  • ACCESS GRANTED.
  • 00:02:27.030 --> 00:02:28.160
  • NOW, I KNOW IT'S BEEN RAINING, IT'S A LITTLE QUIET IN HERE,
  • 00:02:28.190 --> 00:02:30.180
  • I ALREADY DON'T LIKE IT.
  • 00:02:30.210 --> 00:02:31.250
  • IT'S TOO QUITE.
  • 00:02:31.280 --> 00:02:33.010
  • Y'ALL KNOW ME, I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S WRONG BUT GO AHEAD
  • 00:02:33.040 --> 00:02:35.080
  • AND SHAKE OFF THE RAIN.
  • 00:02:35.110 --> 00:02:36.200
  • I KNOW TRAFFIC WAS BAD BUT WE'RE IN HERE NOW.

  • LET'S LEAN IN.
  • 00:02:46.180 --> 00:02:52.150
  • YOU KNEW IT WAS GONNA RAIN,
  • 00:02:52.180 --> 00:02:53.210
  • DON'T BE MAD 'CAUSE YOUR HAIR'S WET, YOU KNEW.
  • 00:02:53.240 --> 00:02:59.020
  • ACTS 4:13.
  • 00:02:59.050 --> 00:03:01.200
  • NOW WHEN THEY SAW THE BOLDNESS OF PETER AND JOHN,
  • 00:03:01.230 --> 00:03:03.130
  • AND PERCEIVED THAT THEY WERE UNEDUCATED AND UNTRAINED MEN,
  • 00:03:03.160 --> 00:03:07.090
  • THEY MARVELED AND THEY REALIZED
  • 00:03:07.120 --> 00:03:09.120
  • THAT THEY HAD BEEN WITH JESUS.
  • 00:03:09.150 --> 00:03:12.070
  • SOMETHING ABOUT JESUS.
  • 00:03:12.100 --> 00:03:13.170
  • MY BUDDY KIRK FRANKLIN WROTE A SONG
  • 00:03:13.200 --> 00:03:16.070
  • AND I GOT TO SING ON THAT RECORD.
  • 00:03:16.100 --> 00:03:19.000
  • SOMETHING ABOUT THE NAME JESUS
  • 00:03:19.030 --> 00:03:23.140
  • SOMETHING ABOUT THE NAME JESUS
  • 00:03:23.170 --> 00:03:27.080
  • IT IS THE SWEETEST NAME I KNOW
  • 00:03:27.110 --> 00:03:35.290
  • OH HOW I LOVE THE NAME JESUS
  • 00:03:36.020 --> 00:03:40.150
  • OH HOW I LOVE THE NAME JESUS
  • 00:03:40.180 --> 00:03:44.110
  • IT IS THE SWEETEST NAME I KNOW
  • 00:03:44.140 --> 00:03:51.190
  • SOMETHING ABOUT THE NAME JESUS CHANGES THE ATMOSPHERE.
  • 00:03:51.220 --> 00:03:57.130
  • SOMETHING ABOUT THE NAME JESUS SPARKS SOMETHING
  • 00:03:57.160 --> 00:04:01.170
  • IN THE HEART AND THE SOUL OF A BELIEVER.
  • 00:04:01.200 --> 00:04:04.030
  • SOMETHING ABOUT THE NAME JESUS GIVES HOPE TO THE DESPERATE.
  • 00:04:04.060 --> 00:04:08.260
  • IT SPEAKS FREEDOM TO THOSE IN BONDAGE.
  • 00:04:08.290 --> 00:04:11.290
  • SOMETHING ABOUT THE NAME JESUS.
  • 00:04:12.020 --> 00:04:14.190
  • WHEN YOU SPEAK HIS NAME AND YOU MEAN IT
  • 00:04:14.220 --> 00:04:17.030
  • FROM A SINCERE HEART, HE CANNOT HELP BUT SHOW UP.
  • 00:04:17.060 --> 00:04:20.290
  • [CONGREGATION SHOUTS]
  • 00:04:21.020 --> 00:04:22.020
  • CAN SOMEBODY JUST GET THE NAME JESUS ON YOUR LIPS?
  • 00:04:22.050 --> 00:04:25.230
  • CAN SOMEBODY JUST SHOUT OUT THE NAME OF--
  • 00:04:25.260 --> 00:04:28.130
  • -[CONGREGATION] JESUS.
  • 00:04:28.160 --> 00:04:30.020
  • - CAN SOMEBODY ELSE SHOUT OUT THE NAME OF--
  • 00:04:30.050 --> 00:04:31.260
  • -[CONGREGATION] JESUS.
  • 00:04:31.290 --> 00:04:33.190
  • - WE EXIST HERE BECAUSE OF THE WORK OF JESUS.
  • 00:04:33.220 --> 00:04:36.080
  • THE FINISHED WORK OF THE CROSS GIVES YOU ACCESS
  • 00:04:36.110 --> 00:04:38.220
  • TO RECLINE IN THAT NICE CHAIR, OR TO WATCH ONLINE.
  • 00:04:38.250 --> 00:04:41.270
  • THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT THE NAME JESUS.
  • 00:04:42.000 --> 00:04:43.250
  • AND I FEAR THAT SOME PARTS OF THE CHURCH GLOBALLY
  • 00:04:43.280 --> 00:04:47.150
  • HAVE BECOME A LITTLE TOO CASUAL WITH THE NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:04:47.180 --> 00:04:50.160
  • 'CAUSE LAST TIME I CHECKED, DEMONS STILL FLEE
  • 00:04:50.190 --> 00:04:53.100
  • AT THE NAME OF JESUS, DEMONS BOW DOWN AT THE NAME
  • 00:04:53.130 --> 00:04:56.190
  • OF JESUS, SICKNESS MUST RELENT AT THE NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:04:56.220 --> 00:05:01.140
  • JESUS STILL CARRIES WEIGHT IN HEAVEN AND EARTH,
  • 00:05:01.170 --> 00:05:05.000
  • AND UNDER THE EARTH.
  • 00:05:05.030 --> 00:05:06.150
  • SOMEBODY SAY I'M WITH HIM.
  • 00:05:06.180 --> 00:05:08.040
  • -[CONGREGATION] I'M WITH HIM.
  • 00:05:08.070 --> 00:05:10.270
  • - IT'S ABOUT RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:05:11.000 --> 00:05:12.230
  • IT'S ABOUT GETTING TO KNOW JESUS.
  • 00:05:12.260 --> 00:05:15.140
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU'RE IN RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS?
  • 00:05:15.170 --> 00:05:18.050
  • I WAS SEVEN YEARS OLD, IN MY CHURCH IN CINCINNATI,
  • 00:05:18.080 --> 00:05:21.040
  • WHEN I WALKED DOWN TO THE FRONT OF THE ALTAR
  • 00:05:21.070 --> 00:05:23.160
  • RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE COMMUNION TABLE.
  • 00:05:23.190 --> 00:05:25.230
  • YOU DON'T TOUCH THAT COMMUNION TABLE,
  • 00:05:25.260 --> 00:05:27.090
  • NOT AT THE BAPTIST CHURCH.
  • 00:05:27.120 --> 00:05:28.090
  • DON'T YOU TOUCH THAT COMMUNION TABLE.
  • 00:05:28.120 --> 00:05:32.060
  • BUT I REMEMBER GIVING MY LIFE TO JESUS.
  • 00:05:32.090 --> 00:05:33.260
  • I KNEW WHO JESUS WAS AT SEVEN YEARS OLD
  • 00:05:33.290 --> 00:05:36.070
  • AND I GAVE MY LIFE TO JESUS.
  • 00:05:36.100 --> 00:05:38.250
  • AND FROM THEN UNTIL RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:05:38.280 --> 00:05:40.260
  • I'VE BEEN BUILDING MY RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS.
  • 00:05:40.290 --> 00:05:45.260
  • I'VE GOTTEN TO KNOW HIM BETTER.
  • 00:05:45.290 --> 00:05:47.290
  • SEVEN YEAR OLD MIND SET IS VERY DIFFERENT
  • 00:05:48.020 --> 00:05:50.250
  • FROM 43 YEAR OLD MIND SET.
  • 00:05:50.280 --> 00:05:53.030
  • I'VE WALKED THROUGH SOME THINGS, I'VE SHED SOME TEARS,
  • 00:05:53.060 --> 00:05:56.120
  • I'VE MADE SOME GOOD DECISIONS,
  • 00:05:56.150 --> 00:05:58.140
  • AND THEN I'VE MADE SOME BAD DECISIONS.
  • 00:05:58.170 --> 00:06:00.100
  • I LISTENED TO THE VOICE OF THE LORD
  • 00:06:00.130 --> 00:06:02.050
  • AND OTHER TIMES HE SPOKE AND I IGNORED IT,
  • 00:06:02.080 --> 00:06:04.100
  • AND I PAID THE PRICE FOR IT.
  • 00:06:04.130 --> 00:06:05.230
  • BUT OUT OF HIS LOVE, HIS MERCY AND HIS GRACE,
  • 00:06:05.260 --> 00:06:07.230
  • HE DID NOT IMPUTE TO ME THE FULL PAYMENT FOR WHAT I DID,
  • 00:06:07.260 --> 00:06:11.030
  • BUT HE TOOK THE BLOW OF WHAT COULD HAVE RUINED ME.
  • 00:06:11.060 --> 00:06:13.240
  • IS THERE ANYBODY ELSE GRATEFUL THAT WHEN YOU MADE A MISTAKE,
  • 00:06:13.270 --> 00:06:17.140
  • JESUS TOOK THE WEIGHT.
  • 00:06:17.170 --> 00:06:23.120
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS
  • 00:06:23.150 --> 00:06:25.270
  • IS THE MOST CRITICAL ASPECT OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:06:26.000 --> 00:06:29.210
  • WHAT YOU DO WITH THE PERSON OF JESUS
  • 00:06:29.240 --> 00:06:32.010
  • WILL DETERMINE THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:06:32.040 --> 00:06:34.120
  • I'LL SAY IT AGAIN, WHAT YOU DO SIR WITH JESUS
  • 00:06:34.150 --> 00:06:37.060
  • WILL DETERMINE THE TRAJECTORY OF THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:06:37.090 --> 00:06:40.230
  • FOR MANY PEOPLE, WHEN WE THINK OF RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:06:40.260 --> 00:06:43.040
  • WE CAN ONLY DEAL WITH RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:06:43.070 --> 00:06:45.100
  • BASED ON THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT WE HAVE OR WERE RAISED IN.
  • 00:06:45.130 --> 00:06:50.230
  • SO EVEN IN THAT THERE ARE SOME THINGS
  • 00:06:50.260 --> 00:06:53.180
  • THAT I WANNA TALK ABOUT WHEN I SAY I'M WITH HIM,
  • 00:06:53.210 --> 00:06:57.060
  • ACCESS GRANTED.
  • 00:06:57.090 --> 00:06:59.050
  • FIRST OF ALL, RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS
  • 00:06:59.080 --> 00:07:01.210
  • IS NOT JUST ABOUT GETTING THINGS.
  • 00:07:01.240 --> 00:07:04.160
  • A LOT OF TIMES I'VE BEEN IN DIFFERENT CHURCH SETTINGS
  • 00:07:04.190 --> 00:07:06.260
  • AND I'VE HEARD PEOPLE, "I'M GONNA GET MY BLESSING.
  • 00:07:06.290 --> 00:07:09.060
  • "I'M GONNA GET MY BLESSING THAT'S WHAT,"
  • 00:07:09.090 --> 00:07:10.250
  • "HOW YOU DOING?
  • 00:07:10.280 --> 00:07:11.200
  • "YOU READY FOR IT?"
  • 00:07:11.230 --> 00:07:12.210
  • "YEAH, I'MA GET MINE, HOPE YOU GET YOURS.
  • 00:07:12.240 --> 00:07:14.030
  • "WE GON' GET OURS, LET'S GET OURS TOGETHER.
  • 00:07:14.060 --> 00:07:15.200
  • "IF YOU GET SOMETHING BETTER THAN MINE,
  • 00:07:15.230 --> 00:07:16.280
  • "GIVE ME 1/2 OF YOURS.
  • 00:07:17.010 --> 00:07:18.010
  • "AND THEN WHEN MINE COME, I GIVE YOU SOME OF MINE,
  • 00:07:18.040 --> 00:07:20.020
  • "I'M GONNA GET MY BLESSING."
  • 00:07:20.050 --> 00:07:23.050
  • SOME OF Y'ALL LIKE I WANNA LAUGH,
  • 00:07:23.080 --> 00:07:24.140
  • BUT THAT'S ACTUALLY WHY I CAME,
  • 00:07:24.170 --> 00:07:25.260
  • I ACTUALLY CAME FOR MY BLESSING.
  • 00:07:25.290 --> 00:07:29.220
  • IS THAT WRONG?
  • 00:07:29.250 --> 00:07:30.160
  • I NEED A BLESSING.
  • 00:07:30.190 --> 00:07:33.020
  • LET ME TELL YOU WHAT RELATIONSHIP IS
  • 00:07:33.050 --> 00:07:34.280
  • RELATIONSHIP IS NOT JUST ABOUT GETTING SOMETHING,
  • 00:07:35.010 --> 00:07:38.170
  • IT'S ABOUT BECOMING SOMETHING.
  • 00:07:38.200 --> 00:07:42.170
  • SO I WANT YOU TO WRITE THESE THINGS DOWN.
  • 00:07:42.200 --> 00:07:44.030
  • I WANT YOU TO GRAB THESE THINGS BECAUSE I WANT US TO,
  • 00:07:44.060 --> 00:07:46.130
  • I WANT US TO MATURE, RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS
  • 00:07:46.160 --> 00:07:49.060
  • IS NOT ABOUT GETTING, IT REALLY IS ABOUT BECOMING.
  • 00:07:49.090 --> 00:07:53.140
  • FOR TOO MANY JESUS HAS BECOME A COMMODITY
  • 00:07:53.170 --> 00:07:57.090
  • TO BE MONETIZED AND NOT WORSHIPED.
  • 00:07:57.120 --> 00:08:00.190
  • IN CERTAIN SEGMENTS OF RELIGIOUS THOUGHT,
  • 00:08:00.220 --> 00:08:04.050
  • JESUS IS NOTHING MORE THAN A VERY GOOD MAN,
  • 00:08:04.080 --> 00:08:07.190
  • A MIDDLE EASTERN REVOLUTIONARY WHO CAME ALONG
  • 00:08:07.220 --> 00:08:10.120
  • DOING GOOD DEEDS AND DIED A VERY TRAGIC LIFE,
  • 00:08:10.150 --> 00:08:14.120
  • NEVER TO BE HEARD FROM AGAIN.
  • 00:08:14.150 --> 00:08:16.100
  • BUT JESUS IS MORE THAN A HISTORICAL FIGURE
  • 00:08:16.130 --> 00:08:18.280
  • AND A NICE MAN FROM GALILEE.
  • 00:08:19.010 --> 00:08:21.000
  • HE IS IN FACT THE FULFILLMENT OF THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS.
  • 00:08:21.030 --> 00:08:24.100
  • HE IS THE FULL PAYMENT OF SIN.
  • 00:08:24.130 --> 00:08:26.110
  • HE IS THE FIRST BEGOTTEN OF HEAVEN,
  • 00:08:26.140 --> 00:08:28.200
  • THE FIRST BORN OF THE DEAD.
  • 00:08:28.230 --> 00:08:30.140
  • AND HE IS SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER
  • 00:08:30.170 --> 00:08:33.020
  • AND HE GETS ALL OF MY PASSION, ALL OF MY ALLEGIANCE
  • 00:08:33.050 --> 00:08:36.100
  • AND ALL OF MY PRAISE AND HE IS NOT SIMPLY
  • 00:08:36.130 --> 00:08:39.090
  • A COMMERCIALIZED VERSION OF SANTA CLAUS,
  • 00:08:39.120 --> 00:08:42.050
  • HE IS THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:08:42.080 --> 00:08:44.040
  • AND I WISH THAT I HAD A FEW PEOPLE
  • 00:08:44.070 --> 00:08:46.140
  • THAT SHARE MY PASSION FOR JESUS.
  • 00:08:46.170 --> 00:08:52.090
  • GLORY!
  • 00:08:52.120 --> 00:08:56.010
  • JESUS IS MORE THAN JUST A NICE MAN WHO DIED A PAINFUL DEATH,
  • 00:08:56.040 --> 00:09:02.050
  • HE IS THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:09:02.080 --> 00:09:05.150
  • AND FOR THOSE OF US WHO HAVE GIVEN OUR LIVES TO THIS TRUTH,
  • 00:09:05.180 --> 00:09:10.220
  • THEN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WE BELIEVE SOMETHING
  • 00:09:10.250 --> 00:09:13.010
  • THAT MANY IN THE WORLD DO NOT.
  • 00:09:13.040 --> 00:09:15.260
  • BUT BECAUSE WE'VE BEEN IN RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM,
  • 00:09:15.290 --> 00:09:18.120
  • WE KNOW HIM.
  • 00:09:18.150 --> 00:09:19.200
  • HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN SAY I KNOW JESUS.
  • 00:09:19.230 --> 00:09:24.190
  • SO THE GOAL IS NOT NECESSARILY TO GET SOMETHING FROM JESUS,
  • 00:09:24.220 --> 00:09:29.030
  • IT'S BECOMING SOMETHING WITH JESUS.
  • 00:09:29.060 --> 00:09:32.290
  • HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN?
  • 00:09:33.020 --> 00:09:35.030
  • HOW MANY MARRIED FOLK IN HERE?
  • 00:09:35.060 --> 00:09:36.140
  • LET ME SEE YOUR HANDS, MARRIED.
  • 00:09:36.170 --> 00:09:37.160
  • KEEP 'EM UP.
  • 00:09:37.190 --> 00:09:39.120

  • SINGLE, SINGLE, SINGLE.
  • 00:09:41.050 --> 00:09:42.190
  • LOOK AT THIS.
  • 00:09:42.220 --> 00:09:43.280
  • KEEP YOUR HANDS UP.
  • 00:09:44.010 --> 00:09:44.280
  • JESUS, PLEASE BLESS THESE SINGLE PEOPLE.
  • 00:09:45.010 --> 00:09:47.150
  • KEEP YOUR HANDS UP, DON'T PUT YOUR HAND DOWN.
  • 00:09:47.180 --> 00:09:49.150
  • I DON'T WANT NO BLESSING.
  • 00:09:49.180 --> 00:09:50.210
  • YES, I DO.
  • 00:09:50.240 --> 00:09:52.290
  • YOU BETTER GET YOUR BLESSING.
  • 00:09:53.020 --> 00:09:53.240
  • KEEP YOUR HANDS UP.
  • 00:09:53.270 --> 00:09:55.000
  • SOME OF Y'ALL NEED TO BE SCANNING THE CROWD.
  • 00:09:55.030 --> 00:09:56.220
  • ARE THEY HERE, JESUS?
  • 00:09:56.250 --> 00:09:57.210
  • I JUST WASN'T SURE.
  • 00:09:57.240 --> 00:10:00.100
  • I'M A BUMP INTO 'EM ON THE WAY OUT THE DOOR.
  • 00:10:00.130 --> 00:10:02.090
  • I JUST,
  • 00:10:02.120 --> 00:10:06.190
  • YOU KNOW YOU GON' STAY SINGLE IF YOU DON'T CONNECT
  • 00:10:06.220 --> 00:10:10.270
  • WITH SOMEBODY ELSE, AND HAVE CONVERSATION AND COMMUNICATION,
  • 00:10:11.000 --> 00:10:17.080
  • AND TALK ABOUT SHARED GOALS AND DREAMS, YOU'LL STAY SINGLE.
  • 00:10:17.110 --> 00:10:22.000
  • THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE MARRIED, WHO ARE SINGLE.
  • 00:10:22.030 --> 00:10:25.290
  • BECAUSE THEY DON'T TALK ANYMORE.
  • 00:10:26.020 --> 00:10:29.080
  • RELATIONSHIP IS ALL ABOUT COMMUNICATION.
  • 00:10:29.110 --> 00:10:34.150
  • YOU CAN'T TELL ME YOUR RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:10:34.180 --> 00:10:38.100
  • BUT YOU ALL NEVER COMMUNICATE.
  • 00:10:38.130 --> 00:10:40.140
  • WHEN'S THE LAST TIME YOU SAT DOWN,
  • 00:10:40.170 --> 00:10:42.030
  • SHUT OFF EVERYTHING AND PRAYED?
  • 00:10:42.060 --> 00:10:46.170
  • I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT SHOWER PRAYER.
  • 00:10:46.200 --> 00:10:48.230
  • [CONGREGATION LAUGHS]
  • 00:10:48.260 --> 00:10:51.140
  • THAT SEVEN MINUTES IN THAT SHOWER IS NOT ENOUGH.
  • 00:10:51.170 --> 00:10:54.250
  • NOT FOR THE THINGS THAT GOD WANTS TO DO IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:10:54.280 --> 00:11:00.050
  • PERSISTENT, COMMITTED TIME
  • 00:11:00.080 --> 00:11:02.150
  • WITH THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
  • 00:11:02.180 --> 00:11:04.170
  • RELATIONSHIPS TAKE TIME, YOU GOTTA BUILD IT.
  • 00:11:04.200 --> 00:11:07.080
  • I'VE BEEN MARRIED FIVE AND A 1/2 YEARS
  • 00:11:07.110 --> 00:11:08.260
  • AND I'VE LEARNED THE HARD WAY THAT ONE GOOD CONVERSATION
  • 00:11:08.290 --> 00:11:12.200
  • DOES NOT IN ITSELF MEAN I HAVE ARRIVED.
  • 00:11:12.230 --> 00:11:15.160
  • I HAVE TO CONTINUOUSLY ENGAGE IN DIALOGUE WITH MY WIFE.
  • 00:11:15.190 --> 00:11:19.260
  • BECAUSE WOMEN LIKE COMMUNICATION.
  • 00:11:19.290 --> 00:11:22.080
  • THEY LIKE TO TALK.
  • 00:11:22.110 --> 00:11:23.270
  • I LIKE TO WATCH SPORTS.
  • 00:11:24.000 --> 00:11:25.270
  • SHE WANTS TO TALK.
  • 00:11:26.000 --> 00:11:27.180
  • I LIKE CHICKEN WINGS AND SHE LIKES TO TALK.
  • 00:11:27.210 --> 00:11:31.100
  • AND SO I NEED TO LEARN HOW TO TALK.
  • 00:11:31.130 --> 00:11:35.000
  • IF I WANT PEACE IN MY MARRIAGE,
  • 00:11:35.030 --> 00:11:37.180
  • THEN I BETTER LEARN TO ENGAGE HER AND RELATE TO HER
  • 00:11:37.210 --> 00:11:41.140
  • IN A WAY THAT CAUSES HER TO FEEL VALUE.
  • 00:11:41.170 --> 00:11:44.230
  • IN THE SAME WAY, HOW DOES JESUS KNOW
  • 00:11:44.260 --> 00:11:47.160
  • THAT YOU LOVE HIM MORE THAN YOUR LIP SERVICE,
  • 00:11:47.190 --> 00:11:49.210
  • IF ALL YOU DO IS SAY YOU LOVE HIM,
  • 00:11:49.240 --> 00:11:51.180
  • BUT NEVER DO ANYTHING TO BACK UP YOUR WORDS?
  • 00:11:51.210 --> 00:11:59.010
  • SOMEBODY SAY I'M WITH HIM.
  • 00:11:59.040 --> 00:12:00.250
  • -[CONGREGATION] I'M WITH HIM.
  • 00:12:00.280 --> 00:12:02.090
  • - RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS
  • 00:12:02.120 --> 00:12:03.140
  • IS NOT JUST ABOUT GETTING SOMETHING.
  • 00:12:03.170 --> 00:12:05.210
  • THAT'S A VERY TOP HEAVY RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:12:05.240 --> 00:12:07.260
  • ANYBODY EVER BEEN IN A RELATIONSHIP

  • - BUT THE PURPOSE OF SPENDING TIME WITH JESUS
  • 00:13:33.100 --> 00:13:36.110
  • IS BECAUSE WE LITERALLY WANT TO BECOME MORE LIKE HIM.
  • 00:13:36.140 --> 00:13:40.120
  • THE MORE YOU SPEND TIME WITH AN INDIVIDUAL,
  • 00:13:40.150 --> 00:13:42.140
  • THE MORE YOU REFLECT THEIR CHARACTER,
  • 00:13:42.170 --> 00:13:45.030
  • THEIR MANNERISMS AND THEIR INTENTIONS.
  • 00:13:45.060 --> 00:13:49.060
  • I'VE BEEN AROUND PEOPLE, I'VE SEEN PICTURES OF FOLK
  • 00:13:49.090 --> 00:13:51.150
  • WHO'VE BEEN MARRIED LIKE 50 AND 60 YEARS,
  • 00:13:51.180 --> 00:13:54.080
  • YOU EVER NOTICE HOW MUCH THEY LOOK ALIKE?

  • AIN'T THAT WEIRD?
  • 00:13:59.000 --> 00:14:00.080
  • I WAS LIKE, ARE THEY MARRIED OR ARE THEY ARE THEY RELATED?
  • 00:14:00.110 --> 00:14:04.280
  • BUT IF YOU SEE A PICTURE WHEN THEY FIRST GOT MARRIED,
  • 00:14:05.010 --> 00:14:07.190
  • THEY WERE VERY DIFFERENT LOOKING PEOPLE.
  • 00:14:07.220 --> 00:14:10.250
  • BUT BECAUSE THEY'VE SPENT SO MUCH TIME TOGETHER,
  • 00:14:10.280 --> 00:14:13.140
  • THERE'S BEEN SO MUCH INTIMACY AND EXCHANGE,
  • 00:14:13.170 --> 00:14:15.270
  • THEY CAN'T HELP BUT BEGIN TO LOOK LIKE ONE ANOTHER
  • 00:14:16.000 --> 00:14:18.290
  • BECAUSE THAT WAS THE INTENT OF MARRIAGE ALL ALONG
  • 00:14:19.020 --> 00:14:21.160
  • FOR TWO TO BECOME ONE FLESH.
  • 00:14:21.190 --> 00:14:27.190
  • THE QUESTION YOU NEED TO WRITE DOWN IN YOUR JOURNAL
  • 00:14:27.220 --> 00:14:29.130
  • OR PUT IN YOUR SMART PHONE IS,
  • 00:14:29.160 --> 00:14:30.260
  • DO I LOOK MORE LIKE JESUS TODAY THAN I DID YESTERDAY?
  • 00:14:30.290 --> 00:14:35.260
  • DOES MY LIFE REFLECT THAT I AM IN RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS.
  • 00:14:35.290 --> 00:14:41.010
  • DO I REFLECT HIM IN MY CHARACTER,
  • 00:14:41.040 --> 00:14:43.130
  • IN MY MANNERISMS AND MY ENGAGEMENT WITH PEOPLE?
  • 00:14:43.160 --> 00:14:46.090
  • NOT JUST MY FAMILY, BUT THE PEOPLE
  • 00:14:46.120 --> 00:14:48.180
  • THAT DON'T BELIEVE WHAT I BELIEVE?
  • 00:14:48.210 --> 00:14:51.070
  • 'CAUSE THERE'S REALLY NO BETTER GAUGE TO TELL
  • 00:14:51.100 --> 00:14:54.170
  • IF YOU ARE REALLY WALKING WITH JESUS,
  • 00:14:54.200 --> 00:14:56.200
  • THAN WHEN YOU ENCOUNTER PEOPLE

  • WHO ARE NOT WALKING WITH JESUS.
  • 00:14:58.040 --> 00:15:01.080
  • BECAUSE WHEN SOMEBODY WHO'S NOT SAVED SAYS SOMETHING TO YOU
  • 00:15:01.110 --> 00:15:03.280
  • THAT THING IN YOU IS LIKE, OH, YOU THOUGHT
  • 00:15:04.010 --> 00:15:05.140
  • I ALWAYS BEEN IN CHURCH.
  • 00:15:05.170 --> 00:15:08.140
  • SAY SOMETHING ELSE I'M ABOUT TO SHOW YOU WHO I USED TO BE.
  • 00:15:08.170 --> 00:15:12.180
  • DON'T MAKE ME GO TO BC,
  • 00:15:12.210 --> 00:15:14.000
  • I WILL GO TO BEFORE CHRIST IN ZERO, REAL QUICK, ZERO TO 100.

  • HOLY GHOST KEEP FILLING 'EM UP.
  • 00:15:26.250 --> 00:15:32.110
  • DO YOU LOOK MORE LIKE JESUS TODAY THAN YOU DID YESTERDAY?
  • 00:15:32.140 --> 00:15:38.000
  • THE GOAL,
  • 00:15:38.030 --> 00:15:40.170
  • THE GOAL IS NOT TO GET SOMETHING FROM JESUS,
  • 00:15:40.200 --> 00:15:44.000
  • THE GOAL IS TO GET SAME THINGS WITH JESUS.
  • 00:15:44.030 --> 00:15:50.120
  • HERE'S WHAT I MEAN.
  • 00:15:50.150 --> 00:15:51.140
  • WE NEED TO HAVE THE SAME HEART, THE SAME VISION
  • 00:15:51.170 --> 00:15:54.140
  • AND THE SAME DIRECTION.
  • 00:15:54.170 --> 00:15:57.030
  • PLEASE, PLEASE WRITE THOSE DOWN.
  • 00:15:57.060 --> 00:15:59.210
  • THE SAME HEART, THE SAME VISION, THE SAME DIRECTION.
  • 00:15:59.240 --> 00:16:02.160
  • WHEN YOU SAY YOU'VE BEEN WITH JESUS,
  • 00:16:02.190 --> 00:16:04.040
  • SOMETHING NEEDS TO LOOK LIKE IT IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:16:04.070 --> 00:16:07.030
  • NOW, I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT CLINICAL DEPRESSION
  • 00:16:07.060 --> 00:16:09.100
  • AND THINGS OF THAT NATURE.
  • 00:16:09.130 --> 00:16:10.280
  • BECAUSE THOSE THINGS YOU DO NEED
  • 00:16:11.010 --> 00:16:13.060
  • TO SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP, COUNSELING.
  • 00:16:13.090 --> 00:16:15.290
  • IN FACT, MEDICINE CAN ALSO HELP WITH THOSE THINGS.
  • 00:16:16.020 --> 00:16:18.230
  • I'M NOT SPEAKING OF THAT.
  • 00:16:18.260 --> 00:16:19.240
  • BUT I'M TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE WHO ARE ALWAYS,
  • 00:16:19.270 --> 00:16:21.100
  • YOU ALWAYS SEEM TO BE SAD.
  • 00:16:21.130 --> 00:16:22.290
  • THERE'S ALWAYS SOMETHING THE ENEMY'S TRYING TO DO.
  • 00:16:23.020 --> 00:16:25.030
  • THAT IS NOT THE INTENT OF JESUS FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:16:25.060 --> 00:16:28.080
  • I BELIEVE THAT THE MORE YOU SPEND TIME WITH HIM,
  • 00:16:28.110 --> 00:16:30.140
  • THE JOY OF THE LORD CAN BECOME YOUR STRENGTH.
  • 00:16:30.170 --> 00:16:33.040
  • OKAY?
  • 00:16:33.070 --> 00:16:33.290
  • SO I GAVE THE CAVEAT FOR THOSE
  • 00:16:34.020 --> 00:16:35.050
  • WHO ARE LITERALLY WALKING THROUGH DEPRESSION.
  • 00:16:35.080 --> 00:16:37.140
  • BUT FOR SOME OF US, IT'S NOT CLINICAL DEPRESSION,
  • 00:16:37.170 --> 00:16:40.040
  • WE'RE DEALING WITH SPIRITUAL HEAVINESS,
  • 00:16:40.070 --> 00:16:42.110
  • BECAUSE WE DON'T KNOW HOW TO NAVIGATE THE REALITIES OF LIFE.
  • 00:16:42.140 --> 00:16:45.200
  • BECAUSE LIFE IS NOT EASY.
  • 00:16:45.230 --> 00:16:47.190
  • THAT'S WHY WE HAVE A SAVIOR.
  • 00:16:47.220 --> 00:16:54.110
  • EVERYBODY SAY SAME HEART.
  • 00:16:54.140 --> 00:16:56.020
  • -[CONGREGATION] SAME HEART.
  • 00:16:56.050 --> 00:16:56.270

  • -[CONGREGATION] SAME VISION.
  • 00:16:57.250 --> 00:16:58.170
  • -[PASTOR GRAY] SAME DIRECTION.
  • 00:16:58.200 --> 00:16:59.120
  • -[CONGREGATION] SAME DIRECTION.
  • 00:16:59.150 --> 00:17:00.090
  • - THAT'S WHAT LAKEWOOD IS.
  • 00:17:00.120 --> 00:17:01.060
  • IT IS AN EXTENSION OF GOD'S HEART.
  • 00:17:01.090 --> 00:17:03.200
  • THE LOCAL CHURCH IS WHAT JESUS DIED FOR,
  • 00:17:03.230 --> 00:17:05.200
  • LET'S GET THIS VERY CLEAR.
  • 00:17:05.230 --> 00:17:07.040
  • JESUS DIED, TO SAVE SOULS AND TO ESTABLISH THE LOCAL CHURCH.
  • 00:17:07.070 --> 00:17:12.080
  • IN THAT HE WANTED A COMMUNITY THAT REFLECTED HIS DESIRE
  • 00:17:12.110 --> 00:17:16.250
  • THAT ALL OF US WOULD BE ONE,
  • 00:17:16.280 --> 00:17:18.190
  • EVEN AS HE AND THE FATHER WERE ONE
  • 00:17:18.220 --> 00:17:20.260
  • THAT WE WOULD FIND COMMONALITY AND UNITY
  • 00:17:20.290 --> 00:17:23.170
  • IN SPITE OF OUR DIFFERENCES.
  • 00:17:23.200 --> 00:17:25.070
  • SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE DO IS WE ENGAGE ONE ANOTHER
  • 00:17:25.100 --> 00:17:28.260
  • IN A COMMUNAL SETTING, LIKE THIS.
  • 00:17:28.290 --> 00:17:31.060
  • SO NOW YOU'RE SITTING NEXT TO PEOPLE
  • 00:17:31.090 --> 00:17:33.080
  • THAT YOU MAY NOT NORMALLY CONNECT TO
  • 00:17:33.110 --> 00:17:37.120
  • THAT WAS GOD'S INTENT.
  • 00:17:37.150 --> 00:17:39.030
  • NOW, SOME MAY SAY I'M A LITTLE NERVOUS,
  • 00:17:39.060 --> 00:17:41.000
  • I DON'T REALLY KNOW HOW TO CONNECT
  • 00:17:41.030 --> 00:17:42.130
  • WITH PEOPLE FROM OTHER CULTURE.
  • 00:17:42.160 --> 00:17:43.260
  • WELL, GUESS WHAT, HERE, YOU CAN LAY DOWN CULTURE
  • 00:17:43.290 --> 00:17:46.130
  • FOR AN HOUR AND A 1/2 AND PICK UP THE KINGDOM.
  • 00:17:46.160 --> 00:17:48.280
  • SO IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER IF SOMEONE NEXT TO YOU
  • 00:17:49.010 --> 00:17:51.120
  • DOESN'T HAVE THE SAME AMOUNT OF MELANIN,
  • 00:17:51.150 --> 00:17:53.100
  • BECAUSE THEY GOT THE SAME BLOOD RUNNING THROUGH THEIR VEINS.
  • 00:17:53.130 --> 00:17:56.020
  • AND IT'S THE BLOOD OF JESUS THAT HAS REDEEMED THEM.
  • 00:17:56.050 --> 00:17:58.230
  • SO YOU HAVE COMMON GROUND, SO AT LEAST YOU CAN SMILE AT 'EM.
  • 00:17:58.260 --> 00:18:04.140
  • AT LEAST YOU CAN SAY HELLO.
  • 00:18:04.170 --> 00:18:07.250
  • SOMEBODY SAYING I'M WITH HIM.
  • 00:18:07.280 --> 00:18:09.180
  • -[CONGREGATION] I'M WITH HIM.
  • 00:18:09.210 --> 00:18:10.190
  • - SAME HEART, SAME VISION, SAME DIRECTION.
  • 00:18:10.220 --> 00:18:13.010
  • THE HEART, THE VISION, AND THE DIRECTION OF JESUS
  • 00:18:13.040 --> 00:18:16.100
  • WAS FOR SAVING SOULS AND BUILDING THE CHURCH.
  • 00:18:16.130 --> 00:18:18.230
  • AND THE MORE YOU SPEND TIME WITH JESUS,
  • 00:18:18.260 --> 00:18:22.160
  • THE MORE YOU DESIRE, WHAT HE DESIRES.
  • 00:18:22.190 --> 00:18:24.240
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU'RE WITH JESUS?
  • 00:18:24.270 --> 00:18:27.030
  • WRITE THESE DOWN.
  • 00:18:27.060 --> 00:18:27.280
  • CHECK YOUR DESIRES.
  • 00:18:28.010 --> 00:18:33.050
  • CHECK YOUR DESIRES, THAT'S NUMBER ONE.
  • 00:18:33.080 --> 00:18:35.280
  • BECAUSE A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE LIKE,
  • 00:18:36.010 --> 00:18:37.050
  • "LORD, I WANT THIS, THIS AND THIS."
  • 00:18:37.080 --> 00:18:40.190
  • AND THEN NONE OF THOSE THREE THINGS SHOW UP
  • 00:18:40.220 --> 00:18:42.220
  • AND YOU'RE LIKE, BUT I PRAYED.
  • 00:18:42.250 --> 00:18:45.140
  • HE'S LIKE, YEAH, YOU PRAYED YOUR FLESH.
  • 00:18:45.170 --> 00:18:49.260
  • BUT IT'S WHAT'S IN MY HEART?
  • 00:18:49.290 --> 00:18:51.260
  • WELL, I NEED TO RECALIBRATE YOUR HEART.
  • 00:18:51.290 --> 00:18:54.160
  • BECAUSE I'LL GIVE YOU THE DESIRES OF YOUR HEART,
  • 00:18:54.190 --> 00:18:56.290
  • AS YOUR HEART LINES UP WITH MY WILL.
  • 00:18:57.020 --> 00:19:00.280
  • THIS IS VERY DIFFERENT FROM THE CLASSIC,
  • 00:19:01.010 --> 00:19:03.000
  • NAME IT CLAIM IT THEOLOGY THAT HAS PERPETUATED CERTAIN AREAS
  • 00:19:03.030 --> 00:19:07.030
  • OF THE CHURCH OVER THE PAST 30 PLUS YEARS,
  • 00:19:07.060 --> 00:19:09.240
  • THAT YOU CAN JUST SAY WHAT YOU WANT,
  • 00:19:09.270 --> 00:19:11.070
  • AND GOD WILL BRING IT TO YOU.
  • 00:19:11.100 --> 00:19:12.160
  • HE IS NOT A GENIE.
  • 00:19:12.190 --> 00:19:15.130
  • HE IS GOD.
  • 00:19:15.160 --> 00:19:16.270
  • AND WHAT HE DESIRES IS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE HIS HEART
  • 00:19:17.000 --> 00:19:20.070
  • BECAUSE IF YOU HAVE HIS HEART, YOU WILL PRAY HIS WILL.
  • 00:19:20.100 --> 00:19:28.100
  • I FEEL GOOD ABOUT THIS MESSAGE, I'M GOING TO TELL YOU WHY.
  • 00:19:28.130 --> 00:19:30.230
  • BECAUSE I FEEL THAT SOMETHING IS SHIFTING IN OUR MIND SET.
  • 00:19:30.260 --> 00:19:33.180
  • BECAUSE FOR TOO LONG,
  • 00:19:33.210 --> 00:19:34.260
  • WE HAVEN'T HAD THE PROPER UNDERSTANDING OF HOW TO NAVIGATE
  • 00:19:34.290 --> 00:19:38.080
  • THIS THING CALLED RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS.
  • 00:19:38.110 --> 00:19:40.220
  • IT'S MORE THAN A MOMENT WHEN WE STAND UP
  • 00:19:40.250 --> 00:19:43.030
  • AND GET A BOOK FROM OUR PASTORS AND THEN NOTHING CHANGES.
  • 00:19:43.060 --> 00:19:46.270
  • KNOW, WHEN YOU'RE IN RELATIONSHIP WITH SOMEONE,
  • 00:19:47.000 --> 00:19:49.240
  • YOU GET TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THEM.
  • 00:19:49.270 --> 00:19:51.080
  • AND AS YOU GET TO KNOW MORE, YOU FIND OUT
  • 00:19:51.110 --> 00:19:53.110
  • THAT YOU DIDN'T KNOW AS MUCH AS YOU THOUGHT.
  • 00:19:53.140 --> 00:19:55.040
  • AND THEN YOU WANNA KNOW MORE, AND YOU WANNA SPEND MORE TIME.
  • 00:19:55.070 --> 00:19:58.060
  • AND THIS IS THE BEAUTY OF JESUS,
  • 00:19:58.090 --> 00:19:59.280
  • 'CAUSE YOU'LL NEVER EXHAUST HIM.
  • 00:20:00.010 --> 00:20:01.220
  • HE'S ALWAYS GOT SOMETHING NEW TO SHARE,
  • 00:20:01.250 --> 00:20:04.020
  • SOMETHING NEW TO GIVE, SOMETHING NEW TO OFFER,
  • 00:20:04.050 --> 00:20:07.040
  • SOMETHING NEW TO SPEAK INTO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:20:07.070 --> 00:20:09.140
  • BUT BECAUSE WE ARE AN ENTERTAINMENT-DRIVEN CULTURE,
  • 00:20:09.170 --> 00:20:14.230
  • WE'VE GOTTA LAY DOWN HOW WE THINK RELATIONSHIPS ARE.
  • 00:20:14.260 --> 00:20:17.140
  • JESUS IS NOT REALITY TV, HE IS REALITY.
  • 00:20:17.170 --> 00:20:23.140
  • YOU CAN'T ENGAGE IN INTIMACY FOR 27 MINUTES ON TV,
  • 00:20:23.170 --> 00:20:27.200
  • AND YOU LOOK AND YOU SEE THE TOTALITY OF A RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:20:27.230 --> 00:20:30.070
  • AND BE LIKE I WANT THAT IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:20:30.100 --> 00:20:32.000
  • NO YOU DON'T, THEY SCRIPTED THAT.
  • 00:20:32.030 --> 00:20:35.040
  • REAL RELATIONSHIP IS UNSCRIPTED.
  • 00:20:35.070 --> 00:20:37.180
  • THE MARRIAGES THAT I SEE THAT HAVE SOME SUBSTANCE TO THEM,
  • 00:20:37.210 --> 00:20:41.130
  • THEY'VE BEEN THROUGH SOME THINGS.
  • 00:20:41.160 --> 00:20:43.170
  • CAN I TALK TO ANY MARRIED FOLK IN HERE?
  • 00:20:43.200 --> 00:20:47.070
  • BEEN THROUGH SOME THINGS, SHED SOME TEARS,
  • 00:20:47.100 --> 00:20:50.100
  • GOT SOME BATTLE SCARS, THE ENEMY ATTACKS.
  • 00:20:50.130 --> 00:20:52.210
  • WHY?
  • 00:20:52.240 --> 00:20:53.160
  • HE HATES MARRIAGE.
  • 00:20:53.190 --> 00:20:54.110
  • WHY?
  • 00:20:54.140 --> 00:20:55.130
  • BECAUSE MARRIAGE IS A REMINDER OF THE COVENANT
  • 00:20:55.160 --> 00:20:56.200
  • BETWEEN CHRIST AND THE CHURCH IN THE EARTH.
  • 00:20:56.230 --> 00:20:59.060
  • HE DOESN'T LIKE YOU BECAUSE HE HATES THE FACT
  • 00:20:59.090 --> 00:21:02.020
  • THAT GOD CHOSE YOU INSTEAD OF HIM.
  • 00:21:02.050 --> 00:21:07.150
  • I'M TRYING TO TEACH BUT I FEEL THE PREACH.
  • 00:21:07.180 --> 00:21:15.290
  • JESUS, THAT IS CRAZY.
  • 00:21:16.020 --> 00:21:20.090
  • THAT'S AWESOME.
  • 00:21:20.120 --> 00:21:22.050
  • JESUS, DOESN'T JUST WANT TO BE A PART OF YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:21:22.080 --> 00:21:30.120
  • HE WANTS TO BE YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:21:30.150 --> 00:21:34.250
  • HERE'S THE SCRIPTURE THAT BACKS UP MY CLAIM.
  • 00:21:34.280 --> 00:21:41.130
  • HELP ME JESUS, 'CAUSE I HAD IT.
  • 00:21:41.160 --> 00:21:46.040
  • OH, I CAN'T FIND IT, I THINK IT'S IN MY PHONE.
  • 00:21:46.070 --> 00:21:49.020
  • THERE'S A SCRIPTURE THAT SAYS WHEN CHRIST,
  • 00:21:49.050 --> 00:21:50.190
  • WHO IS YOUR LIFE APPEARS,
  • 00:21:50.220 --> 00:21:52.260

  • BUT I'M NOT GONNA LET THAT STOP ME.
  • 00:22:00.050 --> 00:22:02.000
  • I'M GONNA FIND THAT SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:22:02.030 --> 00:22:06.090
  • OR MAYBE I WANT, IT'S WHAT?

  • I KNEW WHERE IN WANTED TO GO BUT MY FAMILY GOT ME THERE.

  • 00:22:21.030 --> 00:22:23.070
  • BUT YOUR FAMILY MAY HAVE THE REST.

  • WE'RE FAMILY, WE'RE FAMILY.

  • SET YOUR MIND ON THINGS ABOVE NOT ON THINGS ON THE EARTH.
  • 00:22:38.060 --> 00:22:41.240
  • FOR YOU DIED, AND YOUR LIFE IS HIDDEN WITH CHRIST AND GOD.
  • 00:22:41.270 --> 00:22:44.130
  • WHEN CHRIST WHO IS OUR LIFE APPEARS,
  • 00:22:44.160 --> 00:22:48.010
  • THEN YOU ALSO WILL APPEAR WITH HIM IN GLORY.
  • 00:22:48.040 --> 00:22:50.150
  • JESUS DOESN'T JUST WANNA BE A PART OF YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:22:50.180 --> 00:22:53.280
  • HE WANTS TO BE YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:22:54.010 --> 00:22:56.080
  • HOW MUCH SO?
  • 00:22:56.110 --> 00:22:57.240
