#14 UNDERSTANDING GREATER LOVE: WE NEED DREAMERS... DREAM ON...
I CAN ONLY IMAGINE... THE LOVE GIFT
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
John 15:13 (KJV) Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
John 15:13 (MSG) This is the very best way to love. Put your life on the line for your friends.
I LOVE GOOD IMAGINATIONS... EVERY GENERATION NEEDS SOME GOOD DREAMERS...
I CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE POSSIBLITIES OF A SERVANT IN THE HANDS OF A MIGHTY GOD?
DO WE REALIZE EVERYTHING AROUND US STARTED AS AN IDEA IN SOMEONE'S MIND?
Genesis 37:19 (KJV) And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh.
A friend of mine told me often: WE IN THE USA ASK THE WRONG QUESTIONS?
He said we ask: WHERE IS THE GOD OF ELIJAH?
He said: I ASK WHERE ARE THE ELIJAHS OF GOD?
WHAT IS A DREAMER...
Starting fires is very hard? A match?
Improve the kerosene lamp? The light bulb?
Write a letter? THE TELEGRAPH? THEN THE TELEPHONE...
Walking is hard and slow? Horse? Buggy? Automobile? Airplane? Jet? Rocket?
President John Kennedy said:
SOME PEOPLE SEE THINGS THE WAY THEY ARE AND WONDER: WHY?
I SEE THINGS THAT COULD BE AND WONDER: WHY NOT?
Kennedy also said:
ASK NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU,
BUT ASK WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY!
A FISH PLACED IN A SMALL BOWL WILL STAY SMALL?...
A FISH IN THE POND CAN GROW BIGGER?
MANY DESIRE TO BE A BIG FISH IN A SMALL POND?
SOME ARISE TO BE A LITTLE FISH IN A BIG LAKE?
GOD CALLS US TO BE A BIG FISH IN A BIG OCEAN? THE WORLD?
THERE IS A RULE THAT IS AS EFFECTIVE AS THE LAW OF GRAVITY...
IMAGINE TODAY THE BEAUTY OF THE GOLDEN RULE...
There is a rule that could CURE every WOW and SIN in this world...
Imagine a world of love and kindness?
Luke 6:31 (KJV) And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
Luke 6:31 (MSG) "Here is a simple rule of thumb for behavior: Ask yourself what you want people to
do for you; then grab the initiative and do it for them!
COULD YOU IMAGINE A WORLD WHERE WE ACCEPTED THE GREAT DUTY
AND HONORED THAT?
CAN YOU IMAGINE MEETING JESUS?
CAN YOU IMAGINE BEING ONE OF THE FEW PEOPLE THAT MET JESUS AND WALKED AWAY SAD?
We dictate the mood that we walk in by our WORDS and DEEDS.
This wonderful young man came to JESUS...
JESUS HAD COMPASSION AND LOVED HIM...
JESUS SAW THE POTENTIAL IN THIS YOUNG MAN...
Mark 10:21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy
way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and
come, take up the cross, and follow me. 22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved:
for he had great possessions.
NO SADDER WORDS OF PEN OR TONGUE THAN THE WORDS: WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN!
IMAGINE A WORLD THAT LOVED TO FREELY GIVE...
Matthew 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils:
freely ye have received, freely give.
THE LOVE GIFT WITHOUT THE GIVER SEEMS SO EMPTY!
BUT THOSE THAT CHOOSE TO GIVE --- HELPS MANY.
1. The giver helps others when they give their love gift.
No gift no matter how small is ever forgotten!
