Happenings On the Jesus Saves Social Network

What Is Your Dream?
By Min. Antonio Allen

Harriet Tubman, the former slave and great African-American abolitionist who helped to free many others during her lifetime once said this, “every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” I like that quote because to me that describes the life of the late great poet, prophet, and preacher Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He was a dreamer who desired to change the world.
It was on August 28, 1963, 50 years ago this year, that King shared his dream with the world. On the footsteps of the Lincoln Memorial, as King was in the middle of giving a speech to those who had come to Washington to share their frustrations, King sensed that his audience was becoming bored and restless. His speech wasn’t resonating like he wanted and the people weren’t responding to what he was saying. So, he shifted his speech and began to talk prophetically about a dream that God had deposited into his sprit; King began to deliver perhaps the greatest speech of all time:
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal. I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today. (More)

Morning Thought: "Be Loyal to Your Royal Family"
Greetings Beloved Sister Angela, It is joy to be friends here.You and your family you're in my prayers always. We are part of God the Father and Jesus Christ's Family. That is where we belong. We belong to the Family over which Christ is placed, under God the Father. Jesus Christ is the consummation of God's determined loyalty to His gracious covenant-relationship with His people. Christ is faithful and loyal to the Father, and the Father to Him. We have the wonderful opportunity to be part of this faithful and loyal Family. The training grounds for it is here and now — in our own households, and in the household of God. Loyalty means enduring commitment to a person over a long period of time — often with the implication of the commitment persisting in the face of obstacles. We certainly see the obstacles in members of God's church — in sickness, from principalities, from others, and from our own human nature. Loyalty means enduring commitment to a person over a long period of time —often with the implication of the commitment persisting in the face of obstacles that threaten the lasting commitment. It is good that we share the common goal that is to reach others with the Gospel. I hope by His Grace and mercy you will pray for our small Bible Study group and the orphans in our home based care. His Grace is all sufficient for us all. . Give my love to your beloved family.
