Multiply: The ‘Factors’ of the ‘Product’ [MissionsFest 2018, week 2]

This weekend at Eastbrook Church I concluded our annual missions festival, Multiply: MissionsFest 2018, with my weekend message: “Multiply: The ‘Factors’ of the ‘Product.'” Our theme comes from the words of the prophet Habakkuk:

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. (Habakkuk 2:14)

Last weekend, October 13/14, Dr. Paul R. (Bobby) Gupta of Hindustan Bible Institute (HBI) in Chennai, India, began the missions festival with a strong message on multiplication.

My message connected Habakkuk 2:14 with Acts 1:8, taking the metaphor of mathematical multiplication to ask: what factors are necessary for the product of the knowledge of God’s glory filling the earth?

You can view the message video below. You can follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast.

“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.” (Habakkuk 2:14) 

The ‘Product’

  • earth filled
  • knowledge of God’s glory

 

An Aside on Being “Witnesses”

 

Three Key ‘Factors’ of the ‘Product’

  1. Coming to Christ (Seed)
    • One-time
    • Daily
  1. Becoming like Christ (Roots)
    • Christ’s character in us
    • Christ’s character from us
  1. Moving with Christ (Fruits)
    • Proclaiming (word)
    • Embodying (deed)
    • Planting (legacy)
