Rock Church – Nick Vujicic – God’s Plan For You


HOW ARE YOU DOING, CHURCH
FAMILY, I MISS YOU SO MUCH, I HOPE YOU’RE PRAYING FOR ME. I’M PRAYING FOR YOU. I JUST WANT TO TAKE A MINUTE TO
GIVE AN INTRODUCTION TO A MAN THAT NEEDS NO INTRODUCTION. WE ALL KNOW NICK VERY WELL. WE ALL LOVE HIM. HE JUST HAD A BABY, SO HE’S
GROWING A FAMILY. NICK TRAVELS THE WORLD, DOES
EVANGELISM ON AN INCREDIBLE MAGNITUDE. HE HAS A BOOK CALLED
“UNSTOPPABLE.” I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU THAT
THIS IS A GUY LIKE NO OTHER GUY I KNOW WHO HAS TAKEN A BAD
SITUATION, AN UNFORTUNATE SITUATION, WHAT MOST PEOPLE
WOULD SAY IS A HANDICAP, AND TURN IT INTO AN ASSET. GOD CAN TURN SOMETHING AMAZING
WHAT THE DEVIL MEANT FOR EVIL GOD TURNED INTO SOMETHING VERY
POWERFUL. I WANT YOU TO GIVE A WARM
INCREDIBLE OVER THE TOP AMAZING MARVELOUS WELCOME TO NICK V. THANK YOU. YEAH, YOU MAY BE SEATED. WELL, GOOD MORNING. MAN, I LOVE COMING BACK TO THE
ROCK CHURCH. I WANT TO THANK SO MUCH PASTOR
MILES FOR HAVING ME BACK, AND THE PASTORAL TEAM HERE, I WILL
NEVER FORGET THE LAST FULL SERMON SUNDAY NIGHT. DO YOU REMEMBER NINE GANG
MEMBERS COMING FORWARD AND LAYING THEIR LIVES DOWN AND
THEIR KNIVES DOWN FOR THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. I’LL NEVER FORGET THAT NIGHT. ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS FOR ME. AND WE HAVEN’T SLOWED DOWN AS A
MINISTRY. WE’RE GETTING MORE CLOSER TO
GOD’S HEART IN HOW HE WANTS TO STRATEGIZE OUR MOVEMENTS ACROSS
THE WORLD AS WE ARE TRULY LIVING IN A VERY SPIRITUALLY
SIGNIFICANT TIME IN THE WORLD. NOT ONLY ARE WE LIVING IN A
SPIRITUALLY SIGNIFICANT TIME IN THE WORLD, BUT WE HAVE SEEN OVER
AND OVER AGAIN DOORS OPEN UP FOR OUR MINISTRY “LIFE OUT LIMBS”
AROUND THE WORLD. I WANT TO TALK A BIT ABOUT THAT
BECAUSE WE ARE VERY EXCITED. BEFORE I MOVE FORWARD, THOUGH,
ABOUT THE PLANS THAT WE IMPLEMENTED THIS YEAR, IN
PLANNING 2013 THE GREATEST JOY I CAN SHARE WITH YOU MY WIFE AND I
GOT MARRIED ON THE 12TH OF FEBRUARY 2012. [APPLAUSE] ON THE 13TH OF FEBRUARY 2013 WE WERE GIVEN BY GOD OUR BABY BOY,
KEOSHI JAMES VUJICIC. THAT’S HIM RIGHT THERE. SO, SO THANKFUL, AND THEY ARE
JUST THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE IN MY LIFE. MY WIFE IS THE MOST AMAZING
WOMAN OF GOD THAT I’VE EVER MET, AND WILL BE UNTIL I GET TO
HEAVEN, AND ADORING HER, SERVING HER AS HER HUSBAND IS JUST
SECOND TO MY PRIORITY OF LOVING GOD AS MY FATHER, SECOND, LOVING
MY FAMILY. THIRDLY, IMPLEMENTING WHATEVER
GOD’S CALLING IS ON MY LIFE, AMEN? SO A FAMILY TAKES PRIORITY, AND
I’M JUST SO THRILLED TO HEAR THAT PASTOR MILES IS ON A LITTLE
BIT OF AN SABBATICAL, SO GIVE HIM A HUG FOR ME WHEN YOU SEE
IT. AND NORTH CAMPUS, THANK YOU
EVERY FOR WATCHING MY LINE. IN 2012 MY WIFE AND I, WE WERE
SO EXCITED, COOL, NOW WE CAN TRAVEL THE WORLD AND PREACH THE
GOSPEL TOGETHER, AND ONE OF THE BIG THINGS THAT REALLY DREW MY
HEART INTO HER AMONGST SO MANY OTHER THINGS, OUR LOVE STORY IS
IN THE BOOK “UNSTOPPABLE.” CHECK OUT THE RESOURCES OUT
THERE, HOW WE MET WAS REALLY COOL AT A SMALL SPEAKING
ENGAGEMENT. IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT. I COULDN’T FEEL MY LEGS WHEN I
SAW HER, PALMS SWEATY, THE WHOLE DEAL. IT’S THIS REALLY COOL STORY. WE WERE LOOKING IN 2013, AND WE,
FUNDING THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE UNIQUE OPPORTUNITIES THAT GOD
HAS GIVEN THE MINISTRY WHERE I CAN GO INTO PLACES LIKE CHINA,
AND BE INVITED BY THE GOVERNMENT, SPEAK TO 40,000
PEOPLE IN UNIVERSITY CAMPUSES WHERE SADLY COLLEGE STUDENTS
WERE JUMPING OFF BUILDINGS BECAUSE THEY WERE AFRAID THERE
WOULD BE NO JOBS AT THE END OF THEIR STUDIES. TOP 1% OF STUDENTS WERE
COMMITTING SUICIDE. WE WENT THERE, AND BY THE GRACE
OF GOD THE CAMPUSES WE WERE ABLE TO SHARE IN, 80% OF THOSE
SUICIDE RATES DROPPED STRAIGHT AWAY, AND THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT
ASKED ME TO GO BACK. THEY PUT ME ON TV TO 40 MILLION
HOUSEHOLDS LATER, AND WE ARE JUST SO THANKFUL FOR THAT
OPPORTUNITY. WITH THAT TRACT RECORD DOORS
HAVE OPENING UP ALL ACROSS THE WORLD INCLUDING PLACES LIKE
VIETNAM. US UNDERSTANDING THE UNIQUE
CALLING WHERE GOD HAS CALLED LIFE OUT LIMBS MINISTRY TO
PREACH TO 7 BILLION PEOPLE. MY GOD IS BIG, AND HE ALWAYS
PAYS FOR WHAT HE ORDERS. HE HAS ASKED AND CALLED ME AND
MY WIFE TO TOGETHER PREACH TO 7 BILLION PEOPLE AROUND THE
WORLD. I JUST WANT YOU TO BE ENCOURAGED
AND UNDERSTANDING IF YOU, FIRST OF ALL, DO NOT FEEL THAT YOUR
EVANGELICALLY IMMERSED AND ENGAGED WITHIN YOUR CHURCH
COMMUNITY SAN DIEGO, TO GET ENGAGED. WE’RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THAT. PUT YOUR HAND UP IF YOU’RE IN
MINISTRY THROUGH THIS CHURCH PARTICULARLY, ACTIVELY? AWESOME. PUT YOUR HAND UP IF YOU CAN SAY
IN EACH OF YOUR MINISTRIES THAT IT WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE MORE
PEOPLE HELPING YOU TO DO WHAT GOD IS WANTING YOU TO DO. AWESOME. THE REST OF YOU, I’M GOING TO
TALK TO YOU ABOUT THAT AS WELL. IT IS JUST AWESOME TO SEE GOD
IMPLEMENTING THE CALLING AND PURPOSE HE HAS SPECIFICALLY FOR
YOU. WE’RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THAT. ME AND MY WIFE, WE THOUGHT,
WELL, OKAY, LET’S DO 27 COUNTRIES. AND WE PRAYED ABOUT IT, AND WE
LAID IT DOWN BEFORE THE LORD, AND WE SAID, OKAY, WE WERE
PLANNING THAT IN THE FIRST QUARTER OF THIS YEAR WE WOULD DO
ABOUT NINE OR TEN COUNTRIES, AND THEN SORT OF OVER HERE IN
AMERICA WE’LL DO SOMETHING LIKE ANOTHER 13 COUNTRIES PLUS. AND SO WE LOCKED IN THE STADIUM
IT’S. TOLD OUR COORDINATORS THAT WE’RE
DOING IT. GOD HAS CALLED US TO PREACH THE
GOSPEL TO 300 MILLION ACTUAL SOULS. WE GO INTO A NATION WE DO FOUR
THINGS. WE DO A STADIUM, A PRESS
CONFERENCE, A GOVERNMENTAL MEETING AND A HUMANITARIAN
MEETING THAT IS BROADCAST. I’M SO BLESSED THAT IN NATIONS
WHERE SYSTEMS ARE NOT WELCOME ALL THE TIME THEY PUT IT ON THE
TELEVISION. IN 30% OF THE COUNTRIES WE’RE
DOING THIS YEAR IS BROADCASTED TO 80% THE COUNTRY POPULATION. SO WE JUST CAME BACK FROM THIS
LEG, AND 140 MILLION PEOPLE INCLUDING 17 MILLION IN VIETNAM,
IN VIETNAM, NO ONE HAS EVER BEEN ABLE TO MENTION GOD, HEAVEN,
JESUS, SALVATION, ON NATIONAL TV. GOT PICKED UP BY AP ASSOCIATED
PRESS, YAHOO, CNN, AND FOX, THEIR WEBSITE AS WELL. THE HEADLINES, THIS LIMBLESS
AUSTRALIAN EVANGELIST, SOMETHING LIKE THIS. THE COOL THING IS HAVING NO
LIMBS, IF I DO SOMETHING WRONG NO ONE IS GOING TO HANDCUFF ME. I’M SPEAKING FAST. I WANT TO YOU KEEP UP WITH ME AT
THIS PACE BECAUSE I HAVE A LOT TO SHARE. I UNDERSTAND THAT MANY OF YOU
HAVE HEARD MY TESTIMONY BEFORE. PUT YOUR HAND UP IF YOU HAVE
SEEN ME SPEAK BEFORE. PUT YOUR HAND DOWN. PUT YOUR HAND UP IF YOU HAVE NOT
HEARD ME SPEAK BEFORE. PUT YOUR HAND UP IF THIS IS YOUR
FIRST TIME TO THIS CHURCH, WELCOME. DEFINITELY COME BACK. SO IN ORGANIZING ALL THESE
COUNTRIES, THEN WE FOUND OUT THAT ME AND MY WIFE, WE WERE
PLANNING ON NOT HAVING CHILDREN UNTIL LATER. WELL, GOD VETOED THAT, AND IN
SUCH AN AWESOME BLESSING HAVING KEOSHI IN OUR LIFE. WE HAD THE CHOICE TO EITHER
CANCEL THE STADIUMS, PRESS CONFERENCES, BLAH-BLAH-BLAH, OR
CONTINUE ON. MY WIFE AND I FELT THAT THIS
YEAR WOULD BE VERY DIFFICULT YEAR IF I HAD TO GO WITHOUT
THEM. WE BELIEVE THAT GOD WANTED ME TO
GO STILL. AND LEAVING AN EIGHT-WEEK-OLD
BOY WAS MY FIRST, JUST WAS HARD. I JUST HAVE AN AMAZING WOMAN OF
GOD STANDING BY ME IN MINISTRY. SHE GOT THE ARTICLE, NICK’S ON
YAHOO. SHE SAID, BABE, IF YOU WERE GONE
FOR THE WHOLE MONTH, JUST FOR THE FRUIT OF VIETNAM THAT
HAPPENED IN A WINDOW OF 48 HOURS, IT WAS WORTH IT. THIS IS INCREDIBLE. WE LIVE IN AN AWESOME TIME, SO
GO, BABY, GO, IN OTHER WORDS. SHE’S JUST AWESOME. I WANT TO OPEN THAT UP AND ASK
YOU FOR PRAYERS BECAUSE WE’RE GOING TO 9 OF 13 COUNTRIES OF
SOUTH AMERICA IN A FOUR-WEEK SPAN. EFFECTIVELY REACHING 140 MILLION
MORE PEOPLE THIS YEAR. 5% OF THE WORLD THROUGH OF OUR
MINISTRY WILL HEAR THE GOSPEL. WE’RE BLESSED. WE’RE HONORED, WE’RE ENGAGED,
AND WE UNDERSTAND THAT IT’S A HARD THING. MINISTRY IS NOT EASY. CAN I HEAR AN AMEN. YES, IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO TRY
AS MUCH AS YOU CAN TO FIND YOUR BALANCE IN WORSHIPING GOD FIRST
AS A CHILD OF GOD. HAVING THAT FAMILY AS A PRIORITY
AND THEN MINISTRY, AND NO ONE WILL EVER FIND A PERFECT
BALANCE, BUT I WANT TO URGE YOU IN UNDERSTANDING WHY WE DO THIS. IT IS ALL ABOUT LOVE, L-O-V-E. SAY LOVE. WE’RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT LOVE,
I KNOW I HAVEN’T PRESENTED ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE THE
OTHER PREVIOUS SERVICE. I WAS BLESSED, AND I’M SURE YOU
WILL BE AS WELL. TURN TO MATTHEW 7. WE’RE GOING TO READ FROM THREE
PASSAGES, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVEN’T HEARD ME SPEAK BEFORE. I’M GOING TO QUICKLY COVER MY
TESTIMONY IN A FAST NUTSHELL FOR THOSE WHO DON’T KNOW ABOUT MY
STORY. I’M 30 YEARS OLD, BORN IN
AUSTRALIA. NO ARMS, NO LEGS, BORN THIS WAY
FOR NO MEDICAL REASON. MY BROTHER AND SISTER BORN WITH
LIMBS. MY DAD WAS A PASTOR. HAS BEEN FOR 27 YEARS. HEARD ABOUT THE WORD OF GOD,
HEARD ABOUT THE LOVE OF GOD, THERE WERE TIMES WHERE I WAS
HAPPY AS A CHILD, BUT I ENTERED DEPRESSION AS AGE 8. I WAS IN DEPRESSION FOR FIVE
YEARS FEELING THAT GOOD EITHER WASN’T REAL, DIDN’T CARE ABOUT
ME, DIDN’T LOVE ME, I WASN’T GOOD ENOUGH. I WASN’T PRAYING HARD ENOUGH,
ALL THESE LIES. WHATEVER THOUGHTS COME INTO OUR
MIND, IF IT DOESN’T LINE UP WITH GOD, IT ISN’T FROM GOD. WE KNOW THE PRINCIPALITIES ON
THE EARTH ARE TRYING TO TAKE OUR HOPE. JEREMIAH 29:11, GOD SAYS HE HAS
A PLAN, HOPE, AND A FUTURE. IF I WANT TO GIVE A GIFT, AND IF
IT’S A GIFT THAT’S WRAPPED UP FOR YOU TO ACTUALLY BENEFIT FROM
ME GIVING YOU A GIFT YOU HAVE TO RECEIVE IT. YOU HAVE TO OPEN IT. YOU HAVE TO OPEN UP THE BOX. YOU HAVE TO GET THE MANUAL OUT. THE MANUAL FOR LIFE IS THE WORD
OF GOD. THERE IS NO ONE GREATER. IF YOU HAVEN’T FOUND YOUR
PURPOSE YET AND YOU’RE STILL LOOKING, YOU KNOW THERE IS A
GREATER PERSON THAN JUST BEING A GOOD PERSON. YOU KNOW THERE MAY BE SOMETHING
BEYOND THIS LIFE, THIS 60-YEAR-OLD LIFE. YOU HAVE BEEN CREATED FOR GOD
FOR AN ETERNAL PURPOSE. IF YOU FOUND THAT PEACE AND HOPE
YET I WANT TO ENCOURAGE TO YOU SAY THAT THERE IS NO ONE BETTER
TO TELL YOU YOUR PURPOSE THAN THE ONE WHO CREATED YOU. SO STOP LOOKING AT YOUR
CIRCUMSTANCES, JUST LOOK UP. FOR ME IT WAS VERY HARD TO
BELIEVE THAT GOD COULD USE A MAN WITHOUT ARMS AND LEGS. AND THAT GOD COULD HAVE
SOMETHING BETTER THAN NOT TO GIVE ME ARMS AND LEGS. IF I WAS DYING TO CANCER, TO ME
THERE WOULD BE NOTHING BETTER THAN FOR GOD TO HEAL ME. I’VE EVEN MIRACLES. I’VE SEEN BLIND PEOPLE, DEAF
PEOPLE, AND YES, I HAVE A PAIR OF SHOES IN MY CLOSET JUST IN
CASE HE SAYS YES. BUT I DIDN’T KNOW AS A CHILD,
NOR DID MY PARENTS KNOW THAT GOD WOULD USE ME THE WAY I AM TO
SHOW THE MIRACLE THAT HAPPENS ON THE INSIDE WHICH IS MORE
IMPORTANT THAN AN OUTSIDE MIRACLE. YOU ALL HAVE ARMS AND LEGS, BUT
LOOK AT YOU. I’M KIDDING. YOU CAN HAVE EVERYTHING YOU
THINK YOU NEED, AND ALL THE THINGS THAT YOU WANT, BUT STILL
FEEL EMPTY. YOU CAN HAVE THE GREATEST LIFE
ON THIS EARTH AND HAVE THE BEST REPUTATION, THE BEST FRIENDS,
THE BEST SPOUSE, THE BEST FAMILY, THE BEST GRANDCHILDREN,
THE BEST OF EVERYTHING AND HAVE EVERYTHING, BUT IF YOU’RE 90
YEARS OLD, YOU’RE NOT–I’M NOT TAKING MY HOUSE UP THERE. I GOT A MANSION. MY DRIVEWAY IS MADE OF GOLD UP
THERE. ALL RIGHT. FORGET ABOUT BLAH-BLAH-BLAH. WHAT ELSE, I’M NOT TAKING MY
CAR. I’M PROBABLY GOING TO BE ABLE TO
FLY OR TRANSPORT MYSELF WHEREVER I WANT TO GO IN HEAVEN. I’M NOT TAKING A SINGLE THING
FROM THIS EARTH. AND THE MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE AT
THE FUNERAL, THEY DO A BEAUTIFUL SERVICE AT THE FUNERAL, THEY DID
THIS, THIS, THIS, THIS, THIS, AND THIS, THIS, THIS, THIS, AND
THIS. THE ANGEL OF THE LORD COMES OVER
THAT SOUL AND SAYS, FOOL. FOOL. WHAT KIND OF HOPE IS THERE IF WE
CAN ONLY BELIEVE IN 90 YEARS THERE IS SOMETHING MORE. IT’S NOT A COPING MECHANISM TO
BELIEVE IN HEAVEN; IT’S HOPE. IF I DON’T KNOW TODAY WHERE I’M
GOING FOR SURE WHEN I’M NOT HERE I COULD FALL DEAD ON THIS
PLATFORM RIGHT NOW. NO ONE NOTES THAT. NO ONE CAN PROMISE ME MY
TOMORROW. BUT IF I LET THE LORD THROUGH
THE BEGINNING TO THE END HOLD MY ETERNITY IN HIS HANDS. NOT JUST A GOOD PERSON WHO SAYS,
OH, I KNOW THE WAY TO HEAVEN. HE SAYS, I AM THE WAY TO HEAVEN. I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE
LIGHT. I AM HOLY. HE FACED THE DEVIL FACE TO FACE
AND WON. HE DIED ON THE CROSS FOR OUR
SINS. EACH OF US HAVE SINNED BECAUSE
OF ADAM AND EVE. THEY FELL INTO SIN. THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO BE THERE
WITH GOD FOREVER AND GOD COULD HAVE MADE US LIKE ROBOTS. WE LOVE YOU, WE LOVE YOU, BUT HE
CHOSE TO HAVE A FAMILY WHO CHOOSES TO BELIEVE WHAT HE SAYS. ADAM AND EVE, THE MOMENT THEY
DIDN’T BELIEVE WHAT GOD SAID, THAT WAS AN ACT OF DISOBEDIENCE. THEY HEARD THE LIE FROM THE
SERPENT SATAN. GOD WITH HIS FORE-KNOWLEDGE KNEW
ALL THE PEOPLE WHO WOULD BE ALIVE UP TO THIS POINT, AND ALL
THE BILLIONS OF PEOPLE WHO WILL BE ALIVE ON EARTH UNTIL ONE DAY,
ONE DAY WHERE EVERY PERSON ON THE PLANET WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO
HEAR ABOUT JESUS AND WHAT GOD SAYS, AND THEREFORE HAVE A
CHOICE TO BELIEVE IN HEAVEN WITH JESUS THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AN
LIFE OR NOT. GOD WANTED TO GIVE US ALL A
CHANCE TO SPEND ETERNITY WITH HIM. EVERYONE IS BORN INTO SIN. YOU DON’T KNOW ANYONE PERFECT ON
EARTH. THAT’S WHY YOU DON’T KNOW ANYONE
WHO IS LIVING ON EARTH FOREVER. BECAUSE THE LAW WAS SET ON THIS
PLANET IF YOU HAVE SINNED YOU WILL DIE. WE ALL HAVE SINNED, WE ALL HAVE
A CHANCE TO HEAR WHAT GOD SAYS IN THE WORD AND BELIEVE IT OR
NOT. FOR ME, NO ARMS, NO LEGS, I’M
NOT BELIEVING THAT BECAUSE THIS DOESN’T MAKE SENSE. AT 15 YEARS OLD I READ ABOUT A
MAN WHO WAS BORN BLIND, KNOWING WHY HE WAS BORN THAT WAY, JOHN
9, THE FIRST THREE VERSES, CAN YOU IMAGINE A BLIND MAN HEARING
ABOUT THIS, HEARING HIS VOICE. HE CAN’T SEE THEM. PEOPLE SAY WHY WAS HE BORN THAT
WAY? THAT WAS MY QUESTION. WHY, GOD, WHY? AGE TEN, I TRIED TO COMMIT
SUICIDE BECAUSE HE DIDN’T ANSWER ME. I HAD NO ANSWER, AND I HAD NO
HOPE. THANK GOD I’M STILL HERE. LOOK HOW MUCH I WOULD HAVE
MISSED OUT ON IF I GAVE UP. I WANT YOU TO KNOW NEVER GIVE UP
ON GOD BECAUSE HE’S NEVER GOING TO GIVE UP ON YOU. HE LOVES YOU. HE HAS A PLAN FOR YOU. NO, NO, NO, HE DOESN’T. YES, WHEN I WAS IN INDIA IN
MUMBAI I WENT TO THE BROTHELS WHERE THEY HAVE SEX SLAVES. WE WENT INTO EACH HOUSE, AND I
WENT INTO A HOUSE OF A 95-YEAR-OLD PARALYZED LADY. SHE HAD NOT WALKED FOR FOUR
YEARS. GOD DID A MIRACLE RIGHT IN FRONT
OF OUR FACES. WE’LL PUT IT ON YouTube. YOU CAN SEE HOW GOD GAVE HER
SUPERNATURAL STRENGTH NOT WALKING FOR FOUR YEARS, NOW
SHE’S JUMPING UP AND DOWN. SHE WASN’T JUST AN OLD WOMAN WHO
HAPPENED TO BE THERE. SHE WAS THE PERSON WHO STARTED
150 BROTHEL HOUSES 45 YEARS PRIOR. THE ONE RESPONSIBLE IN
DESTROYING THOUSANDS OF GIRLS’ LIVES. TALK ABOUT THE WONDERFUL GRACE
AND MERCY AND LOVE PURSUING US ALL. IF GOD LOVES HER AND GAVE HER A
MIRACLE, GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOU TO NOT BELIEVE THE LIE THAT GOD
DOESN’T LOVE YOU FOR YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS, I CAN DO
SOMETHING FOR HIM. YOU CAN’T DO ANYTHING FOR GOD. HE IS GOD. GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOU. GOD HAD A PLAN FOR ME, AND THE
WAY THAT HE SHOWED IT TO ME WAS WHEN HE SAID THIS MAN WAS BORN
BLIND SO THAT THE WORKS OF GOD CAN BE SHOWN IN THIS MAN’S LIFE. WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS IS THE
BLIND MAN COULD NOT SEE JESUS. HE HEARD HIS ANSWER. JESUS SPIT IN THE DIRT, MADE A
CLAY, AND PUT IT ON THE MAN’S EYES. WHAT IF YOU COULD SEE ME AND I
PUT MUD ON YOUR EYES. WHAT WOULD YOU DO? WHAT ARE YOU DOING? CAN YOU IMAGINE THE MORE LEVEL
OF FEAR HE WAS EXPERIENCING OR THE MORE LEVEL OF FAITH REQUIRED
TO ACTUALLY TRUST SOMEONE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN, NEVER HEARD OF
BEFORE SPITTING INTO THE DIRT, AND YOU FEEL THIS MUD BEING PUT
ON YOUR FACE. HE DIDN’T SAY, HEY, WHOA, WHOA,
WHOA, WHO ARE YOU? WHAT ARE YOU DOING? WELL, TELL ME WHAT YOU’RE GOING
TO DO, AND THEN WHAT, I CAN BE READY, THEN YOU CAN DO IT. THAT’S LIKE US. WHEN YOU HEAR GOD KNOCKING ON
THE DOOR OF YOUR HEART, AND HE SEES I HAVE A PLAN FOR YOU, I
GOT NEW LIFE FOR YOU, I CAN GIVE YOU A NEW MIND. I CAN GIVE YOU STRENGTH. HEAVEN IS THERE FOR YOU. SOMETIMES WHEN CROSSING OUR ARMS
LIKE THIS AND YOU’RE SAYING, WELL GOD, GIVE ME THE A, B,
THIS, AND X, Y, Z OF YOUR PLAN, AND THEN I WILL WHAT, TRUST YOU. THAT’S NOT FAITH. THE BLIND MAN HAS FAITH, AND HE
ALLOWED JESUS TO DO WHATEVER HE WILL. AND HIS PERFECT PLAN WAS DONE
BECAUSE THE BLIND MAN ALLOWED GOD TO DO HIS PERFECT WILL. AT 15 I SAID, GOD, YOU DON’T
HAVE TO TELL ME HOW YOU’RE GOING TO USE ME. I PRAY FOR ARMS AND LEGS, BUT
SET ME FREE FROM THE BIGGEST DISABILITIES OF ALL. DEATH AND SIN. FREE ME FROM THOSE BIG PROBLEMS,
MUCH BIGGER THAN HAVING NO ARMS AND NO LEGS. I WANT TO LIVE FOR
YOUR PURPOSE, YOUR PLAN, NOT MY PLAN. DO ME ONE FLAVOR, LORD, I ASK,
IF YOU DON’T GIVE ME ARMS AND LEGS, USE ME. TO THIS DAY WE KNOW OVER A HALF
MILLION SOULS SAYING YES TO JESUS THROUGH THE MINISTRY OF
LIFE OUT LIMBS OVER THE LAST TEN YEARS. [APPLAUSE] SO YOU CAN HAVE EVERYTHING, BUT NOW THAT I’M FOUNDED IN THE
TRUTH I’M NOT HOPING THAT MY HOPE WORKS. YOU GET THAT? I’M NOT HOPING THAT MY HOPE
WORKS. I KNOW THAT I’M GOING TO HEAVEN
BECAUSE JESUS CHRIST ROSE HIMSELF FROM THE DEAD, AND HE
SAYS THAT HE’S GOING TO RAISE ME. NOW THE GREATEST TWO
COMMANDMENTS OF BECOMING A BELIEVER, AND I NOW WANT TO MOVE
FORWARD WITH WHAT I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU IS THIS. LOVE THE LORD GOD WITH ALL YOUR
HEART, ALL YOUR SOUL, AND, OH, OH, OH DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE
ORDER. LOVE THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR
HEART, MIND, SOUL, STRENGTH. IT’S AUSTRALIAN VERSION, ALL
RIGHT? SO HERE IT IS, WE’RE GOING TO
LOVE GOD. WHY? BECAUSE HE SET ME FREE. AUTOMATICALLY IF SOMEONE HAS
GIVEN ME SUCH AN AMAZING GIFT THAT JESUS CHRIST DIED ON THE
CROSS FOR ME KNOWING THAT I AM A SINNER BUT I’M ASKING TO FORGIVE
ME AND RENEW ME, HE’S WITH ME, I DON’T HAVE TO TACKLE THIS ON MY
OWN. I KNOW HE’S GOING TO BE WITH ME. THERE IS NO ONE GREATER THAN MY
JESUS. BUT THE COOLEST THING IS THIS,
HE SAID, LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF. WHY? SO THAT OTHERS MAY KNOW HIM. EVERYBODY SAY LOVE. ALL RIGHT, SO LET’S READ MATTHEW
7 REAL QUICK. VERSE 24-26. ARE YOU THERE? THEREFORE WHOEVER HEARS THESE
SAYINGS OF MINE, THIS IS JESUS, AND DOES THEM, I WILL MAKE HIM
OR LIKE AN HIM TO A WISE MAN I’LL MAKE HIM A WISE MAN WHO
BUILT HIS HOUSE ON THE ROCK. EVERYBODY SAY ROCK. AND THE RAIN DESCENDED, THE
FLOODS CAME, AND THE WINDS BLEW AND BEAT ON THAT HOUSE. EVERYBODY SAY BEAT ON THAT
HOUSE. AND IT DID NOT FALL FOR IT WAS
FOUNDED ON THE ROCK. EVERYBODY SAY ROCK. BUT EVERYONE WHO HEARS THESE
SAYINGS OF MINE AND DOES NOT DO THEM WILL BE LIKE A FOOLISH MAN
WHO BUILT HIS HOUSE ON THE SAND. AND THE RAIN DESCENDED, THE
FLOODS CAME, THE WINDS BLEW AND BEAT ON THAT HOUSE AND FELL
GREAT WAS IT’S FALL. TO PUT THIS PERSPECTIVE IN OUR
LIFE IN DECIDING TO LIVE FOR JESUS CHRIST, WHAT WOULD YOU
RATHER HAVE? 100,000-SQUARE-FOOT MANSION WITH
NO FOUNDATION AT ALL RIGHT ON THE SAND IN FRONT OF THE OCEAN,
IT’S BEAUTIFUL. BUT IT HAS 20,000 ROOMS AND THE
CEILINGS ARE SO HIGH. AND WITH IT COMES THIS, THAT,
BLAH-BLAH-BLAH. OR WOULD YOU PREFER TO TAKE A
10-SQUARE ROOM ON THE ROCK THAT WILL NEVER EVER FAIL YOU. THE SECOND ONE. IT’S LIKE OUR LIFE. IF I JUST HAD THIS, IF I JUST
HAD THAT, THEN I WOULD BE HAPPY. NO, MY LIFE IS BUILT ON THE
LORD, MY ROCK, MY EVERYTHING, MY SAVIOR, MY MASTER. I AM A SERVANT NOT A SPEAKER. I AM A SERVANT. AND MY MINISTRY IS SPEAKING. BECAUSE I LOVE GOD, AND I LOVE
THE WORLD. WHEN I FIND HEAVEN, AND I KNOW I
DON’T HAVE TO HOPE ABOUT MY HOPE ANY MORE, THAT I HAVE HOPE, AND
I HAVE THIS, I WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW THAT THERE IS HOPE FOR
THEM, TOO. THAT HAPPENED 11 YEARS AGO IN
FRONT OF SOPHOMORE STUDENT. WITHIN THREE MINUTES A GIRL CAME
UP TO ME, HUGGED ME ON THE SHOULDER AND WHISPERED IN MY EAR
AND SAID THANK YOU. NO ONE HAS EVER TOLD ME THAT
THEY LOVED ME. NO ONE EVER TOLD ME THAT I WAS
BEAUTIFUL THE WAY THAT I AM. I WAS SHOCKED BECAUSE IF MY
PARENTS HAD NEVER TOLD ME THAT I WAS LOVED, THAT I WAS BEAUTIFUL
THE WAY I AM, I WOULD HAVE GONE THROUGH WITH MY SUICIDE. GOD MADE US WONDERFULLY AND
FEARFULLY, AND NEVER MIND THE ENEMIES WHO ARE TRYING TO BRING
YOU DOWN. STOP LOOKING LEFT AND RIGHT AND
JUST LOOK UP. THAT WAS THE LOVE OF THE WORLD
THAT GOD GAVE ME. GOD, GIVE ME YOUR EYES OF
COMPASSION. THE SAME COMPASSION YOU HAVE FOR
THEM? I WILL LAY MY LIFE DOWN IN
SERVICE TO YOU THAT OTHERS MAY KNOW HIM. SOMEONE FAMOUS, I CAN’T REMEMBER
WHO HE WAS, THAT’S HOW FAMOUS HE WAS IN MY BOOK. BUT SOMEONE FAMOUS SAID I BREACH
THE GOSPEL ALL THE TIME AND SOMETIMES I USE WORDS. THE REASON WHY ANYONE IN THIS
CHURCH IS ACTIVELY IN THAT MINISTRY OF YOURS IS BECAUSE
THEY LOVE SAN DIEGO. THEY DON’T WANT JUST SOME
WEIRDOES OF SAN DIEGO COMING TO HEAVEN. THEY WANT ALL WEIRDOES, ALL
ORPHANS, ALL DRUG-ADDICTED PEOPLE, THEY WILL DO ALL THAT
THEY CAN WITH THE 300 PLUS MINISTRIES OUT THERE. THEY WANT THAT DIVORCE COUPLE TO
COME TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. THEY WANT EVERYONE IN SAN DIEGO
TO COME TO HEAVEN, AND THEY’VE DONE THIS. GOD, THANK YOU FOR HOPE. HELP ME TO BE AN INSTRUMENT IN
YOUR HANDS THAT I CAN SHARE YOUR LOVE IN ACTION. CAUSE YOU DON’T LOVE YOUR
NEIGHBOR ENOUGH TO COME TO HEAVEN UNTIL YOU GO AND KNOCK ON
THEIR DOOR AND INVITE THEM TO YOUR HOME ONCE. OR CHURCH, CHURCH! NO, NO, NO–YES! YES. THE ROCK CHURCH IN ITS
LEADERSHIP AND UNDERSTANDING WHY THEY HAVE MULTIPLE CAMPUSES IS
UNDERSTANDING THAT IN DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES WE WANT TO SPREAD
THAT LOVE TO ALL PEOPLE. HOW ABOUT YOU? MAY GOD GIVE US THE COMPASSION
THAT IF YOU’RE NOT IN A MINISTRY YET GET GOING. SORRY. IT’S TIME! IF GOD CAN USE ME WITHOUT LIMBS,
TELL ME HOW CAN HE NOT USE YOU? ASK GOD TO CHANGE YOUR HEART. DON’T GET TOO BUSY FOR GOD. BEING UNDER SATAN’S YOKE. HOW MANY PEOPLE DO YOU KNOW HAVE
MANSIONS RIGHT ON THE SAND? THEY’RE HAPPY IN LIFE. THEY DON’T NEED ANYTHING. BUT THEY DON’T REALIZE WHAT’S
COMING. IT’S NOT GOING TO LAST. TURN WITH ME TO 1 CORINTHIANS
12. BEFORE I READ THIS I WANT TO SAY
THIS. ONE OF THE BIGGEST REQUESTS I
EVER ASKED GOD AND ASKED HIM WHY DO YOU LOVE US SO MUCH? HE DIDN’T HAVE TO MAKE THAT
MADAM AND PIMP WALK, BUT DID HE. EVEN WHEN YOU’RE RUNNING 100 MPH
IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION GOD IS PURSUING YOU. I CAN’T GET THAT OUT OF MY MIND. BUT WHEN MY WIFE WAS PREGNANT
WITH KEOSHI I SAW A LITTLE GLIMPSE OF JUST HOW MUCH HE
LOVES US. WHEN I FELT MY LITTLE BABY KICK,
AND I PUT MY FOOT ON MY WIFE’S BELLY AND FELT HIM KICK FOR THE
FIRST TIME… I HAD NOT SEEN HIM. I HAD NOT HEARD HIM. I HAD NOT TOUCHED HIM. HE CAN’T DO ANYTHING THAT COULD
MAKE ME LOVE HIM MORE, NOTHING. WHEN I FELT HIM KICK TEARS CAME
TO MY EYES AND OUT LOUD I TOLD MY WIFE, I LOVE HIM. I LOVE HIM. IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN YOU KNOW
EXACTLY WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT. IT’S A FEELING THAT YOU DON’T
KNOW UNTIL THAT HAPPENS. IT’S THE WAY THAT GOD WANTS US
TO KNOW THAT HE DOES LOVE US. AND GOD HAS A CALLING IN
MINISTRY FOR ALL OF US. NOT ONLY WOULD WE FIND
EVERYTHING WE NEED. I DON’T NEED ARMS AND LEGS. I NEED PEACE. WHERE DOES MY PEACE COME FROM? HIM. I NEED STRENGTH. WHERE DOES MY STRENGTH COME
FROM? A POSITIVE ATTITUDE. NO. IT’S THE PERSONAL ENCOUNTER WITH
GOD HIMSELF THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND GROWING, EVERYBODY
SAY GROWING. GROWING IN YOUR ACTIVE PERSONAL
RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, READING THE WORD, COMING TO CHURCH
SERVING. THAT’S WHAT TRANSFORMED ME. I DON’T NEED STUFF. I NEED HIM. BUT I NEED TO FULFILL THE
PURPOSE THAT HE HAS FOR ME. 1 CORINTHIANS 12:4. THERE ARE DIVERSITIES OF GIFTS
BUT THE SAME SPIRIT. THERE ARE DIFFERENCES OF
MINISTRIES, BUT THE SAME LORD. THERE ARE DIVERSITIES OF
ACTIVITIES BUT IS THE SAME GOD WHO WORKS ALL IN ALL. I DON’T HAVE TIME TO MOVE ON
THERE. LET’S SKIP RIGHT TO CHAPTER 13. IN CHAPTER 12 I WANT TO YOU GO
THROUGH THE DIFFERENT HEALINGS, BUT LISTEN TO WHAT APOSTLE PAUL
SAYS, THOUGH I SPEAK OF TONGUES OF MEN OR OF ANGELS, BUT HAVE
NOT LOVE, I HAVE BECOME A SOUNDING BRASS OR CLINGING
CYMBAL. ALTHOUGH I HAVE THE GIFT OF
PROPHECY–LISTEN TO THESE WORDS–HE HAS THE GIFT OF
PROPHECY. HE UNDERSTANDS ALL MYSTERIES AND
ALL KNOWLEDGE. THOUGH I HAVE ALL FAITH SO I
COULD REMOVE MOUNTAINS BUT HAVE NOT LOVE, I AM NOTHING, NOTHING,
NOTHING. N-O-T-H-I-N-G. NOTHING. LOVE IS WHAT DROVE JESUS TO THE
CROSS. GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE
GAVE HIS ONLY SON. THERE IS NO WAY THAT I DESERVE
HEAVEN BECAUSE HEAVEN IS PERFECT AND I AM NOT. AND WE HAVE ALL SINNED. JUST GIVE ME TWO OR THREE ROLLS,
ONE TOY AND YOU’LL SEE SIN. BECAUSE GOD LOVED US SO MUCH HE
GAVE US A WAY TO RECEIVE HIM. AND ALL THE BENEFITS OF KNOWING
JESUS. I DON’T HAVE A POSITIVE ATTITUDE
BECAUSE IT’S MY COPING MECHANISM. THAT IS YOUR MECHANISM IF YOU
DON’T BELIEVE IN JESUS. YOU’RE HOPING WHATEVER TEACHING
YOU’RE HOLDING ON TO WHO IS THE PERSON WHO NEVER SAID THAT THEY
WERE HOLY, PERFECT, AND COULD NOT RAISE THEMSELVES FROM THE
DEATH, THAT’S WHAT YOU’RE HOLDING ON TO. IF I’M JUST A GOOD ENOUGH
PERSON. REALLY? THAT’S INTERESTING. I REMEMBER IN GENESIS ADAM AND
EVE WERE TOLD NOT TO EAT OF THE FRUIT OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD
AND EVIL. IF I JUST KNOW WHAT IS BAD AND
GOOD. IF I’M GOOD ENOUGH I WILL GET TO
HEAVEN. THAT WAS THE DEFINITION OF THE
FIRST SIN OF ADAM AND EVE. IF I JUST THINK I’M GOOD ENOUGH. IT’S NOT ABOUT THAT. FIRST SIN. STILL HERE TODAY. NO, I AM A SINNER. I NEED YOU, LORD. I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU HAVE
FOR ME, BUT I BY FAITH IF YOU GIVE ME THAT GRACE AND MERCY
LORD, I WANT TO SEEK YOUR FACE, TRANSFORM MY HEART, TRANSFORM MY
MIND. GIVE ME THE LOVE THAT YOU HAVE
FOR THE WORLD THAT I MAY BE FAITHFUL IN WHAT I DO FOR YOU. GOD WOULD NOT HAVE SENT ME TO 48
NATIONS SPEAKING IN FRONT OF EIGHT PRESIDENTS, FIVE
CONGRESSES, TWO OF THEM ON THEIR KNEES ASKING FOR FORGIVENESS OF
THE NATION, ON TV IN COLOMBIA AND OTHER PLACES. BUT GOD WOULD NOT SEND ME TO THE
NATION UNTIL I’M FAITHFUL WITH MY ONLY LITTLE BACKYARD. GOWN IN QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA,
DOWN UNDER. IF I WASN’T AN EVANGELIST WITH
WHAT GOD GAVE ME, WITH A SMALL AMOUNT OF PEOPLE, DON’T THINK
YOU’LL EVER THINK YOU’LL DOING SOMETHING MASSIVE IN THE WORLD
UNTIL YOU SHOW GOD YOU’RE ABLE TO DO WITH WHAT YOU HAVE. OH, I JUST WISH I HAD THAT
MINISTRY, NO. THESE MINISTRIES THAT ARE
REPRESENTED BY THIS CHURCH SAVES SOULS FOR JESUS THAT I, NICK
VUJICIC, WILL EVER, EVER GET TO MEET. WE ARE ALL PART OF THE BODY OF
CHRIST. LOVE GOD BECAUSE THERE IS
NOTHING ELSE BETTER THAN KNOWING HIM AND WALKING WITH HIM AND
LETTING OTHERS SEE THAT THERE IS HOPE. THEN I CAN BE POSITIVE. YOU THINK I’M GOING TO BE
POSITIVE? I’M AMBASSADOR OF THE KING OF
KINGS, LORD OF LORDS. I HAVE ANGELS WITH ME, AND IF
GOD IS WITH ME WHO CAN BE AGAINST ME. IT’S NOT EASY WHEN YOU TAKE OVER
A TERRITORY FOR GOD’S KINGDOM BECAUSE SATAN IS NOT SITTING
WITH HIS FEET UP DRINKING HIS COGNAC AND SMOKING HIS CIGAR. HE’S SENDING ARMS AGAINST YOU,
BUT WE DON’T HAVE TO BE AFRAID BECAUSE GOD IS WITH US, AND NO
ONE IS GREATER, NO ONE HAS A GREATER NAME THAN THE LORD JESUS
CHRIST. YOU CAN HAVE THAT HOPE, AND
MAYBE YOU’VE COME HERE THIS MORNING, AND YOU CAN ADMIT THAT,
NICK, I DON’T HAVE AN ACTIVE PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE
LORD JESUS CHRIST. MAYBE YOU’RE MAKING EXCUSES WHY
YOU HAVEN’T TRUSTED HIM YET. I WANT TO KNOW WHAT GOD IS GOING
TO DO. OR I’M NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO REALLY
SEE WHAT GOD HAS. I NEED TO PRAY MORE. I NEED TO HAVE MORE FAITH–EEH. LIFE IN THE PIT OF HELL. GOD WANTS YOU. HE CAN USE YOU NOW. I THANK GOD THAT HE DIDN’T GIVE
ME HEALING IN MY BODY, BUT HE GAVE ME RESTORATION OF MY SOUL
AND HEALING OF MY SPIRIT. THAT’S WHAT HE WANTS TO DO FOR
YOU TODAY. FOR SURE, IF YOU ALLOW HIM. WHAT DO YOU THINK I WANT? A RESTORED SOUL AND SPIRIT? OR ARMS AND LEGS? THIS STUFF, I’M GOING TO DIE. BUT I’M GOING TO LIVE FOREVER. DO YOU HAVE THAT PEACE? DO YOU KNOW THE LORD JESUS? MAYBE YOU’VE COME TO CHURCH. MAYBE YOU GO TO OTHER CHURCHES
BUT YOU HAVE NOT ENGAGED WITH A PERSONAL ENCOUNTER WITH GOD
ALMIGHTY AND WALKING WITH GOD AND MAKING YOUR DECISIONS IN
YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO THE DESIRE OF HOW GOD WANTS US TO
LIVE. IT DOESN’T MEAN THAT WE’RE
PERFECT. NO ONE IS PERFECT. BUT TO TURN FROM OUR WICKED WAYS
THAT TAKE US AWAY FROM GOD AND NEARLY GIVING UP, SOME OF YOU
ARE ALIVE, AND SOME OF YOU ARE SMILING AND ALIVE. I MEAN, OF COURSE, YOU’RE ALIVE. YOU’RE BREATHING. SOME OF YOU ARE DEAD ON THE
INSIDE. GOD IS CALLING YOU. TO CHARGE YOU UP. WITH HIS HOLY SPIRIT THAT WILL
NEVER EVER RUN DRY OR DEAD, EVER. HIS LOVE FOR YOU WILL NEVER
DECREASE. HE LOVES YOU RIGHT NOW. HE HAS A PLAN FOR YOU. TURN AROUND AND SAY, YES, GOD,
COME INTO MY LIFE. TEACH ME HOW TO READ THE WORD. DEAR GOD, I KNOW THERE IS MORE
TO MY LIFE THAN 90 YEARS. TAKE AWAY MY BURDENS, TAKE AWAY
THIS PAIN. LORD GOD, IF YOU DON’T CHANGE MY
CIRCUMSTANCE I KNOW YOU’RE GOING TO USE IT, AND YOU’RE GOING TO
BE WITH ME EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. RIGHT NOW FROM THE FRONT TO THE
BACK TO THE TOP, IF YOU KNOW YOU NEED TO MAKE YOUR LIFE WITH
JESUS, YOU DO NOT HAVE A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM,
I WANT TO YOU STAND RIGHT NOW, AND I KNOW IT’S VERY BOLD TO
THINK THAT YOU’RE JUST GOING TO COME UP HERE ON THE FRONT FLOOR. EVERYONE WILL SEE YOUR FACE. I WANT TO YOU COME UP FRONT, AND
I WANT TO PRAY A PRAYER THAT BEGINS YOUR LIFE-CHANGING
JOURNEY AND TRANSFORMATION THAT GOD WANTS TO DO IN YOUR LIFE. IF YOU KNOW THAT ENOUGH IS
ENOUGH, AND YOUR BEST IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH, NOW IS TIME TO COME
UP AND CONFESS TO GOD YES, I NEED YOU, CHANGE ME. I WANT TO KNOW YOU. I WANT YOU TO BE MY HOPE AND
NOTHING ELSE. COME FORWARD RIGHT NOW. COME ON. STAND AND COME FORWARD. YOU KNOW THAT GOD HAS SPOKEN TO
YOU. I KNOW WE’RE REALLY EXCITED. COME ON DOWN. YOU KNOW GOD IS SPEAKING TO YOU,
COME ON DOWN. THAT’S IT. YOU’RE GOING TO SEE A LOT OF
PEOPLE COMING DOWN. COME ON. YOU KNOW GOD IS SPEAKING TO YOU. TODAY IS THE DAY YOU MAKE THE
LORD JESUS CHRIST YOUR HOPE, YOUR ROCK, YOUR EVERYTHING. COME ON DOWN. YOU CAN BRING A FRIEND. JUST WAIT A SECOND, WAIT A
SECOND. SHH, SHH, SHH. SORRY. IF YOU KNOW THAT YOU’RE THINKING
OF ASKING THE PERSON NEXT TO YOU. I WANT TO GO UP THERE, BUT I
DON’T WANT TO GO ALONE. I WANT TO ASK GOD TO BE MY LIFE,
WILL YOU COME WITH ME? STOP AND ASK RIGHT NOW. THEY MAY BE THINKING THE SAME
THING. KEEP THE APPLAUSE GOING. LAST CALL. IF YOU NEED TO MAKE YOUR LIFE
WITH JESUS COME DOWN TO THE FRONT RIGHT NOW. COME ON. THAT’S IT. STAND AND COME FORWARD FROM THE
TOP WE’LL WAIT FOR YOU. COME DOWN. COME ON, NEXT TEN MORE. I’M BELIEVING FOR ANOTHER 30,
COME ON, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, GIVE YOUR LIFE TO THE LORD JESUS
CHRIST. DON’T CONTINUE IN YOUR STRENGTH. AWESOME. THAT’S ANOTHER TEN. COME ON. 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, COME ON. DON’T BUILD ON THE SAND. BUILD YOUR LIFE ON THE LORD
JESUS CHRIST. HE WILL NOT DISAPPOINT YOU. HE WILL HEAL YOU. HE WILL RESTORE YOU. RUN ON DOWN. COME ON, RUN ON DOWN IF YOU’RE
COMING RIGHT NOW. WAVE TO ME IF YOU’RE COMING. HERE WE GO. RUN, RUN, RUN. IT’S NOT TOO LATE. MAKE YOUR MOVE NOW. HALLELUJAH. THERE’S ONE MORE. THERE ARE FIVE MORE. HALLELUJAH. FIVE MORE, SIX. TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION. MAKE YOUR MOVE NOW. FOUR MORE. FIVE, SIX, SEVEN–CAME FROM THE
TOP. SEVEN, EIGHT, NINE, TEN, ELEVEN. 12, 13, 14, IF YOU CAN RUN DOWN
NOW THAT WOULD BE GREAT. 15, 16, 17, KEEP COMING DOWN. AWESOME. HALLELUJAH. THAT WAS A FULL THREE AND A HALF
MINUTES OF PEOPLE WALKING DOWN. CAN WE GIVE GLORY TO GOD? [APPLAUSE] LET US PRAY AS WE ARE. LORD JESUS, WE THANK YOU THAT
YOU LOVE US. WE THANK YOU, LORD, THAT YOU ARE
SO GOOD. WE ASK GOD THAT YOU WOULD BLESS
US IN EVERY ASPECT OF OUR HEARTS’ DESIRE. I PRAY FOR PHYSICAL MIRACLES ALL
ACROSS THIS PLACE. IN THE NAME OF JESUS BE HEALED. BUT LORD, MORE THAN OUR BODIES
BEING HEALED THANK YOU, LORD, YOU CAN HEAL OUR HEARTS AND
RESTORE OUR SOUL. THANK YOU, LORD, THAT THERE IS
MORE TO LIFE THAN THIS LIFE THAT MEETS THE EYE. WE GIVE YOU THE PRAISE AND THE
GLORY. THANK YOU, LORD, FOR THE PEOPLE
WHO COME UP THE FRONT. HELP US TO LOVE YOU MORE, TEACH
US YOUR WAY. HELP US TO LOVE SAN DIEGO MORE,
AND HELP US TO SEE HOW MUCH YOU DO LOVE US DESPITE OUR FAULTS. IF YOU’RE UP AT THE FRONT WOULD
YOU SAY THIS OUT LOUD, SAY DEAR GOD, I COME TO YOU TODAY, AND I
THANK YOU FOR LOVING ME. I AM SO SORRY FOR ALL THE THINGS
I’VE DONE WRONG. PLEASE FORGIVE ME, THANK YOU,
JESUS, FOR DYING ON THE CROSS AS A PAYMENT OF MY SIN. THANK YOU FOR HEAVEN, HEAL ME,
RESTORE ME, COMFORT ME, AND GIVE ME STRENGTH ONE DAY AT A TIME. I ASK FOR FAITH, AND FILL ME
WITH YOUR HOLY SPIRIT. GUIDE ME AND LEAD ME AND NO
MATTER WHAT HAPPENS HELP ME TO BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE ALWAYS WITH
ME, AND THAT YOU WILL NEVER LEAVE ME. I WANT TO KNOW YOU MORE EVERY
DAY IN JESUS’ NAME I PRAY AMEN. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT
DECISION YOU’LL EVER MAKE IN YOUR LIFE. WE WANT TO PRAY WITH YOU, GIVE A
BIBLE IF YOU DON’T HAVE ONE, AND GET YOU STARTED ON THE NEXT
STEP. THIS IS NOT THE FINISH LINE BUT
THE STARTING LINE IN A NEW LIFE WITH JESUS CHRIST. WE WANT TO GET YOU MOVING
FORWARD IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. WE’LL GIVE A BIBLE AND ENCOURAGE
YOU. BEFORE YOU DO THAT, LISTEN,
DON’T GO BACK TO YOUR SEATS. THIS IS SO IMPORTANT. YOU NEED THE NEXT STEPS, I WANT
TO INVITE–BEFORE THEY WALK OUT ANYBODY ELSE YOU’RE SITTING
THERE, YOU’RE IN YOUR SEAT, YOU KNOW YOU SAID THAT PRAYER. YOU KNOW THAT GOD HAS TOUCHED
YOUR HEART. HE HEARD THAT PRAYER. IT’S DONE. BUT IF IT’S DONE WITH A SINCERE
HEART THEN I PRAY IN JESUS’ NAME THAT YOU HAVE THE COURAGE TO
STAND UP RIGHT NOW AND JOIN THESE PEOPLE. BECAUSE WHAT THESE PEOPLE ARE
ABOUT TO RECEIVE BACKSTAGE, THE NEXT STEPS YOU CAN’T LEAVE THIS
BUILDING WITHOUT. LET’S CHEER THEM AS THEY GO OUT. LET’S ALL STAY AND CELEBRATE
WITH THEM. YOUR CAR IS GOING TO BE THERE. TRAFFIC IS STILL GOING TO BE
THERE. LET’S CELEBRATE AS THEY START
THIS NEW RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST.
