Bigger and Better than Budweiser Baby!

Interaction, engagement—they are the drivers of advertising these days. Take the 2013 Superbowl: you had the chance to choose the ending of the Audi ad, decide who gets the cool drink in the desert in the Coke commercial, and name the latest Budweiser Clydesdale foal. All with the touch of a keypad.

When God created us, He gave us an instinct for involvement and influence. We are meant to shape the world. Since life offers few opportunities to mold history we grab whatever chance we can to feel the thrill of making a difference—games, controlling other people, political debates, even the fun of voting for Superbowl ads.

The Bible acknowledges this God-given desire and directs it toward praying in faith. Consider three promises:

If two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst. (Matt. 18:19-20)

If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you. (Matt. 17:20)

This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him. (1 John 5:14-15)

By all means have fun with the commercials but press into your bigger destiny—learn to be a history maker through faith filled prayers.

    Well i can understand that, pets are uaulsly very devoted to their masters, and love them very much , just as we are with God, they love us because we take care of their every need, and show them lots of love , again, just as God does with us, this kind of concept would really be useful in helping children understand our relationship with our master and how he takes care of us, thank you
