Summary: Have you ever dreamed of more? Jesus said: Let us GO TO THE OTHER SIDE... The storm raged high, but know there is MORE ON THE OTHER SIDE.
#1 BECKONED TO THE OTHER SIDE?
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
This is lesson #1 of a two part lesson...
Fodder for these sermons was adapted from a lesson by:
Zollie L. Smith, Jr., Executive Director of Assemblies of God US Missions
"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get that they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it." Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931-2005
Mark 4:35 And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them,
Let us pass over unto the other side.
This lesson is not about SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW!
Nor is this lesson about THE GREENER GRASS SYNDROME...
If you are not HAPPY HERE, YOU WILL NOT BE HAPPY THERE...
THIS LESSON IS ABOUT KNOWING GOD HAS THE OTHER SIDE ...
A PLACE WHERE THERE IS MORE ... MORE THAN WE HAVE KNOWN.
A GREATER PRESENCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT...
A GREATER MOVE OF A HOLY GOD IN OUR DAILY LIFE...
THERE IS "THE OTHER SIDE" --- MAY JESUS HELP US GET THERE...
I. LOOK OVER THERE... THAT IS WHERE I WANT TO BE... ON THE OTHER SIDE!
I AM AT POINT A. I HAVE TRAVELED TO POINT B. YET I KNOW THERE IS MUCH
MORE THAN WHERE I AM... THERE IS POINT C? D? E? --- Z? THE Nth degree?
HOW CAN I GET OVER THERE?
Mark 4:35 And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.
 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.
 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
An urgent call to attend...
Summon by a gesture.
To make a SIGNAL TO GAIN ONE’S ATTENTION...
To communicate, visit,
To make an announcement
To invite, or make an appeal,
How will I get from here to there?
To make one’s way...
The act of going from here to there.
Distance traveled in a specified time frame.
The place or goal to which a person or thing is going.
The object of a person’s ambition or effort.
In sports the area where one directs the effort to attain a score.
The thing intended.
II. IF WE ARE MAKING PLANS TO GO TO THE OTHER SIDE WE MUST DETERMINE:
AM I GOING TO BE A SPECTATOR? A DICTATOR? A COMMUNICATOR?
A GOSSIP-TATOR? OR A PARTICAPATOR?
Mark 4: 36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships
A. Have you ever noticed how many FAT ARM-CHAIR QUARTERBACKS there are?
There are a few people exerting every effort they have.
The team exercises and lifts weights. Then they practice endless hours.
They study the opposing team’s strategies and game plans.
They develop a purpose and come together to function as one unit.
The team listens to the coach and respects him.
Then on game day they come to seek the GOAL...
AND PRESS AGAINST THE OPPOSITION AND TRY TO WIN...
B. Then there are those that talk about:
The coach was too hard at practice and I quit...
You didn’t play my son... ?
Why did you do that... ?
There are many quick to CRITIQUE everything done?
C. We need some team members that will PARTICIPATE AND CO-OPERATE.
We need QUARTERBACKS, we need LINEMEN, we need WATERBOYS...
