  • IN THE WORD OF GOD, IN PARTICULAR HOW JESUS IS THE CURE
  • 00:01:27.120 --> 00:01:31.170
  • FOR THE DEFICIENCY OF SIN.
  • 00:01:31.200 --> 00:01:34.100

  • YOU KNOW I'VE BEEN HERE NOW ALMOST TWO YEARS

  • AND MY FAMILY AND I HAVE BEEN SO BLESSED

  • BY THIS CHURCH, THIS LOCAL COMMUNITY.

  • 00:03:01.180 --> 00:03:05.220
  • IN FRONT OF PEOPLE OFTEN,
  • 00:03:05.250 --> 00:03:07.220
  • MANY PEOPLE ONLY SEE THE PUBLIC PERSONA.
  • 00:03:07.250 --> 00:03:10.230
  • I ENDEAVOR THIS AFTERNOON NOW TO SHARE A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:03:10.260 --> 00:03:15.260
  • ABOUT MY HEART AND ABOUT KIND OF WHERE I CAME FROM
  • 00:03:15.290 --> 00:03:20.070
  • IN THE CONTEXT OF THE WORD THAT THE LORD HAS GIVEN ME.
  • 00:03:20.100 --> 00:03:25.080
  • I WAS GREATLY MOVED BY WHAT DR. PAUL SHARED ABOUT
  • 00:03:25.110 --> 00:03:29.090
  • THE PEOPLE THAT HE MINISTERED TO
  • 00:03:29.120 --> 00:03:32.120
  • AND ADMINISTERED HOPE THROUGH LETTERS IN ZAMBIA.
  • 00:03:32.150 --> 00:03:37.080
  • AND THE LAST STORY OF THE LITTLE GIRL STRUCK ME
  • 00:03:37.110 --> 00:03:41.170
  • THAT HERE WAS A LITTLE GIRL WHO FELL INTO A FIRE.
  • 00:03:41.200 --> 00:03:46.010
  • REALLY IN THAT MOMENT, HER HOPE HAD BEEN GREATLY DIMINISHED,
  • 00:03:46.040 --> 00:03:50.050
  • HER CHANCES AT A REGULAR LIFE HAD BEEN GREATLY ALTERED,
  • 00:03:50.080 --> 00:03:53.290
  • THE POSSIBILITIES HAD BEEN LIMITED BECAUSE OF CIRCUMSTANCE.
  • 00:03:54.020 --> 00:03:58.120
  • BUT BECAUSE OF THE COMMITMENT AND THE LOVE
  • 00:03:58.150 --> 00:04:02.100
  • OF SOMEONE SHE HAD NEVER MET,
  • 00:04:02.130 --> 00:04:04.140
  • HER LIFE WAS PUT BACK ON TRACK.
  • 00:04:04.170 --> 00:04:08.030
  • HOW AWESOME IT IS THAT A LITTLE GIRL'S LIFE WAS ALTERED
  • 00:04:08.060 --> 00:04:11.260
  • BY THE TOUCH OF A STRANGER.
  • 00:04:11.290 --> 00:04:15.270
  • ISN'T IT AMAZING SOME OF YOU HAVE PROBABLY HEARD STORIES
  • 00:04:16.000 --> 00:04:19.090
  • OR READ ONLINE OF INEXPLICABLE STORIES OF PEOPLE
  • 00:04:19.120 --> 00:04:22.180
  • IN TERRIBLE SITUATIONS AND A STRANGER COMES OUT OF NOWHERE
  • 00:04:22.210 --> 00:04:26.150
  • TO SAVE THE DAY OR PULL SOMEBODY OUT OF A BURNING BUILDING
  • 00:04:26.180 --> 00:04:30.100
  • OR OUT OF A CAR JUST IN TIME.
  • 00:04:30.130 --> 00:04:32.270
  • WHAT A BEAUTIFUL THING TO THINK
  • 00:04:33.000 --> 00:04:34.120
  • THAT SOMEBODY THAT YOU DON'T KNOW
  • 00:04:34.150 --> 00:04:36.270
  • WOULD GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO HELP YOU.
  • 00:04:37.000 --> 00:04:39.250
  • AND I'M THINKING ABOUT THOSE PEOPLE IN AFRICA
  • 00:04:39.280 --> 00:04:43.120
  • WHO DIDN'T HAVE THE HOPE UNTIL HOPE SHOWED UP
  • 00:04:43.150 --> 00:04:47.080
  • IN THE FORM OF COMMITTED STRANGERS.
  • 00:04:47.110 --> 00:04:50.020
  • AND THIS MORNING I WANNA TALK TO YOU ABOUT A PERSONAL STORY.
  • 00:04:50.050 --> 00:04:54.040
  • I WANNA TALK TO YOU ABOUT THE STRANGER WHO SAVED ME.
  • 00:04:54.070 --> 00:04:59.050
  • THE STRANGER WHO SAVED ME.
  • 00:04:59.080 --> 00:05:01.120
  • [CONGREGATION APPLAUDING]
  • 00:05:01.150 --> 00:05:07.070
  • I WAS RAISED TO LEARN AT A VERY EARLY AGE
  • 00:05:07.100 --> 00:05:11.250
  • THAT SOMEONE DIED FOR ME
  • 00:05:11.280 --> 00:05:16.040
  • SO THAT I COULD LIVE.
  • 00:05:16.070 --> 00:05:18.270
  • FOR THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW,
  • 00:05:19.000 --> 00:05:20.090
  • I WAS BORN WITH A PARTICULAR BLOOD DEFICIENCY.
  • 00:05:20.120 --> 00:05:24.000
  • AND I DON'T TALK ABOUT IT A LOT
  • 00:05:24.030 --> 00:05:25.220
  • BECAUSE WE DON'T TALK ABOUT OUR BROKEN PLACES A LOT.
  • 00:05:25.250 --> 00:05:29.200
  • BUT I WAS BORN WITH A PARTICULAR BLOOD DEFICIENCY,
  • 00:05:29.230 --> 00:05:32.230
  • NOTHING THAT I CHOSE, IT WAS JUST INGRAINED IN THE DNA.
  • 00:05:32.260 --> 00:05:37.220
  • IT WAS PASSED DOWN ON MY FATHER'S SIDE
  • 00:05:37.250 --> 00:05:40.180
  • AND THERE'S JUST NO ESCAPING IT.
  • 00:05:40.210 --> 00:05:43.150
  • AND I'M GRATEFUL FOR TEXAS,
  • 00:05:43.180 --> 00:05:46.010
  • THERE'S A LOT OF MEDICAL FACILITIES HERE,
  • 00:05:46.040 --> 00:05:48.020
  • THERE ARE A LOT OF DOCTORS HERE,
  • 00:05:48.050 --> 00:05:50.010
  • THERE WERE A LOT OF DOCTORS BACK HOME IN CINCINNATI
  • 00:05:50.040 --> 00:05:52.220
  • BUT NONE OF THEM WERE ABLE TO TREAT THE ROOT CAUSE
  • 00:05:52.250 --> 00:05:56.210
  • OF MY DNA DEFICIENCY.
  • 00:05:56.240 --> 00:05:59.190
  • STRANGE, BECAUSE THE MORE I TALK ABOUT
  • 00:05:59.220 --> 00:06:02.200
  • WHAT I'VE BEEN WALKING THROUGH,
  • 00:06:02.230 --> 00:06:04.090
  • I FIND THAT THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:06:04.120 --> 00:06:06.080
  • WHO ARE WALKING THROUGH THE SAME THING.
  • 00:06:06.110 --> 00:06:08.220
  • THIS BLOOD DEFICIENCY THAT I WAS BORN WITH
  • 00:06:08.250 --> 00:06:11.170
  • BEGAN TO MANIFEST AT A VERY YOUNG AGE.
  • 00:06:11.200 --> 00:06:14.280
  • MY MOTHER SAID IT WAS PROBABLY NOT EVEN ONE, TWO YEARS OLD
  • 00:06:15.010 --> 00:06:19.130
  • WHEN SHE NOTICED THAT THERE WAS SOMETHING INGRAINED
  • 00:06:19.160 --> 00:06:22.280
  • IN MY DNA 'CAUSE SHE'D SAY, "DON'T TOUCH THAT,"
  • 00:06:23.010 --> 00:06:26.130
  • AND I TOUCH IT, SHE'D SAY, "HOT,"
  • 00:06:26.160 --> 00:06:29.140
  • AND I'D STILL REACH FOR IT.
  • 00:06:29.170 --> 00:06:31.010
  • SHE SAID, "SIT DOWN," I'D STAND RIGHT UP.
  • 00:06:31.040 --> 00:06:34.230
  • THERE WERE TIMES WHEN THE BLOOD DEFICIENCY
  • 00:06:34.260 --> 00:06:36.240
  • WOULD MANIFEST ITSELF IN THE STRANGEST OF WAYS
  • 00:06:36.270 --> 00:06:40.120
  • AND THEY WOULD TELL ME TO GO LEFT AND I'D GO RIGHT.
  • 00:06:40.150 --> 00:06:44.130
  • I WOULD END UP DOING THINGS THAT I WASN'T SUPPOSED TO DO
  • 00:06:44.160 --> 00:06:47.220
  • AND IT WAS A MANIFESTATION OF SOMETHING THAT HAD HAPPENED
  • 00:06:47.250 --> 00:06:51.000
  • MANY MANY GENERATIONS PRIOR TO MY BIRTH.
  • 00:06:51.030 --> 00:06:54.160
  • IN FACT, AS FAR BACK AS MY ANCESTRY COULD BE
  • 00:06:54.190 --> 00:07:00.190
  • SEEN, THERE WAS THIS DEFICIENCY.
  • 00:07:00.220 --> 00:07:03.240
  • IT STARTED, APPARENTLY MY GREAT GREAT
  • 00:07:03.270 --> 00:07:06.100
  • GREAT GREAT GRANDPARENTS MANY TIMES WERE GARDENERS
  • 00:07:06.130 --> 00:07:10.000
  • AND IN THAT GARDEN THEY WERE OUT THERE ONE DAY
  • 00:07:10.030 --> 00:07:13.000
  • AND SOMEBODY CAME TO TALK TO THEM
  • 00:07:13.030 --> 00:07:15.080
  • BUT THEY WEREN'T THE OWNERS OF THE GARDEN,
  • 00:07:15.110 --> 00:07:18.040
  • AND THE OWNER OF THE GARDEN TOLD THEM,
  • 00:07:18.070 --> 00:07:20.070
  • "LISTEN, YOU CAN HAVE ALL THIS
  • 00:07:20.100 --> 00:07:22.100
  • "BUT OF THIS ONE TREE YOU CAN'T EAT
  • 00:07:22.130 --> 00:07:24.000
  • "FOR THE DAY YOU EAT OF THAT TREE, YOU WILL SURELY DIE."
  • 00:07:24.030 --> 00:07:28.030
  • AND THEN SOME STRANGE CREATURE CAME IN,
  • 00:07:28.060 --> 00:07:31.090
  • WHISPERED TO MY GREAT GREAT GRANDMOTHER MANY TIMES REMOVE,
  • 00:07:31.120 --> 00:07:34.250
  • SAID, "GIRL, YOU NEED TO TRY THAT FRUIT.
  • 00:07:34.280 --> 00:07:36.190
  • "THAT FRUIT IS OFF THE HOOK, THAT FRUIT IS OF THE CHAIN.
  • 00:07:36.220 --> 00:07:39.090
  • "YOU EAT THAT FRUIT, YOU GON' BE TURNED UP.
  • 00:07:39.120 --> 00:07:41.110
  • "YOU NEED THIS FRUIT IN YOU LIFE."
  • 00:07:41.140 --> 00:07:43.240
  • SHE WAS LIKE, "FOR REAL?
  • 00:07:43.270 --> 00:07:44.250
  • "LET ME TRY IT, IT DOES LOOK GOOD."
  • 00:07:44.280 --> 00:07:47.130
  • [CONGREGATION LAUGHING]
  • 00:07:47.160 --> 00:07:51.200
  • BUT IT WASN'T JUST THE FRUIT.
  • 00:07:51.230 --> 00:07:53.260
  • THE LOOKING AT THE FRUIT WASN'T THE SIN,
  • 00:07:53.290 --> 00:07:56.010
  • NOT EVEN THE GRABBING OF THE FRUIT
  • 00:07:56.040 --> 00:07:57.260
  • BUT THE DIGESTING OF THE FRUIT
  • 00:07:57.290 --> 00:07:59.250
  • MEANT NOT ONLY DID YOU DISOBEY
  • 00:07:59.280 --> 00:08:01.270
  • BUT YOU DISOBEYED LISTENING TO AN INFERIOR VOICE.
  • 00:08:02.000 --> 00:08:06.180
  • LISTENING TO THE VOICE OF ONE WHO DIDN'T CREATE THEM
  • 00:08:06.210 --> 00:08:10.070
  • AND NOW THEY WERE CUT OFF FROM THE VERY ONE
  • 00:08:10.100 --> 00:08:12.260
  • WHO DESIGNED THEM FOR FELLOWSHIP.
  • 00:08:12.290 --> 00:08:16.070
  • AND INSIDE OF THAT ONE ACT,
  • 00:08:16.100 --> 00:08:19.090
  • MY BLOOD DEFICIENCY CAME TO BE.
  • 00:08:19.120 --> 00:08:22.180
  • FOR THE DEFICIENCY IS BETTER KNOWN AS SIN.
  • 00:08:22.210 --> 00:08:26.290
  • IT'S A BLOOD DEFECT.
  • 00:08:27.020 --> 00:08:28.260
  • NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO, NO MATTER HOW GOOD YOU TRY TO BE,
  • 00:08:28.290 --> 00:08:32.000
  • IT ALWAYS SHOWS UP.
  • 00:08:32.030 --> 00:08:34.060
  • PAUL SAID, "OH WRETCHED MAN THAT I AM,
  • 00:08:34.090 --> 00:08:38.000
  • "WHO WILL DELIVER ME FROM THIS BODY OF DEATH?
  • 00:08:38.030 --> 00:08:43.260
  • "I DO WHAT I DON'T WANNA DO AND WHAT I'M SUPPOSED TO DO
  • 00:08:43.290 --> 00:08:47.050
  • "THAT I DON'T DO."
  • 00:08:47.080 --> 00:08:48.210
  • AND THERE'S THIS BATTLE BETWEEN FLESH AND SPIRIT,
  • 00:08:48.240 --> 00:08:51.290
  • GOOD AND BAD, RIGHT AND WRONG
  • 00:08:52.020 --> 00:08:54.250
  • AND IT MANIFESTS AT A YOUNG AGE AND IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME,
  • 00:08:54.280 --> 00:09:00.110
  • HOW MANY OF US KNOW YOU DON'T HAVE
  • 00:09:00.140 --> 00:09:02.140
  • TO TEACH A CHILD TO BE BAD?
