  • Ed Young: The church should be the most creative entity
  • 00:00:01.130 --> 00:00:03.220
  • in the world.
  • 00:00:03.230 --> 00:00:05.130
  • The church is where it happens.
  • 00:00:07.140 --> 00:00:09.270
  • The church is where we find purpose and meaning and power.
  • 00:00:09.280 --> 00:00:13.080
  • The church is the living, breathing body of Christ.
  • 00:00:13.090 --> 00:00:19.180
  • Wisdom, though, is seeing life through the perspective of God.
  • 00:00:20.160 --> 00:00:27.080
  • You've never locked eyes with someone that
  • 00:00:27.090 --> 00:00:30.050
  • Jesus did not die for.
  • 00:00:30.060 --> 00:00:33.210
  • Ed: Welcome to my home.
  • 00:00:34.270 --> 00:00:36.080
  • This is where I spend a lot of time studying as I prepare for
  • 00:00:36.090 --> 00:00:39.260
  • different messages that you watch each and every week.
  • 00:00:39.270 --> 00:00:45.130
  • Thank you also for allowing me to come into your home through
  • 00:00:45.140 --> 00:00:49.110
  • the miracle of technology and television.
  • 00:00:49.120 --> 00:00:52.080
  • Sit back and relax and watch this,
  • 00:00:52.090 --> 00:00:55.010
  • because I truly believe the next several moments can change
  • 00:00:55.020 --> 00:00:58.200
  • the course of your life.
  • 00:00:58.210 --> 00:01:00.290
  • Ed: We're here with the man of the hour.
  • 00:01:01.000 --> 00:01:03.090
  • Too sweet to be sour.
  • 00:01:03.100 --> 00:01:05.060
  • The tower of Dolphin's power, Ryan Tannehill.
  • 00:01:05.070 --> 00:01:08.270
  • Ryan, great to have you here, man.
  • 00:01:08.280 --> 00:01:10.040
  • Ryan Tannehill: Thanks, Ed. Thanks for having me.
  • 00:01:10.050 --> 00:01:11.090
  • Ed: Yes. Ryan, you're a big guy.
  • 00:01:11.100 --> 00:01:13.280
  • You're a quarterback.
  • 00:01:13.290 --> 00:01:15.060
  • Man, this guy is like what? What 6"5'?
  • 00:01:15.070 --> 00:01:18.220
  • Ryan: Look at these pipes. Ed: Uh-huh.
  • 00:01:18.230 --> 00:01:19.250
  • Ed: Yeah, what are you, like, 6"5'?
  • 00:01:19.260 --> 00:01:21.080
  • Ryan: 6"4'. Ed: 6"4'.
  • 00:01:21.090 --> 00:01:23.000
  • Ed: And what do you weigh?
  • 00:01:23.010 --> 00:01:24.050
  • Ryan: Two twenty. Ed: Two twenty.
  • 00:01:24.060 --> 00:01:25.110
  • Ed: Are your parents big, too?
  • 00:01:25.120 --> 00:01:26.160
  • Ryan: My dad's big. He's about 6"3', 205.
  • 00:01:26.170 --> 00:01:30.030
  • My mom is 5"10'.
  • 00:01:30.040 --> 00:01:31.250
  • Ed: Whoa! Were they athletic?
  • 00:01:31.260 --> 00:01:33.220
  • Ryan: Yeah, my dad played college football,
  • 00:01:33.230 --> 00:01:35.070
  • and my mom played college basketball.
  • 00:01:35.080 --> 00:01:36.230
  • Ed: So, Ryan, when did you know you were good?
  • 00:01:36.240 --> 00:01:39.020
  • I mean, when did you know you were a great athlete?
  • 00:01:39.030 --> 00:01:40.250
  • Ryan: I don't know.
  • 00:01:40.260 --> 00:01:42.160
  • I never really ever said like, "Oh, I'm good," you know?
  • 00:01:42.170 --> 00:01:44.160
  • I think that I grew up around the game.
  • 00:01:44.170 --> 00:01:46.230
  • I grew up around sports.
  • 00:01:46.240 --> 00:01:48.030
  • My parents were both involved in sports or coaches growing up,
  • 00:01:48.040 --> 00:01:50.240
  • so I was always around some sort of sporting activity, you know?
  • 00:01:50.250 --> 00:01:54.190
  • Dreamed of playing in the NFL since I was a little kid from as
  • 00:01:54.200 --> 00:01:57.250
  • far back as I can remember.
  • 00:01:57.260 --> 00:01:59.050
  • You know, wanted to be a quarterback in the NFL,
  • 00:01:59.060 --> 00:02:01.050
  • and I just kept chasing that dream,
  • 00:02:01.060 --> 00:02:02.270
  • working towards it each and every day,
  • 00:02:02.280 --> 00:02:04.120
  • and, you know, God blessed me and here I am.
  • 00:02:04.130 --> 00:02:07.050
  • Ed: That's amazing. Okay, high school.
  • 00:02:07.060 --> 00:02:11.120
  • Where did you go to high school?
  • 00:02:11.130 --> 00:02:12.170
  • Ryan: Big Spring High School in West Texas.
  • 00:02:12.180 --> 00:02:14.020
  • Small town. About 25.000 people.
  • 00:02:14.030 --> 00:02:15.160
  • Ed: What's your mascot? The Big Springs--
  • 00:02:15.170 --> 00:02:17.020
  • Ryan: Steers. Ed: Steers?
  • 00:02:17.030 --> 00:02:19.090
  • Ryan: Yeah, Steers, and the Lady Steers.
  • 00:02:19.100 --> 00:02:22.080
  • Ed: No way. The Lady Steers?
  • 00:02:22.090 --> 00:02:23.230
  • Ryan: The Lady Steers is real.
  • 00:02:23.240 --> 00:02:24.280
  • Ed: "Let's welcome the Lady Steers."
  • 00:02:24.290 --> 00:02:26.230
  • That's hilarious, Ryan.
  • 00:02:26.240 --> 00:02:27.290
  • So, Ryan, do people ever yell at you from the defense,
  • 00:02:28.000 --> 00:02:34.250
  • like try to mess you up?
  • 00:02:34.260 --> 00:02:36.000
  • Like, ahhhhh.
  • 00:02:36.010 --> 00:02:37.050
  • Ryan: I never got that one. I never got that one.
  • 00:02:37.060 --> 00:02:39.100
  • Ed: I would be good at that.
  • 00:02:39.110 --> 00:02:40.150
  • I can't play, but I can--
  • 00:02:40.160 --> 00:02:41.210
  • Ryan: Yeah, you're freaking me out right now, honestly.
  • 00:02:41.220 --> 00:02:42.270
  • Ed: No, no, but, Ryan, what--I mean, some people will,
  • 00:02:42.280 --> 00:02:45.020
  • like, yell at you and stuff, don't they?
  • 00:02:45.030 --> 00:02:46.070
  • They might just, or do they ever try to distract you,
  • 00:02:46.080 --> 00:02:48.150
  • like, when you're calling--
  • 00:02:48.160 --> 00:02:49.290
  • Ryan: There are sometimes, you know,
  • 00:02:50.000 --> 00:02:51.040
  • people talk trash to you, or, you know,
  • 00:02:51.050 --> 00:02:53.000
  • TV timeouts or breaks in the game,
  • 00:02:53.010 --> 00:02:54.100
  • but not usually whenever you're at the line of scrimmage.
  • 00:02:54.110 --> 00:02:57.160
  • Ed: So, they'll talk to you, talk trash to you, won't they?
  • 00:02:57.170 --> 00:03:00.190
  • Ryan: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah.
  • 00:03:00.200 --> 00:03:01.250
  • Ed: Do you talk back? Ryan: Not really.
  • 00:03:01.260 --> 00:03:03.220
  • Ryan: I'm not very good at it, so I just smile and say,
  • 00:03:03.230 --> 00:03:05.280
  • "Good hit, buddy." Keep going.
  • 00:03:05.290 --> 00:03:07.280
  • Ed: That's good. How do you deal with criticism?
  • 00:03:07.290 --> 00:03:10.010
  • Ryan: People are gonna always gonna have an opinion,
  • 00:03:10.020 --> 00:03:11.220
  • good or bad, and, honestly, yeah,
  • 00:03:11.230 --> 00:03:13.280
  • it's nice to get compliments, but, you know,
  • 00:03:13.290 --> 00:03:15.210
  • you don't wanna feed yourself with that, either, so--
  • 00:03:15.220 --> 00:03:18.150
  • Ed: It's true, isn't it? I'm thinking it's true.
  • 00:03:18.160 --> 00:03:19.280
  • If you read about, you know, you're great or you're horrible,
  • 00:03:19.290 --> 00:03:23.030
  • it's like you're on a rollercoaster.
  • 00:03:23.040 --> 00:03:25.140
  • You're like, "Oh, I'm the man." Boom.
  • 00:03:25.150 --> 00:03:27.060
  • "I'm the worst." Boom.
  • 00:03:27.070 --> 00:03:28.230
  • And it can--yeah.
  • 00:03:28.240 --> 00:03:29.260
  • Ryan: No, definitely.
  • 00:03:29.270 --> 00:03:31.020
  • I think, you know, being a leader you wanna be a steady guy
  • 00:03:31.030 --> 00:03:34.110
  • that people can look to no matter what's going on around
  • 00:03:34.120 --> 00:03:35.270
  • you, and you're steady.
  • 00:03:35.280 --> 00:03:37.070
  • And if you're doing this, up and down with however you're playing
  • 00:03:37.080 --> 00:03:39.130
  • that day, you know, you're never gonna be that,
  • 00:03:39.140 --> 00:03:41.140
  • and you're not gonna be a good leader.
  • 00:03:41.150 --> 00:03:42.220
  • Ed: I love that, so leadership is about being steady.
  • 00:03:42.230 --> 00:03:45.140
  • It's a great word, Ryan.
  • 00:03:45.150 --> 00:03:47.260
  • What else would you say about being a leader that you've
  • 00:03:47.270 --> 00:03:50.050
  • learned or that you're learning?
  • 00:03:50.060 --> 00:03:52.070
  • So, being steady.
  • 00:03:52.080 --> 00:03:53.220
  • Ryan: I think you have to respect the guys around you.
  • 00:03:53.230 --> 00:03:55.090
  • You know, you can't lead people if they don't respect you.
  • 00:03:55.100 --> 00:03:56.290
  • They don't have to like you, but they have to respect you,
  • 00:03:57.000 --> 00:04:00.120
  • and I think that--
  • 00:04:00.130 --> 00:04:02.180
  • Ed: And that's a huge point right there.
  • 00:04:02.190 --> 00:04:04.060
  • I love that.
  • 00:04:04.070 --> 00:04:05.110
  • Ryan: Yeah, I think that, you know,
  • 00:04:05.120 --> 00:04:07.080
  • you have to make those around you better.
  • 00:04:07.090 --> 00:04:08.110
  • You have to bring the best out in those around you.
  • 00:04:08.120 --> 00:04:10.080
  • You have to have tough conversations.
  • 00:04:10.090 --> 00:04:11.260
  • Ed: How do you have a tough conversation?
  • 00:04:11.270 --> 00:04:13.230
  • Just give me an example. Not specifically but--kay.
  • 00:04:13.240 --> 00:04:18.020
  • Ryan: I mean, it could be on the field,
  • 00:04:18.030 --> 00:04:19.280
  • you know, how alignments are, a play,
  • 00:04:19.290 --> 00:04:22.020
  • you didn't like what they did.
  • 00:04:22.030 --> 00:04:24.070
  • And, obviously, they have a reason why they did things,
  • 00:04:24.080 --> 00:04:26.010
  • so it's gonna be a tough conversation, you know?
  • 00:04:26.020 --> 00:04:27.230
  • They might think the way they did it is right,
  • 00:04:27.240 --> 00:04:29.280
  • I might think the way I want them to do it is right,
  • 00:04:29.290 --> 00:04:31.190
  • and so it's a balance of having those tough conversations,
  • 00:04:31.200 --> 00:04:34.170
  • finding a solution, and moving on.
  • 00:04:34.180 --> 00:04:36.050
  • Ed: So, sometimes you're gonna get into arguments.
  • 00:04:36.060 --> 00:04:38.040
  • Ryan: Discussions. Discussions, yeah.
  • 00:04:38.050 --> 00:04:40.280
  • Ed: And, you know, some people don't understand that,
  • 00:04:40.290 --> 00:04:43.000
  • but that's--you have to be willing to take the hard yards
  • 00:04:43.010 --> 00:04:47.040
  • as a leader, don't you?
  • 00:04:47.050 --> 00:04:48.120
  • Ryan: No, definitely.
  • 00:04:48.130 --> 00:04:49.180
  • If you start shying away from tough conversations,
  • 00:04:49.190 --> 00:04:51.000
  • then, you know, your team is gonna grow apart.
  • 00:04:51.010 --> 00:04:53.170
  • You're not gonna be on the same page,
  • 00:04:53.180 --> 00:04:54.220
  • and it's ultimately gonna show up on Sundays,
  • 00:04:54.230 --> 00:04:56.230
  • or for you on Sundays.
  • 00:04:56.240 --> 00:04:58.040
  • Ed: Yes, same way. Okay, Ryan, tell me.
  • 00:04:58.050 --> 00:05:01.070
  • You love fishing, and I love fishing.
  • 00:05:01.080 --> 00:05:02.280
  • Ryan: I do love fishing.
  • 00:05:02.290 --> 00:05:04.010
  • Ed: You're an excellent fisherman.
  • 00:05:04.020 --> 00:05:05.090
  • Ryan: I wouldn't say I'm an excellent fisherman,
  • 00:05:05.100 --> 00:05:06.190
  • but I love it.
  • 00:05:06.200 --> 00:05:07.270
  • I love it. I love being out in the water.
  • 00:05:07.280 --> 00:05:09.030
  • I love the relaxation I get from it.
  • 00:05:09.040 --> 00:05:11.160
  • I love the excitement of hooking into a big fish and fighting
  • 00:05:11.170 --> 00:05:13.170
  • it to the surface.
  • 00:05:13.180 --> 00:05:14.230
  • Ed: The most memorable fish you've ever caught.
  • 00:05:14.240 --> 00:05:16.230
  • One story.
  • 00:05:16.240 --> 00:05:18.080
  • Ryan: Probably my first tarpon I caught.
  • 00:05:18.090 --> 00:05:20.180
  • The wind was blowing so we anchored up.
  • 00:05:20.190 --> 00:05:22.070
  • Saw him swimming in.
  • 00:05:22.080 --> 00:05:24.220
  • The tarpon looks at this fly and immediately takes a left,
  • 00:05:24.230 --> 00:05:26.120
  • crushes the crab.
  • 00:05:26.130 --> 00:05:29.000
  • Took on a run. Fought it for like an hour.
  • 00:05:29.010 --> 00:05:30.290
  • Got him to the boat. Hopped in.
  • 00:05:31.000 --> 00:05:33.090
  • It was in shallow water. Hopped in.
  • 00:05:33.100 --> 00:05:34.120
  • Got a picture with it.
  • 00:05:34.130 --> 00:05:35.150
  • It was awesome. Awesome.
  • 00:05:35.160 --> 00:05:37.040
  • Ed: That's your most memorable fish ever.
  • 00:05:37.050 --> 00:05:38.070
  • Ryan: Yeah, definitely.
  • 00:05:38.080 --> 00:05:39.100
  • Ed: There is nothing like a tarpon.
  • 00:05:39.110 --> 00:05:40.130
  • Tell me how you became a follower of Christ,
  • 00:05:40.140 --> 00:05:43.050
  • because you--I mean this guy is the real deal.
  • 00:05:43.060 --> 00:05:46.070
  • He and his lovely wife, Lauren, phenomenal Christian family.
  • 00:05:46.080 --> 00:05:50.290
  • The real deal.
  • 00:05:51.000 --> 00:05:52.040
  • Tell me about how you became a Christian.
  • 00:05:52.050 --> 00:05:53.280
  • Ryan: So, I became a Christian at a young age.
  • 00:05:53.290 --> 00:05:56.110
  • I grew up in the church, asked Christ at camp,
  • 00:05:56.120 --> 00:05:59.110
  • and I was in seventh grade.
  • 00:05:59.120 --> 00:06:00.180
  • It was church camp in summer, so I've been a follower
  • 00:06:00.190 --> 00:06:03.210
  • of Christ since then.
  • 00:06:03.220 --> 00:06:04.260
  • Ed: You, okay, walk with Christ and live for him.
  • 00:06:04.270 --> 00:06:10.080
  • Obviously the church is very important in your life.
  • 00:06:10.090 --> 00:06:14.140
  • Ryan: Well, it's always good to be plugged in.
  • 00:06:14.150 --> 00:06:16.050
  • You know, I think your personal time with God is huge,
  • 00:06:16.060 --> 00:06:18.220
  • you know, your quiet time, your studying,
  • 00:06:18.230 --> 00:06:20.230
  • your prayer, but being around other Christian followers
  • 00:06:20.240 --> 00:06:24.010
  • in a church just feeds you.
  • 00:06:24.020 --> 00:06:26.140
  • You know, you come away feeling rejuvenated,
  • 00:06:26.150 --> 00:06:28.070
  • you get a great message, and you're constantly working on
  • 00:06:28.080 --> 00:06:31.180
  • growing closer to Christ, and I think the church
  • 00:06:31.190 --> 00:06:34.200
  • is a huge part of it.
  • 00:06:34.210 --> 00:06:35.280
  • And, you know, Christ outlined that for us when--in his time
  • 00:06:35.290 --> 00:06:38.260
  • here setting up the church and that was one
  • 00:06:38.270 --> 00:06:42.120
  • of our adjustments here.
  • 00:06:42.130 --> 00:06:43.170
  • We came here.
  • 00:06:43.180 --> 00:06:44.250
  • You know, we didn't know exactly where we were gonna go and kinda
  • 00:06:44.260 --> 00:06:46.050
  • bounced around from church to church for a while,
  • 00:06:46.060 --> 00:06:47.100
  • and last year, I guess about a year and a half ago now,
  • 00:06:47.110 --> 00:06:50.060
  • ended up finding Church by the Glades and then
  • 00:06:50.070 --> 00:06:52.230
  • going ever since.
  • 00:06:52.240 --> 00:06:53.290
  • And it doesn't matter who you are, you know?
  • 00:06:54.000 --> 00:06:55.080
  • Christ is the anchor of your life,
  • 00:06:55.090 --> 00:06:57.260
  • so--or is the anchor of my life, and I hope he's the anchor of
  • 00:06:57.270 --> 00:06:59.270
  • everyone else's life, so, you know,
  • 00:06:59.280 --> 00:07:03.030
  • it's just such a blessing to be able to find a great church,
  • 00:07:03.040 --> 00:07:05.240
  • be able to plug in, be fed, be fed weekly,
  • 00:07:05.250 --> 00:07:09.000
  • and be able to take that, take you what you get in church,
  • 00:07:09.010 --> 00:07:12.100
  • and take it out into the community.
  • 00:07:12.110 --> 00:07:14.070
  • Ed: And, Ryan, you know what's so awesome,
  • 00:07:14.080 --> 00:07:16.040
  • too, about you guys, you guys invite people to church.
  • 00:07:16.050 --> 00:07:20.060
  • Ryan: Yeah, it's huge.
  • 00:07:20.070 --> 00:07:21.140
  • You know, it's been such a blessing in our life that we
  • 00:07:21.150 --> 00:07:23.120
  • wanna share that with others, you know?
  • 00:07:23.130 --> 00:07:24.190
  • We always wanna extend the invitation and if people come,
  • 00:07:24.200 --> 00:07:27.060
  • then great.
  • 00:07:27.070 --> 00:07:28.220
  • Most of the people we've brought have enjoyed it,
  • 00:07:28.230 --> 00:07:30.120
  • have liked it, and are continually going back.
  • 00:07:30.130 --> 00:07:32.290
  • Ed: Ryan, let's stand.
  • 00:07:33.000 --> 00:07:35.200
  • I wanna show you this.
  • 00:07:35.210 --> 00:07:36.230
  • Ryan, back in the day I grew up where,
  • 00:07:36.240 --> 00:07:38.060
  • you know, "Give me five," you know?
  • 00:07:38.070 --> 00:07:40.010
  • Like, give me five. Okay, there we go.
  • 00:07:40.020 --> 00:07:41.210
  • And now, you know, now it's cool with the bro hug,
  • 00:07:41.220 --> 00:07:43.080
  • you know, with the--whatever.
  • 00:07:43.090 --> 00:07:44.280
  • And that's the way people are doing it,
  • 00:07:44.290 --> 00:07:46.060
  • the cool people are doing it, right?
  • 00:07:46.070 --> 00:07:47.130
  • Ryan: That's what you're doing, so I guess so.
  • 00:07:47.140 --> 00:07:48.290
  • Ed: But, like, on your team, the cool guys,
  • 00:07:49.000 --> 00:07:51.100
  • don't they come up with--what is it?
  • 00:07:51.110 --> 00:07:52.200
  • Like that. Is that it?
  • 00:07:52.210 --> 00:07:54.070
  • Ryan: Kinda.
  • 00:07:54.080 --> 00:07:55.120
  • Ed: Well, what is--what are they doing?
  • 00:07:55.130 --> 00:07:56.170
  • Ryan: They're doing it like this...
  • 00:07:56.180 --> 00:07:57.230
  • Ryan: There you go.
  • 00:07:58.140 --> 00:07:59.170
  • Ed: Oh, twice? Ryan: Twice.
  • 00:07:59.180 --> 00:08:00.220
  • Ed: Just like this.
  • 00:08:00.230 --> 00:08:01.250
  • Ryan: No, you gotta slap hands first.
  • 00:08:01.260 --> 00:08:02.280
  • No, don't grab it. Don't grab it.
  • 00:08:02.290 --> 00:08:04.140
  • Just slap.
  • 00:08:04.150 --> 00:08:06.000
  • Ed: Okay, man. Ryan: There you go.
  • 00:08:06.010 --> 00:08:08.040
  • Ed: Ryan, I invented a hug, and I want this to be called
  • 00:08:08.050 --> 00:08:10.270
  • the hug-a-lution.
  • 00:08:10.280 --> 00:08:12.020
  • Ryan: All right, hug-a-lution.
  • 00:08:12.030 --> 00:08:13.080
  • It's gonna be good.
  • 00:08:13.090 --> 00:08:14.110
  • Ed: I go here, here, and I put my head on your
  • 00:08:14.120 --> 00:08:17.230
  • shoulder just for a second.
  • 00:08:17.240 --> 00:08:18.270
  • Look, boom. Now--
  • 00:08:18.280 --> 00:08:20.000
  • Ryan: I don't know about this one.
  • 00:08:20.010 --> 00:08:21.160
  • Ed: Yeah, let me tell you what it does though.
  • 00:08:21.170 --> 00:08:22.250
  • You live a very--you're very--you're stressed.
  • 00:08:22.260 --> 00:08:26.090
  • You have a huge mantle of leadership on you.
  • 00:08:26.100 --> 00:08:29.030
  • It gives you a brief rest period during the day.
  • 00:08:29.040 --> 00:08:31.210
  • Watch. So, here.
  • 00:08:31.220 --> 00:08:33.100
  • Boom. Boom.
  • 00:08:33.110 --> 00:08:34.160
  • What do you think?
  • 00:08:34.170 --> 00:08:35.190
  • Ryan: Really brief. Really brief.
  • 00:08:35.200 --> 00:08:37.010
  • Ed: No, brief. Brief.
  • 00:08:37.020 --> 00:08:39.040
  • Ed: I was wondering if you could, like, take that
  • 00:08:39.050 --> 00:08:40.070
  • and carry that out to the Dolphins.
  • 00:08:40.080 --> 00:08:41.200
  • "Look at DeVante Parker and Ryan Tannehill.
  • 00:08:41.210 --> 00:08:44.250
  • It's the hug-a-lution."
  • 00:08:44.260 --> 00:08:47.030
  • And I can see you guys doing like that.
  • 00:08:47.040 --> 00:08:48.080
  • Boom!
  • 00:08:48.090 --> 00:08:49.150
  • 00:08:49.160 --> 00:08:52.010
  • Ed: February 19th through the 20th our Creative Church
  • 00:08:52.020 --> 00:08:55.050
  • Conference is happening again.
  • 00:08:55.060 --> 00:08:57.220
  • Have you seen the speaking list?
  • 00:08:57.230 --> 00:09:00.130
  • Louie Giglio: God isn't just interested in getting
  • 00:09:00.140 --> 00:09:01.210
  • you to do something.
  • 00:09:01.220 --> 00:09:02.280
  • He wants you to understand that he sees you just like you are.
  • 00:09:02.290 --> 00:09:07.240
  • Randy Bezet: Get your eyes off the hazards in your life.
  • 00:09:07.250 --> 00:09:09.230
  • Get your eyes on Jesus.
  • 00:09:09.240 --> 00:09:11.210
  • Ed: The gates of hell will not prevail against the church.
  • 00:09:11.220 --> 00:09:14.230
  • Phil Dooley: There are people out there who are gonna try and
  • 00:09:14.240 --> 00:09:16.240
  • take your hope from you, but you gotta hold on to it.
  • 00:09:16.250 --> 00:09:19.040
  • Ed: It will revolutionize your life.
  • 00:09:19.050 --> 00:09:21.280
  • Make sure that you are here for C3.
  • 00:09:21.290 --> 00:09:26.290
  • [congregation applauding]
  • 00:09:27.000 --> 00:09:30.000
  • [congregation applauding]
  • 00:09:30.130 --> 00:09:34.260
  • Ed: I was reflecting back on my football playing days
  • 00:09:34.270 --> 00:09:37.040
  • in the fourth grade.
  • 00:09:37.050 --> 00:09:40.220
  • I played running back for Wellington Green.
  • 00:09:40.230 --> 00:09:43.230
  • It was a company in the Carolinas,
  • 00:09:43.240 --> 00:09:46.100
  • so my responsibilities were pretty limited,
  • 00:09:46.110 --> 00:09:51.250
  • but I did a pretty good year.
  • 00:09:51.260 --> 00:09:53.110
  • As I was thinking about the huddle,
  • 00:09:53.120 --> 00:09:56.230
  • when we did the huddle, you know,
  • 00:09:56.240 --> 00:09:58.180
  • get into the huddle, I still remember those plays.
  • 00:09:58.190 --> 00:10:01.140
  • I still remember the play where I would get the ball,
  • 00:10:01.150 --> 00:10:05.040
  • 36 slant, 30 counter.
  • 00:10:05.050 --> 00:10:10.050
  • You know, you break from the huddle after you hear the
  • 00:10:10.060 --> 00:10:13.180
  • quarterback call the play, and you're like,
  • 00:10:13.190 --> 00:10:15.290
  • "Okay, I've got the ball. I'm gonna get the ball."
  • 00:10:16.000 --> 00:10:19.180
  • Down, set, hut, hut. Boom!
  • 00:10:19.190 --> 00:10:25.210
  • Some of you guys who have played football know what
  • 00:10:25.220 --> 00:10:28.030
  • I'm talking about.
  • 00:10:28.040 --> 00:10:29.290
  • There's nothing like carrying the ball.
  • 00:10:30.000 --> 00:10:31.280
  • The huddle is interesting, isn't it?
  • 00:10:31.290 --> 00:10:34.160
  • The huddle. The huddle.
  • 00:10:34.170 --> 00:10:37.290
  • Where did the huddle begin?
  • 00:10:38.000 --> 00:10:39.250
  • Have you ever thought about that?
  • 00:10:39.260 --> 00:10:41.150
  • Interestingly enough, in the late 1800s a deaf school was
  • 00:10:41.160 --> 00:10:45.220
  • playing football against another deaf school,
  • 00:10:45.230 --> 00:10:48.080
  • so one deaf school did not want the other to intercept their
  • 00:10:48.090 --> 00:10:52.000
  • hand signals, so they formed a huddle.
  • 00:10:52.010 --> 00:10:56.100
  • Now we have the huddle.
  • 00:10:56.110 --> 00:10:59.010
  • The huddle, it lasts about 25 seconds.
  • 00:10:59.020 --> 00:11:03.100
  • "Well, how about the no-huddle offense, man?"
  • 00:11:03.110 --> 00:11:05.110
  • Well, I understand that, but still you have to have a huddle,
  • 00:11:05.120 --> 00:11:08.260
  • and then they'll go for several plays without a huddle,
  • 00:11:08.270 --> 00:11:11.210
  • yet a huddle is something that we're all familiar with.
  • 00:11:11.220 --> 00:11:15.180
  • It costs $80.
  • 00:11:15.190 --> 00:11:19.150
  • That's the average ticket price, $80,
  • 00:11:19.160 --> 00:11:21.160
  • to watch an NFL football game.
  • 00:11:21.170 --> 00:11:23.070
  • I don't watch the game, nor do you to watch them huddle.
  • 00:11:23.080 --> 00:11:27.160
  • We wanna see them play.
  • 00:11:27.170 --> 00:11:32.000
  • Are you in the huddle?
  • 00:11:32.010 --> 00:11:33.240
  • That's the question I wanna ask you today.
  • 00:11:33.250 --> 00:11:35.040
  • Are you huddling up?
  • 00:11:35.050 --> 00:11:37.090
  • Are you spending time in the huddle?
  • 00:11:37.100 --> 00:11:40.020
  • I would argue, biblically speaking,
  • 00:11:40.030 --> 00:11:43.200
  • that's right, from this playbook,
  • 00:11:43.210 --> 00:11:45.120
  • that God wants us to be a part of a huddle,
  • 00:11:45.130 --> 00:11:53.000
  • and I could trace for you, if I had the time,
  • 00:11:53.010 --> 00:11:55.190
  • from the Old Testament to the New Testament all the different
  • 00:11:55.200 --> 00:11:58.080
  • huddles, yet what I wanna concentrate on is this:
  • 00:11:58.090 --> 00:12:02.030
  • think about Jesus.
  • 00:12:02.040 --> 00:12:04.130
  • Think about the ultimate quarterback,
  • 00:12:04.140 --> 00:12:06.030
  • because we've been saying around here that Jesus
  • 00:12:06.040 --> 00:12:07.170
  • is our quarterback.
  • 00:12:07.180 --> 00:12:10.170
  • Whether we receive it or not, whether we allow him to take
  • 00:12:10.180 --> 00:12:13.240
  • that role or not, that's a personal decision that only you
  • 00:12:13.250 --> 00:12:16.170
  • can make, that only I can make.
  • 00:12:16.180 --> 00:12:18.090
  • However, Jesus's design, he is all about becoming your
  • 00:12:18.100 --> 00:12:25.150
  • quarterback and mine.
  • 00:12:25.160 --> 00:12:27.190
  • His career, his public career, you could say,
  • 00:12:27.200 --> 00:12:29.240
  • football, you know, metaphor, only lasted 36 months.
  • 00:12:29.250 --> 00:12:35.080
  • Three years. That's it.
  • 00:12:35.090 --> 00:12:36.230
  • When he went public with his career,
  • 00:12:36.240 --> 00:12:39.090
  • he said one thing.
  • 00:12:39.100 --> 00:12:40.150
  • He huddled everybody up and said one thing.
  • 00:12:40.160 --> 00:12:43.000
  • Then right before he ascended and went to the Father,
  • 00:12:43.010 --> 00:12:48.150
  • after his resurrection, he huddled the 11 up
  • 00:12:48.160 --> 00:12:52.290
  • and said something else.
  • 00:12:53.000 --> 00:12:55.050
  • So, the last words that someone says before they leave this
  • 00:12:55.060 --> 00:13:02.010
  • planet are words that we usually recite and we usually talk about
  • 00:13:02.020 --> 00:13:07.060
  • in hallowed tones with our loved ones and things like that.
  • 00:13:07.070 --> 00:13:11.170
  • This morning, a good friend of mine texted me,
  • 00:13:11.180 --> 00:13:16.280
  • and his brother was murdered just a few hours ago.
  • 00:13:16.290 --> 00:13:21.210
  • Tragic situation.
  • 00:13:21.220 --> 00:13:23.170
  • I prayed with him, talked with him.
  • 00:13:23.180 --> 00:13:26.120
  • I know at the funeral that his brother's last words,
  • 00:13:26.130 --> 00:13:31.180
  • his last conversation will be talked about.
  • 00:13:31.190 --> 00:13:36.050
  • I just know it. That's just the way life is.
  • 00:13:36.060 --> 00:13:38.290
  • Well, Jesus gathered together the 11.
  • 00:13:39.000 --> 00:13:46.050
  • Get it, 11? He cut Judas.
  • 00:13:46.060 --> 00:13:50.110
  • You know, Judas didn't make it, so,
  • 00:13:50.120 --> 00:13:52.060
  • 11, 11 guys, a football team.
  • 00:13:52.070 --> 00:13:54.070
  • Come on, show me some love.
  • 00:13:54.080 --> 00:13:55.150
  • Yeah, yeah, yeah, 11.
  • 00:13:55.160 --> 00:13:56.210
  • Eleven, yeah.
  • 00:13:56.220 --> 00:13:58.070
  • So, he gathered the 11 together and as you look in the gospel of
  • 00:13:58.080 --> 00:14:01.200
  • Matthew, Matthew chapter 28, Jesus huddles the 11 together
  • 00:14:01.210 --> 00:14:07.130
  • and gives them a play.
  • 00:14:07.140 --> 00:14:10.120
  • I call it M28, 19, 20 on 3, 3 being the Trinity: God the
  • 00:14:10.130 --> 00:14:19.190
  • Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:14:19.200 --> 00:14:21.030
  • Three in one. One in three.
  • 00:14:21.040 --> 00:14:22.160
  • Matthew--it's interesting--is all about the authority of
  • 00:14:22.170 --> 00:14:29.030
  • Jesus, that Jesus is our authority.
  • 00:14:29.040 --> 00:14:33.090
  • Say "authority" with me. "Authority."
  • 00:14:33.100 --> 00:14:35.070
  • He is our authority. That's Matthew.
  • 00:14:35.080 --> 00:14:37.110
  • We find this theme repeatedly in the book.
  • 00:14:37.120 --> 00:14:40.280
  • Well, Jesus huddles up the disciples,
  • 00:14:40.290 --> 00:14:45.050
  • the 11, right before he ascends to the Father,
  • 00:14:45.060 --> 00:14:50.190
  • and here is the play he calls.
  • 00:14:50.200 --> 00:14:52.240
  • It's M28, 19 and 20 on 3.
  • 00:14:52.250 --> 00:14:58.090
  • That's Matthew 28:19 and 20.
  • 00:14:58.100 --> 00:15:00.290
  • He says, "Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations,
  • 00:15:01.000 --> 00:15:07.110
  • baptizing them," here is the play,
  • 00:15:07.120 --> 00:15:10.120
  • "in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:15:10.130 --> 00:15:14.180
  • teach them," teach these new disciples, "to obey everything,
  • 00:15:14.190 --> 00:15:21.100
  • all the commands I've given you.
  • 00:15:21.110 --> 00:15:23.070
  • And be sure of this: I am with you," it's interesting he said
  • 00:15:23.080 --> 00:15:28.250
  • that, "always, even to the end of the age."
  • 00:15:28.260 --> 00:15:31.280
  • So, Jesus is calling this play, and he's saying,
  • 00:15:31.290 --> 00:15:34.190
  • "I'm with you," yet he's leaving them.
  • 00:15:34.200 --> 00:15:38.000
  • Interesting.
  • 00:15:38.010 --> 00:15:39.050
  • The authority, the authority of Jesus.
  • 00:15:39.060 --> 00:15:43.100
  • Is he your authority?
  • 00:15:43.110 --> 00:15:45.110
  • When someone is a quarterback, especially like if they're
  • 00:15:45.120 --> 00:15:49.170
  • playing high school or even college or professional,
  • 00:15:49.180 --> 00:15:52.040
  • many times don't enter the huddle,
  • 00:15:52.050 --> 00:15:53.290
  • and the quarterback will say, "Eyes on me.
  • 00:15:54.000 --> 00:15:56.070
  • Eyes on me," so all eyes.
  • 00:15:56.080 --> 00:15:59.080
  • Then he calls the play.
  • 00:15:59.090 --> 00:16:01.280
  • Jesus called the same play right before he ascended,
  • 00:16:01.290 --> 00:16:06.160
  • that he called--he kicked off his ministry,
  • 00:16:06.170 --> 00:16:09.120
  • so his last words in his human form on Earth,
  • 00:16:09.130 --> 00:16:16.000
  • I mean, are pretty stout, are pretty popular,
  • 00:16:16.010 --> 00:16:19.050
  • are pretty huge, are pretty heavy.
  • 00:16:19.060 --> 00:16:20.210
  • All of his words obviously mean everything,
  • 00:16:20.220 --> 00:16:24.010
  • but this last statement, he didn't say, "Yo."
  • 00:16:24.020 --> 00:16:27.160
  • He said, "Go," and there is one--I want you to write this
  • 00:16:27.170 --> 00:16:31.050
  • down and circle this on your message map.
  • 00:16:31.060 --> 00:16:33.070
  • See "make disciples"?
  • 00:16:33.080 --> 00:16:34.290
  • That's the only command of Matthew 28:19 and 20.
  • 00:16:35.000 --> 00:16:43.020
  • There is one command: make disciples.
  • 00:16:43.030 --> 00:16:46.100
  • We find three participles: go, baptize, and teach.
  • 00:16:46.110 --> 00:16:54.190
  • The command: make disciples, convert the lost,
  • 00:16:54.200 --> 00:16:59.060
  • win the lost, so one is won to Christ.
  • 00:16:59.070 --> 00:17:04.200
  • How am I won to Christ?
  • 00:17:04.210 --> 00:17:06.160
  • Well, if Jesus is not my quarterback, I am defeated.
  • 00:17:06.170 --> 00:17:11.040
  • Ultimately, it will be eternal defeat, yet I surrender my all.
  • 00:17:11.050 --> 00:17:17.260
  • I surrender myself, give everything to Jesus.
  • 00:17:17.270 --> 00:17:22.050
  • "Jesus, you're my quarterback."
  • 00:17:22.060 --> 00:17:23.220
  • Now I've moved from the other team to God's team and,
  • 00:17:23.230 --> 00:17:29.090
  • as I've told you so many times here,
  • 00:17:29.100 --> 00:17:31.200
  • here is the bottom line: in the Christian life we win.
  • 00:17:31.210 --> 00:17:38.170
  • We win.
  • 00:17:38.180 --> 00:17:39.270
  • Have you surrendered?
  • 00:17:39.280 --> 00:17:42.170
  • Have you said, "Jesus, take control of my life?"
  • 00:17:42.180 --> 00:17:46.210
  • A disciple is a full-court follower of Christ.
  • 00:17:46.220 --> 00:17:49.240
  • A disciple is someone who has believed in Jesus.
  • 00:17:49.250 --> 00:17:54.050
  • A disciple is someone who has been baptized.
  • 00:17:54.060 --> 00:17:56.220
  • When you're baptized it's like,
  • 00:17:56.230 --> 00:17:58.080
  • "Okay, I'm putting on the Cowboy colors."
  • 00:17:58.090 --> 00:18:01.120
  • Or, "I'm putting on the Dolphin uniform.
  • 00:18:01.130 --> 00:18:03.190
  • I'm identifying with that team."
  • 00:18:03.200 --> 00:18:06.100
  • So, they have believed in Jesus, they're baptized,
  • 00:18:06.110 --> 00:18:10.110
  • they boldly confess their faith, and they listen to the words
  • 00:18:10.120 --> 00:18:17.170
  • of the quarterback.
  • 00:18:17.180 --> 00:18:19.080
  • Moreover, they do--they carry out the play.
  • 00:18:19.090 --> 00:18:23.140
  • Here is what I love about football.
  • 00:18:23.150 --> 00:18:24.180
  • Here is what I love about football.
  • 00:18:25.010 --> 00:18:26.030
  • Football is a game that's a tough game,
  • 00:18:26.040 --> 00:18:29.100
  • a game where you get dirty.
  • 00:18:29.110 --> 00:18:30.210
  • Your uniforms are not always crisp and clean.
  • 00:18:30.220 --> 00:18:32.200
  • You're gonna get dirty.
  • 00:18:32.210 --> 00:18:34.040
  • You're gonna get banged up.
  • 00:18:34.050 --> 00:18:35.200
  • You're gonna get knocked around.
  • 00:18:35.210 --> 00:18:36.290
  • You'll have injuries now and then.
  • 00:18:37.000 --> 00:18:38.140
  • We all can say, "Oh, yeah, I've got that."
  • 00:18:38.150 --> 00:18:40.080
  • However, we're playing on God's field.
  • 00:18:40.090 --> 00:18:44.040
  • We always have home field advantage,
  • 00:18:44.050 --> 00:18:46.180
  • and the Bible tells me, it tells you,
  • 00:18:46.190 --> 00:18:48.220
  • that we have a great cloud of witnesses,
  • 00:18:48.230 --> 00:18:51.250
  • a great cloud of spectators who have gone before us,
  • 00:18:51.260 --> 00:18:55.130
  • and I believe they're cheering from the heavenlies, "Go."
  • 00:18:55.140 --> 00:18:59.010
  • [beatboxing]
  • 00:18:59.020 --> 00:19:02.040
  • "Go," so it's time that believers understand this
  • 00:19:02.050 --> 00:19:05.150
  • offense that Jesus has for us.
  • 00:19:05.160 --> 00:19:09.080
  • What's the offense? M28 on 3.
  • 00:19:09.090 --> 00:19:14.110
  • On 3, again, is the Holy Spirit of God.
  • 00:19:14.120 --> 00:19:16.120
  • That's the play. That's the play.
  • 00:19:16.130 --> 00:19:17.180
  • That's the play, so the authority is given to Jesus.
  • 00:19:17.190 --> 00:19:22.000
  • Jesus says, "All right, you either submit yourself to the
  • 00:19:22.010 --> 00:19:24.230
  • authority or not," and notice the activity.
  • 00:19:24.240 --> 00:19:26.160
  • I just said it.
  • 00:19:26.170 --> 00:19:27.230
  • What's the activity? The verbs.
  • 00:19:27.240 --> 00:19:29.160
  • Go; in the original language, in the Koine Greek,
  • 00:19:29.170 --> 00:19:32.070
  • "go" is rendered as you're going.
  • 00:19:32.080 --> 00:19:35.000
  • Get your as in gear. That's A-S.
  • 00:19:35.010 --> 00:19:41.000
  • Get your as in gear.
  • 00:19:41.010 --> 00:19:42.200
  • Don't just sit there in the huddle.
  • 00:19:42.210 --> 00:19:45.050
  • Break, the play's been called: M28, 19 and 20 on 3.
  • 00:19:45.060 --> 00:19:51.120
  • Play your position, so, see, there is a place for you on
  • 00:19:51.130 --> 00:19:55.040
  • God's team, so as you're going, as you're living your life.
  • 00:19:55.050 --> 00:19:58.090
  • And here is the deal.
  • 00:19:58.100 --> 00:19:59.180
  • Don't--yeah, sometimes God will call you and me across the pond
  • 00:19:59.190 --> 00:20:04.290
  • to another mission field, but become
  • 00:20:05.000 --> 00:20:08.180
  • a missionary where you are.
  • 00:20:08.190 --> 00:20:12.090
  • Don't fly from one mission field.
  • 00:20:12.100 --> 00:20:14.140
  • Don't fly over one mission field to get to another mission field,
  • 00:20:14.150 --> 00:20:18.070
  • and it's like, "Oh, once I get to Zimbabwe,
  • 00:20:18.080 --> 00:20:20.160
  • once I get to Asia, then I'm gonna be a full-on missionary."
  • 00:20:20.170 --> 00:20:24.220
  • It starts right here.
  • 00:20:24.230 --> 00:20:27.240
  • We support world missions.
  • 00:20:27.250 --> 00:20:29.230
  • We're a mission-minded church.
  • 00:20:29.240 --> 00:20:31.180
  • We've served millions of meals in Haiti.
  • 00:20:31.190 --> 00:20:34.200
  • We work in Guatemala and around the world.
  • 00:20:34.210 --> 00:20:36.100
  • We're all about that, yet the field that God has given us is
  • 00:20:36.110 --> 00:20:40.270
  • right here, and the last time I checked most
  • 00:20:40.280 --> 00:20:43.230
  • people don't know Jesus.
  • 00:20:43.240 --> 00:20:46.230
  • Most people don't go to church.
  • 00:20:46.240 --> 00:20:48.110
  • This morning, I'm driving around.
  • 00:20:48.120 --> 00:20:50.050
  • The freeways were empty, so we have a great
  • 00:20:50.060 --> 00:20:55.140
  • opportunity, so go.
  • 00:20:55.150 --> 00:20:57.270
  • As you're going, as you're going live this out.
  • 00:20:57.280 --> 00:21:01.210
  • Share the good news.
  • 00:21:01.220 --> 00:21:04.000
  • So, the authority is Jesus; he's our quarterback.
  • 00:21:04.010 --> 00:21:06.240
  • He won the authority, and Christians are
  • 00:21:06.250 --> 00:21:10.120
  • all about winning.
  • 00:21:10.130 --> 00:21:12.020
  • Jesus said, "I'm with you.
  • 00:21:12.030 --> 00:21:13.070
  • I'm with you always."
  • 00:21:13.080 --> 00:21:14.110
  • How could he say that?
  • 00:21:14.120 --> 00:21:16.190
  • Because that would be impossible.
  • 00:21:16.200 --> 00:21:18.110
  • Jesus was there on Earth and if he was there on Earth
  • 00:21:18.120 --> 00:21:22.190
  • how could he do that?
  • 00:21:22.200 --> 00:21:23.240
  • Because when he was in the earthly body he couldn't
  • 00:21:23.250 --> 00:21:25.240
  • be everywhere at once.
  • 00:21:25.250 --> 00:21:27.140
  • He had to ascend.
  • 00:21:27.150 --> 00:21:30.120
  • Then he sent
  • 00:21:30.130 --> 00:21:31.220
  • [exhaling]
  • 00:21:31.230 --> 00:21:32.290
  • the Holy Spirit, his literal presence.
  • 00:21:33.000 --> 00:21:35.260
  • The Holy Spirit of God, because of the ascension of Christ,
  • 00:21:35.270 --> 00:21:40.170
  • affords us the opportunity to have the presence of Jesus
  • 00:21:40.180 --> 00:21:44.290
  • with us wherever we go.
  • 00:21:45.000 --> 00:21:48.060
  • Isn't that great?
  • 00:21:48.070 --> 00:21:49.090
  • No matter what field, no matter what situation,
  • 00:21:49.100 --> 00:21:52.020
  • no matter what scheme the devil is throwing at you and me.
  • 00:21:52.030 --> 00:21:55.260
  • And here is what's crazy.
  • 00:21:55.270 --> 00:21:59.000
  • The team we're playing is the enemy's team.
  • 00:21:59.010 --> 00:22:02.010
  • The coach, Coach D-Evel, and Coach D-Evel is sponsored
  • 00:22:02.020 --> 00:22:11.190
  • by hatorade.
  • 00:22:11.200 --> 00:22:15.040
  • It's gonna get great--works.
  • 00:22:15.050 --> 00:22:17.200
  • I know. I know.
  • 00:22:17.210 --> 00:22:20.200
  • You've heard of defensive linemen.
  • 00:22:20.210 --> 00:22:22.270
  • How about defensive whine men? Whiny.
  • 00:22:22.280 --> 00:22:28.050
  • Do you know people who are whiny, just wear you out?
  • 00:22:28.060 --> 00:22:31.130
  • You see them coming, "Oh, Negative Ned,"
  • 00:22:31.140 --> 00:22:34.180
  • or Negative Nelda...
  • 00:22:34.190 --> 00:22:37.170
  • Oh, oh, somebody going, "Well, surely Satan has cheerleaders."
  • 00:22:40.150 --> 00:22:45.270
  • No, they're jeer leaders.
  • 00:22:45.280 --> 00:22:49.150
  • [laughing]
  • 00:22:49.160 --> 00:22:51.270
  • I'm gonna watch this service.
  • 00:22:51.280 --> 00:22:54.280
  • I love this stuff and, of course,
  • 00:22:54.290 --> 00:22:58.180
  • you might be going, "Well, I mean, of course
  • 00:22:58.190 --> 00:23:01.010
  • the game is outside.
  • 00:23:01.020 --> 00:23:02.110
  • I mean, how about--"
  • 00:23:02.120 --> 00:23:03.170
  • Have you--there is a boo bird flying over the stadium.
  • 00:23:03.180 --> 00:23:08.070
  • "Boooooooo."
  • 00:23:08.080 --> 00:23:10.280
  • "Boooooooo."
  • 00:23:11.230 --> 00:23:13.270
  • Whenever you feel bad about yourself,
  • 00:23:13.280 --> 00:23:15.140
  • whenever you feel less than, whenever you start comparing
  • 00:23:15.150 --> 00:23:19.180
  • yourself to this person--we compare physiques and bank
  • 00:23:19.190 --> 00:23:23.150
  • accounts and opportunities, and we look at Instagram and,
  • 00:23:23.160 --> 00:23:27.200
  • "Look what she gets to do.
  • 00:23:27.210 --> 00:23:29.230
  • Look what he gets to do."
  • 00:23:29.240 --> 00:23:31.120
  • I'm telling you boooooooo.
  • 00:23:31.130 --> 00:23:34.090
  • You better watch those boo birds.
  • 00:23:34.100 --> 00:23:36.160
  • You better watch 'em, so the devil will stake you and me out.
  • 00:23:36.170 --> 00:23:38.260
  • Don't muddle in the huddle.
  • 00:23:38.270 --> 00:23:41.200
  • And the first time I spoke people were like,
  • 00:23:41.210 --> 00:23:45.040
  • "What does muddle mean?"
  • 00:23:45.050 --> 00:23:46.130
  • Well, muddle is confusing.
  • 00:23:46.140 --> 00:23:49.270
  • It's you're muddying things up.
  • 00:23:49.280 --> 00:23:52.030
  • I don't--hey, I wanna be a clear preacher.
  • 00:23:52.040 --> 00:23:55.260
  • I don't wanna be a muddy preacher.
  • 00:23:55.270 --> 00:23:57.090
  • I know how to confuse anybody.
  • 00:23:57.100 --> 00:23:59.070
  • I know how to go down deep and stay down long and come up dry
  • 00:23:59.080 --> 00:24:04.260
  • with the best of them.
  • 00:24:04.270 --> 00:24:06.240
  • Oh, you didn't hear me. Yeah, that was good.
  • 00:24:06.250 --> 00:24:09.060
  • I know how to go down deep, stay down long,
  • 00:24:09.070 --> 00:24:13.110
  • and come up dry with the best of them.
  • 00:24:13.120 --> 00:24:15.160
  • That's not the Bible, so we take complex things and make
  • 00:24:15.170 --> 00:24:19.230
  • them understandable.
  • 00:24:19.240 --> 00:24:21.130
  • I didn't say--I didn't say shallow.
  • 00:24:21.140 --> 00:24:24.290
  • This stuff I'm talking about is deep-water stuff.
  • 00:24:25.000 --> 00:24:27.230
  • This ain't no shallow stuff.
  • 00:24:27.240 --> 00:24:30.260
  • Just because you remember stuff it doesn't mean it's shallow.
  • 00:24:30.270 --> 00:24:33.110
  • The genius of Christ's teaching was that 70% of his words,
  • 00:24:33.120 --> 00:24:39.030
  • read them, are words of application.
  • 00:24:39.040 --> 00:24:40.150
  • Only 30% were words of information.
  • 00:24:40.160 --> 00:24:42.240
  • That's why I use so many different visuals.
  • 00:24:42.250 --> 00:24:44.230
  • That's why we're a visually driven church.
  • 00:24:44.240 --> 00:24:47.030
  • It's not my idea or our church's idea.
  • 00:24:47.040 --> 00:24:49.060
  • We're just--it's just Jesus.
  • 00:24:49.070 --> 00:24:50.240
  • It's just Jesus, so I want you to understand that.
  • 00:24:50.250 --> 00:24:53.000
  • Don't muddle in the huddle. Don't confuse it.
  • 00:24:53.010 --> 00:24:55.280
  • Don't cuddle in the huddle.
  • 00:24:55.290 --> 00:24:59.230
  • Kumbaya, Lord.
  • 00:24:59.240 --> 00:25:02.110
  • What if everybody just started having a hug-a-lution
  • 00:25:02.120 --> 00:25:06.230
  • in the NFL huddles?
  • 00:25:06.240 --> 00:25:08.220
  • "It's not the time for the hug-a-lution.
  • 00:25:08.230 --> 00:25:10.230
  • We're on the field."
  • 00:25:10.240 --> 00:25:12.160
  • Now it's all about we have to empathize with one another,
  • 00:25:12.170 --> 00:25:15.130
  • help one another and all that, but we got about 25 seconds
  • 00:25:15.140 --> 00:25:19.200
  • in the huddle.
  • 00:25:19.210 --> 00:25:20.240
  • Boom! Matthew 28.
  • 00:25:20.250 --> 00:25:26.100
  • Boom!
  • 00:25:26.110 --> 00:25:27.140
  • Let's go on 3, so we're gonna be trustful in the huddle.
  • 00:25:27.150 --> 00:25:31.020
  • "Jesus, you're the author, the perfecter of our faith."
  • 00:25:31.030 --> 00:25:34.190

  • this for you and send it to you.

  • Also, too, I'm kind of a frustrated artist.
  • 00:25:59.200 --> 00:26:02.190
  • I have these fish shirts, because,
  • 00:26:02.200 --> 00:26:04.200
  • you know, Jesus said we're to fish for men,
  • 00:26:04.210 --> 00:26:08.010
  • and this is a cool long-sleeve shirt, and this is one.
  • 00:26:08.020 --> 00:26:12.110
  • I love shark fishing, and this is a shark shirt,
  • 00:26:12.120 --> 00:26:15.200
  • so we'll send you the book and a t-shirt--you can't beat
  • 00:26:15.210 --> 00:26:20.150
