  • 00:00:01.030 --> 00:00:01.270
  • Ed Young: The church should be
  • 00:00:01.280 --> 00:00:02.260
  • the most creative Institute in the world.
  • 00:00:02.270 --> 00:00:05.180
  • The church is where it happens!
  • 00:00:07.080 --> 00:00:09.080
  • The church is where we find purpose, and meaning, and power!
  • 00:00:09.090 --> 00:00:13.200
  • The church is the living, breathing body of Christ!
  • 00:00:13.210 --> 00:00:19.170
  • Wisdom, though, is seeing life through the perspective of God.
  • 00:00:20.250 --> 00:00:28.140
  • You've never locked eyes with someone
  • 00:00:28.150 --> 00:00:30.080
  • that Jesus did not die for.
  • 00:00:30.090 --> 00:00:32.040
  • Ed Young: Welcome to my home.
  • 00:00:34.200 --> 00:00:36.240
  • This is where I spend a lot of time studying as I prepare for
  • 00:00:36.250 --> 00:00:41.040
  • different messages that you watch each and every week.
  • 00:00:41.050 --> 00:00:45.050
  • Thank you also for allowing me to come into your home,
  • 00:00:45.060 --> 00:00:49.240
  • through the miracle of technology and television.
  • 00:00:49.250 --> 00:00:52.270
  • Sit back and relax and watch this because I truly believe
  • 00:00:52.280 --> 00:00:57.000
  • the next several moments can change the course of your life.
  • 00:00:57.010 --> 00:01:00.260
  • Ed: I want to welcome Troy Aikman, the man of
  • 00:01:02.040 --> 00:01:04.240
  • the hour, too sweet to be sour, the tower of football power.
  • 00:01:04.250 --> 00:01:10.100
  • Troy, great to see you again.
  • 00:01:10.110 --> 00:01:11.180
  • Troy Aikman: Yeah, good to see you.
  • 00:01:11.190 --> 00:01:12.210
  • Ed: Troy, I've known you like since the Korean War.
  • 00:01:12.220 --> 00:01:14.000
  • Troy: A long time.
  • 00:01:14.010 --> 00:01:15.020
  • It's been a long time.
  • 00:01:15.030 --> 00:01:16.100
  • Ed: Yes.
  • 00:01:16.110 --> 00:01:17.130
  • Troy when did you know as a kid like, dang,
  • 00:01:17.140 --> 00:01:20.020
  • I'm an awesome athlete?
  • 00:01:20.030 --> 00:01:22.270
  • I mean, not that, you know, 'cause you're very humble guy.
  • 00:01:22.280 --> 00:01:25.270
  • When did you know like, man, I'm pretty good?
  • 00:01:25.280 --> 00:01:29.130
  • Troy: You know, I picked it up pretty quickly, you know,
  • 00:01:29.140 --> 00:01:33.240
  • I mean right from the very beginning.
  • 00:01:33.250 --> 00:01:35.130
  • I started playing organized sports when I was about seven
  • 00:01:35.140 --> 00:01:37.220
  • years old, and it just kind of came naturally for me.
  • 00:01:37.230 --> 00:01:40.240
  • I worked at it, but it also was very natural.
  • 00:01:40.250 --> 00:01:44.170
  • And so, I had good hand eye coordination.
  • 00:01:44.180 --> 00:01:47.040
  • I wasn't the fastest guy, but I had relatively good quickness,
  • 00:01:47.050 --> 00:01:50.030
  • you know, at that age.
  • 00:01:50.040 --> 00:01:51.200
  • And, you know, I could shoot a basketball and--
  • 00:01:51.210 --> 00:01:53.280
  • Ed: I was blown away.
  • 00:01:53.290 --> 00:01:55.050
  • I played basketball with this guy and I was like, I cannot
  • 00:01:55.060 --> 00:01:58.200
  • believe how good a basketball player you were, you are.
  • 00:01:58.210 --> 00:02:02.070
  • You remember that game we played back in the day?
  • 00:02:02.080 --> 00:02:04.220
  • You don't remember that.
  • 00:02:04.230 --> 00:02:05.220
  • Ed: I do.
  • 00:02:05.230 --> 00:02:06.230
  • Troy: I was a good shooter.
  • 00:02:06.240 --> 00:02:11.060
  • Ed: You were rebounding, passing, shooting, defense.
  • 00:02:11.070 --> 00:02:13.070
  • Troy: I was one of those, you know, and I probably enjoyed
  • 00:02:13.080 --> 00:02:16.160
  • basketball more than the other sports that I play.
  • 00:02:16.170 --> 00:02:21.020
  • Well, because it was the one that I was the least good at
  • 00:02:21.030 --> 00:02:24.170
  • but even though I was decent.
  • 00:02:24.180 --> 00:02:26.110
  • And I also knew it was the one
  • 00:02:26.120 --> 00:02:27.250
  • that I wasn't going to try to further.
  • 00:02:27.260 --> 00:02:29.110
  • I knew I was not gonna go on and play college basketball, so
  • 00:02:29.120 --> 00:02:31.170
  • I tended then to not put as much pressure on myself when I was
  • 00:02:31.180 --> 00:02:34.270
  • growing up playing basketball, and probably had more fun
  • 00:02:34.280 --> 00:02:37.180
  • as a result of that playing.
  • 00:02:37.190 --> 00:02:39.090
  • Ed: You are an amazing parent.
  • 00:02:39.100 --> 00:02:40.210
  • I mean, I know you obviously, I know people that know you,
  • 00:02:40.220 --> 00:02:43.100
  • et cetera.
  • 00:02:43.110 --> 00:02:44.230
  • I was recently just on your Twitter feed looking, you're
  • 00:02:44.240 --> 00:02:47.240
  • serious about parenting?
  • 00:02:47.250 --> 00:02:49.120
  • Troy: Yeah.
  • 00:02:49.130 --> 00:02:50.200
  • Ed: What did you learn from a quarterback that you translate
  • 00:02:50.210 --> 00:02:56.110
  • and transfer to your kids?
  • 00:02:56.120 --> 00:02:58.280
  • Troy: Well, that's a really good question.
  • 00:02:58.290 --> 00:03:01.010
  • And, you know, interestingly enough,
  • 00:03:01.020 --> 00:03:03.150
  • I think about that a lot.
  • 00:03:03.160 --> 00:03:05.150
  • I mean, I think about, I guess, kind of what motivated me
  • 00:03:05.160 --> 00:03:09.190
  • as an athlete, and then how does that then translate
  • 00:03:09.200 --> 00:03:12.080
  • to how I raise my kids.
  • 00:03:12.090 --> 00:03:14.020
  • I try not to overdo it.
  • 00:03:14.030 --> 00:03:15.200
  • But we had this conversation, my oldest daughter and I,
  • 00:03:15.210 --> 00:03:19.020
  • I would take them on these walks.
  • 00:03:19.030 --> 00:03:20.280
  • And we were walking along, this was a couple summers ago, and
  • 00:03:20.290 --> 00:03:24.090
  • I was in one of those moods where I was lecturing them.
  • 00:03:24.100 --> 00:03:28.050
  • And Jordan, my oldest who's now 14, she had been going
  • 00:03:28.060 --> 00:03:31.260
  • to lacrosse, and she was told to practice so much during
  • 00:03:31.270 --> 00:03:34.170
  • the evenings and, you know, on their own.
  • 00:03:34.180 --> 00:03:36.140
  • And she hadn't done it.
  • 00:03:36.150 --> 00:03:37.180
  • So I said, "Yeah, and you haven't even practiced the
  • 00:03:37.190 --> 00:03:39.070
  • lacrosse like your coach told you to."
  • 00:03:39.080 --> 00:03:40.250
  • And walking along and all of a sudden, I don't feel any
  • 00:03:40.260 --> 00:03:43.240
  • footsteps behind me any longer, right?
  • 00:03:43.250 --> 00:03:45.170
  • So, I stop and I kind of turn around, and both of my girls
  • 00:03:45.180 --> 00:03:49.030
  • had just stopped.
  • 00:03:49.040 --> 00:03:50.100
  • And Jordan, I walked back and Jordan says, "Dad, I'm not gonna
  • 00:03:50.110 --> 00:03:53.170
  • be a professional athlete, you need to know that."
  • 00:03:53.180 --> 00:03:57.010
  • And it really was kind of a punch in the stomach to me.
  • 00:03:57.020 --> 00:03:59.170
  • And I bent down and I said, "Darling," I said, "I don't
  • 00:03:59.180 --> 00:04:02.110
  • think you're gonna be a professional athlete,
  • 00:04:02.120 --> 00:04:03.270
  • but you're gonna be something.
  • 00:04:03.280 --> 00:04:06.010
  • You're gonna be something in life.
  • 00:04:06.020 --> 00:04:07.170
  • I mean, I don't know what that is and you may not even know yet
  • 00:04:07.180 --> 00:04:09.240
  • what it is, but you're gonna be, you're gonna go to college.
  • 00:04:09.250 --> 00:04:12.000
  • You're gonna get an education.
  • 00:04:12.010 --> 00:04:13.000
  • You're going to be a teacher.
  • 00:04:13.010 --> 00:04:13.270
  • You're gonna be a doctor.
  • 00:04:13.280 --> 00:04:14.260
  • You're gonna be, you know, whatever it is.
  • 00:04:14.270 --> 00:04:16.130
  • But whatever that thing is that you become, you want to be good
  • 00:04:16.140 --> 00:04:19.180
  • at it and to be good at it, you have to work at it."
  • 00:04:19.190 --> 00:04:22.030
  • And so, that was a little bit of my athletic background and just
  • 00:04:22.040 --> 00:04:25.270
  • trying to explain to them, and I try to impress upon both of my
  • 00:04:25.280 --> 00:04:28.000
  • girls that, you know, if you're gonna be good at anything, and
  • 00:04:28.010 --> 00:04:31.050
  • if something's important to you, you have to invest the time.
  • 00:04:31.060 --> 00:04:33.290
  • And I think that as athletes, we certainly learned that.
  • 00:04:34.000 --> 00:04:36.220
  • Ed: I remember I interviewed you at our church back in the
  • 00:04:36.230 --> 00:04:38.240
  • day, you remember that?
  • 00:04:38.250 --> 00:04:39.240
  • Troy: I sure do. Ed: Okay.
  • 00:04:39.250 --> 00:04:41.210
  • And I remember after the interview, people were like,
  • 00:04:41.220 --> 00:04:43.210
  • "Man, can you see Troy?
  • 00:04:43.220 --> 00:04:44.180
  • Can you believe Troy how good he is?"
  • 00:04:44.190 --> 00:04:45.270
  • And I told people like, well, it doesn't really surprise me
  • 00:04:45.280 --> 00:04:48.170
  • in a way. But how have you done that?
  • 00:04:48.180 --> 00:04:50.130
  • Because you, from All World football, All World announcer.
  • 00:04:50.140 --> 00:04:55.290
  • I work at it just like I did when I was playing, you know?
  • 00:04:56.000 --> 00:04:58.000
  • I mean, you can't fake it, right?
  • 00:04:58.010 --> 00:05:00.050
  • So, I think you gotta put in the time, and I just try to be as
  • 00:05:00.060 --> 00:05:01.280
  • prepared as I can be and be honest, and yet respectful of
  • 00:05:01.290 --> 00:05:07.200
  • the guys that are there doing it.
  • 00:05:07.210 --> 00:05:09.200
  • Because, you know, I know that when I played,
  • 00:05:09.210 --> 00:05:11.120
  • it's not an easy game.
  • 00:05:11.130 --> 00:05:12.270
  • And I don't want to be the armchair quarterback who's
  • 00:05:12.280 --> 00:05:15.090
  • constantly saying, "Well, you know, you gotta do this.
  • 00:05:15.100 --> 00:05:17.060
  • You gotta--" Yeah, I gotta point those things out, but at the
  • 00:05:17.070 --> 00:05:19.040
  • same time, it's hard.
  • 00:05:19.050 --> 00:05:20.120
  • So, I try to, I try to point out maybe, especially with
  • 00:05:20.130 --> 00:05:23.110
  • quarterback play, why a quarterback threw that
  • 00:05:23.120 --> 00:05:26.100
  • interception, or why he did this instead of this, and shed
  • 00:05:26.110 --> 00:05:30.010
  • a little light on that.
  • 00:05:30.020 --> 00:05:31.050
  • And then at the same time, try to be honest about it.
  • 00:05:31.060 --> 00:05:34.090
  • Ed: Have you--I know you've worked your rear off but has
  • 00:05:34.100 --> 00:05:37.270
  • anyone worked with you in speaking?
  • 00:05:37.280 --> 00:05:40.090
  • Troy: No, I've never had any formal coaching.
  • 00:05:40.100 --> 00:05:43.060
  • Ed: That's incredible. I'm serious.
  • 00:05:43.070 --> 00:05:45.130
  • Troy: Well, I think that the one thing that we get away
  • 00:05:45.140 --> 00:05:48.060
  • with as analysts, whereas a play by play guy,
  • 00:05:48.070 --> 00:05:49.290
  • like my partner's Joe Buck.
  • 00:05:50.000 --> 00:05:51.050
  • He was an English major and, you know, they get critiqued
  • 00:05:51.060 --> 00:05:56.100
  • on a little different scale. You know what I mean?
  • 00:05:56.110 --> 00:05:58.090
  • We come into it with a very low bar.
  • 00:05:58.100 --> 00:06:00.180
  • Right, as an athlete, we come in and nobody thinks--
  • 00:06:00.190 --> 00:06:05.190
  • you're saying, wow, you can actually talk.
  • 00:06:05.200 --> 00:06:08.140
  • I mean, how did you do that?
  • 00:06:08.150 --> 00:06:10.190
  • So we, we get a little bit more leeway than
  • 00:06:10.200 --> 00:06:14.010
  • some of the others in our business.
  • 00:06:14.020 --> 00:06:16.100
  • Ed: Do they ever like say,
  • 00:06:16.110 --> 00:06:18.000
  • "Troy, you say this phrase too much"?
  • 00:06:18.010 --> 00:06:19.160
  • Troy: Oh, yeah.
  • 00:06:19.170 --> 00:06:20.250
  • Ed: Okay, tell me the phrases.
  • 00:06:20.260 --> 00:06:22.100
  • Troy: Well, Joe, well, well, the one phrase Joe would say
  • 00:06:22.110 --> 00:06:25.100
  • something, and my response to that very early on was always,
  • 00:06:25.110 --> 00:06:28.040
  • "You know, you're absolutely right."
  • 00:06:28.050 --> 00:06:30.040
  • And then boom, I'd go on and say what I'd say.
  • 00:06:30.050 --> 00:06:32.120
  • And then finally my producer said,
  • 00:06:32.130 --> 00:06:34.290
  • "You don't have to say that.
  • 00:06:35.000 --> 00:06:36.150
  • Just say what you're gonna say."
  • 00:06:36.160 --> 00:06:37.250
  • And, you know, there are little things that you find yourself
  • 00:06:37.260 --> 00:06:41.010
  • saying, and you've gotta, either you have to pick it up when you
  • 00:06:41.020 --> 00:06:44.270
  • go back and you watch the tape, or you're hopeful that you do
  • 00:06:44.280 --> 00:06:47.210
  • have a producer, or a friend at home, or somebody that can be,
  • 00:06:47.220 --> 00:06:50.210
  • you know, critically honest and say, "Hey, look, this doesn't
  • 00:06:50.220 --> 00:06:54.080
  • work."
  • 00:06:54.090 --> 00:06:55.130
  • Ed: If I go to a game, I remember back in the day, you
  • 00:06:55.140 --> 00:06:58.040
  • know, people would criticize you, criticize anytime we do
  • 00:06:58.050 --> 00:07:01.070
  • anything, as you know, people criticize.
  • 00:07:01.080 --> 00:07:02.260
  • I heard you say this one time, you said, "Ed, whatever someone
  • 00:07:02.270 --> 00:07:06.230
  • is thinking in the stands or even in the media," you said,
  • 00:07:06.240 --> 00:07:11.180
  • "we've thought about it thousands of times already."
  • 00:07:11.190 --> 00:07:15.110
  • That's a brilliant line.
  • 00:07:15.120 --> 00:07:16.200
  • What do you tell people, leaders, others about criticism?
  • 00:07:16.210 --> 00:07:21.210
  • Troy: Well, it's an interesting question because
  • 00:07:24.010 --> 00:07:25.180
  • we're at a different time now 'cause everyone has a platform
  • 00:07:25.190 --> 00:07:29.070
  • to express the criticism, so if you want to see criticism, you
  • 00:07:29.080 --> 00:07:33.210
  • know, do a Twitter search on any broadcaster's name, mine
  • 00:07:33.220 --> 00:07:37.240
  • included, during the actual broadcast.
  • 00:07:37.250 --> 00:07:40.130
  • I mean, it--you know, and if you go back and you search your name
  • 00:07:40.140 --> 00:07:43.280
  • and you see what a lot of people are talking about, and it's not
  • 00:07:43.290 --> 00:07:47.230
  • favorable.
  • 00:07:47.240 --> 00:07:48.200
  • People just don't say positive things.
  • 00:07:48.210 --> 00:07:50.030
  • I think, you know, what I get from it is, I know when I hear
  • 00:07:50.040 --> 00:07:54.050
  • critics if there's some validity to what they're saying, and say,
  • 00:07:54.060 --> 00:07:58.020
  • "Okay, well, okay, well, I respect that person, and I think
  • 00:07:58.030 --> 00:08:02.040
  • there is some truth to what they're saying."
  • 00:08:02.050 --> 00:08:03.270
  • And to me, then that's very constructive.
  • 00:08:03.280 --> 00:08:06.060
  • You know, the other side of it, if it's criticism, you know,
  • 00:08:06.070 --> 00:08:09.160
  • there's a lot of, you know, mean-spirited, hateful, you
  • 00:08:09.170 --> 00:08:12.190
  • know, people, and you just try to put that in its proper
  • 00:08:12.200 --> 00:08:16.210
  • category as well.
  • 00:08:16.220 --> 00:08:17.290
  • And I don't know, I think we're at a time, especially for young
  • 00:08:18.000 --> 00:08:21.040
  • kids, it's hard. It's really hard.
  • 00:08:21.050 --> 00:08:22.240
  • I mean, I got my girls, and they're on the Snapchat, and,
  • 00:08:22.250 --> 00:08:26.270
  • you know, Instagram, and, you know, all that kind of stuff.
  • 00:08:26.280 --> 00:08:29.210
  • And, you know, occasionally they'll run into me and say,
  • 00:08:29.220 --> 00:08:32.000
  • "Dad, look at this," and they'll be--they'll have their feelings
  • 00:08:32.010 --> 00:08:33.280
  • hurt.
  • 00:08:33.290 --> 00:08:34.230
  • And we gotta sit and talk about it.
  • 00:08:34.240 --> 00:08:36.030
  • But I don't know that I have a great answer for it, other than
  • 00:08:36.040 --> 00:08:40.140
  • just really, I guess, trying to evaluate where exactly the
  • 00:08:40.150 --> 00:08:44.060
  • criticism's coming from because sometimes you can learn a lot
  • 00:08:44.070 --> 00:08:47.170
  • from it if it's coming from the right people.
  • 00:08:47.180 --> 00:08:50.260
  • Ed: And they have the right tenor and tone.
  • 00:08:50.270 --> 00:08:53.110
  • Sometimes I tell young people it's like, I don't know, it's
  • 00:08:53.120 --> 00:08:57.090
  • like social media is his Sports Center living, highlight reel
  • 00:08:57.100 --> 00:09:00.230
  • living.
  • 00:09:00.240 --> 00:09:02.000
  • It's not really the real thing, so I think it's important who
  • 00:09:02.010 --> 00:09:06.290
  • you listen to good, bad, or ugly.
  • 00:09:07.000 --> 00:09:09.020
  • Troy, I got something I gotta share with you.
  • 00:09:09.030 --> 00:09:10.180
  • We're almost done.
  • 00:09:10.190 --> 00:09:12.040
  • Troy, I wrote this play out on a napkin.
  • 00:09:12.050 --> 00:09:15.220
  • And in my opinion, Troy, even though you're Hall of Fame,
  • 00:09:15.230 --> 00:09:20.130
  • whatever, I think you were even underrated.
  • 00:09:20.140 --> 00:09:21.280
  • You're one of the best quarterbacks ever.
  • 00:09:21.290 --> 00:09:25.020
  • But Troy, I know, I think if you'd have run this play about
  • 00:09:25.030 --> 00:09:29.010
  • two or three times a game, I think you'd have a longer
  • 00:09:29.020 --> 00:09:31.160
  • career. What do you think?
  • 00:09:31.170 --> 00:09:33.270
  • Troy: I like it.
  • 00:09:33.280 --> 00:09:36.100
  • Ed: And Troy, I even drew it out.
  • 00:09:36.110 --> 00:09:39.210
  • See, I didn't draw it out for Romo, but I took him at
  • 00:09:39.220 --> 00:09:42.100
  • number eight.
  • 00:09:42.110 --> 00:09:43.160
  • What do you what think about that if like you drop back,
  • 00:09:43.170 --> 00:09:46.260
  • Statue of Liberty, maybe like Michael Irvin, whatever.
  • 00:09:46.270 --> 00:09:50.130
  • When you come--where would he be?
  • 00:09:50.140 --> 00:09:51.180
  • Troy: That's old school.
  • 00:09:51.190 --> 00:09:52.140
  • Irvin would have been over here.
  • 00:09:52.150 --> 00:09:54.190
  • Yeah, he would have been come back around.
  • 00:09:54.200 --> 00:09:57.250
  • I don't know if we'd have fooled anybody, but it would have
  • 00:09:57.260 --> 00:09:59.290
  • looked good.
  • 00:10:00.000 --> 00:10:01.010
  • Ed: Yeah, but Troy, so the Statue of Liberty.
  • 00:10:01.020 --> 00:10:03.090
  • So, you're saying it would change your career, aren't you,
  • 00:10:03.100 --> 00:10:05.160
  • right?
  • 00:10:05.170 --> 00:10:06.110
  • You're saying--
  • 00:10:06.120 --> 00:10:07.120
  • Troy: Well, yeah, you are, I'll go along with it.
  • 00:10:07.130 --> 00:10:10.030
  • Ed: So, the Statue of Liberty is this, you go back right and
  • 00:10:10.040 --> 00:10:13.050
  • like, like your passing and they take it from you like, or do you
  • 00:10:13.060 --> 00:10:16.270
  • hand it off behind you? How do you do it?
  • 00:10:16.280 --> 00:10:18.100
  • Troy: No, well, I've never actually seen it run, but I
  • 00:10:18.110 --> 00:10:20.230
  • guess, you know, you act like you're passing but they come
  • 00:10:20.240 --> 00:10:22.250
  • running by and take it off your hand.
  • 00:10:22.260 --> 00:10:24.130
  • Ed: I used to do that like in touch football, flag football.
  • 00:10:24.140 --> 00:10:26.200
  • Troy: How'd it work?
  • 00:10:26.210 --> 00:10:28.160
  • Ed: Oh, incredible, incredible.
  • 00:10:28.170 --> 00:10:30.210
  • Troy: I'll pass it on to Jason Garrett, we'll see if
  • 00:10:30.220 --> 00:10:32.190
  • maybe they'll run it.
  • 00:10:32.200 --> 00:10:33.180
  • Ed: Yeah, you do that, that would be excellent.
  • 00:10:33.190 --> 00:10:36.290
  • Troy, can you imitate Jerry Jones very well?
  • 00:10:37.000 --> 00:10:39.040
  • Troy: I can't.
  • 00:10:39.050 --> 00:10:41.050
  • Ed: Okay, how's this sound?
  • 00:10:41.060 --> 00:10:44.180
  • "I tell you, the best quarterback we've ever had is
  • 00:10:44.190 --> 00:10:46.210
  • Troy Aikman."
  • 00:10:46.220 --> 00:10:48.220
  • Is that pretty good?
  • 00:10:50.130 --> 00:10:52.000
  • Troy: Pretty good.
  • 00:10:52.010 --> 00:10:53.200
  • Ed: I gotta--so, Troy, though, Okay, Troy.
  • 00:10:53.210 --> 00:10:56.050
  • I've been doing this.
  • 00:10:56.060 --> 00:10:57.250
  • I made this up.
  • 00:10:57.260 --> 00:10:59.160
  • Okay, I call this the hug illusion.
  • 00:10:59.170 --> 00:11:01.150
  • You know, I was back in the day, give me five, whatever.
  • 00:11:01.160 --> 00:11:03.230
  • Well, now, you know, all the cool people, you know, it's all
  • 00:11:03.240 --> 00:11:07.140
  • this, what's up, man?
  • 00:11:07.150 --> 00:11:08.220
  • You know, but that's all right, but I invented this and I shared
  • 00:11:08.230 --> 00:11:13.030
  • this with a couple people.
  • 00:11:13.040 --> 00:11:14.100
  • It's called the hug illusion and you powerful guy, strong guy,
  • 00:11:14.110 --> 00:11:18.160
  • Troy, a lot of stress.
  • 00:11:18.170 --> 00:11:20.230
  • Here we go, watch this.
  • 00:11:20.240 --> 00:11:22.000
  • You go here, boom, boom, boom, and just boom, on the shoulder.
  • 00:11:22.010 --> 00:11:25.160
  • Let me tell you what it does, gives you a nanosecond of rest.
  • 00:11:25.170 --> 00:11:29.050
  • What do you think?
  • 00:11:29.060 --> 00:11:31.050
  • Boom, boom, that's it.
  • 00:11:31.060 --> 00:11:33.070
  • Maybe you and Joe Buck or whoever?
  • 00:11:33.080 --> 00:11:36.230
  • How you like it?
  • 00:11:36.240 --> 00:11:37.260
  • Troy: It's not bad.
  • 00:11:37.270 --> 00:11:39.130
  • It's not bad.
  • 00:11:39.140 --> 00:11:40.190
  • You just have to explain it before you do it each time.
  • 00:11:40.200 --> 00:11:42.110
  • Ed: February 19 through the 20, our Creative Church
  • 00:11:47.120 --> 00:11:51.020
  • Conference is happening again.
  • 00:11:51.030 --> 00:11:53.100
  • Have you seen the speaking list?
  • 00:11:53.110 --> 00:11:55.180
  • Louis Giglio: God isn't just interested in getting you to do
  • 00:11:55.190 --> 00:11:57.230
  • something, he wants you to understand that he sees you
  • 00:11:57.240 --> 00:12:01.170
  • just like you are.
  • 00:12:01.180 --> 00:12:02.290
  • Randy Bezet: Get your eyes off the hazards in your life,
  • 00:12:03.000 --> 00:12:05.090
  • get your eyes on Jesus.
  • 00:12:05.100 --> 00:12:07.020
  • Ed: The gates of hell will not prevail against the church.
  • 00:12:07.030 --> 00:12:10.130
  • Phil Dooley: There are people out there who are gonna try to
  • 00:12:10.140 --> 00:12:13.020
  • take your hope from you, but you gotta hold on to it.
  • 00:12:13.030 --> 00:12:14.260
  • Ed: It will revolutionize your life.
  • 00:12:14.270 --> 00:12:17.070
  • Make sure that you are here for C3.
  • 00:12:17.080 --> 00:12:21.280
  • Ed: What is a fan?
  • 00:12:27.030 --> 00:12:28.040
  • Are you a fan?
  • 00:12:28.050 --> 00:12:29.010
  • What is a fan?
  • 00:12:29.020 --> 00:12:30.060
  • A fan is an enthusiastic follower.
  • 00:12:30.070 --> 00:12:35.080
  • As you look at the life of Jesus, he challenged a lot of
  • 00:12:35.090 --> 00:12:38.280
  • people to do a lot of following.
  • 00:12:38.290 --> 00:12:44.020
  • He challenged children.
  • 00:12:44.030 --> 00:12:45.020
  • He challenged singles.
  • 00:12:45.030 --> 00:12:46.040
  • He challenged married adults.
  • 00:12:46.050 --> 00:12:48.040
  • He challenged the rich, the poor.
  • 00:12:48.050 --> 00:12:50.210
  • He challenged the depressed. He challenged the impressed.
  • 00:12:50.220 --> 00:12:53.010
  • He challenged all sorts of people to follow him.
  • 00:12:53.020 --> 00:13:00.140
  • He said, "Come and follow me," over and over and over.
  • 00:13:00.150 --> 00:13:03.270
  • If Jesus were right here on this stage, he might just say,
  • 00:13:03.280 --> 00:13:12.110
  • "Become a fan, become an enthusiastic follower of me."
  • 00:13:12.120 --> 00:13:21.240
  • Because the word "fan" is an enthusiastic follower.
  • 00:13:21.250 --> 00:13:26.040
  • We're fans.
  • 00:13:26.050 --> 00:13:27.190
  • Have you ever wondered why we're fans?
  • 00:13:27.200 --> 00:13:30.250
  • Have you ever thought about that?
  • 00:13:30.260 --> 00:13:32.050
  • No one ever taught me how to become a fan, I just am a fan.
  • 00:13:32.060 --> 00:13:36.150
  • When a touchdown is scored, yeah!
  • 00:13:36.160 --> 00:13:38.060
  • No one taught me how to do that.
  • 00:13:38.070 --> 00:13:39.170
  • When something good happens, whoa!
  • 00:13:39.180 --> 00:13:43.020
  • Yeah.
  • 00:13:43.030 --> 00:13:44.200
  • No one taught me that, I just know how to do it.
  • 00:13:44.210 --> 00:13:47.220
  • A fan is intrinsic.
  • 00:13:47.230 --> 00:13:49.070
  • It's something inside of us.
  • 00:13:49.080 --> 00:13:51.190
  • It's something that we are.
  • 00:13:51.200 --> 00:13:53.190
  • We're fans, aren't we? We're fans.
  • 00:13:53.200 --> 00:13:55.220
  • We're enthusiastic followers.
  • 00:13:55.230 --> 00:13:57.270
  • We're fans of golf.
  • 00:13:57.280 --> 00:13:59.030
  • A lot of people, I mean you're a true follower of golf.
  • 00:13:59.040 --> 00:14:02.190
  • Others here, maybe you follow tennis, you're an enthusiastic
  • 00:14:02.200 --> 00:14:06.100
  • follower of tennis.
  • 00:14:06.110 --> 00:14:07.060
  • It could be triathletes, triathlons.
  • 00:14:07.070 --> 00:14:11.000
  • It could be marathons.
  • 00:14:11.010 --> 00:14:12.130
  • It could be, it could be fishing.
  • 00:14:12.140 --> 00:14:14.230
  • That's a biblical sport.
  • 00:14:14.240 --> 00:14:16.050
  • It could be hunting.
  • 00:14:16.060 --> 00:14:17.250
  • It could be, yeah, thank you.
  • 00:14:17.260 --> 00:14:19.090
  • It could be fashion.
  • 00:14:19.100 --> 00:14:20.080
  • It could be anything.
  • 00:14:20.090 --> 00:14:21.170
  • It could be horses.
  • 00:14:21.180 --> 00:14:22.200
  • People follow.
  • 00:14:22.210 --> 00:14:24.030
  • People are a fan of certain things.
  • 00:14:24.040 --> 00:14:26.240
  • I believe, and if you think about it, I believe that in the
  • 00:14:26.250 --> 00:14:30.170
  • depth of our being, God has placed this desire there to be a
  • 00:14:30.180 --> 00:14:35.110
  • fan.
  • 00:14:35.120 --> 00:14:36.090
  • It's a God thing.
  • 00:14:36.100 --> 00:14:38.210
  • So often, though, we're so devoted to certain things that
  • 00:14:38.220 --> 00:14:44.140
  • we can, if we're not careful, waste our worship.
  • 00:14:44.150 --> 00:14:48.240
  • We can, if we're not careful, decaffeinate our devotion.
  • 00:14:48.250 --> 00:14:54.170
  • Obviously, we're to enjoy things, the Bible says that.
  • 00:14:54.180 --> 00:14:57.000
  • We're to enjoy different things and chase after different
  • 00:14:57.010 --> 00:15:00.030
  • things, however, we should become an enthusiastic follower.
  • 00:15:00.040 --> 00:15:06.010
  • That's God's design.
  • 00:15:06.020 --> 00:15:08.020
  • We should become an enthusiastic follower of Jesus.
  • 00:15:08.030 --> 00:15:12.190
  • We're hardwired for that.
  • 00:15:12.200 --> 00:15:16.100
  • Think back in your mind.
  • 00:15:16.110 --> 00:15:18.120
  • Think back to the first time you ever recognized a fan.
  • 00:15:18.130 --> 00:15:21.180
  • I think the first time I ever recognized someone who was a
  • 00:15:21.190 --> 00:15:24.250
  • fan, or maybe they were trying to be a fan, was when my parents
  • 00:15:24.260 --> 00:15:27.180
  • would drag me to see the University of South Carolina
  • 00:15:27.190 --> 00:15:30.140
  • play, back in the day.
  • 00:15:30.150 --> 00:15:32.000
  • I was like maybe in the fourth grade.
  • 00:15:32.010 --> 00:15:35.040
  • I remember sitting there in that stadium.
  • 00:15:35.050 --> 00:15:38.220
  • There was the guy behind us and whenever the South Carolina
  • 00:15:38.230 --> 00:15:42.150
  • Gamecocks would make a mistake, this guy would do this, boo.
  • 00:15:42.160 --> 00:15:49.100
  • Scared me to death.
  • 00:15:50.150 --> 00:15:53.220
  • He would drink out of his flask, boo!
  • 00:15:53.230 --> 00:15:58.040
  • He got worse and worse.
  • 00:15:58.250 --> 00:16:00.090
  • I was fearful to go to the games because of this so-called fan.
  • 00:16:00.100 --> 00:16:07.170
  • He definitely was a fair weather fan.
  • 00:16:07.180 --> 00:16:11.220
  • And we have a lot of fair weather fans here.
  • 00:16:11.230 --> 00:16:13.270
  • That's just the way it is.
  • 00:16:13.280 --> 00:16:15.040
  • But if you're a true fan, you don't go from the Cowboys to the
  • 00:16:15.050 --> 00:16:18.080
  • Giants, the Giants to the Philadelphia Eagles, from the
  • 00:16:18.090 --> 00:16:21.220
  • Eagles to the Miami Dolphins.
  • 00:16:21.230 --> 00:16:23.140
  • No, no, no, you are a fan.
  • 00:16:23.150 --> 00:16:26.150
  • You are full-on.
  • 00:16:26.160 --> 00:16:29.200
  • Number one, here's what it means to be a True fan.
  • 00:16:29.210 --> 00:16:32.140
  • real fans, are you a real fan?
  • 00:16:32.150 --> 00:16:34.170
  • Real fans are emotional.
  • 00:16:34.180 --> 00:16:38.020
  • They're emotional.
  • 00:16:38.030 --> 00:16:40.010
  • I think about Florida State.
  • 00:16:41.000 --> 00:16:44.160
  • Back in the, day I had the opportunity to play basketball
  • 00:16:44.170 --> 00:16:47.230
  • at Florida State.
  • 00:16:47.240 --> 00:16:49.000
  • I spent most of my career on the bench, but I did start several
  • 00:16:49.010 --> 00:16:51.070
  • games. You can look it up.
  • 00:16:51.080 --> 00:16:52.170
  • My lifetime average I think was 0.7 per game.
  • 00:16:52.180 --> 00:16:54.210
  • Anyway, whenever I would hear the Florida State fight song,
  • 00:16:54.220 --> 00:17:00.270
  • something would happen to me.
  • 00:17:00.280 --> 00:17:05.220
  • It's the best fight song out there.
  • 00:17:05.230 --> 00:17:07.230
  • No other school can't compete with that fight song.
  • 00:17:09.280 --> 00:17:14.020
  • You know it.
  • 00:17:14.030 --> 00:17:16.130
  • Yeah okay.
  • 00:17:19.070 --> 00:17:21.000
  • Sometimes I have to confess, if I'm like in a bad mood, or maybe
  • 00:17:21.010 --> 00:17:26.080
  • I don't want to speak, I'll just crank that fight song up in
  • 00:17:26.090 --> 00:17:29.230
  • my office, run down the tunnel, and I'm ready.
  • 00:17:29.240 --> 00:17:34.250
  • I saw some of the Florida State fans.
  • 00:17:34.260 --> 00:17:38.050
  • Yeah, I've been there.
  • 00:17:38.060 --> 00:17:40.050
  • Those fight songs do something, don't they?
  • 00:17:40.060 --> 00:17:41.190
  • Whoa, they create emotion.
  • 00:17:41.200 --> 00:17:45.130
  • Do you realize already we played some fight songs in this
  • 00:17:45.140 --> 00:17:50.100
  • stadium?
  • 00:17:50.110 --> 00:17:51.290
  • You might call them worship songs.
  • 00:17:52.000 --> 00:17:54.170
  • They're fight songs because remember, we're fighting a
  • 00:17:54.180 --> 00:17:57.250
  • battle.
  • 00:17:57.260 --> 00:17:59.100
  • Remember, we're pushing the ball up field.
  • 00:17:59.110 --> 00:18:02.110
  • Remember, we're playing offense.
  • 00:18:02.120 --> 00:18:04.260
  • Remember, we're studying the strategy of the enemy.
  • 00:18:04.270 --> 00:18:08.080
  • Remember, we are warriors.
  • 00:18:08.090 --> 00:18:11.000
  • Remember, we're not fighting for victory, we're fighting from
  • 00:18:11.010 --> 00:18:14.270
  • victory, so we should get into fight songs.
  • 00:18:14.280 --> 00:18:21.080
  • And it blows me away how people will go to AT&T Stadium, lose
  • 00:18:21.090 --> 00:18:27.250
  • their absolute mind dancing, singing, painting your face,
  • 00:18:27.260 --> 00:18:35.210
  • spending squillions of dollars on parking, and overpriced junk
  • 00:18:35.220 --> 00:18:40.290
  • food, and adult beverages, sitting in a crammed stadium
  • 00:18:41.000 --> 00:18:46.010
  • watching a bunch of genetic freaks push a pigskin with air
  • 00:18:46.020 --> 00:18:50.230
  • in it up and down a green field.
  • 00:18:50.240 --> 00:18:52.230
  • And then you walk into church, "Man, the church is so loud.
  • 00:18:52.240 --> 00:18:57.110
  • I'm not sure about it.
  • 00:18:57.120 --> 00:18:58.280
  • I don't know about these songs.
  • 00:18:58.290 --> 00:19:02.020
  • I didn't grow up that way, and I don't know.
  • 00:19:02.030 --> 00:19:06.220
  • It's kind of entertaining a little bit, and I'm not sure.
  • 00:19:06.230 --> 00:19:12.050
  • I'm--I just want to go to a half-empty church, and a
  • 00:19:12.060 --> 00:19:15.250
  • half-empty parking lot and hear a sermon that's half empty."
  • 00:19:15.260 --> 00:19:20.240
  • No, no, no, no, sorry, sorry.
  • 00:19:20.250 --> 00:19:23.010
  • That's not what the Bible says.
  • 00:19:23.020 --> 00:19:26.100
  • We're emotional creatures.
  • 00:19:26.110 --> 00:19:27.240
  • God has feelings too.
  • 00:19:27.250 --> 00:19:29.110
  • He gave us emotion and the Bible says in Psalm 47, verse 1, "Oh,
  • 00:19:29.120 --> 00:19:33.220
  • clap.
  • 00:19:33.230 --> 00:19:35.080
  • clap your hands all ye peoples.
  • 00:19:35.090 --> 00:19:38.220
  • Shout out to God with a voice of victory.
  • 00:19:38.230 --> 00:19:41.290
  • V-I-C-T-O-R-Y, victory, victory, that's our cry.
  • 00:19:45.020 --> 00:19:49.100
  • V-I-C-T-O-R-Y, V-I-C-T-O-R-Y.
  • 00:19:49.110 --> 00:19:52.110
  • Heaven is not gonna be this quiet place.
  • 00:19:52.120 --> 00:19:57.230
  • It's not gonna be a stained-glass fortress with
  • 00:19:57.240 --> 00:19:59.290
  • organ music.
  • 00:20:00.000 --> 00:20:02.060
  • That's not gonna be it.
  • 00:20:02.070 --> 00:20:04.040
  • I'm mean, they'll have some--they'll be some times in
  • 00:20:04.050 --> 00:20:05.290
  • heaven where it's silent, but I'm telling you, it's gonna be
  • 00:20:06.000 --> 00:20:09.240
  • loud.
  • 00:20:09.250 --> 00:20:11.060
  • Billions of people, it's not gonna be a small place.
  • 00:20:11.070 --> 00:20:15.280
  • It's gonna--we're gonna have worship.
  • 00:20:15.290 --> 00:20:18.150
  • We're gonna have music.
  • 00:20:18.160 --> 00:20:21.060
  • It's just gonna be a sight.
  • 00:20:21.070 --> 00:20:22.140
  • So, we have to understand something, we're made to express
  • 00:20:22.150 --> 00:20:26.020
  • stuff.
  • 00:20:26.030 --> 00:20:27.000
  • We're made to worship God with emotion.
  • 00:20:27.010 --> 00:20:30.040
  • We're made to be enthusiastic followers of God.
  • 00:20:30.050 --> 00:20:34.080
  • Enthusiasm, you know what the word means enthusiasm?
  • 00:20:34.090 --> 00:20:37.170
  • In the original language en theos, in God.
  • 00:20:37.180 --> 00:20:41.080
  • So, if I'm in God, I'm gonna be enthusiastic.
  • 00:20:41.090 --> 00:20:43.280
  • Are you and enthusiastic follower?
  • 00:20:46.100 --> 00:20:49.050
  • If you are, you're emotional, you're emotional.
  • 00:20:49.060 --> 00:20:53.220
  • Notice too the second thing real fans not only are emotional,
  • 00:20:53.230 --> 00:20:58.080
  • they're faithful.
  • 00:20:58.090 --> 00:21:00.110
  • They're faithful.
  • 00:21:00.120 --> 00:21:01.070
  • They're like devoted.
  • 00:21:01.080 --> 00:21:03.080
  • The Bible says commit your way to the Lord, trust in him and he
  • 00:21:03.090 --> 00:21:07.160
  • will do this.
  • 00:21:07.170 --> 00:21:12.030
  • I considered myself a real full-on Cowboy fan in the '90s.
  • 00:21:12.040 --> 00:21:19.040
  • And the reason was my friendship with Troy Aikman to drop names,
  • 00:21:22.090 --> 00:21:29.120
  • hashtag humbled, because you know, I've known Troy for
  • 00:21:29.130 --> 00:21:34.260
  • a long, long time.
  • 00:21:34.270 --> 00:21:36.050
  • He's attended church for a long, long time.
  • 00:21:36.060 --> 00:21:38.000
  • And he's been to my house, and we've shared meals and blah,
  • 00:21:38.010 --> 00:21:40.250
  • blah, blah, blah, blah.
  • 00:21:40.260 --> 00:21:42.000
  • Well, once that happened, I didn't just know about the
  • 00:21:42.010 --> 00:21:46.010
  • quarterback of the Cowboys.
  • 00:21:46.020 --> 00:21:48.100
  • Now all of a sudden, I know personally, the quarterback of
  • 00:21:48.110 --> 00:21:54.090
  • the Dallas Cowboys, and everything changed!
  • 00:21:54.100 --> 00:21:57.100
  • People come to church. "Oh, man.
  • 00:21:59.170 --> 00:22:02.060
  • I'm cool with Jesus.
  • 00:22:02.070 --> 00:22:04.240
  • I know about the Lord."
  • 00:22:04.250 --> 00:22:07.080
  • But do you know him?
  • 00:22:07.090 --> 00:22:10.270
  • Do you know him intimately?
  • 00:22:10.280 --> 00:22:15.120
  • Because if you know him, it's a game changer.
  • 00:22:15.130 --> 00:22:19.270
  • If you know him, you are an enthusiastic follower of the
  • 00:22:19.280 --> 00:22:25.070
  • Lord.
  • 00:22:25.080 --> 00:22:26.110
  • If you know him, you talk to him, you listen to him.
  • 00:22:26.120 --> 00:22:32.000
  • Think about it, if you were a true fan of the Cowboys, would
  • 00:22:32.010 --> 00:22:35.060
  • you say, "You know, I just, I don't know, I just watch the
  • 00:22:35.070 --> 00:22:38.130
  • Cowboys play once a month.
  • 00:22:38.140 --> 00:22:40.200
  • I don't care about the rest of their games.
  • 00:22:40.210 --> 00:22:42.280
  • I mean, I just--maybe once a month if I can."
  • 00:22:42.290 --> 00:22:46.080
  • It'll shock you to see how many professing or pseudo fans across
  • 00:22:46.090 --> 00:22:54.000
  • our nation only attend church once a month, once a month.
  • 00:22:55.140 --> 00:23:03.210
  • It's stunning when you think about it because if you love the
  • 00:23:03.220 --> 00:23:09.100
  • quarterback, Jesus, you're gonna love his team and you're gonna
  • 00:23:09.110 --> 00:23:15.090
  • love his house. It's that simple.
  • 00:23:15.100 --> 00:23:19.060
  • If you don't, then I would put a big question mark, are you
  • 00:23:19.070 --> 00:23:25.240
  • really a fan or maybe a boo, fair weather fan?
  • 00:23:25.250 --> 00:23:30.250
  • I don't know, so real fans are emotional.
  • 00:23:33.160 --> 00:23:34.250
  • Real fans are faithful.
  • 00:23:34.260 --> 00:23:38.060
  • The third facet of a fan, real fans are informational.
  • 00:23:38.070 --> 00:23:44.010
  • Is that the truth?
  • 00:23:44.020 --> 00:23:45.100
  • They're informational.
  • 00:23:45.110 --> 00:23:47.090
  • Philippians 1:9, "I pray," the Apostle Paul writes, "that your
  • 00:23:47.100 --> 00:23:52.000
  • love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on
  • 00:23:52.010 --> 00:23:55.070
  • growing in knowledge and understanding."
  • 00:23:55.080 --> 00:23:59.030
  • Very simple.
  • 00:23:59.040 --> 00:24:01.110
  • I've been married to Lisa for 33 years.
  • 00:24:01.120 --> 00:24:03.290
  • I've known her for 39 years.
  • 00:24:04.000 --> 00:24:07.020
  • The more time I spend with her, my love and our love grows, the
  • 00:24:07.030 --> 00:24:13.080
  • more knowledge I have of her, the more understanding I have of
  • 00:24:13.090 --> 00:24:18.110
  • her, the more you have togetherness and oneness.
  • 00:24:18.120 --> 00:24:23.190
  • Same is true with the Lord.
  • 00:24:23.200 --> 00:24:27.170
  • The same is true with him.
  • 00:24:27.180 --> 00:24:31.210
  • I'm amazed at how often so many of us know all the stats and the
  • 00:24:31.220 --> 00:24:35.090
  • figures of all of the sports.
  • 00:24:35.100 --> 00:24:38.210
  • That's cool.
  • 00:24:38.220 --> 00:24:40.100
  • It's great to have a hobby.
  • 00:24:40.110 --> 00:24:43.030
  • But so often, I'll ask them one really, that's great, all the
  • 00:24:43.040 --> 00:24:46.280
  • stats.
  • 00:24:46.290 --> 00:24:47.230
  • Who are the minor prophets?
  • 00:24:47.240 --> 00:24:49.260
  • Duh.
  • 00:24:49.270 --> 00:24:53.030
  • How many books are there in the Old Testament?
  • 00:24:53.040 --> 00:24:58.070
  • Clueless.
  • 00:24:58.080 --> 00:25:01.240
  • Notice the fourth facet of the fan.
  • 00:25:01.250 --> 00:25:04.190
  • Are you a real fan?
  • 00:25:04.200 --> 00:25:05.250
  • Really, it's a question only you can answer for yourself.
  • 00:25:05.260 --> 00:25:08.020
  • Real fans are promotional, they're promotional.
  • 00:25:08.030 --> 00:25:12.260
  • The Bible says in Matthew chapter 10, verse 32, "Therefore
  • 00:25:12.270 --> 00:25:16.090
  • whoever confesses me promotes me," Jesus said, "Before men,
  • 00:25:16.100 --> 00:25:20.080
  • then I will also promote them before my Father who is in
  • 00:25:20.090 --> 00:25:23.070
  • heaven."
  • 00:25:23.080 --> 00:25:24.220
  • How cool is that?
  • 00:25:24.230 --> 00:25:25.290
  • It's about promotion.
  • 00:25:26.000 --> 00:25:29.030
  • When I see these billboards around, man, thank the Lord that
  • 00:25:29.040 --> 00:25:32.260
  • we can promote.
  • 00:25:32.270 --> 00:25:34.030
  • We have the best message in the universe.
  • 00:25:34.040 --> 00:25:37.130
  • When I listen to the ticket and I hear a commercial, boom, we
  • 00:25:37.140 --> 00:25:40.260
  • can promote.
  • 00:25:40.270 --> 00:25:42.010
  • When we text people every weekend and call you, we can
  • 00:25:42.020 --> 00:25:46.010
  • promote.
  • 00:25:46.020 --> 00:25:47.130
  • So, we have the best thing in the world to promote,
  • 00:25:47.140 --> 00:25:51.280
  • it's the person of Jesus.
  • 00:25:51.290 --> 00:25:54.090
  • Ed: Thanks a lot for watching "Ed Young Television."
