  • CHECK OUT THIS CLIP
  • 00:00:14.250 --> 00:00:15.210
  • - WHAT WE END UP DOING IS
  • 00:00:18.060 --> 00:00:19.030
  • WE DEAL WITH THE SURFACE
  • 00:00:19.030 --> 00:00:20.100
  • OF THINGS,
  • 00:00:20.100 --> 00:00:21.280
  • BUT WE NEVER DEAL WITH
  • 00:00:21.280 --> 00:00:22.280
  • WHAT'S BELOW THE SURFACE.
  • 00:00:22.280 --> 00:00:25.000
  • AND HONESTLY,
  • 00:00:25.000 --> 00:00:25.160
  • IF WE'VE GROWN UP IN CHURCH,
  • 00:00:25.160 --> 00:00:26.210
  • THIS IS KIND OF WHAT
  • 00:00:26.210 --> 00:00:27.100
  • CHURCH TEACHES YOU,
  • 00:00:27.100 --> 00:00:28.060
  • UNFORTUNATELY.
  • 00:00:28.060 --> 00:00:29.150
  • RELIGION TEACHES YOU TO DEAL
  • 00:00:29.150 --> 00:00:31.200
  • WITH THE SURFACE-Y THINGS,
  • 00:00:31.200 --> 00:00:33.170
  • JESUS CAME TO DEAL
  • 00:00:33.170 --> 00:00:34.220
  • WE PAINT UP THE TREE.
  • 00:00:36.040 --> 00:00:37.260
  • WE TRY TO MAKE
  • 00:00:37.260 --> 00:00:38.140
  • THE TREE LOOK BETTER.
  • 00:00:38.140 --> 00:00:39.230
  • THE QUESTION WE ASK IS
  • 00:00:39.230 --> 00:00:40.170
  • "DOES IT LOOK GOOD?",
  • 00:00:40.170 --> 00:00:41.170
  • WHAT IS THE ROOT SYSTEM
  • 00:00:44.040 --> 00:00:45.010
  • OF MY LIFE?
  • 00:00:45.010 --> 00:00:46.160
  • WHAT IS THAT?
  • 00:00:46.160 --> 00:00:47.150
  • HOW HAS GOD MADE ME?
  • 00:00:47.150 --> 00:00:49.060
  • I'M CONVINCED THAT MOST OF US
  • 00:00:49.060 --> 00:00:50.030
  • DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND
  • 00:00:50.030 --> 00:00:50.280
  • HOW GOD HAS MADE US,
  • 00:00:50.280 --> 00:00:52.180
  • AND SO IF WE DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:00:52.180 --> 00:00:53.140
  • HOW GOD HAS MADE US,
  • 00:00:53.140 --> 00:00:54.100
  • WE WILL LIVE FOREVER
  • 00:00:54.100 --> 00:00:55.040
  • SO, YOU ARE NOT A HUMAN
  • 00:00:57.290 --> 00:01:01.010
  • THAT HAS SOME
  • 00:01:01.010 --> 00:01:01.210
  • SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCES,
  • 00:01:01.210 --> 00:01:04.060
  • YOU ARE A SPIRIT
  • 00:01:04.060 --> 00:01:06.000
  • THAT IS HAVING
  • 00:01:06.000 --> 00:01:06.170
  • THE SPIRIT HAS TO BE
  • 00:01:09.110 --> 00:01:12.000
  • WHAT OVERCOMES THE MIND,
  • 00:01:12.000 --> 00:01:13.210
  • WILL, AND EMOTION.
  • 00:01:13.210 --> 00:01:14.110
  • SO, HOW DO I DO THAT?
  • 00:01:14.160 --> 00:01:17.160
  • WELL, YOU FEED WHAT YOU WANT.
  • 00:01:18.110 --> 00:01:21.110
  • WHATEVER YOU FEED
  • 00:01:21.110 --> 00:01:23.100
  • IS WHAT WILL WIN, EVERY TIME.
  • 00:01:23.260 --> 00:01:26.260
  • WHATEVER YOU FEED
  • 00:01:26.260 --> 00:01:27.170
  • IF YOU'LL FEED THE ROOTS,
  • 00:01:29.100 --> 00:01:31.010
  • - WE BELIEVE THAT AS YOU INVEST
  • 00:01:35.120 --> 00:01:36.150
  • THE NEXT FEW MOMENTS
  • 00:01:36.150 --> 00:01:37.100
  • IN LISTENING TO TODAY'S SERMON,
  • 00:01:37.100 --> 00:01:39.000
  • THAT YOUR LIFE
  • 00:01:39.000 --> 00:01:39.130
  • COULD CHANGE FOREVER.
  • 00:01:39.130 --> 00:01:41.010
  • SO, LET'S LEAN IN TOGETHER
  • 00:01:41.010 --> 00:01:42.090
  • AND HEAR ALL THAT
  • 00:01:42.090 --> 00:01:42.290
  • - WE'RE STARTING
  • 00:01:52.090 --> 00:01:52.220
  • A NEW SERIES TODAY CALLED
  • 00:01:52.220 --> 00:01:53.170
  • "COUNSELOR, "
  • 00:01:53.170 --> 00:01:54.120
  • 'CAUSE EVERYBODY NEEDS
  • 00:01:54.120 --> 00:01:55.110
  • SOME COUNSELING.
  • 00:01:55.110 --> 00:01:57.030
  • COME ON, SOMEBODY.

  • SOME OF YOU ARE LIKE,
  • 00:01:59.090 --> 00:02:00.110
  • YOU'RE A LITTLE HYPER-SPIRITUAL,
  • 00:02:00.110 --> 00:02:02.160
  • HOITY-TOITY.
  • 00:02:02.160 --> 00:02:03.130
  • YOU'RE LIKE, I DON'T THINK
  • 00:02:03.130 --> 00:02:04.100

  • THAT PROVES
  • 00:02:05.200 --> 00:02:06.090
  • YOU NEED SOME COUNSELING.
  • 00:02:06.090 --> 00:02:08.070
  • AMEN?
  • 00:02:08.070 --> 00:02:09.040
  • THE CIRCLES THAT I GREW UP IN,
  • 00:02:09.040 --> 00:02:10.110
  • EVEN THE CHURCH CIRCLE
  • 00:02:10.110 --> 00:02:11.110
  • THAT I GREW UP IN, I MEAN,
  • 00:02:11.110 --> 00:02:12.150
  • IT WAS KIND OF LIKE,
  • 00:02:12.150 --> 00:02:13.140
  • IT WAS KIND OF LOOKED DOWN ON,
  • 00:02:13.140 --> 00:02:14.260
  • AND EVEN IF
  • 00:02:14.260 --> 00:02:15.110
  • YOU LOOK AT TV PROGRAM
  • 00:02:15.110 --> 00:02:17.090
  • AROUND THE TIME I GREW UP,
  • 00:02:17.090 --> 00:02:18.240
  • THEY WOULD SAY THINGS LIKE -
  • 00:02:18.240 --> 00:02:20.090
  • IT WAS KIND OF JABBED AT
  • 00:02:20.090 --> 00:02:21.030
  • THAT YOU WENT --
  • 00:02:21.030 --> 00:02:21.210
  • THEY CALLED IT
  • 00:02:21.210 --> 00:02:22.030
  • YOU WENT TO A SHRINK,
  • 00:02:22.030 --> 00:02:23.180
  • IF YOU REMEMBER THAT.
  • 00:02:23.180 --> 00:02:24.120
  • LIKE, YOU WENT TO A SHRINK.
  • 00:02:24.120 --> 00:02:25.150
  • BUT I WOULD PROPOSE THAT
  • 00:02:25.150 --> 00:02:26.160
  • EVERYBODY NEEDS TO GET ON
  • 00:02:26.160 --> 00:02:27.250
  • THE CHAIR SOMETIMES.
  • 00:02:27.250 --> 00:02:29.260
  • EVERYBODY NEEDS A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:02:29.260 --> 00:02:30.190
  • OF TIME TO DEAL WITH
  • 00:02:30.190 --> 00:02:31.170
  • SOME OF THE THINGS
  • 00:02:31.170 --> 00:02:32.150
  • THAT WE DEAL WITH,
  • 00:02:32.150 --> 00:02:33.030
  • 'CAUSE HERE'S THE DEAL.
  • 00:02:33.030 --> 00:02:34.040
  • SOME OF US FIND OURSELVES
  • 00:02:34.040 --> 00:02:35.170
  • IN SITUATIONS
  • 00:02:35.170 --> 00:02:36.050
  • WHERE WE'RE DEALING WITH
  • 00:02:36.050 --> 00:02:37.050
  • ISSUES OF LIFE,
  • 00:02:37.050 --> 00:02:39.160
  • AND WE'RE TRYING OUR BEST,
  • 00:02:39.160 --> 00:02:41.190
  • AND HERE'S WHAT
  • 00:02:41.190 --> 00:02:42.020
  • WE END UP DOING,
  • 00:02:42.020 --> 00:02:42.290
  • IS WE DEAL WITH
  • 00:02:42.290 --> 00:02:43.180
  • THE SURFACE OF THINGS,
  • 00:02:43.180 --> 00:02:45.290
  • BUT WE NEVER DEAL WITH
  • 00:02:45.290 --> 00:02:46.280
  • WHAT'S BELOW THE SURFACE.
  • 00:02:46.280 --> 00:02:49.000
  • AND HONESTLY,
  • 00:02:49.000 --> 00:02:49.160
  • IF WE'VE GROWN UP IN CHURCH,
  • 00:02:49.160 --> 00:02:50.200
  • THIS IS KIND OF WHAT
  • 00:02:50.200 --> 00:02:51.100
  • CHURCH TEACHES YOU,
  • 00:02:51.100 --> 00:02:52.060
  • UNFORTUNATELY.
  • 00:02:52.060 --> 00:02:53.150
  • RELIGION TEACHES YOU TO DEAL
  • 00:02:53.150 --> 00:02:55.200
  • WITH THE SURFACE-Y THINGS,
  • 00:02:55.200 --> 00:02:57.170
  • JESUS CAME TO DEAL
  • 00:02:57.170 --> 00:02:58.220
  • WITH THE ROOT THINGS.
  • 00:02:58.220 --> 00:03:00.160
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:03:00.160 --> 00:03:01.140
  • AND SO, IT'S DEALING WITH
  • 00:03:01.140 --> 00:03:02.090
  • ALL OF THIS ROOT STUFF.
  • 00:03:02.090 --> 00:03:05.040
  • I'M GONNA DRAW YOU A PICTURE.
  • 00:03:05.040 --> 00:03:06.060
  • IT'S JUST DEALING WITH
  • 00:03:06.060 --> 00:03:07.070
  • WHAT'S ON THE SURFACE,
  • 00:03:07.070 --> 00:03:08.240
  • SO THIS WOULD BE THE GROUND.
  • 00:03:08.240 --> 00:03:10.060
  • I'M NOT AN ARTIST.
  • 00:03:10.060 --> 00:03:11.030
  • THIS IS THE GRASS.
  • 00:03:12.040 --> 00:03:15.040
  • AND THIS IS THE TREE, LIMBS,
  • 00:03:17.150 --> 00:03:20.150
  • AND THEN UNDERNEATH THIS,
  • 00:03:20.150 --> 00:03:21.210
  • YOU HAVE WHAT?
  • 00:03:21.210 --> 00:03:23.220
  • YOU HAVE THE ROOT SYSTEM, RIGHT?
  • 00:03:23.220 --> 00:03:26.200
  • YOU HAVE ROOTS,
  • 00:03:26.200 --> 00:03:28.180
  • AND IF YOU HAVE UNGODLY ROOTS,
  • 00:03:28.180 --> 00:03:29.190
  • THEY COME UP AND MESS UP
  • 00:03:29.190 --> 00:03:30.120
  • YOUR GRASS AND YOUR TOPSOIL.
  • 00:03:30.120 --> 00:03:32.060
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:03:32.060 --> 00:03:34.250
  • AND THEY GET ALL UP
  • 00:03:34.250 --> 00:03:36.170
  • AND THEY MESS UP YOUR BLADES
  • 00:03:36.170 --> 00:03:37.160
  • ON YOUR MOWER,
  • 00:03:37.160 --> 00:03:38.070
  • NOT THAT I'M BITTER.
  • 00:03:38.070 --> 00:03:41.050
  • AND SO, HERE'S WHAT
  • 00:03:41.050 --> 00:03:42.000
  • RELIGION TEACH US -
  • 00:03:42.000 --> 00:03:43.100
  • MAKE THE TREE LOOK BETTER.
  • 00:03:43.100 --> 00:03:46.030
  • SO, STOP THAT, WEAR THIS,
  • 00:03:46.030 --> 00:03:47.290
  • DON'T WEAR THAT,
  • 00:03:47.290 --> 00:03:49.080
  • DON'T TATTOO, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:03:49.080 --> 00:03:51.140
  • STOP CUTTING YOUR HAIR,
  • 00:03:51.140 --> 00:03:52.250
  • GET THAT OUT OF YOUR NOSE,
  • 00:03:52.250 --> 00:03:54.120
  • DON'T LISTEN TO THAT MUSIC,
  • 00:03:54.120 --> 00:03:56.100
  • STOP IT, QUIT IT.
  • 00:03:56.100 --> 00:03:58.190
  • AND THEN YOU WONDER WHY
  • 00:03:58.190 --> 00:04:00.070
  • YOU'RE SO FRUSTRATED,
  • 00:04:00.070 --> 00:04:01.050
  • AND FOR SOME OF YOU,
  • 00:04:01.050 --> 00:04:01.270
  • YOU'VE EVEN GOT TO THIS PLACE --
  • 00:04:01.270 --> 00:04:03.020
  • THIS GOD THING
  • 00:04:03.020 --> 00:04:03.220
  • DOESN'T WORK FOR ME.
  • 00:04:03.220 --> 00:04:06.040
  • BECAUSE, YOU HAVE SOME WILLPOWER
  • 00:04:06.040 --> 00:04:08.160
  • THAT LASTS YOU ABOUT
  • 00:04:08.160 --> 00:04:09.150
  • A MONTH OR TWO MONTHS,
  • 00:04:09.150 --> 00:04:11.150
  • AND YOU'RE LIKE, I'VE TRIED IT.
  • 00:04:11.150 --> 00:04:12.160
  • I TRIED TO DO BETTER,
  • 00:04:12.160 --> 00:04:13.140
  • I TRIED TO BE STRONG, I TRIED,
  • 00:04:13.140 --> 00:04:14.190
  • I TRIED, I TRIED, I TRY.
  • 00:04:15.030 --> 00:04:18.030
  • AND IT'S KIND OF LIKE THIS,
  • 00:04:18.030 --> 00:04:19.130
  • THIS WOULD BE THE EQUIVALENT.
  • 00:04:19.130 --> 00:04:20.210
  • IF YOU WENT TO A DOCTOR,
  • 00:04:20.210 --> 00:04:21.280
  • AND THE DOCTOR CAME IN
  • 00:04:21.280 --> 00:04:22.290
  • AND SAID WHAT'S THE SYMPTOMS,
  • 00:04:22.290 --> 00:04:24.020
  • AND YOU'RE LIKE,
  • 00:04:24.020 --> 00:04:25.010
  • WELL, I GOT THIS COUGH,
  • 00:04:25.010 --> 00:04:26.010
  • AND LIKE, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:04:26.010 --> 00:04:28.030
  • PHLEGM'S COMING UP --
  • 00:04:28.030 --> 00:04:30.110
  • WELCOME TO CHURCH.
  • 00:04:30.110 --> 00:04:31.120
  • LIKE, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:04:31.120 --> 00:04:33.070
  • AND I GOT THIS RUNNY NOSE.
  • 00:04:33.070 --> 00:04:34.180
  • AND THE DOCTOR WOULD GO, OKAY,
  • 00:04:34.180 --> 00:04:36.100
  • I KNOW WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU.
  • 00:04:36.100 --> 00:04:37.230
  • STOP COUGHING!
  • 00:04:37.230 --> 00:04:39.100
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:04:40.180 --> 00:04:43.180
  • AND STOP HAVING
  • 00:04:43.180 --> 00:04:44.080
  • A RUNNY NOSE.
  • 00:04:44.080 --> 00:04:46.170
  • IF A PHYSICIAN DID THAT,
  • 00:04:46.170 --> 00:04:48.220
  • YOU WOULD WALK OUT
  • 00:04:48.220 --> 00:04:49.130
  • OF THE OFFICE GOING,
  • 00:04:49.130 --> 00:04:50.140
  • I'M NOT PAYING A DIME,
  • 00:04:50.140 --> 00:04:51.230
  • THIS PERSON'S LOST
  • 00:04:51.230 --> 00:04:52.070
  • THEIR MIND!
  • 00:04:52.070 --> 00:04:54.120
  • BUT YOU'LL GO TO A CHURCH
  • 00:04:57.040 --> 00:05:00.060
  • WHERE YOU'RE DEALING
  • 00:05:00.060 --> 00:05:00.290
  • WITH SPIRITUAL PAIN,
  • 00:05:01.160 --> 00:05:04.160
  • AND IT'S LIKE, HAVE PEACE!
  • 00:05:04.160 --> 00:05:06.270
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:05:07.080 --> 00:05:10.080
  • THAT HELPS!
  • 00:05:10.080 --> 00:05:12.160
  • BE MORE JOYFUL!
  • 00:05:12.220 --> 00:05:15.220
  • AND YOU WONDER WHY
  • 00:05:15.220 --> 00:05:17.070
  • YOU'RE FRUSTRATED IN YOUR FAITH,
  • 00:05:17.200 --> 00:05:20.200
  • AND YOU WONDER
  • 00:05:20.200 --> 00:05:21.060
  • WHY YOU'RE STUCK
  • 00:05:21.060 --> 00:05:22.110
  • IN DIFFERENT AREAS OF LIFE,
  • 00:05:22.110 --> 00:05:23.240
  • AND YOU FINALLY,
  • 00:05:23.240 --> 00:05:24.210
  • SOME OF YOU, MAYBE
  • 00:05:24.210 --> 00:05:25.070
  • YOU'RE TO THE POINT
  • 00:05:25.070 --> 00:05:25.230
  • WHERE YOU'RE JUST
  • 00:05:25.230 --> 00:05:26.100
  • TIRED OF BEING TIRED,
  • 00:05:26.220 --> 00:05:29.220
  • AND YOU'RE PROBABLY
  • 00:05:29.220 --> 00:05:30.060
  • AT A GREAT PLACE TODAY THEN
  • 00:05:30.060 --> 00:05:32.110
  • TO GET SOME HELP.
  • 00:05:32.110 --> 00:05:34.180
  • BUT WE WONDER WHY
  • 00:05:34.180 --> 00:05:35.030
  • WE GET FRUSTRATED BECAUSE
  • 00:05:35.030 --> 00:05:36.150
  • WE PAINT UP THE TREE.
  • 00:05:36.150 --> 00:05:38.090
  • WE TRY TO MAKE
  • 00:05:38.090 --> 00:05:38.250
  • THE TREE LOOK BETTER.
  • 00:05:38.250 --> 00:05:40.190
  • YOU KNOW, AND THAT'S
  • 00:05:40.190 --> 00:05:41.240
  • THE WORLD WE LIVE IN.
  • 00:05:41.240 --> 00:05:43.010
  • WE LIVE IN A --
  • 00:05:43.010 --> 00:05:44.060
  • DOES IT --
  • 00:05:44.060 --> 00:05:44.280
  • THE QUESTION WE ASK IS
  • 00:05:44.280 --> 00:05:45.250
  • "DOES IT LOOK GOOD?",
  • 00:05:45.250 --> 00:05:46.200
  • NOT, "IS IT GOOD?"
  • 00:05:46.200 --> 00:05:49.200
  • AND SO, WE JUST WANT TO KNOW,
  • 00:05:49.200 --> 00:05:50.180
  • DOES THE TREE LOOK GOOD?
  • 00:05:50.180 --> 00:05:52.050
  • AND WE LIKE, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:05:52.050 --> 00:05:53.050
  • WE'LL NIP IT, TUCK IT,
  • 00:05:53.050 --> 00:05:55.200
  • SUCK IT, [SUCKING],
  • 00:05:55.250 --> 00:05:58.250
  • WHITEN IT, DYE IT,
  • 00:06:01.130 --> 00:06:04.130
  • TO MAKE SURE IT LOOKS GOOD,
  • 00:06:04.130 --> 00:06:06.050
  • NOT CONCERNED IF IT IS GOOD.
  • 00:06:06.200 --> 00:06:09.200
  • CAN I TELL YOU SOMETHING?
  • 00:06:09.200 --> 00:06:11.060
  • STOP TRYING TO MAKE
  • 00:06:11.060 --> 00:06:12.160
  • YOUR TREE LOOK GOOD,
  • 00:06:12.160 --> 00:06:14.290
  • AND FEED THE ROOTS.
  • 00:06:14.290 --> 00:06:17.080
  • IF YOU'LL FEED THE ROOTS,
  • 00:06:17.080 --> 00:06:18.290
  • YOUR LIFE WILL
  • 00:06:18.290 --> 00:06:19.150
  • TAKE CARE OF ITSELF.
  • 00:06:19.150 --> 00:06:20.270
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:06:22.010 --> 00:06:25.010
  • AND SO, WHAT IS
  • 00:06:25.010 --> 00:06:25.220
  • IN THE ROOT SYSTEM
  • 00:06:25.220 --> 00:06:26.170
  • OF MY LIFE IS THE QUESTION
  • 00:06:26.170 --> 00:06:27.240
  • THAT WE HAVE TO ANSWER.
  • 00:06:27.240 --> 00:06:29.250
  • WHAT IS THE ROOT SYSTEM
  • 00:06:29.250 --> 00:06:30.220
  • OF MY LIFE?
  • 00:06:30.220 --> 00:06:32.070
  • WHAT IS THAT?
  • 00:06:32.070 --> 00:06:33.060
  • HOW HAS GOD MADE ME?
  • 00:06:33.060 --> 00:06:34.270
  • I'M CONVINCED THAT MOST OF US
  • 00:06:34.270 --> 00:06:35.240
  • DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND
  • 00:06:35.240 --> 00:06:36.190
  • HOW GOD HAS MADE US,
  • 00:06:36.190 --> 00:06:38.090
  • AND SO IF WE DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:06:38.090 --> 00:06:39.050
  • HOW GOD HAS MADE US,
  • 00:06:39.050 --> 00:06:40.010
  • WE WILL LIVE FOREVER FRUSTRATED
  • 00:06:40.010 --> 00:06:42.180
  • IN OUR LIFE.
  • 00:06:42.180 --> 00:06:44.200
  • AND SO, I JUST PRAY
  • 00:06:44.200 --> 00:06:45.150
  • GOD WILL JUST LIKE,
  • 00:06:45.150 --> 00:06:46.150
  • MAKE SOME THINGS COME ALIVE
  • 00:06:46.150 --> 00:06:47.100
  • FOR YOU TODAY.
  • 00:06:47.100 --> 00:06:48.140
  • AND SO, LET'S GO
  • 00:06:48.140 --> 00:06:49.010
  • TO THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:06:49.010 --> 00:06:49.260
  • WHERE GOD TELLS US
  • 00:06:49.260 --> 00:06:50.230
  • ABOUT US AND HOW GOD MADE US,
  • 00:06:50.230 --> 00:06:53.160
  • AND WE NEED TO GO TO
  • 00:06:53.160 --> 00:06:54.100
  • THE BEGINNING, SO GENESIS 1.
  • 00:06:54.100 --> 00:06:56.100
  • VERSE 26 SAYS THIS,
  • 00:06:56.100 --> 00:06:58.120
  • "THEN GOD SAID,
  • 00:06:58.120 --> 00:06:59.290
  • "LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR IMAGE,"
  • 00:06:59.290 --> 00:07:02.030
  • SO THAT'S MAN,
  • 00:07:02.030 --> 00:07:03.290
  • AS IN THE HUMAN RACE.
  • 00:07:03.290 --> 00:07:04.280
  • "IN OUR IMAGE,
  • 00:07:04.280 --> 00:07:05.220
  • IN OUR LIKENESS, "
  • 00:07:05.220 --> 00:07:08.020
  • AND THEN HE SAYS
  • 00:07:08.020 --> 00:07:08.170
  • THEY'RE GONNA RULE OVER
  • 00:07:08.170 --> 00:07:10.180
  • THE ANIMALS ON THE GROUND,
  • 00:07:10.180 --> 00:07:12.070
  • AND THE CREATURES, AND FISH,
  • 00:07:12.070 --> 00:07:13.220
  • AND THE BIRDS OF THE AIR,
  • 00:07:13.220 --> 00:07:14.150
  • AND ALL THAT.
  • 00:07:14.150 --> 00:07:15.100
  • AND SO, WE NEED TO TAKE
  • 00:07:15.100 --> 00:07:16.060
  • THAT FIRST PHRASE,
  • 00:07:16.060 --> 00:07:17.090
  • "LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR IMAGE."
  • 00:07:17.090 --> 00:07:19.020
  • SO, WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:07:19.020 --> 00:07:19.240
  • SOMETHING ABOUT THE IMAGE OF GOD
  • 00:07:19.240 --> 00:07:21.070
  • TO UNDERSTAND SOMETHING
  • 00:07:21.070 --> 00:07:21.220
  • ABOUT US,
  • 00:07:21.220 --> 00:07:22.270
  • AND IT'S THIS,
  • 00:07:22.270 --> 00:07:23.190
  • IS THAT GOD IS A TRIUNE IMAGE,
  • 00:07:23.250 --> 00:07:26.250
  • THAT HE IS --
  • 00:07:26.250 --> 00:07:27.210
  • THE WORD IS CALLED,
  • 00:07:27.210 --> 00:07:28.180
  • YOU MAY HAVE HEARD,
  • 00:07:28.180 --> 00:07:29.040
  • THE TRINITY,
  • 00:07:29.040 --> 00:07:30.080
  • THAT HE IS FATHER,
  • 00:07:30.080 --> 00:07:31.030
  • SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:07:31.030 --> 00:07:33.140
  • THEOLOGICAL TERMS WOULD SAY
  • 00:07:33.140 --> 00:07:34.150
  • HE IS A TRICHOTOMY.
  • 00:07:34.150 --> 00:07:36.050
  • AND SO IF THAT'S WHO GOD IS,
  • 00:07:36.050 --> 00:07:38.070
  • AND GOD HAS MADE US
  • 00:07:38.070 --> 00:07:39.080
  • IN HIS IMAGE,
  • 00:07:39.080 --> 00:07:40.210
  • THEN WE ARE ALSO
  • 00:07:40.210 --> 00:07:42.060
  • MADE UP OF THREE PARTS.
  • 00:07:42.060 --> 00:07:43.180
  • WE ARE ONE, YET THREE.
  • 00:07:43.180 --> 00:07:45.050
  • GOD IS ONE GOD,
  • 00:07:45.050 --> 00:07:46.090
  • YET THREE -
  • 00:07:46.090 --> 00:07:47.100
  • FATHER, SON, HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:07:47.100 --> 00:07:48.110
  • IF YOU'RE WITH ME, SAY AMEN.
  • 00:07:48.110 --> 00:07:50.020
  • AND SO, WHAT ARE
  • 00:07:50.020 --> 00:07:50.180
  • THOSE THREE PARTS?
  • 00:07:50.180 --> 00:07:51.270
  • 1 THESSALONIANS 5:23 TELLS US,
  • 00:07:51.270 --> 00:07:54.140
  • "MAY GOD HIMSELF,
  • 00:07:54.140 --> 00:07:55.200
  • THE GOD OF PEACE,
  • 00:07:55.200 --> 00:07:56.230
  • SANCTIFY YOU, "
  • 00:07:56.230 --> 00:07:58.060
  • OR PURIFY YOU,
  • 00:07:58.060 --> 00:07:59.100
  • "THROUGH AND THROUGH."
  • 00:07:59.100 --> 00:08:01.020
  • AND THIS, WHAT HE TELLS US
  • 00:08:01.020 --> 00:08:02.030
  • ABOUT US,
  • 00:08:02.030 --> 00:08:02.240
  • "THROUGH AND THROUGH."
  • 00:08:02.240 --> 00:08:03.140
  • WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE PURIFIED
  • 00:08:03.140 --> 00:08:04.210
  • THROUGH AND THROUGH?
  • 00:08:04.210 --> 00:08:05.260
  • "MAY YOUR WHOLE, "
  • 00:08:05.260 --> 00:08:06.220
  • HERE WE GO, "SPIRIT, SOUL,
  • 00:08:06.220 --> 00:08:09.030
  • AND BODY BE KEPT BLAMELESS
  • 00:08:09.050 --> 00:08:12.050
  • AT THE COMING OF
  • 00:08:12.050 --> 00:08:12.220
  • OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:08:12.220 --> 00:08:14.040
  • THE ONE WHO CALLS YOU
  • 00:08:14.040 --> 00:08:15.100
  • IS FAITHFUL,
  • 00:08:15.100 --> 00:08:15.290
  • AND HE WILL DO IT."
  • 00:08:15.290 --> 00:08:18.120
  • HE WILL DO IT.
  • 00:08:18.120 --> 00:08:20.030
  • AND SO, HERE'S WHAT
  • 00:08:20.030 --> 00:08:20.190
  • YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND,
  • 00:08:20.190 --> 00:08:21.160
  • IS THAT YOU ARE A SPIRIT.
  • 00:08:21.160 --> 00:08:24.150
  • YOU'RE NOT A BODY,
  • 00:08:24.150 --> 00:08:25.210
  • YOU'RE A SPIRIT.
  • 00:08:25.210 --> 00:08:27.110
  • YOUR BODY WILL PASS AWAY.
  • 00:08:27.110 --> 00:08:29.010
  • IT WILL DECAY.
  • 00:08:29.010 --> 00:08:30.100
  • IT WILL GO AWAY.
  • 00:08:30.100 --> 00:08:31.100
  • FROM THE DUST YOU CAME,
  • 00:08:31.100 --> 00:08:32.120
  • FROM THE DUST
  • 00:08:32.120 --> 00:08:32.240
  • YOU WILL RETURN.
  • 00:08:32.240 --> 00:08:33.240
  • SO, YOU ARE NOT A BODY.
  • 00:08:33.240 --> 00:08:34.270
  • YOUR BODY IS NOT EVERLASTING.
  • 00:08:34.270 --> 00:08:36.200
  • IF YOU'VE ACCEPTED CHRIST,
  • 00:08:36.200 --> 00:08:38.080
  • YOU WILL RECEIVE
  • 00:08:38.080 --> 00:08:38.210
  • A NEW BODY IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:08:38.210 --> 00:08:40.190
  • THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:08:40.190 --> 00:08:41.070
  • WE'LL HAVE A NEW BODY.
  • 00:08:41.070 --> 00:08:42.130
  • MINE, IT'S GONNA LOOK SIMILAR
  • 00:08:42.130 --> 00:08:44.230
  • TO THE ROCK,
  • 00:08:44.230 --> 00:08:47.150
  • 'CAUSE I'M NOT COMPLETELY
  • 00:08:47.150 --> 00:08:48.150
  • THERE YET, BUT IN HEAVEN,
  • 00:08:48.150 --> 00:08:49.200
  • I WILL BE.
  • 00:08:49.200 --> 00:08:50.170
  • THAT'LL BE MY GLORY.
  • 00:08:50.170 --> 00:08:51.190
  • THE BIBLE CALLS IT
  • 00:08:51.190 --> 00:08:52.050
  • A GLORIFIED BODY.
  • 00:08:52.050 --> 00:08:53.010
  • SO, YOU'RE NOT A BODY.
  • 00:08:53.010 --> 00:08:54.200
  • YOU ARE A SPIRIT.
  • 00:08:54.200 --> 00:08:56.140
  • ALL RIGHT?
  • 00:08:56.140 --> 00:08:56.260
  • SO, YOU ARE NOT A HUMAN
  • 00:08:57.020 --> 00:09:00.040
  • THAT HAS SOME
  • 00:09:00.040 --> 00:09:00.240
  • SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCES,
  • 00:09:00.240 --> 00:09:03.090
  • YOU ARE A SPIRIT
  • 00:09:03.090 --> 00:09:05.030
  • THAT IS HAVING
  • 00:09:05.030 --> 00:09:05.200
  • SOME HUMAN EXPERIENCES.
  • 00:09:06.220 --> 00:09:09.220
  • YOU'RE NOT A HUMAN THAT
  • 00:09:09.220 --> 00:09:11.050
  • JUST EVERY SO OFTEN
  • 00:09:11.050 --> 00:09:12.150
  • HAS THESE SPIRITUAL MOMENTS.
  • 00:09:12.150 --> 00:09:15.010
  • YOU'VE GOT TO GET THIS.
  • 00:09:15.010 --> 00:09:15.250
  • YOU'VE GOT TO FILTER LIFE
  • 00:09:15.250 --> 00:09:16.250
  • THROUGH THIS.
  • 00:09:16.250 --> 00:09:18.070
  • YOU ARE A SPIRITUAL BEING
  • 00:09:18.070 --> 00:09:20.230
  • THAT HAS SOME HUMAN EXPERIENCES.
  • 00:09:20.230 --> 00:09:22.220
  • THE SPIRIT PART OF YOU
  • 00:09:22.220 --> 00:09:23.290
  • IS THE PART
  • 00:09:23.290 --> 00:09:24.110
  • THAT LASTS FOREVER.
  • 00:09:24.110 --> 00:09:26.160
  • ALL RIGHT?
  • 00:09:26.160 --> 00:09:26.270
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:09:26.270 --> 00:09:28.050
  • SO, YOU ARE A SPIRIT.
  • 00:09:28.050 --> 00:09:29.000
  • YOU HAVE A SOUL,
  • 00:09:29.000 --> 00:09:31.060
  • SO YOUR SOUL IS YOUR MIND,
  • 00:09:31.060 --> 00:09:32.290
  • YOUR WILL, AND YOUR EMOTIONS.
  • 00:09:32.290 --> 00:09:35.110
  • YOU'RE BORN WITH THAT.
  • 00:09:35.110 --> 00:09:36.040
  • YOU'RE BORN WITH A MIND,
  • 00:09:36.040 --> 00:09:37.020
  • YOU'RE BORN WITH A WILL,
  • 00:09:37.020 --> 00:09:38.140
  • AND YOU'RE BORN WITH EMOTIONS,
  • 00:09:38.140 --> 00:09:40.190
  • AND ALL THAT IS HOUSED,
  • 00:09:41.170 --> 00:09:44.170
  • IN THIS SEASON OF YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:09:44.170 --> 00:09:46.170
  • IN A BODY.
  • 00:09:46.170 --> 00:09:48.110
  • SO I AM A SPIRIT,
  • 00:09:48.110 --> 00:09:50.190
  • I HAVE A SOUL,
  • 00:09:50.190 --> 00:09:52.210
  • AND IT IS HOUSED IN A BODY.
  • 00:09:52.210 --> 00:09:54.160
  • WE'RE GONNA REPRESENT THESE WITH
  • 00:09:54.160 --> 00:09:56.200
  • WHAT'S SUPPOSED TO
  • 00:09:56.200 --> 00:09:57.030
  • LOOK LIKE A CIRCLE,
  • 00:09:57.030 --> 00:09:59.260
  • AND WE'LL MAKE THE CIRCLE
  • 00:09:59.260 --> 00:10:00.240
  • THE SMALLEST ONE SO YOU
  • 00:10:00.240 --> 00:10:02.010
  • FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF.
  • 00:10:02.260 --> 00:10:05.260
  • WE WANT YOU TO LEAVE HERE
  • 00:10:05.260 --> 00:10:06.190
  • FEELING GOOD.
  • 00:10:07.150 --> 00:10:10.150
  • SO, YOU HAVE A SPIRIT,
  • 00:10:10.150 --> 00:10:13.040
  • OR YOU ARE A SPIRIT.
  • 00:10:13.040 --> 00:10:13.270
  • YOU HAVE A SOUL,
  • 00:10:13.270 --> 00:10:14.230
  • AND IT'S HOUSED IN A BODY.
  • 00:10:14.230 --> 00:10:16.100
  • NOW, THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT
  • 00:10:16.100 --> 00:10:17.180
  • TO UNDERSTAND,
  • 00:10:17.180 --> 00:10:19.270
  • AND THIS ISN'T TO BE
  • 00:10:19.270 --> 00:10:20.290
  • OFFENSIVE IN ANY WAY.
  • 00:10:20.290 --> 00:10:22.000
  • IT'S THEOLOGICALLY CORRECT.
  • 00:10:22.000 --> 00:10:23.290
  • WHEN YOU WERE BORN,
  • 00:10:23.290 --> 00:10:25.250
  • YOUR SPIRIT IS DEAD.
  • 00:10:26.110 --> 00:10:29.110
  • ALL RIGHT?
  • 00:10:29.110 --> 00:10:30.190
  • YOUR SPIRIT HAS NOT BEEN
  • 00:10:30.190 --> 00:10:31.180
  • MADE ALIVE YET.
  • 00:10:31.180 --> 00:10:33.160
  • YOUR SPIRIT IS DEAD.
  • 00:10:33.160 --> 00:10:34.090
  • WHY IS IT DEAD?
  • 00:10:34.090 --> 00:10:35.140
  • WELL, YOU CAN THANK
  • 00:10:35.140 --> 00:10:35.290
  • ADAM AND EVE,
  • 00:10:35.290 --> 00:10:37.210
  • BECAUSE WE WERE BORN INTO SIN,
  • 00:10:37.210 --> 00:10:39.060
  • THE BIBLE SAYS.
  • 00:10:39.060 --> 00:10:41.020
  • AND SO, LET'S GO THROUGH
  • 00:10:41.020 --> 00:10:42.140
  • SOME VERSES THAT'LL HELP
  • 00:10:42.140 --> 00:10:43.150
  • PAINT THIS PICTURE,
  • 00:10:43.150 --> 00:10:44.040
  • 'CAUSE SOME OF YOU ARE
  • 00:10:44.040 --> 00:10:44.240
  • LOOKING AT ME LIKE,
  • 00:10:44.240 --> 00:10:45.110
  • I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:10:45.110 --> 00:10:45.240
  • IF I BELIEVE THAT.
  • 00:10:45.240 --> 00:10:48.080
  • THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:10:48.080 --> 00:10:49.170
  • THAT WE ARE DEAD
  • 00:10:49.170 --> 00:10:51.180
  • IN OUR TRESPASSES AND SINS.
  • 00:10:52.070 --> 00:10:55.070
  • WELL, EITHER THE BIBLE
  • 00:10:55.070 --> 00:10:56.070
  • IS CONTRADICTING ITSELF
  • 00:10:56.070 --> 00:10:58.050
  • OR THERE IS ANOTHER PART OF ME
  • 00:10:58.050 --> 00:10:59.150
  • THAT'S DEAD, BECAUSE I,
  • 00:10:59.150 --> 00:11:01.090
  • BEFORE ACCEPTING CHRIST,
  • 00:11:01.090 --> 00:11:02.140
  • WAS VERY MUCH ALIVE.
  • 00:11:02.140 --> 00:11:03.270
  • I BREATHED,
  • 00:11:03.270 --> 00:11:04.200
  • I HAD A HEARTBEAT.
  • 00:11:04.200 --> 00:11:05.220
  • IF YOU WERE TO CHECK MY PULSE,
  • 00:11:05.220 --> 00:11:06.220
  • IF I WERE TO GET A PHYSICAL,
  • 00:11:06.220 --> 00:11:07.190
  • THEY WOULD TELL YOU,
  • 00:11:07.190 --> 00:11:08.080
  • HE'S ALIVE.
  • 00:11:08.080 --> 00:11:10.070
  • BUT, THE BIBLE TELLS ME
  • 00:11:10.070 --> 00:11:10.260
  • I WAS DEAD.
  • 00:11:10.260 --> 00:11:13.000
  • SO, THERE'S SOME PART OF ME
  • 00:11:13.000 --> 00:11:14.120
  • THAT WAS DEAD,
  • 00:11:14.120 --> 00:11:15.130
  • AND THAT PART OF ME
  • 00:11:15.130 --> 00:11:16.190
  • WAS MY SPIRIT.
  • 00:11:16.190 --> 00:11:18.210
  • THIS IS WHY WHENEVER
  • 00:11:18.210 --> 00:11:19.110
  • YOU ACCEPT CHRIST,
  • 00:11:19.110 --> 00:11:20.160
  • AND MANY OF YOU HAVE
  • 00:11:20.160 --> 00:11:21.050
  • MADE THAT DECISION.
  • 00:11:21.050 --> 00:11:21.230
  • IF YOU HAVEN'T,
  • 00:11:21.230 --> 00:11:22.120
  • IT'S OUR GREATEST PRAYER
  • 00:11:22.120 --> 00:11:23.040
  • IS THAT YOU WOULD
  • 00:11:23.040 --> 00:11:23.190
  • TAKE THAT STEP,
  • 00:11:23.190 --> 00:11:24.170
  • AND I JUST WANT TO SAY
  • 00:11:24.170 --> 00:11:25.120
  • WE BUILT THIS CHURCH
  • 00:11:25.120 --> 00:11:26.090
  • FOR PEOPLE THAT ARE SEARCHING -
  • 00:11:26.090 --> 00:11:27.120
  • WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO FOLLOW GOD?
  • 00:11:27.120 --> 00:11:29.080
  • AND SO, YOU KICK THE TIRES.
  • 00:11:29.080 --> 00:11:31.120
  • YOU LEARN, YOU COME, YOU HEAR,
  • 00:11:31.120 --> 00:11:33.050
  • YOU ASK YOUR QUESTIONS.
  • 00:11:33.050 --> 00:11:35.290
  • BUT FOR SOME OF YOU,
  • 00:11:35.290 --> 00:11:36.230
  • WHEN YOU ACCEPTED CHRIST
  • 00:11:36.230 --> 00:11:39.060
  • IT WAS LIKE,
  • 00:11:39.060 --> 00:11:40.030
  • LIKE YOU COULD SEE
  • 00:11:40.030 --> 00:11:42.060
  • FOR THE FIRST TIME.
  • 00:11:42.060 --> 00:11:43.170
  • IT WAS LIKE,
  • 00:11:43.170 --> 00:11:44.000
  • OH, MY GOODNESS!
  • 00:11:44.000 --> 00:11:45.030
  • YOU CAME HERE AND MAYBE YOU SAID
  • 00:11:45.030 --> 00:11:46.020
  • YES TO JESUS,
  • 00:11:46.020 --> 00:11:47.070
  • AND YOU'RE LIKE,
  • 00:11:47.070 --> 00:11:47.280
  • THAT PREACHER MAKES SENSE!
  • 00:11:47.280 --> 00:11:49.140
  • LIKE, I ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND
  • 00:11:49.140 --> 00:11:50.130
  • WHAT HE'S SAYING!
  • 00:11:50.130 --> 00:11:52.010
  • LIKE, THE BIBLE ACTUALLY
  • 00:11:52.010 --> 00:11:52.230
  • MAKES SENSE.
  • 00:11:52.230 --> 00:11:54.120
  • HERE'S WHY THAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:11:54.120 --> 00:11:55.180
  • LISTEN TO THIS.
  • 00:11:55.180 --> 00:11:56.180
  • ARE Y'ALL WITH ME SO FAR?
  • 00:11:56.180 --> 00:11:58.040
  • 1 CORINTHIANS,
  • 00:11:58.040 --> 00:11:58.290
  • LET'S GO TO THAT ONE, 2:14.
  • 00:11:58.290 --> 00:12:00.090
  • LET'S SKIP DOWN, GUYS.
  • 00:12:00.090 --> 00:12:01.020
  • 1 CORINTHIANS 2:14,
  • 00:12:01.020 --> 00:12:02.200
  • IT SAYS THIS.
  • 00:12:02.200 --> 00:12:03.040
  • "BUT THE NATURAL MAN
  • 00:12:03.040 --> 00:12:04.120
  • RECEIVETH NOT THE THINGS
  • 00:12:04.120 --> 00:12:06.010
  • OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD, "
  • 00:12:06.010 --> 00:12:07.290
  • "RECEIVETH NOT, "
  • 00:12:07.290 --> 00:12:08.280
  • I WENT KING JAMES ON YOU.
  • 00:12:08.280 --> 00:12:10.030
  • "RECEIVETH NOT."
  • 00:12:10.030 --> 00:12:13.030
  • LISTEN TO THIS,
  • 00:12:13.030 --> 00:12:13.180
  • "FOR THEY ARE FOOLISHNESS
  • 00:12:13.180 --> 00:12:15.040
  • UNTO HIM."
  • 00:12:15.040 --> 00:12:16.090
  • NOW, LISTEN TO THIS.
  • 00:12:16.090 --> 00:12:17.160
  • "NEITHER CAN HE KNOW THEM,
  • 00:12:17.220 --> 00:12:20.220
  • BECAUSE THEY ARE
  • 00:12:20.220 --> 00:12:21.070
  • SPIRITUALLY DISCERNED."
  • 00:12:21.070 --> 00:12:23.150
  • SO, YOU SHOULDN'T FEEL BAD
  • 00:12:23.150 --> 00:12:24.140
  • IF BEFORE CHRIST
  • 00:12:24.140 --> 00:12:25.050
  • YOU WERE LIKE,
  • 00:12:25.050 --> 00:12:25.180
  • THE BIBLE MAKES
  • 00:12:25.180 --> 00:12:26.040
  • NO SENSE TO ME,
  • 00:12:26.040 --> 00:12:27.100
  • I DON'T UNDERSTAND THIS,
  • 00:12:27.100 --> 00:12:28.140
  • I DON'T FEEL ANY
  • 00:12:28.140 --> 00:12:28.290
  • CONNECTION IN WORSHIP.
  • 00:12:28.290 --> 00:12:30.030
  • DON'T FEEL BAD ABOUT YOURSELF.
  • 00:12:30.030 --> 00:12:31.150
  • THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:12:31.150 --> 00:12:32.110
  • THAT UNTIL YOUR SPIRIT
  • 00:12:32.110 --> 00:12:33.200
  • IS MADE ALIVE,
  • 00:12:33.200 --> 00:12:34.240
  • IT ALL LOOKS FOOLISH TO YOU.
  • 00:12:34.240 --> 00:12:37.160
  • IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE,
  • 00:12:37.160 --> 00:12:39.030
  • 'CAUSE IT CAN'T MAKE SENSE,
  • 00:12:39.030 --> 00:12:40.200
  • BECAUSE THOSE THINGS
  • 00:12:40.200 --> 00:12:41.170
  • ARE SPIRITUALLY DISCERNED,
  • 00:12:41.170 --> 00:12:44.010
  • OR SPIRITUALLY UNDERSTOOD.
  • 00:12:44.010 --> 00:12:45.280
  • SO, YOUR SPIRIT
  • 00:12:45.280 --> 00:12:47.030
  • HAS TO COME ALIVE
  • 00:12:47.030 --> 00:12:49.180
  • BEFORE YOU CAN EVEN
  • 00:12:49.180 --> 00:12:50.070
  • SPIRITUALLY DISCERN
  • 00:12:50.070 --> 00:12:51.020
  • THOSE THINGS.
  • 00:12:51.020 --> 00:12:52.170
  • IT'S AN AMAZING THING
  • 00:12:52.170 --> 00:12:53.090
  • WHEN THAT HAPPENS.
  • 00:12:53.090 --> 00:12:54.290
  • THERE'S A PROBLEM
  • 00:12:54.290 --> 00:12:55.110
  • WITH IT, THOUGH.
  • 00:12:55.110 --> 00:12:57.290
  • IT'S NOT A PROBLEM
  • 00:12:57.290 --> 00:12:58.150
  • WITH BEING SAVED.
  • 00:12:58.150 --> 00:13:00.030
  • THAT'S A GOOD THING.
  • 00:13:00.030 --> 00:13:01.210
  • THE PROBLEM IS THIS,
  • 00:13:01.210 --> 00:13:03.160
  • IS THAT YOUR MIND,
  • 00:13:03.160 --> 00:13:04.110
  • WILL, AND EMOTIONS,
  • 00:13:04.110 --> 00:13:05.180
  • UP TO THE POINT THAT
  • 00:13:05.180 --> 00:13:06.150
  • YOUR SPIRIT COMES ALIVE,
  • 00:13:06.150 --> 00:13:08.180
  • HAVE BEEN PROGRAMMED
  • 00:13:08.180 --> 00:13:09.200
  • IN A CERTAIN WAY.
  • 00:13:09.210 --> 00:13:12.210
  • YOUR MIND HAS BEEN PROGRAMMED
  • 00:13:12.210 --> 00:13:13.270
  • TO BELIEVE A CERTAIN WAY,
  • 00:13:13.270 --> 00:13:15.130
  • AND THINK A CERTAIN WAY,
  • 00:13:15.130 --> 00:13:16.190
  • AND SEE THINGS A CERTAIN WAY,
  • 00:13:16.190 --> 00:13:18.060
  • AND HAVE A CERTAIN PERSPECTIVE,
  • 00:13:18.060 --> 00:13:19.240
  • AND HAVE A CERTAIN
  • 00:13:19.240 --> 00:13:20.100
  • OUTLOOK ON THINGS.
  • 00:13:20.100 --> 00:13:21.220
  • AND YOUR WILL HAS EITHER --
  • 00:13:21.220 --> 00:13:23.140
  • FOR SOME OF US,
  • 00:13:23.140 --> 00:13:24.140
  • WE'VE CONTROLLED IT
  • 00:13:24.140 --> 00:13:25.090
  • A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:13:25.090 --> 00:13:25.220
  • SOME OF US,
  • 00:13:25.220 --> 00:13:26.060
  • WE JUST KIND OF LET OUR WILL,
  • 00:13:26.060 --> 00:13:27.090
  • WE JUST DO WHATEVER WE WANT.
  • 00:13:27.090 --> 00:13:28.060
  • I'M GONNA DO WHAT I WANT.
  • 00:13:28.060 --> 00:13:28.290
  • I'M GONNA DO MY OWN THING.
  • 00:13:28.290 --> 00:13:30.230
  • I'M MY OWN MAN,
  • 00:13:30.230 --> 00:13:32.060
  • I CAN DO WHAT I WANT.
  • 00:13:32.060 --> 00:13:33.170
  • NOW, THE SPIRIT HAS COME ALIVE
  • 00:13:33.200 --> 00:13:36.200
  • AND NOW THERE'S THIS PART
  • 00:13:36.200 --> 00:13:37.200
  • OF YOU THAT'S GOING,
  • 00:13:37.200 --> 00:13:39.190
  • HEY, YOU SHOULD
  • 00:13:39.190 --> 00:13:41.050
  • REALLY FORGIVE THEM.
  • 00:13:41.050 --> 00:13:43.120
  • BUT YOUR MIND, WILL,
  • 00:13:43.120 --> 00:13:43.290
  • AND EMOTION IS GOING,
  • 00:13:43.290 --> 00:13:45.090
  • I AIN'T FORGIVING THEM.
  • 00:13:45.090 --> 00:13:47.190
  • AFTER WHAT THEY DID TO ME?
  • 00:13:47.190 --> 00:13:50.090
  • YOU DON'T KNOW
  • 00:13:50.090 --> 00:13:50.220
  • WHAT THEY DID TO ME.
  • 00:13:50.220 --> 00:13:53.060
  • AND YOUR SPIRIT'S GOING, NAH,
  • 00:13:53.060 --> 00:13:54.060
  • YOU OUGHT TO FORGIVE THEM,
  • 00:13:54.060 --> 00:13:56.070
  • AND THE SPIRIT'S REAL GENTLE.
  • 00:13:56.070 --> 00:13:58.230
  • YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
  • 00:13:58.230 --> 00:14:00.150
  • AND YOUR MIND, WILL,
  • 00:14:00.150 --> 00:14:01.010
  • AND EMOTIONS IS LIKE,
  • 00:14:01.010 --> 00:14:02.260
  • YOUR MIND'S THINKING THROUGH
  • 00:14:02.260 --> 00:14:03.130
  • ALL OF THE REASONS YOU SHOULDN'T
  • 00:14:03.130 --> 00:14:04.130
  • FORGIVE THEM.
  • 00:14:04.130 --> 00:14:06.120
  • AND SO THEN IT CREATES
  • 00:14:06.120 --> 00:14:07.020
  • THIS TUG OF WAR.
  • 00:14:07.020 --> 00:14:08.040
  • MAYBE YOU'VE EXPERIENCED THIS.
  • 00:14:08.040 --> 00:14:09.000
  • MAYBE YOU'VE FELT LIKE
  • 00:14:09.000 --> 00:14:09.290
  • INSIDE OF YOU
  • 00:14:09.290 --> 00:14:10.270
  • YOU'RE SCHIZOPHRENIC
  • 00:14:10.270 --> 00:14:11.190
  • SOMETIMES SPIRITUALLY.
  • 00:14:11.230 --> 00:14:14.230
  • LIKE, THERE'S A PART OF YOU
  • 00:14:14.230 --> 00:14:15.190
  • THAT WANTS TO FORGIVE,
  • 00:14:15.190 --> 00:14:16.260
  • AND LOVE, AND BE GENEROUS,
  • 00:14:16.260 --> 00:14:18.130
  • AND THERE'S A PART OF YOU
  • 00:14:18.130 --> 00:14:19.070
  • THAT WANTS TO PUNCH THEM
  • 00:14:19.070 --> 00:14:20.080
  • IN THE THROAT, AND --
  • 00:14:21.030 --> 00:14:24.030
  • ANYBODY EVER BEEN THERE?
  • 00:14:24.030 --> 00:14:25.260
  • AND IT'S BECAUSE
  • 00:14:25.260 --> 00:14:26.160
  • AS YOU ACCEPT CHRIST,
  • 00:14:26.160 --> 00:14:27.180
  • YOUR SPIRIT COMES ALIVE,
  • 00:14:27.180 --> 00:14:29.220
  • AND AS YOUR SPIRIT COMES ALIVE,
  • 00:14:29.220 --> 00:14:31.150
  • YOUR SPIRIT HAS TO GET
  • 00:14:31.150 --> 00:14:33.160
  • THROUGH YOUR SOUL TO
  • 00:14:33.160 --> 00:14:35.020
  • PRODUCE SOMETHING IN YOUR BODY.
  • 00:14:35.020 --> 00:14:36.190
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:14:36.190 --> 00:14:37.240
  • LET ME GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE.
  • 00:14:37.240 --> 00:14:39.170
  • SO, LET'S TAKE FORGIVENESS
  • 00:14:39.170 --> 00:14:40.170
  • AS A TOPIC.
  • 00:14:40.170 --> 00:14:42.000
  • THE SPIRIT OF GOD
  • 00:14:42.000 --> 00:14:43.180
  • IS GONNA SAY, "LOVE THOSE
  • 00:14:43.180 --> 00:14:44.210
  • WHO DO WRONG TO YOU,
  • 00:14:44.210 --> 00:14:46.210
  • CARE FOR THOSE
  • 00:14:46.210 --> 00:14:47.030
  • WHO DO EVIL TO YOU,
  • 00:14:47.030 --> 00:14:48.110
  • FORGIVE AS CHRIST JESUS
  • 00:14:48.110 --> 00:14:50.200
  • HAS FORGIVEN YOU."
  • 00:14:50.200 --> 00:14:53.080
  • SO, THE SPIRIT OF GOD
  • 00:14:53.080 --> 00:14:54.140
  • IS DOING THAT,
  • 00:14:54.140 --> 00:14:55.040
  • BUT FOR THAT TO ACTUALLY
  • 00:14:55.040 --> 00:14:56.050
  • COME OUT OF YOUR MOUTH
  • 00:14:56.050 --> 00:14:57.220
  • AND BE TRUE IN YOUR HEART,
  • 00:14:57.220 --> 00:14:59.060
  • IT HAS TO PASS THROUGH
  • 00:14:59.060 --> 00:15:00.100
  • THE FILTER OF YOUR SOUL.
  • 00:15:00.100 --> 00:15:02.280
  • ARE YOU FOLLOWING ME?
  • 00:15:02.280 --> 00:15:04.210
  • LET ME GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE -
  • 00:15:04.210 --> 00:15:05.250
  • GENEROSITY.
  • 00:15:05.250 --> 00:15:06.180
  • WE PREACHED A COUPLE
  • 00:15:06.180 --> 00:15:07.080
  • OF WEEKS AGO ABOUT
  • 00:15:07.080 --> 00:15:08.090
  • BREAKING THE SPIRIT OF MAMMON
  • 00:15:08.090 --> 00:15:09.190
  • IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:15:09.190 --> 00:15:10.280
  • AND HOW THAT HAPPENS
  • 00:15:10.280 --> 00:15:12.030
  • THROUGH TITHING.
  • 00:15:12.030 --> 00:15:13.290
  • FOR SOME OF YOU,
  • 00:15:13.290 --> 00:15:14.290
  • THE SPIRIT OF GOD,
  • 00:15:14.290 --> 00:15:15.270
  • SOMETHING IN YOU
  • 00:15:15.270 --> 00:15:16.130
  • IN THE SPIRIT GOES,
  • 00:15:16.130 --> 00:15:17.270
  • THAT'S RIGHT,
  • 00:15:17.270 --> 00:15:18.240
  • GOD'S WORD IS RIGHT.
  • 00:15:18.240 --> 00:15:20.040
  • THERE'S A PART OF YOU THAT,
  • 00:15:20.040 --> 00:15:21.060
  • THE BIBLE CALLS IT
  • 00:15:21.060 --> 00:15:22.070
  • "BEARS WITNESS, "
  • 00:15:22.070 --> 00:15:23.060
  • OR A CONNECTION THERE.
  • 00:15:23.060 --> 00:15:25.140
  • SO THAT SPIRIT SAYS IT,
  • 00:15:25.140 --> 00:15:26.210
  • BUT THEN YOUR MIND GOES,
  • 00:15:26.210 --> 00:15:28.130
  • I CAN'T AFFORD TO TITHE.
  • 00:15:28.130 --> 00:15:30.160
  • I NEED THAT MONEY
  • 00:15:30.160 --> 00:15:31.010
  • FOR SOMETHING ELSE.
  • 00:15:31.010 --> 00:15:32.210
  • YOUR WILL GOES,
  • 00:15:32.210 --> 00:15:33.070
  • I DON'T REALLY
  • 00:15:33.070 --> 00:15:33.180
  • WANT TO GIVE AWAY MONEY.
  • 00:15:33.180 --> 00:15:35.010
  • I'VE GOT A VACATION COMING UP.
  • 00:15:35.010 --> 00:15:36.180
  • AND YOUR EMOTIONS ARE LIKE,
  • 00:15:36.180 --> 00:15:37.190
  • I DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THAT,
  • 00:15:37.190 --> 00:15:38.120
  • I DON'T FEEL LIKE IT.
  • 00:15:38.120 --> 00:15:39.050
  • SO WHAT HAPPENS,
  • 00:15:39.050 --> 00:15:40.000
  • IT NEVER COMES OUT OF YOUR BODY.
  • 00:15:40.000 --> 00:15:41.280
  • IT NEVER GETS PRODUCED
  • 00:15:41.280 --> 00:15:42.170
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:15:42.170 --> 00:15:44.050
  • AND IF WE HAD ANOTHER
  • 00:15:44.050 --> 00:15:45.150
  • CATEGORY OVER HERE,
  • 00:15:45.150 --> 00:15:46.280
  • IT WOULD BE BLESSING.
  • 00:15:46.280 --> 00:15:49.060
  • SO, YOU DON'T MISS
  • 00:15:49.060 --> 00:15:49.230
  • THE BLESSING OF GOD
  • 00:15:49.230 --> 00:15:51.120
  • BECAUSE GOD ISN'T GOOD,
  • 00:15:51.120 --> 00:15:52.270
  • YOU MISSED THE BLESSING OF GOD
  • 00:15:52.270 --> 00:15:54.040
  • BECAUSE YOUR SOUL
  • 00:15:54.040 --> 00:15:55.030
  • IS RULING YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:15:55.030 --> 00:15:57.040
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:15:57.040 --> 00:15:59.080
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:15:59.080 --> 00:16:01.270
  • THE SPIRIT HAS TO BE
  • 00:16:01.270 --> 00:16:04.160
  • WHAT OVERCOMES THE MIND,
  • 00:16:04.160 --> 00:16:06.070
  • WILL, AND EMOTION.
  • 00:16:06.070 --> 00:16:06.270
  • SO, HOW DO I DO THAT?
  • 00:16:07.020 --> 00:16:10.020
  • WELL, YOU FEED WHAT YOU WANT.
  • 00:16:10.270 --> 00:16:13.270

  • 00:16:13.270 --> 00:16:15.260
  • IS WHAT WILL WIN, EVERY TIME.
  • 00:16:16.120 --> 00:16:19.120
  • WHATEVER YOU FEED
  • 00:16:19.120 --> 00:16:20.030
  • IS WHAT WILL WIN.
  • 00:16:20.030 --> 00:16:21.180
  • AND SO I'VE GOT FEED THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:16:21.180 --> 00:16:22.190
  • HOW DO I FEED THE SPIRIT?
  • 00:16:22.190 --> 00:16:25.000
  • WELL, IT'S EVERYTHING YOU KNOW.
  • 00:16:25.000 --> 00:16:26.230
  • YOU ALREADY KNOW
  • 00:16:26.230 --> 00:16:27.050
  • HOW TO FEED THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:16:27.050 --> 00:16:29.180
  • YOU FEED THE SPIRIT
  • 00:16:29.180 --> 00:16:30.080
  • BY BEING IN THE HOUSE OF GOD
  • 00:16:30.080 --> 00:16:31.180
  • ON A CONSISTENT BASIS.
  • 00:16:31.180 --> 00:16:34.010
  • THIS ISN'T A COME TO CHURCH
  • 00:16:34.010 --> 00:16:36.220
  • MORE MESSAGE.
  • 00:16:36.220 --> 00:16:38.090
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:16:38.090 --> 00:16:40.140
  • I DON'T GET, LIKE

  • BECAUSE YOU ATTENDED CHURCH.
  • 00:16:43.260 --> 00:16:45.290
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:16:45.290 --> 00:16:48.010
  • BUT, BEING IN
  • 00:16:48.010 --> 00:16:48.120
  • THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:16:48.120 --> 00:16:49.140
  • WITH THE PEOPLE OF GOD

  • AND HERE'S WHAT'S HAPPENING
  • 00:16:57.290 --> 00:16:58.240
  • FOR SOME OF YOU.
  • 00:17:01.130 --> 00:17:04.130
  • YOU'RE DEALING WITH
  • 00:17:04.130 --> 00:17:05.080

  • THE SOLUTION IS UP HERE,
  • 00:17:09.240 --> 00:17:12.240
  • AND SO YOU'RE PAINTING THE TREE.
  • 00:17:12.240 --> 00:17:14.260
  • YOUR TREE IS GETTING NICER,
  • 00:17:14.260 --> 00:17:16.180
  • LEAVES BIG, GREEN.
  • 00:17:16.180 --> 00:17:17.210
  • IT'S THE FALL, TURN COLOR,
  • 00:17:17.210 --> 00:17:19.110
  • BE PRETTY, LEAVES.
  • 00:17:19.110 --> 00:17:22.030
  • AND YOU'RE FRUSTRATED
  • 00:17:22.030 --> 00:17:22.220
  • WHY IT'S NOT HAPPENING.

  • QUIT IT, DON'T,
  • 00:17:26.030 --> 00:17:28.280
  • AND NOTHING CHANGES.
  • 00:17:29.140 --> 00:17:32.140
  • IT'S 'CAUSE
  • 00:17:32.140 --> 00:17:32.250
  • YOU'RE NEGLECTING
  • 00:17:32.250 --> 00:17:35.030
  • FEEDING YOUR SPIRIT.
  • 00:17:35.030 --> 00:17:37.140
  • YOU'RE NEGLECTING,
  • 00:17:37.140 --> 00:17:38.170
  • YOU'RE STARVING THE ROOTS,
  • 00:17:38.170 --> 00:17:41.010
  • EXPECTING THE TREE
  • 00:17:41.010 --> 00:17:42.050
  • TO PRODUCE FRUIT.
  • 00:17:42.050 --> 00:17:44.090
  • LISTEN TO ME.
  • 00:17:44.090 --> 00:17:45.020
  • YOU CANNOT STARVE
  • 00:17:45.020 --> 00:17:46.100
  • THE ROOT SYSTEM
  • 00:17:46.100 --> 00:17:47.140
  • OF YOUR SPIRIT
  • 00:17:47.140 --> 00:17:49.030
  • AND EXPECT JOY
  • 00:17:49.030 --> 00:17:50.130
  • TO COME OUT OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:17:50.130 --> 00:17:52.080
  • YOU CAN'T STARVE YOUR SPIRIT
  • 00:17:52.080 --> 00:17:53.280
  • AND EXPECT PEACE
  • 00:17:53.280 --> 00:17:54.240
  • TO COME OUT OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:17:55.090 --> 00:17:58.090
  • YOU CAN'T STARVE YOUR SPIRIT
  • 00:17:58.090 --> 00:18:00.160
  • AND EXPECT TO LIVE IN FREEDOM
  • 00:18:00.160 --> 00:18:03.120
  • IN DIFFERENT AREAS
  • 00:18:03.120 --> 00:18:03.290
  • OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:18:03.290 --> 00:18:04.240
  • YOU ARE NOT STUCK
  • 00:18:04.240 --> 00:18:06.170
  • ON THE MERRY-GO-ROUND YOU'RE ON
  • 00:18:06.170 --> 00:18:08.130
  • BECAUSE GOD IS NOT FOR YOU.
  • 00:18:08.130 --> 00:18:10.080
  • YOU ARE NOT STUCK
  • 00:18:10.080 --> 00:18:11.130
  • ON THE MERRY-GO-ROUND BECAUSE
  • 00:18:11.130 --> 00:18:12.200
  • GOD DOES IT FOR OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:18:12.200 --> 00:18:14.010
  • BUT HE DOES NOT DO IT FOR YOU.
  • 00:18:14.010 --> 00:18:15.140
  • YOU ARE NOT STUCK
  • 00:18:15.140 --> 00:18:16.210
  • IN THE INSECURITIES
  • 00:18:16.210 --> 00:18:17.140
  • IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:18:17.140 --> 00:18:18.180
  • AND THE UNFORGIVENESS
  • 00:18:18.180 --> 00:18:19.250
  • AND THE BITTERNESS
  • 00:18:19.250 --> 00:18:20.150
  • IN YOUR HEART.
  • 00:18:20.150 --> 00:18:21.090
  • YOU ARE NOT STUCK THERE
  • 00:18:21.090 --> 00:18:23.110
  • BECAUSE OF ANYBODY ELSE.
  • 00:18:24.250 --> 00:18:27.250
  • YOU'RE STUCK THERE
  • 00:18:27.250 --> 00:18:29.250
  • BECAUSE YOU'VE PROBABLY
  • 00:18:29.250 --> 00:18:30.100
  • BEEN STARVING YOUR SPIRIT,
  • 00:18:30.190 --> 00:18:33.190
  • AND THE ROOT SYSTEM
  • 00:18:33.190 --> 00:18:35.140
  • CANNOT PRODUCE
  • 00:18:35.140 --> 00:18:37.090
  • WHEN THE ROOT SYSTEM
  • 00:18:37.090 --> 00:18:38.130
  • IS NOT NURTURED.
  • 00:18:39.250 --> 00:18:42.250
  • SO, YOU'RE A SPIRIT.
  • 00:18:42.250 --> 00:18:45.160
  • YOU HAVE A SOUL,
  • 00:18:45.160 --> 00:18:47.110
  • YOUR MIND, WILL,
  • 00:18:47.110 --> 00:18:47.270
  • AND EMOTIONS.
  • 00:18:47.270 --> 00:18:50.030
  • AND WHEN YOUR SPIRIT
  • 00:18:50.030 --> 00:18:50.190
  • COMES ALIVE,
  • 00:18:50.190 --> 00:18:52.290
  • YOU ARE IN THIS JOURNEY
  • 00:18:52.290 --> 00:18:54.270
  • OF MORE AND MORE,
  • 00:18:54.270 --> 00:18:55.260
  • AND NONE OF HAS ARRIVED -
  • 00:18:55.260 --> 00:18:57.150
  • OF MORE AND MORE
  • 00:18:57.150 --> 00:18:58.020
  • SUBMITTING YOUR MIND, WILL,
  • 00:18:58.020 --> 00:18:59.010
  • AND EMOTIONS
  • 00:18:59.010 --> 00:19:00.280
  • TO THE SPIRIT OF GOD,
  • 00:19:00.280 --> 00:19:02.240
  • SO THAT YOUR BODY ACTUALLY
  • 00:19:02.240 --> 00:19:04.040
  • LIVES OUT THE PURPOSE OF GOD.
  • 00:19:04.040 --> 00:19:06.150
  • LET ME GIVE YOU
  • 00:19:06.150 --> 00:19:07.020
  • FOUR QUICK THINGS

  • THAT I THINK WILL
  • 00:19:08.160 --> 00:19:09.100
  • GIVE SOME HANDLEBARS
  • 00:19:09.100 --> 00:19:10.100
  • TO THIS MESSAGE,
  • 00:19:10.100 --> 00:19:11.090
  • AND THEN WE'LL CONTINUE
  • 00:19:11.090 --> 00:19:12.050
  • NEXT WEEK.
  • 00:19:12.050 --> 00:19:14.190
  • FOUR THINGS TO HELP US DEAL
  • 00:19:14.190 --> 00:19:16.200
  • WITH THE ROOT SYSTEM,
  • 00:19:16.200 --> 00:19:18.100
  • AND I LIKE TO CALL IT THIS,
  • 00:19:18.100 --> 00:19:20.110
  • THAT ALL OF US
  • 00:19:20.110 --> 00:19:20.280
  • HAVE THIS SHADOW SELF,
  • 00:19:21.190 --> 00:19:24.190
  • THIS PART OF US
  • 00:19:24.190 --> 00:19:26.020
  • THAT CAN SABOTAGE US,
  • 00:19:26.140 --> 00:19:29.140
  • THIS PART OF US
  • 00:19:29.140 --> 00:19:30.130
  • THAT WE'RE JUST LIKE,
  • 00:19:30.130 --> 00:19:33.080
  • WHY DID I DO THAT AGAIN?
  • 00:19:33.080 --> 00:19:34.260
  • AND IT'S LIKE THE SHADOW,
  • 00:19:34.260 --> 00:19:36.090
  • YOU CAN NEVER GET AWAY
  • 00:19:36.090 --> 00:19:36.280
  • FROM IT.
  • 00:19:36.280 --> 00:19:37.100
  • YOU'RE LIKE,
  • 00:19:37.100 --> 00:19:37.190
  • I WANT TO GET AWAY
  • 00:19:37.190 --> 00:19:38.070
  • FROM IT, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:19:38.070 --> 00:19:39.090
  • LIKE YOU WANT TO RUN,
  • 00:19:39.090 --> 00:19:39.290
  • YOU WANT TO DODGE,
  • 00:19:39.290 --> 00:19:41.040
  • AND THE SHADOW SIDE
  • 00:19:41.040 --> 00:19:41.240
  • CAN SABOTAGE YOU.
  • 00:19:41.240 --> 00:19:43.120
  • IT CAN KEEP YOU FROM
  • 00:19:43.120 --> 00:19:44.160
  • THE PURPOSE OF GOD
  • 00:19:44.160 --> 00:19:45.190
  • IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:19:45.190 --> 00:19:46.100
  • 'CAUSE MOST PEOPLE
  • 00:19:46.100 --> 00:19:47.160
  • WILL NEVER FACE THEIR SHADOW
  • 00:19:47.160 --> 00:19:50.140
  • AND DEAL WITH IT
  • 00:19:50.140 --> 00:19:51.020
  • AT THE ROOT LEVEL.
  • 00:19:51.020 --> 00:19:52.290
  • AND SO SINCE THEY DON'T,
  • 00:19:52.290 --> 00:19:53.200
  • THEY JUST KEEP LIVING
  • 00:19:53.200 --> 00:19:54.100
  • THROUGH LIFE BUMPING
  • 00:19:54.100 --> 00:19:56.160
  • INTO THE SAME THINGS.
  • 00:19:56.160 --> 00:19:57.220
  • THE SEASONS CHANGE,
  • 00:19:57.220 --> 00:19:58.240
  • THE NAMES CHANGE,
  • 00:19:58.240 --> 00:19:59.210
  • THE SITUATIONS CHANGE,
  • 00:19:59.210 --> 00:20:01.030
  • THE CORE ISSUES
  • 00:20:01.030 --> 00:20:01.190
  • ARE THE SAME.
  • 00:20:03.250 --> 00:20:06.250
  • NEW CITY, SAME STORY.
  • 00:20:06.250 --> 00:20:09.090
  • NEW MARRIAGE, SAME STORY.
  • 00:20:09.090 --> 00:20:11.290
  • NEW JOB, SAME STORY.
  • 00:20:11.290 --> 00:20:14.210
  • NEW FRIENDSHIP, SAME STORY,
  • 00:20:14.210 --> 00:20:17.020
  • 'CAUSE THEY'RE NEVER WILLING
  • 00:20:17.020 --> 00:20:17.220
  • TO FACE THE SHADOW.
  • 00:20:17.220 --> 00:20:18.220
  • SO, FOUR THINGS REAL FAST,
  • 00:20:18.220 --> 00:20:20.140
  • AND I'LL DO IT
  • 00:20:20.140 --> 00:20:21.010
  • IN A MINUTE-ISH.
  • 00:20:22.000 --> 00:20:25.000
  • NUMBER ONE IS DEFINE.
  • 00:20:25.000 --> 00:20:27.240
  • DEFINE.
  • 00:20:27.240 --> 00:20:28.290
  • YOU'VE GOT TO DEFINE THE THING
  • 00:20:28.290 --> 00:20:31.100
  • THAT IS KEEPING YOU STUCK.
  • 00:20:31.100 --> 00:20:33.170
  • YOU'VE GOT TO DEFINE IT.
  • 00:20:33.170 --> 00:20:34.070
  • WHAT DO I MEAN BY THAT?
  • 00:20:34.070 --> 00:20:35.020
  • YOU'VE GOT TO NAME IT.
  • 00:20:35.020 --> 00:20:37.150
  • NAME IT.
  • 00:20:37.150 --> 00:20:38.150
  • MOST OF US,
  • 00:20:38.150 --> 00:20:39.030
  • THIS IS WHERE WE WANT TO
  • 00:20:39.030 --> 00:20:39.250
  • DEAL WITH OUR ISSUES,
  • 00:20:39.250 --> 00:20:40.270
  • THE LEVEL WE WANT TO GO TO.
  • 00:20:40.270 --> 00:20:42.120
  • WELL, I MAKE MISTAKES SOMETIMES.
  • 00:20:47.040 --> 00:20:50.040
  • NO, YOU'VE GOT TO BE
  • 00:20:50.040 --> 00:20:51.050
  • WILLING TO GO,
  • 00:20:51.050 --> 00:20:53.190
  • I SAY THINGS THAT HURT
  • 00:20:53.190 --> 00:20:56.170
  • THE PEOPLE I LOVE THE MOST.
  • 00:20:56.170 --> 00:20:59.170
  • NOW, LISTEN TO ME.
  • 00:20:59.170 --> 00:21:00.110
  • THIS IS THE HARD WORK
  • 00:21:00.110 --> 00:21:01.050
  • THAT MOST PEOPLE NEVER
  • 00:21:01.050 --> 00:21:01.220
  • WANT TO DO, IS NAME IT.
  • 00:21:01.220 --> 00:21:04.140
  • YOU'VE GOT TO DEFINE IT.
  • 00:21:04.140 --> 00:21:05.160
  • WHAT IS IT?
  • 00:21:05.160 --> 00:21:07.280
  • NUMBER TWO IS
  • 00:21:07.280 --> 00:21:08.200
  • YOU'VE GOT TO EXPLORE.
  • 00:21:08.200 --> 00:21:11.180
  • EXPLORE, WHAT DO I MEAN BY THAT?
  • 00:21:11.180 --> 00:21:13.040
  • YOU HAVE GOT TO TRACE BACK
  • 00:21:13.040 --> 00:21:14.160
  • IN YOUR PAST AND FIND OUT,
  • 00:21:14.160 --> 00:21:16.260
  • WHERE DID I START DOING THAT
  • 00:21:16.260 --> 00:21:19.040
  • AND WHY DID I START DOING THAT?
  • 00:21:19.120 --> 00:21:22.120
  • FOR SOME OF YOU,
  • 00:21:22.120 --> 00:21:23.030
  • THERE ARE SOME HABITS
  • 00:21:23.030 --> 00:21:23.230
  • THAT YOU HAVE NOW CARRIED
  • 00:21:23.230 --> 00:21:24.200
  • INTO JOB, INTO SCHOOL,
  • 00:21:24.200 --> 00:21:26.190
  • INTO MARRIAGE,
  • 00:21:26.190 --> 00:21:27.220
  • INTO FRIENDSHIPS,
  • 00:21:27.220 --> 00:21:29.240
  • THAT YOU STARTED
  • 00:21:29.240 --> 00:21:30.190
  • AT SOME POINT IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:21:30.190 --> 00:21:32.010
  • AS A MECHANISM TO PROTECT YOU.
  • 00:21:32.140 --> 00:21:35.140
  • YOU'VE GOT TO EXPLORE -
  • 00:21:35.140 --> 00:21:36.090
  • WHERE DID THAT START,
  • 00:21:36.090 --> 00:21:37.250
  • AND WHY DID I START IT?
  • 00:21:37.250 --> 00:21:40.160
  • NUMBER THREE,
  • 00:21:40.160 --> 00:21:40.290
  • YOU'VE GOT TO IDENTIFY.
  • 00:21:41.000 --> 00:21:44.000
  • IDENTIFY WHAT?
  • 00:21:44.000 --> 00:21:44.280
  • IDENTIFY THE LIES
  • 00:21:44.280 --> 00:21:45.260
  • THAT ARE KEEPING YOU STUCK.
  • 00:21:45.260 --> 00:21:48.110
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOURS ARE,
  • 00:21:48.110 --> 00:21:49.190
  • BUT I CAN GUARANTEE
  • 00:21:49.190 --> 00:21:50.050
  • I KNOW TWO OF THEM.
  • 00:21:50.050 --> 00:21:51.290
  • NUMBER ONE IS THIS,
  • 00:21:51.290 --> 00:21:52.250
  • THE ENEMY WILL TELL YOU,
  • 00:21:52.250 --> 00:21:54.020
  • YOU ARE THE ONLY PERSON
  • 00:21:54.020 --> 00:21:55.070
  • DEALING WITH THIS.
  • 00:21:55.070 --> 00:21:58.050
  • 'CAUSE IF HE CAN MAKE YOU FEEL
  • 00:21:58.050 --> 00:21:59.010
  • LIKE YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE,
  • 00:21:59.010 --> 00:22:01.270
  • THEN HE CAN SHAME YOU
  • 00:22:01.270 --> 00:22:02.250
  • INTO NOT SPEAKING IT
  • 00:22:02.250 --> 00:22:04.210
  • AND NOT DEALING WITH IT.
  • 00:22:04.210 --> 00:22:06.070
  • AND, HERE'S THE DEAL.
  • 00:22:06.070 --> 00:22:07.020
  • CAN I TELL YOU SOMETHING?
  • 00:22:07.020 --> 00:22:08.090
  • I'VE BEEN DOING THIS
  • 00:22:08.090 --> 00:22:09.200
  • OVER 20 YEARS.
  • 00:22:09.200 --> 00:22:11.230
  • I STARTED WHEN I WAS 10.
  • 00:22:11.230 --> 00:22:13.180
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:22:15.090 --> 00:22:18.090
  • YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY ONE.
  • 00:22:18.090 --> 00:22:21.070
  • YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY ONE.
  • 00:22:21.070 --> 00:22:23.220
  • THE NUMBER TWO LIE
  • 00:22:23.220 --> 00:22:24.180
  • THAT HE'LL TELL YOU
  • 00:22:24.180 --> 00:22:25.220
  • IS THAT IF YOU ADDRESS THIS,
  • 00:22:25.280 --> 00:22:28.280
  • NO ONE'S GONNA RESPECT YOU,
  • 00:22:29.070 --> 00:22:32.070
  • OR IF YOU DEAL WITH THIS,
  • 00:22:32.070 --> 00:22:34.090
  • THEY'LL REJECT YOU,
  • 00:22:34.090 --> 00:22:37.050
  • AND CAN I TELL YOU
  • 00:22:37.050 --> 00:22:37.230
  • IT'S A LIE?
  • 00:22:37.230 --> 00:22:40.170
  • I HAVE FOUND
  • 00:22:40.170 --> 00:22:42.120
  • THAT WHEN I OPEN UP
  • 00:22:42.120 --> 00:22:43.020
  • MY WEAKNESSES,
  • 00:22:43.020 --> 00:22:45.100
  • THE RESPECT GOES UP,
  • 00:22:45.100 --> 00:22:47.090
  • NOT DOWN.
  • 00:22:47.090 --> 00:22:48.080
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:22:51.110 --> 00:22:54.110
  • JUST A SIDE NOTE,
  • 00:22:54.110 --> 00:22:55.080
  • AND THIS IS THE CHALLENGE
  • 00:22:56.150 --> 00:22:59.150
  • WITH A WAY A LOT OF PASTORS
  • 00:22:59.150 --> 00:23:00.290
  • WERE TRAINED YEARS AGO.
  • 00:23:00.290 --> 00:23:03.060
  • IT WAS NEVER SHOW
  • 00:23:03.060 --> 00:23:03.280
  • THE PEOPLE ANY WEAKNESS,
  • 00:23:03.280 --> 00:23:05.180
  • AND SO THE PEOPLE THOUGHT
  • 00:23:05.180 --> 00:23:06.070
  • THE PASTOR HAD NO WEAKNESSES
  • 00:23:06.070 --> 00:23:07.240
  • AND THEY WERE SUPPOSED
  • 00:23:07.240 --> 00:23:08.100
  • TO HAVE NO WEAKNESSES,
  • 00:23:08.100 --> 00:23:09.180
  • SO IT JUST STARTED THIS
  • 00:23:09.180 --> 00:23:10.150
  • CYCLE OF EVERYBODY
  • 00:23:10.150 --> 00:23:11.110
  • HIDING THEIR JUNK,
  • 00:23:11.110 --> 00:23:12.090
  • ACTING LIKE EVERYTHING
  • 00:23:12.090 --> 00:23:13.010
  • WAS OKAY, AND IT'S NOT.
  • 00:23:13.070 --> 00:23:16.070
  • AND SO, YOU'RE REAL
  • 00:23:16.070 --> 00:23:16.270
  • AND I'M REAL,
  • 00:23:16.270 --> 00:23:18.110
  • AND WE'VE ALL GOT SOME ISSUES
  • 00:23:18.110 --> 00:23:20.140
  • THAT WE'VE GOT TO DEFINE,
  • 00:23:20.140 --> 00:23:21.270
  • WE'VE GOT TO EXPLORE,
  • 00:23:21.270 --> 00:23:22.280
  • WE'VE GOT TO IDENTIFY,
  • 00:23:22.280 --> 00:23:24.220
  • AND THEN NUMBER FOUR,
  • 00:23:24.220 --> 00:23:25.120
  • WE'VE GOT TO PRESENT.
  • 00:23:25.120 --> 00:23:27.210
  • PRESENT.
  • 00:23:27.210 --> 00:23:28.130
  • PRESENT TO WHO?
  • 00:23:28.130 --> 00:23:29.190
  • PRESENT IT TO GOD.
  • 00:23:29.190 --> 00:23:32.140
  • YOU NEED SOME PEOPLE AROUND YOU.
  • 00:23:32.140 --> 00:23:33.180
  • YOU NEED A SMALL GROUP.
  • 00:23:33.180 --> 00:23:34.260
  • YOU DO NEED THAT.
  • 00:23:34.260 --> 00:23:35.120
  • YOU DON'T NEED
  • 00:23:35.120 --> 00:23:35.250
  • TO TELL EVERYBODY,
  • 00:23:35.250 --> 00:23:36.170
  • YOU DON'T NEED
  • 00:23:36.170 --> 00:23:36.290
  • TO PUT IT ON FACEBOOK.
  • 00:23:36.290 --> 00:23:37.260
  • COME ON, SOMEBODY.
  • 00:23:37.260 --> 00:23:38.190
  • PLEASE, GOD,
  • 00:23:38.190 --> 00:23:39.050
  • DON'T PUT IT ON FACEBOOK.
  • 00:23:39.050 --> 00:23:40.150
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:23:40.150 --> 00:23:43.020
  • BUT YOU DO NEED
  • 00:23:43.020 --> 00:23:43.220
  • TO TELL SOME PEOPLE.
  • 00:23:43.220 --> 00:23:44.160
  • THIS IS WHAT PAUL SAID.
  • 00:23:44.160 --> 00:23:45.110
  • WE'LL WRAP UP WITH THIS.
  • 00:23:45.110 --> 00:23:48.090
  • ROMANS 12:1-2, HE SAID,
  • 00:23:48.090 --> 00:23:49.100
  • "THEREFORE I URGE YOU,
  • 00:23:49.100 --> 00:23:50.030
  • BROTHERS,
  • 00:23:50.030 --> 00:23:50.170
  • IN VIEW OF GOD'S MERCY,
  • 00:23:50.170 --> 00:23:52.130
  • TO OFFER YOUR BODIES."
  • 00:23:52.130 --> 00:23:54.140
  • WHAT'S IN YOUR BODY?
  • 00:23:54.140 --> 00:23:55.090
  • A SOUL AND YOUR SPIRIT.
  • 00:23:55.090 --> 00:23:57.250
  • "AS A LIVING SACRIFICE,
  • 00:23:57.250 --> 00:24:00.040
  • HOLY AND PLEASING TO GOD -
  • 00:24:00.040 --> 00:24:01.250
  • THIS IS YOUR SPIRITUAL
  • 00:24:01.250 --> 00:24:02.280
  • ACT OF WORSHIP."
  • 00:24:02.280 --> 00:24:04.190
  • THIS IS WORSHIP,
  • 00:24:04.190 --> 00:24:05.100
  • WHAT PAUL SAYS.
  • 00:24:05.100 --> 00:24:06.280
  • "DO NOT CONFORM ANY LONGER
  • 00:24:06.280 --> 00:24:08.030
  • TO THE PATTERN OF THIS WORLD,
  • 00:24:08.030 --> 00:24:09.090
  • BUT BE TRANSFORMED
  • 00:24:09.090 --> 00:24:10.220
  • BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND,
  • 00:24:10.220 --> 00:24:12.010
  • THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO TEST
  • 00:24:12.010 --> 00:24:12.290
  • AND APPROVE WHAT
  • 00:24:12.290 --> 00:24:14.020
  • GOD'S WILL IS -
  • 00:24:14.020 --> 00:24:15.180
  • HIS GOOD AND PLEASING
  • 00:24:15.180 --> 00:24:16.070
  • AND PERFECT WILL."
  • 00:24:16.070 --> 00:24:17.180
  • HE SAYS PRESENT
  • 00:24:17.180 --> 00:24:18.190
  • YOUR WHOLE SELF TO GOD.
  • 00:24:18.190 --> 00:24:20.130
  • GOD, ALL OF MY HANG-UPS,
  • 00:24:20.130 --> 00:24:21.100
  • ALL OF MY ISSUES, EVERYTHING.
  • 00:24:21.100 --> 00:24:23.010
  • IT'S KIND OF THIS GAME
  • 00:24:23.010 --> 00:24:23.270
  • WE PLAY WITH GOD, LIKE GOD,
  • 00:24:23.270 --> 00:24:25.010
  • YOU CAN HAVE ALL OF ME,
  • 00:24:25.010 --> 00:24:26.060
  • BUT I'M GONNA KEEP
  • 00:24:26.060 --> 00:24:26.220
  • THIS ONE COMPARTMENT.
  • 00:24:26.220 --> 00:24:27.200
  • I DON'T WANT YOU
  • 00:24:27.200 --> 00:24:28.060
  • KNOWING ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:24:28.060 --> 00:24:29.170
  • LIKE GOD DON'T KNOW!
  • 00:24:31.030 --> 00:24:34.030
  • PAUL SAYS, NO, NO, NO,
  • 00:24:34.030 --> 00:24:35.050
  • THIS IS WORSHIP -
  • 00:24:35.050 --> 00:24:36.160
  • NOT HOW LOUD YOU SING,
  • 00:24:36.160 --> 00:24:37.280
  • NOT HOW LONG
  • 00:24:37.280 --> 00:24:38.110
  • YOU CAN RAISE YOUR HANDS.
  • 00:24:38.110 --> 00:24:39.170
  • ALL THAT IS GREAT
  • 00:24:39.170 --> 00:24:40.080
  • AND GOD LOVES THAT,
  • 00:24:40.080 --> 00:24:42.110
  • BUT GOD WOULD MUCH RATHER
  • 00:24:42.110 --> 00:24:43.040
  • YOU JUST COME BEFORE HIM,
  • 00:24:43.040 --> 00:24:45.050
  • IN YOUR CAR,
  • 00:24:45.050 --> 00:24:46.180
  • IN YOUR LIVING ROOM,
  • 00:24:46.180 --> 00:24:47.190
  • AND GO, GOD,
  • 00:24:47.190 --> 00:24:49.000
  • HERE'S ALL OF ME.
  • 00:24:49.000 --> 00:24:51.110
  • I'M INSECURE, GOD.
  • 00:24:51.110 --> 00:24:53.150
  • I HAVE AN ISSUE
  • 00:24:53.150 --> 00:24:54.010
  • WITH ANGER, GOD.
  • 00:24:54.050 --> 00:24:57.050
  • WHEN YOU DO THAT,
  • 00:24:57.050 --> 00:24:57.200
  • GOD GOES, ALL RIGHT,
  • 00:24:57.200 --> 00:25:00.100
  • I CAN DO SOMETHING WITH THAT.
  • 00:25:00.100 --> 00:25:02.260
  • I CAN WORK WITH THAT.
  • 00:25:02.260 --> 00:25:05.120
  • I CAN WORK WITH HONESTY,
  • 00:25:05.120 --> 00:25:06.140
  • I CAN WORK WITH OPENNESS.
  • 00:25:06.140 --> 00:25:09.060
  • I CAN WORK WITH THAT.
  • 00:25:09.060 --> 00:25:10.240
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:25:10.240 --> 00:25:11.080
  • THEN HE STARTS TAKING
  • 00:25:11.080 --> 00:25:12.070
  • THE SPIRIT AND THE WORD,
  • 00:25:12.070 --> 00:25:14.190
  • AND HE STARTS TRANSFORMING YOU,
  • 00:25:14.280 --> 00:25:17.280
  • AND RENEWING YOU,
  • 00:25:17.280 --> 00:25:19.180
  • AND MAKING YOU NEW.
  • 00:25:19.180 --> 00:25:21.270
  • THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN,
  • 00:25:21.270 --> 00:25:22.150
  • PEOPLE ARE GOING, MAN,
  • 00:25:22.150 --> 00:25:23.170
  • SOMETHING'S DIFFERENT
  • 00:25:23.170 --> 00:25:24.050
  • ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:25:24.050 --> 00:25:24.180
  • WHAT'S GOING ON?
  • 00:25:24.180 --> 00:25:26.090
  • AND YOU'RE LIKE,
  • 00:25:26.090 --> 00:25:27.120
  • I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:25:27.120 --> 00:25:27.250
  • I GOT CHURCH, WORSHIP,
  • 00:25:27.250 --> 00:25:30.220
  • IN THE WORD, PRAYING,
  • 00:25:30.230 --> 00:25:33.230
  • AND COMMUNITY.
  • 00:25:33.230 --> 00:25:35.120
  • I DON'T JUST --
  • 00:25:35.120 --> 00:25:37.120
  • NOT PERFECT?
  • 00:25:37.120 --> 00:25:38.240
  • NO, BUT YOU'RE BEING RENEWED.
  • 00:25:38.260 --> 00:25:41.260
  • YOU KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENING?
  • 00:25:41.260 --> 00:25:42.260
  • THE SPIRIT'S GROWING
  • 00:25:42.260 --> 00:25:44.170
  • STRONGER, STRONGER,
  • 00:25:44.170 --> 00:25:46.050
  • STRONGER, STRONGER.
  • 00:25:46.050 --> 00:25:47.050
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:25:49.220 --> 00:25:52.220
  • WE ALL NEED
  • 00:25:52.220 --> 00:25:53.080
  • A LITTLE COUNSELING.
  • 00:25:54.050 --> 00:25:57.050
  • WE NEED SOME COUNSELING
  • 00:25:57.050 --> 00:25:58.010
  • THAT SAYS STOP TRYING
  • 00:25:58.010 --> 00:25:59.120
  • TO MAKE YOUR TREE LOOK PRETTY,
  • 00:25:59.130 --> 00:26:02.150
  • AND DEAL WITH THE ROOT.
  • 00:26:02.150 --> 00:26:04.150
  • NURTURE THE ROOT,
  • 00:26:04.150 --> 00:26:06.040
  • FERTILIZE THE ROOT,
  • 00:26:06.040 --> 00:26:07.260
  • WATER THE ROOT.
  • 00:26:07.260 --> 00:26:10.020
  • IF YOU DEAL WITH THE ROOTS,
  • 00:26:10.020 --> 00:26:11.270
  • GOD'LL TAKE CARE OF THE TREE.
  • 00:26:11.270 --> 00:26:14.060
  • IF YOU DEAL WITH THE ROOT,
  • 00:26:14.060 --> 00:26:15.260
  • THE SPIRIT OF GOD
  • 00:26:15.260 --> 00:26:17.050
  • WILL PRODUCE THE FRUIT
  • 00:26:17.050 --> 00:26:18.170
  • - HEY, I HOPE YOU ENJOYED
  • 00:26:22.120 --> 00:26:23.050
  • TODAY'S MESSAGE.
  • 00:26:23.050 --> 00:26:24.030
  • YOU KNOW,
  • 00:26:24.030 --> 00:26:24.140
  • IT'S SO EASY FOR US, MYSELF,
  • 00:26:24.140 --> 00:26:26.060
  • I IMAGINE YOU INCLUDED,
  • 00:26:26.060 --> 00:26:27.240
  • TO WANT TO PRESENT
  • 00:26:27.240 --> 00:26:28.110
  • THE VERY BEST OF US.
  • 00:26:28.110 --> 00:26:29.200
  • I USED THE ILLUSTRATION
  • 00:26:29.200 --> 00:26:30.110
  • OF A TREE.
  • 00:26:30.110 --> 00:26:31.170
  • WE WANT THE TREE
  • 00:26:31.170 --> 00:26:32.040
  • TO LOOK WONDERFUL, BUT YOU KNOW,
  • 00:26:32.040 --> 00:26:33.250
  • IT'S REALLY THE ROOT SYSTEM
  • 00:26:33.250 --> 00:26:35.200
  • THAT DETERMINES
  • 00:26:35.200 --> 00:26:36.020
  • HOW THE TREE LOOKS.
  • 00:26:36.020 --> 00:26:37.120
  • THE ROOTS,
  • 00:26:37.120 --> 00:26:38.040
  • IF THEY'RE DYSFUNCTIONAL,
  • 00:26:38.040 --> 00:26:39.040
  • BROKEN, SOMETHING'S WRONG,
  • 00:26:39.040 --> 00:26:41.010
  • THE TREE IS NOT
  • 00:26:41.010 --> 00:26:41.250
  • GONNA BE HEALTHY,
  • 00:26:41.250 --> 00:26:43.010
  • AND THE SAME IS TRUE
  • 00:26:43.010 --> 00:26:43.220
  • IN OUR LIFE.
  • 00:26:43.220 --> 00:26:44.220
  • WE CAN COVER UP,
  • 00:26:44.220 --> 00:26:46.030
  • AND WE CAN MASK,
  • 00:26:46.030 --> 00:26:47.050
  • AND WE CAN PRESENT
  • 00:26:47.050 --> 00:26:47.270
  • THE VERY BEST
  • 00:26:47.270 --> 00:26:48.180
  • THAT WE WANT TO PEOPLE,
  • 00:26:48.180 --> 00:26:50.120
  • BUT IF ON THE INSIDE
  • 00:26:50.120 --> 00:26:51.150
  • THE ROOTS OF OUR LIFE
  • 00:26:51.150 --> 00:26:53.070
  • ARE UNHEALTHY
  • 00:26:53.070 --> 00:26:53.240
  • AND DYSFUNCTIONAL,
  • 00:26:53.240 --> 00:26:55.110
  • THEN EVENTUALLY
  • 00:26:55.110 --> 00:26:56.070
  • IT'S GONNA SHOW
  • 00:26:56.070 --> 00:26:56.190
  • ITSELF ON THE OUTSIDE.
  • 00:26:56.190 --> 00:26:57.080
  • AND WHAT'S EVEN WORSE
  • 00:26:57.080 --> 00:26:59.180
  • IS SOMETIMES
  • 00:26:59.180 --> 00:27:00.030
  • WE CAN DO THAT WITH GOD.
  • 00:27:00.030 --> 00:27:01.120
  • WE JUST WANT TO PRESENT
  • 00:27:01.120 --> 00:27:02.070
  • THE BEST OF US TO GOD,
  • 00:27:02.070 --> 00:27:03.240
  • BUT I WANT YOU TO KNOW TODAY,
  • 00:27:03.240 --> 00:27:04.200
  • GOD CAN HANDLE ALL OF YOU.
  • 00:27:04.200 --> 00:27:06.150
  • HE SAYS, "PRESENT YOURSELF
  • 00:27:06.150 --> 00:27:08.110
  • TO ME, PRESENT
  • 00:27:08.110 --> 00:27:09.250
  • ALL OF YOU TO ME."
  • 00:27:09.250 --> 00:27:11.060
  • WHENEVER YOU DO THAT,
  • 00:27:11.060 --> 00:27:12.100
  • GOD HAS A WAY OF HEALING,
  • 00:27:12.100 --> 00:27:13.280
  • AND GOD HAS A WAY
  • 00:27:13.280 --> 00:27:15.010
  • OF PUTTING BACK TOGETHER
  • 00:27:15.010 --> 00:27:16.060
  • YOUR STORY,
  • 00:27:16.060 --> 00:27:17.140
  • AND MENDING THE BROKEN AREAS
  • 00:27:17.140 --> 00:27:19.210
  • OF OUR LIVES.
  • 00:27:19.210 --> 00:27:20.170
  • IF WE'LL FIX THE ROOTS,
  • 00:27:20.170 --> 00:27:22.120
  • EVERYTHING ELSE
  • 00:27:22.120 --> 00:27:23.000
  • WILL TAKE CARE OF ITSELF.
  • 00:27:23.000 --> 00:27:24.200
  • THANKS SO MUCH
  • 00:27:24.200 --> 00:27:25.010
  • FOR JOINING US TODAY,
  • 00:27:25.010 --> 00:27:26.100
  • AND I HOPE TO SEE YOU
  • 00:27:26.100 --> 00:27:27.050
