****There is still time to enter! Winner will be announced tomorrow, January 25th! Read on for details.
If you are still with the Greater Online Bible Study, let me salute you! Great job. This is a super big eye-opening book! Hard-core. Challenging. Awesome.
We are now at the end of the book, Chapter 12, Strike the Water and the Epilogue, These Bones. When Elisha struck the Jordan River with his cloak, that was the sign he was ready to step into the future as a prophet in his own right. What does it mean for you to strike the water and move into the greater future God has planned for you? What is your next step? (Question #1 from reflection questions) Funny how we are finishing the study Greater, but we are beginning our lives of Greater. How do you feel about going for greater in your life? Are you ready? What are you excited about? (Question #2 from the reflection questions)
I’m so sad to finish this book for a few reasons. First, Pastor Steven Furtick is the pastor of my church. My family is on fire for Christ because of him. My kids LOVE going to church and volunteer on their own. I respect him so much. I see him live his faith…and his insecurities. This book study has been very special to me. But also, this study has changed me. I’ve decided not to settle for mediocre, I’m going for greater.
Today I’m asking everyone to post a comment. How has Greater changed or affected your life? Would you leave Pastor Steven Furtick a note in the comment section of this blog a note telling him about it and thanking him for an amazing book? I’m going to compile all the notes and send them to him and I really really really want everyone to participate. Let’s bless and encourage him, ok? Everyone who does this will be entered to win our entire 2013 Online Bible Study book package. That includes each book we will be studying this year: a copy of Let. It. Go. by Karen Ehman, Stressed-less Living by Tracie Miles, What Happens When Women Say Yes to God by Lysa TerKeurst, and A Confident Heart by Renee Swope. And you’ll also win a purse-sized Bible.
