  • ENTITLED "GOD'S MASTERPIECE."

  • EPHESIANS 2 CONTAINS ONE OF MY
  • 00:01:02.070 --> 00:01:04.210
  • FAVORITE VERSES: "FOR WE ARE
  • 00:01:04.210 --> 00:01:06.150
  • HIS WORKMANSHIP, CREATED IN

  • IN THIS MESSAGE, I'M GONNA
  • 00:01:15.010 --> 00:01:16.020
  • HIGHLIGHT THE WORD
  • 00:01:16.020 --> 00:01:17.060
  • "WORKMANSHIP," WHICH CAN ALSO
  • 00:01:17.060 --> 00:01:18.180
  • BE TRANSLATED TO MASTERPIECE.
  • 00:01:18.180 --> 00:01:21.060
  • WE ARE GOD'S MASTERPIECE,
  • 00:01:21.060 --> 00:01:23.000
  • TOTALLY ORIGINAL AND
  • 00:01:23.000 --> 00:01:23.270
  • HOWEVER, MANY OF US DON'T FULLY
  • 00:01:27.050 --> 00:01:28.200
  • REALIZE WHO WE ARE BECAUSE WE
  • 00:01:28.200 --> 00:01:30.070
  • HAVEN'T TESTED OUR LIMITS YET.
  • 00:01:30.070 --> 00:01:31.050

  • IDENTITY IN CHRIST.
  • 00:01:43.090 --> 00:01:45.020
  • ENJOY THIS MESSAGE AND I'LL SEE
  • 00:01:45.020 --> 00:01:47.280
  • IF YOU HAVE YOUR BIBLE, WHY
  • 00:01:51.080 --> 00:01:52.290
  • DON'T YOU GET IT OPEN TO
  • 00:01:52.290 --> 00:01:53.170
  • EPHESIANS CHAPTER 2.
  • 00:01:56.070 --> 00:01:59.070
  • WE'RE GONNA READ,
  • 00:01:59.070 --> 00:01:59.220
  • IT'S GOT A REAL SIMPLE
  • 00:01:59.220 --> 00:02:01.010
  • MESSAGE, TODAY.
  • 00:02:01.010 --> 00:02:03.230
  • BUT WE'RE GONNA READ WHAT I
  • 00:02:03.230 --> 00:02:05.270
  • CLASSICALLY CALL ONE OF
  • 00:02:05.270 --> 00:02:06.220
  • MY MOST FAVORITE PASSAGES
  • 00:02:06.220 --> 00:02:08.240
  • IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:02:08.240 --> 00:02:09.140
  • NOW, I THINK IT'S CLEAR TO SAY
  • 00:02:09.140 --> 00:02:10.110
  • THAT I SAY THAT ABOUT A LOT OF
  • 00:02:10.110 --> 00:02:11.160
  • SCRIPTURE IN THE BIBLE, 'CAUSE
  • 00:02:11.160 --> 00:02:12.140
  • THE BIBLE IS JUST GOOD.
  • 00:02:12.140 --> 00:02:14.280
  • BUT THERE ARE CERTAIN PASSAGES
  • 00:02:14.280 --> 00:02:15.190
  • OF SCRIPTURE THAT KINDA STAY
  • 00:02:15.190 --> 00:02:18.150
  • AT THE TOP OF THE STACK.
  • 00:02:18.150 --> 00:02:20.020
  • AND THIS IS ONE OF 'EM.
  • 00:02:20.020 --> 00:02:21.110
  • EPHESIANS 2:1-10.
  • 00:02:21.110 --> 00:02:23.150
  • WE'RE NOT GONNA READ THE
  • 00:02:23.150 --> 00:02:24.030
  • WHOLE PASSAGE.
  • 00:02:24.030 --> 00:02:25.260
  • BUT I LOVE THIS PASSAGE SO
  • 00:02:25.260 --> 00:02:26.150
  • MUCH BECAUSE IT IS LITERALLY,
  • 00:02:26.150 --> 00:02:28.030
  • PROBABLY, IN MY OPINION, ONE OF
  • 00:02:28.030 --> 00:02:29.110
  • THE MOST...PRECISE, CONCISE
  • 00:02:31.010 --> 00:02:34.010
  • SYNOPSIS OF THE KINGDOM AND THE
  • 00:02:34.010 --> 00:02:35.000
  • MESSAGE OF THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:02:35.000 --> 00:02:36.050
  • IT COVERS EVERYTHING -- WHAT IT
  • 00:02:36.050 --> 00:02:38.000
  • WAS LIKE BEFORE THE CROSS, WHAT
  • 00:02:38.000 --> 00:02:39.070
  • HAPPENED AT THE CROSS, AND WHAT
  • 00:02:39.070 --> 00:02:41.200
  • LIFE LOOKED LIKE
  • 00:02:41.200 --> 00:02:42.150
  • AFTER THE CROSS.
  • 00:02:42.150 --> 00:02:44.160
  • IT'S ONE OF THE MOST--
  • 00:02:44.160 --> 00:02:45.170
  • HONESTLY, IF I NEED
  • 00:02:45.170 --> 00:02:46.260
  • ENCOURAGEMENT, IF I JUST
  • 00:02:46.260 --> 00:02:47.240
  • NEED...JUST ANOTHER GREAT VIEW
  • 00:02:48.060 --> 00:02:51.060
  • ON WHAT GOD'S DOING, I OFTEN
  • 00:02:51.060 --> 00:02:52.000
  • I GO TO OTHER PASSAGES
  • 00:02:54.100 --> 00:02:54.270
  • AS WELL.
  • 00:02:54.270 --> 00:02:57.160
  • I DON'T REMEMBER WHEN IT WAS --
  • 00:02:57.160 --> 00:02:59.240
  • IT WAS A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO --
  • 00:02:59.240 --> 00:03:01.210
  • BUT I REMEMBER THAT THIS PASSAGE
  • 00:03:01.210 --> 00:03:03.230
  • I FELT LIKE IT WAS A ONGOING
  • 00:03:03.230 --> 00:03:05.290
  • ENCOUNTER WITH GOD, FOR AT
  • 00:03:05.290 --> 00:03:07.110
  • LEAST TWO OR THREE YEARS, WITH
  • 00:03:07.110 --> 00:03:09.150
  • THIS SPECIFIC PASSAGE.
  • 00:03:09.150 --> 00:03:10.020
  • AND IT CONTINUES TO REVEAL
  • 00:03:10.020 --> 00:03:11.170
  • THINGS ABOUT THE NATURE
  • 00:03:11.170 --> 00:03:12.260
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:03:12.260 --> 00:03:14.210
  • BUT, TODAY, WE'RE ONLY GONNA
  • 00:03:14.210 --> 00:03:16.010
  • READ VERSE 10.
  • 00:03:16.010 --> 00:03:17.060
  • SO, LET'S READ VERSE 10,
  • 00:03:17.060 --> 00:03:17.270
  • TOGETHER, OF CHAPTER 2.
  • 00:03:17.280 --> 00:03:20.280
  • "FOR WE ARE HIS WORKMANSHIP,
  • 00:03:20.280 --> 00:03:22.180
  • CREATED IN CHRIST JESUS FOR
  • 00:03:22.180 --> 00:03:23.140
  • GOOD WORKS, WHICH GOD PREPARED
  • 00:03:23.140 --> 00:03:24.200
  • BEFOREHAND THAT WE SHOULD WALK
  • 00:03:24.240 --> 00:03:27.240
  • IN THEM."
  • 00:03:27.240 --> 00:03:29.270
  • LET'S READ IT ONE MORE TIME.
  • 00:03:29.270 --> 00:03:31.040
  • "FOR WE ARE HIS WORKMANSHIP..."
  • 00:03:31.040 --> 00:03:32.110
  • SAY "WORKMANSHIP."
  • 00:03:32.110 --> 00:03:32.280
  • [AUDIENCE REPEATS]
  • 00:03:32.280 --> 00:03:34.070
  • "...CREATED IN CHRIST JESUS FOR
  • 00:03:34.070 --> 00:03:36.250
  • GOOD WORKS, WHICH GOD PREPARED
  • 00:03:36.250 --> 00:03:38.260
  • BEFOREHAND THAT WE SHOULD WALK
  • 00:03:38.260 --> 00:03:40.190
  • IN THEM."
  • 00:03:41.100 --> 00:03:44.100
  • YOU KNOW, THE WORD
  • 00:03:44.100 --> 00:03:45.110
  • AND, IF YOU LOOK AT THE
  • 00:03:48.060 --> 00:03:48.240
  • ORIGINAL LANGUAGE, IT ACTUALLY
  • 00:03:48.240 --> 00:03:49.210
  • MAKES REFERENCE TO A
  • 00:03:49.210 --> 00:03:50.180
  • MASTERPIECE, A WORK OF ART,
  • 00:03:51.040 --> 00:03:54.040
  • A POEM.
  • 00:03:54.040 --> 00:03:55.040
  • SCHOLARS OR COMMENTARIES WILL
  • 00:03:55.040 --> 00:03:56.280
  • TELL US THAT IT'S ACTUALLY
  • 00:03:56.280 --> 00:03:58.050
  • GOD'S WAY OF SAYING: YOU'RE MY
  • 00:03:58.050 --> 00:03:59.010
  • POEM, YOU'RE MY MASTERPIECE,
  • 00:03:59.010 --> 00:04:00.070
  • YOU'RE MY PIECE OF ART.
  • 00:04:00.070 --> 00:04:02.160
  • NOW, WHAT'S CHALLENGING FOR US
  • 00:04:02.160 --> 00:04:04.110
  • -- WHEN WE HEAR THE WORD
  • 00:04:04.110 --> 00:04:05.290
  • "MASTERPIECE," WE HAVE A VERY
  • 00:04:05.290 --> 00:04:06.270
  • EARTHLY VIEW OF MASTERPIECES.
  • 00:04:06.270 --> 00:04:08.170
  • MASTERPIECES ARE THOSE RARE
  • 00:04:11.240 --> 00:04:13.010
  • PIECES OF SOMETHING -- THERE'S
  • 00:04:13.010 --> 00:04:13.230
  • ART, MUSIC -- SOME FORM OF
  • 00:04:13.230 --> 00:04:15.270
  • A CREATION.
  • 00:04:15.270 --> 00:04:17.190
  • AND IT'S RARE.
  • 00:04:17.190 --> 00:04:18.220
  • AND SO, IN OUR EARTHLY
  • 00:04:18.220 --> 00:04:20.000
  • UNDERSTANDING OF THIS WORD,
  • 00:04:20.000 --> 00:04:21.100
  • YOU CAN'T HAVE TOO MANY
  • 00:04:21.100 --> 00:04:22.210
  • MASTERPIECES BECAUSE THEN
  • 00:04:22.210 --> 00:04:23.100
  • IT LOSES ITS POINT.
  • 00:04:23.230 --> 00:04:26.230
  • DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?
  • 00:04:26.230 --> 00:04:27.270
  • NOT EVERYTHING CAN BE A
  • 00:04:27.270 --> 00:04:29.050
  • MASTERPIECE BECAUSE THEN WHAT
  • 00:04:29.050 --> 00:04:30.230
  • MAKES IT A MASTERPIECE?
  • 00:04:30.230 --> 00:04:31.120
  • IT CAN'T.
  • 00:04:31.120 --> 00:04:33.020
  • BUT WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND --
  • 00:04:33.020 --> 00:04:34.240
  • THAT'S A VERY EARTHLY VIEW
  • 00:04:34.240 --> 00:04:36.030
  • OF MASTERPIECE.
  • 00:04:36.030 --> 00:04:38.090
  • AND YOU FIND ANY MUSICIAN,
  • 00:04:38.090 --> 00:04:38.280
  • ANY ARTIST, ANY PAINTER,
  • 00:04:38.280 --> 00:04:40.140
  • SCULPTOR -- ANYBODY THAT IS
  • 00:04:40.140 --> 00:04:42.200
  • EXPRESSING THEMSELF IN
  • 00:04:42.200 --> 00:04:43.210
  • CREATING SOMETHING.
  • 00:04:43.210 --> 00:04:45.110
  • MOST ARTISTS ARE WELL-KNOWN
  • 00:04:45.270 --> 00:04:48.270
  • PEOPLE OR BECOME KNOWN
  • 00:04:48.270 --> 00:04:50.110
  • BECAUSE OF A MASTERPIECE,
  • 00:04:50.110 --> 00:04:51.270
  • NOT MULTIPLE MASTERPIECES.
  • 00:04:51.270 --> 00:04:52.290
  • NOW, THERE ARE A FEW RARE
  • 00:04:52.290 --> 00:04:54.220
  • INDIVIDUALS ON THE EARTH THAT
  • 00:04:54.220 --> 00:04:55.170
  • HAVE CREATED MORE THAN ONE
  • 00:04:55.170 --> 00:04:56.140
  • MASTERPIECE.
  • 00:04:56.140 --> 00:04:57.210
  • BUT THE POINT IS, FOR MANY
  • 00:04:57.210 --> 00:04:59.070
  • PEOPLE, IF YOU GET ONE
  • 00:04:59.070 --> 00:05:00.190
  • MASTERPIECE, YOU CAN GO TO THE
  • 00:05:00.190 --> 00:05:02.240
  • GRAVE KNOWING: I GOT ONE
  • 00:05:02.240 --> 00:05:03.150
  • MASTERPIECE,
  • 00:05:03.150 --> 00:05:06.120
  • BIBLE THAT'S THE TRUTH.
  • 00:05:06.120 --> 00:05:07.290
  • BUT IT'S FASCINATING THAT GOD,
  • 00:05:07.290 --> 00:05:09.170
  • THAT PAUL WOULD WRITE THIS WORD
  • 00:05:09.170 --> 00:05:10.210
  • TO DESCRIBE HOW GOD VIEWS
  • 00:05:10.210 --> 00:05:11.180
  • HUMANITY.
  • 00:05:11.180 --> 00:05:12.190
  • GOD SAYS WE ARE HIS
  • 00:05:12.190 --> 00:05:13.080
  • MASTERPIECE.
  • 00:05:13.080 --> 00:05:15.120
  • YOU SEE, HE'S THE ONLY ONE THAT
  • 00:05:15.120 --> 00:05:17.000
  • COULD ACTUALLY CREATE BILLIONS
  • 00:05:17.000 --> 00:05:19.170
  • OF MASTERPIECES.
  • 00:05:19.170 --> 00:05:20.280
  • HE DOES IT IN HIS SLEEP.
  • 00:05:20.280 --> 00:05:22.180
  • THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO
  • 00:05:22.180 --> 00:05:24.030
  • UNDERSTAND, BECAUSE WE THINK OF
  • 00:05:24.030 --> 00:05:25.180
  • MASTERPIECE AS SOMETHING VERY
  • 00:05:25.180 --> 00:05:27.110
  • RARE AND SPECIAL.
  • 00:05:27.110 --> 00:05:28.150
  • WELL, IN GOD'S VIEW OF CREATION
  • 00:05:28.150 --> 00:05:31.130
  • AND HUMANITY, HE SAYS EVERY ONE
  • 00:05:31.130 --> 00:05:33.170
  • OF US IS A MASTERPIECE.
  • 00:05:33.170 --> 00:05:34.270
  • EVERY ONE OF US IS UNIQUE.
  • 00:05:34.270 --> 00:05:37.170
  • NOW, ANYTIME YOU TALK TO, UH,
  • 00:05:37.250 --> 00:05:40.250
  • ANY TYPE OF ARTIST, OR
  • 00:05:40.250 --> 00:05:42.010
  • MUSICIAN, OR SCULPTOR --
  • 00:05:42.010 --> 00:05:44.200
  • ANYBODY, AT LEAST, IN THAT
  • 00:05:44.200 --> 00:05:46.010
  • FIELD -- WHEN YOU LOOK AT THEIR
  • 00:05:46.010 --> 00:05:47.180
  • MASTERPIECE -- NOT JUST ALL
  • 00:05:47.220 --> 00:05:50.220
  • THEIR ART, BUT THAT ONE PIECE
  • 00:05:50.220 --> 00:05:52.110
  • THAT STANDS OUT, LIKE, "THIS IS
  • 00:05:52.110 --> 00:05:53.060
  • THE BEST I'VE EVER DONE" --
  • 00:05:53.060 --> 00:05:54.020
  • WHEN YOU TALK TO THAT PERSON,
  • 00:05:54.020 --> 00:05:55.130
  • WHAT DO YOU HEAR?
  • 00:05:55.130 --> 00:05:56.230
  • YOU'RE GOING TO HEAR THAT THAT
  • 00:05:56.230 --> 00:05:58.070
  • MASTERPIECE -- WHETHER IT'S A
  • 00:05:58.070 --> 00:05:59.140
  • PAINTING, A SONG, OR A
  • 00:05:59.140 --> 00:06:00.180
  • SCULPTURE OF SOME SORT --
  • 00:06:01.130 --> 00:06:04.130
  • THEY'RE GONNA DESCRIBE IT IN
  • 00:06:04.130 --> 00:06:06.080
  • SUCH A WAY THAT IT FEELS LIKE
  • 00:06:06.080 --> 00:06:07.150
  • THEY CUT OFF THEIR ARM AND
  • 00:06:07.150 --> 00:06:08.250
  • THAT'S A PART OF THEM.
  • 00:06:08.250 --> 00:06:10.020
  • AND IT IS THE MOST
  • 00:06:10.020 --> 00:06:11.120
  • PRECISE...REPRESENTATION OF WHO
  • 00:06:11.130 --> 00:06:14.130
  • THEY ARE AND WHAT'S GOING ON

  • INSIDE OF THEM.
  • 00:06:15.250 --> 00:06:17.140
  • SO, I'D LIKE TO TAKE IT A STEP
  • 00:06:17.140 --> 00:06:19.080
  • FURTHER, THAT WHEN GOD CREATED
  • 00:06:19.080 --> 00:06:20.250

  • - ERIC: NOW, HOW IS THAT
  • 00:06:42.270 --> 00:06:43.200
  • POSSIBLE?
  • 00:06:43.200 --> 00:06:44.160
  • 'CAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS SO.

  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:06:45.100 --> 00:06:46.290
  • IT'S POSSIBLE BECAUSE GOD IS
  • 00:06:46.290 --> 00:06:47.190
  • THE CREATOR.
  • 00:06:47.190 --> 00:06:48.270
  • HE SAID: EVERYONE IS MY
  • 00:06:48.270 --> 00:06:49.160
  • MASTERPIECE.
  • 00:06:49.160 --> 00:06:50.070
  • EVERYONE HAS A PIECE TO THIS
  • 00:06:50.070 --> 00:06:52.080
  • PUZZLE OF DEMONSTRATING NOT TO
  • 00:06:52.080 --> 00:06:54.090
  • JUST PEOPLE BUT TO THE
  • 00:06:54.090 --> 00:06:55.140
  • LATER ON IN EPHESIANS, IT SAYS
  • 00:06:58.120 --> 00:06:59.150
  • THE MANIFOLD WISDOM OF GOD
  • 00:06:59.150 --> 00:07:01.160
  • MIGHT BE MADE KNOWN TO THE
  • 00:07:01.160 --> 00:07:03.040
  • SUPERNATURAL REALM OF
  • 00:07:03.040 --> 00:07:04.130
  • PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS.
  • 00:07:04.130 --> 00:07:07.070
  • SO, IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT SHOWING
  • 00:07:07.070 --> 00:07:08.090
  • GOD OFF TO EACH OTHER; IT'S A
  • 00:07:08.090 --> 00:07:09.190
  • DEMONSTRATION FOR THE AGES TO
  • 00:07:09.190 --> 00:07:10.270
  • COME OF THE GOODNESS OF GOD.
  • 00:07:10.270 --> 00:07:13.020
  • AND WHEN YOU FIND OUT THAT
  • 00:07:13.020 --> 00:07:15.030
  • YOU'RE A MASTERPIECE, THAT YOU
  • 00:07:15.280 --> 00:07:18.280
  • ACTUALLY HAVE THE PRIVILEGE TO
  • 00:07:18.280 --> 00:07:20.120
  • SPEND THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
  • 00:07:20.120 --> 00:07:22.040
  • DEMONSTRATING A PART OF GOD
  • 00:07:22.040 --> 00:07:23.180
  • THAT NO ONE ELSE HAS THAT SAME
  • 00:07:23.180 --> 00:07:26.000
  • RESPONSIBILITY--
  • 00:07:26.130 --> 00:07:29.130
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT GIFTS --
  • 00:07:29.130 --> 00:07:30.030
  • GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT,
  • 00:07:30.030 --> 00:07:30.250
  • HEALINGS, MIRACLES.
  • 00:07:30.250 --> 00:07:31.180
  • WE TALK ABOUT ALL THESE
  • 00:07:31.180 --> 00:07:32.080
  • BEAUTIFUL THINGS.
  • 00:07:32.080 --> 00:07:33.120
  • BUT HOW MANY KNOW YOU CAN TAKE
  • 00:07:33.120 --> 00:07:34.070
  • THREE PEOPLE THAT HAVE THE GIFT
  • 00:07:34.070 --> 00:07:35.180
  • OF HEALING, BUT IT LOOKS VERY
  • 00:07:35.180 --> 00:07:37.050
  • DIFFERENT FOR THREE PEOPLE?
  • 00:07:37.050 --> 00:07:38.290
  • SEE, THERE'S A DIFFERENCE
  • 00:07:38.290 --> 00:07:40.190
  • BETWEEN VALUES AND MODELS.
  • 00:07:40.190 --> 00:07:42.070
  • AND SO, WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:07:42.070 --> 00:07:44.040
  • THAT GOD MAY GIVE YOU THE SAME
  • 00:07:44.040 --> 00:07:46.080
  • GIFT AS THE PERSON SITTING NEXT
  • 00:07:46.080 --> 00:07:48.020
  • TO YOU, BUT YOU WILL HAVE A

  • UNIQUE EXPRESSION BECAUSE YOU
  • 00:07:49.240 --> 00:07:51.040
  • CHANGE THE EXPRESSION BECAUSE
  • 00:07:51.040 --> 00:07:52.100
  • OF WHO YOU ARE.
  • 00:07:52.100 --> 00:07:54.240
  • WHY IS THIS A BIG DEAL?
  • 00:07:54.240 --> 00:07:56.120
  • LET ME TELL YOU WHY IT'S A
  • 00:07:56.120 --> 00:07:57.080
  • BIG DEAL?
  • 00:07:57.080 --> 00:07:59.090
  • BECAUSE WE LIVE IN CULTURE AND
  • 00:07:59.090 --> 00:08:00.100
  • A SOCIETY THAT IS CLASSICALLY
  • 00:08:00.100 --> 00:08:02.040
  • WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT?
  • 00:08:04.190 --> 00:08:06.000
  • BECAUSE IN A POST-MODERN
  • 00:08:06.000 --> 00:08:07.140
  • SOCIETY, EVERYTHING THAT SHOULD
  • 00:08:07.140 --> 00:08:08.220
  • NOT BE DECONSTRUCTED IS BEING
  • 00:08:08.220 --> 00:08:11.050
  • DECONSTRUCTED.
  • 00:08:11.050 --> 00:08:12.080
  • HUMANITY IS ACTUALLY FORGETTING
  • 00:08:12.080 --> 00:08:13.290
  • WHAT IT MEANS TO BE HUMAN.
  • 00:08:14.000 --> 00:08:17.000
  • SOCIETY IS FORGETTING WHAT IT
  • 00:08:17.000 --> 00:08:18.230
  • MEANS TO BE A MAN AND WHAT IT
  • 00:08:18.230 --> 00:08:20.180
  • MEANS TO BE A WOMAN.
  • 00:08:20.180 --> 00:08:22.110

  • GRAY.
  • 00:08:25.210 --> 00:08:27.070
  • AND IT IS THE ESSENTIALNESS OF
  • 00:08:27.070 --> 00:08:29.260
  • YOU AND I FINDING OUT WHO WE
  • 00:08:29.260 --> 00:08:31.060
  • ARE IN CHRIST.

  • I WANNA PROPOSE TO YOU: IT'S
  • 00:08:33.060 --> 00:08:33.280
  • POTENTIALLY MORE IMPORTANT
  • 00:08:33.280 --> 00:08:36.100
  • TODAY THAN IT WAS 20 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:08:36.100 --> 00:08:39.080

  • HEAD.
  • 00:13:27.010 --> 00:13:28.080

  • BOOK.
  • 00:13:29.210 --> 00:13:30.280
  • YOU DON'T GET IN THE BOOK
  • 00:13:30.280 --> 00:13:31.290
  • BECAUSE YOU SIGNED UP FOR
  • 00:13:31.290 --> 00:13:33.020
  • SOMETHING THAT YOU WERE
  • 00:13:33.020 --> 00:13:33.220
  • QUALIFIED FOR.
  • 00:13:35.000 --> 00:13:38.000
  • THERE ISN'T ONE PERSON IN
  • 00:13:38.000 --> 00:13:38.290
  • THERE.
  • 00:13:38.290 --> 00:13:39.170
  • JESUS IS PROBABLY THE ONLY ONE.
  • 00:13:39.170 --> 00:13:40.180
  • BUT LET ALONE THAT, I MEAN, AT
  • 00:13:40.180 --> 00:13:43.040
  • THE END OF HIS LIFE, HE'S LIKE,
  • 00:13:43.040 --> 00:13:45.020
  • "GOD, IS THERE ANOTHER WAY TO
  • 00:13:45.020 --> 00:13:45.240
  • GO ABOUT THIS?"
  • 00:13:45.240 --> 00:13:47.120
  • EVEN THAT -- JESUS EVEN WAS--
  • 00:13:47.120 --> 00:13:48.190
  • IT...MIGHT BE THEOLOGICALLY
  • 00:13:48.190 --> 00:13:50.290
  • AWKWARD, BUT HE WAS IN OVER HIS
  • 00:13:50.290 --> 00:13:52.160
  • HEAD.
  • 00:13:52.160 --> 00:13:54.070
  • BUT HE WENT THROUGH IT,
  • 00:13:54.070 --> 00:13:55.000
  • ANYWAYS.
  • 00:13:55.000 --> 00:13:55.260
  • WHAT'S MY POINT?
  • 00:13:55.260 --> 00:13:56.120
  • GIDEON!
  • 00:13:56.120 --> 00:13:59.010

  • SOUNDS LIKE A BRILLIANT PLAN.
  • 00:14:01.080 --> 00:14:02.160
  • SIGN ME UP."
  • 00:14:02.160 --> 00:14:04.080
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:14:04.080 --> 00:14:06.050
  • ESTHER.
  • 00:14:06.050 --> 00:14:07.100
  • ESTHER WAS LIKE: "OH, YEAH.
  • 00:14:07.100 --> 00:14:08.100
  • I'M GOOD AT THAT.
  • 00:14:08.100 --> 00:14:09.010
  • LET'S JUST ROLL WITH IT.
  • 00:14:09.010 --> 00:14:09.280
  • GOD, SIGN ME UP."
  • 00:14:09.280 --> 00:14:10.240
  • "WHY?"
  • 00:14:10.240 --> 00:14:11.110
  • "'CAUSE I'M QUALIFIED."
  • 00:14:11.110 --> 00:14:11.290
  • NO.
  • 00:14:11.290 --> 00:14:12.180
  • NOBODY TALKS LIKE THAT IN THE
  • 00:14:12.180 --> 00:14:13.100
  • BIBLE.
  • 00:14:13.100 --> 00:14:14.040
  • EVERYBODY'S LIKE: "GOD, WHAT
  • 00:14:14.040 --> 00:14:15.100
  • ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:14:15.100 --> 00:14:17.030
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:14:17.030 --> 00:14:18.080
  • THIS IS SO FAR IN
  • 00:14:18.080 --> 00:14:18.270
  • OVER MY HEAD."
  • 00:14:18.270 --> 00:14:20.220
  • YOU SEE, WE LIVE IN A DAY AND
  • 00:14:20.220 --> 00:14:21.290
  • AGE WHERE ONE OF THE GREATEST
  • 00:14:21.290 --> 00:14:24.020
  • VALUES IS COMFORT
  • 00:14:24.020 --> 00:14:24.190
  • AND CONVENIENCE.
  • 00:14:24.190 --> 00:14:27.010
  • AND SO, WE DO NOT LIKE PUTTING
  • 00:14:27.010 --> 00:14:28.290
  • OURSELF IN A POSITION WHERE
  • 00:14:28.290 --> 00:14:30.080
  • IT'S UNCOMFORTABLE
  • 00:14:30.080 --> 00:14:31.140
  • AND THE PROBLEM IS WE HAVE THE
  • 00:14:34.150 --> 00:14:35.180
  • ABILITY TO PROTECT OURSELVES
  • 00:14:35.180 --> 00:14:36.210
  • FROM THAT.
  • 00:14:37.040 --> 00:14:40.040
  • WE ACTUALLY DON'T EVEN HAVE TO
  • 00:14:40.040 --> 00:14:40.250
  • MAKE THAT DECISION.
  • 00:14:40.250 --> 00:14:42.130
  • IT DOESN'T COME AT US LIKE
  • 00:14:42.130 --> 00:14:43.100
  • A FLOOD.
  • 00:14:43.100 --> 00:14:43.290
  • IT'S LIKE: AH...I'M JUST GONNA
  • 00:14:43.290 --> 00:14:44.200
  • GO THIS WAY.
  • 00:14:44.200 --> 00:14:45.020
  • IT'S NOT THAT HARD TO STAY
  • 00:14:45.020 --> 00:14:46.050
  • COMFORTABLE AND CONVENIENT.
  • 00:14:46.050 --> 00:14:48.080
  • ONE OF THE ONLY WAYS,
  • 00:14:48.080 --> 00:14:49.170
  • ONE OF THE PRIMARY WAYS
  • 00:14:49.170 --> 00:14:51.080
  • TO FIND OUT WHO YOU ARE, AND
  • 00:14:51.080 --> 00:14:51.280
  • HOW DEEP YOU ARE, AND WHAT YOU
  • 00:14:51.280 --> 00:14:54.000
  • ACTUALLY GOT IS TO GET IN OVER
  • 00:14:54.000 --> 00:14:55.280
  • YOUR HEAD.
  • 00:14:55.280 --> 00:14:57.180
  • WHEN YOU SEE AN OPPORTUNITY, IT
  • 00:14:57.180 --> 00:14:59.190
  • SHOULDN'T BE: "OH, I CAN
  • 00:14:59.190 --> 00:15:00.240
  • TOTALLY DO THAT.
  • 00:15:00.240 --> 00:15:02.080
  • I'M QUALIFIED FOR THAT."
  • 00:15:02.080 --> 00:15:03.010
  • NO.
  • 00:15:03.010 --> 00:15:04.060
  • IT SHOULD BE: "IT'S NOT BIG
  • 00:15:04.060 --> 00:15:05.050
  • ENOUGH.
  • 00:15:05.250 --> 00:15:08.250
  • THAT'S NOT CHALLENGING ENOUGH.
  • 00:15:08.250 --> 00:15:09.220
  • IT IS NOT OUT OF MY
  • 00:15:09.220 --> 00:15:10.130
  • LEAGUE YET."
  • 00:15:10.130 --> 00:15:12.120
  • YOU AND I SHOULD BE LOOKING FOR
  • 00:15:12.120 --> 00:15:13.270
  • OPPORTUNITIES.
  • 00:15:13.270 --> 00:15:15.170
  • IT'S LIKE: "OKAY, THAT ONE IS
  • 00:15:15.170 --> 00:15:16.260
  • SO BEYOND ME.
  • 00:15:16.260 --> 00:15:18.000
  • SIGN ME UP."
  • 00:15:18.000 --> 00:15:19.050
  • IF NOT, GOD WILL SIGN YOU UP
  • 00:15:19.050 --> 00:15:20.020
  • ANYWAY.
  • 00:15:20.020 --> 00:15:21.130
  • SO, EITHER WAY, YOU'RE STUCK.
  • 00:15:21.130 --> 00:15:22.150
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:15:22.150 --> 00:15:24.080
  • BUT THE REALITY'S THIS: WE'VE
  • 00:15:24.080 --> 00:15:26.260
  • GOTTA PUT OURSELVES IN A
  • 00:15:26.260 --> 00:15:28.190
  • POSITION WHERE WE'RE FORCED TO
  • 00:15:28.190 --> 00:15:29.100
  • FIND OUT WHO WE ARE.
  • 00:15:29.100 --> 00:15:30.010
  • SOMEONE JUST MET WITH ME
  • 00:15:30.010 --> 00:15:30.230
  • BETWEEN SERVICES AND SAID:
  • 00:15:30.230 --> 00:15:31.210
  • "YOU KNOW, I WAS IN FOREIGN
  • 00:15:31.210 --> 00:15:32.110
  • COUNTRY FOR THE LAST NUMBER
  • 00:15:32.110 --> 00:15:33.040
  • OF MONTHS.
  • 00:15:33.040 --> 00:15:34.010
  • AND, UH-- YOU KNOW, IN A
  • 00:15:34.010 --> 00:15:36.190
  • DEVELOPING COUNTRY.
  • 00:15:36.190 --> 00:15:37.240
  • PRETTY TOUGH SITUATION --
  • 00:15:37.240 --> 00:15:39.070
  • PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY,
  • 00:15:39.070 --> 00:15:40.170
  • SPIRITUALLY, AND CULTURALLY.
  • 00:15:40.170 --> 00:15:42.060
  • AND...I FOUND OUT I'M A REALLY
  • 00:15:42.060 --> 00:15:43.270
  • GOOD COORDINATOR.
  • 00:15:43.270 --> 00:15:45.180
  • LIKE, I'M REALLY GOOD AT IT."
  • 00:15:45.180 --> 00:15:47.000
  • I SAID: "THAT'S A
  • 00:15:47.000 --> 00:15:48.010
  • PERFECT EXAMPLE.
  • 00:15:48.010 --> 00:15:48.180
  • YOU WENT INTO AN ENVIRONMENT
  • 00:15:48.180 --> 00:15:49.270
  • THAT WAS SO BEYOND YOU AND YOU
  • 00:15:49.270 --> 00:15:51.270
  • CAME OUT GOING, 'MAN, I GOT
  • 00:15:51.270 --> 00:15:52.170
  • SOME GOOD SKILL.'
  • 00:15:52.170 --> 00:15:54.170
  • BUT UNTIL YOU GET INTO THAT
  • 00:15:54.170 --> 00:15:55.070
  • MOMENT, YOU'LL NEVER KNOW WHAT
  • 00:15:55.070 --> 00:15:56.070
  • YOU ACTUALLY HAVE TO OFFER."
  • 00:15:56.070 --> 00:15:58.040
  • AND I'M CONVINCED THAT SOME OF
  • 00:15:58.040 --> 00:16:00.250
  • US -- THIS IS NOT A NEGATIVE
  • 00:16:00.250 --> 00:16:02.130
  • COMMENT -- SOME OF US DON'T
  • 00:16:02.130 --> 00:16:03.110
  • ACTUALLY KNOW WHO WE ARE
  • 00:16:03.110 --> 00:16:04.140
  • BECAUSE WE HAVEN'T TESTED OUR
  • 00:16:04.140 --> 00:16:05.080
  • LIMITS YET.
  • 00:16:05.080 --> 00:16:07.270
  • WE ACTUALLY HAVEN'T PUT OURSELF
  • 00:16:07.270 --> 00:16:08.190
  • IN A SITUATION THAT IS SO OVER
  • 00:16:08.190 --> 00:16:09.270
  • OUR HEAD.
  • 00:16:09.270 --> 00:16:10.150
  • NOW, BEING A YOUTH PASTOR, I
  • 00:16:10.150 --> 00:16:12.210
  • HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF HELPING
  • 00:16:12.210 --> 00:16:14.120
  • YOUNG PEOPLE FIND OUT...
  • 00:16:14.120 --> 00:16:15.190
  • ...ABOUT THEMSELVES.
  • 00:16:16.270 --> 00:16:19.270
  • AND THERE WERE TWO THINGS THAT
  • 00:16:19.270 --> 00:16:21.060
  • WE WOULD DO EVERY YEAR.
  • 00:16:21.060 --> 00:16:23.030
  • WE WOULD DO TWO, UM...TWO
  • 00:16:23.030 --> 00:16:24.260
  • THINGS.
  • 00:16:24.260 --> 00:16:25.290
  • ONE OF 'EM WAS BACKPACKING, AND
  • 00:16:25.290 --> 00:16:27.170
  • ONE OF 'EM WAS TAKIN' 'EM TO
  • 00:16:27.170 --> 00:16:29.010
  • MEXICO, MIXING CEMENT BY HAND
  • 00:16:29.010 --> 00:16:31.160
  • ON THE GROUND.
  • 00:16:32.080 --> 00:16:35.080
  • IF YOU'VE NEVER DONE THAT YET,

  • YOU'VE NOT LIVED LIFE.
  • 00:16:36.210 --> 00:16:38.060
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:16:38.060 --> 00:16:40.280
  • THE MINISTRY WOULD ACTUALLY
  • 00:16:40.280 --> 00:16:41.220
  • CALL US FROM MEXICO AND SAID,
  • 00:16:41.220 --> 00:16:42.290
  • "DO YOU WANT TO DO
  • 00:16:42.290 --> 00:16:43.140
  • MORE MINISTRY, MORE CHURCHES?"
  • 00:16:43.140 --> 00:16:45.000

  • ALL DAY."
  • 00:16:52.030 --> 00:16:53.290
  • WHAT WAS MY REASONING?
  • 00:16:53.290 --> 00:16:55.100
  • BECAUSE I WANTED THEM TO BE
  • 00:16:55.100 --> 00:16:56.200
  • PUSHED TO THEIR LIMITS.
  • 00:16:56.200 --> 00:16:58.100
  • THIS IS NOT CHILD ABUSE, OKAY?
  • 00:16:58.100 --> 00:16:59.050
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:16:59.050 --> 00:17:00.290

  • AND SO, WE WOULD GO DOWN AND IT
  • 00:17:05.000 --> 00:17:05.240
  • WAS SO FUNNY.
  • 00:17:05.240 --> 00:17:08.220

  • WANTED A TAN.
  • 00:17:34.050 --> 00:17:36.150

  • THEIR HAND TO MIX CEMENT.
  • 00:17:38.220 --> 00:17:40.050

  • IT'S ALL BY HAND."
  • 00:17:57.090 --> 00:17:58.160

  • 00:17:58.160 --> 00:17:59.080
  • TO MOTIVATE THE KIDS.
  • 00:17:59.080 --> 00:18:00.280
