  • LIKE THIS, BUT IT'S JUST A VAPOR.
  • 00:00:02.170 --> 00:00:05.030
  • ALL THAT STRESS.
  • 00:00:05.060 --> 00:00:06.090
  • (GASPS) IS MY KID GONNA GET A 4.0?
  • 00:00:06.120 --> 00:00:08.080
  • VAPOR. (AUDIENCE LAUGHS)
  • 00:00:08.110 --> 00:00:10.140
  • YOU KNOW?
  • 00:00:10.170 --> 00:00:12.010
  • WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN WITH ALL THE STOCKS?
  • 00:00:12.040 --> 00:00:13.280
  • VAPOR.
  • 00:00:14.010 --> 00:00:15.180
  • (GASPS) WHO'S GONNA BE IN GOVERNMENT?
  • 00:00:15.210 --> 00:00:17.090
  • VAPOR.
  • 00:00:17.120 --> 00:00:18.130
  • ALL THE THINGS YOU'RE LOSING,
  • 00:00:18.160 --> 00:00:19.220
  • IS THAT GUY GONNA LIKE ME?
  • 00:00:19.250 --> 00:00:21.030
  • VAPOR, VAPOR, VAPOR. (AUDIENCE LAUGHS)
  • 00:00:21.060 --> 00:00:27.010
  • ARE YOU A RISK TAKER?
  • 00:00:27.040 --> 00:00:28.120
  • OR DO YOU PREFER TO PLAY IT SAFE?
  • 00:00:28.150 --> 00:00:30.150
  • GROWING UP, I WAS A PLAY-IT-SAFE KIND OF GIRL,
  • 00:00:30.180 --> 00:00:33.060
  • BUT WHEN I MET JESUS, THAT CHANGED.
  • 00:00:33.090 --> 00:00:35.170
  • I REALIZED THAT TO FOLLOW HIM,
  • 00:00:35.200 --> 00:00:37.170
  • YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING TO TAKE SOME RISKS,
  • 00:00:37.200 --> 00:00:39.260
  • TO DARE TO DREAM BIG,
  • 00:00:39.290 --> 00:00:41.140
  • TO DO THINGS THAT OTHERS HAVE SAID WERE IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:00:41.170 --> 00:00:44.230
  • SO, DO NOT LET FEAR HOLD YOU BACK
  • 00:00:44.260 --> 00:00:46.170
  • FROM YOUR DESTINY ONE DAY LONGER.
  • 00:00:46.200 --> 00:00:49.020
  • IT'S TIME TO STEP OUT AND TO BE COURAGEOUS.
  • 00:00:49.050 --> 00:00:52.020
  • I'M CHRISTINE CAINE,
  • 00:00:52.050 --> 00:00:53.070
  • AND I HAVE A PERSONAL MISSION TO EQUIP
  • 00:00:53.100 --> 00:00:55.160
  • AND EMPOWER PEOPLE JUST LIKE YOU TO CONNECT
  • 00:00:55.190 --> 00:00:58.170
  • WITH YOUR GOD-GIVEN PURPOSE AND POTENTIAL.
  • 00:00:58.200 --> 00:01:00.250
  • I AM SO GLAD THAT YOU'RE JOINING US TODAY.
  • 00:01:00.280 --> 00:01:03.070
  • LET'S DIVE STRAIGHT INTO THE WORD.
  • 00:01:03.100 --> 00:01:06.100
  • (GENTLE, UPBEAT MUSIC)
  • 00:01:06.130 --> 00:01:15.240
  • (AUDIENCE APPLAUDS)
  • 00:01:15.270 --> 00:01:18.130
  • HEY, EVERYONE.
  • 00:01:18.160 --> 00:01:20.130
  • I AM SO GLAD THAT YOU'VE JOINED US TODAY.
  • 00:01:20.160 --> 00:01:22.270
  • THANK YOU FOR TUNING IN.
  • 00:01:23.000 --> 00:01:24.060
  • I KNOW THAT GOD HAS A WORD FOR YOU.
  • 00:01:24.090 --> 00:01:25.260
  • WE'RE GONNA HAVE A FANTASTIC TIME OVER THE NEXT COUPLE
  • 00:01:25.290 --> 00:01:28.120
  • OF WEEKS AS WE'RE GONNA TALK ABOUT TAKING RISKS.
  • 00:01:28.150 --> 00:01:31.260
  • THAT FOR ME IS VERY EXCITING.
  • 00:01:31.290 --> 00:01:33.080
  • YOU KNOW, GOD NEVER CALLED US TO A BORING LIFE
  • 00:01:33.110 --> 00:01:36.140
  • OF JUST MERELY EXISTING,
  • 00:01:36.170 --> 00:01:38.060
  • A LIFE OF SAFETY OR A LIFE OF COMFORT.
  • 00:01:38.090 --> 00:01:40.250
  • GOD HAS CALLED US
  • 00:01:40.280 --> 00:01:41.290
  • TO A PASSIONATE PURPOSE-DRIVEN LIFE FULL OF RISK.
  • 00:01:42.020 --> 00:01:45.050
  • THAT ACTUALLY IS THE ESSENCE OF FAITH.
  • 00:01:45.080 --> 00:01:47.000
  • YOU'VE GOTTA TAKE RISKS.
  • 00:01:47.030 --> 00:01:48.090
  • AND YOU KNOW, IN OUR WORLD TODAY, THERE IS SO MUCH FEAR.
  • 00:01:48.120 --> 00:01:50.280
  • THERE IS SO MUCH TERROR.
  • 00:01:51.010 --> 00:01:52.100
  • PEOPLE ARE PULLING BACK AND KIND OF LOOKING
  • 00:01:52.130 --> 00:01:54.260
  • FOR SOME SORT OF SAFETY AND SECURITY.
  • 00:01:54.290 --> 00:01:57.190
  • BUT WE ARE GONNA TALK ABOUT THE JOY
  • 00:01:57.220 --> 00:01:59.070
  • AND THE ADVENTURE OF STEPPING OUT IN FAITH,
  • 00:01:59.100 --> 00:02:01.230
  • LAYING A HOLD OF THE PURPOSE OF GOD FOR YOUR LIFE
  • 00:02:01.260 --> 00:02:04.110
  • AND FOR YOUR GENERATION AND UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:02:04.140 --> 00:02:06.120
  • THAT GOD HAS SO MUCH MORE FOR YOU
  • 00:02:06.150 --> 00:02:08.140
  • THAN WHERE YOU ARE RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:02:08.170 --> 00:02:09.290
  • WELL, THOSE OF YOU THAT DON'T KNOW ME,
  • 00:02:10.020 --> 00:02:11.210
  • I AM A GREEK-AUSTRALIAN GIRL,
  • 00:02:11.240 --> 00:02:14.290
  • AND SO I GREW UP SPEAKING GREEK.
  • 00:02:15.020 --> 00:02:17.070
  • I DIDN'T SPEAK ENGLISH UNTIL I WAS FIVE YEARS OLD.
  • 00:02:17.100 --> 00:02:20.020
  • AND SO IF YOU HAVE SEEN MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING,
  • 00:02:20.050 --> 00:02:23.070
  • THAT IS MY BIG FAT GREEK LIFE.
  • 00:02:23.100 --> 00:02:24.280
  • EVERY PART OF THAT IS EXACTLY THE TRUTH.
  • 00:02:25.010 --> 00:02:27.180
  • I HAD COLUMNS IN MY HOUSE.
  • 00:02:27.210 --> 00:02:29.100
  • I WORE TAFFETA.
  • 00:02:29.130 --> 00:02:30.140
  • I HAD VERY BIG PERMED HAIR BECAUSE I'M THAT OLD,
  • 00:02:30.170 --> 00:02:33.260
  • AND SO I WOULD EAT LOTS OF BAKLAVA,
  • 00:02:33.290 --> 00:02:36.190
  • LOTS OF FETA CHEESE.
  • 00:02:36.220 --> 00:02:38.020
  • THAT'S KIND OF JUST HOW IT WAS.
  • 00:02:38.050 --> 00:02:39.110
  • WELL, GREEKS ARE FATALISTS.
  • 00:02:39.140 --> 00:02:41.090
  • IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER.
  • 00:02:41.120 --> 00:02:42.230
  • YOU KNOW, HOW BAD LIFE IS, IT CAN ALWAYS GET WORSE.
  • 00:02:42.260 --> 00:02:45.190
  • IF YOU HANG AROUND MY FAMILY AT ALL, THINGS CAN ALWAYS GET,
  • 00:02:45.220 --> 00:02:49.140
  • YOU'VE GOT PEOPLE LIKE THAT IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:02:49.170 --> 00:02:50.260
  • WHERE YOU JUST GO THINGS ARE HAPPENING,
  • 00:02:50.290 --> 00:02:53.030
  • AND THEY'LL SAY BUT LET ME, I CAN TOP IT.
  • 00:02:53.060 --> 00:02:54.210
  • I CAN TELL YOU A BETTER STORY
  • 00:02:54.240 --> 00:02:56.020
  • OF HOW MUCH WORSE IT WAS FOR ME.
  • 00:02:56.050 --> 00:02:57.140
  • WE'VE ALL GOT THOSE KIND OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:02:57.170 --> 00:02:59.020
  • WELL, I GREW UP, AND MY MOTHER FOR YEARS ALWAYS SAID
  • 00:02:59.050 --> 00:03:01.250
  • CHRISTINE, YOU KNOW, YOU SHOULD NEVER GO SKIING.
  • 00:03:01.280 --> 00:03:03.290
  • THERE WAS LOTS OF DIFFERENT THINGS SHE SAID
  • 00:03:04.020 --> 00:03:05.160
  • YOU SHOULD NEVER DO BECAUSE IT'S VERY, VERY DANGEROUS.
  • 00:03:05.190 --> 00:03:08.120
  • WELL, I WENT SKIING ONE DAY, SNOW SKIING IN MY 40S,
  • 00:03:08.150 --> 00:03:12.080
  • AND MY MOTHER'S PREMONITION CAME TRUE.
  • 00:03:12.110 --> 00:03:14.080
  • SHE ALWAYS SAID IF YOU SKI,
  • 00:03:14.110 --> 00:03:15.210
  • YOU'RE GONNA HAVE A BIG ACCIDENT.
  • 00:03:15.240 --> 00:03:16.200
  • WELL, I DID.
  • 00:03:16.230 --> 00:03:17.210
  • I ENDED UP SNAPPING MY ACL, TEARING MY MCL,
  • 00:03:17.240 --> 00:03:20.140
  • TEARING MY MENISCUS.
  • 00:03:20.170 --> 00:03:21.280
  • AND THEY HAD TO PUT ME IN THE SKI PATROL.
  • 00:03:22.010 --> 00:03:24.000
  • I WENT DOWN THE MOUNTAIN.
  • 00:03:24.030 --> 00:03:25.120
  • EVERYONE WAS LAUGHING.
  • 00:03:25.150 --> 00:03:26.080
  • WHO'S THAT NERD?
  • 00:03:26.110 --> 00:03:27.030
  • IT WAS ME. (AUDIENCE LAUGHS)
  • 00:03:27.060 --> 00:03:29.000
  • AND THEY HAD TO PUT ME INTO THE BACK OF AN AMBULANCE,
  • 00:03:29.030 --> 00:03:31.230
  • AND THEN I HAD TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL.
  • 00:03:31.260 --> 00:03:33.080
  • SO, IT WAS VERY, VERY SERIOUS.
  • 00:03:33.110 --> 00:03:35.020
  • WELL, THE FACT WAS BEFORE THAT SKI INJURY
  • 00:03:35.050 --> 00:03:39.090
  • AND I SNAPPED MY ACL, CAN I TELL YOU THE TRUTH?
  • 00:03:39.120 --> 00:03:42.110
  • I DID NOT EVEN KNOW THAT I HAD AN ACL.
  • 00:03:42.140 --> 00:03:46.080
  • I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT THING WAS.
  • 00:03:46.110 --> 00:03:48.210
  • I DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS EVEN CONNECTED TO MY WHOLE BODY.
  • 00:03:48.240 --> 00:03:51.120
  • BUT I LEARNT A LOT THAT DAY.
  • 00:03:51.150 --> 00:03:52.170
  • I LEARNT A WHOLE LOT ABOUT MY BODY
  • 00:03:52.200 --> 00:03:54.220
  • AND ALL THE DIFFERENT BITS,
  • 00:03:54.250 --> 00:03:55.290
  • BUT THE FUNNY THING WAS WHEN I WENT BACK
  • 00:03:56.020 --> 00:03:58.000
  • TO AUSTRALIA TO HAVE SURGERY,
  • 00:03:58.030 --> 00:03:59.070
  • I HAD THE ACCIDENT IN COLORADO.
  • 00:03:59.100 --> 00:04:00.250
  • THEY FLEW ME BACK TO AUSTRALIA.
  • 00:04:00.280 --> 00:04:03.030
  • AFTER I HAD SURGERY, MY MOTHER,
  • 00:04:03.060 --> 00:04:04.220
  • IN HER NICE GREEK-POSITIVE WAY SAID SEE, CHRISTINA,
  • 00:04:04.250 --> 00:04:07.270
  • I'M GO GLAD THAT HAPPENED TO YOU
  • 00:04:08.000 --> 00:04:09.050
  • BECAUSE IT PROVED THAT I'M RIGHT.
  • 00:04:09.080 --> 00:04:10.190
  • IT PROVE (LAUGHS).
  • 00:04:10.220 --> 00:04:11.260
  • AND YOU KNOW THOSE KINDS OF PEOPLE
  • 00:04:11.290 --> 00:04:12.290
  • THAT ARE LIKE EVEN IF YOU NEARLY DIED,
  • 00:04:13.020 --> 00:04:14.140
  • I'M GLAD IT HAPPENED BECAUSE I TOLD YOU.
  • 00:04:14.170 --> 00:04:15.270
  • YOU WERE NEARLY GOING TO DIE.
  • 00:04:16.000 --> 00:04:17.130
  • WELL, ANYWAY, IT'S IN THE NATION OF AUSTRALIA
  • 00:04:17.160 --> 00:04:20.250
  • WE HAVE THIS THING CALLED THE TALL POPPY SYNDROME.
  • 00:04:20.280 --> 00:04:24.040
  • I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAVE THAT HERE IN AMERICA,
  • 00:04:24.070 --> 00:04:26.000
  • BUT BASICALLY, WE LIKE TO PULL DOWN PEOPLE.
  • 00:04:26.030 --> 00:04:28.090
  • WE DON'T WANT ANYBODY TO COME UP OUT OF THE CROWD,
  • 00:04:28.120 --> 00:04:31.020
  • ANYONE TO SEEM LIKE THEY'RE GOING TOO FAR.
  • 00:04:31.050 --> 00:04:33.290
  • IF THEY THINK THAT YOU'RE A LITTLE BIT TOO BIG
  • 00:04:34.020 --> 00:04:35.140
  • FOR YOUR BOOTS, THEY'RE GONNA PULL YOU DOWN TO SIZE.
  • 00:04:35.170 --> 00:04:38.000
  • SO, NOT ONLY DID I GROW UP IN A FAMILY
  • 00:04:38.030 --> 00:04:41.070
  • THAT WAS ALL VERY BE CAREFUL.
  • 00:04:41.100 --> 00:04:43.020
  • YOU'RE GONNA HAVE AN ACCIDENT.
  • 00:04:43.050 --> 00:04:43.290
  • DON'T STEP OUT.
  • 00:04:44.020 --> 00:04:44.240
  • YOU MIGHT DIE.
  • 00:04:44.270 --> 00:04:45.290
  • I ALSO GREW UP IN A CULTURE THAT WAS
  • 00:04:46.020 --> 00:04:47.190
  • DON'T STICK YOUR HEAD UP OUT OF THE CROWD.
  • 00:04:47.220 --> 00:04:49.240
  • DON'T TRY TO ACHIEVE SOMETHING THAT ANYBODY ELSE HAS DONE.
  • 00:04:49.270 --> 00:04:53.100
  • JUST STAY WITH THE STATUS QUO.
  • 00:04:53.130 --> 00:04:54.290
  • NORMAL IS NICE.
  • 00:04:55.020 --> 00:04:56.050
  • NORMAL IS GOOD.
  • 00:04:56.080 --> 00:04:57.130
  • SO, IN AUSTRALIA, I GREW UP WITH THESE KIND OF SAYINGS,
  • 00:04:57.160 --> 00:05:00.130
  • AND PERHAPS YOU CAN FINISH THE SENTENCE
  • 00:05:00.160 --> 00:05:02.200
  • IF YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY
  • 00:05:02.230 --> 00:05:04.190
  • BECAUSE BASICALLY WE'RE PROGRAMMED TO STAY SAFE.
  • 00:05:04.220 --> 00:05:07.210
  • SO, THOSE SAYINGS LIKE YOU CAN'T HAVE YOUR CAKE AND,
  • 00:05:07.240 --> 00:05:10.030
  • - [AUDIENCE] EAT IT TOO.
  • 00:05:10.060 --> 00:05:10.280
  • - EAT IT TOO.
  • 00:05:11.010 --> 00:05:11.240
  • IF IT IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE,
  • 00:05:11.270 --> 00:05:14.070
  • IT PROBABLY IS.
  • 00:05:14.100 --> 00:05:15.130
  • IF IT CAN GO WRONG,
  • 00:05:15.160 --> 00:05:16.230
  • - [CHRISTINE AND AUDIENCE] IT WILL.
  • 00:05:16.260 --> 00:05:17.290
  • - EVERYTHING THAT GOES UP,
  • 00:05:18.020 --> 00:05:19.110
  • - [AUDIENCE] MUST COME DOWN.
  • 00:05:19.140 --> 00:05:20.140
  • - KEEP BOTH FEET,
  • 00:05:20.170 --> 00:05:21.220
  • - [AUDIENCE] ON THE GROUND.
  • 00:05:21.250 --> 00:05:22.170
  • - DON'T COUNT YOUR CHICKENS,
  • 00:05:22.200 --> 00:05:23.240
  • - [AUDIENCE] BEFORE THEY HATCH.
  • 00:05:23.270 --> 00:05:25.000
  • - SEE, YOU ALL HAD A NEGATIVE GREEK MOTHER AS WELL.
  • 00:05:25.030 --> 00:05:27.040
  • THAT'S WHAT I'M CONVINCED ABOUT,
  • 00:05:27.070 --> 00:05:28.170
  • AND I GUARANTEE YOU EVERYONE
  • 00:05:28.200 --> 00:05:29.220
  • AT HOME ANSWERED EVERY ONE OF THOSE AS WELL
  • 00:05:29.250 --> 00:05:32.260
  • BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT WE'RE BROUGHT UP WITH.
  • 00:05:32.290 --> 00:05:34.200
  • WE'RE BROUGHT UP TO BELIEVE YOU'VE GOTTA STAY SAFE.
  • 00:05:34.230 --> 00:05:38.080
  • YOU KNOW, DON'T GET TOO EXCITED.
  • 00:05:38.110 --> 00:05:40.080
  • DON'T BELIEVE FOR TOO MUCH.
  • 00:05:40.110 --> 00:05:41.150
  • THE SAD THING IS WHEN THAT COMES OVER INTO OUR CHRISTIANITY
  • 00:05:41.180 --> 00:05:44.070
  • WHERE PEOPLE ARE YOU KNOW WHAT,
  • 00:05:44.100 --> 00:05:45.100
  • DON'T EXPECT GOD TO DO TOO MUCH.
  • 00:05:45.130 --> 00:05:47.020
  • DON'T BELIEVE GOD FOR TOO MUCH.
  • 00:05:47.050 --> 00:05:48.230
  • JUST STAY SAFE.
  • 00:05:48.260 --> 00:05:50.020
  • STAY IN THE BOAT.
  • 00:05:50.050 --> 00:05:51.120
  • JUST STAY WITH THE STATUS QUO.
  • 00:05:51.150 --> 00:05:53.240
  • BUT THE FACT IS THAT SO MANY OF US LIVE OUR LIVES IN FEAR.
  • 00:05:53.270 --> 00:05:59.200
  • WE LIVE OUR LIVES JUST IN WHAT WE PERCEIVE TO BE THE SAFETY
  • 00:05:59.230 --> 00:06:03.060
  • OF THIS LITTLE WORLD THAT I CAN CONTROL.
  • 00:06:03.090 --> 00:06:05.130
  • AND WE NEVER STEP OUT AND UP
  • 00:06:05.160 --> 00:06:07.090
  • AND INTO THE PURPOSE OF GOD FOR OUR OWN LIVES
  • 00:06:07.120 --> 00:06:10.140
  • BECAUSE FAITH IS ALL ABOUT RISK.
  • 00:06:10.170 --> 00:06:11.260
  • FAITH IS ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING THAT WE CAN'T DO
  • 00:06:11.290 --> 00:06:13.270
  • BECAUSE WE NEED GOD TO DO IT.
  • 00:06:14.000 --> 00:06:15.160
  • AND THE ENEMY, IF HE CAN'T TAKE OUR SOUL,
  • 00:06:15.190 --> 00:06:18.130
  • SO IF WE ARE SAVED, AND HE CAN'T GET US,
  • 00:06:18.160 --> 00:06:20.190
  • WHAT HE'S GONNA TRY TO DO IS MAKE US LIVE SAFE
  • 00:06:20.220 --> 00:06:23.010
  • SO THAT WE NEVER STEP OUT IN FAITH
  • 00:06:23.040 --> 00:06:24.180
  • AND DO WHAT GOD HAS CALLED US TO DO.
  • 00:06:24.210 --> 00:06:26.130
  • WITHOUT FAITH, THE SCRIPTURE SAYS,
  • 00:06:26.160 --> 00:06:27.220
  • IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD.
  • 00:06:27.250 --> 00:06:29.040
  • AND I WANNA PLEASE GOD, SO I WANNA LIVE A LIFE OF RISK,
  • 00:06:29.070 --> 00:06:31.270
  • AND I WANNA LIVE A LIFE OF FAITH.
  • 00:06:32.000 --> 00:06:33.260
  • IF YOU'RE GONNA MOVE FORWARD,
  • 00:06:33.290 --> 00:06:35.180
  • THEN YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO STEP OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE.
  • 00:06:35.210 --> 00:06:38.120
  • FOR SOME PEOPLE, ME EVEN STARTING LIKE THIS
  • 00:06:38.150 --> 00:06:40.100
  • IS MAKING YOU NERVOUS.
  • 00:06:40.130 --> 00:06:41.110
  • YOU'RE GOING, WHERE'S THE REMOTE CONTROL?
  • 00:06:41.140 --> 00:06:42.230
  • WHERE'S THE REMOTE CONTROL?
  • 00:06:42.260 --> 00:06:43.270
  • YOU'RE FREAKING OUT GOING,
  • 00:06:44.000 --> 00:06:45.070
  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN I'VE GOTTA LEAVE MY COMFORT ZONE?
  • 00:06:45.100 --> 00:06:47.020
  • BECAUSE FEAR PARALYZES US.
  • 00:06:47.050 --> 00:06:49.100
  • FEAR CRIPPLES US.
  • 00:06:49.130 --> 00:06:50.270
  • AND YOU KNOW IN THE WORLD TODAY
  • 00:06:51.000 --> 00:06:52.030
  • WITH WHAT'S HAPPENING ECONOMICALLY
  • 00:06:52.060 --> 00:06:53.120
  • AND POLITICALLY AND MORALLY, SOCIALLY,
  • 00:06:53.150 --> 00:06:55.030
  • PEOPLE ARE FREAKING OUT LEFT, RIGHT, AND CENTER.
  • 00:06:55.060 --> 00:06:57.220
  • AND WHAT THAT DOES IS CAUSES US TO PULL BACK.
  • 00:06:57.250 --> 00:07:01.090
  • BUT IN THIS SERIES, THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS,
  • 00:07:01.120 --> 00:07:03.200
  • I'M BELIEVING GOD THAT WE ARE GOING
  • 00:07:03.230 --> 00:07:05.270
  • TO NOT GIVE WAY TO FEAR ANY LONGER
  • 00:07:06.000 --> 00:07:07.220
  • BECAUSE GOD HAS NOT GIVEN US A SPIRIT OF FEAR
  • 00:07:07.250 --> 00:07:09.280
  • BUT OF LOVE, POWER, AND A SOUND MIND.
  • 00:07:10.010 --> 00:07:11.260
  • AND WE'RE GONNA STEP OUT IN FAITH
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:13.170
  • AND DO WHAT GOD HAS CALLED US TO DO.
  • 00:07:13.200 --> 00:07:16.010
  • BECAUSE THE TRUTH IS
  • 00:07:16.040 --> 00:07:18.060
  • EVEN IF YOU THINK I'M LIVING A NICE, SAFE, COMFORTABLE LIFE,
  • 00:07:18.090 --> 00:07:22.170
  • YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT JUST LIVING IS RISKY.
  • 00:07:22.200 --> 00:07:25.190
  • JUST BEING ALIVE, YOU CAN'T AVOID RISK IF YOU TRY.
  • 00:07:25.220 --> 00:07:29.270
  • WOVEN INTO THE VERY FABRIC OF OUR FINITE BEING
  • 00:07:30.000 --> 00:07:33.140
  • IS THIS WHOLE IDEA OF RISK BECAUSE WE'RE GONNA DIE ONE DAY.
  • 00:07:33.170 --> 00:07:37.130
  • ALL OF US ARE NO MATTER WHAT.
  • 00:07:37.160 --> 00:07:39.020
  • SO, NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS,
  • 00:07:39.050 --> 00:07:41.160
  • OUR BODY IS DYING FROM THE MOMENT THAT IT'S BORN.
  • 00:07:41.190 --> 00:07:44.040
  • SO, YOU CANNOT AVOID RISK.
  • 00:07:44.070 --> 00:07:46.110
  • LOOK, HOW MANY OF US COULD AVOID
  • 00:07:46.140 --> 00:07:48.180
  • A NATURAL DISASTER IF WE TRIED?
  • 00:07:48.210 --> 00:07:50.060
  • YOU CAN'T.
  • 00:07:50.090 --> 00:07:51.110
  • NO ONE CAN.
  • 00:07:51.140 --> 00:07:52.060
  • YOU SEE HURRICANES THAT HIT,
  • 00:07:52.090 --> 00:07:53.130
  • CYCLONES THAT HIT, TORNADOES THAT HIT.
  • 00:07:53.160 --> 00:07:55.140
  • YOU CAN GO AND HIDE IN YOUR BED AND PULL UP THE COVERS,
  • 00:07:55.170 --> 00:07:59.210
  • BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, IF THAT TORNADO'S GOING TO HIT,
  • 00:07:59.240 --> 00:08:01.180
  • IT'S GONNA HIT.
  • 00:08:01.210 --> 00:08:02.280
  • AND I THINK A LOT OF US, WE TRY TO LIVE OUR CHRISTIAN LIVES
  • 00:08:03.010 --> 00:08:05.040
  • LIKE WE'RE IN BED WITH THE COVERS.
  • 00:08:05.070 --> 00:08:06.230
  • AND IF WE DON'T KNOW IT'S GONNA HIT,
  • 00:08:06.260 --> 00:08:08.110
  • THEN IT'S NOT GONNA HIT US.
  • 00:08:08.140 --> 00:08:09.130
  • IT'S GONNA BYPASS US,
  • 00:08:09.160 --> 00:08:10.130
  • BUT THAT ISN'T EXACTLY THE CASE OF LIFE.
  • 00:08:10.160 --> 00:08:12.090
  • YOU CANNOT STOP ANY KIND OF NATURAL DISASTER.
  • 00:08:12.120 --> 00:08:15.190
  • YOU CANNOT CONTROL THE WEATHER.
  • 00:08:15.220 --> 00:08:17.140
  • WE CAN CONTROL A LOT LESS
  • 00:08:17.170 --> 00:08:18.270
  • THAN WE EVER THINK THAT WE CAN CONTROL.
  • 00:08:19.000 --> 00:08:21.020
  • MOST OF ALL, YOU CAN'T CONTROL OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:08:21.050 --> 00:08:22.200
  • I KNOW YOU THINK YOU CAN CONTROL YOUR SPOUSE,
  • 00:08:22.230 --> 00:08:24.110
  • BUT LET ME TELL YOU, YOU CAN BE MARRIED FOR 2 1/2 SECONDS,
  • 00:08:24.140 --> 00:08:27.080
  • AND YOU WILL REALIZE
  • 00:08:27.110 --> 00:08:28.150
  • THAT YOU CANNOT CONTROL ANYBODY BUT YOURSELF.
  • 00:08:28.180 --> 00:08:32.040
  • AND SO WHAT WE HAVE TO DO IS LEARN TO TAKE STEPS OF FAITH.
  • 00:08:32.070 --> 00:08:35.230
  • I WAS FLYING.
  • 00:08:35.260 --> 00:08:37.040
  • YOU KNOW, I FLY HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF MILES EVERY YEAR.
  • 00:08:37.070 --> 00:08:40.100
  • IT'S WHAT I DO.
  • 00:08:40.130 --> 00:08:41.050
  • I TRAVEL THE WORLD AND TEACH.
  • 00:08:41.080 --> 00:08:44.200
  • ONE DAY I WAS FLYING FROM CHICAGO
  • 00:08:44.230 --> 00:08:49.010
  • TO RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA.
  • 00:08:49.040 --> 00:08:50.240
  • AND I REMEMBER THAT THE PLANE TOOK OFF.
  • 00:08:50.270 --> 00:08:52.220
  • EVERYTHING SEEMS NORMAL.
  • 00:08:52.250 --> 00:08:53.220
  • I DO AT LEAST TWO OR THREE FLIGHTS A WEEK,
  • 00:08:53.250 --> 00:08:56.200
  • SO THIS IS VERY NORMAL FOR ME.
  • 00:08:56.230 --> 00:08:58.160
  • THE PLANE GOES UP ABOVE THE CLOUDS,
  • 00:08:58.190 --> 00:09:01.060
  • WHICH IS WHERE YOU KIND OF WANT THE PLANE TO BE, UP THERE.
  • 00:09:01.090 --> 00:09:04.010
  • AND THEN AFTER ABOUT FIVE MINUTES,
  • 00:09:04.040 --> 00:09:07.100
  • THE CAPTAIN COMES OVER THE LOUDSPEAKER,
  • 00:09:07.130 --> 00:09:09.150
  • AND HE SAYS LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THERE
  • 00:09:09.180 --> 00:09:14.140
  • TO WHICH I WAS THINKING I ACTUALLY WASN'T PANICKING
  • 00:09:14.170 --> 00:09:17.080
  • UNTIL YOU JUST MADE THAT ANNOUNCEMENT.
  • 00:09:17.110 --> 00:09:19.240
  • I WAS NOT PANICKING.
  • 00:09:19.270 --> 00:09:20.290
  • I WAS REALLY HAPPY DRINKING MY WATER WITH NO ICE.
  • 00:09:21.020 --> 00:09:23.210
  • AND SO AT THAT MOMENT, THIS IS WHAT HE SAID.
  • 00:09:23.240 --> 00:09:27.050
  • HE SAID WE ARE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE LANDING GEAR.
  • 00:09:27.080 --> 00:09:30.250
  • HE SAID WE CAN'T GET THE GEAR UP.
  • 00:09:30.280 --> 00:09:33.230
  • WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS STILL ATTACHED.
  • 00:09:33.260 --> 00:09:36.280
  • SO, WE'RE GONNA TURN AROUND AND TRY TO LAND IN CHICAGO.
  • 00:09:37.010 --> 00:09:42.010
  • NOW CAN I JUST TELL YOU AT 35.000 FEET,
  • 00:09:42.040 --> 00:09:44.090
  • THERE ARE CERTAIN WORDS YOU DO NOT WANT
  • 00:09:44.120 --> 00:09:46.170
  • IN THE SAME SENTENCE.
  • 00:09:46.200 --> 00:09:47.270
  • ONE OF THOSE IS TRY TO LAND, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:09:48.000 --> 00:09:50.190
  • IT'S LIKE LANDING WOULD BE NICE, NOT TRY.
  • 00:09:50.220 --> 00:09:52.270
  • WELL, LET ME JUST TELL YOU AT THAT MOMENT,
  • 00:09:53.000 --> 00:09:55.110
  • THE SPIRIT OF ATHEISM LEFT THE AIRPLANE.
  • 00:09:55.140 --> 00:09:57.280
  • IT REALLY DID. (AUDIENCE LAUGHS)
  • 00:09:58.010 --> 00:09:59.090
  • FROM THE BACK TO THE FRONT,
  • 00:09:59.120 --> 00:10:01.070
  • I COULD HEAR PEOPLE CRYING OUT BUDDHA,
  • 00:10:01.100 --> 00:10:03.110
  • MOHAMMAD, JESUS, MARY, THE DONKEY.
  • 00:10:03.140 --> 00:10:05.070
  • I MEAN, EVERYTHING.
  • 00:10:05.100 --> 00:10:06.120
  • EVERYONE WAS FREAKING OUT AT THAT MOMENT.
  • 00:10:06.150 --> 00:10:09.250
  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT I FOUND OUT THAT DAY?
  • 00:10:09.280 --> 00:10:12.170
  • FLYING IS RISKY.
  • 00:10:12.200 --> 00:10:15.070
  • I COULDN'T AVOID IT, SO WHAT DO I DO?
  • 00:10:15.100 --> 00:10:16.240
  • DO I NOT DO WHAT GOD HAS CALLED ME TO DO
  • 00:10:16.270 --> 00:10:18.100
  • BECAUSE FLYING IS RISKY?
  • 00:10:18.130 --> 00:10:20.120
  • YOU CANNOT AVOID RISK IF YOU TRIED.
  • 00:10:20.150 --> 00:10:25.090
  • - [ANNOUNCER] WE CAN ALL EXPERIENCE MOMENTS
  • 00:10:25.120 --> 00:10:26.230
  • WHEN LIFE TURNS US UPSIDE DOWN,
  • 00:10:26.260 --> 00:10:28.280
  • AND WE WONDER HOW THE FUTURE COULD EVER GET BETTER
  • 00:10:29.010 --> 00:10:31.280
  • WHEN THE MARRIAGE DIES, WHEN LOSS COMES UNEXPECTEDLY,
  • 00:10:32.010 --> 00:10:35.130
  • WHEN DREAMS SHATTER, WHEN PEOPLE DISAPPOINT YOU,
  • 00:10:35.160 --> 00:10:38.290
  • OR EVEN WHEN YOU DISAPPOINT YOURSELF.
  • 00:10:39.020 --> 00:10:41.220
  • ANY ONE OF THESE LET-DOWNS CAN LEAVE US FEELING DISCOURAGED
  • 00:10:41.250 --> 00:10:44.260
  • AND DISMAYED, WANTING TO WITHDRAW FROM LIFE
  • 00:10:44.290 --> 00:10:48.030
  • AND RETREAT FROM THE PLANS AND PURPOSES OF GOD.
  • 00:10:48.060 --> 00:10:51.170

  • WITH CHRIST JESUS, SO FEAR MUST GO.

  • SICKNESS MUST GO IN JESUS' NAME.
  • 00:12:00.030 --> 00:12:02.240
  • (UPBEAT ROCK MUSIC)
  • 00:12:02.270 --> 00:12:11.230
  • WE ARE CALLED.
  • 00:12:11.260 --> 00:12:12.280
  • WE ARE ANOINTED.
  • 00:12:13.010 --> 00:12:14.050
  • WE CAN DO ALL THINGS
  • 00:12:14.080 --> 00:12:15.270
  • THROUGH CHRIST JESUS WHO STRENGTHENS US.
  • 00:12:16.000 --> 00:12:17.290
  • WE ARE DAUGHTERS OF THE KING OF KINGS AND THE LORD OF LORDS.
  • 00:12:18.020 --> 00:12:23.250
  • - SO, 13 YEARS OLD, I FOUND OUT THAT MARRIAGE IS RISKY.
  • 00:12:23.280 --> 00:12:28.260
  • YOU CANNOT AVOID RISK IF YOU TRIED.
  • 00:12:28.290 --> 00:12:32.050
  • YOU CAN SHUT DOWN YOUR HEART.
  • 00:12:32.080 --> 00:12:33.150
  • YOU CAN SHUT DOWN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:12:33.180 --> 00:12:34.290
  • BUT WE LIVE IN A FALLEN AND A BROKEN WORLD.
  • 00:12:35.020 --> 00:12:38.070
  • AND RISK IS PART OF THAT.
  • 00:12:38.100 --> 00:12:39.130
  • WHEN I WAS 19 YEARS OLD, I WAS AT WORK,
  • 00:12:39.160 --> 00:12:42.230
  • AND MY NEIGHBORS CAME TO GET ME.
  • 00:12:42.260 --> 00:12:45.070
  • I WORKED ABOUT 15 MINUTES AWAY FROM MY HOME,
  • 00:12:45.100 --> 00:12:48.090
  • AND THEY CAME TO TELL ME THAT MY DAD
  • 00:12:48.120 --> 00:12:50.270
  • WHO HAD HAD CANCER BUT WAS IN REMISSION
  • 00:12:51.000 --> 00:12:53.170
  • HAD HAD A STROKE IN MY MOTHER'S ARMS AND HAD DIED.
  • 00:12:53.200 --> 00:12:57.120
  • AND I JUMPED IN MY CAR, DROVE TO MY MOM'S HOUSE,
  • 00:12:57.150 --> 00:13:01.070
  • CAME OUT THE FRONT.
  • 00:13:01.100 --> 00:13:02.070
  • THE AMBULANCE WAS THERE, THE SAME AMBULANCE
  • 00:13:02.100 --> 00:13:04.160
  • THAT MY BROTHER HAD COME OUT OF SCHOOL THAT DAY,
  • 00:13:04.190 --> 00:13:06.290
  • AND THERE WAS AN AMBULANCE.
  • 00:13:07.020 --> 00:13:08.050
  • AND HE ENDED UP FOLLOWING THAT AMBULANCE
  • 00:13:08.080 --> 00:13:10.110
  • IN THE CAR ALL THE WAY HOME TO OUR HOUSE
  • 00:13:10.140 --> 00:13:13.030
  • AND FIND OUT IT WAS HIS DAD THAT HAD DIED.
  • 00:13:13.060 --> 00:13:15.020
  • AND I WALKED IN, AND I WALKED INTO MY LOUNGE ROOM,
  • 00:13:15.050 --> 00:13:18.210
  • WATCHING MY MOM JUST A MESS AS YOU COULD IMAGINE
  • 00:13:18.240 --> 00:13:21.270
  • OVER MY DAD ON THE FLOOR.
  • 00:13:22.000 --> 00:13:24.010
  • AND IT WAS STRANGE AT 19 'CAUSE I COULD SEE MY DAD.
  • 00:13:24.040 --> 00:13:27.010
  • I COULD SMELL HIS AFTERSHAVE STILL.
  • 00:13:27.040 --> 00:13:30.060
  • I BENT DOWN TO KISS HIM.
  • 00:13:30.090 --> 00:13:33.190
  • I COULD FEEL STILL HE WAS WARM.
  • 00:13:33.220 --> 00:13:36.230
  • AND I COULD TASTE THE SWEAT.
  • 00:13:36.260 --> 00:13:38.120
  • SO, YOU KNOW, I COULD SEE, TASTE, TOUCH, SMELL, FEEL,
  • 00:13:38.150 --> 00:13:42.140
  • BUT SOMETHING WAS MISSING.
  • 00:13:42.170 --> 00:13:44.100
  • AND AT 19, I DISCOVERED IN A VERY REAL TACTILE, TANGIBLE WAY
  • 00:13:44.130 --> 00:13:49.120
  • THAT LIFE IS FINITE, THAT LIFE IS RISKY,
  • 00:13:49.150 --> 00:13:54.060
  • THAT LIVING IS RISKY,
  • 00:13:54.090 --> 00:13:56.140
  • THAT THERE IS NO WAY THAT YOU GET OUT OF LIFE ALIVE.
  • 00:13:56.170 --> 00:14:01.090
  • LIFE IS TERMINAL, AND LIFE IS RISKY.
  • 00:14:01.120 --> 00:14:04.070
  • SO YOU HAVE ONE OF TWO CHOICES.
  • 00:14:04.100 --> 00:14:06.100
  • YOU CAN EITHER LIVE THIS THING CALLED LIFE
  • 00:14:06.130 --> 00:14:09.010
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT GETTING OUT OF LIFE ALIVE.
  • 00:14:09.040 --> 00:14:11.120
  • IN THE WORDS OF GEORGE BERNARD SHAW,
  • 00:14:11.150 --> 00:14:12.260
  • HE SAID DEATH IS THE ULTIMATE STATISTIC.
  • 00:14:12.290 --> 00:14:14.210
  • ONE OUT OF ONE DIES.
  • 00:14:14.240 --> 00:14:15.230
  • I BET YOU ARE GLAD YOU TUNED IN TO TBN TODAY.
  • 00:14:15.260 --> 00:14:18.120
  • THE FACT IS THAT IT HAPPENS TO ALL OF US,
  • 00:14:18.150 --> 00:14:20.140
  • BUT HERE'S THE GOOD NEWS.
  • 00:14:20.170 --> 00:14:21.270
  • THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO DIE BEFORE YOU DEAD
  • 00:14:22.000 --> 00:14:23.170
  • BECAUSE THE THING THAT'S KILLING A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:14:23.200 --> 00:14:25.020
  • IS THIS UNUSED LIFE THAT THEY'RE CARRYING AROUND
  • 00:14:25.050 --> 00:14:27.080
  • ON THE INSIDE OF THEM.
  • 00:14:27.110 --> 00:14:28.220
  • WHAT WE WANT TO DO IS LIVE THIS PASSIONATE,
  • 00:14:28.250 --> 00:14:31.090
  • PURPOSE-DRIVEN LIFE THAT JESUS CHRIST DIED TO GIVE EACH
  • 00:14:31.120 --> 00:14:34.090
  • AND EVERY ONE OF US.
  • 00:14:34.120 --> 00:14:35.130
  • THE BOOK OF JAMES, CHAPTER FOUR, VERSE 13 AND 14,
  • 00:14:35.160 --> 00:14:39.190
  • JAMES WRITES THIS.
  • 00:14:39.220 --> 00:14:40.160
  • HE SAYS COME NOW, YOU WHO SAY TODAY
  • 00:14:40.190 --> 00:14:43.240
  • OR TOMORROW WE WILL GO INTO SUCH AND SUCH A TOWN
  • 00:14:43.270 --> 00:14:46.080
  • AND SPEND A YEAR THERE AND TRADE AND MAKE A PROFIT.
  • 00:14:46.110 --> 00:14:49.150
  • YET YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT TOMORROW WILL BRING.
  • 00:14:49.180 --> 00:14:52.230
  • DON'T YOU LAUGH AT ALL THOSE PEOPLE
  • 00:14:52.260 --> 00:14:54.250
  • THAT THINK I'M GONNA TELL YOU.
  • 00:14:54.280 --> 00:14:56.010
  • I'M GONNA PREDICT.
  • 00:14:56.040 --> 00:14:57.060
  • WE DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT WE'RE GONNA THINK TOMORROW
  • 00:14:57.090 --> 00:14:59.030
  • LET ALONE WHAT WALL STREET'S GONNA THINK.
  • 00:14:59.060 --> 00:15:00.190
  • YOU KNOW, I'M JUST LIKE, REALLY, REALLY?
  • 00:15:00.220 --> 00:15:02.210
  • EVERYONE'S JUST GOING I PREDICT THIS IS GONNA HAPPEN.
  • 00:15:02.240 --> 00:15:05.250
  • WELL, I FLEW DOWN TO DALLAS TO DO THIS RECORDING.
  • 00:15:05.280 --> 00:15:09.140
  • THEY PREDICTED THAT WE WERE GONNA HAVE RAIN
  • 00:15:09.170 --> 00:15:10.260
  • AND STORMS EVERY DAY,
  • 00:15:10.290 --> 00:15:12.040
  • AND WE'VE HAD BEAUTIFUL WEATHER
  • 00:15:12.070 --> 00:15:13.210
  • THE WHOLE TIME THAT I'VE BEEN HERE.
  • 00:15:13.240 --> 00:15:15.060
  • WE CAN'T EVEN PREDICT THE WEATHER RIGHT,
  • 00:15:15.090 --> 00:15:16.210
  • SO I DON'T KNOW HOW WE THINK
  • 00:15:16.240 --> 00:15:17.240
  • WE'RE GONNA PREDICT ANY OF THE FUTURE.
  • 00:15:17.270 --> 00:15:19.080
  • BUT HERE JAMES IS SAYING
  • 00:15:19.110 --> 00:15:21.070
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TOMORROW'S GONNA BRING.
  • 00:15:21.100 --> 00:15:22.250
  • WHAT IS YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:15:22.280 --> 00:15:25.200
  • FOR YOU ARE A MIST THAT APPEARS
  • 00:15:25.230 --> 00:15:28.280
  • FOR A LITTLE TIME AND THEN VANISHES.
  • 00:15:29.010 --> 00:15:32.110
  • THIS JUST CRACKS ME UP.
  • 00:15:32.140 --> 00:15:34.000
  • YOU KNOW, WE STRESS ABOUT SO MUCH STUFF,
  • 00:15:34.030 --> 00:15:37.070
  • AND LIFE IS BUT A VAPOR THE BIBLE SAYS LIKE THIS.
  • 00:15:37.100 --> 00:15:39.210
  • BUT IT'S JUST A VAPOR.
  • 00:15:39.240 --> 00:15:41.270
  • ALL THAT STRESS.
  • 00:15:42.000 --> 00:15:43.060
  • (GASPS) IS MY KID GONNA GET A 4.0?
  • 00:15:43.090 --> 00:15:45.010
  • VAPOR. (AUDIENCE LAUGHS)
  • 00:15:45.040 --> 00:15:47.070
  • YOU KNOW?
  • 00:15:47.100 --> 00:15:48.240
  • WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN WITH ALL THE STOCKS?
  • 00:15:48.270 --> 00:15:50.210
  • VAPOR.
  • 00:15:50.240 --> 00:15:52.030
  • (GASPS) WHO'S GONNA BE IN GOVERNMENT?
  • 00:15:52.060 --> 00:15:54.020
  • VAPOR.
  • 00:15:54.050 --> 00:15:55.050
  • ALL THE THINGS YOU'RE LOSING,
  • 00:15:55.080 --> 00:15:56.100
  • IS THAT GUY GONNA LIKE ME?
  • 00:15:56.130 --> 00:15:57.260
  • VAPOR, VAPOR, VAPOR. (CHRISTINE AND AUDIENCE LAUGH)
  • 00:15:57.290 --> 00:16:03.100
  • HONESTLY, SOME OF THE STUFF YOU KNOW,
  • 00:16:03.130 --> 00:16:05.250
  • IF I EAT THAT CHOCOLATE CAKE,
  • 00:16:05.280 --> 00:16:06.270
  • I'M GONNA PUT ON ANOTHER POUND.
  • 00:16:07.000 --> 00:16:08.040
  • VAPOR. (AUDIENCE LAUGHS)
  • 00:16:08.070 --> 00:16:10.190
  • WE LOSE SO MUCH SLEEP OVER WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN
  • 00:16:10.220 --> 00:16:14.140
  • AND WHAT ABOUT THIS AND WHAT ABOUT, AND GOD'S LIKE, VAPOR.
  • 00:16:14.170 --> 00:16:17.070
  • YOU'RE GONNA WASTE ALL YOUR VAPOR?
  • 00:16:17.100 --> 00:16:18.280
  • YOU ARE FREAKING OUT.
  • 00:16:19.010 --> 00:16:20.220
  • 99% OF WHAT YOU FREAK OUT ABOUT DOESN'T HAPPEN ANYWAY.
  • 00:16:20.250 --> 00:16:24.070
  • THAT'S THE BOTTOM LINE.
  • 00:16:24.100 --> 00:16:25.040
  • SOME OF YOU HAVE LOST SO MUCH SLEEP.
  • 00:16:25.070 --> 00:16:27.010
  • YOU HAVE STAYED UP,
  • 00:16:27.040 --> 00:16:28.020
  • AND YOU'VE WORKED OUT PLAN A,B,C,D,X,Y,X,
  • 00:16:28.050 --> 00:16:32.110
  • AND NOTHING HAS HAPPENED
  • 00:16:32.140 --> 00:16:33.130
  • THAT YOU THOUGHT IT WAS GONNA HAPPEN.
  • 00:16:33.160 --> 00:16:34.230
  • 99% OF THE STUFF THAT WE FREAK OUT OVER DOESN'T EVEN HAPPEN.
  • 00:16:34.260 --> 00:16:39.030
  • SOME OF YOU HAVE TUNED IN TODAY.
  • 00:16:39.060 --> 00:16:41.140
  • YOU HAVE BEEN SO STRESSED AND SO ANXIOUS AND SO WORRIED.
  • 00:16:41.170 --> 00:16:44.250
  • AND YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT WHAT IS GONNA HAPPEN TOMORROW.
  • 00:16:44.280 --> 00:16:46.280
  • WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN WITH THAT CHILD?
  • 00:16:47.010 --> 00:16:48.020
  • WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN WITH THIS RELATIONSHIP?
  • 00:16:48.050 --> 00:16:49.120
  • AM I EVER GONNA GET MARRIED?
  • 00:16:49.150 --> 00:16:51.290
  • YOU KNOW, IN LIGHT OF ETERNITY,
  • 00:16:52.020 --> 00:16:54.040
  • YOU HAVE TO KNOW THAT GOD IS IN CONTROL.
  • 00:16:54.070 --> 00:16:56.140
  • AND SO MUCH OF WHAT WE'RE STRESSING OUT ABOUT,
  • 00:16:56.170 --> 00:16:58.160
  • SOME OF THE THINGS LIKE, AM I GONNA HAVE A BIGGER HOUSE?
  • 00:16:58.190 --> 00:17:02.030
  • I NEED A BIGGER CAR.
  • 00:17:02.060 --> 00:17:02.290
  • WHAT ABOUT A BETTER JOB?
  • 00:17:03.020 --> 00:17:04.010
  • WHAT ABOUT POSITION?
  • 00:17:04.040 --> 00:17:05.050
  • THE BIBLE SAYS VAPOR.
  • 00:17:05.080 --> 00:17:07.070
  • YOU'RE FREAKING OUT OVER STUFF THAT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER.
  • 00:17:07.100 --> 00:17:12.250
  • SO YOUR KID DOESN'T CLEAN UP THEIR ROOM
  • 00:17:12.280 --> 00:17:15.100
  • OR PICK UP THEIR DIRTY UNDERWEAR.
  • 00:17:15.130 --> 00:17:16.280
  • VAPOR, VAPOR.
  • 00:17:17.010 --> 00:17:18.070
  • HONESTLY, IT IS NOT GONNA BE THE END OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:17:18.100 --> 00:17:20.280
  • SO WHAT, THEY DON'T WANNA EAT BROCCOLI,
  • 00:17:21.010 --> 00:17:22.220
  • AND THEY WANNA EAT MORE SPRINKLED SANDWICHES,
  • 00:17:22.250 --> 00:17:27.050
  • WHATEVER YOU CALL THOSE LITTLE THOUSAND,
  • 00:17:27.080 --> 00:17:28.190
  • HUNDRED AND THOUSAND SPRINKLES.
  • 00:17:28.220 --> 00:17:29.280
  • WHAT DO YOU CALL THEM?
  • 00:17:30.010 --> 00:17:30.230
  • FAIRY BREAD.
  • 00:17:30.260 --> 00:17:31.180
  • DO YOU HAVE FAIRY BREAD IN AMERICA?
  • 00:17:31.210 --> 00:17:33.020
  • I NEED TO EDUCATE THE AMERICANS, AH.
  • 00:17:33.050 --> 00:17:36.150
  • THIS IS LIKE UNBELIEVABLE.
  • 00:17:36.180 --> 00:17:38.000
  • WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:17:38.030 --> 00:17:39.060
  • LET'S GO 'CAUSE YOU'RE AMERICAN, PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY.
  • 00:17:39.090 --> 00:17:40.220
  • OKAY, SO YOU'RE LIKE MY KID, WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN
  • 00:17:40.250 --> 00:17:45.070
  • IF THEY EAT MORE PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY?
  • 00:17:45.100 --> 00:17:46.280
  • DON'T WORRY, VAPOR.
  • 00:17:47.010 --> 00:17:48.020
  • KNOCK YOURSELF OUT.
  • 00:17:48.050 --> 00:17:49.180
  • THIS SMELLS SO GOOD, I'M LOOKING FOR EXCUSES TO GO SPRAYING.
  • 00:17:49.210 --> 00:17:52.230
  • IT'S LIKE, AWESOME.
  • 00:17:52.260 --> 00:17:55.000
  • I WISH YOU COULD SMELL IT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SCREEN.
  • 00:17:55.030 --> 00:17:56.240
  • IT'S AWESOME.
  • 00:17:56.270 --> 00:17:58.260
  • BUT THE TRUTH IS, CAN I JUST SAY,
  • 00:17:58.290 --> 00:18:01.070
  • YOU KNOW, WHAT IF I TRY.
  • 00:18:01.100 --> 00:18:02.160
  • SOME OF YOU ARE LIKE, I DON'T WANNA STEP OUT IN FAITH
  • 00:18:02.190 --> 00:18:04.230
  • BECAUSE WHAT IF I FAIL?
  • 00:18:04.260 --> 00:18:06.000
  • VAPOR.
  • 00:18:06.030 --> 00:18:07.050
  • SO WHAT IF YOU DO?
  • 00:18:07.080 --> 00:18:08.230
  • BIG DEAL (GASPS).
  • 00:18:08.260 --> 00:18:09.280
  • WELL, YOU KNOW, I FEEL MAYBE THE LORD'S LEADING ME
  • 00:18:10.010 --> 00:18:12.050
  • TO TRY THIS, BUT WHAT, VAPOR.
  • 00:18:12.080 --> 00:18:14.170
  • - [AUDIENCE MEMBER] AH, THAT'S GOOD.
  • 00:18:14.200 --> 00:18:15.150
  • - VAPOR.
  • 00:18:15.180 --> 00:18:17.200
  • JUST A FEW MONTHS AGO, I STOOD AT MY MOTHER'S GRAVESIDE,
  • 00:18:17.230 --> 00:18:20.180
  • AND THEY BURIED HER RIGHT, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:18:20.210 --> 00:18:24.010
  • IN THE SAME GRAVESIDE WHERE MY DAD WAS.
  • 00:18:24.040 --> 00:18:26.250
  • AND IT WAS JUST LIKE, AS I WATCHED THAT COFFIN GO DOWN,
  • 00:18:26.280 --> 00:18:31.160
  • I SAID TO THE LORD, LORD, AM I DOING EVERYTHING
  • 00:18:31.190 --> 00:18:33.240
  • YOU'VE CALLED ME TO DO BECAUSE LIFE IS SO SHORT.
  • 00:18:33.270 --> 00:18:36.120
  • LIFE IS SO SHORT.
  • 00:18:36.150 --> 00:18:37.220
  • IT WAS 30 YEARS BEFORE THIS I WAS STANDING HERE FOR MY DAD.
  • 00:18:37.250 --> 00:18:41.040
  • NOW I'M STANDING HERE FOR MY MOM.
  • 00:18:41.070 --> 00:18:43.210
  • AND IF I LIVE LONG ENOUGH, ONE DAY, I'M GONNA DIE TOO.
  • 00:18:43.240 --> 00:18:46.010
  • THAT'S THE WAY IT JUST HAPPENS.
  • 00:18:46.040 --> 00:18:47.120
  • AND SO DON'T WASTE YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:18:47.150 --> 00:18:49.210
  • MOST OF US ARE DEAD BEFORE WE DIE,
  • 00:18:49.240 --> 00:18:51.150
  • AND THE THING THAT KILLS US IS ALL OF THIS UNUSED LIFE
  • 00:18:51.180 --> 00:18:54.080
  • THAT WE CARRY AROUND.
  • 00:18:54.110 --> 00:18:56.080
  • WE'RE SO BUSY TRYING TO STAY SAFE
  • 00:18:56.110 --> 00:18:58.270
  • THAT WE NEVER LIVE THE LIFE THAT JESUS PUT US
  • 00:18:59.000 --> 00:19:02.050
  • ON THIS EARTH TO LIVE.
  • 00:19:02.080 --> 00:19:04.080
  • AND SO I WANNA ENCOURAGE US TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:19:04.110 --> 00:19:07.010
  • THAT GOD APPOINTS THE TIMES
  • 00:19:07.040 --> 00:19:08.230
  • AND THE SEASONS IN WHICH WE ARE TO LIVE.
  • 00:19:08.260 --> 00:19:11.010
  • I WANT TO REMIND YOU,
  • 00:19:11.040 --> 00:19:12.100
  • AND I WANT YOU TO KNOW AT HOME RIGHT NOW
  • 00:19:12.130 --> 00:19:14.220
  • THAT GOD IS NOT FREAKING OUT OVER WHAT HAS HAPPENED
  • 00:19:14.250 --> 00:19:17.170
  • IN THE POLITICAL ELECTION PROCESS.
  • 00:19:17.200 --> 00:19:19.090
  • IT'S NOT THAT GOD IS IN HEAVEN GOING OMG,
  • 00:19:19.120 --> 00:19:21.150
  • O-M ME, WHATEVER YOU KNOW.
  • 00:19:21.180 --> 00:19:22.210
  • HE'S NOT FREAKING OUT, GOING I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:19:22.240 --> 00:19:26.270
  • I'M SO SURPRISED.
  • 00:19:27.000 --> 00:19:28.010
  • BARTHOLOMEW, WHY DIDN'T YOU WARN ME?
  • 00:19:28.040 --> 00:19:30.210
  • HE'S OKAY.
  • 00:19:30.240 --> 00:19:31.210
  • HE'S OKAY.
  • 00:19:31.240 --> 00:19:33.030
  • AND GOD ACTUALLY PUT YOU AND I ON THIS EARTH
  • 00:19:33.060 --> 00:19:36.230
  • AT THIS TIME TO BE SALT AND LIGHT
  • 00:19:36.260 --> 00:19:39.050
  • IN THE MIDST OF A BROKEN WORLD RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:19:39.080 --> 00:19:41.200
  • THE BIBLE SAYS IN THE BOOK OF ACTS CHAPTER 17, VERSE 26,
  • 00:19:41.230 --> 00:19:44.270
  • FROM ONE MAN HE MADE ALL THE NATIONS
  • 00:19:45.000 --> 00:19:47.080
  • THAT THEY SHOULD INHABIT THE WHOLE EARTH.
  • 00:19:47.110 --> 00:19:48.270
  • AND HE MARKED OUT THEIR APPOINTED TIMES IN HISTORY
  • 00:19:49.000 --> 00:19:52.170
  • AND THE BOUNDARIES OF THEIR LAND.
  • 00:19:52.200 --> 00:19:54.050
  • YOU'RE NOT HERE BY ACCIDENT.
  • 00:19:54.080 --> 00:19:55.180
  • GOD KNEW WHAT WOULD BE HAPPENING ECONOMICALLY,
  • 00:19:55.210 --> 00:19:57.260
  • POLITICALLY, MORALLY, SOCIALLY, ENVIRONMENTALLY.
  • 00:19:57.290 --> 00:20:00.280
  • GOD KNEW WHERE THE HOLE IN THE OZONE LAYER WOULD BE UP TO
  • 00:20:01.010 --> 00:20:03.290
  • WHEN HE DROPPED YOU ON PLANET EARTH.
  • 00:20:04.020 --> 00:20:05.280
  • YOU ARE NOT A PRODUCT OF TIME.
  • 00:20:06.010 --> 00:20:07.060
  • YOU'RE A PRODUCT OF ETERNITY.
  • 00:20:07.090 --> 00:20:08.110
  • YOU'VE BEEN PLUCKED OUT OF ETERNITY.
  • 00:20:08.140 --> 00:20:10.070
  • YOU HAVE BEEN POSITIONED IN TIME,
  • 00:20:10.100 --> 00:20:12.040
  • AND WE'VE BEEN GIVEN GIFTS AND TALENTS
  • 00:20:12.070 --> 00:20:13.230
  • FOR THE PURPOSE OF SERVING OUR GENERATION.
  • 00:20:13.260 --> 00:20:15.220
  • THIS IS NOT A TIME TO GO INTO HIDING.
  • 00:20:15.250 --> 00:20:18.070
  • YOU DO NOT HIDE SALT AND LIGHT.
  • 00:20:18.100 --> 00:20:20.250
  • YOU POUR IT OUT IN A LOST AND A BROKEN WORLD.
  • 00:20:20.280 --> 00:20:23.080
  • YOU ILLUMINATE THE DARKNESS,
  • 00:20:23.110 --> 00:20:24.260
  • AND YOU BRING HOPE AND LIFE AND LIBERTY
  • 00:20:24.290 --> 00:20:26.280
  • IN THE MIDST OF DARKNESS AND IN THE MIDST OF BROKENNESS.
  • 00:20:27.010 --> 00:20:30.120
  • WE WERE CALLED TO LIVE OUR LIFE OF RISK.
  • 00:20:30.150 --> 00:20:34.080
  • THAT'S WHAT FAITH IS.
  • 00:20:34.110 --> 00:20:35.250
  • EVERYTHING ABOUT FAITH IS RISK.
  • 00:20:35.280 --> 00:20:37.110
  • SO IF WITHOUT FAITH IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD,
  • 00:20:37.140 --> 00:20:39.250
  • YOU'VE GOTTA ASK YOURSELF ARE YOU LIVING IN FAITH?
  • 00:20:39.280 --> 00:20:42.020
  • OR IS YOUR CHRISTIANITY SO PREDICTABLE AND BORING,
  • 00:20:42.050 --> 00:20:45.090
  • I COULD SET MY WATCH BY IT?
  • 00:20:45.120 --> 00:20:46.250
  • I KNOW WHEN YOU GET UP, HOW YOU GO TO WORK,
  • 00:20:46.280 --> 00:20:48.210
  • WHAT YOU DO, WHAT YOU EAT, WHEN YOU EAT, HOW IT WORKS.
  • 00:20:48.240 --> 00:20:51.080
  • AND IF GOD DECIDED TO TURN UP AND INTERRUPT YOUR ROUTINE,
  • 00:20:51.110 --> 00:20:54.240
  • YOU WOULD BE OFFENDED
  • 00:20:54.270 --> 00:20:56.280
  • BECAUSE THAT'S HOW A LOT OF CHRISTIANS ARE.
  • 00:20:57.010 --> 00:20:58.220
  • AND SO IT'S LIKE HEIGH-HO, HEIGH-HO,
  • 00:20:58.250 --> 00:21:00.090
  • IT'S OFF TO CHURCH I GO, AND I LIVE A BORING CHRISTIAN LIFE.
  • 00:21:00.120 --> 00:21:03.250
  • AND THAT'S NEVER WHAT GOD CALLED US TO DO.
  • 00:21:03.280 --> 00:21:05.190
  • HE CALLED US TO TAKE RISKS OF FAITH AND A DARING ADVENTURE.
  • 00:21:05.220 --> 00:21:08.220
  • EPHESIANS 2:8-10, FOR BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED
  • 00:21:08.250 --> 00:21:13.040
  • THROUGH FAITH, I LOVE THIS,
  • 00:21:13.070 --> 00:21:14.110
  • AND THIS IS NOT YOUR OWN DOING.
  • 00:21:14.140 --> 00:21:16.100
  • IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD, NOT A RESULT OF WORKS
  • 00:21:16.130 --> 00:21:18.260
  • SO THAT NO ONE MAY BOAST.
  • 00:21:18.290 --> 00:21:20.200
  • FOR WE ARE, THIS IS PROBABLY MY FAVORITE VERSE IN THE BIBLE,
  • 00:21:20.230 --> 00:21:23.120
  • WE ARE HIS WORKMANSHIP, CREATED IN CHRIST JESUS
  • 00:21:23.150 --> 00:21:27.260
  • FOR GOOD WORKS, WHICH GOD PREPARED BEFOREHAND IN ETERNITY
  • 00:21:27.290 --> 00:21:31.290
  • THAT WE SHOULD WALK IN THEM.
  • 00:21:32.020 --> 00:21:33.090
  • WHERE?
  • 00:21:33.120 --> 00:21:34.040
  • HERE ON EARTH.
  • 00:21:34.070 --> 00:21:35.220
  • SO BEFORE WE EVER GOT HERE,
  • 00:21:35.250 --> 00:21:37.230
  • GOD PREPARED SOMETHING FOR US TO DO.
  • 00:21:37.260 --> 00:21:41.040
  • NOW WHEN YOU GO HOME TO HEAVEN, ARE YOU GONNA SAY GOD,
  • 00:21:41.070 --> 00:21:44.260
  • I DID WHAT YOU PUT ME ON THE EARTH TO DO?
  • 00:21:44.290 --> 00:21:46.200
  • WELL, GOD WHAT ON EARTH DID YOU PUT ME ON THE EARTH TO DO?
  • 00:21:46.230 --> 00:21:49.210
  • AND I THINK A WHOLE LOT MORE CHRISTIANS ARE GONNA BE,
  • 00:21:49.240 --> 00:21:51.140
  • WHAT ON EARTH WAS I DOING DOWN THERE?
  • 00:21:51.170 --> 00:21:53.010
  • AND GOD'S LIKE I WAS TRYING TO TELL YOU.
  • 00:21:53.040 --> 00:21:55.040
  • YOU WERE TOO BUSY FREAKING OUT.
  • 00:21:55.070 --> 00:21:56.160
  • YOU NEVER DID THE THING THAT I CALLED YOU TO DO.
  • 00:21:56.190 --> 00:21:58.200
  • YOU NEVER DID WHAT I PURPOSED FOR YOU TO DO.
  • 00:21:58.230 --> 00:22:02.010
  • NOW HERE IS THE DEAL.
  • 00:22:02.040 --> 00:22:03.010
  • GOD CREATED US ON PURPOSE FOR A PURPOSE,
  • 00:22:03.040 --> 00:22:05.010
  • AND NO DEMON IN HELL AND NO PERSON ON EARTH
  • 00:22:05.040 --> 00:22:06.250
  • CAN STOP THE PURPOSE OF GOD FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:22:06.280 --> 00:22:09.000
  • YOU MAY BEEN HURT OR VIOLATED OR ABUSED,
  • 00:22:09.030 --> 00:22:12.050
  • BUT I AM LIVING PROOF THAT THE DEVIL CAN COME AT YOU
  • 00:22:12.080 --> 00:22:14.230
  • AND TRY TO TAKE YOU OUT, BUT GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU
  • 00:22:14.260 --> 00:22:17.090
  • THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD,
  • 00:22:17.120 --> 00:22:18.220
  • AND GOD CAN REDEEM ALL THE BROKEN PIECES OF YOUR PAST
  • 00:22:18.250 --> 00:22:21.070
  • TO GIVE YOU AN AWESOME DESTINY AND AN AWESOME FUTURE.
  • 00:22:21.100 --> 00:22:24.080
  • NO ONE CAN STOP THE WORK OF GOD IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:22:24.110 --> 00:22:27.090
  • THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST GIVES US A LIFE BEYOND OUR PAST.
  • 00:22:27.120 --> 00:22:31.000
  • YOU MIGHT BE WATCHING THIS, AND YOU MAY HAVE BLOWN IT,
  • 00:22:31.030 --> 00:22:33.070
  • AND YOU MAY THINK I WOULD LOVE TO FULFILL THE PURPOSE
  • 00:22:33.100 --> 00:22:35.110
  • OF GOD, BUT CHRISTINE, YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT I'VE DONE.
  • 00:22:35.140 --> 00:22:37.080
  • AND YOU ARE EXACTLY RIGHT.
  • 00:22:37.110 --> 00:22:38.120
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'VE DONE,
  • 00:22:38.150 --> 00:22:39.130
  • BUT I KNOW WHAT HE DID 2.000 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:22:39.160 --> 00:22:41.170
  • AND MY BIBLE SAYS THAT IF WE CONFESS OUR SINS,
  • 00:22:41.200 --> 00:22:43.220
  • HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS
  • 00:22:43.250 --> 00:22:46.010
  • AND CLEANSE US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:22:46.040 --> 00:22:49.090
  • YOU CAN HAVE A LIFE BEYOND YOUR PAST.
  • 00:22:49.120 --> 00:22:51.230
  • YOUR HISTORY DOES NOT NEED TO DEFINE YOUR DESTINY.
  • 00:22:51.260 --> 00:22:54.150
  • YOU CAN STILL STEP INTO THE PURPOSE OF GOD.
  • 00:22:54.180 --> 00:22:57.070
  • IF YOU WOKE UP THIS MORNING,
  • 00:22:57.100 --> 00:22:58.130
  • AND THERE WAS NOT A WHITE CHALK MARK AROUND YOUR BODY,
  • 00:22:58.160 --> 00:23:00.270
  • IT MEANS YOU'RE ALIVE JUST IN CASE YOU'RE WONDERING
  • 00:23:01.000 --> 00:23:02.260
  • WHAT YOU'RE DOING HERE ON THE EARTH.
  • 00:23:02.290 --> 00:23:04.140
  • SO STOP PRAYING TO GO TO HEAVEN
  • 00:23:04.170 --> 00:23:05.210
  • 'CAUSE GOD DOESN'T WANT YOU YET.
  • 00:23:05.240 --> 00:23:06.260
  • YOU'VE GOT TOO MUCH TO DO HERE ON EARTH.
  • 00:23:06.290 --> 00:23:09.270
  • THE BIBLE TELLS US IN JOHN 15:8,
  • 00:23:10.000 --> 00:23:12.240
  • BY THIS MY FATHER IS GLORIFIED, THAT YOU BEAR MUCH FRUIT
  • 00:23:12.270 --> 00:23:18.080
  • AND PROVE TO BE MY DISCIPLES.
  • 00:23:18.110 --> 00:23:20.180
  • SO IF WE ARE GOING TO BEAR FRUIT,
  • 00:23:20.210 --> 00:23:23.150
  • WE HAVE GOTTA STEP OUT IN FAITH.
  • 00:23:23.180 --> 00:23:25.170
  • I WAS THE KID THAT WAS LEFT UNNAMED
  • 00:23:25.200 --> 00:23:27.130
  • AND UNWANTED, ABUSED, AND ADOPTED.
  • 00:23:27.160 --> 00:23:29.160
  • I COULD HAVE HAD EVERY EXCUSE
  • 00:23:29.190 --> 00:23:31.010
  • FOR NOT STEPPING OUT IN FAITH, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:23:31.040 --> 00:23:33.070
  • IT TOOK A STEP OF FAITH TO SAY
  • 00:23:33.100 --> 00:23:34.260
  • I AM NOT GONNA ALLOW MY HISTORY TO DEFINE MY DESTINY.
  • 00:23:34.290 --> 00:23:38.000
  • SO GOD, I'M GONNA USE ALL THE BROKEN PIECES
  • 00:23:38.030 --> 00:23:40.100
  • OF MY PAST TO GIVE OTHER PEOPLE A FUTURE.
  • 00:23:40.130 --> 00:23:42.080
  • IF I DID NOT TAKE A RISK, THERE WOULD BE NO PROPEL TODAY.
  • 00:23:42.110 --> 00:23:46.230
  • THERE WOULD BE NO A21 TODAY.
  • 00:23:46.260 --> 00:23:48.190
  • THERE WOULD BE NO EQUIP AND EMPOWER TV PROGRAM TODAY.
  • 00:23:48.220 --> 00:23:51.250
  • I WOULDN'T BE MARRIED TODAY.
  • 00:23:51.280 --> 00:23:53.080
  • I WOULDN'T HAVE CHILDREN TODAY.
  • 00:23:53.110 --> 00:23:55.020
  • EVERYTHING I'VE DONE INVOLVES RISK AND FAITH.
  • 00:23:55.050 --> 00:23:58.050
  • GOD HAS NOT CALLED US TO A SAFE LIFE.
  • 00:23:58.080 --> 00:24:00.180
  • HE'S CALLED US TO A LIFE OF FAITH AND RISK.
  • 00:24:00.210 --> 00:24:03.090
  • LET'S DETERMINE WE'RE GONNA TAKE A RISK
  • 00:24:03.120 --> 00:24:05.140
