  • BUT GOD SENT YOU A LOVE LETTER WHEN HE GAVE YOU HIS WORD.
  • 00:01:56.010 --> 00:01:59.280
  • SCRIPTURE IS NOT JUST AN AMALGAMATION OF MISCELLANEOUS
  • 00:02:00.030 --> 00:02:03.270
  • BOOKS WITH NO STRUCTURE.
  • 00:02:04.000 --> 00:02:05.280
  • SCRIPTURE IS THE INERRANT WORD OF GOD DESIGNED TO HELP YOU
  • 00:02:06.010 --> 00:02:09.260
  • WITH EVERY AREA OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:02:09.290 --> 00:02:12.190
  • GOD KNEW YOU NEEDED IT, BECAUSE LIFE HAS A WAY
  • 00:02:12.220 --> 00:02:15.090
  • OF BEATING YOU UP AND AND MAKING YOU WONDER
  • 00:02:15.120 --> 00:02:17.020
  • IF GOD REALLY LOVES YOU.

  • YOU HAD TO WRITE IT, WITH A HEART
  • 00:03:46.110 --> 00:03:49.050

  • 00:04:23.070 --> 00:04:24.100
  • YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE REAL PROFOUND.
  • 00:04:24.130 --> 00:04:26.210

  • SO YOU'D WRITE SOMETHING, THEY'D WRITE SOMETHING BACK

  • AND YOU'D READ IT AND BE ALL EXCITED.
  • 00:05:11.120 --> 00:05:13.230
  • AND IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE WE WERE ON THE WAY TO THE CHURCH
  • 00:05:13.260 --> 00:05:17.090
  • AND I SAID, BABE YOU USED TO EVER GET LOVE LETTERS?
  • 00:05:17.120 --> 00:05:20.150
  • SHE WAS LIKE, MM I STILL GOT A SHOEBOX FULL,

  • I WAS LIKE, THAT'S WHAT YOU THINK.
  • 00:05:22.250 --> 00:05:25.010
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:05:25.040 --> 00:05:26.010
  • THEY'VE BEEN IN THE TRASH.
  • 00:05:26.040 --> 00:05:28.240
  • I FOUND THEM, YOU WAS HIDING THEM.
  • 00:05:28.270 --> 00:05:39.250
  • WHEN YOU,
  • 00:05:39.280 --> 00:05:43.050
  • WANNA GET SOMEBODY'S ATTENTION, BACK IN THOSE DAYS
  • 00:05:43.080 --> 00:05:46.150
  • YOU DIDN'T JUST SAY TERRIBLE THINGS,
  • 00:05:46.180 --> 00:05:48.030
  • YOU SAID THE SWEETEST THINGS YOU COULD.
  • 00:05:48.060 --> 00:05:51.070
  • YOU LOOK GOOD!
  • 00:05:51.100 --> 00:05:53.070
  • START QUOTING LYRICS FROM SONGS.
  • 00:05:53.100 --> 00:05:58.020
  • WHEN I'M ALONE IN MY ROOM SOMETIMES I STARE AT THE WALL
  • 00:05:58.050 --> 00:06:01.040
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:06:01.070 --> 00:06:02.090
  • AND IN THE BACK OF MY MIND I HEAR MY CONSCIOUS CALL,
  • 00:06:02.120 --> 00:06:05.070
  • TELLING ME I NEED A GIRL WHO'S AS SWEET AS A DOVE,
  • 00:06:05.100 --> 00:06:08.100
  • FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE, I SEE I NEED LOVE.
  • 00:06:08.130 --> 00:06:13.120
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:06:13.150 --> 00:06:16.200
  • SHE'D BE LIKE, OH HE IS SUCH POET, GIRL READ THIS.
  • 00:06:16.230 --> 00:06:25.150
  • BUT THEN WHEN YOU WANTED TO TAKE IT TO THAT NEXT LEVEL,
  • 00:06:25.180 --> 00:06:28.160
  • WHERE YOU AINT JUST WRITING LETTERS.
  • 00:06:28.190 --> 00:06:30.240
  • I GOT ENOUGH FEEDBACK IN THE LETTERS TO KNOW YOU LIKE ME,
  • 00:06:30.270 --> 00:06:35.060
  • SO LET ME GO ON AND TAKE THIS TO THE NEXT LEVEL
  • 00:06:35.090 --> 00:06:36.250
  • AND LET ME GET YOU THIS ONE.
  • 00:06:36.280 --> 00:06:39.030
  • AND THEN YOU PUT, YOU KNOW, THE MARKER AROUND,
  • 00:06:39.060 --> 00:06:42.090
  • YOUR INITIALS AND SHE OPENS IT.
  • 00:06:42.120 --> 00:06:44.270
  • WILL YOU GO WITH ME?
  • 00:06:45.000 --> 00:06:47.170
  • CHECK YES, OR NO.
  • 00:06:47.200 --> 00:06:50.000
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:06:50.030 --> 00:06:51.150
  • HOW MANY PEOPLE GOT THAT ONE?
  • 00:06:51.180 --> 00:06:53.210
  • [CHEERING]
  • 00:06:53.240 --> 00:06:54.260
  • SEE I WASN'T THE CUTE DUDE IN SCHOOL SO I DIDN'T PUT
  • 00:06:54.290 --> 00:06:57.200
  • THE NO ON THERE.
  • 00:06:57.230 --> 00:06:58.150
  • I WAS JUST, CHECK YES OR LATER.
  • 00:06:58.180 --> 00:07:01.180
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:07:01.210 --> 00:07:04.170
  • I HATE REJECTION [CHUCKLES].
  • 00:07:04.200 --> 00:07:11.060
  • AND WHEN SHE CHECKED YES,
  • 00:07:11.090 --> 00:07:13.170
  • OOH, THANK YOU JESUS.
  • 00:07:13.200 --> 00:07:19.020
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:07:19.050 --> 00:07:22.070
  • WE GO TOGETHER!
  • 00:07:22.100 --> 00:07:24.030
  • DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT MEANS,
  • 00:07:24.060 --> 00:07:26.040
  • WE 14 BUT WE GO TOGETHER!
  • 00:07:26.070 --> 00:07:28.210
  • THAT MEANS WE ARE AN ITEM,
  • 00:07:28.240 --> 00:07:30.140
  • WE GOT TO THE ICE-CREAM TRUCK TOGETHER.
  • 00:07:30.170 --> 00:07:33.000
  • WE HOLD HANDS WHEN OUR PARENTS AINT AROUND.
  • 00:07:33.030 --> 00:07:40.020
  • SOMETHING ABOUT THOSE LETTERS,
  • 00:07:40.050 --> 00:07:44.010
  • SOMETHING ABOUT THE FACT THAT SOMEONE TOOK TIME
  • 00:07:44.040 --> 00:07:47.180
  • TO WRITE, TO TELL YOU HOW THEY FEEL.
  • 00:07:47.210 --> 00:07:51.250
  • SOMETHING ABOUT IT,
  • 00:07:51.280 --> 00:07:53.220
  • IT JUST REACHES YOU BECAUSE THERE'S POWER IN WORDS.
  • 00:07:53.250 --> 00:07:59.290
  • IT'S ONE THING TO SPEAK THEM BUT WHEN THEY'RE WRITTEN
  • 00:08:00.040 --> 00:08:02.000
  • IT JUST HAS A DIFFERENT AUTHORITY.
  • 00:08:02.030 --> 00:08:06.010
  • AND WHEN I THINK ABOUT THE ULTIMATE LOVE LETTER,
  • 00:08:06.040 --> 00:08:09.270
  • I HAVE TO COME TO THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:08:10.000 --> 00:08:13.270
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:08:14.000 --> 00:08:21.010
  • IF YOU LOOK AT THE HISTORY OF HOW THE BIBLE CAME TO BE,
  • 00:08:21.040 --> 00:08:25.190
  • OVER 1500 YEARS OF WRITTEN HISTORY,
  • 00:08:25.220 --> 00:08:31.010
  • OVER 40 DIFFERENT WRITERS.
  • 00:08:31.040 --> 00:08:34.090
  • HISTORICAL BOOKS, YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:08:34.120 --> 00:08:37.200
  • POETRY BOOKS, YOU'VE GOT THE LAW.
  • 00:08:37.230 --> 00:08:39.240
  • YOU'VE GOT THE MINOR PROPHETS, THE MAJOR PROPHETS.
  • 00:08:39.270 --> 00:08:42.130
  • YOU'VE GOT THE GOSPELS, THE SYNOPTIC GOSPEL
  • 00:08:42.160 --> 00:08:45.090
  • THEN YOU'VE GOT EPISTLES, YOU'VE GOT REVELATION.
  • 00:08:45.120 --> 00:08:48.180
  • YOU GOT THIS PROPHETIC THING,
  • 00:08:48.210 --> 00:08:52.120
  • YOU'VE GOT 66 DIFFERENT LETTERS,
  • 00:08:52.150 --> 00:08:57.040
  • FROM MULTIPLE HANDS BUT FROM ONE SINGULAR HEART.
  • 00:08:57.070 --> 00:09:05.270
  • AND I FEEL THE HOLY SPIRIT TONIGHT
  • 00:09:06.000 --> 00:09:07.170
  • BECAUSE SOMEBODY DIDN'T KNOW
  • 00:09:07.200 --> 00:09:10.030
  • THAT GOD SENT YOU A LOVE LETTER.
  • 00:09:10.060 --> 00:09:16.280
  • SEE, BECAUSE LIFE BEATS YOU UP.
  • 00:09:17.010 --> 00:09:19.150
  • WE'VE HAD ENOUGH REJECTION, WE'VE HAD ENOUGH LOSS.
  • 00:09:19.180 --> 00:09:22.240
  • I WAS PRAYING WITH SOMEONE TODAY WHO SAID,
  • 00:09:22.270 --> 00:09:26.000
  • WE'VE LOST EVERYTHING, RIGHT NOW WE'RE LIVING IN A HOTEL,
  • 00:09:26.030 --> 00:09:29.190
  • I NEED YOU TO PRAY.
  • 00:09:29.220 --> 00:09:31.050
  • AND I PRAYED THAT THE LORD WOULD BLESS THEM,
  • 00:09:31.080 --> 00:09:33.260
  • AND THEIR CHILDREN AND I SAID TO THEM,
  • 00:09:33.290 --> 00:09:35.160
  • AT THE END OF THE PRAYER I SAID,
  • 00:09:35.190 --> 00:09:37.040
  • GOD IS AS GOOD TODAY AS HE WAS ON YOUR BEST DAY.
  • 00:09:37.070 --> 00:09:41.270
  • HE HAS NOT CHANGED, AND HE HAS NOT FORGOTTEN ABOUT YOU.

  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:09:46.200 --> 00:09:48.060
  • IT'S HARD
  • 00:09:48.090 --> 00:09:50.190
  • TO BELIEVE THOSE WORDS WHEN YOU'RE IN THE MIDDLE
  • 00:09:50.220 --> 00:09:53.250
  • OF THAT SITUATION, BUT IF I CAN REFER BACK TO MY LOVE LETTER
  • 00:09:53.280 --> 00:10:00.180
  • I CAN IDENTIFY THAT THE CHARACTER OF MY GOD
  • 00:10:00.210 --> 00:10:05.130
  • IS GREATER AND TO BE TRUSTED MORE
  • 00:10:05.160 --> 00:10:08.080
  • THAN THE CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCE THAT I'M IN.
  • 00:10:08.110 --> 00:10:14.160
  • I WANNA TALK TO YOU ABOUT FAITH.
  • 00:10:14.190 --> 00:10:19.010
  • BECAUSE WE ARE HERE AS PEOPLE OF FAITH,
  • 00:10:19.040 --> 00:10:22.080
  • YOU ARE HERE TONIGHT, IT'S A STATEMENT OF FAITH.
  • 00:10:22.110 --> 00:10:25.060
  • THIS IS NOT VAIN RELIGIOSITY, YOU DID NOT JUST COME HERE
  • 00:10:25.090 --> 00:10:28.100
  • TONIGHT BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE OTHER THINGS TO DO.
  • 00:10:28.130 --> 00:10:31.010
  • THIS WAS A LABOR OF LOVE, YOU HAD TO GO THROUGH SOMETHING
  • 00:10:31.040 --> 00:10:35.220
  • TO GET HERE AND I BELIEVE I CAN SPEAK FROM GOD'S HEART
  • 00:10:35.250 --> 00:10:39.200
  • WHERE IT HONORS HIM, AND I BELIEVE GOD IS BLESSED
  • 00:10:39.230 --> 00:10:43.090
  • THAT YOU HAVE SACRIFICED TO BE HERE TONIGHT.
  • 00:10:43.120 --> 00:10:46.100
  • AND DON'T YOU THINK FOR ONE SECOND THAT YOUR GOD
  • 00:10:46.130 --> 00:10:49.120
  • HAS NOT SEEN YOUR LABOR.
  • 00:10:49.150 --> 00:10:52.110
  • HE'S SEEN IT, DON'T YOU THINK FOR ONE SECOND
  • 00:10:52.140 --> 00:10:54.270
  • THAT ANY OF THIS HAS GONE PASSED HEAVEN'S NOTICE.
  • 00:10:55.000 --> 00:10:58.250
  • GOD IS A REWARDER OF THOSE WHO DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM!
  • 00:10:58.280 --> 00:11:03.150
  • AND I JUST BELIEVE PROPHETICALLY I'M SUPPOSED TO SAY
  • 00:11:03.180 --> 00:11:06.090
  • TO SOMEONE TONIGHT, AND PEOPLE WHO ARE WATCHING.
  • 00:11:06.120 --> 00:11:08.280
  • YOU'VE BEEN DILIGENTLY SEEKING HIM, SO EXPECT THE REWARD.

  • OF THE WORD EVEN THOUGH THEY DON'T BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:16:45.070 --> 00:16:47.150
  • AND IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IT, WHY ARE YOU BRINGING IT UP?

  • UNLESS YOU'VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT IT.
  • 00:16:49.280 --> 00:16:51.260

  • 00:16:54.170 --> 00:16:58.040

  • THAT GOD HAS OVERDONE IT WITH HIS LOVE, HE'S BEEN LAVISH.
  • 00:17:48.110 --> 00:17:53.010
  • IT'S ONE THING TO BE LOVED, IT'S ANOTHER TO BE LOVED GOOD.
  • 00:17:53.040 --> 00:17:56.080
  • IT'S ANOTHER TO BE LOVED RIGHT AND NOBODY LOVES YOU LIKE GOD
  • 00:17:56.110 --> 00:18:01.060
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:18:01.090 --> 00:18:03.230

  • TO INVALIDATE OUR FAITH.
  • 00:18:34.040 --> 00:18:38.000
  • THEY USE IT AS AN ATTEMPT TO DISHONOR AND DISCREDIT US,
  • 00:18:38.030 --> 00:18:43.030
  • FOLK WHO MEANDER THROUGH SCRIPTURE IN ORDER TO IMPUGN

  • 00:18:47.060 --> 00:18:49.250
  • MAKE LIGHT OF OUR BELIEFS.
  • 00:18:49.280 --> 00:18:53.000
  • BUT THE LAW WAS NOT SENT TO CONDEMN US,
  • 00:18:53.030 --> 00:18:56.280
  • THE LAW WAS SENT TO PROTECT US.
  • 00:18:57.010 --> 00:19:00.170
  • PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:19:00.200 --> 00:19:02.030
  • YOU KNOW, THE LAW SAYS.
  • 00:19:02.060 --> 00:19:04.130
  • WELL FIRST OF ALL, I'M NOT JEWISH.
  • 00:19:04.160 --> 00:19:07.260
  • I DON'T LIVE IN ANCIENT ISRAEL AND GOD DID NOT REDEEM ME
  • 00:19:07.290 --> 00:19:11.180
  • OUT OF EGYPT WHERE THESE LAWS WERE SPECIFICALLY
  • 00:19:11.210 --> 00:19:15.010
  • FOR THESE PEOPLE AT THIS TIME, TO DIFFERENTIATE
  • 00:19:15.040 --> 00:19:18.280
  • THIS CULTURE FROM THE PEOPLES THAT THEY
  • 00:19:19.010 --> 00:19:21.150
  • WERE BEING DELIVERED FROM.
  • 00:19:21.180 --> 00:19:23.050

  • 00:19:26.110 --> 00:19:30.000
  • THE LAW ON ME BECAUSE IT DIDN'T APPLY TO ME.
  • 00:19:30.030 --> 00:19:33.130
  • I NEVER HEARD OF GOD AND BY THE TIME I HEARD OF GOD
  • 00:19:33.160 --> 00:19:37.000
  • I HEARD OF GOD, NOT THROUGH THE LAW BUT THROUGH A MAN.
  • 00:19:37.030 --> 00:19:40.260
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:19:40.290 --> 00:19:44.190
  • AND NOT JUST ANY MAN BUT A GOOD MAN,
  • 00:19:44.220 --> 00:19:48.080
  • WHAT A MAN, WHAT A MAN, WHAT A MIGHTY GOOD MAN.
  • 00:19:48.110 --> 00:19:52.070
  • THAT'S MY JESUS, THAT'S MY KING.
  • 00:19:52.100 --> 00:19:55.070
  • HE IS THE LOVER OF MY SOUL WHO FOUGHT FOR ME AND WHO WALKED
  • 00:19:55.100 --> 00:20:00.090
  • IN THE EARTH WITH HOLINESS AND INTEGRITY AND COMPASSION,
  • 00:20:00.120 --> 00:20:04.040
  • AND HE DID WHATEVER IT TOOK TO WIN ME BACK TO THE FATHER.
  • 00:20:04.070 --> 00:20:08.280
  • THAT'S A MAN WORTH WORSHIPING,
  • 00:20:09.010 --> 00:20:11.130
  • THAT IS A KING WORTH SERVING, THAT IS MY SAVOIR.
  • 00:20:11.160 --> 00:20:15.220
  • THAT CROSS THAT HE WAS ON, I LIFT IT UP ABOVE MY LIFE,
  • 00:20:15.250 --> 00:20:20.080
  • ABOVE MY SHAME, ABOVE MY GUILT, ABOVE MY DOUBT.
  • 00:20:20.110 --> 00:20:23.130
  • HE IS MY KING AND I'M NOT THE ONLY PERSON IN HERE
  • 00:20:23.160 --> 00:20:26.210
  • WHO LOVES JESUS TONIGHT.
  • 00:20:26.240 --> 00:20:28.250
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:20:28.280 --> 00:20:36.070
  • TOO MANY MEN INTERPRET THE LAW AS LOSS.
  • 00:20:36.100 --> 00:20:41.280
  • BUT THE LAW WAS LOVE,
  • 00:20:42.010 --> 00:20:44.190
  • BECAUSE IT WAS LOVE THAT SETS BOUNDARIES.
  • 00:20:44.220 --> 00:20:48.100
  • IT'S LOVE THAT PROTECTS.
  • 00:20:48.130 --> 00:20:51.150
  • YOU CAN'T HAVE LOVE WITHOUT BOUNDARIES,
  • 00:20:51.180 --> 00:20:54.130
  • YOU CAN'T HAVE LOVE WITHOUT PROTECTION.
  • 00:20:54.160 --> 00:20:56.150
  • IF I SAY I LOVE MY SON AND THEN LET HIM DO WHATEVER HE WANTS
  • 00:20:56.180 --> 00:21:00.120
  • I DON'T LOVE HIM.
  • 00:21:00.150 --> 00:21:03.010
  • LOVE SAYS, DON'T YOU GO OUT IN THAT STREET.
  • 00:21:03.040 --> 00:21:06.140
  • LOVE SAYS, DON'T TOUCH THE STOVE, IT'S HOT.
  • 00:21:06.170 --> 00:21:10.140
  • LOVE SAYS, GO TO BED!
  • 00:21:10.170 --> 00:21:14.040
  • MAYBE THAT'S JUST ME BUT,
  • 00:21:14.070 --> 00:21:19.070
  • WE GET THIS IDEA THAT SOMEHOW LOVE MEANS YOU CAN JUST
  • 00:21:19.100 --> 00:21:22.130
  • DO WHATEVER YOU WANT AND IF YOU LOVE ME, YOU'LL LET ME.
  • 00:21:22.160 --> 00:21:24.070
  • THAT'S NOT TRUE, IF I LOVE YOU THEN I'LL FIGHT FOR YOU
  • 00:21:24.100 --> 00:21:28.040
  • EVEN WHEN YOU CAN'T FIGHT FOR YOURSELF.
  • 00:21:28.070 --> 00:21:30.140
  • IF I LOVE YOU THEN I'LL GIVE YOU INSTRUCTION
  • 00:21:30.170 --> 00:21:33.100
  • SO THAT YOU DON'T MAKE BAD DECISIONS THAT COULD COST YOU
  • 00:21:33.130 --> 00:21:36.180
  • IN YOUR DESTINY.

  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:21:42.040 --> 00:21:43.110
  • THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT A GOOD LOVE LETTER.
  • 00:21:43.140 --> 00:21:47.120
