Are you ready to open your imagination to the possibility that God has a vision for your life that is greater ?

We all have honest moments when we're gripped by a desire to feel that what we're doing matters more. That who we are matters more.

And according to one of the most shocking verses in the Bible, Jesus wants the very same thing for every one of us:

" Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these , because I am going to the Father ." -John 14:12

That single promise--"even greater things than these"--should be enough to shatter our acceptance of spiritual mediocrity. Unfortunately, most believers have only tried and given up on vague notions of greatness... then settled into a life that's just good enough .

Good enough = Baseline living that is marked by mediocrity, stuck in spiritual survival mode, and controlled by complacency.

Greatness = Vague, unrealistic aspirations of doing better that don't work in real life and lead to endless frustration.

But there is a third way.

Greater = The life-altering understanding that God is ready to accomplish a greatness in your life that is entirely out of human reach--beyond anything you see in yourself on your best day, but exactly what God has seen in you all along. 

In Greater, Pastor Steven Furtick draws on the biblical story of Elisha to empower you to:
   * Take a God-given dream from idea to reality
   * Stretch your limited resources and abilities in ways you never thought possible
   * Replace the images of yourself that keep you feeling stuck in the past
   * Make a significant impact with your life starting today, rather than making endless plans for tomorrow that you never get around to

If you're tired of being ordinary, it's time to dream bigger. If you're feeling overwhelmed about where to begin, it's time to start smaller. It's time to ignite God's Greater vision for your life.

I am a fan of Steven Furtick, and the book is very good. But my problem with all such books now is they are forgotten quickly. The message is good, but it gets tiresome. If you really want to be greater you need to stop reading these types of books and take action.
