JUSTIN BIEBER LEADS AN

IMPROMPTU WORSHIP SERVICE.

*

Andrew: AND THOUSANDS

OF BELIEBERS SING ALONG.

THAT STORY AND MORE ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

GOOD MORNING, WELCOME TO

THIS SHOW.

YOU SAW IT JUST THERE,

JUSTIN BIEBER MADE NEWS

EARLIER THIS WEEK WHEN HE

GRABBED HIS GUITAR AND LED

TENS OF THOUSANDS IN A

WORSHIP SONG AT HIS

CONCERT IN PARIS.

Terry: WHETHER OR NOT

YOU'RE A BIEBER FAN OR

NOT, WHEN YOU SEE THE WAY

THE CROWD RESPONDED,

YOU'LL HAVE TO ADMIT THIS

WAS A SPECIAL MOMENT.

AND LET YOU IN *

Andrew: IT IS REALLY

INTERESTING TO SEE, TERRY.

I WONDERED HOW MANY PEOPLE

IN THE CROWD ACTUALLY KNEW

WHAT HE WAS SAYING.

Terry: I DON'T KNOW.

IT SEEMED LIKE YOU COULD

HEAR.

IT TAKES QUITE A LOT TO

HEAR THE LYRIC LIKE THAT.

I THOUGHT TO MYSELF AS YOU

SAW IT, AND YOU LOOK OUT

ON JUST THAT MASS OF

LIGHTS AND PEOPLE

GATHERED, WHAT A POWERFUL

IMPACT SOMEONE LIKE JUSTIN

BIEBER CAN HAVE.

WE WANT TO THANK

"FAITHWIRE" FOR THAT

STORY.

ONE OF BIEBER'S CLOSEST

FRIENDS IS THE PASTOR OF

HILLSONG CHURCH IN NEW

YORK CITY.

AND HE HAS ALSO BEEN IN

THE NEWS LATELY.

AFTER THE PROTESTS IN

CHARLOTTE, HE POSTED THIS

STATEMENT ON Facebook:

"AS THIS CHURCH, WE'RE NOT

SAYING ALL LIVES MATTER

RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE THIS IS

A LOGICAL ASSUMPTION THAT

MOST REASONABLE PEOPLE

AGREE WITH.

ALL LIVES ARE NOT AT RISK

RIGHT NOW.

WE ARE SAYING BLACK LIVES

MATTER BECAUSE RIGHT NOW

BLACK LIVES APPARENTLY ARE

WORTH LESS ON OUR STREETS.

IT IS OUR FIGHT, NOT THEIR

FIGHT."

Andrew: HE USED TO BE

DONE HERE, NEAR US IN

VIRGINIA BEACH, AND HE HAS

GONE TO THE BIG APPLE.

AND WE'LL HAVE A LITTLE

MORE ABOUT THE CROWDS

GATHERING THERE.

HE HAS IMPACTED THE CITY.

LAST SUNDAY PASTOR CARL

POSTED THIS PICK.

AND HE SAYS PEOPLE ARE

WAITING TWO HOURS TO GET A

SEAT IN A LINE THAT WRAPS

AROUND THE BLOCK.

AND THAT'S A GREAT PROBLEM

FOR A CHURCH TO HAVE.

Terry: EVERY CHURCH

WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THAT

PROBLEM, WOULDN'T THEY?

AND THAT'S NOT ALL.

THE POPULAR PASTOR HAS

CAUGHT THE ATTENTION OF

OPRAH WINFREY.

SHE HAS TAPED AN INTERVIEW

WITH CARL FOR HER SHOW,

"SUPER SOUL SUNDAY," AND

YOU MIGHT WANT TO CATCH

THAT.

Andrew: CARL LENZ AND

JUSTIN BIEBER HAVE BEEN

CRITICIZED BY THE

CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY

BECAUSE THEY DRESS

DIFFERENTLY, AND BIEBER IS

VERY SECULAR, AND THEN WE

SEE HE SINGS CHRISTIAN

MUSIC, AND MAYBE LIKE IN

THE CASE OF JUSTIN BIEBER,

THIS IS A VERY YOUNG MAN.

HE HAD FAME VERY YOUNG IN

HIS LIFE.

WE ALL GO THROUGH SEASONS

OF DOUBTS AND THEN MAYBE

WE PICK UP THE PACE IN

FOLLOWING CHRIST.

HE LIVES A VERY PUBLIC

LIFE, AND I THINK WE

SHOULD EXTEND A LITTLE

GRACE.

Terry: AND I'M GLAD

THERE IS SOMEONE LIKE A

CARCARL PENCE IN HIS LIFE,

BIEBEFRIENDLY HIM.

Andrew: IN OTHER

NEWS, TENS OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE TOOK TO THE STREETS

IN MEXICO TO PROTEST GAY

MARRIAGE LEGALIZATION.

IT WAS ONE OF THE LARGEST

PROTESTS IN MEXICO IN

RECENT YEARS.

Terry: POPE FRANCIS

POSTED SUPPORT FOR THOSE

PROTESTORS.

HE SAID, "I'M VERY HAPPY

TO ASSOCIATE MYSELF WITH

THE BISHOPS OF MEXICO, IN

FAVOR OF THE FAMILY AND

FAMILY LIFE."

AND HE IS RIGHT ABOUT

THAT.

THIS IS A SUBJECT THAT I

THINK IS IMPACTING THE

WORLD.

MAYBE THE STRUGGLE IS MORE

OVERT HERE IN THE UNITED

STATES THAN ANYWHERE.

Andrew: I THINK HIS

PRESENCE SURPRISED A FEW

PEOPLE.

BECAUSE LAST YEAR HE WAS

ACCUSED OF BEING A LITTLE

TOO SOFT OR RELAXING A

LITTLE TOO MUCH ON SOME OF

THE ISSUES.

AND HE DOESN'T OFTEN IN

FUSE HIMSELF INTO A DEBATE

LIKE THIS, BUT IT HAS BEEN

NOTED AND THERE WERE AN

AWFUL LOT OF PEOPLE

MARCHING THERE.

Terry: THE

CORNERSTONE OF OUR SOCIETY

HAS ALWAYS BEEN

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE.

SO YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THE

CONCERN OF A LEADER LIKE

THAT, FOR HIS PEOPLE.

AFTER A MARCH LIKE THIS,

SOME IN THE GAY COMMUNITY

MIGHT FEEL REJECTED BY THE

CHURCH.

SO HOW SHOULD CHRISTIANS

RESPOND TO HOMOSEXUALS?

LANDON SHOTT SAYS THAT

QUESTION CAN BE ANSWERED

WITH ONE WORD: LOVE.

I'M LANDON SHOTT,

AUTHOR OF THE BOOK "GAY

AWARENESS."

I GET ASKED ALL OF THE

TIME, HOW SHOULD A

CHRISTIAN RESPOND TO

HOMOSEXUALS, OR

TRANSGENDERS.

THE TRUTH IS YOU RESPOND

LIKE ANYONE ELSE.

WE LOVE PEOPLE.

WE SHOULD LOVE THEM LIKE

JESUS TEACHES US TO LOVE

EVERYONE.

THE QUESTION IS NOT ABOUT

LOVE.

IT IS ABOUT OUR DEFINITION

OF LOVE.

SEE, WE USE LOVE FOR

EVERYTHING.

WE USE LOVE FOR OUR

FAVORITE FOOD, OUR

FAVORITE RESTAURANT, OUR

FAVORITE COLOR, OUR

FAVORITE STORE, AND THEN

WE USE THAT SAME

DEFINITION FOR GOD.

WE'RE USING THE SAME WORD

TO COMPARE FOOD TO OUR

GOD.

WE DEFINE LOVE AS A

FEELING.

BUT GOD DEFINES LOVE AS

OBBEENTS.

OBEDIENCE.

WE CALL IT THE LOVE

CHAPTER, AND IT IS GOD

DESCRIBING LOVE.

AND IT HAS NOTHING TO DO

WITH SEX.

EXCEPT WHERE IT SAYS,

"LOVE DOES NOT DELIGHT IN

EVIL."

SO IF THE BIBLE DECLARES

HOMOSEXUAL PRACTICE TO BE

PART OF EVIL, THEN IT

CAN'T BE GOD'S DEFINITION

OF LOVE.

SO IF TWO PEOPLE LOVE EACH

OTHER, WHY CAN'T THEY BE

TOGETHER?

BECAUSE IT IS NOT

GOD-DEFINING LOVE.

AND IF WE LOVE PEOPLE,

WE'RE GOING TO SPEAK THE

TRUTH.

THE GREATEST EXAMPLE OF

LOVING SOMEONE IN SIN IS

JESUS IN JOHN 8, WHERE HE

FINDS A WOMAN CAUGHT IN

THE VERY ACT OF ADULTERY,

AND THEY WANTED TO STONE

HER, AND JESUS GOT IN

BETWEEN A WOMAN AND HER

SIN IN RELIGIOUS

ACCUSATIONS.

HE SAID TO THE RELIGIOUS

PEOPLE, YOU WITHOUT SIN

CAST THE FIRST STONE.

AND HE SAID TO THE WOMAN

CAUGHT IN ADULTERY, HE

SAID, I DON'T CONDEMN YOU,

BUT GO AND SIN NO MORE.

WE NEED TO STAND IN

BETWEEN THE RELIGIOUS

PHARISEES AND PEOPLE IN A

LIFE OF SIN AND LET THEM

KNOW, LIKE JESUS, GOD

LOVES THEM.

AND THEN TELL THEM, GO AND

LEAVE YOUR LIFE OF SIN.

MATTHEW 28, JESUS TELLS

HIS TRUE DISCIPLES, GO OUT

AND PREACH THE GOSPEL IN

ALL OF THE WORLD.

AND WHAT?

TEACH THEM TO OBEY THE

COMMANDMENTS.

WHAT DO WE DO AS

CHRISTIANS?

WE LOVE PEOPLE WITH THE

LOVE OF GOD AND THE TRUTH

OF WHAT LOVE REALLY IS.

WHEN IT COMES TO

HOMOSEXUALITY AND

CHRISTIANITY, WE MUST BE

UNRELENTING IN OUR LOVE

FOR PEOPLE, AND UNWAVERING

IN OUR LOYALTY TO GOD'S

WORD.

Andrew: TERRY, I

THINK A LOT OF TIMES FOR A

CHRIST-FOLLOWER, AND THIS

ISSUE COMES YOU,

HOMOSEXUALITY, AND

HOMOSEXUALITY IN THE

CHURCH AND ALL OF THESE

THINGS, HOW DO I LOVE

WITHOUT ENDORSING?

THAT'S A FINE LINE A LOT

OF CHRIST'S FOLLOWERS

HAVE.

Terry: DON'T YOU

THINK THAT IN THE DESIRE

TO HAVE EVERYONE VALIDATE

THE LIFESTYLE CHOICE THAT

YOU'RE MAKING, THERE HAS

BEEN PRESSURE PUT ON

PEOPLE.

WE STAND ON BLACK AND

WHITE HERE, ON TWO SIDES

OF THE FENCE.

AND IT IS MUCH BIGGER AND

IT IS MUCH DEEPER THAN

THAT.

AND SO I THINK WHAT WE

JUST HEARD IS SO TRUE.

TO LOVE IN A CARING,

REASONABLE, OUT-REACHING

AND EMBRACING FASHION, BUT

TO DECLARE THE TRUTH.

AND GOD DEFINES LOVE AS

OBEDIENCE FOR ALL OF US.

Andrew: AND IT

CERTAINLY CALLS US AS

BELIEVERS IN JESUS, WHAT

TYPE OF AMBASSADOR AM I

FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

HOW WILL I REPRESENT

CHRIST TO SOMEONE IN SIN

OR WHO IS STRUGGLING?

Terry: WHICH WE ALL

DO, REALLY.

> COMING UP, WE WANT YOU

TO MEET A REAL LIFE JERRY

MCGUIRE, WHO HAS BEEN

CALLED NFL'S NEXT

POWERHOUSE AGENT.

EUGENE LEE SHARES THE UPS

AND DOWNS OF RECRUITING

PLAYERS, NEGOTIATING

MILLION-DOLLAR CONTRACTS,

AND DOING ALL OF IT WITH

INTEGRITY.

FOOTBALL-LOVERS, YOU'LL

WANT TO HEAR THIS.

STAY WITH US.

Andrew: IF YOU'VE

SEEN THE MOVIE JER

McMONTHJERRYMCGUIRE, YOU HAVE AN IDEA

OF WHAT EUGENE LEE'S LIFE

IS LIKE.

HIS JOB CAN BE JUST AS

EXCITING AND MAYBE AS

UNPREDICTABLE AS THE GAMES

PLAYED BY HIS CLIENTS.

> IN THE CUT-THROAT

WORLD OF SPORTS

MANAGEMENT, IT IS HARD TO

FIND SOMEONE WHO ISN'T IN

IT JUST FOR THE MONEY.

MEET EUGENE LEE, HE LEFT A

JOB AT A LAW FIRM FOR THE

NFL.

HE CONDUCTS BUSINESS THE

SAME WAY HE LIVES HIS

LIFE: WITH FAITH AND

INTEGRITY.

IN HIS BOOK, "MY BROTHER'S

KEEPER," JULKEEPER,"KEEPER," EUGENE GIVES US A

LOOK AT THE BUSINESS SIDE

OF FOOTBALL, AND WHY HE

OFFERS HIS CLIENTS

SOMETHING ABOVE AND BEYOND

THE DOTTED LINE.

Andrew: UG UGE EUGENE,

WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

YOU HAVE A LITTLE BABY

COMING?

YES.

THANK YOU.

Andrew: YOU LEAVE A

NICE, COMFORTABLE JOB IN

NEW YORK AS AN ATTORNEY,

AND YOU SAY IT IS LIKE

BURNING THE SHIP, AS THE

SPANISH DID WHEN THEY

CONQUERED NEW LAND -- YOU

GAVE IT ALL UP?

WHAT MADE YOU DO IT?

THE FIRST FOUR YEARS,

THERE WAS A PERFECT STORM

SO TO SPEAK, IN TERMS OF

CULTIVATING THE EXPERIENCE

AND THE SKILL SET I NEEDED

TO EXCEL ON THEIR BEHALF.

AS I WAS DOING THE WORK, I

REALIZED I HAD AN APTITUDE

FOR IT, AND MORE

IMPORTANTLY, I LOVED IT.

WORKING WITH YOUNG MEN OF

MY ALMA MATER TO DO GREAT

THINGS.

Andrew: I WAS

IMPRESSED IN YOUR BOOK AT

HOW MUCH YOU VET PLAYERS.

YOU DO A LOT OF RESEARCH

ON POTENTIAL CLIENTS

BEFORE EVEN APPROACHING

THEM.

IS THAT COMMON IN THE

INDUSTRY?

IT IS NOT AS COMMON AS

IT SHOULD BE.

THE INDUSTRY WE'RE IN

RIGHT NOW IS YOU FRONT

YOUR TRAINING EXPENSES AND

PRE-JOB EXPENSES FOR YOUR

PLAYERS, AND THEN YOU MAKE

IT ON THE BACK END.

WHEN THEY GET DRAFTED, YOU

MAKE COMMISSIONS.

SO YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO

MISS ON INVESTING IN

PLAYERS WHO DON'T MAKE IT.

Andrew: YOU'RE IN

HOTELS A LOT, RUNNING

AROUND IN BAD WEATHER,

TRYING TO STOP EIGHT OTHER

NFL REPS IN AN AIRPORT.

THIS IS A STRESSFUL JOB

YOU HAVE?

IT REALLY IS.

IT IS IN THE TIMES OF

STRESS YOU REALLY LEAN

INTO YOUR FAITH.

THAT'S BEEN MY FOUNDATION,

AND IT HAS BEEN

STRENGTHENED IN ME IN THE

WORK THAT I DO FOR MY

CLIENTS.

Andrew: AND YOUR

PLAYERS KNOW YOUR FAITH IS

IMPORTANT FOR YOU?

YES.

WHEN WE VET PLAYERS -- IT

IS NOT LIKE IT IS A

PREREQUISITE, BUT

OFTENTIMES THAT'S THE WAY

IT PLAYS OUT.

WE FIND MEN WHO HAVE THE

LORD IN THEIR HEARTS, AND

THEY UNDERSTAND THERE IS A

GREATER MEANING TO LIFE ON

THIS EARTH.

Andrew: I WOULD THINK

YOU'RE ONE OF THE FEW

AGENTS WHO PRAYS WITH HIS

CLIENTS.

GREAT STORY, BEFORE THE

COLUMBINE, WHEN THE

DEFENSIVE BACKS WORKED

OUT, HIS FATHER SAID,

BEFORE YOU DROP MY SON

OFF, I WANT YOU TO PRAY

WITH MY SON.

WE PRAYED, AND BY THE

GRACE OF GOD, HE WAS

BLESSED TO HAVE A

PHENOMENAL WORKOUT.

IT WAS SEAN AND JAYLEN

RAMSEY.

Andrew: THAT'S A

SPECIAL PRIVILEGE, AND

THAT'S AN ACTION ON YOUR

PART THAT OTHER PLAYERS

WILL TALK ABOUT.

ABSOLUTELY.

AND I'M NOT AFRAID OF

SHARING MY FAITH.

I THINK A LOT OF TIMES MY

WORK IN THE INDUSTRY IS TO

LEAD THESE YOUNG MEN TO

CHRIST, AND TO REALLY SHOW

THEM THE WAY.

AND TO BE MY BROTHER'S

KEEPER IN THIS CUT-THROAT

INDUSTRY.

Andrew: AND THESE

PLAYERS EXPECT, AND I

THINK DEMAND, YOU GO TO

THE MAT FOR THEM IN ORDER

TO REPRESENT THEM WELL.

IS THAT EVER A CHALLENGE?

NO, IT IS NOT.

PART OF THE REASON I'M

DOING WHAT I DO IS TO SHOW

PEOPLE OFTENTIMES THERE IS

A MISNOMER THAT AS A

CHRISTIAN YOU HAVE TO BE

MEEK, YOU HAVE TO BE

MILD-MAMANNERED.

AND I RESPECT TIM TEBOW,

BECAUSE HE SHOWS YOU CAN

BE A STRONG MAN, A MAN OF

POWER AND PURPOSE.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIVE

LIVES OF TIMIDITY.

AND I FEEL LIKE I'M CALLED

TO DO THE SAME ON THE

AGENT'S SIDE.

Andrew: WERE YOU ABLE

TO NEGOTIATE WITH NFL

TEAMS AND G.M.s IN A

FAIRLY TOUGH MANNER WHILE

STILL REPRESENTING CHRIST?

ABSOLUTELY.

AND THAT'S THE BEST PART

ABOUT IT.

Andrew: YOU LOOK LIKE

YOU ENJOY IT?

I DO.

AND BOTTOM LINE, PEOPLE IN

THE CUT-THROAT INDUSTRY --

YOU LET THEM KNOW YOU CAN

HANDLE YOUR BUSINESS WITH

CHRISTIAN VALUES, AND YET

YOU CAN STILL EXCEL AND

GET THE BEST DEAL FOR YOUR

CLIENTS.

THEY ARE NOT MUTUALLY

EXISTENT.

THEY GO HAND AND HAND.

Andrew: WHAT'S THE

HARDEST PART ABOUT YOUR

JOB?

HAVING TO DELIVER

UNPLEASANT NEWS WITH

DIGNITY AND GRACE.

WE'VE HAD CLIENTS CUT BY A

COUPLE OF NFL TEAMS ON

CHRISTMAS EVE, WHERE I HAD

TO LET ONE CLIENT KNOW HE

WAS LET GO BY HIS TEAM

AFTER HE FLEW HIS MOTHER

UP FROM FLORIDA TO SPEND

THE HOLIDAYS WITH HIM.

THAT IS NOT AS EASY -- IT

DOESN'T SOUND EASY, AND IT

WAS HARDER TO DELIVER.

BUT BY THE GRACE OF GOD, I

WAS ABLE TO DO IT WITH

COMPASSION AND DIGNITY AND

GRACE.

Andrew: WHAT ABOUT

THE BAD NEWS YOU RECEIVE.

YOU'LL MAYBE RECRUIT A

PLAYER HARD AND THEY GO

WITH SOMEBODY ELSE.

HOW DO YOU HANDLE IT?

IT IS ABOUT FAITH, YOUR

TRU.

TRUST.

I CAN ONLY SEE A MILE DOWN

THE ROAD, BUT THE LORD

KNOWS AND HE CAN SEE DOWN

THE ROAD TO ETERNITY.

ALL YOU NEED IS TRUST.

AS I SAY IN THE BOOK,

WHERE YOU EXPECT HIM THE

LEAST, IS WHERE HE IS

MOST.

YOU LEAN INTO GOD DURING

THOSE TIMES.

Andrew: YOUR

STRATEGIES AFFECT PLAYERS,

TEAMS, FANS, ETC.

DO YOU EVER FEEL LIKE YOU

HAVE YOUR PRIORITIES OUT

OF WHACK A LITTLE BIT?

YOU KNOW, I DO.

EVEN LAST NIGHT, HAVING

THE PRIVILEGE OF COMING

DOWN HERE TO APPEAR ON THE

SHOW, I WAS CATCHING UP ON

WORK, AND MY MOTHER -- MY

WIFE -- EXCUSE ME -- MY

MOTHER AND MY WIFE.

Andrew: THEY CAN BE

BOTH.

MY WIFE CAUGHT ME IN

CHECK AND SAID, YOU NEED

TO PRIORITIZE, ESPECIALLY

WITH THE BABY ON THE WAY,

IT IS GOD, FAMILY, AND

YOUR CAREER.

AND THAT'S THE WAY IT

SHOULD ALWAYS BE.

AND SOMETIMES I DO FALL

OUT OF PRIORITY.

BUT THAT'S THE IMPORTANCE

OF STAYING IN THE WORD AND

STAYING IN PRAYER DAILY,

TO GET YOURSELF BACK ON

TRACK.

Andrew: THANK YOU SO

MUCH FOR BEING HERE.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING

ME.

Andrew: HIS BOOK IS

CALLED "MY BROTHER'S

KEEPER," AND ITS AVAILABLE

NATIONWIDE.

TERRY?

Terry: STILL AHEAD,

SHE IS THE AUSTRALIAN

PASTOR WHO SEES MIRACLES

HAPPEN WHEREVER SHE GOES.

AND KATHRYN SAYS ALL OF US

CAN LIVE IN THE

MIRACULOUS, TOO.

FIND OUT HOW WHEN WE

RETURN.

Terry: WE'VE HEARD

HOW JESUS HEALED BLIND

EYES AND OPENED DEAF EARS,

BUT SOME QUESTION, IS HE

STILL DOING MIRACLES

TODAY?

AFTER WITNESSING COUNTLESS

MIRACLES HERSELF,

AUSTRALIAN PASTOR KATHRYN

SAYS SHE HAS SOMETHING TO

SAY ON THAT SUBJECT.

LISTEN.

HI, I'M KATHRYN.

THE BIBLE SAYS IN HEBREWS

13: 8, THAT JESUS CHRIST

IS THE SAME, YESTERDAY,

TODAY, AND FOREVER.

AND TODAY HE IS STILL

DOING MIRACLES.

I'VE SEEN A LITTLE

6-YEAR-OLD GIRL COMPLETELY

PROFOUNDLY DEAF, GETTING

HER HEARING FOR THE VERY

FIRST TIME AS THE SPIRIT

OF JESUS TOUCHED HER.

A LADY CAME TO PRAYER WHO

HAD LEUKEMIA.

AND SHE SAID SHE FELT THE

HOLY SPIRIT JUST MOVE

THROUGH HER LIKE A

WHIRLWIND IN HER BODY.

WHEN SHE WENT BACK TO HER

DOCTOR A FEW DAYS LATER,

THEY DISCOVERED SH SHE HAD

COMPLETELY NORMAL BLOOD.

ONE LADY WE PRAYED FOR HAD

A SIX INCH TUMOR AND THE

HOLY SPIRIT TOUCHED HER

AND DELIVERED HER.

JESUS WANTED US TO KNOW

HOW GOOD THE FATHER IS,

AND THAT'S WHY HE DID SO

MANY MIRACLES AND HE IS

DOING SO TODAY.

WHEN HE SHARED THE PARABLE

OF THE PRODIGAL SON, THAT

YOUNG MAN CAME HOME AFTER

BEING BROKE, AND TO HIS

SURPRISE, THE FATHER RAN

TO HIM THE MOMENT HE COULD

SEE HIM.

WRAPPED HIS ARMS AROUND

HIM, KISSED HIM, EMBRACED

HIM, AND RESTORED

EVERYTHING TO HIM.

THIS KIND OF LOVE IS NOT

HUMAN.

IT IS SUPER NATURAL.

AND IT IS THE LOVE THAT

GOD HAS FOR US TODAY.

EVERY TIME YOU COME TO HIM

IN FAITH, THE FATHER IS

RUNNING TO YOU, TO WRAP

HIS ARMS AROUND YOU AND TO

LOVE YOU.

JESUS CAME AND HE

SACRIFICED HIS LIFE.

HE DIED AND HE ROSE AGAIN,

SO THAT IF YOU'LL COME TO

HIM WITH YOUR SIN, WITH

YOUR SHAME, AND EXCHANGE

IT IN FAITH FOR HIS MERCY

AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, YOU

CAN BE IN RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD BECAUSE THAT IS

HIS HIGHEST DESIRE, THAT

YOU WOULD KNOW HIM AND

EXPERIENCE HIS GREAT LOVE

FOR YOU.

RESPOND TO THE SAVIOR

TODAY.

HE IS WAITING FOR YOU.

Terry: IT'S KIND OF

AN AMAZING THOUGHT, ISN'T

IT?

THAT THE SAVIOR, THE

CREATOR OF ALL THAT IS,

WAITS FOR YOU AND FOR ME.

AND THEN BEYOND THAT, TO

TRY TO GRASP THE KIND OF

LOVE SHE WAS TALKING

ABOUT, THE KIND OF LOVE

THAT LOOKS AWAY FROM OUR

PAST, LOOKS AWAY FROM OUR

SIN, EVEN WHEN IT HAS BEEN

DELIBERATE AND AWFUL, AND

RECEIVES US INTO FULL

UNITY AND COMMUNION WITH

HIMSELF.

IT GIVES US A BRAND NEW

BEGINNING.

HIS HIGHEST DESIRE BEING

THAT WE WOULD KNOW HIM,

EVEN AS HE KNOWS US.

THAT HE WAITS.

AND SO TODAY I KNOW SOME

OF YOU, IF YOU'RE

LISTENING TO THAT, MAY

HAVE A HARD TIME -- I HAVE

A HARD TIME TOO,

SOMETIMES, JUST AS ABSORBING

THE MAGNITUDE OF GOD'S

LOVE.

Andrew: AND KATHRYN

REMINDED US OF THE

PRODIGAL SON.

I HAVE SIN IN MY LIFE, AND

I NEED THE REMINDER THAT

EVEN WHEN I'M COWERING AND

SAYING, WHAT WOULD GOD

WANT TO DO WITH ME, THAT

OUR HEAVENLY FATHER IS

WAITING TO EMBRACE US.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THIS

FATHER RAN.

Terry: AND HAD A

PARTY.

Andrew: MUCH TO THE

DISMAY OF OTHER PEOPLE IN

THE FAMILY, WHO SAID THIS

SINNER DOESN'T DESERVE

YOUR LOVE.

AND THE FATHER SAID, LET'S

CELEBRATE.

HE HAS RETURNED.

Terry: MAYBE THAT'S

THE THING WE ALL NEED TO

DEAL WITH, IS THAT WE

DON'T DESERVE HIS LOVE.

WE CAN'T GET ENOUGH.

AND YET IT IS THERE.

WHEN YOU NEED A MIRACLE IN

YOUR LIFE, THAT'S WHAT YOU

NEED TO UNDERSTAND IS THE

GOODNESS OF GOD.

IT IS WHO HE IS.

HE IS NOT JUST LOVING.

HE IS LOVE.

AND THAT'S PRETTY HARD TO

TOTALLY UNDERSTAND.

BUT MANY OF YOU NEED A

MIRACLE TODAY.

SEVERAL OF YOU SHARED THE

DESPERATE SITUATIONS THAT

YOU'RE FACING.

I WANT TO SHARE ONE FROM

VIRGINIA.

SHE POSTED THIS ON OUR

Facebook PAGE.

SHE SAID, "PLEASE PRAY FOR

MY NIECE.

SHE HAS SUFFERED FROM

CHRONIC HEADACHES FOR

ABOUT 10 YEARS.

SHE CAN'T REALLY EVEN

FUNCTION BECAUSE OF THE

CONSTANT PAIN SHE IS IN."

AND GLENDA WRITES AND

SAYS, "PLEASE PRAY FOR MY

FRIEND AMBER.

SHE IS 29 YEARS OLD, WITH

A STAGE FOUR

MADULLABLASTOMA, AND WE

ARE ASKING FOR A

MIRACULOUS HEALING."

Andrew: AND HERE IS

ONE, "PRAY FOR MY HUSBAND,

THAT HE WOULD FIND HIS WAY

BACK TO GOD.

HIS HEART IS HARDENED, AND

HIS LOAD FEELS VERY HEAVY

ON OUR MARRIAGE AND ME.

PRAYING FOR RESTORATION."

WHATEVER YOUR NEED IS, IT

IS OUR PRIVILEGE TO LIFT

THEM TO THE LORD.

FATHER GOD, FIRST WE LIFT

UP DELYMA AN DELMAR AND CASES LIKE

THIS, WHERE HER HUSBAND IS

FAR FROM THE LOVE OF

GOD -- NOT FAR FROM THE

LOVE, BUT HE IS IN A RIFT.

WE DON'T KNOW WHAT CREATED

THIS DIVIDE, BUT WE KNOW

YOU DESIRE TO STEP IN AND

SHOW YOUR MERCY AND YOUR

GRACE.

NOW, LORD GOD, FOR

MARRIAGES THAT ARE IN

TROUBLE, WE PRAY YOUR HOLY

SPIRIT INTERVENES.

FOR MARRIAGES WHERE A

SPOUSE IS PRAYING FOR

RESTORATION, LORD, GOD, WE

KNOW YOU HEAR IT.

AND TERRY AND I, IN JESUS'

NAME, CLAIM VICTORY FOR

THESE MARRIAGES AND WE

WILL SEE YOUR HOLY SPIRIT

INTERVENE IN JESUS' NAME.

Terry: FATHER, WE

WANT TO PRAY FOR

VIRGINIA'S NIECE, WHO HAS

BEEN SUFFERING WITH THESE

HEADACHES.

WE DON'T KNOW THE CAUSE,

BUT WE KNOW THAT YOUR HAND

CREATED ALL THAT IS.

SO TODAY, JESUS, IN

RESPONSE TO OUR HEART CRY

TO YOU, WOULD YOU JUST

EXTEND YOUR HAND TO HER

NIECE.

WOULD YOU JUST LAY IT UPON

HER HEAD, AND WOULD YOU

BLESS HER TODAY FROM

HEAVEN WITH WHOLENESS AND

HEALING.

GOD, WOULD YOU JUST TAKE

THAT BAND OF OPPRESSION

OFF OF HER HEAD.

AND, GOD, I JUST PRAY THAT

YOU WOULD SET HER FREE.

JESUS, YOU SAID YOU CAME

TO SET THE CAPTIVE FREE.

SURELY SHE HAS BEEN

CAPTIVE FOR 10 YEARS.

WOULD YOU, AS ONLY YOU CAN

DO, EXTEND YOUR HEALING

POWER TO HER.

AND WE ALSO WANT TO PRAY

FOR AMBER, WHO IS 29IARIES

OLD29 YEARSOLD WITH THIS STAGE FOUR

CANCER.

WE SAY, ALIGN YOUR BODY

WITH THE PERFECT WILL OF

JESUS CHRIST.

GOD, WOULD YOU SET IN

ORDER EVERYTHING IN

AMBER'S BODY THAT IS OUT

OF ORDER, EVERY CELL,

EVERY BUILT O BIT OF HER D.N.A.,

SET IT IN ORDER.

THERE IS NO OTHER NAME WHO

CAN TOUCH THIS ALL.

WE JUST ASK THAT YOUR HAND

OF HEALING WOULD BE

EXTENDED TO HER.

THAT YOU WOULD GIVE HER

LIFE AND SHE COULD RAISE

HER CHILD IN THE LOVE AND

AMMUNITION OF YOUR LOVE

AND GOODNESS.

DECLARING YOUR GOODNESS

AND DECLARING YOUR POWER.

WE PROMISE TO GIVE YOU THE

GLORY FOR ALL OF THESE

THINGS.

FOR THOSE WHO ARE PRAYING

RIGHT NOW, FATHER, WHO

THEMSELVES HAVE NEEDS, WE

CORPORATELY, GOD, LIFT

THEM UP TO YOU, AND WE

ASK, JESUS, WOULD YOU DO

WHAT ONLY YOU CAN DO?

WOULD YOU BE THE

MIRACLE-MAKER TODAY?

WOULD YOU BE THE ONE WHO

COMES AND STEPS INTO THE

MIDST OF OUR LOSTNESS AND

OUR PAIN AND OUR

HOPELESSNESS AND OUR NEED.

AND, JESUS, WOULD YOU GIVE

NEW BEGINNINGS TODAY.

WOULD YOU MAKE PROVISION

FOR THOSE WHO NEED THAT,

GOD?

WOULD YOU FORGIVE THOSE

WHO ARE ASKING FOR

FORGIVENESS.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, LORD, THAT YOU

ARE OUR ALL IN ALL, AND

YOU ARE AVAILABLE.

WE ASK THESE THINGS IN

JESUS MIGHTY NAME.

AMEN.

Andrew: AMEN.

I JUST FEEL LIKE THE HOLY

SPIRIT IS SAYING, ABIDE IN

ME.

DON'T MAKE IT SO

COMPLICATED.

ABIDE IN MY LOVE.

IT IS NOT ABOUT

PERFORMANCE.

IT IS ABOUT A

RELATIONSHIP.

"JESUS LOOKED AT THEM AND

SAID, WITH MAN, THIS IS

IMPOSSIBLE.

BUT WITH GOD, ALL THINGS

ARE POSSIBLE."
