  • - SO WE KNOW ABOUT THE AWESOME MAN OF GOD WHO
  • 00:02:28.140 --> 00:02:30.150
  • KIRK COUSINS IS, BUT WHERE DID IT START?
  • 00:02:30.170 --> 00:02:32.190
  • WHEN DID YOU ACCEPT THE LORD?
  • 00:02:32.210 --> 00:02:34.160
  • - WELL, MY DAD BEING A PASTOR I WAS PRESENTED
  • 00:02:34.180 --> 00:02:37.070
  • WITH THE GOSPEL AT A VERY YOUNG AGE SO I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:02:37.090 --> 00:02:39.060
  • THE SPECIFIC AGE, BUT I REMEMBER BEING AT CHURCH
  • 00:02:39.080 --> 00:02:41.070
  • BEFORE THE SERVICE STARTED, AND MY DAD
  • 00:02:41.090 --> 00:02:42.240
  • EXPLAINED TO ME THE GOSPEL, TO ME AND
  • 00:02:42.260 --> 00:02:44.140
  • MY BROTHER.
  • 00:02:44.160 --> 00:02:45.130
  • I WAS PROBABLY 7 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:02:45.150 --> 00:02:46.180
  • AND I REMEMBER SAYING I WANT THAT.
  • 00:02:46.200 --> 00:02:49.210
  • I WANT JESUS TO COME INTO MY LIFE, PAY FOR MY SINS,
  • 00:02:49.230 --> 00:02:53.250
  • ACCEPT THAT I'M A SINNER, AND I WANT A RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:02:53.270 --> 00:02:56.050
  • WITH HIM FOR ETERNITY.
  • 00:02:56.070 --> 00:02:57.240
  • SO I PRAYED THAT PRAYER THAT DAY, BUT WHEN YOU'RE
  • 00:02:57.260 --> 00:03:00.050
  • 7 OR 8 YEARS OLD YOU CAN ONLY UNDERSTAND SO MUCH
  • 00:03:00.070 --> 00:03:02.290
  • OF WHAT THAT ACTUALLY MEANS, SO I REMEMBER
  • 00:03:03.010 --> 00:03:04.070
  • BEING IN HIGH SCHOOL.
  • 00:03:04.090 --> 00:03:06.000
  • I HAD A TEACHER WHO CHALLENGED ME WITH A
  • 00:03:06.020 --> 00:03:07.280
  • VERSE FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT, FIRST
  • 00:03:08.000 --> 00:03:10.010
  • JOHN 2: 6 WHICH SAYS THOSE WHO CLAIM TO BE IN JESUS MUST
  • 00:03:10.030 --> 00:03:12.280
  • WALK AS HE WALKED.
  • 00:03:13.000 --> 00:03:16.020
  • AND I REALIZED HMM, DOES MY WALK, MY LIFE LOOK
  • 00:03:16.040 --> 00:03:20.000
  • LIKE THAT OF JESUS, THE RABBI?
  • 00:03:20.020 --> 00:03:22.090
  • AND SO IT WAS AT THAT POINT I SAID I'M GOING TO
  • 00:03:22.110 --> 00:03:24.290
  • MAKE A COMMITMENT HERE TO NOT JUST BE A FAN OF
  • 00:03:25.010 --> 00:03:27.150
  • JESUS BUT TO BE A FOLLOWER, TO BE A
  • 00:03:27.170 --> 00:03:30.140
  • DISCIPLE, AND IF THAT COSTS ME SOMETHING THEN
  • 00:03:30.160 --> 00:03:33.000
  • THAT COSTS ME SOMETHING, BUT MY LIFE I'M GOING TO
  • 00:03:33.020 --> 00:03:35.200
  • PUT A STAKE IN THE GROUND IS GOING TO BE BUILT ON
  • 00:03:35.220 --> 00:03:37.280
  • THE ROCK AND NOT ON SAND AND BUILT ON THE TRUTH OF
  • 00:03:38.000 --> 00:03:41.060
  • GOD'S WORD, SO IT WAS PROBABLY IN HIGH SCHOOL
  • 00:03:41.080 --> 00:03:42.220
  • WHEN I REALLY MADE THAT COMMITMENT, AND BY GOD'S
  • 00:03:42.240 --> 00:03:45.240
  • GRACE SINCE THEN I HAVE NOT HAD WAVERED.
  • 00:03:45.260 --> 00:03:48.190
  • - IT'S STILL PRETTY SIGNIFICANT BECAUSE BEING
  • 00:03:48.210 --> 00:03:50.170
  • A HIGH SCHOOL STAR, A MULTIPLE SPORTS INDEED AT
  • 00:03:50.190 --> 00:03:53.290
  • THAT ALL THE KIDS ARE YELLING AND SCREAMING AT
  • 00:03:54.010 --> 00:03:56.100
  • YOU, THEY'RE PUTTING YOU UP ON A PLATFORM.
  • 00:03:56.120 --> 00:03:57.280
  • THE LADIES CERTAINLY WANT TO BE WITH THE HIGH
  • 00:03:58.000 --> 00:03:59.210
  • SCHOOL QUARTERBACK OR THE BASKETBALL PLAYER.
  • 00:03:59.230 --> 00:04:02.080
  • HOW DID YOU NAVIGATE THOSE WATERS TO PUT THE
  • 00:04:02.100 --> 00:04:05.260
  • STAKE IN THE GROUND AS YOU INDICATED
  • 00:04:05.280 --> 00:04:07.130
  • THAT IT BECAME REAL TO YOU?
  • 00:04:07.150 --> 00:04:09.250
  • - YEAH, I REMEMBER MY VERY FIRST GAME PLAYING
  • 00:04:09.270 --> 00:04:12.290
  • VARSITY FOOTBALL.
  • 00:04:13.010 --> 00:04:14.030
  • THIS IS MY DREAM, RIGHT?
  • 00:04:14.050 --> 00:04:15.090
  • I DIDN'T REALLY, THE DREAM WAS TO PLAY IN THE
  • 00:04:15.110 --> 00:04:17.040
  • BIG 10 AND PLAY COLLEGE FOOTBALL.
  • 00:04:17.060 --> 00:04:18.250
  • NEVER EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT THE PROS BEING AN OPTION,
  • 00:04:18.270 --> 00:04:20.250
  • BUT VARSITY FOOTBALL I KNEW WAS MORE OF A
  • 00:04:20.270 --> 00:04:23.070
  • REALISTIC GOAL, AND MY VERY FIRST GAME IN
  • 00:04:23.090 --> 00:04:25.120
  • VARSITY FOOTBALL MY JUNIOR YEAR I BROKE MY
  • 00:04:25.140 --> 00:04:27.090
  • ANKLE AND MISSED MUCH OF THAT SEASON.
  • 00:04:27.110 --> 00:04:29.060
  • AND I REMEMBER TELLING MY DAD THAT NOW I WON'T BE
  • 00:04:29.080 --> 00:04:33.180
  • ABLE TO PLAY COLLEGE FOOTBALL.
  • 00:04:33.200 --> 00:04:35.030
  • AND KIND OF COMPLAINING AND BLAMING THE LORD THAT
  • 00:04:35.050 --> 00:04:37.150
  • HE WOULD ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:04:37.170 --> 00:04:38.160
  • - BLAMING THE LORD?
  • 00:04:38.180 --> 00:04:39.250
  • - YEAH, YOU KNOW THOSE EARLY IN YOUR CHRISTIAN
  • 00:04:39.270 --> 00:04:42.140
  • WALK WHEN YOU'RE IMMATURE, AND MY DAD SAID
  • 00:04:42.160 --> 00:04:45.220
  • KIRK, YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THE LORD HAS PLANNED.
  • 00:04:45.240 --> 00:04:47.080
  • HE'S SO MUCH BIGGER THAN A BROKEN ANKLE.
  • 00:04:47.100 --> 00:04:49.000
  • YOU GOT TO REMEMBER THE TRUTH OF HIS WORD,
  • 00:04:49.020 --> 00:04:50.280
  • PROVERBS 3: 5 AND 6, TRUST IN THE LORD WITH
  • 00:04:51.000 --> 00:04:52.280
  • ALL YOUR HEART, DON'T LEAN ON YOUR OWN
  • 00:04:53.000 --> 00:04:54.130
  • UNDERSTANDING, IN ALL YOUR WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE HIM
  • 00:04:54.150 --> 00:04:55.290
  • AND HE WILL DIRECT YOUR STEPS.
  • 00:04:56.010 --> 00:04:57.230
  • AND SO AT THAT MOMENT I SAID I'M GOING TO TAKE
  • 00:04:57.250 --> 00:05:01.080
  • THAT VERSE TO HEART AND BELIEVE IT, AND LET THE
  • 00:05:01.100 --> 00:05:04.030
  • LORD DIRECT MY STEPS, AND IT WILL BE MY JOB TO
  • 00:05:04.050 --> 00:05:06.090
  • TRUST HIM AND TO OBEY HIM, AND WE'LL SEE WHERE
  • 00:05:06.110 --> 00:05:09.020
  • HE TAKES THIS THING.
  • 00:05:09.040 --> 00:05:10.100
  • WELL, LOOKING BACK NOW 15 YEARS HE'S TAKEN IT SO
  • 00:05:10.120 --> 00:05:12.260
  • MUCH FARTHER, AND HE IS LOT BIGGER THAN A
  • 00:05:12.280 --> 00:05:14.280
  • BROKEN ANKLE.
  • 00:05:15.000 --> 00:05:16.130
  • - I WAS ALSO VERY IMPRESSED IN YOUR BOOK
  • 00:05:16.150 --> 00:05:19.220
  • GAME CHANGER WHICH REALLY IS A PRETTY SIGNIFICANT
  • 00:05:19.240 --> 00:05:22.020
  • BOOK FOR A YOUNG GUY FOR A YOUNG PERSON PERIOD TO
  • 00:05:22.040 --> 00:05:24.210
  • BE WRITING.
  • 00:05:24.230 --> 00:05:26.000
  • YOU TALKED ABOUT HOW I BELIEVE YOUR DAD PASTOR
  • 00:05:26.020 --> 00:05:27.230
  • DON, MOM AS WELL TOO I'M SURE, THAT THERE WERE 3
  • 00:05:27.250 --> 00:05:31.200
  • SIGNIFICANT DECISIONS TO BE MADE.
  • 00:05:31.220 --> 00:05:33.270
  • I CALL THEM THE THREE M'S.
  • 00:05:33.290 --> 00:05:35.190
  • SHARE THAT PLEASE.
  • 00:05:35.210 --> 00:05:36.270
  • - YEAH, MASTER, MISSION, AND MATE.
  • 00:05:36.290 --> 00:05:38.220
  • FIRST OF ALL, WHO'S GOING TO BE THE MASTER OF
  • 00:05:38.240 --> 00:05:40.130
  • YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:05:40.150 --> 00:05:41.230
  • AND AS I SAID AT 7 OR 8 YEARS OLD I PRAYED THAT
  • 00:05:41.250 --> 00:05:43.030
  • PRAYER, THEN IN HIGH SCHOOL I MADE THAT
  • 00:05:43.050 --> 00:05:46.020
  • DECISION THAT I'M GOING TO BUILD MY LIFE ON THE
  • 00:05:46.040 --> 00:05:47.260
  • GOSPEL, THE GOOD NEWS THAT JESUS CHRIST DIED
  • 00:05:47.280 --> 00:05:49.190
  • FOR MY SINS AND THE TRUTH OF HIS WORD IS WHAT I'M
  • 00:05:49.210 --> 00:05:51.170
  • GOING TO BUILD MY LIFE ON.
  • 00:05:51.190 --> 00:05:52.290
  • AND THEN YOUR MATE, WHO ARE YOU GOING TO MARRY?
  • 00:05:53.010 --> 00:05:55.200
  • WHO ARE YOU GOING TO DO LIFE WITH ULTIMATELY.
  • 00:05:55.220 --> 00:05:57.120
  • IT'S SO IMPORTANT THAT YOU'RE EQUALLY YOKED, SO
  • 00:05:57.140 --> 00:05:59.110
  • MY WIFE JULIE IS A BELIEVER AND COMES FROM A
  • 00:05:59.130 --> 00:06:03.140
  • GREAT FAMILY, GREAT STOCK, SO THAT'S BEEN A
  • 00:06:03.160 --> 00:06:05.130
  • TRUE BLESSING.
  • 00:06:05.150 --> 00:06:06.290
  • WHEN YOU SEE THE WAY GOD INTENDED MARRIAGE TO BE,
  • 00:06:07.010 --> 00:06:09.120
  • IT'S BEEN A REALLY BLESSED THING FOR BOTH OF US, AND
  • 00:06:09.140 --> 00:06:11.120
  • THEN YOUR MISSION.
  • 00:06:11.140 --> 00:06:13.000
  • WHAT'S GOING TO BE YOUR PASSION IN LIFE?
  • 00:06:13.020 --> 00:06:14.280
  • WHEN YOU GET UP IN THE MORNING, WHAT ARE YOU
  • 00:06:15.000 --> 00:06:16.200
  • GOING TO DEVOTE YOUR HANDS TO?
  • 00:06:16.220 --> 00:06:17.290
  • WHAT ARE THE GIFTINGS THAT GOD HAS GIVEN YOU,
  • 00:06:18.010 --> 00:06:19.070
  • AND HOW CAN YOU USE THOSE GIFTINGS TO BLESS OTHERS?
  • 00:06:19.090 --> 00:06:21.090
  • AND FOR THE TIME BEING IT'S BEEN PRETTY CLEAR
  • 00:06:21.110 --> 00:06:24.100
  • THAT THE LORD HAS GIVEN ME AN ABILITY TO THROW
  • 00:06:24.120 --> 00:06:25.180
  • A FOOTBALL.
  • 00:06:25.200 --> 00:06:26.240
  • HE'S GIVEN ME AN ABILITY TO PLAY QUARTERBACK WITH
  • 00:06:26.260 --> 00:06:28.100
  • SOME OTHER TRAITS THAT ARE INVOLVED IN THAT.
  • 00:06:28.120 --> 00:06:31.240
  • AND SO UNTIL HE TELLS ME OTHERWISE, I'M GOING TO
  • 00:06:31.260 --> 00:06:34.000
  • KEEP TRYING TO DEVELOP THIS QUARTERBACKING SKILL
  • 00:06:34.020 --> 00:06:36.050
  • AND USE THAT PLATFORM THAT HE'S GIVEN ME AS A
  • 00:06:36.070 --> 00:06:38.070
  • RESULT OF PLAYING FOOTBALL TO HOPEFULLY
  • 00:06:38.090 --> 00:06:40.280
  • POINT PEOPLE TO HIM.
  • 00:06:41.000 --> 00:06:42.100
  • - CERTAINLY FOOTBALL FANS AROUND THE COUNTRY

  • FOOTBALL CAMP IN HOLLAND, MICHIGAN WHERE HE

  • FOR LIFE.
  • 00:07:52.010 --> 00:07:53.130
  • BOTH KIRK AND HIS WIFE JULIE ARE COMMITTED TO

  • KIRK COUSINS FOUNDATION.

  • SUPPORTING THOSE IN NEED AND SHARING THE GOOD NEWS
  • 00:08:02.210 --> 00:08:05.240
  • OF THE GOSPEL IS THE COUSINS WAY OF GIVING
  • 00:08:05.260 --> 00:08:08.140
  • THANKS TO GOD AND MAKING A DIFFERENCE BOTH ON AND
  • 00:08:08.160 --> 00:08:11.100
  • OFF THE FOOTBALL FIELD.
  • 00:08:11.120 --> 00:08:13.000
  • KIRK COUSINS HERE ON PRAISE.
  • 00:08:13.020 --> 00:08:18.130
  • - SO THERE'S AN AWFUL LOT THAT GOES
  • 00:08:18.150 --> 00:08:19.250
  • BEHIND THE TREK IF YOU WILL THAT KIRK MADE IT TO
  • 00:08:19.270 --> 00:08:22.060
  • THE HIGHEST LEVEL IN FOOTBALL, THAT BEING A
  • 00:08:22.080 --> 00:08:24.070
  • PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL PLAYER.
  • 00:08:24.090 --> 00:08:25.190
  • AND YES, FOOTBALL FANS KNOW THAT HE WAS THE
  • 00:08:25.210 --> 00:08:28.100
  • FIRST PLAYER, THE FIRST QUARTERBACK TO SIGN A
  • 00:08:28.120 --> 00:08:32.110
  • FULLY GUARANTEED DEAL, THREE YEARS, 84 MILLION
  • 00:08:32.130 --> 00:08:35.170
  • DOLLARS ALL GUARANTEED.
  • 00:08:35.190 --> 00:08:37.090
  • THAT WAS SIGNIFICANT AND KIRK, YOU TALK VERY
  • 00:08:37.110 --> 00:08:40.060
  • CANDIDLY IN YOUR BOOK TOO AS WELL ABOUT THE UPS AND
  • 00:08:40.080 --> 00:08:43.060
  • DOWNS, THE FITS AND STARTS, BUT FAITH ON THE
  • 00:08:43.080 --> 00:08:45.270
  • FIELD HAS BEEN VERY IMPORTANT TO YOU.
  • 00:08:45.290 --> 00:08:48.020
  • YOU TALK ABOUT THE SIMILARITIES BETWEEN
  • 00:08:48.040 --> 00:08:49.240
  • FAITH AND WHAT YOU'VE GONE THROUGH
  • 00:08:49.260 --> 00:08:52.040
  • FOOTBALL EXPERIENTIALLY.
  • 00:08:52.060 --> 00:08:53.070
  • TALK ABOUT SOME OF THOSE THINGS.
  • 00:08:53.090 --> 00:08:54.160
  • - WELL, I REALLY BELIEVE THAT EVERY EXPERIENCE IS
  • 00:08:54.180 --> 00:08:57.230
  • A SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:08:57.250 --> 00:08:59.020
  • EVERYTHING DECISION IS A SPIRITUAL DECISION.
  • 00:08:59.040 --> 00:09:00.250
  • SO IT'S NEVER BEEN SOMETHING I CAN
  • 00:09:00.270 --> 00:09:02.140
  • COMPARTMENTALIZE AND SAY THIS IS FOOTBALL, AND
  • 00:09:02.160 --> 00:09:05.010
  • THIS IS MY FAITH AND THEY'RE SEPARATE.
  • 00:09:05.030 --> 00:09:06.170
  • FOR ME THEY JUST MESH TOGETHER, AND AS ONE KID
  • 00:09:06.190 --> 00:09:12.040
  • ASKED ME WHEN I SPOKE SOMEWHERE, THEY SAID DO
  • 00:09:12.060 --> 00:09:14.000
  • YOU PRAY FOR GAMES?
  • 00:09:14.020 --> 00:09:15.100
  • AND I SAID, YES, BUT I ALSO PRAY DURING THE
  • 00:09:15.120 --> 00:09:17.220
  • FIRST QUARTER AND THE SECOND QUARTER AND
  • 00:09:17.240 --> 00:09:19.050
  • HALF-TIME AND MY POINT BEING THAT IT'S JUST AN
  • 00:09:19.070 --> 00:09:22.030
  • ON GOING RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, AND WHETHER I'M
  • 00:09:22.050 --> 00:09:24.170
  • ON A WALK WITH MY WIFE OR PLAYING A BIG TIME
  • 00:09:24.190 --> 00:09:27.050
  • FOOTBALL GAME, I JUST SEE MYSELF RIGHT THERE WITH
  • 00:09:27.070 --> 00:09:30.120
  • THE LORD WALKING WITH HIM, AND SO IT'S A GREAT
  • 00:09:30.140 --> 00:09:34.250
  • OPPORTUNITY EVERY DAY TO SHINE MY LIGHT HERE AS I
  • 00:09:34.270 --> 00:09:37.050
  • PLAY FOR THE MINNESOTA VIKINGS AND SEE THIS AS
  • 00:09:37.070 --> 00:09:40.150
  • MY MISSION FIELD AND MY OPPORTUNITY TO HOPEFULLY
  • 00:09:40.170 --> 00:09:44.240
  • REFLECT THE LOVE OF JESUS TO THOSE AROUND ME.
  • 00:09:44.260 --> 00:09:47.050
  • IT HAS BEEN A PRIVILEGE TO PLAY FOOTBALL IN THE
  • 00:09:47.070 --> 00:09:49.110
  • BIG TEN, AND IT'S HERE IN THIS PLACE OF PRIVILEGE
  • 00:09:49.130 --> 00:09:51.250
  • WHERE PERHAPS DANGER LIES.
  • 00:09:51.270 --> 00:09:54.020
  • I HAVE BEEN TAUGHT THAT HUMAN NATURE IS SUCH THAT
  • 00:09:54.040 --> 00:09:56.210
  • THE PLACE OF PRIVILEGE MOST OFTEN AND MOST
  • 00:09:56.230 --> 00:09:58.110
  • NATURALLY LEADS TO A SENSE OF ENTITLEMENT, THE
  • 00:09:58.130 --> 00:10:01.210
  • NOTION THAT I DESERVE TO BE TREATED AS SPECIAL
  • 00:10:01.230 --> 00:10:03.150
  • BECAUSE I'M PRIVILEGED.
  • 00:10:03.170 --> 00:10:05.130
  • THE TRUTH IS PRIVILEGE SHOULD NEVER LEAD
  • 00:10:05.150 --> 00:10:08.030
  • TO ENTITLEMENT.
  • 00:10:08.050 --> 00:10:09.120
  • I'VE BEEN RAISED AND TAUGHT TO BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:10:09.140 --> 00:10:12.170
  • PRIVILEGE SHOULD LEAD TO RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:10:12.190 --> 00:10:13.250
  • IN FACT, TO GREATER RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:10:13.270 --> 00:10:15.260
  • THE BIBLE SAYS IN LUKE 12: 48, FROM EVERYONE WHO
  • 00:10:15.280 --> 00:10:19.250
  • HAS BEEN GIVEN MUCH, MUCH WILL BE DEMANDED AND FROM
  • 00:10:19.270 --> 00:10:22.080
  • THE ONE WHO HAS BEEN ENTRUSTED WITH MUCH, MUCH
  • 00:10:22.100 --> 00:10:24.270
  • MORE WILL BE ASKED.
  • 00:10:24.290 --> 00:10:26.280
  • - ONE OF THE THINGS THAT REALLY TOUCHED MY HEART
  • 00:10:27.000 --> 00:10:28.100
  • AS WELL, BIG TEN MEDIA DAY.
  • 00:10:28.120 --> 00:10:30.100
  • HUGE EVENT.
  • 00:10:30.120 --> 00:10:31.260
  • I'LL LET YOU PAINT THE PICTURE ON THAT, AND YOU
  • 00:10:31.280 --> 00:10:33.280
  • WERE SELECTED TO BE THE PLAYER REPRESENTING ABOUT
  • 00:10:34.000 --> 00:10:37.050
  • SOME 1200 PLAYERS IN THE BIG TEN, AND YOU PUT A
  • 00:10:37.070 --> 00:10:40.140
  • LOT OF TIME INTO THAT PRESENTATION, THAT SPEECH
  • 00:10:40.160 --> 00:10:43.110
  • IF YOU WILL.
  • 00:10:43.130 --> 00:10:44.140
  • REALLY MOVED BY THE WAY YOU CLOSE IT.
  • 00:10:44.160 --> 00:10:46.150
  • NO APPREHENSION BY CLOSING IT WITH A FAITH
  • 00:10:46.170 --> 00:10:49.100
  • MESSAGE IN A SECULAR ENVIRONMENT?
  • 00:10:49.120 --> 00:10:51.270
  • - SURE.
  • 00:10:51.290 --> 00:10:53.050
  • WELL, I THINK THE RING OF TRUTH IS SO IMPORTANT.
  • 00:10:53.070 --> 00:10:55.180
  • TRUTH WITH A CAPITAL T, AND THERE ARE TIMES WHEN
  • 00:10:55.200 --> 00:10:59.290
  • YOU PULL OUT SCRIPTURE IN A SECULAR EVENT, BUT THE
  • 00:11:00.030 --> 00:11:03.060
  • PEOPLE LISTENING CANNOT DENY THAT WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:11:03.080 --> 00:11:05.090
  • SAYING IS TRUE.
  • 00:11:05.110 --> 00:11:07.030
  • THE FACT IS TO WHOM MUCH IS GIVEN MUCH
  • 00:11:07.050 --> 00:11:09.160
  • IS REQUIRED.
  • 00:11:09.180 --> 00:11:11.000
  • WHETHER YOU WALK WITH JESUS OR NOT, WHETHER YOU
  • 00:11:11.020 --> 00:11:13.210
  • BELIEVE THE BIBLE TO BE TRUE OR NOT, THAT'S
  • 00:11:13.230 --> 00:11:15.010
  • JUST TRUE.
  • 00:11:15.030 --> 00:11:16.170
  • TO WHOM MUCH IS GIVEN, MUCH IS REQUIRED, SO I
  • 00:11:16.190 --> 00:11:18.150
  • WANTED TO CONVEY THAT MESSAGE ABOUT PRIVILEGE
  • 00:11:18.170 --> 00:11:21.050
  • AND RESPONSIBILITY TO MY FELLOW STUDENT ATHLETES
  • 00:11:21.070 --> 00:11:24.200
  • AND TO THE PEOPLE IN ATTENDANCE, AND I THINK
  • 00:11:24.220 --> 00:11:28.060
  • WHETHER YOU BELIEVE THE TRUTH OF THE BIBLE OR
  • 00:11:28.080 --> 00:11:30.080
  • NOT, THAT CONCEPT PEOPLE COULD UNDERSTAND IN A
  • 00:11:30.100 --> 00:11:32.000
  • SECULAR CROWD.
  • 00:11:32.020 --> 00:11:34.160
  • - SO MUCH SO THAT THE OTHER COACHES IN THE BIG
  • 00:11:34.180 --> 00:11:37.100
  • TEN, MANY OF THEM USE THAT SPEECH TO MOTIVATE
  • 00:11:37.120 --> 00:11:39.020
  • THEIR PLAYERS AS WELL, TOO.
  • 00:11:39.040 --> 00:11:40.190
  • BUT I'M ALSO STRUCK WITH IN YOUR BOOK YOU
  • 00:11:40.210 --> 00:11:43.080
  • TALKED ABOUT ROLE MODELS, BEING CAREFUL ABOUT THE
  • 00:11:43.100 --> 00:11:45.110
  • DECISIONS YOU MAKE.
  • 00:11:45.130 --> 00:11:47.000
  • SHARE THAT STORY.
  • 00:11:47.020 --> 00:11:48.090
  • - WELL, WE ALL ARE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE, AND
  • 00:11:48.110 --> 00:11:51.140
  • YOU CAN LEARN FROM GOOD EXAMPLES AND FROM
  • 00:11:51.160 --> 00:11:53.110
  • BAD EXAMPLES.
  • 00:11:53.130 --> 00:11:54.160
  • - BUT SOMETHING YOUR DAD SAID, RIGHT?
  • 00:11:54.180 --> 00:11:55.190
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:11:55.210 --> 00:11:56.250
  • BUT YOU HAVE TO BE DISCERNING AND UNDERSTAND
  • 00:11:56.270 --> 00:11:58.050
  • OKAY, WHO DO I WANT TO BE LIKE?
  • 00:11:58.070 --> 00:12:01.000
  • AND WHEN I ARRIVED AT MICHIGAN STATE, YOU WANT
  • 00:12:01.020 --> 00:12:02.190
  • TO BE LIKE THE GUYS WHO ARE SENIORS WHO ARE
  • 00:12:02.210 --> 00:12:04.050
  • STARTING, WHO ARE BIG MEN ON CAMPUS, SO NATURALLY
  • 00:12:04.070 --> 00:12:06.090
  • YOU'RE GOING TO BE LOOK TO THOSE PEOPLE IN THE
  • 00:12:06.110 --> 00:12:08.080
  • LOCKER ROOM AND SAY, HOW DO THEY GO ABOUT
  • 00:12:08.100 --> 00:12:09.290
  • THEIR BUSINESS?
  • 00:12:10.010 --> 00:12:10.250
  • HOW DO THEY DO LIFE?
  • 00:12:10.270 --> 00:12:12.040
  • AND I WANT TO COPY THAT BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE I
  • 00:12:12.060 --> 00:12:13.140
  • WANT TO GO.
  • 00:12:13.160 --> 00:12:14.240
  • IF THEY'VE GONE THERE, THAT'S WHERE I WANT TO GO.
  • 00:12:14.260 --> 00:12:18.230
  • AND I HAD ONE TEAMMATE WHO WHEN I ARRIVED DIDN'T
  • 00:12:18.250 --> 00:12:20.100
  • WELCOME ME TOO WELL.
  • 00:12:20.120 --> 00:12:21.260
  • HE SAID, WHY ARE YOU HERE EARLY?
  • 00:12:21.280 --> 00:12:23.170
  • ONCE YOU COME HERE, THE COACHES OWN YOU.
  • 00:12:23.190 --> 00:12:25.160
  • YOUR LIFE IS OVER.
  • 00:12:25.180 --> 00:12:26.240
  • YOU SHOULD WAIT UNTIL THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND
  • 00:12:26.260 --> 00:12:28.250
  • TO COME.
  • 00:12:28.270 --> 00:12:30.040
  • AND NOT ONLY DID I KIND OF FEEL DISCOURAGED ABOUT
  • 00:12:30.060 --> 00:12:32.240
  • MY FUTURE AT MICHIGAN STATE AS A RESULT BECAUSE
  • 00:12:32.260 --> 00:12:34.100
  • HE DIDN'T SOUND TOO UP ON IT, BUT I ALSO JUST FELT
  • 00:12:34.120 --> 00:12:36.110
  • LIKE MAYBE I SHOULDN'T BE HERE.
  • 00:12:36.130 --> 00:12:38.060
  • MAYBE I DIDN'T BELONG.
  • 00:12:38.080 --> 00:12:39.130
  • WELL, SHORTLY THEREAFTER, ANOTHER TEAMMATE WHO HAD
  • 00:12:39.150 --> 00:12:42.070
  • HEARD THAT INTERCHANGE WHO WAS ALSO AN UPPER
  • 00:12:42.090 --> 00:12:43.250
  • CLASSMAN PUT HIS ARM AROUND ME AND SAID HEY
  • 00:12:43.270 --> 00:12:45.260
  • KIRK, I HEARD WHAT HE SAID.
  • 00:12:45.280 --> 00:12:47.020
  • DON'T LISTEN TO HIM.
  • 00:12:47.040 --> 00:12:48.190
  • THE FACT THAT YOU'RE HERE EARLY IS A GREAT START TO
  • 00:12:48.210 --> 00:12:51.030
  • WHAT YOU WANT YOUR CAREER TO LOOK LIKE.
  • 00:12:51.050 --> 00:12:52.280
  • YOU JUST KEEP WORKING, KEEP STACKING DAYS UP,
  • 00:12:53.000 --> 00:12:55.090
  • AND GOOD THINGS ARE AHEAD.
  • 00:12:55.110 --> 00:12:57.070
  • AND HE CONTINUED TO BE A VOICE OF ENCOURAGEMENT
  • 00:12:57.090 --> 00:12:59.250
  • THROUGH SOME DAYS WHERE I WAS VERY DISCOURAGED,
  • 00:12:59.270 --> 00:13:02.030
  • FRUSTRATED AT PRACTICE, DIDN'T THINK I WAS
  • 00:13:02.050 --> 00:13:03.160
  • PLAYING VERY WELL.
  • 00:13:03.180 --> 00:13:04.250
  • AND HE WOULD SPEAK TRUTH INTO MY LIFE AND
  • 00:13:04.270 --> 00:13:06.130
  • ENCOURAGE ME.
  • 00:13:06.150 --> 00:13:07.290
  • HIS NAME WAS JUSTIN KERSHAW, AND HE JUST HAD
  • 00:13:08.010 --> 00:13:10.260
  • A PHENOMENAL IMPACT, SO I ENDED UP BEING VOTED A
  • 00:13:10.280 --> 00:13:13.020
  • CAPTAIN AS A SOPHOMORE WHICH IS KIND OF A RARE
  • 00:13:13.040 --> 00:13:15.060
  • THING TO HAVE HAPPEN.
  • 00:13:15.080 --> 00:13:16.160
  • I HADN'T EVEN STARTED A GAME YET AND THEY VOTED
  • 00:13:16.180 --> 00:13:18.030
  • ME CAPTAIN AND WAS CAPTAIN FOR THREE YEARS,
  • 00:13:18.050 --> 00:13:19.230
  • AND MANY PEOPLE WOULD ASK ME AS TIME PASSED HOW WERE
  • 00:13:19.250 --> 00:13:21.180
  • YOU VOTED CAPTAIN SO EARLY?
  • 00:13:21.200 --> 00:13:23.170
  • HOW WERE YOU EFFECTIVELY LEADING
  • 00:13:23.190 --> 00:13:25.170
  • YOUR TEAMMATES?
  • 00:13:25.190 --> 00:13:26.290
  • AND I WOULD SAY HONESTLY I JUST SAY, WHAT WOULD
  • 00:13:27.010 --> 00:13:29.150
  • JUSTIN KERSHAW DO?
  • 00:13:29.170 --> 00:13:30.290
  • AND I WOULD JUST SAY WHATEVER HE DID TO ME

  • AS WELL?
  • 00:15:57.260 --> 00:15:59.010

  • WE'RE PLAYING IN A GAME.
  • 00:15:59.290 --> 00:16:04.220
  • I PLAYED WELL.

  • AGAINST NOTRE DAME, RIGHT.
  • 00:16:08.170 --> 00:16:09.220
  • AND AT THE VERY END OF THE GAME WE'RE TIED, AND
  • 00:16:09.240 --> 00:16:12.100
  • I MADE A CRITICAL MISTAKE AND THREW AN INTERCEPTION
  • 00:16:12.120 --> 00:16:14.040
  • AND IT COST US THE GAME.
  • 00:16:14.060 --> 00:16:19.030
  • - INTERCEPTION.
  • 00:16:19.050 --> 00:16:20.100
  • KYLE MCCARTHY.
  • 00:16:20.120 --> 00:16:22.210
  • HE'S STILL GOING.
  • 00:16:22.230 --> 00:16:26.150
  • WITH A CUTBACK AND TACKLED AT MIDFIELD.
  • 00:16:26.170 --> 00:16:28.250
  • MR. DEPENDABLE, KYLE MCCARTHY.
  • 00:16:28.270 --> 00:16:31.280
  • - I REMEMBER BEING HIT AFTER I THREW THE BALL
  • 00:16:32.000 --> 00:16:33.190
  • AND HITTING THE GROUND HARD AND COULDN'T SEE
  • 00:16:33.210 --> 00:16:37.020
  • WHERE THE BALL LANDED BUT I HEARD THE SOUND OF
  • 00:16:37.040 --> 00:16:38.200
  • 80.000 PEOPLE AT NOTRE DAME STADIUM CHEERING,
  • 00:16:38.220 --> 00:16:40.220
  • AND I REALIZED I HAD THROWN AN INTERCEPTION.
  • 00:16:40.240 --> 00:16:42.170
  • - AND THE PRESSURE ON COUSINS THOUGH FORCED HIM
  • 00:16:42.190 --> 00:16:44.130
  • TO MAKE AN ERROR THROW.
  • 00:16:44.150 --> 00:16:46.120
  • - KIRK COUSINS HAS MADE NOTHING BUT GOOD
  • 00:16:46.140 --> 00:16:48.140
  • DECISIONS TODAY UNTIL THAT ONE.
  • 00:16:48.160 --> 00:16:50.220
  • - SO AS I'M WALKING OFF THE FIELD I'M PULLING
  • 00:16:50.240 --> 00:16:52.220
  • GRASS OUT OF MY HELMET AND HEARING THAT
  • 00:16:52.240 --> 00:16:55.160
  • DEAFENING SOUND OF 80.000 PEOPLE CHEERING MY
  • 00:16:55.180 --> 00:16:57.240
  • FAILURE, I REMEMBER THINKING THANK YOU, GOD,
  • 00:16:57.260 --> 00:17:01.150
  • THAT MY LIFE IS NOT BUILT ON FOOTBALL.
  • 00:17:01.170 --> 00:17:04.160
  • - YOU ACTUALLY THOUGHT ABOUT THAT THEN?
  • 00:17:04.180 --> 00:17:06.090
  • - WELL, AGAIN EVERYTHING IS SPIRITUAL, RIGHT?
  • 00:17:06.110 --> 00:17:09.010
  • SO IN THOSE DEEP DARK MOMENTS ON THE FOOTBALL
  • 00:17:09.030 --> 00:17:10.220
  • FIELD, I TAKE IT BACK TO MY FAITH AND TRY TO FIND
  • 00:17:10.240 --> 00:17:13.060
  • HOPE AND COMFORT IN THAT, AND I JUST SAY LORD, YOU
  • 00:17:13.080 --> 00:17:15.050
  • AREN'T SURPRISED BY THIS.
  • 00:17:15.070 --> 00:17:17.070
  • YOU KNEW THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN TODAY.
  • 00:17:17.090 --> 00:17:18.220
  • YOU'VE ALLOWED ME TO EXPERIENCE THIS, AND
  • 00:17:18.240 --> 00:17:20.050
  • WHILE I'M REALLY UPSET ABOUT IT, THANK YOU THAT
  • 00:17:20.070 --> 00:17:23.160
  • MY LIFE IS BIGGER THAN JUST A FOOTBALL GAME
  • 00:17:23.180 --> 00:17:25.110
  • BECAUSE IF IT WAS JUST A FOOTBALL GAME, MY LIFE
  • 00:17:25.130 --> 00:17:26.200
  • JUST CRUMBLED.
  • 00:17:26.220 --> 00:17:27.290
  • THAT'S BUILDING YOUR LIFE ON THE SAND.
  • 00:17:28.010 --> 00:17:29.200
  • BUT I BELIEVE GOD.
  • 00:17:29.220 --> 00:17:31.270
  • I CHOOSE TO BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE A PLAN THAT
  • 00:17:31.290 --> 00:17:33.130
  • YOU'RE GOING TO USE THIS FOR MY GOOD AND FOR
  • 00:17:33.150 --> 00:17:35.060
  • YOUR GLORY.
  • 00:17:35.080 --> 00:17:36.130
  • SO AS TIME WOULD PASS, I LOOK BACK AND SEE THAT
  • 00:17:36.150 --> 00:17:40.040
  • AGAIN MUCH LIKE THE BROKEN ANKLE WAS NOT TOO
  • 00:17:40.060 --> 00:17:42.110
  • BIG FOR GOD, A BIG INTERCEPTION THAT COST
  • 00:17:42.130 --> 00:17:44.230
  • OUR TEAM THE GAME WAS NOT TOO BIG FOR GOD, AND HE
  • 00:17:44.250 --> 00:17:46.190
  • WAS ABLE TO REDEEM THAT THROUGH THE REST OF MY
  • 00:17:46.210 --> 00:17:49.000
  • CAREER AT MICHIGAN STATE AND BEYOND.
  • 00:17:49.020 --> 00:17:50.280
  • SO I JUST CONTINUE TO TRUST HIM, BUT IT DOESN'T
  • 00:17:51.000 --> 00:17:54.060
  • MEAN HE'S NOT GOING TO ALLOW THOSE MOMENTS WHERE
  • 00:17:54.080 --> 00:17:56.080
  • 80.000 PEOPLE CHEER YOUR FAILURE.
  • 00:17:56.100 --> 00:17:58.020
  • THAT'S STILL SOMETIMES PART OF THE JOURNEY.
  • 00:17:58.040 --> 00:18:01.060
  • - WHAT WAS THE UP, COMING OFF OF THAT
  • 00:18:01.080 --> 00:18:02.230
  • EXPERIENCE? WHEN DID YOU EXPERIENCE A HIGH?
  • 00:18:02.250 --> 00:18:04.230
  • - IT WAS REALLY THE NEXT SEASON, MY JUNIOR YEAR
  • 00:18:04.250 --> 00:18:07.010
  • WE WENT ELEVEN AND ONE. WE WERE ABLE TO WIN
  • 00:18:07.030 --> 00:18:08.150
  • THE BIG TEN CHAMPIONSHIP, AND MUCH OF
  • 00:18:08.170 --> 00:18:10.240
  • OUR SUCCESS THAT YEAR CAME FROM THE ADVERSITY
  • 00:18:10.260 --> 00:18:13.050
  • WE'D FACED THE YEAR BEFORE.
  • 00:18:13.070 --> 00:18:15.110
  • THEN THE LORD REALLY BLESSED BOTH MY JUNIOR
  • 00:18:15.130 --> 00:18:16.280
  • YEAR AND MY SENIOR YEAR WITH A LOT OF WINS,
  • 00:18:17.000 --> 00:18:19.180
  • A LOT OF SUCCESS, SO MUCH SO THAT I WAS ABLE TO BE
  • 00:18:19.200 --> 00:18:23.060
  • IN CONTENTION TO BE DRAFTED AND PLAY IN THE PROS.
  • 00:18:23.080 --> 00:18:25.170
  • BUT WE HAD PRAYED FOR MANY YEARS, IN MY
  • 00:18:25.190 --> 00:18:27.290
  • FOOTBALL CAREER IN COLLEGE, EPHESIANS 3:20
  • 00:18:28.010 --> 00:18:30.150
  • WHICH SAYS "NOW TO HIM WHO CAN DO IMMEASURABLY
  • 00:18:30.170 --> 00:18:32.260
  • MORE THAN ALL WE COULD ASK OR IMAGINE,
  • 00:18:32.280 --> 00:18:34.150
  • TO HIM BE THE GLORY."
  • 00:18:34.170 --> 00:18:36.000
  • AND WE THOUGHT LORD, YOU'RE CAPABLE OF DOING
  • 00:18:36.020 --> 00:18:38.080
  • MORE THAN WE CAN ASK OR IMAGINE, SO WE WOULD ASK,
  • 00:18:38.100 --> 00:18:41.080
  • WE WOULD IMAGINE WHAT MAYBE HE CAN DO, AND YET
  • 00:18:41.100 --> 00:18:43.220
  • WHAT HE HAS DONE IN MY FOOTBALL CAREER AND
  • 00:18:43.240 --> 00:18:46.180
  • REALLY BEYOND IN MY FAMILY, IT GOES BEYOND
  • 00:18:46.200 --> 00:18:50.180
  • WHAT WE COULD HAVE ASKED OR IMAGINED.
  • 00:18:50.200 --> 00:18:52.130
  • SO HE KEEPS WOWING US EVERY TURN WE TAKE.
  • 00:18:52.150 --> 00:18:55.190
  • - AS YOU TALK ABOUT THE LESSONS LEARNED IN THE
  • 00:18:55.210 --> 00:18:57.280
  • WORLD OF FOOTBALL IN GENERAL, CERTAINLY NOW AT
  • 00:18:58.000 --> 00:19:00.160
  • THE PROFESSIONAL LEVEL, I'M THINKING ABOUT A
  • 00:19:00.180 --> 00:19:03.000
  • NUMBER OF FOLKS OUT THERE IN TV LAND WHO THINK
  • 00:19:03.020 --> 00:19:05.100
  • KIRK'S GOT IT GOING.
  • 00:19:05.120 --> 00:19:06.270
  • HE'S GOT MODEL GOOD LOOKS, HE'S PLAYING,
  • 00:19:06.290 --> 00:19:09.070
  • HE'S THE QUARTERBACK FOR THE MINNESOTA VIKINGS
  • 00:19:09.090 --> 00:19:11.110
  • NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE, BUT I'M REMINDED ALSO YOU
  • 00:19:11.130 --> 00:19:15.040
  • USE AN EXAMPLE OF HOW MANY SCOUTS WHO WILL HAVE
  • 00:19:15.060 --> 00:19:19.080
  • THE PROTOTYPICAL QUARTERBACK THEY'RE LOOKING FOR,
  • 00:19:19.100 --> 00:19:22.020
  • 6'-4", 210, 220, RUNS A 4.5, 40 YARD DASH,
  • 00:19:22.040 --> 00:19:27.110
  • GREAT STRONG ARM, BUT NONE OF THOSE THINGS
  • 00:19:27.130 --> 00:19:30.210
  • PHASED YOU AND YET HERE YOU ARE AT THE
  • 00:19:30.230 --> 00:19:33.000
  • PINNACLE IN PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL, BUT YOU ALSO
  • 00:19:33.020 --> 00:19:36.250
  • TALKED ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF TEAM
  • 00:19:36.270 --> 00:19:39.060
  • CHEMISTRY HELPING YOU GUYS TO WIN.
  • 00:19:39.080 --> 00:19:41.160
  • - YEAH, FIRST OF ALL I THINK THAT GOD HAS
  • 00:19:41.180 --> 00:19:44.140
  • ALLOWED MY STORY TO BE ONE SUCH THAT I LOOK BACK
  • 00:19:44.160 --> 00:19:47.100
  • AND I HAVE TO SAY GOD DID IT.
  • 00:19:47.120 --> 00:19:49.080
  • - REALLY? NO QUESTIONS ABOUT IT, HUH?
  • 00:19:49.100 --> 00:19:51.090
  • - YEAH, I THINK IF I HAD BEEN THE GUY WHO WAS THE
  • 00:19:51.110 --> 00:19:53.260
  • FIRST OVERALL PICK AND WAS 6'-6" AND 240 POUNDS
  • 00:19:53.280 --> 00:19:57.130
  • AND KIND OF HAD ALL THE TANGIBLES, THAT I'D BE
  • 00:19:57.150 --> 00:20:00.280
  • ABLE TO SAY IT MAKES SENSE THAT THIS HAS
  • 00:20:01.000 --> 00:20:02.210
  • HAPPENED BECAUSE IT WAS SUPPOSED TO.
  • 00:20:02.230 --> 00:20:05.040
  • I THINK THE LORD HAS DONE IT IN A WAY FROM MY
  • 00:20:05.060 --> 00:20:06.290
  • COLLEGE RECRUITING PROCESS NOT HAVING A LOT
  • 00:20:07.010 --> 00:20:08.220
  • OF MOMENTUM, BEING A FOURTH ROUND PICK AND THE
  • 00:20:08.240 --> 00:20:11.080
  • 8TH QUARTERBACK TAKEN IN THE DRAFT CLASS I WAS IN,
  • 00:20:11.100 --> 00:20:14.050
  • BEING A BACKUP FOR A FEW YEARS, EVEN GETTING
  • 00:20:14.070 --> 00:20:16.050
  • BENCHED WHEN I FIRST STARTED PLAYING IN THE
  • 00:20:16.070 --> 00:20:18.070
  • PROS, I THINK YOU LOOK BACK AND SAY ONLY GOD,
  • 00:20:18.090 --> 00:20:22.170
  • AND HE DESERVES THE CREDIT, HE DESERVES THE
  • 00:20:22.190 --> 00:20:24.060
  • GLORY, BUT HE CERTAINLY BUILT MY CIRCUMSTANCES
  • 00:20:24.080 --> 00:20:26.210
  • SUCH THAT I WOULDN'T FORGET IT.
  • 00:20:26.230 --> 00:20:28.120
  • AND THEN ALSO THE STYLE OF PLAY THAT I HAVE AS A
  • 00:20:28.140 --> 00:20:32.110
  • QUARTERBACK IS VERY DEPENDENT ON THOSE AROUND ME.
  • 00:20:32.130 --> 00:20:34.210
  • IF I'M NOT WELL PROTECTED, IF RECEIVERS
  • 00:20:34.230 --> 00:20:36.010
  • AREN'T GETTING OPEN, IF THE COACHES AREN'T DOING
  • 00:20:36.030 --> 00:20:37.290
  • A GREAT JOB CALLING PLAYS, I PROBABLY AM NOT
  • 00:20:38.010 --> 00:20:40.060
  • GOING TO PLAY IT AT THE LEVEL I WANT TO.
  • 00:20:40.080 --> 00:20:44.110
  • WHEN I'M ABLE TO BE AT MY BEST IS WHEN I'VE GOT A
  • 00:20:44.130 --> 00:20:47.000
  • LOT OF HELP AROUND ME FROM LINEMEN, RECEIVERS,
  • 00:20:47.020 --> 00:20:49.060
  • COACHES AND THEN MY BEST CAN SHINE.
  • 00:20:49.080 --> 00:20:51.280
  • SO I'M REMINDED OF THAT EVERY DAY OF MY
  • 00:20:52.000 --> 00:20:54.140
  • DEPENDENCE ON THOSE AROUND ME.
  • 00:20:54.160 --> 00:20:56.070
  • - WELL TO BE HONEST, I WASN'T READY TO PLAY AND SO.
  • 00:20:56.090 --> 00:20:59.010

  • 00:20:59.030 --> 00:21:00.200
  • - I WAS PICKED TO GO TO THE RED SKINS, IT SEEMED
  • 00:21:00.220 --> 00:21:02.080
  • LIKE A DEAD-END BECAUSE IT SEEMED THAT THEIR
  • 00:21:02.100 --> 00:21:05.030
  • FUTURE WAS SOLIDIFIED IN WHO THEY HAD DRAFTED
  • 00:21:05.050 --> 00:21:07.170

  • WITH EVERYTHING GOING ON IN WASHINGTON?
  • 00:24:05.030 --> 00:24:07.010

  • AS YOU MENTIONED IN A FOURTH ROUND.
  • 00:24:10.000 --> 00:24:11.240
  • WASHINGTON HAD RG3, ROBERT GRIFFIN THE THIRD,

  • YOU HAD TO HAVE SOME DOUBTS.
  • 00:24:19.270 --> 00:24:21.190
  • BUT WHAT I SAW FROM AFAR, BECAUSE THIS IS THE FIRST
  • 00:24:21.210 --> 00:24:23.280
  • TIME I'M GETTING THE OPPORTUNITY, THE BLESSING
  • 00:24:24.000 --> 00:24:26.150
  • OF TALKING WITH YOU, I SAW A GUY WHO WAS
  • 00:24:26.170 --> 00:24:29.000
  • SUPPORTIVE OF RG3, ENCOURAGING, EXHORTING
  • 00:24:29.020 --> 00:24:34.170
  • HIM TO THE BEST POSSIBLE PERFORMANCE, AND YOU'VE
  • 00:24:34.190 --> 00:24:36.280
  • GOT TO BE THINKING WHEN AM I GONNA GET MY CHANCE?
  • 00:24:37.000 --> 00:24:39.110
  • WHY WERE YOU ABLE TO BE THE CONSUMMATE TEAMMATE
  • 00:24:39.130 --> 00:24:41.270
  • EVEN DURING THAT STRETCH OF THREE YEARS WHERE THE
  • 00:24:41.290 --> 00:24:44.170
  • TEAM DIDN'T FULLY COMMIT TO YOU WHICH SEEMED TO BE
  • 00:24:44.190 --> 00:24:46.280
  • KIND OF A STORYLINE FOR YOU?
  • 00:24:47.000 --> 00:24:50.070
  • - WELL TO BE HONEST, I WASN'T READY TO PLAY
  • 00:24:50.090 --> 00:24:52.150
  • AND SO THERE-- - YOU ADMIT THAT?
  • 00:24:52.170 --> 00:24:55.020
  • - YEAH, YOU KNOW THERE WAS A PART OF ME THAT
  • 00:24:55.040 --> 00:24:56.180
  • SAID THIS IS A MARATHON NOT A SPRINT, AND I'M
  • 00:24:56.200 --> 00:24:59.210
  • NOT, IF I GO OUT THERE RIGHT NOW, I'M NOT GONNA
  • 00:24:59.230 --> 00:25:02.130
  • HAVE THE SUCCESS THAT ROBERT'S HAVING.
  • 00:25:02.150 --> 00:25:04.090
  • - YOU WERE BEING VERY HONEST WITH YOURSELF.
  • 00:25:04.110 --> 00:25:06.080
  • - IT'S HELPFUL TO BE SELF-AWARE NO MATTER WHAT
  • 00:25:06.100 --> 00:25:08.190
  • YOU'RE DOING, AND I KNEW THAT I'M NOT GONNA DO,
  • 00:25:08.210 --> 00:25:12.000
  • PLAY AT A HIGH LEVEL.
  • 00:25:12.020 --> 00:25:13.230
  • WHAT ROBERT WAS DOING WAS OUTSTANDING AS A ROOKIE
  • 00:25:13.250 --> 00:25:15.260
  • TO PLAY AT THE LEVEL HE PLAYED AND THE CONFIDENCE
  • 00:25:15.280 --> 00:25:17.160
  • HE HAD. I MARVELED AT IT.
  • 00:25:17.180 --> 00:25:17.200
  • AND SO I SAID THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR ME
  • 00:25:19.180 --> 00:25:21.220
  • TO LEARN, SO THAT WAS REALLY A BLESSING IN DISGUISE.
  • 00:25:21.240 --> 00:25:24.120
  • WHEN I WAS PICKED TO GO TO THE REDSKINS, IT
  • 00:25:24.140 --> 00:25:26.050
  • SEEMED LIKE A DEAD-END BECAUSE IT SEEMED THAT
  • 00:25:26.070 --> 00:25:29.000
  • WELL THEIR FUTURE WAS SOLIDIFIED IN WHO THEY
  • 00:25:29.020 --> 00:25:31.020
  • HAD DRAFTED, AND REALLY I DON'T KNOW WHERE THIS IS
  • 00:25:31.040 --> 00:25:34.000
  • GONNA GO. I THINK THAT WAS THE CHALLENGE WAS NOT
  • 00:25:34.020 --> 00:25:36.100
  • BEING ABLE TO SEE THE NEXT THREE STEPS.
  • 00:25:36.120 --> 00:25:38.150
  • BUT ISN'T THAT HOW THE LORD WORKS SO OFTEN.
  • 00:25:38.170 --> 00:25:40.050
  • HE'S GONNA GIVE US THE NEXT STEP, HE'S GONNA
  • 00:25:40.070 --> 00:25:41.190
  • GIVE US ENOUGH FOR TODAY, BUT HE'S NOT GONNA GIVE
  • 00:25:41.210 --> 00:25:43.250
  • US THE ENTIRE STORY, SO WE HAVE TO TRUST HIM
  • 00:25:43.270 --> 00:25:46.060
  • EACH STEP OF THE WAY.
  • 00:25:46.080 --> 00:25:47.240
  • I THINK THAT WAS THE CHALLENGE WAS KNOWING
  • 00:25:47.260 --> 00:25:49.060
  • THAT THIS SEEMS LIKE A DEAD-END FOR ME CAREER
  • 00:25:49.080 --> 00:25:51.120
  • WISE, SO WHERE ARE YOU TAKING THIS, LORD?
  • 00:25:51.140 --> 00:25:54.040
  • - AND THE LESSONS LEARNED DURING THAT
  • 00:25:54.060 --> 00:25:57.190
  • APPRENTICESHIP PERIOD FOR YOU WERE?
  • 00:25:57.210 --> 00:26:00.130
  • - WELL, COUNTLESS LESSONS.
  • 00:26:00.150 --> 00:26:02.040
  • GOD HAS A PLAN. HE'S NOT WORRIED.
  • 00:26:02.060 --> 00:26:04.290
  • HE'S NOT UP THERE IN HEAVEN WONDERING WHAT'S
  • 00:26:05.010 --> 00:26:07.060
  • GONNA HAPPEN. HE HAS A PLAN, HE HAS A PURPOSE.
  • 00:26:07.080 --> 00:26:09.120
  • OUR JOB IS TO TRUST AND OBEY.
  • 00:26:09.140 --> 00:26:12.020
  • IF WE TRUST AND OBEY, HE'LL HANDLE THE REST.
  • 00:26:12.040 --> 00:26:14.190
  • SO WHILE MANY OF US WANT THINGS TO HAPPEN MUCH
  • 00:26:14.210 --> 00:26:16.130
  • FASTER, GOD'S TIMING WILL BE THE RIGHT TIMING.
  • 00:26:16.150 --> 00:26:21.010
  • FOR ME, THAT MEANT MY FOURTH YEAR IN THE NFL,
  • 00:26:21.030 --> 00:26:24.240
  • MY FOURTH YEAR WITH THE REDSKINS BEING ABLE TO PLAY,
  • 00:26:24.260 --> 00:26:28.190
  • HAVE SUCCESS AND START TO FEEL LIKE THE TABLES WERE
  • 00:26:28.210 --> 00:26:30.240
  • TURNING, BUT UNTIL THEN I JUST NEEDED TO TRUST AND
  • 00:26:30.260 --> 00:26:33.140
  • OBEY AND SUPPORT AND ALLOW THE LORD
  • 00:26:33.160 --> 00:26:36.240

  • 00:28:14.250 --> 00:28:19.080
  • WHAT KIND OF ROLE DOES HE PLAY WITH YOU?
  • 00:28:19.100 --> 00:28:21.100
  • - WE HAVE A TEAM BIBLE STUDY ACTUALLY TONIGHT
  • 00:28:21.120 --> 00:28:23.020
  • THAT HE'LL BE LEADING.
  • 00:28:23.040 --> 00:28:24.230
  • HE'S VERY INVOLVED WITH OUR NIGHT BEFORE GAMES.
  • 00:28:24.250 --> 00:28:27.170
  • WE HAVE CHAPEL SERVICES IN THE TEAM HOTEL.
  • 00:28:27.190 --> 00:28:29.290
  • HE'S VERY INVOLVED WITH SELECTING THE SPEAKERS
  • 00:28:30.010 --> 00:28:31.180
  • AND INTRODUCING THEM AND BEING A PART OF THAT.
  • 00:28:31.200 --> 00:28:33.290
  • HE'LL MEET ONE-ON-ONE WITH QUITE A FEW PLAYERS
  • 00:28:34.010 --> 00:28:35.280
  • THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.
  • 00:28:36.000 --> 00:28:37.200
  • HE'S JUST A TREMENDOUS MENTOR.
  • 00:28:37.220 --> 00:28:38.290
  • HE'S NOT A SELF-PROMOTER.
  • 00:28:39.010 --> 00:28:40.130
  • HE'S NOT A JERSEY CHASER, IF YOU WILL.
  • 00:28:40.150 --> 00:28:42.190
  • HE JUST WANTS TO SEE PEOPLE COME TO KNOW THE
  • 00:28:42.210 --> 00:28:44.040
  • LORD AND TO GROW CLOSER IN THEIR WALK WITH JESUS
  • 00:28:44.060 --> 00:28:46.010
  • AND KEEP THEIR EYES FIXED ON JESUS. SO HE'S
  • 00:28:46.030 --> 00:28:48.260
  • BEEN A TREMENDOUS ASSET TO ME AND MY ENTIRE FAMILY.
  • 00:28:48.280 --> 00:28:51.160
  • - YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO HELP ME WITH THE NAME
  • 00:28:51.180 --> 00:28:52.280
  • BECAUSE I'M GONNA BUTCHER IT UP.
  • 00:28:53.000 --> 00:28:54.140
  • IN YOUR BOOK, YOU TALKED ABOUT A TOM LAMPHERE TYPE
  • 00:28:54.160 --> 00:28:57.110
  • BACK IN COLLEGE OR BEFORE, MAYBE, YOU CALLED HIM RSV?
  • 00:28:57.130 --> 00:29:01.130
  • WHAT WAS HIS NAME?
  • 00:29:01.150 --> 00:29:02.290
  • - WELL, WE HAD A CHAPLAIN WITH THE MICHIGAN STATE SPARTANS
  • 00:29:03.010 --> 00:29:06.260
  • AS WELL, PHIL GILLESPIE, WHO WAS OUTSTANDING.
  • 00:29:06.280 --> 00:29:09.020
  • I'VE JUST ALWAYS FOUND YOU'VE GOT TO PICK OUT SPIRITUAL
  • 00:29:09.040 --> 00:29:11.280
  • MENTORS IN LIFE, AND PEOPLE WHO HAVE WALKED
  • 00:29:12.000 --> 00:29:14.070
  • AHEAD OF YOU, AND THEY KNOW WHERE YOU ARE, AND
  • 00:29:14.090 --> 00:29:17.180
  • YOU'VE GOT TO LOOK TO THEM FOR GUIDANCE, SOUND
  • 00:29:17.200 --> 00:29:19.250
  • BIBLICAL GUIDANCE, AND FORTUNATELY GOD HAS
  • 00:29:19.270 --> 00:29:22.060
  • ALWAYS PROVIDED THOSE PEOPLE IN MY LIFE AND
  • 00:29:22.080 --> 00:29:24.040
  • IT'S BEEN A GREAT JOURNEY.
  • 00:29:24.060 --> 00:29:26.170
  • - AND WE WELCOME YOU BACK TO PRAISE, AND WE
  • 00:29:28.200 --> 00:29:30.070
  • ARE THRILLED TO HAVE AS OUR GUEST NFL QUARTERBACK
  • 00:29:30.090 --> 00:29:32.150
  • KIRK COUSINS OF THE MINNESOTA VIKINGS.
  • 00:29:32.170 --> 00:29:34.170
  • HE'S PROUDLY WEARING THEIR GEAR TO SHOW YOU
  • 00:29:34.190 --> 00:29:36.150
  • WHO HE BELONGS TO, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY WHOSE
  • 00:29:36.170 --> 00:29:38.160
  • HE IS AND WHO HE REALLY BELONGS TO IS
  • 00:29:38.180 --> 00:29:40.130
  • THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:29:40.150 --> 00:29:42.050
  • I TEASED ABOUT GOING TO THE BREAK YOU SPEAKING AT
  • 00:29:42.070 --> 00:29:46.250
  • A PRISON, AND I REMEMBER YOUR DAD HAD ASKED YOU IF
  • 00:29:46.270 --> 00:29:49.060
  • YOU WOULD GO TO SPEAK AT THIS PRISON, AND YOU WERE
  • 00:29:49.080 --> 00:29:51.130
  • JUST COMING OFF A MINI-CAMP.
  • 00:29:51.150 --> 00:29:53.100
  • YOU WANTED TO HAVE SOME FUN WITH FRIENDS, YOU
  • 00:29:53.120 --> 00:29:55.110
  • WANTED TO GO STUDY THE THICK PLAY BOOK,
  • 00:29:55.130 --> 00:29:57.110
  • BUT YOU WENT THERE AND IT WAS A BLESSING.
  • 00:29:57.130 --> 00:29:59.090
  • SHARE THE STORY.
  • 00:29:59.110 --> 00:30:00.170
  • - YEAH, IT REALLY WAS, AND I'VE COME TO LEARN
  • 00:30:00.190 --> 00:30:02.070
  • THAT PRISON MINISTRY IS I THINK ONE OF THE BEST
  • 00:30:02.090 --> 00:30:04.020
  • MINISTRIES YOU CAN BE A PART OF BECAUSE THE
  • 00:30:04.040 --> 00:30:05.230
  • PEOPLE ARE HUNGRY TO MEET YOU AND TO HEAR ABOUT
  • 00:30:05.250 --> 00:30:09.190
  • THE GOOD NEWS OF JESUS.
  • 00:30:09.210 --> 00:30:11.250
  • AND THE HARVEST IS THERE BUT THE WORKERS ARE FEW,
  • 00:30:11.270 --> 00:30:17.130
  • JESUS SAYS, AND SO I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT THAT
  • 00:30:17.150 --> 00:30:19.230
  • WE GO AND VISIT PEOPLE IN PRISON AND WE TALK TO
  • 00:30:19.250 --> 00:30:23.200
  • THEM AND RELATE TO THEM AND GIVE THEM
  • 00:30:23.220 --> 00:30:25.240
  • HOPE AND ENCOURAGEMENT.
  • 00:30:25.260 --> 00:30:27.190
  • AND THAT DAY TAUGHT ME THE IMPORTANCE OF THAT
  • 00:30:27.210 --> 00:30:31.100
  • AND JUST, IT HELPS TAKE THE FOCUS OFF YOURSELF.
  • 00:30:31.120 --> 00:30:34.110
  • I WAS THERE ON MY SUMMER BREAK, AND MY FOCUS WAS
  • 00:30:34.130 --> 00:30:36.270
  • ON ME AND HOW I WAS GONNA ENJOY MY SUMMER, AND TO
  • 00:30:36.290 --> 00:30:40.140
  • SAY YOU KNOW WHAT, LET'S GO SPEND SOME TIME WITH
  • 00:30:40.160 --> 00:30:44.100
  • SOMEBODY ELSE AND MAKE IT ABOUT THEM AND ENCOURAGE
  • 00:30:44.120 --> 00:30:47.210
  • THEM, TRY TO BRIGHTEN THEIR DAY.
  • 00:30:47.230 --> 00:30:51.100
  • INEVITABLY, IT ENDS UP BRIGHTENING YOURS, SO IT
  • 00:30:51.120 --> 00:30:55.070
  • WAS A GREAT DAY AND REALLY GIVES ME THEN A
  • 00:30:55.090 --> 00:30:59.180
  • BETTER PERSPECTIVE GOING FORWARD.
  • 00:30:59.200 --> 00:31:01.140
  • I THINK I ENJOYED MY SUMMER BETTER HAVING
  • 00:31:01.160 --> 00:31:04.080
  • SPENT THAT DAY AND HAD BETTER PERSPECTIVE.
  • 00:31:04.100 --> 00:31:06.180
  • - AND YOU TALKED ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF MAKING GOOD
  • 00:31:06.200 --> 00:31:10.100
  • DECISIONS, AND IF I RECALL IT CORRECTLY,
  • 00:31:10.120 --> 00:31:12.240
  • ONE OF THE FOUNDATIONAL SCRIPTURES YOU ROOTED
  • 00:31:12.260 --> 00:31:14.270
  • THAT CHAPTER ON WAS GALATIANS 6:7.
  • 00:31:14.290 --> 00:31:18.100
  • HOW CAN-- SOMEBODY MIGHT BE ASKING, A GUY'S IN
  • 00:31:18.120 --> 00:31:21.190
  • PRISON, HE MIGHT BE THERE FOR LIFE, AND YET HE
  • 00:31:21.210 --> 00:31:24.000
  • STILL HAS SOME DECISIONS, GOOD DECISIONS HE CAN
  • 00:31:24.020 --> 00:31:26.280
  • MAKE IN THAT CIRCUMSTANCE?
  • 00:31:27.000 --> 00:31:28.230
  • - CERTAINLY. WELL GALATIANS 6:7 SAYS DO NOT BE DECEIVED,
  • 00:31:28.250 --> 00:31:31.230
  • GOD IS NOT MOCKED, MAN REAPS WHAT HE SOWS.
  • 00:31:31.250 --> 00:31:34.190
  • AND THE REALITY IS THAT THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES TO
  • 00:31:34.210 --> 00:31:37.040
  • THE CHOICES WE MAKE IN LIFE.
  • 00:31:37.060 --> 00:31:39.190
  • WHILE THERE'S FORGIVENESS FOR SIN AND THERE'S
  • 00:31:39.210 --> 00:31:41.190
  • ETERNAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD IF YOU ACCEPT JESUS
  • 00:31:41.210 --> 00:31:44.000
  • AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR, MANY TIMES THE
  • 00:31:44.020 --> 00:31:46.140
  • CONSEQUENCES OF SIN ARE STILL GONNA BE THERE.
  • 00:31:46.160 --> 00:31:48.290
  • AND SO OBVIOUSLY PRISONERS ARE FEELING
  • 00:31:49.010 --> 00:31:52.090
  • THOSE CONSEQUENCES ON A DAILY BASIS THAT A
  • 00:31:52.110 --> 00:31:54.160
  • MISTAKE THEY MADE, MANY TIMES 25 YEARS AGO,
  • 00:31:54.180 --> 00:31:56.280
  • THEY'RE STILL HAVING TO PAY FOR AND DEAL WITH THE
  • 00:31:57.000 --> 00:32:00.030
  • CONSEQUENCES AND THE RESULT OF A MISTAKE THEY MADE, SO
  • 00:32:00.050 --> 00:32:02.210
  • WHAT I WANTED TO COMMUNICATE TO THEM WAS YES, WHILE YOU
  • 00:32:02.230 --> 00:32:06.100
  • UNDERSTAND THE REALITY OF YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW,
  • 00:32:06.120 --> 00:32:09.020
  • THERE ARE STILL MANY MORE DECISIONS UP
  • 00:32:09.040 --> 00:32:11.100
  • AHEAD IN LIFE, AND YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO MAKE A
  • 00:32:11.120 --> 00:32:15.110
  • POOR DECISION GOING FORWARD.
  • 00:32:15.130 --> 00:32:17.150
  • CHOOSE TO MAKE RIGHT DECISIONS NOW MOVING
  • 00:32:17.170 --> 00:32:19.240
  • FORWARD, AND UNDERSTAND THAT THE BEST AND MOST
  • 00:32:19.260 --> 00:32:22.120
  • IMPORTANT DECISION YOU CAN MAKE OF ALL TIME IS
  • 00:32:22.140 --> 00:32:25.010
  • TO GIVE YOUR LIFE TO JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:32:25.030 --> 00:32:26.210
  • WHEN YOU DO THAT, THESE EARTHLY CIRCUMSTANCES AND
  • 00:32:26.230 --> 00:32:29.290
  • THE CONSEQUENCES ARE NOTHING COMPARED TO WHAT
  • 00:32:30.010 --> 00:32:32.270
  • YOU HAVE TO LOOK FORWARD TO IN ETERNITY AND THE
  • 00:32:32.290 --> 00:32:34.230
  • HOPE THAT THAT BRINGS.
  • 00:32:34.250 --> 00:32:36.140
  • SO I THOUGHT IT WAS WELL RECEIVED AND AGAIN,
  • 00:32:36.160 --> 00:32:39.270
  • WHATEVER I MAY HAVE SHARED WITH THEM, I FELT
  • 00:32:39.290 --> 00:32:42.090
  • LIKE THEY BLESSED ME IN RETURN JUST AS MUCH.
  • 00:32:42.110 --> 00:32:45.010
  • - YOU'RE BLESSED WITH A BEAUTIFUL FAMILY.
  • 00:32:45.030 --> 00:32:48.230
  • THE TOPIC IS FAITH AT HOME. TALK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:32:48.250 --> 00:32:52.140
  • - WELL, I THINK IT ALL REALLY STARTS WITH FAMILY.
  • 00:32:52.160 --> 00:32:56.070
  • IF I'M DOING INTERVIEWS WITH JAMES BROWN AND
  • 00:32:56.090 --> 00:32:59.040
  • TALKING THE TALK BUT CAN'T WALK THE WALK WITH
  • 00:32:59.060 --> 00:33:01.160
  • MY MARRIAGE AND WITH THE WAY I RAISE MY BOYS, THEN IT'S
  • 00:33:01.180 --> 00:33:05.010
  • KIND OF ALL BEEN A SHAM.
  • 00:33:05.030 --> 00:33:07.030
  • SO I THINK IT STARTS AND ENDS WITH HOW IS MY
  • 00:33:07.050 --> 00:33:10.100
  • MARRIAGE? AND HOW IS MY RELATIONSHIP WITH MY BOYS?
  • 00:33:10.120 --> 00:33:13.090
  • AND ARE THEY GROWING UP TO KNOW AND LOVE THE
  • 00:33:13.110 --> 00:33:16.180
  • WORD OF GOD AND WANT TO WALK WITH GOD?
  • 00:33:16.200 --> 00:33:18.270
  • SO THAT REALLY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN FOOTBALL.
  • 00:33:18.290 --> 00:33:22.050
  • AND I'VE ENJOYED FOLLOWING OTHER PEOPLE'S
  • 00:33:22.070 --> 00:33:25.170
  • STORIES, PEOPLE IN BUSINESS, READING BOOKS
  • 00:33:25.190 --> 00:33:27.240
  • ON THEIR LIVES, THEIR MEMOIRS.
  • 00:33:27.260 --> 00:33:29.200
  • AND MANY OF THEM HAVE INCREDIBLE SUCCESS IN
  • 00:33:29.220 --> 00:33:32.230
  • BUSINESS, BUT THEN YOU FIND OUT THEY'VE GONE
  • 00:33:32.250 --> 00:33:35.050
  • THROUGH A TOUGH DIVORCE, OR GONE THROUGH TOUGH
  • 00:33:35.070 --> 00:33:37.030
  • ESTRANGEMENT FROM THEIR SON, AND I THINK MAN,
  • 00:33:37.050 --> 00:33:40.010
  • IT'S HARD TO PUT A PRICE ON THAT.
  • 00:33:40.030 --> 00:33:42.110
  • I WOULD TRADE ALL OF THAT SUCCESS IN BUSINESS FOR A
  • 00:33:42.130 --> 00:33:45.160
  • HEALTHY MARRIAGE AND A HEALTHY FAMILY,
  • 00:33:45.180 --> 00:33:47.270
  • SO THE VALUE THERE IS TREMENDOUS.
  • 00:33:47.290 --> 00:33:49.290
  • - AND HOW DO YOU MAKE THAT PRACTICAL?
  • 00:33:50.010 --> 00:33:51.240
  • I KNOW THE LEADERS OF THIS NETWORK, MATT AND
  • 00:33:51.260 --> 00:33:55.020
  • LAURIE CROUCH, I COMMENTED TO MATT THAT
  • 00:33:55.040 --> 00:33:58.100
  • WHICH IMPRESSED ME THE MOST WHEN WE WERE
  • 00:33:58.120 --> 00:34:00.100
  • DISCUSSING ABOUT ME BEING ON THE TBN TEAM WAS HOW
  • 00:34:00.120 --> 00:34:03.190
  • EVERY TIME I SEE HIM, THE MAJORITY OF TIMES I SEE
  • 00:34:03.210 --> 00:34:06.010
  • HIM WITH HIS WIFE, EPHESIANS 5:25,
  • 00:34:06.030 --> 00:34:09.180
  • HUSBANDS LOVE YOUR WIVES.
  • 00:34:09.200 --> 00:34:11.210
  • WE DRILL DOWN EVEN MORE SO TO SAY
  • 00:34:11.230 --> 00:34:13.180
  • LISTEN TO YOUR WIVES.
  • 00:34:13.200 --> 00:34:15.060
  • SO HOW DO YOU PRACTICALLY TRY TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT
  • 00:34:15.080 --> 00:34:17.100
  • YOUR WIFE JULIE AND YOUR BOYS ARE PRIORITIES?
  • 00:34:17.120 --> 00:34:21.000
  • - WELL IT'S THE WAY OF THE CROSS, RIGHT?
  • 00:34:21.020 --> 00:34:22.230
  • WHEN I COME HOME FROM WORK AND I'M TIRED AND
  • 00:34:22.250 --> 00:34:24.200
  • ALL I WANT TO DO IS KICK MY FEET UP AND WATCH TV,
  • 00:34:24.220 --> 00:34:27.140
  • I'VE GOT MY WIFE AND MY TWO BOYS LOOKING AT ME
  • 00:34:27.160 --> 00:34:29.100
  • AND THEY NEED HELP, AND MY WIFE NEEDS HELP TAKING
  • 00:34:29.120 --> 00:34:31.180
  • CARE OF THE BOYS, MY BOYS NEED TO BE BATHED
  • 00:34:31.200 --> 00:34:33.230
  • AND PUT DOWN TO SLEEP AND READ TO.
  • 00:34:33.250 --> 00:34:36.010
  • AND SO I MAKE IT ABOUT ME, THEN YEAH,
  • 00:34:36.030 --> 00:34:38.070
  • WE'RE GONNA HAVE SOME DYSFUNCTION.
  • 00:34:38.090 --> 00:34:40.230
  • BUT IF YOU TAKE THE WAY OF THE CROSS AND SAY HEY,
  • 00:34:40.250 --> 00:34:43.030
  • I'M GONNA SERVE AND LOVE THOSE AROUND ME, THEN
  • 00:34:43.050 --> 00:34:46.100
  • IT'S AN EASY DECISION TO SAY TO YOUR WIFE HEY,
  • 00:34:46.120 --> 00:34:48.130
  • HOW CAN I HELP? PUT ME TO WORK.
  • 00:34:48.150 --> 00:34:51.080
  • OR TO SAY HEY BOYS, WE'RE GONNA GIVE MOM A BREAK,
  • 00:34:51.100 --> 00:34:53.240
  • LET'S GO READ A BOOK AND TAKE A BATH AND GET DOWN TO
  • 00:34:53.260 --> 00:34:57.100
  • BED. SO JUST TRYING TO BE A HELP HOWEVER I CAN AS
  • 00:34:57.120 --> 00:35:00.180
  • MUCH AS MY ENERGY MAY NOT BE THERE, AND IT'S
  • 00:35:00.200 --> 00:35:02.180
  • AMAZING WHEN YOUR WIFE IS THE SAME WAY FOR YOU.
  • 00:35:02.200 --> 00:35:04.140
  • I GET HOME FROM A GAME LATE AND SHE KNOWS I'VE
  • 00:35:04.160 --> 00:35:07.000
  • GOT TO BE ABLE TO SLEEP IN A LITTLE BIT, AND SHE
  • 00:35:07.020 --> 00:35:09.000
  • GETS UP EARLY WITH THE KIDS, AND SO THERE'S
  • 00:35:09.020 --> 00:35:10.270
  • CONSTANT BACK AND FORTH.
  • 00:35:10.290 --> 00:35:12.280
  • AND I WOULD SAY MY WIFE CARRIES FAR GREATER
  • 00:35:13.000 --> 00:35:14.210
  • BURDEN AT HOME THAN I DO, SO I DON'T WANT TO TAKE
  • 00:35:14.230 --> 00:35:16.140
  • TOO MUCH CREDIT BUT YOU CERTAINLY HAVE TO SERVE
  • 00:35:16.160 --> 00:35:20.220
  • AND BE ABLE TO MAKE IT WORK.
  • 00:35:20.240 --> 00:35:22.090
  • - LESSONS YOU'VE LEARNED FROM MOM AND DAD IN THAT
  • 00:35:22.110 --> 00:35:24.010
  • REGARD TO MAKE SURE YOU WERE EMULATING THEM?
  • 00:35:24.030 --> 00:35:27.280
  • - SURE, WHEN YOU HAVE AGAIN YOU LEARN FROM
  • 00:35:28.000 --> 00:35:29.250
  • EXAMPLES, AND SO WHEN YOU HAVE A GOOD EXAMPLE AT
  • 00:35:29.270 --> 00:35:32.070
  • HOME GROWING UP, THEN YOU'RE ABLE TO SEE HEY,
  • 00:35:32.090 --> 00:35:35.190
  • THIS IS WHAT IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE.
  • 00:35:35.210 --> 00:35:37.130
  • AND I THANKFULLY HAD A GOOD EXAMPLE.
  • 00:35:37.150 --> 00:35:39.140
  • MY DAD AND MY MOM WORKED AT THEIR MARRIAGE, AND
  • 00:35:39.160 --> 00:35:42.150
  • NOT EVERYTHING CAME EASY, BUT THEY MADE A
  • 00:35:42.170 --> 00:35:44.270
  • COMMITMENT AND THEY LIVED THAT COMMITMENT OUT.
  • 00:35:44.290 --> 00:35:47.250
  • SO FOR ME, IT WAS VERY NATURAL TO DO THE SAME THING.
  • 00:35:47.270 --> 00:35:52.170
  • - GIVING BACK, I MENTIONED THAT AS WELL TO
  • 00:35:52.190 --> 00:35:54.240
  • YOUR FOOTBALL CAMP, THERE'S SO MANY OTHER
  • 00:35:54.260 --> 00:35:56.270
  • THINGS YOU'RE INVOLVED IN GIVING BACK.
  • 00:35:56.290 --> 00:35:59.100
  • - YEAH, WELL I THINK IT STARTS FIRST OF ALL FINANCIALLY.
  • 00:35:59.120 --> 00:36:02.160
  • MAKING A SACRIFICE THERE, UNDERSTANDING THE CONCEPT
  • 00:36:02.180 --> 00:36:05.030
  • OF TITHING, AND THEN FREE WILL GIVING BEYOND TITHING.
  • 00:36:05.050 --> 00:36:08.180
  • SO JULIE AND I ARE VERY COMMITTED TO GIVING OF
  • 00:36:08.200 --> 00:36:10.290
  • OUR GROSS INCOME, A SIGNIFICANT PERCENTAGE.
  • 00:36:11.010 --> 00:36:15.070
  • AND WE WANT TO GROW IN OUR GIVING JUST LIKE YOU
  • 00:36:15.090 --> 00:36:17.230
  • WOULD GROW IN ANY OTHER AREA OF YOUR LIFE, SO
  • 00:36:17.250 --> 00:36:19.150
  • EVERY YEAR WE WANT TO GIVE A LARGER PERCENTAGE
  • 00:36:19.170 --> 00:36:21.150
  • OF OUR INCOME TO TRY TO GROW IN THAT.
  • 00:36:21.170 --> 00:36:23.270
  • BUT THEN OBVIOUSLY YOU DON'T JUST GIVE
  • 00:36:23.290 --> 00:36:25.130
  • OF YOUR TREASURE.
  • 00:36:25.150 --> 00:36:27.140
  • YOU CAN GIVE OF YOUR TIME AND YOUR TALENTS, SO
  • 00:36:27.160 --> 00:36:30.230
  • FINDING WAYS TO LIKE IN A FOOTBALL CAMP, STEWARD
  • 00:36:30.250 --> 00:36:35.150
  • THE FOOTBALL SKILLS AND THE FOOTBALL PLATFORM TO
  • 00:36:35.170 --> 00:36:38.050
  • THEN MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR KIDS AND GIVE OF TIME
  • 00:36:38.070 --> 00:36:39.280
  • TO DO THAT CAMP AS WELL.
  • 00:36:40.000 --> 00:36:42.040
  • AND SO WE'RE LOOKING FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO BLESS
  • 00:36:42.060 --> 00:36:45.190
  • OTHER PEOPLE AND BE GIVERS AND AGAIN, WE FEEL
  • 00:36:45.210 --> 00:36:49.100
  • LIKE WHEN I READ THE BIBLE AND I GET AT THE
  • 00:36:49.120 --> 00:36:52.270
  • HEART OF GOD, GOD IS A GIVER.
  • 00:36:52.290 --> 00:36:55.070
  • HE'S THE GREATEST GIVER. AND WE WANT TO REFLECT
  • 00:36:55.090 --> 00:36:57.190
  • THAT IN THE WAY WE LIVE OUR LIFE.
  • 00:36:57.210 --> 00:36:59.090
  • - WITHOUT TRYING TO ACT LIKE WE'RE IN SEMINARY,
  • 00:36:59.110 --> 00:37:01.210
  • IF YOU WILL.
  • 00:37:01.230 --> 00:37:03.030
  • I KNOW YOU'RE FROM A MINISTERIAL FAMILY, AND YOU
  • 00:37:03.050 --> 00:37:04.220
  • HAVE MADE THE SCRIPTURES REAL TO YOURSELF, BUT IT'S
  • 00:37:04.240 --> 00:37:08.120
  • AMAZING THAT THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO THINK,
  • 00:37:08.140 --> 00:37:10.070
  • WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:37:10.090 --> 00:37:11.240
  • TITHING IS OLD TESTAMENT.
  • 00:37:11.260 --> 00:37:13.090
  • IT'S NOT NECESSARILY NEW TESTAMENT,
  • 00:37:13.110 --> 00:37:15.070
  • AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE.
  • 00:37:15.090 --> 00:37:17.030
  • BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU KNOW THE PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING.
  • 00:37:17.050 --> 00:37:19.020
  • WHAT'S YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT TITHING?
  • 00:37:19.040 --> 00:37:20.180
  • - WELL, I HAVE A LOT OF THOUGHTS ABOUT TITHING.
  • 00:37:20.200 --> 00:37:22.210
  • I'VE REALLY STUDIED IT, AND IT'S PRETTY BLACK
  • 00:37:22.230 --> 00:37:24.150
  • AND WHITE TO ME.
  • 00:37:24.170 --> 00:37:26.150
  • WE'RE NOT UNDER THE LAW IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, WE'RE
  • 00:37:26.170 --> 00:37:28.130
  • UNDER GRACE, AND GRACE ALWAYS DOES MORE.
  • 00:37:28.150 --> 00:37:30.260
  • AND SO TITHING IS TRAINING WHEELS. IT'S A START.
  • 00:37:30.280 --> 00:37:36.290
  • TITHING IS A START, AND FROM THERE YOU SAY, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:37:37.010 --> 00:37:39.230
  • LET'S STRETCH OURSELVES A LITTLE MORE.
  • 00:37:39.250 --> 00:37:41.080
  • AND IN REALITY, GIVING SHOULD BE UNCOMFORTABLE.
  • 00:37:41.100 --> 00:37:43.140
  • GIVING SHOULD COST YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:37:43.160 --> 00:37:45.120
  • IF IT REALLY ISN'T COSTING YOU SOMETHING, YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:37:45.140 --> 00:37:47.100
  • QUESTION THE REAL SACRIFICE OF THE GIFT.
  • 00:37:47.120 --> 00:37:50.070
  • AND SO JULIE AND I WANT TO GIVE TO A PERCENTAGE OF OUR
  • 00:37:50.090 --> 00:37:52.240
  • INCOME THAT WE SAY, BOY, YOU KNOW, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO
  • 00:37:52.260 --> 00:37:56.070
  • PROBABLY SACRIFICE SOMETHING SOMEDAY IF WE GIVE THIS MUCH
  • 00:37:56.090 --> 00:37:58.190
  • NOW. AND WE LIKE THAT.
  • 00:37:58.210 --> 00:38:01.180
  • WE LIKE THAT TENSION BECAUSE THEN IT FORCES THE LORD TO
  • 00:38:01.200 --> 00:38:03.270
  • SHOW UP AND PROVIDE.
  • 00:38:03.290 --> 00:38:06.000
  • SO WE'VE ENJOYED BEING ABLE TO GIVE, AND HOPEFULLY,
  • 00:38:06.020 --> 00:38:08.230
  • TELLING OUR STORY, MAYBE OTHER PEOPLE WILL STEP UP
  • 00:38:08.250 --> 00:38:10.240
  • THEIR GAME IN GIVING, TOO.
  • 00:38:10.260 --> 00:38:13.010
  • - WOW, I'M IMPRESSED, FOLKS.
  • 00:38:13.030 --> 00:38:15.020
  • HE SAID HE STUDIED TITHING.
  • 00:38:15.040 --> 00:38:17.060
  • THIS IS NOT JUST SOMETHING THAT HE'S JUST SPEWING OUT.
  • 00:38:17.080 --> 00:38:20.070
  • YOU KNOW FOR A FACT THAT IT HAS, AS YOU SAID,
  • 00:38:20.090 --> 00:38:23.170
  • I LOVE YOUR EXPRESSION, THE RING OF TRUTH.
  • 00:38:23.190 --> 00:38:25.230
  • WHEN WE COME BACK, AND HE'S TALKED ABOUT JULIE, AS WELL,
  • 00:38:25.250 --> 00:38:28.060
  • TOO, THEY'RE INVOLVED IN A NUMBER OF OTHER ACTIVITIES
  • 00:38:28.080 --> 00:38:30.250
  • THAT REALLY ARE BENEFITING SO MANY OTHERS, AND IT DOES
  • 00:38:30.270 --> 00:38:33.070
  • COST HIM, BUT IT'S BENEFICIAL, AND
  • 00:38:33.090 --> 00:38:35.170
  • IT'S PAYING OFF.
  • 00:38:35.190 --> 00:38:37.040
  • WE'LL DO THAT WHEN WE COME BACK TO PRAISE
  • 00:38:37.060 --> 00:38:38.120
  • WITH KIRK COUSINS.
  • 00:38:38.140 --> 00:38:39.220
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:38:39.240 --> 00:38:42.260
  • - THAT WAS A SPECIAL YEAR.
  • 00:38:42.280 --> 00:38:44.270
  • WE WERE TWO AND FOUR AND DIDN'T HAVE THE BEST TOUCH
  • 00:38:44.290 --> 00:38:46.280
  • DOWN-INTERCEPTION RATIO, BUT THEN IT TOOK OFF.
  • 00:38:47.000 --> 00:38:49.250
  • WE FELT LIKE WE PLAYED AS WELL AS ANYBODY IN THE NFL
  • 00:38:49.270 --> 00:38:52.170
  • IN THE LAST TEN WEEKS OF THE SEASON.
  • 00:38:52.190 --> 00:38:55.210
  • WHEN YOUR BACK'S AGAINST THE WALL, AND PEOPLE ARE TAKING
  • 00:38:55.230 --> 00:38:58.170
  • SHOTS AT YOU, IT'S EASY TO STAY HUMBLE,
  • 00:38:58.190 --> 00:39:00.040
  • IT'S EASY TO STAY HUNGRY.
  • 00:39:00.060 --> 00:39:01.200
  • BUT WHEN THINGS ARE GOING WELL, YOU START TO THINK
  • 00:39:01.220 --> 00:39:03.020
  • YOU'VE ARRIVED.
  • 00:39:03.040 --> 00:39:05.240
  • WE HAVE TO FIGHT AGAINST THAT DESIRE TO BE
  • 00:39:05.260 --> 00:39:07.220
  • COMFORTABLE AT ALL TIMES, AND WE KEEP GOING AND KEEP
  • 00:39:07.240 --> 00:39:09.210
  • STRIVING FOR GREATNESS EVERY SINGLE DAY.

  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:39:11.170 --> 00:39:15.110
  • I THINK THE MIDDLE SCHOOL AGE IS A FUN AGE.
  • 00:39:15.130 --> 00:39:17.020
  • I THINK IT'S KIDS WHO ARE GROWING.
  • 00:39:17.040 --> 00:39:19.210
  • YOU CAN HAVE A LOT OF FUN WITH THEM.
  • 00:39:19.230 --> 00:39:21.110
  • THEY'RE NOT TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL, AND THOSE ARE THE
  • 00:39:21.130 --> 00:39:23.130
  • KIND OF PEOPLE I WANT TO WORK WITH.
  • 00:39:23.150 --> 00:39:25.150
  • SO I THINK IT'S JUST THE PERFECT AGE TO HAVE A TON OF
  • 00:39:25.170 --> 00:39:27.270
  • FUN, BUT ALSO TALK ABOUT SOME IMPORTANT THINGS THAT
  • 00:39:27.290 --> 00:39:29.170
  • CAN REALLY HELP THEM GOING FORWARD.
  • 00:39:29.190 --> 00:39:31.190
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:39:31.210 --> 00:39:33.150
  • MY COLLEGE QUARTERBACK COACH TOLD ME ON MY FIRST DAY ON
  • 00:39:33.170 --> 00:39:35.110
  • CAMPUS THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT TRAIT OF A
  • 00:39:35.130 --> 00:39:37.020
  • QUARTERBACK IS TO BE A GREAT DECISION MAKER, AND AS I'VE
  • 00:39:37.040 --> 00:39:38.220
  • NOW PLAYED THROUGH FIVE YEARS OF COLLEGE AND FOUR
  • 00:39:38.240 --> 00:39:42.200
  • YEARS IN THE NFL, I WOULD ECHO THAT STATEMENT, THAT
  • 00:39:42.220 --> 00:39:45.080
  • IT'S ALL ABOUT MAKING THE RIGHT DECISIONS.
  • 00:39:45.100 --> 00:39:47.160
  • SO I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT FOR MIDDLE SCHOOLERS TO BE
  • 00:39:47.180 --> 00:39:49.220
  • ABLE TO GRASP THAT PRINCIPLE NOW AS THEY HAVE A LOT OF
  • 00:39:49.240 --> 00:39:52.120
  • BIG DECISIONS GOING AHEAD OF THEM.

  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:39:54.040 --> 00:39:57.250
  • I WANT TO DO A MIDDLE SCHOOL FOOTBALL CAMP BECAUSE I
  • 00:39:57.270 --> 00:39:59.220
  • WANTED TO USE THE PLATFORM THAT FOOTBALL AND THE NFL
  • 00:39:59.240 --> 00:40:02.090
  • HAVE AFFORDED ME, AND I WANTED TO SHARE SOME OF THE
  • 00:40:02.110 --> 00:40:05.070
  • THINGS I'VE LEARNED THROUGH THE YEARS PLAYING FOOTBALL
  • 00:40:05.090 --> 00:40:07.170
  • AND GOING THROUGH LIFE THAT I THOUGHT MAYBE I COULD PASS
  • 00:40:07.190 --> 00:40:10.080
  • ONTO YOUNG PEOPLE.
  • 00:40:10.100 --> 00:40:12.110
  • AND I WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR MY HOME TOWN.
  • 00:40:12.130 --> 00:40:15.150
  • I WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR WEST MICHIGAN AND
  • 00:40:15.170 --> 00:40:17.000
  • ULTIMATELY FOR THE KINGDOM.
  • 00:40:17.020 --> 00:40:23.260
  • - AND WHILE YOU MAY THINK YOU'RE ON PRAISE, WE'RE
  • 00:40:23.280 --> 00:40:25.210
  • TALKING WITH KIRK COUSINS, NFL QUARTERBACK.
  • 00:40:25.230 --> 00:40:28.020
  • WE JUST FOUND OUT HE'S ACTUALLY A SEMINARIAN WHO
  • 00:40:28.040 --> 00:40:31.290
  • DEALS AND DELVES DEEPLY INTO MATTERS OF FAITH, AND THAT
  • 00:40:32.010 --> 00:40:34.120
  • IS ABSOLUTELY AWESOME.
  • 00:40:34.140 --> 00:40:36.050
  • BUT YOU KNOW YOU DO HAVE FUN, AS WELL, TOO.
  • 00:40:36.070 --> 00:40:38.040
  • AND LAST HALLOWEEN, THIS PAST HALLOWEEN, YOU GUYS GOT
  • 00:40:38.060 --> 00:40:41.270
  • SOME KIDS TOGETHER TO TRULY HAVE SOME FUN.
  • 00:40:41.290 --> 00:40:44.050
  • - YEAH, THE VIKINGS DID A GREAT JOB HERE WITH THEIR
  • 00:40:44.070 --> 00:40:46.030
  • CHARITABLE OUTREACH, AND THEY PRESENTED US AN IDEA TO
  • 00:40:46.050 --> 00:40:48.010
  • BRING SOME DISADVANTAGED YOUTH FROM THE TWIN
  • 00:40:48.030 --> 00:40:51.090
  • CITIES OVER TO THE VIKINGS FACILITY.
  • 00:40:51.110 --> 00:40:54.190
  • WE'LL TAKE THEM OVER TO PARTY CITY AND GET HALLOWEEN
  • 00:40:54.210 --> 00:40:56.230
  • COSTUMES AND THEN TAKE THEM BACK TO THE FACILITY AND
  • 00:40:56.250 --> 00:40:59.160
  • TRICK OR TREAT.
  • 00:40:59.180 --> 00:41:01.160
  • AND JULIE AND I SAID, THAT'S A GREAT IDEA,
  • 00:41:01.180 --> 00:41:03.080
  • WE'LL GET BEHIND THAT.
  • 00:41:03.100 --> 00:41:05.020
  • WE LOVE TO GET THE COSTUMES FOR EVERYBODY AND
  • 00:41:05.040 --> 00:41:06.120
  • SPEND TIME WITH THE KIDS.
  • 00:41:06.140 --> 00:41:07.250
  • SO IT WAS A LOT OF FUN.
  • 00:41:07.270 --> 00:41:09.090
  • I GOT DRESSED UP AS BUZZ LIGHT YEAR,
  • 00:41:09.110 --> 00:41:10.230
  • AND JUST MEAT THE KIDS.
  • 00:41:10.250 --> 00:41:12.290
  • MANY OF THEM ARE VIKINGS FANS, AND WE GOT TO THROW
  • 00:41:13.010 --> 00:41:16.070
  • THE FOOTBALL WITH THEM AND SEE THE JOY IN THEIR FACE,
  • 00:41:16.090 --> 00:41:18.110
  • AND TO ALLOW THEM TO HAVE A SPECIAL HALLOWEEN.
  • 00:41:18.130 --> 00:41:20.200
  • I'D LIKE TO THINK IT WAS A GREAT MEMORY FOR THEM.
  • 00:41:20.220 --> 00:41:23.010
  • - BUT HEY, YOU KNOW YOU'RE STILL YOUNG ENOUGH TO HAVE
  • 00:41:23.030 --> 00:41:25.020
  • FUN AND OF COURSE WITH A COUPLE LITTLE ONES.
  • 00:41:25.040 --> 00:41:27.250
  • P.S.P. CARES, KIRK UNDERCOVER, WHAT WAS THAT?
  • 00:41:27.270 --> 00:41:31.090
  • - YEAH, PET SUPPLIES PLUS, A PET STORE ACTUALLY IN
  • 00:41:31.110 --> 00:41:33.260
  • NORTHERN VIRGINIA AREA, WE LIVED OUT THERE.
  • 00:41:33.280 --> 00:41:36.260
  • WE WERE PARTNERED WITH THEM, AND THEY DID A LITTLE FUN
  • 00:41:36.280 --> 00:41:41.010
  • DEAL IN THE STORE WHERE I WAS DISGUISED IN THE STORE,
  • 00:41:41.030 --> 00:41:43.000
  • AND BASICALLY WAS TRYING TO PRO TEND THAT I WAS JUST A
  • 00:41:43.020 --> 00:41:49.110
  • PERSON HELPING PEOPLE CHECK OUT AND AN
  • 00:41:49.130 --> 00:41:51.080
  • EMPLOYEE OF THE STORE.
  • 00:41:51.100 --> 00:41:53.160
  • BUT REALLY, I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS DOING, AND SO IT
  • 00:41:53.180 --> 00:41:56.220
  • WAS KIND OF A FUN SPOOF AS CUSTOMERS CAME IN AND
  • 00:41:56.240 --> 00:41:58.220
  • GETTING TO TALK WITH THEM AND TRY TO SELL THEM PET
  • 00:41:58.240 --> 00:42:03.100
  • SUPPLIES, TOYS AND FOOD AND THINGS LIKE THAT.
  • 00:42:03.120 --> 00:42:04.280
  • BUT MANY OF THE THEM SPOTTED ME AND SAID, YOU LOOK A LOT
  • 00:42:05.000 --> 00:42:06.250
  • LIKE KIRK COUSINS, SO IT WAS A LITTLE FUN DEAL.
  • 00:42:06.270 --> 00:42:09.240
  • - KIRK, IS THIS TRUE NOW?
  • 00:42:09.260 --> 00:42:11.280
  • OBVIOUSLY YOU BELIEVE IN TITHING.
  • 00:42:12.000 --> 00:42:14.060
  • YOU AND JULIE ARE EXCELLENT STEWARDS OVER YOUR MONEY.
  • 00:42:14.080 --> 00:42:17.110
  • PLEASE TELL US YOU'RE NOT LIVING IN YOUR PARENTS OR
  • 00:42:17.130 --> 00:42:20.150
  • IN-LAWS BASEMENT ANYMORE IN THE OFF SEASON.

  • YOU GUYS, YOU'RE DOING OKAY NOW, RIGHT?
  • 00:42:23.180 --> 00:42:26.040
  • - WELL, YOU KNOW I CERTAINLY DON'T WANT TO SEND
  • 00:42:26.060 --> 00:42:28.260
  • THE MESSAGE THAT YEAH, WE GIVE IT ALL AWAY, AND WE
  • 00:42:28.280 --> 00:42:31.240
  • JUST LIVE ON NOTHING.
  • 00:42:31.260 --> 00:42:33.180
  • WE DO BELIEVE GOD HAS GIVEN US ALL THINGS TO ENJOY, AND
  • 00:42:33.200 --> 00:42:36.120
  • SO WE DON'T WANT TO LIVE IN BONDAGE,
  • 00:42:36.140 --> 00:42:39.050
  • EITHER, TO BE MISERS.
  • 00:42:39.070 --> 00:42:42.030
  • SO WE DO AT TIMES STAY WITH MY IN-LAWS
  • 00:42:42.050 --> 00:42:45.060
  • IN THEIR BASEMENT.
  • 00:42:45.080 --> 00:42:46.270
  • THE NFL LIFE, WE'RE BOUNCING ALL AROUND IN THE OFF
  • 00:42:46.290 --> 00:42:49.010
  • SEASON, AND SO WE WANT TO BE WITH FAMILY, SO IT'S HARD
  • 00:42:49.030 --> 00:42:52.030
  • FOR US TO ALL BE TOGETHER.
  • 00:42:52.050 --> 00:42:54.080
  • SO MANY TIMES, WE DO FIND OURSELVES STAYING WITH

  • FAMILY IN A SPARE BEDROOM, BUT NO, WE BUILT OUR DREAM
  • 00:42:57.120 --> 00:43:00.250
  • HOME BACK IN MICHIGAN WHERE I'M FROM.
  • 00:43:00.270 --> 00:43:03.150
  • AND WE'VE ALSO ENJOYED THE BLESSINGS THAT GOD HAS GIVEN
  • 00:43:03.170 --> 00:43:05.220
  • US, AND WE WANT TO STEWARD THEM AND SHARE THEM WITH
  • 00:43:05.240 --> 00:43:08.050
  • OTHER PEOPLE AND BLESS OTHERS.
  • 00:43:08.070 --> 00:43:09.260
  • - YOU'RE DRIVEN FOR SUCCESS, KINGDOM SUCCESS,
  • 00:43:09.280 --> 00:43:14.000
  • WHICH WE UNDERSTAND, BUT IN YOUR FOOTBALL LIFE --
  • 00:43:14.020 --> 00:43:16.020
  • BECAUSE THAT IS A PLATFORM THAT YOU'RE USING AS A
  • 00:43:16.040 --> 00:43:18.130
  • MARKETPLACE MINISTRY, IF YOU WILL.
  • 00:43:18.150 --> 00:43:22.030
  • IS IT STILL TOUGH AFTER ALL OF THIS TIME TO HAVE TO DEAL
  • 00:43:22.050 --> 00:43:25.150
  • WITH THE NAY SAYERS OUT THERE?
  • 00:43:25.170 --> 00:43:29.100
  • AND I KNOW THE EXPECTATIONS THAT COME WITH THE CONTRACT
  • 00:43:29.120 --> 00:43:31.220
  • THAT YOU SIGNED. THAT'S THE WORLD WE LIVE IN.
  • 00:43:31.240 --> 00:43:34.030
  • - RIGHT. - HOW TOUGH IS IT FOR YOU?
  • 00:43:34.050 --> 00:43:36.070
  • BECAUSE IF FOOTBALL, IT IS THE ULTIMATE TEAM GAME, BUT
  • 00:43:36.090 --> 00:43:39.010
  • LET THERE BE A MISSTEP WITH THE VIKINGS, THE FINGER
  • 00:43:39.030 --> 00:43:41.210
  • STILL POINTS AT YOU. IT'S TOUGH.
  • 00:43:41.230 --> 00:43:44.050
  • - IT'S TOUGH, IT'S NOT EASY.
  • 00:43:44.070 --> 00:43:48.070
  • NOBODY LIKES TO BE CRITICIZED, BUT YOU TAKE THE
  • 00:43:48.090 --> 00:43:51.030
  • GOOD WITH THE BAD, AND WE SPENT SEVERAL MINUTES
  • 00:43:51.050 --> 00:43:53.180
  • TALKING ABOUT ALL THE BLESSINGS THAT COME FROM
  • 00:43:53.200 --> 00:43:56.060
  • BEING A QUARTERBACK AND HOW MUCH THE LORD HAS
  • 00:43:56.080 --> 00:43:58.020
  • BLESSED MY CAREER.
  • 00:43:58.040 --> 00:43:59.280
  • AND YOU KNOW, IF IT MEANS YOU GET THE FINGER POINTED
  • 00:44:00.020 --> 00:44:02.060
  • AT YOU SOMETIMES AND THERE'S CRITICISM, I THINK
  • 00:44:02.080 --> 00:44:03.240
  • I'LL TAKE THAT TRADE.
  • 00:44:03.260 --> 00:44:05.160
  • I'LL TAKE ALL THE BLESSINGS THAT COME WITH IT, TOO.
  • 00:44:05.180 --> 00:44:07.080
  • SO THE KEY IS PLAY IT AS WELL AS YOU CAN, AND
  • 00:44:07.100 --> 00:44:11.190
  • HOPEFULLY, YOU DON'T HAVE AS MANY CRITICS, BUT THEY'RE
  • 00:44:11.210 --> 00:44:14.100
  • BOUND TO HAPPEN FROM TIME TO TIME, AND YOU LIVE WITH IT.
  • 00:44:14.120 --> 00:44:16.260
  • AND AGAIN, YOU TRUST THE LORD, AND YOU SAY, LORD,
  • 00:44:16.280 --> 00:44:18.210
  • YOU'LL HANDLE IT, YOU'LL DEAL WITH IT.
  • 00:44:18.230 --> 00:44:20.100
  • I DON'T HAVE TO GO FIGHT THOSE BATTLES.
  • 00:44:20.120 --> 00:44:21.260
  • I'LL JUST STEWARD WHAT YOU'VE GIVEN ME AND LEAVE
  • 00:44:21.280 --> 00:44:23.090
  • THE REST TO YOU.
  • 00:44:23.110 --> 00:44:24.210
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:44:24.230 --> 00:44:28.290
  • - THIS IS ANOTHER PART OF YOUR HOME
  • 00:44:29.010 --> 00:44:30.150
  • AWAY FROM HOME, HUH?
  • 00:44:30.170 --> 00:44:31.290
  • - YES, THEY HIT A HOME RUN WHEN THEY BUILT THIS.
  • 00:44:32.010 --> 00:44:33.130
  • IT'S OUTSTANDING, AND THE CEILING IS SO HIGH SO THAT
  • 00:44:33.150 --> 00:44:35.010
  • WHEN THE PUNTER PUNTS, IT DOESN'T HIT THE CEILING.
  • 00:44:35.030 --> 00:44:37.160
  • SO WE REALLY CAN GET A FULL PRACTICE IN HERE, EVEN WHEN
  • 00:44:37.180 --> 00:44:39.240
  • IT COME TO PUNTING. SO NO COMPLAINTS FROM ME.
  • 00:44:39.260 --> 00:44:43.050
  • IT'S QUITE A PLACE.
  • 00:44:43.070 --> 00:44:44.220
  • - I'VE NEVER ASKED YOU THIS BEFORE, BUT WHAT
  • 00:44:44.240 --> 00:44:46.180
  • MIGHT THE FUTURE OFFER?
  • 00:44:46.200 --> 00:44:48.080
  • DO WE HAVE A PASTOR OR A BISHOP OR EVANGELIST IN
  • 00:44:48.100 --> 00:44:51.050
  • FRONT OF YOUR NAME AT SOME POINT?
  • 00:44:51.070 --> 00:44:53.010
  • - I DON'T KNOW. - YOU'RE DOING IT ANYWAY.
  • 00:44:53.030 --> 00:44:54.260
  • - YEAH, I ASK THAT QUESTION, AND I ASK THAT
  • 00:44:54.280 --> 00:44:57.000
  • QUESTION OF MY WIFE SOMETIMES, AND I THINK RIGHT
  • 00:44:57.020 --> 00:44:59.040
  • NOW THE ANSWER I GET BACK FROM THE LORD IS, YOU JUST
  • 00:44:59.060 --> 00:45:01.210
  • TAKE THE NEXT STEP, WHICH IS FOOTBALL RIGHT NOW, AND
  • 00:45:01.230 --> 00:45:03.210
  • HE'LL LEAD ME WHEN THE TIME COMES.
  • 00:45:03.230 --> 00:45:06.040
  • BUT I REALLY DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:45:06.060 --> 00:45:08.080
  • I'M INTERESTED TO SEE, VERY INTERESTED.
  • 00:45:08.100 --> 00:45:09.280
  • I HAVE SOME PASSIONS THAT I'VE LEARNED OVER THE LAST
  • 00:45:10.000 --> 00:45:12.240
  • COUPLE OF YEARS THAT ARE THERE THAT I NEVER KNEW WERE
  • 00:45:12.260 --> 00:45:15.130
  • THERE BEFORE. SO WE'LL SEE WHERE IT LEADS.
  • 00:45:15.150 --> 00:45:17.210
  • THE KEY IS THAT MY WIFE AND I KEEP AN OPEN HEART AND
  • 00:45:17.230 --> 00:45:19.130
  • MIND TO ALLOW HIM TO LEAD US WHENEVER THE TIME COMES.
  • 00:45:19.150 --> 00:45:21.190
  • - INTERESTING BECAUSE YOU MENTIONED IN THE OTHER PART
  • 00:45:21.210 --> 00:45:23.180
  • OF THIS FACILITY THAT YOU HADN'T EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT
  • 00:45:23.200 --> 00:45:25.210
  • BEING A PROFESSIONAL, BUT THE LORD HAS BROUGHT YOU HERE.
  • 00:45:25.230 --> 00:45:29.210
  • DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT EXACTLY HE WANTS YOU TO DO
  • 00:45:29.230 --> 00:45:32.260
  • ON THIS PLATFORM?
  • 00:45:32.280 --> 00:45:34.290
  • - WELL, I KNOW THAT I NEED TO STEWARD IT AND POINT
  • 00:45:35.010 --> 00:45:38.130
  • PEOPLE TO HIM, AND I THINK IT STARTS WITH BEING A GOOD
  • 00:45:38.150 --> 00:45:40.080
  • QUARTERBACK. I GOTTA BE GOOD.
  • 00:45:40.100 --> 00:45:42.060
  • - BOTTOM LINE, RIGHT?
  • 00:45:42.080 --> 00:45:43.210
  • - YOU GOTTA BE GOOD IN WHAT YOU DO, I GOTTA BE GOOD IN
  • 00:45:43.230 --> 00:45:45.180
  • WHAT I DO, OTHERWISE, OUR WITNESS IS A LITTLE BIT LOST.
  • 00:45:45.200 --> 00:45:47.200
  • THAT'S REALLY WHERE MY FOCUS IS, DOING THE BEST THAT I
  • 00:45:47.220 --> 00:45:50.130
  • CAN TO HELP OUR TEAM IN FOOTBALL GAMES.
  • 00:45:50.150 --> 00:45:52.260
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:45:52.280 --> 00:45:55.020
  • - WELL, YOU TALK ABOUT FOOTBALL BEING A GREAT
  • 00:45:55.040 --> 00:45:57.160
  • EXAMPLE OF THE GAME OF LIFE AND HOW YOU CAN
  • 00:45:57.180 --> 00:45:59.100
  • TURN THINGS AROUND.
  • 00:45:59.120 --> 00:46:01.080
  • YOU GUYS HAD A VERY MIDDLING START, IF YOU WILL, AT
  • 00:46:01.100 --> 00:46:03.130
  • 2 AND 2. IT SEEMS LIKE, WHAT ELSE IS NEW?
  • 00:46:03.150 --> 00:46:06.010
  • THE WIDE RECEIVERS ARE SAYING, CAN YOU
  • 00:46:06.030 --> 00:46:08.000
  • GET ME THE BALL?
  • 00:46:08.020 --> 00:46:09.200
  • BUT YOU GUYS HAD A REMARKABLE TURNAROUND.
  • 00:46:09.220 --> 00:46:11.080
  • TALK ABOUT WHAT WAS IMPORTANT AND WHAT WAS KEY
  • 00:46:11.100 --> 00:46:13.030
  • IN THAT TURNAROUND.
  • 00:46:13.050 --> 00:46:14.230
  • - JUST STAY THE COURSE.
  • 00:46:14.250 --> 00:46:16.140
  • WE FELT WE HAD A GOOD FOOTBALL TEAM, AND WHEN YOU
  • 00:46:16.160 --> 00:46:19.000
  • PLAY IN THIS LEAGUE, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A GAME OR TWO
  • 00:46:19.020 --> 00:46:21.170
  • THAT DON'T GO YOUR WAY, AND YOU JUST HAVE TO STAY THE
  • 00:46:21.190 --> 00:46:23.180
  • COURSE AND BELIEVE THAT OVER THE 16 GAME SEASON, THE
  • 00:46:23.200 --> 00:46:25.180
  • CREAM WILL RISE TO THE TOP.
  • 00:46:25.200 --> 00:46:27.120
  • AND SO I KNEW MY PREPARATION AND MY APPROACH WAS ONE THAT
  • 00:46:27.140 --> 00:46:30.230
  • HAD PROVEN TO WORK OVERTIME, AND I JUST NEEDED A LARGER
  • 00:46:30.250 --> 00:46:33.280
  • SAMPLE SIZE TO BE ABLE TO SHOW THAT, AND I THINK AS
  • 00:46:34.000 --> 00:46:36.150
  • THE WEEKS HAVE GONE ON, WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO HIT OUR
  • 00:46:36.170 --> 00:46:39.060
  • STRIDE SOMEWHAT, AND IT'S MADE A BIG DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:46:39.080 --> 00:46:41.120
  • - MY COLLEAGUE IN THE FOOTBALL STUDIO, BILL
  • 00:46:41.140 --> 00:46:44.170
  • COWHER, SAYS USUALLY, BECAUSE OF THE RULES NOW
  • 00:46:44.190 --> 00:46:47.020
  • WITH OT'S, OPTIONAL TRAINING ACTIVITY OR EVEN IN TRAINING
  • 00:46:47.040 --> 00:46:49.290
  • CAMP, THAT THE FIRST FOUR GAMES OF THE REGULAR SEASON,
  • 00:46:50.010 --> 00:46:53.180
  • YOU'RE REALLY KIND OF FINDING OUT WHO YOU ARE AND
  • 00:46:53.200 --> 00:46:56.150
  • WHAT YOUR WEAKNESSES ARE SO YOU CAN MASK THEM AND
  • 00:46:56.170 --> 00:46:58.270
  • MAXIMIZE THE STRENGTHS.
  • 00:46:58.290 --> 00:47:00.220
  • THEN HE TALKS ABOUT THE MIDDLE EIGHT GAMES YOU'RE
  • 00:47:00.240 --> 00:47:03.000
  • NAVIGATING THE MURKY WATERS, AND THEN YOU WANT TO
  • 00:47:03.020 --> 00:47:04.260
  • GO INTO THE FINAL FOUR WITH MOMENTUM.
  • 00:47:04.280 --> 00:47:06.140
  • YOU GUYS ARE IN THE POST SEASON NOW WITH SOME GREAT
  • 00:47:06.160 --> 00:47:08.280
  • MOMENTUM, BUT IT'S ONE GAME AND OUT.
  • 00:47:09.000 --> 00:47:12.010
  • WHAT'S THE FOCUS AS YOU GUYS ARE NOW IN THE POST SEASON?
  • 00:47:12.030 --> 00:47:14.250
  • - WELL, YOU KNOW, EVERYTHING RATCHETS UP A
  • 00:47:14.270 --> 00:47:17.230
  • BIT; SPEED OF THE GAME, THE INTENSITY,
  • 00:47:17.250 --> 00:47:19.290
  • KNOWING WHAT'S AT STAKE.
  • 00:47:20.010 --> 00:47:21.260
  • I THINK THERE'S GREET ENERGY AND EXCITEMENT.
  • 00:47:21.280 --> 00:47:23.200
  • EVERYBODY'S FEELING GOOD ABOUT YOURSELVES IN IF
  • 00:47:23.220 --> 00:47:25.090
  • YOU'RE IN THE POST SEASON.
  • 00:47:25.110 --> 00:47:27.030
  • SO WE JUST NEED TO BE DETAILED IN OUR PREPARATION,
  • 00:47:27.050 --> 00:47:29.050
  • PLAY WITH A GREAT DEAL OF HEART AND FIGHT FOR
  • 00:47:29.070 --> 00:47:32.190
  • THE GUY NEXT TO US.
  • 00:47:32.210 --> 00:47:34.140
  • AND IF YOU DO THAT, LET THE CHIPS FALL WHERE THEY MAY.
  • 00:47:34.160 --> 00:47:37.190
  • - AS WE KNOW, THE WORLD OF PROFESSIONAL SPORTS PERIOD,
  • 00:47:37.210 --> 00:47:40.150
  • AND CERTAINLY FOOTBALL, IT'S A TOUGH ENVIRONMENT, AND
  • 00:47:40.170 --> 00:47:43.090
  • THERE ARE SOME PRETTY TOUGH CHARACTERS THAT YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:47:43.110 --> 00:47:45.140
  • DEAL WITH, AS WELL.
  • 00:47:45.160 --> 00:47:47.130
  • BUT I FOUND IT INTERESTING THAT YOU EVEN TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:47:47.150 --> 00:47:49.260
  • HOW JESUS DISPLAYED THE DUALITY OF THE TOUGHNESS OF
  • 00:47:49.280 --> 00:47:53.140
  • JESUS, BUT YOU ALSO TALKED ABOUT THE
  • 00:47:53.160 --> 00:47:55.220
  • GENTLENESS OF JESUS.
  • 00:47:55.240 --> 00:47:59.080
  • HOW DO YOUR TEAMMATES DEAL WITH YOU IN THAT YOU ARE
  • 00:47:59.100 --> 00:48:01.090
  • UNASHAMEDLY A MAN OF GOD IN WHAT CAN BE A
  • 00:48:01.110 --> 00:48:04.150
  • TOUGH LOCKER ROOM?
  • 00:48:04.170 --> 00:48:06.040
  • - YEAH, I THINK WHAT I WANT TO SHOW WHEN I SAY I SHINE
  • 00:48:06.060 --> 00:48:08.190
  • MY LIGHT TO OTHER PEOPLE IS I WANT TO SHOW A TOUGHNESS,
  • 00:48:08.210 --> 00:48:11.130
  • AN INTENSITY, THAT I DO THINK REALLY IS A REFLECTION
  • 00:48:11.150 --> 00:48:15.120
  • OF THE GOD THAT I SERVE.
  • 00:48:15.140 --> 00:48:17.060
  • I THINK WHEN YOU STUDY THE LIFE OF JESUS,
  • 00:48:17.080 --> 00:48:18.270
  • YOU SEE TOUGHNESS.
  • 00:48:18.290 --> 00:48:20.180
  • YOU SEE INTENSITY, PASSION, COMMITMENT.
  • 00:48:20.200 --> 00:48:24.190
  • SO I WANT TO REFLECT THAT, BUT I ALSO THINK
  • 00:48:24.210 --> 00:48:26.140
  • YOU SEE HUMILITY.
  • 00:48:26.160 --> 00:48:28.260
  • YOU SEE SOMEONE WHO ACKNOWLEDGED THAT REALLY
  • 00:48:28.280 --> 00:48:33.070
  • THE WAY UP IS THE WAY DOWN AND TO BECOME A SERVANT
  • 00:48:33.090 --> 00:48:35.220
  • AND TO BECOME THE LEAST OF THESE.
  • 00:48:35.240 --> 00:48:37.150
  • SO I WANT TO ALSO PROJECT THAT, AND I THINK IT MAY
  • 00:48:37.170 --> 00:48:41.210
  • SOUND LIKE I'M TALKING OUT TWO SIDES OF MY MOUTH, BUT I
  • 00:48:41.230 --> 00:48:44.000
  • DO THINK WITH THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, YOU CAN
  • 00:48:44.020 --> 00:48:47.020
  • LIVE A LIFE THAT IS BOTH INTENSE, COMMITTED,
  • 00:48:47.040 --> 00:48:50.260
  • PASSIONATE, INSPIRATIONAL, BUT THEN ALSO
  • 00:48:50.280 --> 00:48:53.260
  • HUMBLE AND MEEK.
  • 00:48:53.280 --> 00:49:00.110
  • AND SO THAT'S SOMETHING I'VE ALWAYS STRIVED
  • 00:49:00.130 --> 00:49:01.200
  • TO TRY TO EMBODY.
  • 00:49:01.220 --> 00:49:03.170
  • - IT'S INTERESTING TO ME THAT I'VE BEEN BLESSED TO
  • 00:49:03.190 --> 00:49:05.120
  • MINISTER A NUMBER OF PLACES AROUND THE COUNTRY, AND I
  • 00:49:05.140 --> 00:49:07.180
  • GIVE THIS ONE PASTOR THE CREDIT FOR A SERMON THAT I
  • 00:49:07.200 --> 00:49:11.010
  • HEARD HIM GIVE, PASTOR KEVIN COSBY OUT OF
  • 00:49:11.030 --> 00:49:14.240
  • LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY.
  • 00:49:14.260 --> 00:49:16.180
  • AND WE TALK ABOUT HOW SPORTS IS A MICROCOSM FOR LIFE, FOR
  • 00:49:16.200 --> 00:49:20.070
  • SURE THE LESSONS TO BE LEARNED THAT WE'VE
  • 00:49:20.090 --> 00:49:22.210
  • BEEN TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:49:22.230 --> 00:49:24.180
  • THIS ONE SERMON SEEMS TO BE THE ONE THAT HAS REALLY
  • 00:49:24.200 --> 00:49:27.230
  • STUCK WITH ME AND RESONATED, AND IT'S CALLED BREAK THE
  • 00:49:27.250 --> 00:49:30.090
  • HUDDLE AND RUN THE PLAY BASED ON THE BOOK OF JAMES
  • 00:49:30.110 --> 00:49:33.280
  • CHAPTER 2 VERSES 14 THROUGH 26.
  • 00:49:34.000 --> 00:49:36.170
  • FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD, SO RUN THE PLAY.
  • 00:49:36.190 --> 00:49:40.060
  • WHAT IS THE PLAY BOOK FOR LIFE FOR KIRK COUSINS?
  • 00:49:40.080 --> 00:49:47.180
  • - WELL, JUST LIKE YOU HAVE A PLAY BOOK WITH THE
  • 00:49:47.200 --> 00:49:50.000
  • FOOTBALL TEAM, AND IT'S YOUR LIFELINE.
  • 00:49:50.020 --> 00:49:51.270
  • IF YOU DON'T GET INTO THE PLAY BOOK AND KNOW IT, YOU
  • 00:49:51.290 --> 00:49:53.280
  • HAVE NO CHANCE NO MATTER HOW ATHLETIC YOU MAY BE.
  • 00:49:54.000 --> 00:49:56.010
  • THE SAME IS TRUE FOR LIFE.
  • 00:49:56.030 --> 00:49:58.080
  • THE PLAY BOOK FOR LIFE IS THE BIBLE, AND IF YOU ALLOW
  • 00:49:58.100 --> 00:50:02.090
  • IT TO SIT ON A SHELF AND COLLECT DUST, AND YOU DON'T
  • 00:50:02.110 --> 00:50:04.270
  • SPEND TIME IN IT, EVENTUALLY, THE STORMS ARE
  • 00:50:04.290 --> 00:50:07.150
  • GOING TO COME IN LIFE, AND YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE READY
  • 00:50:07.170 --> 00:50:10.010
  • TO HANDLE THEM AND TO KNOW HOW TO DISCERN WHAT TO DO OR
  • 00:50:10.030 --> 00:50:12.070
  • HOW TO MOVE FORWARD.
  • 00:50:12.090 --> 00:50:14.120
  • BUT WHEN YOU'RE ROOTED IN SCRIPTURE, AND YOU'RE
  • 00:50:14.140 --> 00:50:16.220
  • STUDYING THE WORD, AND YOU'RE READING IT ON A DAILY
  • 00:50:16.240 --> 00:50:19.100
  • BASIS, AND YOU'RE IN IT, THERE'S POWER IN THAT.
  • 00:50:19.120 --> 00:50:22.120
  • AND THE STORMS ARE GOING TO COME, STILL.
  • 00:50:22.140 --> 00:50:24.110
  • THE STORMS DON'T STAY AWAY JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE READING
  • 00:50:24.130 --> 00:50:27.000
  • THE BIBLE, BUT WHEN THEY DO COME, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:50:27.020 --> 00:50:29.270
  • THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND THEM, AND THE SAME
  • 00:50:29.290 --> 00:50:32.200
  • CIRCUMSTANCES THAT THE ENEMY IS GOING TO TRY TO USE TO
  • 00:50:32.220 --> 00:50:35.040
  • DESTROY YOU, GOD WILL USE TO BUILD YOU.
  • 00:50:35.060 --> 00:50:36.290
  • AND SO YOU GOT TO BE IN THE PLAY BOOK, WHETHER IT'S AS A
  • 00:50:37.010 --> 00:50:39.140
  • FOOTBALL PLAYER OR AS A PERSON, YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:50:39.160 --> 00:50:41.050
  • BE IN THE PLAY BOOK.
  • 00:50:41.070 --> 00:50:43.000
  • - HAVE YOU SEEN SOME FRUIT OUT OF THE MODEL THAT YOU
  • 00:50:43.020 --> 00:50:45.170
  • TRY TO BE MODELING FOR BEING AN AMBASSADOR
  • 00:50:45.190 --> 00:50:48.010
  • FOR JESUS CHRIST?
  • 00:50:48.030 --> 00:50:49.240
  • HAVE YOU SEEN SOME FRUIT ALONG THE WAY?
  • 00:50:49.260 --> 00:50:51.140
  • - YOU KNOW I THINK YES, YOU DO, YOU SEE SMALL STEPS.
  • 00:50:51.160 --> 00:50:55.260
  • AND YET, ALSO, I FEEL THAT FOR MANY OF US WE WON'T SEE
  • 00:50:55.280 --> 00:50:59.190
  • ON THIS SIDE OF ETERNITY WHAT GOD DID WITH OUR
  • 00:50:59.210 --> 00:51:03.100
  • INVOLVEMENTS. EVEN THIS INTERVIEW.
  • 00:51:03.120 --> 00:51:06.020
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHO IT WILL REACH, HOW IT
  • 00:51:06.040 --> 00:51:08.100
  • WILL IMPACT PEOPLE.
  • 00:51:08.120 --> 00:51:10.060
  • YOUR INVOLVEMENT WITH THIS NETWORK, WE DON'T KNOW MAYBE
  • 00:51:10.080 --> 00:51:12.000
  • THIS SIDE OF HEAVEN, BUT SOMEDAY, IT WILL
  • 00:51:12.020 --> 00:51:13.290
  • ALL BE UNDERSTOOD.
  • 00:51:14.010 --> 00:51:16.080
  • AND AS I LIKE TO SAY TO PEOPLE, THE CURRENT DEATH
  • 00:51:16.100 --> 00:51:19.060
  • RATE IS A HUNDRED PERCENT.
  • 00:51:19.080 --> 00:51:21.030
  • WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE, AND WE'RE ALL GOING TO STAND
  • 00:51:21.050 --> 00:51:23.130
  • BEFORE A HOLY GOD WHO'S GOING TO SAY, WHAT DID YOU
  • 00:51:23.150 --> 00:51:26.190
  • DO WITH WHAT I GAVE YOU?
  • 00:51:26.210 --> 00:51:28.160
  • AND I WANT TO HAVE A GOOD ANSWER FOR THAT QUESTION.
  • 00:51:28.180 --> 00:51:31.060
  • SO I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT I'M STEWARDING IT WELL,
  • 00:51:31.080 --> 00:51:34.160
  • SHINING MY LIGHT, SOWING SEED, AND I'LL LET
  • 00:51:34.180 --> 00:51:38.050
  • GOD DO THE GROWING.
  • 00:51:38.070 --> 00:51:40.160
  • - AS WE HEAD DOWN THE HOME STRETCH HERE, I HAVE TO ASK
  • 00:51:40.180 --> 00:51:43.050
  • BECAUSE, AGAIN, FOOTBALL IS A PLATFORM THAT THE
  • 00:51:43.070 --> 00:51:45.050
  • LORD HAS GIVEN YOU. IT'S A MAJOR PLATFORM.
  • 00:51:45.070 --> 00:51:47.060
  • YOU LOVE KIDS, YOUR FOOTBALL CAMP, AND I KNOW, YES,
  • 00:51:47.080 --> 00:51:49.180
  • YOU'RE TEACHING THEM THE FUNDAMENTALS OF FOOTBALL,
  • 00:51:49.200 --> 00:51:53.000
  • BUT THERE ARE SOME LIFE LESSONS, MANY OF WHICH WE'VE
  • 00:51:53.020 --> 00:51:55.180
  • TALKED ABOUT THROUGH THIS INTERVIEW.
  • 00:51:55.200 --> 00:51:57.110
  • BUT YOUR FOOTBALL CAMP, WHAT MESSAGE ARE YOU TRYING TO
  • 00:51:57.130 --> 00:51:59.280
  • COMMUNICATE AND DELIVER TO THE YOUNG KIDS?
  • 00:52:00.020 --> 00:52:02.250
  • - WELL, FOOTBALL IS REALLY A VEHICLE BY WHICH TO SPREAD
  • 00:52:02.270 --> 00:52:04.230
  • THE GOSPEL FOR ME AT THAT FOOTBALL CAMP.
  • 00:52:04.250 --> 00:52:08.140
  • I'M BUSY ENOUGH.
  • 00:52:08.160 --> 00:52:10.010
  • I DON'T NEED TO GIVE UP THREE DAYS OF MY TIME IN THE
  • 00:52:10.030 --> 00:52:12.110
  • SUMMER TO DO THIS CAMP IF WE'RE JUST GOING TO TEACH
  • 00:52:12.130 --> 00:52:14.130
  • THEM HOW TO RUN THEM THROUGH A TACKLING DUMMY.
  • 00:52:14.150 --> 00:52:16.120
  • SO WE USE FOOTBALL, THAT'S CERTAINLY THE MEDIUM THAT WE
  • 00:52:16.140 --> 00:52:20.280
  • USE TO HAVE KIDS THERE AND COMPETE AND HAVE SOMETHING
  • 00:52:21.000 --> 00:52:23.110
  • TO GATHER AROUND AND CONNECT OVER, BUT WE GIVE THEM A
  • 00:52:23.130 --> 00:52:27.170
  • BIBLE VERSE IN THE DAY.
  • 00:52:27.190 --> 00:52:29.160
  • WE ASK THEM TO MEMORIZE IT.
  • 00:52:29.180 --> 00:52:32.050
  • BETWEEN EACH PRACTICE SESSION, WE BRING THEM UP,
  • 00:52:32.070 --> 00:52:34.020
  • AND WE TALK ABOUT WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A GREAT FRIEND,
  • 00:52:34.040 --> 00:52:37.170
  • WHAT IT MEANS TO SUBMIT TO YOUR PARENTS AND TO SUBMIT
  • 00:52:37.190 --> 00:52:41.040
  • TO AUTHORITY, WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A GREAT TEAMMATE.
  • 00:52:41.060 --> 00:52:43.180
  • AND REALLY WE SHARE WITH THEM THE GOSPEL, AND WE TALK
  • 00:52:43.200 --> 00:52:47.000
  • TO THEM ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF GIVING YOUR LIFE
  • 00:52:47.020 --> 00:52:48.250
  • TO JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:52:48.270 --> 00:52:50.150
  • SO THAT'S WHAT MAKES THE THREE DAYS WELL WORTH MY
  • 00:52:50.170 --> 00:52:53.070
  • TIME, AND THE CAMP HAS BEEN SUCH A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE
  • 00:52:53.090 --> 00:52:56.010
  • FOR THE KIDS AND FOR US AS A FAMILY THAT WE'VE NOW DONE
  • 00:52:56.030 --> 00:52:58.020
  • IT BOTH IN MICHIGAN AND MINNESOTA EACH SUMMER.
  • 00:52:58.040 --> 00:53:01.060
  • SO IT'S A TWO-LOCATION THING, AND IF THE LORD
  • 00:53:01.080 --> 00:53:05.060
  • CONTINUES TO BLESS IT, WE MAY TRY TO DO MORE,
  • 00:53:05.080 --> 00:53:07.060
  • BUT IT'S BEEN A REALLY COOL EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:53:07.080 --> 00:53:09.250
  • - HEY, KIRK, AS WE SPREAD DOWN THE HOME STRETCH HERE
  • 00:53:09.270 --> 00:53:12.210
  • AGAIN, THIS MESSAGE OF YOURS IS RESONATING ACROSS THE
  • 00:53:12.230 --> 00:53:16.020
  • GLOBE, AND IF YOU HAD A MESSAGE FOR THOSE WHO ARE
  • 00:53:16.040 --> 00:53:19.260
  • OUT THERE WHEN ARE LOOKING TO SEE WHETHER OR NOT THEY
  • 00:53:19.280 --> 00:53:22.150
  • WANT TO JOIN YOUR TEAM, WHICH IS THE TEAM COACHED BY
  • 00:53:22.170 --> 00:53:27.230
  • JESUS CHRIST WHAT WOULD THAT MESSAGE BE?
  • 00:53:27.250 --> 00:53:30.030
  • - WELL, I WOULD SAY INVESTIGATE IT FOR YOURSELF,
  • 00:53:30.050 --> 00:53:33.120
  • BUT DO THE RESEARCH.
  • 00:53:33.140 --> 00:53:35.160
  • THERE ARE TOO MANY PEOPLE WHEN I SAY, HEY, CURRENT
  • 00:53:35.180 --> 00:53:38.070
  • DEATH RATE IS A HUNDRED PERCENT.
  • 00:53:38.090 --> 00:53:39.290
  • WHEN YOU DIE, WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN?
  • 00:53:40.010 --> 00:53:41.160
  • AND THEY SAY, I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:53:41.180 --> 00:53:42.290
  • AND I SAY, ARE YOU CONTENT WITH THAT ANSWER?
  • 00:53:43.010 --> 00:53:44.230
  • THAT'S NOT A VERY GOOD ANSWER CONSIDERING IT'S COMING.
  • 00:53:44.250 --> 00:53:47.220
  • DON'T YOU WANT TO HAVE ANSWERS?
  • 00:53:47.240 --> 00:53:50.030
  • DON'T YOU WANT TO BE AT PEACE?
  • 00:53:50.050 --> 00:53:52.200
  • AND SO THEN WE TALK FURTHER ABOUT WHAT ARE YOU
  • 00:53:52.220 --> 00:53:54.080
  • GOING TO DO WITH JESUS?
  • 00:53:54.100 --> 00:53:55.200
  • HE SAID HE WAS THE SON OF GOD, HE SAID HE WAS THE ONLY
  • 00:53:55.220 --> 00:53:57.010
  • WAY TO THE FATHER.
  • 00:53:57.030 --> 00:53:58.170
  • THOSE ARE PRETTY EXCLUSIVE CLAIMS.
  • 00:53:58.190 --> 00:54:00.050
  • HE'S EITHER A LIAR, HE WAS A LUNATIC, OR HE'S LORD,
  • 00:54:00.070 --> 00:54:03.000
  • AND YOU HAVE TO TAKE HIM AT HIS WORD.
  • 00:54:03.020 --> 00:54:04.130
  • AND SO I WOULD JUST CHALLENGE PEOPLE TO SAY DO
  • 00:54:04.150 --> 00:54:07.140
  • THE INVESTIGATION FOR YOURSELF, AND I THINK IF YOU
  • 00:54:07.160 --> 00:54:09.160
  • REALLY DIVE IN AND STUDY IT, YOU'LL FIND THAT HE WASN'T A
  • 00:54:09.180 --> 00:54:13.200
  • LIAR, HE WASN'T A LUNATIC, HE WAS THE REAL DEAL.
  • 00:54:13.220 --> 00:54:16.100
  • AND THERE'S A REASON THAT, TWO THOUSAND YEARS LATER,
  • 00:54:16.120 --> 00:54:18.190
  • WE'RE STILL TALKING ABOUT HIM, AND HE'S THE CENTRAL
  • 00:54:18.210 --> 00:54:20.220
  • FIGURE IN THE HUMAN RACE BECAUSE OF WHO HE WAS.
  • 00:54:20.240 --> 00:54:24.000
  • HE WAS THE REAL DEAL.
  • 00:54:24.020 --> 00:54:25.260
  • SO I WOULD CHALLENGE YOU TO DO THAT INVESTIGATION AND
  • 00:54:25.280 --> 00:54:27.200
  • COME TO FIND OUT WHO HE REALLY IS.
  • 00:54:27.220 --> 00:54:29.280
  • - AS WE GET SET TO SAY GOODBYE, I'M REMINDED AS I
  • 00:54:30.000 --> 00:54:32.020
  • JUST LISTENED TO ALL THAT KIRK COUSINS SHARED WITH US,
  • 00:54:32.040 --> 00:54:35.290
  • MANY PEOPLE IN THE STANDS THINK THAT MANY TIMES THE
  • 00:54:36.010 --> 00:54:38.210
  • QUARTERBACK IS CALLING ALL THE PLAYS ON THE FIELD,
  • 00:54:38.230 --> 00:54:40.230
  • AND THAT'S NOT NECESSARILY THE CASE.
  • 00:54:40.250 --> 00:54:42.240
  • AND CERTAINLY IN THE LIFE OF KIRK COUSINS, HE KNOWS WHO
  • 00:54:42.260 --> 00:54:45.240
  • THE OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR IS.
  • 00:54:45.260 --> 00:54:48.280
  • IF YOU LOOK AROUND THE STADIUM, USUALLY SITTING
  • 00:54:49.000 --> 00:54:51.100
  • HIGH IN THE STADIUM IS THE OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR WHO
  • 00:54:51.120 --> 00:54:54.120
  • CAN SEE THE ENTIRE FIELD, AND HE SEES WHAT THE DEFENSE
  • 00:54:54.140 --> 00:54:57.020
  • IS TRYING TO DO TO STOP THE OFFENSE.
  • 00:54:57.040 --> 00:54:59.240
  • THAT'S WHY KIRK'S OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR IS GOD HIMSELF.
  • 00:54:59.260 --> 00:55:03.290
  • HIS PLAYS COME IN FROM THE MAN WHO SEES THE END FROM
  • 00:55:04.010 --> 00:55:06.160
  • THE BEGINNING, AND HE'S BEEN RUNNING HIS PLAYS.
  • 00:55:06.180 --> 00:55:11.010
  • WE CERTAINLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO THE SAME.
  • 00:55:11.030 --> 00:55:12.280
  • KIRK, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME.
  • 00:55:13.000 --> 00:55:14.280
  • GOD BLESS YOU AND CONTINUED SUCCESS IN
  • 00:55:15.000 --> 00:55:16.100
  • ALL THAT YOU'RE DOING.
  • 00:55:16.120 --> 00:55:18.010
  • AND WE THANK YOU FOR TUNING INTO ANOTHER EDITION OF
  • 00:55:18.030 --> 00:55:19.250
  • PRAISE AND A VERY WORTHY GUEST, KIRK COUSINS.
  • 00:55:19.270 --> 00:55:22.280
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:55:23.000 --> 00:55:34.230
