Dr. Tom Kinnan, Lead Pastor, BreakPointe Community ChurchWe live in a world filled with weights and measures, scales and rulers, measuring cups and odometers. We measure everything. We count…we assess…we number…we calculate. For us, life is filled with boundaries and limits…starting points and stopping points. The only thing that seems limitless is our own ignorance that seems to multiply with time. When we measure things, they seem easier to control…to replicate…to govern. Measuring helps give us some level of precision, but measuring can also mislead us into thinking we are the ones who determine outcomes. In the midst of our tightly regulated society, God has called us to live a life beyond simply what is measured. That’s how Christ lived. As we peel back some of the layers of Ephesians 3:14-21 and talk about the dynamics of living in the realm of the immeasurably more, we will do so with this thought in mind: Living in the immeasurably more requires moving from the confines of self to living in the expanse of God.

Living in the immeasurably more

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

  • How to be centered in a world without limits—Ephesians 3:14, 15
  • Preparing to be launched into the infinite—Ephesians 3:16, 17a

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

  • What kind of soil does it take to raise disciples?—Ephesians 3:17b, 18
  • How do you fit a Boeing 747 in your garage?—Ephesians 3:19

Thursday, December 6, 2012

  • There’s more than a squirrel in that engine!—Ephesians 3:20, 21
  • The Tassels—Mark 5:21-34

ML HillardLook down at your right hand and then your left hand. Imagine that one represents the absolute necessity of the Holy Spirit’s gifting and scriptural anointing. The other represents your experience and skills. Combined, the Lord uses both to enable you to have an effective ministry “grip” and, most of all, be blessed. For many, “anointing” is all sufficient. And it is necessary—as it must be—or the results are but carnal. But also, acquiring effective personal skills to be more effective is to your ministry as effective Bible knowledge is to your teaching the Word. I have known many of you over the years, coming from similar history and background. Others I am yet to meet; but when together, I am personally and always enriched. I greet each of you who will be part of “The WGM Gathering” this December with a humble desire for us to learn from each other and thereby all better “equipped” because of our time together. I have had no other prayer than this. Looking forward to meeting you all, I am as always, your WGM servant, ML.
