  • HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS NOW ...
  • 00:09:54.080 --> 00:10:00.280
  • - WHEN YOU WERE GROWING UP CHRISTMAS WOULD HAVE
  • 00:10:01.000 --> 00:10:02.290
  • BEEN SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT.
  • 00:10:03.010 --> 00:10:04.010
  • START WITH SOMETHING BACK IN THE DAY.
  • 00:10:04.030 --> 00:10:06.010
  • - OH, MATT, I'M SORRY TO SAY THAT FOR ME MY FAMILY
  • 00:10:06.030 --> 00:10:08.110
  • SITUATION WAS MORE TYPICAL FOR PEOPLE TODAY.
  • 00:10:08.130 --> 00:10:10.190
  • I DIDN'T HAVE A FATHER.
  • 00:10:10.210 --> 00:10:13.050
  • DIDN'T HAVE A SETTLED SITUATION, BUT AS A
  • 00:10:13.070 --> 00:10:14.270
  • LITTLE CHILD I OBVIOUSLY LOOKED FORWARD TO
  • 00:10:14.290 --> 00:10:16.130
  • CHRISTMAS TIME BECAUSE I WAS IN A KIND OF POOR
  • 00:10:16.150 --> 00:10:19.170
  • SITUATION AND I'D GET SOME LITTLE GIFTS.
  • 00:10:19.190 --> 00:10:21.170
  • I WAS EXCITED LIKE A LITTLE KID.
  • 00:10:21.190 --> 00:10:24.070
  • THE ONE THING I DO REMEMBER IS THAT YOU
  • 00:10:24.090 --> 00:10:26.090
  • COULD TALK ABOUT JESUS.
  • 00:10:26.110 --> 00:10:27.200
  • YOU COULD SING THE CHRISTMAS CAROLS.
  • 00:10:27.220 --> 00:10:29.140
  • THERE DIDN'T SEEM TO BE THE PUSH BACK.
  • 00:10:29.160 --> 00:10:31.080
  • TODAY IT SEEMS LIKE THERE'S AN ALL-OUT
  • 00:10:31.100 --> 00:10:33.200
  • ASSAULT ON THE THINGS WE SHOULD CONSIDER MOST
  • 00:10:33.220 --> 00:10:35.130
  • PRECIOUS AND EVEN MORE SACRED.
  • 00:10:35.150 --> 00:10:37.040
  • AND I'M REALLY SADDENED THAT TODAY PEOPLE DON'T
  • 00:10:37.060 --> 00:10:41.270
  • SEEM TO SEE THAT.
  • 00:10:42.000 --> 00:10:43.080
  • AND I THINK THERE MUST BE AN AWAKENING TO WHAT
  • 00:10:43.100 --> 00:10:47.210
  • REALLY MATTERS IN LIFE, AND I THINK IT'S NOT
  • 00:10:47.230 --> 00:10:49.170
  • GOING TO BE BECAUSE WE DELIVER A RELIGIOUS
  • 00:10:49.190 --> 00:10:52.030
  • MESSAGE ABOUT CHRISTIANITY OR CHRISTMAS
  • 00:10:52.050 --> 00:10:56.050
  • BUT BECAUSE WE REVEAL A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE
  • 00:10:56.070 --> 00:10:59.000
  • CHRIST BORN ON CHRISTMAS WHO NOW BECAUSE OF HIS
  • 00:10:59.020 --> 00:11:02.160
  • SACRIFICIAL DEATH LIVES IN US.
  • 00:11:02.180 --> 00:11:04.110
  • AND WE HAVE A REASON TO REJOICE.
  • 00:11:04.130 --> 00:11:06.130
  • AND I THINK THE WHOLE WORLD REALLY IS WAITING
  • 00:11:06.150 --> 00:11:08.100
  • TO SEE MAYBE WHAT A FAMILY LOOKS LIKE, AND WE
  • 00:11:08.120 --> 00:11:11.000
  • CAN ACTUALLY TAKE THEM BACK NOT TO WHERE WE WERE
  • 00:11:11.020 --> 00:11:13.190
  • BUT PERHAPS WHERE THE FATHER REALLY WANTS US TO
  • 00:11:13.210 --> 00:11:17.040
  • BE BECAUSE OF THE BIRTH THAT WE CELEBRATE.
  • 00:11:17.060 --> 00:11:19.070
  • - BETTY?
  • 00:11:19.090 --> 00:11:20.150
  • - BETTY ROBISON: WELL, I CAME FROM A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:11:20.170 --> 00:11:22.110
  • DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:11:22.130 --> 00:11:23.220
  • MY FAMILY WASN'T WEALTHY OR ANYTHING, A FAMILY OF
  • 00:11:23.240 --> 00:11:26.080
  • FOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:11:26.100 --> 00:11:27.220
  • BUT MY DAD JUST WORKED HARD EVERY DAY, BUT OUR
  • 00:11:27.240 --> 00:11:31.000
  • CHRISTMASES WERE REALLY SPECIAL BECAUSE MY
  • 00:11:31.020 --> 00:11:32.280
  • YOUNGER SISTER AND I SHARED A LOT OF TOYS THAT
  • 00:11:33.000 --> 00:11:35.060
  • WE GOT FOR CHRISTMAS.
  • 00:11:35.080 --> 00:11:36.230
  • AND WE JUST THOUGHT THAT WAS REALLY REALLY NEAT.
  • 00:11:36.250 --> 00:11:39.100
  • AND THE EXCITEMENT OF IT, WE'D GET UP THE WEE HOURS
  • 00:11:39.120 --> 00:11:42.050
  • IN THE MORNING.
  • 00:11:42.070 --> 00:11:43.160
  • MOTHER WOULD SEND US BACK TO BED.
  • 00:11:43.180 --> 00:11:44.230
  • SHE'D A, YOU GO BACK TO BED.
  • 00:11:44.250 --> 00:11:45.270
  • IT'S NOT TIME TO GET UP.
  • 00:11:45.290 --> 00:11:47.070
  • WE JUST COULDN'T SLEEP AT ALL, BUT JUST THE
  • 00:11:47.090 --> 00:11:49.000
  • EXCITEMENT OF FAMILY, ALWAYS FAMILY, AND THAT
  • 00:11:49.020 --> 00:11:50.260
  • MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:11:50.280 --> 00:11:51.250
  • - O. S.?
  • 00:11:51.270 --> 00:11:53.090
  • - WELL, I WAS BORN IN 1947 SO I WAS A
  • 00:11:53.110 --> 00:11:58.270
  • LITTLE KID IN THE 50'S.
  • 00:11:58.290 --> 00:12:00.180
  • IT WAS AN INCREDIBLE TIME TO BE A LITTLE BOY.
  • 00:12:00.200 --> 00:12:03.050
  • OUR SOLDIERS JUST A FEW YEARS EARLIER HAD COME
  • 00:12:03.070 --> 00:12:06.290
  • HOME FROM THE GREAT WORLD WAR.
  • 00:12:07.010 --> 00:12:08.180
  • MY DAD WITH FOUGHT IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC AT GUAM,
  • 00:12:08.200 --> 00:12:11.180
  • AND OKINAWA.
  • 00:12:11.200 --> 00:12:12.240
  • THEY CAME BACK AND MARRIED THEIR HIGH SCHOOL
  • 00:12:12.260 --> 00:12:14.180
  • SWEETHEARTS AND BEGAN WHAT WE CALL A BIG BABY BOOM.
  • 00:12:14.200 --> 00:12:18.070
  • AND I WAS ON THE FRONT END OF THAT BABY BOOMER
  • 00:12:18.090 --> 00:12:20.220
  • SITUATION, SO IT WAS AN UNBELIEVABLE TIME.
  • 00:12:20.240 --> 00:12:23.190
  • WE WERE A THANKFUL AND A GRATEFUL PEOPLE.
  • 00:12:23.210 --> 00:12:27.040
  • IN MY PUBLIC SCHOOL THERE IN FORTH WORTH WE HEARD
  • 00:12:27.060 --> 00:12:29.200
  • THE BIBLE READ EVERY MORNING AND PRAYER GIVEN
  • 00:12:29.220 --> 00:12:33.070
  • OVER THE INTERCOM.
  • 00:12:33.090 --> 00:12:34.290
  • A GROUP CALLED THE GIDEONS WOULD COME AND
  • 00:12:35.010 --> 00:12:36.230
  • HAND US A NEW TESTAMENT IN THE SCHOOL EVERY YEAR.
  • 00:12:36.250 --> 00:12:40.030
  • AND IT WAS JUST A BEAUTIFUL TIME OF AN
  • 00:12:40.050 --> 00:12:41.250
  • ETHIC WHERE PEOPLE WERE SO GRATEFUL AND SO
  • 00:12:41.270 --> 00:12:44.220
  • THANKFUL, SO IT WAS A TIME THAT'S MUCH UNLIKE
  • 00:12:44.240 --> 00:12:49.140
  • THE CULTURE IN WHICH WE SEE TODAY.
  • 00:12:49.160 --> 00:12:52.000
  • - SUSIE?
  • 00:12:52.020 --> 00:12:53.120
  • - WELL, I GREW UP IN A TRADITIONAL FAMILY AS
  • 00:12:53.140 --> 00:12:55.230
  • WELL, IN CHURCH.
  • 00:12:55.250 --> 00:12:58.260
  • AND CHRISTIANS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FAMILY.
  • 00:12:58.280 --> 00:13:01.130
  • BUT WE CELEBRATED CHRISTMAS THE EXACT SAME
  • 00:13:01.150 --> 00:13:03.150
  • WAY EVERY YEAR.
  • 00:13:03.170 --> 00:13:04.270
  • AND AFTER WE WENT TO ONE GRANDMOTHER'S HOUSE
  • 00:13:04.290 --> 00:13:08.000
  • CHRISTMAS EVE, OPENED THE PRESENTS, THEN THE NEXT
  • 00:13:08.020 --> 00:13:10.100
  • GRANDMOTHER'S HOUSE, EVERYTHING THE EXACT
  • 00:13:10.120 --> 00:13:12.030
  • SAME WAY.
  • 00:13:12.050 --> 00:13:13.100
  • AND THE FIRST YEAR I GUESS WHEN WE GOT MARRIED
  • 00:13:13.120 --> 00:13:16.020
  • AND WE DID OUR OWN THING WHATEVER IT WAS WITH HIS
  • 00:13:16.040 --> 00:13:19.230
  • FAMILY, I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF.
  • 00:13:19.250 --> 00:13:21.260
  • THIS WAS NEVER THIS WAY, AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO
  • 00:13:21.280 --> 00:13:25.260
  • DO WITH MYSELF NOT HAVING THAT SAME CHRISTMAS.
  • 00:13:25.280 --> 00:13:28.160
  • AND SINCE THEN WE'VE HAD A LOT OF
  • 00:13:28.180 --> 00:13:30.060
  • DIFFERENT CHRISTMASES.
  • 00:13:30.080 --> 00:13:32.020
  • - THAT WAS REALLY OUR FIRST FIGHT.
  • 00:13:32.040 --> 00:13:33.280
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:13:34.000 --> 00:13:35.230
  • - NO.
  • 00:13:35.250 --> 00:13:36.260
  • - BECAUSE I LIKE CHRISTMAS ON CHRISTMAS
  • 00:13:36.280 --> 00:13:38.030
  • EVE AND YOU WANTED TO DO IT CHRISTMAS MORNING.
  • 00:13:38.050 --> 00:13:39.000
  • - YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:13:39.020 --> 00:13:40.240
  • - NOW WE'RE GETTING SOMEWHERE.
  • 00:13:40.260 --> 00:13:42.110
  • - WE OPEN GIFTS CHRISTMAS MORNING, AND I
  • 00:13:42.130 --> 00:13:43.160
  • DON'T WANT TO HEAR ANYMORE ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:13:43.180 --> 00:13:45.110
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:13:45.130 --> 00:13:46.220
  • - THE MAN IS TRYING TO HAVE A CHRISTMAS SHOW HERE.
  • 00:13:46.240 --> 00:13:48.070
  • STOP IT.
  • 00:13:48.090 --> 00:13:49.130

  • PUT MY NAME ON IT, BUT IT'S ABOUT US
  • 00:15:14.020 --> 00:15:16.240
  • UNDERSTANDING THE GIFT THAT WAS GIVEN TO US THAT
  • 00:15:16.260 --> 00:15:18.210
  • WE COULD NEVER PAY FOR, THE GIFT OF HOPE AND
  • 00:15:18.230 --> 00:15:20.150
  • SALVATION AND GRACE FOUND IN JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:15:20.170 --> 00:15:23.280
  • AND AS I GET OLDER, THAT'S THE THING THAT
  • 00:15:24.000 --> 00:15:26.030
  • STICKS OUT TO ME.
  • 00:15:26.050 --> 00:15:27.200
  • WHAT A MAGNIFICENT GIFT THE FATHER HAS GIVEN US
  • 00:15:27.220 --> 00:15:30.160
  • IN HIS SON, THAT HE DID NOT LEAVE US TO OUR OWN
  • 00:15:30.180 --> 00:15:34.090
  • DEVICES GROPING AROUND IN DARKNESS TRYING TO
  • 00:15:34.110 --> 00:15:37.030
  • FULFILL THE LAW WHICH WILL NEVER WORK.
  • 00:15:37.050 --> 00:15:40.050
  • THE LAW CAN NEVER SAVE YOU.
  • 00:15:40.070 --> 00:15:41.040
  • IT CAN ONLY FRUSTRATE YOU.
  • 00:15:41.060 --> 00:15:42.110
  • SO HERE COMES GRACE IN THE FORM OF A BABY.
  • 00:15:42.130 --> 00:15:44.110

  • HIS NAME IS JESUS.
  • 00:15:48.250 --> 00:15:50.130
  • SO THAT'S WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT AND I THINK
  • 00:15:50.150 --> 00:15:52.180
  • THAT'S WHAT WE'RE ALL GOING TO CELEBRATE
  • 00:15:52.200 --> 00:15:53.240
  • HERE TODAY.
  • 00:15:53.260 --> 00:15:55.020
  • - BACK TO THE THEME SONG JUST FOR A SECOND.

  • IT'S A TBN CHRISTMAS ...
  • 00:15:56.200 --> 00:15:58.260
  • A TBN CHRISTMAS ...
  • 00:15:58.280 --> 00:16:01.290
  • I MADE UP THE SONG SO I DON'T REMEMBER THE WORDS ...
  • 00:16:02.010 --> 00:16:06.150
  • BACK TO YOU.
  • 00:16:06.170 --> 00:16:07.270
  • - LET'S START WITH JUST KIND OF FIRST OF ALL, THE
  • 00:16:07.290 --> 00:16:10.220
  • FAMILY TRADITIONS IN THE OSTEEN FAMILY.
  • 00:16:10.240 --> 00:16:13.050
  • AND THEN YOU KNOW, JUST SOMETHING THAT YOU WANT
  • 00:16:13.070 --> 00:16:16.170
  • TO TALK TO THE AUDIENCE ABOUT CHRISTMAS.
  • 00:16:16.190 --> 00:16:18.130
  • - YOU KNOW, MATT, I GREW UP AS MOST PEOPLE KNOW AS
  • 00:16:18.150 --> 00:16:20.010
  • A PREACHER'S SON.
  • 00:16:20.030 --> 00:16:21.280
  • THERE WERE FIVE OF US IN THE HOME SO WE WERE
  • 00:16:22.000 --> 00:16:23.230
  • PRETTY TRADITIONAL.
  • 00:16:23.250 --> 00:16:25.010
  • CAME FROM A MIDDLE CLASS FAMILY, AND WE SLEPT IN
  • 00:16:25.030 --> 00:16:29.280
  • THE DEN ALL CHRISTMAS EVE NIGHT AND LIKE WE SAID
  • 00:16:30.000 --> 00:16:33.070
  • EARLIER WE'D GET UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
  • 00:16:33.090 --> 00:16:35.010
  • MANY TIMES, BUT THERE WAS A LOT OF LOVE IN
  • 00:16:35.030 --> 00:16:37.150
  • MY FAMILY.
  • 00:16:37.170 --> 00:16:39.010
  • I THINK ONE THING I CAN THINK ABOUT ONE THING I
  • 00:16:39.030 --> 00:16:42.290
  • SAW IN MY PARENTS IS THAT THEY WERE THE SAME IN THE
  • 00:16:43.010 --> 00:16:45.110
  • PULPIT AS THEY WERE AT HOME.
  • 00:16:45.130 --> 00:16:47.160
  • SO A LOT OF TIMES WE SEE SOME PREACHERS KIDS ARE
  • 00:16:47.180 --> 00:16:51.040
  • SOME OF THE WILDEST ONES AROUND, BUT I THANK THE
  • 00:16:51.060 --> 00:16:53.140
  • LORD THAT I HAVE A GREAT HERITAGE, GREW UP WITH A
  • 00:16:53.160 --> 00:16:55.290
  • LOT OF LOVE AND FAMILY AND JUST CONTINUE TO TRY
  • 00:16:56.010 --> 00:16:59.110
  • TO SHOW THAT TO OUR CHILDREN AS WELL TODAY.
  • 00:16:59.130 --> 00:17:01.070
  • - VICTORIA?
  • 00:17:01.090 --> 00:17:02.210
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:17:02.230 --> 00:17:03.220
  • I THINK THAT'S SO GOOD.
  • 00:17:03.240 --> 00:17:05.060
  • AND I THINK ALL OF US HERE ARE VOICING IN THE
  • 00:17:05.080 --> 00:17:08.100
  • FACT THAT WE REALIZE THAT FAMILY IS WHERE IT ALL
  • 00:17:08.120 --> 00:17:10.280
  • STARTED, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:17:11.000 --> 00:17:12.230
  • AND THAT'S WHAT CHRIST DID.
  • 00:17:12.250 --> 00:17:14.070
  • HE STARTED AND HE WANTS US ALL PART OF A FAMILY.
  • 00:17:14.090 --> 00:17:16.250
  • AND I THINK THAT'S THE THEME OF WHAT
  • 00:17:16.270 --> 00:17:18.270
  • I'M HEARING.
  • 00:17:18.290 --> 00:17:20.110
  • AND I'M LIKE JOEL, I GREW UP IN AN AMAZING FAMILY.
  • 00:17:20.130 --> 00:17:22.090
  • I JUST HAVE A BROTHER, BUT WE HAD COUSINS AROUND
  • 00:17:22.110 --> 00:17:26.040
  • US WE'D VISIT EVERY CHRISTMAS.
  • 00:17:26.060 --> 00:17:28.000
  • THAT WAS THE HIGHLIGHT OF OUR CHRISTMAS TO BE WITH
  • 00:17:28.020 --> 00:17:30.200
  • OUR COUSINS AND TO HAVE FUN.
  • 00:17:30.220 --> 00:17:32.050
  • AND JUST TO SLEEP AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE AND DO
  • 00:17:32.070 --> 00:17:35.180
  • ALL THE TRADITIONAL THINGS THAT I'M BELIEVING
  • 00:17:35.200 --> 00:17:38.260
  • THAT FAMILIES ARE STILL DOING TODAY.
  • 00:17:38.280 --> 00:17:41.010
  • BUT I THINK THAT IT STARTS SOMEWHERE, AND I
  • 00:17:41.030 --> 00:17:44.080
  • THINK IT STARTS IN THE HOME.
  • 00:17:44.100 --> 00:17:45.200
  • AND I KNOW THERE'S MANY PEOPLE OUT HERE THAT
  • 00:17:45.220 --> 00:17:48.020
  • WOULD SAY I WANT THIS.
  • 00:17:48.040 --> 00:17:51.070
  • I WANT THIS FAMILY IN MY HOME.
  • 00:17:51.090 --> 00:17:52.230
  • AND THAT'S WHY I LOVE BEING ABLE TO SAY IT
  • 00:17:52.250 --> 00:17:55.040
  • STARTS IN THE HOME AND IT STARTS WITH THE FAMILY
  • 00:17:55.060 --> 00:17:57.130
  • BECAUSE WE NEED VISION.
  • 00:17:57.150 --> 00:17:59.000
  • WE STILL NEED STRONG FAMILIES.
  • 00:17:59.020 --> 00:18:01.040
  • WE NEED TO SAY THAT HEY, STRONG FAMILIES IS
  • 00:18:01.060 --> 00:18:04.070
  • WHERE IT'S AT.
  • 00:18:04.090 --> 00:18:06.010
  • - THE IDEA THAT SOMEBODY TUNES IN, CERTAINLY
  • 00:18:06.030 --> 00:18:10.100
  • IT'S BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:18:10.120 --> 00:18:11.250
  • JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING IS BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:18:11.270 --> 00:18:14.120
  • THIS IS NOT A SET OR A GREEN SCREEN.
  • 00:18:14.140 --> 00:18:17.110
  • THAT'S A REAL FIRE.
  • 00:18:17.130 --> 00:18:19.130
  • IT WOULD REALLY BURN YOU, SO BETH, DON'T.
  • 00:18:19.150 --> 00:18:21.170
  • IT'S REAL.
  • 00:18:21.190 --> 00:18:22.260
  • [LAUGHTER] SO YOU KNOW, WE CERTAINLY HAVE HANDLED
  • 00:18:22.280 --> 00:18:28.160
  • KIND OF THE BEAUTIFUL SIDE OF THINGS.
  • 00:18:28.180 --> 00:18:31.280
  • WE'VE GONE RIGHT INTO GOD'S NATURE AND GOD'S
  • 00:18:32.000 --> 00:18:35.020
  • NATURE SPEAKS OF HIM, BUT DON'T LEAVE THIS BENCH
  • 00:18:35.040 --> 00:18:41.180
  • WITHOUT SAYING SOMETHING TO SOMEBODY TUNING IN
  • 00:18:41.200 --> 00:18:46.210
  • THAT THEY NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CHRISTMAS THAT THEY
  • 00:18:46.230 --> 00:18:48.190
  • MAY NOT KNOW.
  • 00:18:48.210 --> 00:18:50.110
  • SO I WANT TO GO TO YOU AGAIN AND JUST, WHAT'S
  • 00:18:50.130 --> 00:18:51.270
  • THE MEANINGFUL THING ABOUT CHRISTMAS THAT YOU

  • WANT TO SHARE?
  • 00:18:53.220 --> 00:18:55.070
  • - WELL, WHAT WOULD BRING A 72 YEAR OLD EVANGELIST
  • 00:18:55.090 --> 00:18:58.220
  • WHO HAS PREACHED FOR 54 YEARS, 70 COUNTRIES
  • 00:18:58.240 --> 00:19:02.030
  • OF THE WORLD AND TRAVELED TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH
  • 00:19:02.050 --> 00:19:04.190
  • TO TRY TO RESCUE THE PERISHING, THE STARVING,
  • 00:19:04.210 --> 00:19:07.290
  • THE THIRSTY? I'M NOT LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO GO
  • 00:19:08.010 --> 00:19:10.190
  • I DON'T CARE HOW PRETTY IT IS.
  • 00:19:10.210 --> 00:19:12.010
  • I CAME UP HERE BECAUSE I LOVE YOU, MATT, AND I
  • 00:19:12.030 --> 00:19:15.120
  • LOVE YOU, LAURIE.
  • 00:19:15.140 --> 00:19:16.170
  • - THANK YOU.
  • 00:19:16.190 --> 00:19:18.130
  • - AND I LOVE THE GOLDEN PURPOSE OF TBN, AND THAT
  • 00:19:18.150 --> 00:19:21.190
  • WAS TO TAKE THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST TO THE ENDS
  • 00:19:21.210 --> 00:19:24.030
  • OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:19:24.050 --> 00:19:25.130
  • AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT YOUR DAD DID THAT
  • 00:19:25.150 --> 00:19:27.270
  • WAS VERY VERY SIGNIFICANT KNOWING ME AS A BAPTIST
  • 00:19:27.290 --> 00:19:30.170
  • EVANGELIST AND STRAIGHT SHOOTING GUY, HE CAME TO
  • 00:19:30.190 --> 00:19:34.110
  • ME YEARS AGO, AND HE SAID JAMES, WE'RE KIND OF A
  • 00:19:34.130 --> 00:19:36.120
  • PENTECOSTAL NETWORK.
  • 00:19:36.140 --> 00:19:38.130
  • WOULD YOU BRING THE EVANGELICALS AND THE MAIN
  • 00:19:38.150 --> 00:19:41.160
  • LINE GROUPS IN?
  • 00:19:41.180 --> 00:19:43.050
  • WOULD YOU ASK JERRY FALWELL AND CHARLES
  • 00:19:43.070 --> 00:19:45.230
  • STANLEY AND ADRIAN ROGERS AND ED YOUNG, WOULD YOU
  • 00:19:45.250 --> 00:19:49.230
  • ASK THESE MEN TO COME ON?
  • 00:19:49.250 --> 00:19:51.160
  • I'M PUTTING YOU ON.
  • 00:19:51.180 --> 00:19:52.270
  • AND HE PUT ME ON IMMEDIATELY.
  • 00:19:52.290 --> 00:19:54.200
  • AND I THOUGHT THAT SPIRIT OF WANTING TO BRING THE
  • 00:19:54.220 --> 00:19:57.160
  • CHURCH TOGETHER TO LOOK LIKE A FAMILY -- I MEAN, I
  • 00:19:57.180 --> 00:20:00.240
  • THINK THE FATHER IS PRETTY BIG ON FAMILY, SO
  • 00:20:00.260 --> 00:20:03.050
  • I CAME FIRST OF ALL BECAUSE FAMILY IS HERE,
  • 00:20:03.070 --> 00:20:05.290
  • PEOPLE I REALLY RESPECT AND LOVE AND APPRECIATE
  • 00:20:06.010 --> 00:20:09.080
  • BECAUSE YOU TOO LOVE THE FATHER AND THE FAMILY.
  • 00:20:09.100 --> 00:20:11.270
  • AND SO WE CAME UP HERE TO TRY TO SHARE THIS BIRTH
  • 00:20:11.290 --> 00:20:16.080
  • OF JESUS WAS A GIFT OF LIFE.
  • 00:20:16.100 --> 00:20:19.190
  • AND IT WAS LIFE THAT REALLY WAS FOUND IN THE
  • 00:20:19.210 --> 00:20:22.100
  • SACRIFICIAL DEATH OF THE PERFECT LAMB.
  • 00:20:22.120 --> 00:20:25.250
  • AND IT WAS FOR EVERYONE.
  • 00:20:25.270 --> 00:20:28.000
  • JESUS DIDN'T JUST DIE FOR THIS GROUP, AND WE REALLY
  • 00:20:28.020 --> 00:20:30.120
  • ARE A FAMILY.
  • 00:20:30.140 --> 00:20:31.180
  • WE'RE HAPPY, BUT HE GAVE HIS LIFE FOR YOU, AND HE
  • 00:20:31.200 --> 00:20:36.110
  • WAS ACTUALLY BORN TO SHOW US LIFE AND REVEAL THE
  • 00:20:36.130 --> 00:20:38.260
  • FATHER AND THEN PROVIDE THE WAY OF LIFE AND
  • 00:20:38.280 --> 00:20:42.220
  • REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS DEATH.
  • 00:20:42.240 --> 00:20:45.010
  • AND HE'S ALIVE.
  • 00:20:45.030 --> 00:20:46.100
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:20:46.120 --> 00:20:50.250
  • - TRADITIONAL FAMILIES ARE WATCHING, BETH MOORE.
  • 00:20:50.270 --> 00:20:54.180
  • AND SOME THAT GREW UP IN NON TRADITIONAL FAMILIES.
  • 00:20:54.200 --> 00:20:58.040
  • WHERE'S YOUR STORY COME FROM?
  • 00:20:58.060 --> 00:21:01.110
  • - I HOPE THAT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO WATCH
  • 00:21:01.130 --> 00:21:03.190
  • FOR THE LAST LITTLE WHILE SO THEY'VE HEARD SOME OF
  • 00:21:03.210 --> 00:21:05.200
  • THESE STORIES BECAUSE I'M HOPING, MATT AND LAURIE,
  • 00:21:05.220 --> 00:21:07.200
  • THAT WE HAVE REPRESENTED A LOT OF DIFFERENT PEOPLE
  • 00:21:07.220 --> 00:21:09.140
  • AND A LOT OF DIFFERENT HOMES AS DIFFERENT AS
  • 00:21:09.160 --> 00:21:12.250
  • THEY MAY BE BECAUSE MY STORY IS SIMILAR TO
  • 00:21:12.270 --> 00:21:14.150
  • JAMES'S STORY IN THAT I COME FROM A VERY VERY
  • 00:21:14.170 --> 00:21:17.100
  • TROUBLED HOME.
  • 00:21:17.120 --> 00:21:18.230
  • MY SAVING GRACE TRULY WAS THAT I WAS RAISED
  • 00:21:18.250 --> 00:21:21.180
  • IN CHURCH.
  • 00:21:21.200 --> 00:21:22.270
  • NOW, BEHIND THE CLOSED DOORS OF OUR HOME WE HAD
  • 00:21:22.290 --> 00:21:26.050
  • A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF BROKENNESS AND A
  • 00:21:26.070 --> 00:21:28.020
  • TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF SECRECY, THINGS THAT WERE
  • 00:21:28.040 --> 00:21:31.070
  • GOING ON THAT NOBODY KNEW ABOUT AND THAT WE
  • 00:21:31.090 --> 00:21:33.020
  • COULDN'T TELL AND DID NOT TELL FOR MANY YEARS SOME
  • 00:21:33.040 --> 00:21:35.270
  • OF WHICH WE STILL HAVE NEVER TOLD.
  • 00:21:35.290 --> 00:21:38.120
  • BUT A LOT TO CONFUSE A KID GROWING UP IN A HOME
  • 00:21:38.140 --> 00:21:45.140
  • WHERE YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO RESPECT AUTHORITY THAT IS
  • 00:21:45.160 --> 00:21:49.230
  • MEANT TO BE A REPRESENTATION OF WHAT
  • 00:21:49.250 --> 00:21:52.200
  • GOD WOULD BE LIKE AS FATHER OR AS AUTHORITY IN
  • 00:21:52.220 --> 00:21:56.260
  • YOUR FAMILY, AND YET EVERYTHING SEEMS ASKEW.
  • 00:21:56.280 --> 00:21:59.080
  • I WAS RAISED IN A THREE GENERATION HOME WITH A
  • 00:21:59.100 --> 00:22:03.170
  • WIDE WIDE STRETCH BETWEEN SIBLINGS.
  • 00:22:03.190 --> 00:22:06.110
  • SO MY GRANDMOTHER LIVED WITH US, MY MATERNAL
  • 00:22:06.130 --> 00:22:08.280
  • GRANDMOTHER, AND BOTH MY PARENTS AND ALL MY
  • 00:22:09.000 --> 00:22:11.150
  • SIBLINGS AND I.
  • 00:22:11.170 --> 00:22:13.080
  • SO IT MAKES FOR A WHOLE DIFFERENT KIND OF AN
  • 00:22:13.100 --> 00:22:16.160
  • ELEMENT AND AN ATMOSPHERE WHEN IT'S A THREE
  • 00:22:16.180 --> 00:22:20.060
  • GENERATION HOME SPECIALLY WHEN IT'S LITTLE BITTY
  • 00:22:20.080 --> 00:22:22.110
  • ALL THE WAY TO MY GRANDMOTHER BEING IN HER
  • 00:22:22.130 --> 00:22:25.160
  • 70'S, THEN 80'S, AND THEN LATE 80'S WHEN SHE
  • 00:22:25.180 --> 00:22:29.020
  • PASSED AWAY.
  • 00:22:29.040 --> 00:22:30.170
  • BUT MY GRANDMOTHER WAS NOT A FAN OF CHRISTMAS AT
  • 00:22:30.190 --> 00:22:33.230
  • ALL, AT ALL.
  • 00:22:33.250 --> 00:22:35.230
  • SHE WAS BORN IN THE LATE 1880'S, AND IN THOSE
  • 00:22:35.250 --> 00:22:38.290
  • DAYS WHERE SHE LIVED IN THE HILLS OF ARKANSAS,
  • 00:22:39.010 --> 00:22:42.170
  • SHE WENT TO A LITTLE SCHOOLHOUSE WHERE
  • 00:22:42.190 --> 00:22:44.110
  • EVERYBODY, DIDN'T MATTER HOW OLD YOU WERE, IF YOU
  • 00:22:44.130 --> 00:22:47.020
  • WERE UNDER 18 YOU WENT TO THIS ONE LITTLE HOUSE,
  • 00:22:47.040 --> 00:22:51.040
  • BUT THEY WOULD HAVE A LITTLE HOLIDAY FOR
  • 00:22:51.060 --> 00:22:54.070
  • CHRISTMAS GO BACK, AND SHE WOULD NEVER HAVE
  • 00:22:54.090 --> 00:22:55.170
  • GOTTEN A PRESENT.
  • 00:22:55.190 --> 00:22:57.000
  • BUT SO MANY OF THE REST OF THEM WOULD TALK ABOUT
  • 00:22:57.020 --> 00:22:58.140
  • HAVING GOTTEN SOMETHING MODEST.
  • 00:22:58.160 --> 00:23:00.060
  • THESE WERE NOT WEALTHY FAMILIES IN THESE HILLS,
  • 00:23:00.080 --> 00:23:05.090
  • BUT SHE GOT ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
  • 00:23:05.110 --> 00:23:08.000
  • AND SO SHE JUST FOUND IT SO CONFUSING AND SHE
  • 00:23:08.020 --> 00:23:10.130
  • HATED IT.
  • 00:23:10.150 --> 00:23:12.020
  • AND SO ALL OF MY LIFE GROWING UP THIS WAS PART
  • 00:23:12.040 --> 00:23:14.110
  • OF THE FLAVOR IN OUR HOME ON CHRISTMAS MORNING,
  • 00:23:14.130 --> 00:23:17.200
  • THAT SHE DID NOT APPROVE OF THE HOLIDAY.
  • 00:23:17.220 --> 00:23:20.210
  • SHE CERTAINLY APPROVED OF JESUS, BUT SHE DID NOT
  • 00:23:20.230 --> 00:23:23.000
  • APPROVE OF THE PRESENT GIVING.
  • 00:23:23.020 --> 00:23:24.290
  • IT BROUGHT PAIN TO HER, AND IT BROUGHT VERY VERY
  • 00:23:25.010 --> 00:23:30.100
  • SAD MEMORIES TO HER, BUT WHEN I THINK ABOUT THE
  • 00:23:30.120 --> 00:23:33.180
  • INCARNATION, AND THIS IS WHAT I HOPE FOR SOMEBODY
  • 00:23:33.200 --> 00:23:35.110
  • WATCHING, BECAUSE IT MAY BE THAT THEY ARE IN A
  • 00:23:35.130 --> 00:23:39.080
  • SITUATION WHERE THEY CAN'T OPENLY CELEBRATE IN
  • 00:23:39.100 --> 00:23:43.100
  • THEIR HOME, OR IT MAY BE THAT THEY'RE ALL ALONE.
  • 00:23:43.120 --> 00:23:46.120
  • BUT WHAT I CAN TELL YOU IS THIS, MY GRANDMOTHER
  • 00:23:46.140 --> 00:23:49.290
  • MAY NOT HAVE GOTTEN ANYTHING THAT SHE COULD
  • 00:23:50.010 --> 00:23:51.290
  • HAVE GONE BACK TO SCHOOL AND SAID SANTA CLAUS
  • 00:23:52.010 --> 00:23:53.190
  • BROUGHT ME THAT, BUT I CAN TELL YOU THIS, WE ALL
  • 00:23:53.210 --> 00:23:56.050
  • GET JESUS.
  • 00:23:56.070 --> 00:23:57.130
  • WE ALL GET JESUS.
  • 00:23:57.150 --> 00:23:59.030
  • AND EVERYBODY CAN HAVE THAT, AND HE IS THE ONE
  • 00:23:59.050 --> 00:24:02.260
  • THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING, AND THAT IS THE GIFT.
  • 00:24:02.280 --> 00:24:07.030
  • THAT IS THE GIFT.
  • 00:24:07.050 --> 00:24:08.170
  • AND WE ARE FREE, AND WE ARE LOVED, AND WE ARE
  • 00:24:08.190 --> 00:24:14.010
  • CHOSEN, AND WE HAVE BEEN RANSOMED BECAUSE GOD WAS
  • 00:24:14.030 --> 00:24:19.000
  • MADE FLESH AND CAME TO DWELL AMONG US.
  • 00:24:19.020 --> 00:24:22.070
  • AND THAT IS A BEAUTIFUL THING.
  • 00:24:22.090 --> 00:24:23.190

  • THE WORD OF THE LORD FOR YOU.

  • BELIEVE THAT IN JESUS NAME.

  • - I JUST ENCOURAGE YOU TO RECEIVE IT EVEN TODAY.
  • 00:24:31.230 --> 00:24:33.080
  • WHAT A GREAT GIFT TO RECEIVE JESUS
  • 00:24:33.100 --> 00:24:34.260
  • ON CHRISTMAS.

  • - GOD DOES LOVE US, AND THAT'S THE MESSAGE OF THE
