Religion - Christian Life - Spiritual Growth
Stephen Furtick, pastor and founder of the growing Elevation Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, believes that Christians can be greater. I wholeheartedly agree and that is why I chose to read this book. Furtick says, “Most believers aren’t in imminent danger of ruining their lives. They’re facing a danger that’s far greater: Wasting them!” He, then, proceeds to talk about how God will bring the greater life to you. It may come through hardships and setbacks. We will have to burn the plows from our old lives to see what God will do in our future. This book is full of great thoughts like, “His greatest ambition in leading you into greater things isn’t that you would know what to do. It’s that you would know who He is!” Furtick uses the life of Elisha to show how God can bring us from good to greater. This book is inspirational and motivates others to want greater things in their walk with God. But I am not sure that this book really covers what John 14:12 is really all about. I felt like Furtick gives us this verse and then goes on to show only part of what the verse was really all about. Nevertheless, I do think many will be encouraged by the message of this book.
I received this electronic review copy from Waterbrook Multnomah and Edelweis for my honest review.
