  • - BUT A BLESSED LIFE WALKS ON TWO LEGS.
  • 00:00:07.030 --> 00:00:10.110
  • SO ONE LEG IS GENEROSITY
  • 00:00:10.140 --> 00:00:12.180
  • BUT THE OTHER LEG IS STEWARDSHIP.
  • 00:00:12.210 --> 00:00:14.250
  • I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS A CHILD
  • 00:00:14.280 --> 00:00:16.250
  • JUST SEEING SOME CARTOON
  • 00:00:16.280 --> 00:00:19.000
  • WHERE A GUY HAD ONE FOOT NAILED TO THE FLOOR.
  • 00:00:19.030 --> 00:00:22.160
  • SO HE WAS JUST GOING AROUND IN CIRCLES.
  • 00:00:22.190 --> 00:00:24.230
  • FOR SOME REASON I REMEMBER THAT.
  • 00:00:24.260 --> 00:00:27.080
  • Announcer: BEST-SELLING AUTHOR OF THE BLESSED LIFE ,
  • 00:00:27.110 --> 00:00:29.100
  • ROBERT MORRIS NOW TAKES YOU BEYOND BLESSED
  • 00:00:29.130 --> 00:00:31.180
  • TO FIND GOD'S PERFECT PLAN
  • 00:00:31.210 --> 00:00:33.180
  • FOR NO FINANCIAL STRESS.
  • 00:00:33.210 --> 00:00:35.280
  • 00:00:45.030 --> 00:00:54.090
  • James: THIS IS GREAT!
  • 00:01:03.000 --> 00:01:06.000
  • WELCOME TO LIFE TODAY .
  • 00:01:06.000 --> 00:01:07.050
  • JAMES ROBISON, BETTY,
  • 00:01:07.050 --> 00:01:08.100
  • WOULD YOU GO AHEAD
  • 00:01:09.150 --> 00:01:10.220
  • AND SAY ROBERT MORRIS,
  • 00:01:10.220 --> 00:01:11.290
  • PASTOR OF GATEWAY CHURCH,
  • 00:01:11.290 --> 00:01:13.090
  • WE'RE SO HAPPY TO HAVE YOU?
  • 00:01:13.090 --> 00:01:14.120
  • WOULD YOU WELCOME ROBERT?
  • 00:01:14.120 --> 00:01:15.220
  • [Applause]
  • 00:01:15.260 --> 00:01:18.260
  • ROBERT, I WANT US
  • 00:01:18.260 --> 00:01:20.010
  • TO COVER SOME GROUND
  • 00:01:20.010 --> 00:01:21.090
  • BECAUSE 40 YEARS AGO OR SO
  • 00:01:21.090 --> 00:01:23.250
  • YOU AND I STARTED
  • 00:01:23.250 --> 00:01:25.170
  • BEING FRIENDS
  • 00:01:25.170 --> 00:01:27.060
  • AND YOU TRAVELED WITH ME
  • 00:01:27.060 --> 00:01:28.150
  • FOR SEVERAL YEARS,
  • 00:01:28.150 --> 00:01:29.220
  • WORKED FOR OUR MINISTRY.
  • 00:01:29.220 --> 00:01:30.290
  • TO BE A GUEST ON LIFE TODAY .
  • 00:01:32.050 --> 00:01:34.090
  • THE REAL, LET'S SAY
  • 00:01:34.090 --> 00:01:36.000
  • THE HIGH IMPACT TIMES WAS WHEN
  • 00:01:36.000 --> 00:01:38.000
  • AND LITERALLY,
  • 00:01:40.100 --> 00:01:41.100
  • THE MISSIONARIES PRAYED
  • 00:01:41.100 --> 00:01:42.110
  • THIS STUDIO UP.
  • 00:01:42.110 --> 00:01:43.120
  • YOU REMEMBER IT
  • 00:01:43.120 --> 00:01:44.130
  • LAID ON THE GROUND,
  • 00:01:44.130 --> 00:01:45.140
  • JUST TILT UP CONCRETE,
  • 00:01:45.140 --> 00:01:46.150
  • LAID ON THE GROUND
  • 00:01:46.150 --> 00:01:47.160
  • FOR THREE YEARS
  • 00:01:47.160 --> 00:01:48.170
  • UNTIL PETER PRETORIUS
  • 00:01:48.170 --> 00:01:49.180
  • AND OTHER MISSIONARIES SAID,
  • 00:01:49.180 --> 00:01:50.190
  • "YOU HAVEN'T EVEN BUILT
  • 00:01:50.190 --> 00:01:51.200
  • YOUR STUDIO.
  • 00:01:51.200 --> 00:01:52.210
  • YOU CAN'T EVEN DO
  • 00:01:52.210 --> 00:01:53.220
  • WHAT YOU'RE TRYING TO DO
  • 00:01:53.220 --> 00:01:54.240
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE HELPING US
  • 00:01:54.240 --> 00:01:55.250
  • AND YOU'RE SENDING
  • 00:01:55.250 --> 00:01:56.260
  • ALL THE MONEY TO US."
  • 00:01:56.260 --> 00:01:57.270
  • AND THEY CAME OVER
  • 00:01:57.270 --> 00:01:58.280
  • AND PRAYED THE WALLS UP.
  • 00:01:58.280 --> 00:02:00.020
  • WELL, RIGHT AFTER
  • 00:02:00.020 --> 00:02:01.030
  • THEY PRAYED THE WALLS UP
  • 00:02:01.030 --> 00:02:02.040
  • YOU STARTED COMING
  • 00:02:02.040 --> 00:02:03.050
  • AS AN ASSOCIATE
  • 00:02:03.050 --> 00:02:04.060
  • OVER IN GRAND PRAIRIE,
  • 00:02:04.060 --> 00:02:05.070
  • SHADY GROVE, I BELIEVE.
  • 00:02:05.070 --> 00:02:06.070
  • BUT WHEN YOU CAME AND
  • 00:02:06.070 --> 00:02:07.080
  • SAT HERE, THERE WAS SUCH
  • 00:02:07.080 --> 00:02:08.130
  • AN ANOINTING ON YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:02:08.130 --> 00:02:09.200
  • I EVEN SAID
  • 00:02:09.200 --> 00:02:10.260
  • TO OUR TELEVISION STAFF,
  • 00:02:10.260 --> 00:02:13.050
  • THERE'S JUST NOT MANY PEOPLE
  • 00:02:13.050 --> 00:02:14.120
  • THAT COME HERE AND SIT
  • 00:02:14.120 --> 00:02:15.150
  • THAT GOD'S ON THEM WHERE IT
  • 00:02:15.150 --> 00:02:16.210
  • JUST CAPTIVATES PEOPLE.
  • 00:02:16.210 --> 00:02:17.290
  • WELL, SOME OF OUR FAMILY
  • 00:02:17.290 --> 00:02:19.140
  • AND STAFF BEGAN TO SAY TO YOU,
  • 00:02:19.140 --> 00:02:21.020
  • "ROBERT, WHY DON'T YOU TEACH
  • 00:02:21.020 --> 00:02:22.110
  • THIS BLESSED LIFE
  • 00:02:22.110 --> 00:02:23.210
  • THAT YOU KEEP TALKING ABOUT?"
  • 00:02:23.210 --> 00:02:25.030
  • AND JUST AS YOU WERE
  • 00:02:25.030 --> 00:02:26.120
  • STARTING GATEWAY,
  • 00:02:26.120 --> 00:02:27.220
  • YOU CAME HERE
  • 00:02:27.220 --> 00:02:28.280
  • AND YOU TELL THIS STORY
  • 00:02:28.280 --> 00:02:30.110
  • ABOUT HOW YOU WERE ASKED
  • 00:02:30.110 --> 00:02:31.230
  • TO COME AND SIT IN THIS STUDIO
  • 00:02:31.230 --> 00:02:33.040
  • AND TEACH WHAT YOU CALLED
  • 00:02:33.040 --> 00:02:34.190
  • "THE BLESSED LIFE."
  • 00:02:34.190 --> 00:02:37.000
  • SO WOULD YOU SAY THAT
  • 00:02:37.000 --> 00:02:38.040
  • THAT INCREDIBLE BESTSELLER,
  • 00:02:38.040 --> 00:02:40.130
  • THAT MESSAGE
  • 00:02:40.130 --> 00:02:41.200
  • HAS CAUSED PEOPLE
  • 00:02:41.200 --> 00:02:42.270
  • TO LIVE THE BLESSED LIFE
  • 00:02:42.270 --> 00:02:44.020
  • WITH JOY AND CAUSED OTHERS
  • 00:02:44.020 --> 00:02:45.060
  • TO LIVE A BLESSED LIFE
  • 00:02:45.060 --> 00:02:46.140
  • AND BE BLESSED, WAS BORN HERE
  • 00:02:46.140 --> 00:02:48.060
  • AND KIND OF STARTED HERE.
  • 00:02:48.060 --> 00:02:49.160
  • SO IT'S PRETTY EXCITING
  • 00:02:49.160 --> 00:02:50.210
  • TO COME BACK.
  • 00:02:50.210 --> 00:02:51.260
  • BUT NOW YOU'RE HERE
  • 00:02:51.260 --> 00:02:52.290
  • WITH GATEWAY JUST BEING
  • 00:02:52.290 --> 00:02:54.070
  • AN EXAMPLE TO THE WORLD
  • 00:02:54.070 --> 00:02:55.140
  • IN MANY WAYS
  • 00:02:55.140 --> 00:02:56.190
  • BUT YOU GOT BEYOND BLESSED
  • 00:02:56.190 --> 00:02:57.250
  • WHICH YOU ACTUALLY WANT
  • 00:02:57.250 --> 00:02:59.070
  • TO EXPLAIN THAT YOU TAKE
  • 00:02:59.070 --> 00:03:00.140
  • PEOPLE BEYOND BLESSING INTO
  • 00:03:00.140 --> 00:03:01.220
  • STEWARDSHIP RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:03:01.220 --> 00:03:03.020
  • SO WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO,
  • 00:03:03.020 --> 00:03:04.070
  • IF YOU WILL, IS CONTINUE
  • 00:03:04.070 --> 00:03:05.140
  • TAKING US ON THIS JOURNEY
  • 00:03:05.140 --> 00:03:06.240
  • FROM THE BLESSED LIFE
  • 00:03:06.240 --> 00:03:08.070
  • INTO UNDERSTANDING MORE FULLY
  • 00:03:08.070 --> 00:03:10.030
  • WHAT YOU MEAN BY
  • 00:03:10.030 --> 00:03:11.090
  • BEYOND BLESSED .
  • 00:03:11.090 --> 00:03:12.130
  • IF YOU WANT TO PICK UP
  • 00:03:12.130 --> 00:03:13.210
  • THE FACT THAT
  • 00:03:13.210 --> 00:03:14.280
  • YOU'RE BLESSED TO BE HERE,
  • 00:03:14.280 --> 00:03:16.000
  • YOU WERE TELLING US
  • 00:03:16.000 --> 00:03:17.030
  • ABOUT NEARLY DYING
  • 00:03:17.030 --> 00:03:18.040
  • AND YOU WANT TO TELL
  • 00:03:18.040 --> 00:03:19.050
  • A FEW OTHER THINGS ABOUT THAT
  • 00:03:19.050 --> 00:03:20.050
  • FEEL FREE TO BECAUSE
  • 00:03:20.050 --> 00:03:21.080
  • THAT'S WHAT ENABLES YOU
  • 00:03:21.080 --> 00:03:22.080
  • TO CARRY US BEYOND BLESSED .
  • 00:03:22.080 --> 00:03:24.010
  • Robert: WELL,
  • 00:03:24.010 --> 00:03:25.090
  • AS I SHARED WITH YOU BEFORE
  • 00:03:25.090 --> 00:03:26.160
  • THAT WE HAD A HEALTH CRISIS
  • 00:03:26.160 --> 00:03:27.230
  • AND I WENT INTO
  • 00:03:27.230 --> 00:03:29.000
  • THE DETAILS OF THAT,
  • 00:03:29.000 --> 00:03:30.090
  • TWO TORN ARTERIES
  • 00:03:30.090 --> 00:03:32.000
  • AND LOST OVER 50% OF MY BLOOD.
  • 00:03:33.020 --> 00:03:36.020
  • I WAS IN I.C.U. FOR FOUR DAYS
  • 00:03:36.020 --> 00:03:38.130
  • BUT THEY GAVE ME A MEDICINE,
  • 00:03:39.180 --> 00:03:41.260
  • THEY DIDN'T WANT ME
  • 00:03:41.260 --> 00:03:43.110
  • TO GET NAUSEOUS --
  • 00:03:43.110 --> 00:03:44.250
  • James: GOOD JOB! GOOD JOB!
  • 00:03:47.190 --> 00:03:50.150
  • Robert: THEY DIDN'T WANT ME
  • 00:03:50.150 --> 00:03:51.250
  • TO GET (SOME MEDICAL TERM)
  • 00:03:51.250 --> 00:03:52.290
  • THAT MAKES YOU THROW UP.
  • 00:03:52.290 --> 00:03:54.180
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:03:54.180 --> 00:03:56.160
  • BECAUSE OF THE SCARRING
  • 00:03:56.160 --> 00:03:58.080
  • AND ALL THE THINGS.
  • 00:03:58.080 --> 00:03:59.170
  • BUT IT CAUSED HALLUCINATIONS.
  • 00:03:59.240 --> 00:04:02.260
  • SO MY KIDS -
  • 00:04:02.260 --> 00:04:04.170
  • ACTUALLY, JAMES,
  • 00:04:04.170 --> 00:04:05.250
  • I SHOULDN'T TELL THIS
  • 00:04:05.250 --> 00:04:07.010
  • BECAUSE SOME OF YOU
  • 00:04:07.010 --> 00:04:08.050
  • MIGHT KNOW JAMES, MY SON,
  • 00:04:08.050 --> 00:04:09.080
  • HE TOOK VIDEOS OF ME
  • 00:04:09.080 --> 00:04:10.120
  • WHEN I WAS HALLUCINATING.
  • 00:04:10.120 --> 00:04:11.270
  • AND I'VE HAD TO CONFISCATE
  • 00:04:11.270 --> 00:04:13.060
  • HIS PHONE.
  • 00:04:13.060 --> 00:04:14.180
  • BUT ONE NIGHT,
  • 00:04:14.180 --> 00:04:16.110
  • I WAS TRYING TO GET DEBBIE,
  • 00:04:16.110 --> 00:04:18.200
  • SHE SPENT EVERY NIGHT WITH ME
  • 00:04:18.200 --> 00:04:20.000
  • AT THE HOSPITAL.
  • 00:04:20.000 --> 00:04:21.080
  • GOD BLESS HER.
  • 00:04:21.080 --> 00:04:22.160
  • MY KIDS WOULD TAKE THE SHIFTS
  • 00:04:22.160 --> 00:04:24.030
  • DURING THE DAY.
  • 00:04:24.030 --> 00:04:25.200
  • YOU WERE THERE ALMOST
  • 00:04:25.200 --> 00:04:27.000
  • EVERY DAY PRAYING FOR ME,
  • 00:04:27.000 --> 00:04:28.090
  • LAYING HANDS ON ME,
  • 00:04:28.090 --> 00:04:29.170
  • THE ELDERS OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:04:29.270 --> 00:04:32.270
  • SO ONE NIGHT I WAS TRYING
  • 00:04:32.270 --> 00:04:34.140
  • TO GET DEBBIE'S ATTENTION
  • 00:04:34.140 --> 00:04:35.240
  • BECAUSE I COULDN'T REACH
  • 00:04:35.240 --> 00:04:37.020
  • THE THING TO GET THE NURSE.
  • 00:04:37.020 --> 00:04:38.160
  • AND SHE WAS JUST EXHAUSTED.
  • 00:04:38.160 --> 00:04:41.010
  • IT HAD BEEN THREE
  • 00:04:41.010 --> 00:04:42.060
  • OR FOUR DAYS THEN.
  • 00:04:42.060 --> 00:04:43.100
  • I'M SAYING, "DEBBIE! DEBBIE!"
  • 00:04:43.100 --> 00:04:44.280
  • AND SHE IS SLEEPING ON THAT
  • 00:04:44.280 --> 00:04:46.020
  • CHAIR THAT MAKES INTO A BED.
  • 00:04:46.120 --> 00:04:49.120
  • I COULDN'T GET HER ATTENTION.
  • 00:04:49.120 --> 00:04:50.180
  • BUT I NOTICE
  • 00:04:50.180 --> 00:04:51.200
  • MY DAUGHTER-IN-LAW HANNAH
  • 00:04:51.200 --> 00:04:52.240
  • WAS STANDING
  • 00:04:52.240 --> 00:04:54.000
  • RIGHT BESIDE THE BED.
  • 00:04:54.000 --> 00:04:55.070
  • IT LOOKED LIKE SHE WAS TEXTING
  • 00:04:55.070 --> 00:04:57.180
  • OR DOING SOMETHING
  • 00:04:57.180 --> 00:04:58.260
  • ON HER PHONE.
  • 00:04:58.260 --> 00:05:00.050
  • SO I SAID, "HANNAH! HANNAH!"
  • 00:05:00.050 --> 00:05:02.080
  • AND I FINALLY SAID, "HANNAH!"
  • 00:05:02.080 --> 00:05:03.290
  • REALLY LOUDLY
  • 00:05:03.290 --> 00:05:05.070
  • AND DEBBIE HEARD ME.
  • 00:05:05.070 --> 00:05:06.190
  • SO SHE SAID,
  • 00:05:06.190 --> 00:05:07.250
  • "WHAT DO YOU WANT NEED?"
  • 00:05:07.250 --> 00:05:08.290
  • I SAID,
  • 00:05:08.290 --> 00:05:10.000
  • "WELL, I NEED THE NURSE.
  • 00:05:10.000 --> 00:05:11.000
  • I NEED MY MEDICINE.
  • 00:05:11.000 --> 00:05:12.030
  • I'M FEELING KIND OF BAD."
  • 00:05:12.030 --> 00:05:13.050
  • SO SHE DID THAT.
  • 00:05:13.050 --> 00:05:14.110
  • SO THEN WHEN THE NURSE LEFT
  • 00:05:14.110 --> 00:05:15.140
  • SHE SAID,
  • 00:05:15.140 --> 00:05:16.160
  • "WHY WERE YOU CALLING HANNAH?"
  • 00:05:16.160 --> 00:05:18.200
  • I SAID, "WELL, BECAUSE
  • 00:05:18.200 --> 00:05:19.230
  • SHE IS STANDING RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:05:19.230 --> 00:05:20.260
  • SHE IS STANDING
  • 00:05:20.260 --> 00:05:22.050
  • RIGHT BESIDE MY BED."
  • 00:05:22.050 --> 00:05:23.120
  • DEBBIE SAID, "ROBERT,
  • 00:05:23.120 --> 00:05:24.160
  • THAT'S THE I.V. POLE."
  • 00:05:24.160 --> 00:05:25.250
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:05:27.210 --> 00:05:30.210
  • DESPITE A FEW MISNOMERS
  • 00:05:30.210 --> 00:05:32.240
  • LIKE THAT,
  • 00:05:32.240 --> 00:05:34.050
  • I MADE IT THROUGH
  • 00:05:34.050 --> 00:05:35.120
  • BY GOD'S GRACE AND I'M GLAD.
  • 00:05:35.120 --> 00:05:36.230
  • BUT I WANT TO GO BACK
  • 00:05:36.230 --> 00:05:38.110
  • TO THE BLESSED LIFE , THE BOOK.
  • 00:05:38.110 --> 00:05:40.290
  • YOU AND I, AS YOU SAID,
  • 00:05:40.290 --> 00:05:42.170
  • WE'VE BEEN FRIENDS
  • 00:05:42.170 --> 00:05:44.000
  • ALMOST 40 YEARS NOW.
  • 00:05:44.000 --> 00:05:45.050
  • YOU SPOKE INTO OUR LIFE,
  • 00:05:45.050 --> 00:05:46.150
  • TO DEBBIE AND ME.
  • 00:05:46.150 --> 00:05:47.170
  • YOU HAD US IN YOUR HOME
  • 00:05:47.170 --> 00:05:49.000
  • BEFORE WE GOT MARRIED;
  • 00:05:49.000 --> 00:05:50.290
  • WE WERE ENGAGED.
  • 00:05:50.290 --> 00:05:52.130
  • AND THEN, AFTER WE GOT MARRIED
  • 00:05:53.000 --> 00:05:56.000
  • I STARTED TRAVELING WITH YOU
  • 00:05:56.000 --> 00:05:57.120
  • AND YOU WERE DOING
  • 00:05:57.120 --> 00:05:58.150
  • BIG REVIVALS -- BIG CRUSADES,
  • 00:05:58.150 --> 00:06:00.090
  • REALLY -- CITY-WIDE CRUSADES.
  • 00:06:00.090 --> 00:06:01.290
  • AND I WOULD GO AND SPEAK
  • 00:06:01.290 --> 00:06:03.070
  • IN THE SCHOOL ASSEMBLIES
  • 00:06:03.070 --> 00:06:04.150
  • AND INVITE THE YOUNG PEOPLE.
  • 00:06:04.150 --> 00:06:05.210
  • I REMEMBER IN CORPUS CHRISTI
  • 00:06:05.210 --> 00:06:06.290
  • WE HAD 600 KIDS ACCEPT CHRIST
  • 00:06:06.290 --> 00:06:09.090
  • OR SOMETHING IN YOUR CRUSADE.
  • 00:06:09.090 --> 00:06:11.050
  • James: AND MANY OF THEM
  • 00:06:11.050 --> 00:06:12.120
  • HAD HEARD YOU IN THE SCHOOLS
  • 00:06:12.120 --> 00:06:13.170
  • AND CAME TO THE COLISEUM.
  • 00:06:13.170 --> 00:06:14.260
  • Robert: SO YOU BECAME
  • 00:06:14.260 --> 00:06:16.120
  • A SPIRITUAL FATHER TO ME.
  • 00:06:16.120 --> 00:06:19.110
  • YOU SHOWED ME HOW TO GESTURE
  • 00:06:19.110 --> 00:06:21.170
  • IN THE MOTEL ROOM,
  • 00:06:21.170 --> 00:06:22.240
  • IF YOU REMEMBER.
  • 00:06:22.240 --> 00:06:23.250
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:06:23.250 --> 00:06:26.120
  • James: WE NEED TO WORK ON THAT
  • 00:06:26.120 --> 00:06:27.220
  • A LITTLE BIT, ROBERT.
  • 00:06:27.220 --> 00:06:28.250
  • [Laughing]
  • 00:06:28.250 --> 00:06:30.100
  • Robert: I MAY NEED
  • 00:06:30.100 --> 00:06:31.190
  • A REFRESHER COURSE.
  • 00:06:31.190 --> 00:06:32.260
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:06:32.260 --> 00:06:35.040
  • SO WE'VE KNOWN EACH OTHER
  • 00:06:35.040 --> 00:06:36.140
  • A LONG TIME.
  • 00:06:36.140 --> 00:06:37.230
  • BUT GOD DID SOMETHING
  • 00:06:37.230 --> 00:06:39.020
  • IN OUR HEART EARLY ON
  • 00:06:39.020 --> 00:06:40.090
  • IN GIVING AND I WANT
  • 00:06:40.090 --> 00:06:41.150
  • TO SHARE THAT IN A MOMENT.
  • 00:06:41.150 --> 00:06:42.170
  • BUT YOU ASKED ME,
  • 00:06:42.170 --> 00:06:43.240
  • "WILL YOU COME ON OUR PROGRAM
  • 00:06:43.240 --> 00:06:44.250
  • AND TEACH ABOUT GIVING
  • 00:06:44.250 --> 00:06:46.150
  • BECAUSE YOU TEACH
  • 00:06:46.150 --> 00:06:47.280
  • THE MOST BALANCED MESSAGE
  • 00:06:47.280 --> 00:06:49.010
  • I'VE EVER HEARD ON GIVING."
  • 00:06:49.010 --> 00:06:50.190
  • AND THAT IS THAT I TEACH
  • 00:06:50.190 --> 00:06:52.000
  • THAT WE GET TO GIVE
  • 00:06:52.000 --> 00:06:54.140
  • AND SO IT'S REALLY THE MOTIVE
  • 00:06:56.260 --> 00:06:59.080
  • BEHIND OUR GIVING
  • 00:06:59.080 --> 00:07:00.200
  • THAT GOD BLESSES.
  • 00:07:00.200 --> 00:07:01.270
  • HE BLESSES GIVING
  • 00:07:01.270 --> 00:07:03.020
  • HE DOESN'T BLESS --
  • 00:07:04.070 --> 00:07:05.130
  • WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT
  • 00:07:05.130 --> 00:07:06.180
  • WHY DID GOD CREATE GIVING
  • 00:07:06.180 --> 00:07:07.230
  • IN THE FIRST PLACE?
  • 00:07:07.230 --> 00:07:08.250
  • GOD CREATED IT.
  • 00:07:08.250 --> 00:07:10.000
  • NO PREACHER CREATED THIS.
  • 00:07:10.000 --> 00:07:11.110
  • THIS IS IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:07:11.110 --> 00:07:12.180
  • GOD GAVE MOSES INSTRUCTIONS
  • 00:07:12.180 --> 00:07:14.020
  • ON HOW TO GIVE.
  • 00:07:14.020 --> 00:07:15.140
  • HE GAVE ABRAHAM INSTRUCTIONS.
  • 00:07:15.140 --> 00:07:16.250
  • IT'S ALL THROUGH THE BIBLE.
  • 00:07:16.250 --> 00:07:18.020
  • SO GOD CREATED IT
  • 00:07:18.020 --> 00:07:19.040
  • BUT HE DOESN'T NEED OUR MONEY.
  • 00:07:19.040 --> 00:07:20.140
  • SO WHY DID HE CREATE IT?
  • 00:07:20.140 --> 00:07:22.070
  • HE CREATED IT FOR TWO REASONS.
  • 00:07:22.070 --> 00:07:23.210
  • ONE: TO WORK GREED
  • 00:07:23.210 --> 00:07:25.030
  • AND SELFISHNESS
  • 00:07:25.030 --> 00:07:26.060
  • OUT OF OUR LIVES.
  • 00:07:26.060 --> 00:07:27.100
  • TWO: TO PUT JOY IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:07:27.210 --> 00:07:30.210
  • BECAUSE THE MOST JOY
  • 00:07:30.210 --> 00:07:31.280
  • YOU EVER FEEL IS WHEN
  • 00:07:31.280 --> 00:07:33.110
  • YOU GIVE TO HELP SOMEONE.
  • 00:07:33.110 --> 00:07:34.250
  • James: THAT'S WHAT I HEARD.
  • 00:07:34.250 --> 00:07:36.050
  • WRITING CARDS.
  • 00:07:37.140 --> 00:07:38.200
  • NEARLY EVERY ONE OF YOU,
  • 00:07:38.200 --> 00:07:39.230
  • "THANK YOU!
  • 00:07:39.230 --> 00:07:40.260
  • THANK YOU FOR LETTING US GIVE
  • 00:07:40.260 --> 00:07:42.060
  • TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
  • 00:07:42.060 --> 00:07:43.220
  • TO TOUCH THE PEOPLE THAT ARE
  • 00:07:44.270 --> 00:07:46.020
  • OVERLOOKED AND FORGOTTEN."
  • 00:07:46.020 --> 00:07:47.080
  • THANK YOU FOR EXPRESSING THAT.
  • 00:07:47.080 --> 00:07:49.260
  • Robert: AND IF YOU
  • 00:07:49.260 --> 00:07:51.070
  • THINK ABOUT IT,
  • 00:07:51.070 --> 00:07:52.190
  • EVEN THE WORLD KNOWS THIS
  • 00:07:52.190 --> 00:07:54.260
  • BECAUSE WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT
  • 00:07:54.260 --> 00:07:56.070
  • CHRISTMAS AND GIVING
  • 00:07:56.070 --> 00:07:57.150
  • AND THE HALLMARK TV SHOWS,
  • 00:07:58.180 --> 00:08:01.200
  • WHICH I HAVE TO WATCH
  • 00:08:01.200 --> 00:08:02.230
  • EVERY DECEMBER.
  • 00:08:02.230 --> 00:08:03.270
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:08:03.270 --> 00:08:05.110
  • GOSH!
  • 00:08:05.110 --> 00:08:06.190
  • James: SOME OF THEM
  • 00:08:06.190 --> 00:08:07.220
  • OVER AND OVER.
  • 00:08:07.220 --> 00:08:08.270
  • Robert: OVER AND OVER!
  • 00:08:08.270 --> 00:08:10.030
  • BUT THEY'RE ALL ABOUT
  • 00:08:10.030 --> 00:08:11.100
  • THE JOY OF GIVING.
  • 00:08:11.100 --> 00:08:12.120
  • THAT'S WHAT THEY SAY,
  • 00:08:12.120 --> 00:08:13.140
  • CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT
  • 00:08:13.140 --> 00:08:14.160
  • THE JOY OF GIVING.
  • 00:08:14.160 --> 00:08:15.200
  • AS YOU'RE YOUNGER
  • 00:08:15.200 --> 00:08:16.260
  • YOU WANT TO SEE WHAT YOU GOT.
  • 00:08:16.260 --> 00:08:17.280
  • BUT THE OLDER YOU GET
  • 00:08:17.280 --> 00:08:19.010
  • THE MORE YOU MATURE,
  • 00:08:19.010 --> 00:08:20.040
  • IT IS JUST LIKE IN CHRIST
  • 00:08:20.040 --> 00:08:21.110
  • AS A BELIEVER,
  • 00:08:21.110 --> 00:08:22.170
  • YOU'RE WATCHING TO SEE
  • 00:08:22.170 --> 00:08:23.220
  • WHAT THE OTHER,
  • 00:08:23.220 --> 00:08:25.050
  • WHAT YOU GAVE THE OTHER PERSON
  • 00:08:25.050 --> 00:08:26.160
  • AND THE JOY THAT IT GIVES YOU
  • 00:08:26.230 --> 00:08:29.230
  • THAT YOU GAVE A GIFT.
  • 00:08:30.090 --> 00:08:33.090
  • SO ANYWAY, YOU ASKED ME
  • 00:08:33.090 --> 00:08:35.130
  • TO COME ON THE SHOW
  • 00:08:35.130 --> 00:08:36.260
  • AND TO TEACH.
  • 00:08:36.260 --> 00:08:38.030
  • AND YOU SAID,
  • 00:08:38.030 --> 00:08:39.080
  • "IF YOU COULD WRITE A BOOK
  • 00:08:39.080 --> 00:08:40.100
  • THAT WOULD HELP BECAUSE
  • 00:08:40.100 --> 00:08:41.150
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE LIKE TO READ
  • 00:08:41.150 --> 00:08:42.230
  • THE BOOK."
  • 00:08:42.230 --> 00:08:43.260
  • I'D NEVER WRITTEN A BOOK
  • 00:08:43.260 --> 00:08:45.020
  • AND I WENT AWAY
  • 00:08:45.020 --> 00:08:46.080
  • FOR ABOUT THREE DAYS AND
  • 00:08:46.080 --> 00:08:47.140
  • I SPOKE INTO A TAPE-RECORDER
  • 00:08:47.140 --> 00:08:49.040
  • FOR THREE DAYS, THE BOOK,
  • 00:08:49.040 --> 00:08:50.180
  • THE BLESSED LIFE .
  • 00:08:50.180 --> 00:08:51.290
  • OTHER BOOKS I'VE WORKED ON
  • 00:08:51.290 --> 00:08:53.040
  • FOR A YEAR --
  • 00:08:53.040 --> 00:08:54.130
  • OVER A YEAR SOMETIMES BUT
  • 00:08:54.130 --> 00:08:55.260
  • THE BLESSED LIFE HAS BECOME
  • 00:08:55.260 --> 00:08:57.290
  • AN INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER,
  • 00:08:57.290 --> 00:09:00.040
  • 40 SOMETHING LANGUAGES,
  • 00:09:00.040 --> 00:09:01.200
  • ALL OVER THE WORLD,
  • 00:09:01.200 --> 00:09:03.010
  • TAUGHT IN SEMINARIES
  • 00:09:03.010 --> 00:09:04.120
  • AND UNIVERSITIES.
  • 00:09:04.120 --> 00:09:05.220
  • HERE'S SOMETHING
  • 00:09:05.220 --> 00:09:07.030
  • PEOPLE DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:09:07.030 --> 00:09:08.110
  • WE GAVE ALL THE PROCEEDS
  • 00:09:08.110 --> 00:09:10.050
  • OF THE BLESSED LIFE AWAY.
  • 00:09:10.050 --> 00:09:11.290
  • GOD HAS SO BLESSED THAT BOOK,
  • 00:09:12.240 --> 00:09:15.240
  • THAT BOOK
  • 00:09:15.240 --> 00:09:17.010
  • WE GAVE EVERY BIT OF IT,
  • 00:09:17.010 --> 00:09:18.050
  • EVERY DIME OF IT,
  • 00:09:18.050 --> 00:09:19.130
  • AND I'M JUST GOING TO JUST --
  • 00:09:19.130 --> 00:09:20.230
  • I'VE NEVER EVEN
  • 00:09:20.230 --> 00:09:22.020
  • SAID THIS PUBLICALLY,
  • 00:09:22.020 --> 00:09:23.100
  • BUT I JUST WANT TO SAY IT
  • 00:09:23.100 --> 00:09:24.170
  • TO SHOW GOD'S GOODNESS.
  • 00:09:24.170 --> 00:09:25.280
  • THAT BOOK MAKES ABOUT
  • 00:09:25.280 --> 00:09:27.100
  • A HALF A MILLION DOLLARS
  • 00:09:27.100 --> 00:09:28.180
  • A YEAR.
  • 00:09:28.180 --> 00:09:30.000
  • SO MY WIFE AND I ARE ABLE
  • 00:09:30.000 --> 00:09:31.090
  • TO SOW A MILLION DOLLARS,
  • 00:09:31.090 --> 00:09:33.060
  • NEVER EVEN COMES TO US,
  • 00:09:33.060 --> 00:09:34.140
  • IT GOES STRAIGHT TO
  • 00:09:34.140 --> 00:09:35.230
  • THE CHURCH, EVERY TWO YEARS.
  • 00:09:35.230 --> 00:09:37.070
  • WE NEVER THOUGHT WE COULD DO
  • 00:09:37.070 --> 00:09:38.140
  • SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:09:38.140 --> 00:09:39.200
  • SO THAT STARTED RIGHT HERE
  • 00:09:39.200 --> 00:09:41.150
  • IN THIS STUDIO.
  • 00:09:41.150 --> 00:09:42.250
  • James: AND WE NEED TO SAY
  • 00:09:42.250 --> 00:09:44.010
  • TO ALL OF YOU WHO ARE WATCHING
  • 00:09:44.010 --> 00:09:45.080
  • RIGHT NOW WHO SUPPORT
  • 00:09:45.080 --> 00:09:46.130
  • THE LIFE TODAY OUTREACH
  • 00:09:46.130 --> 00:09:47.210
  • BECAUSE SEE, POINT ONE
  • 00:09:47.210 --> 00:09:49.130
  • IS NOT JUST GIVING WATER WELLS
  • 00:09:49.130 --> 00:09:50.270
  • OR FOOD TO PEOPLE,
  • 00:09:50.270 --> 00:09:52.070
  • POINT NUMBER ONE
  • 00:09:52.070 --> 00:09:53.150
  • IS REACHING OUT TO TOUCH YOU
  • 00:09:53.150 --> 00:09:54.210
  • WITH THE LOVE OF GOD
  • 00:09:54.210 --> 00:09:55.240
  • AND THE LIFE OF GOD AND
  • 00:09:55.240 --> 00:09:57.010
  • TO GIVE YOU SPIRITUAL WATER
  • 00:09:57.010 --> 00:09:58.070
  • AND SPIRITUAL FOOD
  • 00:09:58.070 --> 00:09:59.130
  • AND BLESS YOU.
  • 00:09:59.130 --> 00:10:00.180
  • AND INTRODUCE YOU
  • 00:10:00.180 --> 00:10:01.230
  • NOT TO JAMES AND BETTY OR
  • 00:10:01.230 --> 00:10:03.000
  • TO SOMEBODY WHO COMMUNICATES
  • 00:10:03.000 --> 00:10:04.040
  • OR EVEN TEACHES,
  • 00:10:04.040 --> 00:10:05.080
  • BUT TO MANY PEOPLE
  • 00:10:05.080 --> 00:10:06.150
  • WHO HAVE THE BLESSING
  • 00:10:06.150 --> 00:10:07.190
  • AND ANOINTING OF GOD,
  • 00:10:07.190 --> 00:10:08.210
  • SOME OF THEM YOU'VE HEARD OF,
  • 00:10:08.210 --> 00:10:09.280
  • SOME OF YOU HAVEN'T.
  • 00:10:09.280 --> 00:10:11.020
  • BUT TO BRING THEM TO SHARE.
  • 00:10:11.020 --> 00:10:12.020
  • SO YOU KEEP YOUR EYES
  • 00:10:12.020 --> 00:10:13.020
  • ON JESUS IN OTHERS.
  • 00:10:13.020 --> 00:10:14.030
  • AND YOU SEE JESUS
  • 00:10:14.030 --> 00:10:15.060
  • AND SEE HIM IN THEM
  • 00:10:15.060 --> 00:10:16.090
  • AND NOT JUST IN US AND OURS
  • 00:10:16.090 --> 00:10:17.110
  • AND OUR LITTLE GROUP.
  • 00:10:17.110 --> 00:10:18.140
  • YOU SEE THE GLORY OF GOD
  • 00:10:18.140 --> 00:10:19.200
  • IN HIS BODY.
  • 00:10:19.200 --> 00:10:20.220
  • WELL, YOU MADE POSSIBLE ALL
  • 00:10:20.220 --> 00:10:22.010
  • OF THESE INCREDIBLE VISITORS
  • 00:10:22.010 --> 00:10:24.170
  • THAT HAVE COME AND TESTIFY.
  • 00:10:24.170 --> 00:10:25.240
  • YOU MADE POSSIBLE ROBERT
  • 00:10:25.240 --> 00:10:27.030
  • SHARING THIS MESSAGE
  • 00:10:27.030 --> 00:10:28.090
  • AS HE SAID THAT'S GONE
  • 00:10:28.090 --> 00:10:29.160
  • AROUND THE WORLD
  • 00:10:29.160 --> 00:10:30.230
  • AND TOUCHED PEOPLE
  • 00:10:30.230 --> 00:10:31.290
  • BUT IT'S INSPIRED PEOPLE,
  • 00:10:31.290 --> 00:10:33.020
  • I'M GOING TO SAY TO GIVE
  • 00:10:33.020 --> 00:10:34.050
  • MILLIONS AND MILLIONS TO HELP
  • 00:10:34.050 --> 00:10:35.100
  • OTHER PEOPLE IN MISSIONS
  • 00:10:35.100 --> 00:10:36.140
  • AND GATEWAY DOES THAT
  • 00:10:36.140 --> 00:10:37.180
  • EVERY YEAR YOU GIVE
  • 00:10:37.180 --> 00:10:38.250
  • MANY MILLIONS OF DOLLARS
  • 00:10:38.250 --> 00:10:40.110
  • TO MISSION OUTREACHES.
  • 00:10:40.110 --> 00:10:41.240
  • THAT YOU NEVER APOLOGIZE
  • 00:10:44.240 --> 00:10:47.240
  • WHEN YOU ASK PEOPLE TO GIVE --
  • 00:10:47.240 --> 00:10:49.050
  • AND HERE'S WHY,
  • 00:10:49.050 --> 00:10:50.160
  • ACTUALLY DOING IT
  • 00:10:51.250 --> 00:10:53.110
  • BECAUSE THEY ARE GOING
  • 00:10:53.110 --> 00:10:54.180
  • TO BE BLESSED.
  • 00:10:54.180 --> 00:10:55.260
  • James: IT'S DOING IT FOR THEM.
  • 00:10:55.260 --> 00:10:57.010
  • IF YOU SHOW PEOPLE HOW TO LIVE
  • 00:10:57.010 --> 00:10:58.080
  • TO GIVE AND LOVE LIFE,
  • 00:10:58.080 --> 00:10:59.230
  • SHARING LIFE AND SHARING LOVE,
  • 00:10:59.230 --> 00:11:01.260
  • THAT IS THE MOST
  • 00:11:01.260 --> 00:11:03.120
  • FULL EXPRESSION OF LIFE.
  • 00:11:03.120 --> 00:11:04.290
  • Betty: NOTHING
  • 00:11:04.290 --> 00:11:06.100
  • BLESSES ME ANYMORE
  • 00:11:06.100 --> 00:11:07.180
  • THAN TO SEE THE CHILDREN
  • 00:11:07.180 --> 00:11:08.230
  • OVER IN THE MISSION FIELD
  • 00:11:08.230 --> 00:11:09.260
  • THAT WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO GIVE
  • 00:11:09.260 --> 00:11:11.060
  • WATER FOR LIFE OR FOOD
  • 00:11:11.060 --> 00:11:12.220
  • OR SHOES TO PUT ON THEIR FEET.
  • 00:11:12.220 --> 00:11:15.170
  • AND THOSE PRECIOUS
  • 00:11:15.170 --> 00:11:17.020
  • LITTLE SMILES
  • 00:11:17.020 --> 00:11:18.070
  • THAT COME ACROSS THEIR FACE,
  • 00:11:18.070 --> 00:11:19.120
  • THAT'S ALL THE REWARD
  • 00:11:19.120 --> 00:11:20.180
  • I NEED IN MY HEART.
  • 00:11:20.180 --> 00:11:21.220
  • DON'T YOU THINK
  • 00:11:21.220 --> 00:11:22.280
  • THAT THAT'S THE WAY GOD IS
  • 00:11:22.280 --> 00:11:24.050
  • WHEN HE BLESSES US?
  • 00:11:24.050 --> 00:11:25.110
  • GOD JUST SMILES BECAUSE
  • 00:11:25.110 --> 00:11:26.180
  • HE LOVES HIS CHILDREN, TOO.
  • 00:11:26.180 --> 00:11:27.260
  • Robert: AND HE SMILES
  • 00:11:27.260 --> 00:11:29.130
  • WHEN HE SEES HIS CHILDREN
  • 00:11:29.210 --> 00:11:32.210
  • BEING GENEROUS.
  • 00:11:32.210 --> 00:11:34.090
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:11:34.090 --> 00:11:35.220
  • WHEN YOU SEE YOUR CHILD
  • 00:11:35.220 --> 00:11:37.220
  • MAYBE WALK OVER TO THE CHILD
  • 00:11:37.220 --> 00:11:39.100
  • IN THE CORNER
  • 00:11:39.100 --> 00:11:40.170
  • THAT DOESN'T HAVE A TOY
  • 00:11:40.170 --> 00:11:42.080
  • AND GIVE HIM A TOY,
  • 00:11:42.080 --> 00:11:44.080
  • THAT JUST SO BLESSES YOU.
  • 00:11:44.080 --> 00:11:46.090
  • I WANT TO REWARD THAT CHILD.
  • 00:11:47.210 --> 00:11:50.070
  • AND THAT CHILD DIDN'T DO IT
  • 00:11:50.070 --> 00:11:51.150
  • TO GET REWARDED, BUT YOU WANT
  • 00:11:51.150 --> 00:11:52.180
  • THAT HEART BEHAVIOR.
  • 00:11:55.090 --> 00:11:56.160
  • SO IT'S THE SAME WAY WITH GOD.
  • 00:11:56.160 --> 00:11:58.010
  • GOD LOOKS AT US,
  • 00:11:58.010 --> 00:11:59.220
  • AND WE WERE ALL BORN
  • 00:11:59.220 --> 00:12:01.010
  • JUST LIKE OUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:12:01.010 --> 00:12:02.080
  • WE WERE BORN SELFISH,
  • 00:12:02.080 --> 00:12:03.150
  • AND WHEN WE MATURE
  • 00:12:03.150 --> 00:12:04.290
  • THEN WE WANT
  • 00:12:04.290 --> 00:12:06.160
  • TO BLESS SOMEONE ELSE.
  • 00:12:06.160 --> 00:12:08.190
  • AND GOD LOOKS DOWN AND SAYS,
  • 00:12:08.190 --> 00:12:10.010
  • "I'M GOING TO GIVE
  • 00:12:10.010 --> 00:12:11.100
  • THAT PERSON
  • 00:12:11.100 --> 00:12:12.190
  • MORE RESOURCES BECAUSE
  • 00:12:12.190 --> 00:12:13.260
  • I CAN TRUST HIM OR HER."
  • 00:12:13.260 --> 00:12:15.020
  • SO THE BLESSED LIFE COMES OUT
  • 00:12:15.020 --> 00:12:17.050
  • AND GOD'S USED IT
  • 00:12:17.050 --> 00:12:18.170
  • ALL OVER THE WORLD NOW.
  • 00:12:18.170 --> 00:12:19.240
  • I HAVE BEEN WANTING
  • 00:12:19.240 --> 00:12:20.290
  • TO WRITE THE SEQUEL
  • 00:12:20.290 --> 00:12:22.150
  • TO THE BLESSED LIFE PART TWO,
  • 00:12:22.150 --> 00:12:24.210
  • THE COMPANION BOOK
  • 00:12:24.210 --> 00:12:26.060
  • FOR 15 YEARS NOW.
  • 00:12:26.060 --> 00:12:27.200
  • AND NOW GOD'S RELEASED ME.
  • 00:12:27.200 --> 00:12:29.100
  • SO I CALL IT BEYOND BLESSED .
  • 00:12:29.100 --> 00:12:31.070
  • BUT HERE'S WHAT IT IS.
  • 00:12:31.070 --> 00:12:32.170
  • IT'S WHEN I AM GENEROUS
  • 00:12:32.170 --> 00:12:35.040
  • AND THEN GOD REWARDS ME
  • 00:12:35.040 --> 00:12:36.170
  • FOR THAT GENEROSITY,
  • 00:12:36.170 --> 00:12:37.230
  • REWARDS MY HEART,
  • 00:12:37.230 --> 00:12:38.230
  • MY HEART GIVING,
  • 00:12:38.230 --> 00:12:39.260
  • THE RIGHT MOTIVATION,
  • 00:12:39.260 --> 00:12:41.000
  • THEN WHAT DO I DO WITH THAT?
  • 00:12:41.000 --> 00:12:43.170
  • HOW DO I STEWARD
  • 00:12:43.170 --> 00:12:45.050
  • WHAT GOD'S GIVEN ME NOW?
  • 00:12:45.050 --> 00:12:46.260
  • AND IF I STEWARD THAT WELL,
  • 00:12:46.260 --> 00:12:49.010
  • THEN HE CAN GIVE ME MORE.
  • 00:12:49.010 --> 00:12:51.000
  • IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT,
  • 00:12:51.000 --> 00:12:52.080
  • WHEN I WAS IN COLLEGE
  • 00:12:52.080 --> 00:12:53.200
  • I TOOK A BUSINESS CLASS
  • 00:12:53.200 --> 00:12:55.070
  • AND THE BIG DEAL OF BUSINESS
  • 00:12:55.070 --> 00:12:56.260
  • IS SUPPLY AND DEMAND.
  • 00:12:56.260 --> 00:12:58.260
  • I REMEMBER THEY TAUGHT US
  • 00:12:58.260 --> 00:13:00.070
  • TO BUY LOW AND SELL HIGH.
  • 00:13:00.070 --> 00:13:02.170
  • I REMEMBER BUYING THE BOOK
  • 00:13:02.170 --> 00:13:04.050
  • THOUGH FOR $50
  • 00:13:04.050 --> 00:13:05.090
  • AND SELLING IT BACK TO THEM
  • 00:13:05.090 --> 00:13:06.170
  • FOR $4.
  • 00:13:06.170 --> 00:13:07.210
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:13:07.210 --> 00:13:08.260
  • SO I DIDN'T LEARN --
  • 00:13:08.260 --> 00:13:09.290
  • APPARENTLY I DIDN'T LEARN
  • 00:13:09.290 --> 00:13:11.030
  • WHAT THEY WERE TRYING
  • 00:13:11.030 --> 00:13:12.080
  • TO TEACH ME IN THE CLASS.
  • 00:13:12.080 --> 00:13:13.120
  • BUT THE POINT IS
  • 00:13:13.120 --> 00:13:14.220
  • IT IS SUPPLY AND DEMAND.
  • 00:13:14.220 --> 00:13:16.010
  • SO GOD IS OVER HERE
  • 00:13:16.010 --> 00:13:17.140
  • WITH ALL THE SUPPLY.
  • 00:13:17.140 --> 00:13:19.000
  • HE OWNS EVERYTHING.
  • 00:13:19.000 --> 00:13:20.120
  • HERE ARE THE PEOPLE IN AFRICA
  • 00:13:20.120 --> 00:13:22.040
  • AND THESE OTHER COUNTRIES
  • 00:13:22.040 --> 00:13:23.130
  • THAT NEED WATER.
  • 00:13:23.130 --> 00:13:24.210
  • THERE'S THE DEMAND.
  • 00:13:24.210 --> 00:13:25.270
  • IT'S HUGE! HUGE!
  • 00:13:25.270 --> 00:13:27.290
  • BUT WHAT'S IN-BETWEEN?
  • 00:13:27.290 --> 00:13:29.200
  • WHAT'S IN-BETWEEN THE SUPPLY,
  • 00:13:29.200 --> 00:13:31.130
  • ALL THE SUPPLY
  • 00:13:31.130 --> 00:13:32.200
  • AND THIS INCREDIBLE DEMAND?
  • 00:13:32.200 --> 00:13:34.140
  • I AM. YOU ARE.
  • 00:13:34.170 --> 00:13:37.170
  • THE PEOPLE WATCHING ARE.
  • 00:13:37.170 --> 00:13:39.100
  • SO GOD'S GOT ALL THE SUPPLY
  • 00:13:39.100 --> 00:13:41.170
  • SO HE GIVES
  • 00:13:41.170 --> 00:13:42.280
  • SOME RESOURCES TO ME
  • 00:13:42.280 --> 00:13:44.240
  • AND IF IT STOPS RIGHT THERE,
  • 00:13:44.240 --> 00:13:47.050
  • IT DIDN'T GET TO THE DEMAND.
  • 00:13:47.050 --> 00:13:49.140
  • James: IT SHORT CIRCUITS
  • 00:13:49.140 --> 00:13:50.290
  • THE CURRENT AND THE CONDUCTOR.
  • 00:13:50.290 --> 00:13:52.250
  • FROM UNCLEAN WATER,
  • 00:13:54.100 --> 00:13:55.270
  • THAT WAS GOD'S PURPOSE WAS
  • 00:13:55.270 --> 00:13:57.060
  • TO GET --
  • 00:13:57.060 --> 00:13:58.130
  • BUT IF HE CAN GIVE IT TO ME
  • 00:13:58.130 --> 00:13:59.240
  • TO THIS PERSON WHO IS GOING
  • 00:14:02.090 --> 00:14:03.250
  • TO BE ABLE TO BE ALIVE
  • 00:14:03.250 --> 00:14:05.110
  • TO ACTUALLY HEAR
  • 00:14:05.110 --> 00:14:06.190
  • THE EVANGELIST PREACH
  • 00:14:06.190 --> 00:14:07.240
  • THE GOSPEL, AND THEN
  • 00:14:07.240 --> 00:14:08.280
  • HAVE ETERNAL LIFE, TOO,
  • 00:14:08.280 --> 00:14:10.040
  • THEN HE SAYS, "WELL,
  • 00:14:10.040 --> 00:14:11.100
  • I CAN GIVE HIM MORE.
  • 00:14:11.100 --> 00:14:12.150
  • AND THEN I CAN GIVE HIM MORE."
  • 00:14:12.150 --> 00:14:13.270
  • AND THAT'S WHAT'S HAPPENED
  • 00:14:13.270 --> 00:14:15.040
  • WITH ME PERSONALLY.
  • 00:14:15.040 --> 00:14:16.050
  • THAT'S WHAT'S HAPPENED
  • 00:14:16.050 --> 00:14:17.110
  • WITH GATEWAY CHURCH
  • 00:14:17.110 --> 00:14:18.160
  • IS GOD HAS SAID,
  • 00:14:18.160 --> 00:14:19.180
  • "OH WAIT A MINUTE!
  • 00:14:19.180 --> 00:14:20.230
  • THEY WILL NOT ONLY BE GENEROUS
  • 00:14:20.230 --> 00:14:21.260
  • BUT THEY WILL STEWARD WELL
  • 00:14:21.260 --> 00:14:23.000
  • WHAT I GIVE THEM."
  • 00:14:23.000 --> 00:14:24.200
  • SO I CALL THE BOOK
  • 00:14:24.200 --> 00:14:25.280
  • THE BLESSED LIFE ,
  • 00:14:25.280 --> 00:14:27.010
  • NOT THE BLESSED POCKET BOOK
  • 00:14:27.010 --> 00:14:28.070
  • OR WALLET BECAUSE
  • 00:14:28.070 --> 00:14:29.100
  • IT IS NOT JUST ABOUT FINANCES,
  • 00:14:29.100 --> 00:14:30.180
  • BUT A BLESSED LIFE
  • 00:14:30.180 --> 00:14:32.110
  • WALKS ON TWO LEGS.
  • 00:14:32.110 --> 00:14:34.100
  • AND SO ONE LEG IS GENEROSITY
  • 00:14:34.100 --> 00:14:36.170
  • BUT THE OTHER LEG
  • 00:14:36.170 --> 00:14:37.290
  • IS STEWARDSHIP.
  • 00:14:37.290 --> 00:14:39.030
  • I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS A CHILD
  • 00:14:39.030 --> 00:14:40.250
  • JUST SEEING SOME COMMERCIAL
  • 00:14:40.250 --> 00:14:42.120
  • -- NOT COMMERCIAL,
  • 00:14:42.120 --> 00:14:43.250
  • A CARTOON WHERE THIS GUY HAD
  • 00:14:43.250 --> 00:14:46.090
  • ONE FOOT NAILED TO THE FLOOR
  • 00:14:46.090 --> 00:14:48.120
  • AND SO HE WAS JUST
  • 00:14:48.120 --> 00:14:49.180
  • GOING AROUND IN CIRCLES.
  • 00:14:49.180 --> 00:14:50.240
  • FOR SOME REASON,
  • 00:14:50.240 --> 00:14:51.280
  • I REMEMBER THAT.
  • 00:14:51.280 --> 00:14:53.080
  • THAT'S WHAT I FEEL LIKE IT IS.
  • 00:14:53.080 --> 00:14:54.140
  • IF YOU'RE JUST GENEROUS
  • 00:14:54.140 --> 00:14:55.190
  • BUT YOU'RE NOT A GOOD STEWARD
  • 00:14:55.190 --> 00:14:58.010
  • YOU'RE JUST GOING AROUND
  • 00:14:58.010 --> 00:14:59.090
  • IN CIRCLES.
  • 00:14:59.090 --> 00:15:00.220
  • SO THINK ABOUT IT THIS WAY,
  • 00:15:00.220 --> 00:15:02.010
  • GOD HAS ALL THE RESOURCES.
  • 00:15:02.010 --> 00:15:03.050
  • HE HAS NO PROBLEM
  • 00:15:03.050 --> 00:15:04.110
  • WITH RESOURCES,
  • 00:15:04.110 --> 00:15:05.160
  • HE'S GOT ALL OF THEM.
  • 00:15:05.160 --> 00:15:06.240
  • SO IF A PERSON IS GENEROUS
  • 00:15:06.240 --> 00:15:08.010
  • BUT NOT A GOOD STEWARD,
  • 00:15:08.010 --> 00:15:09.090
  • HE CAN'T REALLY GIVE HIM
  • 00:15:09.090 --> 00:15:10.200
  • GREAT RESOURCES
  • 00:15:10.200 --> 00:15:12.000
  • OR HER GREAT RESOURCES
  • 00:15:12.000 --> 00:15:13.180
  • BECAUSE THE PERSON
  • 00:15:13.180 --> 00:15:15.010
  • WON'T STEWARD THEM WELL.
  • 00:15:15.010 --> 00:15:16.090
  • BUT IF A PERSON IS A STEWARD
  • 00:15:16.090 --> 00:15:17.200
  • BUT NOT GENEROUS,
  • 00:15:17.200 --> 00:15:19.020
  • WHY WOULD HE GIVE THAT PERSON
  • 00:15:19.020 --> 00:15:20.110
  • GREAT RESOURCES?
  • 00:15:20.110 --> 00:15:21.170
  • WE CALL THAT PERSON "TIGHT"
  • 00:15:21.170 --> 00:15:23.090
  • BY THE WAY.
  • 00:15:23.090 --> 00:15:24.210
  • BUT WHY WOULD HE GIVE
  • 00:15:24.210 --> 00:15:25.260
  • THAT PERSON GREAT RESOURCES
  • 00:15:25.260 --> 00:15:27.000
  • BECAUSE HE STILL CAN'T GET IT
  • 00:15:27.000 --> 00:15:28.050
  • TO THE MISSION FIELD,
  • 00:15:28.050 --> 00:15:29.090
  • HE CAN'T GET IT
  • 00:15:29.090 --> 00:15:30.130
  • TO THE LOCAL CHURCH,
  • 00:15:30.130 --> 00:15:31.180
  • HE CAN'T GET IT
  • 00:15:31.180 --> 00:15:32.190
  • TO THE MISSIONARY
  • 00:15:32.190 --> 00:15:33.220
  • WHO NEEDS TO TAKE THE GOSPEL?
  • 00:15:33.220 --> 00:15:34.270
  • SO YOU CAN'T LIVE
  • 00:15:34.270 --> 00:15:36.020
  • THE BLESSED LIFE
  • 00:15:36.020 --> 00:15:37.090
  • WITHOUT BOTH LEGS.
  • 00:15:37.090 --> 00:15:38.160
  • YOU HAVE TO BE GENEROUS
  • 00:15:38.160 --> 00:15:40.020
  • AND YOU HAVE TO BE
  • 00:15:40.020 --> 00:15:41.160
  • A GOOD STEWARD.
  • 00:15:41.160 --> 00:15:42.200
  • I THINK
  • 00:15:42.200 --> 00:15:43.260
  • WHAT THE BLESSED LIFE DID
  • 00:15:43.260 --> 00:15:45.020
  • WAS IT MOTIVATED PEOPLE
  • 00:15:45.020 --> 00:15:47.040
  • TO BE GENEROUS
  • 00:15:47.040 --> 00:15:48.260
  • FOR THE RIGHT REASON.
  • 00:15:48.260 --> 00:15:50.060
  • AND THIS IS THE KEY.
  • 00:15:50.060 --> 00:15:51.210
  • I'M SO EXCITED.
  • 00:15:51.210 --> 00:15:52.260
  • I THINK THIS IS ONE
  • 00:15:52.260 --> 00:15:54.150
  • OF THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOKS
  • 00:15:54.150 --> 00:15:55.240
  • I'LL EVER WRITE IN MY LIFE
  • 00:15:55.240 --> 00:15:57.010
  • BECAUSE I BELIEVE
  • 00:15:57.010 --> 00:15:59.050
  • GOD'S GIVEN ME THE ABILITY
  • 00:15:59.050 --> 00:16:00.180
  • TO MOTIVATE PEOPLE
  • 00:16:00.180 --> 00:16:02.060
  • TO BE A GOOD STEWARD.
  • 00:16:02.060 --> 00:16:04.020
  • IF THEY'LL BE A GOOD STEWARD,
  • 00:16:04.020 --> 00:16:05.270
  • GOD COULD ENTRUST THEM
  • 00:16:05.270 --> 00:16:07.240
  • WITH TREMENDOUS RESOURCES
  • 00:16:07.240 --> 00:16:10.010
  • TO BE ABLE TO HELP
  • 00:16:10.010 --> 00:16:11.230
  • MANY, MANY PEOPLE.
  • 00:16:11.230 --> 00:16:13.030
  • James: WHEN YOU SHOWED PEOPLE
  • 00:16:13.030 --> 00:16:14.070
  • THE JOY OF GIVING, THAT JUST
  • 00:16:14.070 --> 00:16:15.150
  • RELEASED PEOPLE TO A JOY
  • 00:16:15.150 --> 00:16:17.160
  • THAT THEY ABSOLUTELY
  • 00:16:17.160 --> 00:16:18.240
  • HAD NOT EXPERIENCED
  • 00:16:18.240 --> 00:16:19.280
  • OR DIDN'T EVEN KNOW
  • 00:16:19.280 --> 00:16:21.060
  • THE WORLD TRAINS US WRONG
  • 00:16:22.140 --> 00:16:23.160
  • AND A LOT OF TIMES
  • 00:16:23.160 --> 00:16:24.220
  • RELIGION TRAINS US WRONG
  • 00:16:24.220 --> 00:16:25.230
  • AND EVEN PASTORS
  • 00:16:25.230 --> 00:16:26.260
  • TRAIN US WRONG.
  • 00:16:26.260 --> 00:16:28.000
  • BUT YOU ALSO SAID
  • 00:16:29.100 --> 00:16:30.160
  • TAKE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:16:30.160 --> 00:16:32.030
  • EVEN IN THE BLESSED LIFE ,
  • 00:16:32.030 --> 00:16:33.100
  • TAKE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:16:33.100 --> 00:16:34.270
  • FOR TAKING CARE OF THINGS
  • 00:16:34.270 --> 00:16:36.100
  • THAT ARE BAD PRACTICES
  • 00:16:36.100 --> 00:16:37.200
  • AND HABITS.
  • 00:16:37.200 --> 00:16:38.240
  • YOU COVER THAT IN THIS BOOK.
  • 00:16:38.240 --> 00:16:39.290
  • ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:16:39.290 --> 00:16:41.060
  • I WANT TO ASK YOU TO SIMPLY
  • 00:16:41.060 --> 00:16:42.140
  • TELL THIS AUDIENCE AND OUR
  • 00:16:42.140 --> 00:16:43.180
  • VIEWERS BECAUSE YOU'VE BEEN
  • 00:16:43.180 --> 00:16:44.260
  • TO THE MISSION FIELD.
  • 00:16:44.260 --> 00:16:46.060
  • YOU KNOW THE DEVOTION
  • 00:16:46.060 --> 00:16:47.160
  • OF THE MISSIONARIES.
  • 00:16:47.160 --> 00:16:48.210
  • YOU KNOW THEY'VE LEFT IT ALL
  • 00:16:48.210 --> 00:16:49.290
  • FOR A HEAVENLY CAUSE.
  • 00:16:49.290 --> 00:16:51.090
  • IS THE MISSION OUTREACH
  • 00:16:51.090 --> 00:16:53.290
  • THAT WE DO ON LIFE TODAY
  • 00:16:53.290 --> 00:16:55.200
  • AND LIFE OUTREACH ,
  • 00:16:55.200 --> 00:16:57.000
  • IS IT EFFECTIVE
  • 00:16:57.000 --> 00:16:58.070
  • AND DOES THE WATER WELL
  • 00:16:58.070 --> 00:17:00.060
  • IN A VILLAGE CHANGE
  • 00:17:00.060 --> 00:17:01.160
  • EVERYTHING FOR A VILLAGE
  • 00:17:01.160 --> 00:17:02.240
  • AND OPEN THE WAY
  • 00:17:02.240 --> 00:17:04.000
  • FOR THE GOSPEL?
  • 00:17:04.000 --> 00:17:05.020
  • Robert: IT IS THE MOST
  • 00:17:06.100 --> 00:17:08.250
  • EFFECTIVE AND EFFICIENT
  • 00:17:09.220 --> 00:17:12.220
  • I'VE EVER SEEN.
  • 00:17:14.040 --> 00:17:15.100
  • AND I'M NOT SAYING THAT
  • 00:17:15.100 --> 00:17:16.160
  • TO TRY TO PUT DOWN
  • 00:17:16.160 --> 00:17:17.190
  • ANOTHER ONE AT ALL BECAUSE
  • 00:17:17.190 --> 00:17:18.240
  • THERE ARE MANY OUT THERE.
  • 00:17:18.240 --> 00:17:19.260
  • YOU KNOW THAT
  • 00:17:19.260 --> 00:17:20.290
  • AND YOU SUPPORT OTHER ONES.
  • 00:17:20.290 --> 00:17:22.020
  • SO I'M NOT SAYING THAT
  • 00:17:22.020 --> 00:17:23.080
  • IN A COMPARATIVE WAY
  • 00:17:23.080 --> 00:17:24.180
  • BUT A COMMENDABLE WAY.
  • 00:17:24.180 --> 00:17:26.020
  • I WANT TO COMMEND
  • 00:17:26.020 --> 00:17:27.090
  • LIFE OUTREACH
  • 00:17:27.090 --> 00:17:28.160
  • BECAUSE I'VE BEEN ON THE FIELD
  • 00:17:28.160 --> 00:17:30.150
  • AND I'VE SEEN HOW FAR
  • 00:17:30.150 --> 00:17:32.150
  • A DOLLAR GOES.
  • 00:17:32.150 --> 00:17:33.230
  • AND I'VE SEEN HOW GOOD
  • 00:17:33.230 --> 00:17:35.000
  • OF STEWARDS YOU ARE, BUT ALSO
  • 00:17:35.000 --> 00:17:37.140
  • THE MISSIONARIES YOU SUPPORT.
  • 00:17:37.140 --> 00:17:39.020
  • AND YOU HAVE FOUND,
  • 00:17:39.020 --> 00:17:40.140
  • WHAT I WOULD CALL
  • 00:17:40.140 --> 00:17:42.000
  • INDIGENOUS APOSTLES,
  • 00:17:42.000 --> 00:17:44.060
  • THE APOSTLES IN THE NATION
  • 00:17:44.060 --> 00:17:46.160
  • THAT KNOW HOW TO DO IT.
  • 00:17:46.160 --> 00:17:47.260
  • AND THE OTHER THING
  • 00:17:47.260 --> 00:17:49.050
  • THAT IS AMAZING IS
  • 00:17:49.050 --> 00:17:50.140
  • IT IS NOT JUST BRINGING
  • 00:17:50.140 --> 00:17:51.190
  • THAT CLEAN WATER
  • 00:17:51.190 --> 00:17:52.200
  • AND THAT CLEAN FOOD
  • 00:17:52.200 --> 00:17:53.220
  • BUT IT IS GETTING
  • 00:17:53.220 --> 00:17:54.290
  • THE KIDS IN SCHOOL
  • 00:17:54.290 --> 00:17:56.050
  • SO THEY'LL BE EDUCATED.
  • 00:17:56.050 --> 00:17:57.100
  • THEN IT IS BRINGING IN,
  • 00:17:57.100 --> 00:17:58.170
  • AFTER YOU DO ALL THAT
  • 00:17:58.170 --> 00:17:59.230
  • FOR THE FAMILY,
  • 00:17:59.230 --> 00:18:00.290
  • THEN THE EVANGELIST COMES IN
  • 00:18:00.290 --> 00:18:02.080
  • WITH THE GOSPEL MESSAGE
  • 00:18:02.080 --> 00:18:03.130
  • AND THEY'RE OPEN TO YOU
  • 00:18:03.130 --> 00:18:04.180
  • BECAUSE YOU GAVE
  • 00:18:04.180 --> 00:18:05.250
  • A CUP OF WATER IN JESUS' NAME.
  • 00:18:05.250 --> 00:18:07.090
  • IT'S BECAUSE
  • 00:18:07.090 --> 00:18:08.150
  • YOU SHOWED THEM LIFE
  • 00:18:08.150 --> 00:18:09.240
  • AND THEY JUST SHOW UP
  • 00:18:09.240 --> 00:18:11.030
  • BY THE THOUSANDS.
  • 00:18:11.030 --> 00:18:12.090
  • AND I'VE SEEN IT!
  • 00:18:12.090 --> 00:18:13.120
  • BY THE THOUSANDS --
  • 00:18:13.120 --> 00:18:14.180
  • AND ACCEPT CHRIST
  • 00:18:14.180 --> 00:18:15.270
  • AS THEIR SAVIOR.
  • 00:18:15.270 --> 00:18:17.010
  • SO I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW
  • 00:18:17.010 --> 00:18:18.070
  • THAT NOT ONLY
  • 00:18:18.070 --> 00:18:19.180
  • ARE PEOPLE'S LIVES
  • 00:18:19.180 --> 00:18:20.230
  • PHYSICALLY BEING SAVED
  • 00:18:20.230 --> 00:18:22.040
  • BUT THEY'RE SPIRITUALLY
  • 00:18:22.040 --> 00:18:23.130
  • BEING SAVED,
  • 00:18:23.130 --> 00:18:24.150
  • THEY'RE BEING BORN AGAIN
  • 00:18:24.150 --> 00:18:25.290
  • INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:18:25.290 --> 00:18:27.060
  • THEY'RE COMING
  • 00:18:27.060 --> 00:18:28.120
  • INTO ETERNAL LIFE.
  • 00:18:28.120 --> 00:18:29.120
  • WE'RE GOING TO MEET THEM
  • 00:18:29.120 --> 00:18:30.190
  • IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:18:30.190 --> 00:18:31.220
  • IN LUKE 16 IT SAYS
  • 00:18:31.220 --> 00:18:33.060
  • TO BE FAITHFUL WITH YOUR MONEY
  • 00:18:33.060 --> 00:18:35.220
  • AND WHEN YOU ARE
  • 00:18:35.220 --> 00:18:37.020
  • THOSE WHO HAVE FAILED,
  • 00:18:37.020 --> 00:18:38.200
  • THAT WORD FAILED MEANS DIE,
  • 00:18:38.200 --> 00:18:40.210
  • THOSE WHO HAVE DIED
  • 00:18:40.210 --> 00:18:42.030
  • ARE GOING TO WELCOME YOU
  • 00:18:42.030 --> 00:18:44.000
  • INTO YOUR EVERLASTING HOME.
  • 00:18:44.000 --> 00:18:45.180
  • NOW YOU THINK ABOUT THE PEOPLE
  • 00:18:45.180 --> 00:18:47.010
  • THAT WATCH LIFE TODAY
  • 00:18:47.010 --> 00:18:49.160
  • AND SHARE LIFE
  • 00:18:49.160 --> 00:18:50.290
  • WITH OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:18:50.290 --> 00:18:52.050
  • WHEN YOU WALK INTO HEAVEN --
  • 00:18:52.050 --> 00:18:53.280
  • I WANT TO SAY IT
  • 00:18:53.280 --> 00:18:55.030
  • DIRECTLY TO YOU --
  • 00:18:55.030 --> 00:18:56.070
  • WHEN YOU WALK INTO HEAVEN,
  • 00:18:56.070 --> 00:18:57.120
  • THERE ARE GOING TO BE
  • 00:18:57.120 --> 00:18:58.140
  • ROWS OF PEOPLE
  • 00:18:58.140 --> 00:19:00.220
  • THAT ARE GOING TO BE
  • 00:19:00.220 --> 00:19:01.280
  • APPLAUDING YOU AND SAYING,
  • 00:19:01.280 --> 00:19:03.230
  • "BECAUSE YOU GAVE,
  • 00:19:03.230 --> 00:19:05.170
  • THESE ARE MY CHILDREN
  • 00:19:05.170 --> 00:19:06.280
  • THAT ARE STILL ALIVE
  • 00:19:06.280 --> 00:19:08.160
  • THAT THEN HEARD THE GOSPEL."
  • 00:19:08.160 --> 00:19:10.130
  • THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:19:10.130 --> 00:19:11.180
  • WE'VE GOT TO CATCH.
  • 00:19:11.180 --> 00:19:12.280
  • YES, WE NEED TO SEE
  • 00:19:12.280 --> 00:19:14.190
  • THE PHYSICAL PLIGHT
  • 00:19:14.190 --> 00:19:16.040
  • BECAUSE IF THEY'RE NOT ALIVE
  • 00:19:16.040 --> 00:19:17.090
  • WE CAN'T PREACH
  • 00:19:17.090 --> 00:19:18.130
  • THE GOSPEL TO THEM.
  • 00:19:18.130 --> 00:19:19.160
  • BUT I'VE SEEN LIFE OUTREACH
  • 00:19:19.160 --> 00:19:21.010
  • BE EXACTLY THAT, OUTREACH --
  • 00:19:21.010 --> 00:19:23.090
  • REACH OUT,
  • 00:19:23.090 --> 00:19:24.210
  • SAVE THEIR LIVES PHYSICALLY
  • 00:19:24.210 --> 00:19:25.250
  • AND THEN GO IN
  • 00:19:25.250 --> 00:19:27.000
  • AND BRING THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:19:27.000 --> 00:19:28.070
  • IT IS INCREDIBLE TO ME.
  • 00:19:28.070 --> 00:19:29.110
  • LET ME TELL YOU
  • 00:19:30.170 --> 00:19:31.180
  • WHAT WE'RE DOING RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:19:31.180 --> 00:19:32.230
  • WE'RE GOING TO START RIGHT
  • 00:19:32.230 --> 00:19:34.050
  • NOW RAISING THE FUNDS
  • 00:19:34.050 --> 00:19:35.100
  • TO DRILL WATER WELLS
  • 00:19:35.100 --> 00:19:36.130
  • THINKING ABOUT
  • 00:19:36.130 --> 00:19:37.140
  • WHAT WE CAN DO
  • 00:19:37.140 --> 00:19:38.160
  • THAT TOTALLY CHANGES
  • 00:19:38.160 --> 00:19:39.190
  • EVERYTHING FOR SOMEONE.
  • 00:19:39.190 --> 00:19:40.210
  • AND WHEN YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:19:40.210 --> 00:19:41.220
  • A PERFECT CURE, JUST A CUP
  • 00:19:41.220 --> 00:19:42.240
  • OF WATER, "YOU GIVE
  • 00:19:42.240 --> 00:19:44.070
  • JUST A CUP OF WATER IN MY NAME
  • 00:19:44.070 --> 00:19:46.040
  • YOU WON'T LOSE YOUR REWARD."
  • 00:19:46.040 --> 00:19:48.000
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT GOD
  • 00:19:48.000 --> 00:19:49.040
  • IS THINKING WHEN HE LOOKS
  • 00:19:49.040 --> 00:19:50.120
  • AT YOU AND SAYS, "I'M NOT
  • 00:19:50.120 --> 00:19:51.210
  • ONLY GOING TO BLESS YOU
  • 00:19:51.210 --> 00:19:52.240
  • I WANT TO BLESS THROUGH YOU?
  • 00:19:52.240 --> 00:19:53.270
  • AS I BLESS THROUGH YOU
  • 00:19:53.270 --> 00:19:55.030
  • YOU'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO BE
  • 00:19:55.030 --> 00:19:56.080
  • A BLESSING AS LONG AS YOU LIVE
  • 00:19:56.080 --> 00:19:57.110
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE FILLED
  • 00:19:57.110 --> 00:19:58.150
  • WITH LIFE AND LOVE,
  • 00:19:58.150 --> 00:20:00.060
  • I'LL TELL YOU WHAT LET'S DO.
  • 00:20:00.060 --> 00:20:01.240
  • I WANT TO ASK
  • 00:20:01.240 --> 00:20:02.260
  • EVERY ONE OF YOU TODAY
  • 00:20:02.260 --> 00:20:03.280
  • TO MAKE A GIFT.
  • 00:20:03.280 --> 00:20:05.000
  • THE WELLS COST $4800; I THINK
  • 00:20:05.000 --> 00:20:06.170
  • WE'VE BEEN TOLD THAT RIGHT NOW
  • 00:20:08.100 --> 00:20:10.000
  • THEY'RE STRETCHING IT
  • 00:20:10.000 --> 00:20:11.070
  • TO MAKE THAT WORK.
  • 00:20:11.070 --> 00:20:12.110
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:20:12.110 --> 00:20:13.160
  • COSTS ARE GOING UP.
  • 00:20:13.160 --> 00:20:14.200
  • DIFFICULTY.
