240 --> 00:00:19.210
  • I PROMISE YOU WE'LL MAKE YOU
  • 00:00:19.210 --> 00:00:20.290
  • FEEL RIGHT AT HOME.
  • 00:00:20.290 --> 00:00:23.020
  • I LIKE TO START WITH
  • 00:00:23.020 --> 00:00:23.240
  • SOMETHING FUNNY, AND I HEARD
  • 00:00:23.240 --> 00:00:25.010
  • ABOUT THESE THREE MEN: A
  • 00:00:25.010 --> 00:00:26.140
  • BAPTIST, A CATHOLIC, AND A
  • 00:00:26.140 --> 00:00:28.050
  • CHARISMATIC.
  • 00:00:28.050 --> 00:00:29.180
  • THEY DIED ON THE SAME DAY AND
  • 00:00:29.180 --> 00:00:31.070
  • WENT TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:00:31.070 --> 00:00:32.060
  • SAINT PETER MET THEM AT THE
  • 00:00:32.060 --> 00:00:33.110
  • PEARLY GATES AND SAID, "I'M
  • 00:00:33.110 --> 00:00:34.220
  • SORRY, MEN, YOUR ROOMS ARE
  • 00:00:34.220 --> 00:00:36.160
  • NOT AVAILABLE YET."
  • 00:00:36.160 --> 00:00:37.290
  • DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH
  • 00:00:37.290 --> 00:00:38.240
  • THEM.
  • 00:00:38.240 --> 00:00:39.170
  • HE DECIDED TO ASK SATAN IF HE
  • 00:00:39.170 --> 00:00:41.150
  • WOULD KEEP THEM FOR A LITTLE
  • 00:00:41.150 --> 00:00:42.130
  • WHILE, AND SATAN RELUCTANTLY
  • 00:00:42.130 --> 00:00:44.100
  • AGREED.
  • 00:00:44.100 --> 00:00:45.090
  • A FEW HOURS LATER, SATAN
  • 00:00:45.090 --> 00:00:46.100
  • CALLED BACK TO PETER: "YOU'VE
  • 00:00:46.100 --> 00:00:47.260
  • GOT TO COME GET THESE GUYS.
  • 00:00:47.260 --> 00:00:49.070
  • THE BAPTIST MAN IS SAVING
  • 00:00:49.070 --> 00:00:50.180
  • EVERYONE.
  • 00:00:50.180 --> 00:00:51.220
  • THE CATHOLIC MAN IS FORGIVING
  • 00:00:51.220 --> 00:00:53.040
  • EVERYONE, AND THE CHARISMATIC
  • 00:00:53.040 --> 00:00:55.000
  • HAS ALREADY RAISED ENOUGH
  • 00:00:55.000 --> 00:00:56.130
  • SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT:
  • 00:00:59.200 --> 00:01:01.050
  • "THIS IS MY BIBLE.
  • 00:01:01.050 --> 00:01:02.150
  • I AM WHAT IT SAYS I AM.
  • 00:01:02.150 --> 00:01:04.070
  • I HAVE WHAT IT SAYS I HAVE.
  • 00:01:04.070 --> 00:01:05.290
  • I CAN DO WHAT IT SAYS I CAN
  • 00:01:05.290 --> 00:01:07.060
  • DO.
  • 00:01:07.060 --> 00:01:08.040
  • TODAY I WILL BE TAUGHT THE
  • 00:01:08.040 --> 00:01:09.150
  • WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:01:09.150 --> 00:01:10.220
  • I BOLDLY CONFESS MY MIND IS
  • 00:01:10.220 --> 00:01:12.210
  • ALERT, MY HEART IS RECEPTIVE.
  • 00:01:12.210 --> 00:01:15.000
  • I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME, IN
  • 00:01:15.000 --> 00:01:16.200
  • JESUS' NAME."
  • 00:01:16.200 --> 00:01:18.100
  • GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:01:18.100 --> 00:01:20.110
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY
  • 00:01:20.110 --> 00:01:21.100
  • ABOUT "HEALED THROUGH
  • 00:01:21.100 --> 00:01:22.230
  • HUMILITY."
  • 00:01:22.230 --> 00:01:24.080
  • WE ALL HAVE TIMES WHERE WE
  • 00:01:24.080 --> 00:01:25.230
  • KNOW WE'RE SUPPOSED TO DO
  • 00:01:25.230 --> 00:01:27.010
  • SOMETHING, BUT IT DOESN'T
  • 00:01:27.010 --> 00:01:28.140
  • SEEM FAIR TO FORGIVE THAT
  • 00:01:28.140 --> 00:01:30.140
  • PERSON THAT DID YOU WRONG, BE
  • 00:01:30.140 --> 00:01:32.160
  • KIND TO A NEIGHBOR THAT'S NOT
  • 00:01:32.160 --> 00:01:33.290
  • TREATING YOU RIGHT, VOLUNTEER
  • 00:01:33.290 --> 00:01:35.290
  • AT THE HOSPITAL EVEN THOUGH
  • 00:01:35.290 --> 00:01:37.110
  • NOBODY IS SAYING, "THANK
  • 00:01:37.110 --> 00:01:38.140
  • YOU."
  • 00:01:38.140 --> 00:01:39.150
  • EVERYTHING ON THE INSIDE WILL
  • 00:01:39.150 --> 00:01:41.100
  • SAY, "I'M NOT FORGIVING THEM.
  • 00:01:41.100 --> 00:01:43.220
  • IT WAS THEIR FAULT.
  • 00:01:43.220 --> 00:01:45.050
  • THEY NEED TO ASK ME FOR
  • 00:01:45.050 --> 00:01:45.290
  • FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:01:45.290 --> 00:01:47.050
  • I'M NOT WORKING ON THAT SMALL
  • 00:01:47.050 --> 00:01:48.150
  • PROJECT, SERVING IN THE
  • 00:01:48.150 --> 00:01:50.070
  • NURSERY.
  • 00:01:50.070 --> 00:01:51.080
  • I'M MORE QUALIFIED THAN
  • 00:01:51.080 --> 00:01:52.060
  • THAT."
  • 00:01:52.060 --> 00:01:53.100
  • BUT IF YOU'RE GOING TO REACH
  • 00:01:53.100 --> 00:01:54.090
  • YOUR HIGHEST POTENTIAL, YOU
  • 00:01:54.090 --> 00:01:56.070
  • HAVE TO HUMBLE YOURSELF AND
  • 00:01:56.070 --> 00:01:58.130
  • DO THINGS YOU MAY NOT
  • 00:01:58.130 --> 00:01:59.290
  • UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:01:59.290 --> 00:02:01.080
  • WE SEE THIS IN THE SCRIPTURE
  • 00:02:01.080 --> 00:02:02.200
  • WITH PETER.
  • 00:02:02.200 --> 00:02:04.010
  • HE'D BEEN OUT FISHING ALL
  • 00:02:04.010 --> 00:02:05.110
  • NIGHT AND CAUGHT NOTHING.
  • 00:02:05.110 --> 00:02:07.050
  • EARLY THE NEXT MORNING, AS HE
  • 00:02:07.050 --> 00:02:08.250
  • WAS COMING IN, ABOUT TO PUT
  • 00:02:08.250 --> 00:02:10.210
  • HIS BOAT AWAY, JESUS SAID TO
  • 00:02:10.210 --> 00:02:12.160
  • HIM, "LAUNCH OUT INTO THE
  • 00:02:12.160 --> 00:02:14.080
  • DEEP, AND YOU WILL CATCH A
  • 00:02:14.080 --> 00:02:15.270
  • GREAT HAUL OF FISH."
  • 00:02:15.270 --> 00:02:18.010
  • PETER COULD'VE SAID, "JESUS,
  • 00:02:18.010 --> 00:02:19.200
  • I LOVE YOU, BUT YOU'RE A
  • 00:02:19.200 --> 00:02:21.010
  • TEACHER.
  • 00:02:21.010 --> 00:02:22.060
  • YOU NEED TO STICK WITH YOUR
  • 00:02:22.060 --> 00:02:23.050
  • PROFESSION.
  • 00:02:23.050 --> 00:02:24.100
  • I'M A FISHERMAN.
  • 00:02:24.100 --> 00:02:25.200
  • I HAVE YEARS OF TRAINING."
  • 00:02:25.200 --> 00:02:27.100
  • HE COULD'VE LET PRIDE TALK
  • 00:02:27.100 --> 00:02:28.230
  • HIM OUT OF IT, THOUGHT, "I'M
  • 00:02:28.230 --> 00:02:30.060
  • AN EXPERT.
  • 00:02:30.060 --> 00:02:31.100
  • I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING."
  • 00:02:31.100 --> 00:02:32.190
  • INSTEAD, HE HUMBLED HIMSELF
  • 00:02:32.190 --> 00:02:35.030
  • AND SAID, "JESUS, IF YOU SAY,
  • 00:02:35.030 --> 00:02:37.020
  • 'LAUNCH OUT,' IT DOESN'T MAKE
  • 00:02:37.020 --> 00:02:39.000
  • SENSE TO ME, BUT I TRUST YOU.
  • 00:02:39.000 --> 00:02:41.240
  • YOU KNOW WHAT'S BEST, SO I'M
  • 00:02:41.240 --> 00:02:42.290
  • GOING TO TAKE THIS STEP OF
  • 00:02:42.290 --> 00:02:44.050
  • FAITH."
  • 00:02:44.050 --> 00:02:45.020
  • WHEN HE DID, HE CAUGHT SO
  • 00:02:45.020 --> 00:02:46.150
  • MANY FISH THAT HIS NET BEGAN
  • 00:02:46.150 --> 00:02:48.060
  • TO BREAK.
  • 00:02:48.060 --> 00:02:49.100
  • HIS PROMOTION WAS IN HIS
  • 00:02:49.100 --> 00:02:51.160
  • HUMILITY.
  • 00:02:51.160 --> 00:02:52.270
  • WHEN YOU SWALLOW YOUR PRIDE
  • 00:02:52.270 --> 00:02:54.290
  • AND SAY, "THIS MAY NOT MAKE
  • 00:02:54.290 --> 00:02:56.060
  • SENSE, BUT I'M GOING TO DO
  • 00:02:56.060 --> 00:02:57.160
  • WHAT GOD'S ASKING ME TO DO,"
  • 00:02:57.160 --> 00:02:59.210
  • "I'M GOING TO HUMBLE MYSELF
  • 00:02:59.210 --> 00:03:01.060
  • AND BE GOOD TO THIS PERSON
  • 00:03:01.060 --> 00:03:02.250
  • THAT DID ME WRONG," "I'M
  • 00:03:02.250 --> 00:03:04.090
  • GOING TO BE MY BEST AT WORK,
  • 00:03:04.090 --> 00:03:06.080
  • EVEN THOUGH NOBODY'S GIVING
  • 00:03:06.080 --> 00:03:07.100
  • ME CREDIT," WHEN YOU WALK IN
  • 00:03:07.100 --> 00:03:09.080
  • HUMILITY, YOU WILL SEE THE
  • 00:03:09.080 --> 00:03:10.250
  • GREAT HAUL OF FISH.
  • 00:03:10.250 --> 00:03:12.290
  • LIKE PETER, YOUR PROMOTION,
  • 00:03:12.290 --> 00:03:14.240
  • YOUR HEALING, YOUR
  • 00:03:14.240 --> 00:03:15.280
  • BREAKTHROUGH, IT'S IN YOUR
  • 00:03:15.280 --> 00:03:17.070
  • HUMILITY.
  • 00:03:17.070 --> 00:03:18.180
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, "JESUS
  • 00:03:18.180 --> 00:03:20.140
  • HUMBLED HIMSELF AND BECAME
  • 00:03:20.140 --> 00:03:22.190
  • OBEDIENT."
  • 00:03:22.190 --> 00:03:23.250
  • IT DOESN'T SAY HE WAS
  • 00:03:23.250 --> 00:03:25.010
  • OBEDIENT BECAUSE HE WAS SO
  • 00:03:25.010 --> 00:03:26.270
  • STRONG-WILLED, SO RIGHTEOUS
  • 00:03:26.270 --> 00:03:29.180
  • THAT HE ALWAYS DID THE RIGHT
  • 00:03:29.180 --> 00:03:30.180
  • THING.
  • 00:03:30.180 --> 00:03:31.190
  • EVEN JESUS HAD TO HUMBLE
  • 00:03:31.190 --> 00:03:33.240
  • HIMSELF.
  • 00:03:33.240 --> 00:03:35.040
  • IT TAKES HUMILITY TO WALK IN
  • 00:03:35.040 --> 00:03:37.090
  • OBEDIENCE.
  • 00:03:37.090 --> 00:03:38.190
  • WITHOUT HUMILITY, JESUS
  • 00:03:38.190 --> 00:03:40.150
  • COULD'VE THOUGHT, "I'M THE
  • 00:03:40.150 --> 00:03:41.140
  • SON OF GOD.
  • 00:03:41.140 --> 00:03:42.260
  • I DON'T HAVE TO PUT UP WITH
  • 00:03:42.260 --> 00:03:43.190
  • THESE INSULTS.
  • 00:03:43.190 --> 00:03:44.210
  • I'M NOT GOING TO THE CROSS."
  • 00:03:44.210 --> 00:03:46.220
  • IT WAS HIS HUMILITY THAT KEPT
  • 00:03:46.220 --> 00:03:48.200
  • HIM FROM RETALIATING FROM THE
  • 00:03:48.200 --> 00:03:50.200
  • PEOPLE THAT DID HIM WRONG.
  • 00:03:50.200 --> 00:03:52.190
  • HIS HUMILITY IS WHY HE COULD
  • 00:03:52.190 --> 00:03:54.110
  • HANG ON A CROSS AND SAY,
  • 00:03:54.110 --> 00:03:56.010
  • "FATHER, FORGIVE THEM.
  • 00:03:56.010 --> 00:03:57.200
  • THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY'RE
  • 00:03:57.200 --> 00:03:58.170
  • DOING."
  • 00:03:58.170 --> 00:03:59.080
  • THERE ARE TIMES GOD ASKS US
  • 00:03:59.080 --> 00:04:01.080
  • TO DO THINGS THAT SEEM HARD.
  • 00:04:01.080 --> 00:04:03.150
  • YOUR FLESH WILL RISE UP AND
  • 00:04:03.150 --> 00:04:05.050
  • TELL YOU ALL THE REASONS WHY
  • 00:04:05.050 --> 00:04:06.290
  • YOU SHOULD PUT THE BOAT AWAY
  • 00:04:06.290 --> 00:04:08.240
  • AND NOT GO BACK OUT, WHY YOU
  • 00:04:08.240 --> 00:04:10.140
  • SHOULD TELL THEM OFF AND NOT
  • 00:04:10.140 --> 00:04:11.290
  • BITE YOUR TONGUE.
  • 00:04:11.290 --> 00:04:13.130
  • THIS IS WHEN YOU HAVE TO DO
  • 00:04:13.130 --> 00:04:15.010
  • LIKE JESUS.
  • 00:04:15.010 --> 00:04:16.090
  • HUMBLE YOURSELF SO YOU CAN
  • 00:04:16.090 --> 00:04:18.130
  • BECOME OBEDIENT.
  • 00:04:18.130 --> 00:04:20.040
  • YOU HAVE TO PUT YOUR PRIDE
  • 00:04:20.040 --> 00:04:21.170
  • DOWN AND SAY, "NO, I'M NOT
  • 00:04:21.170 --> 00:04:23.210
  • GOING TO BE OFFENDED BECAUSE
  • 00:04:23.210 --> 00:04:25.160
  • THEY LEFT ME OUT.
  • 00:04:25.160 --> 00:04:26.250
  • I'M NOT GOING TO BE TOO PROUD
  • 00:04:26.250 --> 00:04:28.190
  • TO ASK FOR FORGIVENESS, TO
  • 00:04:28.190 --> 00:04:30.110
  • SAY, 'I'M SORRY,' TO ADMIT
  • 00:04:30.110 --> 00:04:32.070
  • THAT I WAS WRONG.
  • 00:04:32.070 --> 00:04:33.290
  • WHEN WE DON'T HAVE HUMILITY,
  • 00:04:33.290 --> 00:04:36.080
  • WE THINK WE'RE ALWAYS RIGHT.
  • 00:04:36.080 --> 00:04:38.060
  • WE'LL BE STUBBORN, HARD TO
  • 00:04:38.060 --> 00:04:39.130
  • GET ALONG WITH.
  • 00:04:39.130 --> 00:04:41.010
  • OUR RELATIONSHIPS WILL BE
  • 00:04:41.010 --> 00:04:42.140
  • MUCH BETTER IF WE'LL HUMBLE
  • 00:04:42.140 --> 00:04:44.180
  • OURSELVES AND LET SOMEBODY
  • 00:04:44.180 --> 00:04:46.110
  • ELSE BE RIGHT.
  • 00:04:46.110 --> 00:04:48.030
  • HONOR THEM BY LETTING THEM
  • 00:04:48.030 --> 00:04:49.160
  • HAVE THEIR WAY.
  • 00:04:49.160 --> 00:04:51.030
  • WHEN VICTORIA AND I WERE
  • 00:04:51.030 --> 00:04:52.070
  • FIRST MARRIED, SHE DIDN'T
  • 00:04:52.070 --> 00:04:53.190
  • LIKE ME TO GO INTO THE
  • 00:04:53.190 --> 00:04:54.230
  • KITCHEN WHILE SHE WAS COOKING
  • 00:04:54.230 --> 00:04:56.230
  • AFTER I WORKED OUT AND WASHED
  • 00:04:56.230 --> 00:04:58.250
  • MY HANDS.
  • 00:04:58.250 --> 00:05:00.070
  • SHE DIDN'T WANT MY SWEAT TO
  • 00:05:00.070 --> 00:05:01.180
  • BE AROUND THE FOOD.
  • 00:05:01.180 --> 00:05:02.290
  • THE PROBLEM WAS, WHEN I CAME
  • 00:05:02.290 --> 00:05:04.170
  • IN FROM THE OUTSIDE, THE
  • 00:05:04.170 --> 00:05:05.290
  • KITCHEN SINK WAS THE MOST
  • 00:05:05.290 --> 00:05:07.250
  • CONVENIENT SINK.
  • 00:05:07.250 --> 00:05:09.150
  • IT WAS RIGHT THERE IN MY
  • 00:05:09.150 --> 00:05:10.130
  • PATH.
  • 00:05:10.130 --> 00:05:11.040
  • I DIDN'T WANT TO WALK TO THE
  • 00:05:11.040 --> 00:05:12.090
  • BACK.
  • 00:05:12.090 --> 00:05:13.060
  • THIS WAS TOO EASY.
  • 00:05:13.060 --> 00:05:14.170
  • FOR A LONG TIME, I'D RUN IN
  • 00:05:14.170 --> 00:05:16.070
  • THERE AND WASH MY HANDS REAL
  • 00:05:16.070 --> 00:05:17.220
  • QUICKLY AND HOPE THAT SHE
  • 00:05:17.220 --> 00:05:19.020
  • DIDN'T SEE ME, AND SHE NEVER
  • 00:05:19.020 --> 00:05:20.230
  • HARPED ON ME, BUT I KNEW SHE
  • 00:05:20.230 --> 00:05:22.270
  • DIDN'T LIKE IT.
  • 00:05:22.270 --> 00:05:24.100
  • I REASONED IT OUT, THOUGHT,
  • 00:05:24.100 --> 00:05:25.290
  • "IT'S NOT HURTING ANYTHING.
  • 00:05:25.290 --> 00:05:27.260
  • I'M CAREFUL NOT TO DRIP
  • 00:05:27.260 --> 00:05:28.280
  • ANYWHERE, AND BESIDES, THIS
  • 00:05:28.280 --> 00:05:30.100
  • IS MY HOUSE TOO.
  • 00:05:30.100 --> 00:05:31.220
  • I DON'T FEEL LIKE WALKING TO
  • 00:05:31.220 --> 00:05:33.060
  • THE BACK."
  • 00:05:33.060 --> 00:05:34.180
  • HERE, I JUST PLAYED 90
  • 00:05:34.180 --> 00:05:36.020
  • MINUTES OF BASKETBALL,
  • 00:05:36.020 --> 00:05:37.180
  • RUNNING UP AND DOWN THE
  • 00:05:37.180 --> 00:05:38.170
  • COURT, AND I CAME HOME AND
  • 00:05:38.170 --> 00:05:40.020
  • DIDN'T WANT TO WALK 30 MORE
  • 00:05:40.020 --> 00:05:41.080
  • FEET TO THE BACK.
  • 00:05:41.080 --> 00:05:42.270
  • PRIDE CAUSES US TO MAKE LAME
  • 00:05:42.270 --> 00:05:44.190
  • EXCUSES, TO BE STUBBORN, ONLY
  • 00:05:44.190 --> 00:05:47.040
  • SEE THINGS OUR WAY.
  • 00:05:47.040 --> 00:05:48.280
  • ONE DAY, I WENT IN THERE TO
  • 00:05:48.280 --> 00:05:50.050
  • WASH MY HANDS, AND I HEARD
  • 00:05:50.050 --> 00:05:52.050
  • SOMETHING DOWN IN HERE SAY,
  • 00:05:52.050 --> 00:05:53.280
  • "JOEL, WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO
  • 00:05:53.280 --> 00:05:55.210
  • START HONORING YOUR WIFE BY
  • 00:05:55.210 --> 00:05:57.250
  • DOING WHAT SHE'S ASKING YOU
  • 00:05:57.250 --> 00:05:59.050
  • TO DO?"
  • 00:05:59.050 --> 00:06:00.230
  • GOD."UGHT, "THAT COULDN'T BE
  • 00:06:01.260 --> 00:06:04.070
  • IT'S NEVER GOD WHEN WE DON'T
  • 00:06:04.070 --> 00:06:05.020
  • LIKE IT.
  • 00:06:05.020 --> 00:06:06.130
  • BUT THERE MAY BE THINGS THAT
  • 00:06:06.130 --> 00:06:07.240
  • YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE ARE
  • 00:06:07.240 --> 00:06:08.280
  • RIGHT.
  • 00:06:08.280 --> 00:06:09.180
  • YOU DON'T THINK YOU SHOULD
  • 00:06:09.180 --> 00:06:10.140
  • HAVE TO DO THEM.
  • 00:06:10.140 --> 00:06:11.120
  • ONE WAY YOU CAN HONOR GOD IS
  • 00:06:11.120 --> 00:06:13.240
  • BY HONORING THE PEOPLE IN
  • 00:06:13.240 --> 00:06:15.090
  • "I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO WALK TO
  • 00:06:17.080 --> 00:06:17.270
  • THE BACK."
  • 00:06:17.270 --> 00:06:18.290
  • "I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO CLEAN UP
  • 00:06:18.290 --> 00:06:20.030
  • THE MESS THEY MADE."
  • 00:06:20.030 --> 00:06:21.190
  • "I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO SIT IN
  • 00:06:21.190 --> 00:06:22.170
  • THIS SECTION WHERE THE USHERS
  • 00:06:22.170 --> 00:06:24.020
  • ASKED ME TO SIT."
  • 00:06:24.020 --> 00:06:25.080
  • GOD IS SAYING, "WILL YOU DO
  • 00:06:25.080 --> 00:06:27.020
  • IT FOR ME?
  • 00:06:27.020 --> 00:06:28.190
  • WILL YOU WALK TO THE BACK FOR
  • 00:06:28.190 --> 00:06:29.170
  • ME?
  • 00:06:29.170 --> 00:06:30.090
  • WILL YOU CLEAN THE MESS UP
  • 00:06:30.090 --> 00:06:31.110
  • FOR ME?
  • 00:06:31.110 --> 00:06:32.110
  • WILL YOU OVERLOOK THE OFFENSE
  • 00:06:32.110 --> 00:06:33.220
  • FOR ME?"
  • 00:06:33.220 --> 00:06:34.210
  • DO IT UNTO GOD.
  • 00:06:34.210 --> 00:06:36.020
  • WHEN YOU HONOR GOD, HE WILL
  • 00:06:36.020 --> 00:06:37.150
  • A FEW YEARS LATER, WE BUILT A
  • 00:06:39.160 --> 00:06:41.030
  • NEW HOUSE.
  • 00:06:41.030 --> 00:06:42.150
  • I PUT A SINK RIGHT AT MY BACK
  • 00:06:42.150 --> 00:06:43.270
  • DOOR.
  • 00:06:43.270 --> 00:06:45.110
  • THE FIRST TIME VICTORIA WENT
  • 00:06:45.110 --> 00:06:46.140
  • IN THERE TO WASH HER HANDS, I
  • 00:06:46.140 --> 00:06:47.170
  • SAID, "DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT
  • 00:06:47.170 --> 00:06:48.230
  • USING MY SINK."
  • 00:06:48.230 --> 00:06:50.290
  • BUT I WONDER HOW MUCH BETTER
  • 00:06:50.290 --> 00:06:52.240
  • OUR RELATIONSHIPS WOULD BE IF
  • 00:06:52.240 --> 00:06:54.240
  • WE'D START WALKING IN
  • 00:06:54.240 --> 00:06:55.280
  • HUMILITY, HONORING THE OTHER
  • 00:06:55.280 --> 00:06:57.270
  • PERSON, LETTERING THEM HAVE
  • 00:06:57.270 --> 00:06:59.110
  • THEIR WAY, NOT ALWAYS HAVING
  • 00:06:59.110 --> 00:07:01.140
  • TO BE RIGHT.
  • 00:07:01.140 --> 00:07:03.040
  • I KNOW THIS COUPLE.
  • 00:07:03.040 --> 00:07:04.100
  • THEY ARGUED FOR YEARS OVER
  • 00:07:04.100 --> 00:07:06.060
  • THE BEST WAY TO GET OUT OF
  • 00:07:06.060 --> 00:07:07.170
  • THE NEIGHBORHOOD.
  • 00:07:07.170 --> 00:07:08.230
  • THERE WERE TWO MAIN ROUTES.
  • 00:07:08.230 --> 00:07:10.120
  • THE HUSBAND THOUGHT IT WAS
  • 00:07:10.120 --> 00:07:11.080
  • THIS WAY.
  • 00:07:11.080 --> 00:07:11.260
  • THE WIFE THOUGHT IT WAS THE
  • 00:07:11.260 --> 00:07:12.190
  • OTHER.
  • 00:07:12.190 --> 00:07:13.130
  • PRACTICALLY EVERY TIME THEY
  • 00:07:13.130 --> 00:07:14.280
  • DROVE OUT, IT WAS A POINT OF
  • 00:07:14.280 --> 00:07:16.230
  • CONTENTION.
  • 00:07:16.230 --> 00:07:18.000
  • THIS COUPLE, THEY WERE GREAT
  • 00:07:18.000 --> 00:07:19.170
  • PEOPLE, BUT THE PRIDE BEGAN
  • 00:07:19.170 --> 00:07:21.150
  • TO TEAR THEIR RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:07:21.150 --> 00:07:22.210
  • APART.
  • 00:07:22.210 --> 00:07:23.260
  • ONE DAY, THEY HEARD ME
  • 00:07:23.260 --> 00:07:25.070
  • SPEAKING ON THIS SUBJECT, AND
  • 00:07:25.070 --> 00:07:27.050
  • THEY BOTH MADE THE DECISION
  • 00:07:27.050 --> 00:07:28.280
  • TO PUT THEIR PRIDE AWAY, TO
  • 00:07:28.280 --> 00:07:31.020
  • QUIT ARGUING OVER PETTY
  • 00:07:31.020 --> 00:07:32.120
  • THINGS, TO START TREATING
  • 00:07:32.120 --> 00:07:33.230
  • EACH OTHER WITH RESPECT.
  • 00:07:33.230 --> 00:07:35.190
  • THEY TOLD ME HOW THAT MESSAGE
  • 00:07:35.190 --> 00:07:37.190
  • SAVED THEIR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:07:37.190 --> 00:07:39.080
  • I BELIEVE OTHER RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:07:39.080 --> 00:07:41.040
  • WOULD BE SAVED IF WE WOULD
  • 00:07:41.040 --> 00:07:42.280
  • START WALKING IN HUMILITY,
  • 00:07:42.280 --> 00:07:45.040
  • HONORING GOD BY HONORING THE
  • 00:07:45.040 --> 00:07:47.050
  • OTHER PERSON.
  • 00:07:47.050 --> 00:07:48.120
  • THE HEALING FOR YOUR
  • 00:07:48.120 --> 00:07:49.150
  • RELATIONSHIP IS IN YOUR
  • 00:07:49.150 --> 00:07:51.070
  • HUMILITY.
  • 00:07:51.070 --> 00:07:52.150
  • IT'S WHEN YOU HUMBLE YOURSELF
  • 00:07:52.150 --> 00:07:54.140
  • AND DO YOUR PART TO GET
  • 00:07:54.140 --> 00:07:55.290
  • ALONG.
  • 00:07:55.290 --> 00:07:57.040
  • "WELL, JOEL, WHEN HE STARTS
  • 00:07:57.040 --> 00:07:58.100
  • TREATING ME BETTER, THEN I'LL
  • 00:07:58.100 --> 00:07:59.280
  • TREAT HIM BETTER."
  • 00:07:59.280 --> 00:08:01.140
  • YOU HAVE TO MAKE THE FIRST
  • 00:08:01.140 --> 00:08:02.150
  • MOVE.
  • 00:08:02.150 --> 00:08:03.160
  • YOUR HUMILITY CAN START THE
  • 00:08:03.160 --> 00:08:05.020
  • HEALING.
  • 00:08:05.020 --> 00:08:06.100
  • WHEN THEY SEE YOU TAKING THE
  • 00:08:06.100 --> 00:08:07.190
  • HIGH ROAD, NOT BEING
  • 00:08:07.190 --> 00:08:09.110
  • STUBBORN, NOT BEING OFFENDED,
  • 00:08:09.110 --> 00:08:11.200
  • NOT HAVING TO HAVE YOUR WAY,
  • 00:08:11.200 --> 00:08:13.070
  • THAT'S WHEN THINGS WILL BEGIN
  • 00:08:13.070 --> 00:08:14.090
  • TO CHANGE.
  • 00:08:14.090 --> 00:08:15.130
  • THE SCRIPTURES SAYS, "IT'S
  • 00:08:15.130 --> 00:08:17.000
  • THE LITTLE FOXES THAT SPOIL
  • 00:08:17.000 --> 00:08:19.010
  • THE VINES."
  • 00:08:19.010 --> 00:08:20.230
  • IF I WOULD'VE KEPT WASHING MY
  • 00:08:20.230 --> 00:08:22.030
  • HANDS IN THE KITCHEN SINK,
  • 00:08:22.030 --> 00:08:23.190
  • YEAR AFTER YEAR, THAT
  • 00:08:23.190 --> 00:08:25.000
  • DISRESPECT WOULD'VE GROWN.
  • 00:08:25.000 --> 00:08:27.030
  • THE DISHONOR WOULD'VE BECOME
  • 00:08:27.030 --> 00:08:28.090
  • BIGGER.
  • 00:08:28.090 --> 00:08:29.130
  • BEFORE LONG, THESE LITTLE
  • 00:08:29.130 --> 00:08:30.220
  • THINGS ARE TEARING FAMILIES
  • 00:08:30.220 --> 00:08:32.110
  • APART.
  • 00:08:32.110 --> 00:08:33.290
  • I'M ASKING YOU TO SWALLOW
  • 00:08:33.290 --> 00:08:34.270
  • YOUR PRIDE AND START WALKING
  • 00:08:34.270 --> 00:08:36.260
  • IN HUMILITY.
  • 00:08:36.260 --> 00:08:38.060
  • WHAT CAN YOU DO TO GET ALONG
  • 00:08:38.060 --> 00:08:40.290
  • BETTER WITH PEOPLE?
  • 00:08:40.290 --> 00:08:42.140
  • WHAT CAN YOU DO TO STRENGTHEN
  • 00:08:42.140 --> 00:08:44.150
  • YOUR RELATIONSHIPS?
  • 00:08:44.150 --> 00:08:45.280
  • NOT WHAT CAN SOMEBODY ELSE
  • 00:08:45.280 --> 00:08:47.150
  • DO.
  • 00:08:47.150 --> 00:08:48.150
  • YOU CAN'T MAKE THEM CHANGE,
  • 00:08:48.150 --> 00:08:50.050
  • BUT IF YOU'LL CHANGE, IF
  • 00:08:50.050 --> 00:08:51.180
  • YOU'LL START TREATING THEM
  • 00:08:51.180 --> 00:08:53.010
  • WITH RESPECT, DOING WHAT YOU
  • 00:08:53.010 --> 00:08:55.010
  • CAN TO HONOR THEM, BEING

  • SEEDS YOU'RE SOWING, THEY'LL
  • 00:08:58.290 --> 00:09:00.210
  • COME BACK TO YOU.
  • 00:09:00.210 --> 00:09:02.080
  • JUST AS LITTLE FOXES CAN
  • 00:09:02.080 --> 00:09:04.050
  • SPOIL THE VINE, LITTLE ACTS
  • 00:09:04.050 --> 00:09:06.080
  • OF KINDNESS CAN MAKE A BIG
  • 00:09:06.080 --> 00:09:08.000
  • DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:09:08.000 --> 00:09:09.150
  • WHEN VICTORIA SAW ME START
  • 00:09:09.150 --> 00:09:11.050
  • GOING TO THE BACK TO WASH MY
  • 00:09:11.050 --> 00:09:12.190
  • HANDS, SHE HAD TO CHECK THE

  • KITCHEN SINK TO MAKE SURE
  • 00:09:14.100 --> 00:09:15.280
  • SOMETHING WASN'T WRONG.
  • 00:09:15.280 --> 00:09:17.180
  • WHEN SHE REALIZED I WAS DOING
  • 00:09:17.180 --> 00:09:19.160
  • IT JUST TO HONOR HER JUST
  • 00:09:19.160 --> 00:09:21.150
  • BECAUSE SHE ASKED, OUR
  • 00:09:21.150 --> 00:09:23.150
  • RELATIONSHIP WENT TO A NEW
  • 00:09:23.150 --> 00:09:24.240
  • LEVEL.
  • 00:09:24.240 --> 00:09:25.260
  • SHE STARTED COOKING ME BETTER
  • 00:09:25.260 --> 00:09:27.160
  • TV DINNERS.
  • 00:09:27.160 --> 00:09:30.150
  • LITTLE THINGS CAN MAKE A BIG
  • 00:09:30.150 --> 00:09:32.020
  • DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:09:32.020 --> 00:09:33.250
  • THAT DIDN'T HELP MY
  • 00:09:33.250 --> 00:09:34.170
  • RELATIONSHIP AT ALL BUT--THE
  • 00:09:34.170 --> 00:09:37.060
  • FIRST 15 YEARS, OR SO, OF OUR
  • 00:09:37.060 --> 00:09:39.120
  • MARRIAGE, BEFORE WE HAD HELP,
  • 00:09:39.120 --> 00:09:41.130
  • VICTORIA NEVER FILLED HER CAR
  • 00:09:41.130 --> 00:09:42.250
  • UP WITH GAS.
  • 00:09:42.250 --> 00:09:44.060
  • ANYTIME THAT I SAW IT WAS
  • 00:09:44.060 --> 00:09:45.060
  • LOW, I'D MAKE SURE TO TAKE IT
  • 00:09:45.060 --> 00:09:46.280
  • UP AND FILL IT UP FOR HER.
  • 00:09:46.280 --> 00:09:48.230
  • LITTLE ACTS OF KINDNESS HELP
  • 00:09:48.230 --> 00:09:51.040
  • HOLD THINGS TOGETHER.
  • 00:09:51.040 --> 00:09:53.060
  • HOW MUCH BETTER WOULD OUR

  • RELATIONSHIPS BE IF WE PUT
  • 00:09:54.130 --> 00:09:56.140
  • DOWN OUR PRIDE, NOT HAVE TO

  • THAT SAME ENERGY HONORING
  • 00:10:06.190 --> 00:10:08.140
  • EACH OTHER, BELIEVING THE

  • BEST, OVERLOOKING OFFENSES?
  • 00:10:10.020 --> 00:10:12.170
  • THE HEALING IS IN YOUR

  • WAY, NOT IN GETTING EVEN, NOT
  • 00:10:16.110 --> 00:10:18.060
  • IN HOLDING A GRUDGE.

  • HEALED.'"
  • 00:15:54.130 --> 00:15:55.260
  • LOOK AT ALL THESE TIMES
  • 00:15:55.260 --> 00:15:57.090
  • NAAMAN HAD TO PUT DOWN HIS
  • 00:15:57.090 --> 00:15:58.210
  • PRIDE.
  • 00:15:58.210 --> 00:15:59.290
  • A YOUNG MAID TOLD HIM WHAT TO
  • 00:15:59.290 --> 00:16:01.160
  • DO.
  • 00:16:01.160 --> 00:16:02.120
  • THE KING WOULDN'T SEE HIM.
  • 00:16:02.120 --> 00:16:03.240
  • ELISHA WAS TOO BUSY.
  • 00:16:03.240 --> 00:16:05.110
  • NOW HE HAS TO WASH IN A DIRTY
  • 00:16:05.110 --> 00:16:07.260
  • RIVER.
  • 00:16:07.260 --> 00:16:09.020
  • THESE WERE TESTS.
  • 00:16:09.020 --> 00:16:10.090
  • ON THE WAY TO YOUR MIRACLE,
  • 00:16:10.090 --> 00:16:12.090
  • THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF
  • 00:16:12.090 --> 00:16:13.180
  • OPPORTUNITIES TO LET PRIDE
  • 00:16:13.180 --> 00:16:15.190
  • TALK YOU OUT OF IT.
  • 00:16:15.190 --> 00:16:17.030
  • IT MAY NOT HAPPEN THE WAY YOU
  • 00:16:17.030 --> 00:16:18.200
  • THINK THROUGH THE PEOPLE YOU
  • 00:16:18.200 --> 00:16:20.210
  • THINK.
  • 00:16:20.210 --> 00:16:21.250
  • STAY OPEN.
  • 00:16:21.250 --> 00:16:22.250
  • DON'T PUT GOD IN A BOX.
  • 00:16:22.250 --> 00:16:24.180
  • DON'T START WRITING PEOPLE
  • 00:16:24.180 --> 00:16:25.210
  • OFF BECAUSE THEY DON'T LOOK
  • 00:16:25.210 --> 00:16:26.290
  • LIKE YOU, THEY DON'T LIVE IN
  • 00:16:26.290 --> 00:16:28.170
  • YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD, THEY DON'T
  • 00:16:28.170 --> 00:16:29.250
  • ATTEND YOUR CHURCH.
  • 00:16:29.250 --> 00:16:30.270
  • GOD LIKES TO DO UNUSUAL
  • 00:16:30.270 --> 00:16:32.200
  • THINGS.
  • 00:16:32.200 --> 00:16:34.000
  • NAAMAN ALMOST TALKED HIMSELF
  • 00:16:34.000 --> 00:16:35.280
  • OUT OF IT.
  • 00:16:35.280 --> 00:16:36.280
  • HE'D DONE WELL UP TO THIS
  • 00:16:36.280 --> 00:16:38.050
  • POINT, BUT WHEN HE WAS TOLD,
  • 00:16:38.050 --> 00:16:39.260
  • "GO WASH IN THE JORDAN
  • 00:16:39.260 --> 00:16:41.030
  • RIVER," THAT WAS THE STRAW
  • 00:16:41.030 --> 00:16:42.170
  • THAT BROKE THE CAMEL'S BACK.
  • 00:16:42.170 --> 00:16:44.100
  • HE SAID, "NO WAY, THAT'S A
  • 00:16:44.100 --> 00:16:45.130
  • DIRTY RIVER.
  • 00:16:45.130 --> 00:16:46.270
  • THERE ARE MUCH BETTER RIVERS
  • 00:16:46.270 --> 00:16:48.090
  • OVER IN SYRIA.
  • 00:16:48.090 --> 00:16:49.160
  • LET'S GO BACK HOME."
  • 00:16:49.160 --> 00:16:51.090
  • HE TURNED TO LEAVE WHEN THE
  • 00:16:51.090 --> 00:16:53.020
  • SCRIPTURE SAYS HIS SERVANT
  • 00:16:53.020 --> 00:16:55.090
  • SPOKE UP.
  • 00:16:55.090 --> 00:16:56.250
  • NOTICE AGAIN, NOT A PEER, NOT
  • 00:16:56.250 --> 00:16:58.180
  • THE PROPHET, NOT THE
  • 00:16:58.180 --> 00:16:59.240
  • KING--ANOTHER UNDERLING,
  • 00:16:59.240 --> 00:17:02.080
  • SOMEBODY HE NORMALLY WOULDN'T
  • 00:17:02.080 --> 00:17:03.140
  • PAY ATTENTION TO.
  • 00:17:03.140 --> 00:17:05.080
  • THE SERVANT SAID, "NAAMAN, IF
  • 00:17:05.080 --> 00:17:06.260
  • HE WOULD'VE ASKED YOU TO DO
  • 00:17:06.260 --> 00:17:08.010
  • SOMETHING HARD, YOU WOULD DO
  • 00:17:08.010 --> 00:17:09.120
  • IT.
  • 00:17:09.120 --> 00:17:10.060
  • WHY DON'T YOU DO THIS EASY
  • 00:17:10.060 --> 00:17:11.100
  • THING?"
  • 00:17:11.100 --> 00:17:12.140
  • NAAMAN WENT TO THE RIVER,
  • 00:17:12.140 --> 00:17:14.080
  • WASHED ONE TIME, NOTHING
  • 00:17:14.080 --> 00:17:15.180
  • HAPPENED; TWICE, NOTHING;
  • 00:17:15.180 --> 00:17:17.170
  • THREE TIMES, NOTHING.
  • 00:17:17.170 --> 00:17:19.070
  • HE LOOKED AT HIS SKIN AND
  • 00:17:19.070 --> 00:17:20.070
  • THOUGHT, "IF IT WAS GOING TO
  • 00:17:20.070 --> 00:17:21.170
  • WORK, SURELY I'D BE GETTING
  • 00:17:21.170 --> 00:17:23.120
  • BETTER BY NOW."
  • 00:17:23.120 --> 00:17:25.020
  • HE WAS TEMPTED TO GET
  • 00:17:25.020 --> 00:17:26.040
  • DISCOURAGED, BUT HE JUST KEPT
  • 00:17:26.040 --> 00:17:27.120
  • WASHING: FIVE TIMES, NOTHING;
  • 00:17:27.120 --> 00:17:29.120
  • SIX TIMES, NOTHING.
  • 00:17:29.120 --> 00:17:31.030
  • IMAGINE THE HUMILITY, WASHING
  • 00:17:31.030 --> 00:17:33.240
  • IN YOUR ENEMY'S DIRTY RIVER,
  • 00:17:33.240 --> 00:17:35.240
  • AGAIN AND AGAIN.
  • 00:17:35.240 --> 00:17:37.220
  • EVERY VOICE SAID, "NAAMAN,
  • 00:17:37.220 --> 00:17:39.040
  • YOU LOOK LIKE A FOOL,"
  • 00:17:39.040 --> 00:17:41.000
  • "YOU'RE WASTING YOUR TIME,"
  • 00:17:41.000 --> 00:17:42.280
  • BUT ON THE SEVENTH TIME, WHEN
  • 00:17:42.280 --> 00:17:44.270
  • HE CAME UP OUT OF THAT WATER,
  • 00:17:44.270 --> 00:17:46.180
  • HIS SKIN WAS AS CLEAR AS A
  • 00:17:46.180 --> 00:17:48.110
  • BABY.
  • 00:17:48.110 --> 00:17:49.010
  • HE WAS COMPLETELY HEALED.
  • 00:17:49.010 --> 00:17:51.130
  • GOD WAS SHOWING US THE
  • 00:17:51.130 --> 00:17:53.140
  • HEALING WAS IN THE HUMILITY.
  • 00:17:53.170 --> 00:17:56.170
  • WHEN YOU HUMBLE YOURSELF AND
  • 00:17:56.170 --> 00:17:58.170
  • DO WHAT GOD'S ASKING YOU TO
  • 00:17:58.170 --> 00:18:00.040
  • DO, EVEN WHEN IT DOESN'T MAKE
  • 00:18:00.040 --> 00:18:02.000
  • SENSE--FORGIVE THE PERSON
  • 00:18:02.000 --> 00:18:03.260
  • THAT DID YOU WRONG, BE KIND
  • 00:18:03.260 --> 00:18:05.180
  • TO THE CO-WORKER THAT
  • 00:18:05.180 --> 00:18:06.250
  • BETRAYED YOU, TAKE ADVICE
  • 00:18:06.250 --> 00:18:08.150
  • FROM SOMEONE THAT'S NOT ON
  • 00:18:08.150 --> 00:18:10.020
  • YOUR NORMAL CIRCLES--AS YOU
  • 00:18:10.020 --> 00:18:12.010
  • PASS THESE TESTS, THINGS WILL
  • 00:18:12.010 --> 00:18:13.270
  • BEGIN TO CHANGE.
  • 00:18:13.270 --> 00:18:15.080
  • THE BLESSING IS IN THE
  • 00:18:15.080 --> 00:18:17.040
  • OBEDIENCE.
  • 00:18:17.040 --> 00:18:18.120
  • THE WAY TO BE OBEDIENT IS TO
  • 00:18:18.120 --> 00:18:20.170
  • WALK IN HUMILITY BECAUSE
  • 00:18:20.170 --> 00:18:22.220
  • WITHOUT HUMILITY, WE'LL MAKE
  • 00:18:22.220 --> 00:18:24.210
  • EXCUSES: "I'M NOT GOING TO
  • 00:18:24.210 --> 00:18:26.130
  • LISTEN TO THE MAID.
  • 00:18:26.130 --> 00:18:27.280
  • WHAT DOES SHE KNOW?
  • 00:18:27.280 --> 00:18:29.070
  • I'M NOT GOING TO DO THIS
  • 00:18:29.070 --> 00:18:30.030
  • SIMPLE THING, WASH IN A
  • 00:18:30.030 --> 00:18:31.130
  • RIVER."
  • 00:18:31.130 --> 00:18:32.100
  • "SERVE IN THE CHILDREN'S
  • 00:18:32.100 --> 00:18:33.130
  • MINISTRY?
  • 00:18:33.130 --> 00:18:34.070
  • I WANT TO BE ON THE
  • 00:18:34.070 --> 00:18:34.280
  • PLATFORM."
  • 00:18:34.280 --> 00:18:35.250
  • NO, DO WHAT GOD IS ASKING YOU
  • 00:18:35.250 --> 00:18:37.170
  • TO DO.
  • 00:18:37.170 --> 00:18:38.210
  • DON'T OVERANALYZE IT.
  • 00:18:38.210 --> 00:18:39.270
  • DON'T REASON IT OUT.
  • 00:18:39.270 --> 00:18:41.140
  • JUST DO IT.
  • 00:18:41.140 --> 00:18:42.250
  • "WELL, JOEL, I'VE BEEN DOING
  • 00:18:42.250 --> 00:18:44.010
  • IT FOR A LONG TIME, BUT
  • 00:18:44.010 --> 00:18:45.190
  • NOTHING IS CHANGING."
  • 00:18:45.190 --> 00:18:47.040
  • YOU'RE RIGHT WHERE NAAMAN
  • 00:18:47.040 --> 00:18:48.180
  • WAS.
  • 00:18:48.180 --> 00:18:49.180
  • THE FIRST SIX TIMES, NOTHING
  • 00:18:49.180 --> 00:18:51.030
  • HAPPENED, BUT THAT DIDN'T
  • 00:18:51.030 --> 00:18:52.200
  • MEAN SOMETHING WAS WRONG.
  • 00:18:52.200 --> 00:18:55.020
  • YOU'RE RIGHT ON SCHEDULE.
  • 00:18:55.020 --> 00:18:56.240
  • THE GOOD NEWS IS YOU'RE ABOUT
  • 00:18:56.240 --> 00:18:58.090
  • TO COME UP FROM YOUR SEVENTH
  • 00:18:58.090 --> 00:18:59.240
  • DIP, WHERE SUDDENLY HEALING
  • 00:18:59.240 --> 00:19:01.260
  • COMES, SUDDENLY YOU'RE
  • 00:19:01.260 --> 00:19:03.060
  • PROMOTED, SUDDENLY YOU'LL SEE
  • 00:19:03.060 --> 00:19:04.260
  • THAT BREAKTHROUGH.
  • 00:19:04.260 --> 00:19:06.240
  • KEEP DOING THE RIGHT THING.
  • 00:19:06.240 --> 00:19:08.250
  • YOU'RE CLOSE TO YOUR SEVENTH
  • 00:19:08.250 --> 00:19:10.010
  • TIME.
  • 00:19:10.010 --> 00:19:11.060
  • THIS IS WHAT MY FATHER DID.
  • 00:19:11.060 --> 00:19:12.280
  • HE'D BEEN PASTORING A
  • 00:19:12.280 --> 00:19:14.070
  • DENOMINATIONAL CHURCH FOR
  • 00:19:14.070 --> 00:19:15.130
  • MANY YEARS.
  • 00:19:15.130 --> 00:19:16.190
  • HE WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL.
  • 00:19:16.190 --> 00:19:18.030
  • THEY HAD SEEN GREAT GROWTH
  • 00:19:18.030 --> 00:19:19.200
  • AND JUST BUILT A BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:19:19.200 --> 00:19:21.000
  • NEW AUDITORIUM, BUT IN 1959,
  • 00:19:21.170 --> 00:19:24.170
  • HE FELT SOMETHING STIRRING ON
  • 00:19:24.170 --> 00:19:25.270
  • THE INSIDE.
  • 00:19:25.270 --> 00:19:27.180
  • HE KNEW HE WAS SUPPOSED TO
  • 00:19:27.180 --> 00:19:28.270
  • LEAVE THAT CHURCH AND LAUNCH
  • 00:19:28.270 --> 00:19:30.210
  • OUT ON HIS OWN, BUT THE ONLY
  • 00:19:30.210 --> 00:19:32.270
  • BUILDING HE COULD FIND WAS AN
  • 00:19:32.270 --> 00:19:35.020
  • ABANDONED FEED STORE.
  • 00:19:35.020 --> 00:19:37.040
  • HE COULD'VE THOUGHT, "GOD,
  • 00:19:37.040 --> 00:19:38.110
  • YOU HAD ME LEAVE MY BIG,
  • 00:19:38.110 --> 00:19:40.150
  • PRESTIGIOUS CHURCH TO COME
  • 00:19:40.150 --> 00:19:42.160
  • DOWN TO THIS OLD FEED STORE?
  • 00:19:42.160 --> 00:19:44.170
  • I HAD THOUSANDS OF MEMBERS,
  • 00:19:44.170 --> 00:19:46.130
  • AND NOW I HAVE 90 MEMBERS.
  • 00:19:46.130 --> 00:19:48.200
  • THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE."
  • 00:19:48.200 --> 00:19:50.050
  • BUT GOD'S WAYS ARE NOT OUR
  • 00:19:50.050 --> 00:19:51.260
  • WAYS.
  • 00:19:51.260 --> 00:19:53.020
  • MY FATHER HAD TO PUT HIS
  • 00:19:53.020 --> 00:19:54.050
  • PRIDE DOWN.
  • 00:19:54.050 --> 00:19:55.220
  • FOR 13 YEARS, LAKEWOOD HARDLY
  • 00:19:55.220 --> 00:19:58.060
  • GREW, HAD LESS THAN 200
  • 00:19:58.060 --> 00:20:00.050
  • MEMBERS, A FRACTION OF WHAT
  • 00:20:00.050 --> 00:20:02.030
  • MY FATHER HAD BEFORE.
  • 00:20:02.030 --> 00:20:04.040
  • FRIENDS WOULD COME BY: "JOHN,
  • 00:20:04.040 --> 00:20:05.220
  • WHAT ARE YOU DOING STILL
  • 00:20:05.220 --> 00:20:06.190
  • PASTORING THIS SMALL
  • 00:20:06.190 --> 00:20:07.250
  • CHURCH?"
  • 00:20:07.250 --> 00:20:08.260
  • MY DAD DIDN'T GET
  • 00:20:08.260 --> 00:20:09.270
  • DISCOURAGED.
  • 00:20:09.270 --> 00:20:10.220
  • HE KEPT BEING HIS BEST,
  • 00:20:10.220 --> 00:20:12.090
  • SERVING THOSE 90 PEOPLE,
  • 00:20:12.090 --> 00:20:13.250
  • DOING WHAT HE KNEW GOD PUT IN
  • 00:20:13.250 --> 00:20:15.170
  • HIS HEART.
  • 00:20:15.170 --> 00:20:17.030
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, "WHEN YOU
  • 00:20:17.030 --> 00:20:18.250
  • HUMBLE YOURSELF UNDER THE
  • 00:20:18.250 --> 00:20:20.240
  • MIGHTY HAND OF GOD, IN DUE
  • 00:20:20.240 --> 00:20:23.020
  • TIME, HE WILL EXALT YOU."
  • 00:20:23.020 --> 00:20:25.290
  • WHEN YOU WALK IN HUMILITY,
  • 00:20:25.290 --> 00:20:28.050
  • THERE IS A DUE TIME GOD HAS
  • 00:20:28.050 --> 00:20:30.210
  • ALREADY ESTABLISHED WHERE HE
  • 00:20:30.210 --> 00:20:32.070
  • WILL CATAPULT YOU AHEAD, A
  • 00:20:32.070 --> 00:20:34.060
  • DUE TIME WHERE HE WILL THRUST
  • 00:20:34.060 --> 00:20:36.000
  • YOU TO THE NEXT LEVEL.
  • 00:20:36.000 --> 00:20:37.270
  • WHEN YOU COME UP OUT OF YOUR
  • 00:20:37.270 --> 00:20:39.040
  • SEVENTH DIP, WHEN IT'S YOUR
  • 00:20:39.040 --> 00:20:41.030
  • DUE TIME, ALL THE FORCES OF
  • 00:20:41.030 --> 00:20:42.290
  • DARKNESS CANNOT STOP YOU.
  • 00:20:42.290 --> 00:20:44.280
  • WHEN GOD IS READY TO EXALT
  • 00:20:44.280 --> 00:20:46.140
  • YOU, YOU'LL BE EXALTED.
  • 00:20:46.140 --> 00:20:48.290
  • IN 1972, 13 YEARS AFTER MY
  • 00:20:49.040 --> 00:20:52.040
  • FATHER STARTED LAKEWOOD, HE
  • 00:20:52.040 --> 00:20:54.060
  • CAME IN TO HIS DUE TIME.
  • 00:20:54.060 --> 00:20:56.130
  • IT WAS LIKE SOMEBODY OPENED
  • 00:20:56.130 --> 00:20:57.240
  • THE FAUCET.
  • 00:20:57.240 --> 00:20:59.030
  • PEOPLE STARTED COMING FROM
  • 00:20:59.030 --> 00:21:00.040
  • ALL OVER THE CITY.
  • 00:21:00.040 --> 00:21:01.260
  • LAKEWOOD GREW TO A CHURCH OF

  • THOUSANDS.

  • IF MY FATHER WAS HERE, HE
  • 00:21:04.180 --> 00:21:06.040
  • WOULD TELL YOU, "THE
  • 00:21:06.040 --> 00:21:07.160
  • PROMOTION WAS IN THE
  • 00:21:07.160 --> 00:21:09.080
  • HUMILITY."

  • SON, THE YOUNG MAN LEFT HOME
  • 00:21:46.060 --> 00:21:48.160

  • PEN, FEEDING HOGS.
  • 00:21:57.080 --> 00:21:59.180
  • THERE WAS A FAMINE IN THE
  • 00:21:59.180 --> 00:22:00.270
  • LAND, AND HE HAD TO EAT THE

  • HOG FOOD TO SURVIVE.

  • DIRTY, AND IT WAS NOBODY'S
  • 00:22:06.150 --> 00:22:08.050
  • FAULT EXCEPT HIS OWN.
  • 00:22:08.050 --> 00:22:10.060
  • ONE DAY, SITTING IN THE HOG
  • 00:22:10.060 --> 00:22:11.260
  • PEN, HE THOUGHT TO HIMSELF,
  • 00:22:11.260 --> 00:22:14.050
  • "THE EMPLOYEES AT MY FATHER'S
  • 00:22:14.050 --> 00:22:15.220

  • I DO.
  • 00:22:17.150 --> 00:22:18.150
  • I SHOULD GO BACK HOME."

  • HE WAS EXCITED.
  • 00:22:24.000 --> 00:22:25.090
  • THEN HE THOUGHT, "WHAT AM I
  • 00:22:25.090 --> 00:22:26.270
  • TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:22:26.270 --> 00:22:28.060

  • I'LL LOOK LIKE A FOOL.
  • 00:22:31.020 --> 00:22:32.060
  • I CAN'T ADMIT THAT I MADE A
  • 00:22:32.060 --> 00:22:33.050
  • MISTAKE."
  • 00:22:33.050 --> 00:22:34.030
  • PRIDE ROSE UP AND TRIED TO
  • 00:22:34.030 --> 00:22:36.000
  • KEEP HIM FROM GOING BACK
  • 00:22:36.000 --> 00:22:37.050
  • "WHEN HE CAME TO HIMSELF, HE,
  • 00:22:39.130 --> 00:22:41.080
  • SAID, 'I WILL ARISE AND GO
  • 00:22:41.080 --> 00:22:43.090
  • BACK TO MY FATHER'S HOUSE.'"
  • 00:22:43.090 --> 00:22:45.250
  • HE CAME TO THE POINT WHERE HE
  • 00:22:45.250 --> 00:22:47.170
  • HUMBLED HIMSELF.
  • 00:22:47.170 --> 00:22:49.010
  • HE WAS WILLING TO ADMIT,
  • 00:22:49.010 --> 00:22:50.130
  • "I'VE MADE A MISTAKE.
  • 00:22:50.130 --> 00:22:51.280
  • I'VE DONE WRONG."
  • 00:22:51.280 --> 00:22:53.040
  • HE PUT HIS PRIDE DOWN AND
  • 00:22:53.040 --> 00:22:54.210
  • HEADED TOWARD HIS HOUSE.
  • 00:22:54.210 --> 00:22:56.170
  • HIM, CAME RUNNING OUT, GAVE

  • FATTED CALF.
  • 00:23:01.030 --> 00:23:02.010
