I read this story this morning in RADIO INK! WOW! So very inspiring! Makes me miss radio so very much! People helping people. This is such an awesome example of such true love for people! The love of Jesus! I really beleive if we all will stop and pay attention, God is trying to teach us to love each other more and more.
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another:
just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
By this all people will know that you are my disciples,
if you have love for one another.
From Drf. Jim Denison at FGGAM this morning:
“A wide door for effective work has opened”
What could you and I do in these days that would be most memorable long after the pandemic is over?
Author James Clear publishes a newsletter each Thursday that I commend to you. Yesterday, he quoted Eugene Schwartz, a brilliant advertising executive, who explained how effective ads work: “Let’s get right down to the heart of the matter. The power, the force, the overwhelming urge to own that makes advertising work, comes from the market itself and not from the copy.
“Copy cannot create desire for a product. It can only take the hopes, dreams, fears, and desires that already exist in the hearts of millions of people and focus those already existing desires onto a particular product.
“This is the copywriter’s task: not to create this mass desire—but to channel and direct it.”
In these days of fear and anxiety, our greatest need is for the hope and help Jesus provides. Every person you draw closer to him is someone whose life will be changed in this life and the next. Every time you share God’s word with someone, every time you pray for someone, every time you offer an act or word of encouragement, you are making an eternal difference.
Paul told the Corinthians, “A wide door for effective work has opened for me, and there are many adversaries” (1 Corinthians 16:9). I believe he would say the same if he were with us today.
Despite our “many adversaries,” will you step through the doors God opens to your witness and ministry today?
