Unlimited


I am in Sydney at Unlimited... pondering the deep realities of Eternity In Him.
Jesus is amazing. And I'm struck again by the reality that He is more than enough - He is sufficient in every way. I've realized that we spend much of our lives looking down and not much looking up... those of us who are 'practically minded' can even under-rate the 'super spiritual' among us... but, I'm convinced it's not an either or situation... we need both.
We fix our eyes on Jesus - to eternity and then we walk out His Kingdom - NOW, on earth as it is in heaven.
Without giving too much away on tonights main speak I'll give you two things:
1. Gunilla Eckberg (look her up) a Swedish force for the rights of women... says to change any society you need to first have a vision for the change... HELLO - eternity!
2. C.S. Lewis "If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this."

So, we are well positioned to change the world... how's your vision?

Hi my name is Jessie and I don't get to read you as often as I like. I have that quote from C.S. Lewis displayed in my library on the outside stacks...nothing will get accomplished in the name of heaven if heaven is not the central thought and impetus. Youa re very right.
Glad to know your spirit and heart were uplifted by tremendous speaking. I look forward to your postings...thank you for being so faithful to them.
Shine for Christ in all you say and do. Embrace your day today!
