  • is fullness of joy.
  • 00:00:03.200 --> 00:00:05.160
  • (chuckles)
  • 00:00:05.170 --> 00:00:06.240
  • That's an expensive commodity nowadays.
  • 00:00:06.250 --> 00:00:09.140
  • Fullness of joy at his right hand,
  • 00:00:09.150 --> 00:00:11.180
  • pleasures forevermore.
  • 00:00:11.190 --> 00:00:13.010
  • But how do I engage God's presence?
  • 00:00:13.020 --> 00:00:15.220
  • You want to find out?
  • 00:00:15.230 --> 00:00:16.280
  • That's where we're going.
  • 00:00:16.290 --> 00:00:17.270
  • Stick around.
  • 00:00:17.280 --> 00:00:19.000

  • 00:00:21.010 --> 00:00:34.230
  • The Bible says that man is the glory of God.
  • 00:00:34.240 --> 00:00:38.140
  • Man is the glory of God.
  • 00:00:40.120 --> 00:00:41.200
  • Go study that, it's in 1st Corinthians.
  • 00:00:41.210 --> 00:00:43.020
  • Actually, I think that's in Chapter 7.
  • 00:00:43.030 --> 00:00:45.050
  • Man is the glory of God.
  • 00:00:46.030 --> 00:00:47.120
  • The word glory means likeness, and resemble,
  • 00:00:47.130 --> 00:00:49.220
  • and reflection in the New Testament.
  • 00:00:49.230 --> 00:00:51.140
  • In the Old Testament, it means weight.
  • 00:00:51.150 --> 00:00:53.090
  • In the New Testament, it means resemblance and reflection.
  • 00:00:53.100 --> 00:00:56.090
  • Man and the earth is the resemblance
  • 00:00:56.100 --> 00:00:58.160
  • and the reflection of God.
  • 00:00:58.170 --> 00:00:59.220
  • Man is the glory of God.
  • 00:00:59.230 --> 00:01:01.190
  • That means God's only image in the earth is man.
  • 00:01:01.200 --> 00:01:04.210
  • So, the world ought to be able to look at man,
  • 00:01:05.260 --> 00:01:08.130
  • and see what God is like.
  • 00:01:08.140 --> 00:01:10.140
  • I take those type of scriptures seriously.
  • 00:01:10.150 --> 00:01:13.120
  • I want people to see the way I handle hardship,
  • 00:01:13.130 --> 00:01:16.130
  • and I want the glory of God to be manifest.
  • 00:01:16.140 --> 00:01:19.050
  • I want people to see the way I deal with other people,
  • 00:01:19.060 --> 00:01:21.160
  • and the glory of God to be manifest.
  • 00:01:21.170 --> 00:01:23.080
  • I want people to see the character
  • 00:01:23.090 --> 00:01:24.260
  • with which I live my life,
  • 00:01:24.270 --> 00:01:26.040
  • and the integrity which I try to uphold.
  • 00:01:26.050 --> 00:01:28.090
  • And of course, I'm flawed, and I fail like everybody.
  • 00:01:28.100 --> 00:01:30.280
  • But for the most part,
  • 00:01:30.290 --> 00:01:32.120
  • I want people to see a man who lives a disciplined life,
  • 00:01:32.130 --> 00:01:35.010
  • Why?
  • 00:01:35.020 --> 00:01:36.080
  • Because I am the glory of God in the earth.
  • 00:01:36.090 --> 00:01:38.110
  • I am the reflection of God in the earth.
  • 00:01:38.120 --> 00:01:41.010
  • So God shines on me, and my reflection hits others.
  • 00:01:41.020 --> 00:01:44.060
  • They're looking at me to see what God is like.
  • 00:01:44.070 --> 00:01:46.220
  • Malachi 1:11 said,
  • 00:01:46.230 --> 00:01:48.230
  • "I want my name to be great among the Gentiles."
  • 00:01:48.240 --> 00:01:52.030
  • He told this to Israel.
  • 00:01:52.040 --> 00:01:53.160
  • What was he saying?
  • 00:01:53.170 --> 00:01:54.250
  • I want people to be able to see how you treat me,
  • 00:01:54.260 --> 00:01:57.250
  • and know that I'm a great God.
  • 00:01:57.260 --> 00:01:59.140
  • The Gentiles don't know me, but they know that you know me,
  • 00:01:59.150 --> 00:02:03.160
  • and I want them to see the way you treat me,
  • 00:02:03.170 --> 00:02:05.260
  • and know that I'm great.
  • 00:02:05.270 --> 00:02:07.110
  • I want them to see the way you praise me and say,
  • 00:02:07.120 --> 00:02:10.010
  • "They must have a great God."
  • 00:02:10.020 --> 00:02:11.220
  • I want them to see the way you worship me and say,
  • 00:02:11.230 --> 00:02:14.090
  • "They must have a great God."
  • 00:02:14.100 --> 00:02:15.280
  • I want them to see the way you give tithe,
  • 00:02:15.290 --> 00:02:17.250
  • and give offerings, and say,
  • 00:02:17.260 --> 00:02:19.020
  • "I don't know their God, but the way they give,
  • 00:02:19.030 --> 00:02:21.160
  • "and how sacrificial they are,
  • 00:02:21.170 --> 00:02:23.010
  • "he must be a great God."
  • 00:02:23.020 --> 00:02:24.290
  • I want them to see the guidelines and the perimeters
  • 00:02:25.000 --> 00:02:28.000
  • that rule your life,
  • 00:02:28.010 --> 00:02:29.060
  • and the boundaries you live by, and say,
  • 00:02:29.070 --> 00:02:30.250
  • "I do not know their God, but he must be a great God."
  • 00:02:30.260 --> 00:02:34.220
  • I am the glory of God in the earth.
  • 00:02:34.230 --> 00:02:37.210
  • (electronic keyboard music)
  • 00:02:37.220 --> 00:02:39.160
  • Now, the Bible says that woman is the glory of man.
  • 00:02:39.170 --> 00:02:44.150
  • So, I'm right here in the middle.
  • 00:02:44.160 --> 00:02:46.050
  • God wants everybody to be able to see me to know he's great,
  • 00:02:47.190 --> 00:02:51.020
  • but then a woman is the glory of man.
  • 00:02:52.160 --> 00:02:55.130
  • So, those of you especially that are married,
  • 00:02:58.250 --> 00:03:01.100
  • your wife is a reflection of how you treat her.
  • 00:03:02.230 --> 00:03:07.080
  • Many people know the time
  • 00:03:07.090 --> 00:03:08.200
  • when our marriage went through brokenness.
  • 00:03:08.210 --> 00:03:10.060
  • I took personal responsibility for that
  • 00:03:10.070 --> 00:03:12.250
  • in a visitation I had from God one night
  • 00:03:12.260 --> 00:03:15.290
  • when God reminded me of those scriptures and said,
  • 00:03:16.000 --> 00:03:17.280
  • "She is an extension of you.
  • 00:03:17.290 --> 00:03:19.070
  • "If she's broken, she's not broken by herself.
  • 00:03:19.080 --> 00:03:21.280
  • "If there's something broken in her,
  • 00:03:21.290 --> 00:03:23.280
  • "There's something broken in you,
  • 00:03:23.290 --> 00:03:25.190
  • "because woman is the glory of man."
  • 00:03:26.250 --> 00:03:29.100
  • If she's at peace,
  • 00:03:30.130 --> 00:03:32.040
  • (clears throat)
  • 00:03:32.050 --> 00:03:33.020
  • She is a reflection of me.
  • 00:03:33.030 --> 00:03:35.080
  • If she's joyful, she is a reflection of me.
  • 00:03:35.090 --> 00:03:38.170
  • If she's taken care of, she is a reflection of me.
  • 00:03:38.180 --> 00:03:42.060
  • Do you understand what I'm talking about?
  • 00:03:42.070 --> 00:03:43.200
  • If she's blessed, she is a reflection of me.
  • 00:03:43.210 --> 00:03:46.160
  • So, I am an extension of God.
  • 00:03:46.170 --> 00:03:49.130
  • God is directly, intricately involved and interested
  • 00:03:49.140 --> 00:03:53.130
  • in the fact that I am blessed and well taken care of,
  • 00:03:53.140 --> 00:03:57.040
  • for the fact that I am his glory in the earth.
  • 00:03:57.050 --> 00:04:00.120
  • And likewise, I look at my wife,
  • 00:04:00.130 --> 00:04:02.250
  • and I am intricately interested that she be taken care of,
  • 00:04:02.260 --> 00:04:06.250
  • because she is my glory,
  • 00:04:06.260 --> 00:04:08.140
  • and she is the reflection of me in the earth.
  • 00:04:08.150 --> 00:04:11.030
  • And people ought to be able to look at your wife
  • 00:04:11.040 --> 00:04:13.160
  • and tell something about you.
  • 00:04:13.170 --> 00:04:15.050
  • And people ought to be able to look at you
  • 00:04:15.060 --> 00:04:16.210
  • and tell something about your God.
  • 00:04:16.220 --> 00:04:18.210
  • You look at me and say,
  • 00:04:18.220 --> 00:04:19.280
  • "Pastor, I don't like that system."
  • 00:04:19.290 --> 00:04:21.110
  • Well, I didn't create the system.
  • 00:04:21.120 --> 00:04:23.010
  • I'm just teaching it as a messenger.
  • 00:04:23.020 --> 00:04:24.290
  • Somebody shout amen.
  • 00:04:25.000 --> 00:04:26.040
  • (electronic keyboard music)
  • 00:04:26.050 --> 00:04:26.290
  • (audience murmurs)
  • 00:04:27.000 --> 00:04:27.260
  • I'm losing my amens now.
  • 00:04:27.270 --> 00:04:29.100
  • Oh, uh-huh.
  • 00:04:29.110 --> 00:04:30.170
  • So you say,
  • 00:04:30.180 --> 00:04:31.240
  • "What does this have to do with anything?"
  • 00:04:31.250 --> 00:04:33.050
  • We have lived in times where women did not have
  • 00:04:34.100 --> 00:04:37.170
  • equal opportunity or equality
  • 00:04:37.180 --> 00:04:41.000
  • as men in the sight of others.
  • 00:04:41.010 --> 00:04:42.130
  • But I call Jesus the greatest liberator of women
  • 00:04:42.140 --> 00:04:44.220
  • there's ever been.
  • 00:04:44.230 --> 00:04:45.220
  • When Jesus wanted to entrust the son of God into the earth,
  • 00:04:47.050 --> 00:04:49.290
  • he didn't entrust it to a man.
  • 00:04:50.000 --> 00:04:51.170
  • He put the son of God in the hands of a woman.
  • 00:04:53.060 --> 00:04:55.190
  • There was an argument when I was a youth
  • 00:04:56.260 --> 00:04:58.140
  • over whether or not women should be preachers.
  • 00:04:58.150 --> 00:05:01.180
  • And it got to me one time when I was just a youth.
  • 00:05:01.190 --> 00:05:03.260
  • I wasn't a theologian by any stretch of the imagination.
  • 00:05:03.270 --> 00:05:06.150
  • They said, "What about you?
  • 00:05:06.160 --> 00:05:07.220
  • "Do you think women should be preachers?"
  • 00:05:07.230 --> 00:05:09.040
  • And I said,
  • 00:05:09.050 --> 00:05:10.200
  • "If God can put the word of God in the womb of a woman,
  • 00:05:10.210 --> 00:05:13.220
  • "why can't he put the word of God in the mouth of a woman?"
  • 00:05:13.230 --> 00:05:16.120
  • (audience cheers and applauds)
  • 00:05:16.130 --> 00:05:18.020
  • - [Man In Audience] Wow.
  • 00:05:18.030 --> 00:05:19.230
  • - I said, "If a woman can carry
  • 00:05:19.240 --> 00:05:22.050
  • "the word of God in her womb, and birth it,
  • 00:05:22.060 --> 00:05:24.270
  • "why can't she carry it in her mouth, on a stage,
  • 00:05:24.280 --> 00:05:27.160
  • "and birth it?"
  • 00:05:27.170 --> 00:05:28.290
  • Just my thoughts, you don't have to agree with me.
  • 00:05:29.000 --> 00:05:30.210
  • (audience cheers and applauds)
  • 00:05:30.220 --> 00:05:33.200
  • A woman.
  • 00:05:33.210 --> 00:05:34.160
  • Woman, God put it into the hands of a woman.
  • 00:05:36.260 --> 00:05:39.180
  • And here we have a story,
  • 00:05:39.190 --> 00:05:42.130
  • where we are coming up on a boy's club.
  • 00:05:42.140 --> 00:05:45.150
  • (coughs)
  • 00:05:47.200 --> 00:05:49.050
  • A boy's club where they are in the house of a Pharisee.
  • 00:05:49.060 --> 00:05:53.120
  • What would that be in our parallel today?
  • 00:05:55.200 --> 00:05:58.010
  • Churchgoing religious person.
  • 00:05:58.020 --> 00:05:59.290
  • So, they are in the house of a Pharisee,
  • 00:06:01.290 --> 00:06:04.000
  • and Jesus is with the 12 disciples.
  • 00:06:04.010 --> 00:06:06.280
  • But by this time, Jesus is no longer special.
  • 00:06:08.030 --> 00:06:10.290
  • I feel like preaching to somebody right here.
  • 00:06:11.000 --> 00:06:12.270
  • Lean to your neighbor and say,
  • 00:06:12.280 --> 00:06:14.040
  • "This is about to get really, really good.
  • 00:06:14.050 --> 00:06:15.120
  • "This is about to get really good."
  • 00:06:15.130 --> 00:06:17.050
  • Jesus is nothing special.
  • 00:06:17.060 --> 00:06:20.040
  • Jesus has come in the room,
  • 00:06:21.280 --> 00:06:24.140
  • and there are common Hebrew greetings.
  • 00:06:25.190 --> 00:06:28.120
  • If you went to a Hebrew house,
  • 00:06:29.100 --> 00:06:31.020
  • it would be common, listen, common.
  • 00:06:31.030 --> 00:06:33.070
  • I'm not talking about royalty.
  • 00:06:33.080 --> 00:06:34.220
  • I'm talking about common.
  • 00:06:34.230 --> 00:06:36.130
  • It would be common that you would have a basin by the door
  • 00:06:36.140 --> 00:06:40.070
  • and your feet would be cleaned.
  • 00:06:40.080 --> 00:06:41.260
  • It would be common that you would be greeted
  • 00:06:43.010 --> 00:06:45.000
  • with what the Hebrews called a holy kiss.
  • 00:06:45.010 --> 00:06:47.120
  • An appropriate kiss.
  • 00:06:47.130 --> 00:06:48.280
  • But it was a term of endearment, a greeting.
  • 00:06:48.290 --> 00:06:52.120
  • It would be common that you would be offered food.
  • 00:06:52.130 --> 00:06:55.160
  • It would be common that you would be offered
  • 00:06:55.170 --> 00:06:57.270
  • a drink of water.
  • 00:06:57.280 --> 00:06:58.270
  • And if you went to a house
  • 00:06:58.280 --> 00:07:00.080
  • of a little higher social echelon,
  • 00:07:00.090 --> 00:07:02.090
  • even beyond washing the feet,
  • 00:07:02.100 --> 00:07:03.280
  • that your feet would be anointed.
  • 00:07:03.290 --> 00:07:05.180
  • And now Jesus is in this boy's club.
  • 00:07:06.240 --> 00:07:10.270
  • He's in a room where there are no women allowed.
  • 00:07:10.280 --> 00:07:14.110
  • And the boys have grown familiar with Jesus.
  • 00:07:14.120 --> 00:07:17.190
  • They've seen all the miracles.
  • 00:07:18.150 --> 00:07:20.080
  • That's no big deal anymore.
  • 00:07:20.090 --> 00:07:22.050
  • They've seen him feed 5000, that's no big deal.
  • 00:07:22.060 --> 00:07:25.020
  • They've seen him cast out all the devils,
  • 00:07:25.030 --> 00:07:27.050
  • that's no big deal.
  • 00:07:27.060 --> 00:07:28.100
  • They've seen him raise the dead.
  • 00:07:28.110 --> 00:07:30.010
  • So, we've seen everything you've got, Jesus.
  • 00:07:30.020 --> 00:07:33.160
  • No big deal anymore.
  • 00:07:33.170 --> 00:07:34.280
  • So Jesus is now just walking into a house,
  • 00:07:34.290 --> 00:07:37.280
  • and not only is he not getting the greeting of a king,
  • 00:07:37.290 --> 00:07:41.040
  • not only is he not getting the greeting of the son of God,
  • 00:07:41.050 --> 00:07:44.010
  • he's not even getting the greeting of a common Jew.
  • 00:07:44.020 --> 00:07:47.150
  • And so, when God can come to church,
  • 00:07:50.040 --> 00:07:53.240
  • and everybody's familiar,
  • 00:07:55.290 --> 00:07:58.110
  • when you just do what you've been doing for 20 years,
  • 00:08:00.120 --> 00:08:03.230
  • when you're just looking at your watch
  • 00:08:04.260 --> 00:08:06.260
  • waiting for it to be over.
  • 00:08:06.270 --> 00:08:08.060
  • Oh, come on, look up at me!
  • 00:08:08.070 --> 00:08:09.140
  • I know this is tough, but we got to go here!
  • 00:08:09.150 --> 00:08:11.210
  • This woman has come into a room,
  • 00:08:12.180 --> 00:08:15.090
  • where Jesus is no longer special,
  • 00:08:15.100 --> 00:08:17.230
  • and she is about to shift an atmosphere,
  • 00:08:19.030 --> 00:08:22.110
  • and she is about to shame the boy's club.
  • 00:08:22.120 --> 00:08:25.030
  • (audience cheers and applauds)
  • 00:08:25.040 --> 00:08:26.160
  • Because Jesus is now not only not the son of God,
  • 00:08:26.170 --> 00:08:29.130
  • he's not even getting the common greeting
  • 00:08:29.140 --> 00:08:31.200
  • of an Israelite coming through the door.
  • 00:08:31.210 --> 00:08:34.110
  • And I want you to know something.
  • 00:08:34.120 --> 00:08:35.190
  • When Jesus can come to church,
  • 00:08:35.200 --> 00:08:37.160
  • and everybody's so saved
  • 00:08:37.170 --> 00:08:39.220
  • that you don't have to clap no more,
  • 00:08:39.230 --> 00:08:41.230
  • and you are so saved that you don't have to praise,
  • 00:08:41.240 --> 00:08:44.260
  • and you are so saved you can roll your eyes until it's over,
  • 00:08:44.270 --> 00:08:48.140
  • and you are so saved
  • 00:08:48.150 --> 00:08:50.070
  • that you can just sashay in when you want,
  • 00:08:50.080 --> 00:08:52.100
  • and leave when you want,
  • 00:08:52.110 --> 00:08:53.240
  • and there is no longer any passion towards you about God,
  • 00:08:53.250 --> 00:08:57.040
  • and there's no longer any passion
  • 00:08:57.050 --> 00:08:59.000
  • and approach in your worship or expression of worship,
  • 00:08:59.010 --> 00:09:02.020
  • I want you to know God will leave the church.
  • 00:09:02.030 --> 00:09:05.000
  • And he'll go out, and he'll get the homeless.
  • 00:09:05.010 --> 00:09:07.190
  • He'll go out into the gutter,
  • 00:09:07.200 --> 00:09:09.100
  • and he will get the heroin addict off the street
  • 00:09:09.110 --> 00:09:12.070
  • and he'll go down as low as he's got to go.
  • 00:09:12.080 --> 00:09:14.270
  • Why?
  • 00:09:14.280 --> 00:09:16.040
  • Because those who've been forgiven little,
  • 00:09:16.050 --> 00:09:18.030
  • they love little.
  • 00:09:18.040 --> 00:09:19.090
  • And sometimes in church, we think we so saved
  • 00:09:19.100 --> 00:09:22.060
  • that we don't really need a lot of grace and mercy anymore.
  • 00:09:22.070 --> 00:09:25.070
  • So God will go get the people who need a lot of grace,
  • 00:09:25.080 --> 00:09:28.250
  • and they get the people who need a lot of mercy,
  • 00:09:28.260 --> 00:09:31.090
  • and he reaches down to to a low place,
  • 00:09:31.100 --> 00:09:33.190
  • and pulls them up to a high place.
  • 00:09:33.200 --> 00:09:36.030
  • And then they come in to the house of God,
  • 00:09:36.040 --> 00:09:38.250
  • and they extravagantly praise,
  • 00:09:38.260 --> 00:09:40.280
  • and extravagantly worship.
  • 00:09:40.290 --> 00:09:42.180
  • Why?
  • 00:09:42.190 --> 00:09:44.010
  • Because when they're forgiven much, they love much.
  • 00:09:44.020 --> 00:09:46.040
  • What are you saying, Pastor?
  • 00:09:46.050 --> 00:09:47.260
  • I'm saying away with the familiarity.
  • 00:09:47.270 --> 00:09:51.070
  • It's time to court Jesus again, like the day you met him.
  • 00:09:51.080 --> 00:09:54.290
  • Even David said, "Let me return to the joy
  • 00:09:55.000 --> 00:09:58.150
  • "of my salvation.
  • 00:09:58.160 --> 00:10:00.060
  • "Take me back to the day when I first met you.
  • 00:10:00.070 --> 00:10:03.190
  • "Let me feel what I felt.
  • 00:10:03.200 --> 00:10:05.150
  • "Let me sing songs like I used to sing.
  • 00:10:05.160 --> 00:10:08.090
  • "Let me cry like I used to cry.
  • 00:10:08.100 --> 00:10:10.200
  • "Let me jump like I used to jump.
  • 00:10:10.210 --> 00:10:13.090
  • "Let me come early, and leave late.
  • 00:10:13.100 --> 00:10:15.210
  • "And let me be sad when they close the doors,
  • 00:10:15.220 --> 00:10:18.120
  • "and say church is over."
  • 00:10:18.130 --> 00:10:20.040
  • Does anybody want to be a part
  • 00:10:20.050 --> 00:10:22.090
  • of a revolutionary move of God,
  • 00:10:22.100 --> 00:10:24.260
  • where we're no longer religious and stoic,
  • 00:10:24.270 --> 00:10:27.180
  • and clouds with no water,
  • 00:10:27.190 --> 00:10:29.130
  • but be something where the spirit of God is hovering,
  • 00:10:29.140 --> 00:10:32.120
  • and all we want to do is worship?
  • 00:10:32.130 --> 00:10:35.050
  • (audience cheers)
  • 00:10:35.060 --> 00:10:36.090
  • Oh, somebody!
  • 00:10:36.100 --> 00:10:38.000
  • Let me know that you're with me by shouting hallelujah!
  • 00:10:38.010 --> 00:10:41.090
  • (audience shouts)
  • 00:10:41.100 --> 00:10:42.250
  • - Oh!
  • 00:10:42.260 --> 00:10:44.140
  • Bless his holy name in this place.
  • 00:10:44.150 --> 00:10:46.230
  • Bless his holy name in this place.
  • 00:10:46.240 --> 00:10:49.020
  • I feel something breaking, and I feel something turning,
  • 00:10:49.030 --> 00:10:52.020
  • and I feel like there's a group of people who say,
  • 00:10:52.030 --> 00:10:54.130
  • "I'm tired of being a part of dry bones,
  • 00:10:54.140 --> 00:10:58.010
  • "but I'm ready to live again."
  • 00:10:58.020 --> 00:11:00.130
  • It starts with your worship life.
  • 00:11:00.140 --> 00:11:03.230
  • Somebody shout amen.
  • 00:11:03.240 --> 00:11:05.180

  • - To be in step with Heaven,
  • 00:11:15.000 --> 00:11:16.130
  • sometimes I got to be out of step with what's going on here.
  • 00:11:16.140 --> 00:11:19.100
  • Because God takes the foolish things of the world
  • 00:11:19.110 --> 00:11:22.070
  • to confound the wise,
  • 00:11:22.080 --> 00:11:23.250

  • - The foolishness of men is the wisdom of God,
  • 00:11:31.110 --> 00:11:34.230
  • and I may never have another opportunity

  • - There's two different accounts of Jesus
  • 00:12:08.090 --> 00:12:11.100
  • having a woman in a room like this.
  • 00:12:11.110 --> 00:12:13.020
  • Most do not think it was the same account,
  • 00:12:13.030 --> 00:12:15.060
  • a few think it was.
  • 00:12:15.070 --> 00:12:16.250
  • (breathes heavily)
  • 00:12:16.260 --> 00:12:19.180
  • Matthew 26 bears out an encounter.
  • 00:12:19.190 --> 00:12:22.150
  • Mark Chapter 14 bears out an encounter,
  • 00:12:22.160 --> 00:12:24.160
  • and I'm reading the one out of Luke 7.
  • 00:12:24.170 --> 00:12:27.070
  • The encounter in Mark 14.
  • 00:12:27.080 --> 00:12:29.030
  • Says that the box was broken.
  • 00:12:30.270 --> 00:12:34.180
  • (clears throat)
  • 00:12:37.180 --> 00:12:39.050
  • The box was broken.
  • 00:12:39.060 --> 00:12:40.110
  • That box being broken is a very, very powerful truth,
  • 00:12:44.080 --> 00:12:48.180
  • hidden in that.
  • 00:12:48.190 --> 00:12:49.180
  • The truth is this.
  • 00:12:51.120 --> 00:12:52.240
  • We like to pour our worship.
  • 00:12:54.040 --> 00:12:56.020
  • But her love could not be contained.
  • 00:12:58.020 --> 00:13:00.200
  • When you break a container,
  • 00:13:02.230 --> 00:13:04.190
  • you can no longer control how it's poured.
  • 00:13:04.200 --> 00:13:07.120
  • (audience cheers and applauds)
  • 00:13:07.130 --> 00:13:11.170
  • When the container is in place,
  • 00:13:11.180 --> 00:13:14.130
  • I can control the flow.
  • 00:13:14.140 --> 00:13:16.140
  • I feel the presence of God.
  • 00:13:17.110 --> 00:13:18.220
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:13:20.010 --> 00:13:20.280
  • (audience cheers and applauds)
  • 00:13:20.290 --> 00:13:23.280
  • She just smashes it.
  • 00:13:23.290 --> 00:13:25.130
  • Not only does she smash it,
  • 00:13:28.260 --> 00:13:31.290
  • most historians believe when they said she was a sinner,
  • 00:13:33.130 --> 00:13:37.040
  • they were trying to be kind
  • 00:13:37.050 --> 00:13:38.180
  • that she was a prostitute.
  • 00:13:40.130 --> 00:13:41.260
  • And the Bible says that that flask
  • 00:13:45.030 --> 00:13:47.150
  • was full of precious oil.
  • 00:13:47.160 --> 00:13:49.230
  • A year's wage.
  • 00:13:51.130 --> 00:13:53.070
  • Do you know what she was doing?
  • 00:13:57.170 --> 00:13:59.030
  • She brought her past in the room.
  • 00:14:00.240 --> 00:14:04.000
  • Everything that I did in sin, to get it in this flask.
  • 00:14:06.210 --> 00:14:11.130
  • I lay at your feet, and I turn my pain into worship,
  • 00:14:13.030 --> 00:14:18.030
  • and I break my box.
  • 00:14:18.250 --> 00:14:20.020
  • (audience cheers and applauds)
  • 00:14:20.030 --> 00:14:22.190
  • Because now that I'm in your presence,
  • 00:14:22.200 --> 00:14:25.020
  • the level of grace and mercy that I'm being touched with
  • 00:14:26.260 --> 00:14:30.010
  • to forgive me of the life that I've lived.
  • 00:14:30.020 --> 00:14:32.280
  • See, some of you may have forgotten
  • 00:14:32.290 --> 00:14:35.020
  • where he had to go get you.
  • 00:14:35.030 --> 00:14:36.150
  • Maybe a good worship service would not start with a song.
  • 00:14:38.040 --> 00:14:41.010
  • Maybe a good worship service
  • 00:14:41.020 --> 00:14:42.210
  • would start with remembering everything
  • 00:14:42.220 --> 00:14:44.230
  • he rescued you out of,
  • 00:14:44.240 --> 00:14:46.070
  • and how far he had to reach to pull you
  • 00:14:46.080 --> 00:14:48.070
  • to the place you are just right now.
  • 00:14:48.080 --> 00:14:50.000
  • (audience applauds)
  • 00:14:50.010 --> 00:14:53.000
  • And she was fully aware of the level of forgiveness
  • 00:14:53.010 --> 00:14:57.190
  • that it would take to wipe her slate clean.
  • 00:14:57.200 --> 00:15:00.140
  • And she burst into the boy's club.
  • 00:15:02.070 --> 00:15:05.000
  • And you can hear the whispers.
  • 00:15:06.120 --> 00:15:08.160
  • Because her name is familiar in the boy's club.
  • 00:15:10.030 --> 00:15:13.060
  • She is known.
  • 00:15:14.070 --> 00:15:15.160
  • Some of them may have known her better than others.
  • 00:15:16.280 --> 00:15:19.020
  • Come on, let's just talk and get real.
  • 00:15:19.030 --> 00:15:21.190
  • Even the Pharisee in the house said,
  • 00:15:21.200 --> 00:15:24.120
  • "She's a sinner."
  • 00:15:24.130 --> 00:15:25.180
  • So evidently, the woman had a reputation
  • 00:15:25.190 --> 00:15:29.010
  • that the churchgoer even knew who she was.
  • 00:15:29.020 --> 00:15:31.190
  • And she walks into the boy's club,
  • 00:15:33.240 --> 00:15:36.220
  • and she walks right by each person.
  • 00:15:36.230 --> 00:15:39.220
  • And although they are whispering to themselves,
  • 00:15:39.230 --> 00:15:42.120
  • "If Jesus really were such a prophetic man,
  • 00:15:42.130 --> 00:15:45.150
  • "he'd know who was touching him."
  • 00:15:45.160 --> 00:15:47.130
  • Jesus knew exactly who she was.
  • 00:15:47.140 --> 00:15:49.170
  • That's why he let her come.
  • 00:15:49.180 --> 00:15:51.220
  • Why?
  • 00:15:51.230 --> 00:15:53.070
  • Because Jesus said, "When the church won't worship me,
  • 00:15:53.080 --> 00:15:55.030
  • "I'll go to the gutter and let those people worship me,
  • 00:15:55.040 --> 00:15:58.080
  • "because I'm going to go find somebody
  • 00:15:58.090 --> 00:16:00.280
  • "who appreciates grace again.
  • 00:16:00.290 --> 00:16:03.130
  • "And those who've been forgiven much, love much."
  • 00:16:03.140 --> 00:16:06.090
  • And she came, and she broke it.
  • 00:16:06.100 --> 00:16:08.140
  • The next thing I want to tell you is,
  • 00:16:08.150 --> 00:16:10.010
  • and I'm not doing one, two, three,
  • 00:16:10.020 --> 00:16:11.080
  • I'm just building truths in the story,
  • 00:16:11.090 --> 00:16:13.140
  • is that in another account, in Mark 26,
  • 00:16:13.150 --> 00:16:16.070
  • the Bible says that the fragrance filled.
  • 00:16:16.080 --> 00:16:19.240
  • (audience cheers and applauds)
  • 00:16:19.250 --> 00:16:20.290
  • Ahh!
  • 00:16:21.000 --> 00:16:22.020
  • The fragrance filled the room.
  • 00:16:23.040 --> 00:16:25.110
  • Touch your neighbor and say,
  • 00:16:25.120 --> 00:16:26.240
  • "Your worship needs to fill the place."
  • 00:16:26.250 --> 00:16:29.000
  • It needs to fill the place, it needs to fill the place.
  • 00:16:29.010 --> 00:16:32.050
  • It was extravagant worship.
  • 00:16:32.060 --> 00:16:34.080
  • Said that her worship filled the room.
  • 00:16:37.130 --> 00:16:39.130
  • (coughs)
  • 00:16:40.140 --> 00:16:41.250
  • I want you to look at it this way;
  • 00:16:41.260 --> 00:16:44.010
  • no worship conference, no rehearsal,
  • 00:16:44.020 --> 00:16:47.240
  • no praise and worship training, no vocal skills,
  • 00:16:49.060 --> 00:16:52.170
  • and not a musician,
  • 00:16:52.180 --> 00:16:54.050
  • because worship is none of those things.
  • 00:16:54.060 --> 00:16:56.070
  • Those are things that carry worship.
  • 00:16:57.110 --> 00:16:59.210
  • Those are things that accommodate worship.
  • 00:16:59.220 --> 00:17:02.040
  • Those are worship containers.
  • 00:17:02.050 --> 00:17:04.110
  • But worship is something that comes out of your heart,
  • 00:17:06.010 --> 00:17:09.100
  • because you've been touched by God's heart.
  • 00:17:09.110 --> 00:17:12.030
  • And when it flows beautifully, and it flows passionately,
  • 00:17:12.040 --> 00:17:15.050
  • it changes the atmosphere that you're in.
  • 00:17:15.060 --> 00:17:17.130
  • I can go into churches that are dead, as one man,
  • 00:17:20.000 --> 00:17:24.180
  • and you give me 30 to 40 minutes
  • 00:17:24.190 --> 00:17:26.240
  • for them to see how extravagantly I worship God,
  • 00:17:26.250 --> 00:17:30.180
  • and how intensely and passionately I love God,
  • 00:17:30.190 --> 00:17:33.160
  • and even in the matter of a minute,
  • 00:17:33.170 --> 00:17:35.100
  • you can begin to see thousands of people
  • 00:17:35.110 --> 00:17:37.230
  • begin to shift, and begin to move in a direction.
  • 00:17:37.240 --> 00:17:40.200
  • Why?
  • 00:17:40.210 --> 00:17:41.180
  • Because the worship of one
  • 00:17:41.190 --> 00:17:43.020
  • begins to affect everybody else.
  • 00:17:43.030 --> 00:17:45.080
  • You don't understand how powerful your worship is.
  • 00:17:45.090 --> 00:17:48.080
  • Your worship is reproductive.
  • 00:17:48.090 --> 00:17:50.130
  • The Bible says at midnight,
  • 00:17:50.140 --> 00:17:51.290
  • when Paul and Silas began to praise,
  • 00:17:52.000 --> 00:17:54.090
  • that the gates of the jail that they were in
  • 00:17:54.100 --> 00:17:56.270
  • began to swing open.
  • 00:17:56.280 --> 00:17:58.080
  • And then, the Bible says
  • 00:17:58.090 --> 00:17:59.220
  • that the gates of every other prisoner
  • 00:17:59.230 --> 00:18:01.220
  • began to swing open.
  • 00:18:01.230 --> 00:18:03.070
  • And not just Paul and Silas were set free,
  • 00:18:03.080 --> 00:18:05.270
  • but everybody else that was jailed was set free.
  • 00:18:05.280 --> 00:18:08.160
  • Why?
  • 00:18:08.170 --> 00:18:10.000
  • Because your praise and your worship is reproductive.
  • 00:18:10.010 --> 00:18:12.190
  • When Paul and Silas prayed, they were set free,
  • 00:18:12.200 --> 00:18:15.240
  • And everybody connected to them was set free.
  • 00:18:15.250 --> 00:18:18.260
  • The same thing is with worship.
  • 00:18:18.270 --> 00:18:20.170
  • The worship filled the whole room.
  • 00:18:20.180 --> 00:18:22.110
  • The worship had a reproductive element.
  • 00:18:22.120 --> 00:18:24.200
  • And you can go into a house that is depressed, and worship.
  • 00:18:24.210 --> 00:18:28.180
  • You can go into a marriage that is fighting,
  • 00:18:28.190 --> 00:18:31.000
  • and as soon as husband goes to work,
  • 00:18:31.010 --> 00:18:33.030
  • you need to begin to fill that house with worship.
  • 00:18:33.040 --> 00:18:35.180
  • You can go to a son's room, that is rebellious,
  • 00:18:35.190 --> 00:18:38.120
  • and when he turns his radio off and goes to school,
  • 00:18:38.130 --> 00:18:41.070
  • you need to go in there and turn worship on,
  • 00:18:41.080 --> 00:18:43.190
  • because there is no way to begin to ignore
  • 00:18:43.200 --> 00:18:47.010
  • the power of worship when it fills a room.
  • 00:18:47.020 --> 00:18:49.240
  • And this woman began to take a boy's club that was familiar,
  • 00:18:49.250 --> 00:18:54.000
  • and wouldn't even anoint his head,
  • 00:18:54.010 --> 00:18:55.220
  • wouldn't even wash his feet.
  • 00:18:55.230 --> 00:18:57.150
  • and she began to extravagantly worship him.
  • 00:18:57.160 --> 00:19:00.210
  • And that woman came into that room and put on a clinic,
  • 00:19:00.220 --> 00:19:04.140
  • and shamed a bunch of Pharisees
  • 00:19:04.150 --> 00:19:06.220
  • who should have been the first to recognize his greatness.
  • 00:19:06.230 --> 00:19:09.250
  • She shamed them by her extravagant worship,
  • 00:19:09.260 --> 00:19:12.260
  • And said, "I'm going to break my box,
  • 00:19:12.270 --> 00:19:14.220
  • "because I am so in love with you,
  • 00:19:14.230 --> 00:19:17.000
  • "I can't pour it, I can't contain it,
  • 00:19:17.010 --> 00:19:19.140
  • "It's just going to spill all over the place."
  • 00:19:19.150 --> 00:19:22.030
  • When is the last time you had such love
  • 00:19:22.040 --> 00:19:25.130
  • that you experienced for God
  • 00:19:25.140 --> 00:19:27.050
  • That your worship could not be contained in an expression,
  • 00:19:27.060 --> 00:19:30.190
  • but you just became un-composed in the presence of God.
  • 00:19:30.200 --> 00:19:34.100
  • I long to see experiences like that in this house.
  • 00:19:34.110 --> 00:19:38.020
  • If you're with me, can you shout amen?
  • 00:19:38.030 --> 00:19:40.180
  • - [Audience Members] Amen!
  • 00:19:40.190 --> 00:19:41.270
  • - Hallelujah!
  • 00:19:41.280 --> 00:19:43.160
  • Tell your neighbor on both sides.
  • 00:19:43.170 --> 00:19:44.250
  • Say, "That's the kind of church I want to go to.
  • 00:19:44.260 --> 00:19:46.110
  • "That's the kind of church I want to go to."
  • 00:19:46.120 --> 00:19:49.030
  • (keyboard and drum music)
  • 00:19:49.040 --> 00:19:50.140
  • Whoo!
  • 00:19:50.150 --> 00:19:51.160
  • (audience cheers and applauds)
  • 00:19:51.170 --> 00:19:52.110
  • Thank you Lord God.
  • 00:19:52.120 --> 00:19:54.060
  • (coughs)
  • 00:19:54.070 --> 00:19:55.070
  • Thank you Lord God.
  • 00:19:55.080 --> 00:19:56.180
  • (soothing electronic music)
  • 00:19:56.190 --> 00:20:00.170
  • She's already been jeered, and sneered,
  • 00:20:00.180 --> 00:20:03.020
  • and talked about in whispers.
  • 00:20:03.030 --> 00:20:05.260
  • But you know what, Peter?
  • 00:20:07.120 --> 00:20:08.100
  • I don't care what you think.
  • 00:20:08.110 --> 00:20:09.180
  • Because I didn't come to see you.
  • 00:20:09.190 --> 00:20:11.110
  • Matthew, John?
  • 00:20:14.130 --> 00:20:16.170
  • I really don't care what you think,
  • 00:20:16.180 --> 00:20:17.230
  • because I didn't come to see you either.
  • 00:20:17.240 --> 00:20:19.150
  • So your opinions do not affect me right now,
  • 00:20:21.070 --> 00:20:24.090
  • because I'm not here to see any of y'all.
  • 00:20:24.100 --> 00:20:26.110
  • I come for him.
  • 00:20:29.240 --> 00:20:31.020
  • (soothing guitar chords)
  • 00:20:31.030 --> 00:20:34.160
  • Now they're talking, they're saying,
  • 00:20:38.000 --> 00:20:39.130
  • "She's a sinner." They're being nice.
  • 00:20:39.140 --> 00:20:42.060
  • "Most think she's a prostitute.
  • 00:20:42.070 --> 00:20:43.220
  • "She's got a year's wage in a flask. They're saying
  • 00:20:43.230 --> 00:20:48.130
  • "she's wasteful."
  • 00:20:48.140 --> 00:20:49.230
  • They know how she had to earn it.
  • 00:20:50.290 --> 00:20:52.080
  • Then she walks up to him, and lets down her hair.
  • 00:20:56.110 --> 00:21:01.100
  • Now she has crossed the line.
  • 00:21:06.230 --> 00:21:08.220
  • Because not just in Biblical times,
  • 00:21:11.070 --> 00:21:13.070
  • but even to a certain point in our culture today,
  • 00:21:13.080 --> 00:21:17.100
  • letting down the hair is a sign that intimacy has begun.
  • 00:21:20.090 --> 00:21:25.090
  • And they could have walked up to her, and say,
  • 00:21:36.040 --> 00:21:37.280
  • "How dare you let down your hair
  • 00:21:37.290 --> 00:21:40.170
  • "in front of him."
  • 00:21:43.130 --> 00:21:44.210
  • But if I were her, I would look back at him and say,
  • 00:21:48.170 --> 00:21:50.280
  • "I've let my hair down for so much less.
  • 00:21:50.290 --> 00:21:54.050
  • "How can I not let my hair down in front of the son of God?"
  • 00:21:57.170 --> 00:22:02.160
  • (quietly gasps)
  • 00:22:07.230 --> 00:22:11.020
  • Some of you have given your emotion and your soul
  • 00:22:11.030 --> 00:22:14.200
  • to so much less.
  • 00:22:14.210 --> 00:22:17.050
  • You've given your emotion to a touchdown.
  • 00:22:17.060 --> 00:22:19.280
  • You've given your emotion to a home run.
  • 00:22:22.200 --> 00:22:25.020
  • You've given your emotion to a three-pointer.
  • 00:22:25.030 --> 00:22:27.210
  • You've given your emotion to a hockey puck.
  • 00:22:27.220 --> 00:22:31.100
  • And you can't come in the house of God
  • 00:22:31.110 --> 00:22:33.130
  • and give your emotion to the savior of the world?
  • 00:22:33.140 --> 00:22:37.000
  • (audience cheers and applauds)
  • 00:22:37.010 --> 00:22:40.280
  • I told you when I started this message
  • 00:22:46.110 --> 00:22:48.160
  • a little bit too long ago,
  • 00:22:49.200 --> 00:22:51.040
  • worship is acquisition.
  • 00:22:52.130 --> 00:22:54.060
  • She never asked for forgiveness.
  • 00:22:56.050 --> 00:22:58.080
  • But after she worshiped,
  • 00:23:02.020 --> 00:23:03.130
  • he said, "You're forgiven."
  • 00:23:03.140 --> 00:23:04.230
  • (chuckles)
  • 00:23:04.240 --> 00:23:05.210
  • (audience cheers and applauds)
  • 00:23:05.220 --> 00:23:06.130
  • (laughs)
  • 00:23:06.140 --> 00:23:09.020
  • The past is gone,
  • 00:23:09.030 --> 00:23:10.180
  • and your future has been apprehended.
  • 00:23:12.000 --> 00:23:14.050
  • Because worship is acquisition.
  • 00:23:16.240 --> 00:23:18.250
  • (upbeat music)
  • 00:23:20.090 --> 00:23:22.270
  • - You know what? This was one of
  • 00:23:50.090 --> 00:23:51.170
  • my favorite teaching series.
  • 00:23:51.180 --> 00:23:53.170
  • I've taught it in so many different ways,
  • 00:23:53.180 --> 00:23:55.070
  • so many different times over the years,
  • 00:23:55.080 --> 00:23:57.130
  • but you know what?
  • 00:23:57.140 --> 00:23:58.200
  • My praise and worship life never gets old.
  • 00:23:58.210 --> 00:24:00.140
  • It's just so fresh.
  • 00:24:00.150 --> 00:24:01.220
  • Not because I know a bunch of principles,
  • 00:24:01.230 --> 00:24:03.280
  • But because of the presence of God,
  • 00:24:03.290 --> 00:24:05.290
  • and that relationship that I sense
  • 00:24:06.000 --> 00:24:08.080
  • every time I call on His name.
  • 00:24:08.090 --> 00:24:10.220
  • I hope that you get that same experience
  • 00:24:10.230 --> 00:24:12.280
  • out of this teaching,
  • 00:24:12.290 --> 00:24:14.030
  • and somehow, it'll bring you closer to God
  • 00:24:14.040 --> 00:24:16.160
  • in your praise and worship life.
  • 00:24:16.170 --> 00:24:18.110
  • I hope that you'll just stay with me a few minutes,
  • 00:24:18.120 --> 00:24:20.000
  • let me tell you all the wonderful things going on.
  • 00:24:20.010 --> 00:24:22.140
  • Any series like this that you hear,
  • 00:24:22.150 --> 00:24:24.120
  • I preach in series, so this is not a standalone.
  • 00:24:24.130 --> 00:24:27.090
  • It is part of a greater teaching.
  • 00:24:27.100 --> 00:24:29.000
  • If you say, "You know what?
  • 00:24:29.010 --> 00:24:30.070
  • "I want to hear that whole thing."
  • 00:24:30.080 --> 00:24:31.210
  • You have two options.
  • 00:24:31.220 --> 00:24:33.030
  • You can download the Ron Carpenter App
  • 00:24:33.040 --> 00:24:35.040
  • and go through the vault,
  • 00:24:35.050 --> 00:24:36.060
  • which has a subscription of basically
  • 00:24:36.070 --> 00:24:38.220
  • my entire library of teaching,
  • 00:24:38.230 --> 00:24:41.010
  • or you can go into our online bookstore,
  • 00:24:41.020 --> 00:24:43.150
  • and all these things are available to you.
  • 00:24:43.160 --> 00:24:45.160
  • Just let us know, and we'll do whatever we can
  • 00:24:45.170 --> 00:24:47.130
  • to try to serve you in that area.
  • 00:24:47.140 --> 00:24:49.020
  • Also, I want to invite you to join me on a daily basis,
  • 00:24:49.030 --> 00:24:51.060
  • on Twitter, and Facebook, and Instagram.
  • 00:24:51.070 --> 00:24:53.170
  • I mean, it's clicks.
  • 00:24:53.180 --> 00:24:54.270
  • You can ask for our morning devotional
  • 00:24:54.280 --> 00:24:56.190
  • That gets sent out every morning.
  • 00:24:56.200 --> 00:24:58.130
  • A little 90 second pep talk to start your day.
  • 00:24:58.140 --> 00:25:01.100
  • And all the time, sometimes just prayer.
  • 00:25:01.110 --> 00:25:03.190
  • Just praying with you sometime.
  • 00:25:03.200 --> 00:25:05.050
  • God will actually just kind of give me a prophetic word
  • 00:25:05.060 --> 00:25:07.100
  • that I need to speak in to those that are connected to me,
  • 00:25:07.110 --> 00:25:09.220
  • and it can really be a neat thing.
  • 00:25:09.230 --> 00:25:11.070
  • And I invite you, if you're not following, to do that,
  • 00:25:11.080 --> 00:25:13.250
  • because we'd like to deepen our relationship with you.
  • 00:25:13.260 --> 00:25:16.170
  • And not only that, but this brings me to the point
  • 00:25:16.180 --> 00:25:18.150
  • Where I wanna thank you, and ask you for continued support.
  • 00:25:18.160 --> 00:25:22.040
  • You know, it's been a long journey from 1998
  • 00:25:22.050 --> 00:25:24.210
  • to a camcorder in the back of a metal building,
  • 00:25:24.220 --> 00:25:27.210
  • to allowing us to be able to speak to the whole globe.
  • 00:25:27.220 --> 00:25:30.080
  • God has been good to us,
  • 00:25:30.090 --> 00:25:31.200
  • but he's spoken to people's hearts like yours
  • 00:25:31.210 --> 00:25:33.150
  • to help us do it.
  • 00:25:33.160 --> 00:25:35.000
  • And for that, I'm grateful, and I thank you for that.
  • 00:25:35.010 --> 00:25:37.100
  • But we always have a next.
  • 00:25:37.110 --> 00:25:39.000
  • We always have a next.
  • 00:25:39.010 --> 00:25:40.140
  • Until the whole earth is filled with the glory of the Lord,
  • 00:25:40.150 --> 00:25:43.030
  • we've got a mission to do.
  • 00:25:43.040 --> 00:25:44.180
  • And I'd ask you to continue in your prayerful support,
  • 00:25:44.190 --> 00:25:47.220
  • And in your financial support.
  • 00:25:47.230 --> 00:25:49.110
  • And maybe you've been watching, and you've been blessed,
  • 00:25:49.120 --> 00:25:51.220
  • But you've never given to a ministry online,
  • 00:25:51.230 --> 00:25:54.160
  • or a TV ministry.
  • 00:25:54.170 --> 00:25:56.010
  • Maybe, I don't know how to or I don't know if I should or not.
  • 00:25:56.020 --> 00:26:00.240
  • As you contemplate it, whether it be a one-time gift,
  • 00:26:00.250 --> 00:26:04.000
  • Or whether you want to become a part of the family
  • 00:26:04.010 --> 00:26:05.250
  • and be a monthly giver,
  • 00:26:05.260 --> 00:26:07.020
  • let me tell you what, we have a gift for you.
  • 00:26:07.030 --> 00:26:08.240
  • Because we want to show you that we're givers,
  • 00:26:08.250 --> 00:26:10.240
  • And that we place value on those
  • 00:26:10.250 --> 00:26:13.000
  • that connect with us.
  • 00:26:13.010 --> 00:26:14.100
  • So for your first-time gift of any amount,
  • 00:26:14.110 --> 00:26:16.280
  • We want to send this to you to say thank you
  • 00:26:16.290 --> 00:26:19.230
  • for helping us do what we do.
  • 00:26:19.240 --> 00:26:21.110
  • And if you want to be a covenant partner even more so
  • 00:26:21.120 --> 00:26:24.020
  • on an ongoing basis as we grow
  • 00:26:24.030 --> 00:26:26.050
  • and carry this message to the whole world.
  • 00:26:26.060 --> 00:26:28.070
