  • and it's important that you have an ear to hear.
  • 00:03:37.010 --> 00:03:39.250
  • Your hearing will determine your living.
  • 00:03:39.250 --> 00:03:43.170
  • I live the way I live because I hear
  • 00:03:43.170 --> 00:03:47.030
  • the way I hear.
  • 00:03:47.030 --> 00:03:48.110
  • And so I'm discovering and observing
  • 00:03:49.130 --> 00:03:52.040
  • throughout the body of Christ.
  • 00:03:52.040 --> 00:03:53.220
  • People don't hear right and that's why
  • 00:03:53.220 --> 00:03:56.020
  • they can't live right.
  • 00:03:56.020 --> 00:03:58.110
  • - So I'm answering that question by
  • 00:03:58.110 --> 00:04:00.250
  • we were and we still are.
  • 00:04:00.250 --> 00:04:02.200
  • We're very sober about the kingdom
  • 00:04:02.200 --> 00:04:05.080
  • and about, specially, about marriage.
  • 00:04:05.080 --> 00:04:08.110
  • I mean, when I pulled in this parking lot,
  • 00:04:09.270 --> 00:04:13.210
  • and I saw all these people stand up just now.
  • 00:04:13.210 --> 00:04:17.260
  • Let me tell you all something.
  • 00:04:17.260 --> 00:04:18.230
  • This is serious.
  • 00:04:18.230 --> 00:04:20.030
  • This marriage stuff and really dying
  • 00:04:21.070 --> 00:04:24.010
  • and really humbling yourself.
  • 00:04:26.160 --> 00:04:28.230
  • I've been here 33 years.
  • 00:04:28.230 --> 00:04:31.160
  • God told me not to go to another team.
  • 00:04:31.160 --> 00:04:34.260
  • I had a chance to go to a team.
  • 00:04:34.260 --> 00:04:36.040
  • I was broke, lost everything.
  • 00:04:36.040 --> 00:04:38.110
  • Mamma's house, "Momma, I'm sorry
  • 00:04:38.110 --> 00:04:39.250
  • "I can't pay your bills."
  • 00:04:39.250 --> 00:04:41.250
  • Can't pay our bills.
  • 00:04:41.250 --> 00:04:43.150
  • Denver Broncos said, "You'll be able
  • 00:04:44.190 --> 00:04:45.250
  • "to pay 'em cuz we're fitting to give
  • 00:04:45.250 --> 00:04:46.260
  • "you a lot of money."
  • 00:04:46.260 --> 00:04:48.210
  • Go down and pray, God said, "No."
  • 00:04:48.210 --> 00:04:51.140
  • I said, "God, I'm doing what you say do."
  • 00:04:53.020 --> 00:04:55.220
  • Like Abraham sacrificed his son.
  • 00:04:55.220 --> 00:04:57.080
  • - [Pastor] Absolutely.
  • 00:04:57.080 --> 00:04:58.140
  • - I get a job, I'll work somewhere.
  • 00:04:58.140 --> 00:04:59.170
  • I'm from the South.
  • 00:04:59.170 --> 00:05:00.250
  • I can cut yards, I can do a lot of stuff.
  • 00:05:00.250 --> 00:05:03.260
  • So I got a call from Joe Gibbs
  • 00:05:05.250 --> 00:05:08.100
  • the night before the draft he said,
  • 00:05:09.150 --> 00:05:10.210
  • "Man, don't anybody want you on this team."
  • 00:05:10.210 --> 00:05:12.200
  • Well I already knew that.
  • 00:05:12.200 --> 00:05:13.240
  • You guys tore my contract up.
  • 00:05:13.240 --> 00:05:16.230
  • He said, "But they're not paying you
  • 00:05:16.230 --> 00:05:18.100
  • "that kind of money."
  • 00:05:18.100 --> 00:05:19.250
  • I didn't tell them God said anything.
  • 00:05:19.250 --> 00:05:22.120
  • I said, "Coach, you put on a piece of paper
  • 00:05:22.120 --> 00:05:25.230
  • "and I just signed it with my eyes turned."
  • 00:05:25.230 --> 00:05:28.090
  • I played 16 more years, 20 years.
  • 00:05:28.090 --> 00:05:31.130
  • Nobody plays 20 years, nobody.
  • 00:05:31.130 --> 00:05:33.280
  • - [Pastor] No one.
  • 00:05:34.240 --> 00:05:36.070
  • - And I've been in this place, appointed by presidents,
  • 00:05:36.070 --> 00:05:38.030
  • streets named after me, the whole thing.
  • 00:05:38.030 --> 00:05:40.050
  • So, this whole thing, my call and who I am
  • 00:05:40.050 --> 00:05:42.200
  • and what I was supposed to be, it was real
  • 00:05:42.200 --> 00:05:45.170
  • and I got it young.
  • 00:05:45.170 --> 00:05:46.240
  • And on top of that, my kids have been
  • 00:05:46.240 --> 00:05:49.100
  • baptized in it every day of their lives.
  • 00:05:49.100 --> 00:05:52.030
  • I told them who we are,
  • 00:05:52.030 --> 00:05:54.160
  • where we came from and where we're going
  • 00:05:54.160 --> 00:05:57.030
  • over and over cuz I'm serious about this stuff.
  • 00:05:57.030 --> 00:06:00.170
  • And so, I'm so excited that people are here
  • 00:06:00.170 --> 00:06:02.290
  • but a lot of people, you don't have a clue.
  • 00:06:02.290 --> 00:06:06.080
  • You just got your girl that you like
  • 00:06:06.080 --> 00:06:08.190
  • and, you know what, that ain't gonna get it.
  • 00:06:08.190 --> 00:06:11.050
  • And so for us, you asked a question about issues.
  • 00:06:11.050 --> 00:06:14.140
  • Issues are coming out our face.
  • 00:06:14.140 --> 00:06:17.010
  • But the reality is this,
  • 00:06:18.050 --> 00:06:20.140
  • our basis, our basis is, we really will die first.
  • 00:06:20.140 --> 00:06:24.190
  • They said it in the weddings.
  • 00:06:26.120 --> 00:06:27.250
  • Till death do you part.
  • 00:06:27.250 --> 00:06:29.230
  • We will die because I'm serious about this.
  • 00:06:30.280 --> 00:06:33.210
  • I feel like I was born and called for this.
  • 00:06:33.210 --> 00:06:36.010
  • Created for this.
  • 00:06:36.010 --> 00:06:37.020
  • - Because I want to go back
  • 00:06:37.020 --> 00:06:38.250
  • to that revelation with you because
  • 00:06:38.250 --> 00:06:41.070
  • how does a man that comes from
  • 00:06:41.070 --> 00:06:44.040
  • that kind of generational destruction?
  • 00:06:44.040 --> 00:06:47.090
  • You hear what I'm saying?
  • 00:06:49.050 --> 00:06:50.210
  • How does a man now, turn.
  • 00:06:50.210 --> 00:06:52.240
  • Everything prior to you, destruction,
  • 00:06:57.060 --> 00:06:59.250
  • everything after you, construction.
  • 00:06:59.250 --> 00:07:02.240
  • How do you, see because there are people here
  • 00:07:04.070 --> 00:07:07.230
  • dealing with some generational issues.
  • 00:07:07.230 --> 00:07:10.130
  • We know Jesus has reversed the curse
  • 00:07:10.130 --> 00:07:12.270
  • but there's still generational choices
  • 00:07:12.270 --> 00:07:16.080
  • that exist that people yield themselves to and fall prey.
  • 00:07:16.080 --> 00:07:20.080
  • How does a man who comes out of this lineage
  • 00:07:20.080 --> 00:07:24.070
  • even demonstrates it, have a child before marriage,
  • 00:07:24.070 --> 00:07:27.170
  • get saved and so serious.
  • 00:07:27.170 --> 00:07:30.020
  • Jesus must have visit you.
  • 00:07:30.020 --> 00:07:32.070
  • - Well I'm gonna blame it on him.
  • 00:07:33.120 --> 00:07:35.160
  • - [Pastor] You have to.
  • 00:07:35.160 --> 00:07:36.140
  • - Because the fear of the Lord
  • 00:07:36.140 --> 00:07:38.230
  • is the hatred of evil.
  • 00:07:38.230 --> 00:07:40.210
  • So I pray that everyday.
  • 00:07:40.210 --> 00:07:42.070
  • Lord I pray the fear of God,
  • 00:07:42.070 --> 00:07:43.260
  • the fear of the Lord is the beginning
  • 00:07:43.260 --> 00:07:45.020
  • of knowledge and wisdom but it's
  • 00:07:45.020 --> 00:07:46.130
  • the hatred of evil.
  • 00:07:46.130 --> 00:07:48.230
  • - [Pastor] When you pray that for yourself
  • 00:07:48.230 --> 00:07:50.010
  • or for your father?
  • 00:07:50.010 --> 00:07:51.040
  • - Both, both.
  • 00:07:51.040 --> 00:07:52.060
  • - But I want to know about this conversion.
  • 00:07:53.110 --> 00:07:55.190
  • Your daddy has walked in destruction.
  • 00:07:55.190 --> 00:07:59.110
  • You see that generational choice and curse.
  • 00:07:59.110 --> 00:08:02.190
  • You come to the knowledge of Jesus how?
  • 00:08:02.190 --> 00:08:05.210
  • Who leads you to the Lord?
  • 00:08:05.210 --> 00:08:07.030
  • Talk about that conversion and how,
  • 00:08:07.030 --> 00:08:09.160
  • did you now, turn a generation of destruction
  • 00:08:09.160 --> 00:08:13.190
  • into a generation of construction.
  • 00:08:13.190 --> 00:08:16.040
  • - It's a whole bunch of revelation, exactly right.
  • 00:08:16.040 --> 00:08:18.100
  • A bunch of prayer, readin' the word.
  • 00:08:18.100 --> 00:08:20.090
  • But practically speaking.
  • 00:08:20.090 --> 00:08:22.160
  • So, first of all, you repent.
  • 00:08:22.160 --> 00:08:24.280
  • And you use words.
  • 00:08:26.170 --> 00:08:28.020
  • You don't agree with that.
  • 00:08:29.290 --> 00:08:31.260
  • I don't agree with beingness.
  • 00:08:31.260 --> 00:08:34.090
  • I don't agree with thinking like this.
  • 00:08:34.090 --> 00:08:37.030
  • I don't agree, talk to Sam the other night,
  • 00:08:37.030 --> 00:08:39.090
  • we were talking about his father.
  • 00:08:39.090 --> 00:08:40.090
  • Say Sam, you got to use words.
  • 00:08:40.090 --> 00:08:42.080
  • - [Pastor] Okay, come on.
  • 00:08:42.080 --> 00:08:43.280
  • - And repent and denounce and say,
  • 00:08:43.280 --> 00:08:45.090
  • "No, I don't agree with the idea."
  • 00:08:45.090 --> 00:08:47.290
  • So you're speakin' that.
  • 00:08:47.290 --> 00:08:49.200
  • So I don't agree with the history of our family.
  • 00:08:49.200 --> 00:08:52.220
  • I don't agree with being that kind of guy.
  • 00:08:52.220 --> 00:08:55.140
  • I disagree with that.
  • 00:08:55.140 --> 00:08:57.140
  • - So if that mind is pornography,
  • 00:08:57.140 --> 00:08:59.260
  • if that mind is adultery.
  • 00:08:59.260 --> 00:09:01.040
  • - [Darrell] I don't agree with pornography.
  • 00:09:01.040 --> 00:09:02.110
  • I hate pornography and I turn away from it.
  • 00:09:02.110 --> 00:09:05.270
  • - Coming out of your mouth.
  • 00:09:06.270 --> 00:09:08.040
  • Making those confessions.
  • 00:09:08.040 --> 00:09:09.110
  • - Absolutely and like, you remember in the day,
  • 00:09:09.110 --> 00:09:12.000
  • they get saved they go, "Oh, (mumbles) Ceaser is Lord.
  • 00:09:12.000 --> 00:09:16.190
  • No, Ceaser ain't Lord.
  • 00:09:16.190 --> 00:09:18.040
  • - [Pastor] Absolutely.
  • 00:09:18.040 --> 00:09:18.290
  • - Jesus is Lord.
  • 00:09:18.290 --> 00:09:19.240
  • - [Pastor] Absolutely.
  • 00:09:19.240 --> 00:09:21.090
  • - So it might kill you but you're gonna speak that.
  • 00:09:21.090 --> 00:09:23.180
  • You either say Ceaser is Lord
  • 00:09:23.180 --> 00:09:25.170
  • or you're gonna say Jesus is Lord.
  • 00:09:25.170 --> 00:09:28.290
  • So you speak, you talk, you use words,
  • 00:09:28.290 --> 00:09:32.110
  • you repent, you denounce.
  • 00:09:32.110 --> 00:09:34.000
  • You don't just, well Pastor man I'm just doing.

  • So no man, I would hate.
  • 00:09:38.250 --> 00:09:40.130
  • I would hate to be my father, his father,
  • 00:09:40.130 --> 00:09:44.210

  • 00:09:44.210 --> 00:09:45.290
  • - [Pastor] So a daily confession of yours

  • I hat the fact of being--
  • 00:09:50.290 --> 00:09:52.200
  • - I'm not gonna be it.
  • 00:09:52.200 --> 00:09:54.030
  • I would denounce it and I don't agree with it.
  • 00:09:54.030 --> 00:09:56.150
  • I told Jared, my boy, 10 years old.
  • 00:09:56.150 --> 00:09:59.120

  • - [Pastor] You gonna die faithfully, with his mother.
  • 00:10:08.200 --> 00:10:11.000
  • - When he was 10 years old.
  • 00:10:11.000 --> 00:10:12.090
  • And I believe, this is just me
  • 00:10:12.090 --> 00:10:14.100
  • and anybody that knew Jared.
  • 00:10:14.100 --> 00:10:15.170
  • - [Pastor] But Darrell, you the NFL football.
  • 00:10:15.170 --> 00:10:17.250
  • You're the fastest man in the NFL.
  • 00:10:17.250 --> 00:10:19.230
  • You got women comin' after you traveling.
  • 00:10:19.230 --> 00:10:22.030
  • She don't even like football.
  • 00:10:22.030 --> 00:10:23.150
  • It's some chicks who learned football.
  • 00:10:23.150 --> 00:10:25.080
  • (laughing)
  • 00:10:25.080 --> 00:10:26.220
  • They learned football to show you they like football.
  • 00:10:26.220 --> 00:10:29.060
  • Your wife don't even like football like that.
  • 00:10:29.060 --> 00:10:32.060
  • You got bunch of millionaire, miserable men
  • 00:10:32.060 --> 00:10:34.260
  • in the next locker next to you.
  • 00:10:34.260 --> 00:10:36.250
  • You're going out, hanging out one night.
  • 00:10:36.250 --> 00:10:39.030
  • She ain't gonna know.
  • 00:10:39.030 --> 00:10:40.010
  • Hello from the other side
  • 00:10:40.010 --> 00:10:42.230
  • (laughing)
  • 00:10:42.230 --> 00:10:45.010
  • - You are crazy.
  • 00:10:47.290 --> 00:10:49.030
  • - Come on.
  • 00:10:49.030 --> 00:10:50.080
  • You got these temptations going on.
  • 00:10:50.080 --> 00:10:51.280
  • You can't tell me you don't.
  • 00:10:51.280 --> 00:10:54.000
  • (thump)
  • 00:10:54.000 --> 00:10:55.000
  • (engines run)
  • 00:10:55.000 --> 00:10:57.150
  • (lively music)
  • 00:11:02.150 --> 00:11:05.030
  • - I absolutely do believe that married couples
  • 00:11:12.090 --> 00:11:14.140
  • should have parameters in place
  • 00:11:14.140 --> 00:11:16.090
  • to protect their faithfulness.
  • 00:11:16.090 --> 00:11:18.240
  • God, himself, even told us
  • 00:11:20.000 --> 00:11:21.230
  • that he has parameters for himself.
  • 00:11:21.230 --> 00:11:24.170
  • The Bible also lets us know
  • 00:11:24.170 --> 00:11:25.160
  • that how can two walk together
  • 00:11:25.160 --> 00:11:27.080
  • except they be agreed and with that
  • 00:11:27.080 --> 00:11:29.200
  • being in place, I really think
  • 00:11:29.200 --> 00:11:31.080
  • that there's nothing that a married couple can't do
  • 00:11:31.080 --> 00:11:34.000
  • if they stay within those parameters.
  • 00:11:34.000 --> 00:11:37.020
  • - Here's the next thing.
  • 00:11:38.230 --> 00:11:41.050
  • You got to walk with men.
  • 00:11:41.050 --> 00:11:43.150
  • We have a thing.
  • 00:11:43.150 --> 00:11:44.130
  • - And I was gonna say that.
  • 00:11:44.130 --> 00:11:45.270
  • He has got to be one of the most disciplined humans
  • 00:11:45.270 --> 00:11:47.110
  • I have ever met.
  • 00:11:47.110 --> 00:11:48.180
  • - I was getting ready to say that.
  • 00:11:48.180 --> 00:11:49.260
  • That's the only way he made it 20 years.
  • 00:11:49.260 --> 00:11:50.200
  • - Exactly, exactly.
  • 00:11:50.200 --> 00:11:51.190
  • Before I met him.
  • 00:11:51.190 --> 00:11:52.190
  • - You have to work?
  • 00:11:52.190 --> 00:11:53.260
  • - You have to walk with other men.
  • 00:11:53.260 --> 00:11:55.250
  • - Yeah, men that are like you.
  • 00:11:55.250 --> 00:11:58.120
  • When we first met.
  • 00:11:58.120 --> 00:11:59.110
  • - [Pastor] Oh absolutely.
  • 00:11:59.110 --> 00:12:00.120
  • - Exactly, when we first met--
  • 00:12:00.120 --> 00:12:01.200
  • - Hang with people who got your answer,
  • 00:12:01.200 --> 00:12:02.280
  • get away from those who got your problem.
  • 00:12:02.280 --> 00:12:03.230
  • - [Woman] Exactly.
  • 00:12:03.230 --> 00:12:04.180
  • - That's my motto.
  • 00:12:04.180 --> 00:12:05.170
  • - [Woman] Exactly, exactly.
  • 00:12:05.170 --> 00:12:06.120
  • - Like minded people.
  • 00:12:06.120 --> 00:12:07.190
  • - Yeah, and I really believe that God
  • 00:12:07.190 --> 00:12:09.070
  • had a plan for us long before
  • 00:12:09.070 --> 00:12:11.200
  • we ever knew what our plan was.
  • 00:12:11.200 --> 00:12:12.260
  • And everybody has to know that
  • 00:12:12.260 --> 00:12:14.000
  • God has a plan for you.
  • 00:12:14.000 --> 00:12:15.090
  • No matter what you can see
  • 00:12:15.090 --> 00:12:16.160
  • or what you think cuz you ain't smart enough.
  • 00:12:16.160 --> 00:12:17.140
  • - [Pastor] Come on, shout that.
  • 00:12:17.140 --> 00:12:18.080
  • God has a plan for us.
  • 00:12:18.080 --> 00:12:19.290
  • - You ain't smart enough to know
  • 00:12:19.290 --> 00:12:22.160
  • a plan for yourself.
  • 00:12:22.160 --> 00:12:23.250
  • You're not, so I, at 18, had just given my life
  • 00:12:23.250 --> 00:12:27.040
  • to the Lord before I went to college.
  • 00:12:27.040 --> 00:12:28.160
  • Then I meet him.
  • 00:12:28.160 --> 00:12:29.260
  • We go back to that story.
  • 00:12:29.260 --> 00:12:31.010
  • We're driving down the street.
  • 00:12:31.010 --> 00:12:32.080
  • I'm driving him to this restaurant,
  • 00:12:32.080 --> 00:12:33.250
  • I have no idea where we going
  • 00:12:33.250 --> 00:12:36.070
  • and he asked me a bunch of questions
  • 00:12:36.070 --> 00:12:38.270
  • cuz we trying to make small talk.
  • 00:12:38.270 --> 00:12:40.140
  • - See, he hittin' on you, he hittin' on you.
  • 00:12:40.140 --> 00:12:42.160

  • 00:12:42.160 --> 00:12:45.100
  • - See, he's hittin' on you.
  • 00:12:45.100 --> 00:12:46.180
  • - No, let me tell you what happened.
  • 00:12:46.180 --> 00:12:47.220
  • (laughing)
  • 00:12:47.220 --> 00:12:48.200
  • I'm sitting there and he says,
  • 00:12:48.200 --> 00:12:49.210
  • "Have you ever been to Houston?"
  • 00:12:49.210 --> 00:12:51.210
  • And I said, "Houston, I'm from D.C."
  • 00:12:51.210 --> 00:12:55.030
  • "No, I ain't been to Houston."
  • 00:12:55.030 --> 00:12:56.140
  • DC people don't leave town.
  • 00:12:56.140 --> 00:12:58.000
  • We don't get on planes and go places, what?
  • 00:12:58.000 --> 00:13:00.160
  • - And you all can't drive.
  • 00:13:00.160 --> 00:13:01.140
  • - What kind of question is that?
  • 00:13:01.140 --> 00:13:02.120
  • - [Pastor] And can't drive.
  • 00:13:02.120 --> 00:13:03.270
  • - And I look at him and I'm getting ready to give--
  • 00:13:03.270 --> 00:13:05.010
  • - Where, from DC, are you?
  • 00:13:05.010 --> 00:13:05.260
  • - I'm from Northwest.
  • 00:13:05.260 --> 00:13:06.230

  • - Ain't gonna hold it against me.
  • 00:13:10.210 --> 00:13:11.260
  • - [Pastor] Southeast in the house.

  • (laughing)
  • 00:13:12.160 --> 00:13:14.220
  • - [Woman] But I look at him and God clearly
  • 00:13:16.250 --> 00:13:19.000
  • speaks to me and says, "That's your husband."
  • 00:13:19.000 --> 00:13:22.130

  • - [Woman] I'm 18.
  • 00:13:25.130 --> 00:13:26.080
  • - You're 18.
  • 00:13:26.080 --> 00:13:27.030

  • 00:13:29.180 --> 00:13:31.060
  • - [Woman] Because, you know,
  • 00:13:31.060 --> 00:13:32.040
  • when you're freshly saved.
  • 00:13:32.040 --> 00:13:33.110
  • All you remember when you first got saved?
  • 00:13:33.110 --> 00:13:34.090
  • You could hear God drop a pin.
  • 00:13:34.090 --> 00:13:35.150
  • - You can hear him just as clear.
  • 00:13:35.150 --> 00:13:36.130
  • - [Woman] And you know it's God
  • 00:13:36.130 --> 00:13:37.110
  • cuz you don't like what he said.
  • 00:13:37.110 --> 00:13:39.090
  • (bang)

  • (lively music)
  • 00:13:45.200 --> 00:13:48.080
  • - I think you should at least date for a year or two.
  • 00:13:53.120 --> 00:13:56.080
  • So you could get to know each other,
  • 00:13:56.080 --> 00:13:58.090

  • - The night we went to dinner, after the show,
  • 00:14:05.290 --> 00:14:10.080
  • I'm like whoa, you were the girl?
  • 00:14:10.080 --> 00:14:12.110
  • - Now mind you, I go to an all girl's college in DC
  • 00:14:12.110 --> 00:14:15.180
  • - He don't come pick me up.
  • 00:14:15.180 --> 00:14:17.030
  • He sends a limo to get me at my dorm.
  • 00:14:17.030 --> 00:14:19.210
  • - When I looked at her that night.
  • 00:14:19.210 --> 00:14:21.060
  • Now remember, you don't know this but
  • 00:14:21.060 --> 00:14:23.020
  • we got engaged in six months.
  • 00:14:23.020 --> 00:14:25.110
  • - Yeah, we gonna get to that.
  • 00:14:25.110 --> 00:14:26.260
  • - So you don't decide to get married in six months.
  • 00:14:26.260 --> 00:14:28.150
  • So yes, to answer your question.
  • 00:14:28.150 --> 00:14:30.090
  • I was ready to roll a month later or whatever.
  • 00:14:30.090 --> 00:14:34.020

  • 00:14:34.020 --> 00:14:35.130
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:14:35.130 --> 00:14:36.110
  • - [Pastor] This is your wife.
  • 00:14:36.110 --> 00:14:37.240
  • - And I'm done, that's it.
  • 00:14:37.240 --> 00:14:39.080
  • Now, I will say one thing I did do.
  • 00:14:39.080 --> 00:14:42.060
  • And it's a funny story so.
  • 00:14:42.060 --> 00:14:44.080
  • So I said, "Look."
  • 00:14:44.080 --> 00:14:46.110
  • I didn't tell her this,
  • 00:14:46.110 --> 00:14:47.170
  • I said, "Can you come down to Houston?"
  • 00:14:47.170 --> 00:14:50.110
  • Well I gotta let my mamma eyeball her.
  • 00:14:50.110 --> 00:14:52.220
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:14:52.220 --> 00:14:54.000
  • - [Pastor] You got to let your momma.
  • 00:14:54.000 --> 00:14:54.280
  • - I didn't tell her that.
  • 00:14:54.280 --> 00:14:55.260

  • - So she's scared, they never flew whatever, whatever.
  • 00:14:57.090 --> 00:14:58.020
  • - What?
  • 00:14:58.020 --> 00:14:59.000
  • - [Pastor] She's never flown.
  • 00:14:59.000 --> 00:15:00.020
  • - I was 18, no.
  • 00:15:00.020 --> 00:15:01.170
  • - She said, "Can Robin, my roommate come with you?"
  • 00:15:01.170 --> 00:15:04.130
  • Now I'm saying to myself. "Okay, you're already young."
  • 00:15:04.130 --> 00:15:07.110
  • "My momma gonna laugh me off the planet."
  • 00:15:07.110 --> 00:15:09.190
  • "And you gonna have your other
  • 00:15:09.190 --> 00:15:10.240

  • 00:15:10.240 --> 00:15:12.010
  • (laughing)
  • 00:15:12.010 --> 00:15:14.000
  • So, I said, "I tell you what."
  • 00:15:14.000 --> 00:15:16.150
  • "If Robin has to come, you ain't commin'."
  • 00:15:17.260 --> 00:15:21.280
  • So she came and--
  • 00:15:21.280 --> 00:15:23.260
  • - [Pastor] You told Jewel that
  • 00:15:23.260 --> 00:15:25.060
  • if Robin has to come.
  • 00:15:25.060 --> 00:15:26.140
  • - So then, here I am again.
  • 00:15:26.140 --> 00:15:27.210
  • - Yeah, if Robin has to come with you then no.
  • 00:15:27.210 --> 00:15:29.010
  • Don't come.
  • 00:15:29.010 --> 00:15:30.080
  • - I'm like okay, maybe I'm supposed to do this.
  • 00:15:30.080 --> 00:15:31.060
  • Even though I don't want to do.
  • 00:15:31.060 --> 00:15:32.190
  • Cuz again, it's something I don't want to do.
  • 00:15:32.190 --> 00:15:33.270
  • I don't want to go meet your family.
  • 00:15:33.270 --> 00:15:34.250
  • I don't want to go to Houston.
  • 00:15:34.250 --> 00:15:36.010
  • - [Pastor] But you heard God say.
  • 00:15:36.010 --> 00:15:37.060
  • - I heard, I was like, oh I have to go.
  • 00:15:37.060 --> 00:15:38.120
  • - But she don't know, I guess she don't.
  • 00:15:38.120 --> 00:15:39.180
  • - No, I didn't know why I was going.
  • 00:15:39.180 --> 00:15:41.010
  • - She don't know why I'm tryin' to get her down there.
  • 00:15:41.010 --> 00:15:42.070
  • - Yeah, I don't know about all that.
  • 00:15:42.070 --> 00:15:43.150
  • - I'm ready to make up my mind ons where
  • 00:15:43.150 --> 00:15:45.090
  • I'm thinking now, so I got to let my momma
  • 00:15:45.090 --> 00:15:48.130
  • eyeball this girl and then she wanted to bring Robin
  • 00:15:48.130 --> 00:15:51.130
  • I'm like, "That ain't."
  • 00:15:51.130 --> 00:15:52.110
  • - [Pastor] Why was it important
  • 00:15:52.110 --> 00:15:53.090
  • for momma to eyeball her?
  • 00:15:53.090 --> 00:15:55.120
  • - Cuz momma was momma.
  • 00:15:55.120 --> 00:15:56.080
  • - Country boy.
  • 00:15:56.080 --> 00:15:57.030
  • - [Pastor] I know.
  • 00:15:57.030 --> 00:15:59.030
  • What happened to those moments.
  • 00:15:59.030 --> 00:16:00.070
  • - I always say this.
  • 00:16:00.070 --> 00:16:01.140
  • I don't know if my mom would have said no,
  • 00:16:01.140 --> 00:16:03.070
  • I don't know what I would have done
  • 00:16:03.070 --> 00:16:04.260
  • but I know momma had to eyeball her.
  • 00:16:04.260 --> 00:16:07.290
  • And I know momma ain't gonna eyeball you
  • 00:16:07.290 --> 00:16:09.220
  • with Robin with you, you all laughing and giggling so.
  • 00:16:09.220 --> 00:16:14.160
  • And I didn't tell momma but momma ain't crazy.
  • 00:16:14.160 --> 00:16:17.040
  • Momma know, he wanted me to meet this girl.
  • 00:16:17.040 --> 00:16:19.150
  • - [Pastor] Something up.
  • 00:16:19.150 --> 00:16:20.220
  • - Yeah and maybe she, I don't know,
  • 00:16:20.220 --> 00:16:21.200
  • we never talked about it.
  • 00:16:21.200 --> 00:16:22.270
  • Maybe she had a little intuition on it too.
  • 00:16:22.270 --> 00:16:24.150
  • But so once I came back with momma,
  • 00:16:24.150 --> 00:16:27.090
  • then I was good to go.
  • 00:16:27.090 --> 00:16:28.090
  • Okay, we done.
  • 00:16:28.090 --> 00:16:29.160
  • So we get married on her birthday.
  • 00:16:29.160 --> 00:16:31.080
  • - [Pastor] Six months later.
  • 00:16:31.080 --> 00:16:32.080
  • - We get engaged on her birthday.
  • 00:16:32.080 --> 00:16:33.220
  • - We get engaged on my birthday six months later.
  • 00:16:33.220 --> 00:16:34.290
  • - And remember, half of the six months,
  • 00:16:34.290 --> 00:16:36.130
  • it's the off season cuz I'm gone
  • 00:16:36.130 --> 00:16:37.200
  • after the Super Bowl and then, what is it?
  • 00:16:37.200 --> 00:16:40.050
  • January, February, March.
  • 00:16:40.050 --> 00:16:42.090
  • So it's really not a lot of time
  • 00:16:42.090 --> 00:16:44.250
  • that we have together but I knew that.
  • 00:16:44.250 --> 00:16:48.000
  • - [Pastor] That was the year we went to the Super Bowl.
  • 00:16:49.130 --> 00:16:51.150
  • - Well they went the year before I came and won.
  • 00:16:51.150 --> 00:16:53.200
  • They went the year I came and lost.
  • 00:16:53.200 --> 00:16:55.110
  • - [Pastor] Oh wow.
  • 00:16:55.110 --> 00:16:56.260
  • - Yeah, so I'm the reason they lost the next year.
  • 00:16:56.260 --> 00:16:58.130
  • - That's bad Darrell.
  • 00:16:58.130 --> 00:16:59.180
  • - [Darrell] I said, okay marriage.
  • 00:16:59.180 --> 00:17:03.070
  • We don't even really know exactly what
  • 00:17:03.070 --> 00:17:05.070
  • the definition of the word.
  • 00:17:05.070 --> 00:17:06.160
  • We prayed Lord,
  • 00:17:06.160 --> 00:17:08.080
  • whatever marriage mean
  • 00:17:08.080 --> 00:17:09.230
  • whatever your definition is.
  • 00:17:09.230 --> 00:17:11.030
  • - Wow.
  • 00:17:11.030 --> 00:17:12.100
  • - [Darrell] That's what we want to be.
  • 00:17:12.100 --> 00:17:13.040
  • - [Jewel] Make us that.
  • 00:17:13.040 --> 00:17:14.120
  • - That's our goal, whatever that is.
  • 00:17:14.120 --> 00:17:16.180
  • I'm serious.
  • 00:17:17.290 --> 00:17:19.200
  • - I know.
  • 00:17:19.200 --> 00:17:20.180
  • - We're serious about marriage.
  • 00:17:20.180 --> 00:17:21.100
  • - I can tell.
  • 00:17:21.100 --> 00:17:22.050
  • - This is my whole life.
  • 00:17:22.050 --> 00:17:23.290
  • Let me just make this clear.
  • 00:17:23.290 --> 00:17:25.220
  • My life wasn't the Redskins.
  • 00:17:25.220 --> 00:17:27.250
  • Now every wear I go, I'm Darrell Green
  • 00:17:27.250 --> 00:17:29.070
  • from the Redskins.
  • 00:17:29.070 --> 00:17:30.130
  • People don't get it.
  • 00:17:30.130 --> 00:17:31.200
  • - Come on man.
  • 00:17:31.200 --> 00:17:32.270
  • - Man the Redskins was a dumb job.
  • 00:17:32.270 --> 00:17:34.030
  • - Come on.
  • 00:17:34.030 --> 00:17:35.010
  • - I was gonna get another job
  • 00:17:35.010 --> 00:17:36.080
  • if I didn't work for them.
  • 00:17:36.080 --> 00:17:37.080
  • - Come on.
  • 00:17:37.080 --> 00:17:38.230
  • - My daddy worked 30 years at Maxwell House Coffee.
  • 00:17:38.230 --> 00:17:40.100
  • My sister worked 30 for the postal.
  • 00:17:40.100 --> 00:17:42.030
  • I was gonna get a job but because the way
  • 00:17:42.030 --> 00:17:45.210
  • it rolls in the world,
  • 00:17:45.210 --> 00:17:47.050
  • people think you, man that's Darrell Green,
  • 00:17:47.050 --> 00:17:49.070
  • he's a Redskin, man,
  • 00:17:49.070 --> 00:17:50.130
  • the Redskins was a good job and guess what?
  • 00:17:50.130 --> 00:17:53.070
  • I wasn't stupid.
  • 00:17:53.070 --> 00:17:54.230
  • I worked it hard for 20 years
  • 00:17:54.230 --> 00:17:57.020
  • and took care of business.
  • 00:17:57.020 --> 00:17:57.280
  • But that was not.
  • 00:17:57.280 --> 00:18:00.020
  • - [Jewel] Who you are.
  • 00:18:00.020 --> 00:18:01.000
  • - If it was, why did I not go.
  • 00:18:01.000 --> 00:18:02.110
  • I'm in the Hall of Fame.
  • 00:18:02.110 --> 00:18:04.150
  • (audience cheers)
  • 00:18:04.150 --> 00:18:07.070
  • How many times you think I was a free agent?
  • 00:18:07.070 --> 00:18:09.170
  • God had told me years ago.
  • 00:18:09.170 --> 00:18:11.220
  • So I knew it wasn't about this team.
  • 00:18:11.220 --> 00:18:13.270
  • Why am I here for the team?
  • 00:18:13.270 --> 00:18:15.100
  • I'm here for our church.
  • 00:18:15.100 --> 00:18:16.220
  • We help to raise up a church
  • 00:18:16.220 --> 00:18:18.000
  • from 70 people to over 4.000 people.
  • 00:18:18.000 --> 00:18:20.200
  • - Come on.
  • 00:18:20.200 --> 00:18:21.180
  • - We're part of that church.
  • 00:18:21.180 --> 00:18:22.210
  • - I love it.
  • 00:18:22.210 --> 00:18:24.060
  • - We're part of what God is doing in our children.
  • 00:18:24.060 --> 00:18:25.140
  • - I love it.
  • 00:18:25.140 --> 00:18:26.190
  • - What God is doing in the earth.
  • 00:18:26.190 --> 00:18:27.240
  • So we always understood that and it does.
  • 00:18:27.240 --> 00:18:30.140
  • - Well it's a sweet platform.
  • 00:18:30.140 --> 00:18:33.070
  • God put you on that field to be highlighted in this field.
  • 00:18:33.070 --> 00:18:37.120
  • So that many would be drawn to you
  • 00:18:39.070 --> 00:18:41.230
  • and you'll would be able to convey this marriage.
  • 00:18:41.230 --> 00:18:43.130
  • - Okay, okay.
  • 00:18:43.130 --> 00:18:44.160
  • - [Jewel] The only way, we felt,
  • 00:18:45.140 --> 00:18:46.200
  • we could, really, accomplish the thing.
  • 00:18:46.200 --> 00:18:48.020
  • So, mind you again, when we first got married,
  • 00:18:48.020 --> 00:18:50.260
  • we hadn't been saved that long.
  • 00:18:50.260 --> 00:18:52.030
  • The discipleship was priority to us
  • 00:18:52.030 --> 00:18:55.120
  • over just hanging out and being married.
  • 00:18:55.120 --> 00:18:58.000
  • My commitment to God and walking with women
  • 00:18:58.000 --> 00:19:00.270
  • that were gonna teach me
  • 00:19:00.270 --> 00:19:01.250
  • how to be a Christian woman.
  • 00:19:01.250 --> 00:19:03.020
  • Cuz if I can't be a strong woman,
  • 00:19:03.020 --> 00:19:04.000
  • I can't do nothing for him.
  • 00:19:04.000 --> 00:19:04.290
  • I can't do nothing for my kids.
  • 00:19:04.290 --> 00:19:05.270
  • - So I was going to George Mason
  • 00:19:05.270 --> 00:19:07.000
  • to train for football, twice a day.
  • 00:19:07.000 --> 00:19:08.070
  • I was doing the same thing trying
  • 00:19:08.070 --> 00:19:09.070
  • to train for faith too.
  • 00:19:09.070 --> 00:19:10.220
  • I was meeting with the pastor at 6 o'clock in the morning,
  • 00:19:10.220 --> 00:19:13.190
  • 7 o'clock in the evening.
  • 00:19:13.190 --> 00:19:14.260
  • So we were investing in this thing--
  • 00:19:14.260 --> 00:19:17.080
  • - And explain when you met with them and
  • 00:19:17.080 --> 00:19:19.060
  • the questions, the tests, the (mumbles).
  • 00:19:19.060 --> 00:19:20.290
  • - So we have, even to this day,
  • 00:19:20.290 --> 00:19:22.200
  • seven questions, accountability questions.
  • 00:19:22.200 --> 00:19:25.290
  • Have you been with a person, of the opposite sex,
  • 00:19:25.290 --> 00:19:27.220
  • that would seem like it's compromising?
  • 00:19:27.220 --> 00:19:29.210
  • I got to answer that every month.
  • 00:19:29.210 --> 00:19:31.100
  • Have you read anything?
  • 00:19:31.100 --> 00:19:32.130
  • Have you been with someone?
  • 00:19:32.130 --> 00:19:33.250
  • Have you been tiding and offering?
  • 00:19:33.250 --> 00:19:35.170
  • Have you been giving?
  • 00:19:35.170 --> 00:19:36.250
  • Have you been carrying out the calling.
  • 00:19:36.250 --> 00:19:39.260
  • In other words, if you work for a company,
  • 00:19:39.260 --> 00:19:41.270
  • have you worked hard on that job?
  • 00:19:41.270 --> 00:19:44.050
  • And then also--
  • 00:19:44.050 --> 00:19:45.040
  • - [Pastor] Is the last question,
  • 00:19:45.040 --> 00:19:46.110
  • now have you lied about this first six.
  • 00:19:46.110 --> 00:19:48.120
  • - Yes, yes.
  • 00:19:48.120 --> 00:19:49.070
  • - That's it.
  • 00:19:49.070 --> 00:19:50.090
  • We added another one but yeah,
  • 00:19:50.090 --> 00:19:51.080
  • that was our last question.
  • 00:19:51.080 --> 00:19:52.130
  • - That was yeah, yeah.
  • 00:19:52.130 --> 00:19:53.270
  • An essential key in your success
  • 00:19:53.270 --> 00:19:56.220
  • was always having an accountability system.
  • 00:19:56.220 --> 00:20:01.050
  • Somebody in your life.
  • 00:20:01.050 --> 00:20:02.160
  • Most men don't walk with other men
  • 00:20:02.160 --> 00:20:04.220
  • to hold them accountable.
  • 00:20:04.220 --> 00:20:06.190
  • - [Darrell] That's the worst thing you can do.
  • 00:20:06.190 --> 00:20:09.060
  • - That's the worst thing you can do.
  • 00:20:09.060 --> 00:20:10.220
  • - Most men walk in pride when it comes
  • 00:20:10.220 --> 00:20:12.270
  • to certain things like that.
  • 00:20:12.270 --> 00:20:14.060
  • Because they want to feel like, I got this.
  • 00:20:14.060 --> 00:20:17.240
  • - If you ask these wives which one
  • 00:20:17.240 --> 00:20:19.240
  • of these men are you referring to
  • 00:20:19.240 --> 00:20:22.050
  • in their husbands wife, I wonder who they would say?
  • 00:20:22.050 --> 00:20:26.040
  • - [Darrell] Say it again.
  • 00:20:26.040 --> 00:20:27.110
  • - If you ask these wives which one
  • 00:20:27.110 --> 00:20:30.060
  • of the men that are in their lives,
  • 00:20:30.060 --> 00:20:32.210
  • like the men you just described,
  • 00:20:32.210 --> 00:20:35.140
  • I wonder what she would say?
  • 00:20:35.140 --> 00:20:36.200
  • - [Darrell] Yeah for example in that,
  • 00:20:36.200 --> 00:20:38.060
  • if I lost my mind, how many guys
  • 00:20:38.060 --> 00:20:40.260
  • does she have that she
  • 00:20:42.000 --> 00:20:42.280
  • - [Pastor] That she can call.
  • 00:20:42.280 --> 00:20:43.220
  • - Boom, right now.
  • 00:20:43.220 --> 00:20:44.200
  • - [Pastor] Just say bang.
  • 00:20:44.200 --> 00:20:45.180
  • - If you go call Tim right now.

  • - Oh right on.
  • 00:20:49.180 --> 00:20:50.170
  • - [Pastor] See, see, see.
  • 00:20:50.170 --> 00:20:51.120
  • You need, no, no.
  • 00:20:51.120 --> 00:20:52.180
  • If you didn't come here for anything else,
  • 00:20:52.180 --> 00:20:54.110
  • cuz nobody can tell you anything.
  • 00:20:54.110 --> 00:20:57.030
  • You ain't submitted to anything.
  • 00:20:58.170 --> 00:21:00.140
  • Darrell, we was holding a discussion,
  • 00:21:00.140 --> 00:21:01.240
  • you and I and I said something,
  • 00:21:01.240 --> 00:21:03.210
  • you said, "I got it."
  • 00:21:03.210 --> 00:21:04.280
  • I'm submitting to what you're saying now.
  • 00:21:04.280 --> 00:21:07.230
  • I said, "Good God."
  • 00:21:07.230 --> 00:21:09.100
  • You heard it.
  • 00:21:11.150 --> 00:21:12.220
  • It was distinctive, it was clear, concise,
  • 00:21:12.220 --> 00:21:16.010
  • it registered in your spirit and you came right under
  • 00:21:16.010 --> 00:21:20.090
  • a word that I gave you.
  • 00:21:20.090 --> 00:21:22.130
  • Now if a man doesn't have that in his life.
  • 00:21:22.130 --> 00:21:25.140
  • - Some discipline.
  • 00:21:25.140 --> 00:21:27.000
  • - You know, come on, talk.
  • 00:21:27.000 --> 00:21:28.220
  • - [Darrell] I feel, being in professional sports.
  • 00:21:28.220 --> 00:21:33.040
  • - Stop right there.
  • 00:21:33.040 --> 00:21:34.110
  • Ask your husband who was that guy?
  • 00:21:34.110 --> 00:21:36.240
  • (bang)
  • 00:21:38.050 --> 00:21:39.040
  • (engines run)
  • 00:21:39.040 --> 00:21:41.190
  • (lively music)
  • 00:21:49.080 --> 00:21:51.250
  • - Communications is one.
  • 00:22:03.100 --> 00:22:05.110
  • - Love is probably up there.
  • 00:22:05.110 --> 00:22:08.120
  • - Well hopefully, we have that. (laughs)
  • 00:22:08.120 --> 00:22:10.280
  • - I think the last thing is respect for each other.
  • 00:22:10.280 --> 00:22:15.030
  • - I was gonna say compromise.
  • 00:22:17.040 --> 00:22:19.020
  • - Yeah, compromise is also.
  • 00:22:19.020 --> 00:22:20.130
  • There's more than three but, you know.
  • 00:22:20.130 --> 00:22:23.130
  • Marriage is tough but if we have those things,
  • 00:22:23.130 --> 00:22:25.260
  • were we respect each other, love each other
  • 00:22:25.260 --> 00:22:28.010
  • and communicate, I think we got it.
  • 00:22:28.010 --> 00:22:31.110
  • - That's why we're here (laughs) two hours.
  • 00:22:31.110 --> 00:22:34.130
  • - So you want to know how do you do that?
  • 00:22:34.130 --> 00:22:37.150
  • It starts with loving Jesus.
  • 00:22:37.150 --> 00:22:39.260
  • My wife ain't over Jesus.
  • 00:22:39.260 --> 00:22:42.100
  • My Redskins job wasn't over Jesus.
  • 00:22:42.100 --> 00:22:45.070
  • This stuff is serious and it's for generations.
  • 00:22:45.070 --> 00:22:49.220
  • You know, he said tell them,
  • 00:22:49.220 --> 00:22:51.130
  • tell your children about this.
  • 00:22:51.130 --> 00:22:54.020
  • Man my whole life has been lived.
  • 00:22:54.020 --> 00:22:57.130
  • This is what I live.
  • 00:22:57.130 --> 00:22:59.120
  • Oh man it's the Redskins.
  • 00:22:59.120 --> 00:23:00.210
  • Man, that was a dumb job that I worked hard at
  • 00:23:00.210 --> 00:23:02.250
  • and I should have worked hard at
  • 00:23:02.250 --> 00:23:04.040
  • cuz I got a family.
  • 00:23:04.040 --> 00:23:05.230
  • You should be working hard.
  • 00:23:05.230 --> 00:23:07.140
  • But my real life.
  • 00:23:07.140 --> 00:23:09.030
  • - [Pastor] Come one.
  • 00:23:09.030 --> 00:23:10.060
  • - Was advancing the kingdom
  • 00:23:10.060 --> 00:23:11.120
  • and loving Jesus and trying to build
  • 00:23:11.120 --> 00:23:13.180
  • (audience applauds)
  • 00:23:13.180 --> 00:23:14.290

  • we going from O and three.
  • 00:23:17.250 --> 00:23:19.140
  • We ain't won a game.
  • 00:23:19.140 --> 00:23:20.210
  • - [Pastor] Yes, that's what I'm talking about.
  • 00:23:20.210 --> 00:23:22.050

  • 00:23:33.100 --> 00:23:35.110
  • "Cuz it's already there for you."
  • 00:23:35.110 --> 00:23:37.210

  • No, I'm living for the generations to come
  • 00:23:44.070 --> 00:23:47.160
  • that we will advance God's kingdom
  • 00:23:49.000 --> 00:23:50.160
  • and we will keep winning for the glory of God.
  • 00:23:50.160 --> 00:23:53.060
  • - [Woman] I like that.
  • 00:23:53.060 --> 00:23:54.040
  • - In a household, in Jerusalem,
  • 00:23:54.040 --> 00:23:56.250
  • you will be a witness when the Holy Spirit comes.
  • 00:23:56.250 --> 00:23:58.230
  • - Absolutely.
  • 00:23:58.230 --> 00:23:59.180
  • - Start at home.
  • 00:23:59.180 --> 00:24:00.150
  • - Absolutely.
  • 00:24:00.150 --> 00:24:01.210
  • - And then let's go to other places.
  • 00:24:01.210 --> 00:24:03.070
  • - Other most parts of the world.
  • 00:24:03.070 --> 00:24:04.120
  • - And I was just praying tonight that,
  • 00:24:04.120 --> 00:24:06.050
  • I really was praying this that,
  • 00:24:06.050 --> 00:24:08.120
  • I wish that God would let this,
  • 00:24:08.120 --> 00:24:10.190
  • want something in us where we can
  • 00:24:10.190 --> 00:24:13.020
  • go around and share.
  • 00:24:13.020 --> 00:24:14.190
  • - Come on.
  • 00:24:14.190 --> 00:24:15.170
  • - And we're not great ministers
  • 00:24:15.170 --> 00:24:16.160
  • or preachers or nothing but--
  • 00:24:16.160 --> 00:24:18.240
  • (chattering)
  • 00:24:18.240 --> 00:24:21.030
  • I just thought about tonight.
  • 00:24:21.030 --> 00:24:21.290
  • I said Lord.
  • 00:24:21.290 --> 00:24:22.240
  • - You got the fruit.
  • 00:24:22.240 --> 00:24:24.040
  • - If something you want to do in us,
  • 00:24:24.040 --> 00:24:27.230
  • let it happen tonight.
  • 00:24:27.230 --> 00:24:29.020
  • Cuz I love to do this because it hurts me
  • 00:24:29.020 --> 00:24:33.050
  • to see people lost and a lot of people
  • 00:24:33.050 --> 00:24:36.120
  • got so much stuff that the devil
  • 00:24:36.120 --> 00:24:38.150
  • just got 'em wrapped up.
  • 00:24:38.150 --> 00:24:40.150
  • And everybody, they talk about,
  • 00:24:41.130 --> 00:24:44.030
  • Pastor Tim, my best buddy.
  • 00:24:45.010 --> 00:24:46.170
  • - Absolutely.
  • 00:24:46.170 --> 00:24:47.240
  • - Tim never say his daddy in his life.
  • 00:24:47.240 --> 00:24:50.200
  • And he could sit here and this is his same testimony.
  • 00:24:50.200 --> 00:24:53.140
  • He never saw the man.
  • 00:24:53.140 --> 00:24:54.270
  • Love God, love his family,
  • 00:24:54.270 --> 00:24:57.030
  • advancing the kingdom, raising his children.
  • 00:24:57.030 --> 00:24:59.170
  • So, Jesus Christ, his arms are not too short.
  • 00:24:59.170 --> 00:25:03.120
  • His power is all power.
  • 00:25:04.180 --> 00:25:06.160
  • - [Pastor] Absolutely.
  • 00:25:07.170 --> 00:25:08.230
  • - And so, to do this, I'm about to bust
  • 00:25:08.230 --> 00:25:11.050
  • because to be here with you guys
  • 00:25:11.050 --> 00:25:13.020
  • and to see all you all.
  • 00:25:13.020 --> 00:25:15.060
  • You all willing to come here tonight,
  • 00:25:15.060 --> 00:25:17.240
  • three or four hours.
  • 00:25:17.240 --> 00:25:19.180
  • Man, we could win.
  • 00:25:19.180 --> 00:25:20.250
  • - But I heard you say here tonight, you died.
  • 00:25:20.250 --> 00:25:24.150
  • Okay, you literally set up an accountability system
  • 00:25:27.170 --> 00:25:31.230
  • and you train every day to win.
  • 00:25:34.060 --> 00:25:36.240
  • But that was, not only, in football.
  • 00:25:39.240 --> 00:25:42.240
  • You are training like that and see, the metaphor--
  • 00:25:44.150 --> 00:25:48.200
  • - [Woman] Yeah, it's not compartmentalized.
  • 00:25:50.000 --> 00:25:51.190
  • - It's not compartmentalized.
  • 00:25:51.190 --> 00:25:53.070
  • - That discrimination is going across the board.
  • 00:25:53.070 --> 00:25:54.290
  • - He has taken what he's done
  • 00:25:54.290 --> 00:25:57.050
  • out on that football field.
  • 00:25:57.050 --> 00:25:59.050
  • Oh no, thank you Holy Spirit I heard that.
  • 00:25:59.050 --> 00:26:02.200
  • You have taken what you have done
  • 00:26:02.200 --> 00:26:04.110
  • in the kingdom and took it to the football field.
  • 00:26:04.110 --> 00:26:08.180
  • You didn't get this kingdom mindset
  • 00:26:08.180 --> 00:26:10.200
  • from the football field, oooohhh.
  • 00:26:10.200 --> 00:26:13.130
  • You took this kingdom mindset on the football field
  • 00:26:16.260 --> 00:26:21.210
  • and used the analogies of the football field
  • 00:26:21.210 --> 00:26:25.280
  • to show people in the kingdom.
  • 00:26:25.280 --> 00:26:27.200
  • - [Woman] Yep.
  • 00:26:27.200 --> 00:26:28.260
  • - Wow, didn't you enjoy that?
  • 00:26:31.190 --> 00:26:33.180
  • I know you did because it totally
  • 00:26:33.180 --> 00:26:35.160
  • changed my life to see Darrell Green
  • 00:26:35.160 --> 00:26:37.250
  • and his wife and Doctor Mike and Doctor Dee-Dee
  • 00:26:37.250 --> 00:26:40.100
  • and it's the fun and fellowship
  • 00:26:40.100 --> 00:26:42.070
  • of life and love.
  • 00:26:42.070 --> 00:26:43.190
  • But, on today, sometimes we get weary.
  • 00:26:43.190 --> 00:26:46.060
  • Maybe we didn't have gifts or maybe
  • 00:26:46.060 --> 00:26:47.240
  • we didn't have family to spend with.
  • 00:26:47.240 --> 00:26:49.160
  • But don't worry.
  • 00:26:49.160 --> 00:26:50.190
  • Jesus is with you.
  • 00:26:50.190 --> 00:26:51.220
  • He's present and on this day,
  • 00:26:51.220 --> 00:26:53.220
  • I want you to celebrate Jesus
  • 00:26:53.220 --> 00:26:55.060
