Description de l’éditeur
Founder and Global Senior Pastor of Hillsong Church and author of LIVE LOVE LEAD shows how, with God's power, you can believe and achieve a life that exceeds every earthly expectation. When you surrender control and follow God's guidance, you become empowered and equipped to do the impossible, reach higher, and go further than you could have ever imagined--giving Him all the glory.
By building our lives around godly principles, surrounding ourselves with wisdom, and living for a cause greater than ourselves, we can effectively live out God's purposes and have an enduring impact. As Brian Houston has personally discovered, when we depend on Jesus as the source for our identity, our lives can be a lasting legacy that maximize the gifts He has given each of us as unique individuals. There is More is for anyone who wants to be challenged to live with expectancy. Ephesians 3 is a call to release the immeasurable potential within you and the exceeding, abundant, and above plans and purposes of a Holy God that are beyond your greatest imagination. "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen" (Ephesians 3:20-21).
In this inspiring book, Houston (Live Love Lead), senior pastor of Hillsong Church in New York City, encourages readers to expect more out of life. Drawing on his experience growing up in a small town in New Zealand, he asserts that "humble beginnings are the perfect soil for a blossoming and fruitful life" and that "wild dreams" are what will set readers on the path to fulfillment. Houston is strongest when speaking about his own experiences he knew he wanted to minister from an early age and worked 11 jobs during high school to pay for Bible college and using them to illustrate how great things come to those who have patience, faith, and big dreams. Although the book contains plenty of encouragement, Houston's exuberance often gets in the way of clarity. He jumps from his own past to his current congregation and then to underdeveloped success stories such as his section on Jorn Utzon, the originally unheralded architect of the Sydney Opera House with head-spinning speed. In the strongest sections, the author's conversational admonishments (on being of service to others, obedience to God, and being receptive to new challenges) come across like advice from a trusted friend. This action-oriented book will interest readers looking to find more deliberate ways of using their faith in Christ's limitless love to achieve their full potential.
