the year was nineteen sixty seven young preacher from Chicago and heard stories of the great the great work that had been was being done and written by Spurgeon and Mueller so young Dwight L Moody made his way across the Atlantic to visit England and Ireland and to see the work that was being done it was in his first visit to Britain that Dwight Moody heard the words that set him hungering and thirsting for a deeper Christian experience and marked a new era in his life the words are spoken to him by a man by the name of Henry Marley the well-known evangelist they were sitting together on a public park bench in the city of Dublin Ireland the words that Henry Varley spoke were these the world has yet to see what God will do with and for and through and in and by the man who was fully consecrated to him the world has yet to see what God will do with and for Andrew and him and by the man who is fully consecrated to him and that as a movie left this interaction these words were ringing in his ears and he thought he said a man a man bought movie he did not see a great man or a learned man or a smart man but simply a man in movies not in his heart I am a man lies with me myself it lies with the man himself whether he who is who is whether he will be fully consecrated to God I will try my utmost to be that man is marked in a change in his life with his words still ring in his ears Moody made his way back to on to the two to the United States but not before meeting another of evangelist in Ireland Mister Julie who he was introduced to four eight oh by a friend and when he is revealing that white movie the young reacher from Chicago the question Mister Bewley asked Dwight 's friend was this is this young man all oh what do you mean by oh friend asked is he out and out for Christ from that time Moody 's desire was to be open of Jesus what is it mean to be no a no it might mean sometimes hitting out of our comfort zones it might be sometimes cleared our calendars to do what God asks us to do it we came back to Chicago with a desire to be oh one oh to make his life a life that was fully concentrated the God of the world has yet to see what God can do then Moody was determined that it would see through him and Moody 's hunger for a spiritual experience was deepened by the preaching of Henry Moorhouse the young child preacher from England who came and visited Chicago soon after many returned to America Moody invited him to take a revival series of seven nights in his church and Henry Moorhouse preached on the text John three sixteen number he thought he knew the Bible anybody knew John three sixteen back we had a powerful ministry movie had ran orphanages and schools in a large large ministry in the Chicago area but that Bernie Psalm eleven God like you've never seen it before every night is excellent John three sixteen ten again in Genesis it went all the way to revelation showing how the story in the Bible is the story of God loving the world God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believe in him should not perish but have everlasting life God loved the world through the prophets and the patriarchs is an wholly amended pleading with them to give the messages and then he sent his only son to die and when needed they even killed by the people he was sent to say God still loved the world God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believe that in him should not perish but have everlasting life you see I believe that John three sixteen describe the dimensions of God 's love now we don't have a week of of of nightly meetings here to dwell upon this we only have a few meager moments but if we take this verse apart we notice what did God love God so loved the world that tells us the bread of God 's love God so loved the world is there anyone excluded from that love is there anyone that that might not be included in the love that God is given in fact I don't believe it is there is an bit that these the amazing thing is even though God loves the world and its all-inclusive and it comprehensive and exhaustive even though God loves the world that does not diminish his ability to love us individually I read in the footsteps of Christ page one hundred the relations between God and each soul artist this is an fold as though they were not another soul upon your share is watching not another soul for whom he gave his beloved son you might fail how can that be how to alumni so much walking care so much about me as that is the same as if I were the only one living how can that be well if we think about the sun the sun shines and not we've all felt the sun shining some of us more than others some of us want to feel the sunshine more than others life happens not want the sun shining directly on her dermatologist but the fact is that we've all felt the sun shining how much sunshine have you felt and when you felt that sunshine you thought you know what I'm glad I'm enjoying the sunshine those people that aren't getting it because I'm taking it all ever feel that way your feel guilty for taking too much sunshine do you know that you can enjoy the sunshine the sun shines on all of us and none of us have less or more and that's the way God loved God loves us individually we receive his love as as full and distinct as if they were not another on earth to share his watch care and yet that is not diminish for anyone else the love of God God so loved the world the breath of God 's love note that that he gave in this my friends describe the link of God 's love how far was God willing to go he was willing to empty all of heaven and one he was willing to give the precious life of his son by his life and death twice achieve even more than recovery from ruin wrought by sin it was Satan 's purpose to bring about an eternal separation between God and man is in Christ we become more closely united to God than if we had never fallen Christ became an eternal part of the human race he is called the son of man he is the one who is who is forever a part of the human family for Albert to retain his human nature he is that the days man between God and humanity he is the one who is reconnected us represented by the symbol of Jacob 's ladder Ray connected us with heaven in Christ the family of earth in the family of heaven are bound together Christ is glorified as our brother and heaven is enshrined in humanity and humanity is in bosomed in the heart of infinite love this is how Christ has brought us eternally close to the throne because God was willing to give that sacrifice for all of eternity one thing for Jesus they argue I'm thankful that God was willing to go to that link to save you and to save me God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever what dimension of God 's love is whosoever described I believe it describes the debt that because none are so fallen into sin but they cannot be reached by God 's love stepped sign of the times an article I read these thoughts do not entertain the thought that because you have made mistakes because your life is been darkened by errors your heavenly father does not love you and will not hear you when you pray he says him that cometh to me I will in no wise for no reason cast out his heart of love is touched by our sorrows and even by her utterance of them take to him everything that perplexes the soul nothing is too great for him to bear for he holds up worlds he rules of the affairs of the universe nothing that in any way concerns are piece is too small the notice there is no chapter in our experience into the dark for him to read their is no perplexity too difficult for him to unravel none listen to this none have fallen so low none are so vile but that they can find deliverance in Christ the demoniac 's advocate era in the place of prayer could only utter the words of Satan but yet the hearts unspoken appeal was heard no cry from a school is unheeded friends I don't care where you than what you've done what certain you made it committed there is no one who is excluded from the celeb there was no one who was fallen so low but that Jesus can save and rescue their soul from sin and that means you because got got Christ not only love that the world and the alligators son but he says whosoever believes should not perish have everlasting life the bread the link the depth of God 's love finally we see this order believes in him should not perish but have what everlasting life what dimension you think we still have remaining of God of friends at the height the plan that God has for you they are beyond our wildest dreams first rankings to them verse nine says that as it is written high is not seen nor ear heard neither ventured into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those hours because of God 's love that he has a plan for us to experience the life which was his before he became a man seven days seven days Mister Morehouse Creek John three sixteen from him in and pastor movies church enclosing the seventh sermon that he preached from John sixteen he said the following my friends from whole week I've been trying to tell you how much God loves you but I cannot do it with this for stammering tongue if I could borrow Jacob 's ladder and climb up into heaven and asked Gabriel who stands in the presence of the Almighty to tell me how much love the father has for the world all he could say would be God so loved the world that he gave his only begins and whosoever believe in him should not appear to have everlasting life it's that love that we remember when we think about it that love it only can melt us and and and change your heart hearts to have that kind of love for our brothers and sisters today's communion Communion 's time in which we remember the love of God for us the condescension of God the lengths to which he was willing to go the depths to which
