We wrapped up our 4 part series entitled “Small Things With Great Love” this past Sunday. Our final message was on “Embracing the Possibilities”. The possibilities of what God’s Love can do (In us & Through Us). From 1 Chronicles 4:10 we talked about the expanding of our territory. We then moved into Jeremiah to discuss being on the potter’s wheel and being formed and reshaped (we also watched this video).
I used an illustration from one of our national tragedies in 1917 – The Halifax Explosion – to explain how important it is for us all to work together to rebuild, improve and bring transformation; and I quoted from the 1917 poster that said “We shall never rebuild Halifax unless we ALL WORK”. We finished off our talk with Jesus’ example from John 8:1-11 of a small thing with great love where he scribbled in the sand and then went on to say from John 8:12 to be light to this world. Our hope is that we could passionately say to those around us to “follow me as I follow Christ” (1 Corinthians 11:1).
