Bible Story on Love (Luke 15:4-7: The Lost Sheep):Jesus told this parable:“Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home.

I Could Be Great

“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” – John 14:12 [NIV]

There’s a very cute commercial on television for Purina Pro Plan. The words “I could be great” are sung as these cute dogs are shown on the screen. The commercial is suggesting that you may have a good dog, but with Purina Pro Plan, you could have a great dog—this will increase the potential of your dog. The dogs are shown leaping, soaring, reaching new heights.

As I watched, I remembered the promise to each of us—that we would do “greater things.” We might be on a path where we don’t see the “greater things.” But each of us has potential through the Holy Spirit to do “greater things.” Don’t focus so much on the particulars of the “greater things.” Instead, focus on Christ, through Him everything is held together—through Him, we soar, we reach new heights.
