  • Now you gotta confess the word,
  • 00:04:54.020 --> 00:04:56.110
  • but there's a corresponding action
  • 00:04:56.110 --> 00:04:59.260
  • that must accompany the word that you confess.
  • 00:05:02.130 --> 00:05:06.090
  • It's amazing!
  • 00:05:07.270 --> 00:05:09.170

  • 00:06:46.070 --> 00:06:49.120
  • that it is the Pastors responsibility
  • 00:06:49.120 --> 00:06:52.100
  • to know the state of the flock.
