  • 00:22:27.000 --> 00:22:28.290
  • Stir that Kool-aid up.
  • 00:22:32.120 --> 00:22:34.160
  • And then watch this.
  • 00:22:35.080 --> 00:22:36.260

  • Did you taste?
  • 00:22:40.070 --> 00:22:42.030

  • Why'd you stir it up?
  • 00:23:13.100 --> 00:23:15.060
  • Because you had to agitate
  • 00:23:15.260 --> 00:23:18.040
  • that aid that was poured into the Kool-aid.
  • 00:23:19.090 --> 00:23:22.150
  • So that the entire content
  • 00:23:23.020 --> 00:23:25.060
  • of that collard green pot would be sweet.
  • 00:23:25.060 --> 00:23:28.110
  • Without stirring it it would stay to the bottom.
  • 00:23:28.290 --> 00:23:31.210

  • 00:23:31.210 --> 00:23:34.160
  • in there until you get almost to the bottom of it.
  • 00:23:34.160 --> 00:23:38.130
  • And unfortunately, that's what's going on
  • 00:23:41.160 --> 00:23:44.240
  • with the believers life.
  • 00:23:44.240 --> 00:23:46.220
  • God has already poured into you.
  • 00:23:47.110 --> 00:23:50.230
