  • EVERY WEEK, I LIKE TO GET SAVED AGAIN.
  • 00:00:34.260 --> 00:00:38.080
  • THIS WEEK TOO.
  • 00:00:38.110 --> 00:00:39.280
  • MESSED UP LAST NIGHT, I WAS AT THE CLUB.
  • 00:00:40.010 --> 00:00:44.020
  • I'M JUST SAYING.
  • 00:00:44.050 --> 00:00:46.080
  • AND
  • 00:00:46.110 --> 00:00:48.060
  • YOU THINK THAT SIN
  • 00:00:48.090 --> 00:00:52.160
  • AND A TEMPORARY MOMENT IN YOUR DEVELOPMENT
  • 00:00:52.190 --> 00:00:55.220
  • IS A PERMANENT STATE, AND IT'S NOT.
  • 00:00:55.250 --> 00:00:59.020
  • SALVATION IS A CONFESSION.
  • 00:00:59.050 --> 00:01:02.020
  • SANCTIFICATION IS A PROCESS.
  • 00:01:02.050 --> 00:01:06.100
  • FRESH WORD, FRESH PERSPECTIVE,
  • 00:01:06.130 --> 00:01:08.200
  • AND A WHOLE LOT OF HALLELUJAH.
  • 00:01:08.230 --> 00:01:11.120
  • JOHN GRAY'S WORLD.
  • 00:01:11.150 --> 00:01:12.260
  • BEW!
  • 00:01:12.290 --> 00:01:14.030
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:01:14.060 --> 00:01:19.140
  • HEY, HEY, HEY.
  • 00:01:19.170 --> 00:01:20.220
  • IT'S JOHN GRAY, YOUR BROTHER FROM ANOTHER MOTHER.
  • 00:01:20.250 --> 00:01:24.040
  • NOW I WANNA TELL YOU UPFRONT
  • 00:01:24.070 --> 00:01:25.230
  • THAT I DON'T BELIEVE IT'S A COINCIDENCE THAT YOU TUNED IN.
  • 00:01:25.260 --> 00:01:29.220
  • I BELIEVE YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO BE WATCHING RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:01:29.250 --> 00:01:32.240
  • TODAY, WE'RE GOING TO DEAL WITH THE KEY ISSUE,
  • 00:01:32.270 --> 00:01:35.110
  • ONE OF THE ASPECT'S OF LIFE THAT CAUSES PEOPLE
  • 00:01:35.140 --> 00:01:37.240
  • SO MUCH FRUSTRATION.
  • 00:01:37.270 --> 00:01:39.100
  • THAT IS FEELING STUCK,
  • 00:01:39.130 --> 00:01:42.020
  • IS THERE ANYTHING WORSE THAN
  • 00:01:42.050 --> 00:01:44.040
  • NOT BEING ABLE TO MOVE
  • 00:01:44.070 --> 00:01:45.260
  • EVEN THOUGH YOU WANT TO.
  • 00:01:45.290 --> 00:01:47.180
  • MAYBE YOU CAN RELATE.
  • 00:01:47.210 --> 00:01:49.040
  • YOU HAVE A DREAM IN YOUR HEART,
  • 00:01:49.070 --> 00:01:50.250
  • YOU KNOW WHAT GOD HAS PROMISED YOU,
  • 00:01:50.280 --> 00:01:52.110
  • YET YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE STAGNANT,
  • 00:01:52.140 --> 00:01:54.270
  • STUCK IN THE SAME PLACE FOR YEARS.
  • 00:01:55.000 --> 00:01:57.080
  • WELL, TODAY, I WANT YOU TO KNOW IT'S GO TIME.
  • 00:01:57.110 --> 00:02:01.110
  • YEAH, I SAID IT.
  • 00:02:01.140 --> 00:02:03.090
  • IT'S GO TIME.
  • 00:02:03.120 --> 00:02:04.190
  • YOU NEED TO GET YOUR EXPECTATIONS UP.
  • 00:02:04.220 --> 00:02:06.250
  • GOD NEVER INTENDED FOR YOU TO REMAIN IN THE WILDERNESS.
  • 00:02:06.280 --> 00:02:09.290
  • HE'S BEEN PREPARING YOU FOR THIS TIME, THIS MOMENT.
  • 00:02:10.020 --> 00:02:14.060
  • WHAT HE HAS FOR YOU IS FOR YOU AND ONLY YOU.
  • 00:02:14.090 --> 00:02:17.160
  • IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO GO FORWARD
  • 00:02:17.190 --> 00:02:19.030
  • AND EXPERIENCE THE PROMISE NOW.
  • 00:02:19.060 --> 00:02:21.120
  • SO SIT BACK, DON'T RELAX,
  • 00:02:21.150 --> 00:02:23.040
  • AND GET THIS WORD IN YOUR SPIRIT.
  • 00:02:23.070 --> 00:02:24.190
  • CALL EVERYBODY YOU KNOW, TEXT THEM RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:02:24.220 --> 00:02:27.020
  • PRESS THE RED DVR BUTTON, BECAUSE YOU NEED TO,
  • 00:02:27.050 --> 00:02:29.260
  • YOU NEED TO REWIND THIS ONE.
  • 00:02:29.290 --> 00:02:31.180
  • THIS ONE IS ONE YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO WATCH OVER,
  • 00:02:31.210 --> 00:02:33.290
  • OVER, OVER, AND OVER AGAIN.
  • 00:02:34.020 --> 00:02:36.130
  • COME ON, LET'S GO AFTER JESUS.
  • 00:02:36.160 --> 00:02:38.180
  • I WANNA JUMP RIGHT INTO THE WORD TONIGHT,
  • 00:02:38.210 --> 00:02:42.150
  • AND I WANT YOU TO GET READY.
  • 00:02:42.180 --> 00:02:45.030
  • I WANNA ENCOURAGE FAMILIES TONIGHT.
  • 00:02:45.060 --> 00:02:47.230
  • I WANNA SPEAK LIFE TO SOME DREAMERS AND I ALSO WANNA,
  • 00:02:47.260 --> 00:02:53.210
  • I BELIEVE, DECLARE THE WORD OF THE LORD
  • 00:02:53.240 --> 00:02:56.180
  • FOR THE DIRECTION OF SOME PEOPLE THAT ARE HERE
  • 00:02:56.210 --> 00:03:00.180
  • AND ALSO THOSE WHO ARE WATCHING ONLINE.
  • 00:03:00.210 --> 00:03:02.270
  • I WANNA SEE THE LORD TONIGHT.
  • 00:03:03.000 --> 00:03:04.160
  • ANYBODY ELSE WITH ME WANNA TRULY BE REFRESHED
  • 00:03:04.190 --> 00:03:10.010
  • IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD, IN THE WORD OF THE LORD?
  • 00:03:10.040 --> 00:03:13.060
  • YOU KNOW, YESTERDAY, I TOOK MY SON SWIMMING.
  • 00:03:13.090 --> 00:03:19.170
  • ACTUALLY, I TOOK HIM TO GO FALL IN THE WATER
  • 00:03:19.200 --> 00:03:21.220
  • AND DRINK HALF THE SWIMMING POOL IS WHAT HE DID.
  • 00:03:21.250 --> 00:03:26.100
  • BUT IT MIGHT NOT SEEM LIKE A BIG DEAL BECAUSE IT'S HOT,
  • 00:03:26.130 --> 00:03:30.020
  • AND YOU SHOULD GO SWIMMING WHEN IT'S HOT,
  • 00:03:30.050 --> 00:03:32.160
  • BUT IT WAS A MONUMENTAL MOMENT FOR ME AS A MAN
  • 00:03:32.190 --> 00:03:38.090
  • BECAUSE I WAS ABLE TO TAKE MY SON SWIMMING.
  • 00:03:38.120 --> 00:03:43.010
  • AND MY FATHER NEVER TOOK ME SWIMMING.
  • 00:03:43.040 --> 00:03:47.050
  • MY FATHER NEVER TOOK ME TO A LOT OF PLACES.
  • 00:03:47.080 --> 00:03:51.110
  • AND SO, YESTERDAY WAS SIGNIFICANT
  • 00:03:51.140 --> 00:03:53.290
  • IN THAT I WAS ABLE TO TAKE MY SON INTO THE WATER.
  • 00:03:54.020 --> 00:03:58.060
  • HE HAD ON HIS LIFE JACKET AND HE WAS ON HIS BACK.
  • 00:03:58.090 --> 00:04:03.050
  • AND HE WAS ENJOYING HIMSELF,
  • 00:04:03.080 --> 00:04:06.080
  • BUT HE KEPT HIS EYES ON ME,
  • 00:04:06.110 --> 00:04:09.050
  • BECAUSE HE WAS IN UNFAMILIAR TERRITORY.
  • 00:04:09.080 --> 00:04:12.060
  • AND EVEN THOUGH HE WAS HAVING A GOOD TIME
  • 00:04:12.090 --> 00:04:14.140
  • AND HE SAW OTHER LITTLE KIDS,
  • 00:04:14.170 --> 00:04:16.250
  • THEY DIDN'T BRING AS MUCH COMFORT TO HIM
  • 00:04:16.280 --> 00:04:19.120
  • AS HIM LOOKING UP AND SEEING HIS DADDY'S FACE.
  • 00:04:19.150 --> 00:04:22.250
  • AND IT TOUCHED MY HEART THAT MY SON SAID,
  • 00:04:22.280 --> 00:04:25.270
  • "I KNOW THIS IS SOMETHING NEW.
  • 00:04:26.000 --> 00:04:27.140
  • "I'M NOT SURE WHERE I'M AT,
  • 00:04:27.170 --> 00:04:29.030
  • "BUT AS LONG AS I CAN SEE YOU, I KNOW I'M ALL RIGHT."
  • 00:04:29.060 --> 00:04:33.050
  • (CONGREGATION APPLAUDING)
  • 00:04:33.080 --> 00:04:37.030
  • NOW TO A LOT OF PEOPLE, THAT MAY NOT BE A BIG DEAL.
  • 00:04:37.060 --> 00:04:40.000
  • MY WIFE WILL TELL YOU, I CRIED,
  • 00:04:40.030 --> 00:04:41.140
  • AND I WAS JUST ALL EMO--
  • 00:04:41.170 --> 00:04:42.250
  • (CRIES)
  • 00:04:42.280 --> 00:04:44.270
  • THANK YOU, JESUS, HE'S SWIMMING.
  • 00:04:45.000 --> 00:04:49.140
  • AND IT WASN'T BECAUSE HE WAS SWIMMING.
  • 00:04:49.170 --> 00:04:51.210
  • IT WAS BECAUSE HE FELT SAFE
  • 00:04:51.240 --> 00:04:54.210
  • IN WHAT COULD'VE BEEN A VERY UNSAFE ENVIRONMENT.
  • 00:04:54.240 --> 00:04:57.280
  • AND IT STARTED ME THINKING ABOUT WHERE WE ARE AS A NATION,
  • 00:04:58.010 --> 00:05:01.290
  • WHERE WE ARE IN THE WORLD
  • 00:05:02.020 --> 00:05:03.240
  • WHERE THE VERY CONCEPT OF FAMILY AND OF LIFE
  • 00:05:03.270 --> 00:05:08.200
  • IS RAPIDLY CHANGING.
  • 00:05:08.230 --> 00:05:10.170
  • PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED TO DEFINE WHATEVER THEY WISH,
  • 00:05:10.200 --> 00:05:14.080
  • BUT I STILL BELIEVE THAT THE WORLD OF THE LORD HOLDS TRUE,
  • 00:05:14.110 --> 00:05:17.290
  • AND I BELIEVE THAT GOD GAVE US THE BLUEPRINT
  • 00:05:18.020 --> 00:05:21.280
  • FOR HOW FAMILIES SHOULD INTERACT.
  • 00:05:22.010 --> 00:05:25.010
  • HE GAVE US THE BLUEPRINT ON HOW WE SHOULD FUNCTION,
  • 00:05:25.040 --> 00:05:28.080
  • AND I BELIEVE THAT IS THE MAXIMUM CAPACITY
  • 00:05:28.110 --> 00:05:31.020
  • THAT THE EARTH CAN RECEIVE.
  • 00:05:31.050 --> 00:05:32.180
  • IF WE DO THINGS THE WAY THE WORD OF GOD OUTLINES,
  • 00:05:32.210 --> 00:05:36.090
  • THEN WE WILL HAVE MAXIMUM BLESSING BENEFIT
  • 00:05:36.120 --> 00:05:39.150
  • AND WE WILL LEAVE A LASTING LEGACY IN THE EARTH.
  • 00:05:39.180 --> 00:05:44.180
  • BECAUSE OF THIS FATHER AND SON MOMENT,
  • 00:05:44.210 --> 00:05:47.290
  • I FOUND MYSELF THINKING ABOUT MY FUTURE
  • 00:05:48.020 --> 00:05:51.120
  • AND THINKING ABOUT WHERE WE ARE AS THE BODY OF CHRIST,
  • 00:05:51.150 --> 00:05:55.080
  • WHERE WE ARE IN THE CHURCH,
  • 00:05:55.110 --> 00:05:57.260
  • THINKING ABOUT HOW WE GOT TO THIS PLACE.
  • 00:05:57.290 --> 00:06:01.220
  • I CAN'T BEGIN TO IMAGINE THE MIRACLE TESTIMONIES
  • 00:06:01.250 --> 00:06:05.170
  • THAT ARE REPRESENTED IN THESE SEATS.
  • 00:06:05.200 --> 00:06:07.280
  • FOR THOSE WHO ARE WATCHING ONLINE,
  • 00:06:08.010 --> 00:06:10.100
  • I DON'T PRETEND TO KNOW HOW YOU CAME
  • 00:06:10.130 --> 00:06:13.100
  • TO BE SITTING IN FRONT OF THAT COMPUTER RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:06:13.130 --> 00:06:15.270
  • BUT I KNOW THAT THERE'S A MIRACLE BEHIND IT.
  • 00:06:16.000 --> 00:06:18.130
  • AND I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT WHATEVER YOUR STORY IS,
  • 00:06:18.160 --> 00:06:21.150
  • IT IS GOING TO BE DELIVERANCE FOR SOMEONE ELSE.
  • 00:06:21.180 --> 00:06:24.210
  • SOMEONE NEEDS TO HEAR YOUR STORY.
  • 00:06:24.240 --> 00:06:27.100
  • THEY NEED TO BE ENCOURAGED BY YOUR WALK.
  • 00:06:27.130 --> 00:06:30.180
  • AND YOU MAY NOT FIND VALUE IN YOUR WALK,
  • 00:06:30.210 --> 00:06:33.050
  • BUT I PROMISE YOU THERE IS SOMEBODY THAT CAN FIND LIFE
  • 00:06:33.080 --> 00:06:36.220
  • IN WHAT YOU'RE IN RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:06:36.250 --> 00:06:39.000
  • YOU MIGHT NOT EVEN LIKE WHERE YOU ARE,
  • 00:06:39.030 --> 00:06:40.190
  • BUT I GUARANTEE YOU THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THIS EARTH
  • 00:06:40.220 --> 00:06:43.240
  • RIGHT NOW THAT WOULD TRADE PLACES WITH YOU IN A HEARTBEAT.
  • 00:06:43.270 --> 00:06:48.280
  • AND YOU SHOULD THANK THE LORD THAT YOU ARE WHERE YOU ARE.
  • 00:06:49.010 --> 00:06:57.100
  • I BELIEVE THAT CHRIST IN US IS THE HOPE OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:06:57.130 --> 00:07:02.050
  • HE IS THE HOPE OF GLORY.
  • 00:07:02.080 --> 00:07:04.090
  • HE IS THE HOPE OF THE NATIONS,
  • 00:07:04.120 --> 00:07:07.000
  • BUT WE ARE IN A VERY, VERY DANGEROUS TIME,
  • 00:07:07.030 --> 00:07:11.120
  • AND WE NEED TO IDENTIFY WITH OUR ORIGINAL PURPOSE.
  • 00:07:11.150 --> 00:07:16.180
  • MANY OF US GO THROUGH LIFE FIGURING OUT
  • 00:07:16.210 --> 00:07:19.230
  • WHAT TO DO, HOW TO BE.
  • 00:07:19.260 --> 00:07:21.010
  • NOW THE AVERAGE PERSON HAS FOUR CAREERS IN A LIFETIME.
  • 00:07:21.040 --> 00:07:25.260
  • THAT'S AFTER COLLEGE
  • 00:07:25.290 --> 00:07:27.200
  • I GOT MY DEGREE!
  • 00:07:27.230 --> 00:07:29.060
  • YOU WORKIN' SIX MONTHS: I HATE THIS.
  • 00:07:29.090 --> 00:07:33.280
  • AND PEOPLE ARE STRUGGLING
  • 00:07:34.010 --> 00:07:38.000
  • TO GET IDENTITY,
  • 00:07:38.030 --> 00:07:39.150
  • TO GET CLARITY, TO GET PURPOSE.
  • 00:07:39.180 --> 00:07:42.040
  • WHAT AM I DOING?
  • 00:07:42.070 --> 00:07:43.120
  • WHY AM I HEAR?
  • 00:07:43.150 --> 00:07:44.250
  • WHAT'S MY CALLING?
  • 00:07:44.280 --> 00:07:46.290
  • WHERE AM I GOING?
  • 00:07:47.020 --> 00:07:48.080
  • WHICH DIRECTION DO I GO IN?
  • 00:07:48.110 --> 00:07:51.270
  • SO MANY PEOPLE LIVED MOST OF THEIR LIVES
  • 00:07:52.000 --> 00:07:54.110
  • SEARCHING FOR THE ANSWERS TO THOSE QUESTIONS.
  • 00:07:54.140 --> 00:07:57.200
  • MANY OF US IN HERE RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:07:57.230 --> 00:07:59.160
  • WE DO HAVE AN OCCUPATION.
  • 00:07:59.190 --> 00:08:02.120
  • BUT DO WE LOVE IT?
  • 00:08:02.150 --> 00:08:04.030
  • IS IT THE CONSUMING PASSION OF OUR HEART?
  • 00:08:04.060 --> 00:08:06.200
  • OR DID WE LAY OUR DREAMS DOWN
  • 00:08:06.230 --> 00:08:08.230
  • BECAUSE THEY SEEMED INCONVENIENT OR UNATTAINABLE?
  • 00:08:08.260 --> 00:08:12.150
  • WHERE IS IS THAT YOU ARE CALLED TO HAVE IMPACT
  • 00:08:12.180 --> 00:08:15.230
  • THAT YOU MAY HAVE LAID DOWN OUT OF FEAR,
  • 00:08:15.260 --> 00:08:18.250
  • OR GUILT, OR SHAME, OR INSECURITY?
  • 00:08:18.280 --> 00:08:21.040
  • WHERE ARE YOU IN YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW?
  • 00:08:21.070 --> 00:08:24.220
  • ARE YOU EXACTLY WHERE YOU WANNA BE?
  • 00:08:24.250 --> 00:08:27.240
  • ARE YOU AT THE PLACE OF PEACE?
  • 00:08:27.270 --> 00:08:30.040
  • DO YOU WAKE UP EVERY MORNING EXCITED ABOUT THE DAY?
  • 00:08:30.070 --> 00:08:33.120
  • I KNOW THAT THERE ARE GONNA BE CHALLENGES,
  • 00:08:33.150 --> 00:08:35.000
  • BUT, PASTOR, CHALLENGES, YOU'RE LIKE, HEY,
  • 00:08:35.030 --> 00:08:37.020
  • IF I GOTTA HAVE CHALLENGES,
  • 00:08:37.050 --> 00:08:38.100
  • I'LL HAVE CHALLENGES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LIFE I'M LIVING
  • 00:08:38.130 --> 00:08:40.160
  • BECAUSE I KNOW I'M EXACTLY WHERE I NEED TO BE.
  • 00:08:40.190 --> 00:08:42.290
  • OR, ARE THERE PLACES WHERE YOU SAY,
  • 00:08:43.020 --> 00:08:44.240
  • YOU KNOW WHAT, LORD,
  • 00:08:44.270 --> 00:08:45.290
  • I'M REALLY NOT SURE WHICH WAY I SHOULD GO.
