Greater by Steve Furtick

The title of this book grabbed my attention right away.  "Ignite God's vision for your life".  Isn't that a mighty and bold statement?
I have read other books by this author and love the way he takes a verse from scripture and makes it shout a greater promise for me.
He mentions the life of Elisha and compares this great prophet to what we can do in our life for Christ.  Wait, wasn't this the Old Testament and long, long ago? How can I compare to this man who received a greater blessing by the great prophet Elijah? Why Not?  Steve points out John 14:12. " ..anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these.."  We are not greater than Jesus or even Elisha for that matter. But we can do greater things.
If you are stuck in a rut or tired of complacency, I recommend this book.  It can stir your passion, faith and vision for your Christian life.
Many times I get excited after reading a book. I vow to change, only to go back to the same thing I was doing before. This book sparked something inside of me that wants to keep this power and greatness in God that will allow me to be greater.
