Day 5: Pray For More

Bible Reading: Luke 11:1-13 As we round off our Surge series today, I want to challenge you to pray! You see, the conversations of more will not merely happen based on the strivings, schemings and strategies of human wisdom- it will happen based on the intervention of heaven on the earth. In our human strength, we can only go so far. We are needing of God! The truth is it takes God strength and God’s grace and everything God to…

Day 4: Work For The More

Bible Reading: John 5:16-23 Over the last few days, we’ve tried to lay out a template of what the Bible shows us about the more that God calls us to. We’ve demonstrated the burden / desire that God expects us to live with for more; we’ve shown how we need to live our lives creating space and opportunity for more, and we’ve also learnt how we must live every day in a huge Holy Spirit-fueled expectation of more.

Often time, we deal with wounded expectations.…

Day 2: The Space For More

Day 1: A Burden For More

Bible Reading: 2 Timothy 1:1-18 I got engrossed recently looking around a major construction site, and especially focusing on the consistency of every one person doing something little again and again, and all that it contributes to the overall building. We hear Christian fancy words like ‘more’ and shout a big ‘amen’ to it, but it’s important we set the right context to it.  If you think about it, there’s more that you honestly don’t want! When the food tastes…
