  • RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:09:24.280 --> 00:09:25.120

  • 00:10:20.090 --> 00:10:20.210
  • SHE WANTS THAT FROM THE MAN.
  • 00:10:21.250 --> 00:10:24.250

  • SHE WANTS HIM TO KNOW HOW TO
  • 00:11:06.210 --> 00:11:09.030

  • THIS IS WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO HIM
  • 00:12:07.260 --> 00:12:09.270
  • BECAUSE OUR VALUES ARE WHAT IS
  • 00:12:10.080 --> 00:12:13.080
  • IMPORTANT TO US, WHAT WE STAND
  • 00:12:13.080 --> 00:12:15.110
  • FOR, WHAT WE ARE WILLING TO PAY
  • 00:12:15.110 --> 00:12:17.090
  • THE PRICE FOR WHAT WE DIE FOR,
  • 00:12:17.090 --> 00:12:19.050
  • THOSE ARE OUR VALUES.
  • 00:12:19.050 --> 00:12:21.120
  • HIS ACTIONS ARE CONSISTENT TO
  • 00:12:21.140 --> 00:12:24.140
  • WHAT HE CLAIMS TO BE MOST
  • 00:12:24.140 --> 00:12:25.200
  • IMPORTANT TO HIM IN LIFE.
  • 00:12:25.200 --> 00:12:28.080
  • HSHE WANTS CONSISTENCY AND
  • 00:12:31.040 --> 00:12:34.040
  • STRENGTH.
  • 00:12:34.040 --> 00:12:34.150
  • I DON'T MEAN THAT MACHO STRENGTH
  • 00:12:34.150 --> 00:12:37.120
  • WHERE HE FLEXES HIS MUSCLES.
  • 00:12:38.290 --> 00:12:41.290
  • BECAUSE TRUE STRENGTH AFFORDS A
  • 00:12:41.290 --> 00:12:44.230
  • MAN TO BE GENTLE AND KIND.
  • 00:12:44.240 --> 00:12:47.240
  • SO HIS STRENGTH IS DEMONSTRATED
  • 00:12:47.240 --> 00:12:50.070
  • IN HIS GENTLENESS.
  • 00:12:50.270 --> 00:12:53.270
  • AND PROVERBS SAYS A MAN'S
  • 00:12:53.270 --> 00:12:56.100
  • KINDNESS MAKES HIM ATTRACTIVE.
  • 00:13:00.200 --> 00:13:03.200
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:13:03.200 --> 00:13:05.010
  • YOU MAY NOT HAVE RECOGNIZED IT
  • 00:13:05.010 --> 00:13:07.120
  • YET, BUT THIS IS GOOD PREACHING.
  • 00:13:07.180 --> 00:13:10.180
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:13:12.210 --> 00:13:15.210
  • BUT STRENGTH IS ALSO THE QUALITY
  • 00:13:19.020 --> 00:13:22.020
  • OF SPIRIT, THE COURAGE TO LIVE
  • 00:13:22.020 --> 00:13:24.260
  • OUT HIS CONVICTIONS, ESPECIALLY
  • 00:13:26.130 --> 00:13:29.130
  • UNDER PRESSURE.
  • 00:13:29.180 --> 00:13:32.180
  • BECAUSE WHEN A MAN HAS A SET OF
  • 00:13:32.180 --> 00:13:35.030
  • VALUES AND PRINCIPLES AND
  • 00:13:35.030 --> 00:13:37.010
  • CONVICTIONS THAT HE SUBSCRIBES
  • 00:13:37.010 --> 00:13:39.140
  • TO, THEN THE WOMAN CAN FEEL SAFE
  • 00:13:40.170 --> 00:13:43.170
  • AND SECURE IN THE RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:13:43.170 --> 00:13:45.200
  • GIVE HIM THE FREEDOM TO COME AND
  • 00:13:45.200 --> 00:13:47.240
  • GO AS HE WISHES, BECAUSE SHE
  • 00:13:49.030 --> 00:13:52.030
  • BELIEVES HIS SUBSCRIPTION TO
  • 00:13:52.030 --> 00:13:53.270
  • THOSE VALUES AND THE STRENGTH IN
  • 00:13:53.270 --> 00:13:55.270
  • HIS LIFE TO LIVE OUT HIS
  • 00:13:55.270 --> 00:13:58.090
  • CONVICTIONS WILL KEEP HIM FROM
  • 00:13:58.090 --> 00:14:00.130
  • COMPROMISING THOSE CONVICTIONS
  • 00:14:00.130 --> 00:14:02.000
  • AND THEREFORE HER HEART CAN
  • 00:14:02.000 --> 00:14:04.200
  • SAFELY TRUST IN HIM.
  • 00:14:08.070 --> 00:14:11.070
  • HERE IS WHAT I'VE LEARNED.
  • 00:14:11.070 --> 00:14:13.130
  • AND I WANT TO GO TO OUR TEXT FOR
  • 00:14:16.040 --> 00:14:19.040
  • TODAY.
  • 00:14:19.040 --> 00:14:19.260
  • I'VE LEARNED THAT THESE 4
  • 00:14:19.260 --> 00:14:22.190
  • QUALITIES ARE NOT JUST THE
  • 00:14:22.190 --> 00:14:24.270
  • QUALITIES GOD WANTS AND A WOMAN
  • 00:14:24.270 --> 00:14:27.180
  • WANTS IN A MAN THESE ARE ALSO
  • 00:14:27.180 --> 00:14:29.280
  • THE FOUR QUALITIES THAT PEOPLE
  • 00:14:30.240 --> 00:14:33.240
  • WANT IN A LEADER.
  • 00:14:34.280 --> 00:14:37.280
  • LEADERSHIP.
  • 00:14:37.280 --> 00:14:39.180
  • LEADERSHIP.
  • 00:14:39.180 --> 00:14:40.000
  • THERE IS A VACUUM OF LEADERSHIP
  • 00:14:40.000 --> 00:14:42.110
  • IN OUR WORLD.
  • 00:14:42.110 --> 00:14:44.060
  • LEADERSHIP IS THE ABILITY TO
  • 00:14:44.060 --> 00:14:46.080
  • MOVE PEOPLE IN A SPECIFIC
  • 00:14:46.230 --> 00:14:49.230
  • DIRECTION.
  • 00:14:49.230 --> 00:14:50.040
  • LEADERSHIP IS THE ABILITY TO
  • 00:14:50.140 --> 00:14:53.140
  • IDENTIFY GIFTS TALENTS, ABILITY
  • 00:14:53.140 --> 00:14:55.270
  • AND STRENGTHS IN PEOPLE AND
  • 00:14:55.270 --> 00:14:57.160
  • BRING THEM OUT, TO SHOW THEM HOW
  • 00:14:57.170 --> 00:15:00.190
  • TO APPLY THEM.
  • 00:15:00.190 --> 00:15:02.090
  • LEADERSHIP BRINGS OUT THE BEST
  • 00:15:02.090 --> 00:15:04.040
  • IN PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:04.040 --> 00:15:06.170
  • LEADERSHIP IS ABOUT TEACHING
  • 00:15:06.170 --> 00:15:07.280
  • PEOPLE HOW TO RESPOND QUICKLY TO
  • 00:15:09.220 --> 00:15:12.220
  • CHANGE.
  • 00:15:12.220 --> 00:15:13.140
  • AND CHANGE IS THE ONLY CONSTANT
  • 00:15:14.080 --> 00:15:17.080
  • IN LIFE.
  • 00:15:17.080 --> 00:15:19.230
  • CHANGE IS THE ONLY CONSTANT IN
  • 00:15:20.080 --> 00:15:23.080
  • LIFE.
  • 00:15:23.080 --> 00:15:23.210
  • AND CHANGE IS THE ESSENCE OF
  • 00:15:24.170 --> 00:15:27.170
  • MATURATION.
  • 00:15:27.170 --> 00:15:27.290
  • YOU WILL NEVER MATURE IN LIFE
  • 00:15:27.290 --> 00:15:29.250
  • UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO
  • 00:15:30.270 --> 00:15:33.270
  • CHANGE.
  • 00:15:33.270 --> 00:15:36.000
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:15:36.000 --> 00:15:37.110
  • A STUBBORN PERSON WILL ALWAYS BE
  • 00:15:37.110 --> 00:15:39.250
  • AN IGNORANT PERSON BECAUSE THEY
  • 00:15:39.250 --> 00:15:42.130
  • REFUSE TO BE TAUGHT.
  • 00:15:42.130 --> 00:15:44.090
  • SO CHANGE IS ESSENTIAL AND HOW
  • 00:15:45.200 --> 00:15:48.200
  • THAT CHANGE IS PROCESSED IS
  • 00:15:48.200 --> 00:15:51.040
  • CRITICAL TO GOOD GROWTH VERSUS
  • 00:15:52.110 --> 00:15:55.110
  • BAD GROWTH.
  • 00:15:55.260 --> 00:15:58.260
  • LEADERSHIP.
  • 00:15:58.260 --> 00:15:59.150
  • REQUIRES MATURITY, DECISIVENESS,
  • 00:15:59.190 --> 00:16:02.210
  • CONSISCONSISTENCY AND STRENGTH.
  • 00:16:03.190 --> 00:16:06.190
  • A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE MATURITY
  • 00:16:06.190 --> 00:16:09.060
  • ASPECT OF LEADERSHIP.
  • 00:16:10.090 --> 00:16:13.090
  • MINISTRY IS PEOPLE.
  • 00:16:15.090 --> 00:16:18.090
  • MINISTRY IS PEOPLE.
  • 00:16:20.080 --> 00:16:23.080
  • MINISTRY IS PEOPLE.
  • 00:16:25.220 --> 00:16:28.220
  • YOU CANNOT DO MINISTRY IF YOU
  • 00:16:28.220 --> 00:16:31.090
  • DON'T LOVE PEOPLE.
  • 00:16:31.090 --> 00:16:33.130
  • AND IT IS NOT ALWAYS EASY TO
  • 00:16:34.170 --> 00:16:37.170
  • LOVE PEOPLE.
  • 00:16:42.050 --> 00:16:45.050
  • AND SOME PEOPLE HAVE EXPERIENCED
  • 00:16:45.050 --> 00:16:47.090
  • WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:16:47.090 --> 00:16:49.010
  • THANK YOU FOR YOUR HAND CLAP
  • 00:16:49.010 --> 00:16:51.100
  • BACK THERE.
  • 00:16:51.100 --> 00:16:52.030
  • WE ARE HERE.
  • 00:16:52.030 --> 00:16:52.260
  • WE ARE RIGHT HERE.
  • 00:16:52.260 --> 00:16:54.190
  • THERE IS A WONDERFUL PASSAGE IN
  • 00:16:55.190 --> 00:16:58.190
  • MATTHEW CHAPTER 9 VERSE 36.
  • 00:16:59.100 --> 00:17:02.120
  • JESUS HAD JUST GONE THROUGH A
  • 00:17:02.120 --> 00:17:04.190
  • PROCESS OF MINISTRY, HEALING
  • 00:17:04.270 --> 00:17:07.270
  • PEOPLE, DEALING WITH THEIR
  • 00:17:07.270 --> 00:17:09.290
  • SICKNESS, DISEASES, ISSUES, AND
  • 00:17:11.110 --> 00:17:14.110
  • HE PAUSES TO JUST LOOK OUT AT
  • 00:17:14.180 --> 00:17:17.180
  • THE PEOPLE, LOOK OUT AT THE
  • 00:17:18.200 --> 00:17:21.200
  • MULTITUDES IT READS AS FOLLOWS,
  • 00:17:21.200 --> 00:17:24.130
  • BUT WHEN HE SAW THE MULTITUDES,
  • 00:17:24.130 --> 00:17:27.060
  • HE WAS MOVED WITH COMPASSION FOR
  • 00:17:28.060 --> 00:17:31.060
  • THEM.
  • 00:17:31.060 --> 00:17:31.160
  • BECAUSE THEY WERE WEARY,
  • 00:17:34.220 --> 00:17:37.220
  • SCATTERED, THEY WERE LIKE SHEEP
  • 00:17:39.080 --> 00:17:42.080
  • HAVING NO SHEPHERD.
  • 00:17:42.220 --> 00:17:45.220
  • IN OTHER WORDS, THEY WERE PEOPLE
  • 00:17:45.220 --> 00:17:48.120
  • WHO NEEDED LEADERSHIP.
  • 00:17:48.130 --> 00:17:51.130
  • THEY HAD THEIR ISSUES, THEY HAD
  • 00:17:51.130 --> 00:17:53.240
  • THEIR CHALLENGES, AND THOSE
  • 00:17:53.240 --> 00:17:56.080
  • ISSUES AND CHALLENGES FILLED
  • 00:17:56.080 --> 00:17:58.050
  • THEM WITH ANXIETY.
  • 00:17:58.050 --> 00:18:01.020
  • SO WHEN THEY HEARD ABOUT JESUS
  • 00:18:01.020 --> 00:18:03.030
  • AND HOW EFFECTIVELY HE WAS
  • 00:18:03.030 --> 00:18:05.190
  • MINISTERING TO THE NEEDS OF
  • 00:18:05.190 --> 00:18:07.160
  • PEOPLE, THEY WOULD GATHER IN
  • 00:18:07.170 --> 00:18:10.170
  • HUGE CROWDS NO MATTER WHERE HE
  • 00:18:10.170 --> 00:18:12.220
  • WAS, FIND HIM AND COME TO HIM.
  • 00:18:13.290 --> 00:18:16.290
  • AND HE LIKE THE QINT SCEN QUINTL
  • 00:18:21.160 --> 00:18:24.160
  • LEADER AND WHAT HE SAW MOVED HIM
  • 00:18:24.160 --> 00:18:27.150
  • WITH COMPASSION.
  • 00:18:27.150 --> 00:18:28.050
  • HE SAW THE DEEP AND PROFOUND
  • 00:18:28.050 --> 00:18:30.290
  • NEED THAT PEOPLE HAVE FOR GOOD
  • 00:18:32.120 --> 00:18:35.120
  • LEADERSHIP.
  • 00:18:35.120 --> 00:18:37.080
  • THE PROPHETS OF OLD SAID THAT
  • 00:18:37.130 --> 00:18:40.130
  • MESSIAH WHEN HE WOULD COME AND
  • 00:18:41.050 --> 00:18:44.050
  • EXPRESS THE KINGDOM, THAT HE
  • 00:18:44.050 --> 00:18:46.210
  • WOULD BRING SHEP EVIDEN SHEPHERS
  • 00:18:53.210 --> 00:18:56.210
  • OWN HEART.
  • 00:18:56.210 --> 00:18:58.030
  • THE WORD SHEPHERD WAS USED TO
  • 00:18:58.030 --> 00:19:00.190
  • DESCRIBE ANY LEVEL OF LEADERSHIP
  • 00:19:00.190 --> 00:19:02.140
  • WHETHER SACRED OR SECULAR.
  • 00:19:02.140 --> 00:19:05.070
  • BECAUSE GOD SEES LEADERS,
  • 00:19:07.000 --> 00:19:10.000
  • SOMEONE WHO HAS COMPASSION FOR
  • 00:19:10.000 --> 00:19:11.270
  • THE SHEEP SOMEONE WHO
  • 00:19:11.270 --> 00:19:13.280
  • UNDERSTANDS THEIR NEED FOR
  • 00:19:13.280 --> 00:19:15.190
  • GUIDANCE, FOR WISDOM, FOR
  • 00:19:15.190 --> 00:19:17.170
  • DIRECTION, FOR UNDERSTANDING.
  • 00:19:17.170 --> 00:19:19.200
  • AND JESUS LOOKED OUT AT THEM AND
  • 00:19:19.210 --> 00:19:22.210
  • HE WAS MOVED WITH COMPASSION.
  • 00:19:23.180 --> 00:19:26.180
  • HE SAW THEM WEARY, BECAUSE OF
  • 00:19:27.100 --> 00:19:30.100
  • CHALLENGES OF LIFE, THE ISSUES
  • 00:19:30.100 --> 00:19:32.200
  • THEY WERE DEALING WITH, IT IS
  • 00:19:32.200 --> 00:19:34.220
  • THE SAME FAMILIAR ISSUES MANY OF
  • 00:19:34.220 --> 00:19:36.270
  • US ARE CHALLENGED WITH.
  • 00:19:37.270 --> 00:19:40.270
  • WORE THEM DOWN AND THEY WERE
  • 00:19:40.270 --> 00:19:43.080
  • LOOKING FOR RESOLUTION.
  • 00:19:43.080 --> 00:19:44.100
  • THEY WERE LOOKING FOR ANSWERS.
  • 00:19:44.230 --> 00:19:47.230
  • THEY WERE SCATTERED, AND IF WE
  • 00:19:48.000 --> 00:19:51.000
  • LOOK AT THAT WORD IT MEANS
  • 00:19:51.000 --> 00:19:53.170
  • CHAOS, IT MEANS THINGS WERE ALL
  • 00:19:53.240 --> 00:19:56.240
  • OVER THE PLACE, THERE WAS NO
  • 00:19:56.240 --> 00:19:58.220
  • SENSE OF ORDER OR STRUCTURE.
  • 00:19:58.220 --> 00:20:01.150
  • OF COURSE, THIS WAS ANOTHER
  • 00:20:01.150 --> 00:20:03.260
  • THING HE WOULD BRING TO THEM IN
  • 00:20:03.260 --> 00:20:06.130
  • HIS MESSAGES AND HIS DEALINGS,
  • 00:20:09.040 --> 00:20:12.040
  • PEOPLE COME TO US, PASTOR BRIAN
  • 00:20:12.280 --> 00:20:15.280
  • PUT IT OUT THERE THAT ALL OF YOU
  • 00:20:15.280 --> 00:20:17.220
  • ARE LEADERS IN SOME WAY.
  • 00:20:17.220 --> 00:20:19.120
  • THE MOMENT YOU TAKE
  • 00:20:19.120 --> 00:20:21.080
  • RESPONSIBILITY FOR SOMEONE ELSE
  • 00:20:21.080 --> 00:20:22.180
  • YOU HAVE ENTERED LEADERSHIP.
  • 00:20:28.190 --> 00:20:31.190
  • LEADERSHIP.
  • 00:20:31.190 --> 00:20:32.160
  • AND JESUS SAW THEM AND WAS
  • 00:20:32.160 --> 00:20:35.160
  • DEEPLY MOVED.
  • 00:20:35.160 --> 00:20:38.020
  • WHEN PEOPLE COME TO US, IT MUST
  • 00:20:38.290 --> 00:20:41.290
  • BE ASSUMED THAT THEY ADMIT THAT
  • 00:20:44.230 --> 00:20:47.230
  • THEY NEED GOD IN THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:20:47.230 --> 00:20:50.130
  • THAT IS A BASIC AND FAIR
  • 00:20:50.130 --> 00:20:52.250
  • ASSUMPTION THAT WHEN PEOPLE COME
  • 00:20:52.250 --> 00:20:54.120
  • TO CHURCH, WHEN THEY COME TO
  • 00:20:54.230 --> 00:20:57.230
  • MINISTRY, THEY ADMIT THAT THEY
  • 00:20:57.230 --> 00:21:00.020
  • HAVE A NEED FOR GOD IN THEIR
  • 00:21:00.020 --> 00:21:02.270
  • LIFE.
  • 00:21:02.270 --> 00:21:03.080
  • BUT THEY COME WITH ANXIETY, THEY
  • 00:21:05.220 --> 00:21:08.220
  • COME WRESTLING WITH ISSUES, THEY
  • 00:21:08.230 --> 00:21:11.230
  • COME NEEDING GUIDANCE AND
  • 00:21:11.260 --> 00:21:14.260
  • DIRECTION AND THEY COME WITH
  • 00:21:15.250 --> 00:21:18.250
  • EXPECTATIONS.
  • 00:21:18.250 --> 00:21:19.080
  • SOMETIMES REASONABLE, SOMETIMES
  • 00:21:20.030 --> 00:21:23.030
  • UNREASONABLE EXPECTATIONS.
  • 00:21:23.030 --> 00:21:25.170
  • REMEMBER, DISAPPOINTMENT IS LIFE
  • 00:21:25.170 --> 00:21:27.060
  • IS NEVER BASED ON WHAT YOU FIND,
  • 00:21:27.060 --> 00:21:30.020
  • IT IS BASED ON WHAT YOU EXPECTED
  • 00:21:30.050 --> 00:21:33.050
  • TO FIND.
  • 00:21:33.050 --> 00:21:34.000
  • IF WHEN YOU FIND DOES NOT MEET
  • 00:21:34.190 --> 00:21:37.190
  • YOUR EXPECTATION YOU BECOME
  • 00:21:37.190 --> 00:21:39.220
  • DISAPPOINTED.
  • 00:21:39.220 --> 00:21:40.080
  • AND THE DEGREE OF DISAPPOINTMENT
  • 00:21:40.080 --> 00:21:42.270
  • IS DETERMINED BY THE DISTANCE
  • 00:21:43.070 --> 00:21:46.070
  • BETWEEN YOUR EXPECTATION AND THE
  • 00:21:47.020 --> 00:21:50.020
  • LEGITIMACY OF THAT EXPECTATION
  • 00:21:50.050 --> 00:21:53.050
  • AND REALITY.
  • 00:21:53.050 --> 00:21:54.070
  • I TELL WOMEN ALL THE TIME, WHEN
  • 00:21:54.070 --> 00:21:56.030
  • YOU GET MARRIED, HONEYMOON NIGHT
  • 00:21:57.070 --> 00:22:00.090
  • YOU GO TO BED WITH THE IDEA BUT
  • 00:22:00.090 --> 00:22:03.090
  • YOU WAKE UP WITH THE REALITY.
  • 00:22:03.090 --> 00:22:06.090
  • SO EXPECTATIONS HAVE TO BE
  • 00:22:06.090 --> 00:22:08.180
  • MANAGED.
  • 00:22:08.180 --> 00:22:09.000
  • BUT THE PEOPLE THAT COME TO US
  • 00:22:09.000 --> 00:22:11.070
  • AS LEADERS DON'T KNOW HOW TO
  • 00:22:11.070 --> 00:22:13.270
  • MANAGE THOSE EXPECTATIONS.
  • 00:22:13.270 --> 00:22:16.010
  • AND SOMETIMES THOSE EXPECTATIONS
  • 00:22:16.010 --> 00:22:18.210
  • ARE SO HIGH THAT WHEN WE AS
  • 00:22:18.210 --> 00:22:21.210
  • LEADERS DON'T MEASURE UP TO THEM
  • 00:22:21.210 --> 00:22:23.060
  • THE INDIVIDUALS WHO COME GET
  • 00:22:24.080 --> 00:22:27.080
  • DISAPPOINTED.
  • 00:22:27.080 --> 00:22:27.210
  • THAT IS THE REALITY OF
  • 00:22:29.140 --> 00:22:32.140
  • LEADERSHIP.
  • 00:22:32.140 --> 00:22:33.060
  • TWO CHRONICLES CHAPTER 1 VERSE
  • 00:22:35.020 --> 00:22:38.020
  • 10.
  • 00:22:38.020 --> 00:22:40.050
  • SOLOMON IS IN A GRAVE SITUATION
  • 00:22:41.290 --> 00:22:44.290
  • BECAUSE HE IS ABOUT TO TAKE ON
  • 00:22:44.290 --> 00:22:47.040
  • THE LEADERSHIP OF A NATION.
  • 00:22:47.130 --> 00:22:50.130
  • A NATION THAT HAS BEEN THROUGH A
  • 00:22:51.290 --> 00:22:54.290
  • LOT, UNDER HIS FATHER'S
  • 00:22:54.290 --> 00:22:56.150
  • LEADERSHIP, DAVID.
  • 00:22:56.150 --> 00:22:57.290
  • THEY WITNESSED FAILURES IN
  • 00:22:57.290 --> 00:23:00.240
  • LEADERSHIP, WEAKNESS IN
  • 00:23:00.240 --> 00:23:02.030
  • LEADERSHIP AND AT THE SAME TIME
  • 00:23:02.030 --> 00:23:03.180
  • STRENGTH IN LEADERSHIP.
  • 00:23:03.180 --> 00:23:06.180
  • SOLOMON NOW STEPS INTO POSITION.
  • 00:23:07.000 --> 00:23:10.000
  • HILLS PRAYER HIS PRAYER AND REQE
  • 00:23:12.020 --> 00:23:15.020
  • INTERESTING.
  • 00:23:15.020 --> 00:23:15.210
  • I CALL IT A PRAYER.
  • 00:23:15.210 --> 00:23:17.260
  • BECAUSE HE HAS THE EXPERIENCE OF
  • 00:23:17.280 --> 00:23:20.280
  • SEEING HIS FATHER DAVID AS A
  • 00:23:20.280 --> 00:23:23.020
  • LEADER.
  • 00:23:23.020 --> 00:23:23.120
  • HE HAD THE EXPERIENCE OF
  • 00:23:23.120 --> 00:23:26.060
  • WATCHING DAVID DEAL WITH NOT
  • 00:23:26.060 --> 00:23:28.110
  • ONLY THE PEOPLE IN THE KINGDOM
  • 00:23:28.110 --> 00:23:29.290
  • BUT HIS OWN FAMILY.
  • 00:23:29.290 --> 00:23:32.030
  • AND IF YOU READ THE STORY ABOUT
  • 00:23:32.030 --> 00:23:34.140
  • DAVID'S LIFE, YOU KNOW THAT HE
  • 00:23:34.140 --> 00:23:35.210
  • HAD A LOT OF FAMILY ISSUES.
  • 00:23:37.230 --> 00:23:40.230
  • QUITE DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY.
  • 00:23:40.230 --> 00:23:42.140
  • SO NOW THE LEADERSHIP MANTLE IS
  • 00:23:42.240 --> 00:23:45.240
  • BEING GIVEN TO SOLOMON.
  • 00:23:45.240 --> 00:23:47.260
  • AND GOD SAYS, WHATEVER YOU WANT,
  • 00:23:47.260 --> 00:23:50.260
  • I WILL GIVE IT TO YOU.
  • 00:23:51.110 --> 00:23:54.110
  • AND IN 2 CHRONICLES CHAPTER 1
  • 00:23:55.150 --> 00:23:58.150
  • VERSE 10 SOLOMON SAYS, GIVE ME
  • 00:24:00.120 --> 00:24:03.120
  • WISDOM.
  • 00:24:03.120 --> 00:24:05.110
  • BUT THEN, HE GETS A LITTLE
  • 00:24:05.290 --> 00:24:08.290
  • DETAILED.
  • 00:24:08.290 --> 00:24:09.100
  • HE SAID GIVE ME WISDOM SO THAT I
  • 00:24:10.140 --> 00:24:13.140
  • CAN GO OUT AND COME IN AMONGST
  • 00:24:18.190 --> 00:24:21.190
  • YOUR PEOPLE.
  • 00:24:21.190 --> 00:24:23.290
  • BECAUSE WHO CAN JUDGE THIS GREAT
  • 00:24:24.110 --> 00:24:27.110
  • NATION OF PEOPLE?
  • 00:24:27.110 --> 00:24:28.290
  • AND HE UNDERSTOOD THAT
  • 00:24:28.290 --> 00:24:30.270
  • LEADERSHIP IS ABOUT HAVING GOOD
  • 00:24:32.030 --> 00:24:35.030
  • JUDGMENT.
  • 00:24:35.030 --> 00:24:35.150
  • BUT HIS WORDS ARE CRITICAL.
  • 00:24:36.230 --> 00:24:39.230
  • HE SAID GIVE ME THE WISDOM, NOT
  • 00:24:39.230 --> 00:24:42.040
  • JUST WISDOM TO LEAD BUT WISDOM
  • 00:24:43.010 --> 00:24:46.010
  • TO GO OUT AND TO COME IN.
  • 00:24:48.230 --> 00:24:51.230
  • BECAUSE HE UNDERSTOOD THAT HIS
  • 00:24:51.230 --> 00:24:54.030
  • LEADERSHIP WOULD REQUIRE HIM TO
  • 00:24:54.050 --> 00:24:57.050
  • BE AMONGST THE PEOPLE, HAVE A
  • 00:24:57.270 --> 00:25:00.290
  • RAPPORT WITH THE PEOPLE, A
  • 00:25:00.290 --> 00:25:03.170
  • LOVING UNDERSTANDING AND
  • 00:25:03.170 --> 00:25:05.230
  • TRUSTING RELATIONSHIP WITH THE
  • 00:25:05.230 --> 00:25:07.110
  • PEOPLE BUT AT THE SAME TIME HE
  • 00:25:07.110 --> 00:25:10.030
  • WOULD HAVE TO HAVE A DEGREE OF
  • 00:25:10.220 --> 00:25:13.220
  • DETACHMENT FROM THE VERY PEOPLE
  • 00:25:13.220 --> 00:25:15.030
  • HE WAS CALLED TO LEAD.
  • 00:25:15.280 --> 00:25:18.280
  • HE HAD TO BE IN A PLACE WHERE
  • 00:25:21.220 --> 00:25:24.220
  • THEIR PERMANENT AGENDAS,
  • 00:25:24.220 --> 00:25:26.220
  • PERSONAL EMOTIONS, PERSONAL
  • 00:25:26.220 --> 00:25:28.260
  • ANXIETY AND CHALLENGES DID NOT
  • 00:25:28.260 --> 00:25:30.150
  • BECOME SO OVERWHELMING TO HIM
  • 00:25:30.150 --> 00:25:32.130
  • THAT HE COULD NOT SEPARATE
  • 00:25:32.130 --> 00:25:34.270
  • HIMSELF FROM THEM IN ORDER TO
  • 00:25:34.270 --> 00:25:36.150
  • LEAD THEM.
  • 00:25:38.100 --> 00:25:41.100
  • SEE, BECAUSE AS LEADERS,
  • 00:25:41.100 --> 00:25:44.050
  • ALTHOUGH WE ARE AMONGST THE
  • 00:25:44.050 --> 00:25:45.100
  • PEOPLE MOVING WITHIN THE PEOPLE,
  • 00:25:45.100 --> 00:25:47.090
  • NAVIGATING WITH THE PEOPLE,
  • 00:25:47.090 --> 00:25:49.000
  • HEARING AND FEELING WITH
  • 00:25:49.000 --> 00:25:51.240
  • COMPASSION THEIR ISSUES, THEIR
  • 00:25:51.240 --> 00:25:54.210
  • CHALLENGES, IN ORDER TO LEAD
  • 00:25:54.210 --> 00:25:56.020
  • THEM OBJECTIVELY, WE HAVE TO BE
  • 00:25:56.020 --> 00:25:58.100
  • ABLE TO SEPARATE OURSELVES FROM
  • 00:25:58.200 --> 00:26:01.220
  • THOSE REALITIES THEY ARE DEALING
  • 00:26:01.220 --> 00:26:03.260
  • WITH IN ORDER TO SPEAK TRUTH
  • 00:26:03.260 --> 00:26:06.250
  • INTO THEIR LIVES, YOU CANNOT
  • 00:26:06.250 --> 00:26:08.130
  • LEAD PEOPLE YOU ARE AFRAID OF.
  • 00:26:08.260 --> 00:26:11.260
  • I WILL TRY THAT ONE MORE TIME.
  • 00:26:11.260 --> 00:26:14.030
  • YOU CANNOT LEAD PEOPLE YOU ARE
  • 00:26:14.040 --> 00:26:17.040
  • AFRAID OF.
  • 00:26:17.040 --> 00:26:18.280
  • YOU CANNOT LEAD PEOPLE THAT YOU
  • 00:26:20.080 --> 00:26:23.080
  • ARE BOUND BY.
  • 00:26:23.210 --> 00:26:26.210
  • AND IT IS SO EASY TO GO OUT
  • 00:26:27.170 --> 00:26:30.170
  • AMONGST THE PEOPLE, LOVE THEM,
  • 00:26:30.170 --> 00:26:33.080
  • INTERACT WITH THEM, FEEL THEIR
  • 00:26:34.080 --> 00:26:37.080
  • NEEDS, BUT IF YOU ARE NOT
  • 00:26:37.080 --> 00:26:39.090
  • CAREFUL, YOU CAN BECOME SO
  • 00:26:39.250 --> 00:26:42.250
  • ENTANGLED IN THOSE NEEDS THAT
  • 00:26:42.250 --> 00:26:44.180
  • YOU CANNOT LEAD THEM
  • 00:26:44.180 --> 00:26:47.150
  • OBJECTIVELY.
  • 00:26:47.150 --> 00:26:47.270
  • BECAUSE WHEN YOU GET ENTANGLED
  • 00:26:49.170 --> 00:26:52.170
  • YOU HAVE SECOND THOUGHTS ABOUT
  • 00:26:52.170 --> 00:26:55.070
  • SPEAKING THE TRUTH THAT THEY
  • 00:26:55.070 --> 00:26:57.010
  • NEED TO HEAR.
  • 00:27:03.280 --> 00:27:06.280
  • CHANGE IS THE ONLY CONSTANT IN
  • 00:27:09.060 --> 00:27:12.060
  • LIFE.
  • 00:27:12.060 --> 00:27:12.150
  • TRUTH BRINGS THE CONVICTION
  • 00:27:12.150 --> 00:27:14.260
  • NECESSARY FOR CHANGE.
  • 00:27:14.260 --> 00:27:16.240
  • THAT'S WHY JESUS' PRAYER FOR US
  • 00:27:19.060 --> 00:27:22.060
  • IS SANCTIFY THEM WITH YOUR
  • 00:27:22.060 --> 00:27:24.100
  • TRUTH.
  • 00:27:24.100 --> 00:27:24.250
  • YOUR WORD IS TRUTH.
  • 00:27:25.170 --> 00:27:28.170
  • WHAT SEPARATES US FROM THE LIE,
  • 00:27:28.170 --> 00:27:30.270
  • WHAT SEPARATES US FROM THE
  • 00:27:32.110 --> 00:27:35.110
  • ILLUSION IS TRUTH.
  • 00:27:35.110 --> 00:27:37.290
  • SO TRUTH BRINGS A CONVICTION
  • 00:27:37.290 --> 00:27:40.170
  • NECESSARY FOR CHANGE.
  • 00:27:40.170 --> 00:27:42.140
  • BECAUSE YOU WILL NOT CHANGE
  • 00:27:43.020 --> 00:27:46.020
  • UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO BE
  • 00:27:46.100 --> 00:27:49.100
  • CONFRONTED BY THE TRUTH ABOUT
  • 00:27:49.100 --> 00:27:51.270
  • YOUR SITUATION.
  • 00:27:55.290 --> 00:27:58.290
  • ALL TRUTH IS CONFRON CONFRONTAT.
  • 00:28:00.080 --> 00:28:03.080
  • ALL TRUTH IS CONFRONTATIONAL.
  • 00:28:03.280 --> 00:28:06.280
  • ALL TRUTH IS CONFRONTATIONAL.
  • 00:28:08.030 --> 00:28:11.030
  • BUT YOU WILL NOT CHANGE IN LIFE
  • 00:28:11.030 --> 00:28:13.180
  • UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO BE
  • 00:28:13.180 --> 00:28:16.080
  • CONFRONTED WITH THE TRUTH.
  • 00:28:17.010 --> 00:28:20.010
  • AND AGAIN, GRACE ALLOWS GOD TO
  • 00:28:21.130 --> 00:28:24.130
  • LOOK BEYOND THE HIGH
  • 00:28:24.130 --> 00:28:27.080
  • REQUIREMENTS OF THE LAW OF
  • 00:28:27.290 --> 00:28:30.290
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS AND SEE OUR NEEDS
  • 00:28:30.290 --> 00:28:32.100
  • AND DEAL WITH OUR NEEDS BUT
  • 00:28:32.100 --> 00:28:34.050
  • TRUTH IS WHAT BRINGS THE CHANGE
  • 00:28:34.050 --> 00:28:37.020
  • NECESSARY TO MOVE US FROM THAT
  • 00:28:37.020 --> 00:28:39.150
  • CONDITION THAT GRACE FOUND US IN
  • 00:28:39.150 --> 00:28:41.130
  • AND LEAD US INTO A PATHWAY OF
  • 00:28:42.110 --> 00:28:45.110
  • GROWTH DEVELOPMENT AND MATURITY.
  • 00:28:48.100 --> 00:28:51.100
  • MATURATION IS THE ESSENCE,
  • 00:28:55.100 --> 00:28:58.100
  • GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT.
  • 00:28:58.200 --> 00:29:01.220
  • EVERYTHING HAS BEEN CALLED TO
  • 00:29:01.220 --> 00:29:03.230
  • MATURE.
  • 00:29:03.230 --> 00:29:04.030
  • RELATIONSHIPS TO MATURE.
  • 00:29:04.030 --> 00:29:06.030
  • SO SOLOMON DEEPLY AND PROFOUNDLY
  • 00:29:06.030 --> 00:29:09.030
  • WITH HIS WORDS UNDERSTOOD OKAY,
  • 00:29:09.030 --> 00:29:11.130
  • I NEED WISDOM TO GO OUT, BE ONE
  • 00:29:11.130 --> 00:29:14.010
  • WITH THE PEOPLE, INTERACT WITH
  • 00:29:14.010 --> 00:29:16.060
  • THEM, LET THEM UNDERSTAND I HAVE
  • 00:29:16.230 --> 00:29:19.230
  • COMPASSION, I FEEL FOR YOU, I
  • 00:29:19.230 --> 00:29:21.290
  • UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE GOING
  • 00:29:21.290 --> 00:29:23.210
  • THROUGH BUT AT THE SAME TIME YOU
  • 00:29:23.210 --> 00:29:25.130
  • MUST UNDERSTAND THAT I HAVE TO
  • 00:29:25.130 --> 00:29:26.280
  • HAVE A CERTAIN RAPPORT SO THAT I
  • 00:29:27.180 --> 00:29:30.180
  • CAN BE HONEST AND SPEAK INTO
  • 00:29:31.160 --> 00:29:34.160
  • YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:29:34.160 --> 00:29:36.120
  • AND THAT IS WHY I SAY YOU CANNOT
  • 00:29:36.170 --> 00:29:39.170
  • LEAD PEOPLE IF YOU ARE AFRAID OF
  • 00:29:39.170 --> 00:29:41.280
  • THEM BECAUSE YOU WILL BE AFRAID
  • 00:29:41.280 --> 00:29:43.260
  • TO TELL THEM WHAT THEY REALLY
  • 00:29:43.260 --> 00:29:45.260
  • NEED TO HEAR IN ORDER TO CHANGE
  • 00:29:46.130 --> 00:29:49.130
  • THEIR CONDITION.
  • 00:29:49.180 --> 00:29:52.180
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:29:53.040 --> 00:29:56.040
  • TRUE LEADERS ARE WILLING TO TAKE
  • 00:29:56.040 --> 00:29:59.040
  • THAT RISK.
  • 00:29:59.040 --> 00:30:00.060
  • TRUE FRIENDS ARE WILLING TO TAKE
  • 00:30:00.060 --> 00:30:02.240
  • THAT RISK BECAUSE IF YOU ARE A
  • 00:30:02.240 --> 00:30:05.040
  • TRUE FRIEND YOU WILL TELL ME
  • 00:30:05.040 --> 00:30:06.290
  • WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME AND YOU
  • 00:30:06.290 --> 00:30:08.200
  • WILL RISK THE FRIENDSHIP BECAUSE
  • 00:30:08.200 --> 00:30:10.190
  • JESUS SAID WHATEVER YOU WANT TO
  • 00:30:10.190 --> 00:30:12.260
  • SAVE IN LIFE YOU BETTER BE
  • 00:30:12.260 --> 00:30:15.000
  • WILLING TO LOSE IT.
  • 00:30:15.000 --> 00:30:17.220
  • TOO OFTEN TRYING TO SAVE
  • 00:30:17.220 --> 00:30:19.100
  • SOMETHING WE ARE NOT WILLING TO
  • 00:30:19.100 --> 00:30:21.040
  • LOSE WE END UP LOSING IT ANYWAY.
  • 00:30:21.110 --> 00:30:24.110
  • TELL YOUR NEIGHBOR HE IS TALKING
  • 00:30:24.110 --> 00:30:25.270
  • ABOUT SOMEBODY YOU KNOW.
  • 00:30:31.270 --> 00:30:34.270
  • SOLOMON UNDERSTOOD IT.
  • 00:30:34.270 --> 00:30:36.170
  • IT WAS A BRILLIANT REQUEST.
  • 00:30:37.040 --> 00:30:40.040
  • BECAUSE THAT IS THE PART
  • 00:30:40.040 --> 00:30:42.080
  • LEADERSHIP WE FIND TOUGH.
  • 00:30:42.080 --> 00:30:44.010

  • 00:46:52.250 --> 00:46:55.250
  • BOTH RAPPORT AND DETACHMENT IN
  • 00:46:55.250 --> 00:46:58.160
