At the end of your life when it's all been said and done, there are no more trivial things to worry about, no more deals to close, no more problems to solve, no more people to impress, there's only one thing that's going to matter ... the most important thing. It's the only foundation you can build a meaningful life upon. It's the only fuel that powers a deep and lasting relationship. The Bible calls it the greatest and most important value in life. In 1 Corinthians 13:13 it says, there are three things that last forever, faith, hope and love, but the greatest of these is love. We are starting today what I believe is going to be most the soul-challenging, life-altering, world-rocking series we've ever done at Woodlands Church. Today we start the Love at Last Sight Challenge, and over the next month Chris and I are just going to share from our heart the passion of our lives, and that's to help people build deep and rich relationships with God and the people closest to them, because at the end of life that is all that really matters. That's all that matters, and it's all that really has made the difference in our lives, because you have to build your live on Biblical love to have love at last sight. There's no other way, and there are so many misunderstandings about what real love is. You know, we say I love ice cream. I love the Texans. I love my wife. When we put that all together, love has really lost it's meaning. And so we are going to look at what the Bible says about real love, the biblical definition of love, and then we are going to put it into our lives, because it's been the whole secret to our relationship with our kids, to our relationship with our dearest friends and our relationship with each other over 26 years of marriage. Now, we're also going to have a lot of fun in this series. In fact, we are going to open up with something a little fun, because ten years ago Chris and I did a goofy video, just a silly spoof of a song by Sony and Cher, "I Got You Babe", and it became the most popular and requested video we've ever done. Go figure! It was just so life-changing. And so Chris and I this week, to show you that we're still just as in love and even more than we were ten years ago, we did a re-make of that. Get ready! I got just as injured as I did last time. Get ready for your life to be changed. Just watch.
They say we're young and we don't know
We won't find out until we grow
Well I don't know if all that's true
