GOD'S DREAMS FOR YOU - 2



May these brief reflections inspire you to give Christ all your thoughts time and talents.



A GREAT MAN




Few men have walked this earth with the heart of Hudson Taylor. 1832-1905 spans a time of almost unique Christian endeavour from a slight man given to extended bouts of ill health. It is his undying self -denial that dreamed and then delivered to a quarter of a billion Chinese, the good life giving newsof Jesus.

This man of prayer and faith walked in suffering, poverty and hunger. It was he who said ... "it is not death to die".



A GREAT TRUTH




God has a deliberate place for you. He dreams of where it is good for you and Him. He dreams of a fully devoted follower. He dreams of a close and intimate relationship with Him. His deep desire is to walk beside you in your work for Him. (Acts 17:26-27) In fact he deliberately chooses to place you so you will reach out to Him.




A GREAT DREAM




Jesus wants us to tread new ground,
He wants us wide of the steeple,
Jesus offers adventure for those He's found,
For beaten paths are for beaten people.

(with apologies to CT Studd & David Livingstone)




A GREAT THOUGHT




Christ is either Lord of all or not at all.
God does not convert us to simply leave us in comfort or convenience.
Christ calls us to live supernatural lives then we will not be bound by the natural.

(apologies to Jenny Taylor)
