We Review Greater

In Greater, Steven Furtick introduces his mind shifting plan for how to approach God. Basically a creative, applied Bible study based on the life of Old Testament prophet Elisha, Greater tells you why the best way to achieve great things for the Kingdom is to focus on faithfully doing the little things.

Jesus words in John 14 vs 12: “Whoever believes in me will do the things that I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these,” is a truth in two parts. The 12,000 strong pastor of Elevation Church (in Charlotte, North Carolina) shows how the greater is conditional on the apparently lesser. With reference to his own personal church planting experience, Steven uses Elisha’s story to show that, no matter how unrelated or even a trivial a task may seem, your commitment to the unglamorous spadework is essential to building God’s kingdom on Earth. This might be a metaphor to you and I, but for Elisha it was literally true as Greater explains.

Facing the armies of their Moab neighbours, the Israelites set out on the larger task of defeating their enemies in battle. But instead of fighting, Elisha set the Israelite soldiers to the lesser task of digging ditches. In the night, it poured with rain which was soon uselessly swallowed by the sands of the desert… except in the Israelite camp, where it filled the ditches. The next day, Israelite men and horses entered the conflict refreshed and with a battle winning strategic advantage thanks to that small act of digging ditches. 'Big vision small steps' is the message of Greater that helps you think ‘inside’ the box with stories and inspiration to win big victories through small conquests – mostly within yourself.
