  • 00:01:33.075 --> 00:01:37.045

  • the Navy.
  • 00:10:46.995 --> 00:10:48.296

  • on inside.
  • 00:11:01.810 --> 00:11:03.111
  • And I almost got kicked out ofthe Navy for, you know,
  • 00:11:03.144 --> 00:11:07.615
  • somethin' stupid, and it justwas a wake up call.
  • 00:11:07.649 --> 00:11:10.151
  • And I was just like, "Okay."
  • 00:11:10.185 --> 00:11:11.786
  • And then my mom got saved.
  • 00:11:11.820 --> 00:11:13.221
  • She was--during that time, shewas sending me Bible verses, and
  • 00:11:13.254 --> 00:11:16.858
  • you know, I was deleting thetext messages and stuff.
  • 00:11:16.891 --> 00:11:18.960
  • And then eventually the HolySpirit just, you know, planted
  • 00:11:18.993 --> 00:11:21.429
  • the seed and then I eventuallyjust kinda gave in.
  • 00:11:21.463 --> 00:11:24.632

  • and different things like that,but I never, like, wrote a song.
  • 00:11:41.816 --> 00:11:45.720

  • well-known worship leaders.
  • 00:11:56.097 --> 00:11:57.866
  • How did you get into songwritingand how has that--how did that
  • 00:11:57.899 --> 00:12:01.503
  • kinda come to be?
  • 00:12:01.536 --> 00:12:02.871
  • Ryan Ellis: Well, again, youknow, I sang most of my life,
  • 00:12:02.904 --> 00:12:06.074
  • but I never really sat down andwrote a song.
  • 00:12:06.107 --> 00:12:08.443
  • And then it wasn't until, youknow, back in 2011, 2012, when
  • 00:12:08.476 --> 00:12:14.549
  • I, you know, I started watching,I think like any worship leader
  • 00:12:14.582 --> 00:12:17.519
  • back then, I was--you know,Phil Wickham was pretty hot on
  • 00:12:17.552 --> 00:12:19.587
  • the streets, and I was like,"Okay, I'm going to try to be
  • 00:12:19.621 --> 00:12:21.723
  • like this guy."
  • 00:12:21.756 --> 00:12:23.258
  • And I just started picking up aguitar and just started playing
  • 00:12:23.291 --> 00:12:25.593
  • his songs, and then I startedsinging on my own, doing just
  • 00:12:25.627 --> 00:12:31.132
  • kind of alone prayer time andsinging to the Lord.
  • 00:12:31.166 --> 00:12:34.169
  • And then I'd come up with littletags, and then I'd just
  • 00:12:34.202 --> 00:12:36.504
  • incorporate that and I juststarted writing by myself.
  • 00:12:36.538 --> 00:12:40.341
  • And then along the way, youknow, I just met amazing people
  • 00:12:40.375 --> 00:12:44.345
  • who kind of brought me undertheir wing or just getting into
  • 00:12:44.379 --> 00:12:47.015
  • a writing room, writing with theguys that are out, you know,
  • 00:12:47.048 --> 00:12:51.386
  • doing this professionally.

  • 00:12:52.787 --> 00:12:54.989
  • tools, and so.

  • Bobby Schuller: What do youthink is that connection there
  • 00:12:56.391 --> 00:12:57.692
  • for David as a worship leader.
  • 00:12:57.725 --> 00:12:59.561
  • Is there's something about thatyou think that gave him power to
  • 00:12:59.594 --> 00:13:01.863
  • defeat Goliath, for example,other things like that?
  • 00:13:01.896 --> 00:13:04.232
  • Ryan Ellis: Yeah, I think musicholds, you know, a power in it.
  • 00:13:04.265 --> 00:13:08.770
  • You know, I think anybody--Imean, when I was in Afghanistan,
  • 00:13:08.803 --> 00:13:11.639
  • you're listening to something toget you hyped up, you know, to
  • 00:13:11.673 --> 00:13:14.876
  • go out into the battlefield.
  • 00:13:14.909 --> 00:13:18.580
  • And you know, I think music isa big part of who we are
  • 00:13:18.613 --> 00:13:21.115
  • as beings.
  • 00:13:21.149 --> 00:13:22.483
  • You know, there's a lot thatgoes into it.
  • 00:13:22.517 --> 00:13:23.818
  • I don't want to get tootheoretical, but you know,
  • 00:13:23.852 --> 00:13:25.486
  • I believe there's a specialthing that happens when a song's
  • 00:13:25.520 --> 00:13:28.756
  • created, you know?
  • 00:13:28.790 --> 00:13:30.091
  • You get a couple of people inthe room, whether it's just one
  • 00:13:30.124 --> 00:13:32.327
  • person who wrote the song, andthen you have the producer, and
  • 00:13:32.360 --> 00:13:34.562
  • then you have the A&R people.
  • 00:13:34.596 --> 00:13:36.197
  • There takes a team and aunification that, you know, is
  • 00:13:36.231 --> 00:13:39.200
  • needed to release a song.
  • 00:13:39.234 --> 00:13:41.102
  • And so I feel like even just inthat, God has--you know,
  • 00:13:41.135 --> 00:13:43.738
  • there's power in that becausethere's unity, and it says,
  • 00:13:43.771 --> 00:13:45.907
  • "Where two or three are gatheredin my name," you know?
  • 00:13:45.940 --> 00:13:49.377
  • So it will be done, and I thinka lot of people don't know that
  • 00:13:49.410 --> 00:13:51.679
  • they're operating, you know,with the Spirit of God
  • 00:13:51.713 --> 00:13:53.915
  • sometimes, you know, not knowingthat unification is a big part
  • 00:13:53.948 --> 00:13:56.885
  • of God.
  • 00:13:56.918 --> 00:13:58.253
  • And so when you're hearing songsand you're hearing these
  • 00:13:58.286 --> 00:13:59.587
  • different types of things,you're listening to something
  • 00:13:59.621 --> 00:14:03.491
  • God did in the Spirit and thenthen it fills your spirit too.
  • 00:14:03.524 --> 00:14:06.327
  • So I feel--yeah, I feel likethey played worship, you know,
  • 00:14:06.361 --> 00:14:10.198
  • before they went out to battleand it just gets you ready to
  • 00:14:10.231 --> 00:14:13.568
  • get in the right mind state--you know, state of mind to take
  • 00:14:13.601 --> 00:14:17.171
  • on the day.
  • 00:14:17.205 --> 00:14:18.539
  • Bobby Schuller: But really, youralbum's awesome and I--and one
  • 00:14:18.573 --> 00:14:20.008
  • of the things I love is you--you're able to go deeper
  • 00:14:20.041 --> 00:14:23.111
  • in your lyrics.
  • 00:14:23.144 --> 00:14:24.445
  • Your music is dynamic.
  • 00:14:24.479 --> 00:14:25.780
  • I just really--we loveyour music.
  • 00:14:25.813 --> 00:14:27.749
  • It's why you're here.
  • 00:14:27.782 --> 00:14:29.083
  • And I think that you do a greatjob at at helping people through
  • 00:14:29.117 --> 00:14:32.487
  • those times.
  • 00:14:32.520 --> 00:14:33.821
  • You're not afraid of going deepin your lyrics, are ya?
  • 00:14:33.855 --> 00:14:35.757
  • Ryan Ellis: I was afraid when Iwas writing it, you know,
  • 00:14:35.790 --> 00:14:37.558
  • because it's scary wheneveryou're doing something that's
  • 00:14:37.592 --> 00:14:40.595
  • vulnerable and not kind of thenorm, you know?
  • 00:14:40.628 --> 00:14:44.465
  • A lot of Christian music just isa lot of, you know, hymns and
  • 00:14:44.499 --> 00:14:48.503
  • talking about, you know, thegoodness of God, which is great,
  • 00:14:48.536 --> 00:14:52.307
  • but I think what's powerful iswhen you're actually able to
  • 00:14:52.340 --> 00:14:55.677
  • confess in your songs to whatyou're going through.
  • 00:14:55.710 --> 00:14:58.079
  • A lot of the songs that I haveon my last two albums, "Life"
  • 00:14:58.112 --> 00:15:01.449
  • and "Response," the "Life" ismore of a--more of
  • 00:15:01.482 --> 00:15:07.255
  • a poppy type of album,and then "Life--"
  • 00:15:07.288 --> 00:15:10.591
  • or the "Response"is more of a worship.
  • 00:15:10.625 --> 00:15:11.960
  • And the dynamic of the two waswhen I was writing the worship
  • 00:15:11.993 --> 00:15:14.128
  • album, I was like, "Well, I'malso writing these songs that
  • 00:15:14.162 --> 00:15:16.097
  • are really real," and so Iwanted to put both of them out
  • 00:15:16.130 --> 00:15:18.766
  • to where you can kind of hearthe whole journey, like David in
  • 00:15:18.800 --> 00:15:21.302
  • Psalms, where I'm worshiping,but you're also hearing the real
  • 00:15:21.336 --> 00:15:24.005
  • stuff as well.
  • 00:15:24.038 --> 00:15:26.140

  • Bobby Schuller: Well, all of youwho are at home or even here,
  • 00:26:46.053 --> 00:26:48.022
  • would you stand with us?
  • 00:26:48.055 --> 00:26:49.356
  • We're gonna say this creedtogether as we do every
  • 00:26:49.390 --> 00:26:50.991
  • single Sunday.
  • 00:26:51.025 --> 00:26:52.326
  • Hold your hands out like this asa way of receiving from the Lord
  • 00:26:52.359 --> 00:26:56.964
  • and let's say this together.
  • 00:26:56.997 --> 00:26:59.667
  • I'm not what I do.I'm not what I have.
  • 00:26:59.700 --> 00:27:04.071
  • I'm not what peoplesay about me.
  • 00:27:04.104 --> 00:27:06.707
  • I am the beloved of God.It's who I am.
  • 00:27:06.740 --> 00:27:11.178
  • No one can take it from me.I don't have to worry.
  • 00:27:11.211 --> 00:27:15.416
  • I don't have to hurry.
  • 00:27:15.449 --> 00:27:17.351
  • I can trust my friend Jesus andshare his love with the world.
  • 00:27:17.384 --> 00:27:22.356
  • Thanks, you can be seated.
  • 00:27:22.389 --> 00:27:24.825
  • Well, it's an interesting time.
  • 00:27:24.858 --> 00:27:26.193
  • I'm hesitant to say this becauseI think I said something like
  • 00:27:26.226 --> 00:27:28.729
  • this back in July, but here weare going into fall, and it's
  • 00:27:28.762 --> 00:27:32.666
  • feeling a little like springduring this COVID time.
  • 00:27:32.700 --> 00:27:36.270
  • You know, nothing's blastingopen, but little green shoots
  • 00:27:36.303 --> 00:27:40.040
  • are starting to pop up withinthe restaurant community and
  • 00:27:40.074 --> 00:27:43.944
  • entertainment world.
  • 00:27:43.977 --> 00:27:45.679
  • And all of the things that weused to enjoy and probably take
  • 00:27:45.713 --> 00:27:49.683
  • for granted, they're starting tosort of come back slowly.
  • 00:27:49.717 --> 00:27:54.555
  • One of those things Hannahand I--we have this favorite
  • 00:27:54.588 --> 00:27:56.824
  • restaurant, it's calledSideDoor.
  • 00:27:56.857 --> 00:27:58.859
  • And it's kind of a relaxed,casual, tag-on restaurant that
  • 00:27:58.892 --> 00:28:03.263
  • shares a kitchen with a veryexpensive, like, you go there on
  • 00:28:03.297 --> 00:28:07.434
  • your anniversary type restaurantcalled Five Crowns.
  • 00:28:07.468 --> 00:28:10.137
  • And basically what they do isthey take the expensive food
  • 00:28:10.170 --> 00:28:13.173
  • from Five Crowns, and they chopit up and they serve it as
  • 00:28:13.207 --> 00:28:16.443
  • normal-priced food at SideDoor,and you can wear your blue jeans
  • 00:28:16.477 --> 00:28:19.680
  • and t-shirt and get it there.
  • 00:28:19.713 --> 00:28:21.048
  • Well, they finally just reopenedthis restaurant, SideDoor,
  • 00:28:21.081 --> 00:28:23.684
  • and I got to have myfavorite thing ever.
  • 00:28:23.717 --> 00:28:25.352
  • It's a prime rib sandwich.
  • 00:28:25.385 --> 00:28:27.554
  • And Hannah and I were therea couple of weeks ago
  • 00:28:27.588 --> 00:28:29.156
  • because they just opened upthis outdoor garden.
  • 00:28:29.189 --> 00:28:31.725
  • I even saw a church member theretoo and it was just so nice.
  • 00:28:31.759 --> 00:28:35.596
  • I mean, I've always enjoyed thesandwich, but there was
  • 00:28:35.629 --> 00:28:37.431
  • something about being back at myfavorite restaurant, having my
  • 00:28:37.464 --> 00:28:42.002
  • favorite sandwich, seeing afriend from church, being with
  • 00:28:42.035 --> 00:28:46.240
  • my best friend in the world, mywife, and just having a
  • 00:28:46.273 --> 00:28:49.843
  • good evening.
  • 00:28:49.877 --> 00:28:51.211
  • And some of us are forgetting--it's like almost as the world
  • 00:28:51.245 --> 00:28:54.648
  • begins to reopen, we areremembering, you know, how
  • 00:28:54.681 --> 00:28:59.520
  • special these things were.
  • 00:28:59.553 --> 00:29:01.455
  • Perhaps the silver lining ofthis all is that we are
  • 00:29:01.488 --> 00:29:04.792
  • remembering really one of thehearts of the Scripture, one of
  • 00:29:04.825 --> 00:29:10.364
  • the hard lessons that theScripture always says, that God
  • 00:29:10.397 --> 00:29:12.800
  • opposes the proud and protectsthe weak; that there are things
  • 00:29:12.833 --> 00:29:18.038
  • in this world that seem strong,powerful, amazing, but are
  • 00:29:18.071 --> 00:29:22.442
  • actually fragile.
  • 00:29:22.476 --> 00:29:23.777
  • I mean, you actually see that asociety that we thought was so
  • 00:29:23.811 --> 00:29:27.915
  • strong and an economy that wethought would just maybe go
  • 00:29:27.948 --> 00:29:31.518
  • forever, maybe a lot of usdidn't think that, but that it
  • 00:29:31.552 --> 00:29:35.355
  • was actually quite brittle; thatall it took was one tiny germ to
  • 00:29:35.389 --> 00:29:40.761
  • bring down this whole system,just one tiny invisible thing to
  • 00:29:40.794 --> 00:29:45.666
  • bring everything to screechinghalt.
  • 00:29:45.699 --> 00:29:48.235
  • And maybe the silver lining inall of this is to remember that
  • 00:29:48.268 --> 00:29:53.807
  • there are some things in thisworld that seem robust that are
  • 00:29:53.841 --> 00:29:56.643
  • actually fragile, and there areother things that seem fragile
  • 00:29:56.677 --> 00:30:00.380
  • that are actually quite robust.
  • 00:30:00.414 --> 00:30:02.249
  • Things like your relationships,things like your faith, and
  • 00:30:02.282 --> 00:30:07.387
  • especially things like the humanspirit, to wake up in the
  • 00:30:07.421 --> 00:30:10.557
  • morning and to believe thatthere is a world before me full
  • 00:30:10.591 --> 00:30:15.162
  • of opportunity and to believethat God has called me to be
  • 00:30:15.195 --> 00:30:19.399
  • something in that world.
  • 00:30:19.433 --> 00:30:21.068
  • And God has called you to besomething in that world.
  • 00:30:21.101 --> 00:30:25.439
  • All of this to simply say,I wonder if COVID is,
  • 00:30:25.472 --> 00:30:29.676
  • in a way, a reset.
  • 00:30:29.710 --> 00:30:31.345
  • It's a way for us as Americans,or whatever nationality you are,
  • 00:30:31.378 --> 00:30:35.382
  • to think about what reallymatters.
  • 00:30:35.415 --> 00:30:39.419
  • What does it really meanto be strong?
  • 00:30:39.453 --> 00:30:42.623
  • What does it really meanto be a tough person
  • 00:30:42.656 --> 00:30:45.893
  • in a tough situation?
  • 00:30:45.926 --> 00:30:48.195
  • And what does it mean to grow inhere and in here rather than
  • 00:30:48.228 --> 00:30:54.034
  • out here?
  • 00:30:54.067 --> 00:30:55.469
  • I feel like, you know, living inthe greater Los Angeles area, we
  • 00:30:55.502 --> 00:30:58.672
  • live in Orange County, butSouthern California I feel like
  • 00:30:58.705 --> 00:31:02.175
  • many times can be a very shallowplace where what matters is
  • 00:31:02.209 --> 00:31:06.747
  • what's out here, how you look,or your social media, or your
  • 00:31:06.780 --> 00:31:10.817
  • popularity, or being young.
  • 00:31:10.851 --> 00:31:14.321
  • But in the in the kingdom ofGod, really those things
  • 00:31:14.354 --> 00:31:19.693
  • don't matter.
  • 00:31:19.726 --> 00:31:21.028
  • They're not bad,but they don't matter.
  • 00:31:21.061 --> 00:31:22.396
  • They're not an indicator ofwhat's happening in your heart
  • 00:31:22.429 --> 00:31:26.033
  • and what's happeningin your mind.
  • 00:31:26.066 --> 00:31:28.235
  • And then at the end of the day,God wants disciples who,
  • 00:31:28.268 --> 00:31:31.338
  • although they may enjoy some ofthose other things, they don't
  • 00:31:31.371 --> 00:31:33.607
  • really matter.
  • 00:31:33.640 --> 00:31:34.942
  • What really matters is yourwill, your heart, and your mind,
  • 00:31:34.975 --> 00:31:39.046
  • what you think about, whatyou're learning, how you're
  • 00:31:39.079 --> 00:31:41.982
  • growing as a person.
  • 00:31:42.015 --> 00:31:43.317
  • See, those things areanti-fragile.
  • 00:31:43.350 --> 00:31:45.886
  • Those are the things that trulymake you tough.
  • 00:31:45.919 --> 00:31:49.756
  • And this is at the heart ofJesus's rabbinic teaching when
  • 00:31:49.790 --> 00:31:52.592
  • he talks about the wisdom oflife, that, you know, Jesus says
  • 00:31:52.626 --> 00:31:56.530
  • that those who are last will befirst and those who are first
  • 00:31:56.563 --> 00:32:00.267
  • will be last.
  • 00:32:00.300 --> 00:32:01.635
  • Those who try to save theirlives will lose it, but those
  • 00:32:01.668 --> 00:32:04.171
  • who lose their lives for thesake of the gospel will gain it.
  • 00:32:04.204 --> 00:32:08.008
  • And this is the theme of thewhole Bible and it's not just in
  • 00:32:08.041 --> 00:32:11.311
  • the New Testament.
  • 00:32:11.345 --> 00:32:12.679
  • It's in the Old Testament aswell that God wants to do
  • 00:32:12.713 --> 00:32:15.549
  • something more than what we seeon the outside.
  • 00:32:15.582 --> 00:32:18.118
  • He wants to do something withinyou that's gonna make you
  • 00:32:18.151 --> 00:32:20.921
  • tougher than a coffin nail.
  • 00:32:20.954 --> 00:32:22.823
  • You've got something in youthat's gonna help you get
  • 00:32:22.856 --> 00:32:25.492
  • through the other things thatare coming.
  • 00:32:25.525 --> 00:32:29.262
  • It's interesting because one ofthese famous Old Testament
  • 00:32:29.296 --> 00:32:32.332
  • stories kind of bothered me alot until I saw a rabbi talk
  • 00:32:32.366 --> 00:32:37.704
  • about it on Youtube.
  • 00:32:37.738 --> 00:32:40.073
  • It's a story about Moses.
  • 00:32:40.107 --> 00:32:41.441
  • You know, maybe the greatestprophet in the Old Testament.
  • 00:32:41.475 --> 00:32:44.444
  • Certainly in Judaism consideredthe greatest one.
  • 00:32:44.478 --> 00:32:48.448
  • You know, Moses does all ofthese amazing things for God,
  • 00:32:48.482 --> 00:32:51.118
  • and wanders through thewilderness, and leads
  • 00:32:51.151 --> 00:32:53.620
  • these people.
  • 00:32:53.653 --> 00:32:54.988
  • And in the end, he is punishedby God and not allowed to enter
  • 00:32:55.022 --> 00:32:59.659
  • in the promised land.
  • 00:32:59.693 --> 00:33:01.028
  • Do you know why?
  • 00:33:01.061 --> 00:33:02.362
  • To me when I read this, youknow, in college or whatever,
  • 00:33:02.396 --> 00:33:05.732
  • it bothered me so much.
  • 00:33:05.766 --> 00:33:07.868
  • It seemed like sucha silly thing.
  • 00:33:07.901 --> 00:33:10.837
  • There are two times that Moseshits a rock and water comes out.
  • 00:33:10.871 --> 00:33:15.542
  • The first time Godtells him to do that.
  • 00:33:15.575 --> 00:33:17.277
  • You know, they're in thewilderness and they're thirsty,
  • 00:33:17.310 --> 00:33:18.812
  • and God--Moses--God tells Moses,
  • 00:33:18.845 --> 00:33:20.781
  • "Hit this rock and waterwill come out."
  • 00:33:20.814 --> 00:33:23.250
  • He just goes wham, and the rockbreaks, and water comes out, and
  • 00:33:23.283 --> 00:33:25.152
  • they drink of it, and they'renourished.
  • 00:33:25.185 --> 00:33:27.521
  • But then there's a second timelater on in the book where God
  • 00:33:27.554 --> 00:33:31.191
  • tells Moses to speak to therock, "Speak to the rock and
  • 00:33:31.224 --> 00:33:35.929
  • water will come, out."
  • 00:33:35.962 --> 00:33:37.264
  • But Moses doesn't speak to therock, he hits the rock.
  • 00:33:37.297 --> 00:33:40.333
  • He's also angry at the time, andit doesn't break.
  • 00:33:40.367 --> 00:33:43.703
  • And it's like God gives him asecond chance, "Don't do it.
  • 00:33:43.737 --> 00:33:46.506
  • Don't hit the rock.
  • 00:33:46.540 --> 00:33:47.874
  • Speak to the rock," and stillMoses hit the rock.
  • 00:33:47.908 --> 00:33:51.211
  • And interestingly enough, waterstill comes out and the people
  • 00:33:51.244 --> 00:33:54.581
  • still drink of it.
  • 00:33:54.614 --> 00:33:56.049
  • But God says, "Because you hitthe rock and didn't speak to the
  • 00:33:56.083 --> 00:34:00.020
  • rock, I will not allow you toenter the promised land."
  • 00:34:00.053 --> 00:34:04.124
  • What on Earth does that mean?
  • 00:34:04.157 --> 00:34:06.293
  • Well, I didn't know this becausewhen I had read it I was reading
  • 00:34:06.326 --> 00:34:08.462
  • it through the eyes ofa Westernized Christian,
  • 00:34:08.495 --> 00:34:10.297
  • a modern Christian.
  • 00:34:10.330 --> 00:34:11.832
  • But when I saw it through theeyes of an ancient Israeli
  • 00:34:11.865 --> 00:34:14.234
  • through a rabbi, he said manyrabbis believe that this is
  • 00:34:14.267 --> 00:34:18.438
  • God's way of saying that,"Before you entered the promised
  • 00:34:18.472 --> 00:34:21.374
  • land, it was all aboutmight is right.
  • 00:34:21.408 --> 00:34:24.044
  • It was all about what'son the outside.
  • 00:34:24.077 --> 00:34:26.346
  • But in order to enter thepromised land, I want you to be
  • 00:34:26.379 --> 00:34:28.682
  • a thinking people.
  • 00:34:28.715 --> 00:34:30.083
  • I want you to bea speaking people."
  • 00:34:30.117 --> 00:34:31.718
  • In other words, it was a lessonthat brains over bronze,
  • 00:34:31.751 --> 00:34:35.722
  • a lesson of the pen is mightierthan the sword, these other
  • 00:34:35.755 --> 00:34:38.925
  • axioms that we live by that Godwas--wanted the Israelites to
  • 00:34:38.959 --> 00:34:42.829
  • trust that there is somethingmore than just, "I hit rock,
  • 00:34:42.863 --> 00:34:46.466
  • water come out."
  • 00:34:46.500 --> 00:34:47.801
  • God wanted Israel--the Jewishpeople to understand this idea
  • 00:34:47.834 --> 00:34:53.807
  • of what would later be calledrabbinic Judaism, and that would
  • 00:34:53.840 --> 00:34:56.576
  • morph for us into Christianity.
  • 00:34:56.610 --> 00:34:59.212
  • Okay, all of this to simply sayI believe at the heart of so
  • 00:34:59.246 --> 00:35:02.649
  • much of the Bible is this ideathat the hidden strengths, the
  • 00:35:02.682 --> 00:35:08.188
  • hidden strengths in our society,in our lives, are the most
  • 00:35:08.221 --> 00:35:11.124
  • powerful ones.
  • 00:35:11.158 --> 00:35:12.492
  • You have so muchstrength within you.
  • 00:35:12.526 --> 00:35:14.728
  • You have so many things thatyou've learned that people don't
  • 00:35:14.761 --> 00:35:16.530
  • even know about, so manyexperiences that people don't
  • 00:35:16.563 --> 00:35:19.132
  • know about.
  • 00:35:19.166 --> 00:35:20.500
  • And God is going to maybe inviteyou into environments that you
  • 00:35:20.534 --> 00:35:24.237
  • might feel uncomfortable.
  • 00:35:24.271 --> 00:35:25.572
  • Everybody's gonna look down onyou and people aren't going to
  • 00:35:25.605 --> 00:35:27.174
  • think you can do anything, butGod has you there for a reason.
  • 00:35:27.207 --> 00:35:30.610
  • And God's gonna use the thingsthat he's carried you through to
  • 00:35:30.644 --> 00:35:34.915
  • be a leader in those situations.
  • 00:35:34.948 --> 00:35:36.783
  • I believe that for you.
  • 00:35:36.816 --> 00:35:38.685
  • Okay, we finally getto the passage.
  • 00:35:38.718 --> 00:35:40.654
  • I get to preach on David andGoliath, maybe the most preached
  • 00:35:40.687 --> 00:35:43.757
  • on passage in the Bible.
  • 00:35:43.790 --> 00:35:46.459
  • It is so wrapped up in BronzeAge history, which is stuff that
  • 00:35:46.493 --> 00:35:50.630
  • I really enjoy.
  • 00:35:50.664 --> 00:35:51.965
  • And many people, manypastors in particular,
  • 00:35:51.998 --> 00:35:54.467
  • get this passage wrong.
  • 00:35:54.501 --> 00:35:55.802
  • They see it as a miracle story.
  • 00:35:55.835 --> 00:35:58.071
  • There are many miracle storiesin the Bible and they all really
  • 00:35:58.104 --> 00:36:00.874
  • happened, but I don't thinkDavid and Goliath is a
  • 00:36:00.907 --> 00:36:04.778
  • miracle story.
  • 00:36:04.811 --> 00:36:06.112
  • It's a moral story.
  • 00:36:06.146 --> 00:36:09.049
  • It's a story about how peoplesee the outside and not
  • 00:36:09.082 --> 00:36:13.920
  • the inside.
  • 00:36:13.954 --> 00:36:15.989
  • It's a story about how thetruest soldiers are the ones who
  • 00:36:16.022 --> 00:36:21.328
  • understand the weaknesses oftheir opponents.
  • 00:36:21.361 --> 00:36:24.531
  • So, you know, ironically,Malcolm Gladwell, a secular
  • 00:36:24.564 --> 00:36:27.434
  • author, is one of the few peoplewho got this right.
  • 00:36:27.467 --> 00:36:29.135
  • Now, I would recommend that youread his book.
  • 00:36:29.169 --> 00:36:30.837
  • It's more on business than it ison on theology, but you know,
  • 00:36:30.870 --> 00:36:34.441
  • it's interesting.
  • 00:36:34.474 --> 00:36:36.810
  • The Bible does say the firstking of Israel--God's people
  • 00:36:36.843 --> 00:36:39.980
  • wanted a king.
  • 00:36:40.013 --> 00:36:41.381
  • They didn't want judges and theydidn't want God to be
  • 00:36:41.414 --> 00:36:43.483
  • their king.
  • 00:36:43.516 --> 00:36:44.818
  • They wanted an actual king sothey could be like the other
  • 00:36:44.851 --> 00:36:47.387
  • nations of the world.
  • 00:36:47.420 --> 00:36:49.122
  • And Samuel finds this guynamed Saul, Shaul.
  • 00:36:49.155 --> 00:36:53.860
  • And Saul, the Bible says, is thebest looking man in Israel.
  • 00:36:53.893 --> 00:36:58.565
  • It'd be interesting to know whatthat guy looked like, you know?
  • 00:36:58.598 --> 00:37:01.368
  • It's interesting 'cause beautythings change over time,
  • 00:37:01.401 --> 00:37:03.470
  • but it'll be--I bet you anythingif we saw a picture,
  • 00:37:03.503 --> 00:37:05.238
  • we'd be like, "That guy?"
  • 00:37:05.272 --> 00:37:06.640
  • But anyway, Saul in his day isconsidered the best looking man
  • 00:37:06.673 --> 00:37:12.345
  • in all of Israel.
  • 00:37:12.379 --> 00:37:13.880
  • And the Bible wants you to seethis, that this is important,
  • 00:37:13.913 --> 00:37:15.949
  • and that he stands a head tallerthan everyone.
  • 00:37:15.982 --> 00:37:19.286
  • So he's this tall, GeorgeWashington-type, good-looking
  • 00:37:19.319 --> 00:37:24.257
  • guy, and he's chosento be the first king.
  • 00:37:24.291 --> 00:37:27.227
  • And believe it or not, the HolySpirit comes upon Saul.
  • 00:37:27.260 --> 00:37:30.230
  • Saul even prophesies and leadsin the Spirit, but eventually
  • 00:37:30.263 --> 00:37:34.734
  • loses his walk with God, doesevil against God, and God says,
  • 00:37:34.768 --> 00:37:38.805
  • "I have turned my face away fromSaul and I'm gonna find
  • 00:37:38.838 --> 00:37:42.876
  • someone else."
  • 00:37:42.909 --> 00:37:44.210
  • And he tells Samuel the Prophet,"Go to Jesse's house
  • 00:37:44.244 --> 00:37:47.180
  • in Bethlehem.
  • 00:37:47.213 --> 00:37:48.548
  • The future king is there."
  • 00:37:48.581 --> 00:37:50.984
  • Samuel goes to Bethlehem.
  • 00:37:51.017 --> 00:37:53.153
  • They're all afraid of himbecause he's this powerful man
  • 00:37:53.186 --> 00:37:55.689
  • of God.
  • 00:37:55.722 --> 00:37:57.023
  • And they were like,"Do you come in peace?"
  • 00:37:57.057 --> 00:37:58.391
  • He said, "I come in peace."
  • 00:37:58.425 --> 00:37:59.726
  • And he goes before Jesse'shouse, and Jesse brings before
  • 00:37:59.759 --> 00:38:02.829
  • him seven of his eight sons.
  • 00:38:02.862 --> 00:38:05.999
  • The first son that he sees,named Eliab, Samuel sees him,
  • 00:38:06.032 --> 00:38:11.671
  • and just like Saul, he'sgood-looking, he's tall.
  • 00:38:11.705 --> 00:38:16.042
  • And Samuel looks at him andsays, "Surely this is the
  • 00:38:16.076 --> 00:38:20.947
  • Lord's anointed."
  • 00:38:20.980 --> 00:38:24.084
  • And God's response to Samuel isone of my favorite Bible verses.
  • 00:38:24.117 --> 00:38:28.788
  • God says, "Do not consider hisappearance or his height,
  • 00:38:28.822 --> 00:38:35.929
  • for I have rejected him.
  • 00:38:35.962 --> 00:38:39.366
  • The Lord does not look at thethings people look at.
  • 00:38:39.399 --> 00:38:45.638
  • People look at the outwardappearance, but the Lord looks
  • 00:38:45.672 --> 00:38:51.211
  • at the heart."
  • 00:38:51.244 --> 00:38:53.346
  • The Lord looks at the heart.
  • 00:38:53.380 --> 00:38:56.316
  • When we hear "heart" asWesterners, we hear emotions.
  • 00:38:56.349 --> 00:38:59.319
  • In the Bible, the heart is themoral center.
  • 00:38:59.352 --> 00:39:02.856
  • It's the will.
  • 00:39:02.889 --> 00:39:04.190
  • It's is this a good person andis this a brave person?
  • 00:39:04.224 --> 00:39:08.495
  • It's a person that chooses whatis right even when it's hard.
  • 00:39:08.528 --> 00:39:14.000
  • And this is who God is going tochoose as Israel's next king,
  • 00:39:14.033 --> 00:39:17.737
  • someone with a good heart,someone like you.
  • 00:39:17.771 --> 00:39:24.911
  • The world looks at the outwardappearance, but the Lord sees
  • 00:39:24.944 --> 00:39:27.180
  • the heart.
  • 00:39:27.213 --> 00:39:28.515
  • You know what the Lordsees in you?
  • 00:39:28.548 --> 00:39:29.883
  • He sees someone that is socapable of doing what is right
  • 00:39:29.916 --> 00:39:33.853
  • when it is so easy to do what iswrong, someone who is willing to
  • 00:39:33.887 --> 00:39:39.592
  • stand in the gap.
  • 00:39:39.626 --> 00:39:40.960
  • That is who God's called you.
  • 00:39:40.994 --> 00:39:42.295
  • So God says, "No,it's not Eliab."
  • 00:39:42.328 --> 00:39:47.367
  • And all of these sons comebefore Samuel, and most of them
  • 00:39:47.400 --> 00:39:50.937
  • are good-looking, you know, andburly, and strong, and all the
  • 00:39:50.970 --> 00:39:53.673
  • things that they would value.
  • 00:39:53.706 --> 00:39:55.341
  • And finally Samuel, after seeingseven sons, says, "Is there no
  • 00:39:55.375 --> 00:39:59.879
  • one left?"
  • 00:39:59.913 --> 00:40:01.648
  • And Jesse says, "Oh yeah,there's David.
  • 00:40:01.681 --> 00:40:06.986
  • He's out taking care of thesheep."
  • 00:40:07.020 --> 00:40:08.321
  • Can you imagine if your dadtalked about you that way?
  • 00:40:08.354 --> 00:40:10.657
  • You're the youngestof eight sons.
  • 00:40:10.690 --> 00:40:12.158
  • He's like, "Oh, I guessthere's David.
  • 00:40:12.192 --> 00:40:14.561
  • He's the guy that's doing allthe work out in the back, taking
  • 00:40:14.594 --> 00:40:17.730
  • care of the sheep."
  • 00:40:17.764 --> 00:40:19.299
  • And so Jesse says,"Bring him before me."
  • 00:40:19.332 --> 00:40:22.068
  • You know, I also want to pointout that David is good-looking,
  • 00:40:22.101 --> 00:40:25.038
  • because some of you are verygood looking.
  • 00:40:25.071 --> 00:40:27.340
  • I'm just gonna be honest.
  • 00:40:27.373 --> 00:40:28.708
  • I've seen some of you.
  • 00:40:28.741 --> 00:40:30.043
  • Some of you dress very nice.
  • 00:40:30.076 --> 00:40:31.411
  • You look very nice.
  • 00:40:31.444 --> 00:40:32.745
  • And David is good-looking too,so it's not--you don't want to
  • 00:40:32.779 --> 00:40:35.815
  • be like, "Oh, it's bad to begood-looking," you know?
  • 00:40:35.849 --> 00:40:38.351
  • But it's more that looks is justsuch a stupid indicator of
  • 00:40:38.384 --> 00:40:43.022
  • what's really going oninside of a person.
  • 00:40:43.056 --> 00:40:46.192
  • There's just almost nothing youcan derive from how a person
  • 00:40:46.226 --> 00:40:49.295
  • looks truly in how God seestheir heart and what's happening
  • 00:40:49.329 --> 00:40:53.867
  • in their mind, and that veryoften it's easy to be deceived.
  • 00:40:53.900 --> 00:40:56.970
  • You can hire or pick the wrongperson based on their looks.
  • 00:40:57.003 --> 00:41:01.007
  • I think we have severalpoliticians who fit that
  • 00:41:01.040 --> 00:41:03.042
  • category, you know?
  • 00:41:03.076 --> 00:41:04.410
  • That there's--this happens allthe time, where people win
  • 00:41:04.444 --> 00:41:06.412
  • popularity contests even thoughthey're incompetent.
  • 00:41:06.446 --> 00:41:09.649
  • So David comes before Samuel,and he's anointed as king, and
  • 00:41:09.682 --> 00:41:15.421
  • then it says that the Spirit ofthe Lord comes upon David.
  • 00:41:15.455 --> 00:41:20.393
  • And then after that, it says,"And the Spirit of the Lord
  • 00:41:20.426 --> 00:41:22.395
  • leaves Saul."
  • 00:41:22.428 --> 00:41:23.730
  • So it's almost like--it'salmost like the Spirit of God
  • 00:41:23.763 --> 00:41:27.100
  • goes from Saul to David, eventhough Saul is still king.
  • 00:41:27.133 --> 00:41:31.471
  • And then in replace of thatcomes an evil spirit that begins
  • 00:41:31.504 --> 00:41:35.308
  • to torment Saul.
  • 00:41:35.341 --> 00:41:36.643
  • And guess what happens?
  • 00:41:36.676 --> 00:41:38.011
  • Saul hears about David, heinvites him into his court, and
  • 00:41:38.044 --> 00:41:41.814
  • David plays the lire and singsto Saul.
  • 00:41:41.848 --> 00:41:44.851
  • Whenever the spirit, this evilspirit, comes upon him, the good
  • 00:41:44.884 --> 00:41:48.521
  • spirit, the Holy Spirit fromDavid, overcomes and brings
  • 00:41:48.555 --> 00:41:52.225
  • peace to Saul.
  • 00:41:52.258 --> 00:41:53.960
  • Well, we all know the story.
  • 00:41:53.993 --> 00:41:55.628
  • Eventually there is this greatstand-off between the
  • 00:41:55.662 --> 00:41:58.298
  • Philistines and the Jews andthey are lined up as two armies.
  • 00:41:58.331 --> 00:42:03.937
  • And days have gone on wherethe two camps--there's like
  • 00:42:03.970 --> 00:42:06.806
  • a valley in the middleand there's, like, two hills,
  • 00:42:06.839 --> 00:42:10.109
  • and they're on either hill andno one wants to ascend the
  • 00:42:10.143 --> 00:42:12.278
  • other hill.
  • 00:42:12.312 --> 00:42:13.613
  • And there is this soldier, thisPhilistine soldier named
  • 00:42:13.646 --> 00:42:16.182
  • Goliath, right?
  • 00:42:16.215 --> 00:42:17.517
  • And Goliath, for 40 days, everysingle day, he's this giant guy
  • 00:42:17.550 --> 00:42:21.921
  • and he comes out and he beginsto curse the armies of God.
  • 00:42:21.955 --> 00:42:26.893
  • For 40 days, continues to shout,and mock, and mock God, and mock
  • 00:42:26.926 --> 00:42:32.699
  • the Jews, and justcontinue to belittle.
  • 00:42:32.732 --> 00:42:35.468
  • And what are they gonna do?
  • 00:42:35.501 --> 00:42:36.803
  • This guy's--he's a giant.
  • 00:42:36.836 --> 00:42:38.171
  • He's 9 feet tall.
  • 00:42:38.204 --> 00:42:40.306
  • Let's talk a little bitabout Goliath.
  • 00:42:40.340 --> 00:42:44.010
  • You know, Goliath hadall of this armor.
  • 00:42:44.043 --> 00:42:47.647
  • He's a Philistine.
  • 00:42:47.680 --> 00:42:50.316
  • Philistines are originally fromthe island of Crete.
  • 00:42:50.350 --> 00:42:53.886
  • They came over to Israel.
  • 00:42:53.920 --> 00:42:55.221
  • It's where we get the namePalestine from.
  • 00:42:55.254 --> 00:42:58.057
  • And he's a heavy infantryman,so he's like
  • 00:42:58.091 --> 00:43:00.360
  • just a giant with--he's like a tank.
  • 00:43:00.393 --> 00:43:02.762
  • So not only is he a huge guy,he's got armor,
  • 00:43:02.795 --> 00:43:04.731
  • and he's got weapons.
  • 00:43:04.764 --> 00:43:06.833
  • And the Bible saysthat he's 6 cubits tall.
  • 00:43:06.866 --> 00:43:10.770
  • Listen to these numbers, okay?
  • 00:43:10.803 --> 00:43:13.239
  • Not everybody agrees to this,but Jews love to point this out.
  • 00:43:13.272 --> 00:43:15.742
  • Remember, they memorizethis passage.
  • 00:43:15.775 --> 00:43:18.011
  • He's 6 cubits tall, has sixweapons, and his spearhead
  • 00:43:18.044 --> 00:43:24.050
  • is 6.000 shekels.
  • 00:43:24.083 --> 00:43:25.618
  • Did you catch that?
  • 00:43:25.652 --> 00:43:27.487
  • Let's name those three numbers:6, 6, 6.000.
  • 00:43:27.520 --> 00:43:33.726
  • The Bible's trying to show youthat in Goliath, he epitomizes
  • 00:43:33.760 --> 00:43:39.932
  • everything that is Satan, oreverything that is the kingdom
  • 00:43:39.966 --> 00:43:42.735
  • of darkness, or everything thatis evil.
  • 00:43:42.769 --> 00:43:45.605
  • Strong on the outside, big,burly, scary, I will defy you,
  • 00:43:45.638 --> 00:43:52.512
  • insulting, proud, right?
  • 00:43:52.545 --> 00:43:55.682
  • But what we find is that what'sactually going on with Goliath
  • 00:43:55.715 --> 00:43:58.818
  • might be something else.
  • 00:43:58.851 --> 00:44:01.888
  • He's terrifying.
  • 00:44:01.921 --> 00:44:03.222
  • He's terrifying, but maybethere's something else going on
  • 00:44:03.256 --> 00:44:06.592
  • in Goliath's body.
  • 00:44:06.626 --> 00:44:08.461
  • When I read about Goliath,I can't help but think
  • 00:44:08.494 --> 00:44:12.965
  • of the icon, Andre the Giant.
  • 00:44:12.999 --> 00:44:16.102
  • I saw this--I already likedAndre the Giant
  • 00:44:16.135 --> 00:44:18.371
  • when I was a kid.
  • 00:44:18.404 --> 00:44:19.772
  • He was a professional wrestlerand he played this character
  • 00:44:19.806 --> 00:44:23.042
  • in "The Princess Bride"where he says--
  • 00:44:23.076 --> 00:44:25.845
  • you know, he keeps rhyming,and it's just a fun character.
  • 00:44:25.878 --> 00:44:28.581
  • And Andre the Giant was this,you know, larger than life guy.
  • 00:44:28.614 --> 00:44:32.452
  • I think he was French.
  • 00:44:32.485 --> 00:44:34.120
  • An amazing documentary on himfrom HBO that I really enjoyed,
  • 00:44:34.153 --> 00:44:37.724
  • and you get an understandingfor, you know, in this
  • 00:44:37.757 --> 00:44:40.159
  • wrestling, he was alwaysthe bad guy, but in real life
  • 00:44:40.193 --> 00:44:42.528
  • he was a good guy.
  • 00:44:42.562 --> 00:44:44.530
  • On the outside, you would seehe's just like brawl,
  • 00:44:44.564 --> 00:44:46.933
  • just big, strong.
  • 00:44:46.966 --> 00:44:48.868
  • We have a picture of his handholding up a can of beer.
  • 00:44:48.901 --> 00:44:52.438
  • That gives you an ideaof how massive this guy--
  • 00:44:52.472 --> 00:44:55.842
  • that is a can.
  • 00:44:55.875 --> 00:44:57.176
  • That is a 12-ounce can of beerin the hands of Andre
  • 00:44:57.210 --> 00:45:00.813
  • the Giant, okay?
  • 00:45:00.847 --> 00:45:02.482
  • Now, Goliath would have beenabout a little bit bigger than
  • 00:45:02.515 --> 00:45:04.550
  • Andre the Giant,but look at that.
  • 00:45:04.584 --> 00:45:06.552
  • Imagine that thing coming at youlike a fist towards your head,
  • 00:45:06.586 --> 00:45:09.455
  • you know?
  • 00:45:09.489 --> 00:45:10.790
  • That would be a scary thing.
  • 00:45:10.823 --> 00:45:12.158
  • And so Goliath--and so Andrethe Giant was this big guy, but
  • 00:45:12.191 --> 00:45:16.129
  • in real life if you were tospend time with this giant, you
  • 00:45:16.162 --> 00:45:19.432
  • would find that he has actuallya disorder that most giants have
  • 00:45:19.465 --> 00:45:24.070
  • called acromegaly orsomething like this.
  • 00:45:24.103 --> 00:45:28.908
  • It's this thing that happenswhen a tumor begins to grow on
  • 00:45:28.941 --> 00:45:33.012
  • one of your glands and justcauses your body to continue to
  • 00:45:33.045 --> 00:45:36.349
  • release human growth hormone.
  • 00:45:36.382 --> 00:45:37.750
  • And though it makes you big andit makes you really strong, it
  • 00:45:37.784 --> 00:45:41.854
  • also makes in some ways yourbones can become brittle, your
  • 00:45:41.888 --> 00:45:45.191
  • organs can become weak.
  • 00:45:45.224 --> 00:45:48.060
  • People that have this giantismtend to struggle with blindness.
  • 00:45:48.094 --> 00:45:52.865
  • They can't see very well.
  • 00:45:52.899 --> 00:45:54.634
  • And most of all, they'reconstantly in pain.
  • 00:45:54.667 --> 00:45:57.970
  • One of the sad things aboutAndre the Giant is every--
  • 00:45:58.004 --> 00:46:00.807
  • he was an alcoholic,and it took a lot of alcohol
  • 00:46:00.840 --> 00:46:03.509
  • to get him drunk,
  • 00:46:03.543 --> 00:46:05.044
  • and the reason he was gettingdrunk was to help treat
  • 00:46:05.077 --> 00:46:08.447
  • the daily pain that he wassuffering, not from wrestling,
  • 00:46:08.481 --> 00:46:11.684
  • but just because of thisdisorder that he had.
  • 00:46:11.717 --> 00:46:14.654
  • There was a story that wheneverhe would go to a bar, he would
  • 00:46:14.687 --> 00:46:16.856
  • have them bring a trash can,fill it with ice, and fill the
  • 00:46:16.889 --> 00:46:20.560
  • whole thing with beers.
  • 00:46:20.593 --> 00:46:21.928
  • And by the end of the thing, hewould have finished the beers.
  • 00:46:21.961 --> 00:46:23.896
  • It took all of that to get a manthat size drunk.
  • 00:46:23.930 --> 00:46:26.732
  • And then he would have somerelief from his pain.
  • 00:46:26.766 --> 00:46:30.770
  • Historians believe that Goliathwas like Andre the Giant,
  • 00:46:30.803 --> 00:46:34.841
  • that he probably hadthe same disorder.
  • 00:46:34.874 --> 00:46:36.542
  • He was 9 feet tall, and that allthough on the outside he was
  • 00:46:36.576 --> 00:46:41.047
  • strong, there was probablysomething else about him that
  • 00:46:41.080 --> 00:46:44.183
  • made him very weak.
  • 00:46:44.217 --> 00:46:45.685
  • He has to get close to David,the Bible says, in order to
  • 00:46:45.718 --> 00:46:48.254
  • see him.
  • 00:46:48.287 --> 00:46:49.589
  • Is he partially blind?Is he brittle?
  • 00:46:49.622 --> 00:46:52.291
  • Is he struggling with pain?Everybody thinks he's amazing.
  • 00:46:52.325 --> 00:46:54.994
  • He's this champion, obviously.
  • 00:46:55.027 --> 00:46:56.362
  • He's expecting of fight that'sgonna be like two heavy infantry
  • 00:46:56.395 --> 00:47:00.867
  • men going back and forth, butthat's not at all what he's
  • 00:47:00.900 --> 00:47:04.971
  • about to get.
  • 00:47:05.004 --> 00:47:06.339
  • Instead, after 40 days, he'sbeen mocking Israel, you know,
  • 00:47:06.372 --> 00:47:10.543
  • mocking 'em, and then finally onthat 40th day, David arrives.
  • 00:47:10.576 --> 00:47:14.480
  • Don't think for a minute, by theway, that David is a boy.
  • 00:47:14.513 --> 00:47:17.783
  • He's called a young man,but his dad Jesse,
  • 00:47:17.817 --> 00:47:20.620
  • the Bible says, is very old.
  • 00:47:20.653 --> 00:47:23.022
  • David is probably college age,early 20s.
  • 00:47:23.055 --> 00:47:26.692
  • So he's a young guy and he's ashepherd, which is considered
  • 00:47:26.726 --> 00:47:30.463
  • in those days the lowliestof all professions.
  • 00:47:30.496 --> 00:47:35.001
  • Most shepherds in the Bible eraare actually young girls.
  • 00:47:35.034 --> 00:47:39.071
  • They're teenage girls.
  • 00:47:39.105 --> 00:47:40.406
  • It's almost always given to,like, 11 or 12 year old boys
  • 00:47:40.439 --> 00:47:43.576
  • or like 15-16 year old girls.
  • 00:47:43.609 --> 00:47:46.245
  • So, actually in the Christmasstory, the shepherds that the
  • 00:47:46.279 --> 00:47:49.548
  • angels come toare probably women.
  • 00:47:49.582 --> 00:47:53.619
  • Sorry for that little thing.
  • 00:47:53.653 --> 00:47:54.954
  • You know, you always seethe old man with a beard.
  • 00:47:54.987 --> 00:47:56.722
  • It's not historically accurate.
  • 00:47:56.756 --> 00:47:58.557
  • Anyway, so David is thiscollege-age guy,
  • 00:47:58.591 --> 00:48:03.896
  • but he's doing thislowly profession
  • 00:48:03.930 --> 00:48:06.132
  • of caring for the sheep, why?
  • 00:48:06.165 --> 00:48:08.434
  • 'Cause he's the youngest.
  • 00:48:08.467 --> 00:48:11.003
  • And he overhears that finallySaul in anger says, "If anyone
  • 00:48:11.037 --> 00:48:16.108
  • could kill that giant, hisfamily won't have to pay taxes
  • 00:48:16.142 --> 00:48:19.779
  • anymore and my daughterwill marry him."
  • 00:48:19.812 --> 00:48:24.116
  • And David goes, "Whaaa?"
  • 00:48:24.150 --> 00:48:28.220
  • He says, "Excuse me?What giant?"
  • 00:48:28.254 --> 00:48:30.923
  • And he goes out, he's like,"What giant are you
  • 00:48:30.957 --> 00:48:32.291
  • talking about?"
  • 00:48:32.325 --> 00:48:33.626
  • He runs out and he sees thisgiant cursing God, cursing the
  • 00:48:33.659 --> 00:48:35.995
  • Israelites, and he looks at Sauland he goes, "I'm gonna go fight
  • 00:48:36.028 --> 00:48:39.198
  • that guy right now."
  • 00:48:39.231 --> 00:48:41.000
  • And he looks at everybody andhe's like, "Why is nobody
  • 00:48:41.033 --> 00:48:42.702
  • fighting this guy?
  • 00:48:42.735 --> 00:48:44.070
  • Take this guy down.
  • 00:48:44.103 --> 00:48:45.504
  • What is going on here?"
  • 00:48:45.538 --> 00:48:46.872
  • And Saul says, "Youcan't fight this guy."
  • 00:48:46.906 --> 00:48:49.241
  • And David looks at him, he says,"I have killed a lion.
  • 00:48:49.275 --> 00:48:52.979
  • I have killed a bear."
  • 00:48:53.012 --> 00:48:54.847
  • Now, think of about this.
  • 00:48:54.880 --> 00:48:56.182
  • A bear?
  • 00:48:56.215 --> 00:48:57.550
  • We live in the bear state.
  • 00:48:57.583 --> 00:48:58.884
  • A giant sounds tough, but Ithink I would rather fight a
  • 00:48:58.918 --> 00:49:01.687
  • giant than a bear and a lion.
  • 00:49:01.721 --> 00:49:05.591
  • And when David says this, hisbrothers are all around him.
  • 00:49:05.624 --> 00:49:08.327
  • You imagine that Saul kindalooks at his brothers and
  • 00:49:08.361 --> 00:49:10.262
  • they're like, "Yeah, Davidkilled a lion and a bear."
  • 00:49:10.296 --> 00:49:13.099
  • And he's like, "Alright,go for it."
  • 00:49:13.132 --> 00:49:15.568
  • He tries to give David his armorand his weapons,
  • 00:49:15.601 --> 00:49:18.137
  • and David's like, "No,I don't need that stuff.
  • 00:49:18.170 --> 00:49:21.374
  • All I need is fiveround stones."
  • 00:49:21.407 --> 00:49:26.178
  • Actually, all he needed was one.
  • 00:49:26.212 --> 00:49:27.546
  • We'll get to that in a minute,but he grabs five just in case.
  • 00:49:27.580 --> 00:49:30.683
  • So David is just wearing hisnormal tunic.
  • 00:49:30.716 --> 00:49:33.953
  • He's got a staff in one hand andhe's got his little slinger.
  • 00:49:33.986 --> 00:49:39.158
  • And now, it's weird because,you know, we so often think
  • 00:49:39.191 --> 00:49:43.696
  • a slinger, like,that's not a big deal.
  • 00:49:43.729 --> 00:49:45.464
  • Like, a slinger?
  • 00:49:45.498 --> 00:49:46.832
  • Historians say that slingers,which predate archery, at close
  • 00:49:46.866 --> 00:49:50.503
  • range are actually more powerfulthan archery.
  • 00:49:50.536 --> 00:49:52.805
  • The reason they get replacedwith archery is because archery
  • 00:49:52.838 --> 00:49:55.274
  • is a longer range.
  • 00:49:55.307 --> 00:49:56.742
  • But at a close range, a slingerthat is strong and a
  • 00:49:56.776 --> 00:50:00.746
  • professional within 20 yards canbe as intense as a .44 pistol.
  • 00:50:00.780 --> 00:50:05.851
  • I found this video of a southernguy who's just an amateur.
  • 00:50:05.885 --> 00:50:08.654
  • He's got a great Youtube pageshowing an example of what an
  • 00:50:08.687 --> 00:50:11.924
  • ancient slingshot looks like.
  • 00:50:11.957 --> 00:50:13.959
  • And he's breaking Coke bottlesor beer bottles or something.
  • 00:50:13.993 --> 00:50:15.995
  • Do we have that video ready?
  • 00:50:16.028 --> 00:50:17.530
  • Here, show that real quick.
  • 00:50:17.563 --> 00:50:22.601
  • Channing: Hey, everybody.
  • 00:50:22.635 --> 00:50:23.936
  • Me again, Channing,Practical Paracord, and
  • 00:50:23.969 --> 00:50:25.938
  • today is slinging tipswhile I'm slinging at targets.
  • 00:50:25.971 --> 00:50:28.941
  • Bobby Schuller: Let's show itone more time.
  • 00:50:30.409 --> 00:50:31.744
  • Watch this again.
  • 00:50:31.777 --> 00:50:33.446
  • Look at that!
  • 00:50:33.479 --> 00:50:35.414
  • Now, you need to see something.
  • 00:50:35.448 --> 00:50:36.816
  • We think, "Oh, it's a miracle.
  • 00:50:36.849 --> 00:50:38.417
  • He's like a little boy with,like, a slingshot."
  • 00:50:38.451 --> 00:50:41.487
  • No, it was a guy like that,a guy who understood
  • 00:50:41.520 --> 00:50:45.925
  • that if you get--if you'reaccurate with a sling
  • 00:50:45.958 --> 00:50:47.960
  • and you hit it at close range,it's like having a gun.
  • 00:50:47.993 --> 00:50:50.129
  • He's like, "I don't needall this armor.
  • 00:50:50.162 --> 00:50:51.797
  • I don't need a sword.
  • 00:50:51.831 --> 00:50:53.132
  • Look at this big, ugly,slow, blind giant.
  • 00:50:53.165 --> 00:50:58.270
  • I can take that guy.
  • 00:50:58.304 --> 00:51:01.774
  • I can take that guy."
  • 00:51:01.874 --> 00:51:05.144
  • And he did.
  • 00:51:05.177 --> 00:51:07.346
  • David gets out there and Goliathcomes down, lumbering down, slow
  • 00:51:07.379 --> 00:51:13.719
  • mo like a turtle.
  • 00:51:13.752 --> 00:51:15.421
  • He has a shield bearer.
  • 00:51:15.454 --> 00:51:17.189
  • That either means he can't carryhis shield probably because most
  • 00:51:17.223 --> 00:51:19.692
  • shield bearers were just forarchers.
  • 00:51:19.725 --> 00:51:21.727
  • Or he was too blind and wasafraid he would trip, and needed
  • 00:51:21.760 --> 00:51:23.963
  • the shield bearer to guide him.
  • 00:51:23.996 --> 00:51:25.764
  • And he's cursing army, and helooks at David, and he goes,
  • 00:51:25.798 --> 00:51:29.268
  • "Am I a dog that youcome at me with sticks?"
  • 00:51:29.301 --> 00:51:32.271
  • And he begins to curseDavid and curse God.
  • 00:51:32.304 --> 00:51:36.041
  • And he says, "Come here and I'llgive your flesh to the birds
  • 00:51:36.075 --> 00:51:40.045
  • and wild animals."
  • 00:51:40.079 --> 00:51:41.380
  • And David looks at this guybecause he's got heart, and it
  • 00:51:41.413 --> 00:51:45.851
  • says, "David said to thePhilistine, 'You come at me with
  • 00:51:45.885 --> 00:51:49.989
  • a sword, and spear, and javelin,but I come against you in the
  • 00:51:50.022 --> 00:51:55.728
  • name of the Lord Almighty, theGod of the armies of Israel,
  • 00:51:55.761 --> 00:51:59.832
  • whom you have defied.
  • 00:51:59.865 --> 00:52:01.333
  • This day the Lord will deliveryou into my hands,
  • 00:52:01.367 --> 00:52:05.271
  • then I will strike you downand cut off your head.
  • 00:52:05.304 --> 00:52:07.940
  • This very day I will give thecarcasses of the Philistine army
  • 00:52:07.973 --> 00:52:12.244
  • to the birds and the wildanimals, and the whole world
  • 00:52:12.278 --> 00:52:15.347
  • will know that it is not bythe sword or the spear
  • 00:52:15.381 --> 00:52:18.851
  • that the Lord saves.
  • 00:52:18.884 --> 00:52:20.553
  • For the battle is the Lord andhe will give all of you into
  • 00:52:20.586 --> 00:52:24.223
  • our hands.'"
  • 00:52:24.256 --> 00:52:25.591
  • And at those words, David takesthe thing, runs at Goliath,
  • 00:52:25.624 --> 00:52:30.329
  • wham, throws this thinglike a .44 pistol,
  • 00:52:30.362 --> 00:52:34.099
  • hits Goliath rightbetween the eyes.
  • 00:52:34.133 --> 00:52:37.203
  • Like a tree falling down,boom, he falls.
  • 00:52:37.236 --> 00:52:40.573
  • David climbs on top of him,takes his sword, cuts his head
  • 00:52:40.606 --> 00:52:44.843
  • off, rips it off, and shows thatbloody head to the army, and
  • 00:52:44.877 --> 00:52:50.249
  • they flee like crazy.
  • 00:52:50.282 --> 00:52:53.786
  • That's a good story.
  • 00:52:53.819 --> 00:52:55.921
  • That's a good story.
  • 00:52:56.021 --> 00:52:58.090
  • This is not a miracle story,guys.
  • 00:52:58.123 --> 00:53:00.726
  • This is a story about howit's better to be smart
  • 00:53:00.759 --> 00:53:03.996
  • than to be big.
  • 00:53:04.029 --> 00:53:05.831
  • This is a story about howit's better to be trained
  • 00:53:05.864 --> 00:53:08.867
  • than to be giant.
  • 00:53:08.901 --> 00:53:10.669
  • Everybody on that battlefieldbelieved the same thing, that no
  • 00:53:10.703 --> 00:53:14.506
  • one could beat Goliath, butDavid saw something different.
  • 00:53:14.540 --> 00:53:18.644
  • He knew that spears, and heavyweights, and all of the stuff
  • 00:53:18.677 --> 00:53:23.549
  • made you slow, it made youlumbering.
  • 00:53:23.582 --> 00:53:25.851
  • And furthermore, he just knewthat God had called him to do
  • 00:53:25.884 --> 00:53:30.022
  • this in this moment.
  • 00:53:30.055 --> 00:53:31.590
  • Perhaps when David was fightingthat lion and when David was
  • 00:53:31.624 --> 00:53:35.794
  • fighting that bear, he wasasking God, "Why am I going
  • 00:53:35.828 --> 00:53:38.998
  • through this?"
  • 00:53:39.031 --> 00:53:40.332
  • He had no idea that God waspreparing him to understand
  • 00:53:40.366 --> 00:53:44.503
  • something, that a slingshot cankill a giant.
  • 00:53:44.536 --> 00:53:47.940
  • No one else on that fieldbelieved that or knew it was
  • 00:53:47.973 --> 00:53:51.210
  • possible, but David did.
  • 00:53:51.243 --> 00:53:53.712
  • Maybe what you're going throughright now, you're like, "Why am
  • 00:53:53.746 --> 00:53:56.915
  • I going through this?
  • 00:53:56.949 --> 00:53:58.484
  • This has no meaning, no purpose,nothing at all."
  • 00:53:58.517 --> 00:54:02.821
  • Someday you're going to see thatwhen you slayed this lion or
  • 00:54:02.855 --> 00:54:07.092
  • slayed this bear, it was a partof God preparing you for one of
  • 00:54:07.126 --> 00:54:11.397
  • the most pivotal moments in yourlife, to slay the Goliath.
  • 00:54:11.430 --> 00:54:16.168
  • Not for you and not for a bunchof sheep, but for a bunch of
  • 00:54:16.201 --> 00:54:19.104
  • people, to help people thatneeded you when no one else
  • 00:54:19.138 --> 00:54:22.908
  • could help them.
  • 00:54:22.941 --> 00:54:25.210
  • We forget that God very oftenallows us to go through these
  • 00:54:25.244 --> 00:54:29.682
  • difficult things to create in ussomething that no one else has.
  • 00:54:29.715 --> 00:54:37.456
  • And by the way, David did slaythat lion and he did slay that
  • 00:54:37.489 --> 00:54:40.993
  • bear, and you'regonna slay it too.
  • 00:54:41.026 --> 00:54:43.696
  • I believe in you.
  • 00:54:43.729 --> 00:54:45.030
  • I think you're gonna get throughthis and I think that the Holy
  • 00:54:45.064 --> 00:54:47.599
  • Spirit of God is going to comeupon you, even now as you're
  • 00:54:47.633 --> 00:54:51.603
  • watching, and carry you throughwhatever it is you're
  • 00:54:51.637 --> 00:54:54.173
  • going through.
  • 00:54:54.206 --> 00:54:55.808
  • Maybe you're shakingyour fist at heaven.
  • 00:54:55.841 --> 00:54:57.576
  • You're saying, "Why, God?
  • 00:54:57.609 --> 00:54:58.911
  • Why have you abandoned me?"
  • 00:54:58.944 --> 00:55:00.279
  • That's okay.
  • 00:55:00.312 --> 00:55:01.613
  • Sometimes that's a good thingto do, to get mad at God.
  • 00:55:01.647 --> 00:55:03.782
  • God's not offended by yougetting mad at him.
  • 00:55:03.816 --> 00:55:06.318
  • What he's offended by is youcrawling back into bed, and
  • 00:55:06.352 --> 00:55:09.288
  • going to sleep, and walkingaway, and slinking away in fear.
  • 00:55:09.321 --> 00:55:13.025
  • Trust that God is going to usewhatever it is you're going
  • 00:55:13.058 --> 00:55:16.795
  • through to make you tougher andstronger, so that for the sake
  • 00:55:16.829 --> 00:55:20.032
  • of the gospel, for the sake ofhis kingdom, maybe for the sake
  • 00:55:20.065 --> 00:55:22.901
  • of your family, for some of youthe sake of your city or your
  • 00:55:22.935 --> 00:55:25.270
  • country, to defeat the giant noone else will stand up against.
  • 00:55:25.304 --> 00:55:29.708
  • I'm so proud of you.
  • 00:55:29.742 --> 00:55:31.076
  • And I want you to know just ingeneral that the world sees the
  • 00:55:31.110 --> 00:55:35.614
  • outside, but the Lordsees the heart.
  • 00:55:35.647 --> 00:55:38.884
  • God is proud of you.
  • 00:55:38.917 --> 00:55:40.652
  • God is for youand not against you.
  • 00:55:40.686 --> 00:55:42.788
  • God is with you.
  • 00:55:42.821 --> 00:55:44.156
  • He's heard your prayer.
  • 00:55:44.189 --> 00:55:45.491
  • He's not abandoned you.
  • 00:55:45.524 --> 00:55:46.859
  • He's gonna carry you through.
  • 00:55:46.892 --> 00:55:48.227
  • And every battle he carries youthrough, you're going to
  • 00:55:48.260 --> 00:55:50.763
  • get tougher.
  • 00:55:50.796 --> 00:55:52.097
  • Maybe not on the outside, but inhere and in here.
  • 00:55:52.131 --> 00:55:54.266
  • Let it be so.
  • 00:55:54.299 --> 00:55:56.235
  • You have what you need toovercome whatever it is that's
  • 00:55:56.268 --> 00:55:58.437
  • standing before you.
  • 00:55:58.470 --> 00:56:00.139
  • And if you don't, ask the Lordand he'll give you what
  • 00:56:00.172 --> 00:56:02.574
  • you need.
  • 00:56:02.608 --> 00:56:03.942
  • Sometimes it's a friend,sometimes it's knowledge,
  • 00:56:03.976 --> 00:56:05.811
  • sometimes it's a little bit ofluck, but whatever it is, he's
  • 00:56:05.844 --> 00:56:08.781
  • gonna come, and he's gonna helpyou, and he's gonna carry
  • 00:56:08.814 --> 00:56:11.383
  • you through.
  • 00:56:11.417 --> 00:56:12.718
