  • JOHN HAGEE MINISTRIES HAS BEEN
  • 00:00:00.220 --> 00:00:02.030
  • REACHING OUT TO MILLIONS
  • 00:00:02.030 --> 00:00:03.120
  • OF PEOPLE WORLDWIDE EVERY WEEK,
  • 00:00:03.120 --> 00:00:06.110
  • DELIVERING ALL THE GOSPEL

  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: TONIGHT WE
  • 00:00:21.030 --> 00:00:22.000
  • BEGIN A SERIES ON RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:00:22.000 --> 00:00:23.180
  • AND WE BEGIN BY LOOKING AT THE
  • 00:00:23.180 --> 00:00:25.100
  • RELATIONSHIP OF MARRIAGE.
  • 00:00:25.100 --> 00:00:27.130
  • WE'RE GOING TO TAKE A DIFFERENT
  • 00:00:27.130 --> 00:00:28.140
  • LOOK AT DIFFERENT RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:00:28.140 --> 00:00:30.070
  • EACH AND EVERY SUNDAY NIGHT FOR
  • 00:00:30.070 --> 00:00:31.130
  • THE NEXT THREE SUNDAY NIGHTS,
  • 00:00:31.130 --> 00:00:32.270
  • BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:00:33.110 --> 00:00:36.110
  • PSALM 133 IS A POWERFUL VERSE.
  • 00:00:36.110 --> 00:00:38.110
  • IT SAYS: BEHOLD HOW BLESSED
  • 00:00:38.110 --> 00:00:39.220
  • AND GOOD IT IS FOR BRETHREN TO
  • 00:00:39.220 --> 00:00:41.050
  • DWELL TOGETHER IN UNITY.
  • 00:00:41.050 --> 00:00:44.020
  • BECAUSE ANY TIME GOD FINDS
  • 00:00:44.020 --> 00:00:45.150
  • UNITY, THAT CHAPTER REMINDS US
  • 00:00:45.150 --> 00:00:47.270
  • THAT HE COMMANDS A BLESSING.
  • 00:00:47.270 --> 00:00:50.110
  • HOW MANY OF YOU WOULD LIKE GOD
  • 00:00:50.110 --> 00:00:51.140
  • TO COMMAND THE BLESSING ON YOUR
  • 00:00:51.140 --> 00:00:53.020
  • LIFE?
  • 00:00:53.020 --> 00:00:54.090
  • THEN YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO
  • 00:00:54.090 --> 00:00:55.090
  • LIVE IN UNITY.
  • 00:00:55.090 --> 00:00:56.250
  • "UNITY" DOES NOT MEAN GETTING
  • 00:00:56.250 --> 00:00:58.040
  • YOUR WAY.
  • 00:00:58.040 --> 00:00:59.000
  • "UNITY" SIMPLY MEANS "LIVING
  • 00:00:59.000 --> 00:01:01.010
  • TOGETHER IN AGREEMENT."
  • 00:01:01.010 --> 00:01:03.080
  • AND THIS IS SOMETHING THAT'S
  • 00:01:03.080 --> 00:01:04.080
  • VALUABLE IN EVERY RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:01:04.080 --> 00:01:06.000
  • IN MARRIAGE, IN THE
  • 00:01:06.000 --> 00:01:07.130
  • RELATIONSHIP YOU HAVE WITH YOUR
  • 00:01:07.130 --> 00:01:08.190
  • CHILDREN, IN THE RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:01:08.190 --> 00:01:10.210
  • YOU HAVE WITH YOUR PARENTS,
  • 00:01:10.210 --> 00:01:13.040
  • AND IN THE RELATIONSHIP WE
  • 00:01:13.040 --> 00:01:14.080
  • HAVE WITH ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:01:14.080 --> 00:01:15.080
  • NEXT SUNDAY NIGHT, WE'RE GOING
  • 00:01:15.080 --> 00:01:16.090
  • TO LOOK AT THE RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:01:16.090 --> 00:01:17.080
  • BETWEEN CHILDREN AND PARENTS.
  • 00:01:17.080 --> 00:01:19.140
  • AND THEN THE FINAL SUNDAY
  • 00:01:19.140 --> 00:01:20.080
  • NIGHT, WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT
  • 00:01:20.080 --> 00:01:21.070
  • OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH OTHERS IN
  • 00:01:21.070 --> 00:01:22.170
  • THE BODY OF CHRIST.
  • 00:01:22.170 --> 00:01:23.140
  • WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT FOUR
  • 00:01:23.140 --> 00:01:24.200
  • GENERATIONS THAT ARE ADULTS
  • 00:01:24.200 --> 00:01:27.060
  • THESE DAYS.
  • 00:01:27.060 --> 00:01:28.020
  • THESE FOUR GENERATIONS ARE
  • 00:01:28.020 --> 00:01:29.070
  • CALLED "THE MATURES."
  • 00:01:29.070 --> 00:01:31.000
  • THOSE ARE INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE
  • 00:01:31.000 --> 00:01:32.070
  • BORN BEFORE 1945.
  • 00:01:32.070 --> 00:01:34.030
  • DID YOU KNOW YOU WERE MATURE
  • 00:01:34.030 --> 00:01:35.110
  • NOW IF YOU'RE BORN BEFORE 1945?
  • 00:01:35.110 --> 00:01:38.010
  • HOW MANY MATURES ARE IN OUR
  • 00:01:38.010 --> 00:01:39.150
  • CONGREGATION?
  • 00:01:39.150 --> 00:01:41.060
  • ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:01:41.060 --> 00:01:41.260
  • WE'VE GOT SOME MATURES.
  • 00:01:41.260 --> 00:01:43.160
  • WE'VE GOT BABY BOOMERS.
  • 00:01:43.160 --> 00:01:44.210
  • THAT'S BETWEEN '45 AND '65.
  • 00:01:44.210 --> 00:01:46.230
  • HOW MANY BOOMERS ARE OUT THERE?
  • 00:01:46.230 --> 00:01:48.270
  • THEN WE'VE GOT FROM '65 TO '79,
  • 00:01:49.210 --> 00:01:52.210
  • "GENERATION "X."
  • 00:01:52.210 --> 00:01:54.030
  • HOW MANY GENERATION X'ERS ARE
  • 00:01:54.030 --> 00:01:55.140
  • OUT THERE?
  • 00:01:55.140 --> 00:01:56.140
  • "GENERATION X'ERS" ARE
  • 00:01:56.140 --> 00:01:57.230
  • INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE KNOWN TO BE
  • 00:01:57.230 --> 00:01:59.260
  • THE MOST CYNICAL, UNHAPPY, AND
  • 00:01:59.260 --> 00:02:02.060
  • DISCONTENTED ON THE FACE OF
  • 00:02:02.060 --> 00:02:03.290
  • EARTH.
  • 00:02:03.290 --> 00:02:04.180
  • I'M BORN IN '78, SO I'M WITH
  • 00:02:04.180 --> 00:02:06.050
  • YOU.
  • 00:02:06.050 --> 00:02:06.190
  • DON'T WORRY; I'M NOT TALKING
  • 00:02:06.190 --> 00:02:07.190
  • ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:02:07.190 --> 00:02:08.080
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE YOU
  • 00:02:08.080 --> 00:02:09.020
  • KNOW.
  • 00:02:09.020 --> 00:02:10.050
  • THAT'S GEN X.
  • 00:02:10.050 --> 00:02:11.110
  • AND THEN THERE'S MILLENNIALS.
  • 00:02:11.110 --> 00:02:12.190
  • ANYBODY BORN AFTER '79?
  • 00:02:12.190 --> 00:02:14.120
  • HOW MANY OF YOU ARE
  • 00:02:14.120 --> 00:02:15.100
  • MILLENNIALS?
  • 00:02:15.100 --> 00:02:16.070
  • "MILLENNIALS" ARE PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:02:16.070 --> 00:02:17.120
  • WERE GIVEN 11TH PLACE RIBBONS
  • 00:02:17.120 --> 00:02:19.180
  • AT SWIM MEETS.
  • 00:02:19.180 --> 00:02:21.040
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:02:21.040 --> 00:02:23.050
  • AND SO HERE ON THIS END OF THE
  • 00:02:23.080 --> 00:02:26.080
  • SPECTRUM, WE HAVE YOUNG PEOPLE,
  • 00:02:26.080 --> 00:02:27.250
  • WHO'VE BEEN TOLD THAT THEY'RE
  • 00:02:27.250 --> 00:02:28.270
  • NOTHING BUT SPECIAL.
  • 00:02:28.270 --> 00:02:30.270
  • AND ON THIS END OF THE
  • 00:02:30.270 --> 00:02:31.160
  • SPECTRUM, WE HAVE PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:02:31.160 --> 00:02:32.210
  • HEARD IT LIKE THIS; WHAT?
  • 00:02:32.210 --> 00:02:33.290
  • YOU THINK YOU'RE SPECIAL?
  • 00:02:33.290 --> 00:02:36.050
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:02:36.050 --> 00:02:37.100
  • AND IN ORDER FOR US TO LIVE
  • 00:02:37.100 --> 00:02:39.290
  • TOGETHER AND TO RECEIVE THE
  • 00:02:39.290 --> 00:02:41.220
  • BLESSING THAT GOD COMMANDS UPON
  • 00:02:41.220 --> 00:02:43.080
  • OUR LIVES, WE'VE GOT TO KNOW
  • 00:02:43.080 --> 00:02:45.060
  • ABOUT EACH OTHER.
  • 00:02:45.060 --> 00:02:46.010
  • WE'VE GOT TO UNDERSTAND HOW WE
  • 00:02:46.010 --> 00:02:47.260
  • WERE CREATED, AND WHAT
  • 00:02:47.260 --> 00:02:49.040
  • DEMOGRAPHICS AND THINGS
  • 00:02:49.040 --> 00:02:51.110
  • PERSUADE US.

  • THING THAT THE DEVIL IS AFRAID
  • 00:02:54.050 --> 00:02:55.150
  • OF IS A UNIFIED CHURCH.
  • 00:02:55.230 --> 00:02:58.230
  • AND THAT'S WHAT I WANT
  • 00:02:58.230 --> 00:02:59.200
  • CORNERSTONE CHURCH TO BE.
  • 00:02:59.200 --> 00:03:00.240
  • SO FOR THE NEXT THREE SUNDAY
  • 00:03:00.240 --> 00:03:01.280
  • NIGHTS, THAT'S GOING TO KIND OF
  • 00:03:01.280 --> 00:03:03.060
  • COVER OUR TOPIC.
  • 00:03:03.060 --> 00:03:04.020
  • TONIGHT WE BEGIN WITH AN
  • 00:03:04.020 --> 00:03:05.010
  • INTERVIEW WITH SOME OF MY
  • 00:03:05.010 --> 00:03:06.170
  • FAVORITE FRIENDS.
  • 00:03:06.170 --> 00:03:07.220
  • THIS IS NORMAN
  • 00:03:07.220 --> 00:03:08.250
  • AND TUJWANDA TRAIL.
  • 00:03:08.250 --> 00:03:10.120
  • AND I WANT YOU TO GIVE THEM A
  • 00:03:10.120 --> 00:03:11.140
  • HANDCLAP AND THANK THEM FOR
  • 00:03:11.140 --> 00:03:13.020
  • THEIR WILLINGNESS --
  • 00:03:13.020 --> 00:03:14.210
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:03:15.090 --> 00:03:18.090

  • TEACHING.
  • 00:03:21.060 --> 00:03:21.210
  • THE REASON WE'RE HAVING
  • 00:03:21.210 --> 00:03:22.180
  • INTERVIEWS IS BECAUSE SOMETIMES
  • 00:03:22.180 --> 00:03:24.040
  • WHEN A PERSON STANDS BEHIND A
  • 00:03:24.040 --> 00:03:25.270
  • PULPIT, YOU SAY, WELL HE'S JUST
  • 00:03:25.270 --> 00:03:27.080
  • SAYING THINGS HE'S HEARD.
  • 00:03:27.080 --> 00:03:28.200
  • BUT WHEN OTHER PEOPLE SHARE
  • 00:03:28.200 --> 00:03:29.170
  • WITH YOU THEIR EXPERIENCE, THEN
  • 00:03:29.170 --> 00:03:31.010
  • YOU START TO RELATE A LITTLE
  • 00:03:31.010 --> 00:03:32.210
  • BETTER TO THEIR SITUATION.
  • 00:03:32.210 --> 00:03:34.000
  • FIRST, LET ME ASK YOU THIS
  • 00:03:34.000 --> 00:03:34.280
  • QUESTION; WHEN DID YOU START
  • 00:03:34.280 --> 00:03:36.140
  • COMING TO CORNERSTONE CHURCH?
  • 00:03:36.140 --> 00:03:38.290
  • NORMAN TRAIL: WE STARTED
  • 00:03:38.290 --> 00:03:39.290
  • COMING TO CORNERSTONE CHURCH IN
  • 00:03:39.290 --> 00:03:41.010
  • 1998.
  • 00:03:41.010 --> 00:03:42.090
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: '98.
  • 00:03:42.090 --> 00:03:43.060
  • WHEN DID YOU MEET?
  • 00:03:43.060 --> 00:03:46.020
  • NORMAN TRAIL: WE MET IN 1994.
  • 00:03:46.260 --> 00:03:49.260
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: '94; OKAY.
  • 00:03:49.260 --> 00:03:51.100
  • SO YOU MET IN '94.
  • 00:03:51.100 --> 00:03:52.170
  • TUJWANDA, WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO
  • 00:03:52.170 --> 00:03:55.010
  • CHOOSE NORMAN AS YOUR HUSBAND?
  • 00:03:55.080 --> 00:03:58.080
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:03:58.080 --> 00:04:00.180
  • TUJWANDA TRAIL: SO IN THE
  • 00:04:00.180 --> 00:04:01.240
  • BEGINNING I DON'T THINK I WAS
  • 00:04:01.240 --> 00:04:04.170
  • REALLY THAT INTERESTED IN HIM.
  • 00:04:04.170 --> 00:04:07.000
  • I REALLY WASN'T.
  • 00:04:07.000 --> 00:04:09.190
  • BUT OVER TIME, HE ACTUALLY GREW
  • 00:04:09.190 --> 00:04:11.000
  • ON ME AND --
  • 00:04:11.000 --> 00:04:13.180
  • NORMAN TRAIL: I HAD TO WORK
  • 00:04:13.180 --> 00:04:14.120
  • FAST. I HAD TO WORK.
  • 00:04:14.120 --> 00:04:15.230
  • TUJWANDA TRAIL: AND HE ACTUALLY
  • 00:04:15.230 --> 00:04:17.010
  • BALANCES ME.
  • 00:04:17.010 --> 00:04:17.270
  • I AM MORE OF A RULE FOLLOWER.
  • 00:04:17.270 --> 00:04:20.180
  • IF THERE'S A RULE, I KNOW THE
  • 00:04:20.180 --> 00:04:21.180
  • RULE.
  • 00:04:21.180 --> 00:04:22.050
  • I CAN RECITE THE RULE TO YOU.
  • 00:04:22.050 --> 00:04:23.180
  • AND I'LL YOU ACCOUNTABLE FOR
  • 00:04:23.180 --> 00:04:25.050
  • HOLDING UP THE RULE.
  • 00:04:25.050 --> 00:04:26.260
  • NORMAN TRAIL: LORD, HAVE
  • 00:04:26.260 --> 00:04:27.270
  • MERCY.
  • 00:04:27.270 --> 00:04:28.220
  • TUJWANDA TRAIL: BUT HE'S --
  • 00:04:28.220 --> 00:04:29.140
  • UH -- DIFFERENT.
  • 00:04:29.140 --> 00:04:30.130
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: HE'S
  • 00:04:30.130 --> 00:04:31.040
  • DIFFERENT?
  • 00:04:31.040 --> 00:04:31.290
  • TUJWANDA TRAIL: HE'S DIFFERENT.
  • 00:04:31.290 --> 00:04:32.240
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:04:32.240 --> 00:04:33.230
  • BEFORE THAT HOLE GETS ANY
  • 00:04:33.230 --> 00:04:35.040
  • DEEPER, TRAIL, YOUR
  • 00:04:35.040 --> 00:04:36.250
  • RULE-KEEPING WIFE SAYS THAT YOU
  • 00:04:36.250 --> 00:04:38.140
  • BALANCED HER OUT.
  • 00:04:38.140 --> 00:04:39.110
  • WHAT MADE YOU PICK HER SINCE
  • 00:04:39.110 --> 00:04:41.030
  • SHE LIKES TO KEEP THE RULES?
  • 00:04:41.030 --> 00:04:43.100
  • NORMAN TRAIL: I DIDN'T KNOW
  • 00:04:43.100 --> 00:04:44.260
  • THAT SHE LIKED TO KEEP THE RULES
  • 00:04:44.260 --> 00:04:46.100
  • AS MUCH AS SHE LIKED TO, BUT I
  • 00:04:46.100 --> 00:04:47.090
  • WAS PROBABLY ALREADY INVOLVED
  • 00:04:47.090 --> 00:04:48.150
  • IN IT.
  • 00:04:48.150 --> 00:04:49.030
  • BUT UM -- I THINK THE THING
  • 00:04:49.030 --> 00:04:51.010
  • THAT REALLY SETS TUJWANDA APART
  • 00:04:51.010 --> 00:04:53.090
  • IS TUJWANDA BROUGHT A DIMENSION
  • 00:04:53.090 --> 00:04:56.010
  • TO ME THAT I NEVER EXPERIENCED
  • 00:04:56.010 --> 00:04:57.080
  • BEFORE.
  • 00:04:57.080 --> 00:04:57.270
  • WHEN I TALKED TO HER, SHE
  • 00:04:57.270 --> 00:04:59.250
  • ACTUALLY TALKED BACK TO ME.
  • 00:04:59.250 --> 00:05:01.250
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:01.250 --> 00:05:04.030
  • I MEAN, I SAID, "HI,"
  • 00:05:04.030 --> 00:05:05.160
  • AND SHE SAID, "HI" BACK.
  • 00:05:05.160 --> 00:05:06.160
  • AND I ASKED HER FOR HER
  • 00:05:06.160 --> 00:05:08.280
  • TELEPHONE NUMBER
  • 00:05:08.280 --> 00:05:10.010
  • AND SHE GAVE IT TO ME.
  • 00:05:10.010 --> 00:05:12.210
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:12.210 --> 00:05:14.050
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: SO
  • 00:05:14.050 --> 00:05:15.130
  • TUJWANDA, WHEN YOU SAID THAT
  • 00:05:15.130 --> 00:05:16.240
  • YOU WOULD MARRY TRAIL, WHEN YOU
  • 00:05:16.240 --> 00:05:18.010
  • ACCEPTED HIS PROPOSAL,
  • 00:05:18.010 --> 00:05:19.230
  • WERE YOU READY FOR MARRIAGE?
  • 00:05:19.230 --> 00:05:21.150
  • TUJWANDA TRAIL: I ACTUALLY
  • 00:05:21.150 --> 00:05:23.060
  • THOUGHT I WAS.
  • 00:05:23.060 --> 00:05:24.010
  • THERE'S REALLY NO HAND BOOK
  • 00:05:24.010 --> 00:05:25.100
  • OR RULE BOOK ON MARRIAGE,
  • 00:05:25.100 --> 00:05:27.280
  • SO I THOUGHT I WAS READY FOR
  • 00:05:27.280 --> 00:05:29.000
  • MARRIAGE.
  • 00:05:29.000 --> 00:05:29.200
  • THEN ONCE I GOT MARRIED, I
  • 00:05:29.200 --> 00:05:31.110
  • REALIZED IT'S A LOT OF WORK.
  • 00:05:31.110 --> 00:05:33.020
  • DATING IS EASY COMPARED TO
  • 00:05:33.020 --> 00:05:34.280
  • BEING MARRIED.
  • 00:05:34.280 --> 00:05:36.060
  • SO ONCE I GOT INTO IT, I
  • 00:05:36.060 --> 00:05:37.250
  • REALIZED THAT I MAY HAVE BEEN
  • 00:05:37.250 --> 00:05:40.060
  • IN A LITTLE OVER MY HEAD.
  • 00:05:40.060 --> 00:05:42.270
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: TRAIL, SO
  • 00:05:42.270 --> 00:05:44.030
  • WHENEVER YOU ASKED HER TO MARRY
  • 00:05:44.030 --> 00:05:45.040
  • YOU, WERE YOU READY TO BE A
  • 00:05:45.040 --> 00:05:46.140
  • HUSBAND?
  • 00:05:46.140 --> 00:05:47.140
  • NORMAN TRAIL: UH, YEAH.
  • 00:05:47.140 --> 00:05:49.150
  • I MEAN I LEARNED HOW TO BE A
  • 00:05:49.150 --> 00:05:50.210
  • HUSBAND FROM WATCHING MY DAD,
  • 00:05:50.210 --> 00:05:52.070
  • WHO DIDN'T GROW UP IN THE LORD,
  • 00:05:53.120 --> 00:05:56.120
  • SO MY FATHER DRANK.
  • 00:05:56.120 --> 00:05:58.010
  • SO I WAS FOLLOWING THROUGH, SO
  • 00:05:58.010 --> 00:05:59.170
  • I DRANK.
  • 00:05:59.170 --> 00:06:00.200
  • WHEN THINGS DIDN'T GO WELL, MY
  • 00:06:00.200 --> 00:06:02.040
  • FATHER PLAYED THE FIELD; SO I
  • 00:06:02.040 --> 00:06:03.280
  • FIGURED I COULD GET THAT DONE
  • 00:06:03.280 --> 00:06:05.120
  • TOO.
  • 00:06:05.120 --> 00:06:06.270
  • COMMUNICATION BETWEEN MY MOTHER
  • 00:06:06.270 --> 00:06:08.120
  • AND FATHER WAS CONSTANT ARGUING
  • 00:06:08.120 --> 00:06:10.160
  • BACK AND FORTH.
  • 00:06:10.160 --> 00:06:11.100
  • SO I FIGURED I GOT THAT TOO.
  • 00:06:11.100 --> 00:06:13.040
  • SO I FIGURED I WAS ALL SET TO
  • 00:06:13.040 --> 00:06:15.000
  • GET MARRIED.
  • 00:06:15.000 --> 00:06:15.210
  • AND WHEN I GOT MARRIED, MY WIFE
  • 00:06:15.210 --> 00:06:17.260
  • TOLD ME THAT'S NOT HOW THINGS
  • 00:06:17.260 --> 00:06:19.260
  • ARE SUPPOSED TO BE.
  • 00:06:19.260 --> 00:06:21.140
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:06:21.140 --> 00:06:23.130
  • SO AS YOU CAN SEE, I MARRIED
  • 00:06:23.130 --> 00:06:24.290
  • UP FROM WHERE I GREW UP.
  • 00:06:24.290 --> 00:06:27.150
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: SO YOU
  • 00:06:27.150 --> 00:06:28.280

  • SAW DEMONSTRATED IN YOUR
  • 00:06:30.150 --> 00:06:31.160
  • PARENT'S RELATIONSHIP, THINKING
  • 00:06:31.160 --> 00:06:33.070
  • THAT'S WHAT MADE YOU READY FOR
  • 00:06:33.070 --> 00:06:34.200
  • YOUR RELATIONSHIP, ONLY TO FIND
  • 00:06:34.200 --> 00:06:36.040
  • OUT THAT THAT WASN'T TRUE.
  • 00:06:36.040 --> 00:06:38.000
  • NORMAN TRAIL: ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:06:38.000 --> 00:06:38.210
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: NOW
  • 00:06:38.210 --> 00:06:39.210
  • YOU'VE BEEN VERY CANDID IN
  • 00:06:39.210 --> 00:06:41.170
  • TIMES WORKING HERE AT THE
  • 00:06:41.170 --> 00:06:42.190
  • CHURCH, SHARING THE TESTIMONY
  • 00:06:42.190 --> 00:06:44.050
  • OF GOD'S HEALING POWER IN YOUR
  • 00:06:44.050 --> 00:06:45.290
  • MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:06:45.290 --> 00:06:47.000
  • BUT WHAT WAS IT THAT MADE YOU
  • 00:06:47.000 --> 00:06:49.210
  • STICK TOGETHER WHEN QUIT LOOKED
  • 00:06:49.210 --> 00:06:51.150
  • GOOD?
  • 00:06:51.150 --> 00:06:52.000
  • WE LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE
  • 00:06:52.000 --> 00:06:52.250
  • QUITTING IS EASY.
  • 00:06:52.250 --> 00:06:54.040
  • BUT YOU DECIDED TO STICK
  • 00:06:54.040 --> 00:06:55.080
  • TOGETHER INSTEAD OF GIVING UP.
  • 00:06:55.080 --> 00:06:56.250
  • WHY?
  • 00:06:56.250 --> 00:06:58.110
  • TUJWANDA TRAIL: I'LL GO FIRST.
  • 00:06:58.110 --> 00:06:59.260
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:06:59.260 --> 00:07:01.250
  • I ACTUALLY WAS READY TO QUIT.
  • 00:07:01.290 --> 00:07:04.290
  • I WAS AT THE POINT WHERE I HAD
  • 00:07:04.290 --> 00:07:06.110
  • BAGS PACKED AND I WAS READY TO
  • 00:07:06.110 --> 00:07:08.200
  • JUST WALK OUT THE DOOR.
  • 00:07:08.200 --> 00:07:10.000
  • AND THEN A FRIEND OF OURS SAID,
  • 00:07:10.000 --> 00:07:11.120
  • YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:07:11.120 --> 00:07:12.020
  • YOU'VE GOT TO MEET THIS LADY.
  • 00:07:12.020 --> 00:07:13.100
  • YOU'VE GOT TO MEET MY PASTOR'S
  • 00:07:13.100 --> 00:07:14.220
  • WIFE.
  • 00:07:14.220 --> 00:07:15.220
  • AND SO WHAT SHE DID IS SHE TOOK
  • 00:07:15.220 --> 00:07:17.180
  • ME AND TRAIL OVER TO VISIT WITH
  • 00:07:17.180 --> 00:07:19.150
  • HER PASTOR'S WIFE.
  • 00:07:19.150 --> 00:07:21.110
  • IT WAS A VERY SMALL CHURCH HERE
  • 00:07:21.110 --> 00:07:23.280
  • IN SAN ANTONIO.
  • 00:07:23.280 --> 00:07:25.170
  • AND WE MET WITH HIM.
  • 00:07:25.170 --> 00:07:27.200
  • AND AT THAT POINT, THAT NIGHT
  • 00:07:27.200 --> 00:07:29.050
  • WE GAVE OUR LIVES TO THE LORD.
  • 00:07:29.050 --> 00:07:30.180
  • WE DID IT AT THE SAME TIME.
  • 00:07:30.180 --> 00:07:31.240
  • AND THEN FROM THAT POINT ON, I
  • 00:07:31.240 --> 00:07:34.040
  • KNEW THAT I NEEDED TO WORK FOR
  • 00:07:34.190 --> 00:07:37.190
  • IT AND TO FIGHT FOR IT.
  • 00:07:37.190 --> 00:07:40.110
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: SO WHEN
  • 00:07:40.110 --> 00:07:41.280
  • YOUR WIFE HAS HER BAGS PACKED,
  • 00:07:41.280 --> 00:07:43.030
  • AND SHE SAYS, "I'M DONE,"
  • 00:07:43.030 --> 00:07:44.280
  • WHAT DID THAT DO TO YOU?
  • 00:07:44.280 --> 00:07:47.120
  • NORMAN TRAIL: PASTOR, AT THAT
  • 00:07:47.120 --> 00:07:48.190
  • TIME, I WAS WILLING TO DO
  • 00:07:48.190 --> 00:07:50.100
  • ANYTHING IT TOOK TO KEEP MY
  • 00:07:50.100 --> 00:07:51.160
  • MARRIAGE TOGETHER.
  • 00:07:51.160 --> 00:07:52.200
  • IF SHE WOULD HAVE SAID, GIVE
  • 00:07:52.200 --> 00:07:54.060
  • ME TEN OUR FATHER'S AND 50
  • 00:07:54.060 --> 00:07:55.290
  • HAIL MARRIES, I WOULD HAVE HAD
  • 00:07:55.290 --> 00:07:57.020
  • THAT DONE.
  • 00:07:57.020 --> 00:07:58.050
  • IF SHE WOULD HAVE SAID, DROP
  • 00:07:58.050 --> 00:07:59.040
  • DOWN AND GIVE ME 50 PUSH-UPS,
  • 00:07:59.040 --> 00:08:00.110
  • I MEAN WHATEVER I NEEDED TO DO,
  • 00:08:00.110 --> 00:08:02.060
  • I WAS WILLING TO DO TO KEEP MY
  • 00:08:02.060 --> 00:08:03.220
  • MARRIAGE TOGETHER.
  • 00:08:03.220 --> 00:08:04.170
  • FORTUNATELY FOR ME, SHE DID GO
  • 00:08:04.170 --> 00:08:07.060
  • TO CHURCH GROWING UP.
  • 00:08:07.060 --> 00:08:08.060
  • SO SHE KNEW THAT WHEN WE REALLY
  • 00:08:08.060 --> 00:08:09.140
  • CAME UP AGAINST IT, WE CAN GO
  • 00:08:09.140 --> 00:08:11.130
  • TO THE LORD.
  • 00:08:11.130 --> 00:08:12.070
  • AND WE GAVE OUR HEARTS TO THE
  • 00:08:12.070 --> 00:08:13.160
  • LORD.
  • 00:08:13.160 --> 00:08:14.020
  • IT WAS ACTUALLY AROUND
  • 00:08:14.020 --> 00:08:14.280
  • VALENTINE'S DAY --
  • 00:08:14.280 --> 00:08:16.000
  • TUJWANDA TRAIL: IT WAS.
  • 00:08:16.000 --> 00:08:17.030
  • NORMAN TRAIL: -- WHEN WE GAVE
  • 00:08:17.030 --> 00:08:17.290
  • OUR HEARTS TO THE LORD.
  • 00:08:17.290 --> 00:08:19.010
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: SO YOU
  • 00:08:19.010 --> 00:08:20.070
  • GAVE YOUR HEARTS TO CHRIST AND
  • 00:08:20.070 --> 00:08:21.090
  • THAT'S WHERE THE STORY OF
  • 00:08:21.090 --> 00:08:23.060
  • RESTORATION BEGINS FOR YOUR
  • 00:08:23.060 --> 00:08:25.040
  • LIVES AND ALSO FOR YOUR
  • 00:08:25.040 --> 00:08:26.110
  • MARRIAGE.
  • 00:08:26.110 --> 00:08:26.280
  • GIVE ME THREE THINGS THAT HAVE
  • 00:08:26.280 --> 00:08:29.050
  • CHANGED SINCE CHRIST CAME INTO
  • 00:08:29.050 --> 00:08:31.060
  • YOUR LIFE IN YOUR MARRIAGE
  • 00:08:31.060 --> 00:08:32.100
  • RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:08:32.100 --> 00:08:34.120
  • TUJWANDA TRAIL: IMMEDIATELY,
  • 00:08:34.120 --> 00:08:35.220
  • FOR ME, WHAT I DID IN MY SPARE
  • 00:08:35.220 --> 00:08:38.060
  • TIME CHANGED.
  • 00:08:38.060 --> 00:08:39.110
  • SO I BEGAN READING MY BIBLE.
  • 00:08:39.110 --> 00:08:41.050
  • I BEGAN PRAYING.
  • 00:08:41.050 --> 00:08:42.160
  • I BEGAN GETTING INVOLVED WITH
  • 00:08:42.160 --> 00:08:44.060
  • THE CHURCH, SURROUNDING MYSELF
  • 00:08:44.060 --> 00:08:45.200
  • AROUND PEOPLE WHO WERE LIKE
  • 00:08:45.200 --> 00:08:47.060
  • MINDED.
  • 00:08:47.060 --> 00:08:48.200
  • AND THEN ANOTHER THING THAT I
  • 00:08:48.200 --> 00:08:49.200
  • DID THAT HAS JUST TRULY BLESSED
  • 00:08:49.200 --> 00:08:51.150
  • US IS WE STARTED TITHING.
  • 00:08:51.150 --> 00:08:53.260
  • WE STARTED GIVING TO THE
  • 00:08:53.260 --> 00:08:54.220
  • MINISTRY.
  • 00:08:54.220 --> 00:08:56.010
  • SO THAT RIGHT THERE -- WE'VE
  • 00:08:56.010 --> 00:08:57.100
  • BEEN BLESSED TREMENDOUSLY.
  • 00:08:57.100 --> 00:08:59.250
  • AND REALLY, MYSELF, TAKING LIFE
  • 00:09:02.030 --> 00:09:05.030
  • TO A POINT TO WHERE IT'S NOT
  • 00:09:05.030 --> 00:09:06.040
  • ABOUT ME ANYMORE AND IT'S ABOUT
  • 00:09:06.040 --> 00:09:07.240
  • OTHERS, INCLUDING OTHERS,
  • 00:09:07.240 --> 00:09:09.270
  • AND BEING MORE AWARE AND
  • 00:09:09.270 --> 00:09:11.060
  • CONSCIOUS OF OTHER'S FEELINGS,
  • 00:09:11.060 --> 00:09:12.230
  • AND HELPING OUT OTHERS,
  • 00:09:12.230 --> 00:09:14.230
  • SEEING A NEED, AND HELPING OUT.
  • 00:09:14.230 --> 00:09:16.280
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: TRAIL,
  • 00:09:16.280 --> 00:09:18.020
  • WHAT ABOUT YOU?
  • 00:09:18.020 --> 00:09:19.080
  • NORMAN TRAIL: THERE'S A WHOLE
  • 00:09:19.080 --> 00:09:20.150
  • LOT MORE THAN THREE,
  • 00:09:20.150 --> 00:09:21.250
  • BUT IF I HAD TO PICK JUST THREE,
  • 00:09:21.250 --> 00:09:22.280
  • THE FIRST THING I'D HAVE TO SAY
  • 00:09:22.280 --> 00:09:23.290
  • WAS I WASN'T HONORING MY WIFE.
  • 00:09:24.010 --> 00:09:27.010
  • I WASN'T HONORING HER IN HOW I
  • 00:09:27.010 --> 00:09:29.010
  • SPOKE TO HER.
  • 00:09:29.010 --> 00:09:29.260
  • I WAS REALLY HARSH IN SPEAKING
  • 00:09:29.260 --> 00:09:31.250
  • TO HER.
  • 00:09:31.250 --> 00:09:32.270
  • AND I HAD TO TELL MYSELF, SPEAK
  • 00:09:32.270 --> 00:09:34.220
  • KINDLY TO HER.
  • 00:09:34.220 --> 00:09:35.210
  • AND THAT WASN'T BACK IN '98
  • 00:09:35.210 --> 00:09:38.030
  • WHEN WE CAME TO KNOW THE LORD,
  • 00:09:38.030 --> 00:09:39.040
  • BUT THAT WAS THIS MORNING
  • 00:09:39.040 --> 00:09:40.040
  • AS WELL.
  • 00:09:40.040 --> 00:09:41.130
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:09:41.130 --> 00:09:43.250
  • AND THEN UH --
  • 00:09:43.250 --> 00:09:46.070
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:09:46.070 --> 00:09:48.170
  • AND THEN I HAD TO HONOR THE
  • 00:09:48.170 --> 00:09:49.230
  • LORD.
  • 00:09:49.230 --> 00:09:50.150
  • THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT, AGAIN,
  • 00:09:50.150 --> 00:09:51.160
  • I WASN'T DOING.
  • 00:09:51.160 --> 00:09:53.100
  • AND I DON'T KNOW HOW WE COULD
  • 00:09:53.100 --> 00:09:54.210
  • SAY TITHING HOW IT RELATES TO
  • 00:09:54.210 --> 00:09:56.190
  • RELATIONSHIPS, BUT IT DID.
  • 00:09:56.190 --> 00:09:59.040
  • THAT WAS A TURNING POINT IN
  • 00:09:59.040 --> 00:10:00.280
  • TUJWANDA'S AND MY RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:10:00.280 --> 00:10:01.280
  • BECAUSE ONE OF THE THINGS WE
  • 00:10:01.280 --> 00:10:03.050
  • CONSTANTLY FOUGHT OVER WAS WE
  • 00:10:03.050 --> 00:10:04.180
  • DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY.
  • 00:10:04.180 --> 00:10:06.070
  • IT WAS A DECISION WHETHER OR
  • 00:10:06.070 --> 00:10:07.080
  • NOT WE WERE GOING TO PAY THE
  • 00:10:07.080 --> 00:10:08.140
  • BABYSITTER LATE OR PAY THE
  • 00:10:08.140 --> 00:10:09.220
  • LIGHT BILL LATE.

  • 00:10:11.160 --> 00:10:14.140
  • US TO THE LOBBY TO PRAY.
  • 00:10:14.140 --> 00:10:16.110
  • WE ASKED A LADY TO PRAY FOR OUR
  • 00:10:16.110 --> 00:10:17.140
  • FINANCES.
  • 00:10:17.140 --> 00:10:18.240
  • SHE ASKED IF WE WERE TITHING.
  • 00:10:18.240 --> 00:10:20.160
  • WE SAID, NO.
  • 00:10:20.160 --> 00:10:21.150
  • SHE SAID, YOU NEED TO START.
  • 00:10:21.150 --> 00:10:23.000
  • AND WE DID.
  • 00:10:23.000 --> 00:10:23.240

  • 00:10:23.240 --> 00:10:24.210
  • PASTOR, IS IT SET US FREE
  • 00:10:24.210 --> 00:10:27.130
  • FINANCIALLY.
  • 00:10:27.130 --> 00:10:28.140
  • NOW, WE STILL ARGUE OVER
  • 00:10:28.140 --> 00:10:29.160
  • FINANCES.

  • SO WE STILL HAVE OUR CONFLICTS
  • 00:10:35.260 --> 00:10:37.130
  • BUT WE STARTED TO HONOR THE
  • 00:10:37.130 --> 00:10:38.240
  • LORD.
  • 00:10:38.240 --> 00:10:39.130
  • AND I HAD TO CHANGE WHO I

  • ABOUT TITHING THAT IT DOES FOR
  • 00:10:48.010 --> 00:10:49.120

  • THE CONVERSATION BY SAYING THAT
  • 00:10:50.160 --> 00:10:51.270

  • 00:15:33.160 --> 00:15:34.230
  • UNDERSTAND HOW THEY EVER GOT
  • 00:15:34.230 --> 00:15:36.040
  • THAT WAY, HE WOULD LOOK AT YOU
  • 00:15:36.040 --> 00:15:37.290
  • AND SAY, "WELL SON, GODS HAS A
  • 00:15:37.290 --> 00:15:39.230
  • CROOKED POT FOR EVERY CROOKED
  • 00:15:39.230 --> 00:15:41.000
  • LID."
  • 00:15:41.000 --> 00:15:42.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:42.190 --> 00:15:43.280
  • AND THE PROBLEM THAT WE HAVE
  • 00:15:43.280 --> 00:15:45.280
  • IN OUR WORLD TODAY IS THAT WE
  • 00:15:45.280 --> 00:15:47.070
  • REALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT
  • 00:15:47.070 --> 00:15:48.140
  • NORMAL IS.
  • 00:15:48.140 --> 00:15:49.280
  • WE LOOK AT THE RELATIONSHIPS WE
  • 00:15:49.280 --> 00:15:51.040
  • SEE ON TV, AND WE SAY, WELL
  • 00:15:51.040 --> 00:15:52.270
  • THOSE RELATIONSHIPS MUST BE
  • 00:15:52.270 --> 00:15:54.150
  • NORMAL.
  • 00:15:54.150 --> 00:15:55.110
  • AND PREDICATED ON WHICH DECADE
  • 00:15:55.110 --> 00:15:56.270
  • YOU WATCHED TELEVISION IN,
  • 00:15:56.270 --> 00:15:58.210
  • WOULD DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT
  • 00:15:58.210 --> 00:15:59.290
  • I WOULD SUGGEST YOU WOULD EVEN
  • 00:15:59.290 --> 00:16:01.210
  • CONSIDER THAT PATTERN.
  • 00:16:01.210 --> 00:16:03.210
  • SOME OF YOU GREW UP WATCHING
  • 00:16:03.210 --> 00:16:04.220
  • OZZIE AND HARRIET AND
  • 00:16:04.220 --> 00:16:06.090
  • I LOVE LUCY, NOT SO BAD.
  • 00:16:06.090 --> 00:16:08.060
  • SOME OF YOUR KIDS AND GRAND
  • 00:16:08.060 --> 00:16:09.140
  • KIDS ARE WATCHING THE
  • 00:16:09.140 --> 00:16:10.110
  • KARDASHIANS.
  • 00:16:10.110 --> 00:16:11.160
  • DON'T EVER WATCH THEM AND
  • 00:16:11.160 --> 00:16:13.210
  • THINK, NORMAL.
  • 00:16:13.210 --> 00:16:15.110
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:16:18.140 --> 00:16:21.140
  • ONE OF THE PROBLEMS WE HAVE
  • 00:16:21.140 --> 00:16:24.060
  • WITH NORMAL IS WE BRING THE
  • 00:16:24.060 --> 00:16:25.180
  • BEHAVIORS OF OUR PARENTS AND
  • 00:16:25.180 --> 00:16:27.050
  • OUR GRANDPARENTS INTO OUR
  • 00:16:27.050 --> 00:16:28.140
  • RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:16:28.140 --> 00:16:29.070
  • AND WE SAY, WELL THE WAY THEY
  • 00:16:29.070 --> 00:16:30.140
  • DID IT, THAT'S NORMAL.
  • 00:16:30.140 --> 00:16:32.000
  • YOU HEARD TRAIL JUST A FEW
  • 00:16:32.000 --> 00:16:33.070
  • MOMENT AGO SHARE HOW HE SAW HIS
  • 00:16:33.070 --> 00:16:35.050
  • FATHER DRINK, AND HE SAW HIS
  • 00:16:35.050 --> 00:16:36.210
  • FATHER SPEAK TO HIS MOTHER, AND
  • 00:16:36.210 --> 00:16:38.150
  • HE SAW HIS FATHER BEHAVE WITH
  • 00:16:38.150 --> 00:16:40.050
  • THOSE IN THE CITY AROUND HIM.
  • 00:16:40.050 --> 00:16:41.230
  • AND HE THOUGHT, WELL SINCE I'M
  • 00:16:41.230 --> 00:16:42.280
  • DOING ALL THREE OF THOSE
  • 00:16:42.280 --> 00:16:43.210
  • THINGS, I'M NORMAL.
  • 00:16:43.210 --> 00:16:45.090
  • AND TUJWANDA, WHEN SHE FOUND
  • 00:16:45.090 --> 00:16:46.210
  • THESE BEHAVIORS IN HIM, SHE
  • 00:16:46.210 --> 00:16:47.250
  • SAID, "THAT'S NOT NORMAL."
  • 00:16:48.120 --> 00:16:51.120
  • AND SOME OF THE TIMES, WHAT WE
  • 00:16:51.120 --> 00:16:52.230
  • NEED TO RECOGNIZE IS THAT
  • 00:16:52.230 --> 00:16:54.100
  • WHENEVER IT COMES TO THE
  • 00:16:54.100 --> 00:16:55.090
  • STANDARD OF NORMALITY, WHEN IT
  • 00:16:55.090 --> 00:16:57.070
  • COMES TO WHAT IS SUPPOSED TO BE,
  • 00:16:57.070 --> 00:16:59.260
  • WE'VE GOT TO QUIT LOOKING AT THE
  • 00:16:59.260 --> 00:17:01.130
  • WORLD.
  • 00:17:01.130 --> 00:17:01.270
  • WE'VE GOT TO QUIT READING THE
  • 00:17:01.270 --> 00:17:03.010
  • MAGAZINE RACKS IN THE GROCERY
  • 00:17:03.010 --> 00:17:04.190
  • STORE AS WE WALK OUT.
  • 00:17:04.190 --> 00:17:06.050
  • DON'T ACT LIKE YOU DON'T DO
  • 00:17:06.050 --> 00:17:07.100
  • THAT.
  • 00:17:07.100 --> 00:17:09.130
  • OH, PASTOR, I DON'T EVER BUY
  • 00:17:09.130 --> 00:17:10.140
  • IT.
  • 00:17:10.140 --> 00:17:11.000
  • YEAH, BUT YOU STARE AT IT REAL
  • 00:17:11.000 --> 00:17:12.080
  • LONG AND SIDEWAYS WHILE YOU'RE
  • 00:17:12.080 --> 00:17:14.010
  • THERE IN THE GROCERY STORE.
  • 00:17:14.010 --> 00:17:16.100
  • BABY FOUND WITH HOW MANY
  • 00:17:16.100 --> 00:17:17.180
  • HEADS?
  • 00:17:17.180 --> 00:17:18.260
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:18.260 --> 00:17:20.050
  • YOU'VE GOT TO QUIT LOOKING TO
  • 00:17:20.050 --> 00:17:21.290
  • ALL OF THESE SOURCES TO
  • 00:17:21.290 --> 00:17:23.020
  • DETERMINE WHAT NORMAL IS.
  • 00:17:23.020 --> 00:17:24.170
  • AND YOU'VE GOT TO RECOGNIZE
  • 00:17:24.170 --> 00:17:25.290
  • THAT THE STANDARD THAT WE, AS
  • 00:17:25.290 --> 00:17:27.140
  • BIBLE-BELIEVING CHRISTIANS,
  • 00:17:27.140 --> 00:17:28.260
  • LIVE BY IS THE STANDARD OF
  • 00:17:28.260 --> 00:17:31.050
  • THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:17:31.050 --> 00:17:33.180
  • WHEN IT COMES TO A MARRIAGE
  • 00:17:33.180 --> 00:17:34.170
  • RELATIONSHIP, I APPRECIATE WHAT
  • 00:17:34.170 --> 00:17:36.250
  • YOUR PARENTS HAVE TAUGHT YOU.
  • 00:17:36.250 --> 00:17:38.090
  • I APPRECIATE WHAT MY PARENTS
  • 00:17:38.090 --> 00:17:39.190
  • TAUGHT ME.
  • 00:17:39.190 --> 00:17:40.090
  • THEY'RE A GREAT POINT OF
  • 00:17:40.090 --> 00:17:41.120
  • REFERENCE, BUT THEY'RE NOT THE
  • 00:17:41.120 --> 00:17:42.280
  • STANDARD OF NORMAL.
  • 00:17:42.280 --> 00:17:45.240
  • WHEN I LOOK AT A MARRIAGE
  • 00:17:45.240 --> 00:17:46.270
  • RELATIONSHIP, I DON'T CONSIDER
  • 00:17:46.270 --> 00:17:48.240
  • THOSE WHO HAVE SUCCEEDED AND I
  • 00:17:48.240 --> 00:17:50.140
  • DON'T CONSIDER THOSE WHO HAVE
  • 00:17:50.140 --> 00:17:51.170
  • FAILED.
  • 00:17:51.170 --> 00:17:52.100
  • I KNEW A LADY THAT USED TO TELL
  • 00:17:52.100 --> 00:17:53.260
  • PEOPLE, OH, EVERY TIME MY
  • 00:17:53.260 --> 00:17:55.050
  • HUSBAND CHEATED,
  • 00:17:55.050 --> 00:17:55.280
  • HE'D BRING HOME FLOWERS.
  • 00:17:55.280 --> 00:17:57.050
  • WELL GUESS WHAT?
  • 00:17:57.050 --> 00:17:57.230
  • I'VE NEVER CHEATED AND I BRING
  • 00:17:57.230 --> 00:17:59.110
  • HOME FLOWERS.
  • 00:17:59.110 --> 00:18:00.210
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:00.210 --> 00:18:02.020
  • AND SO WHEN I BRING HOME
  • 00:18:02.020 --> 00:18:03.060
  • FLOWERS, I DON'T WANT MY WIFE
  • 00:18:03.060 --> 00:18:04.050
  • TO LOOK AT ME AND GO,
  • 00:18:04.050 --> 00:18:05.120
  • WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?
  • 00:18:05.120 --> 00:18:07.050
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:07.050 --> 00:18:08.070
  • I WANT HER TO ENJOY THE
  • 00:18:08.070 --> 00:18:09.120
  • FLOWERS.
  • 00:18:09.120 --> 00:18:11.280
  • SO AND TO UNDERSTAND WHAT
  • 00:18:11.280 --> 00:18:13.050
  • MARRIAGE IS, WE HAVE TO
  • 00:18:13.050 --> 00:18:14.180
  • RECOGNIZE WHO CREATED MARRIAGE.
  • 00:18:14.180 --> 00:18:17.040
  • AND THE ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION
  • 00:18:17.040 --> 00:18:18.120
  • IS THIS; GOD CREATED MARRIAGE.
  • 00:18:18.200 --> 00:18:21.200
  • THERE IS NO COURT IN THE LAND
  • 00:18:21.200 --> 00:18:23.160
  • THAT GETS TO DEFINE WHAT GOD
  • 00:18:23.160 --> 00:18:25.230
  • HAS CREATED.
  • 00:18:25.230 --> 00:18:27.100
  • IN GENESIS 1:27, IT SAYS: HE
  • 00:18:27.100 --> 00:18:29.140
  • CREATED THEM MALE AND FEMALE.
  • 00:18:30.110 --> 00:18:33.110
  • HE SAID THAT ON PURPOSE BECAUSE
  • 00:18:33.110 --> 00:18:35.010
  • THOSE TWO GENDERS ARE VERY
  • 00:18:35.010 --> 00:18:37.100
  • DIFFERENT.
  • 00:18:37.100 --> 00:18:39.040
  • THESE TWO ARE EQUAL BEINGS IN
  • 00:18:39.040 --> 00:18:41.000
  • THE EYES OF GOD.
  • 00:18:41.000 --> 00:18:42.090
  • HE CREATED THEM MALE AND FEMALE
  • 00:18:42.090 --> 00:18:44.060
  • BECAUSE THEY WERE INTENDED TO
  • 00:18:44.060 --> 00:18:45.160
  • COMPLEMENT EACH OTHER, NOT
  • 00:18:45.160 --> 00:18:48.020
  • COMPETE WITH ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:18:48.020 --> 00:18:51.020
  • AND WHEN HE CREATED THEM MALE
  • 00:18:51.020 --> 00:18:52.120
  • AND FEMALE, HE SET ASIDE A VERY
  • 00:18:52.120 --> 00:18:54.150
  • SIGNIFICANT AND SPECIAL
  • 00:18:54.150 --> 00:18:55.270
  • COVENANT RELATIONSHIP CALLED
  • 00:18:55.270 --> 00:18:57.160
  • "MARRIAGE"; THAT THESE TWO
  • 00:18:57.160 --> 00:18:59.080
  • COULD EXIST IN THE BOND OF HOLY
  • 00:18:59.080 --> 00:19:01.190
  • MATRIMONY, AND THAT THEY,
  • 00:19:01.190 --> 00:19:03.100
  • TOGETHER, WOULD BE THE
  • 00:19:03.100 --> 00:19:04.100
  • FOUNDATION OF SOCIETY.
  • 00:19:04.110 --> 00:19:07.110
  • DO YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT IS
  • 00:19:07.110 --> 00:19:08.140
  • WRONG IN THE COUNTRY?
  • 00:19:08.140 --> 00:19:10.120
  • WE HAVE A FOUNDATIONAL ISSUE.
  • 00:19:10.120 --> 00:19:12.100
  • AND THE FOUNDATIONAL ISSUE IS
  • 00:19:12.100 --> 00:19:14.000
  • NOT IN THE DOCUMENTS THAT
  • 00:19:14.000 --> 00:19:15.020
  • FORMED US.
  • 00:19:15.020 --> 00:19:15.280
  • IT'S NOT IN THE PEOPLE WHO SIT
  • 00:19:15.280 --> 00:19:17.070
  • IN THE OFFICES THAT LEAD US.
  • 00:19:17.070 --> 00:19:18.230
  • THE FOUNDATIONAL STRUCTURE THAT
  • 00:19:18.230 --> 00:19:20.190
  • WE ARE HAVING THE MOST TROUBLE
  • 00:19:20.190 --> 00:19:22.070
  • KEEPING TOGETHER IN THE UNITED
  • 00:19:22.070 --> 00:19:23.190
  • STATES IS THAT OF THE FAMILY.
  • 00:19:24.050 --> 00:19:27.050
  • IF YOU HAVE STRONG FAMILIES,
  • 00:19:27.050 --> 00:19:28.260
  • YOU HAVE STRONG CHURCHES.
  • 00:19:28.260 --> 00:19:30.070
  • IF YOU HAVE STRONG CHURCHES,
  • 00:19:30.070 --> 00:19:31.170
  • YOU HAVE STRONG CITIES.
  • 00:19:31.170 --> 00:19:33.000
  • IF YOU HAVE STRONG CITIES,
  • 00:19:33.000 --> 00:19:34.110
  • YOU HAVE STRONG STATES.
  • 00:19:34.110 --> 00:19:35.180
  • AND WITH STRONG STATES,
  • 00:19:35.180 --> 00:19:36.160
  • YOU HAVE STRONG NATIONS.
  • 00:19:36.160 --> 00:19:38.030
  • AND THAT'S WHAT MAKES A GREAT
  • 00:19:38.030 --> 00:19:40.060
  • NATION.
  • 00:19:40.060 --> 00:19:43.050
  • THE REASON WE BEGIN BY LOOKING
  • 00:19:43.050 --> 00:19:44.120
  • AT THAT RELATIONSHIP OF
  • 00:19:44.120 --> 00:19:45.100
  • MARRIAGE IS BECAUSE THIS IS
  • 00:19:45.100 --> 00:19:46.190
  • PROBABLY THE MOST SPECIFIC AND
  • 00:19:46.190 --> 00:19:48.290
  • IMPORTANT RELATIONSHIP OF ALL
  • 00:19:48.290 --> 00:19:51.090
  • THAT WE NEED TO WORK ON SAVING.
  • 00:19:51.150 --> 00:19:54.150
  • IF THERE'S ANYTHING THAT SHOULD
  • 00:19:54.150 --> 00:19:55.150
  • BE ADDED TO THE ENDANGERED
  • 00:19:55.150 --> 00:19:57.030
  • SPECIES LIST, UNFORTUNATELY,
  • 00:19:57.030 --> 00:19:59.030
  • IT IS BIBLICAL MARRIAGE.
  • 00:19:59.240 --> 00:20:02.240
  • 1 JOHN 3:14, IT SAYS: WE KNOW
  • 00:20:02.240 --> 00:20:05.000
  • WE HAVE PASSED FROM DEATH UNTO
  • 00:20:05.000 --> 00:20:06.030
  • LIFE BECAUSE WE LOVE THE
  • 00:20:06.030 --> 00:20:08.150
  • BRETHREN.
  • 00:20:08.150 --> 00:20:09.110
  • SAY THAT WITH ME, WE LOVE THE
  • 00:20:09.110 --> 00:20:11.190
  • BRETHREN.
  • 00:20:11.190 --> 00:20:12.050
  • NOW YOU NEED TO RECOGNIZE THAT
  • 00:20:12.050 --> 00:20:13.250
  • YOUR SPOUSE IS INCLUDED IN
  • 00:20:13.250 --> 00:20:16.150
  • "THE BRETHREN."
  • 00:20:16.240 --> 00:20:19.240
  • GOD CONSIDERS HER YOUR EQUAL.
  • 00:20:19.240 --> 00:20:22.090
  • GOD CONSIDERS HIM YOUR EQUAL.
  • 00:20:22.090 --> 00:20:24.160
  • YOU SAY, WELL PASTOR, THERE'S
  • 00:20:24.160 --> 00:20:25.140
  • VERSES IN THE NEW TESTAMENT
  • 00:20:25.140 --> 00:20:26.170
  • THAT CALL THEM THE WEAKER
  • 00:20:26.170 --> 00:20:27.190
  • VESSEL.
  • 00:20:27.190 --> 00:20:28.120
  • THIS IS WHAT WE CALL
  • 00:20:28.120 --> 00:20:29.160
  • "ONTOLOGICAL EQUALS."
  • 00:20:29.160 --> 00:20:31.050
  • NOW THAT'S A BIG WORD.
  • 00:20:31.050 --> 00:20:32.100
  • BUT WHAT IT BASICALLY MEANS IS
  • 00:20:32.100 --> 00:20:34.020
  • THAT YOU ARE THE SAME BUT
  • 00:20:34.020 --> 00:20:36.030
  • YOU'RE DIFFERENT.
  • 00:20:36.030 --> 00:20:37.240
  • WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR VALUE IN
  • 00:20:37.240 --> 00:20:39.050
  • GOD'S EYES, YOU'RE THE SAME.
  • 00:20:39.050 --> 00:20:41.060
  • WHEN IT COMES TO HOW YOU WERE
  • 00:20:41.060 --> 00:20:42.070
  • CREATED TO EXIST, YOU'RE
  • 00:20:42.070 --> 00:20:43.230
  • DIFFERENT.
  • 00:20:43.230 --> 00:20:46.090
  • IN GOD'S EYES, HE SEES HER AS
  • 00:20:46.090 --> 00:20:48.200
  • YOUR SISTER IN CHRIST.
  • 00:20:48.200 --> 00:20:50.110
  • AND HE SEES HIM, YOUR SPOUSE,
  • 00:20:50.110 --> 00:20:52.120
  • AS YOUR BROTHER IN CHRIST.
  • 00:20:52.120 --> 00:20:53.210
  • THE REASON THAT I BRING THIS UP
  • 00:20:53.210 --> 00:20:54.240
  • IS BECAUSE I, AS A PASTOR, SEE

  • LOVE IS ALSO FOUND IN THE WORD
  • 00:21:59.000 --> 00:22:00.230

  • 00:22:00.230 --> 00:22:01.170
  • 1 CORINTHIANS 13, PAUL SAID IT

  • THIS WAY.

  • HE SAID: WITHOUT LOVE, I AM
  • 00:22:04.100 --> 00:22:07.020
  • NOTHING.
  • 00:22:07.020 --> 00:22:08.170
  • WITHOUT LOVE IN YOUR MARRIAGE,
  • 00:22:08.170 --> 00:22:09.250
  • YOUR MARRIAGE IS NOTHING.

  • BUT HE GETS TO THE KEY
  • 00:22:14.290 --> 00:22:16.040
  • INGREDIENT IN
  • 00:22:16.040 --> 00:22:17.010
  • 1 CORINTHIANS 13:5.

  • HE SAYS: LOVE DOES NOT SEEK ITS
  • 00:22:18.250 --> 00:22:21.190
  • OWN.
  • 00:22:21.190 --> 00:22:22.030
  • SAY THAT WITH ME, LOVE DOES NOT
  • 00:22:22.030 --> 00:22:24.070
  • SEEK ITS OWN.
  • 00:22:24.070 --> 00:22:25.220
  • DO YOU KNOW WHY WE HAVE SO
  • 00:22:25.220 --> 00:22:27.000
  • MUCH TROUBLE WITH MARRIAGE
  • 00:22:27.000 --> 00:22:28.050
  • RELATIONSHIP AND RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:22:28.050 --> 00:22:29.180
  • IN GENERAL THESE DAYS?
  • 00:22:29.180 --> 00:22:30.270
  • BECAUSE WE ARE CONSTANTLY
  • 00:22:30.270 --> 00:22:32.050
  • LOOKING OUT FOR NUMBER ONE.
  • 00:22:32.050 --> 00:22:34.000
  • AND WE'VE PUT OURSELVES AT THE
  • 00:22:34.000 --> 00:22:35.130
  • TOP OF THE LIST.
  • 00:22:35.130 --> 00:22:37.110
  • WE SEEK OUR OWN.
  • 00:22:37.110 --> 00:22:39.250
  • JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:22:39.250 --> 00:22:40.190
  • WHO IS OUR EXAMPLE,
  • 00:22:40.190 --> 00:22:41.280
  • HE VERY CLEARLY SAID:
  • 00:22:41.280 --> 00:22:43.070
  • EVEN THE SON OF MAN DID NOT
  • 00:22:43.070 --> 00:22:44.170
  • COME TO BE SERVED BUT TO SERVE.
  • 00:22:44.170 --> 00:22:46.160
  • HE DIDN'T SEEK HIS OWN; HE
  • 00:22:46.160 --> 00:22:47.260
  • SERVED MANY.
  • 00:22:47.260 --> 00:22:49.030
  • AND YET, WE SEEK OUR OWN, WHICH
  • 00:22:49.030 --> 00:22:50.220
  • GETS TO BE A BARRIER WHEN IT
  • 00:22:50.220 --> 00:22:52.240
  • COMES TO LOVE.
  • 00:22:52.240 --> 00:22:55.140
  • WE'VE BECOME THE PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:22:55.140 --> 00:22:56.020
  • PAUL DESCRIBED IN THE BOOK OF
  • 00:22:56.020 --> 00:22:57.200
  • 2 TIMOTHY WHEN HE SAID WE WOULD
  • 00:22:57.200 --> 00:22:59.050
  • BECOME LOVERS OF OURSELVES.
  • 00:22:59.280 --> 00:23:03.000
  • WHEN YOU WATCH A MAN WALK OUT
  • 00:23:03.000 --> 00:23:04.130
  • ON A MARRIAGE AFTER 15 YEARS
  • 00:23:04.130 --> 00:23:06.080
  • AND THREE KIDS, HE DID IT
  • 00:23:06.080 --> 00:23:08.020
  • BECAUSE HE LOVED HIMSELF MORE
  • 00:23:08.020 --> 00:23:09.220
  • THAN HE LOVED THE FAMILY.
  • 00:23:09.220 --> 00:23:11.230
  • WHEN YOU SEE A MOTHER, WHO
  • 00:23:11.230 --> 00:23:12.250
  • WILL CONSIDER HER CHILDREN A
  • 00:23:12.250 --> 00:23:14.060
  • HINDRANCE TO HER CAREER AND AN
  • 00:23:14.060 --> 00:23:16.080
  • INCONVENIENCE INSTEAD OF AN
  • 00:23:16.080 --> 00:23:18.120
  • INHERITANCE OF THE LORD,
  • 00:23:18.120 --> 00:23:19.250
  • YOU SEE SOMEONE WHO CONSIDERS
  • 00:23:19.250 --> 00:23:21.100
  • HERSELF MORE THAN SHE CONSIDERS
  • 00:23:21.100 --> 00:23:23.240
  • HER FAMILY.
  • 00:23:23.240 --> 00:23:25.270
  • THIS IS WHY "IRRECONCILABLE
  • 00:23:25.270 --> 00:23:27.150
  • DIFFERENCES" HAS BECOME A
  • 00:23:27.150 --> 00:23:29.020
  • HOUSEHOLD WORD RATHER THAN
  • 00:23:29.020 --> 00:23:31.040
  • "WHAT GOD HAS JOINED TOGETHER,
  • 00:23:31.040 --> 00:23:32.250
  • LET NO MAN PUT ASUNDER."
  • 00:23:32.250 --> 00:23:34.180
  • WE USE PHRASES LIKE,
  • 00:23:34.180 --> 00:23:35.220
  • "WE JUST GREW APART."
  • 00:23:35.220 --> 00:23:37.000
  • NO, YOU DIDN'T JUST GROW APART;
  • 00:23:37.000 --> 00:23:38.210
  • YOU GREW DEEPER IN LOVE WITH
  • 00:23:38.210 --> 00:23:40.010
  • YOU THAN YOU GREW DEEPER IN
  • 00:23:40.010 --> 00:23:41.190
  • LOVE WITH THEM.
  • 00:23:42.280 --> 00:23:45.280
  • WE CANNOT LOVE OURSELVES AND
  • 00:23:45.280 --> 00:23:47.270
  • FULFILL WHAT THE BIBLICAL
  • 00:23:47.270 --> 00:23:49.020
  • DEFINITION OF LOVE IS.
  • 00:23:49.020 --> 00:23:51.100
  • THIS IS WHY JESUS SAID: LOVE
  • 00:23:51.100 --> 00:23:53.120
  • ONE ANOTHER AS I HAVE LOVED YOU.
  • 00:23:56.020 --> 00:23:59.020
  • HOW DID JESUS LOVE US?
  • 00:23:59.020 --> 00:24:00.140
  • HE LOVED US, FIRST AND FOREMOST,
  • 00:24:00.140 --> 00:24:02.070
  • COMPLETELY.
  • 00:24:02.070 --> 00:24:03.290
  • JESUS LOVES YOU WITH ALL OF
  • 00:24:03.290 --> 00:24:06.110
  • YOUR FAULTS.
  • 00:24:06.110 --> 00:24:07.280
  • UNDERSTANDING EVERYTHING THERE
  • 00:24:07.280 --> 00:24:09.150
  • IS TO KNOW ABOUT YOU,
  • 00:24:09.150 --> 00:24:11.000
  • KNOWING WHAT YOU DESERVE,
  • 00:24:11.000 --> 00:24:12.190
  • KNOWING WHAT YOU HAVE NOT
  • 00:24:12.190 --> 00:24:13.240
  • EARNED, KNOWING ALL THERE
  • 00:24:13.240 --> 00:24:15.170
  • IS TO KNOW, HE STILL LOVES YOU.
  • 00:24:16.260 --> 00:24:19.260
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WHILE WE
  • 00:24:19.260 --> 00:24:21.020
  • WERE YET SINNERS, CHRIST DIED
  • 00:24:21.020 --> 00:24:23.080
  • FOR US.
  • 00:24:23.080 --> 00:24:23.260
  • WHEN WE WEREN'T LOVING, HE
  • 00:24:23.260 --> 00:24:25.170
  • WAS WILLING TO GO ALL THE WAY
  • 00:24:25.170 --> 00:24:27.140
  • TO SHOW HIS LOVE,
  • 00:24:27.140 --> 00:24:29.000
  • AND HE DIED FOR US.
  • 00:24:29.000 --> 00:24:31.070
  • THIS SAME LOVE NEEDS TO BE
  • 00:24:31.070 --> 00:24:32.150
  • ATTRIBUTED IN THE MARRIAGE
  • 00:24:32.150 --> 00:24:33.170
  • RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:24:33.170 --> 00:24:35.110
  • OFTEN TIMES, PEOPLE COME TO THE
  • 00:24:35.110 --> 00:24:36.190
  • CHURCH, AND THEY SAY, WELL
  • 00:24:36.190 --> 00:24:37.170
  • PASTOR, I JUST CAN'T.
  • 00:24:37.170 --> 00:24:38.270
  • I CAN'T LOVE MY SPOUSE.
  • 00:24:38.270 --> 00:24:40.080
  • I CAN'T LOVE MY HUSBAND.
  • 00:24:40.080 --> 00:24:41.220
  • I CAN'T LOVE MY WIFE.
  • 00:24:41.220 --> 00:24:43.030
  • OR THEY PUT A CONDITION ON IT,
  • 00:24:43.030 --> 00:24:44.160
  • I'LL LOVE THEM WHEN...
  • 00:24:44.160 --> 00:24:46.250
  • I'LL LOVE THEM WHEN THEY GET A
  • 00:24:46.250 --> 00:24:47.260
  • BETTER ATTITUDE.
  • 00:24:47.260 --> 00:24:48.220
  • I'LL LOVE THEM WHEN THEY START
  • 00:24:48.220 --> 00:24:49.260
  • TO TREAT ME WELL.
  • 00:24:49.260 --> 00:24:50.280
  • I'LL LOVE THEM WHEN, WHEN,
  • 00:24:50.280 --> 00:24:52.180
  • WHEN, WHEN...
  • 00:24:52.180 --> 00:24:54.050
  • AND THE TRUTH IS YOU MAY HAVE
  • 00:24:54.050 --> 00:24:55.120
  • SOME VERY LEGITIMATE NEEDS IN
  • 00:24:55.120 --> 00:24:57.040
  • THAT MARRIAGE, AND YOU MAY HAVE
  • 00:24:57.040 --> 00:24:58.200
  • SOME VERY SERIOUS THINGS THAT
  • 00:24:58.200 --> 00:25:00.150
  • NEED TO BE WORKED ON.
  • 00:25:00.150 --> 00:25:01.180
  • BUT THE POINT IS IF YOU'RE
  • 00:25:01.180 --> 00:25:02.250
  • GOING TO LOVE LIKE GOD LOVED,
  • 00:25:02.250 --> 00:25:04.180
  • IF HE LOVED YOU WHEN YOU
  • 00:25:04.180 --> 00:25:06.000
  • WEREN'T RIGHT, THEN YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:25:06.000 --> 00:25:07.080
  • TO LOVE THEM WHEN THEY'RE NOT
  • 00:25:07.080 --> 00:25:09.020
  • RIGHT, BECAUSE THIS KIND OF
  • 00:25:09.040 --> 00:25:12.040
  • LOVE IS A HEALING KIND OF LOVE.
  • 00:25:13.030 --> 00:25:16.030
  • THIS KIND OF LOVE IS
  • 00:25:16.030 --> 00:25:17.010
  • SACRIFICIAL.
  • 00:25:17.010 --> 00:25:18.250
  • SACRIFICIAL LOVE MAKES ALL
  • 00:25:18.250 --> 00:25:20.280
  • THINGS POSSIBLE.
  • 00:25:20.280 --> 00:25:23.250
  • SACRIFICIAL LOVE IS BUILT ON
  • 00:25:23.250 --> 00:25:26.170
  • THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:25:26.170 --> 00:25:27.220
  • PSALM 127:1, IT SAYS: UNLESS
  • 00:25:27.220 --> 00:25:30.080
  • THE LORD BUILD THE HOUSE, THEY
  • 00:25:30.080 --> 00:25:31.280
  • LABOR IN VAIN WHO BUILD IT.
  • 00:25:32.000 --> 00:25:35.000
  • YOU JUST HEARD A TESTIMONY FROM
  • 00:25:35.000 --> 00:25:36.130
  • A COUPLE THAT WAS TRYING TO
  • 00:25:36.130 --> 00:25:37.210
  • BUILD THEIR HOUSE, THEIR
  • 00:25:37.210 --> 00:25:38.250
  • MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIP, WITHOUT

  • THE WORD OF GOD IN IT.
  • 00:25:40.040 --> 00:25:41.120
  • BUT WHENEVER THEY SURRENDERED
  • 00:25:41.120 --> 00:25:42.150
  • THEIR LIVES TO CHRIST,
  • 00:25:42.150 --> 00:25:43.230
  • THEY BEGAN TO GROW IN HIS WORD.
  • 00:25:43.230 --> 00:25:45.180
  • AND THEN THEY BUILT THEIR
  • 00:25:45.180 --> 00:25:46.170
  • MARRIAGE UPON HIS WORD.
  • 00:25:46.170 --> 00:25:48.110
