  • - WHAT MOST OF US NEED TO DO,
  • 00:00:00.220 --> 00:00:02.090
  • IS SIMPLY MAYBE,
  • 00:00:02.120 --> 00:00:03.200
  • GET OUR COFFEE AT A DIFFERENT COFFEE SHOP,
  • 00:00:03.230 --> 00:00:05.210
  • OR INTENTIONALLY BUILD A RELATIONSHIP WITH SOMEONE THERE.
  • 00:00:05.240 --> 00:00:08.160
  • MAYBE GO OUT OF OUR WAY AND SAY,
  • 00:00:08.190 --> 00:00:11.030
  • "YOU KNOW, HOW CAN I DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT TODAY?
  • 00:00:11.060 --> 00:00:14.070
  • "WHERE CAN I GO SOMEWHERE DIFFERENT
  • 00:00:14.100 --> 00:00:16.040
  • "SO THAT I CAN MEET SOME PEOPLE THAT I DON'T NORMALLY MEET."
  • 00:00:16.070 --> 00:00:19.240
  • AND WHEN I START MEETING PEOPLE THAT I DON'T NORMALLY MEET,
  • 00:00:19.270 --> 00:00:22.160
  • I CAN START TALKING TO THEM ABOUT JESUS.
  • 00:00:22.190 --> 00:00:25.240
  • WORD OF MOUTH
  • 00:00:25.270 --> 00:00:26.210
  • IS THE MOST GENUINE ADVERTISEMENT
  • 00:00:26.240 --> 00:00:30.030
  • WHEN WE TRULY LOVE SOMETHING,
  • 00:00:30.060 --> 00:00:31.200
  • WE CAN'T STOP TALKING ABOUT IT.
  • 00:00:31.230 --> 00:00:33.130
  • DID YOU KNOW YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD CAN BE THE SAME WAY?
  • 00:00:33.160 --> 00:00:37.090
  • THE CLOSER I AM TO GOD, THE MORE DEEPLY I KNOW HIM,
  • 00:00:37.120 --> 00:00:40.240
  • THE MORE I TALK ABOUT HIM.
  • 00:00:40.270 --> 00:00:42.120
  • AND WHEN I THINK OF ALL HE'S DONE,
  • 00:00:42.150 --> 00:00:44.280
  • I CAN'T HELP MYSELF.
  • 00:00:45.010 --> 00:00:46.140
  • IT'S EASY TO OVERCOMPLICATE SHARING THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:00:46.170 --> 00:00:49.140
  • BUT SHARING JESUS IN A GENUINE WAY,
  • 00:00:49.170 --> 00:00:51.180
  • STARTS WITH KNOWING HIM IN A GENUINE WAY.
  • 00:00:51.210 --> 00:00:54.160
  • I'M CHRISTINE CAINE,
  • 00:00:54.190 --> 00:00:55.200
  • AND I HAVE A PERSONAL MISSION TO EQUIP
  • 00:00:55.230 --> 00:00:57.140
  • AND EMPOWER PEOPLE LIKE YOU,
  • 00:00:57.170 --> 00:00:59.010
  • TO CONNECT WITH YOUR GOD GIVEN PURPOSE AND POTENTIAL.
  • 00:00:59.040 --> 00:01:01.250
  • I AM SO GLAD THAT YOU'RE JOINING US TODAY.
  • 00:01:01.280 --> 00:01:04.030
  • LET'S JUMP RIGHT IN.
  • 00:01:04.060 --> 00:01:05.050
  • [UPBEAT MUSIC]
  • 00:01:05.080 --> 00:01:15.290
  • [CONGREGATION CLAPPING]
  • 00:01:16.020 --> 00:01:19.050
  • HI EVERYONE.
  • 00:01:19.080 --> 00:01:20.120
  • I AM SO GRATEFUL THAT YOU HAVE JOINED US TODAY.
  • 00:01:20.150 --> 00:01:23.100
  • I KNOW THAT GOD'S GOT A WORD FOR YOU.
  • 00:01:23.130 --> 00:01:25.150
  • I AM
  • 00:01:25.180 --> 00:01:26.100
  • SO FIRED UP.
  • 00:01:26.130 --> 00:01:28.030
  • YOU KNOW, I WONDER,
  • 00:01:28.060 --> 00:01:29.120
  • HAVE YOU EVER MET ANYONE,
  • 00:01:29.150 --> 00:01:31.140
  • AND THEN ONCE YOU'VE MET THEM,
  • 00:01:31.170 --> 00:01:32.210
  • YOU WERE SO WOWED BY THIS PERSON,
  • 00:01:32.240 --> 00:01:35.050
  • THAT YOU COULDN'T STOP TALKING ABOUT THEM?
  • 00:01:35.080 --> 00:01:36.280
  • MAYBE YOU KNOW, YOU WENT TO A PARTY, MADE A NEW FRIEND,
  • 00:01:37.010 --> 00:01:39.050
  • AND YOU'RE JUST LIKE, CALLING ALL YOUR OTHER FRIENDS
  • 00:01:39.080 --> 00:01:40.250
  • AND GOING, "YOU'VE GOT TO MEET THIS FRIEND."
  • 00:01:40.280 --> 00:01:43.240
  • AND OF COURSE, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:01:43.270 --> 00:01:44.260
  • I REMEMBER WHEN I FIRST MET NICK.
  • 00:01:44.290 --> 00:01:47.240
  • NOW, HE LIKES TO THINK THAT I WAS JUST SO OVERCOME
  • 00:01:47.270 --> 00:01:50.160
  • WITH EMOTION THAT I COULD NOT TALK ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE,
  • 00:01:50.190 --> 00:01:53.150
  • OR ANYBODY ELSE.
  • 00:01:53.180 --> 00:01:54.240
  • BUT THE TRUTH IS, YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU MEET THAT GUY,
  • 00:01:54.270 --> 00:01:57.100
  • OR ONE OF YOUR FRIENDS MEETS THAT GUY,
  • 00:01:57.130 --> 00:01:59.170
  • OR YOU KNOW, ONE OF YOUR GIRLFRIENDS MEETS THAT GIRL
  • 00:01:59.200 --> 00:02:02.140
  • AND THEY DO NOT STOP TALKING ABOUT THIS PERSON,
  • 00:02:02.170 --> 00:02:05.050
  • AND EVENTUALLY, THEY'RE LIKE,
  • 00:02:05.080 --> 00:02:06.030
  • "REALLY, PLEASE TAKE A CHILL PILL."
  • 00:02:06.060 --> 00:02:08.030
  • AND SO IT'S LIKE ALL I TALK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:02:08.060 --> 00:02:10.070
  • I SEE IT, I SEE MY LITTLE GIRL SOPHIE,
  • 00:02:10.100 --> 00:02:13.200
  • SHE LOVES TO ACT AND SHE LOVES MOVIES,
  • 00:02:13.230 --> 00:02:16.290
  • AND IF SHE FALLS IN LOVE WITH EVEN A NEW MOVIE,
  • 00:02:17.020 --> 00:02:20.030
  • OR A NEW ACTOR, SHE'S LIKE,
  • 00:02:20.060 --> 00:02:21.220
  • DOES NOT STOP TALKING FROM MORNING TO NIGHT,
  • 00:02:21.250 --> 00:02:23.200
  • SHE TAKES AFTER THE FATHER.
  • 00:02:23.230 --> 00:02:25.030
  • JUST TALKS AND TALKS AND TALKS.
  • 00:02:25.060 --> 00:02:26.200
  • IT'S UNBELIEVABLE, NEVER STOPS.
  • 00:02:26.230 --> 00:02:28.260
  • BUT I THINK IT'S QUITE A NATURAL THING,
  • 00:02:28.290 --> 00:02:29.290
  • WE ALL KNOW, THAT YOU MEET SOMEONE,
  • 00:02:30.020 --> 00:02:32.280
  • AND YOU'RE WILD AND YOU CAN'T STOP TALKING ABOUT THEM.
  • 00:02:33.010 --> 00:02:35.120
  • WELL TODAY, I WANNA TALK ABOUT WHAT IT IS
  • 00:02:35.150 --> 00:02:38.180
  • WHEN YOU TRULY ENCOUNTER THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:02:38.210 --> 00:02:41.170
  • NOT WHEN YOU ENCOUNTER BORING DEAD RELIGION AND KIND OF GO,
  • 00:02:41.200 --> 00:02:44.150
  • "MAN, THIS THING'S BORING."
  • 00:02:44.180 --> 00:02:45.200
  • BUT WHEN YOU ENCOUNTER THE MAN, JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:02:45.230 --> 00:02:48.140
  • YOU KNOW, I MET HIM 30 YEARS AGO,
  • 00:02:48.170 --> 00:02:50.130
  • AND I PRETTY MUCH HAVEN'T STOPPED TALKING ABOUT HIM
  • 00:02:50.160 --> 00:02:52.090
  • FOR THE LAST 30 YEARS BECAUSE I LOVE HIM.
  • 00:02:52.120 --> 00:02:55.110
  • HE IS FULL OF LOVE AND MERCY AND GRACE AND COMPASSION.
  • 00:02:55.140 --> 00:02:59.110
  • AND HE IS THE MOST AWESOME SAVIOR.
  • 00:02:59.140 --> 00:03:01.030
  • I THANK GOD THAT WE DON'T SERVE SOME DEAD,
  • 00:03:01.060 --> 00:03:03.060
  • BORING RELIGIOUS GOD, BUT A GOD THAT IS ALIVE,
  • 00:03:03.090 --> 00:03:05.240
  • THAT IS FULL OF HEART, THAT IS FULL OF LIFE,
  • 00:03:05.270 --> 00:03:07.140
  • THAT IS FULL OF PURPOSE, THAT IS FULL OF DESTINY.
  • 00:03:07.170 --> 00:03:09.130
  • [CONGREGATION CLAPPING]
  • 00:03:09.160 --> 00:03:10.080
  • YOU KNOW, CHICKS LOVE TO TALK,
  • 00:03:10.110 --> 00:03:12.110
  • AND INSIDE OF YOU GUYS, I KNOW YOU DO.[CHUCKLES]
  • 00:03:12.140 --> 00:03:15.280
  • SO WE'RE GONNA READ THE STORY OUT OF THE BOOK OF JOHN,
  • 00:03:16.010 --> 00:03:19.290
  • ABOUT A CHICK THAT MET JESUS AND JUST COULD NOT BE QUIET.
  • 00:03:20.020 --> 00:03:24.260
  • NOW, I LOVE THE BOOK OF JOHN,
  • 00:03:24.290 --> 00:03:26.280
  • AND I LOVE THE BREADTH OF JESUS'S MINISTRY,
  • 00:03:27.010 --> 00:03:28.290
  • BECAUSE, DO YOU NOTICE LIKE,
  • 00:03:29.020 --> 00:03:30.050
  • JESUS TALKED TO ANYBODY?
  • 00:03:30.080 --> 00:03:31.180
  • YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES WE'RE A LITTLE BIT WEIRD,
  • 00:03:31.210 --> 00:03:33.020
  • WE JUST LIKE TO TALK TO PEOPLE THAT LOOK LIKE US,
  • 00:03:33.050 --> 00:03:35.120
  • THINK LIKE US, ACT LIKE US, VOTE LIKE US, BELIEVE LIKE US,
  • 00:03:35.150 --> 00:03:39.060
  • BUT I LOVE JESUS, BECAUSE HE TALKED TO ANYBODY,
  • 00:03:39.090 --> 00:03:42.240
  • HE TALKED TO PEOPLE YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO TALK TO.
  • 00:03:42.270 --> 00:03:44.280
  • AND HE TALKED TO PEOPLE, HE INCLUDED EVERYONE.
  • 00:03:45.010 --> 00:03:48.080
  • I LOVE THAT ABOUT JESUS.
  • 00:03:48.110 --> 00:03:49.290
  • HIS TABLE IS LONG.
  • 00:03:50.020 --> 00:03:51.050
  • THE GOSPEL SAYS, "WHOSOEVER WILL, SHALL COME TO HIM."
  • 00:03:51.080 --> 00:03:54.170
  • WHOSOEVER WILL.
  • 00:03:54.200 --> 00:03:55.120
  • SO WE ARE GOING TO SEE,
  • 00:03:55.150 --> 00:03:57.070
  • THAT JESUS WAS SOMEWHERE WHERE HE SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN,
  • 00:03:57.100 --> 00:04:00.140
  • TALKING TO SOMEBODY THAT HE SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN TALKING TO.
  • 00:04:00.170 --> 00:04:03.100
  • AND BECAUSE OF THAT, REVIVAL BROKE OUT,
  • 00:04:03.130 --> 00:04:06.220
  • AND LITERALLY CHANGED THAT PART OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:04:06.250 --> 00:04:09.070
  • AND SO, I AM HOPING, UNAPOLOGETICALLY,
  • 00:04:09.100 --> 00:04:11.240
  • I KNOW YOU'VE JUST TUNED IN TODAY,
  • 00:04:11.270 --> 00:04:13.110
  • AND YOU'RE WATCHING THIS, AND I'M TELLING YOU,
  • 00:04:13.140 --> 00:04:15.140
  • YOU'RE NOT WATCHING THIS BY ACCIDENT.
  • 00:04:15.170 --> 00:04:17.060
  • I WANNA STIR UP ON THE INSIDE OF YOU THE GIFT OF GOD
  • 00:04:17.090 --> 00:04:21.040
  • THAT HE'S PUT THERE,
  • 00:04:21.070 --> 00:04:22.090
  • SO THAT YOU BECOME A RADICAL EVANGELIST
  • 00:04:22.120 --> 00:04:25.140
  • FOR THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, THAT WHEREVER YOU GO,
  • 00:04:25.170 --> 00:04:28.060
  • PEOPLE ARE LIKE, MAN, PERSON IS ON FIRE,
  • 00:04:28.090 --> 00:04:31.170
  • I HAVE GOT TO MEET THIS PERSON THAT THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:04:31.200 --> 00:04:34.100
  • SO LET'S GO TO THE BOOK OF JOHN, CHAPTER FOUR.
  • 00:04:34.130 --> 00:04:38.140
  • IT SAYS
  • 00:04:38.170 --> 00:04:39.110
  • IN VERSE ONE.
  • 00:04:39.140 --> 00:04:40.270
  • NOW WHEN JESUS LEARNED THAT THE PHARISEES HAD HEARD
  • 00:04:41.000 --> 00:04:44.070
  • THAT JESUS WAS MAKING
  • 00:04:44.100 --> 00:04:45.200
  • AND BAPTIZING MORE DISCIPLES THAN JOHN,
  • 00:04:45.230 --> 00:04:48.160
  • NOW, I LOVE THIS, BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:04:48.190 --> 00:04:50.020
  • ALTHOUGH JESUS HIMSELF DID NOT BAPTIZE,
  • 00:04:50.050 --> 00:04:52.170
  • BUT ONLY HIS DISCIPLES.
  • 00:04:52.200 --> 00:04:54.020
  • NOW, THIS WAS BEFORE SOCIAL MEDIA,
  • 00:04:54.050 --> 00:04:55.290
  • BUT IT SHOWS YOU THAT,
  • 00:04:56.020 --> 00:04:57.210
  • YOU KNOW, FALSEHOOD CAN GO VIRAL AS WELL.
  • 00:04:57.240 --> 00:05:00.080
  • BECAUSE PEOPLE WERE DISTURBED
  • 00:05:00.110 --> 00:05:02.070
  • THAT JESUS WAS BAPTIZING MORE THAN JOHN,
  • 00:05:02.100 --> 00:05:05.110
  • AND YET THE BIBLE SAYS, JESUS ACTUALLY WASN'T,
  • 00:05:05.140 --> 00:05:07.160
  • HIS DISCIPLES WERE.
  • 00:05:07.190 --> 00:05:08.210
  • BUT YOU KNOW, WHAT'S THE TRUTH IN THEM,
  • 00:05:08.240 --> 00:05:10.090
  • WHEN YOU'RE TELLING A GOOD STORY?
  • 00:05:10.120 --> 00:05:11.220
  • AND SO IT SAYS, HE LEFT JUDEA
  • 00:05:11.250 --> 00:05:13.290
  • AND DEPARTED AGAIN FOR GALILEE.
  • 00:05:14.020 --> 00:05:16.130
  • I'M LAUGHING BECAUSE SOME THINGS JUST DON'T CHANGE.
  • 00:05:16.160 --> 00:05:18.260
  • HAVE YOU NOTICED THAT?
  • 00:05:18.290 --> 00:05:19.290
  • AND HE HAD TO PASS THROUGH SAMARIA.
  • 00:05:20.020 --> 00:05:22.240
  • SO HE CAME TO A TOWN OF SAMARIA CALLED SYCHAR,
  • 00:05:22.270 --> 00:05:25.060
  • NEAR THE FIELD THAT JACOB HAD GIVEN TO HIS SON, JOSEPH.
  • 00:05:25.090 --> 00:05:28.150
  • JACOB'S WELL WAS THERE;
  • 00:05:28.180 --> 00:05:29.230
  • SO JESUS WEARIED AS HE WAS FROM HIS JOURNEY...
  • 00:05:29.260 --> 00:05:33.240
  • DOESN'T THAT REALLY TOUCH YOUR HEART?
  • 00:05:33.270 --> 00:05:35.150
  • JESUS WAS WEARY.
  • 00:05:35.180 --> 00:05:36.290
  • I LOVE TO BE REMINDED OF HIS HUMANITY.
  • 00:05:37.020 --> 00:05:39.010
  • I THINK SOMETIMES PEOPLE THINK
  • 00:05:39.040 --> 00:05:40.110
  • THAT JESUS WAS LIKE THIS GHOST
  • 00:05:40.140 --> 00:05:41.290
  • THAT JUST FLOATED AROUND THE PLANET,
  • 00:05:42.020 --> 00:05:44.000
  • NEVER GOT HUNGRY, NEVER GOT THIRSTY.
  • 00:05:44.030 --> 00:05:45.240
  • BUT SCRIPTURE SAYS NO, NO, NO.
  • 00:05:45.270 --> 00:05:47.000
  • HE WAS JUST LIKE US.
  • 00:05:47.030 --> 00:05:48.050
  • HE WAS WEARY.
  • 00:05:48.080 --> 00:05:49.110
  • HE WAS WEARIED FROM HIS JOURNEY,
  • 00:05:49.140 --> 00:05:51.140
  • WAS SITTING BESIDE THE WELL.
  • 00:05:51.170 --> 00:05:52.260
  • IT WAS ABOUT THE SIXTH HOUR.
  • 00:05:52.290 --> 00:05:54.190
  • SO, THAT POINT IS IN THERE TO SAY,
  • 00:05:54.220 --> 00:05:56.040
  • " HEY, THIS IS THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY,
  • 00:05:56.070 --> 00:05:57.140
  • "IT'S THE HARDEST PART OF THE DAY."
  • 00:05:57.170 --> 00:06:00.070
  • I MEAN, IT WOULD BE HOT IN A DESERT,
  • 00:06:00.100 --> 00:06:02.040
  • NO WONDER HE'S SITTING BY A WELL.
  • 00:06:02.070 --> 00:06:03.180
  • A WOMAN FROM SAMARIA CAME TO DRAW WATER.
  • 00:06:03.210 --> 00:06:05.220
  • JESUS SAID TO HER, "GIVE ME A DRINK."
  • 00:06:05.250 --> 00:06:08.280
  • FOR HIS DISCIPLES HAD GONE AWAY INTO THE CITY TO BUY FOOD.
  • 00:06:09.010 --> 00:06:14.190
  • THAT CRACKS ME UP, LIKE,
  • 00:06:14.220 --> 00:06:15.280
  • YOU KNOW, HOW MANY MEN DOES IT TAKE TO CHANGE A LIGHT BULB?
  • 00:06:16.010 --> 00:06:17.180
  • WELL, HOW MANY MEN DOES IT TAKE TO GO GROCERY SHOPPING?
  • 00:06:17.210 --> 00:06:19.190
  • I MEAN, SERIOUSLY, LIKE 12 GUYS
  • 00:06:19.220 --> 00:06:22.130
  • TO GO AND GET A FEW GROCERIES.
  • 00:06:22.160 --> 00:06:23.210
  • LIKE, WE GO OURSELVES AND CARRY 12 BAGS,
  • 00:06:23.240 --> 00:06:26.040
  • BUT NOW, THAT'S ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:06:26.070 --> 00:06:27.160
  • WE'LL JUST SEND 12 OF YOU, PLEASE DON'T FORGET THE PEAS.
  • 00:06:27.190 --> 00:06:29.270
  • OKAY, HERE WE GO.
  • 00:06:30.000 --> 00:06:31.080
  • THE SAMARITAN WOMAN SAID TO HIM,
  • 00:06:31.110 --> 00:06:33.230
  • "HOW IS IT THAT YOU, A JEW, ASK FOR A DRINK FROM ME,
  • 00:06:33.260 --> 00:06:38.200
  • "A WOMAN OF SAMARIA?"
  • 00:06:38.230 --> 00:06:41.030
  • FOR JEWS HAVE NO DEALINGS WITH THE SAMARITANS.
  • 00:06:41.060 --> 00:06:44.110
  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT,
  • 00:06:44.140 --> 00:06:45.170
  • RACISM AND MISOGYNY WAS ALIVE AND WELL BACK THEN,

  • - HERE, I AM NOW LIVING IN THE UNITED STATES,
  • 00:15:32.210 --> 00:15:35.000
  • AND I'VE JUST BEEN GOBSMACKED,
  • 00:15:35.030 --> 00:15:37.000
  • AS I'VE DISCOVERED MORE AND MORE OF THE HISTORY
  • 00:15:37.030 --> 00:15:39.100
  • OF THIS NATION AND THAT IT WAS FOUNDED ON SLAVERY
  • 00:15:39.130 --> 00:15:42.170
  • AND THE RACISM AND THAT IT HAS INFILTRATED,
  • 00:15:42.200 --> 00:15:44.220
  • SO WE ALL HAVE TO BE CAREFUL,
  • 00:15:44.250 --> 00:15:46.150
  • THAT WE ARE DEALING WITH ATTITUDES OF OUR HEART,
  • 00:15:46.180 --> 00:15:49.100
  • AND THAT WE ARE NEVER LOOKING DOWN AT ONE PEOPLE GROUP
  • 00:15:49.130 --> 00:15:52.120
  • OR ANOTHER PEOPLE GROUP BECAUSE EVERY HUMAN BEING
  • 00:15:52.150 --> 00:15:55.170
  • IS CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF ALMIGHTY GOD.
  • 00:15:55.200 --> 00:15:58.130
  • EVERY HUMAN BEING IS WORTHY OF DIGNITY,
  • 00:15:58.160 --> 00:16:01.080
  • EVERY HUMAN BEING HAS EQUAL VALUE BEFORE GOD.
  • 00:16:01.110 --> 00:16:05.080
  • WE SHOULD RESPECT AND HONOR
  • 00:16:05.110 --> 00:16:07.180
  • AND ESTEEM
  • 00:16:07.210 --> 00:16:08.220
  • AND VALUE EVERY HUMAN BEING,
  • 00:16:08.250 --> 00:16:11.170
  • BECAUSE, EVERY HUMAN BEING BEARS THE IMAGE OF GOD.
  • 00:16:11.200 --> 00:16:15.140
  • SO JESUS, WALK THROUGH SAMARIA.
  • 00:16:15.170 --> 00:16:18.200
  • HE WALKED THROUGH A TOWN,
  • 00:16:18.230 --> 00:16:20.140
  • THAT A JEWISH MAN WOULD NORMALLY NEVER EVER WALK THROUGH,
  • 00:16:20.170 --> 00:16:24.230
  • HE WOULD NORMALLY AVOID IT.
  • 00:16:24.260 --> 00:16:26.170
  • BUT THIS IS WHAT I'VE DISCOVERED.
  • 00:16:26.200 --> 00:16:27.250
  • SOMETIMES, YOU'VE GOT TO GO TO A PLACE
  • 00:16:27.280 --> 00:16:30.240
  • WHERE YOU WOULDN'T NORMALLY GO,
  • 00:16:30.270 --> 00:16:32.100
  • SO THAT YOU CAN MEET PEOPLE THAT YOU WOULDN'T NORMALLY MEET,
  • 00:16:32.130 --> 00:16:35.160
  • SO THAT YOU CAN SEE GOD DO,
  • 00:16:35.190 --> 00:16:37.280
  • WHAT YOU DON'T USUALLY SEE HIM DOING.
  • 00:16:38.010 --> 00:16:40.120
  • A LOT OF US WE DON'T SEE GOD DO MIRACLES,
  • 00:16:40.150 --> 00:16:43.090
  • WE DON'T SEE REVIVAL, WE DON'T SEE PEOPLE BEING SAVED,
  • 00:16:43.120 --> 00:16:46.080
  • BECAUSE WE REFUSE TO GO TO WHERE PEOPLE ARE.
  • 00:16:46.110 --> 00:16:49.000
  • IF YOU DON'T GO, THEY WON'T SHOW.
  • 00:16:49.030 --> 00:16:50.290
  • IF YOU END UP GOING TO WHERE LOST PEOPLE ARE,
  • 00:16:51.020 --> 00:16:54.010
  • GUESS WHAT YOU'RE GONNA DO,
  • 00:16:54.040 --> 00:16:55.080
  • YOU'RE GONNA MEET LOST PEOPLE,
  • 00:16:55.110 --> 00:16:56.260
  • YOU'RE GONNA ENCOUNTER LOST PEOPLE,
  • 00:16:56.290 --> 00:16:58.210
  • YOU'RE GONNA HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:16:58.240 --> 00:17:00.020
  • TO SPEAK ABOUT THE LORD JESUS CHRIST TO LOST PEOPLE,
  • 00:17:00.050 --> 00:17:03.030
  • BUT IF YOU SPEND ALL YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:17:03.060 --> 00:17:05.060
  • ISOLATING YOURSELF FROM WHERE LOST PEOPLE ARE,
  • 00:17:05.090 --> 00:17:08.030
  • HOW WILL YOU EVER MEET THEM,
  • 00:17:08.060 --> 00:17:10.140
  • SO THAT YOU CAN BUILD A RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM,
  • 00:17:10.170 --> 00:17:13.020
  • SO THAT YOU CAN EARN THE RIGHT TO SPEAK ABOUT JESUS TO THEM?
  • 00:17:13.050 --> 00:17:16.160
  • JESUS HIMSELF SAID, YOU KNOW WHAT,
  • 00:17:16.190 --> 00:17:18.140
  • I'M NOT GONNA GET THE ESTABLISHED PATH,
  • 00:17:18.170 --> 00:17:20.090
  • I'M NOT GONNA GO AROUND AND AVOID PEOPLE,
  • 00:17:20.120 --> 00:17:23.100
  • I'M GONNA GO RIGHT INTO THE MIDST OF WHERE PEOPLE ARE AT
  • 00:17:23.130 --> 00:17:26.020
  • SO THAT I CAN ENCOUNTER PEOPLE AND BRING CHANGE
  • 00:17:26.050 --> 00:17:28.060
  • AND TRANSFORMATION INTO MY WORLD.
  • 00:17:28.090 --> 00:17:30.270
  • JESUS WENT THROUGH SAMARIA. PEOPLE SAY TO ME ALL THE TIME,
  • 00:17:31.000 --> 00:17:35.050
  • "CHRIS, YOU SEEM TO HAVE ALL THESE DIVINE APPOINTMENTS."
  • 00:17:35.080 --> 00:17:38.060
  • AND THAT'S BECAUSE I'M INTENTIONAL.
  • 00:17:38.090 --> 00:17:40.010
  • WHEN I'M AT A GYM, IF I GET TO KNOW EVERYBODY AT THE GYM,
  • 00:17:40.040 --> 00:17:43.050
  • AND I'VE KNOWN HIM
  • 00:17:43.080 --> 00:17:44.060
  • AND I'VE BEEN GOING FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS,
  • 00:17:44.090 --> 00:17:45.160
  • I'M LIKE, I'M GOING TO THE GYM,
  • 00:17:45.190 --> 00:17:47.040
  • AND I'M SO SORRY ABOUT MY MEMBERSHIP,
  • 00:17:47.070 --> 00:17:48.210
  • BUT I'M GONNA GO TO A NEW GYM.
  • 00:17:48.240 --> 00:17:50.290
  • WHY? BECAUSE I WANT TO MEET,
  • 00:17:51.020 --> 00:17:52.080
  • I SAY THAT TO MY HUSBAND.
  • 00:17:52.110 --> 00:17:54.030
  • I GO, "OH, YOU KNOW, I'M JUST AROUND TOO MANY SAINTS."
  • 00:17:54.060 --> 00:17:56.220
  • I MEAN, WHEN YOU DO WHAT I DO,
  • 00:17:56.250 --> 00:17:58.060
  • YOU KNOW, I'M ALWAYS SPEAKING AT CHRISTIAN CONFERENCES,
  • 00:17:58.090 --> 00:18:01.010
  • OR TRAVELING OR DOING STUFF,
  • 00:18:01.040 --> 00:18:02.230
  • IF I'M NOT CAREFUL,
  • 00:18:02.260 --> 00:18:03.250
  • THE ONLY PEOPLE I'M GOING TO BE HANGING AROUND
  • 00:18:03.280 --> 00:18:06.060
  • ARE CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:18:06.090 --> 00:18:07.080
  • I LOVE CHRISTIANS, BUT I'M GONNA BE IN WITH YOU
  • 00:18:07.110 --> 00:18:09.010
  • FOR ALL OF ETERNITY.
  • 00:18:09.040 --> 00:18:10.060
  • SO I WANNA MEET SOME PEOPLE THAT ARE NOT CHRISTIANS,
  • 00:18:10.090 --> 00:18:14.000
  • AND THAT THEY'LL BE IN ETERNITY WITH ME AS WELL.
  • 00:18:14.030 --> 00:18:17.000
  • AND SO I DO THINGS INTENTIONALLY.
  • 00:18:17.030 --> 00:18:19.070
  • I OFTEN GO TO DIFFERENT CAFES,
  • 00:18:19.100 --> 00:18:22.020
  • SO I COULD START BUILDING A RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:18:22.050 --> 00:18:24.260
  • WITH, YOU KNOW, THE BARISTA,
  • 00:18:24.290 --> 00:18:26.140
  • EVERYONE KNOWS THAT I LOVE COFFEE,
  • 00:18:26.170 --> 00:18:28.020
  • IT'S NOT AN ADDICTION, IT'S JUST A LOVE.
  • 00:18:28.050 --> 00:18:30.010
  • AND SO, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:18:30.040 --> 00:18:31.150
  • I WILL GO TO DIFFERENT CAFES, I GO TO DIFFERENT RESTAURANTS,
  • 00:18:31.180 --> 00:18:35.010
  • AND I INTENTIONALLY BUILD RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:18:35.040 --> 00:18:38.090
  • I MAKE SURE I TIP WELL, SO THAT THEY WILL REMEMBER ME.
  • 00:18:38.120 --> 00:18:41.250
  • AND I WANT THAT SO THEY CAN'T WAIT TO SERVE ME AGAIN.
  • 00:18:41.280 --> 00:18:44.280
  • AND SO MAN, A TIPPING OPENS A LOT OF DOORS
  • 00:18:45.010 --> 00:18:48.000
  • OF TO BE ABLE TO SPEAK ABOUT THE GOSPEL, IT IS AMAZING.
  • 00:18:48.030 --> 00:18:51.030
  • BUT I'VE GOT PEOPLE GO, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:18:51.060 --> 00:18:52.110
  • "I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU'RE TALKING TO THAT PERSON."
  • 00:18:52.140 --> 00:18:53.290
  • I'M LIKE, "WHY?"
  • 00:18:54.020 --> 00:18:55.070
  • WELL, YOU KNOW, THEY'VE GOT A LOT OF TATTOOS.
  • 00:18:55.100 --> 00:18:57.130
  • I'M LIKE, "HOW DO YOU KNOW I DON'T?"
  • 00:18:57.160 --> 00:18:59.180
  • I DON'T.
  • 00:18:59.210 --> 00:19:00.150
  • [CONGREGATION LAUGHING]
  • 00:19:00.180 --> 00:19:01.260
  • BUT WHAT I'M SAYING IS,
  • 00:19:01.290 --> 00:19:03.110
  • HOW ABSURD THAT WE WOULD BASE ON WHO WE TALKED TO,
  • 00:19:03.140 --> 00:19:07.220
  • ON, YOU KNOW, WHETHER THEY'RE PIERCED
  • 00:19:07.250 --> 00:19:09.140
  • OR WHETHER THEY'RE TATTOOED,
  • 00:19:09.170 --> 00:19:10.200
  • OR WHETHER THEY WERE A CERTAIN THING,
  • 00:19:10.230 --> 00:19:12.140
  • OR WHETHER THEY COME FROM A CERTAIN CULTURE, OR TRADITION,
  • 00:19:12.170 --> 00:19:15.050
  • IT IS AMAZING,
  • 00:19:15.080 --> 00:19:16.120
  • AND HOW WE GET ALL COMFORTABLE
  • 00:19:16.150 --> 00:19:17.200
  • IN OUR LITTLE CHRISTIAN CLIQUES.
  • 00:19:17.230 --> 00:19:19.120
  • AND WE JUST HANG OUT WITH THAT LITTLE CHRISTIANS,
  • 00:19:19.150 --> 00:19:21.100
  • AND WE JUST GO TO OUR LITTLE SAME OLD PLACES.
  • 00:19:21.130 --> 00:19:23.160
  • BUT I LOVE, I'VE LEARNED SO MUCH,
  • 00:19:23.190 --> 00:19:26.160
  • ABOUT THE WORLD FROM HANGING OUT WITH WORLDLY PEOPLE.
  • 00:19:26.190 --> 00:19:30.010
  • IT DOESN'T MEAN I BECAME WORLDLY,
  • 00:19:30.040 --> 00:19:32.070
  • BUT, I'M NOT IGNORANT OF WHAT GOES ON IN THERE.
  • 00:19:32.100 --> 00:19:35.160
  • I AM AS I'VE LEARNED SO MUCH FROM MY NEW TRAINER,
  • 00:19:35.190 --> 00:19:38.170
  • AT THIS GYM THAT I GO TO, I'M LIKE, "PEOPLE DO THAT?
  • 00:19:38.200 --> 00:19:41.060
  • "WHAT REALLY? WOW."
  • 00:19:41.090 --> 00:19:43.000
  • IT'S AMAZING.
  • 00:19:43.030 --> 00:19:44.140
  • I'VE LEARNED A LOT ABOUT THE DATING SCENE,
  • 00:19:44.170 --> 00:19:47.010
  • YOU KNOW, I'VE BEEN MARRIED TO THE SAME GUY FOR 23 YEARS,
  • 00:19:47.040 --> 00:19:49.090
  • SLEEPING TO THE SAME WITH THE SAME GUY FOR 23 YEARS,
  • 00:19:49.120 --> 00:19:51.250
  • I DIDN'T KNOW REALLY HOW IT'S DONE OUT THERE.
  • 00:19:51.280 --> 00:19:54.190
  • BUT, WHOA, IT'S A BIT DIFFERENT, THEY'LL TELL YOU THAT MUCH.
  • 00:19:54.220 --> 00:19:56.160
  • AND SO, I'M LEARNING ABOUT ALL THESE SITES
  • 00:19:56.190 --> 00:19:59.200
  • AND ALL OF THESE SWAPPING, AND I'M LIKE,
  • 00:19:59.230 --> 00:20:01.230
  • BUT MY FACE, I TRY TO KEEP LIKE,
  • 00:20:01.260 --> 00:20:04.000
  • "CHRISTINE, ACT LIKE THIS IS PERFECTLY NORMAL.
  • 00:20:04.030 --> 00:20:05.280
  • " ACT LIKE THIS IS PERFECTLY NORMAL."

  • I'M THE FIRST CALL, I KNOW THAT THEY TEXT ME STRAIGHTAWAY,
  • 00:20:14.090 --> 00:20:16.210
  • CHRIS, WHERE ARE YOU?

  • YOU KNOW, KIND OF, YOU SHOULDN'T DO THAT.
  • 00:20:23.220 --> 00:20:25.160
  • I'M LIKE, I DON'T KNOW WHY CHRISTIANS GET SHOCKED
  • 00:20:25.190 --> 00:20:27.120
  • WHEN NON-CHRISTIANS ACT LIKE NON-CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:20:27.150 --> 00:20:29.010
  • I'M LIKE, [CONGREGATION LAUGHING]
  • 00:20:29.040 --> 00:20:30.090
  • WHY SHOULD THEY ACT? I MEAN, IT'S, YOU KNOW, HARD ENOUGH
  • 00:20:30.120 --> 00:20:32.030
  • GETTING CHRISTIANS TO ACT LIKE CHRISTIANS,
  • 00:20:32.060 --> 00:20:33.130
  • LET ALONE, HAVING NON-CHRISTIANS ACT LIKE CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:20:33.160 --> 00:20:37.100
  • I'M LIKE, I DON'T KNOW WHY WE'RE TRYING

  • TO PUT ALL OUR MORAL STANDARDS ON EVERYONE OUT THERE,
  • 00:20:38.290 --> 00:20:41.050
  • WHEN WE CAN'T EVEN KEEP THEM OURSELVES.
  • 00:20:41.080 --> 00:20:42.180
  • LIKE, IT WOULD BE NICE IF YOU ACTUALLY KEPT IT YOURSELF.

  • [CONGREGATION CLAPPING]

  • 00:20:51.220 --> 00:20:53.160
  • IS THAT, WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU WENT OUT OF YOUR WAY
  • 00:20:53.190 --> 00:20:55.270
  • TO MEET SOMEONE FOR THE FIRST TIME?
  • 00:20:56.000 --> 00:20:58.020
  • YOU MIGHT HAVE JUST TUNED INTO THIS BY ACCIDENT,
  • 00:20:58.050 --> 00:21:00.050
  • AND YOU'RE LIKE, "HOW DID I END UP WITH THIS AUSSIE CHICK,

  • THAT YOU HAVEN'T TUNED IN BY ACCIDENT RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:21:05.160 --> 00:21:07.080
  • THERE'S A GOD IN HEAVEN THAT LOVES YOU.

  • HE'S GOT A PLAN AND A PURPOSE AND A DESTINY FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:21:09.010 --> 00:21:11.280
  • AND JUST IN THE SAME WAY
  • 00:21:12.010 --> 00:21:13.080
  • THAT JESUS IN THE STORY THAT I'VE READ,
  • 00:21:13.110 --> 00:21:15.060
  • WENT OUT OF HIS WAY TO END UP IN A PLACE
  • 00:21:15.090 --> 00:21:17.280
  • THAT MAYBE HE NORMALLY WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN,
  • 00:21:18.010 --> 00:21:19.220
  • HE MET A WOMAN HE NORMALLY WOULDN'T HAVE MET,
  • 00:21:19.250 --> 00:21:22.090
  • RIGHT NOW, RIGHT NOW, I'M TELLING YOU,
  • 00:21:22.120 --> 00:21:24.280
  • YOU HAVE JUST STOPPED ON THIS STATION,

  • AND HERE IS A WOMAN
  • 00:21:28.000 --> 00:21:29.000
  • THAT YOU WOULDN'T NORMALLY HAVE TALKING TO YOU,
  • 00:21:29.030 --> 00:21:31.170
  • TELLING YOU, THAT THERE'S A GOD IN HEAVEN THAT LOVES YOU,
  • 00:21:31.200 --> 00:21:33.290
  • THAT'S GOT A PLAN AND A PURPOSE AND A DESTINY FOR YOU,
  • 00:21:34.020 --> 00:21:36.220
  • A GOD THAT CAN FORGIVE YOU OF ALL OF YOUR SINS,
  • 00:21:36.250 --> 00:21:38.240
  • GIVE YOU A BRAND NEW START TODAY AND A HOPE FOR THE FUTURE,
  • 00:21:38.270 --> 00:21:41.290
  • 'CAUSE THAT KIND OF GOD SAYS,
  • 00:21:42.020 --> 00:21:43.090
  • I MIGHT JUST MESS UP YOUR WHOLE TV PROGRAMMING
  • 00:21:43.120 --> 00:21:46.010
  • SO THAT YOU GET TO HEAR THAT MESSAGE.
  • 00:21:46.040 --> 00:21:48.090
  • JESUS ALWAYS GOES OUT OF HIS WAY TO DROP IN ON PEOPLE
  • 00:21:48.120 --> 00:21:51.000
  • THAT HE LOVES, AND HE'S GOT A PLAN
  • 00:21:51.030 --> 00:21:52.210
  • AND A PURPOSE AND DESTINY FOR.
  • 00:21:52.240 --> 00:21:54.210
  • SO I WANNA ENCOURAGE YOU TO GO,
  • 00:21:54.240 --> 00:21:57.010
  • MAYBE GO TO A DIFFERENT CAFE, GO TO A DIFFERENT RESTAURANT,
  • 00:21:57.040 --> 00:22:00.120
  • GET YOUR GAS AT A DIFFERENT GAS STATION.
  • 00:22:00.150 --> 00:22:02.220
  • I LIKE ALL OF THEIR SO SIMPLE THINGS,
  • 00:22:02.250 --> 00:22:04.240
  • THAT I'M LIKE, "OKAY, CHRIS,
  • 00:22:04.270 --> 00:22:06.030
  • "I'M GONNA BEGIN AND IF I FIND MYSELF THAT I KNOW..."
  • 00:22:06.060 --> 00:22:09.190
  • AND HOW I KNOW, IS I GO TO DIG.
  • 00:22:09.220 --> 00:22:12.010
  • YOU KNOW, EVERYWHERE I GO, LIKE EVERYONE'S JUST SO SWEET.
  • 00:22:12.040 --> 00:22:15.050
  • AND I SAID I NEED TO MEET SOME UNSWEET PEOPLE.
  • 00:22:15.080 --> 00:22:17.120
  • I NEED TO BE AROUND SOME PEOPLE
  • 00:22:17.150 --> 00:22:19.050
  • THAT SAY SOME FOUR LETTER WORDS THAT ARE NOT IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:22:19.080 --> 00:22:21.010
  • THAT'S NOT LOVE.
  • 00:22:21.040 --> 00:22:22.080
  • I THEN I KNOW OKAY,
  • 00:22:22.110 --> 00:22:23.230
  • OKAY, I'M IN THE RIGHT PLACE.
  • 00:22:23.260 --> 00:22:25.220
  • [CONGREGATION LAUGHING]
  • 00:22:25.250 --> 00:22:26.220
  • NOW, I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT GOING ANYWHERE
  • 00:22:26.250 --> 00:22:28.050
  • THAT'S GONNA CAUSE YOU TO STUMBLE.
  • 00:22:28.080 --> 00:22:29.220
  • I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT GOING ANYWHERE
  • 00:22:29.250 --> 00:22:31.130
  • THAT'S GONNA CAUSE YOU TO IN ANY WAY,
  • 00:22:31.160 --> 00:22:34.150
  • COMPROMISE YOUR WITNESS OR NOT BE AN AMBASSADOR FOR CHRIST.
  • 00:22:34.180 --> 00:22:38.000
  • BUT I AM SAYING THAT SOME OF US GET SO CAUGHT UP
  • 00:22:38.030 --> 00:22:41.030
  • IN THE SAME OLD RUTS, WITH THE SAME OLD PEOPLE,
  • 00:22:41.060 --> 00:22:44.070
  • DOING THE SAME OLD THING,
  • 00:22:44.100 --> 00:22:45.150
  • AND THEN WE WONDER WHY WE HAVE NOT ENCOUNTERED ANYONE
  • 00:22:45.180 --> 00:22:50.100
  • THAT DOESN'T KNOW JESUS.
  • 00:22:50.130 --> 00:22:51.220
  • WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU TOLD SOMEONE ABOUT JESUS
  • 00:22:51.250 --> 00:22:55.220
  • FOR THE FIRST TIME?
  • 00:22:55.250 --> 00:22:57.060
  • WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU MET SOMEBODY NEW AND SAID,
  • 00:22:57.090 --> 00:22:59.270
  • "YOU KNOW WHAT, I'M GONNA DO WHAT IT TAKES,
  • 00:23:00.020 --> 00:23:02.270
  • "SO THAT I CAN MEET SOMEONE NEW."
  • 00:23:03.000 --> 00:23:05.260
  • JESUS, THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:23:05.290 --> 00:23:07.150
  • HE HAD TO GO, HE HAD TO GO.
  • 00:23:07.180 --> 00:23:09.190
  • NOW, I WANT YOU KNOW THE GREEK WORD FOR THAT IS CALLED EDEI.
  • 00:23:09.220 --> 00:23:12.120
  • E-D-E-I.
  • 00:23:12.150 --> 00:23:14.080
  • AND THE USE OF THAT WORD, EDIE, THAT JESUS HAD TO,
  • 00:23:14.110 --> 00:23:18.190
  • IMPLIES THAT THERE WAS A DIVINE APPOINTMENT WAITING FOR HIM.
  • 00:23:18.220 --> 00:23:22.010
  • BECAUSE JESUS DOESN'T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING.
  • 00:23:22.040 --> 00:23:23.280
  • HE'S JESUS, HE'S GOD.
  • 00:23:24.010 --> 00:23:25.160
  • HE'S SORT OF WOKE UP TO EARTH.
  • 00:23:25.190 --> 00:23:27.050
  • OOPS, LOOK WHAT I DID.
  • 00:23:27.080 --> 00:23:28.110
  • OKAY, SO HE IS GOD, YOU KNOW, HE'S GOT A LOT POWER.
  • 00:23:28.140 --> 00:23:31.060
  • BUT IT SAYS, HE HAD TO.
  • 00:23:31.090 --> 00:23:32.250
  • THERE WAS SOMETHING THAT IS AS A DIVINE APPOINTMENT
  • 00:23:32.280 --> 00:23:35.080
  • ON THE OTHER SIDE.
  • 00:23:35.110 --> 00:23:36.160
  • I WONDER HOW OFTEN WE JUST RUSHING THROUGH OUR OWN LIFE,
  • 00:23:36.190 --> 00:23:40.130
  • AND WE MISS THE DIVINE APPOINTMENTS,
  • 00:23:40.160 --> 00:23:42.170
  • BECAUSE WE THINK, "I DON'T WANNA GO THAT WAY,
  • 00:23:42.200 --> 00:23:44.240
  • "I DON'T WANNA GO THROUGH THERE,
  • 00:23:44.270 --> 00:23:46.060
  • "I'M GONNA GO THE QUICKEST WAY,
  • 00:23:46.090 --> 00:23:47.120
  • "AND I'M GONNA GO THE SHORTEST WAY,
  • 00:23:47.150 --> 00:23:48.180
  • "AND I'M GONNA GO THE EASIEST WAY,
  • 00:23:48.210 --> 00:23:49.270
  • "AND I'M GONNA GO THE WAY THAT'S GONNA ALLOW ME
  • 00:23:50.000 --> 00:23:51.220
  • "TO DO WHAT I WANNA DO."
  • 00:23:51.250 --> 00:23:53.210
  • WHEN DO WE STOP AND SAY, "YOU KNOW, WHAT, GOD,
  • 00:23:53.240 --> 00:23:55.110
  • "WHICH WAY WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO GO TODAY?"
  • 00:23:55.140 --> 00:23:57.180
  • SOMETIMES I INTENTIONALLY LINGER.
  • 00:23:57.210 --> 00:23:59.140
  • THIS IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE.
  • 00:23:59.170 --> 00:24:01.110
  • WE DON'T NEED TO HAVE A BIG HUGE EVANGELISTIC CRUSADE,
  • 00:24:01.140 --> 00:24:04.200
  • WHAT MOST OF US NEED TO DO,
  • 00:24:04.230 --> 00:24:06.190
  • IS SIMPLY MAYBE,
  • 00:24:06.220 --> 00:24:08.000
  • GET OUR COFFEE AT A DIFFERENT COFFEE SHOP,
  • 00:24:08.030 --> 00:24:10.010
  • OR INTENTIONALLY BUILD A RELATIONSHIP WITH SOMEONE THERE.
  • 00:24:10.040 --> 00:24:12.270
  • MAYBE GO OUT OF OUR WAY, AND SAY,
  • 00:24:13.000 --> 00:24:15.140
  • "YOU KNOW, HOW CAN I DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT TODAY?
  • 00:24:15.170 --> 00:24:18.170
  • "WHERE CAN I GO SOMEWHERE DIFFERENT?"
  • 00:24:18.200 --> 00:24:20.260
  • AND YES, IT MIGHT INCONVENIENCE ME A LITTLE BIT,
  • 00:24:20.290 --> 00:24:23.100
  • YES, IT MIGHT BE OUT OF MY WAY A LITTLE BIT,
  • 00:24:23.130 --> 00:24:26.010
  • YES, IT MIGHT BE A LITTLE BIT FURTHER,
  • 00:24:26.040 --> 00:24:28.010
  • AND I MIGHT HAVE TO SACRIFICE SOMETHING ELSE,
  • 00:24:28.040 --> 00:24:31.030
  • BUT I AM WILLING TO GO WHERE I DON'T NORMALLY GO,
  • 00:24:31.060 --> 00:24:34.260
  • SO THAT I CAN MEET SOME PEOPLE THAT I DON'T NORMALLY MEET.
  • 00:24:34.290 --> 00:24:38.120
  • AND WHEN I START MEETING PEOPLE THAT I DON'T NORMALLY MEET,
  • 00:24:38.150 --> 00:24:41.080
  • I CAN START TALKING TO THEM ABOUT JESUS,
  • 00:24:41.110 --> 00:24:43.220
  • BECAUSE A WHOLE LOT OF PEOPLE THAT ARE IN MY WORLD,
  • 00:24:43.250 --> 00:24:46.140
  • WELL, THEY'RE MOSTLY CHRISTIANS,
  • 00:24:46.170 --> 00:24:47.290
  • AND I'M MOSTLY ALWAYS,
  • 00:24:48.020 --> 00:24:49.080
  • YOU KNOW, WE DON'T EVEN TALK ABOUT JESUS THAT MUCH ANYMORE,
  • 00:24:49.110 --> 00:24:51.110
  • 'CAUSE WE JUST ASSUME THAT WE EACH KNOW HIM.
  • 00:24:51.140 --> 00:24:53.290
  • AND WHAT YOU CAN DO IS FIND YOURSELF,
  • 00:24:54.020 --> 00:24:55.250
  • NEVER INTENTIONALLY TALKING ABOUT JESUS TO ANYONE
  • 00:24:55.280 --> 00:24:59.080
  • BECAUSE YOU HAVEN'T MET ANYONE NEW,
  • 00:24:59.110 --> 00:25:01.170
  • TO BUILD A RELATIONSHIP WITH WHERE YOU CAN SHARE YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:25:01.200 --> 00:25:04.070
  • IT'LL BRING YOU ALIVE, IT'LL BRING YOUR FAITH ALIVE.
  • 00:25:04.100 --> 00:25:07.070
  • SO THE PURPOSE OF ALL OF THIS,
  • 00:25:07.100 --> 00:25:08.250
  • IS THAT WE ARE GONNA BE LIKE JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:25:08.280 --> 00:25:10.240
  • SOMETIMES, WE'RE GONNA MAKE A DECISION,
  • 00:25:10.270 --> 00:25:12.250
  • THAT WE'RE GONNA GO WHERE NO ONE ELSE GOES,
  • 00:25:12.280 --> 00:25:14.160
  • SO THAT WE CAN MEET WHO NO ONE ELSE MEETS,
  • 00:25:14.190 --> 00:25:16.070
  • AND WE GET THE CHANCE TO TELL THEM ABOUT JESUS.
  • 00:25:16.100 --> 00:25:18.260
  • THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO TODAY.
