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?

Multiply by Dr. Bobby Gupta [MissionsFest 2018, week 1]

This past weekend at Eastbrook Church, we kicked-off our annual MissionsFest with special guest, Dr. Paul “Bobby” Gupta from Hindustan Bible Institute. Dr. Gupta’s message engaged with our theme verse from Habakkuk 2:14:

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord
    as the waters cover the sea.

He also leaned upon two other verses within Habakkuk (1:5 and 2:4) to paint a picture of God’s call to entirely follow God into the new things He is asking of us even as the world around us changes. The message was largely a call for the church to be a disciple-making community in every way.
