Three men escaped shipwreck and found themselves
stranded on a desert island.
As they were walking along the beach, one of them
found a bottle.
When he took the top off of the bottle, POOF –
out came a genie!
The genie said he’d give each of the men ONE wish.
The first man said, “I wish I were back at home with my wife!”
POOF! He was gone!
The second man said, “I wish I were back at home getting
ready for my wedding!”
POOF! He was gone!
The third man said, “Wow. It’s lonely here without my
friends. I wish they were back!”
One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after;
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of
my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD,
and to inquire in his temple.
LIGHT from the WORD.
Just WISHING something will not necessarily make it happen.
But, WORKING towards a goal is a worthy effort.
You and I can never by our meager efforts ATTAIN eternal
life in God's Holy Heaven.
But, that eternal life is GIVEN by our Lord to those who
surrender to Him.
When we surrender to Jesus as Lord, then we are given
the DESIRE to see the COMPLETION of salvation which
is living with Him forever.
Our lives become CHANGED!
Our DESIRES become changed also!
ONE WONDERFUL DAY, those who have surrendered to Jesus:
*will gaze upon "the beauty of the LORD;"
*will inhabit God's Holy Heaven forever;
*will join in praising Him for His mercy & salvation;
*and live eternally without sin and its effects!
As Pat Boone used to sing:
"Everybody's gonna have a wonderful time up there!"
Let us so live that the realization of THAT day initiates
ACTION in THIS day!
Let us “seek after” that day by living THIS day
for our Lord!
So, don’t you want to take someone WITH you?
Tell them about Jesus!
Tell them about this DESIRE He has placed in you!
