  • (vibrant music)
  • 00:00:04.586 --> 00:00:07.222
  • I'm Father Cedric Pisegna, Iwelcome you to the program.
  • 00:00:15.998 --> 00:00:19.435
  • I wanna proclaim to apersonal relationship
  • 00:00:19.435 --> 00:00:22.204
  • with Jesus Christ.
  • 00:00:22.204 --> 00:00:23.739
  • This is part of my series,
  • 00:00:23.739 --> 00:00:25.274
  • Through him, Withhim, and In him.
  • 00:00:25.274 --> 00:00:28.410
  • I wanna share this fromthe gospel of Matthew,
  • 00:00:28.410 --> 00:00:31.680
  • and this is chapter 11.
  • 00:00:31.680 --> 00:00:34.083
  • "Come to me all you wholabor and are heavy burdened,
  • 00:00:35.451 --> 00:00:39.988
  • "and I will give you rest.
  • 00:00:40.856 --> 00:00:42.257
  • "Take my yoke uponyou and learn from me
  • 00:00:42.257 --> 00:00:45.294
  • "for I am gentleand humble of heart.
  • 00:00:45.294 --> 00:00:48.831
  • "You will find restfor your souls,
  • 00:00:48.831 --> 00:00:51.533
  • "for my yoke is easyand my burden is light."
  • 00:00:51.533 --> 00:00:55.871
  • This series is called Throughhim, With him, and In him.
  • 00:00:55.871 --> 00:00:59.241
  • Of course the him we'retalking about here is Jesus.
  • 00:00:59.241 --> 00:01:02.811
  • His last name is not Christ.
  • 00:01:02.811 --> 00:01:05.280
  • Christ is a Greek word thatmeans the anointed one.
  • 00:01:05.280 --> 00:01:09.485
  • Because He lives in us,we too are anointed.
  • 00:01:09.485 --> 00:01:13.489
  • We're anointed withthe Holy Spirit,
  • 00:01:13.489 --> 00:01:15.891
  • we're anointed with God's favor,
  • 00:01:15.891 --> 00:01:18.193
  • and when you think aboutwhat the word anointed means,
  • 00:01:18.193 --> 00:01:21.029
  • think about being smearedwith some type of a vapal rub
  • 00:01:21.029 --> 00:01:26.034
  • or something like that,this grace, this blessing.
  • 00:01:27.469 --> 00:01:31.473
  • So Jeuss is the anointed onethat was being waited for
  • 00:01:31.473 --> 00:01:35.410
  • for all those ages.
  • 00:01:35.410 --> 00:01:36.778
  • He is the Christ.
  • 00:01:36.778 --> 00:01:38.947
  • When you think about it,
  • 00:01:38.947 --> 00:01:40.949
  • Jesus has been themost written about,
  • 00:01:40.949 --> 00:01:43.852
  • books are everywhere, andI've written one, too,
  • 00:01:43.852 --> 00:01:46.555
  • called, "Come Encounter Jesus."
  • 00:01:46.555 --> 00:01:48.757
  • He has had moviesdone on his life,
  • 00:01:48.757 --> 00:01:53.762
  • plays have beenenacted about Jesus,
  • 00:01:54.897 --> 00:01:57.933
  • He's the most controversialfigure who's ever lived.
  • 00:01:57.933 --> 00:02:01.870
  • People are alwaystrying to understand
  • 00:02:01.870 --> 00:02:04.106
  • who exactly he wast, and so Ijust wanted to share with you
  • 00:02:04.106 --> 00:02:09.077
  • that you can know,not just about him,
  • 00:02:10.245 --> 00:02:12.548
  • but you can know him,
  • 00:02:14.016 --> 00:02:15.184
  • and you can know himin a personal way.
  • 00:02:16.351 --> 00:02:18.587
  • I grew up Catholic andbaptized as an infant,
  • 00:02:18.587 --> 00:02:21.590
  • confirmed in the eighth grade.
  • 00:02:21.590 --> 00:02:23.926
  • I always heard about himbut never really knew
  • 00:02:23.926 --> 00:02:26.328
  • that you could know,and so I'm gonna try
  • 00:02:26.328 --> 00:02:29.131
  • to break that open.
  • 00:02:29.131 --> 00:02:30.399
  • People write me and theytell me, "Father Cedric
  • 00:02:30.399 --> 00:02:32.267
  • "we like your programsbecause you proclaim
  • 00:02:32.267 --> 00:02:34.002
  • "a personal relationshipwith Jesus Christ,"
  • 00:02:34.002 --> 00:02:36.338
  • and that's a word that'skinda thrown around,
  • 00:02:36.338 --> 00:02:38.273
  • or a phrase that'sthrown around,
  • 00:02:38.273 --> 00:02:39.775
  • so I'm really gonna try tobreak that open for you,
  • 00:02:39.775 --> 00:02:41.810
  • so you can understandwhat that means.
  • 00:02:41.810 --> 00:02:43.812
  • And yes, that's one of thegoals of Live With Passion,
  • 00:02:43.812 --> 00:02:47.049
  • that you can have a personalrelationship with Jesus Christ.
  • 00:02:47.049 --> 00:02:51.153
  • I didn't know I could have that.
  • 00:02:51.153 --> 00:02:52.854
  • It totally revolutionized mylife, it really changed me.
  • 00:02:52.854 --> 00:02:57.859
  • Some things happened to me inmy teen years, some things.
  • 00:02:59.294 --> 00:03:01.797
  • When I talk about how Jesuswas depicted in these movies,
  • 00:03:01.797 --> 00:03:05.133
  • and these plays, forexample, I saw a movie
  • 00:03:05.133 --> 00:03:08.103
  • by Franco Zeffirellicalled "Jesus of Nazareth".
  • 00:03:08.103 --> 00:03:11.406
  • It first appeared in 1977.
  • 00:03:11.406 --> 00:03:13.508
  • Now this is a time whenI wasn't going to church.
  • 00:03:13.508 --> 00:03:17.045
  • I just happened to tune in.
  • 00:03:17.045 --> 00:03:18.313
  • It was Easter time,and I was so struck
  • 00:03:18.313 --> 00:03:20.549
  • by the blessing that Jesus had.
  • 00:03:20.549 --> 00:03:23.185
  • For example, when he showsup on the shore of Galilee,
  • 00:03:23.185 --> 00:03:27.689
  • he sees these fishermen there.
  • 00:03:27.689 --> 00:03:29.424
  • Imagine how charismatiche must have been.
  • 00:03:29.424 --> 00:03:31.727
  • He sees these fishermen andhe says, "Come, follow me,"
  • 00:03:31.727 --> 00:03:33.962
  • and it says immediately,they left their nets,
  • 00:03:33.962 --> 00:03:38.667
  • their father, theirbusiness, the whole deal,
  • 00:03:38.667 --> 00:03:41.103
  • and they followed him.
  • 00:03:41.103 --> 00:03:42.571
  • What kind of a man wasthis that these fishermen,
  • 00:03:42.571 --> 00:03:45.841
  • tax collector, samething, prostitutes.
  • 00:03:45.841 --> 00:03:49.845
  • He has this whole wave of people
  • 00:03:49.845 --> 00:03:52.514
  • that would drop everythingjust to follow him,
  • 00:03:52.514 --> 00:03:55.150
  • and imagine how charismatic
  • 00:03:55.150 --> 00:03:57.019
  • and attractive he must havebeen, maybe physically,
  • 00:03:57.019 --> 00:04:01.056
  • but definitely hiswords and his persona,
  • 00:04:01.056 --> 00:04:04.693
  • and what he taught.
  • 00:04:04.693 --> 00:04:06.628
  • I have, hanging abovemy desk in my office,
  • 00:04:06.628 --> 00:04:09.931
  • actually my bedroomis my office,
  • 00:04:09.931 --> 00:04:12.167
  • I have a portrait byHook, Hook is the artist.
  • 00:04:12.167 --> 00:04:16.405
  • Shows a very dignified Jesus,
  • 00:04:16.405 --> 00:04:18.373
  • and I really like it becauseit's a very attractive Jesus,
  • 00:04:18.373 --> 00:04:21.209
  • and one that I believethat He was like,
  • 00:04:21.209 --> 00:04:24.313
  • very charismatic, veryattractive and just
  • 00:04:24.313 --> 00:04:27.816
  • you're drawn to him, tohis purity, to his beauty.
  • 00:04:27.816 --> 00:04:31.486
  • I don't know if you knowthis but I heard that
  • 00:04:31.486 --> 00:04:33.689
  • Leonardo DaVinci painteda portrait of Jesus.
  • 00:04:33.689 --> 00:04:36.992
  • This is the famousLeonardo DaVinci.
  • 00:04:36.992 --> 00:04:39.661
  • He painted a portraitof Jesus called
  • 00:04:39.661 --> 00:04:41.897
  • The Savior of the World.
  • 00:04:41.897 --> 00:04:43.665
  • Jesus's right hand isextended in blessing.
  • 00:04:44.966 --> 00:04:48.303
  • In his left hand, he'sholing this giant orb
  • 00:04:48.303 --> 00:04:51.573
  • standing for the world.
  • 00:04:51.573 --> 00:04:54.176
  • It was auctioned at an auction,
  • 00:04:54.176 --> 00:04:57.179
  • and it gained thehighest price ever
  • 00:04:57.179 --> 00:05:00.716
  • for something that had beenauctioned for a piece of art.
  • 00:05:00.716 --> 00:05:04.853
  • And I rememberreading about this,
  • 00:05:04.853 --> 00:05:06.822
  • and they talked abouthow, at the auction,
  • 00:05:06.822 --> 00:05:09.024
  • people were bidding, we'retalking millions of dollars,
  • 00:05:09.024 --> 00:05:13.729
  • and at every bid it wouldgo up another two million,
  • 00:05:13.729 --> 00:05:17.999
  • and people would gasp, andthe another five million,
  • 00:05:17.999 --> 00:05:20.502
  • and people would gasp.
  • 00:05:20.502 --> 00:05:22.304
  • Every time that somebodybid on this painting,
  • 00:05:22.304 --> 00:05:25.374
  • we're talkingmillions of dollars.
  • 00:05:25.374 --> 00:05:26.942
  • It was sold for $450.3million dollars.
  • 00:05:26.942 --> 00:05:31.947
  • The highest piece ofartwork ever auctioned,
  • 00:05:33.782 --> 00:05:38.120
  • $450 million dollars.
  • 00:05:38.120 --> 00:05:41.089
  • What does that tell me?
  • 00:05:41.089 --> 00:05:42.290
  • It tells me thatJesus is invaluable.
  • 00:05:42.290 --> 00:05:46.995
  • You can't put a priceon Jesus Christ.
  • 00:05:48.096 --> 00:05:51.533
  • He is beyond value, if you will.
  • 00:05:51.533 --> 00:05:56.538
  • He is of inestimable value.
  • 00:05:57.973 --> 00:06:01.576
  • What price can you puton what he came to bring,
  • 00:06:01.576 --> 00:06:05.814
  • salvation, eternal life?
  • 00:06:05.814 --> 00:06:07.816
  • Eternal life!
  • 00:06:07.816 --> 00:06:09.551
  • A new quality of life now,
  • 00:06:09.551 --> 00:06:11.787
  • as well as the quantityof forever and ever.
  • 00:06:11.787 --> 00:06:16.725
  • So, at auction $450million dollars,
  • 00:06:16.725 --> 00:06:21.363
  • yes it was Leonardo DaVinci,and that was important,
  • 00:06:21.363 --> 00:06:23.865
  • but it's the factthat it was Jesus.
  • 00:06:23.865 --> 00:06:27.002
  • That's what I really wannatry to instill in you
  • 00:06:27.002 --> 00:06:29.571
  • in this program, that thevalue of Jesus of Nazareth,
  • 00:06:29.571 --> 00:06:34.409
  • the life-changing worthof the Son of God.
  • 00:06:34.409 --> 00:06:39.414
  • This is exactly whatthe gospels try to do,
  • 00:06:40.582 --> 00:06:42.717
  • the four gospels, of course,Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
  • 00:06:42.717 --> 00:06:46.655
  • They're not so much biographies
  • 00:06:46.655 --> 00:06:51.092
  • with exact pictures ofwhat he looked like,
  • 00:06:51.092 --> 00:06:56.097
  • or exact time tablesof what he did,
  • 00:06:57.232 --> 00:06:59.601
  • although there is some type ofa linear time table in there.
  • 00:06:59.601 --> 00:07:03.905
  • There are theological documents.
  • 00:07:03.905 --> 00:07:06.308
  • They all differ from each other.
  • 00:07:06.308 --> 00:07:07.776
  • They're similar in some ways,
  • 00:07:07.776 --> 00:07:10.045
  • but they differ from each other,
  • 00:07:10.045 --> 00:07:11.546
  • and the way I have heard itput to me by scholars is,
  • 00:07:11.546 --> 00:07:14.816
  • and I agree with this,they're all portraits.
  • 00:07:14.816 --> 00:07:17.752
  • They're portraits of Jesus.
  • 00:07:17.752 --> 00:07:19.221
  • For example, Matthew givesus a portrait of a new Moses.
  • 00:07:19.221 --> 00:07:23.959
  • Jesus goes to themountain top and teaches,
  • 00:07:25.293 --> 00:07:27.596
  • Jesus, a great teacherof the Gospel of Matthew.
  • 00:07:27.596 --> 00:07:30.098
  • Matthew has so muchteaching, the Beatitudes,
  • 00:07:30.098 --> 00:07:33.502
  • and these parables.
  • 00:07:33.502 --> 00:07:35.604
  • So that's one portrait.
  • 00:07:35.604 --> 00:07:37.305
  • Then we have Mark,the shortest gospel,
  • 00:07:37.305 --> 00:07:40.108
  • talking about Jesus,and he begins by saying,
  • 00:07:40.108 --> 00:07:42.878
  • "Jesus Christ the son of God."
  • 00:07:42.878 --> 00:07:46.648
  • That's his purpose.
  • 00:07:46.648 --> 00:07:48.183
  • He's trying to convince usthrough Jesus's miracles,
  • 00:07:48.183 --> 00:07:51.586
  • through his teaching, throughwhat he did and who he was,
  • 00:07:51.586 --> 00:07:54.656
  • that Jesus is the son of God,
  • 00:07:54.656 --> 00:07:56.258
  • so that by believing, wecan have eternal life.
  • 00:07:56.258 --> 00:07:59.494
  • Then the Gospel ofLuke, a long gospel,
  • 00:08:00.662 --> 00:08:02.998
  • it's a two volume set, Lukeand the Acts of the Apostles.
  • 00:08:02.998 --> 00:08:07.302
  • Luke presents avery prophetic Jesus
  • 00:08:07.302 --> 00:08:11.239
  • who reaches out to themarginalized and the poor,
  • 00:08:11.239 --> 00:08:14.543
  • those who are on theperiphery, and very prophetic,
  • 00:08:14.543 --> 00:08:18.914
  • in his dying, hecommits himself to God,
  • 00:08:18.914 --> 00:08:23.018
  • and saves the thiefbeing killed with him,
  • 00:08:23.018 --> 00:08:27.622
  • reaching out to the poor,reaching out to women
  • 00:08:27.622 --> 00:08:30.425
  • who were on the peripheryat that time of life.
  • 00:08:30.425 --> 00:08:32.661
  • And then, of course,John, very divine gospel,
  • 00:08:32.661 --> 00:08:37.365
  • Jesus the Son of God,all those I am sayings,
  • 00:08:37.365 --> 00:08:40.735
  • the I am greatclaim to divinity.
  • 00:08:40.735 --> 00:08:44.639
  • At the end of the Gospelof John, John says,
  • 00:08:44.639 --> 00:08:46.708
  • "These things are writtenthat you may believe
  • 00:08:46.708 --> 00:08:49.377
  • "that Jesus is the Sonof God and may have life
  • 00:08:49.377 --> 00:08:51.980
  • "in his name."
  • 00:08:51.980 --> 00:08:53.982
  • So this is what thegospels are trying to do.
  • 00:08:53.982 --> 00:08:56.918
  • They're trying to assureus that Jesus wasn't
  • 00:08:56.918 --> 00:09:00.889
  • just some historical personage,some person from the past,
  • 00:09:00.889 --> 00:09:05.894
  • but that he is the Son of God,divine, risen from the dead,
  • 00:09:07.329 --> 00:09:11.499
  • and that because of him,and this series is about
  • 00:09:13.335 --> 00:09:16.771
  • being through him,with him, and in him,
  • 00:09:16.771 --> 00:09:19.307
  • because of Jesus,the anointed one,
  • 00:09:19.307 --> 00:09:22.911
  • we can have eternallife, salvation,
  • 00:09:22.911 --> 00:09:27.215
  • being filled withthe Holy Spirit.
  • 00:09:27.215 --> 00:09:29.651
  • He was what'scalled an itinerant,
  • 00:09:29.651 --> 00:09:31.486
  • and I know that becauseI'm an itinerant.
  • 00:09:31.486 --> 00:09:34.322
  • As a Catholic priest I travel.
  • 00:09:34.322 --> 00:09:36.191
  • The word itinerantmeans to be a wanderer.
  • 00:09:36.191 --> 00:09:39.127
  • I travel from church to churchand I preach the gospel,
  • 00:09:39.127 --> 00:09:42.697
  • and I draw people to a deeperrelationship with Jesus.
  • 00:09:42.697 --> 00:09:46.534
  • And on television, Iproclaim the gospel,
  • 00:09:46.534 --> 00:09:49.037
  • and on radio,trying to reach out,
  • 00:09:49.037 --> 00:09:51.506
  • especially to thoseon the periphery,
  • 00:09:51.506 --> 00:09:53.975
  • so that they, too can believe,
  • 00:09:53.975 --> 00:09:55.543
  • because it's by believingthat he's the Son of God,
  • 00:09:55.543 --> 00:09:58.713
  • by committing your life tohim, and surrendering to him,
  • 00:09:58.713 --> 00:10:01.916
  • that actually this newlife, this current of grace.
  • 00:10:01.916 --> 00:10:05.587
  • I did a series years agocalled The Rush of Grace,
  • 00:10:05.587 --> 00:10:09.557
  • this rush of grace can be yours,
  • 00:10:09.557 --> 00:10:11.192
  • the free gift of God thatcomes through Christ.
  • 00:10:11.192 --> 00:10:14.763
  • So, if gospels are soimportant, Jesus on the move,
  • 00:10:14.763 --> 00:10:19.768
  • and why is he on themove as a preacher?
  • 00:10:21.169 --> 00:10:22.737
  • It's because his job descriptionis to reach to to the poor,
  • 00:10:22.737 --> 00:10:27.308
  • to those who are blind, tothose who are in prison.
  • 00:10:27.308 --> 00:10:31.846
  • In other words, Jesuscame for you and me.
  • 00:10:31.846 --> 00:10:35.116
  • He came to bring all of us life,
  • 00:10:35.116 --> 00:10:37.686
  • anyone who would accept him,the Gospel of John says,
  • 00:10:37.686 --> 00:10:40.989
  • "To those who wouldbelieve in his name,
  • 00:10:40.989 --> 00:10:43.091
  • "he gave the power," that'sthe word in the Greek,
  • 00:10:43.091 --> 00:10:46.194
  • "the power to becomechildren of God," wow.
  • 00:10:46.194 --> 00:10:51.199
  • And so he told theparable about a shepherd
  • 00:10:52.333 --> 00:10:53.768
  • who left the 99 insearch of the lost sheep.
  • 00:10:53.768 --> 00:10:58.673
  • We all have heard that parable.
  • 00:11:00.575 --> 00:11:02.477
  • You see, Jesus isthe good shepherd,
  • 00:11:02.477 --> 00:11:05.313
  • and he knows exactlywhat he's doing.
  • 00:11:05.313 --> 00:11:08.483
  • He's willing to leavethose who are believers
  • 00:11:08.483 --> 00:11:11.352
  • and are safe and search.
  • 00:11:11.352 --> 00:11:14.089
  • In fact, I heard oneJewish scholar said,
  • 00:11:14.089 --> 00:11:16.691
  • "The number one thing thatJesus has brought to religion
  • 00:11:16.691 --> 00:11:20.228
  • "is the fact that we havea God who searches for us."
  • 00:11:20.228 --> 00:11:25.166
  • That's exactly whatI want to happen
  • 00:11:25.166 --> 00:11:27.802
  • through thesetelevision programs.
  • 00:11:27.802 --> 00:11:29.571
  • I believe that God issearching for people
  • 00:11:31.172 --> 00:11:33.108
  • through these programs.
  • 00:11:33.108 --> 00:11:34.442
  • You have tuned into this program
  • 00:11:35.610 --> 00:11:37.946
  • and you've stayedthere with me so far,
  • 00:11:37.946 --> 00:11:41.349
  • so you must be intrigued.
  • 00:11:41.349 --> 00:11:42.784
  • God must be drawing you.
  • 00:11:43.718 --> 00:11:45.653
  • And Jesus said, "When Iam lifted up on the cross,
  • 00:11:47.088 --> 00:11:48.790
  • "I will draw people, I willattract people, like a magnet,"
  • 00:11:48.790 --> 00:11:52.794
  • just like he didwith James, and John,
  • 00:11:52.794 --> 00:11:55.530
  • and Peter, andAndrew, and Matthew,
  • 00:11:55.530 --> 00:11:58.032
  • and so many others, Zacharias.
  • 00:11:58.032 --> 00:11:59.467
  • He drew them throughhis beautiful words
  • 00:11:59.467 --> 00:12:02.470
  • and charismatic personality.
  • 00:12:02.470 --> 00:12:04.806
  • "The gospel," Billy Graham said,
  • 00:12:04.806 --> 00:12:06.641
  • "is the power of God."
  • 00:12:06.641 --> 00:12:09.344
  • Just the simpleproclamation of the gospel,
  • 00:12:09.344 --> 00:12:11.813
  • it's the dynamite ofGod, the truth of God,
  • 00:12:11.813 --> 00:12:15.416
  • piercing through doubts,piercing through sin,
  • 00:12:15.416 --> 00:12:19.187
  • going beyond addictions,it's the power of God.
  • 00:12:19.187 --> 00:12:24.192
  • And so that's what Jesus cameto bring us, this new life,
  • 00:12:25.627 --> 00:12:27.896
  • and he searches for us.
  • 00:12:27.896 --> 00:12:29.964
  • Back in his time,women were outcasts.
  • 00:12:29.964 --> 00:12:33.935
  • In fact, some Jewishpeople even prayed,
  • 00:12:33.935 --> 00:12:35.904
  • thanking God that Goddidn't make them a woman.
  • 00:12:35.904 --> 00:12:39.240
  • That's how on theperiphery they were,
  • 00:12:39.240 --> 00:12:42.544
  • yet it was Mary Magdalene,
  • 00:12:42.544 --> 00:12:44.345
  • out of whom hecast seven demons,
  • 00:12:44.345 --> 00:12:46.147
  • who was the first oneto see the resurrection,
  • 00:12:46.147 --> 00:12:48.716
  • the resurrected Jesus.
  • 00:12:48.716 --> 00:12:50.552
  • She became the apostleto the apostles.
  • 00:12:50.552 --> 00:12:53.288
  • So God has a way of turningthe world upside down.
  • 00:12:53.288 --> 00:12:56.090
  • In fact, that's what theysaid about the apostles,
  • 00:12:56.090 --> 00:12:58.226
  • that the ones who haveturned the world upside down
  • 00:12:58.226 --> 00:13:00.962
  • are coming to us now.
  • 00:13:00.962 --> 00:13:02.931
  • And by the way, whenJesus chose his 12,
  • 00:13:02.931 --> 00:13:06.234
  • he appointed them, hecalled them apostles.
  • 00:13:06.234 --> 00:13:10.071
  • He appointed them, firstof all, not to go out.
  • 00:13:10.071 --> 00:13:12.674
  • That's what the word apostlemeans, to be sent out.
  • 00:13:12.674 --> 00:13:14.576
  • He appointed them, first ofall, get this, to be with him.
  • 00:13:14.576 --> 00:13:19.581
  • That's what it meansto be an apostle.
  • 00:13:21.182 --> 00:13:22.884
  • This comes fromMark, chapter three,
  • 00:13:22.884 --> 00:13:24.452
  • it says that, "When Jesusappointed them to be apostles,
  • 00:13:24.452 --> 00:13:28.189
  • "he appointed themto be with him."
  • 00:13:28.189 --> 00:13:29.991
  • So, to be an apostle meansto be sent out, yeah,
  • 00:13:29.991 --> 00:13:32.093
  • but it means, first ofall, to be with Jesus.
  • 00:13:32.093 --> 00:13:35.330
  • That's what they said inthe Acts of the Apostles,
  • 00:13:35.330 --> 00:13:37.498
  • when the apostles weredoing all these miracles
  • 00:13:37.498 --> 00:13:39.567
  • and different things,that people said
  • 00:13:39.567 --> 00:13:41.236
  • they were recognizedbecause they knew that they
  • 00:13:41.236 --> 00:13:43.404
  • had been with Jesus.
  • 00:13:43.404 --> 00:13:45.139
  • So they, first of all, developeda relationship with Jesus,
  • 00:13:45.139 --> 00:13:48.209
  • then they went out.
  • 00:13:48.209 --> 00:13:50.144
  • That's exactly, I'ma religious priest,
  • 00:13:50.144 --> 00:13:52.747
  • we're called passion,as I point to my habit.
  • 00:13:52.747 --> 00:13:55.350
  • That's exactly what our founder,
  • 00:13:55.350 --> 00:13:56.851
  • St. Paul of the Cross saidthat, "Before we go out
  • 00:13:56.851 --> 00:13:59.587
  • "we spend time with Jesus inprayer, we get to know him,
  • 00:13:59.587 --> 00:14:04.359
  • "we learn about his teachings,
  • 00:14:04.359 --> 00:14:05.894
  • "we develop ourrelationship with him."
  • 00:14:05.894 --> 00:14:08.763
  • Otherwise, you can'tpresume to proclaim Christ.
  • 00:14:08.763 --> 00:14:11.065
  • You can't go out unlessyou know who he is
  • 00:14:11.065 --> 00:14:13.001
  • in this personalrelationship with Jesus.
  • 00:14:13.001 --> 00:14:16.070
  • I wanna share with you that Ihad two near death experiences
  • 00:14:16.070 --> 00:14:20.108
  • when I was 18, 19 yearsold, just as a teenager.
  • 00:14:20.108 --> 00:14:23.177
  • It was my conversion.
  • 00:14:23.177 --> 00:14:24.779
  • It was what totallyrevolutionized my life,
  • 00:14:24.779 --> 00:14:27.916
  • and in these neardeath experiences,
  • 00:14:27.916 --> 00:14:30.518
  • I call them that,because I believe I went
  • 00:14:30.518 --> 00:14:33.421
  • where we're allgonna go when we die,
  • 00:14:33.421 --> 00:14:34.856
  • and that's to the throne of God.
  • 00:14:34.856 --> 00:14:36.224
  • I experienced the lightand the glory of God,
  • 00:14:36.224 --> 00:14:38.893
  • and I felt Jesus put hisarm around my shoulder.
  • 00:14:38.893 --> 00:14:42.730
  • I will never forget this.
  • 00:14:42.730 --> 00:14:45.066
  • In that near death experience,and I had two of them,
  • 00:14:45.066 --> 00:14:47.468
  • and he did it both time,and that's the way Jesus is.
  • 00:14:47.468 --> 00:14:52.006
  • He said, "I no longer call youslaves, I call you friends."
  • 00:14:52.006 --> 00:14:57.011
  • So when we talk about a personalrelationship with Jesus,
  • 00:14:58.346 --> 00:15:01.015
  • that's exactly what it is.
  • 00:15:01.015 --> 00:15:02.450
  • It's friendship withhim, you get to know him,
  • 00:15:02.450 --> 00:15:06.621
  • you have intimacy with him.
  • 00:15:06.621 --> 00:15:09.457
  • You know what friends are,they're a person with whom
  • 00:15:09.457 --> 00:15:11.693
  • you feel comfortable,you can share, you talk,
  • 00:15:11.693 --> 00:15:15.363
  • you have good times together,
  • 00:15:15.363 --> 00:15:17.198
  • that's exactly the way Jesus is.
  • 00:15:17.198 --> 00:15:19.634
  • He's not just a statue,or a religious personage
  • 00:15:19.634 --> 00:15:24.639
  • from the past, somebodywho's harsh and mean.
  • 00:15:25.907 --> 00:15:30.511
  • He said, "Come tome all you who labor
  • 00:15:30.511 --> 00:15:33.481
  • "and are heavy burdened,and I will give you rest."
  • 00:15:33.481 --> 00:15:36.617
  • So I share what happened to me,
  • 00:15:36.617 --> 00:15:38.453
  • and that's the most sacred thingthat's ever happened to me,
  • 00:15:38.453 --> 00:15:40.989
  • something near anddear to my heart,
  • 00:15:40.989 --> 00:15:42.924
  • when he put his armaround my shoulder
  • 00:15:42.924 --> 00:15:44.726
  • in those near deathexperiences, and he said,
  • 00:15:44.726 --> 00:15:47.095
  • "I'll protect you."
  • 00:15:47.095 --> 00:15:48.997
  • I share that with youbecause I believe that
  • 00:15:48.997 --> 00:15:50.932
  • he's putting his arm aroundyour shoulder right now,
  • 00:15:50.932 --> 00:15:53.668
  • through this television program,
  • 00:15:53.668 --> 00:15:55.937
  • and he's saying, "Iwill protect you."
  • 00:15:55.937 --> 00:15:57.972
  • No matter whatyou're going through,
  • 00:15:57.972 --> 00:15:59.874
  • he's our protector, ourshepherd, our best friend.
  • 00:15:59.874 --> 00:16:04.879
  • And so, the apostlesspent time with him,
  • 00:16:06.080 --> 00:16:08.916
  • and first of allthey were with him,
  • 00:16:08.916 --> 00:16:11.019
  • and that's how theybecame apostles,
  • 00:16:11.019 --> 00:16:12.687
  • that's how they got to know him.
  • 00:16:12.687 --> 00:16:14.288
  • So, it's reallyimportant to understand
  • 00:16:14.288 --> 00:16:16.858
  • that Jesus wasn't sedentary.
  • 00:16:16.858 --> 00:16:19.527
  • He kept moving becausethat's the way he is.
  • 00:16:19.527 --> 00:16:23.431
  • His love is so great that,if you don't come to him,
  • 00:16:23.431 --> 00:16:26.968
  • he'll go to you (chuckling).
  • 00:16:26.968 --> 00:16:28.369
  • I received a letterfrom a person in prison.
  • 00:16:29.504 --> 00:16:32.206
  • Very telling, he said,"I regret my choices
  • 00:16:33.374 --> 00:16:37.412
  • "and my actions thatbrought me here,
  • 00:16:37.412 --> 00:16:39.947
  • "but I don't regretmy coming to prison,
  • 00:16:39.947 --> 00:16:42.884
  • "because coming toprison has allowed me
  • 00:16:42.884 --> 00:16:46.421
  • "the chance toreunite with Christ."
  • 00:16:46.421 --> 00:16:49.690
  • Wow, even in thedarkest, forsaken places,
  • 00:16:49.690 --> 00:16:54.695
  • even in the hardships, thedifficulties, and the trials,
  • 00:16:58.699 --> 00:17:01.836
  • even when you feel like
  • 00:17:02.703 --> 00:17:04.572
  • you're outside theperiphery of grace,
  • 00:17:04.572 --> 00:17:06.908
  • there's a chance toreunite with Jesus,
  • 00:17:08.443 --> 00:17:10.678
  • or to unite, for some of you,for the first time with Jesus.
  • 00:17:10.678 --> 00:17:14.115
  • This series is called ThroughHim, With Him, and In Him,
  • 00:17:14.115 --> 00:17:17.318
  • and it's all aboutconnecting with Christ.
  • 00:17:17.318 --> 00:17:22.323
  • Jesus said that he's thevine and we are the branches,
  • 00:17:23.691 --> 00:17:27.161
  • and unless we abide in him,
  • 00:17:27.161 --> 00:17:29.897
  • you know how a branchconnected to the vine
  • 00:17:29.897 --> 00:17:32.667
  • gets that sap, thatflow, that anointing,
  • 00:17:32.667 --> 00:17:35.303
  • as I talked about, theanointing of the holy spirit,
  • 00:17:35.303 --> 00:17:38.906
  • the anointing of favor,the anointing of grace.
  • 00:17:38.906 --> 00:17:42.944
  • And so, this is for, if it wasfor me, it's for everybody.
  • 00:17:42.944 --> 00:17:47.949
  • I'm nobody differentthan any of you,
  • 00:17:49.083 --> 00:17:50.318
  • and wow, did thischange my life,
  • 00:17:50.318 --> 00:17:52.453
  • this personal relationshipwith Jesus Christ.
  • 00:17:52.453 --> 00:17:56.057
  • Our latest two popesin the Catholic Church,
  • 00:17:56.057 --> 00:17:58.826
  • and by the way, sometimesthe Catholic Church
  • 00:17:58.826 --> 00:18:01.896
  • is preached against becauseit's very liturgical,
  • 00:18:01.896 --> 00:18:04.799
  • very ritualistic, butI have to tell you,
  • 00:18:04.799 --> 00:18:07.835
  • at its core, the CatholicChurch is all about Jesus,
  • 00:18:07.835 --> 00:18:12.673
  • and a personal relationshipwith Jesus Christ.
  • 00:18:12.673 --> 00:18:15.543
  • For example, when westart mass and we go in,
  • 00:18:15.543 --> 00:18:18.513
  • we kiss the altar, thealtar is a symbol of Christ,
  • 00:18:18.513 --> 00:18:21.816
  • and we kiss the gospel bookafter we proclaim the gospel.
  • 00:18:21.816 --> 00:18:25.019
  • The gospel is asymbol of Christ.
  • 00:18:25.019 --> 00:18:27.555
  • And we incense the congregation,
  • 00:18:27.555 --> 00:18:30.358
  • and we bow because Christlives in you, the congregation.
  • 00:18:30.358 --> 00:18:35.363
  • So the last couple ofpopes that we've had,
  • 00:18:36.564 --> 00:18:39.033
  • as I'm filming this, PopeBenedict XVI, for example,
  • 00:18:39.033 --> 00:18:43.804
  • he wrote a learnedthree volume set,
  • 00:18:43.804 --> 00:18:47.141
  • called "Jesus of Nazareth."
  • 00:18:47.141 --> 00:18:48.809
  • Remember what I told you,
  • 00:18:48.809 --> 00:18:50.278
  • Jesus has more books writtenabout him than anybody.
  • 00:18:50.278 --> 00:18:51.646
  • And I've read someof his writings,
  • 00:18:51.646 --> 00:18:55.016
  • this is Pope Benedict,and I have to tell you
  • 00:18:55.016 --> 00:18:57.952
  • it's very scholarly, buttrying to get to the roots
  • 00:18:57.952 --> 00:19:01.856
  • of who Jesus is, and gettingto know him in a personal way.
  • 00:19:01.856 --> 00:19:05.927
  • Pope Francis, he promulgatedan apostolic exhortation,
  • 00:19:05.927 --> 00:19:10.932
  • and it was called, "TheJoy of the Gospel,"
  • 00:19:12.066 --> 00:19:14.168
  • and he says, "I inviteall people everywhere
  • 00:19:14.168 --> 00:19:16.837
  • "to a personal relationshipwith Jesus Christ."
  • 00:19:16.837 --> 00:19:19.207
  • What I'm saying is thatat the highest level
  • 00:19:19.207 --> 00:19:21.709
  • of the CatholicChurch, the popes,
  • 00:19:21.709 --> 00:19:24.078
  • they talk about a personalrelationship with Jesus.
  • 00:19:25.513 --> 00:19:27.348
  • Of course, Pope Francisvery charismatic,
  • 00:19:27.348 --> 00:19:29.450
  • and into being baptizedin the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:19:29.450 --> 00:19:32.587
  • wanting all people everywhereto come to know Christ,
  • 00:19:32.587 --> 00:19:35.556
  • that's the genius behindmy television programs.
  • 00:19:35.556 --> 00:19:38.259
  • Whether you've been to churchor you don't go to church,
  • 00:19:40.161 --> 00:19:42.930
  • all of us, all of us can havesomething deep with Christ.
  • 00:19:42.930 --> 00:19:47.435
  • He is risen, risenfrom the dead.
  • 00:19:47.435 --> 00:19:50.071
  • He's not just a religiousperson from the past.
  • 00:19:50.071 --> 00:19:54.508
  • Risen from the dead.
  • 00:19:54.508 --> 00:19:56.877
  • And so this iscalled omnipresence.
  • 00:19:56.877 --> 00:20:00.481
  • It means that he canbe everywhere in theworld at one time.
  • 00:20:00.481 --> 00:20:05.453
  • Although there are7.8 billion people
  • 00:20:05.453 --> 00:20:08.789
  • on the face of theearth at this time,
  • 00:20:08.789 --> 00:20:10.958
  • he can be present,much like the sunlight,
  • 00:20:10.958 --> 00:20:14.095
  • to each and every one of them,
  • 00:20:14.095 --> 00:20:16.264
  • although the sunlightcan only be present
  • 00:20:16.264 --> 00:20:17.865
  • to about half thepeople at the same time.
  • 00:20:17.865 --> 00:20:20.368
  • But, Jesus has the ability,because he is the Son of God,
  • 00:20:20.368 --> 00:20:25.239
  • because he is God fromGod, and light from light,
  • 00:20:25.239 --> 00:20:27.642
  • that's right from our creed,true God from true God.
  • 00:20:27.642 --> 00:20:31.512
  • Perhaps you're in prison.
  • 00:20:31.512 --> 00:20:33.748
  • I just read a letter froma person who is in prison,
  • 00:20:33.748 --> 00:20:36.684
  • because my programs,through one of the networks,
  • 00:20:36.684 --> 00:20:39.553
  • are broadcast in prisons.
  • 00:20:39.553 --> 00:20:41.656
  • I want you to know thatprison may be a place
  • 00:20:41.656 --> 00:20:44.125
  • for you to find Jesus.
  • 00:20:44.125 --> 00:20:46.127
  • I found Jesus going to aplay, and watching a movie,
  • 00:20:46.127 --> 00:20:49.964
  • and reading books, andlistening to sermons
  • 00:20:49.964 --> 00:20:53.067
  • by Billy Graham and others,
  • 00:20:53.067 --> 00:20:55.236
  • and watching that beautifulmovie, "Jesus of Nazareth."
  • 00:20:55.236 --> 00:20:58.539
  • It's amazing howJesus searches for us,
  • 00:20:58.539 --> 00:21:02.410
  • and I'm hoping that you willsense him searching for you
  • 00:21:02.410 --> 00:21:05.446
  • right now through thistelevision program.
  • 00:21:05.446 --> 00:21:08.149
  • A personal relationshipwith Jesus.
  • 00:21:08.149 --> 00:21:09.784
  • What does that mean?
  • 00:21:09.784 --> 00:21:11.252
  • First of all, you havesome degree of friendship,
  • 00:21:11.252 --> 00:21:15.323
  • the word is intimacy.
  • 00:21:16.590 --> 00:21:18.793
  • Intimacy implies communion,or closeness, oneness.
  • 00:21:18.793 --> 00:21:23.130
  • Remember what I saidabout the apostles,
  • 00:21:23.130 --> 00:21:24.465
  • to be an apostleyou are with Jesus,
  • 00:21:24.465 --> 00:21:27.335
  • spending some time with him.
  • 00:21:27.335 --> 00:21:28.903
  • And believe it or not,
  • 00:21:28.903 --> 00:21:30.171
  • even though we weren'talive 2.000 years ago,
  • 00:21:30.171 --> 00:21:31.672
  • because of his risen presence,you can actually know him
  • 00:21:31.672 --> 00:21:35.343
  • as your shepherd, with youthrough thick and thin,
  • 00:21:35.343 --> 00:21:38.813
  • an inestimable value.
  • 00:21:38.813 --> 00:21:42.416
  • You can't put a price on that.
  • 00:21:42.416 --> 00:21:45.252
  • And then a personalrelationship with Jesus
  • 00:21:45.252 --> 00:21:48.255
  • means that you know thathe went to the cross
  • 00:21:48.255 --> 00:21:52.226
  • for you personally.
  • 00:21:52.226 --> 00:21:55.463
  • We're all very familiar withthe crucifixion of Jesus.
  • 00:21:55.463 --> 00:21:58.666
  • We've all seen the crucifix,
  • 00:21:58.666 --> 00:22:01.168
  • we've all sung about the cross,
  • 00:22:01.168 --> 00:22:04.038
  • and we all know it very well.
  • 00:22:04.038 --> 00:22:06.273
  • For God so loved the world
  • 00:22:06.273 --> 00:22:07.641
  • that he gave hisonly begotten son,
  • 00:22:07.641 --> 00:22:09.744
  • that whosoever believeswouldn't perish,
  • 00:22:09.744 --> 00:22:11.712
  • but have eternal life.
  • 00:22:11.712 --> 00:22:12.913
  • So we know that Godloves the world,
  • 00:22:12.913 --> 00:22:14.382
  • but I wanna instill in you,
  • 00:22:14.382 --> 00:22:16.083
  • and I wrote a bookcalled, "You are Loved,"
  • 00:22:16.083 --> 00:22:18.386
  • what I want to instill inyou is that you, personally,
  • 00:22:18.386 --> 00:22:21.522
  • are loved, by name, just asif you were the only one.
  • 00:22:21.522 --> 00:22:26.527
  • I took a pilgrimageover to Israel,
  • 00:22:27.661 --> 00:22:29.597
  • I led a group over there,and there's a place
  • 00:22:29.597 --> 00:22:31.999
  • called the Church ofthe Holy Sepulcher
  • 00:22:31.999 --> 00:22:34.201
  • that was built rightover this lime quarry,
  • 00:22:34.201 --> 00:22:37.004
  • limestone quarry, where webelieve the Hill of Calvary is,
  • 00:22:37.004 --> 00:22:42.009
  • and when I tookthe people there,
  • 00:22:43.177 --> 00:22:44.445
  • I remember we hadmass right there
  • 00:22:44.445 --> 00:22:46.247
  • by the Hill of Calvary,where Jesus was crucified,
  • 00:22:46.247 --> 00:22:50.184
  • and I remembertelling them, I said,
  • 00:22:50.184 --> 00:22:51.685
  • "We didn't come four or5.000 miles on pilgrimage
  • 00:22:51.685 --> 00:22:54.355
  • "just to see sights,and to feel stones,
  • 00:22:54.355 --> 00:22:57.992
  • "and to just bein the Holy Land.
  • 00:22:57.992 --> 00:23:00.261
  • "I wanna make sure that youknow Jesus is your savior,"
  • 00:23:00.261 --> 00:23:03.097
  • and here we are at Golgotha,
  • 00:23:03.097 --> 00:23:05.199
  • and we all surrenderedour life to Christ.
  • 00:23:05.199 --> 00:23:07.868
  • So that's how you have apersonal relationship with him,
  • 00:23:07.868 --> 00:23:10.504
  • you know that he diedfor you personally.
  • 00:23:10.504 --> 00:23:13.107
  • And then, thirdarea, first of all
  • 00:23:13.107 --> 00:23:16.110
  • you have intimacy with him,
  • 00:23:16.110 --> 00:23:18.279
  • and you know that he diedfor you on the cross,
  • 00:23:18.279 --> 00:23:20.080
  • that he loves you, andthat's the third area,
  • 00:23:20.080 --> 00:23:22.950
  • that you are loved personally
  • 00:23:22.950 --> 00:23:26.420
  • He calls you by name,draws you to himself.
  • 00:23:26.420 --> 00:23:30.791
  • Even though there are7.8 billion people
  • 00:23:30.791 --> 00:23:35.229
  • on the face of the earth,he knows your name.
  • 00:23:35.229 --> 00:23:37.865
  • He knows your name,he gave you your name.
  • 00:23:39.533 --> 00:23:41.469
  • Every heartbeat, everybreath, every moment
  • 00:23:42.803 --> 00:23:44.672
  • is a gift from God to you.
  • 00:23:44.672 --> 00:23:46.106
  • He knows you beforeyou were born.
  • 00:23:46.106 --> 00:23:47.741
  • "He knit us togetherin our mother's womb,"
  • 00:23:47.741 --> 00:23:50.044
  • Psalm 139 says,"and you are loved,"
  • 00:23:50.044 --> 00:23:52.880
  • and I want you to sense thatthrough this program right now,
  • 00:23:52.880 --> 00:23:55.649
  • that even if you have drifted,
  • 00:23:55.649 --> 00:23:58.552
  • even you fall apart,you feel far apart,
  • 00:23:58.552 --> 00:24:02.089
  • even if you're strugglingwith an addiction,
  • 00:24:02.089 --> 00:24:04.692
  • habitual sin, whatever it is,
  • 00:24:04.692 --> 00:24:06.427
  • maybe you've never knownwho Jesus is, you're loved.
  • 00:24:06.427 --> 00:24:10.130
  • God's affection foryou is priceless.
  • 00:24:10.130 --> 00:24:13.667
  • And that's why thatportrait by Leonardo DaVinci
  • 00:24:13.667 --> 00:24:17.638
  • sold for $450.3 million dollars,
  • 00:24:17.638 --> 00:24:22.176
  • because Jesus is priceless.
  • 00:24:22.176 --> 00:24:25.713
  • There isn't a valuethat we can put on him.
  • 00:24:25.713 --> 00:24:28.682
  • His love for us is inestimable,
  • 00:24:28.682 --> 00:24:32.786
  • because he bringsintimacy, eternal life,
  • 00:24:32.786 --> 00:24:37.791

  • 00:24:45.699 --> 00:24:48.202
  • you've invited him in ever more.

  • (peaceful piano music)
  • 00:24:55.342 --> 00:24:58.612
  • Jesus wants a personalrelationship with you.

  • 00:25:03.584 --> 00:25:05.586
  • he loves you, wentto the cross for you.
  • 00:25:05.586 --> 00:25:08.255
